TUESDAY, MAY "4, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWfl ARKANSAS COLLEGE CHOIR — Composed of 24 voices, the Arkansas College Choir, under the direction of Dorothy Landis Gray, will appear at the 11 a. m. services of First Presbyterian Church here on Sunday.

Egyptian Court Sentences Two Rich Brothers CAIRO, Egypt (#)—Egypt's Revolutionary Court slapped long prison sentences today on .the Abul Fath brothers, two of Egypt's leading press tycoons. Neither man will go to jail but one may lose a million dollars or his newspapers. The three-man . military court found the two brothers, Mahmoud and Hassein Abul Fath, guilty of activities against the interests of the Egyptian state. Mahmoud was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment and confiscation of 358,438 pounds ($1,033,197) of his personal fortune, which the court said had been "illegally earned." Mahmoud, a former senator-of the Wafdist party, is now in Europe and was tried in absentia. His brother Hussein was sentenced to lo years in prison but the court suspended the sentence. A member of the court later said he -doubted Mahmoud had enough cash assets in Egypt to meet the confiscation f order. He added that the government then might confiscate the brothers' newspaper properties — Al Misri, the former Wafdist organ, which claims to be the largest daily 'in the Middle East, and a company which publishes Cairo's two leading French- language journals and a leading English-language morning paper. The two brothers ' had been haled up as part of a crackdown on the press by the military regime following Premier Gamabl Abdel Nasser's recent victory in his struggle for power with President Mohamed Naguib. Mahmoud, who has been living in Europe and the United States in recent years, was accused particularly of propagandizing against the military junta which ousted ex-King Farouk and now controls the government. No Christmas Trees? VICTORIA W — A campaign to eliminate Christmas trees is being urged on the British Columbia go- ernment by Bert Price, Social Credit member of the legislature from Vancouver. "Wholesale slashing of Christinas trees may one day imperil the lumber industry," he says. Youth Throws Worship Into Wild Turmoil SYDNEY, Apstralia MB — A small boy visiting the U. S. destroyer O'Bannon took only three minutes to throw the warship into turmoil yesterday. The boy — one of 10,000 visitors — wandered to the vessel's bridge and pulled every lever within reach. In rapid succession he: Sounded the general alarm, calling the crew to battle stations. Sounded the chemical alarm, Ordered full speed ahead all engines with the ships telegragh. He was just about to send a message on the destroyer's heliograph to the U. S. carrier Tarawa moored astern when the O'Bannon's deck officer sprinted onto the bridge to find out what was going on. Feeds His Prisoner As soon as his mate starts nesting, the rinoceros hornbill seals her into a hollow tree. He leaves a small opening for her bill to stick out- and brings her food until the brood is hatched. you can buy today? Whet's the biggest bargain How about electricity? Of course, your electric bill may be bigger than it used to be, but the facts are that in the last 15 years the price per kilowatt-hour of electricity has actually gone down ! What boosts your bill is the fact that today you use 2 to 3 times as much, if you're an average user. Just think for a minute of all the electric appliances you can enjoy today: automatic washer, ironer (ironing in half the time!), mixer, food freezer (sweet June peas in January I), dishwasher (no more dishpan hands!), vacuum cleaner, disposal unit —to name just a few fime-and-work savers, many of which didn't even exist 15 years ago. Small wonder if your bill looks bigger. But look at all you're getting for it! And at a price so low that electricity is still the biggest bargain in the family budget today!
