The Bigger Blackf ish Crime The size of the haul last SaUirdny night by firmed robbers, who obtained between ?80,000 and SI00,000 in the Black fish Lake Club in St. Francis county, emphasizes magnitude of a 'greater crime ngsunsl law and order in Arkansas. The attitude of public officials, including the governor, his chief of sf:ite police from Forrest Gily and nil law enforcement officers in that county, is nati.sealiiiK to law-abiding citi/.cns. It is that and more, for it creates a situation which handicaps business when money is diverted from legitimate channels and tucked into the pockets of professional ^amblcrti. The charge of Arkansas law enforcement laxity hurled by Ally. Gen. Will Gerber of Memphis is nothinj;' less than the combined voices of-Memphis, business interests crying out against the diversion of Memphis money from legitimate into illegal channels. II is a cry which can bo seconded by business men in Knst Arkansas from Helena In Ulythevillc. The Mcinphiiiu's charge was hurled straight into the governor's office in Little Kock. And. the manner in which the governor received tlie ultimatum is disappointing. A United Press item recites that the governor "challenged" Tennessee- officials to produce their "phantom wit nesses" who were the victims of the robbers. Hiding behind -this flimsy situation arising out of the robbery does not bury the fact that the law against gambling is being violated week after week with the suckers fleeced "behind the four walls of a "club". The suckers do not deserve protection, but what about their families? The governor's attitude reminds one of (he ostrich Unit hides it's head in the sand to escape facing disagreeable facts. Arkansas needs stale and county officials who will face the facts and rid the slate of the blight of gambling. There is no semblance of an excuse for waiting until one of the victims of Saturday night's robbery squawks to provide "official notice" Stale Police General Duty LUByc Chief Jack Porter and St. Francis County Sheriff Kodger Wesl .seem to Hi ink they need to look into the gambling situation right in their front yards, for Forrest City is the home of the police chief, loo. The robbery of the Hlackfish Lake Club is of minor importance when compared to the gambling which brought complaints' more than a year ago. The robbery focuses the spotlight on conditions which should have been corrected long ago. The charges deserve attention. Will they get it? Justice and Vengeance From the 1 distance of America, Gen. Uraja nlikhailovilcli's (rial seems extremely confusing and a little disheartening. Nineteen American flyers have testified that General Mikhail- ovilch and his Chelniks saved their lives. They have presented evidence that Ihc Cholniks were fighting the Germans. Yd. (here arc some official hinis in (his country that the Tito government's charges arc not without foundation. What, probably bothers Americans most is the knowledge that the oin;- lime gui'i-rilla hero has Ihc cards slacked against him-. Marshal Tito has promised him a "fair trial." Bui he has told our Slate Department thai General Mikhailovitcli's crimes are ''far too big and horrible to allow discussion of whether he is guilty or not." Hut this trial, in principle, is no different from the Allied trials of win- criminals. The only difference lies in tlie seemingly questionable evidence, the 1 fact that the Mikhailovilch trial is a national issue before a national court, and the deep suspicion that the whole Ihinjf may be an ideological frameup. To the Tito partisan the trial may seem more logical than the war crime trials are to us. No one believes that Goering, To jo and other top Axi.s leaders will be found innocent. 11 is .just thai to us in ;i democracy, the idea of . criminal procedure against men responsible for (he most terrible of crimes confuse the mind's conception if. jus- lice and its desire for vengeance. ~~ THURSDAY, JUNK 27, L94G .

And let me tell you something, you little goose. A man, if he's worth anything, doesn't care a hoot if the girl he loves is beautiful in other men's eyes as long ns she is lovely to him." Dora stared at her friend quizzically for a long moment. "And how, may I ask, do you happen to know so much about it? How docs it happen lhat you speak with authority? From what I've heard about you from tlie others, you don't care for men—aren't the least bit interested in men.
