Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn Bowie Knife From Washington, Ark. to the Alamo BOWIE KNIFE, by Raymond W. Thorp, $3, The University of Now Mexico Press, Albuquerque, N.M.. This is the biography of a knife. It begins with a duel in the Arkansas House of Representatives and ends on the tragedy of the Alamo. The No. 1 character in the book is the world's most famous knife —whose half-formed idea was brought by James Bowie to Washington, Hcmpstcad county, Arkansas, more than a hundred years ago, and here was perfected and translated into steel by James Black, greatest blacksmith and ar- morer of the Old West. So the story belongs to our own section—in fact, our ' own county. I don't need to tell you it is a fascinating book, and that every family in southwest Arkansas ought to have a copy. For any story about weapons must necessarily deal also with the men who wielded them. Therefore Mr. Thorp tells not only the history of the Bowie Knife but the personal histories of the brothers Bowie—John and nezin and James—and the hundreds of friends and foes who went down the old Southwest Trail "through Washington an.l Fulton, this county, to Mexico when the world was young and Texas was a-borning. The story of James Black and his Washington smithy has always been known here, only 10 miles away.

It ended a one-day unscheduled holiday for 48(i elementary, junior high and high school students. The eight teachers, who forced the shutdown by refusing to return to their classrooms until paid for September and October work, conferred with James B. Nash, supervising principal of the Schuylkiil County district schools. Nash said he assured the teachers they would be paid through state financial aid. one unpublished manuscripts we printed for the first time was that of the late Steve Carrigan giving the history—and photograph— of one of Black's Bowie Knives which had come down through Mr. Carrigan's family. This one article carried the impetus for a fine book But it fell to the lot of Raymond W. Thorp, firearms and knife expert, now of Los Angeles, to do the 20 years' research work necessary to produce the complete and authentic story which makes "Bowie Knife" a standard authority on this section of American history. Mr. Thorp, born at Miami, Mp., worked as a boat hand on the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, served in World War I as a Navy small arms instructor, and about 1!)2G began his first work gathering material for "Bowie Knife". You know all this while reading it, Jor he has assembled the greatest mass of pioneer newspaper clippings I have ever seen—and one by one he knocks down errors and journalistic exaggerations to get at the final truth about Bowie and the blacksmith Black. Black perfected the greatest cutting blade since the days of the Arabian swords. He is believed to have re-discovered the Damascus secret of tempering steel—but before his death he lost it again. And in that story lies a tragedy whose power you won't realize until you have read the book. * * * By JAMES THRASHER On the clay when he virtually conceded the 1948 presidential election lo someone else, Henry Wallace said to his campaign manager, C. B. Baldwin. "We've got to build a party, Beanie, we've got lo build a party." The first fruits of this belated advice are exhibited in Mr. Baldwin's announcement that the third party is endorsing or withdrawing opposition from some 25 liberal Democratic candidates for Congress. This adds another touch of contradiction and confusion to one of the most illogical of the serious political movements in our history. Apparently the move is intended to provide a wedge for Mr. Wallace's re-entry into the Democratic Party, or at least its non-Dixie- crat branch, in time, for 1952. It is an obvious bid for the support of the Roosevelt family, the "Wilson Wyatls and Chester Bowleses and Helen Douglases and others who decided, early in the game, that of the reported.

"But the union's call to security guards to stay away from their jobs received varying response. In Eastern France some pits re ported that security guards 12 per cent of the other workers 'were ion the job. Some other areas also reported the security crews at work. Jules Moch, Minister of Labor, charged in a nationwide broadcast ;hat the Cominform had fomented ihe strike action. He said it could bring a major disaster to the French mining industry.

I had never heard of Zcninov, although he had a reputation as revolutionist in Czariat. days Mr. Weinbaum assured me that I would be in safe hands. After telephoning Mr. Zenzinov, he sent me to his home on Riverside Drive. I knew I was walking a tightrope by establishing contacts with anti-Communist elements. Mr. Zan- zinov showed himself as sympathetic to my plight as his friend the editor. The circumstances under which Mr. Zenzinov lived in 'one room did not bespeak affluence. I poured out my heart to him, and he told me thai he was sure arrangements could be made to put mc in a safe place. He described to me the work of the Tolstoy Foundation to aid refugees from Soviet oppression and the farm which was operated by Countess Alexandria Tolstoy, the favorite daughter of the great Russian writer.

ID —(/P)—The Big Three Western powers told the United Nations Security Council today that further negotiations with the Soviet Union on Germany ire useless as long as the Rus- ians keep a watertight blockade on Berlin. Dr. Philip C. Jessup of the United States said the Russian stranglehold on road, rail and river communications with Berlin was being tightened "even as the security council deliberates."

One thing seems evidrni, however. Mr. Wallace !uis made his move too late. This latest aboul- lace does not square with the general tone of a campaign which one political writer has aptly wrapped up in the slogan, "My Country, Always Wrong." It is interesting to note thai Mr. Baldwin, in announcing the switch, admitted that third-parly endorsement of a candidate could amount lo a kiss of death. In explaining why third party candidates hud been withdrawn from several races, he spoke of "pressure and threats of withdrawal of financial support exerted on many Democrats if they accepted our endorsement." In choosing the candidate's that H would support, the third party used the CIO yardstick lor rleler- mining the liberality of congressional incumbents from their voting record.
