BEATJIE Lippstaclt, Germany, Sept. 17 — (UPi— From Ihc town of Lippsladt down to the Rhine the Ruhr slopes gently over rolling, forested hills and tilled valleys which at first glance look as though the land had always been at peace. Fields are well kept, the forests arc Ihick and green and 'Lh^ hay- slacks arc fat and yellow. Everywhere from behind the hills forests of tall brick chimneys or spidery steel scaffoldings mark the mine- shafts of the great Ruhr coalfield..

The Ruhr is caught in a vicious circle of coal and food. Wilh more coal the population could be fed more than the present ncar-Hlarva- tion diet. But without more food the incentive to mine more coal is gone. OPA Head Asks Price Control on Dairy Products By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON Washington, Sept. 18 — (IP)— OPA Chief Paul Porter today urged, the Price Decontrol Board to restore price ceilings to all dairy roducts, saying such action "is essential to j the stabilization program." Porter sent a lengthy report on retail and wholesale urices and supplies of milk, butler, cheese and oher dairy producls to the board as it met to decide the future of dairy products now free from ceiling. : . The figures showed, Porter told the board, lhat dairy product prices of former June 30 ceilings plus subsidies. He added at the prices of cheese, butter anG oilier manufactured producls "indicate-a trchd which if continued, will in a very short time lead lo a general price level substantially and dangerously above the level of former ceilings plus subsidy." A decision on rccontrol of dairy producls is not expected today and may be delayed several days. Porter informed the board that his slaff is collccling additional data which would be available within the next few day. Aside from Porter's statement, a flood of conflicting recommendations reached the three-man panel. Various segments of the dairy industry approved rccontrol. The National Cheese Institute staled that cheese prices, previously critized by the board, were reasonable and that sucplie* will be sufficcn to meet domestic needs although the government plans export of 60,000,000 pounds of cheese in the six months beginning Sept. 1. Similarly, the American Butter Institute, claiming to speak for 00 percent of creamery butter producers, contended that both wholesale and retail butter prices had remained below ceilings that OPA would have been forced to place on butter this month if it had remained controlled. On the opposite side, several con- sumer.and organized labor groups urged immediate recontrol of milk and all other dairy products.. „ President Walter P. Keuther of the CIO auto workers advocated're- control, telling the board that butler prices in Detroit arc up as much as 30 percent at retail levels. He said he spoke for 800,000 auto workers.

Even with a student body of 10,000 to draw from, Falcone is having a tough time organizing a 100-picce band for the football opener Sept. 28. Only 37 members of previous M.S.C. bands want to return. "The cx-GI's just don't want to spend an hour a day for : the next three months march/ ing up and down a drill field," moaned Falcone. "I've got to find some 50 players among the freshmen.' Wallace Talk | Stirs Peace Conference By MEL MOST , Paris, Sept. lb —(IF)— The Paris peace conference, stirred by news of Secretary of Commerce Henry A. Wallace's demand for an American-Russian atomic treaty,, headed today for a showdown on a bitterly contested British effort to prohibit atom bomb production in the beaten Balkan nationals. Believe Wallace Must Shut Up Or Get Out By LYLE C. WILSON Washington, Sept. 19 — (UP) — Secretary of Commerce Henry A. Wallace either will shut up on foreign policy or get out of the cabinet, it was widely believed today, as the administration's 'amlly cri sis took 'a showdown turn. The alternative almost inevitably would be an irreparable break with Secretary of Slate James F. Byrnes, now heading our peace conference delegation in Paris. In a letter published last night I without President Truman's approval, Wallace said the president's foreign policy headed toward ultimate danger of war. Wallace insisted upon a more conciliatory policy toward the Soviet Union. Mr. Truman and his secretary of commerce have a 2:30 p. m. (CST) appointment at the White House today. If the president should now in-: sist that Wallace avoid further public opposition to administration foreign policy, the secretary of commerce might well agree on grounds he has had his say — and loudly. His war warning was made public last night in a 4,000-word letter to Mr. Truman. Though a misunderstanding with the White House, • Wallace released il though Ihe Commerce Department without Mr. .Truman's okay. The letter was dated July 23, 1946. 75th Anniversary for University of Arkansas Fayettevile, Sept. 18 — (/P)— Today is the 75th anniversary of the University of Arkansas.

The BrilisJi amendment—seeking | Wallace warned of an atomic Little Rock and Jackson, were to be stud'.eCV. lo add atomic fission weapons and controlled torpedoes to the *'sl of arms prohibited in Bulgaria—already has met with violent Slav opposition in the military commission, which had the matter on Monday's agcntia 'out put it off with a decision to complete work on the Ilalian treaty first. Consideration of the banned weapons clause of the Hungarian treaty ;also was delayed. 1 Now the commission was passed provisionally on all of ils Ilalian Irealy clauses and has only to consider Italian appeals before reaching the test fight on prohibited •weapons for Soviet-backed Bulgaria. And the explosive issue it had sought to cool off by delay had become holler than ever as a result of the release yesterday by Wallace of his letter on atomic energy to President Truman. The British unobtrusively slipped the words "atomic bomb?" into an ''(amendment last week which jadded controlled torpedoes to the .list bf possible-moderni-weapons—• including guided missies— which Bulgaria "shall not possess, construct, or experiment with." The-Slav delegations spotted the words at once, objected" and blocked all immediate consideration of the proposal, putting it on '.he military commission's sched- armamenls race and objected to this year's $13,000.000,000 national defense budget.

Restaurants also began closing, protesting that they could not afford to sell meat at OPA ceilings even • if meat were abundant.

Mudgett, mem her of the olcal livestock show committee, presented Clyde E. Bird, secretary-manager of the Arkansas Livcstqck Assocaiation , who outlined the stateprogram to members of the Kiwanis Club at its regular meeting Tuesday. Mr. Bird is reviewing progress in Arkansas pointed out that livestock is the state's second largest industry with the 1945 income totaling $118,78,000 as compared lo $13,997,009 in 1932. The state is well suiied to cattle industry due to long summer seasons, mild winters and an abundance of pasture land and fresh water, he said. Stock,shows this year will be grest in the industry.'s history and are held to creat and keep interest alive. Hempstead county, seat of the southwest district's show, is making plans for the best show ever held in this section. The event is expected to attract thousands. W. P.

Last year's total collections were ,$17,699,94(i, leaving a surplus of $2,196,883 which has not been appropriated because the Legislature has nol been in session. And for Ibis fiscal year, Bohlinger sees lolal collodions of $20,000,000—which he admitted is i\ conservative figure—with its accompanying surplus of approximately $5,000,000. Inis boost in revenue, based on collections totaling $7,- G42.000 through August, will come through added gasoline sales and increased traffic on the state's highways, in addition lo the $22.000.900 which can be spent for construction during Ihc 1947 fiscal year, ihe slate now has ' some $8,000,000 worth of construction work under contract and is trying daily to let additional contracts. However, shortage of materials and high costs nave hampered ihe construc- lion program somewhat. And both Baker and Bohlingcr frankly admit that they don't know if they could spend additional 'unds right now if they had them. One other source of revenue may be turned into highway funds by the legislature — although it seems likely al present that, it will be set aside for a governor's mansion, the stale hospital or for other needs. However, ihe legislature will have a general revenue sur- price increase for restaurants if they can prove they deserve one, "If sufficient evidence were presented," Gille said in an interview, "OPA might even grant more to restaurants than just an allowance for increased meat costs. 1 But so far, he said, the OPA restaurant industry advisory com- miltee has presented no information to show it is not earning a profit equal that in the 1936-39 period, the yardstick for granting increases. OPA's 10 per cent rollback in cafe meat prices has the reslau-. rant industry up in arms. Some establishments have threatened to close down, stop serving meat or to fight the OPA order in the courts. In halting export allocations of meal, the Agriculture Department said: "The heavy liquidation of livestock during July and August and reduced marketings since Sept, 1 make it impractical at this time to set up commitments against uncertain fourth-quarter supplies,' For the present at least, this means that only about 20,000,000 pounds of.meat left over from third-quarter allocations under the allocation prograh will be available for export during the rest of 194G. In addition to such exports, of course, the Unilcd Slates will continue sending meat overseas to American occupation troops, Allocations also will continue for U.S. territories. The department had allocated 1,315,000 pounds of meat for export during all of 1946. In addition, it had hoped to make up a deficit of 300,000,000 pounds from 1945 commitments. Up to June 30, total shipments were 800,000,000 pounds. Thc lapse ol price controls on June 30 raised meat prices to such an extent that foreign purchases virtually came to a hall. plus Gov. Ben Lancy calls it a true surplus — ranging upward of ¥5.000,000 which it may appropriate for any state purpose it sees fit.

Rice Ration Cut One-Third Department Says Washington, Sept. 18—(/P>—Americans will get nearly a third Jess rice during the last quarter of this year than in the corresponding 1945 quarter under an allocation program announced today by the Agriculture Department. Civilians were allocated 3,300.000 bags of milled rice of 100 pounds each for the quarter. This is about 1,000,000 bags less than civilians consumed during the last quarter of 1915. The department said, however, lhat the civilian supply for the 12 months ending next June 30 would lolal 8,000,000 bags compared wilh 7,000,000 for the preceding' 12 monahs. The remainder of the -ourth quarter allowable supply will be exported to food shortage areas, particularly in the Far East.
