'*.^.*^ Twa MOM STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tuesday, November 5, India Making Imperishable History in Search for Key to Complete Independence By DeWITT MacKENZIE I AP Foreign Affairs Analyst India is making imperishable history these days in her search for ways of implementing ihe in• dependence which Britain has offered her, but one of the most striking developments is the spectacle of Hindu and Moslem leaders joining hands to plead with their peoples for cessation of the bloody communal' disorders which have been sweeping Bengal and other parts of the country. IE would be hard, to find enemies more bitter than the rank and :lie of the Moslems ,and the Hindus, who nave; been at., each others throats for centuries. Through long generations the feud was religious and racial, and when political consciousness arrived the great political parties unfortunately divided on those lines. Thus today the os- sence of the so-called political disorder is. religious and racial—these two things being mainly synony- moths in this case. Tradition has had it that the Hindus and the Moslems never could be brought together. I iirst encountered this back in 1916 in India, and found the same belief still prevailing during a visit in 1942-48. Indeed so fierce was the hdti*ed between the vwo religious groups that it took a lot of faith in .human nature to challenge that tradition. The British offer of dominion status in 1942 crashed on the rocks of the Hindu-Moslem controversy. And \vhen early this year the new Socialist government of Britain offered : India, independence. the project long" was held up by the leud. The stalemate was broken only when the British resorted 'lo the "daringly arbitrary idea of establishing a provisional government and inviting both sides to co'rrie and run it. Now we find the Hindu and Moslem leaders journeying together from New Delhi to Calcutta to make a joint appeal to communal, rioters to cease their strife, which has cost more than 5,000 lives and injured some 13,320 in various :parts of the country since July 1. The two Hindu leaders are none 'other than the famous Pandit Nehru, head of the new provisional government and former president of the All India Congress I which is predominantly Hindu), and oardar Patel, another Congress chief. The others' are Liaquat Ali Kahn, secretary of the Moslem League, and Sard'ar Abdur. Rab Nishtar. .also a league official. One 'swallow doesn't make a summer, and one incident of this sort doesn't .solve India's problem — but it is an encouraging demonstration of at least temporary solidarity. It. should be enough to convince even .the most skeptical that the Hindus: and Moslems can work together. As a malter of Jact I've seen them even living together in perfect harmony. In order to get a. aill under standing of the; position, one must know that much of the communal rioting as carried.;:i?ut .by v wholly ignorant ancf -ba'ckward people who might properly be characterized as primitives. Nehru himself was the victim recently of real savagery when he was up in the Khyber pass on the northwest frontier. There Moslem tribesmen attacked the party of the Hindu leader and things looked very nasty for a time. • . That incident could be put down to '•communal strife" but the "act is that these tribesmen literally are savages, whose main busines jn life is robbery and killing. They are'.>a tough lot, as I well know, having ridden with British troops when they rounded up GOO of these fellows back in 1916. Sq it's a mistake to try to gauge the temper of modern India by such demonstrations, because they belong -to the dark past.

Peace Group Keeps an Eye on Elections By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER New York, Nov. 5 —(/P)—Foreign diplomats engrossed in the gigantic task of building world peace kept a sharp but discreetly silent watch .on the American Congressional elections today. Persons familiar with tne views of many delegations to the United Nations Assembly and the Council of Foreign Ministers reported a general belief that present foreign policies are sufficiently bipartisan to rule out any major changes. But. there has been enough political controversy over the present American attitude toward P.ussia in particular to raise speculation about post-election trends in the conduct of American diplomacy. The Big Four foreign ministers moved into their second day's work on the eastern European peace treaties amid mounting evidence that Russian Foreign Minister Molotoy will stage a last ditch.fight 'to gain special ad- Bobcats Face Stiff Test at Benton Hope's ground-gaining Bobcats ace one of the sliffest tests of the season Friday night when they ourney to Benton for a conference game with the unbeaten bul lied anthers. The Bobcats came out of the Hot Springs game in good shape last week, after coming from behind :o win for the first time this season. Although the score was 20-13, it didn't indicate the power the local eleven displayed against Ihe Trojans. The Hope boys gained more lhan 400 yards from scrimmage. They didn't punt a single time despite.a muddy field, which gives some indicated of the running attack carried out by Jack Bell. Buddy Sutlon and Jack Wells. Local fans vwere pleased to see fleet-footed Buster Rogers back in uniform for the first time since October 4. The Hope shifty scored three touchdowns for Ihe Cals bul the real credit goes to the combine, Bell, Wells and Sutlon who ran almost at will against the Trojans forwards. Line play against Hot Springs was on a whole good although spotly al times. It seemed the Hope line could do the job when it wanted to and when the Bobcats got behind, the line came through gallantly, shaking the backs through. Undefeated Benton will be considerably, different from most of the games so far this season. Their chief offensive is strictly a passing attack which so far has proved to be one of the stale's besl. Outcome of the game will deoend Hope's ability to bat down those passes. The Bobcats have been weak in thai departmenl all season.

The big fellow, .in this case, isn't ine-busting Doc Blanchard bul Herschel (UG) Fuson, a 200-pound converted linesman who has been iperating with rather devastaling 'orce in the Army backfield this all.

Then the Paris Peace Conference, which closed Ocl. 15, made recommenda- lipns which form the basis of the Big Four's effort here to write final drafts. Discussion had hardly begun on the Italian treaty yesterday when the Trieste issued was raised, emphasizing the split between Russia .and the Western powers. The foreign ministers agreed to hear arguments from Yu.^olsavia and Italy over the kind of 'United Nations government that should be set up over the strategic port city. Molotov proposed that Yugoslavia be permitted to discuss also the question of frontiers for the Trieste area. Byrnes and Bevin objected on the ground that the Big Four previously nad agreed on the frontiers. It was finally decided that if Yugoslavia touched on the boundary issue, her spokesman would not be ruled out of order but neither would the issue be considered reopened. Molotov had plainly indicated thai the long and sometimes deadlocked slruggle over Trieste is not yet ended. o Worst Denver Continued from Page One man Bearzy, said yesterday that "UG" definitely would not be able :o play against Notre Dame this week-end. As a result, Coach Earl (Red) Blaik and his staff, already "very much worried" about Army's prospects after the Duke and West Virginia games, are faced with a major rebuilding task in the backfield. " : Fuson, who helped rip the Notre Dame line to shreds from his postal center last year, has been a key' man in the 1£)46 backfield because he has been able to operate either at right half or at fullback. Blaik's stralegy in recent games has been lo shift Blanchard irom i'ullback to half on certain plays and il was '•UG"—for ugly—who was o«ocon- stant threal lo the enemy from the other post. The only other Army back who has performed this double chore is Elwyn (Ripper) Rowan, a mere 180-pounder, who is a shiftier runner than Fuson but lacks his bruising power. In evaluating the possibilities of other Cadet backs, Army coaches could see only Rowan, a former Louisiana Stale freshman player who has seen considerable action this year. The speedy Bobby Jack Stuarl, who once galloped for Tulsa U., was in uniform for Ihe first time last Saturday, after a preseason operation, but didn't play. He hardly will be ready for full- time duly, the possible replacements are Johnny Shelley and Arnold Calinfa, a pair of none-too-big plebes who are esteemed more as prospects than as tested, dependable performers.

Theoretically, it they did stick together, a majority of vhc women political hopefuls would sweep iitto office, for Ihe qualified feminine vote in today's congressional dec ion is 1,171,000 greater vhon vho male. Fifteen women — 11 Democrats and four Republicans —are seeking election to the House of Representatives. Another Republican, Mrs. Margaret Chase Smith, has already been given her ticket to Congress by. Maine voters last September. ' In addition, 11 women arc running as minor party candidates. One of Ihe liveliest uissles between the sexes was the race be- 'ween the Republican incumbent, Rep. Joseph Martin, and his Democratic rival, Mrs. Martha Sharpe, in Massachusetts. Described in Democratic campaign literature as "small, dark and beautiful," Mrs. Sharpe would make political history if success ful in her joust to unseat the bachelor Republican i'loor leader. Mrs. Charles Tillett. head of the Democratic women's division, llat- ly predicted Mrs. Sharpe's election. Republican headquarters, how ever, saw little chance of such an ipset. Martin, publisher of the Evening Chronicle in North Atlleb'oro, has won reelection ever since 1924 when he was elected a member of .he G9th Congress. Mrs. Sharp,, of Wellesley, Mass., an internationals relief worker, is making her x"lrst| bid for. the House. Among other Democratic women nominees for Congress is Mrs, Margaret Afflis of Delphi, Ind., '1 who has campaigned against Rep. Charles A. Halleck, a possible^ j choice for Republican majority ' lender should the GOP win control. '-\ Five of the six women Demo- crnts in the last Congress and three of Ihe Republicans' five ran > for re-election, including Mrs, d Smith. Reps. Clare Boolhe Luce fi of Connecticut, and Jessie Summer " of Illinois, Republicans, and Jane > Pratt of North Carolina, Democrat l decided against running. The Democratic incumbents who campaigned include — Mrs. Maty.- T. Norton of New Jersey; Mrs.v Emily T;jft Douglas of Illinois; Mrs. Helen Gahan Douglas of California; Mrs. Chase Going Woodhouse of' Connecticut, and Mrs.' Helen Douglas Mankin-of Georgia. The Republicans seeking return are Mrs. Edith Nourse Rogers o( Massachusetts and Mrs. Frances P. Bolton of Ohio. Another Republican newcomer is Mrs. Katherine B. St. George of Tuxedo. N. Y., a first cousin of the IvUe President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Il's this: Suppose Ihe Democrals and Republicans wind up wilh 48 seals each in the Senate where the total number of seats is 36. That would split the number of seats held by each party exactly in half. Then—who'd run the Senate? The party with Ihe majorily of seals always runs the Senale. Bul in this case, if the seats were evenly divided— .Here's the background: There are 35 Senale seats—out of the tolal 96—al slake in loday's eleclions. The 96 now are divided Ihis way: Democrats, 56; Republicans, 39; and the Progressive party, 1. (Senalor Robert M. LaFolletlc of Wisconsin is Ihe progressive party seat-holder. But his term is up this year. His Progressive party in , Wiconsin has folded. And LaFol- jlelle is oul of the race. (So Ihe conlesl for his seal is belween a Democral and a Republican). Senale lerms are for six years but they are so arranged that every two years one-lhird—or 32— of the Senalors' terms expire and they have to quit or stand for reelection. This year, therefore, the usual 32 seals are open. But Uiere arc four others also 'open, due lo deaths or resignations. This brings Ihe total number o£ seats at stake to 36. (Maine, which always votes in September, already has elected a Republican Senator, so actually only 35 seats are involved today). Of those 3G seats the Republicans —who now have 39—would need 10 (a total of 49) to give Ihem a majorily over the Democrats, or PILES Hurt Like Sin! But Now I Grin Thousands change groans to grins.

The lower court had dismissed injunc- tivc proceedings brought by parents of Greek letter fraternity members seeking to restrain the Little Rock School Board from 'enforcing regulations barring the slu dents from specified school activi tics. "Effect of the representations was, whether you like it or not, we are gonig ahead with our societies. You may coerce us into signing the pledges, but you can't make us keep our promises'," the opinion said. "A situation of this kind was not contemplated by those who provide a free school system.

May Offer Pacific Isles toTrusteship Washington, Nov. 5 — (UP) — President Truman is expected soon to offer to place Pacific islands captured from Japan under United Nalions Irusleeship, bul with the proviso thai the United Stales be made sole truslee of bases yilal lo her securily, a reliable diplo- malic source said loday. Such a decision would mean lhal Mr. Truman finally had decided in favor of Ihe State Department in what has been a long and bitter interdepartmental fight. The Stale Department contends that U. N. trusteeship, with the Uniled Slales as sole trustee, would give this country ample au- Ihorily lo develop bases needed for its security in tlie Pacific. The navy, supported by the army, has fought the State Department position vigorously. The navy fears that Russia, as a member of the security council, would be able to veto proposals to fortify Pacific bases. The navy is known to want full control of Tinian, Iwo Jima, Sai- pan and Okinawa. As far back as last January, Mr. Truman said the United Stales would ask Ihe Uniled Nations for nine (a total of 48) to give them an even split with the Democrats. If the Democrats with their present 5G seats lost only seven, they'd be left with only 48 seats, or an even split with the Republicans. Under the conslilulion Ihe vice president is president of the Senate. He presides at its sessions. Since we usually have a vice president, there isn't much difficulty ( knowing who'll be Senale president. But now we don't have a vice president. Mr. Truman, who was vice president, became president of the United Stales in 1945. This threvy the Senate presidency opn. This didn't cause any trouble in Ihe Senale al Ihe time. The Demo- crals, wilh a majorily there, chose one of their own number, Senator McKellar of Tennessee, as temporary president.

Cash, Jr. Swindler Set Himself Up a Love Nest New York, Nov. 4 —(UP)—William A. Nickel, confessed swindler who cheated his employer out of nearly a million dollars, bought his wife $40,000 worth of jewelry, plus two mink coals, then set himself up In n $10-a-day love nest where he entertained other women, police reported today. The hideaway of the $100-a-weck cashier of the Mcrgenthalcr Linotype company was a hotel suite in midtown Manhattan where he entertained women lavishly, purchased Scotch whiskey by the case and gave bellboys $20 lips, police said. Evidence of Nickel's high living was uncovered by the district attorney's office yesterday .following an intensive investigation of the $832,000 swindle. . Nickel and two other persons were under arrest and two others were sought as ^accomplices Jn the gigantic hoax that ended last week when another employe became curious about why the linotype firm should pay out huge sums of money ,lo a company it never received anything irom. Nickel, who was arrested at a swank Miami Beach hotel, left for New York City in the company of detecitves today. Under arrest here were Isadorc Rappaport, an ex-convict suspected of being the brains behind the plot, and Joseph Kupsnccker, 50, also an ex-convict, who authorities said cashed $450,000 worth of the fraudulent checks. Still being sought were Jimmy Collins, 53, alias Julius Davis, a well-known Broadway character, and a man known as Joseph Milstein. Nickel's wife and 16 - year - old daughter were under protective custody at their home in Frceporl, Long Island. Use of A-Bomb Brought Up in War Trials Tokyo, Nov. 4 — (/P)— Use of the atomic bomb made obsolete the international law against attacks on noncombalant civilians, Defense Attorney William Logan argued today before the international war crimes tribunal. He was opposing introduction by the prosecution of a League of Nations report condemning Japanese bombing of noncombatants nnd a United Stales Slate Department press release supporting the league's condemnation. Tribunal President Sir William Webb overruled the defense objcc- lion wilhoVit commenting on the Uniled Slales' use of the atomic bomb al Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He said Ihe tribunal would "consider the evidence in the light of law exisling al the time." Outlawing of atomic bombs has been proposed before the United Nations. DOROTHY DIX Importance of Breakfasts NEW Begins Wednesday Double Feature "Our Hearts Were Growing Up" 2nd HIT "Masquerade in Mexico" Kupsnccker was held in $100,000 bail as a malerial witness and Rappaport was held without bail on forgery, grand larceny and conspiracy charges. His hearing was scheduled for Wednesday. Another development ?n the case was the injection of the name of screen star Glenda Farrell into Ihc invcsligalion. Miss Farrell and her son, Actor Tom .Farrell, appeared at the prosecutor's office yesterday and volunteered some "very helpful" information about the whereabouts of Collins. Police emphasized thai neither Miss Farrell nor her son were connected wilh Ihc case in any way. Nickel's love nesi was revealed lo police by Sam Simon, captain of bellboys at the Capital hotel; He said thai Nickel maintained a suite there from November, 1945, unlil a weuk ago when he lied to Miami. Aflcr his flight the hotel took over his personal effecls :"or nonpayment of his bill. They included 21 pairs of nylon Blockings, a case of Scolch and an expensive radio- phonograph. Simon described Ihe erranl cashier as "ono ot Ihe Jinesl gentlemen in Ihe holel" and said that on several occasions he saw women :n Nickel's suite. He said Nickel was a free spender and posed as president of 'Ihe Mergenlhaler Linotype firm. Aflcr oblaining a copy of Nickel's The Doctor Says: By WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M.D Written for NEA Service Tuberculosis remains a major hcallh problem even though there has been a sharp reduction in the number of cases in recent years and tuberculosis deaths have dropped 75 per cent in the last 25 years. The problem of climinaling luber- culosis is largely a matter of case- finding and the discovery of a specific drug for destroying the infec- lion. Bovine T. B. Restricted Tuberculosis is caused by a germ which attacks the lungs, although any part of Ihe "body except the hair, leclh and nails can be affected by the luberculc bacillus. A few years ago bovine (animal) tuberculosis was a serious public health meance. But the widespread use of paslcurized milk and the slaughter of infected catlle have grcally decreased Ihe number of in fcctions in man. To avoid spreading Ihc disease, lubcrculosis palicnls should enler a sanatorium for care as soon as the According to stalislics collected by the Departmenl of Agricullure, Ihe greal majorily of induslrial accidenls occur before eleven o'clock in Ihe morning, and Ihe department lays Ihe blame for Ihis on poor breakfasls. Doublless Ihis is because the average morning meal, as it is served in Ihe average home, nol only sours on the stomachs of its victims bul curdles their dispositions until it induces suicidal lendencies. There is nolhing in a slab of loasl lhal is burnt on one side and raw on the other, coupled wilh a gob of gooey cereal and a cup of dishwater coffee to make anybody drive carefully and refrain from monkey- ing with buzz-saws. Of course, this is nol according to tradition, which always represents breakfast time as the golden hour of the day when the happy family leaps from its bed, refreshed by sleep and soothed by pleas- disease is discovered. To find cases of tuberculosis, pub lie health officials use two methods. In one. a skin test (Manloux) is performed, and, 'if that is found positive, an X-ray examination of the chest is made. In the other, an X-ray examination of the chest is made without a preliminary skin test. X -ray examination of the chest is advisable whenever signs and symptoms of tuberculosis are present. Such signs are coughing. expectoration of blood - tinged sput urn. loss of weight and strength, night sweat and fear. Aged Confuse T. B. Many elderly people have tuber culosis and do not know il.consid- ant dreams, lo galherabou t the festive board. But the breakfast table that groans under its load of hot and savory dishes is just as much a myth now as Santa Glaus coming down the chimney with his pack. There simply isn't any such thing any more. Step Child of Meals Just how breakfast fell from its high estate and becamethe Stepchild of gracious living, with none so poor as to do it reverence, is a mystery. For ther.e was a time when houswives extended their finest skill upon it and it was a special compliment to be >asked to breakfast, but now half the time Mom turns over in bed and lakes nd the kids scrap their own meals, nd if anyone invites you to break- asl you have enough self - pres- rvalion to decline. We make a feast of luncheons ealily, they are not half so import- nl in Ihe domestic economy as ic poor neglected scrimped break- ast. Breakfast strikes the keynote f the day, and whelhcr a family ises from Ihe breakfast table filed with good, nutritious, .tasty, food nd is comfortable and happy, or vith ils lummy prolesling against no oulrages lhal have been put up- n it by a scrimpy meal that you vouldn't wish on a dog and with very nerve and lasle bud on edge, elermines the fate of many a lousehold. Most of the family quarrels that end in divorce, for instance, start t Ihe breakfast table. No man jjcks a fight with his wife when vis mouth is full of luscious food, cooked just the way he likes ii. No voman slaps the children, or asks "or money, or tells her husband confession from Miami police, police here expressed the opinion thai Nickel may have been the viclim of more clever swindlers who crealcd him of the greater portion of the loot SI far, police have recovered a lilllc more 'than $60,000 with the aid of Nickel's wife.

The wife who starts her husband out in the morning to his work with a good, hearty hot breakfast under his belt has given him the best weapon she can to fight with. Also, she has taken the curest preventative against his drinking too many cocktails before lunch because he is weak and faint from doesn't need a pick - up.
