Judge Sets Aside Divorce Decree of '42 SEATTLE—(/P)-Judge Donald McDonald has dismissed a petition for a writ of habeas curpus which would iave given custody of Adris Shirley Scott, 12, to her mother, Mrs. Hazel Hornsby Scott, Falfurrias, Texas, bookkeeper. ."This .is tragic," Judge McDonald said. "But the child hardly knows her mother and made clear that she does not want to go with her.' The Judge stated that the modification of a divorce decree which the mother obtained in Fresno County in 1942, giving her custody of the child was not obtained "through clue process of law," since Scott was not notified. Mrs. Scott claimed she was unable to locate her former husband until last week, Following the Court's decision, Mrs. Scott's attorney handed Scott's lawyer a summons on an action asking payment of $2,400 support money.

Cuyler SATURDAY AND SUNDAY Tefcas Today By JACK RUTLEDGE Associated Press Staff •Tens of thousands 'of Texans have attended Texas A. & M. Col- •lege, and a picture of the beloved Aggie campus is engraved on their hearts- forevermore. But there are other millions who never have seen A. &,M., and this sketch is written for them. < Aggies have been much in the news lately, and this may be like closing 1 the barn door, etc! But Aggies will be'in the news again— they're always in the news somewhere—so absorb this atmosphere: The .Aggie campus is a sprawling tiling of over 500 acres. It is about four niiles from Bryan. College Station, a town of over 2,00!} ix>pu- lation, grew 'up fringe. on the campus Miles and miles of paved roads wind between the big brick buildings —streets lined with evergreen live oak. The dormitories and other buildings are rarely over three and four stories tall because there is so much room on the campus height is not necessary. But they are big structures, strong and long and wide. Tho first thing you see as you approach Aggieland are two huge smokestacks (one with "A&M College" painted on it) and a big water tower, grotesquely painted with various names and insignia. Students risk their lives to paint the 210-foot water tower, and school officials say they don't know how or when they, do it. About once every four years, the school repaints it white.- In a few days, the first of the names are back. The big new administration building behind a beautiful formal garden is the fin*, bunding you come We're to be relied on in every way when you consult us about the fitness of your car. When we give you the "go" signal, you know your motor will give you safer, smoother mileage, with special seasonal preparation for the hot weather ahead.

By HAL BOYLE LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—(/P)—Arkansas—yep, you still pronounce it "/•rkansaw"—' is just plain Retting country-tired of being kidded as a hillbilly state. The folks down this way have taken a lot of joshing about living on a barren ridgeland populated by- flea-bitten hound dogs, tick-ridden mules, razorback hogs and rangy moonshine-swilling mountaineer who subsist on hominy grits am salt pork and marry off their bare foot daughters at the age of sevei years. But the long tolerance of the Arkansans is fearing thin, and their home state pride is high They think somebody ought to bring the radio comedians and the Joe Miller jok^ books up to date 01 lA what is going on in Arkansas "Why when we wanted a razorback hog as a mascot for our state University football team we had to send out of state to get him,' snorted one incensed native son "We don't grow that kind of anima here anymore.'' So let's see just what is going on in Arkansas, which always liked its nickname of "The Wondei State" but now prefers to regard itself as "The Land of Tomorrow.' The state is 53,102 square miles in area, as large as Pennsylvania and New, Jersey combined, and has a population of almost 2,000,000. The per capita income rose by 108.9 percent from 1939 to 1942 almost double the 58.1 rice average throughout the United States Agriculture is breaking away from the old ruinous "one crop" system. Cotton is still the main in come producer — Arkansas stands third among the states in its production—but it also ranks second in strawberries, fourth in rice.fifth in peaches and third in spinach for processing. If you think of the Arkansan as a gangling pellagra-sapped Jeeter Lester, think again. Deaths from pellagra dropped from 26.4 percent 100,000 population in 1930 to 2.9 in 1944. A U. S. census report showed Arkansas had the fewest number of deaths per shousand population of any state in the Union. It's healthy. Tourists spend $70,000,000 a year or more in Arkansas — and they don't come to watch the mountaineers scratch themselves. Some 500,000 alone come to Hot Springs to bake out the rheumatism they got in another climate. A few things Arkansans are proud of about their state: It produces 95 percent of all the domestic bauxite or aluminum ore processed in the states. It has the only diamond fields in America — although there are still fewer than can be found on Park Avenue. It has a reserve of 1,512,000,000 tons of coal, and natural gas and oil production is booming. Power rates are aYnong the lowest in the nation. Its bank deposits jumped from $200,817,000 in 1939 to $768,348000 in 1945. Its population is 99.4 percent native-born—73.6 percent white, 25.8 percent Negro. It is the birthplace of Gen, Douglas MacArthur. Arkansas is popularly regarded as an old southern state. It regards itself, however, as being in the Southwest, One editor said: "We'd like our critics who regard us as politically backward to know that Arkansas doesn't elect demagogues such as Huey Long. It takes more than a mouthful of big promises to get elected in Arkansas." One Arkansas asset its supporters don't usually mention is the state's friendly hospitality. This assures any stranger a welcome except the visitor who starts off by remarking: 6Uf 6Ufc WAV / YOU WIM, \ / BUTTERCUP.'

Vets Given Advice On Subsistence Pay DALLAS — UP) — Veterans who terminated or interrupted their schooling during May are not entitled to a full month's subsistence for that period, the Dallas brand office of the Veterans Administration announced today. Veteran students in this category who receive checks tomorrow for a "ull month should not cash them, ;he VA said, but should return them ;c the regional office having jurisdiction with a letter reporting the date training was stopped. The VA explained that some schools which are ending their spring terms during May did not end in the necessary reports early enough to permit adjustment of subsistence rolls for this month. The office said that after the VA has received notice of the time Legislature (Continued Prom Pa ire 1) In conjunction with the city's clean up campaign, the new trash barrel ifcl to be sola to residents was exhibited yesterday afternoon by Fire Chief Ben White.

GET OUR SIGNAL to. As /you swing around it and drive around the campus, you can promptly get lost. After all, A. & M. is a city of 7,500 population (not counting College Station). There are that many students there — all. men. Once a handful of girls attended A. & M. but officials went to court to keep them out. Today, the only women on the campus are wives of veterans. Most of the buildings on the campus have utilitarian names -^ the chemistry lab, animal husbandry building, horse bam, the exchange store the mechanical engineering shops, the agriculture building. But 'there are names that breed memories—Guion Hall Sbisa Hall, the Old North Gate, Kyle Field, .Military .Walk,. pu&can Hjill.

Police Deparment is a man who likes his job. He accepted promotion to assistant chief of police "on condition that I can keep my job as dogcatcher." Lay has been in charge of the police pound, jail' and court baliffs since 1944. The Speaker appoints all House Committee members. and may thereby wiald considerable influence over the fate of proposed legislation. To a lesser degree he is also able to control the consideration of bills which reach the House calendar. The Speakership has frequently proved a stepping- ston* to higher olfice. The influenza epidemic of 1918, originated in Asia, resulted in the loss of more lives than did the first World War.
