CIO unions to "extend every possible moral and financial aid to the oil workers." Meanwhile, negotiations continued between the Union and Shell 011 Co. at San Francisco, and with Standard Oil officials at El Scgun- do. Talks were also to be reopened at the Texas Company Plant here. Prospects for settlement of the strike, involving six major companies, "look more hopeful now than since it began," the governor's council was told at Sacramento by Paul Schar^enberg, stale director of industrial relations. Negotiations center ;<round the issue of rehiring strikers accused of violence and the heavy damage suits filed by companies againsl the union. "• A, O. Knight, head of the union, has said it is willing to accept, the 12 1-2 cent wage increase offeree by the companies. After 21 strikers were arrostcc 011 violence charges in the San trancisco area yesterday, Knight offered to provide squads of his own men as police aids in an effort to end outbreaks. Richmond, Calif., police turned down the offer. Violence against non-strikers and asserted damage at refineries led the oil companies to file damage suits against the union, CIO negotiators now want the suits dropped as a condition of settlement.

GOP Speridiri More Thors Democrats Washington, Oct. 26 —(UP) — Regular Republican campaign committees are spending about 25 per cent more than the Democrats in the ding-dong battle for control of the government, it was disclosed today. Official figures filed with the House clerk showed that between last Jan. 1 and Oct. IB, the Republican national committee spent $1,706,370. The Democratic national committee spent almost that much — $1,503,709 — up to Oct. 22. But the other Republican sena- ..:.., „.,._ . $1G4]65Q| torial committee spent compared with $32,263 Democrats. for the Despite the fact that they weren't spending so much, the Democrats were finding it difficult to .stay out of the red ink. The Democratic National committee, in fact, showed an actual book deficit of The list of Republican campaign conlributuours is liberally sprinkled with names famous in the business world. The biggest Democratic contributors, on the other hand are largely present or former officeholders. Contributors to the Republican national committee include members of the Mellon, Du Pont Ifock- efellwer. Pew, Vanderbilt. Chrysler Sloan Sinclair and other such families. They have given sums ranging from $1000 to $6,000 each since Sept. 1. Secretary of Treasury John W Snyder and members of his family have been the heaviest Democratc contributors. They have given a total of SB.OOO. Marshall Field Chicago publisher, and Mrs. Field aided the Democratic cause Lions Club to Help Blind With Seal Sale W. A. Horn, photographer, has been named to head the Hempstead campaign for funds in the second annual "Be Thankful You Can See" seal sale sponsored by more than 100 Arkansas Lions Clubs. Funds received in the campaign this year will be used to buy a permanent training center for the state's adult blind and to promote a visual aid program conducted the year around by local Lions Clubs. "Arkansas Lions Clubs will raise $50,000 this fall in their second annual "Be Thankful You Can See" seal sale, Mr. Horn said. This .is for the continued rehabilitation of the state's adult blind and sight conservation work among public school children." Mr. Horn said that even with the rising cost of living, supporters of the Lions sponsored Vocational Adjustment Center for the Adult Blind in Little Rock, are confident that a cooperative combination of the people, state agencies and private enterprise can't be licked, especially when this combination is teaching an unforgetable lesson in human relations. Since its opening in March 1947, the Adjustment Center has trained more than 50 blind men and women who arc now gainfully employed by themselves or others. This modest March opening came after the Little Rock Lions Clubs had obtained permission from the state Lions Convention which adopted the center as a statewide project. Members of the Little Rock clubs donated $4,000 while Little Rock citizens contributed an additional $6,000. With this fund, the Little Rock Club, as sponsoring agency, leased a suitable building at 2812 South Tyler Street and opened for training. In the fall of 1947, with a goal of 525,000, Lions Clubs throughout Arkansas went to their neighbors and fellow citizens and obtained $27,000 through the sale of seals. Seventy per cent of this fund was used by the center to buy training equipment, functional recreational supplies, enlarge dormitory facilities and obtain a competent staff of instructors. Thirty per cent of the fund was earmarked for local clubs for home town and county sight conservation work among the under-privileged. New glasses and medical attention were purchased from these funds. Nearly 100 clubs participated in this first annual campaign, Mr. Horn said, and more are expected to respond this year. "Eevry participating club," Mr. Horn said, and more are expected to respond this year. "Every participating club," Mr. Horn said, "has named a local chairman and an intensive campaign is being pushed. "I know that citizens of my community will assist members of the Hope Lions Club and the adult blind of Arkansas in reaching the $50,000. goal." Money obtained from the 70 per cent allotted to the Adjustment Center this year will be used to buy the building and grounds now being used. The spacious grounds surrounding the lar&c training con- to the tune of $4,500. Others who have contributed the Democratic chest includ mer Attorney General F to for- Hiddle. P,ov.

Already, one time garages and servant quarters are being utilized for workshops in woodworking, powered and manual metal craft, ceramics, plastic carving and loa- thercraft. The Center, Mr. Horn said, has been fortunate in obtaining as a full-time director of training, John S. "Happy Jack" Kenny, a former Shell Oil Executive who lost his sight more than a decade ago. Kenny is teaching his blind adult students with methods he learned the hardest way—on his own. The Center is operated by the Arkansas Enterprises for the Blind Inc., a non-profit private agency which places adult blind men and women in vending stands. Hugo Norvell, Little Rock, a past district Lion Governor, is chairman of the agency board. Ed Barry, Arkadelphia, also a former District Governor, is Chairman of the Stale Lions Committee. One of the guiding lights in organization and maintenance of the center is Uoy Kumpe, managing director of Arkansas Enterprises. Lions from all over Arkansas are members of the Board operating this agency. The State Welfare Department and the Vocational Rehabilitation Division of the State Education Department assist in approving Uirinees, furnishing full or part- time instructors and finding jobs or providing further training foi "graduates". The Veterans Administration assists blind veterans in entering the center. Present I'aeililes will allow about 45 men and women lo be trained annually. Training periods extend generally from four to six months, depending, of course, upon the response and ability of Hit trainees. Since inauguration of the center, representatives from nearly dozen out-of-stale agencies have inspected the facilities to get new ideas for their institutions. This is the first training center of its kind west of the Mississippi and the second in the nation.

King Broihqrs employ convoys. These are divided into sections depending upon the grades to be overcome by the motive . power. One convoy is used ;o haul the menagerie. Another carries the portable slage, cos- :umes, special scenery and elec- :rical apparatus used in this season's colossal spectacle. King Bros. Circus represents an investment of $500,000 with a daily expense of 33,270. Large as the initial sum may seem il is easily understood when elephants arc computed at S3.000 to $10.000 according to their ability to perform, and trained horse'&.at an average of $1,000 each. The" feeding of the menagerie and the peoole of this great circus is an item ol expense which only hundreds of dollars and perfect system can accomplish. The gigantic canvas hotel occupied by the . circus people includes the- largest kitchen in the world. A force of "20 chefs, cooks and waiters serve over 1,800 meals a day. The cooking is clone on huge ranges and in cauldrons and pots of giant proportion heated by steam. Since the majority of this season's performers come from foreign lands, interpreters are carried and the chefs see that special native dishes arc prepared for their benefit. All tolri there are 22 tents in Kingsvillo. and within its confines arc spoken no less than 18 languages and dialects. It is a city of man y tongues and endless niondcrs.

Drouth Cause of Fires Says State Forester Little Rock, Oct. 26 —-(At ^Arkansas Forester Fred Lang said^to- dny the current drouth had causeA* the most hazardous fire condition? in state forests in five years. He said that 764 acres of timber had been lost in 117 separate fires in the last three days. "For the past three weeks a condition has been developing which could spell destruction for great portions of our timber," Lang said. He added he dreaded to tnink "what would happen should a windy spell develop in the state." The forester said because oi at.- mospheric haze many towers of the forestry division had been vltfl- tually useless in detecting fires. Rangers now are paroling forest areas in radio-equipped planes..' Lang said the critical situation would continue until there is a .general rainfall. He urged farmers, hunters and others to use extreme caution to avoid setting fires accidentally. ; King George Reopens Parliament London, Oct. 26 — (JP) — King Jrcorge VI opened the new session of parliament amid ancient pomp today and called for the nationalization of Britain's steel industry. Britain's labor government already has nationalized such industries .as coal mining, transport and, aviation. Owners of holdings ; . ii'-. those industries were paid off in government securities giving about the same incomes. Thousands of spectators stood in a drizzling rain to watch the monarch and Queen Elizabeth drive in a state coach from Buckingham Palace to the Houses of Parliament to open the crucial session. Before dawn crowds gathered at the palace to get a close view of the household cavalry, in full dress uniform which escorted the royal couple. • • fr, On the throne in the House oi." Lords the king wore his crown and robes of state for the first time in 10 years. Foreshadowing a bitter fight on sled nationalization, which Winston Churchill's conservatives have opposed, the king announced; ...... "A measure will be laid before you to bring under public ownership those companies extensively engaged in the production of iron | ore, or of pig iron or steel, or in I shaping of steel by the rolling "prq- Icess." jj. ( That was all the king said on steel, but he spoke as the mouthpiece of the labor government and that means that his reference to the measure was a call for its enactment. His speech was written for him, according to custom, by his ministers. " ' He said also "you will be asked to consider proposals for making legal aid and advice more readily available to persons of small • .or moderate means." Some lawyers fear the latte.- proposal will amount to "nation;; lix.ing" the legal profession. UNDER AUTHORITY OF THE COCA-COtA COMPANY BY H OP EC OCA-COLA BOTTLING CO.
