^I£J, A vtfAiV"" jj" 1 - v 11' T fc: HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Saruftfey, Nevcrnber 5, Laney Neutral in Garland Election By BOS BROWN United Press 'Staff Correspondent • Little Rock, Nov. "1 --(UP)— Gov. Ben Laney wants everyone concerned to know that he's not taking sides in the War Veteran- McLaugmin organization political battle in Garland County. Some time ago he denied that he knew of any political machines in Arkansas — a statement interpreted as a mild slap at Garland Conn' ty veterans attempting to bre;ik in. to Maryo Leo McLaughlin's polili- cal monopoly. However, this week he evened the score with a rebuke lo State Sen. Ernest Maner — allegedly, in the McLaughlin camp. Laney expressed himself as be• irig provoked when Manor used a report on state hospital conditions prepared at the governor's request ' to further publicize his campaign for re-election. Maner is opposed by Independents David Whittington and Lewis Hutchingson in Tuesday's general election in the Garland-Saline County district. ''Manor was appointed to sludy v needs at the hospital before he re' ceivcd an opponent," Laney said. 1 "At that time I assumed' that he " was the senator from that district. "Ernest apparently was using ' mv request politically, but I didn't mean for it to be used 'that way." ' The governor said he'asked Maner to study problems at the hospi- , tal particularly, at the Benton unit, because he considered the , senator an authority on the institu- * tion. 'Being from that area he has , done a lot of work along that line," Laney said. In his report to . the governor, Maner .recommended a building program which includes a infirmary, two new buildings ior treatment of tuberculosis, a new build"" ing for treatment of mentally ill criminals and a new five-building Hope Star $t«,r of Hop* 1899; Pr««J 1W, Consolidated January II. 1*29 Published every weukday afternoon by STAR PUBLISHING CO.

The commissioners have arrang ed a school for judges, clerks and sheriffs deputies who will serve in the election next Tuesday. Chairman Gay Newberry says that members of the Conway Bar Association will explain the proper conduct of elections. The manner in which voting has been carried on in Faulkner County drew criticism recently from Circuit Judge William J. Waggoner and others following a recent court contest in the county judge's race. Although Judge Waggoner voided the Democratic nomination, Incumbent Judge Lewis F. Noggle withdrew and left Roy W. Sims as an independent candidate for the office. Now—A Non-Skid Knife for Ped-Edters Campaign Are you a frustrated pea-eater? Do you suffer from a defeated urge to inhale the vegetable from a iknlfe?

The veterans, members of the Veteran's League' of Den Norte county, telegraphed a petition to Gov. Earl Warren and State Attorney General Robert Kenny asking for official state poll watchers. The veterans are supporting Charles Glover and have openly displayed weapons at pre-election rallies. Under-Sheriff Frank J. Blacker ,y, the second candidate for the of:ice held by retiring Sheriff Bud Huffman, said it was a "tempest n a teapot." •Veterans, in their telegram, asked for an investigation of "threats"against the editor of the Del Norte Triplicate of Crescent City" and claimed there "is violence expected." "The freedom of the press is being threatened by gangster methods in the Nov. 5 general election," the telegram said. (At Sacramento, J. H. McClelland, chief of the Department of Justice investigative section, said he would call Crescent City today for further details. "I cjm't say what action we will take,' 1 he said, Most Nations Quick to Jump on Disarmament Bandwagon Which Molotov Started By J. M. ROBERTS, JR. AP Foreign Affairs Analyst (Substituting or MacKenzie) Many delegates to the United Nations assembly i'eel that Russian Foreign Minister Molotov's Tuesday speech indicated distrust and misunderstanding of the motives of the United States and other nations, but they were quick to jump . on his disarmament bandwagon. Previously, general disarmament had hardly been considered. Then suddenly it became a general desire, but with the proviso that it must be accompanied by international inspection and guarantees similar to those suggested by the U. S. for the atom bomb. That will prove a tough provision; when if comes to convincing the-Russians. But Molotov's proposal could hardly have been better timed to fall in. with the Austin restatement aided by a brief word from President Truman, of American policy. For those who may have mistaken frequent failure to implement that policy for a lack of one, a 'rew lines are sufficient to describe it. It has always been the same, both abroad and at home. Austin said the U. S. is for removing the burden of arms, :Cor a decent life and xor a rising standard of living .in the light of the Golden Rule. Truman -a.aid.--there was a' special connotation in world ®— Continued ffom Page One that the Republicans are "intent on bringing about inflation' 'and asserted that GOP leaders had "destroyed effective price control and prevented the orderly distribution ot meal and other necessities." Philip Murray, CIO president, urged workers to repudiate "every reactionary Old Guard Republican," and added in a Washington broadcast: "If reaction wins on November 5, it will launch the most vicious assault on labor's rights in American history." The campaign side issue of Rep. Andrew J. . May's candidacy cropped Up when Rep. McCormacK (D-Mass), House majority leader, said he endorsed the Kentucky Democrat because May rendered j"valiant service" in getting defense bills through the House in vartime. May is chairman of the •louse Military Committee. The only Republican speaker of M'ominence was Senator Owen Jrewsler of Maine ,who drew boos nd hisses at Seattle when he told Jniversity of Washington students 10 favors keeping American troops n China. Brewster attacked the Democrat- c party as "an institution of divided ideas and ideals." o Many Districts Continued from Page One ucational structure.

So in order to hire a local girl us teacher, the directors arranged to transfer one pupil from an adjoining district and set up a one-pupil school. Another instance was that of a district which paid an instructor $1800 to teach eight elementary pupils while a school bus carried a tew high school students to an adjoining large school. Chief opposition to the act, education department officials believe, is being generated in the small districts made wealthy by oil or industry. its The size of Russia's army and deployment outside her An example is that of a small district in Hot Spring county which had a total revenue )ast year of $72,000, of which it spent $59,640 on 422 pupils. Despite this expenditure, which averaged $141 i'or each pupil compared with a stale average of $45, the district ended the year with a cash balance of $52,000. Two 'small districts in Columbia county spent $92 and $10 i'or each pupil. In another county the per capita expenditure soared to $"454 in a two-teacher high school where the daily average attendance was 15. In the same county there were 271 pupils attending six Negro schools, where the average per capita expenditure was :ji21-. Education officials believe that every student in the state should share alike and that consolidation of districts is the answer to more equitable distribution of money.

Writer Says Soviets See Better Understanding Between Reds And U.S. By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Annlyst .Eddy Gilmore, AP chief of bureau In Moscow, reports that Russians reali/.e there may be ntormy period ahead in the United Nations but the general impression is ihat the United States and the '.Soviet Union may be moving into a :iew phase ot understanding which will be of benefit to all. It certainly is good to hear that the Russians 'eel that way, because there have been grave doubts in the western world on ihis point However, the proof of the plum duff is in the eating thereof, and so we must wait and see. One thing is clear: This is the witching hour when the spirit of amity is likely to walk, if at all. The vime of power maneuvering i'or positions either is about past, or it will lead us into another conflict. The most hopeful sign thus far is the general agreement (on ilie i.ace of it) that armaments must be slashed. If the major powers .being united on this point, can now worn out details that will be satisfactory to all, we mav nave lound the road to peace. This is so because the dangerous split between Russia and the Western Allies has oeen due in considerable degree \o mutual doubts and suspicions regarding the mighty lighting machines which were being maintained . Moscow has made a great and positive gesture in officially calling xor reduction of armaments. The UnHcd States has complemented that perfertly with the proposal for safeguarding arms control by an international inspection system. Such international inspection is, of course, a controversial subject. Russia objected to it in connection with America's atomic energy pro posals, on the ground that it wouk be an infringement of sovereignty. However, the Soviet may regard the broader issue of disarmament differently and so change its mind about atomic energy. Surely we haven't so soon forgotten the terrible lesson which Hitler taught us about secret rearmament. The mere pledge to disarm won't get vhe members ,o£ the United Nations anywhere. Your banker, even if he is your best friend, makes you put up security for a loan from his institution. The only way a nation can demonstrate its sincerity is by throwing Us works open to inspection. If it has nothing to hide it svpn't mind inspection, especially since the other .fellow will be getting the same treatment.

It is one of the chief reasons why the United States feels forced to maintain the greatest peace-time forces in her history. What Russia actually has, and therefore what must be kept to balance her, is not known. In 1938, according to best available figures, Russia had an army of some 2,500,000 men, on which she spent about $5,500,000,000 at the 1938 price of the ruble. For next year she plans to spend some $13,500,000,000 on defense, at the current ruble rate which we have ;io means of comparing with 1938. In a monopolistic state, where supplies are produced for need, without profit, under a monetary system which has different rates according to the use to which money is put, and where there is no outer yardstick by which to measure the pay and other remuneration of troops, money figures don't mean much. Except that Russia probably maintains a greater proportion of her war-time strength than any Other major power. Since all military preparations involve obsolescence in peace and destruction in war, they represent a complete capital loss. They wrap themselves about nations like old men of the sea, coking the living standards of the world. Any move to loosen the grip is welcomed. But, while to seek the means may be good, there seems to be no reason to expect limitations or controls to be any more effective than in the past. Armies, atom bombs, and war materials in general all : ; 'all into the same category. Any plan which will actually control them will control war itself, and neither is likely to happen before the other.
