It places the educational welfare of the children first then sets up a pattern of Iccal control which is sufficiently comprehensive to accomplish this purpose. The location and operation of schools and the employment of teachers will still be determined by the elected representatives of the people in the district. Twelve (12) states now have the County Unit plan with the county as a district. Only fifteen (15) states now have a larger number of school districts than Arkansas and even after the passage of this Act, twenty (20) states will have fewer districts than Arkansas. 6. How will the children get to school? A. The State has already established a program wherein it will pay the cost of transportation wherever a child lives more than two miles from a school. In isolated areas, local schools will be maintained and expanded to satisfy the educational needs of the children. 7. What are the specific advantages which the Act will make possible? (a) A high school for every boy All this will happen al the meeting of the United Nations General Assembly which opens today in New YiiVk. The vclo question is to be discussed there. It is the first time the General Assembly has met in this country allhough the U. N. Security Coun cil has been meeting here. The Veto—the power of one big nation to block the desires of all other nations, big and small, by simply voting "no"—occurs only in the security council, not in the as sembly. This overwhelming power of the veto by a big nation—which thus can prevent U. N. action against itself or its friends—has made Smaller nations dissatisfied. • And it has made many private citizens jittery about the long-range success of aiv organization like U. N. where so much power is held by a big nation. • In short, it means a big nation can throw its weight round, abuse a smaller nation, and bring the world close to war without any vear that U.-N. can stop it. But if the veto power js to be removed from the security council, the start must be made in the general assembly. There's the story. When U. N. was formed at ban ranctsco in 1945 it was divided into! two main bodies: the Security Coun cil and the Assembly. In the assembly there's no veto. All 51 member nations have one vote. It's like a big debating society. It deals in things like human welfare, :?ood, education, labor, and other international problems. A majority vote makes decisions. The security council, on the other hand, has the job of trying to pre vent the outbreak of war. If xwo nations get into a quarrel which may lead to trouble, the security POULTRY AND PRODUCE Chicago.

The store was robbed apparently by someone having a key after it closed at 5 p. m. and before it reopened at 7 p. m. for the evening Kirsch, operator, said auction.

He found the door locked but it •vas opened immediately by a strange man who motioned Sherman to enter. Sherman told officers that as he •started to enter he saw two other men both wearing white gloves removing jewelry from the curtained jhow window.

Rogge said "the Nazis always preferred the one who opposed President Roosevelt. They preferred ttCtwnf Karidon, "Wiljfeie, and Dewey. They had a strong preference for Dewey. They did not particularly Uke WiUk.ie, but they felt any president would be better for their purposes* than President said me In As he gave the alarm, passersby reported that two men carrying a hox left the store and ran down Central Avenue. A third man entered an automobile which was double-parked in front of the store. Police Captain Jerry- Watkins said he was holding two men for questioning and that an order has gone out to pick up Ihe black car oearing the 'Massachusetts license plate. But only 11 nations are represented in the security council. Six o: them, small nations, are elected by the general assembly for shor terms. Five of the council's'11 members are permanent members. -They're not elected. Thev -were there :'rom the start. They'll stay there as the Big Five: United States, Britain, Russia, France, China. When the council votes on important matters—like one nation abusing another—a majority vote makes decisions provided—and this is vhe important point—all five of the Big Five vote "yes." Even through the 10 other nations on the council vote "yes," if one of the Big Five votes "no' 1 —'that's the veto—then nothing can be done about the problem upon wnich the council is voting. Since the council has been voting—that's almost a- year now — Kussia has used its veto six times. There's dispute as to whether the United States used the veto once. The point is not clear. It's technical. In spite of all that has been said —and plenty has—against the veto, the big powers still want it. Each of the big powers, when it can use a veto, can protect itself against the other big powers. There's been ;io indication that this government, or Russia or England or France—is willing to surrender its veto power. In order to eliminate the veto from the council, this would have to happen: Two-thirds of thp assembly would have to approve a special conference to decide about ending the veto. Two-thirds of that special conference then would have to approve ending it. Two-thirds of the 51 U. N. Nations —including the Big Five—would then have to approve it by action of their legislatures or congresses or parliaments or central governments. If one of the. B.ig Five Nations refused to approve, then the veto would stay. No one thinks the U. S. Senate, which would have to do the approving for this country, is in any mood to. kill our veto in the council. beef bulls went round 17.00-50; medium and good sausage bulls 14.00-lli.50; choice vealers held to a top of 22.00; medium and good 17.00-20.75.

NEW YORK STOCKS ' New York, Oct. 23 —(/P)— Late demand for sugar and liquor shares stemmed a slow decline in the stock market today.

"He presented himself as a very good friend of John L? Lewis. He told me that Lesvis was very influential; that he was backed by the trade unions; and that he was very important -for a positive attitude towards Germany. Davis told me that by the use of his influence on Lewis, he could influence the elections in such a manner so that the reelection of Roosevelt which, in his opinion, would mean war, would be prevented.'" The special assistant to the J. S. Attorney General said Goer- ng told him "I would have spent >100,OQO,000 to $150,000,000" to in- iluence the 1940 election. Rogge said Hertslet, in recalling the Davls-Goering conversations, told him that Davis, during the course of the conferences at the outbreak of the European war, "telephoned from Berlin to Lewis in the United States and reported disotisseir- -Mexican*'pil and using ' •'"• i"K Eewis to Sevelt for re declared "this is the substance' of what he (Goering) had to say on these subjects: 'Davis talked to me about ^«hn L.

Hertslet also was quoted as saying that Davis told the Nazi chiefs "he was willing to put millions of his own money into the scheme to have Lewis help him defeat President Roosevelt, but added ihat he would need additional financial support from the Nazis." Davis further stated, according to Hertslet, that "in the event he was successful in having President win new wage increases and de- story remnants of government wage control. His bold dash into a fight with Secretary of Interior* J. A. Krug put him into a strategic position io lead that drive, it also raised the threat of a nationwide bituminous mine shutdown—perhaps on Nov. I, perhaps on Nov .20—as winter approached. Krug and his federal coal administration, which has operated soft coal mines since May 22, returned the first punch. Lewis retaliated with another, containing a veiled but very real threat of a walkout by his United Mine Workers (AFL). Lewis opened his campaign Monday by asking a wage negotiating conference with the government Nov. 1. He wanted a new agreement to replace the one he had Krug signed May 29 after the government seized the mines to prevent a renewal of a shutdown which had lasted six weeks. Krug and Capt. N. H. Collisspn, federal coal administrator, replied that the May ?9 agreement contained no reopening clause. In a letter to Lewis, Colllsson cited a provision in the government contract saying it "covers for the period of government possession the terms and conditions of employment in respect to all mines in government possession " Wheat closed unchanged to 7-8 higher, January $2.04 3-4, corn was 3-8 lower to 1-8 higher, January $1.40 1-2, and oats were 3-8 lower to 6 cent higher, November 33 18— 1-4.

Morris 80, long-time bishop of the Littl Rock Roman Catholic Diocses win succumbed to a long illness yesterday. -.. His Grace Samuel Cardinal Stritch of the Archdiocese of Chicago, will say the pontifical mass. Cardinal Stritch was an alter boy 'or Bishop Morris during the later's early prieslhood. Bishop Morris, head of the Catholic Diocese here since 1907, was ihe founder of many institutions n Arkansas, including St. Joseph's, orphanage near Little Rock and numerous schools. A native of Tennessee, where he once was rector of the cathedral in Mashville, Bishop Morris wenl to Rome to train for the priesthood. He was ordained there in 1892 and Jater returned to his native Ten- aess.ee Diocese. In June, 1900, he was' appointed vicar general of ,he Diocese and a few months later Pope Pius X appointed him domestic prelate with the title of consignor. The bishop has been an invalid Cor many years but his death was unexpected. He was the third bish- np of the 100-year-old Diocese of Little Bpck. The body will lie in state at the cathedral from 3:30 p. m. Thursday until the funeral Tuesday. Survivors include a brother, Jerome Morris; three sisters, Mrs. Agnes'Sullivan, and Miss Margaret Morris, both of Wn"V"' ! 'le T-—-•.. and 'Mrs. Henry Griffith of Minneapolis, Minn. White Men Freed in Negro Slaying Lexington, Miss., Oct. 23 —(UP) — Five while men were absolved oday of manslaughter in ihe Hoging death of a Negro. The men admitted whipping 35 year old Leon McAtee for a saddle ;heft confessed later by two others. But Ihe defendants testified in court that the whipping was not severe enough to cause death. Judge S. F. Davis said that evidence introduced at the two-day trial failed to support the indict ments of Spencer Ellis, 62 year old farmer, and Pvl. James E. Roberts, a soldier on furlough. Both received directed verdicts of acquittal. The others — Jeff Dodd, Sr., Gf year old planter on whose farm McAtee was a tenant; Jeff Dodd Jr., 35, salesman, and Dixon G Roberts, 41. taxi-cab operator •— were freed within 10 minutes after the all-white jury received the case for deliberation. McAtee was beaten for the sus peeled theft last Julv. He %yas seen later by his common-law wife Henrietta with his mouth bruisec and a "strange look in his eyes.' But she testified thai she didn' know if he was unconscious al th tirqe. confident thai we will have news." One big Ihing in Rupert's favor is his altitude. . All observers agree that his approach to his problem leaves nothing In be desired except calves; Outside help in the form of hormones, vilamincs and advice has been showered upon Rupert without .success since his plight first became known. That was back in January, 1043, Turner painfully remembers. In those days Rupert was known as T. Royal Rupert 99th, fanciest Hereford bull in the land. Turner received a record~T)rice of $38,000 when he sold him jointly to Charles Pettit of Flat Top Ranch, Walnut Springs, Tex., and Gladacre farm of Dallas, Texas. Several months passed and it as learned that as a herd builder uperl was a flop. So back . he vent tu Turner under an agreement etween cattlemen which covers uch situations. Turner dispatched the bull to \ansns Stale College, Manhattan, ias., where experts diagnosed his rouble as "infantilism,' ' vainly gaVe him thyroid and pilwlary extracts and then sent iiirn back with the sad las "no improvement." Turner,' who not only is very fond ot Rupert but also hns difficulty figuring $311.000 worth of sausage Hi him, kept the bull around his "Hereford Heaven ' ranch foi-va while and then decided on ihe Des Moines treatment-.

A U. S. Army public relations officer said the army had :'ur- nished Von Papen an escort to q house in Nuernberg. At the house Von Papen was given temporary quarters by Karl Adam ,once a machine gunner in Von Papen's regiment in the first world war. When he left the prison Von Papen was accompanied by his son.

An imtnigralion bureau spokesman said that the bureau would like to believe a ruling by U. S. Attorney General Tom Clark last week upholding the original decision refusing them entry. But it flumly agreed that il wasn't the end of the problem. "They've been ordered to leave," the spokesman said. "Bul there's no place lor them to go. And we just can't tow them out to the three mile limit and let it go at that." The bureau has directed that they leave Miami harbor within a. "reasonable time." It admitted that any guess was good as another as to what constituted a reasonable lime. Bluntly, the bureau said, the case of the refugees that excited the imagination of the world simply was another case of illegal entry. One gleam of hope remained for the Estonians and the one Finn waiting out the "reasonable time" in the southern port. They might reach another country, qualify under its emigration laws, and then apply for entry from there. Such a procedure has been started by 15 fellow-countrymen who crossed the ocean and arrived at Puerto Rico Sept. 9. They reached the Dominican Republic Sept. 15, and arc attempting to enter this country from that republic. o The Doctor * Says: BY WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M.D. Generally speaking, well - fed children arc taller and heavier than arc their parents, and college .students arc taller and heavier than are those who do not attend col : . legc. Heredity plays a minor role in these differences; the main factor is better 'nutrition. The influence of family income on children's growth and development is the direct result of tha financial ability of the parents to put into practice the principles of good nutrition. High - income families do' not necessarily have physi- caly upcrior children, however. The effect of better nutrition on the American children of foroisn- born parents is striking.

DEAR DOROTHY DIX: My brother is 40 years ole. Married. Has four children. He is an office manager and in this man shortage has 10 high • school girls in his employ. He wants lo know how to keep By RUTH COWAN Washington, Oct.. 23 — (/P)— The suicide rale of World War II officers was twice that of enlisted men, and the number of doctors and nurses who killed themselves was far out of proportion. Those are among tlie sludies of 1,179 suicides and 656 homicides among army personnel. Caplain Normal Zamcheck, now wilh Ihe Harvard Medical School, and Murray A. Geisler, an institute statistician, said many of their findings tended to support trends among civilians. For instance: About four times as many soldiers over 40 years committed suicide as did those between 20 and 29. Civilian statislics show that Ihe suicide rate between 40 and 50 is from two to three times that between 20 to 29. Also army suicides were more frequent in the morning, reaching a peak between 7 and 8 o'clock. This was ascribed in part of sleepless nights of worry. Thus after a person has started the day's work, the impulse to self- destruction slackens. The peak on Sunday was from 9 to 11 a. m., probably due to the later rising hour. However Sunday accounted for- the lowest number — 141 out of the 1179. "Blue Monday" acounted lor 151. Thursdays and Salurdays tied for high with 167. The report ascribed the higher rale among officers to greater age and responsibilities and said the probable reason for the large number of suicides among doctors and nurses was their familiarity with and access to poisons and lethal drugs. The 656 homicide cases studied presented a picture in some respects almost opposite to that of suicides. The maximum age of homicide victims was between 20 and 30. \nd the rate among officers was >nly one-third that of enlisted :men. Th'e majority met death after 6 D. m., with the largest number be ween 11 p.m. and midnight. . • Cotton Break to Save Money for Shoppers Washington, Oct. 22 — (/P) -*- An OPA official said today that Nov ember shoppers for cotton dresses;' Shirts and similar items arc due to save money as a result of la&t 5 week's market break.

Thus if market 'prices rise one month,' OPA must lift-its ceilings on cotton products the next month. Such increases'were required for' August, September and October.
