FINE FOR: BURNS MINOR CUTS CHAFE SCRAPES MINOR WOUNDS Students at the Arkansas School for the Blind, Little Rock, again this year are helping their blind grown friends at the Adjustment Center for the Adult Blind. Before the opening of the second annual "Be Thankful You Can See" seat sale for support of the Lions Club sponsored Adjustment Center, students at the school folded and processed 200.000 sheets of stnmps for mailing, Superintendent J. W. Woolly announced. "Our youngsters," Mr. Woolly said, "seem to want to make a game or a contest of the process. They realize that every sheet of stamps they fold will make it possible for their adult fellow citizens to contribute to the training of their fellow adult blind." This is the second time students at the school have assisted in the folding and processing. Roy Kumpe, managing director of the Arkansas Enterprises for the Blind, Inc., one of the agencies operating the Adjustment Center and the seal sale, said that the first statewide drive could not have succeeded last fail hacl it not been for the help of the School for the Blind students. "We had not yet perfected an organization," Mr. Kumpe said, "and the work of the students helped us get out our seals in lime to go over our $25,000 goal. We couldn't do without them." The seal sale campaign, aimed at raising $53,000 to purchase a permanent site for Ihe adjustment center and to aid in sight cofj-:-.?- lion work by local clubs is soon sored by more- than 10!i Lions Clubs hroughout Arkansas.

Texarkana, Nov. 8 — (Pf) — Two developments indicated today that H. B. Tennison, University of Arkansas student: who enjoyed comic j magazines and crime stories, may 'not have been a "phantom" killer. Instead, it appeared possible that his suicide note implicating |himself with a wave of mysterious I unsolved -slayings in the Texar- ikana, Ark.-Tex., area in 1946, may have been a bizarre action of an unhappy young man. The tall, slender, reserved 18- year-old student from Texarkana, I Ark., took poison at Fayetteville, |Ark., Friday after spending a i week—by his own statements— in meditation in movies and his own .room. During that time, he said, he existed mostly on candy bars. One of the developments came trom Deputy Prosecutlor Robert E Hall of Miller county. He announced here that James Freeman, Ifi, told him that he spent the evening of May 3, 1940. with Tenni| sen in the lalter's home listening lo the radio. This was the night 'Virgil Starks was shot to death by 1 :m unknown assault. ! Tennison's "confession" note said he .slew Starks and two high .-'chool'students—throe of the five victims of the so-called "phan- IU.11 said Freeman fixed the •:!:te this way—he recalled hearing ''. . adie newscast about Stark's ;cl'. i;th. The prosecutor said Free'.! ;:n came to him last night after reading newspaper accounts of ' ' 'liii.son's suicide. '1 lv.- other development was dis- -e'tsed by Sheriff Bruce- Cridcr in ; Fayetteville. He said another note ' found among Tennison's effects ; :i.jueslea: "Please disregard all other messages I have written." I There were three principal notes, eacy typed in a rambling style and .worded in the nature of a final 1'iie.ssage. The sheriff said he ;didn't know which of the notes actually was written last. C'ruler and officers here awaited a report from an Austin, Tex., laboratory where Tennison's fingerprints are being checked against seme f uind on an automobile in which 'teen-agers Belly Jo Booker and Paul Martin went for their last ride. They were killed the .night of April 14. li)40. Another ! couple was slain three weeks earlier. Deputy Prosecutor Hill said Freeman related that he was a friend of Tennison and that were in Tennison's home from 1 p. ni. until midnight on In Fayelteville, Sheriff Cridur explained thai the "please clisre- t'-ii'd" note found on a dresser in Teunison's rented room, lempo- rarilv was put aside after the more Marthng message. mentioning "t'-.vn double murders" was found iu_a strongbox, also in the room.

T'his evidence Shows, -these sources said, that two cargoes including aircraft, tanks and a large number of guns now are en route from British bases in Libya to Amman, capital of Trans-Jordan. The Israeli charges were made _as informed sources predicted that I Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe jShertok will inform the United Nations that "practical difficulties" stand in the way of Israeli withdrawal from the Negev area of Southern Palestine. Shertok' is en route to Paris. His anticipated refusal of a Security Council order given Friday directing Israel- to withdraw its troops from positions won in thd recent Negev fighting was expected to be given to Dr. Ralph Bunche, acting UN mediator for Palestine. The Israeli charges against Britian also followed recent disclosures in Paris that British, American and French officials have received recent reports indicating that a secret air route from Communist Czech[ oslovakia is carrying arms to Is' rael. Israeli foreign sources spid the ; alleged new British attempts to ! strengthen the Arab armies were part of a plan to increase British influence in Cairo and Baghdad as well as other Arab capitals. Lt. Col. Moshe Perlamn, Israeli military spokesman, warned correspondents to treat "very cau- , tiously all rumors regarding Arab- I Jewish peace talks. I Informed sources said that it was true that peace feelers were exchanged between the Israeli and the Egyptians before the recent 'Negev flareup of fighting. But these discussions broke down, it (was said, when the Egyptians at| tacked Israeli convoys and heavy fighting started. There have been no negotiations since, these sources said. Settlement of Maritime Strike Looks Hopeful Sail Francisco, Nov. 8 — (JP) — A formula for reopening negotiations held promise today of quick settlement in the 67-day West Coast maritime strike. Resumuption o f negotiations awaits the rrival of national CIO representatives from Washington. Employers and strikers agreed last night on a formula which they I said they hoped not only would end | the strike but would insure water- j front peace in the future. The ! agreement called for the national IC1O to participate. ! The national CIO arjd the San Francisco employers' council would underwrite any accord nego- itiators might reach, the agreement isaid, and act as a check on future 1 disputes that might threaten strikes | or lockouts. The CIO would in ef- 1 led police its local unions and the S council its local waterfront-emplo- jer members. (The council is a i general organization covering all Daily Bread Continued From Page One contradicted the voting record of a lot of members who were up for re-election. And the history of the law's first year of operation would have made anv explanation of their change of heart sound rather lame. No. the record of this first year of administration, as opposed to the law s reputation of lump-sum terrorism, could not have justified outright repeal. Even a clam- aging record would scarcely hav called for the drastic action that the Democratic congressmen were asked to support. For in asking for outright repeal—which the Democrats might have had trouble in getting— the congressmen would have been asking, in effect, that the country's commerce and industry operate with no labor-management relations law whatsoever. Such laws are not drafted in a day. And until a new bill was formulated, or unless the strategy was to revive the Wagner Act in toto <.a move that would have been not only unwise but virtually impossible) neither labor nor 'management would have had any sort of specific legal protection in its particular field. This would have been a distinct disservice to organized labor—the very group that the President's plan was calculated to please. jbla.'iie, it is just inc." (His pa- I rents are divorced.!

High Court Reverses Decision Little Rock, Nov. 8 — VP) In a 4-3 decision, the Arkansas Supreme Court today relieved a Forrest City alienation of affections award to businessman of paying Sfj.GOU alienation of affections award to a World War II veteran. The opinion reversed and dismissed a St. Francis circuit court verdict for Roy D. Carrier against N. E. (Pete) Adams, Forrest City music and marble machine operator and beer distributor. Justices Charles C. Wine, Minor Milwee and R. W. Robins dissented to the majority opinion bv Justice J.. S. Holt. The majority opinion said testimony showed Carrier and his wife married Feb. 18, 1943, and on July 16, 1945, Carrier was granted a divorce by the Chancery c.iir.-t on the ground of desertion. Carrier at that time svas serving overseas. The opinion said he remarried May 22, 1946, and filed the suit against Adams in January 1947. Adams and Carrier's former wife were married July 29, 1947. The alienation of affections suit charged Carrier and his wife were happily married until she "became infatuated with defendant (Adms)." The supreme court said Carrier and his wife had not lived together after March 1943, when he left for overseas service. It added that according to the divorce decree Carrier's wife "had left and deserted her husband and thereby ceased to have affection for him many months prior to her first acquaintance with" Adams. It also said no weight was given Carrier's testimony that he did not charge his wife with infidelity in the divorce decree because did not wish to accuse her publicly because "when shortly after he (Carrier) was remarried ho changed his attitude and became willing to expose to the world the alleged adulterous acts of his wife, for the cash consideration expressed in his complaint." Justice Wine's dissenting opinion charged the majority with giving too much weight to the divorce decree, which he said was suggested by Carrier's wife, he said the couple was separated "for reasons beyond control" of Carrier and added "even had there been a temporary estrangement, I do not think it i's good law to say that a temporary estrangement between husband and wife gives a third party license to debauch the wife with impunity. He also said that Carrier's wii'e .went to work for Adams in Feb., 1944, and demanded a divorce from her husband in Oct., 1944, and that Adams divorced his former wife in Sept., 194S. The court also affirmed a Sebastian Circuit Court judgment holding the Employers' Casualty Company and the United States Fidelity and Guaranty Company equally liable for payment of a workman's compensation claim. The Workmen's Compensation Commission found that the claimant's injury was a progressive one and since his employer had changed insurance carriers during the, period, held the two equally liable. The circuit court and supreme court both upheld that ruling. The Jefferson Chancery court was upheld in dismissing for want of equity a suit of Rena Pruitt and others contesting refunding of a portion of the bonds of Pine Blid 1 !' Water and Sewer Extension Distri No. 2. A Polk Circuit court verdict dismissing the complaint of John R. Dunagan and John G. Bell against Harry R, Upham, was reversed and remained for new trial. The plaintiffs charged in their complaint that Upham falsely had told certain persons that Dunagan and Bell gave him a drug and robbed him of $800. The high court reversed the lower court verdict on the grounds that inadmissabk- evidence had been permitted. Also reversed because of fuultv instruction of the trial court was the Chicol Circuit court verdict for the defendant in the suit of B. C. Clark against J. H. Duncan fur rent on Chieot County farm hinds. In another reversal, the court overruled the Saline Chancery court's reformation of a deed to an UIMX- of land involved in tho cast' <>i Margaret T. Hicks versus Ruth Hankin. The court said the proof did not meet the requirements t -s- sential for reformation and ordered j a decree giving title to Margaret I Hicks. ST.
