The Senators, digging Into the question of whether there has been improper influence In the conduct of government business, have wanted to know how Maragon and other agents of the perfume company managed to get passage on military transport planes to Europe in 1945. Documents Presented Committee agents also put into the record documentary evidence to the effect that: 1. Vaughan, the President's Army aide, gave a letter of introduction to David Bennett, president of the Albert Verley Perfvme Co., and an associate, to make a trip to Europe in May, 1945. The trip was made In an Army Air Transport plane. 2. Three other representatives of the company, including John P. Maragon, Washington man-about- town who formerly had entree to the White House, made a trip to Europe in July, 1845. Tills trip also was made In an ATC plane. It was on the return from the July trip that Maragon got into difficulties with customs agents who found he had valuable perfume oils disguised as champagne for the White House. The commi f tee was informed tot y that Maragon settled that case r $1,500—Including $1,145 assessed as a penalty. Francis D. Flanagan, assistant counsel, introduced the various documents, including a State Department memorandum. Flanagan said "JFS" was a "Mr. Scanlon." assistant to Mrs. Shipley Mundt Questions Witnesses Senator Mundt tR-SDl commented that he thinks President Truman "probably" had no personal knowledge of what Vaughan was doing. Mundt sajd he wanted to get Ihe affair straight. He asked Flanagan •whether .Vajiirban ' had interceded 'witn 'iiirs. &uiplej^ 1 'with or-titn- ,6ut the 'tnowledge of the T>resi- rfent, and In my opinion probably without the knowledge of the Presi-. dent"—to enable Maragon to visit Italy under a classification signifying thAt hi', trip had been ap- provedViy the President. Flanagan: "That's correct." Senator McCarthy (51 -Wis), when Tlanagari told of the ATC trips, observed that the tripe were made at a time wheri space on ATC was "at a premium because of the very great number of hospital cases that be brp'Whf, back to this Democrats Woo South's Bolters Five States (tighten Kicked Out of Party Before Appeal Made By Ernest K Varraro and Dmirla* B.

INew Hurricane Poses Threat to Southern Florida MIAMI, Fla , Aug. 25—W)—South Florida today was put on the alert for a hurricane. An erratic hurricane in the Atlantic had recurved to the west- northwest during the morning after following a northwest course for time. The new course caused Grady Norton, chief storm forecaster al Miami, to Inform the Northern Bahama Islands to take hurricane precautions and Southern Florida to stand by on the alert. The storm at 11 a.m. was 480 miles east-southeast of Miami moving at 15 miles an hour. "This storm is playing a fe tricks," safd Norton. "It has developed an elongated center and isn't following a true course. We are watching i t nk e a hawk." Meantime, Harry's Hurricane, so « ned because Its brief threat to rida coincided with Presiden Truman's visit to Miami Monday was traveling due east of Atlantic City and 400 miles southeast Cape Cod, Ma». "We can write that one off," said Norton. "All threat to land has ended as far as it Is concerned."

He delivered the invitation— strictly on his own terms—at rousing dinner of the Democratic National Committee a few hours after It had read' five Southern States' Rights members from thi high command. And, leaving the door open tt non-Truman Demorcats In Congres to Jail in line with the Truman program, the committee exemptec them from the party purge. The first of revolt, .however, already were burning anew. States' Righters announced they are opening Washington headquarters to spread the names. The whole thing was sparked by Southern dislike for Mr. Trtunan'i civil rights program. Former Judge Leander Perez New Orleans, in charge of th States Righters' bureau, denounces Mr. Truman's peace ternis today as contrary to the "Jeffersonian prin ciples of real Democrats. He told a reporter the Southern ers are wiling to meet Mr. Truva: "halfway" but "more than tha >V'." : iI hot di>: ' *?-••" -If the president' will adopt Jef 'ersonian principles, we will com nto the Democratic Party again, Perez added. It was Truman the campaigner— winging free style in the manner or his "give 'ra hell" stumping of ast year—who proclaimed his party of today "a national party, and not a sectional party any more." "The tail no longer wags the dog," he said. He went on to say that he won n 1948 without New York, "without the industrial East and without the solid South" and that he was "prouder of that than anything that has ever happened to me." i "And that doesn't mean that we are not inviting the Industrial East and the solid South and all the rest of the country to Join the party of the people, and help the country go forward. That Is exactly what we went, and that is exactly what we are going to accomplish in the next two years." Boyle Becomes Chairman At the same time, he praised the national committee, which elevated William M. Boyle, Jr., former Kansas City police official ,to the chairmanship and purged the five Southern tales' Righters from its rolls for deserting the Truman ticket last year. "I am overwhelmed at the way the situation has worked out," Mr. Truman said. "I don't think the Democratic Party in the history of the nation has ever been In better condition to carry the battle to the foe." He Invited "all those people who are interested in th* welfare of this great republic of oars, who are Interested In the peace of the world, for which we are striving, to get Into the democratic party and go lorward with It." The hundreds of diners whooped it up, campaign year style, when the orchestra played. "I'm Just Wild About Harry.' Meanwhile, Boyle, who took over irom J. Howard McGrath. the new attorney genera], said he plans no purge of non-Truman Democratic congressmen. The committee applied the boot tc Marlon Rushton of Alabama, William H. Talbot of Louisiana, J.

Vaughan advised Senate investigators today he will not be ready to testify tomorrow hi their hearings on "five percenters:"" Chairman Hoey (D-NC) said the President's Army aide said he needed more tirne to find some records he wants to use.

Study of the sources of operating evenue for the Blythevllle Special School District for the current year how thrt more than 71 per cent will come from two sources U the voters participating In the annual school election approve the 30-mill ad valorem tax levy which has been ecommended by the members of he school board. The largest single Item In tbe list of school revenues for the 16 units in the Blytheville district will come in the form of teachers' salary aid from the state. It Is an estimated $121548, and the figure is :onditioned on the assumption :he voters will approve the recommended local tax levy. This levy, based on assessments igalnst real and personal property •n the district, should produce for the schools a total of $121.4%, which Is slightly less than the state will provide from this one source of funds. I" the school budget for the 1949-50 term, which was itemized In data submitted in an item In the Courier News yesterday, It was disclosed that salaries to teachers will use $258.149 out of an operating budget of $340,387. Since teachers* salaries account for such a large portion of the hudgrt for this, and all other districts in the ro-inty and state, it .becomes readily apparent .that the ad valorem tax will have a wy Important Hearing on the amount of money which wil be available to meet this necessary item in anv school budget. It has a bearing of double importance for all school districts and every pupil and school patron in the state's public school system. The sum which the state pays to the local districts in the form of salary aid to teachers li governed by the amount which the district Is avle and willing to pay. In the functioning of democratic processes, the school patrons each year have the privilege of going to the poll; to elect their school directors and at the same time levy the local taxes for support of the schools. By approval of an Initiated school measure in the last general election in November of 1948 the voters delegated to themselves the right to approve or reject school budgets, and required that school directors and administrators prepare and announce the annual budgets in advance of the annual "school-? ?,ieei!ans.
