Asserting that 'a shadow has fallen upon the scenes,so lately lighted by the Allied victory," the former British prime minister declared in an address prepared for delivery at Westminster college here: "Nobody knows what Soviet Russia and its communist international organization intends to do in the immediate future, or what are the limits, if any, to their expansive and prose- lyting tendencies." Pampan Loved By Young, Old Given Farewell Even before the 2:57 train nulled out yesterday Mrs. Mickey Conley was talking- to a soldier seated across the aisle. They probably became good friends by the time the caboose was out of the city limits. Mickey left Pampa to make her home with the French Sisters at the Chanel of St. Charles Rorro- meo. 3400 S. Grand boulevard, St. Louis, Mo. A host of friends were at the station to see her off. Mickey looked like some of the kind and gracious women you used to read about in fairy tales, or in biographical stories which ended up right. Mickey was smiling and laughing and talking along with everyone while she waited in the station for the train. The number of friends who arrived to see her off increased by the minute. When the train arrived all her friends went to her car with her. The conductor became a bit concerned, seeing the group, saying there were Pullman cars -down there. He seemed to think everyone was leaving Pampa and that there wouldn't be room for all.' Mrs. R. E. McKernan called to the worried conductor that only one person was leaving. Women started kissing and mauling Mickey just as she boarded the train. She didn't seem to like it a bit, Mrs. Polland who had been a friend of Mickey and her husband when they first came here about 19 years aeo, was there to sec Mickey off. Both their husbands died within a week about 15 years ago. Someone saw that Mickey was well taken care of and-seated. She waved from her chair, then would completely ignore everyone while she talked to the soldier across from her. Just before the train left a group of school children came to say good-bye, followed by a couple of Sisters, all running to make the train. Someone had to ran on the car window to draw Mickey's attention to them. Then Father Stack came as the train was about lo l^ave. A woman called to the trainman at the rear of the train, "Wait a minute, Father Stack is coming," He had some letters for Mickey, ' Mickey .waved as the train left, like a child when first taught how to SB.V goodbye. Some woman had said, "Don't let her see you cry," to the group. Mickey has been declared by many persons as the most beautiful person they have ever known, Stran- 4 See FAREWELL, Page 8 Hubbard Is Named DAY Commander The first meeting of the Pampa post'of the Disabled American Veterans, a non-political. organization with the purpose of helping disabled veterans secure and hold benefits to which they are entitled, was held at & o'clock last .'light in the Legion Britain's wartime leader gravely declared that prevention of another great war "can only be achieved by reaching now, in 1946, a good understanding ,on all points with Russia under the general authority of the United Nations Organization." •FRUITS OF WAR' While he said he does not belisve that the Soviet Union desires war, Churchill attributed to the Russians a desire for "the fruits of war and the indefinite expansion of their power and doctrines." "From what I have seen of our Russian friends and allies during the war, I am convinced that there is nothing they admire as much as strength, and there is nothing for which they have less respect than for military weakness," said the veteran statesman. ATOM BOMB SECRET He cautioned against releasing the secret of the atomic bomb at this time. Churchill, introduced by President Truman who accompanied him here from Washington; said he wanted to make clear that he spoke "only for myself" and that he had no official mission. TRUMAN SEES SPEECH Members of Churchill's party told reporters privately during the train trip westward, however, that Churchill had discussed his. speech in advance with the Earl of Halifax, retiring British ambassador. They added that it was unlikely the former prime minister would speak out on so important a subject if lie thought it might prove an irritant to British Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin. They said too that Mr. Truman was given an opportunity to look over the text last night. Churchill, leader of the Attlee government's loyal opposition, asserted that the United States already has a permanent defense agreement with Canada and added that "this principle" should be "extended to all the British commonwealths with full reciprocity." He advocated "continuance of the intimate relationships between our military advisers, leading to common study of potential dangers, sim- jilarity of weapons and manuals of instruction, and interchange of officers and cadets at college" and "joint use of all naval and air bases See CHURCHILL, Page 8 VOL. 43, No. 242.

AP Leased Wire Price 5 Cents Legion Given Permission for Memorial Park Heartily endorsing the future development of Recreation park, a 1BO- acre site located one mile east of the city, the city commission today set aside 61.7 acres for use by the American Legion as a Memorial park. E. J. Dunigan, commander of the Kerluy-Croxsman post of the Legion. n.?kcd for nnd was granted permission for the Legion to begin Immediately on improvement of the site. John Osborne, attorney for the Legion and City Attorney R. F. Gordon submitted an ordinance to the commission to that effect and it wan passed unanimously. At the present time, the Top o' Texas Rodeo association has the lease on the park but Dunigun told the commission that the rodeo association was agreeable to the Legion developing the west section of the park, where the city lake is located. Mayor Parris C. Oden told Duni- gnn that the Legion had the city's whole-hearted support in the program of improvement at the park, as the site had long been a "white elephant" to the city. Mayor Odsn also stated that, if it were possibls, certain funds received from revenue at the park might be diverted directly back to improvement of the facilities. When the rodeo association obtained the lease on the park, the heads of that organization agreed to divert as much of the pro:eed3 as possible back into park improvements. Further business at the city commission meeting included opinions expressed by two local businessmen on the proposed new-gas franchise. The franchise was "scheduled to be read today for the second time. After it is read a third time and published it will become effective.-. The Texas Gas and Power corporation is applying for the new 20- year gas franchise and indications are that it will bo accepted by both the city and the company after the formalities arc completed.

Yesterday a; man inquiring about getting his old license number, 8888, was told the numbers would probably go that high and that it would be reserved for him if thfey did. If persons leave the proper identification paper and the money for the license it isn't much trouble to handle the requests. Yesterday about 900 of the 1000 automobile licenses which have been issued were given out. Persons were standing three-four deep in the office. License numbers were running around 4903 Numbers^this year started at 3900. It is estimated that about 5000 automobile licenses will be secured by Gray county residents by the deadline, April 1, and about 1500 Others will be issued after that time during the ensuing year.

The government was represented in conferences, in Detroit and in Washington, aimed to end the disputes. In Detroit, negotiators were to meet as latest action by the CIO united auto workers might bring a possible break in the 105 day old General Motors work stoppage. The government intervened in the threatened telephone tieup over a •wage dispute, but union leaders went ahead with plans for some 250,000 members of the national federation of telephone workers to leave their jobs at 6 a. m. (EST) Thursday. The CIO united auto workers' latest move was acceptance of a suggestion by General Motors that the 175,000 strikers take part in a secret ballot on the question of ending the walkout—but the union included a provision. The union said it would agree to the GM proposal that rank and file workers vote whether they wish to return to their jobs under the company's latest 18. 1/2 cent hourly •wage increase oi'fpv. provided the ballot also included the alternative of submitting issues to a President- appointed arbitrator.

The G. O. P. -deep south coalition yesterday defeated 161 to 92 what President Truman called the "heart" of his homesrfov-veterans program —a provision' calling for $600',000,03ff in federal subsidies to boost output of scarce .building materials without hiking pri-es. The same team last week denied the other major administration request — for authority to put ceiling;; on all existing dwellings. The republican bill would deny the government power to clamp price ceilings on new houses as well. This is the one big issue to be settled before the house tosses the housing program over to the senate. The housing legislation, after the administration suffered one defeat after another, still embodied these provisions as it came up for fina disposition: 1. Priorities for veterans on building materials to construct homes in rural areas as well as cities. 2. Price ceilings for new homes. 3. Authority for the housing administrator to issue directives to other government agencies, including OPA, on matters related to housing. Under this provision, housing administrator Wilson W. Wyatt could tell OPA what price ceilings to put on building materials. There appeared to be general agreement to write into whatever bill LONDON.

A state department official reported today that Franco, ap- Darently anticipating the Anglo-American-French declare lion against his government, set forth his stand in -a note received here 24 hours before fhe three-power statement was issued yesterday. VIGOROUS ASSERTIONS The note, containing assertions that Spain could run its own affairs without, outside intervention, was delivered nt the state department by Juan Francisco de Carde- nns. Spanish ambassador. The state .department official. who asked not to be identified, said he did not know whether similar notes had been delivered simultaneously in Paris or in London. American officials pinned their hopes today for overthrowing Spain's Franco government almost entirely on the possibility that the Spanisil army might force the generalissimo to yield to a caretaker regime.

Mr. Hoover's acceptance was announced by Secretary of Agriculture Anderson following a breakfast discussion of the food situation, attended by the former chief executive., who carried out foreign relief programs in Europe after World War I. Anderson said Mr. Hoover will leave probably next week. It will be his objective to learn at first hand the actual needs of war- torn areas. The former president will take several persons with him, including Dr. F. F. Fitzgerald, food allocations officer of the agriculture department. The others are to be named by Hoover later. Anderson said it was probable that Hoover would go to France first. The secretary of agriculture said the government, in sending Hoover abroad, sought to ascertain whether (here is any "water" in statements of food relief requirements submitted by the various countries asking U. S. aid. The Hoover party plans to fly to Europe. Hoover's assignment followed last Friday's White House food confer- once at which Mr. Truman called in Hoover and other authorities on the subject to devise ways of getting 1 Americans to share their food with ihe less fortunate peoples of the world. Secretary Anderson nounced that advisory also an- committees of the food processing industries, food distributors, wholesalers and retailers, as well as hotels and restaurants will meet with him and other food officials Thursday on ways of saving foods. Anderson said the government io))es to announce late this week or early next a specific pattern of food •consumption for individuals, fam}- ies, hotels and other public eating places.
