Germany, believed to have demanded annexation of Czechoslovakia's Sudeten arca < reportedly notified Jewish physicians whose licenses had been revoked which unit they must report to in case of war—a new indication of the urgency with which the Nazis regard the present crisis. The French government's support of Czechoslovakia was said to be stiffening. Czechoslovakia itself took precautions against possible disorders stemming from the liquidation of the Sudeten party as Ernest Kundl, deputy party lender, urged his followers to wail the outcome of British-German negotiations.

VOLUME 39—NUMBER 293 HOPE, ARKANSAS, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17,1938 PRICE 5c COPY Czccks Oppose Vote PRAGUE.-(/P)-A Czechoslovak cabinet member Friday night warned that Czechoslovakia would not agree to any plebiscite to determine what shall be done with the republic's Sudcntcn German minority. The statement was made by Minister of Railways Rudolf Bcchync, who declared "a plebiscite would be a short cut to war." Bechync on past occasions has acted as premier in the absence of Premier Milan Hodza. His decision officially gave notice that Czechoslovakia would not permit dismemberment of her terrilory, de- spile any agreement for settlement of the Czechoslovak-'Sudeten dispute which might be reached by other European powers, such as England and Germany. Talk of a plebiscite to settle the Su- deten minority issue was spurred after Hitler at Nurnbcrg demanded "self- determination" for neighboring Germans talk thai increased after Prime Minister Chamberlain's sudden visit to Hitler. Bcchyne's statement, given in a The reduclion was nllribuled to a sharp decline in public welfare fund revenues which arc derived from 25 per cent of Ihc sales tax, and from taxes on domestic and imported wines and wine permits, pool tables, horse and greyhound racing, slot machines and advertising awards. Miss Haynie said salaries of |>er- .sonncl in the county public welfare department "arc so inadequate" no plan has been made to reduce them but that il would be necessary lo reduce salaries in the slate deportment as well as administrative costs. The new state quota for the aged, dependent children and the blind will be 22_794. A total of 22,931 persons received old age assistance benefits, aid to dependent children and aid lo the blind as of August 20. Before that the quota for the state was 25,335. Average payments lo old age assistance cases amount to $8.99 per case at present while aid lo dependcnl children is $10.65 per case and aid lo blind is $9.13 per case. 50 I'cr Cent Decrease "There has been a sharp decline in thp sales tax, and also, due to the Icg- islalion enacted by the extraordinary session of the General Assembly of 1938, the public welfare fund was deprived of a large percentage of revenue from the liquor tax." Miss Moynic said. "In order that you may know the cxlcnl of Ihc decrease in revenue, Ihere was a decline of 50 per cent in rcceipls lo the public welfare fund in May, 1938, as compared with May, 1937. "Monthly, it has been expected thai Uiere would be an increase in Ihc revenue, but this has not materialized, therefore, it is necessary that a reduc- lion bo made in the cxpendilure for paymcnl of public assislancc and general relief grants, as well as a reduc- lion in Ihe adminislrativc cosls in order that tlie expenditures will conform with the available revenue. "In view of this economic situation, it is necessary to reduce the number of recipients and the amount of the grant to each recipient. It will bo necessary for all county quotas to be reduced 10 per cent. "If the case load in the county is greater than the quota no new or reopened cases will be added until the case load has been reduced lo conform with the quota. U will be permissible, however to reinstate Irans- fcrrcd and other suspended cases even when the county is above its quota. Impossible to Determine "Inasmuch as U will be impossible at this date to determine the revenue thai will be available to make the payments for administralivc cosls and payments lo recipients for the October pay roll, I am not in a position to advise you at this time the amount of reduction thai will be necessary.

Wouldn't Stand for Vote "A plebiscite would be a short cut to war, Inasmuch as if there were a plebiscite, no government would exist in FVaguc," he said. "And any Czechoslovak government which would permit a plebiscite to lake place would fall immediately because it would awaken opposition of a determined people which would rather die than permit its homeland to be dismembered. "In addition, a plebiscite would not alter tilings; if nothing worse happened it would mean that millions of Germans living in the plebiscite district would be obliged to move inlo the interior of the Czechoslovak republic. Then we would have a new minorities problem and the basis for a new pretense to bring pressure on Czechoslovakia which would lead to destruction of their land. "In this country there will be no plebiscite and no international police. We have established order and we also maintain it. U is well lo sec that we arc in a position to carry out our pror- gram for the trcatmenl of all nation- alises of our republic with complete justice." Refuses to Go Easy The government's firm steps against the Sudeten organizations were taken despite thai several foreign legations ity Ihcrc will be a delay in Ihe issuance of Ihe checks! As soon as I am able to secure Ihis informalion, I will advise you. Also, there will be mailed with each recipient's assistance check a Ictler of explanation as to why tlie reduction is being made. "Due to the fact thai the salaries of the personnel in the county public welfare departments, which were appropriated by the legislature, are so inadequate, no plan has been made for it rcduclion; however, if il is al all possible, I would appreciate your limiting the administrative expenses of your offices, particularly with reference to mileage, stamps, etc. In the offices of the slate department, however, it will be necessary to reduce salaries and to reduce to a minimum all administrative costs." .- Of the 16 all but two arc from oul of lown.

Williams, director of the college, from the union's executive council. Executive Secretary H. L.

Each team scored 18 first downs. Odell and Bourne played best in the line for Smackover, while McGuire and Taylor stood out in the Camden line. Clarksville Wins Easily CLARKEV1LLE — Clarksville High Panthers defeated Ozark, 44 to 0, here Friday night, scoring two touchdowns in the first period, being held scoreless in the second and rallying in the last half to score 31 points. Fullback Frank Delmonego scored tlie first touchdown from the five-yard line aflci 1 he and Bock had taken the ball from Iheir own 48.

Jewell of Hope was among the 11 top- ranking freshmen at the University of Arkansas in the 1938 American Council on Education psychological examination. He ranked fourth in the class. Dark-shaded on the map above in its menace to European peace, is the fringe on the north,'west, and south borders of Czechoslovakia. In thai area Ihc populalion is largely of German blood. II is in this darkened region that a plebiscite is being sought. Czech consent is asked by peacemakers to a proposal that if the people of these areas vote to detach themselves from the rest of the country and join the ' German-Austrian : iJwples, that-they be 1 allowed to do so peacefully." This plan is complicated by the fact that there are patchy areas far in the interior of Czechoslovakia which also arc largely German. Taking their name from the Sudetic Mountains of the north border, these "Sudeten Germans" are the minority problem, failure to solve which will almost surely involve Europe in war. The map itself shows this racial conflict, for notice that the names on it are Czech names, yet almost every town has also a German name: Eger, where conflict between Sudetens and Czech authorities has already taken place, is shown as Cheb above. Aussig, another turbulent area, is shown as Usti. Pilscn is Plzcn, Prague is Praha, Karlsbad is Karlovy Vary, Marienbad is Marianske Lazne, Brunn is Brno, Pressburg is Bralislava' and so on. ' Bloodshed and violence has already swept this border area as Su- detens paraded, demonstrated, and staged disorderly scenes. Czech police who tried to put down the rioting were attacked, and Czech troops began to be brought up. Thus an "incident" is in Ihe making which Hitler might readily use as justification to invade Czechoslovakia to protect residents of German blood, Then the darkened border areas would also be the area in which tlie first victims of the war would die, though the real military defense lines after the border forts were crushed, lie along Ihrec lines crossing the country at Prague and Ihen successively farther east.

Speaking by radio from the oval diplomatic room at the White House in connection with the constitution observance at Poughkeepsie, N. Y., the chief executive asserted that the "pa- jxons of ghosts and hobgoblins" of the nation's early history would have little to learn from present-day "fear-mongers." Roosevelt declared that to become a "workable instrument of government" the constitution needed men in every succeeding generation" to administer it who were "as great as the men who wrote it." The president's only reference to world affairs was: "It is with deep personal disappointment that /I find the affairs of the world such that I cannot be with my neighbors in Poughkeepsie today." Hard Pressed DE QUEEN, Ark.—The Do Queen Leopards were hard pressed to win their opening football game 1 frou Waldron high Bulldogs here Fridaj night by a score of 13 to 0. Twice the visitors stemmed drives by tlie Leopards which seemed sure of touchdowns in the first period stopping them on their five yard line and holding for downs. Fumbles were costly for both teams in the first half. The Leopards scored near the end of the second quarter when Cole, Leopard quarterback, advanced the bull 42 yards on three plays to put it on Ihe one yard line from where Jones fullback scored. In tlic third period De Queen advanced the bull to Waldron's one- yard line and Cole carried it over after which he place kicked for the extra point. The Leopards registered 11! first downs to six for the visitors. Cole, Jones, and Fen ton in the bai-k- field, and Baker, Turner and Crady iji the line, showed up well for the Leopards.

A 28-yard, field, goal, in the last « nine minutes of play enabled the Hope High School football .team to defeat the powerful Haynesville Golden T3ornado team, 9 1 to 7, Friday night at Haynesville in the opening grid game , of the season for 'both teams. The kick was by Daniels, 180-pound blond fullback, who sent the ball through the middle of the uprights to give Hope the lead for the first .time in the ball game. From then on, nine minutes to play', it was Roy Taylor's sensational defensive play at center that kept Hope out in t front. With Haynesville desperate-.-in an effort to overcome the two-point lead, the Golden Tornado swept down the field twice within the shadow of Hope's goal. The first march in those last nine minutes was to the 15-yard marker where Taylor broke through the Une to throw the 'Haynesville ball carriers for losses at crucial moments. Hope stemmed the first drive and punted o'ut. ..''.. Haynesville came back down the field to the 10-yard line. Again it was Taylor whp,slashed! through the line" to ; halt'the'Tornado team with inches to go for a first down. Hope held and . Daniels got off his best punt of the night which sent the ball back beyond midfield. , The Bobcats continued to fight arid gained possession as the exciting battle came to an end. The First Quarter Haynesville received, attempted a series of power plays without' much success. Both teams were unable to gain terrilory consistently, however Haynesville appeared to have the edge. (Near the end of the opening quarter came the first score of the game. Gladney White, big Haynesville tackle, broke through to block Samuel's punt. The'ball rolled over the goal where a Haynesville player fell on it for touchdown. It was the first real "break" of the game. Haynesville kicked for extra point. The Second Quarter Hope soon had possession of the ball and executed a lateral pass for touchdown. Eason took Samuel's pass for 15 yards, lateraled to Fulkerson who ran five and then tossed it to Roy Taylor who got into ah open field and ran 35 yards for Hope's first touchdown. No one was near Taylor as he raced over the goal line. An attempted pass from Samuels to Eason failed. Ihe half ended with Haynesville leading, 7 to 6. Haynesville outplayed Hope in the first quarter. The teams were about even on first downs in the second quarter. Tlie Third Quarter Hope received to start the second half but was unable to advance the ball. The Haynesville offense clicked better than at any time previously, the Tornado team making several first downs on wide end runs and spinner plays. These plays came inconsistent and were not in dangerous territory.
