Geoibgist Asks for Oil; Gas investigation Little Rock, Ark., Sept. 10 — (UP)— An oil and gas investiga- J tion for eastern and southeastern Arkansas was proposed today by state geologist Harold . Foxhall. In requesting the aid of tha U. S. Geological survey in such an investigation, F.oxhall pointed out 185 wells compete last year, including 44 wildcat. wells of which 11. were drilled in the area he proposed 'io study. He told H. D. Miser .chief of the fuels, division of the U. S. G. S., that "we have no control 'or this area other than a generalized report published in 1935.' Foxhall said that he would enlist the cooperation of major oil companies and independents for detailed well logs, cuttings and cores, and that the project would emphasize oil possibilities for various horizons. The state geologist said that his proposal had been well received by the federal body, and that such survey may be arranged. o- Lynx and marten pelts have value of $60 each to trappers. 1938 Packard Sedan Chevrolet Club Coupe $ 800.00 1,300.00 750.00 j 941 |936 Ford Station Wagon \ R.C.A, Radio, 3-Band, 1 l-Tube 7 | Phonograph Connection 120,00 t, 1 Portable Liquor Cabinet, Walnut Finish (Complete) 40,00 1 Remote Control Record Player 45.00 Contact can be made at FRED'S AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE Division Street Phone 933 ncans inConference of Little-Rock Little Rock; Sept. 10 — (IP)— Aransas Republicans convened here oday apparently hopeful of gain- ng additional power through re- ision of election laws. The state's minority party were o consider an active campaign. :.'p£ a revised, three-member sta?" elec- Son board with one • Republican having a vote. Party campaign plans were out ined in the convention keynote ad dress by Osro Cobb of. Pine Bluff and: Little ROCK, Arkansas Re publican leader for many years fie. also proposed: Passage of a law.to provide :"or naming of presidential -?!sctors on a.percentage basis, providing a representative of the minority party at each voting .precinct and xhe naming of a. southerner as vice- presidential candidate on the 1948 ticket. The convention was expected to name a gubernatirial candidate and two or more congressional candidates. Judge. Will. T. Mills, Marshall, appeared likdly to NT the party's candidate for governor. Congressional nominees were xo be selected for at least the- third and ,'ifth districts. The platform on revised election laws, as proposed by Cobb, would eliminate the present state election board made up of Arkansas' top.five constitutional officers and substitute a board consisting of one Democrat; one Republican and a third person chosen by the governor. Of his proposal to name presidential electors on a "percentage basis," Cobb said: "nothing could stimulate more interest in our elections. It would get out the vote and everyone would appreciate that his vote was counted. 1 His proposal was that if 200,000 Arkansas- Democrats voted, in comparison with 100,000 Rep,ubli- cans, six presidential electors would go to the Democratic party and the other three to the minority party. "It would prevent any presiden tial candidate from taking us for granted." Lack of Republican representa tion at voting nrecincts was termed by Cobb as "utterly inexcusable." "In a democracy we know that the minority is entitled to such representation and entitled to have its votes honestly counted as cast. We as a minority and the fair state of Arkansas can no longer tolerate the evil and destructive conseque nces of this risk injustice."

The day began quietly enough. Cousin Ellen hrid decided at last to put away Mrs/'Filzgcvtild'S clothes, a thing she, bnd-not had Ihe heart to do; before,and I-'was helping her.

'I just got it, Cecelia. Do you like it?' she said. 'It has a little train, isn't it regal?' She walked across the floor to show me the little train sweeping behind her, giv ing it a gay littie kick, as she turned. She said softly, 'Do you think they'll like it, Cecelia?' And 1 told her I was sure they would. I think it was while we were discussing the dress that Cousin Ellen called from Upstairs, 'Cecelia, do you bring me the little key you'll find hanging inside the cupboard door. It'll be the one with the blue lag that says 'black leather trunk.' ' And Beatrice said, 'I'll lake it up to her, Cecelia. You stay here and watch your biscuils, I'm too fond of them to let you burn them.' \Vc were both laughing as she trailed the rose-colored train up the back stairs. I was pulling a blueberry pic on Colin, swept held word, the window sill to cool, when t. saw them, Miss Charlotte and Colin, coming slowly up from the river together. There was something in the way they walked, the way they looked at each other, the way they did not seem lo know where they were going, that made me unable to look away, as they pass; cd close by the window where 1' stood. And I remembered, then, how Beatrice Harrington, her sweet face alight with eagerness, had said softly, 'Do you think they'll like 11, Cecelia?' Only, of course, what she had meant was, 'Do you think he'll like it? Do you think Colin Fitzgerald will like it?' And without quite realizing why I did it, I hurried to the front hall to tell Colin and Charlotte that Bcaricc had come. But I didn't lell them. For, when I opened the door, they were standing there close together, look- ling into each other's eyes. And just then, as I hesitated, with a sound like a groan, Charlollc into his arms and her close. And without a Charlotte lifted her face ,and they kissed, oblivious of everything around them. And at that moment, I.looked up as she was about to descend, she and saw Beatrice come hurrying to the top of the stairs. And just saw them there, Colin and Char- lolc in each other's arms. She tried to take a step back- Wards, tripped on the train of the rose-colored gown and plunged headlong down the stairs. It was Mark who picked her up, rushing from his study before, any of the rest of us-, could move. And even I realized instantly that she was dead. And somehow in Ihosc first horrible moments, while Mark shouted at Colin to call the doctor,while Ellen clutched the railing at the. top of the sairs and screamed, while I sruggled to . keep from fainting, I was aware that .Charlotte Brent had not moved '> nor spoken. Then suddenly I heard her laugh, that shrill, peculiar laugh of hers, over and over. .

A —It's always train time at a railroad crossing. Look both ways. 5 — If you swim—don't go in alone or when overheated. 6—Don't overload a boat. Keep the weight evenly distributed. Never stand up or change seats while out on the water. Never rock the boat. • 7—Don't use fireworks. 8—As you drive along the highway, you'll find many signs saying: "Slow—Curve!"—"Speed Limit"—etc. These signs were put there for your protection.

Pence The Peace Home Demonstration Club met September 3rd with Mrs. Herman Hurd, with eight members present. The meeting was called to order by the president. The song of the month "Coming Through the Rye" was sung. The roll call was answered by telling what we had done to improve storage of foods. Reports from loaders showed there had been 18 dresses one skirt, 6 pairs of pants, 3 slips, 2 blouses and one coat made, two .dresses m;<dc over, buttonholes worked in one dress, two new dishes were made, 327 quarts canned, lettuce, radishes, potatoes, peas, onions and turnips had been planted. For recreation, two games were played one hunting a needle in a hay stuck. Mrs. Lois Hampton won Ihe prize (an apron) for tind- ing the needle. Another was writing the names of the books in the New Testament. Mrs. Lois Hampton also won the prize (some homemade bias tape) for writing the most names. Plans were made for the cemetery working at Bright Slar Sept. 18. Miss Wcstbrook gave a demonstration on rcfixing floors using hot boiled linseed oil. The mcclinji adjourned to meet with Mrs. Lois Hampton October 1. Demonstration will be milking a magazine rack.

Do try It. proof of domestic misery do;es not take inlo account the vast mimbcv of marriages that arc nothing but a long dawn-out martyrdom of men and women who have the strength and the courage to endure a lifetime of loneliness and frus- tation to give their children a stable home. And in all the heartbreak with which poor, blundering humanity pays for its mistakes and women who are bound together in a marriage in which love is dead and they are doomed to drag about with them its festering corpse. The folly and the tragedy of too youthfull marriages was never so vividly illustrated as it is now when the divorce courts arc swamped under the pctilions of youngsters to be freed from the vows they so blithely took to love arid cherish each- other until death should'them part; when the scandal mongers ars 'rolling on their tongues the tales of boy : and girl husbands and wives who have been unfaithful lo each other, and when there never were so:many broken bombs as there are now, nor so itiany girls, who arc children themselves, going back to Mother with babies whom they have no way of 'supporting.' Risky Gamble These teen-agers whose marri ages have gone on the rocks so soon arc not to blame. It is Nature that brings about the catastrophe by letting them grow up and ma- lure, and then they find out that the boys and girls Ihcy thought they could not live without they can no live with, and that there is somebody else who is their hearts' desire. ». A marriage license only gives a hobbledehoy boy and a bobby-sock girl a legal right, lo dice with Fale. It furnishes no guarantee that they will win oul. It works no miracle. It doesn't put an old head on young shoulders. It doesn't make two kids, who are at the playtime of life, ready to settle down and spend their evenings sitting by the fire. Nor docs it automatically make a boy, who has no trade 01 profession, ablc« lo support a fam- (ly. Their feet still ache to dance. They want to have good times. They want to run with the crowd. They want good clothes and cars. They don't want lo be tied down by babies and lo have to go shabby and be harassed by billcollec- tors. They have taken upon their shoulders a load they are not strong enough to bear and thai crushes all of the joy of youth out of them. Under heaven there is no more piteous sight than a teen-age wife and mother wrestling incom potently with pols and pans and a shoesing income and a sickly,crying baby, unless il is a boy hus band driven to desperation by the lack of money and the knowledge that when he married too early he shut the door of opportunity iii his face. Of course, there is an occasional childmarriagc that docs turn out happily, but it happens so rarely that it is not a safe be. Only adults who have the price, who know Ihe rules, who have learned to give and take, who can win, or lose, and take il, arc fitted to sit in at that game. It is no sport for tccn-agcrs to engage in. : SECOND BEST Everett, Wash., Sept. 9 — I/Pi -Willis W.
