But the old folks tell us that many of the milkmen are really fine fellows. And some of the younger generation say the same thing. Fishing luck of some of our citizens, like Charlie Hughes for Instance, has been so bad that they've ceased to fib about their hick. But some like Bonnie and Ivy have followed the old "go west" adage so well that they write back bigger and better yarns about the rod and reel. Clovls will kill homeless dogs with natural gas. With winter coming on, it is well to remember that humans can "shuffle off this mortal coil" in the same way. Watch those leaks. Musing of the moment: Why are women so "hard on each other?" Frequently we note that women are women's sternest critics in business. . . . But we read that organized women will demand equal rights with men the world over, Including the privilege of working at hard tasks and for long hours. Is this putting pride ahead of judgment? Or Is it a drive for equal wages for , Identical work? Brevitorials fTHE ANNUAL argument has started down here at The NEWS. How do you spell the synonym for registering of high school pupils. We maintain that the word Is "e-n-r-o-1." The conservatives declare that it Is enroll, and cite Webster. Webster Is an amiable old boy, who prefers enroll but permits enrol without penalty. T ITERALLY, the word means "to put on the roll." Kn-roll is logical If you are going to combine words to make new ones, without striving for simplicity and regularity, which we think should prevail. We get the word from the French, enrolement, ?o why change it to enroll? And since the French borrowed it from the simpler Latin, why dc they spell it as they do? There's no accounting for tastes in such matters. TSfK TURN TO regularity or uni- ' • formity as a guide to language making. Consider the word control. Why. don't you conservatives spell it control! ? It comes from the French "controle," which is from a verb form identical with the first example. It means, literally, counter-roll, But we habitually spell it control. ... Or take the word patrol, from the French "patrouille." Why not spell it patroll, if you wish to be consistent? , . . The preponderance of uses of, similar words seems to dictate the following: En- rol, enrolling, enrolled—doubling the . "1" before adding "ing" or "ed". EXCHANGE HAS ONE OF BIGGEST DAY;S OF THIS YEAR NEW YORK, Sept. 11 W)—Bullish fires leaped up In the stock ex- ichange today with a heat reminiscent of pre-depression days. Several issues advanced $2 to $4 a shave and the turnover approximated 2,400,000 shares, making, it one of the biggest days of the year. Big.blocks of Radio common appeared on the ticker tape in the late dealings, recalling in brokerage quarters the hectic days of "Mike" Mcehan and the bull drive in that issue of 19Z8 and 1929 The ticker recorded one transfer of 25,000 shares at $8, and another of 10,000 shares .at $8.25, up 37 cents .from yesterday, while the 'preferred class "B" issue rose $3 to $68 in a lighter turnover. Radio at a little above $8 seemed unimportant compared with the peak price of $549 a share before it was split four shares for one in 1029, but the blocks at least were large. Much of the share list churned about without making substantial progress, which brokers said in the old diiys was a sign of distribution. Several issues rose to new highs for recent years, howeven, irf.luding Westinghouse Electric up $4 to $80, U. S. Gypsum up $3 to $73, Eastman $2 to $158, Chrysler nearly $2 to above $73, Schenley about $2 to around $39, New York Central $1 to close to $27. U. S. Steel and American Telephone rose less than $1. Water Consumption Decreased by Rains Rains last month came too late to affect the ' water department pumping for the month. Meter reading begins on each 20th. The city department pumped 52,894,000 gallons for a daily average of 1,706,258. Since the rains, however, the pumping has fallen very sharply. When the summer lawn rate will be discontinued has not been decided. Nazi Baiter PRESIDENT WILL SEEK TO PLACATE ICKES IN CONFERENCE The decisions of magistrate's courts seldom draw international attention, but that of Louis B.

INCONSISTENCIES are timely with the arrival of school teachers and opening of school. Language should be the No. 1 subject in. any school. No one knows enough of his native tongue. We are,'furthermore, a one-tongue people. By contrast, Europeans frequently know four or five languages, and speak each better than we speak English. . . . School teachers share the general ignorance of our language. They are specialists. Few teachers can write fluently and spell accurately. Most of them are better critics than creators, It is the fault of our national shallow scholarship-^a scholarship which permits such things as chain letters, jaza music, bridge, machine politics, and machine sports to consume time which could creative work. be devoted to :LE THESE remarks may sound critical of teachers, we do not intend them so, by comparison with the rest of the folks.

By schools, the figures were: High school, 600; Junior, high, 550; Horace Mann, 492; Sam Houston, 591; Woodrow Wilson, 490; Baker, 580. It is expected that high school registration will reach 750 by the end of the week. Some students have continued at their Jobs instead of enrolling, but 50 registered this morning. More than 60 high school students are In the system for the first time—more evidence of growing Pampa. Total enrolment in the system last year reached 3,668, but the largest number present at any one time was 3,326. Average attendance for the term was 3,069. There are already one hundred more pupils in the first grade than were listed in the scholastic enumeration. Halfday sessions may' be necessary in several ward schools if enrolments continue to Jncreae, The graduating class of Junior high last spring approximately equalled the number of high school graduates.

Telegrams from the WTCC to local directors and chambers of commerce in the territory contended the Texas allotment is unfairly low and that increasing it to parity with other states "will serve fo qualify our PWA and WPA projects which are now being turned down in wholesale lots." Telegrams from the Abilene chamber'of commerce and business men, supporting the campaign, began going to Washington today. HYDE PARK, N. Y., Sept. 11 (AP)—President Roosevelt went into the role of peacemaker and conciliator again today With Secretary Ickcs, public works administrator, coming here for a showdown on the works relief program. Ickes, who administered the original $3,200,000,000 works plan, appears concerned, according to Washington reports, over the distribution of the present four billion dollar works relief fund. Harry L. Hopkfns, present works progress administrator who headed the old civil works administration, is at the other end of the argument. ' Hopkins believes jobs should be supplied quickly. Ickes believes his program for bridges and buildings should be encouraged. Mr. Roosevelt apparently favors the proposition of making Jobs quickly under the idea that congress stipulated the four billion dollar fund should be spent this fiscal year. He is determined to keep the goal of getting 3,500,000 persons from relief rolls to work by November and end the dole. He also is just as interested, it appears, to have private Industry take up the unemployment slack. There is the rub. The president seems to be giving the latter idea an opportunity to take root. He believes the peak of the emergency is over and private business will pick up considerable of the slack. As for the public works program championed by Ickes, the president stated .last .week he would prefer, to see the construction of permanent structures such as buildings and bridges, but he pointed out he was confronted by the task of providing jobs immediately. So far as public buildings and other permanent structures are concerned, he said he must insist that these plans toe submitted immediately with provision for a quick start, Prank O. Walker, the third member of the works relief triumvirate, also was due here today. Hopkins was the president's guest over the week-end. The president remarked the other day, after his letter to Roy W. Howard on the business outlook with the declaration for a "breathing spell,", that his job just now seemed nerves.

(/P)_Reichsfuehrer Hitler, In a proclamation read to the Nazi party convention, rapped President Wilson's famous 14 points today, and the delegates assembled from all Germany burst into a bedlam of applause. , "Where are the 14 points of Wilson and where is the world today?" asked Hitler. "The Reich (Germany) is no longer a football and no longer an object of foreign maneuvering, but now is in security—in security not by pacts but by the real power of the nation and by the firm will of its leadership."

His ways here were as unpredictable as they were novel. Senators, who were astonisheid to hear the senior member from Louisiana mispronounce the simplest words, were even more amazed when Long used in the next breath correctly such a word as "petroglyphic." He said "ain't" and "Herod-o-tus" and then would quote Vergil without a falter. Sometimes at night, after lying for hours in bed copying passages from the Bible, friends said today, they had seen him suddenly, in a burst of profanity, decide to tour Washington's fashionable night clubs. He would Ignore messages from leading citizens on occasion, yet his secretaries said he never refused a request for an autograph. He sent autographs despite the fact that he signed his name daily to hundreds of business letters. Once, he received 32,00 letters and telegrams in one day.

(/P)—The newspaper La Tribuna today Interpreted the speech of Sir Samuel Hoare British foreign secretary, before the League of Nations assembly at Geneva as a veiled threat both to the League and to Prance. TALKS WITH PRIEST HYDE PARK, N. Y., Sept. 11. (IP) —President Roosevelt and Father Charles E. Coughlin, the radio priest had a talk here yesterday, it wa learned today. Just What the pr,esi dent and the father talked, abou was'not ascertained. BY JOSEPH P. SHARKEV. ' Associated Press Foreign Staff. GENEVA, Sept. 11 WV-Great Britain threw its whole weight behind the League of Nations' "covenant in its entirely" In a declaration of policy by Sir Samuel Hoarc, British foreign minister, before the league assembly today. At the same time, Sir Samuel [ warned the world that If the league fails to enforce a peaceful settle-. ment of the Itaio-Ethiopian dispute ,he "main bridge" binding England '. to the continent will have collapsed. The bold pledge to back the cove-' nant. "in its entirety" was interpreted as an indication that Great' Britain will not shrink from sanc- ;ions if these become necessary to quench the African blaze. The Italian delegates immediately nterpreted the speech as a British 'threat to quit the league unless the league obeys England." Even the phrase "British black-, mail" was heard in Italian delega- ,ion circles. 'Historic Speech.' The delegates of small nations, lowever, generally hailed the British diplomat's speech with enthusiasm. Said one delegate: "It was not only a historic speech, but the greatest speech delivered before the .eague by a British statesman." The delegate of one prominent neutral country said later the blunt British declaration was not to be' interpreted as an ultimatum, to; Premier Mussolini, but rather as an ; emphatic warning to Italy to think; twice before rejecting the "last- ihope" compromise likely to be offered soon to II Duce. What irritated the Italians .par" > ticularly was a veiled attack 'by Hoare on the fascist regime when,, referring to the dangerous features of government propaganda 1 , he said: "Too often, artificial excitement of national feeling is made the excuse for the repudiation of obligations or for a threat of force." Sir Samuel suggested a peaceful, reorganization of the distribution of the world colonial and raw materials, but it was waved aside by the Italians as "too vague to be interesting." 'Backward Nations.' 'We believe," said Sir Samuel In outlining the position of the British empire, "that backward nations are, without prejudice to their inde- pedence and integrity, entitled to expect that assistance will be afforded them by more advance peoples in the development of their resources and the building up of their national life." The British statesman declared See BRITAIN, Page 6 I Saw • • Ernest L. Norman and J. T.
