S. Designation 171 on Highway No. 29 ^The Board of Directors of the Hope Climnber of Commerce in aclvnncc of Ilic nnnunl meeting Thursday makes the following report to the member- receipts and year ending ship, of the activities, expenditures, for the August 1, 1938: Coiinly Seal Kcmovnl 'Die oulstaiuling aim of the Chamber 'if Commerce for this year was the removal of the County Seat from Washington lo Hope. This has been done at an expense of ?2,213.1G. This amount includes the cost of printing and circulating the petitions for removal and all election expenses. This is much less than was spent in previous attempts. While every member of the board of directors assisted in the work, the- heavy burden of initiating the procedure fell on Mayor Albert Graves and E. F. McFaddin, who devoted a very considerable part of their time to clearing title to the property and attending to the many legal details necessary to the successful starting of this campaign. The board of directors wish to thank the hundreds of splendid citizens of Hope and llempstcad county for their cooperation in donating their lime and money to the accomplishment of this most important aim of the Chamber of Commerce. Trade Extension The Ixmrd of directors is 'proud of the Trade Extension Program last winter and spring, when 25 Trade Days were observed by the merchants of Mope. These Trades Days were attended by more than 50,000 shoppers in the trade territory of Hope. Koads Ilic board of directors has secured the joint request of the Arkansas Stale Highway 'Commission and the' Louisiana Highway Commission to the American Association of Highway Officials for H recommendation to the Federal Bureau of Roads for the extension of U. S. 171 from Shreveporl lo Hope, Nashville and OcQuccn. The rednsignation of this road from Shreveporl to OcQuccn is esscnlial to securing a high typo of paving on this road and we believe the request will Ix- granted. Much depends on the continued emphasis of this important .matter. Air Mail Day The Chamber of Commerce sponsored Air Mail Driy in Hope and led the ••n tire .-'tatc in the number of air mail letters picked up (hat day. In doing this, Hope received recognition all over Arkansas and the nation, and materially hastened the construction and equippig of n hospital." Loses Hating LITTLE KOCK-(/P)-Diselosuro that the American Medical Association had dropped .the University of Arkansas Medical School from its list of "approved" institutions brought a statement from Governor Bailey Monday that he would call a meeting of the university Board of Trustees within the next two weeks "lo take steps necessary to remedy the situation at once." The name of the Medical School was carried on the A. M. A. list just released with a foot note explanation that the institution was "non-rated," bul that all students now enrolled would be accredited upon their graduation as having been graduated from a Grade A school. Dr. Frank Vinsonhaler, clean, said that enrollment for the fall term, which opens September 2f>, had Ix-en under way for several months and that, students entering as freshmen would be given the privileges of others enrolled in so far us graduation from a Grade A institution was concerned. "There is not going to bc anything left undone to re-establish Die rating of that school," Governor Builcy said. He said he was familiar with the situation and knew it was brought about by administrative details which could bc corrected. Dean Vinsonhaler said one of the principal requirements .set out by the association was the obtaining of a stale charity hospital for use by the school. Pointing out thai an agreement was reached several weeks ago between the university Board of Trustees and the Board of Control of the State hospital whereby members of the Medical School faculty would assist in treating physically diseased patients at the hospital, Dean Vinsonhaler said: "We had hoped that this arrangement, giving the Medical School control of more tha ntlic 200-hed requirement, would be accepted as a substitute for the charity hospital requirement, bul apparently it wasn't The 1937 legislature defeated a bill under which the state would have purchased Little Hock City hospital for .use , as a jtiite'charity hospital under supervision and ical School. control of the Mcd- 154-Pound Melon Brought to Hope J.

LITTLE ROCK-OfficiaLs of the. Arkansas Copper company, which was incorporated lasl Wednesday, arc planning construction of a mill at a mine IS'/i miles southwest of Norman, Montgomery county, in the Ouachitn National Forest, Dr. W. C. Stenger, temporary vice president and general manager of the company, said Monday. The mill, which would bc powered by a Diesel engine, would have a capacity for reducing daily 15 tons of mineral ore into a concentrate for shipment to refineries for final processing before marketing. The ore would bc crushed into a powder, to be run through a flotation system for extraclion of the minerals by chemicals. Thc capacity of the mill, as designed, could bc increased. Tests show the mine's ore to possess a value of from ?15 to ?1GO per ton in copper, gold, and silver, officials said. The copper content varies from seven to 92 per cent, Ore containing only two per cent copper is mined profitably, Dr. Stenger said. The mine was opened during the World war by a company in search of manganese. About ?150,000 was said to have been spent in erecting a large plant and in boring a tunnel about 850 feel into the side of a mountain at a poiat bout 150 feet from it.s top. — —• r ^ Cows Given Baths Before Each Milking KCOTTSBLUFF, Neb.- (/r, -Seolts- hluff dairymen conform to cleanliness regulations not only by keeping their barns spotless bul by giving their cowse two baths a day.

Dies Demands Labor Department Open Bridges Case Original Deportation Proceedings Aginst CIO Leader Suspended AN ALIEN RADICAL Labor Department Asserts Case Must Await Previous Court Action WASHINGTON - (/!•) _ Chairman Dies, Texas Democrat, of the house committee investigating un-Americanism, demanded Tuesday that Secretary of Labor Perkins resume deportation proceedings at once ayainst Harry Bridves, West Coast CIO maritime leader. "Your file discloses a number of depositions of witnesses who testified thai Harry Bridges was a member of lhc Communisl parly," Dies wrole Miss Perkins, after studying Department of Labor records.

Immigration Commissioner James J. Houghteling said Ihe decision might prevent Bridges' dcportalion. Tine New Orleans circuit court had stopped the deportation of Strecker on the ground that the law does not forbid aliens to belong to the "Communist party or any other party except one which teaches overthrow by force or violence of the government of the United States." Dies declared: "I can not sec how the Strecker case would have any bearing uporj the Harry Bridges case, since the facts arc dissimilar."

Morris, 23. whose parents both were teachers, won scholarships valued at $3,000 in her first yeear. Miss Morris is credited with discovering a method of solving problems in aerodynamics which hitherto defied all mathematicians. By PRESTON GBOVER WASHlNGTON.-One of J. Edgar Hoover's highly prized possessions, in addition to the bullel proof vest of John Dillinger, is a letler from ail earnest admirer who concluded a long dissertation on crime by saying: "After long study, I have concluded thai Ihe besl way lo end crime is to outlaw it." Just as the Department of Justice presses its campaign to outlaw price- fixing and monopoly, the Posoffice Deparment discloses, and boasts, that it does the neatest bit of profiteering in the land. For 7 cents it can manufacture a sheet of 100 three cent stamps, sell them to a stamp collector and reap a clear profit of $2.93. It could profit even more if stamp collectors bought whole sheets of ?5 stamps, which don't cost much more to print than the three centers. Bul stamp collectors don't buy the costly ones wholesale. Funny Philately So profitable is the business of selling to stamp collectors that the Dc- parlmcnl is thinking of taking a truck load on a transcontinental tour to drum up business. As one postman caluculated, if a million people could be persuaded to start collecting stamps and in the course of time bought ?100 worth each, that would lie ?100,000,000, almost clear profit—as long as they keep them in their collections. If they use them lo send letters the profit is gone. It costs the Department all of the three cents to carry the letler. It all sounds sort of dreamy-eyed to us, but then, we don't collect stamps. Anyway, the truck isn't going for a while. There's a hitch. Taking a million dollars worth of stamps across the country without a nescorl seems risky. If an armed escort went along, it would eat up part of the profit. Mr. Farley hasn't solved that one yet. Incidentally, the people who buy those $5 stamps are bankers and movie companies. They plaster them on insured securities and on films being hurried about the country. Practice Makes Puncture This piece began with G-men ajid can end by telling how they practice scooting kidnapers. A t-arket resemb- Why Hungary Goes Along With Reich GERMANY The map above shows why once-powerful Hungary has reason to line up with Hitler's Germany. The visit of Regent Nicholas Horthy, left, Hungary's "uncrowned king," to Berlin has brought reports that henceforth Hitler will be allowed to use 'Hungary' as a. springboard for economic penetration in the Balkans in return for formidable military protection. The Little Entente— composed of Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and Rumania, all of which countries gained large chunks of Hungary after the war—opposes German-Hungarian friendship because of Hungary's key position. Hitler reportedly has guaranteed the boundaries of Hungary, and the Entente fears both Germany and Hungary will benefit territorially at the Entente's expense.

Against Smith in Carolina, Favors McAdoo in California By the Associated Press President Roosevelt's campaign for election r»f "liberal" legislators was undergoing tests Tuesday in Democratic primaries on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Senators Ellison D. (Cotlon Ed) Smith, of South Carolina, and William W. McAdoo, of California, were up for renomination—but only the latter bore presidential endorsement. Mr. Roosevelt had indicated clearly that he hoped Smith would lose to Governor Olin D. Johnson, avowed New Dealer. French and British Cabinets Discuss the German Crisis British Demand Hitler Halt Campaign of Hate Against Czechs NEW FRENCH EDICT Cabinet Obtains Emergency War Control Over Industry LONDON, Eng.— (If)— The cabinets of the British-French Entente, meeting in the face of the most realistic war menace since 1914, Tuesday drafted urgent pleas to preserve world peace or meet the conflict if it comes. An emergency meeting of the British ministers lasted nearly three hours. It was believed to have reached a united decision on a calm but firm demand that Reichsfuehrer Hitler halt the German campaign of hate against Czechoslovakia, and co-operate, in efforts to reach a settlement of the dangerous Sudeten German issue. The French cabinet, meeting even longer, voted itself virtual power to mobilize French industry far war purposes. English Cabinet Meets LONDON, Eng.-VP)-A bold warning against any German aggression against Czechoslovakia was reported planned by British ministers to check the dangerous trend of European events. . .,„. ..„•... The warning may be directed by Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain to Chancellor Adolf Hitler, who inspected Germany's frontier fortifications facing France Monday. The final decision, however, • rests with the cabinet. It is meeting Tuesday to consider the prime minister's plans for easing the crisis arising from the dispute between Czechoslovakia and her autonomy-demanding Sudeten German minority. Sir Neville Henderson, British ambassador to Berlin, reported to Chamberlain and other ministers today on Germany's attitude and intentions toward Czechoslovagia's miority problem. Sir Neville first saw Sir Robert Van- sittart, diplomatic adviser to the government, and then Lord Halifax, foreign secretary. When Chamberlain returned from the country, there was a conference between the prime minister, foreign secretary, Sir Neville and Sir Robert Informed sources said they considered Hitler held the upper hand in event of a sudden open conflict because of German maneuvers which will begin Thursday and for which an estimated minimum of 1,000,000 men will be under arms. Germany thus will be 10 days ahead of any other country should war break out suddenly. For this reason it was believed that any British cabinet action Tuesday certainly would fall short of threatening Germany with the possibility 'of armed reprisals either in the form of war or support of France if she should feel compelled to assist Czechoslovakia under the French-Czechoslovak mutual assistance pact. By the Associated Press Democratic primary elections in South Carolina and California will measure Tuesday the effectiveness of President Roosevelt's campaign to elect New Dealers to congress. In each of the two sizzling contests for places in the senate, the chief executive has made his preference clear. Without naming names, bul unmistakably, he has asked that the Democrats of South Carolina defeat Senator Ellison D. Smith, opponent of some administration measures. And he has endorsed Senator William G. McAdoo of California for re-election. Smith, a Senate veteran who holds a key position as chairman of the! Agriculture Commissce, is opposed by Gov. Olin D. Johnson, who has proclaimed himself a "100 per cent" New Dealer. Smith has said he voted for SO per cent of administration measures and would continue to back such legislation except when the "best itercsts of South Carolina" required a contrary course. Entering the contest after a third candidate, Edgar A. Brown, had withdrawn, Mr. Roosevelt said of Smith and Johnston: "One of these candidates thinks in terms of the past and governs his actions accordingly. The olhcr thinks in terms of 1938, 1948 and 1958, as well." Slate Senator Brown, who withdrew from the contest Saturday, in- 3 Injured in Fire in Odessa Plant $400,000 Loss as Barnsdall Oil Refinery Blows Up ODESSA, Texas. -(£•)— Three me i were injured critically and a loss rf $400,000 -was incurred in an explosion and fire which destroyed the Barnsdall Oil corporation refinery here Tuesday.
