Ed Keane boasted last week over his radio program that he could pick a bale of cotton in a week. Texas cotton men took one look »t his 145-pound frame and snorted that If he could make good his claim they would give him $1.600 in prizes. • Last night, one day ahead of B schedule, Keane finished the job. He picked 1,540 pounds of seed cotton. James Gardner, Junior Chamber of Commerce chairman of Blytheville's contest, wired an in' vltation to Keane today. In the invitation, Gardner reasoned that Keane could possibly win $1,000 in cash for a mere two- hour picking chore. The Associated Press quoted Keane today as saying that he might not go back to work at the radio station." "I have come to like life in the open air," he said. Un-American Activities Group Told of Spy Ring's Work \VASHINGTON, Aug. 9.(AP)—Japan's top investigating officer testified today the Russians knew a month before Pearl Harbor of the Japanese plan to strike at the United States and Britain in the Pacific. The House Un-American Activities committee drew this testimony from Mitsusada Yoshikawa, chief of the special investigating bureau of the Japanese attorney general's olfice. The House group and a Senate subcommittee were simultaneously holding separate Hearings revolving about activities of a Soviet spy ring, headed by Richard Sorge, which operated in Japan before and during world War II. Before the senators, Maj. Gen. Charles Willoughby testified he sought in 1943 to "unmask" the activities of members of this spy ring but was overruled by military authorities in Washington. Yoshikawa testified that Sorge's spy apparatus sent a message to Moscow early in October. 1941. while U.S.-Japanese peace talks were going on in Washington. He quoted it as adivsing that "i( America refuses to compromise by the middle of October. Japan will attack America, the Malay countries. U.S. to Sign Jap Treaty Despite Soviet Action WASHINGTON.

Willoughby, former military iti- elligencc chief under Gen. Douglas VlacArthur, .gave his testimony be- ore the Senate internal security •ubcommlttee. It is looking into he question of whether there have been subversive influences on U.S. oreign policy. Willoughby said "the best legal American lalent in Tokyo" had ap- Jroved as proper evidence a report laming writer Guenlher Slein and he late Agnes Smedley as members of a Soviet spy ring in Japan. He said Mrs. Smedley conducted L smear campaign" against the •eport, which he had made public, and that "the war Department >ublio relations officer, in my recollection, and the secretary of war's oflice. then under Mi-. Royall" squelched the report as a result. He said the report met a fate of 'indirect repudiation" when these men "indicaled this repot never should have been published." Kenneth C. Royall. now a New York and Washington lawyer, was secrelary of war at the time. "No action ever was taken," Willoughby said. "Smedley never sued for libel (as she had threatened), ind the case died for lack of further attention." The committee has taken testimony that both Mrs. Smedley and were connected with the Institute of Pacific Relations, private research organization founded in the 1920's with Ihe announced objective of., .studying Far : Eastern Stefu was "thor- . ^ ,, .Siciled" in the spy ring.

When Willoughby mentioned Stein, Robert Morris, subcommittee counsel,' noted that previous testimony hud linked Stein with the IPR.

Willoughby said Slein was rested this spring by French cret police on a charge of Soviet espionage and was deported from France. Asked how he got this Information. Willoughby said he learned it "through official channels." Willoughby said Stein was "no present at the time" the Sovie spy ring name to the notice of Japanese intelligence agents during the war.

The charge was contained in a note addressed to Vice Adm. O Turner Joy, senior Allied delegate to the Kaesong talks. It was signed b' Lt. Gen. Nam II, top Red delegate. Admiral Joy replied that the Red charge was "completely without validity."

But as the festival went inlo its fifth day many Communist youths were still coming over, often employing ruses to elude their pollen guards or circumvent street barricades and transportation hindrances.

City Clarifies Action In 'Borrowing' $32,000 From County Turnback Replacing ot sidewalks and drive- ays and the installation of new orm sewers In BlythevUle has oostcd the street widening pro- ect's cost by approximately $18.000, ily Clerk \v. I. Malin said this icrning in clarlficalion of the ity's action In "borrowing" $32.000 csterday from a future tnx tllrn- ack. The additional cost, over Ihe orig- ual contract which called for an pproximately $42,000 contract, was iroughl about, Mr. Malin said, when he city agreed to replace sidewalks ,nd driveways v,'h!ch were torn up luring the widening of city streets. This upped the cost by approximately $9.000, he said, and storm ewer work cost another $9,000. Sewer work was done on Eleventh Street between Walnut and Chickasawbs and Eighth street be- ' ween Walnut and Chickasawba, where new lines were installer!, arid at Seventh and Ash Streets where new line was run south to the old.JLC and B railnia.d and bigger catch basins were Installed at Hie atter imori-ection. accdrtline to ity Engineer Claude Alexander. . Relief Expected areas all have been "trou- le spots" and city officials said the new lines should give much- needed relief in those areas. When the original street widening project was let, there was 528,000 in the parking meter luncl which was earmarked, for street widening purposes and the city planned to finance the rest of the project' through a "loan" such as that made yesterday when the county turned over $32,000 to the city as an advance on tax turnback U> be made this fall from 1950 property revenues. At the time the street program was approved the Council voted for the $42.000 project although it was known that present parking meter funds would not finance the entire Job. Plans For I.Dan Made This was done with plans to borrow the needed additional money afler Mayor Doyle Henderson told the Council March 30: "I'm sure cither bank In town will lend us enough to complete the program." According to state law. however, a. city can not borrow money on which interest must be paid except through a bond issue which must be approved by a vote ol the citizens. Consequently, the J32.000 "loan" was arranged yesterday. Of the S32.000. Mr. Malin said $12.500 was paid into the general fund, this sum being that amount due the fund according to the mill' age mclhod of apportioning county turnbacks among the various city funds. S 10.500 lo SIrcct Turd The remaining S19.500 went directly to the .street for use on the street widening project and is to be repaid from fulure parking meter revenues, Mr Malin added. Mr. Malin further said that the 532,000 received yesterday by the city was all of the money it will receive which the city can spend as It chooses. All other money received this fall as a county turnback will go into city .linking funds such as City Hall. Blvtheville Hospital. Library. Parks and the Firemen's Pension and Relief Fund.
