TOUGH GOING ABROAD Britiah's Labor government has ridden out the first flurry of storms stirred by the Conservative opposition in Parliament. It has won three tests of strength in four days, by margins of 14, 25 and 19 votes. Had Labor lost any of these, it would have been forced to call a new election. Yet the most reliable observers believe the Conservatives do not really want such a result at this time. The Conservatives appear to be con- Hinds County Will Become Separate Chancery District JACKSON. (Special) Hinds County will become a separate chancery court district Jan. 1, 1951, and will retain the status of the fifth district in the state. Two other counties in the present fifth district with Hinds will become the 15th chancery district. Uney are Lincoln and Copiah counties and will be under a new chancellor. An election to name the new chancellor will be held in the regular Democratic primary August 22 in Copiah and Lincoln counties. Similarly, it is a practical certainty that Judge V. J. Strieker, present chancellor of the fifth district, will be in the race for reelection Aug. 22. - Judge Strieker will continue the handle the chancery affairs of the three counties as the Fifth district until January 1.- Two To Run In 15th It was brought out in house discussions that there probably will 6 naora By Edwin Rutt TUB STORY i Alice Pine, neere-tnry to Muriel Hnllerk. a noniilnr writer, haa found hernelf utrantre-ly attracted to Brent.

Even before "the drink came, he proceeded to do so. Brent was in love with Alice, and Alice was in love with Brent. What could be simpler, he asked? Alice replied that Chuck, had had too many drinks. Perhaps, but did she know other things? Chuck began to tell them. Alice drove home in a kind of troubled daze. She slipped into the house through the kitchen. It was procrastination, she knew, of the first order. The courageous thing would have been to go to Muriel at once. But somehow she couldn't just then. She reached the library unobserved.

Crowded court dockets in the Hinds section of the Fifth District for several years and the growing oil litigations in the Lincoln-Copiah area have held attention of the judiciary for some time. It has long since been recognized that the state's business and state cases necessarily thrown into the courts in the state capital have made for expansive dockets and the delays thus entailed have been noted. Court Has Been Incessant The Hinds chancellor has held court almost incressantly, and still the dockets have been too full as a result, the demand for a separate district of Hinds has grown. It is expected that the new plan will expedite court business in the three counties affected. j- musks ivT Copyright 1950 by NEA SERVICE. INC ting toward the end manufacturing day by day an interesting, perhaps important, book. But just now the papers meant something else to Alice. They furnished a legitimate excuse to go in to Muriel: lead up to a discussion instead of plunging abruptly into it-She began to read. She wanted to read with care. But her mind refused to co-operate fully. Words, sentences, persisted in forming on its- fringes. And she was aware of trying to do two things at once absorb a story and talk, from afar, to Muriel Halleck. "TUT, abruptly, she was talking to Muriel no longer. She was reading, with furious concentration, unconscious of a frown cutting deeply into her forehead. She finished the last page. Then, for a moment, she sat utterly stunned. It was unbelievable. Yet there it was. a scribble on yellow, waiting to be transcribed in clear readable black by Alice's typewriting. . Alice Pine got up slowly. Her right hand, hard and savage, held a crumple of yellow. And little red dots seemed to be dancing, tortuously, in front of her eyes. She did not walk into the study. She swept into it. Muriel sat at her table, composed, cool-looking, the inevitable cigaret dangling from her lower lip. "Gosh, Alice! I know I'm I smoking. But there isn't any other fire. So why behave like you're going to one?" Muriel stopped. Alice felt the red dots running together, merging into a dull crimson glow. And the words and sentences, lately so clear on the edge of her mind, merged also into a confused jumble. "I won't type this!" Muriel did not start. She merely said, eyes like quiet silver. "Alice, have you gone nuts? Che 12J vinced they would Ifive little to gain by unseating the government now. Were they to win ah election today, their margin of control in the House of Commons probably would be little better than Labor's present advantage. Their future would be just as shaky as Labor's On the other hand, they believe time is on their side. They foresee a worsening economic situation, expecting that benefits from last year's currency devaluation wiJl I steadily diminish from here on. As Conservative leaders view it, economic, trouble means less popularity for Labor and more votes for their own party. So their current strategy is aimed not Labor but at simply harass ing it, keeping it anxious and unsettled. to forestall a new election until they think the outlook favors a Con servative victory by a wide enough margin to assure good working control in Parlia ment. .

If this goes on much longer, it looks like a new general election will be the only sensible solution. The present instability in French government is a travesty on the democratic process. A sounder political alignment is sorely needed. Frenchmen have got to realize that splinter parties based upon fine theoretical distinctions are a luxury out of place in the hard reality of 1950. GENERAL DELIVERY Mrs. Hattie Dunaway, McComb, Mississippi.

Also, i know that I'm a lousy writer, maybe. But" she touched the mashed papers with a scarlet fingernail "I didn't think I was this lousy." "Oh. Muriel!" Alice's voice rose. "It isn't that and -you know it. It's iust that you you can't do this thing." "Can't I?" Muriel's eyes hooded suddenly. After that, for a space, silence lay heavy on the room. TVrURIEL broke the silence "Darling," she said patiently, "you asked me once what 1 was going to make of my central character, Larry. I couldn't tell you then. Now. though. Larry has developed quite logically." "But, Muriel, Larry is is Brent I never realized before what you were, working up to. It wasn't so dieadfully apparent before. But now. you've done all except name him." "Well." Muriel interrupted, chuckling, "there's no law against using a prototype. Of course, and I quote: 'All characters in this story are entirely fictitious.' Un quote. "Oh," Alie waved exasper- atedly. "that's just talking around the point. It is Brent, and you ve misrepresented him. You've made him a defeated, frustrated man A weak man and a a total loss. And he isn't, essentially." An edge crept into Muriel's voice. I need you. I suppose. Alice, to tell me what kind oi man my husband is?" Alice gaped at her incredu lously. This woman, with the dangerous, yellow gleam in her eyes and a cold smile playing about a tight, red mouth, could not pa Muriel Hallsck. Gay. even-dispesitioned Muriel, so kind, thoughtful and tolerant. This woman was a Stranger, ruthless, cruel-looking. Alice bit her lip. said: "I know I'm taking a lot on myself. But why did you feel that you had to do it, Muriel?" . (To Be Continued) McComb Entcrpriso-Jounial The Washington Merry-Go-Round By DREW PEARSON CZECH FOREIGN MINISTER Clementis Said Purges Were Ridiculous; ,Taxes Inspire Poetry In Congress; Sen. Humphrey Battles Byrd Alone. WASHINGTON One day last December, an American newsman walked up to a stocky, pipe-smoking diplomat in the Delegates' Lounge at the United Nations Vladimir Clementis, For eign Minister of Czechoslovakia. "Mr. Minister," said the newsman, "what's this I hear about a purge in the foreign office in Prague?" "Ridiculous!" "A purge which, they, say, might even eliminate you." "Absolutely ridiculous. Look here, why don't you fellows print something true about my country? Why don't you tell the story of our great advances in agriculture and industry, under the Communist regime, instead of printing silly rumors about purges!" Clementis wouldn't call them silly rumors today. He has now been purged. NOTE Reason for the latest Czech purge probably was to pave the way lor a complete taking over of Czechslovakia by Russia. Hitherto the country has been run by Czech Communists. But Poland is now under dictatorship of a Russian General and this probably will follow other satellite countries as a crackdown on growing unrest. Taxation Humor High taxes brought a fusillade of i'orensics from Congressional Republicans last week. "Suppose a young man decides to propose," opined Congressman Bob Rich of Pennsylvania. "He has to pay a 20 per cent ,tax on the engagement ring. Then another tax on the wedding ring. And suppose in due time they acquire an offspring. "Then the taxes really start 20 per cent on baby oil, baby powder, baby lotion and baby creams." . Mom and Sis also had a defender in Representative Les Arends of Illinois. "And when the tax gougers made up their 'sucker' list," Arends said, "you ladies were placed at the top and you have been there ever since. . "These are not 'luxuries'," continued Arends, referring to toilet articles and cosmetics. "The American way of life has made these articles as essential to you women as shaving to menl'olks. The truth is that the Washington tax-masters regard you as a 'soft touch.'" Rep. Edith Nourse Rogers of Massachusetts, not to be outdone, got in a plug in for the menfolks, "From the time they get up in the morning men pay a tax on everything," she said, "their pa jamas . . . their bath soap and shaving lotion . . . their razor and hair tonic . . . everything they eat for breakfast . . . and that all-important smoke." Democrats seemed to enjoy the show as much as Republicans un til. Rep. Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania tearfully recited: "No baby oil for you, young man, Bareback babe, with cheeks of tan. By the rule of Uncle Sam You're a luxury, little lamb. The skin we loved to touch with powder We sadly pat while you yell louder; v So now .you know, my little man, Why Mama votes Republican." Byrd Battle The Senate hasn't seen the end of the feud between Minnesota's breezy, young Senator Hubert Humphrey and Virginia's apple-cheeked Senator Harry Byrd. Humphrey is still trying to sprinkle salt on Byrd's tail. The brash Minnesotan raided Byrd's favorite nest, the Senate Economy Committee, with a charge that instead of saving money it was wasting money. He pointed out that the committee hadn't even met for two y,ears. This brought ,the Byrd forces to the Senate floor in full array. Mdre Republicans and Dixiecrats turned out to defend Byrd than listened to the debate on the Marshall Plan and Atlantic Pact. One by one they lambasted Humphrey, who couldn't get a word in edgewise. When he finally gained the floor, the Byrd forces drifted out, left him to tallc to a near-empty chamber. Bouncing Senator Ken Wherry of Nebraska, ,the Republican leader, actually hustled among the Republicans, urging them to leave Humphrey stranded. "This guy has given us a rough time," Wherry whispered. "Now let's give him a rough time." So, many Republicans joined Southern Democrats in trailing iContiniieil tin Haite Svni Total Federal Budget Billions - 1948 $42.2 RECEIPTS $33.8 EXPENDITURES Billions : 1949 $38.2 RECEIPTS $40.1 EXPENDITURES Billions 1950 $38.0 RECEIPTS $43.5 EXPENDITURES WHERE ARE WE HEADED T WHAT IS YOUR ANSWER?

Miss Athlete Of All Tinie'-Gee Walker, Graham Also Honored UNIVERSITY, (Special) Frank (Bruiser) Kinard, whose prowess as a tackle has become-somewhat legendary in football circles, was named as the greatest Ole Miss athlete of all time by the Missis-sippian, campus newspaper. "Big Bruiser" was chosen by a poll of 41 Ole Miss, alumni and faculty members, and sports writers and, of these, 24 gave him a first place nod. Conducted by Bill Street, sports editor of the Mississippian, the results were determined on a point basis, with Kinard receiving 167 points. Run-nerup was Chunkin' Charley Conerly, the Ail-American halfback who set a new passing record in 1948, who got lOOVi points. Buster Poole, one-time end for the Rebs, had 44 points; Dr. I. C. Knox, now a Vicksburg doctor, received 42 points, and Parker Hall, another great Ole Miss passer, and All-American, and Junie Hovious tied with 39 points. Kinard will be recognized Saturday afternoon between halves of the annual Red-Blue game when he will be presented a certificate by the Mississippian. The game starts at 2:30. Walker Two-Sport Star The poll also broke down nominations for the best in" football, baseball and basketball. Bonnie Graham, Helms Foundation All-American in 1938 and at one time holder of 37 Southeastern Conference records in basketball was selected as the hardwood winner with 34 votes. Earl (Potts) Johnson of Jackson, All-Southern forward in 1926, and Oliver W. (Spout) Austin of the first basketball team of 1909 got one -vote each. Gerald (Gee) Walker of Columbia, S. C, won the baseball "greatest" designation. Walker a baseball and football player at Ole Miss in 1928-29 and was a member of the Southern Conference championship team of 1929. He later became better known for Former Klan Chief Stephenson Finally Gets Out Of Jail MICHIGAN CITY, Ind., D. C. Stephenson, 56, former Ku Klux Klan leader who once boasted "I am the law" in Indiana, was paroled after serving 25 years in prison for murdering a pretty Indiana statehouse worker. Stephenson, gray-hared, paunchy exgrand dragon of the Hoosier Klan,. was given his freedom by the State Prison Trustees subject only to a routine investigation by welfare authorities who must approve his job and residence plans. Stephenson was convicted in 1925 of killing Miss Madge Ober-holtzer, 28. The state charged she took poison in Hammond, Ind., humiliated by a vicious sexuar attack she said Stephenson made on her during a train trip. Stephenson never gave up fighting for his freedom from the time he entered prison. He made nearly 50 legal moves, charging offer than he was railroaded into a cell by politicians who feared him. Warden Alfred Dowd was expected to release Stephenson within a few days; Gov. Henry F. Schricker, who commuted his sentence and paved the way for his parole, said Stephenson planned to live and work in Tulsa, Okla., where his daughter lives.

Both Gerald and his brother. Hubby, were standout stars of the great independent baseball teams McComb fielded in Summers along about 1925 and 1926. The Walker brothers and other college diamond sharks played here during Summer vacations for several years. Dr. J. P. Evans of Gulfport, a member of the 1913-14 teams, was second in the baseball polling. Dr. Evans went to the ma jors, played third base with ' Cleveland's championship aggregation in 1920. Six votes went to the late R. B. Mitchell, who was an outstanding lefthander on Ole Miss teams from 1907 to 1910. Harvey (Hubby) Walker, another Rebel baseballer who went to the majors, got three votes, as did the late Cleve Hug-gins and James L.

He was the first man ever to be named to the All-American team from a Mis-s:ssippi school, and went on from Ole Miss to make all-professional aggregations while playing with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Yankees. He came o Ole Miss to coach in 1948. He recently led the field of tackles in the polling for Christy Walsh's .All-Time All-American. In 1936, Bruiser set an endurance record with 562 successive minutes on the field without relief. That year he played 702 of 708 minutes logged by the Rebels. And he was about as fast as they come for his size, clocking 10.4 seconds for the 100 in uniform. GIFT PROVES TIMELY VISALIA, Calif. (AP) Rev. and Mrs. Pedro Gonzales Car-ranza, of the Mission Evangelica Bautista tell his story: It was almost midnight on Christmas Eve and the pastor and his wife were troubled. They knew that within their -parish scores of poor youngsters would go giftless. They prayed. As they finished there was a knock on the door. "Perhaps it is a couple wishing to be married," sighed the clergyman. But the v'sitors turned out to be a Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Wilson. Wilson handed the pastor a piece of paper. "We want you to use this for the children," he said. The check was sufficient to buy gifts for more than 140 children. More than 250 species of aster are native to North America.
