All the other members of the family, except a son who had gone to work, ·were taken to H hospital with hums and other injuries . . . Neiifhbors said firefighters rushed to t h e scene, only to find the house was « few hundred yards out- sfde th« city l i m i t s . The firemen said they could not f i f r h t the f i r e without permission of the mayor. By the time his approval had been received, the house had been reduced to anhes." What would Fayetteville do in a similar case? has been asked. The answer is simple and sure -- t h e firemen would answer t h e alarm and do their best to put out the fire and save Ifves. A itory in an edition of this newspaper this week reported alarms were answered in two cases, one inside the city limits and one outside. An ordinance passed not too lonjf ago allows fire equipment to be taken outside the city limits on order of the mayor or the fire chief. Under the iffterpretation the law receives here, if the fir* ehlef is not at hand, the acting chief has the same privilege. What it really amounts to is: The men on duty at-th* fire statfon are the judges of whether to fo or not. If it is a urass fire, the apparatus is not likely to be taken out of the city limits unless the fire is completely out. of control. If a house or other building is aflame, the equipment with proper manpower is dispatched to the scene. The ordfnance was passed to protKt those in charge in making such runs outside the city limits as are necessary. One section in the ordinance was written w i t h the expectation of (retting some remuneration for the city. It provides that when calls are tosued, t h e person receiving the help will be, informed of the cost to the city of the services rendered in answering such a call. If the person desires, he can make restitution-- there Is nothing mandatory about it, however. / Of course wp here in Favc'teville can not conceive of a group of firemen responding to an alarm and because they find the flames raying a few hundred feet outside the city l i m i t s , r e f u s i n p t o help put out the fire, or m a k i n g «,, effort to save lives of those trapped w i t h i n t h e b u r n i n j r building. Even if they had to break a c i t y statute, we would rightly expect our firemen to do t h e i r u t m o s t to help. That they don't have to break the l a w to answer an alarm outside the city l i m i t s is demonstrated almost, every week, as the Fire Department personnel and equipment respond to emergencies as t h e y arrive, even t h o u g h t h e alarms come to the station from out of the city l i m i t s - - +- A western woman had her cat insured for $2.000.

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round »t DREW PCAMOR Waihlnaton-- The State Department has itrueK a «na( with Dictator Franco of Spain regarding Ihe much-discussed n a v a l and air bases h« wa» nuppoied In give U.S. form in return for the |1J7,(X)0,OOI which Congress vulcd him When Ambassador SlantTM f j r i f f i s discussed base* with franco, tboul a year ago, he was effusive in hli a n x i e t y to do a n y t h i n g the Unilr-d -Statei wanted. In fact. It was Franco who took the i n i t i a t i v e In wanting American cash mid ther.' seemed to be nothing he wouldn't do in return. Now. however, hf Is just the opposite. He w a n t i American dollars to be spent in Spain only on his own terms. Specifically, the difference with Franco noils down to the fact th»t the U.S. Navy and Air Force want b»se« In Spain, w h i l e Franco wants modern military equipment for the Spanish Army. However, the tanks and heavy nrmor w h i c h he dernandi happen to he the things which the U. S Army Is short of. Priority on this cojiip- ment goes first to Korea, second In U. S. forces In this country, third to NATO allies in West Europe. Defense officials argue lhat to give Kranco modern army equipment before we send it lo France, Italy, Belgium, and other non- Fascial allies would cause a furor in Weslem F.urope. We are already far behind in our promise! to them. Furthermore, defense officials point out l h a t ' aren't much Interested in the Spanish A r m y anyway. Located on Ihe southern tip of Europe, It would be of no help In stopping the onrush of the Red Army over France and Belgium to the English Channel. What they are interested in Instead li «lr and naval bases in Spain. And regarding the»e Franco now seems much less enthusiastic. Franco hasn't said no in so many words, hut he seems to want the latest JlOO.nrio.onnn vn tr-d by Congress more or less w i t h no strings attached. * * * Meanwhile. Ihe State Department has been engaged in a lengthy painstaking, negotiation with Spain for the following: 1. Air and naval bases. 1. Technical aid agreement bv which the United States would supply technicians for the Improvement of Spanish agriculture, public health, etc. 1. Anti-discrimination against American investors. At present Franco has strict laws against foreign capital, and so far has not boon willing to change them. Negotiations for the above have now dragged on for thr*« to four months. But whereas the Spa.iish dictator was practically kissing Ambassador Orlffl« before the $100,000,000 was voted, now all he wants lo kiss Is the $100,- OtM), (KM). However, Congress voted that this was to be spent at the discretion of the president, and both the State Department and the Denfcnse Department have advised going slow. Franco lobbyists and friends In Congress are now pressuring to gel the 1100,000,000 spent tight away, without the commitment! demanded by the State Department.

How Time Mies Thirty Yeara Ago Today (Fayettevllle Daily Democrat. .June 27 I!122) About one hundred Fayetteville businessmen are spending the day in Madison County on a go:.,l-fellowship visit.

Twenty Team Ago Today (Fayetteville Daily Democrat, June 27, 1932) Highway 45 northeast of town is being re- b u i l t by the state highway department, beginning at the city limits. Large rocks which now form the base of the load arc being taken up and crushed to make a gravel surface. The work w i l l probably continue about three weeks. Seven men are at work on the road and work has been going on since Friday.

Shipped on the steamer Donna Aurora, they reached Manila bay on December H. the day the Japs bombed the Philippine capital.

Roberts. 1 I,ed by Dr. Roberts, we walkec i around and around thc tent in widening circle while the Docto played his light upon the earth an brush searching for some clue t I this newest mystery. "What are you looking for?" whispered to the Doctor. i His lips close to my ear, he saic "I've known bears to drag a der.i steer IS feet or more. It's not i t nice thought, but . . ." "Rears could not untie those ten [llaps!" "True," he said. "Too true." When finally we had found nothing, we began to retrace the wel dim trail to the lodge. Professor Ordell sobbed audibly a, we walked along. Thc Doctor said, "Please, Professor, remember this. The murdcier returned to your wife Tor some ren- son. He cannot escape as quickly with her body." Hut despite his kindly-meant winds, my mind went to the black, unsounded depths of Gold Lake. How easy to dispose of what wu lefl of poor Mrs. Ordell. Surely he realised Hint! At t h a t moment, Susie with a quick Jerk pulled away from me and went hack sniffing at thc lone- y tent. We followed as fast as the path would permit.

The old trail followed by the covered wagons traverses this hogback of the range. There are Iron-rust stains ;n the granite boulders to mark he way it takes.
