The operator was swamped with calls, and long distance calls •were placed on an emergency basis. Ware said thai the operators handled 300 calls in an hour last night compared to the usual 50 to 70 at the same period on Thursday nights. All firemen and fire equipment were placed on s, standby basis, except one or two water trucks which were taken to the dock area by Fire Chief A. 1* Lintelmaa. No other equipment, other than that owned by the refinery, was cailed into use, Bayiown's doctors who, by coincidence, were attending a meeting at the Baytown, Coaimunity house, or were at a banquet at the Tower, went to San Jacinto Memorial hospital to stand by. Nurses also were alerted, and preparations were made to evacuate San. Jaeinto hospital if necessary. All ambulances from Paul U. Lee ancJ Earthman Funeral home were taken to the dock area and held there until it was determined that ail casualties had been removed.

"We've already outfitted IS dogs, and it may end up being 25," said a spokesman for canine couturiere, which is handling the fashion end of things for dogs at a tea time show at the Savoy Plaza Hotel. Several hat designers claim they will be - snowing the biggest hats in town at the Sunday shows. Certainly the hats are the biggest of the last decade. 'Mine will be as large as coffee tables," Walter Florell said. Florell has made "about 70" hats to show at two different Easter Sunday shows. One entire group of Florell hats is velvet, which he says we'll be wearing this summer with chiffon and organza dresses. Most of the velvet hats are red. '•This is an important fashion note," Florell vowed. "Red velvet hats for summer... all shades of Series On 'Exceptional Children' The third in a, series of broadcasts dealing with exceptional children, will be heard at 5 p.m. Sunday over JRadio Station KREL.

"Poor Little Boy" is the name of the program scheduled for Sunday and the theme is the empact of family attitudes on exceptional children, those mentally or physi- retarded or handicapped. red, from orange to scarlet." Turbans,.'he added, were his second most important Easter display. The draped turbans sit straight over the forehead instead of draping down over the ears and the back of the head. Florell says he is striving for "the potentate look'." Mr. Fred of John Fredericks, •will show approximately 100 hats in three different fashion shows. He halted his frantic preparations long- enough to give a description. "Big... big... big... big," the designer said. "They are the biggest they have ever been." Mr. Fred. believes that big hats are becoming on almost any woman. They make a woman's face seem more delicate, he says, "and minimize <v <> body." Micol Fontana, the Eome designer chosen by Margaret Truman to make her wedding dress, will give her first Easter'Sunday fashion show here at the Hotel Plaza. The hats to go with her dresses were designed by American milliner Emme, who says they are "the largest ones in town." As for the dogs, something simple like a cashmere sweater with. a rhinestone collar is highly favored. One father - daughter dog combination will wear matching wool coats of ice blue. Daughter, the dog designer said, will also wear a flower beret. By CIIAKLKS MV MCCAJW United -I'rvss Foreign Analyst The United States is not going to be very popular in .Japan for some time to come. Tlie Japanese government, Japanese political 'parties and Japanese people generally resent President Eisenhower's' decision to go ahead with the H-bomb tests in the Marshall Islands next 'month. This resentment is likely to grow Jn the coming weeks. And it will be fanned not only by the Chinese Communists and Soviet Russians but, undoubtedly, by "neutralists" like Prime Minister Jawaharlnl Nehru of India. There is no indication, fortunately that in the long run the friendly relations between the United States and Japan will suffer. ; But Japanese ill-feeling seems sure to continue. Japanese opposition to H-bomb experiments stems from the big tests held in March. 1954. * At that time radioactive fallout contaminated 7,000 square miles of the Pacific. The waters involved are used by Japanese fishing boats. There was practically a "national panic in Japan for fear that fish sold-after the tests were poisoned. To make it worse, the crew of one fishing trawler far from the test area were dusted by fall-out. One of the 23 men died later. It developed, long after the tests, that the fish were not poisonous and that the crewman of the trawler Fortunate Dragon who died 'was the victim ot a liver complaint. Nevertheless the United States paid $2 million damages as a gesture of good will. All this did not convince the Japanese that the H-bomb tests were not a real threat. As far back as October. 1954, Jffipnn started protesting officially against'any new H-bomb tests. Immediately after the announcement .by the "-Atomic Energy'Com- mission last January of the new tests,. Japan sent a note of protest. Japan also asked a guarantee in advance that the United States would pay for any damage or inconvenience the tests might cause to its shipping or its fishing industry. This protest was rejected. But the United States promised to consider any solid claims oC specific damage. It is now disclosed that President Eisenhower himself decided that the tests must go on. The United Nations Security Council has informed that there is no alternative. "It is the conviction of the United States that it has a responsibility not only to its people but to all the people ot the free world to maintain at a maximum its ca- serve peace." the UN was told. That argument, when the stark facts of life are considered, seems unanswerable. But it will not satis fy Japan.

Although there is no all-out drive being promoted in Baytown, citizens are urged to donate to the fund, Mrs. Hugh Echols Jr., executive board member of the chapter, said Friday. Spring is the worst time of the year for disasters but already this year floods and other tragedies have drained the national fund, she saicf.

(Continued .From Pajre" One) was "a Democrat first and an American second." Rayburn made the first public proposal that Johnson be chosen for the dual role of head of the convention delegation and favorite son nominee for president. Shivers has also been mentioned as a possible leader of the Texas convention delegation. Johnson said Thursday the issue in Texas was whether the party will support the Democratic nominee or will "attempt to lead the Democrats into the Republican party." . • Shivers said, "I intend to be an American first and a Democrat second. I don't believe in putting the interests of any political party above the interests of our nation —and no amount of political spleen from Washington will change my mind on that." Rayburn said, "I'm still for" Johnson. Johnson has said he is willing to head the delegation if he can speak for a united party. Shivers said he did not like to get into an argument with anyone, "particularly not with my old friend Lyndon Johnson." 'I thought I made my friendship and respect for him quite clear," Shivers said. But the governor added, "I simply believe that Lyndon Johnson, Allan Shivers or anyone else who seek either or both of these honors-should be on record as far as his \iews on certain vital issues are concerned." Rayburn was asked whether the Johnson-Rayburn forces can beat the Shivers faction in a fight for party control at the state convention in May. "That's what we intend to do." Rayburn said. "I belong to no faction except the Democratic party. If that angers some people, they may make .the most of it. I think our situation today requires genuine leadership and political integrity." • , • . • HI IS 31 inches taller than she, but she got her bachelor ot arts degree at the same Umo he did (he took the high road, sho took the low road).
