Final passage on a voice vote found the measure stiJl retaining tne controversial clause banning use of Commodity Credit corporation funds for ;,ale of government- controlled surplus crops— a clause which drew strenuous objections from President Roosevelt. The chief executive told a press conference today that House approval of that clause belonged in the category- of developments which were r.ot contributing to the progress of the efforts to check inflation. Retention of that clause — even in its modified form permitting sale of some of the surplus crops for livestock feed— brought speculation in some quarters on" the possibility that it might result in veto of the entive measure. Buy A Defense Bond TODAY1 Specialist In Disorders of the Foot DR, MARSHALL HARVEY CHIROPODIST 1103 AVE. K. PH. 7341 Knife And Fork Club (Continued From Page One) about what we're going to do after the \var . . . Win the war first and then we can decide what to do ... "All of us are conscious that Palestine is the Holy Land of Christians and Jews, but too few of us are aware, I'm afraid, that it is also the HoJy Land of the Moslems, that Christ was also a great prophet of Islam." "Jerusalem is also a part and parcel of the heritage of the Moslem world and the control of the city it. of ex• treme importance, on that final day of judgment . . , The Moslem world is united on that one issue." Citing repeated attempts on the part of various leaders in America to force the issue that a home for the Jews must be established in Palestine after the war, Mr. Crabites declared the Moslems have become convinced that American cooperation with England in the war was contingent upon Palestine being turned over to the Jews after the war and that in the event of a victory by the Allies the Holy Land will become a national home for the Jews. He cited the placing of a million troops in the Mediterranean area by the British as evidence of the growing resentment of the Moslems against England in the war. He declared a personal message to Moslem leaders on the part of President Roosevelt would go a long way toward relieving this pressure but said the President was awaiting public opinion to guide him in the action. He declared the Jews as a race could do more to solve the question and emphasized that today "is not the moment to assert their God-Given right for a home in Palestine." He said there had been no trouble between Arabs and Jews in the Holy Land until 1920 when "muddling and bungling by England" caused riots. He concluded by remarking that the situation would remedy itself "if we stupid Christians stop our own bungling." Crabites a noted author, and scholar and until recently a member of the staff of Louisiana State university, has spent more than 2D years in Egypt. He was introduced by Dr. W. B. Irvin. superintendent of schools. Dr. J. T. Krueger, president, presided at the dinner. Japs On Solomons?

Likely To Strike Disclosing that the brilliant American-British air arm o£ Burma figured largely in his plans for the defense of eastern India; Sir Archibald said plaintly that he thought the enemy was more likely to strike now into upper Burma, in an effort to cut Allied communication to China, than to* attempt an immediate invasion of India proper. At the same time he suggested that, as an antidote for the general and justified gloom, the Allies might take some hope from a number of factors, including the fact that Soviet Russia was "a pistol pointed at the heart" of Japan. Charges Denied At Poll Tax Hearing BROWNSVILLE, March 13. W 1 ) —Judge -Harbert Davenport asserted today there was 110 truth to testimony before a Senate subcommittee yesterday that the late Jim Wells paid .poll taxes for 100,000 persons living along the Rio Grande.

Silliman Evans, who once lived in Texas and now publishes the Nashville Tennesseean, told the sub-committeemen that votes in states requiring poll taxes were for sale. He was one of several witnesses to urge congressional prohibition of poll tax payments in eight southern states.
