A MICH1GAK RETURNED VET AND HIS WIPE SLEPT THREE NIGHTS IN THE BACK OP THEIR SPOUT COUPE BECAUSE OP THE HOUSING SHORTAGE. 'BE IT EVER SO RUMBLE.. / CONNALLY CALLS 39 Ways of Saving Food Suggested by HST's Famine Emergency Committee WASHINGTON, March 12—(AP)—The 39 ways suggested by President Truman's famine emergency committee by which Americans can save food for the hungry abroad include: For hotels, restaurants, dining cars, institutions, and other public eating places: .1 Discontinue during the emergency abroad the use of toast as 0 garniture with meat, poultry, egg and other entrees. 2. Discontinue the practice of placing baskets of rolls and bread on dining room tables. A single roll or slice of bread should be served with the entree, and later as requested. 3. Eliminate the custom of trimming toast and sandwich :rust. 4. Substitute open sandwiches for many closed or two-bread slice sandwiches in hotels. 5. Use potatoes in place of certain wheat and rice garnitures. 6.. Use single crust or open pies in place of two-crust pies whenever practicable. 7. Serve corn and buckwheat cakes in place of wheat cakes where possible. 8. Serve oatmeal bread, cakes and cookies as alternates for products made from wheat. 9. The size of rolls and the thickness of toast and bread should be reduced. Bread size could be reduced by not filling rhe pans as deeply as at present. 10. Substitute fruits and other desserts for pastries and cakes whenever practicable. 11. Limit the number of crackers in individual packages or served with soups, cheeses, and so forth. 12. Eliminate three-layer cakes. 13. Wherever possible induce customers to order only what is needed. When side dishes are included in a meal, the customer should request those side dishes and salads which he will eat. 14. Use boile dressing instead of oil dressings on salads wherever possible. 15. Use alternates for wheat cereal wherever possible. 16. Incourage re-use of food fats and'grease salvage. 17. Develop methods for saving and use of bread ends, many of which are wasted at the present time. See FOOD SAVING, Page 8 VOL. 43, No. 248.

Lewis moved back Into familiar territory on the nation's labor front today. With only minor developments in major labor disputes, the stage was set for the chief of the APL United Mine Workers to take over the spotlight as. he prepared to disclose to bituminous coal operators his wage and other demands. SOFT COAL WORKERS Keeping closely guarded the proposals to be offered the mine operators iri negotiations for a new contract lor some 400,000 soft coal workers, Lewis planned a last-minute session with the union's policy committee. The operators, although in the dark as to just what wage and other demands Lewis was ready to submit, were quite sure he would demand' a shorter work week, more pay to make up the loss in take-home earnings, the unionization of supervisory workers and a "participation" royalty on each ton of coal mined. PREPARED FOR DEMANDS The opeartors bnve prepared for the- anticipated demands and Lewis has laid the preliminary ground work for a strike of the soft coal workers on April 1, if necessary. In the other mcfjor labor negotiations, all appeared calm in the ranks of the CIO United Auto Workers in Detroit as conferences continued in the 112-day General Motors strike and parts of the union's contract' with the Ford Motor company faced possible changes. UAW-CIO President R. J. Thomas and Vice-President Walter P. Reuther did not comment on reports that the • "Reuther-for-presidenf drive appeared gaining headway among UAW-CIO locals, but botl declared they were "unanimous in all action now being taken to negotiate a strike settlement," As the 'GM negotiations continued With no report oil yesterday's -discussions, the union national Ford See LABBOR FRONT, Paffe 8 SALUTE TO YOU New Ruling Is Set By Commission AUSTIN, March 12.—(/P)—Because in some cases sand brought to the surface along with oil will cut through steel like a sharp file ; the railroad commission has ordered that there shall be no more production from two formations in any one well in the Bonnie' View field qf Refugio county. The commission has canceled dual completion permits in the field. A dually-completed oil well is one in which two reservoirs are tapped by the same well. The casing, or larger pipe, brings up oil from another formation. When it is found that the abrais- }ve action of sand produced along with the oil might cut through the tubing and permit fluids from the two .formations to mingle, there is ganger of a blowout. This danger was cited by the commission in canceling the previously-issued din gl completion permits for the field. The commission found there was danger to both the upper and lower $relft sands, and directed that op- Orator? could produce from either, 'tyrt not from both.

The present waiting period varies from 45 tc DO days. Russell Stephens, regional OPA rent executive, said that the new order "is in accordance with the policy of the national office."

Qray, boll* of Woodward, **}*; Jjujh Soviet Press Blasts Churchill Plan Again New Evidence on Spain Situation Expected Soon WASHINGTON, March 12.—</P>— Prance is expected shortly to submit fresh evidence on Spain to this country in a renewed bid for American support in carrying the case against Gerenalissimo Franco to UNO's security council. The original French proposal drew a formal rejection from the United States, which thereby broadened the split among the permanent Big Five members of the security council. Russia has sided . with France in agreeing that the United Nations agency should be given a complaint against Franco, while the United States and Britain are opposed. On another of the diplomatic fronts involving the United States and Russia, the state 'department yesterday made public a note denying Russian influencing the make up of the Bulgarian government. Also last night the department released the text of its note to France on Spain. This communication, however,'left the way open for reconsideration of the American position provided there is new evidence on which to bas'e a case against Franco in the security council. Diplomatic officials familiar with the French view, say Paris may seek to show: First that with approximately 2,000,000 men under arms in Spain, Franco has the largest army in relation to population of any country in Europe today, and, Second, that about the time France closed the Spanish frontier recently Franco reinforced his frontier military units. The French argue that these things are evidence of a menace of International peace and security. •-«>•—.—— Charges Made, Fines Paid in County Court A charge against John McDonald was filed yesterday in county court for threats on life. He was arrested in Borger and was to be placed in the custody of the county sheriff department. Bob Hooker, charged with aggravated assault on his wife last Friday, was fined$200 and costs of $18.05. Talmage Conditt, charged with driving while intoxicated, was fined 150 and costs. MOSCOW, March 12— UP) —A spe.dal writer in the Soviet government newspaper Izvestia declared today that if Winston Churchill's proposals concerning British-American military cooperation;met with success they would "sharply ohange for the worse the already, tense" world situation. SECOND ATTACK MADE Brefton Woods Signatories Shying Away SAVANNAH. March 12—(/Pi-Russia and other Bret ton Woods sigm<- tories who have been dilatory about entering tha world bank and funri j rosy be granted only six months in which to join the global lending and currency stabilizing agencies." DEADLINE PROBABLE Secretary if Uir Treasury Fr^d M. Vinson, chairman of the boards ot governors of the twin institutions, told a reporter that the membership committee of the international monetary 'jonferen 'e on Wilmington Island near here probably would set such a deadline. Alter that time, even countries which signed thc 1944 agreements treating the$9,100,000,000 bank and $8.800,000 fund, would have to see 1 / admission as new applicants. TERMS OF ENTRY This would subject them- to entry on terms and conditions imposed by the governing boards, in which the present "Big Five"—the U. S., Britain, China, France and India—dominate the voting. Thc late-con'ers also would be subject to a re-fixing of their quotas of gold and :urrency to oe subscribed to the bank and fund. Australia has hesitated to ratify until Russia does, officials in Canberra have stated.

""' • _'. REPETITION OF 1941 The article written by the Aca- demian, Eugene Tiyle, said that Russia would r.ot allow a repetition of 1941 and would "not permit even •a most modest preparation for an attack on our borders." "Today .'n some Knglish newspapers," the writer said, "has slippet the dangerously untrue words: 'The Russian people respect force. Show them we. are strong.'

Troop 14 Spouis Organize Pairol Nine Pampa Scouts, all of Troop 14, organized the Boy Scout Emergency Service oatrol under the direction of Eagle Scout Raymond Perkins in a meeting last night. The patrol is being formed of all boys who are senior scouts—those 15 to 18 years of age—and who can pass a rigid physical examination At the present time, Troop 14 is the only Senior scout troop in Pampa, according to Scout Executive Hugo Olsen but it is expected that another troop will be formed in the near future. Dulties of the patrol will be to 1 assist city police and firemen in any emergency that may arise here, in addition to working with the Red Cross and other relief agencies. The group spent an hour last night learning new methods of artificial respiration, and 30 minutes each on rope work and conditioning exercises. The next class is to be held next Monday night at 7 o'clock in the Palm Room of the city hall, which has been reserved for the patrol each Monday night for seven weeks. Members of the patrol are: Eagle Scouts Hansel Kennedy, Dick McCune, Floyd Brandt and Hobart Fatheree; Life Scout Eugene SViwell, and Stav Scouts Richard Schieg, Max Hukill, Tommy Riggs and Donald Thut. Committee Demand for Boost In Rent Ceilings WASHINGTON, March 12—!.?•)-Congress, allergic to election-year hot potatoes, jugg'ed a request today for a mandatory 15 percent hike in'the general rent level of residential property throughout the nation. The recommendation was presented to the house banking committee by representatives of rental prop erty owners who argued that sue a boost is essential in justice to th property owners. They urged that provision for compulsory increase be written hit pending legislation to continue OP. pri:e controls for another year at ter June 30. A spot check of committee mem bers indicated coolness to any sue: blanket increase, which obviousl. would affect a host of rent-payin voters. However, there were som signs an attempt might be made U have any revised OP.A law carry ai emphatic direction that rents mus reflect :v fair return on residentia property value. In addition to the tou:hy election year aspects of the proposal, it alsi involved the consideration that tlv increase would mean higher expen ses for members of congress whc rent homes in Washington, or i; their own constituencies. The rent increase was recommended by George M. Englar of Baltimore, president of the nationa apartment owners association, anc Arthur D. Koppel, vice chairman oi the metropolitan fair rent commit- ,ee of New York. They contended OPA has conducted a propaganda campaign, arousing tenants against owners and inciting class hatred.
