Our Daily Bread Sliced thin by The Editor .Alex. H. Washbui Report on a Trip Our of Town When We Really Fished I Your editor was out of town Monlay night and Tuesday, and going fcrough Nashville laic Monday I Stopped off at Nashville long enough to tell Louis Graves that Ills time I really was going fishing. My companion was Brown Turner : Kansas City, Mo., native of .ockesburg, long-time printer find .Vriter, and friend of mine since 1924 in the El Dorado oil boom days. At one time in his life Brown edited and printed the Washington Tele|graph, this county. About 1927, however, he was do- ,g the last of several jobs in the El Dorado Daily News shop as lino- Jtype operator, when I was editor, land Brown wanted to try the tele- Igraph desk. So we pulled him out lof the shop and made him a desk tman.

He now lives in a Kansas City suburb. I had been promising for a couple of years to'show him the Narrows lake, and he came in Sunday to take me up on that promise; Late Monday and all day Tuesday we shuttled around the big lake in an open boat, braced against a cold wind that blew first out of the north and \ *then from the east. The fishing, I 'confess, was bad—but any excuse is a good excuse to get outdoors. On Tuesday the dock folks up at Daisy told us the fishing had been swell the day before we got there. But somehow, as Brown put it, lor some guys the good fishing was always "only yesterday." But Brown did tell me the Narrows was the most beautiful of all the lakes he has fished on—and that includes Bull Shoals. So at least we , have established some good publicity for southwest Arkansas up around Kansas City. .And generally speaking fishing has been good on the Narrows this year I shouldn't let this column close .without complimenting' the State Highway Department for-one thing —they are finally painting that big new steel bridge across the Little Missouri river north of Nashville, saving it from a threatened rusty death. * cashing a $4,356.80 check for which [.here were no funds on deposit. She told the court she was "convinced he was right" about the balance and presented the check to Thomas F. Westbrook,. former bank vice president. Westbrook, who is too ill to appear in court, also faces federal charges in connection with the bank shortage. Mrs. Simington is charged with cashing the check for H. C. Seals, a 64-year-old Umpire, Ark., farmer. He also is on trial on a charge of writing the check at a time when he had only $4.49 in his account. Mrs. Simington said yesterday that she cashed the check for Seals because she was convinced he had the amount in his account. A former FBI agent said earlier that she told him' she cashed tha check because she was. afraid of Seals. Mrs. Simington denied this today and said she.was.not afraid of' Seals. Mrs. Simington, whose testimony was cut short by court recess 'yes.-, erday,: said Seals told her he wanted to draw out all the money n his account. She said he told her his balance was $4,350.80.

Mr, Eisenhower told his news conference that protection of the people was the basic theory of the administration's policy o f being ready, to retaliate instantly against any country attacking the United States or some allies. He said it merely carried out the role of reason, Mr. Eisenhower .said there was really nothing new in the policy, that the rule applies to nations as it does to individuals. He said that any Prrsident should be worse than Impeached .—he should be hanged — if-he doesn't do what he could to protect the American people. The President discussed a statement yesterday by Secretary of State John Foster Dulles that the chief executor has authority with outt consulting Congress to order swift retaliation against those who attack the United States or its allies in Europe and Latin Ameri- cal ordinance and had previously asked it either be enforced or ab andoned.

Rebel artillery opened another bombardment in the five-day battle for the strategic plain In the mountains of northwest Indochina and it may be the prelude' to another mass infantry attack tonight. Key French positions were the targets of 105 and 75 millimeter guns. But American-supplied Trench guns responded shot for shot and the mass attacks so far—accord; ing to a conservative French army estimate—have cost the 'rebels 3,000 killed. Along with those killed, it is estimated 9,000 have been rounded. That makes 12,000 men out of Action —the strength of a Viet; mlnh division —and about a ourth of the total forces Vietminh en .
