The sight of a red-haired man being led through the main streets of Hermes by French gendarmes who hail arrested him for collaborating with the Germans touched off one serious riot. And right In the middle of it was Bob Landry, veteran Time 1 and Ijfe magazine photographer. Landry says It nil stfiricd ivlien the several thousand Frenchmen, massed in the public sqtmre, smv the red-haired man being loaded into a van.. They pushed toward him, shouting, but U. S. military police kept the crowds from reaching th c prisoner. And just then a Frenchman pulled Lnndry towards him, saying, "Come with me, T will show you more." In (he next, 10 minutes Lnudry .saw a pretty girl being manhandled by,.the mob. "They were slapping her nnd pulling 'her hair, those irate men nud women," says Lati- dry, "and 11 saw n man knocked down and kicked In Die fnce and body until 1 couldn't see how lie could take it any longer." Landry adds, "Another man was on his knees In the middle of the .street with a pistol ul his head." The Frenchmen were making him say "Vive La France, vivc be Ganlle, vlv e Roosevelt and Churchill." 1 •••..• Then Landry was pulled along to a court yard with the crowd riehl bchirid hiin. There, three collaborationists were brought out'to he Holographed, Landry's excited puidc kept urging the police to shoot the men, arguing thnf It would make a bettor picture and when the police held their fire, the mob pushed in to beat the three men, smashing one prisoner's nose.

STATE INSTITUTIONS improved the all, outstanding advancements made at penitentiary and State Hospital. His Opponent— the C. J. 0. Political Action Committee candidate who began the Senate campaign built up a.s a GREAT MAN who spoke from the rarefied stratosphere. This man, THE GREAT ONR, now has DISINTEGRATED before our eyes in one of the most pitiful and shocking sights in Arkansas history. Here are excerpts from Fulbright'.s latest radio address, from the Oxford-Vienna bred mind: "llonicr Aclkins is a Foolish Htlle man." "The more Ignorant the voter the better it would suit him." "Wouldn't it tc wonderful If ill of us were named Ailkins." "I hope thai Homer will recover his faeullirs sufficiently by January I, to return .to his place behind the soda fountain In Hie corner drug store." Despite Carl Bailey's flat .statement in August, 19-10, that Arkansas would ge no defense contracts, Governor Adkins co-operated with Arkansas members of Congress in a .sustained campaign which brought $500,000,000 in plants and millions in pay rolls the greatest record in history, saving 2fi cents of every dollar of tax income, improved .financial condition $75,000,000, accumulated S'12 r 000,000 surplus (casli on hand in the treasury).
