SECTION 1 THE COURIER. JOURNAL, LOUISVILLE, KY. SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 7, 1946. 17 Hubbard Files As G.O.P. Candidate For Congress; First to File Papers Is Veteran Of Botli Wars A veteran of both World Wars, Garland R. Hubbard, attorney, and the Republican nominee for Congress two years ago, yesterday filed with the secretary of state in Frankfort a formal declaration of his candidacy for the Republican nomination for Congress from Louisville and Jef ferso l County. Hubbard thus became the first to file in either party for the seat in the House Representatives now occupied by Emmet O'Neal, Democrat, who has indicated he will be a candidate for re-election. Others Expected to Run. By his action, Hubbard made a Republican primary election here August 3 practically certain. Others who have been consistently mentioned as probable starters are Aldermanic President C Paul Downard, who is being discussed as "organization candidate," and County Commissioner E. P. White, Jr., who declares he is in the race to stay. Also mentioned as possibilities are two other World War II veterans, John M. Robsion, Jr., son cf Kentucky's lone Republican C o n g r e s sman, Representative Robsion, Barbourville, and R. P. Dick" Watts, president of the Searcy Republican Club. Both, are attorneys. Counts on Veterans. It is doubtful if Hubbard will be given regular party organia-tion support, as represented by the leadership of Jouett Ross Todd, chairman of the Republican County Executive Committee, and Edward C. Black, organization chairman, so, if only one hn i V-. i i T.v Courier-Journal Photo, GARLAND R. HUBBARD. other candidate files against him and Hubbard remains in the race, that will make a primary necessary. In a statement issued before he went to Frankfort to file, Hubbard, a former president of the Louisville Bar Association, indicated he would depend strongly on the "veterans' vote" in his campaign, especially that of enlisted men. He pointed out that there are 57,000 veterans of World War II and 13,000 of World War I in Jefferson County, 65,-000 of whom were enlisted men. Served 27 Months. Hubbard, who served as a private in World War I and was discharged as a staff sergeant in World War II, declared: "These G.I.'s need, want and deserve representation in Congress. No one can fully appreciate or understand their hates and hopes, their doubts and desires, who hasn't lived with them. I feel that my 27 months' service as an enlisted man has intimately acquainted me with their problems and qualified me to work out satisfactory remedies." Two years ago Hubbard obtained organization support when the late Judge Arthur Hopkins withdrew rrom the primary race and won the Republican nomination but was defeated in the general election by O'Neal. He pointed out in his statement " that he was prevented by Army regulations from campaigning in his own behalf in the general election. For Full Production. Another part of his statement dealt with issues. He declared "the most urgent need ' of- the present is full production." This is no time, he said, "for strikes or slowdowns. Both labor and management must respect the public interest. The white-collar class salaried men, school teachers and " farmers have carried the heaviest tax burden ... I am closely associated with them , . . they must have real relief." Several of the 22 persons who signed Hubbard's declaration papers are members, with Hubbard, ' of the Republican County Executive Committee. The signers were Frank A. Ropke, William B. Furgersqn, Herman G. Jorris, Edgar B. Geiger, Joseph B. Ray, John S.'Petot, Edward J. Miller, Robert P. Bonnie, Robert J. Ball, Luther R. Stein, Gale DeCordre, Ben W. Cregor, James S. Shaw. A. J. Gianacakes, Z. Otis Single ton, j. j. Kavanagn, Charles E Keller, Frank E. Haddad, Jack Badesch, G. Dewey Detwiler, Bert A. wewnall and Lawrence F. Ber gamini. Dr. R. H.

It brought results. It stopped' the sale of at least one property." He added that members of a minority racial group had been ordered to leave the valley.

BEWILDERED mother cat looks askance as Miss Lavergne Taliaferro, 4619 S. Seventh, feeds a young rabbit which the cat adopted (thanks to vanilla extract)1 to add to her brood of three newborn kittens. The bunnies three of them are leading normal "kitten" lives under the care of the cat. Puzzled Cat Mothers 3 Bunnies With Own Brood A slightly confused cat at the home of S. W. Taliaferro, 4619. S. Seventh, is" playing mother these days -to a family of six half kittens and half rabbits. Kitty-mew as the Taliaferro family named her because her "meows" sound like, "mews" introduced her own proud trio of offspring to the world last Sunday. The following day, three newborn bunnies were discov ered in a field near by. The Taliaferros hit bn the Idea of doubling Kitty-mew's brood, but the moment mother cat spied the rabbits her ravenous feline appetite conquered her motherly instinct. She made a dive for the helpless bunnies and would have devoured them had not kinder hands intervened. Union Protests 'Antiunion Firing9 of Man Schools Deny Charge; Board lo Consider Case The Board of Education has received a letter protesting dismissal of a janitor as antiunion activity. Omer Carmichael, school superintendent, said the man "wasn't fired he eliminated himself by not showing up for work."' Herbert II. Monsky, attorney for the State, County and Municipal Workers (C.I.O.) Union, wrote that the janitor, James S. Mackay, 61, of 723 S. Sixth, was dismissed by William Bryant, chief custodian, "in direct opposition of the Board's ' announced policies pertaining to unionization of employees." Carmichael said Mackay was absent from his job "from Saturday to the Wednesday following," when a visit was made to his son's home in an effort to locate him. Monsky said Mackay was sick. The period of absence coincided with the street railway strike last month.. The protest will be handled "as a routine matter" at the next meeting of the board, said Sam D. Jones, business manager. Death News Causes Actress to Collapse New York, April 6 W Mrs. Mavis Miller, English actress, col lapsed at La Guardia Field upon her arrival from England today when told that her husband, former A.A.F. Capt. Donald Miller, had died In San Francisco Thursday from injuries received in an automobile accident. Known on the English stage as Mavis Villiers, Mrs. Miller had flown to this country after having been notified of the accident which occurred March 28. (0ix Phonograph Records WA 6435 . opposite brown hotel Y-T0 1 - Bunnies Are Fed Milk. The scent of vanilla extract turned the tables on nature, how ever. A drop on Kitty-mew s nose and another on each of the three bunnies did the trick. She sniffed suspectingly at the strange brownish "kittens" and decided they belonged to her. Since then, kittens and bunnies have received impartial motherly care from . the magnanimous mother whose arithmetic is a little rusty. She bathes the rabbits along with her own progeny every 2 or 3 hours. They find the food supply as readily accessible as do the kittens, although Miss La-verne Taliaferro supplements the bunnies' diet with milk fed through a medicine dropper. In contrast to the helpless kittens, whose eyes are not yet open, the young rabbits are full of life and frequently jump out of their basket-home to go wandering. When this happens Kitty-mew chases after them. But when she tries the regular method of picking one of them up she finds their neck stretches while bunny remains comfortably seated. The mystified mother then hovers over her adopted ward until someone lifts it back into the basket. What will happen when the young family gets a little older the Taliaferros aren't quite sure. Meanwhile, Kitty-mew and her dissimilar brood are a normal, congenial family.
