Plead for Separate
WARRENTON. Va.. Dec. 7.?A
lively debate has been held In the
Circuit Court here over a case of
legal separation of two sections of

for a division of the district, claimins
that the section below the main
line of the Southern Railway block

improvement and all other progressive
The lower end. represented by the
Commonwealth's attorney. William
Horgan, put up a spirited defense,
and brought witnesses to prove that
they are larger producers, better
customers and more progressive
generally than the upper-enders.
Even the question of personal appearance
was raised, one of the petitioners
alleging that the people
of the lower end "had a different
look." and the lower end maintaining
that they compared favorably
In this line also.
The upper end has but 1,400 population
and the legal limit of bonds
that could be issued there would
be inconsiderable for road building.

After Wounding Selves
Evidently Changed Minds
Letters Tell Story.
NORFOLK. Va., Dec. 7. ? Carrying

been a suicide pact. Victor Bishop
Wallam, a petty officer in the Navy,
and his pretty young wife Catherine,
of South Philadelphia, are In a
critical condition at a "local hospital
suffering from wounds inflicted
on throat and chest with a
pocket knife.
After the wounds had been inflicted
the husband apparently
changed his mint and called for
help, telling the neighbors that a
burglar had cut them. He later said
the cutting was done during a
nightmare. Two letters were found
in the room, one signed "Catherine"
and the other unsigned. The signed
letter was dated November 27, and
read, in part, as follows:
"Dear mother and dad: I am
writing y^u this letter to tell you
that I am going to do away with
myself. Death is so sweet, and
Victor and I are up against it; no
money and nowhere to go. so I am
saying goodbye."
The unsigned letter, supposed^to
have been written by the husband
Just before suicide was attempted,
reads'. "I am taking my wife with k
me. We are both sick of life. If |
possible, please cremate or bury us I
together and pray for us."

Constantine in Interview
Declares Self Poor Envoy;
Popular Soldier.
LUCERNE, Dec. 7.?MA poor diplomat,
but a popular soldier," was
King Constantlne's estimate of himself
in an interview here today.
Constantine declared that Greece
und^r his lealership will not abandon
any territory acquired under
the Sevres treaty. He confessed he
was compelled to trust the future
to itself in event the allies withhold
financial support.
The king's tall person still was
garbed in civilian clothes today, but
his apartments bustled with servants
preparing the royal wardrobe
for the return to Greece. Picturing
himself- as a soldier and a leader
of soldiers, it was believed he would
re-enter Athens in full uniform.
"I intend to abandon nothing
Greece received under the Sevres
treaty," he said, "nothing in Asia
Minor or elsewhere. This will mean
we will have to retain our armies.
I don't know how I can continue
the campaign without financial help
from the allies. But perhaps the
?.Ur* so,v? the problem.
"I shall endeavor to convince the
allies of my good faith and my devotion
to my country's interests
which the treaty made identical with
theirs in the Near East."
The King's face was lighted with
smiles when he declared he had
received hundreds of letters from
officers and soldiers in the Grecian
army saying the writers were "willing
to femain mobilised ten years
more" under him.
"I'm probably a bad diplomat, but
I am a popular soldier," he said, as
he shuffled the letters.
Constantine said he might not
leave for Athens before next week.
Judge F. O. Wagaman in the
Criminal Court here sentenced |
Henry Phillips, aged 84 years, to the
penitentiary for four years after
conviction of breaking a glass In
the jewelry store window of R. B.
Carson in daylight and stealing two
wrist watches.
The Judge told Phillips, who conducted-his
own trial, that his age
prevented him from imposing a
heavier sentence.

South-wide Acreage Reduction
Conference Begins
2-Day Session.
MEMPHIS. Tenn., JJec. 7?The
task of enforcing a reduction in
the 1921 Acreage of cotton will be
put in the hands of the State Banking
associations of the various cotton
This was decided at the opening
session of *the South wide Cotton
Acreage Reduction Conference,
which began a two-day session here
The 1000 Merchants, bankers,
planters and cotton men attending
unanimously elected Gov. J. M. Parker,
of Louisiana, as chairman of
the conference.. Leon Sternburger.
Memphis, was elected secretary.
Each cotton-growing State will
be organized for the purpose of assisting
banker^ In reducing cotton
acreage. A Danker merchant and >
farmer will be selected from each
State to direct 4he work. CoL W.
B. Thompson. New Orleans, was
named chairman of the committee
to pick these committees.
Though the conference was called
to discuss reduction of acreage. It
has so far devoted nearly all of
its time to discussing means of
financing cotton now on hand.
Gov. Tarker surprised the conference
by barely mentioning acreage
reduction in the opening address
Col. Thompson, however, declared
that a GO per cent reduction in 1021
acreage can alone save the South,
i He advocates holding the next crop
to 5.000.000 bales.
Some opposition is developing to
a radical reduction in acreage. Gov.
Parker indicated that he favors expansion
of credits rather than a
reduced crop.
' Gov. Parker agsin sprung a surprise
by his emphatic demand for
a protective tariff "sufficient to
guard the Southern producer against
1 other nations."
"Credit must be given Eurt>pe so
jit can take over the surplus products
of this country," Gov. Parker
said. /This credit should not be
for but ninety days, but a year
should be given the European buyer
in which to pay.
"The Federal Reserve banks in j
Working with members banks must ,
solve the problem of relieving the
glutted markets
"If local banks will guarantee
exchange for exports and the Federal
system will back them up. the
South will again be on the road
to prosperity."
