Eight Months After jfctt/lMJAM R. ATKINS entered the penitentiary Friday, and (-{"I? The Star considers the cause of good government to 'have been well served. ,The McCaskill banker was sentenced in Hempstead cir< £tut cottrt on Monday, April 13 last. A lot of things happened i that week. The next day, Tuesday, April 14, Atkins went to Little *th Ms "attorney, and before night he was a'free man around the streets of the state capital although bnly ' ir hours before a circuit judge had solemnly sent- to four years in state prison. 'He had been given an indefinite furlough by the acting ^governor, Lieut-Gov. Lawrence Wilson. "'•' ' News 'of that furloguh reached Hope in the Arkansas ypnuKrat "Wednesday, April 15—but it was not until Thurs- lay, April 16 'that The Star identified the man freed at Little lock a* being the trast officer who went south with the funds lot a local rural bank. . • Oar-editorial of the 16th "congratulating" the lieutenant" Vyjras-telegraphed;totattle Rockand appeared in.the ^«^js^e<^^i;un^r1|: top-headline the following niDrn- ;,-HlJr, Friday, April 17. The rumble heard around the state ||becanieva great scandal—and i:he politicians went for coyer, *|We mention the-1(3(izefte : in this connection, and the Gazette's jHope^ correspondent Talbot Feild, because their co-operation '.helped wonderfully. -If the newspapers generally stick to'""*' w "", it is only- because most of the public sticks toegther when a completely rotten fraud lines up the people on one | > side and the politicians on the other. f , The deed that freed Atkin's'was done in a moment. But Vf it took eight months to get him back to the penitentary. t."; In this connection it would be well to recall that the U biggest part of The Star's expose was the spiking of the poli- p, 'ticians' claim that the furlough was granted on a "petition" ^"^fromihia county. This newspaper forced the lieutenant-gov- <•• ^.ernor to publish his alleged petition, and although he said it ^/Contained "several hundred names" it actually showed only §|**105 names—and we further showeet that at the time he grant/Ved this executive clemency he had in his files a petition op- >f< posing clemency of more than 160 names! * ' The law of Arkansas says that before the governor may <"M " grant a pardon the list of petitioners from the prisoner's ', home county must be published in the newspaper of thai K, county, and then after a suitable time the pardon may be * granted. 'Rie purpose of the law is clear. It sought to prevenl H pardons from being issued secretly and under corrupt cir;, cumstances. It sought to compel people who aided criminals ¥ to get out in the open with their aid. & If a man is deserving of a pardon then you and I, if we / sign his petition, can have no objection to letting the home community know just where we stand. r \ Responsibility for law and order rests with the local community! The law of Arkansas in effect says that—anc we have just closed up a pardon scandal case which proves i1 truer ever day. But the politicians have dodged the law. Instead of granting pardons, which the law specifically recognizes, they grant "indefinite furloughs," which are the same thing as a pardon, but never have been defined by law. So the publication clause of the pardon law fails to govern "indefinite furloughs," and through this loop-hole our state politicians have been frustrating the courts and bamboozling the people, except; when some newspaper rises up and slams the door in a startled politician's face. will say that the cure for this evil is to have the leg 4< The Hme, the Phice,and- M --— •— ' "~'"""°** J ltl»Jiil i lull"•••""!• •• Announce 1931 AH-Awerk an Do You TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO Misses rHazel Johnson and Edna Ca- Grone arrived'.home yesterday from Galloway ^College-for the holidays. : Miss Carrie White came home-from Salloway College Friday to spend the holidays.

And the people will be wise if they watch for coming Corn and Aiitos AN V/r< of the most interesting bits of statistics presented recently cornea from Robley Winfrey of the f Iowa State College Engineering Experiment Station, who has discovered that Iowa's annual automobile bill exceeds its annual income from the famous Iowa corn crop. Thug, in 1930, the people of Iowa spent more than $290,000,000 on their autoa. The average income derived from Iowa corn comes to about $255,000,000. Just what may be the significance of all this—if.indeeel it has any significance—is not clear. But it is, as we say, interesting.

One of the fictions around a newspaper off ice is that a newspaper makes an easy road to the writing of fiction. From what I have observed, it is about like any other rood— long and hard, consuming an entire life-time, and the travelers along that road are rewarded according to their various talents. :.**»«, ; -.;> • '<! I was thinking of that Thursday night watching the story, of "Twen'ty- Foiir Hours' unfold on the screen at the Saenger theater. - Taken from a novel by Louis Bromfield, it was adapted! to the screen by Louis Weit- zenkom, from my home town. .-; ' Louis Weitzenkorn also wrote "Five-Star Flhal;" v/hich "comes" Saenger January 17-18. He wrote-i it originally • as a stage play which ran all last year in New York. It waa a very great success, and I presume Weitzenkorn has made a fortune out of the play and the motion picture. Weitzenkorn is • the son of millionaire department store owner 'in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.- He was several years older than me, and his crowd of boys -went-off to school before any of our crowd really got to know them. ' Weitzenkorn became a newspaper, man. He was literary editor of the New York World when I met him one winter day in New York in 1922. Already I had heard something of his career. He .had had one stroke of. good fortune, selling seven stories to the old Metropolitan magazine— but "click," and from that time tintil now 'I think he has supported himself en tirely from a newspaper man's salary —until his writing of "The -Five-Star Final.' Few people who interest themselves casually in the writing of fiction ever stop to think of the years of toil pu in 'by those who actually :'reach the top. Weitzenkorn was a Jew. He married a Catholic girl, in New York and his family back in Wilkes-Barre ostracized him. Men ar,e with equal'facility kicked out of the synagogue,'the Catholic cathedral, «r -our own Protestant churches. Weitzenkorn was thus kick, ed out. '.;,'. - . - .-,^.. >• ,.-..' . But hW wife died. He married Jewish girl—and 'his family invitee him to' -return home. As I recall, Weitzenkprn told his family jusl about-what you would expect a man to -tell 'them under the circumstances. From one point of view, his career is -distressing. Religious and .family rows don't make-pleasant reading. ,'From anqtljer point of view, there is a {ouch', of'humor to his story. Now he is famous, his family and home town are proud of him—and I suppose he had to go home in spite of himself. And from still a third* point of view, I recollect he has been fifteen years or more getting on to wherever he is today. And that's- a most respectable time to anyone 'who imagines after that came the drouth. He didn't field. there is an easy road to success in any Battle Field Mr. and Mrs. Hansel Rogers from El Dorado have been recent visitors with relatives at this place.

The players chosen re! s Backs: Wood, Harvard, quartergack, Schwartz, Notre Daiiie, left halfback; Rerttner, Northwestern, right halfback; Shaver, Southern California, fulltwek. Ends: Dalfymple, Tulane, left end, native of Rosston, Arkansas; Smith, Georgia, right end. Line: Quatse, Pittsburgh, left tackle Schwegler, Washington, right tackle; Munn, Minnesota, left guard, Hick, man, Tennessee, right guard; Morrison, Michigan, center. The eleven men finally selected for the Walter Camp gold footballs are credited by the. judges with having "a greater combination of speed and power than any team named In years." Dalrymple is the only man on the 1931 list who also appeared on the All-America last year. Credit for the most spectacular Gcia.ogrvt elnaFgsh sh shrd shrd hh play of the season goes to a star -who is not selected for the team. "The greatest run of the year," say the judges, "was made by Ray Sleeker of the Army in the game against Notre Dame." The football season of 1931 is characterized by the selection committee as "bewildering," owing to the fact that many strong teams which began the campaign with a dash, finished sprawled out. "Notre Dame started with a wild sweep and then fell before Southern California and the Army," the judges comment. "Yale won no major game up to her Harvard test and Harvard had won every game until the Yale meeting, yet it was' the Blue that fluttered above the Crimson when the two met. "Tulane alone, with its speed and smoothness, finished November at full -strnegth. The wear and tear showed on Georgia, Notre Dame, Northwestern and Harvard to a warked degree, and ail this must be taken into consideration when one starts • to consider the , work of individual stars. They often rise and fall as their teams rise and fall, for they are all a part of the organization which they represent. "There were more than the usual number of Injuries this year, due in part to ineorect blocking, the hardest and roughest part of the game. The West Coast again proved its strength with victories over Minnesota, Notre Dame and Darmouth. The South had one of Its -greatest years. The Mid-, west had a strong 'general average. The East was more spotty 'than usual The closest competition for th prized ,£0ld trophies designed _ iwaiter.' Caijip crime among the en selection. Dalrymple. was out in fron with something to spare. But Smitl Orsi and Cronkite were in a driv ing finish and Smith of Georgia wa finall ygiven the edge in considera tion of the terrific schedule he had t face, whch included ten hard -game and almost no respite from one wee to another. The comment of the judges on thei other selections is as follows: "Naturally the backfield battle wa close. If Shaver had been placed a quarterback, Gene McEver of Ten nessee would have drawn the full back assignment. Morton of Dart mouth was nearest Wood in the Eas but Wood rose to breater heights a :imes and his all-around effective ness as a team director was more con istent. Ray Sleeker of the Army anc Mckard of Harvard were two othei outstanding stars. It has been a long time since any All-America backfield had such n liversity of skill as Rentner, Schwartz and Shaver can show. Each of- the jacks selected was forced to face leavy schedule. "The battle for line positions was ust as keen as the battle of the backs 'he final selection brought out one emarkable turn—this is probably the eaviest All-America line ever ected, and yet one of the fastest and one of the most aggressive. The av erage weight of the line from tackl .o tackle is 215T pounds and yet then sn't a slow-moving man in thi roup." In addition to the eleven men nam ed for the awards, the following players were judged to be "of all-merica alibre," and were considered in mak n gthe final choice.
