City officials had feared the power shutdown would quickly affect power supplies to most of the inhabitants in the district. Meanwhile the ctiy remained in a state of confusion and Mayor David L. Lawrence declared a state of emergency. Many residents curtailed their use of electricity. Public schools were closed under plans announced in advance that they would not open if the strike were called. Most of the district colleges were closed, including the University of Pittsburgh. There still was the threat that the strike could spread to home users, of whom there are 330,000 in the district. A walkout of 3400 employed of the light company began at 4 o'clock this morning to enforce demands for a wage increase. The strike quickly reflected in business life in Pittsburgh, "work$hop of the world." Downtown department stores closed their doors "until further notice."

Another counteracted the suggestion, saying, "There's no such thing as piling too much work on sommittees," to which the majority of councilmen agreed. Committee chairmen are to appoint members to serve with them. John Lindsey was appointed parliamentarian. Porky appointed Jimmy Campbell, Avis Kelley and Anita Lane to assist Warren in getting membership rules straightened out immediately The committee is to report its findings, based on past attendance statistics at the Canteen, to the council at the next meeting. Discussion concerning membership was based on the question of deciding the age-limit of Canteen members and the need for better organization because of the hall being packed on special nights. The council discussed a probable limit of 13 or 14 to 19 years of age. Other subjects touched on were rules to be observed in using the juke box, the probability of being open Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons finances and the need for the support of non-council members in assisting committees. The next meeting of the council will be held at 8 p. m. Monday night at the Canteen. All councilmen are urged to be present. After the council is fully organized, it was decided, it will meet only on the first Monday of each month at 8 p. m. Mrs. Julia Pagan, Canteen supervisor, called the council meeting and turned it over to Porky- Scouts Honored With Banquets Last night three Boy Scout troops in Pampa were given banquets by their sponsoring organizations in recognition of National Boy Scout week. Scouts and their fathers were invited to the banquets. Principal speaker at the meeting of Troop 4, sponsored by the Frist Christian church, was Paul Hill; Troop 14, sponsored by the First Presbyterian church; Ray Evans, former scout master before entering the navy in 1942, and Troop 22, sponsored by the First Baptist church, Calvin Whatley. All speakers spoke on the topic of the cooperation of youth and parents. Tomorrow at 6:15 p.m., in connection with Boy Scout Week, L. G. Langston, Pampa businessman and former Eagle Scout, will give a KJJDN broadcast on "What Scout- | ing Has Meant to Me in the Business World." Last evening at the same time, W. O. Pruett, scout master of Troop 4, talked on the meaning of scouting in the community. TOP SCOUTER Transit Strike (Continued from page 1) a. m. yesterday, demanded PTC acceptance of a union shop and a iberalized pension plan before submitting to arbitration 26 other dis- juted points, including a requested 25-cents-an-hour wage increase. PTC offered an immediate 12-cent- an-hour boost with arbitration of all other demands." Meantime, the company's 3,268 trolleys, buses, trackless trolleys and subway-elevated cars stood idle in 52 carbarns and garages under the watchful eyes of pickets—and Philadelphians resorted to shoe leather, mtomobile, railroads, taxis and hitchhiking to get from one place ,o another. The work hour rush today brought another avalanche of pack- automobiles and trucks, jammed rains and long distance walkers iut the stampede was d bit less seri- iiis than-yesterday's worst traffic narl in Quaker city history. Policemen were at every Central ity intersection and rigorous en- orcement of a ban on parking ex- ept for temporary stops and pick- p trips kept a stream of traffic n the move. Officials said 95 per cent of the ity's 800,000 workers—most of them ormally transit lines riders—man- ged to reach their jobs in fac- ories, stores and offices during the rst day of the walkout. Policemen working 12-hour shifts, ought to control an estimated 225,00 automobiles—lined bumper to umper along all downtown streets —between 7:30 and 10 a. m. (work- ound) and 4:30 to 7 p. m. (home- ound).

He talked with Jack Horner, 18, a West Virginian living- in Fremont, convinced him the army was the place for him, enrolled him and then rented his room. PAAF Field (Continued from page 1) cated five miles and one three miles irom the city, have paved runways and taxi-ways, which the municipal .field does not have. • Very little discussion centered on the possibility of the city getting the main field, as it is too far from town and would therefore be of little value. ' Hamilton told the commisison that his interest in the question was based on the fact that his company does airport engineering work and the firm would like to compete in any open bidding for contracts. James A. McCune, above assistant industrial relations director with the Cabot Co., was presented the highest possible award obtainable in Scouting, the Beaver medal, at the annual Adobe-Walls Council meeting held recently. McCune, scoutmaster of Troop 14 isince 1843, has spent 15 years in Scouting. The award given by national headquarters of the Boy Scout of America for "distinguished service to boyhood," was presented by W. J. Hiatt, scout executive of the Llano Estacado council with headquarters at AmariUo. Scouter McCune first joined a Boy Scout troop at Wichita, Kansas, at the age of 12 and was a member of the troop from 1915 to 1919. For the next four years lie served as assis- timt of his troop. In 1923 he moved to Staten Island, N. Y., where he served on the troop committee of his neighborhood troop during 1938.and 1939. The next year he moved to Pampa, and continuing; his Scout work, served as assistant scoutmaster of troop 14 during 1940-43. It was then that McCune took over the job as scoutmaster, when the former scoutmaster was called into the navy. The McCune family is an all-Scout family. Mrs. McCune is active in the Girl Scout program. A daughter is a Girl Scout, and a son is an Eagle Scout and a senior in Pampa high school. Troop 14, of which McCune is the Scoutmaster, has an outstanding record with three to four Scouts becoming Eagles each year and with 85 percent of the Scouts above the rank of first class. The troop is a sure winner of honors at Camporees and other Scouting activities. Three other Pampans hold the Beaver award. They are Dr. H. L. Wilder, W. B. Weatherred, and Raymond Harrah. The former two men received awards in 1945, the latter in 1944.

The announcement came a few hours after O'Dwyer had ordered all non-essential business establishments and places of amusement closed until further notice to conserve a perilously low fuel supply. The union in the dispute—the AFL international Longshoremen's association's united marine division —agreed yesterday to arbitration.
