LADIES Specialty Shop Politicians Discuss Double Primary Law LITTLE ROCK — (/P) — Appenrent adoption at the November 8 general election of a constitutional amendment which, among other things, would require a double primary system, brought discussion among politicians Wednesday over the question of whether the legislature can amend or repeal such an initiated measure. A section of the state's initiative and referendum amendment under which the double primary amendment was presented to the voters says: •• "No measure approved by n vote of the people ^hall be amended or repealed by the general assembly . . . except upon a yea and nay vote on roll call of two-th'irds of all the members elected to each house of the general assembly." Supreme court records show the tribunal has never been called upon to construe that section. Politicians at the state capital generally frown on the double primary, arguing that the system increased greatly the expenses of a candidate and sometimes results in those who trailed in the first primary uniting against the leaders in the second vote. Some expressed belief Wednesday that a test suit might be brought against the controversial amendment (No. 32) on the ground that its ballot title did not give the voter a clear insight into what he was voting upon. The supreme court two years ago ruled that after an initiated measure had been voted upon the question of sufficiency of petitions initiating the measure could not be raised.

She wanted to, beat against the of their 'complaecnpy; wanted to tell them, the bitter ihings that stirred in her heart. But of course, she couldn't. She knew that in a second. No matter what she said, she'd have to be polite. So, to gain a few minutes in which to get back her self-control, she turned her back to them nnd led the way into the living room. She fixed a cushion on the sofa, and bent to pick ^fallen took. Then she smiled at Marvel. Her face felt stiff,' but she knew the smile looked all right. "How kind of you, Miss Hastings!" she said "I never dreamed you'd want me. I expected, of course, it would be some friend you'd known a long time." Dwight was twirling his cap. TUDY went into the hall, mur- •* muring, "I must tell Mother," and she struggled with her inward l-age for a second before she entered the kitchen. "Mother," she said, "Dwight and Marvel have asked me to be their maid of honor." Her mother's worn, but still beautiful, face mirrored surprise. Judy patted her mother's hand swiftly. "I don't want to, darling," she said. "But you tell them. Tell them I can't." Dwight rose to his feet punctiliously as Mrs. Alcott entered. "How are you, Mrs. Alcott? You're looking well." "Thank you, Dwight," she said. He had called too many times for her to abide by the formal "Lieutenant." She greeted Marvel with that graciousness which was so lovely a part of her social gifts. Judy felt proud of her then. But she was always proud of Mother. The thought came to her that even if Dwight ever reached the rank of she Wanted never to see eithef one of them as long as she lived, * * * door closed. There was silence in the house. Jiidy said, slowly, "Thank you, Mother." Her mother looked at her very directly. "Judy, I wouldn't have permitted it under any circumstances." Then they Went into the living room together, and Mrs. Alcott said, "Come here, pudd'n." That was Judy's baby pet name. Tears stung her eyes. She wanted suddenly to throw herself into her mother's arms and sob. Everything .was so complicated. So cruel., If she could just bury her face in Mother's breast and tell her all the doubts and fears which tormented her. Even now—even wow, as he rode back to the hotel with his fiancee—she loved Dwight so much that it was tearing her apart. She loved his eyes, and the way his hair grew, and the big, blunt fingers that had twirled the gold and silver eagled cap. He had had no right to ask her this thing. Yet she loved him still. Her chest hurt with the bottled-up sobs. She faced her mother dry-eyed and still, but she knew that Mother was not deceived.

"But eyes on him, of course — If admiral, Marvel would never grace his position the way Mother graced Daddy's. Mrs. Alcott was saying, "How kind and sweet of you to ask Judy, Miss Hastings! notice, I—we trip—" She smiled. "Beside, Lieutenant Hanley has been trying to persuade Judy to take a little jaunt to Pensacola, and in that case, she couldn't be back in time." It was polite, meaningless, the refusal that Mother knew so well how to give. But at the mention of Jack's name, Judy felt her hands shake. Mother was so wise. Her kind eyes saw everything. Maybe Jack had even told her, before Judy got home from the shopping trip with Diane, that he wanted to take her to Pensacola. . . . The more she thought of it, the surer she grew. He had told her. (.here's no one else you might ask — ho one but this girl who couldn't come—" ' ' He burst out, "I wanted you, Judy. You've always been so swell to me." i ' "Yes," said Marvel. "It was Dwight's idea." "I'd really have to think about it," sajd Judy slowly. "I'd love to —of 'course—but there are^.-if^ many things ..." Her voice traili off. She despised herself for the coolness of her voice, for the lies she was telling them. But every But she wouldn't speak of it to Mother. They were very close, and yet there were some things that lay between them, unspoken. Judy felt, sadly, that Mother wanted her to accept Jack. Mother had seen Dwight only a few times before she recognized his inherent climber's spirit. And Jack—Jack was the sort of officer Daddy had been, \Dwight and .Marvel left; soon, afterward, murmuring the proper things, and Judy stood at the door %vith her mother and said, "You must come and see us again." But mother asked in a quiet voice. "Yes." The soft hand touched her cheek. "You didn't—didn't try to stop Mm? Oh, Judy!" "I couldn't, Mother!" The rebellion, the frustrated emptiness, came through the cry. "You're so young, child," her mother said, smoothing the soft, pale hair. "So young and unhappy. Poor child. Poor little pudd'n." Her eyes were thoughtful, above the girl's head. Then she said, "I can't see you going on this way, Judy. I can't. "I knew he mustn't leave. So I phoned your father at his office. He will speak to the admiral of the fleet. In the morning, those orders will be revoked. Jack is entitled to shore duty, but he can serve it just as well on North Island. For a few weeks he must stay where he is. You'll both come to your senses." "Mother!" Never before had she known of a time when Mother in any way influenced a decision of the admiral's, or asked him to use his influence with other officers. And to prevent Jack from going he has probably asked ten girls by this time and been turned down. The telephone calls on Thursday are from a |man for daddy, the woman from the store, a neighbor calling to say that the Reading cldub has been postponed. No one calls Jane. Jane says nothing and pretends to haave ahead&ce. "Good tiling I'm not going to the dance tomorrow," she ventures. "These headaces always hang on so." Mrs Brown is suffering more than Jane. All her life she had been able to get her what she wanted or needed. And Jane, herself, has had her world to date pretty well licked. She'has had everything but boys who wanted to take her to dances, in spite of the fact tha Jane is rather pretty and a good dancer. She knew what "It" meant. She knew that some of the girls necked. They called it "pitching a little woo'. That was all right with her. She didn't do it herself. She had been brought up to think such things cheap and wrong. Now she blamed her con- wish I hadn't been preached at SO much," she thoughht, "If dad and mother hadn't been so intent on my being a lady arid a noble one, I might think differently and act the way other girls act." But she knew she wouldn't anyway, in her heart. She couldn't bear to buy her way to parties that Way. "I won't pay. toll," she stormed silently. No Need to Pay "Toll" for Dales Thursday night, late, Bud called. Jane said she would go with him as though she might have said "Yes, I'll go to te library wit you." Bot.Bud and Jane knew that it was^merely a case of left-overs being scrapped to gether. All the alure had gone out of the dance. Then Jane's mother did a wise thing. She called "Jane, dear, I want you. See here. Boys are not all silly. Many of them feel as you do about this petting. Why don't you try being and kind. Don't think T when you are talking to them.

C. Selecman hinted Wednesday that the Little Rock conference of the Methodist Episcopal church, South, in- annual session here, wuold be called upon to consider a matter of major importance relating to Hendrix College, church-supported school at Con- w,c;y. In his opening address to the conference the bishop said "a better day is drawing for the institution." Later in the day he suggested action be deferred on a building program plan "because we have something of much more importance concerning Hendrix College." He did not amplify either statement. The deferred proposal came from the conference board of Christian education, recommending an immediate campaign for funds to construct a women's dormitory and chapel on the Hendrix campus. It was made a special order for business Friday morning. Thd conference elected four delegates to the national conference at Kansas City at which the three major branches of Methodism will be united into one church. The delegates were t J. S. M. Cannon, Little Rock, con-1 ference lay leader, C. H. Hollis, War- j ren, Fred Moore, Pine Bluff; Mrs. J, M. Stinson, Camden; the Rev. C. M'. Reves, pastor of the First church Cam- | den; the Rev. J. M. Hammon, presid- j ing elder of the Little Rock district; the Rev. E, C. Rule, presiding elder of the Camden district; and Clem Baker, executive secretary of the board of education. Bishop Selecman urged the church to take the lead in bringing about a' better day for the South. He told the delegates he "blushed with shame every time I pass houses in which these sharecroppers and tennants live."
