The doctor was quoted as saying that he knew of two children who had been born without brains, but, "the mothers were a considerable distance from the blast and it can not be decided that these abnor- I malities were the result of the UUI1IU. The agency gave the doctor's name as Sh'igeru Ito and, said he was in the obstetrical department of the hospifal which the Japanese government established after the bomb burst over Nagasaki in August, 1945. It said the residents of Nagasaki had received "a big jolt" from the atom bomb commission report in Washington last week Indicating that freak births or mutations wore possible long-range results of the bombing. - Last January in Tokyo, members of the commission who are conducting - long-term survey at both Nagasaki and Hiroshima daid their studies had f-aile to disclose a single case of hereditary effects of the bombing but that the final an swer will not be known for 50 years. . . Commenting on the recent Washington report, Dr. Ito attached no significance to 'the notation that more men than women had been killed. He said, "there were big factories in the blast center and more men thp,n women worked in them." : Couple Donate 80 Million, Call It 'Selfishness' Houston, Tex., March 31 A gift of $80,000,000 or more was described as "just selfishness" by the donors last night. ' ".::; The philanthropic . gesture one of the most generous in history was announced today in behalf of himself and his wife by Hugh Roy Cullen, Houston oilman, before a meeting of the Texas Medical Association. Cullen, whose story is a typical one of "rags to riches,' told the meeting that within a month he will establish the H. R. ' Cullen Foundation for the purpose of aiding educational, hospital and charitable institutions. Cullen and his wife plan to turn over to the foundation their royal-tics on between 30,000,000 and 40,-000,000 barrels of oil, now valued at $2.10 a barrel. ; ... Attorneys and oilmen estimated the gift ultimately will run much higher than the original contribution. They pointed out that the price of oil will increase substan-tally. Cullen told newsmen that the gift is "just selfishness on our part. We wish to see the money spent during our lifetime so we may de rive great pleasure from it." He added that he and Mrs. Cullen had been "thinking for a year or tw0 about making the gift" and that they may give more money away.

Governor M. ti. Thompson has either demoted or discharged officers of the State Highway Patrol who barred former Gov. Ellis Arnall from the executive mansion ; and guarded Herman Talmadge and his ap pointees at the state capitol. The governor indicated further firings were in prospect He said: "I am going to get rid of all the politicians on .the State Hierhwav Patrol and appoint World War veterans in their places. There may be more than a 50 percent turnover in personnel before the' patrol is really efficient again. I jjiscnargea personnel were fired for violating a patrol rule against participation in politics and for insubordination. . When the Legislature elected Herman Talmadge governor last Jan. 14, highway patrolmen were detailed to keep order at the capitol and the executive mansion grounds. Patrolmen refused to permit the then Governor Arnall to enter the mansion. Eleven days ago, the Supreme Court ruled Talmadcre'R aWH by the Legislature was invalid.

Washington, April 2. A strange story has just come out of the jungles of Africa. It is one which people with faith will believe, whHe those of little faith will seek a scientific answer. It is a story which repeats today a tale many centuries old. This is the older report: "Then said the LorVl unto Moses, Behold I will rain ' bread from heaven for you, and the people shall go out and gather a certain portion every day that l may prove them whether -, they will walk in my. law or not. "And when the dew that lay was gone, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground. And when the children of Israel saw it they said one to another, 'it is manna, for they knew not what it was. "And Moses said unto them, 'this is the bread which the Lord has given you to eat.'" In March 1939 about 400 members of the Seles tribe of Central Angola, West Africa, were on the verere of starvation. The rain failed and the crops did not grow, Their corn was gone, and th grasshoppers the tribe ate had dis appeared. . Twenty years earlier, a Chris tian mission had been established among the tribe, and soon its mem. bers formed a Christian communi tv. led by Carlos Scqueseque. Carlos was away from home in 1939 at the time of the famine, His wife that 19th day of March called the people together for prayer. She read them passages in the Bible recounting how the Lord had sent manna to his people in the time of Moses. What then happened, Seque scqtie himself reported in a letter to Mrs. W. H. Carpenter, wife of a missionary who had befriended him as a small boy. A literal translation of the letter was made bv the Rev. E. L. Cardy, an evam gelist living at Cape Town, South Africa. Mr. Cardy was in Wash ington for a visit last month and brought details of the story. The letter by Sequeseque said "Also the Manna came thus: God chose a little girl that was born on the 13 of March, 1934 that is, the . girl was five years Old. ' "This girl did the wise. On the 19th of March she wandered away out into , the woods, and there found the manna scattered around on the ground. Then the girl began to eat, and when she became filled she returned home to get a plate. She filled the plate and was eating from it in the midst of older people, and the older folks asked her what she was eating. "She told them that she was eating manna, which she said was eaten by our fathers, Moses and Didquidiqui (Aaron), there in the desert. "Moreover, the girl described six strange persons she saw out there. Then the older people followed on. They found the manna on the ground; it was scattered on the ground and on the leaves of the trees. The people of Namba vil lage called tho others and then showed their faith and belief and joy. The men, women and little children all ate and. each filled a plate of it. "When I returned from Kongo I found that a boy had saved a little of it for me. I ate part and divided the rest into three parts, one for my mother (meaning Mrs. Carpenter), one for Pastor Curtis at Nova Lisboa and what remained I kept to use in working here in our land of Angola. .'Now to prove my certainty of it I have sent a sample of manna, which fell on our village of Namba, to you my mother." Mr. Cardy explained the little girl was the child of the Seques-eques. There were no trees near tho plnco where the manna foil, ho said, stating the "woods" referred to in the letter were what we would call "sage brush." The Cape Town evangelist had several samples of manna in a glass bottle. It has a sweetness like honey and melts easily on the tongue, he explained. He had a few pieces left of the supply he had brought to this country, the remainder having been eaten here. Mr. Cardy lived in Takoma Park, Md., from 1928 to 1930 as a member of the Seventh Day Ad-ventist organization. At present Mr. Cardy is head of the Voice of Prophecy Bible School, Cape Town, where he has lived since 1938. Bills Proposed To Block Phone Strike by Courts Washington, April 1. Two bills to block any long telephone strike by injunction were introduced in the House today. One, by Rep. Hartley (R-NJ), is to be voted on tomorrow by the House Labor Committee which he heads. It could scarcely be passed by Friday, the date set by the National Federation of Telephone Workers for a nationwide strike, but it might serve later to halt any long walk-out. A similar measure was introduced by Rep. Hoffman (R-Mich). His would be permanent, however, while Hartley's is intended as a stop-gap until Congress- passes permanent legislation and would expire July 31 or when Congress adjourns. Both would amend the Norris-LaGuardia anti-injunction act and empower the government to obtain an injunction to stop a strike threatening the public health, welfare or safety. Hartley's measure also would provide for 30 days of mediation. After that, the National Labor Relations board would hold a secret ballot , election among the workers to determine whether they wished to accept the management's latest offer. Hoffman said his bill would cover not only a telephone strike but also "any further extended mourning" period called for by Mr. John L. Lewis." He referred to the six-day memorial lay-off called by Lewis for the balance of this week in the soft coal fields. While these congressional moves were under way,' Conciliation Di rector tdgar L. Warren and Assistant Secretary of Labor John W. Gibson studied the chances for mediating the telephone dispute. Warren said 15 conciliation conferences had been arranged throughout the nation but that ne gotiations between the companies and the union thus far had produced little progress. The key negotiations between the American Telephone and Telegraph company's long lines divi sion, the long distance operators, are under way in New York but may be moved to Washington.
