Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alsx. H. Washburn The Pigeon Is Not Without Friends Pigeons, like dogs, hang around the habitat of man; and, while their numbers become exasperating at times, every city feels J^hac as long as some pigeons are 'around all's well with tne world. Mr. Pigeon represents a compromise between the touch of wild me, penetrating deep into the city, and our larm memory ol domesticated fowls. For instance, one moment your pigeon is wheeling gracefully down nls aerial elevator to a two-point landing—• and the next moment lie is insolently walking . . . not hopping or Hying . . . out of tne way 01 an automobile wliile he canvasses the j*paved street for food morsels that *f'have dropped from grocery pac-K- ages. 00 Mr. Pigeon is ever in the public eye and close to tiie public heart. And when an unlucky city .mayor threatens, as mayors sometimes do, to get rid ot tne pigeons he provokes a letter like the following which a San Francisco citizen wrote to the newspapers: "Editor: The poor little pigeons, alas! They keqp the city hall and Union Square looking mussy, belt their efforts are so little compared (Jjwith the disorder of other inhabitants of San Francisco. Papers tossed on the sidewalk, candy wrappings, cigarette wrappings an blowaig '»n the wind.. San Francisco is a beautiful city as you approach from the bridges, but as you get close the beauty disappears in uic clutter. Even if there were adequate receptacles for waste it would take much time and trouble to train San Franciscans to use them. They have been so slack so long, more's the pity." :,„ But like everything else, the % solution of tho pigeon promem is control. When you leave moderation and go to excess there is danger of drastic action. 1 know. For when I was a boy I climbed out on the roof of a city house and captured in the eaves three pigeon chicks—and took them out to the farm where we lived each Summer. But timo wont by, the flock grew to 00-odd pigeons—and there came a day when father, having freshly painted the barn, looked thoughtfully at the pigeons.

PRICE 5c COPY Borryinore to Y/alk Paris, Oct. 30 — (UP)— The French government today suspended Raymond Tourncmainc, Communist administrator of nationalized French railroads, in what reliable reports said WPS the start of a purge in the civil service and armed forces. Tourncmainc, secretary general of the Communist railroad workers union, had issued a call to union members to block coal trains at French frontiers. Reliable reports said Communists would be purged from all government services as a result of the 27-clay-old coal strike, which the government charged was launched by the Moscow-controlled Communist party to sabotage the Marshall plan in France. Minister of Justice Andrei Marie was reported to have been instructed by the cabinet o£ Premier Henri Quo.uille to draft a bill prohibiting civil servants from membership in the Communist party. Troops and security guards meanwhile seized 10 more struck coa! pits in northern France without, resistance and dispatched 400 Senegalese troops to Rouen to unload 12 coal ships carrying 26,000 tons. Dock strikers have refused to unload the ship, but they did not attempt to interfere with the Scn- gaiee. At Marseille, some 5,000 passengers to North Africa, Corsica, the Middle East and South America were stranded by a sudden strike of merchant seamen. The Government reported that lai.ae numbers of miners have started returning to mines seized by troops but that fresh strikes threatened railroad and metal industries in addition to the dock and seamen strikes. ;£. * f;for hanging around a freshly painted barn wouldn't, have happened had they remained but three. •* * -X Britain Should Take the Lead In Forming European Union By JAMES THRASHER The British government, whose Foreign Minister officially proposed a Western Union in Europe, now seems to approach such a federation of states with a caution that resembles reluctance. This ';Scems to be the chic.t reason why that sensible and necessary measure is getting practically nowhere. Several reasons arc offered for the British hesitation. For one thing, Winston Churchill is an ardent supporter of the Western Union idea, which he might claim to have launched unofficially. But the British don't seem to feel as strongly about bi-partisan foreign policy as we do. Also there appears to be some difference in official thinking about where Britain's real future lies, in Europe or in the British Commonwealth. There are some who feel that if Britain isn't an empire she isn't anything, and that the future should be built in the sterling area. with its preferential trade advantages. .Then. it is said, the British government thinks that some prospective members of the Western Union would be liabilities, and that others would not be inclined to co- —NEA Tclephoto Screen Star Lionel Barrymore, right, who has been confined to a wheel chair for the past ten years, will be walking again in the next few months, even without crutches if he reduces another twenty pounds.

He takes his case to the people of his native Missouri tonight in a final major political talk at St. Lcuis. Then he 'goes to his big, white-frame home on North Delaware street in Independence to await the nation's verdict. There will be the traditional get- out-thc-vote talk from his home Monday, but tonight is the windup of the campaign. The president predicted a turnout of 60,000,000 voters next Tuesday in a talk at a Democratic rally in New York City last night. A voice in the Queens Hall shouted: "And there'll be fifty million of them for Truman." The president, chuckled loudly.

Hot Springs— Passing and running with the greatest of ease Hope's high flying Bobcats rolled up a 41-0 score over the Hot Springs Trojans last night to rack up their eighth win of the season. It was the second Big Six team that Hope has knocked off this year. • Practically every man on Coach Toilet's squad saw action and even with the second team in the score continued to pile up. Hot Springs fielded a tall, rangy team and its inexperience was noticeable. The Trojans ncA'or seriously threatened. As in most games this season, Fullback Tommy Britt and Buddy Sutton did most of the ground gaining but the speedsters only scored one touchdown each. Sutlon was injured shortly before the half and did not return to the lineup. He suffered a hip injury, seriousness of which cannot be immediately determined, but is not believed bad enough to keep him out of the lineup. Button's departure from the game left the running chores mostly to Britt who put on a fine exhibition for the tans, especially on punt returns. All together the Cats scored three times on passes, once on an intercepted pass which Buarden carried over, and twice on the ground. Bobby Joe Lee kicked five of six extra points. Actually the game was little more than a workout for the Bobcats and the stadium was packed, mostly with Hope fans. Perhaps the best exhibition of the night was turned in by the Hope High School Band which stole the show from Spa hum-looters. The halllime marching and danc- p ing of the majorettes and the Jazz j music delighted the crowd. The | band know it was good and so did everybody else. Incidentally it was homecoming for the Trojans and coronation ceremonies s'aw Miss Barbara Bag- gcll crowned uuee,i for Hot Springs and Miss Molly Sue Brandt, queen for Hope. The Moore-Harris American Legion Post No. 279, Blevins, Arkan sas met October 27 in the Blevins High School auditorium and elected officers and appointed committees for 1948-49. The following officers were elected and installed: Robert A. Cooper. Commander; M. p. Tippitt, Vice-Commander: Austin W. Hendrix, Adjutant and Finance Officer; Warner Curtis, Sergeant of Arms; John Smith, Historian; Chas. L. Willard, Chaplain. New committee chairmen were appointed by the new commander, as follows: Objectives, Herman Rhodes; Burial For Veterans, Ira W. Hendrix; Preparation for Military Funerals, Wilbur Folsom. A talk was given by Mr. Cooper on the importance of being an Aincricon Legionnaire. and his plans for the year's work. New officers were installed by the past Post Commander, Ira W. Hendrix. Much praise and appreciation should be given Mr. Hendrix for tho growth of this post that was organized last year with 31 charter members and now has a total of 9U members. In turn Mr. Hendrix wishes to ! thank each member of the Post and Auxiliary for his untiring effort, hard work, and endless cooperation in making the Post a success. .aling $308,748 have already been "ilc;l for consideration by the 1949 egislature and that 50 more arc jeing processed. He says more :han 400 claims will probably be iilecl before the March 15th dead- lino. The last legislature considered 332 claims totaling $882,938; some S318,5il3 of which was actually paid out by the state board of fiscal control. Under the law the legislature appropriates enough to cover all claims. The fiscal control board decides whether or not they are valid, and if so, how much should be allowed. In tho past, cries of politics have resounded about board proceedings and even now a special legislative council committee is considering possible law changes governing claims against Arkansas. Friday said that more than 50 per cent of the claims are for refunds of taxes erroneously paid or paid under some statute later invalidated by tho courts. Such funds generally receive approval of the slate revenue department, j A new series of claims arose this year following the malaria program of Ihe State Health department. At. least ten Eastern Arkan- sa? residents contend that D-D-T spray used by the department damaged naint in their houses. Friday said that health officials have ad- niltcd liability in some instances. The largest single bill on file is against tho State Highway depart- ! mont. Tho N. W. Newell Construe-! Lion company of Little Rock maintains that a change in plans on Ihe Pratlsville-Shcridan road in 1940 caused it to lose $51,689 on a construction contract. One of the newer claims filed wag by Beulah B. Johnson of Little Rock. Mrs. Johnson alleges that she was injured Feb. 28, 1947 when she slipped on a freshly-waxed floor in tho Education department in thp statchouse. She is asking for $10.225. Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Me Arthur PJ.ie Bluff are asking SO,580 to replace a house allegedly burned by an escaped inmate of the Arkansas Bovs Industrial School at Pine Bluff. McArthur said the youth admitted that he broke into the empty house last May 18, cooked his breakfast and left the stove burning when ho left. Similar claims wore filed bv Nannie Browning of DcWill and Mrs. Pcag- gy Jones of Traskwood. Mrs. Browning alleged that her husband, N. L. Browning was killed by James Yatos, an escaped convict, on Sept. 13, 1944. She is ask ing damages totaling $10,000. Mrs Jones is asking S16.G40 for injuries when an escaped convict figured in a two-car accident on Dec. 20, 104J5. "that no voter in Michigan is disenfranchised by a technicality." Alger said he would confer immediately with Attorney-General Eugene F. Black to determine what can be done to get the Democratic presidential electors on the ballot. Peru President Ousted, Military Takes Over Lima. Peru, Oct. 30 — (UP) President Jose Luis Bustamenle was deposed and banished into exile today by rightwing military junta which seized virtually all of Peru in three days with the help of the Lima army garrison. The powerful Lima garrison joined Brig. Gen. Manuel Odria's three-day revolt late yesterday after refusing Bustamcnte's orders to march against the provisional rebel capital of Arequipa, SOO miles south of Lima. The army established a military junta to govern the country temporarily and named Gen. Zenon Noriega commander of the second army division in Lima, as provisional president. Bustamentc refused orders to resign. Two army officers called at the palace at 9 p. m. and placed lim aboard a plane to carry him nto exile in Argentina. The plane ook off at 1 a. m. today. Reports reaching here later said hat Bustamcnte's plane made its irst stop at Anlofagasta, Chile, on the way to Buenos Aires. Bpstcmente was elected in 1945 :>y the Democratic national front, i coalition of liberals and leftists, !or a six-year term ending July 28, 1951. The army revolt was commanders. launched by They charged Hays Joins the Fight on Oleo CoJering Washington,' Ot. 3(1 — U'i —Rep. Hays (D-Arki has joined Son. Fillbright (D-ArlO in opposing a dairy interest proposal to ban the sale of colored oleomargarine. Tho dairy groups have offered to support removal of oleo taxes it sale of the colored product is- banned. Hays said if the butler producers could prevent oleomargarine from being colored yellow, lard producers would have the right to prevent vegetable shortening from being colored while. that Bustamentc was too lenient with leaders of the Lc.UH 1 , Apra party who staged 'a bloody' but short-lived revolt Oct. 3 in Callao. The swing of the Lima garrison to the side of the rebels apparently was carried out without bloodshed. There was no shooting of signs of violence and .residents of the cily went about their business as usual. The revolt broke out Wednesday when five regiments in Arequipa under Gen. Odria seized the city and called on other army units to join in unseating the Bustamenle government. Uncomfirmcd reports said only the garrisons at Trujillo and Chiclayo in Northern Peru had refused to join the revolt. The two cities long have been strongholds of the Apra party, which was outlawed after its unsuccessful rebellion earlier their month. Gen. Odria broadcast a message to the nation from Arequipa last night and it was reported he would arrive in Lima today to lake over the government. In his speech Odria promised to nold elections soon. He charged the Bustamenle regime had permitted lawlessness, lie said Ihe new regime would protect the class and encourage agriculture and other national industries. Washington, Oct. 30— (UP)—, High-ranking government officials were reported today to be considering the evacuation of American naval forces from the Communist- threatened Chinese port of Tsing- tao. Authoritative defense sources said Lt. Gen. Albert C. Wodcmey- cr, the army's top expert on China, is reviewing the plight of Gencralisimo Chiang Kai-Shek's armies with naval officers. The American-trained Chinese nationalist troops have been retreating from Manchuria, leaving a large portion of that territory in Communist hands. Areas around Tsmgtao, a port on the Yellow Sea north of Shanghai, also have been infiltrated by Communists. Linking of these rebels with the Communist troops from the North would virtually assure evacuation of the Americans, informed sources said. The United States has military missions advising the nationalist forces, and Congress has appropriated $125,000,000 for military aid to China. The navy has three cruisers and 12 destroyers in the Tsingtap area, navy officers said. The ships are assigned to Task Force 3!!—the Asiatic fleet. The navy has been training Chinese naval crows at Tsingtao for three years. Naval spokesmen declined to comment on a possible withdrawal from Tsingtao. Their silence concerning the nu ber of sailcros and marines assigned to the, base was interpreted here as an indication that the contingents may have been reduced. Marine forces at Tsingtao totalled 3.470 on Aug. 30, the last official count made pub lie. Economic cooperation adminis tration officials said that agency has only small quantities of whoa! and petroleum whicy might have to be abandoned it the Tsingtao base were evacuated. Meanwhile, William C. Bullet former ambassador to Russia and a critic of the administration's China policy, prepared to leave Nov. 9 for China to investigate "all phases" of the situation. He will serve as special consultant to the Republican-controlled congression- al"wtttchdog" * tfoin.iYiiitoe- on foreign aid. BuiJU's mission was regarded by some observers as laying the groundwork for a major shift in U. S. policy toward China if Gov. Thomas E. Dcwcy wins the election. Bullit, an old-line Democrat who broke with President Truman earlier this week, has expressed the belief that tho. administration has follovycd a "too little and too late" policy toward aiding Chiang Kai-Shek.

Communists Unchecked in Manchuria Push By HAROLD K. MILKS Nanking, Oct. 30 — (/PI—Commu- ist troops swooped on Mukden to- ay and either wrested that great st Manchurian city from the Chiese government or were prepared to do so at their leisure. Usually reliable sources said the lecls had won complete control of he city. Other equally believable sources lute tonight said they had closely ringed the city but had not \illy completed its occupation. These last accounts, staled the ast group of government officials, lad fled at 3 p. m. in automobiles, ,n a desperate effort to break through the Communist circle. They said no authority whatever remained in Mukden and the en- tiro city was in "thc.jgreatest confusion." Foreigners left in , Mukden included U. S. Consul General Angus Ward and his wife, consulate Secretary Mary Eleanor Baden ot' Dysart, Iowa: Administrative Officer Halph Kehbrg of Rochester, N. Y. and some other members ot the American and other foreign consular staffs. The American consulate was reported well' "'Syfi.iiH.ed with food under guarr" j v'~ h !t •" £°'> 'iprl.

Their objective way lot clear in Nanking but it was selievcd they were trying to reach one of two evacuation ports in Manchuria—Yingltow and Hulutao, both of thc'guU of Chihli and about 100 miles south of Mukden. Sources here upnsHercd it wu... likely 'that "many" of "the lo'O.OOO 'na.'-", tionalist troops managed to escape ' Red forces who held the corridor Io Chinhsien, 125 miles south ot Vlukden. Large forces on both sides have been engaged in a see-saw battle for the past 72 hours in the Mukden area. More than 400,000 men were reported committed to battle. The national government has oeen plagued with large scale d£~ sertions of troops in past months. It was considered likely some ot those in 12 divisions the Communist said they captured near Mukden earlier this week deserted. Chiang Kai-Shek himself flew here late in the day from his field, headquarters at Pieplng, where he had been directing the north operations since Oct. 15. His arrival was considered by observers to mean drastic developments had sent him rushing back, here. Whai is smoi. on a platter? Defintioi! of a pealing riflor.
