The announcement came at Ihe close of a House foreign affairs de- bale, the grlmness of which was not, allayed by Churchill's statement he felt a major attack by Russia In Europe was unlikely "In the near future."

(AP) — President Truman's appointment of a Price Administrator touched off predictions In Congress today that wage-price controls are sure to follow. There was not much disagreement about the likelihood of their being invoked eventually, but legislators had varying estimates about how soon. Mr. Truman late yesterday named Mayor Michael V.

He added: "He Is not appointing a man to that job Just to sit around." Senator Maybank (L1-SC), chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, said he believes "We are coming awfully close to wage-price controls," and added: "I can't see how'they can be avoided unless there ts a drastic Im- proement in the world situation, if there isn't, we will have to impose controls in simple Justice to our fighting forces In Korea."

"As a result of this study, and the etc of Hie parents, the Athletic ;on]inittce recommended to the •ward that all athletic schedules ic ween IhR schools be discontinued or an indefinite period." When told of the JonesUoro School Jcard's action, W. B. Nicholson, sup- rintendent of Blytheville schools, .aid he had "no conunent." Russell Moaley, Blytheville High School coach, also made no cotn- ncnt. ' However, Max B. Reid, president of the Blytheville School Board, commented: f am disappointed and somewhat amazed by the action of the Jonesboro School Board and author- .tics in dropping all relations -Kith Blythcvillc. I also do not understand what is meant by a 'cooling off period.' Cites Only Enemy "The. people of Blytheville do not regard Jonesboro asiour enemy and we certainly are not the enemy ol Jonesboro. . It should be remembered that ovir enemy is across the seas ^nd that our boys are dying in combat with that enemy today. There is but little doubt, unless providence intervenes, that those same Blytheville and Jonesboro uoys who played one another in football several.weeks ago, will be fighting and perhaps dying together before another football season rolls'around. "Afte> all, football Ls only a game. If adults cannot be adults m their appraisial of it, it is well to stop the game." The action of the Jotiesboio School Board in electing to sever relations with Blytheville not only stands in football but' in basketball and track, it was pointed oxil. It also includes relations between both senior and junior high school te'ams of the two cities. The Chicks have two basketball games scheduled with Jonesboro for their lQ5G-5i season and the Paps have the same nximber. the National security Resources Board told newsmen yesterday lhal America Excels In Firepower, Agency Soys WASHIls'GTON, Dec. V. (A'>—The Defense Department reported today that American infantry and armored divisions have approximately one and one-half times as much firepower as their Russian counter- pa i't 3. The comparison was made iti "fact sheet" which an Army spok esniHii said was issued to report ers as a result of numerous inquir ios on the subject. The spokcsmai said here wa.s no significance t the release of the information. While the fact sheet made no comparison of the numbers of American and Russian divisions, it Is well kno'.vn that the U-S. now has only a traction of the number the Russians do. Tyrol Plagued By Cold War VIENNA (AP)—A "cold war" has broken out in the heart of the snowy Austrian sky country. Two provinces of Western Austria—the Tyrol and Vorarlberg—have most ol the mountains and most o! the snow, Last week, the Tyroleans accused the Vorarlberg provincial authorities of carrying out a "snow blockade". They said the Vorarl- bergers were refusing to clear snow off a pass that separated the" two provinces. This, the Tyroleans said, was preventing wimer tourists from reaching them. The Vorarlbergers replied: "You can clear it off yourselves if you want to." It Is less likely to snow in very cold weather because cold air does not hold much water vapor. ... and Priced Right, Too. 1 Be bright—buy right now!
