Unity is Aim of Arkansas Democrats Whittakcr Appeal Denied Little Rock, Sept. 6—OP)—Any policy other than complete unity of the Democratic party in Arkansas "would be shortsighted indeed," W. W. Sharp, Brinkley, declared today in the keynote address of the party's biennial state convention. "Any other policy would tend to weaken or destroy our partv. which is the only effective weapon we have with which to fight off encroachment upon rights that through the years we have felt must be preserved for the security of nur social welfare," he said. Sharp, attorney and planter — a member of the University of Arkansas board of trustees and vice chairman of the State Bar Association, did not refer directly to ->rooosals bv the Phillips county ommitte ethat soulhern Demo- rats "secede" from the National arty. However, he declared: "Regardless of how extreme the ase may be, we dare not turn gainst our party, or its nominees, nee a majority has spoken, hrough its properly constituted gencies. xxx "Our party has led the people f this nation out of a depression nd successfully through a world •ar, and its statesmen can and •ill lead its people into tranquility, rosperity and a lasting peace. "Our party offers to the people f this state a leadership that has een tried and proven worthy xx." Sharp's address was the high- ght of the opening session which asted slightly more than an hour, "he convention ooened less than T> hour after the Democratic State Committee named two years ago ad adjourned sine die. The outgoing committee rejected 'for lack of jurisdiction" a peti- ion by Lee Whittakcr, Fort Smith, hat it hear his contest of the sev- nlh district congressional cam- iaign in which he opposed Rep ^adjo Cravens. The committee acted after it tad certified results of election sin 11 state and district offices, including Cravens' nomination. The committee, holdings its final meeting before election of a new group by the state convontion which opened at noon, alpn; Adopted a >report of a special :ommitte ewhich recommended repeal of Act 107 of 1945 and voted o refer the report to the resolu- ions committee of the convention; Continued until organization of he new committee any action for •evision of party rule?, and, Passed over for the new committee's consideration an election against involving four Van Burcn county committeemcn. June Woolen, veteran committee member, reported from the floor hat another committee which he headed had decided that revision >f the party rules was the func- ion of the slate party commiliee and should be left to the new party committee.

Boston, Sept. 6 — <lf)~ The Vel- erans of Foreign Wars -17th national encampment today advocated that the United Stales "keep vhe secret ot the atomic bomb." Contending that "doubt and suspicion" among nations had seriously retarded efforts to set up effective machinery to outlaw war and . guarantee international pcaoo, the ' convention adopted a resolution i advocating that this country "re-' lain exclusively" Ihe formual and processing methods in the develop- nicnt oT atomic energy. The convention also callM for complusory Americanism orientation courses for the armed services nnd authorized its commander, to call on President Truman vo request a special session of Congress to create a job-finding council for veterans. Louis E. Starr, 48-year old Portland, Ore., attorney, was elected national commander by acclamation. Ray H. Brannamnn, Denver, Colo., was t'ne unanimous choise for senior vice commander.

The writer proposes lhat any cadet or midshipman who busls ' out or resigns s'.iould be drafted immediately (not just classified 1-A as Clyde ScoU nas been) "to give them a session of practical experience to go with the theory learned at the academies." . . . There might be some "hardship cases" which could be dealt with accordingly, but in general it seems like a sensible idea that the army and navy should make the best use of what knowledge the boys attained in a year or two of study even if they weren't going on to become officers . . . "The whole situation,' 'the soulhern writer adds, "hasn't helped the Southeastern Conference —if it has any- tnmg to lose."

They Just Doesn't See How Keep'em Up By FREDERICK C. OTHMAN Allanlic City, N. J., Sept. 6 — (UP)— I think I know who's going to win Ihe Atlantic City beauty contest, but who cares, except possibly heir mother? Let's skip the future Miss America for a minute and consider something important, such as how a beauty queen holds up a topless' dress. She does not depend on personal magnetism.

When I walked in she was wondering whether to wear her yellow curls up, or down. I suggested up. She- put 'cm down. The hotel room of the ladies was a shambles of fluffy ruffles, ironing boards, curling pins, fingernail goo, and wilted orchids. On the only easy chair was draped a black lace evening gown retail value $56, which the merchants of Burlington had presented to Miss Vermont. "We have got to keep it spread out on the chair because it has, no straps,"-Mrs. Langlais apologized. "We tried and we tried, but how can you hang up a dress, when there is nothing to hang it from?" This was my opening. I said if this frock would nol han« on a clothes hanger, how could it be expected to hang on Miss Vermont? The ladies said that was a reasonable question. They shower, me some of the cngieering details They told all. With no further introduction I present for the first time in any newspaper th? fuels about the topless eveing dress: The lady planning tostartle the male sex and keep it worried :ior the rest of the evening puts on first an abbreviated undershirt, known in female jargon as a brassiere. This is no ordinary garment II is reinforced wilh loops of steel spring wire. When one of these wires breaks out of its holster, as sometimes happens. and goes z-in-g, the lady is likely to get a nasty smack on her chin. This is a hazard she musl face. So now she's anchored inside her undershirt. She slops inlo her dress, which has invisible hooks j around the top. She bolts these to I brackets built into 'the undershirt, and there she is. "When first saw such a dress, L too, expected an accident momentarily," Mrs. Langlais said. "Actually it is as solid as Gibraltar." Gosh, Mrs. Langlais! We went on to Convention Hall where Miss Vermont performed without incident in her masterfully engineered black lace. Numerous others also displayed the bodies beautiCul, including Marilyn Buf- ered of Los Angeles. She wore Ihe dpggonedest dingus a man ever sasv. It consisted of a eold uct-u- 8-0.

That plan would have checked any unified Gcrmaiv scheme for war-making — as evidenced by the relative peacefulness of Germans before 1848.

The officer said he believed the Predicted Meat Shortage Felt in Some Areas Chicago, Sept. 9. —(P)—The nation began feeling the first effects today of a meat shortage which spokesman for the meat industry predict will be the worst in history. Packers and retailers alike predicted that butcher shops across the country will have almost no fresh meat by the end ot the week. In some cities, including Chicago and New York, the shortage was felt already. The shortage prompted Rep. Adolph J. Sabath, D., 111., to demand a government investigation. Sabath, aiming his criticism at the meal packers and the New York Stock Exchange, denounced "big business criminals who want to wreck the country for 30 lousy pieces ot silver. "The money-hungry interests don't care what happens to meat- hungry plain people, he said. "I want the Department of Justice to ascertain whether there is collusion and conspiraccy." He said there was no justification of a drop in the number of cattle shipped to the Chicago yards from 40,000 to 300.

BURTON HEATH The Choice Is Clear Rcimposition of price controls on 1many lines, and pariicularly on 'meals, has caused many lo predict resurgence.of Ihe black markets that were so active early in the Summer but subsided largely when ceilings went off. Such an unfortunate dcveloo- ment is entirely, possible, though nol at all necessary, If it transpires, it will be because of public selfishness or apathy. If it is prevented, it will not be principally by law enforcement but rather ! through the alertness of consumers. / There is litlle queslion lhat quantities of meat, and other of the scarcer consumer goods, will find their way into illegitimate hands, where they will be offered at cx- horbitanl prices lo those who insist upon gratifying their lusts at whatever price, and thai Ihey will remain in Ihose hands so long as an appreciable market exists. The consuming public as a whole Js going to be faced with a difficult choice — tcmp'tV-arily to go without, or restrict its use ot, things it wants and can pay for, -,5n order to force the return of Ic- gilimale operations; or to graity its immediate desires, at great cost lo ils pockclbook and at the risk of upselling Ihc whole , economic applecart. Meat, or any other desirable commodity, will go into the black market only so long as a fooliip public is willing to buy il under the counter al unnecessarily high prices. When price controls went of, and meal appeared in stores at high prices and in quantities eno- •''ugli to allay the almost frantic public feeling of deprivation, a modified buyers' strike began to develop which, if it had been given time lo spread and strengthen, \woulil have brought prices down. The grcal danger ot a black .market now is thai, when meat begins lo disappear from legili- mate shelves and to be found principally under Ihe counter, housewives will forget lhal Ihey found il entirely possible lo resist high prices during the hiatus, and will be .. igin scrambling desperately for anything from anybody at any price. The choice is clear. We can buy on the black market, which no government enforcement agency can do more than harass, and thereby delay the return of a normal economy. Or we can temporarily go without, or restrict our use of scarce commodities to what is available from legitimate dealers, and thereby break the black market.

STEELE Washington, Sept. 9 — CUP) — Thousands of tons of vital steel rail specially earmarked by Gen. George C. Marshall for rebuilding China's railroads have been sent instead to Yugoslavia, UNRRA records indicated today. The records were made public by 'Sen. Styles Bridges, R., N.

The rails wcre : obtained :"or China on highest government priority at .he request of Marshall, President Truman's special envoy in the negotiations to settle China's civil strife. However, on Aug.-7 and again on Aug. 9—the day Yugoslav fighters shot down the first of two unarmed American transport planes— UNRRA's industrial rehabilitation division ordered the greater parl re-routed to Yugoslavia, the records indicated. Bridges said "it seems ironic that while ships carrying the bodies of fliers shot down by Yugoslav planes were traversing the Atlantic in one direction, other shins were traveling in the opposite direction carrying steel for the Yugoslavs." The records indicated that a vot- al of 8,251 Ions of rail valued at $337,348, were ordered transferred o Yugoslavia as they awaited ship- nent to China in U. 55. warehouses.

Hospital Aid Bill Most Significant Social Measure Liltlc Rock, Scpl. 9 — (/P; — The — since Congress more federal aid. Under the new law the federal ranged with the army chief of engineers to have the rails declared surplus for China. The War Assets Administration gave UNRRA the highest priority with the understanding Ihc rails were to be "sent .o China and nowhere else." In May, 1946, UNRRA officials and James Lee of the China supply nission made a three weeks trip .o locate the rails and freeze them 'or delivery to China. On Aug. 7 and 9, UNRRA's industrial rehabilitation division, headed by Norman L. Gold, ordered five of six rail shipments stockpiled in warehouses re-classified rom "warehouse for China to Yugoslavia." The orders involved the 8,251 tons with the $337,348 value. China, the records indicated, re ccivcd one of the six orders "rigin- ally earmarked for her—a shipment of 2,538 tons, valued at $112,661. One UNRRA official referred to the transfer in those words: "The War Assets Administration has cooperated willingly with UNRRA and with the Civilian Production Administration in making all this material available; 'therefore il behooves this organization (UNRRA) not to break £aith in the handling of these purchases from surplus property. Such a breach at this time will do an inestimable amount of damage to UNRRA's reputation with War Assets Administration and 'ihe Civilian Production Administration." Other correspondence indicated War Assets was "powerless" to halt, shipping instructions issued by Gold's Industrial Rehabilitation Division.
