Arkansas Veterans of Foreign Wars ' " in their recent state convention went on record in favor of lowering the voting age from 21 to 18. Their argument in support of such R move is based on the policy of the federal government in inducting 18- year-olds into the armed service in time of war. The reasoning is logical that if a lad of 18 is sufficiently mature to risk his Jife for his country on the field of baUle, ' then he should also be sufficiently ma' ture in judgment to cast his vote in the selection of the officials who will govern his country in times of war and pcaije. Perhaps the voters in the nation •would do a better job in selecting their officials if those 18 to 21 had a voice at the polls. It should be remembered, too, good government does not rest on the mere fact that free peoples have a voice in government. They must, exercise that voice, and unless the youngsters turn , out in greater numbers than their elders, this nation faces the prospect of rule by the minorities who do go to the polls. Political exerts do not find it difficult to agree that a larger turnout of voters in the last general election doubtless would have changed the outcome of the election and in line with the pre- election forecasts of the pollsters whose . sampling of trends appears to have been accurate—except that too many of their • samples, were obtained from potential voters who did not bother to exercise • 'i their privilege on election day. rjuly ;;Tyra Fourth Reminder: nny Stalks Abroad id«« of co-operation. Yet while extolling the glories of co-operative living, practicing Communists in Russia and other nations have ruthlessly stamped out liberty and real co-operation amonjr peoples wherever they could. Communist idealogy is a hideous deception conceived to lure millions to the destruction of their freedoms. Communists have adopted the idea of cooperation only to dehase it and corrupt it to their own tyrannical ends. Not many Americans are deceived by this elaborate fraud. Some who are • fooled are blinded to the realities by genuine grievances they nurse against our admittedly imperfect society. Feeling robbed of their American birthright, they unwittingly make themselves servants of a tyrant who, at a whim, would crush not only their liberties but their lives. Independence Day is a good time to vow anew never to let this tyrant or any other set his cruel boot down on our soil. And to remember, too, that so lovig as we know him for what he is few of us are likely to welcome his coming. This one called a Communist we already know. Need there be any panic, then, when a few of his henchmen are unmasked ? Come Back Tuesday VIEWS OF OTHERS The Anderson Plan '* On the Fourth of July we celebrate 7.i the winning of independence as a nation. 1", This day- in 1776—was the moment in history when a great enterprise founded 'if on freedom was begun. We Americans of tlie niid-'-JOlh century are the current custodians of those liberties born 173 years ago. We and our forefathers have seen them challenged by tyrannies that have come and gone in the world. We have guarded freedom well against these tests. But the idea of tyranny dies hard. Crushed, it finds new forms and new tools and rises again. When it grows strong, it seeks to stifle liberty wherever it exists. Fov the heady draughts of free air are poisonous fumes to the tyrant. Today tyranny ia astrile part of the world once more. In its new dress it ia - called communism. It has a strong weapon, a philosophy of government that professes to look toward a great, co-operative society welding the mass of men together. Armed with this weapon, Communists have shrewdly muddled the world's . thinking. They have made a starkly reactionary system appear progressive lo some, thus trapping idealists, inlcllec- "•' tu»ls and others easily drawn lo the i The Anderson cotton control plan which t Stnilt Agriculture subcommittee his unimmou&W approved Is a compromise. Senator Anderson, the New Mexico Democrat who once served secretary of Agriculture, says he expects lull approval of the Senate committee within a few dtys. Representative Pace of Georgia who earlier had. opposed the plan. Is reported to have withdrawn his opposition, and will Introduce the bill in the House. The bill provides that the national cotton marketing quota ihall be not less than 10,000.000 bales, or 1,000,000 bales leu than the estimated domestic consumption plus exports for the marketing year ending In the calendar year when the quota is proclaimed. The national minimum acre- ace allotment would be set at 22,500,000 acres. The average of the planted acreages in 1945, 1946, 1947 and 1948 would be used as the base for allotments for 19M) and 1951. In 1948 the national harvested cotton acreage waa 22,168,000 acies, giving a total production of 14,868,369 bales. The average national yield per acre was 313 pounds. In Arkansas toe average per acre yield was 428 pounds—almost a bale to the acre. A high national return shows clearly that to avoid a disastrous surplus the control will have to be on an acreage basis. The Anderson bill follows rather closely the plan proposed by the Belt Wide Cotton Comcrence in Memphis In April. All cotton states, including Arizona and California, were represented. The conference appointed two delegates Irom each cotton state to study control. Harvey R. Adams of West Memphis, who is secretary-manager ot the Agricultural Council of Arkansas, was one of the Arkansas delegates, and he was later elected secretary of the steering committee to work with members of Congress ami the Department of Agriculture In drawing up a plan. The entire cotton industry has had a part in development of the Anderson plan. Farm groups which were not directly concerned with cotton production have been consulted. The Anderson plan is the result of many revisions and great effort to harmonize all the various interests involved. Senators from all cotton states have expressed their approval of the plan. Ark&naaTU who keep close watch on cotton legislation say they believe it will give us a fair share iti acreage allotments. "The Anderson plan is the most equitable one that could be worked out," says Harvey R. Adams. "I don't see how a fairer program could be developed."—ARKANSAS GAZETTE. Canada and U.S. Set Example In Harmony Between Nations PETER EDSONS Washington News Notebook Texan, on Losing End of Panama Revolt, Writes Life Story While Awaiting Trial WASHINGTON (NBA) — Wilson W. Brown, 35-year-old Port Worth, Tex,, ex-major in the U. S. Air Ttorce. has told all about-the big Panama reolution of last Easter. Brown la one of 22 conspirators rounded up after a futile attempt overthrow the government of Panama the easy way. Brown has been wriiing his life story for the Panama newspapers, and it's a dilly. tt out-brags all the bragging ever done by any Texan away from home. Brownie ha.s also turned state's evidence. But lie still languishes in the Panama policy nnd his future is dark. The U. S. Embassy is doing what it can to see that he is not discriminated against he is an. American but it can't do much. The young man is pretty well known around Washington. He came to the capital to do publicity for Josh Lee. then a new man from Oklahoma, now a member of the Civil Aeronautics Boarrt. Brownie was then 20. and the way lie tells it, he had just polished off the tour-year course at University at Oklahoma in three years, leading his class. He bought a *9 duplicating machine and started turning ovit a column which he placed In 72 Oklahoma papers. He took payment In political advertising space and in six months—so he says—he got Josh Lee elected senator. Turned Airline Promoter Brownie was 'definitely destined tor bigper things. He got a publicity job with Thomas Fortune Ryan III trying to promote a new airline told him to make a world air transport system out of ISO planes the government had just confiscated from the commercial airlines. Then they made him a captain, later a major. Another of his assignments was to handle Latin American relations at the San Francisco charter conference. He was then a major. (One angle that he forgot to put in his life story here is that be donned his gold oak leaf before his commission went through, and got into a peck of trouble.) Out of uniform In 1945, he did publicity for Eastern Airlines for a time, but bigger tilings beckoned. One day a mysterious strange]- called him to come to Broadway and 57th St. There he was led to an office where he was introduced to the head of the Jewish underground, who claimed to have smuggled 40.000 refugees info Palestine. This m?n offered Brownie five per rent commission on a deal to buy 54.000.000 worth of arms In Mexico. fo>- the Palestine Army. Brownie says he completed thLs deal, but his confederates cheated him out of his commission and he never got a cent, fn Mexico, however, he met Araulfo and Roberto Arias of Panama.

Written for NBA Service • Angina pectoris means literally pain in the chest. It Is usually caused by a diseased condition of the arteries which supply blood to the heart muscle. These blood vessels are called the coronary arteries. The pain develops when not enough blood is passing through them to supply the needs of the heart muscle. The hardened coi'onaries do allow some blood to pass through. Consequently the pain usually does not develop when the victim Is resting or exercising only slightly: it comes on when the heart muscle Is working harder and needs greater quantities of blood. A person w ho has angina pec- loris has to learn how much exercise he or she can take without producing symptoms, in addition to the pain, these often include a feeling of anxiety, sweating, shortness of breath and sometimes other signs. Life Expfctancy II was formerly thought that a person with angina pectoris could not avoid suffering a great discomfort. But according to recent studies, the average life expectancy after the first -ten of ansinn is about eight to 10 years, and some live more than 25 years. In addition to the improved outlook which has been uncovered, methods of improved maitaeement are being developed constantly, in which the amount and kind of exercise is more closely adapted to the patient. Until research workers have discovered a means of preventing hardening of the arteries, angina pectoris will continue to occur. Tt is well to realize, however, that while this Is a serious condition, it does not mean the end of all good things. Sensible adjustments to the new circumstances Is necessary, of course, but frequently this can be accomplished with great success. * • • Note: Dr. Jordan Is unable to answer individual questions from readers.

Anything which is close to the heart of Canada is close to the , heart of America.

On the strength of this joints, "credit" a deal was \vith two Canadians who owned bring in from Costa Rica 300 rifles,' 100 machine guns, ammunition and hand grenades. They all w»nt down to the coast at Chiriqui to meet the boat, but they never saw it. All they found were a few members of the Caribbean Legion, who said they had 18 machine guns and 11 rifles. Well, that wasn't enough to start a revolution with, so they all started back to Panama. Brown relates that he was driving a station wagon belonging to Roberto Arias. At a traffic check point, a policeman stepped out and said he had orders to arrest anyone in that car. With a couple of police officers. Brown was taken back to the place where the Caribbean Legion boys were hiding. Two shots fired into the jungle brought them out- Later the police found where the 18 machine guns and the 11 rifles were cached. The great Panama revolution was Tor gnu running, but the deal fell through when Flyrm grew suspicious ol what they were up to, Aimvay. Brown went to Panama early in 1949.
