Monday, April 8,1968 RubinoH's Violin Plays Second Fiddle Rubinoff's famous $100,000 Stradivarius violin played "sec* ond fiddle" to an instrument made by Harden Lamb of De« light, but the maestro played both with artistic distinction at a concert in the Hope High School auditorium last Friday night. After the skilled violinist had delighted the small but appreciative audience with familiar selec* tions ranging from "Clair de Lune" to "Jalousie," he called Mr. Lamb to the stage, put aside the "Strad," and unveiled the new violin. He, then, completed the concert on the instrument made by Mr. Lamb over a period of one year in spare time from managing the feed mill at Delight. The performer, brought to Hope under the auspices of the Hope Rotary Club, was highly complimentary of the instrument made by the Arkansan. Mr. Lamb told this reporter that he had been making violins about two years, the instrument which Rubinoff had played was his second completed one, and he was in the process of constructing a third violin at the present time. Auditor Says Sheriff's Books Wrong MORRILTON, Ark. (AP) Harry L. Frese of Little Rock, a certified public accountant, testified Saturday that the records of Conway County Sheriff Marlin Hawkins indicated Hawkins had taken credit for the same item more than once in a number of instances. Frese said he had audited Hawkins' record last fall but had changed credits to charges against the sheriff after a "further examination" of the records. Frese said that $9,974 should be added to the traffic fines and bonds that Hawkins has not accounted for from 1963 through I960. Hawkins is charged in a taxpayers suit with misappropriation of county funds. Frese said excessive credits accounted for most of the $9,974. Frese testified in December that Hawkins failed to account for more .than $63,000 in traffic receipts during the four years. Hawkins testified that the funds went to pay four justices of the peace and Prosecutor Phillip H. Loh, who tried the cases in traffic court. Hawkins also said cash refunds to motorists accounted for a considerable amount. Frese used 33 tables he ted prepared in liis testimony. He added charges of $4,376 for 1963, $2,157 for 19G4, $2,124 for 19G5 and $1,316 for 1966. Snuill Army The Encyclopaedia Britannica of I860 reported that on the eve of the Civil War the Union Army consisted of slightly less than 13,000 men. However, the militia totaled more than 2.7 million.

Sf AM Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Foster Johnson is a political pixie With no particular place In the spec* trum of Arkansas politics. He may be the only candidate for any office who does not claim support from any organized group. Yet he Is aiming for one of the top offices available — the Senate seat held by Sen. J. William Fulbright. Johnson said he will file during the last week of this month to oppose Fulbright in the Democratic primary. Fulbright already has filed for re-election. Shooting high is not new to Johnson. He made his first bid for political office against Sen. John L. McClellan two years ago. McClellan trounced him. Undismayed, he started six months later laying the groundwork for a campaign against Fulbright. "A lot of people are telling me, 'We took you as a joke last time, but we're taking you seriously this time,' " Johnson said In an interview.

William F. Cody began his career as a messenger with wagon trains, and went on to become a driver, Pony Express Rider, guide, Chief Scout for the United States Army, Indian fighter and international showman. As Teddy Roosevelt once described him, "he embodied those traits of courage, strength, and self-reliant hardihood which are so vital to the well-being of the nation." The legend of the American west is filled with the exploits of Colonel Cody and his rifle. On more than one occasion, the fates of both were importantly joined to help deter- mine the outcome of what has come to be known as the American Odyssey — the open ing of the last Frontier. In 187-1. "Buffalo Bill" Cody wrote to the Winchester Firearms people, stating he had tried and tested nearly every gun made in the United States, and for general hunting and Indian fighting, their improved rille was "The Boss." How fitting that "the gun that won the west" should play a small but important role in the establishment of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming. The Center houses the nation's most extensive collection A? cent of his era, they are traditional 30-30 repeaters in both carbine and rifle styles, with bead-post front sight and semi- buckhorn rear sight. The hammer, trigger, loading gate, forearm tip and crescent butt plate gleam with nickleplate. The barrel and tang are inscribed respectively: "Buffalo Bill Commemorative," and in the colonel's script, "W. F. Cody — Chief of Scouts." Each of the rich American walnut stocks are polished with a high- gloss finish, and will have an official Buffalo Bill Memorial Association commemorative medallion embedded in the stock. Each rifle comes equipped with a nickle-plated saddle The Negro Community "HMorse 'as "detriments to "this " country" because of their positions on Viet Nam. Johnson said that only about 30 per cent of the Arkansas voters have any real interest in the Senate race and that 85 per cent of these are anti-Fulbright.
