A CAL1POHH1A .HOSPITAL PLANS TO LET FATHERS HEAR DADY'S FIRST CRY VIA A MICROPHONE IN THE DELIVERY ROOM. A WAIL OF AN IDEA. ALLIES ARMED FORCES CROW With the **e«ption of France, the peoce- timc armed forces of rhe major Allies will be bigger than' their prewar ones. No Official Russian figures are available, but informed sources say five million men is a minimum estimate, the U. S. postwar military establishment will be about six times its prewar strength and will cost approximately $6,000,000.000 this yeor. Speech Arouses Big Three Relations; Truman Appeals for Let's Put Red Cross Drive Over by Sunday Over the top by Sunday! That's the goal of the Red Cross drive in the Pampa chapter, Joe Fischer, chairman, said today. But only about half of the quota of $14,040 has been re- Dorted collected to date. About $7,500 is in. Little money lins been reported by either the industrial or the rural workers, and thoir collections are expected to bring the amount up a Texas Oilmen Say Ceiling Increase Is Not Sufficient By The Associated Press Texas oilmen said today that the 10-cents-per-barrel increase in producers' ceilings for crude oil granted by the OPA did not go far enough und some, demanded that OPA controls be removed entirely. "It is a good start but of course it does not go far enpugh," said Beauford Jester, member of the Texas-Railroad commission. "It does demonstrate that the OP)^ is beginning to listen to reason. It is only an.approach to simple justice." Charles F. Roeser, Texas independent oil operator and chairman of the crude oil industry advisory committee to the OPA, said that "in view of the study of oil exploration and development costs submitted by the advisory committee to the OPA the increase is nothing short of ridiculous. It is so cut of line.with the advance in the. cost of finding and producing oil that the advance Js ; insignificant. ; -. , •' "Our only hope" now appears to be •to battle to take the power to fix the price of crude oil out of the- hands of the OPA." J. P. Cbleman, president of the North Texas Oil and Gas association and also a member of the advisory committee, agreed that OPA control over the price .of crude oil should be removed and; added that the price increase "is not satisfactory to the independent oil producers'." Calling for the removal of OPA controls over oil and cotton, H. P. Nichols, executive vice president of the East Texas Oil and Gas association, termed the increase "just a bait." In Shreveport, La., B. A. Hardey, president of the Independent Petroleum Association of America, said the association will continue to press for abandonment of price controls over crude oil and>"all other commodities which are being pro- good deal. However, Fischer said, there, is still some work to be done. Also, he reminded the business district workers to report the names of those firms which the contribution was 100 percent. The latest to be reported is the Pampa Office Supply, but the chairman said he was certain that there were others, which had not been reported. C. W. Burgess, chairman of the drive at Lefors, could not be reached for a report today, but Fischer said he was certain that the drive was moving on schedule in that 'jommunity. The quota for Lefors is $700. Fischer, who hopes to report over the top in the Sunday edition of the Pampa Daily News, said if there are those who wish to.make contributions to the Red Cross but have not been contacted, they can'mail or take in person their contribution to the Red Cross office, located at the city hall. duced in excess of consumer demand." He said the 10 cents per barrel crude oil price increase announced by the OPA was "totally inadequate." - «^- - • i Ickes' Memoranda locked in Bank' , WASHINGTON, March 6,— Iff)— Harold L.

Those 'Greedy For Gold' Are Rapped by HST COLUMBUS, O., March 6— (AP)—President Truman today laid at the door of "certain interests," which he described as "greedy- for gold," the responsibility for much of the opposition to his domestic legislative program. Appealing directly for church support of measures which have bogged down in congress, the President told a special session of the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America: HIGH MORAL CODE "A truly religious fervor among our people would go a long way toward obtaining a national health program, a national housing program, a national education program, and an extended and improved social security program." Speaking after a parade through flag-draped, crowd-lined high street from his special train to the Deshler-Wallick hotel, the President called for "a rising standard" of home life. He urged religious support, nlso for the development of atomic energy under "a high moral code" to res- Sec TRUMAN SPEECH, Page 2 *Tm used to being given more or ' " re^ pf a bum's rush," said Ickes, re •signed recently from the cabinet in a JiUff.

He did not elaborate. He also said China is keeping the United-States inlonned on-the-cowae- of Sino-Soviet negotiations. Liu skipped some queries with a laconic "ho comment" at a press conference. Answers he did give showed that: Russia had not informed China of the movements and size of Soviet forces at Port Arthur—made a joint Sino-Russian naval base under the Sino-Soviet treaty of last Aug. H. Reports received by the Chinese government confirmed that Soviet authorities removed machinery from industrial plants in Manchuria. Inability of the Chinese government to restore Chinese sovereignty, was due in general to the failure of Russian forces to withdraw from that vast, territory, particularly from Changchun, the capital, and Mukden. Inability of the Chinese to assume control of civil administration of Dairen, as provided in the Sino-Soviet treaty, was connected with "the See MANCHURIA, Page 2 a I urch VOL. 43, No. 243. (8 Pages) PAMPA, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 1946. AP Leased Wire Price 5 Cents! Progress Made Toward Prevention of Telephone Halt as Rail Strike Is Set (By The Associated Press) Heads or two big operating brotherhoods today set 6 a. m. Monday as the deadline for a progressive strike which could paralyse the nation's railroad systems. STRIKE INSTRUCTIONS The announcement was made at a press conference called in Cleveland by A. F. Whitney of the trainmen's brotherhood and Alvanley Johnston of the brotherhood of locomotive engineers. The announcement officially confirmed, reports from local officers of the brotherhoods in many cities across the country that they already had received instructions for the walkout. EMERGENCY BOARD Whether the strike will go off i\s scheduled, however, was not clear immediately. Under the railway labor act, President Tnmian can appoint an emergency board to study the dispute and submit recommendations. Such procedure is presumed to forstall any strike from 30 to 60 days. At the same time, the railroad management denounced the strike call as a "senseless and flagrant disregard" of the railway labor act and Special federal Mediator James P. Dewey was summoned from Detroit to Washington to give Secretary of Labor Schwellenbach a report on the General Motors strike. 106-DAY OLD STRIKE A labor department spokesman in Washington said Dewey was called in "view of the impasse" in De- See U.

There will be no charge for admission to tonight's program and the public is urged to attend the last of the series of four lectures Threatened Phone Strike Would Be First in History H.v JAMES IIAULOW WASHINGTON. March 6.—(.T>)— Tomorrow's threatened telephone strike would be the first national telephone tie-up in history. This is the ABC of it: The National Federation of Telephone Workers (NFTWi claims 250.000 members, such as telephone operators, repairmen, clerical workers, installers, linemen. That national federation is made of 51 local unions. Only 17 would go on strike directly. The other 34 would support them by refusing to cross picket lines thrown up by the striking 17. But the federation's 250.000 members are not all the telephone workers in this country. There are others who belong to unions not connected at all with the national federation's 51 local unions. Whether those independents would support the strikinlg unions remains to be seen. But this is what the national federation says would happen, once the strike started: All long-distance telephone operators in the 48 states would cease; most nondial local telephone service would be discontinued; operation of dial phones would depend on how well they could be kept in repair; some teletypejsystems wouW be af- 'fecleci,' "a'ricl 6verseolTfelepIioire" wotiTd end. The union says emergency colls could be handled by supervisors who are not members of the federation and therefore would be on the job. The federation's main negotiations for increased wages have been conducted with about a score of companies which are of the Bell Telephone system. The parent company is the American Telephone and Telegraph company. (The federation has contracts with some independent companies See TELEPHONE STRIKE, Paffc 2 COP TO TOKYO Martin E.

Ifr Meeting of PAY Slated Tonight menders of th,e OTT Rainey Severs Last Tie With TU AUSTIN, March 6—(£>)—Homer P. Rainey, former president of the University tif Texas, had the decks clear for political action .today. What the action would be was not announced, but every indication wns that Rainey would become a candidate for governor. Yesterday Rainey severed his last tie with the university by resigning as professor of education administration. This was a position he held in conjunction with the presidency. When dismissed as head of the school, he retained the professorship. University of Texas officials dirt not comment on the resignation which was anounced by Rainey. "Actually," Rainey said in a prepared statement, "I have not had professorship because the regents refused to assign me any duties 01 to pay me a salary, although undei their own rules I was entitled to such a position/' Rainey added that, as a native Texan, he was "deeply interested in the freedom of public educational instiutions at every level from control by politicians and powerfu speJial interest groups." The statement continued: "This interest of mine, therefore, transcends, although it is mirrored in the recent controversy at the university. My past and future efforts I hope, may serve to advance the cause of democratic education ia this state."

Senator George iD-Ga) told a reported an agreement to dovetail American and British armed forces, as proposed by Churchill in his Fulton, Mo., speech yesterday, would -weaken the United Nations," and •'would be a body blow to the UNO." Similarly, Senators Pepper (D- Fla), Kilgore (D-WVa) and Taylor iD-Ida) criticizing what they termed "Tory Clamor in Britain and the United States which is building up war." Said "the new British-American imperialism which Mr. Churchill proposes x x x simply makes the world situation intolerable." Senator Ball (R-Minn) commented that such an agreement "would obviously be interpreted by Russia as directed against her — and, with some justification, I think." Some on Capitol Hill, like Senators Taft (R-Ohio), Edwin C. Johnson (D-Colo) and Maybank (D- NC ) agreed generally with the former prime minister's estimate of Russian aims. Churchill described these as a desire for "indefinite expansion" of Soviet "power and doctrines." None, however, saw a military alliance as the answer to that problem. Moreover, Senator Brewster (R- Me) said he thought a military ar- rangeemnt between the United States and Great Britain would be likely to "precipitate the world against us." "We ought to orient American polr icy with Russia instead of tafeipig steps calculated to feed, if not JtQ justify Soviet suspecions," he said. "Ignoring Russia only arouses, her suspicions." As an example, the Maine s.enr ator said he thought Russia should have been a party to the American petroleum agreemnt should share in any decision m,a<Je about the future of Palestine.
