fog« Four HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, January 14, Don Juan, Pretender to Spanish Crown, Reported Negotiating for Return By DeWITT MacKENZIE . AP World Traveler -Madrid, Jan. 14—There's a sense of keen public expectancy here in "the Spanish capital in connection With reports that Dan Juan, pretender to the Spanish crown, is negotiating for a return to the throne of his fathers. These reports were given a sharp filltip yesterday when Foreign Minister. Alberto Martin Artajo, in a conference with the foreign press, " confirmed that Don Juan and his Wife would journey from Switzerland to Portugal to visit her aged parents. The latter live in Seville. 'but are going to Portugal for the meeting. The toreign minister didn't suggest there was any political significance in this matter. So far as his 'announcement was concerned it was just a family affair. It was natural, however, that such a visit by ;Don Juan should be coupled in the •public mind with restoration of the monarchy — which doesn't sound like such a bad guess at that. Anyway, that's the highly inler- esting situation your correspondent and his staff help meet have encountered on dropjjins out of a win\try sky into the sunshine of Madrid ,"after a flight over Pyrenees from Paris. the lofty Hope Star Star of Hope 1S99; Pr««» 1*27, Consolidated January 18, 1*29 CLASSIFIED Ads Must Be In Office Day Before Publication • All Want Ada Cash In Advance • Not Taken Over the Phone Ont tint . . . 2c wofd. minimum 30e Six times . . . 5c word, minimum 7Se Thrt* tlmti . .

However, the highly developed grapevine telegraph got into action, with the result that the information was being widely discussed in a very short time. Well, now, is Don Juan's visit to .Portugal purely private or does it in fact relate to his avowed desire of assuming the Spanish crown? I think it's a fair bet the monarchy is involved. As a matter of fact. Foreign Minister Martin Artajo is said in well informed quarters to have been negotiating between Don Juan and Generalissimo Franco. In any .event, the signs are that we won't have to wait over long for the denouncement of this situation which means so much not only to Spain but to the world at large. Dr.Conti,Nazi 'Mad Doctor 7 Took Own Life By DANIEL DeLUCE Nuernberg, Jan. 14 — (#>)— Dr. Leonardo Conti, Hitler's "mad doctor" whose suicide three months ago in the Nuernberg palace of Justice Jail was kept secret by U. S. Army authorities, wrote a farewell note to his family that he was taking his life because he had lied under American interrogation. The hysterical suicide message, scrawled by the Nazi health leader who decreed the killing of hundreds of thousands- of persons in his lust for "race purity," apparently was never delivered. His suicide was disclosed yesterday. o There ,are approximately 250 commercial airports in the United States. There are about 35,000 miles of federal airways in the United States.

H—When Henry Morgenthnu said he acted "perfectly openly" in guard plane for using trips a coast between Washington and his home in Duchess county, near the Roosevelt estate, during the war, he told the truth, technically But the public was not told about his until the other day and Henry certainly would not contend that this news was ever announced to the press at any time Moreover, during the shooting war we were forbidden to reveal the movements of service planes and so, although Henry did nothing to conceal information which he surely knows would have been angrily received by the people, the censorship did it for him Nor do I believe that Mr Mor- geiilhau was straightforward in his version of the rest of the story He says he really doesn't know how many such trips he made in his two planes and when I asked him whether fifty would be a good estimate or twenty he couldn't say I don't believe Henry's examiners and reviewers in the income tax department would have given a man credit for sincerity if he had similarly answered a comparable question The way I heard it is that Henry first had a Lockheed Twelve and, whereas he says "they" got him another, which was Lockheed THE OLD PINSON PLACE, 10 miles out on Hope-Columbus highway.

Under an agreement such a: thai, Uic Uniled Nations woulc have sovereignty over the islands and the United Stales would have immediate control over them.

The only reported casualties from the weapon were at Lakeview, Ore., where six persons were killed when some picnicking children found a balloon. The bomb exploded when the children picked it up. The Japanese used two lypes of balloons, one made of paper and another of silk especially trcaled lo prevent leakage. Both were filled with hydrogen. The persons who launched them followed their course by means of automatic radio signals sent by equipment carried on the weapon, intelligence reports said. The bombs were launched from three points on the northwest coasl of Japan and meteorological data was studied closely in order to prevent Ihem from eilher drilling back over Japan or falling on Russian territory.

Albert J. Fitzgcrlad. ?"lernntioii- 1 preside.nl of Uic CIO Unilet jlectrical Workers, announced al a.m. (EST; that the walkout in lants of General West- nghouse and General Motors wa. c '100 per cent effective, according o all bulletins received at the na ional headquarters up to tha line." Fitzgerald, said 57,000 women nnr 25,000 salaried and white colla workers were among those who eft their jobs. He said this was the argest number of women to striki :n recent years. Women and whit collar workers will be represenlei in picket lines, he said. The union president declared th walkout was 100 per cent cffectiy al 8 a. m. in plants at Philadelphi and Pittsburgh, Pa.; Lynn an Springfield, Mass., Schenectady N. Y.; Bloomfield, Neward an Jersey City, N. J., and Dayton, O. A tolal of 98,000 workers are employed in these planls. International headquarters of the union announced shortly after 6 a. m. that "the walkout began on schedule." Fitzgerald said: "Because of the refusal of the General Electric, Westinghouse and General Motors Corporations to grant the union's $2 a day wage demand, 200,000 employes have been compelled to go on strike." The strike involved a major part of the nation's production of home and industrial electrical appli- ices. Al Schenectady, N. Y., more than 16,000 production workers at the- General Electric Company plant, struck at 6 a. m. Union headquarters announced that picket lines were being organized. The strike meant, a complete shutdown of GE's largest plant. J. M. Howell, Schenectady works manager, had previously instructed salaried workers to remain home in the cvonl of a work slop- page. There arc between 10,000 and 12,000 salaried workers al the plant. Approximately 30,000 workers left their jobs in four Massachu- sells cilies. Fitzgerald announced al 7 a. m., thai GE's big plant at Lynn,'Mass., employing 16,000 persons., was shut down. Seven thousand pickets wore at the plant, he said. Possibilities that the strike might be averted faded yesterday when the union — the nation's third largest — the Labor Department in Washington and the firms —the ")ig three of the electrical industry — reported that no developments had arisen to postpone the walkout Virtually every type of electrical equipment, from tiny hearing aids to gi;mt locomotives and turbines, will be affected. The lisl of appliances made by the firms includes "terns off the market since Pearl Harbor and many vital to recon- version of oilier industries. Among other products, the firms manufacture electric refrigerators, radios, vacuum cleaners, electric stoves, lamps and lighl bulbs.

Va., Jan. 15 —(/ Seventy-five coast miners mira- iculously escaped alive today after a tremendous blast in the No. 9 Havaco mine on the outskirts of Welch, but the fate of 192 others was in doubt as rescuers drove into the smoke and dust-filled shaft workings. E. L. Chatfield, an inspector-at- large of the state mines department, said he was informed that 267 men were in the workings when the explosion occurred about 9:30 a. m. The force was so terrific that Negro pupils in a school house and workers in the store and office of the New River and Poachontas Consolidated Coal Company, from 500 to 1,000 feet away, were injured by shattered glass and debris. The mine is operated by New River and Pocahont'as. Pete Wimmer, 48-year-old company employe, told interviewers at a hospital following his escape from the blasted workings he "counted five men on my way out who looked like they might be cead." Wimmer said he was at work at a point approximately 3,000 feet from the main shaft. He was suffering from head injuries. Unofficial estimates said from a third to one-half of those coming from the mine alive walked up the shaft steps, which somehow remained intact although the tipple appeared to be a total wreck. The shaft is bout 400 feet deep. Others, had to be helped or dragged from the mine, and some of them apeared to be semi-conscious from shock. Hospitals of Welch, a city of 7,000. population and the county seat of the biggest bituminous- coal pro- -, ducing county in the United States, were quickly filled to overflowing with injured miners and children. seas 'raid." 3.
