He angled in toward the middle Of the field and then cut back to the -sideline again as his blockers bowled over the defenders and made a clear path to the goal. But tbe thrills didn't end with that 75-yard TD run. Blytheville's Jimmy Gee recovered a Malvern fumble on the Chick 46 a fe\v plays later and the Chicks, set back by a penalty and a loss of 16 yards when. Akers was caught trying to pass, found themselves on their own 27 yard line with a fourth down and 23 yards to go for a first down. Abbott went back to kick, but fche daring Chicks went through the fake kick routine with Akers cutting back behind Abbott for. the old Statue of Liberty handoff — except that Abbott didn't give him the ball. 18-Yarder He fnked the handoff to Akers, kept It himself and tore around right end, completely baffling the defense, He still had to go through almost the entire Malvern team, however, and after running over three or four tacklers he picked up a pair of tremendous blocks from Gee and Bobby Jones and scurried 73 yards for the touchdown. Akers' fifth try of the night for the point after was good and Blytheville led 31-7 with 1:30 left in the third period. The remainder of the game Was turned over to Chick reserves who did P good job of halting the potent Malvern ground attack, but relaxed once too often on puss defense and gave up the Leopards' .second touchdown midwjiy in the fourth period.

Considering Profrram Also present were Assistant Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz and Prod Seaton, deputy assistant to President Elsenhower. Butz reported the government has been considering a hog buying program but he did not know when one, could be put into effect. "We don't want to buy more than we can use," he said. The conference, however, said in regar dto emergency measures, "We cannot urge too strongly that such measures be taken as quickly as possible." Gov. Fred Hall of Kansas when asked for comment after the meeting said: "All being Republican governors we had 1956 very much in mind when we wrote that statement. We want the national administration to take our program seriously, to respect our position In the matter and to give us the help which is politically necessary." Sour-Point Program Th« four-pome program calls for: 1. Purchasing and support program of farm commodities for use, and not for destruction "to relieve j the farm price squeeze which has| been developing for many years." 2. Short term emergency measures "to restore to the farmer his fair share of the national income and to place him -on an equitable basis with the rest of our nation's economy." 3. Creation by the states themselves ot committees of fanners and farm related industries to improve sale and distribution of all farm products. 4. Consideration by the Department of Agriculture and Congress of a national soil conservation policy encouraging farmers to "store fertility in-land not needed for current production against the day when our expanding population or national emergency will require additional food and fiber."

Adlai Decides But Keeps Quiet KINGSTON. Ont. (/P) — Forni'-r ; Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois said j [ last night he has made his mind up I on whether he will be a contender i for the Democratic presidential i i nomination. But he kept his den-i i sion to himself. • ; j He said if he is "offered" the i ; Democratic nomination, as he was i I at Chicago in 1952. he would accept ! "My impression is. however, that j I will not be so offered the nomlna- i ' tion." he said. j , "I plan to make known my stand j ! in the near future," he told report- ; 1 ers at a news conference. He is in | Kingston to receive an honorary' degree at Queen University today. He also said he was 'very confident" of a Democratic victory in the presidential election in November 1956. Two Accidents * Are SW Bell, Union Continue Talks ST. LOUIS (&>—A new negotiating session—the fourth this week- was scheduled today by representatives of the Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. and the CIO Communications Workers Union. Neither side reported much progress after a long meeting yesterday, but at the same time spokesmen for both groups avoided any word of pessimism in describing the meeting. The union is seeking a 10-cent hourly raise while the company has held fast to an earlier 5'-i-cent offer. Pay for the firm's 51,003 union employes ranges from S42 to $100 a week. '' School to Keep Segregation REYNO. Ark. MP)—The Biggers- Reyno School Board last night re- scienried Its racial integration order and announced it had decided to continue segregated schools this fall In this tiny town in the northeast corner of Arkansas. An earlier announcement' said schools would be integrated Oct. 24. when classes re-open after a recess to permit rural children to help with j the cotton harvest. Glen Cox. a member of the board, said the, action was taken after a mother wrote the board to ask tha: integration be on a voluntary basis. Cox said White America, Inc.. a pro-segregation group, had offered i to pay $150 toward the expenses oft two Negro students who will be sent j to school at Pocahontas and Jones-1 boro. (Continued from Page 1) for the first time, his cardiogram— indicating status of the heart heal:n« process—had "stabilized at a satisfactory level." Slow Com in i Only hust Sunday, Dr. Paul Dudley White, eminent Boston heart specialist, reported that stabilization—an eagerly awaited mile- ..tone—-WHS slow in coining in Eisenhower's case. And While indicated it might have been longer in coming than it actually was. White reported at the same time. however, that the President already had progressed to a point where development of dreaded complications wns unlikely—would, in fact, be a rarity. And the doctor outlined a more liberal hospital routine starting today. During this fourth week of recovery, White said, Eisenhower could count on being permitted to sit up a bit for the first time. And he added: "We are going to get him sitting up more each day, being lifted at first into a chair where he can be comfortably looking out the window, for example; and a little more of that every day until at the end of the week he may be sitting up practically all day, out of bed." There was no advance word whether the doctors would let him out of bed for the first'time this first day of the fourth week. During the last week, at wll spaced intervals, the President has had conferences with Vice President Nixon and Secretary of State Dulles. The arrival of Humphrey today starts a new period of convalescence during which it may be possible, beginning now, for Eisenhower to hold conferences daily. White said Sunday. To Meet Wilson The President already has meetings booked for Monday with Secretary of Defense Wilson and Adm{ Arthur W. Radford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The doctors have estimated he will be in the hospital until about Nov. 5, or possibly a week longer until Nov. 12. For Eisenhower, his birthday yesterday was indeed a happy one. Among the remembrances he undoubtedly cherished most was a bouquet of red roses and autumn flowers from the family homestead garden or his late mother at Abilene, Kan. From the President's Cabinet, the White House staff and Republican party units in all 48 states- came gifts for the Elsenhower's new country home at Gettysburg, Pa.—flowering .quince and Norway spruce trees for the lane leading from the highway, and a garden of flowering plants and shurbs for the semicircular driveway in front of the house. On behalf of the White House staff, Sherman Adams, wrote the Hitler's Death Certificate To Be Delayed BERCHTESGADEN. Germany W) — A magistrate's court here an. nounced yesterday it will postpone issuance of a formal death certificate for Adolf Hitler until till 9.626 German prisoners whose freedom has been promised by the Russians are home. The court had been expected to issue a death certificate soon that the Fuehrer committed suicide in his Berlin air raid bunker April 30, 1945. Hitler's valet. Heinz Linge and pilot, Hans Baur, who have returned to West Germany in recent POW transports, have given eyewitness accounts of the Fuehrer's last hours. MARGARET (Continued from Page 1) of London. Left Separately They met as darkness fell last night at Allenbay Hall, a stately red brick mansion of Margaret's cousin. Mrs. John Lycet Wills. The couple drove separately from London, for most Britons, ii was a secret meeting. In fact, when he left the home of his London host, the marquis of Abergavenney, and headed west at the wheel of his snappy French car. Townsend was reported en route to see his widowed mother Mrs. Gladys Townsend at- her Somerset cottage Townsend arrived at Binfield early in the afternoon. He went for a ride with Mrs. Wills while waiting for Margaret. Mrs. Wills, a niece of the Queen Mother, is the wife of a tobacco magnate. Meanwhile, the Princess had slipped out of Clarence House by a little-used side entrance. She drove off in her black Rolls-Royce, with the shades down, and arrived at Binfield about three hours after Townsend. With her was her lady in waiting Iris Peake. who received Townsend's letters and passed them on to Margaret during the two years he has spent in '•exile" in Brussels. GOP f ATOTT1AT, OCTOBER M, —. • ' ' ' - '•I Negro Deaths (Continued from Page !•) Communists were behind the Chinese civil war—not agrarian reformers. "Yes, I think there was a bipartisan foreign policy in Europe." Hall said. "But you couldn't convince any Fair Dealer that there was a Communist in Asia.'' Hall said the Eisenhower administration gave the country "prosperity like we never dreamed of before, but more important—u prosperity with peace." He said more Americans are employed than at any time in history and that wages are higher than ever. Butler charged that the Eisenhower administration "with its Cabinet made up solely of representatives of super big business" favors the interests of business. "Corporations' take-home pay, last year—that is—profits after j taxes, went up 26 per cent over j the year before. But the average! person's take-home pay was upj only 3 per cent." Butler said. "The stockholder feels this Republican prosperity . . . but the farmer isn't feeling it." "Members of our Cabinet don't represent any particular segment of our people," Hall said. "Thai Cabinet under President Dwight D Eisenhower represents all 160 million Americans. "Two-thirds of this farm drop he talks about happened under the Truman administration."

President of the "serene years'' that lie ahead at Gettysburg—and thereby touched off speculation whether Eisenhower privately may have confirmed the general impression here—that he won't seek reelection. But an aide who asked not to be named said that so far as he knows there has been no such word from the President—and that there was no hidden significance in Adams' mention of serene years Even before his heart attack Eisenhower had. it clear he was looking forward to retiring at Gettysburg—someday.

No two persons are exactly alike. Many are allergic to certain foods, smells and especially to certain drugs. Long ago the philospher Puhlius wisely pointed out: "There are some remedies worse than the disease." Quite a few of us have learned that the sulphur drills and penicillin cause more suffering than the disease for which given. There are recorded deaths due to a shot of penicillin. So we say fluoride is worse than a possible cavity in a tooth, especially when the cavity can be avoided by proper use of a good tooth brush. Read the following letter from Dr. A. R. Gould. San Francisco, written to the San Fmn" : !=co Health Servi-ce about a patient, dated May 5, 1053: "In January 1953 Mrs. Frieda Zwerling. 18fi5 Oak St.. San Francisco, cnme to my office with a very distressing dermitilis of the whole body, a badly cracked and swollen tongue, painfully inflamed inner cheeks and deep cracks at either corner of the mouth. The source of this very pa'nful condition was not determined at the moment. When remedies prescribed failed to relieve, she discontinued drinking the city water and in a few days the mouth conditions were healed. The natural conclusion was that perhaps discontinuing bathing in (he city water might relieve the general demalilis. This proved to be true with the e-cention of a slight irr'-tation wh'-h cn'irelv disappeared when her garments were not washed in the city water. You can imagine the nlight of this woman as she is deprived entirely of the use of city water, and small wonder that she objects to drinking the poison that she finds in insect and rat poisons. The patient also informs me that she finds a great many of our citizens in a similar plight whreh is to he deplored. Very truly yours. /s/ A. R.Gould, AI.D. If WE only had a small grant of tax money from the USPHS we could fill several pages of this paper with similar items. But we have to rely on our friends for donations to oppose fluoridatinn. , In a recent issue of Turf And Sport Digest, a warning is given to horse fanciers to be careful that horses do not drink fluoridated water. The Department of Agriculture says do not let brook sows have any fluoride, as it will cause them to lose their IHIer of pigs. Where fluoride is found in the water the premature birth rate is 20 time greater than in the New England States where there is no fluoride. Also blood clotting time even with natural organic fluoride is from fi to 20 times' longer than normal. Now the kind we are to have is inorganic and is 85 times more toxic, HO we certainly may expect greater harm than persons receive using the natural fluoridated water. The prominent surgeon, Dr. Alton Ochsner, Tulane Medical School, New Orleans, has come out emphatically against fluoridalion, according to the Times Picayune of July 28, 1955.
