Lawler said that waa a "lie." Hood said "to my knowledge nobody was ever recommended because he made a contribution X X there was no price tag on Jobs." Attorney Jackson contended he had no official connection with the group, that he was employed as their counsel by Hood and Rogers. The sub-committee, in its report, said the Murphys "were very active in collecting contributions on behalf of the committee, especially In connection with postoffice Jobs." "Being Made Goats" Mrs. Murphy claimed she and her husband were "being made the goats' for some one higher up. Murphy was dismissed from the post-office department after his appearance before the sub-committee. Mrs. Murphy told the sub-com mittee that she turned over all contributions always in cash, to Attorney Jackson. The sub-committee reported "there Is evidence that the Murphys between Nov. 15. 1950, and Feb. 2, 1951, received from six Individuals and deposited in their bank account a total of at least $2,500." E, Guy Moorehead of Wlnborn, an applicant for a postal Job, told the sub-committee that the pro- Truman committee told him there were no Jobs for sale "but you can make a voluntary contribution to the Mississippi Democratic commit' tee.' He testified he gave $1,000 to Attorney Jackson. Jackson admitted in the test! monv that he recommended to Hood fthat Moorehead be appointed, but denied mentioning a contribution as a requirement for getting the Job. Carl Frank Ferrell, also of Wlnborn, testified that Hood, said he understood "I was willing to pay $4,000 for the Job, but I told him that I did not have that kind of money and had no intention of paying it. Sidney R, Ayres, a third applicant for the aame Job, on a rural route,, said hi brother-in-law, Joel Hill, principal of the Holly Bluff school, paid $1,000 to a representative of the pro-Truman committee. Ayres i and Hill aaid the payment waa made 1 to salesman Debrow, but the $1,000 V i , . . i,( 'j ( it i - " - t ' i .. if ' i -., .'o ' "" 1 ' -- v ) y f a was returned several days later with the explanation from Debrow that tome one else had been recommended for the Job. Debrow told the senator that he was an Innocent victim of the whole transaction. Non-ExJatent Job In addition to the accusations In connection with the postal Jobs, the sub-committee heard that 14 non-existent Jobs went for $5,100. These payments, the committee was told, were for appointments aa supervisors of local rationing and price control boards. These Jobs were supposed to be In the counties of Perry, Wayne, George, Harrison, Lamar. Pearl River, Greene, Stone. Hancock, Wilkinson, Amite, Pike, Lawrence and Marion. Price-control authorities In Wash ington denied there were any such jobs available and denied they had authorized anyone to interview prospective appointees. 8 e n a to r Mundt described this angle of the investigations as "an interesting case of perjury" for the Justice department . Assistant Postmaster General Lawler told the senators he had warned two members of the pro-Truman group that "somebody is going to Jail." Lawler said he made this remark to Jackson and Rogers and, he added, he made It in language so strong that he did not rare to repeat the exact words before the committee. o . Boyle's Notebook SNAKE MONEY BY A WAYSIDE ROAD By HAL BOYLE ' RAPID CITY, S. D.(P) Snakes and people are iixe most relatives. They have a lot in common but they often don t get along well together. Earl Brockelsby, a 35-year-old war veteran, has found, however, that people are still more eager to see snakes than snakes are to see people. And he has made a profitable career by introducing them to each other. Here on the edge of the Black Hills where dinosaurs used to ramble and tourists now roam through petrified forests and hot dog stands he has built the largest collection of reptiles in America. "People have a natural interest in reptiles." he said. "Even those most terrified of them like the tnrui or seeing them." He started his Biacs huis reptue gardsn in 1936 with $400 loaned to him by a reluctant Banner. Editor's note: In 1936 all bankers were reluctant. With the $400 he managed to gather 100 snakes. He went out into the hills and caught most of them himself. He put them in a hut to small that even today it wouldn't sell for more than $10,000 if it were next to an army camp. He uses, it now as a kitchen. Brockelsby didn't nick anybody. Only 4,000 people stopped that first year to see his snakes. But in this world a smart man can parlay anything. Earl did It with snakes. Year after year he added more reptiles. He advertised. He began selling souvenirs. The war slowed him somewhat. He spent nearly three yars in the army, mostly overseas. But last year 200,-000 people paid their way Into his snake gardens. And today? Earl tells his story slowly and chooses his words, because he feels he doesn't need to brag. "We have 1.300 reptiles, more than any public or private roo In this country," he said. "And we have the largest souvenir store In America." It stocks hundreds of Items rang-Ing from Japanese-made ash trayt to home-manufactured gold earrings, Canadian moccasins, and scarft from Brooklyn. Earl, a tall, slim man who likes to drink the knowledge of living, collected snakes as a kid for fun, studied geology because of his thirst for knowing, and once thought he would spend his life In the scientific study of hypnosis. 11 Acre Estate The $400 hut he started with 15 years ago is now an 11 -acre estate of several buildings with a capital value of at least $200,000. And it grosses roughly about a quarter of a million dollars a year. He manufactures and ships souvenirs of the Black Hills and South Dakota bad lands to at least 20 states. He has about 35 employes and the sales girlt in his store are among the highest paid in the land. He learned that the best way to hypnotize them was to pay them a good percentage. He pays his girls seven per cent of each sale and he is proud to say that some girls make "up to $30 a day." Earl spends about $10,000 a year buying odd snakes from all parts of the world. This la his attitude toward both reptiles and customers: "I Just like them. I like anything that lives." (Note: This is the first of two columns about America's leading showman of reptiles.)

Among the few charter members who are still living in Collins and still are members of the church are Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Pope, Miss Amelia Blount and Buford C. Blount. Rev. J. L. Jordan was first pastor of the church. The original building was erected about 1002 when Rev. J. S. Rainer was pastor. The parsonage, which still is in use, was built In 1004 by Rev. Gus Harmon. Among former pastors of the church who are still living are Rev. W. M. Williams, now past 90 and residing in Magee; Rev. John W. Moore of Main Street church, Hattiesburg; Rev. J. D. Slay, Hattiesburg district superintendent; Rev. T. R. Holt of Terry; Rev. Swope Nob-lln of Mt. Olive; and Rev. A. W. Wilson of Bay Springs. The first church building was destroyed by a cyclone In 1924 when Rev. J. W. Thompson was pastor and the second church was built while Reverend Thompson was still there. His widow makes her home in Collins at the present time. New Building About six years ago, the church started raising funds for a new building. When Reverend Lewis, a veteran of 49 years of preaching in the Mississippi Methodist conference and former pastor of both Broad Street and Court Street churches in Hattiesburg, was appointed as pastor in June, 1050, the church had in hand between $9,000 and $10,000, Including the valuation of lumber in the old church. One of Reverend Lewis' first acts was to plan a Homecoming day at the church, which was he'd the second Sunday In July, 1950. More than $6,000 was raised on this one day. Shortly afterwards, the contract for the new building was let. to J. C. Dickens and Bros, of Collins. Plans for the church had been approved previously. Ground-breaking was held Aug. 7, . ft k 7 ,5 .

Building Committee Reverend Lewis' eyes sparkle when he tells of the new building and the efforts which have made It possible. He gives a great deal of the credit for success of the project to members of the building committee. "Through their cooperation and ability to get hold of materials either donated or at cost, we have been able to get constructed what many people say is a $65,000 church for less than $45,000," the gray-haired but spry pastor said. "The church now owes only $6,000 on the building and hopes to pay it by December, when we will entertain the Hattiesburg District conference."

Wall Street Wizard Found Innocent NEW YORK, July 21 (IF) A new chapter has been written in the saga of Serge Rubinstein, the controver sial international financier who started life as the son of a financier for the last Russian czar. Rubinstein, once convicted of draft dodeinir. tearful v hparH n fpHprnl court Jury acquit him yesterday on cnarges or mail fraud and securities law violations. If the jury had convicted him on all the counts in two indictments, the 43 -year-old financier would have faced a maximum of 20 years in Jail and $30,000 in fines. The verdict after two hours' deliberation, was greeted by cheers and applause from friends of Rubinstein in the courtroom, forcing Federal Judge Charles Dewey to order the room cleared. Rubinstein rushed to the Jury box to thank the eight men and four women Jurors, Later he told newsmen: "I am a great believer In American Justice. I believe that the Jurors expressed that high principle. During the trial, which lasted 20 court days, the government accused Rubinstein of swindling investors out of $2,000,000 to $3,000,000 by rig gtng common stock of Panhandle Producing and Refining company through false and misleading state ment regarding its prospects. For Rubinstein, the trial was the latest In financial affairs on four continents that have built up a reputed $5,000,000 personal fortune. His father, Dmitri, fled to Paris when Rubinstein was 10 years old. Securities were sewn hi the lining of the boy't clothes. After studies In economics In Eng land, Rubinstein went to Paris to help his brother In a banking bust ness. In 1935, at the age of 27, Ru blnsteln was expelled from France by then Premier Pierre Laval, who said the emigre's speculations en dangered the franc. Rubinstein came to the U.S. In 1038, and soon became known as the "boy wonder" of Wall Street, But following World War II, he was convicted of draft dodging and sent to a federal penitentiary for two years. He said he feared this conviction might lnflnenre the Jurors in their deliberations yesterday on the Pan handle case. However, a woman Juror remarked: "None of us would allow his conviction for draft dodging to affect our Judgment on the facts In this case." YUGOSLAV STREET NAMES KEEP CHANGING BELGRADE (P) It's little wonder that Yugoslavs these days hardly know what to call home. Back In prewar years, the better streets of the country's cities and villages wpre named for former kings. Then Germany's legions marched in. King Al-eksander Boulevard became Ado'.f Hitler Strasse. Then came war's end, Germany's defeat, liberation for Yugoslavia with Bovlet help. Down toppled the Adolf Hitler street corner signs. Up went those re-baptlzlng the streets to commemorate the glory of Stalin and his Red army marshals. Then, in 1948, came the split between Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia and the Russian-led Cominform. Once again, the sign painters had work to do. Slowly but surely, the names of streets honoring Stalin and the Russians are being renamed back, curiously enough, to the names they had before the war. Pity the post office clerks and the cab drivers. CHURCH ACTIVITIES The W. M. V. of First Baptist church will meet at 3:30 p. m. Monday at the church.

The well flowed at the rate of 209 barrels of 38.0 degree gravity oil and 78 barrels of salt water per day through 1264 inch choke with a flowing tubing pressure of 650 pounds per square inch. Production is from the Upper three feet of a 12-foot section of saturated tand and gravel between 10.5AO and 10,-572 feet Bait water production was due to the fact that no definite Impermeable barrier existed between oil and water sands. Several weeks ago this test creat ed considerable excitement when sour gas (hydrogen sulphide) was produced while testing the Smack-over Lime formation below 14,000 feet; however, laboratory analyses established a 93 4 per cent carbon dioxide content for this product which made untenable possibilities of completing the well as a commercial sulphur producer. The well was drilled on a "block" of approximately 16.000 acres which was leased by Continental after much detailed seismic exploration. Due to this fact. It seems feasible that additional drilling in the near future will be forthcoming.
