Escaped Gl WASHINGTON (#1—The parents of John Hvasta, an ex-GI who reportedly escaped from a red prison in Czechoslovakia, have a promise from the State Department that it will take "definite action" to try to get more information about their son. Mr. and Mrs. Michael Hvasta and another son, Steve, 22, came jaere from Hillside, N. J., yester- 'day to ask State Department aid. The Czech government reported last Monday that John Hvasta escaped from a Communist prison near Bratislava Jan. 2. At the time he was serving a 10-year sentence on conviction of charges—denounced by this government as baseless—that he was an American spy. that in case a child has lo be transferred from the school he attended last year lhat he will soon adjust himself to his new friends and surroundings. Dividing lines are as follows: Paisley School 1st Ihrough Glh grades —There will be one division of each grade in Paisley School. All pupils from the firsl lo Ihe sixlh grades, inclusive, residing norlh of Ihe Miss ouri Pacific Railroad and wcsl of Ihe Frisco Railroad will allend Paisley Schooli All transporled pupils on the Washinglon Highway and Ihe proving ground area will atlend Paisley. There will probab ly be a shift of other Iransported studenls to Ihis school. Oglesby School Isl Ihrough Ihe 6lh grades: There will be one division of each grade at Oglesby. All pupils from Ihe first through Ihe sixlh grades residing north of Ihe Missouri Pacific railroad and easl of Ihe Frisco Railroad will allend the Oglesby school. All Iransported sludenls on Old Highway 67 norlh toward Emmel and Ihe Providence area will also allend Oglesby grade school, and sludenls riding Bus No. 2.

President when he was in Arkansas lately, celebrating the completion of two multi-million dollar dam projects and reminding the South of her "deep obligations to the Democratic Party." There isn't any question about the fact that both the President and his secretary ot the treasury, John Snyder, would be pleased pink to have McMath in the Stevenson cabinet. But the grandson of Grover Cleveland's Vice-President has been manifesting a growing amount of independence 'of late, and does not relish having his cabinet selections made for him in advance. The McMath story came out of the hat of a well known Washington correspondent and» publisher who privately admitteS later that he merely put two and two together and made a secretary of agriculture. A much likelier Stevenson appointment, in thai opinion of those close to the .situation, would be Sen. J. William Fulbright as attorney general. Fulbright is of the Stevenson type, an intellectual, liberal but moderate and a pretty good investigator on his own, as some people in the RFC and the White House found out. Fulbright has the advantage, too, of knowing his way around in the Department of Justice, Stevenson knows well enough the part the Arkansas senators, includ ing FuLbrigh.t, . and the Arkansas delegation had in his nomination. He is not apt to forget about it. Union Compress Receiyes First Bale of Cotton Union Compress Co, hero has received Its first bnlo of cotton from tho 1052 crop, H. O.

JMen 20 and older are now being used to fill draft calls, but an of ficial said the need for more men— as indicated by yesterday's call for 47,000 draftees in October — may mean dipping into the lower bracket. The October call was an increase of 17,000 over the September call, and there are indications quotas the last two months of 1952 may be as high if not higher.

The Boys' Senate of Ihe Boys' Gallon, sponsored by Ihe American iCgion, composed of Iwo boy "senators" from each state, look only one day for hearings and one day for hearings and one day lo pass Iwo pieces of "legislation" lhal would slall the U. S. Senate for hat many months. One was a bill creating an Air Force Academy lo ank with West Point and Annapolis, and the other giving the House of Representatives equal power and right wllh Ihe Senale in Ihe ralificalion of treaties. The Iwo "senators" representing Lhe Boys' Slalc of Arkansas were Eugene B.'Henderson, 18. Fayelte- ville, and David Railey, 18, Ft. Smith. Railey was Boys' Slale governor of Arkansas for 1952. Nol lo be ouldone by Ihe boys, the girls followed with their place on Ihe Washinglon scene. The Girls' Nalion had as their represenla- lives from Arkansas, Joy Hagood Cox, Dumas, and Judith Elinor Smith, Magnolis, both officers of the Arkansas Girls' State. Politics Can Be Fun The boys and girls evidenlly came up lo Washinglon lo show how much fun there can be in politics. Besides passing all their "must legislation" with a snap and vigor thai might well be the envy of Rayburn and Barkley and Iheir House and Senate organizations, the two "Nations" held nominating conventions and elections, visited every shrine in and around Ihe national capital, conferred with the joint chiefs of staff, visited with top Justice and State Deparlment officials, and "met the press" at luncheons in their honor at the National P.ress Club. And to climax their model political demonstration, they were received —and fed— at Ihe While House, where everything was "just lovely" without a single "palron- ege" club on the horizon. Easier Said Than Done ; Extreme leftists and "civil right- j ers" have already opened a, determined drive here to "srnoke out," as they say, Sen. John J. Sparkman of Alabama, on the civil rights issue. Led by the negro congressman from Harlem, Rep. Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., and Waller White, secretary of the NAACP, they plan to keep on prodding the Democratic vice-presidential candidate until they get "satisfaction." So far Sparkman has contended himself with the declaration that be "will work wholeheartedly tor the Democratic program" and the sUtemenJ, "I W%| inlunately By The Associated Press An Aufiust heat wave bnked most of Textis nnd parts of thu Southwest todny while relatively cool wcnthor spread across tho central portion of the nation.

He added that he would not dictate to his followers but that "I am casting my vote for Francis Cherry."
