The House adopted an amendment to a pending bill to lower liquor taxes to provide ,for repeal of the liquor "fair trades" act. The fair trades act adopted in 1949 and frequently amended since then establishes a spread of one- third between the price the wholesaler pays for whisky and other "hard" liquor and that paid by the consumer. The amendment carried 50-33. It would modify a Senate bill, introduced by Sen. J. E. Garner of Fort Smith, to reduce the tax on liquor from |2.50 to J1.50 a gallon. The bill already has passed the Senate. The House amendment was introduced by Rep. Jim Slack of Clark County. SCIENTIST (Continued from Page 1) humanity." The letters said, "The seriousness of the situation created by the threat of revival of German militarism and the intention of the warmongers to prepare atomic war oblige every honest man, especially the scientist, to do everything- in his power to ward of/ the creation of a new war," The letters were signed "Prof. Bruno Pontecorvo, winner of the Stalin. Prize." This was believed to be the first mention that he has received this award, usually valued at about $25,000. Pontecorvo's statement said the conditions under which he works in Russia are "wonderful" and that "research is being conducted on the widest scale and on a very high technical level." Official Washington has labeled Pontecorvo the second deadliest .spy in history. The top ranking was givn to Klaus Fuchs, a German-born British scientist imprisoned by Britain since 1950 for himding Western atomic secrets to the Russians. The 1951 report of the U.S. Joint Congressional Atomic Energy Committee said the information given the Soviets by Fuchs and Pontecorvo advanced the Russian atomic program at least 18 months beyond where it otherwise would have been.

Egypt Accuses Israel of Attack On Army Post 38 Egyptians Claimed Killed In the Assault- By ROBERT HKWETT CAIRO 1.1V— Egypt accused Israel today of killing 38 Egyptians and wounding 21 others in a sneak" night attack on an- army headquarters two miles Inside Egypt's Gaza Strip. The Egyptian director of Palestine affairs, Lt. Col. Salah Gohar, termed the attack the biggest clash on the Israeli-Egyptian frontier since the 1949 Palestine Armistice. Five hours after the Egyptian announcement, an Israeli army spokesman in Jerusalem announced that the Egyptians had attacked an Israeli army unit and a 'battle ensued which started in Israel territory and continued into the (Egyptian-held) Gaza Strip.' The spokesman said the "enemy forces were repulsed" and the Israelis "suffered a number of casualties." Gohar said Israeli forces surrounded the army unit last night, blasted it with mortars and demolition charges, and then ambushed a truckload of 36 troops rushed to the position. 'The Israelis even threw Molotov cocktails of blazing gasoline into the wrecked truck," the Egyptian spokesman reported. "Twenty two were killed and 14 were wounded. -None escaped being either killed or wounded." Gohar said 16 Egyptians were killed and seven were wounded in the opening attack. These casualties were believed to include on civilian dead and one wounded, he added. He charged also that the attackers destroyed a well supplying one- third of the water for the ancient town of Gaza, population about 40.000. It was expected Egypt would act quickly to bring the incident before the U.N. Security Council. In Tel Aviv last night, an Israeli army spokesman accused the Egyptians of operating a spy-saboteur net in southern Israel from Trailer Truck Overturns On 61 Near Steele ! By H. L. YKAGKil STEELE—A fruit express trailer truck slipped into a highway ditcli about 3:30 a.m. yesterday four miles south of Steele on U. S. 61 near Holbert's Corner, Richard H. Peckham, owner and driver of Ruskin, Ga., said he pulled to the slippery shoulder and he was unable to regain the highway. A car approaching was in the middle of the highway and he had to pull off the road to avoid hitting it. Mr. Peckharn was not injured. The body of the trailer was badly dented from impact with the ditch banks as it landed on its side. The trailer was loaded with ripe tomatoes from Florida enroute to northern markets. The cargo, not too badly damaged Mr. Peckham thought, was loaded into another truck. The trucK was righted and returned to the highway with some difficulty because of the mud and the trucks position hi the deep and narrow side ditch. VOLCANO (Continued from Page 1) years.

Kiipoho was cut, olf from communications. The few people loft there, however, have an escape route up the coast. Main .spectacle for thousands ol .sightseers was a second flow which crossed the Kapoho road ye.sterdi*y afternoon while onlookers and civil defense workers milled around a few feet away. It moved slowly, a £uw yards an hour, and thousands of spectators flocked to the edge 01 the road to watch the nightmnri<--h iir-vorks.

Citing this charge, Gohar declared: "It is obvious the attack on the army camp near Gaza was a carefully planned aggression, and the Israelis laid a propaganda groundwork In advance by making such charges even while the attack was taking place." The rectangular Gaza Strip. 12 to 16 miles wide, extends about 60 miles northeast along the Medi terranean from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula. It was awarded to the Arabs -by the 1947 U.N. partition of Palestine and has been occupied by Egypt since 1948. tl has been the scene of hundreds of border incidents in the past year. | Bond Forfeited •• Rex Hnyne.s forfeited the usual j $19-75 bond for speeding in mumci- ! pal court today. j In another ctise heard today, j which was continued from yester- 1 day, Praiha Haynes pleaded guiliy i to a charge of assault and battery I and was fined S50 and costs.

"Live and Let Live" is a third keynote of AA philosophy, a recurring suggestion that the alcoholic, no matter how long he mav be sober, cannot afford to let himself become upset by petty irritations. AA literature is also helpful to most of us in keeping our sobriety. Soon after we came into AA most of us had an opportunity to read Alcoholics Anonymous, the society's book of experience in which members first recorded their stories and the principles which they believed had helped them to recover. Many members, sober for years, continue to refer to this and to a second book, The Twelve Steps and The Twelve Traditions, for insight and inspiration. The society also publishes an international monthly journal, "The AA Grapevine." ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS Box 873 Blytheville, Ark. Closed Meetings Tuesday Nights at 8 p. m.
