In fact, it is doubtful whether he would ever have been | graduated had not the Civil War started. The Union Army needs trained officers, so Custer is sent out with the rest. There is not even time for him to say good-bye to Beth Bacon, daughter of the banker in his home town. Custer scores brilliantly in several battles, notably the battle of Bull Run, although his tactics were often against all military precedent. Then, through a confusion in Army orders, he is appointed a Brigadier General, is wounded and returns home a hero. He married Beth, a just reward for his heroism. Although it is an ideally happy marriage, he misses the active life he had been accustomed to. Then he receives an attractive business proposition. The Sharps, father and son, are forming a company to develop the west, build trading posts and put down railroads. He turns down the proposition, however, when he find out that it it the Sharps want to use. Libby, worried about her husband's aimless existence, goes to visit General Winfield Scott in Washington, gets Custer restored to active duty with the cavalry. He is assigned to take command of the Seventh Regiment at Fort Lincoln in the Dakota territories. There he finds that the Sharps have opened stores which are selling liquor to the soldiers and guns to the Indians. But soon the Seventh Cavalry is whipped into shape by the new leader, who has also succeeded in closing up Sharp's saloon, by the simple expedient of threatening to beat young Sharp to a pulp. Under his leadership, too, the Indian tribes arc quelled and he signs a treaty of peac- with the Sioux war chief, Crazy Horse. Part of the terms provide that the Indians will have their own Black Hills forever. No white man will encroach upon their territory. County Clerk, J. W. Baker has been appointed Explosives Licensing Agent for Prescott and Nevada county to serve for the remainder of the war.

Thomas Brewster, secretary and speaker at Friday noon's luncheon in First Christian church, to suggest that the club plan a suitable celebration when that time rolls around.

The movement became international in August, 1912, when clubs in Canada and England were admitted to membership. "Rotary now has 5,100 clubs over the world, with a membership of 215000, the speaker said. Hope's first president was Jess Riley. Twenty-five men have served as president, numbering among them the late George W. Robison, father of the present president of the club. And there have been 14 secretaries. Club membership here has ranged from 16 to. 43, with an average of between 25 and 30, the Rev. Mr. Brewster concluded. Guests Friday were; E. A. Fiscus, Wynne; Preston N. Cook of Monett, Mo., brother of Fred Cook of this city; Jack Lowe, Gurdon; and George W. Peck, Arkadelphia. Senate Repeals Pension Bill Votes 75 to 5 to Revoke Congressional Pensions WASHINGTON -(/P)— In response to angry criticism from all over the country, the senate voted Thursday night, 75 to 5, to scrap the "pensions for congress" law and then decided to give the nation's fighting men abroad a raise in pay. Exactly one month after it voted, 42 to 24, to grant pension privileges to members of congress, the president, vice president and cabinet, the chamber reversed itself in response to widespread reaction that included a "Bundles for Congress" movement and other barbed criticism.

Special Baptist Program Sunday C. S. White Directs Famous Ouachita Choir Thirty-six young people, mostly from Arknsas, will appear at First Baptist Church for o sacred concert at the Sunday morning service under the direction of C. S. White, a Senior student at Ouachita College. The service opens at 10:50. The choir of the College at Arkadelphia has sung to appreciative audiences at the Baptist church for the last few years. Usually all seating facilities of the church auditorium and annex have been required. The program of music which the choir will present in Hope this year is said to be unusually attractive and worshipful. One of the features which has in the past caused favorable comment has been the personal testimonies of the young people and the readings given with musical background. U. S. Congress Pension Probe Actual Cost Would Be Very Little Each Year By JACK STINNETT Washington—By passing the bill giving themselves the option of being blanketed into the civil service retirement act, congressmen have opened the door to an avalanche of criticism, ridicule and abuse. In an election year, that's bad. It's so bad, in fact, that a repeal move is snowballing along, with a lot of sound and fury in both house and senate. Whether u large number of congressmen sincerely think they passed a bad law (many members were not present cither time the measure went through the house, although the vote in the senate was a matter of record, and one congressman declared not one-tenth of the house membership was present when the bill originally was brought up) or whether they have heard the first rumblings of a storm from opponents who will face them at the polls is a matter for conjecture. There is one thing, however: I have never seen u bill passed about which there has been so much misunderstanding and misstatcmcnl. In the first place, the amendment bringing congress under the retirement' law is merely an extension of the already existing pension Jaw which now covers 1,250,000 federal employes. The only way that it differs is that members of congress have to serve five years before they are eligible for participation and they have the option of going into it or staying out. If they go in, they have to contribute to the retirement fund 5 per cent of their salary or $500 annually. If their participation in the «ct is unsound from an actuarial standpoint, then the whole act is unsound. But let's look at some other phases of this new law, The library of Congress says that from the very beginning of congress to now, only 35 per cent of the members have ever served more than two terms. In other words, thpre would never be more them 152 members of the house' eligible for participation. There are at present about 80 senators who have Kerved more than one tenn and would be eligible. The law does have a couple of loopholes that would allow present members of retirement age to pay a small premium and retire with an annuity—but Civil Service, wliiuh has charge of the act, says that such statements us the widely circulated one that u member could pay $1.40 premium and retire immediately lit $4,100 a year is just silly. For example, says the commission, a congressman now 62, with five years of service, could retire and receive about ?500 a year, with payment of only a small premium. If congress had voted into the bill a clause that no member of the 77th congress could participate in the act unless he should be reelcctcd to the 78th, there probably wouldn't have been much furore. Civil service estimates that the annual cost of the act as applied to congress will never be more than ?80.000 a year. Even if all 531 members of congress participated, the Civil Service Commission says the total cost would be only about ?500,000 a year—and congress then would be paying into the fund $275,500 u year from salaries. New Charm for the New Spring Costume Jewelry Bows to Wartime Restrictions By DOROTHY ROE Wide World Fashion Editor Strnnge gods and goddesses, ancient good luck charms and miniature figureheads from the clipper ships of long ago march down your suit lapel this spring. Time was when a lady shrank from wearing her heart on her sleeve. Nowadays she wears it proudly on her lapel, for all the world to see. If her best beau is in the arpiy, she may wear the Mayan God of Victory, as a token of her faith that he will win. Costume jewelry this season hows to wartime restrictions of'vital metals, and turns to ceramics and plastics. Notable among the newest collections arc the colorful Mayan ceramics, modeled after some of the ancient gods of the Incas. You may have them in decorative lapel pins, necklaces and bracelets: the latter strung on braided leather. As a bow to our Good Neighbors, many Latin-American motifs are evident in new costume jewelry designs. Pepe and Pepita, the Mexican twins, in bright enamel, are among the most popular lapel gadgets. You wear them both, for luck. Or you may have a row of ship's Gold Won't Win War, Says Lear Takes Blood and Sacrifice, He Tells Kansas City KANSAS CITY, Mo. -(/»')-- Lt. Gen. Ben Lenr, n stern military disciplinarian, assailed Thursday night wishful thinking in u war lie said would be won not by a golden Maginot line but by blood and sacrifice. The commander o| the Second Army told n University Club forum "great will be our folly if we think our dollars will give us security." "Never overlook the fact that no matter how fine and how considerable the equipment that our factories produce and our ships deliver," he said, "it is (he man whoso flesh is vulnerable but whose spirit is invincible, who will win the battles and brng victory. Your sacrifices will be light compared to theirs. "France built a Maginot line and took confident refuge behind its protection. Let us not err spiritually and morally—mid let me add, strategically—by mentally building a golden Maginot line." He calcd for intensified application by labor and capital alike "to give without stint of their efforts just us the soldier may be called upon to give his life." Every industrial conflict now, he said, will be one for which "blood of our men in uniform will pay or the blood of our fillies upon whom we depend, without whom we would suffer far more greatly." 0 (I prow figurines to provide a decorative touch of color just below your left shoulder.
