Sept. 18 — <UP>— The United States hoped to put Russia's Balkan satellites on the spot today in the United Nations security council. An American "suggestion' for art investigation of friction along the frontiers of Greece and three of her Soviet-dominated neighbors —;Albania, Yugoslavia and Bulgaria — was dratted for presentation to the council. It was catenated to turn the Russian-backed Ukrainian charges against Greece and Britain into a sort of diplomatic boomerang. But Russia and the Ukraine, supported by Poland, were certain to attack the proposal, just as ihe western E owers have lined up against the oviets' demands tor U. N. action against Greek-British policy in the Balkans. In accusing "Greek monarchist elements' of threatening peace in the Balkans, the Ukraine alleged that Greeks provoked a steady stieam of border scraps with Albanians. The Greeks retorted that Albanians were responsible for ihe incidents. The United States delegation was represented as feeling that the border troubles do represent an international sorespot, but only when considered from both sides of the Greek-Albanian frontier, as well as the borders of the other two ^Balkan nations. Succeeds Glass .Willis Robertson, above, of Lexington, Va., veteran state congressman, was named by the Virginia Democratic state convention to complete the tmex- pired term of the late Sen.

Birthday Picrure Bowies Fails in Bid for Governor Nomination Hartford, Conn., Sept. 17. —(UP) —Chester Bowles, former OPA director failed in his bid today to obtain the democratic nomination for governor. The party's state conyention nominated Lieut. Gov. Wilbcrt Snow, 62-year-old Wesleyan College English professor, on the xirst ballot. Bowles conceded defeat immediately, and in an acceptance speech 'Snow paid tribute to "the sportsmanship' of his opponent. Scott Joins ROTC and is Classified 4-B Fayetteville, Sept. 17 —W)—Clyde (Smackover) Scott, powerful University of Arkansas halfback, became eligible today for an automatic 4-B selective service classification when he enrolled as an advanced ROTC studens 4-B upon ficers training corps. t Brig. Gen. E. L. Compere, state selective service director, at Little Rock, said that local draft boards automatically reclassifiec) advanced ROTC students r-B upon ..receipt of certificates from the commandant of a college's military art departments. Col. Harry W. Barrick, commandant of the university military art department, who announced Scott's enrollment, said the football star ,was eligible for advanced 'training because his two years at thn U. S. Naval Academy would count as basic, training. Scott's draft status has been given nationwide publicity since the Smackover, Ark., youth resigned this summer from the naval academy where he played i'ootball for two years and was the middies' leading ground gainer last season. A 4-B classification is a high deferment. At the time Scott declared he was resigning "because I want to get married." A few weeks later he , married Miss Leslie Hampton of Lake Village. Shortly after his resignation from navy Scott announced his intentions of attending the University of Arkansas, where his bride was a.student last year. The flet back was roclassifiecl 1-C when he left Annapolis. A few days ago his Union county draft board changed his classification to 1-A in what was described by selective service officials as "routine action." Scott is due to be an important cog in the Razorback offensive machine this season providing he does not have too much trouble with a fool injury suffered while playing with the Middies last fall. The foot injury—a bone sparation— has been a mohentus matter of concern to Razorback Coach John Barnhill. Orville Wright, co-father of the modern airplane, is pictured above as he celebrated his 75th birthday in his home town of Dayton, Ohio. "When you reach 75, birthdays aren't so unusual any more," commented Wright, who maintained his usual seven- days-a-week routine in his laboratory. Growing Labor Trouble Hits Auto Industry By United Pes Growing labor troubles besel Ihe automobile industry today as the first ships sailed from New York harbor since Ihe maritime strike started two weeks ago. Thousands of trucks reopened the life lines of New York, partially ending the 18-day general trucking strike. Nearly 500 hauling companies had signed new contracts with the AFL teamsters, but two large trucking associations continued to refuse union demands and said they would file suit for :$10, 000,000 strike damages against the union. At Houston, Tex., a "continuous meeting" of 2.300 telephone work ers started in protest against iht promotion of two telepnone com pany employes. The meeting lef the city without long distance, vole phone repair and installation serv ices.

Baker emphasized that with few exceptions protection faults found by special inspection teams were minor but that all hotel owners and operators were expected 'to take steps to correct them at once. The inspections were made several weeks ago by Baker's deputies, local : fire departmenls, insurance field inspectors and age-its of the Arkansas Fire Prevention Bureau in co-operalion wilh the Arkansas Hotel Operators Association. Baker said inspections would extend to other communities 130011 and that he had pericnally inspected hotels in other cities but ad not made formal recommen- ations. Local fire, departments are hecking compliance with rccom icndations of the inspection rpups. Baker said. He declared riminal action would be brought the cited were not remedied. He said that undoubtedly sever- 1 lives were saved in the Great orthern hotel fire at Hot Sprngs alurday because the operator had cted on recommendations of an ispection teum. One of ihese was lacing blower fans in the upper ections of windows instead of the wer sections, where they blocked ic windows 'or exit purposes.

Wallace bowed out of the cabinet with the terse announcement lhat "I shall continue to fight for peace." His aides told reporters, however, that he. "will make no campaign speech this fall." Mr. Truman gave 'nis "full endorsement" lo the policies being pursued at the Paris .peace conference by Secretary of Stale Byrnes and the American delegation. .''.'.', While solidifying American foreign policy abroad, the cabnet upheaval was viewed as presagirjg a possible split in the Democratic partys fight for congrtssional seats this November. Mr. Truman said his removal of the last of Ihe late President Roosevelt's "New Deal" secretaries was done in friendly fashion. ' After a telephone conversation with the president, Wallace addressed a letter to him as "Dear Harry" saying simply: "As you requested, here is my resignation. I shall continue to fight for peace. I am sure that you will approve and. will join me n that great endeavor.

A United States of Europe has been an objective of some of the world's best minds, especially since World War I. Briand of France was one of its prime advocates, and il was accepled in principle by Ihe League of .Nations. Jl was conceived as a federation of autonomous atatea with, an over-all arliamcnt of some sorl to handle iter-slatc relations and a joinl Tincd force for defense, like Ihc iriginal ideas for Ihc federal gov Turnout in the United Slales.

The first slop of course, would lave been establishment of something like free trade among ihe participating stales. The Russian slalc monopoly of foreign trade could hardly have filled into this, anyway. Europeans, of course, recognize the benefits which accrue to our United States because she encompasses both the industrial and agricultural areas of a continent. Industrial Europe, excluding developing Russia, may be said roughly to be composed of Scandinavia, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Austria, northern Italy and the countries which look to Ihe Atlantic. J'i 1hcm even their agricultural systems lend toward industrialization. Oul- sidc of them lies the brcadbaskcl- insufficicnl, bul subjccl to development.

"Our foreign policy as established by Ihe Congress, the president and the secretary of stale remains in full force and effect without change,' Mr. Truman declared. He said he had had a "very , friendly conversation' with Wal- .ace by telephone this morning. Ho. «aid he regretted breaking a long and pleasant official association, aut he said, too, he was sure Wallace "will be happier in the exercise of his riglit to present his views as a private citizen." There was no immediate comment from Wallace, who was in his office at the Commerce Department during the presidential news conference. Since cabinet members servo only at the pleasure of the president, a request by the latter for secrelarys' resignation automatically ousts him — he has no choice in the mailer.
