Friday, September 2,1938 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS PAGE-TH& Tlmnks For (lie Rain The rain fell like a song of hope on fields that had been dying, It was like a mother's loving kiss upon a wistful face. Twll trees that had been parched and dry broke into gentle sighing, Ajid happiness lay like a smile U|X)n the garden place. The house was very snug and sweet, the rain's kind, slender fingers Made magic on the sloping roof and smoothed the stemming pane. We lighted candles slim and white; and, like a dream that linRcrs. They painted paths of drifting light against the silver rain. The house was very sweet and snug— its shadows were caressing— Yet for M moment we were swept with sudden aching pity, for folk who do not understand that rain may be a blessing, Who wander, shelterless and sad, across the rain-swept city. —Selected.

TYRONE ALICE DON POWER-FAYE-AMECHE A 20th Conlury-Fox Picluct At the Rinllo Dramatizing the everyday problems which face the father of an American family, 'You're Only Young Once." comes to the Rjnlto theater Sunday and Monday as a picture every member of the family will enjoy. An intimate discussion of family life, highlighted by comedy and drama, the picture provides a crosssection of the group which makes up the backbone o American life. Lewis Stone, as Judge Hardy, father of Mickey Rooncy and Cecilia Parker, is constantly beset with internal problems arising from his children's proclivity for getting into trouble. It is his duty to rescue them from these difficulties without breaking their spirit or making them rebellious. In living up to his characterization, Stone plays a role reminiscent of those made popular by Will Rogers. His literary counterpart would be "David Hnrum," it is the type of characterization which has lived through generations on the stage and which reached its highest point of perfection in motion pictures. Stone finds himself called 'upon to extricate Mickey Rooncy from an affair with a spoiled and unprincipled heiress whose chief excuse is immaturity. No sooner does he clear his son than Cecilia Parker becomes involved in an affair at CiUalina Island. The young man in the case happened to be already married. Through a clear understanding of his children's problems, the father manages to save them from costly mistakes and at the same time ( 0 prevent their embarrassment. Included in the cast are Fay Holdcn Frank Craven, Ann Rutherford Eleanor Lynn, Ted, Pearson, Sara Hadcn Charles Judels 'and Selmcr Jackson. Weekly Sunday School Lesson By WM. E. GILROY, D. D. Editor of Advance 'IN A LITTLE SPANISH TOWN 1 ly Mabel Wayne, Sim Lewi'i and Joe Young BIRTH OF A SONG From ASCAP By Joseph R. Fli«sl«r and Paul Carrufh o( her Viking ancestors could not confinement, *o little Mabel Wayne used to run away from school every so often — .but the always come bock for music lessons. Like many young girls, she lelt the urge lor the theatre and got a job in the chorus of a Winter Garden revue, Like another actress of Swedish ancestry, Mabel wanted "to be alone" and went into- vaudeville. About this time she also felt that she wanied to write music, and when her vaudeville^our foo'k Jier to southern California she was inspired. The missions, adobe houses and other Spanish-Mexican backgrounds applied to her romantic sense, and she wrott o tf/ng expres- i>* oilier emotions. Returning to New York the young amateur songwriter tried out her tune on veterans Joe Young and Sam Lewis, They collaborated with her. The song was tremendously successful and created a vogue for things Spanish. Mabel followed with "Ramona," "Little Man You've Hod Busy Day" and other hits. Mabel Wayne is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, She is one of the few women composers who write te compete with the Kerns arid Berlin* Samuel: Spiritual Revival Text: I Samuel 7:3-13 In the crisis of the defeat of the Israelites by the Philistines and the carrying away of the Ark of the Covenant with the tragic death of Eli, there comes as the savior of the people the man whose devout mother, Hannah, had dedicated him as a babe to the service of the temple. Samuel .stuck at the very roots of the trouble in Israel. He did not begin by amassing a great army, but he began first of all by attacking the moral condition of the people. He urged them that, with all their hearts, they should put away the foreign gods from them and the base and corrupting forms of idolatrous worship, adn that they should serve the Lord of Israel. The people responded to his appeal, and then it was that Samuel gathered them together and began to marshal them for the victory that they were ultimately to attain. He called all the people together at Mizpah, and there, with the ritual practice of drawing water and pouring it forth on a day of fasting, he confessed the sins of tl^o people. Samuel became, by strength of personality and moral conviction, the judge of Israel. Word of the massing together of the people at Mizpah came to the Philistines, and they came up against the people whom they had conquered. It was a trying time for Samuel. Would his leadership suffice? Could lie inspire the fear-stricken Israelites with the will and the power to resist the Philistines'.' In the presence of the people, Samuel performed a sacrificial rite and atj the same lime prayed earnestly for the deliverance of Israel. There came a great thundering, and the Philistines—fcarstricken and dis- qomfitecl—went down before the aroused people of Israel. New heart and courage took hold of the Israelites, and they pursued the Philistines, whom they had feared so greatly. It was in the hour of this great victory that Samuel took a stone and set it up as a monument between Mizpah and Shen, calling it Ebenczer, signifying that hitherto the Lord had helped the people. The- closing verse of our lesson is very significant. It tells how the Philistines were subdued and came no more within the border of Israel. When one measures against that the defeat of the time of Eli, when the Ark of the Covenant was captured and when Israel was put in a position of fear and bondage, one can appreciate the meaning of this great deliverance. And the lesson is not far to seek. Moral discipline and moral character is the ultimate strength of nations and peoples as it is of individuals. A nation may seem to flourish in greed and corruption and disregard of justice, truth, and right. But the downfall inevitably and surely comes, while just as truly and inevitably righteousness exalts a nation and a people. FIKST METHODIST CHURCH Fred R. Harrison, Pastor The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper will be solemnized at the morning service. The pastor will bring a brief communion message on the subject, "Communion With Christ."

He said $223,300,000 had been spent on new industries in the South the past two years. He then told of the value of a chamber of commerce to a town or city and mcnt and growth. He urged co-opera- its possibilities toward future develop- tion and encouragement for the local organization in order that it may continue to go forward. To Work for Road In a brief interview following his address, Mr. O'Neal told a reporter that the Shreveport chamber of commerce; would do every thing possible in securing pavement of Highway 29 from Hope to the Louisiana line, joining with Highway 10 which is paved from the line into Shreveport. Mayor Albert Graves, who acted as master of ceremonies, touched briefly on the road project and assured the Shreveport organization that Hope would work hand in hand toward obtaining pavement for the road. Attorney Steve Carrigan spoke of the chamber of commerce's effort in the Hempstead county courthouse removal. Mr. Cnrrigan predicted that Hope 'would win the election contest by approximately "500 good and true votes." Mr.'Carrigan said: "I was born in Washington, but moved to Hope when I was eight years old. I hoped the courthouse would follow me. I have been in three campaigns, trying to get the courthouse here. We lost two, but we're going to win this time. "They're contesting the election now and have challenged a great number of votes—but everytimc they challenge, we give them a dose that puts them to sleep. We go out an march in about 50 negro women who cast maiden votes. We do the same thing when they . challenge more voles. We've got this election won—and right here I want to give the boys and girls of Hope credit. They led their band all over the county and gave us much support and encouragement. The young lawyers of Hope also deserve much credit," Mr. Carrigart concluded. George W. Robison spoke briefly and told of the Trades Day event sponsored by the chamber of commerce, lie said the event was a big success and much to increase business each Wednesday in bringing Hope trade to Hope merchants. Aliout Air Mail Postmaster Robert Wilson told of Ail Mail Week and of the chamber of commerce's efforts behind it in making it a success locally. "We mailed 4.48H letters from Hope. They went to all 48 states and 188 foreign countries, bearing a cache telling of Hope's famous watermelons. We had 85 pounds of mail which far exceeded any other pick-up station in Arkansas on Air Mail Day," Mr. Wil-j son said. Mrs. W. G. Allison told of the women's rest room over Briant's drugstore which was. sponsored by the chamber of commerce for the benefit of southwest Arkansas women shoppers. Buford Poe of the U. S. Soil Conservation Service praised chamber of commerce in supporting the soil program and said the chamber was responsible in drawing petitions for forming a soi Iconscrvation area in this district which got good hearings at three towns several days ago. Mr. Poe told of the importance of the district, pointing out that 500,000 acres were subject to erosion in tine Hope trade territory. He said 6,5000 families controlled these areas. Mr. Poe told of the training school conducted here during the spring and which was attended by soil experts from Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas. Lee Garland, president of the Hempstead County Fair Association, praised the chamberof commerce for its efforts in reviving the fair to be held September 20-24. The Taylor quartet was presented in three musical numbers. The meeting closed with a brief speech by B. L. Kaufman who pleaded for co-opcra- tio nand encouragement for the 11 new directors.

ST. I'AUI. \V. M. S. Meeting Ten members and two visitors were present at the meeting of the \V. M S. at St. Paul church Tuesday afterni">n. After the opening hymn. Mis.s Alma Hamui rendered the devotional. Mrs. Floyd Matthews read the church news bulletin. The Bible Study was in charge of Elizabeth Hanna. The subject of the lesson was "Samuel: Spiritual Revival. After the closing hymn, "For You I'm Praying." the benediction was said. other demanding severe punishment for the sake of disciplic. At last a Vjoto is taken, each man stating what, in his opinion the punishment ought to be. If there is disagreement, the debate resumes, until all are won over to a single verdict. Then the prisoner is brought back and told what it is. "You've got to realize that you're in prison here," admonishes the deputy warden. "You can't pick your jol», any more than can a man outside. Lots of people outside would be glad to get a job working in laundries that are hotter and more disagreeable than this one. "You' re in prison. You must learn to do as you're told. If you make good in the laundry, we'll see about the tailor-shop later. You'll go into 'top- lock' until you're ready to go to the laundry and work." Toplock is the Michigan prison's peculiarly effective form of solitary confinement. There are only seven disciplinary cases for the day. Each is taken up with the same meticulous care. One man, evidently a ringleader in the laundry "revolt," is told sternly "You're not going to beat this prison. You'll go into toplock until you're ready to work in the laundry. If you don't make goad there it's back into toplock. You'll make a gooc record or you're never going to leave this prison." Nearly an hour is devoted to one man with a good seven-year record and due for parole, who, as a trusty w;.s given a prison truck to road-test after repairs and failed to return at the lime specified. Instead he and another man bought a bottle of wine, which was found half-empty in the truck when they did return. Pleas for leniency in this case with so long a clean record, and with parole so near, brought this comment from Warden Joel Moore: "Broken faith is one thing wo won't tolerate. We trusted this man, and he broke faith with us. Parole or no parole, he must he dis- csirMined, even though it postpones his parole." System Developed Gradually Warden Moore, who has gradually developed this procedure of classification and discipline, bused on experimental work in federal penitentiaries, is a native Michigadcr. born only 16 miles from the prison he now heads. As u army caplai, he was with the U. S. Siberian Expeditionary Force at Archangel. He .served under Director Sanford Bates of the federal Bureau of Prisons as Superintendent o { Probation and Parole. "How," asks Moore, "are you going to reform a man by just letting him sit in a cage? You must try to find what ih in his mind, so you will know what can be doi.c to help him. Then you can do it." At Southern Michigan prison they are trying. (Tlit- Knd) Czech Fate Still (Continued from Page One) and the lengthening of the 40-hour eek. Germany Rejects Terms BERCHTESGADEN, Gcrmany-(/Pj- Nazi officials reported Thursday night that Konrad Henlein, leader of !zechoslovakia's Germanic minority, had left by plane for home bearing Adolf Hi tier's ; repcction of an important part of Czech peace plans but carrying counter-proposals. Hitler was said to have rejected the part of Premier Milan Hodza's "Plan No. 3" calling for a three-month truce in Czechoslovak-German negotiations to permit passions to cool. Hitler's decision, reached after a long conference with Henlein and highest Nazi officials, was said to be that a more prompt solution of the question was desirable. Conferring with Hitler and Henlein at the dictator's Bavarian mountain retreat were Field Marshal Hermann Wilhelm Goering, Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph Goebbels and Rudolf Hess, deputy Nazi party leader. Britain's ambassador to Germany, Sir Ncvile Henderson, discussed the Czech- German problem with Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop at Son- ncnberg, the latter's country home necar Berlin. Henderson, following conferences with the British cabinet in London, laid before the foreign minister Britain's lates expressions for maintenance of peace. Reliable sources said von Ribben- trop would come to Berchtesgaden Friday for another conference. It was reported Henlein would return for the next meeting after quickly laying Hitler's counter-proposal before Czech officials. Hcnlein's adjutant said the present visit was at the suggestion of Viscount Runeiman, Britain's unofficial mediator in the Central European quarrel. adequate size of the force to audit and collect tax," Governor Bailey said. "I know this to be true because statistical reports from Washington on retail business in Arkansas show. a volume of which ' two per cent would exceed 56,000.000 annually, whereas we now are collecting less than $5,000,000 annually. "There is a need for at least 75 sales tax auditors in this.state." Mr. Bailey said the legislature "unquestionably will have to do something about both situations." Howard Criminal Docket Complete Embezzlement Case Is Transferred to Hempstead County NASHVILLE, Ark.-Circuit Judge Minor Milwee Thursday began hearing the civil cases here after having completed the criminal docket that was marked by the sentencing of three defendants. George Nelson was given three years in prison as he pleaded guilty to charges of burglary and grand larceny. James Taylor, charged with forgery and uttering, entered please of guilty to both counts and was sentenced to two years on each charge. James Newton was given a year in the penitentiary when he pleaded guilty to a charge of false protease. W.. W. Marshall entered a plea of guilty to selling liquor and was fined 550 and costs. Ike Garrison was fined $25 and costs in an assault and battery case. A charge of assault with intent to kill that was pending against Dewey Wesson was reduced to aggravated assault and the defendant lined $50 and costs. The trial of Jim Hooker, charged with riot, was continued. An embezzlement charge pending against F. B. Norton was transferred to Hempstead county for trial. Mexico to Seize (Continued from Page One) "In our reply," he said, "Mexico will say it was grieved to hear, as the Hull note says, that it is opposed to the rights of the people." Shouts of "vivi el presidente! long live our government!" interrupted the speech. If there is to be Pan-Americanism in reality. Cardenas declared, it must be understood that "foreigners cannot aspire to special treatment in detriment to the natives of a country." He declared expropriation of the oil companies was forced by their "rebellious attitude" and "pressure on the government to obtain special priv- leges." There rights to concessions thus were "invalidated," Cardenas asserted, and the government, therefore, "docs not feel obligated to pay them anything jut the bare amount of their investments, less depreciation. More Auditing Is Required for Tax Governor Bailey Would Hire More Auditors— Sales Tax Is Down LITTLE ROCK.—Taking cognizance of declining revenues from Arkansas's 26 special tax sources, Governor Bailey indicated Thursday that he would ask the 1939 legislature to authorize increasing the number of sales tax auditor-collectors from 40 to 75 and to amend the state's export liquor tax law to restore liquor tax revenue. "The decline in liquor tax collections is due to a large extent to the export tax," Mr. Bailey told a press-conference. "I was opposed to the export liquor tax when it was proposed at the March special session of the legislature, but it was written into the sanatoria expansion program bill by a senate amendment and I was faced with the proposition of accepting the export tax provision or vetoing the entire bill. "There isn't the slightest doubt in my mind that advantage has been taken of the export tax." The export tax of 60 cents a case is applicable on liquor for shipment out of Arkansas into "wet" states, under provisions of the law. Sponsors of the measure admitted its success as a revenue producer depended largely upon payment of the tax on liquor "boot legged" into "dry" Tennessee and Ok alhoma. Rapid decline in revenues from the regular liquor tax, which was increased from 51.05 to $2.40 a gallon at the special session, was taken to indicate that much liquor is being consumed in Arkansas on which the 60-ccnt tax instead of the $2.40 tax had been paid Reports of the State Revenue Department this year ave shown a consistent month by month decrease in sales lux revenue in comparison with corresponding months in 1937. This has been attributed partly to the busi ness recession and partly to an insuffi cient number of auditor-collectors. "The tragedy of it is that the public is paying the sales tax but the slate is not getting all of it because of in- In Europe, charcoal biscuits are popular.
