FijpStx HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tuesday, July 16, 1946 Mihailovic and : 23 Others to Firing Squads By GEORGE PALMER * Belgrade, " July 15 — <#)— Gen. TJraja Mfhailpvic, former Chetnik lead^. arid 10 of his 23 co-defendants were convicted today by a .Yugoslav military c.o u r t on charges of collaborating with the Germans and were sentenced to die 'be'f ore "firing squads. 'The bushy bearded defendant, the first underground leader to attract wide attention during the •war, was given eight and a half hours to appeal for leniency from the presidium of the Yugoslav parliament. The deadline is 8 p. m. (1 p. m. Central Standard Time). Mihailovic became minister of war to former King Peter's exiled •government in London. American and British officers served «t his mountain headquarters as liaison PIN-WORMS tlf\ f New Treatment W« Gets Real Results People don't like to talk about Pin-Worm infection. Sometimes they are too embarrassed to mention the tormenting rectal itching. And in many cases they have not known of any effective way to deal with this pest that lives inside the human body. Today, thanks to a special, medically recognized drug (gentian violet), a highly effective treatment has been made possible. This drag is the vital ingredient in P-W, the Pin-Worm tablets developed in the laboratories of Dr. D. Jayne & Son. The small, easy-to-take P-W tablets act in a special way to remove Pin-Worms. So if you suspect Pin-WOrms in your child or yourself, ask your druggist for a package of JAYNE'S f-W right away, and follow the directions. Satisfaction, guaranteed or your money back. • It's easy to remember: P-W for Pin-Worms! officers during the last years of the war, . • • Prison sentences ranging downward to 18 months were imposed on the remaining defendants. It was not immediately announced how soon the death sentences would be carried out. Two of those sentenced to die were tried and convicted in absentia. Sentenced to be shot with Mi- hailovic were: Redoslav Rade Radich, 56-year- old former commander of the Bratislav Chetnick unit. Milos Glisch, 36-year-old Chetnik leader. Oskar Pavlovich, 54,, former Zagreb police chief. Dragi Yovanovich, 44, former Belgrade police chief. Tanasje-Tasa Dinich, 45, former minister of the interior in the puppet government of Milan Nedic, who told the court: "I don't want to live after the crimes I have committed." Velibor Yonich, 54, minister of education in the Nedic government. Peter Zhivkovich, former Yugoslav general sentenced in absentia. Djuro Dokich, 72, former commerce minister accused of conspiring for forced shipment of worker into Germany. Kosta Kusick, 49, former aide de camp to King Peter and Queen Mary. Mladen Zujeich, 51, former Chet- nick commander believed to be in Paris and sentenced in absentia. Konstantin Fotich. former Yugoslav ambassador to the United Staes, who was sentenced in absentia to 20 years in prison. The crowd cheered when the verdict was announced against Mi- hailovic, who took the decision with outward calm. The verdict against the Serbian born Chetnik leader and his fellow defendants climaxed a trial which began July 10. Mihailovic maintained stoutly throught the proceedings that he was innocent of collaboration with the Nazis and that he had fought to drive them from the country. Ask Reduction in Rates of Southwestern Little Rock, July 15 —W)— The western Gas and Electric Company of Shreveport, La., serving GO Arkansas Public Service Coni- mision today to show cause Sept. 9 why the commission should not take action to effect a reduction of the utility's electric rates in this state. The order said informal conferences of commision and company officials "in an effort toward the reduction of electric rates now charged the consumers of the company" in Arkansas had not resulted in an agreement. • The order added that preliminary investigations led the commission to believe "that there are sufficient grounds to justify a ior- mal investigation." The company specifically was directed to show cause why the com- mision should not: Establish as a rate base an "original cost" on the utility' proper- tie used in Arkanas; Order elimination of "such profits as accure" to the company's affiliates through placed in a separate fund for annual distribution as a refund to the company's 18,288 customers; Establish a composite rate 'or "actual maintenance and depreciation expense applicable to the respondent's property used x x x in xxx Arkansas.

"ead today from the venom of a ig rattler. j "There is no state law to prevent 1 ' hem from worshiping with snakes r anything else," said an officer. Joe Jackson, 51, of Oltewah, Tenn., died during a week - end meeting only 45 minutes after a our-foot rattler sank its fags into us left hand. 'Oh. Lord, I can't let you down," Fackson moaned as the poison crept through his veins. He was carried from the religious service o the home of a friend nearby where some 25 fellow cultists gathered around him for prayers. No medical aid was summoned. Jackson's death was the second nere in little over nine months as a result of the snake meetings, When the other victim was buried on Sept. 3, 1945, rattlers and copperheads writhed on the open cas- l as ministers of the strange religious sect eulogized the departed's faith.

The officer, who visited the highly secret animal ship Burleson, said the animals may appear healthy and have a normal blood count one day and just "drop off the next day." When asked whether the animals would be taken to the United Stales for studies of the effect of radiati9ii, as had been announced, the officer asked in return, "what animals?" The inference was that the studies might all have to be oosl-mor- terns. Amazing pig 311, fished from the waters of the lagoon after the blast, is still alive, an officer reported. Ho said, however, he understood the pig was beginning to show signs of radiation damage, and was being given penicillin and other treatments.

Molotov arc in apparent agreement on one point of international policy. Both are opposed to a decentralized, agrarianicd Germany. Last February Mr. Landon made a speech in which he denounced "thi! iniquitous Morgenthau plan for defeated Germany," which called for decentralized government and an agrarian economy. Now .vMr. Molotov. in presenting Russia's * plan for Germany, naif rejected such a setup,- although he didn't use such blunt words or mention Mr. Morgcnlhau's name. This brief moment of accord may be coincidence, and ono can only guess at the reasons behind it. Mr. Landon may have been thinking only of domestic politics in his denunciation. But he may also have seen in an industrialized and united Germany a buffer against Communist expansion. Mr. Molotov may also view a strong Cor- -j.many as a buffer—though, naturally, against a different sort of encroachment. Russia's shift lo Mr. Landon's way of thinking (if it may be expressed thus) is rather recent. Earlier it appeared that Russia favored ii decentralized Germany. What caused tho change can only be guessed at. Reparations may have something to do with the official Russian policy on Germany. Russia suffered deep economic wounds at the Nazi invaders' hands. They will be slow fj'io heal. C'orl a inly she deserves reparations, and as certainly as she lias iceeivcd some in the large bites ol German territory which she has taken for herself and her close associate, Poland. Yet recently Russia mentioned the sum of $10,()l)0,()0(),0()[) for further reparations. If any such .sum should be Gei many, from Na/.i aggression should demand and hi. 1 awarded comparable .amounts, an industrialized Germany with a large loriegn trade «,;vould be indispensable, oven though such demands would probably be as ruinous to Germany as an agrarian economy. As lor unification, experience thus far seems lo have proved Mr. Landon and Mr. Molotov righl. At least, the zone arrangement of German occupation and control hasn't been .satisfactory— although Russian seems lo have less cause for complaint than the oilier powers. None of the zones has been en- liiel.v self-sufficient. And their V/licrmclic ioslalion, both economic and political, lias been a source ot trouble and expense, at least lo the western Allies. If occupation is to continue over a long per- tion. Sweeps Home Precinct El Dorado, July 17 —(/P)— Rep.

"Of course the pr«sidcnt would sign the bill if we put such things as meat, eggs and bultar back under coinrois," Taft said. "I have no desire to compromise the bill.
