Til turn these records over to any authorized court that requests Ihem," Bowles said, "but I'll not turn them over to the attorney general. "Besides, trying' to get the records of all the chartered organizations in the different states on such short notice 13 impossible." Bowles referred to subpoenas issued last Friday by State Ally. Oen. H. Albert Young calling on the National Assn. for the Advancement of White people (NAAWP) to hand over the data on their finances and operations. The NAAWP officials were scheduled to meet with young in his office In the nearby state capital of Dover today. Bowles, a 34-year-old Marine Corps veteran, faces other troubles in his fight against the U.S. Supreme Court anttsegregatlon edict.

Late Saturday, the state took another step In its growing battle against the NAAWP when Oov. J. Caleb Boggs ordered Bowles arrested on the conspiracy charges. As a result of the boycott, the Mllford School Board ordered the pupils transferred to an all-Negro llgh school In Dover 18 miles north of here, but the Negroes. in turn, boycotted these classes. The two photographers at the airport were cornered by the noisy crowd, which hurled Insults, demanded their film and called for "an explanation of your position." The ringleaders told the photographers, Warren Wlnterbottom of The Associated Press and Walter E. Dombrow of the Columbia onto a truck platform and speak over the public address system. Both men refused but the CBS man eventually Intoned the pledge of allegiance to the flag. "They called out, 'Show our side once In a while,' 'You always show the worst side,' 'You're playing the Communist game' and other things not so polite," said Dombrow. "They ripped my shirt a bit, taking off a few buttons." "HlostcrotiR" Wlnterbollom described t h c crowd as boisterous but not outright disorderly. He said he and Dombrow were surroundd for about 20 minutes hut added he was not given rough physical treatment. The AP cameraman said he was forced to give up an empty photographic plate holder. He said lie was able to get a shot of Bowles being served with the warrant before the crowd closed in on him. . Bowles was arrested yesterday by a state police detail at the Harrington Airport, eight miles west of here, while an alternately Jeer- Ing and cheering crowd stood by. They cheered when ,thc plane bringing him from Washington, D.C., landed and they Jeered when he was servcil with the warrant and he was taken to Dover for the first of two arraignments. He .posted $3.000 bond there and then was brought to Mllford tor a second arraignment and posted mother $3,000 bond. Both bonds were signed by local properly owners who used their real estate as collateral.

COURIER NEWS FTC Charges Coffee Prices Illegally Hiked WASHINGTON i*l—The Federal TnKle Commission today charged the New York Coffee and Sugar Exchange has unlawfully restrained International trade In coffee and thereby "promoted substantial increases" in prices. . The complaint named the New York Colfee and Sugar Exchange, Inc., four of Its officers and eight of Its members, and also the New York Coffee and Sugar Clearing MONDAY, OCTOBER It, 1»M The FTC said, in announcing the complaint.

In its report on this study, the PTC said last July that the sharp Increases in coffee prices during 1!)53 and early 1954 "cannot be explained In terms of the competitive laws of supply and, demand." A complaint issued by the FTC is answerable before the commission itself.

Last December there were 51,581 Arkansans getting monthly checks and they received a total of $1,737,988 that month. The bulk of the recipients are those persons over 65 receiving old age pension checks monthly. In this category In Arkansas last December were some 26,290. The remainder are survivors — children, widows, parents, etc — who receive payments upon death of an insured breadwinner. Nationally there are nearly six million persons getting monthly checks under the program at a monthly rate, last December, of $253,792,000. During 1953 these, recipients got a total of slightly more than three billion dollars.

In a hearing before the House Civil Service Committee last March Philip Young, chairman of the Civil Service Commission, said under questioning he could not say Hint a single one of the persons covered by his statistics actually had been fired because of the information he reported. He said that in at least some cases it was probable the separation resulted from information that the employe talked or drank too much or had been convicted of a misdemeanor in the past.

The earliest records of our civilization are linked to the spring and the walerhole, the river and the well. The Children of Israel faltered in the wasteland and were ready lo revolt until .Moses struck the rock and brought forth a spring. Wars have been fouifhl over water rights and once mighty nations have vanished because their water resources failed. Men have battled to the death over the last few drops til a canteen. Kormidnhle fortresses, impregnable in other respects, have fallen because of an insufficient water supply. Ships' masters have had to risk the destruction of (heir vessels and (he slaughter of their crews because water shortages forced landings on savage isles. Families have given up their homes and deserted their properties because of failing wells and dried-up water courses. London was virtually destroyed by fire in the seventeenth century and Chicago reduced to ashes in 1S71 because sufficient water could not be delivered to the right place at the right time.
