New Question For Juries When the publfc learns that convicted slayers Hcntenccd 1 to terms .inj the? state prison system are freed witWn i ft* : years, will juries be nfere prone, to'hand ' out death sentences In murder trials? It very well could be. Within the'last month or two the People of Arkansas have learned that .three men sentenced to prison for slaying others are at large through action bv officials of the prison system. Knch o'f these men were sentenced after costly and fair trials, and after.,they;had;been found guilty by juries" made up of fclldw'cittxens These snme men have Tjeeri allowed to leave the prison farm without fanfare and without notice to officials in the counties where the crimes were committed. Won t such action by those in power lorce men and women who mnke up furies ponder the question: If we return a vcr- otct which calls for-a.prison sentence, will inesc men be back among us within a few short years? --^ - __-_ full of a lot of people who load the way--but where to? i most .successful people keep their ; t h o i r ,"",,,, pir work --others their work on H wc . j °l )t "i n to ° cIlc "P. we esteem l y: if 1S Iulu1 MS only that gives every thing Its value.-- Paine This Is the Way IMI Angeles--The governor of California was sitting In Sacramento's Sutler Club with Walter Jones of the Sacraniento.Bee when hl» onetlrne opponent on the Democratic ticket, Bob Kenny, walked In. . ' "Governor," said Kenny, "I've been conduct- Ing a Democratic underground for you for president. Every time an Eastern newspaperman interviews you, he comes to see me afterward and nsks: 'Wliat'i this fellow Warren really like? 1 "I tell them," continued Kenny, who Served fight years as Democratic attorney'general of California under Governor Warren, "that I went eight rounds with the guy and couldn't even lay a clove on him." ' ,. · . "Perhaps we ought to get a statement from Kenny endorsing you for.the nomination, governor," suggested Newsman Jones. "Oh no," good-naturedly protested Governor Warren, "I'm having a hard-enough time convincing the Republicans that I'm not a Demo- ' crat." Democrat Kenny, who Is a sincere admirer of Governor Warren, Republican, put his finger on the real reason why GOP bosses frown on Warren's nomination, and a|sp-,pn the reason why more realistic Republican leaders are coming round Jo the fact th»t,thc governor of California would be the surest shot to win for the GOP next November. For what Franklin Roosevelt advised his party In 1932--"to win we have to wean away Republican votes"--is even more true, in reverse, today. With heavy Democratic registrations built up during 20 years of Roosevelt-Truman rule, the Republicans must be able to pull Democratic voles to win, and Earl Warren Is one sure shot who can do so. When running .for governor in 1942, for -Instance, he no'led 400,000 Democratic votes. When he ran again Jn 1946, he pulled so many Democrats that they nominated him on the Democratic ticket. In 1950, despite the opposition of Jimmy Roosevelt, a popular and appealing candidate, Warren rolled up a lead of around 800,000 In a state that has 1,000,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans. . It sounds trite to say this, but the secret of Warren's success Is being an extremely good governor In a state that is extremely hard to govern. The Ingredients of that success con be summarized as follows: 1. A shrewd Instinct for avoiding executive mistakes. t. The (election of Irreproachable public servants, whether Republicans or Democrats. 3. An Intuitive sense of smell that steers him away from emotional issues. In u state.that has §een the rise and fall of funny-money, hnm-«rid-eggers, and all sorts of fringe movements, Warren has never jumped on a hallelujah bandwagon. Frequently it would have seemed good politics to do so. When he was a rising young politician In Oakland, the Ku Klux Klan swept the state like wildfire and . ninny · politician, with a stronger sense of expediency than wisdom, put on the pillow case Hut not Warren. ' ' Neither then or later has he gone In for emotional Issues. Some years ago a bandwagon rush' for old-age pensions-put Sheridan Downey in the Sehate--where lie promptly'forgot ail about ham-and-cggs. Warren shunned that bandwagon without any fanfare. Meanwhile he has gone quietly ahead working on old-age pensions until he has about the best record of any governor In curing for qldstcrs. When the rage for loyalty oaths came along, Warren also failed to lead the professional patriots and put his right hand on the Bible. Asked t. there would be a'purge of California employees, he replied: "No, we never hired any Reds in the first place." * * + The nearest Governor Wnrrcn ever came to skat ng on thin Ice wai when he championed a modified public-health bill. This made California doctors see red and Warren was accused of championing creeping Socialism. He has stuck to hla guns, however. The reason Is that when Warren was a boy, his father master car builder, was killed by a housebreaker at n ght and his mother was left with a large family and the difficulty of paying doctor's bills So the governor knows what it'« like to go without medical attention. He also had an experience with the Pacific Mutual Company when he once forgot to pay his health Insurance for one day Though overdue only one day, It took all the prestige of Warren's position, then attorney general of California, to get his Insurance policy reinstated. · ' Earl Warren's failure to appoint deserving Republican to state Jobf has caused anguish and recriminations In GOP ranks. Aftef the lean years under Democratic Governor Olsen, Call- fc.rnln Republicans looked forward to putting deserving cronies In cuihy posts, But unlike Trtimnn, Warren has passed them up. It Is said rather bitterly by some Republicans: Enrl Wnrrcn has never done n favor for a friend In. his life." That is not exactly true. Wnrrcn has done plenty of favors for friends, but they have to be meritorious friends, not merely personal friends This Is one reason why old-line GOP leaders throughout the nation view him with alarm They know that with Earl Warren In the White House the chance of getting their henchmen in A Column of ·y tOtifTA WlMtOHT · a postmasters, district attorneys and collectors of Internal revenue would be a lot slimmer than under Taft. And some of them, from present appearances would rather lose the election than change the bosses of the once Grand Old Party. Betuieti Ce^ Just when I thought we'd heard about the last of Sandy McTavish in Aberdeen, two new stories about him came to light . It seems Sandy was apprehended striding down Argyle street in hla unmentionables with his tartan plaid pants - over his arms. Halted by an officer of the low, he explained, "I'm lookingrfor the Aberdeen Free Press!" And later that very same day, Sandy shattered all precedent by refusing a cigarette offered by n reckless friend. "It's too cold to remove my gloves," pointed out Sandy, "and if there's one smell I canna stand, it's burning leather!" * * * .. A group of English scholars were being shown through Harkncss Hall at Yale. "What achitcctural style did they say this was 1 /" whls- IHircd the wife of one. "I'm not sure," was the dry answer, "but 1 think It was Reminiscence " * * * New Abe Lincoln s'tory via Carl Sandburg- Lincoln was told of a profound scholar whose books he had perused, "It may be doubted whether any man of our generation has plunged more deeply into the sacred fount of learning." ics, amended Lincoln, "or come un drier" * * * Joe Gilllgan'e contracting firm was famous for its ability to slap together a whole block front of snazzy looking (from the outside) ranch houses In less time than it took a builder of the old school to erect a chicken coop One morning, however, a foreman rushed up to Gilligan and shouted, "We just removed the scaffold- ing from the three new houses on "K" Street and they collapsed in a heap." Cilligan investigated, and turned on his foreman in a rage. "How often do I have to tell you ninnies," he bellowed, "never to remove the scaffolding till you've pul up the wallpaper?" ' It Is Heartening . The most heartening fact that has permeated my mind recently is this: "It is a fortunate fact that General Eisenhower, General Gruenther and Ffeld Marshal Montgomery, the BIG THREE . of the Atlantic Pact nations in supreme headquarters in Europe are intensely religious men." It Is recorded that William Penn in the old days said: "People who are not governed by God will he ruled by tyrants." I seemed to imbibe rest and consolation when I read where the Big Three are intensely religious men. Let us add our thanks and prayers for these men. It is also extremely ' fortunate that religion finds points of agreement, not discord. That religion enjoins peace and cooperation, and it is related that Genera! Eisenhower said gently, to a discouraged member of a small country "You may recall there was once only 12 apostles, humble, ordinary men with just one - w e a p o n , FAITH." Let us not forget, let us keep our faith burnished. I seemed to feel the throbbing of a saving grace as I read. To say it is fortunate is to speak more than mildly. We are- blessed, among nations for our .Godly men. Questions. And Answers 0--What was the historical significance of the Zimmerman Letter? A--While trouble was going on in Mexico in 1916, this letter was unearthed by British Intelligence and handed over to the U.S. State Department.

"You arc a fake Cota," he said, letting his arm drop. "You haven't got a thin on me and you know it. Exactl what should I come clean about Come on, say it Dr. Pellctier's big man, he can take it Ani frankly, I'm curious, too." Cota shrugged. "Surely you don't need me to tell yoi abou yourself," he said with a conll dcncc that shook both mca "Matter of fact, I don't think the FB needed my assistance cither. They have access to the Washington flies . . ." " W a s h i n g t o n flies?" Peter echoed. Cota sat down at his desk, moved a few papers, looked up He addressed Dr. Pelletier. "I see no reason for detaining you further, Doctor. I have nothing more to say, and I have a great deal if work to do. The hospital doesn't run Itself, you know. The problem of Dr. Surlnov's loyalty is In much more competent hands than my own. I am not responsible for his past nor am 1 interested In his future. Good day, please, gentlemen." Peter's lips clamped like a sprung trap. He felt Walter's glance and met It, expecting to find there commiseration at the rudeness of the dismissal. Instead, he saw worried questioning, II* turned and walked out of th* Met. He heard Walt«r's ht.rrylrw txnlod him In toe hall, Ml Walter's fingers tight on his arm "Peter, is ' there something yo should have told me before?" He shook his head dispiritedly '1 don't know. Walter," "Come to the office for a min utc. We can talk there." pETER followed Dr. Pelletie through the back entrance Int the consultation room. He sanl into a chair, absently flexed his fingers, made a fist, scrubbed the knuckles that had been held back from the superintendent's person The morning's expenditure 01 emotion had bought him nothinf but a soggy sense of defeat. He said, "I suppose you have to be nnocent to feel this guilty. It might even be safer to be guilty-at least you'd know when to throw your guard up." Walter lit a cigarette, sat swivd- ng in the desk chair. "What could he mean?" Peter went on, frowning. "The Civil Jbertics Union? That's not on the ubvcrsive list The N.A.A.C.P.-- int's still okay as far as I know. Vashington flics, the man says. When I was In college 1 remember sent S25 which was my entire ank account at the time to some panish Loyalist outfit Maybe hat puts me In the drawer marked premature anti-Fascist'. Do you ippose Cota could have tracked me that far back?" Walter smiled then. "If It's that ague, then forget It Cota had me vorricd there for a while. Listen, ven If there's some organisation ou joined that's now verboten, hey may discount it. Sam* thine appened to me. I had to be eared on this thing too, you now, I'd have sworn they could necomb my past and not come up Ith so much as a flake of dan- nitt. Then one night--funny how ou begin to remember things-that ctowaac* ptrtttl la nerve- racking--well, one night Stella tells me she remembers she sen a check in 1948 to some organization--Friends of the U.S.S.R. or some such name. She thought It wai for Russian children's relief but we looked it up on the attorney general's list, and there it is --a subversive outfit, a front. Can you imagine that? I tossed plenty don't think I didn't But if they did track it down my record musl have outweighed it." "It's a Joke," Peter said, snortr ing. "The country is screaming for scientists but it won't let them in :he laboratories to work. We're the most valued and most distrusted men in the country today. How can the government expect young men of intelligence and integrity to come into a profession where they're treated like crim- nals. You're not even granted a criminal's right of self-defense." 'THE door opened a few Inches and the s e c r e t a r y talked hrough the aperture. "Dr. Pellc- ler, the patients are standing all he way Into the hall. Will you be free to see them soon?" "Right away, »iy dear. Right way. I'll buzz you." Peter got up. "I'm sorry, Wal- w." If he's trying to frame you, I'll lell you right now he won't get way with It" Peter made no answer. Walter stood up, put out his hand. "Keep m* posted Peter." "Yup." And then, loath to let Peter go, elletier followed him through the wck door, flung his arm across his ouched shoulders. "Peter, you're oung and you're angry. I'm too d to be an angry man. But I beg ou to sit tight for a while. As nt as your conscience Is clear, m not worried.

It's a iradoxlcal situation, but there "Sure, I'll sit It out," Peter said. .*··· OtatteMi). ,.- Washington Lodge No. 1 My interest was stirred and my vanity pleased to receive from Mr. 0. E. Williams a pamphlet on the Washington {Lodge No. 1, Free and Accepted Masons, Fayetteville, Ark. This is a history of the oldest Masonic Lodge in Arkansas, and I belong to the stratum of humans who hold Masonic Lodges in high esteem. I really thank Mr. Williams for including me when sending; out this history of the oldest Masonic Lodge in Arkansas. In November, 1935, this chapter, No. 1 Washington Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons of Arkansas, observed the 100th anni"ersary and banquet. This is not the first lodge established In Arkansas, it is tlie loflge with theloiigett continuous existence .in' the state. When I first recall as a child in Missouri, it was the oldest and most respected org a n i z a t i q n apart from churches, in any area which I happened to know. That' prestige has not dimmed. He That Endureth Let me call your attention to Walter Lipprnarm's tribute to Harold Ickes in the Northwest Arkansas Times last week. To me it was beautiful. It was the sort of tribute one would be glad to live a long time and strive very vigorously to receive. The Sunday St. Louis Post-Dispatch recounts ' that Harold Ickes' last column "hits corruption." Quoting from it: "For, however soiled and shabby may be the upper crusts, the core of this people is yet sound and good." I bejfeve in this people, and I believe in Harold Ickes. May his tribe increase. I often think how blessed it is that some are sound and- courageous. It would be a gloomy spot were 'there- not some who who never give down. We Feed Jealousy ' · The more I contemplate and consider what this country does the more I am amaz-- ed and the more I feel that we be the target fqr a type of jealousy and exploitation. In viewing a picture and description of the Pentagon building recently, I was thrown overboard by the announcement that 32,000 persons operate in the confines of that matchless building. It's all beyond comprehension and assimilation, and we need not wonder that the other countries of the world consider us fantastic, fabulous and endless. So long as we control such sums and figures, so long must we function as the pot of gold. The love of money has never ceased to be the root of all evil. Dear Miss Dix: I married John, widower with three children. He !oes well at his prokssion, so money is no problem. He's a hard 'orlter and a good provider, but s self-centered, inconsiderate and elfish as far as I am concerned. \lthough I love him, there are 'mes when I'm humiliated at the 'ay he treats me. There's nothing e wouldn't do for his children or :mily, while I do all the housework and laundry and never have cent to my name. I never go to hairdresser, for I have no money, id look so shabby for want of othes I'm ashamed to go out at 11. What can I do? Suzzie V. Answer: I'aj afraid, Suzzie, that you share the fate of many second wives, namely, your husband married you simply to acquire a cheap housekeeper. This is one nf the pit- falls to consider" whenever a ' Widower with children courts a capable woman. If you don't have the respect of your husband, you surely won't get any irom his children. The minute they ara grown you'll be out of a job arid a younger woman will be ready to step into your shoes. Forestall that issue, and set out for yourself if you want any future at all. Screen Couple Reconciled Hollywood-OT-After six weeks of estrangement, Actor "'John Wayne and his wife, former Actress Esperanza Bauer, have been re.:onciled. The Waynes have been married six years.
