Hunt Slayer of Colorado State Co-ed near Boulder, Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor --—'Alex. H. Washburn——Slick Highway Ditched Cars Good Luck, Armitage News story on today's page one tells of wholesale automobile; accidents on U.S. G7 between Hop=> and Texarkana. ,. Fortunately no one was hurt, but * the fact that one accident involved a school bus, struck by i car that had skidded on mud-^ovored pi've- ment, should further emphasize the blunder that the State Highway Department has made for two consecutive years in attempting to grade up the highway shoulders just before the start of the rainy season. Every time you read about an accident on U.S. 67 due to muddy sul ,- u UIU ulaa bhouldcrs make it a point to call co-ed in the b the highway department's attention be connected. >,<} We arc going to get a lot of people killed on U.S. 07, many oi them innocent out-of-state tourists llall ^u-uuu, unfamiliar with what's going on in student at Arkansas, unless the State Highway of Boulder Department forbids the grading of dirt shoulders—until such a time as the department is prepared to replace the shoulder with asphalt instead of dangerous wet dirt. News story in yesterday's paper reported the gift of a wrist-watch by Hope Chamber of Commerce to ,. its departing secretary-manager, • ' Charles A. Armitage, the ceremony taking place at the Rotary club luncheon. The Star wishes to express the community's thanks to Mr. Armitage for a most successful Chamber of Commerce administration, nnd to wish him all good fodur.o. as ho enters business for himself in neighboring Magnolia. * * * Labor Chiefs, Nursing Third Party Ideas, Face Tough Job *•.;' By JAMES THRASHER Shortly before the election President William Green of the American Federation of Labor was quoted by reporters, directly and at length, on the AFL plans for "definitely" doing something about starting a third party at its national convention this month. A few days later Mr. Green said he had been "misinterpreted," that the third party report was "misleading," and that he would personally oppose such a move. • •' We don't know whether all those words attributed to Mr. Green and enclosed in quotation marks were a reporter's pipe dream, or whether the AFL president had a change of heart. But. whatever the explanation, we believe the decision to lorego a labor third party is wise. ' The most successful third parties pf recent memory—the Progressives of 1941 and-1924 —were built around two popuali- and dynamic figures, ex-President Theodore -„. Roosevelt and Sen. Robert M. La v FoHette. Yet neither of them survived its one national defeat. The "progressive" party of Henry Wallace shows even lewer symptoms of survival than its like-named predecessors. As for the other hopeless third- party perennials, they appeal to smaller groups with like views on government, economics, or modes of behavior —the Socialists, Communists, Prohibitionists, Vegetarians, Greenback Party, etc. Any national labor party now g^ would, have trouble in agreeing on a commanding popular leader— which a serious third-party movement in this country seems to require—and it would be starting out by appealing to one special group —a method which has never pro duced enough votes to encourage supporters or to worry the opposition. There is nothing in our past history to indicate that a party appealing to only one social or economic division of the population can come close to swinging a •'*' national election by itself. In spite ' of the talk we have heard recently about this or that party being the party of special interest, it just isn't so. Both the Democratic and Republican Parties have their share of industrialists and financiers, big and little businessmen, union members, white collar workers and farmers. And while there are many party regulars among them whose allegiance never varies, our elections are decided by voters whose t minds are free and flexible, however fixed their economic status may be. If our political history promised Mr. Green some difficulties, he would probably have found others peculiar to his own situation. The CIO and AFL have never been able to join forces. John L. Lewis and his miners have broken away from both groups. There are other large unions, like the railroad brotherhoods, independent of both the major labor organizations. A big reason for this lack of * ' labor unity is the unwillingness of many union executives to yield or share the power they now hold. A full-dress excursion of these executives into national politics would probably intensify the struggle for power. This is particularly likely since Walter Reuther of the CIO has expressed some third-party intentions of his own. Mr. Green has seemed hopeful that opposition to the Taft-Harlley Law would provide the motive power for unifying labor. That law » has served Mr. Green and others as an effective bogyman in the past year. But we hardly think it will scare the majority of union members into a new politic*l movement.

PRICE ScCOP^" Boulder, Colo., Nov. 13 (UP) — The police spotlight swung to Amarillo, Tex., today in the search for the sex slayer of co-ed Theresa Foster, while police here investigated the disappearance of another co-ed in the belief the cases might i connected. The Missing Persons Bureau in Denver followed slim clues in the disappearance of 17-year-old Lillian Bebell, Colorado State College student at Greelcy, 40 miles east if Boulder, Mr. and Mrs. John Debcll reported their daughter's disappearance to police after Miss Foster, 18-year-old University of Colorado freshman, was abducted and murdered here Tuesday. Miss Debell disappeared Nov. 1. Her roommate found this note: "I may be walking into a trap, but I think I know what I am doing. If anything should happen o me try and console my parents." The roommate said the girl took a traveling bag with her, but appeared neither morose nor excited. Sheriff Arthur Everson said that Amarillo police hold for question- ng two unidentified men. Everson said they would be held until their car has been checked for possible :lues to the brutal murder of Miss Foster. Amarillo police said the car had Wyoming license plates. The men told police they were en route :rom California to Texas. Miss Foster was believed to have seen killed in a secluded spot. Smackover Buckaroos Knock Hope Out of Title Running With 14-0 Win in the Mud Hope's state championship dream folded last night -at Smackover when the BucKaroos defied mud and rain and fog to whip the locals 14 to 0. The defeat, first for the Bobcats in District Seven AA play, knocked them out of a shot at the district playoffs. Instead, it will be Smackover who represents southwest Arkansas in the first playoff game, with Van Buren, next week. Last night's district title contest left Smackover with a district record of three wins (Fordyce, Camden, Hope) against one defeat (Texarkana). Hope has beaten Texarkana and Camden, losing only to Smackover within the district — although the locals dropped a 12-7 decision to Little R6ck a week ago. All of last night's scoring was in the second quarter. James Specrs made Smackover's first tally on a dash to goal from the Hope 28. The extra point was good, and the score stood: Smackover 7; Hope 0. A few minutes later Smackover launched a sustained drive starting from the Hope 39, down to the 1-yard-marker, where Claude Thomas went over—and Srhackover led the locals 14 to 0. That was all there was to it, except for one great threat by the Bobcats. In the closing minutes of the first half Russell, of Hope, recovered a Smackover fumble on the Smackover 37. Button took the ball to the 28. Britt advanced to the 25 for a first down. A penalty made it Hope's ball on the Smackover 15. Sutton threw a pass which missed. But a second aerial connected with Nix for a first down on the Smackover 5. Sutton took the ball to the and _ then _ put into 3 _ and therc the half-time whistle an autlomobile trunk and carried to the lonely ravine South of town where her body was found two days later. Everson said that a call had been sent to all law enforcement agencies between Chicago and the West Coast in an effort to find the murder car. One of the most reccent tips was given the sheriff by Gerald Kuntz 40, of Boulder. Kuntz said that his young daughter and some friends las seen Theresa and a man cave the college church Tuesday. [t had been thought the murdered girl left the Newman Club meeting alone to walk back to her boarding house. UN Calls on Big Four for Berlin Pact Paris, Nov. 13 — (IP) — The president of the United Nations assembly and the U. N. secretary-general made an urgent personal appeal today to the chief executives of the United States, Russia, Britain and France to settle the Berlin dispute at once. Dr. Herbert V. Evatt, Australian foreign minister, who is president of this assembly session, and Trygve Lie, the secretary-general, ofiered their good offices to the four big powers in efforts to solve the dispute. Their action was without precedent in the U. N. . The two involved the recent Mexican resolution, approved unanimously by the assembly, which cut short Hope's only scoring threat.

Wildcats fumbled seven times on the muddy field at, Fort Smith last night. The alert GMri- zlies playing before a homecoming crowd, quickly turned three of their five recoveries into a 19-0 victory. El Dorado defeated Double A Texarkana 31-6 on a muddy fog- covered field, and Hot Springs dropped its eighth straight game, a 12-6 decision to double a Russellville.

Cars, Trucks Slide Off Half a dozen automobiles and trucks were ditched between here and Texarkana last night clue to slime and mud creeping up on paved U.S. 67 from shoulders that had been freshly-graded by the Slate Highway Department. Latest accident reported to The Stnr occurred about 10 o'clock this morning when a candy truck skidded off the pavement near Mac's Tourist Court, west of Hope. Last night five automobiles had to be pulled out of the ditch between Hope and Texarkana, by passing motorists. Most serious threat occurred when an Ashdown school bus. taking students to the Prescott Homecoming football game last night, was sidcswipcd at Clear Lake Junction, Miller county, by an automobile whose driver said he skidded on muddy pavement and inadvertently hit the school bus. No i.«v> was hurt, however, and the school bus was towed back onto the highway and continued to Prescott.

Washington, Nov. 13 —(#")—President Truman's post-election hint he isn!,t going to run agiin has plowed the field for a new crop of Democratic presidential contenders. With four years in which to make a record, two new Democratic Midwestern governors may give veteran party loaders a hot race for the 1952 nomination. They are Adlai E. Stevenson, who won a smashing victory in the politically important state of Illinois, and Frank J. Lausche, who takes over again in Ohio after a two-year lapse while the Republicans were in control. Lausche had to buck the regular Democratic state organization to get the nomination. Stevenson has a four-year term but Lausche will have to win reelection in 1950 to be in the running for the next presidential cam- The Associated Press survey " asked "what are your, suggestions .iinsSr,iiiingv-oi'.:'dM l iiiriishirag a '&r- Churchill Is Critical of British Stand London, Nov. 13 —M')—Winston Churchill expressed fear today Lhat Primp Minister Clement Att- Ice's attitude toward Western European unity "will exercise a depressing effect upon the movement."

Law By DeWITT MaoKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst The sentences of death by hanging for war crimes, meted out in Tokyo to former Japanese Premier fojo and six of his top leaders — lot to mention terms of imprisonment for others — recall (and may •evive) the argument revolving ibout the Nuernberg trials of Nazi leaders. The dispute was over whether such trials were admissible under .ntcrnational law land, if they wore, whether therc was moral justification for the death sentences. The first of these two points is, of course .egal; the second is based largely on the commandment "Thou shaft :iot kill." As for the legal aspect, much shment by imprisonment, no matter how severe. However. the death penalty raises other issues in the minds o£ a lot of folk. Some object on moral or religious grounds. This has just cropped up in Germany in connection with the continued executions in Munich of former Nazi guards at the Mauthausen concentration camp, convicted of large scale extermination of inmates by various methods. German church lenders have protested the executions, but 15 more of the 139 originally condemned were hanged yesterday, leaving 81 still to die. Then apart from moral and religious issues, there is an awful finality to execution which precludes correction of mistake in action. Apropos of corrections, a cou- aas been made of the claim that pie of months ago the life sentence international law never had recognized such charges prior to World War II, and that the various war- crimes trials have been based on a law created after commission of the crimes alleged. However, the Allies obviously have felt sure of their position, which was summed up in the Harvard Law Review in 1946 by Dr. Sheldon Glueck, professor of criminal law and criminology at Harvard, in this way: "Every recognition of custom as evidence of law must have a bc- of Use Koch, "queen" of the frightful B u o. k c n wald concentration cramp, was commuted to four years. General Lucius D. Clay, American military governor in Germany, said reduction of her sentence had been recommended by reviewing officers on the grounds "it had never been proved that Fran Koch selected prisoners for execution or had in her possession articles made of human skin." This commutation created a heated controversy, but it illustrates Nankins. Nov. 13—UP)— On the ,,~ : water-laced plains around Suchow . pdny Chinese soldiers rallied in a .

In spite'f, er , thc L l £our powers, Soviet r .t •!,„ t.,ii. — i i 1 ,.ii.. Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky again lashed out at the U. S. and Britain on the Berlin issue. He told the 58-nation political committee that the Western powers had "wrecked" the compromise proposals on' the Berlin crisis drafted by the security council neutral nations. He maintainca Russia's stand that the four-powers must agree on making the Soviet zone mark Berlin's sole currency before the blockade is listed. The Western powers still insist the blockade must be lifted first. The appeal to the 4 powers was sent to the chief delegates here of the four powers, with the request that it be sent to President Truman, Prime Minister Stalin, Prime Minister Attlee and Premier Queuillc. Evatt and Lie asked the' four to give this appeal urgent consideration. They said they believed the first step toward settlement of major differences would be a solution of the Berlin case. Soviet Russia has blockaded Western Berlin by land since June 23, and attempts in the U. N. Security Council to resolve the issue have failed thus far. Secretary of State Marshall said yesterday the case still is before the security council and that the West still is looking to the so- called neutrals of the council for any thing they may propose as a solution. Russia vetoed their first proposal. new Democratic governors may be heard from around party convention time four years from now—Chester Bowles of Con nececticut and Paul Dover of Massachusetts. But they aren't as well placed geographically as Stevenson and Lausche. The governors probably will have some strong rivals in Congress for Democratic honors. Strangely enough, two of them hail from Illinois—Senator Scott Lucas, who is slated to become Senate majority leader, and Paul Douglas, newly elected senator from that state. Although he comes from Little Rhode Island, Senator J. Howard McGrath also may have to be reckoned with among the presidential contenders. As Democratic national chairman. McGrath did what his friends call a masterful .job in keeping his party's quarreling factions well enough in line to help Mr. Truman with his surprising victory at the polls. Friends are likely to push Hubert Humphrey, new Democratic senator from Minnesota, for one of beer licenses? From the 27 members of the 1949 legislature who answered, came many varied suggestions, but a large percentage leaned toward creation of a board to handle the licenses. Senators R. E. (Pat) Garner, Fort Smith; Howard Holthoff, Gould; Grover Nance, Newport, and Ernest Maner, Hot Springs, and Reps. Clarence Taylor, Helena, Glen F. Walther, Little Rock, and Dave E. Thompson, Little Rock, were among that group. In suggesting a "commission of high calibre men and honest and fair men," Nance said, "this is necessary for any democracy of tree people." Walther proposed a board to which a decision of the commissioner could be appealed- and commented, "this plan has been successful in rent 'control." Rep.

Anderson, former secretary of agriculture and senator-elect from New Mexico, as well as Guy Gillette, who returns as Iowa senator after a four-year lapse. President Truman probably will have something to say about the choice of his successor. His selection pf a secretary of state to succeed George C. Marshall, for instance, might well make n formidable contender for the nomination. Also, some present cabinet member, such as Secretary of Labor Tobin of Massachusetts, might shoot into prominence. Or the Democrats might turn to the high court, where Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson-or Associate Justice William O. Douglas often are discussed as possible candidates.

But a thing can be new and true to one person and old and false to another. How else can you explain love, hamburger and Santa Clause? Personally, I have never heard the first story before. And it may be true. The second story — in one variation or another—has probably been told since the Greeks camped outside Troy. But a restaurant can't change its whole bill of fare every day. And with that cautious preamble, let us go on to the stories: A beautiful lady went into a fashionable Fifth avenue store to buy a new dress. There was a strangeness in her manntcr that caught the salesgirl's interest. It was the lady's fixity of purpose. Shu seemed to know exactly what she wanted.
