Washburn-™ — Hope's Special Census Isn't Acceptable Yesterday's preliminary report from the Census Bureau indicated that the special census just completed for the City of Hope will 5 give us a population of 8,594 — an J»V unsatisfactory and damaging conclusion regarding the growth and economic health of our community. Speaking from past regular census figures and direct observation of economic events here since 1940 this writer believes the new nine-year census should have run ahead — not behind — the 10-year average gain shown by previous ; census reports. These arc the factors on which I base this criticism: The rise in newspaper circula- . tion between 1939 and 1948, even * alter allowing for an inflationary money condition (which changes the national newspaper circulation average only a few percentage points), would indicate that if Hope had 7,475 on the officials census WEATHER FORECAST Arkansas: Considerable cloudiness, occasional min tins afto>'- noon. tonight, in <:asl portion Saturday.

The State Health iojo, 6 Other Jap Leaders to Pay Full Penalty By RUSSELL BRINES Tokyo, Nov. 12 — (JP)— Deaath on the gallows was decreed today for Hideki Tojo. the cold, calculating Japanese who led his country to ruin in the 'world's bloodiest war. Death was also decreed for six of his 24 top leaders. Life imprisonment was meted out to 10 others, including the Marquis Kochi Kido, close adviser to the emperor. A seventeenth, Shigcnori Togo, foreign minister at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack, drew' 20 Japs Sentenced years in prison. Aging, peg -legged Namoru recently estimated Hope's population at approximately 11,000. The War Department's seizure in 1941 of 50,000 acres for the Southwestern Proving Ground military reservation dislocated more than 3,000 farm persons, some of whom moved to Hope; and the same 1941 activity attracted other people here. There was a record shortage of housing, and in the years following 1941 you and I have seen vacant areas through- i~> out the residential districts gradually fill up with new residences. Moreover, The Star's constant urging that adjacent territories be annexed to the city to fortify Disposition for the regular census of 1950 has caused a number of extensions in the city limits. I believe most of the available annexations have been made now, except for the still-pending proposal to take in houses along State Highway 29 North beyond the radio station. What arc the facts about the _j V current special census report? Well, the record of regular censuses shows that Hope went from 4,790 in 1920 to G.008 in 1930— a gain of 1,218 persons, approximately 25 per cent. In 1940 the census gave us 7,475 — a gain of 1,467, approximately 25 per cent also. Now the 1940 census was actually made in 1939, so that the 1948 special census represents an interval of nine years — nearly a full decade. But the special census comes up with a total of only 8,594 — a gain in nine years of only 1,110, or 15 per cent. The fact is, this special census is attempting to tell us that despite the greatest economic activity in our history, despite all known indices of growth, and despite a general extension of the city's geographical limits — Hope gained fewer people (regardless of percentage points) than in any other recent census period. As a matter of fact, the import of this special census — if you were to believe it — is that Hope's central population, excluding annexed territories, either stood still or showed a slight loss. I don't believe it, and you don't either. Bringing in such a report on our city is no asset for either the city government or its citizens and commerce collectively. And what little additional revenue migh Shigemitsu the statesman who hobbled aboard the Battleship Missouri to sign the surrender terms in Tokyo Bay, got seven years imprisonment. An 11-nation court convicted all 25 defendants of war crimes. It sat for more than two and a half years. It took only 21 minutes to read the sentences. Sir William Webb of Australia, president of the court, pronounced the sentences in a deathly silent and packed courtroom. Each man filed in separately and stood in an otherwise empty prisoner's dock to hear his sentence. Each attempted to subdue emotion, but varied reactions were noticeable. Tojo took his death sentence with wan smile. He bowed politely to ho court as did most of the other men. Seventy-four year old Gen. Jiro Vlinami. former war minister, Pernod befuddled and surprised vith his sentence of life imprisonment. Gen. Hiroshi Oshinma, former ambassador to Germany, stood arrogantly as he was scn- enced to life and stalked away vithout the polite bbw. Japanese greeted'the sentences n varied ways. Some said they bought more would be hanged and others said they were sorry "or the defendants. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Allied occupation commander, set Nov. 19 as the deadline for petitions in behalf of the defendants to be submitted to him as reviewing of- 'icer of the tribunal's decision. No date for the carrying out of :he sentences was set. A close guard was placed on all of the Japanese for fear some might try to take their own lives.

But there were a few anxious days for those who wondered whether it could withstand the heat of domes- 4th Round of Wage Boosts Predicted Washington, Nov. 12 — (IP) Predictions of a fourth and final— round oC postwar wage boosts came today from an administration of- 'ficial weighing prospects for labor peace during the new Truman term. The policy shaper, who asked not to bo quoted by name, said he looks for the pay increases to average between seven and ton cents an hour. But he qualified his final round forecast by pegging it to another— that living costs are about to leve" off. ...... , , i If they do, he told a reporter tic politics. These came when each tutlu . c c t lk m hia major candidate tried briefly to tried take personal and party credit for inaugurating a policy supposed to i, be beyond the realm of party politics. Governor Dewey said he was the inventor of the bi-partisan policy. President Truman countered by labeling him a belated convert to internationalism. There is evidence which indicates that both gentlemen tended to exaggerate their claims. An impersonal attempt to mark the starting point of political unity in foreign affairs would probably have to go back to the late Wendell Willkie. His support of lend-lcase * and other prewar measures advanced by the Roosevelt administration to aid the Allies makes him the logical contender for the title claimed by Mr. Dewey. On the other hand, there Mr. Dewey's refusal, in the 11)44 campaign, to cash in on a political natural that might have meant a , cos.tly delay in defeating Japan. He agreed not to reveal Ihe fact that the American government, headed by his opponent for the presidency, had broken the Japanese code before Pearl Harbor after General Marshall had told him that the Japs were still usiny the code. Perhaps that wasn't an example of bi-partisan policy as defined today. But at least it showed a willingness to pass up a tempting political advantage in order to preserve the 1944 bi-partisan policy of winning the war. At any rate, these charges and counter-charges were not followed up to a point where they could have- damaged American unity at a lime when unity is needed. And it is | to the credit oi both candidates that they slopped where and when they did. Neither of them, to be sure, was standing on ground that supported his claims very solidly. But public temper being what it is in an election year, they might have kept their footing for quite a while. What may have been at the Continued on page two wage phasis from prices to productivity His contention is that only by boost ing output can workers be sure o: pushing their earnings upward once their pay has caught up with prices. Since the war, wages have gone up three times, by roughly 13 anc 11 cents an hour, with some fourth round increases of around 9 1-2 cents. These last, however, hay not yet spread to the big. basic industries like steel and auto-mak ing. The administration labor officia said preliminary plans being readied for President Truman' study call for a "reasonable com promise" on labor legislation an a greatly strengthened labor de partmcnt. On the issue of what to do wit the Taft-Hartlcy act—which the Democrats are pledged to repeal and replace—the official marked down two provisions as the toughest to remove. He listed them as (A) the provision dealing with national emergency strikes—such as industry- paraly/.ing coal mine shutdowns—and (B) the requirement that labor leaders disavow Communist affili- Paris. Nov. 12. —(UP> — Secrc- ary of State George C. Marshall enied flatly today that the Jnited States is considering send- ng any peace mission to Moscow.

Nanking, Nov. 12 —(/D—-Savage Nationalists attacks reportedly routed nine Red columns at the Grand Canal today in the mammoth Suchow battle. The Communists, pro-government newspapers said, withdrew in disorder, leaving 37,000 dead and wounded. They' had tried to sneak 145,000 Tsinan veterans across the canal for an attack on Suchow's left flank, 30 miles east of the government bastion. (The Communist radio heard in Peiping, said the Reds were annihilating the Seventh National Army Corps east of Suchow and had cooped up the Second Army Corps west of the town. The Red radio said two national divisions went over to the Communists on Monday North of Suchow).

Fight It Out for Title It looks like a dreary night for football but despite the weather carload after carload of Hope fans will make the journey to Smackover to see the Bobcats and Buckaroos battle it out for the championship of District 7-AA and a chance in the state playoff. A victory for the Bobcats would give them undisputed possession of the District crown with a record of 3 wins against no losses. Smackover has suffered a single loss and boasts 2 victories. Tonight's winner probably will meet Van Buren next weekend in the- first playoff game for the State AA crown. The winner of the playoff contest will take on the winner of the Blythcvillc-Russcll- yille game a week after Thanksgiving. So both teams will be shooting the works and the game probably will be decided on breaks due to rain and a muddy field. Smackover operates from a tricky "T" that is hard to stop. The Bucks were bounced by Texarkana in a close contest but came back strong to wallop Camclen and Nashville, mighty good teams in anybody's league. Hope downed Tcxnrkana 55 to 7 and Camdcn also by a lopsided score. But Smackover appears to be getting stronger all the time and will be going up against an ailing Hope eleven. Several Bobcats are recovering from injuries. However, most of the injured will see action but are not expected to be at top speed, which has been the key to Hope's offense all season. From any angle the game will be a battle from start to finish.

"It is certainly true here as well as at home," Marshall said. Best Safecrackers in the Business Luckily Aren't ii Business for Themselves Europe Union Plans Secret Defense Meet London, Nov. 12 —(/P)— The five nations of the western European union began talk in a highly secret meeting today on a proposed North Atlantic defense treaty with the United States and Canada. A French foreign office spokesman in Paris said France is proposing a 50-year agreement binding the U. S. and Canada to the alliance. There was neither confirmation nor denial here. The nations in the western alliance arc Britain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg. Louis S. St. Laurent, who becomes Canadian prime minister Monday, called last night for a North Atlantic security treaty to include both economic and military cooperation. Top western diplomats in' Washington! amy try to decide next week whether to expand the proposed alliance to Italy, Portugal, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Ireland, a Washington dispatch said. The United States is expected to be asked to pay for rearming the alliance. An informed diplomatic source said the live members of the alliance will .start a draft today of GOP Demands Special Aid to China Washington, Nov. 12 — (UP) — Some Republicans arc considering a demand for a special aid-to-China session of .Congress to put President Truman on the spot on that issue, it was learned today. These legislaors believe the administration is doing far too little for Chiang Kai-shek's hard-pressed Nationalist government. They feel that an immediate congressional appropriation for arms and ammunition is necessary to halt Communist advances in the Far East. These ' congressmen want Mr. Truman to extend to China the "quarantine Communism" program now in effect in Greece and Turkey. Under that program, the two Mediterranean countries have been getting military air and advice from the United States. GOP advocates of a special session of Congress point out that the $125,000,000 granted China for military equipment is just about gone. They fear it may be 'too late to do anything for Chiang when the regular session gets into full swing. Though Congress convenes Jan. 3, the first weeks will-be spent in reorganizing rather than in legislat- Moincs, Iowa, for a speech. The Republican senator is chairman of the special "watch dog congressional committee" on foreign aid. The group was set up to keep check on the multi-billion dollar expenditures of this counhy for foreign aid both in Europe and the Far East. Bridges said he fears that unless American aid is made effective immediately the Communists will take "over the whole of China lock, stock and barrel." A special session Congress, ho said, would allow the administration "to place the real facts before Congress and the American public" regarding the Chinev: sitr nation. He said Congress should Iv able to take any speedy action necessary on the basis of such facts. Bridges said, "those Communist forces now spreading over all df North China are no simple group of indignant patriots," but are controlled from the Kremlin in Moscow, and arc part of the world wide Communist movement. Unless effective American aid is ' made available, Bridgcr said, the Communists may even sweep into control of Nanking and Shanghai, Bridges said the Chinese Communists now arc "gnawing out'the.,-, vitals of our friend and ally, China." He added: "Even ,the U. S.

The legislators can be called into special session either by the president or by the Republican high command. It is not likely, however, that Mr. Truman would recall a GOP Congress when two months hence he will have a Democratic House and Senate to work with. Thus any special session move would be up to Senate President Arthur H. Vandenborg, House Speaker Joseph W. Martin, Jr., acting Senate Leader Keanneth S. Wherry and his House counterpart Charles A.
