Men ·nd women who own and operate newspapers throughout the state are gathered hers to combine their ideas and discuss their mutual problems, and will leave here to return home the wiser for having convened in session together. The press in America today stands in * unique place in history--the free American pr«s« has advantages, and responsibilities, not matched by nublications anywhere else in the world. The press is free In England, but is fettered by shortages and restrictions t h a t we in the U n t i e d States do not have. In this country the men and women who publish the newspapers ire at liberty to sav what thev think, to reiterate again and again ttieir ideas about anything on earth they choose to talk about. In some other parts of t h e world an editor might one t r m e disaerne with his nation's officials, but would be given no second such opportunity. Here, we are in reality free. This fact places upon the shoulders of those who publish the newspapers the re- uponslbilrty of not taking advantage of the situation; and of course, we of the f o u r t h estate think we are doing a grand job, taken as a wh,ole, of watching out for the people's best interests without using the freedoms as a means to personal or individual aggrandizement. The Arkansas press has a history of merit. Like Arkansans in general, newspapers in the state have a feeling of independence and take .quick exception to any effort to suppress or influence unduly-exception to the exertion of pressure in «ny form. This feeling among those who publish the newspapers of the state has helped Arkansas to progress. It is with much pleasure that the Northwest Arkansas Times greets the Arkansas Press Association in its annual summer session. Through whole-hearted cooperation of the University, which is providing ample snace and nuarters for various events, and firms and individuals in the city, the welcome mat h fully out. * Eisenhower says he opposed partitioning Germany.

Nancy, would be a handicap. The American people, chattered the gocsips. would never elect a president married to a British wife. A« the campaign has progressed, however, red-headed Nancy Kefauver has been one of her husband's biggest assets. She has worked night and day, traveled by plane, train and car, shaken hands, mingled at ladies' luncheons, srnrerl a hit everywhere. Whether she he British, Tennesseean or what, people have loved her. The fact is that Mrs. Kefauver is the daughter of a Scottish ship-engineer who helped design the battleship Hood and the Queen Mary. Her mother was American, and she met Kefauver when she returned lo Tennessee to visit her mother's family. After young Kefauver met her, he went to Scotland to pursue the romance and finally persuaded Nancy to marry him. The other day. Senator Russell of Georgia, whose campaign hasn't been progressing as well as Kefauver's, but who has a strong sense of humor as well as chivalry, was discussing his lagging campaign with friends. The subject came round to Mrs. Kefauver. "Yes." sighed bachelor Russell, "I guess what I need is a Nancy." * * * The only federal power commissioner who had the courage to stand up and vote against the natural gas lobby may be quietly axed by the lobby. He is Tom Buchanan, whom the president reappolnted as chairman of the Federal Power Commission in May, but is now the victim of a -quiet conspiracy by the gas. lobbyists and certain senators who have played into their hands. There Is good reason why the gas lobby is trying to block Buchanan. There's also good reason why housewives and all those who have to pay a gas bill at the end of the month should he for him. Buchanan vigorously fought the lobby In raising gas rates--and lost. Had he won. the price of gas would not face a 50 to 100 per cent increase as It does today. What happened was that President Truman vetoed the Kerr bill Introduced by Senator Kerr nf Oklahoma, which would have taken natural gas producers out from under federal regulation. But though Truman won this round against the gas companies, the Federal Power Commission then turned round and reversed his veto. One of those who led the reversal was none other than the president's old crony, ex-Sen, Mon Wallgren of Washington. And today it is a crony of Wallgren who is playing Into the hands of the Eas lobby hy holding up Buchanan's appointment as FPC chairman--namely. Senator Magnuson nf Washington, Democrat. Buchanan's appointment was sent to a sub- cnmmiHee of which Macnusnn is chairman-with O'Conor, Democrat of Maryland, am! Tnbey, Republican of New Hampshire, as the other two members. For almcst a month, however, this subcommittee has stalled. No meetings have been held and Buchanan's appointment has been left dangling. Tobey and O'Conor appear favorable 1o Chairman Buchanan, But Magnuson, close friend of ex-Senator Wallgren. has delayed. Strategy of the gas lobby Is to delay u n t i f t h e Senate adjourns for the convention. Then, after an expected Republican victory in November, a new FPC chairman cnulri be appointed who would be more amenable tn reason. Chairman Buchanan, who bucked the gas lobby, would be out in the cold. * * * The average American probably doesn't realize the effect abroad of the court decisions in the steel strike. Though the court decrees may have caused economic uncertainty here, they strengthened confidence in American democracy oversets. This writer has had reactions from various Europeans and Latin Americans expressing grett interest and appreciation of the fact thit a little-known U. S. district judge. David A. Pine, could step in and upset the seizure action of the powerful prcsidont of the United States. This was considered proof that we don't go in for dictators in t h e IT. S. A. "Your president not only listened to little Judge Pine." said one Latin American, "but sn did the Supreme Court. We now better understand how your democracy works." Taft observers cnnsldeVud it significant that the e-p.!y outsider to accompany Eisenhower on his Abilene trip was Tom Stevens, a Dowry man. They plan to use this with anti-Dewey Republicans to show who is the man really behind Ike ... Truth is that the man closest tn Ike is probably Gen. Lucius Clav. + *' * In the past, most medals in this country have gone to the military.
