PRICE 5c COPY Nanking, Nov. 1 —(/in—President Chiang Kai-shek, his Manchurian armies crumbling and Mukden lost, told the Kuomintang central political committee today that China "must accept the lessons of defeating by Communists and fight on." There was no hint of surrender from the weary Chinese leader, whose government has been shaken to its foundation by the wholesale defeats of his troops in the last three weeks. In his first official appearance since his return from two weeks in the north where the cream of his armies were destroyed or went over to the Reds, Chiang declared: "We have had reverses in the Northeast (Manchuria) but the Communists are not yet in a position to direclly menace North China." American authorities meanwhile instructed U. S. citizens to prepare tc leave North China. Authoritative sources here said the Communists had occupied Mukden completely at 3 p. m. (a a. m. CST) arid that the last government officials fled from there three days ago. The government has had no radio contact with Mukden since 6 p. m. Sunday (4 a. m.

Arkansas to Washington, Nov. 1 —(UP) — Diplomatic officials were searching despeartely today for some way to prevent the explosion of a "time bomb" in the strategic Middle East. The "bomb" was made up of Arab refugees from the fighting in Palestine. With winter com- weekend and clouds continued roll- 2.77 Inches of Rain Over the Weekend That long-awaited rain came this In his full-dress labor speecli at j Pittsburgh, Governor Dcwey presented a list of objectives with this preface; "These are some of the things we are determined to achieve." Among them were a higher minimum wage, extended social security with larger benefits, and end of the housing log jam to provide "decent houses" at "reasonable costs," and prices that "do not steal food and clothing . . . from American families." ' •••Mr. Dewey's "we" obviously referred to a new administration in tvent of a GOP victory. It had to Include a Republican Congress, since all the above objectives are matters for legislation. Thus the t ."we" really implied lhat Mr. Dewey was stating a Republican national policy. Position and tradition allow Mr. Dcwey or any other presidential 'candidate to make such statements. The New York governor is the titular, head of his party. And in the , unreal atmosphere of a presidential '.'< campaign, it is ca.sy for voters to persuade themselves that the head of the tickel speaks for a united party. Actually the situation is considerably different. Tho Republicans may look united in comparison to the Democrats, with their defections lo Ihe right and left this year. But there was a GOP group in the 80th Congress to whom these Dewey objectives are an anathema. .. Largely because of this group , the, 80th Congress did not raise the minimum wage or extend social security or pass a housing bill. It was they who pressed hard or lifting price controls, though it was Mr. Truman's job to end them. Maybe the iiOth Congress turned down these measures partly because they had originated wHh a Democratic administration, o: had its support. Yet a number ef conservative Democrats joined conservative Republicans in defeating the measures. There is little reason lo believe lhat the same measures \yould be any more popular with either group if a Republican president were pushing them. Oddly enough these domestic objectives (officially bipartisan in aim, if not in method) reflect the views of many Republican congressmen, particularly in the Senate. But they clash with the conservative viewpoint ot others who. through seniority, control some of the key congressional committees. In the event of a Republican victory, then, there will be an inter- Continued on Page Three Blevins Youth Arizona Wreck Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Honea of Blevins received word yesterday 1hat their son.

Officials fear that mass starvation would set off a strong wave of anti-American feeling among the Arabs, and give Communist agents their biggest break in the Middle West since the "cold war" began. The. Arab nations to which the refugees fled do not have the necessary funds to take care of them, officials said.

Officials said Ihe A;-a~bs>'look to the United States to back up its claim of "humanilarianism" by seeing lo it that the refugees do not perish this winter. The big-hitch is that this government does not have a single penny it can spend for Arab refugee relief. At -the State Department's request, government legal experts have searched in vain for authority to spend funds for that purpose without specific congressional approval.

The Democrat who holds the White House lease and the Republican who holds high hope of breaking it planned only the customary get out and vole appeals for tonight's windup to a long and exhausting campaign. Depending on how those pleas are heeded—and the weather — upwards of 50,000,000 citizens will visit the polls. They will decide, among other tilings, which party will control the next Congress — and especially the Senate. But for all the oratory, energy and dollars expended in trying to sway the world's greatest court of public opinion, only time can tell whether the winner and his party will relish victory through each of the next four years. The cold war in Europe and the hot war in China underscore the unfinished task of the peacemakers. At home high prices leave unanswered whether the current boom will turn into a bust.

The death list was-revised downward by one. The town's department of health first reported Tus- tine Polchak the 20th victim of a cardiac-asthmatic condition that took the lives of the others.

Leo Robins, who introduced Coach Tollett, told the boys the fans generally believed their condition, and unity were the two main factors in their success so far.

Professor Brown, the speaker, talked on Ihe need for Ihe farmers of today to do a better job than their forefathers did. In doing so, he pointed out how his father depleted his soil, destroyed the natural resources which were helpful in retaining the fertility of the farm land. "You farmers have u greal re- sponsibilily on your shoulders if agriculture will continue to be carried out at a high level tomorrow for our youth. You must follow these practices that tend to build our soil year after year; protect our forest land and retain our rapid depleting sources of lumber." Professor Brown pointed out how essential it was for fanners to supply the family with the needed food and feedstuff to meet its requirements. The winners oi this year's Livc- Al-Home contest were announced. In the Landowners' division for the second time in the county, Dave- and Lurenda Evans of teminett were declared first place winners, George and Minnie Kich.ardson of Iron Springs, second place; Jake and Sarah llenegan of Greenhill, third, and in the Tenant division, Cordell Wiliamsoii of Anlioch, first; Juthi'u and lUui-1 While of SI.
