NIP COURT PRESIDENT . TOKYO, Feb. 8— (m— Appointment of Dr. Choryo Hosono as president of the Japanese supreme court succeeding Seiichi Shimoyama was announced today. Light Breeds fiSO Chicks ALL AGES TODAY Mixed and Cockerels Day Old With Forming Evil Compact Seventy-four Baptist ftnd Methodist ministers and laymen from the thirteen Southern states Have" wired Senator Bilbo, '^We resent your assuring the right to speak for Baptists and Methotiists of the South," nnd the religious leaders further charged Mr. Bilbo with "forming an unholy • compact to delay the coming of so:ial progress in the South and the coming of a world of brotherhood, peace and democracy." The ministers acted when the Southern Conference for Human Welfare called to their attention Bilbo's recent statement in his Senate filibuster, as reported in the press of January 31, "I will take core of these Baptist and Methodists." "\Ve wish to remind you," said the religious leaders, seven of them from Mississippi, "that the punishment assigned to that evil servant who said in his heart 'My Lord de- laycth his ooming' and began to smite his fellowservants was that he should be cut asunder and his portion assigned with the hypocrites." 'The day is at hand," the telegram continued, "when political punishment 3f this sort will be meted out in the New South to its reactionary representatives who with their faces turned backwards are engaged in smiting their fellowser- vants. It is inevitable that conditions of justice, tolerance and equality of opportunity be created." The hill text of the telegram: "We, the undersigned Baptist and Methodist ministers and Inymen, working for the removal of the slavery of intolerance, prejudice, and economic discrimination, resent vour assuming the right to speak for Baptists and Methodists of the South, as reported in the press of January 31. I will take care of these Baptists and Methodists.' We want you and the rest of the world to know that you do not speak for us. "By resorting to the unprincipled method of the filibuster in your assault upon the Fair Employment Practice Bill, you and your associates have formed an unholy -compact to delay the coming of social progress in the south and the coming of a world of brotherhood, peace and democracy. "We wish to remind you that the punishment assigned to that evil servant who said in his heart 'My Lord delayeth his coming' and began to smite his fellowservants was that he should be cut asunder and his portion assigned with the hypocrites. "The day is at hand when political punishments of this sort will be meted out in the New South to its reactionary representatives who with their faces turned backward are engaged in smiting their fellow- servants. It is inevitable that conditions of justice, tolerance, and equality of opportunity be created." larquez Services Set "or 9:00 Tomorrow Funeral services for Ignacio B.

What has happened to the secretary of labor? Every -labor reporter has been asking that question. Prior to the current news blackout from his office, the tall, friendly se:re- tary was easily accessible to newsmen he knew. One development that occurred in the meantime was the appointment of John R. Steelman, former labor deportment conciliation chief, to be a special assistant to President Truman. Whatever the reason, it is a fitot that S:hwellenbach, since his troubles with the oil, steel, auto, meatpacking^ Greyhound, glass and sundry other labor disputes, has de- clifie~d even to see the reporters working out of, a press room down the hall from his office. Columnists have been using the Sehwellenbach retirement from public prints as an indication that he is waiting for an appointment to the bench, possibly the supreme court, and is just biding his time. This has brought no affirmation or denial. Read Classified Ads in the New» "Grandpa's using lie-backs to show the tie he got tor hft birthday!"
