We know that in this trying period, between a war that is over and a peace that is not yet secure, the destitute and the on- prcssed of the earth look chiefly to us for .sustenance and support until they can again face life with self-confidence and self-reliance." The President spoke after Canadian Prime Minister W. L. Mac- Kcnzie King quoted him as having said previously that "the breaking of the peace anywhere is the concern of peace-loving nations everywhere," and declared "this statement of American policy might equally be a .statement of Canadian policy." MacKenzie King voiced the admiration of- the Canadian people for "the qualities of humor, sincerity and courage and the capacity for friendship," he said the President possessed and which has "been particularly evident since the last Congressional elections." Asserting that he had had experience in doaling with legislatures controlled by the opposition parly the veteran Prime Minister observed humorously: "It may serve a;- a, note of encouragement to you wlnir I say I have yet to find that such embarrassments art' necessarily a bar to, many years of office. 1 ' Tho President, speaking after a round of receptions which followed hi:, good will visit, to Ottawa'with Mrs. Truman and hid daughter, Margaret, said ho counted good neighbor Canada "in the forefront of those who shave these objectives anc'. ideals."

Scott, director of the All-American Soap Box Derby, gives some pointers on the race, and on how to build the best types of racing cars, to three city champions at the Akron finals. Scott advises taking plenty of time to build the car, a thorough study of the official rules, and careful workmanship. * * * * * it- Derby Director Urges Beys lo Take T!;me in Building Soap Box Racers "Don't try to build your Soap Box Derby racing car in a few days, 1 ' said Myron E. Scott, national Derby director, who gives some words of idvice to the thousands of Derby contestants throughout the country. "Take your time with the car, study the rules and design a smart, streamlined racer. Remember, you arc going to compote against hun- Irecls of amateur craftsmen in your ocal community. And in the rational finals at Akron, you will be up against the best drivers and the best cars from all over the ration. 'Be sure to stay within the letter of rules, nnd plan your car and drive your race in keeping with the spirit 'of the rules and with the best traditions of Derby, good sportsmanship." Some other do's and don'ts from cott are: Don't forget the driver's license, vhich must contain an itemized cost report of the car and must be fastened to the car itself before race time. Treat your wheel and axle sets care. Use good oil and be sure your wheels are lined up before 'our first test-run. You may paint your car any color you wish, but don't paint the of- icial Soap Box Derby wheels. Don't test your car on a public Street or highway. Play it the safe vay at all times. Have the car transported to the rack, or inspection point, on un tutomnbilc or truck. Do not tow it ehind an automobile. Build your car to fit your body and your weight. If you arc in doubt, about the wciglrt of your car, weigh it, or parts of it, while it is under construction. Many stores rave large scales you can use. If you want to keep tire wheels off the ground while the car is .rot, in use, build sturdy wooden .lorses 10 inches high for supports.

Commission (('niitlniii'il V'rmn Tutio 11 He added that the Electrical Board is constantly being placed in the middle of a competitor's fight. According to Grossman, Wayne Wallace, manages of the LaNora Theatre, had come ,to him several weeks ago to intercede for him with the city manager in order to get a permit. A temporary permit was given to the LaNora Theatre for a 30-day period recently by the city manager. Under questioning by the mayor and the city manager,. Dennis Pci- pcnspan said that he quit his job because the former city commission would not back him up on jobs he inspected and added that one electrical contractor would pay his full inspection fees and go by the electrical code while another contractor refused flatly to do either. Feigenspan also pointed out that the present ordinance is not strong enough to enforce itself with the National Electrical Code. The hearing today came after T. M. Brooks, manager of the City Electric Co., in company with Wayne Wallace and Attorney Arthur Teed appeared before the City Commission last week and brought the complaint that Jones turned down the job alter he said that it looked OK to him. Wallace reiterated Brooks' claim that Jones .said the job looked all riant, but tlrat he was not in a position to pass it. Just what Jones mount by "not in a position to pas.s it," has not yet been fully explained to the satisfaction of tire City Commission. the meeting in which Brook:; made his complaint to the City Commission, Wayne Wallace told the Commission that up until shortly after Brooks set up business in town the theatre work was done by Frank Hunt, manager of the, Davis Electrical Co. who was the only electrical contractor in town ^t the time. Close to Jhe noon recess of the City Commission, City Manager Steve Matthews told the Commission that the problem is not a new one and becomes serious every day and that something must be done about, it as soon as possible. With few exceptions all parlies this morning carefully avoided the direct use of names of electrical contractors except, when Henry Ma~ tlrniu stated that Frank Hunt was on the Electrical Board with him when it was first organized, but that Hunt since Iras not been on tire board. Other routine business was taken up by the Commission shortly before the electrical discussion camo Bold Continues Hearing Regard fo Texas Ciiy Wafer AUSTIN—(/P)—Texas City industries cannot recuperate from effects of the recent disaster without "almost immediate" diversion of 'large quantities of surface water to that area, witnesses have testified before the State Board of Water Engineers. The consolidated hearing on water rights to Texas City and Oal- veston continued today with the presentation of evidence' and tes- tlnioiij' in support of an . application fro.m the Briscoc Irrigation Company. "The need .for water is growing increasingly acm*." attorneys for Briscoc said yesterday. Oaivcston wants water BO bad tKxt they will take it from cither the Brazos or San Jacinto Rivers." "Water will have lo be made available in the almost immediate future if the great industries at Texas City arc to rcbwild and reinvest in present and planned properties." Witnesses for Briscoe said that company could deliver water Jin the shortest lime because its proposed extension canal was shorter than those planned by cither the San Jacinto River Construction and Recli. nmion District or the American Canal Company. Yesterday the Water Board decided lo continue hearing of the Briscoc application despite protests from the other two applicants that it did not have jarlsriction. The Briscoc Company is a party to a suit now pending in the Stake Supreme Court which concerns T,sx- as City water rights. In 1940 tllb company refused permission to divert' water to Texas City. They obtained a favorable judgement against the water board in a Travis County District Court but the judgment was reversed by the Court of Civil Appeals. Recently .Briscoc asked the State Supreme Court for a writ of error. Two Lefors Stores Are Burglarized The Foxworth Galbmith Lumber Company, Lefors, was burglarized Monday night of $235 and s.'.x radios, while the same thieves are behoved to have taken two large hams,' a, small quanity of other foods and 35 cartons of cigarettes from the nearby Red and White Grocery. It was the second break-in' that has occurred at both stores in the past year, it is reported. Chief Deputy Sheriff Jeff Guth- flc, who investigated the case, said that the thieves pried open a rear window of the lumber yard and made their way from the main office to another office that housed .the safe. The safe's combination knob was knocked off several months ago and had not been repaired, giving the robbers an easy time in breaking through its thin Sinner door to ' remove UYD cash. They picked up six radios and took them along. At thtr Red and White Grocery, also robbed several months ago, Guthric said, they pried their way through the front door and stole the two hams and cigarettes -after they helped themselves to a bottle hf milk and some soda pop, eviden- tally used to wash clown some hastily made lunch from the store's stock. They made their get-a-way through the back. door. Guthrie stated that some faint leads were given and some suspects may be picked up. Atom Control (f'uiilimK.'rl Kront I'UKR 1) tion signed by nations. 4—The Commission shall be composed of nations on tiro Atomic Energy Commission, shall select its personnel on an international basis, and "periodically carry out inspection of facilities for mining and production of atomic materials." 5—Tne Commission shall check existing stockpiles, investigate and verify the accounting and study production operations. 6—The Commission shall "hava access to any facilities for mining production and stockpiling of materials." 7—Signatory slate to the convention prohibiting atomic weapons must have a right to carry on "unrestricted scientific research" directed toward discovery of methods for use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes. Gromyko also asked that the commission assure a wide exchange of information among nations, and carry out special investigations in cases "where suspicion of violations arises. 11 Gromyko told the working committee that Russia would accept tire commission's stand for an in* ternational system of control and inspection instead of pressing the .Soviet version calling fer a system of international control alone. But Gromyko did not define what Russia understands by the term inspection. Some delegates said they hoped he would now give such a definition.
