Members Is Justified The confidence shown at last night's chamber of commerce banquet was in marked contrast to the doubt and fear that began to grip Hope with the dissolution of tne Southwestern Proving Ground as a lederal operation. .And the optimism of last night was justified by the facts as our community knows them. We had a long way to go to bounce that high, for the proving ground condemnation proceedings took out of production 00,000 acres of land, half ot it prime ; farm property, farming being tne mainstay 01 this community, and much of that land being either ruined or so badly damaged it will tame years to make it safe lor agriculture, we had plenty ot reason to be pessimistic. But tue community has pressed steadily for federal action to turn the industrial area loose for factory sites, and that is now on the verge .of accomplishment. One major new industry has been announced by local and regional people, (Jobbwood. Inc.. And some farm land has been reclaimed irom the vast icaerai domain.

Tom Scott disclosed last night that Joyce, 24 hours after ler arrest, had admitted to investigators that she attempted to abuse he younger child.

Luckman minks he can see all tne way to ms goal, and that by year-end we shall nave saved the 1UU million bushels oi wheat. Time alone can tell whether he is over-optimistic. The layman, who knows only what he sees going on around him, imds it hard to accept that optimism at lace value. Most wheat has to be saved in the home. J^very pound 01 butter we cat costs more than 13 pounds of wheat; every pound of beef another 13 pouncis. It takes a whole UU-pound Dusnei, to raise a d'/i- pound fowl. We feel righteous, when we pass up. a ,0-pounu pork roast on !iue,s.<.. • aay, ^SUVing aoout .40 '"pb'undsi- oi wneat, but we substitute a 4- pound chicken representing about bB pounds of wheat. We string along with Luckrnan, and pass up lour eggs for Thursday breaiv- fast, saving three pounds of wheat. iJut we sloice up on beef stew, in which our share of the meat represents 3% pounds of wheat. Looking backward, it seems as though we did it more effectively in luitf when Herbert Hoover faced a similar food conservation problem. We gave him the Lever Act as a weapon; but with it he utilized a degree of public co-operation much more effective than is apparent now. Mills were required to take more flour out of each bushel of wheat. Bakers had to pad wheat flour with substitutes in their bread. Individuals had to take corn meal or rice or grits whenever they bought white flour. Hotels could not serve more than two ounces of Victory bread to person for each meal. But Hoover went beyond these compulsory steps. He waged a the as reported ,-lefinite accomplishments in 1947 and certain expansion of industrial plants and civic improvements in 1948. 1947 Report George W. Peck, re-elected pres- dent for the new year, reported that in 1947 the chamber had: 1. Negotiated successfully for the purchase of the industrial area of the . Southwestern Proving Ground to be used as factory sites. 2. Helped promote a pasture campaign in Hempstead county, which will be continued through 1948. Z.

This last important saving was measured by garbage collections, which went down 10 per cent, and by the recovery of grease from garbage, which was reduced 30 per cent. Even if Luckman does save 100 milion bushels of wheat this year, we are going to be embarrassed by the hunger of the Old World for somp time to come. We are embarrassed by the high cost of food, too. It might be worth while to consider a 1947-48 campaign against waste. Herbert Hoover proved it could bo done. Are we any less imaginative ond resourceful now'.' Manager Is Club Speaker Hope's new radio station, KXAR, is approaching its formal opening day early next month, and is a member of Mutual network and the Associated Press, it was announced today at the Rotary club luncheon on a program featured by an address by R. L. (Bob) Mitchell, station manager. Attending the luncheon with Mr. Mitchell were L. B. Tooley, chief engineer, a member of the local club; and Marshall Hendrix, chief announcer and program and news director. Mr. Mitchell was introduced by A. H. Washburn for Hope Broadcasting company. "A radio station is a public service institution," said Mr. Mitchell, "supported by commercial announcements developed for this new medium rather than competing with, or replacing, existing forms of advertising." He said that while critics sometimes complain of "commercials" in radio the actual percentage of "sold time" is less than, the advertising percentage in other media. He pointed out that magazines frequently run 75 per cent advertising on total contents, that large newspapers approximate that figure but local radio stations hold to a rule of 60 per cent commercial, with the actual running time of advertising text far less than that. The local station, he said, will dominate four countries in Southwest Arkansas, with 250 watts State Resumes Case Against Mclaughlin By JIM THOMMASSON Mt. Ida, Nov. 21—(/P)—The state rested today in its trialof former Mayor Leo P. McLaughlin, Hot Springs, on a ;charge that he accepted poll tax purchase authorization lists in return for "protection" to gamblers. The defense began presentation of its case after being overruled on a motion to have stricken the testimony of three Hot • '"Springs firemen that'McLaughlin Hold them "if you boys don't want to get up these poll tax lists, turn you name we'll get into Miss Marsh and someone that will." The trio also testified they had obtained blank authorization lists Erom Miss Hazel Marsh, McLaughlin's secretary, and turned the lists of signatures over to her. The prosecution neared the end of its witness list today. The jury was sent out of the courtroom while counsel argued' a defense objection to the type of testimony being offered. Prosecutor Sid McMath told the court he intended to show McLaughlin required the firemen to get poll tax lists to keep their jobs. "This was a bribe under the statute, the same as if they'd been required to give him money to keep their jobs." McMath charged. The court overruled the defense Continued on Page Two : o Search Starts for Plane With 11 Aboard San Diego, Calif., Nov. 21—(/P)— A Navy Lockheed Neptune patrol bomber with 11 men aboard crashed at sea 102 miles off San Diego early today, and llth Naval District headquarlws reported that two survivors had been picked up.

Bobcats Meet Arkadelphia Here Tonight at 8 o'Clock in Final Home Game The Hope Bobcats play their inal home game of the season here tonight at the High School stadium % at 8 o'clock when they neet Arkadelphia. From all indi- cats the field will be wet and possibly sloppy in spots. Playing their final home game of the season will : be such stalwarts as Jack Ray, Denny Smith, Robert McCullough, Wilson. Garrett, Charles Crawford, Joe Rooker, Billy Ray Williams and Beverly Osborne. These boys end their high school football careers against Pine Bluff Thanksgiving Day. The Bobcat lineup has undergone a couple of important changes. Wilton Garrett who has been running at fullback will start in the line at guard tonight, replacing the injured S. A. Westbrook. Tho line is not unfamiliar to the husky Garett who played three seasons at tackle before being converted to the backfleld. Starting at the fullback spot Will be Roger Neal who has played some^ good ball wtlh the second string all year. Wesley Huddleston who has been starting at fullback will be used as a utility back in the place of Mitchell LaGrone who is nursing a hip injury. Actually there is not much at stake tonight outside of another win or lose. Both teams have been elimnated from playoff brackets. Past performance against tougher opposition places Hope as the favorite but it must be pointed out that DeQueen who decisively trounced Hope last Friday beat the visitors by a single extra point. On a wet field anything can happen and fans may see a much better game than expected. Mr. Truman said he is appoint- in? Gen. C. V. Gates as commandant of the Marine Corps succeeding Gen. A. A. Vandegrift. 'At the same news conference, the president disclosed that Maj. Gen. Robert M.Littlejohn is resigning as War Assets Administrator November 28. : Bradley's choice for the top army spot has been regarded as virtually a foregone conclusion ever since Eisenhower announced »his plans to retire next year and become president -of Columbia Univcsity in ew York.

Princess Alexanda was once the pride and joy of Mrs. L. H. Bradley of Clarksville, Arkansas, who came by her in an unusual manner. When Mrs. Bradley, a tiny miss of four years, visited her aunt who lived in Marlin, Texas she was given some tickets received NOT ALL ALIKE Thermos bottles are not all packed in the same way, and milk with purchases in AJexanda & Epstein's store there. The tickets made wonderful train tickets for the little miss and her brother for many months after they returned to Arkansas. They spent much time playing train. When the aunt realized the drawing was near she wrote the little girl to send her the tickets for the drawing. This ticket having survived the tram play won the poll, who was named Princess Alexanda Epstein. • Princes Alexanda has spent most of her 20 years as a store model during holiday seasons and but The incipient Red revolutions against the governments of France and Italy provide prime object lessons of Communism's methods for all free people who are smart enough to take a good look. The present situations in these two key states of Western Europe are neither haohazard affairs, nor have they devleoped overnight. They are typical in their growth. They are the result of long and careful maneuvering from small and ostensibly peaceful beginnings. In both countries the Bolshevists started to bore in soon after the Russian revolution of 1917, a generation ago, and they have continued ever since, although they were driven underground in Italy during Mussolini's rue. There were the agents of the Comintern — the fifth columnists and fellow travelers—the "social and "educational" fronts with innocent sounding names—the pink organizations in schools and urn- veristies, and the "liberal" teachers who secretly were Communists—the unobtrusive entrance into politics—and most important of all, the infiltration into trade unions and the capture of strategic executive positons. All these schemes were pushed vigorously but quietly until today designed solely for manufacturing I will not keep in all bottles the reioneo in many an ^"la?!i ^JL5SS r COnlP " Cd wlthl-ametength of Ume for that rea- J^S'^b^f RoyaTcourC . an allied directive. son. concerns actual military defense. Al east that's the way things stand now. They may expect .to get economic aid from America, .and it will be strange if Russia isn t providing similar- assistance for the rebels. But we may take it foi granted, I believe, that, both Washington and Moscow will proceed with caution, since nobody wants to see another World War develop. The Italian and French governments are marshalling all then strength to meet their life and death crises. Italy, of course, is by far the weaker of the two and theie are no very precise indications of how much military strength she can muster to deal with the Red nenace. Misister of the Interioi Scelba, key man in Premier De Gasperi's denfense and a bitter foe of Communism, says he doesnt expect the leftist violence to cease. He declared in a speech at Naples: "Having failed in the parliamentary plane, which is the normal means of democratic political competition, XXX there remains only revolutionary force". . Meantime in neighboring France President Auriol has been taking drastic measures. He has recalled 140,000 conscripts to the Army to get set for eventualities, and at.the same time has been seeking to reorganize the cabinet on a middle- of-the-road basis politically.
