Volunteer Firemen ai Canadian Commended CANADIAN — (Special)—Canadian Volunteer Fire Department last week was commended by C. A. Studer for the fire protection they ?ave last week relative to a grass fire in a vacant lot adjoining Studer's Bakery and Market. An alarm, that fire threatened ;hat establishment, was turned In Wednesday afternoon and firemen answered immediately. Firemen had the situation well in hand, but instead of extlngul shing the fire t they stood by and let the fire hazard eliminate -itself by burning off the entire lot. Fire Chief Preston Hutton im mediately received a letter of commendation from Stirder and a check for $5 for the organization to "use as you see fit." Leaves From a Correspondent's Life Note Book Texas Seed Man Is Heard by Committee WASHINGTON—(#>)—A. E. Ruhmann, Waco. Texas, representing the southern seed industry, appeared before a senate appropriations subcommittee yesterday to recommend that a $150.000,000 cut by the House in soil conservation payments be restored. Ruhmann said it is "a breach of faith with our farmers to at this late date to refuse to provide the full $314.246,000 for soil building practices." PLAINS CREAMERY PRODUCTS YOU BECAUSE 1.

Aichison Phone 2204 By HAL BOYLE SAN FRANCISCO—(/P)—The ladies are in a dither. It isn't that prices arc going up—it's that skirts are coming down. The outbreak of a third world war would hardly stir such tumult in the feminine breast that, coine fal the style world has decreed longe dresses. It has turned all America into weeping wall for the ladies—bu some of the tears are crocodile. My wife has been in despair fo weeks. So has every other woman we've met. The girls don't give ; hangnail now about any other prob lem. I didn't know what the troubli was at first. After Frances had bcei moping for several days, I said: ' "I forgot just what I did, but I know it was all my fault, and I apologize. "You didn't do anything," she said, then added with wifely caution—"at least any more than usual.' "Then why are you going around looking like a moose at an Elks' convention?" "Haven't you heard the news?' That is the way wives always answer a question—by giving you one right back. "You mean the Balkans, taxes 01 the labor bill fuss?" I asked. She looked at me like I was a fugitive from, a kindergarten dunce cap. "I mean the news about; women's clothes," she said witheringly. "You call yourself a newspaperman! Don't you know practically every woman in this country is worrying about skirts being longer this fall?" "So what?" I parried. "They're always going up or down like a thea- ;er curtain. What if they get lower ,han the Pittsburgh Pirates? All you lave to do is unroll 'em a few inches and baste in a few hem—or whatever you do with hems." "Listen, Rover Boy," she said, "and I'll tell you a few facts about women's clothes." Well, it seems that dresses are basically diferent from men's pants. Men's pants are built in one general shape that is good no matter what altitude you wear the cuff. But women's dresses must be shaped in various ways, depending on how far the knees are to be above or below Bee-level. In recent years skirts have been pretty high—from 12 to 16 inches— and the dresses have been designed roughly to make the girls look like a geometry triangle standing on one leg. You know—padded shoulders, slim waists and halfback hips. But the changes soon coming will make milady—there's fancy fashion term fresh out of "Godey's Lady's Book"—look more like an under- slung salt shaker. "And they will reach to within jight-inches of the ground," Frances mourned. I said it was about time anyway 'or a Jot of knotty knees to go back In hiding. "You don't understand," said Frances. "Eighty-five percent of the women don't want to wear dresses ,hat long, no matter what their knees and legs look like. It just means they will have to throw away all their old dresses. They'll have to buy new slips, too, the old ones will be too short. There is no possible way to fix up your old things when the style changes that radically." "Why," I said, waking to the real peril, "that will mean practically a new wardrobe for every woman in the country." "Yes," said Frances, complacently. "Isn't it terrible?" Coal Miners (Continued From Patrn 1) Company, a livestock handling firm, was virtually inoperative bv a strike of 425 CIO United Packinghouse Workers. A company official said "resentment of Congress overriding the labor bill veto may have been a factor," but a CIO leader denied the charge and said the walkout involved wages, house and working conditions. In Kearney N. J., a threatened work stoppage by 4,000 CIO Marine and Shipbuilding Workers, was averted after an agreement had been reached to continue contract nego- iiations. In St. Louis Mayor Aloys P. Kauf- nan called a meeting of members of the boards of directors of the Public Service Company and the Union's Executive Board with a demand that some agreement be reached to end the city's two weeks old transportation strike. The walkout has cost St. I^ouis business an estimated $15,000 ) (K>0. fini Schemed al Memphis MEMPHIS, Texas—Plans are well tinder way to stage the first West Texas Cotton, Chemurgic and Cte- ramics Carnival here Oct. 3-4, James F. Smith, president Of the Memphis Chamber of Commerce, has an- noi'nced. Taking the theme of natural resources and their relation to industry, more than 47 West Texas coun- ,ies are being invited to participate n the two-day "Western Mardi Grns " Governor Jester will head a host of state officials to the commemoration events, and t. score of national and state officials of the Cotton and Chemurgic Cornells have pledged attendance. Exhibits will bo shown on nil jhnses of cotton and its products; he Chemurgic exhibits" alone will ax the display space capacity, according to officials. Every type of clay to be found in West Texas will be shown along with the products they make. Street shows, athletic events, street dances, in fact every form of amusement and entertainment will be presented free in an "around- the-clock" schedule. The parade to be covered by news reel cameramen, press photogar- phers and correspondents, will be staged Saturday morning, Oct. 4, and will afford an opportunity for each riding club, each community and individuals to march. Floats depicting the natural resources of the area will compete for cash awards. The West Texas Queen of Cotton will be crowned In Memphis to climax the attractions. She will be awarded an all-expcnse-paid trip to her choice of three glamorous cities and will also be feted by both state and national cotton agencies.

That's not being cynical but l-s merely employing horse-sense in these dangerous days when caution is necessary. It's recognizing facts instead of indulging in wishful thinking. There's a difrorenc.c though, between wishful thinking and hope. It is legitimate for us to hope that this reconstruction proposal may break the ice and so at long last permit of cooperation between the Russian bloc and the Western Allies. Such cooperation may not be probable at this time, but it is possible. Mind you, I don't believe Russia has completed her maneuvering for positions of advantage in Europe. The signs are that she intends to consolidate her hold on Hungary, to bring Austria within the Red fold, and to establish her influence over Germany. There is every indication, too, that Moscow hasn't the slightest intention of abandoning its campaign for communization of the world. However, it is possible the Soviet has extended its influence sufficiently so that it now would be willing to cooperate with the Western Allies—provided it is satisfied that the Allies have no designs against it. Transit Application Is Being Opposed WESLACO—(XT)—A Railroad Commission hearing here on an application of the Valley Transit Co., to start new motor bus routes from 2onna to Harlingen and from San Jenito to Brownsville, was expected to continue through today. The application is being opposed by the Union Bus Lines. (Continued Prom Pope 1) government can act quickly without outside advice. That is because (A) the government still is in control of the mines and (B) the Supreme Court left the way open for another Federal Injunction against Lewis and the union if a strike occurs while the government contract is in effect. That pact was made by Lewis and Secretary of the Interior Krug, ending the 59-day strike of the spring, 1946. Lewis anrt the operators have been at odds ever since. The government has been unable to give up the pits without danger of another strike. Rep. Howard Smith (D-Va.), one of the sponsors of the Smith-Connelly War Labor Disputes act which gave President Truman his power to seize the mines, introduced legislation yesterday to extend that authority beyond June 30. He said the Taft-Hartley bill could stop a coal strike only for a short time. But Speaker Mai-tin v(R-Mass.) told reporters he saw no signs the House would go along with Smith, And Rep. Landis (R-Ind.), second to the Labor Committee chairman, said that the group certainly would not be inclined to adopt plant seizure now and thereby "admit that our labor law is no good." However, Senator Taft (R-Ohio), co-sponsor of the new act, and several other proponents have acknowledged uncertainty whether the statute will be able to stave off a July coal shutdown. The House Labor Committee considered the advisability of continuing the seizure power while it was working on the new law. But the committee felt that seizure authority gave the government too much of an opening for interference with private business in peacetime. This week's mine shutdowns, coupled with the ten-day vacation in the coal fields,, will bite into bituminous stocks which the Bureau of Mines said represented only a 33-day supply on May 1, the last date for which figures were available. Marshall Plan (Continued From Pace 1) tions" of American dollar aid, Pravda declared: "If the authors of this plan lls- tended to the counsels o some excessively meddlesome American reactionaries and put forward for European countries conditions copied from the Greek-Turkish model, (then it stands to reason that the putting forward of these conditions would deliberately aim at eventual failure of the program planned. "Such aid would mean in fact in. terference In the inVnal affairs of European states ana an inringe- ment of their sovereignty, with which not a, single European nation which respects itself could agree."
