An estimated 40.00 Oltalian troops now are reported in Libya and along the Egyptian frontier, which extends from just beyond Solloum, about 300 miles due west of Alexandria, down to and Including the Oasis of Jarabub, ceded by Egypt to Italy several years ago. S> Barbed Wire Burricr Built Reports also have it that a barrier of barbed wire entanglements has been built by ,thc Italians, stretching more than 200 miles from the Mcdl-. tcrrancan southward until it is lost in the impassable Libyan desert. Behind the barrier the Italians have a series of forts, linked by wireless and a motor road. At the cotat end of this system Italian colonials recently completed a macadamized road which stretches back through Cyrcnalca to -Tunis, more .than ,X20Q, jnilea,..: Mussolini's recent reference to unrest in Cyrcnaica, which lies adjacent to the Egyptian frontier, causing a decision to reinforce troops in Libya, did nothing to improve the Egyptian sense of security. Desert Trails Dangerous Egyptians, troubled by this evidence of warlike preparation by land, sea, desert and air on all sides of their country, wrankly fire puzzled by Italian activity on the Libyan front—at best a sorry stretch of desert almost uninhabited and practically worthless. Indeed communications from Alexandria to the Libyan frontier can be had only over highly dangerous routes which furnish nn indication of the desolation of this part of Afriqn. One route lies along the coast, but the going is extremely bad. Further south from Jarabub a track leads through Siwa across the waterless desert for 180 miles to Mcrsu Matruh, near the oasis of Fnrafra. Another (rail passes through Mogara and thence to the environs of Alexandria. The first of these gives the shortest cut to the const, but the great depression of Kattara is encountered, passable only by those who know it well It comprises an extensive swamp, froro which there is no escape, once one is lost in it. Army Swallowed In Sand Annies have been lost in these treacherous sands. Nearly 2,500 years ngo Cambyscs, son of the king of Babylon, made himself phuraoh and turned his mind to Siwa—then known as the Oasis of Amman. The army he sent to take possession of the place lost its way in the desert and never was heard of again. Conditions have changed little since then. Yet there are many nervous Egyptians and the government respects their feelings. Recently King Fuad's cabinet appropriated $1,000,000 to purchase war materials from Great Britain and it postponed the discharge of soldiers whose army terms are expiring.

You read about these local accidents almost every day in the paper. They are so wide-spread, and they involve so many people who otherwise appear to be normal, careful drivers, that you conclude accidents arc unavoidable where livestock are turned loose on concrete highways. In advocating enforcement of the Hompstcad county stock low The Star has aimed to take a position fair and just with respect to economic conditions today. All our editorials have pleaded for a policy of co-operation. If there are important stretches of fencing to be built along the trunk highways, and the burden is too great for individuals, then public money can pay for it. The newspaper would go down the line on any proposition for public aid. But no aid has been asked, that we know of. The great majority of stock men make an earnest effort to keep their animals off the road. They do so out of regard for the stock, as well as the safety of the traveling public. All of us go up and down these highways. We have a mutual stake in seeing the stock law enforced. And The Star congratulates Mr. Bearden and Mr. Stewart for acting in behalf of the people. vent His Playing for Next Two Weeks By LEONARD ELLIS The Hope High School football team had little difficulty in defeating a lighter Texarkana, (Ark.) eleven here Friday night, 32 to 0. It was the second game this week for the Bobcats, they having won over Arkadclphia here Tuesday night, 55 to 0. The game cost the services of Earl Ponder, Bobcat fullback, who pulled n ligament in the left shoulder. Ponder may be lost to the team for two weeks. The Bobcats, led by their ace ball currier, Tootsie Cargile, had little rouble in scoring after the first luartcr. Cargile Star of Game Besides scoring three of the five lope touchdowns, Cargile's individual icrformnncc furnished three-fourths f the Bobcat offensive. For example, ic took the ball on his own 20-yard Mrs. Muench Had Planned Adoption Maid Testifies in "Solomon Case" of Two Women and a Baby ST. LOUIS— (/P)—A former maid of.Mrs. Nellie Tipton Muench, one of two "mothers" who claim a two- months-old baby, testified Friday Mrs. Muench discussed adopting a baby a short time before she announced the birth of her own son. The testimony was given by Mrs. Kitty Lazaroff, former domestic in the foshionable Muench home, in connection with the habeas corpus application of Anna Ware, an unwed servant girl who has charged that the "Muench baby" is her son. Mrs. Muench announced the birth of a son on August 18, a day after Anna Ware's baby svas born and subsequently disappeared. At the time Mrs. Muench was preparing an ultimately successful defense against a kidnap- ing charge. The maid, since discharged by Mrs. Muench, said the sister of a state Supreme Court judge told her a short time before the announced birth of her son that she was going to see a doctor friend of the Mucnches and was "going to make him believe I'm going to have a baby." Mrs. Lazaroff said when Mrs Muench returned from the visit she contented, "I made him believe it but I had a hard time." Mrs. Muench's husband is a physician. On on other occasion, the maid testified, Mrs. Muench told her of plans to adopt a baby, saying she intended to go to California with a St. Loui.s "society girl" who was to have hei baby there and that Mrs. Muench was to bring it back to St. Louis. in line, was part of program. the "security" I FLAPPER FANNY SAYS: HCO.

They said that because of the sever ance tax, the output of the mines a Bauxite was reduced from aproxi mately 493,000 tons in 1923 to 89,779 tons in 1932. L. U,. Branting, superintendent o: the mines at Bauxite, declared tha talk that Arkansas has a monopoly in bauxite has done the state much harm and was partially responsible for thi severance tax. He said the company could not af ford to place itself at the mercy o the Arkansas legislature and in sclf- dcfcnsc had to look Cor other t'ifkls. Gilbert McCullacli, personal relation manager for the company mines ii the state, explained processes through which the bauxite ore is sent befoix the finished aluminum is produced. He said that Arkansas mines pro duct- only 37 per cent of bauxite usec and only 9. 4per cunt of the world's supply. tors of breath-taking football, the Little Rock Tigers made even Coach Earl Quigley blink in surprise as they annihilated the Hot Springs Trojans, 1934 Arkansas high school champions, 3 3to 12, at Kavanaugh Field Friday night. An approximate crowd of 4,000 including around 1,500 from Hot Springs, was knocked pop-eyed. There was no end of thrills as the Bengals more than matched power with the vaunted Trojans, in the air as well a,s on the ground in a way that made the hysterical audience wonder if the champions were wearing the wrong uniforms. Thai's the wny it looked as the surprising score indicates. Not even the brilliance of Paul Longinotti, Hot Springs superb triple throat quaterback, was sufficient to thwart the black and white jersied Tigers. The tough little Italian rushed over a touchdown in the first period and the Tigers came back to knot the count in the second.

Camden held the The Bobcats outplayed the visitors throughout the game, and rolled up 20 irst downs to two for Texarkana. The fame was played on a slippery field and fumbles were frequent. Hope's first score came in the second quarter as result of a 44-yard drive featuring Ponder and Stroud. With the ball on the three-yard line, Zebras to six points for the first half but weakened in the final quarter. This was Camdcn's frst defeat of the season and sent Pine Bluff on towards a state championship. The first quarter saw Reed run 12 yards for a Pine Bluff touchdown after Camden had been penalized three times for off-side and the Panthers had held three times. Reed faked a pass and then went over. Try for goal failed. 1 That was all the scoring and Camden marched up to the Pine Bluff two- yard line in the first quarter for their only threat. Pine Bluff held for downs. Senator Caraway •> Honors Husband Arkansas' Woman Senator Dedicates College Building to His Memory Harriet Quinner looked up from her knitting.

My Dear Sheriff: Allow me to congratulate you for the courageous stand you have taken in regard to cattle, hogs, horses, mules, etc., roaming loose on our highways. In these days of high speed transportation, these animals have become the most hazardous of all objects confronting the traveling public. I am enclosing a copy of my last safety bulletin as evidence that the Highway Department is cognizant of the fact that too many avoidable accidents are happening with too consistent regularity. Animals loose on the highways are a contributing factor in at least 50% of these accidents. If every Sheriff in the state would show the same courage you have, the accident rate would show a marked decrease. Keep the good work up "High Sheriff," as you will find public sentiment solidly behind you. Yours very truly, CARL C. BURKETT, Safety Director. Ponder plunged, over. Kick for extra point failed.

"You agree with me that nations could and should settle their disputes as good citizens do—'' went on the clergyman. Miss Quinner nodded. "—and yet you refuse to sign a petition calling upon our own country to disarm." Miss Quinner was reversing her needles. Mr. Very had seen her do that hundreds of times, but still he couldn't help looking at, her poor maimed left hand. Now his hostess followed his glance. "I lost those fingers in Yucatan," she said. "I know." "I lost my sister there, too." "Yes, I know that." "She was all I had," Miss Quinner went on. "I've been alone ever since." ***** S HE rose and put down her work and crossed to the tall old-fashioned windows that faced the prim old-fashioned garden. She was a curiously quiet woman, Mr. Very thought. She reminded him of an ocean liner in a harbor—in a world full of panting undecided tug-boats. Mr. Very waited a moment and cleared his throat and resumed. "Some one must lead the way," he said. " 'Thou shalt not kill.' Some one must show that there can be no excuse for murder." He stopped because Miss Quinner so obviously was thinking of her own tragedy. "I want to tell you how I lost my sister," she said. "No one else knows that." "I had understood she was killed in a jungle." "In the bush at Uxmal," Miss Quinner corrected him. "That was just before I came here," Mr. Very remarked. "It was something over ten years ago. The country really Wasn't opened up yet, but Thompson had interested Harvard, and" published a book or two. My sister and I had been in Egypt with my father before he died. I was anxious to compare the Egyptian ruins with those in Yucatan." She returned to her chair but remained standing. "I don't know why I took Florence. She was hardly more than a child, and very gay and romantic. I needed some one like that with me. We spent a week in a rest-house at Chichen Itza, and then we went back to Merida, and engaged an Indian to take us to Uxmal. The man's name was Raymundo, and he drove a decrepit Ford from the end of the railway at Muna. We two women spent the night at Muna, and started for Uxmal at daybreak. "It was frightfully hot, and the road was unbelievably bad. Florence and I were in the back seat of the Ford, and Raymundo sat in front with a double-barreled shotgun beside him. Florence asked him why he had brought that. He said he wanted to kill pigeons." "What did he do with them?" Mr. Very asked. * * * * * "T DON'T know. Ate them, I suppose, or sold them.

Mr. Very inclined his head. He'd heard an outline of the story before, and he was anxious to get his petition signed and go home to dinner.

The French note was reported to have interpreted Paragraph 3, Article XVI of the League covenant as'mak- ing mutual support imperative for any member of the League which might be the object of reprisals by an aggressor nation. This was regarded as meaning France will expect Great 3ritain's instant aid if she ever is attacked by Germany while taking League sanctions in the future. "Avenue of Escape" Officials admitted Friday night that the note assured aid for Britain through its acceptance of "political considerations," rather than through its text, because, they asserted, the French government was careful to "keep a legal avenue of escape open" if it ever needs it. The meaning of "political considerations" was not clear even to Foreign Ministry officials, they admitted. The note, they said, stipulates that Britain will get the automatic asMt- ance of France only in case Britain is attacked by Italy while the former is acting on orders of the League of Nations. Thus, if terrns of the note strict- *s\ ly were interpreted, these sources said, Britain could not efeim French aid instantly if she were attacked before the League should give her fleet an "errand" to do. The note, they said, is so worded that if an Italian attack on the British fleet should be "provoked" by Britain, the questio nof assistance would become a matter for the League to decide as entirely separate and epart from the Italo-EUiiopian affair. Some officials said that, under the wording of the note, an Italian attack on Britain "tomorrow" would not legally assure Britain of automatic aid from France.
