THE/AMAKILLO DAILY NEWS, AMAHILLO, TEXAS FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 19, 19*6 TRAFFIC COP OF AIRWAVES TARIFFGUTTINGNEXTSTEP FOR EXPANDING WORLD TRADE WASHINGTON, July 18 (P)--Tariff cutting took the top spot today on this country's program for expanding global trade. - As a. quick followup to the $3,750,000,000 loan to Britain, some 30 or more inter-departmental committees are at work within the government drafting lists of thousands'of com-, modi ties on which lower import duties will be considered. Under authority of the 1934 Trade Agreements Act renewed last .year, the administration can slash pres- ent tariffs as much as 50 per cent, provided American industries are not Jeopardized by the cuts.' These reductions, however; will be A cathode ray direction finder here occupies the atten- tion of Adolph .Anderson, supervisor of the FCC's Cen- tral Atlantic monitoring area..

Along with other surplus government radio equipment, the walkie- talkie is a large headache that has been magnified ever since a young ex-Navy radioman, and a trio of accomplices, parlayed one. of those portable two-way radios, safe-crack- ing, and youthful daring into a large haul of folding money lifted from a number of New York concerns. The New York walkie-talkie gang was nabbed, to be sure, and thus far ' it is the only successful case of such utilization of this type of radio. But the FCC, which has the job of polic- ing the air waves for illegal broad- casts, doesn't feel any better. One precaution set down by the FCC was side-stepped by the New York youths because the leader built his own walkie-talkie. Actually, you can't buy one unless you get a license to use it, although the alluring ad- vertisements for walkie-talkies often omit that qualification. And no 'li- cense will be issued by the.FCC ex- cept in the amateur service. This requires special examinations which the average person could not pass. The cheering thought that .this will prevent your wife from calling you up on your way to the corner store, however, is chilled by the fact that FCC is studying a plan which would permit ordinary citizens to use ·walkie-talkies on a special band cet aside just for this purpose. The job of the FCC in constantly monitoring the air for Illegal-broad- casts is complicated by military de- velopments during the War which discovered, along with the walkie- talkie, that there was 300 times more room in the ether than previously had been known. Must Be Licensed \nd it is further complicated by youngsters who are buying the -.urplus radio equipment cheaply but don't understand how to use it. They don't know that ,311 forms of broadcasting--regardless of wave- length used or-how weak the sig- 'nals might be--have to be licensed by the government. The result is interference with regular broad- casts, plane communications, and other legitimate uses. The FCC has nine primary sta- tions all over the U. S., and 13 secondary stations constantly polic- ing the ether. In addition there are 100 mobile direction finder units in operation which can locate the exact spot of unlicensed radio send- ing. According to law, the penalty for an illegal broadcast is a fine not to exceed S10.000. imprisonment for two years, or both. Most teen-agers caught misusing transmitting equip- ment are let off with a severe lee- NIGHTMARE Hard - of -hearing ? N o p e . FCC Engineer John C. Pe- terson is demonstrating' a transmitter confiscated at Laurel, · Md., race track. This walkie-talkie, with the microphone w o r n as a round disk on the wrist, was a nightmare to bookies made applicable only to countries willing; to offer comparable con- I cessions. j But whereas earlier trade agree- I ments were negotiated separately with individual nations, present plans call for a 16-nation confer- ence to write a single compact cov- ering not only tariff duties but other trade barriers in the form of quotas, preferences 'and subsidies. Preparations for this conference are regarded by officials here as the beginning of the second .stage in long-range American plans to raise international living standard by freeing and- expanding commerce. The first step was the British loan, finally approved only, this week. The initial advance under the loan -- a $300,000,000 item -- was scheduled to be made available to- day through the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. One of the principal factors -in- volved in the loan was that with an ample supply of. dollars Great Britain would be able to support the American free trade program. . Hence officials here are counting on the trade conference early next year to bring early relaxation and ultimate abolishment of British Empire trade preferences. This sys- tem has made it more economical for members of the empire to trade among themselves rather than with outsiders. The tariff cuts by this and other countries would round out the pro- gram. American trade officials acknowl- edge, however, that some other practices followed by this govern- ment also will have to be revised. They mentioned specifically the recent quota placed on imports of Swiss watches as' well as subsidies and artificial price levels established or contemplated for American cot-1 ton and wool. Flay Moscow's Hungary Rule LONDON, July 18 (fP] -- Britain has sent a note of protest .to Mos- cow, complaining of cEtreme and unwarranted interference In the internal affaire of Hungary, the Foreign Office said today. A spokesman said the representa- tion followed Russian demands for dismissal of the vice-minister of justice, and for withdrawal of Im- munity for three smallholder depu- ties whom the Soviets accused of anti-Russian statements.

CHICAGO, July 18 (.?) -- E v i - dence that some of modern man's earliest ancestors may have been giants ranging up to twice the size of a male gorilla was disclosed today by Dr. Franz Weidcnrcich, research associate of the Ameri- can Museum or Natural History. In a book published today called "Apes, Giants and Man," Dr. Weid- enreich told of recent discoveries of a fossilized giant human jawbone in Java and a huge human tooth found in China. "It may not be too far from the truth if we suggest the Java giant was much bigger than any living goriUa and that the Chinese giant was correspondingly bigger than the Java giant--that is one and one half times as large as the Java giant and twice as large as a male gorilla," he said. He added there were only "mere indications" thus far that the giants were older than all other known human types and expressed hope that the search for fossils could be continued in Java and China now that the war in the Pacific has ended Have Pie Supper PANHANDLE, July 18 (Special) J.

Malicious intent brings stern prose- cution: since Jan. 1, the FCC has brought more than 60 cases into court, and some of the defendants already are serving time. Gambler's Trick Crooked race track gamblers tangling with FCC monitors is an old story. The idea is to flash a running account of the race, while it is still, in progress, to a confed- erate who places late bets with a bookie. In 1910 at Charlestown, two illicit, operators were caught, using a portable transmitter about the size of a camera and a larger trans- mitter just. outside the track as a relay station. Both men are in Jail. The latest happened last month. Two men were nabbed just before they went on the air at Belmont Brazilian Okays U. S. Atom Plan NEW YORK, Jnly 18 (#)--C*pt. Alvaro Alberto of Brazil, new chairman of the United Nations Atomic Commission, said today that the United States atomic- control plan should be accepted as the basis for discussion. After formally taking over, the chairmanship from Dr. Herbert V. Evatt of Australia, who is leaving Friday to attend the Paris Peace conference, the Brazilian naval scientist told reporters: "I believe the Baruch plan- should form the basis of discussions by the commission. It gives ~an excellent basis and is a complete plan." Captain Alberto said he.did not believe the question of outlawing the production of use of atomic weapons, as proposed by Soviet Russia, could be dealt with sepa- rately. He said it should be con- sidered'as part of a broader plan, as suggested by Bernard M, 'Baruch. Asked about the veto question, Captain Alberto said this issue was not yet on the agenda. He added, however, that it .appeared to him that many countries are against the veto on matters relating to atomic j I energy. His press conference was held Im- mediately after a meeting of the atomic commission at which he said the international control of .atomic energy would be-an important step toward the abolition of war. "We must do away with' every possible form of mass destruction including air raids and naval bom- bardment," he said. "We must'stop killing innocent, women and chil- dren. It is war we must, do away with." ' . . . . MILK EHHMH^MJ Beraens Whit* Swan R*d Whit* (Limit) 3 Tall Cans BUTTER FLOUR G»n. Mills King Wheat 25-Lb. Bag $129 TOMATO JUICE Reagan's 46-oz.
