March 22 — (UP)—A pretty, 14 year old schoolgirl, who nad "nothing to live for" nnd'who had "done nothing wrong" but ..apparently could not endure the jibes of her schoolmates, will be buried here today, a suicide. The girl, Nellie Ruth Alexander, turned up the radio Wednesday aft- ernon in the home of her grandparents at Shop Springs near here. tied a string to the trigger of a shotgun, and shot herself through the heart. Deputy Sheriff S. C. Shorter reported, and the coroner returned a verdict of "death bv suicide." • Nellie Ruth had been living with her grandparents after her father died in Nashville several years ago and her mother remarried. Shorter said she apparently had been taunted by her schoolmates after they saw a man. who had given her a ride on the highway. let her out at her junior high school. He said the girl left a note which read, in part, as follows: '" . . . My father is dead . . T have nothing to live for .

The International Sunday School Lesson for March 24 Sunday School Lesson Scripture: I Samuel, Chapters 1-7/ especially I Samuel 7:1-8, 13-15 By WILLIAM E. GILROY, D.D. When, and how, does a people become a nation? History has various answers. Sometimes the pro- cessis slow, as in the building of our American life out of original colonies, with much common heritage, bul widely separated geographically and in sentiment. Sometimes the process is rapid but nol altogether effectual, as in Ihc nalional dcvelopmenls following World War I. In the hislory of Israel Ihc process was slow in beginning, bul swift and slrong in its final stage because strong leaders came on Ihe scene. In the progres from Egyptian bondage (Tirough the wilderness to the Promised Land, the consciousness of the people ' was tribal, racial and religious, rather lhan nalional, and when the religious life was at a low ebb, as it was repeatedly in the lapses of the people into idolatry, the lines of distinclion between the Isracliles and Iheir idolatrous neighbors were weakened. In the period of the Judges leaders like Joshua and Deborah, the woman judge, exercised great influence, but afler them came evil days. Eli, the high 'priest,, seems to have been a man of personal integrity and loyalty to the people, for the news of military disaster to Israel so overcame him that he fell from the balcony where he was sitting and was killed. But the record concerning Eli is that "his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not." The course of Ihese sons, accepting bribes and misconducling ihcmsel- ves with women worshippers who came to Ihc people, shows lo what a corrupt stale the people had fallen. But now there came a new lead- er, who with religious fervor and integrity combined high qualities of pohtcal leaclcrshp. It was under this new leader, Samuel, lhal The people attained such strong national consciousness that they " rejected Samuel himself, as the religious head, demanding a military leader and king, thus paving the way for that disaster which was shortly to come upon them. The story of Samuel, both in its personal aspects and in ils poli- lical implications, is of great interest. We see him first as the little boy in the temple, brought there by his mother, Hannah, and devoted to Ihe service of tho high priest, ii.li. He was the child of love and prayer. His father. Elkanah is one of the truly noble figures in the Old Testament, <i man of delicate feeling who truly loved his wife, despite her barrenness; and Samuel, in the beautiful account of his birth, was the child ol his mother's prayers. Eli loo, was more successful with his little helper than he was with his own sons; and when Samuel heard a voice calling him JMI did not, rebuke him, or make fun of him, but recognized that it was a divine call, and told him when tho call came again to say health." 1 ' 01 ' 111 ^ thy sorvnni From thai hour Samuel became conscious of a great mission He cleansed the temple of its abuses, restored and slrenglhcncd Ihe religious hie of the people, but became also their political -and military leader. He took hold wilh a firm hand, and if we picture him as tho mild little child serving in the lemplo, we must put beside thai picture the serve jud"c hewing in pieces before the altar the enemy king, Agar, in rctri- 2 Cage Stars Stand Out at the Garden New York, March 22 — (UP! — New York basketball fans had two heroes today, not quite so glittering as Rhode Island's ICrnie Calverley, but nonetheless impressive ns they led North Carolina into the finals of (ho eastern NCAA regional with an upset 57 to -10 conquest of New York University. John Dillon, a black-haired forward with a hook shot that couldn't miss, and skinny center Horace (Hones) McKinney got all tho attention at last night's doublohcader at Madison Square Garden. Their smooth performances stood out in bold relief against the scrambling, sloppy play of the first game, in which Ohio State won the right to meet North Carolina Saturday night by beating Harvard, -It) to H8. Dillon scored 15 points before ho went out on fouls in the last 10 minutes, and every one of his dead-center scores came at a time when it hurt NYU the most. Every time the favored Now Yorkers who never game up, threatened to pull back into thu ball same, union produced one of two hok shots — and one or two baskets. Store Sales in January Up by 30% Little Rock. March 22 — (UP)—Independent retail store sales in Arkansas were 3d per cent higher ',n,'J ai ," u "' y - 1!H(i - tnan '» January. 1945, it was revealed today by tho uepartment of Commerce, 'Bureau ° r i' 10 CcI1SLI! ;- At the same time, J.

Capl said, "were registered for furniture stores with 5G per cent, lumber-building material;; dealers with 4B per cent, motor vehicle dealers with .10 per cent, and drug stores who showed a 2i5 per cent gain." .bating and drinking establishments, with 11 concerns reporting in Arkansas, showed a healthy 11! per cent increase over the same period last year, while general stores, drug stores, jewelry stores and fillniR stations also showed substantial gains. Kurd Rebels Take Border Town in Iraq By SAM SOUKI Tehran, March 22 — (UP)—British sources reported today (hrit rebellious Iranian Kurds had captured Sardosht, one of three towns in the border area fronting Iraq which Ihcy had been besieging The Kurds were reported "main, taming their sieges of Saqquix. and Biino. neighboring towns of Sar- dosht in northwest Iran below Lake Urmia. Iranian reinforcements have been sent to S.aqquix. nnd Bane to aid the beleaguered garrisons! according to the British information from the region where the Kurds were reported to have proclaimed an autonomous republic. United States Minister Wallace Murray saw Premier Ahmed Ghavam today. No word of what thcv discussed was forthcoming immediately. A tight curtain of secrecy still concealed the diplomatic proceedings here. An uprising among the Kurds' in northwest Iran was reported two days ago. The government dispatched seven planes to the area to intervene when the weather permitted.

Washington March 21 —(/I')— The lation's farms appeared likely today lo turn out less meals, milk and poultry products for the next 15 months or so. Bul the reduction apparently will not be serious enough to force a •eturn to rationing. An agriculture department sur- /ey on farmers' 194G planting in- entions indicates that livestock 'ocd grain supplies already far short of requirements may con- .inue below demands for a year dfler Ihis season's crops are harvested. The present shortage of corn and other feed supplies is forcing many armors lo curtail production of meat animals poultry and dairy producls. On the other hand the supply of bread grains also far below demands of domestic consumers and of famine-plagued areas abroad appears likely to be restored by another bumper wheat crop. Should this crop turn out as favorably as now indicated it might be possible for the governmenl lo end ils presenl wheat conservation program by late summer. Thus the edict for darker flour and bread could be lifted without curtailing grain shipments to hungry areas abroad. The planting survey released yesterday had one particularly dark spot. II indicaled lhal Ihe counlry may continue to bo short of food fats and oils for possibly another year. Prospective acreages of soy beans and flax seed principal sources of vegetable oils are considerably shorl of government goals. Given favorable weather during the growing season and assuming that farmers will carry out their planting intentions the production of vegetables rico potaloos and sweel polatoes should be amplp. o 3 Are Accused in Fatal Knifing of Man at Ft.

Capitol Talk Little Rock, March 22—Regional and slate offices of the Farm Security Administration wore in a dither this week after the House passed the Flannagan bill to transfer lending powers from the Do- parlmenl of Agriculture to a seven- member "independent" board. Ths is not a new idea. In fact a "Farm Board" was established to cope with agricultural crisis long beiore the New Deal came along with its variety of solutions for Ihe farmer's problems. Results of the original Farm Board were not such as to lead to its pcrpctualion. But two years ago when legislation was proposed—in the Coley bill—to revamp, and .strengthen, the Farm Security Administration (which was to be re-christened i opponents bore down on the independent board idea to handle all governmenl farm lending. Particularly emphatic in urging some such porcedure were the American Farm Bureau Federation and the Grange,' which is not strong in Arkansas but in many Midwestern and Eastern stats is the dominant farm organization.

Like the mystical word "abracadabra," which in ancient days was supposed to ward off illness, this magic sum is by very invocation Jhc cure for all our economic ills. _ It must be. For in a variety of industries, and under a variety of conditions, bitter adversaries have discovered the sum after weeks of wrangling, and forthwith have clasped hands like brother Elks yjd departed in peace. Whence came this momentary talisman? Nobody seems to know — unless perhaps it is Labor Secretary Schwellcnbach, who told reporters in a later-repented burst of candor that it guessed it was "sort of like Topsy." We seem to recall that Henry Kaiser was the first employer to perceive its magic power and pass it along to his workers. Then President Truman, sensing the magic, allowed as how he thought 18'A cents would be about the right •tfjflgc increase for the whole steel industry. But Mr. Truman, being <-a Mis-*"'--"* ' " ««*•* •»«»» **»7" ••/** i-»« Htiu inciiMEilion, blindly. He put fact-finders lo work wasn't inclined to rush into things on the auto industry problem, and they came up with the sum of ID',4 cents. This clearly was the result of a natural but mistaken desire to distrust magic and apply long and painful brain work instead. The magic would not be downed, however. While the auto fact-find- £ffs pursued their skeptical way, , companies and unions all over the country wore submitting their dissimilar problems to this economic alchemy and coming out with the same solution—18'/fc cents. We welcome the new magic, but we do think thai its use could be simplified from now on. There is no need for elaborate ceremony. The ancients didn't build a fire on the altar and sacrifice a goat before pronouncing Ihc word "abracadabra." They jusl said il. Or, simpler yet, they had il print- Od on a churni which Ihcy wore around their necks to ward off chills, fevers, ond court summonses. The same practice should be adopted wilh the magic sum. Let's have no more long, costly spectacles like a 113-day strike which cosl 175,000 workers an average of $745 each, which slallcd production, postponed prosperity, and caused uncalculatcd millions lo be losl nol only to the company but lo our whole business economy. tjvLct's fix il so Ihc magic sum Can be prescribed for every wage earner's malady—be he truck driver, ribbon clerk, stevedore, or fiddler—jusl as swiftly as an aspirin is prescribed for .a headache.

Neither senator intimated that he believed war with Russia was ear. Fulbright said there had been a strong turn toward preparedness for war in the last ten days, and McClellan, formerly opposed to extension of the Selective Service acl beyond May 15, its expiration date, said "now I may have lo revise my opinion." The senators did not agree with Senator Pepper's (D-Fla.) proposal that tho Uniled States destroy its atom bombs and the machinery which makes them. They appeared Postponement of Bomb Test Significant Washington, March 23—f/P)—Pres- ident Truman called the Pacific atom bomb tesl off for six weeks and thereby set the capital buzzing today over Ihc reasons behind his surprise decision. Mr. Truman said merely he was ordering Ihe poslponement because a 'heavy legislative" calendar will prevent congressmen from witnessing the experiments which were scheduled to start in the Bikini atoll on May 15. Announcement of Ihe postponement virtually on the eve of the UNO sessions in New York aroused much conjeclure, however, particularly since yesterday produced Generalissimo Stalin's public avowal of confidence in UNO's fulure world role and his slalement he believed no nation was seeking "'ar. Perplexing features in tha picture were lhal Ihe a-bomb lesl lask force already had been pul in motion and lhal the UNO meeting, as well as continued congressional sessions, both have been fairly definite for some time. And Capilol Hill has nol noted any wide-spread clamor from legislators to witness the experiment Initial reaction was that the president's unexpected decision was related in some degree to the uneasy recent slate o£ international affairs, the. congressional controversy over the military's role ,jn'future atomic development, and also the administralion's difficulties in mus-' lering sufficienl voles in Ihc House and Scnale for ils program. Mr. Truman's order, issued last night, took congressmen and armed force commanders by surprise. Senator Johnson (D-Colo) member of both the Senate Miliatary Committee and the Senate Atomic Energy Commilec, told reporters he had no advance knowledge of the decision. Chairman Vinson (D- Ga) of the House Naval Committee, a body directly concerned with the lesls of Ihe bomb on warcrafl expressed similar surprise.

It is expected that 800 additional employes will be added to the CPA field staff to implement Ihe new order At present, CPA is setting aside up to 50 per cent of the total production of certain building materials for the veterans preference housing program. As the program has explained, it appeared that such set-asides would be inadequate to meet the 2,700,000 housing goal. Despite the opposition of many commercial and industrial builders who maintain that they are not equipped to do residential construction, the government decided to put a non-residential order into effect to insure success of the veterans housing program. . ^7 • ~" \'< t — ivua- sia s man in the slreet voiced his approval today of Generalissimo blahn s expression of confidence in the United Nations and his assurance that neither nations nor their armies want war.

As Ihis column has remarked before, you've gol to be here in Europe and sec these things in order to get a full realization of the oxtenl of the catastrophe. The total war which Hitler inaugurated truly belonged to Ihc alomic age. It nol only slopped the wheels of progress bul il destroyed the means of recovery. Those means now must come largely from the western hemisphere. That's why we France knocking al our door. She's one of the hard hit countries. Her present misfortune is due lo various reasons, including political confusion and spiritual hurl, but we find enough cause for economic distress in the despoilment of this great country by Ihc Hitlerites. Here, as in most other occupied territories, the Nazis nol only sent thousands of citizens of servitude in Germany bul plundered the country of equipment essential to keep Ihc economic wheels turning. For instance, much of Die rolling slock of the railroads was run off for use in Germany and other in- u,, u 41 uwt-upies an exceptionally vaded countries. Factories were I important position as Ihe wheel- striped of machinery, and ma- horse of the western part of the chine tools were t.tolfcii wholesale.

Much of the tremendous amount of wealth which Hitler collected in Germany was destroyed in the Allied hurricane that swept the Reich. Then, loo, even whore machinery and various kinds of supplies are found intact, it frequently is difficult tu determine ownership. I was talking the olher day wilh a famous Dutch manufacturer who told me of losing an invaluable trainload of material to the Germans. Whal appears lo be this material has now been found in one of the occupied zones of Germany but there is no way of making positive identification, and consequently the Dutch firm can't get il back. So the stricken countries of Europe must turn to the Uniled Stales for the wherewithal to rehabilitate themselves, since there's no other nation which has the necessary resources.
