HOP 6 STAR, HOP I, ARKANSAS o Cost ditionol , Oct. 5 — (JPi— Restau- accopted with satis- y OPA's decision that herease prices of meat i 15 percent next Thurs- F. Clark, president of hal 'Restaurant Associa- (itted that now they had elt point, many will* not antage of the full increase, in some cases where res^ t have had to absorb high- i will they be passed on to isumer," Clark said. But he sed gratification that "we have been able to show OPA some adjustment was necessary." In abandoning Its attempt to hold the price of meat meals at the June 30 level, OPA announced late yesterday it had acted "to restore the prices of restaurant meat offerings to their normal relationship to the prices of other meals." Under the new price order, when the increase is applied to a meat offering which costs 20 cents or more the price will be computed to the nearest nickel. Thus a 20-ccnt sandwich will go up to 35 Cents, not 34 1-2. On charges of less than 20 cents, the price will be raised in even cent. t OPA said it would have revised regulations ready next Tuesday. These also will change the present method of computing ceilings on meals built around .entress which are not -under price control. At present ceilings are computed adding the actual cost of the item and the current over-all profit margin. After Thursday the price will be actual cost plus the margin of - When meals or dishes contain both controlled and decontrolled items, OPA said, the main dish or entree will determine whether the ceilings is fixed by the cost - plus method or the 15 percent boost as- lowed on meats. On ham and eggs, a borderline case with ham under ceilings and eggs free, the cost-plus method may be used. The new price system was worked out here at a closed conference of OPA officials and the national restaurant industry advisory committee.

For planning purposes, the War Department had figured on only 25,000. Under legislation approved a year ago, men between 17 and 34 enlisting on or before Oct. 5 for Ihrce years qualify for all dcttea- Uonal benefits upon completion of their service. After today, bonefils depend on Ihc date eventually set for Ihe official end of Iho war. Credits will accrue until then al Ihc rate of one year's education for Ihe firsl ninety clays served, plus a month for each additional month in uniform. Volunteer enlistments numbered 37,925 in the firsl three weeks of Scplembcr. Officials said incomplete reports indicated the upsurge had continued to the largcsl lolal since Juno . Altogether the army had received up to Sept. 21, 968,823 volunteers since its intensive recruiting drive starlcd last fall. This is the largcsl volunteer force on record but men still in the service were permitted to sign up for as litllc as one year, and their enlistments begin to expire Ihis month. Mr. Truman Considering Meat Problem Washington, Oct. 7—(/P)—Charles <-r. Koss, White House press secretary, reiterated today thai Prcsi- donl Truman "is considering ^very possible aspect of Ihe meal situation." Ross made Ihis assertion when he was asked about a proposal respecting the meat crisis which a reporter said had been made bv Agricullurc Secrclary Anderson The proposal was not described. Anderson, leavipg a cabinet meeting Friday, said he had cer- lain suggestions he was trying lo work out but he did not elaborate. Ross said he did not know whether the president had received a communication from the Republican Congressional Food Commil- ilec asking the lifting of meat con- 1 trols. Meanwhile, government statistics showed no feed pinch to case the meat shortage by forcing cattle to market was probable. The Bureau of Agricultural Economics said today the nation's feed supply actually is big enough to support more livestock than arc likely to be fed. ,, Bolstered by a record corn crop, the feed supply prospect as a whole Js much more favorable than it has been since 1942, the bureau's report declared. It estimated total supplies of feed concentrated for the 1946-47 feeding season — including feed grains, by-product feeds, and wheat and rye for feed—at 162,000,000 tons. This would be slightly larger than in the past season and 15 percent above the 1938-42 average. Tho bureau said the overall demand probably will be less than during the pasl season. Tolal re- quircmcnts for liveslock and poultry may be 5 to 10 percent less, principally because of fewer animals lo be fed and the improved quality of this year's corn crop. V. C. ftHMtr 09.. IMO.

There was nothing mild about Arkansas' 34-14 conquest of Texas Christian University in its opening loop «ame at Fort Worth Saturday, but Ihis achievement was far from world shattering in comparison with the Longhorns' 54-6 rout of highly-regarded Oklahoma A. & M. Tho Razorbacks, however, bc- licvc they had a part in making A. i M. easy for Texas. The Ag- gies had taken a lerritic physical beating in their tie with Arkansas the previous week and were far from top strength against the Steers. The triumph was the third in as many starts for Texas. Arkansas still is unbeaten but has been lied All olhcr Southwest elevens have tasted defeat. Arkansas was Ihc complete master of the situation aflcr il began to roll at Forl Worth. A strong wind and a disputed coffin corner punl by Jim Lucas gave TCU a 7-0 head slart in the first 'quarter. But then it was Ihc same old story. Porker Coach John Barnhill, after giving his big, bruising starters time to wear down the Horned Frogs, sent his alternate eleven onto the field. Immediately little Ken Holland repeated his customary ice-breaking feat by breaking away on a 45-yard touchdown .jaunt. After that the Frog- gies were never in the game as Aubrey Fowler and Holland did some fancy forward passing and Virtually every back who saw action shared the burden of an effcc- livc rushing game. Mosl of Ihc credil probably belonged to Arkansas' hard-fighting line. The big Razorback forwards charged TCU's passers off Iheir feet as the boys from the Ozarks very cffeclivcly slifflcd Ihc highly- touted Frog aerial atlack. It was all Arkansas in the statistics except in first downs, TCU gelling eight lo the Razorbacks' six. Five of the Frogs' firsls,-how- ever, were on pcnallios and again Arkansas shol .for touchdowns in sensalional swoops rather than on first-down-making drives. The gTinc obviously could have been as lop-sided as Barnhill wanted. The Arkansas first team played less than one-third of Ihc game and Ihc third and fourth slrings look over in Ihe fourlh quarter, getting numerous scoring chances but fail- nig, lo cash in until Fullback Leon Campbell returned a kickoff 85 yards to score in Ihe lasl ten seconds. A series of penalties shortly before had set up TCU's second tally. After a tough first quarter at Austin, the Oklahoma Aggies' lost All-America Bob Fcnimorc when he suffered a recurrence of an injury received i n the Arkansas game. From there on Texas romped at will. .Failure lo take advantage of several, scoring chances cost the Southern Methodist University Mustangs a 7-0 defeat at the hands of Texas Tech at Dallas Saturday night. Tech, which only a week before had upset Texas A. & M. scored on a s'ory-book pass play in the fourth quarter. Rice s Owls had no trouble in smashing a weak Southwestern eleven, 48-0 at Houston Saturday night. ...Texas A. & M. batllcd favored Oklahoma University to a standstill until the last minute, when a field goal gave the Sooncrs a 10-7 decision al Norman. Arkansas gels a chance to strengthen its conference lead in a batllc with a rugged Baylor Boar machine at Fayellcville Saturday. On paper the Razorbacks should win, but Baylor has a reputation for upsets and had an open dale last week to rcsl for ils invasion of the Ozarks. This will be Ihc only conference game this week. Texas Irics its hands against Oklahoma at Dallas, and the Longhorns' goal will be to defeat the Sooncrs more decisively than did Army. Rice will tangle with Tulane's powerful outfit at New Orleans and Texas A. & M. will square off against strong LSU at Baton Rouge. Friday night games will pit TCU against Miami U. al Miami and SMU against Oklahoma A. & M. al Dallas. o Dallas Makes It Three Straight Over Crackers Dallas, Oct. 7 — (/[') — Atlanta's Crackers make possibly their lasl sland tonight in the batlle for the baseball championship of Dixie with Earl McGowan, the Southern Association's leading pitcher, {/i take the mound against Dallas' Hank Oana -ca {he fourth {.!..»a of Dallas made it three siraigm yesterday as the Texas League champs splurged for five runs in the eighlh lo break up a tight pitching duel between the Crackers Bill Aycrs and lall Tom Pullig. Tho Rebels won, 5-1, as a crowd of 11,088 turned out to gree Dallas' return to the home bailiwick. The three games thus far have drawn 23,596 and gross receipts of $31,945.85, of which $15,334.01 goes to the players. Pullig, in beating Atlanta with a seven-hit job, racked up his eighth straight pitching victory. Ayers was trying for his first Dixie series win and for seven innings he limited Dallas to two hits and not. a runner got as far as third base. Uefthander McGowan lost the second game of the scries lo Dallas, 3-0 at Atlanta. Oana, his right- handed opponent tonight, won the opener of the series at Atlanta 13-3. PILES Hurt Like Sin!

The big, genial 55-year old governor, who holds both .the Republican cjnd Democratic nomination to succeed himself in the Nov. 5 election, told this reporter: "I am nol a candidate. 1 am making no effort in lhat direction and I wish my friends would nol put me in the position of being a candidate." ^.B.ul .despite Iho gray-haired cx- iulivc'.s evident desire to remain in the background, California Republican leaders arc quietly booming Warren for what they believe, may bo a dsirkhorsc role al the parly's national convention two years from now.

In a strong note to the State Department, the Soviet embassy protested that Novikov was handled discourteously by customs officials at New York Friday in what it called an "unheard of diplomatic immunity." Undersecretary of State Dean Acheson promptly ordered an investigation. Customs Commissioner William R. Johnson said Novikov was •ax- tended "all the usual diplomatic courtesies" and that his baggage was passed without examination within 15 minutes aftcr.it reached officers at LaGuardia airport. Informed quarters here said the .Russian ambassador .. was within his rights in .insisting upon prompt and courteous clearance but a feeling persisted that perhaps the incident had been a bit magnified. Novikov was described as a stickier for diplomatic niceties. The Soviet note said Novikov was subjected to the same restrictions as other passengers witnout regard to his diplomatic immunity; telephoning New York; held for more than an hour until imnounccmcnt said posters announcing the termination of the works project for Saturday "had been erroneously" put the morning. Actually, up during the com- munique said, authorities .were employed. The crowd was in an ugly mood when it arrived at the palace for the third straight day, and its temper grew steadily uglier. The workmen, from the public works department, were due to be discharged Saturday. to Several in the crowd were heard ihout as the police moved upon "This is no better than fascism. o ,he signed certain froms; and that his luggage was held even after he limself was released. The Soviet embassy said it expected the State Department to investigate the incident immediately, bring those responsible to account, and prevent similar incidents in the jLUturc.

Customs Commissioner Johnson said the declaration Novikov was required to sign is the same one President Truman and former Prime Minister Winston Churchill sign when they enter the United States. • . Although Johnson said Novikov's luggage was cleared within 15 minutes, customs collector Harry M. Durning said Novikov was delayed while deputy collector telephoned Durning to determine whether the Russian Asbassador was required to sign. Durning said Novikov was told he did- not have, to sign but that •- '•• ' left after than an was prevented from the Soviet consiTl in he did so anyway, and delay of sligntly more hour. Another version came after health officials here who said their agents in New York did not pass Novikov through immediately because they had not been told he would be on the plane. Astronomers Get Set for Celestial Show By PAUL F. ELLIS United Press Science Writer Astronomers, both,' expert and amateur, packed up their cameras and portable telescopes today and headed for the open spaces in the country where they hope to see the celestial show of the century. They have calculated that the meteor shower from the orbit of the Giacobini-Zinncr comet will reach its maximum brilliance to-, night at about 9 p; m'.

Price Ceilings Removed on Some Rubber Items Washington, Oct. 9 — M 1 )— The OPA removed price lids today from rubber tires for lawn mowers, tiros bus lines rent on a mileage basis, and used bicycle tires. Ceilings still cover most passenger car and truck tires which remain on the scarce list. OPA said there is an adequate supply of tires .for lawnmowers and I for rent to bus lines, and used bi- l cycle tires arc rated as unimportant, to business and living cosls. Also freed because of adequalc .supplies arc prices on acetone, a chemical solvent, and chestnut ex- trad, used by tanners. Removed, as unimportant to living or business costs arc ceilings on: Photo finishing and printing materials; bathing shower caps; wooden tubs, buckets, kits and pails; casein glue; and miscellaneous chemical, drug and rubber items. Britain Is Rearranging Her Suez Defenses But Will Not Pull Out of Mediterranean By J. M. ROBERTS, JR. AP Foreign Affairs Analyst (Substituting for MacKenzie) Britain's "tentative" plan for consolidating her Middle Eastern defenses far south of the present Egypt- Palestine - Transjordan- Iraq line docs not imply that the lion is through ranging the Mcdi- lerrancan's shores. II is true that the British, often accused of holding these ancient lands in durance vile, arc rearranging their Suez defenses in an effort to clear their skirts in Eg; pi and elsewhere. Bui talk of mo' ing key administrative and supply bases to Kenya and Tanganyika nieans establishment, of defenses in depth, not withdrawal. And the big implication is that Africa will be developed as a primary base of supply. (As a side issue, it. is interesting lo note lhat the "proposed" plan was not announced, but came instead fficc irom an source' "authoritative war who apparently made himself available lo both domestic and foreign reporters in London. Just why this happened at this time would probably prove more interesting than the details of the plan ilsclf since, afler all, they appear from the military standpoint to be little more than pcucclime preparation Jor a possible repetition of what happened in the lasl war. The political implication?, as DeWitt MacKenzie pointed out here yesterday, arc lesion, involving the Palestine problem. Russia's posilion among \hc Arab slales which arc seeking an end lo British hegemony, Turkey and Greece vis-a-vis Russia, as well as Ihc dirccl national .interests of the individual Middle Eastern countries.) The British military program in East Africa urea actually began in 1942 aflcr Ihc Japanese made a pass at Ceylon which did considerable duinajjc und thoroughly fright- ils defenses, and when Rommel was knocking al the gales of Alexandria and Cairo. East Africa suddenly became a "rear area" for empire forces in both the Near and Far East. Alexandria was abandoned for the lime-boing. Haifa and Mombasa became important points of British naval concentration. First class air installations were strung out over Kenya and Tanganyika, the latter a former German territory under British mandate, lo lie in with the Amcri can-developed supply system to West Africa, Khartoom and Egypt Simultaneously with these mili tary moves the Brilish foreign office was working on ils plan of development for Uganda, Kenya, Ihe Sudan and Africa generally, a plan which now fils well inlo the piclurc of groat new administrative and suoply bases.

The astronomers were apprehensive about two things. One, that clouds will block their observation; and two, that the moon, which will be full tonight, may be too bright, It hud been expected that the comet's trail of>mcteors would produce a preview last night, h'-'.t the curtain raiser was a big disap- apoinlmcnl. Most of the nation's observatories reported that overcast skies prevented an observance, while those on the west coast complained that Ihc moon was too bright An eight-man team from Harvard observatory, however, ap- jlied a bit of modern science in an dtlcmpt to sec the starl of the nclcor shower. They went aloft n a U. S. coast guard plane, and cruised as far as.Portland, Me.. The Hying planelarium landed al 1:10 a.m. and Charles Fcdcrcr, member of the Harvard observa- ory staff in charge of the flight, 'aid the group saw several meteors. The parly tested methods of observation and said the flight was a success despite hazy skies. If the weather permits they will take take off at 6 p. m. tonight and remain aloft until the demonstration passes its peak. They i'ound il easier lo study the meteors with the naked eye than with telescopes or cameras. o Political Dynasty Leader of Chicago, Dies Chicago, Oct. 9 — (/F>— Michael (Hinky Dink) Konna, leader of a ward political dynasty founded bo- lore inc first Chicago World Fair in 1893, died today. The "Lilllc Fellow" of long remembered campaign battles was cither 88 or 91 years old; Henna's word and the records viricd.

Whether Britain is merely announcing something she began during the war. or whether she is ac- cepling a new conception of defense in an age of atomic anc aerial weapons, there is one fixct point about which the rest revolves. She is nol milking, nor permitting herself to be forced into, any change which opens a threat U her oil holdings in the Middle East. Those wells, refineries anc pipelines arc as vital to her r-s hci navy, which depends upon them No matter what political consider ations intervene, only overwhelm ing force will ever separate he» from them.

Italy, Slav Boundary Is Confirmed Paris, Oct. 9 — (UPl—-Tho peace conference loday confirmed the Big Four compromise boundary line between Italy and Yugoslavia, ignoring Yugoslavia's threat to refuse to sign the Italian treaty unless the frontier were drawn to its specifications. The boundary vote came at the outset of the article by article balloting on the 80 sections of the Italian treaty. The compromise frontier was adopted on a roll call vote, 14 to 5, with two abstentions. Russia clung to its compromise Big Four agreement and voted for the line originally proposed by France, tbcr members of Ihe Soviet bloc voted against it. Belgium and lithiopia abstained. Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov of Russia told the conference before the voting began that the cast- west division among the nations was becoming absurd. He suggested compromises on "certain outstanding questions," but made it plain that he was not ready to yield on Trieste. "It is very important to find compromises on certain questions here, as we have been able to find on many occasions since we slart- ed to examine these problems," Molotov said. "Bringing about such an accord is possible because we all recognize that we all want democratic peace, and lhat we do not want lo impose the will of certain countries on others, thcrwisc nothing good will come from our dclibcra- lions."
