1 18 - Harrbburg Telegraph. March 11, 1948 Highspire Bars! Heavy Trucks The borough of Highspire has imposed a two - ton limit on trucks using borough streets, and extra policemen have been put on duty in the borough to turn back all heavy vehicles attempting to use side streets during present construction work along the Harris - burg - Lancaster pike. William D. Ebersole, chairman of the borough street committee, said the action was taken after heavy trucks caused an estimated $2000 damage to High street this week, and caused some damage also to Market, Lumber and Ann streets in the borough. "The borough can't afford to let trucks tear up its side strets," Ebersole said, pointing out that the borough just last year had paid off a 25 - year bond issue for street improvement Many of these streets, he said, are of light con struction which cannot stand heavy traffic. Many trucks apparently have been avoiding the 21 - mile detour set up by the State Highway Department two weeks ago and have continued to use the regular high way through Highspire, aware that it was open to local traffic. On Tuesday night, however several trucks became blocked in the part of Second street in the borough where construction work is under way, whereupon other trucks were obliged to take to the side streets in order to avoid the tie - up. The regular detour set up two weeks ago by the State Highway Department avoids Highspire altogether, with southbound traffic diverted at Cameron and Paxton streets, Harrisburg, onto the back road to Middletown through Ober - lin. McCabe Probe To End Today Washington, March 11, (JP) Two Senate Banking Committee members said today they have little doubt Thomas B. McCabe will be confirmed as a Federal Reserve Board member. Senators Capehart (R - Ind) and A. Willis Robertson (D - Va) told a reporter they expect the committee to give McCabe a clean bill on the way he handled surplus property sales abroad. That has been the issue before the committee. Chairman Tobey (R - NH) saicj he hoped to wind up hearings to day on the nomination of the Pennsylvania industrialist who is President Truman's choice to succeed Marriner S. Eccles as board chairman. Tobey said he had two or three additional witnesses lined up for today's session he said he did not know how soon the committee would act. McCabe himself defended the record of his agency yesterday. Two former top Government officials urged confirmation of McCabe. They are Robert P. Patterson, former Secretary of War, and William L. Clayton, former Undersecretary of State. Both said they were in frequent contact with McCabe when he was in the Government. They said he did an excellent job. ALCOHOLICS CAN BE HELPED Get a box of Brown's Drink Treatment.

Inform ed government sources said today at a wave of Communist - in spired strikes is expected through out Austria next week. Informants said the Communists are expected to bring about work stoppages through groups similar to the "action committees" of Czechoslovakia. (In Czechoslovakia action com mittees were set up before and after the Communists gained con trol of the government. They are composed of strong party members. They have been given the job of purging r.atiohal life of opposition to the Communists.) Minister of Interior Oskar Hel - mer already has publicly warned the Communists that such groups are illegal and may be punished under Austrian law in certain circumstances. The executive committee of thei Austrian Trade Union Federation has told its members that anyone helping to establish such action committees will be expelled from the Federation. In rejecting a Communist demand for a general 25 per cent, wage increase, the committee instructed Austrian workers to strike only on orders from the Trade Union Federation. Chancellor Leopold Figl thanked the Federation for "coolness in the present critical situation." Renewed Communist activity in Austria appeared to many to be bringing the two major parties the Right Wing peoples party and the Socialists closer together. A public demonstration at which leaders of the two parties are to pledge their mutual support in the fight against Communism. is scheduled next week. tlx) i! fi Phont I DELIVERY SERVICE!

Weber, State Adjutant General, announced that authorization has been received to admit Negroes to the Pennsylvania National Guard for the first time in State history. Weber said the War Department has authorized the formation of two all - Negro battalions. He added one will be formed at Pittsburgh and the other at Philadelphia. "Orders to activate each battalion are expected to be issued the latter part of this month," he said. Negroes always have been prohibited from National Guard enlistments in the past. The wartime State Guard, however, had several Negro units. Weber said plans for organization of the Negro combat engineer battalions were discussed yesterday by himself and five Negro officers of the former Pennsylvania State Guard. "The five Negro officers unani mously agreed," General Weber said, "that they preferred all Negro organizations, rather than receiving Federal authority to enlist Colored troops with White outfits." Each of the new battalions will have a total strength of 533, in cluding 31 officers, three warrant officers, and 499 enlisted men. The battalions will be named the 644th Engineer Combat Battalion stationed in Philadelphia, and the 645th Engineer Battalion at Pittsburgh. Bids Asked Electric wire and cable costing .$1,400,000 and a $911,000 inventory of industrial equipment and supplies will be offered at sealed bid at War Assets Administration Customer Service Center, 1400 North Cameron street, to all buyers, George T. Moran, WAA District Director, announced here today. . Bids will be opened on the electric wire and cable at 11 a. m., Monday, and on the equipment and supplies at 11 a. m., Tuesday. Marshall Firm On China Plan Washington, March 11, (IP) - Secretary of State Marshall stood firm today in the face of insistent demancs from some of his wartime subordinates that the United States throw big scale military aid into the fight against Communism in China. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Lt. Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer and Maj. C en. Claire L. Chennault all have declared in the past week that this country must go oeyond economic help for Chiang Kai - Shek's hard - pressed Nationalist Government. But Marshall Army Chief of Staff during the war made clear yesterday that the three - year - old American policy toward . China still stands His news conference response to questions thus put it officially on the record that the United States is following two different courses! in meeting the Communist challenge in Europe and in the Far East. ' The difference is, however, washed out to some extent by the fact that in both China and Europe the United States is actively aiding governments fighting the Communists. ' Noon Speaker . The Rev.

Senator Edward Martin says he is not a candidate for the Republican Presidential nomination. He made the statement after the 28 - man Pennsylvania GOP House delegation endorsed Martin yesterday as its "favorite son" candidate. The 68 - year - old former Keystone State Governor stated he "profoundly appreciated" the ac tion. He added he, was "not unmindful" of the fact that Governor James H. Duff, of Pennsylvania previously had spoken of him as the favorite son candidate. Martin said he felt called upon "to repeat that I am not now, nor have I been a candidate for the Republican nomination for the Presidency or any other office." But there was little doubt he would accept the nomination if it were offered him: dDEUEVS IN Y&Q !?WWQiE ICS PLAN NOW TO OOO BUILD YOU OOO REMODEL SEE THE NEWEST IDEAS IN . . .
