Garment WorkersjRefuse to Go Along With Lewis' CIO Union Honor Lewis' Work in Mass-Production Industries, But Garment Workers Are Opposed to Dual Unionism—Will Return to A. F. of L. PITTSBURGH, Pn.—(/P)-C. I. O. Chaifm'aii John L. Lewis, militant leader of the new industrial union movement, completed preliminary organization of C. I. O.'s first constitutional convention Friday, apparently undisturbed by the refusal of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union to join in a pcrmanct C. I. O. The announcement in Washington -©that the Garment Workers, one of the founders of C. I. O. three years ago, would assume n neutral position in labor's civil war did not surprise either Lewis or his C. I, O. leaders. The opinion was general in C. I. O. convention headquarters that the Garment Workers would eventually return to the American Federation of Labor. Against Dual Unionism The uctoon of the I. L. G. W. U. , announced in Washington by David Dubinsky, union president, disclosed that the break came over the issue of peace or war in the labor movement. Dubinsky's executive board voted against sending delagatcs to the convention opening Monday on the grounds it was opposed to dual unionism as represented by the bitter struggle for labor supremacy between Lewis' movcftvcnl and the A. F. of L. The board said it recognized the "historic service" C. I. O. had performed in organizing workers in mass production industries, but was "No less keenly aware that the perpetuation of the division of labor through -the existence of two national competitive labor bodies would prove ruinous to the worker." Parley Offer Expected The decision of the I. L. G. W. U. to stand alone and continue its efforts to restore labor peace, will not exclude tlie subject of unity from the C. I. O. agenda. It is regarded as unlikely that any militant minority will challenge Lewis' stand on unity negotiations. He is expected to declare that lie will return to the peace conference table if the A. F. of L. will moderate its policy to carry on the fight until C.I.O. capitulates. Lewis named Thomas Kennedy, lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, as chairman of a committee to draft and l>esent a constitution for a permanent C. I. O. Kennedy is secretary-treasurer of Lewis' United Mine Workers Union. Col. Barton Sees Livestock Future Aide for Arkansas President of First Stock Show'Enthusiastic Over Success LOCAL BOYS GOOD Pair of Arkansans Give the Pros a Lesion in Bullclogging LITTLE ROCK.-A great future for livestock raising the 'baby" of Ark- nnsas's industries, was prophesied by Col. T. H. Barton, president of the Arkasas Livestock Show Association and the other speakers at a dinner given by Colonel Barton for nearly 100 of the state's business, civic and political leaders Friday night. "I'm very serious about this," Colonel Barton told his guests. "I'll want to see this movement grow into one that your son iincl your grandsons will profit by. I want it to become something that will help them to appcrciate this fine homeland thta we have within thiji state's boundaries. "Let us redouble our efforts and our energies and our determination to build something that will put the youth of our state in the profit-sharing class." Arkansas Boys Cowl Two Arkansas cowboys gave championship performers a lesson in the art of bulldogging and calf roping as the fourth day of the championship rodeo attracted the week's greatest attendance Friday. Glen Harp, Springdale, stopped the rodeo for five minutes as more than 6,000 spectators applauded his feat of roping and lying a calf in 15.4 .seconds, one-fifth of a second faster than Dick Johnson, Talficld. Both defeated Everett Bow'mtm, Hillside (Ari.) champion .all-around cowboy of the world for the last two years, whose time was 17.2 seconds. Johnson returned to the arena later to take the lead in the bulldogging con- ti. »• .w.hpn he Icapov.-front hUvlwsc.and threw a steer in 12 seconds. His time was soon eclipsed by Howard McCrory, who established a new record for the wetfk's contests of 5.4 seconds. Sold at Auction The final livestock event of the show was completed Friday morning when 4-H club and Future Farmers of America baby beeves were sold at auction. A 875-pound Aberdeen Angus steer, grand champion fat steer of the 4-H club contest, was bought by the Greater Little Rock Chamber of Commerce for 27 cents a pound. The animal was owned by Willard Davis of Lawrence county. The reserve champion 4-H club steer, owned by Floyd Brooks of Washington county, was sold for 16 cents a pound to the Missouri Pacific Lines. The calf weighed 820 pounds. Other 4-H cub calves were sqkl in groups, according to Market grades. Seven animals classed as "good" wore bought by the Little Rock Packing Company for 12 cents a pound. Included were entries owned by Wendell Kimbrough, Bobby Gladden, Roy McAlpin, Ward Askew, Joe Stewart and Keith Shoffncr.

The Nroth Sidcrs scored in every period. Hard running and hard blocking accounted for the win. Although they were badly outclassed, the Trojans showed up well in the passing department. They passed the North Sidcrs dizzy after they started in the third quarter, but were unable to score ex- cept once. Marlin Godwin, Trajan end, lived up to advance notices as a pass receiver, but two other lads, Blair, a Camden transfer student, and Demby, a converted tackle, not only passed but also caught. Tlie Trojans atte'mpted 25, completed 12 for 257 yards and had only one intercepted. Most of the passes came in the final half.

Brothers Meet PARIS, France— (IP)— A fraiendly, informal meeting with the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester Friday brought the Duke of Windsor back into the British royal family circle with social acceptance of his American wife. The Gloucesters spent Armistice Day with the exiled former King Edward VIII and the wife for whom he abdicated. When the two couples left their hotel for an. afternoon drive they were cheered by a sidewalk crowd. ".'"My goodness",'"* 1 never expected this," said the Duchess of Windsor. "Neither did I," replied the Duchess of Gloucester. "But it's rather fun, isn't it?" The meeting of Edward and his younger brother was expected in British circles to be followed by sucessive receptions of the Windsors by other members of the royal family, eventually permitting them to return to England. Friends of the Windsors believed the Gloucesters had brought an invitation for Edward and his wife to spend Christmas with the royal family in London. Believed to be emissaries of King George, the Gloucesters .greeted the Windsors behind closed doors of a suite in Hotel Meurice in the first reunion of the brothers since Edward left England after his abdication December 10, 1936. A spokesman said the two men shook hands and smiled with "extreme warmth and affection." The two duchesses were described as being "very gracious to each other." After lunch of oysters on the half shell, Russian fish pie, steak, potatoes, fresh eggs and white Alsatian wine in the Gloucesters' suite the two couples went for their drive, chatting happily together. It Would Take 'Men of Mars' 1,000 Years_tp Fly to Earth There Is Life on Red Planet, But Science Speculates What Kind of Beings Are Able to Endure Little Oxygen and Exertme Cold A radio dramatization of a book about war between Earth and Maj-s sent a wave of hysteria acoss the county- In the play, Martians arrived in ships, spread death and destruction by strange, frightful weapons... Science Editor Blakeslec here discusses the possibility of life on Mars and of communication between the two planets, By HOWARD W. BLAKESLEE AP Science Editor NEW YORK—In 60 years since the so-called "canals" were discovered on Mars, science has not been able to rule out absolutely the possibility of living beings on the red planet. Two kinds of beings are still possi-©- ble there. One is the "life as we know it" sort, meaning oxygen breathers like men. Astronomers have definitely established that Mars has only about one- thousandth the oxygen in its air that is present on earth. No human could live there without an oxygen helmet. Mars Shy on Oxygen But, as pointed out by Dr. Henry Norris Russell of Princeton University, one of the world's great astronomers persons on Mars, of no greater intelligence than man. could have learned to extract oxygen to use for breathing purposes. A long time ago Mars is presumed to have had more abundant oxygen. The other sort of person on Mars would be "anerbic," that is, not needing oxygen. Among bacteria and a few other low froms.of.life on earth there are "anerobes." TJiey live jvith- out oxygen. So if evolution is plausible, life might develop on Mars with little need for oxygen, Mars' temperature, around the equator, in summer is about 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This has been accurately measured by astronomers. Clouds have been seen in telescopes. They seem to stand about 15 miles above the surface. They may be huge dust storms. A few "canals" are two thousand miles or more long, almost straight lines. They stretch across the planet's face at odd angles. Short feeders, like telephone cross-trees, enter them at some places. Looks Like Vegetation Some areas on Mars turn distinctly gray-green in summer. Vegetation is the best guess as to the cause of this color change. If this is vegetation, it probably would be of a lowly, desert varity. Photographs do not show the "canals" at all. These have to be seen with the eye. Some of the best astronomers claim to see them: others have denied the lines are visible. The earth's separation from communication with Mars is becoming less certain now. Theoretically a space ship could make the flight. Wojuld Take 1,000 Years Rocket ship propulsion would do it —for a man who had one thousand years or more to live and fuels which do not now exist. The engineering principles have been established by rocket motor scientists. These have shown through "empty" space, in fact, travel much easier there than in atmosphere. Rocket engineers have produced speeds of 700 miles an hour with small rocket motors, and might predict that speeds of 1,000 miles an hour are attainable. At that rate, unless the rocket ship travelled many times faster in space, it would take about 1,400 years to fly to Mars when the planet is closet. The distances from earth range from 34,000,000 miles to 46, 000,000. For Martians, if they exist, to be the pioneers in a trip between planets, much more advanced knowledge than exists on earth would be necessary. Scientists know that stories of high energy exist in the binding forces of atoms that could drive a rocket ship millions of miles. iBut there is yet no idea of how this energy can be obtained, and some doubt that it can ever be done. If Maritains have found out how to get atomic energy, it is likely they also have the materials and the engineering skill to make a flight to earth. But no Martians have arrived, so that this speculation, like all the others ends in the verdict—no evidence of higher forms of life on Mars. 400 Million Tax on Envoy's Death; Catholics Are Hit German Government Forbids Jews From Engaging in Trade •, PALACE IS STONED Oratory T Crazed Crowd, [Wrecks Catholic Pal-' ace in Munich ' " By Tlie Associated Press Jews were assessed 400 milion dollars by Germany Saturday as the penalty for the slaying of a German, diplomaat by a young Jew.

Republican Gain Democratic Gain .Republicans Retain Offices Democrat Retain Office* By NBA Service (Final returns have given a Democratic victory in Indiana—shown on the 'map with a question mark). This map shows at a glance how the Republican party surged back toward its former power on a wave of anti- New Deal sentiment that started in the northeastern states and rolled through the farm belt, the mountain states ajid as far west as Oregon. The Cross -hatched states are the ones in which Republicans gained either a senatorship or governorship. The states—Caifornia, North Dakota and Maryland—with diagonal lines are those in which Democrats cap-' lured offices. Light dot states indicate slates in which Democrats retained their hold on senatorial and gubernatorial posts. In Maine, which voted early, and Vermont, Republicans remained in power. A recount was considered certain in Indiana, where Senator Frederick Van Nuys held a slight lead over his Republican opponent, Raymond Willis. There were no governorship or sen- atorship contests in Montana. The 'solid South" remained Democratic. Here's a list of the senatorial and gubernatorial victories.

Christmas Seal Supplies Arrive Lloyd Coe, New York Artist, Is Designer of Seal This Year Plans for the 1938 Christmas Seal campaign were speeded up this week by th earrivel of the supplies and a preview of them by the local committee. The tuberculosis Seal for this year is unusally attractive, according to James H, Pilkinton chairman. It shows a mother and two young children in the costumes of the Victorian age lighting a candle in the window of their home. At the bottom on either side is a red double-barred cross, insignia of the international fight against tuberculosis. The Seal carries the words "Health Greetings." Bordered in red, the seal Is carried out in typical Christmas colors, making an attractive decoration for greet ing cards and gifts. The corner of each sheet of 100 Seals carries the portraits of four men who have played imporatan parts in the fight against tuberculosis. The Seal was designed by Lloyd Coe, a New York artist. The theme is intended to signify the protection that the organized fight against tuberculosis brings to the home. Christmas Seals finance the county, state and natioal campaign for he eradicaion of tuberculosis. So abundant is iron ore around Kro- pna.
