Netherlands Ready to Admit She Can No Longer Hold Colonial Possessions Oklahoma Aggies Now Favored in Cage Tournament By PAUL FELDMAN Oklahoma City, Dec. 28 —(/P)— That old problem about the irresistible force meeting the immovable object crops up again in the finals of the all-college basketball tournament tonight when favored Oklahoma A. and M., seeks its third straight title against the Kansas Jayhawkers. The Aggies, wielding me of the finest defenses in the nation, swap buckets with a fast-breaking and rugged rebounding Kansas led by a trio of dead-eye dicks. Also, the contest rekindles the coaching feud between the Aggies' Hank Iba and the Jays' Or. Forrest C.' (Phog) Allen. Last week the Aggies stopped Kansas 47-37, and another victory would give Ifaa,an even break with Allen in the 18 New York, Dec. 28—In his first, startled reply to the terrible revelation that Franklin D. Roosevelt had prostituted the presidency to promote shady financial dealings for his benefit, Elliott Roosevelt issued a statement through his attorneys. The statement denied that President Roosevelt had done anything of the kind and salt! that any such charge was a damnable lie. Within a few months, the Treasury Department, under Henry Morgcnthau, whose regard for Franklin D. Roosevelt was close to reverence, was forced to submit to the Democratic Ways and Means committee of the House of Representatives absolute and undenied proof that the late president had hatched and put through a scheme to cheat John Hartford, of the A and P grocery chain, of $196,000 to defray Elliott's alimony obligations to his wife of that time and their two infant children. Two others who had loaned money to Elliott were marked for the same treatment. One, David G. Baird, an insurance man, gave up and took his trimming, although not as easily as Hartford. The other, Charles Harwood, who thought Roosevelt intended to give him an appointment as a federal judge, refused to surrender the collateral which Elliott had given him for his $25,000 touch when Jesse Jones, then Secretary of Commerce, of- By GLENN BABB ®~ AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Gradually the Netherlands, a community of some 9,000,000 Europeans, is putting into written form the admission that she no longer possesses the power to hold 70,000,000 Indonesians in colonial subjection. Into a series of agreements she is writing her hopes that despite the end of political domination the economic tics that before the war bound the Indies to the mother country can be salvaged. For the empire that is slipping away was one of the richest ever held by a European power; if it is lost completely it would be a disaster to Dutch economy whose effects might be felt throughout western Europe. The Netherlands East Indies formed one of the most glittering prizes for which the aggressors of World War Two reached out. But for their wealth of oil, rubber, tin and other basic commodities, the whole course of the Pacific war might have been different. Japan's warlords were of two minds, torn between a desire to grab the In- the results tor which Hollanders hope. It is to be noted that the agreement provides for a "perpetual union" only under the king or queen of the Netherlands, not under the crown or the government at the Hague. This tie is something like that which bound Iceland to Denmark before the war, and we have seen how easily that was lenninated.

EXPERT SAYS RATIONING MADE SWEDES HEALTHIER Stockholm —(.•?)— Does moderate food rationing have a favorable effect on public health?

In Ihe Swedish Medical Maga- ine the professor disclosed lhat eath sank from an average of 2 per 1,000 population in the Thirties to 9.9 in 1942, when ra- ions were lowest.

Therefore, he held onto his stock in Elliott's Texas state network. Subsequently, as President Roosevelt had foreseen, the stock came back and Harwood recouped. Hill Blackett, of Chicago, an advertising agent, was invited to dine at the While House with the president and Elliott's mother and Blackett recognised an atlempl lo persuade him to throw advertising business to their son's radio system. This man's experience also refutes Elliott's statement thai his father never inlerceded lo promote his inerests. Except in Elliott's general denial, utlered before the facls of Ihese cases were eslablished in detail, no member of the family nor any political adherent of President Roosevelt has ever challenged the disclosures in any particular. Another incident of the same kind for the same historical record comes to light. Victor Emanuel, a rich financier, who had met President Roosevelt only once, was invited to lunch with him in the While House. Emanuel is a close friend and business associate of Tom Girdler, of Republic Sleel. At that lunch, as Roosevelt's guest, Emanuel was asked to lend money to Elliott. Emanuel, who has large public utility interests, had been harassed and, he believed, unfairly by the Roosevelt administration. As the case was with John Hartford, who was being prosecuted by Roose- latter motive prevailed it might have been Vladivostok instead of Pearl Harbor, the United States might never have entered the war, the whole course of the conflict might have followed channels that challenge the imagination. But tne Japanese struck southward and so the fale of Holland's easlern empire, already put in the balance by Hitler's victories of 1940, was scaled. The colonial rule of the 9,000,000 over the 70,000,000 was ended. It is difficult to see any other outcome of the complicated negotiations now in progress. Some notable advances in the process have been recorded in recent days. A week ago today the lower house of the Netherlands Parliament gave overwhelming approval to the draft agreement initialled Nov. 15 on Ihe future status of xhe Indies. Christmas Day saw the establishment of the new government of the "Great East," a group of rich islands destined to form the second quil the cast of "Call Me Mister" and now is singing at the smart Corsair Club on the Champs Ely- sec in Paris .. . .

The basic draft agreement still has to be accepted by the Indonesians and after that there are months of negotiations before all details of the complex new setup are accepted. But the main outlines have been drawn in these bold, broad strokes: By Jan. 1, 1949, there is to be established with Holland's blessing the "sovereign, democratic slalo" of the United Stales of Indonesia, to be linked in "perpetual union" with the Netherlans as equal partners under Ihe king or queen of Ihe Netherlands.

Bromwich's change of mind caused non-playing Captains Walter Pate ot Ihc American team and Gerald Patterson of the Aus- sics to shuffle and re-shuffle several limes their lineups for the remaining singles. When Bromwich withdrew, Pate substituted Gnrdnar Mulloy of Miami, Fla., for Framcr, who was to have faced Bromwich in the lineup. Patterson named Quisl to fill the vacanl singles spol on his squad. Then il was announced the singles lineup would send Schrocder against Quist and Mulloy against Pails. Later another change was made when it was found such a switch was nol permitted under cup rules. Approaching the lime for today's match, the schedule | slood Mulloy vs. Quisl and Schrocder vs. Pails. Now, wilh Bromwich back in Ihe lineup, Mulloy instead of Schrocder will meet Pails.

TERMS OF SALE: On a credit of three months, the purchaser being required to execute a bond as velt's Deparlmenl of Juslice as a food monopolist, Mr. Emanuel was put in a mental position to hope that his troubles would cease if he should comply. Mr. Emanuel gave $7,500 to Roosevelt's first presidential campaign fund in 1932, through James A. Farley. He voted for him that once, but I am reliably told he never voted for Roosevelt again. His one previous meeting with Roosevelt had been casual. . At the lunch, the president of the United Slates asked a man whose business interests had been under constant fire from the government for a long time, whether his financial company would be interested in financing the purchase of some radio properties in Texas by Elliotl. The president's only purpose in arranging 'the luncheon meeting was to put this fiuestion lo Emanuel. He wanled Emanuel lo look into Ihe matter and decide whether Elliott's proposition struck him as a good investment Hartford had been completely casual aboul his loan.

Cox, the publisher of the Miami Daily News, who in 1920 was tho Democratic nominee for president against Warren G. Harding, with Roosevelt as his running- mate for vice-president. He related his experience to Mr. Cox. Mr. Cox had come out of Dayton, O., to be- ome governor of Ohio as one of he early Democratic Progressives, flr.

On the other hand, Hartford enter- luined the fleeting thought that his $200,000 loan might be the price of peace, but was hounded, as he thought, even though he gave up not only his notes but the collateral as well.

Tho I rick is to compromise the sucker, lo entice him into a questionable ii not plainly dishon- est position so that when he is trimmed he cannot complain wilh- out seeming lo incriminate himself.

Why that name? you wonder as you stumble out of Ml .Ida and lurch into Jczabel, or Ihe like, as Ihe train roars around a curve. The first car was named back in 1865. It was called the "Pioneer." It was completed in time that bore Ihe body of Abe Lincoln from Chicago to Springfield Illinois. Some of Ihe early sleeping cars were given lellers, A. B. C. and so on. Since there are only 20 letlers, lhal source soon was cxhausled and numbers were resorted to. This system was soon abandoned because the numbers conflicted with railroad car numbers. Finally, during the '70s il was decided lhat each car should be given an honesl-lo-goodncss Chrislian lame. Pullman officials appointed a committee on nomenclature. The names they selected were to indicate different types of accommodations. Parlor cars would bear feminine names or be christened afler birds or flowers. Observation cars would be named for mountains. A number of parlor cars later on were named for women prominent in the .fight for suffrage. There was a Susan B. Anlhony car and a Francos E. Willard. Other cars simply bore the names Abigail, Gertrude, Nancy, Cheryl, Jessica and other popular feminine names of the era. Nowadays some railroad companies ask lhal there parlor cars be named for cities and towns along their lines. There aro such names as Ford Cily, Plymouth, Buffalo, Passaic and French Lick in big letlers on Ihe dors. The advent of the lightweight, stream-lined trains inspired officials to name pullmans after sec- .ions peculiar lo the territory .hrough which Iho trains traveled. For instance, the Cily of Denver irain has cars bearing Ihc characteristic names of "Silver Dollar" and "Snowy Range." The City of Los Angele.'i train includes cars named "Litlle Nugget" and "Hose Bowl." The chief and Super Chief streamliners carry cars named ior Indian chiefs of Ihe greal southwest. . . ."Tsankawi," "Saydatoh" and "Tapacipa." Sleeping cars have been named for Alabama, Iowa River, Lake Michigan, Wake Island, Kit Carson, President Huoscvcll, Elks Club, K. Lee and Quvcu Anne.

Perhaps the most optimistic guess would be that construction of new dwellings will pursue the course which foo'd followed after price decontrol— more .abundance and higher prices. * Thai, we repeat, is optimistic. The pent-up demand for housing, unlike the similar demand for meal, cannot bo satisfied almost overnight. Substitutes for a place of one's own arc decidedly less salis- faclory than substitutes for steak. And there is no abundant supply Of building materials comparable lo Ihc abundance of callle on Ihe range in Ihe lasl days of OPA. The outlook would be plcasanler if the formerly scarce foods had ./leveled off at a price which, rc- •'flccting absorption of subsidies and increased cosls, showed only a reasonable advance. Unfortunately, in spite of all promises and pro- dictions, lhal hasn't happened ye).. And there is no reason to believe that Ihe slower process of house building will nol keep prices inflated for a matter of years, rather lhan weeks or months. It has been said, with an uncomfortably accurate sound of true prophecy, that the President was ,i{inviting a boom and bust in housing and real estale by his decision. Yet what was he to do? Certainly the controlled housing program wasn't doing the job. The reasons were various, and mosl of lliem centered in Washington. Effective lobbying against government control of building helped prevent a sensible, comprehensive program of housing legislation from being enacted. Inter-deparlmenlal quarrels didn't help any. In fact, the whole process of reasoning and , ^procedure seemed pretty badly " jumbled. The intention, of course, was lo do everything for Ihe veteran, and do it first. The program proceeded upon the assumption thai most veteran wanled ol buy houses. Dwellings planned under Ihe firsl price ceilings could scarcely have been livable, what with present material and labor cosls. And Ihc eventual grecs in 24 hours. Snow up to 30 inches was recorded in northern New England. Fifteen' deaths were attributed to exposure and over-exertion in the intense cold in the area yesterday. Temperatures of 15 to 20 below zero were forecast for Maine tonight/ Boston harbor virtually was immobilized by fog and storm. Two ships docked yesterday after almost 24-hour gropings through the mist from the lower harbor. The cold front which had been held in the northern section of the country for several days by strong warm air currents from the Gulf of Mexico burst its confines early Sunday and raced-'eastward bringing snow, freezing rain and severe winds lo Ihc eastern portion of the nalion. Al Camp Campbell, an army posl on the Tennessee - Kentucky border, a storm of hurricane proportions cul a swathe 1,000 yards wide through the quartermaster section and caused damage esti- malcd at $250,000. The U. S. Weather Bureau at Chicago said tho storm was moving northeastward up the Ohio river valley flanked by a cold front on Ihe wesl and a warm front on the east. As the storm passed, the cold air moved into its wake. Storm warnings were hoisted along the Atlantic coast from the I'D of Lona Island to Cape Hatleras, N. C., and winds of 40 to 50 miles per nour were predicted. The winds were expected to continue today with fog and rain squalls followed by snow along the northern section of the coast. The storm left highways icy in many parts of the nation and forced cancellation of airline flights in New York and Chicago. Rain, sleet and snow wore reported .in New York, Pennsylvania and New England reducing traffic to a crawl in New York City and delaying trains and buses throughout the area. Los Angeles reported everything sunny and warm.

Wiley said the official Republican position was mat all erne,;- gency- powers and wartime controls should be ended as soon as possible. But, he said, the party is pledged to do it in an "orderly manner" so the nation would not be left "helpless in the event of any domestic or foreign emergency." who have told United Press they would be such a plan. Joining the list today were Rep. Elberl Mitchell of Wesley and Rep. Aubrey., Turner of Rison. Their announcement came after Senator E. J. Butler of Forrest City said thai he will introduce a proposal into the 1947 general assembly, the object being to place the state in the wholesale liquor business. Butler does not favor taking over retail stores. On Saturday he was joined in his plan by Senator John S. Mosby of Lepanlo, Ark., and one other senator who has refused to be quoted. Three members of the ; House earlier said they would back some such proposal. 'They include N. M. Norton of Forrest City, Dick Wright of Arkadclphia, and Laud Payne of Piggotl. Nineteen representatives have told United Press "no" and ten have indicated they were undecided. A tolal of seven senators have selves as opposed, to. such» a plan and five told United Press they were undecided.

"I mov have to take a stand later on but at present I had rather nol enter the discussion," he said. Gromyko's statement was delivered in English to the atomic Commission under nev/sreel Kleigh lights and the flash of photographers bulbs. It broke a 10-day Soviet silence on merits of the Baruch program. Gromyko said that Baruch's proposal to remove the veto power over punishment of outlaw nations would "undermine" the entire program for atomic control. It also would violate the U. N. charter, he said, .which provides for the "rule of unanimity" among the Big Five powers. Baruch has said that the United States would not sign an atomic treaty which failed to outlaw the veto over punishment. He told the commission that "only those nations which intended to violate the trealy would want the veto." Gromyko, silling only a few feel from Baruch, replied today thai "such lighl-mindcd slalemenls are comment a play of words." . several "The fact that some one resorts (William to statements of such a kind can be explained only by the absence of more convincing arguments," Gromyko said. Gromyko reminded the commission that France also supported retention of the veto over punishment. He emphasized that "the Soviet government deems it necessary to state that the decision on prohibiting atomic 1 and olher weapons should not be postponed." He asked the : commission "lo proceed without delay with preparation of the international convention on the probhition of the production and use of atomic weapons and other major weapons adapatable to mass destruclipn."

Big Five powers went into today's meeting far short of the unanimity thai will be required. The Moscow announcement of Gromyko's promotion to the rank of deputy foreign minister of Russia came on Ihe eve of his policy statement. U. N. delegates generally regarded the new honor as recognition of Gromyko's UN work. Gromyko, former ambassador to Washington, has been the storm center of most U. N. controversies, but few delegales question thai ho has represenled effectively the Soviet policy. The stern - visaged, 37 - year- old Soviet delegate has become the key figure in the atomic energy controversy, and over the weekend seized the initiative on dis- aramenl by asking the security council to detail a disarmament program within three months. His request goes before the security council tomorrow. American and British spokesmen expressed fears that Gromyko was trying once more lo tie in atomic disarmament with general disarmament. Western power delegates generally have tried to avoid pulling all Ihe problems in one package, arguing lhal since alomic energy has so many peaceful uses, il musl be handled separalely from weapons lhal only destroy.

'"A representative of the Soviet command said that inasmuch as he had received no notification of the supposed arrival of the persons mentioned, these persons could not remain in port." The Pravda dispatch said that after the 48-hour deadline had expired — a time limit which it said the Americans themselves had established — the U. S. consul informed the Soviet representative that tho vessel could not leave on the appointed date, because the captain had been detained in the city of Dairen. The dispatch concluded by asserting thai Newton's report on the ultimatum and demand to leave port were "inventions" and could be appraised as the "methods of correspondents" to create a sensation. Newton's story was writcn for Ihe combined world press. The Pravda slory 'indicaled that the Russians do not regard the silualion as an "incident" and believe that they behaved correctly. Apparently they feel that the mat- ler is closed. By JACK BELL Washington, Dec. 30 (/P).— Senate Republican leaders' plans to divide up committee assignments at' an afternoon meeting bumped into a challenge from Senator Tobey (R- NH) today of their right to act now. In advance of the meeting, Tobey told reporters that a rule adopted by the Republican conference (th'e organization of Senate G. O. P. members) on Dec. 15, 1944, forbids making or approving any corn' mittee assignments until after Congress actually convenes. He took notice of statements by members 9f the outgoing Republican committee on committees that they were merely making recoriir mendations to the full group of 15 Republican senators and senators' that golden Shakespeare lo make such mighty bou- . from here a bud . ..of grace . . . and there a of rainbow grandue . . .

Haynie who resigned this month to accept a position as deputy sricru'f of Pulaskl County summarized police activilics from January 14, 1U46 through 10- day. This report was submitted to Mayor Albert Graves for presentation to Ihe cily council. Mr. Haynie will leave Hope January 1. The re- porl shows Ihc biggest normal year in history of the department. The report follows: Arrests—1,817 Fines collected •- 518.982 Finos released to slrccl department — $927 Fines served in Jail — $382 Fines appealed— $610 Finos suspended —$294 During Ihis period ihc department received and investigated 697 complaints and investigated 74 automobile accidents. A nightly check of doors of downtown busincs; houses revealed 17C left unlocked. Perhaps the biggcsl single item on the report included an estimated $18,427.20 in stolen properly recovered. This included 1C cars stolen recovered in Hope, Two Others File for City Offices Two more candidates filed over Ihc weekend bringing Ihe number to five seeking city offices, J. Pat Duffie, central committee announced today. Dorsey McRae, Jr. filed as alderman for Ward One, Opposing Remmcl Young. Dr. E. S. Richards, will seek the city recorder's post, a one year term. Harvey Ban- earlier filed for mayor and Frank Douglas is seeking the Ward Four alderman post. o Postoffice to Be Closed New Year's Day The Post Office will be closed on New Year's Day, Wednesdays January 1. There will be no window service and no cily or rural delivery. The public is urged lo buy on Tuesday Ihc supply of stamps necessary for first of the month mailings. Mail will be dispatched and placed in post office boxes the same as usual, and special delivery service will be maintained. Tobey called this committee a 'rump" group, but declared: "Any child of adolescence who doesn't know that those recommendations will gather the forces of a snowball is just kidding himself." Tobey's attitude and a bid by Senator Reed of Kansas for the Commerce C9mmittee chairmanship — tentatively assigned by the leaders to Senator White of Maine — raised the pro'spect of a sharp row in the G. O. P. meeting. Senator Butler (R-Neb) predicted to a reporter that a firm -stand by either or bolh of the leaders would "crumble" any effort to upset the- working assignments laid out in advance by White's commit* tee on committees. The Senate Republicans, who go to ba t in a party conference of all of their 51 members today (1:30 p.m. CST), were not alone, however, in their preoccupation with organization controversies. House Republicans will meet Thursday to decide a four-way battle for majority floor leadership under the general direction of Rep. Martin of Massachusetls, who is expected to be chosen speaker without party opposition. Wrapped up in the ' leadership fight are some of the ambitions of various potential GOP presidential candidates in 1948. Rep. Halleck of Indiana, who has ihe public backing of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York, ap parenlly holds an edge over Re; Clarence Brown of Ohio, genera,' regarded as backed by the T I'orccs, and Reps, Jenkins of f and Dirksen of Illinois.
