The increases are effective Oct. 14. Only the two top grades—choice and good—are affected. OPA announced at the same time that ceilings on all other meats — beef pork, lamb, etc. — have been recalculated according to store groups. Posters announcing these new prices will appear in stores on Oct. 14. The recalculations will mean occasional increases of a cent or two rind some decreases of a like amount on other cuts, OPA said. These adjustments and the veal increase have little to do with the general meat crisis. OPA said the veal boost was authorized to prevent hardship to slaughterers who kill a large per- 1 centage of calves in comparison with the volume of full grown cattle. Present market prices for live calves give veal slaughterers profit margins that .arc greatly below returns for beef. SUNDAY"- MONDAY - TUESDAY ml* I \1 T^54*bBSv C&SH ~? &$&& .FeatureUes t .

The Ponies, however, have seen unable to produce more than one touchdown in two tilts and will be the underdogs.

Presley of Texarkana, Tex., telephoned Brow- arcl County Sheriff Walter Clark here last night that two sets of double murders, almost identical to the cruel Dania beach slaying of an athlete mid his waitress-sweetheart, had occurred in Texarkana early this year.

White House Also Having Meat Trouble By MERRIMAN SMITH Washington, Oct. 11 —(UP) — Jnless President 'juutnan does something about the meat situn- ion soon, the White House social season may be a caloric flop. The tooth paste ads say lo avoid soft foods. But the .ambassadors ind cabinet members and their •martly gowned ladies who dine vilh the Trumans this winter won't have a chance. They're trapped. As the White House cooks braced hcmselves for the .first series of state dinners and receptions since r"earl Harbor, the Desl they could iope for on their customarily lav- sh menus was chicken, turkey or fish. Unless, of course ,thc president waves a magic wand and meat lecomcs available before the social season begins in November. For obvious reasons of equal sacrifice, the White House could not .and would not serve lavish •neat courses when the shelves of '.he nation's butchers arc as bare as Mother Hubbard's cupboard. The White House is having trouble like virtually every other household in America in getting moat. Not that the president couldn't roar and demand a good, red beefsteak and get it. But he doesn't want to play that way. The tedium ot a fish or fowl diet can be relieved somewhat if the meat shortage continues into the social season. This probably -will be done through expert cooking and luxurious variations into such related items as capon and pheasant. .tsut almost any :ioou, even wcin- ers; and they're hard to get, too, would seem :Car more sumptuous than usual when served on the lavish, formal gold dinner service of tne ,W,hite House. The Jormal White House .social season opens on Nov. 2G with the first of two diplomatic dinners. Then follow 10 dinners and-or receptions for the diplomats, members of the cabinet, the supreme court! agency heads and leaders of the Congress, army and navy. The formal season -ends on Fob. 18 with the congressional reception. Mr, Truman was asked at his news ^conference yesterday if the return" of the social season meant the return ot white tie and tails— de rigueur for all male guests at formal White House affairs before the war. Because formal clothes were .so scarce, the president said the Dania, Fin., Oct. 11. The besl clue to dale in [he double slaying of a boy and his girl on mponlil Dania beach Tuesday midnight was struck :?rom the records today. Capt. James O. Barker, ballistic expert of the Miami police department, reported that a shelf casing found on ihc beach was iiol fired from a pislol taken from ti suspect held in Hollywood, Fla. Up lo lhat time he had oeen con sidered the most likely suspect. Hollywood police said the mar would be held for more investiga tion, on the theory lhal the she! casing found in ihc long, -tedious, job of sifting tons of sand, migh actually have had nothing io do with the murders. The pistol, <i .32 nuotomalic, was taken from the automobile of Detroit, Mich., man who was pick ed up in Hollywood, Fla., ycstcr clay afternoon. The man was hclc for investigation, and had nol beci questioned yet today. Another suspect, a hitchhiker w;tp also arrester! in Hollywood bu officers withheld any hint of hi identity.

Miss Eidridge was not attacked. She and Hogan were Killed each by one shot and their bodies lett on the beach still littered with hurricane debris. Ballistics reports on 'She Texas cases are being sent to Barker at Miami. Deputies continued sifting the sands of the beach this morning, hoping for tiic other shell casing or the bullet which went through young Hngan's body. They already have the pellet recovered from Miss Eldriclge's brain, and Barker indicated it may have come irom the Detroit man's pistol.

Memphis, Tcnn., Oct. 10 —(/P)— The federal government's failure to accept previous bids on construction on the Memphis-Arkansas bridge spanning the Mississippi river here has been assailed bitterly by Shelby county political leader E. H. Crump. The bridge .., __ _.. Crump is chairman, opened new bids yesterday and the offers were than those rejected several months approximalely 30 percent higher than those rejected several months ago. "They (the federal public roads administration) had good bids last summer which they should have accepted," Crump said. "And they had a good bid last November on the superstructure which they declined to accept, x x x in my opinion they are acting like a lot of amateurs." Bids received yesterday were on construction of approach piers. L.OW bidder was the Merrill, Chap- nan and Scotl Corp., New York with a bid of $747,104. This exceed ed by $177,74 ii low bid received several monlhs ago from anothei construction company. Crump estimated the delay would cost "from $750,000 to $1,000,000 now." There was no indication what action Iho public roads administration might take on the current bids.

It was a clay when Ihe defeated Nazi leaders would be brought to the bnr of justice for trial by international tribunal representing outrag- •\'fl humanity. '•''That, it seemed, would be the great moment of vindication in world history. Actually, the Nctirn- bcrg war crimes trial was somewhat impressive; The arch criminal Hitler was not there. And what promised to be the most spectacular "courtroom drama" ot all time assumed a ponderous pace as the court ground and .sifted a great grist of evidence for more than 10 months. There were flashes of drama, lo be sure. But gradually the trial , -'jppcd back in the paper from l^age One, and many of its reporters slipped away to fresher assignments. Even the thousands of crimes of Nazidom, when cataloged and recounted in the Palace of Justice, benumbed the mind by their sheer massive weight. Perhaps, too, we thought of the defendants loo much as the rag-tag mob that they were as they sat in the dock. The contrast between this pallid, haggard rabble and their former strutting, overdressed arrogance could not be overlooked or discounted.

The physical exislance of a criminal, even of such criminals as these, is of little ultimate importance. Bcnito Mussilini and Adolf Hitler died violently in the midst of such violence as thcr passing was only of rmmcntary concern. The passing ot the Ncurnbcrg crimi nals will be of similarly small im portancc. It cannot expiate a thousandth of their crimes. The slaughtered Nazi victims will be just as dead. The devastation of the Nazi war will be just as ruinous/ •'?Yct because these men shall die, the world is a different and better place.

Outside paraded the picket lines for 5,000 striking AFL waiters, waitresses, chambermaids, elevator operators, telephone girls, porters, bellhops, cooks, kitchen, workers and bartenders. Inside upwards of 10,000 guests made their own bods, carried their own bags and wailed for non-striking white collar help to run an occasional elevator. If they got hungry, they arc out. The strike began late yesterday after a breakdown of negotiations for new union contracts to replace those which expired Sept. 30. The unions asked wage increases of 15 cents an hour for employes who don't get tips and 10 cents an hour for those who do.. The hotel association representing the 18 whose contracts had expired, offered 5 cent and 2 1-2 cent hourly increases. A government conciliator persuaded the unions lo compromise at U and 4 cents, but the hotels declined, asserting it would add $1,000,000 a year to operating costs.

That question is due to come up. perhaps explosively, 'before the U.N General Assembly of 51 nations in September. It will be brought up by the dramatic Hervcrt V.

On all vo.tes to take important action 'in the security council, the Big Five — the U.' S., the United Kingdom, Russia, France and China — must agree. If one of them votes "No" there can be no action Russia has voted "No" severa times already, to the obvious ir ritnltnn nf Athnr • nations. : 26 Escape in , • '. . • * Two Plane Crashes By ROGER D.

Gen. Walter B. Smith told the peace conference today that the United States was ready to back the transfer of some Magyar-populated " areas of Czechoslovakia to defeat-.; ed Hungary if necessary. > Smith, the U. • S. ambassador to ' Russia, said the United Slates would support Czechoslovakia's compromise ^proposal to transfer / ' 200,000 Magyars, from Czech tcrri- • tory to Hungary through a bilateral agreement. "Every effort should be made," < Gen. .Smith' declared, "through minor territorial, changes if necessary,' to reduce to the minimum' the number of people forced c -to ' leave their ancestral homes" under, * such an agreement. Smith's statement was sandwiched between a siring of-Slav speeches which opened plenary, session,debate, on thd peace pact for Hungary — the fourth of iivc treaties to be. considered. Slav delegates urged Hungary to join more solidly with the Slav-Danubian group of states. The United States insisted that any transfer of Hungarians from Czechoslovakia be voluntary arid by: bilateral agreement, Smith'said, and'would be watching; to see that it was carried out with "restraint." "For humanitarian reasons we are unable" to look with favor upon inserting in a treaty of peace the principle of forced transfer of populations by unilateral action," he said, adding that•:he' hoped the method of bilaterial negotiation would be used in dealing with some other disagreements, between Hungary and Romania •,— which has been awarded heavily Magyar-populated northern Transylvania.

Of this Senator Van- denbcrg said: "U is historically clear lhal Danubian commerce cannot pros- proval— and approval must unanimous in order to stick. be If Russia vetoes the Dnnubian clause, out it goes. U. S. Senator Arthur H.

Both Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov and Edvard Kardelj of Yugoslavia a-ejeclcd the urgurm;nln of Senator Vandenberg and British Foreign Minister Bevin with strong words.

At San Francisco Russia insisted on the veto. The U. S,, U. K.,China and France supported Ihc idea, but it was never known just how enthusiastically the four went a- lo.ng. The conference was run on ihc thesis that the five big nations must agree or there wquld be no world organization. U. S. Hints a Change Now the U. S., whose power has to be reckoned with, seems ready to apply the knife. The two steps il has taken are these: 1— It insists there must be veto on the bo.ard which will con- Irol use of atomic energy. Here the U. S. has heavy debate advantage — it has the bomb. 2. — The U. S. took a line at the Paris meeting of the foreign ministers which can throw the final decision on Italy's African colonies into the general assembly, where action would lake only a lwo-thirds> vole and no vclo permitted.

Only small craft at present can make the full course, but larger ships navigate the lower reaches of both rivers. A huge amount of commerce moves over the Danube and it is an integral part of the economic life of th-Jt part of Europe. But it is more than that, for in time of war il provides a strategic water route for military operations. During botli world wars there were great troop movemeuts in thai threalre, and heavy fighlins. The Danube lias been tinged with the crimson of an.iny other conflicts through Uie centuries. An intnrnalional Danube Navigation Commission was established in 13(i and tho navigation of the river was declared free to all nations. Barring the duration of tho first wo/ld war the river remained open until Gemany withdrew irom the commission in 1930 and later took complete control throuijh dominatio of central Europe.

Russia Holds Trump If ihe general assembly votes lo amend or to kill the veto, the debate itself could run inlo the veto. To write amendments, two- thirds ct the assembly of 51 nations must vote "Yes," including all the Big Five. That could mean that Russia, the champion of vclo, could vote "No", and the whole argument would be out the window.
