Activities and Methods of Communism, Democracies Are Sharply Defined « Weevils Can Destroy Stored Beans Weevils often destroy dried ^ and peas stored for food or seed* in Hempstead county. To prevent this Home .Demonstration Agent Mary Dixon suggests treating them with carbon disulfide (high-life). Treatment should be made soon after beans or peas are put in storage. For success the beans or peas must be in a gas-light container for treatment. Temperature should be above 70 degrees Fahrenhait and treatment continued for 36 hours. ,,,-f One and a half to 3 ounces will* treat a 50-gallon steel barrel if it is gas-tight. One to 2 teaspoons will treat a 5-gallon lard stand full. Pour the carbon disulfide over the beans or peas and close the cover immediately. Carbon disulfide forms a gas that penetrates into the seed and kills the weevil grubs as well as adult weevils. Carbon disulfide is highly explosive. Do the fumigation away from buildings, she cautions. After treating them, air the seed to remove odors. Do not use an ex-V cessive amount of carbon disulfide. Failure to obey these precautions may taint the flavors of beans and peas for food and injure germination of seed, she advises. . .v By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst As this is written there lie beside me on my desk two piles of current news reports— one batch way of life.

Office Elks / ': Phone Np, GOP Leaders Continued From Page One the world ns seekers for charity at our door " Even before taft, who heads.the Senate Republican policy committee as well as the Senate-House economic committee, tore into the president's program, other GOP leaders voiced their own sharp criticisms. Martin told reporters Mr. Truman was asking for "a more colossal OPA" and added the economic program has little chance for enactment during the special session. House Republican Leader Hal- leek of'Indiana said the president had asked Congress "to grant him dictatorial powers." Even Democratic senators Elmer Thomas of Oklahoma and Byrd of Virginia said the program spells "regimentation." Instead of the president's program, Taft said the way to control the cost of living is to slash government expenses, cut taxes, curtail private credit, control exports and modify the cost of the long-range Marshall Plan for economic recovery of Europe. Democratic leaders said no effort has been made to put the president's suggestions into legislative form, with the exception of .some work that has been done by the agriculture department in making preliminary drafts of measures af- tecling that field. Democratic leader Barkley (Ky) is expected to call his party's policy committee togctherthis week to map a course of action. Congressional chieftains probaby will ask for a conference to discuss the program further with the president before submitting an bills. In any event, there seemed little likelihood that any attempt will be made to wrap up the presidtnt's entire program into a single anti-inflation measure. Senator Fulbringht (D-Ark) told a reporter he hopes separate bills will be offered, 'so that we can vote for those portions of the program we favor and can oppose those that we don't." Fulbright did not define his possible opposition to any of the president's suggestions. Senator Kem (R-Mo) called Mclaughlin Trial Again Delayed By EDNA LE HOWE Mt. Ida, Nov. 18 — (Special) — The Montgomery county petit-jury panel for the September court' term, from which jurors for the poll tax bribery trial of fdrrner Mayor Leo P. McLaughlin werVto have been selected, was disqualified in a surprise move by 'Circuit Judge Maupin Cummings of Fayetteville this morning over objections of Henry Doham 'counsel for McLaughlin. i The court, upon agreement of defense counsel arid Prosecuting Attorney Sidney S. McMath, directed Sheriff William Black, 29-yearrOld ex-GI, to select a special panel of 36 names from a list of 2,432 tax payers in the county in open court, urging that every precaution r be taken in their selection. ': Court was recessed until 11 a. rri. Wednesday. "I want men of high character, above reproach; I want a few women; I want some jurors from the towns in the county and some from the rural sections; I want them riot of one religious faith and not 'involved in politics in this matter."i"The motion for a change of venue from Garland to Montgomery county set up as the principal reason for a change the bitterness and intensive feeling that existed between Judge Clyde Brown and the defendant and as far as I am concerned I want the defendant to of block poll tax payments ob- Italian governments by force and tamed by 'l-ireman Jack" MeJun- intimidation, and the other ecord- km were u dehvered to McLaughlin ling President Truman's message calling on Congress not only to put as a bribe. Circuit Judge Maupin Cummings, presiding over the hearing, transferred here on a change ol venue, overruled a defense demurrer after two hours of argument. The defense contended it was no crime if McJunkin, a former Hot Springs tavern operator, furnished McLaughlin with poll tax lists. Deputy Prosecutor .N a t h a n Schoenfeld argued that "obtaining the list was part of an ingenious scheme by which McLaughlin maintained his political empire and was of enough value that McJunkin paid income, tax of $169,000 on gambling profits." The defense, however, won a request that the state furnish a bill of particulars and a list of state witnesses. The one-time Garland county political leader also was successful in delaying proceedings yesterday until three items miss- our own economic house in order but to provide economic aid for the stricken countries of western Europe. There we have sharply defined the contrast of methods and aims in the conflict between Amrican democracy and Bolshevism. The first is premised on the belief that we should so conduct ourselves— to take a phrase from the president's message— "that men and women of all the world can move ut of the shadows of fear and war outside world, although we like to believe that we should offer our aid in any event. Our politico-economic way of life is heavily interlocked with that of Europe. Moreover, as the president warned, there is an "ominous threat" of inflation in the United States, and at another point he summed ug the position thus: "The future of the free nations of Europe hangs in the balance. The future of our own economy .is in jopardy." Mr. Truman not only asked Congress for limited wage and price controls and rationing authority at home, but called for $597,000,000 emergency winter aid for France, ini^ tHo linhf ,-vf -f™ ^,,~, ,q Italy and Austria. He declared this into the_ light of freedom and, for / ign relief wo u ld be convincing t t 4V , t 0 - 1 ) proof that America is determined tenet mat it to suppO rt the nations of western Europe in efforts to remain free rnm,,ni communism s must be inauguratd by rvolution and a reign of terror so to impress itself upon the populace.

The immediate future would seem to be the most critical period for western Europe;. The French and Italian governments arc fighting for thir very lives against the powerful Communist parties which are trying to wreck them by strong-arm methods. If these tvvo,^ tey nations should succumb to this'»* assault, the rest of the continent probably would fall under Moscow's domination. The question of the moment, therefore, is whether France and Italy can stand up under the present onslaught. The position is especially grave in Italy where the Reds are openly talking revolution while creating widespread disorders. It would be rash to predict that the two -countries would come through without civil strife. How-Li ever, the consensus of observers is' that both can weather the storm, providing they get outside economic help and the rest of western Europe is able to stand firm. Without help, the situation will be grave,- indeed. , Medical Test Proved This Great to Relieve MONTHLY FEMALEPAINS Are you troubled by distress or female functional monthly disturbances?

"The change of venue set out as a reason that Judge Brown had appointed jury commissioners who selected jurors who were biased and prejudiced and many of whom who were related. Judge Brown appointed the commissioners in this county. In all fairness to the defendant the petit jury should be disqualified. If such bitterness existed in Garland county it is conceivable that it carried over into Montgomery county." He said that it was 911 his own motion that he was the panel of 24 jurors ternates. Donham, greatly suprised by the judges action, protested that the defense had not questioned the qualification of the jurors in Montgomery county and had asked for no change in the jurors. "I don't think that unless the defendant requests it, 'that the court has power to disqualify it." "I am disqualifying the jurors anyway." returned Judge Cummings. "It is the only fair thing to do in the matter. "We will need time to confer and ask that you give us 30 minutes." Donham asked the court. "You're doing things so fast we need a little time." Judge Cummings's action in disqualifying the jury panel came after argument over the bill of particulars, requested yesterday by defense counsel and filed by the state as court opened this morning. Attorney Donham objected to one point in the bill which he said did not supply the full information as requested by the defense. He had asked, he said, for the date on which Jaqk McJunkin, former Hot Springs night club operator, is alleged to have given to the former mayor the list of names of 269 persons for whom he had obtained poll taxes. The argument over the bill of particulars this morning involved the question of whether or not a copy of the poll tax list, allegedly compiled by McJunkin, had ever been delivered to the ex-mayor. Donham said that the indictment set forth that the list had been given to McLaughiin, while Schoenfeld told the court that no claim was made that such list had ever been given to .McLaughlin. But that the charge only claimed that McLaughlin received "political influence" as a result of the compilation of the list and that this "political influence" constituted a bribe. He said that the poll tax receipts obtained by McJunkin were delivered to the persons whose names were on the list.

Illinois. 375 La Grange, Illinois Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor ' Alex. H. Washburn America Reverses Historic Trend of Her Tariffs •Washington announced yesterday that effective January 1 the United States will reduce its tariffs on 3,500 items, which, in the words of the Associated Press dispatch on yesterday's front page, is "part of a 23-nation pact affecting half the world's- commerce." Thus, the necessity of world . wide co-operation for economic security and peace is working an historic change in America's domestic policy. Our country's industrial power was built up by a policy of high tariffs —requiring Americans to buy at home at least - those itcrms whctee manufacture tends to strengthen the nation's basic industry both in peace and \var. , . It was never the original intention of the tariff-fixers to cut off foreign trado entirely. There has to be a considerable movement of goods between nations to ac- comodate normal prosperity within individual countries. But the avarice which is inherent in all men eventually thrust the American tariff level so high that two things occurred: U) Foreign nations erected their own tariff walls against our goods, and (2) American expert trade gradually stagnated under an unbearable poli : tical handicap. The last— and highest—tariff bill enacted into law under the administration of Herbert Hoover is credited by economists with being the thunderbolt that struck down paper profits in step toward 1929 and launched the depression ian nation." that ran until 1933. ' High tariffs are justified while a nation is getting itself established. But tariffs levied by a great and rich nation simply to make larger profits lor individuals not only disturb the trade and peace of the world but eventually back-fire on the very firms and individuals they were designed to help. There is no point to giving American aid to Europe now unless we resolve to beat our political sword — the tariff — into a plow• share that will, while earning a / reasonable profit at home, still enable Europe to climb back to economic respectability. light 49TH YEAR: VOL 49 — NO. 32 lt«r •» Me»« CofiielM«t*d HOPE, ARKANSAS, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19,1947 (AP)—M«on« Aiiocfottd Pr«w (NEA)—Meoni N«wspcpor EntffpHMTAm. Group Eliminates Price Control, Rationing Plan Washington, Nov. 19 — (/P) — Chairman Taft (R-Ohio) said today the Senate-House Economic committee will begin hearings Friday on points in President Truman's cost of living program, but proposals for limited rationing and rice control will not be included. Taft told reporters the committee has decided to exclude from its agenda, at least for the present, the rationing and price control points. "I think that if we are going to get anything out of this special session of Congress we will have to leave those points until the regular session," Taft said. , Taft earlier had told a reporter credit and export control are the two recommendations by Mr. Truman most likely to win approval oJ Congress in a program to combal inflation.

One of the remarkable aspects of the Eisenhower-for- .President , movement is the attitude of a number of writers toward the General's continued reticence. They keep asking, with variations, this basic question: "Why doesn't he say no?" [ it must be Obvious, to them why General- Eisenhower does not and 'cannot say yes. As Army Chief of Staff, one'pi. the .two..top -military men entrusted with this'-nation's defense, he is in no position to play politics. But since he can't ^ay yes, is he then .obligated to say no? The Chief of Staff has indicated quite clearly, it seems to us, that he js disposed to consider the talk of his candidacy with favor. Nor does it constitute an endorsement of that unannounced candidacy to inquire, "Why shouldn't, he?" Is it a disgrace to seek the high-, est office that the citizens of the United States can bestow? And* once offered that office, should the other's acceptance be approached through an elaborate Oriental routine .of false modesty and hypocritical negation? Most Americans deplore the horse-swapping and back stage maneuvering that often accompany the choice of a presidential candidate in convention. The term "smoke- filled room" has come to symbolize sach undemocratic practices. The Eisenhower boom—if boom is not too strong a word—at least is something that hasn't been developed and sustained solely by profession- BETWEEN RULES COMMITTEE OKAYS EMERGENCY AID Washington, Nov. 19 — (IP) — The Senate Foreign Relations Committee today approved legislation to provide emergency aid for France, Italy and Austria.

A traditional selling point of the American system of government has been the possibility that any mother's son might grow up to be President. We still think it's a point, and not outdated. ;It doesn't seem unnatural to us that a citizen might view the prospect of the presidential nomination with pride as well as humility. So we can't see why General Eisenhower is being criticized for not taking himself out of the picture simply because he can't say yes to his present job. A straight-forward "Barkis is willin' " would be admirable and perfectly proper at the proper time. Whether a political convention—and, later, the American people—would proceed to choose him is another matter. o '— 20 Years Ago Today By ELTON C. FAY Washington, Nov. 19 — (#")— The air force will begin test drops of the world's heaviest bomb — a 42,- 000-pounder — in about two weeks at Muroc air base in the California desert, it was learned today. Twelve of the huge missiles have been delivered by the army ordnance department for the experiments. The modified B-29 Superfortress Which will carry the record bomb load aloft is at Elgin Field, Fla. Its crew has completed a course of special training. The mammoth bomb will be suspended from n e w 1 y-devised shackles half in and half out of the lengthened bomb bay and will clear the ground by bare inches when- the airplane makes its takeoff run. The bombs dropped at Muroc probably will be "duds," weighted to compensate for the lack of explosive charges. The fact that several are being used suggests that releases will be from varying heights to observe the characteristics of fall and the depths of penetration into the earth. It is assumed that army ordnance experts then will conduct their own tests of the explosive potential, including the detonating of bombs planted at depths corresponding to those attained in the high-altitude drops. From their experiments, the ordnance men -will get their information on earthshock, blast area and zones of damage. Because of the size of the charge, some officers suggested the explo- Tourist-Transport Company of Stockholm, Swedish authorities in Stockholm said. It was chartered to return the Swedish military fliers from Africa. All the fliers were officers of the Swedish Air Force. They had left Sweden Oct. 30. . Carabinieri officials at Salerno said a party had been dispatched to the scene of the crash, believed to be one 3,248-foot Mt. Scala. First reports of the accident said the plane was a U. S. Army transport but Col. John M. Willems, American military attache, said .he had learned "definitely" the craft was not an American craft. Flight operations officers at Ciampino airfield in Rome, where the wrecked plane was due at 4 a. m. GMT today ('11 p. m. EST Wednesday), said the craft was a Bristol and that she carried Swedish military personnel. Five of the injured were reported in serious condition and to be receiving first aid in a rude hut on the mountanside.

The air force said the 42,000 pounds will be the heaviest bomb load ever lifted by a plane. Toward .he end of the war a B-29 was con-. verted to carry two 22,000 pound | Dombs — one under each wing — for use against Japan but it never flew a mission. Airmen assume that the B-29 in the Muroc tests will leap violently when the 21-ton bomb is released. They pointed out when a relatively insignificant 7,000-pound salvo of bombs smaller was drop_ped from wartime B-17s the the airplanes shot sharply upwards. The Muroc experiments are expected to be conducted in secrecy and no technical information will be released on the results obtained. o OHIO'S MILK Ohio's 1,115,000 cows produce 2,572,000,001) quarts of milk a year.

The contract was made by the stock group several weeks ago and at its last session the council, contending the group had no authority to make such a deal, ordered the police department to notify the carnival to move out. Last night's discussion which at times reached a "heated stage" gave the council a view of the stock association's problems. The Stockmen admitted they acted hasty and apparently all the council wanted was to show them who had charge ol the park and to avoid similar incidents in the future. The group voted to raise monthly tontribution to the Library from fiJ5 to §115 matching donations from the county. They also voted to extend a sewer line to the new library location free of charge.

By ROBERT EUNSON Pars, Nov. 19 — (/P) —A spokesman for the Socialist Party announced today that former Premier Leon Blum had agreed to try to form a new government. A rising wave of Communist-led strikes provided the background. The announcement was made by Guy Mollet, secretary general of the Socialist party, at a luncheon of the Anglo-American Correspondents Association; Mollet, considered a member of the left wing of the Socialists, said he believed a new cabinet would be formed within a few days to succeed that of Socialist Premier Paul Ramadier. . > ' Mollet said France had permitted herself to be divided into two groups and that, if civil war should result, it would be "as bad as it was in Spain." Military trucks rushed flour into Paris to assure the French capital of its daily bread.

The convention amended its con stitution to permit the Slate Baj. list Orphanage Board to increas its membership from 12 to 18. A record-breaking budget o $516,600 was proposed for the 1947 48 fiscal year as corn-pared wit the current budget of $408,972, th previous largest. The budget recommendation; presented by Dr. W. O. Vaught Jr., pastor of Little Rock's Immanuel church, allotted $36,000 to Central College which was the sub- iect of the convention's only open controversy in the first day of the convention sessions. The allocation to Central, which is scheduled to reopen at Camp Robinson next fall, was the same as earmarked for Ouachita College, Arkadelphia. The largest single item on the budget proposal was $55,000 for The tale requires a little barkground: An ironbound convention among those born to the purple is that] women of royal birth, if they want to marry a man beneath their rank, must do the asking themselves. This, oi course, is to protect the royal maids from being besieged by empty-pocketed gentry. If no such rale existed, every commoner with a hole in his stocking might go around proposing to princesses — on the odd chance he'd find one willing to share her castle and well-stocked icebox. When Elizabeth decided on Philip, therefore, it was up to her to pop the $64 ciuestion. It is a pretty safe bet, however, that she didn't ask him over to Buckingham palace for a home-cooked meal, and then melt him down to butter with a direct: "Will you, Phil?" In royal circles they are more subtle and work it on a tinker-to- evers-to-chance basis. The regal lady calls in a court intermediary and says, in effect: "That guy really sends me. Go see if he won'i let me buy him a wedding ring." And the twittering intermediary flies back and forth like a passenger pigeon until the deal's sealed. 'A marriage has been ar- for her. . t 4 .. She was sweet sixteen at the time, a true daughter of the strong- willed ruling British tribe, and the man of her choice was the grizzled hero of Khartoum, Lord Kitch- °ner. He was sixty-two years old, but every girl in England adored the stern, tall, arrow-straight military eader. Home from a campaign in Egypt, kitchener was escorting Princess Mary about the grounds of Windsor castle when the infatuated young girl blushingly proposed to ilrn. She said that, although it embarrassed her, she realized royal custom decreed that in such cases the woman must speak first. Soo-o-o-o would he be her husband? Smiling at this unexpected hero worship. Kitchener gently pointed out the difference in their ages. When the little princess eagerly assured him that mado no difference, the hard-pressed warrior suggested diplomatically that perhaps she- had better talk the matter over with her father. King George V. Later Kitchener informed the king of the naive proposal and the monarch roared with laughter. Bat when the kin" told Queen Mary she didn't see anything funny in it, and the little princess got a week's imprisonment in her own room. Readnower, 30, of Dayton, Ohio, told the Senate War. investigating committee the company, which other witnesses have said.Meyers secretly owned paid him $100 monthly while he served in the army. In addition, he said, a $15,000 salary was charged on the books to nim but the money, other than that needed to pay income taxes, went to Meyers. He told the senators that on one occasion he delivered more than $7, 000 cash to Meyers in an envelope, representing the residue of his ostensible 1941 $15,000 salary after payment of taxes. Readnower said that Meyers, retired deputy chief of air forces procurement (purchasing), gave him $1,000. With this $1,000, Readnower said, his acUal 1041 pay from, the company was $2,259.34. Readnower was on the firm's books as vice president and secretary. He is a brother-in-law of I B. H. Lamarre, the. company's president.
