ASNE President Delays Action On McCarthy-Wechsler Spot NEW YORK H>) — Basil L.

Arkansas Bar Association To Get Integration Resolution LITTLE ROCK (&}— A resolution seeking to have the Supreme Court re-solicit votes on integration , of Arkansas lawyers into one group will be presented to the Bar Association of Arkansas when it meets in i Hot Springs tomorrow.

Nora, estranged from her second lusband. crooner Dick Haymes, claims Flynn hasn't made a payment since last December for the upport of their two children, DIedre and Rory. "I think the children are entitled o the use of their father's home," she told a reporter. "I don't know Just how long we'll stay there." Flynn and his present Wife, Patrice Wymore, are now in Europe. Clara Burton founded the first chapter of the American Red Cross on Aug. 22, 1881. I am sure they will now if given another opportunity—that the vote will be 2 to 1 against integration of the bar," CofJeit said. The Supreme Court last month handed down an order which would force all practicing Arkansas lawyers to join one state bar association. Earlier this week the Crittenden County Bar Association asked and received permission from the Court to file arguments ag?' ;t the order. The Association claims the Court's order is unconstitutional. Approval Predicted for Bill Giving Ike Power to Freeze Prices, Wages WASHINGTON tfl — Senators Capehart (R-Ind) and Maybank (D-SC) today predicted Senate approval of a bill to .permit the President to freeze prices, wages and rents for 90 days in a grave national emergency. Capehart Is chairman of the banking committee, which wrote the bill, and Maybank is the senior Democratic member. Their predictions were made in separate in- ,erviews. Both agreed that the toughest challenge to the committee's measure is an amendment by Sen. Byrd (D-Vn). This would permit the President to slap on the freeze only if Congress had passed a declaration of war or a resolution specifically authorizing the freeze. Republican Leader Taft of Ohio said he may support Byrd's proposal. Nevertheless, Capehart ventured a prediction the amendment would be beaten. Supporters of the bill said the amendment would run counter to the main purpose of the freeze, which is to permit the President to move at once to halt panic-induced runaway prices in a war crisis. The debate on the economic controls bill began yesterday and is expected to continue several days. Besides the freeze section, it contains provisions to continue the the government's authority to allocate scarce materials beyond June 30.
