Thai's iiitchin' ball. The fiiime wn.i a thriller and the outcome was in doubt until the final l>criod. Hope opened the scoring in the first few minutes of play, Taylor ~ and Ellen tearing through the line and around the ends on a 51-yard sustained march. Jonesboro ci.'me right back to tie the score, then HOIK.- went ahead by scoring its second touchdown and making extra, point to lead at the end of the first quarter, 13 to C. The Hurricane team put over n touchdown in the second quartet' «ncl the half ended, 13 to 12. Each team scored in the third quarter, Hope niak- ,1, ing its touchdown to get an advantage by a score of 19 to 12. Before the period ended Jonesboro had scored again, making it Hope 19, Jonesboro 18. There wa.s a big sigh of relief when Roy Taylor broke through to block Daughtcry's attempted kick for extra point. Had the kick been good it would have tied the ball game. That's how close it was fought for three quarters. Going into the final period it was Hope 19, Jonesboro 18. The Bobcats f began applying the pressure after getting possession on an exchange of punts, Taylor and Daniels alternating on a hard-running attack to move the ball down the field where Taylor plunged over to score. Hope's final touchdown came about five minutes before the whistle ended the game. Ellen brought back a Jonesboro punt to the Hurricane '10 where Taylor ripped off \2 around end, then seven through the line. The Bobcats then .showed a bit of ** ra/7.1c-dazzlc when Taylor passed to Uaniel.s who laleralcd to Norman Green for touchdown. Daniels plunged over for the extra point. The Jonesboco line, out-weighed some 20 pounds to the 'man, charged fast and hard and .were through to stop Bobcat ball carriers on numerous occasions. Mabrey at center, Balleu, Harris and Ford who alternated at tackles turned in good defensive performances. Daugherty, McCall, and M Durham were the threats in the back' field—with Daugbtc'i-y and McCall doing most of the passing and Durham bearing the brunt of the running attack. Bill Tom Bundy, Hope's center wa.s forced out of the game by a bad gash,above the eye—which was a break for Jonesboro. William Taylor was sent in, but near the end of the game found Bobby Ellen playing that position. The First Quarter % Hope received, a weak kick giving the Bobcats the ball on their 48. Taylor went off tackle for six, made four more, but the Bobcats were set back five on a penalty. Taylor got loose for .si/me 20 yards to place the ball on Jonesboro 20. Taylor went around right end for 11. Baker made two over tackle. Taylor plunged for six yards, being stopped on the one-yard line. He hit the line again but failed. On the next attempt Taylor shot over tackle for the touchdown—a 52 yard • inarch with apparent ease. Daniels' kick was no good. Jonesboro received, Daughtcry racing up the field to his 35. Durham four over tackle. McCall picked up a yard and Hope was penalized five, giving Jonesboro a first down on the 45. McCall got loose on an end run but was finally brought down by Ellen on Hope 20. Lateral passes moved the ball to the 12 where more ruzzlc- da/^lc took the bull over, McCall making the touchdown. A pass for extra point failed and the score stood 6-6. Hope received, Daniels returning to his 35. Taylor .swung around end Cast of Characters: a Sheep, a Goose BELLINGHAM, Wash. — (/!') - A sheep's "mother complex" has resulted in an unusual animal friendship on a farm near here. The sheep is mothering a four-year- old goose. The sheep and goose have been inseparable companions since the .sheep's lamb died. On land, the .sheep never leaves the goose's side. When the fowl enters the water, the shop watches it anxiously from the shore. Recently the goose was set on some hen eggs. The sheep, forsaking all food, remained vigilant beside the nest until the goose, apparently afraid the sheep would starve, refused to remain on the eggs. Hot Springs Holds Little Rock to 2-0 El Dorado Wildcats Defeat North Little Rock by 13 to 6 LITTLE ROCK — Minus Howard Hughes, the Little Rock Tigers were just another high school foothnll tciini its a break in the third quarter enabled them to gain a safety ami eke out a 2-to-O victory over a surprising and hard-fighting Hot Springs ele. ven in the Little Roek stadium Friday night. A crwocl estimated at 7,000 attended. Other thiin the safety (here was little to chose between the two teams although! Little Rock had a slight statistical edge. For several mimics in the third period it seemed that the Trojans would score a touchdown but a poor pass from center spiked a grand opportunity. While the game WHS haro\ fought,' neither team showed anything in the way of a sustained attack to rave about It WHS a costly Hot Springs fumble that finally enabled the Tigers to reach pay dirt, such as it was. On the other hand, (he near-tic struggle was interpolated with dasheti by Chuck Steed of Little Rock, plunges by Jay Rowland of Hot Springs and off-tackle slants by Elliott of Hot Springs. Kl Dorado Beats N. I.. R. EL DORADO - The El Dorado High School Wildcats, rated as one of the leading teams in the Arkansas Conference, capitalized on scoring opportunities in the- third and fourth quarters to defeat the North Little Hock Wildcas, 13 to 6, at Rowland field Friday night. Kl Dorado's second touchdown at (lie opening of the final period proved to bo the margin of victory as the North Siders also got a break and turned it into a score late in the fourth quarter. Coach Alien Berry's eleven got its first six-pointer late in the third quarter when J. D. Rayhurn recovered a fumble on the eight-yard line when Duckworth attempted to pick up Forsyth's punt to return it out of (he clangor zone. From there, Blackwell us neat a high school passer as Ihi.s section lins seen since the days of Schoolboy Rowe, went over for the score but he had to make four yards on fourth down. Reecc's plave-kick WHS blocked. A few minutes later an intercepted pass wa.s turned into Die second touch down by El Dorado. White pulled clown Duckworth's long aerial on his 43 and then lateralled to Blackwoll, who went to the visitors' 32. Another pass from Blackwcll to White followed by five line plays, manufactured the score.

Charles A. Lisdbcrgh called Friday night for maintancc of un embargo on 'offensive weapons" and virually demanded that Great Britain and other European powers get out of this hemisphere lest they drag the United Stales into war. "We desire the utmost friendship with the people of Canada," Lindbergh asserted in a radio address. "If their country is ever attacked, our navy will be defending their seas, our soldiers will fight on their battlefields, our fliers will die in their skies. "But have they the right to draw this hemisphere into a European war simply because they perfcr the crown of England to American independence? "Sooner or later we must demand the freedom of this continent and its .suroundini; islands from the dictates of European powers. American history clearly indicates this need. As long as European powers maintain their influence in our hemisphere, we arc likely to find ourselves involved in their troubles. And they will lose no opportunity to involve us." ; -,' "'Embargo 'Offensive* Weapon* Lindbergh's stand on whether this country should refuse to sell arms to warring nations was similiar to : one recently taken'by Herbert Hoover. The flier .advocated; An embargo on offensive weapons and munitions. Unrestricted sale of purely defensive armancnts. Prohibition of American shipping from belligerent zones. Refusal of credit to belligerent nations or (heir agents. Repealing the present embargo on arms. Lindbergh said, would not assist democracy in Europe "because I do not believe this is a war for democracy." "This i.s a war over the balance of power in Europe—a war brought about by the desire for strength on the part of Germany and the fear of strength on l)]e part of England and France. The more munitions- the armies obtain the longer the war goes on, and the more dcvasted Europe becomes, the less Jioise there i.s- for democracy." Attributes War to Past Policies If England and France had offered a hand to Germany when that country was democartic, he said, "there would be no war today." "It i.s impossible for me to understand how America can contribute to civilization and humanity by sending offensive instruments of destruction to European battlefields," the aviator asserted.

Hope Star presents toilay the second of three exclusive dispatches in which Thomas M. v Jchnsnii, nctcil military writer, reveals how Germany's demonstration of mechanized warfare has altered America's own defense program.

Then knife them ahead—not in slogging attacks where the enemy is strong but in rapier-liko thrusts where he is weak . . . turning flanks, cutting roads clashing into rear positions. And so, advancing 175 miles a day, the German tanks did in three weeks what the British and French thought would take four months. That is the lesson learned by the U. S.

Meaning that Germany has, in these divisions alone, at least 4000 armed and armored vehicles. And what have we? One mechanized cavalry brigarc, willi KiO tanks and fully armored cars.

However, the Rcdbugs have one (Continued on Page Four) thing to be pround of and that is that they were the first team o cross the Zebra line. Midway of the first quarter the Zebras score! their first touchdown when Leftwich took the ball over. Their first score came in the first minute when they blocked a Fordyce punt and the bull bounded across the end /one for a safety and two points. In the same quarter the Zebras took the ball to the 18-yard line where Hart fumbled and then picked up the ball and, reversing the field, ran fro another touchdown. He kicked goal and the quarter ended, 1G to 0.

The Techmen were most effective skirting the ends and snaring long passes, but they displayed some vicious power plays that knifed the- strong Henderson line for telling gains. In the star column for Tech were Morelnck at end, Bynum at tackle, Sattcrfield at center, Taylor at guard, and Beeson. Fowler, Miller. Hamilton and Kecton, backs. Morelock's end- around plays were artistic. The Henderson team appeared stunned ')>y the events of the first quarter and found it impossible to rally its defenses, especially against passes. In the third quarter the Rcddic rallied briefly to carry the ball deep into Tech territory but thci theat was ended by a pass inteceplion. Davis blocking and Aubrey's and Parker's ball carrying featured Henderson's offense. Macicjt-wski at guard and Moore at tackle were Henderson line stars.

Representatives attended from the six counties that compose this district. Mrs. Fred Gantt, director of District 13 presided. Interesting reports from the various Councils were made. Budgets ranged from $150 to 5300 for the school year, and apparently the money was raised without much difficultly. Blevins Council reported 40 per cent of their membership were fathers. "Education for Self-Realization" was Miss Pearl Williamson's subject. She said in part: "Self-Realization is developing all of which one is capable physically, socially, and mentally. An educated person is one who has an appetite for learning all through life." I "Education for Human Relations," i was Mrs. Curtis Stout's subject. Among the many fine things brought out by Mrs. Stuart were: "Human relations starts when the child first comes into the home. If the boy or girl has properly been taught to live with his family, he will have no trouble when he goes to college. Taught to live in harmony a home, nursery school, public school, high school. No child can be well established who comes from a broken home. A child loves mother and father alike." Then Mrs. Stout told of a conference she had in Little Rock with "the greatest person that has ever walked the earth since the days of our Master, Helen Keller." The message Helen Keller sent to the people of Arkansas by Mrs. Stout is: Tell them the greatest thing they can do for democracy is to teach their little children the love of God." Lunchcn was served at the Norman Hotel. The tables were beautifully decorated with autumn leaves, berries and wild coreopsis. Mrs. Hcndrix of DeQueen was teist mistress. Several members of the De Queen school band favored the guests with instrumental solo, duet, and quartette. The first talk of the afternoon session was by Miss Beryl Henry. She spoke on 'Education for Economic Efficiency." Miss Henry said in part: •The school really started from the church. Boys and girls were taught Preachers wore teachers, and teachers were preachers. Teaching the soul was their object. 'Man requires 3 things," continued Miss Henry.

A' 1 German' submarine was blamedior tha sinking. The admirality announcement said lists of survivors would be issued as rapidly as possible but, beyond this,gave no hint as to how heavy the casualty toll might have aboard the 29,150-ton dreadnaught, veteran of the I World War and of the battle of Jut-" I land. According to "Jane's Fighting Ships," compendium on the world's warcraft, the Royal Oak mounted eight 15-inch guns and 12 six-inch guns, with four submerged torpedo-tubes.

French officers estimated that the total German strength on main fronts, upper Rhine and the Rhine-Moselle area at 2, 000,000. Senate in Session WASHINGTON —</P)- Administration leaders called the senate into an unusal Saturday session in an effort to master action of President Roosevelt's proposal to repeal the arms embargo. Senator George (D-Ga. proposed that belligerents purchasing arms in this country be required to make payments in cash, but be allowed six months to pay for other purchases.

The authoritative editor said nevertheless that the irreparable has not yet oc- curcd." Sweden Calls Conference STOCKHOLM, Sweden-(<P)—Sweden Friday called the kings of Denmark and Norway and the president of Finland to confer here next Wednesday on their status in the European war and ordered strengthening of Uie Swedish-Finnish border, long a friendly frontier similar to that of Canada and the United States. About 10,000 additional men were sent to the upper Norland border sector, in preparation for any eventuality between Finland and Russia. The troop movement followed the conference invitation by Sweden's venerable King Gustaf. The corn- 'mxmique announced acceptances by King Christian of Denmark, King Hnakon of Norway and President Kallio of Finland said they would be accompanied by their foreign ministers. A Finnish delegation is in Moscow for conversations at the Kremlin with Soviet leaders. Because King Gustaf had been suggested as a possible mediator of European peace, there lias been speculation over the likelihood of a general peace move by t)ic Northern countries. However, a meeting ,of the three Northern kings in December. 1914, developed no such move. The situation today is far different than in 1914. Finland then belonged to the Russian empire, with the status of an autonomous grand duchy. In post-war years, after Finland won her independence, she has drawn closer to her 'Scandinavian neighbors. She is regarded as one of the "Northern coun- (Continued oa Page JJuree)
