(UP) — The Justice Department has undertaken a sweeping Investigation of the 1946 congressional elections 1 in Missouri, It was learned today. Department officials refused to dUctcw« how many districts are involved. But It was understood that the inquiry covers campaigns In several districts In the St. Louis and Kansas City, areas and the election of Sen. James P. Kern, R., Mo. Kern hlnuelf announced last week that FBI agents were questioning his campaign contributors. He said in a statement that, he hoped they answered all questions frankly and fully because he and his political associates had nothing to hide. earmarked for military pcnses. Officials who previously believed there was hope Greece could stand alone by next June 30 now say that possibility has vanished. The stcpped-up guerrilla attacks were said to have disrupted agricultural production In Northern Greece, lowered the moral' of the Greek armed forces, ag-l gmvalecl inflation, and retarded foreign and domestic commerce. More than 400,000 refugees are wards of the Greek government, and the number is expected to Increase until Spring. Other factors not anticipated when the program was offered to Congress early this year Include the poor Greek wheat crop! Because of droughths, the normal 00,000 bushel yield was cut to ess than 00,000 bushels. Higher vorld prices also have complicated he aid program. Mrs. Gay Entertains At Dessert Bridge Party Mrs. £.
