The occasion was the opening of a new movie in which nis ads tell us, he appears in the role of a "modern Raris Bluebeard w'ho gaily marries and murders. Up to a point, the story would rn. e . m t° be autobiographical, for L-napiin na^s married four limes and there was another exploit in w ii . he scduccd a stage-struck 2irl, who had been beguiled to his Tiohsion, and got her pregnant. She :nen was railroaded out of town but came back, disturbed his secluded neace and this time, got 30 days in jail. Disclosing her preg- lancy then, she was released and had her baby and the disclosure ensued in court of a personal character which the old public had never suspected in the wistful elf in the low-comedy hat, i shoes.

And so are two supreme court lustice, three cabinet members Bobby Jones, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, Walter Hagen, Gene Tunney Carl Hubbell, Jack Dempsey and — if he can make it — Babe Ruth. The plan for this tournament grew out of an idea of Attorney General Tom Clark's. Clark, along with FBI Chief J Edgar Hoover, was worried about the rapid rise in juvenile delinquency. How could it be stopped? The best way, he figured, was to get the kids interested in something else — like sports — before they got interested in crime. The tournament, sponsored by t, pants and L he Washington Post and managed myard moral by s P° rts Editor Bas Ham, will serve lo: 1. Attract nationwide attention to the campaign to get more youngsters interested in sports'. 2. Raise money for kids' sports. It will be a two-day medal play meet, and Ham today announced this lineup for the first clay: Clark, Eisenhower. Supreme Court Justice Reed. Admiral Chester Nimitz, scorer.

As to his whole income tnat, of course, is untrue. Furthermore, during his rising ..yen-.-'s and his greatest prosperity, most of his income came directly frnrn the American public. The taxe-i then were so low that he could keep most of it as he undoubtedly did lor ho is very frugal, as the meafe- prness of his productions and his treatment of the pregnant girl A further fact is that, for several years, Chaplin tried to save money m his income taxes by representations that another man was his partner, -in -business. In the last year of Herbert Hoover's presidency, however, the treasury insisted that this man had returned £L ,. of the monc y to Charlie and Unaplm was compelled to pay a deficiency of $1.174,000. In 1 his belief that the United States is a sort of public fee country club offering hospitality and service to all .comers in return for money, Chaplin is obdurately mistaken. He has not learned that this is a nation of loyal citizens conducted entirely in their own interest, for the specific purpose of promoting their own general welfare and securing the blessings of liberty to themselves and their prosperity.

It's certainly the largest, most complete brochure that ever cams out of Fayettevllle. A "must" collection of data for spoils writers and radio fans, this Razorback bible includes the 1947 Arkansas grid rosier — of 93 nvir a statistical history of football since the sport was inaugurated at the university in 1894; statistical reviews of the Razorbacks and the Southwest Conference race of last year; game-by-gamc review of the Razorbacks' title-winning drive in story form; schedules of all conference members; information about the U. of A.'s all-time greats and Porker ahtlcles killed in World War Two; similar records in basketball and countless sidelights. The Arkansas "dope book" is different from most of its kind but right in line with athletic director — Gird Boss John Barnhill's policy of never crawling out on a limb. It doesn't contain a word about Razorback prosnects. But one shouldn't find it difficult to draw his own conclusions after a glance or two at the roster.

Cincinnati Chaplin sat out two wars involving his native Britain. In the second one he plainly evinced a certain attitude toward the young sons of the American men and women who had laughed him into riches in their own youth by his conspicuous failure to try to entertain these American boys even in the safety of the camps in the United States. His suggestion, in his press conference, that his two sons of one of his early, short-term marriages, were his personal vicars in the Third Army in Europe is a fair expression of his character. Chaplin's only memorable contribution lo the general war effort was a recording of a salute to the Soviet Armies which closed with the words, "Russia, the future is yours" Some Americans have asked why trip.' 18 12 15 14 . 15 15 12 in 13 18 10 17 11 Ifl .090 .517 .300 .444 .41!) .370 .3G7 W.

Ward & Son The Leading Druggist Phone 62 Washington, May 13 — (/P) — Undersecretary OL State Dean Acheson declared today world wide understanding of thc United States — its objectives, its principles, and its hopes — would end '•foolish talk" that it follows policies of reaction and imperialism. An understanding is the aim of the Statt- Department's inernaion- al broadcass, he said, summing up thc parpo.se as: "To cover thc earth wilh truth." Ache.son testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on legislation which would .authorize a 310,000,000-a-yoar information program by the department. During the war, the department sot up a cultural and information division which now makes the broadcasts, including a "Voice of America" program beamed to Russia. It asked Congress for $31,3f!1.220 to continue those activities in ihe 12 months beginning July 1, but the House Apprupnaions Committee voted ap.ains-t giving it any funds. The committee said Congress never had authorized such activities. The measure before the Foreign Atfairs Commtitee v.ould simply authorize such activities. The matter of an appropriation to finance them still would have to go through the Appropriations Committee. While Achcson was testifying. Chairman Tabcr til-NY) of the Appropriations Committee discussed the issue at a news conference. These were his main points: 1. He indicated willingness to approve a $5,000,000 or $0.000.000 program "it it's cleaned up and they get rid of the incompetents." 2. He would nut agvec to including any money for the program in the general Slate Department appropriation bill which came up in Ihe Hu.ise today. Separate legislation such as i:; before the Foreign Affairs Committee will have lu be passed, he said, before he will agree to any appropriation. In additii.ni to supplying $219.128,053 for thc State Department for the fiscal year starting July f, the appropriations bill called up in the House carries $103,396,500 for the Jasticc Deparimenl. $191,0:57,000 or the. Commerce Department and $16,44(j.450 for the federal judiciary. _u.aai ,4 JL Protection Against Army Asked By PETER KALISCHER Tokyo, Ma y!3 — (UP) — Sir William Webb,, president of the international war crimes tribunal trying Japanese leaders, today 'asked Gen. Douglas MacArthur to nrptect the tribunal against "lying misrepresentations" by the U. S. Army newspaper Stars and Stripes. Webb, an Australian, denounced Stars and Stripes — "the wretched publication" — for its trial reporting. He said it belated the ribunal in Japanese eyes. At the opening of today's court session, the president took the newspaper to task particularly for its reporting of Monday's session. He said the story was "so :aill of gross misrepresentations that it must be rewritten to be corrected." "I know that no correction will be made, but I appeal to thc supreme commander to protect this tribunal against the wreched pub- licaiun." ho said. "I am sure my country would not huve agreed to take part in this trial in Tokyo hud it know'n that (he official occupaion newspaper would have been allowed by lying misreprcsenations to belittle the tribunal in the eyes of the Japanese people." The article to which he took par- ticMlar exception reported that the tribunal deemed he defense panel "uncpopraive" in preparing and distributing its opening statement on the Russian phase of thc case. "Thc tribunal did not accuse he defense of being uncooperaive," Webb said. "The term 'uncooperative' was not employed by anybody." The Stars and Stripes account was written by Cpl. Frank Parsons, Clifton Forge, Va. It described Webb's statement in which lie called the attention of the defense to the fact that one tribunal member was apprehensive over possible slurs or insults to various Allied powers that might be contained in the defense statement. Defense Attorney Ben Bruce Blakeney, according to parsons' story, replied to Webb's remarks by saying, "I resent them most bitterly." | Inspection of the court record showed that Webb did not use the I word "uncooperative." Just before! the noon recess he did state that "the defense are refusing to produce a certain document to the tribunal." The document related 10 the Russian phase of the defense case. There was no .immediate comment en Webb's remarks from MacArlhur's office or Stars and Stripes. o DeGasperio Hands in Resignation as Italian Head Rome, May 13—W—Premier Alci DC Gasperi handed his resignation today to provisional President En- rcu De Nicola as Socialists and Christian Democrats charged each other with responsibility for the collaplse of his coalition government. A communique from the Christian Democratic premier' s press office said De Gasperi was resigning because of Socialist attacts on him yesterday. The three party coalition has been torn with dissension over Italy's debt problem.

Their luturu didn't look any too bright as ihey tackled the hieh-fl-ying Lookouts in a four-game road- scries. But today, the Chicks \v'ore in fifth place and the erstwhile second-place Lookouts were in .[onrlh just a notch -above them •— and by only -n 'game and a half-margin at that. Following the Doc's prescription — the Chicks got the pitching and they won four straight over Chattanooga. The belated rounding into form of Homer Spragins, plus victories by three absolute newcomers tn Hie Chick staff accounted :'or the four vital' Victories, topped oft by Ken Polivka's work in sotting down the Lookouts on,, seven hils his! night as Memphis won 1 to 1.
