WACO (Sp.'t—Geologists of the U. S. Geological Survey now believe a natural outcropping of salt which pollutes the Brazos River is part ot a huge strata of salt which also contaminates streams in New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas. The geologists, working on a report for the Brazos River Authority, said the huge salt bed was created during the Permian Ago, several million years ago.

(AP) — The Kaiser Steel Corp. and the United Steelworkers of America are asking the public to sit in permanently on future relations between company and union. The goal: to eliminate strike's.

Kaiser said: "We have found waltz and when they should thum- ba, sort out-the cue* for the arrival at the president and vice president, and. in general, try to keep the balls from becoming brawls. With 12,000 revelers expected at the Armory and other thousands at the hotels, thai is no small assignment. But to Davis, the pied piper of high society, it is no more difficult than helping John D. Rockefeller Jr. push a piano across a crowded room (because he didn't li're th" location of the band) or persuading Harry Truman that, no matter how much he hated it, people expected to hear the "Missouri Waltz." Diplomacy is his beat, along with the fast foxtrot and the cha cha.
