This prci|x).sed amendment would al- ow any person who has reached the ige of 21 and established legal resi- lence in Arkansas to vote in any election without having to pay for that iirivilcgc. Under the state's present laws, the right to vote conts an elector one dollar a year. The charge is levied as a poll tax and the money obtained from this .source goc.s to the slate's common school fund. Some people, including Mr. Roosevelt, take the position that the right of franchi.*ic .should be free. Some of these argue that ;i "submerged one- third" of the public is disfranchised because it is unable to pay poll taxes. The proposed amendment would require the legislature to substitute for the poll ti-x a "just .system of registration." Under such a system, legal residents would obtain franchise rights by merely listing their names with proper oficials six months in advance "1 a given election. Many Oppose It ' Opponents of the proposal—appar- • 1'iilly numerous al.'-o—seem to be divided into two groups. One group attacks the plan on the ground that by eliminating the poll li x its a requirement for voting, the state would cut off from its common .school fund at least a quarter of a million dollars j> year.

Adolf Hitler never has been photographed swimming, playing ball or taking part in any sport. JHe has neve,c. been secri on horseback—In fact, lie gave a gift horse with which the Nazis once honored him to an actress. He loves to take speedy spins in his big, expensive automobiles and enjoys going for slow walks in his Bavarian hills. He has a passionate devotion to the nusic of Wagner, and it is probable that he identifies himself with the strutting, posturing cardboard heroes n the great Wagnerian operas. He regards himself as an authority on art. In the old days, he used to intersperse his .speeches with attacks on "cubism" and "dalaism" to people who had not ever heard of them. "There is no such thing us Chinese or Egyptian art," he once proclaimed. Moving pictures are one of his favorite relaxations. Sometimes he lakes in two a day. If a movie appeals lo him, he summons his underlings and shows il to them in hi.s private theater. Der Fuehrer also enjoys Wild West stories. 'today he is the awesome Fuehrer, bul even now women—from matron to school-girl—dimple and smile sweetly when Adolf Hitler is near them, for he possesses a strange charm for Germany's womanhood. There can be no doubl that his popularity with the ladies helped him to power. Countesses liked him first, chambermaids later, but to all he was "Dei Schoene Ade"—handsome Adolf. Still a bachelor, Hitler's name has been linked romantically with a number of women. There was "Geli." the daughter of hi.s half-sister. Gcli committed suicide in 1930.

The Slovak delegation, representing the Prague government, and Hungarian negotiators still were unable after a three-hour session to agree oil Hungary's demands for a slice of Czechoslovakia. Sources close to the Slovaks said that "in this serious hour' Hitler had been asked to mediate since the conference showed the two nations still were wide apart. Reliable previous indications have been that Hungary, spurred by German and Polish success in getting Czechoslovak territory, had demanded 8,000 square miles of southern Slovakia. The Slocaks were believed willing to cede only 2,000 square miles. Czechoslovak nervousness and excitement mounted. Troop trucks rum- led through this city to 24,000 popu- ition which straddles the Danube. Gendarmes carrying rifles with fixed ayoncts and Czech police forces were emfurccd.
