BLYTHEVII.LK. ARKANSAS, SATURDAY, JULY 10, 1917 And Convict Him LITTLE ROCK, July 19. (UP) — Pulaski County Sheriff Tom Gulley's newest organization to combat Juvenile delinquency has paid early dividends In the apprehension of an adult criminal. Three, members of Gulley's recently-organized Junior Deputy Sherifl's Association were among the prosecution witnesses yesterday , whose testimony resulted in conviction , of Phillip Lee Fisher, 27, on charges of burglary and grand larceny. Thc Jury fhfed seven- year sentences on each charge and Judge Gus Fulk ordered them served consecutively. Fisher was charged with enter- Ing a Little Rock drive-in last April 3-and stealing a cigarette machine and 250 packages of cigarettes. Oulley said that the day after the burglary Jimmy Brain and Sidney Brain, twins, and Jerry Kennedy, all Junior deputies, were playing near the drive-In when they found an Army duffel bag filled with cigarettes hidden In tile weeds. Thc lads returned the loot and posted a watch near Ihe spot. * After a patient wait thc boys spotted Fisher approaching thc scene, searching the near-by weeds. When they shouted to him he ran but after a chase of more than <> mile, he fell exhausted. The boys summoned city detectives, who arrested the former criminal. Yesterday they testified at his trial. Soviets Wont UNtoHahdle Marshall Plan LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., July 19. (UP) — The East-West conflict over European reconstruction moved Into thc United Nations today with the opening of the fifth session of the United Nations Economic- and Social council. A major stage in Russia's diplomatic battle against the Marshall Plan was almost certain to engulf the 18-nalion ageqcy whtch Is supposed to case the world's economic and social Ills. Some circles predicted Russian delegates would open a campaign to force the United states and Ihe countries of Western Europe to come into the UN with the European reconstruction program they arc drafting without participation of the Soviets and the Russian- supported states of Eastern Europe Riissia was vastly outnumbered On the council, with only two states of the Soviet bloc _ c«ehoslo™kla and Byelorussia-as members. Czechoslovakia s Jan Papanek will hold thc chairmanship or the council for thc opening portions of *. four or five-week meeting. The United States, Great Britain and live others of the i« states participating in the Marshall Plin held seats at the council table. It was probable that Russia would demand they carry out the lo*t the UN rather than sldcsteppln* European recovery program through the world organization and Ils rnul- tlple specialized agencies.
