The detective recognized the slip —nart of a S220 housebreaking my chiffon blouse—and that was haul, he told a court here. The magistrate ordered Freda to stand trial.

EXPERT WATER PUMP REPAIR Hubbard Hardwart Phone 2-2tl5 By NBA Foreign Service KARACHI, Pakistan—(NEA)— The native industrial worker looked surly and clearly insulted. He'd been patiently doing his job in the best way he knew how,, when along came -a man from America— a so-called "technical expert''— to say he could do it better. The worker turned to his foreman in disgust. "Tell him I've done this for years," he said, and back he turned to his work. The workmen around him nodded in silent; agreement. The "expert" merely smiled and waited for lunch hour to come. Then, when the worker had left, he sat at the man's crude bench. and ground himself a tool. By the time the. lunch hour ended, the bench was covered with parts-each as neatly finished as those of the veteran workman, and finished in half the time. The native was properly impressed. His angry indifference melted and so did that of the others. -Convinced that the softspoken foreigner indeed knew what he was doing, they clustered around with questions. Another small Pakistan factory was aimed toward greater output through usage of modern methods. * * * The expert was George D. Thomas, an experienced engineer for the U. S. Foreign Operations Administration. His job. is to better production methods in small local plants and shops. And the way he's been going about it is an excellent lesson in diplomacy, which mirrors today's approach in American foreign aid—an approach that strengthens production while winning us staunch new friends. Soon after he came here, as part of a one-year contract, .Thomas conducted 'a survey which quickly defined his problem. The native workers skilled and intelligent, but their methods were crude and slow. They needed information on modern production methods. Thomas soon decided that bringing fancy aids of high-powered modern industry would not give a workable answer. Besides being very costly, it; would take many months or years for the workers to learn to use them. * * • The way he chose, instead, was to let the men keep the tools and materials: they already had, while teaching them how to use them better. And the payoff has been amazing—boosting production in many plants by as much as 400 per cent. A striking but typical example is the workman who used a hammer to flatten out" yards of fiber packing. Not six feet from where he squatted was a modern adjustable roller which he never had thought'of using. Thomas showed him how, and a job that took many minutes today is completed in seconds. At first, the workers were hostile. But Thomas has won them FHEN YOU'LL VOTE FOR FAUBUS! COMPARE THE MAN, COMPARE THE PLATFORMS, YOU TOO WILL KNOW THAT FAUBUS SHOULD BE GOVERNOR THE MAN AMERICAN METHODS introduced in Pakistan factory by expert George Thomas (left) saws out six piston .rings at a time. NATIVE APPROACH to making a large piston ring in this Pakistan factory calls for a man with a saw and 16 hours of labor. over by his habit of working with the men. • • * His services, through FOA, never are forced on anyone. The government has, made it known that his know-how is free of charge to any shop-owner who wants it, and applications are many. His work has been so succcess- ful that the U. S. and Pakistan government will build an industrial Research Center at Lashore, the captial of Punjab. Pakistani fore men and craftsmen will be trained in modern industrial methods, streamlining private industry in a key anti-Communist bulwark. For owners who politely warn him that his friendship with the workers is bad for discipline, Thomas has a stock reply. Spanning the labor-managment gap, he stresses, is not only good for labor relations, it's the doorknob to greater efficiency. Read Courier News Classified Ads.

He has pledged to keep down taxes. No attempt will be made if Faubus is elected Governor to raise your state taxes. Faubus can accomplish more with the same money through economy and efficiency. UTILITY RATES Orval Faubus owes no allegiance to the utility companies. He has promised to hold the line on utility rates. He will appoint a Public Service Commission that will deal fairly and lawfully with every Arkansas citizen. FEED, SEED, FERTILIZER Orval Faubus is against the sales tax on seed, feed and fertilizer. He has stated he would sign any bill the legislature presented to him destroying this crippling tax. Farming is an important Arkansas industry. Faubus will do everything possible to protect the best interests of farmers. WELFARE Orval Faubus does not believe in penalizing those who try to help themselves. He has promised you he will stamp out this program of do-nothingness and institute a revised much improved welfare system. FRANCIS CHERRY 100% ASSESSMENT Francis Cherry said: "I would rather see this bill become law as to be Governor of Arkansas." Until the primary on July 27th, Cherry campaigned hard to pass the 100% assessment plan and raise your property taxes five to seven times. The overwhelming majority against him on July 27th convinced Francis Cherry he should soft pedal the 100% assessment issue until after August 10th. UTILITY RATES Francis Cherry stated: "I have never been consulted by the Public Service Commission on any rate case — and I'd better not be. 1 don't expect to be consulted and I don't want to be consulted about anything/' This disinterested attitude from the Chief Executive of our state has already cost Arkansas citizens over eight million dollars increase in their annual utility bills. While Francis Cherry has been in office the Public Service Commission has granted the utility companies: Two telephone rate increases. One electric rate increase. A gas rate increase. FEED, SEED, FERTILIZER During his campaign two years ago, Francis Cherry stated he thought the poultry raisers, livestock raisers and dairymen should not have to pay sales tax on seed, feed and fertilizer. A bill prohibiting this tax was later passed by the Legislature and Cherry reversed his promise and vetoed this bill. He is directly responsible for the FEED, SEED and FERTILIZER TAX. WELFARE Under the present program, any effort to help yourself is penalized. Those earnest, honest people who try to help themselves have been lopped from the welfare rolls. Francis Cherry stated: "More than 10,000 people have been lopped from the welfare rolls. These old deadheads won't vote for me, but 1 don't want votes from deadheads anyway/' Is a cbse friend . , . or member of yowr family in the Cherry "DEADHEAD" category?
