Accepts Resignation Of Career Interrupted By Serious Illness; Successor Unnamed WASHINGTON, Nov. 27. (UP) — Secretary of Stale Cordcll Hull has resigned. The rumor has been going around Washington for some time, but President Roosevelt makes it official today. The President told a news conference that he has, with very deep regret, accepted the resignation of jthc ailing 73-year-old statesman. Hull has been in the hospital since mid-October. And'Mr. Roosevelt .says that both Hull and his doctors feel that his complete recov- "...' would be retarded if he were to continue his heavy respanslbiti- ti(. .w head of the Department of St* '.. , To Kcniain As Adviser However, President Roosevelt said th the white-haired Tcnnessean w: remain in Washington as an o iinistration adviser on foreign ' Icy. Mr. Roosevelt says Hull will stay i for a long time to carry on and :velop the American'plans for an international peace organization. Hull's resignation will become effective when his successor is ap- nointed. meanwhile, Undersecretary of State Stettinius will continue as acting secretary. Ever since the President took of- -flce in 1933, Hull has been at his side, guiding the Department-of ..State,through the troubled.wa'r-and pre-war years. Now a new man' w|li take up. the momentous job. The President r.iiike any state- merit on who .will sucked-HtiU'-Mjiit - Washington- obserVES-'alreaay^are - speculating. : ..'-...'. .'".,' ..Byrnes Mentioned Many,believe that. War -'Mobilization Director James. Byrnes may be" chosen for the jotx Pressure fir Byrnes to succeed Hull comes largely from conserva- livc groups in Congress. However many New Dealers are rooting for Vice President Henry Wallace as a successor. And other potential candidates include. Stettinius, United States ambassador' to Britain John' Winapt, and former Undersecretary of State Suniner'Wel'lc's. " But no matter who Is chosen to nil the job, observers admit that Hull will be missed in the State Department. He has served as secretary of'state longer than any other man in the nation's history. And the department has inevitably picked up some of the flavor of his personality, it will miss his gentle, kindly courtesy, Ills slight lisp and his diplomatic ability. Denounced Jap Envoys Few Americans will ever forget the fury of the old Tennessean, when on December 7 1941 he received the Jap envoys bearing a diplomatic note at the moment news of the Jap sneak attack on Pearl ,. Harbor came in. Said Hull: "In nil my 50 years of public service, I .never have seen a document so crowded with infamous falsehoods and distortion." Admiral Nomura and his partner walked out with the charges of treachery ringing m their cars. Hull's torrent was only a foretaste of the American military blitz that was yet to come And even more than this, America will miss those things which Hull stood for. For though he grew up in a Tennessee mountain lo" cabin, he was an internationalist to he bone. He always felt strongly that nations should be good neighbors. He hns long advocated and worked for an international organization to keep the peace.'lfe fou-ht hard and well to eliminate tariffs And the reciprocal trade program was his pet. It was Hull who turned President Roosevelt's good neighbor theory into practice. And when he arrived for a conference In Montevideo in 1933, he amazed the more formal by introducing himself simply as "Hull of the United Stales" Tlie name stood for a lot, for courage, vision, integrity and greatness.

Will Ask Legislature To Simplify Ballot LITTLE ROCK, Nov. 27 (UP) — The 1945 session of the Arkansas Legislature will be asked to change the form of the Arkansas general election ballot to eliminate confusing features which make it difficult for voters to mark the ballot as they intend to. Secretary of State C. G. Hall says lie will suggest such a change 'to the Legislature. Hall says there is a lack of clearness in the Arkansas form which makes it difficult for many people to be sure they are casting their votes as they Intend. And he adds: "Our system of requiring all candidates and acts to be scratched out except the one for which the vote is cast is confusing and unnecessary." Hall says he will suggest that the Legislature study general election ballots used in other states before drawing up statutes for a now Arkansas form.

Sixteen cut-offs on the bends of the river have shortened the river 170 miles below Cairo, with length of the river from Cairo to the head of Passes—100 miles below New Orleans—now 880 miles Instead of .1050 miles, Its normal length.
