WILD SUMMIT Ginners to Discuss Pink Bowl Worm (AP) — The Arkansas - Missouri Cotton Giners Assn. meets here today with Arkansas' campaign against the pink bollworm high on the agenda for discussion. The discovery of i.he pest :n northeast Arkansas may make statewide regulations necessary. It had previously been confined to the southwestern part cf the state. ,' Regulations for control of the , pink bollworm will be into effect " by the Arkansas Plant .-,B.bard. They could include trash destruction. , fumigation of seed and other prac- ,. tices costly to ganners. i., -r Across The Counter $^',7.J:red,q.

He tells Johnny Hock that he has come back to clear himself. He sends Johnny aft e r Judge Carmody and goes for Sheriff Kllnt Hyatt himself. i i Chapter II i Laurie Benedict. He'd come to believe that the past year oC ; hardship and danger and bitter- Iness had knocked all capacity for sentiment and softer emotion • out of htm, and no-w, to Cind oth- i erwise, gave him a stir of uease. ; He paused for another careful j look around. Beside him lifted the ; stairs to the wide front gallery ; and main floor of the courthouse. i Directly at hand a door opened I into a hallway which ran the full length of the basement to the jail in the rear. A dozen f.«et along the hall a side door marked the : office of sheriff, and this was the 1 door Yeager sought and turned ; through. Surrounded by silence he 1 felt his way to a far corner an-1 | there hunkered down. He laid Johnny Hock's gun on the floor beside him and settled himself to : the wait. j Yeager missed the sound of ap- 1 proach until footsteps were in the j hall and close to the door of the I office. Swiftly and silently he \ scooped up the gun and pushed erect. A man came into the> room, coughing drily. A cigar{s lighted tip was a ruby eye in the blackness and the breath of it a swift- spreading acridity. A. match snapped and a lamp chimney e'himed softly when lifted from its metal bracket. The wick flamed, steadied and .grew strong as the chimney was replaced. In the revealing glow, Sheriff Klint Hyatt stood a iank. round- shouldered man, with a face that was long and tight drawn, and like his small, bleached eyes, full of a sour man's habitual calculating skepticism. For a moment he stood, unaware of another presence in the room. Then he caught' the lean shadow of Gil Yeager in the far corner and .he. came swiftly around. Yeager put Johnny Hook's gun on him. "Just as you arts, Hyatt!" Recognition flared In Hyatt's eyes and surprise held him as Yeaser moved in to lift away his shoulder gun. This, Yeagev dropped on the floor ^and* kicked under the desk.; ThenJ'he, tioped a directing head. . •. . . Hyatt spoke with nasal thinness, 'I don't know what you're figuring on, Yeager, but whatever it is, you can't get away with it, I'm putting! you under arrest and taking your gun." A sudden twisting tightened Yeagers lips and his eyes went smoky dark. He cuffed aside Hyatt's reaching hand and jammed the open palm of his own loft hard irito Hyatt's face, ruining his cigar and snapping back his head. There was enough behind the half-blow, half-push to spin Hyatt and drop him into the desk phair, where he stayed, half dazed, a faint stain of cri;nson seeping across his h'p. "Maybe you understand now Hyatt, You'd better, because for the past year I've been living like a pariah, skulking in dark corners and out in the brush,, sleeping with one eye open like any other hunted animal. Yeah, I've had a pretty rough year, Hyatt, because of you and pthers like you, and if you think it sweelenec) me up where you're concerned, you couldn't be further wrong. So, get this! { didn't come back to let you lock me up again, 1 came back to reclaim 3 •number of things that are mine,-- anci whatever I have to do to make good those claims — that I' Will do!" He locked a hand in Klint H.y- of Gil Yeager in the far corner R«?g!ty go, f9S§, M«in§|.» Hope, Ark, alt's shirt front and hauled him erect. "You and me, we're off to Johnny Hock's office — ,by the back way. Kill that light!" Sour skeptic that he was, Klint Hyatt was no coward. Neither, however, was he a fool. So now, as he met the boring impact of Gil Yeager's bitter rega'rd and found in it no slightest trace of bluff or mercy, he bocd to the inevitable. Faubus Offers Continued From Page ilting find little solace in public affaii-s these days. The fehde straddle!-) soohcr or later, 'is toppled from ills perch to join one force or the other, or else crawl away and disappear into the brush, "We must win this struggle for constitutional government. \Ve must preserve the proeloiu rights wo have so long enjoyed, To yield to-the foi'Ces of centralized government, will lead ultimately to dictatorship," LITTLE ROCK (AP) — , Gov,. Orval E. Faubus today prepared to take a hear unprecedented third • term oath as Arkansas' chief executive, and then lay down his legislative program to the 62nd General Assembly. The inaugural address, before a; joint session of the Legislature which convened yesterday, was set for 11 a.m. Faubus, who emerged during' his second two-year term as an unwavering foe ot school integration, did not disclose his legislative plans in advance of today's speech. But in recent weeks, he had indicated that he. would'seek: Three nsW segregation laws to bolster the state's arsenal ih its fight against federal. integration pressure. The establishment of a State Department of Agriculture to centralize the state's various farm programs. A long-range bunding program for the state. If the 1959 Legislature fallows the example of that body twn years ago and in last year's anli-integra Judge Terence Carmody was a waspy little man whose hea_d, because of the shaggy , mane of white hair covering it, appeared too large for his body. His face was lined and leathery, gnomci- like, but from beneath a pair of frosty brows a pair of flashing, electric-blue eyes peered out, to challenge all the injustice in the world. Crocl\ety, and of short patience, he ne'ver-the-less was a completely sound and fair man. To anyone hearing it for the first time his voice was startling, rolling rich and deep as it did out that meager body. A wiCe- beating Indian who once stood in Terence Carmody's court and received a highly vitriolic • verbal chastisement, was later heard to mumble awedly ahout "big thunder in small cloud." • • •At Yeager's knock; J .o h n n y Hock opened the door and Yeager herded his man through. Judge Carmody had perched himself on a corner of Johnny Hock's desk, but now, letting out a startled growl, he. slid free of the desk and stood ' with his fee$ spread and his shaggy head thrust forward. He boomed indignant demand. "Sherifi Hyatt, who is this man What's he -doing with that gun" ; • It was Yeagcr Who answered. "I'm'asking you-to bear with me, Judge. There's a great deal at stake. This may look a little irregular, but—" "Irregullar!' ex-ploded the Judge. "That, sir, is' a mild word to explain such Who are you'- an exhibition. "The name is Gil Yeagcr." '.Yeager, . eh!' 1 -snapped the Judge. "In the records, of my court it is written '-that- a man of such name broke ''jail arid fled justice." ; "I am that man;" admitted Yeager steadily. "But it was injustice I fled, not "justice.' Judge Carmody '.wasn't listen* mg. The fiery little jurist had turned on Johnny • Hock; and was lashing at him furiously. "So this, is why, ypu ; brought me down here, John Hock) '. '• • Towering above- him, -Johnny Hock dropped .g soothing hand on ( the -judge's shoulder.

While many lawmakers sucmed ready to rubber-stamp any Faubus anti-integration proposals, n legislative battle over the state's reassessment program appeared in the offing. ,. (V Bills tossed into the hoppar yes- , terday included on by Rep. N, B. Murphy of Ashley County to repeal the controversial 1955 law. Murphy's bill would abolish the Arkansas Assessment Co-ordination Department and turn some oC its duties over- to. a proposed tax division ot the Public .Service Coijv rnission.
