Eight ships were scheduled to ,-ave Norfolk. San Diego. San Pedro and Port Hueneme Calif, today. Two already have left and three are'leaving at later dates. Four ships leaving Norfolk will pass through the Panama Canal about Dec. 7 and will be joined here by a submarine and an oiler. They will rendezvous witn the ships roni 'the Pacific Coast in the vicinity of Scott Island, about at the ntersection of the Antartic Circle and the 180th .Meridian. The task force will proceed to the Little America base—2,300 miles "down under" from New Zealand — when jie ice passages begin to open up between Jan. 1 and 15. They will -.tay until March, when the ice begins to close in, and are scheduled o return to bases in April. The main base will be at Litle America, on the Ross ice shelf vith other groups operating to the 3ast and west. Officers and men vill dress in martian-appearing, masked and goggled outfits com- xised of many layers of cold-resisting material. Their equipment, being tested for the first time under .climatic conditions which are the world's coldest, will be the atest mechanical military ma- "hines. . . However, husky dogs, the trust-! jd and tried work animals of rozen climes, will pull the equipment sleds in places where machines will not travel. Rear Admiral Cruzen of Galla- in. Mo., has as his flagship the Mount Olympus, a naval command imp; which is a veterri of western pacific 'wartime amphibious oper- ifions. The Olympus heads a central ask group composed of the coastguard ice-breaker Northwind, the argo ships Yancey and Merrick, •ind the submarine Sennet. The east task group, commanded by Capt. George J. Dufek of tockford. 111.,will be composed of :he seaplane tender Pine Island, he oiler Canisteo, and the destroyer 'Bro'wnson. ;The west task group is commanded by Capt. Charles'-A. Bond of Arlington, Va., and -Philadelphia. Its components are the sea- slane tender Currituck, the oiler Cacapon, and the destroyer Henderson. . . An additional ice-breaker the Burton Island,- is scheduled xo eave about Feb. 2. The cargo ship Merrick leaves Port Hueneme about Dec. 5. The oiler Canisteo las-left for Panama and the submarine Sennett already is there. The four ships leaving Norfolk :oday were the Mt. .Olympus Vorthwind, - Pine Island, and Brownson.- The Currituck and Henderson were leaving from San Diego, the .Cacapon from San Diego and the Yancey from Port Heu- neme. Each of the large seaplane tenders .carries three camera-equipped Martin Mariner patrol seaplanes a small scout plane ,and two helicopters. Each of the two icebreakers carries a scout seaplane and a helicopter. The submarine .equipped with tathometers and bathythermo- graphs,_ will help in qceanographic research. The major ships will be equipped for collecting ocean floor samples of moraines — which are the earth and rook deposits of glaciers and which should furnish an index to the -continent's geologic make-up. The weather men will attempt a complete study of the place where much of the southern hemi- spnere's weather is born. They will try to learn how to forecast the tropical hurricanes which hit regions thousands of miles from the polar area. Radar will be used to detect snow and ice storms and measure the vagaries of observation balloons. Newspaper and radio men will Keep contact with America through the wireless facilities of the flagship, 'which has the same equipment as . the general communications ships used in the Bikfni atomic bomb experiments. A representative of the Fish and Wildlife Service will study the whales at the sanctuary near Marie Byrd land, and another will collect samples of marine life — but no penguins. "The Smithsonian Institution says we've got too many penguins already," he said. Industrial Firms Trying to Sewe War Plant Site Little Rock, Dec. 2 —f/P)— industrial concerns still are clamoring to buy .or rent portions of the Arkansas ordnance plant at Jacksbn- viiie but have been blocked by failure of the" War Assets Administration at Washington to approve an occupancy plan, Floyd Sharp, of tne WAA i>eal property division nere, said today. Sharp reported that a canning plant and a chemical manufacturing concern which would make insecticides want to take over the bomb component and artillery booster sections of factory sites He said other industries, including farm machinery and garment manufacturers, furniture and woodworking planls and a company proposing to manufacture aluminum doors were being '"•stalled off" because of delay at •Washington. u "W6 canjt tell them how much the rent will be, what the sale price is, or when they can move in " Snakes Alive!

Police Restore in oi By WALTER RUNDUE Shanghai.

The controversy was precipitated ay -Senator Ernest Maner, Hot Springs, who proposed that the school s cash fund be placed in the treasury with only §5,000 of it being earmarked as a revolving emergency fund. -Offered after the committee had approved a : $48,220 budget for the school Maner's motion carried 7 to 6 Reps. Rick Wr.ight, .Clark county and L. H. Aulry, Mississippi county, charged that the committee had put the management of the school "in a straight jacket" and had broken faith by limiting use of the cash fund. Senator Byron Goodson, De- Queen, moved that the entire budget be reconsidered tomorrow and his motion prevailed 7 to 5. Maner was successful last week in prohibiting an yuse by the division director of the boiler inspection division's cash fund and said today he intended to attempt to bring every other un-appropriated cash fund under legislative control. Comptroller John J. Truemper reported to the committee today iflu 34 st ? te a 2 enci es, including all the colleges, maintained cash tunds not under legislative control The comittee approved annual budgets of: -j57,900 for the banking department, compared to $50,320 it now receives. $112,700 for th eWorkmen's Compensation Commission, which now receives 5103,100 $106,900 for the White Boys 'Industrial School, which now receives $88,460. $200 -for the Civil War capitol at Washington, Ark., the same as now.' $177,974 as the stale's share of salaries for county assessors and clerks who had $.173,844 the past year. McClellan Favors Legislation to Al! Strikes Fort Smith, Nov. 30 —(/P)— Legislation which would prevent prolonged nation-wide strikes by forcing arbitration of disputes in basic industries was urged by U. 3. Sen- alor John L. McClellan (D-Ark) in an address before two civic clubs here yesterday. "I supoort collective bargaining, tul when Ihe agencies of Ihe government fail lo settle labor disputes in the same manner we settle other disagreements, then new law must be passed if this nation is to survive." he declared.

Eastern commission houses sold corn, but offerings were readily absorbed by local traders associated with processing interests.

The 12 months total for 1943 was 2,934,860. Statistics for cities with populations of 10,000 or more the more complete figures available, show that 595,289 marriage licenses were issued during the first nine months of 1946. -That is more than the 594,908 licenses issued during all of 1942, the record year before 1946 came along. , -^ Greek Situation Getting to Point That All iBal^ai) Countries May Be Affected By PeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst That Greek situation - to which this column called atlention a week ago — is getting so hot there's danger of spontaneous combustion which will set the whole Balkans aflame — and then wha.t? Energetic Premier Tsaldaris has served notice on Russia that his country is going to lodge complaint with the United .Nations, accusing "foreign sources" of inspiring disorders in northern Greece. And the key to this whole Balkan mess lies in ihe answer as to why he notified Russia rather than his northern neighbors direct. The premier of course was employing the old school diplomatic language, which generally expresses itself by indirection —what we call double talk. That's not to say he is afraid to speak up .—for he doesn't .lack courage ^— but he has had wide experience in diplomacy during his sixty odd years and is discreet. However, there is no misunderstanding what he has in mind, especially since other Athens authorities have pinned the thing in general terms to Albania, Yugoslavia and Bulgaria. This then is the situation.: In the first place there is civil conflict in many parts of Greece between leftists and the monarchist government. Fighting was reported in several a.rqas yesterday. But the greatest .trouble is being experienced in fiery Macedonia in northern Greece along the Albanian-Yugoslav-Bulgarian frontiers. Disorders aren't anything new to Macedonia which has been a center of turmoil through the centuries. Now, however authoritalive quarters in Athens say the trouble is being fomented by Albania, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia, and that these countries are giving support to the upheaval. The point of this alleged interference by Greece's northern neighbors is that they are communistic states which are trying to secure the overthrow of the Greek monarchy and the establishment -qf aSoviet goverment. But the thing culs a iul deeper than that. These three Red States are satellites of Moscow, and are very much under Russian control. And Greeqe is England's litlle brolher and looks to London for protection and guidance. There we have a situation which unhappily brings Britain and the Soviel Union face-to-face in one of. the hottest of Europe's hot spots That, I judge, is why. Tsaldaris addressed his notification to Russia— presumably on the assumption lhat Moscow has absolute control over Albania Yugoslavia an Bulgaria. .Russia aims al consolidating her position in the Balkans in order, among other things, to gain control of the Dardanelles and thus give her a hold on the eastern Mediterranean. But the eastern Mediter- r gW§ n .. long has been BrUain's sphere/of influence, and so wp see John- Bull clinging sturdily to his foothold, in .Greece. Therm roughly is the problem which/';Tsaldaris proposes .to place in the'Jap'of the United Nalibns.If he does so, histor^ may record him as the man who ' demonstrated whether this new peace organization really would work. -Certainly it s a question which could make or break the U. N. Herje .we have a great issue which lies ^yarely between two of the three >rnajor powers — Russia and Britain — and with America having very decided interests in the solution However, il might be well %il il should come up for scltlement right now. :-.'or the trend in the eastern Mediterranean doesn't encourage optimism as things stand. In .short, the realignment of the zones,, of influence in Europe would seem'to have proceeded about as far as it can without causing a break. I take it that it was to prevent such a break that the United Nations was formed. ' : Triplets intelligence Officer's Book Gives Lowdown Behind the Scenes in Jap Surrender By J. M. ROBERTS, JR.

Aluminum Workers Seek her Wages Pittsburgh, Dec. 2 — OT— James Thimmes, vice-president of the CIO United Steel Workers, said today a "substantial wage increase" and guaranteed annual wage will be among tho demands presented to the Aluminum Company of America at contract ncgotialions starting tomorrow. He said Ihe union will also seek an "improved vacation plan," health and welfare foundation and union shop. The present contract, expiring Friday, provides for maintenance of union membership. Tho contract demands were discussed generally at a meetmg of the union's negotiating committee yesterday. Thimmes said more specific demands would not be disclosed until after the union's wage policy committee meets Doc. 18 and 19 to shape up demands to be presented to all the nation's steel plants under contract with the CIO union.- Thimmes said that since certain demands like the wage increase and amount of guaranteed annual pay will not be known until the wage committee acts, the union will negotiate with the aluminum company on other points and probably extend the contract until after the committee meeting. Thimmes explained that the. guaranteed annual wage will be' built on the basis of "52 weeks' pay in a year.'.' In discussing the wage increase to be sought for steel workers generally, CIO President Philip Murray said here Saturday night thai the mill employes "are making $13.04 less, accbrding lo Ihe actual value of the dollar, than -,hey were making in April of 1945." "Wo are not asking for inflation," he told a meeting of union district otficials. "We ihink \he steel induslry can make substantial pay increases without necessarily increasing the cost of their commodity." "It is anticipated that in the next quarter steel profits will amount to $125,000,000. This next year will be the greatest steel year in history. Therefore the industry is in a position to make these increases." Plants involved are at Alcoa, Tenn.; Badin, N. C.; Bauxite, Ark.; Brookfield, 111.; Delroit, Mich. ;Drury, Ark.; Edgewater, Wash.; Mobile. Ala.; Monroe, N. J.; Fairfiold, Conn.; Mead, Wash.; Mobile, Ala.; Monroe, Mich.; Newark, O.; New Kensington, Pa.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Trentwood, Wash.; and Timitdale, Ore minds of the "utter destruction tears their militarists still were seeking lo implant. Informed circles immediately spotted the letter as something out of Ihe ordinary, as in fuel, an official communication designed lo be picked up and communicated lo Tokyo, and fingers began lo point at Capt. Ellis M. Zacharias of U.S. naval intelligence, then assigned to the Office of War Information. Zacharias had been trying for some time, using information gathered during many years, to reach the Japanese through psychological warfare. The revelations by Japanese after the war, and of the .Pearl Harbor investigation, soon had people talking about him as one of Die major factors — along with atom bombs, B-29s, Haisey's and Mitcher's carriers, Nimitz and MacArthur, and the submarine experts — in avoiding an invasion. Now Zacharias has written "Secret Missions," 11 book which make its appearance -today, that is a mosl inlcresling contribution lo postwar understanding of how things go in this world, and a warning of the necessity for improved peactime military intelligence. He goes back long before the war for incidents of Japanese, German and Russian espionage in America, and describes years of work which he contends led up to an accurate analysis of Japanese intentions in 1941 which, had it not been more or less ignored, might have prevenled Pearl Harbor. But, although Zacharias never mentions the subject himself, the book also contains some lessons on a very lively current problem. The United States has proposed to yield the secrets of power to international atomic control whenever an effective inspection system has been set up to prevent ils mililary use. Tho problem of military inspection is inherent in other issues before .the Uniled Nations. The British have just failed to gel il used as a check on Ihe .veracity of forlh- coming reports on the size and deployment of armies. .It undoubtedly will come up again in any discussion of disarmament. It is obvious thai it is going to be one of the reliances in whatever machinery is evolved. Soviet Foreign Minister peace V. M. |Molotov's statement yesterday accepting the principle of international inspection machinery along with other statements in this field make it certain it will be one of the prime factors in discussions.

O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Frequent washing of the hair is not harmful. It docs not produce baldness, premature grayness, or any hair disease. The scalp, as well as the hair; requires frequent thorough, washing with feoap and'water. This practice is in no sense harmful, either.- An understanding of hair structure should be the basis for scalp and hair hygiene. Tho average scalp contains more lhan 100,000 hairs, and each one-is made up of three layers. The outer layers consist of flat,'overlapping cells .resembling shingles; the middle layer contains cells which arc arranged along the long axis of the hair to make it flexible; and the inner layer consists of a group of cells extending through the center of the shaft.

But committee members indi- catcd they would i'ire questions running the gamut of the issues in the critical coal strike. C. Girard Davidson, assistant in- tcrior secretary, told the committee last Wednesday that the de- •lartment has under active consideration" use of the pipelines for movement of gas during the eastern coal shortage. Ho added, however, that no decision had been reached. Davidson's disclosure was supplemented Saturday by a statement from Ralph K. Davis, acting director of the department's oil some of them have only the outer iind middle layers of cells. Around each hair there are several oil glands which open on the skin near the root. At the base of each hair the skin is arranged to form a tiny bowl through which the hair receives its blood supply. Hair grows at a rate of aboul one- half inch per month, and shaving or cutting docs not make it return any thicker or coarser. Whether hair is straight or curly depends upon tho shape of the hah in tho scalp; naturally curly hair is colled at the base. Baldness, especially in men, is largely the result of an inherited tendency, and Ihosc who lose their hair before they reach the age of 30 can do little ot prevent the loss Hair may fall out after an illness or in diseases of the- endocrine glands, but there is no proof that wearing a light hat may cause baldness. Hair should bo washed as often as it is soiled, for Ihe surface col lection of oil and dirt interferes with its natural luster. There are small openings that hold oil in the hair's middle layer of cells, and it is this oil which gives hair its sheen. Gray hair results from tho trap- pint! of an extra amount of air within the hair and failure to produce sufficient coloring matter. Brush Hair Daily A patient with acne or pimples should pay special attention to hair cleanliness, as his skin condition is made worse by dirty hairs falling over his face. On a normal scalp there is an accumulation of colls which come from surface shedding, but oily ac- :omes on lop of last week's Ho manian election which was re garded with concern by both Washington and London. There was a heavy Communist majority, and acting U. S. Secretary of State Dean Achcson said that there was no free and unfettered election as Romania had promised. Some diplomatic experts in Washington have commented that the forthcoming election in Poland will be the- first held in that country in mid-winter — a period which ordinarily produces such severe weather that it might keep much of Hie rural population away from the polls. Should this.be the case in January, the largely conserva- Uvc peasanls might be unable to vote while the Red industrial centers would be unhampered. It would be interesting to know lust how much Washington and The toughest trulh which the world faces at Ihis moment is that there is nothing in common politically, economically or socially between Russian communism and western Western democracy. All the quarrels which have been disrupting the Allied conferences and the deliberations of the United Nations revolve about that truth. If it weren't for this one difference there would be harmony and there would be no spcculalion aboul whelhcr a third world war must be fought. But to gel back to our multons —Poland and the Balkans. All of eastern Europe, the Balkans and Central Europe up lo the western frontier of Poland has been Jogged down in Moscow's books as falling definitely and irrevocably within th Russian zone of influence. Greece still is outside tho fold, but communism is after it, and Austria also is a stale which the Soviet Union feels belongs within her new political empire. It would, of course, be wishful thinking lo believe that elections in lhal big area wouldn't be patterned after the Russian syste That is a one-party system, and the one part is Communist. To be sure some of the elections have had more lhan the one parly, taut the conduct of those elections had bocn challenged by non-Communists who declared Ihat they were deprived of their voles by one scheme or anolher.

S. Barton, Hoi Springs, to pay the stale of Tennessee al the rate of $400 annually from April 24, 1933 for Ihe care of his divorced wife, Lorella, in the central Tennessee hospital at Nashville. Dr. Barton was appolnled guardian for his wife in 1921 after she was committed to the hospital. He obtained a Utah divorce in 1926 and ceased making payments for Mrs. Barton's care in 1933. Miller Chancery was sustained in absolving Mr. and Mrs. A. A.

The courl held lhal Ihe company was barred by by Ihe three-year Statute of Limitations from recoverint the taxes. that in some instances the government had not filed notices of disputes with WSB. By this questioning of Collisson, the UMW counsel apparently sought to prove there had been no interference with the "sovereign" functions of government and thus, that Judge Goldborough's "stop strike" restraining order was void. Goldsborough has held that the sovereign power is involved and that the Norris-LaGuardia act, restricting use of court injunctions in labor disputes, does not apply in this case. As the hour approached (9 a. m., CST) for resumption of the case before U. S. District Judge T. Alan Goldsborough, there was no sign of a crack in the strike, now in its twelfth day. 1. Southern Coal Mine Owners gathered lo thresh out sharp differences as to whether contract negotiations should be re-opened with the United Mine Workers. If a contract agreement could be reached, it would open the way for ending- the strike and returning the mines, now held by the government, to private operations. 2. Surveys indicated that 1,000,000 persons in coal-dependent industries may be out of work by the end of the week if the walkout of 400,000 miners continues. Over the week-end the jobless total hit the 100,000 mark. Testimony from cabinet-level witnesses was delayed by cross-examinations of Navy Captain N. H.

II was Lewis' disregard for the order which led to Ihe contempt charge. These officials include Secretary of Interior Krug, who signed for the government the coal contracl which Lewis has declared void; Secrelary of War Palterson, Secretary of tne Navy Forrestal, Civilian Production Adminislralor John D. Small and Defense Transportation Director J. Monroe Johnson. There were increasing indicalions that the court battle will be a long one. Government atlorneys eslimaled that their case against Lewis may be completed by Wednesday. After that, the defense plans at least two days of rebuttal arguments, and more time may be needed if wil- nesses for the union leader are called. And a hearing on the restraining order probably will follow the con- tempi trial. If Lewis is found guilty of contempt—and Goldsborough has said llatly lhal he beilieves Lewis is guilty—the union plans to carry the fight to the Circuit Court of Appeals. With this in mind, the UMW leader's attorneys are building a case in the present trial designed to show thai government operation of the mines it seized is only a "token operation," and lhat for this reason the sovereign power of the government is not involved. Goldsborough held that it was when he ruled last week that the Act does not apply in the Lewis Norris-LaGuardia anti-Injunction case. He said the court had a right to enjoin a labor union when a "potenlial public calamily" threatened. Over the week-end, a spokesman for the coal mines administration announced that "numerous" applications for fines of $1 to $2 a day against individual striking coal miners have been approved by the government. Fines for contracl violations—intended to prevent wildcat strikes— are authorized under the Krug- Lewis agreement. They could nol be collecled until the present walkout ends and, when deducted from pay envelopes, would be paid into a union medical and hospital fund. There was also much talk about Ihe case over the week end. Senator Ball (R-Minn) said in a radio debate yesterday that the strike is in "defiance" of the War Labor Disputes Acl and it" is more like an insurrection than a labor dispute." Arguing against Ball on the issue, Eugene Cotlon, Assistant CIO general counsel, declared: "The simple fact is that where a court issues a restraining order con ccived to be a violation of a constitutional right, there is tridiiioiv al right lo lest lhal order."
