Are Professional Criminals Being Loosed Here? We simply can't go along with the Stat« Parole Board in its recommendation for commutations of sentences of Jack Barg, Martin Lane and Harry •Smith, the Chicago city slickers who wert cleverly trapped by our drawling, •oft talking sheriff, William Berrymnn. Barg and Smith are free on paroles »nd » this was being written, Lane wus attempting to get free through the U. S. Immigration Service, who must keep an eye on him by request of Canadian authorities. These three men were convicted of ' taking $2,500 from Etownli, were duped by Sheriff Berrymnn and finally captured by him for trial in Osceola. With Circuit Judge Zal Ti. Harrison presiding, the jury found nil three guilty of the safe-cracking job and eiich drew a 22-year sentence. But more important was Hie background of these men, especially Harry Smith and Jack Barg, and the oulinpres attempted in approaching jury members during the trial. There also were accusations of Intimidating a slate's witness. Before the trial, they attempted to buy Sheriff Berryman's "friendship." Lane and Smith jumped bail, while their case was being appealed to the Supreme Court and had to be extradited i'rom Canada by then Attorney General Ike Murry. Smith and Barg have lung records of arrests, if information furnished by the Federal Bureau of investigation is correct. Barg's police record dates from 19c!0, and he's not un old man now. Prosecutor Charley 1'artlow, Judge Harrison and Sheriff Berryman, all were of the opinion thut the sentences should not be commuted. To say they were actively opposed to the commutations would be an understatement. We concur with their judgment in this matter, especially in view of the records held bj two of these men. Byrum Hurst, a state senator and Hot Springs lawyer, has the custody of Smith, whom he describes as a boy who made one mistake. He told the parole board that Jim Grain, our county's political boss man, had given a green light to the petition for clemency for Smith. Now we don't argue with the implication that Jim Grain in fact may he running this county, but we do take exception when Prosecutor Partlovv and Sheriff Berryman are by-passed for a recommendation on convicted criminals. We think the Parole Board should have observed the custom of consulting and •cting on the advice of local officials involved. Mr, Crtin has denied Hurst's statement however. Thtf whole thing, together with Ark- ansas past history in similar situations, points up a weakness in the stale's parole system—a weakness state legislators and administrators would do well to correct. Readers Views Dear Sirs: Will you please allow spnce In your splendid pnper for a few tilings I feel deeply indebted to sny to the fine citizens ol tills section of our great country, and most especially to Blythevlllfi? On September 15 we moved Into your friendly city from a little town of Ellington. Mo., and to say we were graciously received doesn't begin to express the welcome given us. The fine Christian ladles of the W. M. A. of the Beacon Uaptlst Church were really on their toes. They had prepared a delicious, steaming hot repast, which truly filled to the brim our needs so far as food to our tired hungry bodies were concerned. The following evening, the courteous lad who delivers the Blytheville Courier News on Holly Street was around to leave us a paper. Arid as soon as it was reiuionably possible, we met the City and County officials, and many of the business men of the city Including the police. Then we received an invitation from the Ministerial Alliance, ft'itl Imve regretted ever since that we were not able to be in attendance. We have visited many of the business establishments and have made several purchases Including a new 1954 Ford from Phillips Motor. I am proud to say I am pastor of Beacon Baptist Church located In the West end of town on SOth and Ash Streets. I believe It is one of the youngest churches in town yet it Is one of the liveliest and most progressive I have ever been privileged to work with. The Interest and attendance Is growing a» tome one has s»ld like a prairie fire. We need many things as all new churches do in a busy growing, modern town. We certainly covet your prayers, your attendance, and help. Many of you have already been In attendance, among whom were the county Judge. It was our delight to have him come out to the district W. M. A. and have lunch with us. and on leaving he said, "I wish you would convey my appreciation to the Ladles, and it there is anything I can do for you, I will be at your service." There are so many things I would love to say, but for the luck of space in closing, congratulations to the editors for a Job being well done I act the active voice, because I wish for you many more years of efficient service to the citizens of thll section of our groat country.. Rev. J. J. Johnson, V. D. M. VIEWS OF OTHERS Learning About It An Interesting experiment in the delicate problem of how to explain Communism to the nation's young people without being accused of propagandizing for Soviet Russia tun been undertaken by the Ninv Mexico American Legion and the New Mexico Education Association. The experiment Is in the form of a 20-page pamphlet, entitled "The Democratic Way of Life and Soviet Communism" with a subtile ot "Contrasts and Compurl.snns-ii Positive Approach." Fifteen thousand of the pamphlets have been printed for dlNtrlbutlon to high school and college students throughout the state. Editor of the pamphlet Is Dr. F, M. Kerchin'ille, professor nt the University nl New Mexico and chairman of the Legion's Amm'ienntsm commute*. "Stopping Communism Is more than Just a military job," the pamphlet points out f an excellent approach, we'd say. The problem of educating youngsters about Communism has grown Imu'euslugly difficult in the past ftnv years. And yet, to realize why Communism te so deeply hated hi the U. S .,young people must be Riven a chance to understand it, bolh as a political movement and a conspiracy. This Legitm-NMEA pamphlet represents a good try.— Carl.sLmd iN. M.t Current-Argus. Note On A Trite Topic What luppens to otherwise scrupulously courteous persons whim they MI ijown behind the wheel of an automobile? That question probably i.s asked more frequently thitu any other, yet it is never really answered, Why is it that Mr A. will apologize profusely if he involuntarily bumps you in a crowded elevator, for example, but will hoy the road if you try to pa.s.s him in the ear? Discourtesy and rudeness are responsible for thousands of traffic accidents and fatalities In the United States every year, nci'ording to many safety experts. Tills estimate should be shocking. But is it? Hiivc not thousands and thousands of drivet& become too self-centered even to think about the possible consequences of bud motoring manners? It, may nound alarm to say It, but the possible alternatives very often are'nnd death. The choice oupht to be easy.— Tampa (Fla.) Morning Tribune. 50 THEY SAY It 'censure of Sen.

And Where Do I Go Peter tdson's Washington Column — Demo Chairman Mitchell, Win In Maine Help Party's Coffers By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NBA) — The Maine election has brightened the financial outlook of the Democratic National Committee. As of the first of October it had a deficit of $139,829.60. But since the voters of Maine elected a Democratic governor and indicated a Democratic trend generally the dough has been rolling in much faster. There's belief In the committee that It could end up the yenr In the black, especially if they win onee or both houses or Congress. The Inspiration of the Maine results brought total contributions, from the first of the year to tiic first of October, up to $773.30(1.57. Much of that came In during the last few weeks, after Maine, with pledges of more money Inter. It's close to thi; lotal of $800,853.35 taken in during all of 1953. MO ILK IMPORTANT THAN THK "Maine money" which the national committee is pelting is the Increase of funds pning to Democratic candidates around the country generally, reported by the congressional campaign urnups. In spile of tills improved financial outlook the Republican National Committee is still the wealthier outfit, as proved by its spending. Its bluest expenditure, compared to what the Demoernts can at ford, Is lor network TV and radio shows for President Eisenhower and other key officials. The Democrats aren't spending anything nationally for network TV and radio. In 1953 total contributions to the Republican National Committee were $1,338,638.15. Through Aug. 30 of this year the committee received $183,905.74. Spokesmen there are mum on what the Maine election has done to contributions, claiming that it's too early to talk about it. DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE SPOKESMEN claim that Chairman Stephen Mitchell — In spite of reports that he has alienated some top Democrats including former President Harry Truman — has been nn outstanding fund-getter and financial manager. Ever since right after the 1952 defeat he has worked tirelessly among state groups on the party's tlnnncial problems. He has suc- ! reeded In selling them on accepl- j ing n quota which they must meet < to finance the national committee. In this effort he succeeded in gelling the slules lo accept the mtlion- I al committee [is a service organi- (zation which would supply them | u-itli essential Ideas, plans and ' tools for local use. I This has been the traditional Junction of a national committee. I But the staff has come up with a the Doctor Says— Written (or NEA Service By EDWIN P, JORDAN, H. D. "Bell's palsy," writes L. H.-, "seems to IJL' more common tlmn ple tlwik. 1 am 54 anri got il nine months ago. I should like a discussion?" Tlii.s is an interesting cnir.nuMit. Perhaps the writer has happened lo .see more people who have or :i:tve had Ufill'.s palsy tlmn is UMI- the or possibly this disorder is actually becoming more Tcquent. It should be sniri first that there are III nerves whii'h come diroctly out of the bi'itin. Thtfse nerves are numbered from one to 12 and have i heir own names. It is the seventh or facial nerve \vhu:h .sup- ilies some of the skin and museles of the lace which is affected in Bell's p;\tsy. The most striking feature of Bell's palsy is a pnralysis of the nuscles of one shle of Ihe lace which produces a drooping or s;ig- ping of the lip and an inability to close one eye. As i\ result, \\\v. uvo <ddes of the face do not look alike even when at rest. The difference is more conspicuous when motions like wrinkling he forehead.snjiling or laughing nve attempted. Also, U nv.w bo rii(- 'iciilt to close the mouth and sit- ivn or food may drip out o: one corner. Bell's palsy frequently comes on suddenly and is associated with •unne iwin. The puiu may leave •ather rapidly and nothing remains nit a mild tingling. A change In sensation, to pressure or from the prick of a pin is common. The sense of taste over (ho front por- ions of the tongue LS often altered. The disorder may be the result of injury such as « cut or n s;un- 'ihot wound. It may follow ihe ex- .raction of a tooth, although why his should happen is not well understood. Infections of various sorts, especially those in the up- )er part of the nose or throat, requently precede the onset of this type of nerve paralysis. Certain diseases such as mumps, shin- gle.s, scnrlet fever or In/luenzn are additional possibilities UK are many other conditions, both rare and common. In ninny cases, however, no definite rnusn can be dis- icovered. I In those varieties, which follow i an acute infection, time is per; haps the only treatment needed. I In other cases some special opera';lion or treatment is indicated. The application of hont around the ear area may be helpful. 1 If the paralysis is slight and U there is nothing [o make it .seem , undesirable, electric treatments 1 may help. Active movements ol : the fnce in front of a mirror are usually recommended. On the whole. Bell's palsy may be considered an uncomfortable condition which often lasts for months but which usually clears up entirely. range of "do-tt-yourself" Ideas In the form of radio programs, advertising campaigns and research on national problems, which have proved exceptionally effective. THE COMMITTEE STAFF HAS helped spark the party in spite of the let-down which could be expected after the '52 defeat, and the lack of a, positive national program around which to rally. The Democratic Digest, a monthly magazine modeled after the Readers' Digest format, Is just one of the good ideas which the com mittee has come, up with. It's t sprightly roundup of Democratic news and ideas and sold by subscription. The publication is not paying Its own way yet. But it is serving as a good means for disseminating news and ideas among party workers, and to the press, radio and TV more effectively tlmn a combination of other more expensive techniques formerly used. There are many rumors that Mitchell will be supplanted by new chairman soon, because of some of the things he has said in the current campaign and because other Democratic bigwigs have found his personality a little too abrasive. But if he goes he will leave his successor an organization in surprisingly good financial shape and enjoying good morale.

The South hmid certainly isn't nn orthodox opening bid, and it would seem perfectly normal to pass the hand and still get to the very good final contract of five diamonds.

Let's return from the rarefied atmosphere of slams that go down five tricks anrl see how Rosen played his normal contract of live diamonds. West very shrewdly decided to lead a trump risking the loss of his trump trick. Fortunately for West, his partner had good supporting: trumps, 1 iind the lead cost nothing, Rosen won in his own hand with the Icinii of diamonds.

That's the word from movie producer John Champion, about to make a series of films starring flicker dolls because "there's a public appetite again for pictures about women." It's been a man's world In Hollywood for several years, with a cycle of he-man-plus films leaving movie queens whimpering about playing second fiddle to the Waynes. Ladds, Coopers, Brandos and Bogarts. There's always been an audience for pictures concerned with women, says Champion, but: "Hollywood so deglamorized actresses by showing them hanging diapers on the clothesline and whipping up cookies In the kitchen that the magic went out at the great woman star. Now glamor has won out over the girl next door." Gail Russell, reported to be in a sanitarium, Is very much among those present in Hollywood.

It's one of those shapeless hands in which you must proceed in a general direction rather than with a definite idea of why you make each play. At the second trick, Rosen led a club to the ace and then ruffed another club. Then he led a diamond to the ace and led the king of clubs, discording a heart from his hand. West didn't want to ruff with the queen of diamonds since he would then have to lead hearts up to declarer's king. When West discarded, Rosen continued with dummy's last club, discarding another heart. West discarded again, for the same reason. Rosen now ruffed a spade, and West had to overruff. Otherwise South would have had 10 tricks, with an obvious heart ruff to furnish his eleventh. Unfortunately for West, he now had to lead hearts. If he led the ace, dummy could ruff; and if he led a lav; heart, dummy could discard. Either way, the defenders could get only one further trick, and Rosen made his contract.
