Ark.—The- Hope Hitfh I School football team, sparked by a j heavy, hard-charging line that blocked J well and played savage defensive ' football, turned back the Camden Pan- j ther.s here Friday night by a .score of 18 to (I. It wa.s the .seventh victory of the. year for Coach Fy Hammons Bobcats! and kept them among the undefeated teams of Arkansas. I So fierce was the line charging i.s • shown by seven off-side penalties as- i sensed against them. That's how they were beating the Panthers to the j "punch." It wa.s probably the greatest I line performance for the Bobcats this j season. The First Score The same, tense at the start, wa.s hardly two minutes old when the Bobcais scored on a brilliant 63-yard run by Quarterback Bobby Ellen, who run the team like a veteran signal- caller. The Bobcats kicked off, Captain ICa.'.-in getting off a long boot to I he Ill-yard line. It was brought back to I hi- IVCtuntitm iiYmle two first downs and then were forced to punt. Ellen carried the ball for a two-yard Knin through the line. On the next play he .swung wide around his left end, reached the sidelines in front of the Camden bench and then sprinted .straight down the sidelines without being touched—much to the humiliation of the Camden players and Camden fans, Ellen's attempted conversion wa.s The Second Score Early in the second quarter tl\e Boli- ciils got possession on Camdcn's -14 and marched .straight down the field for pay-dirt. Baker ripped through the line for -1. Baker 'made- three in 'the same spot and then Baker found a hole over Wesley Callunin for a first down on the Camden 33. Ellen got loo.se on a nice run to the 1">. Ellen made .six more in two tries and then dropped hack and passed lo Norman Green, end who took the ball on the goal line anil stepped over. Ellen attempted lo kick, but it was wide. The third quarter wa.s mostly ,. punting duel between Ellen and Smith "f Camden. Neither team got within the 25-yard line. A.s the final quarter opened, Hope had possession of the ball in midfield. Nice blocking by the entire Hope line enabled Baker, Colcman Ellen and SinVm.s lo drive down („ Camden's 3(1 on line plays. Ellen got loose for II) more and first down on the 2(1 Baker, who played a .swell ball game all niylil, went over Calhoun for 5 U. l'lae ( ^l|». | J; ,|1 „„ ( ) lt , Ifl On t)u , ncx( try, Calhoun and Green opened a wide hole; for Baker who rammed through for 15 and over the goal line standing »|i.

Line plays by Ijaker netted five but (he scoring tl'rcal ended when Caimlon intercepted a pass. Camden Never Threatens Alioul the best scoring opportunity the Camden loam had was late in the Men, Bears Meet; Both Sides Retreat JASPER, Alta.-W>)—Three fishermen at Trccfoil lake suddenly came upon .seven large bears and promptly took lo the trees. Once they had cli'mbcd them, the anglers—Ted James, J. Smith and Alix flirieni'.o—looked about and discovered the hears also had climbed trees. The animals .showed no signs of coining down, the fishermen descended and went tlicir way. Pine Bluff Wins Against El Dorado Undefeated Zebras Swamp Wildcat Eleven by 21 to 0 PINK BLUFF, Ark—Pine Bluffs Zebras, playing against one of the 'toughest teams in Arkansas in a sea of mud. won their sixth consecutive vic- toy of the season by defeating El Dorado Wildcats 21 to I) here Friday night. The Zebras tallied three touchdowns, an extra [joint ami ;> safely. El Dorado's highly touted passing combination of Blackwell and White failed to show much largely because of the slippery condition of the ball and (he field. However, six passes were made good for a total uf 38M: yards. Eleven tries went incomplete. Pine Bluff tired three passes making one good for 15 yards, losing one by in- complclion and one by interception. The Zebras outgained the visitors 231 to 125 yards and made 15 first downs as compared to eight for El Dorado. • -El iDorado won tho toss and elected to kick. A heavy rain just before game time made the field a sea of mud. La- Fitte took the ball on his 25 and returned to the 40. El Dorado was penalized five yards on each of Pine Bluff's first two line plunges. After gaining three yards on a line plunge, Raymond HuUson ran 30 yards to the E! Dorado 28. On the next play, Pine Bluff was penalized 15 yards for clipping. After a scries of line plays, Robert HuLson threw the ball 15 yeards to hi.s brother. A line plunge gave Pine Bluff first clown. On (lie next piny. Pine Bluff wa.s penalized 15 yards for holding, the second play wa.s called back. After line plays failed, Robert Hutson kicked to the El Dorado end zone. El Dorado took Ihc ball and found the going tough. Forsythc kicked to hi.s 40. Pine Bluff kicked back to the El Dorado goal line. El Dorado also kicked with Hutson receiving Forsyte's kick on his own -15. Two plays later, Raymond Hulson wa.s forced back lo his own '10 where he laleralcd to hi.s brother, Robert Hutson, who ran (it) yards for the first touchdown. The try-for point failed. Business Here Is Best in 10 Years, Survey Discloses Industrial Activity Matched by Construction, Farm Prosperity LIVESTOCK GROWS Farm's Cash Income From Milk and Beef is Increasing Business conditions in Ho|« are better than they have bc^n in ten years. Bumper crops, busy industrial plants, unprecedented construction, all have contributed to this prosperity. • Hope's industries which include the Brunei- Ivory Handle Company, Hope Basket Company, Temple Cotton Oil Company. Hope Brick Works, Guntcr Bros. Lumber Company, Hope Heading Company and Kraft Phcnix Cheese Corporation employ more than 700 people and practically every plant is running at capacity. The recent increase in wages, together with overtime, has swelled payrolls to a ten'year high. The Brunei- Ivory Handle Company, who ship to 'many European countries, Australia and New Zealand, have been forced to cancel all delivered prices to the.se countries, but still are doing a good business with them on a "cash .md carry" basis.

S. Shipping Tills is (lie second of a scries of four stories on German U- Ixml activity against American shipping during (he World War. By SAMUEL TAYLOR MOORE Written for NEA Service Fishermen on Cape Cod still chuckle when they tell you the story of a raiding U-boat's comic opera engagement with a railroad tug and four barges off Orleans the morning of July 21, 1918. Whether Kapitan-leutenant von Old cnburg of the U-156 was drunk with beverages or merely with success 1 , they cannot say. No submarine commander in his senses would have wasted three torpedoes on the unimpressive targets this one selected. "Navy crews had been fruitlessly searching for U-boats by sea and by air, but it was the privilege of Cape Cod natives and summer visitors to sec one in action. Most of the latter were still in bed when the U-156 sent its torpedoes shuttling across the water towards the 435-ton tug Perth Amboy with its four barges in tow. All three charges missed, so von Oldenburg popped his vessel to the surface. For the next hour and a half his crew demonstrated the poorest marksmanship seen since Aunt Tillic tried to ring the big gong in the Coney Island shooting gallery. Just as Aunt Tillie finally climbed over the counter to make sure she wouldn't miss, so the submarine closed in on its targets. It finally sank the four barges and set the tug on fire. Attracted by the shooting, people lined the shoreline like fans at a Softball game. Coast guardsmen fired with rifles from the shore, but the sub was just out of range. Seaplanes add Their Bit From Chatham naval base, four seaplanes joined the attack. The bombs failed to go off. U was said German spies had tampered with them. Six seamen were wounded by the guns of the U-156, but the tug itself floated and was salvaged. After this opera bouffc, von Oldenburg sailed for the fishing banks. He captured a trawler, armed it with a deck gun and sent it out to destroy unsuspecting fishermen. If von Oldenburg or his crew were drunk at the time of the attack on the barges, they had reason for celebration. During the week preceding, the U-15G had been laying mines along the lanes to New York harbor. Two days before the Cape Cod farce, one of these mines claimed the armored cruiser San Diego, only U. S. Navy fighting ship sunk on this tide of the Atlantic. Only six lives were lost among the crew of 1189 officers and men when the 14,000 ton vessel with 30-odd down off Fire Island. Lone U-Buat Sank 31 Ships Supplies for many months and shells for many attacks could be carried in the huge hulk of the German raider U-156. Her sister ship, the U-155, is shown above." The U-156 had left Germany about June 15. Ten days later she .sank the have given them u lead and probably the game. They also failed in two other drives, losing the ball in the shadow of North goal.

Two clays later the U-156 sank the 1987-ton Norwcigian bark Marosa. The crew was permitted to load boats before the vessel was shelled. The captain of the Norwcigian schooner Manx King, 1729 tons, protested lhal .she was neutral when stopped by the U-156. "I am sorry," replied (he German boarding officer, "but she curries contraband.
