Registrations for Elections Show Increase Washington, Oct. 21 — (UP) — Registrations for the Nov. 5 congressional elections have reached a total nearly 1,250,000 higher than in the last off-year electoin in 1942, according to a United Press survey of 26 representative cities. The poll showed that actual and estimated registrations in the cities now total 12,211,767 as compared with 10,975,598 four years ago. In the past, big city turnouts have usually benefited the Democrats, and Democratic leaders arc hailing this sear's registration ns proof they are stronger than ever. Kepubhcans contend it is a sign of growing resentment against the Truman administration. Cities included in the poll were Omaha, Indianapolis, Dos Moinos, Philadelphia, Portland, Ore., Salt Lake City, Albany, Syracuse, Buffalo, St. Louis, Kansas City, Boston, Providence , Fort Wayne Cleveland, Chicago, San Francisco Los Angeles, Oakland-Berkley Cai., Detroit, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Phoenix, Ariz., St. Paul and New York. Only six cities reported registrations currently lagging behind 1942. They were Boston, Providence, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, and St. 'aul. Cleveland and Detroit re sorted all-time highs. -o— LONG HOP Chicago, Oct. 18 — W) —Two lit- le frogs made a long hop from heir home in Holland to the Lin- oln Park zoo.

Meanwhile, it was reported that the split between America and Russia as their foremost worry, the delegates of 51 United Nations gathered today to hear President' Truman open their first great assembly on American soil. By plane, train and ship they have been arriving in this new "world capital" all week. Mr. Truman, with a 2,600-word speech in his brief case, was due in during the afternoon.

The luncheon is one of affairs designed to make this a festive day in the history of the United Nations. But in the midst of the color and the confident welcoming speeches, most delegates privately expressed their concern over the tensions existing between th United States and Russia. Every major issue was being examined in that light— in the American delegation as well as in other official groups here. Against that background Mr. Truman had to speak and it was generally expected he would take the opportunity to support and emphasize the "patient but firm" foreign policy toward Russia laid down by Byrnes in his report to the nation last Friday on the Paris peace conference.

And they will raise a whole range of issues — from international relief to dependent peoples — likely to spotlight the split between Russia and the United States. In these controversies Soviet Foreign Minister V. M.» Molotov', who arrived Monday, will lead the Russian delegation and :"ormer Senator • Warren Austin will head the American group.

He has set forth some of Vj'.hcm in his recently published r.utoi;. biography, 'The Happy profession" (Atlantic - Little,-Brown).And n few of his accompanying obsoi ya- tions seem eminently worth passing along. Mr. Sedgwick is prejudiced among other things, against the misuse of words —especially their niisusc by politicians. In a general indictment of the latter, he says: "Straight words, honest words, words that call up an accurate picture of any cause they advocate they consistently eschew. Their ;,')fnvoritcs afc words which people have always associated with well- loved causes." As a timely example, the author asks the reader to "Take the most threadbare of them all, liberal,' once a noble word, 'Originally,' says the dictionary, 'the epithet for those arts which^were worthy of a free man,' it cdfee natur.illy lo signify an attitude favorable toward change in the direction of all the people.

What is the -purpose of this Initiated Act? A. To put every child in the slate n a school district which is large enough to provide a suitable high school education. 2. Isn't this already the case? A. No. In 1943-44 there were 4,1,282 children of high school age not in high school largely because they had no high school to attend. More than 100,000 children resided in school districts loo small to provide any type of high school opportunity. More than 176,000 children resided in districts too small to provide an accredited high school program. There were 1,734 small districts in the state last year which had no accredited high school and 1,016 of these had no high school at all. 3. What does this Act do? A. It dissolves every school district which enumerates less than 350 and puts them into n County Rural School District. It provides n Board of five directors for the newly-created district lo be appointed by the County Board of Education to serve only until the vancc. The Memorial Services will conducted by the Navy.

It is educationally sound to educate the child as close to his home as possible. In every instance whore there are enough children to. justify the employment of a teacher or where geographical factors preclude any other course, a school will be maintained. As a matter of fact, a vast majority of the small schools will continue* The important difference will be that after the Act passed, the small school will operate as a part of the larger district. As such, it will have better supervision, better equipment and bellcr trained teachers. T,hc educational program offered in the small school will be on a par wilh that of similar grades in the larger dislricl. When a child completes six or eight grades offered in jjis school, then there will be another school in his district which he can attend until he graduated from high school.

Neff, here on his first official trip through the railroad's southern district since he became president, said Mo-Pac had ordered $5, 500,000 worth of locomotives and $10,000,000 worth of streamlined passenger train equipment. Another $10.000,00 is being spent for 2.200 freight cars, he added. "The freight car shortage .'s still very tight," he asserted.

Legion to Hold Annual Picnic Thursday Night defense of the British Empire a statement of British overall policy such as had been expected, was the last of the Big Three forensic salvos begun by Secretary Byrnes at Stuttgart early in September. Aside from taking the same position as Byrnes agwinst continued one-way concessions to Russia, and in calling for cither fulfillment or revision of the Polsdam agreements, Bcvin spoke in the main of Britain's conduct in imperial mailers. He was more gentle with the Russians than Byrnes, but rejected the idea thai Brilain's role is one of mcdialion.

All veterans arc invited to attend. agencies come together in one place, the various attitudes, expressed or implied, seem to be: Russia— To appeal directly lo restive- peoples everywhere, using the various meetings as sounding boards .tor spreading her ideology; to work for general peace simultaneously with and after sec-ing how far she can strengthen her own position, but not before. Britain — To escape the complete loss of spheres of influence which have meant almost as much to her as the actual components in opposition to them where nc ccssary; to avoid war, but also to establish bulwarks from which to fight the spread of communism. The small nations — To have their relations with the big nations judged without regard for military or economic strength, but on the basis of right. This outline is of course subject to many qualifications. The United Slates is playing a far higher-pressured game of intcrnalional poli tics than it suggests. Thc imperialism which Britain is trying to prc serve is vastly changed in spirit since the days of the old trading companies. A good argument can be made that Russia, regardless ot what one may think of nor methods, is sincerely striving toward the betterment of man's living conditions. Some small nations, already trapped, like some men on relief during the depression, don't seem to be striving too hard for individualism. But that is, in a general way, the silualion as the 'nations gather. Now we may find whether those who have been fishing in troubled waters consider them fished out and a period of calm more desirable; whelhcr there is to be atomic control or an armaments race; whether equal access lo the world's goods can be established, or whether national pri,de and lists of possessions arc to be preserved or ex panded at the expense of casualty lists. ncgotialions continued in an at tempi to effect final settlement of the nationwide shipping tie - up which began Oct. 1. President John L. Lewis of the United Mine Workers, (AFL), pl-iccd the next move up lo the government in the Ihrcalcncd coal mine strike. Lewis had asked Secretary of Interior J. A. Krug to start new wage negotiations under the government's contracl wilh Ihe miners within 10 days. The government has operated Ihc soft c;;al mines under a contract wilh the miners since shorlly after il seized the mines !ast May to end a two-month strike. II has continued operation under the contract because the mine owners have been unable to reach a contract agreement with Ihc union. Further negotiations were scheduled in the shipping strike today between ship owners and representatives of the AFL Masters Males and Pilots Associalion. Agreement reportedly was blocked only by the minor issue of whether ship captains should be included in the union. Ship operators already had reached agreement wilh the CMIO Marine Engineers on the cast and gulf coasts. At Port Arthur, Tex., four men were injuivd slightly when rioting broke out yesterday on the waterfront between members of the CM1 National Maritime Union and non- Union Seamen.

The • British government has opposed publicu- ;ion of ihc pictures.

But the pictures will be published in American publications which circulate in Germany. Tile bodies arc pictures lying atop their bare, black coffins, with the printed name across the chest of each. The suicide Hermann Gocring lies dressed in his pajamas. Nooses arc still about the necks of six of the ten hanged men. The pictures of Kcitel and Frick are grisly, with blood spattered over the men's faces and pillows. Washington, Oct. 23. Backed by his threat of a national coal strike next month. John L.
