JNDAY MORNING, JUNE 7, 1936. THE PAMPA TDAilY NEWS, fampa, Texas BEST OF ILL SEi IT FtTE STOCK AND HANDS ARE 'TOPS' IN RODEO WORLD The rodeo presented by the Panhandle Centennial committee will be ( remembered. NO expense was spared In giving visitors the best and although money was lost on the undertaking, the committee of H. Otto Studer, Lon L. Blanscet, Aubra' Bowers, Carlton Nance M A. Graham and O. K. Gaylor, feels they presented one of the best exhibitions ever staged in the southwest. More than 100 "top" hands battled some of the best rodeo stock money could secure. The horses and bucking steers were rough. The Calves were fleet and tricky. Many of the best hands bit the dust during the three days of entertainment. Special entertainment was provided by high class artists. Several of them have been featured at the Cheyenne Roundup, Madison Square Garden, Calgary Stampede, .Fort Worth Fat Stock Show and other major attractions. •• The one and only Jimmle Nesblt, and his mule, Will Rogers, clowned the show. Mrs. Nesbltt gave a marvelous exhibition of trick riding. Miss Opal Wood of Ringwood, Okla., was a trick rider and roper de luxe. The famous Ramsey family, three sisters and two brothers all under 21 years of age, entertained with trick riding and roping. Bill Van Vactor of Carter, Okln., was the big money winner 'Of the rodeo, receiving a check for $180. Vic Swartz of Bynrs was second with $160 and Sltitz Jacobs of Merrlman, Wyo., placed third with a purse of $125. Friday, closing day, was more spectacular than the previous two performances. The stock was meaner, six entrants failing to ride the 10 seconds in the bronc riding contest. Bull'dogging was even tougher than before. The calf ropers had it somewhat easier. The fame of the stock being used in the attraction spread after the first performance and yesterday five different cities were trying to secure the animals for rodeos in their towns.

But now, if he moved carefully, might he not surprise her trust, her confidences? He went downstairs, and knocked on Hope's door. The door opened almost at once, as if she were expecting some one . . . Mary, probably, who Nora said, was the only one she would see. Having opened the door, she stood without moving, looking at nlm. She was fully dressed, or was it Indeed a sort of negligee she wore? A pale yellow dress, girdled just below her breast, and trimmed about the throat with white fur. Her hair was rumpled, a tumble of dark curls, and she hugged a little shawl of painted silk about her as if she were cold. Even in the dusk, Dirk should observe the change In her, the pallor of her face, the almost tragic shadows beneath her eyes. "May 1 come in, Hope?" She drew back, admitting him. When he had entered, however, she did not sit down, but stood beside the bed, her hand resting on the great carved post that somehow looked like a totenl pole beside her, so immense and ancient It was. Every doubt, every torturing suspicion, melted at sight of her, flowed from his mind as if It had never been. He knew only that she was ill, that seeming only to touch the bed beside her, she really braced herself against it, otherwise she could not have stood. Dirk smells ciffarcts, tomorrow, in Hope's room. Suit To Be Made For Edward VIII Of Texas Wool @ i/psu tt/eciin ^^ ^^ f n k. A n >t A n r> <r n n • m* CO, BY MAR6ARET BELL HOUITON Chapter 26 ABOUT GHOSTS "Was there anything else in the safe?" Dirk asked. "There was not, sir. Kxceptin' a bit of dust." "When was this, Nora?" "Two days. . . Three days, sir, before Mister Rupert went to camp." "Did he say anything when you handed it to him?" "Well, sir, he laughed and said, 'That's Texas for you.' 'Texas, sir?' I said, for I couldn't remember any one named Texas sleepin' in that room, and no one at all has slept in it since your uncle, Mr. Ryker Joris, stayed with us whilst your father was ill. When I said, 'Texas, sir?' he said, 'Mrs. Joris is from Texas. . She's not afraid of anything, not even a forty-five gun.' "Was that all he said?" Dirk asked. "No, sir. He told me, 'I'll bet she strikes a match with a bullet and puts it out again with a second shot.' He did indade, sir, and laughed hearty at my sick looks. . I remember though that Mrs. Joris does not smoke. She does not use matches at all, thank the saints." Obviously Rupert had received the weapon in a spirit of hilarity. "Did you mention the gun to Mrs. Joris?" Dirk asked. "That I did not. I left Mister Rupert to do what he pleased about it, and I'm thinkin' he gave it back to her, though it was not in the wall-safe next day, nor the day before she came home." "You think it was a ghost, Nora?" "What ilse, sir? There is a ghost in Lowrie. I have me-self heard it, thought not for a long time." "In the tower-room?" "Near-by, at any rate, sir. I heard it plain from the hall, a sound like some one laughin', laughin' high like a banshee. Your grandfather had the tower-room thin. He did not hear the sound, I remimber. That was long ago." "No one heard it but you?" "Not that night, sir. But others have heard the tower ghost. Timothy has seen it." She paused in some confusion. Apparently she had not meant to bring Timothy into the discussion. "Timothy has seen it," Dirk repeated. "When?" "Just whin, I could not tell ye. But it was years ago. He does not spake of it, sir. Mary told me." "All right, Nora. That will do." Nora's hand moved to the doorknob. "Mary said to ask ye, sir, if you would be havin' dinner at home." "In an hour," said Dirk. When Nora had gone he rang for Timothy. Their shadowy world revolving so near, had suddenly become real to him. A ghost. It seemed a proper denizen of that world. Timothy came, a bit disturbed. He had no doubt met Nora on the stair. No sir, he said, he never spoke of the incident, and he had advised Martin to be reticent regarding the sounds he had heard. People were too ready to misunderstand. A napkin was still in Timothy's hand, for he had responded hurriedly to Dirk's bell. In the. dusk of the room he wadded the bit of cloth nervously, his pale old eyes meeting Dirk's, his words falling reluctantly. "Your grandfather, sir. You know I was very fond of your grandfather. It was he who -brought me over from my home in Glamorgan- shire." "I know. And you were young, too." '•Right sir. This did not happen at that time. This did not happen till after your grandfather died. You were a child at the time, sir. . . . not much more than a baby. "It was a summer's night, and very still, when there came a sound. . . along about twelve o'clock. . . like your grandfather's bell. . . directly over my bed, sir. "It had not waked Mary, so I must have dreamed it.' But I got into my clothes and went down the stair, and opened his door. He was not there. But, standing in the room, was a figure, a lady, sir, all in white." "Any one you knew?" asked Dirk. Timothy looked at him. "It was a ghost, sir." Dirk felt rebuked, and properly. ' * . "I know," he said. "But did you recognize. . . "I thought afterwards of your grandmother, sir, but it was not like nor. The room was dim, merely the night lamp. I saw only that she was slender, and beautiful in a shadowy sort of way, and all in white, with something white and misty around her hair." "Did she speak?" Dirk ased. "She did not, sir. She merely looked at me, and I at her. Then instantly I begged pardon, and closed the door. In the hall it occurred to me that she might have wished to give an order since she had run the bell. I turned back, and knocked, and opened the door again. But she was no longer there." "Did you look?" "I did, indeed, sir. Your grandfather returned home as I entered the room and he helped me search." "He was as mystified as you?" "Naturally, sir. The figure had been there, and now it was gone." "He believed you, of course,'" said Dirk. "I am not so certain," replied Timothy. "I suppose he laughed," Dirk suggested. "He was rather bluff, I remember." "Well, yes, he laughed. . . when I spoke of the scent." "The scent?" "There was a sort of perfume, sir. . . the faintest possible. . . when the figure was In the room. Embarrassed though I was, I could not but notice it. Even after the figure had disappeared the fragrance seemed to linger. I spoke of it, and that was when he laughed, and opened a window." Dirk thought of Hope commanding Martin to search the room. Could there be some other pocket in that wall, some larger panel behind which a human being might secrete himself? "And you never saw the ghost again?" Dirk asked. "No, sir. So far as I am aware, she has never reappeared. But Martin's account of the voice, and no tracks about the house. . . " "It sounds like the same thing," agreed Dirk. However, the voice that Martin had heard was that of a man. Obviously, Martin had not mentioned this fact to the servants, and the sex of the tower-ghost was not a point of discussion below stairs. Alone, Dirk stood thinking of the revolver. Why did she possess it, why did she want it, if she was not afraid? It was a recent acquisition, that he knew for he had looked into the safe one night himself. Surely she would not have felt the need of such a weapon if she had been in league with the sounds Martin had heard. If she would only confide in him! She had veiled herself studiously since she had caught him watching her in the mirror that night. Perhaps she had never real- LUBBOCK. June 6.—Gov. Jame: V. Allred has pledged his support to a plan originated here by Morris Burchfield, Texas Technological college textile engineer, whereby Kin; Edward VIIT will receive a suit whose material was woven at Tech from wool produced on the college farm. In a letter to Burchfield recently, Gov. Allred announced his intention of sending a Texas Rangei commission to the King, accompanied by a request that the suit be accepted. Burchfield nopcs to present the gift in person when he and two Tech students land in Europe on a White Star liner, by which all three will be employed this summer. Gov Allred has said he plans to commission them "Texas' Tech Rangers' and give them a letter introduction to the king. They will take with them when they sail in July a pair of boots and a 10-gallon hat as gifts of the Texas Centennial central exposition. President Bradford Knapp of Texas Tech is negotiating with Robert W. Btngham, United States ambassador to Great Britain, to make official arrangements for the presentation ol the suit. It will be tailored by a clothing company in New York City, whose London representatives are xclusive tailors to the king. .*» Nazi Calls Part-Jews 'Unfit' PRENZLAU, Germany (/P)—Nazis having calculated there are 42,000 "mixed" marriages in Germany, that is. weddings between Aryans and non-Aryans, Mayor Fahrenhorst of this town said: "This means that we have some 80,000 children who are not fit to aid in the re- bit th of the nation."
