By The Herald Staff This Is n true story, a story of courage In the face of odds, as it wa.s lived by a son of Pike County. The facts hove been gathered ond compiled from information furnished by men who have dealt with the principal .figure in the story, Boyd Anderson Tacket, of Glenwood. The details have been checked for accuracy, and it is the opinion of the Herald Editorial Stuff that tho greater part of the story has never been told. Days of htird work, nights of hard study, weeks of hunger, physical discomfort suffered in the pursuance of an ideal, those things will never rfeach the public. And perhaps it is just as well. For Boyd Tackelt docs not want sympathy. All he wants Is a chance, an opportunity to show the stuff lhat is in him. Young Tackett was born in Pike County, and raised within its confines. Early in life he became interested In oratorical work. II was a means of expressing himself, his own individuality. Throughout his ptiblic school career he exercised Ms talents In this line, winning his first modal while In the fourth grade. Other honors came to him later because of his ability to speak, and this ability perhaps was the thing that led him to take up the study of Law us his chosen work, a study at which ho excels as will bo pointed out later in this brief biography. Before ho could begin to realize his ambition there were obstacles lo overcome. Obstacles that would have daunted many men of lessor courage, 'Boyd Tackett hud. many tough breaks. At the ago of cloven, a log fell on him and he was taken to a pair of pants belonging to his brother, Max. Mrs.Cloe Honen, who was then living in Arkadelphia, told him .he could room al her house provided he could find a place to cat. He tried every place In Arkatielphia, but no help was needed. Saturday niuht—six days after leaving Glenwood—he walked into Ihe Co-ed Cafe and told the proprietor he had to have something to eat. George Moore, that was the man's name ,lold him lo go into the kitchen and eat all he wanted, then wash all the dishes he could find. Next day, Boyd had a job with Mr. Moore, who moved the trunk from the campus where it had stayed all week to his own house. Two other people aided young Tackett while he was in Arkadelphia, Charlie Ligon, and his son- in-law Dale Davis. Though he had to work 13 hours a day, Boyd made the honor roll every month he was in Ouachita College. Dr. J. R. Grant, addressing Ihe graduating class of the Glenwood High School that year had many fine things to say about Boyd Tackett. People of Glenwood will recall how he praised the indomi- for 'the Keliher Construction Com- ': table spirit and courage of the I young law student. For his fourth year at college Rnyrl went to the University of Arkansas. He had only $22.00 and was afraid lo tell the school officials just how near broke he was. When he left Glenwood headed H( ? knew they would send him back to school in 1931. Boyd i home with the words, "Come back Boyd Anderson Tackett oratorical ability, to become a statesman. He went through the first year at Arkansas Tech, Rus- sollvillo, on $00 which ho had saved the previous summer while working puny on tho highway from Kirby to Hot Springs. Sixty dollars is not a lol of money but it was a small fortune compared to the n mount ho had at iho beginning of tho second year at Tech. Tackett hud the sum of $3.75, no more and na.lcss.

But Boyd would not remain u cripple. Exactly two yours after leaving tho hospital, ho won tho open mile run in junior high school track, in Ihe Pike County Track und Field Moot for that your.

So he told them he would have some money coming in later, and they allowed him to classify work, and managed to see the end of the school lorm without a deficit. Ho finished Tech in'tho spring i of 1932 being awarded his L. 1. Degree. and register. The next spring (1934) he was awarded his A. B. degree. Through that year, Boyd Tackett batched In an old basement that had onc6 been a garage. Sidney McMath, president of the student body at the University, described the place aptly. "It was," he said, "a dark den that could be entered only through a window. There was only one room and it contained the old oil stove, cot, table, wash basin, and shower." For this hovel, Boyd had to work fi hours a week. Countless Boyd set out to find ;i job.

"I got a handout after dark because I had nothing else to eat and I was starving." Since he has been in tho Uni-(| vorsity, Boyd has averaged 15 hours a day in the study of law. Ho has made among the highest grades ever marked in the records of tho Law School. He was the first student over to make an "A" in the course Roal Property. There has boon only two "A's" made in thai subject since Iho Law School has been in Ihe University. Last October at the first fall convocation at the University of Arkansas,,1 Boyd received his degree of Bachc-'-.| lor of Science in Law from the Law School. This degree being the only one of its kind ever awarded to any Law student from the Law School at the University of Arkansas. Next spring Boyd Tackett will graduate from the Law School, realizing his ambition to make a place for himself in tho scholastic world. He will not be in debt, and he can pridefully say he has not- received a dime from home. ' This year he made arrangements with the University to get 'two other Glenwood boys in school. They are Haskel Hnynes and Bryan | Mehaffy. He has helped other boys to got into school by his own example of standing up and fighting for his ideals, his ambition. Boyd Tackelt frankly admits he wants to get inlo Iho political field. He has worked hard to place himself in a position to serve his I county. And after all, - what there wrong in a young man hav-'l ing an ambition to serve? Especially when he has worked as hard to qualify himself as Boyd Tackett | has done? What this country needs is more young men with a burning desire to stamp out tho political rings that I have choked the very life out of our supposedly democratic form of government, machines that control the destinies of ourselves and children. And Boyd Tackolt is sucl; a young man, ready to help.

The assistant's statement said that Bishop had handed a signed statement to the sheriff of Tulc Coiinty, Utah In which he claimed that he paid $1,500 for the 00-day furlough.

The memorandum says that "the reason for Tuck's (Bishop's) state ment was (that) he was claiming he wa.s not an escapee at the time he was arrested in Utah, but that he was on a 90-day furlough; that he had the furlough and that he paid for it."

That is one of the secrets of a good fescue pasture, Dr. Staten points out. It should not be grazed until a year after it is seeded. It may be possible, however, to take off a hay crop the first spring. The steers grazed the fescue continuously until December 12, gaining at the rate of nearly three fourths of a pound per day. For the next three weeks they were moved to a 3 acre pasture ot win ter oats. From January 11 until February 1 they were on fescue again, where they just about main taincd Ihuir weights.

Total gains on fescue were 23 lounds per acre, or $60 per acre. The 3 aero oat pasture was grazed a total of 44 days during the winter, and yielded 32 pounds or gain per acre.

The animals did not receive any supplemental feed during the entire period. Fescue seeded this September will not be ready for grazing until the fall of 1953. Because of the feed shortage caused by this summer's drought, fawners are being urged to plant winter oats or other small grains this fall, according to Dr. Stalon. A small grain pasture will provide feed during the coming winter. However, farmers wilh sufficient land might also start to establish a permanent fescue pasture to be used in the years to come.

WASHINGTON, (UP)—Vice Pres ident Alben W. Barkley is already drawing a government pension and. will go on receiving it after he retires. But President Truman won't get any pension. The government provides no pensions for retired presidents or vice- presidents. They are about the only members of the executive branch specifically excluded from retirement annuities. Barkley, however, has been draw ing a pension as a retired member of Congress. He has been receiving it in addition to his salary and expense allowance as "veep" ever since he stopped being a senator and was sworn in as vice-president in January, 1849. The 74-year old Kcntuckian is one of 07 former members of congress who are receiving pensions ranging fiom $592 to $6,562 a year and averaging $3,328. The congressional retirement if voluntary.
