THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1. 1908 BLYTHBVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWi PAOEITYI Education Conference Very Vague On Crowded Classroom Question By JAMES MARLOW Associated 1'rcss News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — There were stron g indications today that the President's White House Conference on Education will rccommen d federal aid to the nation's schools, at least for building new classrooms. But If it's as'vague on that as', it was yesterday on .why there are j not enough classrooms, it will' leave the question high in the air. Federal aid for schools Is the hottest question facing the men and women who cnme here from the 48 stales and territories for this meeting,' which ends today. It's possible they'll explode over it. But they were far from explosive yesterday when they sat around 166 tables, exchanged ideas on why) they don't have enough schools, and then approved a report which was a consensus of what they lelt and thought. Limff-Wimicci That report was so careful, and' long-winded, it looked like a diplomatic pronouncement by the State Department at one of those thnesj when it wants to make a statement for the record without being very positive about anything. This was what the report said; "No state represented has a demonstrated financial incapacity to build the schools it will need during the next five years. But, with the exception of a few states, none of the states presently has plans which indicate a political determination powerful enough to overcome all of the obstacles," Boiled down, this said: No state represented at the conference had shown it couldn't afford to pay for the classrooms it needed. Just because they hadn't shown they couldn't afford it, this didn't mean they could afford it. Then the conference left the door open for itself by adding: another .sentence: Muy Need Help "Some territories and a few states may need outside financial assistance." With that addition the conference got itself on record as saying that if the suites ever got around to building 1 the schools they need, some might be able to pay their own way and maybfi some couldn't. But the report wasn't clear at all when it said, "With the exception of a few states, none of the states presently has plans which j indicate a political determination ( powerful enough to overcome all of the obstacles." Who was being shot at there? j The home-state politicians? Or the people back home for not putting enough heat otx their state and local politicians to get the needed classrooms? Mrs. Haywood Ashabranner and Mrs. Louise Ashabranner were hostesses at a surprise drop-in Party for Mrs. Ruby Smith at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Bedwell, Sr., recently. Mrs. Smith entered the Baptist Hospital in Memphis last week where she underwent major surgery. The honoree was presentd an as- sortmnt of lovely gifts by Mrs. w. E. Lawhorn and Mrs. Arnold Hutton.

Wrong Friend, Wrong Time WEST COVTNA, Calif. IfTl— John H. Wallace entered a bank during a holdup yesterday. He mistook a man holding a machine gun for a friend, walked up behind him and slapped' him on the back. It was the wrong thing to do, at least at that particularly moment. The man whirled, snarled at Wallace and ordered him behind a counter, where four women tellers and several patrons were huddling. The holdup man and a confederate got away with $16.000.
