Mrs. Margaret Brownfield for a discussion on the ArkajlMH Rural Community Improvement PfOgnnr. Graham P. Wright Of the Extension Service from Little Uock, Spoke at length on th* program and urged residents of this county who live in t h p rural sections to take part. This is the second yenr for this contest--last year the Oak Grove comrmmrly ne*r Springdale won first place in t h p . county, hut t h e Fajrview community in another part of Arkansas won the stnto contest. This year is going to ho different-that is, if those sectors which plan to t n k p part in t h e pros/rani t h i s year can t u r n the trick. They're gonig; to try. The contest, is sponsored by thp Agricultural Extension Service, in cooperation H'ith the Arkansas Press Association and the Arkansas Power nnd Light. Company. The .objective is "to s t i m u l a t e and entourage rural families of Arkansas lo work together in organteed groups so that a system of farm, homo and c o m m u n i t y management may be developed which will: "1. Develop and Improve a sound system of farming, resulting in higher incomes and standards of living; "2. Develop a home Hint is wholesome snd satisfying for each individual; "3. Create eommunily-mindedness .· -d sctlon of programs for aocial. economic, ·ducntional and religious' activities." The proftram is open to sny unincorporated community in Arkansas. Application for entry must lip made tn the c o u n t y Extension Service agpnts on or before July 3. At this recent session here the c o m m u n - ities represented were Oak Grove, Mineral Swings. Mount Comfort, Rlkins nnd Stony Point. Others are interested, the local county agents report. In the contest, farm improvement w i l l count 300 points, home improvement will count (ho same, and for c n m m u n r t y improvement 400 points will be possible, vith the ultimate scorinpr being set up on · basis of 1,000 point?. Thp c o m m u n i t y which scores the highest. Recording to t h p Votes of competent judges ncting on thp basis of records.submitted as part of thp contest, receives the top pi-fee O f $20(1 Three other state prizes, of .MOO, $50 and $26 will be given, and hi addition district prizes of $200, $100, $50 and $25 arp offered. Whether prizes are won are n u t , thp contest Is h e a l t h f u l to n c o m m u n i t y , and fhould_prove beneficial to those who ta|;p part sincerely and wholeheartedly. This program is a "natural" for this section of the state, and we believe thp communities taking part have a very fine chance of showing up so well in such n contest t h a t Ihe chance to win is high indeed. Arkansas may have the solution to t h e riots among Red prisoners in Korea. Turn them loose on Christmas furloughs and torgpt nbout t h e m . THE WASHINGTON -Go-Round Merry m r DREW PEAMOR Washington -- Congressman Manny C'eller'i much-heralded Investigation of baseball monopoly hns labored mightily and now hat brought forth a mouse. After rolling up 1,043 pages of testimony and exhibits to be released this week, and after hearing all sorts of witnesses, from Ty Cobb to Ford Prick, and from Pee Wee Heese of the Brooklyn Dodders tn Ned Garver of the St. l,ouls Browns, the congressional committee takes a firm stand only on about three things: 1. The Pacific Coast should not tit denied major league baseball. 2. Players who bolt to Mexico or an independent league should not be blacklisted. 3. A monopoly does exist in baseball, but Congress it not going to legislate against it. These conclusions are pretty well camouflaged in a mass of high-sounding, legalistic phrase*, in which the House Judiciary Committee d a i n t i l y avoids any legislative action. In brief, the committee report spotlights some glaring evils in the great American sport, but sidesteps doing anything about them. Chairman Celler and his colleagues frankly admit the Injustice of the notorious "reserve clause," sometimes called baseball's No. 1 evil. This enables a cluh owner to buy and sell players like chattels and hinds a player tn one team until the owner wants to release him for trading purposes. * * * '·In the past the reserve clause has been employed as a 'war measure' to fight the development of. competing leagues, sometimes at the expense of Individual players," says the Judiciary Cdmmittee report. In simple language this means that a ballplayer can be barred for life from organired American bnsebnll if he jumps tn a team in Mexico offering him more money. It ilsn means that the richer ball clubs can control the player market by mailing the highest offers to promising rookie players. "Despite the tremendous popular interest in baseball, the report continues, "publicity itself docs not afford » complete guarantee that the game will always be operated so as to serve the maximum public interest. "While the public has recognized the need for Important and a f f i r m a t i v e changes--such as a revision of the major league baseball map, which would have taker, place long ago if competition with baseball', only master-the mm In control of the game have either resisted or been unable to make desirable changes " However, the Brooklyn congressman and his legislators f l a t l y decide in favor nf the club owners by stating: "Professional baseball could not ' operate successfully and profitably without some form of reserve clause." On the other hand, the congressmen duck the question of exempting baseball from the an ! ru, ,,,,,,, Su , h exemption has been requested b ,e chin owner, who have viewed with alarm Justice Department moves to prosecute football garneT"" " '' adi ° ""'' TV rpports o( thcl ".

She was entertaining guests. She introduced her husband Thereon who was mixing cocktails, then after the Willings w«r« settled she demanded: "Who was that little man at Dr. Zimmer's? And what became of him?' The little man was named Jack nuggan," said Basil. "He died a few minutes after he left Dr Zimmer's." "Died?" R o s a m u n d ' s eyes rounded. "How?" "He was poisoned by some opl- .ile, probably codeine, whilo he was at Dr. Zlmmer's." "Hut no one there knew him except Dr. 7lmmer." "Even Dr. Zlmmer says he didn't know the man," returned Hasll, "He wnj Invited as n guest of Miss Shnw. Apparently she was the only person there who ever met him before." "And she died the snme night" This checked Rosamund for a mo- mtnt. She went on more slowly than utual. "Did the little man die before he had lime to tell you why he wjs using your name?" "H« told me nothing coherent. Ha limply muttered something abwt^ aom« place where no bird "That la fantastic! Rven on modern balllafltlda blrdi tint.

"Actually he was a private de fcctive," answered Basil. "Am there is a record in her checkbool of a check made nut to someon with the initials 'J. D.'. It seem likely that he was employed bj Miss Shaw under his own name. "Basil, have you any idea in th world why Miss Shaw should em lloy a private detective?" 'T'VE been hoping for a chance to ask you that," returned Basil. "You knew Miss Shaw. didn't." "So that's why you came to aee me so promptly!" Rosamund's mocking glance took in Oisela 'To your husband, I'm just an- ither witness. Or should I »ay lisped?" Basil laughed. "Would I bring llsela here if I thought that?" "Thank goodness you brought icr!" Rosamund had recovered ler UKlinl manner, nn air of mock- ng challenge. "Hut I haven't the aintest idea in the world why tiss Shaw should engage a prime detective. 1 renlly can't help ou at all." "I think you can," said Basil lildly. "There was n curious at- losphere at Dr. 7-immer's last Ight. Why were you so surprised o see me there? Why did you say ou always supposed I was on the ther side of the fence?" 'You nrc on the other ilde of Max Zimmer's fence." Was Rosa- Hind's answer a shade too glib? You're a .modified Freudian and e Is strictly Geslalt, I'm a po- ent of his," For the first time Basil looked Rosamund with a clinical ayt. e had some women patients who corned healthy hut none who ra- aled vitality at Rosamund did Was Zimmer one of those plausible quacks who specialize in neurotics with ample checking accounts? "Brinsley Shaw is a patient, too," said Basil. ' "Do Dr. Zimmer's parties usually include hia patients and their families?" ! '0h, yes," Rosamund answered readily. "That's another reason I was surprised to see you there. And that's why I said we were all supposed to know each other. Max believes a psychiatrist should study a patient in his normal social environment. He says biologists used lo itudy crois-sectioni of dead animals, but now they study animal tiaaue kept alive in serum and see life functioning in the fourth dimension of time and change. He thinks psychiatrists should study patients while they are functioning socially. So he gives weekly dinner, for us and our families and watches our responses to each other." "Who were the other patient, ast night beside, Brinsley and 'Ourself?" "The only other one I know about is Perdita Lawrence." "But one of the Canning, is irobably a patient?" "Of course. Only I don't know which. It's hard for a layman to ell." found himself wondering if neurotic temperament, in uch concentration might build ollective tension to the point of. xplosion. Could this situation induce Misi haw to engage a private detec- vc? A sick mind likes to keep P secret of it, slcknew. "Thai explain, one thing," h* aid aloud. "You were a rather oddly assorted company. An eld- rly Invalid like Mils Shaw, an ntellectual reclute like Stephen .awrence, and then a rather frlv- lou, pair like the Cannlnga." "And another rather frlvolou, air like the Yorket," added Rma- iiinrl gaily. "I shouldn't have bun urpriaed i meet you and Miw Shaw to- ether," he inuwtred.

I believed I loved him; now I'm not so sure. He told me had money to give me a good home and was working at a good job. I had complete confidence in him and believed every word. He told me these things when I first knew him--before he was sure of me. Now, when I know him better, I find out he doesn't have any Tioney, and isn't working at the iob he claimed he was. He has no family, so there's no background for me to use as a gauge of his stability. He has bought me a beautiful engagement ring, and has given me nice gifts, so J'm sure he means well, but 1 can't understand these early untruths. He is at present earning a good living-, but his job is not as ev- ailed a one as I was lert to he- licve. Am I right in believing that my confidence has been betrayed? MON'A K.'s. ' Answer: Very, very few people are completely honest, and evaluating; the seriousness of most untruths, we must search closely for the reason behind them. The range of lies runs from the small, white fib to dark treachery, and most folks are guilty, at least occasionally, of evading the truth in one degree or another between the two extremes. Of course, there is no moral or ethical condonation for any form of lying-, hut since it is one of the most commonplace of human weaknesses, we cannot tar all fibbers with the pitch of social ostracism. Bragging is a form of deception that yields very easily to analysis. j It is significant evidence of a need ; for understanding, sympathy or ] love. Ticking these essentials to a ! balanced emotional life, a person ! soon finds that a little boasting or bragging produces the desired response in another, anrt proceeds ! to work the weapon to death. Your- fiance was brought up without family ties, and never had the love and security that cornel from a happy home life. When he I met you and realized that you held the key to his future happi- ; ness, he was naturally bound to ' get and keep you by any means available. Can you judge him too j harshly for this human desire? . Now, since he is sure of you. the j necessity for deception has passed, ! and the truth has been laid j your feet. Probably the only I standard bv which your fiance has | been able to judge his fellow men is financial; consequently It became so important to him that he built himself up as a material suc- ce.sK in your eyes. Marrying- a man who has never known the warmth of 3 family produces many complications for a girl. She must teach him what most people have already learned --how to cre?.te a home, with all its component and complex relationships. If you lo\v your fiance enough '·to understand the reasons behind I 'lit apparently infantile bragging, I to make allowances for his ignor- jai'.ce of daily, fairily living, you : will doubtless reap a rich reward | in his appreciative response. You. i and von alone, can be the judge 'of that problem.
