PRICE 5c COPY There Except Lady Known as Janice On .June 7 last The Star published a letter attacking Senator J.. W. Fulbright for his alleged refusal to bo interviewed by a delegation from New York City lobbying 'on certain bills before the scna'e. That letter was signed by one Janice Evans, giving her address as 23 West 26th St., New- York City. A few weeks later we began to hear from that letter. From Washington came authentic reports that the address was a phoney. Finally a test letter was sent Janice Evans at the place she called home, and back came the Post Office Department with a memo ' "Party Unknown." - We paid our respects, right then and there, to propagandists who write to the newspapers without honestly identifying themselves— ' and at the same time we sent word to Bill Fulbright asking that we be f kept posted on any government ',investigation that might bo made "of the New York City address which figured in the controversy. Here's some new information from Senator Fulbright under date of Sept. 28: ;• ,,"An investigation was made in New York and no one by the name of Janice Evans was known at the address given al 2,'i West 2Glh St..

It is interesting to note. however, that the following individuals and organizations are listed as the occupants at 23 West 2Gth St.: "American Committee for the Protection of Foreign Born "American Labor Parly— New York County Committee "Committee for Democratic Eights "Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born "Council on African Affairs "Frederick V.

Republicans Plea for Two Party System Harrison. Oct 1 —(/Pi—The 1048 Republican campaign in Arkansas was touched off here today with a plea for the state to turn to the two-party system. Wallace Townsend of Little Rock, GOP national committeeman, asked support for presidential nominee Thomas E. Dewey and Dolton Dotson. Republican nominee for Congress in the Third (Northwest Arkansas' District. In a speech prepared for dc- ^ivery at the northwest Arkansas | district fair, Townsend said States | Rights Democrats could not ob- [tain local and national benefits which Arkansas would receive if it would become a doubtful state. 'They (States Righters) simply propose to split the Democratic vote, but they can do that and the Truman electors will still be elected." Referring to Dotson's opposition jto Democrat Jim Trimble, the in- jcumbent. Townsend said: I "For many years the Rc-publi: can party of Arkansas has i dreamed of the time when it would I win a major campaign in Arkan- ISPS by electing a Republican con- By United Press Housewives kept a close eye on decline in retail food prices indications of the long-anticipated decline in retail food priceas increased. With wholesale prices on beef, lamb and pork tumbling on the New York and Chicago markets, there was a general feeling that meat prices may have passed their peak. But experts still were wary about predicting just how fast the drop could be the consumer. A spokesman for one of the big four packers said frankly that "for the moment we have too much meal on hand."

In the dairy industry: At Milwaukee—in Wisconsin's dairyland —two dairies announced cuts of one-half cent on milk and cream. The president of one of the companies said the cut was made because officials think the price of raw milk is dropping. In Chicago. Richard F. Uhlmann,president of the board of trade, blamed the government's grain export buying for the high costs of commodities during the last two years. He al.so contended that farm price supports should be kept at levels. 10, Ncattlcton.

He is A. G. Bryant, president of the National Tool Builders Association, who is just back front two months in England and Europe. Mr. Bryant charges that, too many dollars arc going into immediate relief and loo few into recovery, as specifically represented in the purchase of machine tools. European industrialists can buy American equipment only after national authorities have' allocated ECA dollars: to them, he says. Thus manufacturers must buy machine tools in non-dollar countries, where plants are swamped with orders, deliveries are slow. and the products, says Mr. Bryant. are frequently inferior or unsuitable. Mr. Bry;i:it. of course, has a specialized and perhaps limited interest in the recovery program. And tho story of ECA dollar allocation is not simple. Koverlneless. his critical report seems sound and worth the attention of European aid officials on both sides oi the Atlantic. Direct relief in Europe is still necessary.

Ocl. 1 — (UP) — Soviet Yi'k fighters, switching their buzzing "attacks" to the British air corridor, zoomed within 50 yards of a British uansport loaded with supplies for blockaded Berlin today. Michael Davison, a former RAF fighter pilot and pilot of the heavily-laden Bristol wayfarer, said one Yak made a "quarter attack," peeling off 50 yeards or less from the nose of his transport. He said a second Yak was "on my tail," Both simulated attacks were made over Schoenfeld in the Soviet occupation zone, about 10 minutes form the British-operated Gatow airfield in Berlin.

Ten thousand persons overflowing the Jefferson county armory at Louisville roared applause last 'ght as he unleashed a bare knuckle attack on the National Association of Manufacturers. He was welcomed to Louisville by a howling, screaming, whistling populace. With the help of Republican congressmen, he said, the NAM killed price controls with a "vicious," organized campaign it financed with 53,000,000. Using language as homespun as a calico dress, the gray-haired chief executive talked of living costs in terms of "hamburgers" and "chuck roasts."

That last formal speech of a two-week campaign tour of the West. He capped that campaign in Salt Lake City last night with proposals for a nine-point foreign policy he said was aimed at "a lust and lasting peace." 'The means by which we seek to achieve that goal will be, first She strengthening of those forces which make for peace in tho world and, second, a firm but even-tempered resistance to the forces of aggression wherever they are seeking to break down and wear away the structure of human freedom," he declared. A crowd which overflowed the 8.000-scat mormon tabernacle, filled two smaller closeby buildings and stood on th e Temple Square grounds applauded as Dewey said: "The best along with way for us to Soviet leaders is to pluses are being increased daily for the 2.000.000 residents of Western Berlin. Howley conceded that "I can see a cold winter ahead for Berlin." when he'spoke at a news conference yesterday on the 100th day oi the blockade. He added, however, "the airlift has been more than meeting Berlin's minimum requirements." He explained that when tho United States and Britain began shuttling food and fuel into Berlin from the Western zones June 2G there was food on hand for '.'A days. Now there is food for 39 clays. There is now a 48-day supply of flour, the most essential food item, 0:1 hand compared to 25 days at the start.. And the planes have even gained some ground on the coal supply. An average of 2,300 metric tons of coal is being flown into Berlin every day, Howley said, while the planned consumption is only about 100 metric tons. This, admittedly, will not keep Berlin industries working at full capacity nor even maintain really comfortable warmth in its homes. But one German official assured Howley that Berliners were willing to endure the hardship. "The population knows it cannot deal with them as strong equals and by doing so to restore their respect for us. "We shall deal with the Soviet as with all other nations in a spirit of friendship and patience and fairness, but we should make it perfectly plain that now or hereafter we do not intend to be bullied or bluffed." Dewey proposed as a nine-point policy: In a violent attack on U. S. atomic policy, Soviet Deputy Foieijin Minister Andrei Y. VisliinsUy lolct Ihe ftl'i-membor United Nation., political committee that the United States is pursuing "war aims " He added that "it is a mistake to believe x x x that only one nation has a monopoly on atomic enemy. That is a dangerous miscalculation." Later in his speech. Vishinsky repeated what was interpreted as a hint that Russia also has an atom bomb. He said the United Slates was building a bomb stockpile "in the illusion that America has a monopoly on the atom, bomb." "His is an interesting illusion, particularly for the Repubhca'a presidential candidate, Mr. Thomas E. Dewey, who, I learn, has said that America possesses exclusively the secret of the atom XXX. "Is this not proof that America's aim is not real cooperation through international control, but, in fact, nothing less than a pla.t to retain what they consider to be .exclusive knowledge of .Uomic 1 energy?" !
