Big Step Forward East Arkansas, aet'mgr-lliroimli morc than 125 leaders representing 22 cities and towns, last week liumched a i'nr- reaching movement which can KO for, if pursued with diligence, toward breaking the bonds which long.'have held the area literally in the grip of Economic shivery. ' The aica long has been an agricultural empire, one which Ihnved as far back as sliwe days, and one which found greater prospeiity in newer freedoms and today it is attracting interest from the North and East hy manufacturers who are looking for more Ideal conditions in wliich to operate their industrial plants which, when lin^- M with agriculture, have helped to make America great. Bringing of an adequate gas supply to Eastern Arkansas will make this acga one of "the most attractive oC any part of the United States to manufacturers, and of equally great importance it will make Mississippi County, and the other counties in the area, a better place in which to live. • \An atlefjtTate gas supply should mean cheaper fuel costs, not only for Ihe industries wbicli will locate here, hut for the; thousands of families who have homes to heat. ' - • ' ' Leaders agree that it will be a mammoth task to bring natural gas into the area. Lines which now pass through Arkansas can he used to advantage hy, the owners* by delivering that gas to the northernmost and eastqi-fimost points' of their pipelines. .Unless that policy of by-passing > this aifca can be changed, it will he necessary to connect this area with pipelines from the gas producing fields to the Southwest in Arkansas, Louisiana or Texas. By acting as a group the 22 cities, including Blytheville, Osceola and Manila in Mississippi County which were represented at the Forrest City meeting, can .have a far better chance for victory in this phase of'economic warfare than any one of them ever could have by acting alone. der guards who are letting local rcsi- dents bring in t'<xxl from Simin, thus cutting into the .smugglers' business. So 'the, smugglers aren't smuggling anything across the Imrder, wliich isi cutting into Hemlaye's food supplies. In this country, some 10,000 New York suburbanite commuters have struck against a buft company which raised its fares 3f? per cent. They may hot gel (o work, but they've refused lo ride till the price comes down. Latest returns from a world of ever-widening and more'inclusive strikes: one foV the vested smuggling interests, and one for the commuting common man.

UOIiriLAS I.ARSEN NKA Still f C'orrKilMliilent WASHINGTON, Allg. ». INKA' —Wllli the dust temporarily settled on the Howard Hughes investigation uml life in tlie Capitol back to a sort of scorched sub-normal there remains only one group of Individuals left with any men- tlonnblc volume of dander still up over the whole tiling. They're the 'members of llic American Public 'Relations Association. They are the public relations counsels—emphasis on the word "counsels" because that's how they show that they arc different from publicity agents—of tlie nation's largest firms and trade' or- ganisations. They feel their activity Is a legitimate function the modern business world. That's why they're irked over what the public must think or the publicity business as a whole' as a result of some of the exposures o[ the Hughes' probe. Once a week the APRA members have lunch to hash over the current pliability or Hie putl'i: mind, listen lo a guest speaker ;m draw for a door print 1 . /U the Jast meclinir -the subject of the activities of Johnny Meyer, Hughes publicity man. came- iu foi a lot of hot, but strictly informal discussion. Naturally tlie Al'HA u-onld- n't officially comment on Meyer's business cllitr.s. And tlie individual Hughes, nut they did talk. RELATIONS ANI> I'lll'.i.IC RELATIONS Tlie gist ot tlieir criticism n; Meyer's particular brand of public relations was that It was "irre- .sixmsiblc" and placed too much emphnsis on liquor and women. They seemed to think that a higb- lype of public relations puts more emphasis on education of tlie whole public, rather than on ex|>osing certain key members ot tlie public to free liquor and the intellectual conversation of Rirls. When you pinned them down, however, they found it hard to centrating on educating Elliott. NOKTII OF HJK G'KKAM As an example of the liifjlicsl type of public relations practiced in America, however, the members recommended re(X)rting the \vords of the guest speaker, Robert H. draw a line line on the v value ; of liquor in public relations work. Every member talked to at the luncheon admitted t,hat practically every expense account they turnel in included buying spmebody drinks in the line of business. And' they admitted that it was possible to fix arbitrarily the number of drinks you inicht have to buy at any one time. On lop of that, most of the APRA niemtjers questioned admitted that at on* time or another they, loo. had used female charm, in various innocent ways, o[ course, lo decornte an evening or to tone up iin informal business meeting. So when you finally not down to it. Meyer's chief sin as fur as the APftA members go was his "Bob" North, ^presenting the In ternational Association of Ice Cream Manufacturers. And from what North had to say It appears it's much tougher to sell ice cream cones than airplanes. l-lrst, the goal of the industry pretty is to be producing one billion gallons of ice cream by 1055. which is the equivalent of 60 billion ice cream cones. To do this, the Ill- members wouldn't let thcinselve-s! failure to educate the public :is a the merits of his bosses'. 1 the expense of con- be quoted, because thev represent! whole on Hi firms which might do business with' airplane at DOCTOR SAYS BV WILMAM A. O'BRlFN, M. I>. Written for NKA Service Many returning servicemen brought back timebic Infection of lie bowel and, ns tlie disease was >revalent throughout the country •vcn before the war. It is now esti- nated that nearly 10 per cent of he population is affected. So-called ''healthy" carriers are he most Important factors In spreading amebic infection. Tlie widespread belief that ameba may live In the Ijowol without causing ulcers or that a harmless strain exists is without foundation. One- third of all patients who develop amebic abscesses of the liver have lever had bowel complaints. The chief defense against ame- uic infection is good sanitation. Modern purification of water- supplies nnd cflldenl sewage disposal protect against infections which originate In. the bowel. At the last World's Pair in Chicago, the infection was spread. by the failure of the water and sewage systems lithe hotels, and not the carelessness of food handlers. Those who liunclte and prepare our food cai prevent the spread of amebic infection by practicing proper sanl lation. Tlie other means of controlling the disease is to heat all patient: who have active infection—-including carriers — since they really have the disease- in mild form When any variety of the disease is discovered, drugs which destro. the ameba should be given at once Kinctlno hydrochloride, given by hy podermic injection, destroys th ameba in tlie tissues while chinio Ton, diodociuin, vioform or carbar sonc kill the ameba on the bowe surface. Penicillin may prove life saving in those amebic infcctlor in which other germs weaken Ih resistance of the patient and Intei fere wilh his recovery through ant amebic treatment. SI'KKAI) BY FLIES While amebic infection Is mor common in warm countries, it was. originally discovered in Russia. The' disease is spread from man to man by contaminated water or food and by Hies, which carry the ameba on their legs. The ameba are destroyed by boiling the water or cooking the, food. Most serious complicaton of amebic.. infection is liver abscess. When the liver becomes tender and swollen, ameba can be found in pus removed through a needle. Beginning abscesses may be healed by drugs alone while in more advanced stages aspiration through a needle or surgical operations are also necessary. dustry has to pressure the fanners to produce more milk nnd make less cream of their own. Because the ice cream business is now using more than 100.000,000 pounds of nuts and fruits, the industry also has to pressure the fruit nnd nut growers to Increase their crop; Those are the primary problems. Next, they're working* on getting housewives in the habit of taking homo five-gallon cans of ice crean- instead of buying it in quarts and pints, which the new refrigerators permit. To do this, and QUESTION: How many human diseases have been listed?

HFRROI l> United Press Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Aug. (UP) — Widespread labor dlffieullles and resh union defiance face govern- .ent labor officials today with lie last and strictest provisions f the Taft-Hartley Law put Into ffect. The new statute, which drasti- ally modifies the government la- jor policy and for the first time strict, responsibilities on mions, became fully effective mid- light Thursday. It was passed -jy Congress over President TrunuiVs eto on June-23. As the law went ;mo operation 35,000 workers were on strike hi 80 disputes. Some 250,000 olhrrs ••ere involved in crucial contract legislations, and a complete tie- up of West Coast shipping war, hreatened. - Jinisdictlonnl disputes xlsted in Hollywood movie stu- lios and at New York City's hUo- Airport, which could bo resolv- 'd by recourse to the new lav; The united Auto Workers (C1OI jeat the midnight deadline by a . 40 seconds, reaching "ccm- ilete agreement," on a pension Jlan and other differences with the Ford Motor Co. If they Had failed lo agree before Ihe Tafc-Harlley aw went, into effect, the UAW vould have had to win u majority vote in a. countrywle I»ll of Ford workers to retain the union shop wovislon it enjoyed in all previous Ford contracts. Labor observers doubted the UAW could obtain an election in lhat event, since CIO officers so far have refused to sign non-Comu-u- nist affidavits or file union financial statements. Both are required under the new acl before the National Labor Relntioin Bmrd can authorize an election. The Taft-Hartley Law also outlaws the closed shop, prohibits ju- risdietional strikes and secontlaiy boycotts, forbids excessive union initiation fees, denies bargaining rights to foremen, and gives employers greater freedom to campaign against unionization. As the law went Into effect,.there were these other developments on the labor front: Tlie International Typographical Union (AFL) voted unanimously in its annual convention not to make any written contracts for the duration of the Act. The Pood, Tobacco and Agricultural Workers ICIOI threatened lo sue in the Federal Courts to restrain Robert N. Denha'n, general counsel of the Notional Labor Relations Board, from dismissing its cases for failure of officers to file non-Communist, affidavits. Tlie United Auto Workers (CIO) polled the most votes at the Glenn L. Martin Aircraft Co. plant in Baltimore in the last major collective bargaining election to be held under the Wagner Act. But the UAW failed to get a clear-cut majority and a run-off election may be necessary. However, unless UAW and the rival International Association of Machinists (Ind.) file non-Communist affidavits, the case probably will be dismissed liy the NLRB. NLRB, which becomes a "labor court", was snagged in its task of >ifting out . cases which . could be 'recessed under Taft-Hartley al- hough they were started under the Wagner Act. The board announced that none of the 410 pending election cases vould be processed unless the unions involved filed financial information and non-Communist affidavits. Meanwhile, Rep. Fred A. Hartley. R., N. ^., co-author of the law, reiterated his warning to management against signing contracts which viol.ate the spirit or the Act. He said in a Chicago speech that he plans to call management and labor representatives to Washington to explain contracts which may disregard the spirit of the law by including so-called no-penalty clauses. One of the first test cases under the new law was promised by the Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill Workers (API.) in IJttle Rock, Ark. The uriiun said that Scott Taper Box Co. had discharged workers in violation of the law for union activity. The onion said in addition it would file a civil suit in Arkansas courts to lest Ihe slale's freedom-to-work statute. One cut of six adults in United States dies of cancer.
