BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NKIWCnAnms x-v» MS-ID rrajri:' *. C?T» * r*-v * *in * « . / w W ^^^^ VOL. XLIV—NO. 189 Outright Grants To Europeans Due to Be Made Loans Contemplated Along With Gifts, One Official Suggests WASHINGTON, Oct. 29. (U.P.) —Acting Secretary of state A. IjOvelt said today that the Marshall plan to be presented to the special session of Congress Nov. 17, will include outright gifts for hard-pressed European countries. This was the first official on- the record disclosure that the long-range plan contemplates outright gifts as well as loans to the 18 countries participating in the Marshall plan. At the some time. Secretary of the Treasury John w. Snydcr said the Marshall plan must be token care of, before tax cms can be made. He said financing of the plan should be on a pay-as-you-go basis without unbalancing the U. S budget, Lovett rlid not give any specific figures on Ihe amount to be loaned or given away. He said final decisions have not been made yet. Lovett said three types of long- range aid probably will be Involved: (1) outright grants, <2> loans and (3) an intermediate field involving both loans and grants. Tough Decision! to Be Made He described the week of decisions facing the administration as "hell week." Snydcr told a new conference that President Truman would discuss taxes in his message to the special session of Congress -Nov. 11. Snyder indicated that this is not the proper time yet for cutting taxes. Tax, reduction cannot be considered until the government knows what its revenue needs will be. He said it would be impossible to set a scale of tax reductions when government needs for fiscal 1949 are not known yet. Snyder's attitude on taxes whicl presumably reflects that of the administration, clashed head-on with that of the Republican con gressional leadership which has served notice it will renew Its fight for income tax cuts. The GOP position, set forth bv Sen. Robert' A. Taft, R., o.,, and others, was challenged by one Republican Senate member Sen Charles W. Tobey of New Hampshire. Tobcy said in Boston that a desire "to make the headlines" is responsible for the tax reduction demands for .some of his . GOP. colleagues in Congress.

'Frisco Bids For 1948 Convention Will Match Basic Offer Made by Philadelphia To Lure Democrats WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 (UP)— San Francisco was ready 'today to match Philadelphia's basic S200000 offer to lure the 194B Democratic National Convention to the Golden Gate. ^ A final decision on a convention site was to be made by the Democratic National Committee which meets: at 11 a.m., EST.,' at the Mayflower Hotel. Tile committee also was to go through the formality of electing Sen. J. Howard McGrath of Rhode Island as national chairman. Mrs. Edward H. Heller, Democratic National Committee woman from California, said shortly before the meeting that she had rounded up enough cash support to t equal Philadelphia's offer of a certified check for S200.000. The City of Brotherly Love is bolstering its bid with a promise of $50,000 more for entertainment. The Philadelphia delegation, headed by Mayor Bernard Samuel claims to have the support of a majority or the lOO-odd-membcr national committee. Republican leaders already have picked Philadelphia for their convention, to starl June 51. The Democrats, according to custom, were expected to pick a date several weeks later. Also before the committee was the question of convention strength. A sxibcommittee planned to recommend a bonus of four delegates to each slate that went democratic tn 1946. The 1944 convention comprised 1.176 delegates The bonus plan would boost the total to more than 1.200 and would bolster substantially the power of the solid South This would please the Soutficrn- I ers who have .bemoaned their po- ' sition ever since the so-called two- thirds rule — for nominating pre- sfdcnl and vice-president — was abolished. Henry Wallace and hts third party talk figured prominently in hotel room conversation but were not expected to draw official mention. McGrath, 43-year-old former U S. Solicitor General takes over the top democratic post confident that President Truman not only will accept th c nomination but will win. McGrath, who succeeds the all- Ing Robert E, Hannegan. will hanx on to his first-term senate seat, dividing his time between lawmaking and politics He says Jokingly that th e campaign won't even raise his blood pressure. A veteran pollllclan, he was elected to three successive terms as governor of Rhode Island. His political record »o far lists nothing but vlctorif* Job Placements High in Missco 325 Obtain Jobs in Industries in City During September Blytheville employers hired 325 workers for Industrial employment during September through the local offic6 of the Arkansas Employment Security Division, a monthly report revealed today. Placements, which have increased slightly each month since January, decreased.-3.7 per cent during September as compared with August. Compared with a year ago the Sep• tember figure was 3.4 per cent higher. J. M. Cleveland, local office manager, pointed out that of the number of hires made during the month 113 were veterans: Stressing the need of more physically handicapped workers in industry, emphasized through the state-wide Employ the Physically Handicapped Week, recently observed here, employers of the city hired six with handicaps through the local employment security office. A total of 431 job openings was received by the office during the month which was an Increase of 3? 2 per cent over August. The number of openings left unfilled at the end of Ihe month was 51,2 per cent more than at the end of August. Fewer Men Seeking Jobs New applications for work showed a decrease over the previous month. The 67 applications taken during September were 40.2 per cent lower than the number taken in August. During the same period readjustment allowance payments to veterans and unemployment compensation to non-veterans declined 40 per cent. . Tlie local office manager said that several factors continue to operate to prevent a better utilization of the surplus of labor in the area Included are location of many workers in rural areas where work opportunities are limited. Other factors are strict employer specifications regarding training and experience and in some cases age restrictions and unattractive wage rates and working conditions in" certain types of work. In Little Rock, Purifoy Gill, state administrator of the Arkansas Employment Security Division, said I that Arkansas employers throufh- 'oul the state hired 9.337 workers through the local offices of the agency, as compared with 7702 In Ag "g«st. and 7,897 in September, Mr. CTill said employers of Arkansas took the slogan: "Ability, not disability. Counts!" to heart and hired 443 physically limited persons as compared with 273 in 1946 during the same period. Local employers are urged to place all their Job orders with the local employment security office to ob- lain qualified workers In professional, technical, skilled and clerical positions. Parking Problem Solution Sought By C. of C. Board Co-operation Sought To Make More Room For Shoppers' Autos A movement to achieve the cooperation of personnel of Main Street busine.ss firms in- alleviating the parking problem will be launched soon by the Chamber of Commerce, it was learned today. Members of the Chamber's Board of Directors met yesterday afternoon in City Hall and decided to write letters lo all Main Street linns asking that employes who drive cars make ironsporhillon arrangements which would result In lewer cars occupying parking places for day-long periods. t The letters will merely ask the co-operation of these employes and the move is entirely voluntary, it was stressed. The Brfard suggested (hat the em- ployes have someone drive them to work and return to their homes with the cars or that they not drive them downtown at all. This would conserve a large amount of parking space and would lend lo improve business by providing more places for customers to park, it was pointed out. The probability (hat many customers limit their trading becaues adequate parking space is not available now was pointed out. The 'Board yesterday also discussed a chamber of" commerce membership drive which Is scheduled to bcgil. r.cxl month. B. A. Lynch presented a report of the meeting in West Memphis Friday of the East Arkansas Natural Gas Consumers Association, of which he Is a. director. Batesville Minister To Move to Osceola OSCEOLA.

Full Parity Price Supports Urged Mississippian Asks South-West Unity Against GOP Policy JACKSON, Miss.; Oct. ,29. (UP) — Sen. .James O. Eastland. D., Miss., today urged Southern and Western congressmen to form a coalition agamsE'thc Republican majority and push through a farm program guaranteeing full parity price support, Eastland, who Is chairman of the Senate Cotton Committee, also urged thnt the Commodity Credit Corporation remove its ban on Japanese manufactured textiles entering the United States. He said the Japanese goods would "give the American buying public a break" and thnt the Agriculture Department would be doing the people a "great injustice" if the Japanese markets are allowed to pass to Britain and 'India. Eastland said it would "be our duty" to rewrite the nation's agricultural program during the forthcoming special session and next year's regular session of Congress. The price support program now in force expires next year. He said the GOP apparently desires a program calling for only 60 per cent of parity. "I judge the fight will revolve around these two figures," Eastland! said. "I hope Ihe South and the I West will band together to support! measures for price support at parity. " Eastland blamed high prices of manufactured textiles on "Ihe cot- Ion manufacturers who are gouging the American public." \ Union-Sponsored Food Stores Report Enthusiastic Response By United Press Union-sponsored cooperative stores in 10 cities Irom Calilornla to North Carolina said today that the ventures were accepted enthusiastically by members wherever they were Irled.

He stressed preparedness and the building up of a strong Naval reserve lo Implement thc nation's first line of defense. The ciiplain also called attention to "subversive tendencies" which now exist but named no specific groups or movements. Capt. Bultcrflcld pointed out lhat al presenl there arc grave problems in international relations concerning America's responsibility in maintaining world peace. There arc also grave problems In regard lo the roles which tile Army. Navy and Air Forces should p!ay in the defense or Implementation of national policies and as to Ihe weapons which ehould be used, he said. Discuswig the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor Dec. 1, 1011, the Naval officer said that statements and explanations offered afterwards "are not all wrong" but "Just fail to show the complete picture of the situation then cxi.slini;." Communists on Pewrl Harbor The War and Navy DepnrtrnertS-i did not Issue a "special alert," lie said, because " 'readiness for war' of R military power which has as its aim world domination is otic thing and 'readiness for war' of a democracy such as ours is another." Although it appeared that the War and Navy Departments did not expect the Japs lo rilt Hawaii, it was actually a matter of the Japs making a move that did not appear logical to U. S. military strategist.;, Caul. Uiilterllcld said. A study of the overall strategical situation showed thai Saigon, Ihe Malay Peninsula and the Philippines were Ihe most logical points for the Japs to attack, he pointed out. "As far as consideration of the possibility of an attack on Hawaii, it was and lias been considered for years, but in this instance it did not .seem the best step lor Japan to take." Capt. Bilttcrfield added "I personally believe that the 'blow' struck by Japan at Pearl Harbor atfcctcd the prompt mobilization of our entire war effort and did more toward destruction of [he Japanese Empire than any other method of entering into war could have done." In pointing out that citizens an:l their representatives In Congress hold the responsibility for providing equipment and personnel for the armed services, he said they also had Ihe right to expect that these be properly employed an.l trained. "That." he said. "Is a large order," t>ccause thc r.rxl war could start with the bombing of any of a number of points In the country. Tells of Air Reserve Program He also mentioned the Naval Air Reserve program such as is being coiiducled at the Memphis'air station and said "we would be happy to sec more enthusiasm throughout this whole area In enrolling and atlending drills In our program." This program, he said, "is vital to thc solely of the United States." Earlier In his talk. Capt.
