Shinwcll warned them that Britain's economy was "hanging by a thread." The remaining strikers will be governed by the results of a secret "work or strike" ballot being taken today among the S303 miners at the "orimethorpe Colliery. It was the refusal of 140 miners at Grime- thorpe to work 23 feet of coal fad.' Instead of 21 that brought on the stoppage. Shimvcll's warning was supported by Pood Minister John Stra:hcy, who disclosed thai Britain 'had .stopped buying foot) from the United Stales Jor the lime- ocing because she had rim 1 out of dollars.

BY IMUCiLAS NBA Staff Oom-spuiiatnl WASHINGTON—(NEA) — Veterans who are set to rush to the bank Sept. 2, the first day they can cash in their ermlnal leave bonds, better think twice unless they have an immediate and desperate need for the money. That's the last new cash benefit Congress is likely to hand to veterans for a long time, experts of the national veterans organizations and Veterans Administration officials believe. They based tlieir views on an analysis of the veterans' legislation passed by the 8Qlh Congress. Congress — due mostly lo the influence of Its members: who are World War 15 veterans Ihenvsclves appears convinced that tlic U. S. Government has now done Just about enough for its fighting sons and daughters. Prool is Hint the 79th Congress appropriated more than $10.000,005.000 for veterans benefits while the BOtn gave only J5.- CCO.OOO worth ot new benefits to them—to Increase payments to disabled Mctcrans taking vocational training. Enabling vets to cash terminal leave bonds didn't require a new appropriation. The money was already there.

Any veteran planning to go to school under the GI 'Bill must now start his course before July 25, 1951, and have completed it by July 25, 1956. And any former GI desiring a guaranteed loan must get it approved before July 25, 1857. The Presidential proclamation does not affecl. the recmploymcnt rights of veterans. These rights arc a permanent part of the law now. Veteran. 1 ! who are excepted from Ihe termination dates are those who entered service under the voluntary enlistment law which went into effect Oct. 6, 1946 and lasted for a year. These vets get nil the benefits they earned by service regardless of termination dates. Several minor veterans bills wcra also passed by the 80th Congress. I One legaliz;* a procedure usod by I VA which permits farm workers ' taking on-the-Job training to gel ! ifnll subsintance allowances e^/cn ' though they aren't taking all the classroom courses usually required.

The telephone company's cost of living has too, gone up Due to the Change of Telephone Numbers Our Phone Number Is Now 4431 COBB FUNERAL HOME 60.3 West Main St. When the telephone company goes to market today it finds, just as you do, that the cost of living has gone up. While you buy food, clothing and fuel, the telephone company fills its market basket with poles, trucks, cables and copper wire. Here is what has happened to the cost of these items since 1940: The saine number of poles we bought in 1940 for $100 now costs $235. We could buy a construction truck in 1940 for $2,656. Now it costs $4,054. The copper we bought in 1940 at 2 pounds for a quarter now costs 21 cents for 1 pound. But wore important, the telephone payroll—over half the cost of furnishing telephone service — has more than tripled since 1940. Yes, telephone revenues are up, too, for there are more telephones in use today in Arkansas than ever before. But expenses have risen faster than revenues in Arkansas. Since 1940, our revenues are up 109 per cent, lagging behind expenses, which have increased 131 per cent. Our earnings are dropping, particularly in recent months.
