Tribune News Service JACKSON Miss Ross R Barnett is through as a politi cian That is the seasoned view of veteran impartial observers at the capital here Gov Barnetts term expires in Janu ary 1964 He is 64 Under the State constitution he cannot lucceed himself However those close to the racist governor insist that he has had his eyes on going to Washington as the states jun ior hat he has had such visions even since before the current mess started by his refusal to allow a Negro to reg ister at lilywhite University of Mississippi The current junior senator is John C Stennis He succeeded Theodore Gilmore The Man Bilbo who died of can cer after the late senator from Ohio Robert A Taft ledthefight to from takinghis despite his of his vicious antiNegro senti ments r i t i On that score

states two current senators Stennis and James is to expire first at the end of 1964 That is the seat Gov Barnett would like to fill But there has been a low but steadily mounting tide of re sentment here at Gov Barnetts tirades which many felt caused the riot at the Ole Miss campus Two persons were killed and scores were injured For instance a group of 50 professors at Ole Miss rallied to the side of the federal marshals The campus chapter of The American Association of Univer sity Professors passed a resolu in which they noted that they believe in the use of courts and ballot boxes to

mouth the gover nors line that Whether we like it or not our behavior must be fashioned around the courts of law And like it or not the Supreme fc Courts interpretation of the Constitution of the United States the law of the land as stated before this publication is not for integration of our schools but more so it is not for defiance of our courts It is also pointed out that even if the unexpected election of Gov Barnett to the is a good chance that the other members of that exclusive club would refuse to let him be seated as happened with Bilbo The word from Washington as heard down here by respon sible sources is that even Southern senators feel that Gov Barnelt has gone too far U The Weather North Iowa Generally fair Mostly fair locally double barreled shotgun frorri tion she

still for making fresh water and a onematch fire that didnt go out were credited Wednesday with saving the lives of 12 Polynesian sailors shipwrecked for more than three monthson a barren reef in the Southwest Pacific Ten survivors were taken from the reef by aNew Zealand flying boat and brought to Suva two of their companions drifted on a crudely made raft more than 300 miles for help It was if everything on our bodies came alive again when the plane came said Veetutu Pahulu one of the sur vivors We were very very happy Five others of the 17man crew died from the ordeal in cluding one lost from the raft sent to find help and one who succumbed on the reef shortly before the rescue plane arrived The survival story of the hardy seamen from the tiny Polynesian archipelago of Tonga was one of ingenuity and impro visation They set out from Tonga July 4 in the 50foot cutter Tuaikae pau headed for Auckland New Zealand Three d a y s out of the ship ran aground on Minerva reef about 325 miles south of the Fiji Islands broke up and sank hadr enabled them to distill about two quarts pi fresh wa7 ter everyday or about four ounces for each man The Tongans found shelter in the hulk of a Japanese fish ing trawler wrecked on the reef last year and broke it up to keep their fire going Although the crew managed to crawl onto the reef with some food salvaged from the ship all their water supplies were lost There was no fresh water on the reef But they had a large alum inum pot a kettle a rubber tube and one match The men set up a crude still to boil sea water in the pot and channel it through the tube to be con densed in the kettle Everything depended on the match It lit The seamen built a fire and took turns guarding it 24 hours a day It was still burning when they were rescued It The food ran out after TO days and they lived on crabs i and fish caught in pools on the There was no sign of rescue and three men died early this month after about two months on the reef The survivors des perately built a raft using pieces from the ler They had a hammer but no s aw and used nails to c u t through the timbers Three men set out on the raft Two of them werewashed ashore al
