Only one item from the collection lias "been placed on view in the Museum. Addition of the Kins collection of Indian relics definitely places ttic University of -Arkansas Museum among the lop ranking .state university imisoiirns of the country so| far as Indian culture Is concerned, accordiim to professor Dcllinger. The institution lias louse been famous for its i-re-Colmubian relics of the lower Mississippi Valley, an-.! virtually every major museum of the co'untry lias • sent scientists here from time tn timo to study ihe material preserved in the Institution. Approximately 75 per cent of the material purchased Irom Colonel and Mrs. Kinn is from Arkansas, but Included in the collcctic-i (ire the famous "Red Stone Pipe of Spiro, 11 which was found near Spi- vo. Okla., just across tlie line from Arkansas, and approximately 300 nieces of Mimbrcs pottery, which is found in only one small valley near Mimbrcs, N. Mcx, and which I is prized bv every museum fortunate enough to obtain pieces of it. The "Red Slone Pipe of Spiro" is ronpsidcred the finest piece ol prehistoric stone carving ever found north of Mexico. It is the timirc of u heated Indian, carved from red stcne and highly polished. There is a receptacle in the l>a-k. where inccnsr was burned dnviiv; crrcmnnlnls. The carving is about 11 inches high. So important is the "Rrd Slonc Pipe of Spiro" considered by avfh- eologisls, one museum which bor- Oridnnl name or Voiltalre, Fiend) author, was Francois Marie Arouct. viow tn the Museum. 'Also Included In the collection are eleven flint ceremonial knives found in Arkansas—the only ceremonial objects ol that type ever found in this .state. •Approvlnmlely 1500 pieces of pottery found tn Arkansas form, part of the collection. Among them are some of the most beautiful pieces of Indian pottery ever found in this nation. The entire collection was purchased by the University of Arkansas at a price far below what it would have brought had bidding lor it been opened to other museums, according to Professor Dcll- Inger. It was offered to the Uni- vcrslt yof Arkansas first, however. as Colonel King expressed belief that as most of it had come from 'Arkansas originally It should be permitted to return to this state. Included in the collection arc numerous relies which the University of Arkansas tried to obtain at the time of their discovery, but on those occasions the price was in excess of what the University j was able to pay. The University of Arkansas did not obtain any portion of Colonel Kings famous collection of Kentucky Indian relics, which has been opened to the public in u lar^e restoration project near Cairo. Emily Post Challenged On Men's Ring Ruling CLEVELAND (UP) — George Bciiltlc, veteran Cleveland jeweler, doesn't agree with Emily Post on the subject of wedding rings In her most recent edition of the Blue Book of Social Usage. Concerning the topic "on what finger slTJld a man wear a wedding rh>B," Miss Post says, "If the bridegroom wishes to have a ring, the bride buys a plain gold band. If he cares about smartness, nc wears this on his little finger." "Ridiculous," B'cattie said. "In 38 years of selling rings, I've never lilted a man for his little finger. It's the third finger, left hand." I He said the custom sterns from I an ancient legend which presumes . there Is <i single blood vessel extending from the tip of the third finger to the heart. Emily Post ruled In 1935 that a man's wedding band could be fitted for cither the third or little linger, according to his preference. Just Arrived! 1 New 12-ft. Double .

Wliy do union leaders refuse to arbitrate wages? It is the fair way to settle this question, SOUTHWESTERN BELL fair to employees, fair to the company, and fair to the public. »-&S'!lMfe ! Is arbitration refused because of trie union's insistence upon bringing about negotiation on a national basis through the National Federation of Telephone .Workers? *,>,•,. The National Federation apparently wants nation-wide power over an essential public service without any responsibility to the public for its acts and the Southwestern Union continues the strike in support of this objective. •' .'. • The Southwestern Telephone Workers' Union is the recognized bargaining agent of the employees of this company. All bargaining has always been with that organization. All contracts have always been made with it—not with the National Federation of Telephone Workers. But now the union tells us any agreement they make to settle the present strike must be approved by the'Na- tional Federation of Telephone Workers. 1 The strike could end if union leaders would agree to the company's proposal to have matters affecting wages arbitrated. Other items could then be negotiated. TELEPHONE COMPANY BEN WHITE & SONS GENERAL CONTRACTORS MAIN OFFICE— NO(tTH TJENTH \ Phone 3J5J Come To: U-DO-IT LAUNDRY With Those Dirty Clothes Open 7 a. m.
