Police announced they had recovered 1 about $100 in loot taken in the scries ' of robberies. The negro youth was arrested at a local theater at 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon and after questioning confessed to the robberies, police an- j nounced. The Robbery Victims Police listed the robberies as: Claude Houston's store and home, three radios, one electric razor, one electric fan. All recovered. T. C.

Negro Spent Cash Police said that no cash was recovered, but that they were holding several pieces of new clothing that the negro recently purchased by paying cash. The radios, watches and other articles taken in the robberies were located by police and returned to their original owners. Police said they had questioned the negro several times the past six months but were unable to link him with any of the local robberies until he con- .fcssed late Thursday afternoon. Policemen Hugh Bcardcn and Williams Robins assisted by Tom Miel- dlebrooks were active in the investigation. The negro will be given a hearing Monday morning in munic- pal court. Officers said they attempted to link others with the series of robberies, but said the negro stuck to his original .story Ihat he operated alone and that no other persons were involved.

Assistant Coach Brasher said: "I think maybe Foy's singing "The Haynesville Blues'." Brasher, former Bauxite coach, wont on lo say he was glad lo live in Hope, and had been wanting to move here for more than a year. He said Hope has good football material, "and if hard work will bring it out, then it will be brought out." Roy Anderson, athletic business manager for the Hope Board of Education, explained that raising the price of conference games this year to 75 cents was in line with the same price charged last year by other conference teams when playing conference opponents. "We arc under tremendous expense during conference games," he said, explaining that with a $450 guarantee to Blylhcvillc, the total expense of the game when that team appears here will be close to $700. "It would take 1,400 persons at 50 cents to break even," he said, "and we are obliged therefore to charge 75 cents for a conference game, playing the caliber of foolball we arc attempting to play." Mr. Andrson pointed out that with four home conference games and two non-conference games, total individual admissions for the season would be $4, but season tickets arc being sold ul $3; .React ved •• aea«» arid boxes are also still available, he said. Rest rooms have been added to the stadium plant this season, with other improvements, notably in the lighting of the parkinig grounds around the stadium, and in the construction of a new scoreboard.

The Haynesville Golden Tornado is Louisiana's No. 2 football team, second only to Shrcveport Byrd High. In the last six years Haynesville has been in two state championship playoffs, and has lost a total of only eight games in seven years. In 1936-37 they ran up a string of 18 straight victories, being broken finally by Shrcveport Byrd High. Haynesville has beaten such Arkansas teams as Pine Bluff, El Dorado and Camdcn—and Coach Hammons said Friday noon: "If our strategy works we may win. and if it doesn't we won't. Luck will have a lot to do with it." HOT SPRINGS, Ark.-(/P)-Govornor Carl E. Bailey told the Democratic stole convention here Friday that the "most important present problem for the consideration of the responsible leadership of the stale continues to be the refunding of our slate highway indebtedness." "I am convinced," he said, "it will not be possible for us to refund our debt until we can give our creditors and potential creditors constitutional assurances in relation to payment of our obligations." The chief executive said: "The maturities of this debt arc so arranged Ihat default is inevitable not, later than 1949—and that default will occur on road improvement district refunding bonds, thus again imperiling the homes, farms and businesses of those wilhin the old road improvement districts in 62 of the 75 counties.". The convention adopted a platform advocating a constitutional amendment to effect the refunding of the highway indebtedness. W. S.

State Policeman S. R. Copeland, Ed V:m Sickle of the Stale Revenue Department, and Sheriff Clarence Dildy of Howard county co-operated in solving the case, announcing Friday that the Houston negroes had made a confession. Officers charged that the Houstons and two other negroes cheated Buddy Hill, Nashville negro, out of his money by pretending to find a pocketbook containing a large sum in cash. Hill was then persuaded to put up his own money as "evidence of good faith" while the others went to "make change" in order to divide the 'loot." George's Victory Is Overwhelming Senator Gets 246 County Unit Votes, 40 More Than Necessary . ATLANTA, Ga. — (/I 1 ) — President Roosevelt's campaign for political execution of lawmakers he deems out of step with the New Deal received it-s third successive setback Thursday with re-nomination of Senator Walter F. George in the Georgia Democratic primary. Unofficial but complete returns from all, but two of Georgia's 159 counties gave the man Mr. Roosevelt termed "dycd-in-the-wood conservative" 141,742 popular votes and 24G county unit votes—40 more than the majority needed to send him back to the senate.

Each side, government and insurgent, looked for omens of strife which might have an effect on the two-year-old conflict in Spain. Reports here said Ihe insurgents were concerned lest an outbreak if Central European warfare result in withdrawal of their German and Italian support. Government sources said the Barcelona regime would gain by a concerted withdrawal of foreign aid trpm both sides. There were reports along the French-Spanish border that Insurgent General Franco had withdrawn German planes and pilots from Northern frontier bases as a gesture of neutrality toward France and a precu- tion against the bombing of French towns or other objectives which might draw down French wrath on Franco.

Czechoslovakia.—l/l')—The Czechoslovakia government Thursday night ordered the arrest of Konrad Hcnlcin on a charge of treason after the Sudeten German chieftain broadcast a proclamation that his followers wanted union with Germany. The government, moving swiftly to put down civil war in Sudeten German territory, also ssucd an order extending martial law to 16 Sudtcn districts where sporadic, minor disorders continued. This turn of events, apparently ending all present possibility of settling the Czechoslovak-Sudeten dispute, preceded by a few hours announcement that the British mediation mission was returning to London to confer with the British government on the grave crisis. A brief statement announced that Viscount Runciman, head of the "unofficial" British mission, and his principal aide, F. T. A. Ashton-Gwatkin, slovnkVSudetcn dispuite virtually had reached the vanishing point. iMany.Flce Sudeten Area < Henlein, the "little fuehrer" of the Sudeten Germany minority, could not be found at his home at Asch, near the German border, where he was reported to have gone to Munich. His wife and two daughters also had disappeared. Hail Henlein been caught and convicted on the treason chaw, hi> would have faced a possible scn- tence of life imprisonment. Three thousand persons who fled Sudtcnlnnd arrived here Thursday. Other groups wore reported crossing the frontier into Germany. The Red Cross hclijed many of those here find temporary refuge in public buildings. Czech Cabinet Acts The cabinet for several hours studied Henlcin's proclamation, in which hi 1 told "this civilized world" that the Su- dctcii Germans "want to return to then home in the Reich." Then the cabinet decided firmly to submit the evidence to the public prosecutor with directions to bring action against Henlein. Henlein's proclamation had boon issued nt EKCI-, Sudeten Germany city within three miles of the German border, and was first presented to the German official news agency and then Poland's "Corridor to Sea" Long a Sore Spot for Germany MILTON BRONNER NBA Service Staff Correspondent LONDON—If Adolf Hitler, by war or plebiscite, acquires the Sudeten German regions of Czechoslovakia, the first great, crucial step will have been taken in the Nazi dream of annexing all lands bordering the Reich where Germans dwell. .The Nazi propaganda department long ago put forth the claim that wherever there are Germans, they must belong to the Reich and must acknowledge Hitler as their Fuehrer. They long ago published maps showing the territory contiguous to the Rteich that some day must be made German. If Czechoslovakia is thrown to Germany, this will, instead of bringing 'peace to Europe, be the first chapter in a long story of crises. For what might work in Czechoslovakia, the Nazis would attempt elsewhere. The Sudeten German case is an exact laboratory case. Before the Nazi advent to power, the Sudeten Germans outwardly were content. There were no wails about misrteat- ment. With the coming of the Nazis, all was changed, Nazi agents organized the Sudeten Germans, Nazis money paid for halls, speechmakers, literature. Every incident in which Czech quarreled with a Sudeten became an international political issue. As a matter of fact no German inside Germany enjoys the liberty which the Sudetens enjoy. The Czech 'op- prehsors" have allowed them freedom of speech, of assembly, of press. They have had their own parties, their own German language newspapers. They have elected their own deputies to the national Parliament and freely attack the government or the day in speeches. Fear New Campaigns If Sudeten German territory is lost by Czechoslovakia, it is almost certain that new campaigns will at once begin. For instance, by plebiscite after the war, the people of North Scheswig voted to return to Denmark, -from •which their territory was taken by force when Prussia made bitter war on the little countr yin 1864. Ever since the Nazis came to power, they have been planting Nazis in North S'chlcswig by the simple method of buying up farms at fancy prices. They have bombarded the people with radio propaganda. They are laying the groundwork for a claim that North Schleswig is German and should be returned to the Reich. Small Bits Next on the list would be Eupen with 400 .square miles and 40,000 people, and Malmedy with 318 square miles and 37,000 people. The peace treaties added these small bits of territory to Belgium. Here too, Naz propaganda has been busy. The territory would bring Germany much nearer to Liege and Namur and other important fortified Belgian towns and so have a strategical value. To the cast lies the little, .nominal republic of Lithuania. After the war, the allied powers gave to Lithuania the former German seaport town of Mc- mcl and its immediate hinterland, in all some 300 square miles with 50,000 people. Every time Lithuania punishes some Nazi agitator, the German press starts a thumping campaign. Salute of Poland But the European tour is not yet complete. When the independent state Together with areas around Eupen and Malmedy In Belgium, the shaded areas on ttic map above show territory lost by Germany in the World War which Nazis drenm of returning to the Reich. If Germany regained them, France would lose Alsace-Lorraine, Denmark, the North Schleswig area and Lithuania th«; important seaport district around Mcntel. - The Polish Corridor would once more be the German provinces of Pomerania and Posen. and Poland would also lose the rich mining section of Upper Silesia. , Hitler Requires Sudeten Area, and Voice Over Czechs Czech Foreign Policy Must Be in Harmony With Germany's M U NITION CONTROL Chamberlain Returns Home, But Likely to .

Charles Hiessen, of Blevins, District Young People's Director, made a report of the Conference Council of Young People held recently in Little Rock. Syvelc Burke, of Hope, was elected president of the union for the coming year. A period of recreation was held following the program and business. Refreshments were .served by a committee headed by Miss Martha Houston. The October meeting of the union will be held at Blevins. LITTLE ROCK — Revenue deparl- officials were writhing in the throes of creation Thursday preparatory to beginning manufacture of the new 1939 Arkansas license plates next week. Gathered in the office of Frank D. Clancey, Motor Vehicle Division supervisor, they fingered, started at, handled and brooded mightily over a vast array of plates conceived by officials throughout the nation. The fact that Mr. Chancey—acting upon the suggestion of Governor Bailey—had decided upon a design and minor details incident to the new plates, appeared to deter them no whit in their suggestions and critcisms. A reporter, after listening to the would-be artists in metals for half an hour, concluded the state's new tags will be somewhat as follows: They .will be of aluminum, natural color, about 12Vi inches long by 6Vi inches wide. The numerals will be larger, more dislinct and betler marked—in black "numeral ink"—than those on the 1938 plates. The numerals will be of the "block" type. There will be no replica of the state's outline on the plate, the only markings being the large digits with "1939" stamped vertically in the center of the plate, and the word "Arkansas" across the top. Mr. Clancey said his office had been checking alloys of the metal and exterior treatment in an effort to reduce glare resulting from reflected light. The department has about concluded, he confided, there is less glare to the raw, untreated metal. The plates will be made at the penitentiary. The shortest distance across the entire Umted States lies between San Diego, Calif., and Charleston, S.C., 2152 miles. The fastest creature that lives is a small fly that looks like a honey-bee. It is a sctnt half inch long and is estimated by scientists to attain a speed of 800 miles an hour. It is the ccphcn- cmyia, a species of botfly. nomic system, at least to the extent that Czechoslovakia did not hinder the realization-of German economic aims. Germany-; for-instance; -must have a' decisive word to say ;on the output of the great Skoda munitions works at Pilsen, and the destination of'this output, the source said. Chamberlain Returns BERCHTESGADEN, Germany— (JP)-~ Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain of •reat Britain left for home Friday without having obtained the guarantee of peace which he came here to seek from Chancellor Adolf Hitler. The way was paved, however, for further conversations between the two, possibly next Tuesday at Godesberg, near Cologne, Germany. To the extent that the parley- is scheduled to continue, the situation was regarded as hopeful,, if riot particularly bright No great enthusiasm was expressed or was in evidence in circles close to Hitler and Chamberlain. Outlook Is Gloomy BERLIN, Germany—(#•)—Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's decision to return Friday to London surprised the German Foreign Office and raised doubts there that he would come back. Officials feared his decision might mean that the British prime minister and Hitler soon recognized they could not see eye to eye on the Sudeten minority question at their Berches- gaden conference. Foreign Office authorities who talked with officials at Berchtesgaden were under the impression that Chamberlain came armed with nothing more than Britain's and France's readiness to support a plebiscite in the Sudeten region of Czechoslovakia under international control. But in German eyes the plebiscite is superceded by Konrad Henlen's proclamation demanding secession of the Sudeten areas. Hence to Germany, the only question remaining is whether Britain and France would stand asida if and when Germany comes to the Sudeten minority's aid "to restore order." Some Nazi spokesmen admitted that if Chamberlain had not decided to come to Germany Nazi troops would have marched across the Czechoslovak border Thursday. This they said need surprise no one, for Hitler's closing speech at Nurnberg Monday made it perfectly clear he would not stand for further harm to come to the Germanic minority in Czechoslovakia. These sources said they considered virtual civil war to exist in the Su- deten regions giving Hitler reason to make good his threat. Hcnlin Jii Germany A high Sudeten German leader Thursday night disclosed that Henlein, fuehrer of the Sudeten minority, had readied Germany safely from Czechoslovakia where his arrest was ordered on treason charges. The Sudeten leader in Berlin, reporting Henlein was safe, declared that "Czechs like (late President A Thought Never trust anybody not of sound rclgiion, for he that is false to God can never be true to man.—Lord Bvvrleigh.
