Railroads Cancel Pay Cut, and Look to U.S. for Financial Aid Roads Withdra\y Their Demand After Adverse Report of President's Fact-Finding Commission CHICAGO—(/IV-The nation's major railroads cancelled nn order for n 15 per cent wage cut for approximately 930,000 employes Friday in the hope their action would expedite government aid. The decision forestalled a strike and cleared Iho wiiy for drafting legislation to help the carriers, -(•) Withdrawal of the pay reduction notice was recommended last Saturday by President Roosevelt's Facl-Finding Board. "J. J. Pclley, president of the Association of American Railroads, and George M. Harrison, chairman of the Railway Labor Executives Association, conferred with Mr. Roosevelt Monday. They announced then he had promised to supixjrl u legislative program to aid the rail lines and had expressed confidence an informal committee of six, representing labor and management, could present one to congress. Pelley informed President Roosevelt by telegram that "the railroads are taking this action not because they agree with the conclusions reached by the Fact-Finding Board, but because they recognized the gravity of the situation and because they hope that out of all concerned, a sounder and more equitable transportation policy." New Eligibility Rules Adopted by State Association Players Changing Districts Must Stay Out for One Year BAR OTHER STATES Player Ineligible by Other State's Ruling Ineligible Here LITTLE ROCK—The Governing Board of the Arkansas Alhletic Association revamped the system for deciding the state junior and senior high school basket ball championships and made drastic changes in the eligibility regulations at a meeting nl West Side Junior High School Friday. The new basket ball plan calls for two tournaments in each district. One will be for schools with an enrollment of more than 175 students and the second for schools with smaller enrollment. The meets will be held at the same lime, bul nol at the same place. The winning team of each district will be eligible to enter a suite tournament. Schools in the Class B division may enter a district tournament of the Class A, or schools with the higher enrollment, bul schools with the larger enrollment may not participate in u Class B tournament. Winners of the two stale tournaments may meet for the state championship. Both state and district tournaments are to be run off on a single elimination basis. No learn will be permitted to play more than two games each day, and those games must be at least one session apart. The same rules will apply to invilationn] tournaments. The board voted down proposals to limit the number of games a team may pluy each week. Eligibility Changes Another change which was regarded as important will make a student ineligible for inter-school competition after attending a four-year high school eight semesters or a three-year high school ;:ix .semesters. Attendance of 15 .Joyc o» i\t:y si»ra(.vto;ws!ull be •regarded as a semester under the rule. This rule will become effective September 1, 1940. Players moving from one dislricl to another for any reason will be ineligible for one year. The board added the notation that "there will be no exceptions to this rule." The proposal caused much discussion. Coaches ol small schools especially in the plantation districts,'contended that most of their players moved from one district to another almost every season, and if those boys were declared ineligible, it would rob their schools of football teams, and those boys of a chance to play. Proponents of Ihe proposal said it, and the semester rule, would eliminate 115 per cent of the eligibility squabbles. J. L. Pratt, superintendent of Malvern schools, said it would do more to clean up Arkansas athletic conditions than any other move that could be made. Suggesting that bis school "is unable to buy our athletes, we have to grow them, and we are in favor of other schools having to do the same thing." Jiimcs Abraham of Lonokc said unless a boy was a better athlete than his father was a farmer, the family probably would nol have lo move around each year. If a player, ineligible in anolhor state moves lo Arkansas, he will be ineligible here, under a new rule. It was adopted because it was said lhal many players from Texas had moved into Arkansas to participate in ath- lelics. Texas has a 1'J-yeur age limit foi high school uthleles. Sunday Games Disproved The group rejected u proposal to prohibit Sunday football, but adopted resolution disapproving of Sunday games. Member schools hereafter will no 1 be permitted to play football games earlier than the Friday following till, formal opening of .school. A proposal to reduce the age limit for high school participation from 21 years to 20, was rejected. Z. M. Go/a of Arkudelphia, was elected president for a third consecutive lime. Mr. Goza will be chairman of the Executive Committee. Ben Williams, of Ashdown wiis re-elected on ihe Executive Committee. Other members arc James Abraham, Lonokc, and R. H. Moore, Joncsboro. i Hope Star WEATHER. Arkansas—Increasing cloudiness, probably rain, in northwest Saturday night a»d Sunday, and in northeast and central Sunday; colder Sunday.

Approximately 337,000 qualified voters are listed, Goff said, but lack of local contests for office will keep nearly half lhal number away from thje polls.

By the happy coincidence of the boat drill, everything was in readiness for a quick rescue.
