PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLIJ; (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Figure in Pickeling Test BEJMFID Case In Little Mining Town May Establish National Precedent l!y NBA .Service FAYETTEVILLE, W. Va., Apr. 4. —A case which eventually may answer the Question "When is :i picket not a picket?" is about Ui be heard In county court here. The case, involving validity of Fayettcvillc's new clly picketing ordinance, will be heard on April 8, nnd Is expected lo lie appealed to higher courts for n linal decision. The ordinance In question prohibits picketing of a plant when; u majority of employes have not indicated either membership in any union or any desire to bargain collectively. The decision, if carried high enough into the courts, may .set, u precedent affecting local picketing laws throughout the country, ninny of which have been passed In an effort, to mark a line between legal . and Illegal, demonstrative nnd coercive, rightful and wrongful picketing. C. I. 0. Involved Fayeltcvllle. population 1750, age 102, Is In the very heart of Ihe great West Virginia coal field. That field is 10f> per cent organized by the United Mine Workers, foundation .stone of the C. I. O. The Wholesale nnd'Rolnll Clerks' and Employes' Union is one of the new affiliates of tlic C. I. O. Us method ol organising in the coal towns, where the coal miners dominate because the towns depend on their trade, brought jiboul the present picketing lest case. Organizers for Hits union began approaching chambers of commerce, business clubs, or merchants direct, nnd presenting closed shop contracts covering all employes. Some of them were signed, after which employes had to Join (lie union or lose their jobs. Some Ualkefl The plan worked fine, except Hist In almost every town two or three merchants refused lo sign such a dosed shop agreement without nn expression of the wishes ol their employes, picketing by United Mine Workers' members immediately followed, with attempts to boycott. Streams of picket lines descended on tlie mine towns. Crowds jammed Hie slrecls lo walcli the demonstrations, and minor disturbances followed. Police were unable to handle the crowds. Early in February the clerks' Union" came lo paycltevllle with the s^me program. The Piiyeltevlllc Business Men's Club, a two-year- old''organization of business and professional men and women, held Itmg sessions and came cut wllh tills decision. ' '•The business firms of Payetle- villc will bargain as a unit with Ihe c.'I.' O. or any other union when and if more than 50 per cent of Ihe clerks of Fayetlevlile signify such bargaining lo be Ihelr desire, this desire to be shown first by Ihelr ami affiliation with sin-It a Onion," Passed Ordinance Three days later the town council hacked up this position with rui ordinance "Forbidding the picketing of any firm . . . unless and until the employes of Hint firm have been oryanized under Ihe lerms of Die National Labor Relations Act." Mayor Prank H. inlernvels this ordinance lo mean that n majority of the ivcrker.s- must organize voluntarily before bargaining shall begin, j. R. Caldwell. president of the Business Men's Club and owner of the Fayelle Feed Company, put it Hits way: "We arc offering you the apples if you want to pick them up. But we positively tire not going lo -pick them up for you!" Picketing scheduled for February 21 laired to materialize, and n lest case had lo be arranged. Howard Brown, organizer for the Clerk's Union, picketed the Kroger .store and was immediately arrested. Organizer Fined Enuing the week pending h(x trial in mayor's court, organization efforts were mactc. Only three responded to a called meeting, and none signed. Protests against the ordinance flowed In from tlie surrounding miners. On March 8 the courlroom was , crowded with 400 people. Mayor Erazie sentenced Brown to a fine •' of $25 and 30 days in jail. Brown i appealed and was freed on bond I Judge H. E Dillon. Jr., West Virginia's youngest circuit jurist elected a year ago at 32, will hear the case in Payette county circuit Court on April 8. prom there the I case undoubtedly TVIII go to the West Virginia Supreme court. In the meantime there has been no picketing in Fayettcville .Threatened boycotts have failed to materialize, other nearby cities! arc availing the decision, and will probably pass similar ordinances If this one Is upheld. Carried still higher, beyond the -slate field and into Ihe national courts, Ihe Payellevillo picketing case might well set a precedent in defining the somewhat hazy field of the legal rights of pickets.

Commercial frog fanning will be attempted for the first time In Hits section by Major Curtis J. Utllc, who lias nlready laid the foundation for what Jic believes will prove an Interesting and profitable busl- less. Major Little recently completed two large concrete vats and has ft third under construction at his five acre place on Highway 51 several miles north of here. In these vnls and in others tu be; ) built Inter he hopes lo produce •Jumbo" frogs on a commercial Kale within the next four years. Tile Idea has been considered by Major uttle since 1917, when lie was temporarily xliiUoni-d at an army encampment in Alexandria, La. There were a (jreut many bullfrogs In that vicinity and one of Ihe sports of Major Little and oilier olllcers was frog liunllng. Many of these frogs they were able to capture in nets A'lthoul Injuring them nnd these were placed In an Improvised pen and kepi until they were wanted for frog suppers. At, time, Mr. Little .says, he had several hundred frogs In lib pen. and the delicacy was available »t all limes. When Major Little ncqulrr-d the house and small tract near here last year he laid plans for the frog farm venture. He obtained information concerning proper methods of handling Ihe frogs, the eggs, tadpoles and young frogs. Now. he hns made the initial step which he hopes will result in his being able to ship frogs in large quantl- lie.s lo various markels. In one pen. which is enclosed in a four foot board fence, there are six fully matured "Southern Jumbo" frogs. They cost $4 each and were especially selected for bleeding purposes. Escli of the females will lay between 10,000 and 20,000 eggs this season in tlie vat and i>en In which they are kept. When these eggs ore laid they are immediately taken to another vnt where they are sunk Into water in small boxes for hatching. If allowed to remain In the pen with the grown frojjs the eggs would be eaten, as Ihe frogs feed on their own egs;s. Wlicn the tadpoles are hatched they are allowed to remain In the vat four or five months until Ihey the OAK LUMBER For Sale—(00,0(10 f(. of gaoil hill oak lumber dcliveri'i! i»r very Invv prices.
