TRACTOR CO. 14th and Rennle nomic crisis, informed quarters said today. They said abolition or at least curtailment of Britain's first peacetime draft -would be only pait of a jeneral reduction in military spend- to stem the drain on the nation's dwindling gold and dollar reserves. The treasury already has warned Don-military departments to shoot for at least a five per cent reduction in their next budgets. An even larger percentage may be demanded of the military services if the Washington talks fail. One quarter of Britain's budget is devoted to de- lense. Britain Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin is expected to tell American officials in Washington that Britain's economic troubles are not Britain's alone A reduction in Britain's military spending, he will contend, would affect joint Anglo- American efforts to stop the'spread of Communism. Informed quarters said Bevin undoubtedly would insist that Britain's anti-Communist program in the Far Bast, especially in Hong Kong and Malaya, should be placed on the Washington balance sheet because it is as much to the- U. interest as Britain's. Bevin conferred today with t7 Ambassador Lewis Douglas for the second time this week on the economic crisis. CALL THIS NUMBER' HIT THE JACK-POT!

Rumblings Were Probably Quakes MATTAPOISETT, Aug. 27 (UP)--Earthquakes, not spooks, are causing Hugh Hugberger'g home to rumble, it appeared today. Boston College observatory at Weston, reported a minor disturbance was recorded on its seisimograrh at mid-afternoon yesterday. The disturbance occurred at 56 miles southeast of Weston, which would be in this area. It was recorded at at hour when latest rumblings were heard by the Hugbergers. "Of course, we can't say defln itely that we recorded the rumb ings," said Rev. Francis J. Donohue, S. assistant director ot the observatory. "But indications are that the Mattapoisett rumblings may have been caused by a purely local earth tremor which we recorded." It all began Wednesday night at 10 m. when the west wall of Hugberger's home began rumbling from cellar to roof. For 2 1-2 hours the window-rattling rumble continued, loudly enough to be heard by about 50 neighbors. Since then, Police Chief Alden Kininey reported today, the rumbles have continued periodicially --a total of perhaps 50, some of which, however, lasted only a few minutes. Mystified and alarmed, the Hug bergers summoned Chief Kinney to find out what caused the rattling. "It sounded just like a sack of rocks begin dragged over a wooden floor--but much louder," Kin- ney said. "I'm as puzzled as the rest of them as to what causes the rumbling." The first true friction match was invented in 1827 by John Walker, an English druggist. Morey Insurance Agency PHONE 659 AUTO FIRB UFB CASUALTY JAMES I. MOREY, JR. 155 FRONT ST.
