The highest mark ever reached in Faubus' fluctuating majority was slightly more than 10,000 votes. Faubus showed his expected strength irt the rural sections and he wrested away from Cherry some more populous counties, including Sebastian, Miller, Ouachita and Mississippi, in all of which the governor led at the first primary.

Cherry ran first by a small margin in his home county of Craighead, but Faubus had an overwhelming majority in his home county of Madison. In all Faubus yesterday led in 56 counties and Cherry in 19.

Stability Soug-ht Eisenhower called them steps toward a stable economy and therefore measures which will benefit everyone. The economy — the White House is preparing a report on the American economy as "of mid-year 1954 and the report shows y hopeful picture, the president said. He added that the survey will be made public in a day or so. In a related field, Eisenhower said he did not care to speculate at this time whether it will be possible to cut income taxes next vear and balance the federal budget. Speech on congress — the chief executive disclosed he is at work on an address reviewing the accomplishments of congress. He declined to shec 1 any light on just when he will make the speech, and laughingly declined to say anything about such accomplishments until the session has been completed. Cabinet — the president announced he will be host Friday to the members of his cabinet at his i Mountain Lodge retreat at Camp i David near Thurmor' Md., about 165 miles north of Washington. There I will be a light lunch, the president said, a buffet supper in the evening AA (Continued from Page 1) the blood stream of an alcoholic while only 10 per cent goes into the blood stream of an average drinker. * * * ALCOHOL TO an alcoholic is like sugar to a diabetic. Neither can ever safely use the substances. The only difference between the two conditions is that a diabetic is not born, whereas some alcoholics are. If a diabetic goes into a coma right after having tasted enough alcohol to leave the odor on his breath, a doctor cannot determine if the person is a diabetic or an alcoholic. The two comas produce the same conditions in the body. Some people are alcoholics and do not know it. They are not aware of it even when they take aldohol into their bodies for the first time. They are what is known as the "born alcoholics." There is the man who will not admit that he cannot take a drink; there is the type who believes that after a period of sobriety he can take a drink without danger; there is the maniac-depressive type the least understood by his friends; then there are the types who appear completely normal in every respect except for .the effect that alcohol has on them. All of these types have one thing in common — they cannot start drinking without developing the phenomenon of craving. No way has been found to completely eradicate this craving. Only relief that has stinence. been found is total ab- WHY DOES AN alcoholic begin drinking in the first place?

That's right, we said "in the City of Blytheville." , G. O. (Doc) Poetz brought an open boll as a sample of his "crop" status on what he termed "my largest plantation."

The head usually is chested. more until a craving for it was established. Alter this was established, it is found that the body must have alcohol to function "normally." One drink, it was found, would steady the shaky hands and clear the foggy brain and put the alcoholic back on what he thought was an even keel. It is usually at this time, I am told, that an alcoholic loses the distinction between the real and the unreal. His world is not normal unless he is under the constant influence of alcohol. On top of the old original fear is stacked new fears and illusions. Whenever a difficult task presents itself, he must first prepare himself for the test by taking a drink. He thinks this makes his brain sharper, his hands steadier. His self confidence is restored. OCCASIONALLY a great loss or shock in the life of a heavy drinker will seem to snap him out of it. He will regain his equilibrium and find himself able to stop drinking. This is seldom the case of the real alcoholic for the tragedy will only add to his many other fears and reasons to escape into the alco- PO//O Epidemic Hits LOS ANGELES (JP'j — Polio has reached epidemic proportions in Los Angeles, the City Health Department says, and this month and next compromise the peak period for the disease.

Priced Right Dirtributor For FIRESTONE TIRES THE TEXAS CO Bob Logan Consignee Blytheville Phone 3-3391—Joiner Phone 2421 Suspect Arrested in Largest 1-Man Bank Robbery in History JACKSONVILLE, Fla. UP)—Nattily dressed George Patrick McKinney, 27, who went broke operating a premium car agency here under another name, is under arrest or single-handedly robbing a Floral Park, N.Y. bank of more than $190,000 a year ago. The haul was "one of the largest amounts ever obtained by a lone bandit in a bank robbery," said Edward J. Powers, special agent in charge of the FBI in Florida. The FBI arrested McKinney yesterday a few minutes after he reported for duty on -a new job, as medical exterr at the Duval Medical Center. 10-Month Deception He had lived here over 10 months as Wade Patrick Johnson apparently an up and coming businessman until his car business folded. A rogue's gallery picture that had been posted only 24 hours — in connection with a burglary in California — led to his capture. A woman noticed the picture m the post office at nearby Arlington, Fla., and called the FBI which linked him with the bank robbery through, fingerprints. The FBI declined to identify the woman. McKinney, a mild-mannered, tall brunet type with closely cropped wavy hair, at first insisted his real name was Johnson but later admitted his identity. He denied both the bank robbery and the burglary. No money was found on him and he claimed he had none, an agent said. Powers said an investigation is underway to determine what happened to the fortune seized in the robbery of the Floral Park office of the Franklin National Bank on Aug. 18, 1953, and McKinney's activities since. TJ.S. Commissioner T. V. Casehn set a temporary bond o $200,000. A hearing will be held when witnesses are brought here from New York. Powers said victims of the bank robbery examined McKinney's photograph and positively identified him as the bandit, McKinney disappeared without a trace after the robbery but agents said he left good fingerprints in a car used in the job. McKinney is reported to have lived here from early 1952 until 1953, working as an automobile salesman. He moved to New York and married there on July 20, 1953, a month before the robbery. On Oct. 21, 1953, under the name of Johnson, he bought out E. O. Clifton Motors, dealer in Packard automobiles here, for 366,000. He sold the agency in May after losing about $86,000, he s aid, and went to work as a used car salesman. Duval Medical Center hired him as a medical extern when he applied for employment as a medical student Monday. He told the FBI he had been a medical student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, for three years. The California charge against McKinney was based on a complaint filed Jan. 9, 1952, before the U.S. Commissioner in Los Angeles accusing him of unlawful light to avoid prosecution for burglary. He previously had been convicted of [petty theft and passing bogus checks, the FBI said. holic world. N^'ons is able to draw definitely the line where a heavy two-fisted drinker stops and where an alcoholic begins. The transition is slow. In most cases the alcoholic will f- that because of his drinking, he makes mistakes in business and slowly begins to lose out. This only adds . to the reason for drinking. He begins to find himself unable to face the world alone without the aid of alcohol. This is the point when the alcoholic really loses control of his life. He soon finds that he cannot do Without alcohol and, at the same time, he cannot continue to live as he is. What, then, can he do to stop this craving for alcohol and restore himself to a way' of life he has left far behind? First, he must be restored to _'ood physical health, according to a line of action recommended by the AA. Then he must achieve the proper mental outlook to be able to receive the much-desired aid he is striving for. Only after these two factors havj been- established, it is said, can he be ready for the spiritual side of the recovery program.

Taught at 18 But Faubus began teaching when he was 18, before he had even entered high school. His first assignment was that of teaching 74 pupils in all eight grades in a one- room building in Pinnacle, Ark. Shortly after he finished high school, Faubus heard that woodsmen in Washington State were earning good wages and left for the northwest. He started as "faller" on the working end of a crosscut saw, but sOon was promoted to woods superintendent of the Biles-Coleman Lumber Co. Between school terms, Faubus -worked as an itinerant fruit worker, harvesting strawberries from Arkansas to Michigan and traveling free on freight trains. Returning to Madison County Faubus entered politics in 1936 losing a race for the state House of Representatives by four votes Faubus congratulated the winner in a newspaper advertisement anc thus attracted the attention of Democratic party leaders in the county, who were working to promote party unity in the face of a strong Republican threat. Two years later, with the party's backing, Faubus was elected circuit clerk and recorder. In 1940 he was re-elected, and won the nomination for county judge in 1942. However, before the year ended he enlisted in the Army and his wife, the former Miss Alta Haskins of Japta, Ark., whom he married in 1931, finished out Ms term as circuit clerk. Rose to Major Faubus entered the Army as a private, and was discharged four years later with the rank of major, which he still holds in the Army reserve. \ Shortly after leaving military service, Faubus was named postmaster of Huntsville. He resigned to help former ,• Gov. McMath in 1948, and stayed on to serve in McMath's administration. Faubus' first post under McMath wa s a seat on the Highway Commission. He soon found that most of his time was occupied by state business, and realized he needed a salaried job to remain in state service. So, he welcomed a, chance to resign from the commission and become administrative assistant to the former governor. Late in 1952, Faubus was appointed highway director by McMath to succeed Olen Fullerton who resigned. There were some complaints at the time that Faubus wasn't qualified to serve under the law which says the director must be an experienced engineer. But his qualifications never were challenged in court and Faubus served until he was relieved by the Cherry-appointed Highway Commission. When he left state service, Faubus returned to Huntsville to continue operating his newspaper, the Madison County Record, and serve once more as postmaster. He resigned the federal job to make his successful race for governor.

As finally approved, such supports are discretionary with" the Secretary of Agriculture. The only administration setback in the Senate came last night on a vote to revoke an order by Secretary of Agriculture Benson that farmer committeemen may not serve more than three consecutive one-year terms. Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn) attacked the Benson order as autocratic and offered an amendment to ban such ac'.ion. Aiken insisted Benson's order was justified to break up "closed corporations" in some farmer committees. After considerable political bickering, Humphrey's proposal was approved by a hairline 45-44 margin. Aiken said he would seek to eliminate the provisions in the Senate House conference. Senate Passes Pay Hike for Federal Jobs WASHINGTON W — The Senate today passed and sent to the louse a bill boosting salaries of more than two million federal employes by 5 per cent a year. Half a million postal workers, for whom the House early this week voted a 7 per cent pay hike, are inclur" under terms of the Senate bill. The Senate attached the pay raise to a minor House bill. Sen. Carlson (R-Kas), chairman of the Senate Post Office Committee, has said this will permit the measure to go straight to the floor of the House for action, thus by-passing its committees. The Senate bill is estimated to cost around 340 million dollars * year. , MISSCO (Continued from Page 1) the retnrns from yesterday's election.
