Dale Wilson, telegrapher since he was 12, has been retired on pension by the Missouri Pacific Lines. When a youth at Hope, Mr. Wilson and three of his schoolmates strung about !'/<! miles of telegraph wires between their homes and oven included the grade school in their practice network, which covered almost all of Ujopc. Between school terms he worked as a Western Union messenger hoy under the late W. B. Dooliltle and Gene Young, now of Little Rock. In 1890 Mr. Wilson became messenger boy at Little Rock for the St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern Railway Company. I Several months later re returned home to complete his telegraphy study. Becoming eligible us » telegrapher he 1 was sent to McGchce in 1892 as night telegrapher. McGchce was then a small town with the depot situated beside a corn field. After doing relief work throughout the stale for several years, Mr. Wilson became telegraph operator at Frcscott in 1900, and held that position until disability forced him to retire last July 2G. He was married in 1896 lo Miss Willie C. Bowles. Their son, W. D. Wilson, is manager of the Western Union office til Mope, and their daughter, Mrs. R. B. Magec, lives in San Antonio, Texas.

There has to be, in such a nation, a judicious and abundant compromise. It is nol at all a question of motives. So far as improving the condition of labor is concerned, America shows the following record of progress: The first labor regulation in the United States was adopted in 1813. The question then lay dormant for a hundred years. The modern era of labor legislation began in 1910, with safety regulations for mines and other hazardous industries; and in 1912 with minimum-wage and maximum- hour laws for women workers in all plants. In rapid succession 15 states passed such labor laws for women. There was a crisis in 1923, when the United States Supreme Court destroyed them—throwing out the women's law adopted by the District of Columbia, the othor states' laws being of course invalidated by the same decision. But public opinion now in our own day has caused the supreme court to reverse itself nnd make good practically every bit of the legislation enacted since 1912. Last year the supreme court invalidated the minimum-wage and maximum-hour law of the State of Washington—but the spring of this year, 1937, the court reversed itself on that specific case, reversing also the whole trend of supreme court decisions on labor legislation. The Washington slate law was uphelp—and the effect of this decision was to validate the law of Arkansas, adopted about 1915, and lhe women's labor laws of all the other states. My authority is only as late as 1029, but up to that year there remained only four stales in all America that had failed lo enact laws governing the minimum wages that might be paid to women in industry, and the maximum hours they might bo worked. Those four stales as of 1929 were Alabama, Florida, Iowa and West Virginia- bill as 1 said, the date of the record i.s 192!). and by this lime these four have fallen, or will, in line. That is the history of labor legislation, and public opinion on the question, in these Uniled Slates. We are today prepared to see federal uuthorily pul behind slate statues on the subject of minimum wages and maximum hours in the lower industrial brackets. iBut that isn't lhe issue in the debate on the Bliick-Cumiery bill. * * -K What this bill proposes, instead of .safeguarding the human rights of the humblest citizens of lhe republic, is simply to set up an industrial wage bureau with powers lo raise or lower wages, and to create or remove exemptions from the act, in whatever industry or individual plain .some politician or group of politicians chose to do so. The Blat-k-Connery bill is, for inslance, a specific threat against every industrial enterprise in thu agricultural South and West. It is a threat because practically all the mass employment of labor, practically all the mosl efficient and cosily industrial machinery which employs high-priced labor to the best advantage, are in lhe North and East. You understand, of course, that when wages go up drastically, (here must be a corresponding iiicrcac.- in productive wealth—in one of two ways, either (1; by greater production of goods through use of labor-saving machines, or (2) by conunanding a higher price for goods. In the lust analysis, a competitive world eliminates lhe second alternative—and the effect of standardizing industrial wages all over America is simply lo wipe out industry that can't afford to buy the grcatcsl labor-saving machines now available. But industry in the South and West is still small and relatively poor. The East and the North have the inside track to the vast investment funds of Wall Street .... Boiled down to u paragraph, the Black-Connery bill says this: You, down there in Hope, Ar- At lhe New Romance rides with Tex Hitter, the famous singing cowboy, in his latest tuneful action-film, of the old West, "Sing, Cowboy, Sing," which will open at the New theater Saturday only with the lovely Louise Stanley; recently featured in "Lady Be Careful," in the principal feminine role. Reminiscent of that epic of the silent screen "Tne Covered Wagon," more than twenty- five expert wagoners and hostlers, were required lo stage the big scenes in "Sing, Cowboy, Sing," which portrays a running fight between two rival freight caravans, as a climax lo the thrills of this de luxe musical western. The story of "sing, Cowboy, sing" deals with the experiences of Tex Ritter as a happy-go-lucky range rider, in protecting Madge Summers, played by lhe glamorous Louise Stanley, from n gang of ruffians who murder her father and attempt to steal her wagon route franchise. How, with the connivance of the sinister leader of the gang, Tex is shot at, jailed and an attempt made to lynch him, while the gang try to stampede the wagon train for a second lime, forms a Ihrill-pack- cd feature in which the singing cowboy star risks his life again and again. Three new wing hits and an old favorite, sung by lex Riller and played by the Texas Tornadoes, provide musical contrast to the thrills with which "Sing, Cowboy. Sing" is replete. "S'ng, Cowboy, Sing," the cowboy ballad from which the picture lakes", its title, is Iht .'ong which has become so popular among western frns, since Ed- •wartl Fimiey, (ho producer of the Tux Ritler series for Grand National, first introduced the singing, cowboy star lo the screen nearly a year, ago in "Song Of the Gringo," Of the new songs to be heard in "Sing, Cowboy, L'ing" there are three, "Twilight Reverie," "Goodbye. Old Paint," and "Cowboy Medicine," in the writing of the two former of which Tex Ritter shares honors with two members of CastingOf f ice For (Continued from Pago One) kan.sas—you aren't industrial.
