BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS ' THl DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOL. XMIL—NO. 21 Blythevllle Daily New* Blytbsvllle courtcr BlythevUle Herald Miululppl Vklley Lc*<tor mA'THEVIU-K, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, AP1UL 15, 19.10 SINGLE COPIE3 FIVE. CENTS: RAN TO DROP CHARGE AGAINST RUSS Meat Situation Brings Action By Government Legitimate Slaughter Places To Get Stock As Result Of Order WASHINGTON, April 15. (UP> — Three government agencies aeled today to end the nation's black market in meat. The Agriculture Department and the Office of Price Administration made public an awaited order channeling livestock to established, legitimate slaughterers, who recently have found themselves unable to buy animals for slaughter. The Justice Department opened an investigation of reports' that many packers have been making false subsidy claims. Tlie Agriculture - OPA program will provide a channeling system designed to give each legitimate slaughter an opportunity to kill the same portion of the available supply of cattle, calves, and hogs as lie slaughtered in 1944. Theamoim of livestock which slaughters mas kill will be adjusted as rapidly the supply changes, the agencies said. Price Administrator Paul Porter said "the answer to equitable distribution of meat supplies is not tile abandonment of price control as suggested by some." "We are not going to ask tlie American people to pay tribute to a legalized black market," he said. "The val answer lies in a system of controls at the source of supply which will give established slaughterers more nearly their cu.s- toiiiRi-y volume of livestock and provide for better distribution of meat supplies at ceiling prices to retail stares." Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson said the new program was" "in reality a share-the-livc- stock. program." He pointed out that many packers have had difficulty gettir.K normal supplies of Uvc*i<jck' ai'~cvfiUng .prices. v Th e agencies hope that it will also, reduce blnck market operations or those who have recently pone into the slaughtering business and tlio.se who have increased their slaughter greatly during the past few months. This is not the first time that GPA has bad quotas over the slaughter of livestock. Such controls,; in effect during tlie war, were suspended lasl Scp- .tember. Since that time, many slaughterers have been killing much more, than their normal proportion of the available .supply of livestock, while others have been unable to obtain even half their customary proportion of total slaughter. The new controls will be eifecUve In a tew days, the agencies said. Tlie Justice Department plans to look into meat black marketers who • reportedly have been receiving illegal subsidy payments from the tiovernment. House Approves Draft Holiday And Exemption Of Teen-Agers WASHINGTON, April 15. (U.P.)—The House to<l;iy KCtl awl sent to iho Senate legislation to provide for si rivo-month draft holiday after May 15 and prohibit the induction of tcen-.iscrs. The bill was approved 290 to 108 after an unsuccessful effort by Rep. Dcwoy Short, R., Mo., to kill the bill by .sending it back to the House Military Affairs Committee. Short's proposal was rejected 135 to 74. In approving the bill to keep the Selective Service Act alive until Feb. 15, 1947, but slopping inductions from May 15 to Oct. 15, the election conscious House sidestepped a record vote on a straight draft extension. Administration leaders hoped that the Senate would re-write-the bill to give the Army its requested straight year's extension of Ihe Act. -* House leaders predicted the incm- »rship, acutely uware of the com- ng elections, would try to dodge recorded roll call vote on the extension bill. Most members feu themselves uncomfortably squeezed between ttic unpopularity of the draft and President Truman's assertion that Its extension wns vital to the nation's security. The cry of "politics" resounded throughout debate nnd was especially loud when Ihe House votec the draft "holiday" and boosted the minimum age for Inductions Iron 18 to 20. The House wns also expected lo pas:; today still another bill to sugar-coat peacetime military service by boosting the pay of military personnel, as high as 50 per cent in Abner Ashcraft Dies Yesterday Services To Be Held At Cooter For Victim Of Highway Accident Funeral services for Abner J. Ashcraft of Cooler, Mo., who died yesterday afternoon at Walls Hospital, will be held tomorrow afternoon at the Cooter Baptist Church. The 40-yeur-okl marshal of Cooler died of injuries received in a Highway 61 accident March 26 when his car struck a truck parked on the highway about- 200 yards north of the Arkansas-Missouri state line. The Rev. H. W. Pierce, pastor, will conduct the services at 2:30 o'clock willi burial to be at Mount Zion Cemetery. Active pallbearers will be Floyd Wagster, O. D. Bonds, Bond Cawson, Paul Cooper, Jerry Holly and Lonnle Jordan, all of Cooter. Honorary pallbearers will be Joe Russell. Ashliii Williamson, James Cassidy, Jack Rushing, A. L. Beckham and Ruel Asher, all of Cooler The tragedy occurred when Mr Asbcraft was en route to Blythc vllle to attend a tractor meeting John Pointer, Negro "driver of the case of Army privates. Administration leaders, who had fought for R year's extension ol the present draft act, hoped the Senate would re-write the House bill and remove at least the provisions for the "holiday" and the ban on 'teen age draft. Supporters of the holiday argued that passage of the higher pay bill would enable the armed forces to obtain needed manpower through voluntary enlistments. The bill would extend the Selective Service Act for nine months, until Feb. 15, 1947, but at the same time would: 1. Suspend a}l Inductions between May 15 (when the present, law expires) and Oct. 15. Drafting would start after .this "holiday" only if Anti-Violence Ruling Upheld Four Sentenced For Attack On Bus Driver Here Lose Appeal LITTLE RpCK. April 15. (UP) — The Arkansas Supreme Court today again upheld the state's 1943 nntl- violence statute in n case appealed from the Mississippi County Circuit court. In the lower court. Frank Gurc- iii and others were found guilty of violating the act and were given one year sentences in the state penitentiary. The alleged violence took place Sept. 15, 1915. in tlie Chickasawba District of Mississippi County when the appellants prevented A. L. Cobb from driving a bus. Finding no prejudicial errors, the high court upheld the lower court's decision. However, a dissenting opinion was given by Associate Justice R. W. Robbins who held that there was no proof that, the purpose of the -violence wns to cause Cobb to stop work. Robbins yiolnt-' eel out that the violence against Cobb could have been for some other reason, in which case the charge would be unlawful assault and not a violation of the state law. In further action, the Supreme court, affirmed a Garland Circuit Court verdict granting adequate remuneration to Jane Colbert from the Workmen's Compensation Commission. Miss Colbert allegedly suffered total permanent clissability from dermatitis contracted while she worked as a teller in tlie Arkansas National Bank in Hot Springs. The court held that she hadTjeen permanently disabled by reason of nn occupational disease. Another case involving the Workmen's Compensation Commission was appealed from the Garland on ttie highway lo wnit for an approaching car. before turning left into the Webb driveway. Mr. Ashcrnft. conscious after the accident, said he did not see the tnicfc until only a short distance nway and that he attcmptea to swerve but the car struck the rear corner of the parked vehicle. Deputy Sheriff Melvin Clark of Steele, Mo., said the rear light of the truck was unlighted. Critically injured when his car overturned and was practically demolished. Mr. Ashcrnft hnd six ribs fractured, his lung punctured and severe lacerations on the face and shoulder. He seemed improved after an operation and was removed to his :iomc April 9 but complications developed Saturday night. An abscess formed on tils lung, which caused his death at 1 o'clock, following his return to the hospital Saturday at 1 p. m Widely known throughout Southeast Missouri, he had served as marshal of Cooler 14 years and also Mar. t IM iimu .

The ceilings nrc 1,070,000 for the Army, 558,000 for the Navy and 108,000 for the Marine Corps. 5. Reaffirms the Intent of Congress for deferring of essential agricultural workers.

"Ebb" Huffman served 30 successive years &s justice of peace of Hickman Township which includes Huffman Community, settled by his family. Tills was back in the days when a justice of the peace always was one of the most respected men in the section. During much of that time he and constable served as the prin- cipni law enforcement agencies of the surrounding section and maiij Circuit court by the Larnar Bath House after the lower court had granted Howard McCloud benefits ;for Injuries suffered while he work- td as a niasseur.

This grand old gentleman, who is the sole surviving member of a family of five children, has difficulty reconciling himself to the wage scale of today. With labor often being paid more than SI per hour, he contrasts that with the SO cents daily wage he received as a young man. Owner of 120 acres of the rich delta land in the Huffamn community, he and a small amount of labor hired cleared from the forest this now-valuable farm. Although he received little formal education, because of unsettled conditions which followed the war. he maintained a great interest in education and did everything possible to Improve the facilities ol his community. He served as a member ot the school board of District No. 7 for a number of years. I.evecs and drainage district projects are of great interest to him.
