PAGE SIX HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS • Thursday, Battle QNE GOAL OF TVA REVEALED IN PICTURES in Precincts Begun., Democrats Have Edge in; Organization—Repub- ' licans Have Money By BYRON PRICE Chief of Bureau, The As"r,clnie-;l Press. Washington With so many first-magnitude political bombs bursting in the air, major public attention has been diverted from the more laborious and perhap; rnofe important spade-and-bayone Work down in the trenches. It remains true in politics, as in war, that while spectacular ncnal demon rtrations may contribute to victory ii is the infantry which must be reliec i-ror. to t?.ke and hold ground, and th- infantry of politic.-, is going into action. Back in the home precinct.-, ur through the county and state organi zations. the skirmish lines are formin- and are trying to advance. The n? tiona! managers and those who aspir to be national managers are porin' over maps and largescale plans of operation. Not much news about the inner working of political parties eve- reaches the public, yet these operr tions are vital. It is tedious, sustain ed, detailed organization effort whic' delivers the voters at the polls, and i is votes which win elections. Democrats Have Edge At this stage, the Democrats unquestionably have the edge so far as organization alone is concerned. They start with a hold-over national set-up which won n sweeping victory four years ago. They are in office, and have, the patronage which is so powerful an influence in political organization. They know, or at least thing they know, who their candidate will be. | However important they may be j otherwise, the defections from Mr Roosevelt have not cut appreciably into the official party inner circles . The national committee is dominated I completely by Roosevelt men. | One other circumstance seems svor- I fby of notice. Conciliation of the large city Democratic machines, which I were suspected of lukewarmness four I years ago, has been a prime objective | of Chairman Farley. No one seems to doubt that he has made much progress. An evidence appeared during the recent meeting of the national committee when Frank Hague, who controls the party in Now Jersey, offered the resolution warmly commending the Roosevelt administration. Four years ago, Hague was Al Smith's floor manager at the Chicago convention, and he openly declared candidate Roosevelt never could win the election and must not be nominated. The always unpredictable Tammany may be an exception, but by and large Farley seems to have done his organizing pretty thoroughly. G. O. P. Has Ample Fund The Republican picture is much more confused, thus far, but certain evidences of strength are apparent. It is clear that, up to the convention at least, the work of organization will be in the hands of old party wheel- horses, whose experience and political sagacity is discounted by no one. Chariot. C. Hilles. national committeeman for New York, is far more active than outward appearances in- dv-att in seekinp to reform the ranks which were so badly broken in 193?. He is a veteran of veterans, and will bear watching in any man's campaign. Another old-timer whose advice is valued highly around headquarters is Ralph Williams of Oregon, vice-chairman of the national committee. There h^is been some infiltration of new blood, but in the main the hurden of the job rests on the older shoulders. Chairman Fletcher, while not greatly experienced in po'. - .,ics, has taken his responsibilities very seriously. His unadvertised missionary work, directed toward a united front whoever is the candidate, has reached into every part of the country. Most notable of all, however, is the prospect that the Republicans will have an ample campaign fund, than which there is no more potent factor in effective political organization. Viewing the battle line from either side, it appears Mr. Farley was right when he predicted that the hand-to- hand fighting would be terrific, and without quarter. Bef ore Aft er Typical of the impoverished families of sharecroppers and tenant farmers in the 40.000 ;:quare miles of the TVA region is the Alabama family pictured above eating lunch of broad, water and meat in their drab hut after arduous toil in potato and cornfields. TVA hopes to improve their lot with rural electrification, cheap power, cheap fertilizer for exhausted acres, anti - soil - erosion programs, and new industries. At left is a typical two-room cabin housing five, though only 8 feet wide and 18 feet long. Below is shown the young mother of the top picture back at her primitive "bull tongue" plow, for man and beast—and woman— provide the only power here. In striking contrast to the dinpy cabins in the district, with their cliscuragcd, ill-fed, and illiterate occupants, is this bright scene in the living room of one of the government-built houses in the model town of Norris, near Morris dam. The miracle of electricity is visible in lights, iiu;.o, Ueating grills beneath the high windows. At the right, two of the houses are shown on the wooded hills near the damsitc.

This would cut casts nearly in half, with the resultant saving to the user if the service. In case of over-water flying, the hazard would be reduced in that the time spent away from land would' be cut in half. Wiley encountered regrettable and unnecessary difficulties through these significant months. i When he poised for h'm first attempt ' to fly from Burbank, Calif., to New i York last February, we all tluught 1 his equipment was in perfect concli- | lion, Ft.r months the country's finest t-n- ginec-rs and mechanics had groomed the ship, going over every nut. bolt and cotter key. Difficulties encountered prior to that j time had been of a minor nature. they were to be expected in any such research work, but they had been overcome. Test flights had proved to he' satisfaction of every one that the Winnie Mae was ready and, under ordinary circumstances, would carry ler master to New York in eight hours or less. But the next difficulty was not surrounded by ordinary circumstance. Less than an hour after his takeoff, after dropping his landing gear and climbing rapidly to 40,000 feet, Wiley was down on Murdoc Lake, lucky to be alive. It was hard to believe anyone would stoop so low as to put emery in the ship's engine. Why it was clono remains a profound mystery. It f'-irced Wiley to an emergency landing of a fast plane without landing gear, with the windshield entirely covered with oil, obscuring vision, and with a ton of highly infiamable gasoline around his neck. That was no sport and mining anyone with a love of life would enjoy experiencing. Other Efforts The forced landing {.purred Wiley on. When we had determined by microscopic analysis that emery had been placed in the engine, Wiley was more set than ever on continuing his experiments. His backer, Phillips, promised to stay with him as long as Wiley eared to continue, and in less than six weeks he was ready again.

It was .some time before Wiley determined to try again. The constant labeling of his flights as "failures" brought discouragement. However, he did try again, on April 15, and this time the much depaired external supercharger went to pieces somewhere over Ohio and Wiley again was forced clown, this time at Lafayette, Ind, Still, he hud averaged more than 300 miles an hour. Fet-'liiig the trip simply had to be completed, Wiley took off again on June 13, after much reconditioning work on the aged Winnie Mae. His ship this time developed a bad oil leak while he was over the Mississippi Valley. Wiley throttled back his motor and returned to Wichita, Ka.s., : where hi; knew the weather was clear. 1 By this time the Winnie Mae was in bad shape. She had undergone four i .skid landings and, engine and all, had i taken .severe beating she never was ! intcrded to survive. Phillips was willing to continue and offered unlimited I backing, but Wiley declined to go i ahead with the Winnie Mao.
