Thousands Brave Rain To ï“vyRFÎof Cheer Truman in Waco Dismal Weather Puts them came Mayor Richard C. Hiimnpr in fprpmnnip« Bush of Waco and a few minutes tamper in ceremonies laler L s Attorney General Tom as President Awi Degree at Baylor By SAM WOOD Assistant Editor The Wftco News-Tribune Damp and disappointed Wacoans returned to their normal routine Thursday afternoon while President Harry Truman was winging toward Washington in the C-54 Sacred Cow. The President had a diploma from Baylor University attesting his honorary academic rank of Doctor of Laws. Most Wacoans had the privilege of telling their grandchildren they saw President Truman’s automobile. A few hundred saw the President. Red Letter Day and Wet Mr. Truman came to Waco at 9:55 a. m. He left at 2:14 p. m. In the brief interval Baylor University wrote into its second century of history what Senator Tom Corinally, veteran alumnus, called a “red-letter day." On the weather chart it was written off as a wet and dismal day. By the time the Sacred Cow departed, Baylor President Neff had accomplished all of his objectives except an outside ceremony In sunshine at Union Bowl. When President Truman's plane halted in front of operations building at Municipal Airfield a steady rain was falling. The welcoming committee had been huddled in automobiles which were waiting to form the motorcade. Reporters, photographers. Secret Service agents and airfield personnel had taken refuge in nearby barracks buildings. Officials Enter Plane Senator Tom Connallv and Baylor President Pat Neff were ushered into the huge C-54. Behind as President Awarded , ciark.f >nd the president stepped from the plane arm-in-arm. Secret Service Agent H. S. Anderson, who had suddenly decided there would be no news photographs and had so warned the large squad of cameramen who were standing under the wing, was practically brushed aside oy the two as they halted and faced toward the row of flash bulbs. Both the President and Neff were smiling although they were standing in the rain. The motorcade started toward Bavlor with the President, Neff and Senator Connally in the back seat: Governor Beauford Jester in a jump seat and Mayor Bush in a front seat. • A cold, driving rain thinned the crowds along the nine-mile route to town, but his drivo through the main part of Waco was through cheering crowds that packed sidewalks. The crowd was far below expectations. Some stood under um- orellas, some in doorways, but many braved the weather to stand on sidewalks to get a good view of the President. , A crowd already was gathered at Waco Hall, on the Baylor campus, where the President was due. By 10:30 a. m., the hall was four-fifths full. All who entered the hall had to have either invitations or passes. Secret Service men were everywhere. Stage Draped With Flags The stage, obviously hastily decorated, was draped with flags. Many men in caps and gowns were standing about. Some walked up to the stage, waiting for the Presidential entry. Because of the sudden change in site of the ceremony, and the move to Waco Hall which forced a cancellation of a «visit by the President to Neff’s office, all of the official party was on the Waco Hall stage by 11:15, a half hour before the degree ceremony was scheduled. President Truman was ushered to a room on the wing to don his academic gown. Neff took advantage of the opportunity to address his many gifted ex-Baylorite platform speaker, Senator Connaliy. The capped and gowned Baylor faculty members marched into the hall and were seated in the center section. In the balcony, the Baylor band began to play to entertain the tense, expectant crowd. All Doors But One Closed Photographers and newspaper correspondents came in and were seated in the orchestra pit, just in front of the stai Official Business President’s Plane Lands at Washington at 7:20 p. m.; Big Job Ahead for Him „ - . „ . „ WASHINGTON, March 6—UP— President Truman returned to Washington and the pressing problem of American intervention in All doors to the iiall were closed Greece tonight, after a five-day, 4,000-mile aerial jaunt to Mexico and the Southwest. He flew non-stop in his plane, the Sacred Cow, from Waco, Texas. The Sacred Cow landed at National Airport at 7:20 p. m., CST. He was accompanied on his trip back to Washington by Senator Tom Connally, Democrat, Texas.

His first big job was expected to be formulation of a statement to the nation on the situation in Greece and an explanation of how and why he wants the United States to take over part of Great Britain's commitments in that country. With Secretary of State George C. Marshall in Europe on his way to the Moscow Foreign Ministers' Conference which opens Monday, the main burden of winning Congressional support for the proposed intervention in Greece appeared to rest squarely upon the President.

Lewis and the United Mine Workers guilty of contempt and branded their actions a “serious threat” to constitutional government and the nation's welfare. Moreover, the high tribunal in effect clapped a Mno strike’* edict on the soft coal miners for the present. With repeated rebukes to Lewis, it sustained the anti-strike injunction Federal Judge T. Alan Goldsborough issued to head off last fall’s coal strike. It approved the contempt convictions of Lewis and the United Mine Workers for disobeying the injunction. The $10,000 fine against Lewis was upheld. As for the $1,500,000 fine against the union, the court upheld $700,000 of it as punishment for contempt already committed in the strike which ended Dec. 7. And it held the other $2.800.000 over the union s head, to be assessed if it strikes March 31 or any other Snow Hits Panhandle Where Temperature Is Freezing; Sleet in Other Texas Areas Winter dug in last night for at time so long as the government least another day’s stay in Texas, operates the mines.

Mr. Truman is a first cousin of the President. President Truman, turned to see who was calling, smiled broadly, and extended his hand over the railing to Lamoyne Truman. "And this is Sue,” said President Truman, shaking hands with Miss Sue Truman of Dallas. “And this is Charley,” said Lamoyne. President Truman shook hands with Charles Truman, also of Dallas. Charles and Miss Sue Truman are cousins of Lamoyne. the son and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Truman of Denton.
