PA"GE FOUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, 'ARKANSAS Sunday. September 3, 1933 Von Papen Meets Failure In Turkey Nazi Trouble Shooter Unable To Swing Tin-key To Germany's Side By NBA Service Germany's ace trouble shooter, Baron Franz von Papen, apparently has failed in his special mission to swing Turkey away from France and England—and failure is a rare word to this 59-year-old son of a wealthy West-phalian family. Time and again, he has handed important assignments for the fatherland. Frenquently, he has been in trouble himself. Usually, he has triumphed. The United States learned about htm early in his career when, as a graduate of the German army, he was serving as military attach in Washington. It j was just before America's entry in to the World War. There had been a series of fires and explosions in American munition plants, aboard ships carrying supplies to the Allies. Suspicion fell on Germany's military representatives — among whom was von Papen. Germany recalled him on demand. In May 1932, President von Hindenburg appointed him chancellor. The Nazi movement was surging; von Papen had little enthusiasm for it. But he cancelled his predecessor's abolition of the storm troopers, gain-I • ed an audience for Hitler with von Hindenburg—and later got Hitler appointed chancellor under the belief that he could control him. Some said von Popen's direct part- when the baron became vice chancellor under the new regime. They were sure oE it in 1934 when von Papen critized most radical features of Nazism in a speech at the University of Marbug, was forced to resign. Almost immediately, however, he popped into offical circles again— this time as ambassador at Vienna. There he paved the way for the an- schuluss, arranging the historic meeting between Hitler and Kurt von Schuschnigg, then chancelor of Austria. After this job, he dropped from the limelight. There were rumors that he had fallen out with his leaders, fallen into the hands of the dreaded Gestapo, Germany's secret police. Suddenly, last April he was ordered to Turkey as Hiter's envoy. The pudpose: to prevent Turkey from making an alliance with Engand. This task he failed in. Now he has been licked in an effort to recoup his losses—an effort to talk Turkey out of its decision.

It was not 20 years ago that fruit uice was a luxury, accessible—and and emergency at that—only to the 11 or the wealthy. But today it is he exceptional family that does not lave fruit juice on the menu at least once a day the entire year. Canned fruit juices are available on h market, but the housewives in •lempstead county are busy right now storing their pantries with jars of canned juice for use during the nonths when fresh fruit is not avail- ble. The many ways of using fruit juices make them a most valuable product o have on hand, says Miss Lois Scant- .ancl. extension specialist in foods and STANDINGS Hempstead Home Agent Melva Bullington wash carefully. In extracting juice from most fruits, heat the fruit, crushing a part to start the drawing of the j liquid. Heating the fruit increases the yield in juice, intensifies the color and de- velopes a more distinctive flavor, Cook the fruit until it is tender, then strain the juice from the pulp through a heavy cloth. Juice may be pressed out of less solid fruits, such as berries, with a potato masher, food chooper or fruit press. To can, the juice should be poured into sterilized jars and processed by the hot water method. The county home demonstration agent will furnish Uibles concerning the length of time particular fruit juices should be processed. The production of cream, both for home use and for the market, is a very important item in the farm family food supply as well as a very important source of farm incline in Hempstead county. Dairy products, however, are highly perishable, and producers should exercise extreme care in handling milk and cream if they wish to receive the price permium for first grade products, advises Paul Carruth, extensiin dairyman, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture.

Since the fruit season is limited, Miss Scantland, advises housewives to can fruit while they may and offers the following pointers to the inexperienced: Select only ripe fruit since it has richer flavor and is juicer, then meet the following standards: Be smooth and fine in texture; free from undesirable odors or flavors; clean ti the taste; and practically free from sediment. In addition the cream must not be excessively sour and must contain at least 25 per cent butter fat. It is only from cream of this quality that high grade butter can be made. ; Primary considerations stressed by Mr. Carruth in producing fir&t-griule products are cleanliness and proper storage. From the time of milking until the cream in churned on the farm, or until delivered to the creamery, the cream must be protected from bacterial contamination. Clean cows and clcon utensils will help, although, according to the dairyman, all milk and cream becomes sligtly inoculated with bacteria in the process of milking and handling. Some bacteria are harmless, but others will cause off flavor and fermentation, multiplying very rapidly if the product is not stored at a low temperature. The ideal temperature foi storing cream in order to prevenl too rapid multiplication of bacteria is from 40 to 50 degrees farenhcit, Mr. Carruth said. And as a final pointer concerning the production of high grade cream, Mr. Carruth warns that frash warm cream should never be mixed with cream that is cold. Winter is in the offing along with the increased expenditures for fuel, clothing and other items which it entails, and framilies who have permitted the family budget to collect dust during the summer months, will put it back into operation again if they want to keep their pennies their expenditures—a fence over which they leap occasionally, bdt gen- rally staying within the boundary, This is ii general budget and is a good check, but a better budget, the economist advises, may be made by breaking this down into several of the- important necessities of family living, such ns recreation, development— those things which add cultural values to living, clothing, food grooming and medical care. Many families know what their shelter costs in terms of rent or repairs, but other items of expenditures are unknown, few families having much conception of how much they spend for clothing, and how little for go.od grooming, or how much for recreation and how litlte for development, Mrs. Fenton says. So. by breaking the budget clown into the parts .suggested, a more satisfactory spending pattern may be acquired. In this regard families shiuld keep in mind, the Extension specialist points out, that a budget is not. a high board fence to hamper one's outlook, but a guide to a well-rounded living on the available income.

"Why—why, I was the one who brought you here! I£ I"— "Because, Inspector" — Chandra's voice was a gentle purr— "another trait Earl Talbert shared with his aunt, Inspector, was the delusion that, single-handed, he could outwit the world. But now" —the clairvoyant stood, suddenly very tall, it seemed to Christine, over the blustering little man— "he is going to tell the whole story.

Tell them how, you had entered the house vith Mrs. Talbert's own key"— "But how could I?" Mr. Wilmet's cry was shrill with triumph. "Why, she didn't have a ;ey." Jaspar broke a shocked silence. "He's right, Inspector," he murmured. "Mrs. Talbert hadn't .aken her key with her." Christine, watching as if in a fantastic nightmare, saw the lit- ile man freeze as he understood low much he had tokl in those five words; then leap to his feet and dash blindly, straight into the arms of two uniformed men who had appeared in the doorway. need those faked bonds." From a tangle of images, one started out clean-lined in Christine's tired memory. "I think that if you pried up the top of that stone bench at the back of the booth," she saM, "you might find something underneath." When she explained about that first morning—her . heel sinking into soft concrete, Mr. Wilmet'i voluble explanations—the. inspector went to the telephone and gave an order. "Altogether," he said, turning back, "that bird used up enough ideas in one murder to last a good. ed clear. While the mule staggered, coughing out its life, drenching the short grass .with blood, Kit snatched the cover from his rifle, looked to th priming, glanced round at his men. They had followed his example. Already three mules were down. Hastily Kit and his comrades flung themselves prone behind the kicking car- ca.sses, pointing the muzzles of their rifles toward the The ground shook with the beat of 800 hooves, the sunlight glittered on the ling, keen lance-points, and lit up the garish war-paint upon the blotches of color upon the spotted ponies.

Hold on, Joe- Let the Delaware's shoot fust!" . .it would never do to empty all their guns at once. Three shots against two hundred savages! . . Already the horses were so near that Kit could .see t|ic whites of their excited eyes. But the Indians never reached the whites. They could not force their ponies to approach the dead mules. The smell of the blood drove their horses crazy, and the charge ended in a melee of bucking, rearing animals, circling round the trappers, too unruly to allow their masters to draw bow and shoot. Kit's stratagem had saved his band. whispering campaign against people who are doing the best they can, it is certainly a hard thing to stand.
