A contract for the motion picture travelogue that will be shown daily, will be discussed at a meeting of the Centennial Commission executive Commission this week, in anticipation of an agreement with producers by which seasonal "shots" can be made before the winter breezes blow.

Newton Would Bar Bond Amendment From November Ballot LITTLE ROCK-W-The. Arkansas Supreme Court Monday ordered stricken from the records a brief filed in court by Beloit Taylor and June P. Woolen, secretary and former chairman, respectively, of the State Democratic Committee, asking the tribunal to cancel its ruling that Governor Bailey was not the Democratic nominee when he ran for the senate in the October, 1937, special election. The order was made as the court denied a rehearing on its decision. As a matter of public interest, the court advanced on the docket for submission October 10 a suit filed in the high tribunal last Saturday by former Corporation Commissioner C. P. Newton, seeking to bar from the November general election ballot the proposed constitutional amendment for refunding the state's 143-million-dollar highway bond debt. The advancement would prospectively make possible a ruling five days before the November ballot would be certified.

Cross Reports Persons placed in private employment during August by the 14 offices of the Arkansas State Employment Service exceeded by 15 per cent the number for whom jobs were found in July, according to D. Palmer Patter.son, director, in reports made public Monday. "The surprising phase of 'operating reports, 1 Mr. Patterson said, 'is that replacements held up so well during August, which is normally considered a slow month in business.' Even more surprising was the wide distribution among employer groups. More than a hundred different types of establishments were served during the month. Another encouraging noe was the per- cenlage of regular placements compared with the record for previous months. Compared with only 406 permanent placements or 39 per cent of a total of 2069 in July. 650 of the 1387 placements reported in August or 27 per cent, were permanent.

All of the regular Royal Air Force men on leave, and the Royal Air Forco observation corps, also were called. Authorities stressed the fact that both measures were purely precautionary, and did not constitute mobilization. They came after Prime Minister Chamberlain had summoned the parliament for Wednesday, In Berlin, Reichsfuehrer Hitler, before addressing the "entire Reich," received from a special British envoy Chamberlain's "personal communication" sent him in an effort to fora- stall a European war. Sir Horace Wilson, the emissary, who had flown from London, handed the communication to Hitler in a brief meeting at the chan- cellory. The communication, which had th» approval of Premier Daladier of France, was believed in German official circles to be a second Anglo- French plan for preventing war over Czechoslovakia. Other Developments Other developments were: PARIS—the ministry of public works called upon all persons who were ready to do so to evacuate Paris by rail. The American embassy advised all American citizens to return to ths United States, if able to do so.
