And he hadn't been easy to catch, a fact that Leona considered strange be- j cause she'd always been able to get what she wanted. Her father's millions made it easy. Paul himself didn't object to being caught. The opposition had come from Leona's father and other relatives. Especially Aunt Maggie. They'd examined Paul so 'clofoly that even Leona had to keep reminding herself that she believed in Paul. Leona had felt guilty about these early doubts. She knew that Aunt Maggie and the others meant well and to a certain extent they had been right in making a close examination of Paul. A girl in Leona's position, svho would inherit millions should make certain that the man she married wasn't just after money. Aunt Maggie had hired a private detective to find out exactly nothing against Paul. He must have been, aware of Aunt Maggie's investigations, but he gave no sign. And he had passed with reasonably high marks. Paul wasn't wealthy, but he had ability. True, he'd never held onto any job very long but this was due to the fact that he had more ability than the jobs required. The jobs were beneath Paul, hence he became bored and Bond issue Is Continued frotn Page One interest rale if. more than four per cent I will resign and go back home lo Hurilsvillo.

But Dr. McDonald said the bond proposal was a sellout to the Oaklawn Jockey Chib." ft pledges 12 extra days of racing revenues to pay off the bonds. "If you think politics has a strangle hold on Arkansas and her people now," the minister said, "just wait till you see what it will be like if the bonds are voted." Faubus said funds from the race track go into the genera! revenue fund except for the added 12 days. He added that public school funds come out of the general revenue fund. The governor said his opponents have "attempted to create a booger man to frighten the public with things which do not exist— trying to insinuate corruption and JFK Decides to Give His Back a Rest WASHINGTON (API—President j Kennedy today decided not to attend a women's press dinner tonight to avoid any additional strain in his ailing hack. The White House, announcing the change in plans, reported Kennedy continues to improve, however. The chief executive, still using his crutches, walked with greater apparent ease than newsmen had observed in a week when he got out of his helicopter on returning rom Middlehurg, Va., to the Legal Notice No. 8417 In the Chancery Court of Hempstead County, Ark. GARRETT WILLIS .... Plaintiff vs. ALBERTA JETER .'.. Defendant WARNING ORDER The defendant, ALBERTA JETER, is warned to appear in this court within thirty days and answer the complaint of the Plaintiff, Garrett Willis. Witness my hand and the seal of said court this 24th day of May 1961. Jamie Russell, Clerk By Katherine B. Lautherbach, D. C. : (SEAL) May 25, June 1, 8,15,1961 would go after something better. Ambition is no crime. Now Leona's father would see to ft that Paul had something suitable to work at. Paul was eageV and ambitious and he'd be worth every cent her father paid him. Paul finally-won over Aunt Maggie, Leona's father and all the other relatives. "He has a way about him," said the old man. "I'll make a good salesman out of him." "I suppose if you're bound to marry him, we can't stop you," said Aunt Maggie. "But remember, you have a great deal of money and you'd belter be sure this man wants you, not what you have or will get." "Tosh. Aunt Maggie," said Leona. . "But I'm like your father. He is a nice young man—to all appearances." From Aunt Maggie, that was an accolade. Now Leona and Paul were alone together in the bridal suite, looking out over the sen. Paul stood there handsome, calm and unruffled. Not in the least nervous, as Leona was. Paul never wore his emotions on his coatsleeve. As Leona smiled, he smiled back, a friendly smile, but somewhat restrained. But it was quite in keeping with Paul's cool, reserved personality. "We're alone, Paul," she whispered. Paul clasped her to him. He kissed her tenderly. Leona would have preferred a little less tenderness and a little more warmth, but Paul would grow into that sort of thing. He couldn't cast aside his polished restraint like a cape. Paul would never act like a savage cave man. "Isn't it wonderful" Leona said. "We're married at last. We belong to each other. We'll be together forever." She felt one of his arms untwine and she looked up as he lifted his hand. What she saw froze the smile on her lips. Leona pulled back, breaking loose from lu's one- armed embrace. Paul was yawning.

Faubus attacked state Sen, Roy Milum's proposed pay-as-you-go construction plan as "rather fool- -sh and wholly inadequate," He said under such a plan the current surplus of $10 million would not meet the needs of the State Hospital and several agencies would be left out. He charged opponents with exaggerating the amount of the surplus fund. He said there is a $14.5 million surplus, but $4.5 million 3elongs to various agencies and :annot be used. Faubus said "the same old irowd" was opposing the bond plan "Becuasc it was proposed by me. At West Memphis, Dr. Mull ins smphasizcd that the bond program was "Not the governor's program. "We (the college president's) devised it and the governor support id it," Mullins said. lie said the election will hold the key to whether or not the University of Arkansas will be a first rate land grant institution." "The response we give to this program at the polls next week," Mullins added, "will determine in no small manner the shape of 'uture development in Arkansas." While the speech making was going on, the board of directors of !he Yell County Farm Bureau met in Ola and voted unanimously for a resolution opposing the bonds. "The opinions expressed by the state president of the Farm Bur eau do not coincide with those of the Yell County board," the resolution said. Faubus denied any secret deal for the sale of the bonds and for a fiscal agent's fee. He said it was not true that a "superboard" would be created to spend the money and that he would control Rozzell charged that "The only reason for extending the bond program over a four period r; is to provide" machinery for political manipulations." Shepherd issued a statement after Faubus' speech criticizing Faubus for not explaining his "callous neglect of the suffering sick folk in the State Hospital, whose more serious dangers and deficiencies could and should be corrected with the abundant surplus in the state treasury." "The big bond deal," Shepherd said, "is now definitely one of politicians against the people." White House this morning.
