Mrs. Madison Ingram oDC>v>d the meeting with prayer. Mrs. C'H'ten Yancey conducted a .short, business session. Mrs. Jack Cooper, Mrs. Leroy included in two volumes telling of general Nazi foreign policy prior to the outbreak of war in September 1930. This may be clue to a desire to avoid further disturbing their touchy relations with'Russia. Moscow bitterly denounced the State Department, early this year after it published part of the' record of Soviet-German negotiations as revealed in the Nazi documents. A government, official workin." on the project said, however, ilv; two new volume;; being edited now will contain "twice as much detail' 'on this subject as the earlier Stale Department volume which ran ;«>2 pages. This fact alone may provoke a new outburst from Moscow. Official German documents will be published intact to show step- by-step the secret intrigues which led to the 1915!) Russian-Gorman non-aggression pact which doomed Poland. The papers then will trace in detail the growing distruet between the two countries resulting f'nini their .failure to agree on "spheres 'of ml'luenee" lii.spite lengthy negotiation. One point that stands out, this j official said, is that Hitler and the Nr'Zi foreign office hail no spies in Russia—unlike the situation" else- j where—and were forced to rely (entirely upon (heir embassy iii 1 Moscow for information.

It was understood ' that Mmc. Chiang decided to visit the United States at the invitation of certain American organizations. It will mark the second time that she has appeared personally before American audiences to ask for aid to China. During the war, she made a ferics of cross-country speeches to tell Americans of the Chinese fig.ht against Japan. Since then, she has been in the background politically. Recently, however, she made an overseas broadcast asking for American help to check the Communists. It was then she disclosed she had been invited to visit America. The Communist troops on the Suhsien battlefront, 45 miles south of Suchow, were under the command of the "one-eyed drcgon " Gen. Liu Po-chen. In addition to these troops, four of Communist Gen. Chen Yi's columns wore racing under heavy air attacks from the Nienchuang area to Linpi. Some of his units were only 20 miles away. The official government central news agnecy admitted it erred in reporting the recapture of Suhsien from the Communists yesterday. That presumably meant the Nationalists still were attacking from the suburbs. The nationalists claimed they now controlled the railway from Suchow to Nienchuang.

Arkansas State Patrolman Joe Cosner identified the driver of the lumber truck as O. J. Barker, 59, Rector, Ark., lumber company owner. The school bus was driven by Leon Hatcher, 24. Neither driver was injured. Cosner said the lumber truck sideswiped the school bus as the two vehicles were crossing a narrow bridge about seven miles north of here. The bus was taking about 30 children to Halliday from a school at Marmaduke, Ark. Dr. Elbert K. Fretwell The highlight of the annual meeting of tho Caddo Area Council.

Unusual Incidents Thanksgiving New York, Nov. 2G(UP)<—Most Americans throughout the world gave thanks on Thanksgiving, but some just had trouble. For instance, in Los Angeles, the dietician at Georgia Street receiving hospital had a call from a frantic woman who said she was afraid to serve the chestnut dressing because the nuts were hard as rocks Everything became clear when the dietician explained she should shell them. The prisoners at two jails in New Jersey didn't receive turkey, but for two different reasons. At Camden. 90 lawbreakers in the county jail ate ham because a thief had stolen the five 20-pound turkeys ordered for their meal. And at Elizabeth, the 122 inmates of the Union County jail were fed meat loaf because turkey prices were too high for the prison budget. On New York's Bowery, 3,000 down-and-outers were given a free turkey dinner at Sammey's Bowery Follies. And three of the hardluck group were chosen for a comeback try, with a new outfit of clothes, $15 a week expense money and I some help to find a job. Mrs. |Gladys Layton, 42, one of those chosen, said she had been sleeping in subway stations since last Jan. 28. The holiday was a bitter one for two persons at opposite sides of the nation. Mrs. Frances C. Rarer, 33, Long Beach, Calif., had no one to eat Thanksgiving dinner with, police said, so she sat down and ate rat poison, killing herself. And in New York, Joseph Keller, 33, a disabled war veteran, turned The mule deer is the largest found in the United States. on the gas jets and killed himself. He left a note to his wife, explaining he was sorry to ruin Inn- Thanksgiving and for her to take care of their child. His wife. Helen, explained he hadn't been able to find a job because of his war wounds. Across the Atlantic, the Amari-' ^ can pilots on the Berlin airlift ate their Thanksgiving turkey on the run. Clear skfes helped them bring a near record of 0,116 tons of supplies into the beleaguered city. Mo bile canteens served hot turkey to the fliers on the runways. While in Naples, Italy, some 250 ragged Neapolitan children ate their first American Thanksgiving turkey aboard U. S. warships anchored in the harbor. The U. S. Army set up a similar treat for 1,400 orphan children in Trieste. ' Back in this country, Stanley J. Miller, of Betnelehcm. Pa., planned a big venison dinner for his 3G relatives. But they had to settle for pot luck. And it cost Miller SI00 besides, when a game warden found a deer shot out of season in his automobile. Patients at tho Hamburg hospital were thankful, though, since tho deer was donated to them. COLD STUFFED One whiff < feeling. Al- K ways carry it with you.

Cosner said the side of the vehicle was "caved in" by the crash. The top of the vehicle fell on the children, he reported. All of the injured were brought to Dixon-Memorial Hospital here where nine physicians aided in treating the children.
