It's "Kansas' Greatest -Fair"...... The State Fair of 1938 Is beyond question "Kansas' greatest fair," Dr. O. O. Wolf, of Ottawa, long a member of the state board of agriculture, and president of the Kansas Farm Bureau, declared today, after an inspection trip over the grounds. "The farm machinery show and highway equipment display is undoubtedly one of the most gigantic ever shown anywhere," Dr Wolf declared. "Of special interest to farmers are the tractors, tillage tools, irrigation plants and great exhibit of harvesting equipment. Here are acres of machinery being demonstrated. "The livestock show is a great! one. And the farm crops show inl Agricultural Hall Is the best dis ' play of Kansas products seen in years. It's a great fair. It's something of which all Kansas may well be proud."

C.,. western director of Die federal AAA program; H Umberger, state director of the extension department, Manhattan; L. C. Williams, assistant director of extension, Manhattan; and L. L.

Last Purge Vote Tuesday O'Connor Willi Brand Of While House Hale Seeks Re-election Washington (JP)~ The candidates for four senate and 87 house scats remain to be chosen at primaries and conventions in six states this month. New York winds up the procession on the last days of the month. At that time, Republican and Democratic conventions will pick the candidates for two senate seats. Next Tuesday, busiest of the remaining primary days, candidates for 84 of the house and two of the senate seats will be chosen. National interest will center on the outcome of the renominatlon fight of Rep. John J. O'Connor of New York, one of the four Democrats marked by President Roosevelt for political extinction. The   other   three - Senators George of Georgia, Smith of South Carolina and Tydings of Maryland -came through victorious.

Intercepted Letters- SEC. S. M. MITCHELL KANSAS STATE FAIR CITY Dear Sam: Either way, we'ro coming, but is it RODco or ro-DEYO? Yours, iiUlUl Perfect weather greeted the state fair opening today. The sun shone in a cloudless sky. The temperature was modest, with a fall tang in the air. A week-end of "fine late summer weather" was promised the entire state by S. D. Flora, federal meteorologist at Topeka. Today's minimum temperature in Hutchinson was 52 degrees, slightly higher than yesterday. Maximum yesterday was 73. The mercury rose higher today and was approaching 80 at noon. Temperatures By Mra. s. PlouGhe, U.S. Obaerver Maximum, 1 p. m.-81. Minimum today-52, A year ago today-High, low. 55. 75; Dishes May Be Used At Fair Grounds Eating Stands Get Temporary Order Against Board As a result of a district court action brought by a group of Hutchinson churches and individuals, the state board of health today was partially restrained from enforcing Its paper plate edict for state fair food and drink places. The temporary injunction granted by District Judge J. G. Somers applies to concessions operated by plaintiffs in the court action and to Ihe 4-H club building. As the matter stands, the health inspectors apparently may require other sellers of food and drink on the lair grounds to use paper service The state board had ordered that foods and drinks "at fairs and carnivals" must be served in paper containers. The only exeep tion applies to spoons, forks and Iknives, which must be washed in clean, hot, soapy water and then boiled five minutes. To Stand For Week While the restraining order granted today is classed as "temporary," it apparently is permanent so far as the 1038 state fair is concerned. Judge Somers said he does not expect to hear arguments as to a permanent injunction until after the fair. It happens that all plaintiffs in the action brought today operate their concessions in permanent structures. The court indicated, however, that the equipment for keeping dishes sanitary rather than the type of structure is the Important point. Protect Investment .Plaintiffs in the injunction ac tion declare they have at great expense acquired large numbers of dishes and glasses and installed expensive fixtures, equipment and plumbing for the purpose of keeping the dishes and glasses clean and sanitary. This equipment would be useless if the regulation is enforced, the petition sets forth, and the plaintiffs would be deprived of their property and rights without due process of law. The action is brought by the First Congregational church of Hutchinson, Beulah Beck et a!., doing business as The All-Ameri-can booth, a voluntary association: St.. Theresa's Catholic church, Floyd Griffith, First United Brethren church, L. L. Young, Hadley Methodist church, Bert Witt, D. Vannatta, Fred Prene, and Herman Vater. The concessionaires attack the paper plate regulation on grounds that it is void because the state board has no authority to make such a rule, an unreasonable and impracticable restriction, and because it discriminates against those who sell foods and drinks at fairs or carnivals. It is argued that such concession operators may have better equipment for keeping their plates and glasses clean than competing establishments not on fair or carnival, grounds. Paper Plates Catch Dust The plaintiffs d?clare that paper plates and cups may collect dust and are not as sanitary as clean glasses or ordinary plates. They say that a substantial pro- (Page 6, Column 7, Please) Too Many Passes Santa Monica.

The Legionnaires claimed the dice were "loaded." A companion of Dennis escaped with the "winnings."

President to Stay At Desk Cancels Engagement At Chattanooga Washington, (/P) - President Roosevelt cancelled today a speaking engagement at Chattanooga, Tenn., next Tuesday in order to remain here in- close touch will the delicate international situation. Stephen Early, White House secretary, told reporters the chief executive also has given Secretary Hull and other slate department officials the right-of-way into his office at any time. As further indication of the close watch Washington is keeping on Europe, Secretary of War Woodring cancelled his plans to attend the American Legion national convention in Los Angeles. The reason Woodring gave was "pressure of government business." State department chiefs now are coming and going at the White House as they please, keeping the president advised regarding latest international developments. The chief executive had been scheduled to speak at a celebration commemorating the battle i of Chickamauga, near Chattanooga. Previously, he cancelled a scheduled appearance at Pough-kecpsie, N. Y., today also on account of the foreign situation.   , Informed officials said, meanwhile, that the president's scries of conferences on the troubled international situation have clarified the administration's ideas as to the possible effect on the United States of a European war. Sudetens Are Exhorted to Remain Calm "New Leader Says To Pin Faith On German Dictator Prague (/P)-Ernst Kundt, Su deten deputy, appealed today to the German minority to be patient as Czechoslovak authorities prepared for possible disorders when Sudeten German communities realize their chief political party has been outlawed. Police, gendarmes and troops received special instructions for preserving order in Sudetenland Kundt, as floor leader of the dissolved Sudeten German party, issued a proclamation exhorting Germans to "wait" until Reichs fuehrer Hitler and British Prime Minister Chamberlain "have ended Iheir fateful conversations." Kundt Replaces Hcnleln Sudeten German circles said Kundt had become virtual lead er of the minority after Konrad Henlein, Wilhelm Sebckowsky ami other leaders fled to Germany. As a deputy, he has parliamentary immunity. 'Under political pressure of short-sighted elements which even now have not comprehended with what far-reaching decisions Europe is faced in this seriously critical situation," his proclamation read, "the government has deemed it expedient to liquidate the activity of the people's political organization of Sudeten Ger-mandom. "Reserving steps in tune with conditions, I tell you in my capacity of leader of your parliamentary group: "Do not let yourselves be confused by this party liquidation. Remain inwardly what you always were and wait until Adolf Hitler and Chamberlain have ended their fateful conversations. "Whether or not parties and organizations continue to exist is no longer decisive today. What is decisive for us is solely the future of Sudeten Germandom and our homeland. Until this fale has been decided remain strong, keep iron nerves. "God be with us." Czechs Patrol Roads Czech troops armed with rifles and bayonets continued to patrol streets and roads leading into the 16 Sudeten districts under martiai law. Police seized all documents in the Sudeten German party regional headquarters at Eger, near the German frontier. Paper also were confiscated in the Hotel Welce in Eger. Prague police were ordered to occupy all rooms and quarters of the party. The Czech government ordered the establishment of a ministry of propaganda with Hugo Vavrecka, former minister to Austria, in charge. Police were instructed to seize all radio apparatus used for broad- Sudetens Called Upon to Form Free Corps to Fight the Czechs (Page 6, Column 8, Please) Los Ahgeles Mayor Ousted Judge Named Mayor In Reform Move Los Angeles (/P) - Supc or Judge Fletcher Bowron was elevated today to mayor of Los Angeles by a plurality of more than 100.000 votes over Mayor Frank L. Shaw, target of reform groups in yesterday's recall election. Complete semi-official returns from the city's 2,516 precincts gave: Bowron, 232,686; Shaw, 122,-196; Alonzo Jchiol Riggs, 4,027: Lalbert F. Osterloh, 2,672. With approximately 45 per cent of the 818.989 registered voters casting ballots, the count for the recall of Mayor Shaw was: Yes, 235,395; No, 128,727. Shaw's recall was the first of a series of attempts since 1909 to unseat Los Angeles mayors to meet with success. It climaxed a campaign led by Clifford Clinton, cafeteria man, who charged that vice and crime were permitted to flourish under the Shaw administration. Clinton tried unsuccessfully to defeat Shaw in the regular election last year. Shaw was iirst chosen mayor in 1933, and reelected in 1937. Berlin (VP)-Konrad Henlein today proclaimed that his Sudeten German followers were "taking to arms and organizing a 'Sudeten free corps'" along the Czechoslovak-German border. The proclamation spoke to "tens of thousands of fellow countrymen" who were "forced to flee" Czechoslovakia into Germany "in order to escape losing their lives or being taken away as defenseless hostages." lias Hitler Sanction Because the free corps will be formed on the German side of the frontier it was obvious that Hcn-leln's action must have been approved by Adolph Hitler. The corps will be composed o! men trained in Ihe Czechoslovak army who fled across the border and became refugees. They are to be drilled, armed and organized against the day when they may be commanded to rush across the border. German lines operating on the Elbe river, both passenger and freight, announced that they have ceased crossing the border into Czechoslovakia. This announcement came almost simultaneously with Henlein's proclamation. His order for formation of the "free corps" was issued under an Asch, Czechoslovakia, dateline. Whereabouts of Henlein, sought by Czechoslovak authorities on a charge of treason since his proclamation of'Thursday calling for union with Germany was not known. His party has been outlawed by the Czechoslovak government.) The proclamation accused President Eduard Benes of Czechoslovakia of turning loose upon Sudeten Germans "hate-filled Czech soldiery" and said that in forming the "free corps" the Sudetens "assume for ourselves emergency rights which nations have taken at all times." I'nur Into Germany Sachscnthal-Georgenthal. Germany, (opposite the Czechoslovak frontier), W)-Sudeten Germans continued to pour into Germany today despite strict vigilance of Czechoslovak border patrols. Latest official figures placed theii number at 20,000. Border guards kept the otherwise dark territory lighted last night by firing flares into the sky so they could see fleeing Sudetens. Roads switching from the main road into Czechoslovakia are heavily barricaded with steel rails sunk into concrete about a foot apart and six lines deep, making it impossible for any vehicle or pedestrian to pass through. New York to Protect Food Strike of Truckers  Ties Up Shipments From New Jersey New York (IP)-Acting Mayor Newbold Morris said today emergency action would be taken to insure the "uninterrupted shipment'' of foodstuffs into the city as a three-day-old "outlaw" strike of insurgent truckmen halted hundreds of New Jersey trucks bringing food supplies through the Holland tunnel. Strike leaders insisted all perishable foods were permitted to pass the picket lines. Earlier, Abe Klein, chairman of rank and file committee, had said that only food destined for (hospitals, orphan asylums and persons on relief would be allowed to enter the city. Stopped at Entrance At least 100 large trucks, loaded with supplies from the New Jersey farms which-provide a large portion of New York's fresh food, Iwere parked near the tunnel at 10 a. m. Hundreds of others returned to New Jersey. Few drivers of incoming trucks Irefused to join the strike. "We've got a little holiday over here," strike pickets told the incoming drivers, "and we'd like to (have you pull over and come in with us." Klein, himself a .husky truck driver, contended the strike was "almost 100 per cent successful," with 13,000 men striking out of 15,000 men in the three union locals involved. "We will tic up all trucking, with the exception of relief and food trucks and those carrying hospital  supplies,"  he  said. Not Outlaw Strike Klein said the strike was "in icomplete accord" with the policy of William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor. "We are not fighting our executive officers," he said, countering statements by union officials that the strike was unauthorized. "We are in complete harmony." The strike developed two days jago over the union's demands for a 5-day, 40-hour week with a basic pay of S56.50 a week remaining unchanged. The men now work 47 hours. Good For Evil Furcell, Okla., (fP)-Jack Howard, cattleman, paid a $15 fine when Highway Patrolman Raymond Reuss arrested his truck driver for a traffic violation.

(/P)-Young Willie Tur-nesa of New York, playing a sue. cession of the most spectacular trap shots ever witnessed over Oakmonl's bunkered acres, took a commanding 5-up lead over Pat Abbott, Hollywood actor, half way in their 36-hole duel for the national amateur golf championship today. Turnesa, 23-year-old Bamblna of the famed Turnesa golfing family, had a merry ride for life as he scrambled in and out of the yawning, treacherous traps but in most cases he came out to win the hole from the lean, gaunt actor, who shot away his few chances by missing putts. On the 17th Abbott made perhaps the greatest shot of the week -a 7-iron that sailed 100 yards from a very deep trap to 2 feet of the hole. But he missed the putt and got only a half. Turncsa's medal, though he visited 11 traps, was 74, only 2 over par on a course where par has been licked only twice during the week's firing. Abbott's medal was 79. Abbott won only the second and 14th holes and had to shoot! birdie-par to   cet them,   � Fear Mongers Hit By FDR Delivers Constitution Speech From Distance Due to World Unrest Washington, (IP) - President Roosevelt criticized today "the professional fear-mongers of 1938." Speaking by radio from the oval diplomats' room at the White House in connection with a constitution observance at Poughkcepsie, N. Y., the chief executive asserted that "the patrons of ghosts and hobgoblins" of thu nations early history would have little to learn from present-day "fear-mongers." Mr. Roosevelt declared that to become "a workable instrument of government" the constitution needed men in every succeeding generation to administer it who were "as great as the men whu wrote it." Make It Workable "And the greatest of them," the president said with reference to those who have administered the constitution, "have been the men who have sought to make the constitution workable in the face of the new problems and conditions that have facad the nation from year to year. "Yes, the greatest of them have been those who have not said- It will not work; it cannot be done; it must be changed-' but rather those who have applied to the constitution of the United States the spirit of 'full faith and confidence' which has come down to us from the convention which met here in the summer of 1783." The chief executive devoted most of his brief address to a review of the ratification ot the corr-fitution by New York state convention at Poughkeepsie. His only reference lo world affairs was: "It is with deep personal disappointment that I find the affairs of the world such that I cannot be with my neighbors in Poughkeepsie  today."

Joint Action By Two Great Powers Seen Momentus Parleys Likely Tomorrow At No. 10 Downing London (/Pi-Britain's full cabinet Raced the stark tacts ot peace or war loay in more than five hours of consultation with Prime Minister Chamberlain, and placed her reliance in a swiftly called Sunday meeting of the British and French premiers. Premier Edmiard Daladior and Foreign Minister Georges Bonnet were called urgently to London from Paris to join in the final decisions which Chamberlain will take back to determined Adolf Hitler In Germany. The  Two  Proposals There arc the hard alternatives Chamberlain and Daladicr lacoc1: t. Shall Hitler in one form or another annex the Sudeten lands of Czechoslovakia and perhaps guidu the economic and political destinies of that unhappy democracy in an extension of Germany's power in central  Europe. 2. Can a formula be found lo give the German Fuehrer thee things and still guarantee an honorable existence of Ihe state of the Czechs and Slovaks acceptable lo the bold and desperate Prague government'.' Keep V. S. In Touch Through the United States Ambassador Joseph P, Kennedy, Prime Minister Chamberlain moved quickly to tell Washington what he had done. Daladicr and Bonnet will arrive in London Sunday morning by plane. Their meeting with Chamberlain and other key ministers o! the British cabinet was set for 11 a. m. After their two meetings, ending after 5 o'clock this evening, members of the British cabinet gave no Indication when they would meet again but another session tonight was thought unlikely. Even before the cabinet sessions had ended, the Italian ambassador conferred with officials at the foreign office. Two Cabinet Sessions The joint consultations were projected as the British cabinet met in its second session today to work out the government's policy in the Prague-Berlin quarrel which threatened to send Europe into the trenches. The cabinet meeting ended when the cabinet ministers began leaving No. 10 Downing Street around 5:40 p. m. after two sessions lasting a total ot more than five hours. The invitation to Daladicr and Bonnet was believed by observers to foreshadow decisive Anglo-French action in the face of Hitler's aggressive stand against the Czechoslovak government in Its dispute with the Sudeten German minority.
