The car in which Miss Lucy was being driven across the campus by Bennett and Sarah Healy, dean of women, was spotted by members of the mob. Widows of the car were smashed by rocks, and Bennett narrowly escaped serious injury.

He added that he hopes Alabama officials Will be able to settle it without "interference" from outside. Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS. 111., I,F«—USDA — Hogs 8.500; strong to higher; bulk mixed U. S.

The Unhappiest Person in the World.. Is the chronic akholic who ha? a perpetual yearning to enjoy life as he once knew it, but. can not free his life from alcohol. He has a heart-breaking obsession that, someday, by some miracle, he will be able to break from this habit which has enslaved him. Alcoholism It's victims usually are forced to wage a losing battle .... not only against-the ravages of the ^diseases, but also' a'Minst'tlic ignorance of a society which refuses to regard the alcoholic as a diseased person. This ailment lias defied the resources of our best research organizations and medical science. Alcoholics continue to suffer when they fail or refuse to recognize their illness because of the stigma which has been attached to its name through centuries of neglecting to treat alcoholism as a disease. The fact is that alcoholics, for reasons yet obscure, have lost the power of choice in drink. His will-power becomes non-existant. He is unable to remember the price he paid for his last period of drinking and he is without defense against the first drink. And though there are institutions and individuals which sometimes offer aid to the alcoholic, it remains for the alcoholic himself to find the answer. ' Alcoholism is an illness, an obsession of the mind coupled with an allergy of the body. It is a shattering sickness—physical,.emotional and spiritual. How to control the obsession which compels him to drink against his will is the problem of the alcoholic. This message is directed only to those to whom alcohol has become the biggest problem in life. IP ALCOHOLISM is a serious problem to you and you want to stop drinking and are willing to let some who have had this problem explain it to you .. • write Box 873, Blythevillc.
