Behold, how freat a matter t little fire kindlcth.- .ftmeg: 3:5 Not A War An article hi the Journal Of Commerce reports (hat by court definition, the Korean hostilities constitute at most an undeclared war. "This is the opinion of the Pennsylvania 8up«rior Court and means that life insurance companfes can not use the interpretation us /in excuse to avoir! paying benefits under certain war clauses In policies," the article says. The Superior Court handed down two opinions in separate cases, the Journal Of Commerce assert*. One policy covered * ·oldier killed in Kore* and the other a soldier killed in a train accident in this country. Both onsen involved policies of the Pennsylvania Mutual Life Insurance Company. A which was fn dispute declared: "In the event that the insured enRajes in military or naval service in t h e " time of war, the liability of the comnany ·hall be limited to return of the premiums paid unless the insured shall have previously secured from the company a permit to engage in such service." The court said it emphatically dis- · ·med with the Allegheny County Court which had found this was a politrcaly de- · elared war. Th« Korean "unpleasantness" may be ·n undeclared war, but relatives of those 113,668 buttle casualties are none the less affected. Widows of men killed fijrhtinir the Communists are without husbands, . «nd children of the victims are without fatheri, just as though It were the most declared war thfs nation has ever fought. And if it keeps on as it it now going, or get* even tcnigher, the number involved may qiltt poMlblv resell a record number of killed, wounded and Aliasing. Voters Turn Out Although the vote in Arkansas as a whole 1a*t Tuesday was litrhtcr than expected, the vote in Washington County and the various communHiei in the cotin- tv, was heavier than ordinarily is the c»se.

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round tt DREW MJ.MO* Wmhlnftoo--Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth, diufhter of Teddy and one of the rulers of Washington society, Is either felling benign or else hat fallen for thc Elienhower charm. After WlUkle was nominated, Alice remarked, "He ·prang from thc grass-roots of the country clubs of America." After Dcwcy was nominated, she cracked: "Hov/ can you vote for a man who looks like a bridegroom on a wedding cake?" Both men had defeated Mrs. I.onfworlh'i eloM friend, Bob Tafl. But of the man who de- "fciM.Tift for thc third time, Alice is more tolerant. "Naturally. I am sorry thai Bob didn't make It," she tells friends. "But that's the way it was and I am willing to accept it." She admitted that she watched Ihf- Eisenhower demonstration, "nut." she added, ··conven- tions aren't what they used lo be. Television is spoiling them." * * * Though the Democrats probably qot mire publicity focused on their hectic backstace wire- pulling than the Republicans, some nf thc latter'.i deals are just coming to the surf.UT. One of them, sure to be tlcnic-rl, shoris litfhl on why Arthur Summerfield of Michigan, long a vigorous Taft supporter, switched nvr-r n Elsenhower. Summerfield, n Chevrolet tle.-iU.-r, was under heavy pressure from General Motors to switch. But there was more to it thnn t h a t -according to thc slory told by Summcrficld's close friend, Congressman Jesse Wolcott of Michigan. Wolcott says that during the OOP discussion over seating the Southern delegate-:, he got a frantic phone call from Summerfield to come to Chicago Immediately. Arriving in Chicago, Surn- mcrflcld told him he wns being pressured by Tom Coleman, GOP lender-in Wisconsin and Taft's floor manager, to back-Taft. He was also under pressure from Scnalor Ferguson and Congressman Schafcr of Michigan, likewise vigorous Taft boosters. On the other hand, General Motors, for whom he operated a dealership, demanded thnt he support Eisenhower. * * * Therefore, he asked Wolcott to act as a buffer --a sort of mediator In deciding the seating of the Southern delegates. He also told Wolcott that, In return for supporting Ike. he had been promised the right to fill one spot in the Eisenhower cabinet, and he had chosen the Treasury Department. His choice for secretary of the treasury, he said, would be Congressman Wolcott. In relating this to friends. Wolcott has ::aid that he did not feel qualified secretary of the treasury, though he wss glad to help Sum- merffeld out, and did sn. Hlj help came wh»n Summerfield, after listening to the Georgia delegates present their case, remarked that he wanted his friend Con- Kreisman Wolcott to pass on thc merits of the matter. Whereupon Wolcott recommended a vole with thc Elsenhower group. This helped to take the heat off Summerfield. also showed that at least one prominent Michigan congressman wn in Summcrflcld's corner. In the end, It will be recalled that Summerfield twitched Michigan's big block of votes to Elsenhower, despite the fact that at thc Michigan utate convention he had worked to block Elsenhower. Note--Summerfield has already been rewarded by appointment as GOP na'tional chairman. It will be Interesting to see whether he gets the selection of a man for secretary of the treasury too. * * .it- While Governor Stcvonaon was hanging back on the Chicago draft, his sons were doing their best to push the draft. One day, youngest son John Fell Stevenson turned up at thc draft- Stevenson headquarters at thc Hilton Hotel wearing H "We Need Adlai Dntlly" button ,-is big as a flying saucer. Immediately Dr. Walter Johnson, University of Chicago professor who masterminded the draft, grabbed him by the arm, pulled him Into a room, and told him that If he wanted to upset the draft this was thc best way to do It. Young Stevenson deo.irlcd. Shortly thereafter, second son Bordcn Slevcn- son with some young friends, arrived, all wearing Stevenson buttons. This time. Johnson took them to the back stairway of the hotel and walked them most of* the way to the ground floor, for fear they would be seen by the press. "Can't we even come Into the hotel! 1 " asked one of the boys, "Only If you RO to Harriman or Russell headquarters," replied Johnson. "And only if you take off those buttons." He knew that If the newspapers showed thc Stevenson boys as part of the draft movement either the public would think it was- a phonv draft, or the governor would get mad and call the whole thing off. * * * The inside slory of the boggcd-down Korean truce talks is that we have been impaled on our own figures--figures that we issued boastfully at thc time we were capturing Communists and wanted to Impress thc enemy. We innounccd lo the world last December for instance, thai we held 20.699 Chinese But' now we have Inlri thc truce negotiators that all we can turn back is 6,«n.

Abdication is not, I think too ong a word to describe the way which the White House, the ( North Korean prisoners. Now, having announced them, they are stuck with those figures. The Reds won't believe anything else. Though an impression got out through the press that we were only 9,000 prisoners apart in reaching an agreement, this is not exactly true. At the start of the talks, we estimated that about 101,000 prisoners could be returned. After careful screening, however, we said only 72,000 could go back. Meanwhile, the Communists demanded the return of 116,000. Later we pushed our figure up to 85.000, while they brought their figure down tu 110,000. That's as close as we have ever come. While t'-Q Reds' offer of 110,000 was only 9,000 more than our original estimate of 101,000, it is still 27,000 more than we are willing to return. That's exactly where the truce talks are to- doy. Another full-dress session is scheduled for Sunday, August 3. * How Time Mies Thirty Yfars Aeo Today (Faycttcville Daily Democrat, August 1, 1922) The Chicago Tribune has recently issued a color supplement giving the automobile routes of the United States, and every state of the Union is traversed by one or more, on this map, with I'.'.e exception of Arkansas.

Katy's pretense at light licarledncss. and Ted's as well, vanished and thc fear was back. It stayed with them. It stayed and it grew until It touched even the dog Major. Major, though he lay with pawj outstretched toward the hearth, was uneasy, watchful without ever moving his magnificent head. "I don't like it, Katy," Ted said once, when the dog's ears made radar-like half circles. "Do you suppose someone Is prowling?" "Who would?" "Thc person who killed the Jerome woman." He put it so rn.ittor-0i-fiic.tly. Ledbetter'j deputy had said not lo depend too much on a doj and now Ted was warning her, too. '"The killer returning to the scene of the crime, Ted?" But Ted was watching Major. The big shepherd was on his feet, .'on silent guard that didn't waiver even when Katjr dropped a hand to hi head, "Shall I take * look around?* "No!"

Ted is afraid too, Kity thought But Ted has faith In me, he knows I didn't-She drew a sharp breath when there was a heavy-knuckled rap at the door. Don't answer it, Ted Don't gu! But she didn't cry it aloud, II was only her heart that was pleading. Of course they would answer the door. It was something one always did. An everyday occurrence, answering your door. She started to her feet "No, you don't, Katy." Ted's hand on her arm pulled her back.

There was a tiny, terrible silence, lunctuated by the turning of the tnob. "Oh. Hello!" "You sound relieved. Expecting someone else?" Dive! It was the voice of ave Argus. Katy remembered to ircathe again. "We didn't know what to ex- «ct," Ted admitted. "1 Imagine not." Then^as Raty went Into the hall, "HI, Katy Elmo.

"Well, I"--Deputy Argus hung his head--"1 did look around a little." 'In the dark? Why? What did you expect to find?" "One thing at a time, Ted. one at a time," Dave held up a remonstrating hand. "In the dark, yes, because I wanted to see if I eould follow that foot path--" "Dave!" Katy gasped. "--down from the gate like Agnes Jerome did." Dave Argus talked smoothly, as if Katy had not Interrupted at his mention of the scene of the crime. "I walked in the dark, without seeing where I was going." "You made It all right" Ted spoke, "So what?" "I made it, but It was pretty rough going. And 1 wasn't running away from anyone, cither." a · · ITATY took a deep, steadying breath. What was Deputy Sheriff Dave Argus trying lo say? It could be so important, yet the meaning seemed to escape her. 'Why did you need to know," she aiked. Dave Arfui teemed to be t.ik- ng his time about answering. The seconds of pause teemed Ilka minutes. And at Katy waited for the reply the remembered the tlanting morning lunllfht and the creek IppUnc over the rocka and Agnet fcrome'i body.
