PAGE FOUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS lice Handicapped for Porker Battle Three Stars, Including Lain, Will Not Make Trip to Ozarks By FEUX R McKNIOHT Associated Press Sports Writer ' Spintered by tragedy, injuries and defeat. Rice Institute, the fallen wonder team, goes up to the Ozark foothills Saturday to make another stand in a growing comeback effort Not with the Owls in their invasion of Arkasas' stadiimv are Ernie Lain, their lumbering star; Captain Jess Hines, the lighthouse tackle and Jack (Red) Vestal, sturdy line backer. On the trip but suffering injuries that slow them down are Earl Glasse, sophomore back; Doug (Scat) Sullvan. bounding back, and Ollie Cordell, trouble shooter. Dropped in their first three games. but slowly recovering their wind, Rice's Owls are banking on courage and unpredictable reserve skill now. Vestal will probably never play again, he lies critically ill in a hospital. Lain, the touchdown maker, has a bad leg. Death in his family, and his own injuries, kept Hines out. To Cordill and E. Y. Steakley, the track phantom who edged into the Owl backfield last Saturday and drove across two touchdowns that whipped Alabama Poly, will go the bulk of the Owl offensive duty. Arkansas, victim of a last minute Aggie surge last week, will try its famed passing game. Two other conference games and one intersectional bout, featuring the undefeated Texas Christians, will round- out the week-end bill. •The Texas Aggies, mixing Dick Todd's fleet broken fielding with big John KJmbrough's powerhouse line jabbing, and finding it works very well, meet Southern Methodist, winner of its pnly conference start aganst Texas, at Dallas. The Methodists will be crippled at the wings with Captain Charlie Sprague out, possibly for the season. Still without a victory but edging closer each Saturday with revived defense play, the University of Texas, which hasn't won a game snce a year ago Saturday, tries to do it against the same team at Austin—the Baylor Bears. Coach D. X. Bble sad he would depend on the experenced backfield of Bill Forney, Wally Lawson, Beefus Bryan and Wes Boyer, a combination that fared better than any other of the season in a tight los sto Southern Methodist last week. Unbridled Texas Christian, a team just about as good as it wants to be, goes to Tulsa to meet Tulsa's Golden Hurricane in the lone intersectional game. Fullback Connie Sparks and Halfback Johnny Hall will be held out of the game because of injuries received in the Baylor game but Coach Leo Meyer has capable reserves in Logan Ware and Ward Wilkinson. The Frogs, with their own Davey O'Brien, one of the nton's best passers, will run smack into Tommy Thompson, another great ball thrower who could give theVrt anxious moments. Hope Man Named as Field Advisor J. T. Cross Appointed to Unemployment Compensation Division LITTLE ROCK-^)—Labor Commissioner Ed I.' McKinley appointed Robert H. Goodman, of Malvern; J. Truman Cross, of Hope; and William R. Copeland, of Camden, field advisors Friday for the unemployment compensation division. Charles Nowlin Is Killed by Officers Bentonville Man Had Refused to Surrender on Minor Charge BENTONVILLE, Ark.—(^)—Charles Nowlin, 49, farmer of near Gravetle, was shot and killed by a posse of state police and sheriff's officers Friday when he refused to surrender on a disturbance of the peace charge. Sheriff Earl Austin, who was with the posse, said several officers fired at Nowlin when the man started to draw la pistol. The officers had been trying since Wednesdoy to persuade Nowlin to surrender on the misdemeanor charge preferred against him by a Gravette ranker who alleged the farmer used threatening language against him.

Japan's Ihreat to denounce the 1922 nine-power treaty pledging respect for the principles of Chinese territorial integrity, and the open-door policy, clouded the horizon for Western nations in the Orient. The Spanish insurgents reported that a six-day offensive against the government's Ebro salient in lower Catalonia had carried them within rifle-shot of the river and was picking up speed.

We then adjourned to meet with Mrs. Kenneth Jones in December. Friday. November 4, HERE ARE THE 1939 FORD V-8 CARS HERB are the new 1939 Ford V-S tars. Above, the deluxe Fordor ledan, below the Ford V-S Tudor ledan. The two cars are individually ityled. The deluxe car has wholly lew streamlines, a deep hood un- New Model Fords (Continued from Page One) O new streamlines, has a dislinclive appearance of its own. At the same time, Doth it and the Ford V-8 share a family likeness with the Lincoln-Zephyr and the new Mercury 8. The DeLuxe has a deep hood with ong lines unbroken by couvres, low radiator grille in bright metal, and wide-spaced headlamps set into the r enders. The words Ford DeLuxe, in script loiters of chro'm'e, are divided at the front of the hood. The hood landle is concealed in a vertical ex- ension of the radiator ornament. The 1939 DeLuxe is powered by an 85 horsepower V-8 engine of even more rugged construction than the 5,000,000 already in use. The Ford V-8 is of- 'ered with the same engine as the DeLuxe or with the economy 60 horsepower V-8 engine. All Ford cars are now equipped with lydraulic brakes. Pedal action is exceptionally easy, and the brake shoes work in 12-inch cast iron drums with a total of 162 square inches of braking broken by louvres, a low radiator grille in bright metal and wide spaced headlamps. The Ford V-8 has a full grille and unobtrusive louvres at the rear of the hoodsldes. The deluxe cars are powered with the 85 horsepower engine, the Ford V-S with the So or 60 horsepower engine.' Both cars have hydraulic brakes. Bodies are all-steel. The deluxe cars are available in five body types, tho Ford V-S la three, with color option. lining for quick slopping and long life. A feature of the bodies of both cars is their silence, achieved as a result of exhaustive road and laboratory research into Ihe cause and correction of car .noises. By minor changes in design and by use of newly-developed insulating materials, engine and road noises are effectively kept out of the car. The bodies are of all-welded steel constructon, and are fitted with safety glass throughout. They have clear- vision venlilalion and ventilating windshield. All body types have large luggage compartments. In fact, the coupes in both lines have two luggage compartments and large shelves for parcels as well. The interiors of the DeLuxe car are luxuiously apponted. Cushions in all body lypes are of enlirely new construction to allow freer spring action. They are notably deeper, and the pan- elled effect in the tailoring gives them added smartness. The atractive interiors of the Ford V-8 bodies show careful consideralion for the convenience and comfort of driver and passengers. The cushions arc deep, and are wide enough for three people. There are well-placed arm rests, pillar lights, ash Irays and other conveniences. Fourteen Persons Die in Plane Crash 9 Men, 4 Women and One Child Killed as Airliner Falls ST.

CHAPTER XXIX rjNDER the leadership of "Torchy" Stephens, immaculate in his tails and white tie, The Swingateers were in the groove. They were "sending" tonight in the glittering Golden Bowl of the Pacific-Plaza, sending it out of the world to the delight of the ickies and the whackies, to the utter happiness of the disciples of swing. At a table alone sat Bob Tail, idly smoking a cigaret. To the casual observer he was indolently at ease. In reality every nerve and muscle in his body was taut. Since leaving Dannie Feeley earlier that day he had been on the run. He had posted "Torchy" that George Weeks was to have a spot in the night's dance program. He had reserved a table at the Golden Bowl—a very certain table, the one which had been directly under the wisp of gun-smoke which showed in Tait's candid camera shot taken on the night of Dombey's murder. And he had invited NeWa Starr to be his guest—and to bring Harris Rogers. He saw Nelda and Rogers now, being led through the maze of tables by a waiter. The Starr girl was as strikingly beautiful as ever, and as she and Rogers neared the table Tait caught the scent of that perfume which ,had forever haunted him. He rose gallantly. "I'm «o glad you could come," he said. "It was nice of you," Nelda said, seating herself in the chair which Tait held. Rogers held out his hand. "How are you, Tait? I'm glad to be here. Nobody _can say you're not a good sport." "The same goes for you," Tait said. "Sit down and I'll order drinks. I'm expecting some others, but I guess they're a little late." * * * A NEW voice sounded beside ~ him. "Not me. Not when I hear somebody ordering a drink!" It was Dannie Feeley, looking really resplendent in his dinner jacket. Tait greeted him jovially, introduced him to Nelda Starr. "And you already know Harris Rogers." It was while Dannie and Rogers were shaking hands that Leonard Macy arrived. Expecting anything, Tait stood close to Feeley. "Pannie, you've met Leonard ' you?" "1 think so," said Dannie. "Of course," said Macy urbanely. "Mr. Feeley and I have a lot in common." "Wei!, I don't know what it is," said Feeley. "You're a millionaire and I'm not even close." Macy laughed. "I referred to our interest in—crime." Tait dived into the breach and requested that everyone be seated. "Here come Anne and Myrna . . . pardon me." He went forward to meet the two girls. His breath caught a little, seeing Myrna. As though anticipating his purpose tonight, she wore the same* gown she had worn the night that Dombey was killed. She looked even lovelier than she had then, and Tait tried to believe that in her eyes \vas something especially for him. "You know, Tait," Harris Rogers said casually when Myrna and Anne had joined them, "it's really splendid of you—but I can't restrain my curiosity. Why have you invited this particular group to hear The Swingateers tonight?" Bob laughed. "Well, it's not so mysterious. We all have a connection with the band except perhaps Mr. Feeley here whom I invited simply because he's a very good friend of mine. Myrna, of course, has the greatest interest of all in the success of The Swing- ateers—and Anne is her best friend. Mine, too, I hope. Mr. Macy has an interest which is somewhat theoretical, but nonetheless real. Swing music as a modern phenomenon has always intrigued him. As for Miss Starr, I think she's perhaps the band's most confirmed fan." Tait paused. "As for yourself, Rogers, I don't think we should forget your guidance of The Swingateers over a long period." Rogers raised his glass. "Thank you." * * * ly/TACY spoke up. "I am glad to • LIJ - be here, Mr. Tait. But I don't believe I quite understood your reference to me." "Why ... I meant that you are interested in the psychological and physical effects of swing music on the human mind. I don't," Tait added with a, laugh, "happen to agree with your theories. I thought perhaps some actual contact with swing music dancers and a swing band might revise your opinion." "But I have been in the Golden Bowl before," Macy said. Tait raised his eyebrows quizzically. "So? I didn't know that." Rogers asked Myrna to dance. She glanced at Tait an4 he warned her with his eyes that it would be best for his purpose to be pleasant to the man she knew hated her. When Rogers and Myrna left the table Tait excused himself and sought "Torchy" on the band stage. "Has Weeks shown up?" "Torchy" grinned. "He's in the ante-room—with a bandage on hia neck. You didn't have somebody try to discourage his appearance, did you?" "You'd be surprised. Listen, 'Torchy'—when I signal from the table, let him play the song. When it's finished I'm going to make an announcement." The band leader nodded his understanding, and Tait sauntered back to the table. He was relieved that the injury to Weeks hadn't been serious enough to keep him away. Tait wanted "The Cat's Meow" featured tonight, and he wanted Weeks to play it. Ho felt certain that Weeks was somehow double-crossing Harris Rogers— but in what way, he was not definite. At any rate, he wanted to watch Rogers tonight as Weeks went into the song. * * * WHEN he reached the table, Nelda Starr looked at him indolently. "Why don't you ask me to dance?" "I was about to do that very thing," Tait said, holding out his nands. As they drifted off, he added, "The band is going to play your song tonight." Nelda's cool fingers touched the back of his neck. "That's sweet of you," she murmured. They danced a moment in silence and Tait, acting to his utmost, whispered, "That perfume is fascinating." Nelda laughed. "You remind me of Harris. It fascinates him, too. Sometimes he puts a touch of it on his lapels because, -he says, it reminds him of me. But I don't believe him. I think he wants to wear it and is ashamed to admit it." Tait stumbled awkwardly in his stride. "I'm sorry, NefUa. I'm afraid I'm not a wonderful dancer." Then he added casually, "Tell me, Nelda, did you ever live at the Claremont? I would swear I've seen you there." Nelda shook her blond head. "The Claremont? I don't believe I know the place." She was lying, Tait knew. But why? He danced ny the band, nodda* to "Torchy." The band swung to a stop, the lights went up, nod n silver spot bathed the leader. "Tonight," he said, "we have * special treat for you. A »ew member of our band—Georgt Weeks—is going to play .. . "n» Cat's Meow'." An excited murmur swept through the crowd. Be .I...I_M.I.I.I .. I | I* | |_ _j ^ had to vie with n little sunset glow that still lingered in the sky. From Sewnrd we proceeded to make several ports in the Prince William Sound District, To many world travelers this part of the Alnskan coast is more beautiful than even the Inside Passage. The first port in this district was Vaklez. Unfortunately we arrived there at 2:30 in the morning and left at 5. I was so exhausted from trying to stay up until it was dark, and get up as soon as it was light, that I slept right through our slay there. I am sorry now that 1 ddi, for Cnldez is located on a long, narrow, landlocked bay, surrounded by rather over-powering mountains. It is the terminus of the Richardson Trial, the only highway in Alaska. Valdez in the farthcr- cst north port in the world that is open all the year round, never freezing up in winter. When Congress refused Alaska rcprcscntatifin «t Washington, the city of Valdez seceded. Though reconciled finally to belonging to the United States, Valdez will keep fighting until Alaskans can vole for presidents, senators and congressmen. Leaving Valdez we went to Columbia bay and "called" at the face of the Columbia Glacier. Until now I have refrained from any description of glaciers. As a matter of fact, they had been a little disappointing to me. Instead of mountains of ice, as I had rather expected the mto be, they were just exactly what their definition implies—frozen rivers. But the Mngnificient Columbia Glacier redeemed all glaciers from mediocrity. It is the largest glacier in the wrold jit whose face ocean steamers'call. At half speed, and finally with all power cut off, we drifted in very close to the glistening blue and white palisade of ice, rising a sheer throe, hundred feet from the water's edge. It is four miles wide and extends back into the mountains nearly eighty miles. Some expressed disappointment that the sun was not shining, but I do not think I could have looked at it, even with colored glasses on, if it had. It was dazzling under a clody sky. The bay was full of ide bergs. One, as big as a house, had broken off quite recently and its color was still a deep blue greon. Everywhere in the bay ice bergs wore full of color, from palest aquamarine to deep blues and greens. The captain blew the whistle when we were a safe distance away, and we watched huge pieces of the ice break off. and hoard the roar as they crashed into the water. The wind that blew off the glacier was very raw and cold. Late that afternoon we reached Cordova, and for the first lime on the Vrip, I had to go ashore in Ihe rain. They lolcl me I had had great luck about the weather, always having sunshine heretofore when the ship docked. Alaskans apologize if it is not raining, just as Southern Californians apologize if it, for it is customary for it to rain nearly all the time along the qoasl. Cordova is called the Athens of Alaska. Sidney Laurence, famous for his paintings of Alaskan scenery lives there. The town is about three quarters of n mile from the dock. I enjoyed the walk, even in the rain, and thought Cordova had the prcllicsl homes of any Alaskan city we had yet visited. There now began a most interesting part of the trip, and one not always experienced by Alaskan tourists. In choosing the Mt. McKinley, I had a very definite purpose. I knew that it was a commercial ship, as much concerned with cargo as passengers, and I hoped to meet pcoplu who were not just tourists, but actually engaged in the business of Alaska. I was much gratified to meet gold miners, engineers, and executives of various business enterprises in Alaska. I felt that I was seeing the real Alaska. But I hadn't planned smelling the real Alaska. Heaven forbid that I over again smell such a smell as that which assailed my nostrils, when the pro- pcllors of the ship stirred up the water around the Nellie Juan fish cannery! However, we can become accustomed lo anything. After awhile I could breath deeply again, and by holding a heavily perfumed handkerchief over my nose I managed to go through two of the canneries at which we called. I learned much about Ihe industry,-^ that there were red, pink, king, echoes, sock eyes, dog and humphies. It is possible, almost, to faslen your eye on a certain fish, while still in Ihe fisherman's boat, and follow his career through the cleaning and cooking process lo a one pound can. We stopped at six "Surprise Porls" three in Alaska and Three in S E Alaska and loaded canned salmon, and fish oil. The canneries were usually located in beautiful lotllo coves ,and bays. One of them, the Atlantic & Pacific cannery, on Union Bay, had walks built out from the cannery along the water's edge, and back up into Ihe hills. As we spent from seven lo ten hours at each one, it was very pleasant to go ashore and walk around. During these excursions I revealed in the beauty of Alaskan wilclflowers. In color and fragrance Ihey equaled any I have ever seen. Before going ashore the captain always warned us to look out for bears, and he wasn't joking, either. There are great numbers of them in the forests, and they aren't trained to eat out of your hand. The most interesting stop was made at Metlakatla, on Annette Island in Soulheastern Alaska. This island is inhabited entirely by Indians. They own, co-operatively the canning plant and every Indian on the island is wealthy. They govern themselves, all speak English beautifully, and follow the pursuits of the white man This condition is a tribute lo the leadership of Father Duncan, who migrated there with the Indians from Canada i Father Duncan was not a Catholic,! as his name might imply, and the church he founded is non-sectarian 1 After leaving Mctlakulla there were no more scheduled slips until we reached Seattle. Goud weather had deserted us, and fog seitled down upon us. The captain decided to go oulside where we could go ahead in spile of the fog. In Ihe Inside Passage with its many islands, and hidden sharp rocks, it is very dangerous to sail in the fog. It was quite stormy and rough in Hecate Strait, and there was Ride Him Cowboy! Two luintlcrcl and fifty cowboys and cowgirls, competing for 58,000 in prizes wil Icar up Ihe lurf at the Arkansas Livestock Show and Championship Rodeo to be held in North Little Uock November 8 lo 13. They'will give ex- hibilions in wild Brahma Steer riding, in bareback horse riding, wild steer wrestling, and fancy roping and trick riding. a noticeable thinning of passengers at meals. By staying out in the fresh air mast of the lime, I managed lo keep on my feel. Upon receiving reports that even worse storms would be encountered down the outside of Vancouver Island, the captain, out of deference to his passengers turned inside again, and we proceeded at a snail's pace. Five ships lay at anchor all that night, and once our ship was put inlo full speed reverse to avoid striking an oil barge. Daylight brought a little relief, and by noon the overcast sky cleared, so that we returned to the Port of Seattle on as bright a dya as we left it. There was much luaghtor and excitement among the passengers over reaching home again, which 1 could not share with them. 1 stood alone on the bridge, instead of the crowded promenade deck as we crossed Elliott Buy, with a heavy heart. Mv trip to the wonderful, mysterious, beautiful North had been too short to satisfy me. I wanted to stay right with the Mt. McKinley, and return in a i couple of days on the very same trip. Some day 1 shall go again.
