He was one of the fairly limited number of senators who are both able and willing to sit with a reporter through an hour of chata and discussion of tough issues with many angles. He was not a "natural authority" on a single issue that we can recall, yet he had a knack of assembling a mass of sound information which he was Willing to let reporters have if they asked for it. He had spent most of his life as a judge before coming to the senate and his knowledge of the law was ARKANSAS LIVESTOCK SHOW EXPOSITION GROUNDS AIORTH LITTLE.... *I2,5OO. forABEANSAS ^GENERAL ADMISSION PRESENT Revue at the Livestock Show CASH PREIUMS A BRILLIANT STAGE SMASH HIT GENERAL ADMISSION 50 4 GRANDSTAND 75*'SOXSEATS*I.OO * T.ERoberrion.Preienls * $ ECO WO ANNUAL Smith Rogers & Eddy, eccentric dancers, will make their appearance in the st.-igc revue, "Going Places," a ?50,OOI) musical cxtravnpnnzn to be presented this week at the Arkansas Live stock show in North Little Rock.

With it there will be a companion9 move to destroy the German-American Bund as well.

Beware of something - for - nothing offers. BEASLEY'S, Texarkana, Ark. HARVEY ODOM Local Representative much respected not only by the press but by fellow senators. He was not a "hard working" legislator who spent dismal hours in his office digging out tax data. Nevertheless he probably read from day to day far more than the average senator, and on subjects of special interest to him he read and studied as much as any. In a Fight The supreme court fight interested him deeply, and throughout that period he was a' source of abundant help to Senator Joe Robinson, majority leader, whose death came as a dramatic climax to the historic conflict two years .ago. Senator Logan was one of the lead-off men for the administration group trying to win authority for appointment of young and fresh men to the supreme court. He endured probably the toughest grilling of any who spoke. We happen to talk to him briefly before he went on the floor for that speech and he said then that he knew what he was coming up against. He hoped only that he would permitted to talk long enough without interruption to give .some semblance of copherence to his speech. He had prepared it carefully. Nothing like that happened. When he arose he drew a barrage of questions which continued without a break until he finished, three hours later. A glance at the Congressional Record shows that rarely was he permitted to finish more than three or four sentences at a time until some senator arose to question or argue. Patiently he answered reams of questions that drew him down side-alley, and as patiently he returner! to his own theme after each skrimish. Senators agree that it was one of the hardest questionings a senator has endured. Had Senator Robinson enrlured such ;< te.st his fiery temper might have risen to such a pitch i as to cause his death long before it came. Prophecy A strange little story now is available in connection with Logan's death that could not be told before. A day or so aficr Robinson's death, we happened to be talking with Senator Copeland of New York, the senate's physician-member in ;i long time. He lecalled then what reporters had noted at the time that he had two times gone over to Robinson's side to caution him against .such tempestous speech as was his habit. He knew Robinson's condition. "Who will be next to go'.'" we ask- c-d him. It so happened that Logan, in a speech .some- time before, had quoted that little bogey-man verse beginning: "Last night I saw upon the stair "A little man who wasn't there.' By way of answer, Copeland ix- puated that verse as a means of referring to Logan. He added: "When u man in his later years begins lo thin out about the back of the nock, look out." Logan had begun to "thin out' about the- nock. Yet he was not the next (o go. Senator Copeland himself. -< ((:'.': weeks later, died suddenly in his apartment here. Thai was " two gram is aimed at the Communist party, if for no other reason than that its activities and influence,have been greater. Congressman Martin Dies, chairman of the committee, has been puttinp together an amazingly detailed picture of Communist work in the United States. With all of this as a background— and it makes a far 'more factual and effective background than anything the committee has dug up in previous years—legislation will be introduced in congress early in January which, if passed, would either destroy the party in the United States or reduce it to impotence. Would Bare IMamcs of-Members In substance, according to present plans, this legislation would cornt*! any organization nffili*ltd *lth liny international organization to file pri- odical reports with the secretary Of state, giving the true names of nil of its members and officers' and presenting a complete statement of its fihan CC3. With such a law on the books, nml with the publicity which would result from it, it is believed that the party would be pretty thoroughly crippled. Present indications arc that such a law could be got through the House of Representatives without 'much trouble It would have more difficulty in the senate. | For one thing, the signing of the Russian-German treaty .has caused a great change of feeling. For another thing, the recent expose of "front organizations" dominated by Communists has not done the New Deal any good, either, and the chances are that the administration will not be nearly ns anxious to block I anti-Communist legislation as it would have been a year or so ago. The capital is waiting with some uneasiness to know just what Chairman Dies' 'much talkcd-of list of "Communists in government" amounts to It is doubled that he will be able to show that anything like the 2800 government employes claimed to be or that list are actually members of the party. Communist sources insist tha 1 the party's total membership in the entire Washington-Baltimore area does not exceed 1000. But Dies Does Have a List That Dies does have a tolerably accurate list of govcrn'mcnt employes who have been active in various Communist-led "front" organizations is certain. In addition, he has a list of senators and congressmen who have been receiving the Daily Worker, official party newspaper. The only trouble -with such lists is that by no means all of the front-organization people are Communists, and that the Daily Worker recipients include a number of stout anti-Com- nunists who read the paper merely to sec what the party is up to—to say nothing of some who have been receiving the paper without having sub- 'cribed to it and who toss it unopened 'n the wastebasket. For instance a copy of the Daily Worker has been going to Senator Nye regularly. His secretary recognizes t in its wrapper, by now, and drojxs t calmly into the wastebasket without opening it. Another who gets an unsolicited copy regular is Senator Capper; he occasionally reads it to see what the radicals are up to. Still another who gets it is Congressman Jerry Voorhis,_ who is hi'mself a,rnem- r of the Dies committee and who! is about as confirmed a foe of Com- I munism as Congress contains. So,that to publish a list of congressional recipients of the Communist newspaper, with the inference that people on the list were Communist sympathizers, would be to convey a completely rnisleaicing i'mpression.

Straight up the sidelines he went for about 15 yards as his interferers cut down the first three Wesleyan men to break through. Then he cut sharply to the left, stiff-armed a Wesleyan end and reversed his field. At midfield there were only three Wesleyan men in his path. Keith timed himself in back o£ the lone Tech interferer who was still with him. Tlie bloclccr was No. 40.

He hadn't even called her during the week, but she knew Tech opened with Wesleyan on Saturday, and according to the papers—little as she read the sports pages—Coach Bill Slocum had been driving the varsity fiercely, Football had been nothing more than a game to her up until then, but as she walked to the stadium with Marianne, Elaine, and Carol for the opener she suddenly wa.s aware of a new interest. Keith, of course. It was a glorious September afternoon. Not one among the thousands who were streaming across the campus as much as carried a blanket. Carol bought a paper just ucfore they entered the stadium. It was virtually a football edition, with players' pictures plastered all over the front page. And splashed across three columns, largest of all, was Keith Rhodes. It was a full-length action shot with Keith stiff-arming an imaginary opponent. She stole another look after they found their seats. "Some stuff, eh?" served. Joan smiled. "Begins to look, as though Keith is THE varsity." She checked his number in the program. It was 28. It took hrr a little while before she picked him out of the swarm of maroon- jerseycd figures who were scurrying about in pro-game warmup.3. Keith was sending long, spiraling punts downfield. One of his kicks soared 60 yards and a prolonged "oooohh" rolled up from the j down the sidelines for 38 yards, packed .stands. I Joan felt a thrill go through her "He's really wonderful," Man- as he touched the ball down. The onne broke in excitedly. "Wait'll, Tech players swarmed about him, you see, Joan." * * The score at the of the game was 26-0. Early in the third quarter Keith crashed over from the five- yard line on a delayed buck, and in the fourth quarter Quarterback Johnny White passed to Barney Hughes standing all alone in the end zone. * * * TT took the girls at least 20 minutes to get clear of the great crowd leaving the stadium. As they moved slowly, foot by foot, down the long ramp they listened hand. No. 40 cut down two of i to the Sunday morning quarter- the Wesleyan men like a scythe, {backs who were already replaying Carol ob- with a long roll block. Keith broke into the clear and then went down heavily as the last Wesleyan tackier i-pillcd him on the 20 with a desperate lunge. .Io;in found herself on her feet, screaming. Marianne was pounding Carol on the back. They could scarcely make themselves heard above the din. "Yowee, BO yards!" someone above them howled. "Nice goin', Keith!" Thoy quieted down as Tech went into a huddle. "Did you SEE that?" Carol asked breathlessly. "And that No. 40," exclaimed Elaine. "The way he ran interference. Who was that, I wonder." She ran her finger down the list. But Joan had already found it. "Dan Webber," she said. Tech took it over in four plays, Keith scoring standing up on a reverse good for eight yards and the touchdown. TUST before the half ended Keith J scored again. Someone took out the Wesleyan end neatly and Keith breezed wide. He faked the defensive halfback into lunging toward him, sidestepped and went off a sminter -,ml I, If II " i "'' m " !
