Official! of the two unions, rep- retentlnc some 225,000 rail workers, said they will meet with the National (Railway) Mediation Board to "try and bring about settlement." They said the carriers will be represented at Hie sessions. The union!—the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and the Order of Railway Conductors—are legally !ree to strike after Saturday. But W. p. Kennedy, president ot the trainmen, said "we won't consider a strike at this time. It will depend on the attitude of the railroads." jftfcowever, he added tnat "the Wfk of a strike hasn't been Jut •side, but a strike has not been put Into effect." Board's Plan Rejected Announcement of the delay of a strike followed a two-day meeting of 250 general chairmen of the two unions.-The chairman formally rejected a presidential fact-finding board's recommendation In the dispute. The board had turnec down the union's .request for a hour work week at 48 hours pay The chairmen termed the board's report the "most undemocratic, unfair and pro-management report in the history of the Railroad Labor Act." The formal rejection was telegraphed to President Truman. The board had proposed a 40-hou work week with an 18 cents hourly pay hike, for all yardworkers. The uniona' demand, would have amoun ted to a wage hike of about 3 centa an hour.

Marshall wanUs the collection of blood for peace and possible war expanded. The president of the American Red Cross said the blood Is needed to meet demands In civilian medic's! practice and to serve as a bulwark against a major disaster or national military emergency. Speaking ot a Harvard dinner last nle'it, the general said: "The possible need of blood for our military forces is no longer a vague, shadowy possibility. It Is « concrete fact." "A national emergency would call for quantities of blood beyond estimate," he said. "There is only one source—healthy American people. "And it must come voluntarily. Not even totalitarian states have ever been able to procure blood by government fiat. "Our people are always quick lo respond to an emergency. The difficulty lins been to make them recognize the emergency before it Is on us in full blast." The Heel Cross now collects about 12 per cent of all (he Wood used in the United states. The general snki that in case of an emergency It could increase its share of produc- tion four fold. George De Sylva, Composer Film Producer Dies HOLLYWOOD, July IS.

The fabulously successful producer of hit movies, plays and limes died yesterday of a heart condition at 54. New York born, he began composing while he was a ukulele- strumming California lifeguard. His melodies caught the ear of Singer Al Jolson, who took him east to the big time. Buddy wrote more than 500 songs, among them "Sonny boy."

IT'S OUR FAMILY'S WHISKEY, KEIGHBOR 06 Ma!& Home Cboki/nq! «/ Folks declare (hey never dreamed you could get so much Mildnes* and Tastiaess crowded into * bottle! RT PNTlEn BllfcNUKi) ffiing to 1 OU must understand, of course, that nothing in the world can tike the place of a beautiful ribbon of improved highway— —stretching so enticingly out into the open country, •nd all but beseeching you to come for a ride! But under the happiest auspices, yon will have to do much of your driving, for years to come, down roads and highways that leave something to Ire cksircd— » — and /low lucky you'll tc if you riiie them out in a 1950 Cadillac! In recent years, Cadillac has carried out a tremendous program of research and improvement to achieve a finer "rough-road" ride. The development work has covered steering, springs, shock absorbers, frame, wheels, tires, shackles—and all the engineering problems involved. Tn the 1950 Cadillacs, this great program has come to full fruition—and the results are simply a revelation. First, you get wonderful balance. The car "stays put" —and you have a reassuring feeling of stability, even when the going's uncommonly rough. And your ride is amazingly Itvel. You "float" over the bumps and the depressions, ever so gently. Only a road so bad that it deserves condemning can make itself obvious to either the driver or passengers. And, of course, the remarkable quietness, of both body and chassis, shows up most dramatically on the roughest roads'. For quality tells its finest story when the pressure is greatest. Why not come in and get acquainted with this wonderful car? We'd be happy to sec you any time.
