Jndia has sought for many years tfef.be free of rule by white men, her tradition and cultural civilization being older than that of her British- rulers. But as the British approached the matter of declaring India independent of the empire they collided with that other, and most ominous, 'problem ' — what would happen to the Mohammedan minority, if India were freed as a single .state? So India, was divided, and then there was new fighting because the majority Hindus wanted control 01 the Moham- r»adans also. ; In Palestine there was trouble with the original Arab owners because the Jews, fleeing persecution in Europe, had bought indiv- ual homesites in the Promised .Land—-and. then sought legal protection' against the Arab majority by having tne new Jewisn stale declared Iree and independent. Britain, unhappy sponsor of Palestine, couJa not mase this partition alone without inviting a noly war by the Arabs alt the way f|$m Egypt to India. But the United Nations could—and did. .There may be continuing trouble in both India and Palestine but eventually human reason will find a Way to peace and prosperity. The abili.vy ot the world to work together for common progress was never, better demonstrated than in the two partitioning actions just taken in India and Palestine. * * > By S.

The Foreign Affairs Corirmittee voted tentatively last week to trim to $489,000,000 the $597,000,000 that President Truman asked for win- er relief for France, Italy and to add $60,The Republican conference in- cl « d ed the Steering Committee, which shapes party policy in the House, and Republican members of the Foreign Affairs Committee. in the Senate, a vote appeared near on a $597,000,000 bill.

Two of those countries, Italy and Austria, would share in the relief to be provided under the stop-gap measure which leaders '.^oped the Senate would approve by nightfall without major changes. Johnson told a reporter he wants assurances that it will not be too severe a strain on American supplies to pile almost $600,000,000 in purchases of food, fuel and clothing on top of buying already being done for the earlier relief program. "If only $100,000,000 has been spent," he said, "the rest represents a checking account on our dwmdling supply of grain and other food. If we pile $600,000,000 more on that now, I want to know what ts going to happen." President Truman's report to Continued on Page Two High Court Rules on Liquor Coses , Little Rock, Dec. 1 — (IP) —The 1B47 act prohibiting possession of more than one gallon of liquor in dry territory is not applicable where possession of a smaller quantity "is for the purpose of sale m violation of law", the supreme court declared today. The decision affirmed a Craighead Circuit Court judgment upholding a 1250 Justice of the Peace court fine against Art Jaynes of Caraway on a charge of possessing intoxicating liquor for sale in drv territory. ; Jaynes was charged with possession of three quarts of wine and one pint of whiskey and contended that under Act 91 if 1947 he was not in violation of ffle law. Act 9] provides thai 'it shall be unlawful x x x to possess in any county in which it is unlawful to manufacture, well, barter, loan or give . away intoxicating liquors, more than one irallon of spiriuos vinous or malt liquors." The high court held that this statute has no application where possession of a quantiy of intoxicating liquor, less than a gallon, is for the purpose of sale in violation of law." In another case involving possession of intoxicating liquor in a dry county, the court ordered 54 1-2 pinls of whiskey, confiscated in Nevada county, destroyed. The decision reversed an order of the Nevada Circuit Court which directed return of the liquor to Flnyd Jones from whom it was taken. Jones entered a plea of guilty to possessing licaior for sale in dry territory and the Prescott mayor ordered the confiscated liquor destroyed. Jones filed a replivin suit and the circuit court ordered the liquor returned. The supreme court held Act 423 of 1947, which directs confiscated liquor to be turned over to the revenue commissioner, was not in effect at that time, and holding the mayor properly ordered destruction, reversed the circuit court judgment and dismissed Jones' action. The court also affirmed the Sa- 'me circuit court sentence of life imprisonment for Charlie "Boots" Willis, convicted on charges of rape and incest against his 15-year olri daughter. Because the plaintiff failed to offer any evidence of his intention to become a bona fide resident of Arkansas, the court reversed a Garland Chancery decree avvard: ne Joseph Newton Swanson a divorce from Maudie Fronkier Swanson. The supreme court declared while Arkansas courts have jurisdiction in a case such as this x x we think justice will best served by remitting these parties to the courts of Oklahoma — the stale of their domicile." The court appointed Blake Downie, Little Rock. E. M. Anderson. Magnolia, and W. W. McCrary Lo- uoke, to the state board of bar examiners. Downie succeeds himself to complete an unexpired term and McCrary and Anderson suc- c-ed George E. Pike, DeWilt, and Claude Grumpier, El Dorado whose term expired.

Cab drivers who strike up a conversation, or agree with vour gripes just to earn a bigger tip.

Thousands of persons were stranded by the shutdown, which the Ministry of Industrial Production finally announced had become 100 percent effective after it had struggled throughout the morning to keep a fe\y trains moving. The power strike was called in a countrywide attempt to halt all industry and force Premier Schuman's week-old coalition cabinet to accede to the wage demands of the Communist-dominated General Confederation of ; Labor,- (CGT). Schuman, who won the National Assembly's approval last night of his decision to call up 80,000 more reservists to maintain order in France, went before the assembly again today to seek approval of the remainder of his emergency measures. Communists members of -the assembly immediately launched a determined atlack upon the government's program in an effort to modify the curbs sought by the premier. The session soon became tumul- luous as the Communist benches interrupted governments speakers with catcalls and exchanged violent verbal sallies with Rightist members. The assembly session was suspended for two hours at 1 p. m, when the tumult grew so loud that neither the chairman nor the speakers could be heard. 0 Lions Challenge Kiwanians to Donkey Cage Game The Hope Lions Club went on :ecord today in issuing a chal- enge to the Kiwanis Club to participate in a Donkey Basketball game at the High School gym Tuesday, December 9.

Whether the Kiwanians will accept the challenge probably will be decided at the noon luncheon tomorrow. All monty derived from the game ,vill be turned over -to the new Hope and Hempstead County Library fund. The regular Lions meeting will be held tonight when members entertain their ladies.
