Influence of Conservative Western Democrat May Increase Before 1940 By NEA Service WASHINGTON.— Absent in 'the flesh as he celebrates his 70lh birthday in far-off Uvalde, Texas (November 22), Vice President John Nance Garner is nevertheless very much of a presence in Washington. 0 T ne taciturn Garner, who has hot Roll Call of Red Cross Is Entering oft Closing Waek Mrs. Kline Snyder, Royce Weisenberger Make County Appeal cND, THANKSGIVING Hempstead Must Attain Thousand Members by the Holiday The Annual Red Cross Roll Call enters upon its last week and the teams of volunteer workers throughout the county are making every effort to complete the roll call by Thanksgiving. Mrs. Kline Snyder, county chairman mid Royce Wciscnbcrger, Roll Cal chairman, unite in one final plea to the citizens of the entire county to aid ii putting Hempstoad county over the top Because of the groat amount of money expended in disaster relief during tin past year the HonVpstcad county quoti lia been placed by the National organ ization at a thousand members. In or flcr to reach this number every citizoi who can do so must join the Red Cros during this drive. All persons who have not been give: an opportunity to take out a membership in the Red Cross this year are urged to leave their membership dues at either bank, at the Hope Star, or with any of the workers throughout the county.

How active he may prove to be as a contender for the presidential nomina- ion in 1940 is open to conjecture. But here is no doubt that he commands a iegment of the Democratic party, and .hat he may have as much to say about who is nominated as he did in 1932, the rear he switched his delegates to give rtoosevelt the nomination. The Hope High School Athletic committee at noon Monday decided to charter a special train to Pine Bluff for the Thanksgiving Day engagement between the Bobcats and Zebras. At the same time the committee ap^ pealed for co-operation among Hope fans to ride the train instead of going by automobile in order that the guarantee of $-180 to the railroad would be met. The com'mliltec said the success of-lhe special train to Pine Bluff would determine the ordering of special trains in the future. Fans have not let down the Bobcal team or the athletic committee on othei occasions — although the train to Smackover this year was barely a success from a financial standpoint.

Garncr is never happier than when among the people he knew when he was young and Texas was almost frontier country. Frail As Youth The rugged and ruddy John Garner of the 70th birthday belies the rather frail youth who was born in a mud- chinked log cabin near Clarksville, November 22, 1868. Working at fai'm chores and walking to school, clerking in a general store at 16, failed to develop a .strong physique. By the time he had savod'ttnough to enter Vanderbilt University to study law, a doctor predicted: "That boy won't live to use an education if he gets it." Frail health continued until he had patched together a lawyer's education ut college and by reading with lawyers. For reasons of health as well as of opportunity he moved to Uvalde, and began practice in 1890. The frontier lawyer of that day had to be a cautious and shrewd busines man as well. Garncr was. In less than five years he was prosperous, a leading citizen as lawyer, rancher, trader, and editor of a local paper They tell a sl,pry in Uvalde that Garner was opposed in his first campaign for public office, a judgeship, by the lady who was to become his wife and Students m!ay obtain tickets at the hotel Fascism Doesn't Mean German or Italian Idea Alone Fascism Is Gov.ernmenl Control of Economics, Plus a Dictator DICTATOR, ALWAYS Takes Dictator to Make System Work-Yet Americas Hate Foreigners Are Europe's Fascist powers penetrating politically as well as commercially into South America?

Other Conference Tilts LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—(fl 1 )—One of the most brilliant football seasons in Arkansas' prep school history ends Thanksgiving Day with six games in the state high school grid conference topping off a heavy holiday menu. By far the feature engagement on the program is the annual battle here between the conference leading Little Rock Tigers and the second place North Little Rock Wildcats. The twin-city foes are all pepped up over the clash which will decide the championship. The Tigers have a record of five wins, no losses and a tie. The Wildcats have five wins, no losses and three ties. If the Tigers can tie or beat the North Siders they will be undisputed champs. If the North t Siders defeat the Tigers the Capital Citians would drop to .785 in the standings while the Wildcats would have .822. Hope goes to Pine Bluff, Clarksville to Russellville, Fort Smith to Hot Springs, Camdcn to El Dorado and Forrest City to Blytheville to wind up the conference schedule. Jonesboro entertains Paragould, Benton will be host to Little Rock Catholic High and Fordyce is open to account for the remlaining conference members. Nashville: The Rev. Arthur Terry.

(Copyright 1938, NEA Service, Inc.) essentially German or Italian product and that going fascist means teaming up with Germany or Italy. Therefore one writer tells us that these coun- ries have not gone into a German ;ang agreement, hence they are not 'ascist. The idea that a country may go fascist and yet be utterly hostile to Germany does not seem too occur to them. First, therefore, we must know what fascism is. Fascism is a form of economic nationalism organized to control and direct the capitalist economic system with the object of making it work, unde rthe domination of a dictator. All the dramatic excesses—the mob scenes, the marching shirt brigades, the swastikas, the hounding of Jews, the militaristic jingoism—are merely the external trappings. The central core of fascism is an attempt to make the economic system work by controlling it. This of course is what socialism attempts. But socialism abolishes profit and private property. Fascism seeks to preserve profit and private property. It divides the Qconomic and political life of the nation into two sections. The political life it leaves to legislatures, public officials geographically arranged. The economic life it turns over to groups arranged by trades. Each industry has its governing body chosen within the industry. But this governing group is chosen chiefly by the employers. Labor has a voice but through certain repressive policies that voice is kept very low. Over'this economic life the political officials have ittle to say. But the dictator himself s the final authority of course. The dictator is essential to this setup. It won't work in a democracy. It •Utcmpts minute regulation of the conduct of every business. It is impossible to get compliance unless there is i ruthless dictator. And where you liave a dictator you have appeals to :he basest prejudices and to violence until the dictator has killed off all opposition. By this standard there is no doubt that South American countries are on their way to fascism. In Peru, for instance, Benavides suspended the constitution, surrounded himself with storm troopers, subjected the country to minute economic regulation, adopted numerous social laws— old agu insurance, collective bargaining, three months notice to workers before dismissal with severance pay, restaurants for thl poor, model villages, huge public works programs, military preparation. In Brazil Vargas, by a coup d'etat, overthrows the constitution and writes his own, proclaims the corporative state, goes military in a big way. Because of this sonic writers said he had led Brazil ot fascism. But because he took measures against German propaganda and their antics, others said he had not gone fascist. These latter made the mistakes of supposing that going f.a|pist means teaming up with Qernxany or Italy. Beyond a doubt BrazjJ, is going fascist as are most of Sit-Down Strike Issue Up to Court ?ansteel's Right to Discharge Is Put Before Supreme Court President Vargas (left) of Brazil and Benavides of Peru. Overalls No Bar to the Classroom Young Girls May Wear Them Despite Bluff City Ruling LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — (/P) — Schoo girls in Arkansas are free to wear overalls to the classroom if they desire. Attorney General Jack Holt Saturday advised Mrs. W.

"It might be that in the instant cas the overalls worn by the little girl i the most economical attire and possibly the only attire which she can afford, Assistant Attorney General Leffel Gen try said.
