Although Mrs. Smith has begun to despair of finding her son, it is believed he continues to hide out in the woods near ther home and grubs for food at his own house a', night. Searchers who have only seen him five times during the 20 days, say he is "as fast as greased lightning' 'and that bloodhounds have been fagged out after picking up his scent and giving chase. .Hundreds of persons have been in the posse at various times. And as word of Ira's disappearance spreads, more come from miles around "to join in the human hunt. The speeding youth "ran those hounds so fast and through so dcrn many bushes and briar that they couldn't even bark when they t:ave out," one searcher reported. Mrs. Thelma McKnight, woman sheriff of Cross county, opened the search for Ira five days after he disappeared. Lieut. Carroll (Bulli Durham of the state police iorce has since taken over the party. "If they don't catch Ira before long," one farmer said, "we're gonna starve around here. Can't get nobody to work and politicians are as thick as flies." o Slayer Should Have Waited for Natural Death El Cerrito, Calif., July 13 — (fP) — Only a matter of months, an autopsy surgeon said, and Charles McDonald, 48, probably would have died a natural death had he not been bludgeoned fatally last week.

Sanity Test to De Given Farmer Who Killed Wife ' Mountain Home, July 18 — (fP> — Deputy Prosecutor Ernie Wright has announced he will seek a court order authorizing sanity tests at the State Hospital for Leon A. Merrow, 55-year-old farmer charged with first degree murder of his wife. Vadah, 52. Mrs. Merrow has been missing since June 9, .and the state allei.-cs that human remains, buttons, a dental plate and four teeth which wcie found in ashes of a log fire near the Merrow's farm home in the vicinity of Mountain Home were hers. Wright said he would seek Merrow's commitment to the state hospital on the theory that the defense would enter a plea of insanity when the farmer is brought to trial. Merrow has denied the slaying put has admitted burning " the logs. Applications for Building in State Are Approved Little Rock, July 18 — (IP)— The Civilian , Production Administration's constructon committee has approved 20 applications for building and repair work in Arkansas at a total esumated cost of $158,259 The projects included: Griffin - Leggett funeral home, Little Rock, alteration and repair, Here's Score on Regulations By JAMES MARLOW Washington, July 18 —(/Pj—Here's the score on the new draft set-up. Selective Service has made it tight and tough. 1. Draft boards will start calling men again Sept. 1. (Sept. 1 is the end of the two-1 ; month draft-holiday. No men were drafted in July or August.* Those drafted will be 19 through 29. (Since May 15 no youths Under 20 had been drafted. This wceK President Truman told draft boards to take men 19 through 29.) 3. Youths still in high school can get deferred. Not so college youths. If called, they won't be allowed to finish out a quarter or semester, unless their draft boards make some special exceptions in individual coses. 4. Fathers will not be drafted, n.or will men considered extreme hardship cases. But — a man will not bo deferred because of dependents. 5. Every man in the 19-29 age group who now has an occupational deferment will be re-examined. The rule here is very tough. Selective Service told the boards not to defer anyone unless he if "indispensable and irreplaceable to the national existence." . (This means that almost no one now will have an occupation thai can DC considered deferrable. I 6. But farm workers still will get the same special consideration — for deferment — that thev got through the war. A special section of the. draft law provides ioi them. (Which means: Determent fo' farm workers undoubtedly will be Ear greater than .fnr any other kind of work in this country.) 7. Draft boards will review tin- cases of men 19 through 29 wnr have been found physically unfii ior military service. (Which means: Snmo men lou excused from military service be cause of poor physical coMitior will find themselves drafted, j doctors think they've improved enough to fit requirements i. 8. There's no quota svstcm basec on age. For instance: Draft boards, will take whom they can in the group 19-29, and >iot try to pick goes into the water the same as the entire energy goes into the air Iron i an air burst. Hut not nearly {ill the atomic energy gets into the water at Bikini. Tne exact percentage is both a military secret and a matter of scientific controversy. II. ill' of the Nuclear Fission power in the underwater* blast may go into the wnter. That will be fiinuyh .for nil entirely un|.ircce- denied snouk. Furthermore, it. is possible that the underwater bomb may be more efficient than the air bomb. The second bomb can possibly explode with the lorce of "1,000 ions of T. N. T. This shock, passing through the water, does not stop when it hits the coral. It merely enters ihe coral and doubles its speed. Official estimates arc that the shock may tear a hole in the coral 50 feet deep directly below ihe underwater bomb. Coral, because it is full of holes, will rob this shock of some of its crushing force. Nevertheless, ihe shock is expected to hit the rock top of the submarine mountain on which the atoll stands. That mountain top is estimated to be very sturdy. It appears io be table-top in shape, 20 miles by U), and to be made of rock about Li,.101) .feet thick. If these estimates are right, the mountain top is a capstone in which the atomic bomb shock may i '.veil be expected to die without ; Uirther damage.

This did not mean that the army was getting so many volunteer's that it really wouldn't need nnv draftees. It meant only this: So many Negroes were enlisting that — unless this was stopped :.'or a while •— ths proportion of Negroes to white men in the would be greater than the wants.

Ryudang, July 13 — (/Pj— Winds which reached a maximum velocity of 102 miles an hour battered Hong Kong today as a typhoon swept the China coast, endangering snipping and damaging communications. The royal naval observatory reported at 5 p.m. 12 a.m. C.S.T.) that the brunt of the storm apparently had struck the coast west 01 Hong Kong but that the typhoon had curved back toward this crown colony. The observatory estimated the average wind here at 63 miles an hour, but said gusts at times exceeded 100 miles per hour. American and British naval vessels departed for the open sea before the storm hit.

"Your Ford Dealer for 28 Years" 220 W. 2nd Street Phone 277-278 BY As a candidate for your next Circuit Judge I would much prefer to confine the race solely to the qualification? of the two men in the race. But when a systematic effort is made by the opposition to gain a sympathetic vote I feel that I should answer the erroneous impressions which they are leaving. They are spreading the idea that if my opponent con be elected to the Sixth term for which he is running that he will get a pension. This is not the law. The 19-45 Legislature passed a law which provides that when any Circuit Judge who holds the office twenty years, attains tho cage of seventy and resigns, then in such event he will be entitled to a pension. The plain purpose of this law is to encourage judges to retire when they reach seventy years of age and make way for younger lawyers. My opponent could not possibly benefit from this law because he is far from seventy years of age. FOR Subject to 5-he Ac!ion of the Democratic Primary, August 13th. -Political Adv. Pnid fur by Lvle .Brawn State Awaits Confession Heirens Chicago, July 18 —(UP)— Two attorneys :for William Heirens. 17- year-old college, student, today .vent to the north side .homo ;;rom which six-year-old Suzanne Degnan was taken to her death last Jan. 7. Pi ogress in the state's case awaited the taking of a confession from Heirens in the Dcgana kidnap slaying and in two other killings. The attorneys, John and Malachy Coghlan, said they were going to look over the surroundings of the home and the sc^ne of the kidnaping. Although they declined coment on any other pur- nose of their visit, li was believed that they might talk with the slain crmd's pareuis. The actual confession is the next step in an understanding reached by defense and prosecution attorneys whereby Statp's 'Attorney William J. Tuohy has agreed to ask a life prison sentence, instead of the death penalty, in return for a written confession of the three slayings. Heirens already has admitted the murders orally and it was .reported that taking of the detailed confession had been postponed until tomorrow or Saturday because of "publicity" given the agreement. '''Despite the agreement, "' iin.il judgment rests with Chief Justice Harold G. Ward, who will hear 'the case in criminal court. If he desired, Judge Ward could ignore any defense -prosecution agreement and demand a Sull trial. However, such agreements customarily are honored. Ward refused comment yesterday when questioned about his viewpoint, adding that, "I don't think it is fair for me to prejudge the case." Asked about the reported agreement between defense attorneys and Ihe slate's attorney's office, Ward said: "So far as I know the Jaw has not been changed on that point, •and my understanding is that the I judge will have the unal word in passing sentence on this case.
