(About 8:30 ajii. EST) New Delhi reports ,said Nehru promptly dispatched a reply, the contents of which were not known. Act of AsrsrcssUm American officials said Achosnn held in his reply to Nehru that the heart, of the Korean problem now is the act of aggression which he charges the Russian sponsored North Korean refiirm'committed in invading South Korea. Acheson stressed that American policy, under the U.N. reso^ition denouncing the Communist attack aims at restoring South Korea's freedom and independence. The question of Communist China's membership in the U.N. Is a separate Issue to be settled on its merits by the decision of a majority of UN members, Acheson reportedly told Nehru. The U. S. has supported the Chinese Nationalist delegation to 1. and opposed Russia's de- it be replaced by Chinese Communists. The Russians hav stayed away from U.N. meetings fo the past six months because the Chinese Communists were not »d mitted. Nehru's Sincerity State Department officials said they respected Nehru's sincerity, in .lending hts personal messages on the Korean situation to Stalin and Acheson last week. They obviously hoped he would understand and accept the American attitude. Nonetheless, some officials said that- Nehru's efforts to act AS a go-between in the situation which they consider impossible of compromise have created a difficult propaganda problem for the United Btates abroad, particularly In Asia where Nehru'i prestige and leader- <oreon Situation Called Repetition Of Pearl Harbor WASHINGTON, July 19.

We doubt if they said "There Isn't Any Use of Our Fighting Russia." In Fact We KNOW THEY DIDN'T ! ! ! Reprinted Below Is An Ad Which Appeared In The Chicot County Spectator On July 7, 1950. We Think it Makes Sense. So Will All Thinking People. Therefore It Is Printed Again for All To Read — TWCMr* , My 1, 1 CLEAR-THINKING VOTERS WILL BEAR THESE FACTS IN MIND! The present Governor of Arkansas has been » office eighteen months. Since taking office, he has launched a major and badly needed road building program for the State of Arkansas— a .program he advocated when he first announced for Governor two years ago. These roads are going to mean a great help to Chicot county. They represent something our people have desired for a long, long time. We, who have subscribed our names below, believe that it is but simple gratitude and good common sense to vole to re-elect for his second term the Governor who has made it possible for us to have these roads. We feel that we should be proving ourselves thankless and ungrateful if we opposed his re-election out of caprice or for some mere whim. We have heard and think but little of the criticism that Governor McMath is a liberal and that his attitude toward President Truman is too friendly. The dictionary defines the noun "liberal" as a person who believes in progress. We fail to see how Arkansas has anything to gain by electing a reactionary Governor, who isindifTerent toward progress, or one who is avowedly antagonistic toward the President of the United States. In this connection, we recall that Senator Joe T. Robinson, who was perhaps the greatest Senator Arkansas ever had, w«s on friendly terms with all the Presidents who held office while he served our State in Washington—Republicans and Democrats alike. We think it is to the distinct advantage of any Slate that its Governor have some kind of reasonable working relation with the Nation's Chief Executive. This is no brief for the man who now occupies the White House. We do not see cye-to-eye with him about a good many things. Neither does Governor McMath, as he has very plainly stated on a number of occasions. £*-ELECT GOVERNOR ». C. Ch.l. Ulrkt Nevertheless, the present occupant of the White House is the President of these United States. As the duly-elected head of our Republic he is entitled to our respect. The scurrilous jokes relating to the alleged "friendship" between President Truman and Governor McMath that were put in circulation about the time this gubernatorial campaign began were never in good tasU. They are definitely but of place at the present time. Our Country may be on the brink of war. An aggressor more determined than any we have heretofore had to deal with is on the prowl. Right now American planes are being shot down over Korea and American lives are being sacrificed upon the altar of freedom. A major conflict perhaps more terrible than any the world has yet known now impend. Terrific responsibilities now weigh upon the shoulders of the President of the United States. Instead of belittling him at this time, we need to be praying that his hands may prove strong and that he may be given the judgment and the foresight to make right decisions. We believe he is entitled to the good will, the help and the moral support of every worthy, decent citizen. We hereby re-affirm our allegiance to our President, who, whether we have so wished it or not, will continue at the head of our Government and as the Commander-in-chief of our Armed Forces for the next two years. We hereby re-affirm our faith and confidence in Governor McMath, who seems to have earnestly tried to make Arkansas a good Governor, and who, just a few short years ago, proved his manhood and his love of country on the flaming, bomb-scarred beaches of Bouganville. We are going to vote to give him a sdcond term as Governor of Arkansas. The Cmttructivt DEMOCRATIC Candidate For A Second Term WIN 1. trrtm fc^MvwtlM «L A. W.4r»»o> >. I. Fort.
