They require government permission lo start any new construction or repairs over certain dollar minimums ranging from $400 for private ' " ' "' $15,000 for dustries. Construction work already substantially underway will nol be affected. This Includes projects where thc basic materials required for the new building already have been incorporated in the structure. Specific exemptions probably will be announced later. Tlic program also will not ban excess of In cases where the work is absolutely necessary, such as factory additions which would provide additional jobs and smooth the reconversion task, permission will be given. Public works projects, utilities and certain private projects such as farm silos and fences also were exempted from thc program. Maintenance and repair work in industries, utilities and transportation systems likewise were not covered. Details To Be Revealed The order was issued by Housing Expediter Wilson W. Wyatf.nnd Civilian Production Administrator John p. Qmall. They planned to disclose further details of the program at a. news conference this aftcriiooii.- Small said thc success or failure of the program hinged on public support. He pointed out that President Truman already has endorsed thc order in principle when he approved Wyalt's program for building 2,700.000 new homes and apartments for veterans during the WASHINGTON, Mar. 26. (U.P.) —A livestock expert told Congress today that city consumers are threatened with the most acute meat shortage in history within the next six mom IK. II. M. Conway, research director of I he National Livestock Producers Association, told the House Agriculture Committee that unless something is done, meat supplies will be extremely short or nonexistent. There will be "the most chaotic situation conceivable In the marketing and processing of livestock," he said. As a remedy, he urged the removal of nil price ceilings and subsidies on livestock on June 'M —present expiration rtatc of the Price Control Act. He said the immediate effect of the removal of these controls would be an increase in thc price of high-grade cattle and a decrease |X>orer grades. the price of all new construction in the stated minimums. ''The price of higher-grade cattle would rise no more than 15 pel' cent for the city consumer," he said. "This would result in a price no higher than the consumer is now paying on the black market." Conway told thc committee that under present regulations, lhe feeder simply cannot make a profit on heavier, better grade cattle. He said, however, that a "free play" In prices would result in a more equitable price spread between high and low grade cattle. •* *••*:• tmy Leaving Manchuria W. J. Haiiey, former deputy sheriff of Mississippi County under Sheriff Hale Jackson, will rejoin the Memphis Police Department April 1 as an Inspector, Police Commissioner Joe Boyle announced today. Resigning Ids position thc next two years. This includes 200.000 units this year and 1,500,000 units in 1347. "We know the good sense and the good heart of the American people well enough to be sure of their desire to do the fair and just thing by the ex-service men and women," Small said. "That is why we arc sure the public will back this regulation." Small said the program would be administered on a local level. Citizens committees have been set up in each community to screen ail building applications. Even if proposed projects arc found essential, every effort will be made to defer them as long as possible. FHA will automatically approve all applications for veterans housing. Priorities assistance for materials will be granted only for veterans and a few "critical" other classes of essential construction. Thus, all permits to build under the order will not necessarily carry priorities assistance. Barrier Removed The order had been delayed because CPA had no funds to put into operation. That barrier was removed when congress passed the Mead Resolution permitting the National Housing Administration to set aside specific funds for lhe program. Specifically the order requires government permission to start a construction or repair job above these limits: Houses. including farmhouses and residential garages. $400. Hotels, resorts, apartment houses, and residential buildings to be occupied by more than five families, Sl.OOO. Commercial or service establishments such as offices, stores, garages, theaters, warehouses, and gas service stations. Sl.OOO. Churches, hospitals, schools, pub- lice buildings, and charitable institutions. Sl.OOO. Factories, lumber camps, commercial airports, piers, railroad "" buildings. research laboratories, motion piclurc sels, utility structures including telephone and telegraph, and oil. gas and petroleum refining and distribution buildings $15,000. Other buildings not previously covered, $200. The order defined a "job" as l 'ic entire cost of the construction an d repair work as estimated at Hie time it begins. It includes labor, value of new mechanica equipment, fixtures and material' incorporated into the building, and contractor's fees. There Is no limit on the number of jobs which may be .started within the exemption limit, but each must u e separate and complete in itself. For example, a $2,000 repair .lob on a store cannot be divided Into two separate Jobs to come within the $1,000 ex- eninlion. Tlio order docs not cover the Co/.

School Census Shows Decrease Nicholson Appeals For Co-Operation In Listing Children A large decrease hi the number of eligible school children in the I!ly- thcvlllc School District Is shown In the figures compiled to tlatc In the 1946 school census. W. B. Nicholson, superintendent of schools, said today. The number at this time Is several hundred short of the total number enumerated In 1044. However, school enrolments show an Increase over the past year. This Indicates that there arc even more children living In thc district than in 1914. Mr. Nicholson called attention to the great importance of having every eligible child enumerated. The state bases Its apportionment of school funds upon the number of enumerated school children In each district. When a parent or guardian falls o give thc name of children to thc census taker, it means that he Is lenylng at least $15 per year to the April.

Gromyko officially notified the^ll-natlon council th'at a Soviet-Iranian agre«- mcnt on removal ,of Russian troops from Iran hue! been reached. Secretary of Slat* f-m.»s f. Byrnes, who came lujre to'conduet thc American side of the debate, snapped back'at once: "If there has been an agreement we certainly want to hear .that fact from thc Iranian government. We must give Iran a chance to say U an agreement has been reached." Sir Alexander Cadogan, the British representative, strongly supported Byrnes, and insisted that •'complete details" of tho agreement be submitted to the council. "If an agreement has been reached both parties should be, happy to come before Die council," Cadogan said. -:• He warned that the council must be fully acquainted with the text of the agreement because it was reached while Soviet troops were on Iran- Ian soil. The British position is that the council must be assured beyond any doubt that the agreement was nol extracted from tiny, backward Iran .by duress . on .the | part of her colossal neighbor, the Soviet. Union. Gromyko revealed that negotiations between Russia and Iran started on March 2—the date on which Russian troops were supposed to have been out of Iran under the 1942 Tripartite Treaty. But he did not give any details beyond the statement made by Moscow radio Sunday that all Russian troops would be out of Iran within five or six -weeks.
