D. Rider of Patmos, turned in u total of 535.05 which puts Bodcaw over Hie top. The ciuola assigned to the township was ?30.00. Mr. Rider was ably assisted by Hugh Keith an-1 A. E. Jameson in obtaining thc.se excellent results. Royaco Wciscnboigcr, Rural Roll Call Chairman, predicted that workers in each of the other ten townships exclusive of De Roan and Bodcaw would reach their respective quotas by Saturday, Nov. 25, the dead lino for closing the roll call, and make their reports not lab;- than Nov. 28 .so that the entire roll call could be closed by Nov. 30. He urges all persons in the county at large, who have not .yet enlisted in this year's roll call to see their workers, ro leave ihcu- contribution with him or the banks at Hope and he will see that credit is given to the correct township.

Capone Gang Carries on, But Not for Him; Mob Turns From Illegal Liquor to Gambling and Vice Lawrence Mangano Al Capone Murray Humphreys Chicago isn't sure that Al Capone still holds the aces in the came he played before prison. Many of,Ills old. associates still are active, but doubt is raised that Capone controls them. His brother, Ralph is bound by ties of blood, but he said recently he is working- for §50 a week. Nitti, once regarded as the "brains" of the group, himself served an income tax sentence. While he was away, Humphreys was regarded as "No. 1" man. Mangnno and •'Nitli were .two of those-named by the state's attorney in a list of Chicago vice and gambling chiefs.: • - , • Jl ... . - Funds for County Library Included by Quorum Court No Appropriation Made for Annual Hempstead ^ County Fair TAX LEVIES FIXED Equalization Board and Road Commissioners Are Elected Hempstead County Quorum Court adopted a budget of $28,330 for 1940 county operating expenses, fixed tax rates, elected a county tax equalization board and named road commissioners at its session at Hope city hall Monday afternoon. Twenty-two justices attended. The 1940 budget of $28,330 exceeds the 1939 budget by ?1,303. Included in the new budget is an appropriation of $300 for a county library project. By appropriating this sum it was explained that $3,000 a year would be forthcoming from other sources for the county-wide library project. The court failed to appropriate any money for the county fair which was asked by R, P. Bowen, secretary of Hope chamber of commerce.

Underworld Game By NEA Service CHICAGO—Al Caponc's gangland empire has transferred its activities to new fields since its leader was bundled off to prison—And maybe its allegiance has been transferred, too. If Capone should try to resume his -©interrupted career following his re- 1 lease from more than seven years in prison, he would find the field still profitable. But that bis old lieutenants who still are active would be willing to put him back at the top of the heap is far from certain. The Capone syndicate, as Chicago police call the post-repeal hangover of the old mob, shifted its attention for the most part to more lawful fields when repeal ended the big money in illicit liquor. The group is said to still control part of the Windy City's cleaning and dyeing industry. Horse racing, vice and gambling add to the syndicate's revenue. Most of Chicago's betting handbooks are under its management. Police say bookies who wish to operate under their own aspiccs arc forced to pay protection in order to stay healthy and in business. i Slaying Reveal Syndicate's Activity The recent shotgun slaying of Edward J. O'Hare, president of Chicago's Sportsman Park race track revealed Band Benefit Show at Saenger Friday Proceeds to Send High Band to Pine Bluff On Thanksgiving Day Owing to the football game being arranged between Hope and Benton for Thursday night, the concert and benefit show for the High School Band has been changed to Friday night. Thus there will be no conflict in the two attractions and the band will play and march as usual at the game, weather permitting. Proceeds from the advance ticket sale to the Friday night show will be used , to help defray expenses in sending the band to Pine Bluff for the Thanksgiving game. Both -the possibility of a championship game there and the fact that Pine Bluff boasts one of the finest Class A bands in the state make the presence of the D —- — Hope High band, a champion Class Keported beriOUSly HI B »"»d itself, at the Turkey-Day game imperative. The feature attraction on the benefit program Friday night will be a concert similar to one given several weeks ago. However, this concert will be longer and will contain many new features. Further details will be announced later this week. A movement to establish a 10-hour day was active in England between 1830 aiio 1847. Announcements Must Be Signed Within the last several weeks The Star has received a number of announcements which, because their senders failed to sign name and address, can not be published. Signatures arc not printed, but the authority back of the announcement must be known to the management before it can be used. This rule is enforced absolutely in announcements concerning weddings, engagements, births and deaths. If any subscriber has sent such an announcement to us and failed to get it published it is because the announcement was not signed—and unsigned communications arc treated alike, even though the omission is an oversight. Postoff ice Observe Holiday & Services at Local Office Will Be Shortened On Thursday Inasmucfi a.s Thurcsday, November 23, has bi^en designated as Thanksgiving Da>( by proclamation of President Roostveil. it will be observed as a holiday by the Hope post office. Since t^ii.s dale, however, will .not be generally observed locally as Thanksgiving Day, service at the post office \yill not be entirely suspended. There' will be one delivery of mail on the city routes. Thursday morning, ai.d -service will be maintained at all windows from 9:00 a. in. till 1:00 p. m. There will be no delivery of mail un rural routes. what police believe is the syndicate's intention to branch out into other field's of professional sport. O'Hare was found to be a director of the Chicago Cardinals, professional foot- hall club, and was known to have been angling for a roller skating derby concession in several southern states. O'Hare was regarded as 'front" man for the syndicate and as Capone's stand in during the latter's Alcatraz stay. Chicago police claim to be as mystified as the public about the part former Capone lieutenants play in the present syndicate setup. Two years ago State's Attorney Courtney listed Frank Nitti, Charles Fischctti, Louis Campagna, Lawrence Mangano and Danny Stanton among the county's vice and gambling chiefs. Many Old Cronies Still in Chicago Still known to be around Chicago are Frank Nitli, once regarded as the brains of the mob; Murray Humpherys, regarded as tile gang's No. 1 man while Nitli wa.s serving an income tax term; Jack Guzik, one time general manager of the syndicate; Lawrence Mangano and others. Ralph Capone, Al's brother, recently stated he was employed at $50 a week by a water bottling concern. Frank Diamond, the ex-gangster's brother-in-law and former bodyguard, told police he was a contractor. Danny Stanton, questioned last October about a fatal shooting, said he was a tavern owner.

LONDON, Eng.—(#•)—Great Britain has decided to seize exports of German ownership or origin on the high seas, Prime Minister Chamberlain announced Tuesday, in retaliation for what he called "Many violations of international law, and the ruthless brutality of German methods." As Chamberlain made his announcement to the House of Commons attributing to German mines the heavy merchantship losses off the British east coast of the past few days another ship, the 11,930-ton Japanese passenger liner Terukuni Maru, was sunk off the east coast. The sinking liner carried a crew of 180 and 26 passengers. Other craft rushed to the rescue, and some survivors wore brought to shore. British reprisals against Germany, extending the blockade to exports as well as imports, would mean concentration on neutral shipping since Germany herself has practically no ships at sea now. The aim would be to halt completely all sea commerce with Germany. Chamberlain made his statement in reply to a question by Laborilc Loader Clement Alt lee on whether the government proposed to take action as the result of the laying of mines. Tuesday the British mine-sweeper trawler Mastiff was added to the toll, becoming Britain's sixth admitted naval loss of the war. U. S. Noa-Commital WASHINGTON—i/I')—Sumncr Welles, acting secretary of state, said Tuesday that the United States has advised Britain it is not to be understood as endorsing any principle of interference with its neutral trade. Welles made his statement shortly after the British embassy had disclosed that December 1 the British would start a pro-sailing system of investigating American exports to 11 European neutral nations.
