HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS (Connolly Backs Fulbright's Resolution Washington. June 17 —(/TV- Implying a belief that congressional postwar planners have not quite ttlhg the bell yet. Chairman Con- ftally (D-Tex.) of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee predicted today tfcat his group eventually Would draft its own resolution. The silvery - maned Texas spoke as backers of a resolution by Rep. Fulbright (D-Ark.) pressed for House action on his plan to commit the United Stales to take a part in preserving the peace when war ends. Connally termed the Fulbright resolution "cryptic" in its terms, but said that if it passes the House it will be considered along with eight other proposals already before a Senate subcommittee. He left little room for doubt, however, that the subcommittee would disregard among others a resolution by Senators Ball (R- MinnJ, Burton (,R-Ohio). Hatch (D-NM), and Hill (D-Ala.) calling for organization of the United Nations into a permanent peace-preserving body. "This question involves much more than writing something on a piece of paper," Connally said in an interview. "It is believed that after the summer recess of Congress, the subcommittee..will recommend a resolution t&' the full committee. It will probably be a resolution drafted by, .the subcommittee in a form of its own." The Fulbright proposal. which Chairman Bloom (D-NY) of the Foreign Affairs Committee said he hoped to bring before the House next week, would put Congress on record as "favoring the creation of appropriate international machinery with power adequate to cstab- lish and to maintain a just and lasting peace, and as favoring participation by the United States therein." While Ball said he regarded this as "A step in the right direction," he indicated he and others interested in pledging this country to active participation in postwar organization to preserve the peace by force, it necessary, want more specific language. There have been indications, however, that any resolution re- a preview and a stage show.

Recent efforts by some of the supporters of the Ball-Burton-Hill Hatch proposal to obtain an endorsement from Secretary of State Hull were reported to have been unsuccessful. Hull was represented as cautioning against precipitate action. IN YOUR FURNITURE with GLOSFAST THE -4-HOUR DRYING ENAMEL Hope Retail Lumber Co. Hope, Ark.

Some officials estimated new mixers, mills, vuleani/.ers, tire s-iid Gold-1 building machinery and other bad on i equipment in a volume to process about 2f,t).(100 svnthclic — roughly one Ihe ttOO.OOO tons to be turned out annually — would be required. Heavy strains on the capacity on lire makers arc expected when they are called on not only to fill j the needs of military vehicles and j aircraft, but to replace civilian tires which will take no more recapping. The "grade 3" tires Issued since Pearl Harbor — used tires or ones made entirely of reclaimed rubber — will need replacement ily, it was declared, .letters' office was reported to be preparing a complete program of estimated machinery needs for i submission to SPB. and to be op! timistic of its acceptance. No ma- - — ! chinery of this type has been made bombers and for two years. i All plant units of the synthelic rubber program are expected to be in operation by the end ot this year.
