VOLUME 37—NUMBER 49^1^^ "^«^ »>n> r <*« *»•*•: HOPE, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1936 Sl'.Skifcjr j IBMl £l¥' mV _______ ••, ^^^ Here and There •Editorial B* ALP*. H. S EVERAL years ago there was cabled over to America from Palestine this news-item: The Jews were darning up the River Jordan for a hydro-power project. And a great Kansas editor, William Allen White of the Emppria Gazette, outraged by this mechanical desecration of a river holy to Christian tradition, wrote a plaintive editorial that rang around the world, "Roll on, 0 Jordan, Roll on•!'.' . (S I remember Mr. White's editorial because it symbolized the eternal clash of things ancient with things modern. I remember it, furthermore, because, great American editor that he Is, he reconciled those differences with the thought that men put their faith in intangibles, not substances. River Jordan in Christian tradition will ever be its old self. But Mr. White, considering the physical earth, closed his article with the practical thought that even on sacred Jordan in this 20th century so useful a thing as a hydro-electric plant was inevitable, that modern men might live and prosper in the valley of the Dead Sea. XXX For the last generation Mr, While hnd been one of the great prohibition editors of America—but in the years immediately preceding repeal of the 18th Amendment I read in his newspaper the gravest editorial doubts about the practicability of its enforcement. He came out, following repeal of the amendment, for the legalization of beer. I don't know what his stand is on the rest of the prohibition question.

By EBNUE PYLE NEA Service Special Correspondent WASHINGTON.—About 75 years ago, you might ha%'e been sailing blithely over the south Pacific ocean, when all of a sudden you could have seen, far head, a man riding across the ocean on a mule. Now, the thing to do in that case was not to throw your bottle away, or jump overboard, but just keep sailing ahead. And in a half hour or so, you would have seen that the mule was not. walking on water, but on dry land. It is like this: Jarvis island, 1COO miles south of Honolulu, is a small coral island, a mile wide, a couple of miles long. There arc no trees on it. It is flat, and that highest spot is 20 feet abovo water. It's just a dot in the vast South Seas. People were living on Jarvis in the '60.1. There were even women and children, and a mule. ,Thc island was so low that an approaching voyager could sec the man and the mule long before the land itself came up over the horizon. On Australia Route Parvis is one of three islands—Jarvis, Baker, and Rowland—which the United States thinks would make n fine stopover base for airlanes flying on regular schedule from California to Australia. Some government officials view such a route as n probability within two years. So, the government has been prospecting around among the South Sou islands since last winter. Its men have visited every U. 'S. possession down there, looked the ground over, and loft parties to study the weather. William T. Miller, airway superintendent, of the Bureau of Air Commerce, Department of Commerce, has mado three trips to the South Seas since last March, on the coast guard outter Itasca. He visited eight or ten islands, some inhabited, some not. He picked out three as the most likely, and left men on them. The islands aro the three before named—Jarvis, Baker, and Howland. The solonists are modern Crusoes, with a groat many more conveniences than Robinson had—young Hawaiians who study wind and weather in anticipation of the day when the isles will (Continued on page two) Supreme Court oi America Wr,if| ,.

Coach Ivan Grove, of Hendrix college, one of the state's premier football mentors, will be the guest speaker. Coach Foy H.

Parker said that he personally knows the man who, he feels certain, kidnap- ed the first Lindbergh baby. The • man, he saidi is a resident of Mercer county, an educated German who was suffering a mental distortion "of late midle age when the crime was committed. Parker even supplied part of the suspect's automobile license number. It begins, he said, with L-8. ''L-" indicates issuance for Mercer county, Ladder Clue Assailed The detective, famed for his deductive successes, gave it as his opinion that the police "framed" Hauptmann on the kidnap ladder evidence, Parker contends that the ladder obviously is of the type used in thC peach orchards of Mercer county.
