I- OtJR THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, PampS, T6ktt MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 8, 1936 REVIVAL OPENS WITH LECTURE TO AN OVERFLOW AUDIENCE IKS DF HIP TRIP TO STATE SONGFEST WILL BE MADE BY 50 Pupils Will Receive Passes to Dallas Centennial DAILY SERMONS WILL BE DELIVERED BY TENNESSEAN The largest crowd ever to assemble at Francis Avenue Church of Christ overflowed the auditorium last evening to hear Dr. V. B. Hardeman of Henderson, Tenn., give an Interesting lecture on The Holy Land. Dr. Hardeman, president of Freed-Hardeman college, yesterday morning preached the first sermon of a revival that will continue two weeks at the church, with services at 10 a. m. and 8:15 p. m. dally. His lecture last evening attracted many visitors, Including some from 16 different towns of the Panhandle and Oklahoma. Churches- of Christ at Panhandle and White Deer dismissed evening services and many members came here. The speaker held the interest of his audience for more than an hour, which he explained was twice the length of his usual sermon, as he told of his trip to Palestine. He traveled by motor- over a splendid system of highways, he said, but in the cities he mounted a donkey for a closer view of the narrow streets. Contrast In these two . types of travel exemplified the modern Holy Land to Dr. Hardeman. He found primitive agricultural methods and living conditions, but regretted that many spots sacred to Christians have been covered with modern buildings and made commercial show places so that the pilgrim must use his imagination to see them as they were in Biblical days. In a . brief geographical description of the country, he said that It Is In the same latitude and has about the same climate as south Texas, but the rainfall all comes in the winter, and vegetation is generally sparse because of the dry summers. The rural sections, with their vineyards and herds of sheep, appear true to tradition, he found, as do many of the cities, with their narrow streets, lazy merchants, and. low stone buildings. He added th&t he saw only one wooden house in the entire community — an American mail-order house in Joppa. He spoke of the principal cities: Tyre and §idon on .the coast; Heoron, oldest city in Palestine, where are tombs of Old Testament patriarchs; Bethlehem, set in a fertile section and boasting a magnificent temple at the spot where tradition says Christ was born; Nazareth, where the carpenter shop and home of Mary and Joseph are pointed out; and Jerusalem, walled city built on four hills on a site, chosen for its military advantage, inhabited by Christians, Jews, and Mohammedans and holding ancient traditions for each sect. Dr. Hardeman will speak twice dally during the revival period. E. C. . McKenzie, minister of the church, invites the public to hear him. All services yesterday were well attended. Bible school had 188 present. • PIE SUPPER SCHEDULED Postponed two weeks ago because of rains, an outdoor pie supper following night softball games is announced again for Wednesday evening on the Skelly Oilers diamond' in Schafer camp.

By MAR6ARET BELL HOUSTON Chapter 27 ® CIGARET SMOKE "How is Rupert?" Hope asked. "Rupert was better this morning," Dirk answered. "Doesn't Sanford keep you advised? I asked him to." "Yes, he telephoned. But then .'.', "Her voice was lower than usual, as if she- feared disUu-bing some one. It was .sheer weakness, no doubt. "I understand," Dirk said. "You feel I've just come from him. He's going to pull through. He's got every chance. Please sit down, Hope. I'll only stay a minute." After a moment she moved with a twinkle of beaded, padded slippers, and sank in the big chair. She did not look at him now, but sat clutching the shawl, staring before her, her face pale in the dusk. Dirk sat down, too, permitting his anxiety to creep into his voice. "Martin tells me you had something of a scare the other night." "Yes," she said, still In the lowered, rather husky voice, as if she were afraid of disturbing some one. Suddenly Dirk was aware of an odor in the room, the faint, not altogether stale, odor of cigarets. He thought of Timothy who held that ghosts have their. "scent." He thought of Nora who had said that Mrs. Joris did not smoke. Nora, he recalled, did not look after Mrs. Jaris' room these days. That nervous people sometimes took up smoking, Dirk was aware. He said: "I understand that Martin himself was worse than the burglar, or whatever it was. "Mary," she answered, "says that it was a ghost." "Yes, I know. I didn't know whether you'd heard of the tower- ghost or not. . . Whatever it was, Hope, I want you to move your room." "But I like this room." "Even though it's haunted?" Dirk smiled as he said the word, but he was serious enough in wanting her out of here, in wanting to examine this-room as he had never examined it. The smell of cigarets disturbed him, even, though, to his mind, Hope 'might have good reason to take up smoking. She answered now in the low voice.: "I don't think the room's haunted." "And you're not afraid?" he asked. After the barest possible moment her face turned to him. He thought he could have seen her face, star- white with the tragic eyes, even in the dark. "No',, she said, "I am not afraid." Defiance, faint but unmistakable, was in her voice. Dirk. spoke impulsively. ... <"I know you're afraid, Hope. Let me help you." She looked .at him. I'm afraid?" "You think "I'm sure of it. Won't you trust me?" "But why should you think I'm afraid?" "What else? Why else should you have the revolver?" Her eyes lit darkly. "I knew it was you. Where Is it.?" "The revolver?" he said. "I knew nothing about it. . . nothing about your having it. till Nora told me. She found it in the safe." "Nora. . . In the safe." She repealed the words automatically, as if they had stunned her. Then suddenly: "Nora opened a safe!" she said. "She took what was not hers. It's common thievery." So that was her opinion of the transaction. And she had assumed that the thief was he. "Nora, didn't know that the revolver belonged to you," he explained. "She dusts in the safe occasionally. When she found a gun in it she took it out for fear you might run across it, and hurt yourself. Was it loaedd?" She said that it was. She had risen now, and was moving about the room, quietly at first, then •blindly, distractedly, like a moth. The painted shawl had fallen on the floor, and Dirk picked it up. Dirk lit the lamp, and she whirled about, facing him, paler than ever in the light. "Aren't you going to tell me where it is?" "Rupert has it," he answered quietly. "Nora took it in to Rupert." him You mean Rupert has it with at camp?" "I don't know yet. It hasn't been found in his room. I've ordered Nova to make a thorough search. I have my own reasons for hoping he didn't see fit to go off with such a thing. You don't hunt grouse with revolvers." She had paused, and after a moment: "I know," she said, speaking as quietly as he. "It may be. . .he didn't take it," as if to reassure them both. "It may be he merely . . . didn't want me to have it. If Nora finds it. . . " "If Nora finds it," Dirk finished as she paused, "you shall have it back. Or I'll get you another. If you are afraid, and won't leave the room. . . " "I'm not afraid," she broke in firmly. "The gun is not new." • "Well, at any rate, you won't leave the room." "I see no need to." "All right, Hope. But admit you are nervous, and not very well." He had approached her on his way to the door, was holding out CALENDAR TUESDAY. Mrs. H. T. Hampton will entertain Tuesday Afternoon bridge club.

But do say you aren't well, and his hand as if in good-by. Shi seemed not to see the gesture, bu he continued to stand there, am presently she laid her hand in his. 'And cold," he added. "You hand is like ice." "I know," she admitted, can't get used to your winter." "I'll tell Bernard to send more heat," he said. She had felt about her should ers for the little shawl. It was sti: in Dirk's hand, and he laid 1 around her. She was close to hin now. Her tumbled hair brushei his face. "Hope, dear! . . . Hope, pleas He felt her stiffen beneath th shawl, beneath his hands. Sh withdrew, moving slowly now standing beside the chair, facin him, waiting for him to go. It was no use. She wouldn confide in him, wouldn't adml even that there was anything t confide. She had no faith in him had even thought him capabl of stealing her revolver. And h had estranged himself still furthe by accusing her of fear. "After all," he said, "it takes a pretty brave girl to own a forty- five gun. I take back what I said • - - • I I don't want you to have any more shocks, Martin or otherwise. If you do hear anything:, I hope you'll call me." The little smile he had seen that first night touched the corners of her mouth. "I suppose," she said, "that you are a tower of bravery, yourself.' 1 "Well, at any rate" he answered, "I could fight anything you were mad at." "So can I," she said. "Then the two of us could lay anything. I want you to call me, and if you don't get better right away, I want you to see a doctor. Promise?" She nodded, faintly smiling, standing in the aura of the lamp. In the hall Dirk met Mary approaching with a tray. Earlier in the evening he had wondered about Mary, about the freedom of her access to Hope's room when the other servants were excluded. He had dismissed the question with its aroma of distrust. Mary had from the start appropriated Hope with a respectfully maternal hand. She was slightly deaf, and very near-sighted and completely lacking of suspicion. Always she had evinced a disconcerting gift for accepting any account as true. Dirk remembered how she had said to him that first Sunday morning, the morning that Hope had disappeared, and he had ridden out to find her: "Mrs. Joris has been to church, sir." He had doubted this with a vague and unhappy doubt, but Mary had' believe.d it. This quality in Mary—a credulity that no. doubt had its root in loyalty—Hope had no doubt divined.

General Strike In France Called PARIS, June 8 f/P)—Coal miners in northern France numbering 150,000 called a general strike today a few hours after 1,000,000 other workers had won a complete victory in the "folded arms" refusal to work. Workers in Paris building trade? also began a walkout to enforce the five point agreement which ended the 14-day strike after Premier Leon Blum's "new deal" government interceded for organized labor. . The coal miners, who declared they had rather "strike and starve than work and starve," occupied pits and offices in the northern fields. In some places mining officials were 1 held prisoners in their buildings but leaders of the mining union quickly ordered their release. Th'e government's declaration against devaluation brought new strength to the franc at the opening of the market. *&. TERRELL NAMED WASHINGTON, June 8 (#>—C. V.
