The truck and the driver had licenses. The truck wasn't overloaded. The supply of flares for emergency night-stops was on hand. Nothing was out of the ordinary—but this happened, says Ihc Lamar Democrat: The patrolman took a cigarette from his pocket, saying to the truck drive, "Give me a match." The latter said, "I 'haven't any match." "Come with me," quoth the man of the law. There was nothing for the truck driver to do but go. He was fined, along with the costs, to the tune of $17.50. It was held if he had no matches he couldn't light his flares. So it was the same ns if he didn't have any flares. K stiff battle. -f till *trc«jfth with the exception of Ramsey, who is nursing an injured leg. Reports from El Dorado indicate that the Wildcats. for the first time this year, will be at top speed. Before leaving, Coach Mammons said the team was determined to do its best, regardless of what the outcome would be. The Bobcat mentor predicted the hardest battle thus fur. A big delegation of Hope fans planned to follow the team, Soil Conservation Service Office Is Opened on Friday Temporary Quarters Taken by H. K.

EL DORADO, Ark.—Behind closed i gates, Carl Dalrymple's El Dorado { Wildcats are steaming up for the first j big slate battle Friday night on Rowland field against Foy Hammons' big and powerful Hope Bobcats. For the first time since the opening of the season, the Wildcats will enter the game with n full strength team. J. C. Chadwi'ck, hard plunging defensive full buck, out since the Haynosville same, will start Friday night. Slight injuries suffered by other members of the starling lineup have healed and the Wildcats will go en the field under full power. Powerful Opponent Hope, always a powerful aggregation, is Ihis year even n greater contender fur .stale honors. Foy Hammons, former Ping Bluff, Ouachita nnd Monticello coach, has worked mgnder.s with the Bobcat material. Tlie Hope mentor has always been noted for his ability to produce a ,, swift but powerful running attack and P ii stubborn defense. Running from a short punt nnd single wing back formations, the Bobcat powerhouse is built around Cargilc, rangy half buck who is being touted for all-state honors in Southwest Arkansas. In every game this year Curgile has been the main stem of the Hope scoring drives. Cargile is a triple threat and a star at defensive half buck.

O ur effort win be u> Washington to Hold Open Meeting WASHINGTON — (/P) — Headed by Cully A. Cobb, chief of the Cotton Section, a group of Farm Administration officials and government economists left Washington Thursday for Memphis, Tenn., where a hearing on the 1936 cotton adjustment program will be held Friday nnd Saturday. From evidence obtained at this hearing, officials said, plans for the next program will be drafted, and a decision will bc reached on the acreage reduction to be required of cotton contract singers in 1930. Long conferences on the cotton program have been held here during the past three weeks and officials have indicated they desired a program not greatly different than that of 1935. The AAA designed the 1935 program a year ago on an estimated production of 11,500,000 bales. The national Bankhead allotment was 10,500,000 bales.

The carry-over as of August 1, 1935 was estimated at 9,000,000 bales, and the normal desirable carry-over has been estimated at 5,000,000 bales. Officials said opinions concerning the acreage reduction necessaiy next year have varied widely, ranging from 25 to more than 40 per cent. rnd work out with the landowners farm plans that will increase the fertility of the soil and prevent it from eroding away. Sheet erosion is the greatest menace here and that am probably be controlled best by terracing nnd n liberal planting of winter cover crops and the turning under of such legume crops as vetch, cow peas and soy beans." The £oil Conservation Service has sent out invitations to every owner of n vacant building asking for bids for the rent of adequate office, warehouse and garage space.

Arrangements for the meeting \vcre made by Frank R. Stanley, county agent, in eo-operution with M. W. Muklrow, Little Rock. Extension Ani- Whcn the Red Cross went into the Western dust bowl this spring-scene of a major American disaster—it found folks standing around as though nothing could be done to prevent further loss of life through the dreaded dust- pneijmonia, Albert E\^ns, assistant national director of disaster relief, told Hope Rotary club Friday noon at Hotel Barlow. Mr. Evans, who from his St. Loui: headquarters directs disaster jreliei operations of the Red Cross for the Midwestern area, is conducting a regional conference of Red Cross workers in Hope Friday from the southwest Arkansas counties—one of four re gional meetings in all .Arkansas. A general meeting was held Friday morning, luncheon was taken by the visiting county chapter heads jointly with the Rotary club, while the afternoon session ( also held at the Barlow,' was given- ove£,to a discussion, of disaster relief. Accompanying Mr. Evans from the St. Louis office was Miss Edith Miller, assistant director for the Midwestern area, Roll Call Chairman D. B. Thompson, Hempstead county chairman of the Red Cross, presided over the luncheon meeting, and introduced the Hempstead county Roll Call drive chairman, Mrs. Arthur Swanke. Mr. Evans' speech about conditions in the dust bowl last spring emphasized the need for drastic action in an emergency. The Red Cross, he said, qucikly arranged for dust-protectors for school-children, available at low prices in commercial quantities—but which nobody seemed to have thought about before the Red Cross pointed such protectors out. Residences were dust-proofed by tape and other materials. Altogether the Red Cross accomplished much toward reducing the death rate from dust-pneumonia, Mr, Evans declared. Mr. Evans has been in tire Red Cross service since the World war. A Denver Man Before coming to the Red Cross he was supcrvisior of the Bureau of the Homeless for the City Charities of Denver, Colo.

GENEVA, Switzerland— (/P) —Great Briatain began aplying sanctions against Mussolini's government Thursday, by choking off a broadcast to the United States by Baron Fompeo Aloisi, Mussolini's chief representative at Geneva. The United Kingdom Postoffice, at the last minute, refused to relay his words from Geneva via an English station to the United Slates. Aloisi said ho wished to explain Italy's case in the Ethiopian situation, and desired to give the American people a realistic conception of Premier Mussolini's East African campaign. An American radio hook-up (Columbia Broadcasting System) had been arranged for Aloisi's broadcast, and he was ready to present Italy's case to the American public in a dialogue with Edgar Mowrcr, United States newspaperman and author. They had finished their rehearsal and were on the verge of beginning the broadcast, when a telephone message came from England with the information that the United Kingdom Postoffice had refused to handle any broadcast by Aloisi or any other Italian .spokesman. The broadcast was abandoned. GENEVA, Switzerland. — (ff) —The League of Nations committee recommended Friday an embargo on future arms shipments to Italy and the lifting of the present embargo by some countries against such shipments to Ethiopia. The recommendations were made by a committee of sixteen, which had been organized to decide what sanctions should be applied to punish Italy for attacking Ethiopia. The committee plans to present its suggestions to the League's general staff for sanctions later in the day. If adopted, as generally expected, the embargo against Italy goes into effect at midnight Friday night, The recommendation for an embargo against Italy is based on. President Roosevelt's list of "implements of war." "Overhead" Takes Fund Blockade Means War ROME, Italy.—(/P)—A source close to the government said Friday that Italy will remain in the League of Nations unless sanctions of a military nature drive her out. An economic blockade backed by naval power would be construed as a military sanction, said this source. The government spokesman slated that Italy desires to remain in the League, but wishes to modify the League's construction so that it will be "effective for maintaining peace rather than being an instrument of war as it now is." k -it T«ok- Kdl JdCK SOU County, Cltlllg LO- ReCOlTl JMlUlll LITTLE ROCK— (/P)— The executive committee of the State Welfare Commission met here Friday with Chairman Henry Armstrong announcing that "no unusual matters" will be discussed.
