An Editodial.. By Norman Kah! u We give thanks today for all the man-made terrors of civilization that have NOT been visited upon us—the thing's we cannot afford, the things we do not want: Bombs bursting.in air, fearful eyes pinned on the sky, spiritless survivors picking among- the ruins of cities for all that is left of loved ones. Hungry, scrawny little bodies, never getting used to starvation, never understanding why such things have to be. •'••i..t*»'»i Men in trenches, nauseated with fear, knowing they will probably die or come out crippled for life. Men at sea waiting for death in the form of torpedoes mines, depth bombs, aerial attack. It doesn't matter how. Death is so much alike in all its disguises. We are grateful because we don't need to carry rations cards when we go to the grocery store and because we don t need to do without the things we're used to havinjr at our tables. We don't need to walk dark streets at night, picking our way dangerously along in blackness, carrying gas masks always over our shoulders. We don't need to leave our factories, offices and fields to put on uniforms and carry guns and learn to shoot men we don't hate. We don't need to stand along the streets and wave our little flags and cheer as soldiers' strut along, when in our hearts we know it is all wrong. We don't need to feel the deadnoss and hopelessness that come when fathers and sons and brothers and husbands exchange their places on earth for little white crosses. We made a mistake once before; we don't want to make it again. We want to be left to do the things we were meant to do—to build, not destroy. We want to enjoy all the blessings we know today and all the others we can earn. We want our children to be glad thhey were born into thi sworld. We want to give them a world that is not charred and stained with needless blood. We are thankful for having been given a chance to rebuild an earth wo nearly tore apart 25 years ago. We're sorry some men again want to destroy "it. We think it's big enough for everyone to live peacefully. We hope, above all, we can repeat these words of Ihanksgiving a. year from now—and every year there- alter.

Invoking the doctrine of res ad- judicata ("something decided") the court ignored the question of "the validity of the vote cast for the act by Paul Gutcnsohn, Fort Smith, who .was appointed to serve in the senate by Governor Bailey. All seven members of the court agreed the act was constitutional, but Associate Justice Frank Smith and E. L. McHaney differed with the other five as the reasoning by which the decision was reached. In a separate opinion Associat Justice Smith sharply criticized the court for its failure to reconsider the validity of Gutensohn's voye, which was ruled invalid by the court in connection with the voided emergency clause in Governor Bailey's 141-million-dollar highway bond refunding bill.
