An official of the Brewers Society says Frenchmen and Americans cannot understand why it should be illegal to drink at 4 p. m. hut all right in most places at 6 p. m. The present discussion was touched off by a court order which closed Churchill's, a glittering club in swank Mayfair, where persons who could afford a guinea *2.B4 initiation fee could drink up to 2:30 a. m. Some policemen disguised as tourists managed to buy drinks after t h n t hour. Now Churchill's two bands are silent, and $50,000 worth of equipment may have to be turned into just another restaurant. Expreu Wants Law Changed Ixjr Reavcrbr^ok's Daily Express commented: "A west end club is struck off for persistently selling drinks after licensing hours. Fair enough. "There can be no sympathy with law-breakers. As the law stands, it must bo obeyed. But what a fantastic, foolish law it is. Why should not a citizen be able to let a drink when he wants one? . . . "In this year before the coronation London should be gaining a reputation as the perfect host, not as a dreary wet blanket on simple enjoyment." T»rli»ment provided that pubs --the man in the street's "club"-may sell drinks eight hours a day, but specified that somewhere in the middle of this legal drinking day there must be a pause--with doors locked--of two hours. Puln Clou at Interval* Licensing authorities of various communities spot the two blackcd- out hours to suit themselves, with the result that the thirsty visitor often is frustrated jurt when he wants a beer. "Drinking clubs" are something else. These help the'home folks but arc of less use to a visitor who doesn't stay long enough to adjust himself to the customs of the natives. To drink in a club you must be a member and carry a card signed and dated by the honorary secretary, an official who in most cases is hardly to be distinguished from a bartender. Police license the clubs and in negotiation with the "honorary secretary" adjust a schedule of drink- ig hours regarded suitable for he community. The club doesn't' Russian Writers In A Tizzy; Tastes In Literature Of People, Politburo Differ Bjr WILLIAM L. RYAN New York-(*)-There's a spook over the Kremlin.

Baseball is a pretty lame sport for the spectator who doesn't care which team wins. And it's much the same way in politics, where mustering the proper Interest Is d i f f i c u l t for those who don't have a favorite candidate. This department has been having trouble finding a favorite candidate for the Democratic nomination for president just, we might suspect, as others around our community were doing. But thanks to the Democratic State Committee, we got a candidate last weekend. That would be Arkansas' Senator J. w: Fulbright, of course and while we're at it we might well extend congratula- Ihe Democratic State :e on adding a distinguished name to the list of those who will receive votes in the national convention to be held in Chicago next month. Senator Fulbright has made not the slightest move to secure me nomination and t h e r e has been no organized drive to push his candidacy. This means t h a t he will be on the list of "favorite son" candidates and not in the group making serious bids to win the nomination, whicii includes just tions to Committ in the wide-open convention which is ahead for the Democrats. And that conceivably could include a swing to Senator Fulbright, who now can be listed only as a favorite son candidate. That is, at least, a hope which we can cling to a month before the delegates are due to gather in Chicago. John Pruniski, Jr. North Little Rock Times Prairie Grove E. W. Baugh, owner of the Prairie Grove Canning plant, has opened the plant. On Tuesday and Wednesday 835 crates of cultivated blackberries were canned. Baugh will handle the yield from approximately 550 acres of tomatoes, employing 60 to 70 ' hands. The plant will operate until October 15. The W.S.C.S. of the Methodist :hurch held its June meeting at the home of Mrs. D. N. McCormick once considered heir-apparent to sutlin, had just cooked up a kettle of artistic stew which Sovie writers never really digested ant which now is giving them an acute bellyache. Today there is a raging "discussion" in the Soviet press about playwrights and novelists. It seems they are in a rut dug for them by Bhdanov before he died. The "discussion" in the party press, both in the USSR and the satellite countries, must have the writers dizzy. In the several months of this "discussion," Communist writers have been told- CrlUeiim Conlradiet*rj Their plays and novels do not have enough conflict. They pay "too much attention to internal contradictions." They depict negative characters nstead of positive ones. They do not expose and ridicule negative characters. They avoid themes of '"criticism and self-criticism." They depict Soviet characters i "formalists" and in other uncomplimentary ways and there is 'oo much caricature. There is too little caricature. There is too little attention to he role of Soviet industry in the "life of the new Socialist man." There is too much attention to technological matters, thus causing the human characters to be buried. I of the past. There is too little attention to the role of Russia in the history of the Eastern world. Not enough attention is paid to depicting "the struggle for the Communist future." There is not enough romance and lovcmaking in plays and novels. Playwrights and novelists are guilty of "unbolshevist cowardice" in avoiding "debatable topics." There are not enough plays. There are too many plays. Writers Scared Stiff What it all amounts to is this: All Soviet artists and ^writers are scared stiff, and now the Zhdanov line is boomeranging. Just after the war Zhdanov and others in the Politburo decided] that the millions of Red Army! soldeirs who had gone aboard had I seen too much of the world for the good of the USSR, and the jarty line demanded immediately i he production of stereotyped' works depicting the Soviet Union as the most glorious place under the sun. There is too much admiration Since the Soviet system knew no peer in human history, there could be no inner conflict. The loviet writer and playwright was lard put to it to find conflicts for lis works. If he was smart, he idn't try very hard. Those that did got the boot in the famed ultural purge which Zhdanov taged between 1946 and 1943. Not being allowed to think, the intelligentsia was caught in a rather tight spot. It was ordered to look only to the Communist party for guidance, and the party had a way of being confusing. In short, stereotyped characters were the order of the day. This was all right with the party, but the Soviet public be- CONGRATULATIONS to Mr. Mrs. Louis Bromley on .? the Opening of the MECCA CAFE Electrical Equipment and Wiring Installed by Pendleton Electric Co.

In a year when the Democrats are likely to have no little trouble in deriding on a nominee, it must be considered nothing less than an adverse circumstance that docs not place Senator FulbriRht right in the thick of the runnin.s. Senator Fulbright's entire career in Congress has been marked by the highest type of service to the public of Arkansas and the nation as a whole.

The Kremlin's experts found themselves mouse-trapped. They fumed, but neither writers nor critics would take chances with introducing "conflicts."' The wrong conflict might conflict with the party line. They stuck to safe' things, like denouncing bureaucrats and praising fine, upstanding young Communists. Quake Felt In Talpeh Taipeh-(/P)-A sharp earthquake shook Taipeh today. Buildings shuddered, windows rattled and hanging lights swayed crazily with the quake. Many persons rushed into the streets. The name "Gypsy" is a corruption of "Egyptian," but there seems to be no evidence that the people had any special connection with Egypt. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. L. F.
