At a meeting of the city beautiful committee, called yes:eYday by Chair- man R. L. Hogue, it became evident tha this committee will function as never before, the city having been t, roused by former activities of wom- en's and other organizations to the point of readiness for more aggres- sive work looking to beautification.

BUILD SMALLER HOMES. Clarksdale Turns to Cheaper Resi- dences as Building Costs Advance. Clarksdale.--The high cost  liv- ing, the high costs of building and materials and the high cost of lots in Clarksdale are all contributing their bit in the development of a marked tenuncy towards the erection of the small home---the home which costs less than $4,000. Within the past few weeks more than half a dozen houses of this kind have been erected and there are scores who are con- templating similar buildings. In some few instances the owners are buying their lots and building small houses in the rear, which will he used later as servants" houses, but which are temporarily being used by the owners as residence quarters. The marity of the little home builders. however, are building in the center of their lots in such manner that the louse can be later added on to with additional rooms.

This recommendation is $2,- 500,000 below the Congressoinal au- thorization contained in the attended [lood control act of the ,last Con- gress. At the special executive hring before the budget committee ar- ranged for Thursday, Oct. 11,: a dele- gation representing the Mississippi River navigation and flood control interests will appear on behalf of the action of Congress in authorizing the appropriation of $10,000,000 a year for six years for continuing this im- portant work. Besides the presence here on that date of Representative Humphreys of Mississippi, Driver of Arkansas and 'Wilson of Louisiana, members of the House flood control commit- tee, there will be official representa- tives of the Mississippi Flood Con- trol Assoclaion of Memphis. Navi gtton interests of Pittsburgh and St. Louis will also be represented. Gen. Lord, chief of the budget committee, has restricted the mmm- bet of speeches, and because of this fact there will be heard one speak- er only from each state represented. Ben Humphreys will make the argu- ment for Mississippi, Judge Driver tr Arkansas and and Riley V;ilson for Louisiana. Some mmber of the delegation representing the Missis- sippi Flood Control Association of Memphis probably will appear for Tennessee. The chief source of apprehension on" the part of the Mississippi River interests is the partly revealed policy of the budget committee to trim to some extent equally every non-de- partmental item carrying an ap- propriation in excess of a" nominal sum. On the other hand, their cuse Is strengthened by the fact that Congress has twice authorized the appropriation of $10,000,000 a year for continuing flood ontrol work and the improvement of the channel of the Mississippi River.

A few of the 1,300 or more esTahimhments had obeyed the order, but the attitude of most of te pro- prietors apparently was one of placid defiance. the next step of the "dry" leaders was expected to be application to the gederd cots for injunctions under the padlock provision of the prohFol- tion law.

Senator Johnson is now tn Califor- nia fighting for hts political life. His foes, headed by Republican National Committeeman Win. H.

GENERAL M'CARiS ROUTED Bitterly Waged Contest Settled By Attorney-General's Opinion and to the Relief of Cabinet Members. Washington. -- The bitterly waged contest between Secretary of the Navy Denby and Comptroller General McCari as to whioh has final autnor- lty tn the disposition of navy depart- ment funds was settled in favor of Deaby when Attorney General Daugh- erty handed town an opinion uphold- ing the navy secretary. Daugherty's opinion completely routed McCarl. who contended that he alone had the final say as to whether navy department funds were beAng handled legally. Denpy, Daugh erty held, has final authority in such matters, subject only to courss. The news of Daugherty's opinion was received with relief by cabinet mem- bers here generally, as several gov- ernment h,eads have had disputes with McCarl as to the disposition of funds of their departments. McCarl has become known in the district as the "czar" and "dictator." The present dispute started when McCarl refused to approve 1)en4y's action in relieving bondsmen of a navy pay clerk who had been adjudg- ed guilty of embezzlement of $1Z,V7S of navy funds from responsibility to make good the defalcation. McCarl sought to have the bondsmen pay rue government the amount of the short- age; overriding Denby. Denby refused to subscribe to Mc- Carl's assertion of superior Judisdic- tion on navy money matters and re- ferred the case to Daugherty. In Go- Ing so, he explained his action in the pay clerk case, stating that the court martial which had convincted the clerk had recommended for good rea- sons that the clerk and his bondsmen be absolved frown responsibility for the [unda, as it was considered prob- able flt other parties than the clerk had oblained the money. In rendering his opinion in the case, Daugher ty held that Denby was fully authorid to certify to the comptroller general that the "defi- ciency" or loss af funds in the offl- ceffs 'account "'was incurred in the lines of duty and that the comptroller Is required to enter the certificatioa as given by the secretary of the navy, who Is, in the circumstances, respon- sible only to congress." NEGROES VISIT COOLIDGE. Urge Him to Act on Disorlmlnation Against Race.

The delegation also requested the president to put negroes in full ohsrge  the veterans' hospital at Tuskegee0 Ale.. and to withhold re, toration of complete diplomatic rels tions with Mexico until that repub- lic rescinds its present limitation on the immigration of negroes.

That Madison James and Clartssa Maxwell should be brought together was inevitable. They moved same social orbit. That they attract each other was quite natural. Ciarissa was thirty and Madison was thlrty-five. Not knowing the rea son of their having remained single so long their friends lnveuted resons to suit themselves. Clarissa, it WS decided, had remained unwed because of an early love affair. The young man had married somebody else or had died; the majority voted in favor Of death. Madtson had not married cause if he did so without the proval of an e.xtremety aged and tremely wealthy great-uncle he feited his chance to a large fortune, These reasons for celibacy were "e- tlrely satisfactory to their lnvent0rs but in point of fact .were without the slightest foundation. :Clarissa had had no early lee@ af- fair and Madison was possessed of no wealthy great-uncle of extreme age, or, in fact, of any great-uncle Of a sort. But now, everybody said, the end of their bachelorhood and splnste hood was approaching. Madison's . tediluvian great-uncle had approved and Clurlssa had locked up the mem ory of her youthful lover in the closet Of forgetfulness. The engagement was annonnced; |t only remained to fix the weddLg day.
