Hope Star VOLUME 40—NUMBER 285~ ArkawtM—1'artly cloud], Monday night ami TvAaday; warmer, in northeast portion HOPE, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 11.1939 PRICE 5c COPY Haynesville to Be „ in Top Condition for Friday's Game Secret Workouts Ordered for Wednesday and Thursday HAVE VETERAN TEAM Golden Tornado Squad to be Accompanied by Big Crowd HAYNESVILLE, LH.—Despite Die extreme hot weather, Hie Golden Tor- undo football team is going through .some heavy practice, and i.s in fine shape for the first game of the season with Hope. This game will lie played Friday night, September 15, at Hope, when .1 large crowd of fans will follow the team to that city. Judging from Die practice so far this season, it is very probably that the first string startinR lineup will be as follows: lllythc, left end; Jones, left tackle; fligdon, left guard; Bond, center; Marsh, right guard; Heard, right tackle; Hall, right end. In the back field, it looks like (be honors 'may go .to Pcarce and Tinsley for left half- *6aek; Claunch, full back; Smith quarterback, and Crump, right halfback. The team i.s in good condition, no injuries so far this season, and it looks .like the first game will I:>e opened with full strength against the strong Arkansas team that dealt a defeat to the Tornado in the opener last season. Coach Gayncll Tinsley has been directing the team on passing during the past two weeks, and it is to be seen that they arc responding very well, I'nit still arc far from 100 pc* r cent, and it i.s not likely that the Tornado will depend on the air route lo any extent for some weeks yet. Both ends, Claunch, 135 pounder, and Blythc, also a light weight, are good, atnd it is thought that their speed will offset their weight this season. In the hackficld is Crump, 170 pounds, as right half, and his power will go far toward crossing the goal-line this year. Peace and Tinsley will battle for the honor as left halfback, both having played good games in the past pear, and both are speedy. Smith, 155 pounder, will direct the team as (juarterback. Smith played good hall last year, and i.s showing up good this ."•cason. Coach Tin.sley announced Monday that two days before each game a secret practice will be given, and he asked I he cooperation of the fans in that matter. ThcMrsl .secret practice will be Wcd- ' nesday and Thursday, and fans are kindly requested to remain away from the athletic field on that date. In commenting on the ruling Mr. Tinsley said that tbc coaching staff would introduce a little new stuff, and lhal he could not always tell just who were in (ho groups that usually watch lh<; practice, and for this reason, he is asking that everyone abide by this ruling. They Just Came In Out of the Rain RICHMOND, Va., -.f/1'*— Virginia Conservation Commission employees wondered if their agency had embarked on a new conservation policy when (hey arrived for work and found birds by the score at roost on bookcases, chairs and typewriters. When they summoned janitors to shoo away the visitors from the eigth- floor offices this theory was shattered —the birds, chimney swallows, had used an open window to come in out of the rain.

"Thai will ensure a sensible and locent peace," this informant asserted, but he added that meanwhile jcrmany had but one task in the east, 'to let arms speak and break the resistance of the Polish army." Tliis source said the kind of peace Germany might offer Poland depended "on many imponderables." The spokesman pointed out that Jndor the terms of her treaty Poland :an not make peace alone, but must .-(instill London and Paris. The clear implication was that Po- and could get better terms if the Western powers were willing to call off the war on all fronts, Warsaw Attacked BUDAPEST, Hungary—(/P)—Warsaw was subjected to an all-day airplane, ank and artillery attack Sunday as invading German armies tried to take '.he capital, the Warsaw radio said :arly Monday. Polish Staff Capt. Vaclav Lipinski jroadcast that German heavy artillery lad bombarded the city from dawn to dusk and German tanks in droves liacl attacked the city. Earlier the radio said, 40'air raids were made on the city during the day. Captain Liphiski said Polish antiaircraft batteries had destroyed 15 German bombers which fell ijito the city proper and its suburbs, and declared the defenders had captured nany Germans. The attack had been under way 19 hours when Lipinski came on the air shortly after midnight. The first air raid came at 5 a. in. and was followed by a second at 9:14 in which 70 Nazi bombers were reported over the city. Tajiks Driven Back "After sunset," said the officer, from the suburbs, but were driven back. Two were destroyed and their crews taken prisoner." In what apparently was a master ,'iccc of understatement, Captain Lip inski said; "There is considerable noise." The Warsaw announcer on the air before the captain said the capital was an inferno of bursliny bombs, and that the screams of wounded and dying could be heard between blasts. The Germans were said to have "parachuted spies into the city who were nigyed and bearded." The long attack, came on the third day of the German siege and Sunday night, Polish announcer at Lwow said their important southeastern industrial city, capital of Polish Ukraine, was preparing for a similar siege. Lwow was reported bombed for several hours Sunday night by German aircraft and one section of the city was reported in flames. Earlier, the Polish army general headquarters declared in a radio broadcast, that "our soldiers are fighting valiantly aud making a great defense on all fronts." "Warsaw is ready for a long defense," the announcement said. "Our country i.s in flames. In the west the fight has now really started." . $1.14 Allotment on School Funds Several Revolving Loan Fund Applications Are Approved Little Rock—(A 1 )—The State Board o/ Education Monday authorized Jl.H per capita apportionment, from the common school fund for the first quarter of the fiscal year.

Civ,: Major Battle at Warsaw Admitted by Berlin Chiefs Invaders Forced to Retreat From Suburbs of Warsaw, Say Poles ANOTHER"SHIP SUNK Submarine Torpedoes British Freighter—All Hands Are Saved NEW YORK — (IP) — The United States Line received a radio saying the British freighter Blairlogie was torpedoed Monday off the Irish coast but the 32 members o£ the crew had been saved by the United Stales liner American Shipper. The 'message said the crew reported they were treated with consideration by the submarine commander. By die Associated Press The Poles Monday broadcast the assertion that after four days of bloody fighting they had forced the German invaders "to retreat from some Warsaw suburbs." While the battle of Warsaw went on, the German and French armies see-sawed inconclusively on the Western front. For the first time the German high command admitted that a great battle was in progress in Poland. A com- munique said that thjs was Hearing "its climax and the destruction of the Polish army west of the Vistula river." The German command reported other German gains against the "doggedly defending" Poles. Budapest (Hungary) dispatches said planes, tanks and artillery were massed for.-a^uick drive-on-iwow/" southeast Poland, to cut communications to Eumania, Poland's only possible land-line for outside help. On the Western front, the French and Gertwan forces struck at opposite ends of the 100-mile section between the Rhine and Moselle rivers. The French reported the front was quiet but they had scored one "local advance" on the eastern end of the sector between the Saar river and the Vosges mountains. Germans Check French PARIS, France-OT-German troops were reported Sunday night striking into the traingle formed by the junction of the Mosselle and Saar river on the extreme northern flank of the western front where French troops have advanced farthest into the Saar- land. Fifty miles to the southeast, a general staff statement announced French troops were advancing on a 20-mile sector between the Saar river where it cuts arross the frontier into French territory, and the foothills of the Vos- es mountains. Between these two sectors, German Counter-attacks from the shelter of a maze of coal mine galleries of the saar basin halted the French advance m the vicinity of Merzig and Saar- brucken. Here the French line rested parallel to the Saar river just a tew miles within German territory French Move Up Troops German reinforcements in the Saar which had marched for miles along galleries hewn out of coal, sallied from the mine entrances under cover of darkness. A French General Staff communique issued shortly before noon Joday described (he situation as unchanged." Larger French units moved up from the Maginot line to consolidate the advance positions French engineer detachments, die- mR in under fire, strengthened the captured German fortifications for French use by linking them up with connecting trenches to the rear. Some military observers had the impression that operations on the western front were marking time awaiting outcome of the battle at Warsaw. Poles in France Polish recruiting offices were opened m^Paris under an agreement with he French government to form a;i army for service in France which will ight under its own officers and own 'lag._ Thousands of Polish residents of France crowded into the three le- cruiting bureaus set up here.
