It was the final game of the season for both teams and was played before a holiday crowd of nearly 5,000 fans, including a large delegation from Hope. Four cf the five Hoi Springs touchdowns rcsullccl from passes, thrown my Paul Longinotti, 1934 all-state quarterback. He threw 17 passes, nine of which were complete.

Bright made both touchdowns. They were Hie result of an assortment of plunges and passes that carried the Bobcats to within a few yards of the Hot Springs goal where Bright smacked thc line to score. An out-of-town newspaper report that Hope scored with most of thc Trojans' second team in thc lineup is erroneous. In fact, Hope scored without the services of its star quarterback, Cargilc, who left thc game in the third quarter because of injuries. It is true, however, that Longinotti was out of thc lineup when Hope made its first touchdown. - Although outclassed by the s-upcrior Trojan eleven, the Bobcats put up a fight and outplayed their opponents in the first and fourth quarters. The second and third periods were decidedly in favor of Hot Springs. Hope threatened twice in the opening quarter, marching to the 12-yard line where the Trojan line held. A few minutes later Hope recovered a fumble and again marched to the 10- yard line, but lacked thc punch to score. Hot Springs opened up in the second period with passes that resulted in two touchdowns. Tho Trojans mixed line play with aerial heaves by Lon- fiinotli to score twice in thc third quarter. Longinotti raced around end in tho final quarter for the last score. His all-round work stamped him as thc outstanding player on thc field. Itright and Curgilc Bright and Cargilc did most of Hope's ground-gaining. Both were handicapped with injuries, Cargile being forced from thc game in the third quarter with a bad ankle and iiijnrcd hip. Bright had a leg injury that hampered him. However, he turned in a great game, offensively and defensively. Anderson, regular left tackle, saw (Continued on page eight) schools and churches, and our good roads Will be dangerous to be on. MRS.

XXX You asked about thc improvement of the roads and the schools under prohibition. Of course, Mrs, Self, these are things we get only when we are willing to pay for them, I think I can show you that' prohibition -has nothing to do with them, one way or the other. The fact is, Mrs, Self, Arkansas was for many years a politically "dry" state and tho same time remained practically at the bottom of thc 48 states in regard to roads and schools. "We got good roads because we put a CVii-ccnt state tax on each gallon of gassolinc; We got good schools because we put a 5-cent state tax on each package of cigarettes. You mentioned a connection between legalized liquor and accidents , on the highways. j All I will ask you to do, Mrs. Self, i One Factor, Says League Anti-Saloon League officials said they dclieve thc liquor decline might be affected by installment-buying, but they consider that thc depression and thc fact that Americans have "lost the habit" arc important factors, too. Leaders of he liquor trade associa-. tions said they had not studied the. problem.

"Bad Condition in Hope" Referred to Crowded Traffic, Not Liquor Business, Declares Inspector Mitchell Reports rcadhing The Star from Nevada county that State Revenue Inspector C. C. Mitchell was being quoted as saying that liquor conditions in i Hope were so bad that "my wife can't go downtown Saturday/afterhbon"' were indignantly denied Friday by Mr. Mitchell in an interview with the newspaper. < Information reaching The Star said that Dr. J. P. Atkinson, of Bodcaw, Mr, 1 Mitchell's father-in-law, was quoting the revenue man to that effect. Mr. Mitchell flatly denied this in behalf of his father-in-law and himself. The revenue agent said: "Neither I nor my 73-year-old father-in-law ever made such a ridiculous statement. "It isn't true, in the first place. "In the second-place, the only time I ever referred to conditions of any kind in Hope was to the crowded traffic condition, when my father-in-law and I were discussing the best time to bring a load of cotton to our city. "If Dr. Atkinson made any statement about Hope it was in connection with the heavy fatality list on the highways over the week-end—and not any statement as regards the Hope liquor business. "My wife, and I have been in the habit of doing our shopping on Saturdays, but with the crowded traffic condition in recent years we have often talked, about switching over to some other day—just as hundreds of others.
