Officers said Miss Barbara Harper, 23, found the body in the hallway next door to Devenney'e residence and called police. Police said Miss Harper told them she shared Devenney's apartment, and when she was returning from an errand she heard a shot next door, where she investigated and found the body. Devenney was clutching a gun in his hand when officers arrived. Police arrested and booked Devenney last Aug. 6 on narcotics charges, and at the time one official called him "the biggest single seller of marijuana in the French Quarter."

(AP)-Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it. And everyone talks about good government, but no one does anything about it either. This somewhat cynical expression may have been true at one time in Louisiana, but it isn't true When this occurs, it will be the second retirement for the genial, 56-year-old Rogers. He tried it a number of years ago, at the age of 40, bat could not stand the inactivity.

It was in the serv- happiness. ("The father I move away from my Grand Cane farm, the more I want to come back," he said.) It has cost him something even more important, a degree of his health. For the first time in his life he is under the continual care of a physician. And for what, ask his friends. Why? "Well, I finally decided I must be Joe Blow," answers Rogers, explaining: "For years I have discussed good government from all over. It's a strange thing. Everyone is in favor of it. And yet, we haven't had good government in Louisiana in my lifetime. "I wondered about this. I wondered why we couldn't have good government if everyone wants it. ( And I decided the reason we don't i have it is because everyone seems ice station business that he found the answer to a farmboy's poverty: Work hard, do things a little differently, and get rich. By the time the war broke out in the early forties, Rogers had become the head of a chain of service stations, g a r a g e s and parking lots. He had also been married—to Miss Josephine Mann, a Smith College graduate from Maine whom he met while she was in Baton Rouge visiting an old college roommate. Then the war, and for Rdgers a four-year tour of duty with the Air Force, being discharged as a lieutenant colonel. On his return to Baton Rouge, he sold his properties and "retired" to Grand Cane.

So, I decided I must be Joe now included daughters JoAnn and Blow." Be he "Joe Blow" or Johnny Rogers, he has already accomplished much in his endeavor. His dogged efforts to pass a Code of Ethics bill for state officials failed to pass but succeeded In causing an uproar sufficient to shake the granite walls of the state Capitol. His anti-deadhead bill also was killed, but lived long enough to thoroughly frighten a number of department heads. Almost suddenly he has become known as a corruption fighter. His friends have drawn closer behind him. He has become a leader, ^ with a real, avid party of followers shouting conservatism and good government. He has become a 'news figure. This is the thing that rankles his political enemies—and he has Genie, became farmers, square dancers and active residents of the small DeSoto town. It wasn't long before the representative from his district died, and a group of square-dancing friends asked Rogers to run. That was in 1950; in 1952 he entered the senatorial race and has run every time since then. He has never even had a runoff, winning each time in the first primary. His political philosophy soon became apparent. As a businessman, he knew of no other way to run the state government than by businessmen's practices. "But I haven't found a governor yet who is ready to do this," he commented. "Kennon wasn't. Long wasn't. And Jimmie Davis isn't." Gov. Davis brought about what his span 01 political • " i t • t i life. They point to "this coJcert of! greatest mistakes activity and advance their own' : su PP OI> t ed Jimmie Davis, theory. jhe said.
