Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn-—— Football Lough Magic Tonight Strange Finance Here's a story that seems to have been published—I'd give credit if I knew where—and it carries the best laugh of the football season: _ The home team was taking a bad beating when the quarterback, looking his boys over in the huddle round additional trouble—he had 12 men on the field. "What we'll do " he told 'cm, "is to go around end, and whichever one of you wants to quit can drop off as we go by the players' bench." The play went off perfectly. But in the next hucldl- the quarterback counted noses and sighed: "First we were one loni-' —now we're three short!" . Hervey Holt called me this morning for help on the "Layne the Master Magician" show which is being given at the high school auditorium at 8 o clock, tonight (Monday) as a hnnpfit f/-\»- IK,-, t<~; • .-,•> , WEATHER FORECAST Arkanyas: Partly cloudy today, tonight nnd Tuesday.

Go on out there tonight and be mystified. Personally, I have all magic shows figured out; The magician poses a good-looking girl on" side of the stage, and half the audience is so busy keeping an eye on the girl that the magician gets away with his trick before you catch on. Current bulletin of the Souther-1 Newspaper Publishers association points out an oddity in our government's finance abroad. Says SNPA: "In a recent column, George E. Sokolsky said the British while short on newsprint (paper) are long on idle facilities to manufacture newsprint. He points out that these facilities are not being uscu because the British do not choose to expend their dollars to import wood pulp. That is their choice and has notiung to do wuh us, except as they use American dollars obtained through ERP (now called EGA) which means that the American taxpayer provides the British with the wherewithal to purchase newsprint in competition with American newspapers which do not receive money irom their own government as a gift but have to earn it." In view of the fact that this page is printed on newsprint which cost delivered in full cars in Hope $104 a ton, against a prewar price 01 $41; and the current issue 01 Collier's magazine joins Saturday Evening Post with a price of 15c a copy (prewar price ac), our squawk mgiht be considered signi- licant. •K •¥• *fc 'Neutral' Nations Get Lesson On Russia's Use of UN Veto By JAMES THRASHER The latest Soviet veto has accomplished at least one usetul purpose. It has shown the so-caiied "neutral" governments in the UN, and particularly the six whose representatives framed the compromise resolution on Berlin, just what the United Slates has oeen up against in dealing wuh Russia. This is cold comfort, perhaps. But since Russia has seemed 10 set some slight store by favorable world opinion, the etiect of Mr, Vishinsky's veto on that opinion cannot be dismissed as entirely unimportant. The neutral resolution was a conciliatory document, and at tho same time practical. Us authors had bent over backward to avoid condemning the Soviet Union wi- the blockade. It offered a face- saying exit from the stubborn crisis. It gave to Russia, as America's Dr. Jessup pointed ou:, what, she claimed to want— the Soviet- zone mark as the sole Berlin currency, a foreign ministers' coiiK.-r- encc on Berlin and Germany, and oilier concessions. Some of the neutrals had considered the attitude of the United States and Britain toward Kussia too hostile. They apparently thought that the western powers had not used all the available diplomatic approaches in trying to settle other differences with the Soviets. It may be assumed that the mild and reasonable Berlin resolution was an example ol how they thought the job should be done. . But the result was the same. Russia would not lift the blockade. On the surface, the reason lor refusal was petty. But it must be clear now to all the UN members that the Soviets do not want settlement. They- obviously do not want it until they have tried harder to drive the three western nations out of Berlin. They do not want it until they see whether tneir agents can exploit the French goal strikes to wreck that country's economy and overthrow its government. They want no settlement until they try other means of defeating the Marshall Plan, or until they can set up a strong Communist militia in eastern Germany, and then withdraw their own troops wuh a great show of friendliness ana peaceable intentions. The Kremlin has its bets down on all these possibilities. It is gambling on the chance that it can win all most- bets and then settle wilh the losers on its own terms. Now even the neutrals' admirable desire for conciliation can scarcely conceal from them what the targets ot Russia's expansionist policies have seen for so lout;. The latest Soviet veto will pi'jbably win more neutral support i'jr the western cause in the UN. It snoiilu also make the neutrals more sympathetic to the west's firm r'cvn lution to defend itself in the eco- noaiic war that the Kremlin i.-. waging on a broad front, ynd with all the non-shooting weapon:, at its disposal. WOMAN FOUND DEAD Clarksvillc, Nov. 15 — i..-1'i Mrs. Laura Byington Crawioru. i>2, was found dead in the bathroom ot her home here today.

Paris, Nov. 15 —(/I 3 )— An informed source said today Secretary of State Marshall will answer for President Truman a United Nations leaders' appeal for a Berlin peace. U. N. Secretary-General Trygve Lie and Herbert V. Evatt of Australia, president of the general assembly, dispatched letters Saturday to the chief executives of the Big Four powers asking for four power talks to settle the Berlin crisis. The letters were sent to Mr. iruman, Prime Minister Stalin Prime Minister Clement Attlee of Britain and Premier Henri Queui'.lc of France. The source said Marshall will answer the Lic-Evatt peace letter as soon as he and the British and French ministers hold full consultations. Marshall, British Minister of State Hectlor McNeil and French I-orcign Secretary Robert Shuman are expected to meet tomorrow or at least exchange their views on tho letter at that time, the source H was indicated that every phase of the Americnn-British-French consultations will be relayed to President Truman. The source said, however, that Marshall, acting in his capacity as spokesman for the United States on foreign affairs, actually will answer the letter. The United Nations looked to Uir- American answer for a cue to the success or failure of the pcac cap- U. N. circles said the Lic-Evatt appeal was aimed at the American ^resident in the hope he would agree to meet the other three if he tell the moral wei^m 01 I he UN. was behind such a meeting. U. N. officials said privately they expected Stalin would agree quickly to the appeal. Dispatches Irom Moscow sum loreign diplomats in the Russian capital believe Stalin will accept. The U. N. informants said the big question is what reply Mr Truman will make to the letter. White House officials at Key West, Fla., where Mr. Truman now is vacationing, had no comment yesterday on the Lie-Evatt appeal. The latest word here from Unite House officials was that the president preferred trying to settle disputes through the U. N rather than through- independent talks. Because of Lie and Evatt's high positions in the U. N. and because th( iir .appeal was an invocation of a Mexican resolution approved recently by the U. N. general assembly, U. N. officials felt the president's objection to direct talks might be removed. The Mexican resolution' calls lor big power cooperation in the solution of world problems.

Nov. 15 UP) — Canada demanded today that the United Nations order Jews and Arabs to negotiate an immediate armistice in Palestine. Gen. A. G. L. McNaughton offered a new resolution to the security council following closely suggestions of acting Mediator Ralph Bunche. The Canadian draft calls the Palestine situation a (threat to peace. It said an armi- I slice is a necessary bridge between the broken truce and a final settlement. The resolution called on the Jews and Arabs to negotiate either directly or through Bunche to set up permanent armistice demarcation lines. It asked for a withdrawal and reduction of Israeli and Arab troops to maintain the armistice. Informed circles said the United States has shown great interest in the original Bunche proposal to replace the truce with an armistice. These sources said U. S. delegation members talked with Israeli and some Arab delegates. The gneeral assembly's 58-nation political committee speent its first half hour arguing whether to begin debate on political questions in Palestine. McNaughton, in the 11-nation security council, said he conferred with Belgium and France. He is known also to heve consulted the U. S. and Britain. The council invited representatives of Israel, Egypt and, Lebanon to the meet- o- The general assembly's 58-nation mittec also scheduled a meeting to act on a proposal by Herbert V. Evatt of Australia, the assembly president, to set up a special 58- nation euiiiifiittca to debate the year-old Palestine war. The report of the new American move came amidst strong Israeli protests against an order for Jewish troops to withdraw from Southern Negev. AFL Demands Quick of Labor Law i Cincinnati, Nov. 15 — (/P) — The American Federation of Labor Koynotcd the start of its 67th convention today with a demand for swift repeal of the Taft-Hartley act and the re-shaping of a strong .Uibor Department. •President William Green, who :ias set the tone of every convention sinc.e 1924, was scheduled to open this one. He was to be followed by Secretary of Labor Maurice J. Tobin. who has informal approval from the AFL for his Plans to rebuild the Labor Department. Sharp appropriations cuts and agency transfers by the Republican-controlled iiOth Congress have drastically reduced its size in the past two years. The 75-year-old Green, who was -ighl years old when the AFL was formed in 1881, was expected to claim fov the federation a large share of credit for President Truman's re-election. iThe AFL entered a political league in the 1948 campaign for the first time in its history. The league'never offered to back Mr Truman, but 1(j per cent of its backers worked for a Democratic victory, AFL leaders said. In the congressional contests, the AFL—like all the other labor political organizations — campaigned to beat lawmakers who voted for the Tan-Hartley act. On the eve of the convention opening, the AFL council voted to demand outright repeal of the act, now that the Democratic party controls both houses of Congress. As tho basis for a new law which the labor organization would regard as fair to both employers and workers, the AFL leadership proposed a quick return to the Wagner Act. The Wagner Labor Relations Act, adopted in 1935, was amended by the Taft-Hartlcy act, passed over presidential veto last year The labor leaders would build on that on the basis of experience with the 17-month old Taft-Hartley act. Green told newsmen tho council favored repeal by March 1 regardless of whether there was any labor statute to take its place. However, other members of the policy-making group explained Green must have misunderstood the action. A gap between repeal of the •T-alt-Hartley act and passage of another law would leave a serious "hiatus" when the nation would be without a National Labor Relations Board, a Federal Mediation Service or other agencies to handle disputes outside the railroad industry. The AFL leaders hastened to they Forrestol Tells Trumcm He Can't- Serve in Cabinet Berlin, Nov. 15 —(/P)— U. S. Secretary of Defense James v. Forrestal said yesterday he had already notified President Truman he would not be able to serve "through his entire administration of the next four years." 'The White House made no comment on Forrestal's statement.) Forrcstal talked with reporters at Ternplehof airfield just before departing for Frankfurt and Paris. He is completing a hurried Euro pcan tour to consult with government heads on western Europe's military defense. Forrestal estimated the airlift supplying blockaded Berlin was :osting the American taxpayer at Lhe rate of $100.000.000 a year. But. 10 added, it's a "good inv or peace." Vets Can Bids on Balance The local Surplus Land Disposal office managed by Jerome Smith, today announced that Tuesday, November 16, will start a veterans priority period in which bids will be taken on unpurchased land in the Southwestern Proving Ground area. Mr. Smith 'said there was some 6,900 acres not purchased by former owners that is available to veterans under the priority system. Letters now in the mail list the tracts and cost of each. Bids will be taken at the land office in Hope City Hall through .December 1. The office has just completed sale of some 35,000 acres to former owners.

Wallace Decides to Stay With Proqress«.vss By HAL BOYLE New York — i.'l'i — The battle of Tunisia, combat forge of the mod ern American army, is six years and a world away. Now in November it seems far of!' and lung ago indeed. The issues fought out in the six- month campaign in that patch of North African whcatland and desert now are almost forgotten in the away. But the old professional soldiers knew better. "We'll be lucky if it's all over by 19-17," said a colonel who had fought in the first world war. And then the army ran into its first real foreign mud — and its first real German.s. The Germans came by ship and plane to Tunis. They came with faster planes and heavier tanks than the Allies had. .- • . . - ' -•-•••••»•->«.-< 11 t I U O 1 1 1 [I ! 1 V t A i,, i . rienus in Hope, having been pasto'r "" VUllla( -' here lor -1 years of the First Methodist church and many will want ,,„ , . ,. lo hear him auain HiUnv pel mancnliy to Ihe Progres today but his runnin Pot-luck supper t h L- .niched his political Chicago.

CUTTER Key West, Fla., Nov. ,„ — * ui -.. —President Truman's top political advisers left -this post-election retreat today after a visit described as "00 per cent vacation and 10 percent talk." Vice President-elect Alben W. Barkley. Democratic Chairman J. Howard McGrath and Lesne L. Biffle, director of the Senate democratic policy comniittec, planned to drive first to Miami. They will return to Washington about Wednesday. There were no indications that their stay with the president had produced any concrete picture of what the next Truman administration will be like. Friends of the president thought it was a good bet that nothing would be decided finally before his two-week vacation at this Florida naval base ends next weekend. A second group of visitors, due today and tomorrow, includes Gov Mon C. Wallgren of Washington and three members of the White House secretariat, David K. Nilca Matthew J. Connelly and Charles G, Ross. Wallgren an old Senate friend of the president, probably will be offered some high adVninistrative job in the government. He was defeated for re-election as governor. His name has been mentioned in connection with Ihe post of interior secretary.

Nanking, Nov. iu —vn — -iv-ju threats to Nanking increased today as Communists surged Southward from the Suchow area. A mounting breakup of national forces along the outer approaches f.o the capital was reflected in reports from the war nron. ar. BUI, Neutral reports said Suchow was 'estinent (isolated. Others had a mechanized force fighting its way to the relief of trapped government troops east of the city. Communist forces reached Suh- sicn, 135 miles northwest of Nank- .ng. One report said the town was captured by the Reds. The railroad, connecting Pukow, across the Yangtze from Nanking, and Suchow, had been cut in several places. Government reinforcements moving up from N-.nking were reported stranded in spots along the line. There were no reports from Suchow itself. Charles Hayes of Salem, Mass., pilot of a plane that flew out 25 Ci'tholic missionaries to Shanghai, said there were signs of heavy fighting near the Suchow airport, five miles east .of the city. On tho political front "president Chiang Kai-shek and top leaders met in Nanking to discuss a protest lo the United Nations against alleged Russian aid to the Reds. Reliable sources said no decision was reached but indicated a possi ble government statement later. Talk ot a "war cabinet" without Chiang died down. In a desperate effort to save the Suchow situation, the government reportedly had thrown some of the weary troops evacuated from the manchurian port ot Hulatao into the battle. Also, three government divisions were landed at Lionyun- kang, Eastern terminus of the Lunghai railroad. They started a diversionary westward move. Elsewhere there was pews of two government setbacks in Northwest operations and the arrival of American marines for guard duty in Tientsin. A small detachment of leathernecks was flown from Tsingtao, U. S. navy base, to protect the American consulate and help evacuate Americans from North China. Nationalist soldiers looted Tientsin food shops Thursday. The whole area faces Communist occupation if the Reds win out a Suchow. (The Communist radio, heard by the Associated Press in San Francisco, declared "only abqut one more year of the revolutionary war will be required fundamentally to overthrow the Kuomintang rule and establish a peaceful Democratic and united new China.") More than 250 foreign residents, about half of them Americans, were due to sail at dawn for Shanghai aboard a converted American destroyer. In Shanghai they will board homeward-bound ships as facilities become available. Paris.
