The Soviet announcement seemed designed to point that up, saying that Malenkov and others ousted from top posts were not being persecuted were given "'every opportunity" - to express their views and were ftemoved in "the most democratic (way) possible." What seems to be .significant about the Khrushchev group's decision on Malenkov'a future is that he is being given another' job, however unimportant, and he is not being executed. The experts relate this to the general line of Khrushchev's policy, which seems to require a belief on the part of. the Soviet people generally that the penalty for error in the Soviet Union will no longer be excessive—tht failure .will not mean death. Such a belief is considered especially important on the part of the thousands of lower level leaders, industrial managers and technicians. This is regarded as tremendously important to Khrushchev's whole effort to inspire the country to new peaks of industrial and agricultural production by means which call essentially for voluntary rather than for forced labor. Most officials here Uiink that if Krushchev can make his methods work he may in the long run prove to. be a very formidable foe for the free .nations to deal with. However, it is doubtful whether he can alter the basic conditions of the political system within which he must:work. As the latest top-level shakeup has shown, this system lacks flexibility for fundamental differences'over policy and personality issues.

Store Keeper Busy Watching for Fires BALTIMORE (JV-A fire lured a Gay. Street merchant from his store Wednesday and a fire brought him right back again. The cause of his quick return, accompanied by firemen, was a cigarette he left burning on a counter—when he ran outside to watch a fire a block away. Pioneer Justice Hard in 'The State of Franklin' By HAL BOYLE GATLINBURG, Tenn. 1*1 — Few Americans today are familiar with a bizarre period on the frontier when Franklin, the "lost state," almost became the 14th star in the U.S. flag. It is told here nightly to thousands of tourists who attend "Chucky Jack," an outdoor drama written by Kermit Hunter, one of the most successful authors of this type of pioneer sagas. These dramas, which afford a painless way to learn history while cooling off under the stars, are spreading in popularity throughout America, and "Chucky Jack" is among the best. The cast of 92 unites the talents of Broadway professionals, college drama students, and local residents. The role of Thomas Jefferson, for example is played by Richard Bunting, chef and manager of the new Gatlinburg Inn Restaurant, who formerly was a Broadway dancer. "Chucky Jack" is built around the fabled exploits of John Sevier, a frontiersman who became known as the "Father of Tennessee." Less well known nationally than other sons of "the Volunteer State" such as Davy Crockett, Andrew Jackson and Sam Houston, he is a regional hero here and played a key role in the America's early westward expansion. A veteran of King's Mountain and other Revolutionary War engagements, Sevier fought 32 battles with the Cherokee and Creek Indians to open for settlement the lands beyond the Great Smoky Mountains. Angered at lack of what he considered proper military support in these campaigns from the North Carolina Legislature, Sevier joined the settlers in a revolt to set up "The State of Franklin." He became its first governor. This colorful experiment in pioneer self-rule lasted from 1785 to 1788, when the "State of Franklin" collapsed in a state of chaos. Sevier was charged with treason by North Carolina, but later served in its Legislature, the national Congress, and became the first governor of Tennessee, when it was admitted to the federal union as the 16th state. He engaged in a bitter personal feud with Andrew Jackson and died in 1815 at the age of 70. While it lasted, the short-lived State of Franklin fought hard to preserve its dignity as a legal body. One man accused of contempt of court was fined 15,000 pounds (British money terms were still in use) the polite equivalent of a life sentence, since currency was scarce on the frontier. The court, under Sevier, also dealt stern justice. Here is the ruling against a man convicted as a horse thief: "It is therefore ordered that the said Elias Pybourne be confined in the publick pillory one hour . . . that he have, both his ears nailed to the pillory and severed from his head . . . that he receive at the publick whipping post 39 lashes yell laid on . . and be branded on the right cheek with the letter 'H* and on the left cheek with the letter T . . ." This may seem like unduly rough punishment. But it had its results. Even today you'll'find very few horse thieves in Tennes-. see, the state "Chucky Jack" did so much to found Probe New Sports Firm At Davenport DAVENPORT tifc-Scott County and state officials had under scrutiny Thursday the question of Whether any business that furnishes odds on sports events can legally operated in Iowa. The official activity centered around Leo Hirgchfield, 60, whosa firm of Athletic Publications Inc. has operated' 1 " Minneapolis for the last 25 years. It became 'known Wednesday that Hirschfield had opened an office in the Schmidt Building in downtown Davenport and Sheriff Pete W11 dm ah said it was equipped with five telephones, a telegraph facility and five employ­ es, v' V; . Wildman called on Hirschfield after receiving a call from the Statehouse in Des Moines. He said Hirschfield went voluntarily to the office of County Attorney Martin Leir to answer questions. This was after newspaper; reports were published in Minneapolis that Hirschfield had shifted his v odds-making operations from ..Minneapolis to Davenport. ; Hirschfield told the county, officials that his operation is "strictly legitimate and in; no way constitute/ gambling." And Leir said he volunteered the information that he has no clients for his service in Iowa. The sheriff said Hirschfield was "very cooperative." Wildman added that he took signed statements from him and had submitted them to Leir's office, to the Iowa Bureau of Criminal Investigation and to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Leir then announced that he will confer with Atty. Gen. Norman Erbe in Des Moines to get an opinion, on whether any Raws are being violated and said, "We don't have the whole story on it yet;" The county attorney expressed belief that Hirschfield must have consulted lawyers before moving to Davenport. "He certainly wouldn't have come in here cold," Leir. said. The county attorney continued: "We're just checking to see what it's all about. He says he gathers information on gambling odds for subscribers who want it. "He said this information is not dispensed to anyone in Iowa, n s hard to say whether charges will be filed—it's so close to the line." The officials said that Hirschfield gave no. reason for moving his operation to Davenport. It was reported that he is keeping his sports dope sheet publishing business in Minneapolis. Hirschfield was a government witness in a federal grand jury investigation early this year of what the government described as a gambling ring, in Minnesota with nationwide connections. At Minneapolis U.S. Dist Atty. George MacKinnon said that Hirschfield had never been charged with anything relating to gambling. Gov. Herschel Loveless said in Des Moines Wednesday he had instructed the Iowa attorney general's office to check on the legality of Hirschfield's operations here. Sheriff Wildman said he called on Hirschfield after he had received a call from R. W. Nebergall, head of the Iowa Bureau of Criminal Investigation. 11-Year-old Bride Returned to Parents MUNFORD, Tenn.
