Most folks don't think like that now. But one of the drys who is trying to get us to bring back so-called prohibition to Hempstead county, forgot about liquor and beer and raised coin about smoking in one of his speeches. I think that is a sure sign that those folks don't care a hoot about the moral, legal or economic part of the question, they just want to be able to tell everyone else what to do. It looks to me like it would be just as sensible to call a local option election on smoking. Yours truly, Ray T.

Consolidated 47TH YEAR^ VOL. 47— -NO. 131 OUR DAILY BREAD ==== Sliced Thin by Tho Editor Alex. H. Washburn Liquor Uncertain Evil-But Jail Certainly Definite On Tuesday Hempstead county goes to the polls in a local option election which will attempt to outlaw liquor and The prohibitionists are spraying you with alleged facts ar\d figures—the old merry-go-round business of how there were umpety-ump arrests for drunkenness in prohibition days and umpety-ump-UMP arrests during these days of legal liquor sales. You know the old adage: Figures don't lie.--but liars do figure. I say that kindly. The prohibitionists are trying to prove something—and when you are trying to prove something you only tell as much as suits your case. That's why, when you are m court they make you swear: To tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. The whole truth about police-arrest figures is that they mean absolutely nothing. Every citizen recognizes that when the law is so magnified as to make virtually everyone a criminal—as under prohibition-—the police simply give up and don't arrest anybody ..,8ut under the legal sale of liquor drunkenness is strictly accountable to the police. We demand—and get—law enforcement. Don't tell me about prohibition days. When The Star was on Mam street a woman was killed by a drunken driver —m front of our office. Back in those days officers didn't do anything about drunkenness until someone was killed Get drunk nowadays and they will arrest you'. That's the difference between "prohibition" and law and order. , _ There's nothing new in this debate over liquor—nothing you haven't heard, nothing that the nation and state and county haven't tried, a generation ago. All I've got to say in closing is this: Liquor in this 20th Century day is -a muchly overrated evil. It was a terror, possibly, back in our pioneer days yet our ancestors lived through it. Back in those days there were no movies, no automobiles, no electric refrigerators, no radios—not much of any place to go, and little to spend your money on, except the oldtime saloon. No wonder too many people got drunk, back in .jhose days. But to state that liquor holds the same importance in the ' life of our people today is to state something palpably false. And I am violently opposed to passing a law that would railroad the poor and friendless off to jail just because a few strong-minded gentry imagine our country hasn't changed one jot in a generation * * * © 1899: PrssJ. 1927.

HOPE, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, MARCH 18, 1946 By JAMES THRASHER Look Before Leaping _ News dispatches from San Juan indicate an apparent break be- >vccn Gov. Rexford Guy Tugwell '•find his erstwhile crony. Senate Leader Luis Munoz Marin. Munoz's'Puerto Rican New Deal or "Populares" party has put through bills demanding a voice in the selection of Dr. Tugwell's successor and a plebiscite as to Puerto Rico's future political sla- tus. Munox, has leaned strongly lion. Three lit lovvard independence for lhc is f! land, and in such a plebiscite probably would achieve a majority for separation from the Uni- led Stales. Governor Tugwell has ,*jetoed the two bills, which probably will be rcpassed and sent lo Prcsidcnl Truman for final ac- - years ago President Roosevelt said that there was no question thai the Puerto Ricans now arc capable of administering there own al'fvirs. That is not finite .accurate. There is a very real question. But if nothing more were involved than this question, it is doutbful whether the United Stales, trading on our superior size and military strength, would .)fs justified in holding the Puerto Hicans to unwilling colonial sla- lus. Unfortunately, (here arc other considerations. One arises from the fact that Puerto Rico enjoys a distinctly preferred status. It is permitted lo retain ils own cus- luins, receipts, and its people tire exempted from the federal income tax so that thc insular government can levy a tax of its own. Without contributing to federal income, il benefits from at least its full share of federal public works Ami relief cxpendiures. It has all the privileges and benefits of American citizenship except complete self-rule and a vote in Wash- mglon, with none of thc obligations. That special status is extended because without il Ihe two million Puoro Ricans could not even subsist, on their one million arable (and aiiolher million waste) acres. Even with such dispensation they barely manage to hold wasted bodies and oppressed souls together. A second consideration is that JJuorto Rico occupies a particularly strategic location in the Caribbean for prgtectiqn of the Panama Canal. If WQ grant freedom, it must be with some provision for defensive naval.and air installations on the island. Before committing ourselves on this question of turning Puerto Rico loose, we ought lo have firmly in mind just how much •—and how— we intend lo contribute lo keep these wards of ours from starvation and what—perhaps in return—we should obtain in the way of Canal •*'•' ighls on the island. Court Turns Down Plea of Sheriff Little Rock, March 18 —(/I 1 ) — The Arkansas Supreme Court today refused lo reinstate a $50,000 personal damage action brought by Independence County Sheriff Edgar Baker against three members of the state comptroller's staff in connection with an audit of Baker's accounts for 1943 and 1944. The opinion sustained an Independence circuit decree dismissing a suit broughl under the slander and libel statues against Bruce Frascr, Kelley Carnett and Homer Howell. Their formal report on thc audit shosved Baker owed the county general fund $788.68 and the county salary fund $4,039.90. Baker filed suit against the trio and a bonding company, charging the report was false and the allegations were made maliciously. Thc action against the bonding firm was dismissed on its claim that it was nol a surely for lhc three officials. Frascr, Carnelt and Howell, represented by thc alorncy general, filed a motion to quasb thc summons and dismiss thc case because they were residents of Pulaski county. Tho motion was granted. Baker appealed to thc Supreme Court challenging correctness of the decree and the right of tho attorney general to appear for the trio. Prisoner of * Japs Gives to Red Cross After noticing that the Little Hock Red Cross Fund drive chairman had reported liberal contributions from veterans who had been prisoners of the Japs, Roycc Woiscnberger, Hempstead County drive chairman, today announced Lhc donation of $5 by Staff Sergeant H. C. Carter, a Hempstead County regular Army man who lives and owns a farm on Rt. 3, Hope. Sgt. Carter was taken prisoner on Corregidor and returned to Hope with the frist group of liberated prisoners of the Japs. Mr. Wciscnberger, whose division, the Glh Armored, liberated several American prison camps in Germany, in addition to many of other Allied soldiers, added that there was always wide-spread praise of the Red Cross parcels that in many instances made the difference enough to keep alive on and starvation.

DroltLikely to Continue for 6 Months Washington March 18 —(/P)— The idea of a six-week compromise extension caught the fancy of some senators today as pressure grew for keeping the draft alive. Selective Service now is due to expire May 15. The six-week period would carry it to July 1. With the Senate Military Committee set for a full dress review of the subject tomorrow there were these developments: 1. Secretary of State Byrnes added his pleas to those of President Truman and top army officers when he told a New York audience Saturday night that this country needs military strength to support the principles of the United Nations. He said "the situation will become critical' is extended. unless the draft 2. Members of the House Mili- .ary commitee disclosed secret .cslimony of War Department officials that the army might fall to only 570,000 men by July 1, 1947 it is has to rely solely on voluntary enlistments after May 15. That is a half million men below the army's House members goal. 3. Twenty-six joined in sponsoring a resolution calling for a snecial study of the draft question by a Senate-House committee. Forrestalto Stay at Post Until July! Washington, March 18 — (UP) — President Truman has persuaded Secretary of the Navy James For- reslal to remain in the cabinet until July 1, it was learned today. But despite Forrestal's decision lo delay his resignation for another two or three months, the top civilian leadership of the navy remains disgruntled over White House support W of 34 GM Unions Hold Out By United Press , Thousands of General Motors em- ployes continued their prolonged and costly walkout today, but in other industrial disputes San Francisco shipyard machinists voted to •resume work and the first break appeared in the middle west's farm machinery strikes. In the General Motors dispute returns had been received from 34 local unions balloting on the new contract. Most of them approved the national contract, but 19 of the 34 voted to continue the walkout until local plant issues are settled. , The vote so far tabulated in- ,volved 89,500 strikers. There are 92 plants in the General Motors syslcrp, each with its local union. Settlement of the San Francisco and farm machinery disputes reduced to less than 310,000 the jiumbcr of workers idle in disputes across the nation. The major developments: 1. A strike of 10,000 machinists, which had kept idle an estimated 45,000 San Francisco Bay shipyards and machine shops since Oct. 29 1945. 2. Strikes at two plants of the Oliver Corp., farm equipment manufacturers, were ended. The strikes had crippled production at the company's South Bend, Ind , and Charles City, la., plants. -•' 3. Negotiations to settle the Weslingnouse Electric strike were stymied, but were scheduled to be resumed Tuesday. 4. Strike threats against two of three major rubber producers at Akron, O.. were removed at least temporarily. Local CIO United Rubbe Workers Unions voted to accept an 18-1-2 cent hourly raise at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. and the Goodrich Rubber Co. J.n the General Motors controversy, the biggest back-to-work movement a,mong the 175,00 strikers was in Michigan, where 28,000 employes in eight plants voted to go back to work today. . Of the .15 GM locals voting to return to work, 11 approved settlement of both national and local issues while four voted to return, pending settlement of local issues.

The Russians expressed regret ,and the State Department here said it attaches no significance to the incident. . 2. While little of what is happening in Tehran squeezes through the tight lid of secrecy, one report officially forwarded here came to light. It said the Russian diplomat in Tehran had warned Premier Ahmed Qavam es Sultaneh that Russia would consider it an unfriendly act for 'the Iranian government to reopen its case before the United Nations security council. There is no evidence, however, that the Iranian premier in any way has modified his earlier word to the United States government that Iran would present its case. 3. American officials' best estimate of the possibilities at the moment is that the Russians may try either to break Qavam's resistance or pull off a coup d'etat to put a new government in power The immediate Soviet objective would be to get official Iranian authority for the presence of Red Army troops in Iran. These troops were supposed to have been withdrawn March 2, and the fact that they still remain is the key point in the entire Iranian crisis. , 3. The tenor of American-Russian relations was set meanwhile by Secretary of State Byrnes with his assurance on the one hand that the American government does not intend to enter into a military alliance with Britain and his insistence on the other that the United States must act immediately to maintain and strengthen its armed forces. To do this he called for extending the draft law beyond its May 15 expiration and the enactment of peacetime military training. .

Continued on Page Two Railroads Spar Over Wage Demands Chicago, March 18 —(/Pi —Proposals of two railroad brotherhoods for changes in 45 complex working ruled are being considered by an emergency fact-finding board The Brotherhoods of Railroad - Tramment and Locomotive Engineers contend the revisions would raise salaries, improve working conditions and adjust "inequities" in the wage structure. But the railroads say the rule changes asked by the brotherhoods would pile two and one-half bill'on dollars or more on top their annual costs. The railroads estimated that a basic wage increase, demanded as one of the rules changes asked •. by the brotherhoods, would cost S920 000,000, with an additional 81,500 000,000 cost if the other 44 proposed, changes are granted. Faced with the union's threat to strike in support of their demands the railroads offered 29 counterproposals. . The trainmen also are present ing rule revision demands of the dining car stewards and yardmasters. The railroads argue that the stewards proposals would result in tripling present pay of these em- ployes, and that the yardmasters — representatives of management —would be reduced to the status of call boys. Originally, fi ve operating brotherhoods had submitted rule changes demands along with requests for basic wage increases but three of the unions agreed to defer rules revision.
