Report of the master showed that when the property was offered for sale under the partition order last Monday, April 20. The highest bid, that of W. A.

The parti- tlon milt is in connection with settlement of the estate of James Hopkins who died Feb. 3,1951. Harold K. Hensley, brought into court under an attachment after he failed to appear March 5 under a citation to show cause why he shouldn't be held for contempt was released under bond ot $500 to assure appearance at a future hearing. Hensley had been cited for alleged arrearage of $137.60 in payments for support of a minor child as required by a divorce decree entered in 1951. The docket entry shows that after Hensley tendered $179 in payment of support money, an attorney fee and costs, he was aksed by the court to give evidence to purge himself of contempt for refusal to appear under the citation. On advice of his counsel, who said Hensley was unable to testify because of a mental disturbance ascribed to a War n injury, the case was continued two weeks for an exam- 1 ination of the respondent by a psychiatrist. It was a case of "Johnson and Johnson" when two divorces were granted by Judge Streeper. Myrtle L. Johnson of 2627 Krum 1 St. secured divorce from Charles Dale Johnson of Huntington Park, Calif.

West Germany Postpones Pact Ratification BONN, Germany 5»—West Germany's upper house postponed indefinitely the ratification of the treaties to rearm today but Chancellor Konrad Adenauer said he was going ahead to make the main sections law anyway. He said he would hand the treaties which create a European army with 500,000 rearmed Germans enrolled and make a peace contract with the West, to the West German president for signature despite the fact they have not been approved by the Bundesrat, or up- per house. The Bundesrat voted 20 to 18 to delay ratification until the West German Supreme Court rules on Socialist objections that the European army pact is unconstitutional. The court previously had refused to rule on the pact until he had been ratified.
