WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER, 1 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' PAOI British Angry Because Their Prime Minister Has No Feet By ALV1N STEINKOPF LONDON (AP) — "Why no feet on our Prime Minister?" That's just one Of the questions being asked in the squall of controversy which has broken over artist Graham Sutherland's birth portrait of Sir Winston Churchill, given him by'members of ttte houses of Parliament as an 80th anniversary present yesterday. Optnions are violent in the fight in which there seem to be no neu- / \A//\«J / . trals. Sutherland, a top-ranking YVOlU British artist, painted a picture of an alert old man who seems to be thinking of something and about to spring put of his chair to do something strenuous about it. No Feet But no feet.

"It's disgusting — it's ill-man- ered — it's terrible," said Lord Hailsham, a former Conservative member of the House of Commons. "It is a splendid legacy to posterity," said George Rogers, a Socialist member of Parliament and himself an artist. Churchill himself called it a great example of modern art combining force arid candor. The Old Man is known for his aversion to modern art. The Dally Express reported that at a private viewing before yesterday's public unveiling the Prime Minister quipped: "It makes me look half-witted, which I ain't." Sutherland expected the controversy, but seemed to be a little shaken by its violence. "It is Churchill as I see him, he said. "My idea of him is probably nothing like the man in the street's."

By Postal Men New Manual Makes It Easier for All The "final word" on all postal rules is set down in easy to understand, plain English in the new Postal Manual issued by the Post Office Department which becomes effective today, according to Ross S.. Stevens, Blytheville postmaster. The history-making final edition of the manual contains important changes and simplification in the use of the mails. Containing less than 300 pages, the new manual sets forth public- interest postal regulations which formerly were scattered through 4,000 pages of small type. A copy of the publication is obtainable for 65 cents from the Superintendent of Documents, Washington 25, D. C. Mail users, anxious to keep ablest of all changes in this material that may be made in the future, may get both the pamphlet in loose-leaf form and a year's subscription to all sheets making changes for a total of S2, also available from the Superintendent of Documents. "Not only are the regulations issued in simplified form, but the rules themselves have been changed," Mr. Stevens said. "A great deal of obsolete and con. flictlng material has been eliminated in the process." Not only is it printed In easy- to-read English, but it contains simple black and white illustrations on how to prepare material for mailing. Of great value to the business man who uses the mails frequently It is also an invaluable guide to the average householder by showing how to package fragile materials for mailing; how to attach a first-class letter to a package; and how to exchangeu _nwanted denominations of stamps for different values if desired. Only Four Names On Anti-Censure Petition Here The petition opposing the censure of Sen. Joseph McCarthy sent to Blytheville for signatures by the "Ten Million Americans" organization, was scheduled to be picked up today but it bears only a minimum number of signatures.

He also contended censure would amount to a "double standard" of senatorial conduct—one standard for McCarthy and a less stringent standard for the other 95 senators. The legislative branch of government, he told the Senate, has been losing ground and power steadily ti the executive, branch. One reason, he said, is that mem: bers of Congress "did not dare to stand up to the executive departments." Stood Up McCarthy had stood UP, he said. In his insistence that Oen. Zwlcker reveal the background ot the Irving Peress matter. Feress was the Army dentist promoted from captain to major and honorably discharged despite his refusal to sign a rlutine Army security form and his use of the Fifth Amendment in refusing to answer questions nsked him by McCarthy's Investigations subcommittee last January. Zwtcker was the commanding officer at Camp Kilmer, N. J.. where Peress received his discharge. Martin, who said he had "long a mired" McCarthy's "Americanism." defended McCarthy's not testifying on his financial affairs before the elections subcommittee. Martin, a retired Army major general, said the elections subcommittee had not subpoenaed McCarthy for testimony but simply had invited him. McCarthy had a "perfect right" either to accept or reject the repeated invitations, Martin said. "Minimum" . Lehman said he thought the Watkins committee had made a "min>mum" censure recommendatlin. He would have added several other counts, he said, to the two proposed by the censure committee. He said the Senate itself, not McCarthy, was really on trial. He asked the senate: "Will we discharge our sworn duty under the Constitution or will we temporize and eomprlmlse, and weigh down the words of justice with phrases of political expediency?" "Hate" Fulbright, one of three senators who leveled the original censure charges, read the Senate several letters he said he had rclvd on th McCarthy Issue. The writer of one of toese said he would "spit on you if I could but you would not be worth my saliva." Pulbrlght said "McCarthylsm" was "unadulterated hate, vituperation and abuse," and added: "The Junior senator from Wisconsin by his reckless charges has so preyed upon the fears and hatred Obituary Whatley Rites Are Scheduled For Tomorrow Services for M.

Bennett, speaking in support of his censure count, noted that McCarthy's supporters say It would be unfair to "broaden the base" of the censure resolution by adding a third count. Bennett said it would be "equally unfair" to consider amendments to the censure resolution which could soften It. WHAT I FOUND IN AA I know the menial anguish that comes from drlnklnf the way an alcoholic drinks. A» a member of AA, 1 know that there U » relief for those who sincerely desire help. I have found It. I think now that I must havt been "allergic" to aloohol from the start, for I always paid too high a price for my gaiety. As a child I developed an Inferiority complex, always feeling unwanted and not belonging. I found that wilh a. few drlnki I could mix with any crowd of people with ease. I had to give up my secretarial position at th eage of twenty- two because of a nervous breakdown. During this Illness (which I know now was caused mostly by my drinking! I began to know what fear really was. It was a deep apprehension, a fear of the unknown, one great big fear made up of lots of little ones. Fear of being alone, fear of being around people, fear of the day, fear of the night, fear of the street—anyone who has progressed even as far as I had then will know what I mean. I soon found that drink would dull fear, but Increased drink- Ing, In turn, only created new fears. Ana so began the vlclom circle. In 1937 I married my first husband who at that time wai well on the road to alcoholism also. Both of us took a solemn oath that we would never drink again, but we continued down that miserable road to chronic alcoholism for the next «lx years, finally ending In disgrace. During my last four years before finding Alcoholics Anonymous, my drinking got even worse. I used to walk the floor like a caged animal, I would not answer the doorbell. I did not want to see nice people. 1 noticed that people dia not want my company any more. The only friends I had left were my mother and sister. Many times I would cry and ask what I could do but no one had the answer to my question. I did want to itop more than anything, but I could not. Like most alcoholics, thinking perhaps that change of environment would solve my problems I went to the state of New York to work—only to find the same situation for eight more months. Upon my return to my home town I went to work for an attorney who was a wonderful person; he knew my problem and tried In every way possible to be of help to me. For about three months I stayed sobv with his help. Then another binge. One Saturday night while In a drunken stupor I met my present husband who is also an alcoholic. We were married two months later, each of us searching for some way out of the miserable hue we were In. Several months later I contacted Alcoholics Anonymous. I will always be grateful to the man and his wile who came to see me, for they gave me a new ray of hope. The group in our community wai small then. When I got there I was the only woman. As the speakers got up and gave their personal stories, I did not feel out of place any longer. The fight wasn't over by any means, but It seemed the black fog was lifting. The friendship you find in AA means a lot to me. It's nothing you just talk about, It's a thing you feel. Trust and have faith In God; I never go to bed without sending a prayer and thanks to AA which saved me from the disastrous misery I was In. In AA you can walk with your head high, nothing to hide, no more lying and excuses. There is a feeling, too, of being needed and wanted In AA. All of us have had that lonely lost feeling and AA has given my life aim and purpose. I know where I'm going today. ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS Box 873 Blytheville, Ark.
