Sumners (D- Texas) a veteran of 34 years in congress, today called the federal government an instrumentality of favoritism, <' tyranny, oppres-. sion and corruption", as lie announced he would not 'seek' reelection. Sumners, TO-years old and long-time chairman of the house judiciary committee, said in a statement: "I have watched what my own generation, under administration of both parties, has been doing to the greatest system of democratic government ever evolved through tlieTJi-ocesses of the ages. "By ignoring principles and •the lessons of history, and accepting the theories of men and political expedience for our guidance, we have made vassals of our states and dependents of our people. "By concentration of governmental power and drafts upon the federal treasury, we have now a financially 'busted' great pilecl- up mass of governmental confusion beyond human comprehension, impossible >. of democratic control, extravagant, wasteful, inefficient, and by its nature the instrumentality of favoritism, tyranny, oppression, and corruption, and the destroyer of the self-reliance and s.elf-respcct and governmental capacity of the people, qualities without which no people can remain free." The Texan added that hope for a brighter; future lies in recognition by the people of a "common danger and a common duty" When he completes his congressional term, Sumners expects to speak before civil and patriotic organizations. He said he feels that in that manner he can better serve "a great people" than by acting as their representative in congress.

Pago 8 WASHINGTON, March 9—(AP)—A dark cloud of suspicion hung depressingly over international affairs today with a strong possibility that it will bring a new meeting soon of the Big Three to clear the air. Immediate interest was focused upon whether the Allies *vill attempt an over-all settlement of their controversies or continue to try for p,ecemeal solutions. In some diplomatic quarters here, the stand has been taken that the situation now is so serious that the present policy of tackling one problem at a time will serve only to aggravate the irritations. But the question of another British-Russian-American conference appeared to hinge immediately upon .who will lake the initiative for calling the conclave. I'OSSIBLE MEETING President Truman acknowledged 34 Persons Killed, Scores Injured in s Disaster BOLTON, England, March 9—M 1 ) —At least 33 persons were killed and scores injured in Britain's worst sports disaster today when two retaining barriers collapsed in a soccer stadium grandstand, tumbling hundreds of screaming spectators forward and piling bodies four deep. The barriers Jollapsed shortly after the start of the championship match attended by a record crowd of more than 70,000 persons. Thirty-three bodies were counted at Bolton morgues. Police estimated as many as 38 were killed. Two of the dead wure women. Chest and head injuries killed 32 persons outright. Most of the injured suffered similar hurts. The retaining barriers suddenly collapsed under the pressure of the lightly-packed crowd, and spectators toppled from grandstand tiers onto persons standing on lower tiers in, the "cheap-seat" side of the stadium. As the screaming victims fell they were smothered by waves of spectators tumbling through the broken barriers. Some were swept over a retaining wall onto the playing field. Despite the accident the soccer game between Bolton and Stoke City for the professional league cup was suspended for only 26 minutes while ambulances, police and fire vehicles and private cars removed the sasualtles. One spectator, Christopher Stone, .said the crowd suddenly surged forward. "I felt as if my ribs were being crushed." he said. "I lost consciousness, and when 1 came around T found myself being carried over piles of people apparently about four deep." yesterday that he was not discounting the possibility of such a meeting, but indicated strongly his feeling that it would be in Washington when and if it is held. A number of disputes current at this time would produce a long agenda lor such a meeting, among them: ITALIAN COLONIES 1. Italy—the difficulty centers chiefly around what should be done about the big pre-war Italian colonies. The United States and Great Britain took the position last fall that they should be placed under United Nations trusteeship for a limited period. Russia held out for a system of individual trusteeships, and maneuvered for control of Tri- politania. 2. Iran—Both Iran and the United States have lodged protests at Moscow against Russia's failure to withdraw Red army forces from Iran See BIG THREE MEET, Page 8 Point Score for Marines Drops WASHINGTON, March 9— (ff)— The Marine porps will drop the critical score for'all men from 42,.to 40 points on Monday.

Announcing details pf its future plans for prpgresslve reduction in joint scores, the corps said present intimates indicate that virtually all .personnel with combat service who are not regulars, will be mustered out by mid-summer.

Patton, jr., who died last Dec. 21 of traffic- accident injuries received in Germany, left an estate legally documented "in excess of $10,000," but unofficially valued at several hundred thousand dollars in real property and securities.

(Adv,) Senate Ready to Lay Down A-B-C Rules on Agencies WASHINGTON. March 9—W— The senate is about ready to lay down 1-2-3, A-B-C regulations on what government agencies can do and what, Mie people can do if they don't like it. The legislation, introduced by Sen. McCarran (D-Nov.) is designated |,o standardize rules mid regulations which apply to activities of government agencies -,nch as the office ol price administration, the civilian production administration and others. A somewhat similar measure was passed in 194,0 but vetoed by President Roosevelt. These are some of the regulations which would be placed upon government agencies: 1. Every agen:y shall publish in the federal register its rules and "no person shall in any manner be re- QUired to resort to organization or procedure not so published." 2. General notice of proposed rule-making shall be published together with the time, place and nature of the proceedings, and inter, ested persons shall have an opportunity to participate. 3. Except in cases where judicial review is prohibited by statutes, | "any person suffering legal wrong j because of any agency action, or adversely affected or aggrieved by such action within the meaning of any relevant statute, shall be entitled to judicial review thereof." 4. Qualified examiners—"as many as may be necessary"—shall be appointed to takee vldence, administer oaths, issue subpoenas and make decisions or recommendations. Wage-Price Policy Is Not So Simple Now By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON. March 9.— (/Pi— The government's wage-price policy is not so simple now. Between Aug. 17 and Feb. 14— two dates to remember—the policy roughly was this: You could raise wages without government okay, unless you wanted to use trat as a basis for raising prices, too. In that case you had to get the wage .stabilization board's approval on the day raise before asking OPA permission to raise prices. You c-:m still raise wages without government approval—if you don't use the raise as an excuse for seeking price relief. And if you raise wages between Aug. 17 and Feb. 14, automatically you can go direct to OPA for higher prices. You don't need the board's approval on your wage-raise. But this week the stabliziation board has outlined its new policy. Remember: Hereafter in the story any pay increased mentioned mean the boss wants to use them as a basis for seeking higher prices. No. 1 standard wages. The board considers wage below 55 cents an hour-substandard. You can raise them to 55 cents and go direct to OPA without seeking board approval on the raise. No. 4 wage "patterns" within an industry. Suppose your company is part of an industry—perhaps the furniture industry—and you want to raise wages. You ask board approval. The board will examine raise given within that industry between Aug. 17 and Feb. 14. The boa;;' will decide what it considers the raise "pattern" established within the industry. No. 3 arj:j. raises. Suppose a company, whicn is really not part of a big industry, wants to raise wages. If no industry pittcrn is to be found, the board can look for a .Sen WAGK-riJICK, Paso 8 Ice Floes Crush Lakeside Homes BAY CITY, Mich., March 9.— (.T 1 ) — Swept inshore by strong wind gusts, huge ic.e floes moved glacier- beach resorts before dawn today, crushing a community of cottages under a weighty impact. In the wake of ihe freak ice rampage were 46 destroyed summer homes on fashionable Killarney and Ricomo beaches. Eleven others were damaged. The gigantic floes were lifted onto the shore by wind and water and cracked into tumbling blocks that ground cottages off their foundations. Some piled as high as 40 feet. No injuries were reported. Police said one family only partially clad was removed from danger by neighbors.

Their leaders disclosed formation | in the house of an informal ten- jmember committee io recommend a, ccnrse of action. They said a similar organization is planned in the .•Dilute. Their immediate goal is to whittle down the powers of OFiA, but the; political and legislative potentialities are much broader. The committee has been instructed to draft a substitute for pending legislation continuing the agency beyond its June 30 expiration date. If the CPA drive succeeds, many of the group plan to extend their joint activities to other fields, and gradually assume the driver's scat on nearly all imoortant legislation. Actually GOP-southern democra-» tic coalition has been functipning for some years and frequently it has been the deciding factor on major issues. Many of the group teamed up in recent passage by the house of the strike comrol bill by Rep. Case (R- SD) and in diluting the administration's emergency housing measure. But in the past the coalition al* ways has been a loosely-knit group with no specific leaders or organi- sation. Largely the members just voted alike because they thought alike. Rep.
