Make Plans Now to Attend Third District Livestock Show in Hope September 20-25-Six Full Days Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn Arkansas Gazette Replies to Star Comment on M. & A. Replying to our opposition Monday to a proposal that the state government take over the defunct Missouri & Arkansas railroad, and our further suggestion that Uic only hope of reviving the road lay in its operation as a sort of farm co-operative, the Arkansas Gazette said editorially this morning: "This is reasonable enough, except lor one thing: time has run out. The M. & A. is under d'.-nth sentence by the Interstate Commerce Commission. which has agreed to let its present owners junk it .... "According to those who have fought the M. & A.'s battles in the past, there is no hope of raising funds in time to save the road. This m cans state action or none at all .... It seems to us that a special session of the legislature is very much in order." I don't think so. I claim to be thoroughly acquainted with the financial history of the M. & A., and from personal contact with citizens who lived along its line for many years I know still more. And if, after all these many months of suspension the M. & A. Still can not rally private capital to its rescue—as a sort of larni co-operative rather than a full- fledged railroad operation— then that becomes the final decision ot its own people; and there isn't going to be any intervention by the state government, regardless how much the Gazette and this writer attempt to worry the issue. I might elaborate my own position regarding federal or state aid to fundamental utilities, of which the railroads certainly are one. I feel it is permissible for government to help private carriers, whether rail, highway, or airborne, for the sake of peace-time economy as well as the emergency of war—but only where mere is a substantial demand tor such service by the people of the territory that the carrier serves. It is one thing to ask government to "cover" the last a or 10 per cent of a losing railroad or airline proposition—but it is an entirely dilferent thing to attempt to underwrite with public funds the most disastrous railroad venture in the history of America. The name of that venture is Missouri & Arkansas, formerly the Missouri & North Arkansas. the detailed story of which was told by Orvillc Thrasher Gooden, Hendrix college professor of economics, in his book published in 1020, "The History of the Missouri & North Arkansas Railroad Strike (1921-23)." This is a heart-breaking story we are discussing, I know of no solution other than, the one I have already proposed — to reorganize the road as a farm co-operative without any regular payroll, simply to serve the farm and mountain- industry territory through which the road runs. But the Gazette says this has already been thought of, and yet private citizens are unwilling after many months o£ suspension to risk anything further on reviving the road. ' I have written many pieces about the M. fc A.. Its condition has been known for ycafs —years beiore this final suspension. And now it seems to me the Gazette's own admission proves the situation hopeless—which was a judgment that was very nearly expressed by Dr. Gooden in his book published 22 years ago. « * \. Soviets See Need for Worship, But Their Solution Is Faulty By JAMES THRASHER Sometimes it may seem to us that the Soviet government is concentrating its thought and effort on the advancement of its imperialistic ambitions. But reports from within the vast mysterious USSR indicate that the Kremlin is ceaselessly promoting its latest interpretation of basic communism, and settling the dialectic squabbles among the faithful. Right now the dictators of Russian thought are pushing the old Marxian dogma of materialism. During the war they ceased their campaign against religion, partly one may presume, to please their allies and partly lo please and comfort their embattled countrymen. But now religion, both Christian and Moslem, has again become "the opiate of the people." The clergy once more is attacked as the servant of bourgeois reaction. Communists are being warned that there can be no truce between religion and their Marx-made creed. Another example of the renewed promotion of materialism is the end of the long argument between the agricultural scientist Lyseuko and the more traditional 'Soviet scientists. The ruling powers have approved Lysenko's contention that there is no such tiling as heredity in botany, and that the accepted, demonstrated doctrines of Mendel and Morgan are fal.se. Marx and Lenin said that belief in heredity was ancestor worship that promoted class snobbery. So heredity also had to be banished from the vegetable kingdom. Godlessness by official ediet is not funny. Neither is the perversion of scientific truth for political reasons. Yet it i:. ridiculous, even amusing, to find such things in a country so ruled by inherited political tradition and so haunted by enforced reverence. To call Marx's writings the Bible of communism is to credit the Bible with a greater influence on the everyday government nf nien that ii probably has c-\vr exert.-d. The word of Alar.--:, and of Lenin his apostle, is law. It may be open to some differences of interpretation. It is a hereditarv Uxiy of thought which, in the hands J>i the self-anointed. ruK-s life lives and actions (,]' some ^'UO.OOO.tiilU people.

The action brings several hundred residents inside the city. At its last meeting the council accepted another section north and east of the city limits and incorporated it into the city of Hope. Several hundred residents estimated from 500 to 600, live in both areas. The section accepted last night runs from Hope City limits to the overpass east of Highway 07, to the Missouri Pacific Railroad on the north boundary and almost to Pines Swimming Pool to the south. In other action to bolster the city's population the council passed a resolution officially calling for a census to be taken as soon I as possible. The council feels it is losing much money in turn- back funds which is based on the last census. The resolution calls for the city to post required deposits by the Bureau of Census. A request by Floyd McDowell th.it the city extend a water lino beyond the limits along 16th Street to a portion of Southland Heights was turned down. Mr. McDowell made known his intention to incor- norate the section inside the city. The council told him to construct his own line and when the section is incorporated the city would buy the line. Clyde Hosier's resignation from i the police department to attend school was accepted. An application to construct a rifle range is to be held in abeyance until land title is cleared. Vincent Foster's request that the city construct water lines to the Beverly Hills addition was granted. E. L. Archer requested a permit to construct a gasoline service station on the old Brookwood property on East Third St. The station will be in connection with a proposed new Studebaker Agency site to be located there. The hearing was sot for October 5. The Water and Light plant was instructed to proceed with construction of an electrical line to serve customers on the Spring Hill and Lewisville roads and to investigate possibility of constructing another line from Highway 29 to the Alton Community. The Council voted not to sell approximately 1000 feet of wire now stored at Fair park. No action was taken on a request by Mrs. Leon Bundy that the city help take care of the dust problem on Fulton and Mack Streets which will be created during the livestock show. No action was taken on a proposal to blacktop the streets around the courthouse square. It was revealed that another plan already was in the making to take care of the matter An ordinance levying the regular cit3' property tax now in force was passed. The group set rental fees on the city-owned air compressor and jack-hammer at $25 per day and $15 for half days. (AP)—Means Associated Press \NEA)—Moans Hewspaper Enterprise Ass'n.

The melon exceeds by three pounds the 142-pound Triumph brought in last week, from the Middlebrooks Farm. Mr. Hubbard has shipped many 100-pound melons this season and still has several that will top the ; century mark in his patch.

By'HAL BOYLE New York. —(/Pi — Trellis Mae Peeble, like any other housewife, often complained that "women's work is never done." And—like any other husband — Wilbur Peeble could never understand, why. After all. didn't be get his work done at the office? Sure. And why'.' Efficiency, organization. Soinelimes he got a little weary of hearing his wife complain she bad more bureaus to clean out than congress, more floors to sweep than a street cleaner on roller skates. And he gol particularly tired of hearing her complain about the time she spent doing the laundry and washing the dishes. 'Okay." he would say, "then we'll start eating out of a trough. We can hose it down after every other meal." But this remark rarely cleared Ihe air. It only brought into his wife's eyes a look of quiet murder. [t was Wilbur's contention that any woman could cut in half the time she spent doing housework if she only uruani'/ed her tasks. Reading his Sunday newspaper the other rlav Wilbur came across n slory by a man who had proved 'his to be true. He was a young navy commander whose wife had broken her ankle. For five weeks the 'commander had run his home and office both. Wilbur read a few paragraphs recounting this man's victory over women's age-old problem of house- el, anint;, and how easy he had f'.und it by discovering lime-sav- 'im .snort cuts. With a yelp of joy Wilbur U).-: ; ,cd the paper over to his wile. "l,ijoky here. Head this. What'd I always tell you'.' Here's a fellow cut down the time, it takes lo keep house from (> hours and ','"1 minutes a 'lay to only three hours. Boy, '!< >j s he make women look pili- I'ul!" (Irin'lv Trellis Mae took the paper. Silently she read the article throu-h us her husbairi watched her with the grin of a cat that has eani;ii' ; , (at mouse after IOIIK Mail-in,;. "1 ^ee,' ! uiid TrelU:, iMue, when she had finished, "that he bought Ian electric dishwasher a nd an electric ironer." "I didn't read that far," said Wilbur uneasily, his smile fading. "And one of the ways he saved time was to cook dinner in the morning, put it in the icebox abd then heat it up again in the evening. That might be a good idea at that." "You know I don't like warrned- over food," grumble:! Wilbur. "When the wife's ankle got well," continued Trellis Mae, "they divided up the housework. The map says they run their house like a ship now — every member of the family has certain duties. He says it's lols of fun. He calls his wife the skipper." "Uh hum—um-m-m," said Wilbur, Jurying himself behind Ihe sports seeton of the paper. "We could do that—let's try it," said Trellis Mae brightly. "You could scrub the bathroom twice a week, do the beds, and wash the • windows. We could save enough [time to do all the things we don't find lime for now." Wilbur thoughl fast. The last thing in the world he wanted was to come home and find a wife with her work all done, eager to go out for evening enterUiinmenl. iHe made a strangled sound. | "Did you say 'aye, aye'V" ! purred Trellis Mae. ! "1 did not." said her husband. : "Let's drop the whole thing. Can't ,'yuu take a joke?" ! "Well, I'm tired of thai one," snappi d Tiellis Mae. "If you don't : like the way I keep this house. .admiral, then we're going to start .playing houseboat, just like the inavv man you seem to admire." ' Wilbur shut up. Next month when Trellis Mae handed him the household bills, he saw two strange item.s: --electric; dishwasher and . electric ironer." He looked at Tiellis Mae— and she looked right back. Meekly Wjlb'-r sat down and wrote out the checks. And then his wife did sdiiK-iliinj; Wilbur thouuh was altogether unnecessary. She .saluted .him and said: ,! "Aye. aye. .skipper-- K\ ei _v tnnif; : ^hip-Shape?" Berlin Intended tb Upset Talks Washington, Sept. (i —(/l>) — Secretary Marshall said today Communist attacks on the Berlin city government were largely intended to upset talks ot the Big Four military governors on the crisis in the Soviet-blockaded capital. Marshall said that the efforts to disrupt these talks must be firmly resisted. He declined at a news conference to say that any resistance involves military measures. Just before seeing newsmen, the secretary of state received from the military high command at the Pentagon a detailed account of the situation in Germany and in Berlin. ' • This meeting followed a session yesterday of the National Security Council at which Marshall outlined the diplomatic picture in Berlin. It was understood (ho meeting with the military chiefs today was called to give the secretary a precise briefing on the strength and capabilities of American armed forces in the area. Questioned at his news conference, Marshall said the Berlin disorders followed a familiar Communist pattern. He said they were not .nclincd to aid efforts of the mili- :ary governors to work out a settlement there. After he noted the talks arc proceeding, Marshall was asked whether the disorders climaxed by he kidnapping oarlyl today of 1!) Western zone Berlin pol'icemen, cast a shadow on th" negotiation 1 ;. The secretary said he would leave this deduction 10 the questioner. Earlier, top American officials were studying a "progress" report just received from Gen. Lucius D. Clay, the American military governor in Germany. President Truman cleared the way for possible fast new moves by calling his chief foreign policy and defense advisers to a special White House conference yesterday only a few hours after his return from a tvyo-day campaign trip. The White House gave no inkling of what actions were considered or taken at the unusual session of the National Security Council. The only announcement was that "this was a special meeting In connection with the Berlin situation." The security council, which normally mqcts only every other week, is composed of the secretaries of slate, army, navy, air force and the chairman of the National Security Resources Board. Set up by Congress in 1047, its duties are to "advise the president with respect to the integration of domestic. foreign and military policies relating to the national security x x x." Uranium Rush Georgia in Battle of s ....By The Associated Press Georgia Democrats turned out in hp;:vv numbers today to hand down their verdict in the 20-month old battle of the governors. There were flaming crosses in some parts of tho sta'e as Herman Talmadge and Gov. M. E. Thompson squared off in a primary election to resume the fight for tho governor's jnh which for three months of 1047 gave Georgia two chief executives. That situation followed the death of Governor-elect Eugene Talmade—Herman's father — before he could take office. Thompson claimed the post because he hd bnen elected lieutenant governor. Young Talmadge Claimed it after tho state legislature gave him a majority vote. The state supremo court finally decided in favor of Thompson, bu.t falmade was out lo'lav to make good the "I'll be back" pledge he made then. Backed by the Ku Klux Klan, lacimadge campaigned on a while supremacy platform and vigorously attacked Thompson's record in office Thompson in turn, declared that Talmadge had fought him in 1947 with the support of "hoodlum thugs, goons and drunks." With election assured for the primary winner, a record 1 195 lf!H voters— Including $38,870 Negroes —were signed up. Hoke O'Kellcv. Jloke Willis and the Rev. Joseph A.

Some 04,000 workers remained idle in work stoppages in the oil, trucking and shipping industries while a CIO union set Sept. 17 as a strike date for 25,000 telephone workers. The CI OAssociation of Communications Equipment Workers, installers of telephone equipment, said the walkout would affect 2,300 Bell Telephone company locations in 43 states. The strike was called aginst the Western Electric Manufacturing Company over wages and working conditions. Negotiations arc continuing toward a settlement. The union has demanded a pay boost of 15 cents an hour. The company has offered eight cents. The workers now receive from 88 cents to $1.54 an hour. The eight-day old trucking strike in New York City and Northern New Jersey by some 15,000 AFL teamsters showed little signs of early settlement. But federal, state and city mediators planned further meetings with officials of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in an attempt to settle the wage dispute. The strike affected many segments of business and industry. A | "crtical" situation in New York's | milk supply because of a shortage of fiber containers was reported, and consumers were finding dwindling food supplies on grocery store shelves. The city's hngu garment industry was reported 50 pel- cent behind in making deliveries and continuation of the walkout may u»-ce the- layoff of 38,000 textile workers. There w;>s no break indicated hi the week-old strike of 2H,GOO CIO longshoremen on the West Coast. Strike leaders planned a meeting with army officers today in Sail Francisco to discuss the handling of army cargo. Shipowners have refused to negotiate with unions whose leaders failed to file non- Communist affidavits under the Tan-Hartley Act. Wages and the disputed niring hall issue had been the chief items under negotiations.
