Although primary election day Is little less than six months away, Ihe Mississippi county political pot U beginning to bubble with an unseasonable warmth. Only a few candidates have made their formal announcements, but many others have stated, cither publicly or to their friends, that (heir hats will be in the ring at the appropriate time, and present prospects are for two or more candidates for all but two county offices. In the city of Blythevllle, where a city clerk, city attorney, and three aldermen are to be chosen, little political activity has been displayed as yet, WaUh Treasurer Race In Blytheville. al least, it seems likely that Interest will center on the race for county treasurer. W. W. Hollipeter, who will complete four years 'of successful service as clerk of the circuit, has announced himself as a candidate for thc treasurersrip. Some months ago T. J. Mohan let it be known that he would be a candidate for 'this office. Both men are old residents of Blythevllle, and both are among thc most widely known and most universally respected men of the county. ' knottier potential candidate for the treasurer's office is W. W. Cox ot LeachvlUe, school teacher, who has been circulating school boards and other citizens to sound cut puBllc sentiment on his proposal "to seek the office under an agreement to turn back to the County treasury all fees In excess of a salary of $3,000 per year and the T elcpeme* Tof the off ice. >r th«>offi|<:«.pf sheriff, and col- it -usually 'the most sowfcht sft- er of county 'posts, W. W. Shaver of Manila, serving hU first term. Is certain to be a candidate for reelecetion. Roland Green, who is completing four years as county treasurer, has made no announcement Of his Intentions, but It Is common talk, denied neither by Mr. Oreen nor his frienfls, that he will be In the race for sheriff. Most 'of the candidates, as has been the .usual case in recent years, apparently will be from the Chlek- asawba district of the county, but at least two men from the Osceola district are certain to try for political preferment. J. S. Dillahunty o! Oweola made his announcement today as a candidate for assessor. He will oppose Jim Fowier, the Incumbent. P. W. Potter of Osceola, deputy circuit clerk for seven years, will seek the clerkship. No formal announcement of a candidate against him has been made, but it is known that friends of Billy Gaines, former county court clerk for four years, 'are urging him to make the race. Gaines has demonstrated his political strength on more than one occasion, and was a strong contender for the 'sheriff's office In 1928. •Gladlsb. to Have Opposition Although he has not made official announcement It Is regarded as certain'that S. L. Gladish of Osce ola will asic reelection as district prosecutor. W. Leon Smith of Blytheville, who served as deput> prosecutor for four years under Zal Harrison, will oppose htm, friends of the'latter say. Two county officers whom present prospects indicate will have no • opposition for reelection arc George W. Barham, county Judge, ond Mrs. John Long, county court clerk. Both are now serving their first terms and there has been no serious talk of anyone contesting their places. Neither has any candidate come forward in opposition to E. E. Alexander, who is expected to be a candidate to succeed himself as Mississippi' county's representative in the state legislature.

WASHINGTON, Jnn. 21 (UP) — Switching around under the pur- suasioiis of President Hoover's law enforcement commission, the house Judiciary committee decided today to sponsor two vital measures In the commission's prohibition re- iorm program. For ycirs the committee has bottled "up ihe proposal to enlarge the powers ol the U. S. cornmls- fioncrs so they can try prohibition cases without a jury. H also has failed to act on the proposed amendment of the Jones law to give ihe commissioners broader powers to inflict lighter punls'.i- ment for "casual and slight violations."

At the conclusion of his arguments Chairman Chrlstopherson of the committee announced he would with- in'a few hours Introduce two bills In the house to ca_rry out the commission plan. He said he had been convinced by Wickersham and another commissioner, Roscoc Pound, dean of the Harvard law school, that the proposals are "absolutely cnstitutional." "The winning over of the committee clears the road -for consideration of the moet criticized ihases of the commission plan, jut stormy debate is expected In The primary purposes of the con-# ference are: To Take further steps in world disarmament, a policy to which the powrrs wtrr committed by the Treaty of ^'trial lies. To achieve equality or parity of nival forces' ot Great Britain and United Stairs and pretenl a race for naval supremacy that might ronrelr- aMy result in war.

So he began asking Question, and he learned she was upset about Captain. Captain 'had been romp- Ing about and had Injured a leg. She hod taken him to the best veterinarians she could find and they had been unable 'to cure him. The kindest thing, they said, would be to shoot him. Dr. Condon promptly decided that the best way - to -cure Mrs Gross was to cure Captain first. And 50, one morning, a regular ambulance came tip to thc Gros? home. Captain was put ' on 'a stretcher, taken to the ambulance and whisked off to a regular hospital—not a pets' hospital, but a real hospital where human beings were treated. There he was lugged straight to the operating room and put on the operating table. Dr. Condon, assisted by trained nurses who gave Captain an an- aesthetic and counted his heart beats, performed the operation. Captain was under ether 22 minutes.

Before the conference met spm of the most dangerous questions had already been settled In preliminary conversations during thc months since the conference WM called. In their Intimate talks ,on the banks of the Potomac, and the Rapldan. Premier MacDohald and President Hoover laid the foundation for solution of many of the disputed points between their.coun- tries. The most Important was that Great Britain conceded to the United Slates parity in,all categories of warships. In the course of conversations between Ambassadors during many weeks, be fore the conference, tho ground was partially cleared anc the main points of disagreement were defined. Faints ot Disagreement So far as they were known before thc conference the principal points of disagreement were: The cruiser tonnage of Unltei Slates and Great Britain.
