So far also an the women and men who share tho days with us are concerned! To reach the middle years in sadness and with a defeated spirit... that must bo tragedy stark and terrible. The wasted days cannot be recalled. The hurts of soul cannot bo erased entirely, The lost years will never be found again. SMI W6 atop today and take stock? Whero do wo find aurselvas; on the Way up or on the wax down? Who are the friends with whom we have shared our very persons? What good thing ha^e we achieved in the thirty or forty or fifty years which wore entrusted to us? What good* have we gathered? How much would we be missed by our family and friends . .*. by the community if we should bo removed from their .fellowship? THR Good News of our religion does not leave us in despair, for tho great God is Saviour And Friend and Helper and Healer. Today His voice is still calling to every discouraged and to every failing soul. Tho manifold mercies of Heaven are writable, if a man will turn in penitence and in good purpose. God is both Creator and Re-Creator; He offers us a new birth of heart and so.ul. The flret of grace can purify and redeem. Tno love ol God is an ocean divine, in which we may wash and be made c/ean. Why not seek out the church and the minister who is the herald of the Gospel of forgiving grace? A man can be born again. Maybe you, like this man, need just one more chance?

CndlA* M«f«h 11, ma PRICE 5<i New Queen Is Crowned at Annual Hempstead County Watermelon Festival i I have it direct from one of the Icmpstead county candidates that »hen he asked an elderly Negro; pr his vote the latter replied, j Joss, I aint a-goin' to be here— I'll sign one of those absent-' itindcd ballots." i j Even if you completely disregard overnor Sid McMath's break with I'adition in using his executive j uthority to bid for a third term, his obvious relish in the fact fiat he has the' endorsement of president Harry S. Truman, there still a great and powerful reason, |hy the working people of Arkan- Jjs will vote against him on Tues- Jay, August 12. When McMath pumped up the ublic school budgets and adverted to the world that Arkansas ducation was in a new era, he |idn't tell the people, cither at ome or abroad, that they were •pending tax money which they |idn't have. r did he tell them what he tad in mind as a means of raising he necessary tax money. The crisis came in 1950 when he state, its current funds exhaus- ed, notified the local districts it vas turning the schools back to |hcm, to reduce their budgets and crease local assessments and Jaxcs and carry' on as best they could. It was an ignominous end |or the McMath administration And a bitter end for the public. Because in the spring of 1951 Gov- jrnor McMath was compelled by circumstances to disclose his tax plan. The administration strove ^desperately to put through the (regular session of the legislature [a bill to increase the state sales I tax from 2 to 3 per cent. And when the bill failed the legislature was brought back in special session for a second attempt at passage. This. I too, failed. The Star pushed editorially for lactment of the original Hall i per \cerjt _salej. w tax in 18»H,i-~..U was approved in March 1933 — I because the nation was then only ] emerging from the depths of a depression, real estate and other tangible wealth was almost without value, and a tax on sales seemed our only • source for immediati cash with which to keep the schools going. But the sales tax is a tax most grievous to the working classes, 'o attempt to mark up the tax on Tood and clothing in a prosperous year like 1951 was a monumental double-cross against every wage earner in Arkansas. Not only that, but McMath dis closed clearly the lack of planning and sound management behind his highly-publicized school program. In a prosperous year like 1951 he plunged the schools mto depression-type bankruptcy and was compelled to ask the legisla iture for a depression-type relief— an increase in the sales tax. No wage - earner in Arkansas should forget this when he goes to the polls Tuesday. It's one of the reasons I am going to vote for Francis Cherry— a new man with a new program. McMafh Lashes at Interests' Cherry Denies Bringing Up Personal Angl Wage Board Favors Short Work Week WASHINGTON iffl — Labor contracts calling for a shorter work week with no loss in pay had the general approval today of the Wage Stabilization Board. The agency, which has a num jer of petitions seeking this provision, told its 14 regional boards yesterday to go ahead and approve them if certain conditions are met. These provisions include: 1. Evidence that the scheduled work week jibes with practice within the industry, area or comparable industry. 2. A statement that the actual number of hours.to be worked fits the shorter week, although, .s.orne reductions might have to be gradual. 3. A list of anticipated changes inperations, .such as hiring or re-assignment of employes. 4. A recording to show the pay increase, resulting from a shorter week with no wage cut, was charged against wage reulations six and eight. These allow, a 10 per cent pay raise over i January, 1950, plus cost of living increases. 5. An examination of the requested pay rates upon other industries and areas. / Miss Barbara Marie Pankey of Emm el was crowned Queen of the 1952 Watermelon Festival Wednesday in Fair Park Coliseum.

Gen. William K. Harrison, chief United " Nations delegate, well may im- "mediately call another respite. He warned the Reds at the last truce meeting that he will not put up with a rehash of Communist propaganda charges. And that is just what the Chinese and North Korean Reds are grinding out in broadcasts from their capitals. Peiping radio led off the latest blast by claiming that America warplanes flew across the Yalu L River into Manchuria 79 times dur- riug the first week of August. It charged a total of 398 sorties dur ing the week and said one American plane dropped 21 bombs on a Manchurian town, seriously injuring two persons. United Nations spokesmen made no comment on the propaganda charge other than, to say Allied pilots have standing orders not to operate beyond tfae Yalu river border. Thousands Pay Tribute to Eva BUENOS AIRES, Argon tina (UP) —The body of Mrs. Eva PC ron was carried slowly through th streets of Buenos Aires where hundreds of thousands of silent Argentines today to the building of Congress in an impressive civil and military ceremony. At 10:30 a.m. (9:30 a.m. edt), her body was carried from the labor ministry where it has lain in state since her death two weeks ago, -and placed on an artillery caisson. Three columns of workers pulled the caisson slowly along the mile- long route to the congressional building where it will lie in state until funeral services tomorrow. All business, industrial and social activitiy came to a standstill with the beginning of the 42-hour mourning period for Argentina's first lady. The period began at 6- a.m. (5 a.m. edt) and will last ur.til 12:01 a.m. Monday. The solemn ceremony today is usually reserved for a president who has died in office. High point of the Hempstead County Watermelon Festival each year is the contest selecting the Watermelon Queen, sponsored, planned and directed by the Hope Business and Professional Womens Club. This "year was no exception one oE the most colorful pontests was held Wednesday August 6th at the Hope Fair Park. Girls 16 to 21 years of age from all over the -county compete cac^i year for the honor-.pt,. beingi queen. Much planning dnd'hard work goes into a successful event and one that is a credit to the program of Festival activities. The big day got underway with a parade downtown, ending at the festival grounds; The Queen's float in watermelon colors and motif, on which the 1951 queen, Mrs. Charles Overstreet (Kelly Marlar) rode, with the 12 beautiful aspirants seated on the grass covered floor of the float amid famous Hempstead County watermelons, was one of the most attractive floats in the parade. At the parade^s end, the 13 beauties were met -by the hostess and transportation committee, Mary Lou Moore,' Mrs. Kate Olsen and Mary Adelle Waddle, who escorted them to Hotel Barlow for a luncheon at which they were the honor guests, with tyliss Beryl Henry, club hostess and B&PW members attending. Mrs. George Hosmer turned her home over to the contestants for resting and dressing purposes. At 6:30 p.m. the elimination contest began in the Livestock Coliseum on a stage, decorated by Mrs. Hosmer in the watermelon theme, before a hugh crowd attending the Festival.
