Confers With Morjentbau Meyers said he conferred with Morgenthau. and Eccles about investment of funds belonging to a couple of service welfare organizations, the Army Emergency committee and the Air Force Service Committee.

Living Cost Hike Looms in Britain High Official Offers Proposal to Remove Food, Clothing Subsidy LONDON. Nov. 12. (UP)—chancellor of Ihe exchequer Hugh ton was scheduled lo present to the House of Commons today a "crisis budget" that may stir up a tempest in the ruling Labor Party because It reporledly will remove I clothing and food subsidies in whole or part, and raise tile cost of living 10 or 15 per cent. Late last nipht, Cimmons approved on second—the crucial reading, the Labor Party's bill that will hold up a measure that has passed Commons. Winston Churchill charged it was "another step toward dictatorship." but Commons defeated his motion to reject the bill 34S to 194. A little earlier, the labor government had announced Britain's first peacetime labor draft order. Under it, 500,000 to 750,000 Britons, ranging from peers to hatchcck girls, may be drafted from unessential jobs or idleness into essential occupations. There actually was no advance, official information on the nature of the crisis budget, although reports were widespread that it would remove partly or altogether lood and clothing subsidies lo "mop up" inflation. Fear Hike In Living Costs This, it was said, would raise the cost of living lo or 15 per cent. Trade union leaders said the inevitable result would be another costly wave of strikes, since food already lakes 35 to 40 per cent of the working man's pay. Moreover, the unions charged "'ton does tamper with sub will do so al the Insisteh conservatives'.•' la-- Ifcte ;;o. , union" leaders recalled th.. . government tobacco "ration :e." Prices were raised so high, they said, that tobacco became too deur lor working people, but the well-lo-do can still afford to smoke. Labor Party leftists have protested that rationing by higher prices is "deleatist" and the very antithesis of ,the Labor Party's creed. /Work or Go to Jail Decreed /The labor draft law will go into effect on December 12. All men from 18 to 51 and all women from \ 18 to 41 "nol making a contribution lo Hie national well-being, "must register, or make themselves liable to a $2.000 fine andior two years in prison. It was aimed mainly at "spivs," a group of shady characters who exist by making books, selling in the black market and similar activities. But peers, ir they are not engaged in produclive work, writers, doormen and hatchcck girls in nightclubs nnd carnival workers must register. A labor ministry spokesman said the order will not apply to chorus girls and other proressi'oiial c-nter- laiueio and musicians. Those conscripted will have the choice of going inlo the coal mines, into farm work, textile production or other industries that the government considers essential to its "export, or die'' program.

By JOSEPH W. GKIGC. (United Press Staff Correspondent) PARIS, Nov. 12. (UP) Gen ** • Investigations Launched • • GALLUP, N. M., Nov. 12 (UP) — I Investigators swarmed over an 1 American Airlines DC-6 plane today, attempting to lenrn how thc big four-engincd ship caught fire while in night, yesterday. It was the second time within three weeks that a DC-G had caught fire. Last month, n United Airlines plane crashed nt Brycc Canyon with n loss of 52 lives after the pilot and crew fought to keep the ship in the air ngalnst a fire which destroyed itS controls. The Investigation under way to day might provide n clue to what happened In both mishaps. I'rompt action by Cnpt. W. Chatfield. Tulsn, Okla., saved the ship with Its 21 pnssenycrs and four crew members ycsterdny. He landed :t safely at Thunderblrd Field here despite thick smoke which hampered vision from his flight deck. The plane was en route from San Francisco to New York with n stop nt Pedestrian Hit by Car; Dell Man Under Arrest H. G. Marlindale oi' Dell was placed under $1000 bond in Munici-' pal Court this morning nrter he pleaded guilty to a drunk driving charge that arose from traffic accident late yesterday In which Hugh Smith, 22, was injured. Mr. Smith, a grocery store em- ploye, was struck when Martindale's ! one-ton Ford truck struck him and sideswiped a new Buick belonging to Fred Dean of Number Nine. He was taken to Walls Hospital for treatment and was dismissed last night. His injuries are not regarded as serious. Mrs. Bean said today that she was parked in front of Luttrell's (•-ocery and Market on Highway 61 near Chickasawba Avenue about 5 p.m. yesterday when Martindale's truck hit her car and struck Mr. Smith, who was loading groceries in it. Municipal Judge Graham Sudbury continued Martindale's case until Saturday for Judgment. Ark-Mo Power Company Bond Hearing Scheduled LITTLE ROCK, Ark , Nov. 12. (UP) — The Arkansas Public Service Commission will hold a hearing at 2 p.m. Monday on an application of the Arkansas-Missouri Pow- I er Company o f Blytheville, lo sell Great Britain and France lo stein world Communism and promote the reconstruction of Europe. Addressing his first, press conference since the landslide victory or his rally o r the French people- in the Oct. 19, nationwide municipal elections, DC Gaulle said Soviet Russia was n greater threat to France's existence than any power in history, including Adolf Hitler's Germany. Asked if he believed World War III was in the making, De Gaulle replied: "It would be crazy not lo look facts in the face and not to keep our eyes open to realities. A new war is a possibility. It is only R possibility, but we must face that possibility and prepare for it." Asked if he believed his right- wing movement could take power in France without a civil war, DC Gaulle said "I don't believe public opinion in this country is directed toward civil wnr or armed violence. But ir it, should come, force must remain on Hie side of the la-,%-." French Communist newsmen appeared to have boycotted thc conference. Calling for the United Slates British - French alliance against communism, he warned. "France todny fs probably the most seriously threatened nation. We arc confronted by a foreign |»wer much greater than any oilier In history — greater than that ol Charlemagne or Germain- or Wilhelm II or even or Hitler. The threat Is all the greater because thnt organization exists inside our own state. "It is natural," he said, "that, those who arc menaced should organize against the worst eventualities. That Is why ive must have complete agreement with other powers such as the United States and Great Britain ill Ihe form of a treaty which would be concrete and broad and in which each should have its own advantage ami make its own contribution, not as beggars but as equals. And it Is France as the most threatened nation that should take the Initiative in such an alliance." H c also sligscstcd a Franco-Kalian alliance lo right Communism and reorganize Western Europe.
