All told, statistics showed today, there have been 20,387 cases of infantile paralysis reported during 1948, but almost half of the cases were confined to three states—California, Texas and North Carolina. California with 3,512 cases led: North Carolina was second with 2,293; and Texas was third with 1.520. The other cases were scattered in about 38 states. Spokesmen for the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis expressed belief that other than an evening Los Angeles county, no large industrial city was stricken during the 1948 season.

' ' * * * Trend Toward Uniform Wage Cuts Skilled Man's Incentive By JAMES THRASHER Forty years ago, the Labor Department's division of wage analysis recalls, the average pay of skilled workers in American industry was more than 100 per cent holding the disease in the three "hot" areas. In 1944. for instance, North Carolina hospitals would not patients and it was set up an emergency hospital. In the epidemic this year North Carolina hospitals accepted polio cases. In the number of cases the nation over, the 1948 epidemic was about as bad as in 194G, the second worst year in this country. The number may have increased, too, because medical scientists have higher than that of unskilled labor, inosis. The trend has been steadily downward since then until today the difference is 55 per cent. We don't think that-the figure of 40 years ago was quite in line. But we agree with Foremen's Institute that if the!weapon if polio ever is controlled downward trend continues, Indus- omplctely. try may be in for some skilled j The 1948 season also saw the use trouble. ton.

But I would invariably return the finds and complained to the director against these despicable tactics. He would shrug his shoulders and take no action. I collected dress patterns, in addition to botanical specimens which I carefully mounted. Frequently I found all these messed up by a mysterious hand which had obviously ransacked all the drawers in my chest, without even bothering to put the contents in order. Whenever I complained to the director, he hinted that this might be work of the United States secret police. Another form of attack in the psychological warfare waged against me was the question fired at me now and then, "Why don't you ever write letters back home?" Not to be pestered too much; I would once in a while pen a letter developed better means of cliag- During thc next few months, results of a new test for polio may be made know. Scientists in many laboratories have been working to develop a quick test, which long me National [has been regarded as a necessary that if the!weapon if polio ever is manpower It is no secret that when the unskilled worker is paid a decent living he is not the only one who benefits. Probably something more than the humanitarian instincts of management acounts for the steady rise in pay for unskilled and semiskilled work in the last few years. Many unions have worked hard to bring it about, to be sure. But it is still true that industry is creating new and bigger markets with higher wages. A good deal of squawking has come from industrial management on this score, as when Henry Ford I started paying his men $5 a day. But better management methods and technological improvements have made it possible to increase wages without sacrificing profits or —until recently—raising prices with every pay hike. But when the melon is cut shouldn't the skilled worker get a fair, if not an equal, portion'.' The Labor Department analysts indicate that he does not. From October, 1943, to April, 1947, the average pay of all skills in our industry rose 32.3 per cent. Skilled labor got 27.7 per cent of this, while the boost to semi-skilled and unskilled were respectively 34.5 and 35.7. In several industries this gap was much wider. One of the great virtues of our economic and political system is the incentive and opportunity for advancement that it A'Ves to the individual. That self-evident truth has been proclaimed from so many rostrums that maybe people grow weary of hearing it. Yet the fact remains that we have .Dually paid off on skill. And the connection between that system ;v:d our pie- eminence in industrial production is no accident. , We have reason to give thanks for that pay-off system. So did the Soviet Communists in the recent war—the same ones who by their own frequent admission are out to destroy that system. So have some other Europeans today who don't think much more of capitalism than the people in Moscow. But if skill continues to be less of a salable commodity all the time, there won't be much incentive left for a worker to loam or de velop specialized abilities. Over a long run that could bring us :tu\vn several pegs from our industrial pre-eminence and our pies-cut high living standard. The Soviet Cor-mumis .•: have ;i slogan or philosophy or v.-htitjver: "From each according to his ability, to each according lo his need." But il is significant ihat they have never been a bit; to p.i: the idea into practice. This 'rend toward uniform wages is a trend toward that idea. It is scarceh. consistent with tin- Americjn sys- tem—allh.oti.in. as in so many other • things, wo seem to be doing it bel- ter than the JiuKsiai;;. of a drug in the treatment of polio. The drug, known as darvisul, was effective against polio in mice, and some favorable results were obtained in a few human patients. The human trials were too limited, however, to enable scientists to evaluate the drug. No reports are expected soon.

Meeting with the council here, thc committee members received mimeographed lists of suggested problms, ranging from abolishing the tax on agricultural gasoline to a complete solution of the state's highway needs. The groups, named recently by Council Director James R. Campbell of Hot Springs, were expected to turn out workable solutions to be placed before the 1949 legislature. Governor-designate Sid McMath appeared before the joint council and committee meeting. Before thc meeting, nowever, his aides emphasized that the problems prepared in his officer vcre not recommendations but merely suggestions. All of the items concerned phases of McMath's proposed legislative program. The roads and highways- committee, headed by State Sen. Lee Bcarden of Leachville, was asked to make a complete study of the present highway system. Among the 11 specified highway problems listed was the question of matching federal aid funds, "with particular emphasis on the use of the state's credit." McMath conducted his recent successful campaign on a platform of obtaining funds for road construction through four separate bond issues. Other road problems suggested were long-range planning, cooperation between state and local governments, the possible reorganize tion of the highway commission, maintenance districts and other divisions of the highway department; the possible elimnat'ion from the state highway system of dead-end roads and other minor loop roads, and the problem of transportation arising as a result of the probable abandonment of the Missouri and Arkansas railroad and recommen- Continucd on Page Three o Cook Course Bobcats Open Conference Play Against Strong Team From Texarkana Tonight : Hope and Texarkana fans anxiously await tho opening kickoff at •Hamtnons Stadinm tonight at 8 o'clock in a football game that probably will be the hardest and toughest of the season. A record crowd of the season is expected. For Texarkana a win would simply mean a repeat of last year's tangle in which they knocked off Hope. For Hope a win would leave them undefeated in seasonal and district play. Tho Porkers already have lost to Camden in District 7-AA. and a loss to the Bobcats shove them out of thc running. It's n perfect setup and nobody would be too surprised to see Tcx- arkana come through. The Bobcats lave their work cut put for them and know they must play their and leave it lying around unsealed. I knew that it would be pounced upon and thought, "All right, let the fools gloat over it." In the summer of 1947, I was given a two weeks vacation. I went to Vice Consul for permission Secretary of Broadcast— Mrs Sorokin and asked to go to Niagara Falls. It was unthinkable for a Soviet teacher to take a trip with- 'oul dispensation. For a natural science teacher to want to see one of the wonders of the world seemed reasonable enough. Yet Sorokin suggested that I go in the company with another colleague, Nikonova, who was likable though a Communist. That was agreeable, and. I asked: "When czn we leave?" He replied "Tomorrow." I was happy. Tomorrow came, and Nikonova arrived with that tidings that Valentina Orlova, one of the hellcats of our school, was to join our party in a day or so. That would make two Communists to watch me, I thought helplessly. The trip was again postponed until we were joined by an elderly teacher from Washington. Finally the little party took off. At Niagara Falls, where the museum interested me especially, the two Communist women ganged up on me to harrass me at every step. In the course of the 27 months o" serving as a teacher in the Soviet school this was the only trip I was allowed to take, and that under constant surveillance.

American Legion is Looking Forward to Continuation of Contributions to Way of Life By HAL BOYLE New York — UP) — The American Legion, which opens its 30th national convention in Miami Sunday, has set thc most ambitious goal of its history for U)49 — 5,000,000 members. The campaign is being undertaken in the face of a post-war slump in membership which has affected all organizations of war veterans. The legion now has a record number of posts — more than 17,000 — but its membership as of Oct. a was 3,UU5,614, as compared with 3,249,203 a year ago.

Oct. 15 — (SpD— In a speech explaining the background and outlining the proposal of a National Fair Employment Practice Committee to the Magnolia Kiwanis Club last night, Congressman Oren Harris said it is a "sad, sad, commentary" that FEPC has such strong support in this country when its origin and ancestry is Communistic and put forth first by the French Popular Front in 1935 as a companion of the sit-down strike.

Oct. 15. — (UP) — Th French go v o r n m e nt, battling strikes, high prices and political threats to its existence, decided today lo invoke the death penalty against major food speculators. Premier Henri Queuille headed an inner cabinet meeting last night at which it was decided to apply the so-called Farges Law of October, la-16, in thc battle against thc black market. Thc law, which takes its name from former Food Minister Yves Fargo, provides the death penalty Committee of a congressional committee that successfully opposed FEPC in the last Congress, said that, "Regardless of whether the Republicans or Democrats win, in the coming election, we will be faced in the next Congress with'the (,'rcatcst threat for the adoption of FEPC." "President Truman has on a number of occasions requested Congress for its adoption. The Democratic platform calls upon Congress to support the President in the program." "Governor Dewey is even stronger on such a proposal. He sponsored and brought about the adoption <u the first FEPC law in the Slat of New York and said, it is just as fundamentally a part of our American heritage as the Bill of Rights, etc." pro- milk for speculators in basic food ducts such as meat, wine, and grains. Minister of Justice Andre Marie said after the cabinet meeting that the government intended to sap the strength of the strike movement by making workers pay stretch further: Some 350,000 coal miners still were idle in the 12day strike that has hampered French heavy industry on the eve of winter. The threat of new rioting was seen at f3eglcs on the outskirts of Bordeaux, where CGT metal workers barricaded themselves inside an automobile plant despite a government order to halt their sit- down strike and evacuate the plant. Tho workers freed the plant director this morning after holding him captive since yesterday. The CGT called for a general metal workers strike in Bordeaux this morning and asked the rank and file of its membership lo be ;it the IJogles plant to prevent tough Mobile guards from evacuating the plant. A recent government order raising coal prices 10 per cent had repercussions last night when two non-Communist labor federations quit the National Advisory Price CommUlee.

They could not even inquire whether the applicant was a naturalized or native born citizen. They could not ask if he is a citi/un ot the United Slates." "2.

Th soon a.-: the w would return hoi 'lor the aood By LOUIS NEVIN Paris, Oct. 15 — (,V) — Andiei Y. Vishinsky broke his Kremlin-imposed silence in thc security council today and renewed his'rhargts that the Berlin question arose because the Western powers violated agreements with Russia. Six lesser powers on tho council had appealed lo the Bij< Four to settle tho blockade by direct negotiation. Foreign Minister Juan A. Bra- nuiglia of Argentina, acting council chairman, asked tho four big powers today for details on the Aug. 30 agreement between Prime Minister Stalin and Western diplo- ruils and for thc instructions given he four military governors of Gcr- nany to implement thc accord. Under tho agreement, Russia was ,o lift thc blockade and the Wcst- :rn powers were to recognize the Soviet mark as the sole currency or Berlin. Thc American, British and French delegates said they were ifraid to answer Bramvuglia's questions at thc next council meeting on Berlin. Vishinsky then rose and declared the Argentine's questions were a "very skilled" maneuver to drag .he Soviet delegation into the Berlin debate. He said he would not "swallow :his bait." Vishinsky, who came to . the council with a lull staff o£ assistants and made doodles during the first part of the meeting, went on: "It is naive to believe the Soviet Union will swallow this bait, x x No gentlemen, we will not. We see no reason why the security council should burden itself with new details and material." Vishinsky contended last week the security council has no jurisdiction over thc Berlin question. He said a blockade does not exist He contended that only the foreign ministers' council may act on Ger-" man questions until a German peace treaty is signed. He repeated those arguments today. He recalled that "the Kremlin had c-r- • dcrcd him to take no part in debate on the Western power charges ' that the Russian action in Berlin r endangered peace and security.
