In such cases, it said, "sufficient space will be allolcd for expansion by the prospective purchaser." The Jacksonville. Ark., plant was operated during th 0 war by I-Vnd. Bacon <fc Davis. The agency said H is suitable for conversion to aluminum fabrication. Little Hock business men expect to lease this plant.

Flood Control Bill Approved By Committee With Lewis a Buck Private, Who Wouldn't Wanta Be a Top Kick PAGE THftEB ;" BV FREDERICK C. OTHMAN I United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, May 30. (UP) — I hope John L. Lewis appreciates my efforts in trying to find out about his possible future as a buck private. Partly the neews Is good and partly it is bad. If the king of the coal miners Is drafted under President Truman's emergency labor legislation, the fur over his "peeper Is safe. Tile Army ins no anti-eyebrow regulations, but that gray mane of his may liave to g 0 . When a G I barber goes to work on a head of hair like John L/s, lie uses a lawnmower and turns his victim loose three minutes later looking like a peeled Bermuda onion. In my efforts to be helpful I t'iinncrcd these facts and others at the Pentagon. This was not easy. You'd be amazed how many officers of the U. S. Army refuse flatly to talk about the sartorial problems in khaki of gentlemen like Lewis. Having been rebuffed by brass all (he way up to lieutenant colonels when I mentioned the name, Lewis, I grabbed me a second loole In the Quartermaster corps and kept personalities out of it. had a prospective I told him I soldier who weighed about 245 pounds, with waist line of about 50 Inches and So I said just suppose the Army iceded fat men.

The spokesman of the supply department added that a little' road work probably would reduce I he embomiiolnt iiie used anolher word) of my friend and make n better man of him. I said was he forgetting the feet? "No Indeed," (he lieutenant replied. "When a man Is tluil heavy he obviously Is going to have his feet flattened out and the Army Is prepared for anything. A .surgeon will prescribe shoes for him on nil orthopedic last and he will get a year's supply of shoes as a, starter." That's cheering news, because theres' nothing worse in Mu- infantry. I understand, than painful hoofs. The bad thing, should the Presidential draft iif labor .leaders conic to pass, ha s to do .with Lewis' liking for good Havana cigars. The average P.
