By DeWITT MacKENZIE Associated Press War Analyst , Out of Northern Russia a new ally Winter, the giant of the steppes — is moving its mighty weight southward to the aid of the Red armies which are battling to close the great Dnieper bend trap on Hitler's retreating forces. - This boon is developing as the Muscovites arrive at the expansive lower reaches of the Dnieper opposite Kherson. Winter soon will freeze the Dnieper and the awful fields of seemingly bottomless mud which the autumn rains have created. It will expedite the movement of troops and engines of war. The fierce cold and snows, which smashed Napoleon with one stroke, already have had two goes at Hitler. This bids fair to be the third and last. The mouth of the Dnieper bend trap, which opens westward toward the Fatherland and temporary safey (or does security lie that way?) is between the strategic rail center of Krivoi Rog on the north and the estuary of the river at the Black Sea. That gate is about nine$ ty miles wide. This ninety miles stretch affords the only escape for the large German forces which remains inside the trap. Many troops already have been 1 moved through the opening, although thousands have been killed or captured by the pursuing Reds, and vast quantities of Nazi war materiel have been abandoned. Estimates of the number of Hitlerites still within the trap are guesses, but undoubtedly the total runs to scores of thousands. Disaster is setting the pace for :the Germans, in what is one of the •greatest crises of the war. Already "they have suffered catastrophe. To- iday's news from Moscow claims 2,700,000 Nazi casualties during the 'Hour months' offensive, and of these 900,000 are killed. A complete brakdown and debacle of the German forces could grow out of the present position. However, the final returns aren't yet in. Despite the terrible losses they already have suffered, and still are bound to have, they may be able to fall back to fresh positions for another stand. 'Here enters winter.

Trojans Given Chance to Upset Strong Zebras Little Rock, Nov. 5 (/P) — It you're in the Hot Springs High school stadium tonight you'll sec the Arkansas High School conference football championship either pretty definitely decided or considerably jumbled. These arc the possibilities for the Hot Springs Trojan-Pine Bluff Zebra tilt at the Spa, which with the Little Rock Tiger-El Dorado Wildcat engagement down at the Qil City offer conference fans a double-barrel weekend thriller. A Zebra win tonight would all but put them in as 1943 champs. A loss would leave them on top on a percentage basis but it would cut them down to the point where any of four teams — El Dorado, Hot Springs, Little Rock or Fort Smith — could overtake them. The El Dorado-Little Rock contest fits right in the championship picture. At the present writing El Dorado is a step behind the Ze- ras with four wins and one loss followed by Hot Springs with four wins, one loss and one tie and Little Rock with three wins, one loss and one tie. Fort Smith and Jonos- boro have two wins and one loss. Fort Smith won't figure in conference play this week because it goes to Tulsa, Okla., to mdet Will Rogers High. Other conference games this week pit Blytheville's Chickasaws against North Little Rock and send Russellvillc's twice-beaten Cyclones to Benton. Non-conference tilts send Camden to Magnolia; put Forrest City up against Stuttgart, arid Joncsboro against Searcy. Fordyce and Hope are idle. SPORTS ROUNDUP Associated Press Sports Columnist New York, Nov. 5 (/P)— Now that the hockey season is underway, it might be a good idea for twitchy Dick Porter, the old baseball player Who now is business manager of the Curtis Bay, Md., Coast Guard "Cutters" to enter a challenge for the Stanley Cup without delay . . . The National Hockey League bosses, who controls the playoffs for the ''world championship" trophy, have a habit of turning aside ambitious teams with the explanation that their challenges come too late . . . They'd have to think up a new excuse at this time to avoid meeting the Coast Guardsmen. Cutlers Are Sharp A look at the Cutters' squad explains why they are listed as potential champions even though they play in the Eastern "amateur" League ... In goal they have Frankie (Mr, Zero) Brimsek of the Bruins with Hub Nelson, former Minneapolis pro. in reserve. Leading the defense arc three other big leaguers, Art Coulter of the Rangers, Alex Mutter of the Red Wings and Johnny Mariucci of the Black- hawks, plus Manny Cotlow, minor league veteran . . . The forsvards are mostly youngsters, but Ossie Asmundson and Billy Purccll have had pro experience, Cleveland's Alex (Bud) Cook reports to the Coast Guard today and likely will wind up at Curtis Bay and they say Charlie Plitt, Johnny Brown (a Georgia boy, of all things) and Seymour Hunter have developed into a swell trio of forwards . . . How they all happen to be at one station may be another story, but the story they agree on is that they loined the Coast Guard because it's the best-known of the services In the Great Lakes country that most of them call home. One-Minute Sports Branch Rickey definitely put the finger on Dixie Walker as the "one player" Leo Durochcr didn't like when the brain called a special press conference yesterday to announce that Dixie had signed three months ahead of the usual lime . . . And it that wasn't enough, Branch remarked that Dixie "spoke in high praise of Leo as a former manager." . . . Brigham Young and Oklahoma Aggies will be the first basketball visitors to the Garden this winter, arriving early In December. Oklahoma U. is due late in the season . . . Dcfcnsoman Ott Heller of the Rangers, exempt from military service in Canada because he's over 81 and married, has been called by his New York draft board. Servise Dcpt. Sergeants Jim and Jack McCul lough, identical twins who played the two guard positions on the Penn freshman team, are playing differ cut positions in the army air force's touch football league at Miami Beach, Fla.

This means they must hold the gateway open between Krivoi Rog and Nikolayev on the Bug river, not far from the mouth of the Dnieper. That's a bloody job, and may be largely love's labor lost. While all this is going on in the extreme south I think we should do well to keep a weather eye on sectors further north. Fresh trouble seems to be boiling up for the Germans in the Kiev sector, And above there on the Smolensk front the invaders face the danger of a further offensive which might cut through their line and hew a road clear into the Baltic states and East Prussia. Our guess is that while Herr Hitler will have the traditional white Christmas in Russia, the poor fellow isn't headed for very merry yuletide. Mauriello and Savold Meet Friday Night By SID FEDER . New York, Nov. 5 (/P)— There hasn't been a steer roped or a bronco "busted" in Madison Square. Garden the past few days since the rodeo left, so tonight Tami Mauriello and Lee Savold do little "cow-punching" on each Tom Harmon Missing in China Theater Market Report Hope-Gurdon Kickoff Set for 8p.m. Friday A close battle is in store for local 'ans tonight when the Hope High School Bobcats cnterlatn a Gurdon eleven at the local stadium In a non-conference contest. Game time is 8 o'clock. Fearing some of the regulars arc too confident. Coach Hammons plans lo substltulc frequently and night possibly slart many of the second team. Practically every member of the squad will see act- on, the Bobcat mentor promised. Although dope slightly favors the Bobcats, Gurdon has the rcputalion of putting up plenty of scrap and .he Cals may be surprised. Fearing this, Hammons, besides substituting, plans several changes In :hc lineup in an effort to strengthen the team.

The Leading WARD & SON We * e Druggist Got It on other's -noggini 'for : ten;!rounds.i or less by ' action, Tami and Lee are a cotiple^ofj old cowhands from the Bronx, New 1 York, and Paterson, N. J., respectively. Lee used to hail from Iowa, but his closest association with the cowboy business came from a neat, but not gaudy, rendition of the first two choruses of "Git Along Little Dogie." He's going to have to "git along" tonight quite a bit better than he did a year ago, when he had his last shot at Tami, because on that occasion, after dumping the uptown thumper on the floor, Lee ran out of gas and dropped a decision. This time, as a result, Tami's a 5 to 9 favorite to make that first one stick. This corner, however, likes Lee to get enough mileage out of his legs and arms this time to come in front. Incidentally, in addition to being a brawl between two of the better heavyweights around and about these days, tonight's tea party also brings together a pair of walking adverlisements for reducing treatments. Savold once weighed a mere 250, before slicing himself down to a workable 190. And Tami, laying off for several months early this year, blossomed out to a round 217. He's down to a mere 190 or so now, since earning his coffee and cakes again with a string of five victories in recent weeks. Savold has had a dozen fights this year, winning 11. Promoter Mike Jacobs is gleefully looking for a 14,000 crowd and a $50,000 house. Memphis Mode Head of Southern Loop Memphis, Nov. 5 —(/Pi — President Billy Evans of the Southern Association announced today that the league's headquarters would be located here after next January 1. "I have just finished closing the affairs of the league In the Atlanta office," Evuns said in an announcement. He said he would establish a permanent residence in Memphis "for the duration of my five yeai contract." The headquarters were located in Memphis during the administratioi of John D. Martin, now a federa appeals court Vdge, but were transferred to Atlanta when the late Trammel Scott was electee president. Evans said the directors desired a "city more centrally located than Atlanta." Canada has doubled her steel pro ] duction since the .jutbreuk ot \\ai Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov. 5 —WP)— Army pilot Tom Harmon, Michigan's All-America football player who cheated death in the skies once this year, is reported missing in action over China. The second lieutenant's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Harmon, were notified last night by the War Department that their son, a fighter pilot, was unreported since Oct. 30. Harmon, the sole survivor of a bomber crash in the Dutch Guiana jungles last April, was attached to the 23rd group of the 449th Fighter Squadron stationed in the Far East No hint as to whether Japanese guns or an accident cut down one of Michigan's greatest, gridiron stars was contained in the. telegram receiyed by Harrfion's parents. It said simply Harmon "has been reportedYjinissing in action since Oct. 30. If further details or: ther information are received, you ill be promptly notified." Harmon was transferred to China ast summer from North Africa vhere he was stationed after the rash of his bomber, "Old 98,'V iamed after his college football lumber, in the South American ungle. Last to hear from Harmon was lis football coach, H. O. (Fritz) !risler, who said the All America alfback of 1939 and 1940 had writ- en in a letter dated Oct. 14 that he Japanese pilots were inferior to he Nazi fliers." "Tommy wrote that he was in >ne of two American planes umped by 17 Zeros and that they two while the rest fled," Criser said. v Both Crisler and Harmon's fa- her expressed belief Harmon flew n support of sharp Chinese action against the Japs in the vicinity of I ianor reported Oct. 29. 'I'm still riding with Tommy," asserted Crisler. "If he had a fight- ng chance at all, he'll come out of his one all right, too." Harmon's father said "we still have hopes that Ke landed safely and did not fall into Jap hands." First WeeiToTDuck Hunting No Good Little Rock, Nov. 5 (/P)— Lack of rain and continued warm weather have made life disappointing for duck hunters during the first week of Arkansas' open season. Joe Felton, district supervisor of the State Game and Fish Commission reported today that very few ducks had been spotted in the Stut- art area and that eight out of ten reservoirs in that section were dry. Other supervisors reported small flights on Norfolk Lake, Baxter County, Lake Niinrod, in Perry and Yell counlies and on the White River in Arkansas and Mississippi Counties. ST.

JONES Nassau, Bahamas, Nov. 5 (/I 5 )—... Suave Alfred dc Marigny, returning to the witness sland to face the ordeal of cross-examination, testified today he was not angry at the father-in-law he is accused of killing, the multi-millionaire Sir Harry Oakes. The Bahamas Supreme Court chamber was filled an hour before the session opened by curious persons drawn by the prospects of a verbal duel between the husband of Sir Harry's daughter Nancy and rapier-tongucd Attorney General Eric Hallinan. But before turning the accused man over to the crown for questioning, Chief Justice Sir Oscar Bedford Daly read his longhand account of the lestimony given by dc Marigny yesterday when he flatly denied he bludgeoned and burned his fa.thcr-in-law lo death in a bedroom of Sir Harry's estate, Wcslbourne, last July. It was in correcting the wordage that dc Marigny denied he was angry with Sir Harry, with whom he admitted having altercations. The red-robed, whitc-wiggcd chief justice had reached the parl of the lestimony in which de Margi- ny said he did not speak to his father-in-law after last March 30. The witness said Sir Harry came to his home at 4 a. m. and made his young son, now Sir Sidney, leave with him, and "I never spoke to him after that."

JRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, Nov. 5 —(/P) Grains advanced moderately today in relatively quiet trading, a little mill buying and some covering by previous short sellers aiding the upturn. Traders said the firmness was natural in view of the shakeout Wednesday and yesterday on liance with Russia to eliminate possible friction which might arise from ignorance of each other's military plans. The second and third points are regarded here as most likely to come true. A war declaration is labelled as extremely doubtful while any alliance with Russia appears unlikely. Allied air bases in Turkey would be only of limited value since road and rail lines are inadequate to handle heavy shipments of supplies. Several large airdromes have been built since the start of the war wilh Ihe aid of British technicians.

LOFTUS Washington, Nov. G (IP)— The long and bitter fight over coal miners' wages appeared virtually ended today with the War Labor Board's conditional approval of the Ickes-Lewis pay scale plan and a nod of assent from the United Mine Workers (UMW), The WLB's principal reservation involves Ihe formula for paying pieceworkers. But official union spokesmen observed: "We'll peacefully seek a solution of lhat and we'll go about'the job of producing coal." After seven months of conlrover- sy and four paralyzing slrikcs which cost the nation more than 40,000,000 tons of coal, this is the picture: UMW President John L. Lewis has a memorandum agreement with Fuels Boss Harold Ickes; under |t. the .soft coal miner who for- ''TOcriy;" roc'oved $7- 1 a day '-wiiV^re'-" ceivc $8.50, agreeing to dig coal an hour longer, partly by halving his 30-rriinute lunch period. After his 40lh hour underground he starts getting paid for travel lime and a half. In a six-day week his increase is aboul $11.50, so that the average daily increase is closer to $2 than $1.50. His total week's earnings will be close to $57. Some may earn more and the average would exceed $60. Provisions covering anthracite miners were fully approved. They grant 70 cents a day additional.- Only a few anti-climatic chapters of the 1043 coal drama appeared lo remain: (1) The meeting of conditions which the WLB attached to its approval of the Ickes Lewis, agreement; (2) Determination of new ceiling prices, and (3) restoration of the mines to their private owners. The board voled 11 to 1 for ap- I proval, with public member Wayne L. Morse casting the lone dissenting vote. He denounced the policy of approving a contract "which appears to have been diclaled at Ihe point of the strike weapon." Edward R. Burke, president of ' Ihe Southern Coal Operators' Association, commented: "If the new contract really provides for one additional hour of productive work, then the extra pay can be justified," But he added: -"While on paper, the board has adhered to the stabilization program, we think that no increased production will result from ,th,e contract. Maybe, if the miners'- are really encouraged lo work, Ihe con- 1 Iract may actually be effective." The four employer members of the board who supported the decision said: wrong in Ihe approach of the national school leadership to the particular problem of federal aid. What is wanted, of course, is help— just as the stales get help in building highways— but the teachers' leaders are always confusing matters by crying for "equality," when as a matter of fact there is no equality anywhere, whether between the states, or between the various sections of an individual stale. •* * * The Arkansas Gazette wrote a morning, the among other piece this asking, isn't pungent editorial things: Why health protcclion equal in all states? Why the gasoline tax is 7 cents a gallon in some states and only 2 cents a gallon in other states? Why some states charge income and inheritance taxes, while others do-not? And then the Gazette summarizes matters in Ihe following words: "The answer ... is lhat our America is a nation of self-governing states and not a nation • like N-azi Germany, where all historic intra-German boundary lines have been wiped out and the whole counlry is run and \ regimented from Berlin. "It may fairly be said thai in their argumenls for federal support for public schools in Ihe ._.

They arc virtually taking tihe position that the fathers of the Constitution should have reasoned: We must not make this country a republic, of self- governing states because the.n not every person in every state would be on the same level in points of benefits and advantages as every person in every other slate."- - !: ' ,, What we. arc mostly concerned about is that there arc' school teachers in the Soulh and Wcsl who draw no more than $600 salary a year, bul the controversy overlooks this in order to debate a visionary "equality"—and for this sad stale of affairs I blame Ihe nalional leachers' lobby. They are trying for the whole loaf—and so they have failed lo gel a single slice. All we really want lo do is to get some more money for teachers salaries. Federal help is a possi- bilily (it it can be arranged without any polilical strings attached) but federal help is by no means the whole story. I am tired of hearing the teachers' political leadership constantly bellyache that their sole salvation lies in setting up a federal Department of Education, obtaining federal grants for all schools, and run- (Continued on Page Three) Keeping Up With Ration Coupons Processed and Canned Foods: November 1—First day for green stamps A, B, and C in Ration Book 4.

One of the Ihings lhal is wrong with the school picture in Ar kansas—a' local issue which the teachers' polilical leadership doesn't have .the guts lo buck (but goes off crying to Santa Glaus in Washington)—is this: The Arkansas Corporation Commission disclosed in the state papers the morning of October 31, 1943, that 24 of Arkansas' 74 reporting counties showed lower real estate assessments for 1943 than foi 1942; 14 counties showed a drop in personal tax assessments—and H counties showed a drop in both! And this occurred at a time whei the market value of all property— particularly real estate—has hit the Americans Break Last Remnants of Nazi Line By EDWARD KENNEDY Allied Headquarters, Algiers, Nov. 6 (IP)— Allied forces in Italy smashed away the last remnants of the Germans' powerful Massico Ridge-Trigno line in taking the key points of Vasto on the Adriatic and Venafro in the upper Volturno valley, It was announced today. Forging ahead in the western sector, British patrols of the Fifth Army crossed the Garigllano river to probe the new line which the enemy has formed north of there. Americans of the Fifth Army drove ahead into the mountains after occupying Venafro in a fierce fight in the tortuous upper reaches of the Volturno. The Germans attached such importance to this mountain fastness that they threw a new division — the 305th infantry — into the fight in a last minute effort to save it, but even these fresh Nazi fighters from the north were routed by the Americans. In the air war, American med- um bombers knocked out a large portion of the German air forces operating from Albania with a heavy raid yesterday on Berat Ku- voc airfield in the center of the liny country. The field was one of the bases from which the Germans were operating against patriot forces in the Balkans. There now are five German divisions in battle on the Fifth' Army front, it was disclosed, and three opposing the Eighth Army. In addition to a five mile surge up the Adriatic coast to take Vasto, Eighth Army troops also made gains of a mile and a half in the region some 25 miles inland, cap tu rWS .Pictracupa^ Sessanp, ...and Duronia. ' ' The Germans, who in recent days have been using tanks in the Adriatic coastal sector, resisted fiercely at Vasto, where their protective mountains run down to a shelf beside the sea. Along this shelf runs the coastal road to Pescara — the back door to Rome. In striking to Vasto, the Eighth swept through San Salvo where the Germans had held out more than a week, and on the basis of reports from the front this morning the British are within 15 miles of the Sangro river, where the Germans undoubtedly will attempt another stand. The Nazis still are resisting at some places along the north bank of the Trigno river, but their forces are threatened on both sides by Gen. Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's troops, and they are not likely to stay much longer. The crossing of the Garigliano by British patrols was made near the Tyrhonian coast, where the enemy flooded fields near the river. These patrols went into the hills north of the river to feel out German strength. No crossing of the Garigliano in mass has yet been achieved, an Allied officer said. U. S. Mitchell bombers and P-38 Lightning escorts devastated me Berat Kucov airfield, one of the bases from which the Germans are operating against guerrilla forces in the Balkans. The raiders showered hundreds of fragmentation bombs among at least 20 fighters and dive-bombers aground, setting many fires. P-40 Warhawks struck at the port of Split in Yugoslavia scoring several bomb hits on a 200-foot merchant vessel. Liberators of the new U. S. 15th Air Force hit the railway bridge at Falconara-Marittima, just north of Ancona on the east coast line, impeding movement of German reinforcements of troops and supplies, and also hammered freight yards, barracks, and warehouses in highest figure in World War No. 1!

JONES Nassau, Bahamas, Nov. 6 (/P) — Today's War Mdf> _ RC/5SMN THRUSTS H NAZIHCLO ARfA Alfred de Marigny, accused slayer of the multi-millionaire Sir Harry Oakes, reported in Bahamas Supreme Court today he received about $110,000 from a former wife "to use as I pleased." The tall defendant, the husband of Sir Harry's daughter Nancy, made the statement from the witness stand when he returned to listen to the reading of his testimony denying he beat and burned Oakes to death last July. Sir Oscar Bedford Daly, the chief justice, and all others in the courtroom understood de Marigny to say yesterday he did not get 25,000 pounds (about $110,000) from his second wife, Ruin Fahneslock de Marigny, from whom he was divorced before he married Nancy. Immaculate in a white linen suit, do Marigny stood nonchalantly on the witness stand while the judge went over his hand-written account of yesterday's- • cross'' examination, by Attorney General Eric Hallinan.* "Did you receive 25,000 pounds, from ..-Ruth?" asked the chief jus-' tice when he reached the record of testimony about de Marigny's financial dealings with his former wife, "I did receive the money," said de Marigny, "to use as I pleased." He leaned on the rail, and pulled at an cyebrown while the reading continued. The courtroom was only partly filled today, despite a general feeling; that some bond defense stroke was in the making. The chief justice asked to sec a copy of a financial statement drawn up by de Marigny and Banker John H. Anderson to show to Ruth. After reading il, Sir Oscar asked whether it showed the defendant' financial condition. "Yes, sir," replied dc Marigny. "Does it show the amount that Nancy advanced you, or that Vis- delou held, or the value of the governor's harbor properly?" asked Ihe juslice. He referred lo the transfer of several thousand pounds to the account of the Marquis George de Visdelou, de Marigny's close friend, and to property which dc Marigny said lie owned at governor's harbor. "No, your honor," the witness admitted. The justice was visibly irked, and de Marigny explained the state- mcnl was confined lo Ihe use of the 25,000 pounds, including 10,000 pounds of a "separation agreement."

S. army men now believe. Even discounting somewhat the Russian announcement that Nazi casualties in the last four months amounted to 2,700,000, informed persons here said today the German losses have been enormous, and to all practical purposes irro- placcublc. A month ago, military circles figured lhat Germany had 300 to 310 divisions. However, many of these divisions were assumed to be below strength, and made up of inferior personnel. The Nazis put on an intensive manpower drive last winter- and spring, when the 17-year-olds were drafted and men up to 50 were assigned to combat units. The objective was 2,000,000 men, the result probably about 1,500,000. To get them, the Reich relaxed physical standards, virtually ended all employment in service trades, and closed down thousands of retail shops.

Allied aerial scouts counted 53 Japanese warships and cargo vessels in five convoys steaming from the fortress island of Truk toward heavily bombed Rabaul, key to the island empire's southeaslern defenses. This is exactly the same number of ships listed as sunk or damaged by American bombers and warships in the New Britain- Solomons area this week. Enemy reinforcements being poured into the Allied target area were needed to replace the 26 ships sunk and 27 damaged since Sunday night, including eight warships sunk and nine damaged. They are needed lo supply or rescue some 30,000 Japanese troops on Bougainville island, their last foothold in the Solomons, where American marines were mopping up and consolidating their positions on Empress bay. Arrival of this fleet will be the signal for more aerial bombardments and probably new sea engagements. In Northern Burma, elephants, rafts and motorboats carried reinforcements against American- trained Chinese troops, described as the best equipped in China's history, who were clearing Japanese out of the .path of the prospective Ledo road. The new route will join the Burma road to establish a land supply line to. China. The Chinese have advanced about 100 miles from India since their campaign started Iwo weeks ago. Only Japanese success reported was in Central Eastern China where radio Tokyo said the invaders were "advancing vigorously" west of Tungting lake. The Chinese yesterday announced 30,000 Japanese made a general advance in this area up the Yangtze river valley.

In Washington, quick Senate action was forecast on a resolution to keep Manuel Quezon as president of the Philippine government until the United States restores civilian authority in the islands, despite a constitutional provision against anyone holding the Philippine presidency more than eight years. Quezon will have completed eight years as chief executive in another eight days. The reslution was introduced in the Senate while Jose P. Laurel, president of the Japanese-sponsored Philippine "republic," joined with puppet heads of four other Asiatic countries and Japan in accusing the United States and Great Britain of "insatiable aggression and exploitation" in East Asia, This Tokyo meeting, said the Japanese radio, adopted a program of "mutual aid and assistance" shortly after Premier Gen. Hideki Tojo of Japan warned his "chosen people" against displaying "a superior and haughty altitude" toward natives of conquered area. In line with the new spirit of "cooperation" was a Netherlands news agency report thai the Japanese have imposed compulsory mil- ilary drill in the schools of Java, even for girls.

Senators Want Account of Moscow Meet By FRANCIS J. KELLY Washington, Nov. 6 —(yp) —Senators who rolled up an 85 to 5 endorsement of the peace principle enunciated at the Moscow conference now want to have a first-hand account of the document from the man who helped.make it possible— Secretary of State Cordell Hull. A movement was .promoted to invite Hull to address a joint session of Senate and -House upon his return from Russia. •':'.•• Senator Lucas (D-IU) said such a convocation would-.': show the world that the United Stales and its. .elected representatives are intensely interested in the cause of world .peace and the .establishment of machinery to maintain it. While the final decision rests with Hull, it was learned that the movement for his appearance has the blessing of high government figures. The showdown roll call on postwar policy came at 5:30 p. m. yesterday, cutting off two weeks' de- bale.
