(AP) — A once ugly duckling is taking the first bows of this tardily np into ft Great Lakes iron ore shipping season — and may be taking the last ones years hence ^he first cargo pushing toward the Eastern steel mills today is a load of taconite — on«e despised poor relation of the rich Mesabi iron range. But you can..-make steel from tecontfe—even if it costs more to •Jttract it* iron. .And this year the irott and steel industry's closest ment dollars—may be paid to taconite, although its share in steel making may be email for some time. for ttoe traditional iron ore cargoes on the lake is fairly slim right now. Stvtl companies with offices mines in the Mesabi range northern Minnesota may not at all this spring. And over the horizon of tomorrow are pointing the prows of iron- ore-laden craft from Labrador and from Venezuela-to challenge the long reign of the Mesabi. Xtttle Appeal Before Taconite is a hard red rock with iron in it. But the iron has been ao hard to pry loose that its as the Mesabi range could be tapped easily for its huge store of rich, freely handling iron ore. From the Mesabi has come most of the nation's iron for generations. And there's lots more there to be mined and shipped down the lakes to the steel mills that flourish near he coal fields. Steel making requires both iron and coal and must But two world wars with their have -shown the nation that even the Mesibi iron range isn't inexhaustible. And the iron industry has looied two ways: to Venezuela, Liberia and' Labrador, where it found new iron deposits; and to Minnesota's plentiful but stubborn taconite. The industry has finally developed a process for crushing the hard rock and extracting the iron ore which it says is .economical. Steel companies, with an eye on mother rock had little appeal to I the day when taconite could be the iron and steel masters so long j their chief sources, particularly in Building Permits md Real Estate Transfers Five building permits were issued by the city engineer last week including two for residences and three lor additions to residences.

The first 18,000-ton shipment of taconite is now on its way to the iron foundries. Taconite is shipped in the form of small pellets of very high- grade ore, extracted in the Minnesota concentration plant* from the low-grade rock ore. The Great Lakes ore fleet carried a record 93 million tons of Mesabi are last year. This year a total of 73 million tons is estimated. Operating: well below ca- qucity, steel mills' appetite for iron has been pickish of late. And stocks of iron ore, brought down last fall before ice closed the lakes, are still piled up—some 15 per cent higher than a year ago, and represent a five-month supply. The big steel companies only now are sending out their first ore- laden ships, about a month later than last year, although the lakes have been freed of ice. Some iron miners look with suspicion on the proposal to open the Great Lakes to ocean traffic through the St. Lawrence. They know that big deposits of Labrador iron are about to be tapped, and that a railroad to bring them to the north bank of the St. Lawrence will soon be completed. Some fear the competition of that Labrador ore with Mesabi ore at the Lake Erie ports near the steel mills. But advocates of the St. Lawrence project point out that the water distance would be about the same for either ore cargo; and that the Labrador ore would first have to travel by rail from the mine to the boat, giving the Minnesota' ore a cost advantage. And then there's . taconite. It wouldn't be the first time a once role. ; The rare spier grows Qn^i certain places. Crown Colony foiows where Look for fhr'i $»ol.

Smart Furniture aided by two ex-husbands in winning back custody of her two little girls, has settled down in a New York hotel suite with the children and her current husband. The glamorous movie star is "a loving and devoted mother," declared the judge in announcing disposition of charges that the children had been neglected. He was quoting one former husband, actor Orson Welles. The neglect case was worked-out in a three-hour private Conference yesterday with Children's Judge George W. Smyth in surburban White Plains. Present were representatives of the Westchester County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, which filed the complaint on which the case was based. Charges Dismissed Smyth, who had placed the children in protective custody of the court last Friday but" left them in the care of their governess, returned them to their mother. The charges of neglect were dismissed but the court agreement required Miss Hay worth to concede there had been at least a technical basis for the charge. The girls, Yasmin, 4, and Rebecca, 9, had been left in the care of the governess, Mrs. Dorothy Chambers, while Rita went to Florida for a two-week vacation with her husband, crooner Dick Haymes. The neglect petition, never made public, was filed after two neighbors complained that the children were not properly supervised as they played outside Mrs. Chambers' White Plains home. It's a neighborhood with heavy traffic, business establishments, motels and gasoline stations. Prince Aly Khan, father of Yasmin, sent his lawyer into the conference to help his former l wife fight the neglect charges. The prince stayed behind at Rita's White Plains hotel to play with his little daughter and afterwards reported, "I had a wonderful time. I spent the afternoon on my knees on the floor." Prince Wants Princess He declined to make any corn- He flew to New York from California yesterday and got to White Plains just in time for a visit with Miss Hay worth, Haymes and the children before the judge's conference. Later, Miss Hayworth's lawyer, Hartley Crum, announced he would meet today with Aly's attorney to work out custody terms for Yasmin. The prince has been seeking custody of the child, the first princess born into his fabulously wealthy family in 200 years. He is reported prepared to settle more than a million dollars on her when he and Rita can agree to terms. Orson Welles, now in Spain, also sent a lawyer to the conference to convey his faith in Rita as a mother. Welles is the father of Rebecca, whom Judge Smyth called "a very sweet little girl indeed."

UR — A spokesman for six Soviet concert artists touring Canada says the group has canceled performances in Quebec because auditorium owners are afraid of Premier Maurice Duplessis. The provincial government chief is an avowed anti-Communist. John Boyd of Toronto, manager of the tour, said the group had planned appearances in Quebec May 3 and 4 "but the music people in that province could not rent an auditorium for us." He said owners were afraid the anti- Red premier would exercise his power to close their halls if they let the visitors from Moscow play there. There was no immediate com- metn from Duplessis.
