WILSON New York, Oct. 29 — (UP> — Republicans in this state arc campaigning today for re-election of Gov. Thomas E. Dcwcy by a landslide sufficient to start the Dewcy- for-president boom all over again. There is a Republican tradition against renominating a loser for president, and Dewey lost to the late Franklin D. Roosevelt an 1944 by 99 electoral votes to 432. But governors of New York also, always have advantage of proven vote appeal in the nation's most populous state. It Dcvtey is defeated for governor one week from today, he is out of the 1948 picture. But if Dewey comes up with a big, fat lead he will have taken a long step toward the 1948 G.O.P. nomination. Dewey is opposed by Sen. James M. Mead, Democrat, of Buffalo, N Y. Mead ran ahead of the slate ticket when he was a short term candidate for the Senate in 1939. Six years ago he ran ahead of Mr. Roosevelt in New York state. But this time the odds appear to be against him although Democratic campaign managers predict their ticket will carry the state by 200,000 votes. Democrats arc pounding hard at Dewey on charges thnt he seeks re-election as governor only to further his chances for the Republican, presidential nomination. The governor is noncommittal. Asked during his upstate campaign swing whether he expected to f.ervc the This Curious World By William Ferguson IN MEDIEVAL- TIMES, IT WAS BELIEVED THAT •BLACK CATS WERE W/TCHES IN DIS- THAT KILLIN& A CAT DID NOT DESTROY THE WITCH, SINCE WITCHES COULD TAKE CM THE BODY OF A CAT COPR. 1946 OY NEA SERVICE.

The Razorbacks had a Ugh workout yesterday as they tried U shake off a letdqwn which cos them an upset at the hands of Olc Miss last week, but beginning to day, Head Couch John Barnhll has promised, the going will b< rough on the drill field. Fullback John Shaddox is tin only Porker injured in the Olo Mis game who m;iy miss action tlii week. Tailback Aubrey Fowler nnc 5uard Steed White were hurl last Saturday but should be ready to play this week. At College Station today Coach Homer Norton was reshuffling his starting backfield and promoting "B" squad members to bolster his varsity manpower. Willie Zapalac, regular fullback, was injured in the Gay lor game arid may see little action against Arkansas. He probably will be replaced by Ralph Daniel or Dennis Andricks. Buryl Baty, passing quarterback, Iv.is a slight neck injury but will play against Arkansas.

Democratic campaigners arc on the defensive, notably because of their alliance with the ict'l wing. The Socialistic Liberal party and the American Labor parly, wnich frequently follows the Communist party line, formally have endorsed Mead, Herbert H. Lehman, who .is the Democratic senatorial candidate, -and some other Derr.«cniUc candidates. But what seems to have hurl was the endorsement of Mead, Lehman and other Democrats by the Communist party. Both Mead and Lehman have re- puclialcd communism rind ihe support of Communists. But ihe Co nunists remain with the Demo- Tats, regardless. Democrats here find themselves n Ihe position of a minority party which cannot win without left winu •support. Franklin D.

One of th factors will be the extent to whic normally Democratic New Yor cily Catholics have been offended oy Communist and other left wing activity for the Democratic ticket. Although Republicans are blistering the Democrats for their left wing connections, the G.O.P. has a touch of the lefl wing in Brooklyn.

Aus- is Ihe captain of a ship —i int! Ihe commander" of a naval vcs- fg\ whose rcsponsibilllv is lo the Lntlrc nation.-The captain is- accountable for the safety of passengers, crew and cargo, and for Ihe discipline and efficiency of the men under his command. Commodore Manning, a veteran of two wars and hero of several sea rescues, has explained his stand thus: "The captain of a ship has only one loyally and lhal is lo his ship. No man can serve Iwo mr.slcrs. No captain can be sub- '" 1 " 10 dclc8Bllon The American declaration, it was learned, will not be a direct answer lo the address by Foreign Minister V. M. Mololov. However, il will constitute a statement- of American policy on questions raised by Molotov. H was understood that the American policy will conslilulc an offorl lo "tnke the ball away from Molotov" rather than to reply to his speech point by point. Austin's address has been sub- Jectcd to the dictate of a union del- ftcl to substantial revision in ihe 1) u^cgatc whose rank may be inferior +§ that of captain." , This stand is not only li-aditional. but sensible. It takes no great imag innt.inn'to conceive of instances in which a captain's first duty of carrying out union policies fa dutv on whose performance his job would depend) could mean a complete breakdown of shipboard discipline and consequent danger to passcnccrs and property. Yet the MMPU has insisted not .t ' only on a "closed shop" aboard ship bul also on' Ihe right to assign what officers il pleases lo any vcs- if.cl. The question ot wages has been secondary lo these demands. The ship operators have agreed lo give Ihe union preference in filling all vacancies cxcepl Ihosc of masler and, wilh the same exception, to hire only union members in good standing. The operation of luxury liners like the America is not the most lucrative business in the world. Because of pay differentials between the Uniicd States and foreign merchant marines, a government sub- is necessary to permit the " ~ to compete in light of Molotov's proposal for world disarmament and his sharp criticism of American and Britisn policy. Australia, making the first reply to Molotov s speech, branded Russia's charges that revision of the veto rule would undermine the Uniicd Nations as "serious and totally unjustified." N. J .O .Makin, Australian clclc- jgale and first of today's speakers before the general assembly, revised his prepared address to reply to the Russian statement and to accuse the Soviet Union of blocking the organization of trusteeships Artie Shaw's Latest Divorce Will Not Be Recognized Hollywood, Oct. 30 --(UP)— The District attorney's office refused today too recognize the ^Mexican marriage of former Bandleader Artie Shaw and Novelist Kathleen, Winsor, but declined to comment on the possibility of )egul action.

Austin called the Molotov speech "a smart, tough speech" which contained "some constructive things." l But the British wore bitter about the speech and said the Russian foreign minister had marred ihe promised harmony generated in the opening week of assembly sessions. Austin reportedly planned to stick close to his original speech — u pica for Big Five unanimity nnd an explanation of the American support for the Big Five veto -power, as:W,ell as the^U.

Diplomats of several other nations considered the speech highly disturbing. Some were said to "eel it might plunge the assembly into the same gloomy atmosphere produced at the Paris conference by the clash between the Soviet and the Anglo-American blocs.

The prewar Russian .infantry division was about 15.000 men. Some later went to 25.000. There is no way of our knowing, but on the basis of Stalin's statement the number of Red troops in -middle Europe would seem to run from 900,000 to 1,200,000, still 100,000 to 40,000 more than the combined ditional in Greece and the Middle East.

At the same lime, the agency ruled out another general increase in cotton textile prices in November, but opened the way for a new boost in the nation's shoe bill. Prices of domestically-tanned calfskin were raised nine jjcr cent. This was expected to mean a four to five per cent retail boost in the 50,000,000 pairs of calfskin shoes sold annually in this country. OPA did not officially label its new decontrol list as part of the long-awaited master order, but an official said it could be regarded as the first of several parts.

Today's order also decontrolled heaters, non-automatic toasters, hot plates, electric heating pads, electric shavers, household glassware including tumblers and dishes, lamp shades, coffee makers luggage, Venetian blinds, window shades and rollers, ironing boards, washboards, bicycles, tricycles and scooters.

At the close of trading yesterday it had hit a low of 29.15 a pound, ,a drop of approximately $50 a 500 pound bale. The liquidation of a single "long" account, in which a New Orleans trader was reputed to have held contracts for hundreds of thousands of bales, was held officially responsible for the original cotton break.

Lewis, who is demanding a new wage contract for his 400,000 United Mine Workers. ; Ross told reporters he had no comment on a report that Attorney General Tom Clark had disagreed with the position of Interior Secretary Krug that the existing coal pact could not be reopened as Lewis insists. The New York Times said today that Clark had prepared an opinion upholding Lewis' stand and White House advisers were cerned over the possibility con- that Senator Kilgore (D-WVa) might be defeated as a result of Lewis' op- ' position.

The order was not expected to hall the shipment of dependents who already have orders. Ihe army has a backlog of 7,000 persons' now awaiting transportation overseas.

This is everyone's chance to do a little community proinotion work which could have lasting benefits." OPA officials declined to predict decontrol of either soap or paint as a result. But they said higher prices will probably result to permit manufacturers to absorb higher costs of linseed oil. OPA said the recent price slump on the cotton exchanges would make it unnecessary to boost cotton textile prices in November. In the past four months, OPA raised these prices 22.5 per cent over June 3D levels to reflect higher raw cotton prices. Ceilings were raised 'iO per cent on a couple of cotton items, however, lo spur production.
