Mr. Wat- dns estimated that salaries and maintenance for 5 nurses recruited or the University Hospital and one nurse for the Arkansas Children's Home and Hospital for the month of August would amount to approx- mately $2,000.00. This month's expenditures will total approximately 510,699.95.

But we've put pretty strict limits on the kind of jurisdiction the court can have over us. For example :The court has no authority over problems which we consider domestic, like tariffs or immigration. We've agreed to let tho court have jurisdiction over legal disputes ,only. For example: Interpreting a treaty if a dispute arose with another country. (The shooting down of American planes by Yugoslav airmen, for instance, wouldn't be a problem for the court. We'd 'cake it to the U. N. security council. (There'll probably be plenty of .arguments over what is a case for the court, and what isn't.) Here's the background of our de cision to let the court have juris diction.

Wheeler, co-captain of the 1943 Razorbacks who has played, an 'iron man' role for the last three years, recently underwent an operation in which a cyst was removed from his right side. His recovery tias not been sufficient to enable the Fort Smith giant to play football this fall, Barnhill reported. The Porker mentor said he still is apprehensive over a foot injury Scott suffered with Navy last season. He said a bone separation in the foot still troubled the swift halfback and thai Scott probably would have to be used sparingly.

South Africa so desperately needs immigrants that it is appealing to people all over Ihe world to migrate there. And its efforts, too, thus far have met largely with failure. Thc South African crisis is none the less real for the fact thjit until recently it has been little Known. Development of Free State gold deposits, extension and diversification of manufacturing, and a period of unprecedented economic growth for which the plans have long been completed all arc forestalled by a labor shortage of Daggering proportions. The Pretoria government apparently desires and can accomodate i'Jmost an unlimited number of im- Tnigranls. It needs workers of virtually every category "and degree of skill. It needs them so immediately lhat it preparing a scries of handbooks in many languages to bo given' the widest possible distribution in an effort lo interest peo- pic all over Ihc world in Ihe opportunities South Africa has to offer. "The shortage of manpower is becoming increasingly insistent and obtrusive," said Field Marshal Jan C. Smuts recently. And he went pin to add that "eycry kind of good 'and useful immigrant would be welcome" and that "we want good Europeans. We can get hundreds of thousands, millions of them. We want a strong flow to supplement our human resources." While Jewish refugees look in vain for a home, then, thc Union of South Africa looks in vain for immigrants. Thc two problems, considered as a unit, could readily be solved. The Jewish wanderers, offered Ihe refuge they seek in South Africa, would provide Soulh V;\frica with the manpower it seeks. South Africa has what perhaps no other nalion on earth has at present— a labor shortage and thc resources necessary to support tho immigrants who can relieve tha shortage. It can, therefore, afford the Jewish refugees the genuine op portunity they seek. Thc Jewish refugees, on the olhe bund, have something equally valu able to offer Soulh Africa. They „ constitute a band if migrants both prognui eager and desirable. They ar market, industrious, intelligent, energetic— 'and they are available in Ircmcnc mis numbers. The very industr which inspires such violent oppos lion to their admittance to Pales tine among thc nomadic Arabs renders them ideal for the African purpose. Why docs not South Africa extend its immigration invitation spccifi: cally lo Ihe Jewish refugees— and i in so doing, convert mutual need i into mutual opportunity? j Case Against WAC v for Jewel Theft ; Put Off 3 Weeks i Frankfurt, Germany, Aug 29— i — Thc prosecution concluded today i its case against Mrs. Kathlcei !
