But as the leader among the democratic peoples of the world it has an inescapable duty. In this critical time it must stand firm for the ideal pf human freedom. [World co-operation toward a permanent peace can be achieved only by nations that meet on an equal footing. A strong and well- prepared America can command the respect and attention its views deserve. A weak America can only hope—and beg. Your Armed Forces-Army, Navy and Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard-are your country's guarantee of co-operation for peace. Their manpower must be of the best— alert, efficient, well trained. Their equipment must be kept at the peak of scientific advancement. Above all, they need the wholehearted support of every loyal American. On Armistice Day, 1947, it is fitting that we remember the sacrifices made by our young manhood in World War I. At the same time we should realize that the weakening of our, Armed Forces after that struggle led inevitably to still greater sacrifices in World War II. On this day of memory let us resolve that the same tragic mistake shall not be repeated, DAY K£SOLV£ THAT AMERICA SHALL STAY •-*• ST/fOAfG SPACE FOR THIS MESSAGE OF GREAT PUBLIC IMPORTANCE IS CONTRIBUTED BYs Rephan's Hitt's Shoe Store Brookwood Grocery Lehman Auto & Home Supply Hope Auto Co.

The entire balance of the property, comprising 755 acres and 60 buildings large and small, would be handled by the private corporation on a self-liquidating plan to cover the $162,500 remainder o£ the debt by sale or rental of the properties for industrial site purposes. Turkey Army to Hold Maneuvers Istanbul, Nov. 12—(/P)—-President Ismit Inonu, Premier Hasan Saka and other governmental leaders were expected today to leave for Thrace to witness the first extensive filed maneuvers undertaken by the Turkish army since before the war. Naval maneuvers are being held simultaneously in Black Sea. Attack Victim Dies of Injuries Texarkana, TEXAS, Nov. 12 —(UP)— A two - gun Texas ranger was assisting Texarkana police today in their investigation of the hammer murder of Meek Wellborn, prominent Texarkana lumberman and former Arkansas State policed i e d late yesterday -os'cope of about three and a halt simultaneous investigations. The State, a grand jury and the City's Department of Investigation are _ using fine-tooth combs. The Wei- I buted to the fare Department is co-operating under a new head, which is worth at least half of an investigation. These inquiries stem from a series of disclosures by the New York World-Telegram, which were kissed off by critics, including one ex-reporter who has set himself up a radio program as an indui- it mentor of the daily papers. Maybe it is worth mentioning, in a by-the-way, that the original disclosures could not have been made without the complete freedom of the press with which authoritarians would chisel away if they could. The disclosures, that brought a new welfare commissioner and a series ol probes, consisted of a spo radic series of stories about specific incidents which fell into two classifications. One was instances in which the taxpayers money was 'aeing wasted on unworthy, unneedy chiselers, and wasted on needy families which were being cared for with sensational extravagance. The other group showed the almost complete control exercised over re het' by active members of a Communist-dominated union. In Norwalk, Conn., this fall, 50 enrolled Socialists and 1,000 enrolled Democrats and Republicans chose a Socialist as mayor. They had several reasons, but a ma man. Wellborn from injuries received during an attack by a masked man at a tourist cabin Sunday. Colorful Ranger Chief T. M.

Gonzaullus figured in the invest- igatiqn of the five murders attri- 'Phantom killer" in 945. Gonzaullus earned his nick- ame during the famous riots of ie Mexia, Tex., oilboom. In that era he was known as a deadly with a pistol in either hand, nd fast on the draw. According to Mrs. Grace Evans f Hope, Ark., who was with Well- orn during the tourist court at- ack, a Negro \yith a white hood ver his head climbed in the win- ow and demanded money from >Vellborn. She says that when Wellborn reused he was severely beaten with hammer. Police found footprints utside the window and a bloody andprint on a nearby fence. They av they believe the Negro scaled he fence and lost himself in the djoining Negro district. .jnr one was a relief scandal. SchcoJ •*i;'c-achers were striking for a living wage which the city couldn't afford, because of waste. Part of thai was was in relief, Norwalk, and particularly its So cialists, did not want any needy family to suffer for lack of assist ancc. But it did not want impor tant services to suffer while the relief rolls were padded with per sons perfectly able to look aftei themselves; while some got more help than others under identical circumstances. • t Mew York and Norwalk are dis covering something that other cit , ies might well consider.

Soldier Trieste, Nov. 12 — (UP) —U. _ Army headquarters demanded to day that Yugoslav troops release an American soldier they seizec yesterday while he was fishing near Goriia. The soldier was T-4 Duel Farrell 21, of Starkville. Miss., member o a headquarters company in Tri cste. It was not clear whether th Yugoslav seized him in Italy o: whether Farrell accidentally stepped into Yugoslav territory. He and T-Sgt. Joseph Philape of Dubois, Pa., both of the headquarters company both of the second battalion of the 351st infantry regiment went fishing yesterday along the Pacco river, in the Rupa area, southeast of Goriia. They separated, one fishing up the stream and the other down. The Pacco river runs beside the main Goriia-Trieste highway, just inside Italy. Philape saw a band of Yugoslavs with Farrell at 3 p.m. inside Yugoslavia, but he did not see hig capture. U. S. Army headquarters in Trieste filed a protest demanding Farrell's return through Lieut. Gen. Terence S. Airey. commander of the American-British administered part of the free state. The protest will be transmitted through diplomatic channels to Belgrade. It (was the first seizure of an American by Yugoslav soldiers since the middle of September when a lieutenant and two enlisted men were forcd across the border at gunpoint and held a week. They were returned unharmed but two soldiers seized before that were half-starved when the Yugoslavs finally let them out of prison. Rep. Marion T. Bennett (R. 'Mo.) charged in Washington ,on Oggober. 28 that there, had 'been 63 cases of Yugoslav armed aggression in which American troops were killed or injured since June, 1945. U. S. Army sources said there had indeed been 63 cases of armed aggression, but most of them were not as serious as Bennett apparently had supposed and that in most cases the aggressors were Yugoslav civilians — not soldiers.

Washington, NovA Ig —<*)^Oui' right repeal of the wage hour la* was advo'onted today, by Tyre Taylor, general counsel otthe Southern States Industrial Council. Taylor said the 40 - hour week which is standard in the law "is the very opposite of the ! all - out emphasis on production which the _, times so urgently demand." % He estimated that substitution of a 45 - hour week in U> S. industry would yield enough man hours to build 2,045,000 more homes or 20,000.000 automobiles a year.

The correspondent, J. R. Pech- eral, asserted that his sources regarded the story — which appeared in the evening L'lntransi- ?eant — as "something practically certain. Their attitude, Pechcral said, contrasted sharply with "the skepticism of scientific circles in Great Britain" with which, he declared, the military sources were obliged to associate themselves publicly. L'Aurore, a pro-De Gaualle organ, published articles last July insisting that Russia had the atomic bomb. Pecheral located the Siberian factory city of "Atomgrad", mentioned in L'Intra,nsigeant's story yesterday, as being at Oukhta in Arctic Siberia, where he said 200 German scientists were at work in "powerful'' laboratories. He said this information had seen established by investigations undertaken in Germany to determine the destination of German scientists departing for Russia. ! Pecheral said information collected in Germany showed that the Atomgrad factories were employing uranium ore mined in Czechoslovakia and Saxony. He identified the sapreme director and "ruling master" at Atom- grad as Maj. Gen. Volkov. Pecheral reported that another center of research in unconventional armaments was operating in the Caucasus, where he asserted the Russians were investigating the possible military uses of cosmic rays which could "relegate the atom bomb to the rank of outmoded projectiles." The correspondent said that still a third center, which he did not locate, was doing work on radio- gress at Hope City Hall with Cecil Shuff ield of Nashville in charge of discussions. About 30 county drivers are attending. Yesterday the group heard a discussion by Milton Mosier of Arkansas State Police who outlined the law. governing traffic regulations in regard to stopping buses on the highways. The biggest trouble, he told the group, is that motorists don't realize that when'a school bus stops on the highway all vehicles, following or meeting the bus, must come to a stop until passengers are discharged and the bus is again in motion. Few observe this law which is strictly enforced in Arkansas, he said.

To the young couple, however, the bulging pair were obviously great lovers starcrossed by hopeless destiny. They had been drawn over the school is a garden club and all the children are members. They hold office and participate in the monthly programs. A cerebral palsied child (who cannot talk) is treasurer of the group. When a name, flower, and color for the "Hub was sought, this child's sug- _estion was accepted as follows: The name, Sunshine Garden Club; he flower, the sunflower; the colors, red and geld! typifying the adiant and happy surroundings of the School and the opportunities t affords to handicapped children. The appeal and human interest sack of the suggestion made by this cerebral palsied child was so strong, the Society originated the ,dea to use the sunflower as the symbol of a brighter today through education and training for all such physically handicapped children.

It was the first full length opera I had ever attended. So I made an effort to forget the inanities of the Verdi plot. I overlooked the absurd physical mismatching of the stage lovers and the fact that they sang in Italian. Instead I concentrated on the color of the scene and the music that poured out of their throats in silver torrents. • Well, you know, gradually it began to work. There was something in the way those voices bounced notes off the gallery rafters that caught hold and began to have a meaning. Yes, even for a musical tin ear like mine. I began to feel the lure of opera, which hithrto I had always looked turned unhappily away. But those early enough to get he tickets had passports into another world. They felt lucky to be able to buy standing room at the opening of the Metropolitan Opera. They waited patiently as the fashionable ladies in mink and ermine rustled conspicuously to their seats. Then the great golden curtain lifted on the world they had come to see. It was a land of lost delight to most Americans the world of opera. It was the strange and tuneful land of Puccini, Verdi, Rossini, Offenbach, and the mighty melodies of a man named Wagner.
