' The Star owes Congressman Oren Harris an apology for pro- mature release yesterday of his statement to the people of the Fourth Arkansas district. Yestcrduy's was supposed held from publication until Friday luly 11, said that the congressman had arrived home from Washington. As a matter of fact, Mr. Harris is en route from the capital and will be in the district this Thursday — our announcement was a trifle early, indeed. The error is mine personally. Managing Editor Paul H.

When a newspaper jumps a re lease date on a wire story — AP, UP, or INS — it costs somebody some money. I never have been found guilty on this score, but it's fascinating to read where the New York Times or some other journalistic mogul was assessed $1,000 by the Associated Press for pre- malure release of some advance matter.

MacArthur's Speech High Note for GOP By WARREN ROGERS JR. we're, explaining and apologizing before Oren Harris gets out of. his automobile at El Dorado Post Office building, where he'll maintain an office during his stay in the home district. I am reminded of the wry story, with which the late Ncill C. Marsh used to entertain us newspaper folk back in the oil boom days at El Dorado. The afternoon paper at El Dorado, the Evening Times, derived its name from an old weekly published by George Washington Mason, who finally suspended it and sold the name to New^-Timcs- Publishing-"Su: ' At torney Marsh's story explains 'why the Weekly Times died. Said Marsh: "Old George Washington Mason used to make so many errors in the Weekly Times that he had to keep on publishing it because it always took another issue to correct the errors he made the week before. "Now George Washington Mason was a big Baptist, and one day in order to attend a church convention in another part of the country he hired a tramp printer to get out the Times in his absence. Well, when Mason got home he found the tramp printer hadn't made a single mistake in the edition the week he was gone — and so, there being nothing to correct, he had nothing to publish . . . and he killed the paper." Marsh had a razor wit. Later he ran for congress. But I don't recall voting for him. He lost the election — but I've never forgotten his story. $2,898,800,000 for the atomic projects, $6,031,947,750 for foreign aid, and $2,140,000,000 for globe-circling military construction projects. When the Senate and House- first deadlocked over the measure arguing into the early hours Sunday morning, the bill provided only $1,450,000,000 in atomic funds. This was later boosted to two billions by the house as a compromise move but administration leaders in the Senate insisted on more. The original bill also contained a rider that many — including the President — interpreted as barring the Atomic Energy - Commission from starting any projects it didn'l have the money-Id complete. As finally passed, the spending curb was retained in the bill. Bu opponents of the rider said its effect was offset by the additiona $898,000,000' voted yesterday for the atomic commission. AEC Chairman Gordon Dean agreed. Also resolved was a secondary dispute over a $584,061,600 rivers and harbors and flood control bill CHICAGO I/I')—Old soldier Uoni; li.s MncArthur, amid a cannonade of applause, blistered the Homo- crals as a blundering "war party" and rallied yelling Republicans lust night to a "crusade" to rout thorn from office.

Maybank (D-SC) and Sen. Olin Johnston (D-SC) had threatened to filibuster against it be,cause the House had erased four million dollars the Senate had approved for the Hartwell dam on the Savannah .River between South Carolina and Georgia. They dropped their .fight, how ever, after the supplemental ap propriation bill was amended to request the AEC to investigate the importance of the dam to the giant Savannah River atomic plant and submit a report to the next session ot Congress. Maybank said the hydrogen bomb plant on the Savannah River, still under-construction, would require one half million gallons of water a minute and the Ha-ftwell dam would have to be built because "we can't take a chance of a drought on the Savannah River." Senate leaders -pledged they would try to get funds for the dam early in the next session of Congress.
