The American secretary of state said the board objectives or the present conference require that the exact procedures of. Pacific settlement of Inter-American disputes be simplified. At. Bogota In January, he said, the 'foreign ministers would formulate another ireal- ty to do that. "The results of our labors will demonstrate to all the world that peoples, and nations, who really want, peace can have peace by living in an atmosphere or increasing cooperative action and good will," he said. "We all recognize, 1 am sure, that we are living in a sick and suffering world." Spared Horrors of War Marshall said that "by tne grace of God" and through development of strong bonds of Pan- Americanism this- hemisphere ;has beenVspaied the horrors and devastation of war. He expressed the belief that the hemisphere is not sufficiently aware "of how vastly Important to the future of the old world is the unity of the new." •!; Marshall said that the • grave political problems confronting the world today are largely due to the complete disruption of normal economic and social relations, particularly in Europe. The problem in this hemisphere, he added is a long-range peacetime one requiring intensive economic planning to raise the general standard of living. Pay Day Monday For Guardsmen Of Company M Capt.

(UP)High official quarters were reported today to have made a preliminary although unsubstantiated estimate of goo persons dead and 7,000 injured in the Cadiz arsenal explosion. Earlier maximum estimates of the dead had ranged around 500 National officials refused to release casualty and damage estimates in the blast which wrecked parts of this port city, and did not permit the Spanish press and radio to disseminate any figures However, sources associated with official information sections In Madrid reported that an "informative" memorandum placed the toll at 800 dead and 7.COO Injured, cautioning at the same' time that there was no substantiated basis for the figures. Unofficial observers on the scene speculated that the damage might run to $25.000.000.

Aug. 20. <UPI—British cabinet members broke off their vacations again today for their third crisis meeting in four days, one whose urgency indicated emergency measures relative to the nation's economic plight were being considered. The cabinet meeting was called less than 24 hours after the surprise postponement of Anglo-American talks on revision of the U S loan agreement. No clue was forthcoming at once as to the nature of any measures the government might have in mind. The fact that several of ministers had left London only yesterday to resume their vacations after previous meetings tended to support the theory that some uh- cxpected development required immediate attention. Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin conferred with Will Clayton \J s undersecretary of state, and Ambassador Lewis Douglas at the foreign office before walking across Downing Street, for the cabinet meeting. He arrived 20 mlnulcs late. Lightning Kills Publisher DARIEN 1 , Conn., Aug. 20 (UP) — Daniel W. Ashley, 68. publisher of the United states News, Washington, D.

Mr. House spoke on the subject "Tills Complicated Age". Individuals complicate 'this age, he pointed out, by failing to observe the rules of the game of life. Mr. House illustrated his point by citing examples of businessmen who had ruined their lives and business by violating these rules but declared lie was more alarmed over a still greater loss than that caused by criminality or immorality. "Follow Ihe Rules" "Men of your own tyiw.' he told his audience, "have made nervous wrecks of themselves or dropped dead at an eariy age by violating the rules of the game of life."

Mr. House scored the altitudes of many clerks and said that "retail sales people are doing the worst Job they have done In the last 30 years."

The cemetery tract, he painted :mt, was depdcd several years ago to the Blytheville Memorial Park Association by the Methodist Church with the provision that It should be kept In a neat condition or else revert to church ownership. Three women, x two residing here nnd tiic third in Washington, D. C.. are the only living members of the Park Association today. Mr. Smothermon said.
