Hands TEXARKANA, — Four Texarkana 1 men Wednesday bought the franchise of the Texarkana Baseball Club of the East Texas League from R. W. Burnett of Gladewater, who operated the team here the pas ttwo seasons. The sale price was reorted at between $8,000 and 510,000. Buyers were Ned Stewart, prosecuting attorney of the Eighth Judicial Circuit; David Nelson, laundry owner; Leon Kuhn, beer and liquor distributor, and Wayne Windle, stockman and former shorstop of the Waco dug in the Texas League. Mr. Stewart was named president of the new organization. Mr. Nelson and Mr. Kuhn were elected vice presidents and Mr. Windle secretary-treasurer and business manager.

Milner said he 'married Miss Florence Couvillion of Shreveport, his high school sweetheart, at Gretna on New Year's Day after the 1937 Sugar Bowl football game. Louisaha State has a strict rule prohibiting any of its football players from, marriage while they are members of the squad. Only a few months ago a star end Larry King, was suspended from, the grid squad when it was learned he had married. Milner said he met Miss Couvillion while they were attending Bolton high school at Alexandria, where he was hailed as an all-state football player. Mrs. Milner left her job at Waco, Texas, last week to come here to live with her husband.

CHAPTER XXIII TACK HANLEY had been in Sick Officers' Quarters a month now. His arm had knit beautifully, his ribs were almost well. He could sit up in bed, but he liadn't been in a wheelchair yet. Commander Sloane believed in doing things slowly. He had said, "You want to fly again, don't you? Take it easy." Judy, -who spent much of each' day there in the white room, was happier than she had ever been before. They talked of their marriage. "A week after you get out, whenever that is!" She wouldn't have a big wedding, like Marvel's. But she'd have all that mattered. Her father, giving her away. Her mother. Her friends she had grown up with, on stations all over the world.. For their honeymoon, there would be a motor trip, and a visit in Virginia with Diane. The memory of Bill Bell still lived with Jack. Bitterly, sometimes. "He _had a child. Maybe it would have been better H I—" "No!" Judy said. "No, no, no! You mustn't talk thai vay. There must have been some reason— something we can't see. You'll do wonderful things for the service." One afternoon when she was getting ready to drive to the hospital, Magda Hamilton came in. "Just got back from Bremerton yesterday. The Texarkana and the destroyers and everybody will be in tomorrow." . She sat on the sofa. "We—we were shocked when the news came about Bill Bell. That's the breaks, L guess." Then she said, "Have you heard what happened up there?" Judy said, "No, I haven't. JVhat?" "Your iriend, Mrs. Campbell," said Magda. "She didn't come at first. Tommy said Dwight was almost out of his mind. Kept wiring her. Then she showed up, a week ago." * * * JUDY was impatient. Her inter- J est in Dwight Campbell and Marvel t was dead, she told herself. They had their lives to live, she had hers. She looked at her wristwatch. "I don't want to be late. Jack waits for me. You know how dull S.O.Q. is." Magda said, "She came in a yacht, with a party of friends. That man we met at her house- warning—Gary Tennant. It was his yacht." She shot Judy a speculative glance. "To make a long story short, she and Dwight had an awful row. In public. On the Texie, to be exact. She said she was going back on the yacht, the way I heard, the story, and Dwight said it was a disgusting way for a married woman to carry on. Something like that." Magda stood up. "I don't want to keep you. Just wanted to say that everybody knows she's left him, and we're all wondering if he'll batch it over in that modern mansion of hers, or stick aboard ship." Judy found no words. She and Magda went out together. But as Magda got into her own car, she was smiling a little. As if she knew what havoc her news had wrought in Judy's breast. Judy turned the key in the ignition, stepped on the starter furiously. What difference did it make if Dwight and Marvel had quarreled? She had forgotten Dwight Campbell was on earth. But had she, asked a small voice inside her. Had she really forgotten? Or had she only been too glad to sink her torment into the ready balm of Jack Hanley's love? He needed her. He'd been hurt. She had worried about him, been grateful ne had come through alive. It was natural that her pity for him should whisper to her wayward heart, trap her into believing it was love. * * * "RUT it was love. It was peaceful, and sweet, and real. She would marry him and have a good life. She didn't care what Marvel and Dwight did! They meant nothing to her! But the image she had tried hard to banish forever rose again. Just the sound of his name could bring it back. His eyes, the way his hair grew. His splendid height. The touch of his fingers, burning on her arm. "No!" she said out loud. And then she found that she was driving past the white house where he had lived with Marvel. It was not on the way to the hospital. How had she gotten here? Furiously, she turned the car, almost careening over a curbstone. She drove swiftly to the hospital. Her cheeks were bright with color. She marched into the bare hall, she entered the elevator. She must calm herself. Jack would be sure to see that she was upset. .. , Me had been reading a book she had brought him. He laid it aside. "You're late!" "You weren't reading! You were just looking." "I can't help it," he said. "I count the minutes. The clock seems to stand still. You try lying in bed, with nobody but a dumb nurse—" "She's a pretty nurse." "She hurts when she starts after those bandages." Then he asked, "What kept you?" "Magda Hamilton, back from Bremerton." "Oh." "Gossip, that's all." She would not tell him about Dwight and Marvel. She would not. And yet, somehow, the words were saying themselves. "Marvel Campbell arrived in a yacht. Gary Tennant's yacht." "The slick, dark-haired chap?" "Yes. And Marvel and Dwight had an argument. Right on the ship, the way Magda told it. Tom probably told her. The fools!" * * * TACK leaned back among the pil- " lows. "Those two were due for stormy weather. It won't help his personal reputation file any to have stuff like that in it." Then he said, "So that's why you're— you're—" "I'm what?" she asked quickly, challenge in the way she said it. "I was just repeating meaningless gossip." He didn't answer, Sho dropped her eyes. "Do you think it isn't meaningless to me? Do you think I care?" "Judy," he said slowly, "I know you've never really gotten over him. Love's a funny thing. I know how he hurt you, and I know what a cruel, arrogant creature she is. But just the same, you never were able to ignore them. You never wholly forgot him. I'd be blind, not to know. Sometimes, when you sat here, planning the future with me, I thought maybe I was wrong. Maybe you did love me. But don't you see, while D\vight and I are in the same navy, my path and his—your path and his—are bound to cross. I'm not prying, I don't want anything but your happiness. Judy, look at me. Tell me the truth!" Judy raised her eyes. Her lips quivered, but she said steadily, "Dwight Campbell means nothing to me." And even as she said it, she knew she was lying. (To Tie Continued) Wallace Wade, Hitting at TCU, Says Southwest Football Vastly Overrated Wade Is Taking Duke to Rose Bowl Against His Better Judgment—Blue Devils' Coach Spikes Retirement Yarn By HARRY GRAYSON NBA Service Sports Editor DURHAM.—W. Wallace Wade is taking his unbeaten, untied, and unscorecl on Duke ter.m to the Pasadena Rose Bnwl for a post-season engagement with Southern California, January 2, against his better judgment. Wade would bo making the trip un- to hear that Wade is not entirely satisfied at Duke, where in addition to being head conch the Tennesscean is director of athletics and physical education. Unless a certain element that nntag onizes Wade is removed, the great drillmaster insists that ho will say goodby to Durham. As he points out, he no longer has to coach and would have no difficulty in landing a position elsewhere. Wade spikes the report that ho ever intended to retire as coach and devote all of his time to directing athletics and physical education. "But I will never coach where 1 have not a free rein and 100 per cent co-operation," he asserts. Southwest Regulations Made in Own Circuit Wade understood the clamor for Texas Christian in Los Angeles and vicinity It was because of the Homed Frogs' high scoring. But the Duke strategist contends that the reputations of southwest clubs arc established within their own circuit . . . declares that their records outside of it leaves considerable to be desired. Outside of its league this season, Texas Christian beat only 'nVediocre outfits. . . . Centenary, Temple, Mnr- quette, and Tulsa. A year ago the lorned Frogs bowed to Ohio State and ""ordham.

"I wish you newspaper guys would quit calling me about that rumor." said "Pop" after he was called to the telephone "for the 7,1117th time" to see whether it was true he was ready to retire. "This stuff is all so silly," said Warner who made football history at Cornell, Georgia, Iowa State, Carlisle Indians, Pittsburgh, Stanford and Temple. "I've got a contract that runs through the 1939 season and so far as I know, I'm going to be nfere until then. After that I don't know what I'll do. I've been hearing these rumors so much myself that I'm beginning to believe them. Sure, I've got a bad leg that makes me lame. But what of it? t doesn't interfere with my thinking does it? "I'm not in the coaching business for the money I derive from my duties; neither am I staying in the coaching field because I have nothing else to occupy my time. I'm in the game because Hove to coach and get a big kick out of helping players who are almost young enough to be my grand-children. To often have I heard that 'Pop Warner is through. 1 No one will know sooner- than I will when it is time for me to quit coaching. I'll be willing to step out when I feel I am slipping inthe slightest degree. Tempel authorities are equaly emphatic in denying the rumors. "Pop has a contract through the '39 season.

College athletic cabinet was in the market for a new lieac football coach Tuesday to replace Tec Cox, who resigned at the close of his third and most disastrous season Members of the cabinet indicatec several men were under consideration but declared nothing definite had been done. Cox's resignation, which becomes effective next July 1, was announced b; Athletic Director Henry P. Iba. The giant coach's only coiiYment was that Wallace Wade .. . his Duke team risks having its perfect season spoiled and defends its coach's unbeaten record in Bowl. der protest were it not for the fact that the Blue Devil players are eager for the trip to California. Wade, who skyrocketed to nationa prominence with southern football anc winning Alabama teams in the Tournament of Roses, was brought to Duke from Tuscaloosa in 1931 for the express purpose of landing the Blue ant White in the big New Year's Day show on the golden slope. But Wade's slant on the Rose Bow and post-season ga'nYes in general has changed. The Old Man, as he is af been asked to resign."

M. CITY HALL - HOPE, ARK. G, S. Jermgan, State Bank Commissioner In Charge Arkansas Bank & Trust Co., Insolvent MURREY-YOUNG CO., Selling Agent A Book i Diy By Bn**C*«ei» A Million Marks For One Clgnr A good background for the ominous course of current events in Germany is to be found in Hans Fallada's new novel, "Wolf Atnorjg Wolves" (Putman $3). Herr Fullada writes of the Germany of the inflation period; and the terrible sense of insecurity, fenr and depression bred in those years is certainly an celment in what is happening today. In any case, this book follows the fortunes of a baker's dozen of Germans during the era when the mark wcs performing its fantastic tailspin: that time when men paid n million marks for a cigar, when all pensions, invested capital mid fixed income became worthless overnight when the most solid and conservative citizens bowed to Mississippi and was tied by Tulsa. Pittsburgh, with no passing game to speak of, shellacked Southern Methodist at its own game, and the Mustangs were repelled by Marquette. The Southwest Conference's one Rose Bowl team . . . highly-totitcod Southern Methodist of three years ago . . . was turned back by n 'Stanford team that could not win from Columbia and Alabama in the Bowl the two previous years. Wade solemnly believes that there arc 10 southern teams which would finish upon as many opponents picked from all other sections of the country, including the southwest. And after what transpired at Durham the other af]ternoon, mighty Pittsburgh, a'm'ong others, wouldn't be supriscd. were reduced to beggary and the most disreputable made fortunes. The pursuit of happiness was apt to be a losing race, in those days. So it is with most Herr Fnllada's characters; up-rooted cx-(officcrs, land gentry, agricultrual laborer, city floaters of high nnd low degree, nil of them made desperate and helpless by the hurricane of inflation. Knitting the story together are two narratives—the moving account of a love afafir between an ex-officer and a street waif, and the tale of a "putsch" plotted by so-called Black Reichs- wehr. It must be said that "Wolf Among Wolves" is by no means up to level of Herr Fallada's earlier" Little Man, What Now?" It is far too long; it would be a much bettor book if it had been cut in half. But it does present a realistic picture of an era which most certainly has been n great factor in the triumph of Hitlcrism. -»• •• Toy Balloon Floats for .100 Miles HAMPSHIRE, 111.- (/P) _TO settle their argument ns to how far a hydrogen-filled toy balloon would float Horace Pfingsten and Edward Schieshcr turned ne loose on the prairies breeze The balloon was found on the F.
