"\ Our Daily rea Sliced Thin by The Editor ——Alex. H. Washburii * South's Need Is f ; Financial, Not Legal Notes on a New Film The argument which National Democratic Chairman J. Howard K»-./IcGrath seems to be trying to perpetuate with his threat in Washington yesterday to bar States' Rights leaders from the party strikes this writer as completely futile. When a youngster in Pennsylvania I used to read big black political advertisements in the Wilkcs-Barre Record signed by the Republican State Committee warning Progressive Republicans (who had been defeated in the primary by the Philadelphia-Pittsburgh •;yAxis of Boise Penrose) that if they ' bolted the party for the Democratic ticket in the general election "they would never again vote in a Republican party." Nobody paid any attention to such warnings, however — and McGrath won't have any better luck with the States' Righters today. For the power simply doesn't exist in a democracy to successfully purge a party. There was a difference of opinion this month between all the South and the national Democratic party f> —and parts of the South went so far as to carry its belief into the polling places, costing the Truman ticket the electoral vote of four slates. But this is not unusual in American politics—and time alone will tell who is right, as between McGrath and the South. From our point of view what the South needs is more industry, a greater, share of U. S. business, increased prosperity — what it, doesn't need is more law. If you give the South enough prosperity all problems will be resolved. But '» legal lectures are a dime a dozen —no bargain in the South any.more than they are in the North.

Suchow and Penpu were reported virtually isolated by Communists. The Yangtze was feared open to a Red crossing that would expose Nanking. Food riots and strikes flared in Nankow, Shanghai nd Nanking. Mobs roamed the streets. People were trampled to death or injured. Police fired on the rioters here and in Hankow, where a large rice shop was set afire. The Pciping-Tientsin corridor to Taku, Gulf of Chihli port, was jittery. The American military advisory group withdrew all its person nel from Peiping. The air exodus of America got underway on an emergency basis from Nanking. The sea evacuation began at Shanghai. Expectant mothers were the first flown out. Then followed the wives with children of U. S. military advisers. All were flown to Tsingtao. American Naval base. At least 500 were to be put aboard the hospital ship repose by Friday night. From Shanghai the U. S. Army Transport General Collins sailed 150 dependents.

The mill and elevator belonged to the Northern Rice Milling Company, whose co-owner, Harry W. Cromicr, Jonesboro, estimated the loss at $250,000 to $350,000 and blamed the fire on a defective elec trical system. Eight members of the mill's night crew were on duly when the flames were discovered at 2 a. m. None was injured. The' fire had made considerable headway before the Jonesboro fire department reached the scene. Cormier said about 60,000 bushels of rice valued at $140,000 were stored in the elevator.

But it is one of the all-time great pictures, and should win the Academy Award either for itself or Jane Wyman. the feminine lead. The astounding fact about the film is that Warner Brothers took Jane Wyman, a light comedy star, and turned her into one of the finest dramatic roles of a decade —a .deaf-mute who holds you spellbound with her eyes for an hour and a half. "Johnny Belinda" is the best of its sort since "Stella Dallas" and "Dark Victory"—and I rate it better than cither of those classics. Lew Ayres scores also in the vole of the country doctor.

When military personnel will leave — if they leave at all — has not been made public. Railroad, tram and waterworks employes -demanded their wages in rice, disdaining the rapidly sinking gold yuan currency. They stopped work when they got no rice. Some returned to their jobs later when a small amount was made available. In a desperate attempt to stabilize the economic situation, the executive Yuan (legislature) authorized the sale of the China Textile Corporation — largest state owned textile plant .in China. Regulations for the scale of American aid cotton on the open market in exchange for foodstuff were passed, also.

Yet 1( there are many economists who view it skeptically. Some of them merely say that it doesn't always operate as advertised. Others insist that it's a very inaccurate instrument for figuring markets and prices, and thai il is depended on loo much at the expense of more accurate gauges. Being strictly amateur, we shan't altempl to argue with the professional economists. But we would like lo cite a couple of examples which seem to indicate that the law of s. and d. remains in busi- thc old stand, itesl of Ihe annual Collier's magazine surveys of the automobile and tire market has some welcome news on the tire industry. It shows that the production of passenger car tires caught up with the demand early this summer, although there was an immediate need of 33,000,000 replacement tires two years ago, and 13.500,000 last year. What's more, the prices of tires today is within 10 per cent of what it was before the war. As for automobiles. Ihe survey tells a story that is painfully familiar—a backlog of some 11.000,00" car orders, which is about equal to two years' production, and prices up around 100 per cent from prewar. This contrasting picture can be explained easily, and we think accurately, by supply arjd demand. The tire industry increased its production capacity 30 per cent in the war years, and used the new capacity "to turn out tires. When the war ended it was still there to help satisfy a pent-up civilian need. In two demand \vas_ were down. In the aulo industry then; was less wartime expansion, an£ most. . of this was for the production of other items than automobiles. Peace brought a big reconversion problem. In addition there was a shortage of stool. In the men's clothing field, according to S. Burton Heath of NKA Service. high pi-ices uf other 'things have helped bring down the price of men's .--.lilts.

The 58-nation political committee also called on the three Balkan nations to settle their differences with Greece. By a vote of 48 to six, the com mittec approved a detailed resolution on the Greek issue submitted by China, France, Britain and the United States. Russia and her bloc voted against the resolution. Representative of four nations were ab sent or not voting. The committee previously had approved sections of the resolution, one paragraph at a time. Among other developments of he day: (1) Soviet Russia proposed that he security council order negotiations between Arabs and Jews to establish peace in Palestine. This .vas submitted as an amendment to plan presented by the acting mediator, Dr. Ralph J. Bunche to convert the uneasy truce into an armistice. - . - , (2> The United Nations Social committee wrote a provision for "freedom of thought, conscience and religion" into a draft declaration on human rights. The Russians :iad vainly proposed limiting the provision to a guarantee of freedom of thought. (3) Foreign Minister Juan A. Bramulglia of Argentina, November chairman of the security council, said no decision has been made over when the Berlin crisis will come up again. The Western Powers have accused Russia of endangering peace by blockading Berlin. Russia vetoed a compromise plan to settle the issue, which remains on the agenda. Ales Bebler, the Yugoslav who was most vocal against the U. N. resolution in Greece, told reporters the United States hac blocked attempts to conciliate the Greek-Balkan dispute. Ho asserted preliminary talks were held toward a meeting in the Compromise Is Sought on Racial ts Washington, Nov. 10 — (UP) — Some Soutlhern senators ai-e willing to drop plans for a civil rights filibuster if President Truman will compromise on his sweeping racial rights program, it was learned today. A possible compromise being discussed by these Southern Democrats would call for Mr. Truman to oft-pedal demands for Fair Em- Dloyment Practice Commission egislation. The Dixie senators, in turn, would agree not to filibuster against artti-poll tax and anli- .ynching bills. Those measures are considered certain to pass the House. There is sufficient support in the Senate, too, but Southern States' Righters can put on a talk athon there and keep them from a final vote." All three measures were pledged in the Democratic platform, and have been advocated repeatedly by President Truman. It was his strong civil rights stand that led to formation of the splinter States' Rights Democratic party. The compromise movement is only starting and is far from being assured of success. One Southern senator who preferred that his name not be used said he was encouraged by the reception given by both to a possible compromise.

Jcnes, 73-year-old Tupelo farmer, today faced 15 years in the state penitentiary following his convic lion on first degree murder charges in Jackson County Circuit court here, yesterday. Jones was charged with the shot gun slaying last Oct. 30 of his neighbor, Marvin Cossey, while Cossoy was seated on a toam-driv en mowing machine on his farm three miles east of Tupelo. The shooting climaxed an argument over the grazing of livestock in Jones' field. The jury deliberated two hours. Prosecuting Attorney Millard Hardin had asked death or life im prisonment for Jones. A plea of excusable homicide on grounds of temporary insanity was entered by the defense. But one Northern Democrat was cool to it. He felt that Mr. Truman had a good chance to push through his entire civil rights program while still riding an election victory tide. This Democrat said it might be the time to chanigc Senate rule lo limit filibusters and then to settle the civil rights fight for good. Pie- publicans had planned, if they had retained control of the Senate, to change the filibuster rule to gag the Southerners. Southerners indicated they would filibuster to the bitter end if compromise efforts fail and adminis- ration forces try to enact presi- Continued on page two Auxiliary's Poppy Day Saturday took an active part in plans lead- Pearl Harbor attack, the nternalional tribunal held today. This fact, plus the finding of the court that a charge of "conspiracy to wage aggressive wars" had oeen proved against Japanese war loaders, led to belief among attorneys that all 25 defendants would be convicted.

This year Junior girls will sell the poppies with headquarters at Hope Furniture Co. They will start selling at 8 a.m. Saturday. The public is reminded that the poppies are made by veterans who are unable to do any other work. Materials are furnished by the Auxiliary which pays the veteran for each poppy he makes. Only poppies made by disabled veterans are sold by the Auxiliary. Not only does it enable the disabled to earn money, in many instances to help his family, but the work is valuable as occupational therapy. When you buy a poppy it is helping a veteran who still is enduring the horrible side of war. A formal initiation of the new members of the Hope Chapter of FHA was held in the high school auditorium this week to climax the celebration of national FHA week. Thirty-two candidates received membership in the local organization at the caudle light service, presided over by chapter president. Mary Anita Laseler. The local chapter began the week by attending the Sunday morning I church service in a body at the .-lope Gospel Tabernacle, where the Reverend Paul Holdridge delivered a message on FHA work and home-makers. During FHA week a red rose, the emblem of the organization, was presented to James H. Jones, superintendent of Hope- Public Schools; A. J. Herndon, high school principal; and Mrs. Hamilton Hannegan, club sponsor. Chapter members also planted a red rose bush in the home eco- Bpmies cottage yard. On November 4 1 ihe local organization .presented a radio program over KXAR depicting the history of FHA. Those appearing on this broadcast were Mary Anita Laseter, Mary Ellen Downs, Peggy Pentecost, Nealia Frances Mullin, Joretta Sims, Sue Garrctt, Viva Eclcl Thrash, Ted Jones, Jamie Russell and McLcod. Proof of the worldwide appeal of Chic Young's famous comic strip, "Blondie." was supplied this week when congratulations poured in to the artist from two continents in connection with his winning ot the Banshees' "Lady" as the outstanding cartoonist of the year. Young, who has drawn the strip for more than eighteen years, and now sees his handiwork reproduced in more than 1200 daily and Sunday newspapers all over the world, was honored in New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel by more than six hundred editors, writers, publishers and other well known pen-oils attending the Banshee luncheon.
