Tliu commission was careful to Stipulate that the hydrogen bomb ;.was still in the "research" stage, 'not a completed weapon — bul Instill the combined impact of the rumors and the AEC announcement has been tremendous.

One .should have scant sympathy for loose-tongued sailors or soldiers servins on secret missions. They tare notoriously the weak spot in national defense.

Group Offers Tax Revision Suggestions LITTLE ROCK, The Joint odds are Russia will know its contents. The •fcdea that spies get their information from newspapers is preposterous. Rather, newspapers could get more news by interviewing spies. I'll give you a first-hand report from a naval censor to show you 1 know what I'm writing about. In September, 1943, Rear Admiral Glnsst'orcl spoke to the Southern Newspaper Publishers association convention in Hoi Springs, which 1 attended. Admiral Glassford was (j£4ellinK the heads of Southern ncws- " papers the inside story of our long naval retreat into the South Paci•_ fie before the superior forces oi Ihe Japanese. It was a classified ^report, none ot it to be published, nor arjy of the other things we. learned from navy men attending the 'samp meeting — but there is one thjnJ5 v I can tell you now for Ihe first lime. One of the naval censors"station- ,c. v d al. Houston, Texas, in civil life fa sub-editor for the Kansas City Star,' 'told •' me about the case of the crewmen. who were rescued when the Japs...sunk the ;Cruisj;r Houston. Somo"*q£ these boys lived in the Texas .city, and when they came home the newspapers interviewed them. As is customary in wartime, the galley proofs o£ all these interviews went to the Houston censorship ot'l'ice for clearance before ll fy publication. And in one of these stories a talkative sailor told' the whole world about our new "lifeline" lo the South Pacific, naming il island by island. Said the censor: "II that story had been published, or it that sailor's conversation or letter had happened to drop into traitorous hands, some secret short- wave transmitted here in our own United States would have put th< ( news into Tokyo by nightfall. And ' B 1 within a week's time Jap submarines would have been knocking off our supply ships on this new and supposedly secret route." Dr. George Emmelt Cannon, jcd 82, prominenl Southwest Arkansas physician and surgeon,.died about 3:30 p.m. Monday while burning brush at his farm between Hope and Columbus. Dr. Cannon and his son, Curtis, j were burning brush when Dr. Cannon apparently suffered a heatt attack and fell into one of the fires. When his son pulled him oul of the flames he was dead. He was badly burned but it was believed he died instantly after suffering a heart attack. He was born in 1870, near Ozan, in north Hempstead and graduated from Ouachita College with a BS Russian-Made Jets Shot Down Near Task Force WASHINGTON Iff) — The Navy reported today lhat Iwo Russian- made jel fighlors planes had been shol down al sea only 35 miles— jusl a tew seconds flying time— Irom U.

It placed the scene in tnc Sea of Japan, aboul 100 miles soulhcas; of Chongjin. It said Navy jcl pilols shot down Ihe two MIG-10's.

He started his praclice as a sawmill surgeon in Union Counly, near El Dorado, later worked at Jonesboro and Rochelle, La., with lumber 'firms. He practiced some three years at Magnolia before coming to Hope. In 1915 he built the Josephine Hospital of Hope, the first private owned hospital to be accredited in the State of Arkansas, Dr. and Mrs. Cannon built an infirmary and library building at Qua- chita College in 1948 In 1947 he and Mrs. Cannon built and donated Hempstead County Library building to the County and City of Hope. A very religious man, Dr. Can non was a member of the First Baptist Church of Hope. He founded the men's Service Class of that Church and was teacher for the oast 25 years. He was author of "Nights with Christ," a book concerning his experiences in the medical profession, published in 1950. Dr. Cannon took a big but silent part in many civic projects, contributing generously to all worthwhile undertakings. He was assist- 'i'hc Navy had few details ot the action bul was able lo report that four Panther jets flown by pilols of reseive squadron 781 from Las Alamilos, Calif., fought the battle near the task force late yesterday. One ot the American planes was hit during the encounter but •was" .unable to 'return to the "carrier Oriskany, floating home base for the squadron. One MTG pilot was seen bailing out. A recond Red plane was last seen in a steep spiral divo and smoking badly. A third M;iG broke oh the action after having been damaged. Agree on 2 Points The Joint Tax Revision Com- millce, holding Us tirsl meeting in Lllllc Rock Monday in an advisory capacity for Governor- elect Francis Cherry, agreed unanimously on two points: 1. Arkansas should gel rid ot ils clcclivc syslcm for tax assessors. 2. Taxes should be collected within the same calendar year Ihey are assessed . When debate bogged dosvn over a tentative proposal to centralize lax assessments in a Stale Tax Commission al Liltle Rock, Alex. H. Washburn, editor of Hope Star, proposed to Charlie Wilkins, commitlec director and chairman ot Ihe meeling, lhal the members be polled lo seo if there was unanimous agree- that Arkansas' clcclive syslcm for lax assessors had failed and the system ought to be changed. The judgment was unanimous. Mr. Washburn had said: "We will never get rid of the property tax scandal unlil we eliminale the elective assessor. The State Tax Commission is a negative approach to the problem, even if acceptable. Bul Iho county assessor shouldn't be elected. Because, if: he really did a good and impartial job he wouldn't be re-elected." Mr. Washburn suggested one possibility .might be the hiring of a lax assessor on a long-lerm basis by the other_ constitutional officers'of a county. But thi.s, he conceded, would require u constilulional amendment.

A union official said picket lines would be thrown up around the company's depots in Little Rock, Hot Springs and Texarkana today following the failure ot a last minute attempt to avert the strike yesterday. The employes, members of the AFL Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, voted last week to strike in support of their demands which include a 1 cent per driven mile wage increase for 46 drivers and a 42 cent an hour increase for six mechanics. The current scale is 5 cents a mile plus a cent a mile no accident bonus. Mechanics make $1.33 an hour. Union and company spokesmen said a contract negotiation meeting yesterday failed to bring about a settlement. Thirty buses on the company's run between Memphis and Tex- artcana by way of Little Rock and Hot Springs will be halted if the slrike is called on schedule, said Robey W. McClendon, Trail ways vice president and general manager. Almost all hope for a settlement was squelched last night by F.A. Purcell, BRT deputy president, who said: "We're standing pat on the strike deadline." for gelling more yevnuc. The prnpoals will be studied furt.:or by sub-commitlces composed of volunleer cilizcns. The Commiltec proposed that, "if additional revenue is needed. . consideration should be given to making this source of revenue stztc income tax more productive." The ruggestion said "Ihc personal income tax produces a relatively small amount of revenue.

The problem of the martini and the people who inhale martinis is one above the bouncaries of sc'- e ice, politics, race, age or sex. The flat dictum of many bartend- ets is: "They'll never have peace anywhere in the world so long as they allow martinis Congress ought to abolish them by law if possible — or by force if necessary." One eldtime bartender said: "You know when you serve a man or a woman an ordinary drink, you have some idea what It will do to them — and they have some idea, too. "But when I mix a martini for customer for the first time Ivvays have a sense of curiosity matter now well I thought cnew him before, I see a new side, o his character once he switche o martinis.

There is a growing conviction, however, among sound bourbon rye, Scotch or wine finaciers that the number of martini admirers s on the increase rather than the wane. Just why no one knows. The Republicans blame it on 20 years of Democratic rule. The Democrats suy it is a side manifestation of world-wide uneasiness. And ask, "Well, let's sec the Republicans solve it." The average hostess just knows the problem is there — and wishes it weren't. The fact all bartenders agree on is that as martini drinkers get wetter tney ask more and more for a drier mixture.
