Many different booths and stunts are planned for entertainment. The public is invited. Many Fans to Follow Team to Hot Springs Many Bobcat • fans plan to accompany the team to Hot Springs Friday night where they meet the Trojans in a conference contest. The Bobcats will be seeking their fourth conference win against two losses while Hot Springs has yet to tnste a conference victory, but hold a coilple of ties. With only five games remaining on the schedule the Hope boys are seine put through rugged workouts by Coaches -Dildy and Tollelt • to avoid a letdown following one of best games of the year last week in downing Camdcn. Victories in the rest of the games would give the Bobcats a pretty fair season as they have dropped only two games so 'far. Thus the mentors are realty working their charges because the time is ideal for a first class upset. Hot Springs svould like nothing move than winning their first- conference victory at Hope's expense. The Trojans are improving fast as evidenf- ed in their tie with North Little Rock last week, a game which saw the Spa boys completely outplay their rivals.

And as in 'the primary voting .his summer it is the county races isolated counties lhat will draw the attention of political observers in the general election. Democratic incumbents in five contested state constilutlonal offices and two U. S. congressional posts are practically conceded victory with Republican or Independent candidates putting up only token resistance. And as little interest has been manifested in three proposed constitutional amendments- and one proposed initiated act, only 'the appeal of war veteran candidates in four district contests and local races 'in some eight or ten counties can pull the vote over the 100,000 mark. The vole in 1942, Ihe lasl off- year election, totaled 98,871. This figure is expected, however, 9,240 to be topped Tuesday due 13 a rec- 12,500 .ord sale of poll tax receipts prior 26,000 to the October 1 st deadline.

Later on he mar ricd. I am still a widow, but my ex - husband insists on calling on me, using every excuse he can muster up to sen mo although he is living with his wife. I want him lo let me alone to live my life, but ho will not do it. When he thinks I am going to have a date ho passes by.my home, and if my date happens lo be there he comes in and abuses him. What can I do about it. EX-WIFE ANSWER: It looks as if you will have to call in the police to protect you from.being annoyed by the unwelcome attentions of your former husband. Apparently he is still in love with you and is jealous of anyone whom you seem to like. It is a common thing for husbands lo have a wandering fool, lo be un- failhful to the wives they really a- dorc. They cannot resist running after every fluttering skirt thai cresses their path, yet at the same time the only woman whom Ihcy. really love arc their wives whom they honor and respect nnd whose heart they break. I would say your husband belongs in this class. O fco uronscl a'-gr'd,G,eslmyie 'Of course," Gayle agreed, smiling at his simplici tya tdn.lsr u ing at his simplicity and trust. "Maybe I could get a job in the same plant, and then everything would be perfect, wouldn't it?" Gayle had meant to be amusing, but before Barney's last gurgle of laughter had died away, she was considering the idea seriously. li had merits, great merits. For mon ths she had taken it for grantee she \yould teach, but she had been loo tired and confused to begin hunting for a position. Now it was loo late; the schools had already opened. And why not a war plant? And why not Bedford Village or some samll place near Ihcrc? She would maintain her residence in Westcheslcr County, in New York State; she would be near Mr. Godfrey when, and if, she needed his assistance and she would be completely out of the orbit of people whom she had associated for the past three years. great trouble getting satisfactory forewomen. You'll have to be trained, of course, but the work's simple You ought to catch on to it easily." To Gayle al limes il seemed un- jclievable that by moving a few miles away from her old home she could leave her old life' completely behind. By driving 10 miles in almost any dircclion she could reach the home of someone she kricw, but she came in contacl with none of those people. They moved on one plane, and now she was moving on another plane fai below. Those planes were parallcs- Ihey touched nowhere. The name Gayle Bartlctt meant nothing lo the pound.

Now that someone else has him I know I love him and that if I made the first move he would come back to me.

There is a better tech- niqu'e than that. Ask him to a party and let him see how pleased you are to sec him again. Hand out a little soft talk, if necessary, but don't put it on paper.

With Barney to guide and advise, she and Mrs. Mays found a satisfactory collage in two days' Ume.

WOLF • JAN SAVITT DEAR VOTER: • '- - : - — Are you interested in schools, and especially your own school? Are you familiar with, and have you given close consideration, to Proposed Initiated-Act. No. 1,. will be voted on Tuesday, November 5th., 1946? /*• '^' - Do you know that if this act passes all schools of 349 and less will automatically be dissolved? ••••"•'•.-. ,« , Do you know that all of these schools will, for a long period of time, be at the mercy of arv appointed -*. board, not one elected by the.people, until the appointed board has time to do its work'?- •--• — Do you know that in matters of annexation, if this bill passes, you are for the first time in the history of this state, denied the right to go to any court on appeal? Why dodge the courts, when have they been unfair to the school people? ,„', ,".«^ Do you think large rural sections, say 300, 325, up to 350, should be torn up — where there has been- a 10 or 12 teacher school for half a century? , Do you think our dirt roods in the rural sections will permit such transportation, or don't you know^ ^ that most of the heavily loaded school buses will spend a large part of their time in some mud hole or*-"" garage. Don't you think beginners, especially very small children, will suffer greatly in weather, such as we have in Arkansas, just to please a political gang, on roads such as we have? They try to confuse you by shedding tears'over the one-room school. We are all against that, but at the same time this thing reaches on up to the 1 0 or 12 room school. We all know they have overstepped. Why undertake to abolish the one-room school, and at the same time include the 10 or 12 room school? They seem to think that the only way to have a good school is to throw all of the pupils together. That is not good business, is economically unsound, and an add«d expense. Besides, in many of our large rural schools, say 300 or more, are some of our most ardent supporters of schools — What would their. community be when this is done, a living graveyard. They already have good schools, but the sponsors say they may not use this authority; well, then, why are you seeking it if you don't intend to use it-' We already have too much centralization, mind you, we have too many one-room schools, but we already have ample laws, to remedy this situation, and it is being, and has already been done in many counties. This act, if passed will automatically put the schools into a political fuss or race, not every two years, but at every annual school election, certainly every section will, of necessity, want and need its man on that five man board, which is going to dictate. This board will automatically be able to control every county ' election. The sponsors of this act say that most lawyers are against this and they arc, for they know that it is seeking to Deprive the people of their legal rights and citizenship. Remember, this act, if passed, gives no additional revenue, and we are all agreed that school teachers ore underpaid, and that 'the schools need more money, even though they have just received $5,000,000.00 more than ever before, still we know that this isn't sufficient, but this amendment would leave most large • rural sections in a state of uncertainty subject at all times to be eliminated or annexed to the other fellow's community, and in Section 3 you will find the very cold-blooded language as follows; the only ' district to be consulted is the one getting or receiving the other fellow's district or school, not the one to be moved at all. Just ask a certain district, "Are you willing to take them", and never say to the district with, say 325 enrolled, "where would you prefer to go?". Read Section 3. If you are interested in the defeat of this proposed Act, get busy at once and help do it, and if you have any suggestions or donations to make they will be gregtly appreciated. ' ,.-,.. .,../.. . If this is Democracy in action, with the right of appeal to all couris denied, then our gang all the way;., down the line didn't know what they were fighting for, even from Valley Forge to Okinawa. • ••• NEVADA COUNTY RURAL SCHOOLS FOR RURAL CHILDREN " Odie DeHan, Treasurer. ..
