The Singapore's announcers ure the .feather sort, the canaries which carouse vhrough an evening of music and dancing and go to bed at xhe uncanaryish hour of 4 a. m., when the place is closed and the customers chased out. The reason for the seasonal change at the Singapore is that the canaries had to take a vacation all summer. They cannot oxistin air- conditioned premises without some feathery version of a mink coat, •MlCan If your nose some- * times fills up with stuffy transient congestion-put a few drops of Va-tro-nol In each nostril.

So Carl Erbe and Joe Howard, who own the joint, sent the birds oft in luxurious insh- ion to some local counterpart of the Hartz Mountains for the hot weather sojourn. Having spent a happy summer there oiling up their song apparatus, they came back to the Singapore and the air- conditioning was turned off. Last season's prize singing trio, named Caruso, Melchoir and Pons, have been joined by a new trio, Crosby, Sinatra and Como. For the past three months these birds of a feather have trained together for the winter season in the hope maybe that some movie scout might drop in .and sign them up. Their songs will range from popular 10 opcratic..and all rights have been cleared with ASCA Pistrano. One parenthetical item about the Singapore: When it opened last year, the management decided it would be fitting to have an oriental yqung lady as headwait- ress arid hostess, to wander about the tables in exotic costume and Chinese accent. The >'9ung lady who got the job looked nicely oriental but her accent wasn't entirely to the satisfaction of the local Chinese. A chorus girl at the China I Do, a Broadway celar majoring in Chinese floor shows, stopped in and was brought over to meet the brand new Singapore Sal. Sal put on nor thickest inflections for the benefit of the oriental chorine, who. listened a minute and then said, sweetly: "I'm from Union City — where are you from?' ' Sal stumblingly mentioned something about Shanghai and Hong Kong, but it was evident that she had her roots sunk solidly in the Bronx, for in her excitement she forgot her accent completely. That was the end of Singapore Sal, who had simply wanted' a Broadway career even if she had to slant her eye makeup a little. The last heard, she was back in the Bronx, probably practicing up on her Parisian inflections. Explanation of Proposed Initiated Act 294 : (First of Thi -> _ - _.^_ - __ "in 1933-347T total of 100.-169 chll- drcn enrolled in the first grndp in Arkansas schools. Twelve years later, in 1944"»!5. only 10,175 graduated from high school. What happened to the other 90,14? The Arkansas Education Association believes that a major part of the answer to that question is Arkansas' unwieldy school districl system. '> Arkansas had 2179 school dis- ricts on July 1,1946. Of these only 314 had more than 350 children, .caving 1865 with less than 350 chil* drcn. Of those 1865 districts, only 249 attempt to offer any high school education lo their children, nnd 118 of these high schools are not of the state's in Polished Solid Brass TABLE LAMP 12.75 \ Three Way FLOOR LAMP 15.95 Montgomery Ward Order Office 212 S. Main Phone 1080 accredited. This means that 2179 districts, 1734 cannot offer '.heir children an accredited 12- year program, and 1616 cannot offer any education past the clemen- '.ary grades. As an attack on this situation, '.he AEA has sponsored Initiated Act No. 1, which will be voted up LED OTHER STATES Pennsylvania, of all the states, contributed the biggest percentage of its 1940 population to the armed forces— 10.44 per cent of its total.

I Thus the number of districts in the state would be cut :Crom :i!79 to about 388. Over each of the newly consolidated districts would be a five-man board, to be appointed by the county board of education to serve until the next regular school election when residents of the districl will elect an all-new board. The county board thus created and the county supervisor arc charged with the responsibility of studying the entire school program of the county, and, if in the opinion of the county board, the needs of the children in any portion of the ncwly-c"r -ated district can best be served by annexing that territory to an existing district, it may do so with the consent of that district. "The act has one basic purpose," the AEA says, "to give every child access to a free accresited high school. The act docs not abolish existing elementary schools. Neither does it destroy community centers, but seeks lo improve them by improving the little school. "When a parent pays a school tax it should entitle the children to free schooling from grade one through grade i2 without addition al cost, but this isn't true in Ar kansas and can never be true so long is we retain, the present smal" school district organization."

Wartime draft examinations rejected 11.2 per cent of Arkansas compared to 8.4 per cent for the registrants (for all causes), as compared to 8.4 per cent for the nation, and the AEA regards the stale's educational system as partly responsible for this high percentage.

The citizens of Arkansas now seem determined to correct this situa tion.

The court of 10 colonels began its deliberations after hearing the chief prosecutor, Lt. Col .James Gleason, demand a conviction, charging that Watson was "playing for big slakes," and "fully realized he was taking a risk of punish% vncnt if apprehended." Watson's atlorneys had based their, defense upon attempts to show that high-ranking officer, including a general, had shared valuables found in Kronbcrg castle j and that Watson thus saw nothing wrong in his own actions.

They base their views on the fact that if prices of the fiber crop go very much lower, the government will be required by law to step in and call a halt, so to speak. Wartime farm price laws direct .he government to assure cotton growers "parity" for their crop. Parity is a price defined as equally fair to producers and users of cotton. At the present time, the parity price of 15-16. inch middling cotton- the grade used for market quotations — is 27.23 cents a pound. Despite a break of nearly 10 cents since the commodity reached a 26- year peak of 38.93 cents on Oct. 2, cotton still is bringing nearly two cents above parity. The government has two mclh- t at prices riot less than'parity, and 2) granting loans to growers at 92.5 pec cent of parity — or 24.38 cents for the market quotation grade — on cotton withheld from the market. The loan program provides what might be called an absolute floor or minimum price. Should the market price drop below the loan rate, growers naturally would place their cotton under the loan. Buyers would have to meet the • word atlenzione. of democracy.'

Now anyone coming back is consoled with: "Poor guy! Isn't there any way you can get out of it?" For thousands of Americans, frightened by talcs of housing shortages, food scarcities and high prices, have developed an allergy lo the thought of returning to their native land. They are afraid to exchange their niche in Europe or Ihe Far East, whatever its discomforts, for the uncertainties and inconveniences of life in Manhattan or Dubuquc. They are the nucleus of a new class of self-exiles, fearful innocents abroad. Well, there is something in Uicu fear, exaggerated as it is. Coming home lo America after a long absence is a mixture of 'terror anc gladness. . In so many ways it is like the land il was, and .yet in other ways so different — this strange new United Stales lhal has emerged from tho alarums of war for ai uneasy excursion into peace.

Byrnes said today he will ask the Big Four foreign ministers to reach agreement on Germany's general frontiers during their pro- liminay discussions at New York on the German peace treaty. He told a press conference that agreement among the United Slates, Britain, Russia and France is necessary on several basic mailers, including occupational problems and frontiers, before intclli- gcnl work can be started on peace terms.

Although the price is still well above the loan rate, many growers already have started putting their cotton under loan, in the hope there will be a price upturn later. The effectiveness of a government offer to buy cotton at the iull parity price would be governed by the amount it offered to buy and by the amount of money it has. available for such operations. Inasmuch as the Agriculture Department's banking agency — the Commodity Credit Corporation — has largely liquidated pre-war holdings of commodities, it offers nave ample funds. : 'Because this year's crop was' a small one and pre-war reserves have been reduced sharply, government purchase and farmer storage, under loan of any considerable portion .of' unsold'' -cotton " wotjld_, • soon create a tight supply situation for manufacturers.

In August, rayon, one of cotton's principal competitors in the horte market, was priced at. about 26 cents a pound compared, wilh 42 cents i'or cotton of equivalent fiber. The price spread did not hurt cotton as long as rayon production was curtailed during the war.
