HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS e Boarder r Duration "47,000 New Government Workers in Washington fcy MCK STINNETT „. WASHINGTON — The capital in y Wartime: '£'.",They arc taking a page from the *fefe^8 convention cities here and ask- ^Jilfig that every house-owner with an '/ .extra room take a boarder "for the b filtration." f« lt*s- estimated that 47,000 new gov- u.i eminent workers have rolled into r, ^Washington in the last year. Figure £ FOut for yourself what that means to i C& city that already was population- before the big defense wave , ._ If you are down around the water" front these days and you are lucky, fer, you might catch a glimpse of one of $N the trimmest yachts afloat and a i?., graceful four-masted bark. It doesn't jr^mean, however, that the multi-mils'; lionaires arc visiting Washington. It's f- just that the U S. has come into '^ possession of two more luxury boats. ,;•' The yacht is the Nenemoosha, a T ( floating palace, which Mrs. Jessie Ball ,' ( DuPont has turned over to the Mari(* tune Commission. It will be converted sfiMnto a training ship for maritime calf' <fets. !f The clipper is one-time Ambassador ,*, to Russia Joseph E. Davies' "Sea »* Cloud." The navy has leased it for jtjp. a year for use in the coastal pa- ,!£,troL The "Sea Cloud" is known on j-H the seven seas as one of the most ^Tte&uUful crafts afloat. There is an •f ^ironic twist about the "Sea Cloud's" "-'going to war. Just ten years ago it * . Slipped down the ways at Kiel Gar(i '.elen, Germany. ',^'f Out of all the statistical sky-rocket- ^•t-ing in Washington in the last year, ,v ^the two smallest increases were not|J l " ed in bank loans and life insurance gj sales. As one wit put it, the first °' 'shows that nobody's poor, and the ^ second that nobody cares. £•" Treasury Secretary Morgenthau gave jr his press confeience an explanation the other day, and he also may have f given himself a nickname. For weeks, t the boys have been trying to get ^ something out of the secretary on the $ new tax program. When the old qucs- T tions started popping again, Mr. Mori{ ( genthau asked "How many of you pj iboys saw 'Dumbo'?" 4 f A number of the press corps signi- ^ fied that they had. "Then," said the '• secretary, "maybe you know -Dumbo f couldn't talk." E,' Undoubtedly what inspired Mr. Mor- j? genthau's comment was that he had J fust come from a session with Walt r/ Disney, who created "Dumbo." There L are several ace Hollywood directors f and producers in Washington these s'j days, so brace yourself for some I propaganda films from some of the jj best talent the movies have to of*/> fer. Just what Disney is doing at the ^Treasury is strictly hush-hush, but f -you can almost bet that it has to ,/ ^do with an animated movie on defense Y bonds and stamps. ^ * t The appearance of Prime Minister Wednesday, January 28, 1942 0 Getting the Bad News DUDLEY Flour & Feed Co.

The details are a closely guarded military secret and rightly so. The Senate office building has taken on a definitely wartime air. Signs in the halls point huge arrows to the "Air raid shelter area" and at several convenient places there are great boxes of sand with long-handled shovels and hoes for use against I incendiary bombs. The capital never has forgotten that it was burned out once in the War of 1812. You can't get a word out of the National Gallery (Mellon Museum) of Art, the Corcoran Gallery, 'the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian, or any other museums here about what precautions they have taken to guard their invaluable art treasures and relics, but even an occasional visitor 1 will notice that many of the most highly valued paintings, sculptures and historical exhibits have disap peared. • NOTICE • Erie Ross is now employed by Keith's Barber Shop New Location on E. 3rd Next to Checkered Cafe •f.

It is sincerely hoped that as many as posible will attend. News stories indicate fear of tropical diseases in the Pacific war. Worst of 'em seems to have been sleeping sickness. Everything's Free at Hobo Paradise EDWARDSVILLK, 111. —(IP)— This town is a mighty important spot on the map for gentlemen of the road. Hoboes no longer will have to ask for a handout in Edwardsville—coffee and food will be theirs for the taking. The community fund, police and fire departments and city officials have opened a free food center for hoboes, and beds are furnished at the police station for "guests" who wish to remain overnight. m i • There'll be less nickel in the new nickels, but that won't do any good if they still fit the juke-boxes.

Old Gray Mare Comes Back 'Where Can I Get a Horse' Is Familiar Cry AP Failure Service OMAHA—The Old Gray Marc she ain't what she used to be. She's on the way back to popularity and those city slickers who once jeeringly asked "Will the horse ever replace the automobile as an institution?" are now asking "Where can I get a horse?" The South Omaha auction rings are enjoying a priorities boom that is running a close second to the 1941 automobile ubll market. Dealers lire thronging the marts from as far away as New England and they're buying horses for transportation purposes as well as farm and work horses. Five hundred animals—350 horses and 150 mules—were knocked down in a one-clay sale recently that had the horse auctioneers going through their double-talk routine at a faster clip than nthe tobacco auctioneers. Unlike the tobacco sales, the modern David Harums get a chance to sec the horses perform before they put up their money. They arc hitched to a wagon and given trial runs with expert observers certifying on their tags whether the animals are O.K. or "work green," "little green," "windy," "little windy" or are "bad workers." The dealers are required to give an honest description of the animal's bad as well as good features and if he doesn't report all the blemishes, the buyer is entitled to: 1. "Bush" him a bit (force the price down). 2, Reject the horse entirely. It is then rcoffcred at the end of the sale with other rejects. Market experts do not anticipate a big demand for animals for city delivery purposes, to replace trucks and worn-out tires. The old tiine drays and delivery wagons aren't made any more, they point out, and a dray that once cost $300 might have to be custom built today at a prohibitive cost of about ?1,200. Red Man Goes Modern FORT LEWIS, Wash. —(XP)— Sioux Indian soldiers of Company B, 163rd Infantry of the 41st Division, got tired of many a back-breaking hour over a washtub. They needed something to take the place of squaw- work. So they purchased a washing machine with money they saved from rebates on canteen book purchases. Most of the raw material for syn thetic rubber will be supplied by the petroleum industry. . The principal Scottish local court ._ the Sheriff Court and the judge is called the Sheriff Substitute. TAMBAY GOLD By SAMUEL HOPKINS ADAMS Copyright, 1941. NEA Service Inc. DOC—FAIR-HAIRED BOY CHAPTER XXI JUDDY didn't take the trouble between Maurie and Bixie Groff as seriously as I did. Much goading like that might put Maurie on Doc after all, but Juddy only joshed Doc about it. "Why don't you borrow Dolf for a police dog?" she said. Doc didn't even answer her. He said, "Do you think I should apologize to Sears, Mom?" "What for?" I said. "You didn't do anything to him." "Are you afraid?" Juddy said. "Of course I'm afraid. I'm not a fool. I have no ambition to be shot." I guess Juddy had never heard that tone out of him before. She had it coming to her all right. She colored up, Angel showed up, looking like something the Salvation Army had salvaged. No, he wasn't looking for Juddy. He wanted a private talk with me. We went down to the river. It was private enough there because an airplane had just gone over, scaring Old Swoby into the stockade, and Dolf was covering his retreat. "What's it all about, Big Boy?" "Money. Got any to spare?" "No. How much?" "Seven hundred dollars," he said like a dying swan. I can add three to four. "The bet," I said. "Juddy's bet." "It wasn't my fault." "It never is." "When she passed me the ice pitcher, I went on the razz." "Yeah?" I said. "Was it dice, draw, or dominoes?" He let out a groan. "What does it matter now? The game was crooked. Mom, I could pay you back sure in two months." "I haven't got any seven hundred dollars," I said. He put his head between his big hands. "How'll I ever square it with Juddy?" he moaned. Just then Loren Oliver came out of the stockade with his hand on Old Swoby's shoulder. Angel looked over at him and dropped his voice. "You could get it from him, Mom," he said. "Yes," I said. "But he'd have a right to know what it was for." Angel thought that over. "Et's all right," he said. "He'd better not do anything. I've got plenjty on him." : "You're crazy," I said. "Well, if I haven't, I will have. Enough to can him out of his job." * * * T-TE was so cocksure that I got • LJ - uneasy. I didn't like the smell of it. As for Doc, I didn't worry so much, for I figured that Angel could make good on the loan. "Run along, little boy," I said. "I'll pull you out of this hole. But it's the last." I went over and stood in front of Doc and looked him in the eye. "Doc," I said. "What would you do if I told you I needed seven hundred dollars?" "Let you have it." "Just like that? Without knowing what, which, or why?" He didn't look at me. "We're friends, aren't we, Mom?" "Doc," I said, "you're a funny guy. I don't get you, at times. But, speaking man to man, there aren't a Jot of people in this more or less phony world that I think more of than I do of you." "Cash or check?" he said. He was like that. this was my day to be personal, though. "Cash," I said. "And that isn't all. You aren't doing right by the Fccderia lately. Have you gone sour on my vittles?" "There's nothing the matter." But he wouldn't look at me. "Listen, Doc. You haven't gone and fallen for Juddy, have you?" "She's in love with Todd. You heard what Sears said that day." "I didn't hear her say anything, though." "She didn't deny it." He tried to smile. "Strange as it may seem, she doesn't even like me." "Get this, Loren Oliver," I said. "Juddy's a pretty wise guy about a lot of things. But her own self isn't one of them." * * * A NGEL got his nerve up and •^ owned up to Juddy about his drunk. Of course he didn't say anything about the money; just handed it over. His explanation was all right with Juddy; she didn't ask any embarrassing questions. She even became more friendly with Loren Oliver, which Angel didn't like too well, though it was no secret that she'd be tickled pink when the Welliver lease was out and she could clear away the stockade. I don't believe ahe had any suspicion of how Doc felt about her. Somehow he didn't shape up that way in her natural history book. It took a movie queen to alter her views. Lolita Marquesas was billed in Cherrington, only a hundred miles away, for personal appearance with "Spanish Love." Angel Todd brought the news. "Look me over," he said to Juddy and me. "I'm the most important guy in Welliver University." Well, it seems that last year Lolita had been chosen Sweetheart of Chi Rho Gamma, and she was coming to pay a visit to the Mother Chapter and Angel was chairman of the committee of escort to go and fetch her. "We're throwing a swell dinner for her at Rogues Hall," he said. "You're invited; both of you. Friday at seven. Evening dress." "Thanks," I said. "Movie stars are no treat to me. I've been in show business myself." Besides, I had other reasons for not going. "I'd love to go," Juddy said. Angel couldn't come for her, having the Marquesas on his hands, but he brought her home himself. They were so full of the occasion that they came busting into my room at 3:30 a. m. and sat on the edge of the bed, telling me all about it. "What do you know!" Angel began, and Juddy pushed in with, "Who d'you think the star made a play for?" "Prexy Gilchrist," T said. "They always shoot for the biggest game on the preserve." "Not this time," Angel said, and Juddy chirped, "Loren Oliver!" "God save the king!" I said. Angel did the explaining. "Some of the boys were ragging me on the way back from Cherrington about Tambay and somebody mentioned your Feederia, Mom, and Lolita piped up and said, 'Feederia? What's that?' So Rags Owen told her about Mom. And she said 'Oh, I'd love to eat in one of those funny things.' Then Van Clark chips in and says, 'Loren Oliver's got the inside track with Mom. He's her star boarder.' Lolita asked a lot more questions and then made us stop on the road and telephone Oliver to come to the dinner, and he was to sit next to her." "How did they get on?" I said. "Talked their fool heads off," Juddy said. I was curious. "What did they find to talk about?" "Wandos, by Cripcs!" Angel said. "And she made a date with him for 10 o'clock tomorrow morning —this morning, that is." That made me uneasy. (To Be Continued) J0j».m, ]j p , m San FrorAUNITED STA c It's night-time in the U.
