HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Proposal to Divide Austria Creates Another Tense Situation in Europe By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst | ••'Britisn Foreign Secretary Ernest • Bevin is one ot Europe's most outspoken statesmen, as witness his bluni assertion during debate in the House of Commons that the Austrian situation "is very delicate at tho present moment"'and that he- didn't .know "wnether eastern Austria may even be cut off.' ' ' • This- statement of course is interpreted as referring to th» possibility that eastern Austria — w.'iich is occupied by Russia and j contains the major portion of the • country's industrial capacity—may '.be severed and become a unit in »• the --permanent.-Soviet zone of in Hope Star Star of Hope 1899; Press 1°J7, Consolidated January 18, 1929 Published every weekday afternoon by STAR PUBLISHING CO.

Jews Bargain for Acceptance of British Plan By ROMNEY WHEELER Paris, July 27 -i<Pi— Well informed Jewish sources said today that the immediate admission of 100,000 Jews to Palestine apparently would be the price for any Jewish acceptance of a British- American cabinet committee plan for partitinn of the Holy Land.

' when.a.-was,in. Austria in March, , Dr. Karl Rehner, the president, gave me' his view of this imbroglio. This was just at.the time ior- •—nsct—-British. -Prime Minister ^ Churchill made his sensational at- t tack on Russia in his Missouri speech,..and Dr. ^enner. referred.to P * «':,.' '- •' ' -: "We'have one main sorrow — . just now aroused by the dispute • between Churchill and Stalin. The ' unity of the'world is our life, and the end of. unity would be ihe end , 01 Austria. I hope that there will . be agreement between the Western Allies and Russia. I hope that in • this agreement Austria will not be ; forgotten. We have a Parliament , and government'which can't gov- . ern at all because there are lour » military governments. We hope a t treaty will'give us back the whole . power over industry, agriculture, commerce and transportation." ' Well, since then Austria has lost most of her industries to Russia .. But'yesterday came a sudden and „ remarkable reaction by the un- H. happy Vienna government. The «. legislature took the initiative and «. defied the Soviet by unanimously *» approving nationalization of key *» industries, including some claimed ^ by Moscow as reparations. This ac- M tion was taken in face of Soviet .», warning not to do it, and thus the ,,. delicate situation of which Mr « Bevin spoke has jumped into the s* super class. • The reaction of Russia and the ^ Western Allies wasn't immediately ** registered, but it is a tense mo""* ment. -o r OPA Is Continued from Page One *!c The possibility that the scalv 'ibe sometimes gets too not io ea'l has been advanced by Game and risn Commission experts in Lilllt Rock.

Vote For o' HOPE For State Senator TUESDAY, JULY 30 Dr. Crow is a native of Arkansas, the son of a native of Arkansas and the grandson of a Confederate Veteran. He understands the problems of the people of the South. A country doctor deals with persons of all walks of life. The rich, the poor, the old, the young, the farmer and the city citizen. No one' is so well qualified to understand the needs of every citizen as the family doctor. That perhaps accounts for the fact so many citizens of Arkansas each election year choose some type of doctor to represent them in our Legislative Halls. Each county of this Senatorial District is touched by a county that has a Doctor of Medicine representing the citizens in the Legislature. Dr. Crow is vitally interested in the improvement of our roads. Dr. Crow is interested in improving our welfare program. Dr. Crow is interested in improving our schools and the betterment of the lot of our teachers. Dr. Crow proposes no change in our existing healing laws but does have a burning ambition to see his two sons and his Foster son-in-law complete their Education in Medicine and Surgery and return to our District and serve suffering humanity (his eldest son's application for enrollment in our tax supported school of Medicine at Little Rock has already been approved). Dr. Crow is an Ex-Marine and was discharged because of disability in line of duty. Dr. Crow lacked only a few votes being elected to this post four years ago. Won't you join with the many others in upholding our traditional Democratic custom and say "It's Crow's time this time for the State Senate"? Let's send new blood to our Legislative Halls. If the pie is good pass it around. If it is bad let's not burden any one man too much. GO TO THE POLLS TUESDAY, JULY 30 and VOTE FOR Dr. F. C. Crow of Hope TATE~SENATOR —This Ad Paid for by Dr. F. C.

Bui it was not until the Christmas thai she was six and Corinna four that 1 saw the pattern Cecily's life was I lu follow. 3 >;< * VI I invited Delia to bring her lamily to my house for Christ- :nas Eve, but Cecily developed tho Mill ties and Delia decided to put her to bed al home instead. She did not ask us to spend the evening or any part of Christmas Day willi them—that would have cn- lailed a dinner and Delia thought entertaining was a waste of money. I had decorated small twin I trees fur the two little girls, urap- '"K them with old-fashioned strings of fat white popcorn kernels and scarlet cranberries, Co-, rlftna had' made long chains of colored paper and I had hung the blanches with them and with gold and silver nuts, gingerbread men, cookie stars frosted red and | green, clothespin angels with silver robes and wigs of spun glass. They were beautiful and simple iltlc things, In place of money I had spent time and effort on them and on the wardrobes of Iwo small blue-eyed dolls. The babies had real hair and eyelashes; their eyes closed and they cried convincingly. 1 had saved for six months to buy them and I had sewed for weeks Io fill Ihc pink and blue trunks that came with them. Robert made twin cradles, painting one pink and one pale blue. They were complete with feather mattresses and pillows hemstitched sheets and pillow shams, and dainty patch quills. I was proud of them and happy over Ihc anticipation of Ccciiy's cry of delight when 1 rang Delia's bell in Ihc afternoon of Dec 24 w w w Delia met me al the door Cecily had just gone to sleep, she informed me—she seemed to be coming down with something. She pei-milled me to come in and sel the tree on a stand by the window with the doll things under it. Ihe picture they made hurl. "ion shouldn't have spent the money," Delia criticized. "You know Thornc and 1 arc perfectly able—" J "I wanted to," I defended. 1 was so disappointed at not seeing Cecily thai tears were close. "It was nice of you," Delia commented wilhoul enthusiasm. At homo again I throw myself on tho bod and sobbed until nearly liliic- for Robert to come homo. C'orinna's pleasure in her gifts was all thai 1 hoped Ccciiy's would be. 1 hoard nothing from Delia thai evening. Al 11 o'clock the next morning I called her. eager to know what Cecily had said when she received my gifts. "How is Cecily this morning''" "Oh, she's fine," Delia said. "I'll probably have her on my hands :;ick ag.ain alter all the excitement but 1 guess it's worth it." I laughed and the ache in my heart grew less acute. "She liked Ihc doll, then'.'" "Oh yes, pretty well," Delia said, "bui of course she gol so much other stuff thai she hasn't paid any real attention to it yet." "So much —other stuff?" I faltered. "Who —brought it to her?" "Well, who do you suppose''" Delia retorted. "Alter you loft 1 talked to Thornc and we decided that she was old enough now to have a real Christmas — so 1 bought out the slorcs." I tried Io speak bul only an Garbage Disposal Kdilor The Star: Some of the reasons I think the collodion of garbage by Ihc city should be compulsory arc these: First, there is nothing that adds more to the beauty -md moral chat actor ot a town or city than cleanliness, and with the garbage pioblcm as it is today Hope is far Jrom being clean. We may not have many attractions that larger cilies have, but if our city is n'cat mid clean each cilix.en in it will have a personal pride in it and Ihose passing through pur community will be favorably impressed. Cleanliness is a great asset foi growth in every worth-while way With gaibage cans filled to capacity and no way to remove them,we Imd ourselves in daily combat with a huge gremlin we can not do much with or about: "The menace of spoiled garbage,' Second, the health value of the quick disposal of garbage al any time, bul particularly in hot weather, is a subject that even elementary school children know about. Third, the day apparently is here when the housowilc must do countless tasks that heretofore she has been able to hire common labor to do, and many Hope housewives haven t the proper, or, I should say 'haven't any 1 ,' uicililics for the disposal of their garbage. Fourth, to find someone who can be depended upon to remove garbage regularly is almost an impossibility. * Fifth, the city is financially able to go into the business as a municipal venture, .and I think that not only from the standpoint of duty but from that of civic pride and of clean progressivencss it should begin immediately to make it its business to help its citizens by col- eclmg garbage often and regularly. And, the garbage should, by all means, be picked up from the back yards and not from the slrccts If Ihe cily feels 11 is financially 'unable Io collect the garbage, f am sure every housewife or owner in Hope would be willing to pay a reasonable price for regular, dependable garbage disposal service. Sixth, when housewives and mothers have a few spare moments from their usual run of every-day tasks, they have many things to do that arc more valuable in building the right kind of homos for today -and tomorrow than disposing of the garbage thai collecls in the metal cans during the day. And, no man can anticipate the hour when he must go home from a hard day s work at the office or slorc Io cmply ihe garbage can. T . CITIZEN July 25, 194G Hope, Ark.

"I'll sec you next week," she said, and hung up. "Now, what?" Robert asked when I went back to the livinp room, stormy eyed. I poured my resentment into my husband's sympathclic cars. "It's my fault," I said bitterly. f knew thai Robert, too, must have been thinking of thai five- year pasl opportunity with its good salary and prestige. "Never mind," Robert soothed 'Corinna will never be happier than she is this minute. And—" he looked apologetic, "I told three ot tho lilllo codgers from across Marlm street to drop in this afternoon. Do you suppose we'll have dinner enough for them? They wont' got any al home."

We, the WomerT By RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer "Arthur and I arc not getting a divorce,' Mrs. Arthur Wermulh m answer to Ihc announcement of a Denver, Colo., mother thai her 22 - year - old daughter planned to marry the one-man Army of Bat-aan as soon as his wife obtained a divorce. "We arc not gelling a divorce.' if Ihat courageous and final stand became Ihc battle cry of every wife in America, the divorce rale would head downward instead of up and up and up. But nobody urges wives to take that stand. Instead, they are told iney must fight the other woman with her own weapons. That they must out-shine, ouWlatter. out- attract her —beat her at her own game. It doesn't matter that the other woman may be 10 or 20 years younger; that the wife may have to spend her time being a mother instead of a glamor girl; that she may be too busy ironing her husband's shirt sand cooking his meals Io "keep up with his in lerests.' If She Loses? She is just told to compete with the other woman, letting the otiinr woman choose the weapons. And if tho wife loses — well, that's just too bad. She is supposed to be a good sport about it and turn her husband over to the other woman It's pretty silly, isn't it? When the results are broken marringe vows, broken homes, and half- orphaned children — if children are involved. A wife has only one real advantage over the other woman. Siic is married to the man. If she has enough courage to say simply and finally, "Wo are not gelling a divorce," she can sit back and let the other woman do the worrying. Ponder, Sponsors. Evening Worship — 7:45.

It is only those who have lost their loved ones and whose sun of happiness ha; gone down forever, who realize that the old, lush, comfortable days are now nothing but a nostalgic memory, whose like we shall never see again. The balance of us have not yet sensed that the war has changed our manners and our customs and our morals and every detail of our daily loves so that we are literally strangers in a strange land, not knowing how to adjust ourselves to the now order of things. As in every social upheaval, tho brunt of the suffering falls heaviest on women because they are, by nature, more creatures of habit than men are, and because nearly all women have little children and old people clinging to their skirls. To them marriage has always been the -ark of safety to which they fled in every crisis, but war has shut that door in their faces. And it is only wishful thinking that makes even the most optimistic think that the wedding bells arc certain to ring for them. Low Supply of Men Statistics show that the supply of eligible men is at its lowest ebb. Millions of women will not be able to get husbands because there just aren't enough to go around. Millions of women who have husbands will lose their spouses to predatory ladies who have no scruples against robbing a sister woman of her treasure. And still other millions of women will have to support husbands who arc not able to work by reason of their infirmities. So now, as never before, it behooves every girl to scrap her dream of marriage as a means of livelihood. The war has changed all of that, and every little bobby-soekcr should begin preparing herself to be her own meal ticket, if she wishes to eat. Before the war it was generally conceded that the place for a mother was in her own home, taking Just Received Shipment R. C.A.VICTOR RADIOS Both Battery and Electric ARCHER MOTOR CO. Phone 838 Hope, Ark. care of her children, and that she failed in her duly when she spent her time pursuing a career instead of keeping her kids out of the juvenile courts. But the war has made what was the fad of restless women a necessity. Many women with children lost their husbands in battle. And every divorce court has its list of shame of husbands and fathers who left their wives and children to starve, while they disported themselves with glamour girls. No soldier who stood at his post and did his duty during the war was a greater hero than these women, who have gone to work at any job they could get, to keep some sort of home together, and to support their children. They have tolder like slaves because, after their hard day's work was over at factory or office, they have sat up half the night cooking their children's food, washing their clothes, patching and darning so that they might not be too much ashamed when they went to school. C'est la guerre! Perhaps it cannot be helped, but the war that has brought about so many heartbreaking changes should at least bring one that is beneficial, and that is to establish hundreds and hundreds of creches and kindergarten schools where working mothers can leave their babies, sure of their being safe and well taken care of, and community kitchens where tired and overwrought women and their youngsters can have good food, well-prepared, that they have not had to cook themselves and at prices they can afford (Bell Syndicate, Inc.)
