Moore defeated A. G. Thompson, of Lake Village. He succeeds L. M. Goza of Arkadclphia, who will complete his third IcarYn next June. Others elected were Roy Duwson, Oat-cola, who defeated R. B.

North Little Rock, for the vacancy on the executive committee created by Moore's elevation to Die presidency; and Goza to the executive committee lo succeed Jim Abraham of Lonoke whose term expired. Other members of the executive committee are J. E. Howard of Stuttgart and Ben R. Williams of Ashdown. Their terms do not expire until next year. The proposal to replace the literary phase of the annual state and district 'meets was presented by John Trice of Springdale and mot no opposition from the floor. It carried on a voice vole. Instead of the contests in algebra, English, geomolry.spelling, Latin, history, government, typing, shorthand, extemporaneous speaking, declamation reading, piano, violin, voice and quar- tettes, the sole competition each year in addition to athletic events will be eight musical events consisting of vocal renditions by trios, glccclubs, quartettes, choruses and ensembles for girl.s and boys. The AAA, made up of school heads, is identical with the state association for group and inlcrschool contests. The amendment which displaced the literary contests al.so provided that: Scoring be changed from first, second, and third places to group ratings such as superior, excellent, good, fair, and below average. Thus, where, in ti'mes past, three entries ranged first, second and third, they might be all grouped under a superior rating, allowing some type of ranking for all contestants. All district participants who receive superior and excellent ratings shall be eligible for the .state contest. The festival will be held in Little Rock in 1910, thereafter at a place to he selected by the executive committee. Certificates of merit will be awarded the schools for the winning places, eliminating the listing of individual contestants und individual awards.

Here Is another of u scries of stories on these leaders. By WILLIS THORNTON NEAScrvlcc Staff Correspondent Closed and locked arc the doors of a recently-busy office in the Boulevard Saint-Gcrmaine. in Paris. It is the main European office of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Such work as it can carry on today has been moved lo L....a Bauie, tiny port town. But the head of the League's London office has been called up for military service, its executive head for all Europe has been called to Red Cross work at Geneva. The Endowment's advisory committee for Europe has scattered to the winds: ihc Austrians and Czechs forced to beco'me Germans, one German member newly become a British- er, the Spanish and Italian members no longer welcome in their own countries, the Hungarian member now become Prime Minister. Were Andrew Carnegie alive today, as he was when war broke out in 1914, he might say today as then, "all my air castles of world peace have fallen about 'me like a house of cards." Scottish Immigrant, Works In Mills White-haired Carnegie in his castle fit Skibo looked back on a long life then. Born in Dumferline, Scotland, he had emigrated to America with his father while he was a mere boy. He got work as a bobbin-boy in a cotton mill, then as a telegraph operator. From this meager Mart he drifted into railroading, oil speculation, and finally into iron and steel. He built the Edgar Thompson rail mill, bought the Homestead pant, and by 1901 was ruler of an empire of iron, steel, coal and transport that was one of Die chief constituents of the U. S. Steel Corporation when it was formed in 1901. Carnegie, fabulously rich, had acute views of the responsibilities that went with his wealth. He built 2500 public libraries, founded and aided colleges. He contributed largely to the building of the Peace Palace at The Hague— where the Permanent Court of International Justice has held its sessions —and to the construction of the Pan- American building in Washington. Founds Kiuloumcn to Abolish War His major move toward peace came in 1910 when with ?10.000,000 he founded the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace for "the speedy abolition of international war between the so-called civilized nations. The endowment was given the broadest powers to work for international peace in any way its 27 trustees desired, Much of its work has been in aiding other peace societies, and in making and publishing studies on subjects, economic and political, that bear on peace. Carnegie himself, though sincerely Allies Prepare to Begin Buying War Supplies in U. Si Churchill in Paris to Make Joint Plans With the French ALLIES CHEERED UP American Action Apparently Draws no Resentment From Berlin PARIS, France—(/P)—Great Britain and France, grasping at the chance offered by the United 'States' lifting of the embargo conferred Saturday on a joint plan for purchase of war materials overseas. Following the arrival Thursday of Winston Churchill, first lord of the British admiralty, authorized sources disclosed that Die French and British governments arc studying such questions as payment, shipment and distribution between them of American Mussolini Speaks ROME, Italy—(yp>—Premier Mussolini, addressing a cheering crowd celebrating the 21st anniversary of Italy's World war armistice with Austro- Hungary, declared Saturday that Italy is strengthening her "will nncl forces for tomorrow." Germany Expected Repeal BERLIN, Germany — (/P)— Nazi Germany appeared resigned Friday night lo the prospect that lifting of the United Stales arms embargo would open a vast arsenal to Great Britain and France. "We do not understimale importance of this development," an authoritative spokesman said, "but of course it is a matter -with which Germany had cal. culated and as far as possible discounted." There was little evidence of irritation in official quarters over lifting Iho, embargo One spokesman said he found satisfaction in the evidence there was considerable opposition within the United Slates to removing the amis ban. "The close preliminary vote in the house indicates about 30 men in that body could have retained th embargo this spokesman added. "This is a close decision—surprising in view of this tremendous British propaganda to sway American opinion and evidence that there is a solid clement within the United States opposing arms mu- nition sales to warring powers." Official German comment on lifting the embargo was lacking. The German press devoted little space to thl Washington developments;. Correspondents questioning the Wai- Office for some statistics on Polish losses in Ihc war on the Ecastern Front were informed no accurate figures would be available "for at least two years." A War Office spokesman estimated that slightly less than 2,000,000 Polish soldiers were in the field at various stages of mobilization, that 8'10,000 were taken as prisoners by the Germans or Russians und about 60,000 escaped over nearby borders, This would leave about 1,000,000 unaccounted for.

He was naturally pro-Ally when the World war began, though he believed the German Kaiser y blameless and -merely a vie- tim of his own military clique. Yet he, who had given $10,000,000 to buy peace, was quickly to congratulate Charles Schwab when the little town of Bethlehem (Pa.) had begun to turn out such a volume of war supplies as to win for Schwab a personal tribute from Lord Fisher. The Bethlehem works were building, among other war materials, submarines for the Dardanelles campaign. Further. Carnegie was eager for Ihc United States to get inlo the World war and "finish the job." He- was quite impatient with Tfilson for his delays. The .steel magnate wrote Wilson to this effect two 'months before ihc war was declared, and closed with the same hope that was in millions of other breasts in (hose days; the war won and peace resumed, "at the next meeting at The Hague we would abolish war forever.''

Argentina Tough One for U.S. Trade «u .. Winning- Its Support Means Lower Tariffs on Farm Goods By PRKSTON GROVER WASHINGTON - In an upstairs rooip in the quarters of the almost- forgoltcn tariff commission there is being held the preliminary test that will show how far the U. S. will go in opening its markets to South America. The immediate question: What concessions will the U. S. give Argentina in their projected reciprocal trade pact? This country already has a rcceipr- ocal trade agreement with Brazil. While that is important, it doesn't test our 'good neighbor' policy as docs the proposed pact with Argentina. Brazil produces a number of items (such as coffee) which we vitally need, and in turn can absorb our manfacturcd products without stint. Argentina, on the- other hand, is like the United States in many res- peels and is becoming more so yearly. She has an enormous 'midwest" where cattle, corn, dairy products, pounltrv and wheat are produced. Of all the South American countries, Argentina is most advanced in manufacturing. Argentina can use a host of American manufactured articles, however. But to pay for them she must .ship to the United States the things we have most of already: Cattle, corn, turkeys, hides. Kc.vslone Stale Argentina is (he keystone country in South America. Farthest from the United States geographically, she al- .so is farthest in sentiment. She always has leaned toward Europe, which furnished a belter market for her wealth of raw products and was eager to supply manufactures in return. A solid wall of opposition arose a I once to making any concessions to Argentina at all. The tariff-commission hearings give a misleading impression, however, because rarely does- anyone but. an opponent of concessions testify. Of several score witnesses heard in the opening days of the hearing, only one, a shoe manufacturing concern, asked lo have tariff barriers lowered. He wanted more South American hides lo come in. The first days found a .steady stream of senators and congressmen, each representing .some sectional interest. Senator Connally was an example. He pointed out that Texas produces cattle, hides, turkeys and a host of other products which would be hit by rush of Soulh American goods lower tariff walls. "We feel kindly toward Argentina." he .said, "but we do not feel so kindly thai we arc willing to sacrifice our own farmers lo help the cowboys of Ihc pampas.' 'He added: "I voted for the trade agreements law when it was passed, but I have not been happy ever since about the vote." Same Old Story Although 14 senators and two .-:cofc or more Jlou.se members told .-.initial any over Independent Group Triumphs in AEA Ben Williams, Ash clown clown Superintendent, Elected President BULLETIN LITTLE ROCK—(ff)—Ralph B. Jones, Fort Smith, retiring president of the Arkansas Education association, said Saturday that Friday night's election of new officers headed by Ben R. Williams, Ashdown, "settled the issue of political dominance. In a statement Saturday Jones said: "Regardless of the personalities involved, it seems to me that the results of our vote indicate that the teachers of Arkansas have settled once and for all the question whether they want an independent organization or one dominated by other agencies," • LITTLE ROCK - All candidates supported by a sclfstyled non-political faction were swept into office at the closing session of the Arkansas Education Association convention Friday.

Answers un 1'ugc Two Physicians Guard Against Infection Anxiety Is Felt Over Condition of Mrs. Kelly Bryant Husband and relatives of Mrs. Kelly Bryant, attending the bedside of the injured Hope school teacher at Townsend hospital in Arkadelphia, expressed fear Saturday of possible infection as the result of her ankle injury. Mr. Bryant, in a telephone report to the newspaper at noon Saturday, said: "We are greatly worried over possible infection. "We're just waiting here—wailing on developments. By Sunday we may know something definite. That's about all I can tell you."

Path Is Cleared for Al Capone's Release CHICAGO Al Capono through his attorney, cleared the path Friday for his release from Terminal Island prison where he is finishing a 11-year term for income tax evasion.

Tcitclbaum, who paid the checks through Ihc Chicago City Bank and Trust company, said .?lo,l*0 of the total was being paid under protest since Cupone was convicted on only five of 2'i counts and Teitc-Ibaum fell (he rhould be lequired lo pay only 1 fivc-twcnty-seconds of the court costs.

Norway Gives City of Flint to Crew; Danger Persists American Crew Now Fear Their Vessel Is a "Marked Ship" GERM AN S ANGERED Prize Crew Interned, and Berlin Protests to \ Norwegians OSOLO, Norway —(/P)— A German protest against the liberation of the American freighter City of Flint arid interment of her German prize crew was delivered Saturday to the foreign office, but well-informed sources expressed the opinion it would be re- jcted. The Norwegian government's decision in freeing the vessel was based on. chapter 13, article 21, of the Hague convention rules, which says that a prize can be taken into a neutral port only because she is unseaworthy or because of weather, or lack of fuel or provisions. The Germans sadi a member of the American crew necde mdeical attention when the ship anchored at Haugesund Friday night, but,a Norwegian surgeon who looked at him said his condition was not serious enough to justify calling at a neutral port. There was considerable telephoning between Oslo and Berlin during Friday night, and informed persons said there would be "plenty of argument' 'with Norwegians in ensuing days. U. S. SaJlors Doubtful BERGEN, Norway — (&)— American crewmen aboard the City of Flint told the Associated Press Saturday' they feared the vessel nowis a "marked ship" on the seas, and expressed doubt concerning thir next move.

The Admiralty made no explanatory comment in a statement issued at 1:25 a. m., but one Norwegian, usually well-informed, said the ship was free to sail away whenever she wished. A German Ruse WASHINGTON -VP)- The Slate Department received an official dispatch Friday night saying that the American freighter City of Flint "npw. flies the American flag." The department issued the following statement. "The American minister to Norway, Mrs. J. Borden Harriman./reported at 2 Saturday morning (Oslo, Norway, time) that she had received a telephonic report from the American consul at Begcn, Mr. Maurice P. Dunlap, to the effect that the American steamship City of Flint now flies the American flag, the Germany prize crew having been interned and the American crew released by Norwegian authorities. Consul Dunlap had been so informed by Norwegian naval authorities at Bergen. "It appears that the cimmander of the German prize crew had requested permission to enter the harbor at Ha, ugcsund on the ground that he wished to deliver an American sailor who was ill to the American consul. "The Norwegian admiral promptly sent a doctor aboard the vessel to determine the facts. After investigation the doctor reported that the seaman was not sufficiently ill to justify granting permission for the vessel to anchor. Nevertheless the vessel did anchor and the Norwegian authorities then took the action outline, in accordance with international law." Officials were relieved by the news because, since the freighter was captured last month, thy had feared for the safely of the American crew of 40 under Capt. Joseph Gainard.
