Vaccaro KEY WEST, Fla., Dec. 13. OF)— Key presidential advisors said today that th« administration's civil rights battle In the election-year congress will be centered behind the FEPO bill. This measure, designed to prevent discrimination against Negroes and othfcr minority groups in employment practices, !s one of the several antl-dlscdmlnation measures President Truman will again propose to Congress in January. They say It probably will face tougher opposition in Congress than any of the civil rights measures but that organizations opposing discriminations insist upon fighting It out on this line. Tills, and other measures, like the mill-lynching, anti-poll tax and similar proposals cost President Truman four Southern Democratic states In last year's election. Senate Majority Leader Micas ha.s said he will make the PEPC bill the first order of business In the Senate after Congress reconvenes in January. Filibuster Seen Advisors here concede the move will lead to a filibuster and the chances for pas-snue are not bright. At the same time, they argue that the very fight will help Democratic Congressional candidates in closely- contested districts. They say concentration on an anti-poll tax bill or the antt-lynch- Ing bill might draw a little fire but that there wa.s nothing in the past history of the Senate to Indicate either of these could be passed Mr. Truman's top specialists on civil rights are here to consult with him on strategy. They are Administrative Assistant David K. Niles and his assistant, Phillco Nash. Meanwhile, White House advisors continued to shuttle back and forth by plane. Most of them have told reporters privately they have spent more time playing than they have working on the "state of the union" message Mr. Truman will deliver to Congress In January.

Dec. 13. fAPj — Authorities today pressed their Investigation of a shotgun blast fired at a non-striking em- ploye of Die OzHrk Hardwood Co. plant here.

Sheriff Lloyd Yarbrough reported yesterday through Finds Life Worth Living After He Takes Hadacol AI D. Engles, a retired construction worker of 503 Dennis St., Houston, has changed his mind and again believes that life is worth living. There was plenty i of darkness be- 1 fore light for I Mr. Engles and 1 he would riol feel like a new I man today if a 1 friend had not ! rented him a r o o m in his home and I showed him [how HADA- ^phirn'.° Uld Mr.. Engles had been in the hospital for 3a days two years ago with pneumonia and soon was a beaten, despondent man. He \vas nervous, could not sleep, his food did not agree with him, he suffered digestive disturbances, gas, bloating and pains in the stomach. He lost so much weight that friends sometimes did not even recognize him. He also suffered with rheumatic painj of neuritU. "To say life wai rot worth living was putting il rather mildly," said Mr. Engles. "1 just figured life was over and the remaining time would he a nightmare on «arth." The fact that he Is a changed man today is due to a chance meeting with an old friend. The friend had been unable to work for a year but Mr. Englei was amazed to find him feeling fine and on the job every day. When Mr. Engles expressed amazemcnl »t th« change the friend urged him to come home with him and »e« how HADACOL wai bringing him relief every day. "I was impressed bjr my fri«nd'i linearity and had taken •o many remedies that I was ' -willing to try anything." laid Mr. i Zngles. "J went home wilh my - friend and Elarted taking HADA- COL just 11 h« did. After taking iev«ral bottlet of HADACOL 1 felt better than »t any time in years." Mr. Englei Is just on« of the countless thousands who found relief through HADACOL. He •uffered from » lack of B Vita- mini and Minerals which HADA- COL contains. Many persons who •uffered nnd waited und hoped for 10 to 20 years or tven longer, «r« abl« to liv« happy, eomfort- »bl« lives ngain. Be fair to yourtsH. Rive HADACOL a trial.
