ALBERT GRAVES (SEAL,) Mayor of the City of Hope, Arkansas Politicians Use Music in Honolulu Can'did'ates , B r i n g 0 ut Their Ukeleles in Campaign HONOLULU—Not all Americans re gard the politician who strums an sings for his votes as a new charactci Americans in the Hawaiian Island are used to hillbilly politicians. Ii fact, it i.s evident—a.s the candidates there .scramble for their ukelelcs in the present campaign—that anyone rush enough to slum the hillbilly technique and stick to political issues would be booed off his stump. To islanders, who consider politics their major recreation, the skill of a candidate's hula troupe often outweighs the fluency of his promises. Generally, they judge his popularity by the number of flower leis draped about his neck as he rises to speak; find his ability by his proficiency in foreign languages. What he says usually is described as "hoomalimali," the Hawaiian equivalent of "banana oil." Before the October 1 primary, speakers will discuss a multitude of local problems, President Roosevelt and the New Deal. But voters, who flock to political rallies a.s gleefully as circuses, arc more interested in the show. Candidates for every major office present their own hula troupes and musicians. Dances frequently are longer than speeches. Hawaiians, with some 31,000 rcgi istcrcd voters, arc the most important racial group. Japanese rank numerically second and no heller than fourlh in influence. Appealing to Hawaiians, one candidate (Mayor Charles S. Crane, Republican) already has introduced a campaign song which, when sung and danced, will describe his exploits glowingly. The first two lines go this way: "Ho inoa keia no Charles S. Crane, Ka meia okc ,kdlana, Oahua. ..." (I sing the praises of Charles S. Crane, The mayor of the county of Oahu. . . .) Settlement of Turk-Greek Minorities Problem Foreshadowed Czech Solution The Hope High School football lean ruled a.s a slight favorite-to win its first conference tilt of the season a.s the Bobcats awaited the kickoff that will send them against the Clarksville Panthers at 8 o'clock Friday night. The Bobcats, making. their home debut, will pack a 13-pound weight advantage over Ihe crimson team from Clarksville, .according, to weights announced by Coaches Hammons of Hopi and Melheny oPthe visiting team. Bobcats Arc Ready Hammons said'his team was ready and lhal he expected a better showing than the Bobcats made at Haynesville, La,, last week where the team opened the season with a 9 to 7 win. "The squad ha.s shown some improvement this week in blocking and in getting away with greater speed with the ball. "I expect, the Clarksville team to do lots of passing against us. We're going to do some ourselves. This should make it a wide-open, hard-fought game from the start. "As lo the condition of Ihe tcam, 1 have four men on the ailing list. One is definitely out, Loy Ward, end, but the other three will see action. Ward has a knee injury which may keep him out for two more weeks. "Coleman and Baker, halfbacks, will )>c hampered some, bill both will get into the game. Dean Parsons, guard, has boils on one of his arms. Parsons will start at his regular guard position.

The suggestion has been cabled to French, Czechoslovakia and British authorities that they look to Greece and Turkey for the answer to the problem thai now worries Europe. Those Iwo countries were for many years blood-thirsty enemies. During the World war, massacre, torture, and the most ruthless warfare were the rule whenever Turkey and Greece crossed paths. In 1921-22, another war between them carried forward the olden feud. During that war, Greeks living in Constantinople a.goilated against the Turkish government and actively worked against it by collecting money and enlisting volunteers to fight with Ihe Greeks. The feeling between the two countries was as bad as it is possible for feeling to get. The League Steps In The war over, the Greek army defeated and the Turks victorious, hundreds of i thousands of refugees were stranded "on the wrong side" of the armistice lines. The Turks had shipped home thousands of Greek wom- anil children refugees, interning the males of mililary age. Many thousands of Greeks, with a well-defined community life headed by the Oecu- menical Patriarch, a religious leader, remained in Constantinople. But ill-feeling had reached a point where il was hopeless lo expect that Grcck.s in Turkey would ever do anything but. hate the Turkish government, or vice versa. Both countries ad- milled that, both wished it were rid of unreconciled people in their midst. Then the League of Nations stepped in. Dr. Fridtjof Nansen, its representative, proposed an exchange of Christians in Turkey for Mohammedans in Greece. Conferences were held at Lausanne, Switzerland, and on January SO, 1923, an exchange plan was agreed lo. Between 1,300,000 Greeks and -100,000 Turks were affected. A Mixed Commission was appointed, four men from cadi country concerned, and three from League members not involved in the World war. It was their job lo arrange all t.hc details, to decide who belonged lo the classes of people to be exchanged, protect a.s well as possible the right of who left property behind, provide tranpnrtation. and conduct the va.sl detail of the business end of such a vast migration. Within five months, 40.000 Turks had been moved. The Turkish government provided them with land, seed, implements, and a five-year tax exemption. There was much suffering and dissatisfaction, and undoubtedly some injustices were chargeable to the (Mixed Commission. But results were being obtained. By the end of 1D24. about 370,000 Moslems had left Greek soil for Anatolia. Disputes Aplenty Many Grcck.s preferred to tlay in Constantinople, creating another problem. Even some of those classified by the treaty a.s "exchangeable" resisted.

(Continued on Page Thrive) Graves Tells of PWA Negotiations Reviews Courthouse for Rotary—Walter Gregory, Chicago, Guest Mayor Albert Graves explained lo Hope Rotary club Friday noon at Hotel Barlow that tlic four Arkansas cities, Menn, Newport, Clarendon and Sheridan, which received PWA assurance of loan-grants Thursday had obtained approval of their projects under the old PWA authority. They had obtained approval, but the money ran out, and so they were already waiting when the new money was authorized, the mayor said. He pointed out that Hempstead county, which failed to obtain a definite commitment of PWA action on its courthouse proposal, was in a less favorable position, but he expressed the hope that since an exception had been made by PWA in the case of these other towns, the local project later might albo be exempt from the rule requiring bond issues to be voted on before October 1. Under Arkansas law no bond election maj be held legally before November 8, the general election dale and there arc probably 15 states faced with a similar conflict between state 1 law and federal procedure, the mayor said, following his return from an emergency trip to Washington, D. C., in behalf of the courthou.se project. Probably Ihe most important issue complicating the Hempstead county project i.s the election contest, which is still pending, the mayor said. Clearing up of lhal question might expedite PWA adion, he pointed out; but added thai .so many important projects, such »b Ihe New Orleans port undertaking, are also temporarily barred) from PWA help thai it seems likely the federal agency will lake a broader view of matters later on. Mr. Graves .said he obtained a halfway promise from PW to give Hcmp- sAtead county its loan-grant oui of any unexpended appropriations. The mayor said he believed il would be safcsl for Ihe county to proceed with its courthouse bond election as planned November 8, meanwhile con- luiuing negotiations with (he PWA.

Connecticut!, Massachusetts. New Hampshire, Vermont, New York and New Jersey rivers were rising. At many points rain fell. Sections of Connecticut appeared graveful menaced. At Hartford men worked desperately piling sandbags upon the Connecticut river's dykes. Rhode Island was the hardest hit, reporting 250 dead and damage estimated at 100 million. This was the only official damage estimate, but indications were that the loss for the entire area would roach % billion dollars. The known dead by states: Rhode Island 247; Massachusetts 112; Connecticut 57; New York 48; New Hampshire 13; Vermont, New Jersey, Quebec (Canada) two each—total 483. Deaths Near 300 BOSTON, Mass.—(/P)—'Ihc list of dead in hurricane-twisted New England rose toward the 300 mark Thursday night .as communication was restored slowly to isolated communities. Property damage was counted in the tens of millions. Crops were destroyed, orchards uprooted and highways remained littered with trees and telegraph polls. Rising river waters inundated lowlands in the western sec- lion of Massachusetts and Connecticut and portions of New Hampshire. Many of those who met death slill were unidentified Thursday night and there was no word from .scores of New Hampshire, Vermont and Rhode Island communities bereft of communication facilities for more than 24 hours. The loll was far from complete. There were 96 known dead in Massachusetts, 96 in Rhode Island, 31 in Connecticut, 13 in New Hampshire and two in Vermont. In Westerly, R. 1., where the toll appeared largest of any -•-ingle fomnumily, there were 30 known dead, and the Providence (R. I.)

Truck- At Godesburg, Hitler and Cham- • berlain exchanged notes across the Rhine after suspension- of their conversation on the European crisis. There was no official Information as to what Chamberlain's letter said, what Hitler replied, or when the conversations assuring Europe's peace at the cost. of dismemberment of Czechoslovakia would be resumed. A rising storm of protest against the unprecedented price of Europe's peace, and the new clamor for other Czechoslovak, minorities besides the Sudeten Germans, put a dark background behind the meeting at Godesburg. At least eight' were reported killed in Sudetenland border disorders, and many were injured. Recruiting officers for the "Polish Free Corps" were opened at Warsaw, across the border from the Polish-inhabited areas of Czechoslovakia. Moscow announced Soviet Russia had warned Poland that their mutual non-aggression pact would be considered nullified if Polish troops marched into Czechoslovakia. At Geneva, Soviet Foreign Commissar Vitvinoff told the League of Nations Soviet Russia might voluntarily aid Czechoslovakia. Trgops along France's Belgian and German frontiers were ordered Friday to take up positions ready for an emergency. (Continued on Page Three) Czechs Trust Army Head PRAGUE, Czechoslovakia—W-Gen. Jan Syrovy, 50, inspector general of the Czechoslovak army, formed a new cabinet Thursday to cope with the republic's rising anger over surrender of its Sudeten area to Germany. The veteran campaigner, considered friendly toward Soviet Russia, succeeded Premier Milan Hodza, who. : cabinet resigned earlier in the day in the face of resentment against the government's capitulation to Anglo- French pressure designed to appease Adolf Hitler. General Syrovy, emerging as the republic's strong man, took over the War Ministry portfolio in addition to the premiership. He lost an eye while fighting in the famed Czech Legion with the Russian armies against Germany during the World war. It was during this service tlvat his warm friendship developed with the Russians. The only holdover from the Hodza cabinet was Foreign Minister Kamil Krofta, who shared with President Eduuard Benes and Hodza the decision to cede Sudetenland to Germany at the insistent prodding of (Continued on Page Three) Cotton NEW ORLEANS.— (P)— October co1- ton owned Friday at 7.97 and closed at 7.94.
