A completely civilized view of the ncivilizod Little Rock Gazette as taken by H. L. Minion, public elalions director of Arkansas plate Teachers college, Conway, when he wrote of Harris' piece: "It tends to deny the validity of one of the most widely accepted principles of social philosophy and Christian ethics, JUimely, the obligation of the ';*iavcs" to help the "have nots." This principle is well entrenched in our economic order, as shown by such things as the graduated rate scale on income taxes, the use of lax money for old-age benefits, and the support of charitable institutions. "In my book, it is less important as to where (geographically) we get the money than $?is as to where we put it. Given the same opportunities, the potential value to society of a boy or girl in a poor county is equal to that of a boy or girl in a rich one." Of course it is a point in thej Gazelle's favor that it printed' these blistering replies — but not a very big point. There isn't a news- amount nf property damage. Colder weather is forrccast for tonight to bring an end to spring- like temperatures which have prevailed in the state for about jtwo weeks.

The committee, in its first action on a money bill at this session of Congress, cut only $5,541,000 off the $3,338,783,000 requested by Mr. Eisenhower for tha Treasury and Postoffie Departments for the 1955 fiscal year starting July 1. This was a bit of less than two-tenths of one per cent. The small reduction indicated that Congress is going to find it hard t oreduce the overall budget enough.to eliminate the $3,000,000,000 deficit which the adminitra- tion has predicted for fisal 1955. The committee voted $577,855,600 for the Treasury, compared to .___. $578,783,000 requested by Mr. Eiby police as a tornado—-smashedjsenhower. Last year Congress gave the gymnasium at The College of the Treasury $612,001,000. : "~ ' The 'postoffice department was j roofed The College of the Ozarks j gymnasium at Clarksvillo in the (western section of the state. • Heavy rains were reported in most sections of the stale. The U. S. Weather Bureau at Little during the 24-hour period ending at 6:30 a.m. today was 3.20 inches at Dos Arc. Other stations reporting more than t wo inches of rain included: Ratcliffe, 3.09 inches; Little Rock, 2.44 inches; Yellville, 2.38; Devils Knob, 2.34 Clarendon, 2.18 Walnut Ridge and Flippin, 2.03; and Geeorgetown, 2.01 inches. Temperatures yesterday ranged in the high 70s; and the lowest temperature reported this morning was 48 degrees at Fayetteville. CLARKSVILLE, (ffi— A vicious wind storm dipped into this small mountain city last night, wrecking more than a score of buildings arid' injuring 20 persons. Most of the injured people were trapped when the storm—identified Vapors Ignite, Woman Suffers Burns on Arms Mrs. Carl Howcll, 904 East 5th St., suffered burns on her arms about 8:30 last night when vapors fiom cleaning fluid which she was using to wast out a sinhk ignited from the stove pilot light. The burns were not too serious. Paint on the kitchen cabinet was blistered and slight damage to ceiling paper in the kitchen were reported by the Fire Department which was called out. The damage was considered light. paper worthy ' of that doesn't relish the name controversy. aigl every newspaperman knows t.hK J .one letter, giving it the devil b worth ten praising it — from the standpoint of reader interest. " But what bothers me is the increasing irresponsibility of Arkansas Gazette policy in recent years. How do you reconcile these two 1he Ozarks. Dr. George R. Siegel, who also is mayor of Clarks'ville. said only one of the victims was injured critically. He i dentified the man as Larry Burnham, a student al Ozarks whose home is in Paris Ark. ''Dr. Siegel said Burnham suffered a skull fracture a nd a brain concussion that caused a hemorrhage beneath the skull. Fifteen of the injured people receive first aid treatment at Clarks- absolutely conflicling news "plays" i vil;e ' s onl y hospilal and were ro- ' ' ' . . . • ,vhich occurred almost the same lay: 1. The Gazelle is making a great loise about the welfare crisis in P^nsetl and Mississippi counties, .vnere local authorities are swamp- 2d by the tide of itinerant workers leased, said the mayor. Dr. Don Hnmm, Johnson County disaster chairman for the Red Cross, said that between 15 and 20 homes were destroyed or badly damaged by the storm. Also wrecked were a service station, returning from the North. two garages and a small cafe. 2. The same Gazette has Sam j Dr. Hamm said none of those ff arris do a feature article tending i who lost Inch- homes was without .o show that Little Rock should tecp all the sales tax money it col- .eels — leaving nothing at all for hat very crisis it is moaning about n Poinsetl and Mississippi coun- ,ies. Mind you, these aren't news sfco- "tj/fe we are discussing. News is in- Consistent of course. But these are 'eature articles — policy pieces vhich someone was ordered to vrite. And policy went in opposite iirections virtually the same day. shelter as neighbors and relatives opened their doors to the homeless. Death laid a threatening hand on the college gym, where bleacher scats kept the roof of the building from ci-ashing down on the floor. The bleachers stopped the plug- ing roof, and allowed the crowd which had gathered there to watch an intramural basketball game to escape. Had the tornado wind struck five minutes earlier, the crowd still would have been sitling in the bleachers. The Rev. Troy Clinesmith, a Methodist minister who's a student at the Presbyterian school, said about 150 people still were in the jgym when the roof came crashing down.Dr. Siegel agreed with tlvj estimate.

Congress is required by law to appropriate whatever money is necessary to meet these fixed obligations.

The resolution called for all federal aid to be withheld or withdrawn until al local relief channels have been exhausted. WASHINGTON, l/P) —The House Ways and Means Committee agreed today to make April 15 the annual deadline for filing individual tax returns effective next year. The committee said in a state ment that this change "will greatly relieve the difficulties taxpayers presently have in preparing their returns by the present filing date'' of March 15. The new date would affect some 55 million individual taxpayers. The proposal would not affect filing of returns this year on income earned in 1953. This year's returns will still be due by March 15. feximsters snsfr No Raid Pact By NORMAN WALKER MIAMI BEACH, Fla., W— Dave Beck, president of the AFL Teamsters Union, today indicated he prefers to negotiate his" own private peace treaty with competing unions rather than enter the proposed AFL-CIO "no raiding" pact. He steered clear of making any commitment on the AFL-CIO plan pending a conference with a score of lawyers and the teamsters' General-Executive Board today and to- morrbw,"' But he made it plain the most effective way of solving • labor wars is for unions to barter out their own peace arrangements union by union "We expect to continue to try to reacih bilateral agreements with siste,i unions within the AFL to spell out each one's jurisdiction organizing cam- He disclosed such an "agreement had been virtually completed this week with the AFL Upholsterers Union, outlining the jurisdiction of each and making arrangements so that each will eventually surrender members properly belonging to the other.

F. Yarbevry, aged 70 ed in Los Angeles, California, bo ebiuary 10. Mrs,. Yarberry was a rmer resident of Hope, and was e mothoi of Roy Yarberry, Burial was it| Rose JRJU Los Angeles. ' §i At 10 Judy had an I. Q. of 172, or roughly double the intelligence level of the average Hollywood ex- Jecutive, if what y on hear about Hollywood is true. But it rather disturbed Judy to have an intellectual batting average comparable to that of Babe Ruth in baseball. She never had a desire to grow up and become a lady Einstein, and feels time has enabled her to overcome the hand- picap of being a child genius. "I've had to live it down, s,nA think J have," Eho said, wryly the other day at Sardi's. "They s ay you change every seven years. Whatever my I. Q. was when I was a child, it certainly has been going downhill since. "But ot imposed a terrible obligation on me for a long time. It embarrassed me. People expected me to be devastatingly witty—to talk like a knife blade." At the ripe old age of 31 (it says right here in black print) Judy finds it more comfortable that people now expect her to be as dumb in real life as she acts on stage and screen. It is so restful. Meanwhile Judy, c u r r ently starred in Columbia's "It Should Happen to You." has. been wise enough to insist on making only one film a year so the public won't tire of her Continues PS -and her own work recommend a court-martial for Marine Col. Frank W. Schwable, who made a false germ warfare confession while a war prisoner of the Communists in Korea. Three Marino generals and an admiral, sitting as a court of inquiry, began taking testimony to help them determine why Schwa- 'ble, the senior Marine officer laken by the Reds in Korea, told his captors the United Nations used germ warfare weapons. Schwable, who lives in nearby Arlington, Va., repudiated that confession after he was freed last year in a prisoner exchange. He said in a statement he signed the confession only after the Reds degraded and humiliated him and wore him out both physically and mentally. Senators Vote Opposite Sides WASHINGTON Wl— Arkansas' Democratic senators were on opposite sides of the fence yesterday as the Senate adopted the first amendment to the proposed Bricker constitutional amendment. Sen. McClellan voted for the amend • ment Fulb,right against. The Senate vote was 68-20, The measure would revise the first section of the Bricker proposal to make it apply to international agreements, Merchants Plan March Activities The Retail Merchants Committee of the Hope Chamber of Commerce met yesterday afternoon in Ihe Chamber office.

Chairman Mike Kelly of the March Promotion Committee, reported that the committee has worked out plans with the Hope Garden Clubs and other ladies' organizations in every community in the county to arrange a display of flowers In each of the 26 participating stores for Tuesday, March 23. The general public will be asked to vote for the one they think most beautiful and two first place prizes will be awarded one of the garden club groups and one to other-than- garden-club group.

One other committee which was appointed included Harrell Hall, Chairman, Emil Kaden, and Herbert Burns, who will work with the Southwest Branch of the Arkansas Hereford Association in its annual sale, scheduled for the Third District Livestock Show Coliseum March 2, 1954. Wants U.S.. to Ignore Iron Curtain Group WASHINGTON, W)— Sen. Doug las (D-II1) today 'asked Congress to pass a resolution calling on President Eisenhower to withdraw U.S. recognition of Iron Curtain tries. In 1940, Douglas said in a statement, President Franklin D. Rooso velt refused to recognize Russian- dominated governments of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia on grounds the Baltic states had been seized forcibly by Russia. His resolution would extend this "doctrine of n'onrecpgnition," he phrased it, to all Eastern European nations svvallowed. up by ,Hus- sia after World War II, with the exception of. Albania.

Noneever has been substantiated. Soviet submarines have been consistently reported passing through the straps of Formosa on their way to Hainan island. Several times American ships and planes have been dispatched to investigate, since the U.S. 7th fleet guards the straits. The Russian submarines are being used to supply Communist led rebels fighting the French in Indochina and to smuggle Red agents into the PJihiliippines and Malaya, intelligience sources said. Reliable U. S. naval sources in Tokyo said recently about "one- third" of the Russian submarine fleet is stationed in Far Eastern waters. It was estimated there are this part of the world. These American sources said the presence of these "unfriendly" submarines was one of the reasons for the current antir submarine "Operation Sonata," which is being conducted by U.S., British and French forces in the South China Sea,, Two Auto Accident's/ One Person Arrested Two auto accidents were investigated by city police yesterday, resulting in one person being arrested.
