WEDNESDAY, JULY I, 19M BtYTHETILLS CAM.)' COURIER ?AGB BLliVEN British People Stand Ready To Lose a Powerful Leader WASHINGTON (AP) long it was hard to accept the his clock was running down. Information from Britain about his condition has been vague. Fatigue, it was said. So he may improve and return to his duties. Or he may not. And if he does not 'W-he English-speaking people have TOSt a rallying-point and a shield. He had stood equally indomitable against the darkness of fascism and the medievalism o£ communism. In his own eloquence and courage he symbolized the British character. Symbol of Humanity More than that he symbolized the indestructible and unterrorized human character which rises to its fullest development in a free society, for .which Churchill fought against the enslaving tyranny of right and left. He was a genius, born in an island which has produced more than its share of geniuses who had character and courage and eloquence. But the vitality of any nation is not unlimited. History is full of nations which lost theirs. It is possible that a great man, by sheer force of will and leadership, can pull a whole people, even a tired people, up to a height, unity and determination they could not have achieved without him.- It is also possible that a man who appeared to be providing ^supreme'leadership, like Churchill, was only reflecting the tremendous BT JAMES MARLOW - Sir Winston Churchill had been at the heart of the world so sudden news that he had to take a month's rest, which meant Ship-to-Ship Conversation TOKYO (fP) — This happened off North Korea June 23 but the Navy did not make the incident public Until today. The u. S. destroyers Gurke and Endicott and the Canadian destroyer HMS Athabaskan had wrecked two locomotives and strings of rail cars when enemy shore batteries punched what the Navy described as "a neat little hole" in the Gurke's fantall. and set off the following conversation : Athabaskan to Gur'- a '"^irry you got kicked in the backside." Gurke to Athatbas..a.,: 'Now everyone will know which way we were going when we got hit." Endicott to Athabaskan : "Don't you think that patch on the Gurke!s rear end look slike an advertisement for bandaids?" Athabaskan: "Nothing like a kick In the pants to pep one up.'" will of his people who gave him popular support because he so truly represented them. How much of Britain's achievements these past 14 years was due to Churchill and how much to the British people themselves may remain one of the unanswered questions of history. Answer May Come The answer may be found If Churchill cannot return to his old position of leadership. For that would be a test of the British people. He was such a towering figure no one of his stature is in sight to take his place. The British people must find from among themselves new and younger leadership. If they still have their great and ancient vitality undiminished it will prove itself in their ability, under new leadership, to retain their stability in a fast-changng world and even prosper ihrough the changes. In Churchill's lifetime the British fought two world wars, saw their empire fall apart and themselves descend from a truly No. 1 world power to a power second to that of the United States and Russia. Chaos Avoided Still, as a people, they remained intact, avoided chaos and confusion, and stood firm against the two powers, Germany and Russia, which they knew would have destroyed the freedom they had spent centuries obtaining. The post-Churchill leadership, to popular support. But what direction be successful at all, must have will it take: Lett or tight? Churchill is leader of the Conservative party, which had been beaten by the Labor party after the war and ever since Churchill's Conservatives beat them the last time, the Laborites have considered themselves out of power only temporarily. The Labor party itself is split Into factions, one wanting Britain linked to the U. S., the other less friendly in this direction. If Churchill should not return to his place at the head of the government, his Conservatives will run the country. Perhaps the first test of where the people want to go will be at the next British elc- tions. Seek to Bar Reds from Guild HOLLYWOOD (« — A proposed by-law would ban Communists from membership in the Screen Actors Guild.

McCarthy (R-Wis) says Dr. Nathan Pusey, new president of Harvard University, "has neither learned nor forgotten anything since he was a freshman in college." "I do not think Pusey is or has been a member of the Communist party," McCarthy said in a letter to Ncal O'Hara, Boston Traveller columnist, made public yesterday. But he said the new university head was among those whose "Hatred and contempt appear to be infinitely greater for those who effectively expose and Injure the Communist cause" than for Communists themselves. McCarthy conceded that he. might "not be entirely unbiased" about the educator, who formerly headed Lawrence College in the senator's home town of Apple ton, Wis., because Pusey fought his re-election to the Senate. At Applcton, Pusey commented: "When McCarthy's remarks about me are translated it means only—I didn't vote for him."

By The Associated Press The price of soft drinks was on the Increase in Arkansas today as many bottlers of soda pop boosted their prices to meet rising operating costs. Many of the manufacturers raised the wholesale price on a case of 24 bottles from 80 to 96 cents — or from 3 and third to 4 cents a bottle. Retailers hit by the boost were expected to pass it along to their customers by adding a penny to each bottle. Bottlers in some major cities- Little Rock, Blytheviile, Texarkana, Hot Springs and Pine Bluff- were refusing to increase their prices on the traditional nickel drink. On the other hand, bottlers in Hot Springs and Texarkana who serve a 7-county area in extreme Southwest Arkansas were reported boosting the price there while holding the line at home. The price Increase came to light yesterday when a Hot Springs bottler. Bill Bundy, said the boosts would take effect today in Howard, Sevier, Hempstead. Polk, Montgomery, LaPayette and Pike Counties. Price Went Up But an Associated Press survey indicated that the increases actually first started taking hold last Aug. 25, when the wholesale price of all drinks except Coca-Cola and Dr. Pepper went up to 96 cents in Columbia, Ouachita. Calhoun, Bradley, Dallas and Union Counties. The increase hit Ft. Smith today, along with the 7-county area in i Southwest Arkansas. I Bottlers were quick to defend the higher prices. "It's a natural thing for a bottler to raise his price to six cents," said one manufacturer. "I don't see why anyone should get excited about it. Everything else has gone up." A Little Rock bottler who de- clined to be quoted by name — and who hasn't raised his price — said GO per cent of the bottlers throughout the nation are selling their product at more than 80 cents a case. "They haven't lost any business by doing it, either," he added. The bottler said the Industry's costs have increased us much as 150 per cent on some items, and not less than 50 per cent on all costs. None in Blytheviile • Still .some bottlers held the line at 80 cents, and those in Blythcville added that they didn't contemplate any immediate price boosts. The sales manager of the Coca- Cola company in Little Rock, which serves 25 counties, declined to comment on the price increases. One distributor for "Coke." Forrest Wilson of Nashville, said, however, that he was increasing his price, and added: "It's got to the point where the price had to go up or the bottlers couldn't make any money. We tried to hold out as long as we could." Bundy predicted that the price increase soon would "cover the .state." lie said the boosts were the first for the industry in its Arkansas history WARNING ORDER In the Chancery Court, Chickasawba iDstriet, Mississippi County, Arkansas. > Jewel Mansell, Ptf. vs. No. 12420 Jack H.
