H. Grain of Wilson removed as trustee of the $8,000,000 R. K. Wilson and Company which owns 50,000 acres of tillable land, in addition to many business enterprises in Mississippi County. Removal of Mr. Crain, in control of the vast businesses since death of R. E. Lee Wilson in 193;}, is sought in a petition filed late yesterday afternoon in Federal Court at Little Rock. 'Petitioners are Mrs. Victoria Wilson Wesson of Springfield and Cape Cod, Mass., and Mrs. Marie Wilson Howells do this or that." Hershey started and Thomas snapped. "I am trying to make a point, General, and it's awfully hard for you to understand." "The Army has something to of- of New York City. Stock owned by the two daughters of the late Mr. Wilson, together with those of Lee Wesson, a grandson, represent the majority ownership of the company. This "majority ownership" is approximately 52 per cent, while the other six "stockholder" own remainder of the shares of which Mr. Crain owns none. Other owners are the late Mr. Wilson's only son H. E. Lee Wilson Jr.. of Wilson, also a trustee: and these grandchildren of the founder of the company. Joseph Wilson Nelson, Frank Owen Wilson. Natalie Armstrong Wilson, R. B. Lcc Wilson III, and R. E.

Sen. Edwin c. Johnson, D. Colo., said a summary of Hersey's testimony might be that he "believes in an impressed Army and his no faith in the right of free choice." "That's unfair," Hershey protested. Hershey outlined plans for draft- Ing about 150,000 youths during the next three months in Congress extends the Selective Service Act. He said lie would draft about 70.000 in April, 30,000 in May and 50,000 ly 50 different businesses includ- ng cotton gins, oil mills, dehydra- ing plants, lumber companies, a tank, wholesale grocery, retal tores, farm implement firms am thcr concerns, most of which are ocated at Wilson.

"Keep it on the books and you may be assured that we will never .pall one man whom; we do roo '"'" r ''rfced"?or' can"'obtain as" i il"*t'oiUn' tcer," Paul said. "Only a continuation of the Se lective Service can keep up froii breaking our promises, skimpin along with less than we need 'JKJ abandoning missions, bases, equip ^ ment, research, and all the things that will turn us from being the best army in the world into a second-rate outfit." Paul said a study showed that at least half of. voluntary enlistments resulted ; from the belief of the youths involved that they would be drafted anyway. But such enlistments lie added, have dropped from 185,000 in Nobember to an estimated 70,000 this month. Hershey told the' committee that "We have seen our armed forces evaporate—to the consternation of all peace-loving nations."
