One of the Times' compclitors, Ihc New York Daily News, sought lo obtain a federal permit for a radio station in the metropolis— l.:it in the public hearings required for all such permits Ihe News found ilself heckled by an organization which declared that the News was anti-Jewish in its news policy and therefore should be i*v disqualified as a radio applicant. '-' New York is the'largest Jewish cily in Ihc world. The News, owned by Episcopalians, has Ihe largest newspaper circulation in America. Coming to the rescue of its competitor, the New .York Times through its Washinglon corrcs pondcnt Arthur Krock, said 01 November 15: "The Daily News denies that its policies are as charged by thi American Jewish Congress. Tha rests between the newspaper anc *i} its accusers. The proper judgci '"' are its readers, not any part o the government. The importan point is lhal a be obliged by any part of the government lo answer Ihc charge by way of maintaining ils ordi Bobcats Invited to Play Post Season Game Lewis Remains Silent The Hope Bobcats nave been in Red to play a postseason game igainst one of Louisiana's strongest cams at Hammond, Louisiana, DC jcmbcr 0, in a contest dubbed the 'Strawberry Bowl" championship, ^onch Joe Dildy announced today, •lammond is approximately 45 nilcs east of Baton Rouge.

Whether the Bobcats can play a- wails a decision from the Arkansas Athletic Association which is expect ed to make a decision sometime today. Coach Dildy's boys arc ready and raring and would like nothing better than a chance to uphold Arkansas' football prestige. Actually the game would not be postseason because the 1 Arkansas playoff system extends through December 6. Although the Bobcats will not participate in the title playoffs they are considered one of the state's strongest teams and hold fourth place in District One Conference. The Hope team is scheduled to close the season here Turkey Day against Pine Bluff but if the AAA decision is favorable, will lake on the Louisiana team a week later. The Strawberry Bowl winner will receive gold footballs and the losing team will get silver footballs. From all reports a gala time is newspaper should planned before and after the con" " test.

New York's great Jewish population has helped make the accused Ncsv York News No. 1 in American circulation.

Why, none other than the Jewish-owned New York Times. * * * BY JAMES THRASHER A courageous Rebuke Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Mr. Vishinsky, heard some plain words spoken about his country's policies by an old and patienl friend <»•• of the Soviet Union last week. The \.f- speaker was Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, and the occasion was a mcel- ing of Ihc UN Inlernalional Rcfu gee Organization. Mrs. Roosevelt's words were in. reply to Mr. Vishinsky's latesl in- sislance on the Russian demand that all displaced persons be _ returned to Ihe place of their birth. She defended the proposed IRO constitution, which would not force a refugee to go home Unchanged polilical conditions which might threaten his safety or his freedom „ Mr. Vishinsky had spoken again '-•'• of Russian "democracy." He had repeated the familiar accusations of "facism," and had attacked the freedom of speech and press per- inilled in refugee camps as "hoslile • propaganda." To this Mrs.* Rooscvcll made some poinnlod answers. "As Mr. Vishinsky uses il," she said, "il would seem that democracy is synonymous with Soviet....Under that formula 1 am very sure he would nol accepl some of Ihe other nations of the world who consider •>">• themselves democracies and who '" arc as willing lo die for Iheir beliefs as are Ihe people of Ihc Soviet Union." Elsewhere in her speech Mrs. Roosevelt gave aboul as concise a statement of the cause and remedy of Sovicl - American differences as has been offered in the whole period of those unfortunate misunderstandings. "We in tire United Stales tolerate opposition," she said, "provided if docs not extend lo Ihc point of ad vocacy of overthrow of the govern '* nicnt by force. Unless the right o opposition is conceded, il seems lo . me lhal there is very little possi ' bility thai countries with differing conceptions of democracy can liv~ together without friction in th same world." If we could believe that Russit would lake advice from an olc i friend with better grace than from i a casual or suspicious acquainlanc then we might dare to hope thai Mrs. Roosevcll's counsel would be heeded. Bul Russia's reaction to ' $ advice in Ihe past makes such a ••/ hope a very faint one. Nevciihclcss, Mrs. Roosevell accomplished Iwo Ihings. She gave Mr. Vishinsky a courleous bul pointed reminder lhal Russia's sweeping generalities and illogical assumptions of a monopoly of polilical and social virtues are decidedly unpalatable to most of the other countries which are trying to work and live with the Soviet Union. And, although she may not have intended it, she also gave an answer to those of her countrymen '\ who have repeatedly charged her, unkindly and untruly, with Conv munisl sympathies. Mrs. Roosevelt's speech before the IRO should silence those accusa tions definitely and finally. She proclaimed a philosophy of free gov- crnmcnl which is the antithesis ol Russian Communism, a philosophy follow the game. Meanwhile the Hope team has two tough tills lefl on ils regular schedule. They journey to Forclycc onight for a game which is cx- jcclcd lo be one of the season's oughcsl.

Military Academy, said today that the Army football season would end rind the loam disband afler the Navy name in Philadelphia on Nov. 30. The statement dclinilely ends Ihe possibility ihat Army will play any post season game, anywhere, either in the Sugar Bo'wl, to which it was invilfd, or in Los Angeles, where the cily council wanted ihe Cadets and Noire Dame to play off their scoreless lie of two weeks ago, in a charily game. Thus, the mighly Cadet squad which has gone through three seasons undefeated — pending the outcome of the Navy game a week from tomorrow — will wind up ils col- legiale career without a postseason struggle. It is known Army authorities were willing to have Coach Earl Blaik's Black Knights of the Hudson meet \he Pacific Coast Conference champion in the Rose Bowl at Pasadena next January 1. However, when that possibility was wiped out by the recent agreement between the coasl eom^rcncc and Ihe midwest's Big Nine to li.-ive their standard hearers collide in the Rose Bowl each January 1 for the next five years, beginning with 1947 •— and the resultanl wave of comment lhal agreement caused— Army decided lo buw out of any post-season play.

He hid out during the war after a group of pub- room admiral proposed thai Ihc British Navy capture him and train him to hunt down German submarines. Considering this draft-dodging record, therefore, it must be assumed that Ihe Lake Como giant is a newcomer, for the "swecl- hcarl of Loch Ness" was a shy sea serpent who never raised his tail in anger. Certainly the big sissy wouldn't charge full tilt into several boats full of brawny fisher-folk. Many cynics believe the "great sea serpent" is as mythical as ogres, rocs, unicorns, the Flying Dutchman, the Phoenix, or the well- known bald-headed man with dandruff. The scientists aren't so cocksure. Some say there still may exist in the ocean's watery wales a few of the great pe-rhitorie reptiles, or, more plausibly, a scarce modern kind of gigantic sea snake slill unclassified. "Remote though it may be in the background," cautions the conservative Encyclopaedia Britannica, "it is still unwise to deny the existence of the sea-serpent." Which may be some consolation lo Lake Como's intrepid fishermen — if they can read English as well as they can see sea serpents. Nobody ever threw a hallar around one of these reluctant water dragons, but since the 16lh cen- lury some 200 cases of their appearance have been reported, some obviously hoaxes, some obviously instances where they were confused with whales, giant quids Or schools or poruoise. But olhei slill arc studied by serious cicn- tists. Wher have they been seen? Within the last hundred and fifty years reports of sea serpents have come from Indo-China, Loch Ness the Gulf of California. Gloucester New Zealand, the isle of Skye Brazil, Ihe west coasl of Africa Vancouver, and the Thasmeseslu C*» .T i I Who saw them? Or thought they did? Experienced marines, screwballs, businessmen, doctors, clergymen and so distinguished a .sailor a Commander H. L. Pearson, skipper of Queen Victoria' yacht, who reported in 1877 to the British admiralty he had sighted a 150-foot unknown sea monster off north Sicily. So don't just sit there in your chair and say "There ain'l no such animal." All the people who say they saw one weren't nibbling on high-voltage soda pop. The Lake Como serpent —if any —differs from other members of the breed — if any — by having great horns and huge scales. If this isn't lusl Ihc biggesl fish story ever to come out of the Mediterranean area, the new montei can expect an offer from Billy Rose guaranteeing him thirteen weeks in Rockefeller center at his own figure.

Two men were shot fatally in Wcsl Virginia in the first major flare-up of violence. Railroads, steel mills and their customers, public utilities and other big users of soft coal began tatten- ing down for the worst — a protracted work stoppage in the 3,300 jovernmenl-held mines.

Neither Lewis nor his lieutenants D ave any inkling what he intends .o do when he goes before Judge Goldsborough. One person in close touch with the behind-the-scenes activity suggested the week-end interlude before the court appearance might have been strategic. He pointed oul it would give Lewis an opportunity, at least, to try for an out- of-court settlement with the gov-1 eminent. President Truman, still on vacation at Key West, Fla., likewise had nothing lo dilvulge on the administration's plans for getting the mines back into production. Bul his press secrelary, Charles G. Ross, commented that developments in the capital arc following a logical pattern.
