Our Daily rea Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn ~- n Carl Bailey What I Wrote About Him 14 Years Ago Carl Bailey's untimely death in Little Rock Saturday at the age of 34 recalls an editorial I wrote , .14 years ago about the man who ,|fwas later to become governor. The editorial, dated August 4, 1334, was written in behalf of Mr. Bailey's candidacy for attorney general of Arkansas (he was then prosecutor of Pulaski county), and it carries us back 23 years. I believe it is as fine a tribute as might be written today. What I wrote then was this—QUOTE In the Spring of 1025 I was with the Arkansas Gazette on a leave of absence from the El Dorado , .^News. I was assigned to the statc- ' ' house "run". I walked into the Department of Mines, Manufactures & Agriculture. A pleasant- faced clerk was alone there, reading a law-book. i You.know what a day in Spring is like". Well, this was the sort of c?ay that the sort of man Carl Bailey is would choose to tell a newspaper reporter about his dreams. He was a clerk, just one of the thousands of clerks all over Arkansas. But a friend had gotten him this particular job bc- *-cause it allowed him a little extra time to study. He wanted to make a lawyer out of himself. Now I expect Carl Bailey is older than this writer. Here I was out of school several years, and more or less established in a profession—and this older man was only now finding time for the thing that he wanted. What was it Carl Bailey wanted? Why did he hunt through the law-book, one office clerk in a thousand? ,., In the law book is power. Carl >£i Bailey never spoke of money. But he saw all about him men moving j dumbly—even there in the great stale-house, rubbing elbows with l he heads 1 of their government, they worked day after clay without interest, without curiosity, wjthout hope, knowing no more years after than when they first Uegan. In the law-book there is light. Carl. Bailey saw that light—1 remember. fl Years passed. I came up from V El Dorado to'Hope and bought a newspaper. The Sin-ing of 1D30 there was a thunderous political campaign going on in Pulaski county, and a young lawyer named Bailey was making the other candidates for prosecuting attorney take to the tall timber. Bailey got elected. 1 wondered at the time if this Carl Bailey were Ihe same Carl Bailey I- met five years before in a clerk's job, and I had a firsl-class hunch hfE was. I never did know for certain ''i' until I met him again in the Ar. kansas Gazette office the Spring of 11)32. I shook hands with him in Iho spirit you would greet a trans-Atlantic flier you saw take off for Europe, meeting him safe and sound in Paris. You see—I knew him when ....

His death was unexpected. Masonic services were to be held at the Albert Pike Consistory at 2 p. m.. followed by graveside services at Roselawn Memorial Park by the Rev. Eulis H.

Thomas E. Dcsvcy of New York generally is counted today tha probable winner of the presidential election as the last week of campaigning begins. Election day is Nov., 2, one week from tomorrow. About half the 93, 000,000 potential voters are expected to stay home for one reason or another. The tolal vole is csti mated to be about 47.000,000. That is nearly 1,000.000 under the number cast when Dewey ran the first time and was licked by FDR. The largest vote ever cast in this coun try was 49.800,000 in 1940 when Mr. dell L. Willkie.

After Ihe decision was reached against the Russian plan, Bramug lia went to tell Andrei Y. Vishin- sky Soviet deputy foreign minister, the Western answer. The dclegales, more serious than usual, went immediately to the Palais Dea Chaillot for a meeting o the Security Council, which was delayed two hours for their con ference. Bramuglia was reported to have president on the ballot next Tues day in one or more states. The four principal parties and candidates are: Democrat: President .Truman Republican: Dewey Progressive: Henry A. Wallace, State's Rights: Gov. J. Strom Thurmond, South Carolina. The other parties are: Socialist, Socialist-Labor, Socialist-Worker; Greenback, Prohibition and Vege tarian. State contests for political office in some instances overshadow the presidential contest. That is partly because so many people think Dewey is in, but more particularly because the contest for Senate control is very close.

UNQUOTE and Non-Worship of Candidates Is Good, Healthy Political Sign By JAMES THRASHER • A number of political reporters, buck from the first leg of Ihe . Truman and Dewey campaign trips, have commented on the fact that both candidates drew' surprisingly small crowds. The reporters jiave given several speculative explanations. One i.s that both men have been afound so much that they have lost 'their curiosity value. Another is j ward, and Margaret Elmyra that with radio and television, many voters don't bother to take •a personal look. A third is that neither man has much political sex appeal. And still another is that . most people have already made up their minds about how they are going to vole. .Wo don't know which of ihose reasons are correct. But if the last one is by any chance the determin- .jing one, we think it's all to the good. There is no real reason why • voters should have to sk'.e up a Truman wired Mrs. Bailey that "I i tried to convince the neutrals and the Western group they should accept a new draft he prepared after he saw Vishinsky twice last night. It was said the Western powers would not accept it at all and insisted on standing on the resolution of the six small powers now before Ihe council. Dr. Philip C. Jesseup, U. S. de puly delegate, said "no comment" to all questions. He said he was bound not to say a word. The other delegates likewise refused to talk, saying they had lo hurry to the council meeting. Bramuglia went to the Russian embassy, where Vishinsky was re want you to know that I am thinking of you in your great loss and share the sorrow which has come to you will; such sudden and crush in;>" force. Gov. Bailey was my faithful friend through many years. Whether as governor of Arkansas or in the larger field of national affairs he always placed the public interest first. . ." Earlier expressions of grief were received from Gov. Deasignate Sid McMath, former Governor J. M. Futrell, U. S. Senators John L. McClellan and J. William Fill bright, Secretary of the Treasury John S n y d e r. Congressman Brooks Hays, Arkansas Secretary of the Interior Julius Krug and many other officials and private citizens.

The proposed North Atlantic al liance has been sketched out in oufih outline in the Washinglon By JOSEPH W. GRIGG United Press Staff Corresponden Paris, Oct. 25 — (UP) —• Thirty thousand troops and security guards in full battle kit swept through 300 square miles of Northern France today and soized the nation's richest coal mines from Communist-led strikers. The government moved swiftly toward a showdown with the 350,OCO striking coal miners and sym pathy strikers who had brought France close to economic paraly sis. The seizure oi the mines, starting, with the vast enveloping swing through the Northern fields, was aimed at saying them from a .threat of ruination for lack of maintenance. Already many mines were flooded and immobilized for months. Interior Minister Jules Moch an nounccd by radio early this afternoon that the government forces had carried out the sweep over an area 30 miles by 10, extending frcjTi the DoiuiiLillc road to the Belgian border. . Moch announced that all objectives had been reached. For the first great show of force against the strikers, Moch said, the government mobilized sgronger forces than it ever used in the nationwide strikes which tied up the whole country at the end of 1947. Moch urgently appealed lo the miners not to follow "minority ag itators serving a cause which is not the cause of France." He of House sets this year. Thirty-three states will elect :overnors.

Shoe Firm to Reduce Prices St. Louis, Oct. 25 — (fP) — The In- ;ernational Shoe Company yesterday announced slight wholesale price reduclions ranging from 5 to 25 cenls per pair of men's shoes on their spring lines. Drops in wholesale prices on some women's shoes were listed at about 15 cents a pair and on children's footwear at 10 cents. A company spokesman said Ihe re- duclions were not likely to extend retail prices. Even before the ambulance took me to the hospital, I had made it clear that I did not want to be left in Soviet hands. The consuls and their aides could not have mistaken my express wishes in this regard. Yet no sooner was I installed in a room, under the protection of the police who saved me, than my erstwhile jailers, Lomakin and Chepurnykh, had the audacity ;/to appear' in the corridor outside my door and claim jurisdiction 'over me.

It would commit the United States to military involvement in the affairs of Europe more deeply than it ever before has been pledged in peacetime — although not more deeply than it actually is involved now with occupation armies stationed in Germany and Austria. The treaty is expected to embrace two major provisions deal ing with the problem of aggression —by which the Western govern nonls mean an attack by Russia. The first is that an attack upon one nation should bo considered an attack upon all. The second is .hat each government — in accord with its own constitutional processes — should -decide the appro priate action to take. That would not automatically commit the United Stales to go to war if France, for example, were attacked. But it would pledge the American government to consider the attack in the same light as though the United Stales had been alt a eked. Final decision in such a case would rest with Congress, since no treaty can lake away the exclusive right of the .Congress to declare war.
