Bradley told a reporter: "I know nothing about published reports that I am about to quit his job. When I took it, I understood it would be for a period of 18 months or two years. The eighteen months period is about up, and naturally I am eager to return to my arm duties as soon as possible. "However, there arc several things I would like to finish up first." The number one problem, Bradley said, is decentralization of thc veterans insurance organization, now underway. Number two is thc veterans hospital program.

Strike Situation Is Improved By United Press The three-week shipping tie-up was partially settled »oday. but a new strike threat arose in the nation's soft coal mines. In a third major labor dispute, the While House stepped into thc strike of transcontinental and western airline pilots. The first real break in the man time strike came when the CIO Marine Engineers Union and ship opei ators on thc cast and gulf coasts reached an agreement after a pro longed, negotiating session which bcg'an Sunday. Thc agreement reportedly includes a 15 per cent wage increase, higher overtime rates and preferential union hiring. The settlement, covering 44 shipping firms and 12,000 union members, becomes effective upon ratification by local Committees to Occupy Laney'sTime Little Rock, Oct. 22 — (/P)—Conferences withNeslablished commil- tees and formation of new ones will occupy most of Governor Laney's time the next 15 days the chiet executive declared today.

They were released yesterday, however, when Fleming failed lo press charges. The Trumbull's misery began months ago. When she was at Houston, Texas, last August, crew members were jitter and suspicious 1 . Fleming said then hc was inclined lo believe that thc cat overboard could have been the cause. The skipper has never permit- led, in his 42 years al sea, a mcm- ' bcr of his crew to whistle aboard ship. Bul Ihe messboy threw a live cat overboard. Then the ship ran tiground :icar New Orleans, and crew troubles were reported. Off -Jacksonville, Fla., a member of ihc crew suffered a broken arm. Thc ship's mascot clog disappeared at Danzig, Poland, and never returned. And thc ship went aground oft Denmark. Fleming said the recent trouble started before thc Trumbull, carrying a cargo of coal, hit Venice.

MODERN 3 RING threat of a coal mine walkout in the dead of winter when the nation needs coal the most. Lewis demanded 'chat ihc miners' contract with the government be re opened. If the UMW's demands arc not met a strike could be called Nov.. 20 under terms of the government contract.4 The government has been operating the mines since it seized them lasl May to end a two-month walkout. The government negotiated a contract with thc UMW after the seizure and has continued operation of the mines because the owners have been unable to reach an agree ment with Lewis. Lewis charged that the government breached the contract by failing to make effective an arbitration award on pro-rata vacation payments. He also charged that he government was using the commissions. This is in line with informal suggestions of other state officers that thc selection of county commissions should be at thc | county level.

M .V other day a Hope resident was surprised to learn that the telephone girls here are handling almost twice as many local and long distance calls as they were just a few years ago. It is interesting to note how the rapid growth of Hope is reflected in its telephone system. This record demand for service exceeds even the busiest days during the construction of the Southwestern Proving Grounds hefe. As a result, existing telephone facilities are heavily loaded. Additional equipment representing gross expenditures of $15,000 is needed to speed telephone service for present users, to provide service for those waiting, and to make room for future growth. i New Telephone Equipment Ordered "* Earlier this year we ordered a new switchboard position and sufficient wire and other equipment to bring nearly 500 new subscriber lines into our central office here. In common with other businesses, however, we are still feeling the material shortages caused by the war. Copper and lead and lumber are still hard to get. Too, it takes months to convert raw materials into thc complex telephone equipment *hat Hope needs. We're waiting in line at thc factories and the speed with which our orders are filled will largely determine the speed with which we can rush the equipment to Hope. i 500 Telephones Connected """^ Since the first of this year we have connected over 500 telephones. Today, only 23 families in Hope and its adjacent rural areas are waiting for telephone service. This was done by "stretching" existing facilities through such emergency measures as these: FIRST, we are making maximum use of party-lines. This enables us to provide telephones for more people^ As a result, however, we have connected more telephones to our switchboards than they were designed to handle. Each day 14,000 local calls are handled here—almost DOUBLE the 1940 iigure. In the past six years'the number oi local telephones hat DOUBLED—from 1000 to 2000 station!. Six years'ago we had but 15 operators. Today's telephone traffic necessitates a force DOUBLE that size. In 1940, an average oi 188 long distance calls were placed here daily. Now the average has more than DOUBLED—381. SECOND, we are reassigning telephone numbers almost as fast as they become available. This allows us to use every telephone number on the switchboard. Switchboards Fully Manned At present we have 10 switchboard positions. During the busy hours—from early morning until mid-evening—there is a telephone operator at each position, for that is when Hope makes most of its local and long distance calls. It is the desire of each operator to handle yo.ur call as quickly as possible. If there is sometimes a delay before you hear the familiar "Number, please," it means that there are so many calls that the operator just can't handle your call with the usual speed. More People — More Service Thus, more people art .getting more telephone service than ever before, and in the great tnajority of cases it is good service. Bu,t it-is pur aim to make it even better when we. install the new equipment we have on order. We look forward to the day wheri-werwill be able to offer telephone service to everyone who wants it, when, wlvere, arid'how hc wants it. Meantime, we are 'doing all we can to give Hope telephone users the best possible service in keeping with record telephone demand. &-. m H. W.

Congress May Kill OPA by First of Year Washington ,Oct. 24 — (/PI— Congress may kill OPA in January, some high administration officials predicted today. But they added that by then only a slim list of very scarce, badly needed items i naddition to rent will remain under ceilings. As if to emphasize this forecast, OPA snatched its price tags *rom cosmetics and a long list of non- fod products today in a quick fol- lowup to last midnight's sweeping food and beverage decontrol. Together the two actions swept overboard another big segment o wage control because the government applies itspay curbs only when higher price ceilings are involved. Statisticians said that in the case of food and restaurant industries alone, some 1,500,000 workers were cut loose from wage control. On the food list, only sugar, sy rups and rice remain under OPA.

H lc I Krug told newsmen in Boulder ain now may have renounced imperialism, the British Empire was awfully imperialistic 90 years ago. One might have wondered if it was the icy Ohio or the beautiful blue Danube that Eliza crossed, or if the ghosts of Uncle Tom and Gungii Uin were germane to the discussion. One might have wondered why Mr. Molotov felt it ncccs-' sary to cite our abnormal national income in the war years of 194144, and to deplore the extensive circulation of American movies and radio programs. But thore was no mistaking him when he said, "I believe private capitalists can become veritable owners of whole states where they can do what they wish.... as the result of the power their dollars give them." Mr. Vandcnbcrg might have made the obvious answer. Ownership of any of the Danubian slates by private' dollar capitalists is ridiculous and impossible. Nobody, besides this country and Uritain knows Ilia' any better than Russia. Mr. Vandcnberg might have expressed his beliet that powerful authoritarian governments, strong in arms and men but poor in money, can also become "veritable owners of whole states." He could have deplored the extensive circulation ot Soviet films and broadcasts and news and culture. or even their exclusive circulations, in some parts of eastern Europe. He could have cited the dangers of cx- ploitiition not by the goods - and- money rich but by the goods - and money poor. He might even have cited chapter and verse in these answers. Fortunately he did not. For that would only have encouraged the continuing and distressing method of Soviet negotiation which lias been employed ever since Potsdam. That method, of course, is to counter every attempt lo check Russian expansion with divcrsionar charges and accusations. These charges have sometimes assumed ridiculous proportions — even, as above, to finding threats in American and British government policies of nearly a century ago. In the majority of cases these accusations have boon irrelevant. In the majority of cases they have not been pursued to a point of impasse. But always they have served to create an atmosphere, to deepen and set the cleavage 1 Hvccn East and West which as wide as ever today.

Harris in Challenge to War Vets America's veterans, were challenged to assume their responsibility in peace just as they did in war, by Congressman Oren Harris in a speech before the Veterans of Foreign Wars last night at the VFW hall, the former Elks hall. It was an open meeting for all former armed service members, and thc hall was crowded. The Seventh Arkansas district congressman, a native of this ounty, declared: "What would we gain by winning he world through the United ^aliens and losing our democracy al home? The future destiny of his country depends on the action jf the veterans in assuming their position in life. 'They can not expect a mere landout, and for things to come easy—for whatever benefits they •cceive will have to come from a planned program. We have far made substanlial pro- veil hus visions for velerans, all of which are certainly deserving. There will be need in thc future for other pro- ams.

For example: The records show that the death rate of veterans of World War 1 was highest in 1932 Charges Recent Cotton Break to Politics Washington, Oct. 24 —(/I 1 )— Senator Elmer Thomas (D-Okla) said today that politics may have been the cause of the recent sharp break in cotton prices. "If my state goes Republican in November," he said at the opening of an Agriculture Commitee investigation of the market drop, "it will be largely because, of this incident and OPA." He added that Oklahoma cotton farmers suspect the decline last week "was brought about deliberately for political effect." "Oklahoma cotton farmers think they have been unlairly treated and think the government should do something about it," he said. "If it doesn't, they think the government ought to be changed." The senator, who is chairman of the Agriculture committee, returned last night from his home state. J. E. MacDonald, Texas State Agriculture commissioner .and first witness at the hearing, said he agreed with Thomas that the market break which carried cotton down from 39 to 32 cents a pound 'will have a political effect on the administration now in power." "I don't think we ever had anything in Texas that caused as much indignation as this break in cotton that took millions of dollars in purchasing power out of the farmers' pockets," MacDonald said. MacDonald declared that OPA's Monster Washed Ashore May Be of Prehistoric Origin Anchorage, Alaska, Oct. 24 — (UP) — Villagers at nearby Homer debated today whether the monster washed ashore on Cook's inlet was of prehistoric origin. The mammoth creature, which resembles a huge lizard, is 18 feet, 10 inches long. According to the villagers, it has crocodile-shaped jaws and its bony head measures three and one-half feet long and two feet, three inches wide. Its body is covered with hair-like fur and its teeth, 22 lower and 20 upper are four inches long and an inch thick. . o .

The tall farm youngster and Karl Hoffman, his father, were in the main arena as the price began to climb with some 100 bidders at the opening. "I thought $4 a pound would be good," thc youth said. "I figured it might go to $10 or $11 a pound Even in hoping, I never had Ihought of more than $11 a pound." But thc bidding opened at $5 a pound.

Clark Nor to Be Replaced Says Truman Washington, Oct. 24 —(/P)—-President Truman today described as absurd a reporter's question as to whether Attorney General Tom Clark may be replaced by Senator Wheeler (D-Mont). Wheeler was listed to sec Mr. Truman after the president's news conference. Mr. Truman also described as absurd a question as to whether Associate Justice Robert H. Jackson was resigning from the Supreme Court. Both reports, he said, were too absurd for comment. Later in thc conference the president was asked if Secretary of Navy Forrestal was likely to leave his post, possibly to take a State Department job. Any report along that line, the shief executive commented, is in the same category as the rumors involving Clark and Jackson. U, S.

The letter gol shunted aside for many weeks while the State Departmenl was absorbing some of xhc wartime agencies which dealt with Kerr.
