(m — About. 125 people from 40 sUU?s today began a three-day meeting *\ere to push for a union of MIC jJBeslern democracies. An Atlantic Wiion, they call 11. They'll go up to the capilol lo needle their representatives and senators to help them push, although a number alrrarly support them. And they'll swap on ho'.v to Ret more people back home interested. They've worked a number of id- au army for all the mimibcr nations. One Currency for AH Further, there'd be one currency for all the members, one postal system. Trade barriers, such as tariffs. would be wiped out. And so on. None of this can even get started unless Congress approves the resolution telling the President to stnrt the ball rolling. And there's no Indication Congress intends to do so. At. lensc, not this year. Crommclin Quits Navy to Enter Alabama Politics PENSACOI-A, Fi«., J«"« 1- <*)— The way has been cleared (or Navy Capt. John G. Crommelln, severe critic of Pentagon policies, to enter Alabama politico Papers were signed yesterday »t the Pensacoli Naval Air Station ending his active naval career. He had requsted retirement ending hts two decades ol active service. Crommelin. an outstanding World War II naval airman, announced recently he will be a eandldate for U. S. senator one an independent ticket in the November general elec , . Further, the union committee has run into a big stumbling block In the State Department: It has utged pas: publicity; parades, meetings; even household auctions to get pea- pie together. 125 visitors are members of what is called the Atlantic Union Committee. The committee claims a countrywide membership of '25.000 people. What they want is a union of the democratic nations under one central government. Owen J. Robciis, former supreme court justice, is president of the committee. Its two vice presidents are Will Clayton, former undersecretary of stale, and Robert P. Patterson former secretary of war Slrr-il Is Dirci'tor The board of directors includes C!?.rencc Streit. who has crusaded foi this idea for years. It, grew in his mind when he was a ncwsimpci-mnn in Geneva in IMS! and watched the Lcaeuc of Nations Capering to devote all his time lo | Ihpermc: to icvolc all his lime lo! the idea and in that year brousht out his book, still being reprinted, "Union Now." Congress not to bring up the resolution Why? For one thiiip. it says the American people are not uoa sufficiently Informed "on the Idea ai'rt what it Involves. What are some of the objections? It would mean the U.S., which has remained independent and free of any dictation from any other country, would have to Rive up a big part of its sovereignly, or independence, and abide by what the super- government decided: American business would be liurt if trade barriers \vcrr- wiped ont: and so on. The objectors, and there are plenty, have plenty of objections. Ion. Sen. Lister Hill won Democratic nomination in the May 2 primaries. Crommelin was outspoken in hi criticism of national defense pol icies last year during the Navy Mr povce row. He was (llrlouglwd y the Navy at half pay April because of his public expressions a ainst the place accorded the Nav; n the unification program. Arkansa? College To Move Location BATESVILE.

Group Wants One World What floes this committee wanl? I Is members s tress the y do not want a one-world government now. They say they want to start with a union of the democracies, with other nations admitted as they become democracies. The sponsors of this idra look i unon It as a necessary step to end (riction between the Western nations, bind them together, and. through their united strenptn. preserve not only pence mil democracy Flow would they gn about it-? Ti^ey want Congress to approve, a resolution, now pending In both houses, which would authorize President Truman to do this: Invite the democracies which sponsored tbe Atlantic Pact last yo^r—U.S.. Britain. Canada. France. Belgium. Netherlands, Luxembourg —to send delegates to s convention Any,other democracies which want^td to send delegates could. ^f »/>.-"i TWO Plans Sucecstcrl The delegates could do one of two L Just, sit around exchanging Ideas on how they felt about such i union and return home to see hov their people felt toward the idea If they found their people approved a second convention could be callec lo pet up the democratic union. 2..Or—these delegates at the firs meetinp could, if they agreed OH th Idea, set up the plans lor this super government. It wouldn't come inU existence, of course, until It wa submitted to their own people fo approval, A country whose ,peopl rejected it, wouldn't join, fin this country, for instance, (h American people themselves. Jnsl Congress, undoubtedly woul have to approve before the U £ would Join such a single, over-a government.) How would such a union «?overr men I. look? Perhaps like this: would have a President, two housi of Congress, a supreme court. Th would he the supreme governmen Each of the member nations woi vntfl on the President and elect th Congress. The citizens of all th union nations would be citizens [lie one government. But, just as in the caso of the Mates, each member nation won keep Us own government, and mn be some troops, a sort nf milit while the union povernmrnt had Arkansas Dry Counties A/so 'No' Near Beer LITTLE ROCK, .lime 1.
