McFADDIN, Hope attorney, brought out a striking and . useful thought in his speech Wednesday night at Prairie Grove when he urged the United Daughters of the Confederacy to make sure that the history textbooks on the Civil war used in Southern schools do justice to the South. i Referring to nn 8lh grade text written by H man from St. Louis, Mo.. Mr. McFaddin .said: It is n history written from a viewpoint of the North. 1 submit thnt that book is not a proper book to be studied by Southern boys nnd girls.

R. Dcrrossctt about 45, of Okean, Randolph county, was injured perhaps fatally Wednesday nighl when struck by an automobile two miles west of here on Highway 70. .The automobile was driven by H. K. Thotcher of Roland, Pulaski county, with the Soil Erosion Service at Forrest City. Inntchcr told officers that the couple stepped in front of his car from behind another machine that was going in I he opposite direction. Thatcher said he ran off the highway in nn effort to avoid ^striking them.

"" Coroner Fred E. Berry and Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Joe Melton, both oi' Lonoke, ."investigated and said Thatcher was not to blame for the accident. Thatcher told officers that he was traveling about 30 miles- an hour. The accident occurred on a curve near a filling station. The windshield and headlights of Thatcher's car were broken by the impact.

All the necessary elements arc there. Southerners should not rest content until justice has been done on the pages of Northern schoolbooks as well us here at home. The story is not so far wrong, even today—for time has n habit of wringing truth out of prejudice and rumor. XXX Here is my own recollection of high school history of the Civil war a.s taught in eastern Pennsylvania about 1913: Abraham Lincoln for the North, nnd Robert. E. Lee, for the South, stood practically alone as Ihe two great figures. A schoolboy conceived a natural dislike for U. .S. Grant, He was a weak and indolent man before the war; he won simply because his side furnished more men and guns; he made a bad president—and when he retired from the presidency to engage in banking he promptly involved himself in a terrible scandal. . Lcc. had risen • high iti-tho army— but threw his eareor-awny wherFdufy called him to the defense of his native state. He was a brave and glamorous figure all through the war—a wise and kindly teacher in the after years. History, after all, is more a chronicle of mcn than of events. And in the men that it cent into the Civil war the South sooner or later must emerge superior on the pages of history. History is a chronicle of mcn. And mcn, after nil, feel as the historian Herodotus felt: No man is so foolish a.s to de- tire war more than peace, for, in peace, sons bury their fathers, but, in war, fathers bury their sons.

Clary, of Warren, urged that Crosnoe. be granted an indefinite furlough because two others :onvicted with him, Jesse Hutson and Chris Wheaton, the latter a negro, already have been freed from prison. ' Immunity by Gentry Clary also said that when Crosnoe confessed to firing the gin he had been promised immunity by State Insurance Commissioner U. A. Gentry. A letter from Gentry to Sheriff T. B. Beard of Bradley county-was introduced at the hearing in which Gentry declared, "If these boys are sent to prison on the basis of confessions induced by me I shall be greatly humiliated." Verne McMillan, of the Arkansas Underwriters association, said that his 10:20 to 12 a. m. organization protested clemency because he claimed Crosnoc admits he 2 to 5 p. m. I burned a great deal of property over Agents, called Crosnoe a "confessed professional arsonist," and said the fires he has confessed setting have placed a burden on the people of Hope and the entire state. Jury' Petition Attorney Clary presented a petition signed by eight jurors who tried Crosnoe, former Prosecutor George H. Holmes, who prosecuted him, and a number of Bradley county officials, asking that a furlough be granted. Clary said Crosnoe had been made the "goat" in the case and that the real principal had been freed by "a decision of the Arkansas Supreme Court which reversed his conviction." Thursday's hearing was before Tom Healy, secretary to Governor Futrell. The facts presented will be laid before the chief executive later for his action. .Crosnoe entered the state penitentiary last May 27. Hutson and Wheaton were given three years in the arson case while Crosnoe received six.

The Hope atlorney, decorated by the U. D. C. with the "Southern Cross" at a special service Wednesday night, made his suggestion in a speech delivered before the annual convention of the patriotic society. Wednesday night's program climaxed a day that saw the Daughters dedicate a building at Memorial Park, site of a Civil War battle.

As the name implies, this )is V special city-wide sales event in which fall merchandise is being featured at unusually low prices. This is a rather unusual time to feature a sales event, but the fall selling season has been extremely backward due to prolonged summer heat. The merchants believes, that by cooperating in this one big event, they can stimulate buying to its normol tempo.
