Stale Supreme Court will hoar * three suits involving Gov. Herman *Tftimadge and Lt Qov. M. E , Thompson «- (Bowers' announcement came as ' an outgrowth of an article published in •yesterday's ntlanta Journal alleging Irregularities in Tcl- ; fair County, where write-in votes for Herman Talmadgc formed the .basis for his subsequent election -as governor by the .legislature In January. The nerwspnper, however, 'did not say that the write-In . votes were illegally cast. . : Informed that Roy V. Harris, • Talmadge's chief .lieutenant, hait 'said that he (Bowers) would with, draw from " the legislative race ns . soon as :the. write-ins were counted, • Bowers i shaped ."that's a lie." ;; Bowers 'said "since 'lliey. tried, to , cheat' like they did, I am reacy .to push this thing to the bitter '.end." | Gov.

Myer Goldberg of Coweta 4: County asserted that the newspa- ;.' per charges that mean that "the .' claim of Herman. Talmadge to • the governorship was conceived in : conscienceless fraud." ; "One might sny now that the ,i governorship has been stolen anC| • Herman has received the stolen .?"• property," Golcfacrg said. "It is ;- inconceivable that the theft of the J- office of governor will be sanc- ;' tiohed by the legal system which r sends to prison a poor devil who ;•• steals a watch or who, thousii i not stealing^ it, receives it knowing -V it to be stolen." • The additional votes from Tel'-' fair, gave Talmadge a write-in to- j tal of 615 Mavmichael 669 and ! Bo» r ers 637. : On 'the night the legislature ~i elyted- Herman to the office won { by -his late father who died bei fore inauguration, the legislature • canvassed the write-in ballots. The i first count put James V. Carml; chael In the lead, with Bowers sect on'd and iHernian thiid.

But the principal figure In tlie, tremendous celebration—the host— sat. silently in a second row seat, baliind (he paslor, flanked by deacons, while others talked to the- overflow crowd during the dedicatory services. The once loquacious host, builder of the church and until yesterday holder ol the deed to the five- bathroom, ei5ht-0edroont parsonage, could not rise to Uie occasion. H. K.

Wade D Smith, to overlap politics and religion in his remarks. 'Mississippi's way of life Is on trial," he declared. And. he addetl, "some people Is hard to teach. If they don't seal liim, we'll appoint him. If lie isn't reappointed. then we'll re-elect him without opposition." Still another speaker pleaded: "Give him unusual strength. O. God, to stem the tide of Connmm- ism and atheism coming this way." And while the throng tackled the barbecue pork, sopping gravy, rolls and potato salad there were frequent murmurs of "we're wun him and we aie praying for him" between mouthfuls. It didn't seem to matter to the crowd that came by battered tarm jalopies, wagons and shiny new cars thai tlie assembly had been snubbed by Congress, none ot whose members accepted the host's invitation to attend.

It brought something into this world that had not been there before. For the first time people could talk to each other while they were far apart. A new horizon was created-, free from the old boundaries of voice unaided. A new industry began, destined to employ hundreds of thousands of men and women and to be of use to everyone. The ALEXANDER GRAHAM fa Moffett, J Bell System began to grow into a service sealed to the rising needs of the nation. The Southwestern Bell Tek-phon'o Company today links telephone users in the states of Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and part of Illinois with the entire nation, with more than GO foreign nations, voice lo voice. Alexander Graham Bell, who made it all possible, was born 100 years ago March 3. We honor his centennial and the new frontiers his mind and work opened. * S O U T H W E S T E R N -B E L L TELEPHONE COMPANY ; '--;;.*- <••;-=.,. ^ r. -^'.; 4 ,., --('•• f. :.-. .-i : : .„;..
