This season officials have called an average of 21.7 penalties per game and enforced 15.3 of them after the offended team had a chance to decline as compared to 12.0 enforced penalties in 1945 games. . . "It's simple," explains one student of statistics. "It's a close race and there's cpmpetilion on the tbamfe so everybody- is working hard ,011 every play. You don't get penalized unless you do something." , . . . Salvador Luttcrolh, presumably the guy who is trying to get Joe Louis to fight in Mexico this winter (he monopolizes boxing there just like the Pasqucls monopolize baseball) also plans to take ice hockey south of the border. Lutteroth is due in New York soon to collect technical information— and maybe some boxing contracts. Steel Plato In a recent Big Six football At 30 the slim good-looking actor was equally versatile in his various pro-radio jobs as he now seems .to be • in his many radio characters.iHe's been a newspaper reporter, boxer, sailor, a former Army pilot, member of the French foreign legion, a veteran of El Alamein and other North Africa battles, is a creditable artist and currently is writing and illustrating a children's book. His Army fling career came in 1937, when- he quit covering sports for the San Francisco Chronicle. He enlisted at Randolph Field, Tex., but a crash five and a half months later sent him to a hospital .and gave him a wired-up leg which still bothers him a bit. After returning to civilian life, Harris took a crack at radio acting in Chicago, was modestly successful, and went on to New York, where he'was doing nicely until war broke out. Turned down by the services because of previous Army injuries. Stacy signed up with the American Volunteer Group and went to Africa as an •ambulance driver attached to the Fighting French, later becoming a dispatch rider with Ihe Foreign Le- 'gion, where he remained until he contracted malaria and was invalided home. Well again, he went back to radio; struggled along on moderately good pay until his appearances in "A Sound of Hunting." Then the Methodist Are Out to Upset Razorbacks Fayetleville. Nov. 16 — (/P) — Southern Methodist University set out today to upscl Ihe Southwest Conference grid title cart of the Arkansas Razorbacks and were promised aid of bad weather in their undertaking. The Mustangs, who haven't won a circuit game all season, had psychology in their favor. Under- rtogs by one to two touchdowns and with nothing 'to lose, they could salvage something from a dreary season by knocking the Porkers out, of the chance to win or tie for the championship. A victory would give Arkansas at least n share' of its first crown since 1936 and top off a rags-lo- richcs drive of a team which i'in- ished in the cellar last year and was picked to do the same Ihis fall.

Plalo didn't even blink and the other guy apologized for his hasty action. . . "That's all right, podner," Andros told him (in approved cowboy language), "That's the way to play football." . . . Later Plato explained: "That hurt him a lot more than if I'd cocked a Sunday on him and it didn't cost us as many yards." Weak End Items The first Northwestern - Notre Dame game in 1889 drew 200 spec talors and produced Ihe first Irish viclory over a college rival. . . Is Sriffis, who caplained the Kenora Thistles when they won the Stanley Cup victory, dropped in on a Rangcrs's game the other night and concluded he liked modern fast, wide open hockey better than the old blood-and-thundcr game. . .

The state patrol sent n laboratory technician hero to study the charred debris of three buildings burned yesterday in the latest of the series of' fires. Authorities hoped that from his findings they could learn something about the criminals they are up against. .Slate police said the firebugs may be opcralin g from freight trains on a railroad which runs through most of the afflicted towns. Police believed the ganfj has been making its get-aways by hopping freight trains during the blazes. ' During all Ihe fires, robberies were allemii'.e'l while residents loft their homes to help put out the fires. In all cases .however, the loot was negligible. The fires all have been similar, having been started by the ignition of oil or gasoline.

And unless Ihc: country's industrial atmosphere has miraculously cleared before January, it will be among Ihc first items on the agenda. There are hopeful prospects that the mailer may be approached in a more calm and sensible way than has been evident in recent attempts. There will be bitter complaints from leaders of organized labor, of course. Bui it is possible that these complaints will have a more moderate lone. Union officials musl see in Ihe heavy Republican vole a demand, if not for corrective legislation, at least for different approach to our labor, problems. The PAC's failure lo gle'ct many qf ils friends arid to ' pitfge'inany W .its designated- enemies suggesls some departure within the ranks of labor from the slales selcclcd by labor's political mentors. At the same lime, the Republicans should be less inclined lo pass any punitive laws. They will be more than ever anxious to keep Iheir labor friends and gain new ones, now lhal the vole has shown a break in labor's almosl solid sup port of the Dcmocralic Parly dur ing the pasl 16 years. Senator Ball of Minnesota ha: indicated not only Ihe subslance of legislation thai will be introduced but also something of the strategy to be employed in a bid for While House approval. He favors a num )jcr of separalc pieces of legislalioi rather than an omnibus bill as at obvious way of avoiding a blankc velo such as slymlcd Ihe Case Bill. ' Mr. Ball has scheduled some old familiar Horns for the reconsideration of his colleagues. He would • like lo set up belter government ' meditation machinery for labor disputes, with compulsory 'cooling off periods. He favors rovisi9n of the Wagner Acl lo outlaw political and sympat yih saclrsdnk"ncMFWYP sympathy strikes and secondary boycotts, and to give management a right to appeal unfair labor practices. 'Along more controversial lines he advocates a ban on Ihc closed shop. He also hopes to find some legislative insurance againsl nationwide strikes in vital industries. t Scnalor Ball will find wide agreement with his expressed hope thai Dig, problem of labor legislation will not become striclly partisan. To avoid lliis he favors talking the whole subject over with President Truman before any legislation is in troducccl, instead of risking the c motional and divisive process of velo and overriding. The manner of procedure which ' Mr. Ball has oiitlincd promises a sensible approach to our gravest domestic problem. II is Ihc firsl big , chance lhal Ihc resurgent Republicans will have to show what they can do. Both parties in Congress will have the heavy responsibility of considering Ihis subjecl wilhoul rancor. Whal Ihc industrial crisis needs most is a change of heart, all down the line. The logical place for thai change lo appear is in Congress.

PRICE 5c COPY CIO Purge of Communists May End Party Hopes By LYLE C. WILSON Washinglon. Nov. 18 — (UP) — HID Presidcnl Philip Murray's cf- torls lo drive fellow travelers from power in CIO unions threatened today lo wreck Communist plans for a new popular-front third parly. American Communisls placed Ihe nowcrful CIO organizations in industrial stales high on Iheir lisl of elements to pul bone and muscle in Iheir national political program. They intended Ihe Nov. 5 general election to be the lasl in which Ihey would lag along wilh Ihe Dcmo- cralic parly. Eugene Dennis, general secre- lary of Ihc Communist party of the Uniled Slales, laid the third party program before the Commu- nisl National Committee in a closed meeting last July. The text of his report has been published in the Communist monthy pamph- lel, political affairs. He enlarged on Ihe third parly program over Ihe weekend in an interview published by the Sunday Worker ,Com- munisl organ published in Now York. • • "The Communist parly," Dennis said, "will promole a progressive realignment leading lo a new mass people's parly. Therein lies Ihc ,vay lo counteract and reverse the ccenl Republican clccloral vic- ory." Dennis' new mass parly would be built around the American abor Parly in New York Stale. The ALP casl more than 430,000 'Oles in Ihis month's general elcc- ion. For one of their two stale- .vidc candiclalcs in New York, the iommunists casl approximately 10,000 votes. But the Communisls have no such ready-made parly nor strength outside New York Stale. Elsewhere they would be dependent on combinations with other left wing groups. They have picked Murray's CIO, the Political Action ^ommitlco, the National Citizens Political Aclion Committee and the Independent Citizens Committee and a few others for combining purposes. The Independent Citizens Committee is the organization of which Harold L. Ickes was executive di- 31 Degrees Last Night Is Coldest of Season Last night proved lo be the coldest of the current season In this section with a low of 31 degrees, according to figures at the Experiment Stallon.

Jt Murray, boots-Communists out or CIO po'sitfbns "of power and forbids Moscow-inclined area councils of the CIO to endorse Communist political policies, any third parly 'combination of the CIO wilh the Communists would be close to impossible. Without the CIO, the Communists might set up a third parly bul outside New York Slale il would be a puny outfit. That is one reason the Communists in the CIO will fight ; any purge effort like a defense of Stalingrad. If they are licked in Ihc CIO, Ihey are just aboul licked everywhere. In his Ihird parly discussion before Ihe Communisl National Committee, Denis said: "The fact is that a new regrouping of the people's forces is already laking place, accclcralcd by Ihe political activities of the CIP, PAC, ICC and NCPAC, and of all Ihc pro-Roosevell peace forces." That was before this month's election, and Dennis warned his comrades that Communists should jo along wilh olher lefl wingers .his year, even if some of Ihe latter were whal he regarded as wavering middle-of-the-road characlers who couldn't wallop the parly plal- Form. He reporled lhal Ihe new third party should seek out and cultivate the followers of Ickcs and Henry A. Wallace, although Den- his did not have much hope for those two former cabincl colleagues themselves. Whal Ihc Communists aclually think of Ickcs and Wallace is that they are honest progressive fellows who arc confused in their political thinking. Anyway, that is how Dennis described them. Dennis .thinks Ickcs and Wallace arc wrong in opposing new third parly plans. He says Ihey and others have Iheir U.S. Rapped by Laborites London, Nov. 18 — (UP) —Labor parly rebels charged in Ihc House of Commons loday that there has been "a complete and exclusive Anglo-American ticup" on foreign policy and that the government has abandoned ils pre-election pledges to pursue a policy of xriendship and mcdialion between Russia and America. The allack on government policy was led by R. H. S. Grossman, one of the leaders of th e lefl-wing laborile bloc which forced the debate on the issue. Labor candidates before the election last year, he said, agreed that a Conservative viclory would cause Britain lo drift into close association wilh Ihe Uniled Slales and produce a division of the world into hvo ideological blocs. He said that candidates promised thai a Labor government would prevent such a division of the world. Government whips have ordered all labor party members to attend the debate. The govcrnmcnl wants to show the world lhal Britain is overwhelmingly behind Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin's policy. R. H. S. Grossman, leader of the dissatisfied laborities who submitted the amendment to the king's speech which will be debated, in- dicaled the dcbalc may end wilh- oul any decisive formal aclion. If the amendment is put lo a vole—possibly al the government's initiatie—the Labor party leaders arc reportedly determined to call upon members to'demonstrate their confidence in Bevin. In the annual commons debate on Ihe king's speech, a protesting minority often withdraws a critical amendment after-starting ils case in formal debale. The amend.ment to be debated objects to British policy as being too firmly allied with American policy. Its sponsors, fear the Attlee government -is . veering too.. much toward the United States, at the expense of Soviet-Brilish coopcra- lion. The protesting laborities disagree with their leaders on three other specific issues—Spain, Greece and Palestine. o ~ 8 Meet Violent Deaths in State Over Weekend By United Press Al least eight persons died-violently in Arkansas over the weekend. ..-'-, H.

If he hopes to win it, he may have to drop many past proposals. Democratic leaders, still groggy from the Republican election landslide, have delayed any move to organize their forces for their new role in the minority. They apparently are agreed, however, that Mr. Truman will write the official party program in his state of the union message. They seemingly have no intention of attempting to fix objectives, as the Republicans of both House and Senate already have done. Mr. Truman has given no concrete indication yet of the direction he intends to pursue in his recommendations, except to urge that the legislative and executive branches cooperate for the welfare of the nation.

By JAMES MARLOW Washinglon, Nov. 18 (/I 1 ).— The Army has called a hall to shipping overseas the families of enlisted army men in the four lowest grades: Sergeant, corporal, first class private, and private. Here is an explanation of this move and what it means — the announcement, was made Nov. 9 — as given by officers al the War Department: Under a Ipng-staiiding law all commissioned officers and sergeants of the three top grades — master, staff and technical — arc "ntii'ed to housing or money lo pay for il, even when overseas. The army has been sending over lo them — when they requcsled il — tneir wives and children. II will conlinuc to do so when there's shipping lo carry them' and houses can be found for them. Bul the men in the tour lowest grades — sergeant, corporal, first class private and privale — don't come undo r Ihe 1 a w. Which means: They're not e n t i I led under law lo housing or money to pay for it. But the army had been sendin. Iheir families over, loo, when Ihey asked for them to be sent.

So if Ihc army finds a reason foi nol being able lo send families overseas — as il says il has now — then il can slop sending fami lies of Ihc men in the four lowes grades. And this is Ihe reason the armj says il has lo slop il: 1. Housing is scarce overseas And in Ihis country building ma leiials — which could be sent over seas lo make housing — is scarce 2. Because of limiled funds, Uv army doesn'l have enough monc; lo equip enough ships for movin, the families — even if there wer housing overseas. S o there's backlog ol waiting families.

The proceedings Avere 1 designed to prevent the nationwide soft coal mining shutdown threatened for Thursday. A Justice Department spokesman merely said that the charges upon which the government- ..based its , petition would be made available as quickly as possible. The injunction was obtained as miners answered the government's "stay-at-work" plea with wildcat walkouts in many areas. It was presumed that the government' suit was based upon the contention of Secretary of Interior J. A. Krug, backed up by Clark, that Lewis could not legally terminate his present contract with" the government.

New Deal senators and representatives, on the other hand, have seized on a phrase in Mr. Truman's truce message, in which he urged continuance of "a progressive concept of government," as a sign that he intends to continue to follow the Roosevelt line.

Bul I can what happened to the country gen eral slore, the forum of the common people, the conversation fountain where they settled Ihc world's woes, underwrote the local slalesrnan's errors, bel on Ihe neighborhoods faslcst plow-puller, and charted the fair .fair fulure. ' They look Ihe old country general store and moved il lo Ihc cily. They called il a "bar" and made il co-educalional. They took if off the crossroads and put it on a side street and marked it with a mortgaged neon sign. They pul in a mirrow where Ihey used lo slock the calico. In the center of the mirror Ihey stuck a sign: "In God we trust — all others-cash." And if they were real up-to-date somebody from the management %yould scrawl on the inner consolation room: "Kilroy was here." They moved out the snuff nnd the chaw tobacco plus and installed delicti — if there is claim lo have solved in their place a box full of two-bit cigars and cork-lipped cigarcls on the bosom of a girl who was killing lime before Helen Hayes forsook the Ihealcr. They trundled out the cider jugs, loo, and stuck in a lot of fancy colored bolllcs — guaranlecd 90 proof if you don'l 0911111 the waler. The proprjetor quit being an unofficial justice of the peace and became a smooth diplomat and learned a couple of French phrases. He burned up the old cash drawer and boughl a shiny new cash register. He kepi close to it. Nobody played its music but himself. He quit calling in his friends to help setlle the arguments. He bought a baseball bat. People didn't hear any more about the corn wilting "in the North 40 acres." They listened to the sleek chic secretary say, "boys you know my hair doesn't look nice — I had to put the iron to it." And then four hours later they had to play the match game to see who would have get her home. Nobody talked to call a car to any more about the Republicans is over a quiet move by some colleagues to sidetrack Senator Aiken (R-Vt) from Ihe chairmanship of Ihc Labor Committee. This group wants it to go to Senator Ball (R-Minn). Aikcn has frequently supported Iab9r's viewpoint and fought last spring against the Case strike control bill which Congress eventually passed but President Truman vetoed. G.O.P. leaders in both House and Senate are on record for passage of some new bill along that line and are counting on substan- lial Democratic support High Court Gets Election Contests Little Rock, Nov. 18 — (/P) — The Arkansas Supreme Court took under submission today a motion to dismiss an appeal involving election contesls arising from the July 30 Democratic primaries in Garland county. The motion was filed by Rep. James R. Campbell, counsel for Ihe regular Democralic nominees who subsequently were defeated in the general election by the same candidates Ihey had bcalcn in the primaries. Campbell's motion sought three things: 1. To set aside an order advancing Ihe case for early dccisipn. (II originally had been advanced for ' public: wel/arerand-safet^I : In his order, Goldsbbrough provided that the defendants "and each of them and their agents, servants, employes and attorneys, ' and all persons in active concert or participation with them, be and they are hereby restrained pending further order of this court from permitting to continue in effect the notice heretofore given by the defendant John L. Lewis to the sec'- retary of interior dated Nov. 15, 1946." This was Lewis' notice terminating the contract. The order restrains the UMW chief and the union from issuing or otherwise giving publicity to any notice that the present Krug- Lewis agreement has been, is, or will at some furture date be terminated, or become void al any time during government possession, of the mines. It further restrains them from "coercing, instigating, inducing or encouraging" the mine workers to interfere with operation of ..the mines by strike, slow-down, walkout, cessation wise. of work, or other- It also restrains them from interfering with or obstructing the exercise by Krug of his functions under the mine seizure order and Jrom taking any action which would interfere with the court's jurisdiction or would impair, obstruct, or render fruitless the determination of the case by the court. This court aclion, part of the government-Lewis showdown fight; came as more than 35,000 miners jumped the gun with premature walkouts. The government had appealed to the miners to stay on the job. The wave of wildcat walkouts hit at least cighl slates — Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Illinois, Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Virginia. Western Pennsylvania and Illinois were hardest hit. Virginia Gov. William H. Tuck promised full police protection .for all mines in thai slalc operating under government control. The government's latesl aclion came scarcely two days before the deadline sel by Lewis for termination of the present UMW contract with the government. The miners follow u "no contract, no work" rule. The government's action today paralleled legal moves laken in 1919 when the UMW had ordered more than 400,000 sofl coal miners on slrikc. .. how "The Squire" was squeezing Ihc interest rates. Everybody became a "Fascist trying to corrupt the common people" or a "Communist trying to enlist support among the frightened moneybags lo get the money to destroy them." A plain old-fashioned Republican or a diehard old Democrat was as behind the times as sulphur and molasses, as lonesome as the pioneer mother al birth control mcet- the big pot-bellied stove mg. And submission on', its merits today). 2. To dismiss the case as "moot," and being Washinglon, Nov. 18 The nation's basic — (UP) — industries lhat everybody gathered around? They turned it inlo a long mahogany bar with a foot rail that gave a man something to brace against but didn't keep him warm. Yep, the general store moved lo town. You may miss the crackers, fellows, but the cheese— its still llH'I'Ol 3. Requesting, by stipulation, additional time lo permit him to complete briefs. The suit, on which the motion was made, was dismissed in Garland Circuit Court on the grounds thai affidavils on which the contests were based were not properly notarized. It was broughl by I. G. Brown and olhers against nominees supported by Mayor Leo P. Me- Laughlin of Hoi Springs, alleging irregularilies in the primaries al which Ihe McLaughJin supported candidates were nominated. In the general election. Brown defeated Sheriff Marion Andcrsou, a regular party nominee, and Brown's fellow candidates, members of an ex-servicemen's frac- lion, likewise defeated olher regu lar nominees in all races when Ihr vHi'i-.'ius lirnl nj>|>ri.sitiuii. rushed emergency plans, Jpr:".;fuel conservation today as the-administration waded in for a slugging, showdown battle with Mine Chieftain John L. Lewis over the tjiroat- ened soft coal strike on Thursday. With the blessings of President Truman, Secretary of Ihc Interior J. A. Krug niade the -latest move in the government's fight. He called on Ihe miners to repudiate Lewis' leadership and remain at work under the contract with the government. One high official said Mr. Truman was not spoling tor a fight with Lewis but said Hie explanation for the government's attitude was as "simple as this. Somewhere, sometime, the administration musl find oul \vho is more powerful — Lewis or the government. This looks like the best lime."
