THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1954 BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COtJUIER NEWS PAGE FIVE State Hospital Patient Killed by Police After Terrorizing Homes LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Shouting, "Come and get me, I want to die," a crazed carpenter pushed a woman hostage at gun point onto her front porch then stepped through the door to his death in a hail of bullets from an off-duty policeman's gun. • H. B. Long, 42, an escapee from the Arkansas State Mental Hospital yesterday held Mrs. A. D. Lynn captive in her home while he deliberated his next move and repeatedly shouted to police: "You'll have to come get me, I want to die. I don't want to go back to that lie-place." Mrs. Lynn said. "I felt sorry for him and tried to talk him into giving up his gun. I told him that was better than death, but he wouldn't listen." Long was on his way from his ward to the barber shop when he bolted the line and escaped. During his shortlived freedom he terrorized persons in -West Little Rock by brandishing a .22 caliber rifle. Entering the home of Mrs. Effie Callihan, he said: "I won't hurt you. I. just can't go back to that lie-place." He left after Mrs. Callihan gave him a bottle of water. Long found Mrs. Lynn in her backyard and ordered her into the house. He asked if she knew anyone who owned a car. "I need a car to get away," he said. Mrs. Lynn said she began dialing the telephone but Long suddenly jerked the receiver from her hand. "I've changed my mind," he told her. A neighbor. A. Lewis, had heard the commotion in the yard and called police. A dozen officers surrounded the house and called to the man to surrender. When Long refused a policeman asked if he would free Mrs. Lynn. Long then began marching Mrs. Lynn through the house and onto the front porch. Mrs. Lynn walked calmly — 'as if she were on her NON-FATTENING! Sweetens Instantly Easy to Us* Liquid For Coffee, Tea, All Foods way shopping," one officer said — although Long was behind her with a gun at her back. Long was covering Mrs. Lynn with the rifle he had taken from a house in the neighborhood. Gene Smtih, an off-duty policeman, was the only officer who had a clear side view of Long. Smith started firing and Mrs. Lynn immediately stepped away. Long fell under a fusilade of six shots—only one missed the target. As he rolled to the ground, he groaned; •'Thanks fellows...That's good enough, it's just what I wanted." A moment later he was dead. STEVENSON (Continued from Page 1) rect reference to Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis). " Stevenson devoted a substantial part of his address to business and how he said it prospered under Democratic presidents. "For every three business enterprises existing in this country when the Democrats took office in 1933, there were four by 1953," he said. "The rate of business failures during the so-called Golden 20s was 20,000 a year. But that figure dropped to only 6,000 a year even during the hard post-World War n period of adjustment from war to peace to "defense mobilization. "Corporation profits after taxes were more than twice as high in 1952 as in the Republican peak year Of 1929."

If so you can submit your selection to Frank Harshman. president of the Blytheville Junior Chamber of Commerce. The project to select the nation's outstanding young men between the ages of 21 to 35 is conducted annually by the U. S. Junior Chamber of Commerce. Continued from Page 1 information about it issued officially. French Premier Pierre Mendes- France, whose consent to the plan Eden still is seeking, presided. No debate had ben scheduled on Eden's presentation, and he and Mendes-France left the meeting after it was finished. The others ( remained to talk about plans for j a meeting of the members 'foreign i ministers, which the United States asked after France turned down the European Defense Community. Eden's success or failure depended on his final talks this after. noon with Premier Pierre Mendes- France, whose lack of enthusiasm for the six-nation European Defense Community helped the French National Assembly scuttle that keystone of Western policy. In his search for a substitute for EDC, Eden has won support for his new plan from the leaders of the other five members of the ill-fated European Army plan— West Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. British Back Arming' The British, who backed EDC but would not join it. propose to link a rearmed West Germany and Italy to the Brussels mutual defense pact signed in 1948 b'y Britain, France and the Benelux trio. The alliance presumably would operate undfer the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which has taken over the military phases of the Brussels pact. Unlike the one- uniform international army which EDC would have set up. each country would retain control of its own troops, but limits would be placed on German rearmament. The big hurdle was to get France to accept such an arrangement. Eden and Mendes-France spent six hours together yesterday discussing the German rearmament issue without coming to any conclusion. Iran's Chief Counter-Spy Jailed as Red TEHRAN. Iran I?—The Iranian Army's chief counter intelligence agent for the strategic Abadan oil area has been jailed in the sweeping cleanup of Soviet Spies in j Iran's security forces. j The top plainclothes agent in j Khuzistan Province, Capt. Gholam j Hossein Gargaozloo, was the lead- j er of 133 operatives assigned to I work against Red spies around the.J( Abadan oil refinery on the Per- ' sian Gulf. The captain went undei* the name of "Mr. Moghadam." Authorities arrested Garagozloo yesterday, charging that he himself was a Russian spy. Nearly 500 officers in the army and police force have been caught up in the nationwide drive against spies. The number eventually taken into custody may exceed 1.000 officials said, since the lower military and police ranks have not yet come under extensive investi- j gation. The purge also is being j extended to civil branches of the ' government. Intelligence officers said the ring using algebraic equations ^,s coctes, slipped the Reds not only Iranian j _ secrets but detailed information j i on "every tank, gun and uniform" i the United States has been supplying Iran. Army informants said Gen. Alex- j andef Rodionov. military attache in the Russian Embassy, played,a key role in the vast spy system.
