Immaterial Validity of certain measures tipprov- ed by the Arkansas electorate lust November, including the constitutional Hineiu\mcnl for rcapportionmenl of representation in the general assembly, may be subjected to court attack because the questions did not receive tlie -required publication in advance of the election in certain counties. Enemies of the rcappoiiionmenl amendment, according to dispatches IVoin Little Rock, charge that it was not given proper publication in Poinsett county, while other questions, it appears, were not published in Pnlaski county. The state law properly requires that referred and initiated measures be published in every county of the state in advance of the election at which they arc to be voted upon. There is nothing the matter with that requirement, which is designed simply to make it possible for the voters to know what they are voting on. But certainly the i'ramcrs of the law did not contemplate that failure, through an oversight, to make publication in one out of the state's'76 counties should become' a loophole for the invalidation of a measure that received the overwhelming endorsement of the state's electorate. Poinsett county favored the reap- portionmciit amendment by a very substantial majority. Rut if cvei;y voter 'iu_ the comity; .hm| ^marke'd iiis ballot against it it still would have .carried by a wide margin. La-wyers tell us that it is a very risky business to attempt -1 0 predict the action" which a court will take on any specific question.' But \ve venture to say that if (his particular issue is ever taken into court, the will oft^he people of Arkansas, as expressed in. their ballots, will be un,held against any such technical and immaterial objections. Americanize Menus \ Any American wiu. has ever sal in a restaurant and looked helplessly at the menu with its long list of French phrases, must applaud Congressman JMaury Maverick's new campaign. Mr. Maverick wants French names driven off American menus, and he would start by calling hors d'oeuvres '-dingle doos." "Dingle doos" is a word of his own invention. Us great advantage, he says, is that anybody can pronounce it—which is far from true of "hors d'oeuvres." And the congressman's campaign might well be carried right on down the menu. For the i hungry AmcriUin in ;( restaurant not only has to understand ^what these French names mean; lie has to be able lo pronounce them when the waiter bends over to take his order, and that is something of a job. Brave men slammer aiul stumble and blush pitifully; cowards give up and ask for something simple such as ham and eggs; both groups are entitled lo relief. With "dingle doos" as a slarler, can't we go ahead and get Amcriean- i/cd menus? A Step Backward? 1 \ When the Indian reorganization act of 1934 was passed, it was hailed generally as a great humanitarian move. For generations Lo had been in dismal straits; .he had been neglected if not actually oppressed, and his lands had brazenly or furtively been taken from him. The provisions of the reorganization act 'were,the work mainly of a man who had taken the problem of thu "white man's burden" close to his heart, and made an intensive study of it—John Collier, commissioner of Indian affairs. Now a bill has been introduced in congress, calling for repeal of the act on the general ground that Indians should lie. encouraged lo mingle with Ihe white population, rather limn lo live in (heir own way, us specified in the bill. Since repeal of the act would: only help revive the sordid conditions that once surrounded the red men, it obviously is a step that congress should not take unless carefully considered legislation is to be substituted.

STOW OO OX WITH Till; STOHV CHAPTER XI JJARTHA half expected Gerry Neal to fry to persuade her they could slay longer at Del Monlc, but he held to his bargain. At tho stroke ol midnight he suggested they call a halt so that she might get some sleep before the drive to San Francisco. "I'll get a room for you here," he said. Martha protested that there was the trailer. "Bui you won't want to sleep right at the front steps of Del Monte—and I won't have you driving out to a parking lot on the edge of Monterey," Ncal told her. "Let me get you a room." "Very well. But I pay the bill. 1 Next morning ill breakfast he -was smiling us if at some secret "You might let me in on the joke," Martha suggested. "Sleep well?" "Wonderfully! There's something in tlie air here—and big room was delightful altur llic trailer. But you didn't let me ir on the joke." "I was wondering what you'd say if "i told you lliat I slept in the trailer last night!" Martha stared. "Are you serious?" "Very. I slept well, too." "But why did you do that?" Weal looked at her quizzically. "I jus*; wanted to be sure no one tampered with it—or tried to make away with it." "What made you think they would?" "I don't know, really. But any- low, I was wrong ... what'll we do to the menu this morn- ng?" * * » \TARTHA was too excited at Ihe prospect of seeing Betty again to eat very much. And Neal's mysterious attitude about the trailer further disturbed her. Just at the moment when she had been ready to account him as a normal person, he was unpredictable and enigmatic again! She breathed more freely when they were on the road to San Francisco. Neal took the wheel, and just before noon they began passing through Redwood City and Palo Alto and the other suburbs south of the great western metropolis. At the city limits of San Francisco, Neal insisted on unhooking the trailer and parking it in a garage. "Why couldn't we put both the coupe and the trailer in the hotel's garage?" Betty wanted to know. "I'm taking good care of this trailer," he told her. "Now— where were you supposed to slop for Airspeed Trailers when you reached San Francisco?" Martha consulted the little leaihcr book in which Carrington had written her itinerary. "The Bridge Auto Park," she read, giving him the address. • ," . "We'll clrive there first. Sloss has probably sent you a message." Martha nodded. "I'm sure he has! I was supposed to report to him twice a week. He must know by now that I've been letting him down." "But I don't think," said Neal, "that he'll fire you." At the Bridge Auto Park the manager assured himself of Martha's identity and handed her an airmail letter. Quickly she tore it open, held it out so that Neal could read it with her. "Well," Neal chuckled. "The boss is sore, all right. But you're let off with a warning—and there's your check attached." Martha looked at him, puzzled "Perhaps I was wrong about Sloss, after all." . ' "He's a swell boss, all .viglit. Come on, let's get down to the Palace." * * s TJNERTUNGLY Gerry Neal swung, into Market street^ headed rapidly toward New Montgomery where the Palace to in gray dignity above San Francisco's busy "slot." Alive with curiosity, Martha watched the milling traffic. i "So this is the famous Market street!" I, • Gerry Neal nodded. "You : li'el it is. Greatest little slrcct in the world." •:... He turned from Market into New Montgomery, rolled the coupe bjncath the grand marquee of the Palace. The porlly, pieas- anl doorman welcomed them, and a Irio of uniforms swarmed over Iheir luggage. Al another time Martha would lave been interested in the white marble foyer of the spacious lobby with Its colorful ilowcr shop, ils air of having stood shoulder to shoulder wilh a city that carved Jts own destinies. She would have noticed the famed Palm Court Jusl beyond, into which grand ladies and gentlemen once entered, carriages and horses and all. But Martha hurried directly to Ihc desk to inquire for Betty Haynes. There was an cfttcicnl consultalion of the records, a sympathetic smile. "There's no one registered with that name." Her heart sinking, Martha went to Ihe mail window. While her breath seemed to stop within her breast she watched the loiters Hying under those expert Angers. "Here you are, Miss Britlain." * * « CHE was about to open it when Neal confronted her. "From Belty?" "I—I think so." "Let's open it upstairs. I've asked them lo send your register eard to your" room." In the hallway of the fourth floor Martha opened the'Idler. It was written on Palace stationery, not dated. The message was ly-pe- wrillcn, apparently oh a portable somewhat out of adjustment. "Dear Martha -(she read)—No matler what happens, be sure lo keep to your schedule as Carrington outlined i.l. I'd hoped to see you in San Francisco, but I know it will be soon. Everything is all right, but I can't explain lo you now." The letter was signed "Betty" in typewriter capitals. "Did she ever write to you on a typewriter, signing her name like that?" Neal asked, taking the nofepaper from her nerveless fingers. \ "Y-yes, but how can we l:now she wrote Ihis?" Martha swayed against him. The dismal disappointment of not finding Betty had drained every ounce of her strength. "Oil, Gerry, I— I'm going to the police!" He caught hold of her. "Not yet. Your cue ic to BO m ES if nothing had happened. As if you hadn't the slighlest doubt as io the authenticity of these menage:; from Betty." "But how do 1 know that's the thing to do?" She faced him with nn effort. 1 "I — I've no reason to believe you." ' ' r '' "If you make a fuss now you will probably cause Betty Haynes' death, Martha."

Today typhus fever is treated with the use of scrum from those who have recovered from the condition, tuitl with methods of treatment applied lo each of the symptoms as they occur. Tuiane Party Digs In Ruins of Mayan City NEW ORLEANS.'(UP)—The discovery of R hitherto unknown Mayan city in the dense jungles 01 lh» Peten forest in Northern Guatemala was reported here by an expedition of the d^partnunt ot Middle American Research of Tulane University. Archaeologist Frnns Blcra led the expedition. He was accompanied by Dr. Sylvanus Grlswoid Morby of the Carnjgb Institution in Washington. Dr. Morlcy rustle part of the trip by airplane, but became ill at Flores. capital cf the Peten province. Blom led the party overland from there into the dense jungle. The expedition reported finding hundreds of mounds and lemplcs which have never been .recorded. Bloni said that the Tulane department has the only official index of Maya ruins, where for years, explorers have been registering their finds. The city and many of the ruins are not listed in this record. Read Courier News Wa,.j Ada Footprints Establish Identity ci Infants BOSTON.
