HOPE STAR, HdM, ARKANSAS Dilator Franco's Regime in Spcfin Probably Next Hurdle for UN Security Council DeWlTT MacKENZIE ,AP Poreign World Analyst It .looks.'very much as though the staftis 01 the franco government in, Spain may provide another earlv crisis with which the United Natfpns Security Council will have to smiggle. Thls'is a delicate and vastly im- por,tant situation and one which inyolj'es a further divergence of view .among the Big Three—Russia on the one side and the Western Allies on the other. It's an embarrassing baby to be left on the cdtincil doorstep. Still it is clear that it will have (o be dealt \vith| sopjiier "or later and, having studied tntt tJosinon at close range recent- 1".

Arigry Japs Grab Their Own Premier Tokyo, April 8 — (UP) —Angry representatives of popular front organizations laid hands on Japanese Premier Baron Kujuro Shide- hara today in an attempt -tn prevent him from ' leaving a conference room. Cabinet secretaries rushed to Shidehara's rescue and enabled him to make a getaway. He was unharmed. The demonstration was the second in- two days. On Sunday, an estimated 20,000 people stormed the premier's official residence and hurled rocks. The riot was quelled when armed American MP's were called. " Today's incident .took place after Shidehara met for a half-hour with a group of .left-wingers who asked a number of questions on the shortage of food, and on the problems of farmers and" laborers. To all questions, Shidehara merely listened. "When leaders of the group demanded his resignation, the premier stood up and started to leave the room. "You cannot leave here," some one shouted. "We're not through yet." .,..''/• Some of, the crowd surged forward and there occurred a few uncomfortable moments in which Shidehara found, himself pushed this way and that/Then cabinet secretaries surrounded . him . and cased him'' out of the T,opm. The- outbreak yesterday was the most violent seen in Tokyo since the restoration of free speech and assembly in Japan. Shots were tired and- windows in Shidehara's iiome were smashed. . The demonstration began when 70,000 members of the Democratic People's League held a mass meeting in Hibya park to discuss reports that Shidehara's cabinet was attempting to form its own political party to perpetuate its power. — - -o— Keister Wins Mohcfay, April 8, 1946 , April 8, 1946 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS" THMA SUFFrtERS FIND CURB FOR MISERY.

Masters' Tournament Augusta, Ga., April 8 — (UP) — As long as there is a masters' tournament at .the Augusta National golf course the 18th hole will be remembered at the one. where in 1946 Ben Hog'an lost a master's title and where Herman Keiser "backed" in to one. That was the topic of conversation all over town today and the discussion may never die. Keiser,' the Akron, O., pro, came up to the 18th hole yesterday needing a par to assure himself of the title and the $2-,500 first prize. He got off a good'drive but was long on his approach which seemed destined to carry him well beyond the green. But his ball hit the pin anc stopped on the green less than 2( feet from the hole and it lookec like he was "in." Then as some 2,000 of the 7,500 spectators looked on, he pushed a put some five feet beyond the cup and missec coming back to give him a bogey five, a 74 for the round and a 282 total.

Varga was charged with violating probation imposed April 0, 1944, on an abandonment charge involving his common-law wife, Helen Henderson. He was brought ito Milwaukee from Detroit, where he had'been living with wife number six. The dark-haired merchant- seaman readily admitted his marriages and explained that "gals Ike us seamen who come into own with a wad of dough."

In his final statement under di rect reexamination, Keitel fell back on his "soldier's :?aith" as a minion of Hitler in an impassioned attempt to exonerate himself of blame for the atrocity orders he admitted issuing. After the prosecution finished a blistering crossexamination Keitel was turned back to his own coun sel. He launched into an ideologi cal tirade summing up his stub born contention that as chief of the German high command he was a mere lackey of Hitler. "Persons not concerned—parti cularly foreigners—cannot -mder stand," he cried. "You have to know the fviehrer. You must know the circumstances under which I worked for years. "I raised my objections. The fuehrer would then raise his coun ter arguments which he considered congress ,the pope included "all of Catholic Soain. always an object of special affection from the vicar of Christ."

"I will say that in the ever in- Teasing military urgency I rea lized the Tightness of such meas ures. I allowed myself to become convinced.

Under cross examination he ad mited earlier that many of the orders he signed violated international law and the soldier's code. It was on that noe that the prosecution wound up its examination of him. Sir David Maxwell Fyfe, British prosecutor, accused Keitel of once responding, "I don't c a '• e a damn", when a general protested ' VRS "satisfied in your own mind" after a conference with Hitter and Himmler thai thc recaptured prisoners were going to be 'shot. "That is not correct," Keitel said. "But you will agree," Fyfe persisted, "that you thought there was a grave possibility that these men would be shot." "I had some feeling they were in danger of their lives," he admitted. o Lookouts 7 Manager Is * Precise Gent.

They arc dirty and uncared for and have no home training whatsoever. They do not even have the proper food. The parents are always on the go and the children sponge on the neighbors, always begging for food. The five-monlh- old baby is so filthy that it is nauseating. What can I do to rid myself of the pests? NEIGHBOR ANSWER: You can report the case to the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children and it will sec that the youngsters are belter taken care of. Possibly that may make the parents so mad that they will move out of the neighborhood. But people who permit themselves to be victimized, as you are deserve little sympathy. For if you had any courage and backbone, you would simply lock your sponging neighbors out of your house and tell them frankly that they are not welcome. When we are the victims of deadbcats, it is our own fault. Dear Miss Dix: I am a teen-age girl in love with a married man who has a sweet wife who believes in him. I have to slip around to go wilh him and I am afraid my mother or his wife will find out about it. He doesn't want me to go with anyone else. What can I do? I can't give him up and I can't have him. ANSWER: You can use a little common sense. And if you will add to that trying to follow the Golden Rule, you will have your problem solved in a jiffy. Your common sense will tell you that having an affair with a married man will ruin your life and is bound to end in disgrace. You are wasting your youth on a man who can t marry you and who will keep every other man from marrying you, and you will be left with nothing but bitter regrets for hav ing been such a fool. And the Golden Rule will tell you to treat other women's husbands as you would want them to Consolidation Continued from Page One on certain glaring weaknesses in Arkansas county government," it was staled in Ihe letter of transmittal, "and Ihe Council recommends that serious consideration be given the following: "1. Consolidation of Counties — Many Arkansas counties are too sin-all for efficient administration. Revenue is not sufficient to meet increasing demands for essential services. Consolidation into larger administrative units would provide for services which cannot now be adequately furnished by many of the smaller counties. "2. Classification of Counties — Under existing law all Arkansas counties have practically the same number of officers and thc same administrative set-up. The amount of work to be performed in smaller counties does not require the same number of offices needed by larger ones. Counties should be classified so that organizational cloth may be cut to fit the pattern. "3. Salary Schedules — A large' number of pur county offices at present are financed by fees. As a result there is little or no control over the expenditures of these offices. This system makes it impossible to properly budget county revenues -and-,expenditures. T.hus, adoption 1 .*' "of Isa'lary • sfhe'dulos jfc-r. all county officials would seem highly desirable. "4. Reassignment of Duties — In all but 13 Arkansas counties, the office of sheriff and tax collector are combined. Since the work is in no way related, it is suggested that the two be separated and the responsibility for tax collection be transferred to the county treasurer. "5. Revision of Asesssment and Collection Methods— A sludy of as-* sessmenls reveals lack of equality in properly valuations. In order to place thc burden of properly taxation on an equitable basis, th,e system must be revised. Also, too much time elapses between the assessment and the collection of property taxes. It is recommended that Ihey be assessed and collected in the same calendar year. "Some of thc changes suggested above can be made by legislative action; others would require con- slilutional amendments." It's Not Continued from Page One apartment — "flats," as they're known here.

Ramsey sponsored the proposal at the AEA council meeling here last week. Such a plan would eliminate necessity of filling.put a state income tax form and would reduce number of employes necessary in the state income tax division, Ramsev said. He said the state's income tax total last year based on 10 percent of federal'payments would have been approximately 10 million dollars compared to actual collections of around three million.

Coal Strike Nowhere Near a Settlement By United Press Two major strikes were ended today but a new threat rose in the shipbuilding induslry and no set tlemcnl was in sighl in the Week ol «, shutdown of soft coal miners. The Marine and Shipbuilding Workers (CIO) announced it has senl 30 day strike notices to Secretary of Labor Lewis Schwellen bach, because of shipbuilders' re fusal to comply wilh a wage award. A slrike of Ihis union would call out 75,000 workers in 18 plants on both coasts. Busses and trolleys in Detroit rolled for the first time in a week as 5,000 transit workers rclurned to duty Also Ihe Briggs Manufac tunng Co., Detroit, announced 13 men who had been idle because of a strike of 113 CIO truck drivers were back at work after drivers agreed to arbilrale their wage dis pule. Basis of a settlement was reached ' today in the Akron, O., strike of 450 CIO transil workers and early resumplion of slalled public transportation there was forecast. • Only one minor issue remained to be settled in the Inlernalional .Harvester walkout as negotiations were resumed in Washington. Sotlement .of the Delroil slrike reduced Ihe number of idle workers in dispules across Ihe counlrv close lo 700,000. Olher major de- velopmenls were: 1. Attempts to avert a threatened strike against the Cincinnati Gas & Electric Co. continued in Washington. 2. The National Labor Relalions Board announced it had granted bargaining rights to supervisory employes who were members of labor union auxiliaries. Coal mine operators hoped that the government would take a more active part in atlempls to setlle the nationwide strike of 400 000 soft coal miners. Government Conciliator Paul W. Fuller had played a passive role thus far in the showdown between Ihe induslry and John L. Lewis' Uniled Mine Workers, (AFL). Many operators, however, predicted that little progress would be made this week. They believed Lewis wanted more time to improve his bargaining position, who has yet to place specific demands on Ihe conference table. Operators admitted lhal he held Ihe slralegic inilialive. In Ihe Detroit transit strike, drivers manned their busses and streelcars at 4 a. m. (EST) to end the week-long walkout which deprived 2,000,0,00 residents of public transportation. Some drivers were anxious to return to work, and resumed service late yesterday. A decision to end the strike was reached at a mass meeting attended by about 2,000 of Ihe 5,200 strikers who approved .overwhelmingly acceptance of a 15- cent hourly wage increase. They also approved arbitration of an issue over pay for a 20-minute daily checkout period for drivers. The agreement was reached Saturday by union negotiators and representatives of the city-owned transit lines. In the International Harvester strike, which has tied up production in 10 of the company^ mid- western farm machinery plants for 78 days, negotialions on a new contract were scheduled to resume today.
