Probe Material Shortages ~ By STERLING F. GREEN Washington, Oct. f! — (/)')— Tlu government embarked on a scries of new expedients today to round up scarce lumber and nails for veterans housing, including the removal of import duties on wood suitable 'or construction. These developments came in quick order: 1. President Truman proclaimed an emergency under which a list of limber, lumber and lumber r} producls designated by National v Housing Administrator Wilson planned to have the list ready Wyatt will be duty free. Wyalt Monday. 2. Wyatt announced the' government will pay manufacturers a premium of $20 a ton for housing nails produced in excess of quotas based on their output in the first half of 1946. 3. The housing agency and Civilian Production Administration launched a drive against black ^ markets in which they said :uiils ^ sell for as much as ten limes thc legal price. 4. Thc NHA and CPA reported that leading nail companies have pledged a production boost of near- y 25 percent by December. NHA officials said the waiver of duty will offset the threat to lumber shipments from Canada, main source ot imported wood, which resulted when Canada revalued its dollar to parity with the U. S. dollar. This made the U. S. dollar worlh 10 per cent less in «, rms of Canadian exchange. -•' At Portland, Ore., thc West oasl Lumberman's Association oubtcd Ihc move would have nuch effect H. V.

Nevertheless the year's building activity, they predicted, will exceed by a good margin the all- time peak of 1925 when 037,000 homeu were starled. .

The American delegation's posi lion was that the Russians, in vlic interest of peace, also should publish details on their own troops dispositions. However, it was emphasized that the American delegation attitude was viol contingent on similar action by the Sovicl Union. American publication of troop dispositions would head off what was expected to be one of the most bitter battles in the current assembly meeting. Soviet Foreign Commissar V.M. Molotov was scheduled to speak to the assembly later in the day, and it was believed he might renew Russia's demand for troop details. The small nations, meanwhile, renewed their assault on the big five veto power with the Philip pines, Colombia and Syria attack ing the uses made of the veto in don and Moscow. Upon returning to London from Germany, France and Scandinavia, I wired Slalin 31 questions on October 21. Last night he answered all 31 questions. Stalin's reply regarding the presence of CO divisions in the west follows by a few days Winston Churchill's inquiry in the House of Commons as to whether the 'JSSR had not 200 divisions on 1 a war fooling in the occupied territories from the Baltic to Vienna and from Vienna to the Black Sea. Regarding the occupation of Ja pan, Stalin said, "there are sue cesses, but it would be possible to attain better successes." Regarding the Russian govern merit's attitude toward the presence of American warships in the Mediterranean, Stalin said, "indifferent." Regarding the Soviet divisions in the west, Stalin said they would be reduced from CO to 40 divisions when the decree of the presidium of the Supreme Sovicl dated October 22 had been implemented. My first question to Stalin was, "Do you agree with Secretary of Stale Byrnes' feeling, as expressed n his radio address, thai there is growing tension between the USSR md the Uniled Slalcs."

Allis-Chalmcrs. * The status of the soft 'coal crisis " remained outwardly confused. President Truman said at his news conference yesterday .-••that there would be no coal strike. But he did not say whether the government had decided to reopen its con- H tract with the United Mine Workers, (AFL). as demanded bv Lewis. • Lewis prepared for negotiations > with the government on the assumption that the government had decided to reopen the contract, and he gave assurances that there would be no strike while negotiations were in progress. Previously, he had threatened a strike next Friday if the government failed to reopen the contract for, wage dis>- cussions. . At Minden, Nov., however, Sec- British hope . of veto move was Summer T.

Pike, whose home is in Lubec, Me., quit the SKC with the explanation, "I'm getting stale." As ilienthal's successor as head of the Riant TVA, Mr. Truman named Gordon R. Clapp, general manager of the government utility since 1939. Clapp received the appointment, which is effective Nov. 1, on his 41st birthday. The president announced his selections at a special news conference late yesterday. He signed ksglslalion creating the ^commission August -.1, • then spent '12 weeks searching for mcr whose "abilities and experience" he believes "will command the confidence of the country." Their appointments, as well as that of Clapp, arc subject to Senate confirmation when Congress based entirely upon Russia's volun tary cooperation. . Asked if he thought the veto had been used .to excess, Stalin replied bluntly, "no, f do not."

Initiated Act No. 1 Subject to General Election November 5 One of the basic needs of our school system in' Arkansas today is to overhaul our school administrative structure so thai every child will be placed in a clislrict which is large enough to provide decent educational 'opportunities from grade one through sradc twelve. The teachers of Arkansas, after more than two years of study on this problem, have initiated an Act through their organization, the Arkansas Education, which we believe will satisfy this need. The people will vote on Initiated Act No. 1 on November 5. We believe Ihis act will provide a high school for every child, more economical expenditure of school money and belter qualified teachers. In order that you may determine for yourself what the Acl provides, 1 am enclosing a folder which (.lives the enlire act and some pertinent information about it. I hope you will study this; and then, if in Ihe lighl pf you own sludy you conclude lliat it will be a step in the right direction, we respectively solicit your vote and active support for to be along the lines of American and Brilisn thought and therefore open the way for real progress by not confining atomic control to national control.

In answer to the qucslion "Do you consider that recent negotiations will lead lo the conclusion of peace Ireatics which will establish amicable relations between the peoples who were former allies in thc war against Fascism, and will they remove the danger of an outbreak of war on the part of ihc former Axis countries?

On thc direct subjccl lo what is the greatest threat to world peace, Beautiful Old Water City of Venice Longs for the Tourists of Yesteryears By JOHN P. MCKNIGHT (For Hal Btfyle) Venice, Oct. 29 — Vcniec its passage. Sincerely yours, E. R. Brown County Supervisor of .b'Uuculiuu. the Soviet leader answered out- „.,,. excellence rightly: "Churchill and others of - • - - longs for the tourists of a, "olden yesteryear. A nostalgic "now, before the /ar. . ." is (he invariable conver- salional gambil of all who, in happier days, catered to the thousands from every land lured to this water-set jewel among cities. The withered old lady in St. Mark's Square who peddles tiny cornucopias of grain for the pirouetting pigeons, thc ancient photographer who for a few lire will picture you smothered in the pigeons, thc venerable guides with their encyclopedic lore about. Iho 120 "doges" (dukes) of the Vcnc-i lian republic, and gondoliers nodi ding beneath thc bridge of signs . ... all shake their heads sadly and say: "If only Ihc tourists would come back!" Here, as in perhaps no other Italian city spared Iho'devastation of war, there is hitler, articulate, highly personalized rcscnemcnt against Bcnito Mussolini and his Fascisls for taking Italy into World "War II. That is partly because Venice, historically international of outlook, finds repugnant thc narrow nationalism of Fascist adventure; but more because the Venetians, practical folk, have been sorely wounded in their pockclbooks. Venice is the tourist's paradise historical records, the riginalily of its life and customs, the play of .he water which reflects and multiplies perspectives, forms and colors all render a stay here varied and extremely pleasant." Thc chief marvel of this city of marvels is lhat it exists at all. • Necessity has mothered many great" things, but few such as this refuge among thc watqrs thc early Venitians made for themselves against the tide of barbarian invasion Washing southward. Even the much-traveled must be amazed that upon this archipelago of 118 small islands, many of them no better than mud flats, man's hands have raised immense, ornate, enduring edifices sufficient to house nearly 300,000 persons; and that, because there is not earth enough to support thc turning wheel, man's ingenuity has interconnected them by bridge and boat. Even the blase must own to wonder at this renewed proof of man's'.adaptability to elements not his own, at thc sight of alj a great city's travel and transport handled by aquatic conveyance, at thc view of tony tots perched precariously atop narrow gondolas, tooling them along with all the nonchalance of earth-bound youngsters riding bicycles. like mind in Ihc Uniled Slalcs and England." Thus il was revealed again what a menace Stalin thinks thc former prime ministers to world peace. It also shows thai he-still believes Churchill has followers in the United Stales and Greal Britain and Uuil they aru ruil Ihrealu. Guidebooks err on thc side of exaggeration slightly, if at all, when they call this "an extraordinary city, unique in the world," and odd: "The purity of its atmosphere, free of dust, thc ii-nportan.ee and number of its nomumcnts, the extraordinary richness of thc works yf art . . . the grentijeau of U'.' A quiddity thai may win a drink at a bar: How many "canals" arc there in Venice? Answer: Not 160, as most guidebooks will tell you, but just one, the Grand canal, which serpentines through Venice from Piazzale Roma (where the automobile highway ends) to St. Mary's Square. All thc other waterways arc, strictly, "rii" the plural of the old Italian word meaning "rivulet" or brooks" which persists in the Spanish .. s as the specific word for Tired of Labor Unions^orker Starts His Own By FRANCIS E. BARDEN Ponca City, Okla., Oct. 29 — (/P)— George Biggs grew so tired of labor and management quarreling, he said today, that he quit a top job with a $100,000,000 oil firm to starl a union ba^ed on salesmanship and cooperation. 'There's nothing this country needs as badly as it needs cooperation," said Biggs, former sales promotion manaacr ior thc Conti- ncnlal Oil Company. "Quarreling and arguing, one group shouting demands about its rights and thc other shouting back — all this has been going on ior a long lime and nol much has re- suited but trouble and the promise of more trouble to come.' ' In a statement outlining the aims of his new union, which Biggs said he is starling with his own funds, he declared: "It's time lo slop fighting and slart cooperating. I'm going to do something about it. I think I'm in a very good position to slarl such a movement. I've been a salesman for 30 years and this is a job for salesmen, "Salesmen are not 'management,' nor arc they 'labor.' They are halfway between these two groups who have argued so bitterly in thc past and have accomplished little beyond gelling a lot of people thoroughly angry at each other." Biggs said thai salesmen gel heller pay, belter working conditions and more security in their jobs than any other class of em- ployes because of "Iheir peaceful, friendly, coopcralivc methods" and added that he believed all other workers could use thu same methods. "I propose lo organize a union of all employed people. As soon as this new union can gain a majority in any single plant I plan lo claim bargaining rights under existing laws," Biggs explained. "When we get those bargaining' rights wc shall then go to thc employer and sell him a program of cooperation in which he can make money and we can draw higher wages. Wc shall not present him with a set of demands but with a profit-making program. Wc shsll not make threats. Wc shall not make promises." He said that any person working for a wage, salary or commission could join and declared he alone was financing thc early slops in organization of ihc union. He added lhal as thc organization grows, extension activities will be Jnanced by dues paid by the members. As soon as six locals are formed, Biggs added, he will call a national convention to adopt a constitution and by-laws and elect member j.

Churchill in Reply to Stalin London, Oct. 20 —(UP)— Winston Churchill replied today vo charges by Marshal Stalin that he was one of thc 'incendiaries of a new war" by saying: "I have regard and respect for Premier Stalin and will always remember all wc went through together.' ' Stalin's criticism of Churchill was contained in replies to 31 questions submitted to the head of Ihc Sovicl Union by Hugh Bailli president of thc United Press. Churchill's statement, issued from Weslcrham, Kent, continued: "I also wish to see the Russian people, who fought so bravely for their native land, safe, glorious and happy. "It was always my desire ihal when Iho war was won Ihe So- vicl government should play one of the leading parts in thc rebuilding of our shattered world. "By thc Anglo-Russian treaty, made when I was prime minister in 1941, we arc bound nol to interfere in each other's internal affairs or systems of society. "I do not sec why wo cannot all be friends and help each other and thus advance thc whole basic standard of livelihood of thc broad masses of people of ovory land. "I am glad to sec Premier Stalin's statement about Russian forces in occupied territories which he mentions. But even GO divisions on war footing would, of course, greatly exceed British and American forces in cnemy-occu pied territory in Europe'. hold front with an accusation that the administration had created an, artificial sugar shortage by inept acts. Chairman Lucas (D-I11) of -Che Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee said thc Republican National Committee has given Senator Langcr (R-ND) $6,500 to campaign for re-election despite his "confirmed, unrcgcncratc isolationism." "This is more than the commit- IPO has seen fit to turn over to any other candidate," Lucas said in a statement. He recalled that Langcr was one of the two senators who voted against American participation in the United Nations. "Isolationism as deeply ingrained as that harbored by many among the Republican leadership cannot be successfully hidden," Lucas said. "Only a few weeks ago Senator Taft let his real sentiments by known when he made his astonishing statement on behalf of thc convicted Nazi war criminals. "Now, by its largesse to Senator Langcr, the Republican Cam- jaign Committee also has shown hat rank osolationism and sympathy for Nazis is no bar to the parly's support." Speaker Rayburn (D-Tcxl said in a radio address last night it ,vould be "calamitous" if Republicans gained control of thc House with a Democrat still president. Remarking that they did so in 1918 when President Wilson was in the While House, Rayburn declared: "In that election, politics drove a wedge between a great nation and its destiny. Wc cannot afford lo hayc that wedge driven again." "A Republican majority in Congress," he asserted, "will tear the government apart and our hopes of peace and prosperily with it." Hep. Jenkins (H-Oliio), chairman of thc Republican Food Study Committee, issued a statement asserting that "imperious acts by the Democratic administration alone are responsible i'or 'che absence of sugar from American tables when 'there is no shortage •of isugur,"
