Dr. Well's mission was fulfilled by April 18-18,! when .-ill Important medical posi* ! lions wore finally in the nonds of th: Communists. Various accusations have been made against Dr. Weil in relation to Cardinal Mlndszcnty, who hail, been drugged or medically "treated" In order to obtain n confession. Thm-i" has been no statement In denial of the participation of the Hungarian Minister 10 the United States In this otitrug.;. How- i-vcr, the record has been established that he was the one who appointed the "experts" who carried out the criminal treatment, which was nn opi-ratlcm on the Cardinal's brain. An Hungarian jourmilist who since then escaped to the West declared in a nows- papcr article shortly after his es- c;ipe that It wns Dr. Weil who handled the electric device usu.-tl in the course of this brain operation performed on tho victims of the various political trials, among them Cardinal Minds/.enty. There hits been no confirmation or denial nf this report. It is impossible to ignore the repetition of Dr. Emil Weil's name in connection with the Mindszcnty outrage, and it is up to nim to prove them untrue. He was awarded th<; "Kossuth Prize," which is the highest award of the Communist regime. Why Dr. Emil Weil, who hus never been in the diplomatic service, should have been appointed Minister to the United States, is not clear; yet, ho has been hero about two years.

II, 1*2* HOPE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, DECEMBER $, 1952 Margaret Culkin Banning, novel- took the same position this newspaper holds when she appeared Wednesday before the Gainings House Committee which is investigating questionable books and magazines. The Associated Press reported under a Washington dateline ol December 4: At the outset committee members qualified Mrs. Banning as an expert witness because of her research for an article entitled "Filth on the Newsstands," published in the October issue of Reader's Digest . . . As steps toward a cleanup, Mrs. Banning proposed: Self- censorship by the publishing industry, stricter enforcement of laws ayainst obscene literature, and an aroused community opinion. • jf t "Political censorship, wheth- '' er it is local, state, or federal, is not the answer," she said. It is disturbing to every informed citizen when federal lawmakers start debating the right of private citizens to print this or that. We already have laws covering ob-| sccnity. On the pretext that the laws we now have aren't being enforced some sadly misinformed people arc running to our congressmen for still more laws. That is 'in why we have the Gathings Committee — .and this whole business is pretty sad. Because what we are talking about here is the No. 1 freedom of all the people: To print or say what they like, subject only to the laws of libel, slander, and obscenity. And you can't have just a little state censorship any more than you can fight whatj General MacArthur called "a limited war." *,' To show you how censorship works — sometimes even the voluntary censorship of a church which depends on no law of the state or nation — let me cite you a case right here in Hope. Back in the 1930's a motion picture came to the old Saenger theater under the name "So This Is Africa." It was a Columbia Pictures production starring the comedy team of Wheeler & Woolsey. ,-^j But I didn't think it was funny. ' • In fact I wrote in this newspaper the following day that it was the dirtiest picture I had ever seen — and I exercised the seldom-used right of a newspaper owner to order the Wheeler & Woolsey name barred from our advertising columns. I was puzzled by the fact that most people who saw the picture here thought I was overly excited. Nevertheless I exercised a judg- '•f.mcnt based on a wide acquaintance With literature, the stage, and the movies. Now there was gathering about this same time a voluntary nationwide censorship group known as the Catholic League of Decency. Nine months after I wrote and published my own report the Lea gue issued a list of the 10 most indecent pictures of the year — and No. 1 on the list was none *tt,other than "So This Is Africa." *^' Working among their own church members the Catholic League performed a good and worth-while service. Even so, the League blackballed "The Miracle" about a year ago, and when an effort was made to bar its showing in the East by police order the exhibitors went to court. The United States Supreme Court ruled for the exhibitors, holding that in this instance the Leauge did not claim the pic- * ture was indecent, but objected to it on theological grounds. The fact that it was a Catholic group is beside the point. Protes tants given censorship powers would have fallen irjto error just 85 inevitably. And I do give the Catholics credit for many years voluntary policing of the films, /beginning with "So This Is Africa." Incidentally, that picture cook" ed the comedy team of Wheeler !& Woolsey. If you don't believe in the power of local discussion and voluntary censorship let me point out to you that once upon a time Wheeler & Woolsey starred in that triumph of all movie musicals, "Rio Rita' r- and then let their talent slip until the public ran them off the screen. One Sentenced for Bigamy, Court Adjourns Circuit Judge C. R. Huic in a special adjourned day' of the Hemp stead Circuit Court held Thursday afternoon sentenced Lee Ernest Smith to three years in the penitentiary for Bigamy and one year in the penitentiary for aband onmcnt of two minor children. In 1945 Smith married Dorothy Black and two small children were born to this marriage. Without the formality of a divorce and after he had abandoned his first family in 1951 he married Florence Bcnton. One child was born to this union. Then in March, 1952, Smith left and went to Portland, Oregon. He did not in any way support either o£ his wives or any'ol his children thereafter. Deputy Sheriff Allen Shipp recently returned him to the Hempstead County Jail after he was arrested in Portland at the request of Sheriff Claud Sulton on informa- tions Tiled in the Circuit Clerk's office against him by Prosecuting Attorney G. W. Lobkadoo. The sentence of one year was the maximum that Judge Huic could give Smith on this charge despite the fact that his two children ol His first marriage had been for a considerable period of time draw ing Aid for Dependent Children through the Hempstead County Wei Care. Judge-elect Lyle Brown, Mr. Lookadoo, and his deputy, Roycc Weisenbcrgcr, arc very hopeful that the 1953 General Assembly will greatly strengthen the present Statutes pertaining to the abandonment of minor children. The Prosecuting Attorney's office in Hempstead County is now working with almost one hundred cases of abandonment, most ot whom involve instances where the minor children of able-bodied men are Welfare recipients.'Despite the full cooperation of the Hempstead County Welfare office and tfTe- Hempstead County Sheriff's office the present ineffective Arkansas Laws pertaining to the abandonment of minor children makes effective law enforcement almost impossible. In the 1951 General Assembly the Hempstead County delegation in the Legislature worked hard to improve these Statutes, and Sen. Crow and Rep. Fcild have promised their full cooperation in 1953. In addition Judge Huie dismissed several old cases where the defendants were already in the Arkansas, Texas or Florida penitentiaries and two abandonment cases where the husband and wife had reunited. Judge Huic also announced that there would be no term of the Hempstead County Circuit Court December 8 and that the jury was not to report until notified further The Mason-Dixon line, surveyed in 1766, is still the traditional boun dary between North and South' in the United States.

At Hope High School 4-H Club meeting Thursday afternoon Frank Iin McLarty, local Ford dealer, presented for Ford Motor Company a set of two miniature statues to Don Ray Brown, alternate state winner of the Arkansas 4-H Club achievement award. The proposed Arkansas 4-H Clubs Awards Program for 1953 was discussed with the 4-H Club group by County Agent Oliver L. Adams. The awards program has definite rules of procedure that are fair and provide u possibility of success at different levels of progress. Satisfaction in the activity itself and the desire to train others is sought in each part of the 4-H awards program. The club members were urged to select a definite 4-H Club program, and to get it underway at once. Members with field crops demonstrations should get soil snm pics during December for testing so that recommendations may be available. Dairy heifers and beef calves should be selected at an early date if the right kind ot cattle are to be shown next fall. Th« Atioclattd Pmi I, Audit BiiKfu of A*.

Charles C. Killingsworth, ' installed as chairman by President Truman when Archibald Cox angrily resigned yesterday, told a news conference that file President's coal wage decision "has undeniably added to our difficulties," It was Mr. Truman's reversal of the WSB, which aproved only $1.30 Of.,a.nc.gptiAtr>.d ^.90 dajty,A:jjfl#!, in*crease for miners, that caused Cox's departure.

Boxes Set Up for Mail to Santa Claus In order to make the necessary mail connections for letters to Santa Claus from the children of the Hope area, the Retail Merchants have installecl two mail boxes specifically for mailing stations for Santa Claus letters. One box is located on the Firsl National Bank corner and the other one is on the Citizen National Bank corner. The boxes are red with green tops, and the mail slit is in the end. The letters will be picked up daily and -read to Santa Claus each afternoon on the Santa Claus Radio Program over KXAR, whjch is being sponsored by the Retail Merchants. The radio program will not be conducted Thursday afternoon, December 11, because Santa Claus will be here in person and will ride through the business district on a special float, and he and his helpers will have candy and gum for the little folks. The children are urged to mail their letters to Santa in. these boxes and listen for them to be read on the 4:30 radio program and hear what Santa has to say about the things they want. Santa talks to us each day from the North Pole over special short-wave radio through station KXAR.

Reuther, today charted a fighting program to keep the labor organization an active factor in America's industrial life. Reuther, in a speech accepting the post as successor to the late Philip Murray, said he would strive for the biggest possible gains for workers already organized, and campaign vigorously to organize workers who are now non-union. Election of the dynamic, 45-year old .Reuther, head of t,he big CIO auto workers union, came late yesterday as a climax to the CIO's annual convention. Witnesses Say Mobsters Rule New York Docks NEW YORK, MV-State Crime Commission witnesses say shipping firms must submit to mob rule, theft and padded payrolls to avoid labor strife on New York's vast waterfront. The dock probe hearings, which went through a second session yesterday, arc aimed at exposing rackets which have taken an estimated ano million dollar annual bite out of the 7 billion dollar year ly New York shipping business. Thomas Mahcr, a 40-year veteran on the waterfront, testified how his omploycrs-the Grace Line—listed a phantom employe whose wag es went to an ex-convict. Mahcr saiu Tim O'Mara, a public loader with a police record, collected more than $2. r ),000 in wages over a seven-year period for a non-existent employe known as "Edward Joseph Ross."

By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK Ml — The last time I saw my goddaughter Nina, aged five, her parents had concluded after much discussion that they finally would make the GREAT SACRIFICE and get her a kitten.

But at the conclusion ot th, meeting we were determined to havo n kitten under Nina's Christ mas tree by Dec. 25. The rest of the story I got bj hearsay.
