: ur Daily Bread d Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn_ Hope Star WBATHtft ARKANSAS w Generally warmer this ttternootit trow night Saturday. High 78 Low N 1 " > 'A j Hooves on the Rood The Drouth's Spark Continental Divide In our exchange copy of the DC- .Queen Daily Citizen I read the re- fot o£ State Police Trooper Rue Luter as to what happened • when •' cow walked out in Iront of a cai past Sunday night. Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Loomis o Tcxarkana were approaching i bridge when the cow blocked thi road. Mr. Loomis hit the brake and skidded into the bridge-railing His wife was thrown out and criti cally injured. The car sustained 9700 damage — but the cow appar- j|Cnlly escaped. Trooper Luter warned the Scvier county public that there is a law ag-ainst letting livestock graze along public highways — a state-wide stocklaw nowadays, I should add. But the real point of this piece is that we arc facing the same sort of thing here in our county. Cattle are grazing along State Highway No. 4 between Hope and Nashville with increasing regularity, and the violations occur with- n the Hempstcad county boundary. This is no heresay report. I am the witness, and 1 see the same thing every time I go up No. 4. How about a friendly warning to the folks involved? 54TH YEAR: VOL 54 — NO. 17 ».r of M«M IfW. fr.u 1M7 CantolMaMd Jan.

You get into your car, slide across the plastic scat cover, and when your hand touches the steering-wheel a spark knodcs the fire out of yoli. ^ Eldon Coffman, Hope theater man ager, tells me he was shocked kissing his wife goodby between dinner and the evening show hour. If this happens to married folks you can sec how an automobile -ft is becoming positively dangerous for tcen-Ht-ers. Static's social angle is a relatively new development, brought on by the long buildup ot dryness. But around industrial plants it's an old and unpleasant character. Oil men fear it. That's why you see a 'chain hanging from the real- end of a tanker truck with a roller touching Ihc pavement — to draw off static electricity and ,0^ avert tiro. Static, bothers -no w.spapcr %ilants. ' ' l lf\ dry weather there is a tremendous electrical buildup in the broad Webb of newsprint as it unrolls through the press. Put your arm near the moving paper and you feel the bristles rise. Static causes many a break in a paper roll that would run without trouble in normal .weather. , Can you imagine anything more '•uninteresting than the annual convention of the American Numismatic association (coin, collecting hobbyists)'.' The Dallas'News couldn't, until a smart press agent though! up some new words for a Subject as old as the human race. The smart operator, according to the Dallas News, got the convention to feature "a display of -coins dating from the time of England's first Queen | Elizabeth. They trace the degree of dip taken by necklines on famous female sovereigns who sat for their portraits on coin of the realm. "An enterprising. United Press reporter got a preview of the display. He : 'finds that Russia's Catherine the Great and Britain's Anne posed irt gowns that would be banned on television today. Others bpldly H displaying the deep dip were Maria Theresa of Austria, Louisa ot Prussia',' and the beautiful young Empress Elizabeth of Austria-Hungary." My postscript: 'How inconsistent 9an you be and still stay within tho Jiuman race? Too low for television; and they'd revoke a news paper editor's mailing permit for Dublishing a photograph — but it's all right for money, greater circulation than which there is none . . .

(UP) — Many Ohio voters are oxpcctod by somi observers to express divided loyal 'ties at the polls Tuesday. Political experts snid many voters in the state still haven't made up their minds, but they saw evidence that a Republican, Senator John W. Bricker is likely to be returned to Washington while they expect Democratic Gov. Frank J. ..ausche to win his fourth term. Populous Cleveland, Akron anii Youngslown, all industrial centers, have been Democratic slronRh,olds. But the Democrats have slipped in these areas since the landslide of 1936, these cxpcits believe.

A, The bo4y By HAL BOYLE • MADRID,- Spain OT1 — Spain has come up with 1 a curious program for tho problem of inflation which now bedcvcls almost every modern land. After losing its attempt to keep prices in check during the past year, Spain has decided to try holding the fort by granting a series of cash bonuses to workers instead of flat salary increases. This is a cpmprpmise worked out by Generalissimo Francisco Franco's advisers, ; who earlier Uckud Spain's black market problem by doing away with bisarre economic experiments that had crippled individual effort here. The stop-gap compromise calls for one or more monthly salary bonuses to afl employes of private firms — bonuses to be paid entirely by the employer., Jt was adopted after a heated argument between Spain's labor minuter and the min. l«ter ol commerce, The Ifrbor mlniiter jaid the work ers simply could not Uve on their feeding and clothing himself and family (arid told It's patriotic to have more and more children) on 14 to is pesetas a day.
