Farm agencies have helped, business men have helped, those who dwell in the rural areas have helped, and our csnoclxl thanks go to the county agents and their staffs, fcrid to 'the Soil Conservation Service em- ploye^. As remarked on the cover page of this edition, it Is impossible to cover thoroughly the farm activities In Northwest Arkansas and get the facts in an edition this size. But w£ do believe the stories and pictures contained in this edition show to eome extent the work that is being done on the farms of Washington, Benlon and Madison counties, and the progress that has been made. In my humble opinion fearlessness is the first thing indispensable before we couia achieve anything permanent and real.-- Gandhi. THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round BT DREW PEARSON ' Washington--My old Irlcnri .llmmic Byrnes, the much-loved governor of South Carolina, hs» released a series of letters between himself and President Truman which puts mo right In the middle. In /ad, I am a f r a i d that a column of mln«, written several years ago. helped to touch off the current Truman-Byrnes hansel. One of the Truman letters to Byrnes, published l:day, contains the Trumanesquc references lo me. This Is not exactly news. To make It news, Mr. Truman would have to fay something nice abnut me. That would be news. In this letter he (ells Byrnes: "1 don't read Mr. Pearson or listen to him. 1 don't think he ever told Ihe (ruth Intentionally." Part of this letter was published by me In a column on December 17. 1940, which makes t h a t part of !t even less news today. However, what now has become definite news Is whether Truman was dissatisfied with Byrnes as mercury nf state, and made lite so difficult lor him that lie eventually got out. Today. Trumnn claim." t h a t Byrnes was a poor secretory of slate, and tells how, after the Moscow conference around Christmas of ]!Hft, he summoned Byrnes to the yacht Wllllamshiirg and read him a tough memo bawling him out for falling lo keep him informed on what happened · at Moscow. This memo read in part: "I received no communication from you while you were in Moscow . , . The protocol was not submitted to me ... The communique was released before I saw It . . . I do not Intend to turn .over the complete authority of the president nor to forego the president's prerogative to make the final decision . . ." Secrelary Byrnes, however, says that no such memo was ever read to him. lie denied, even in the face of the published text of t h e . memo In the recent biography of President Truman, "Mr. President." * * + Because of this flat, emphatic contradiction of facts, the American public would like to know who is right. I have known Jimmle Byrnes since he was a member of the House of Representatives. I have known him as a senator, a member of the Supreme Court, war,- and as secretary nf slate. Many times 1 have paid tribute lo his greai qualities, and I don't like to differ w'llh him now. Bui, though Mr. Truman says I never "tell the truth Intentionally." here is one case where It might pay Mr. Truman lo read the Merry-Go-nound. Because my columns written during and afler the Moscow conference support him rather than Byrnes. For instance, on December 23, 10-15, while Byrnes was still In Moscow, I reported on the radio: "President Truman is not happy over the fact that his secretary of Plate, .limmle Byrnes, has sent only two brief reports on his talks in Moscow." A column written after the Moscow conference gives further details on the president's peeve against Byrnes. It reported: "He (Truman) resented the fact t h a t Byrnes operated as a one-man team. The president had almost nothing lo say about foreign policy. Jlmmic had Ihe hsh't of playing diplomacy by ear. A master musician, he didn't worry about accompanists. '·Truman objected to this so vigorously that he almost fired his secretary of state. .lust afer Byrnes returned from the Moscow conference, he announced, even before he cabled a full report lo the president, that he would give a radio report to the American people. "Truman was furious. Summoning Byrnes aboard the yacht Wlllltimshurg. the president w»s all set for a showdown. The showdown ncv- - er developed. Though Byrnes received some ·- -caustic criticism from Admiral Leahy for yield. Ing In the Tlusslanj, Truman finally fell for Jlm- mlc's plausible explanation and agreed lo let him go ahead. "Immedletely a f l e r Ihe tlnre-un, Truman sent a cable In General Marshall asking him to be secretary of state . . . Significantly, Truman sent the cable through the War Department's secret code, not the State Department's, and Byrnes never knew about the message until some weeks later." * * * The above column excerpts indirale that both Byrnes and Truman may be partly right In Ibeir current dispute over who fired whom. In brief, Truman was unhappy wilh Byrnes, wanted to fire him. but never did so. Perhaps also, Truman prepared the critical memo now published in the hook "Mr. President," but. as I Indicated above, never actually read it to Byrnes. At any rale, another Merry-Gn-Bound column gives further details regarding the bad blood between the two men Immediately after the Moscow conference. "At one time." I wrote, "Byrnes cabled (from Moscow) 'tell Maud (Mrs. Byrnes) that my cold Is better,' But he cabled little or no information to Truman. "What got Truman particularly irked was that the final protocol signed at Moscow was broadcast by the Moscow radio before Byrnes cabled II to the State Department. The president, who bad flown to Independence, Mo., read the final results in the morning papers. "Truman was further Irked when Byrnes, flying back, sent a message to Bill Bcnton, assistant secretary of slate, telling him to arrange a radio broadcast In which Byrnes would report to the American people. "Knowing that Truman was irked, Acheson (then undersecretary of state) hinted to Byrnes that it would he wise to report to the president before going on the air. Truman, however, had gone down the Potomac on the Williamsbtirg. This made (he secretary of state highly indignant and led In a heated argument between The Tree That Bears the Fruits of Free Enterprise They'll Do It Every Time P-RBHT HERE VMS /«.L A SW/4MP"-US KIDS 05CW CATCH BOOWDOC HCRE-THC SW1A4.MIM HOLE MI46 OWR THERE WH6RE THE ULV RXD IS NOW /NO WHERE THE FIFTH Kssfe.mssSri TO HOLLER 1X1 JUST SOHlM LET THIS ONE TDOCTTDIHEK^; IMk*^.

In the end, the secretary of state flew down the Potomac lo sec Truman, got stranded by bad weather, and became f u r t h e r annoyed when Achesnn Implied he hadn't reported f u l l y on the Moscow proceedings. "To setlle Ihe argument. Acheson had a complete set o[ the telegrams he had sent Byrnes, and the replies Byrnes had sent him, placed before Truman, so Truman could, judge for himself." Of course, President Truman says I never "tell the truth intentionally," but those are the news reports I wrote nt the time Ihe news was breaking. And, though personally I'd prefer to side w i t h Jimrnie Byrnes in this argument, what I've written is already in the newspaper libraries of the nation and iian't be changed. (Faycttevillo Daily Democrat, April 18, 1(122) If 1,0119 adult rats, now dead in the anti-rat crusade being carried on by the Chamber of Commerce, had been allowed to live, how many children would they have had by now, and how mucii destructive rat population of Fnycttoville have been increased? It is hoped that the campaign is carried on until at least 2,000 rates have lost their lives. City Park Lake h;is boon drained, cleaned mid refilled ready for summer swimmers and biialing parties, and the park will open Thursday of this week, weather permitting. New shrubbery has been planted, old shrubbery has been trimmed and additional flowers have been planted. The chute and boats have been repaired and new spring boards put in. Twenty Years Ago Today (Faycttuvlilc Daily Democrat, April 18, 1932) Junior garden clubs have been organized for colored children, every child in school belonging, to one of the six clubs with a total member- in giving plots for the gnrdsns. Special prizes will be offered for this section of town and it also is planned to have a program nt which living Christmas trees will be planted on the church grounds. A market association was organized last night with work to begin in a few days and further announcements made. The market association is a result of agitation along this line from the Workers association. Ten Years A»o Today (Northwest Arkansas Times, April 18, 1942) Three new units of the Arkansas League of Women Voters are being organized in the stale, the Harrison league being sponsored by the Fay- otteville I.CHRUC find leagues at Augusta and Russellville by file Little Rock league. Plans, on which Washington county libraries will serve as war information centers, were drawn up at the monthly librarians training class at the courthouse Friday. One service of the war information program, librarians were told, will he packages of pamphlets and booklets sent each month by the government for distribution to readers. These packages include posters and vital current information on the war and the duties of the citizens during wartime.

Questions And Answers Q_Whal Is the origin of the baseball term "southpaw"? A--This term was coined by a sports writer when the playing fields wore laid out from west lo east.

The block was lined with early morning shoppers and the store fronts were filled with merchandise. Young mothers pushed baby strollers along the sidewalks, and George Kendall decided that small town? were so much more Informal than cities and everywhere he looked there was a decided spirit of warm friendliness. He s«w bare less and $2 house- dresses, mud - spattered overalls nnd ruddy-faced farmers. There was a stream of small stores, two theaters and the street forked at the end of the block, forming » crude circle. The elrele, with Ita lawn, Ihe little, green benches and A statue In the center, wns presumably a public park. Me took It all in with one long, nwecp- Ing glance and at once he was stirred by * deep nostalgia. "Have you decided where you're taking me?" Verna Denton «»ld suddenly. "First, I'm going lo see If we ;can rent a ear somewhere." i They had little trouble finding · direction* for reaching the nearest 'ear rental agency. Thirty minuten later, Kendall turned the ignition key of * HMt sedan and the long black car rolled! oul of the garage and onto the street, "Where to now?" Vcrna asked. ·Back to the hotel." "Why there?" ] "I've got to put on some kind of a disguise." "What for?" "Well just in ease I can't buy. this guy otT, which i? plan No. 1. 1 might have lo use plan No. 2 and 1 don't want him to know I was the same person who tried plan No. 1." "Clear as mud," she said, rolling down the window, "and what, may I nsk. is plan No. 2?" "You'll see." · · · VT/-HEN George Kendall came out of the Seneca Springs Hotel, he looked more like Groucho Marx. He was wearing a fake mustache, dark, bone-rimmed ilasses and a long, black cigar. Vcrna walked behind him. "You look horrible," she said, climbing In behind the driver's scat, "and I don't see why you want me to drive." "We might have to make a quick gclawoy," he explained myslcri- ouslr. "You dldnt tell mo we were gonnn rob a bank, 1 forgot my tommygun." "Don'l net stupid. Even If It becomes you." He slammed the door. "Well," he said, after a pause, "can you make the ear go, or arc we going to sit here all day?" "Where tiv, dearie?" ".lusi Mart driving," he said. "We've got 10 find this gymnasium that Chief Big Bear operates. It's a small town, so we shouldn't have loo much trouble finding the place." They drove down the main drag, circled the park and retraced their path, coming hack on the other aide of the street "Trj one of the side streets," ·Cendall suggested. She turned eft at the next block, then right, then left, then right again, finally mrning onto a street named Pine. "There it is." she said, pointing icr finger. "That large white Building near the corner." The doorway was inscribed with the word "GYMNASIUM." "What makes you think that that's the same one that Chief Big I3car operates?" Kendall asked. "The statues, dope." "The statues?" "And you call yourself a detective." She pulled into the curb. « · · CJUDDENLY, George saw what she meant. A cement stairway led to the front door of the building, nnd at the top of the steps, one on each side of the doorway, were two small statues of Indians. Each Indian faced the other, and each held what appeared to bf an upraised tomahawk. "How clever," Kendall growled. "Elementary, my dear Kendall," the clrl quipped. "Elementary." "This Is where 1 get off," he said. "While I'm inside, you tun the car around, and for gosh sakes, keep the motor running." "Say. what's inside that gym that you're so worried about?" she asked. "I'm not even sure myself, but If Mr. Sutworth was right, they could be gangsters, and if you don't already know, I'm not wearing any artillery. Couldn't find my gun permit." "Gosh Jakes, be careful then. How much are you gonna offer him?" "I don't know yet. I'll have to kind of feel him cut first." Ht started across the street, pufllni furiously on the cigar, wondering w h a t diplomatic approaek k* would use on Chief Alg Bear. (T. He CMtlM*4) like to see me more active socially. Audrey May Answer: To overcome acute self- consciousness such as you have is not easy, but you do have in your favor the fact that you are young, apparently have many opportunities to get among people and have a naturally friendly spirit. Many other young mothers get into the same spot; they spend Ihe child- rearing years totally isolated from the rest of the world, then feel terror-stricken at the thought of crawling out of the shell. Howver, I assure you, it's the initial tep that hurts most. Once you et out among people and find new how friendly "and tinder- landing they arc, your sociabili- y will assert itself. Take The Plunge Unfortunately, no one can guide rai in that first step. The Very tl.em. As you make new friends, Ihe circle of acquaintances naturally grows and its expansion will put an end to your seclusion. Develop a hobby; study it in a university extension course, or at a special school. The interest that has developed in the last few years in oil painting and ceramics has seen some fine work produced by people who never suspected they had an iota of talent in these fields. Classwork, too, provides a common interest that makes conversation a natural thing, rather than a form of torture. Producing a work of art yourself will also contribute a sense of. achievement that ran overcome your feeling of inferiority.
