July 3ii — (.'PI —Atlanta's 40 victory over the Southern As sociation All Stars last night was pretty much what observers had predicted, but nardly any of them expected to see a three-hit shutout.. Four of the league leader's pitchers humbled the collection of stars before a crowd of lO.'lal, largest ever to witness the annual classic, with the Crackers scoring their third triumph in as many tries. It was also the fifth time in eight games that the .host team has won the event. The Crackers teed off on Luis Aloma of Chattanooga, the All Star starter, for four hits and three runs in the first frame «nd were still threatening when a iast double play ended the inning. Lloyd Gcarhart and Charlie Clock singled to start things and the former scored on Bill Good man's single. Ted Cieslak moved Clock and Goodman into scoring position on an infield out and Babe Ellis was purposely walked to fill the bases. Frank Heller bounced it ate.

The statement, signed by Committee Chairman Charles D. Frierson a n d Secretary H. H. McAdams.

"This group (the boolloggers and gambler) and some innoccn'i citizen have boasted that holders of the voided receipts would vote anyway, disregarding ihe committee s ruling, and would see that the votes are counted," the statement asserted. The committee added that il would not permit Criaghead county lo become a "gambling and ma- cmo county." The statement referred to a recent federal court purge of Garland county poll tax rolls and said the committee preferred not to call in the courts in the Craighead county case.

Cordially, THE HEAIJEK'S DIGEST July 23, lil'Hi ricasantville, N. Y.. * * -K -'A icvcrsal of the general trend toward declining larm occupancy is noted in the ease of CUirK county, according to Arkansas Industrial News, published by Ihc Slate Economic Council-Chamber of Commerce. Says Ihe AIN: "Total number of larms in Clark county has remained nearly constant al slightly more than 2,500 since 1SMO but there has been a decline of .some 22,000 acres lo a total tilled aeicage of 52,000 during the period." 'j'he actual fall-off in farm production, therefore, is as sharp in Clark county as elsewhere — although just as many people may still be living on the land. It might be explained by Clark's relatively heavy population figure— that is. more people residing on the land yd earning their living in town. That .seems to be Ihe only explanation possible. 1 , with farm population constant but farm operations greatly reduced. By JAMES THRASHER ,f,Short Political History Originally, an ambitious candidate was a man in a while loga who went about looking for votes. We are indebted for that apparently extraneous definition lo Ihe Hook of Knowledge, a familiar work which lias nourished the minds of generations of inquisilive American youngsters, and which can still reward the adult with considerable information. And we mention it here because all of us probably get to thinking, at one time or another, lhat politicians Sre as variable as politics. Candidates comes from the Latin cnndidus, which means gleaming, white or spotless. (.It is also the root of our woid candid, which many people seldom associate svith candidates.) Ambitious is from the Latin verb .arnbire, which means to go about —especially lo go aboul in search of votes. Tho Roman office-seeker used to wear a gloaming, while, spotless toga when he went electioneering. Bui apparently Ihis loga often went to the laundry in a sorry stale at «7ne end of a hard day's campaigning. For Roman vptei-s |iad 4 forthright way of expressing disapproval of a candidate's record, promises, political affiliations and general qualifications. The candidate had lo meet Ihe people face to face in the Forum. Nol for him was the safety of Ihe broadcasting studio. He had to learn to take it. and what he took was not infrequently a barrage of eggs and vegetables past their prime, or a handful of mud from ^ie gutter. Yel this threat of popular displeasure did nol always impel Roman politicians lo careers as pure and spotless as their early-morning togas. By the lime the Republic was Hearing the end of its clays, says Ihe Book of Knowledge, fraud. vole-stealing and the rigging of elections had become a political fine art. Without cynical intention. it might be suggested that one of Ihe major changes in political'tcch- niquc through Hie centuries is lhat yjhe ambitious candidate has learned Ihe defensive value of trying to beat the opposition to Ihc punch by slinging the first handlul of, mud himself. 'J'he change is relatively minor, and the ethical advancement is questionable. Political issues are constantly, inevitably changing, since they re- flet:! the day-to-day events which make up history. I3ul the relation between politician and voter is relalively static-, judging from the etymological history of Ihe ambi- Wotis candidate. +' Maybe that's a good thing to remember in listenjng lo Ihc speeches of amiihrr political campaign. Voters .again will be assured that never have they been called on to mahi' such important choices between logurs and statesmen, scoun- r.hcl:» and heroes. But boast and bluster, eggs and insults, soiled togas and soiled reputations arc .still among the mossiest old heritages of democracy.

The new law. signed •after the markets closed yesterday, provides for restoration of price controls on livestock, meal, dairy and poultry products only if a three-man coii- trul board decides that such ac- litm is necessary to prevent inflation. The revived OPA lost no lime in restoring rent controls which wore in effect when the agency died June 30. Deputy Administrator Ivan D. Carson Warned landlords that they would bo violating the law if they continued to collect above-ceiling rents. He said leases signed during the interim period were void unless they complied with OPA rules. Rent control acts passed by some cities and slates during the interim were superseded by the jicw OPA act, Carson said. He said rent increases granted through stale and local action no longer would apply. The now OPA act got only a lukewarm reception irom some administration officials. P'-psident Truman signed it "reluctantly" and warned that if I he measure didn't work he would call Congress back into special session to "strengthen price control laws." The Department of Agriculture By ALEX H. SINGLETON Washington, July 2G -- i/P)— A formal medical explanation of Rep. May's (D-Kyi sudden illness was sought by the Senate War Investigating Committee today. He failed lo appear to testify on his wartime activities in behalf of a midwest munitions combine under investigation. Chairman Mead (D-Kyi said liiat Dr. Henry Lowdcn, pliy.sician for the ailing .and absent Kentucky legislator, would bo asked to produce a medical certificate attesting the nature of the illness and furnish additional details orally in a private session. Attorney Warren Magco, counsel or the 71-year-old chairman of Ihc House Military Committee, informed the committee that Dr. Lowdcn is willing to appear. Ho said the doctor had told him thai May's condition would bar his testifying lor at least a week. Magco said May's daughter told him last night her father had had a heart attack. Left tentatively unsettled. Mead said in reply lu questions from newsmen, arc these- decisions: 1. Whether to send a physician of the committee's choosing ID May's bedside to check up on his condition. 2. Whether lo submit a series of questions lor May to answer at home in the vent his illness is protracted. At the request of Senator Ferguson (R-Mich) the committee placed in its record files from the Labor Department pertaining to Murray Garsson, one of the promote! s of the munitions combine to which May's name had been linked by previous testimony. Garsson was formerly an investigator for Ihe department, and committee records showed that he was removed by Secruiary Perkins. The files were not immediately made available to the press, but Mead said they showed that Garsson had once been "on very friendly terms wilh Al Capone a'nd visited him ahiiie in the jail out there (Chicago).' The records also showed. Mead said, that in certain "Los Angeles eases' concerning Garsson there were a "great many actors and heiresses and stars' involved. The existence of the file showed. Mead contended, a "link of interest' on the part of "ecruiin guv- el nmenl repi c.si'iilative.s, in de- U'rm'ping lln_- "ehar-ieler. rrpMln- lion Mild mural:. i4 cuntraelur.-; v>i'h uiioin Ihc jL.ovcr;mic!it did L>u:u- nets.

"I saw the ultimate effect of unchecked erosion on my trip through South America last year," Mr. Gates continued. "Agricultural Indian di.sti icts which were bountiful a thousand years ago today are upland deserts. "Here in Arkansas we have sustained damage, not irreparable, but serious nevertheless. Arkansas has lost through erosion an area equal to the cultivated area of 14 counties—and a third of the state is damaged to a certain degree." Turning to remedial measures, Mr. Gates said the Experiment Faim system has shown that the poorest, eroded land can be made to produce -100 pounds of beef per acre per year. Livestock, only 21 per cent of Arkansas' farm income in 1924, today is 41 per cent, the speaker said. And Hempstead county (quoting figures furnished by County Agent Oliver L. Adams) has 21,000 beef cattle and 9,1)00 dairy cattle, Mr. Gates concluded. Mr. Gates was introduced by Roy Anderson, program chairman. Other guests were: Rotarians Bill Wright, of Benton; and O. G.

Moscow Calls -Bomb lest 'A War Scare' London, July 26 — (fP)— The Moscow radio said today that the Bikini atom bomb test, coupled with discussions of inler-Amcriean collaboration, constituted a "war scare" which imperiled the "dream or peace." "The Monroe Doctrine has become a symbol of economic, military and political supremacy of the United Slates," Dr. I. Lemin said in an English language com- mcntury. "Such ideas have nothing in common with Iho letter and spirit of the United Nations." He said that the doctrine was "a direct threat to the sovereignty of Latin American countries. "It is worth noting that this bill for inter-American military cooperation provides .for extension of this collaboration to Canada \.oo," the commentator said. "Hence joint American-Canadian expeditions lo the Arctic ocean and ihc desire to make Canada's northern boundary part of the United States defense system." o Wheeler to Try ain as an Independent By JACK BELL Washington, July 2(1 —I/I') —Senator Wheeler (D-Monl) said today he is being urged to run as an independent in the November Montana senatorial election—a course that might put President Truman on a political spot. While Wheeler told a reporter he has made no decision, he said influcncial Republicans as well as Democrats have asked him too make a three-man race of ihc contest that now lies between Democrat Leif Erickson and Republican Vales N. Ecton. Any decision bv the Monlanan to re-enter the fight for the Senate seat ho has held 24 years would bring about a situation in wiiicn Mr. Truman probably would be called upon either to extend again or withdraw the helping hand he ;gave Wheeler in the July 1C primary. At that time the president called for an end to the "smear campaign" he said opponents were PRICE 5c COPY They Go 'Rcund Together Four Negroes Shot by Mob in Georgia Washington, July 26 — Wl— At- orney General Tom Clark's office announced today that he has ordered a "complete investigation" nto the slayings of four Negroes icar Monroe, Ga., yesterday.

ARROWSMITI-T Washington, July 26 — (/Pi— Price and rent controls are back in ef- IccL.And OPA is out today to make up lost time. Stripped of many of its powers under the revival bill which President Truman "reluctantly" .signed into law late yesterday, the agency nevertheless made ready to issue 142 pricing orders as it rolled back into business. But none of these orders, due today, could touch any of these major items; meat, dairy products, eggs, poultry, grains, -:obac- co and petroleum. The new law exempts these commodities from price ceilings at least until after August 20. Meanwhile, as agency came back me jjcpariment or Agriculture ; ,, . »-....>.>>.j, said that unless price controls arc ' folr1 P wm £ S.uests: restored on food, meat prices may climb to 35 per cent above the old OPA ceilings by winter. Nor were opponents of the OPA enthusiastic about the measure. The American Meat Institute, spokesman .for the major packers, said the new bill "threatens to renew chaos in the meat industry just as consumers are beginning to enjoy more meat." "Among other things, the law provides that the price control board shall determine by Aug. 21 whether regulation of certain commodities, including meal, is enforceable and in the public interest," ihc institute said. "However, the past, has shown with clarify painful to everybody except black market chi'sclcr's lhat the regulation of meat in peacetime is entirely unworkable and impracticable and not in the interest of the consumer of meat or the fulurc production of Juod animals." The first reaction from labor came in a statement by Waller P. Reuther, president of the big CIO United Auto Workers Union, fledging a continuation of the union's buyers slrike. Charging lhat the new bill "only pretends lo restore price control." Reiilher claimed 1 ha.- lhat OPA already prepared orders b'.-osliii{j prices nn 12(i eommoclil ies. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported yesterday lhat its wholesale price index lose 2.0 per cent lasl week, making a total increase of 10 per com of the first ,|UTC weeks sincu the lapse of pri'.-o controls. Rising auriciilliiral prices, l-.-irliciilarly food prices, were the principal cause of Ihe increase, ihc bureau said. Oil Prices Jump When Cut Loose From OPA Control Tulsa. Okla..

This letter to Wheeler's campaign manager was interpreted generally among politicians as an indorsement of the incumbent's candidacy. A new bid by Wheeler could bo expected to bring demands from Erickson's friend' s, probably backed by many in the Democratic high command here, that the president support the regular nominee.
