""Men are going to share more enerously in the wealth which ley produce," he said, in an ad- ress prepared for a meeting of he American Concrete institute. "They are going to use it for umanity as a whole, rather than or a small segment which maneu- ers its way to power." Kaiser said he also believed hat "\ve are not going back to ery much in the way of eco- omic procedures with which we : ere accustomed in the years be- ore the war. Neither the radical or the reactionary are going to -in. The mass of mankind feels more keenly than it thinks, and oday it feels the upsurge of the esire to possess and enjoy the ood things of life."

Governor of Oregon Finds Grief in Pig By JERRY HANNIFIN United Press Staff Correspondent Salem, Ore., (U.B--The prize pig which Gov. Earl Snell won from Gov. Dwight Griswold of Nebraska last fall in a gentlemen's wager during the third war loan drive is Winging gray hair to the executive head. In fact, the porker started right off being a headache. Oregon's first family couldn't have it butchered for available bacon and pig's knuckles because the OPA would take all the Snells' red stamps. The prospect of eating only ham all winter, however well done, also stopped the butcherin» plans. '·'Today Fcan see eye to eye with Oregon's pig growers," the governor said. "We have a lot in common, and I understand better than ever before the problems Oregon farmers face. I, too, am a pig grower." The capitol newsnapennen's association, which had experience raisin? chickens, but none with Pigs, was unable' to sympathize with the governor's plight. "Aren't pigs able io take care of themselves pretty much?" a reporter asked. The governor lifted a pile of documents from his desk and handed them to the reporter. The top item was a mamphlet on "The Care and Feeding of Pigs." Beneath were half-a-dozen federal forms to be made out in quintupli- cate showing the pedigree of the hog to its third cousins and a statement of vaccination for hog cholera. In addition, there was a market report showing that there were too many hogs, anyway, and declaring something should be done about it. Governor Spell's pig has had the best in veterinary treatment, but somehow it caught hog dandruff. That isn't serious, but the porker acted shamed of it. "He's quite a sensitive animal," the governor explained. "You can see that there's a lot of hog-wash connected with pig raising." The city of Portland is ready to throw the governor's pig in the town bastille, or wherever it keeps pips who won't pay their rent. To boot, the pig has been accused of loud snoring and just plain smell- in;; op the Portland zoo. The city has slapped a lien on the animal because of the unpaid rent, and the other zoo denizens have developed nasty tempers because of the piggy smell. "Would one of yon gentlemen care for a pig as a birthday present? And don't forget, an Oregon pig was sold at $7 a hundredweight on the Portland market last week. How would you like a 1,000 pound pig?" the governor asked. ' Nobody answered. 1 Lonergan Murder Trial Adjourned in Uproar on Prosecution Demand .New York, (ff)--Wayne Lonergan's explosive murder-trial was adjourned in an uproar Thursday over a prosecution demand which Judge John J. Freschi said might result in a mistrial. In the stormiest session to date Assistant District Attorney Jacob Grumet demanded that the special jury panel be dismissed because of newspaper stories which he charged were inspired by defense counsel in after-court hours. Defense Attorney Edward Broderick had made a similar request at the opening of the trial Monday and Grumet asked that the jurist reopen the matter and reconsider the original request.
