Both trips were on the spur of the moment. Milri had talked bis. It produced no action. He had talked optimistically. It proved erronco'.b. The French may make a peace that will let the Communisla take much of Indochina now, all of il eventually. Dulles seems helpless to stop it and apparently feels helpless. The record tells the story.

Mololov used it to starl the machinery for dividing the Allies. The main purposes of the conference unification of Germany and an. Austrian peace treaty got nowhere. Molotov didn't jend an inch on Ihem. But he got agreement by Duller. Eden and Bidaul to meet with him and the Chinese Communist Premier, Cliou En-lai, at Geneva i n April lo discuss peace in Korea t,nd Indochina.

The British turned Dulles down, preferring to wait for the outcome of the Geneva conference before getting intJ a war i n Asia.

Slate education officials indicated today that either one or both of two recent developments make requests for more money almost mandatory. They are the national Supreme Court's de-segregation decision and the disclosure by an Arkansas Education association official that the state now is spending less money on its school children than any other state in the union. AEA officials make no secret 'of the fact that they will ask foi norc money for the schools. Am Stale Education Commissioned sembly. ' Ford said the Mississippi lawmakers may have taken the action as a possible defense for the state's intent to circumvent the Supreme Court ruling by abolishing the public school system in Mississippi and converting it into a privately-operated system.

Written by John Fletcher, staff writer for the Arkansas Gazette, it appeared In that paper on Sunday. Jan. 25. 1953, some time before the name of Faubus had been mentioned as a possible candidate. A few facts not mentioned In the story are the following: In May, 1942, Faubus left the office of Circuit Clerk and Recorder to volunteer as a private to the Army, at the same time giving up the uncontested Democratic nomination for county judge of his county. He served as district commander of the American Legion in 1948. He is now president of the Madison County Chamber of Commerce and HuirtsvHle postmaster, positions he will soon relinquish to carry on his campaign for governor.) The 29th and 35th Divisions •were advancing toward St. Lo shortly after establishing a beachhead in Normandy. An officer of the 35th said: "We need someone to guide new units up to the front, someone who knows his way around in woods and hills, someone who won't get lost." A fellow officer replied: "I think I know the man you want. He ; is Lieutenant ^ Faubus who grew up in the hills of Arkansas. He ought to know his way around." v ., He was right. Back in Madison Courier, Arkansas,.the country boys' spending money came from fur-bearing animals. From the day that Orval EUgene Faubus was old enough to follow a string of traps he had roamed the hills and valleys at will. Day or night, it made no difference to most country boys in Madison County. They didn't need a compass either. A compass to those lads was like a waste paper basket to a newspaper man. It was sissy! So Lieutenant Faubus was pressed into service as a guide to fresh troops and to others who were to be transferred from one point to another. He •was used to lead patrols, to perform additional duties that required a highly developed sense of direction. Those jobs, of course, came on top of his regular work with a combat intelligence group. During the next year he walked (or rode in a jeep) side by side with foot soldiers who were in the furious fighting of five major campaigns. And the Lord walked with him. Of the 187 men in his company when he went into the first battle, only he and three others survived the war. He wasn't even scratched while many died within a few feet ol him. He owns a batch of medals, including a Bronze Star awarded for his work in helping to take out an enemy machine gun nest that was holding up an Allied advance. His favorite of them all, now- ever, is a combat infantryman s ^ badge. * * * -''His intimate knowledge of the " woods probably saved his life several times. Unlike city-born boys, he knew how to read the signs of the forest. A broken twig, a bit of scuffed earth— these things meant something to him. As a result he was able to spot booby traps that had been set in pathways and other places where soldiers might be expected to walk. Little things often mean much to a woodsman. For example. Faubus was caught at a road intersection when the German artillery decided to shell that particular point. While crouching in a hole he noted that the shelling was being performed in a methodical manner. After eight or 10 hits at the intersection, be counted the time between shells.

Faubus WM3tbaX<l thought of •"tfiif"ihcid4nt"i~Taw'days ago when, after being squarely on the target s 'area of the political shells'that riddled the McMath administration, he wouna up as the recipient of a handsome petition on bejialf of.his candidacy for highway director signed by some of the most rabid McMath •critics in the state r senate. ! Faubus remained with the 35th Division as it fought through the Normandy, Northern France,' Khineland, Ar- "dennes and Central Germany - campaigns. He wound up the war at a bridgehead across the EJlbe'River, the point of nearest advance to Berlin by American forces. By that time f hc had •been promoted to the rank of .captain. ••• .After a year.in the Army of •Occupation 'and 'serving as troop commander at two American camps jn France, Faubus came home in May, 1946. Completing 'an. assignment as assistant judge advocate at Camp Campbell, Ky,, he went back to Huntsv'ille. He was separated as a major, a>anj« he still holds jn the Infantry flegerve, Faubus had.been most frugal .during his war-years.. Most of his pay check was sent home to his wife, the . former Miss Alta Hoskins of.Japton, Madison County. While surveying possible business .fields he w a n g 1 e d a postmastership through the efforts of, Congressman J. W. Trimble of Berryville , '• He bought the Madison Coun,., ty Record in March, 1947. That was quite a step for 3 man Who had no experience in the news"' paper business. Perhaps he was like other persons who hke to write but have no outlet for their essays, Apparently it was a go°d deal, because the Record's circulation had increased to 3,750 in 1951—said to be the third largest subscription list among Arkansas weeklies, -That's a lot of papers for a town of 1,000 population. "I haven't had time to check .the list for 1952.'' Faubus said. He has served as administrative assistant to the governpr and as highway director since June I, Resigning as postmaster four months after becoming a pub* lisher, Faubus went to work for himself and, eventually, tor Sid McMath when the latter became 9 candidate for governor Jn •1948. McMath carried Madison County in both PsmocjratlC P«- nxaries ttiatyear. ^ w W * ., Faubus wf»s appointed to the state Highway -jKpgunJ March, 1949- One day in, 1051 thfcj attended a Commission m?e«PS sit wWfb e»<* ®isf*«F was to* 'formed that he had $100,000 for use on secondary roads in his ' district. t , Commissioner Faubiis arose." * to deliver a speech. "Sorneorje promised the peo-' pie in one of my counties' that a certain secondary road would be paved," he began. "I didn't make the promise, but I went along with it. , "Well, those people v haven't got their pavement yet • and they're beginning to ask questions. I told them that I had « faith in the^roject, I even wqnt so far as to tell them t that, I'd resign from the Commission if they didn't get it. "I just wanted you to know the reason if I ever offer my resignation." It was evident that Faubus, a v comparatively new public servant, was taking his politics sort- . ously. Commissioner A. D. Mason of Camden cautioned against hasty action. "Some of us have a lot more to worry about than you have," Mason said. ' The road In question was a 20-mile strip of State Highway 12 in Benton County. It extended from an intersection with U. S. 71 westward to Gentry. Since he had only $100,000 left for secondary roads in his entire district, Faubus knew that Highway 12 was about'to be left out. The paving prolect would have required more than his entire allotment. Benton County icsidents got their road, however. The Commission met later and allotted $5,000,000 for secondary routes, including Highway 12. Faubus actually did resjgrt from the Commission about that time, Ever since he had accepted the appointment most of his time hnd been occupied with state business. Delegations called to discuss roads. Other persons wiote and telephoned. It was becoming increasingly harder to get his newspaper out on time. Ho reali'/ed, therefore, that he would need a salaried job to remain in Iho state's service. So he was glad to accept when the governor offered the administrative assistant's post. His newspaper is being published by an employe whom h,9 trained. Faubus was selected by G°V" ernojr McMath to succeed Highway Director Olen S.
