The high tribunal snid Pulaski Prosecuring Attorney Sam Robin, fc son erred in referring to an alleged '* confession by Smith in his opening slatcmcnt without cautionary inslruclions of Ihe trial courl. The courl added lhal Ihc confession, which Smilh charged was obtained by third degree methods, (X| was inadmissible. Circuit Judge Gus Fulk erred, the courl said, in neglecling lo inslrucl Ihe jury lhal punishment could be fixed at life imprisonmenl on a first degree murder conviction. (J) The girl, Smith's niece by marriage, was last seen Sept. 25, 1942 walking home from a Litlle Rock school with -a man witnesses identified as Smith, her body was found four weeks later in a secluded spot about three miles from the school., ™ Commenting on Smith's charge that he was beaten inlo signing Ihc confession, Ihe court said; "We are not saying that the de- fendanl's slalemenls were Irue; we are merely detailing lhal the $) defendant testified regarding the alleged confession. We do not live in the land of Ihe German geslapo. The law of our land surrounds everyone even the meanest I criminal and the vilest character I *» — with the presumption of inno ' cence; and we must never allow that presumption to be destroyed by Gestapo taclics. "The. law is well selllcd lha when a question is raised as to Ihe nalurc of the confession, the worth one billion 100,000 farms dollars.

And before another crop-year rolls around the companies cxpecl lo be "subslanlially pul of Ihe business of farm opcralion." The Institute of Life Insurance Concludes correctly that this happy slalc of affairs is — "Ihc resull of war-lime high prices for farm producls and a rehabilitation program which has put many formerly rundown farms in shape for the real cstalc market." The insurance companies un- on the subsidies to burden is on Ihe slalc lo show ils free and voluntary character.

Under no circumstances should any man commit himself to the belief thai farms reprcsenl an investment, which is proof against an inflationary panic.

Filsjarrell and union represenlalives said Ihe same condition would prevail on the Oklahoma side. There are currently about 4,000 miners employed in Arkansas and 2,000 in Oklahoma although United Mine Workers claim 8,000 members in the dislrict. The 130 mines hi Arkansas produced a daily average of 7,700 tons last year. were shot and killed, and eight other policemen and more than 180 civilians injured this morning as race rioting spread over a large Negro section adjacent to downtown Detroit. Sporadic fights continued as Major Edward J. Jeffries and law enforcement officials conferred at police headquarters on means of halting the riols which police said started with an isolated fist fight on the Belle Isle bridge late last night. The mayor ordered every saloon and bar in the city closed. Governor Harry F. Kelly notified his office at Lansing he would ro- lurn lo Michigan al once from Ihe governor's conference at Columbus, Ohio, to assist in dealing with the problem. At the same lime he was in telephonic conference with Detroit officials concerning possible mobilization of the stale troops. Disturbances which occurred over an area roughly throe miles square heavily populated by Negroes and lying cast and northeast of the downtown area, spread this morning t o Woodward Avenue, "main slem" of Dclroil which runs from Ihe Detroit river north. Al Woodward and Adelaide street, a crowd of 300 lo 400 whites was reported milling about, stoning every passing automobile that, carried Negroes. Police reported it consisted moslly of young men dressed in overalls and working clolhes. A barrage of rocks forced one car lo strike a safety zone; the car then was overturned. This group finally was dispersed when police riot cars arrived with 200 officers carrying machine guns and tear gas pistols. A survey of five police precinct stations at 8 a.m. showed at least 238 persons held for assault and disturbing Ihe peace, One of those slain bore a draft card issued lo Carl Lincoln, 19. Pa- Irolmen Harold Bole and Vei'non Stalled Mining Industry Looks to Government Washington, June 21 — (/P) — The big coal mining cog of the nation' war machine stalled again today and the 500,000 miners who run it looked to the government for their cue. Rejecting what they tcrm'qd an infamous yellow dog contract" pro posed by the War Labor Board (WLB) John L. Lewis and his United Mine workers invoked their "no contract no work" policy for the third time within two months after negotiations with the operators collapsed. The door was held open for a speedy resumption of operations under the direct sponsorship of the government, however, and the next move appeared to be up to Interior Secretary Ickcs, who was placed in charge of the mines on May 1 as federal fuels administrator. Ickes, represented by his aides as feeling no precipitate action last night could have fended off the-expiration of the latest work truce at midnight, made no immediate comment. He cancelled a projected trip to Columbus, Ohio, where he was to have atendcd the governors' conference opening there today, however, and stood by to receive union representatives. The operators declared with the breaking off of negotiations yesterday "no possibility of agreement cxsits" so long as the miners con- liuc their insistence on $1.30 a day extra pay for underground travel time. This figure had been whittled down from an original demand of $2. The Mine Workers' Policy committee, in a 750 word statement assailing the War Labor Board, which Lewis has charged with prejudice, declared: "We,assert the willingness of the. nil no workers to" work and continue the production of coal for the government itself, under the direction of the custodian of mines. "The executive officers of the United Mine Workers of America are hereby instructed to hold themselves- in readiness to confer with the secretary of the interior."

The account, from the none-lco- roliable Transoccan News Agency,' said the quake occurred shovily afler 7:30 p. m. Sunday night during a heavy thunderstorm, an 3 lhal a muffled subterranean rumbling from below the earth's surface added to the terror. The quake's epicenter was placed at Adapazar and the unconfirmed reports, Transocean said, were that 40 per cent of the houses were deslroyed and another 30 pper cent were damaged severely.

II creates nearly 55 per cent of the electricity used. II runs four oul of every five railroad locomotives, it ho;its approximately 50 per cent of Ihc nation's homes. The work stoppages began in an orderly fashion with Ihe Friday n'mhl shifts and approximately 74,000 miners had quit work before the whistles blew an empty summons this morning. As Joe O. Grady, union local vice president at Ohio's Willow Grove mine summed it up: "We're not on strike, but we're nol going to work because we haven't any contract." Anatolia is the great western peninsula of Turkey between the Black and Mediterranean seas, leading to Ihe Dardanelles. . Earth tremors also \ver c reported felt in other parts of Anlolia, even in Ihe easl. Sparse and dis- rupled communications delayed accurate accounts of damage and suffering. The earthquake shocks were fell at Istanbul, formerly Constantinople, and the principal city of Turkey, and the German agency said Ihe people there were "seized with panic," rushing from their homes and restaurants. It required more than an hour to restore calm, the report added. The broadcast, recorded by the Associated Press, said all telegraph and telephone communications were disrupted and thai railway Iraffic between Istanbul and the capital, Ankara, was interrupted. Sicily Target of Large Allied Formations By HAROLD V. BOYLE Allied Headquarters in North Africa, June 21 (/P)— Lieut. Gen. Carl A. Spaatz' air fleets were declared officially today to have wrought new destruclion upon Sicilian largcls from Marsala to Messina straits — shooting down 16 Axis fighters in the process — and the Rome radio said Naples < and four other Itailian mainland cities also were raided yesterday. Medium bombers and fighters cooperated to round out "heavy week-end blows against Italy and Sicily. The Italian hifh command com- munique, broadcast from Rome, said Naples, a major west coast supply port; Foggia, a railroad city near the spur of the Italian boot; Spinazzola, 45 miles to tho southeast; and Reggio Calabria and San Giovanni, on the toe of Ih boot, were atlacked by Allied airmen yesterday. (These raids were not reported in Allied announcements, but the Italians have on occasions told of such thrusts before they were reported by Northwest Africa, Malta or Middle East communiques.

HIGHTOWER (Copyright, 1943, By The Associated Press) Washington, June 21 — (/P) — Radar, the mosl revolutionary new weapon of this war — an instrument that has secretly shaped Ihe course of victory in many historic battles — was originally developed in the United Stales as a by-product of radio research by a Itille sroup of naval scientists, long on faith and short on funds. Had they not persevered in their work in the face of official inertia, comoounded in many instance by scoffing disbelief, the United States might have lost the war about 10 ol 20 years before il began. To mililary and naval men now it is inconceivable that we should have entered this struggle with out, radar. The record shows thai the scientists began to realize thai fact, more than 20 years ago. Long before the bailie of Guadalcanal, they envisioned radio "eyes" to let warships "see 1 through fog and darkness. Long before the battle of Brilain, they foresaw ^ wall of detective rays ringing the frontiers of nations en dangered by air attack. Almost be ore airplanes flew at night, they onceived the ideas which make oday's Allied night fighters the deadly killers they are. This is the story of radar, so ar as it may be told now, and of the men who made it. Two months ago the story could lot have been to,ld at all. Radar was so secret and its secrecy was considered so vital to the United Nations lhal even mention of the lame was taboo. It is true that the Axis had a similar instrument; but the admirals and generals who decide such things believed ours was a lot bet- ler lhan theirs — knew it by pe- formance if nothing else. They did not want any loose talk about radar so they ordered no talk at all. What the scientists, being naval research men, apparently did not fully anticipate is that they were spawning a new branch of the radio industry in the field of elec- hrbnics. Today radar is a mulli- million-dollar industry for war tomorrow it wlil become a billion- dollar industry for peace. Radar wil guide tomorrow's sea and air- the position she deserves after the war," the announcer said, "demand peace and demonstrate for peace.") The Northwest African Air Forces lost five planes during the fresh operations, which included a heavy assault by RAF Wellingtons on Messina Salurday night. Fires visible 100 miles away were started in the Messina railway freight yards and the ferry terminus area. Aerial patrols over Pantelleria frustrated a new attempt by Axis fighter - bombers to break through and strike at the island's British garrison. (Axis radio broadcasts said Allied naval dispositions off Syria indicated a possibility of action in the Aegean. (A Salurday nighl allack by German bombers upon an Allied convoy off Cape Serrat, Tunisia, was reported in a DNB dispatch radioed from Berlin to have left six transports and merchantmen lolal- ing 35,000 Ions seriously damaged, one of them enveloped "in a huge cloud of smoke." DeGaulle Is Prepared to Leave Algiers By DANIEL DE LUCE Algiers, June 20 (#>)— Polilical intimates of Gen. Charles de Gaulle declared today the tall Fighting French leader was prepared to leave Algiers for Beirut or Brazzaville if his military reform program failed to win adoption by the Commitlee of National Liberation in the discussions beginning lomarrow. De Gaullists expressed concern over a possibility that Gen. Henri Giraud, with prevoiusly unex pected • support, might be, able to continue the status quota in French military affairs. The new threat of de Gaulle's withdrawal followed by ten days his first "strike" when he refused to attend sessions of the orginal seven members of the French committee and demanded that committee of 14 members be convened. A formula for the division of military authority between de Gaulle as commissioner of national defense and Giraud as commander in chief had been generally reported acceptable in principle by bolh faclions. But de Gaullists said they feared lhat the plan, if put into effect under present conditions, would have so many limilalions lhat de Gaulle would be hamstrung in attempts to rejuvenate th e army by ousting over-age officers and others who previously were loyal to Vichy. De Gaulle definitely will atlcnd the committee meeling tomorrow morning, his close adherents said.
