In fact, some suspect Stalin's aim iti staging the whole affair may be to give a formal, open hint a« to who the next boss should be. This may be Stalin's way, they believe, of lessening the possibility of a bloody struggle for power within the Communist high command after he dies. Until they have rfiore time to analyze Moscow's announcement of the calling of the first Communist congress since 1939, American diplomats say the theory rather than view a considered opinion. But here is what they think: Stalin's heir apparently will be the man who's chosen to be chair man of the Pracsidium. to be organized at the meeting to replace the Politburo. The 12-man Politburo, now the top governing body, has no chairman or chief executive. But a Pracsidium under the Russian setup generally does have one. Anyone picked for this job would automatically be proclaimed pub lically as the most important Com- Speeding Car Only Clue in Brutal Slaying < RIVERSIDE, Calif. (/P) — A mys terious speeding car was the only clue today to the brutal slayer of Kathryn Knodel, 16, whose battered nude body was found on a desert highway early yesterday. Motorist Fred Lacy told officers he met a fast-traveling automobile a few moments before he came updri the body on a lonely road near Palm Springs. . Pollen said it apparently hacS een thrown from that car. The chicle could not have passed with- ut running over the body, police aid, and there were no tire marks n the girl's flesh. Chemical tests are being made y sheriff's officers here today to etermine whether the girl was aped. The Redlands High School stu- cnt's death was attributed to skull racturcs. Her head bore marks of many heavy blows from blunt weapon, possibly a tire on. Five of these were deep nough to have caused death. The girl had been dead two ours when her body was dis- oveced. Oak leaves and red earth n her hair indicated she had been lain somewhere in the Redlands rea not far from her home, and he slayer had driven down into he desert, where he dumped thCp ody.

It is entirely possible that Stalin limself will be designated chair- r.an of the new Praesidium. But, f so, why for the first time since 1925 is he not to give the main address to the congress, the report of, the Central Committee? ( This is a sort of state of the union speech summing up Communist stewardship of the Soviet Union since the last congress met. In this caso'Jt will cover a 13- year period and will be especially important. Malenkov, a Communist party wheel who worked his way up from the ranks like Stalin, is now scheduled to give this report-, the most important thing on the agenda. Furthermore, neither Mar shal* Beria, head of the Soviet secret police and Deputy Prime Minister Malenkov's main rival, nor Deputy Premier V. M. Molotov, is scheduled at this time to play any j prominent role in the congress j party session. This may be a clue that Molotov is being pushed into the background, since he read the new five-year plan> at each of the { two previous congress meetings, in 1934 and 1939. Molotov is 62 and his age has been considered a factor against him in speculation on Stalin's sue' cessor. American officials know little about Malenkov except that several years ago he launched a determined 'campaign to make sure the floors of all Soviet factories were kept clean. He also was a key figure in setting up the Cominform, the guiding Soviet policy bureau for Russia's Eastern Europe satellites. At \, ful of politiciai^f despite his fame in the rodeo arena, on the Follies' formstagc in New York, and on the lecture platform, he never forgot the people back home and re-1L turned to them time and again. t, : He brought his humorous lecture tour into Arkansas in 1927 as a benefit performance for the flood victims of that year, just one of the many unselfish acts of the most generous public figure of our times. As a 'member of the reception committee from El Dorado, where I then lived, I met Will at Smackover and journeyed b\ick to the oil 'capital with him. That night in the El Dorado high school auditorium Will turned the guns of good humor loose on the oil field bankers. Everyone marveled how a national figure could pick up so much gossip in a few hours — until the suspicion leaked out that he had been primed j by Joe K. Mahony, attorney, who! knew absolutely all about every-) thing for miles around ... Will Rogers' appearance for the Hope area was at Tcxarkana, and many drove over there to hear him. . He was a great American, close to the hearts of his people, and while I haven't seen the picture that tells his life-story I can't imagine it being anything but great. Will's protrayal ought to be as authentic as human nature can make it; the actor is his son, former congressman and humorist in his own right. California Again Jolti by Quake; Balcersfiel Hardest Hit, Two U. S. Sues Oil Companies for $67 Million NEW YORK UP>— Four major American oil companies and six subsidiaries are being sued for 67 million dollars by the government, which says it—and the U. S. taxpayers—were overcharged on foreign aid oil shipments to Europe. In the latest step in a joint congressional-administration war on an alleged international oil cartel, three separate civil suits were filed here yesterday in Federal Court. Atty. Gen,. Ja,,mes p. McGranery. in Washington, described the suits as "a test of whether the defendants, having control over the supply of Middle East crude oil shipped to countries participating in the foreign aid program, can block the efforts of the govern- and county constitutional officers, I ment agencies to protect govern- — Here's 'a clipping tfi'aTs been kicking aroul.d my desk for several days — a dispatch from McGehee dated Augi st 17, reporting that the Dcsha County Democratic Committee has gone on record favoring a four-year term for state Living a life of ease in Hempstead county today is a group of Chinchillas, fab'ulous fur-bearing rodents that arc practically extinct in their native Andes Mountains. The friendly little animal above is one of a pair recently purchased by Paul Ralcy, local railway man, from Harold Stephens who first brought them to this section two years ago. Although expensive to buy Chinchillas cost practically nothing to feed and are very easy to raise. In their air-condilioned pens Mr. Haley's pair takes life easy, occasionaly nibbling a raisin, nay or a peanut. The story of the Chinchilla is a romantic one that dates back to about 900 A. D. with the Chincha Indians of the Andes Mountains snaring the thick furred rodents for their pelts. The 16th Century explorers traded with the Indians and introduced the furs to Europe but they were so rare and Cine that only royalty could afford them. This popularity started wholesale slaughter and few pf the Chinchillas survived in their homeland some 17,000 feet high in the Andes. In 1918 South American government put an embargo on the animal and they were aujiost a legend when Mr F. Chapman," American mining engineer first glimpsed one in his Andes Mountain camp. He was amazed at the little only. Breeders figure it will be from five to seven years before thero will be enough to safely start selling pelts to Curriers. Furriers arc of different opinions as to the value ot the littjc animals in their business. Many believe they will have to take their place with mink and oilier prize furs. However, faith of the breeders remain high and the current market price for a breeding pair is $1,250. Only two years ago the price was $1,650 a pair. An adult chinchilla Weighs aboljft 22 ounces. The family produces «a .litter in 111 days- averaging';-twn babies and there are usually two litters a year. The babies reach maturity within 10 to 15 mrmtlis.

That is, a man could not run again until after he had stayed out of office a full term. Arkansas is suffering from too many elections and not enough stable government. Campaign hurrah is exciting stuff, but you don't get too much work done with an election threat every other year. I know some people will argue that when the voters find they have made a mistake the two- year term enables them to throw the rascal out quickly. But by the same token, a good and courageous public officer can find himself threatened by a belligerent minority after only a little more than a year in office. Is our two-year-term system perfect? Looking at the perennial problems of the highways and the schools I wouldn't say so. We need a longer term, with a ban on re-election, and the better planning- and stability that the lengthier run in office should bring, particularly for the state government. In a day when every home-town 'citizen has to fight the constant threat of invasion by the federal government the stability and security of the state is our No. 1 consideration. Unless we take care of our state government we shall lose every last local authority to the national capital 1,100 miles away. The suits cover Middle Eastern oil deliveries by the firms to Marshall Plan countries in Europe between May, 1949, and May, 1952. McGranery accused the major companies of flouting federal laws by using their subsidiaries to maintain a two-price system—charging the responsible government agencies more than other customers. He said the companies violated federal laws designed to hold crude oil prices at reasonable levels while the free world rearms. Financing of Middle Eastern oil for European countries by the Mutual Security Administration (MSA) was stopped in June after the oil firms reportedly refused to make refunds on purchases made during the three years covered in the suits. MSA and its predecessor, the Economic Co-operation Ad ministration, are the agencies involved. Companies named in the three suits and damages asked of them are: Standard Oil Company of New Jersey and its wholly owned subsidiary, Esso Export Corp., both of New York—a total of $31,795,619. Standard Oil Company of California, the Texas Company of New York and their jointly owned subsidiaries: Bahrein Petroleum Company, Ltd., a Canadian Corporation; California-Texas Oil Company, Limited.; Caltex Oceanic Ltd., and Mid-East Crude Sales Company, all incorparted in the Bahamas but with some offices in New York—$21.427.722. Socony-Vacuum Oil Company. Inc., of New York, and its wholly owned subsidiary, the Socony-Vac- uum Overseas Supply Company, Inc., of Fort Lee, N. J.—$14,118,498. temperatures varying from oven- heat in day's to refrigerator-like at nights. He organized a trapping party which hunted for years without finding any more of the animals. They were ready to give up when at an altitude of 12,000 feet Indian trappers discovered and trapped a family of fourteen. Chapman patiently moved them down the mountains .a few hundred feet at a time to acclimate them before moving on. After an arduous trip across the equator he finally arrived in California in 1923 .with four female and seven male'' Chinchillas which are the 'parent stock of virtually all in the world today. There are some 8,200 breeders in the U. S. and Canada at the present time but they' arc still being raised for' breeding purposes or oat, hay, peanuts, raisins. His fur is blending of colors giving a pearl gray appearance. The great secret of his fur is that a single hair follicle or root has as many as 80 hairs, giving the fur a great density and finer than a spider's web. It would be difficult for a blindfolded man to tell when his hand first came in contact with the fur. He is a friendly rodent, a distant relative of the rabbit ;uid makes a wonderful pet. The only chinchillas that become coats arc those, which fall victim to old age or disaster. There arc several breeders in Arkansas and Harold Stephens 'Of Hope and Blevins is currently president of the state association. Mr. Stephens purchased a pair in 1950 and at the present has over 30 at his Blevins home. i Lewis ordered his mon' out of I the pits In tribute to fellow minors who had died or been mniincd ml mine disasters during the past 10 yours.
