WORK OHi IT'S ST8AHGE NOBO&Y HAS EVER THOUGHT OP SELLING PADS OF WALL PAPER FOR LITTLE KIDS TO WHIR flf i J POLICE Firmer Attitude Toward Russia Gets Unofficial Senate Approval Vandenberg Makes UNO Meet Report WASHINGTON, Feb. 28— (AP)— The senate lined up today behirtd Hie stand of Senator Vandenberg (R-Mich) that the .United -.States take a firm line in dealing with Soviet Russia On Controversial global problems. Trie backing was /unofficial, since no legislation was in- volv6d, but Vandenberg evidently had won his colleagues' support in the formal report he made on his observations and conclusions as a delegate to the recent UNO session in, London. From democrats and republicans alike came unbroken endorsement of the way Vandenberg appraised U: S.-Soviet relations in his speech yesterday to an applauding senate. Housing Program Jeopardized by New GOP Drive WAfijttiNGTON, Feb. The "administration's emergency housing program fought with its back to the wall today as the house pressed toward a vote on the legislation', asked by President Truman to provide 2,700,000 new homes. j Threateningly strong support mustered behind a republican-proposed substitute for the administration measure, although Chairman Spencc (D-Ky) of the banking committee told nfawsmen that "the President's hbiislng program couldn't operate" II the .substitute prevails. In an effort to.speed a decision one Way or the olheiv the house Was convened an hour earlier than usual/ , Republicans and some democrats "Were lined 1 up behind the substitute legislation sponsored by Rep.

Senator Hatch (D-NM), a foreign relations member who is a close peiv sational fiend of President Truman, said Vandenberg "expressed my sentiments about Russia exactly." SOLONS AGREE Similarly, Senator Pullbrlght (D- Ark), who has criticized what he said was the administration's failure to assume consistent leadership in world affairs, raid he thought the Michigan senator was "absolutely correct in the essence of his statements." Senator Ball (R-Minn) said he agreed 100 per cent with Vandenberg's position on Russia. Senator Russell (D-Ga) raid he subscribed to the general outline Vandenberg laid down and hoped the President and secretary of state would draw clearly the line beyond which Vandenberg said the world should be told the United States is unwilling to compromise in its international dealings.

AP Leased Wire Price 5 Cents Four Factors In Pacific Are Answer International security in the Pacific is dependent upon four factors, W. Leon Godshall, author, world traveler, and lecturer, told a group of Tampans at the Junior high school auditorium last night. lie was the third in a series of four speakers sponsored In lectures here by the Pampa Rotary club in conjunction with Rotary International. Kllilting a broad, first-hand knowledge of the key countries touching the Pacific, Mr. Godshall, quite communicative in delivery, enumerated these as the four factors conducive to pcacs in the Pacific: 1. A MILITANT RUSSIA must be induced to support the idea of peace, through a straightforward diplomatic policy on the part of the U. S. 2.. JAPAN'S PEOPLE must be indoctrinated with the ideas of democracy, the principle of live and let live. 3. CHINA. MUST BE accelerated from her sluggish traditions thi'ough the help of the United States. She must become a strong nation industrially and socially. 4. UNITED NATIONS organization must develop a power of 'policing' through consultation, and mus exert that pow;r with the unified consent of the members, especiallj by the three big members—U. S. Russia, and Great Britain. The speaker spent a good deal o: time explaining why he thought the factor of military force and poten tial play an important part In the firelatUms.jol nations He.:;-dl&«pot, say that; might rrad&.rlgfiOttkemphg- sfeed the fact that the forces b: right must be exerted through diplomacy and commerce. The world IB less isolated today, he said, because relations among men are more intensive. Relations clubs such as Rotary and the institute of international understanding, have made peoples more appreciative o: each's aims and needs. Godshall, as have many other speakers on world politics, said he did not believe we had to fear Russia. "Our interests parallel, touch but they do not clash" at any place But those conditions, he warned Sec FOUR FACTORS, Page 3 COLLEGE CAMPUS—-1946 STYLE the $ale of livestock is -Jfo 4«3§.83.'

Dr. C, 3. Whltfield, director of the station, explained the operation of several different projects now being conducted, ' , He explained that it takes months at a time to prove whether a new variety of crop of some new method is valuable, because each experiment is proven conclusively good or undesirable before it is made public. Among the more, important crop projects completed" there recently was the development of Westar wheat, which is coming into, increasing popularity in this sectipn of the country. Several whea.t farmers of this area planted the wheat and found it to be. more prouth resistant and higher yielding,' •'-•»' Dy.

Major Shozo Masui, Sgt. Koichi Masuda, and Pvt. Yosaburo Shira- kawa. American defense counsel said the condemned men probably would ask U. Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer, theater commander and reviewing authority, for clemency—but the no higher appeal was planned. Col.,KameJi Pukumoto, commandant of Japan's Hankow gendarmerie, was sentenced to life imprisonment. Terms of other ranged from 18 months to 20 years.

Hirohito Nahes Tour To See How People Are Living TOKYO, Feb. 28— (P)— Two thousand subjects cheered Emperor Hirohito as he visited a department store today but the communist party quickly censured his recent public tours as a "pre-election campaign for the sake of reactionary political parties." ; . . _.,.... . "We demand tha't the emperor and all other war criminals be banned from carrying out any su:h" campaign, read a resolution passed by the party convention. The resolution is to be presented at the imperial household tomorrow. General MacArthur never has branded the emperor as a war criminal suspect, but the communists and some other Japanese elements have. f Cheering Japanese broke through thin police linos to crowd around the emperor's automobile as he lelt till' store. The event was unprecedented in ] Japan's history. Ho even lifted his hat to tho crowd. Officers had difficulty clear ing a way for the automobile to pul out from the curb. The store ~vas one of several pla •ccs that Hirohito, without a guaru visited to see how his people are liv ing.

P. Fort, manager of the local United States Employment Service office. A substantial number of requests for laborers is coming in to the local office aside from the regular orders for skilled laborers which are difficult to fill, said Fort. / Larger construocion companies are looming to lire, according to Fort, and have requested placed about 30 orders for men during the past week, 60 the week before. A few jobs are coming in from retail and wholesale businesses, said Fort, which -.ire a great help in the balancing of the labor situation. There is also a "sprinkling of jobs over the fields" for drillers and roustabouts. On the whole the improved labor picture of last week has continued this week. Fort stated, adding that Pampa is in an enviable position in relation to employment primarilly because of lack of war-time indus- wing. With permanent headquarters at March Field. Calif., the wing Is made up of four groups—the 444th. based at Merced, Calif., the 462nd at McDill. Fla.,. and the 469th and 509th at Roswell.

Schools tries whicl^ could not _ be converted j ceive $30 for each student included ,..„.. . . to peace-time production Although the office has about as many contacts for jobs as before, it is believed that immigration of potential workers has slacked off, the balance being filled by returning veterans. 'Please Find My Husband at Once!' "Please find my husband at once! —was only one of the numerous requests received this month in thi local Red Cross office. The plea was contained in a letter written by a deserted wife in a nearby town However, she gave only her husband's name and no other identifying information as to where he might be. Another letter was received asking that we change the father's name on a child's birth certificate so that a woman's present husband might receive additional points as a father and be released from the army. Impossible as these requests may seem they are not ignored. Further investigation is always made and help given when possible.
