Whatever we have aplenty we offer you with bountiful hands. Whatever is lacking we can do without, compensating for its absence with our own good cheer, generous spirit and gratitude for whatever blessings we do enjoy. As the Pilgrim Fathers found it in their hearts to observe the first Thanksgiving on bleak New England shores v/e who have so much more can certainly say Grace in all sincerity, inspired by the history of our founding fathers' faith. This country is rich in traditions which are so basically sound, they will outline all the changes which may take place in another three centuries of progress and existence. Motor cars may give way to flying vehicles. Our baths may be plastic rather than porcelain; all our foods processed, or fed to us like pills; the tempo of our dance music and of our very lives speeded-upand slowed down in alternating generations. Still the great humane urges to tolerance, personal .freedom and individual security characteristic of those who gave us the tradition of Thanksgiving will never be forsaken.

France Calls Up Troops to Cope With Strikes Paris, Nov. 28 — (/P) —France called an additional 80,001 conscript troops to the colors today to help meet the emergency caused by an epidemic of strikes Which slowly are strangling French economic life. The cabinet's decision, reached in a session of more than four hours, brought to 15 divisions the total of military forces called up within a week to deal with the threat of civil strife arising from Communist-supported strikes involving 2,000,000 men. The decision followed an announcement that 66 police commis- , , . ., r-~ sioners, each of them in charge of duccd sales of $7,000,000.'

Washburn - Arkansas Chosen For Southern , ; Industrial Survey The current bulletin of the Arkansas Resources & Development Commission reports that Arkansas is one of four Southern An states chosen for . a survey of industries by the Committee of the SdUth of the National Planning association. This is a roundup of new industrial installations for the'' South as a whole, and the state commission declares it feels that Arkansas is "complimented by being selected as one of'the four Southern states in which this survey is made.". Nor has the state commission forgotten figures on home business while dealing in sectional matters. The commission has just completed a sales survey of all Arkansas counties, including our own. The report on Hempstead county sales is comparatively disappoint; ing. For the 12 months ending' June 30, 1947, we show retail sales of $7,71)0,000; Clark county produced sales of $7,000,000.' Hot Spring county (Malvern) $6,900,000. But Columbia county (Magnolia) showed sales of $11,200,000; and even Howard county, .with much- smaller Nashville, showed $5,500 - <gl 000. There are certain adjustments • to, be taken into consideration, for the sales figures are taken from the state's official sales tax collection reports, and do not reckon with the leakage that occurs in cities situated, like Hope-, near tax-free territory. But 'even so, this sales report should be a spur to our community to make sure its merchandising effort lives up to> its population figure. •,' 4t * * By JAMES THRASHER Union Help for the Marshall Plan Some of the best brains of America's two biggest labor organizations have not been too busy with domestic problems to give some thought to the situation in Europe. Their thinking seems sound, and the chances of Europe's recovery might well be increased if their A, projects are put into action. w The AFL would like to see labor spokesmen, chosen by labor, in, a number of posts connected with the administration of the Marshall Plan. These would include important diplomatic jobs in key countries, if the AFL had its way, •This request is backed by the soundest logic. Soviet propagandists—to say nothing of Henry A. ; Wallace—are telling the world that ; American foreign policy is being' i,..-,.. haped by Wall Streeters for the 1., benefit of Wall Street. The Mar™ shall Plan is a foundation stone of that policy. Give organized American labor a significant role in administering that plan and Communist propaganda would lose much of its steam. . The AFL is also going to ask the State Department to support, in the United Nations, the union organization's request that the UN Social and Economic Council and the International Labor Office survey thfi,,."slave labor" situation and try to find a means of overcoming it. .The whereabouts of the many thousand military prisoners allegedly transported from the Soviet zone of Germany must be determined at high government levels. Still, the interest of American unions in the fate of these skilled workrs —an interest based on economic as well as humane consideration—seems entirely proper. Meanwhile the CIO is reported ready to spend a million dollars- in Europe next year to improve flap lot ol the members of Europ&g remaining free unions. CIO pla are said to include, among other things, the establishment oi youth centers in various countries. These plans were made before the Communist-inspired riots in France and Italy. But the riots only emphasize the need of rescuing these confused, ill-fed, disillusioned, war-reared kids from Communist agitators. Other CIO projects include the construction ot a clothing factory in Italy, and the setting up of play' grounds and nurseries for the children of mothers who want to work. It is hard to see why the Amer- j ican government should not .welcome these union plans and suggestions and go along with them. High-echelon aid cannot reach down to intimate contact with the rank and file of European workers. A private program of aid, such as the CIO contemplates, should inspire the confidences as well as the gratitude of the workers. Officers (Oi both the AFL and CIO, ' working among these workers but for the American government, should be convincing proof that the United States' intention in Europe is to help, not to exploit. Europeans today are in urgent need of an antidote for the concept of class struggle, which is gaining ground in an atmosphere of growing misery. The spectacle of the CIO and AFL, in spite of some bitter domestic rivalries, cooperating with their government in rebuilding Europe's economy would certainly offer an example which the Communists would be hard put to dismiss.

Pine Bluff—(Special) —Playing on equal terms the first half, Hope's hard charging Bobcats surged back the final periods to all but slaughter the Pine Bluff Zebras on their own field in an annual Turkey Day contest that endeQ the high school grid careers of 8 Bobcats. Hope scored first in the opening period with Sutton reeling off a\ long run to set up the tally^ The shitty Bobcat back then tossed to Britt who went over. Pine Bluff came back to score and kicked the extra point to go ahead 7-6. Just before the half Britt again broKe loose to put Hope in front 12 to 7. The Zebras came back in the third period to score and from ment. There was no official explanation . The Communist newspaper, L'Humanite, called it a purge. Premier Robert Schuman's new cabinet which met under the chairmanship of Socialist President Vincent Auriol , announced the second half of .the 194G class of conscripts was being called into uniform. Half the class of 1947 was 'called up last week. The Ministry of War refused to confirm a report that French troops on duty in occupied Germany were being brought back to Paris to reinforce local forces. Schuman is known to be afraid of letting the Communists gain control of the French police! The police abstained from voting last night when unions of government employes split on a motion to strike call, four supported it. Schuman, armed with a fresh vote of confidence, met with his new cabinet under the chairmanship of President Vincent Auriol to consider means of fulfilling the promise th epremier made to the chamber of deputies early this morning thae "proofs of the government's energy" in combatting the ominous wave of strikes would oe displayed before the day is ended.

Associate Medical Examiner J Harry McCann said the young woman, Frances C. Flint, an honor graduate of Vassar College, apparently was a suicide but that he couldn t be sure until an autopsy was performed. Finding of the body ended a search which began Tuesday when the girl's mother, Mrs. William Hint of Cambridge, widow of a former instructor at fashionable St. Paul's School in Concord, N. H. reported her missing. ' Police Chief Ernest Damon said a .22 calibre Winchester rifle was found about 10 or 15 feet from the body and that the girl's clothing was scattered several feei away. State detectives called into the investigation said they were trying to determine if it would have been possible for the young woman to move after the bullet had entered her head. They also were mystified at'the manner in which her clothing was scattered along the trail — some on the ground and some on the branches of bushes. An automobile, which the girl had been reported driving • earlier in the week, was discovered in a nearoy lane. Damon said that a rifle box and a bill of sale for a rifle from a greater Boston store were found in the car.

He was called back to try for extra point and busted the line as if he played there all the time. Jack Ray was perfect at end before leaving the game with a knee injury in the third period. The lanky Jack took a couple of Button's passes and played a great part of the time in the Zebra backfield. Joe Rooker, also playing his last game, ran and blocked in his usual good form. Robert McCullough, center, was never better, especially downfield tackling and backing up the line. Wilton Ga'rrett, converted fullback to a guard position, a difCi- cult task so late in the season, ca'rried his ,sho(re and Charles Crawford, captain of the team, also stood out on defense. Coming in for their share of honor were Beverly Osborn and Billy Ray Williams. Next year's Bobcats will miss these boys.

E. Cannon and others. Teams were selected from the committees and assigned to contact individuals and business firms in town next Monday, December 1. Hope was divided into four zones with a team to work each zone. The four teams will consist of the following members: Earl Clifton, C. A. Armitage, Harry Hawthorne, Aubrey Albritton, Jack Lowe, Scott Phillips, Ralph Lehman, W. C. Gentry, Ben Owen and Frank King. These teams are to meet at the Chamber of Commerce office next Monday morning at 9:30. A special committee to contact donors of larger amounts was appointed composed of: Guy Basye, Sid McMath, Franklin McLarty and Albert Graves. J. I. Lieblong, chairman of the Library Board, asked that the school superintendents and principals in different schools o£ the ing the old Brookwood School in Ward one and to construct a new grammer school in Ward 2. Both projects have long been needed in Hope. At present there t is no grade school in Ward 2, arid I the old Brookwood building is in deplorable condition. The new Brookwood school will be reconstructed off the highway. 200 Additional County Homes Get Electricity Rural electric lines of Hempstead county have been extended 40 miles during the first nine months of 1947 by Southwestern Gas and Electric Company. This extension has made electric power available to over 200 additional rural homes in the county, it was announced by C. L. Leighton, DeQueen. Arkansas division manager. This construction is part of the five year expansion program undertaken by Southwestern during which time $25,000,000 will be spent »to insure an adequate supply of electricity to all areas ser ved by the company. The Arkansas division of Southwestern comprises the counties of Hempstead, Howard, Pike, Polk, Little River and Sevier. Division offices' are located in DeQueen. Shortly, after :the : first of the •year, ; Southwestern* 'employed the Guthrie Electrical Construction Company to build electric lines in the Arkansas division. Since then, 464 poles have been set to bring electricity to 212 rural homes near McCaskill and Bingen. It is estimated that 100 additional homes will be connected near Washington. Blevins, Tokio, Bingen and Saratoga during the last three months of 1947. "I would like to publicly express my appreciation to Congressman Oren Harris, Hempstead County Agent Oliver Adams, County Surveyor J. G. Prescott and leading :ownship citizens who have lent :heir support in this rural electrification program in Hempstead county," Leighton said.

House Committe to Investigate Other Officers By HOWARD DOBSON Washington, Nov. 28—(#>)— The congressional hunt for fraud in war contracting moves into the house wing ;pf .the capltol next week withi an advance hint that more unii'a formed-purchasing officers may b'e| called to account. •• !# Rep. Bender (R-Ohio), chairman, of:an expenditures subcommittee m charge of the inquiry, told a reporter today he is not out to compete' with the Senate War Investigating committee but thinks ' his group will, match the record of the Senate, body. It was a war investigating subcommittee which unearthed'.the .story of Maj. Gen. Bennett E. Mayers' extra-curricular activities as an air force purchasing , officer. , .Those disclosures, including the secret, ownership of a Dayton, Ohio subcontracting' firm, already have cost the'retired.general his §550 a month 'pension and brought the threat of prosecution in both civil and military courts. "We are not hunting headlines, ' Bender said, "but we have been working hard on this (House Committee inquiry) for several months. We have- jurisdiction over all purchasing, military and the rest, and we haye; some fraud cases on plane contracts ready to go." Bender declined to comment on any specific case. But he said investigators have been looking into the relations of several wartime purchasing oficers with manufacturers later listed as having been highly overpaid by the government. The committee, he \added. plans to retrace these transactions to determine whether any of the officers were being cat in on the contracts. Inforrnation on which the Bender group's investigation is being based primarily was turned over to Congress early this year by the general accounting office."" "^ In this>;,report, the GAO charged that many army and navy officers who handled wartime contracts have since gone to work for manufacturers, whose contracts they renegotiated when the war was over. The committee's first session on Monday will be held behind closed doors. On- Tuesday it will open hearings on a GAO audit of the reconstruction finance corporation. This was rnade at-the committee's requeaVby: T:-~Golerrian~Ahdrew's'- of Richmond, ;Va. While the grand jury which began looking into the Meyers case earlier this week is in recess until Monday, it was learned that President Truman has asked for a list of all armed service officers who have been given disability retirments since V. J. Day. Meyers' name would be on any such list. He was retired in August, 1945, after undergoing treatment for a nervous breakdown. The list, was requested by Maj. Gen. Harry. H.

A Little Touch of the Old Barbershop Harmony Would Not Hurt Foreign Ministers By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst The Big Four Foreign Ministers' conference in London, summoned to write the German and Austrian peace treaties which are so vital to the rehabilitation of chaotic Europe, technically has got under way after the usual Bolshevist damning of the Western Democracies and sharp retorts from the latter. Youd think that, with the welfare of humanity at stake, this historic quartet (America, Britain, France and Russia) would get busy and produce the goods. However, from dismal experience we know that the mere fact they've begun operations without actual bloodshed doesn't by any means give assurance that there will be real pro- progress depends gress. Successful mainly on one thing, and that is whether all the Big Four really want progress, or rather whether all want the same kind of progress. On this score there is plenty of evidence of a wide and seemingly unbridgeable divergence of view between Russia and the Democracies. Moscow has declared war to the knife against the Marshall Plan for the rehabilitation of Western Europe. Rehabilitation of Germany is essential to the Rehabilitation of Europe. Consequently one can only expect Russia to avoid any sort of German treaty which would aid the Marshall project. Thus I'm afraid we must conclude that 7nuch of what takes place at the London conference will be maneuvering for strategic position in the continental struggle. The quartet of foreign ministers in this drama rank among the outstanding statesmen of our time.

His language is colorful, two-fisted and often indiscreet — sometimes apparently intentionally so. He has a sand-paper humor, with which he roughs his enemies no end. He is a foe of Communism, but has worked tirelessly for an agreement with Moscow. Then we have General George Marshall of the U. S. A. He is 67, a military genius who has been placed by President Truman as "at the head of the great commanders of history." Marshall has brought to the position of secretary of state the logic which enabled him to direct America's overall strategy in the> world war. He is ordinarily quiet and soft spoken — but he knows what he wants, is determined and is quite capable of raising the roof if necessary. Georges Bidault, 46, is one of the men of the hour in France's battle to escape the clutches of Communism. He has served in many positions — as president of the provisional government in 1046, as premier and numerous times as foreign minister. A wartime resistance leader, Bidault now is titular head of the "Popular Republican Movement," the parly to which France's new premier— Robert Schuman — belongs. Bidault is royally hated by Communism, because he has been staunchly supporting the Marshall plan. His philosophy is that "it is a sin" to despair. And finally we have Vyacheslav Molotov, 57, an "old Bolshevist" who perhaps is closer to Marshall Stalin than is any other Russian. In any event, Molotov stands at the Solivet leader's right hand, as he has done since the days of the Bolshevist revolution in 1917.

In his reply, Molotov declared; "For the sake of the earliest restoration,of peace in the Far East and affording to Japan and her people" corresponding conditions of peaceful development, the Soviet government proposes to convene in January, 1948, a special session of the council of foreign ministers, comprising representatives of China, the U.S.A., the U.S.S.R. and Great Britain, to discuss the question of the preparation of the peace settlement for Japan.
