WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3, 1945 CAN EXPECT DIFFERENCES , Won't Be Reconciled at "Big 3" Meeting ' Washington, () ~ Diplomats here settled down Wednesday for a continuous give and take among the major allies on postwar Europe, to last long after the shooting has stopped. President Roosevelt set the stage for numerous compromises when he offered little nope that allied differences can be reconciled at his forthcoming meeting with Premier Stalin and Prime Minister Churchill. The allies have a good set of principles, he said, but the practical problem is how to apply them to every hill and valley. The president said you do the best you can. Mr. Roosevelt not only agreed with reporters that differences exist, but emphasized he expected them to continue in one form or another. Earlier, B r i t i s h Ambassador Lord Halifax had pointed up the many questions on which the allies still have stormy sailing by stating that he and Secretary of State Stettinius are seeking better means of exchanging information among Britain, the U. S. and Russia. . The president minimized difficulties of consultation, presumably looking forward to his meeting with Churchill and Stalin due early: in February. He refused to say flatly whether a date already has been set, declaring that whether Stettinius is to accompany him known only after the meeting. This was taken as indicating that the 3 chiefs of state will meet secretly, as at Teheran, and release the'news of their conference after it has ended. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Grind Movies as Congress Opens Session By FBEDERICK C. OTHMAN Washington, (U.R--The house of representatives looked like a Hollywood : sound stage set Wednesday on the opening of the 79th congress, with cameras grinding floodlights reflecting on bald spots and a genuine movie'queen in the cast. Most of the lights and the eyes of congressmen, old and new alike focused on her--Helen Ganagar Douglas, movie actress, wife o Actor Maj. Melvyn Douglas an newly elected representative from the_fHn capital. She was. strikini m a svelte.blacie dress,- wittrchaU white face arid crimson lips", as she.sat far to the right on th democratic side and looked puzzled at the chatter which made the vast chamber sound like a crowded cocktail lounge. Directly opposite her on the re publican side was congress' oihe; glamor gal, Clare Bopthe Luce o Connecticut. Ladies in the galler ies looked over both the beautifu congresswomen and conclude! that Mrs. Lnce on opening da) was the fanciest looking. She wore a black suit, a white blouse with a drawstring at the neck. -A splashy red flower on ncr shoulder and a small black velvet bow. in her blond curls. The other feminine legislator had to take back seats, sartori ally speaking, even though Edith Nourse ,Hogers of Massachusetts showed up, usual, in an over sized purple ' orchid and Emil Taft Douglas of Illinois smella beautiful in a gardenia corsage. The mere men on the floor, wit! a few exceptions such as Rep Adolph Sabath of Illinois, lookec like congressmen, mostly bald mostly a little wrinkled, am y.ostly grey faced under the glar of the movie lights. Sabath wa a picture of legislative splendc in a wing collar, wide-striped am puffy necktie, long tail coat, an razor-creased striped pants. ·The freshmen, including Wil liam J. Gallagher, the ex-stree sweeper from Minneapolis, cam m. early, found seats where they could tear, and joined with th chaplain in reciting t h e Lord' prayer; a few mumbled, bu mostly they seemed to remember the words. The old-timers, o sophisticates, waited as. usua until the praying was over am then bolted in through the swing ing doors for a fest of handshak ing, backslapping and loud greet ings, until the decibel dials of th broadcasters shoycd up to th danger point. The clerk banged his mapl S^ve) and banged it some mor until his arm was tired. Then th house of representatives got flow to the formalities of swearing 1 new members and electing speaker to steer them through th legislative shoals of the next years. The yak, beast of burden i Tibet, gets do\vn icy mountai. slopes by drawing its hoofs to gether and sliding always landin rightside up at the bottom. ADY'S WATCH SHOP 19 West State Phone 88 GREASE COLLECTION--Navy salvage for the first 9 months of 1944 is at the annual rate of 5.70 pounds a man, or almost 4 times the per capita fat turn-in by civilians.

FGG EXONERATED IN HOUSE PROBE Find "No Pressure" in Radio Station Sale Washington, (S) --- A special house committee reported Thursday it found nothing basically wrong with operations of the FCC or its handling of the case af radio station \VMCA in Ne%v York. The committee, headed by Rep. Lea (D.-Cal.), was created 2 years ago to investigate the federal communications commission. It filed its final report just 'before midnight Wednesday night, when the committee itself ceased to exist. It was a split report, the 3 democratic members signing the majority version and each of the 2 republicans submitted separate minority statements. ; ' While taking note o f : "differences of opinion" among FCC members, the committee said these were not "a matter of condemnation" and "an honest difference of opinion as to public administration is and may well be of useful service." The majority report was signed by Hepresentative Lea: Hart (D.- N. J.), and Priest (D.-Tenn.). Minority reports were filed bj' Representative Miller (R.-Mo.) and Wigglesworth (R.-Mass.). Of the WMCA case, 'the majority said it found no evidence that Donald Flsmm, former owner, had sold it to Edward J. Noble, one time" assistant secretary of commerce," under "pressure, coercion, or duress." Flamm contepded ht sola the station for less than be could have obtained because of fear that he would lose his license if he did not seil. "The general allegations to the effect that the white house had anything to do in pressuring Flamm into selling his station to Noble is wholly, without foundation in fact," the majority said. The committee added that it found "nothing to censure" in the conduct of Thomas G. Corcoran, former white house aide, in connection with the WMCA transaction, and ."nothing to censure in the conduct of Mr. Edward J. Noble." Manly Baby Looks Like It's First A 5-pound, 13Vz-ounce daugh ter born at 5:35 a. m. on Jan. 1 a Mercy hospital to Mr. and Mrs Roger Dale Evans of Manly Wednesday looked like Masoi City's 1945 New Year.'s baby.

So far, however the Evans baby, who has beer named Betty Lou, is the 1st re ported within the Mason Cit limits in 1945. Eisenhower Confident of '45 Victory London, (U.PJ--Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower said Wednesday he was confident 1945 would bring the allies victory and peace in Europe. His prediction was contained in an exchange of New Year's messages with Marshal Sir Bernard L. Montgomery, who was reported in British and neutral .circles to be slated for appointment as Eis enhower's deputy in over-all command of allied ground forces on the western front. Montgomery sent the "best wishes and sincere hope" of the British empire forces under his command that 1945 ''may see for you and the allied team a great victory." "I want to assure you of the personal devotion and loyalty of myself and all those under my command," Montgomery said. "We will follow you anywhere." Eisenhower replied: "I send you and all the forces under your command my best wishes for the new year, as well as my profound gratitude for your great services during the year just past. "In full knowledge of your continued loyalty and devotion, I am confident that 1945 will be for us a year of victory and will bring us peace. "Good luck to you 1 ."

Farmers Should Order Machinery Repairs Now Ordering repair parts for farm machines and scheduling major repair Jobs with local service shops should be one of the first items for attention on 1945 calendars, according to Norton Ives, extension agricultural engineer at Iowa State college. He warns that Iowa farmers cannot afford to-delay Ives points out that the small amount of new machinery to be released will have to replace equipment whicli absolutely must be junked. He cites the December war production board report that production of the 20 most Important farm machines was behind schedule for the 4 months ending October 31. Production of planters was even less than 50 per cent of quota. The same was true of manure spreaders; small deficiencies were reported for other implements Every effort will be made io speed up manufacture of farm machinery Ives says, but he warns that farmers should not hope for a miracle. Instead of hoping, they should order parts, schedule repairs and do as many minor repair jobs as possible to relieve skilled mechanics of a lot of little tasks.
