'Hie annual love feast and testimony meeting of the conference will be held lit 9:30 Sunday morning, with Dr. James Thomas in charge. By (iEOIlUK DOUTHIT Associated Press Correspondent The conference Saturday approved a plan to help underpaid preachers of the conference, tentatively assuring all a salary minimum of $800. R. H. Cannon, Little Rock, secretary of n commission appointed last year to make a study of underpaid preachers, said 25 preachers last year received less than $800 each. He said the survey showed it would have taken a little over $4,000 to make up the deficit to pay up to $800 for each of the 25. - . The plan adopted. Saturday calls for life cha?go served by life"prcacKer to be aided to increase his salary half of the amount up to $800, the conference to pay the other half. A commission, composed of a member from each of seven districts, either minister or layman, will administer the plan. Limitation for the benefits arc to members of conference, young men serving on trial or by appointment of a bishop, and local pastors who have served eight consecutive years as supply pastors in conference. Preachers will make up the fund by paying one per cent of salaries annually. H is to bi; voluntary and not an us:.esuiiient. Bishop Moore commented on plan; "If you think you've done something this morning, you're just getting started. However, you're on the right track, but with lots to do. Everyone of my conferences has done something on this problem. But taking money out of one preacher's pocket and [Hitting it into another's is not going to solve the problem. If we're to progress the churches must take care of their preachers.." Bishop Moore ordained seven as ciders Saturday. They are: C. H. Giessen, Bearden; C. H. Gilliam, Gillham; Edward W. Harris, Stamps; V. D. Keeley, St. Charles, James Simpson, Locke.sbiirfi; J. Frank Walker, Emmet; D. L. Wiluox, Mabelvale. Ralph Clayton, Junction City, and Howard Alexander Brooks, Malvern, were ordained as deacons.

"Here's nn order for potatoes that must be shipped tomorrow or 1 lose it. 1 don't like to do that for there's a profit of belter than $100 in it." "How much will it take to swing it?" asked George, "Oh," said Danbury, "about $700. But I've paid out so much this week that I've got only about half that much on hand. If you care to put up half, I'll cut you in on half the profit." "How long would that tic up the money?" asked George. "Loss than a week," Danbury replied. "And you'll make a profit of about GO per cent." "That's worth thinking about," said George. "Here's how it works," said Danbury. "We send a sight draft with the Bill-of-Liirling and the draft will be paid before the shipment is released. Now, it's up to you. You can make a couple of hundred dollars easy enough, if you want to—otherwise I'll just pass it up." It seemed to George an opportunity to make some rather easy money. There was the signed order from a big produce commission house and everything appeared to be in order. "Arc you sure you can get the poln- t6cs?" asked George. "Why certainly," said Danbury. "I can gel them today and have them in the freight house tonight." "When do w6 need the cash.?"

"Then you don't, have to pay for them until they are delivered?" asked George. "Oh, no," Danbury replied, "I already have them under option. We pay off tonight after delivery to the railroad station." Danbury took an envelope out of his pocket, and from it, counted out 5350. "Here's mine," he said. "All right," said George, "just wait till I-go over to the bank. It wpn.'t take .long." ' „.' A few minutes later he returned from the bank with $350, which he handed to Danbury.

Hope scored its fourth touchdown in the third quarter and added its final in the fourth period.

A Russellville player recovered a-fumble on the Hope 20-yard lioc..:iJi Kectori and Salmon drove to the 10. Freeman Stone and Hugh Rf.'csc went through to toss Salmon for a five-yard loss. On the next play a pass placed the ball on the one-yard line. The hard- charging Bobcat line smeared ball carriers for losses on two consecutive plays. On third down, Salmon dropped back and booted a beautiful field goal to put Russellville out in front, 3 to 0.

Answers on Classified Page Roosevelt Faces His Toughest Congress on Monday, Nov. 15th 1938 Elections and Battle for Power Increase Tension Special Session Same Congress That Stopped Him Before STORMY WEATHER Many Issues Confront the • Re-convening- U. S. Congressmen By RODNEY DUTCHKR NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON—The toughest congress with which President Roosevelt has yet had to deal now re-assembles. This is the same Congress which balked the Roosevelt program last spring and summer. It was summoned into a .special session opening November 15 to' enact the same program—minus that court plan. Predictions as to what this Congress will do and as to the extent to which it will co-operatCpiMBmaaagBiaaaaataicm with RooscveltP ^probably aceA—as dangerous as those made last year af ter the huge Democratic election victory, when most oJJ us thought F. D. R could get approximately what he wanted from Capi-j tol Hill. Plenty of stormy weather may be safely forecast, but more legislative re-, _ , „ , , suits than were *«Iney Dutchcr! had from the last Congress seem fairly certain. The issue of centralization of power, both as to expanded federal control and increased presidential powers, will be almost constantly in the foreground. In the background will be general concern with the primaries and elections of 1938, the plotlings of conservatives and liberals thinking in terms of 1940 and efforts of southern and other Democrats to see that Roosevelt doesn't control the next Democratic national convention. Either the domestic business situation or the international situation may lead to developments not now anticipated. The Same Old List The problems before Congress arc all familiar. The proposed wage- hour legislation has as its aim the same chief objective anounced more than four years ago for NRA. Surplus crop control tried first in 1933, is second on the list. The regional development proposal calls for an extension of the TV A idea through the nation. Government reorganization, Roosevelt's fourth special session item, has been talked of and vainly stabbed at for 25 years. Anti-monopoly legislation, if any, will be a new attempt to meet an ancient issue. They're all old, but they're also all hotly controversial. Few will be surprised if no important legislation is passed before Christmas. 'Die special session and the regular session beginning in January almost immediately afterward may be considered as a whole. Diverse and Two-edged The factors to be weighed in speculating as to the extent Roosevelt will get what ho asks are diverse and often two-edged. Absence of the court plan, which gummed everything up in thu first session, is one. The coalition which fought Roosevelt, on the court will not get together again—at Icii.st not without conspicuous absentees. On the other hand, that fight left st-ar.s. The President called the special .st-.s- sion with an obvious burst of self- confidence, based on his reception during his western tour and conviction (hat the people were still strong for him. Yet the point is made that enthusiasm for Roosevelt doesn't mean effective popular support on specific issues and there seems no enthusiastic mass furore over any item on his current program. Congress meets at what may be either side of the half-way point in a business slump and theoretically this should permit the President more scope in sieving economic problems, j But there will also be plenty of nt (Continued on Page Two) Congressmen Are to Convene Noon Many Members Doubt If Program Can Be Completed WASHINGTON—(/P)—Congress will meet Monday to tackle unfinished farm and labor legislation in a special- session already overcast by concern about the business outlook. Although pledge to make crop control its first business there were indications from some moYnbers that possible steps to improve the economic situation are uppermost in their minds. President Roosevelt will send a message to the congress as soon as it meets Monday noon, presumably setting forth his views on crop control, wage-hour bill, government reorganization and regional planning. Many members returning after a recess of less than three months, expressed doubt that even half his program could be completed during the Cession. Palmer Again Is Tenancy Chairman Bailey Appoints Commission Head Who Served Under Futrell MEMPHIS, Tenn.—(#>)—Gov. Carl E. Bailey, here for the. Arkansas-Mississippi football game Saturday, announced Friday night that appointment of C. E. Palmer of Texarkana, Ark., to the chairmanship of an honorary commission for the study of farm tenancy problems: The governor's statement: "Substantial contributions have been made to tiie study of the farm labor problem by individuals and groups in Arkansas. 'It is my opinion that group action is vital if permanent progress is to be made. "The federal government has assumed leadrship in the movement to correct undesirable conditions affecting agricultural income, and it behooves states to be prepared to co-operate in .•iiid to further those efforts. "With that in nu'nd, I am appointing an honorary commission to study farm tenancy problems, and am designating Mr. C. E. Palmer of Texarkana as chairman. "Several members of the legislature, from counties and districts which are vitally concerned, will be requested later to serve as members of the commission. "Mr. Palmer has agreed to take initial steps to call the commission together."

Bedbugs Put Kentucky Supreme Court to Rout FRANKFORT, Ky. — I/I') -- Bedbugs forced Kentucky's highest tribunal— the Court of Appeals—to vacate its regular meeting place Friday. Hordes of the vermin appeared when radiators were turned on in the eapitol early this week. Members of the court expressed the opinion—informally, but without dissent—that flood refugees brought the bugs in last winter. Friday's meeting of the tribunal was conducted in the conference room because workmen combating the army of invaders had torn up the regular chamber.
