But the Prague government was angered bp Henlein's suggestion to the world that Czechoslovakia be dismembered to allow union of the Sudeten region with Germany, and alarmed abo by the possibility that Henlcin' appeal might have found some approval in England and France. So the government acted in what ai official spokesman tonight described ai, "the Czech way." .The order declaring the Sudeten party illegal was pu into effect at once and gendarmerie throughout the Sudeten regions ordered to close party headquarters. In most of these districts martial law prevailed, and it was expected the party would be wiped out as an openly active force without incident. The regional government of the prov- nce of Bohemia, in which many 'Su- detens live, ordered all residents of 03 provincial political districts lo surrender within 24 hours all arms and munitions they may have stored in secret places. The Ministry of the Interior earlier on its own responsibility had dissolved the so-called F. S.

Ladis got together with the interested parlies Friday and laid plans to start the 1938 world scries in the home of the National League winner Wednesday, October 5. but pending the outcome of Ihe hot scrion circuit pennant fight, many of the details were lefl up in Hie air. With the Pittsburgh Pirates. Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds and New York Gianls all still very much in the thick of tho National League race, the commissioner had to consider the possibility of a tie, as well as a necessary "break" for traveling in tho event the Cubs win the flag. So, in his conference with tho presidents of both circuits, the representatives of the four Nalional League clubs and the New York Yankees, who are just about "in" With their thirtt straight American League flag, the commissioner settled it this way: If there is no tie, the first two games will be played in the Nalional League city, October 5 and 6; the next three, including the week-end contests— which naturally will draw the larger crowds—in the 70,000-capacity Yankee Stadium, and the last two. if necessary back in tho National League town. Any game washed out by rain, of course, will bo played on the next day in tho original town. ""Thus, if" any Oilier club than the Cubs conies through in the senior circuit, the four-otit-of-seven series will get under way Wednesday and Thursday in the National League home grounds, will shift to the Yanks' ball park Friday.

If there is a National League tie, however, these dates will be tossed out. and the series will be held up until the deadlocked clubs play off for the pennant in a single game. This engagement probably will be held Tuos 1 day, October 4, and the series then will start three days later in the National League.

Williams, who recently sent large Hope watermelons to lumber company firms located in Chicago and Pittsburgh, has received letlers thanking him for the melons which gained publicity in both Ihe middle-western and eastern city. The letler from Chicago follows: Mr. J. R. Williams, Lumber, Hope, Arkansas. Dear Rufus: A few days ago Ihe Express man delivered lo us the finest, largest watermelon it has ever been our pleasure to see, and as a matter of information, this lias caused more commotion and curiosity throughout the building than if you had shipped us a live hippopotamus. Also, someone reported this to the Chicago Daily Times and they hustled a photographer over and took pictures, and wo have been expecting each issue the picture would appear in the daily papers, and this i;; the real reason we have been a little slow in acknowledging receipt of this very much appreciated gift, as we wanted the boys down in Arkansas to see how the Yankees up here look on such a melon as a real curiosity, but so far we have been disappointed that the picture has not appeared, but maybe it is a newspaper man's trick to increase circulation, because everybody in the building has been buying each edition to get the picture, and if it does eventually come out'in the paper, we are going to send a copy of it on to you. We expect to have a feast on this fine melon this afternoon, and when we do, we will be thinking bf you, and want you to know how much pleasure and enjoyment this has afforded so many of ua. With continued good wishes, we are Yours truly, Chas. L. Baxter Lumber Company Clias. L. Easier The leller from Pittsburgh: J. R. Williams Hope, Ark.

The melon arrive'd Saturday morning and a local fruit market had the melon in their show window Saturday afternoon and Sunday.' Monday we took it to the local Ice Manufacturing plant and left it there for twenty- four hours and had a regular watermelon feast Tuesday night. Twelve people were only able to oat about half of the melon although it was firm, swoet and as fine a melon as I ever tasted. The melon measured fifty-six inches the narrow way and sixty-eight inches the long way, and the express company showed the weight of the melon and the crate as being 154 pounds.

Schleihauf U.S. Still Fearful of a World War 9 President and Cabinet Hold Conference on Emergency Steps WASHlNGTON-(/P)-A cabinet officer walked from President Roosevelt's conference table Friday and said of the situation in Europe: "Some of the strain has been relieved but it is still teetering." This was taken to mean that, so far as the United States government knows, Europe remains on the brink of war despite recent peace efforts.

This was the amazing reply given by George Cukor when asked about the problems he has encountered in directing "Romeo and Juliet," opening Sunday at the New thealor. "T rrieartt il," he smiled. Bin the 'great stars, the enormous production, the big sets and thousands of extras? "This may bo exploding a popular illusion," said Cukor, "but all-star casts are the simplest lo direct. The director's task is made easy when he gets a slory wilh many fine parts, and is given the greatest stars to interpret such a story. I found this true of 'David Copperfield' . and 'Dinner at Eight.' It has been particularly true of 'Romeo and Juliet.' Any director would count himself fortunate to work with Norma Shearer and Leslie Howard, supported by a cast headed by John Barrymore, Edna May Oliver, Basil Rathbone, Reginald Denny, C. Aubrey Smilh and other talented and capable actors and actresses .Who take much of the load off the director's shoulders. "As for big sets and crowd scenes, they are a matter of physical organization and planning. Jack Conway, who directed 'A Tale of Two Cities' and \Viva Villa!' says the same thing. It was the small, intimate scenes, such as the balcony scene, tomb scene and nightingale and lark scene in 'Romeo and Juliet,' that required delicate treatment and deft handling. "It is the interpretation of a story that is apt to cause trouble for a di- rcclor," Cukor continued. "Many modern writers are inclined to be vague in their characterizations and central theme. Not so Shakespeare. He has made interpretation amazingly easy. The story of Verona's famous lovers has all tho true greatness of simplicity. Shakespeare's intention is clear from the first scene to the last, and his sense of the dramatitc has never been surpassed. "I must admit that there was one problem, a new one. It was not really Saenger Sunday Handsome Richard Greene gets the actor's plum of the year as co-stni^ with scintillating Sonja Hcnic jn her newest 20th Century- Fox picture, "My Lucky Star." a problem because it was solved by rehearsing the entire cast before a scene was filmed.
