"-'"b m;uui in;, uuiuui in 1926 was not long in forming. Previously, although there had been .much oratory, personal attacks and in some counUes phe- haghng, campaigns for governor were relatively inexpensive and rather slow-moving affairs. . T om Terral was in his clement with that sort of race to run; but even the second-term magic tailed lo work for him when in 1926 Iho stream-lined, heavily financed type of campaign was inlroduccd lo Arkansas. Professional advertising men were put to work; advertising became ilamboyant, sharp, clever in its appeal. It was not a battle of personalities alone any longer CounUes with heavy road debts wanted relief; those that had not gone into debt were crying for I ORQS. An appeal that would reach both was utilized to advantage by Gov- c ™°r Terral's oponent, the late Judge John E. Martmeau, who was elecied, and who, in 1927, delivered on his campaign pledges with the road program out of wnich ihc state derived both highways and a huge debt. Another Bid in 1928 Two years later, alter Governor Martmeau had resigned to accept the federal judgeship, Mr. Terral made his Ihird camnaign for governor, but his approach was obsolete and ne ran a poor third. Runner-up was Brooks Hays, not many years out of the University of Arkansas, who had Ihc support of many young people and who put on a modernized, though modestly financed, campaign.. He sought voles by offering a specific program, rather than relying on a lavorable personal impression on the electorate. Lines that persist fairly well until this day were formed in lhat Hays vs. Harvey Parnell race, which the alter won. Pretty much the same hne-ups went to it again in 1930 and again Parnell was victor; but the campaign deepened the cleavage between many factions and individuals. In 1932, the anti-admin- istiatipn strength was massed behind Judge J. M. Futrell, and he won handily. . Former Governor Terral tried ^e last time in 1930, with pool- results. That year, Carl E. Bailey was elected with support independent of established political cliques some of which tried without success to limit him lo a single term 194 °' though ' the ultra- elements regained control i ,- S t a 4? government with the eletion of Homer M. Adkins An Original Laney Man isy. this time, Mr. Terral was convinced that there was no point m his trying for a second term thn Kr n d he was among the first to talk up the stock of Ben Laney for governor. Ho was also one of the most ardent of the Laney fans. Among the friends who were drawn to Governor Terral in his early campaigns was John L. Mc- Cle Ian, now the senior United States senator. Back in 1928 he made speeches in behalf of' the former governor, and "Mr. Terral went a " out fo!

H. Washburn No Consent, No Compromise ^-Qnly the Jail-House Blues! Ten years ago Hempstead county had a local option election and the prohibitionists were defeated—just as they will be defeated this March 19, the payoff for arrogance and intolerance. 9" February 12, 1936, your correspondent wrote: Ihe only way the people of Arkansas can seize the iquor traffic—either legal or illegal—and establish a publicly-owned dispensary system with one store to a town, is to s yirst^beat the prohibitionists at the polls. "Next Tuesday's election will be a mandate not on the six privately-owned liquor stores but on the one-public-store system of the state dispensary. "The issue will be this, I say, because the six privately- owned stores represent only the second choice of Governor Kitrcll and the state administration. The first choice was a state dispensary —but the dispensary was opposed in public hearings before the legislature one year ago by the very groups now campaigning for statutory prohibition in Hempstead county!" . A'.Y I was for the state dispensary plan ten years ago, and am today. This newspaper is not defending the private package store system; it's up to the prohibitionists to defend it—for they created it. And you know why they created the private package store system. They opposed the state dispensary plan because they were afraid it might work so well it would be above criticism. They let the private package store law be enacted, hoping it would be an easier target to shoot at. Within the last year Governor Ben Laney has revived the Vstate dispensary plan, proposing that the state government get the profits of store-operation as well as the tax on liquor. But no attention is paid to it by the very extremists who are always shouting "morality" and "reform." They ask no man's consent. They brook no compromise. They want the right to dictate other men's lives. Here is your belligerent minority, angrily shouting down the rights of the great majority. Their only weapon of oppression is the local option law —which provides something unique in American politics: t^That if you happen to stay away from the polls you run the risk of losing your liberty. You have read about proposals to put men in jail for failing to vote. You don't need to read any further. You already have such a law. It's local option. * * * ® By JAMES THRASHER /T:omic Confusion The Truman-Atllcc statement of some months back was scarcely the , ,,1381 word on the disposition of the •n* atomic bomb.

He told the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America that we should keep atomic weapons until an international police force is established to which those weapons can be /,.-,.ransferred. Most of the other v * atomic-bomb scientists seem to favor sharing the "secret" with the rest of the world. So confusion is added to confusion. Statesmen, congressmen, military leaders, and scientists disagree among themselves and with each other. The layman, who also has some stake in the disposition of this weapon, naturally doesn't know who is right, who is wrong, or \; hat to think. II'seems to us that it would be well if these men who share the ,, knowledge of and responsibility for 11 controlled nuclear fission would gel together and answer, to the besl of their ability, some pertinent questions by way of supplying the world's ordinary people with some needed background. How "secret" is the atomic bomb secret, anyway? Is it a secret of method or resources or both'.' Should the secret be shared? Can the secret be kept?

But the whole problem would be a litlle easier for Ihe world public lo grasp if Ihe present kiirnlcss barrage of personal opinion were replaced by one set of expert conclusions.

'| 1 They know that some lalsr, infinitely more deadly atomic bomb in the hands of United Nations forces would still be unable to pick out, the evil from the innocent and unoffending civilians, and thai il would be ;is greul a threat to civilization as if il were in the hands of an aggressor. We also believe that if the John Docs had to accept the threat of world destruction as a companion of research into the peaceable, beneficial uses of atomic energy, they uwould say, "Let us abandon atomic research. So long as the threat of the bomb exists, mankind is not worthy of receiving the benefits of such research, or capable of using them wisely." DIES IN ACIDENT Helena. March 14 — (UP) — Aaron Hornor, 2H, was killed late yesterday when the truck in which By United Press Two of the nation's longest and largest labor disputes, involving 275,000 workers, were sctlled loday cxccpl for Ihc formality of, rank and file acceptance of the proposed contracts. Agreements to end the two strikes — the CIO Auto Workers' against General Motors and the CIO Electrical Workers' walkout against the General Electric Co.— were reached on the basis of wage increases of Hi 1-2 cents an hour. Conclusion of the 114-day-old GM strike was described by Secretary of Labor Lewis B. Schwcllenbach as the "most significanl" of any reached in recent work stoppages. Schwellcnbach, said it pointed to early settlement of remaining labor-management disputes idling 3G7.000 workers. The number was the smallest since the current wave of recon- version industrial disputes broke out early this year. Aflcr the steel, meat and electrical walkouts in January, more than 1,800,000 workers were idle in strikes and shutdowns resulting from strikes. The General Electric agrosment was lo be subniilted for ratification by local unions at membership meetings Saturday, and workers were expected back on the job Monday. Maintenance crews were scheduled to return to GM's 92 strike-bound plants next week. In other major labor developments: 1. Bus and trolley transportation in Louisville, Ky., was resumed after CIO transport workers unanimously approved an agreement to end a six-day walkout. 2. A federal conciliator was assigned lo sit in on soft coal wage negotiations to be available for assistance, if necessary, to avert a mine strike April 2. 3. Public transportation was back to normal at Gary, Ind., under a company-union agreement to submit disputed wage demands to arbitration, 4. The UAW's national Ford council ended a four-day session without approving a new contract with Ihe Ford Molor Co., and certain minor points of the .'agreement were ordered renegotiated before submission for rank-and-fil ai> proval. The agreement to end the 59- day-old General Electric strike, af- fecling 100,000 workers in 16 states, was announced jointly last niifhl by union and company representatives. In addition to the 18 1-2 cents pay boost, the proposed contract provided for relroaclive pay to Jan. 1 on the basis of the company's original offer of a 10 cents an fiour increase to employes earning less than $1 an hour, and 10 per cent to those earning more than $1. Simultaneously with the GE announcement, however, the union said thai no progress had been reported toward settlement of the .strike of 75.000 members against Westinghousc Electric Corp.

In a prepared statement he continued: "The county is now engaged in two campaigns. The Interest in the March J9 election should afford our volunteer Red Cross workers unusual opportunities, especially in Ihc rural areas and towns, to present the plea of the Red Cross to large groups. Surely no sponsors 01 any meeting would remse a bit of lime lo workers for ait organization, whose flag is more widely respected throughout the world than any other, wnose cause Is publicly endorsed by President Truman, Gen. Eisenhower, Gov. Laney, Judge Luck, Mayor Graves, and both Veterans organizations, the Ministerial Alliance and the County Medical Society. "I appeal to our rural workers lo take advantage of these oppor- luniiics now. Hundreds of people •arc altending inese meetings. Very few of the adulls will refuse to contribute $1.00 or more to the Red Cross, if given the opportunity. A lot of you faithful workers have helped put over the Red Cross Drive a lol of limes. If it were not lor you, the job would not be done and won't be done Ihis year. "Presently -there is much talk some aboul Ihe danger of liquor and by others aboui Ihe danger of boolleggers. Certainly neither liquor nor bootleggers or both are any more dangerous to Hempstead County citizens than is an area where our boys are stationed in Germany or Japan that has no Red Cross Clubs, for without wholesome places for recreation, the" men arc sometimes tempted to seek the company of German frau- leins or Japanese geisha girls. Only today I received a letter from a young soldier stationed in Passau, Germany, stating thai he 'was not templed by the frauleins 'because they had a good Red Cross Club there'. To date a lot of people, especially in Hope, have worked hard and contributed, some quite liberally. Yet there are over 30,000 people in the county and only a few more than a thousand have contributed to the Red Cross lo dale. II is our organization. With our work and our contributions let's go over the top, now."

This building, when completed, will be leased to the Shanhouse & Sons Co. at an annual rental of 4 percent of the certified building cost. The industrial fund will be raised by the purchase of slock in' $100.00 denominations, the purchase of such stock forming a corporation to administer the funds and the rental of the building. A building of this size is estimated to cost approximately $65,000 and in order to assure a new payroll in Hope of $200,000 per year, the responsibility falls on each of us to purchase stock in Hope's Indus-, trial Fund to the full extent of our abilily. The establishment of any Industrial Fund is not easy—it takes a progressive and civic minded community to formulate a corporation ot this magnitude. But this is one of those opportunities that we have been waiting for. It is here. It is now up to all of us lo make sure that this opportunity for industrial expansion and for a new payroll does not slip past us. Let us all, then, be ready to purchase our part of this Industrial Fund when we are called upon next week. The future belongs to those who plan for it, who work for it, and who sacrifice for it.

"This ruling clique in Iran — not without instigation from the outside — dreamed of tearing away Soviet territories and also went so far as to try to make the Caspian sea into an internal Iranian sea," Alexeev declared. Ibrahim Hakimi, who was premier at Tehran just before the P resent premier, Ahmed Qavam es jjHaneh, was declared by Alexeev to be among the cliquer entertaining anti-Soviet designs. "Facts remain" facts," the com- menlalor declared. "Iranian re- aclionnaries wanted to use the temporary difficulties of Ihe Soviet Union for seizing an appreciable part of ils territory, including the oil districls of Baku and Turk- menia, and thereby deprive the Soviet Union of oil." He said the claims were not even considered at the Paris peace conference at the end of the First World War, "but the advancement of such demands cannot be regarded as accidental because, during the entire history of Soviet- Iranian relations, some Iranian statesmen have carried on politics directed toward bringing about a collision between the Soviet Union and other great powers and using such a situation for accomplishing their grasping plans." He added: "It cannot be considered as accidental that this same Hakimi who in 1919 was a member of Ihc gov- crnmenl XXX and one of the instigators of the seizure plans of the Caucasus was the same Hakimi who headed the Iranian covern- ment from 1945 to February of this year and poisoned the atmosphere of Soviet-Iranian relations until very recent times.

Treaties to be written are those for Italy, the Balkan states and Finland. In the American view until they are disposed of there will be no final withdrawal of foreign troops from the countries involved, particularly the Balkan trouble spots. Also in the American view, until the troops are removed there can be no lasting hope of restoring the full independence of those countries and minimizing troubles in them. Specifically the Anglo-American disputes with Russia are reflected in such treaty-writing issues as Italian and Yugoslav claims over Trieste and Italian and Austrian claims to the South Tyrol. Both of these involve regions lying belween lhe Russian and western zones of influence in Europe. Diplomats familiar with the situation describe the work on these issues as slowed by the mutual distrusts and suspicions of the two which have been pushed further great power factions — factions which have been pushed further apart by the failure of Russia to pull her troops out of Iran by the March 2 deadline and by the latest reports telling instead of the movement of reinforced Red Army units deeper, into the country. Churchill Is Silent on Stalin Charge New York, March 14 — (/P)— Winslon Churchill remained silent today on accusations leveled against him by Generalissimo .Stalin as he whiped into shape a 30-minute speech he will deliver tomorrow night at an official New York City dinner. The Mutual Broadcasting system said the former British prime minister would discuss "latest developments" in connection with his recent Fulton, Mo., address. He is scheduled to start speaking at 9:30 p. m. (CST). Stalin charged Churchill yesterday with wonting for a "war with the U.S.R." .and with telling "lies" in his Missouri talk. The importance of what Churchill will say at the dinner will be heightened by the presence on the dais with him of 42 ambassadors and ministers to the United States, as well as official representatives of the United Nations organization, It was still uncertain last night whether Andrei A. Gromyko, .Russian ambassador, would accept an invitation to atlend. The Russian embassy in Washington said it had no information to give out. When newspapers carrying Stalin's denunciation of Churchill reached the street yesterday, copies immediately were sent up to the Briton's suit at the Waldorf-Astoria. Shortly afterwards, a member of his staff said: "Mr. Churchill has read the statement and has no comment. That is official."

Bevin told the House of Commons that despite the continued presence of Soviet troops in Iran the British government had taken no decision to put British troops back in the troubled area. "Nor", he added, "have his majesty's government taken any steps to open negotiations with the Iranian government for the return of British troops." British troops, evacuating Iran March 2 under the Anglo-Soviet- Iran Ireaty agreement, moved across the border into Iraq. Reviewing the Iranian situation up to th.e date of the agreed withdrawal, Bevin declared the British government had received the "most categorical assurances" from Generalissimo Stalin and the Soviet government thai Iran's integrity would be respected. "We were assured," the foreign minister added, "thai there was no intention of taking aggressive ac- lion against her (Iran)." "It is very difficult for his ma- jesly's government to understand the present policy of Soviet Russia in this matter" Bevin declared, "and even more difficult even to believe that all their assurances are not going to be fulfilled." Bevin made his statement in reply to a question by Anthony Eden, and former foreign minister. Bevin acting leader of the conservatives said, "would regret any settlement United Nations security council for Russia and Iran to settle their dif. ferences by direct negotiation "on the clear assumption" that existing treaty obligations would be fulfilled.

Hits Federal Council Churches Texarkana, March 14 — (IP) — The American Baptist Association, in convention here, has adopted a resolution terming the Federal Council of Churches of Christ a "menace to true Christianity." "We believe that said organization is unscriptural." the associa- lion declared, "in thai it denies many of the fundamental doctrines of the Christian churches \ is unscriptural, unholy and undesirable, because it sects to do so on the basis of modernism and ' the so- called social gospel.

The Baptist Association does )iot have any connection with the council, the resolution said, but the council presumes "lo speak for all evangelical Christianity and has made Ihe impression that it represents all the churches of America, including Baptists. It does not at any time speak for our churches." The association represents 442 Baptist churches in 17 states, Hawaii and Canada. , (Delayed) - Turkey, 'which. , still is fully mobilized, heard in uneasy silence today that Russian combat troops were moving southward in Iran and down toward the Turkish-Iraq border Government leaders said noth- ng but they have pledged to fight to the death before allowing any foreign foe to cross their borders. The full importance of the troop movements was not determined. Diplomatic sources, however said it could be a maneuver to bring pressure on Turkey for the provinces of Kars and Ardahan.

The department is not officially releasing the contents of these reports at this time, but it can be staled in general that they show three Russian forces of strong but nol massive size distributed about as follows: One column at Karaj, 23 miles from Tehran, Iranian capital where, American officials belie"e a leftist coup may be planned by Tudeh (Communist) party leaders to install pro-Soviet government under the sponsorship of the Moscow command. Another column has passed the town of Marand north of Urmia lake and turn toward Rhoi in the wild country of Kurdish tribesmen along the Turkish -border The third column at Mianeh, south of the communication center of Tabriz, and in position to go either toward Tehran or toward the Turkish-Iraq border! Because of the nearness of the forces to the area of the Kurds, who inhabit a three-nation area centered around the frontier juncture of Turkey, Iran and Iraq, there is strong speculation here that -one major Russian objective may be lo launch a Kurdish uprising which would simultaneously involve all three of the Middle Kastern countries.
