He is the nightmare, the haber- horror, the barber's he is the only man who can away with all this. Earlier in the month the city government had agreed to help the stock show out of the hole in which it has found itself since the invalidation of tax funds authorized by the 1953 legislature. Tuesday night's meeting, to work out a detailed program, brought to- Two Judges Seek Only One Bench LITTLE ROCK L?) — The case of iwo judges and only one bench will be settled in court, with Fran* H. Cox trying to wrest the Little Rock traffic judgeship from Mm ray O, Reed. Cox, elected by the Little Rock City Council, says that he will let Reed serve until the case is set- lied in court but he plsns to file suit in Pulaski Circuit Court. Reed was appointed by Gov. Francis Cherry Dec. 10 to succeed William J. Kirby, after Atty. Gen. Tom Gentry said that the governor had that authority. Little Rock City Atty. O. D. Longstreth Jr. contends that the council has sole authority to fill the Vacancy. There is something extraordinary about Santa Claus. There is something outrageous about Santa Claus.

Citizen) Our whimsical friend, the Charlotte News, borrowed itself a peck through the "off" winter season. But in' view of the banks' position it was discovered it would be necessary to handle this $40,000 total with a bond issue. The local schools' interest was explained by the fact that: a new gymnasium to handle tournament crowds would cost $150,000, but the of trouble the other day when it schools could acquire a working in- s(jSpyed into that mine field of taooos, Santa Claus and, Christmas. Briefly, as The News' confessed later, it "poked a little innocent fun at a mythical department store Santa." who professed to regard most children as unmitigated monsters and who thought of himself as something of an old fraud. "Well, sir, the sky fell in. Habitually gentle ole ladies cried a pox on The News. Men of substance flailed the December air with walk- iJ?$ sticks. One part time, semi pro Santa, speaking for the profession, defended kiddies in general and assailed editors in particular, all in a vehement "dear-sir-you- cad" letter. We could and should have warn- e.d The News to lay off. Even the faintest allusion to the Santa Claus myth is as risky and as profitless as intervening in a dog fight. We found that out some years ago «er writing an editorial about the terest in even larger floor facilities by going,. along with a $ U,030r.>WjUi- terization program on the Coliseum —benefitting the stock show as well as the schools, for the stock show would then have a closed building in which to prevent winter attractions of its own. After prolonged discussion by the council on the bond issue question, however, President Allen suddenly asked for a 5-minute recess so 'the stock show group could confer by remarkable dispensations of the ,Byrd machine as to state patronage, captioning the piece, "Yes Santa Claus, There Is a Virginia.' We were accused immediately o: itself. On their return to the meeting the stock group asked the council if it would be willing to continue the city's endorsement should the stockmen be able to place the $26,000 debt out of town—eliminating the necessity of a bond issue and delaying for the time being any discussion of the Coliseum winterization program. This seemed to meet agreement from the council and at this point the livestock and schools groups left the meeting. It was indicated, however, that the schools and others would definitely return to the city with a proposition to winterize the Coli- Testimony Is Heard in Suit \ Against County Oral testimony of some 21 witnesses were heard yesterday in Hempstead Chancery Court in a suit by J. O. Luck and Tom Duckett of Hope, seeking to enjoin County Judge U. G.. Garrett from using Hempstead County road equipment on alleged jobs for private indi« viduals or firms. Presiding over the Court was Judge Paul X. Williams of.Boone- ville. Both Chancellors Pilkinton and Howard disqualified themselves in the case. Attorneys for Luck and Ducketl, Denman and Denman of Prescott, were given until January 15, 1955 to file briefs in the case and attorneys for the County, Grain, Weisenberger and Nunn, have 15 additional days in which to file an answer. In testimony yesterday the plaintiffs sought to show that work done by the Judge with county'equip- ment for individuals has .in' the past and will in the future cause them irreparable injury and damage as a private, concern in the same type of work.' They contended that county equipment should be used.ohly,,fpr/the,s.plerand exclusive* 'li'se 'of ;i ' the county. •;: ; " The defendants sought to show that use of county equipment for hire on casual private jobs is a long-established custom and that fees from outside work enables the county to give the taxpayers better roads. They also contended that use of this equipment enables farmers and others to have work done for which heavy equipment has been unavailable from any other source and that if the county is prohibited from earnings from the outside with its equipment the county road program will be seriously crippled. No decision in the case can be expected before February at the earliest.

The hearing had been scheduled for 2 p . m. today in Municipal Court here. Judge Jack Cox said that is was postponed to allow of- icers to complete an' investigation of a report that WilHngham was seen at nearby Forrest City on the morning that the pretty Brinkley mother was attacked. Judge Cox said the hearing will be held in his court tomorrow afternoon. Willingham 19-year-old transient from Florence Ala. is charged with first dagree murder.

Ships With 39 Men Aboard Feared Lost By NATE POLOWETZKY LONDON — M Two ships with 39 men aboard were feared lost today as hurricanes lashed the Nortn Sea and the English Chanel. The gale-driven seas breached dikes in the Netherlands and West Germany but so far there was no repetition of last 'year's disastrous floods. Four breaks in the seawalls were reported from Tsxel Island just off the northwest Dutch .coast. Mindful of the February 1953 floods in which almost 1,400 lives were lost in the Netherlands workers rushed to bolster the crumbling dike. Officials began the evacuation of persona cattle and supplies from part of the islaod. Breaks in dikes at Pernis, near Rotterdam and at Wilhelmshaven in Germany also were reported but these were not considered serious. The dikes in the Duthprov- ince of Zeeland -worst hit area in 1953, were holding despite the abnormal tide. By H. . QUIGG. CLEVELAND O (UP) What took the Dr Samuel H.

' Gov. Hugh White, one of the amendment's s tro ngest backers, said he expected 5 to call today for a special legislative session Jan. 11 to provide funds fpr bringing separate Negro schools up to the level of white schools. State officials believe Negroes would rather have good segregated schools than no schools at all. Returns from 1,140 of the state's 1,825 precincts showed 81,940 votes for the amendment and 36,008 against it. The turnout was light. Gov. White said public schools would be abolished only as a last resort. The amendment would permit the Legislature to turn school facilities over to private groups and to subsidise private schools, Alert Off icers CaptureBadly Wanted Man Npbody Can Stop a Person Fbm Thinking/Says Most Successful U.S, Gadgeteer Py HAU NEW YORK (ffi There's big money .in soiiall gadgets today.
