MONDAY, JULY 17, 1944 BLYTHBV1LLB (ARK.); COURIER NEWS Turk Will Hot Confirm Story Of Quintuplet s BiruVAN, Turkey, July 17. (UP) 7.-United Press Correspondent Al AJUInbesh recently traveled hy plane *lo the mountain'region In southeastern Turkey, where the Tlgri. and tlic Euphrates rise, determined to track down reports that quin tuplets had been born to a nioun lain family. He traveled on Arab ponies IUK made his way through heavy forests nnd along primitive trails to rend the village of Blrivan. He discovered that Hifat Ag Chelik will never admit, that III wife had quintuplets last month in their goatskin-covered cave home, because quintuplets arc had form In the- Turkish mountain country. There iriiiy never be any proof that quintuplet boys were born and lived on the .legendary site of the Garden of Eden. Bald Aga Chehk, shaking his beard wrathfully: "No offers of fmne nnd wealth could induce me to admit such a disgrace. And even if my wife were the victim of such satantu.misfor- tune that she should have quintuplets, I will never soil her beautiful name by admitting it." Aga Chelik is the son of a famous tribal fighter, Halil. He and his wife, Badrlyc, have hnd ill-wishers sneer "at them when they venture out on village streets, now that they are reported lo be the unfortunate parents of the almost mylhl- .cal "quintuplets." The natives of this region always have frowned upon multiple births. Sometimes the unfortunate mother of twins commits suicide or is even murdered. But the wily villagers swear by "all the Turks in Turkey" that there arc quintuplets, all boys, all alive, and all but two are hidden by Aga Chclik's relatives, high in the moim- MV.'ri'rce of the babies were spirited "* iivwy dining the night, shortly after they were born, an "old woman of great wisdom" said. Now they will be raised by tribesmen who herd goats between the villages of Arada and Viranshiti on the Syrian frontier. Loynl villagers supported Aga Chclik's story thai his wife gave birth to twins, "only two. only two. it Is all right to have two children." he said, pleading for understanding with his huge dark eyes, circled with worry. Correspondent Alalicsh begged a Christian Turk, whose story leaked out when a priest carried it to Ankara, to tell the truth. Atabesh explained lie had come from Ankara on a long and difficult journey. Aga Chelik sneered. He would not believe that Premier Shukru Sara- cioglu had offered to fly the quints to Ankara for the best of medical care, that the Turkish red crescent Shorty—A Mitey Man Is He oclal welfare In the million cabinet (o the vice prosl- L>nuy.

EDITORIAL Amity Owl, July 6, 1914 Never in the history of politics in Arkansas has a candidate for the higli office of Governor forged ahead in the minds of the people as J. Bryan Sima, who was the last to announce for that office, yet his name is constantly on the lips of the voters. There is a reason for this popularity, and it is in the platform on which this man hopes to win. He has promised, and we believe he will fulfill that promise, that he will reduce expenses of our state government which has been increasing each year for several years, and will apply the savings to decrcasinff the tax burden of the people of the state. Mr. Sims has been connected with the auditorial department of the state and is thoroughly familiar with its financial condition. He knows just where the reductions can be made and why expenses have been top much in every department. ; Another net of Mr. Sima that has made him friends, is that of resigning from his office when he became a candidate. Ko could have held on and 'drawn his salary during his campaign as many others have done, but he did not see it that way. This act within itself displays a high sense of loyalty to his state, If he ia elected our governor, he will carry his promises into office with him and the state will benefit thereby. This article is written, not as a political advertisement, nor does it make us Mr. Sims' campaign manager in this place, nor do we expect any remuneration for what wo have said, but it is written in a spirit of fairness and because we feel that this man has the ability, the will and the courage to do what he says he will 'do. His hands are not tied by any obligations, and he will be free to administer the governor's office for the people of the state. SIMS Is the Only Candidate (or Governor Who Seeks Promotion Solely on His Merits and Experience Sims' ability lias b'ccn recognized and praised by governors, ' and leading newspapers. His honesty and courage arc mailers of record. His public and Iris private life is above reproach. His campaign has been clean. ,. V ^ *" ! All Over Arkansas, It's , V J.
