Oct. .28.—CUP)— Army Units and National police'- 'coper- ated today in dawn raids that resulted in the arrest of more than a score of persons. The alleged "revolutionary conspirators" were seized in the provinces of Havana and Pinar del Rio, most of them in the neighboring municipality of Marianao. The troops were led by Brig. Gen. Ruperto Cabrera and the police by Brig. Gen. Abelardo Gomez. Authorities admitted that those arrested long had been held under surveillance and it was believed they took advantage of a secret meeting to arrest them all at once. Later, Maj. Gen. Genovevo Perez Damera accompanied Gen. Cabrera to the presidential palace to talk over the raids with President Grau San Martin. MOTHER Relieve dls- tress of baby's cold while he sleeps.

The CIO Marine Engineers, which had reached an agreement with ship operators last week, issued clearance papers its members for their return to work with removal of picket lines. The marine engineers had remained on strike, refusing lo cross the AFL picket lines. The settlement negotiations did not affect striking unions on the west coasl. but members of the Pacifc-American Shipowners Association met with officials of the CIO Longshoremen's Union in afl attempt to remove Ihc one minor obstacle to settlement.

In the threatened strike of 400,000 AFL United Mine Workers, the administration was fnced with critical polilical and economic considerations. It could prevent the strike by yielding lo union demands for a new conlracl to replace the one under which the miners have been operating under government control. But if it wrote a new contract, the government would have to repudiate Secretary of Interior ..!. A. Krug, who hew thai tne presem one could not be reopened, and it would have to abandon its wage stabilization policy. The strike deadline is only four days before the general elections. In the movie strike, rival unions agreed to appoint a "labor czar" to arbitrate jurisdictional .disputes which have plagued the industry recurrently.

At a mass meeting yesterday, resentful members of the 5,000- strong Textile . Workers union of America (CIO) passed two resolutions tagging Morrison as .a 'strikebreaker" and urged the powerful CIO industrial council to take similar action to light. Morrison denied last night he *i*«* * t s>V 14V114WI 4«4fc>W llfg(4b ItW was a strikebreaker, and said the action begun today was sought in the interest of public welfare. "The welfare of 600,000 residents must be considered above the welfare of any group," the mayor said, "and city health authorities have informed rne the five-day accumulation threatens a pote-nlial- ly danagerous. silua.tlon. Many volunteers poured into the assembly area from Tulane University, where President Rufus Harris excused from classrooms all students who had, garbage-collecting aspirations, , Four of the 45 trucks pressed into use today were manned by defiant-'members of Tulanc's aloof Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, and several other Greek Brotherhoods were expected to contribute collectors. Paul Schuler, representative of the textile workers, said the action taken by his union yesterday "was a spontaneous gesture prompted by the city administration's arbi trary decision to assume the position of strikebreakers." He said no action was planned by the textile workers until Mayor Morrison 'actually went so far as to urge the public to help break a strike, instead of going through what has come to be the accepted methods of settling such disagreements — negotiations." Schuler added the union would not have intervened if the city ad- Petectives from Mexico City were reported on their way to join 200 federal troops and an airplane already searching the thinly populated area. Charles Edward Beach, 28, New York artist, was slated for another interview with authorities today in regard to his wife's death on a honeymoon camping trip. He told the federal prosecutor's office in a formal declaration Saturday that three masked men armed with shotguns blasted a hole in his wife's shoulder ns the two lay sleeping beside the river Wednesday night. She later died. The troops were under orders to search the village -of Tetcla, near the campsite, for money and a .22- calibre rifle and other equipment which Beach said were stolen and to find twb Indians to whom he said the couple had talked, Beach's wife died in Guerrero state and he brought her body to Mexico City in ,a private ; plane without permission from state officials. In an effort to clear up the resultant legal tangle, the state has been asked to let the federal district handle Ihe case. Mr. and Mrs. Beach had been' wed only four months and were on a honeymoon they expected to finance by selling color photographs a,nd magazine articles developed on the trip. ministration had not taken such ac- lion. "Naturally," Schuler said, 'it is hoped that' this stand will lead to a peaceful and just settlement of a situation which is inconveniencing the public and threatening the post- tion of organized iubor."

' ' Are you interested in schools, and especially your own school? ' ' x Are you familiar withi and have you given close consideration, to Proposed Initiated Act. No. 1, which' . ,,', will be voted on Tuesday, November 5th., 1946? ' . . . ; Do you know that if this act passes all schools of 349 and less will automatically be dissolved? ' _,, ^ Do you know that all of these schools will, for a long period of time, be at the mercy of an appointed ^., r '.' board, not one elected by the people, until the appointed board has time to do its work? . , '_• , ,./ Do you know that in matters of annexation, if this bill passes, you are for the first time in the history «,. ',** of this state, denied the right to go to any court on appeal? Why dodge the courts, when have they been -• - "^ unfair to the school people? ,1: , ^ ''Icl Do you think large rural sections, say 300, 325, up to 350, should be torn up — where there has been', ; a 10 or 12 teacher school for half a century? -,' Do you think our dirt roads in the rural sections will permit such transportation, or don't you know that most of the heavily loaded school buses will spend a large part of their time in some mud hole or garage. Don't you think beginners, especially very small children, will suffer greatly in weather, such as we have in Arkansas, just to please a political gang, on roads such as we have? They try to confuse you by shedding tears over the one-room school. We are all against that, but at the same time this thing reaches on up to the 1 0 or 12 room school. We all know they have overstepped. Why undertake to abolish the one-room school, and at the same time include the 10 or 12 room school? They seem to think that the only way to have a good school is to throw all of the pupils together." That is not good business, is economically unsound, and an added expense. Besides, in many of our large rural schools, say 300 or more, are some of our most ardent supporters of schools — What would their community be when this is done, a living graveyard. They already have good ^schools, but the sponsors say they may not use this authority; well, then, why are you seeking it if you don't intend to use it' We already have too much centralization, mind you, we have too many one-room schools, but we already have ample laws, to remedy this situation, and it is" being, and has already been done in many counties. This act, if passed will automatically put the schools into a political fuss or race, not every two years, but at every annual school election, certainly every section will, of necessity, want and need its man on that five man board, which is going to dictate. This board will automatically be able to control every county election. The sponsors of this act say that most lawyers are against this and they are, for they know that it is seeking to deprive the people of their legal rights and citizenship. Remember, this act, if passed, gives no additional revenue, and we are all agreed that school teachers, are underpaid, and that the schools need more money, even though they have just received $5,000,000.00 more than ever before, still we know that this isn't sufficient, but this amendment would leave most large rural sections in a state of uncertainty subject at all times ro be eliminated or annexed to the other fellow's community, and in Section 3 you will find the very cold-blooded language as follows; the only district to be consulted is the one getting or receiving the other fellowYdistrict or school, not the one to be moved at all. Just ask a certain district, "Are you willing to take them", and never say to the district with, say 325 enrolled, "where would you prefer to go?". Read Section 3. If you are interested in the defeat of this proposed Act, get busy ot once and help do it, and if you have any suggestions or_donatjonsjo make they will be greatly appreciated. If this is. Democracy in action, with the ri£ht of appeal to all courts denied, then our gang'all the way down the line didn't know what they were fighting for, even from Valley Forge to Okinawa.
