The law provides that before a vehicle may be registered, the owner inust prssent to the tax collector the iprior year's registration receipt and taust have a title. Many people do not understand the importance and value of the Title act, and do not realize that the .Certificate of Title act was passed :to improve the validity of titles on motor vehicles thereby making such title comparable to an abstract on leal estate. There arc some persons operating motor ' vehicles with Out-Of-State license plates who may legally op- irate under 1946 Out-Of-State ii- .cense plates, and these persons are .cautioned to otbain such 1946 plates pud apply same on or before the expiration of their, present plates. There are others operating motor Vehicles with Out-Of-State license .plates who must legally re-register in Texas, and these persons are ad- Vised to purchase Texas plates im- ,mediately to avoid having to pay a .penalty in addition to the registra- fee. Particular attention of the own- ,ers of trucks, truck-tractors, trail- jiers, semi-trailers and buses was .Called to the fact that they must ;foe prepared to furnish the Tax .Collector with a complete des^rip- ttion as to the size, type and serial irmmber, et cetera, of equipment to ijbe registered, and must be prepar- i*d to register for the actual weight ,ipf the empty vehicle plus the hcav- dest -load to be carried, which under 4he law cannot be less than the •manufacturer's rated carrying capa- Icity.

Peron accused Spruille Braden, assistant U. S. secretary of state, last night of having headed a "vast spy network," while he served as U. S. ambassador to Argentina and of blackmailing Argentine merchants into contributing funds to support his "subversive work." At the same time, Peron and Foreign Minister Juan I.

They may also be secured from Frank Baker, golf pro at the Country club, from Charlie Thut at the office of the county clerk, and from other Lions.

Big Row Breaks Out at Hearing On Pearl Harbor •WASHINGTON, Feb. 15—M')—A wordy row broke out today at the Pearl Harbor hearing after Rep. Kcei'c R. S. (R-Wis) Bratton asserted that Col. had "sworn to a Hans Frank Said Responsible lor Butchering Jews NUERNBERG, Feb. 15—(/P)—The Russian prosecution presented documentary evidence to the international military tribunal today stating that defendant Hans Frank Was responsible for butchering 3,000,000 Jews while he was Governor General of Poland. Soviet prosecutor said Frank entered in his diary his declaration in a 1940 newspaper interview that 'there would not be enough forests in Poland" to supply paper for the lists of Poles he had slaughtered if he tried to emulate colleagues in Czechoslovakia by issuing posters announcing the ox.ecution of a mere seven viotims. The document said Frank pledged that the campaign of annihilation would be intensified with the end of the war. Frank sat impassively in the prisoner's box staring at the floor as Prosecutor L. 'N. Smirnov read i.o the tribunal extracts from Frank's diary, relating his declaration to the police conference that the great extermination should be pressed relentlessly "so that the Polish army may no longer rise." The tribunal overruled a protest by Kirt'Kauffman, attorney, for defendant Ernst Kalteirtarunner, against reading of reports by the Soviet war crimes investigation committee. false statement." The flareup came on the scheduled exniration dale of the senate-house inquiry into the Dec. 7. 1941, attack on Hawaii. Committee Chnlrnum Bnrkley (D-Ky) told a reporter he would .seek an extension n:; soon as the committee agrees at a closed session-of its length. Bratton was called for questioning by Keefe. in why he changed previous testimony about the delivery of intercepted messages to Washington officials on thi; eve of Pearl Harbor. Bratton r.aid liis present re.:ollcc-! lion is that he did not have anyone deliver to Gon. George C. Marshall on that evening any parts of the intercepted Japanese message breaking off diplomatic negotiations The message was intercepted and tecodcd Dec. 6, 1941. Bratton, then in the intelligence section, had said in an affidavit last year to Lt. Col. Henry C. Clausen that he had directed Col. C. C. Dusenbury to deliver the first 13 parts to Marshall that night. "Then you, swore to a false statement," thundered Keefe. "I did not," said Bratton. Committee counsel Seth W. Richardson broke in lo say that there ought to be a distinction between "charging- < a witness with committing perjury" and saying that he had givrai an incorrect^statement. Chinese Urged to Follow Examples Of Their Allies By JAMES I). WHITE SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 15— (ft')-.China showed temper today. To hear Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek speak, half a million Shanghai Chinese jammed into the only centrally-located spot big enough to held the largest crowd in Shanghai's history — the great, oval ra>:c course in the middle of town. This setting— from which Chinese long were excluded by the 'foreigners who built it — provided a dra'mn- lic emphasis for what Chiang told his Hag-waving, cheering audience. As tho Chinese :;tood on the grass tcnniu courts, bowling greens, and the golf course inside the track, , Don't Fail to Attend the BOY SCOUT MERIT BADGE SHOW Sat., Feb. 16.

Holms, director of the Scotls Bluff county health unit, is the victim of his own investigations. Checking a reported case of German measles, he contracted the disease and is now confined to his home. Chiang waved his white-gloved hiinds anil said: "Eight vears ago it would not have been possible ior us to convene here, but today wo again are masters of Shanghai." "We now are a free and independent people, especially with the abolition of extraterritoriality," said Chins, referring to the system of special rights which foreigners used to enjoy in China. He then spoke of the responsibilities which go with freedom, and soberly \\rgsd his listeners to follow the example of their Allies. "If we wish lo be able to stand side by side with them we will have to observe discipline, be responsible have a clear sense -of ethics anc loyalty, and know shatne_. "I shall give you a few worus of advice. Anything you have to do today, finish it. To carry that out you can have me as an example. I will be your model." •There is a great distinction be- | westen tween perjury and making a false o <-< ( , r statement," Keefe argued. Richardson wid he couldn't see it. Kecfe declared he wasn't making any charge of perjury. Bratton said he had changed his testimony because of conversations with various officers and examination of records which he said refreshed his- memory. The question of extending the inquiry, now thrsc months old, will be put up to congress in a resolution. HEAD IN THE CLOUDS WORl/AND. Wyo.; Feb. 15— (/P)— Any plans Herman Rauchfuss of Worland and Henry Schmidt of Lovell had for raising cattle on the planets of Mars or Pluto have been more or less left in space.

While Chiang spoke thus, foreign businessmen— including- some A- mericaus — pondered in their Shanghai offices the uncertainties many of them still think exist, six months al'U-t the war has ended, that pre- of peace-time construction business.

Informed persons said others ol the group already have been credited with indirectly helping the army develop deadly rockets described by ordnance experts as more effective than the V-l and V-2 missiles .which the nazls used to bombard London and other targets. Great Britain and Russia have been making similar use of German scientists. "These individuals are chpsci from those fields where Gerrhai progress is of scientific important to us, and in which these scientists have played a dominant issue," Pat terson wrote Fulbright. '•Throughout their stay in th United States these experts wilt b under the supervision of the wa department but will be utilized fo appropriate military projects of th army and navy."
