It trailed briefly and then took a small lead on tabulations shortly before midnight, and moved more than 2,000 votes in front later. The Arkansas Education Association, loser two years ago in an effort to initiate an act similar to this year's school district reorgan ization proposal, showed its strength in the vote on three of the initiated measures. The organization sponsored ini tuition of Act No. 1. that act would place all districts in a county, hav ins less than 350 enumerates, into a single county district, but provide time for districts, which would be p.ttected, to consolidate ,or rcor gonize. The AEA also supported Amendment No. 40, which was sub milled to thc 1947 legislature and opposed Amendment No. 41 to re move thc stale property tax from the constitution. The vote also was a setback for Governor Laney, who first locked horns with the AEA in the 1947 legislature. A compromise was reached then, and the stale properly lax abolished by Ihe legislalure. How ever, to prevent future general as semblics from reenacting it, Laney sponsored indication • thc proposed amendment to set up a constitu tional prohibition against a state property tax. When the Arkansas Legislative Council commitlce, which included some AEA members, opposed No. 41, Laney launched an allack on the proposal lo remove the school district tax limitation.

Dcwey, after conceding defeat, said today he would not consider running for a third time for the presidency. His firm answer, in response to a press conference question. was "No." Only two hours before he had conceded defeat. Ho sent this telegram -o President Truman: "My heartiest contratulations to you on your election and every good wish for a successful administration. I urge all Americans to unite behind you in support of every effort to keep our nation strong and free and establish peace in the world." By error thc telegram was dated Nov. 2. Thc first question popped at the conference was: "What happened?" "I was just as surprised as you are and I gather that is shared by everyone in this room," Dcwey said. Then he was asked whether he believed there had been an error in strategy in the conduct of his campaign. Dewey replied in the negative, and said that he had talked the situation over with his vice-presidential running mate, Gov. Earl Wan-en of California. They agreed they had waged a "clean and con- structlive campaign." He adcd: "We have no regret in the world." In response to a query as to whether he would seek a third term as governor of New York, he said: "I have no such plans." He denied a report he would resign his gubernatorial post, dis- constitutional amendments. With 1124 of 2217 precincts reported,, thc vote was: Proposed Amendment No 30 — For 70,024; against 36,730.

TODAY - THURSDAY 2:32 - 4:37 - 6:42 - 9:00 IH£ WOSI DtSK'MDO TH£ %, * vim JMS im JGU FRANCES McQEA BiCKFORD JOSEPH CAUEIA News Cartoon THE STORY Time, 1880 Place, New Orleans Louis Durand, 37, a well-to-do bachelor, has been co-responding with Miss Julia Russell, whom he has never seen. He has proposed marriage and she has accepted. According to her picture. Miss RuEsell is dark-hairod, strcng- i^atured and no longer yoimci. Durand got.-s down to the dock to meet the boat that is to br'iuj *er from St. Louis. He is dumfounded when an exquisite young blond creature introduces herself as Julia. She explains her littie deceit by saying she ciicl-n'l Want him to fall for just a pretty 'are. They are married and after a gay wedding supper, Durnnd takes his bride to the lavish new home he has built for her. V He lifted her bodily in his arms .She came clear of the ground with a litlle foamy rustle of skirt bottoms. Moving sideward so thai us shoulder might, ward off the -loose-swinging door, he carried her over the sill and in. Then dipped again and set her bach on her feel m a little froth of lacy hems. ' He stopped aside, closed the door, and bolted it. . She was looking around, standing in one plac* but moving her body in a half-circle from there, to take in everything. "Like it?" he asked. He went to a lamp, turned the hltle wheel, heightening its flame to a yellow stalagmite. Then to another, and another, wherever [hey had been left. The walls brightened from dull ivorv to purest white. The newness of everything became doubly conspicuous. 'Line it?" he beamed. Her hands were clasped. an-J elevated upward to height of her lace; held that way in a sort of stylized rhapsody. "Oh, Louis," she breathed. "It's ideal. It's exquisite." "It's yours." he said. She moved her hands out to one side oi her face now. still clasped, and nestled her check against them slantwise. Then across to tic other side, and repealed it there. "Oh. Louis" was all she seeme'l capable of saying. "Oh. Louis." -Ihey moved around then on a brief tour, from room to room, and he showed her the parlor, the dining room, the other.-,. And for each r«oin she had an expiring "Oh, Louis." until at last, it seemed breath had left her altogether, and she could only sigh "Oh." | They came back to the hall at i fast, and he said tomewhat dif| lidcntly that lie would lock up. ! "Will you be able to find our i room?" lie added, as she tun.cd I toward Ihe .stairs 1 . "Or shall I | come up with you?" ! She dropped her eves' fur a j moment before his. "1 think 1 | shall know it." she said chastely. | He placed one of the smaller i lamps in her hands. "Better take j this with you to make sure. She (probably left lights up there, but I she i:i:iv jiol have." With the light brought close to her like that, raying upward into her face from the glowing core held at .about the height of hoi- heart, there was to him something madonna-like about her countenance. She was like some irrepressibly beautiful image in an old cathedral of Europe come to life before the eyes of a single devotee, rewarded for his faith A miracle of love. She rose a step. She rose another. An angel leaving the earthly plane, but turned backward in regretful farewell. "Goodby for a lillle while," he murmured soflly. "For a lillle while," she breathed. Then she turned. The spell was broken. She was just a woman in an evening gown, going up a stair. Thc graceful back-draperies of the most beautiful costume-style in a hundred years gently i.m- dulaled with her climb. Her free hand trailed the banister. "Keep an eye out for the wallpaper," he said. "That will tell you." • She turned inquiringly, with a look of incomprehension. "How's that?" "I meant, you'll know it by the wallpaper, when you come to it." "Oh," she said docilely, but as though she still didn't fully understand. She reached thc top of the stairs and went aver their lip, shrinking down toward the floor now as she went on, until her shoulders, then her head, were gone. The ceiling-halo cast by her lamp receded past his ken, down that same illusory incline. He went in to the parlor, first, and then the other downstairs rooms, latching each window that had not already been latched trying those that had, flinging out the drapes and drawing them sleekly together over each one. Then at last blotting out each welcoming lamp, room by room. The last lamp of all went out, and he moved slowly up the ghost- stairs in the dark, that was already a familiar dark to him though he'd been in this house less than half an hour. He found his way toward their own door, in the equal darkness of the upper hall, but guided now by the thread of light stretched taut across its sill. He stopped a moment, and he stood there. Then he knocked, in a sort o! playlul formality. | She must have sensed his mood. j by the tc-iior of the knock alone. 'There was an aiit-wering playful note in her own voice. "Who knocks?" she inquired I with mock gravity. "Your husband " "Oh? What does he say?" " 'May I come in?' " I "Tell him he may." • "Who is it invites me to?" I ^ The answer was almhost inau- I dibit-, but line-voiced as it was, it i reached his heart. ' "Yuur wife." i i'i'o LV ColitalUedt Sen.

He said he had no immedite plans "beyond today." "I am going back to Albany and get some sleep for a change," he said. "As for political plans, I have no plans," he said. The conference was held in thc same mezzanine room in thc hotel fRooseveU .where four years ago he conceded defeat to Franklin D. Roosevelt. A newman asked, "Do you think it is essential that we continue the bi-partisan foreign policy?" : Dcwey said he thought it was "most essential that we do." "The past week-end." Dewey added, "was one of the blackest in the recent history of the world." He did not amplify this. On the future of the Republican party, he said "a difference of one- half per cent in three or four states would have made a different result, so I think that leaves the question wide open." Asked his opinion of the future of the Progressive party, he laughed and said, "not much." Dear Miss Dix: After reading the problem -about rniddleaged husbands having affairs with young nil 1 !.--. I am moved to tell you how I solved it. My husband, who IK well past ill), was having an affair with a young waitress and 1 found on!, about 1!. I didn't reproach him. cry over | it nor make any fuss. Instead | I would say to my'luisband: "Lot's go oat. tonight at (he restaurant where your Girl Friend works. She is so pretty and young I like to look at her." Or if. we had company at home and I couldn't st"p out. I'd say to the others: "Be sure to go (o thc restaurant where Miss So-and-So works. She is my husband's Girl Friend and is EO nice and attractive." And so on and so on. 1 simply fed him up with flattery ot this girl, and I guess at last it soured on his stomach. Anyway, it cured him and everything is fine with us now. L. L. Answer: Thanks for the recipe for curing an old man's flirtatiousness. I am sure it will prove efficacious in almost every case, for elderly men's attacks of romance are-seldom fatal. At about his age Grandpa is apt. to have a little touch of wanderlust and think he would like to step out with some girl young enough to.be his granddaughter, but nothing serious happens if Grandma is smart enough to throw roses instead of brickbats at the affair. Sense of Humor Needed The trouble with elderly wives is that they lack a sense of humor. They think their husbands should act their age. So when they see their rheumatic Johns capering around like kids, they take 'it seriously and dissolve'in tears and reproaches—which is a fatal mistake, for it causes Grandpa to feel devilish and that he must be a wow among thc girls. He even gets a kick out of knowing ho makes Grandma iealous. But the real play would be for Grandma to just laught it off and say that Grandpa always was a lady-killer, and to invite the little gold-digger to a parly. Dear Dorothy Dix: Is it possible to be in love with three men at once? I seem to be in just that preu^r.mcnt. One man is a soldier, one is a jack-of-all trades and the last is a prize- fighter. I seem to love all three of thorn. Please tell me what to do. I seem to be all mixed up. R. H. C. Answer: I should think you would feel like a custard pie. fill mixed up in three romances. Not being acquainted with any of the fascinating gentlemen with whom you are in near-love, I cannot help you much about your choice: but it. seems to roc that each of them has his points. The soldier is always attractive to women because brass buttons certainly do something to a m?.n that make him almost hypnotic and irresistible to a girl, so that's that. The jack-of-all-trades would fill a long-felt want in every wife's life, for it would be fine to have a husband who could fix the plumbing and repair the leaks in the roof and hang pictures and do all the thousand odd jobs that most wives have to nag their husbands into doing. As to the prize fighter. I am a little dubious. He might be too handy with his fists when the dinner was mean and thc bills too high. But you never can tell how a man is going to turn out as a husband. You simply have to pay your money and take your choice. Dear Dorofhy Dix: Is it true that the reason that most of the marriages that turn into divorces or failures is because most of the couples arc failures before marriage? CURIOUS Answer: Probably. For thc thing that makes a marriage a failure or success is the kind of people who marry. An man or woman of intelligence, good principles and self-control will make a success of marriage. It is the selfish and neurotic people who fill the divorce courts. (Released by Thc Bell Syndicate. Inc.) Looks at Progress Chalk. England — i/n— The Rev. A. W. W.
