The railroads and tho railroad unions also conductnd a spirited campaign over repeal of the Full Crew Laws. The laws caused feather-bedding and thus were cosily and unnecessary, the railroads said. But, said the unions, the number ot brakcman required under the laws were needed for safety 1 and, they added, Ihe railroads had said nothing about reducing rales if the number was cut.

A coolness had been noted between Gov. Faubus and Hays. Last September, at the height of the Central High School integration crisis here, Hays had • sought la act as a mediator between tho governor and President i Eisenhower. Faubus intimated, later that the congressman wanted him to surrender his position in the federal- state power struggle. Hays denied this. Thus, the brief but bitter Fifth District contest ccmmanded interest in and out of Arkansas, In a recorded elccion-ovc statement, on television- here, Gov. J P. Colcman of Mississippi endorsed Hays. Coleman snid-lhc South needed Hays' experience and expressed hopes thai the Fifth District would not "stampede,'' Reprint e d from Newsprint Facts; photo by A. Devaney, Inc.,- tt.

Woodsmen hale porcupines and say lhat publishers should, too, because the quilled animals destroy trees which are part of the potential newsprint supply. One porcupine can kill 2,000 trees in tho course of a year, it is claimed, including seedling and ntaturer spccimenls. If even half are pulpwood trees, the "raw. material-for more than 50 tons of'newsprint is lost. Porky feeds on the juicy inner bark. Unfortunately, he has smorgasbord habits. That is, instead of confining his repast to one or two trees which have enough bark to satisfy him; he nibbles here' and there on many-'Irees. Frequently he cats his way all around a trunk, girdling and killing the tree, and then goes on to do the ?amc lo several olhers. There is an atithen- licated record of one porcupine killing 39 seedlings, aiicl gnawiiv; 32 other trees m one six-day period While most predators, give the Singer's Wife is Much BtHer LOS AWGELfi§ (AP) — Singer Allan Jones' heiress wife is re- jpprled mueh improved at the UCLA Medical Center.

English Pubs Pick o Pin-Up Boy England (AP) — Irishman James MbCormack today bc> c,uilled rodents a wide borth, bobcats and lynxes d)no an liicm regularly and thus earn the gritltude of north woods foresters. The cats have a system. With 'one lightning paw stroke to the head they stun the porcupine 'md then roll him over and make the kill via the soft undorparls. Fisher-s Also Sklllfut •Fishers, fox » sized weasel - like animals, are also adept al this procedure. Bui they are not as important a factor in keeping down Ihe porcupine population because fisher fur brings high prices and the animals are not very numerous as a result. Venerated by Ihe Indians and Ihe subject of many of their fables, fishers hftve some Unique qualities. One of them is thai porcupine quills do nol feslcr in their flesh, for some unknown reason. The quills do not even seem lo penetrate very far, mostly just 'piercing the skin. As if they know they have a certain immunity, fishers are more carefree in attacking a porcupine than the cats. Lynxes and bobcats approach their prey will) a great deal more respect for the quills and often acquire a few despite the speed and power of their attack. When they miscalculate they suffer cruelly. In Ihe 1947 report of the Ontario Royal Commissioner on Forestry, ae said of porcupines: "They remove very considerable areas of bark from trees, in many .nstances killing them by girdling, but in any event so weakening them that they are a prey to dis- .ease. During the past season I: have seen tens of thousands of trees, mostly jackpine, so .damaged and .1 would estimate thai the total numbers affected throughout 'the province must therefore amount lo millions. This constitutes a very serious loss and ; I have not ibeen: a'ble to discover any specific compensating factor;" Killing ^Encouraged The .Commission -then -recom- , mended "thatfor a few year's, the killing of porcupines~bc encouraged and that research be carried on, in the meantime, to ascertain the minimum population needed." It is not known whether this rescarlR was conclusive, the woodsmen feel that the porcupines have decided among themselves what the minimum porcupine population should came Ihe pifi-Xip' boy of 4io pubs, clubs', Hotels and ild.U6l stofes.
