Ruling on the penalty was made by U.S. District Judge Eugene Rfce, according to the newspaper report. The story: Farmer Frank Turner told the court he raised only 36 bushels of peanut* and did not market them, but fed them to his hogs. He failed to file proper information with the Production Marketing Administration and later neglected to reply to a PMA request for a report on dbiposal of his peanut crop. PMA authorities pointed out that he could have raised the peanuts for hog feed without the penalty if he had filed the necessary information as re' quired. The marketing quota program assures : · base price for peanuts grown by the : farmer, but compels him to abide by the acreage quotas fixed by the Unfted Stales Department of Agriculture. The penalty assessed against Turner was on a rate of 6.4 cents per pound for the normal yield of the excess acreage he harvested. The ruling in the Turner case reaffirms, said PMA officials, thai marketing , quota procedures, as administered by the PMA committees, have the same effect as the federal law under which they are developed. The case won't be appealed, an attorney for the farmer said, because the appeal would cost more than the amount of the judgment. "Mr. Turner drdn'l answer the PMA's inquiry and as a result was held liable for the penalty. He is not a par- ,ticipant in the PMA and felt he did not come under its jurisdiction. That's why he ,did not make a written reply. He didn't · market his peanuts. He fed them to hfs livestock," said the lawyer. : The farmer -- an American farmer, mind you, snd one in a state neighboring Arkansas--is paying a penalty of more than $300 because he didnt fill out and mail in some, forms sent to him by a government agency with which he has no connection. How Many Voted? So far as we are able to determine, members of the stiite Agricultural Mobilization Committee, which asked the Department of Agriculture in Washington to declare Arkansas a disaster relief area (Washington County included, where the , farmers had decrded not to ask for this designation) is composed of members of a number of agricultural agencies including: Representatives of the Farmers Home Administration; of the Bureau of Animal Industry; of the Forest Service; of the Solicitor's Office; of the Federal Crop Insurance Corporatfon; of vocational agriculture; of the Soil Conservation Service, of the Agricultural Service: and several members of PMA committees over the state, plus head of the Production and Marketing Administration in Arkansas. It will be interesting to learn just how many of these members a c t u a l l y voted to place this state, including all its counties, in this category. THE WASHINGTON Merry- Go-Round ·r DHEW PEAMOM Washington--For about four months the Slate Department has been handling with Dictator Franco o( Spain regarding the proposed Spanish air and naval bases which Franco so R l i b l y promised over a year aso when he wanted American cash, and which he has reneged on ever since the c; was voted. Although France, England, Italy, Greece and Turkey have turned over their soil to American forces for air fields and naval bases, Franco continues to hold back--until he gets exactly his own terms. These terms Include ( 1 ) more U.S. dollars w i t h no strings attached; (2) modern tanks, planes and artillery for the Spanish Army which the U S. Army nreds primarily in Korea, second here at home, and t h i r d for the European Army. Meanwhile, Krart") has not even been w i l l - ing to gel rid of the fitrirt Spanish laws against foreign capital, which if abolished would i n v i t e American dollar investments in Spain by p r i v a t e enlerprise. The Slate Department has asked for the modification of these laws in partial return for U.S. government loans, but Franco has said no. U.S diplomats figure Ihitl one reason Franco Is so stubborn is because he knows he has pow- e r f u l friends In Washington and that the money for Spiiin already has been appropriated by Congress. Sinre he's going to get the money anyway, he undoubtedly figures there's no use giving naval hnses and airports In relurn for it. Among his friends are powerful Sen. Pat McCarran of Nevada and Charles P a t r i c k C l a r k , who is paid 575.000 a n n u a l l y to i n f l u e n c e congressmen on beh.ilf of Spain. McCarran once had the gall lo summon the head of the Export-Import Bank. Herbert Gaston, and put him on the griddle in front of the Spanish ambassador as to why he had not loaned money faster to Spain. * * * More recently, Senator McCarran proceeded to bawl out James Bonbrlght, the diplomat h a n d l i n g Spanish negotiations, d u r i n g secret hearings on the State Department's appropriation. Since McCarran sits on the subcommittee which decides how much money the State Department can get from Congress each year, h« could have a whip hand over policy. "Why Is II," McCarran , demanded of Bonbright, "that none of the $100,000.000 has been allocated to Spain? Nothing has been done for Spain out of the $100,000,000. not a dollar of it." "That was voted for economic, technical, and m i l i t a r y assistance in the discretion of the president," replied Bonbrlght at the secret hearing. "It has seemed to us that the use of these fvinds w i l l depend on our over-all m i l i t a r y requirements." "You are negotiating wilh Snain, are you not, for bases and ports?" snapped McCarran. "Those have been surveys, sir," said Bon- brlght. "They were surveys to see what the facilities were and generally to breik the ice " "How long does It take to find out?" thouted the senator from Nevada. "How long does it tnkc these studies to be made before you m a k e a move? Does it require a war to be started before you will do anything in Spain?" "I have heard that before, so I am just taking it with n grain of salt." grumbled the Nevadan. Then he snapped at Bonbright accusingly: "You rlo not seem to know much about it. any more than you know much about your department, from what I have listened to this morning." * * * McCarran also tried to blame President Truman's cool attitude toward Spain on the hapless witness. "Why i.t there no mention in the president's message at to Spain, do you know?" he demanded. "I do not know, sir," Bonbright shook his head. "Doei your Bureau of European Affairs have anything to do with the preparation of the president's statement relative to the Franco government in Spain?" McCarran pressed. "No, sir," said Bonbrlght. "Are you sure of that?" persisted the senator. "Absolutely, sir," replied Bonbright. * * * Having reached n dead end. McCarran hurtled off In another direction and demanded t h a t Spain be admitted into the North A t l a n t i c pact. But Bonbright threw cold water on the suggestion and again stirred up the senator's wrath. "I think the fact Is, sir," said Bonbrlght. "that the chances of getting Spain into the Atlantic pact now are bad." "Why?" bellowed McCarran "Is it because Great Britain does not want her In? Is that it?" "I t h i n k you will find many more countries . . ." Bonbright started to explain. But McCarran cut him short. "Great Britain wants to enjoy the trade of Spain," exploded the Ncvadan. "She is enjoying the trade of Spain In the amount of hundreds of millions of dollars and wants to keep us out. That is the princinal thing, is it not? Then ynu have a small contingent in France, of Spanish refugees who were run out of Spain-the Communists--who are f i g h t i n g the admission of Spain." * * it "I do not know any European country, sir, outside of Portugal, l h a t has indicated a f n v o i able a t t i t u d e toward inviting Spain in now," re- tovtorl BonbriRht. "The Concress of the United States has appropriated $10(1,000,000 to assist her economically, and she knows all that.

"Sir," spoke up Bonbright, "the Spanish Government, for one t h i n g , has taken the public position t h a t it dors not want to join the North A t l a n t i c treaty." This stopped the rumbling, raving McCarran short. "Arc you sure of that?" he demanded incredulously "Yes, sir," assured Bonbright. and he read a news dispatch quoting Spanish Foreign Minister Martin Atago directly. This left McCarran without a word to say. Hastily he changed the .subject. How Time Flies Thirty Years Ajo Today (Fnyctloville Daily Democrat. August 8. 1922) A resolution asking the city board of health to remove the signs now posted at the City Park and to substitute instead a card merely forbidding bathing In the lake so long as bathing is known to be unsafe, was adopted by the Chamber of Commerce last night. The park committee will send a sample of the lake water to Little nock for analysis. Rooms for bctxvccn 200 and 300 farmers who cannot be housed at University dormitories will he required by the Chamber of Commerce during Farmers Week. Cars will be required to meet arrivals who are expected to number about I,000. at the trains and to take them to their destinations; to convey them to and from the barbecue to be given ;it the University farm; and to take them back and forth from their rooms in town to the University during the course.

In the market for old manuscripts and let| ters? Well, you arc just about too late to buy this one which now is in the possession of Prof. S. C. Dellinger, curator of the University of Arkansas museum. It is an original letter written February 16, 1862, by General Buckner to General' Grant. It wa sto be disposed of here today by the owner, R. E. Raymond of Eureka Springs who has owned it since the death four years ago of Dr. Cotton, Union veteran, to whom it has been handed down since it came into his family's hands from General Grant. Ten Years Ago Today (Northwest Arkansas Times, August 8, 1942) Because of the possible shortage of transportation and the possible heavy burden on central market handling facilities, it is urged the Arkansas farmers "push" their spring pigs for early marketing. With an average grape crop in the Ozark region, a below average crop in the eastern states, and with an exceedingly high consumer demand, Arkansas growers may expect fairly good prices this fall, says Roy Sellers, University of Arkansas college of agriculture. Although conditions arc fair to favorable for the Arkansas grapes, the grape crop in the United States as a whole seems to warrant only reasonable prices to the consumer. Questions And Answers Q--Ts King Arthur's Round Table still in existence? A--The table supposedly used is in a castle at Winchester, England. Q--Does frost produce the brilliant colors in autumn leaves? A--Autumn leaf color is not dependent on frost, though that, often hastens the coloring process. The beautiful fall colors of leaves are caused when the water supply is cut off from the leaves. Green chlorophyll then disappears and red, orange and yellow pigments become visible.

Tccl · heard and ran toward the bnrn. .'"He's alive." Tod watched the falmost imperceptible rise and fall jof Peter Donnell's chest. Then Ted looked at her. "You were running away, Katy." Katy gripped her hysteria. "I was going for help, Ted." 1 "Sure, Katy," he replied, but with the same skepticism that had been in Johnny Jerome's voice ,that morning. "Jt just might work :at that. You could tell them--" I "Ted Jordan, I did not shoot iMr. Donnell. Nor kill Agnes Jer- 'ome. She was coming to tell mo Iwho killed Chris. She knew why iChris went out that night." ; A thought struck Katy. Why [did Chris go out? She grasped the · idea befort it escaped her. "Somc- 'onc must have called. Someone lhe knew. J was asleep. I wouldn't have heard the phone!'Maybe the icnll came from Marty's and Agnes 'remembered!" f Ted shook his head. "It's a good | try, Knty. If you hadn't shot ·Donnell--" "Ted," Knty said quietly, "please go for Dave." "I'll help you, Katy." "What do you mean?" "To get away. You had n good start when I came up," Ted's laugh was nasty. "And lenve Mr. Donnell to die?" Knty reeled AS a thought struck , her. So many things fell into ;plnce. "You shot him, TecU" i "I knew you knew." 1 She sow the bitter sardonic grin that lighted Ted's fnce, the deliberate, yet swift, move of hli h»nd and the gun that was In U, "Your suicide. Katy, will explain no much," he said. "No!" i "Oh yen, Katy. t wax going (o kill you last night--" She was fighting for time. "Sure," he admitted it. "I was coming back--after you said you wouldn't KO out with me but I go 1 the idea Argus intended to hang around." "Why did you kill Mr. Murphy? And Chris?" Ted Jordan laughed at tier, "The old man because he found me with his safe open. There had lo be someone to take the rap and Chris would come if 1 told him Murphy had had a stroke.** Knty's lungs felt as if she would never breathe again. Major, her dog, was behind Ted, half- crouched, uncertain. }le didn't understand this treachery. "Major!" she screamed. "Get him!" Ted whirled, surprised, as the dog sprang at him. Tlierc was a wild shot, and pandemonium broke loose. The barn seemed filled with Sheriff Ledbet- tcr, Dave, Johnny Jerome, and Stale Troopers. · · * TT was noon and after, when Dave Argus came back from town, where Ted's confession had boon recorded. They sat before the apple wood fire In the living room. "There it Is. Jordan hart a good job, the men at the factory liked him, but you never know about guys like that, I guess." "Agnes Jerome knew. How. Dave?" Ted had not boasted of being found out, he hnd been proud only of his cunning. Ted hung around Marty*!." Katy knew lhat and there was nothing wrong in it. Dave went on, "Thnl night Chris and Link Murphy were shot, he was there. Moody. Jumpy. Even before he went out. When he came back, late, just before closing time, he was quiet. Tense, like he was wait- ng for Mmcoric. Agnrx kidded him about a girl--Johnny told me this," m Mittotd to enoiain, "And Ut«r, Agnes got to thinking. Sne~fcnew Chris, bought her groceries from him, and she liked you because you had been nice to Johnny in school. So she got to a s k i n g question! around--" "And Ted found out, of course. 1 * Dave nodded. "He was--under surveillance, as Ledbetter puts it, from the first." Katy thought. She knew they had questioned Ted, she knew Ted had opportunity to cut the telephone wires, that he hung out at Marty's and therefore undoubtedly knew Agnes Jerome rather well. "You're too loyal to people you love." Dave dropped a hand to Major's head and began to rub his ears. "Ted didn't trust you. He thought you knew more than you did." I don't love Ted. I n-never did, but when Chris was killed I had to trust someone!" The cry wai wrenched from her. "And Ted was johnny-on-the- spot." Dave Argus watched Major move out from under his caressing iiand and go to lay his head in Katy's lap. · · * 1TATY buried her face in Major 1 * rv thick scruff. When she looked up, Dave was standing, his hands outstretched toward the fire, hit long lean back to her. "Katy," he said without turning, "When this thing is over, Katy, when you've forgotten--" ; When he didn't go on, *ht s l i p p e d out of her chnir. She ·' :ouched his elbow. "When I've-- , forgotten, Dave?" ' "That I'm the guy who talked dbetter into using you as bait-l f wax scared when Johnny cam* i and then Em called and said you , were trying to find Ted. Darling, f he had hurt you-M His arms' were around her, his f a c e wa! buried In her hnlr. "Do you think," he whispered, moments later, "darling, do you hink Major w o u l d let me kiss fOU?" Katy looked down. Major's head rested on paws outstretched toward the fire. Sht turned to Dave. "Why dont you Lafcc a long chance, dear?" - B7 WALTCB UPFMANN Officials in Washington as well as in Paris ore being rather touchy in the negotiations about the amount of the American subsidy to the French armament industry. They are acting as men do when they quarrel about a small matter because they are worrying about a much bigger one. These officials know that this is only the beginning of a series of very difficult negotiations not only with France but also with Great Britain, for which the American public is not yet prepared. Our two principal allies are gravely over-extended. They cannot raise the money and he men for all the military commitments which the three guvern- nents have agreed upon. The officials know this, and naturally enough they dread the issue which will soon have to be met. For in meeting them it will be necessary to make hard- decisions, assume new responsibilities, and to look forward not to a re- [ renchment but to an expansion of I iur ow contribution to the fclobal | alliance. Everyone concerned has been loping to put of/, until after elec- ion the horrid day when the work of the Three Wise Men will have to be done all over again by three wiser and sadder men. The Democrats would like to winter of J953. The basic British policy, therefore, is to wait -- it is to stretch out everything that can be stretched out -- not merely their own rearmament, not only the hard problems of meeting or of reducing their military engagements in Germany and in the Middle East, but also the critical question of how they are to become financially solvent in .the same economic world as that in which we are so mightily preponderant. The French have not waited, probably because they could not wait, to begin raising the big issues until our government Iz once again in working order. French governments are not 11 r o n g enough to do what the British goverment is doing -- to hold tne hot problems in their hands and to keep blowing on them so that ( .hey do not ignite. But the British government is certainly not getting stronger from having to temporize with so many great difficulties, hoping only to muddle through until next spring. The problems which are being put off turn on the fact that Britain cannot carry the burden of rearmament as agreed to at Lisbon, the British military contribution in Germany, the British forces required in the Middle East, and the Malayan War; that France , cannot carry the burden of rearm- nde along during the campaign · amcnl on lhe Usbon Eche dule, the giving the impression that the| THLO-Chinese War, and the main- structure they have put together; tenallce of the French pos ii; 0 n in is now a going concern, menaced only by the Republican isolationists. And Gen. Eisenhower would find it easier to live with the Taft wing of his party if it appeared that the cost of his foreign policy in men and in money had passed its peak and was now lo go down. icing The British are managing their affairs so as to put off the big negotiations until after the elections. They know that there is no one North Africa. We here shall be faced with decisions on how to reduce the British and the French commitments -- in the last analysis by t a k i n g over some of them ourselves or trying to liquidate some of them by diplomacy. We cannot count on all the global commitments -- as they stand now -- being met by Britain and France through 1953. That shadow hangs over the election campaign. It may be that the candidates can be spared the burden of having to i ue.\ tvuuvv Lna 1 . u n r i u is n\j MJIC , oe spared Ulc uuiueii vi u«vjug iu over here now with whom U i c y j f a c c the problem that will be can negotiate, -.hat there will be-nosed for the United States. But no one until November, and that the new measures cannot go to it is a safe bet that the President- elect will be facing them even be- Congress much before the late! fore he is inaugurated.

When it comes to hair styles if her mother doesn't' like it, she has it cut, regardless of what Sandra says.

It is just as necessary for her to teach Sandra to think for herelf as it is to keep her well nourished.

The girl may need guidance, but never, never should she be made to wear clothing that is entirely selected by someone else. relatives, such as yourself, might bring the matter of dtughter's growing up to her attention. There are several magazines published today devoted expressly to the styles, and living, of teen-agers. Perhaps you could give Sandra a subscription to one of them.
