, 1939 JLYTHEVILLE, XARK.); COCKIER. NEWS, Takes Over job In Orient When Admiral Yarnell Retires ' Bif BRUCE. CATTON Courier News Washington , , Correspondent WASHINGTON, July 13. — The State Department doesn't carry him on its bcoks, but one of the most Important of all American diplomats during the next two years will be Admiral Thomas C. Hart, U. S. N. Admiral Hart Is now en route to China, where he will take over command of the Asiatic fleet, relieving Admiral Yarnell. And, although the 'Asiatic fleef' -Is a pretty weak collection of fighting ships, the jcb of bossing it is just about (he biggest job the nnvy has li} offer. That Is because the admiral In command has to be more thim Just a naval officer. He carries on negotiations with foreign powers; has to make quick, ' snur-of-the- moment decisions which might of driving force. Av a command. Ing olflcei-, he seems to Inspire his subordinates with both liking and respect. "It's'impossible to think of anyone doing n belter Job cut there than Admiral Ynrnel) 1ms done," said one high-ranking officer. "On the other hand, It's Impossible lo think of a man in the navy who Is better qualified to take Admiral Y^rncH's place than Admiral Hart." Admiral Hart, hns had a varied nnd - distinguished career; commanded the l\vo submarine divisions which the United Stales sent to Europe in 1017, served on the staff of the Army War College, q:nunandcd the cruisers of Ihe scouting force and served as superintendent of the Naval Academy—where the midshipmen learned why It Is thai, he has a navy- wide reputation ns a disciplinarian. His lust assignment was as chairman of the General Board of Ihc Navy. The General Board is n sort of advisory council for the secretary of the nnvy, and Is charged — among other things—with the task of making recommendations for the annual building program: what ships should be built, how they should be armed, and so on. The navy recently began Install- :'ln^ new high-pressure steam turbines on some of its new ships, and quite an argument developed, some of Ihe older men belnj highly skeptical cf the practicability of the new machinery. Since Hart was head of the General Board at-the time, it gees'without saying that the step was not taken over his objections. UNBENDS WHEN OFF THE JOB Although his reputation as a disciplinarian and his (reserved manner sometimes' make younger officers consider him unapproachable, he unbends when off duty. . He likes people, likes to talk ilh them, dine '.vith them, or play golf or go riding with them. He Is, in fact, considerable more active sccially than the ordinary laval officer in Washington, and goes out a good deal with civilian, :api(al-S "society." Admiral Hart is a keen student FLAPPER FANNY, ^— COFR. mi a mtitmct.uK. r.ti. MO. li. i. 'na.'orr.- B y s y ,vi, PAGE . : Scout. News Boys ~v— .r. -.

S-POSTPONEfi e ys Admiral Thomas C. : Hart easily mean, the difference b'etweei war and peace, and; can't.iilwnyu stop to wireless his .government for orders before .mnking them. 'He also has the pleasant knowl edge lliat, if war dees come, h_ find his lilile command will be right under Ihe gun, with over whelming enemy forces all 'around them and home thousands of miles away.; NO BARKING SEA-DOG '.'.-.: All in all, few American public officials have more profoundly im- pcrlont jobs than Admiral Hart will have for the next two years. So he's worth .getting acquainted with. First of all, he isn't the sturdy sea-dog of popular tradition. He is slightly under medium height, extremely quiet mid soft-spoken, has gray hair, and Icoks substantially younger than his 62 years Officers who have served with him have great respect for his menial ability; say he's a clear thinker with an analytical mind, a phenomenal memory and a great deal Hot Weather Delays Production At C r o w'l Ridge State Park i _ Postponement of the musical comedy "The Belle of Barcelona" originally scheduled to have been pi esenteb^ Thursday night In the amphitheatre of Crowley's Ridge State 'Park at Walcott, Ark. ; was announced today by W. n.

Wonderful How Calofabs the Nausealess Calomel Compound Tablet Makes you Feel so Fine the Next Morning. ' The old-time calomel was the doctors favorite remedy for biliousness or so-called "Torpid Liver," so prevalent in hot weather, but it had some serious drawbacks from the standpoint of the patient. The nauseating and sickening aftereffects and the necessity to follow Jt with a dose of Epsom salts made many of us hate to take it. Now you can really enjoy your calomel, for Calotabs make calomel-taking a pleasure. They give you the combined effects of calomel and salts without the disagreeable sensations When you feel grouchy and bilious take one or two Calotabs at bedtime with a glass of water or sweet milk Next morning your system feels clean and refreshed, your head Is clear, your spirit Is bright, and you are feeling fine with a hearty appetite for breakfast.
