Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn———Prophecy Repeated M, L. Nelson and the Road to Blcvins Last nighl while listening to C. Hamilton Moses preach the' gospel of state development and self- sufficiency I thought, "How long, Oh, how long has it been!" For the business leadership of Arkansas has been thorough!};, alive to the necessity of industrializing our natural resources ever since World War I. My own recollection goes back 22 years. Last night Mr. Moses satirized Arkansas- .people for being slow to buy their own products, but quick to buy those same products when they are shipped to another state, labeled there, and then sent back' to us: Well, I saw a graphic "example of this 22 years ago. 0: In 192G the South Arkansas Industrial Tour, sponsored by Camden Chamber of Commerce and supported by businesses in El Dorado, Little Rock'f.

PRICE 5c COW Sees Quick End to Uprising in Korea By WILLIAM R. MOORE Seoul, Oct. 21 — (If) — Korean Army units closed in on insurgents in the southern mountains tonight and a high source predicted a quick end to the revolt. Within 48 hours, the government source predicted, 1,300 rebels in the mountains will be captured. And in four days or less the cities of Yosu, southern springboard of the insurrection, and Sunchon, will be retaken by the government, he said. The cabinet of President Syng- man Rhee in a four-hour session lifted martial law in all of the republic except northern and southern Choa provinces. A U. S. offer of additional material was rejected by the cabinet the government source said, on the We sent our lumber to North Carolina and then bought it back again in the shape of furniture. But North Carolina got the labor cost and the investment profit— the things which make a state prosperous and great. So it's a long time that, we've been talking—but eventually talking by the right people gets results. For last night Mr. Moses told ol 1,500 new industries that have come to Arkansas in recent years. And if we keep hammering in the future as we have in the past there will come a day when much of Arkansas' raw material is worked into finished products right here at home, in our own plants, with our own management and labor. When, the State Department of Education honored M. L. Nelson yesterday on his retirement after 41 years as a director of the Blcvins consolidated rural school district I thought of another trip I made to Blevins, back in 1929, to meet the same Mr. Nelson. Five of us went up there over a winding dirt road: Roy Anderson, B. R. Hamm, Thurman Rhodes, E. P. Young and myself. Our purpose was to join forces with the Blevins people in a plan to get the State Highway Department to build a gravel highway from Hope to Blevins. We met the Blevins delegation in Mr. Nelson's store. Well, u'e got State Highway 24 North built—and if my recollection is correct that was the last road Arkansas got before the original Martineau highway bond money ran out. So Mr. Nelson all these years has had many community interests besides schools—and it's nice to remember that, great as his 41- year record as school director is Candidate Agrees Eggs 21 — (UP)—Idaho Sen.

Loyal troops scaled off the rebels on the southern end of the peninsula by quick action. Army units moved on the insurgents from four directions and blocked escape by sea from the harbor of Yosu. Africa Added \Vashington. Oct. 21 — (/Pi —The United States' global airforce. already operating in Europe and the Far East, is adding another continent to its training ground—Africa. B-29 Superfortresses taking off from American-used bases in England and Germany now are winging down to Accra, a British colony on the Gold Coast of Africa. The airfield there was built originally by the British, primarily for commercial operation. With America's entry into World War, II, the air transport command developed the base as one unit in the ferry route to the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Air force headquarters said today there is no United States military installation at Accra now. The Supcrfc"t*"ure facilities thore ,for- refueling on -their training excursions down to the Gulf of Guinea, then turn around and head back. Under the present training program, the B-29s do not continue South or East to other warbuilt fields in Africa. The new training operation began about a week ago. Its aim is to familiarize present day air crews with conditions in a part of the world proved by World War II to be vital to the United States. The runway at Accra is understood to be ,300 feet long. This is ample for the B-29s and such transports as the C-54. But it is not clear whether heavier aircraft now being used or built by the United States air force could operate from the field. Runway length is not so much of a factor paving. as the thickness of B-3G weighs 278,000 pounds loaded; a B-29 only 105,000 pounds. The distance to the Gold Coast from England—where three groups of B-29s with "the shower of raw eggs he <?' u ' jys are now based—is about got here last night.
