Of Texarkanc- Peace on Earth 7 at This Time Seems Bit Ironic, a Ray of Hope Shines By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst When one looks over the current newspaper headlines it does seem difficult to reconcile them with the idealism of "on earth peace, good will toward m e n" which Christinas season represents, the and if your correspondent were an un- regenerated Scrooge he probably would try to rub in that misanthropic thought. Strife and rumors of strife encircle the globe. There are half a doen situations which could develop into another world war if given half a chance. Just get out your maps and take a look: High ranking Chinese government and Communist leaders in Peiping agree that all-out civil war is imminent. That easily could be, and with about a fifth of the world's population in an upheaval the rest of the globe would be in terrible danger. French troops are engaged in fierce battles with rebels in Indo- unma. Tne situation in India 'between the rival Moslems and Hindus remains tense after much bloody communal conflict growing out of the search for a way of implementing Britain's offer of independence. The Iranian (Persian) government claims to have in hand the nect revolt in Aerbaijan province on the Soviet Union border. But the situation remains tense and explosive. Palestine is aflame, and will remain so until the Jewish- Arab conflict is adjusted. Greece charges that Moscow-dominated Yugoslavia, Albania, and Bulgaria are planning .to take away Greece Macedonia by force, and Athens welcomes the decision of the United Nations Security Council, to send a commission to investigate. Then, more dangerous than any of these other threats are the great 'differences lying between Russia and the western allies. There we have involved the Big Three upon whose shoulders rests the weight of world-peace. So goes the story, and if you columnist were suffering from a touch of Scrooge he probably would emphasize these threats, and point out that even nature is on a rampage with disasterous earthquakes and tidal wave in the orient. Still, while recognizing the very real dangers, 1 don't believe that black pessimism should be given the right of way. Our worst fears arise irom the differences between Russia and the western d e m o c r a c i e s. Three months ago Premier Stalin declared that he saw no real danger of a new war and expressed the belief that the Soviet Union and the western powers could live peaceably in the same world. This was in answer to a question by Alexander Worth. Moscow correspondent of the London Sunday Times. In secm.-'ig support of this thesis we have seen a decided softening McClellan Gives Bilbo Washington, nee, 23 —(UP) — Sen. John L. McClellan, .D., Ark., said today that Sen. Theodore G. Bilbo. TJ., Miss., shodid be "presumed innocent" by the Senate in event his right to a scat is challenged in the now Congress. Asserting that Bilbo's case merits "impartial and judicial consideration," McClellan snid the Mississippi senator had a right to be considered innocent until the charges against him have been sustained "by evidence conclusive of his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt." McClellan was an attentive spectator at hearings held by a Senate War into Investigating subcommittee charges ttiat Bilbo accepted of the Russian atlitudc in the I tlcn cash and other gifts from Mississippi war contractors whom he helped get government construe- United Nations negotiations. (Not overlooking that Soviet "ultimatum" to a U. S. naval ship to get out of Daircn harbor). President Meanwhile, Sen. Homer Ferguson, H.*, Mich., insisted on checking further into testimony at the hearings lhat a grateful Missis- L I Truman lias voiced a similar view sippi dope addict gave his life sav- and so have other Allied statesmen, including British Foreign Minister Bevin. Naturally these things don'l guarantee peace. As a mailer of Cacl il would be unwise to get categorical over the question of wlieth- or there will be war. You wouldn't want to bel -your life on it. Still, -t's mighty encouraging when Big Three personages agree that peace .s likely. Such expressions in '.hemselves foster peace. —o- SA^-DONT' XOU THINK MY CAR RUNS TScsiew IT'S BECAUSE I JUST HAD IT OVERHAULED BY MEPNER NASM CO. ANDVOU'D BE SURPRISED HOW REASONABLE IT WAS.

'31—(UP)— As Ray (Sugar) Robinson donned his new welterweight crowd today, it must have seemed double precious; /or he had gained it '"'the hard way"—in the toughest brawl of his career, after waiting uve years for a tillc shot. For six tumultuous round:; last night in Madison Square Garden, it seemed that Sugar Ray's long wait might be climaxed by a knockout defeat instead o[ a crowning victory. But he rose irom the canvas, and he came from behind, to win the unanimous 15-round do- cision over dangerous Tommy Bell in their battln -nr the v;u:at' >il'e.

The widow of the 02-year-old corgin governor-elect, who was to nave been inaugurated for ti fourth term three weeks irom tomorrow, made the decision. She said her husband had always wanted to be buried next to the grave of his staunch friend, Morris Cameron. funeral services were u> be conducted in Talmadgc'.s home church .the McHae Baptist church. The body of the colorful campaigner will be brought to tlii.s southeast Georgia town at the head of a procession of cars which was to leave Atlanta at 3 a. m. Hundreds of state political leaders, five former Georgia gover- nors, and members of the slate's congressional delegation were to be in the funeral entourage which will whirl over highways often traced by Tnlmadgc campaign motorcades. Today there was no triumphant slops in the "small towns" ulorig the way, no crowd-drawing stump speeches punctuated with the shrill "You tell 'em Gene." No snapping red galluses. The town (if Mcllac already is planning to erect a monument to the tyrbulcnl politician who died Saturday of cirrhosis of the liver in an Atlanta hospital. It was here 21 years ago that Tnlmadgc, known to thousands of Georgians as "Ol 1 Gene", began his amazing career. Tclfair county commissioners davc approved placing the monument on the courthouse square. The type of monument has not been decided, but officials said "it will be in keeping with his great stature." Not many miles away is the big brick Talmadgc home.with its tall white columns, sprawled on winding Sugar Crock from which the former country lawyer drew his nickname, "Sage of Sugar Creek." The old campaigner, who was proud of the crowds attracted by his speeches, drew an estimated 11,000 of those whom he called It's easy to fix this . .

Uncounted thousands lined the sidewalks bordering the ilullblock occupied by the aged state house. Thev kept coming throughout the sunny afternoon. The once-robust Talmadgc lay in a bronze-colored, copper casket in Ihe high-domed rotunda of the capital. His black horn-rimmed spectacles, almost as much a trade mark as his red suspenders, were in place .He wore a double-breasted blue suit. His hands were at his sides. Uealli little softened the strong lines of the craggy, weather-beaten face. But old timers who loved him whispered, "That's him." They found it hard to believe the man who had lived so vividly was dead. o Jeep in Shade of German Tree Nuernberg—(AP)—One American civilian here found the solution to the local wood shortage when he wanted a local body maker to construct a station wagon body for his newly acquired jeep. Iffj went out and bought a tree. The body maker was willing to make the body and install comfortable leather scats—with payment to be made in cigarees, candy, chocolate, coffee and fruit juice but ho had no lumber.
