Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex, H. Washburn Did the Allies Bet on Wrong European Horse? When General Charles de Gaulle, angered by the American-British decision to return the Ruhr to Germany, warns the world that, "The Marshall Plan must not displace the essential inlcresls of 'France", he may be awakening thoughts in Washington and London that are quite the opposite of what he intends. Incredible as it is, both Americans and British are beginning to wonder if Germany, whom Ihey fought against, wouldn't be a more trustworthy ally in checking the a^sialic threat of Russia, than Franco, whom we fought for. And we didn't think lhal up by ourselves. Aclually it is France ^that is telling us. To be weak aiv" poor is no disgrace. But to be perpetually without national discipline ruled constantly by mobs— first Communist and then Fascist—is (o be utterly without national honor, and as great a menace to world peace, here in Ihe center of the Allied cause, as our declared antagonist Russia. General de Gaulle is wasting his and our time talking about France's '•essential intersts." He talks as though we are in the business of recreating the French republic. But •wo aren't. We made the mistake after World War I of helping the 1< tench for their own sake— and France repaid us by losing her own self-respect. She looked to Britain and the U.S. Ihereafter, and wont down in World War II practically without striking a blow. We aren't going to make that mistake again. This time our No. 1 interest is in establishing a dependable line for the defense of Europe againsl Asia. The interests of France are so far behind this I No. 1 position as not to be worth considering, beyond the polite formalities of diplomatic language. We've got to do something about Germany, because two world wars have proved that France either couldn't or wouldn't work hard enough to keep the Germans at bay—and if Germany this time is captured by the Russians then we don't have any more of a defense for the rest of Europe than we had during the French failures in 1914 and 1939. DC Gaulle can lalk all he wants to, for French consumption. But the fact is the rest of the Western world is going to make sure that Europe's battle line is drawn in Germany. I£ the French people want to make of Ihemsclvcs an island of incompetence and disorder it's going lo be behind Ihe front—not on the firing line. •fc -K -51 Joe's 'Interview' Interesting But Acts Reveal Soviet Policy By JAMES THRASHER A first glance at Premier Sta, Jin 1 ?

PRICE Sc COPY and Bobcats Roll Over Badgers by 37-0 Score Tha Hope Bobcats rolled up their 9th victory of the season against a couple of losses last night at the expense of a much weaker Arkadelphia team 37-0. At near lop strength Hope toyed with the Badgers most of the way. In fact before the game was over linemen were carrying the ball and making yardage too. The Hope line was perfect, holding the Badgers to practically no gain from scrimmage. As usual Burgess Garrett and Sam Westbrook and Don Duffie were the mainstays with the best performance edge going to Garrett. Sutton put the game on ice in the first period with a couple of touchdown tallies of 29 and 25 yards. Britt sealed it tighter in the second period on a brilliant 80 yard twister. But the Bobcats weren't trying to run up a large score. A couple of touchdown drives were halted to let Lee try a pair of field goals, one from 20 yards out which was perfect and another from the 38- yard line which barely missed, going just under the crossbar. In the second half Sutton dashed 26 yards for his third score anrt Guard Joe Martindale intercepted a Badger pass and ran it back 35 yards for a score. Besides his field goal Lee made 4 of 5 extra point?. Arkadelphia never seriously threatened despite the fact that Hope's second and third stringers were in most of the way. The Bobcats end the season Thursday in an annual tilt with the Scrappers. British Seamen Strike Delay Liner Schedule Southampton, Eng.. Nov. 20 — (/P) —About 300 crewmen of the British liner Queen Elizabeth walked off the ship today in sympathy with striking U. S. dock workers, delaying the giant liner's departure for America. The men walked off at 11 a. m. (5 a. m., CST), an hour before the ship was due to sail with 2,100 passengers on board. The 'ship already had been delayed three days because of the American longshoremen's strike. Cunard officials said the tide would be favorable for sailing only for another two hours. A Southampton official of the National Union of Seamen said the men claimed that if the ship sailed for Halifax the crew would be "breaking faith" with the American strikers. The offical, whose name was withheld, said the striking crewmen were "afraid of being beaten up" by American dock workers if the ship went to New York. Capt. C. M. Ford, the Elizabeth's skipper, had planned to sail the liner into the mid-Atlantic and then head either for Halifax or New York, depending on whether the American "strike was settled. Thd sailing time for the South- hampton-Ncw York run is about five days. U. S. longshoremen threatened yesterday to ban all Cunard liners from New York unless the company stopped diverting ships to Halifax during their strike. - Nov. 20 I/?]—The United By CARL BELL Slates and Britian were reported Associated Press Sports Editor 1 today to have turned down French Unlike the weather, Arkansas' picas ayninst rebuilding Germany's ndustrial power. Observers said high school six/ling hot. football playoffs are void" by the U. S. He said lhat the Iwo repudiated their representatives at the Moscow meetings in August and violated the agreement because they had decided to it for the question to the Security Council. He also implied thai Ihey welsh- ed on the solution reached in Paris. Those charges do not conform lo the facts. The Moscow arrangement was subject to agreement by the military governors in Berlin. Marshal Sokolovsky, Ihe Soviel commander, refused to live up to Moscow's end of the bargain outlined-in the August meetings. It was only after thai Ihut the western governments announced their ' intention of turning the Berlin problem over to the UN. Dr. Juan Bramuglia of Argentina, acting president of the Se- curily Council, said that there was never any draft decision which was agreed to by the major powers and the six "neutral" governments which were trying to write a compromise solution. Mr. Stalin probably knew, when he made those charges, that they could and would be refuted. Bui the refutations would never be pub^ lished in Russia, of course. So it is reasonable to assume that the whole thing was whipped up for home consumption. The reason why the usually aloof premier let go with this blast may have been Mr. Vishinsky's rather sorry showing :it the veto session of Ihe Council. His exercises were lame, and hinged on the technicalities of precisely when the blockade should be lifled. He gave no indication thai his government really wanted an agreement of that it intended to pursue the mailer t further. It wasn't a performance likely to impress anybody —even the Russian people. That may be why the Soviel dic- talor cast aside his role of "»ood old Joe" and spoke of the west us he usually does for domestic audiences. About the only difference Ihis time was that handouts of his question-aiid-answer session were given lo representatives of the world's press assembled in Paris. We doubt that the temperature of the cold w;ir is really much different as a result of his charges. * The hope of a German settlement is remote, just as it was before. But unless the Kremlin's strategy has been revised, any change in Russian pulley will probably manifest itself in actions, not in speeches. Of the eight first-round games played through last night, five were decided by margins of one touch down or less. No more than two touchdowns separated the winners from the losers in the other contests. The favored Blytheville Chicks of District Three earned a berth in the Class AA finals last night by beating Russellvillc's Crimson Cyclone of the Fourth District 7 to 0 at Blytheville. But the Chicks had to push over a fourth-quarter tally to do it. Smackover, District Seven," will meet Van Buren, District One, at El Dorado tonight for the right to face Blytheville for the championship week after next. Benton, Ihe District Five champion, soilled Batesville, District Two, 21-12 at Searcy last night and will square off against Waldron, Fourth District, in the Class A second round two weeks hence. Waldron had edged Bentonville First District, 2019 Thursday night. In the other Class A game, Paragould, District Three, nipped Helena of District Six, 6 to 0, at Forrest City, and Warren of District Eight pulled a mild upset in defeating Nashville, Seventh District, 14 to 6. These two winners will tangle in the second round.

Lake Village of the Eighth Dislricl scored the most convincing win to date in the playoffs by turning back Camden Fairview, District Seven, 20 to 13. At Blytheville. the Chicks knocked at the Russellvillc goal line four times but were repulsed tl-ii-ce times. On the other try, Halfback R.' C. Allen struck paydirt with a one-yard plunge. Russcllville twice reached the Blytheville eight. Once the Cyclone was stopped by a pass interception. The next time they lost the ball on a fumble. Back Bill Daniel was the man in Paragould's triumph over Helena. He ran 70 yards lo sel up Ihe gome's only touchdown and then scored on a one-yard buck. Warren's Lumberjacks had to come from behind lo win at Nashville. The host team broke the ice in the third period on a touchdown plunge by Red Graves. Warren look the ensuing kickoff and marched to the typing score, J. Cole six yards for the touchdown and then kicking the point. The Lumberjacks put the tilt on ice in the fourth quarter when End A.

After talks with French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman, Secretary of Stale George C. Marshall and British Minister of Slate Hector McNeil were reliably ronorted to have turned down a French plea to reyise the German policies. Responsible American arid British officials said, however, they promised to strengthen every safeguard against possible renewed erman aggression. The French government is ex- oecled lo submit a memorandum -his weekend registering their ob- :eclions lo: 1: The projccled return of properly rights in the Ruhr steel and coal industries to Ihe Germans. 2: The British-American refusal lo exlcnd the period of inlarnation ai control of Ihe Ruhr beyond Iho period of occupation. 3: The British-American decision to revise again the twice-refused program for dismantling Germany's heavy industries. This de ision would cut down German reparations deliveries to France and revive French fears of a re- conslructud German war polcntial. Fovors 0!eo T° B oic I %4l/\ Portland, Me., Nov. 20 — (/P)— The National Grange concluded its national convention today after withdrawing support of oleomargarine taxes and endorsing • compulsory arbitration of strikes that menace public welfare. The farm organization's policy molders voted after two hours debate last night to support margarine tax repeal "if and when 'of fective means arc taken to prevent deception in its sale in imitation of butter." Some delegates predicted the next Congress will repeal the tax 10 cents a pound on colored margarine and one-half: cent n pound on the uncolorecl product. The House passed repeal legisla tion in the 80th Congress. 'Opponents kept the measure from a veto in the Senate. Heretofore the grange has staunchly supported margarine nowbound By United Press At least nine persons were clcad and scores were marooned in snowbound houses and cars today in the aflOrmath of a big storm that swept across the Great .Plains from the Pacific Coast. Hundreds of rescue crews worked to free trains and buses stuck in snowbanks while others fought through drifts to reach people trapped on the highways or in homes and schoolhouscs. Temperatures hovered near zero in the storm area. The coldest spol was Chadron, Neb., where the mercury was exactly zero. Dickinson, N. D., and Sidney, Neb., rc- porlcd six degrees above, Minot N. D., seven above, and Akron, Colo., eight above. The dead included an unidentified middle-aged man found frozen near Springfield, Colo.; ;i man and wife killed in a crash on a highway near Montrose, Colo.; three men who died in a snowstorm in the mountains of Wash ington State; two men killed in- sla'nlly in a hcadon automobile crash on an icy pavement near Wilhnar Minn., and a farmer electrocttled in Louisiana when he touched a live wire blown down by strong winds set up in the South by the midwcstcrn storm. Committee Seeks Information on Flood Control Memphis, Tcnn., Nov. 20 — W) Members of the House and Senate Appropriations and Public Works committees were to leave here today on a Mississippi river cruise to New Orleans. The congressmen—four senators and four representatives—will inspect flood control installations while en route to the annual meeting of the Mississippi Valley Flood Control association. The meeting opens Tuesday in New Orleans, and Kep. Whitlmt;- ton (DMiss.) said last night he intends to propose a goal of $100,000,01,0 for Hood control work in the lower Mississippi valley for the next fiscal year. Whiltington — slated as chairman of the House Public Works committee in the (!lst Congress— said the money is needed for levee rebuilding and flood control work on the Arkansas, While, SI.

Jessup said: "The distinguished representative of Ihe United Kingdom has presented il (Ihe British proposal) with an invitation to amendment, and we might wish to avail ourselves of. this invitation at a later date." While J.essup said the United States supported Israel's claim to boundaries outlined in the original partition plan, he added: "If Israel desires additions, it would be necessary for Israel to of Ihe Negev in exchange for it. through negotiations." This was taken by observers as an invitation to Israel to renounce western Galilee, which its forces now hold, or to offer some part ot the Nege vin exchange for it.
