FRIDAY, MAY 14, 1948 ' (AMC.T COURIER HEWS Bigger Imports Of Cotton Sought ^Knurton Proposes •'Removal of Quotas On Foreign Crops WASHINGTON. May 13. (UP)— Rep. Harold Knutson, R., Minn., proposed today that Congress remove the import quotas on all type" of foreign-produced cotton. He Introduced a bill which also recommended that a straight Import duty of 10 per cent be charged on shipments of cotton to this country. There Is no Import duty now on short staple cotton, but there Is » duty of three and one-half cents a pound on long staple. Total imports of cotton now are limited to 48.000 bales a year, according to Congressional tariff experts. The 10 pel' cent duty proposed by Kmitson would be figured on the foreign value of the cotton. Retaliation Seen While Knulsoi) did not say 30, his move apparently was to retaliate against Southern Democrats who led the fight for repeal of federal taxes on oleomargarine. •Bnutson opposed the tax repeal, "rafc oleo repeal legislation has passed the House and Is pending in the Senate. Knutson said in a statement the purpose of his bill Is "to lower the exorbitant costs of cotton and cotton products." "Embargoes are unAmertcan ind constitute the worst possible form of trade barriers," Knutson said "And I call attention to the fact that the State Department has repeatedly warned Congress that such types of restrictions are fruitful sources of war and ill feeling among nations." World's Hungry Children Get Food Relief Under Stars and Stripes and U.N. Banners Textile Industry Must Live Down Wage Reputation SHAWNEE-ON-DELAWARP. Pa.. May 14. i UP)—The National Textile Seminar yesterday was told that the industry "must Jive doivn Its reputation for low wages" and attract competent workers In the 5'OUilRer age groups. "Employers can no longer ve!y on immigrants from Canada, the West tjtyes and K\irope, or on Innocents •mi the [arms," Emil Rieve, pres- 'ident of the CIO Textile Worker* Union, said. Rieve said that the industry not only must live down its reputation for poor pay, but "poor working conditions, poorly constructed and unsanitary mills, and general lack, of''concern for its workers' welfare." He -pom ted out thgfc ."fortunately a good start has been made in this direction. Textile wages are far above old levels, however, they are still below the national average-" Another speaker said activity in the Industry will continue for an Indefinite period. Children's Crusuile BuiliU Friemlg for America Midst Chaotic Conditions Abroad NEW YORK, May 6— You could call it star-spangled milk powder. It's served under the Stars and Stripes. It comes from the U.S.A. And wherever it goes, to hungry children all over the world, it brings a star-spnngled brightness to their eyes. Many of the children in Poland, Czechoslovakia, Italy, France, Finland, Chin^, never saw milk of any kind before their generous friends in America, through the voluntary foreign relief agencies, sent them the stuff that buiids bones and bodies — and friendship. Today, millions of kids have a chance to recover from rickets, from tuberculosis, from the gnawing pangs of hunger with which they have lived all their lives, because Americans are sending them rcd-while-and-blue calories and kindness, In the name of the Crusade for Children of American Overseas Aid-United Nations Appeal for Children, Americans arc subscribing $60,000,000 this spring to finance the foreign relief activities of 25 voluntary American agencies and to replenish the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund. Jules Perlstein, recently returned from a two-year United Nations mission in 'Poland, re ports a neeU for more food and medicine on the part of millions of children in Europe. He urged generous contributions to the campaign to feed the hungry children of the world. Recipients Informed The children, he emphasized, know where the foot) comes from, and the governments help to keep them informed. lie reported that it is a definite policy of the Polish government to give widespread publicity to the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund. Fosters at feeding points explain the nature of UNICEF, to which the United Slates is a large contributor. In addition to press and radio cooperation, teachers, doctors and parents tell the children that food is coming to them through the United Nations, for which the NOTTCr Notlc* t« hereby ilven that lh» undmlgntri will within (hi time fixed by l»w apply to the CommK- flottfr or Revtmtfs of the Stale of AiV«ns«s for R permit to itll bf«r it ri>l»ll at No. 1 Main St., Armor«l, Mississippi county.

Mr. Perlstein also gave assurance that all food provided through UNICEP is accounted for from the moment it arrives. "Our Mission knew where ev- ory ounce of food went from the moment it entered Poland until a child ate it." Mr. Perlstein declared. The bulk of UNICEF food shipments are ol dry skim milk, which is valuable to hungry children abroad because of its protective food elements. It is estimated that 230,000,000 children in Europe and Asia do not get enough food for normal health or ,;rowlh.

DUD CASON POST No. 24 By Marshall Blaekard Subscribed and sworn to before me this 13 day of May, 1948. Mrs. Marshall Blackard, (SEAL1 Notary Public. My Commission expires March 9, 1949. BT Geraldine Hill) (l/nitfd Press Staff Correspondent) LONDON, May 14. (UP)—Blonde Lana Turner, who ourtaged the British press Wednesday night, charmed it yesterday—even though she kept newspapermen waiting 43 minute.5 to see her. She did it with a big smile, a few shots of .Scotch anri soda, and an apparent willingness to answer as many questions and pose for as many pictures as anyone wanted. The performance wns a complete reversal of WednesdRy night, when she staged what one 'British newspaperman called "probably the strangest and most humiliating press conference yet held in Britain." Then she kept newspapermen waiting more than an hour, finally lost all but two o[ them in a chase through the corridors of the swank Savoy Hotel, and then didn't answer any questions, closing out the conference in about two minutes flat. Yesterday the "Blonde Bombshell" agreed to meet the press again at the Empire Theater. The newspapermen assembled, and then waited. They smoked snd talked and waited. Several were about ready to leave when Lana finally arrived, 43 minutes late, on the arm of her fourth husband, Henry J. (Bob> Topping, the millionaire with whom she is honeymooning here. She was no less than delectable in a gray sharkskin suit, with a sable thrown over one shoulder, and a white carnation in her buttonhole. Topping was wearing a blue pin-stripe suit, and he had a carnation, too, "Please excuse our being late," Miss Turner said, with a big smile, while the reporters were still gaping. "We're a litlle mixed up on the time, and -so on." One newspaperman wanted to argue a little about. lust night's fiasco. Lana dazzled him with a special smile, and told him: , "Really, I can't just talk to one ; man all the time, can I?" A photographer moved In close for an angle shot, nnrt the blonde star said laughingly: "Do you have to get that close this early In the morning? I look awful." It was well after noon, and the altitude of tile newspapermen left little doubt how she looked.
