And successful football seasons have become the rule rather than the exception during the past 20 years in Blylheville. Since the clays of Carney Laslie, with a few lapses, Blytheville football has been steadily growing and has become an institution in which our citi/enry can take justifiable pride. Good football has become as much a part of our fall as busy cotton giua and a crowded Saturday night on Main Street. The men who coach and Ihe boys who play have given .sports fans many evenings of nothing but the finest kind of entertainment. And it is in the tradition of Blylhc- Ville /football that Coaches lUisscll'Mos- ley and Bill Slnncircome. Both of these hard-working young men believe and teach that "you gel out of the game just what you put into it." They demand and get conscientious effort on the fit-Id and in Ihe classroom.

W, 1952 days was n complete junking of everything in the act except the elements of the old, pro-labor Wagner act which Tart-Hartley incorporates. ' As proof of this, they flatly rejected in HMO a string of 28 amendments, sponsored by Senator Tal't himself, to improve the law. They wanted repeal or nothing. Should they now, by some chance, get what Stevenson proposes for them, it would not be much different from what Taft offered in 19^10. The only distinction would be getting rid of Ihe hated "Tafl-Hiii'ilcy" label. No one can prevent them from being satisfied with this if they wish to be. But labor leaders ought not to be allowed lo pose before (heir membership as having achieved real repeal if they should manage what Stevenson suggests. They .should be compelled to be honest about the issue. At no stage of the Tall-Hartley liis- lory have they been lhat. They complain thai. Ihe law is unfair and antiunion, l.iut most of them rate as. anti- Union any law which restricts the free reign of labor leaders in any way. Tal'l-Hariley certainly is not nearly a perfect law and some of those who pushed it may well have been motivated by vindictive feelings toward labor. Hut it was an attempt by many sincere men to produce a needed balance in labor- management relations. To this effort, labor leaders contributed nothing but the bland assurances that they did not need to be regulated. In the face of the evident abuses of labor power>in the- early and mid-19'lO's, this was an irresponsible position. When union chiefs had an honest chance in 19--19 to better the law, they passed that by, too. They preferred to battle for no regulation at all. Short of an unlooked-for change in Ihe complexion of the 1953 Congress, labor is unlikely to get repeal. As a matter of fact, there is not much prospect they will even get the repeal in name only which Stevenson recommends. For the American people and their lawmakers are convinced that unions, like every other vital segment of society, should he within the law — not above it. Views of Others If Labor Chiefs Get 'Repeal' Of T-H, They Fool Nobody Inevitably, the Tatt-llailU'.v lalim \KW is a live subject in this presidential campaign. Ccneral Kisenhowor, the Republican nominee, says he favors amendments to the act where evidence indicates they arc iH'tc-sary to improve it. (io\fnior Stevenson, bis Democratic opponent. orlgitciHy spt»ke, too. of "modifying" the law. He said il contains a niimlier of features good for management - labor relations. More recently, however, Stevenson called for repeal of Taft-Hartley. It should be thoroughly clear, however, that the Democratic candidate is for repeal of the name, "Taft-Harttoy," rather than for scuttling the whole law itself. In other words, he is tin-owing a sop to the labor leaders to whom repeal has been a political rallying cry since tin- act was adopted in 1917. If this kind of repeal really satisfies union leaders, they have changed.

Erskine Joknson IN HOLLYWOOD By TYRONE POH'KR s.JFirKvvh einohsoionsnolc .Bn For Krokinc Johnson, who fe wi vacation HOLLYWOOD —(NEA) —A veteran character actor who has been part of Hollywood far longer than T, having started his movie career in 1912, stopped by my dressing room while I was making "Mississippi Gambler" for Universal-International. We talked briefly about my coming roati tour in Stephen Vincent Benet's "John Brown's Body" and at last, shaking his head, he mutlered: "I don't understand It. What's happening In Hollywood? Actors were once content to live here the year 'round and make pictures. Now they don't want contracts any more. They go to Europe and make pictures. They go to Broadway and stay for years." I would like to answer his question here and now. Mine is not a rebellion against the movie Industry, but a reaching toward a fuller and richer career in the personal sense of experiment and trial as an tidtor. It started when I appeared in "Mr, Roberts" on the London stage in 1950 for six months. Then one day Charles Laughton niroduced me to Paul Gregory, whose production of "Don Juan in Hell" hod impressed me a few nonths before as few theater experiences have. Within a week we were discussing *'John Brown's Body." No Turning Back It was as If the lime had eom« nd there was no turning back. I ad been longing to find a new .imuJatlon In my career. , The road> lour aspect appealed o me. I believe that an actor can econie HS .sedentary and slate on ie Broadway stage as in Holly- •ood. • Bxit there IB another reason tor ny decision. I think that Stephen Vincent tenet's epic poem, which U being rranged for the first time as a icatcr piece by Lnughlon, is an nportant document for Americana i these times. Benet sings of the American spir- unl intangibles which so many f us have forgotten in our fiwca ride in our material plenty. We are not universally loved— ven by those who draw aid from s abroad. And perhaps some day can help them to trust us by ap- earing throughout the world m John Brown's Body."

East won with ihe queen of diamonds and returned the suit to dummy's ace. Thus West's long suit was established in the first two tricks. South needed at least two clubs to make his contract, so he imme diately tried the club finesse. This had tbe great merit of getting the agony over quickly. West took the king of clubs and the rest of his diamonds to defeat the contract. South should have won the first trick with dummy's ace of diamonds, since this was one of the standard positions in which an expert does not hold up. Whether East dropped the queen or the ten of diamonds, the suit would be blocked. Declarer woujd immedi ately try the club finesse, and West would win with the king. If West then cashed the king ol diamonds. South's nine would be come established (or a, second stop per.
