A MICHIGAN WIFE, SEEKING DIVORCE, SAID SHE ALWAYS COULD TELL BY MIS EYES WHEN HER HUSBAND WAS out ALL NIGHT. IT WAS IN THE BAGI Foreign Ministers Meet to Discuss 'Marshall Plan' No Indication of Red Attitude Seen PARIS—/P—Foreign ministers of Russia, Great Britain and France started consideration today of an European economic recovery program linked with American aid. There was no official indication of the Russian attitude toward the "Marshall plan" but the British and French •have welcomed the proposal of U. S. Secretary of State Marshall. Authoritiative U, S. and British sources in London said the United States and Britain had reached the "broad conclusion" that the aid program should be operated outside the United Nations framework. A French cabinet spokesman said last week, however, that the projected European economic commission would work "within" the framework of the United Nation commission of Europe established earlier.... at Geneva, with the U.N. Commision a planning board and the new commission an operational n *1 ft -Pit t^.n4-«n*~. n 't.-._. *__!•_ and functional organiaztion. Commission to Advertise for Bids on Paving The''City Commission yesterday afternoon in special session, authorized City Manager Steve Matthews to advertise for bids on 11 blocks of street paving after one additional block was brought into the project. Tlie bids nre to be opened July 14. The decir,'on to advertise for bids came after City Engineer Dick Pepin said he had estimated the city could do the job for approximately $28,145, or $3.25 per foot for each property owner. Pepin added that this was his estimate, but did not know what a contractor would ask for the job. Pepin also asked for alternate bids on the paving base for both ca- liche or soil cement adding that the latter is more expensive, but is tha more durable. Pepin also estimated that it would take the city until July 14 at least to gather enough material, equipment and men together to go into the paving business itself. George Casey, assistant city sec. rotary, told the Commission he had contacted several property owners in the 500 block of N. Nelson and they had finally agreed to go along on the project. The addition of this block into the project brought the number from 10 to 11 blocks yesterday afternoon. ' The Commission convened shortly after 2 p.m. and adjourned about an hour later, when it decided tentatively to let thjgpavlng to a contractor for this project. Pepin brougftt-out a list of equipment needed for the city to go into its own paving. Some of the equipment is on hand and other would have to be ordered or advertised for in bids. It was disclosed the city now needs three dump trucks, but must place them on order before they can be assure^ of delivery. According to (ordinance this is next to impossible as all vehicles have to be let for bids before an order can be made Instead of purchasing the scarce trucks when they are available through local dealers. No estimate can be n'| de on, delivery dates when 'the trucks are advertised for, Matthews told the Commission. No do. clslon on the equipment was reached by the Commission at yesterday afternoon's meeting.

M. Molotov of Russia, Ernest Bevin of Britain and Georges Bidault of France. They met privately at 4:15 p. m. (9:15 a. m. CST). Bevin arrived just before Molotov. Bevin was accompanied by Alfred Duff Cooper, British ambassador to Paris; Edmund Hall-Patch, economic advisor to the foreign office; and a private secretary. Russian Ambassador. Alexander Bogomolov and two carloads of advisers arrived with Molotov. There was no indication how long the conference would last, but observers predicted it would be over in four days or a week if it was not sidetracked into a debate of .political and ideological differences. Today's program called.for Bidault to outline briefly the French view 'that whatever is done toward economic operation must be done quickly. Both the French and British have emphasized the need for concentrating on a purely technical and economic plan concerned with the continent's needs for coal, transport, food and steel. Though only a preliminary to a more representative meeting of European states, the conference was expected to bring a decision on whether Russia will cooperate. Early Indications pointed to the likelihood the Soviet response would be reserved until a lot of questions have been answered. Russia is understood to feel that any aid-to-Europe project should be conducted through existing United Nati,ons machinery. 3 Youths Injured As Car Overturns Threo youths last night were given medical treatment at the Worley. Hospital following the rolling ever of the oar in which they were riding about three miles south of Pampa on the Clarendon highway. Etate Highway Patrolmen said that Johnny Dale White, 22, of Campbell, Route 1, was driving the 1S35 Ford coach when the accident occurred. The youths were taken to Worley Hospital, and then after treatment were taken home in a Clegg ambulance. Others injured besides White were: James Herman White, his brother, and W. H. Bailey, of Lo Noeak. The patrolmen said the accident occurred after White had attempted to pass another car and then dropped back losing control of the machine.

TEXAS, FRIDAY, JUNE 27, 1947 Price 5 Cents AP Leased Wire Nation Going Out of Coal Business -K * * * -K CIO Is Drafting Program Relative To Labor Law WASHINGTON— (ff>)— Leaders of 6-000.000 CIO members, cautioned by President Truman alone: with all labor and management to live up to the new Taft-Hartley law, gathered today lo draft a program of contest or compliance. CIO president Philip Murray convened his 51-membcr executive board to hear an up-to-the-minute size-up of the new statute as compiled by the labor organization's entire legal staff. Attorneys for cacl of the 49 CIO unions met here yesterday with general counsel Lee Pressman. Both the AFL and the CIO have rejected the idea of general protest strikes, although AFL presiden William Green told reporters yesterday that unions throughout the nation were urging him to call one to last "until the act is repealed." Instead. Green called a meeting here July 9 of the heads of the APL's 105 unions, to go over the law am determine a program of policy—the same type of session fixed for'todaj by Murray and the CIO. President Truman made his appea for compliance by employers anc unions in a formal statement at his news conference late yesterday. He called upon both labor and management "to exercise patience and mod erc.tion in accommodating themselves to the changes made necessary by the act," "In accordance with the constitutional processes of our government,' he said, "we just all respect its provisions." Mr. Truman formally pledged tha SEE PAGE EIGHT CIO MEETING Lions Present Park to City During Banquet Evidence of six years-work by the Pampa Lions Club was illustrated last night, in the Lions Club Parl deed that was formally presented to Mayor C. A. Huff by Lion Roy A Webb, at the officers installatior banquet. After planning, buying and constructing the park, on the south side of the city, where it is believed to be of benefit to more children, the Lions gave it over to the city foi general maintenance. It was explained that Lion work at the park was by no means finished. That the planting of grass and the construction of severa other recreational facilities will b added from time to time. Installation ceremonies for Clarence Kennedy, recently elected president, and other new officer: were conducted by Lion H. H. Smith of Panhandle. Other officers tha were installed include: Frank L Stallings, re-elected secretary-trea surer, Morrie Enloc. lion tamer; H P. Dozier, tail twister; and the Rev Douglas E.

Retiring president Jimmy McCune expressed his appreciation to members of the club for their cooperatior during his administration. Ralph Randle, past governor of Lipn District 2-T, Panhandle, was> the principal speaker of the evening. A special award .of wrist watcl was made to Dr. H. L.

BJW»QE-S W pHen fey Wwr China Will Receive Surplus Ammunition WASHINGTON—</P)—The United States has agreed lo turn over to China 130,000,000 rounds of surplus rifle ammunition for weapons of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek's troops. State Department officials also told reporters that the Nanking government has been authorized to purchase other military supplies from American private manufacturers. On the question of economic aid for the hard-pressed Nationalist government, the Export-Import Bank announced it will consider lending money to China for specific projects. William C. Martin, bank chairman, said an earmark of $500.000,000 in funds for China will be allowed .to expire June 30. However, the new promise ol aid for specific projects leaves tlie door open for Chinese borrowing, either by government agencies or private enterprises. Inability of China to settle its internal troubles and the resulting civil var reported largely responsible for its failure to nail down any loans out of the funds which were earmarked 14 months ago. The rifle ammunition the United States proposes to turn over is a special 7.92 centimpter size made to fit the German-design so-called "generalissimo" rifle used by the Nanking armies. The ammunition was manufactured for China under lend-lease arrangement during the Some was shipped as far as India but only a small quantity got over the Himalayan "hump" before VJ-Day. Well posted officials said that coincidentally with the Communists' drive In Manchuria and North China, Winking representatives have been making urgent overtures for weapons, military anununition and equipment—from other botli American Army and Navy surplus stocks and from commercial manufacturers. If the pleas are heeded diplomatic authorities expect the answer to be made known in an early China aid policy decision by President Truman and Secretar of State Marshall. Dr. S. C. Wang, chief of the Chinese supply mission in the United States, has "declined comment, but' military experts say that ammunition is the most urgent current need of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek's forces. At a time when Nanking officials have been charging—without confirmation—that Russia has supplied the Communists with ample arms, the ammunition supplies of Nationalist troops have been sevcrly rationed. Small arms and some artillery ammunition is obtainable on short .notice from American commercia arms plants, as are aircraft of many types. But officials said quick delivery on such weapons as machine guns, rifles and artillery could be had only from %yartime Army and Navy stocks which might be declared surplus. While the United States since V-. Day has supplied limited quantities of arms to friendly countries ii iEurope, Latin America and elsewhere, China has received none since Marshall halted all deliveries last year before he abandoned his attempt to close the breach between the Nationalist government and the Communists. There has been no formal embargo however, and no statutory block stands in the way of resuming shipmants if the National munitions control board receives an official administration green light to grant export permits. * * * 'World on Wheels' Demands Good Roods, Boosts Building AUSTIN—w>)—Demands of a "world on wheels" for farm roads, and expensive multi-lane highways are predicted to bring "the most momentous years of history" to the road building industry. E. J. Potts, president of the Texa Good Roads Association, forecasts the good years he predicts coming "within the next two or three years." Two major problems face road planners and builders with the world "going on wheels to a greater degree than ever before." he said. "1. Traffic must be- handled expeditiously in congested areas by means of multi-lane highways that are expensive to build and maintain. "2. Facilities must be provided so that fanners can take their children to school and their produce to market; so that people in rural areas can comfortably remain there in the interest of continued agricultural productivity." Potts suggested Tom P. Bplen of Abilene as president of the Good Roads Association May 23.

Unable io Reach Decision On Chinese Loan By DEWITT MACKENZIE AP Foreign Afalrs Analyst When I was in China four and a half years ago this column recorded that impartial observers generally believed the terrible civil war bet- twccn the Com. munists and Gcn- nrallssimo Chiang Kai-shek's N a - tionalist govern-;• nient must run' its bloody course \ —-until one side or tho other was \ knocked out. It seemed clear that the divergence between communism and any other ism—political, economic or 'EWITT MACKEW religious—was too great to be bridged by negotiation. It was the old story that oil and water don't mix. That was during- the world war The United States then was giving the Chinese government material help in the struggle against Japan. Later General George Marshall, aid ed by other American officials, spent long months trying ineffectually to compose tho internal differences which rapidly were wrecking the •world's most populous nation—one of the Big Five. Since then things have raced madly from bad to worse. And now, having explored every visible avenue in an effort to ait».pnr friend, Washington today is facing a dilemma. Trying to move either side in the civil war with advice or argument is like hollering down an empty rain-barrel. Loans of money are >snow on a hot stove. What more can America do to save a nation which not only is her friend but whose welfare is vital to world peace and prosperity? Bestowal of further credits and loans apparently would be the only feasible offering which could be made. But would additional money •achieve the desired ends at this juncture? The position in China is truly Catastrophic. Fierce fighting continues between great Communist and Nationalist armies in Manchuria, and the government is hanging on by its teeth to this richest section of the empire. Tlie conflict is flaming across Northern China as well. Far south in Hong Kong Marshal Li ChLshen, one time chief of staff for Chiang Kai-shek, says he favors a "democratic" secession of South China, and he asserts that this movement already is in prog- SEE PAGE 8 CHINESE LOANS Teacher of Farming Classes Approved Appointment of O.

Dukes is a graduate of West Texas State College, in Canyon. Classes are being held twice weekly, with demonstrations on Saturday. Truman Appeals For Compliance With Measure PITTSBURGH— IfP)— With nearly two-thirds of the nation's miners on strike anil a fuel short- ape pinching; steel mills and rail- roa'ds. the government prepared to an exit from the soft coal business at midnight, tonight. Actually the U. S. flag at the mines, symbols of government operation, will not be lowered until Monday noon, but tonight the Miners begin a 10-day vacation with pay granted in their contract with the naval coal mines administration. The government took over the mU/js during another strike—on May 21. 194(5, after little or no coal had been dug for 59 days. The present walkout dated only from last Monday when Congress overrode President Truman's veto of the Taft-Hartley labor bill. Within a few hours several thousand miners had left the pits; today the number idle, mainly in protest against the new law, had grown to more than a quarter of a million scattered over 22 states. The return of the nation's 2.500 mines in 22 states will leave still unsolved the problem of what will happen next July 8 when the miners' vacation ends. No wage contract between the mine owners and the AFL-United Mine Workers has been signed; the miners have always maintained "no contract, no work. 1 ' Meanwhile, as dwindling stockpiles of coal forced layoffs bf steel workers and as coal-carrying railroads began furloughlng their train crews. Preident Truman urged labor and management to comply with the provisions of the much-disputed Taft- Hartley act. Pledging himself to administer the new law as fairly and efficiently as possiple. the President declared: "Insofar as labor and management are concerned tiierc is a vital responsibility upon them to comply with the law in a spirit of tolerance and SEE PAGE 8 TRUMAN Maximum Penalty Given Eisler on Contempt Charge WASHINGTON— ( f p\ — Gerhart Eisler, Communist, today drew the maximum federal court penalty of ia year in prison and $1,000 fine for contempt of Congress. Federal District Court Justice Alexander Holtzoff passed the sentence after denying a motion for a i:tw trial and a dramatic personal plea for mercy from Eisler, who has been described in Congress as the "No. 1 Soviet Commissar" in this •country. Eisler xva.s convicted June 10 of contempt in refusing to take an oath for testimony before the House Committee on unAmerican Activities last February 6. The sentence followed by a day of conviction of another Communist, Eugene Dennis, on a similar charge. Lawyers for both indicated they would carry to the Supreme Court a, challenge of the constitutionality of the House Committee. Pending an appeal, Eisler was released on $20,000 bail. He also is un- dei indictment on a charge of fraud in obtaining- a passport. Trial on that indictment is scheduled to begin July 7. In his plea for leniency, Eisler said he was a European anti-Fascist political refugee. He loudly protested that he, was "a victim of a witch- hunting hysteria in this country, Instigated and encouraged by the un- American Activities Committee." Justice Holtzoff said he was imposing the maximum sentence be- cuse Eisler during the trial "showed an attitude of defiance and no disposition to cooperate with the Congressional Committee." "It is apparent that this defendant does not i-espect the institutions of this country," the Court declared MOLOTOV ARRIVES IN PARIS—French Foreign Minister Georges Bldault, left, greets Soviet Foreign Minister Viachcslav Molotov as the latter arrived in Paris to attend the three-power conference on the Marshall plan for aid to Europe. Alexander BoRomolov, Russian ambassador to France, is in the center. The ministers open their meeting: today. Combines Needed in Gray County Harvest There is an immediate need for at least 150 combines and 150 flat bed trucks to be used in the harvesting of the largest wheat crop in the history of Gray County, announced Ralph Thomas, Gray County agent, this morning. The total wheat acreage in Gray County is in excess of 125,000 acres and at an average of 40 bushels per acre there is an expected harvest of 5,000,0000 bushels. However, Thomas stated, that if the combines are not obtained immediately for the cutting of the wheat there is great danger of losing a large percentage of the crop, due to it Military Status Of Aggieland Will Not Be Changed COLLEGE STATION — W>) —The Board of Directors of Texas A. and M. College yesterday announced it '•contemplates no changes in the military staus" of the school. The announcement, in effect, was Olin E. Teague of Bryan in Washington that the Board intended to change A. and M. from a military icollego to a civilian-nasis ROTO becoming over-ripe. "In my office, we have a list of names of farmcis who need at a minimum, 65 combines, for wheat that is now ready to be cut," Thomas reported. He stated, that this does not include tho needs listed with the two sub-stations located at Laketon and at the junction of Highways 18 and 66. Five local grain elevators arc making arratigcrncnts to take care of the Lumper crop. However, it is expected that the local elevators will be overflowing by the end of the first week of cuttin?. In an effort, to meet the expected overflow, through the efforts of the local Chamber Qf'Commerce and the County Agents office, storage space has been obtained at the Pampa Army Air Field from the War Assets Administration. Rocket Derails Near Amarillo AMARILLO—(/F 1 ;—Service was expected to be resumed over the Rocl: Island lines in tins area today after interruption caused by derailment of the Deluxe Rocket passenger train 18 miles east of here yesterday in which three persons were injured. Those hurt were Clemehtc Solis, Amarillo, Rt. 2, .shaken up and bruised; Arthur Shwlee, Little Rock, Ark., second degree burns; and Grazerson Reames. Little Rock, minor injuries. Sherlee and Reames were dining car porters. A ''sun kink" wasp robably the cause of derailment. One Rock Island official said. He exlained that a sun kink is a twist in the rails caused by heat. Tracks were twisted for 550 feet. However, it was estimated that the tracks would be cleared by morning. Julian Prade, of Dallas, flew over Ithe train, which was en route to Amarillo from Memphis, Tenn., shortly after the derailment. He said the car.s "area't turned over- it looks like they just scooted off the rails." Jester Lets Five of Last Seven Bills Die; Salary Hike for County Employes Included . AUSTIN—W)—Gov. Beauford H. Jester last night formally wound up the acts of the 50th Legislature, chopping down five of the last seven bills that remained on his desk for action before the midnight deadline on his power to veto. The measures killed were those which would have: 1. Prohibited fraternities, sororities and secret secieties in public High Schools and Junior Highs. 2. Provided mandatory salary raises of 15 percent for officials of U counties and pel-missive salary raises in the same percentage for those of 73 counties. 3. Authorized creation of public hospital districts by county commissioners courts and the levying of a tax to pay for building and maintaining such hospitals. 4. Transferred control of the state school for the deaf at Austin from the board of control that ad- jninisters all eleemosynary institutions, to a separate board. &. Set up mechanics for the abolition of the Lamar Junior College district and tor transfer of the Junior College property to the Senior College which the Legislature finally failed to establish. Jester signed the much*contested bill wjjjfih esfcends for one and p«e, yews tax vejjgsstaas J,o sions when the state failed to levy a general fund ad valorem tax in 1846. He also signed «• bill creating Ellis County Road District Number 13a. His actions—finally wound up five hours before the deadline—brought ito 471 the unofficial total of bills finally enacted by the 50th Legislature. Tlie total number of measures introduced w^s 1,33$. Jester vetoed 12 all told.

Local officials—backed by popular opinion—can take steps at tiny time they desire to correct the evils of which the proponents of this bill complain." Jester said he vetoed the salary raise bill because he objected to the mandatory phase applying to n counties. The measure would have permitted salary increases in counties in the 20,000 to less than 60,000 bracket, and would have made such raises mandatory in counties of from 60,000 to 190,000 population. In his veto proclamation on the hospital district bill, the Governor commented that the measure was introduced as a. local bill, but it, would have actually affected 68 counties in 35 of the state's 3r senatorial districts. «'Th.e total amount 9! bfflftds aw- th,ori?ed is 37 percent oJ the tot$l Indebtedness of aU thji joeal subdivisions of •" - ' "JL 'it J school. The Board, at the conclusion, ofl its meeting hero, also announced the dismissal of Dr. P. B. Clark, head of A. cmd M. Economics Department, who was a chief figure in the recent strife at A.' and M. Clark's dismissal was disclosed .after he had appeared before the Board for approximately 20 minutes to explain his conduct in charging the college administration with intimidation of facu-lty members. A few months ago Clark appeared before a state legislative committee •investigating the A. and M. situation. Afterwards the majority of the committee issued a report in which it censured Clark on the grounds that ho did not properly substantiate his charges. The Board yesterday released a memorandum which said, "in view .of the action of Dv. P. B. Clark in giving- widespread publicity to charges against the administration of tho collegen which he later admitted he could not substantiate, the Board of Directors, after hearing Dr. Clark, deems it necessary to terminate his connection with the college immediately." Clark, who had been associated with the college 31 years, had no statement to make to reporters.
