Col. Hobson was a doctor also and did some practice. His office was in the rear end of Sam Br'acy'S Drug Store on Front Street in Block 29 near the middle of Front Row. His printing office was in a small building north of A; Kyle's dwelling,' about where the Oil Mill's cotton gin is now. Col. A. W. Hobson had been a celebrated cavalry officer in the Civil war, as Colonel of the 3rd Arkansas Cavalry. His regiment and the 8th Texas Cavalry fought together and became noted "in both armies.

During lis time away from Hope the material of the Star of Hope was unused and the paper suspended. This plant was finally old to Charlie Adamson, who moved it down to Magnolia, Ark., and thus for a time died the first paper to be published in Hope. However, it was brought to life in 1899 by Claude Mr:Corklc and has been published regularly, up to the present date, and a complete file of the issues, without a break, for the past seventeen years, is preserved in the office of-the paper'and Claude McCorkle . Can -be found there six lays in the week rounding out a ife w e ll spent'in his calling. Story • and' Blackburn The second paper established in Hope had as its sponsors Col. Jim Tom Story and Charley Blackburn. The former moved to Hope from Magnolia in 1874. just after the railroad was run into Texarkana, the latter came to Hope soon after from Homer, La., and they went into the business together. Col, Story bought himself a home on the Block No. 16, Beard's addition, the dwelling fronting the Iron Mountain track on Front street, n'ear the dwelling 9ccupied now by Mrs. Williams, built by S. P. Brundidgp. Charley Blackburn lived with hs father, Col. Black- aurn, who occupied a dwelling about where is now the dwelling of R. O. Bridewell. The name of their paper was "The Hope City Times." The printing office was in the upslai.-s of the Newt Little building which was about the middle of the front row on Block 28, space now occupied by John Moses' transfer office and store .room. The paper was a neutral, independent one, but supported the Democratic ticket all the time. They published a semi-weekly in the busy seasons, and published also a hand-around-sheet, giving markets, sales, etc., a sheet 12x18, which was distributed by Col. Jim Tom Story in person. During the life of this paper Col. Story printed a book of 120 pages, giving the advantages and resources of Hope, several thousand copies of which were sent broa'dcast throughout the United States, and a great, or the greatest, work in putting Hope on the map, and starting her to her present greatness. The paper was a real booster and contained articles each week lauding Hope. It also made a gallant fight for the Court House removal. The hand- around sheet showed that for the years 1875 and 1876 there w'ere HO.OOO bales of cotton shipped from Hope. This sheet also showed that Hicks and Thompson were the biggest buyers, with J. R. Giles, Jake Powell, George Taylor and McNeal close followers. This paper also boosted the new railroadifout to the t town of -Washington- and into the black lands/and Col. Story and his wife were.-of-"the first to ride on this new railroad. The paper was printed on 'a -Washington hand-press. They had'an old-fashioned Ruggles job press (none now in use), and a subscription list of 1,500 subscribers. Judge Calvin Hervey was the-:, first one; Newt Little second. Sam While was the first advertiser and Hicks & Thompson the second. The Hope City Times did the town printing. . .

Secretary of State Dulles, British Foreign Secretary Harold Macmillan and French Foreign Minister Antoine Pinay will arrive by plane Sunday from their strategy meetings in New York. If the Soviet foreign minister follows the recent friendly pattern, there should not be too much difficulty in arranging an agenda for the Geneva conference. The controlled Soviet press, however, has indicated strong opposition to U. S. demands that the future of the satellite countries should be discussed. If this question is pushed, it may prove a tough one. TRAMPLED TO DEATH NAGOYA.

Others think it will increase the feat among them thai American leadership has its eye on war more than on peace. President Eisenhower says the drill has been a good thing, stressing the importance of alertness in such a troubled world. He points out also that it is a demonstration of American abaility to" keep going under any circumstances, something which should deter anyone from thinking of trying a "Pearl Harbor."

"He's boxing at long range, and punching harder." Olson, looking quite large in his sweat shirt and ankle-length tights did seem to be punching with authority, as if he realized that he'd have to do just that against the heavier Moore.

One is lis shoulder muscles through the shirt, as even when he isn't punching or blocking punches he is 'einting with his head or body and wriggling and twitching much as Henry Armstrong used to do as he hunched his way "forward. He boxed six rounds in this work out, two with each of three sparring partners, and only against the third, a burly fellow named Bull Halsey, was he boring in and rip ping short punches in the style which is associated with him. There was considerable clinching in this session, too, and again you felt that Bobo had Moore in mind, as Archie is a stout puncher and there might be times that a good, tight embrace might be the best Mrs. Tom Purvis and children of Fort Smith arq the guest of her Mother, Mrs. J.

Bobo Olson Roughs It Only in Ring By WHITNEY MARTIN ASBURY PAriK., June 17 — 3obo, Olson isn't exactly rough- Jig it, except in the ring, at this easide spot where he is prepar ing for his shot at Archie Moore's ght heavyweight title at the Polo Grounds next Wednesday. Which doesn't mean he isn't eadly serious as he goes aboul lis training chores. It's just that onvention hall, where he mauls lis sparring partners, practically its on the Atlantic Ocean and the ine resort hotel where he stays s only a few steps away on the 'Oardwalk. The ambitious middleweight h a m p i o n probably is working harder than he ever did for ight, despite the fact he has no weight problem such as Moore aces in making the 175- pounc imit. "iNever saw him work like this Legal Notice protective measure. It generally is believed will be up against the most ganger ous puncher he has facea, although his manager, Sid Flaherty, would have you believe Lloyd Marshall could do as well in that department and that Bobo showed he could take it against Marshall. "Marshall connected and stretched Olson out," Flaherty said, "but Olson got up and knock- Fulton J. Sheen's "Way to Happi- Olson [ness." Another is "Beyond An- ed him out Mickey Walker, an artist and prospective restaurateur, watched the middleweight champion perform, and said it was "a good workout." Inasmuch as Walker was w elterweig ht and dleweight champion and fought for the light heavyweight crown, hts sizeup of Bobo's activities might be termed an expert opinion. Mickey, who never weighed more than 170, and who fought heavyweights he had to spot scores of p o u n d s, leans a little toward Moore in the fight next Wednesday, although he admits Olson's comparative youth is in his favor. He believes Moore has the know- how, and that he punches loo hard and too fast. Ordinarily, he said, the heavier .man is the slower puncher, but Moore is one of the exceptions. After the workout Olson visited the Monmouth Park Race Track. Walker was there, too, and we caught Bobo covertly staring at Mickey, Who at 53 carries only 155 pounds oh his five-foot-six frame and who doesn't look at all formidable, and you almost could read Olson's mind. Our guess is that he was thinking that If a little fellow such as Walker could beat good heavyweights he, Olson, should be able to handle Moore, who figures to and say "hello," at least.
