Full Mnnli I've watched the moon rise full above n lake Arid reach, I've thought, nt last its utmost best.

New Sea Queen Hearing "Coronatiort" Prescott Defeats Amity in Opener | Curly Wolves Overwhelm Rams in First Game, -' 34 to 0 PRESCOTT, Ark.-Wilh a mere seven-day practice period behind them, Coach O. H. Storey's Prescott high school Curley Wolves raised the curtain on the 1938 Arknnsas football calendar hero Friday night with n decisive 34 to 0 route bf the Amity Rams in a game played at the newly erected Cummings athletic field before n large crowd of'-Prescott spectators. The Wolves, by virture of their "lop.- sided win over the Rums, started local gridiron fans thinking in terms of the days several years back when the Curly Wolves of Prescotl were considered the scourge of Southwest Arkansas fogtball teams. As far as the offensive part of the Wolves' play Friday night was concerned, the honors went to Williamson, who scored three touchdowns and accounted for a pair of extra points. Halsell tallied a pair of six pointers and Grip accounted for two extra points. According to statistics, the local team registered seven first downs to one for the visitors. In the number of yards gained from scrimmage, the Prescott team was far-out in front. The Wolves accounted for a total of 385 yards gained while the Amity team was gaining only 17 yards. , . arffft • , «i gh n ver he r cradle in the great Clydebank, Scotland, WM'r t t Ql A e f, n El' z « abeth .' n ? west Addition to the .Cunard- White Star trans-Atlantic fleet, is almost .ready for launching Her namesake, Queen Elizabeth of England, will put her to commit MOB on September 27th. The 85,000-ton liner is expected to be faster than the Queen Mary or the Normandie. At the New Proving again the versatility of Wil- iiim Powell and Luise Rainer, the new 'ilm at the New Theater Sunday and Monday, "The Emperor's Candle- ticks," presents these stars in roles of arresting interest. Powell, the hero of many a suave comedy, best known for his creation of "The Thin Man" series in the Dashiell Hammett stories, now becomes a gay continental spy and genlleman- about-Europe. Luise Rainer, the Academy Award winner of 1936 for her role as Anna Held in "The Great Ziegfeld" and more recently hailed for her characterization of the Chinese slave- wife in "The Good Earth," is a vivacious and exotic woman of title and intrigue. The very contrast of their new roles against those in which the public has become accustomed to seeing them, is conclusive proof of their artistry. Audiences have been enthusiastic in its praise of the picture as a whole and was particularly impressed by the stars. The Metro-Goldwyn-Maycr studio has done what could have been predicted in advance in providing magnificent background for a story of moving action and lavish beauty. The scenes move from Vienna to Warsaw, into Paris, London and Russia,'with the speed of a transcontinental express. The story, from the novel by Baroness Ore/y, describes the mad adventures of two exceedingly attractive secret agents, each of whom is suspicious of the other. Danger lies always in their paths and death is never far away, but love sweeps aside these obstacles as love has a way of doing, and they make life very amusing. Powell and Miss Hainer are masters of restraint. The Viennese star who has been in America only two years, is thoroughly at home in the Continental atmosphere of the picture, and Powell, the Cosmopolitan always, is delightfully nonchalant wherever destiny lakes him. The distinguished supporting cast features Robt. Young, Maureen O'Sullivan, Frank Morgan and Henry Sle- phenson, all of whom contribute excellent performances. Also deserving of mention in a large cast are Berna- dcne Hayes, Donald Kirke, Douglas Dumbrille, Charles Waldron, len Wulf and Barnett Parker. John Conskline, Jr., who produced "Broadway Melody of 1937" and other notable screen triumphs, held the reins in this production, and George Filz- maurice was the director. Goering Beats the (Continued from Page One) declared that four mine-laying destroyers be brought to full commission for a reserve status. Although the British home fleet is engaged in maneuvers in the North sea off Scotland, this move was the Adi- mil-ally's first admission of precautions because of the central European crisis. Indians Take to Trail . . . ers DBS MOJNES, Iowa.—(/P)—Even the Hopi Indians, who are regarded as being quite fur removed from presenl- duy civilization, have gone modern. They traveled to the Iowa state fair in up-to-date auto trailers. Some clouds are 10 miles thick.

Itadio Response Terrific Poetry clinched it. Struck one day on a train journey by the beaty of the countryside of his adopted stale. O'Daiiiel set pencil to paper and wrote the words and music of "Beautiful Texas." Like this: "To beautiful, beautiful Texas, "Where the beautiful bluebon- nels grow . . . "To beautiful, beautiful Texas, "The most beautiful place that I know." The response was terrific, and still is. O'Daniel, having found his forte, wrote flour orders with one hand, while turning out with the other such songs as "Your Own Sweet Darling Wife," "Put Me in Your Pockel," "That City for Shut-ins," and "On to Victory, Mr. Roosevelt." Radio listeners loved them. Gradually as O'Daniel became more and more familiar to a larger radio audience, he became also friend and philosopher. Builds Fort Worth In 1933 the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce chose O'Daniel as its president. The year marked the botlom of the depression, but at' its end, O'Daniel was able to chalk up 488 new business enterprises, including 39 manufacturing plants for his town. He helped get a ?4,250,000 Public Health hospftal for the town by obtaining a gift of 1402 acres of land for a site. He helped put over the 53.000,000 bond issue on which the present educational system of the town is based. He named the first local NRA committee. In short, he did more for his city as head of the Chamber of Commerce than many a mayor is able to accomplish f6r his community in several terms. O'Daniel prospered personally as well. He bought and built up a 300- acre ranch 20 miles out from Fort Worth. In 1935 he cut loose from his flour connections and organized his own distributing firm. His flour sacks bore one of his poems descriptive of his product: ."It tickles your feet, it tickles your tongue, "Wherever you go its praises are sung ..." - "PLEASE PASS THE BISCUITS, PAPPY!" NEXT: Biscuits and ballots join hands to crease a new national political figure. Roosevelt Urges (Continued from Page One) tax in Arkansas expressed gratification at the president's statements on the poll tax. "President Roosevelt's expressions on the poll tax has given us much encouragement in our fight to repeal the poll tax," Mr. Prewitl saiA "We will redouble our efforts to see thai Ihe proposed constitutional amendment carries by a substantial majority in November," Parrish Retires R. W. (Bob) Parrish of Lake Village, recently named director of the Taxpayers Committee to oppose the proposed constitutional amendment abolishing poll taxes, announced he would be unable to take an acUve part in the campaign. Mr. Parrish said ill health would prevent him from participating actively in the campaign but that he would continue to oppose the measure. Strasbourgh Calm (Continued from Page One) fying a line extending from Basel, the Swiss city, clear long the French, Luxemburg and Belgian frontiers, just as in the East they are doing the same thing with a line along the Polish frontier and partly along the Czech frontier. Only the most feverish and extensive work is being done in the West For Ihis purpose, nol only are the engineering corps of the Reichs- webjj and young men from the Labor corps being employed, but also what is virtually slave labor, cosling the state nothing. This slave labor is labor of the unfortunate political prisoners brought from the concentration camps and jails. That is why the Germans boast their line of fortifications will cost less than the French, Line Less Rigid Also they are not making their line as rigid as the Maguiot Line.

NEW TOM KEENE —in-. "ROMANCE OP THE ROCKIES". ALSO if •I i: y * i defensive lines extend anywhere from 1 JO to 50 miles inwards from the frontier. There are barbed wire meshes, tank traps, trenches,'concrete machine gun nests and pill-boxes both for direct and for flanking fire, underground structures for storage of food and ammunition, concrete concealed heavy artillery emplacements. High board fences and other methods of concealment are being employed to hide from prying eyes on the other side of the frontier what is being done. Foreign military officers and foreign visitors are warned off. Here in Strasbourg 'there is no special nervousness. The people know that in case of war, their beautiful city •would probably soon be a target for German guns and German bombers. But they also know it would not be a one-sided affair. They confidently tell you there are big guns in their maginot line which could drop shells into Baden, Freiburg, Karlsruhe and other German cities. And ^every afternoon while I was there, Strasbourg- ers heard the comforting drone of anywhere from 12 to 48 big French bombers' taking the air on their side of the Rhine.

Other workmen were severely injured and the half-ton door to the safe was blown in two and tossed 15 feet. Movie Scrapbook Republican Gets AFL Endorsement Senator Davis Favored Over Earle in Pennsylvania Race WASH1NGTON.-OP)—Senator James J. Davis, Pennsylvania Republican, received unqualified endorsement of the American Federation of Labor Friday in his campaign for re-election. President William Green' wrote the Pittsburgh Labor Council that because Davis' record on labor legislation was "100 per cent" the federation "most heartily" endorsed his candidacy. Davis will be opposed in the November election by Gov. George H. Earle, who won the Democratic nomination over Mayor S. Davis Wilson of Philadelphia. In the primary campaigns, the A. F. of L. endorsed both Republican Davis and Democratic Governor Earle. Mayor Wilson,'Earle's primary opponent, was supported by John L. Lewis' Committee for Industrial Organization. The C. I. O. has not disclosed the candidates it will support in November. Ah associate of Lewis recalled Friday, however, that Senator Davis long had been a member of the Amal- gamaled Association of Iron, Steel and Tin Workers, now a C. I. O. affiliate. Green wrote Leo Abernathy, president of the Pittsburgh Labor Council, that a 15 per cent cut for their 929.000 tion the A. F. of L. had endorsed.
