PRESCOTT, Ark. - Three damage suits for large sums npiwnr on the docket of the Circuit Court of Nevada (ounly which convenes Monday for its January term. A. D. Durham IKI.S brought suit against the Missouri Pacific Railroad Guy A. Thompson and E. II. Wise for $:iO,(l()(l damages, charging that when bi.s car stalled on the tracks at the St. Mary's crossing and was slcuck by train No. 22, November 14, 1937, the defendants failed to keep the proper lookout and lo ring the engine's bell or sound the whistle, that the crossing is dangerous, that the engine's headlight wa.s defective, and that he was permanently and painfully injured. Tbe case is set for trial January •(. 'Hoy L. Duke has brought suit for $35.000 against H. E. Luck and H. J. Ilein/. Co.. charging that he suffered from ptomaine poisoning from caling chili, manufactured by the Heinz company. This case is scheduled for January 5. The suit for the largest amount is that of Miss Jessie E. Briggs, who is asking $70,000 damages against the Missouri Pacific Transportation Co., If. B. Crisp, Jr., and the Terry Dairy Company of Arkansas for alleged injuries received when the Missouri Pacific bus on which she was a passenger June 5 collided with a Terry truck between Benlon and Hot Springs. This case i.s also scheduled for January 5.

It got nowhere in Ibe last regular session, received the cold .shoulder in the recent special session, and may or may not do any better in the next regular session. Roosevelt will continue to fight foi lii.s defeated wage-hour bill and may win. or may lose. No one quite understands what the differing House and Senate farm bills are all about and (.veil if a workable bill be brought out of conference, the friends of wage- hour legislation will try to block action on any farm measure until the "Cotton Soulh" is willing to vote for a wage-hour bill. There will be a hot fight on modification of the corporation surplus profits tax. but whether the result wil tend nearer to the administration's idea of minor modification or to the ultra-conservatives' aim of repeal is slill unpredictable. j Roosevelt will seek to master Con' grcs.s again, but whether he will try lo do so witb a slap on Ihe wrist or a Icfi book lo the chin—and whether cithei i blow will be effective—is just anothci I of those fascinating questions 1938 of- 1 fers. G. O .P. C.Hins Certain Politics: Congressional elections are coming in November and numerous Mould-he presidential nominees foi HI-10 will be .strutting their stuff at every opportunity. Normally, in such a year, the out-of- l«nvor party makes congressional gains The Republicans arc practically certain to improve their poor position in both Senate and House, especially the latter. The "third term for Roosevelt" question i.s still .static, except for a grow• ini; impression that F. D. R. may again be a candidate if he continues to find , Ins aims blocked in Congress. Southern and northern eosnervativcs are I joining in huddles to prevent Rose- sell from receiving a third nomination or dictating a successor. No Sign of Labor Pence Labor: No good news is in prospect for labor a.s long as the C. I. 0. and A. F. of L. fail to reach some peace agreement. Their failure to do so seri- ou.sly handicaps the administration. Depression is depleting the ranks— and dues eollection.s of both groups'. There isn't the slightest sign of peace. Both C. 1. O. and A. F. of L. are attacking the National Labor Relations Board, the best friend either group ever had. Labor a.s a whole is likely to suffer grievously in 1938, although it i.s likely-- a.s a result of political organization by Labor's Non-Partisan League—to be more influential than ever before and t omake perceptible gains, in the 1938 elections.

Here is the New Year's Eve Preview 12 p. m. at the New Theater, co-starring hit team of Freslon Foster and Joan Fontaine, appearing in RKO Radio's "You Can't Beat Love." Foster plays the pare of a wealthy small-town playboy who becomes a mayoralty candidate as a lark but once in the fight goes after the city grafters with a vengeance. An obstacle in his path to the mayor's chair is the daughter of the incumbent mayor, running for re-election. Foster falls in love with her shortly after getting into the political race. Directed by Christy Cabanne and produced by Robert Si.sk, "You Can't Boat Love" is from the story "Quintuplets to You." by Olga Moore, with screen play by David Silverslein and Maxwell Shane.

M'Gill of Fulton Dies at 60 Funeral Service Is Held at Washington Late Thursday Arkansas (Continued from Page One) E. Brown reported thai he found nothing but muddy water when he descended lo the river bed. Modern Darius Green Hot Springs produced a modern clar- ius green in the person of Floycl Echols, 25-year-old mechanic. With the benefit of only two hours of flying instruction, Echols took off in an old plane and managed to stay aloft until he reached Benton. There he crashed but escaped with minor injuries. Asked why he dived the plant at a farm house several times before the abrupt end of his flight, Echols replied that he had a hunch he was going to crash and wanted to attract attention. Cotton Plant, Ark., seemed headed for fame when a report was circulated that >i negro woman living on a plantation near there had given birth to six babies. After many telephone calls, a negro doctor who had treated the woman was located. "Six babies," he exclaimed, "Naw- sub, boss, she just had one and that makes six in the family."

An investigation showed more than UK) leaks in the state bouse roof was responsible for disruption in both bouse and senate. The legislature, appropriated $20,000 for repairs. During tbe same rainy season when flood waters were threatening Eastern Arkansas, tbe stale senate adopted a memorial to congress asking new aid for drouth sufferers. A negro child born at Marumna ,'hile the flood waters were at iheir '. crest in that section was named "Highwater." Floods resulted in at least the tein- Siim A. McGill.

'He is survived by his widow and one son, Sam Allen. The funeral service is being held at Washington Thursday afternoon, the Rev. Mr. Williams. Presbyterian pastor, officiating. It's a confusing era. A young fellow listed bi.s profession a.s trucking and the employment agency got him u jot: in a ballroom. porary postponement of the machinery of the law at Jud.suiiia. When Sheriff Tatcm Plant attempted to arrest a man for tbe theft of a quantity of ham. lard and bacon, the man waded into flood waters and defied the sheriff to come after him.
