Little Rock may be threatened. Those were the hoi topics of conversation D8 years ago. in July Of 1863. Fresh of the minds of Arkansas were the siege of Vicksburg and I he unsuccessful attempt to rout the federals from ijWcna. TJoth occurred on July 4, 18G3 VickslHii-g, besieged for months, finally gave in even as a Confederate force under Gen. T. II Holmes moved against Helena with the idea of forcing Union forces to divert troops from the bclcagurcd Mississippi city. The Helena attack was opposed by Gen. Slreling Price, who latet y^n fame for a raid into Mis souri. But Holmes overruled him "This is my fight," Holmes wrote Price. "I intend to attack Helena immediately and capture the place jf possible. If I succeed J want the glory. If I fail, I am willing to bear the odium." The march on Helena began June 22 at Jacksonporl, ueai Newport. Nearly 5,000 Confederate troops were assembled for the jflsault. But conditions were unfavorable from the start. Mud and water covered the 00-mile route. In places soldiers waded waist deep and dragged wagons through swamps or lowlands. Swollen streams had to be crossed on makeshift bridges. It took 12 days to reach the Helena area. But by July 3 the Jycc was in position four miles from Helena. Price still opposed Ihe attack but again was overruled by Holmes. Holmes directed Price's command to assault the center fort of three which guarded Helena, Gen. J. S. Marmaduke was to hit the northern fort, Gen. James F. Fagan the southern one. The attacks began at daylight '"ice's troops charge with fixed bayonets and overran the federals. But heavy artillery fire held back Fagan, and Manna- duke's force also failed. Holmes then tried to assault the southern fort from the rear, but gunboat fire smashed this advance.

Six hundred Confederates were lost in the 1 bailie—killed or wounded. Another 400 were prisoners when Holmes began the march back toward Little Jiuck. The federal commander at Helena, Gen. Samuel K. Curtis, (hen sent. Gen. Frederick S t e e I e against Litile Hock. Steele left Helena about a month after the Confederate defeat. Skirmishes along the way held up his advance temporarily, but on Sept. JO, HMi3, after one final clash, his troops moved into Little Rock. Price, a veteran of the Confederate victory at Pea Ridge March 7, Ji)(52, in which Curtis was the federal commander, succeeded Holmes in command. Fagati was Price's second in command in the last major activity in Arkansas, Legislators Give Views on Session LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Three legislators today gave Gov. Orviil E. Faubus their views on a forthcoming special session and one of them, Rep. Paul Van Daisem of the famed aid into Missouri. It began in southwest Arkansas and reached Pilot Knob, Mo., before a major engagement. But instead of proceeding to St. Louis, Price turned west and finally at Marais dcs Cygncs, Kans., was beaten and forced to retire to Arkansas. • SALUTE TO HOPE'S INDEPENDENT GROCERS • SLEEP BETTER i Drink Botden's Buttermilk at Night and sleeping's as Easy as 1-2-3 Officiols See Russia, China Rift iy JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (API-Top U.S. officials were reported convinced today that a serious dispute has broken out again between Die leaders o fthc two greatest Communist powers, Russia and lied China. The argument could hnvc a profound impact on Soviet handling., of East-West crisis issues, particularly Berlin and Laos. Western authorities arc trying to get at the real facts of the controversy and thus establish n basis for judging what its «ffcct on future Sino-Sovicl policies may be. The most authentic evidence of the quarrel known to U.S. State Department experts is the fact that the Soviet leadership sent ,-i high-level delegation to Ulan Bator Jast week to represent Moscow at (he Hlh anniversary of the Mongolian Communist parly. But Soviet Premier Khrushchev, at Ihe same lime, virtually ignored the far more important -loth anniversary of the Chinese Communist party. This snub, U.S. experts say, Is unmistakable proof if very severe differences between Moscow and Pciping. The cause of Hie current argument is nol known, but il is assumed lo be along the familiar lines of recent years—the Hod Chinese favoring tough, expansionist policies for international Communism, with a risk of nuclear war; the Russians favoring a more caul ions policy under tho label of "peaceful co-cxistenco" Top Kennedy administration officials were deeply interested in an article published in Ihe Times in London last Sunday. This article by Isaac Dcutscher, a longtime student of Soviet affairs, reported that Khrushchev had clr- culaled among foreign Communist parlies a loiter denouncing Red Chinese policies. In Dctilscher's arlicle, it was reported th.il Khrushchev'had accused (he Red Chinese Communists under Mao Tse-Tuug of violating an international Communist agreement, made last Novembci at. Moscow, which represented a compromise on expansionist policies between Soviet and Red Chi iic.se atliliifles. .Highly placed officials said today Ihe United Slates had mi independent evidence lo confirm the existence of such a Khrushchev massage. Obviously efforts are being made to obtain a copy of the document if it exists, officials, said. But in high quarters here there was considerable skepticism today about the reported document. AMA Against Authority of U. S. Agency WASHINGTON (AP) - The American Medical Association vigorously protested loday agians! giving a government agency authority lo pass on (he usefulness of drugs. It said the effect of this provi-. ion in the drug industry anli- •usl act introduced by Sen. Estes iofauver, U-Tcnn., would be "to mil research, the marketing of rugs, and the exercise of diserc- ion by Ihe medical profession." The AMA's position was set orth by Dr. Hugh 11. llusscy, Jr., f Washington, chairman of its oard of trustees, at Hie start of carings on Ihe legislation by the enale Anti-trust and Monopoly .ibcommittec. Kefmiver, Ihe subcommittee hainvuin, said in an opening latcment that the public's pa- Jence "wilh price-gouging in rugs is wearing Ihiii" and that lie people will demand direct gov- Tinciil controls unless Congress icts along what he termed Ihe 'relatively moderate" lines pro- uised in his bill. Kefauver siid his bill would on- ourage competition and thus re- luce medicine prices without esorling lo dircel federal control ivcr drug prices.

Medical researchers recently turned up cases of people, who made themselves drunk hy imbibing too much water. They get the same symptoms as people who have too much alcohol. And for the same reason. The water dilutes the blood so that less oxygen is carried to the brain. Why are there compulsive water drinkers? Probably for the same psychological reasons we have alcoholics, © Kncyclopedia Brllnnnlca by the subcommittee. Suggests UN Monitor U. S.
