WILSON United Tress Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Mar. 14. (UP) — Millionaire Joseph P. Kennedy and former Coy. Colgate W. Darden of Virginia were tops today in speculative discussion of persons likely lo be nominated to be Undersecretary of Navy. Nomination of Edwin W. Paulei for that post was withdrawn from the Senate yesterday by President. Truman after a political 'brawl that jarred the cabinet and Icil raw political wounds. Kennedy is from Boston. He served the Roosevelt administration a a member of the securities and exchange commission and as ambas ador to Great Britain. The mat named to be undersecretary is ex peeled shortly to succeed Jame: Forrestal as Secretary of Navy. At least that is understood to have been the plan if Pauley had been •• confirmed. W Ickes Renews Attack Pauley's nomination was withdrawn at his request but under pressure after a six weeks political battle in which Secretary of In- lerior Harold L. ickcs resigned in a burst of charges against him and Mr. Truman. Ickcs returned to the battle last night In a radio address befqre the economic club of New York. lie said the Truman administration lacks moral standards "to the degree that violation of the law is condoned although it may threaten the foundations of the government." He was referring partly to the iact that Attorney General Tom C. Clark had not taken action against a witness during Ihe Pauley hearings. But the blast was aimed at Mr. Truman, as well. When he stormed out of the cabinet on Feb. 1.1, the old curmougeon said lie dill not "care to stay in an admin- islralion where I am expected t<: . commit perjury." He claimed Mr Truman had asked him to go easy on Pauley wh,en lie testified be- fon. the Senate'Naval Affairs Committee on the nominee's fitness lo ,be Nayy^.JJndcrsecretary. Makes New York Address Addressing his New York an diencc last night. Ickes said: "Why. perjury is no longer con LI sidcrcd in some quarters, including • many newspapers, as even a vcnia SINGLE COPIES .FIVE CENTS Vegro Admits Double Slaying; 'Something Told Me To Do It!' "Something jusl told me to ilo il ami I did," was tliu simple explanation jriven by \Villio Dowell, TO-yeai-old Nu- jji'o, as his reason I'or committing one of Ilia worst crimes in tho history of Hlylhevillc. He confessed, Sheriff Hale Jackson said today, to Uillinj. two Negro women and burning of a house. In talking with Sheriff Jackson, while en route from Greenville, Miss., where arrested yesterday afternoon he did not discuss attempted firing of Odis Seratt's country home, which did not burn, but a formal confession is expected to he made later in presence of witnesses and signed IjyJJowcll, Sheriff Jackson said. ~ " Notified yeslcrrfnv Union Members Are Expected To Approve Terms End Of 2 Big Strikes May Help Settlement Of Other Disputes sin. The attorney general, who | ncr during tn e past sought to be diligent to Invoke the penalty of the law for perjury, has in effect taken the position that when it sticks up its ugly head in a hearing into the qualifications of a man nominated for high federal office, it relates only to a 'political controversy and apparently, therefore, is to be jovially ignored.' 1 Ickes accused Pauley of proposing that a federal suit involving tills of tidewater oil lands be dropped to facilitate collection of campaign contributions for the Democratic National Committee in. 1944. The late Franklin D. Roosevelt then was a fourth term candidate. Paul- cv was treasurer of the Democratic National Committee. Pauley denied the charge. Other testimony alleged thai persons working with Pauley had sought to show corporation officers how they could set around the law which forbids contribution of corporation funds to political parties. The Senate Committee hastily ran y away from that subject. During the prolonged committee controversy, Pauley sought vindication and finally an expression of confidence in his integrity. He got such an expression from Mr. Truman. He got it even from Ickcs toward the last when the former secretary was recalled to testify. He thought Pauley was fit for other government service but not fov the Navy Department because he was in the oil business. Mrs. Blackwell Dies Last Night Well-Known Armcrcl Resident Is Victim Of Prolonged Illness Mrs. Annie Johnson Blackwell. wife of R. Cozine Blackwell of Armorel. died early today at Memphis Baptist Hospital after bavin? been ill two months. She was 40. Funeral arrangements were in- omplete this afternoon, but serv- ccs will be held some time Sal- rday at Cobb Funeral Home, fol- owiny arrival of relatives. Notified shortly after 2 o'clock his morniiiK that Mrs. Blackwell's condition suddenly had become vorsc, Mr. Blackwell. bis sister, Mrs. W. J. Pollard; Mrs. Black- voll's sister, Mrs. R. H. Robinson of Detroit and Mr. Robinson, left mmedialely for Mehiphis but she .lied shortly before their arrival here. With hcr was her daughter, Mrs. Sugeiic Dozicr of Little Rock; hci father. Claude Johnson; anothci •sister. Mrs. S. II. Hurt, and two brothers, James and Herbert Johnson, all of whom reside in Memphis. h n also is survived by two sons. Eugene Blnckwell of the Infantry, now attending; Officer Candidate School at Fort Benning. Cla.. and Johnson Blackwel]. student at Arkansas Slate College. Jonesbnro, who recently returned after long .service with the. Army in the European Theater. Mrs. Blackwell became ill early in January and on Jan. 18 was removed to Blytheville Hospital for treament. Later, she entered Memphis Baptist. Hospital where she underwent an operation and extensive treatment in an effort to diagnose her illness. Her condition had seemed improved when relatives here visited several days •ind she was to be removed to her home in about two weeks. Mrs. Blackwell was well known throughout a wide- area, having had a successful business career for h<: past six years. Long interested in improvement of conditions among rural families, Mrs. Blnckwell became a leader in iome demonstration work of farm women. Especially interested in home improvement, she began the milking of slip covers and draperies which led to establishment of an interior decorating business with Mrs. W. Ijconard Smith as a partner. They have been given wide publicity for creation of .such a successful business which added to the beauty of many residences with orders booked several months in advance. Born Jan. G. 1891, at Ripley, Tcnn., Mrs. Blackwell was reared there, she came to North Mississippi County late in 1919 and since that time had made her home on farms near Armorel. . afternoon that DOIVOII had ueen arrested at Greenville, Sheriff Jackson left immediately for that city after receiving the cull shortly before 3 o'clock. Arouses Suspicion Dowell had been apprehended by police there after the Negro woman operator of a Greenville rooming house notified officers that Dowell't, talk had aroused suspicion. When arrested, he confessed IK vas wanted here and agreed to vaive extradition. He will be charged with murde Jii two counts and arson on two counts. Sheriff Jackson said. Dowell told Sheriff Jackson he let Blytheville MondHy morning on Hi southbound train and that he too! bus at Memphis for Greenvlll that afternoon. Officers here had followed that lead and authorities in all towns inrt cities of the Midfiouth had been notified to be on the lookout for the wanted man. Dowell's wife, Eli/athc Washing- Ion Dowell, 58. was killed before burned, he (old Sheriff Jackson. Talking about the slaylngs while en route here. Dowell said he began beating bis wife about 11:45 o'clock Sunday night while they were in beil at their home on the Blytheville Oil Mill Road one and a half miles south of town. Victim Beaten and Slabbed After beating her severely, he stabbed her with a knife, he said, until sh c died. He then' set fire to the house, leaving the scene as soon as the fir c had gained headway. The house was destroyed. "She done m c wrong" was the explanation given when discussing the slaying of his former wife, Relha Dowell, 64. who lived alone at her house-off Coleridge street. Going there shortly after firing the house he recently sold to Odis Seratt. white farmer, the Negro shot his former wife through the neck and then fled. He dropped his gun and when be could not find it immediately, because of the darkness, he continued on his way he said. He made no answer to the question of firing the Seratl house to which fire had been set but which extinguished before serious damage was done. Officers were told Seratt had ordered Dowell to move from the house h[, had purchased and tin Negro had not cooperated in plans for transfer of the property and moving to possible be a motive for firing his house. Dowell was in the Frisco Station at 4:30 o'clock Monday morning, as officers had learned after questioning many people, and this "lead" was developed. Dowell was left at the county jail iii Osceola following arrival there with sheriff Jackson during the night, and was to be brought her? today where he will remain until the next term of Criminal Division of circuit Court April 1. liy United I'rrss Two of (he nation's longest ant rgest labor disputes, Involviftj, iTO.OOO workers, were settled to ;tay except for the formality o rank and file acceptance of tin liropOH'd contracts.

Mr. Cooper told Kiwanlaiis of the program for spraying houses with DDT. pointing out that 13,000 homes in Mississippi County would be sprayed twice this year. The homes arc sprayed at four-month intervals. He told of Ihe use of DDT overseas camps and answered ques- llons concerning iU effectiveness. In discussing control of the malaria control by larvae spraying Mr Cooper explained that this was an effort to kill the mosquito In its earliest stage and prevent any carrying of the malaria germ. In larvae spraying all stagnant pools or breeding places for mosqultos are covered with an oily film so the larvae cannot brca'.lic the air necessary for its life. Mr. Cooper recently came to Blytheville from Washington. D. C. and replaces Lieut, Edward Shields as area supervisor. Present for the meeting yesterday was a new member, Fred Cal- llghan.
