He filed suit in district court for the return of a $100 down payment on a new home he bought from Leslie and Mary Anthony. He also asked $55 in moving costs. When he bought the home, Osborne said, he didn't know it was in the process of being condemned by the city.

The charge was placed against Otto Burns, Kansas City. Police Officers John F. Flavin and John P. Clifford, Jr., said Joel Hulsey, 67, Marietta, Ga., reported he put up $22,500 after a chance acquaintance offered to cut him in on winnings in a high stake poker game. The game was between 2 of 3 men Hulsey met at nearby Excelsior Springs, Mo., last December 10. Toft Declines to Reply on Radio to Truman Speech Washington, (fi>) —Senator Taft (R.-Ohio), said Wednesday he has declined invitations of radio chains to give a republican answer to President Truman's state of the union message. In the past Taft, as chairman of the senate republican policy committee, often has replied to Mr. Truman's proposals. The Ohioan was criticized by some of his GOP colleagues for this practice in the battle that preceded his re-election as policy chairman. "I don't want to give a hasty answer to what the president has to propose," Taft told a reporter. "There will be opportunity to reply after we have studied his message carefully." RETAIN HICKENLOOPER Washington, (/P)—Senator B. B. Hickenlooper (R.-Iowa), has been retained on the senate foreign relations committee, it was announced Wednesday. This was despite the fact that due to the democratic majority in the senate, only 5 of the 13 committee members are republicans. California was named for a 16th century writer's dream of a Utopia containing gold, pearls and beau- tibul black Amazons, according to Erwin G. Gudde's "California Place Names." Only 3 Legislators Oppose Hike in Control Board Fund (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is another in a series of stories on prospective legislation during the coming general assembly.) By GERALD BOGAN Iowa Daily Press Writer Des Moines, (IDPA)—Only 3 of the 106 legislators who responded to an Iowa Daily Press association questionnaire oppose increased appropriations for the board of control in order to hire more adequate personnel. Among house members, 6G said yes, 3 no, 5 were undecided and 5 gave no answer. Twenty-five senators said they favored more money for the board of control and 2 did not answer. One house member said he believed the legislature would have to increase appropriations "within reason and with emphasis on the adequate." Another said he favored granting more money but would expect "them to be able to work and not be social tea attend- ers. Double Request Preliminary board of control askings- are nearly double the amount appropriated by the 52nd general assembly. Total askings for department administration, support for the various institutions and capital improvements total $22,652,362, an increase of $10,919,002 over the amount granted by the last legislature. The board asked $255,450 for administrative expense, an increase of $36,850; $10,133,905 for support of the state institutions, up $2,619,145, and $12,363,017 for capital improvements, an increase of $10,919,002 over grants made in 1947. There no doubt will be some trimming of requests before the legislature actually gets the proposed budget for the next biennium. Both Gov. Robert D. Blue and Governor-elect William S. Beardsley have indicated they will cut appropriation askings. Personnel Director The board's requests include a provision for a personnel director for the 2,500 persons employed in state institutions. Board members have said they have been experiencing difficulty in getting top-flight personnel for some key positions in the state institutions because of salary demands. The board also has not been able to hire personnel to fill the positions TEENAGERS TAKE NOTICE! "MUSIC FOR MODERNS" Heard on KXEL at 6:30 P. M. Will Be Moved to 7:00 P. M.

Need for more adequate salaries for institutional employes long has been sought in some quarters. Some legislators say the state's "penny wise, pound foolish" policy of not supplying adequate salaries to attract the right type of personnel has resulted in some of the unrest at institutions. However, salaries have been increased and a maximum of $150 a month for hospital attendants compares favorable with wage scales in other midwestern states. Boy Finances Spree With Dad's Money Newton, N. Car., (U.R)—Carroll Temple, Jr., 15, kept mum Thursday about a 3-month spree in Florida on which his father accuses him of spending $50,000 lifted from the family safe deposit box. The teen-ager hinted that he had a pretty big time, though. When a reporter suggested that people might exaggerate his experiences if he refused to tell about them, young Temple replied: "I don't think you could." Otherwise he had nothing to say about his father's court suit against the First National Bank of Catawba county to recover $50,000 which he claims his son took. Carroll G. Temple, Sr., a Deer distributor, blamed the bank for allowing his son to get at the money in the deposit box. His suit said the boy went on his Florida splurge 18 months ago, when he was just past 14 years old. D. Locke Russell, attorney for elder Temple, said that the boy found his father's personal key to the box in its hiding place at home and then forged his father's name to obtain from the bank a 2nd key necessary to open the deposit chamber. Flies Plane From Behind Iron Curtain Munich, (U.R)—U. S. air force officers reported Thursday that a Hungarian plane carrying 21 passengers and a crew of 4 had fled Hungary and landed at nearby Riem airport. All were interned for questioning by the American counter-intelligence corps. The plane, a 2-engined transport owned by the Hungarian transport company Maszovlet, took off from Pels on a scheduled flight to Budapest. Its gasoline was exhausted when it landed at Munich. One report said everyone in the plane except 3 of the passengers were aware that the pilot intended to seek sanctuary outside the iron curtain. The pilot reportedly told authorities he was anti-soviet. Another report said the refugees roundly denounced the communist government in Budapest when they landed. DeGaulle Predicts Return to Power Paris, (/?) — Gen. Charles De Gaulle predicted Thursday he will come back to power this year, either through elections or ''some shock of incidents." Writing in the weekly paper of his "French peoples party" De Gaulle said: "We began our work for the public welfare in 1947. We grew to an immense force in 1948. We will lead a united French people to victory in 1949." The communists must be held in check, he wrote, and the parties that are "smoothing" France must "be swept away." (Interim Group in Final Meet Draft System for Job Classification Des M o i n e s, (U.R)—The Iowa legislative interim committee held its final meeting Thursday, to draft a bill lor a job classification system for state employes. The committee Wednesday approved a subcommittee recommendation for creation of a job classification council, which would consist of the state executive council. The committee also agreed to loan $10,000 to the new veterans bonus board until it receives funds from the first year's installment of a property tax levy. It turned down a request of the state conservation commission for release of $40,000 for the Cold Springs artificial lake and dam project Cass county. Meantime, the 35 newly-elected republican members of the house of representatives met at a noon "get-acquainted" luncheon called by Rep. James G. Armstrong, (R.- Waterloo), one of the freshman representatives. The luncheon is the first of 5 conferences preceding the convening of the legislature Monday.

"Traitors," they cried. "Shame." The plant is in Bochum, 30 rniles northeast of Duesseldorf. The manager, Franz-Josef Mueser, said there were no casualties in the brief scuffle. Early this week a group of workers formed 'a human wall around a machine and turned back 2 British officers and some Germans who sought to start the dismantling process. The plant is one of the largest steel mills in Germany. The Germans once believed it would be cut off the dismantling list. Gives Advice on Dress for Cold Weather Des Moines, (U.R) — The Iowa state department of health Thursday warned lowans to "keep active and wear warm but not too tight clothing" if they are out of doors in cold weather. "Chillblain or more serious frostr bite usually results from the slowing down of circulation due to inactivity when outdoors, or overexposure to cold," they said. Mittens, overshoes and earmuffs were recommended by the department. "It's better to be warm than too stylish." The department advised gentle massage with clean snow or cold water, gradually increasing the temperature of the water, if frostbite does occur. Named Conductor of Minneapolis Symphony Minneapolis, (U.R)—Antal Dorati, conductor of the Dallas symphony orchestra, Wednesday was named conductor of the Minneapolis symphony orchestra succeeding Dimitri Mitropoulos.
