Make Plans Now to Attend Third District Livestock Show in Hope September 20-25~Six Full Days sefesr" "^BSBP" . __ ST . * Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn Greetings to Third District Stock Show Visitors Today Hope greets the first of thousands of visitors as the host city of the Third District Stock Show, The agricultural South is changing—or this Stock Show, now well entrenched in commodious buildings in Fair park, wouldn't bo here at all. Our section is going in for livestock as a •major farm activity, today's Stock Show being merely the climax of a trend that developed during the 1929-33 depression. The drift toward stock raising has gone on without interruption for 15 years. It has had a deiinitc effect upon cotton farming, of course— but it is significant that cotton, instead of bowing out entirely, has in turn adopted modern production methods. It is no coincidence that today's edition of The Star carries not only the opening stories of the Third District Stock Show but also pictures of the first actual field operations of the mechanical cotton-picker in this area. .We have, therefore, livestock as . a new means of livelihood—and an improved livelihood from cotton. The fundamental meaning of all i this, naturally, is diversification— by which the southwest Arkansas farm community now draws revenue not only from its traditional staple crop but from beef also. The horizon of this new future is unlimited. Cotton is faced with competing fibers, which it is learning to meet and overcome—but there isn't, and never will be, a substitute for meat. It is a bright day, therefore, that . we celebrate on this opening - date I of the 11)48 Third District Slock Show. Greetings to everyone! U. S. 'Intellectuals' Shocked in Poland; Henry Should.! Gone By JAMES THRASHER It may be that the World Congress of Intellectuals in Wra- claw, Poland, will accomplish a useful purpose. The congress was Communist- inspired and Communist-dominated. Delegates attended not only from the Soviet-dominated countries, but from several free nations as well, including the United States and Britain. They were treated to a series of opening speeches which had little to say about peace, but much about America—and none of it good. A fellow named Fadayev, pics- idcnt of the Soviet Writers' Association, denounced "American imperialism,'' of course. He also • dwell on the "reactionary aggressive" elements of our culture, spoke of our literature as "disgusting filth." Ilya Ehrenburg, the Soviet journalist who paid us a visit a couple of years back, held torth on America's "bourgeois barbarism" and asked the delegates to enlist in a fight against "America's aggressive obscurantism." The intellectuals, being intellectuals, doubtless knew what that meant. Included among these speakers' listeners were O. John Rogge of the United States, and Prof. Allan Taylor of England. Prof. Taylor teaches history at Oxford University and once got fired as a BBC commentator for being too "pro- Russian." Mr. Rogge, former U. S. Assistant Attorney General, is now running for office in New York City under the banner of the left- wing American Labor Party. One might think that Mr. Rogge and Prof. Taylor might have been in the amen corner. But instead the charges of Comrades Fadayev and Ehrenburg seem to have offended their good sense and perhaps even their patriotism. Prof. Taylor made a reply in which he said that "this has been a congress preaching war, not a congress preaching peace." He denounced the Russians' violent abuse of the west, and urged them to "improve your intellectual good manners, to think further and try to understand other people." Mr. Rogge told the congress: WEATHER FORECAST Arkansas: Partly cioiKly this aft crnonn, tonight and Tuesday. Scat- lorcd showers in northwest this afternoon and in noilh and extreme west portiont.

I do not think there are any panaceas in any system o) religion or economies or politics." We wonder whether Mr. Rogge will return to his activities within i way. the far-left ALP with the same c ' enthusiasm, he may have taken with him. It must have been quite a shock for him lo see laid before him in Poland the bare bones of the desperately anti-American pol- iey which, with some sugar coating, so often seems to be the position of his own party. The sponsors of the World Congress of Intellectuals made the old, time-wasting political mistake of convincing themselves. Instead of trying lo win over the upposi- j lion. they gathered together a group of apparently like-minded people and, by vehement exaggeration, tried to whip them into a frenzy of believing anew what they already believed. But apparently they went too far lor Mr. Rogge and Prof. Taylor. Our guess would be that, as a cunsociucnce, these tv.'o gentlemen may have lost a little of their feeling about the righlness and purity of Russian rnoliveb.

South Florida from Miami by Sid Refuses to Answer Probers Arabs Government for Palestine Amman, Trans-Jordan, Sep!. 20 -W)—Over the strong protests of i rans-Jordan and Iraq, the Arab League announced formation today of an Arab government for 'alcstine. Ahmed Hilmy Pasha, military •overnor of the Arab-held section * Jerusalem, was appointed prime minister of the new government, an official announcement here said, despite a declaration from King Aoudllah of Trans-Jor- oaii that such a government would amount to partitioning Palestine ine Arabs have fought against partition ever since the beginning no said. King Abudllah refused 'o permit formation of the government "within the security zone °,K- 1° Trans -J°' - dan government, which extends fro mtlic .Egyptian Kingdom s frontiers, to the fron- uers of Syria and Lebanon." He added: "Creation of such a government an arbitrary act without the consent of the Palestinian people a thing I will not agree to and wili oppose.

Abdcl Rah- " ••-•i >-''.z-m Pasha, secretary-general of the seven-national Arab League, announced that every possible material aid, including an army of volunteers, would be placed at the disposal of the new government. Abdullah, in a message to the league today, called attention to the met that Hilmy Pasha advised him the league had approved crention of the new government. Trans-Jordan's delegate has dc- mtcd this," the king said. "In any case formation of such a government, in our opinion, would turn bvk Palestine to the disturbed situation prevailing before May 15 (the date of Britain's surrender of the mandate and the' 1 "Unitecf 'Nations Institution of Partition). As the Arab legion is now fighting alone in Jerusalem, where hostilities are still in force in spite of the truce, and as this central front including Ramallah, is under the authority of the Arab legion and the situation is still confused, we cannot allow any other hands to interfere in the responsibility of our military government, especially those who are anxious to rule Palestine." He said if the new government actually comes into being and wins United Nations recognition, this, coupled with recognition by some of the major powers of the Jewish claims, would constitute partition. (His idea is that all Palestine should be united under Arab rule). (Informed sources in Damascus said a constituent assembly for a new Arab state in Palestine may be set up somewhere outside the Holy Land's borders in the next six days. Several leading Palestinian Arabs, they said, have been called lo Cairo to discuss the proclamation of such a state, which Continued on page two Washington, Sept. 20 —M 1 )— Mrs. Louis Brnnstcn Barman refused today to answer House Un-American Activities Committee questions regarding its investigation of atomic espionage. She declined on the constitutional grounds that replies might incriminate her, Rep. McDowell (R-Pa) told reporters after ho and Rep. Hubert (D-La) had questioned the slender, attractive heiress more than an hour and ahalf. The subpoena calling her before the committee was extended indefinitely and she was forbidden to leave the country, McDowell said. It was the first lime she had appeared before the committee which has mentioned several times that it believes she has information regarding operations ot] Soviet agents in California during the war.

Mrs. Bcrman herself gave reporters copies of a statement she ;aid she had read to the commit- :ec.

I deeply resent the slanders about me in the press, sed on releases by the Thomas Un-American Activities) committee. I feel that the purpose of the committee and of this hearing is to do me harm." Mrs. Bcrman added she comes from a family of California pioneers, and , - hryc been fortunate in having considerable financial means .which have given me a —„ .vil' sense of social responsibility."' A committee official said, meanwhile, that plans to have a subcommittee question Mrs. Oksana Kasenkina in New York Wednesday have been postponed at the request of her doctor.
