All have lived, that is, but one—Ralph Roil ton. Th° Kraft corporation will return with its own plant this month. The decision has been made—the only detail to be arranged is a satisfactory building at a satisfactory price. Tile late Ralph Routon and Roy Anderson, as presidents of Hope Chamber of Commerce, were leaders in the original dairy promotion plans of 1928-29. Mr. Routon made a personal investigation of the new dairy development in Mississippi, and M Anderson persuaded Mississippi lead ers to come to Hope to speak to 01 people. The original Hope venture stnrtw of course, in 1929—and that was fatal year for many new venture But the Kraft corporation, while ; had to withdraw from this and othc ventures at that time, remcmbcre that the operating figures for Hop showed promise.

To Fly Atlantic WASHINGTON -(/F)- British and American interests were reported near agreement Friday night on plans for establishment of transatlantic mail and passenger service by air. In contemplation was a co-operative arrangement between Pan-American Airways, already flying the Pacific, and Britain's Imperial. Airways, private concerns. Both would enter the field with a reciprocal arrangement for use of landing, facilities. Nearing the end of a deadlock of several years, delegates were talking of an agreement under which the American concern would be permitted to use Bermuda for a stopping and refueling point, while the British company would be licensed to land in America. With experimental flights still necessary to show the most practicable routes to be followed, there was dis- J sion of an arrangement permitting h companies to land their planes in Newfoundland and Ireland. However, for the present the emphasis was on the .Southern route'by Bermuda and the Azores. The discussions were confined to a committee of experts from Great Britain, Canada, the Irish Free State and the United States. They will present recommendations to a full meeting of the delegations at the state department Saturday. FLAPPER FANNY SAYS; REG. U. b. PAT.

It is "Mutiny on the Bounty"— and the story happens to be true, so true that it appears under two headings in the encyclopedia here on my desk. I have not seen the picture, but I've read the story. It's the kind of « story no picture company could possibly ruin—and it so happens that the metropolitan critics rate the picture as actually made, the greatest thriller of modern times. At that, however, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer have done no more than justice to the story of the most magnificent mutiny in the history of the sea. The historical facts of 150 years ago were worked into a modern account last year ,-md this by two authors writing for the Saturday Evening Post. They wrote two serials, the second being a sequel to the first. I read these. The first was called "Mutiny on the Bounty" and the second was called "Pitcairn Island"—but it's all o. story. The motion picture, of course, covers both the actual mutiny and the later adventures which befall the rebellious sailors when they landed on Pitcairn island with their native girls and proceeded to set up a new civilization.

HANES Associated Press Staff Writer LITTLE ROCK. - (ff>) — An appeal brought by the slate last week in a Jackson county suit ultimately is expected to bring forth a supreme court ruling which will affect vitally the financial affairs of Arkasas counties. The question involved is whether county treasurers and their bondsmen can be held liable when the treasurer cashes warrants which have been issued in excess of the county revenue for a fiscal year. The supreme court decision, scheduled to be handed down in the next few week^ will deal only with the issue of whether circuit courts have jurisdiction in such cases. A ruling that they did would send the case back to Jackson county for trial on its merits, with another appeal .in prospect regardless of the outcome. "As far as we are able to determ- ne, the question of whether a treasurer can be sued when he pays warrants in excess of county revenue for the year has never been decided by our supreme court," Bryan Sims, chief county am "ntnnt for the comptroller's department, said. The suit was filed by Prosecuting Attorney Roy Richardson, seeking payment of approximately $500 from former Jackson county treasurer Austin Murphy..and the Fid'olity.and Casualty Company of New York, his surety. The prosecuting attorney charged that Murphy redeemed and cashed .wo warrants which were void because the year's revenue had been expended. He alleged that the treasurer's failure to refuse to cash the war•ants was a ncgelct of official duty and a breach of bond. One «f the warrants involved was ir 5499.10 and the other for $1.50. The defendant's demurrer, contending hat the circuit court did not have urisdiction, was sustained by Judge VTarcus Bone and the suit dismissed. Sichardson appealed in.'the name of he state, asking the supreme court to order the case tried in lower court. The complaint said the warrants did lot constitute a lawful charge against :he county because the $36,611.61 crcd- ted to the general fund had been ex- laustod by the allowance of "other claims chargeable to the fiscal period ,o which these orders and warrants are chargeable."

Startling View of Things to Come Is Portrayed by Film Famed Author's Novel of Future Is Filmed by British Company IS OFTEN CORRECT Wells Remembered foi Correct Prophesy on Aviation in War By MJLTON BRONNER NBA Service Staff Correspondent LONDON, Eng.-H. G. Wells has always been known as the author of large heavy books telling all about what has been, or of sprightlier books telling what his fertile mind imagines will be. But now this 69-year-old man who has written some 85 books, including his own outobiography, finds himself beginning another chapter in his life He's gone overboard for the movies. London and New York arc looking forward to the January premier of Wells' first picture, "Things to Come." Word has gone around that this pro- , duction, worked out between Wells I and Alexander Korda, Britain's ace director, is going to have an astound- " ing array of mechanical gadgets and futuristic settings, some bigger and more imposing than Mr. Wells'.

There will be aerial combats and development of a "peace gas" that just insuring will be strange cities of 2054, built inside mountains, without windows, a jumble of machinery for sunlight, air and every necessity. There will be a "space gun" built to shoot a pair of lovers up, over, and down the unseen side of the moon, to land again in the Pacific. The vast machines for digging out the subterranean cities will make your eyes pop out. Some of the sets are the biggest ever built on either side of the Atlantic. Many are "shot" from the top of a specially-built 100-foot tower, and the "space gun" is shown on a scale indicating a length of 1500 feel. Meeting Korda by chance, Wells bo- came impressed with the possibilities of the movie through the persuasive exposition of Korda. The result was that Wells took his "The Shape of Things to Come," and rewrote it into a scenario. He rewrote it twice more. He did more than write. He went out on Hie sets and learned something of the picture business as they went along. He made changes in the plot as they were found necessary. He has become a 24-karat film fan, and is likely to co-operate with Korda in (Continued on page three) U;S f Holds40%of ;l9rl<yp Store tide of Precious Metal' Still Flowing Toward American Shore WASHINGTON — (#>)— Imports of gold—in an ever-increasing tide—have swelled America's holdings to a new high of 10 billion dollars.

The statement, made in a letter November 14 to Bishop G. Ashton Gld- ham of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany, N. Y.', but published only Friday, was interpreted as principally a reaffirmotion of the administration's neutrality policy. The statement did not mean a departure from the traditional policy of avoiding foreign entanglements, it was said here, nor was there any acknowledgement that this government has participated in a concerted international effort to end the Italo-Ethiopian war by sanctions. The president said that this government in many respects has "gone beyond the actions so far taken by other nations." The president's letter to Bishop Oldham was written in reply to one from the churchman late in October declaring America should "not let the world down" by standing aloof in the East African war situation. Mr. Roosevelt said he agreed with the bishop in his contentions. America, he said, is not "standing aloof from what it considers its obligation in the East African war It "stands aloof," he said in effect, merely insofar as is necessitated by its cletermin- ation to follow its own independent j tuplets' father is figuring on suing his methods in dealing with the matter, wife for divorce?" inquires Introcutor The president also agreed that "the only sure way for us to keep out of war is to have no war anywhere."
