"The first few yunr.s of service were in the horse and buggy days which was very tiresome and also suffered from cold and exposure in some of the hard winters we had. "In 1910, I began using motorcycle— wore out three from 1910 to 1915. In 1915 I began using autos and have worn out or used approximately 20 cars or more since I have been in the Union Contract at Hope Brick Plant A. F..of L. Contract at Local Industry Ends Labor Dispute The first labor contract between an individual industry in this section and its employes was drafted and signed Monday between the United Brick & Clay Workers (A. F. of L.) and the Hope Brick company. Negotiations were started some time ago when Local Union 699 of the United Brick & Clay Workers called in Frank Kiger, International vice-president and general organizer to assist them. The negotiation co'mmillce was composed of N. P. O'Neal, Earl O'Neal and Morris O'Neal, for the Hope Brick company, and Frank Kigcr, national union official, Willard Anderson, Tom Huckabee, Frank Brazzil, negro, and Willie Boozer, negro. Practically all recent labor disputes concerning the Hope Brick company were settled. The first conference Monday was at 9 a. in., which finally adjourned at artjund 10:45 p. in.

"Our worst problem in the early period was to make the trip as there was not very much mail. But it has gradually grown till today we have a great amount of parcel post as well as daily papers that we did not have then. "I remember I had about two daily papers the first few years, which I think were the St. Louis Democrat. No packages wore mailed to amount to anything before parcel post as the postage was $0.01 for each ounce. A four-pound package cost $0.64 to mail. So we had very few parcels to handle. "Now, we handle a great number of packages and from one to two hundred daily papers. "My route at this time handles about 15,000 pieces of mail per month compared at the beginning to about two or three thousand. "The first few years of service were not very pleasant but the longer I stayed on the better I liked my work. My patrons have been very nice to me and I have enjoyed serving them. "Our working conditions are much better today than in days gone by which I Uiink has been brought about by our organization which has been the means of bringing us closer in touch with the department, and today we are rendering a more efficiant service and enjoying better salary than in days gone by." Mr. Jones, now at the age of 55, will continue as a rural mail carrier. The optional retirement law sets the age at 63. The compulsory retirement age is 65. Hope Star WEATHER.

The report, drafted swiftly after President Roosevelt's plea for peace between the rival craft and industrial unions, approved the principle of labor unity, but declared any settc'm'cnt must recognize CIO's aim of organizing the workers in industrial unions. Roosevelt's Message PITTSBURGH, Pa.—(/P)—The Committee for Industrial Organization summoned its peace committee Monday night into consultation in the wake of President Roosevelt's renewed plea for peace and unity within labor's ranks. Seeking on end to the warfare between the C. I. O. and American Federation of Labor, Mr. Roosevelt in a letter culled upon the first C. 1. O. constitutional convention to leave open "every possible door to access to peace and prigress in the affairs of organized labor in the United States." Chairman John L. Lewis said the letter would be given "earnest and profound consideration." One high official of the C. I. O. who refused to be quoted, said the peace committee would recommend some definite course. The chief executive's message was substantially the same as that sent to Uxe A. F. of l>. convention in Houston, Travel Film to Be Shown Thursday "Mediterranean B o r d e r- lands to Be Presented Baptist Church Plans are going forward for the presentation of the motion picture travelogue, "Mediterranean Borderlands," at First Baptist church Thursday night at 8 o'clock, the Rev. W. R. Hamilton announced Friday. Members of all churches in Hope and Hempstead county, and persons who are not members of any church, are expected to sec these pictures. Many out-of-town people have indicated that they will drive to Hope Thursday night for the showing of "Mediterranean Borderlands." This travel film was photographed and prepared by Rev. W. R. Hamilton. It pictures the narrow crooked streets af Algiera, the frowning aspects of the volcanic mountains of Vesuvius and Stromboli, with "close-ups" of the smoking peak of Vesuvius taken from within the crater. Ruins of ancient Rdm'e and Athens arc shown, with in- itimale studies of the Parthenon. A trip through the Dardanelles to Istan- houl (Constantinople), Turkey, is followed by a visit to Joppa in Palestine. The pictorial journey closes with a reel presenting the' ancient and modern wonders of Egypt. Thrilling incidents, dreamy and beautiful scenes of beauty, and places of historical interest combine to make the program one of rare interest and enjoyment to people of all classes. The countries included in the trip, all of which will be described by Mir. Hamilton in the rapid-fire lecture which accompanies the picture, are: the Azores, Portugal, Algeria, Italy, Sicily, Greece, Turkty, Palestine and Egypt. In short, the prgoram takes one from his seat in America for a restful cruise across the Atlantic, through four seas, visiting ten countries in three continents—all this without the bother of passports, customs inspections, tips and beggars, or the danger of becoming sea-sick or home-sick.

Mrs. Nordean, who with another brother, G rover Cleveland Carroll, have been searching for their missing brother—George Alexander Carroll, World war marine veteran, for 25 years. They received news a few days ago that a man by the name of George Alexander Carroll had been injured in an accident at New Orleans. Believing that he was their "lost" broiher, they drove to New Orleans where they located him at the marine hospital. A joyful reunion took place with the promise that the "lost" brother would spend Thanksgiving in Ark- iuisas, the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Nordean of Okay. The "lost" brother said he had been following the sea for many years after his discharge from the U S. marines following the World war. Two weeks before he was "found" he had signed to "ship-out" on a vessel leaving New Orleans—but the accident, a finger amputation, prevented it.

Eng.-(yP)-The British^- 1 government Tuesday gave urgent con-U sideration to a bold scheme -under A which the United States and the' British empire would find homes for thou-, sands of German Jews seeking refuge , from'violence and restrictive.-la.ws *in Germany.

The press drive was seen as the Nazi answer to the British against the treatment of Jew? in Germany. In Britain, Prime Minister Chamberlain faced increasing signs of dissent within the Conservative party on the issues of German colonial ambi- , tions and rearmament. In Spain, the goverrtmfent reported gains on the Segre front. The insurgents said they had made advances on the Ebro front. U, S. Envoy Recalled WASHINGTON.-OT-The United States government, aroused by the sweeping measures taken against Jews by German Nazis, called its ambassador home Monday night for "report, and consultation." The move wa§,in- tended to convey to the Reich's leaders that Washington strongly disapproves tlit treatment meted out to minorities in GeiWany, < The ambassador, Hugh R, Wjlspn, was directed to start home at once. Much significance was attached to the move, since it is one taken only in cases of outstanding importance. The step doesn't however, mean a break in diplomatic relations. Wilson will confer with President Roosevelt and also with Secretary of State Hull, provided Hull has not left for the Pan-American conference at Lima, Peru. The date of Hull's departure has been moved up one day from Saturda yto Friday of next week. The treatment of Jews, including American Jews, hi Germany will form only one topic of consultation. Many problems are outstanding between the two countries. Americans Suffer Unofficial reports have reached the State Department that property of American Jews has suffered in the current anti-Semistic campaign. No protest has yet been made in Berlin on this score. The last United States protest to Germany regarding Jews was made May 9, objecting to the German decree requiring registration of the property of all Jews, German or foregin. The registration was openly declared to be a prelude to confiscation of the property. The government entered "emphatic protest" against its application to American citizens. Germany replied on June 24 that it would waive application of the registration proce- A Thought All true zeal for God is a zeal also for love, mercy, and goodness. —R. E). Thompson.
