GETS IN THEIR HAIR NEW YORK, May 13.— (JP)— John Sebastian's recording of Claude Debussy's "Girl With the Flaxen Hair" is being taken off the market because heirs of the late French composer felt Sebastian's instrument "did not show as much respect for the selection as the piano, for which it — iginally was written."

Wallace says "the time has come to nationalize the coal industry under some type of coal authority," and added that "coal means so much to the life blood of the world that neither labor nor agriculture can tolerate the inconveniences which come so frequently in this key industry." Speaking last night before a paid audience estimated at 5,600, Wallace said that "in the five countries I visited in western Europe in April. I found coal next after wheat to be the key problem." The former vice president and cabinet member, now editor of the New Republic, said, in continuing his attack on President Truman's proposed $400,000,000 Greece-Turkey loan, "an extra 60,000,000 tons of coal produced in the United States during the next year would do more to solve the problems of western Europe than ten Greek loans." "The world needs for coal are so great" Wallace said, "that neither the obduracy of the operators nor the stubborn will of John L. Lewis should be allowed to cause the infinitude of suffering any paralysis which would result from a coal strike." "Labor is entitled," he added to the "equivalent of what" the corporate form of organization gives to industry. Wallace said "we cannot solve our domestic economic problems by punishing our free labor movement and asked his listeners: "should (senator) Joe Ball (R- Minn) be able to use the stubbornness of the coal operators and John L. Lewis as an excuse to cripple the bargaining power of all labor?" "These people," Wallace continued, "have been nuisances long enough in our national economy." Wallace also told the meeting, sponsored by the Democratic- Farmer Labor party of Minnesota and the New Republic, that if "the Truman policy x x x is applied in France, Italy and England, as well ar in every country bordering on Russia, the result will be depression, universal chaos, and finally revolution in Europe and then war." TtttUAt, MAY I* Real Baby Gets Rough Treatment PORTLAND, Ore., May 13.— (JP) —The mistake of two children in thinking a sleeping infant was a doll baby put two-month-old Patricial Sullivan in a hospital with a fractured skull, police said yesterday. Police headquarters reported Mack Smith, a neighbor, told of watching the two girls frequently drop a bundle on the street. When he heard cries, Smith investigated and found the infant wrapped in the blankets. The girls, ages 3 and 4, said they took the infant from a carriage on the sidewalk at the nearby home of the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Sullivan.

Plans had been made to lift the out of bounds restrictions, imposed as a safety measure, but were rescinded by the military commander of the area only a few hours after the shooting. The slain constables, said to have been members of the Criminal Investigation Department, were mowed down by a blazing fusillade of gunfire shortly before dusk while the streets were crowded with shoppers. The source of the shots was uncertain, but police said they might have been fired from a nearby balcony.

May 13—OP)— Action of Hollywood bowl director* in denying Henry Wallace use of the amphitheater for a speaking engagement May 19 has been deplored in a resolution adopted by the Democratic State Central Committee, chairman James Roosevelt has announced. Roosevelt said the resolution dr- plored "the refusal of the use of Hollywood bowl or any such public forum to any speaker presenting any political views no matter what they may be" and added that "it is understood that this does no f indicate the committee approval or disapproval of such views." Wallace sponsors, the Progressive Citizens of America, have obtained Gilmore stadium for his address. WASHINGTON, May 13,— After long public hearings by the Houie Ways and Meant committee. Republican leaden indicated today they will make no immediate attempt to change the reciprocal trade program. However, Chairman Knutton (R-Minn) said the committee will continue to keep close watch on the 18-nation tariff-reducing negotiations now in progress at Geneva, Switzerland, and may have some revisions to suggest later. Knutson said he will appoint a subcommittee to draw up a report to the House on the full committee's reciprocal trade study. Indications are that it will reflect the criticisms of some Republican members. Rep. Doughton (D-NC) senior Ways and Means Democrat, immediately announced that a group of committee Democrats will "con- DANVILLE aj 6 NEW FAIRGROUNDS DAILEY BROS, ' 5* R£n HUGE FREE MENAGERIE KOHMA DAVENPORT World'* Youngett Elapbutf Trainer Daring Aerialists.

"If there ever hat been legislation that has justified itself, and accomplished its purposes, it is the reciprocal trade act," Dough- ducted the investigation. Critics don't deny this, but they seem to base their fears on something that might happen in the future." Rep. Gearhart (R-Calif) replied: "It is apparent that a lot of our industries are getting hurt. Tariffs are being cut without any compensatory entry for our goods into the markets of foreign countries." The committee investigation began over a month ago after Gearhart and Rep. Jenkins (R-Ohio) introduced resolutions proposing that further trade negotiations be held up pending an investigation of the operation of the program. No action was taken on the resolutions but the committee conducted the investigation.
