.SATURDAY, WAY 27, 1944 | • -^ -» ' -r-.Ji..) ^ M'l/.ll , me C. SpenceFdf Jonesboro /s Candidate For Prosecutor BLYTHEVILLE (ARK,); .COUKIKK NEWS Ivlc C. SpCUCCr of JOUCSbOI'O, Craijjhead County, Ai'k., today formally announced his candidacy for tlie Dcjiiur I'll lie nomination to the office or Prosecuting Attorney in the Second Judicial District of Arkansas. Mr. Spencer was born ami spent *y< carls' life in the Stnte uf Tcn- •>£-ssec, Imvlni! mo veil to Jonesboro. Ark., in July, 1921 f,- om Gibson County, Tcnn. Mr. Spencer is a graduate of Valparaiso University Valparaiso, Ind., anil of Cumberland University at Lebanon, Temt. HO was admitted to practice law in both Tennessee and Arkansas, being u member of the Arkansas Bar for 23 years. For eight years Mr.' Spencer was Deputy Prosecuting Attorney In Cruighead County, two years of which was (lining the term of office of Cecil Shane of lilythevillc; four years was under Die present Circuit Judge, Ksil B. Harrison, who was then Prosecuting Attorney. Mr. Spencer was also Deputy for two years nuclei 1 a. I., dladlsli of O.sce- oln. During his lemnc as Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, Mr. Spencer had wide experience' In tlie investigation and prosecution of virtually every type of crime covered by the statutes of Arkansas ami Is considered by those who know him well, as being a forceful ami vigorous advocate of law enforcement. Prior to beginning the active practice of law tit Jonesboro, Mr. Spencer taught, school, being principal of the high school ut Jacksonville, Ark., and at FaycUcvUle. Ark. He has had legislative experience, serving in the Arkansas General Assembly as Representative from Crulghead County in the session or 1941. In iicliiition to his official duties, Mr. Silencer lias maintained an office for the general praclici! of law at Joncstoro where )ie Ims hud wide experience in legal and business affairs. In Ins formal announcement, today Mr. Spencer .states that by vir- >«£• of his long experience in the dt''secuikm of crime, he has developed certain fixed and dciinite ideas to which he expects to adhere if nominated and elected to that office. First, Mr. Spencer believes that for the good of any community there is no .substitute for inquisitions by grand jury. He believes that a grand jury should be convened in each county in the district at least annually [or tlie purposes of incmiring into law enforcement generally. He believes that iiuiuiry by grand jury periodically, though perhaps not examination at every term of court, will result ill more wholesome conditions and in the public being better informed concerning law enforcement, and governmental alfairs and he stales that he will recommend to the court this policy. Second. Mr. Spencer states that he believes the Prosecuting Attorney's office should make full and complete investigation of fanls surrounding criminal charges before indictments are returned or information filed and that it will 'be Ills purpose- to follow this policy to the end Iliat those charged with crime shall be made to pay the pen- ally provided by law in a just and conscientious manner (hereby eliminating the number of cases in which sentence is .suspended but the cost of the proceeding imposed upon the several counties. Third, with respect to the present problem of Jttfmlc delinquency, Mr. Spencer i^jfbs that it is liis belief, based upon his experience as a law enforcement officer, that the problem confronting the public is more one of adult, delinquency than juvenile delinquency. He proposes to use his best efforts to remove the conditions contributing toward the delinquency of juveniles by the prosecution of adult.s creating (hose conditions and by the use of injimctirc processes, w'hcre neciwsary, to dose places frequented by young people thai are unwholesome mid destructive to morals. Mr. Spencer states that he will make 11 vigorous campaign for this office and hopes to see each and every voter prior to the Democratic primary but on account of travel conditions prevailing today, it may be impossible for him to personally contact as many of Ibc electors as Ivie C. S|ienccr he desires. In any event, he invites careful consideration of his candidacy, his- record as a public oflidal and of his professional, personal and private life. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Just Wondering; I have been trying for sometime to get .sonic information on the kind of girls made the best hostesses and what kind of girls the boys who come to the local U. S. O.'s prefer. Recently I chose Blylheville,' Arkansas as a small town and probably a good example of the average town that has received Importance because of a near-by army cam]) or base. I decided to go the entire way and joined the U. S. O. here. L was made welcome and soon was given a card to fill out and my duties as a Junior hostess began. My first night I became aware of one situation anyway. Another Bill was new. She was neatly dressed and smiling hut I have nct'd seen anyone who was so shy. I could easily see that her Inn was in the imagination. Perhaps you do not know but a person who is shy is like a candle where the wind has passed. The spark is gone if for some reason the imagination fails. On the following Monday ni ai.lbe Hostesses meeting ami later I saw her and heard her ask a man to play ping pong. When lie refused in none too gentle fashion she looked crestfallen. I wonder if it has ever occurred to you boys tint some of ttic girls need your company as much as yoil need theirs. I noticed that it was in one case the girl who flirted and rolled her eyes kept partners Another was ihe girl who said constantly, "You ar e so sweet" or "My but you are .sweet, to me". How often diet one of the 'boys look past these girls and looked for a pair of understanding eyes and n cultivated knoll-ledge of grown up understanding? I realize that a person must be jolly, fun, and a good mixer. Some people are born with these characteristics and others have to laboriously acquire them. Are all the people who writi!
