I <g IS r? J i HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Harris Blasts Opponents in Address Warren, Ark. July 2 (Special)— Congressman Oren Harris in addressing a crowd of 2000 Bradlev County citizens here tonight in hi? campaign for re-election stressed the outstanding points for his- record and blasted his opponents for misrepresenting that record. Citing the congressional record 'Mr. Harris showed how he had voted on controversial issues and declared his opponents had no right to misrepresent his record even if they disagreed with how he stood on issues, Touching upon the charge that land obtained for the government :m constructing the Hope Proving Grounds would never be returned to the owners. Mr. Harris told of now the government is now leasing the acreage to former owners with the provisio that they can ultimately repurchase their formef lands. This is but one of the ridiculous charges that have been launched .against him by two young inexperienced opponents who know of no "'her _ way to obtain votes, he said Giving an account of his stew- I'ardship as congressman for the Seventh District during the vears since 1940, Mr. Harris listed the .things which ha had accomplished .despite the pressure of war and reconversion. These included the federal road program which assures $21,000 000 in federal funds for Arkansas— to be matched by a like amount by tne state —and administered by the Arkansas Highway Commission." pis road program envisages a system of farm to market roads so long needed in the states Mr. Harris was a leading figure in tne congressional work to -form a national aviation program.

Further, he added he aided to the utmost of his ability in obtaining war industries for the whole district and noted that a majority of them are in the process of being converted to peace time industries, assuring continued employment for the area. The Ozarks 'Ordnance plant will turn out cheap fertilizer for the state and south and other plants will contribute to the general welfare he asserted. These arc but a few of the benefits received by the district during his service as congressman, Mr. Harris said. But they refute any statement that he has not been on his toes in obtaining such benefits for -constituents. Experience in Washington was a major factor in obtaining these projects and only experience can serve for such purposes, he concluded. All-ies Fear Trouble Bubbles in Trieste Wednesday, July 3, 1946 Navy Accused ofWithholding Information New York, July 2 —(UP> — Two radio correspondents charged today that navy censorship at Kwa- jalein prevents correspondents on the scene from reporting whether the atomic bomb test at Bikini atoll was a success of "an abysmal failure." George M o o r a d, Columbia Broadcasting System, and William Chaplin. National Broadcasting Company, said that they had flown over Bikini lagoon for more than an hour at low altitude observing the damage done by the bomb, but that censorship prevented them telling their stories. Chaplin reported that after he returned from the flight he was handed an order he described as "flat censorship preventing , duly accredited cooresnondents from passing on their knowledge of the army-navy test to the public." But for the order, he said, he "could tell the public facts which might help straighten out what is now worldwide confusion as to . whether this atom test was a howl- in>* success or an abysmal Hop." Chaplin said that he could give some mute evidence" of the power of the bomb, and told of seeing 20 white rats which had ridden through the atomic cloud on drone radio-controlled planes. "Those rats," he said, "sent into the radio-active cloud where no man dared tread, are just as chipper today as any rats I have ever known." Veteran Clown Had Kids Laughing When He Died St. Louis, July 2 — OP) —Arthur Borella, 72, vaudeville performer who has been' making people laugh for half a century, put on a I special clown act with a strange ending today. Although he hadn't been a headliner for years. "Old Art" had asked for a special spot on the show for crippled children alt Shriners' hospital, which included several acts from the annual Shriners' Circus here. "Let me go on and I'll do a terrific act for the kids," he said to show director Tom Packs. Wearing a frock coat and stovepipe hat, he had even the other clowns laughing with his ad lib- bing. "Now follow me, kids,' 'he said as he started playing "Jingle Bells" on his battered violin. The kids, relaxing in wheelchairs, on cots and in the grass back of the hospital, joined in and sang at the top of their lungs. He threw his arms into the air as the music ended, toppled back- Girl Tells of Bad Treatment From Officer Huston, July 2 — (UP) —Petite Helen Stavrou, shapely 111-year-old former Hulyoke typist, told a su pcnor court jury today how she grilled her tooth and stiffened her body to resist crying out against the agony ol having lighted cigar- cites pressed against her breasts. Uncior re-direct examination bv Assistant District Attorney Edward M, Sullivan, Miss Stavrou said the branding of her breasts was by far more painful than the brands Lt. Thomas Karrell, 2-1, of Somerville is accused of putting on her hips and logs. "Describe the degree of pain when he burned your breasts," Sullivan asked. "The sweat stood out all over Army Eng. The guardhouse in Lichfield, me," she said. "I was shaking all over, I gritted my teeth and stiffened my body. I could hardly stand it." Tho burning of her legs was not quite so painful, she said, but at times a numbness overcome her. When Sullivan asked why she had delayed reporting the events she contends took place during a 17th floor hotel room orgy. Miss Stavrou answered: "I didn't report it right away because 1 didn't know whom to go to. I was in agony and pain. ! was humiliated and ashamed and I didn't want the publicity." .Earlier in the day. under cress examination bv Defense Attorney Herbert I- 1 .

Success of Rodeo Points to Annual Event In this growing livestock country iiilmosl any rodeo is guaVanlecd a pretty good turnout—bill Ihe crowds which jammed Mope July 3 and 4 ',>for Ihc Flying V Rodeo suggest the ," wisdom of combining Ihc Indepon- i dcncc holiday and a first class rodeo ns an annual event. Many a town in the Wcsl has built up this combination lo fantastic heights, featuring nol only the rodeo but Pioneers' day and other Homecoming attractions. We formerly had the Walermolon festival—seven of them— and now the growth of livestock suggests • that we make a July Fourth rodeo i.our seasonal hot-spot, particularly since il suggests also the Third District Livestock Show lo come in the Fall, / . This is not Hie first successful rodeo in our city, by any means. I recall about 15 years ago a rodeo staged by Hope's firemen on July Fourth. The holiday came on a Saturday. Some of the business cstablishmcnls dcbalcd Ihc matter of closing because Saturday is our banner sales day. But the firemen had gone to great work and expense jfto pul on this pioneer rodeo, and we vigorously urged the town to close up regardless of whether H was Saturday or nol. The town did close. And the rodeo was a howling success. And thai was one of Ihc things thai helped, back in Ihc early days of livestock here, to make this July X ourtn s program so successful Again, we say, it ought to' be an annual event. * * * By JAMES THRASHER ' Short Course in Double Talk '."t We were interested and considerably disappointed to read of the brief bul intensive course in poli- n C ?',° ffc , rcd A by - the Na t'onal Citizens Political Action Committee in Washington. Few will argue against the statement that year- round political action, or at least political consciousness, by a large body of voters is essential courses in the, NC-PAC curruculum might leave one feeling dubious. Here, for instance, are some condensed excerpts from the ^course taughl by Joseph Bcrger described as a professional ghostwriter of the Democratic National Committee: . "You are right. . .your opponent is wrong—not just half wrong. . . Concede points graciously to your opponent when you can add the stinger that turns tham to your own advantage. Never concede anything otherwise. . .If you recognize any of Ihc opposition's arguments it should be only for the purpose of allack—exposing dishonesty, hypocrisy,^ incompetence, irrosponsibi- Now lhal is Ihe sorl of Ihink- ing and argument to which voters are subjected in every political campaign. It is a hallowed technique employed by all parlies, ac- ccpled wilh longue in check by all but Ihc mosl naive cilizcns, and endured largely for Ihc laughs it gives. This technique is compounded cf evasion, innuendo, exaggeration hypocrisy and a dellbsrate intent to mislead. It makes wide, un' , abashed use of half-truths in an •'attempt to prove Ihe impossible contention that everything the speaker and his party do is right, and that the opponent and his party are motivated by a treasonable desire lo ruin Ihe country. That is scarcely the dialectic method of Socrates. Rathar, it is •a technique designed lo generale heat and exclude light, to inflame Ihe emolions and benumb Ihc reason. It proceeds from the premise that the average voter is a meathead, and hence aims its appeal i ..at the least inlclligenl members of Ihe clecloralc. All this is endurable once in two years because, through unshakable tradition, it has lo bn endured, and because Ihe duration of high-pitch campaigning is mercifully short. Bul to suggest a continuous barrage of these tiresome harangcs is an insult lo the candidates thai the NC-PTC supports and the voters to whom il commends them. The NC-PAC, despite the occas- sional espousal of a Republican, is basically a liberal Democratic tflgroup interested in seeing liberal Democrats clocted. Naturally, there is nothing wrong with that, nnS nothing to prevent their using any legal means of trying to put their candidates in office. But il does seem as if Ihc NC- PAC is muffling an opportunity for real public service. The group is designated as a committee of citi- xcns, not politicians. And there are some very intelligent men al ils helm. They might do a valuable job of promoting a better-informed ...electorate by stimulating calm and - -'intelligent, discussion of important political issues. There arc enough of such issues, goodness knows, and there is need of a wider and more inlelliesnl ' undcrslanding of Ihem.

May By ANN HICKS Washington, July 5 — (UP) —An army witness told the Senate War Investigating Committee today that Rep. Andrew J. May, D., Ky.. went. "beyond the limits of propriety" in intervening with the War Department in behalf of potential war contractors. The statement made by Col. John Slezak, was read into the committee's record by Maj. Gen. Levin H. Campbell. Jr., former head of army ordnance. Campbell himself testified that May — who is chairman of ihe House Military Affairs Committee — subjected him to "pressure" in behalf of a mid-western "paper empire" that received millions of dollars in war orders. Campbell told the Senate committee that May "importuned continually" in the interest of Dr. Henry Garsson, identified as a key executive in several of the companies now under committee scrutiny. "I should not have had to spend my lime on such a business," Campbell said bluntly. "H was unfair to the War Department." Campbell then recited a story of steps taken in March, 1944, "to protect the department against this pressure." 411 it'uing it, he read into the record Slezak's comment that Garsson "uses Congressmen May considerably, and Congressman May goes beyond the limits of propriety in getting tilings" done.' ' Washington, July 5—(UP)—Two former army officers and a pert blonde War Department seen 11 '!"" were recalled to the witness chair today as the Senate War Investigating committee sought the key to Dr. Henry Garsson's fabulous success story. Garsson. Illinois Industrialist-inventor, has been identified as the key executive in the mid-west "paper empire' 'firms whose war profits are under committee scrutiny. They handled millions of dollars worth of government war contracts. Wlincsses recalled today were: Brig. ,Gcn. Frank R. Denton (ret.), Pittsburgh, Pa., banker; Miss Dorothea C. Molander, formerly Denton's secretary; and Col. William J. Brcnnan, Jr., (ret.), Newark, N. J., attorney. According to the testimony, generals jumped when..Garsson complained. Cnairman Andrew J. May, D., Ky., of the House Military Affairs committee reportedly interceded with the War Department on Garsson's behalf. Ana Secretary of War Robert P'. Patterson was said to have directed the army's top ordnance man to pay "personal attention" to the manpower problems of Batavia Metal Products Co., one of the two main firms in the IG-company "paper empire." A government cost accountant testified that Garsson received $228,000 in salaries, ices .and partnership profits from the "empire" in 42 months. The blonde Miss Molander, clad in a black silk dress with a burst vvi.ue '.rouirou at the :ieckline, told the Senators Wednesday about a INOV. lo, 1U44, memorandum she prepared alter a War Department conference on Batavia's manpower problems. Sue deciphered four lines she had inked out in tho memo because Denton considered Ihcm "gossip." The passage contained a "report" that Batavia was awarded a shell contract because Dr. Garsson and his brother, Murray, "put pressure" on May—and May in turn "asked' 'Patterson to support Ihe contract. Brcnnan said he relayed the "rumor" at that meeting.

Bilbo Jackson, Miss., July r> — CUP) — Defeated Mississippi Senatorial Candidate Nelson Lcvings today called on the U. S. Senate, "as a last resort," to unseat Sen. Theodore Bilbo, D., Miss. The former naval commander, who ran fourth in the five-man Mississippi Democratic primary, last nignt charged Bilbo with "stealing 1 'the election. He said he would make "a personal effort to disqualify Bilbo under the corrupt practices act because of the lies ne told in his campaign." "And the U. S. Senate ,as a last resort, should unseal Bilbo because of his nefarious and shady financial ealings with grafting war contractors,' 'Levings said. Lcvings said he would also demand a recount of the votes. Judge Herbert Holmes, chairman of the state Democratic executive committee, said no such demand had yet been made. "Our Winchells and Pearsons, who stirred our Morons into action," were blamed by Lcvings for the re-election of Bilbo, o- False Tale by a Frightened Youth Touched Off Riots at Kielce in Which Many Die Ministers Set Peace Parley for July 29 By LOUIS NEVIN Paris.

APtNOT Warsaw, July 5 — (UP)— A talc spread by a frightened 8-ycnr-old boy was revealed today to have touched off the bloody anti-Semitic riot al Kielce in which 34 persons were reported killed, 42 injured and 03 arrested. Among those arrested, according to reports, were some Polish militiamen. Information from Kielce said that a youngster named Hendrlk Blasczyk had told the slory which whipped up Ihe frenzy of Ihe Kielce residents. He said lhal he had been held prisoner in Ihe basemenl of a Jewish apartment house and that he managed lo escape before the residents could murder him. The youngster, under questioning, was said to have admitted that his story was false and thai he actually had been held by a Pole named Anthony Pasowski who told him lo tell people that the Jews had held him prisoner. After the boy told his slory angry crowds galher'cd in fonrl of the aparlmcnl house localed at No. 7 Planty street. The crowds were reported to have attacked ihe Jews, sacked the .apartments and shouted: "Long Live Anders!" Government officials, including security and justice ministry representatives went to the scene to investigate. The Kiolce outburst ,lhe worsl anli-Semilic disturbance in Poland in recent limes, occurred as Poland's remaining 100,000 Jews planned a demonstration strike today in protest against the British policy in Palestine. Before Ihc Kielce outbreak, tho Central Jewish Commillee announced lhat all the Jews in Poland would put on a one-hour strike today in protest against British policy in Palestine. The strike was scheduled for 11 a.m., Polish Jews presenled a resolution of protest to the Warsaw government and to Hie ambassadors of the United States, Great Britain, Russia and France. Transfer of Airport to Hope Approved Further information regarding approval of transfer of the SPG airport to the cily of Hope was telegraphed lo- Willie Harris tndav Whether or not the strike call had anything lo do with the violence al Kielce, aulhorilies feared lhal il would serve as fuel for the flames of resentment already stirred by Ihe riot at the cily of more lhan 50,000 — including 800 Jews— soulh of Warsaw. Gen. Wiklor Grocz, a foreign office spokesman, said Ihc violence was a "lamentable aftermath to Sunday's referendum." The election itself had unreeled with relatively little friction. He said the immediate cause was the circulation of Ihc hoary old rumor that Jews in Kielce had murdered Polish babies. Armed bands raided Jewish apartmenl houses lo touch off the skirmishing. Armored cars were wheeled inlo action by the mililary in efforts to break up the forma- lions of riolers. Kielce officials said by lelephonc that scores of Jews .barricaded themselves inside a Jewish headquarters building, beat off Ihc attackers, and later sought refuge in their homes. Grocz said the allacks were organized by Fascisl elemenls who probably were members of the illegal underground organizalion NSZ, freely translated as National Armed Forces. Polish newspapers published no accounls of Ihe rioling. Aulhorilies feared lhat such publication might prompt similar incidenls in other cilies. The dead included one Polish officer and one non-Jewish member of Ihe Polish Workers parly. Grocz said he understood Ihe casualties included Ihe chairman of Ihe Kielce Jewish committee, Dr. Kahane. Whether he was dead or only wounded was not indicated. A 7 p. m. curfew was ordered in Kielce after two hours of bloodshed. The security police, who suffered several casualties, carried the brunt of the early operations. Military reinforcements were summoned, and the situation finally was brought under control.

PRICE 5c COPY New Medicine Said Better Than Penicillin By RENNIE TAYLOR Associated Press Science Repoter San Francisco ,July 5 — (IP\— A new non-poisonous killer of disease germs, described by ils sponsors ds potentially greater than pcnicil- hn, was introduced lo Ihe medical profession today. In test tubes il will kill or prevent the growth of more kinds of dangerous germs than penicillin, f, m °ng them tuberculosis, tetanus the deadly and elusive gas bacil- {us, tynhoid, dynscntcry, diphtheria, syphilis gonorrhea and the organisms which cause blood poisoning, rheumatic fever and boils. A preliminary report on its effectiveness in skin diseases, made before the American Medical Association by Dr. John G. Downing and Dr. Millard C. Hanson cf Boston, said their results generally were beller lhan with penicillin. The drug is made from an extract of oat hulls compounded with various other chemicals. The basic subslance is furacin and the compounds are called nitrofurans. The Eaton laboratories, Norwich N Y manufacturer of the substances! thus far have made about 250 different furacin compounds, only a few of which have been tried thus far.

The fact that these compounds "11 '11 -"^ •-•%. *-"i*Ji^uutJUO will kill a wide assortment of germs in test tubes or laboratory animals does not necessarily mean that they will do a satisfactory job when turned against disease organism in the human body. Two big tests remain to be made before their value in internal medicine can be finally delermined. These lesls are first, the determination of the amounts of the drugs necessary for a dose against each infection, and second, whether they will produce any undesirable reactions in the patient. It is too early yet for the experts to answer these questions. Dr. Downing told an AMA meeting thai he and Dr. Hanson had treated 212 cases of skin infection with nitrofuran; that it was successful in aboul 75 percent of them and thai Ihe patients showed fewer undesirable reactions than would have been the case had penicillin been used. Despite ils effectiveness 'when administered in solution internally, one of penicillin's drawbacks has been its tendency to cause reactions when applied directly on- surface infections. Dr. Downing said the 212 cases included ulcer, impetigo and an assortment of other infections. He said Ihe preliminary results indicated that the drug performed better than penicillin in surface Ireal- ment but lhal more lime would be required lo make a precise evalua- lion.

Food Prices Edge Higher Over Nation By United Press Somc retail food prices edged higher today and more cilies took sleps to control rents. While debate on the Office of Price Administration continued in Congress, the National Home and Property Owners Foundation reported that the mayors of "dozens of cities"— including Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Cleveland and Seattle — had're-established fair rent committees. The San Francisco board of supervisors passed an emergency rent control ordinance forbidding increases of more than 15 per cent over OPA ceilings. The Louisiana legislature was studying twin bills aimed at freezing renls at the level of June 30. In many cities there were dem. onstrations protesting increases in rents and retail food prices. Heavy Friday livestock shipments into most midwestern pac'K- mg centers reduced top hog prices by $1 to 1.25 a hundred pounds. Cattle remained uneven to steady dropping 25 cents in Chicago and Minneapolis and rising 25 cents at Omaha. Several ,,'hundred soulhwestern Wisconsin' lead .and zinc miners were i out ol work as mine operators curtailed operations because of the end of government subsidies. Operators said they could not afford to mine lead and zinc without the subsidies, which were eliminal- cd with the death of the OPA. Four Ihousand persona at Miami, Fla., met to endorse a buyers' strike to keep prices down. The Colorado Anti-Inflation Committee scheduled a march on Denver's city hall Monday nignt to protest the "attitude" of city officials concerning rent and price increases.

By EULALIE McDOWEUL Washington, July 5 —(UP)—The Republican-led baltle against the new compromise OPA extension bill branched out today inlo a fight I againsl the agency's opprnpria- lions for the new fiscal year. While administration forces struggled to bring the extension bill to the Senale floor, Sen. Slyles Bridges, R., N. H., asked the appropriations commillee to delay' action on a bill to give OPA $106,000,000 for its operation in the current iiscal year. "You can't appropriate funds for an agency thai doesn't exist," Bridges said. He asked lhat the House approved money bill be held up until congress finishes legislation t o revive the price, wage and rent controls which expired at midnight last Sunday. .Administration and Republican leaders clashed on the timing of the new OPA floor debate. Senate Democratic Leader Alben W. Barkley wanted the bill brought before Ihc Senale immediately, but Sen. Robert A. Taft insisted that debate be delayed until Monday. Sen. John H. Overlon, D., La., a member of the appropriations committee, objected to Bridges' request to sidetrack the OPA appropriation. He said OPA should be granted the funds on the understanding that congress could subsequently^ recapture any money lhat was not necessary. OPA Chief Paul Porter was waiting to testify in behalf of the appropriation when Bridges raised his objection. OPA foes predicted that the new price fight in Ihe Senale would be . more bitler lhan Ihe last Taft and his bloc again will try to end price controls on meat, poultry and dairy products. He took charge of the attack on the new bill immediately after the measure was approved, 12 to 5, last night by the Senate Banking Committee. Taft had been working with the committee all week to ?cach an acceptable compromise, but when he was out-voted in the committee show-down, he decided to carry the issues to" the Senate floor. He was backed by a goodly number of Republicans, • and promised a crashing assault against prp-OPA' forces led by Senate Democratic' Leader Alben ,W. Barkley, Ky., who predicted eventual passage of the-bill"in its present form. . , •. The measure, written in committee to meet President Truman's objections to the vetoed extension bill, would: 1. Cancel rent increases made by landlords since the old price law expired Sunday. Landlords, however, would not be required to refund money already collected as a result of the temporary rent boosts. - u 2. Allow producers their 1940 prices, plus any increased production costs since then if the OPA deems the higher prices necessary to boost production. This Barkley- sponsored plan, approved by 3 to 8 by the committee, knocks out Taft's amendment which drew the bitterest criticism from Mr. Truman in his OPA veto message. Taft would have set Oct. 1-15, 1941, as the base price period and would have made price allowances for increased production costs without specific rulings on whether Ihey were nccessar.y to increase oulput. 3. Allow distributors, wholesalers and retailers fiieir June 29, 1946, mark-ups in place of Jan. 1, 1946, mark-uns prooosetl by Senate Republican whip Kenneth S. Wherry, Neb. This plan, which would not require any cost absorptions after June 29, was unproved, 10 to 7, It was sponsored by Barkley. In most other respects, the bill is similar to the old OPA law. It retains price conlrols on meal, poul- Iry and dairy products — and that was expected lo precipitate the bitterest part of the Senate fight on Ihe bill. Even Iho anli-OPA bloc seemed generally inclined to support revival of rent controls . Barkley, while predicting that the measure would pass tho Senate and be approved by Mr. Truman, conceded a fierce battle is almost inevitable over the decontrol features. 'Taft protested that the bill as now written would give OPA "the same discretionary powers" that it had under the old law. Taft reported that at one lime yeslerday Ihe Banking commillee agreed lo junk controls over meat, poultry and dairy products, A molion made by Barkley to reconsider the vote, he said, was voted down. Then, Taft recounted, one senator indicated he wished to reverse his vole on the amendment. A subr sequent attempt to insert the de- conlrol provisions in the bill was defeated, 9 lo 8. Taft had sponsored the proposal for decontrol of meat, poultry and dairy products. Barkley said that the bill was acceptable to Price Chief Paul Porler .Porter during testimony yesterday told the committee that the bill "could be administered." Porter said he would recommend '.Tiat the president approve the measure. Taft wryly noted that the bill •ought to be acceptable to OPA since Porler wrote it." Among the senators pledged to fight tne new measure were W. Lee O'JDaniel. D.. Tex., who doesn't \v;un OPA in any form. U'Daniel IK expected to renew his filibustering tactics which broke own last week for lack of support.
