UP> —Rep. Patman (D-Tex) thinks it's about time Congress did something to give some" legal dignity to the expression "two bits"—a quarter, that Is. He introduced a bill yesterday to authorize the coinage of "bits" and "half-bits." The "bit" would be worth twelve and one-half cents and would contain a little more silver than a dime. The "half-bit" would be worth six and one-quarter rents and presumably would be made of nickel and copper, although Patman's bill doesn't specify that. ^ Coroner's Office Balance Is $1645 EDWARDSVILLK, Jan. 13 — Total fee receipts of $',2095, which after deductions of $350 for clerk hire and $100 for travel expense left $1645 net earnings ns the salary of the office for the half- year ending Nov. 30, are shown in the audited semi-annual report of Coroner Ben F, Staten of Alton.

Of Union Electric'* 7000 gas customers in Alton, about 25 percent, use gas to heat their homes. One situation that has developed as a result of difficulties In getting coal, Crivello noted, is that when coal heating units breakdown, the tendency has heen recently for customers to convert to gas rather than repair the unit, for coal firing again. Ho said he had three incidents of that nature come to his attention this week. One factor that may retard conversion to gas or oil heat in the area Is the tendency of home owners to. avoid a change over in winter. ur.J,' 1 S> c - of WASHINGTON, ,Tnn. 13. (Jpi— The U. S. Chamber of Commerce today reported n "critical" coal shortage in 36 cities, hard on the heels of President Truman's denial that the three-day mine week ins created n conl emergency. Tho chamber statement apparently was prepared before Mr Jruman's indication to his news •onference yesterday that he has 10 Immediate plans to force full production In the conl fields by ising his Tnft-Hartley Act emergency injunction powers agninst John L, 'Lewis' United Mine Workers. The chamber reported that It had surveyed areas In 10 "principal bituminous coal using states," with this result: "With an average of less than even days' supply In dealers' lands In 36 average sized towns urveyed, telegraphed advices from hanihers of commerce in these itles reveal that widespread suf- erlng nnd hardship has been Rent Hikes Total $88,511 in 19*49 In St. Louis Area Monthly rent Increases totalling $88,511 were granted on 13,784 dwelling units in the St. Louis rent nrea during the 12 months of 1949 i| was announced today by Grover C. Vandover, area rent director, In a press release from the office of the housing expediter, St. Louis. He snid approximately 81 percent of landlord petitions for legal increases on various grounds were granted. The average monthly increase per unit was $6.43. On the service-to-tenants side of the rent office ledger, there was a grand total in 1949 of $176,811 In i«funds to tenants for rent over charges. Of this, $158,175 was In voluntary refunds by landlords In 1656 cases without court action, or an average of $95.51 a case. The additional sum of $18,636 was refunded by court, order after those overcharge cases which were not settled on the Voluntary plan resulted In civil suits. "The outstanding development of the year was the number of icnl Increases granted to rental property owners," snid Vandover. "This was due, In part, to the now fnir net operating income principle which Congress added to the law, but also to the willingness of landlords to improve their rental properties, or to provide new equipment. services, compensated for by increased rents." He said that on the new grounds of fair net. operating income, which became effective in May, the average increase per living unit n small structures' was $6.75. $15 percent ot such petitions were ;ranted 19 Indictments In Circuit Court EDWARDSVILLE, Jan. 13 — Nineteen indictments nnd three lot-true bills were returned to Judge R.

Moody, president of he Southern Cool Producers As- ocintlon, who has been saying ail long that there is an emergency, By HOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 13 — (f\ — Fred Allen, a man with high blood pressure and a low regard for Hollywood, .arrived here In « rainstorm. His comment: "I thought God was weeping over the state of the movie business." > Allen Is here briefly to guest, on some radio shows. There is no chance that he will settle In Hollywood, however. ' "This is no place for an actor to live," he said. "They come and go too fast. The first time I was out here, Laura La Plant was the rage. The next was Harry Langdon, and so on," Allen cited his receptions to Illustrate the fickle nature of Hollywood : "When I came out here to do a picture a few years ago, my hotel room looked like • funeral parlor with all the flower*. When I came out last .fall there were several bouquets.'" He then ppinted at' his current gifts: Two small clumps of flowers and two baskets of fruit. "Next time, I'll get on tangerine," he predicted. The comedian is off the air this season on doctor's orders. He feels that radio Is dead, anyway. "It was doomed from the -start," he said. "The networks cared only about selling their time, the advertising agencies about getting their 15 percent -commission and the sponsors about selling their product. Nobody rared about entertainment." New Yorkers talk only about television now, he told me. "Everything Is Hopalong Gas- sidy," he said. "Kids run around In cowboy suits. Even women in the drug stores ride the stools sidesaddle." Allen himself will plunge into TV next fall. NBC has given him free rein for whatever he wants In the new medium, But don't get the idea that he predicts a rosy future for TV. "People sit in one room all evening and peer at a little screen!" he commented. "It won't be long before the art of conversation is dead." The trouble with TV entertainment, he added, is that "programs are designed in terms of vaudeville, not video. People like Milton Berle play to a bunch of indigent morons who attend free television shows, not viewers in the lomes." Allen's pessimism extends beyond TV. "I predict," he said with a long igh, "that the morons of this coun- .ry will eventually take over in- .elligent people and establish some kind of Cretin civilization as their in the sky." day and in session through Wednesday, returned -to its- quarters this morning to complete its work before reporting to Judge Griffith.
