."' t HOPE STAR, HOPE, AftKANSA? Here's the Story of a Real Cowgirl Alice Greenough, Red Lodge, Mont.? Is a Champion Rider By ROBEKT BEIGER, AP Feature Service Writer Youthful Alice Greenough o£ Red Lodge, Mont., is one of the world's greatest women bronc riders. She has appeared in rodeos throughout the world; was international champion at Sidney, Australia, in 1935 and won the Boston championship, prized title of the rodeo world, in 1933, '35 and '36. She has been riding broncs 10 years; before that she was a relay rider. Her father homesteaded in Montana in 1886 and raised a fa'mily of eight, five of them topnotch rodeo performers. Alice attended Billings. Mont., high school and then carried a mail route, riding horseback 35 miles a day, summer and winter. 'She "worked" bull rings in Mexico, riding the fighting bulls 'into the arena. She did such a spectacular job of it they heard about it in Spain, so she "worked" the bull rings there, too. before the civil war. "A cowgirl has to be able to get out there and ride just as tough a bronc as the cowboys. Otherwise the rodeo customers think the management is just trying to give her a break because she's a girl. "I think rodeo is the greatest game | in the world with more excitement in | it than any other sport. ! "A girl can make a good living at it | but she has to be willing to take the bumps, too. And she has to be raised .in the saddle. "You cai\ train a girl to do trick riding and racing but a cowgirl has to grow up in the cow country to learn the disposition of ornery broncs and critters to be any good in the rodeo- arena.

By NEA Service WASHINGTON—The first few weeks of the war abroad proved the submarine the most potent weapon in naval operations. Because of its comparative small size, it is easily manageable; because of its destructive torpedoes, it can sink a large vessel before the vicliTriized captain is aware of an enemy craft in the vicinity. A submarine moves slowly—15 to 23 miles an hour on the surface, one to 10 miles submerged. Its value lies in its ability to maneuver and remain hidden until its pray is in striking distance. Raising and lowering the periscope, the sub "bobs" for its viclim, unlil the torpedo is driven home. The U-boat is propelled by two powerful Diesel engines, which also generate electricily for storage batteries to run electric motors for underwater travel. Most underwater craft can remain beneath the surface 18 hours without drawing on reserve oxygen. Normally, they seld&'m 1 stay down longer than two or three hours at a stretch. In the more recent types, reserve oxygen will keep the crew alive up to 65 hours. Submarines are built from 250 tons to 2500 tons, costing from about $2,000 000 to $6,000,000. Most popular sizes are 250. 500 and 750-ton boats. Can IJange Far From Base The 750-ton craft can cruise as fav as 3750 miles from its base of supply. The 500-ton submarine has a cruising radius of 2500 miles and the small boat is used only for coastal operations. Most of Germany's success is altrib- *^;*cr» Diagram of a torpedo. This model operates from compressed air, which powers the turbine. uted to 500-ton ancl 750-ton crafl, although larger models arc in service. The United Stales navy buill a few underwater boats of 2300 tons: but navy experts said the best type is between 1300 and 1500 tons. A 750-ton craft is about 230 feet long. It is 13 feel wide and 20 feet high. The is about 200 feet long, and 20 feet high; ancl the coastal boat, about 130 feet in. length. 12 feet in width and 13 feet in' haight. Most of the ship is filled with engines, torpedo tubes, instruments, safety devices and oxygen ancl water ballast tanks. The crews of 25 to'50 men live where Ihey can be crowded in. Usually five or six officers are aboard. The men sleep in shifls in bunks in the maze of valves and levers. They eat where Ihey can find a place. A submarine commander usually has a good idea where he will find prey through a r ;o-ordinaled system of wireless reports, aerial reconnaissance ancl u=e of sound detectors. In some submarines there are as many as three periscopes to enable officers to watch more than one ship. Periscopes Give Good Visibility ' With the periscope four feet above the water the commander can sight a .'hip 1.3 Vn'ilcs away. If the ship has a 100 foot mast, it can be sighted as far as 13.8 miles away. This range increases as the periscope is raised. If the periscope is 15 feel above Ih the range i.s more than 15 mles.

The torpedo is propelled through the water by a turbine and has a rudder which will guide it in an arc of at least 90 degrees. Thus, a torpedo may be fired from a submarine lying parallel to its victim. Torpedoes usually are loaded svith T. N. T. or cordite, set lo explode after Three years ago I flew from London to Paris. My husband and 1 were amused at the gravity with which officials weighed us. took our height and measure, the names of those to be notified in case of accident. To us it was just a lark. We ate lunch, ancl a good one. aboard the plane as we l"ew over the Channel. Then we were there at Le Gourget field just like that. As we landed near Paris, I was instantly impressed wtih signs at the airport, giving schedules to Berlin, to Rome, Moscow and Stamboul. Europe, jou see. and the cities of importance are as close to each other as New York and Washington ancl Pittsburgh, for instance; or St. Louis and New Orleans. Flying has taught me there is no such thing as distance. Now I am going far in another way. I wiih to show bow children here differ friAn 1 the children abroad n their attitude to war. That fateful Saturday when the world was watching ancl Britain was silent for so many hours, waiting the the torpedo has drilled a hole into'the boat, not on first contact. Torpedoes can travel five or six miles. The 750-ton submarine • mounts six 21-inch torpedo tubes, four in the nose and two in the tail.

That same Saturday, all London and Paris were being emptied of children, a million or two boys and girls. Your radio told you about that. There was no fanfare among children ovvs 1 there, although they took their "excursion" to -secret destinations in the holiday spirit. But they knew, ns most children do, what it implied. The^ did not know when they would be "home" or see their parents. There were no drums. Just a long quiet ride to the country where they are to live In foster, homes or dormitories and go to improvised .schools, out of harm's way. It i.s hard for us over here, to make our children understand that we must thank God on our knees for the oceans that surround us. That, of course, docs not mean everlasting immunity. My point is this: war today should ' mil mean a celebration among our j children. They should be taught that i war is not a circus. It i.s more serious i and deadly than it ever w;us. And it was always a .sordid, ugly thing. j I condemn with all my soul any dra- 'iii'atic exhibition here when others arc away in the thick of battle; the macabre dance at the big funeral. Try, if possible, to impress upon children the real reasons for war, ancl the principals for which a war is usually waged. I think most of them will understand better than we guess. Early impressions of war are lasting and will color the future of a people. Bruce Catton Says: Special Session of Congress May Put Clamp On Wai- time Profiteering in United,States By BKUCE CATTON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — Although President Roosevelt suggested Unit this session of Congress need not bother about nnything beidcs neutrality legislation, there Is a good chance that it will turn serious attention to the proposition that war and profits ought to be divorced. Pending on the callendar as carry-® • overs from the last session are two — session are bills designed to achieve that end— the famous war-tnxation bill, introduced by Senator Bone of Washington ancl sponsored by '19 other sena T tors, and a war finance bill brought in by Senator Lee of Oklahoma. Senator Lee says flatly tluit he proposes to bring these two bills to the Senate's attention before the neu- trlity bill is passed, with the idea that the neutrality issue can be handled most intelligently it Congress first makes it clear to all parties that war would not menu profit to any American. Wants Profit Motive Ue- JVtoved "We're not in a fair position to deal with this question (neutrality) until we remove the motive of self interest," says Senator Lee. "With these two bills enacted, that would be notice to the United States that we'd have no opportunity to profiteer in time of war. Then, I think, we could approach Jhe question of neutrality without the profit motive entering our consideration." Senator Lee supports President Hoose veil's plan for removing the arms embargo; but he says he is getting entirely too many letters from people who want the embargo removed on the ground that the resulting trade will be good fo business. The Bone bill is a drastic measure which would apply steeply gradual- id income taxes in time of war. 'Inese would start at three per ccnl on $2000 of net income and would run P to 98.9 per cent on $10.000,000 incomes. It is based pretty largely on the revelations the famous Senate years ago about World War profits. Senator Nye, who had n hand in putting it to- gclhe. admits that it is an extremely drastic bill and says grimly, "We intended it lo be." n effect, its ai mwould be confiscate all war profits. Senator Lee's bill, commonly called the "draft capital bill," would pick up any loose change that the Bone bill chanced lo miss. In its essentials, it would do these things: Bond Uiiying Control Every tilr.cn would fill out a schedule showing how much wealth he possessed. When the government then began issuing bonds to finance Its war activities, it would determine from these schedules exactly how many bonds each indivdual should buy— and each individual would buy that amount, with no ifs.ands or but abou it. The bonds would not be tax-exempt, and would pay 1 per cent interest. Senator Lee remarks that the Bone bill would take -the profits made in war time by commerce and industry, and thai his bill would taki the profits formerly made by fin- nncers. While Senator Lee prepares lo bring both measures to the Senate's at- tenlion, the Senate isolationists whc are fighting the President's neutrality program are reseving their fire—will: Ihe Bone bill held in eservo. If it develops thai Ihe neutrality revision urged by the President is sure to pass, or if it actually does pass, then the plan now is to push for passage of the Bone bill—on the theory that, if selling munitions to France and England should make American entrance into the war more likely, this measure would make war so obviously unprofitable thata the clanger would decrease. Just incidentally, it might be remembered thai the Bone bill was formally sponsored by 50 senators a clear majority—so that unless s have changed their mini _ __ March, it would be practically certain to pass. It also has strong support in the House. During June, 1939, 1G4.57S revenue passangors were flown by the 171 scheduled airlines in Ihe United States. This is an increase of 64.25 per cent over June, 1938. DeanHorlacherto Visit Hope Friday Will Appear On Program at Experiment Station Farm Dean W. R.

Red Cross Answers Plea To Relieve War Suffering ' HPHE firing of the first gun on A the German-Polish war front , was the signal for the International Red Cross to go into action. Already the American Red Cross- has answered Poland's appeal for help with a $50,000 shipment of hospital tents, drugs and blankets. Devoted to a single cause—"to press forward, in a human ~*»»d truly civilized spirit, the attempt to prevent, or at least alle\iate, the horrors of war"—this vast organization of 20 million members works on both sides of the battle lines, in prison camps and refugee centers. Sixty-two nations have signed the treaty which guarantees protection of Red Cross workers. Other international pacts are scrapped and forgotten, but this one remains inviolate. Swift, world-wide condemnation follows any real or alleged violation. The Red Cross was organized 75 years ago by a Swiss, Henri Dunant, and its development was rapidly advanced through the efforts of Florence Nightingale, a British nurse, and an American, Clara Barton, the Civil War's "Angel of the Battlefields."
