Nov. 20 — (#} — The veterans administration..announced today it has suspended subsistence allowances to approximatelyA.150,- 000 vetetans enrolled in -,'schools and on-the-job training programs uder the.,GI Bill of Right. * ou The action was taken.^A^caid. because o/ the failure ofethd ex- Ols.to report the rnoney. they4iave earned Jn addition to the ?,allowances. •": : •-.!"' > • At the- same time, an agency official estimated that allowances of 300,000 veterans will be redu'ced .because of a ceiling on subsistence payments , and earnings. -.Approximately. , 119,000 will receive no checks at all for that reason, he added. • • Since payments are made mopth- ly. the suspensions will n\jt actl^ally become evident until, the'next- p"Uy date, Nov. 30. ' VA officials said the failures to report income -were due principally to neglect. When the' data is furnished checks will-be sent to the veterans as quickly as possible. The pavments, made under the GI Bill of Rights, amount to, $65 monthly for unmarried veterans in school or on job training and to S^O' monthly for married men. More than 1.200,000 veterans draw the allotments. • • . . Tuition payments, made directly to schools, are'inot-a'ffected. Under legislation'.''.passed last summer, veterans' payments and earnings are limited to'a total of $175' monthly for--.those,without de- pe,ndents and to $200 monthly for those with, dependents, inithe event those figures are exceeded, the subsistence allowances must be re- Jruced accordingly. - .The Veterans -Administration warned on Nov- .1 that the subsistence^ allowances; Would be halted unless reports of earnings were received'Nov. 5. Suspensions are to remain in effect "until the information has been received. VA said payments have been discontinued to 149,046 recipents and that several branch offices have not yet reported the number of delinquents in their areas. The percentage affected in various districts ranged from four, to 16 percent of Ihe total enrolled in education and job'training programs.

In Galac, the government dded, the opposition national .'iber- 1 party attacked and occupied a refecture for a time. The capital itself gave the ap- earance of relative quiet during polling hours but there were eports that opposition newspaper endors had been beaten up and ospitalized in some localities. Op- osition parties said in their pro- est that voters and poll watchers ad been denied access to voting ooths. Long before the voting took plact le governments of ihe United tales and Great Britain criticized election as neither free nor nfettered so far as it concerned le opposition. The principal, and practically the nly, issue in the election was /hether the ovters desired to keep jrozas six-party government bloc n power—it has been in office ince March G, 1945—and thus turn le nation's face even more toward .ussia and communism or choose opposition, and adopt a middle- lass capitalistic type of society.

Dominate Continued from Page One Attlee Is Taking Realistic View of bisatisfaction Over British Policy By DeWITT MacKENZlE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst The campaign of left-wingers in the Brilish House of Commons lo force the Socialist government to dissociate its foreign policy from that of the United States so as to avoid what they describe as an "inevitable conflict" between Russia and America, gives interesting emphasis to the metamorphosis which John Bull's empire is undergoing. This rebellion apparently received a fillip from the announcement in the king's speech from the throne at the opening of Parliament last Tuesday that conscription for the armed forces would be continued — this being the first peacetime military conscription in Britain's history. Prime Minister Attlee gave point to this in his statement that developments o i' modern weapons made England especally vulnerable to attack. He said the country was now a part of the European continent and "we must have trained reserves who can take their part straight away without waiting six months for training." That's plain talk. It means that as things now stand there is danger Europe may be heading into another war. Further conflict isn't inevitable, but it's a possibility. Mr. Attlee is playing the part of a wise man in seeing that his country is prepared for contingencies. And the prime minister has given no indication that he thinks the dangers of another war rest in the relations -between Russia and America. Europe is as full of peace-traps as a hedgehog is of quills. Attlee is too well informed o agree with the amazing statement by one Socialist member of ""arliament that the United States vas the only nation in the world Smith'sWhite House Story Is Timely Stories behind The Story move n fast-reading continuity in Meriman Smith's "Thank You, Mr. ^resident", a While House corre- pondent's -account of world shak- ng events, togelher wilh a brilliant tory of the President's job, the fe of a reporter on a Presidential eat and many other facts which re not generally known. As the United Press White House orrespondent since before Pearl [arbor, Merriman has had an op- ortunity to observe daily events ji the presidential mansion. His mpressions of some of the most xciting evenls in the history of he nation together with a close- p view of two presidents are rammed in concise fashion in what Merriman calls -his White louse notebook. : "The most direct chanel of orhmunication, the most frequent- y used line belween the President f the TTnited States and the public s the White House correspondent," ne author explains before launch- ng into a sparkling account of ome of the things that were over- ooked in the big news of the day. Merriman was one of the "three houls," ,the late President Roose- elt's sometimes affectionate, ometimes quarrelous nickname or the representatives of the three ig news associations at the White iouse. As one of the "ghouls" he ravelled over 125,000 mile as the eporter-shadow of Roosevelt and "ruman, witnessed the tragedy, umor. suspense and excitement t the White House, suffered re- ortorial agony when other news- apermen sprang stories on he President's movements and cooped the "ghouls" who were jound by secrecy, saw Roosevelt ie over a period of about a year, iounded out reams of copy on his ealh at Warm Springs and watched a new President "break n." * The personalities of Roosevelt >nd Truman are depicted in great ontrast in "Thank You, Mr. Presi- lent." "There was nothing typical about Mr. Roosevelt", the author writes. "For twelve years, he fed he American people a straight liet of color and drama, of precedent and the unexpected." But Truman, said Merriman, is a typical American, whose color lies in his ack of color. Truman receives nore public criticism than Mr. Roosevelt because he is -more open about his social activities, says Merriman. Also, the former President was a more imposing, fearful igure than the present one, and t took more courage to bait him han it does to throw brickbats at he "incurable Missourian.' The reader can appreciate the news dashed off for them by the Vhite House correspondents When he reads that "being a White House correspondent is rather like being a doctor when it comes to telephone calls in the middle of the night or hurried trips to town, and that newspapermen actually nave been injured in the mad dash from a presidential press confer ence 19 a telephone. Merriman's chapter on his cov erage of Roosevelt's death, the return to Washington from the Warm tpnngs "White House" and the mneral is so vivid that the reader can almost feel the exhaustion the author fell as he balled out story after story aboard the funera" .rain. The UP correspondent gives the ,-eader short biographic sketches Jf Wendell Willkie, of Madame Chiang Kai-shek, whom he de scribed as a woman of contrast 'me who could be as soft and gen He as pe.ich fuzz one moment, and in arrogant, high-handed despo •he next; Spencer Tracy, who be oause he had seen only three movies in his lifetime, Ihe aulho .Tiistook for a polilician; and man- Jtner great and near-great wh' visited the White House Weic there any powder mark on the body of the deceased man? 1 asked the coroner. _'Certainly there were powde raarks pn him," replied the wife that s why I shot him."

[that this sounds very much like the language we have been hearing from another great European capital recently. Of course strange ideas about America still prevail in some quarters of the British Isles. I've even encountered people who believed that savage Indians still roam the plains close to Chicago. However, the average Briton is better informed about tho U.S.A., than that. And he knows that we don't want war with anybody, \hough we hope he will give us credit of being able to put up a fight if it is neces- ust in passing one might remark with Uncle Sam. So far as John Bull is concerned, his position is such thai it's good to have a friend — meaning America — but his policy of preparedness and his foreign relations aren't inspired by any "war fever" in the United States. His policies arise from two pressing personal situations: (1) The post-war realignment of the European spheres of influence has created a definite threat to peace :i2> The British Empire itself is undergoing a mignty change which involves an alteration in political relationships and an upheaval in its global defenses. There is Britain's recent mo- nieiitous recognition of the indefensibility of her Mediterranean life-line to the Far Easl in any further world war. This involves the shifting of the weight of her imperial defenses from the easl- ern Mediterranean to aline through British West and East Africa — a tremendous undertaking. There will be other defensive ad- juslmenls in the Orient. And there are political changes — for one, Ihe granting of independence lo Ihe vast, sub-conlinent of India. No, it isn't America's "war fever' 'lhat impels John Bull to keep his powder dry .He has troubles of his own and finds it very comforting to be on close terms Market Report iRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, Nov. 20 — (IP) — A new sensonal peak was scored by the Tanuary wheat future in grain pits oday, but other grain contracts vere not greatly changed from the preceding close. Some of the itrength in wheat was attributed 0 mill buying. Prices of wheat and rye flour in ^ew York were advanced, reflect- ng the current strength in cash rain quotations. Wheat flour was advanced to 20 cents a sack and rye flour 10 to 40 cents. A car of No. 1 mixed wheat sold n the spot cash market at $2.25 a jushel, the highest price reached sy the bread cereal here since the nflationary boom of 1D20. In that year wheat rose above $3.00. Corn and oats, weak during the early trading, advanced toward the close and moved ahead of yesterday's final quotations. Go«d demand forcash grain was a factor supporting futures. Wheat closed 1-2-1 1-4 higher, January $2.13 .During the session January wheat hit $2.13 1-2, best arice for any wheat delivery since October, 1920. Corn finished 1-4 lower to 1-4 higher, January $1.33 3-8-184, and oats were 1-8 lower to 1 1-4 higher, November 84 - 34 1-8.

CAB Plan to Stop at Spa Dismissed Washington, Nov. 10 — (/P) —The Civil Aeronautics Board today dismissed the application of the Chicago and Southern Airlines to serve Hot Springs, Ark , immediately as an intermediate point. The board said "impressive as the evidence may be" with re- sped to the public convenience mid necessity for air service to Hot Springs, it nevertheless had to be guided by the statutory directives contained in the Civil Aeronautics Act. The board's decision to dismiss the application was unanimous. The case resolved around a provision in (he act giving the board authority to grant a temporary exemption of section 401 u' it could be shown that without such exemption an undue burden would be placed on the carrier. "Witnesses for the city oi riot Springs pointed out," the board said, "that there arc certain interest charges which it must bear in connection with its participation in the construction of the Hot Springs airport, and contend that a delay in the inauguration of scheduled commercial air transportation service to the city will thus constitute a serious burden on it. "This fact, however, is not a ourden upon the carrier as contemplated by the statute." Viewing Chicago and Southern's contention it would gain considerable additional revenue by serving Hot Springs, the board said: "The fact that a carrier would obtain additional revenue from a proposed new service clearly cannot constitute n basis for granting af the relief sought here." A board spokesman said the decision does not affect the Mississippi Valley case which has nol yet been submitted to the boarc Soldier Lived Two Years in Jungles By HUGH DOAK Editor and Publisher Manchester Times Hillsboro, Tenn., Nov. 19 —(UP) — I broke the news ahead of the War Department before dawn today to Farmer J.

Officials said the American could remember only that he enteted the jungles in 1944. They said he was dressed in jungle greens and Australian Airforce boots .
