Alaskan Railroad It Possibility WASHINGTON, Oct. 26: m — President Truman signed today a bill which may lead to an eventual railroad link between the United States and Alaska. The legislation authorizes him to enter Into an agreement with Canada for a survey to determine the best route for such a link. There now Is a 1.100-mile gap between Canada's railroad system and the government-owned Alaska railroad. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee reported the railroad link Is needed because present water and highway routes are inadequate to serve Alaska.

Five of the ?ight are required to be on hand :o constitute a quorum. A petition' riled by the Blythe- vllle .Heal Estate Board has been before the council since June. Last night's session marked the third time action on it has been delayed. Arguments by spokesmen for the rclators and for Dud Cason Post 24 of the American Legion, which oppose decontrol, have been heard on two previous occasions. Members of both Ihe Real Estate Board and the Legion were present last night. Aldermen present were Jodie L. Nabers, W. C. Catcs, Jlmmlc Sanders and Rupert Crafton. Absent were Harry Taylor, Louis Nash, Leslie Moore and J. Wilson Henry. Two Decontrol Methods Possible Opinion in Blytheville appears fairly evenly diverted and the council members know that any action they take on the Issue will bring criticism. Some feel the council Is being asked to remedy a situation created by Congress and hence an unfair burden on the aldermen. Rents can now be decontrolled by two methods. Local governing bodies can vote to decontrol their municipalities. Or ;he controls can be lifted by petitioning the federal housing expediter.

Mr. Truman had asked Congress not only to raise minimum pay to 75 cents an hour, but to broaden coverage of the present law. Congress met the president's request for a 75-cenfc minimum, but It -narrowed the lira's coverage instead of broadening it.. At present about 22,600.000 workers goal they had arc protected by the statute. The House voted to exclude about 1,005.000 of those, and the Senate only about 200,000. The narrowing of coverage results mainly Irom a new definition of the word "produce" in the law. At present the act applies to workers, among others, who are "necessary lo the production of goods moving In Interstate commerce. The House changed that phrase to "Indispensable to," and It figured that would take around 1,005,000 workers out from under the wajc- lour provisions. , In conference, a Senate-House committee substituted "directly essential to" for "indispensable to." rhe committee members said the change would mean fewer workers excluded than the House voted.

He said Britain wants to be able to afford & high standard of living "not through the charity of some friendly people, but because we can and do produce enough currently to supply all our own wants." Problem* Listed Cripps said the "most acute of our own and the world's post-war economic problems has been thai of the dollar-sterling trade." "We still have a gap which Is being filled by Marshall aid and up till the date of devaluation it was also being filled by a. henvy drain on our reserves is wtjl," Cripps said. Britain devalued the pounds from $4.03 to $2.80 Sept. 18. The government sought to increase sales of British goods In dollar areas oy knocking down their high prices. Britain spent $1,600,000.000 last year In Importing raw materials, it slashed dollar buying for the remainder of this year to an annual rate of $1.200,000.000. See End of Aid "What Is to happen when Marshall aid comes to an end?" asked Cripps. "How then are we lo get cotton, non-ferrous metals- and other raw materials anl foodstuffs without which much of' our production must stop?" Cripps said there Is no short cut to filling the dollar gap. "There Is only one thing that can do It," he said, "with the full help of our American and Canadian friends on the other side of the Atlantic, and that Is by our own effort. And by that I mean the individual effort of every person In our country." With 393 of the 640 seats In the House. Labor Is expected to weather this lalcst parliamentary storm.
