The big nine and Pacific Coast conferences wiU crown their champions before Saturday's sim goes down and by that time the of-, ficials of the -two* leagues probably will have decided whether- to match the winners in the Rose Bowl or clear a -path to Pasadena for Army's unbeaten team. Title races in various other conferences also are likely to'be cleared up and performances this week will go a long .way,,toward determining which teams .will appear ,in the remaining bowl- games on New Years' day. , Army, which followed its scoreless tie with Notre Dame by clipping Pennsylvania, 34-7, rests this week for its Nov. 30 finale with Navy. The host team for the Rose Bowl will emerge from Saturday's important struggle between Southern California and UCLA. All-victorious UCLA, which swamped Montana, 61-7, for its eight straight win, can Wife of Hospital Commander Dies at Hot Springs Hot Sorings, Nov. 18 — (#)— Mrs. Jessie E. Lehman, 62, wife of Col. Asa M. Lehman, commanding officer of the Army and Navy General -hospital here, died today as the result of a cerebral hemorrhage suffered last week. Funeral services will be held here tomorrow and the body will be taken to her home at Ardmore, Pa., for burial. Mrs. Lehman came to Hot Springs with her husband last September. Survivors include her mother, Mrs. Lillie McClintock, who lived with her here, and a son, Capt. Lehman, Columbus, O. grab both the Pacific coast title and the Pasadena plum by beating the Trojans. v A, victory for Southern Cal in this last conference outing for both clubs would give each a share of the title, however, and hand the conference the added headache of selecting one of them for the Rose Bowl. Illinois, which blasted Ohio State's title hopes Saturday, 16-7, can wrap up the big nine flag this week at Northwestern, whose 27-0 licking by Notre Dame kept the Irish abreast of Army in the race Cor the mythical national championship . Michigan stayed in the running by knocking off Wisconsin, 28-6, and if Illinois should falter the Wolverines could take the title by winning this week at Ohio State. The remainder of the Big Nine vvindup will find Minnesota, 16-6 conqueror of Iowa, at Wisconsin and Indiana at Purdue. Big six teams have come down to the wire with four of them tied for the lead . Oklahoma, which turned back Missouri, 27-6, entertains Nebraska, 33-0 winner over Iowa State, this week with the winner clinching a tie for the crown. Kansas, which crushed Kansas State, 3-0, plays Missouri for the other half of the title on Thanksgiving day. Harvard, which blanked Brown, 28-0, and Yale, 30-2 victor' over Princeton, will try to settle the Ivy League race Saturday at Cambridge. With three league wins and no defeats against Yale's record of three victories, one loss and a tie, Harvard would win the till by taking the Bulldogs. Cornell remained in the running by beating Dartmouth ,21-7, for its third league triumph against one tie, however, and a Yale victory over Harvard would leave the issue in doubt until Cornell's May Aged Woman Dies of Burns Sustained Early Yesterday Hot Springs, Nov. 18 — (ft*) — Mrs. Tenna C. Johnson, 30, died last night of burns suffered yesterday morning when her clothing caught fire as she stood before a stove at her home in Buckville, near Hot Springs. A lifelong resident of Garland and Montgomery counties, she is survived by three sons and three daughters. Funeral services will be held Tuesday at Crystal Springs. Bobcats Be Surprised by Fordyce The Bobcats journey to Fordyco Friday night for a conference game wilh the highly - regarded Redbugs before winding up the season here Turkey Day with Pine Bluff's Zebras. Winning the last two conference games would just about clinch fourth place in the loop for the "Cats and if Benlon knocks off Texarkana the Bobcats would be Ihe third team in the state. But the biggest obstacle in the way is Fordyce. The Redbugs have had a fair season and held the Little Rock Tigers to one of their lowest scores of the year. They seem to run hot and cold, playing fair one week and burning up the gridiron the next. If the Hope boys catch them on one of their "hot" nights it probably will be just too bad.

Fresh from a 41-0 triumph over Bornhill Gives Credit to His Staff By CARL. BELL Fayettcvillc, Nov. 18 — (/?) — Drawling John Bnrnhtll, who has | coached the Arkansas Razomacks to at least a tie for the Southwest Conference football championship, never saw a team from that dog- oat-clog circuit play until this season. Barnhill is the serious gnu tactician Arkansas lured away from Tennessee and the Southeastern Conference last winter for $10,000 a year. Cries of "Barnhill for governor" went up after the Rnzorbucks clinched at least half of the crown by eating Southern Methodist Saturday for their fifth win in six conference games and their fourth loop shutout. But the soft-spoken "Barnic" — too happy to point out he'd lose money by giving up coachiiiE! to be governor — wouldn't accept the credit. "This has not been n one-man show by .any means," he quipped. "It takes a team to piny football, and the assistant coaches and scouts deserve a lot of praise. They did an excellent job. But mainly it was the spirit of the boys." When the Arkansas trustees handed Barnhill a five-year contract last January, they told him he could take that much time if necessary to improve the fortunes of the Porkers, who had spent most of the time in tho Southwest cellar since winning the 1930 crown. But construction went well ahead of schedule. Rice still has a chance to share the title, but Arkansas holds a victory over Rice and probably a preference for the Cotton Bowl, to which the Southwest kingpin is pledged. .There are those who think Barnhill knew all along he had a good shot at top money. But not to hear "Barnie" tell it. "I was sincere in my pessimism and uncertainty in September, I knew we would have a pretty good team, but I knew the opposition would be good, too — too good from all we heard. And, you know, I didnt' know what we were up against. I had never before seen a Southwest Conference team play. "I figured we might win some games if we hud the proper fight We've Got It Phone 62 "The Leading Druggist" Auburn, Georgia will invade Chat- anooga and Georgia Tech will en- :ertain Furman. Tennessee, tied vith Georgia for the Southeastern Conference lead, will be invaded by Kentucky, which stopped West Virginia, 13-0, and Mississippi State will be at Mississippi for loop con- .ests while Tulane has the dubious honor of entertaining Notre Dame. North Carolina took over the top spot in the Southern Conference by whipping Wake Forest, 26-14, and can sew up the championship this week by turning back Duke, 39-0 winner over South Carolina. Arkansas assured itself of at least a tie for the Southwest Conference crown by stopping Southern Methodist, 13-0, and probably will be the host team in the Cotton Bowl since it has defeated Rice, the only team with a chance to share the title ; Texas Christian knocked Texas out of a possible title tie, 14-0, and could do the same to Rice by winning Saturday at Houston. Southern Methodist will be at Baylor for another conference game. action was instituted to restrain five bishops from taking action to prevent the conference. Involved were federal court injunctions said to have been issued in New York and Ohio preventing church officials from taking action against Bishops Sims and William A. Fountain. Fred Isgrig, an attorney for the plaintiff bishops, alleged in an argument today that the defendants were responsible for "embezzlements which may have totaled $600,000." The plaintiffs also allege the defendant bishops were responsible for the loss by AMK of one New York church of 1,000 members. Announcing the opening of the office of A.

Euroka Springs Ozark Resort Stages Comeback A generation ago, "back when horse carriages swept dapper dandies and their glitlcringly bedecked women over the beautiful hills oC northwest Arkansas on vacation,'-' Eureka Springs was one of mid-America's most famous watering places, says Ihc current news letter of Arkansas Resources & Development Commission. Then evil days fell on Eureka Springs. It barely survived World War I, and "by Ihc DO's Eureka was looking pale indeed. By 1940 only the ghost of the gay old days remained— fnded, ugly, vacant buildings standing like scarecrows."

PRICE 5c COPY And here the state commission's story tells how a Chicago hotel caterer came to Eureka Springs inn 1942, took over the old Basin Park hotel — first of the great Ozark establishments — and in 30 days •made it a booming place. Thc man was Joe Parkhill. . This past summer one of Parkhill's former associates, Dwight Nichols, secured the former Norman Baker hospital plant at Eureka (originally the Crescent hotel) and did for it what Parkhill had done for the Basin Park house. Bolh men proposing to make their homes in Eureka it was natural that they should set up the hotels on a 'year-round basis — proof that Eureka Springs' newfound boom was permanent indeed. Incidentally, the two hotels arc opening a joint bureau in Chicago to tell the story of Eureka Springs to a vacation-minded world. •This is an amazing and heartening story — of how a couple of Chicago men rediscovered the potential worth of an Arkansas resort that had lain forgotten by its own people for a generation. And every Arkansan who has thrust his car's nose down one of Eurcka's circular staircase streets carries in his heart forever the memory of that fascinating moment — and knows that the Chicagoans' discovery was genuine. Council Passes Ordinance for Garbage System The city's proposed garbage disposal system became a reality last night with the passage of an ordinance by the local council in its regular meeting. Operation of the plan only awaits delivery of a truck suitable to collect garbage. Under the setup the garbage will be collected twice each week. A charge of fifty cents a month for each family head will be made regardless of whether a family disposes of its own garbage. The ordinance, which was made third and a law last night following a reading, sets up strict rules regulations which must be followed and violators are subject to court action. Housewives must put garbage in closed containers in n place where it is easily accessible to collectors. Council action followed a "mild" campaign from local citizens. The group, over a period of several months has received many requests asking that a garbage system be set up. At last night's meeting several citizens objected to a collection fee, stating they disposed of their own garbage. There were told the plan is a citywide project and would include everyone. ijcc Wl lielher BY JAMES THRASHER A' Needed Warning • In the light of another threatened and particularly daniaging coal strike, it was interesting to sec that an editorial in the Incrnaional Teamster, publication of the AFL Teamsters Union, had staled that 'strikes have become a national menace." I •They must be curtailed," the editorial continued, 'or the nation will sink inlo chaos and organized labor will perish." In addition to this solemn warning, the editorial affirmed the union's determination to stamp out Wildcat strikes, and recalled that the international union could revoke local charters, and fine, suspend or expel individual participants in such strikes. All that is wise and commendable, but there seem to bo some differences within the AFL's great family of unions between precept and practice. New York City was tied up for two months by a general trucking strike, plus a parcel delivery strike which lasted nearly as long. Thc Teamsters international-sanctioned neither of them. Yet there are no indications to date of any punitive action against the wildcat strikers. ' Elsewhere in the AFL, carpenters 'and' slageliands have thrown the motion picture into confusion by a jurisdiclional strike which the lead- iCrs of the warring unions have seemed unable or unwilling to settle. And now the miners stand ready to walk off the job again if the gov- 'ornmenl fails to meet John L. Lew "js's demands. Thc International Teamster editorial apparently was written before election day, but its author was speaking prophetically when he called strikes "a national menace". For the vote of Nov. 5 gave miatakable notice that the majority of voters agree with that estimate Tho vote showed clearly that the country is fed up with jurisdiction al> wrangles, unauthorized walkouts. •and actual or threatened strikes o political origcn. It showed that the country is fed up with strikes tha punish the public rather than man agement, and wilh union leaders who try to make a monkey out o" the government. Oddly enough, it is the relative!) conservative AFL, unencumbered with Communists and hence more popular with a great many non -un ion citizens, which is largely res ponsiblo for stirring up the publi wrath. And if Mr. Lewis sue ceeds in bringing most of our national machinery to a halt wilh another "no contract, no work" strike, that wrath may turn into something really formidable. The new Republican Congress will undoubtedly try to be sensible and reasonable in enacting new labor legislation, if only for political reasons. But if another coal strike is pulled off, there might be a concerted public demand for Congress garbage is actually collected from a home, occupants of the residence will benefit because the project is designed to help make the city a cleaner place to live. The council voted to purchase a new turbin for the Water and Light plant which would maintain plenty of current for a growing city and give protection for emergencies. The machine will cost over a hundred thousand dollars but delivery of one cannot be made before 18 or 20 months. Thc group agreed also to keep the emergency landing lights on all night at the city airport for a trial period of 30 days. Dr. P. B. Carrigan, city physician, notified the council that this board planned to make an inspection of all city schools. No immediate action was taken on a request by Floyd McDowell to close an alley in block 23 of Democratic Party Chairman on 2-Month Vacation By LYLE C. WILSON Washington, Nov. 20 — (UP) — The Democratic National Committee was operating today without a chairman for all practical purposes and the question befoic President Truman was who should succeed 43-ycar-Old Robert E. Hannegan in that job. Mr. Truman may have to look for a new postmaster general, also. Announcement that Hannegan had been ordered to take a complete rest was accompanied by word from his associates that he was expected to resign the committee chairmanship shortly. His cabinet tenure will depend, the United Press was informed, on how much his vacation improves his health. Hannegan suffers from nigh blood pressure, an affliction not uncommon in politics, and will be away from Washington until Jan. Okla- expiring, is most prominently mentioned as Hannegan's successor as committee chairman. Hannegan's own choice probably would be second Assistant Postmaster General Gael Sullivan. Others whose names have figured in speculation arc Price Administrator Paul Porter and Undersecretary of Interior Oscar Chapman. Thc Democratic National Committee is tentatively scheduled to meet here in January at which lime Hannegan's resignation would be accepted and a successor sought. 15. Gov. Robert S.

MANNING Lake Success, N .Y., Nov. 20 — (/P)—Thc United Slates called on all members of the United Nations today to lay "all cards" on the table and make complete reports on the numbers of their troops both at ho'me and abroad. Without formally accepting a double-barrelled proposal of Soviet F'oreign Minister V. M. Molotov :on the troop reports question Sen. Tom Connelly (D-Tcx) declared the United States agreed that complete information on troop dispositions should be made public. Connally and Molotov spoke be^ fore the 54-member political committee of the United Nations Assembly, which was called into, session to debate a Soviet proposal asking information on Allied troops and bases in non-enemy territory. "If it is the view of the committee that these reports have value, furnish the information," Conhally the United Stales is prepared to said. "We think all cards should oe laid on the table.

New Formula for Control of Rent Seen Washington, Nov. 20 — (/P)— A prediction thai Congress will write > new formula for controlling •cuts, with provision for increases 'where incquilies exist," came to lay from Rep. Wolcotl (R-Mich) Ho also forecast that the new OOP-dominated Congress will con ,inue government rent controls — at leasl unlil next July 1. Wolcott is to become chairmai of the House Banking Commilte which handles price and rent con Irol legislation. His statement to reporters shortly after OPA was represent ed by a high official as "strong! opposed" of a general increase i rent ceilings but favoring decon trol of transient hotel rents. Thi official said any flal percenlag rise in rents will have to com from Congress, if at all. Wolcott is whipping into shape plans for a quick investigation of the housing program for veterans, which he has described as "outrageously bad." Whether rent conlrols are ex- Icndccl beyond next June 30, he said, depends largely on whether the housing shortage is relieved by new construction. "We must be realisitic about rent controls," he said. 'There is an awful housing shortage. If we lifted rent controls completely a small minority of unscrupulous land lords no doubt would fiouge their tenants and there would be happen last summer when there was no rent control for a while." A group of Detroit, Mich., land- lalies pickcled Ihc While House and OPA headquarters, carrying banners calling for an end to rent control and saying "America wants freedom, not commoism.' In Texas, there were reports of a landlords' strike. to throw the strikers. book at strikes and 'It is no idle warning that the International Teamster has sounded. We hope that Mr. Lewis and other old - line union leaders, who have done so much for labor in the past, will read it and Bonder it well. It •would be tragic if these men, in their better days, should sabotage the structure of organized labor by their arrogant, pompous, public-be damned policies.

LeMAY Washington, Nov.- 20 — (/I 5 )—In- rcasing opposition indicated today hat Republican leaders may run nto a major fight against their Man for a quick 20 per cent reduc- ion in individual income taxes once Congress meets. , In talks with reporters, two more G.O.P. House members — Reps. Ci^ris and Miller of Nebras- ca — adoiheir voices to those of scattering party members already questioning its wisdom. On the Democratic side, veteran Rep. Doughton of North Carolina too|t a firm stand against any tax reduction until th'e... federal budget is balanced dnd a'''start made on reducing tho federal debt. Doughlon guided the writing of Democratic tax legislation for 12 years and his views usually command a large following in his party. Miller disputed the right of the House Republican Steering Committee to speak for all parly members on tax matters. "They are taking in a lot of territory when they try to say now exactly what the rest of the members intend to do," he commented. Miller and-Curtis both said they considered reducing expenditures and the debt more .'moorlant than immediate cuts in taxes. , Rep. Cox , ot vicorgiu, one of those mentioned for the Democratic House leadership, expressed a view apparently held by many of his party. He said in an interview that he' believes the Republicans have promised "more than they will be able to deliver" in their tax cutting and economy programs. But Rep. Knulson, Minnesota Republican who succeeds Doughton as chairman of the tax-drafting Ways and Means Committee, insisted it can be done. He told newsmen; "Upon the assurances given by Mr. Taber (R-NY), who becomes chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, that th'e 1948 federal budget will be held at or below $32,000,000,000 — $10,000,000,below this year's budget — I can assure the country without reservation we will be able to reduce personal income laxos by 2 per cent, balance the budget and make a substantial payment on the national debt. "If we can stabilize the labor ituation, we may look forward to greater era of prosperity and a ilgher national income than any inc. has dreamed of." o Soldier Can't Remember All ThatHappened Lake Success ,Nov. 20 —(UP) — Soviet Foreign Minister Viacheslav M. Molotov charged in the United Nations today that Allied troops stationed in non-enemy territories were exerting pressure on "friend-, ly" governments. Mololov opened debate in the U N general assembly political and security committee with a blistering restatement of Soviet charges lhat American and British troops were being kept abroad for political reasons. Molotov announced that Russia would agree to furnish the United Nations complete details of 'her troop dispositions in both non- enemy and.- former enemy territories. • .'-'•' Molotov said that "the war -is over; the tasks of Allied troops are done." ; .

He's got the Board of Transportation so worried it is considering pulling a "for women only" car on each express train during rush hours. And what do the girls think of the idea?

It expanded the "ability to pay" theme of Murray's keynote address opening the CIO's eighth convention last Monday, The 1946 profits of all manufacturing corporations after taxes were estimated at $7,000,000,000 or $2,000,000,000 higher than the all-time peak average from 1942 to 1945. "These record profits clearly vindicate the position taken by the CIO on the wage increases in early 1946," the economic outlook said. "Industries could have paid the 1946 wage increases without increasing prices of their products, and still have been left wilh profits at least equal to those made during the war years 1942-45." The publication said it assumed that a reasonable profil after taxes is $1,000,000,000 which it said equals the wartime figure and is twice the average profits for 193639. "Industry's insatiable appetite for profits has brought about a redistribution in our national income which, if permitted to continue, will -' '—-'-- and . . . the outlook said. It said that workers lad received 37.7 per cent of the lationul income during the war but .his has dropped during the first eight momenths of 1946 to 62.6 per cent, or nine-tenths of one per cent below the 1936-39 average. It claimed that this is a repetition of the trend in 1924-29 which ed to the last depression. "The highest profits in history must not be allowed to result jn the worst economic collapse in history," it said. "Substanlial wage increases must now be made if we are to atlain and maintain sufficient purchasing power to keep our economy moving full speed ahead.' ' "The oullook" said that in terms, of purchasing power, the workers had $8 a week less in September than the 1945 peak. If workers were to have a weekly income regarded as necessary for the minimum health and decency budget, it said the average weekly wage should be $6S.19 or $23.09 a week more than $4.10 average prevailing in September.'
