Opponents of the measure, during a week of often bitter debate, , called it harsh, unduly restrictive and s i m i l a r to Nazi racial ideology The bill now goes to conferenc w i t h the House, which passed s i m i l a r measure last month, 206 to 68. The Senate passed it on voice vote. 1 The bill as passed by the Sen n t e includes these provisions: 1. It would retain the presen immigrant quota system, based on U.S. population makeup in 1920. 2. It would increase slightly the number of immigrants eligible for admission each year. 3. Naturalization laws would be revised. 4. Immigrants with needed skills would get preferential treatment. 5. Bars against Asiatics would be lifted, but strict limits would be imposed upon the number of Asiatics who may enter the country- The level of public morals Is low. U n f o r t u n a t e l y , the good example is not set in Washington The President is victimized by his friends, bu a false sense of loyalty prevents him from moving f'orth- 1 right against them. His reluctance condones wrongdoing. Leadership in both parties is weak, because it Is consistently attuned to the next election, not to what is best for the public welfare. In fact, public morals are low because politics at oil levels is played at a historic low. The- one is the coadjutor of the other. Yet, we strut Ihe earth telling everybody else to look at us and ! sec democracy in fairest flower--I and please copy; we'll foot the bill. We wonder, for instance, what Pravria will have to say about the 90 West Point cadets. The time is here for moral re, zencration. West Point is just one j item in the sad chronology. The ' Roman Empire fell, not because it was overwhelmed from without but because it decayed from within. If this is an appeal for a return lo the day-by-day practice of old time religion, and respect for God's moral law. so be it. When the moral fabric of a nation begins to unravel, it is lime to do some patching before the entire garment is gone. The cause and effect of tliis deterioration nationally w i l l be issues in next year's prcsidenial campaign. Miss Yogler To Speak At Red Cross Meeting Miss Frances M. Vogler.

Dlckion Phont 513 |Independent To Run Against Gathright Pine Bluff, Ark.-m - Harold Flowers, a Pine Bluff Negro at- lorney, says he will oppose former Jefferson Counly Rep. Morrcl a Good-Samaritan came easy lo: Anthony C. Adams, a »42-a-week messenger-handyman whose hear was as big as his boss' bank roll When Adams appeared at his favorite saloon on Archer Avenue the boys would starl whooping il up. Adams (The Colonel) always would pick up Ihe lab. His iavern oals agreed Adams was a good- time guy. And, it was disclosed H Felony Court yesterday, Adams was overly generous away from the bar-- wilh his employer's funds--to some of his friends. Prosecutors James A. Brown and William Brumlik toid Judge Charles S. Dougherty thai Adams over a Iwo-year period had spent and given away $34,300. The total may be higher, they said. Adams, 43 and a bachelor, was in courl on a forgery charge. He worked in the office of William Wood Prince, Jr., presidenl of Ihe Union Slock Yards and Transit Company. He look care of many of Prince's personal matters and had access to company vouchers to draw the money. The prosecutors said Adams ypuld make out a voucher to a friend and would forge Prince's name on it. A company employe then would make out Ihe check and give il to Adams. Adams, the prosecutors said, apparently spenl lillle of the money on himself, turned over his $42 wee'fly pay check to his mother and she gave him $10 a week spending money. "I played Santa Claus with the money," Adams was quoled by 3rown and Brumlik. They said he lad told his drinking companions ic was a $2,000-a-month engineer and held the rank of colonel in Ihe Air Force in World War II. Adams, lowever, has been employed al he stock yards for 25 years. The proseculors said lhal once Adams gave nearly $10,000 lo a aloonkeeper "because your kids like it much better if you ixed up the house." Another friend, a union official, 'as given $9,650 as a friendly ges- ure because Adams didn't Ihink i was well dressed. Another union official, the rosecutors said, was given $5,000 lo pay on a morlgage on his home and $5,000 for an operation. Brown said Adams was arrested after fellow . employes became suspicious. He was released on $10,000 bond and Ihe forgery case conlinued to June 20. Brown, however, said he would present the case to the Grand Jury. What Others Say Should Slow 'Em Down Vanderbilt University has come up with what sounds like the soundest antidote for the rash of dormitory "raiding" that's hit the male segment (of the American college population. If the "Vandy" treatment doesn't stop such infantile behavior, it should, if adopted by other colleges, chill the boys lo a slowdown. The Vanderbilt 'ormula consists of simply denying participants in the "panty raids" of their stalus as sludents n good standing. The net effect at that, of course, is lo make them eligible for Ihe draft The armed services rightly brag of their abilily to take the boy and return him eventually as a man. The juvenile conduct that's "leing demonstrated on American campuses proves thai ihere's a greal field for such missionary] work. In fact, the "panty raiders" j themselves have produced the! ... ..^. ..i,,, ^uuut.v nep. morrei iucniaci\t;a nave jnuuuccu me Gathright for Senate Post No. 2 of i strongesl argumenl yel offered on the 20lh dislricl nexl November.| behalf of compulsory mililary .
