TO BEAR ARMS ft INVASION ' one-sixth of American uni- Ddergraduates state they i.bear arms in case the (,.*»ates Wa6 invaded, accordr i. the semifinal returns of The y Digest College Peace Poll ted among the students of _,fling universities, as publish, m, Somotrow's issue of the mag- Me. >DJ.>the 91,055 students voting on .-US Issue 83.80 ,per cent marked 'their ballots that they would fight i In £ase an enemy invaded the Unit- -'edS States, while. 16.40 per cent voted 'nelg&tlvely. On the policy of "should the United States enter the League of Nations?" the balloting was almost a,tie—50.17 per cent voting for ehtry and 49.83 per cent signifying they Were opposed. • tftsked if they believed the United States could stay out of another great war, the student bodies responded with a more than 2 to 1 Vote, that the nation.could avoid another major conflict. The undergraduates balloted overwhelmingly negative on the ques- tlen of bearing arms "for the United States in the invasion of the borders of another country." Of the 90,281 votes recorded on this section of the'referendum, 17.83 per cent were marked "Yes" while 82.17 per cent •were tallied In the "No" column. . The students balloted 90.78 per cent advocating ."Government control of armament and munitions industries." By a vote of 33,870 to 58,025, they voiced opposition to the national policy that "An American navy and ^••air force second to none is a sound method of insuring us against be- :inB drawn into another great war." On the seventh question of "In ollnement with our historic procedure in drafting man-power in time of war, would you advocate the principle of universal conscription :0f>all resources of capital and labor •imorder to control all profits in time lot' war?" the vote showed 81.98 per 'cent of the balloting for such Universal conscription to 18.02 per cent opposed. •••;. The Literary Digest announces ^/^hat this College Peace Poll is being conducted in cooperation with the ^Association of College Editors who have been stiimtlating a response to >thQ balloting through the medium iof their own under-graduate publications. , • ' |: "The vast majority of the College .Editors," The Literary Digest states 'faults columns, "devoted much space : ; f(nd . enthusiastic writing to clrum- ;mlng up interest in the poll." : : T !'Some were merely tolerant, others ignored. the< poll entirely. But even where the college editors were 'lukewarm to the poll, the undergraduates responded—as in the case .of Harvard, which was topped only by Michigan in total number of ballots returned. - "The • -percentage of ballots re"""turned in the College Peace Poll has ^already ;bsen higher than in the returns' in any past Literary Digest poll. , :'"The volume of returns would seem .to indicate that American undergraduates are thinking seriously and universally about, the course of current events." % a Or Feb. 14 'rticipation in the nationwide "Hello igram to be broad- jetween 10:30 and made at the last ipa post NO. 1657 j America" program, as one of the outstand- ,ip broadcasts of the year, xe the jadio initiation by ler-}n-Onief James E.

A,, was a marked success. Over $43 was raised, which the organization will . use ih purchasing additional equipment for the schools. A small •roup from the Junior chamber of commerce of Pampa headed by Al Gilllland, made th(ings lively thru- out. Others from Pampa included Bob Watson, W. T. Fraser, Clarence Kennedy, John Osborn, and Bert Howell. Musical numbers were given by Jack Benton. Previously the first grade, under direction of Nan Crouch, gave two numbers. Mr. Baze gave two handsaw numbers, accompanied by Carrie Marie Townsend. A spirited contest developed over the young lady winner of a box of candy. Miss Crouch, Miss Townsend, and Mattie Lou Harrison were among the leading contestants. Many young pupils, backed by the visitors, entered into the contest, as did Ralph Irwin, Pete Adami, and D. Partridge. All efforts combined, however, failed to overcome the lead given Miss Harrison, who was backed by Josh Davis, a staunch supporter of Hopkins No. 1 scllpol in any contest. The contest alone raised more than $19. The sum raised brought the total of -the week to more than $60,. as the picture show of Monday evening netted more than $20.

With the closing of classes in mathematics and engines, many men have expressed desire for additional work, and the Hopkins schools will organize and sponsor new classes in oil field science, engines, math,e- matics, and possibly well-pulling beginning-Tuesday evening, Feb.. 18, COLUMN Editor, ,The NEWS: Mi 1 . James F. Vicars, for many years a resident of San Jose, Calif, passed 'away at his home, 1375 Hester street, January 24, after an illness of many months. Retiring and modest in his disposition, Mr. Vicars sought • no publicity, and his name seldom appeared in public print. To those who knew him, ho was a leader in thought. and action. Many worthy local enterprises will have cause to cherish the name of James F. Vicars. The Calvary Methodist church on Naglee street looked upon Mr Vicars, as one of its substntial anc valuablp supporters. The pupils of Hester sch|ool,. for many years competed annually for medals given to the pupil contributing the' best oration op, Peace. Mr. Vicars was born in Russel county, Va., in 1856. His eavly life was spent in-that state as student teacher, and editor. In 1893 he entered the Qherokee strip,. Oklahoma where he farmed and, .raised cattle until 1905 when he .moved .to Pampa Texas. There he acquired extensive farm lands which he operated -until 1921 at wl^ich time he maved to San Jose. The last few years of Mr. Vicars life were marred by illness which confined him to the San Jose hospital in June, 1934. His request to be . taken home ..was granted in December, but he grew worse unti his death last Thursday, January 24 Impressive ceremonies were conducted at the Amos Williams Funeral Home, officiated by Rev. Lloyc Brown, Rev. W. H. Hoyd, and Rev C. B. Sylvester. Interment took place in Oak Hill Memorial Park Surviving Mr. Vicars are his wife Vadnio V.

Now Mateo ftubriz, the quixotic bandit, has fakc-d a challenge by Jack Lascar, In order to ptit Montana afoul the hiw and secure his help in recovering the emerald crown of Ouf tjfidy, Rtolen from the church by the covernor of- Mttteo'a province. Montana decides to answer the challenge, in spite of the insult to Ruth. Chapter Eight. PARTING "I've got the call that ff man has ,o answer, Ruth," Montana said. She only stared at him. Her t Jips were parted a little. She looked older; she seemed to be squinting at a bright, distant light. The 'uture, as like as not. Montana .ried to feel sorry, but couldn't. Richard Lavery did the speaking. He said: "This will be about all, my ad. My g'rl has put up with a good bit. You'll forget about Jack Lascar here and now, or else you'd better forget about Ruth." Montana dismounted. The "wild" nare started to follow him up the steps, but shrank away from these strangers. Her master stood over Ruth. "He's speaking for you. I suppose?" said Montana. But she only kept on staring. One could not say whether there was more pain or fear in her eyes. "It appears that I am speaking for her," said Lavery. "We know what we owe to you, but there's a future as well as a past to think of." "Walt a minute," said Montana. "You can only talk for yourself. Say something, Ruth I" -"I can't," she answered. "If I try to talk—I'll only be weeping." "People cry about things that are gone, f'nished. Am I.finished as far as you're concerned?" She shook her head. "I gave you a promise about the riding of the mare, and then I broke it. Does that make you feel that you can never trust me?" "Do you trust yourself?" she asked. Thils struck him very hard,, apparently. He began to reason on her side: "It's, our wedding day— and I ride off—I'll always be riding off. Is that what you feel?" She was silent. "I know," concluded Montana. "I can see it. What's left in you is mostly fear." "I want to be braver and bigger," said the girl, "but I can't help it. Why are you this way?" "Because the devil got into me between breaths, I suppose," said Montana. "You won't believe how my heart's aching for you now. You seem to me everything that's right and beautiful. If I go away, the best half of the world will be behind me. But I can't stay and be the happy cat by the fire. Ruth, I'm going away ... No matter what happens today, there's no coming back for me." He took her suddenly in his arms. The tears began to run down her face, but she said, very gently: ''I'm not pitying myself. It's for you. I think God pities ypu ( too—and loves you." She lifted her face and he kissed her. Then he turned to- Lavery, and shook hands. : "I was hating you a minute ago—but you're right," he sail. • . , -..-... "There'll be another chance for me to show, you that I'll never forget you, 1 ' said Lavery. "If you'll still listen to me, I'll still beg you—" He checked himself: His unspoken words: filled a beating moment of silence, and then Montana was walking jauntily down the steps and waving his hand. \ "So long, everyone," he called. Afterwards, a*s he sat the saddle, he heard Ruth crying: :"But he'll be killed! Father, he's going to be—" The .sudden beating.of the hoofs of the red mare'drowned out that complaint?. As he-came to the turn of the road, he felt an invisible hand tugging : at his shoulder and therefore he turned into the Saddle and rode out of view with his hat waving over his head. Now he let the red mare race to jet through the pass between the tiills, .pointing towards fpr-pff Bentonville. After that he' felt that he had slipped the hand of the past from his. shoulder. He began to faugh like a child. He had not realized how he had dreaded double harness until he was started on the empty trail again! It was ten-twenty by his watch when he headed into the main street of Bentonville. That was cutting the time a bit short, perhaps, but he did not want to bum up the strength of Sally with too hard a run. For, supposing that he met Lascar and survived the fight with him, he might need all the speed that was in tho mare immediately. < Gun-fights were barred in Ben- lonville. A message had been sent to the sheriff, who was probably running a horse at a dead gallop to get back to the town in time to pre-r vert this duel. And that same sheriff, solemnly, with careful words, hud warned Montana that a single flash of a gun in his hand would be enough to land him in jail. It was curious, In a way, that Jack Lascar should have called for a sli(Qw-down — public show-down. Because there was nothing public about the character or the past of Jack. He loved twilight and twilight ways like a cat. There was some mystery behind this challenge—or was It that the memory of that other defeat, that public shaming, had driven Jack Lascar into a frenzy at last, until death was better than a life In which men smiled behind his back? A freckled-faced boy ran out from a yard and at the side of Montana,: "Are you.gonna do it, Montana?" he shrilled. "Are you gonna kil him? The sheriff'll chase you if you pull a 1 gun in this town! Don't get yourself chased away from us, Montana. Everybody knows you licked Lascar once. Everybody knows you ain't afraid!" . : "Things will be all right, thainks, brothei-," said the Kid. The boy, panting, drew off to the side, shaking his head; and then settled down into a steady dog-trot to get to the appointed place of the meeting. Then Montana saw HI Bailey's blacksmith shop in the distance, thin blue wisps of smoke leaking out through the big, open doors of the place. NO horses were tethered in front of it, waiting their turn to be shod. Instead, the string was hitched on the near side of the place. Well, if bullets were to fly, horseflesh is as penetrable as the bodies of men, but the Kid knew himself and he knew Jack Lascar. There would be no wild shots in this fight! No wonder the rest of the town had seemed deserted. All the life of it was concentrated here. The windows, the doorways, were filled, and people stood at the comers of the houses. A-dull murmur rose ; swelled into a many-throated voice Tho women and children gave the shrill to the sound, The Kl<J looked down and saw that he was -white with dust. He had stuffed the trousers into the tops of his boots and dust was thick in the folds beneath tho knee. Then he saw a slender figure walk slowly out from under an awning and step into the street with feet that lifted high, as though this man did not wish to kick the dust up over the polish of his boots. That was Jack Lascar. His bright Mexican Jacket flashed dazzling in the sun. . "I'll put a red spot on that jacket,' said:Montana softly. He 'dismounted. The mare followed him, .shying a bit from, side to side as she kept seeing fresh crowds of humans on either side of the street. . • Lascar stood" in the exact center of the street, with his hands on his hips. If he had more light on the RQTftMQQR GOATS lii 25th f i ear as Seouting's Chief * 1 ' " S ''.-': Wtoen he opened his desk on the morning of January 2nd, this year, Dr. James E ,West, the Chief Scout Executive iof : the Boy , Scouts pf America, entered upon his twerity- flfth year as administrative head of the organization. .Continuous Identification with one. organization for a quarter of a century and administrative direction of its affairs for a continuous period of that duration is indeed an unusual experience. Yet that has been Dr. James E. West's experience. He opened the new National Office of the organization in a small room in the Fifth Avenue building, 200 Fifth Avenue, on the morning of January 2, 1911. The Boy Scouts of America celebrates its twenty-fifth Anniversary in 1935, beginning on February 8, and culminating in a great National Jamboree of Boy Scouts which will bring 30,000 boys together In a national encampment in Washington, D. C., from August 21 to 30. When Dr. James E. West took over the administration of the Boy Scouts of America, there were only scattered Troops here and there over the United States and relatively few Scouts. Backed by an able and understanding Executive tioard, he has had largely to do with giving leadership to and shaping the policies of the Scout movement over the years. He has seen the movement spring up from its small beginnings until, last year (1934) there were more than 1,323,819 members involved in Hie various activities of the movement during the twelve months. face, he would try his shot for the head. Well, he might try for the head, anyway. The bright buckle of the hat-belt would be a neat target—neat and small. And the rather bad chalices of Jack Lascar would be evened a little. Some one yelled: "Hurry it up. Hurry it up! The sheriff's comln', hell bent!" Then out of the distance Montana could hear the small beating of hoofs. Jack Lascar had turned sld.e-wise. He was not fool enough to offer the full breadth of hlis body to an enemy. He forgot that this turn brought the buckle of the hat-belt into fuller view. They were twenty pa;ces apart. "How does this suit you, Jack!" asked Montana. Lascar's whole body jerked with the violence of his words. He barked his curses like a dog. Any distance suited him. Ten paces would be better. The Kid smiled and walked straight on. (Copyright, 1934, Harper & Brothers) Montana meets an enemy who also is a friend, Monday.
