MONDAT, FEBRUARY «0, 1W8 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER KEWg PACttE TKRTBB Franco Proves that He Is Still Boss in Spain Br LOUIS NEV1K MADRID, Spain (AP) — Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still the boss in Spain. His fast action in crushing student demonstrations and moving to restore order in the Falange party show it. These steps are believed to have set back a trend toward the liberalization of his regime. The generalissimo's three-month- suspension of two basic rights of the Spanish Bill of Rights more than anything else underlined just how drastic and far-reaching his action is expected to be. Now any Spaniard can be sent Into forced residence anywhere In the country. Any Spaniard can be arrested and held incommunicado with no charges against him for as long as the suspension of civil rights exists. Meanwhile, Jose Luis Arrese, new Palange chieitain and a throwback to the pro-Nazi days of World War n, was reorted to have begun a sweeping purge of the only party permitted in Spain. He replaced Eaimundo Fernandez Cuesta as minister-secretary general Thursday. Betraying Ideals Arrese is reported to intend "purifying" the Falange, taking it back to the way he ran it during from 1941 to 1945. He has the support of party militants. Most of the party rank and file is opposed to democratic republicanism and to monarchy. They return of the felt Fernandez Cuesta was betraying their ideals by trying to 'ead the party toward monarchy. Even more far-reaching in its consequences, however, is the appointment of Jesus Bubio Garcia to replace Joaquin Ruiz-Giminez as minister of education. Buiz-Gimenez was known to be a liberal Roman Catholic monarchist, a professor of the University of Salamanca. Rubio Garcia is an ardent Falangist and has already started filling, ministry posts with party members. Ruiz-Gimenez was said to have started among students and faculty members of Madrid University the wave of liberalism which ended in three days of student demonstrations against the Falange Feb. 7-9. He was believed to have had Franco's approval for this. Prohibited All of the free discussion groups Ruiz-Qimenez started in student and faculty circles have now been prohibited and classes have been suspended indefinitely until the government can take measures to put an end to the liberal movement. Most foreigners here believe a slow movement : toward greater freedom of speech, more religious tolerance, more freedom of criticism In the press and more liberty Tiny Kansas Town Finally Gets its New Hospital WINCHESTER, Kan. tfl—It took many as vlounteers at the three years" and a lot of elbow grease but Winchester, a town of less than 400, is ready to dedicate its new 25-bed hospital tomorrow. The cash outlay was only $112.500. That includes $31,000 worth of equipment. The money was raised almost entirely in this pint-sized community 40 miles northwest of Kansas City juKLnfiighboring hamlels_ei!£n_tlni- er. Winchester couldn't very well aftord more. But its people could, and did, pitch in to an extent which makes their trim Jefferson County Memorial.. Hospital a remarkable do-it- yiurself project. Without the volunteer workers, Ross B. Keys said, the hospital would have cost twice as much, far beyond the community's reach. Keys, 64, has a farm with 150 cattle to feed. As chairman of the Winchester Hospital Committee, he spent many hours of tough work on the building site. "All the common labor was done by volunteers," he said. "We didn't build under a general contract. We did things one at a time — plumbing, wiring plastering — as hte money became available." Farmers hauled supplies, mixed concrete, hammered nails, poured cement. Women drove trucks, pushed wheelbarrows. A preacher dug holes. Construction began in April 1953. Subcontracts, ready mixes and similar expedients could have speeded completion. But they would have increased costs. And 101-year-old Winchester, which has been dreaming of a hospital of its own for generations, was in no particularr ush. Voiuntetr work naturally fell off around harvest time. "We ' never stopped, though," Keys said. "At times we had as of travel, both at home and abroad, which began just over five years ago, will be reversed. They also feel the trend toward restoration of the monarchy has received a severe setback. Government and party action in the next few .weeks will show just how scene." All told, Keys figures some 200 men and women donated their time and labor to the hospital. "Until today, we were 25 miles from the nearest hospital," Keys said. "This Will be a wonderful convenience for our people. And it may save a life sometime." Small Stripper Packs a Wallop SAN FRANCISCO (fl — She was only five feet tall, couldn't have weighed more than 112 — but fiery as she was, the judge reminded her that a military policeman's pants are not subject to attack. Strip-teaser Virginia Rosenberg was arretsed on charges of drunk driving in San Francisco's Presidio — a federal offense. Cpl. Albert W. Schultz, MP on duty, told U. S. Commissioner Joe Karesh that while inscribing her name in the book he "felt quite a jolt on the posterior." Fellow MPs echoed that the'stripper packed a hefty boot. For Miss Rosenberg a $300 fine and three months suspended jail term.
