McClellan snid the world is now going through a period "fraught with many dangers and with a peace — it it can be called peace — thai may be ol only temporary duration."

Tiie !94T samples were very uniform in staple length, as 94.4 per cent were from one Inch to one and one-sixteenth inches Inclusive, Mv. { Bilbiey stated. As one measure of Police uniformity, the one variety communities should, in normal years, have 08 »rr cent or better of their cotton in five staple lengths.

Arkansas' average for the same yeur was better with 89 per cent and Mississippi County'.'; average is still better with 91.7 per cent In five stap'e lengths. The proportion of these samples teduced in grade because of rough preparation was only six-tenths of one per cent, the lowest on record, Mr. liilbrcy stated. In 1946 nil of Arkansas' cotton averngcd 11.2 per cent reduced one grade due" to preparation and that same year Mississippi County's percentage only 3.6. "Tills is imr of the highest nnm- | group."

Edward Murray Unitert Press Staff Correspondent ROME. March 19. <UP>—Hi>al political rallies of 10,003 clnmoriur. communists and Fascists in the Piazza Venezia broke up without violence today when a flying .squadron of 250 mobile guards roared into the square to reinforce police guards. The election campaign truce among the politic;!: parties tottered dangerously for a time as tlie Communist and Fascist crowds, pathcrin^ 100 yards apart, shouted and Jeered at. each other. The meetings were two of a dozen political rallies scheduled 1:1 Roinu today, with an expected at- tcndniicc of 103.0;o. The Piazza Vcnezia gatherings of Communists and the Italian Social movement or Fascist group broke up about the time five truck-loads ot Fascist-Inclined youths arrived, in the big National smiare. Tlie youths were singing Nationalist songs, and the Communisls scattered through the square began shouting at them. The argument was warming up when police Jeeps swarmed into the square. Luigi Longo. Italy's No. 2 Communist, lold the Leftist crowd that American aid for Italy "includes American rnnchines and arms unloaded here to be used by Italians against Italians. This kind of aid serves to prepare new wars. 1 know thnt all our falhcrs and mothers are hostile to Hits kind ot help." As the Parliamentary election campaign entered its final month Communist-led printers of Turin's' eight newspapers went on strike. The walkout came 24 hours belore a meeting in that Leftist stronghold of Count Carlo Sforza and Georges Bidatilt, the Italian and French foreign ministers, to siffn an agreement on a customs union. The strike, If it continues, would keep news of the Franco-Italian meeting from the voters of the Industrial area. Communist newspapers and campaign speakers seized on President Truman's speech as political ammunition. They came up with the .slogan, "Truman speaks like Hitler." The communist newspaper Unita banned the slogan over a picture of smiling Henry A, Wallace with a full report on Wallace's speech in which he said that tlic Titmnn addrc-ss "threatened the life ot every human being." The slogan "Truman speaks like I Hitler" was launched by Lcftwlni; Socialist Leader Pietro Ncnni In -i speech last night. Other Communist speakers used it at a Homo mnss meeting this morning and Com- , , •fnuuchfen toil 4 p«tUnc down dU- tributlon systcnis. B. A.
