SERVING WEST CARROLL AND ITS PEOPLE FOR 48 YEARS J Vol. 48 No. 40 7c PER COPY OAK GROVE, LA., THURSDAY, JUNE; 25, 1959 Entered Secend-CIua Matter at the V. 8. Festefflee mi Oak Grave, La-, under Congressional Act of March S, 1879. Pnbllshed each Thursday afternoon at Oak GroTe, La. 8 PAGES DEDICATED TO THE PEOPLE'S RIGHT TO KNOW yj'te fin f B . Hm W A a M ft - n n n With the tomato market glutted and prices depressed this week, a program to assist in every way to continue orderly marketing of the crop was outlined at a special meeting of the directors of the West Carroll Produce association Tuesday night. Directors provided for infor-. mation to be distributed to farmers showing that buyers have indicated they are willing to buy combination packs .and the "best grade two's." Cojete price information will be 'assailable here for all area markets and growers will be urged to Parish gets check for $5,000 aid to general fund West Carroll parish police jury received a $5,000 check Saturday for the general fund under provisions of a special act of the 1959 legislature. The check represented an additional $5,000 aid for the general fund, payable by the state to parishes with general fund receipts of less than $60,000. ($10,-000 in state aid had already been received for the general fund this year.) Under provisions of the act, another $15,000 in aid will be available for the next fiscal year, provided receipts are below $60,000 for the general fund. Recent salary increases approffQi ved by the state and payable by the police jury, plus increases in election expenses and other items have seriously depleted general . funds here. This prompted the police jury to seek and win approval of the Louisiana Police Jury association to rmsor an act upping the state aitVfom $10,000 to $15,000 per year. Introduced in the past legislature by Rep. W. Spencer Myrick, the bill won both house and senate approval and was signed by Acting Gov. Lether Frazar last week. Phillies ivin two to retain lead The Phillies posted two victories in Dixie baseball play this week to retain the lead and a perfect record in the second-half of league play. Thursday night, the Phils blanked the Cardinals 15-0 behind Vining's three-hit pitching. Ragland was the losing pitcher, giving up 11 hits. Cleveland hit a bases-loaded borne run, collected three hits in three at-bat and drove in seven runs to lead the Phillie attack. Vining added four rbi's to his total with two home runs. In the second game, the Pirates edged the Red Sox 5-4, with Turner earning credit for the victory. Hendrix was the losing pitcher. For the pirates, Harris and Craft each hit home runs with one aboard to lead the hitting attack. Monday night, the Phil's defeated the Pirates 14-3, with Vining pitching a one-hitter. Losing pitcher was Harris who was tagged for nine hits. Geralds' home run for the Pirates was the only hit given up by Vining. For the Phils, Vining and Canoy each hit two home runs and Bankston hit one circuit blow. Capping off the night's play, the Cardinals defeated the Red Sox 6-3. Dawkins got credit for the victory, relieving Ragland in the 6th with the score tied. Hendrix was the loser. For the Cards, Jones homered, and Hendrix was the leading Sox batter with tvjjpr two. New Prospect church slates homecoming Homecoming and special singing services will be held at New Prospect Baptist church July 5, the Rev. Harold Sellers, pastor, announced this week.

Reviewing the situation, C. O. Vining Jr., association president, told the group "Our tomato deal is sick and there's apparently nothing that can be done about it. We've got to look forward to next year and remember that there have been two or three weeks of really good prices and -that we've developed a successful marketing system." Sudden drop of tomato prices, (from a high of $5 on Saturday to a high of $2.80 on Monday), resulted from a market glut, he pointed out. "Hermitage and Monticello, (Ark.), came in a little earlier than usual, plus some other areas. This glutted the market and when the market is glutted you can hardly sell good stuff and certainly not the low two's and three's," he declared. Growers at the meeting agreed that quality of the crop in the field had deteriorated in the last few days. Not much quality is left, except probably in late patches, it was pointed out. At the meeting, W. H. Turner, a grower and director, reported Lions officers inducted; Deal recounts activities Nine Boy Scouts advance in rank; eight attend camp Nine members of Boy Scout troop No. 39, Oak Grove, were advanced in rank at a court of honor here Friday night at the First Methodist church. Advancements went to Johnnie Dennis, Bish Lee, Dennis San-ford, Kenny Grant, Ronnie Mc-Farlin, Frank McCormick and. Mitchell Butler, to first class scout; and Rodney Barron, Eddie Cannon and Ronnie McFar-lin, second class scout. - A total of 33 merit badges were awarded at the court of honor, Scoutmaster John Kester reports. Scouts and the "number of merit badges they received were Dennis Sanford, seven; Bish Lee, Rodney Barron and Johnnie Dennis, four each; Ronnie McFarlin, six; Kenny Grant and Mitchell . Butler, three each; Eddie Cannon and Frank McCormick, one each. This .jjNSijK eight members of the troOJKare attending scout camp at Camp J&Ro-IA, near West Monroe. Sfcvts at camp are Johnnie Dennis, Bish Lee, Dennis Sanford, Kenny Grant, Ronnie McFarlin, Mitchell Butler, Rodney Barron and Eddie Cannon. Local teacher goes to forestry camp Ralph Moore, Oak Grove High school vocational teacher, attended the fourth annual short course in forestry conducted at Alexander state forest near Woodworth. The short course closed on Thursday, June 18. Three full days were spent in informal classroom instruction and field practice in simple farm forestry. During the course the high school teacher lived camp style at the state forest. The program is sponsored by the Louisiana Forestry commission, Southern Pulpwood Conservation association, Olin-Mathieson Chemical corporation and the state department of education. - Forest class of 1936 holds reunion Sunday The 1936 class of Forest High school held a class reunion Sunday June 21 at the American Legion hut in Oak Grove. The hut was decorated with floral arrangements of red and white in accordance with the class colors of that year. A former teacher, Mrs. R. A. Everett, gave the class history beginning with the first grade. Since her son, Wm. F. Everett, M. D., was a member of the class she knew the class well. W. F. Almand, principal, gave an interesting talk to the alumni and their families. His talk covered not only the past years but the years that lie ahead. Clifton Doyle acted as master of ceremonies for the day. Of the 25 -who finished only one member is deceased. She was Loree Holland Sanders. The 11 attending Sunday's reunion were Merle May Meredith, Atlanta, Ga.; Omah SpiU- that he and another grower had taken a load of tomatoes to Hermitage that day. "Top price at 2 p. m. was $2.45 for the best combinations. We brought our tomatoesback and sold them here for slightly more money than we were offered there," he declared. He confirmed that the market depression was general. Decisions were made at the, meeting to seek buyers from southern produce markets and truckers in an effort to move just as much" of the remaining crop as possible, even at depressed price Approxim'y 40 per cent of the crop remains to be harvested, it was estimated. Biggest tragedy of the entire situation was the fact that while some growers were through harvesting or almost through, others had just begun to harvest. "This only emphasizes that plants must be transplanted to the field by the deadline. Any farmers who move plants to the field after deadline are gambling on the market holding. This year they lost," Mr. Vining pointed out. T. D. Waters Jr., was installed as president of the Oak Grove Lions club here Wednesday night, climaxing the club's annual ladies' night and installation banquet at the school cafeteria. Mr. Waters succeeds Charles Deal as president of the civic-ervice organization. Also installed in office by D. W. Mc-Bride, past district governor, were James Dumas, first vice-president; Harry Rountree Jr., second vice-president; Jack Fer-riss, third vice-president; secretary-treasurer, Farrice Bagwell; T. J. Nix, tailtwister; Ed Cannon Jr., and Floyd Weems, directors for two years; Gail K. Gay, director for one year. Outgoing President Deal recounted the club's activities of the past yeai. These included sponsoring of a premium for the first bale of cotton; selling Tiger booster license plates; sponsoring delegates to Boys and Girls state; assisting in enrollment of the volunteer fire department; honoring the girls basketball team and Dr. W. K. Evans upon retirement as health unit director. Mr. Waters in asnming the office, told the grtJ that he appreciated the faith and confidence shown by "electing me to what I consider the highest civic office one can hold." He pledged his full efforts to the duties of president and told the group that "only through your work and cooperation and dedication can we continue to progress and serve." Also among the new officers, but absent for the installation, are George Rundell, Lion tamer; Joe T. Kelly, two-year director, and James D. Mcintosh and L. H. Willis, one year directors.

Huey, superintendent of West Carroll parish schools; Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Almand, Shre-veport, and many other school mates who finished before or after the 1936 class." Lunch was served to 64 people. Plans were made to continue the alumni reunion yearly, but to include any classes of neighboring years that desired to become a part of the organization. However, as Merle May Meredith stated, the class of '36 reserves the right to hold its individual reunion any year it desires to do so. - - Man gets 3 years in burglary case Basil Voss, 41, charged with simple burglary, pleaded guilty this afternoon in district court and was sentenced to three years in the state penitentiary by District Judge Harry N. Anders. Voss was charged with the burglary of the home of S. V. Chestnut here in Oak Grove on June 14. He was apprehended shortly following the theft. Judge J. Vernon Sims suffers light stroke; condition improved. Judge J. Vernon Sims was hospitalized here Tuesday at Biggs and Golson clinic-hospital after suffering a light stroke while presiding in district court at Rayville earlier that morning. Condition of Judge Sims was described by attending physicians as good. "Judge Sims suffered a very mild transient stroke and has shown prompt improvement. At present, the only physical sign of his ailment is a slight slurring of speech," the physicians advise. They added that the stroke was similiar in nature to that suffered by President Dwight Eisenhower last September. (Transient means of a temporary or passing nature.) Judge Sims first became ill at his home hereabout 3 a. m. Tuesday but recovered sufficiently to go to Rayville for a regular morning session of court. He became worse while presiding and was brought home by Richland Sheriff Earl Hill just before noon Tuesday. A's, Tigers divide pair, White Sox win in minor loop play Minor league play this week saw the Athletics and Tigers split two decisions and the White Sox win while the Giants dropped a single decision. Friday the A's downed the Tigers 5-4 on H. Ainsworth's six -hit pitching. E. Guess and Yearby were the A's top hitters ' with two for three. T.

Sanders was the leading Sox hitter with two for three. In the nightcap, the Tigers defeated the Giants 14-5, tagging J. Madden for 14 hits while W. Holley, the winner, gave up only five safeties. T. Jones with three for three was the leading Tiger batter, while D. . Atkins led the Giants with two for three. t : : ' AND THAT'S l THAT T O M BRACKETT . : J Biggest news this week remained the tomato market but the good news of last week turned into bad, almost overnight. Prices of the product tumbled, (on every market), Sunday and by Tuesday had dropped to a new low. At the same time, . quality of the product here declined to the point where many producers quit harvesting operations. Buying continued this week at the produce shed and prices were comparable to other markets. However, sales were only for the better quality tomatoes; some grades which brought fair to good prices earlier in the season are now unsalable. There are some points to consider about the tomato season: Prices opened about average; climbed to a much higher level than in recent years, then dropped down to what would be low average for another year. There were two or three weeks of good marketing and excellent prices for tomatoes here, as was predicted, provided planting deadlines were met and weather didn't interfere. The market " system proved to be excellent. What (Please turn to page 8) 1 At Biggs and Golson clinic-hospital SHIRLEY ANN, seven pound, 15 ounce daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. P.

However, association officials said every effort would be made to continue buying operations as long as possible. Little hope was held out for an improvement in price. (See story page one concerning developments in the market situation here.) 3 district residents plan to campaign for state senator Three district residents have publicly announced that they will be candidates for the office of state senator representing the 29th senatorial district West Carroll and Morehouse parishes.

Involved in the accident, Marshal T. J. Nix reports, were a 1958 Volkswagen driven by George Philley, route 1, Oak Grove, and a 1959 Ford, driven and owned by the Rev. D. L. O'Neal, of Ruston. The accident happened about 6:30 p. m. Marshal Nix said damages to the Volkswagen totaled over $800 and that the Ford was extensively damaged in the front. The Volkswagen was owned by French B. Jones, route 1, Oak Grove. Three other- ministers were riding in the O'Neal vehicle but were apparently uninjured. U. S. molds differences into harmony speaker America is not a melting pot, but she is a mould and this nation can keep her differences and make them work in harmony, Louie Throgmorton, Dallas Texas, insurance executive and humorist told the Oak Grove Lions club and members' guests here Wednesday night at the school cafeteria. Guest speaker for the club's annual installation program, Mr. Throgmorton liberally interspersed humor in his talk, but stressed the religious heritage of this nation. "This land is a mosiac of differences," he declared, pointing out that diverse elements have been molded into a harmonious unit. "In my rounds," he pointed out, "I get the chance to see America at its best . . . When you talk to our youth and look into their faces, you know America is going to be all right." This nation constitutes the only "meritocracy" in the world, i or r H UaU severe tomatoes Nine cases heard in district court; seven fines levied Nine cases were acted on here today with Judge Harry N. Anders, of Winnsboro, presiding, in district court. Thurman King, charged with drunk driving, was fined $250 and costs of court or in default of payment of fine to serve four months in jaiL Gipson Bridges, charged with drunk driving, withdrew a former plea of . not guilty and pleaded guJty.

Three horses killed in highway accident; 4 youngsters unhurt Three horses were killed but four youngsters apparently escaped injury in a collision . between a car and the horses on the Forest-Green road Thursday, (June 18), about 10:30 p. m. The accident happened about one-half mile south of Kennedy grocery, investigating officers reported. A 1958 Chevrolet, owned by James Denmon and driven by his son Terry Denmon, plowed into a group of seven horses, owned by Claude Butler. Two quarter-horse 'colts and a Shetland pony were killed in the mishap and the Denmon automobile was extensively damaged. Young Denmon and three other unidentified youngsters riding in the automobile escaped any apparent serious injuries. The horses had escaped from a pasture on the Butler farm, which is located just south of the store at Green. Investigating officers said no charges were filed as a result of the accident. No charges listed on municipal docket Oak Grove's municipal court docket remained blank for this week as no violations of law were entered on the - charge record. It was the first time in 17 weeks that the charge docket remained blank for an entire week. The first week in March went by without a charge being filed. he declared. No one tells citizens what to make of themselves; everyone, he said, can rise to whatever height he sets. Mr. " Throgmorton said pleas for "bold thinking" and the cries of "America is at the crossroads" are futile. "We've always had the best and some of the boldest thinking in history. "And, we're at the crossroads every day. We've always had crises; We've always been on trial before the world. We've always made the right decision and we've always survived the crises and the trials," he observed. - The speaker cited his daily reminders of America's greatness and its religious heritage. These included "sunrise every morning . . . the rainbow . . . the energy in a single piece of . bread." All jthese, Mr. Throgmorton said, remind him of the countless ways in which God's courtesies to man are shown in every day. vs u u y u Br Woodie Clifton Smith, 36, was arrested Saturday afternoon on charges of aggravated rape of his eight - year - old daughter. Sheriff J. R. Butler advised The Gazette. The charges were preferred by Smith's wife. The wife reported the incident to the sheriffs authorities here Saturday afternoon after she allegedly surprised her husband in the act of sexual intercourse with the little girl in an abandoned house on the couple's farm about a half-mile north of Easom's store in the Lakeside area, a sheriffs office spokesman said. A doctor's examination at the local hospital Saturday afternoon confirmed that the child had been sexually molested, the spokesman said. Smith was arrested about 5 p. m. Saturday by Deputies H. L. Kennedy and B..G. Crook as he slept in the abandoned house. James D. Mcintosh, assistant district attorney, advised The Gazette today that Smith would be held for the September grand jury and that no bond was allowed on the charge, which can carry a capital sentence in event of conviction. The wife found her husband and daughter in the abandoned house about 3 p. m., sheriffs authorities reported. Authorities said he has made no admission of the crime and has steadfastly maintained that he cannot remember what happened Saturday afternoon, claiming a mental blank.
