The Spanish republic split from within and was re- (iucLMi U> a practice grounn for future wars. The Chinese republic, nevei well-integrated, is on the ropes before the- Japanese invaders. Hungary Yugoslavia, Rumania, Bulgaria, Greece, never really democratic, now incline toward the totalitarian system. Twenty years after the World war "totalitarianism" has democracy on the defensive. This new idea of government is not mere dictatorship. Thai is old. But old dictators simply used military force to make people do ns they said. The now dictators work on people with propaganda, which they contro exclusively. Thus a 1938 dictatorship may actually be "popular" in the sense that it is the people's will. But that will has been manipulated so tha it has had no free choice. With this goes the "totalitarian" idea (hat one party, one group, is the instrument that governs for the grea mass of people. The people's duty i: to vote "yes" at intervals, and do a.< they are told. The state, the government, is like an idol to which all bow down. The idea is that if the state aj a whole, and people as a mass, arc al right, then individuals will be al right. Sheep Pcychology Jn country after country the people tired of worrying and thinking abou how to ru nthcir affairs, have let their liberties slide into the hands of those who said "Let us do it. We will sec that you are taken care of. Stop wor rying. Follow us!" The difference between this idc t and tho American idea of domocracj is plain. Americans have always be lieved that the state is merely arrln strument created by the people to d<? certain tilings fo rthem. The welfar and rights of the individual person arc what is important, and if most indi divdual persons are nil right, then the state will be all right. Americans have also believed in definite limits on the state: they have a written constitution providing that Arkansas Lagging on Bidsjor PWA Four Millions Allotted, Against Tentative Quota : of 10 Millions WASHINGTON-W-Public Works Administration non-federal project al- olrnt-nts to Arkansas under the 1938 program hnvc fallen considerably bc- 'ow allotments to neighboring states. Arkansas Senators Caraway and Miller have mode repeated requests for PWA authorities, they say, to speed action on pending applications For projects in Arkansas. They have been handicapped on a number of projects because of a stele law prohibiting hoiul issue votes except on regular election days. The latest summary of PWA allotments, as of October 12, shows n total allotment in loans and grants to Arkansas of $3,!)DG,OGG. Subsequent allotments boosted the total slightly above $-1,000,000. Senator Caraway says the PWA originally fixed Arkansas' "equitable share" of this year's funds tentatively at $10,000,000. A break-down of the PWA program for Arkansas shows the total estimated cost of approved projects as J5.804.598, of which amount $1,868,532 has been supplied by applicants. The- 43 Arkansas projects approved at the time the summary brought $1,373,363 in loans and $2,022,703 in grants.

General Election (Continued from Page One) tics arc at stake, both Republican and Democratic. Bitter fighting in the Democratic party primaries and between C. I. O. and A. F. of L. forces have raised Republican hopes of winning tho stale back after its first lapse from Republicanism in decades. If these hopes materialize, Judge Arthur H. James, Republican candidate for governor, appears certain of a better than favorite son role in 1940. Election of Governor Earle to the senate would be almost as certain to revive the Democratic presidential boom for him which started when he was elected governor. Another 1940 Republican candidacy will be in the making in Ohio if Robert Taft defeats his New Deal opponent, Senator Bulkey, for a senate seat. Ohio is always a pivotal state politically.

What had she done? Whatever had egged her into throwing that lie into Jack's teeth? Because Dwight hadn't asked her to marry him at nil! He'd boon attentive, and he'd kissed her. But he had never proposed to her. Jack's eyes showed his hurt. He said, "I'm sorry, Judy. I—I didn't know." His shoulders .seemed to sag. She felt sorry for him. She knew he thought of her an a litllo sister to be protected, and he'd meant well, warning her of what he thought were Dwight's intentions. But she couldn't help saying, "You're j a u n d i i; e d, Jack. You're unhappy on your phmc carrier, you want to get back to Lakehurst, and it's soured you on everything. You see Dwight gutting along, in lino for promotion. and it—it gets your goal, I RUCKS." His eyes flushed. "That's not .so! I wouldn't be jealous of a—ol a rank-worshiper like him! I'll get ahead on my own, without help from any relatives in Washington or any admirals, either!" / She hadn't mean't to hurt him, She said inadequately, "Forgive »ne.

She gets in at Lindbergh Field Saturday at 10:15 in the morning. I'll call for you at a quarter of ten." Illustration by Henry G. Schlensker. "Lieutenant Hanley TVQS just leaving," said Judy evenly, He had Test in Michigan Michigan affords, in Gov.

Mr. Roosevelt has bestowed his blessing emphatically on Murphy, causing speculation on Murphy, causing speculation as to whether the governor'mlght'hbt figure in Roosevelt 1940 activity if he wins. Third Party Faces Crisis In Wisconsin the Lafollette National Progressive'party movement is meeting a critical test. LaFollette's defeat for re-election in a situation confused by a three-way battle between Progressives, Republicans and Democrats would be a setback for the movement. It would cloud the governor's hopes of third party action in 1940, and his, own chances of being or naming a Progressive presidential nominee that year. Farm Voles to Decide Program Turning to the farm belt area, House elections become the chief yardstick. Democrats now hold an overwhelming majority of House seats from the 12 states comprising the farm belt of the interior as distinct from the cotton states of the South. Those interior states are Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North and South Lakota, Nebraska and Kansas. Any definite shift in farm sentiment his year as reflected in House elec- ions in those states would be a major jolitical development, as would the uloption in any of the Pacific coast itales of initiated curbs of jurisdic- ional strikes. Ashdown here are certain things that even the {ovennnent can not do to a man. further, all men must have equal •ights before the law, and no group or )urty ought to have rights which all lo not have. And still further, that a better re- iuU is obtained if all may speak theii views freely, all listen freely, and then lecide freely what ought to be done. Between these ideas and the new idea of "totalitarianism" there is a great gulf. Both sides are evolving changing. The dictatorships, having in some l*irt solved the problem of how to ge everybody enough to eat, are facet with a new problem: how to permi their people to live as decent, dignifiec individuals with rights and a private life of their own. And the democracies are faced will tl\e problem of how to adjust their eco nomic affairs so that all may eat and be secure, without sacrificing the free dom, the personal dignity, the indi< vidual living of their citizens. So, 20 years after the Armistice, the world boils and surges with those con flicts within countries, and betweei countries. The new ordor in international diijjoinacy—"Power PoU- tics." They're J W st Two Big Happy Familie PANAMA CITY, Fla.— (JP) —Th Boggs girls like the Quickel boy. That's what the folks here decide after four of the Boggs sisters—Bessie Delia, Carol and Ellen—married fou of the Quickel brothers—Warren, For rest, Guy and Emert. The first couple married in 1920 an the last in 1937. The phone rang again. This time it was a girl's voice, and Judy waited. But it was not one of the gossip brigade, it was Diane Bell, who had just had a new baby. "You never have time for me, Judy! Come on over and sec little Billy,».he's the darlingest thing! Give the boy friends the go-by for one day. 'I'll"fix""you something good for lunch." "I'll have Guam salad," said Judy. Diane, as a very young girl, had lived in Guam, where her father was in charge of the station, and she was alwnys boasting about how .she hud learned to make meals with practically nothing from tho States— strictly island fare. Her Guam salad was famous. It was made with California avocados. It was only a short distance to the Bells' small cottage. Bill Bell was a flyer in Jack's squadron. His pay, even with flight pay, had performed nobly in comanding the services of a famous obstetrician when Diane had this baby, last month, but without the savings that Diane had engineered so gamely in this little bungalow, they couldn't have made it. * * * J UDY parked her car. In the doorway, Diane was standing, the baby in her arms. Her dark eyes danced, her ivory .skin glowed. "Darling!" said Judy. "You look Wonderful!" "Never felt belter in my life." Judy remembered the pale, wan of a cleft in his chin. something ,to tell her! "Judy," said Dwight, his eyes on when I doubted you'd ever be the same!" She peeked into the opening at the top of the little bundle of blankets. "Oh, Diane, isn't he little!" "What'd you expect?" "But lie's so sweet! Oh, oh, look, he's smiling at me." "He's merely well fed, and smiles because his tummy feels good. I keep telling Bill that, but he doesn't believe me." She put the baby in its crib, pointing to the stuffed elephant on the dresser. "Bill, the fool, thinks that's just right for our child. At the age of one, he will probably present him with a Navy bomber. After Diane had told her all about how marvelously Bill was taking her absorption in the baby, "Even washes diapers when he gets a minute!" she asked about Judy. "You, my dear, look peaked." "Slightly," Judy admitted, "What's the matter?" "Nothing." "Listen, my girl, you're among friends! 11 But the words stuck in Judy's throat. She couldn't tell her. Tactfully, Diane changed the subject. She went "on some more about her precious Bill, and her wonderful baby. "I only hope they don't transfer him off to some ungodly place where the climate will be bad for the kid. Think of me, with a baby, shoving oft in the good o'd Chaumont. Or daycoaching it across the continent!" "They won't, I guess," Judy said. "Flyers stay put pretty much, except for battle maneuvers." "Yes," Now it came, the sudden, lost feeling. The dive of her heart, and the quick, pounding blood al used to it, when you have one o: your own." Judy said, "You're going to pu that funny square on him? ! thought they used 'em triangular.' "You're behind the times, Tri angles are old-fashioned." But her eyes were on Judy's face. Judy got the oil in the little blue jar. "I'm glad to see you're using my gift," she said. "Without 'gifts, my son and heir would be naked and cribless," said Diane. She kissed him on the top of his fuzzy little head and put him back in his bed. "On to the kitchen," she said, picking up an old cap of Bill's which was on a chair and putting it in the closet. Judy said suddenly, as she sat at the table while Diane reached into the cupboard for a can, "I guess I'll tell you. I've got to tell someone, or burst!" Diane said, "Shoot." "Dwight Campbell ..." "Yes, I know. He's getting married." Diane looked at her narrowly. "But I thought—I thought you—well—just an old married woman, matching you up with the best bet on the lot. Darling, I thought it was Jack Hanley!" "Jack?" Judy was startled. "He's just a friend. I—I never—" She got hold of herself. "Well, I was a fool, I thought because Dwight took me dancing a few times—" "He's the kind who licks boots and campaigns for promotions. He's kind to admiral's wives and the dumpy daughters of Naval Af- Oldsmobiles Win Favor of Public v]ew Mechanical features, Comfort, in 1939 Models The three new 1939 Oldsmobiles, in- roduced last week by Oldsmobile lealers throughout the United States, lave won instant favor with motorists very where, according to C. L. Mc- !uen, general ta'anager of Oldsmobile. 'he new Oldsmobiles are listed as th,e lories "Sixty," a six cylinder car in lie low priced field, Series "Seventy" n the popular pirced field, and the Series "Eighty" in the medium priced ield. "The combination of Oldsmobile's 939 streamline styling, and the introduction of entirely new mechanical 'ealures to .produce a new high in »d- ng comfort and readability, has resulted in public acclaim nationally, and as a result has greatly stimulated our new car sales," said McCuen. "Oldsmobile dealers in every part of the country are reporting sales of our new cars in greater volume than we originally anticipated," he added. ."This heavy demand has necessitat- d an extra shift on production and additional men are being re-hired daily. Our objective i sto build an" proximately 1,000 cars per day. "Our new 'Sixty,' a big 90-horsepower, six-cylinder Oldf>'m;obile in the low priced field, has been particularly well received. The new six-cylinder 'Seventy' and the eight cylinder 'Eighty,' offered this year at greatly reduced prices, also figured very strongly in lates sales reports. Dealers are being stocked with new cars in practically all body types as quickly as possible in order to faciitate early delivery. "Every indication, including reports from our 3,500 dealers, points to a big year fo rthe industry. Oldsmobile, with its broadened coverage of the market, looks forward to one of the best years in its 42 year history."
