FAY Washington, Oct. 16 —W)— The United States has more super-size bombers today than when the war ended. . • The Army Air Forces, striving to keep its long-range striking arm in readiness even chough demobilization has made deep inroads elsewhere, now .counts slightly -. 3,11'ri "verv heavy bombardment" type . aircraft. This ijuinuer compares with 2,865 oh hand when hostilities ended in nugUSt 1945. . . With the exception of two experimental airplanes—the B-36 and the B-35 "Flying Wing", —all -the present force of ,VHBS are B-29s or B-29 modifications. AAF officials emphasize, however, that not all the 3,000 -.plus planes make up. the VHB operating force. Only part of the total actually are being flown; the remainder constitute reserve or spare aircraft, .Deliveries of. B.-29 types still are being made -fo the AAF, although in minor numbers. While preserving .and slowly expanding its fleet of aircraft capable of carrying atomic bombs thousands of miles, the AAF has disposed of nearly 12,000 of its winged workhorses of World War II; the B-17s and B-24s. At the wartime peak, the ai> forces had 12,919 "heavy bombers" of these types. Sixteen monms later—on last August 31 — it had only 961 left. Except in the relatively few instances where the bombers could not be flown from storage fields and hence were scrappea on the spot for parts, the B-17s and B-24s were declared excess and turned over to the War Assets Administration. WAA sold most of them for scrap. Those still retained by the AAF are being used for personnel cargo carrying purposes and ior experimental work. In the latter category, a few B-17s have been converted into "drone" and drone control airplanes. When such new types as the B-36 and B-35 and the more distantly projected jet-propelled VHBs / get into production, the B-29s will move into the osolescent stage along with the B,17s and B-24s. o Buenos Aires' ranks sixth iri size of the cities of the world.

Little Rock, Oct. 16 —(/P)—There is a growing possibility that the 1947 legislature will be asked •— with at least the tacit support of the state's constitutional officers— to change the method of selecting county election commissions. Some members of the state election board, the constitutional officers, frankly are convinced that [he patronage involved isn't worth Ihe "heat and pressure" resulting '.torn the board's rejection of pleas jy ex-servicemen's political groups 3d. 5 for representation on some county boards. Two say, oft' the record, there are less explosive ways of repaying political favors Back in the counties. Before departing on a two weeks hunting trip just three days after the board's meeting. Governor Laney Voiced "doubt" that the present system of selecting the county' commissions is the best. He said that • the board as now constituted always probably would be made up of nominees for high office. He did not venture a suggestion of how the boards should bo changed. .Most other members of the board have been frugal with their "on" the "record" comments about what the board did, how it should be corts'tituted elc. However, one of them — Treasurer J. Vance Clayton — candidly says he wants no part of another session so fraught with political repercussions as the Oct'. 5 meeting. And, Clayton has a concrete suggestion for a change in the selection system. He has discussed it with at 'least three other board members this week. This is it: The legislature would repeal all acts now governing county election boards and adopt legislation authorizing the county conventions (or regular party committees) of the Democrats and Republicans to name the county boards, giving the Democrats two members and the Republicans one. This would keep the selection of the county boards at the county levels. However, it would freeze out' independent or revolting factions by leaving the membership solely to the two parties. Formerly the state election board was composed of the governor, attorney general and secretary of state. After several years of agitation by some of the other constitutional officers —none of whom are now incumbent, the 1936 legislature enlarged the board to include all seven of the officers. Fights have resulted biennially over composition of the oard in Garland county where the influ- ince of Mayor Leo P. McLaughlin has been paramount in the past. Dccasional scraps developed oe- 'bre the board over factional disputes in other counties — particularly in some of the'counties where Republicans have matched Democrats vote for vote in several elections. McJLatighlin's friends on the board have taken care of his organization in Garland county con- sistetly, though closely some times. The state officials safely could .resolve the upper state couty fights for the Democrats. But, no previous commission has been faced with the problems like those arising over the claims of insurgent GI's and their factional compatriots for representation on' county commissions. County commissions —composed of two members of the majority party and one of the minority (Ihe statute does not designate Democrats or Republicans) name the judges and clerks in each precinct. Candidates prefer "friendly," ra- :her than non-partisan or "un- Iriendly," judges and clerks. That :s why thev apply so much heat to the election board. , What the board-did .Oct. 5 waq secret. No member will say on or off the record how any other mem- er — or himself, for that matter —voted in all .instances. But near,y all agree that rejections of GI's in all counties were not unanimous. The effect is the same as though it had been unanimous and the editorial and verbal criticism resulting is exactly what the state oard members don't want to go through again. Legion Seeking Lowdown on Housing Shortage Little Rock, Oct. 16 —(/P)— A com mittee to obtain "the real lowdown on the veterans housing situation in Arkansas" was appointed :oday by J. Wesley Sampler of Rogers, state commander of 'the American Legion. The Legion 'committee will invite building contractors, engin- srs, material dealers and "any- oody else interested in housing" from all sections of the stale lo discuss Ihe problem al Liltle Rock during Ihe next two weeks, Samper said. W. W. Anderson, Monticello, was named chairman of the committee. Other members are: Jack V. Clark, Texarkana; A. L. James, Wynne; R. Redding Stevenson, Little Rock; W. S. Allen, Litlle Rock, and C. R. Bowers, Helena.

Commission house liquidation accounted for the major part of the selling along with some hedge selling against Ihe new crop. The reaction was Ihe sharpest since last July when, there was question of continuance of the price control law. Some traders liquidated on the theory that cotlon prices were vulnerable.

Molotov Boards Liner for England Aoard the Queen Elizabeth, Oct. Hi —(/Pi —Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov boarded Britain's $24,000,000 gem of the sea, tlje 33,)73-ton Queen Elizabeth, two hours jet'ore sailing lime at Southampton :oday and \Vent straight to his satin luxury suite. In a hasty corridor interview, the smiling Soviet statesman said he .vas "happy to be aboard this great ship." Despite the death of Sir Percy 3;ttes, chairman of the Cunard White Star Line, which operates he ship, all (lags were kept at full staff for the sailing. "I think Sir Percy would want it hat way," explained Commodore Sir James Bissct, the Elizabeth's commander. Molotov, his deputy, Andrei Vish- nsky; Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmilri Manuilsky and their interpreter stepped aboard at 11:15 .1. m. and joined notables in the ong delayed maiden voyage of the iner as a commercial vessel. "Do you go to America with »ood hopes?" Molotov was asked. "As : always," he replied. He said he was grateful to Britain for making the cruiser Dido available for his trip from France o Southampton but' explained hr ook a .Russian army plane instead jecause he had to work late in ?aris last night. , "I hope our action will not be misunderstood," he said, "because we are very grateful indeed to the British government .for thoir readiness to put a ship of the Royal avy at our disposal." Molotov said that after the United Stations' meeting in New York he loped to "complete the unfinished work" of the Paris peace conference, which ended his deliberations yesterday. (Secretary of State Byrnes is flying home) The Soviet diplomat and his par,y drove from the airport to the lock in nine limousines, Hanked by three more cars full of special guards. Scotland Yark operative.; and uniformed policemen guarded the docks. Molotov's suite of two bedrooms and a sitting room is tyoical of the sleekness of the refitted ship. The Deds are covered with satin green in one room and turquoise in the other. The baths are clone in green and turquois tile. The queen, inaugurating Britain's bid for postwar supremacy in Atlantic luxury traffic, left at 2 p. m. (8 a. m. CST) with throe proud records: 1. She is the largest craft ever floated. 2. She entered peacetime duty after having ferried 811,324, Allied troops across 492,635 m'iles of world wide ocean war zones. ;>. Sue is prooably the only major ship in history to pay her construction costs before entering the serv- i'-p : fir- which she was built—the "plush" passenger trade between New. VOI-K.and England. Her wartime earnings reputedly have put her already in the financial black—and $5,000,000 was spent to refurbish her. Among her 2,300 passengers a roster of Britain's aristocrats that reads like a roll call from Burke's peerage. Cotton Picking Champ Enters Arkansas College Jonesboro, Oct. 16 —(UP)— A world's champion cotton picker '• come to the campus of Arkansas State College in Jonesboro. Harold E. Mason of Senath, Mo., winner of the national coi.ton picking contest in Blylheville in 1940, today was officially enrolled in the school. Mason was only 15 years old when he walked away with top honors and prize money in the contest. His wife and 3-ycar-old son are living with him in a trailer on the A-S-C campus. Goering Continued fium Pago One Chiang Makes 8 Proposals for Ending Trouble Nanking, ct. 16 —(/P) —Chiang Kai-shek in one of his rare public stalemenls today set forth eight proposals for ending the civil war between his Central Government troops and the Chinese Communists. "The present political and military situation in this country must not be allowed to continue and intensify ihe sufferings of the people," said the geeralissimo, recently re-elected by a standing committee of the uomintang (Government party) as president of China until a new constitulion can be drafted. cried out for "an understanding between the easl and wesl" and a desire for "peace lo the world". Ernsz; Kaltenbrunner's dueling scars shone red on his face. Hans Frank' asked "God to accept me in mercy." Wilhelm Frick stumbled up the steps. Wpe-like Fritz Sauckel fied bravely. Jodl said "I salute you, my Germany." Seyss- Inquarl said he hoped "peace and underslanding will be realized among the nations." Goering, pudgy No. 2 man of a Fascist regime intended by Adolf Hitler to last 1,000 years, twitched out his life in a prison cell only a few hours before his condemned henchmen plunged through the banging traps of Iwo gallows in a grimy building 35 yards away. By his manner of dying, Goering — flamboyant to the last — nol only took the last spotlighl away from his colleagues bul created- a breathtaking mystery which had army intelligence officers laboring in an effort lo determine how he got, concealed and took the poison. The 10 who died on the gallows — as directed by the internalional mililary Iribunal which convicled them two weeks ago of war crimes, crimes against the peace and crimes against humanity—went to their deaths withoul collapsing and mouthing "God save Germany" final declarations. Joachim Von Ribbentrop , Hitler's foreign minister, «who replaced Goering as the first man to climb the 13 steps to doom, dropped 1 through the trap at 1:14 a. rn. (7:14 p. m. Tuesday EST) An hour and 43 minutes laler, when Arthur Seyss-Inquart, Nazi gauleiler of Ihe Nelherlands, was pronounced dead, il was all over. Those who died in between, with Master Sergeant John C. Wood of the U. S. Army — who has presided at 233 executions —springing the trap in some cases, were : Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel, Ernst Kaltenbrunner. head of the Nazi security police: Alfred Hosenboi'R, Nazi party philosopher; Hans Frank, governor general of Poland; Wilhelm Frick, "protector" of Bohemia and Moravia; Julius Streicher, the Jew baiter; Fritz Sauckel, the slave labor boss; and Col. Gen. Alfred Jodl. Correspondents who witnessed '.he executions said they did /lot pee- any coffins but could hear them JOIIIK carried out. Several largo vans dashed out of the prison yard shortly before daylight, a guard reported, and drove toward Furth, n suburb north of Nuernberg .vhere the army has two large aii fields. After the 10 had been hanged, Goering's corpse was brought into the execution chamber i'or symbolical execution of the tribunal's sentence. Kingsbury Smith, representing the combined American press and one of only eight correspondents permitted to enter the brightly lighted gymnasium in the jail yarr ; '.vhere the gallows stood, said Seyss-lniiuhrt's body still was dan- illing from the noose when officers ordered the blanket covering Onering's body removed. The former rcichsmarshal and luttwaffe commander lay on a strelcher attired in-black pajamas and a blue shirt open to expose his chest. Smith said his face bore an agonized expression and that his half was rumpled. Among the witnesses was Dr. Wilhelm Hocsncr, minister president of Bavaria. When the last body had been cul clown, Col. B. C. Andrus, prison commandant, emerged with the first news to the world that Goering had taken his own life. "Goering was not hanged," Andrus announced, "he committed suicide at 10:45 p. m. (4:45 p. in. EST Tuesday)'last night by taking cyanide of potassium. "He was discovered at once by Ihe sentinel who watched and heard him make an odd noise and twitch.-The sentinel called the doctor and chaplain who were in the corridor a who found him dying. "There were pieces of glass in Kis mouth and an odor of cyanide of potassium on his breath. "Goering's hands did not go beneath the blankets and were :iot observed lo go lo his mouth. An investigation is now going on 10 learn how he could c.oiiceal the poison when he was "subject io daily and rigorous searches, bovn of his clothes and his person. The cyanide was contained in a small cartridge case similar 10 vhosc found before on other Nazis and like the one found on him a year ago last May at Mondorf prison. At that time it was hidden in a can of rnescafe." French Correspondent Louis de Roche said in his account that an opened envelope was found on Goering's corpse. It * contained three messages written in pencil, one of which was addressed to Col. Andrus. The poison Goering took was contained in a vial concealed inside a copper tube made of -an old cartridge. Goering never heard his death sentence road lo him as did Ihe others shortly before they died. Col. Andrus was on his way to Goering's cell when the last act of Goerini>'s life was taking place inside the jail. Andrus continued about his grim task, however, completing ,the reading of the conviction and sentence to each man at 11:45 p.' m. " ; A little while later the march lo the gallows began. In Ihe gymnasium, whore only lasl Saturday guards had played a basketball game, stood three scaffolds, only two of which were used. Arthur Gaeilh, representing tne combined American radio networks, said each scaffold had the customery 13 steps to the top and each rope the customary 13 coils, The executions were carried out .with machine-like precision. While one man hung from one gallows— his body concealed inside the structure of'the scaffold —another man was brought in. Every one of the 10 men approached death bravely once he entered the room and saw the grim appurtenances of Ihe hangmen. Sauckel refused to dress at first and screamed at the top of 'his voice when soldiers handcuffed him . The only one to create a scene nl the scaffold was Streicher who defiantly shouted his last "Heil Hitler" and then snarled at an American officer: "The Bolsheviks will hang you one day." He also was the only one to speak after the black hood concealed his face, murmuring: "Adele, my dear wife." After his body dropped through the trap the correspondent-witnesses clearly heard a groan :-'rom ;he interior ol the scaffold. The only one of the 10 who made no lasl minute statement was Rosenberg. Asked if he desired to make any final declaration, Rosenberg tillered only the monosyllable: "No." Then he died. Ribbenlrop Ihe man who ongine- ered the Nazi-Russian pact which touched off World War JI. uttered his final words in distinct, unfaltering Uerman. "God save Germany," he said. "My last wish is that Germany realize its entity and that an understanding be reached between the east and the wesl. I wish peace to the world." Keitel entered the chamber six minutes laler and mounted the scaffold as though he were climbing a stand to review his Iroops. He peered over Ihe crowd wilh iron - jawed Prussian hauteur. Called upon for his lasl words hesaid: "I call on God Almighly to have rnercy on Ihe German people. More than tsvo million German soldiers went to their deaths for the Fatherland before me. I follow now my sons." (He lost two sons in ihe war.) Then he raised his voice and shouted: "All for Germany." Then, with the bodies of Ribben- trop and Keitel dangling in death, an American colonel directing ihe execulions asked the 'American general representing the U. ;3. on the Allied Control Council's commission if those present could smoke. An affirmative answer brought cigarettes inlo the hands of almost everyone of the 30-odd persons in Ihe room, Smith reported. Officers and soldiers paced about nervously or spoke to each other in hushed voices as correspondents scribbled their hurried notes. An American and a Russian doctor, carrying stethoscopes, disappeared beneath the one curtained side of the first scaffold and emerged very shortly afterward to speak to the American colonel. The colonel turned, snapped to attention, and informed the witnesses: • "The man (.Ribbentrop) is dead." The executioner, sergeant, climbed up Ihe gallowr. and cut the rope with a large, commando- type knife, as other soldiers lowf ciod the body to a stretcher HIK) quickly carried II behind a curtain at the rear of the room. ' "Cigarettes out, please, gentlemen," said the colonel, who then turned and called "okay." The executions proceeded steadily, inexorably. Witnesses described Ihe IflSt 'fnO- menl of the other men as follows: KnUenbrimnor, dueling scars on his check.? shining blood reef in the glaring !ig)it, declared:. "J have loved my German people iind fny Fatherland with a warm heart. I have,done my duty by the laws of my people and I am sorry my people-were led this lime by men who, were not soldiers and that crimes were committed of which I hod no knowledge." His last words , were a German phrase meaning: "Germany, good luck."

End to Control Continued from Page One sell (D-Gai told a reporter he has no doubt that several bills will be inlvodm'ed f?m-l« in 'he new congress to abolish OPA. Whether these will be seriously pressed, he commented, depends upon the <'i;eori with which controls are lifted by the administration. Carroll Keece. chairman of the Republican National Committee, said last night Ihat if the administration had "listened to the advice of the Republican members of congress instead of the advice of the radical fringe," the meat crisis would not have developed and "would never have become a political isFtie."

Their guesses on future prices varied, but they pointed out that packers are paying record prices for livestock moving into the nation's stockyards. George Dressier, executive sec* retary of the National Assoeinttoiw 1 ' of Retail Meat Dealers, said that prices probably would be about 25 pei" cent higher at first. He predicted that at least three out of five butcher shops would have meat within, two weeks and that prices would be unstable for a while. Meat returned to some shops in the metropolitan New York, urea, priced generally at from 10 to 20 cenls over former OPA ceilings. Some neighborhood market:) sold prime beef at $1 a pound and loii* lamb chops at 98 cents. In a sample of price increases, several New York stores sold prime ribs of beef at 01 cents, 17 cents over the old ceiling.

Children Need Calcium Calcium is needed in the largest amounts by pregnant and nursing women and by growing children. Good sources of calcium in the diet are good quality pasteurized milk, cheese, green leafy vegetables beans and peas.

Page Tlire« DOROTHY DIX Unwanted Bride-to-Be DEAR MISS DIX: I am a bachelor 39 years old, with my own business, prosperous, active in fraternal, political and municipal organizations. My girl friend is 33 years of age and comes from a prominent family. We have known each other for the past five years and became engaged about a yeaf ago. Now she desires to set a wedding date and I cannot bring myself to do it because I do not love her and look upon being married to her with horror. I am not happy in her company and have tried in every way I can to get her to break off the engagement, but she will not do it because she loves me. I do not want to hurt her and I am at my wits' end to know how to conclude this affair. What is your advice? haps seeing him so sadly wounded will revive your old love for him and you will not want to break up your home and deprive your children of a father's love and care. Or, perhaps, his affection for you may have waned, for many a man's heart suffers a sea change in a long separation from his wife and he is glad to be free of a marriage that he entered into in his early youlh. It is certainly a great affliction for a man to lose a leg, but in these days of marvelous surgery and clever mechanical appliance it does not destroy his ability to lead a useful and successful life.

When these glands produce loo much paralhormone as a result of a growth (adcnomal in One of them, the extra secretion lakes the calcium from the bones, leaving' thorn thin, fibrous structures which fracture easily. This condition is treated by removing the enlarged gland from Ihe neck. Calcium is also used by the body in the clotting of the blood. Blood clotting is a complicated process in which many elements participate. A deficiency of any of the required substances may result in a tendency toward he'mmor- rhagc. < ) '*|^|H Phosphorous is closely related lo calcium, and mosl of Ihe calcium and Ihe phosphorous in the body arc together. For a long lime people have taken medicines containing hypophos- philcs as a Ionic for their nerves, simply because phosphorous is found in large amounts in the brain and spinal cord. The effect of hypophosphitcs is psychological, however; in cases of nervous exhaustion there is .no evidence of I organic disease in the nervous sys- I tern. Fish No Brain Aid The idea that fish is a brain food grow out of the same concept. While fish is an important item in the diet, it does not help people who arc suffering with disease of the brain and spinal cord. Vitamins A an C assist in the development of cartilage, vitamins C and D assist in the formation of dentine in the teeth, and thiamin is necessary for the development of bones in Ihe Ions direction. Secretions of the pituilary and thyroid glands also aid in bone formation. The well - balanced general diet permits the body to solve this problem. One should nol rely on extra doses of calcium alone. ANSWER: No girl is so stupid as not to know whether the man she is engaged to loves her or not, so if your fiancee insists upon marrying you in spite of your coldness and your putting off the wedding day, it is not because she is so enamoured of you, but because you are a desirable catch, and she is determined not to let a good thing get away from her.

But you will have to gather up your courage to speak plainly to the girl and tell her in no uncertain terms that you not only do not want to marry her, but you do not intend to do il. If you dilly - dally-about it and use weasel words, the first thing you know you will be saying "yes" at the altar and she will have gotlcn I you.

There's no real meat shortage. There's plenty of cattle, but the catlle were held back from slaughter until price controls were ended. This holding back of cattle was made clear by the beef industry's OPA advisory committee, a committee set up to deal with the government. R. G. Haynie. chairman of the committee, told reporters here last week that plenty of cattle were ready for market if controls were ended. The committee itself asked the government to lift controls. It said there was no shortage of cattle. This holding back of cattle put a squeeze on the government.. The government gave in. The squeeze came at a critical time for President Truman and his Democratic administration. The longer the meat shortage, the more impatient the American people became. The congressional elections are less than three weeks away. From the looks of things now, it will be a nip-and-luck race between Democrats-and Republicans to see which Arkansas News Items Little Rock.

His appeal was made in a statement announcing ho had approved an OPA order -carrying out President Truman's order that price controls be lifted from livestock, meats and other livestock products. Anderson's statement said: "In my judgment the action taken today is consistent with purposes of the (price control) act in that it will promote the earliest practical balance between production and demand for livestock products and facilitate a successful transition of the livestock industry to a sound peacetime basis. "In order for the boef cattle industry to be in a sound condition and able to provide a continuous supply of beef to meet consumers' demands, it is essential that the held off lifting controls on meat until after the November elections? That raises some questions which politicians and voters can decide for themselves: 1. By waiting until after the elections would we have done any more than just make the people go without meat that much longer? 2. Or would such a delay, have so angered voters that they'd have turned against the Democrats in the elections? Some of his own Democratic leaders had urged the president to do something about the shortage quickly. Protests were increasing daily. But the meat squeeze got Mr. Truman and some of his top lieu- enants backed into such a corner .hat they now reverse what they said less than a month ago.

Chiang Ready to Make Concessions to Communists Nanking, Ocl. 15 — (UP) •— Chiang Kai-shek's Kuominlang government reportedly was ready today to make certain concessions lo the Communists in an effort to assure peace in China. A spokesman for "third parly" groups attempting last-mimuo me- cliiition said the government had ussincd him Ihat il would grant certain concessions, but that "cor- lain conditions would be attached." Details were not available. Meanwhile, the throe Nationalist coltimiis which were converging on Kalgan were 'reported to have met ul Hsinhwaytian, between Peipiug and Kalgan. A government spokesman said organized Communist resistance had collapsed along the entire eastern section of the Peiping-Sui- yuan railway as a result of the juncture. The Communists have admitted the loss of Kalgan, their second largest city, but a dispatch from Communist headquarters at Yenan said the loss was "only temper- :ivv " constant agitation for the removal of price ceilings and when announcement was made that a decontrol petition would be filed at (he very time that the run of grass- fed .should be at its highest. "During the early years of the war cattle numbers were increasing and a high level of 82,400.000 head was reached on Jan. 1, 944. This was considerably in excess ot a desirable number'in relation to the feeding capacity or outrange and pastures. Extended mar- ketings and slaughter brought aboul desirable increases :iu meat supplies and reductions in cattle numbers in 1044 and 1945 so that at the beginning of 1946 catlle numbers were only 79,aOO,'JOO. This included 40,900,000 beef cattle. Our caltle slaughter goal for 1946, recognizing both the need for meat and desirable caltle numbers in relation to grazing capacity and feed supplies, called for a further reduction in the number of beef catlle retained on the :"arms and ranges. However, the disruption of marketings and slaughter in recent months has resulted in a decrease in meat production and an increase rather than the desire in the number of beef cattle kept farms and ranges." on the Conway, Oc;. 16 — (/P)— Hendrix college will be the site of the annual exhibition of Arkansas art Frank Govan, associate professor of art, announced today. .Deadline tor entries ts Nov 20 The exhibition will include oil paintings, water colors, paslels, sculpture and graphic arts.
