"We're usually pretty hard to get along witli in November," admitted Coach Meyer. Next Saturday it is Tulsa's Golden Hurricane at Tulsa, then it is Texas, Rice and Southern Methodist in order.

Widow of Indian Barnett Is Oustet - • '' ""* ^ Government Men Carr Her Screaming Out of Big Mansion LOS ANGELES, Calif.—{^—Kicking and screaming, Ann Laura Barnett, 57, widow of the wealthy and eccentric Indian Jackson Barnett was led Sunday from the gas-filled wilshire boulevard mansion which he built, but in which the government lias ruled she no longer is entitled to live. United States Marshal Robert Clark and more than a dozen deputies, moving on the white Colonial home from Iwo sides, dragged Mrs. Barnell and her daughter, Maxine Slurgis, off to the county jail and booked them on suspicion of resisting federal officers. Their removal followed a tear-gas attack during which Marshal Clark said Mrs. Barnett, armed with a hatchett, stood at the top of a flight of stairs, daring officers to come up and get her. Two deputies, emerging from the home, told reporters Mrs. IjarneU had hurled the hatchet as the officers clustered at the foot of the stairs. But Clark said she was over* come by a tear-gas shot and dropped it as he ltd liis 12 men and Iwo women up the steps. Editor The Slar: Several years ago was on Ihe school board ;uid I put ix children through high school. Dur- ng the time they were going to school was only paying a very !,'m'all tax. I tm now in debt now to. the Slate of Arkansas for Ihc education of my children. In talking to my friend Sheriff Bear- :lcn, he told me that Ihey had collccl- cd 54700 poll lax thai was turned over :o the schools of Hempstead county wilhoul any expense to Ihe slate. Simi- amounls have been collected in every county in Ihe Slale of Arkansas for poll lax receipls, ancVnpw I understand that they are aboul to do away wilh the poll tax and establish a registration of voters. Doubtless this will give somebody extra employment and become an expense to the schools of Arkansas. While on Ihc school board I took a census of the schools in a rough way and I found that about 40 per cent of the people who had children in th'e white public schools were not paying the tax and to my surprise I found about 80 per cent of the negroes who had children in school were taxpayers. In the lasl two or throe years I have been acquainted with school teachers who have had to depreciate their warrants in order to cash them; and, while we arc spending too much money for the ovcrheacd expenses of our high schools for foolball and olhcr exercses, we have not been overpaying out teachers in Ihe common schools. We ought to have law in the Slate of Arkansas that every man and wo- nan sending children lo school could how that not only their children were vaccinated, but lhat their parents were poll tax payers. We are now furnish- ng free school boows to the common school which is all right The parents who are gelling free, school boks are able lo pay Ihe poll lax for bolh molh- WALNUT RIDGE, Ark.-(/P)-Shc'r- iff M, C.

WASHINGTON - (/P) — President Roosevelt will confer'wth rcpresenla- lives of railway labor and managemenl Monday in an effort to avert a strike of 1,000,000 rail workers against the proposed wage reduction which his fact- finding board has declared unjustified. The White House gave no inkling as to what the president would say to the deadlocked parties. There was some speculation, however, that an effort might be made to reach an agreement on recommendations to the next congress concerning liberalization of government railroad loans and other rail legalization. "Some execulives in New York predicted that the government might offer I the railroads about $1,000,000,000 inj easy-term rehabilitation loans, as a seque^J^fche prtri»t!ential*bpard's 'l^c* omhifendation that the managements abandon their proposal to reduce wages 15 per cent December 1 Although the president's fact-finding board recommended Saturday that the rail managements withdraw their notice of a pay cut, the recommendation is not legally binding. The managements have not yet indicated whether they will comply. Still up to Ihe president, in Ihe words of one member of the fact-finding board, is the problem of averting the strike which the workers have voted if the reduction is put into effect. Oppose \\1agc Cut WASHINGTON — (fP) —. President Roosevelt's Fact Finding Board recommended over the week-end that the railroads abandon their proposal to reduce wages of approximately 1,000,000 employes on December 1. The railroad management gave no immediate indications as to whether they would comply. Still up lo the president, one board member said, was the proble inof averaling the nation- mide strike which the rail workers have voted if the proposed 15 per cenl reduction is put into effect. The White House disclosed that Mr. Roosevelt would discuss this problem Monday at a conference with George M. Harrison, head of the Railroad Labor Executives' Association, and John J. Pelleyk, president of the Association of American Railroads. Presumably, the possibilities of other proposed solutions of the railroads' financial plight will be discussed at this conference. The administration's ideas on government aid and legislation at the next session of congress are expected to be canvassed. Summary uf Board's Unanimous Report The board summarized its unanimous report to Mr. Roosevelt over the weekend as follows: "1. The wages of railway labor are not high even as compared wilh wages in other comparable industries. "2. A horizontal reduction of wages on a national scale would not meet Ihe financial emergency of the industry, since the savings would nol be dis- Iribuled merely to the needy roads. 3. A wage reduction in the rialroad industry would run counter to the trend of wage rates in industry generally. "4. The financial distress of the carriers which lias obtained since October, 1937, when Ihe last wage increases were granted, is as yet a short- term situation. As such, it cannot be regarded as grounds for a wage reduc- lion, especially in view of present indications of an improvement in the business of the carriers. "5.
