Tiger-Zebras Game LITTLE HOCK.—Clyde Van Sickle, Little Rock coach, refuses to make a statement on the outcome of the Tiger- Zebra game in the Little Rock stadium' Sautrday aftcrnoor. He merely is "hoping for a victory." "Two seasons have taught me 'my esson," said Van Sickle. "One must stop and realize that the last two games lave been decided by one point. We defeated Pine Bluff, 13 to 12, in 1936, ind they beat us, 7 to 6, last year. That's too close for me. Let's wait until Saturday night." The Tigers went through their second scrimmage Tuesday. The last, and the hardest of the week, is scheduled Wednesday. Defensive work against Pine Bluff plays also will be included in the sessions of Wednesday and Thursday. Looking better is Joe Green, blocking back, who now has a chance to start against the Zebras. 'Suffering a broken collar bone at Shrcveport early in the season, Green played for the first lime against Fordyce last week.

A Thought The narrow soul knows not the godlike glory of forgiving.—Rowe. -© Today few people talk of peace as a decent and permanent way of running the world's affairs. The best we can hope for is peace as a desperate putting off of a war for which we feverishly prepare. Today, talk of neutrals' rights, of barring barbarous practices in war, of adhering to a treaty after it has become a disadvantage to do so—such things are shrugged aside as "unrealistic." But before the World war such tilings were no jobe to thoughtful people. Peace sentiment, and workable machinery for adjusting disputes between nations, had made progress. , In 1914 the Senate ratified 18 of 20 treaties negotiated by Secretary Bryan for peacefully settling disputes. War with Mexico after the Vera Cruz affair seemed inevitable. But Argentina, Brazil and Chile mediated a settlement at Niagara Falls. A Universal Peace Congress had been planned in Vienna in September 1914. The war killed it. Progress of Peace Peace conferences at The Hague had :>een so successful that perfectly sensible people believed protection of non-combatants and neutrals, outlawry of dum-dum bullets and poison gas, nad been accomplished. They felt sure that workable machinery had ieen set up for peaceful adjustment of differences, or at least to confine war within narrow limits. What the World war and later wars have done to these "accomplishments" needs no comment. After the World war, the peace movement took new hope. Among Wilson's Fourteen Points were: 1. Light Service Out for 15 Minutes Gas Pressure Valve Jams, Cutting Off Fuel at 9 p.m. Tuesday A jammed gas-pressure regulatoi cut off the fuel supply at the municipal Water & Light Plant at 9 o'clock Tuesday night and forced a 15-minute suspension of electric service throughout the city, Manager Arch Moore reported Wednesday. Mr. Moore said the main switch wa: thrown to prevent the generators fron exhausting all steam and chilling th water in the boilers. As a result, steam was kept partially up, and within two minutes after the gas valve was repaired by the Arkansas Louisiana Gas company the municipal plant was able to restore electric service.

By the Associated Press The Republican party hit the comeback trail to political power Wednesday by upsetting the Democratic regime in a dozen strategic states, among them Pennsylvania. The election delivered to the New Deal its first major ballot reverse since Franklin Roosevelt was chosen president six years ago. The Democrats nevertheless retained control of the congress and more than half the gov-. ernorships.
