PAGE F*OtJR HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Thursday, September 28,1939 Educational Post at Baptist Church Anclerine Farmer Walhalla, S. C., Becomes Secretary in Hope Expanding its program of service First Baptist church has called Miss Andrine Farmer of Walhalla. S. C. to fill the newly-created position of educa tibnal secretary. Miss Farmer will lake up her duties October 1. For several years many members of • First Baptist church have felt that the character of its educational work would be improved by the employ- Miss Andcrine Farmer ment of an Educational Director to assist the pastor. Finanially unable to expand to this extent, the church a few month ago voted to employ someone who could in addition to office duties assist in the educatinal •work. After two months of investigation a committee appointed by the deacons had Miss Anderine Farmer make a week-end visit with the Hope church Her winsome personality, her evident consecration, and her special training led the church to- feel that she was eminently fitted for the position of Educational Secretary to which she was elected. Miss Farmer was a 1938 graduate of Limestone college, a senior Baptist college in South Caroliana. She received her B. A. degree, majoring in Religious Education. While attending college she was president of the college Y. W. A. and the Baptist Student Union on the campus. She was engaged in field work under the State Baptist Board of South Carolina. Since college graduation she has taught in the public schools of Belton, South Carolina, and is resigning that work to take the position in Hope effective October first.

With four games remaining to be played by each team, including the final of their present "crucial" series Thursday, the Rhinelanders lead by two and one-half games. They still have a chance to clinch the pennant Thursday but their failure to hit in their last two games has thrown this town in tailspin. To make matters darker, the man the Cards licked Wednesday was Buck Walters, who had won 27 victories, including his last six a row. The Gas Hhousers made the most of their seven hit, one of which was Terry Moore's ICth home run of the season. More than 25,000 fans burned almost silently as McGee did his stuff. The young right-hander with the fast ball was in rare form. Two of the four widely scattered blows he pemitted were scratched though the infield. Walters getting one. Only once did the Reds threaten to score, in the third inning when an error by Stu Matin on a perfect double-play ballhelpe d the local fill the bags with two out.

Slaughter Silences Fans Slaughter provided the fielding gem in the ninth when, after McCormick had led off with a single and the crowd was yelling for a rally, he raced .to the right field bleachers to pull down Lombari drive. With that, the fans subsided. Manager Bill McKenchnie said he would pin his hopes on Paul Derringer, winner of 24 games.

Will Be a Long- One By MORGAN M. BEATTY AP Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON — There's a story going around in high diplomatic quarters in Washington that Prime Minis- tor Neville Chamberlain never consulted the British seadogs and generals before he made a treaty with the Poles to guanmic 'heir independence. The best military strategists of this fide of the water had been telling me for weeks that there was no practical way for western allies-to help' the weaker Polish defenders at the outset of a great war. Geography, military tactics, and all the imponderalles of modern warfare required time-consuming conferences and time - .consuming tactics, both on the battlefields and on the diplomatic front. While that time was ticking away, the independence of Poland ticked away with it—for the time being. Hitler Signs VVilli Stalin Here's how the military strategists discuss the puzzle: 1.

In announcing that a court attack on the Nyberg act is planned, Mr. Wharton praised members of the association for having paid the tax up to the present time despite their knowledge thatu.the law under which it is collected will not stand a court test. Conceding, that proceeds of the tax are used for worthy purposes, Mr. Wharton charged that nevetheless the high tax had been a geat handicap to members of the association. He .said that no effort will be made to secure a refund of the tax already paid. He declared that main objectives of the Nyberg act almost have been accomplished. He said that sufficient funds had been derived for the support of the state.,s tubercular campaign and for the University of Arkansas medical school. "The tax in Septembe, under the Nyberg act shold run between $65,000 and $75,000,'' Secretary Wharton said. "By October 1, the revenue should be sufficient to complete the building progra mo fthe white and Negro the tax on beer and liquor, the University of Arkansas Medical School should derive sufficient revenue. You men who have paid that tax have made that possible. He said, the Medical School will be "taken care of by' 'the original alcho] tax and would not suffer by invalidation of the Nyberg act. '"I don't know whether you'll ever be given credit by the public for holding off this suit," Mr. Wharton told the association members," bu at least you'll have the satisfaction | of knowing the good you've done." "We contend that the tax has been illegally collected. In the suit that we shall bring it is probable that we shall ask for an injunction restraining further collection of tha ttax, or. if collect ed, that it should be he-Id subject to disposition of the suit.' Declaring that 95 per cent of the beer sold in Arkansas is in case lots, Secretary Wharton presented data that showed gadual decline in sales. He said that 321,381 fewer cases of beer were sold in Arkansas during the first eight months of 1939 than during the srniliar period of 1938. He said the decline had been particularly sharp since the Nybefg act went into effect.

Everyone spoke except Julie, who stared at Carma, childishly rouhd- eyed. Carma jerked her head in the direction of her escort. "His name is Hodges—Elmer Hodges," she said thickly. That seemed to end the introduction and there was a courteous murmur in response. "How do you do, Mr. Hodges. Glad to know you, sir." The men did not offer to shake his hand. Carma stared stonily at Pete. Marian reached up and caught her hand. "Another lovely outfit, Carma," she said brightly. "You knock my eye out every time I see you." Dolly, who sensed the possibilities of the situation, helped her out. "Turn around and let me look at you, Carma," she begged. "It does me good just to look at you." "I—I suppose so." Julie's voice j perecl, "will you take Miss Forbes stumbled. Marian saw her swal- I home?" He had not risen. He looked up, Carma did not turn, she jerked her hand free. There was a glassiness about her. Marian had the feeling that she might fly into splinters. She kept staring at Pete, ignoring the others. "Well, aren't you going to Introduce me to your wife?" she asked in a loud, high-pitched voice. , "Of course—I beg your pardon. Julie"— the smile returned to his eyes as he looked at her—"I want you to meet Carma Forbes— you've heard me speak of her." Julie's smile was a bit forced. The tension in the situation had conimuhicated Itself to her, "I am happy to know you, Miss F6rbes," she faltered. Unsteadily, Carma went around the table, touching the backs of chairs. Marian thought: Stop her —for .her own sake? stop her. And to her|elj she moaned: She doesn't know what she's doing. She might kill Julie or Pete!— Carma stood over Julie and the girl raised her eyes. Pete walked leisurely around the table watching ,,Carma's every move. Dan closfijj in from the other side. Mapiim made a hurried survey of the adjoining tables. There were no staring eyes. So far the meeting had not been conspicuous. Mr. Elmer Hodges had joined a noisy table. Randy $tood between Dolly and Carma; he held Dolly's hand. * * * PARMA said casually, but with ^ an undertone ot malicious in» "So you've joined the ranks of Pete'? women." ow with a little ducking oi' her head. She did not lower her eyes. "And. how long,do you think you'll last?" "Always, I hope," the girl answered bravely. Dan put in smoothly, "The waiter is ready to seat you, Carma. Shall we all get together after- ,vard?" Carma hissed, "Shut up—I'll be seated when I'm good and ready, and not before." To Julie she went on suavely, as if she were secretly laughing at her, "Do you know what Pete does to his women when he tires of -them? He kicks them out—just like that." Swinging her foot, she almost lost her balance. Pete took her 'firmly by the arm. "It doesn't pay to be nasty, Carma," he said, without a trace of anger. "You've had about three too many drinks. Go collect your boy friend and have dinner. That's what you need, dinner." He attempted to guide her away from the table. She turned upon him, unlovely splotches of rouge standing out on her ashen face. "Don't try to tell me what to do, Pete Thorpe. I'd like to kill you. No, killing is too good for you. I'd like to cripple you so that you could never move again, so that you would live on and on with your baby-faced Julie"— She was shrieking. There were staring eyes now. The head forward, between his "You poor fool—" I'm a fool." Her eyes herself home," he "I don't have a teeth. "So blazed, her mouth worked. "You didn't think so for 10 years. You didn't think so until that—" She threw out a hand toward Julie and Pete caught it. Carma wrenched herself free and stood back, panting. She spoke again, her voice low. It vibrated through the still room. "For all the women who have loved and trusted, for all the men who have been untrue—" She slapped Pete across the mouth For an instant the sharp slap hung in the silence, then Carma bursl into tears. Stormy, uncontrolled tears. The head waiter rushed up Marian said, "Never mind— we'll take care of her." She put an arm around Carma. Dolly encircled her from the other side Together, they led her from the room, weeping and babbling. * * * TN the foyer Marian said, "I'l •*• get Mr. Hodges. He must take her home." As she ran back to the dining room, Carma threw herself into a chair. Dolly bent over her. "Mr. Hodges," Marian whis- stupid and blinking. "Let Mis-Forbes take said loudly, fancy for wildcats." "But she isn't fit to drive." "That's her problem." Hi? friends laughed uproariously and Marian went to Dun. Pete w;is sitting beside Julie, holding her hand. She wns crying. "Someone must take her home," she snid worriedly. "She isn't herself. We're her friends—we've got to help her." Randy offered quickly, "I'll take her home, Dolly and I will look after her. We'll be back for coi'- fce." He strode out of the dining room. Marian sat down limply. "It's til my fault, Pete. Like a brain- ess idiot I told her that you were joing to be here tonight. I .should mve known better—I'm sorry." He smiled. There was a reel streak across his mouth. "It's till right, Marian. If she felt that way it had to come sooner or ater, Just as well to have it over with." 'But to humiliate herself and you publicly. She'll hate it so Lomorrow." Tears tilled Marian's eyes. Julie wiped her eyes; she was very sober. "She must have loved you a lot, Pete—you must have hurt her terribly." He bent toward her, love and pity in his eyes. "I told you the truth about Cnrma, dear, all the truth." Swiftly, her hand slid into his, know, darling. I guess she didn't realize until it was too late." She buried her face in his shoulder; "I w-want to go home." * * * T HEY met Dolly and Randy at the door. "She's gone," Dolly said, her blue eyes alarmed. "She said she'd left- something in the ladies' lounge. She went to get it and we waited. When she didn't come back I went to find her and she'd gone—there's a street entrance to the lounge—" They stared at one another aghast. Marian said again, "She isn't fit to drive." And Randy, "I sent for my car •—it's right here—let's follow along." They got in Randy's car and Pete directed them to the apartment building where Carma lived. They drove slowly, watching for Carma's coupe. Nearing the building, Pete said, "Her apartment is dark." Dan went in and rang the bell. There was no answer. He hurried around to the line of garages. Carma's car was not there. (To Be Continued) begins to fly arid choke up strategic pnsses. They nppnrently decided it was not sensible. More time was consumed. 4. That left the western "front, for the time being, ns the only means of aid, pending the outcome of a long- drnwn-out blockade of Germany. How about a sudden nttack on the West w«nr The trouble is nobody knows the value of on air fleet in such attacks. How important, or unimportant, are airplanes? It may well be that the plnne is not the all-powerful decisive force its ndvocntes claim it 1$, but it also may well be that the plane is the margin of victory for one side or the other. It could go a long way, if concentrated, to blast «n impassable barrier of death between the enemy's supply and reinforcements, and isolate the Siegfried line.

At the start, they decided against it. It takes time to make a decision about aerial warfare. 5. Britain is the most vulnerable nation in the world from the air. Planes flying over the North sea are not sighted mile by mile as (hey wing their way toward London's sleeping millions, as they are in France. If the Franco-British command opened •nerinl warfare against the Germans, they could expect disastrous reprisals. Every one of these points was a barrier to instant action by the Allic.s. but instant action only could help the Poles. So Poland went by the board —until the war takes another turn. The Allies, remembering 1918. decided that blitzkrieg ((lightning war), is not the only kind, of war that can be fought. IN NEW YORK By GEORGE KOSS NEW YORK — Variety, the bible of Broadway, has relented in its' as- English language and back to the dictionary. The German army apparently refused to move for Hitler unless he took ites advice to make Jiis peace with htc | Russians and complete this circle of neutrality. If the French and British were to aid Poland at once, then they had to decide between (A) an attack on the West .Wall or (B) violating the neutrality of some European state whose territory would permit a sound military flanking movement gainst the German army, and draw its best divisions away from Poland. The West Wall was too tough for a quick victory, obviously. Violating the neutrality of a neutral state, such as Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, or Rumania, to get to the Poles was the kind of strategy that brought the wrath of world opinion down upon the Kaiser at the beginning of the last World war. So, in the end, the Franco-Briti- ish alliance rejected both of those methods of offering immediate aid to poland. 2. As long as Hitler's ally, Mus- Holini. should keep Italy neutral, the British dare not send their main fleet into the Mecliteranean and maintain a .supply line thousands of miles long to the back door of Poland Rumania, At any moment, the canny Mussolini could abandon his neutrality, and bottle up the British with his swell submarine fleets. Therefore, Italy must ho dealt with, peacefully, or otherwise. It takes time to do that. 3. If Mussolini couldn't be bought off, then he might be intimidated by arm cd might, but the British and French commands must first get together and decide whether it is sensible to make an attack through the Italian Alps in September, just before, the snow Rescue of Torpedoed Freighter Crew Pointing camera over sirln of U.

Few folk, for example, who stood on the purleius of the show world were able to decipher Variety's-cry- togram. "B. O. Off" and decode it to mean that business had been terrible at that movie theater on the Rialto. And Variety had( and still has) other quaint phrases for vital information. A showman "taking a bath" meant that showman had been plunge'd into bankruptcy and a "straw hat" was a summer theater,. while a "wodunit" came to mean any mystery story. Variety's masterpiece, of course, was a front page banner succinctly saying, " STIX NIX HIX FIX" which, when translated into average speech, was translated to .mean that all towns ( west of New York had rejected pic- Bali Trip Halted by War Outbreak Sad Case of a Bachelor Who Failed to Get Fine Excursion Ily PIIESTON GROVEU WASHINGTON—One tragedy of the war was vi.lited upon a young fellow named Colton. Colton is a bachelor writer for the National Geographic. Remember that he is a bachelor. Two 'months ago lie was assigned as the writer member of a scientific group going into the South .sens to study flora and fauna. O'f all fine places in the world, their center of operation was to be Bali. The expedition was fully organized. A U. S. coast guard cutter had been assigned from the Pacific side to take the party out and attend to its wants. Then came the war. Just two days before Colton and the party were to leave Washington, the coast guard cutter was ordered to the Atlantic to prevent German submarines from annoying flora and fauna along our east coast. The expedition folded at once. Colton will remain in Washington. War Note: Applications for commissions in the army and navy officers' reserve corps have increased steadily. The navy would like to get a bigger reserve of naval architects but instead gets a flock of applications from lawyers wanting to join the non-combatant Judge Advocate General's division.

Stealing the Immortals Blind Grand'Larceny has become legalized in Tin' Pan Alley Time was when a composer, having pilfered a popular tune from the masters, would deny vehemently that he had raided the immortals and plead innocent to the charge. While Beethoven, Wagner, Tschaikovsky, et al. rolled like whirling dervishes in their ci;vpts, Tin Pan Alley blandly lifted their stuff. Then a few months ago came the twinge of consicence. The boys decided to confess everything. Larry Clinton raided Claude Debussy's dossier and extracted a lovely tune called "Reverie" and came right out with it.

Farewell to Trolleys and Sleep Father Knickerbocker has gone a step further and has announced the banishment of ail trolley cars, where they have not yet been exiled, in Manhattan. They arc to be replaced by quiet, non-rattling busses. To many this civic stop was a blessing and a sign of further progress in the great metropolis. To others—including me—ihe disappearance of the trolley is impaling. For years, sleep has come easily the third trolley car has hurtled down the street, an iron fortress -of clashing metal, making a din that would wake up the folk in the cemctry. It takes years and training to adjust oneself to the noise of a trolley car and once attuned to its noisy rhythm. The quietude of a shockproof rubber shed bus will he an infernal irritation.
