If you want to use the atomic bomb against us, very well. We will die." In a communique issued a day after adjournment of their meeting here, the kings, princes and presidents of the Arab states pledged their support to the Unit ed Nations, hut said new immigration into Palestine as recommended by the British-American inquiry committee report might create disturbances "having a very bad consequence on international peace." Ask Arab Independence The Arb rulers declared also for evacuation of British troops from Egypt and achievement of Egyptian sovereignty, and as-gerted that independence of Trip- olitania and Cyrenaica must be achieved as "a natural matter of Justice." ' It was not stated whether the Arab League would appeal the Palestine case to the United Nations Security Council in the tvent an attempt is made to move 100,000 Jews into Palestine. 1551 Planes Now Stored Here Going for Junk WASHINGTON, May 30 (INS) The War Assets Administration announced Thursday that approximately 20,000 surplus bombers, reconnaissance planes, fighters and other types of tactical aircraft are being offered for sale for their scrap and salvage value.

Is Theme Here Wernette Addresses Crowd After Parade A pledge to support world peace and peace at home was the theme emphasized in a Mem orial Day address by President John P. Wernette of the university of New Mexico, delivered to a thousand listeners at the Court House square. The address followed a seven- division parade of veterans, civic organizations, military personnel! and city officials down flag-draped Central Avenue. Homage Not Enough "It is not enough merely to pay our respects and go away," Dr. Wernette declared. "We must work' and support all measures to protect the peace made possible by the sacrifice of our fallen soldiers." A prayer "that all those who gave their lives may participate in thy glorious ascent" was given in the invocation by Fr. Peter Hill. Heads bowed while Rev. W. L. Russell, New Mexico State Guard chaplain, pronounced the benediction. The crowd contained many friends and relatives of men lost in World War II.

He did not speak. He acted for the entire nation m paying homage to the dead of all wars 'That certainly is a conserva tive figure," said two spokesmen for the industry. Based on a 35-cent Increase per ton, and last year's 575,000,000-ton output, the cost would exceed 200 million dollars. Government officials predicted a boost of 30 to 35 cents in prices. Some officials predicted a boost of 30 to 35 cents in prices. Some operators say 35 cents is extremely conservative. For many operations the cost would be more than 60 cents a ton, they say.
