The Conservatives claim — and probably, rightly — that the elections are a rebuke to the Socialist regime's management of affairs. The government was not only unable to aveit the fierce economic crisis which grips the country, but tn two years of office hasn't been able to check it. Things, have gone from bad to worse until Britain is threatened With one of the greatest disasters of her long history. Moreover — and this is important psychologically — tlic people are under wartime regirheritalion, and the austerity of living conditions is so great "that .there is even shortage of such necessities as food, clothing and fuel Mind you, the British have amply demonstrated that they can stand any amount of austerity necessary, but the signs are they are wondering whether they are being handed a. rough deal. There is, I believe,, another significant element' in the elections. They arc held by informed'observ- ers to be a warning that there is ho place in England for the communism which is gripping so many continental countries, including Churchill issued a statement declaring that from now on the government "will govern without the moral support and against the will of the people." However that may be, the Socialists decline to consider any such move. And why should they, when they have a big majority in the House of Commons? The Attlee government still has three years to run before a new general election Will be necessary unless a large number of his own followers should desert and vote against him with the Conservatives—which is most unlikely —or unless the prime minister for some unforeseen reason should decide to call for a iiew election. Certainly the indications are that the present regime will carry, on as usual, barring some unexpected development. France, just across the n rom the cliffs of Dover.

The government, however, demonstrated its intention of hewing closely.to the line by beating down last night in the House of Commons a month-old measure authorizing i Labor ministry to channel unemployed persons into under many of the 394 Labor members abstaining. The measure requires all unemployed men between 18 and 50 Snd all unemployed women from 20 to 40 to register with state labor exchanges. Employers may hire help only through the agencies.

On that basis, the company could have sold each of its products at retail for almost 12 per cent less than it does.

The Prater Manhattan has broken every sales record in the long history of the automobile industry. Never before has any big, luxurious fine car sold in such volume in less than seven months from the date it was first announced! It has had a truly phenomenal public acceptance—more than 25,000 buyers in less than seven months! Henry J. Kaiser and Joseph W. Frazer put the seal of their approval on this new product of Willow Run, last March. They knew they had put into it supreme beauty and luxurious appointments, smooth power and maximum performance, unusual safety features and long- lasting dependability—plus the balance and poise that would make it the easiest riding car in the world. They knew they had spared no expense—in engineering, in materials, in precision manufacturing methods. They knew, in short, that this car had what America wanted! Then they priced it "right"—hundreds of dollars below what would have been justified by such superlative quality. To everything else they added value! For they wanted to make and sell tlu's great car in volume. They were right in their planning. For while Frazer Manhattan production has been increased five-fold since last April, public demand has never yet been filled! Come and see—and drive—this big, handsome, roomy, ultra-modern motor car.

Washburn Scrap Paper Harris' Report on Europe Nekt Sunday, November 9, the local post of Veterans of Foreign Wars will make the first of a series of semi-monthly scrap paper ^.collections. * There has been trouble in the past in maintaining a regular schedule of collections. Post Commander SyVelle Burke tells me this isn't going to occur under the VKW management. Householders are asked to have scrap paper bundled up at the curb in time for the collection trucks, which will make their rounds between 2 and 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon. The collection will be made the ^•second and fourth Sunday of every month—so the collection following this one will be November 23. The VFW has tackled a tough but valuable job in scrap-'paper collecting. Paper comes from wood pulp. It continues to be a scarce and high-priced item. Scrap papei goes into the manufacture ot con ; tainers and paper board products, essential items in food and othei packaging lines. New paper is usec by newspapers and magazines — but you do your country and your •j|seli: a great service when yoi save old papers and magazines so that the paper board industry can continue to function for all the packaged goods that you buy every day in the year. .

Last night's audience gave close attention to every word of Congressman Oren Harris' hour-long report on Europe as he saw it during a six-weeks, 20,000-mile, air tour this Autumn. It was a grim and meaningful .tstory—inviting Americans to look 'over the edge of the abyss and see another world war hatch out before we decide to do anything to stop it. Mr. Harris said he thought it was obvious we ought to put the Marshall plan, in effect at once, giving individual Europeans some means of rebuilding their countries —thereby blocking Russia's plan to continue chaos in Western Europe until people lose all hope and turn to communistic doctrine. The congressman was not merely 'ollowing Democratic party line. e gave the iacts for his conclusions. And the most encouraging note on the entire American scene is that Republican as well as Democratic congressmen and senators are coming back from European tours with pretty much the same verdict. It looks like America will take some kind of united action - when congress meets in special, session •6 BY JAMECi THRASHER ;;Reds In Filmland—II The menace of communism in the United States is serious enough that we cannot afford to combat it by unintelligent methods. Yet there is certainly questionable intelligence in the procedure of the House Un-American Activities Committee in its investigation of the comrades in the movie industry. The committee has introduced no films whose plots or dialog advocate an overthrow of this govern- f ment. It has produced no pictorial evidence that screen writers, directors, actors or producers are presenting this government as warmongering and imperialistic, or are suggesting that American cap- t 'italism is evil, decadent and doom* -^d to early destruction. ..4" Instead, the committee seems in- 9 • tent chiefly on collecting names of Communists or suspected Communists, although the FBI probably could have given them all the names they needed without the ex- jtpensc of hauling several million dollars' worth of movie big-shots to Washington. Film writers, directors or actors are not the final judges of what the public sees. If a writer tried to inject moscow-inspired sentiments very olten, he would likely find himself out of a job. And Hollywood pays its belter writers the kind of eating money that would make the most dedicated comrade think twice before killing the source of the 18-karal eggs. sf Perhaps the Thomas Committee is only concerned with bringing Hollywood's Communists and crypto-Communists into the open, with maybe the hope that their employers would fire them. It would seem, from the evidence at hand, that the men who actually run the West Coast studios are doing an excellent job of keeping the Communists in line. They cannot prevent their employes from joining the party or from shedding a tear for the proletariat while they atpaddlc their feet in their privals swimming pools. They cannot prevent them irom being hypocritical bores and nauseating nuisances. But they can prevent them from preaching communism on the sound tracks, and from undermining the democratic faith of millions of movie-goers every week. And they- have done so. Inasmuch as some members of the Thomas Committee have been among the loudest how- U.S. Must Help Europe, Says Harris Congressman Oren Harris, back from a six-weeks overseas flying trip that covered 20,000 miles, told his old home county here last night that a handful of Americans over in Europe are holding a line against communism that extends all the way from Sweden south to Turkey. Congress has been -:ail2d into special session November 17, and in his Kiwanis club banquet speech at Hope High School last night the Seventh District congressman said America has a choice of three courses: "We can, (1) Pull out of Europe altogether," he said, "or (2) Simply mark time while waiting for another war, or (3) Give immediate help to free European 'governments -along the lines proposed by State Secretary Marshall." Congressman warns observed that different men survey the same scene and come back with different conclusions, and he added that the purpose of last night's report on his European trip was merely to give the facts and his own personal opinion on what American ought to do. His conclusion was: "Implementing the Marshall plan will cost money. Marshall proposes to stabilize the currency and economy of those countries that are willing to help themselves. It will cost America some money— but it seems to me it is better to extend this help to Europe now, even though it costs us, than to allow ourselves to be pushed into a position where mere cost wouldn't matter alongside the prospect of: another war, and our destruction." Mr. Harris, a member of the Farm Buys 1927 Model T for $995 Cash Houston, Tex., Nov. 4 — (UP) —The used car m-u-ket in Hoston rode along in high gear today when a 62-year-old farmer counted out $995 cash for a 1927 Model T. R .L. Thacker of San Augustine first noticed the car in a classified advertisement in a Houston newspaper. He said he had been lookng for a Model T for three years "ever since my last one wore out." And his last one was a 1920 job. "Sure it was pretty high," Thacker said, "but I wanted a Model T and I had the money. That's all there was to it." . He explaied he never drove anything but a Model T in His life. "I don't go for all these wheel shifts and things like that, and . I don't guess I'd know how to drive anything else if I wanted to," the well- to do farmer added. Thacker said he once drove his 1910 model in low gear for 160 miles, "not knowing about high gear." He said it didn't burn out "and I've been a Model T man ever since." Stennis Apparent Winner in Mississippi Senate Race; Kentucky Goes Democratic By The Associated Press A series of party turnovers in mayoralty contests and'Kentucky s return to a Democratic administration stood out today from Tuesday's off year elections. In Mississippi, where the electibn of a successor to the late Senator Theodore G. Bilbo drew national attention, the apparent winner as counting went on today was Judge John C. Stennis. .„• .;' Stennis, 46, who didn't stress the race issue on which Bilbo alwsyt race issue on which Bilbo always campaigned, opened a lead of 4,000. votes over the next man in a field of five Democrats.

Democrats retained control of Cleveland and Republicans of Philadelphia. Thus there was ammunition for partisan claims from each major party, but puzzling inconsistencies for anyone trying to discover any trend. At the White House, Presidential Press Secretary Charles G. Ross first declined comment on the election results, but gave an emphatic "no" when asked if the White House was "unhappy" about them. The Mississippi Senate race shared interest in yesterday's off- year state and municipal elections with a return of the Kentucky governorship to the democratic lold after four years of Republican rule at Frankfort. Democrats swept back into control in this "border" state by eas ily electing U. S. Rep. Earle C. Clements as chief executive over Republican State Attorney General Eldon S. Dummit and taking over control of Lo'uisyiUe'svfbbalrd of aldermen. Incumbent Govi Simeon S. Willis was not eligible to succeed himself. Democrats will claim this a major upset, although Republicans, who have had only five governors in the state's history, have never elected two in a row Otherwise, there was little in the cross country returns to show any that "outside pressure" was exert ed against the War Production Board in 1943 to prevent cancellation of Howard Hughes' contract to build the world's largest llying boat. i Questioned by Chairman Ferguson; (R-Mich) of a Senate War In- vebtigating subcommittee, Wilson said that Henry J. Kaiser was one of'those who brought such "pres sure." Wilson, who headed the Wartime Aircraft Production Board, was the first witness as the committee resumed hearings, interrupted last August, into Hughes' $40,000,000 worth of contracts to build the flying ^boat and photo reconnaissance planes. Wilson, who is president of the General Electric Company, testified he ordered Hughes' contract for the 200-ton flying boat cancelled in 1943 because "in my best judgment it could not be completed in time to serve the war effort." The former War Production Board vice-chairman told the committee another factor in his decision to cancel an $18,000,000 con tract for the plane was an acute shortage of manpower on the west coast where the ship was being built by Hughes. Subsequently, Wilson's cancella tio'ii order was reversed by the late President Roosevelt, who directed that the project go ahead. The big plane has been under construction since and took to the air for the first time last Sunday during a trial taxi run. Before Wilson took the witness stand, Ferguson said the committee is seeking to determine any Marshall's plan for Korean independence. Despite the announced boycott, the 57-nation political committee of the United Nations asembly voted 46 to 0, with four abstentions in favor of the U.S. plan.The Soviet bloc refused to take part in the vote even to the extent of record- ine an abstention. The Soviet boycott declaration was made by Admiral Z. Manuil- sky, foreign minister of the Ukraine, after U. S. Delegate John Foster .Dulles nominated that Soviet republic as a member of the projected 9 nation election commission for Korea. The name of the Ukraine was in eluded, however, in the member ship of the commission along with Australia, Canada, China, El Sal vador, France, India, the Philli pines and Syria. Both the Unitec States and Russia were omittet from membership. The refusal of the Ukraine to serve on the .

Corn Demonstration at SKover Springs 1 p. m. Thursday The harvest results of the 61- variety corn demonstration at the Otis Fuller farm just South of Sho- vcr Springs store will be exhibited and explained Thursday afternoon at 1 o'clock, announces Oliver L.

The quality of each lot will be stressed. Mr. R. S. Ayres of Little Rock, state representative of the Peppard Seed Company, will be in charge of tbs meeting Thursday. up their own local currencies. Officials most familiar with the idea contend that once Europe actually is on the way to recovery, local currencies will begin to regain their real value but that this may not be apparent to the people. Hence great advantage could be derived, the officials say, from making available certain amounts of gold as currency reserves to replace those that have been drained off both by the war and by postwar imports of such essentials as food and fuel. The whole idea would be to provide more or less visible evidence of the strength of local currencies. Neither the gold nor the dollars furnished under the. stabilization program would be available for increasing the amount of goods the receiving, countries could bay under the Marshall plan itself. However, the authorities who speak in favor of the gold proposal sav it would contribute greatly to the internal fiscal stability of the cooperating European governments and that eventually those countries presumably would be able to return the stabilization funds to the American treasury. Meanwhile, with time running short for the final stages of Marshall program planning, Secretary of Commerce Harriman, Undersecretary of State Lovett and other American officials, met yesterday with Sir Oliver Franks and members of a European committee to review "American thinking" on the recovery problem. The Europeans are understood to have been urged to get the 16 nations they represent to take prompt and vigorous steps to carry out Iheir own recovery projects as rapidly as possible. These include poosting their production, increasing their exports and taking any measures they can to attain maximum fiscal stability. C. F. Jones, 53, Ex-Resident Dies in Texas C. G.

He tumbled down the last few stairs and lay, stretched silent and neager on the narrow platform of he Wall Street subway station. It was the noon hour, and people are in a hurry then along the street where the world buys and sells. Some men stepped over the small sprawled figure and others walked o the other side of the stairway, pausing only for a quick glance. A subway track walker and a young well-dressed man who .ooked like a broker saw the old man. The subway worker bent and lifted the old man to a sitting posture. The well-dressed young man, icedless of a pool of spreading blood, knelt to feel the feeble pulse. "I can hardly feel it." Someone ran upstairs to the change booth to summon help. The other two men gently laid the old man back down and put a newspaper under his head. The color drained out of his wrinkled (*_ can do is pray." So there on the station platform with cars coming and going, carry ing heedless hundreds on the er rands of life, the young man knelt by the side of death and lifted up his voice: "Our Father, who art in Heav en . . ." The grimy subway worker knelt, too. and joined him: 'Hallowed be thy name . • •" Frightened women moved away from the scene, but half a dozen men halted.
