Minor of Snyder, sentenced to life im- irisonment for a -Mena, ioldup slaying in 1W6, has been revoked, Arkansas Parole Director lam Camion said Moaiday. Camion said Minor had been liv- ng in Snyder since his parole in September, 1953 under the supervision of the Texas Parole Board. The Arkansas director said Minor eft his residence without permission of his parole supervisor and wasn't been heard from since. Minor was convicted in February JSW along with Elton Chitwood in he holdup slaying of a Mena, druggist, Raymond Morris. Chitwood was executed. Minor received life sentence.

The slain druggist's widow and children had protested each clemency action. with youngsten of these Is lot 'A a so hard far the parents think back to'these yean hemselves and remember how tbej- felt and acted at the same age. True, most ol us can remember something if we try but the effort a seldom made. Can you remember a party liven when you were years old which you were not invited or nt which you had a very bad ime? Do you recall the feelings of triumph or tragedy which accompanied success socially, in the classroom, or on the alhetic leld? If you can do these things you will have, made a close approach to the feeling of your children and lo I heir trials, failures and successes. Friends of the same age are every bit as important to the 8 year old as they are later on. In 'act, in many ways, they are riore important because there are "ewer of them and one lias not earned at that age that human contacts with others came and go with life. The rules and regulations of arents and are often paticularly hard to understand. At he age of 6, death and injury seem entirely unreal and as something that could not possibly happen to oneself. Hence, warnings to be careful crossing he street and similar instructions roni grownups seem merely adding to the confining and senseless rules which are always interfering with fun. In short. the youngster between 6 and 12 and in older anc years, too is a real person with normal reactions so far as his own experiences are concerned. The ones who do not have normal reactions in the eyes of the children are the grownups. The problems of youth are every bit as serious to the one involved as those of later years. Every parent and teacher should understand this and operate their relationships with the youths under their direction accordingly. An excellent pamphlet on this subject, called "Understand Your Child From Six to Twelve," has been published by the nonprofit Public Affairs Committee, 22 East East 38th Street, New York 16, New York. It costs 20 cents. STOREWIDE PRE-INVENTORY Dec. 27 Thru Dec. 30 Television Table Models, Consoles 17" 21" 24" RCA Victor Emerson Philco Gen.
