Taft's academic scnsiblilitics are offended by the death sentences given 11 Nazi warjtrict system. Timinals at Nuernberg. He feels ' that the sentences, if not the verdict, were a miscarriage of justice, with an under Selective Service. The average for the United States is 2 per cent. States like New York and California showed only one- tenth of one per cent. "Where does this tremendous deficit in education come from'.' It comes from the poorly organized and inefficient rural school clis- scnson while the Bobcats •• have been clipped twice. i The huskier Hope boys, if they live up to past performances, will be hard to hold and its usually a question of which team caiji score lhe mosl poinls. They have been good for at least 12 poinls in every gcime this season, while their largest score was 20 points. Camden also is offensive team and from past records fans arc due to sec plenty of action with frequent scoring. Hope sticks mainly to the ground for yardage while Camdcii mixes it up on every drive and have a short pass attack which has accounted for most ol their yardage. Officiating tonight will be; Hcf ercc, .Guy Reeves, Hendrix; Umpire; Jim McLcod, Arkansas; Head- linesman, Archie Colhrcn, Arkan sas and Field Judge; Teddy Jones Ouachita. The game is designated home coming for the Bobcats and coro nation festivities arc planned. A the halftimc period the Hope anc Camden bands will perform. Th game will start at 8 o'clock. and lhat life imprisonment would have been punishment enough. Ho expresses the opinion that most A- mcricans "viewed with discomfort" the Ncurnbcrg and Japanese wait-rime trials. Senator Tafl is a lawyer, and his objections may be legally sound. But we doubt that most Americans were outraged by the Nuernberg verdict— unless, indeed, because . Hitler's second political heir escaped the gallows and three of his lop advisors and assistants went scot free. The whole judgment, Mr. Taft ' feels, was one ol vengeance rather than justice. He thinks that we have violated a fundamental principle of American law by trying the Nazis under and ex - post - facto statute. Further, he believes that hanging 11 men won't discourage future aggressive war, "for no one makes aggiessive war unless he expects to win." «''l There is a temptation at this "point to paraphrase Patrick 1 Henry and say, "If this bo vengeance, make the mosl of it!" Where docs justice end and vengeance begin? Is there no clement of vengeance in American laws which permit the execution of men for an individual murder or kidnaping or rape? And why should that clement be absent in the trial of men who planned, or- j dcred or executed these crimes by} the millions? j Senator Taft implied that the cl- , emcnt of vengeance might have been ruled out if Ihc Nir/.i war leaders hud been given only lite imprisonment. But, if the vengeance molive is wrong, why should not any punishment be equally vengeful? The senator is also disturbed by the ex - post - facto law under which the Nazis were tried. It is true thai the nations of the world waited until after a war that took the lives of an estimated 30,000.000 persons to decide that causing the dcalh of HO,000,000 persons was a 1 .•rime. But to have avoided a legal 'faux pas at Nuernberg it would been necessary to wait ior another world war before trying its instigators— provided, of course, lh.it any instigators, counsel or judges survived. Then there is Mr. Taft's contention that outlawing aggression won't do much good, since no one makes aggressive war unless he expects to win. That, from a lawyer, seems inconsistanl. For it might be argued with equal logic that there isn't ..much point in a law against in' ''dividual murder, since it doesn't seem to discourage thn practice. But, sound or unsound, Senator Tafl's legal hair - splitting is in questionable taslc, Io say the very least. How must it seem to the families of those who were tortured and starved and slain at Ihc will and knowledge and order of these war lords to hear the solemn senator pleading, in effect, for their lives? However honest Mr. Taft may have been in estimating American ' public opinion oi this matter, we Hope und believe that his finger has slipped off the public pulse. We should rather think that Americans have "viewed with discomfort his condemnation of the Nuernberg sentences. 'Various attempts have been made to reorganize the school district system in order to make a high school education available to every child in Arkansas. Initiated Act. No. 1 would attempt to do so by dissolving all districts with less than 350 enumeration, and building each county's school \Vstcm around a certain number of high schools, plus a general rural district.

Lewis' United Mine Workers (AFL) warned the administration that any attempt to continue government wage controls was doomed. Attorney General Tom C. Clark revealed after the cabinet meeting that the Justice Department is examining the government soft coal contract which Lewis threatens to void Nov. 1 unless the government agrees to start negotiations then for a new wage pact. Clark said the department was making the study so the government's legal experts will be prepared when they are called on for advice. Presumably, the study was being made to determine whether the contract signed last May 29 between Lewis and Secretary of Interior J. A. Krug is rcopcnablc. Krug's Federal Coal Administration has said the contract contains no reopening clause. Lewis insists the •agreement expressly allowed reopening on ten days' notice. A ship owners policy committee met today to consider a union proposal which if accepted would end a 25-day strike on the East and Gulf coasts. The operators, representing 44 shipping companies, were to give their answer at an afternoon negotiating session.

State Policeman Portcrfield of Hope investigated the accident. Quads Born to New York Woman, But One Dies New York, Oct. 25. — (/P) — Quadruplets—three boys and a girl—were born today io diminutive Mrs. Lillian Haupt- nian, 29, but one of the boys died an hour find a half after birth. The mother and other three children were reported "doing well." Dr. George J. Bcrson, who delivered the babies, said Mrs. Hauplman, whom he described as five feet Jour inches .. lull, had expected triplets, but the fourth baby was a surprise. The children were born five weeks prematurely, he added. The first child was born at 7 a. m. and the others at r'ive- minute intervals. They were placed in incubators immediately without being put on the scales but the doctor said each weighed about three pounds. The father, Abraham, ill, said when asked his reaction to becoming father of the quadruplets, replied: "How would you feel?" The Hauplmans have married six yours and one other child, Bobby, and one half years old. been have three Initiated Act No. Much Damage Reported After Rain Lightning struck Ihc Hcmpstcad county courthouse during a violent electrical storm here late yesterday causing approximately lji2oO damage. Damage was confined to a flue lunnin.'j from lhe basement boiler. The lightning was ground by the elevator shal'l eliminating further damage. The J. C. Penney Company store reported between $500 and ,$600 water damage to drygoods in a storeroom.

Figures at lhe Experiment Station revealed 3.15 inches of rain during Uie 31- hour pcucU. Subject to General Election November 5 j added an amendment to tho constitution which permitted cities of 5,000 or more to vote a one mill tax for the support of libraries, since that time Little Rock, Fort Smith, Pine Bluff and a number of other cities have voted such a tax and their libraries have been greatly improved. Now the time has come when counties arc asking same privilege of voting a small tax tor libraries serving the small towns and rural sections of the state if they desire to do so. At this time they cannot do so and as a result libraries arc poorly supported and give in- adeciuatc service. Twelve counties are without public libraries of any kind. The Hcmpstcad County Library has its headquarters in the Hope City Hall. Three Branch Libraries are located at Blcvins, Fulton, Washington. Two stations arc located in Ozan and McNab. The Hempstcad County Library has 293S registered borrowers and a book slock of 9369. This year a negro collection has been added and books have been circulated through the negro schools of Hcmpstcad county. There arc new county libraries in thirty - nine counties.' Thirty - six counties arc still without countywide library service. In those founlies which do have libraries they are operating on fifteen cents per capita. Thirty - five cents per capita is needed for even moderately efficient service. The passage of the County Libr ary Tax Amendment No. 39, would help correct this omission in our state law. It would not vole a tux but would merely make it possible to vole a tax later in those counties desiring it. Already six counties are levying a voluntary tax to support their libraries since they arc not yet allowed to do so by law. Please keep in mind that the tax which might be levied is one mill or one dollar on each $1,000 property valuation. Also, cities that arc. already taxed for the maintenance of a library cannot be taxed again Regardless of whether you live ir a city which has already voted ; tax or in a county which canno now do so, your vote is needed, MS all citizens must vote on the question.

Arkansas colleges have a big slake involved in Initiated Act No. 1 (the school reorganization acli that will be voted upon in the November 5 General Election. The proposal has one basic purpose—to give every child access to M free accredited hiyh school. It is evident from the crowded conditions at colleges that the schools have almost all the students they can accommodate this year. But this is a result of so many ex- seryicemon continuing or starting their college education for the first lime in five years. Arkansas per cent of total enrollment in hiijh school is less than Ivilf of that of some states. This, the Arkansas Education Association points out. is ii result of over 1,600 of Arkansas' 2.179 school districts offering only elementary school oo- porluniUcs for their children. In 1941-42 Arkansas should have produced 21,337 hiuh school graduates but actually hiid 12,870 graduates. In normal limes, collese enrollment in Arkansas is small because Arkansas has next to the lowest per cent of graduation from high school in the lutlion.

HIGHTOWEft New York, Oct. 25 —f/P) — Confronted with strong opposition Jed by the United Stales and Great Britain, Soviet Russia today withdrew her demand that the veto question be excluded :"rpm discussion in the United Nations assembly. After hearing almost unanimous opposition to his motion to strike the veto issue from, the assembly's provisional agenda, Soviet Representative Andrei Y .Vishinsky announced he was withdrawing his proposal in the interest of "unanimity." . : He told the, 14-nalion general (steering) committee that he ielt t his duty, hpvvcver, to warn both .he committee, and the assembly hat discussion of _tiie controversial ssue could lead to "no practical results." .. ! | He described the move to bring up the veto question as "a political attack against essential •principles of the Charter," and declared that Russia "will not insist on exclusion, of the.items from the agenda" and "will not object to their discussion" in the assembly. He said, however, that he fell compelled to put the committee "on guard" and to warn that it was entering "dangerous" ground. Before withdrawing'his proposal, Vishinksy had listened- to a half- dozen opposition speakers, headed by the United States and Britain, with China joining in. ' While making it clear that they were not committing themselves on the issue of whether the veto provisions of the'charter should be changed, the two big western powers insisted that the assembly must not be denied the right to discuss the question.

The company said [he contract provided for only 16 hours notice. Negotiations continued, meanwhile, between the air line and the pilots' union. President Truman announced thai the coal mine walkout threatened by John L. Lewis' United Mine Workers, (AFL), was being handled by the secretary of interior. It was believed, however, that he would discuss the threat with his cabinet today. Observers pointed oul that the question of removing wage seagili- zalion is demanded by Lewis could be resolved only by Mr. Truman, despite his announcement. In the shipping strike, union officials predicted that idle ships would be manned within hours if the operators accept the union's counter proposal. The operators, however, gave no indication of ing :the .trials.Vwhich are to last through 1947. ' Taylor told a news cor.ferenc the defendants would include top officials of I. G.

Friedrich (Fritz) Thysscn, prewar head of big armaments and steel works, is "under study like anyone else," Taylor said. However, other official sources indicated that Thysscn would not be tried, saying he was not in Germany during the war. Taylor said most of those wanted for trial were in American custody, but lhat some might be brought in from other zones. No plans have been made for additional joint war crimes trials with other Allies, although provision is made for such action if it proves desirable, Taylor said. The trials will begin nexl month with the arraignment of the 23 German doctors charged with in- luman experiments. A staff of 700 ocrsons has been assembled al- :eady and personnel is expected to approximate the 1,500 employed by Ihc international military tribunal Dcfore the trials are over. Taylor named well-known Germans as "probable defendants" they included: Field Marshal Gen. Erliard Milch, former air ministry official and air force inspector general, who Taylor said was believed responsible for the Luftwaffe's medical experiments on concentration camp inmates and for use of slave labor.
