(iP>— Britain's Labor Party, put further nationali: zation on the shelf for the time being today In a bid to strengthen its shaky hold on the helm of government. Labor's majority, 148 seats in the • last parliament, shrunk to scvei seaU as a result of the Feb. 23 elections. The government's immediate pro gram was disclosed in a speech writ ten by the party for King George VI. The speech, delivered at today' formal opening of parliament, wn oiie of broad generalities, notebl for what it did not say rather than for what it did. It heralded a very bland diet for the immediate future. romp Marks Opening Parliament opened with its usual pomp and circumstance. Plashing jewels, gilt and furs brightened austere I/mdon in the centuries old pageantry preceding the opening. Thousands of Britons lined the route from Buckingham Palace to Westminster to see King George and •Keen Elizabeth drive in state to inaugurate the new body of lawmakers. The king's speech made no mention of new nationalization of industries, tlie basic plank in Labor's pre-election campaign platform. This shelving of socialization was an obvious bid for the support of the nine Liberal Party members of the new parliament. The Liberals had considered supporting the, Labor government If nationalization were halted. Their nine voles would add a great deal to the wobbly seven-seat majority tlie r Labor Party now holds In the 625-seat House of Commons. Clement Davies, the liberal leader in the House, Is expected to speak tomorrow, and his address will be studies closely for a hint of what Ihe Liberals intend to do. Buffering badly at the polls in the Feb. 23 election, the Liberals none the' less emerged ..with a position of strength because of the precarious edge of the Laborites over Winston Churchill's resurgent conservatives.

The outhouses shown above are located in Pride Addition In Southwest Blytlicviile. ' These particular buildings, however, are seeing their last days of use because of a new sewer district created by residents of this area to obtain proper sewage facilities. In other sections of Blytheville, many others are due to remain In use until a new city-wide sewer system can be Installed. Sanitation experts cite outhouses as a major breeding place for flies. The "stream" in the foreground is overflow from a cesspool located at far right. (Part of it may be seen as a hump in the ground.) Pride Addition residents point out that the cesspool overflow is a regular occurancc after heavy rains. Last week, Mayor Doyle Henderson recommended that the city purchase Blytheville Water Company as a step toward a new sewer system. Income from operation of the utility could be used to secure revenue bond issues to finance construction of a sewer system, he said. Sander Denies Any Intention Kill Mrs. Borroto with Air To MANCHESTER, N.H., March 6. i/Pj—Dr. Her'nan N. Sander testified in his murder trial today that "there was no indication of life, no reaction," when he injected air into the veins of Mrs. Abbie Borroto." . He also said "1 never had any intention of killing Mrs. Borroto." Under questioning by one of his attorneys tlie defendant said he believed she died of cancer and he so signified on her death certificate.

The legislative, program laid before the Commons was a sketchy one, touching only upon such legislation as might stir 'little conflict. In fad, the king laid most stress on such non-controversial material as the hope for achievement of a solution to the problem of atomic energy control. The king said his new government—which has a precarious seven-seat majority in the House of Commons—will do Its utmost "to assist In finding a durable solution to the tremendous problem of atomic energy so that International agreement for adequate control and sup- (lafrvislori of the production of atomic '"nergy may be secured." The king's speech from the throne, prepared by prime minister Attlec's cabinet, emphasized that the government will continue lo give full support to the'united Nations, 'for It Is only through an ef fee live system of security that world peace can be assured." tor to what he has done for e\f>rj patient whether II has any effect rot."

Dr. Sander testified In a calm voice. "I can't explain exactly what action I took then. Something snapped. Why I did it I can't tell. It doesn't make sense." 'Did you have any intention of killing Mrs Borrolo?' asked defense counsel Ralph E. Lnngdell. 'I never had any Intention of killing Mrs. Borroto," replied the doctor. Q.

(/Pi— The emphasis on coat legislation shifted in Congress today to the study commission which President Truman wants set up to find a way to lasting peace In the mining Indus) ry. The switch from last week's drive for enactment of a mine seizure bill was caused by the signing of a strike-ending contract by John L. Lewis and the soft coal operators. Some lawmakers, however, still demanded passage of a standby measure which would give the government authority to take over the coal mines In nny future crisis. Senator Capehart (R-Ind), for example, told a reporter: "I am for passing a seizure bill or any other kind of legislation that will keep one mnn. Lewis by name, from paralyzing the nation. Settlement or not, I am still for ihat." Committee Meets Today Tlie Senate Labor Committee arranged another bchind-closcd-doors- mecting to discuss the mine seizure bill which Mr. Truman sent to Congress last Friday. Senator E'bert D. Thomas (D- Utah), the committee chairman, predicted in advance of tlie session that the group would scrap the bill because of the agreement readied between the miners and the operators/ "Tlie bill was offered to deal with a specific crisis Which now has passed." Thomas said, "our Job Is done, I wculd say." The House Labor Committee shelved the seizure bill Saturday close on tlie heels of the announcement Friday night that the United Mine Workers and the operators had reached a prcllmimry tigree- Wossomed into a con-y Miners Are Happy As Coal Tap Opens PITTSBURGH, March 6.

For the miners, the prize they von was a $1.40 dally "package" er man, plus a reasonable assur- -ncc of fairly steady work for at east a year and perhaps until the middle of 1952. For the operators, t meant getting back Into the nislucss. For the public the settlement meant relief from a four-week strike, rescue from » looming Industrial breakdown, and some assurance of stability In what President Truman has called "a sick Industry,"—plus higher coal bills. Cost Runs Heavy One operator put the cost of th» United Mine Workers' gains at $250.000,000 thU year. The extra cost to consumers may be anywhera from 25 to 50 cents a ton. . The strike-settling contract wa« signed by UMW president John L. Lewis and the spokesman for all major groups of operators—-north,• west, the reluctant south, and the steel-owned "captive" group — at 5:30 p.m., (E.S.T.) Sunday. Lewis lold newsmen: "The United Mine Workers have again accom- polished the impossible." Then h» let the word ba flashed to the 370.000 strikers: • ..: . . ..:'.. "All mines will resume work." .-•'•••-. This time there was no defianc* of -a back-to-work order. There was.\a contract, thero..would bt work.

Memorial Periods—These periods of Idleness to commemorate the icath of mine victims are limited to five days a year under the new contract; the previous clause, which Lewis wanted renewed, Imposed no mit. The new agreement also contains these provisions not in Ihc old one and not previously disclosed as demands by either miners or operators. Operators Held Llahle The operators shall be held in violation of Ihc contract If they fail lo make "full and, prompt payments" to the welfare fund. The fund's board of trustees now includes Lewis as chairman; Josephine Roche, formerly Lewis' fund director, as neutral trustee; and Charles A. Owen, New York coal industrialist, for the operators. The old board included Senator Bridges (R-NH), as the neutral and Judge Charles I. Dawson of Louisville, named operators' trustte but never seated. All welfare fund payments now in arrears mast be paid up by March 15. The contract runs until June 30, 1952, but cither party mny terminate It on 30 days' notice on or after April 1, 19SI. Peace in the anthracite Industry seemed just ahead, too. Thus-far futile talks .In New York are being moved to Washington, probably on Tuesday.

I'rlce May Rise Most operators here predicted the .'.oft coal contract would push up the cost of producing a ton by 25 to 35 ccnls. Some said the public may pay as much as 50 ccnls n. Ion more, If operators are to recoup their losses of the last eight months. "If we produce 600.000,000 tons of coal this year, the contract will cost the country s300.000.000." forecast Joseph E.
