f AW*A NEWS , February It, Discuss President d States iirigton and the many that faced him as presi- wfts the subject of a talk be- fdre the Pampa Rotary club by Ro- tftrteft Travis Lively at the club's tegular weekly luncheon yesterday. Lively, well-known local historian and world affairs enthusiast, said there toe're many "debunkers" whose tendency is to slur the names of iStfemls persons but Washington's totalities as president far overshadowed any personal faults. Among the problems that faced Washington, Lively said, was the payment of the national debt of nearly $85,000,000, which was a staggering figure to the 13 small colonies. Washington so wisely chose his cabinet that the country was put t(n"i& ^ou'nd basis only a few years after the first president's death. ,.;Such a man as Alexander Ham- ilfijft, whose work brought about orderly settlement of the debt, was jirfthe • tsxarhrile of Washington's ftbJlity to judge men, Lively con- fftitred. ' tTntler Washington's guidance, vicious "liquor" trade that threatened to disrupt America's relations With other countries was quelled by in'en under Washington, even though i'lw as necessary to call out troops Lively pointed out that no other man could have commanded the respept and confidence of 13 clis- joln'ted states and bring them together as a nation. He concluded by urging Rotarians to'further study the great acts of Washington and to carry out his ideals in their work and associations. Geoffrey Morgan, Rotary Institute speaker, gave a brief talk on aviation as a prelude to his main address Bast night. In his talk he cited the great work of General H .L. George, whose efforts brought about the organization of the air transport command. Morgan also said that some system of retaining the right to use air bases built by the United States in foreign lands should be worked out immediately. Winston Savage, scoutmaster of 'Boy Scout Troop. 20, which is sponsored by the Rotary club, made an announcement concerning the annual banquet to be given Monday Tiight in the Palm Room for the troop. Each Rotarian will .bring as hia guest one member of the troop. DeLea Vicars, club president, reminded members of the regional meet in Amarillo and asked all who planned to attend to notify the club secretary. DAY Chapter (Continued from page one) erans of the World War." So effective 'did the DAY become in causing congress to adopt remedial legislation, in causing a "house cleaning" of tjie then predecessor of the present veterans' administration, and in representing thousands and thousands of disabled veterans and successfully handling their claims, that in 1932 congress chartered the DAV as the exclusive spokesman and representative of the disabled of World War I, and their dependents. It was but natural that in 1942, congress amended the DAV federal charter to eliminate the words "Of the World ;War" and broadened its eligibility and representation to include all of America's disabled, of all its war' and campaigns. : The DAV, as of December 1, 1945, had 80,000 members, of which over 25,000 were life members. More than 50 per cent of the total membership are World War II veterans. As of that date there were nearly 40 active state departments and 1200 DAV chapters, with more being formed every day. ..Each chapter determines for itself who it will and will not accept into membership, but all members must be eligible. The DAV, as an organization, in non-political and npn-sectai'ian, and offers aid and asiisstance. -to any disabled Veteran and the dependents of any deceased Veteran, without regard to. race, color, creed or station in life. The DAV is nationwide, anil represents 'its members in Washington, as well as in the legislative bodies of every state, in all matters affecting their rights and benefits as disabled veterans. Every law vhich congress has adopted, of direct benefit to the wartime disabled, veteran, was fought for by the DAV. Its expert staff in Washington is today pressing for additional legislation to cure existing inequalities and injustices. DAV national service officers, throughout the nation, have advised and assisted thousands of war- disabled to prove the service-origin of their disabilities, obtain needed medical treatment, hospitalization, vocational training, monetary benefits and suitable employment. The PAY has and is training more paid (national service officers than all other veterans' organizations, combined. , , ^N r— Ban on Peacetime Draft Developing WASHINGTON, Feb. 21.— (IP)— A proposed international ban on -ime draft armios developed support today in the house committee. g favor for the idea came as the committee neared of three months of hearing ' yon for a universal mili- l program for the United (D-I?y) told re- j woui4 te&e no towing (Con'tirmed from page 1) democratic leaders have yet to share this view. A second legislator today urged Pauley to withdraw. Senator Morse iR-Orni, told reporters he had just returned from a speaking trip which took him through several states and that "this Pauley case has the country rocked." Senator Bilbo (D-Miss>, however, sided with Pauley. In another statement he congratulated the President for "standing pat" on Pauley "because I want en opportunity to vote for his continuation since this Is the best way that I know of to show my utter contempt for Harold Ickes." Ickes resigned as secertary of the interior after taking, caustic issue with the President for saying Ickes could have ijeen mistaken about his testimony on Pauley. Tckes said Pauley told him in 1944 that $300,000 in democratic campaign contributions could be obtained from California oil men if the government would drop its efforts to establish federal ownership of oil- bearing tidelands. Pauley denied this: Manchuria (Continued from page one 1 ) ents said reliable Chinese sources there confirmed reports of renewed government-communist clashes in Manchuria that Russian troops fought with communists near Lia- oyang Monday.') (The Chinese said they saw pictures of Russian bodies beside those of Chinese communists. Some 300 rounds of light artillery were iired at government troops, two of whom were wounded. (Chinese also said the Russians were heavily reinforcing the garrison- at Dairen with "several tens ol thousands" of troops. (A Chinese source in Changchun, the Manchurian. capital, reported having seen communist Eighth army soldiers armed with Russian tom- my guns. The report was not confirmed by any other source, but Chungking reports yesterday that communists in Manchuria were equipped with Russian tanks and guns.)

Prices on the menu on which Duncan wrote list tea or coffee at Hotel Geneve in Mexico City nt 12 cents a clip (60 cents Mexican money); Mexican bean soup 30 cents: road pork with apple sauce, 80 cents; or Irish stew and dumplings, breaded veal cutlet, Kentucky fried chi'ck- en and Tried liver and onions, served with a baked potato, rice pudding and sweet peppers. Chocolate tapioca cream costs 10 cents at the same hotel, also pr .ich shortcake with whipped cream and conserved pears with cake. "It's difficult I o eat any meal anywhere for less than $1.25," Duncan inserts on the colorful Mexican- decorated menu, illustrating "Mexican, Culinary Utensils." none of which remotely resemble the splin- did mix-master to be given away at the Lions Minstrel show tonight and tomorrow n'ght. The trip to Mexico City is one which has been planned by Duncan for the past 10 years, it was reported by a friend of his. Not until now has the Hughes-Pitts, Inc., insurance man been able to make it. It is believed that the Duncans will return to Pnmprv when they are ready. 1-1 _-~ f • - i Minstrel Show (Continued from page 1) sal, had glimpsed the costumes to be worn in the Minstrel. Morgan, a white-haired, tall, English-man, said it was his opinion the Lions Mm- ..strel would be worth seeing just for the costumes alone. But of course there's more. There'.? a 40-momber chorus of the best mixed voices in pampa There's the suave interlocutor, Carl Eenefiel; a host of talented dark- faced chillun' and then there's the end men and Jimmy-McCune, and tlie inimitable Wed Wedgeworth directing the show, seemingly drawing a steady flow of rhythm from the shoestrings of every last member of the entire cast. The chorus opsns the"program in a rising version of "Are You from LMxic?" With endmen interchanging witticisms with Mr. Interlocutor between acts, the next, feature is "Can't You Hear Me Callin' Caroline?" by Chick Hi'ckman. Watch this,—particlarly the Mills Brothers' leg action in Hickman's torso. "Moonlight Bay" will be sung by Emma Lena Horn, with "Dapper Dan thn Minstrel Man." Max Presnell, giving support, including support of 'morale,' to Miss Horn with a soft-shoe tap daiice. Jackie Dunham really goes to town along with LaNelle Scheihagen in "Darktown Strutters Ball." The lighting ->f the stage is effective throughout the show. G. F. Branson will sing "Mighty I.nk a Rose" which no lover of the Irish could miss, and everybody loves the Ivis.'h; followed f>y husky-voiced frfca, Prandis surging "£foveet O'eor- gia BrOwn." This nftnffer alone is well worth uh& time and the IS cent cost of the ticket to the show. Its a soothing thing, breaking into bedlam at the close with the mighty assistance of the chorus. And the endman, which you can't forget. The first act is concluded with "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot." by Lt. Ed Atkins. Sounds like a good story ihf has to tell too, about the Ark and Pampa and Lefors and Mobeetie and Wheeler, but we couldn't understand him. Perhaps he'll bo, through chewing his chewing gum by tonight. Between act numbers will be given by Joan Coonrod, singing "Sweet Georgia Brown;" the "Rascals," members of the Senior high school quartette, in "I've Got Shoes," and Emma Lena Horn's version of "St. Louis Blues." Another all-chorus number, "Alexander's Ragtime Band," opens the second act, followed by Norman Carr (Fats O'Cookin) with the all-time favorite, "Short'nin 1 Bread." Carr's eye-work is worth watching here— sort of like, "Ma! He's Makin' Eyes at Me!" only, you wouldn't tell your mother. Then there's "Lonesome Road" by Bunny S:hultz. The thing sounds really deserted. Somewhere there's a number, "Sleep Kentucky Babe," by the Squeaky Door Quartette which is good fun. All children too will enjoy their old standby, "You Can't Get To Hebem," with Elizabeth Sewell taking the lead. Bill Hutchinson gives a fine rendition of "It's My Lazy Day," and Atom Test (Contitmsd ffbhi page one) bomb explodes over the target fleet in the waters of Bikini Atoll, 230 miles to the northwest. They speculate whether a tidal wave will sweep through the islands when the bomb explodes at the surface, and if waters will surge across the low coral atolls liberated from the Japanese two years ago. Eniwetok, as well as Bikini, Will be evacuated—because, even though it is 180 miles from Bikini, winds might strew it with radio active particles. No one can foretell what will happen, so no one is taking any chances. The islanders know that the at- no doubt the jitter-bugs will be in the grove when Dr. Malcolm Brown slithers "Blackeyed Susan Brown" on his trumpet. Then there's "Swanee," by Jackie Dunham in the best amateur reproduction of the famed Al Jolson song we've ever heard. Numbers at the Minstrel pass more qui:kly than it takes time to read about them, and its much more enjoyable. Tickets may still "be had at the Harvester. Berry, Richard and Wilson drugs. If you already have a ticket for tonight you may want to purchase another for tomorrow night's performance. Reserved tickets may be obtained at the door of the Junior high school auditorium at 7 o'clock. All proceeds are for the benefit of the Lions club park fund. (Continued ifcM fcage 1) will probably be reduced to theree and one-half, probably three. Long distance rates are less, about the same as that of travelinl {tollman plus lunch money, said Morgan. Not only passenger service, but cargo service is available emphasized Morgan. Air mail rates will probably be reduced in the near future, he added. Individual planes will probably reach a total of 500,000 Within 10 omic bomb is to be dropped. Officers have explained to them carefully, in simple terms, what is planned. The Bikini folk are preparing to leave, perhaps never to return. They accepted philosophically the selection of their coral islands for the tests, and on March 1 navy ships will begin moving them and their household belongings to the island of Rongerik, 135 miles to the east. There they will be re-established in new homes provided by the Americans. The story of this overwater migration Of Bakini's 167 natives will be a saga in itself. DR. L. J.
