INVESTIGATE GOV'T JOB SALES IN MISSISSIPPI Charge Racket by Pro-Truman Democrats in 1949 and 1950. By Associated Press ' JACKSON, Miss., Jul> 9. — A special U. S. grand jury convened Iieve today to investigate a "vicious job-selling racket" a senate subcommittee says was conducted bv pro-Truman Democrats in 1949-50. Approximately 165 witnesses have been summoned to testify over a 10-day period. A senate subcommittee on expenditures, - after investigating* published charges, reported it found there had been "brazen, widespread and open" sales of post office jobs by officers of the Mississippi Democratic committee and others. The Mississippi Democratic committee was a rump pro-Truman committee formed when the regular state Democratic party bolted the Truman ranks in 1948 to support the States Rights ticket. U. District Judge Allen Cox of Oxford presides over a special term of court for the investigation. Judge Sidney Mize excused himself. His brother, Frank Mize, of Forest, was chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Committee. The senate subcommittee reported it found that Curtis Rogers, secretary of the committee; Forrest Jackson, attorney; Frank Mize, and Curtis Reasley, former secretary of the committee, used political power "to extort contributions from persons seeking federal appointments in Mississippi." Say Hood Knew The subcommittee added that while evidence does not disclose that Clarence E. Hood, Jr., recognized by the National Democratic committee as Mississippi Committeeman, "handled any of the job selling transactions personally." the committee was of the opinion "Hood was aware of or should have had knowledge of, the corrupt activities of his political associates and he cannot escape responsibility in the matter." It reported finding further evidence tending to show that Hood, Jackson and possibly others "sought to use the political power and prestige of the committee for their personal financial advantage by attempting to exert influence in government contracts, RFC loans and other governmental transactions." The pro-Tfuman group was given patronage privileges by the Democratic National Committee, the subcommittee reported. Big Meteor Seen By Aiscsiated Press ] DETROIT.

SPECIAL DELIVERY— Smoky, only Dalmatian mascot for firemen in Cincinnati, places an order with bakery shop worker Ann Rawe. When she fills it, Smoky will deliver it to his buddies at Fire Company 46.

POPULATED CANYON About 500 ruins of ancient Indian pueblos have been found on the rims of Arizona's Grand Canyon. Cliff dwellings made by the Indians are found along the lower walls of the canyon in many places. Taft Writes Book On Foreign Policy •y Aii«cia «t <f Press WASHINGTON, July 9.— Senator Taft (R-Ohio) has finished writing a book on "Foreign Policy for Americans'' which might become a reference work for friend and foe in the 1952 campaign. Unless developments change his mind, Taft probably will formally pitch his hat into the ring this fall for the 1952 Republican presidential nomination. His new book, due in December, will put the Ohioan down in black and write on almost every phase of foreign policy. It may become something of a best seller among Democratic critics as well as Republican friends. Some of his supporters are known to feel the Ohioan should stick to his Senate knitting and FOR SALE OLD NEWSPAPERS leave the writing ofjoks to others. However, Taft sayaat anybody who wants to fiput how he stands on any forcijolicy issue can thumb througopies of his speeches and he's t saving them the trouble t>yompiling his views between twovers. Those views have betmiform- ly critical of the Trumiadminis- tration's handling of icnational issues which he blami recently for creating "the disasus critis in which we now find fselfves." Taft's literally efforprobably will hit the bookstores ter Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of 'W York has fired off a series articles for Collier's magazin on his current trip to Koreand Asia.
