the eye and began to toll fantas-
tic but sincere story.
Tiie C5-year-old Tomei ex-
plained in broken English to Fed-
eral Judge, J. Frank McLaughlin
that there was no need for him to
register for the past two years be-
cause tlw United States had lost
World War II and Hawaii was part
of the Japanese empire.
Tomei’s case was just one, of
eight which have caused immigra-
tion authorities and other federal
officers to scratch their heads in
wonderment. Tomei was a mem-
ber of a strange group called His-
sho Kai. which, translated, means
"Certain Victory Club."

Hospital, Watson Says
Austin. Nov. 18 (UP) —State

some 2,500 persons who are not
mentally 111. That's the word of
J Malcolm Watson, Dalian field
representative of the Texas Depart-
ment of Public Welfare. Watson
has made that report to the Texas
Social Welfare Association at a
meeting in Houston. He says that
county Judges have no other place
to send senile or emotionally dis-

to a mental hospital. As a result,
understaffed hospitals must con-
centrate on the more serious men-
tal cases and neglect the others,

YOU ARE WELCOME
Is Asking for
Here is an analysis of one of the
big new a developments of the day
In United Pressi.
French Premier M(Mi les France
wants much more from President
Eisenhower than . tho President
w:c.:Uf from him.
All the administration wants is
to make sure that Mendes-France
will put through his parliament the
Western European Union Treaties
to re-aun West Germany.
But the French Premier wants a
great deal. First, he wants a pro-
mise of continued American finan-
cial help in Indo-China. That he
probably will get.
Nevt, he would like American
help In solving his difficult prob-
lems in North Africa. These prob-
lems are getting worse. The Na-
tionalists Equality Party called a
strike today against the French in
Morocco. The French now fee an nil
winter war against the so-called
“army ol God" Rebels in the moun-
tains of Eastern Algeria.
And the tentative settlement for
a Tunisian home-rule plan is blow-
ing up behind Mendes-Fraace. The
Tunisian outlaws and Habib Ilour-
giba.the exiled Tunisian Nationalist
leaders, are threatening France with
new war in the Protectorate.
Worse, General De Guulle and
other French Rightists arc threaten-
ing to rebel against Mendes-France
unless he takes a tough stand in
De Gualle is reported to have
sent Mendes-France some kind ol
an ultimatum on Tunisia by trans-
atlantic phone last night.
Moral support from the United
States on North Africa Is what
Mendes-France is after. Especially
he wan's the United States to put
pressure on Egypt to cull off her
incessant propaganda against the
French in North Africa.
But the Eisenhower administra-
tion has no desire to run counter
to general opinion in Alika, Asia
and Latin-America by backing
France on a colonial matter where
Communism Is at best a minor Issue.
Nationalism is the root of the North
Afii. an question Therefore Memdes-
France is likely to be turned down
on this at Washington.
Finally, Mendes-France wants to
feel out the Eisenhower Adminis-
tration on peaceful co-existence
with Russia—A now effort to settle
the cold war after the Oerman
rearmament treaties are ratified.
The United States os thoroughly
agreeable to that—but not at the
juice of agreeing to Russia’s de-
mand that both Germany And
France ultimately be completely
neutralized, and there still is worry
in Washington that Mendes-Franco
dreams of a neutral Europe poised
between Russia ,, and the United
Dallas, Texas—Murder charges
have been filed in Dallas n,gaUi«t
pretty Mrs Elsie Lee In the recent
shooting of her husband, a Univer-
sity Park dentist.
The charge suggests that Jealousy
wax the motive for the shoo ting.
It quotes the 24-year-old Mrs. Lee
us saying she went to Houston late
last month for a minor operation
When she returned home she lound

Her husband, Dr. Mareellus Doug-
las Lee, was shot with a 22-eaIiher
pistol early this month. She was
wounded slightly during a struggle
over the gun.
Khe told officers that the gun
was discharged accidentally during
a scuffle over the weapon. However,
lrsts on the hands of the doctor
show he did not fire the weapon.
Mr and Mrs. Taylor Holland and
son, T H. of Brownfield will arrive
Wednesday to spend the Thanks-
giving holidays with her parents,
Mi and Mrs. Johnnie Allen.

Painless Dental Drill
Chicago. Nov. 18 (UP). Dentists
have had their first look at. a “pain-

He said the drill, which is jxrwercd
