The committee had reports that some individuals had received poll tax receipts without paying for them, and Without having authorized anyone to obtain the receipts for them. These rciwrls came close on the heels of a federal court decision in Hot Springs where block buying of poll tax receipts was condemned and nearly 2,000 receipts voided. The Garland County situation probably did not surprise any of the politicians. Many have suspected as much for years, but: inilil now ny one has been sufficiently interested to prove the case in court. And, it is not reasonable to expect that. Garland County stood alone in its manner of handling poll tax receipts. It is surprising, and highly encour- .aging to learn that the Craighead '1 County leaders within the Democratic Party are delving into a situation which might go a long way toward clean elections. Clean elections are vital to good gvornment and every county central committee in the stale might well do what Craighcad County proposes to do, ' j-. which is to clean house, if a house cleaning is necessary and prosecute any who may bu accused of mishandling poll tax receipts. Since the tax receipt is a requisite to voting, it becomes so sacred to liberty-loving Americans that no manipulator of elections should dare to put his hands on any receipt other than his own. Britain and Palestine Since the British loan has been up for discussion in Congress, people in , and out of that, body htwc radically stood in line to wait for a chance to twist the lion's tail. The British people and their government have been ac- cused of a versatile and impressive collection of villainies. Anil perhaps nothing has been more widely condemned than recent British policy and actions in Palestine. Ziontat organizations have been articularly bitter—and who can blame them? The tragic plight of their homeless, unwanted brelhern in Europe continues unsolved, with delay, indecision and violence their fruits of victory after the nightmare of Nazism. Hut who, one may wonder, would do belter in the long run? And what government would care to step forward and volunteer to take Palestine off Britain's hands and settle the whole controversy ? V.rilain's presence there is the result of Allenby's liberation of Palestine in World War i. The situation was somewhat comparable to our own conquest and later administration of Japan within the past year. lint Dritin inherited an old anil explosive problem. Palestine is homeland and holy land to Arabs as well as Jews. This fact was rccogni'/.ed in the oft-cited Bill four Declaration of 1017, which, while stating Britain's support of Jewish settlement in the national homeland, specified that this should not prejudice the rights of Palestine's non-Jewish residents. The real author of the current trouble; is i:o| Attlen, Bevin, Churchill or Kden. It is Adolf Hitler. To most of us, Palestine seems the logical place for the Jewish survivors of Hitlcrisin. liul that plan does not seem logical to the Arab world. In fact, it seems so illogical that its leaders, in politely diplomatic words, have unmistakably threatened a large-scale war of opposition in which they would seek l» invoke Russian aid. So, among other things, Britain has • been trying to avoid another war. Meanwhile, • our government has stood at a safe distance and offered prudent advice, without committing itself in any way lo its fulfillment. Many of our citizens have called the British government hard names, but none has come up with a feasible plan for handling the over-all situation any better. Such a plan might he for some country other than Palestine to admit ., these hungry, desperate Jewish refugees as soon as possible, leaving settlement of I he more esoteric problems of /ionism for a latter dale. But who has volunteered? Not Britain, understandably, for her people's diet today is even lower than their meager wartime fare. But not the United States or Canada or or Argentina, either. It isn't difficult to imagine the hue anil cry if 100,000 more jobless, money- less refugees were to be sent to any one country. The Palestine Arabs are raising such a cry, only .vastly more bloodthirsty, right now. The Jews continue to be the pathetic victims of all this. But it does seem a little unfair to make the British the only villians of I he piece. general Duty LUCY AGNES HANCOCK L«y s Hancock Diitributcd bj^EA SERVICE, INC.

He must have found out something else he Wouldn't have written. In her room some lime laler she drew cut the typewritten pages and scanned them witli foreboding. One sentence stood out from the Qage in. letters of flame: - "Capt.

Suddenly she wanted him desperately. She jumper) up and ran down the slalrs lo the telephone. She dialed the Bacon number and when Mrs. Bacon answered asked it she could reconsider her refusal. She would like lo come out if it wasn't too late. It wasn't and she bathed and dressed in record lime. Then she flew down the stairs. She had lo catch that bus due at the stop ot the foot of Main Street Hill in just a few minutes. She didn't notice the insistent honking of a horn and it wasn't until o small, shabby car slid up to the curb on which she stood that she recognized Jim Hnllock. Her heart skipped a beat.

"I wish I dated believe that." "You may." she told him honestly and Ihe little car swerved dangerously as he turned to look at her. "But—do you know where I'm going, Jim?" "Sure. Where I intend taking you. Out to the Bacon cabin. Right?" "Right. Were you Invited for dinner, too?" "I was, and I knew you were; but was told you couldn't make it. Then when you, changed your mind. Carolyn phoned me and I stuck around hoping to pick you up before the bus did. Swell people, the Bacons!" • Sally laughed. "Swell matchmakers 01- they think they are," she said demurely. "Do you mind?" he asked al- dubiously. Sally laughed again. "Not a bit," she told him. "It is all so terribly . obvious a child could sec through hrm. Of course," sho went on oftly, "if it were any other man t might prove embarrassing, but—" "Bui what, Sally?" he whispered ind the car slict gently into the shallow roadside ditch and settled with what appeared to be icnnanence while the two In the shabby, battered coupe were quite unaware of what had happened. "You—you're nice, Jiml" th« givl whispered in her turn. "O-oh, Sally!" he breathed' and held her close white his lips found hers and clung for a long ecstatic moment.

July 20 (NKA'i — t sometimes takes a mini nwny •om home to lell n man ul home 'hut's going on in his O-A'U comury. t's u inntter oE per.spo-:t.vt:. Fresh olnt of view. Seeing over Ihe hills o enjay the scenery. Sir Keith Murdoch, publisher uf be Melbourne, Austrcilu. Herald, is hcrefore given this spae? loility for few, Eng- iKli-s|icukint;-cousin notes and ideas in the current stale o( »( r :tirs in he United Stales, Australia and the United Kingdom. In general, the Melbourne puh- Isher observes Ihnl th? posuvnr world Is terribly uninformed ubaul (self. He believes this clue to two .hlngs. First, barriers to the free exchange of Information between icoples. Second, a shortage of ncws- jrlnt. British papers still are mostly four- and eight-page ftfTniv^. Australian papers nre somcwlMK hiryev but are still rationed on nev--.siir.nt. And in such limited space it is impossible to present anything like a complete picture of what goes on In this confused, postwar world. Only In America is the.'- a ncnr- normal supply of paper. That pills double rcsponsibilty on U S. imcl Canadian publications. First, to print as complete n record :is they can. Second, lo work couMniillv Jov greater freedom of the press through liilemnlioiHil agreeniL'nts lhal will enable evpry pnrt of the worirl to know what every oilier part is djing. OTEIKIt COUNTKIKS DON'T FEAK ATOMIC ROMIt As for the news which Ihe Australian publisher rends in U. S. newspapers. :\ few dillcrcncc:; stand out. One is a greater a\v:troness of the atomic bomb. Its dangei;; and its threat to future world peace have not registered in other countries. Another difference i.s a crn-ater suspicion of Soviet Russia. To a visitor from Australia that is c:>nsid- rcd alarming. This suspicion is p.n- lyzed ns an American belief trml lussia Is imfniiiiliiir with th-» way ic western democracies comiuct leir affairs—again due to burners gainst the free Uow of infoima- ton. Or it may be armly/ed as a »lief that Soviet Russia wants to ominatc the world and therefore 1 , cllberalely refuses to co-oporato. The latter Is, of course, the more numerous state of mind, 'llu former may be overcome in lime, but I is something to work at. '• A third thing which strikes the •isltor lo America is its tremcndous- y high prices. Australia and Bri- ain have both pegged their prices. Advances from prewnr levels have, been less than in the United States. But the U. S. A. today, without price control, Is a frightening prospect, lo the rest of the world. The unexpressed inference is that if U. S. prices go still higher, no other country in the world will be able lo buy U. s. goods. TUB WAI! CIIANGKU AUSTRALIA As for Auslralia, the wny has made It a different place. Thai change is not from U. S. Army occupation, cither. The American'.; left their mark, but Australia Ins no desire lo become (he 40th st-itc. The Commonwealth sim bos lUs lulwv government, way over lo the loft of anything known hero.
