Jf Complete With Tubes BRIANT'S Drug Store SPECIAL CLEARANCE SALE OF OUR prince himself had said "Ileana's o pretty kid, but I am still going on being a bachelor." Romances With English Girls Also Fade Out More highly regarded in court circles were the repeated rumors of the prince's engagement to English girls of noble blood. Lady Rachel Caven- :lish, Lady May Cambridge. Lady Ann Welleslcy. Lady Eileen Butler, Lady Furness, and the Countess Carrick were among those mentioned in recurrent rumors. While the prince was on a hunting trip to Africa, Lady Ann fell ill, and daily reports from her bedside were radioed to him. That lent strength to this report, but as usual nothing came of it. Lady Ann has since married. There have been other London society women, of high position, but not of noble blood, with whom the prince has been friendly for many years, but none of these friendships has given rise to any serious talk of a royal marriage. The prince's free-and-easy manner of dancing with whomever seized his fancy when on pox-tics has again and again blossomed out in reams of newspaper stories, especially in America. At one time during 1926 he clnnccd frequently with Adele Astairc in London, and his dancing with Irma Cherry in Biarritz in 1931, with Carolyn Cranberry at Panama City In 1921, Eileen Stanley in New York the same year, and Joyce Lindsey in New York in 1924 all brought their share of open-mouthed comment from the press. Just Another Dance With Pretty Partner To few commentators did it occur that the prince was just like any other young man—he liked to dance with pretty girls, and did so on every convenient occasion. And that was really all there was to that. The prince has been especially fortunate, too. in his family associations, and his devotion to his sister Mary, the only girl in the royal family, and to .little Princess Elizabeth, daughter of his favorite brother, Prince George, is noteworthy. The answer, among those who know the prince well, is simply that he has been too busy to become interested in and court a bride. Having missed this experience due to preoccupation with the war during the years when he was most likely to be drawn to it, he launched into the period of post-war gaiety and latter-day serious-ness without even having had time for marriage. What seldom occurs to the sentimental is this—Edward may simply prefer the bachelor life, and the competence and completeness with which he has set up his bachelor quarters and rcginu- at St. James Palace and Fort Belvedere suggest that this may be true i Whatever the inner reason, the mure I fact that the prince has been able to i resist for so many years the family and political pressure put upon him to j marry speaks volumes for his strength j of will. In this, as well as in other ! matters, he has been increasingly "his own man" for the last five years.

How, in his war service, he came a lot nearer being killed than it is the fashion to think. 55 and SHOES On Sale Fri. &. Sat.

Midget Money Is Asked by Wiseman Would Solve Problem of Sales Tax Question, He Says WAsn.rNGTON--</p)-Th l ) "midget nonoy" plan probably will be before Congress ognln soon. State Revenue Commissioner Earl !. Wiseman of Arkansas, loader in a campaign to enlist support of the 28 jlales having sales taxes, said here Wednesday he would come back to Washintgon within H month to seek authorization for smaller than one- cent pieces. Wisemon has conferred with Treasury officials several times and has said the department appeared less opposed to midget money legislation this year than last when a bill providing such money was blocked in a house committee. "One and five-mill pieces would solve the problem of sales tax collections." said Wiseman. "They Would o be the means of saving the sales taxpayer some money, because he now pays as much as a 10 per cent, tax on small articles. "The revenue commissioners of practically all the sales tax states have informed me they will support the move before congress, and I expect some action this session." Plan Paved Roads for Mississippi Hugh White, New Governor, Promises Immediate Action JACKSON, Miss. — (ff>) — Promising paved roads, industrial expansion and governmental reforms, Hugh Lawson White, 58, millionaire South Mississippi lumberman, succeeded Martin Sennctt Conner as governor of Mississippi Tuesday. Mississippi's 45th governor pledged himself to four years of effort "lo balance agriculture with industry" in this predominantly Agrarian state, and to launch the state immediately upon a hard-surfaced road program. He said he would reveal from time to time details of his program for industrializing Mississippi, but of road building, he promised immediate action. "My sole desire is to see that we are gotten out of tho mud, dust and gravel as quickly as possible, consistent with sound business principles and the judicious expenditure of public funds," he said. An eight-month school term, free textbooks, a $1 automobile tag and economy in governmental spending were other objectives. The legislature has before it a road- paving bill proposing an expenditure of S-10,000,000, of which Public Works Administration is expected to provide $15,000.000. A House committee open hearing on the will hold an road measure Wednesday and hopes to firing the measure to the floor this week. Inauguration Brilliant Affair The inauguration was one of the most colorful in Mississippi's history. Thousands lined Jackson's Capitol street to watch a threu-mile-long parade, in which nearly a dozen bands, and approximately 2,000 state militiamen participated. Tho incoming and outgoing governor;;, wearing .silk hats, rode in open car. At the conclusion of the parade a multitude gathered upon the lawns of the capitul grounds to watch Governor White take tho oath of office administered h,y Chief Justice Smith. A 19-gun salute was fired, a band struck up "The Slnr-Spanglcd Banner," and White rend his message before the official sesion of (he legislature.

Roger's, state director for (he Ro»ettlemehl Adminisffa(iori predicted Thursday that repayment of loans made tb approximately 17,000 rural rehabilitation clients in Arfcan* sas during the 1935 program will 6X-< ceod all previous estimates, and "Will prove" beyond Question that the granting of supbfvlsed loan* to Worthy (arm families without other means of credit Is financially sound as \vell aS socially desirable." "Our clients have produced good crops this ye&f in most sections of the stale antl have stored enough food and feed to insure them an adequate supply during Ihewinter months," Rogers said. Practically all of the subsistence loans have been repaid as well as an» nuol installments 6n capital goods. Capital goods loans are .usually repaid in from two to five annual in^ stallments and are secured by the usual commercial lien on capital items such as livestock, tools etc. Subsis- 1 tenee loans are made for necessary food, clothing, school books, medical .services etc. While the Resettlement Administration removed farmers from the relief rolls and accepted theirt as clic'rifs, it is not a relief agency, Rogers explained. Loans made to rehabilitation and resettlement clients are carefully made and arc supervised by the RA until repaid. "The splendid collection record being made in Arkansas proved conclusively that al Hhe average rehabilitation family wants is an opportunity to work out his own salvation," said the director. Rogers said some 1935 loan collections arc still being made. He estimated that accurate figures will be available within two weeks. Mf. Pleasant The Mt.
