The only trouble was that he was matching minds with a ttiighty sharp firm of Competitors. The Plhkertons had been in the business a bit longer than he had— plenty long enough to smell a bogus set of tratks once they had run them to the JD-Bar and had a little exploratory talk with Old Man Coleman. Before the day was outj the Dallas telegraph wires were" humming, in direct consequence, a projected robbery of the Mopac was shortly subject to some rescheduling, On May 27 the gang, having separated to ride up from Texas in two groups—Jesse and Cole in the first and Frank James, with Bob and Jim Younger in the second, rendezvoused at the old Roar ing River hideout. Unknown to them, the trails of both groups had been picked up within the past 48 hours, lhat of Jesse and Cole at Siloam Springs, Ark., that of Frank and his companions at the little Cherokee town of Spavinaw, in Oklahoma Territory. But a telegraph wire will hum both ways. At Siloam Springs, once more showing that long-minded caution of his, Jesse had sent a message to his wife, then living Clinton, Mo., 80 miles south of-Kansas City,* with friends.", Zerelda was going 't r us t e d under her maiden name;' her hosts, non-native Missouri kin of her father, John Mimms, didn't even know their great-niece was married, let alone to whom. It was, at the same time, a deception of limited possibilities/ Had not Jesse's fateful wire disrupted it, it would soon enough have, fallen apart under its own. growing' weight Zerelda was four months ,pregnant. Jesse's communique was^ typi- cally io the point! "Will be a honeymoon house." It was signed: "Love, Tom,' 'after his favorite alias, Thomas Howard. Only the day previous, young Hibb Wood son had ridden all the way down from Clay County with the alarming report that four strangers, suspected of being plainclothes Pinkerlons, had visited the office of the sheriff in Liberty. All effort, Hibb had w-a r n e d Zerelda, must be niade to contact "the boys" in time. At the moment of Hibb's asking, Zerelda had not the least idea Where her bandit husband might be. Now she had that dangerous knowledge. But Hibb was already gone back into the Clay County hinterlands, and there was no time to go after him. It is a matter of folklore record that for seven days Zerelda Mimms was missing from the Clinton home of her unsuspecting kinfolk. She returned there the morning of June 1.. Her story' was short and Simple. She had "impulsively" gone to care for an ailing cousin ''down near Seligman." It was the 28th of May. They had been at the cabin 24 hours. Each had had but little bettor than four or five hours sleep. Bob Younger slid his mount to a. stiff legged stop outside the darkened cabin. He'piled off him, crouching and squinting through the night-gloom. "That you Jess?"

Suggested title: "With Douglas in the Deep South." You'll recall that Paul Douglas, who played Captain Queg in the Thursday, May S, troupe, was reported to have popped off in Greensboro, N.C., that 'The South stinks. It's a land of sowbelly and segregation." The casual remark to a Greensboro Daily News reporter started a chain reaction. Producer Paul Gregory canceled the play's tour, declaring that Douglas* remark lad so infuriated the South that susiness would be poor. Douglas denied he issued the quote and sued Gregory for a million dollars. Actors Equity placed the actor on irobation for a year because of his conduct on the tour. How 'did the hassle look to an nocent bystander? "Naturally, the rest of the company wasn't happy about his re- narks," said Corey. "But I'm not sure what effect they had on bus- ness.

Unable to reach a principal member of the clan in time, fearful of trusting' any less than a blood kinsman, Zeralda James had hired a racing throughbr'ed from the Clinton Livery, ridden' the 159 miles to Roaring River in two nights and three days. She had ridden alone, guided along ^he unmapped back roads only by the year-old memory of her .honeymoon trip by wagon the previous spring. A mixed posse of Pinkerton detectives and Arkansas and Missouri peace officers closed in on the Barry County cabin'' in the gray daylight of the 29th. Jesse James was 'gone. There simply was not a better- liked, more popular couple--in'the farming community of Big Creek, some miles outside Nashville, Tenn., than the Tom 'Howards. They were lively young folks and that new baby of theirs that had arrived, last O cto ber was just about the brightest-eyed little boy you would ever want to see. His father called him Tim his mother called him Eddie. From that, the Big Creek residents assumed the lovable tad's full name was Thomas Edward Howard.

The baby's real name was Jesse Edward James. The happy year was ended. Sitting across, from Jesse at the close of that last supper in the white - painted Tennessee farm- the folks down there took the incident in good humor." Corey explained that the company had swung up to Pittsburgh when'the cancellation came from Gregory. Other Southern dates remained to be' played. Then the producer was threatened with law suits by civic groups and others who were sponsoring the canceled dates. He whipped up a company headed by William Bendix to fulfill the obligations.

State Parole Director W. P. Ball id he plans to meet Claude Hor n, 40, when the latter arrives by bus. Horton, who was paroled two years ago from a 10-year Arkansas penitentiary sentence, late las) month finished the minimum 130 months of a one-year sentence for burglary in a Los Angeles jail. At his request, Horton was permitted to come back from California without a guard. He was sent a bus ticket for his return. ^jjBall said the unusual action was taken because Horton, although possessor of a considerable prison record, had been a model prisoner and was a trusty when he was confined in Arkansas. The parole violator also was authorized to spend 48 hours with his wife and four children in Fort Worth. Ball said Horton reported from Fort Worth by telephone that he was continuing his journey to Little Rock. Ball said he probably would drive Horton to Tucker prison farm tonight. He added that if the convict's family was with him, Horton might be permitted to remain overnight in Little Rock. Horton was sentenced in 1946 from Sebastian County to 15 years for burglary and robbery. Former Gov. Ben Laney reduced the sentence to 10 years. Horton, who had been the recipi- t of frequent furloughs, was pa- F oled in 1953. The parole was re- yoked after he was jailed in California.

LIVINGSTONE WASHINGTON I/P) — The House voted yesterday to restore high rigid farm price supports in a second display of the Democratic leadership's ability to flex its political muscles in defiance of the Eisenhower administration. As proved to be the case earlier when it voted to cut everybody's taxes by $20, nothing seemed likely to come to this new move—at least this year. The vote was 206-201 to scrap the flexible system of price sup ports which Congress approved last year at the urging of the administration.. Speaker Rayburn (D-Tex) and other Democratic leaders mustered 185 Democrats and 21 Republicans for the bill; voting for the administration were 29 Democrats and 172 Republicans. At the tense windup, several members switched their votes to provide the winning margin. Aside from Rayburn's support, there were other parallels to the Feb. 25 vote to cut income taxes. In both cases, there was obvious Senate reluctance to go along. It scuttled the tax cut. And in both cases there was the likelihood of a veto, which probably could not be overridden, by President Eisenhower. The farm bill will carry over into next year's session of Congress, and the Senate may act on it then. It seemed likely to be pigeonholed for 1955.

The two chain drugstores, located at the same intersection, in downtown Little Rock slashed prices on the three items to as much as one-half the orignal price. The price-cutting here so far is only a skirmish compared .to the price war the past few days in El Dorado. The grocery price-cutting there slackened considerably. T. E. Tyler, executive secretary of the Arkansas Retail Grocery Association, said that the group's Board of Directors had empowered Mm to take legal action to stop the price-cutting. Tyler said that the legal action would be based on the Fair Practices Act of 1937, a measure which prohibits selling items at. below wholesale cost for the purpose of 'njuring or destroying competition. Tyler said that the action of the directors came as a result of the price-slashing in El Dorado and .ittle Rock. The managers of the two Little Rock drugstores said they had cut irices in order to meet competi- ;ion from grocery stores here which had reduced prices on the terns. It could not be determined whether the items were being sold at below cost to the merchant. At El Dorado, John .Alley of Alley's Supermarket said: "I feel that I have never vio- ated the 1937 Unfair Practices Act as there are provisions in the law that give the merchant .a right to „ ^j j n ji ^ ^,- • (Protect himself' against cut-rate ( ,Rev.
