Saturday-Night MILTON EASON, Owner Jews Fear New Campaign by the British By ELIAV SIMON Jerusalem, July 23 — (UP> — The anti-British front of Jewish underground forces in Palestine appeared to be racking today under hints of a new campaign against extremists, with Hagana turning against the so-called Stern gang and Irgun Zvai Lcumi. Authoritative sources said they expected the bombings of the King David hotel to touch off a :iew British roundup of Jews similar to that against "terrorism and anarchy" which began une :!9. Collective fines against the Jews, wholesale arrests, and other sanctions were reported unofficially to be in the offing unless the Jewish community cooperates in ihe search for the saboteurs who blew up the King David hotel, killing about 125 persons. An official announcement said 63 were known dead, 65 were misa- ing and hope for the lives of any of them was about gone. Forty- seven others were injured seriously. Danger developed that other parts of the hotel might collapse from the effects of the blast wnich wrecked one wing. A few hours after reports circulated that, the British were preparing for aggressive action, authoritative sources said the Ha- gana organization was about to pledge its full cooperation in any campaign against alleged terroris- tic elements in the Stern and Ir- gunist groups. Responsible observers agreed that if the reports were borne out. internecine strife among the -Jews themselves was virtually certain. Informed quarters expected the British authorities to serve a virtual ultimatum on the Jews that unless they help round up ihe saboteurs within their ranks by a certain time, broad penalties affecting the Jewish economic structure may be imposed. The Jewish quarter of Jerusalem was increasingly jittery. In addition to the circulation of predictions about what the British might do, soldiers in full war kit maintained patrols as the search f«r the King David'saboteurs went on. ihe British cruiser Liverpool dropped anchor oft Jaffa. Uncon- firmed reports circulated that the warship put in there because ex tremists were mining the harbor. o Big Increase in Polio Cases Jl marf-Shelby worlTshoes\ -*>-. raireTit" orfany'job they're asked to^do, any place they're asked to go?

July 25 — (/Pi —An 'approximately 50 percent rise in i the weekly case rate of infantile 'paralysis for the whole nation was reported today. At the same lime, a U. S. Public Health Service official said he still felt the country would be spared a major epidemic year. The official, who iis:;ed anonymity, told a reporter that with [only two states still lo be heard ! from, the total of new cases f nr the week ended July 20 is 046. This compares with 403 new cases for the preceding week in the same states. The latest available totals bring to 3.242 the number of cases so far this year. There were 2,048 for the same period a year ago and 3,320 in 1944 — a year which eventually proved to be the second worst "polio" year in U. S. records. Although current totals for this year exceed those of 1944 to the same approximate date, the health service official said: "I still look for this year's totals to drop below those of the epidemic year of 1944 not only in weekly figures but in cumulative totals." He offered two reasons for his view: 1. The cases this year are distributed more widely among a larger number of states than in 1944 and may well "level off" before reaching anything like the "explosive" outbreaks that occurred in a few states in 1944. 2. The disease began to increase this year several weeks earlier than in 1944. "It is, of course, hazardous to make predictions," he said, "but the peak of the outbreak may be reached earlier this year than in 1944 when the peak was not reached until early September." Major increases for the week ended July 20 were noted in the following states: Minnesota where 97 new cases ,vere reported, compared with 45 in the previous week and 20 the week before that? Kansas 35 new cases, compared with '18 the week before; Missouri 34 (compared with 13); Alabama 33 (14); Colorado 43 (31); Texas 61 54: California 38 (25); Louisiana 27 (18.) Up to July 13 Ihis year, there were 2,596 cases throughout the country reported to the health service, compared with 1,752 for the similar period of 1944. This year's total up to mid-July is also Ihe highesl for the period since 1934 when 2.694 were recorded Cor the comparable period. Eight stales have reporled to the service more than 100 cases 30 for this year, with Texas worst affected and listing a total of 391 up to July 13. The public health service classes the disease as epidemic in certain areas of Texas, Florida, Alabama and Colorado. In Jackson, Miss., Dr. H.L. Gray of the state board of health said the disease is "nearing the epidemic stage" in Mississippi. In addition to Texas, states reporting more than 100 cases to the health service up to July 13 are: Florida 338 (the slate had 30 cases up to the same date a year ago); California 261 138 a year ago; Alabama 136 (73); Colorado 135 9) ;Ncw York 128 (257; Louisiana 104 16); and Illinois 102 (32). In 1944, said the heallh srcvice, the disease was concenlrated :nain- y in North Carolina, Kentucky, New York, Illinois and Ohio. *3 - 48 $ 6 - 95 V/e Give and Redeem Eagle Stamps Geo. V/.

The family can't find a house to rent, and its members are called "crazy" if they start to build. And no wonder. Building may be held up for months because of some necessary item, like flooring, which just can't be gotten.

THIS MESSAGE SPONSORED BY 'The Friendly Store" 1946 2 PUZZLING QUESTIONS l._WHY IS "BUSY-MAN" BEN ENTITLED TO A SECOND TERM??? 2.—WHY DOES EX-JUDGE MALONE WANT TO CHAW ON THE BONE??? GREENE HAS THE ANSWERS We are hearing a lot of talk nowadays about who "IS" the man for Governor. Ben Laney's friends have been telling the folks for more than two years that "Ben Laney is the man." Now Ex-Juclye Malone jumps into the political arena and ndvlses that "Lnney is not the man." However most of us have observed that Mnlone didn't have the temerity to even hint that "Malone is the man." Why? Because both Malone and Laney know that "Greene is the Man." Virgil Greene's age, experience and record prove this to any thinking individual beyond any shadow of doubt. n BUT IF YOU NEED FURTHER PROOF LET'S LOOK AT THE RECORDS!!! L-.HIIL- ir-jm.i li and consolidating, tne State's , >»,i,i ,,,, ,,1,., iu»a .inn ucuuunilzinK affairs sirern just about the same Governor Lnney filled positions with politically inexperienced business people, instead of folks wise in the political know. It's been a costly mistake. He appointed a 28-man honorary board to help solve the highway problem. But they were all bankers and farmers and business men, not the contractors, construction men and engineers who knew what it was all about. Laney must have forgotten his struggling days on the farm and the way he had to wc.k his way through college, for he hasn't raised pensions in Arkansas yet and everybody knows it costs a lot more to live nowadays. All of this spells "tommy-rot" to me. ix-Judge Malone drew a salary :is Jud^o of Lonoke County for .'. least eight year;;, and was defeated two years ago largely due the fact that trie people were tired of his'promises, remember•M that lie had clone little if anything lo build roads. .slither Mr. Laney nor Mr. Malone Mave .said how much they think o'.ir old people should have per month. While it is true that pen- sic,ncrs get more in only (i other states based on per capita income. I say they should have a minimum of Sl.fiO per day- and if you ask iv/:cre the money is io come from, my answer is: "I can pinch off 1'ic- waste of the required amount." i-lovcrthcless. we now find him running on a platform pledging a modern road system. In fact he tells you that the State has !>;t million dollars lying idle in the Treasury, but if he is elected he will take this money, match Federal ;ud and build Arkansas a model road system. He failed lo slate Ihat the r>H million is earmarked by the Legislature for other purposes, and the Federal money that can be matched in ,'i years is only 22 million. BUT HOW CAN MALONE SPEND ALL THE STATE'S MONEY FOR ROADS? After suggesting that ho will use all the State's money for roads Malone suddenly remembered that he might got some votes by promising to do something for the sciviols. or by telling I ho old-age dependents, the blind and de- pendent children he'd look after Ihem. So. in the next breath he ad- v.icates allocating ivore money to the welfare fund, increasing salaries of the teachers, ro- liabiliti'ting the GI Joes, el-.-., ad infinilum. LET'S FACE THE COLD HARD FACTS Now mont ,v suppose we exploded the fallacy of Malonc'.s argu- nts. While it is true the Stale Treasury has 53 million dollars lo be used in operating the Slate'Government, it is equally true thai evcry'clollar is appropriated for specific funds and cannot be used for any other purpose than Ihal sel oul by act of ihc l.egislalure. In fact there are a total of 136 specific funds, serving 157 state debts, agencies and activities. Some of the funds are as follows: Public Schools $14,557,372 County Aid Fund for County Activities Such as County Roadsj, etc. $2,908,690 Public Welfare Fund to Be Matched by Federal Funds. $5,000,000 Charitable Institutions $3,000,000 Hi g h w a y Bond Retirement Earmarked by the Refund- in n Act $7,781,000 Highway Maintenance... $3,353,000 Highway Construction Fund $2,500,000 Highway Surplus >-~»"d $2,500,000 \ou will observe thai these eight funds alone call for approximately lorty million dollar:; of the Stale revenue. Now, how can F,x- Judgo Malone spend 53 million on roods'.' • How can he double the old-aqc assistance funds? • How can ho increase school appropriations? 9 Does he intend to accomplish his "modern" road system by repudiating the bonds? • Does he intend to do away with the welfare department in order to build roads? « Does he intend to close the schools and "shoot it all" on the roads? • Or does he intend to place new taxes on an already over-burdened pubjic in order to accomplish the trick of building a modern road system? I maintain thct any man who makes that kind of a promise to the people is either too ignorant and uninformed to fill the position of Governor, or is attempting to deceive the public, and is therefore unworthy of the confidence or support of the electorate. I say that our tax burden is all too heavy and I will oppose, with all the power that is in me, the creating of any new tax or the increase of an existing one. Bearing in mind that our first duty is to care for our helpless, and to reasonably reward our faithful unpaid servants, our school teachers should draw a minimum salary of $1,200 per year. I can raise the money to meet that, without increasing any tax or creating a new one. Now, Let's See About "BUSINESS-MAN" LANEY What has this so-called and self-styled business man's candidate done for the people? Even Ex-Judge Malone admits "Business Man Ben" has done nothing taut talk about the business-like , administration he has given the State. This is one time I'm inclined to agree with Malone. When you sum it all up, it's just talk and no " 'taters." That's why I'm running. I contend that Arkansas must advance. To do this the State needs an experienced man at the helm, a man who will be equal to any emergency. My pa: t experience, including 75 years as a citizen and tax-payer offers (.inclusive proof that I am capable and willing to serve you well. That's why I'm asking your support.

HARRIS Little Rock, Julv 25 —•(/!*)—• Statehouse office holders, including opposed candidates for re-election, would like to know the bookmaker who supplied the election ods i'or a weekly news bulletin sent out by the Arkansas Wholesale Grocers Association's office here. Buried down in the mass of information of interest only to grocery wholesalers was a paragraph giving odds on all of the state races in which capital incumbents arc participating. The odds ranged down from G-l lo 3-2, with all the incumbents favored.
