Bitter Dispute Within Committee Probing FCC Rises to New Climax Washington, (U.R) -- The bitter dispute .within the special house committee investigating the federal communications commission reached a new climax Tuesday when its general counsel and 3 associates resigned with protests that the inquiry would bring congress only "shame and dishonor." In a bitterly critical letter to Chairman Clarence F. Ix:a, (D.- Cal.) general counsel Eugene L. Garey said lie and his aides were quitting-because Lea had "repeatedly ignored the mandate of the house, stymied ihe staff in its work and converted the investigating to a sheer whitewashing affair, wholly responsive to political pressures-'' "To such a patent fraud on the congress and the public I cannot and will not lend my aid," Garey declared. His 3 aides, Milton Mauser. Fred Walker' and Ambrose!. said they shared Carey's views. The resignations were an outgrowth of a decision by the committee's democratic m a j o r i t y , headed by Lea. to postpone hearings into the sale of radio station WMCA in New York.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT -^Here's it specific and practical use of the leftover kitchen fats women save in their kitchens. This army machine gun trainer, which pretty K._K. 0. Starlet Elaine Riley is sighting, is on display at the army ordnance exhibit at the Chrysler building in New York, and uses plastic bullets for practice. Fatty acids, derived from used fat, are necessary in the manufacture of these bullets, which makes the cost of firing the gun for practice negligible. If real ammunition were used, it would cost $180 a minute. Using these plastic- bullets, the trainee becomes accustomed to machine gun action and recoil. A phonograph inside reproduces realistic battle sounds while the gun is firing its plastic pellets. Howard J. Farrer Granted Divorce on Grounds of Cruelty Howard J.
