BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. XLV— NO. 143 BlytheTllle Dally New* Blythevllt* Courier THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AKD SOUTHEAST MISSOURI Eisenhower Is Being Tabbed as a Possible Republican Candidate By Jack Bell WASHINGTON, Sept, 7. (AP)—Gen. Dwiglit D. Eisenhower is talking so much like a Republican that some Washington office holders ai'e beginning to think he may have his eye on the J952 GOP presidential nomination. Despite Eisenhower's recent assertion he hasn't the _ ightest interest in such a nomination, Senator Ives (R-NY) old a reporter he won't be surprised if the general's name is put before the next party nominating convention. Agreeing, Senator Sparkman (D-+ —^— Ala) said he thinks Eisenhower would provide tougli opposition to anyone the Democrats nominate. Along with many others in Congress, Sparkman said he is beginning to believe that President Truman will be a candidate for another term. The President hasn't said any- BlythevUle Herald Mississippi Valley Leader BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1949 Cotton Growing Costs Discussed thing publicly about his plans. Lawmakers said that In private conversHtions he has left the door open to the possibility that he might run again, particularly !f Congress doesn't enact his social welf a re prog rain before th e next presidential election. Middle Koad Tone Eisenhower's Labor Day speech to the American Bar Association in Bt. Louis Is regarded widely here as tallying closely with the line of middle of the road Republicans who oppose what they call a welfare state but who don't want to go back to the days of Mark Hanna. Politicians noted particularly the general's assertion that 'the future nf America "likes down the middle of the road between concentrated wealth on one flank and the unbridled power of statism on the other." Along with his previous opposition to federal aid lo education— 1'hich he said would put the government into that field — this statement has put Eisenhower on the side of the Republicans who have been criticizing what they call Mr. Truman's swing toward big government.- In contrast, Mr. Truman defended his program against charges that it would lead to "collectivism," "statism" or to a "welf.ire state." He said the measures he proposed were fore the public good and he didn't care what his opponents called them. . : . If Elsenhower should enter or be pushed, ' loitlpn at most observers "t sta^e foresee 't contest between him, Senator Robert A. Taft of Ohio and aiid former Gov. Harold E. Stasserr of Minnesota. " • ' " ' ;,, It would be a case of two college presidents against 'a senator since Eisenhower h ea ds Colurnbi a University and Stassen is president of the University of Pennsylvania. Taft will be battling for his poW- fcal life In next year's senatorial campaign in Ohio, If he Is re- everything organ- elected despite Ized labor can do to defeat him, J3is friends predict he will make his ^Jiirth try for the GOP presidential nomination.

Use of Mechanical Equipment in Fields Holds Wide Interest Reduction of costs in the cultivation and harvesting of cotton keynoted a meeting held yesterday at Walker Park to discuss operational techniques of the mechanical cotton picker. The meeting, sponsored by Delta Implement Company, and International Harvester Company, was attended by approximately 150 farmers and ginners. Cotton buyer B. G. West, one of several speakers on the program warned the planters that they must prepare to compete on the world market with cheap cotton produced in other countries. Must Meet Competition "We must also fight to retain the market in the United States. Mechanization of processes involved in making a cotton crop will help our farmers meet the competition he now has from the various synthetic fabrics. In the very near future we will be forced to put out a cheaper crop," Mr. West stated. Reduction in farming costs also figured in remarks made by farmer Charles Brogdon, who used a mechanical picker last year in the harvesting of 125 bales. "We must reduce the price of colon farming to bring the price of cotton down where it will be accepted on the international market and it is becoming evident,{hat we mus< j-.iii.uite inciting In the early pan of the fall in order that we can be- sure of a good* grade. I think ,..>. mechanical picker can help in both cases," he said. Tells of Use of Mechanical Picker Mr. Brogdon also spoke on hi; experiences with the mechanica Packer and operational costs in- L- L. W_ard, Jr., Mississippi County rginnervr;told farmers who plan tc use the mechanical picker to "keep fields as clean of grass as possible and don't pack the cotton after«" has been put in the trailer. Such packing breaks up grass and lea particles and makes it almost itn possible to remove." "Wherever possible." he said "ask your glnner not to blow machine picked cotton Into a cotton house Tins process also makes the cotton :nore difficult to clean. "I think it Is the responsibility the ginner to cooperate with the farmer and try to find out jus what type handling machine picto cotton requires. "Opinion on how the mechanica picker affects the grade of cotton seems to be divided, but I do think the mechanical picker helps to ob tain a better grade in the late stages of picking when snapping oc curs," he stated. Defoliation Discussed County Agent Keith Bilbrey ad dressed the group on defoliation " must i! you plan to use the me chanical picker." "Average frost date," he said •for this county Is November 1 Yo should make every effort to hav cotton defoliated before tliis date However, the boll s , lo ,, w ^ two rv!r , S devel °Pe<l before defoliatloi Defo,,at,on win not affect secon, ant should be used per acre and" ] is sometimes preferable to have th er than In the' "" afte T°° n rath ro'ram SPeakErS '°° k "™ rt J " th *__. . . *HS recessed at 11001 ^«, barbe cue dinner.

Prosecutor Mitchell Cohen said Unruh's wound is not. serious and that he is physically able to undergo extensive quest ion ing by mental health experts. Should the psychiatrists find that Unruh was sane, Cohen said he will press for an immediate grand jury indictment, early trial and death for already has been charged, with murder. ' The prosecutor told newsmen that Unruh, a Bible-reading war veteran with an "arsenal of weapons," said In his statement yesterday that he killed .because of "resentment against his neighbors." Cohen said Unruh listed (our shopkeepers as his intended victims: druggist Maurice Cohen, 40; shoemaker John Pllcharik. 27; barber Clark Hoover, 33, and Tailor Thomas Zegrino, 29. He got Cohen, Pilclmnt and Hoover. Zegrino escaped because he wasn't in his shop when Unruh walked in carrying his German Luger pistol. Unruh stalked to the rear of the shop and killed; Zegrino's bride of a month. But, in addition to those four, Unmh killed druggist Cohens wife and mother; an insurance salesman, a television salesman, two women and a boy in car; a six-year-old boy getting a haircut in Hoover's barber shop, and a two-year-old boy who poked his head out of a window. Cohen was asked whether Unruh said anything of his reaction to having killed inocent men, women and children. "He wasn't asked that question," Cohen said. "And he didn't volunteer any motive other than the fact that he s"aid he had been building up a grudge against his neighbors for two years since he returned from the army." Third Family Death Ten year old John Wilson died at 1:40 a.m. (CST). The youngster wa.s the third member of his family claimed by Ihe bullets of a stalking gunman who turned a city block into a place of terror yesterday. The boy's mother and grandmother were killed beside him as they sat in their car waiting for a traffic light. Meanwhile, thousands of curiosity seekers flocked to the scene to examine at first hand the bullet holes and other mute evidence of the massacre—described by police as the worst street shooting in the nation's history. While the stunned families of the victims prepared to bury their dead, police maintained a round-the-clock vigil at the hospital bedside of Unruh. A bullet was removed from Unruh's hip last night al Cooper Hospital—less than 12 hours after he had pumped 33 shots from a German Luger automatic in a methodical door-to-door search tor human targets. Captured when police tear gas bombs forced him from his own barricaded bedroom, Unnih later was found to have the hip wound. It was not determined Immediately whether Ihe bullet came from the gun of K civilian or one of the 50 j County planter, was policemen who converged on hw tlvcs hideout. I The Veterans Administration in New York said Unruh enlisted In the Army Oct. 27, 1942, He was overseas, part of the time In the Rhlneland, from Oct. 12, 1944, to July, 194o. He was given the European Theater of Operations medal and the Victory medal in addition to Uu Good Conduct medal.

(/P)—When you try to remember something, little spurts of electricity from your brain run along the flesh of your temples. They emerge through your skull. The discovery fits exactly with findings of brain surgeons that memory Is electrical. The surgeons, during operations that exposed the brain, caused patients to remember things long forgotten. This tliav dirt by touching the grey matter with i slight electrical current. The Tufts psychologists find that he electrical spurts that come out through your skull, rise from the •ery same brain sections where the surgeon* found the scat of memory. Tills seat Is the temporal lobes, two section of grey matter, one on each.>»tde of the head. The electrical memory tabs reported by Dr. Kennedy arc a new type of brain waves. Such waves are slight electrical surees which are picked up by pasting metal discs, or electrodes on the scalp, and amplifying the electrical current they pick up. To get the memory waves the electrodes arc fastened In front nf the top corner of each cur. These new waves are traced by a pen on moving paper, where they form little spindles, lying In n horizontal position. There are eight to twelve of them a second. They don't appear all Hie time. Wllh your mind a blank none show, unless a stray thought probably some memory, crosses your brain Then there Is a brief electrical' wiggle. These spindles, which the Tufts scientists call kappa waves, were discovered last winter. At rirsl they were reported to be evidences of thought, appearing In reading and arithmetic and other menial activities. But. today. Dr. Kennedy reported further study which seems to pin them directly to the effort you make to remember something. He said that when you are learning something new. there is little of this kappa activity. When you try to remember something you have learned Imperfectly _ something that won't quite respond to your effort— the waves are most numerous.
