freedom'Fight ,. Feb. 14— tff) — Three Christ! ne*smen who had f>T6ttfled their constitutional rights to fteedohi of the press must go to jftll for publiaction of news stories ftftd editorial comment that the Whirl of criminal appeals today held in contempt of the Neuces court. Judge Tom 1>. Beauchamp dissented from the majority opinion in the Split decision, written by Judge Lloyd W. Davidson. Before the court was the news- mens' application for a writ of habeas corpus to void a judgment of the Neuces county court, which held them in contempt for publication of news stories and editorial Comment on a forcible detainer suit. They were Conway Craig, publish- ei 1 of the Caller-Times; Bob Mc- Cfacken, managing editor; Tom Mulvaney, reporter who covered the trial. They were sentenced to serve three days in jail by County Judge Joe D. Browning on grounds that the news stories and comment published in the newspaper reflected on the integrity of the court "to affect the course of justice and the rights of litigants x x x and to compel judgment contrary to law and evidence." Counsel for the newsmen argued that the accounts published during the trial were accurate and fair, that the editorial continent was designed to bring, out judicial reform, and the unusual circumstances of the case compelled prominent display. They pleaded their constitution rights to freedom of the press and freedom of speech. •The court denied the application at Craig, McCrcicken and Mulvaney for the writ of habeas corpus and remanded them -to the custody of the Nueces county sheriff. :"When the several publications in the instant case are considered together and their chronological order of appearance, there is no escape from the conclusion and it was the purpose and intent of the publishers thereof to force, compel and coerce Judge Browning to grant Mayes a new trial," said the majority opinion. •The forcible detainer suit from Which the contempt action sprung ^as styled Bush M. Jackson et versus Joe L. Mayes et al. It was being heard by the county judge on appeal from justice court. , Jh his dissenting opinion, Judge Beauchamp said: "I have searched in vain to find a case in this or any other jurisdic- dictlon, where a party has been held in contempt of court for publishing the' truth; for attempting to induce the court to decide a case according to law; for a judgment nisi Which has been held valid in a case bf constructive contempt. I have examined all the cases cited by all parties, and most of those upon which such cases relay as well as many others. There is no parallel to this case to be found." •GracieRenorfcl By GRACIE ALLEN Well, I see Lady As'Lor has been having a lot of fun on her visit to dear old America, the land of her 'birth. The 'best hope, for world peace is British and American cooperation, she told a conference in Washington, waving a nail - studded olive branch. The trouble with the world, said she, is that we've been having too many arguments 1 and she'll start a beauty with any- uraele one who says she's wrong. Lady Astor also said women should play a larger part in international affairs, because they don't start wars. But goodness how some of them can start arguments! However, I do think all of us girls should admire Lady Astor for what she has done for our morale. No man ever thinks of women as the weaker sex when she's around. —^. • Industrial peace between management and labor will have to be achieved — through the process of Collective bargaining—with government assistance but not government compulsion.—President Truman. * * * Allied aid is insufficient.

H. Power, University of Texas petroleum engineer who is chairman of the petroleum engineering section of the meeting. He will discuss "Petroleum Engineering Education and the Quantitative Approach." Other outstanding petroleum engineering professors scheduled to speak and their topics are: Lester C. Uren, University of California, "Petroleum Economics;" Dr. R. E. Sherrill, University of Pittsburg, "The Role of Geology in the Petroleum Engineering Curricula;" Dr. Santiago Vera, Central University, Caracas, Venezuela, "Petroleum'En- gineering Education in Venezuela;" Dr. L.

"The significance of this meeting of the mineral industry division, which includes petroleum engineering," Mr. Power explained, "is that we are analyzing petroleum engineering and at last are presenting a united front. Considerable progress has been made by the petro- leuni engineering department at the University of Texas and other universities during the past five years toward standardizing, unifying and defining the field. This session will emphasize the educational aims of petroleum engineers."

Is "Monte Carlo ol Far East' By ttAt BOYtfc MACAO, Feb. 14—(.#)—This tiny Portuguese colony, "Monte Carlo of the Far East" can hardly be called a thorn in the side of the Chinese government. It is too small for that. But it is annoying to the Chinese, who resent even having this little five- square-mile area of their country under foreign domination, just as they still resent British control of Hong Kong. For China it would be a simple matter to throw out the Portuguese, who have dominated Macao since 15S7. It is lightly garrisoned and the only Portuguese naval strength there consists of two sloops. In the full pride of their rising nationalism. Chinese officers swagger about the streets carrying needless sidearms. And for a short period they even instituted an unofficial blockade, refusing to permit Chinese farmers to carry food into thp area from the South China mainland. This blockade was lifted after Chinese guerrilla officers learned they were hurting their own people far more than the Portuguese. There are fewer than 5,000 full-blooded Portuguese among the colony's normal peacetime population of 200,000. Most of the rest are Chinese, although there are representatives from almost every nation in the world. This is one of the Orient's truo melting pots. The inhabitants even speak n special dialect called "Macanese," made up of oils of language from all the trading peoples who have colled there through the centuries.

Japanese military elements moved in, but more or less respected Ma- .cao's neutrality and the only open acts of warfare were committed by American pilots. They bombed the harbor five times—apparently bv mistake—and local residents are still a little annoyed by it..
