Page Six HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Young Lovers Found Dead in Florida Jacksonville?, FJa., Got 12 — vUF)—• A 12-ycar-oicl girl and hcr 17-year-old sweetheart, found Inid- tiled in death, will be buried side by Side. The riddJo of how the young lovers met death slil Ipux/.les the police. But the parents, who had ined to keep them npart. are now sure they want them buried to gclhcr. Winell Syblc Ethridge, barefooted, and young Alonzo Daroy, Jr., wort, found dead in a ssndlbt baseball field yesterday. Tneir throats had been slit. She Jay face down. His head was propped against the small ot her bacK. A bloody pen knile that he had borrowed the night before ISy nearby. The sand around third base, where they died, was soggy with blood. Police, with only these clues, could only guess at what happened. They worked equally hard on the theory that there had been a murder and a suicide, or a double murder. But her parents, who for a year had vainly forbid the sixth grade pupil to.see her lover, were certain that, the youthful sheet metal worker had done her no harm. "I can't believe Lonzy would ever hurt her," A. W. Elhridge, her truck-driver father, .said. And Darby's parents were just as glad there is .no hard ieeling. The teenagers, whose plans to marry had been thwarted by her parents' objections, will be given a double funeral at the Grace Baptist church ' tomorrow. And their grave plots will be side by side. Although no love letters. have been found, Iriends say Ahere was S real romance between them. This is firmly indicated, they say, By their year of trystmg at the neighborhood store where the .pretty girl with long In-own curls Would run barefooted on buying errands. But the Ethridge family thought 12-year-old Winell was too young to marry, although big for her age, and extremely pretty. , Night before last, at about the same time Darby was borrowing the pen knife from his brother-in- law, Winell was sent on another errand, wearing dungarees rolled up io her knees, a sports shirt, and. no shoes. Once again, tha couple was seen together near the store. As her lather put it; "he always seemed to know, when she would be there." But this time, she never came back .

"They (the Republicans) tell you that they favor farm price support. But while you sat out here on a powder keg wailing for prices to blow up, they lit the fuse." ! He said the Republicans have (•'departed from the fundamental principal:; of Lincoln" and add.'d: "The. masters of the Republican ! party today would have been the I bitter enemies of Lincoln in his |Ume, just as they are the enemies of his principles today." o Here and There in Arkansas Little Rock, Oct. 13 —f/P) — Chester C.

Britain and l-'rancc joined , America in a drive to speed up ac-. lion in the council on the charges/ against Russia in the matter ol the oiocKade. Vishinsky's speech came after-a- broadside from U.

The Russian proposal foi^ a one-third arms reduction and, scrapping of atomic weapons was, under consideration, and Vishin- sky demanded dramatically: _ "Can you deny that the Soviet* proposal contains not an iota of aj shadow of a,hint of an attack ori anybody?" The speaker capped (hat by declaring that Capitalist and Communist ideologies could live side by: side in the',same world "if both sides try to. understand the other side.
