It does not seem conceivable thai Blythcville may be forced to close her liijfh school. Because school flimn- cial difficulties are an old story, and because in spite of threats that closing might be necessary the schools have always operated in the past, many people niay believe that the school board's present warning is just another false alarm. It is not. The board is not going to approve expenditure for next year of a nickel more than the district's revenues. Those revenues are not su'Tieicnt to operate the high school: If the people in " .;osc interests the school is maintained do not come to its rescue it will be closed.

MADRID, April 20.

The directors of the Bank of Spain were.summoned into session this morning to draw up a proclamation rescinding the contract with New York and Euroonan bonks for extension of a $60.000,000 credit to Spain. The credit, secured under the monaichlal government, was not accepted by Ihe renublican regime, which expressed confidence that the peseta could be stabilized without II. Another instance of the rapid change of policy of the government was seen in the fact that several Madrid newspapers carried advertisements of protestant churches for tbe first time. The new government has repudiated the policy of the monarchy in supporting the Catholic church and has instituted a policy of separation of church and stale complete freedom of religious views. HOPE.
