Most towns take prMe in their parks and are happy when tourists drop in to picnic, rest, swim or enjoy the scenery. We know of. few towns which tell the tourists about their parks. All should do so. That is, if they want outside visitors." Do we in Fayettevllle want outside vfi- itors to enjoy our parks, or are we maintaining the recreation spots simply for our own people? If we do extend invitations to those touring through our lovely country, why not see that some appropriate signs are' erected T Age, like distance, lends a charm.-- Oliver Wendell Holmes double The charm of a deed is its doing; the charm of a life is its living; the soul of the thing is the thought.-- Eugene Fitch Ware - » -- · Many Individuals have, like uncut diamonds, shining qualities beneath a rough exterior--Juvenal Human nature is not so much depraved as to hinder us from respecting goodness in .others, though we ourselves want it.

When this happen*, the red flag immediately goes up. This may be why the committee's chief unfinished builneis is a probe of the scandal- smellliif; alcohol tax unit. Because any real scrutiny of this agency, which dealt with the big whiskey companies, li sure to bubble-gum back in the face of Congressman Keogh. Among other things there is a case Involving the Gotham Liquor Company and Louis Pokrass; also a *.trange stock deal with the U. S. ambassador to Belgium, Myron Cowan, whereby Congressman Keogh made a profit of 112,000; also it's Interesting that the congressman has been in frequent touch with ex-Tax Collector Joe Nunan and Deputy Collector Dan Bollch even at the very time these two men were under investigation by the King committee. No winder Congressman Keogh w«s pulling wires Inside his own committee to drop its probe of tux frauds. Interesting clues In the case of the alcohol lax uiiit and Congressman Keogh are contained In '.'nc confidential diary of Caroll Mealey, ex- chlcl til the alcohol tax ult, who resigned under a cloud. This column has obtained a copV of this unpublished diary and it notes several visits with Keogh and nil buddy, Charles Patrick Clark, the lobbyist for Franco Spain. Clark Is the man w h , paid Congressman Keogh checks totaling 14,500 allegedly for handling a tax case, at a time when Keogh was trying to persuade Congress to grant a large loan to Spain. The Mealey diary shvwi that Lobbyist Clark and Congressman Keogh Invited the alcohol tax chief to various parties. On May 8, 1947, the diary has a notation: "Clark and Keogh party." Aguln on November IB, 1947, Mealey's diary notts: "Attended Chas. Clark purly at S p. m. 270.1 C St." Again, on March 2«, 1847, Mealey's unpublished diary notea: "Dinner--Chas Clark,. Con*. Keogh." Th.: confidential diary also shows that the congressman from Brooklyn either telephoned or Visited Mealty two or three times a week during this )rriod--which was more than 'any othtr congressman. When other congressmen were listed In the diary, the purpose of the visit was set forth. Sut the visits of Congressman Keogh were always mysteriously labeled "personal." The diary of the alcohol tax chief also shows thi-. between November and December, 19441, he had several telephone calls regarding the permit of the Gotham Liquor Company, of which Louis Pokrass is an owner. Some of the cill.i 'V«rt made by Pokrass himself. Pokraii had had black-market troubles when connected with the Hercules Products Company, and later was denied an alcohol permit for his Capiim Wine and Spirits Company. He fought this up to the Supreme Court and lost. Having lost, he turned around and tried to get an alcohol permit under a different name--the Gotham Llqi'or Company. It wal just at this time that Congretiman Keogh «nd Clark were Hiving parties for Alcohol Chief Mealey. Significantly, Commissioner Macley expedited the license for Pokrass and even put pressure on his New York office to spend up tht license. Aft while Commissioner Mealey and, the federal p'cohol tax unit gave Pokrass his-license, Governor Dewty'i office In the state of New York refused. They considered Pokfiis's record too smelly. . * * . * . It was alao at this time--when Congressman Ktofh was constantly talking to Commissioner M*alcy-4hat Kacfh profited from an interesting .lock deal. Mjmn Cowan, now ambassador to Belgium, purchased I7J.OOO of stock in the Major Liquor Distributing C o m p a n y from Congressman Keofh. Then, six months liter In the same year --1S47--the congressman bought it back from Ambassador Cowan at a price of only (60,000. Thus the congrtmnan mad* a profit of $12,000 on which he only had to pay a capital-gains tax. Significantly, Ambassador Cowan was an attorney for Pokrass.. Tht interesting thing is that during thp year IH7 the liquor business wai booming, and there was not particular reason why the stock value should have decreased $11,000 In six months. Ambassador Cowan, reached on the transatlantic telephone in Brussels by this writer, explained that he had told the stock btcaust he wat folnf into tht diplomatic service and did not think an ambassador should hold stock in a liquor company. Hi said he regretted the transaction btcauat he had lost money on it. - However, what some members of the King committee want to know is why this transaction occvrred when Ambassador Cowan was reported to be the attorney for Louis Fokrass, then having troubles with the alcohol tax unit. They also wonder why the transaction occurred when Congressman Keogh was making "personal" calls to the head of the alcohol tax unit and entertaining him at parties. Could It be, some committee members wonder, that the stock deal which netted Congressman Keogh a profit of $1J,000 in a brief six months, had something to do with congressional wire-pulling on behalf of Pokrass and the Gotham Liquor Company? * * * The Red Cross has had so much difficulty They Went Thatawsy" II Do It Every Time ---- By Jimmy Hatio ni TTHAT 5 STRIP, IS 71 X-R3OT AUJfi CONCRETE J. evr»«N.n» OF CARTOOMNG, 'SAMSOrJ, AUM OF STEEL'IS THE wii*»wr., _ ^ ^^^^ ^ Matter Of Fact ·I JOUTU AND BTEWAIT ALSOP gtttblf sufficient blood donations that i top OPS attorney, Mirvln Wllllg, has deviled · plin to make blood donations tax deductible.

How Time Flies Thirty Tears As* T*4ar (FayttttvlllC Daily Democrat, August 18, 1922) Frisco train number five was running eight hours behind scheduled time, according to reports received here at three o'clock this afternoon. The train was first reported four hours latt but the time was advanced to six and later to eight hours. A Chevrolet and a Studebakcr roadster collided last evening near the intersection of East and Meadow streets, bndly crippling both cars. Cne car was going south on East street with the second going north and in some manner the left front wheels of the cars were caught and torn off. Neither driver was injured in the crash. Twentr Yean Ago Tedar (Fayelteville Dally Democrat, August 18, 1832) With a big lead in their two-stage intercity tournament with the Sprlngdalc Country club, the Fayetteville Country club golfers will go to Sprlngdale Sunday afternoon to end 1932 arguments of links supremacy. A night blooming cereus, which last night had 14 blooms open at once, it proving an attraction at the home' of Mrs. Alfred Henbest. A large group of neighbors and friends gathered last night to watch the flower bloom. The plant which has been blooming for four years, had 20 buds this summer. Ten Yean Acs Tcdiy (Northwest Arkansas Times, August 18, 1942) Thursday has been designated as openlnf day for the Fayettevllle Junk Round-TJp and house wives and business men are asked to place junk at the curbs before that time.

As everyone knows, General Marshall stood almost in a father's relationship to General Eisenhower, from the hurnble beginnings to the splendid climax of General Eisenhower's military career. The foregoing gems of modern American eloquence, taken together with Eisenhower's relationship to Marshall, explain Eisenhower's re- uctance to offer Jenner and McCarthy a ride on his coat tails. The arguments that are being used to b r e a k down that reluctance amount to a plea that Eisenhower be untrue to himself. In particular, the Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois and Ohio leaders have been threatening the general with losing their states, unless he campaigns as a "real Republican." To do this, they say, he must em- arace all other Republicans, including even McCarthy and Jenner. VIH .CTEVE, Laurie and her father 1° had (on* fishing. Louis French had left his daughter and Steve to fish up tht river beside an old log. Steve sat with his hat tilted over his face ahd his head resting against the enormous trunk of an old sycamore tree. 'You know, Steve," Laurie said thoughtfully, "there's more to you than any man I've ever known. You're -- so different somehow." "I'll miss you. Laurie," Steve said. "You'll be leaving before long now I suppose." She looked at him, reclining against the tree trunk, probably half asleep under that old hat and neither knowing or ciring what turn the conversation took. "You won't miss me," she said tooe- "Yes I will, Laurie," he Insisted. There's more to you too than I ·vtr dreamed. This summer has bttn wonderful. It's going to be downright boring without you around." "You didn't mean thote things you s*ld that night, did you?" "What things?' "About my being a spoiled brat, and that I should go 'jack to my own kind. What did you mean-- ·my own kind'?" "Oh I don't know, Laurie. I've ttnufht about that night a lot of tlsnea since, and I'm wry I talked ta you that way. It It'l not too law, I apologise.* M* tilted his bat back and grinned at her.

Steve stood looking down at her, shaking his head, but there was a look in his eyes th»t brought Laurie scrambling to her feet and into his arms. Somewhere in the sycamore tree a bird flung out a few bright arpeggio* of song. Steve let her go. His face twisted a little. "It's all wrong, Laurie. You mustn't let yourself Imagine--" "That I'm In love with you?" she asked incredulously. "The whole thing's just impossible." ' 'What's Impossible about it? Steve, I know now that you're Ihe reason I came here this summer. I just had to come and couldn't marry Fletcher. I was crazy about you that summer -- that othtr summer--" "You were swett then, too, Laurie. And I want you to know that this summer has meant a lot to mt, except that I've realized that I was beginning to think too much of you. That's why I went on that canoe trip--to get myself, squared awny." "Steve 1 don't understand what you're trying to say." 'Just this Laurie." His volet turned grim suddenly. "U would bt wrong for us to cart too much about each other. It would never work. I'm older than you for one thing --10 yean, and that's too much. Besides, your world aad mine art two different places," "Tak* mt Into' your world," th* whlaptred. Shs (tit frt«ht*«*d at Sttvt's earne»tn««. "My world wouldn't bt tnoufh for you, Laurl*.

You've never had to do without anything." It was fantastic that she and Steve should be standing here say. ing these things to each other when all she wanted was for him to hold her, to feel his lips against hers, his arms about her. "You'd better go back to New York, Laurie." He -^id it heavily. You said once you didn't want to make a mistake like your mother did. Don't you realize this would be exactly the same sort of a mistake?" It came over her like thunder. He realiy wanted her to go back to New York. He didn't really love her. She bad thrown herself at him, and he felt terribly, terribly sorry tor htr because bt was the sort of a person who would. He was good and kind and tender and he hated to hurt her. "You see, Laurie," Steve went on, gently now. "Once you're back in New York this will all seem like a dream to you--a summer dream." "No." The word f*ll like a wounded bird between them. The sun went under a cloud and the world seemed dark. · · · ''-THIS Is something you'll get over, Laurie. It'a a crazy unreasonable thing. You know it aa well as I do." He to*k his forefinger and tipped up her chin and got out his handkerchief and daubed at her brimming eyes. Crazy or unreasonable, maybe, she thought, but she wouldn't ever get over it "If you thought anything at all of m*, Stevt, you couldn't send m* away." He was patient with her, as he would have been with on* of hit pupils In school.

Sht'd btt- ttr pull h*n*U t*|*th*r now. "Okay. If that'i rtally th* way you feel about It.* She reached out th* toe of a small ytlww sandal and tmtcntal out th* n UM sand Washington -- The anguishet word comes from Denver tha Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's toughest campaign problem has split the Republican high command right down the middle. The divisive problem is what to do about Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy ol Wisconsin, Sen. William Jenner of Indiana and the other Republicans of their peculiar ilk. Originally General Elsenhower planiied to solve this problem by a compromise. He would make a major speech, early in the campaign, simultaneously denouncing softness toward Communism in the administration and character assassination and smear tactics Including his own party. He would then refrain from visiting Indiana or Wisconsin, and woulc thus avoid sharing a platform with either McCarthy or Jenner the twin masters of the moderr political smear. This compromise plan has now been .upset by heavy pressure from the Indiana, Wisconsin, Ohio and Illinois Republican organizations, seconded by Arthur Summerfield, chairman of the Republican National Committee. General Eisenhower's speaking schedule already calls for a major appearance in Indiana in the second week of September; while an appearance, in Wisconsin is being considered for later in the month. The official word is being passed out that the general will endorse all Republican candidates in these states, Including Jenner and McCarthy. McCarthy and Jenner are test cases for a very special reason. A good many other Rcpublicn senatorial' and congressional candidates have persistently and venomously attacked almost everything General Eisenhower stands for. But McCarthy and Jenner have an unusual distinction. They have publicly described Gen. George C. Marshall a? a traitor to the United States. Jenner has told the Sencte that Marshall was "a living lie," "a front man for traitors" and a "co-conspirator of treason." In his famous Senate speech igainst Marshall, McCarthy wholly surpassed Jenner. The general may well be susceptible to this sort of pressure, but only because of his political inexperience. If he were more experienced, he would know the men who are now pressuring him are the same ones who'charged Gov, Thomas E. Dewcy with wilfully losing in 1948 because of his "me too" campaign. And General Eisenhower would also know that this story about Dewey is patent stuff 2nd nonsense. Take the three states where comparison is possible, Ohio, Illinois and Indiana. Dewey carried Indiana. He lost Illinois and Ohio by a little over 33,000 votes and a little over 7,000 votes respectively. Meanwhile, -in these same states, the venomously partisan, violently reactionary local Republican candidates ran hundreds of thousands of votes behind Dewcy. The margins ranged from 152,000 votes in Indiana, where the governorship was v.'on by the Democrat, Schrickcr, who is now challenging- Senator Jenner, lo 528,000 votes in Illinois, where the governorship was won by General Eisenhower's present opponent, Adlai Stevenson. The Indiana, Illinois and Ohio organizations went all out for their local candidates, and they did not lift a finger for Dewey. The inference is plain, that in these stales Dewey was dragged down by the unappetizing persons on the ticket with him. Add the fact that embracing Senators McCarthy and Jenner will cost General Eisenhower just about the whole huge independent vote of the West and East coasts. The course of political wisdom then clearly seems to coincide with Gen. Eisenhower's nalurM inclination. Such, at any rate, are the arguments now being made by Sen. James Duff of Pennsylvania and other leading Republicans who want General Eisenhower to "run as Dwiffht D. Eisenhower and no- 3ody else." This Republican faction does lot much care for the original Eisenhower compromise. They would have the general enter such states as Indiana and Wisconsin, aut conspicuously refuse to endorse McCarthy and Jenner. They 'would even risk losing the Senate this time. They argue that McCarthy, Jenner and company are much less likely to cooperate with Eisenhower than moderate Democrats. They say further that Gen- · eral Eisenhower's second rale problem after cleaning up Washington, is to clean up his own party. Above nil, they make the highly practical point that the general will imperil his victory by ignoring the moral issue presented by Jenner, McCarthy and the others like them. General Eisenhower- has evidently agreed already to make a speech in Indiana. What he will ssy in that speech -- how he will treat Jenner--in short which faction of his advisors he will listen to -- are probab}y ths biggest choices he has to make. In this campaign.
