PAGE SIX THE GUARDIAN, SEPTEMBER i 7, 1943 Conway Merchants Greet Faulkner County Through The Guardi Electoral College Of Mexico Bars National Action Candidate Mexico City. (E)--Only two of the National Action candidates for seats in the Chamber of Deputies were admitted to the open session of the Electoral College which followed the closed session of the Mexican Revolutionary Party's caucus: Carlos Septien Oarcia, candi- date from the First District of Queretaro, and Filogonio Mora, candi- date from the First District of Ouerrero. Guards barred the way to 19 of the National Action candidates who sought to present their claims before the college. Sept,en Garcia, a young Catholic who has been fearless in his defense of liberty, defended the legitimacy of his election with firm- ness and despite heckling from the floor and galleries. "I do not triotic citizens have consented to come here to acknowledge a be- lated invitation from an Electoral College which so far, in my. pres- ence, has disposed of 14 National Action cases without having heard from any of the candidates of my Party who are ready to present copious and convincing documen- tation. I come here to fulfill an obligation to my electors, to my Party and to myself--the obliga- tion of continuing until the last act of this farce, and of this elec- toral process from which some- thing of decency and a little of decorum was expected in vain... Charges Fraudulent Count "In the brief time that I have been in this inclosure, I have ob- served that all the orators were permitted to read prepared state- ments in defense of their cases. I have the same right. And if I speak of fraud, it is because I necessarily, have to refer to it, since I am the victim of fraud. Furthermore, the fact that I am on this platform does no credit to the regimen. To the contrary, the fact that of the 21 honorable men who fought for National Action in these elections, only two have been permitted to speak from this platform is a reproach to it. "I shall limit myself to demon- strating with documents the il- legality of the count that result- ed in the naming of Eduardo Lu- que, and the legality of my cre- dentials." After reading these documents, the speaker continued: "I am the first voles'of. National Action to be heard in the Chamber and it is my duty to protest against the violent procedure and the fraud that has been pursued in the cases of my companions; also to say that National Action has achieved one of its goals in this campaign: the unmasking of this regimen of fraud." The body which passed on cre- dentials was composed of mem- bers of the Mexican Revolution- ary Party, the Confederation of Mexican Workers and its af- filiated National Peasant Confed- eration. Although the National Action Party has been denied seats in the new Chamber, it cannot be said that it actually or theoretically lost the elections which have been branded by all the leading dailies and periodicals of Mexico as fraudulent.

II COVINITON ROOFING COMPANY METAL SHOP  PAINTS  WALL PAPER , Best Material and Service That Satisfies Dealers and contractors Wholesale and Retail Front Street Phone 379 Conway, Arkansas For Good Food Eat At The COURT CAFE II II II By Birth Control Group Rochester, (IC)--As the result of an expose of an article appearing in a natmnal magazine, the Catholic Courier, official newspaper of the Diocese of Rochester, states that the latest strategy of the Planned Parenthood Federation calls for disseminating its propaganda among the thousands of women workers in the nation's war plants and the employment of bugaboos in making the propaganda effective. The Catholic paper took issue with an article entitled "Factory Manager Learns the Facts of Life," written by A.: G. Mezerik, which appeared in Harper's Magazine. The article stated that a private hospital was being operated in Rochester by a group of doctors, who perform abortions for wemen war workers "legally, therapeuti- cally and effectively." Calling upon the magazine for pr6of of this statement, the Cour- ier was informed that the facts were supplied to the author by the head of the Planned Parent- hood Federation, but details con- cerning the information could not be supplied at the time because of the absence of the 'Federation head. The Courier then called upon Dr. A. -M. Johnson, Rochester Health Officer, for comment re- garding the statement. Dr. John- son readily gave an answer. He stated "to the best of our knowl- edge and belief, based upon known conditions in Rochester and from intimate knowledge of births and deaths, the above statement (concerning the private hospital) is entirely without basis in fact." The magazine article asserted that nearly every large plant was staggered by the problem of preg- nancy; that abortion and preg- nancy are constant topics among workers and management of- ficials; that "abortion rings" are doing land office business; that plant management generally has failed to provide an enlightened program for women who become pregnant; and that the Planned Parenthood Federation has pro- posed to feed its information to counselors and plant physicians. The Courier takes the view that since Mr. Mezerik admittedly ob- tained his information from the national group of birth control- lers. Some of the startling state- ments of the article may be view- ed in the light of propaganda. Mrs. Hampe|, St. Edwards, Heads use Committee Little Rock.--Mrs. Jos.
