PRICE 5c COPY Washing outgrowing the stad mm which we built only about 10 years ago. We could use a couple ol new sections added to the prc- <#• sent structure, a modern lighting system and a larger press box And the way the crowds have turned out in recent years—win Jose or draw—we could pay for all this quickly enough. A press release from the Arkansas Employment Security Division, Little Rock, advises me that charges, by Mexico that Ar- icansas planters have violated labor contracts with imported Mexican cotton pickers have been investi- . f . gated a »d found, for the most part, '."• to be unsubstantiated. State Administrator Purifoy Gill reported that Mexican pickers arc satisfied generally with housing and wages, but a few of the younger Mexicans "were homesick and wished to return to their native In any event, the state is constantly checking on the quality of treatment given the importces— and that's a good warranty for continued friendly relations between Mexico and the U.S.A But I wonder if the very fact that America has to import foreign labor for various jobs due lo the scarcity of native labor doesn't suggest continued caution on lhe part of thc Employment Security Division in every state in puttin" out "unemployment benefits" for alleged inability to find jobs. 'There is actually no genuine unemployment anywhere in America today, and it is absurd to pay out taxpayers' money to natives at a lime when America is having to import foreigners to do our own uscuil and necessary work.

They also seem uncertain how they will apportion the sums they get. j The confusion is not due to service rivalries, it' reports on the budget discussions a.re correct. Thc principal trouble is that the dclense heads do not know what sort ol a war to prepare for, or when to prepare for it. The world's war-fever chart has recently shown some sharp rises and falls. The Berlin situation grows tense, and up it goes. A new quiet days, and the fever subsides. All of this is bound to produce uncertainly in the top military circles of the western nations. But the question —and it's one that doesn't seem lo have had much public discussion—is whether the uncertainly may not be part of the Russian strategy of economic, not political, war. This is only a question, not a certainty. There is no doubt that the Soviet government has millions under arms and millions more available, or that it is working in closest secrecy lo perfect new and terrible weapons. The western countries cannot ignore lliese laclors or fail lo prepare defenses against them. At the same time it is possible that all the Russian accusations and professed fears and provocative tactics are part of a long- range Soviet plot to gain a number of Communist objectives with a minimum risk of conflict, haps Mr. Vishinsky. with screarnings, Ihumpings and apoplectic countenance, is coolly currying out a well-prepared program. Perhaps his mission lu Paris is simply to create more urmoil, with no thought of negotiation. Possibly the Russian leaders are thinking somewhat in Ibis vein: We are not in shape 1'or a long war, and the United Slates wifl not launch a "preventive" war. But the more we accuse the Americans of planning aggression the more' lhe western world will think iluu apparent today even amid the jubilation of the election triumph. Southern congressmen talked harmony but warned ominously against any attempt by the Northern wing of the party lo ram through legislation outlawing the poll tax, lynching or job discrimi nation. Vice president- elect, Albcn W. Barkley went on record with a forecast that President Truman will ask the 81st Congress in Jan uary to fulfill the Democratic campaign platform by passing those measures without delay. But Sen. Olin D. Johnston, D., S. C., an outspoken foe of the racial rights program, said "I'm still against it." The Senator, who of the first to congratu Truman when the latter late one Mr. returned to Washington yesterday, suggested that Congress let the individual states handle legislation on the poll tax and'lynching. Sen. John C. Stennis, D., Miss., said he hopes the administration press the civil rights issue. won't It was recalled , that House Speaker-designate Sam Rayburn of Texas admitted in a recent campaign speech that he is dead set against the civil rights pro gram. Since Rayburn is one of thc men Mr. Truman is counting on to smooth thc way for his legis lative program, an intraparty row seemed to be brewing. On prices, too, thc new Demo cratic majority faced a within its ranks. Barkley would probably by giving the president standby price control power. But Sen. Elmer Thomas. D.

G — (IP) —Was a University of Arkansas freshman really Texarkana's notorious "phantom killer, or was his suicide note merely a bizarre hoax? Authorities hoped to learn the answer today as they continued an investigation of the poison death of H. B. (Doodie) Tennison, 18, of Tcxarkana, Ark., For two years police of two str.tes have been unable to solve five .slayings at the state-line city. Al! slayings were attributed to a "phantom." Tennison was found dead in his room here last night. He left a signed note admitting three of the mysterious deaths. No motive was given. Sheriff Bruce Cririer said the note, found in a strongbox, read in part: "Why did I take my own life? You may be asking that question. Well, when you committed two double murders you would too. Yes. I ddi kill Betty Jo Booker and Paul Martin in the city park that night, and kill Mr. Stark and tried to get Mrs. Stark.

An unidcntfiod man was fatally wounded through the head. .Other victims were not identified immediately.

Ehrenbourg said that the Soviet Union enjovs a special "defense belt." "This defense felt," he wrote "extends not only along the borders of our country, but exists in France. China, Greece, Italy, Mexico, England—in all thc countries where our comrades live, think and struggle." Ehrenbourg asserted that Americans elected President Truman because they believed the Republicans were "more war-minded." "As for the million Americans who. in spite of evervth for (Henry A.) Wallace, they the flower of lhe. nation," the _ Pravda writer said. "Everyone of Pe r . [these advanced people of America his hears more moral authority, more influence, than hundreds of voting robots.' He said the average American--- "l-io 1 i t i c a 1 ly inexperienced" — leared a victory for Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York, the Republican candidate, and therefore_ would not vote for Wallace. "The average American feared that a vole for the new Progressive Party would insure a Dewey victory." Ehrenbourg wrote. "1 repeal, the average doesn't quite understand plex political game nf'ire because this (John Foster.) steel kin.u. isn't • king." Khrenbuurg said that the "American plunderers" were halted in their plans for world domination because the cornnioi.i people of America and Die rest of the world still remembered when "Russia ! alone t',.ughl against all the armies [of Hitler." •It Was in liiis made his reference to the "defense bell" lhe Soviet has in natons of lhe world ated almost as much of a sensation as did the slayings. Tennison's parents are divorced. His mother, Mrs. Jimmie Tennison of Texarkana, was visiting a sister in Parsons, Kas. His father, J. D. Tennison is manager of Tennison Bros.

Tax Repeal to Require Special Action Little Rock, Nov. C — (/Pi — Poll lax repeal will "require separate consideration", but Sid McMalh will ask thc 1949 legislature to set up a voter registration system. The governor-elect said in a statement issued through his office here that "repeal of the poll tax could x x x be accomplished only by another constitutional amendment." But, he added in amplifying remarks made earlier in Fayctte- ville, "if a registration law is not passed, and Congress enacts a law abolishing the poll lax, Arkansas would be led without any system of regulating voting." In Fayotteville, commenting on Constitutional Amendment No. 39, approved by the voters Tuesday, he said he would recommend a voter registration system and repeal of the poll tax. In his statement here, he added. "1 will ask the x x x legislature to consider carefully this mailer, mid, if they think abolition of lhe poll tax by .state action is wi.se, lo submit the necessary constitiution- al amendment lo the. people for their final decision."

In thc second period the Bobcats worked the ball to their own 40 where Huddleston was stopped on a fourth down thrust that was the turning point of the game. Little Rock took over and a pass and plunge, took them to the Hope 18. McVey sprinted to the 6 and on the next play Little Rock drew a 15-yard penalty which set them back to the 19. Spann threw a pass that Carter took !<fter ouljumping Britt and stepped over a yard to score. Westbrook blocked Carter's kick and Hope led 7-6, the halftime score. In the final quarter Little Rock put thc game on ice with an 83- yard touchdown march. Don oho scored from 12 yards oul on a statue of liberty play. Hope recovered three Tiger fumbles and blocked a punt but was unable lo muster the punch to carry it over. The game was hard- fought all the way and injuries to three key Bobcat starters hurt. It was a good ball game and left little doubt with fans that Little Rock had thc best team last night. The visitors outplayed thc locals most of the way. There were in thc neighborhood of 5500 fans attending. However the game only lost Hope a little prestige. The one that really counts is with Smackover there next week. Touchdowns— B.
