Independent Breaks Prece

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., October 19.—
A Democratic Representative who cam
paigned as an independent assumed
the senatorial toga of the late Joe
Robinson today through a precedent
breaking defeat of a New Deal Demo
Representative John E. Miller be
came the first independent candidate
to win a major Arkansas office in 77
years when he was elected over Gov.
Carl E. Bailey in yesterday’s special
The contested term expires January
1. 1943 and the 49-year-old Senator
elect said he would take his seat at the
special session November 15.

showed Miller with 61.528 votes to
40,390 for Bailey in 1,542 of 1,982 pre
Bailey projected the New Deal into
the campaign, terming Miller “anti
Roosevelt” and asserting a victory for
the Congressman would be a “slap in
the face for Franklin Delano Roose
Miller asserted today, “I most cer
uauu,v uw uut/ tuuoiuti uij v*vvv*v»i *.v
slap at President Roosevelt. The New
Deal was never involved in this cam
paign. although my opponent at
tempted to make it an issue.”
He earlier said he believed his vic
tory due to “the feeling of outrage on
the part of Arkansas citizens” over
Bailey’s nomination by the Democratic
State Executive Committee and the
Governor’s “refusal to join in the re
quest for a Democratic primary.”
Miller did not join the New Deal
issue squarely with Bailey, meeting the
latter's charges of disloyalty to the
President with the assertion that he
never had voted “against the best in
terests of Arkansas." He was sup
ported by Senator Hattie Caraway and
Robinson's widow.

spoken man who wins friends with
courteous attention and polished
manners. His favorite pastimes are
fishing and quail hunting.

Chancellor Due to Uphold
Rome-Berlin Axis in
Troops’ Recall.

LONDON, October 19.—Germany*
Chancellor Hitler was expected today
to send special instructions from his
Bavarian retreat which may mean
success or failure for European powers
trying to agree on a formula for with
drawal of foreign soldiery from Spain.
The reichschancellor’s attitude—
hitherto only a backdrop for Premier
Mussolini of Italy in these vital talks—
was projected to the forefront when
Hitler's Ambassador to London,
Joachim von Ribbentrop, made an
unexpected semi-secret flight to Ger
many to obtain Der Fuehrer’s views.
(A Munich dispatch said the
envoy arrived there last evening
and immediately proceeded to
Berchtesgaden to report to Hitler.)

It was doubtful whether he would
return here in time for resumption of

session this afternoon.
There was little doubt that Hitler's
orders would uphold the Rome-Berlin
friendship axis; and vieww of the week

for any immediate successful conclu
sion of the talks.
It was known that both Britain and
France were most skeptical of Italy's
statement, issued in Rome yesterday,
that only 40,000 Italians were fight

The diplomatic front of Paris ar.d

Tribute to Mrs. Priclictt
WASHINGTON has particular reason to mourn the wreck of the
United sky giant Mainliner, which crashed in the Uinta
Mountains of Utah Monday night. Among the passengers
lost was Mrs. Campbell Prichett, well known and much
admired in the residential set, but also generously appreciated in the
diplomatic and official circles of the Capital. The former Natalie Camp
bell. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James H. Campbell of Long Beach.’SCalif.,
had made her home here for a number of years with her aunt, Mrs.
IT ". *' t Kidnpv Clnman. It. seems incredible that
such a dynamic personality, loving life so
truly, could pass from the world so abruptly.
In recent months Mrs. Prichett had
been a valued contributor to the society
section of The Star. Her death brings in
expressible sadness to those persons with
whom she worked on this paper.
Proof of her popularity is manifest in
the story of a luncheon which was in prog
ress yesterday when the sorrowful news of
her probable death was received. The guests
included members of the diplomatic corps
and other equally distinguished friends.
But the shock of the realization that Nata
lie was gone forever was more than the
assembled company could conceal. Quietly,
P? then and there, the guests rose from the
table and the party terminated. Those

Mrs. Prichett was sincerity itself. She lived gracefully, never say
ing uncharitable things because she never thought uncharitable things.
Her sympathy, her natural kindliness and great generosity were assured
to everybody. Her untimely death leaves a void for many of us who will
remember gratefully her gallant and chivalrous example.

the President can say whether he will
run again, adding that the President,
if he did -run in 1940, would carry
all 48 States.
There are other presidential possi
bilities besides Mr. Parley who would
very much like to have the President
answer that question.
In the final chapter of their new
book, Casey and Bowles say: “As for
■Jim’ Parley and his ‘tomorrow,’, the
political bookmakers cannot go wrong
in quoting him as an odds-on favo
rite in the coming gubernatorial and
presidential derbies.”
The authors at some length under
take to show that President Roosevelt
would be risking his health, his politi
cal reputation and his popularity if he
sought a third term. In this connec
j tion they pointed out how politically
wise was Calvin Coolidge not to seek
what amounted to a third term. They
referred to Parley as the “founder of
a new intensive school of politics,” and
commented that “the truth is the Pres
ident must be a politician.”
Political Washington rubbed its
eyes today over a newly published
book, "Farley and Tomorrow.”
Written by John T. Casey and
James Bowles, and published by
Reilly & Lee Co., Chicago, the book
is frankly ft boost for Farley for
President in 1940, and for Governor
of New York in 1938.
The authors are described as two
newspaper men who have been close
to the Democratic headquarters for
Postmaster General Farley, the
subject of this new biography, was
out of the city and unavailable for
comment. However, there has been a
growing belief in some quarters here
that Mr. Farley has a desire to be the
Democratic presidential nominee in
In the event President Roosevelt
should determine to try for a third
term, Mr. Farley's ambitions for the
presidency, it is said, would beat at
least a temporary retreat. But. as

Lost Boy Is Camera Shy
This chubby lad thinks he’s Dickie Brown, thinks he’s about
3 yehrs old, isn’t aware of where he lives, but know’s he's lost

woman who said the dark-haired, brown-eyed boy told her he
