Pearl Buck Gets Nobel Novel Prize American Wins the World's Highest Award in Literature STOCKHOLM, Sweden. — (IP) — The 1938 Nobel prize for literature Thursday was awarded to Pearl Buck, American author of "The Good Faith" and other novels dealing with China. By WILLIS THORNTON NEA Service Ctaff Correspondent The pro-World war world believed pretty strongly in two things: (1) That private ownership of the means of producing tilings, and private management of their production m free competition led to the best results for most men. ® (2) That the freest possible exchange of these goods between countries, with certain tariff restrictions, would make for the welfare of peoples and better world understanding. Both assumptions have been challenged, the first by the rise of socialist and quasi-socialist economies, the second by the idea of national self-sufficiency. First fruits of the World war were the Russian revolution, and the first widespread attempt at a socialist state. Foreign debts were repudiated and foreign investments and property confiscated by Russia without compensation. The Particular socialist sect called the Communists took charge of the experiment. After 20 years the socialist world is scarcely less divided than the capitalist as to the success of the Russian experiment. But there it stands, and the 20 post-war years have thus been the first great challenge to the individualistic and private-ownership principle, at one-time viewed as the last word in progress. The debt-repudiation of the Russian revolution was a mere forerunner of a series of repudiations by the greatest world powers. Germany, saddled wi.th a huge reparation bill, soon'fell down on payments, •lespite several downward revisions. Even French occupation of the Rhineland in 1923 as a retaliation for failure of reparations did not solve the problem. The Germans could not pay (as many economists insist) or would not pay (as others believe), but t any rate they did not pay. Tills disease was catching. Of the billions loaned by the United States to governments in the World war, almost nothing has been returned. Cuba the only country which paid its in full; Finland is the only one Bailey Sticks to Defenseof No. 28 Government Disappointed Over Defeat, Insists Bill Is Right LITTLE ROCK — (K>) — Governor Bailey expressed disappointment Wednesday night over defeat of proposed constitutional amendment 28 to refund the state's §143,000,000 highway bond debt and said he would not include a refunding bill in his legislative program for consideration of the 193!) general assembly. "I know that legislative enactments, which may be changed or nullified by future legislatures, will not accomplish refunding," asserted the governor. "Our bondholders must be assured by some definite action of the people themselves that we intend to pay our'obligations. When this assurance is given, then we can sell our bonds at lower rates of interest." Bailey, who publicly endorsed amendment 28, said lie believed refunding at more favorable rates of interest would be possible if a refunding agreement could be written into the state constitution as proposed by the defeated referenda. He said other states had proved the truth of such reasoning. (Continued on Page Four), A Thought Next to God, thy parents.—Ponn.

Kven after funding the debts, 11 Nazis Strike Jews; Turk Leader Dies Mustapha Kemal, Man Who Westernized Turkey, Dies at 58 BERLIN, Germany—(/P)—Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph Goebbels Thursday issued a brief appeal to the German populace to desist from further anti-Jewish demonstrations. By the Associated Press Angry 'demonstrators took a violent revenge on Jews hi Germany Thursday for the slaying of a German diplomat in Paris by a young Polish Jew. Crowds charged a police guard and plundered shattered Berlin Jewish shops. Seven of Berlin's 20 synagogues were set afire, and, others were burned and wrecked in Munich, Dresden Vienna, Cologne and Hmburg. All of Vienna's 21 synagogues were damaged or destroyed, and Vienna Jews said 22 of their number committed suicide while Nazi fury avenged the death of Ernst von Rath, secretary of the Paris embassy, who died Wednesday. Grief struck Turkey, where President Kernel Ataturk, hard-fisted, hard- living "gray wolf," who forged a new Western state out of the war-crushed ruins of the Ottoman empire, finally succumbed to a long illness. He was 58 years old. In the Spanish civil war, government armies reported advances on the far northern Segre river front. The insurgents said all lost territory had been recaptured, and reported gains in jtjheir dive to wipe out the government's Ebro river salient.

R. Hamm Motor company showrooms Thursday. Details of the 1939 line of Dodge passenger automobiles will be read with considerable interest, because of earlier reports hinting at style surprises and mechanical innovations, and also because this newest of Dodge cars is the company's Silver Anniversary model < to which engineers, style leaders and production experts, stimulated no doubt by extra pride and sentiment, are said to have devoted their utmost skill and effort. The gracefully proportioned rear sweep of the all-steel bodies completely conceals a 27 per cent larger luggage compartment. The • driving compartment is clear of gear shift and parking brake levers. It is evident that Dodge designers have made a plean break with the past and now introduce in their Silver Anniversary Luxury Liner an entirely new, ultra-modern car of remarkable attraction. The new Dodge is longer in wheelbase and wider in body, two circumstances which in addition to contributing to impressive appearance, have been turned to fullest advantage in the . interiors—in wider seats, increased teg and elbow space, and in markedly greater visibility. As if to crown so much newness, the manufacturers are finishing the bodies in a newly perfected enamel in a wide variety of optional colors. In designing the chassis of the new Dodge Luxury Liner, engineers provided a new frame with 6-inch side members. The greatest change is noted in the heavier front end of the new frame, which now accommodates an individual-action front-wheel suspension incorporating special-type tempered, tough yet resilient coil springs of Ainola, the sensational new steel also used extensively in the manufacture of Dodge wheel shafts, transmission and drive .gears, and in many other vital parts. In securing the closest approach to ideal weight distribution, the front and rear seats arc located in the cradled area between (Continued on Page Four) (Continued on Page Three) • i • Roy Anderson III Roy Anderson, well-known Hope YiVan, was in Julia Chester hospital Thursday.
