A defense attorney told the court and jury it was admitted that authorization blanks were" typed by the former mayor's secretary, mimeographed and distributed throughout Hot Springs. He made this statement after the state began testimony apparently designed to prove the same point. At ' one point Judge Cummings ruled in effect the state at the time had not made a case against McLaughlin, commenting it had not proved the defendant knew of the existence of gambling operations while he was in office. .Another ruling was that the state could impeach its own witnesses through grand jury- records. This was made after the defense had comolained. .the state was seeking to discredit r.the testimony of some apparently-reluctant witnesses it had summoned.

FARRINGTON Washington, Nov. 21 — (IP) —The navy today issued orders banning lorever the 40-year-old Annapolis secret society knowri as the "Green Bowl" because of "ruomor and speculation" that its members lad the inside track for promotions and high-ranking jobs. A navy "memorandum, to the press" said there is no evidence that the group had any such influence. But there had. been, it added, an "adverse effect to a limited degree on service morale, because bf the fear of the potentialities of an alleged self-serving secret society." The report said a total of 156 naval and marine officers now on active duty belonged to the Green Bowl in midshipmen days. Armed Forces, 'anunofficial service publication, said recently 18 of a Forc.es, an unofficial service publication, said recetnly 18 of these are admirals. A full-scale investigation of the Green Bowl was ordered after Capt, J. G. Crommolin, Jr., testified before a congressional committee that it was an inno'cently- started organization "grown vi- ciotis with the years."

"Ten months ago," Mr. Fletcher continued, "J. Walter Cobb, Jr., oi! Memphis came to Little Rock and told us at the commission about his process for making wallboard out of waste wood—at a price to compete with plywood.

NEW YORK COTTON New York, Nov. 21 — (/P) —Cotton futures was firm in early dealings today, supported by trade and outside buying. Profit taking and hedging, later pared part of the gains. Strength in other markets, coverng against export cotton sales, and firmness in the nearby December delivery, prior to first notice day next -Monday, were factors continuing to the upturn.

When Committee Counsel William Rogeers took issue .with him on this, Meyers shouted: "I think you .would have signed it, too, Mr. Rogers." Rogers angrily declared there was no call for such a statement. Ferguson commented that there would not be much point to affidavits if they could be explained away as Meyers was trying to. Under a series of questions, Meyers insisted that he had no plans to cash in on government contracts when he set up Aviation Electric—that it was for the LaMarres. done solely LaMarre, who left a $35 a week job to become head of the concern, has testified that Meyers got more than $150,000 in profits from the firm's millipn-dollar-plus aviation subcontracts. Meyers acknowledged that he also signed a second affidavit that "was incorrect" to obtain a District of Columbia license for the same large blue car. The second affidavit also listed the electric company as owner and user of the car at the fashionable apartment here where the general lived at one time during the war. While the Senate hearing progressed, the Meyers case got attention elsewhere. Amvets, organization of veterans, demanded in a statement that the army revoke the Distinguished Service Medal and Legion of Merit awarded to Meyers and re-examine his right to a monthly disability pension of $461. On the house floor, Rep Bennett, alluded to the Meyers hearing and declared: "If the Army does not soon take action to court - martial that scoundrel I shall introduce legislation to require it." Bennett said Meyers draws total of $550 a month "from the American taxpayers," getting other allowances as well as $461 disability pension. ustjce department has an ceive any persuasive evidence that the Green Bowl, or any of its members, discriminated against nonmembers, 9r that the association attempted .in, any way to obtain promotions or preferential duty assignments for any of its members," the navy declared. The full report of the investigation is classified "confidential" by the navy, and officials declined to disclose the names of the 156 Green Bowlers now on actve duty. Admiral Lowry's "findings" on which the . memorandumis based could not be obtained immediately but one high-ranking officer prom- sed it would be made public ater. No evidence has produced, the memorandum said, that any Green Bowler "had bencfitted professionally or financially by his membership in this association." The highest i-anl-ing C- ... Bowler, Admiral DeWitt C. Ramsey, vice chief of naval operations, told a reporter recently he had never discovered how to resign from the.organization since it held no meetings, collected no d;ies, and had no officers or records. He said he personally promoted the investigation and wanted "to lay the ghost forever." The navy memorandum said "the only harm done by the Green Bowls Association has been psychological, the investigators con eluded, because its mere existence no matter how nnocuous sits pur pose, gave rise to rumor and speculation. "While the Investigation ..__ critical of graduate members foi their failure to initiatp action to stop the perpetuaton of this asso elation, and while these members as midshipmen, violated academj regulations in joining a secre society, it was concluded that no alumni members x x x should be penalized at this late date for the youthful indiscretions of their naval academy days." The Green Bowl was organized by midshipmen in 1907, the navy said, and existed until 1944.

It was the women who cheered witn close to tearful appreciation I at the signt of the magnilicient mounted guardsmen, whose sleek horses ana red, white and gold uniforms first broke the monotony of the bleak day, the grey, tired crowds. It was the women who sheered loudest for the wedding guests— Churchill, Eden and Suts—m that order. It was the women whose breaths caught at the sight of three-year- old rtichard, son of the Duke and IJuchcss' ol Gloucester. Dressed in a white bunny coat, the pretty blond boy stood at tne window oi a limousine and solemnly waved and spectators modeled all the styles of the last decade. Dowager Duchesses in old limousines wore ancient jewels and ancient furs. More fashionable wedding guests wore velvet, feathered or flowered hats and mink ai;d fox over dressmaker suits or simple dresses. In the crowd were represented a hundred furs, from sable to cat. Women dressed to keep warm in boots, slacks and heavy scarf, with sometimes a little flag or ,a tiny bunch of violets for dress-up. It was a women's show and the women loved it. Moist-eyed, she appeared to welcome the release afforded by her mall son's slip. She gave him a light nod.

There were divergencies of opinion in the early Christian church, as there have been in the church all through its history. Peter and Paul did not always agree, and so witn the lesson is the story of Peter in John 21, the Master's question to the disciple, saddened by his denial of his 'Lord. "Lovest tnou me?" and Peter's commission to manifest his love by ministering to others. It is significant, and an evidence of the great transforming power of the Gospel, that it is Jonn who is so insistent upon Love as the supreme thing, the very nature of God himselt, and the test of the Christian lite. It was this very John, who had roused the other disciples to indignation through the ambition of himself and his bro.- tner James to have tne foremost places in the kingdom, which at that time they believed Jesus was going to set.'up on earth. It was ne, also, who wanted Jesus to call down fire from heaven, "as did Elijah," and consume some villagers who had treated Him discourteously. And now this man of fire has become a man of gentleness and love, but he knows that to love God means to love one's brother. If there is any of the old fire and intensity in him, it is when he speaks of this love and its demands on men. The man who professes to love God, and hates his neighbor, according to John, is not only a misguided, or weak, person; he is a liar. So, John repeats this demand of love again and again, and the circumstances which DOROTHY DIX A Full and Happy Life DEAR MISS DIX: My wifs and 1 nre about to 'celebrate our Golden Wedding and it has mado us realize anew how very rich we have.been in having such a happy married life and in .the affection of our children. We have had none of the problems with our chhdvei that Paul tells about one occasion when he withstood Peter "to the face" (Galatians 2:11). But far too much has been made of these differences, at least by some, and the one fact that stands out above all else is the unity of the New Testament, and the agreement of all its writers regarding the essential Christian facts— the nature of the Gospel, and the Christian life. A notable, and fundamental, aspect of this unity is in the teaching concerning Love, its source in God, its manifestation in Jesus, and its law and dominant nature of the Christian way of life.

"Those wretched foreign royalty —they're always being potted at by some blighter or other in their own countries and they're scared."

However, not so much as a glance was exchanged between them. ; Outside the vison of virtually all newspaper correspondents invited sat scores of diplomats, prime ministers of the dominions, British Cabinet members and former government leaders such as Winston Churchill. U. S. Ambassador Lewis Douglas was there with his wife who rose from a sick bed to attend, and their daughter, Sharman, a couple of years younger than Princess Elizabeth, with whom she has formed a close attachment.

For example, her husband works near his mother's residence and he goes to her home for lunch, as his own home is on the other side of the town where he lives with her family.

Outside the door through which Ozzie Kremolka finally bowed them on their way with an extra flourish, as if he realized perfectly that this was a special day of days, Cam found it next to impossible to say goodby to Joel even for a few hours. "See you tonight?" It was Joel who asked it, anxiously. Cam's eyes were shining, lifted to his. "Of course." "Do yo'i.1 suppose," he asked with a hint of hesitation, "that Maurine would be willing to go out somewhere with Beefy? I hate to leave the guy at loose ends. After all..' She smiled faintly.

I think it's horrid, nd—" THAT'S A DOWNRIGHT LIE, /IAURINE BLAIR." Cam had not known she was go- ig to speak until the words came elting past her lips with cold corn and precision. She heard Vlaurine's soft gasp of terror. She leard the hasty rattle of the telephone receiver dropped into its :radle. "What were you saying to Joel? What were you trying to trick him nto saying to you? Iknow this was some scheme of yours." Maurine lifted dark, frightened eyes which were wells of misery. 'B-but it's true, Cammie. He—he did admit it." No man could even think such a cheap, contemptible—" "I—I didn't mean you to hear it." Maurine was sobbing now. Not loudly and stormily, as Cam had known her-to sob when she was balked in some one of those endless elaborate little schemes of hers, but with a dreadful low-pitched inevitability. "If I'd known that you were coming—" She hesitated, then, making what was ev idently an uncharacteristic choice of the truth over that which would "But you be easier and more glib. maybe it's better .

There couldn't be two of that name. "It's wrong, Joel, wrong! You shouldn't even ask me to stand by and watch you pretend that you're going te marry Cammie.
