' —— o r Highway Links Algiers to Cape Johannesburg—When automobiles and gasoline flow freely again the new Africa Highway from Algiers to'Cape Town will become a popular tourist route. From South-Africa, the road runs through the Rhodesias and French Equatorial Africa to Lake Chad, thence west to Kana in Nigeria and then almost due north across the Sahara to Algiers. The new road across the desert is composed of a sand track beaten into a road by the passage of hundreds of vehicles of the Free French Army which marched from Dakar to Tunis to take part in the final drive that threw the Nazis out of Africa. The road is sign - posted throughout its length, and light towers gliide the motorist at night.

Lewis Files New Appeal Question With High Court i Washington, Dec. 23 —(/P)—John j L .Lewis and the United Mine Workers today filed with the supreme court a new appeal questioning the validity of the preliminary injunction issued during the recent soft coal strike. In earlier petitions, Lewis and the union questioned the authority of U. S. District Judge T. Akin Goldsborough lo issue temporary restraining orders. It was for violation of the retraining orders that the mine .eader and the union were held in contempt of court and were fined $3,510,000. The orders directed them to keep the mines going pending a judicial ruling on the legal issue involved. The preliminary injunction replaced the restraining order. The supreme court already has agreed to rule on the first appeals filed and has set Jan. 14 for hear ing arguments. o- No Political Portent We Hope GOOD NEIGHBORS Palmyra, 111.. Dec.

W«thburr» Bilbo VA Hospital Appeals for Nurses Senator Elmer Thomas, Oklahoma Democrat, told reporters in Washington yesterday he had heard nothing in the Bilbo investigation which would lead him to believe the Mississippi senator would be unseated. "I've been in loo many campaigns," the AP quotes Thomas as saying. "The Bilbo problem is a common problem to 11 or 12 Southern states, and on this problem they'll stand together. "If Bilbo were unsealed by the senate, it is my considered opinion that he would be re-elected by Mis- sippians without opposition." I hope the effect of all this finally soaks through the heads of the Northern magazines—chief among them being Life—who ridiculed Mississippi into actually electing the .very man the magazines said Star WEATHfcR FORECAST Arkansas: Mostly cloudy this aft- 1 ernoon, tonight and Saturday; occasional light rain tonight and in south portion Saturday; colder Saturday "and in northwest and extreme north portions tonight. 48TH YEAR: VOL, 48—NO. 63 Slar of Hope, 1B99; Pros'-. 1927 Consolidated January 18. 1929. HOPE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, DECEMBER, 27, 1946 —Means Newspaper Enterprise Asi'n. AP)— Means Associated Press PRICE 5c COPY ought lo be defeated. The daily press of Mississippi i> fought Bilbo from start to finish. But what can the home press do when outside magazines stupidly persist in giving a dcmogogue like Bilbo the very ammunition he needs lo win on tho stump? When Northern magazines • attempted to come into the Mississippi campaign picture they violaled the first rule of common sense. It was like — Interfering in a quarrel between a man and his wife. Or, like a man from Manhattan telling Brooklyn fans what's wrong with the Dodgers. In cither case you'd get your cars pinned back for talking when you should have been listening. And Mississippi elected Bilbo. Dr. Harold W. Sterling, manager of the Veterans Administration Hospital at North Little Rock, has written this newspaper an appeal for more nurses. Says Dr. Sterling: "The shortage of nurses is so acute that it is preventing the full utilization of existing hospital facilities. "One principle cause, I believe, is the unfortunate fact that nursing as a profession has in the past acquired the reputation of a thankless job, with long hours and low pay, and little other reward except a sense of personal satisfaction to Many Prices Tumble in Larger Cities By The Associated Press Prices for many cost of living items tumbled suddenly yesterday in major cities throughout the nation, led by a sharp break in the! New York and Chicago wholesale butter markets. The decline in the butter wholesale prices brought an immediate drop of nine lo 10 cents a pound in some ot the principal chain stores in the East. Egg prices likewise dropped sharply In a number of places, )ed by a wholesale decline of more than five cents a dozen in New York, and reductions in some food items were reported in New York, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Kansas City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. At the same time, a cross-country survey by the Associated Press showed that many of the big'dc partmcnl stores in major Tugs Presidential Finger had slashed some clothing cities prices those rare individuals with an overwhelming desire to serve "Another cause is that by from one-third lo more than 50 percent in an outbreak of post- Christmas and year-end sales. Still unsettled, however, was whether the price drops were temporary or whether many of them would continue to hold or even extend their decline. It was learned that in Chicago, retailers' associations there now were looking tor pronounced general reductions in food prices in February and have been urging their members to get rid of their present slocks. On the butter market , prices concededly had been maintained at an artifically high level in New York. When this support was withdrawn, prices fell by from one to 10 cents i\ pound and from two to six cents in Chicago. The Dairymen's League Cooperative Association removed some of the mystery surrounding the break in New York, where charges of "rigging" had been heard.

By JAMES THRASHER Message From Palestine, 1946 Nineteen hundred and forty-six years ago there came from Palestine a message of love and joy un- cqualcd in history, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will loward men." This year, as a world despcralely in need of cheer prepares once again lo celc- bralc Ihe birlh in a lowly stable of • Bethlehem of Christ the Lord, Savior of mankind, there comes from Palestine another, and lolally different, message. This is a message of hatred and sorrow, of bloodshed and ill will, II comes from Jew and Arab alike. And it is particularly tragic because it intensifies the human suffering which undeniably exists in that cradle of many religions. Holy Land lo peoples of divergent faiths. Jews and Arabs in Palestine fight not only one another, but constituted government authority as well. Perhaps because Ihe British rulers now appear to, favor Arab over Jew, the Jewish terrorist underground has blown up buildings bridges, railroads, taken many lives, cached arms and ammunition in preparation for semi-open warfare—all in a vain efforl to impose its will through carnage. These terrorists would be unworthy ot the slighlest sympathy, did they not aim at the correction of an aclmitcd evil. Jews who were Ihe firsl viclims of Nazi brutality do wander Europe today, as displaced persons, is crying need of the re- luge Palestine can offer them; that Palestinian sanctuary has been denied them; Iheir present agony is indeed the responsibility of the en lire civilized' world. Because more fortunate peoples Ihis past year have ignored these pathetically innocent sufferers, it is by no means surprising lhat some of Ihosc Jews who already have reached Ihe Promised Land should seek to correct the injuslice by force. But, as always, violence has dispelled sympathy. The murder of British soldiers and the slaughter of equally blameless civilians certainly cannot be countenanced. Not even the truesl friends of the Jew- isn oppressed can stomach Ihe acls of would-be Jewish oppressors. And so, as day after day the press has carried reports of additional outrages by the underground, the public demand for an improvement of the Jewish lot has been diluted by honest misgivings. A few days ago, however, Vaad Leumi, Uic Jewish national council, was' Joined by Zionist leaders and even' by representatives of the Ha- ganah underground army in a denunciation of Jewish terrorists.

There are now 31 dry or partially dry counties in Arkansas. The senator has not decided whether lie would place control of sales menl under the revenue dcparl- or under a separate stale agency. "It appears that the revenue de- parlmcnl hasn't done too good « job of regulating liquor," he asserted.
