Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor ..... —Alex. H. Washburn - VFW Accomplishment Teller of Tales Roark Bradford Hope never has gotten that field- house for Winter sports and entertainment that The Star is always talking about but meanwhile the Veterans of Foreign Wars local post has done a good job. What the VFW did was to fix up the exhibit hall on the Third District Stock Show grounds so it would serve the public comfortably during the cold season. They hold dances and school events, out there, and about 300 persons were seated for dinner the night the Hope and State Chambers of Commerce used the hall for the annual award of Pasture and Balanced Farming contest prizes. It seems to me this is a practiced illustration of what Hope could do for community and trade- territory events during the Winter if we only had a real field-house. It would be a community sports and entertainment center from late Fall to early Summer, with seating capacity to make it feasible to bring college basketball teams here, and with bowling facilities on the ground floor. Football did not boom here until the community ventured to put up a stadium, and today Hope still doesn't have a Winter sports building with seating capacity equal to other southwest Arkansas towns and villages only a fraction our size. The death last week-end of Roark Bradford removes from the literary scene one of this generation's shining lights. You read many of his short stories in Collier's and the Saturday Evening Post, featuring the Little Bee Bend Plantation on Red river and the fabulous character the Widovv Duck. Greatest acclaim went to "Or Man Adam an' His Chillun," Roark's foundation work which went on the New York stage and Hollywood screen as "Green Pastures." But for most of us the short stories of the Little Bee Bend Plantation were most endearing because they were about our own Red river valley. I heard a lot about Roark Bradford the Spring of 1923 when I came out of the University of Missouri and went to El Dorado, and looking over his obituary I note that that was the year Bradford came back from the East and settled in New Orleans. He was close to many people at Camden and El Dorado, studied the rivers and the river folks all his life, and made them world famous in a career that ended abruptly at age 52. * * * General Bradley Offers Wise Prescription for Our Welfare By JAMES THRASHER After reading Gen. Omar N. Bradley's speech to the Chicago Economic Club we are convinced that General Ffeonhrwur -has n wholly worthy .successor ris chief of staff. General Bradley's military brilliance is'unquestioned. But his speech was marked bv the same clear-sighted wisdom, com- pasionate wish for peace, and understanding of the civilian's viewpoint which have made General Eisenhower the admired and trusted public figure that he is. General Bradley acknowledged that military expenditures were high and that they competed with needs of social progress. He said that it is the people and Congress, not the military, who must make the final decision on military budgets and rearmament. At the same time he expressed the sound view that one division for the prevention of war is worth a dozen divisions WEATHER FORECAST Arkansas: Showers this afternoon, partly cloudy and cooler tonight.

Britain Would Adopt Plan of Bernadotte By EDWARD CURTIS Paris. Nov. 18 —(/P)—Britain formally asked the United Nations today to apply the late Count Folke 3crnadotte's plan to Palestine. A British spokesman said the United States delegation took part "at an official level" in drafting this proposal. The British submitted to the 58- nation political committee a resolu- .ion following the lines of the sla'.n mediator's final report. The resolution calls for a conciliation commission of three nations to supervise the division of Palestine between Arabs and Israelis. The resolution suggested that the conciliation commission also taks over, at the request of the security council, any or all functions of the acting mediator, Ralph J. Bunche, and the present U. N. truce com- lission. The conciliation group also wou'.d appoint a technical boundaries commission to aid in outlining frontiers in Palestine "based on specific conclusions" of Count Bornadotte," and "subject to such adjustment as may promote agreement" between the Arabs and China Map Housewives Take Over Price War Indianapolis, Nov. 17 (UP)—Indianapolis housewives rushed to stores today to take advantage of a 52,000,000 "coupon war" being waged between chain grocery stores and independent proprietors. A local chain fired the first gun in the battle by mailing every metropolitan home a book of coupons worth $5.20 in trade. Most of the coupons were worth 10 cents to- for lighting a war. ward the purchase of a single item. General Bradley noted that [ Independent grocers retaliated "there is happily a vast difference ;by offering to honor the (chain's between the possibility and probab- i coupons. Or .-stocked up on the bar- ility of war." But he warned that j gain-type r '.j and waged an in- between thctri may lie a "twilight tensive caj.,:^ ' .ign to latch on to the -' ' : —-" • u; - u "--••" "• ''••" customers .oiiticcd by the chain. Another chain joined the fight by cutting its prices outright 10 cent's on all coupon items, for one week. "Why monkey with coupons?" The second chain asked in an ad- of tension" in which there is danger ot complacency if the cola war should become a "war of boredom." I; is encouraging to us to see that the general had bluntly labeled as "fools" those persons who talk of winning a war in a few days with new weapons, or who say "if war is to come, let it corne now." And it was more encouraging lo hear from a man, ho has a commanding voice in military policy, a statement of what he thinks that policy should be. We need, said General Bradley, a stable, long-range military policy no less than we need a stabli;, long-range foreign policy. It should be a policy that does not "respond to crises after they have erupted" and does not shift "every time a paper is rustled east of the Eloe. ' Foreign policy today is badly hampered by interim uncertainly. Military policy is still hampered by disagreement among the headers of our armed services, which seem to be "unified" more in name than in fact. Both situations give cause for some concern. So it is all the more reasuring to hear this clear and sane statement from the chief of staff, and to feel thai it is being urged upon our makers of top policy. The inaKers of top policy include Congress, of course, as well as Ihe executive department. And it seems likely that Congress will have the same confidence in hm that it had in his distinguished predecessors. Generals Eisjnhowjr and Marshall. If the present chief of stall' w.11 talk as convincingly to Cong: vs.-: —and through Congress to tlie poo- pic—as he did to the Economic Club of Chicago, lie will probably find strong backing for his wise prescription tor the nation tinued welfare.

Woman Trains Juveniles to Rob Springfield, 111., Nov. 18 — (IP) — A 50 year old Springfield woman, described by police detectives as a teacher of robbery techniques to three youths, is in jail on throe charges in connection with their brief crime spree. Detective Sgts. Charles Earley and James Ippolito said Mrs. Florence Moomaw was arrested last night and charged with armed robbery, attempted robbery, and contributing to the delinquency of a r.'iinor. The three youths, in signed statements, admitted one robbery and an attempted robbery. They also are in jail and are charged with robbery and an attempted armed robbery. Mrs. Moomaw, in the presence of police and Assistant State's Attorney Keith H. Dressendorfer, signed a statement relating her connection with the throe youths. Police said Mrs. Moomaw's statement disclosed that two young unidentified girls who lived at her home—one 11 and one 14 — had lured the three youths to her home. SI- > instructed them in procedure ir. staging robberies, escapes and disposal of loot. She told them to rob women. Police seized the three youths last Monday for investigation in connection with the robbery of a woman and an attempted robbery of a second woman. Their signed statements admitted the crimes. Police identified the three as Clifford Von Wert, 23; Robert Near, 18. and Paul Black, 17. The two girls are held in the juvenile home. Police said the 11 year old girl said in her statement she had been intimate with Von Wert. He was charged witn statutory rape. He said one issue of an Indianapolis newspaper on Nov. 4 contained coupons worth a total of SI. 10. Independent grocers criticized manufacturers of products advertised on the coupons. They said the coupons might violate fair trade laws prohibiting manufacturers from favoring one outlet over another. Berlin Money Problem to Get Attention Paris, Nov. 18 —(/P)— Secretary of State Marshall summoned American financial and monetary experts today from Washington and Berlin to advise on currency aspects of the Berlin crisis. They will consult with Dr. Philip C. Jessup, U. S. deputy who handles the Berlin case for Marshall in the security council. This step was disclosed by an American delegation source .as of the currency control problem in the former German capital. The American experts are flying to Paris from the Treasury Department in Washington and from Gen. Lucius D. Clay's military government staff in Berlin. The experts' will have before them a questionnaire on the currency issue which Security Council President Juan A. Bramuglia of Argentina has sent to the Big Four nations. Bramuglia is leading a Berlin compromise effort on behalf of the council's six "neutral" nations. U. N. SecretaryTGeneral Trygve Lie also has initiated a study of the currency question by his own technicians. American sources said today their delegation has not yet received any specific request for definite information from Lie. The Soviet Union has declared it will not lift the blockade unless the Soviet mark becomes Berlin's sole currency. The Western powers agree, but insist the Soviet mark must be under adequate four- power control when it within Berlin. circulates Youth Must Have Guidance in Career Of 140,000,000 two are alike.

Chang Liu-Shih, official military spokesman, told his weekly press conference: "The battle for Suehow can be considered as concluded. What the Communists do now is subject to conjecture." Chang pictured the Red forces in flight. He said government troops and planes were mopping up an area extending 30 miles around Suehow. The spokesman asserted 130,000 casualties were inflicted on the Reds as against 40,000 suffered nationalists. (Even as he spoke 1,250 American Marine reinforcements prepared to rush from Guam to Tsing:ao, 225 miles northeast of Suehow, bolster the 3,600 marines at the LI. S. naval anchorage there. Shanghai reports had a Red truck column moving toward Tsingtao from Tsinan. (U. S. Senator Gcaorge W. Ma lone l.R-Nev) in Tokyo told the Associated Press he attended a secret conference in Tsingtao yesterday at which plans were discussed by representatives of Gen. Douglas Mac-Arthur and navy leaders.

At the State Department, Press Officer Michael J. McDermott AFL Votes to Stay in Politics Cincinnati, Nov. IB — (IP) — The American Federation of Labor has entered politics on a permanent basis. Delegates to the federation's 67th annual convention voted yesterday to collect 10 cents from each of its nearly 7,500,000 members to finance a propaganda and education drive of "Labor's league for political education." The delegates acted as league 'members because Taft-Hartlcy act forbids direct contributions. The drive, with $750,000 working capital, will be centered in the nation's 110,000 polling .precincts during the next 14 months. The move was approved unanimously after Secretary-Treasurer George Meany told the delegates that 172 league-backed candidates had been elected to the House of Representatives, Nov. 2, and 106 classed as "unfriendly" were defeated. Meany said it was "a tremendous victory" and the "tide of reaction has been decisively turned." He cautioned, however, that "wo should not become overconfident xxx and forget our political responsibilities." A new move for merger wi^h the CIO was approved. A report of (he convention organization commUte.1 proposed that the door not cnly should be opened to the CIO but the AFL "should now reach out and grasp them by the hand and urge them to come back in'.o the AFL."

Tsingtao, Yellow Sea port ot the base of the Shantung penin-i sula, is close to Communist-controlled areas—so close that the water supply for the city is within Communist-held territory. Some experts believe that the Communists can take the city any time they choose, without much opposition from Nationalist .forces. 2. In the Shanghai-Nanking areas there are about 3,050 Americans.
