States Rights Fight Ready For New Start WASHINGTON, Nov. 12. (API- President Truman's new appeal for enactment of civil rights laws fired a slow-burning fuse which appears certain to touch off another hot debate In Congress next year. The verbal fireworks are expected to start in the Senate soon after the lawmakers return in January. The Democratic leadership has said It will try for a vote then on perhaps the most controversial of all the civil rights measures—a bill to create a fair employment practices commission. Mr. Truman made it clear In an Armistice Day speech yesterday that he hasn't given up his fight for the program which split the Democratic party in 1948 and cast him the electoral votes of four Southern states. Civil rights laws are needed to overcome "discrimiantion and injustice" in the United States, the President told the National Conference of Christians and Jews at a meetin here yesterday. Nearly all Southern Congress members have fought the civil rights program. Dixie senators have said Witntly they intend to launch another filibuster when the fair employment bill comes up. At the start of the first session of the 81st Congress last January they kept a talkathon going for days when the Democratic leaders tried to push through a change in Senate rules aimed «t making it easier to limit debate. The leaders finally had to abandon the fight for the rule they wanted and accept Instead one sponsored by the Southerners and a group of Republicans.

Yugoslavia Ends Pact with Albania Friendship Treaty Scrapped; Policies Of Hostility Blamed By Alex Singleton BELGRADE, Yugoslavia, Nov. 12 (rt>- Yugoslavia scrapped her treaty of friendship with Albania today and charged that country with acts of hostility she said were provoked by Soviet Russia. It marked the first time Premier Marshal Tito's independent Communist government has taken the initiative in breaking off friendship pacts with Cominform countries. Previously Russia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria all cast aside those tics with Yugoslavia In steps verging on a break in diplomatic relations. .The note—more than 3,000 words long—was handed'to the Albanian legation here at noon. : .":"' It listed in detail this country's accusations of "hostile" acts on the part of Albania, but emphasized at one point that the Tirana govern- ment'had been -'pushed into its policy of open hostility and violation" T>f" the treaty*by. Russia and the other Comlufprni countries. • "Tile Eastern European countries headed by the U.S.S.R., have sacrificed the interests of Albania solely in order to "realize their own dark plan against Yugoslavia," the note said. It concluded: "The Yugoslav government, despite the fact that' it is not indifferent to the impediment of the independence and integrity of Albania and despite the fact that the stympathies of the government and the people of Yugoslavia for the Albanian people continue unswervingly and sincerely, states that It considers itself freed of obligations arising from the treaty of friendship and . mutual help which was concluded between Yugoslavia and Albania on-July 0, 1917."

Hljjhtowtr WASHINGTON, Nov. 12. W-Commuiilst trealmenl of tl can consul general at Mukden has dealt a slmrp new setback munlst China's chances of obtaining American recognition in the foreseeable future. + ; __^ Top State Department officials arc privately "burned up" at the way in whicli local RUt-oritles at.

Communist Ifeaders Ward has been held In Jail at Mukden since October 24. Two American and two European members or his staff have been held with him.

Edmund Clubb, had sent a letter to Gen. chou-En-Lai the CoriYnunlst foreign minister, demanding Ward's release and'ask- ing - information^' about hlm:»< The department aaid'that no reply had been received. • .. , Two Courses Open Officials are now confronted with the problem of what to do next in the case. Two courses apiicnrcd open as scpculative possibilities. One is to address the strongest possible protest to the communist lenders at Pelplng. state Department officials reportedly feel'that Ward, an official of the American government, has been treated In a "barbaric" manner though they have up to now avoided saying so publicly. ; Another move would be to bring the case before the United Nations. The Chinese Communists, with Soy- let backing, ave expected at some point to make a bid for the u.' N. seat now filled by the Chinese Nationalist government. Whatever the specific steps which may be taken, the attitude of Individual policy makers here toward the whole question ot recognition Is becoming more and more unfavorable. No Hurry Expected These officials have felt for several months that the American government shoult not be in nny hurry to recognize the Chinese Red regime. At the same time they have expected that eventually recognition probably should be granted particularly if and when the Chinese Nationalist government ceases to exist. The British, whose officials In China have ben much more favorably treated by the Chinese Communists, take an entirely dlftercnl attitude toward recognition. Diplomatic authorities predict that the British government will establish reglar diplomatic relations with Pe'l- plng, probably by the cud of the year. Britain's commercial 'merest In China arc roughly estimated to be about 10 times United States. those of the 732 Removed Safely after Ship Hits Rock ACAPULCO, Mexico, Nov. 12—</P) —The luxurious yacht Corsair, O ucc the private ship of banker J Pjcr- ixm Morgan, struck the rocks and went aground early today In Acapulco JInruor.

United States Tightens Export Controls Soured RclaHons With Russia Bring Moves to Prevent Sending Materials Into 1837 By James Marlow WASHINGTON, NOV. 12. w — The government this week tightened lust a little more its control jn anything which might help Russia or its allies re-arm or make war. This is how the co-itrol grew. After the war, while relations with Russia still were prcvty good, tlie only real clamps the government put on goods shipped abroad were on those needed here because they were scarce. By March, 1948, most of the scarcities had disappeared but relations ith Russia had soured. This country didn't want Russia or the other Communist-controlled countries In Eastern Europe, part >f the ovlcl bloc, to receive American goods which might help the bloc get ready for war. The government — through the State Department and the Cotn- merce Department—did two things: Th« Stole Department tool? control over wh»t Items of direct rnili- j gasoline lary aid, like arms or ammunition could be shipped anywhere. And the Commerce Department drew up a list of items which might be of direct military help to the Soviet bloc—like aviation or certain machinery. Export Licenses Required This special list of Industrial goods then could not be shipped even to Europe without a license by the Commerce Department, an export license, It was called. The thinking was: Those Items, If shipped to western Europe, might eventually be re-shipped to the Soviet bloc. So Commerce had final say on those specially listed Items intended for any place in Europe. This didn't mean that any item on the list could.Vl be sent to Europe. But the Commerce Department would dclde whether to forbid Its shipment, by refusing « 'license. Or just let a limited amount go over- ,«^°ni tlme to tlme sln « March, l»*8, the commerce Department h»i revised this special list. But as time went on anotlicr problem developed. Suppose a certain kind of machinery—on the list oi goods which needed an export license If sent to Europe—could be sent to Latin America without a license and In unlimited amounts. Then suppose it was re-shipped from there to the Soviet bloc. That left a loophole. So a couple of weeks ago the government began putting world controls on somj goods which, If they reached the Communists, might help them prepare for war. Goods on this special world-control list needed approval of the Commerce Department before they could be shipped anywhere. Here are some of Ihe Items on that world list: ; ' Arranjcmenl ts Voluntary i Aviation gasoline, special puncture-proof Inner-tubes for tires, some kinds of electrical generators. machinery for refining ell. So far se'vc bcsn talking about. fiaUhed product* lilu machinery Red-Dominated Areas •ncl oil. They were the result of American brains. But what of unfinished products of American brains like plans for machinery, or technical Information? If sent to the Soviet bloc, or to any place whicli might re-ship them there, In ti mo they might be used against us. So this week the government asked people who Ere thinking of ex- poillng such Information to any place—if it might possibly Involve this country's security—to do this: To hold off until they get an opinion from the Commerce Department on whether such information might help the Communists. ThLi arrangement Is voluntary. But It's one more step In trying to keep Russia from getting militarily strong with American help. None of this story deals with any secret Information which Is classified as secret by tills government. Anyone trying io send out lliat kind of Information would find himself In trouble, Chicks Smother Brinkley Passing Attack; Win 40-6 87 Georce Clark .

The Tigers gave Ihe highly partisan crowd one of the wildest exhibitions of aerial antics ever watched here. They came forth with a tailback by the noino of Partee that had n Charley Gihner-llke arm and they made no attempt to hide it. Tlie Bengals executed 53 plays and •H of them were Parlce-thrown passes. They tried Blytheville's forward wall only six time:, and punted on the other tliree. 1'ariee Tries -II I'.isses OI the 44 passes thrown by Par- tec, he hit his mark 1C limes for a 105-yartI gain and one touchdown. But eight were intercepted by Bly- Uievlllc backs,.one for a touchdown nnri four more scl up scores. The Chicks used the air as their innln line of travel, too, reversing their usual procedure of relying almost solely on power to move. Halfbacks Charley Lutes and Mel Hay tossed 10 times, completed five, three of them for touchdowns, for a net gain of ]BU ynrds. The Chicks last no time In get- Ing scoring underway. They kicked off first, to the Tigers' 10 and halfback Culbreth returned the gome opening boot to the 15.

E. B. Gee'» kick from'placement was blocked.-. That Interception failed to discourage the strong hearted Parfee however. After the klckoff he opened up again. Starting at his own 25 Partee completed four out of eix aerials to ends Mason and Harrison, for three first, downs to. the Blythe- vlllc six for the Tigers' first" deep penetration. But reserve fullback Louis Anderson put a stop to ths threat with a fumble recovery at tlie six. The chicks moved the bull out to mldfleld on two consecutive first downs but were forced to punt. Taking over on their own 25 the Tigers again took' to the air but after one completion three aerials fell harmlessly to the ground and Mason punted. Lutes took the punt on the Tigers' 48, picked up his blocking nicely and raced to the 10 before being brought down by the- last Brlnklcy defender. Penalty Nullifies Touchdown On the next play Lutes circled end to score but a 15-yard holding penalty nulllitcd the pl»y. At the 25 halfback Roger Lum lost two on n double reverse and then the Chicks opened their own aerial offensive. Halfback Mel Hal passed to end Marvin Hall who stepped out of bounds at the one after a fine catch and on the next pjay quarterback Buddy Dnnncr sneaked over guard to score. Gee kicked the extra point but a 13-yard Illegal use of the hands penalty nullified the point and his second kick, from 27 yards out, was blocked.
