MESSAGE COMES  THIS AFTERNOON  To Bethel College Äff afa  (By Associated Press) LAKELAND, Fla., M a y 24.—A compromise settlement of differences revolving 'about the faculty of Bethel College, the Presbyterian ohurch's school at McKenzie, Tenn., was adopted by the general assembly of the church today after a report by an education committee.  A controversy developed from the board of education's refusal to accede to demands of the education commission that President J. R. Whitmer be dismissed.  The new recommendations, incorporating. those of the board and a  BR1TT0N WINS FIRST AT BEAUTY EVENT  committee appointed jointly by the board and the assemply's investigating commission were that six retiring members of the board be replaced by men known to stand three and three in support of the board and commission. •  Commenting on the recommendations, leaders said that if accepted the new board would be aligned five to four for the policies of the commission.  The terms of three members of the board have not expired.  The resignation of President Whitmer, the report said, "has settled all controversy thereto."  The men known to favor policies of the education commission were recommended for board membership as,follows:  The Rev.

It was even a greater success than his first, given, last night, although he stuck to the same simple style.  After holding the guests spellbound for ten minutes with a most modes# description of his New York-Paris flight, he concluded: "I hope 1 haven't kept you too long," and sat down amid a terrific round of applause.  Captain Lindbergh is firmly established as an idol in France. Today, the third since he completed his memorable air journey, the enthusiasm of Parisians showed no sij^ns of waning and his natural simplicity was making fresh friends every hour:  The universal trend of affection felt for him among all classes and conditions of Frenchmen is absolutely unique. No honor, it is felt, can be adequate to express the national admiration. His every action is talked of eagerly by ;  the impressionable Gallic people; he is sung ,of by popular- 'bards, "Lindbergh; Sag&," is on every lip. Primitive bands consisting- of violin, guitar, and orchestra, peddle songs around in his honor in every market place, and square, the men warbling the verses through megaphones.  Xot Satisfied WIt.li Reading  • But the people are jiot satisfied with talking- and reading- about the hero, they wanted to see him, and they have had little opportunity thus far in his rapid trips from the American embassy escorted just like a sovereign by secret service men. It was with the idea of satisfying this popular desire that the city council fixed on Thursday, which is Ascension Day and a public holiday,, for a reception," so that as many as possible can get a glimpse of him.

No lives were lost, although a force of 2,000 or more was on the levee, Mr. Parker learned later from a source considered reliable.  News of the break was confirmed almost immediately from several other sources.

The negro woman had left a handkerchief on the counter, containing a bunch of house keys, but there was no nameplate on the ring, so it could not be used as a reliable clue.  It is thought that the woman picked up the money while Short's back was turned, but -she has not been, found to be questioned.  -o-  pared for immediate functioning, Director Parker said.  Lieut.

A large fleet of boats including coast guard cutters, steamers, tugis, surf boats and 1'fe boats, statIon«4 in the Atchafalaya and also ln Old river, is proceeding about the task of rescue. Smaller craft will be carried over the levee to float in the spreading waters as soon as floating depth is reached, to speed about their mission of rescue. Smaller boats placed at strategic points on the land side of the levels before the crevasse were ready for the emergency and authorities hope that no loss of life will result  Heeding the warning of former Governor Parker to the citizens of Pointe Coupee parish issued early last week when it became evident that the McCrea levee would probably fail, some 1,500 residents of the district immediately in the path of the crevasse had already evacuated to refugee camps at Baton Rouge, bringing livestock, chickens and property with them, while others had left to seek refuge with friends or relatives here or in other parishes,  Some, however, fears appeased, returned yesterday to their homes. Residents in others sections of the parish have made all preparations for immediate evacuation in case of a break, and Baton Rouge Is preparing: to receive the stream of fleeing flood victims today.

A wutK ago today, when early in .he morning the levee gave way at Melville, on the west bank below McCrea, the sudden resulting fall in the river increased'the velocity and force of the current which was pounding away at the bend on which McCi'ea is located, and it was evident that only a desperate battle could prevent disaster at the place.
