Experts tell us if we want to get back into the China poker game it will take 5 billions. My *ygue.s& is 5 billions won't assure success; and I estimate, further, that Amcriia isn't going to risk any major fraction of 5 billions.

It has bnen prayed for by the pious and promised by the politicians for so long , .._.-...... ....been worn tnin to the point oi losing their meaning. Yet the desire for peace and plenty is a fundamental human aspiration. Without these two blessings a great deal of what we '.viuiw as civilization would not be possible. Culture, higher learning, material progress and many other ingredients of human happiness are ours only when we are freed from fear and want and exhausting drudgery. Peace and plenty, like a lot of other blessings, must be worked for as well as prayed for. In the last year the people of this country have worked hard for both. They have been aided in their work by good fortune. And even though peace is not as secure as we would wish, another bountiful harvest has assured us of the plenty which can be a powerful instrument in the quest for peace. The traditional American feast thai we celebrate today is a symbol of our bounty. We can eal and , eat we'll, and we can also share. ' And by sharing we can help bring to others less fortunate that freedom from want and from fear that helps to dispel the discontent which breeds confusion and war. So. on this Thanksgiving Day, let us humbly and sincerely give thanks for peace and plenty. The neutrals will sift through j-.i^.t.

Juan A. Bramuglia of Argentina president of the security council for November, submitted the questionnaires to the four powers and then turned the replies over to the other six members for study. The neutrals are Argentina, Belgium Canada, China, Colombia and McGrath May Resign as Washington, Nov. 24 —fUP) — Administration sources said today Sen. J. Howard McGrath may resign soon as chairman of the Democratic National committee. The Rhode Islander, it was said, feels his senatorial duties in the new Democratic-controlled Con- cress will make it difficult for him to carry on simultaneously as head of the national commitgee. If McGrath does quit. some quarters believe President Truman will offer the post to Oscar Ewing, now federal security administrator. Ewing, a native of Greensburg, Ind., has long been active in Dem ocratic party, politics. He served as assistanl chairman of Ihe nalional committee from August, 1940 to May, 1942 and was one of Mr. Truman's most ardent backers in the recent campaign. Ewing also is understood to be in line for a cabinet post in Mr. Tru- man-'-s-ncw-a-d-mrrristratiCTn-.- Mr. Truman will ask Congress in January lo create a new Department of Public Health and Welfare. Sources close to the While House believe Ewing has the inside track to head that agency if Congress sets it up. There would be nothing to prevent Ewing from holding down both a cabinet post and the national chairmanship. In past years the national chairman usually has been made postmaster general. McGrath has been national Democratic chairman since October, 1947 when Mr. Truman picked him to succeed Robert E. Hanno- gan. The Rhode Island lawmaker has been active in politics for 20 years and has served in a wide variety of elective jobs, ranging from city so licitor of Central Falls, R. I., to i governor of that state. He was elected to Ihe Senate in 194G. China Problem Dy JOHN M. HIGHTOWE R Washington, Nov. 24 — (7P( — President Truman and Secretary of Slate Marshall today held their yec'.-nd foreign affairs conference ot the week. The Chinese crisis was believed lo be foremost among the problems up for early decision. ; Even as Marshall entered the White IIou.se at )j:45 a. in., Central Standard Time, the press office announced that Mr. Truman would receive Chinese ambassador Wellington Koo later in the day. < 11:31) a. m. CST) Marshall talked with Mr. Tru- for 25 minutes. He declined Army Choosing Draftees Carefully army apnarenlly is picking and choosing its draftees more care- Syria. A United Nations official said late today that Bramuglia, without explaining, had decided not to publish the replies today. Argentine sources said earlier the Soviet and Western answers would be made public at 5 p. m. (10 a. rn. CST) today. The official said the answers probably will be made available Thursday morning. Because currency is one of the chief causes of friction between the Western powers and Russia in Berlin, Bramuglia is seeking to get at the root of the discord by solving the money problem. The United States, Britain and France introduced their Western German currency in the Western sectors of Berlin last spring. Soon afterward, in June, Russia began its blockade of the capital city by halting all transportation ex'cept air traffic between Berlin and the Western occupation zones. Russia has refused to lift the blockade until the Western powers accept Soviet currency as the only medium of exchange in all four sectors of the city. The Western powers, on the other hand, have refused to negotiate the currency or other questions until the blockade is lifted. Despite the neutrals' vigorous new approach to the Berlin dispute Western sources predicted gloomily that this latest effort would collapse. Living Cost Dip Could Ease Control Demand By STERLIN F. GREEN Washington, Nov. 25 — (/P) —A slight but welcome dip in living :osts raised the possibility today :hat President Truman might tone down his demand for "standby" )ricc control and rationing powers when Congress meets in January. Edwin G. Nourse, chairman of .he president's council of economic advisers, said a continued ebb in prices, washing out the need for drastic controls, would be "swell." But he didn't predict that would iiappcn. 'It would be like seeing a fever chart go down, 1 ' Nourse told a reporter, "but we aren't drawing any conclusions yet." His comment came after the Bu rcau of Labor statistics reported last night that its cost-of-Hving index for October showed a dip of one half of one per cent. This was the first drop in seven months for the index as a whole. Another top government fiscal official said privately he believes inflationary forces still have the upper hand. And Chester Bowles, one-time boss of OPA and governor-elect of Connecticut, said after a White House visit that Congress "unquestionably" will act against inflation. Behind all the guesswork lay the big question of what will happen overseas—how much more money will have to go for foreign aid and national defense. Some influential White House ad visers are known to feel thai any substantial rise over Mr. Truman's present $15,000,000,000 ceiling on next year's military outlays could set the inflation spiral whirling again.

Nov. 24 (ff>) — General Douglas MacArthur today denied clemency for Japan's 25 top war criminals and ordered the execution of Hideki Tojo and six others who dreamed of conquest but lost an empire. As sole reviewing officer, he declined to use his power to lighten any of the sentences determined by the International Military Tribunal — seven to die on the gallows; 1C to spend the rest of their lives in prison, two to lesser prison terms. The supreme commander called his task "utterly repugnant" to him. He closed his review, of the war guilt case with a plea to people of all creeds in Japan to pray on execution day — yet to be made public — to help the world keep the peace, "lest the human race perish." Attorneys for five defendants planned to appeal to the supreme court of the United States which has never yet intervened in international war crimes cases. MacArthur, in his statement, said he saw no reason for him to intervene. Whether the prisoners should have been prosccutrcd at all was not for him to say. But the two-year trial itself, ho went on, was a fair one; every safeguard was made to "evolve justice." than during the a Selective Service official said today.

Most of the men being examined arc in the 24 and 25-year-old groups, though some boards are down to their 23-year-olds and a few to the 22s.

The Vanishing American Today !s the Indian on the Qld-Fashioned Nickel By HAL BOYLE New York, —I/PI— The vanishing American today is the Indian on the old-fashioned nickel. He is losing face faster than Chiang Kai-shek. No wonder he is looking west toward the sunset. He has had his day. He and Ihc buffalo are going down together. For Ihe nickel is aboul as useful to the average man now as a golf ball is to a hen. Time was when the nickel delighted Ihe childish hcarl. Give one lo a kid today, and the little innocent is likely "to inquire: "What's it for?" And it is a hard question lo answer. The nickel, like the old grey mare, ain't what she use-d to be. The coin originally was strictly an inflation product. Now it's a victim of inflation. It was first minted in IBfio' in the high price times following the Civil 'cigar War. Before that the people had' made small change with half cents, large cents, pennies, bronze' two cents, nickel three cents, and silver three-cent and half-dime pieces. The new five-cent nickel, which was actually only 213 p L -r cent nickel and 73 per cent copper, quickly drove the two-cent Ihrec- cent and half-dime coins out of circulation. It had a mighty rein.

It is a far cry Irom the original American Thanksgiving in more ways than one. It's changed from the preceding generation when the cooking started the first part of. the week and kitchens were filled with the smell of sage, mince-meat and jHirripkin. pies set to cool beside red'apple's irom barrels in the cellar. Now a turkey may be bought ready for the oven except for a final 'thawing, and cranberry sauce can be purchased in a can. An average Thanksgiving dinner for a family of five this year will range from $141 estimated "by Bos- Ion grocers lo ?i!.95 complete with a 10-pound turkey in Dallas, Tex. The bill was estimated at $12.95 in New York. Turkeys sold for 07 cents a pound in New York and Chicago, coin pared with 49 cents a year ago. But il wasn't the highest turkey price on record. The new price in 1929, the year the stock market crashed was GB cents a pound. In 20 years, breeders brought the price down, produced more white meal, and developed an apartment size" turkey of seven to 10 pounds. Even cranberries have been changed. The lowly red berry of the bogs had felt the impact of strange people and ideas, and emerged in everything from cranberry borsch to cranberry sherbet. Thanksgiving is the one American holiday observed by all, yet it took two and one half centuries lo become an annual holiday. Boulder, Colo., Nov. 21 —(/PI —!

Walker objected and a fight followed. The man reached in the glove compartment of the car and grabbed Walker's .45 army auto- malic pistol.
