26,1986 ttom STAR, H0t% ARKANSAS E* *•< / ;"j!" * Hoover and Borah May Split G. 0. "Borah's Independence a Constant Thorn in Republican Party's Side By BYHON PRICE Chief Of Bureau, The Associated Press, Washington' With, both Mr. Hoover and Mr. Borah talking more nnd more like presidential candidates, the Republican party obviously is headed toward n conflict of serious proportions. No one can tell how far it will continue along that pathwny. Often hi the past the party has been able to compromise perilous internal differences, and achieve finally a fairly united front. Volunteer peacemakers, recognizing the present danger, are seeking n solution. Perhaps they will find one. The only possible way to look at politics intelligently, however, is to consider the facts as they exist at the moment, not on the basis of hypothetical situations which may or may not develop In the future. The facts arc quite plain. Mr. Hoover, whether he runs or not, is determined the party shall not come under the control of that school ; of thought which is symbolized by Mr. Borah. Whether he runs or not, Mr. Borah Is determined that the party leadership of which Mr. Hoover is so conspicuous a part shall be supplnnl- lierc is a clear-cut issue, entirely aside from any question of possible candidates. It is the sort of issue, •. furthermore, which has to do with •'fundamentals, and is difficult to compromise. Exomulc Of Issues '/ There is no mystery why compromise would be most distasteful to Mr. .Hoover and the party leaders with \vhom he has been associated. From an organization viewpoint Mr. Borah's independence of the constituted Republican leadership has been a Source of irritation and exasperation ;for years. On the side of issues (to take a single fcxample), Mr. Hoover looks on ortho- ;clox money as an absolutely indispensable requisite to sound government, .While Mr. Borah favors "reflection." How can a basic issue such as that be , compromised? Furthermore, Mr. Hoover naturally hopes for some measure of vindication, and he knows that is not any pftft of the plans of the western In- dependenU, On his side, too, Mr. Borah has his reasons. He has said, in effect, that only by purging Itself of the old leadership can the party accomplish iu destiny. More significant still Is the fact that Mr. Borah does not believe in compromising. Ho has said on many occasions that no groat issue ever was settled by compromise. His rugged personal Independence argues more strongly than any other factor against the likelihood of such a solution. Other Reasons Possible There is a widespread belief that if either Mo. Hoover or Mr, Borah eventually is drawn into an active presidential candidacy, it will be against his belter judgment. It is hardly possible that either minimizes the obstacles which stand between him and the nomination. Against each there exists within the party a considerable body of bitterly adverse opinion which might foment tin open break in the national convention. Considering this, it Is entirely credible that both Mr. Hoover and Mr. Borah have set out on their present activities without thought of becoming candidates — Mr. Hoover seeking primarily to have a major part'in the selection of some other candidate, Mr. Borah determined that no such thing shall happen. But con either hope to gather behind him the needed strength, unless he docs become a candidate And whether or not they run. is there any peacemaker sufficiently strong to prevent such a collision as will rock the parly to its foundation? I For no one who knows politics speaks lightly of the potential power of cither Mr. Hoover or Mr. Borah under the existing circumstances.

There are plenty of chestnuts grown in France, but only those from Naples pass through the process of manufacture without falling 16 pieces. With no alternative supply in sight, makers of the famous "marrons glaccs" are refusing to take orders for Christmas delivery. Cedar rust is n par/.site of the cedars, but, due to its peculiar life cycle, il will die out unless there are trees of the apple family nearby, where its spores can alight and develop enough each alternate year.

Tho 40,000 residents of Dunfermlinc have had no opportunity to forget the name of Carnegie. Every citizen has benefited in some way from Carnegie money. Every other street reveals some gift which the famous millionaire made to his beloved birthplace. Cottage SOU Stands Dunfermline today boasts of swimming pools, libraries, gymnasiums, technical schools. It has the most famous public park in Scotland. All are gifts of the man who went from humble poverty to great wealth. The cottage where Carnegie was born still stands, a squat gray stone affair, with dormer windows jutting out from a quaint crd-tlled roof. The attic room where he slept as a child is in virtually its original condition. Visitors from all parts of the world have inspected the room, with its low, sloping ceiling, and the old-fashioned bed built into a recess in the wall. Some of the original furniture, sober in appearance and solid, remains. Aiuiual Picnic held One of the first sights to attract Carnegie as a boy was the Dunfermline Abbey, founded in the Eleventh j century by Maicom Canmorc, and the ! ' burial place of Robert the Bruce, whose name is emblazoned on the tower. The curfew bell which tolled— and it still docs—was the signal, at eight o'clock, for young Carnegie to Bo to bed. Close by the Abbey was Pittcn- crieff Glen, a large estate which was barred to Carnegie and his companions, no matter how much they wanted to wander through the dark ; wooded glen. Later, as a multi-mil- j Jionairc, Carnegie bought the estate. It is now a park where.thousands of school children are entertained yearly at a picnic which costs-$5,000. i In direct contrast to the evidences of Carnegie's boyhood is the modern "Treasure House," adjoining his early home. Rulers, statesmen, and corporate bodies throughout the world I have contributed to the contents of the house. Gold and silver caskets from • cities and towns, resplendent robes from the universities of Europe and America, and brilliantly illuminated scrolls, are assembled in tribute to the one-time bobbin boy. Letter From Meucllk Among the records of appreciation is a parchment in strange characters; a letter from the late King of Kings, Menelik Second of Ethiopia. It reads as follows: "He who has conquered the Lion of the *Tribe of Judah, MeneUfc^, King of Kings, Emperor of Ethiopia, , "I'o Mr. Andrew Carnegie: t "Peace be with you. "Mr. Ellis has kindly told me of your nobleness and generosity to all j people, and of your gift to the Afri- ' can Americans of the United States and your aid to them in gaining a ' higher sphere of civilization, knowledge, virtue and morality, and educating them on higher planes, of and for which I am grately interested in and thankful, and may God give you power and strength to fulfill all your good wishes.

Gable's senior by 11 years, according to their application for a marriage license in 1931, the second Mrs. Gable ' occupied with aloofness and dignity for these four years and difficult position of wife to the screen's—most idolix.ed male. More so than is usually the case. Mrs. Gable remained in the background of her husband's career,' although frequently appearing wilh him at moviuland functions. I Almost Unnoticed ' The same year that Gable was divorced from his first wife, Josephine Dillon, now a teacher of dramatics in Hollywood, he married Ria Langham, the mother of two children by a previous marriage. The ceremony, in Santa Ana, Calif., attracted little attention, for Gable then was only another actor who had done a part or two in the talkies, and was just beginning to make the pictures that were to catapult him into virtual overnight prominence. The rewards—although Gable considered them the penalties—of movie fame were not long in coming. A visit to New York convinced him that hunting in the mountains hereabouts would lac wifor and ploasanter, what with mobs of girls caring at him for autographs and souvenirs wherever he went, besieging him at his hotel, and making his progress through the streets, a struggle. dossiers There First Hollywood gossip long .since predict- ! ed the Gable marriage would not last, and ucwipers were surprised that it continued in spite of Iheir predictions. Gable, the "man's man" type of actor, answered I IT- rumors by. vetoing all ' suggested interviews about his mar- i riagf, while Mrs. Gable, for her part, .stressed her background role and rarely talked on the subject which most piqued the interest of the movie I magazines. j Mrs. Gable frequently accompanied! her husband on the hunting trips j which constituted his favorite vaca-i Barley In Arctic , MOSCOW —(/P)- Hardy Ethiopian barley is now grown successfully in the far north.
