WEDNESDAY, APRIL IS, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Londoners Dour Over Daily Worker, Only Newspaper Available By HAL COOPER LONDON (AP) — A bartender friend of ours named Percy emerged from deep inside the Communist, Daily Worker today and pronounced judgment; "It'll never replace the old- lashipned newspaper," He may be on solid ground. But at the moment the Red party organ — all four pages and 80,000 copies of it — is striving to do so. Because of London's newspaper strike, now in its 20th day and no end in sight, the Worker is the only daily publishing here. It's read avidly by people who normally wouldn't fondle it with set of tongs. It fetches premium prices on the black market. What an opportunity for converts! Recognizing this, the Worker said in a front-page editorial: "No new reader who comes again must find he cannot get the Daily Worker. All newly won ground must be consolidated." This led us to interview Percy, who might be described loosely as newly won ground, to see whether he is so far in a condition of consolidation. Well, we've got news for the Worker and it's not good. "I want to be fair about this," said Percy. "But to tell you -the truth, I think I'd rather have my Daily Mirror." We asked him what faults he had to find with the Worker. "Look at this front page," he said. 'Bulgarians Conquer London,' it said. "Pair gave me a start, that did. And you know what it's about? It's about some dancing troupe from Sofia. What kind of a lark is that?" He read off some other headlines: "Catastrophe in Cotton — Human • Realities of Slump in Our Oldest Industry" — "Shopworkers want 15 shilling rise" — "Teachers Bitter Over Pay — "Don't Make H-Bomb, Calls Union" — " 'Bolder' U.S. War Plan for Europe." "Couple of weeks of that and I'll be so deep in the dumps they'll have to sink a shaft for me," Percy commented. "Don't they know any happy people? And where's their comic strips?" Any further remarks? "Well, yes," said Percy. "I found out one thing here I never knew before. In their nature column. Listen to this: 'Newts lay their eggs singly, wrapping each in a leaf of water weed.' A man likes to know things like that. Interesting and useful. Help me in my work, that will' "You got any idea when the newspapers will be back?" Ohio Court Rules Against Private Trials CLEVELAND (tfl—No Ohio judge can order all spectators and reporters from a courtroom during a trial — even at the written request of the defendants, an Appellate Court ruled here yesterday. "A defendant has no right, constitutionally or otherwise, to a private trial — that is, one hidden from the public view," the court said. The decision came in a case brought by Cleveland's three daily newspapers — the Plain Dealer, News and Press. They objected to a ruling by Common Pleas Judge Parker Fulton barring spectators from a pandering trial while a witness talked about "lurid details." Judge Pulton ;icted after the three defendants signed written waivers of their right to public trial. PAGE SEVEN NOT IN SCRIPT—Having been dunked in the Colorado River while making a scene for their forthcoming "Smoke Signal," Piper Laurie doesn't look too happy as a wardrobe woman attempts to wring out her skirt. Damp gent emptying water out of his boot is Rex Reason.
