Appropriate ceremonies and programs ore planned. High officials of the state educational system are listed for speeches, including W. E. Phipps, suite commissioner of education. Leo M.

Bom In Hempsteiul Born in 1859 on a farm near Washington, Yerger came lo Hope the first Monday in October, 1880, and started leaching school by accident. On that Monday he was on his way to Little Rock to attend Philander Smith college. He was detained in Hope and was asked to take charge of the school, a one-room frame building with about 150 students. The school teacher at Mr. Alphin's guess was in sharp con- tS)flict with reports on the Hcmpstcad icrop, which 1 hear estimated at around 12,000 bales, against 15,000 or so last year. He told me he was almost "a majority of one" in figuring Union county to equal last year's production; but for nearly half a century he has been talking to many individual farmers, and year after year his county estimate comes pretty close to the truth. I was thinking that if this Union county observer knows what he is talking about Hcmpstcad county also may raise more cotton than is being commonly reported at the present time. T.ie crop is very late—but I am told that the late-summer dry spell gave a larger final production on the black- land farms than was expected in view | HOME, Italy.—(/P)—Premier Musso- of the backward spring. | lini indicated his willingness Monday XXX | to overlook the League of Nations' "in- Willing to Give Up Conquest Plan for Part of Area Suggests League Mandate for Old Ethiopia—Italy Taking Other Provinces THE LEAGUE ACTS It Proceeds With Plans for Bulletins "Financial Blockade" of Mussolini's Land A soap manufacturer offered a contest in which the first prb.c was cither $1,000 n year for life, or $10,000 in a lump sum.

Government sources said a League liam Feather in the Imperial Type j mandate over the four provinces of Metal magazine. And this shrewd observer of human nature answers his own question as follows: Anyone except a very aged person, after consulting the interest and annuity tables and surveying the field of investment, would choose the income of $1,000 a year for life. But a young man. confident of himself and ambitious to get into business, might wisely be tempted to choose the $10,000. If his enterprise should prove successful he might, in ten years, increase his original stake by ten times and thus find himself in possession of $100,000. It's the Siblical story of the brothers and the 'talents all over again. The rewards go to those with energy and courage to take their talents and invest them, even though at some risk. Prosperity is measured by the virtues of energy and courage—and not by the talents or dollars actually in hnnd. America potentially has all the dollars she ever had—but she has only lately emerged from a period when, men buried their talents instead of risking them. We are emerging into a new period in which men would once more seriously consider taking the $10,000 lump rum that the soap manufacturer offered—rather than the guarantee of $1.000 L I T T L K HOC K.-(/l')—Slnle Ileultli Officer Dr. W.

A "Financial Bloekade" (Copyright Associated Press) GENEVA. Switzerland.—The financial isolation of Italy was, in effect, decreed Monday night (European time) by the League of Nations' plenary committee of 52 nations. This committee—the League's big | general staff for sanctions—formally | approved the financial sanctions committee's program on loan and credit embargoes aimed at suffocating Premier Mussolini's war aaainst Ethiopia. Two exemptions were included in the sanctions resolution as finally adopted—applying to religious and humanitarian projects. Earlier in the day the League of Nations committee of 18 for "immediate sanctions" approved Monday a project for the financial blockade of Italy. Only minor alterations were made in the text of the blockade resolution as submitted by the League's financial sanctions committee.

Livestock shipments from Hemp- slcad county to St. Louis markets arc going forward at a greater pace than at any time in the past several years. That was the opinion of leading livestock buyers in Hope Monday. It was estimated that 35 carloads of cattle have been shipped from Hempstead within the past 30 days. One buyer said that he could not remember when livestock was moving as swiftly at at present. Only recently five carloads left Fulton in a single week. Hope and Washington are other principal shipping points. Besides carload shipments livestock is being trucked from this county to St. Louis. The price for cattle is about in line with that of last year, ranging from ?2 to S4 per hundred pounds to the farmer—an increase of SO per cent or better over the "low" of 1932. Shipments have been made all this year, with greater impetus in buying the past 30 days. Mrs. C. C.

As the Ethiopians, under the command of Ras Desta Demtu, son-in-law of Emperor Haile Selassie, hurried to attack the left flank of the invaders to prevent the fall of Harar it was reported by Ethiopians here that there had been at, least 10,000 Ethiopian casualties by gas and other bombs.
