That's how Roy Anderson felt today when "vjVUV IflUl C ITlcH for Dessye Fight he received a letter from a Mississippi gentleman regarding Hempstead county's world-famous watermelons. " ** J The letter follows: Well, on August 2<1 I received your letter in which you stated lhat they did grow a watermelon as large as "two niggers," I am beginning to believe that this is true, because I read in the Commercial Appeal where they had grown a watermelon at Hope. Ark., (hut weighed two hundred and sixty pounds (Editor's note: Teh, tch—Mr. Middlcbrooks, somebody has been lying about all of us). That must have been some watermelon. Would you mind telling me the variety of this watermelon, as to whether it was a "Georgia Green Rind" or an "Arkansas Rattlesnake." That watermelon reminds me of a story I read once about a Georgian bragging to a California about the wonderful things they had in Georgia that were so superior. Finally the California!! became vexed and he caught a gopher and put him in the Georgian's bed and then called the Georgian and told him, "Now I know that you have wonderful peaches, bathing beaches and a stone mountain, but never have you seen n bedbug as big as this one." With that he pulled the sheet back and showed the gopher. The Georgian looked at it intently for n few minutes and quietly asked, "That is a young one, isn't it?" I am beginning to think those are young watermelons you all raise in Arkansas. A. M. BOROUGHS.

Tills war map, showing the directions taken by Italy's five Invading armies, also locates Dessye—where today's dispatches say-Ethiopia plans to make her first, and perhaps final, stand against foreign conquest. Dessye appears on the map directly north of Addis Ababa, about half wny between the, capital city and Eritrea, Italian colony on the Red sea. By the Associated Press Fears of a European conflict precipitated by Italy's conquest of Ethiopia were allayed generally Wednesday. , On every hand there was talk of peace. "Behind the scene" conversations between Paris, London and Rome, .seeking a satisfactory solution to end the East African conflict, were progressing Efforts toward peace were given new life by Sir Samuel Hoarc's House of Commons address in which the British government left the wny open for ending hostilities without imposing military sanctions against Italy.

Insurance Men Expected to Fight Petition for Executive Clemency LITTLE ROCK-(/P)-A furlough for Charles Crosnoe, of Hope, serving a six-year sentence for arson, will be requested of Governor Futrell at a clemency Hearing Thursday, it was learned Wednesday. Attorney J. C. Cleary, of Warren, advised the governor he would present a clemency petition signed by several citizens of Bradley and Hempstead counties. The Arkansas Underwriters association is expected to oppose the petition, having requested some time ago that no action be taken until a public icaring is held if Crosnoe attempted to obtain clemency. J. A. Lee, of Banks, Bradley county, is among those asking that a furlough be granted, it was announced at the governor's office. Entered Prison May 21 Crosnoe entered the state penitentiary last May 27, .sand his ; period of service is approaching the total "time" served^by .Jesse Hutson and Chris Wheaton, the last-named '«••• negro prior to their release on executive clemency. , *. Crosnoe, however, was sentenced to six years in the Bradley county arson case, while the other two were sentenced to but three years. Thc case was complicated by the disclosure that U. A. Gentry, state insurance commissioner and fire marshal, wrote a letter virtually promising Crosnoe and Hutson immunity prior to their trial at Warren, in return for certain confessions they made. The trial court disregarded the immunity pledge. ^ i •» Pleads Guilty to Pandering Charge Virgil Dunn Waives Indictment—Is Sentenced to Two Years Virgil Dunn waived indictment by :he grand jury on a pandering charge in Hempstead circuit court Wednesday at Washington, pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to two years in prison by Judge Dexter Bush.
