Terming the transaction a "pooling" of resources, Littell said it had the effect of giving the Standard Oil Company a monopoly on oil production from the reserve for the first five years. He added that the scope of the contract was so broad as to surpass what he believed to be the intentions of Congress in acts it has passed for oil conservation. The president's message to Premier Josef Stalin had the note of confidence which has become increasingly evident in recent weeks imong leaders of the United Na- ions. He said: "The growing might of the combined forces of all the United Nations testifies to the spirit of unity and sacrifice necessary for our ultimate victory."

Dahlgren, Stephens Lead in Standings New York, June 22 —(/P)— Babe Dahlgren of the Phillies and Bcr- non Stephens of Ihc St. Louis Browns have been standing side by side at the lop of the major league hitters for so long that it is scarcely any wonder today that they are sharing the same balling average. Both have marks of .358 and arc exactly 18 points ahead of their nearest rivals. In the National League Billy Herman of Brooklyn spurted into second place with .340 as Dahlgren held virtually steady. A week ago he had .359. In the American League Oris Hockett of Clcveand conlinuod with his batting pace unchanged, .340 last Tuesday and the same today, while Stephens subsided from .369 to .358.

There'd be chairs and beds for some of them all right but the rest wouldn't find things very comfortable — and neither would you. Meal times, too'— what with rationing — would bring another big headache. All in all, it would be an embarrassing situation for you. GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, .June 22 M J i Wheat futures fluctuated nervously over a range of almost a cent a bushel today. Cash interests were sellers, while shorts and milling interests were buyers on the declines. Uncertainties over the imposition of ceiling prices on wheat contributed to the uneasiness of the market. Weakness of oats and rye was un- olhcr factor. All deliveries of wheat finished at virtually the day's highest levels, unchanged to 1-2 cent above the previous close, July $1.42 1-8 1.42, September $1.42 3-8—1-4; oats were 3-8 to 3-4 cents lower; July 65 1-2. and rye was unchanged to 1-4 cent higher, July 95 3-4—7-8. There were no sales in corn, which closed with all contracts bid at ceiling limits. No Cash wheat. Corn sample State Solons Have Sons in the Service Washington, June 22 —(/P)— The two senators from Arkansas hold positions of special honor in a new organization called the "Congressional War Parents Associalion,' composed of members of Congress with sons or daughters in the armed forces. The list was published in Ihe Congressional record. Senator McClellan is a membei because of his son, Corp. Max E McClellan. who died in Ihe line o duty in North Africa on Februarj 21. 'and also because the senator' next eldest son, John L. Jr., ha just joined the navy. Senator Haltie W. Caraway i listed us one of the directors o the association. Her two sons Paul W. Caraway arid Forres Caraway, are both lieutenant colo nols in "the army. Both are Wcs Pointers. No Arkansas representative in the list. Most of them hav sinall children, too young for wa service. Six-foot specimens of Australia earthworms are common. One gre to a length of 8 feet 6 inches. Well, something like that is happening to us on the Missouri Pacific Lines. For years we have been inviting people to come ride with us, telling them with pride about our fast, on-time service and about the comforts and conveniences of train travel. Then, all of a sudden, the Japs made their sneak attack on 'Pearl Harbor —and, bingo, we were in the war. ft ft Since theti our trains have been getting more and more crowded — mostly by soldiers, sailors, marines and coast guardsmen, traveling on government orders or going to and from their homes on furloughs. On top of that the war caused a lot of extra travel by business people, war plant workers, families of service men and others. And now the rubber shortage and gasoline rationing are causing those people who used to do their traveling over the highways to climb aboard trains. ft ft So today there aren't always enough berths or seats to go around and, to be honest about it, traveling has lost some of its old-time charm. Most people are mighty nice about it though. They know that we can't get any more passenger cars because the government has ruled that the steel and other things needed to build them with ought to go into war needs. ft ft Most people understand, too, that because our railroad is hauling so many special troop trains and extra war freights, delays are sometimes inevitable. Most of our patrons know that our food supplies are rationed, that our diners are crowded and that our meal service is not at all like it used to be or what we want it to be. *• ft And a great many people, realizing the problems we're confronted with, have decided that unless they have urgent business to attend to, or some emergency trip to make, this is a good time not to travel at all. We railroaders are eager for everyone to know that we're doing everything we can to maintain prewar standards and we're mighty grateful for the patient, understanding attitude of most of today's travelers, and for their helpful cooperation. Meanwhile, we're doing everything we can to speed Victory and we're looking forward to the time when things will get back to normal, when we can always be sure of giving everybody the kind of service,that made our railroad famed as a "A Service Institution."MISSOURI PACIFIC LINES ONE C»F AMERICA'S RAIUQAP5, All UNITED fOB VICTORY
