Page Two HOPE STAR, MOPE, ARKANSAS t' v V' Monarchs-of Britain Stil! Wield Strong Influence Despite Recent Criticism By DeWlTT MACKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst For the lorcigncr who has been reared in the understanding that .England's constitutional monrach has no governmental authority 5:1 his own right, there's an odd ring in the current uetitions by British housewives to their king to repeal the bread rationing which is scheduled" to become effective July ?A. "Ot.course King George can't re- x'eise'his government':: decision to ration bread and the indignant housewives .are quite well aware of that fact, although youru correspondent—having experienced Brit- n-in's partan .rationing recently— has .an understanding sympathy Witli them in their plea. Jn the present case the appeals went lo the holne ,'o'ffice to oo dealt with, and tlie .cjjances. that his majesty would be consulted about them were indeed remote. Why then, are such weJitions addressed io him? We.V. of course, tradition has sorneuiing to do with it—tradition which dates back to the days when kings ruled by divine right and were lords of all they surveyed.

Hs education includes not only schooling in affairs of the home country but of the entire empire and the world at large. Thus the ruler is supremely well equipped to deal wu.n matters of slate. It probably is true, as I have reported in this column from London six months ago. that the present ruler, George VI, is Ear less inclined to voice strong personal views than were his immediate predecessors .That would b'» nat- j ural ii for no other reason than j that he wasn't the direct .leir and (has had to acquire most of his raining since becoming king — is ?lill acquiring it, for that matter. However, his disposition not to interfere witn state affairs complements the new Socialist regime psrfectly and makes him a most acceptable monarch i'or a leftist government. George's 'grandfather. Edward VII. took a lively hand in governmental affairs at times, and the next in line, George V, was a chip oti the old block in that respect. It was during the nation-wid: general slrike of 19HG , if memory serves me right, that George V sent for the home secretary when the situation was beginning to look ugly and told that harassed minister: "I will not have my people rmmhandled." And that was that. Then -carne the strong-willed Edward VII who gave up ihe world's greatest throne so that he could marry Mrs. Simpson. He was beginning to exercise much influence in public affairs when he ctiit hs job, and a lot of British statesmen breathed easier after the abdication, since many feared that Edward might overreach his position under a constitutional monarchy. Nothing like that is likely to happen with the present king, but I'll bet a bright new penny that so long as England has a king, just so Jong will ihe government pay him deference and grant his wishes where they can.

Main Heirens Said Ready to Confess All By ROBERT T. LOUGHRAN Chicago, July 17 —(UP)— Wil liam Heirens, 17. was reported to-j day to be ready to give a full and j complete confession to three of; the nation's most shocking crimes! —including the premeditated kid-j nap-slaying of six-year-old Suzanne ; Degnan. i It was understood that an agreement had been reached between the state's attorney's office and defense counsel whereby Heirens would confess the three murders in return for a recommendation by the state for a life .sentence, instead of the electric chair. The understanding, details of which were mapped out at an extra-ordinary conference last Sunday between defense attorneys and State's A t t o r n e y WilliaYn Tuohy, reportedly had been held no by Tuohy's insistence Unit the 17-year-old college youth be imprisoned lor the rest of his "natural" life. . Under a sentence of life imprisonment, a prisoner is eligible lor parole in ;!0 years, according to Illinois law. As the agreement was finally worked out. it was understood that defense attorneys had agreed to sentence of life imprisonment for the slayings and an additional sentence 01 y.-i years for the burglaries with which Heirens is charged—t'hus. assuring that lie will die in prison. The confession s, originally scheduled to be taken today and tomorrow, were not expected now for two or three more days because of "publicity" connected with the case. Heirens' parents. Mr. and Mrs. George Heirens, were said to have advised the attorneys to do "whatever is best." Earlier, State's Attorney Tuohy had said he "definitely" would place evidence before a grand jury in an effort to obtain indictments charging Heirens with the Degnan murder and the "lipstick" slaying of ex - W a v e Frances Brown. However. Tuohy said he needed "more information" on the knife slaying last summer of Mrs. Josephine Ross before it would be in shape x'or the jury. Ileirens, who has been charged formally with 24 burglaries and five assaults during a fantastic dual career as a fun-loving, religious college student and a primitive, maddened criminal, was disclosed by the United Press Monday to have admitted the three murders. The admissions were made orally, and it was learned i'rom reliable sources that defense attorneys were continuing efforts to trade a full, written confession for a life sentence instead of the electric chair. Tuohy was careful not to commit himself whether the state would seek to try Heirens in the absence of a written confession. Asked when he would seek indictments in the Brown and Degnan killings, Tuohy replied, "I don't know." He said he could not answer the question "at this time." Tuohy said he hoped to obtain more evidence in the Ross case, then added: "In i'act, I need more inform- tion on all of them." Heirens, who in his oral statement admitted kidnaping little Suzanne to obtain $20,000 ransom from her parents, was identified in court yesterday by George Sub- grunski, 25, a former soldier. Subgrunski, one of 13 persons placed strategically in the jury box when Heirens was arraigned on burglary and assault charges, said he saw Heirens near the Degnan home at about 1 a. m. last Jan. V, the day of the kidnaping. Subgrunski told State's Attorney Tuohy that he had parked his car near the Degnan home and had noticed a man carrying a paper bag under his arm. when the child's fismembored body was found, the torso was wrapped in a brown paper bag. When Heirens was brought into court, SubgrunsKi declared: "That's the one. I'm positive!" In his oral statement, the United Press learned, Heirens admitted that the Degnan slaying was premeditated — 'that he planned to kidnap and kill the little girl as the simplest way of obtaining the ransom money. His hope of collecting ransom was thwarted, however, when the discovery of dismembered parts of the child's body a few hours later turned Chicago police loose on their greatest manhunt. In the two other, and earlier killings, Heirens admissions showed that the -aggressive, primitive side of his nature had taken control, forcing him ID kill to avoid being discovered in other crimes. Both Miss Brown and Mrs. Ross were slain after they surprised the youth in the act of looting their apart merits. Psychiatrists who have examined the husky, maladjusted college ! youth have pronounced him sane i but found evidence of a schizoph- j rc-nic, or •'split" personality. Heirens looked upon himself as a bright student, a dutiful son, anc a frequent church-goer. To the criminal, brutish side of his personality, he gave the name of George Murmans. T'nus, the morning after the most brutal killing in Chicago's history, Heirens dropped the character of George Nurmans and attended his University of Chicago classes with an Qusy conscience. The burglary and assault against Heirens were continued in criminal court yesterday until Aug. 14 after his attorneys pleaded they had obtained indictments only the day before. State's attorneys offered no objection to the continuance. Firing Squad Ends Life of Ex-Slav Leader Belgrade, July 17 —(/P)— . Draja Mihailovic, onre acclaimed by the Allied world as the organizer of the Yugoslav resistance movement, died before a firing squad at dawn today —• less than 4-3 hours after his conviction on chaiges of treason and collaboration with the Germans. Eight other men who were convicted with the former Chetnik leader were executed at the same time. The executions were carried out in a private military ceremony. , Tiie others executed were: Kadoslav-Rade Radic. 5G, former Chetnik unit commander. Milos Glisch, 36. Chetnik leader. Oskar Paylovic, 34, former Sag- reb chief of police. Drag! Ypvanovic, 44. former chief of police of Belgrade. Yanasje-Tasa Dinic, 55, former minister of the interior in the puppet government of the lat" Premier Milan Neclic. who committed suicide last January by leaping from his jail cell. Velibor Yonic, 54, Nellie's minister of education. Djuro Dokic, 72, former minister of commerce. Kosia Musicki, 49. former uide- de-camp of King Peter. Official Yugoslav comment this morning was that "since the presidium of the Yugoslav parliament rejected the appeals of the accused men, all the death sentences have been carried out." The capital apparently lost all interest once the death sentences were passed. Authorities were diffident about issuing any statement regarding the executions, and the attitude was that news of the executions was unimportant. Mihailovic and 23 co-defendants were convicted last Monday by a Yugoslav military court. He and 10 others were sentenced to death and the remaining 13 to prison terms ranging from '20 years to 18 months. Two of those sentenced to death and eight of those sentenced to jrison were convicted in Absentia. The presidium of the Yugoslav xirliamt-nl yesterday rejected appeals for mercv. Market Report ST.

Atlanta Wins to Add to League Lead By The Associated Press The Chattanooga Lookouts wore the only i'irst division members of tlie Southern Associalion to fall by trie wayside last night. The pace-setters, the Atlanla Crackers, staged a" three-run rally in the seventh inning to defeat New Orleans, 5 to 3, in a 23-hit slug- test, while fourth-place Niishville defeated Litlle Rock, 3 lo 0, behind Russell Meyer's UHir-hitter. II was Memphis in Ihe second slot that gave the Lookquts \heir 7 to 2 drubbing." Lesler Willis allowed the third placers only eight scattered safeties as he lee! the Chicks in their slcp-for-step race with Atlanta. In the circuit's other game, the Mobile Bears had an easy time walking away from the Birmingham Barons with a 7 lo 1 decision. The Cracker-Pel game was en livened in the sixth when Pete Lay den, former Texas football star, charged into Sal Ferrara, the Atlanta catcher, in an attempt to score on a delayed peg from the outfield. Ferrara tagged the former footballer, but the oncmmler put him out of the game. When both men got to their feet, words were exchanged, but blow were not. The Chicks' victory over Chat- lanooga gave Ihem a sweep of the fourgame series and put them three full games ahead of the Lookouts. Meyer was in superb control as ho lurnnd back the Travelers at Little Rock. He allowed only two hits in the second and one each in the sixtli and eighth, and issued no bases on balls . At Mobile, Clyde King fanned six in -beating the Barons. Tonight's schedule: Atlanta at Mobile. Birmingham at New Orleans. Chattanooga at Little Rock . Nashville at Memphis.

O'BRIEN Written for NEA Service Water i'tch is caused in bathers and plant collectors by the ccr- cariae (larvae) of certain species of schistosomcs (blood flukes). The ccrcariae live in the snails which thrive ,<n the vegetation along the infected beaches. Bathers who swim in infected waters develop the skin reaction from the ccrcariae clinging to their skins alter the water evaporates. The larvae attempt to penetrate the y.;in, but as man is not a natural host the larvae die, and this causes the reaction. When pieces of infected skin arc examined under the microscope several hours after the larvae have penetrated the outermost layers of the skin, the reaction, already taking place, may be observed. Ccrcariae persist in the skin •about 30 hours after they enter, at the end of wiiich time they arc destroyed by the natural clelcnses of the body. In the average case, the itching rash reaches its intensity in two or three days and then disappears. SCRATCHING IS HARMFUL Scratching may cause secondary infection, with a persistence of the irritation. Skins of dilfercnt persons vary in their reactions to the laivae and the rash may be mild or very severe. Ccrcuriul dematilis can be prevented by toweling the skin briskly immediately alter leaving infected waters. in expenmcntal cercarial der- natitis, the larvae entered the kin about five minutes after they ttachcd themselves. A prickling, mining sensation is the first sign f their presence, and a brisk rub vith the towel may be helpful in his stage. But usually it is then oo late.
