Petition To Call Bond Election for $550,000 Hospital Being Circulated Revised Plans Drop Separate Nurses' Home A chamber of commerce spedial petition committee yesterday began the circula- tion'of a petition calling for a bond election in Gray county ih which the property taxpaying voters would be asked to support the issuance of county bonds in the sum of $550,000. PLANS REVISED Revised plans for a general hospital call for a 100-bed hospital, instead of a 150-bed - structure. However, the plans now call for 25 rooms for nurses within the hospital building. These rooms would be so" constructed that in the future they could be converted into hospital facilities if the need arose. Former plans called for a separate building or» the hospital site to be used by [ nurses. FINAL ACTION ON STUDY Final action on a special committee's Study on costs and needed facilities of a hospital for the county was taken yesterday afternoon in two meetings at the chamber of commerce office in the City hall. First, in a meeting at 3:30, the special committee recommended to the board of directors that the maximum bond issue be set at $550,000, and that the hospital contain facili- ^ies for 100 beds plus the nurses' irophif.' ..-.'.-• . * SEp<fNl> MEETING .

There is at least one person who has announced, most of them in paid political announcements in the Pampa Daily News, for a great portion of the important offices of the :ounty and district. County Judge Sherman White said yesterday "I will run again." He said hn would make his formal announcement within a few days. B. S. Via, local attorney, has formally announced his intention to run for the office of county attorney, which is now held by Bruce Parker, who has not yet indicated his intentions. •Tames Barrett announced several days ago that he would seek the office of county sheriff. The Incumbent, G. H.

S. proposal for negotiation of the demand by Syria and Lebanon that French and British troops be withdrawn immediately from the Levant. AMERICAN PLAN The soviet veto took the Levantine dispute out of the security council's hands, but British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevln pledged that Britain and France would carry out the American plan. Seven members of the council—a majority—had voted for the American proposal submitted by Edward R. Stettinius, jr. It would have permitted direct negotiations among Britain, France and the Levant for withdrawal of British and French troops from Syria and Lebanon. AGREE WITH PROPOSAL Soviet Foreign Vice Commissar Andrei Vishinsky then invoked the power of veto. Bevin and the french Foreign Minister, Georges Btdault, who had voluntarily abstained from voting, upheld the Russian's contention that under provisions of the world charter he had a right to use the veto. Both said, however, they rumored that he would be a candidate for ru-elecuon.

Co Out Legislative Program for Week WASHINGTON, Feb. 16.—W— Congressional leaders mapped out today a legicaltive program for the coming week filled with potential verbal fireworks. If they stick to it, there will be action galore on both sides of the capitol, in committee and on the floors of both the senate and the house. The shooting starts Monday when the senate naval committee resumes hearings on the nomination of Edwin Fauley to be undersecretary of the navy, and a senate-house committee, with a new lease on life until June 1, renews its investigation of the Pearl Harbor attack. Keeping pace with the senate, the house banking committee will start hearings the same clay on legislation to extend the life of the office of price administration beyond Anderson Sees Beyond Days m m Of Shortages WASHINGTON, Feb. 16— (&)— Secretary of Agriculture Anderson locked beyond the current period of world food shortages today to •plan for the time when American agriculture again may be confronted by price-depressing crop and livestock surpluses. He saw high-level employment at good pay for consumers as the primary solution for the problem, with development of exports and of industrial uses for farm products as •other necessary factors. "Now thai the war is over, we are moving back," he said, "toward our old ^bsition of virtual security in the matter of the food supply. "In 1946, it will be difficult to meet total requirements for American farm products; the relief demand, commercial exports, and our needs will substantially exceed the supplies available. This however, is just the current outlook," The secretary, in his annual re"port to • thg . President said that -necessarily a sign that agriculture will permanently h&ve adequate markets." He explained that agriculture emerges from the war with an expanded productive capacity, and added that such capacity docs not readily contract.

Attorney Is Accepted WASHINGTON, Feb. 16—</P)— Resignation of William R. Smith, jr.. of San Antonio as U. S. attorney for the western district of Texas was accepted today by Prcsi- ident Truman. Tho resignation, effective as of Vast January 17, was because of "personal" reasons, Smith said in his letter. the rapidly-dissolving steel strike spread throughout the nation todav and CIO President Philip Murray predicted that more than 90 percent of the workers in basic steel would be ready for work by Sunday night. Headed by a lote-afternocn agreement with Bethlehem Steel company, second largest producer in the industry, the list of signed contracts by nightfall covered nearly half of the 750,000 striking CIO Steelworkers. Shortly before Bethlehem signed, Republic Steel—third- ranking producer—Pittsburgh Steel and Crucible See! company announced agreements, as did the Aluminum Company of America. Later the Blow Kncx company said it had reached an agreement also. Murray told reporters he expected contracts to be signed before tomorrow night with Wheeling, Inland, Youngstown Sheet and Tube, National, Sharon and Allegheny-Ludlum. The Crucible contract will be signed tomorrow afternoon. FULL PRODUCTION A CIO spokesman said that agreement also had been reached with the Wickwire-Spencer steel division of the Colorado Fuel and Iron corporation on terms similar to those involving U.- S. Steel. Despite the termination of the walkout, however, Murray warned that the industry probably could not get back into full production before a week or 10 days. ESTABLISHED PATTERN In each of the Steel company contracts, the wage incerase agreed upon was the 18 >•. cents hourly pattern established last night by U. S. Steel corporation. The Aluminum company, however, agreed to a 10- cent boost—which Murray said wa* a "bookkeeping" adjustment to avoid use of fractions. With the solid front of the 27- *ctajr""oia "walkout crumbling, government officials here looked for further breaks in the strike line. See STEEL STIUKE, Page 8 Premier Appeals For Support of Japanese People TOKYO, Feb. 16—(/Pi—Premier Kijuro Shidehara appealed to .the Japanese people today to back the government wholeheartedly in a series of drastic measures aimed at halting the country's runaway inflation and throttling the rampant black market. Only thus, he said, could "impending catastrophe" be averted. Three imperial ordinances were issued as the first phase of the all- out anti-inflationary program. They virtually blocked all bank accounts, called in all banknotes of 10 yen (66 2/3 cents) or larger, authorized expropriation of staple foodstuffs and restricted iheir distribution to authorized channels.

Steelworkers By The Associated Press Sheffield S.eel company of Texas at Houston announced today it would meet the Steelworkers' union demands for an 18 1/2 cent hourly wage increase. The company was the first in the state to make public its action to fall in line with the national wage pattern cut for the industry last night by the United States Steel corporation. Sheffield proposed that 9 1/4 cents of the increase be made retroactive from Jan. 1 to Feb. 15. In Dallas the Murray company and other plaintiffs were granted a temporary injunction restraining the United Steelworkers of America (CIO) and Local 2097 from using violence or threats to prevent any other employes or authorized persons from entering or leaving the planL Houston sled workers believed that their 2Gl-day-old strike would be settled on the basis of the United .Spates titeel formula, 18 1/2 cents an Titfur J pay""in'el-caso. Pickets cheered news of the settlement and labor leaders predicted that Houston plants would fall in line with the uay scale within a week. Fifteen thousand workers at 12 Houston plants are affected. A contrary view was expressed in Dallas, where labor and management spokesmen saw little hope of returning nearly 2,000 workers to their jobs immediately. AFL workers at the Gulf Steel Tank company in Corpus Christi accepted a 10-cent hourly wage increase and are to retrurn to work Monday. Anolher Effort To Setile GM Halt Falls Short DF/TRCIT.
