The Bums were the victims ot a 6 to 0 whitewashing Job at the hands of Harry Qumbert and DOPE BUCKET BY J. F. niKND ItllSS HAS CHANGED I was in the middle of a heavy Saturday mail when Earl Buckley interrupted with the announcement that a "lieutenant wanted to see S'oll," Running a trifle behind schedule, due to a laic train, and anxious to get caught up I asked him who It was. If it were someone whom I knew I felt reasonably sure lhat I stood a chance to guess what he wanted. But Earl eHnlhial- ed all chance for a standoff when lie stated "he was a stranger; never saw him before." Enroute to the front my' mind ran riot trying to figure oul who It possibly could be. But by the time I had completed the some 25 steps (he puzzle remained unsolved. The "stranger" proved to bo Lieut. Russell Mosley, of the Army Air Forces, former Blythcvllle Chick great and inter a standout at Ihe University of Alabama. Handsome In bis smart uniform, Ills silver wings pinned at the usual place over his left pocket, and his small gold bar spotless in Ills blouse collar, RIISS tens nn excellent picture of u finely trained flier turned out b v Uncle Sam's air forces. And Russell had changed considerably from the last time I saw him—just before lie left for Shop- paid Field, Texas to be classified. He was thinner, especially In the face and neck. His perfectly fitting cap did something to .his appearance. 1 don't recall .ever hnvlnjr seen lihu with anything on lit head, especially a service cap, and It made him look different. SOME DIDN'T RECOGNIZE After the exchange .of greetings I turned to Earl and asked him if he didn't honestly know who the young officer was. It was some seconds before it dawned on Buck that he was one of "Pop" and Mrs. Mosley's Illustrious boys. RIISS said he must have changed a great dcnl as several persons had failed to recognize him, some whom he was Intimately acquainted.. "I went to see Oscar Bailey at Meads, shook hands with him and had talked to him or some time before lie recognized me", he said. "At least, lhat was my Impression by the way Oscar acted, I passed Eugenia Crawford on the street spoke to her but feel certain she didn't realize who it was. What Is there about me that Is different? Personally, I couldn't find much difference after the several months of training prior to being awarded his wings and commission at Marfa. Texas. He ts the same quiet, serious, studious, unassuming chap who thinks he Is Just about the luckiest guy in the world; still looks upon these last busy, exciting thrilling days, weeks and months as lovely dream. I dropped In to see him at the , scheduled to leave for Del Rio, Texas, for further training—with he, B-afl's. He was comfortably pressed in. a pair of cool pajamas and GI house slippers. He hadn't dressed all day and Indicated he didn't plan to. He lind been away rpm home loo long nnd intended to'make lh e most of these few re- hainlng hours with Mother and Dad, Tommy, Mary Kallicrlue and GOOD TO JJE HOME ,"My, but It Is good to be home", ic beamed. "I guess we don't real- EC how Important home Is until we are forced to be a\vay. I have ihoroughly enjoyed Just silling around the house, doing absolutely willing except read the papers, an jccaslonal magazine." And tlic way ic looker! around the living room when he said it was convincing proof that (he meant every word he said, and then some, even If I didn't know. Russ was pleased over his new assignment and felt thai he received a break when he was selected for duty wit hthc B23. He asked lor It, but so did a lot of oilier fellows who didn't gtt the call, lie expects to be a pilot. Take it from Lieut. Mosley Ihis flying business is great stuff, but defenllcly no soft touch, lie had high praise for his Instructors nnd their thoroughness from start to flnlsh A shcpparri Field to Marfa, via the university of Mimic-sola, Santa Ana, Calif., Ontario, Calif., and Phoenix Ariz. With exception of George Trusty, who recently was here on leave after getting his witijjs and commission, Russ said he wasn't fortunate to run across any boys from home. He bumped into George three times—at Sheppnrd Field, Santa Ana. and on the Iraln en- roule home. He did cross pa His' with some of the boys with whom he played football at Alabama. Modestly jjlvlng much credit to the "Mosley luck", Russ holies It will continue to hold out for the duration. He would like very much to come back home, get that other year at Alabama,' which means more football, of course, then go to work.-, Right now, he has an Important job to do. Look out below Alnolhcr Moslcy is soon lo be on the loose. Twilight Tear" Turf Sensation Calumet Farm Entry Teams Witr; Pensive In Arlington Classic By United Press "Die Arlington Classic, im $80,000 race, which will be run oft* tomorrow at Arlington Park, is supposed to te n big facUjr in deciding the three-year-old championship. Pensive, Calumet Farms' speedy Kentucky Derby winner, and Prcnk- ness victor, according to plan, was to race the other outstanding tlirce- ycnr-olds —Flutter, By Jlmmlny Stir Up, Broadcloth, and others But a fleet little fllly, Twilight Tear, has thrown a wrench Into the proceedings. Twilight Tear Is another Calumet Farm entry, nnd she snarled things when she won the Arlington Clas- preview earlier In the week, beat- ng her stable-mate Pensive. ' '" The famed daughter of Bull Lea, the fastest filly in America today! will stretch her million dollar legs in the rich da.ssic tomorrow. Pensive, and the ivuv make an almost unbeatable team, and no other leading three-year-olds have, as yet, entered a hid for the Arlington. Twilight Tear, the first lady of the turf, Is the three-year-old sen- xntloii of the year. She can run any distance, has stepped into the winner's circle 10 times in the last 10 trips to the post, and she has beaten her stable-mate Pensive twice. So all the other lending three- year-olds have taken a powder. Only two or three other bangtails arc entered in the Saturday event, and none of them are top-notchcrs. It's hard enough to go to the post against one Calumet Farm nag. But it's practically suicidal to step lip against two bangtails like Pensive nnd Twilight Tear. Yes, It looks like n walkaway for the Warren Wright colors. FRIDAY, JULY 21. 1944 ttie Cincinnati Reds. , f . •-— -- — »• ••".

(THIS .EDITO^IAI, FLUSHED BY HOPE JOUIJNAL THURSDAY, JULY 13.1 4 years CAN BE A LONGTIME The voters of Hempstead County and Arkansas will soon make their .selection of a man to serve them as Governor for the next two years and in all probability for a second- term, making a total of FOUR YEARS—and FOUR YEARS CAN BE A LONG TIME with the WRONG man at the head of our State. Hope Journal Supporting Terry With this important fact in mind, the Hope Journal is supporting David Terry in the Governor's race because we feel that he has greater ability and experience to offer the citizens of our Stale than any other candidate in the race. He has an outstanding service record in the Arkansas Legislature and in Congress. His background, business experience, knowledge of law and familiarity with the State and National governments will enable him to render our State the service to which it is entitled. We also feel that • in supporting Mr. Terry, we are supporting a man who \<>[ can enter the Governor's office, free from the influence ' of machine politics and who has no desire to perpetuate himself in political power. ' Arkansas will be faced with many new problems in the Postwar Era—development of our educational system, creating new industries, building highways and farm-to- market roads, agricultural development and numerous other postwar problems. Mr. Terry's years of administrative experience qualify him for this LEADERSHIP. Terry Has War Service Background" Also Arkansas will be faced -with the problems of supplying employment to thousands of men and women who have left the State to serve in our Armed Forces. In this, Mr. Terry will be very much interested and understanding as he served in World War 1 and now has two sons serving in the United States Army Air Force. One ' is 9 Sergeant gunner in a heavy bomber squadron, operat- jne m England, who has already participated in numerous bomber missions for which he has been decorated. Another son is a Lieutenant Colonel, serving''with the Air Force in India. " , A man's record is made over a period of years and we feel that Mr. Terry's record stands out as one of special -* service during the past twenty-five years. He served with ' c . distinction in the 49th General Assembly of Arkansas as Representative frqm Pulaski County and was elevated to Congress in 1933 from the Fifth District of Arkansas and served five consecutive terms. During this period, Mr Terry has been a champion-for education, flood control, farm-to-market roads, soil conservation and the development of new industries in Arkansas. Terry Emerged as Independent Candidate For all the maze of conflicting statements and happenings during the past few weeks of the political campaign we feel that Mr. Terry has emerged as the one in- i dependent candidate in the Governor's race who is in a < • position lo make a direct appeal to the citizens and tax- . • payers of Arkansas who have always frustrated attempts • '. " of political machines to perpetuate themselves in office. Yes, we are a friend of Mr. Terry. He has a sincere interest in the "Welfare of the Common Pople" and he has proved time and again in Arkansas and in Washington that the money bags" don't tell him how to act or vote. More important, he has an honest desire to be of real service to , fc Arkansas. '•"'' David Terry deserves the careful consideration of every conscientious voter in the coming Democratic election.
