There were 65 kicks during the game, which must be some kind of a record. The game was a spectacular symphony of spills and thrills that had the soaked fans clutching each other by the throat as they stood on the pneumonia-infested lumber of Ouchita .stadium. Early in the fourth period Coach Bill Walton's Tigers sloshed to the Teachers' one-yard line only to lose Ibe ball on downs. Another blocked punt llhey couldn't get 'cm all away in the mire) set the .slatfe for Ouchila's only but scary threat. One more inundated yard at that particular point and the Woodsons would have been blacked out after a three-yard rule. Kicking and playing for a break, of course, was Ihc orthodox procedure under the conditions, but IB kicks, minus kick-offs and punt after safety is .something to write about. If upwards of •!() pa.sscs on a dry field can he callfd "ra/./.lc-da/./le," then tili kicks certainly can be phrased "boolle woodle.' Kick No. 47 was kicked out of bounds by Ihc Teachers' J, V.

Rider, Austin and Baker Urge Support in RedjCross Campaign On Armistic Day not only do we celebrate the end oi the end of the First Great World War, but also we launch in the United States the Annual Red Cross Roll Call. It has been a privilege to serve as a Member of the ...Directors of the Hempstead County Chapter of the Amer- - ican Red Cross during the past three years. All our Roll Call workers are volunteers and are-serving without compensation. This noble spirit on their part is in keeping with the high aims of the Red Cross. Since I have been County Judge, I have seen the Red Cross extending aid in a number; of severe disasters in this County. At Fulton during the great flood, it did a wonderful job. Its workers were ready to aid and did aid the people of Spring Hill and Bodcaw Townships that were injured and whose homes were blown away. The same was true at Ozan during the past year when a tornado destroyed several homes there. Most of this disaster relief has gone to the rural people and i want, to appeal to our rural citizens to join hands with iht> workers in your own community' and help make this Roll Call the most successful in our history. Frank Rider, County Judge J feel sure that every Hempstead County teacher is completely in sympathy with the spirit of tlie American Red Cross and that each teacher endorses whole heartedly the great humanitarian program it endorses. At the beginning of this year's Annual Roll Call, I want to commend it to you all our teachers and school people throughout Hempstead County. I hope that every teacher will find it possible to enroll as a member. I trust that they wfll give the Roll Call all possible publicity through the schools and will willingly do their bit in any way possible to make this Roll Call successful. ., E. E. Austin, County School Examiner Tlu-\ Red Cross in recent years has taken forward steps in reducing fatalities on our highways, it ha,--, always stood reaily to aid those left destitute by disasters. It has helped the people of Hempstead County in such instances readily and willingly many times in the past, 1 stron-rlv recommend to our citizens that they all join hands Vo aid the volunteer workers engaging in this year's Roll Call.

Hitler placed a wreath on the caskets of the seven victims after arriving in Munich unannounced, presumably by plane. After his beer hall visit Hitler called at a hospital to visit the 63 persons who were injured.

Roosevelt' Speaks WASHINGTON - tfP) _ President Roosevelt asserted Saturday the world needed a "new and better peace" than that at the end of tlie last World war —a peace that would cause men to "lay down the weapons of hatred" and forego "purposeless ambitions" which have created fear. The chief executive set forth his peace aims in an address to the cadets of Virginia Military Institute, Lexington, Va. He spoke from the White House by long-distance telephone. Dutch Ask Explanation AMSTERDAM, Holland — (/P) — An authorized statement Friday night said The Netherlands would ask Germany to investigate Thursday night's fatal border incident which it referred to as a "serious crime." The statement was made public as the United States consulate advised Saturday to leave The Netherlands, which like Belgium was taking precautionary measures against invasion. Officials said a group crossed the frontier from Germany near the Ven- loo border station, killed one man, wounded another and took tlie victims and several companions in a Netherlands automobile back to Germany. Tlie tense feeling in The Netherlands was increased by the fact that no official explanation has been made lo hit the mystery concerning the strange incident. Immediately after the shooting, Netherlands army leaves were cancelled and guards put around public buildings. The government tightened restrictions on news transmission as a result of recent dispatches on military preparations. Foreign correspondents were" warned they must confine their dispatches on defenses to details published in Netherlands newspapers. The United States consulate said Americans would be told that "now is a good time to get wives and dispensable American members of their staffs out of the country." There are about 1,000 Americans in Ihe Netherlands. It was understood that if there should be any German attack the Belgian border would be closed. •J,!
