Thus he pledg- in concert with carry out the pro- the American proposal ;V#JftR thottMrh it was vetoed by Rus- and taken out of the hands of MAJOR ITEM .. action cleared the last ttaf6f political item from the se• Ktlrlty council's aerenda. The council adjourned until March 21 when It Will tionvene in New York City— unless convoked earlier by C. Freita$-Valle of Brazil, who succeeds N. J. t). Makln of Australia as council president. The Veto power is held onlv by the "Big Five" powers — the.Unit- ed States, Great Britain, Russia, Prance and China. Granting the (powerful right to the Bie Five was ft major issue when the United Nations organization charter was set tit) in San Francisco, meeting bitter opposition from some of the teliio.ller nations. . While the day lone dismite went ton before the council, Russia brought in a new charge that Polish troons in Italy under British rrromand were a possible threat to Yugoslavia. Soviet Foreign Vice-Commissar Andrei Vishinskv, saying he was acting on behalf of the Yugoslav government, filed a memorandum with United Nations Secretary-General Trvgve Lie which declared the Polish trooos were "a oossibtc threat to the peace, calm and order" on the Yugoslav-Italian frontier. The memorandum asserted the Polish troops of Gen. Wladyslaw Anders were "aggressive and osten- sifclv threatening." Neither Russia nor Yugoslavia asked for council action, but merely that members be familiarized with contents of the memorandum. The Polish government in a note handed to the British yesterday demanded that the Brhish demobilize the 107.000 Polls troons in Italy and send them back to Poland. The British said negotiations were under way for return of Fbllsh troops both in. England and Italy to their homeland. The memorandum charged the Anders army had been moving closer to the Yugoslav frontier, and was recruiting Yugoslavs "Quislings" under the slogan "fight against communism in Yugoslavia." British Foreign Secretary firnest Bcvin denied the Polish forces were drawn up against any line in northern Italy, saying they were just dotted about. Vice Foreign Minister SSygmunt jModzclewskl of Poland said he did ,nol personally plan to press for United Nations action on the matter, but that his government might, insist. I The Svria and Lebanon proposal submitted by Edward R. Stettinius, jr.. aimed at meeting approval of all 'council members, provided that the ;council take note of all statements' .made at the Levant hearing, ex• press confidence that the troops .would be withdrawn as soon as practicable, and that negotiations by parties concerned to decide a time for withdrawal be undertaken without delay. A majority of the members, including Britain, lined up in favor cf direct negotiations for fixing a specific date for early withdrawn! of the troops. Russia, Poland and Egypt held out in opposition, arguing that France and Britain should agree now. GM Strike (Continued from page 1) and costly strike would be settled over the week-end. Dewey .'epori/Pd "considerable progress" was made during the Inlks. which continued until after 7 p. m. During a noon recess. Dewey said the morning session was devoted to ii coneral discussion of the issues involved in the strike that has idled 175.000 OM production workers since Nov. 21. Dewey asked both sides to revif.w their positions while at lunch. The UAW was reported ready to a n cept GM's offer of an 18 1/2 cents (10.5 percent) per hour wage incre-ise against the union's demand for 19 1/2 cents ('17.5 percent) as recommended by President Truman's fact-findins hoard. In return for this concession, the union was believed to be seeking full restoration of the 1945 contruot canceled by GM on Dec. 10. Too union officials continued to deny, however, that the UAW has receded from its 19 1/2 cents demand. When the union rejected GM's 13 1/2 cents offer last Tues- dnv the UAW negotiators abruntly wnlked out of a conference. Vice nresident Walter Reuther said then the union would not come back until OM was ready to meet the top figure. Hugh McSkimming TEACHER OP PIANO ,.

Opposition to any debatable question is a healthy move. The difference of opinion that exists in the petroleum industry will be resolved when the hearings are held and '-'inal action is tak^n by our government. The Independent Petroleum association of America has twice recommended ratification of the agreement, first after lengthy de- bale and discussion at its annual membership meeting and second through approval of the action of tlip members by the executive committee and state vice presidents.

They were Elementus Augustus Von Galen, .bishopo f Muenster, the iallest of the new princes of the church, Archbishop Josef Frings of Cologne and the ailing 80-year-old archbishop of Rouen, Pierre Petie de Julleville. Said the French prelate: "In the church there are no vanquished or victors—all are equal." For an entire hour, the longest audience given any of the 29 cardinals-designate so far, the pope questioned the Cologne archbishop about conditions in the occupied reich. Frings said the pope showed "paternal affection" for Germany. The German prelate said his country was the poorest In Europe" because we have been destroyed. We have little food and factories are being continuously closed by. the Allies." Capilol Hill (Continued from page one) ings on universal military training legislation. A second presidential nomination, that of James K. Vardaman to a 14-year term on the federal reserve board, comes before a senate banking subcommittee early in the week. Ready for action- on the senate floor is a new wage-hour bill raising the minimum pay rate from 40 to 65 cents an hour and broadening the wage-hour act to cover an additional 4,000,000 to 6,000,000. persons not covered by present law. Also on the senate docket is final action on the nomination of George Allen for a two-year term on the reconstruction finance corporation board. Likely to reach the senate floor before the end of the week is a house-passed $5,500,000,000 independent offices appropriation bill financing, among other agencies, the veterans administration. After dealing with miscellaneous minor legislation Monday, the house will take up the highly controversial bill to make permanent the federal school lunch program. Opponents have been lambasting it as a first definite step in the direction ui' federal controls of public schools. Two days of the house's week have been set aside for debate on housing legislation. Written by the banking committee, the bill would continue allocation and priorities on building material, but price ceilings on new houses, and give war veterans a priority on both new and old housing. A strong move is developing to add to the till a subsidy provision for the building industry. New Hospital (Continued «from page 1) officers and members of the board of directors. W. B.

The most important office is that of judge of the 31st district. Walter Rogers, incumbent district attorney, and H. B. Hill, lawyer of Shamrock, have thrown in their hats. Hill an- nounbcd several weeks ago; Rogers announced a week ago. There has been no entries yet for the office of district attorney, another key office. At least one name, that of Tom Braly, recently returned service man and attorney, has been mentioned. But there has been no direct word from Braly. One of the important contributions of the Greeks to humanity was a system of logic. "This special hospital committee study is the result of requests from a number of citizens and the medical profession of this .county that the chamber of commerce consider Ithe needs for additional hospital fa- |cilities in our county." UNANIMOUS VOTE He said the committee voted unanimously that there was a need for a general hospital. Reno Stinson, who headed the committee which studied the needs, said: "The committee secured the services of an architect who had had considerable experience with hospitals. The committee studied reports from other county hospitals in the state, secured information from the U. S. department of public health, and received (he Cooperation of the medical' association in getting estimates on the cost of the required equipment. The committee also studied the county tax structure and called in tax representatives of the various oil companies for advice and suggestions." The committeemen have spent several weeks of effort in. getting together figures on the cost. The chamber and the committee have sought to interest private capital in erecting such institution here, but has reported failure in that. The name of 10 perpent of the taxpaying voters of the last election are necessary on the petition before the court will consider it. Members of the board of directors who attended the final meeting Saturday are: W, B. Weatherred, chairman; L. H. Johnson, C. A. Hul'I, F. E. Shryock, Ray Scott, Crawford Atkinson, A. A. Schuno- man, D. V. Burton, J. C. McWilliams, Irvin Cole, Henry Kills and Wayne Phelps. The petition committee is composed of Johnson, Cgrl Benefiel, C. P. Pursley, Atkinson and Joe Key. Chamber officials said it was hoped the petition would be ready for submission to the commissioners court at its meeting on Feb. 25. The petition being circulated would have the court call an election to empower the court "to issue the bonds of (Gray) county in the total principal sum of $550,000 to mature serially within any given number of years not to exceed 20 years from the date thereof, bearing interest at the rate of not to exceed two and one-half per centum per annum, and so levy a tax sufficient to pay .the interest on said bonds and create sinking fund sufficient to pay the principal thereof at maturity for the purpose of establishing and equipping a county hospital and for all necessary permanent improvements and buildings in connection therewith pursuant to authority conferred by the constitution and laws of the State of Texas, particularly Section 9 of Article 8 of the constitution and Chapter 1, Title 22 and Chapter 5, Title 71, revised civil statutes of 1925." StwS? fKt&e 1) ttife wfe mtrsl wot* frohstently" for the eXtatfttfon of fiettiand." Anderson expressed tfte view that If agriculture is not to suffer economically from this increased productive capacity, it must help see to it thftt full employment at good wages is maintained for those working outside of agriculture and that steps are taken to hold a "considerable" tjortion of the present export market. "Like the rest of our economy, agriculture faces difficult reconver- sion problems. In order to deal with them it must look back and look ahead. The look back will show how war has changed agriculture -* how it has altered the style and volume of production, the production capacity, the soil, arid other farm resources. "These resources," he said, "must now be fitted to the tasks of the future." Among the heeds of the future, the secretary said, are changes in the marketing system to narrow the spread .between prices received by farmers ahd prices paid by consumers. "To find a'market In industry," he said, "farm products must sell at prices that Would make them the cheapest sources among alternative raw materials." Anderson said export markets for farm commodities will depend upon the "kind of world we help to build." Chapman (Continued from pagp one) tions resources, but what do we actually know about them? "We should take the lead, not in competition with private industry, but in evaluating exactly what we have," He gave as an example the continental shelf, the comparatively shallow bed of the ocean which reaches far out from shore. "There's oil there. All geologists say so," Chapman declared. "But no private -concern could afford to take such a gamble, so it's up to the government to do the job. Certainly no comprehensive program is possible until we know exactly what resources we have." Chapman doesn't exoect to have much time to deal in theories, however. Normally there's the secretary of Ihe interior and his three assistants. Now there's jtist a Chapman. He was the only assistant Harold Ickes had left — and when Ickes stepped out yesterday, Chapman inherited duties four men ordinarily share. §.

CIO President Philip Murray and several of his top aides were expected to leave Washington for Pittsburgh tonight or tomorrow. Union leaders said they believed virtually all of the strikers Would oe bacK at work 'by the middle of next week. The key to the TJ. S. Steel corporation settlement was government approval of an average increase or $5 a ton on both carbon ahd alloy steel. The order covering this increase reportedly was signed today by Stabilization Administrator John C. Collet as one of his final official acts.
