Its unprelentiousness tquite behes its present importance. lor it affords temporary shelter and food not only to business folk but to diplomats, writers, artists. In fact, to such a diversity from all parts of the United States that frequently it houses a fairly comprehensive cross section of Amer- ^ican life. By coincidence the state of" California is the home of its ^Yankee manager — R. B. Lewis, of Taft. Its about the only hotel in all Paris where warmth and food can be had these days by persons of moderate means. The answer to this anomaly, in ,a .capital which is just about striped of normal accommoda- ^tions, is that the California service is sponsored by the United States Department of State, which buys food from the American Army and thus can cater at moderate ' "prices to needs of transient Ameri- 'cans. This is indeed a godsend to the traveler, because the alterna- Itives to the California are the scattered black market hotels which /charge prices that stagger even the ; Sniillionaire. ' By blac kmarket hotels I mean 'those which purchase their food. :,i-wines and coal from the black _/markets and fix their prices acv cprdingly. ,*-"In one of these places vou mav J pay §20 for a fairly modest din- r and if you like good wines the is the limit of your bill. -Still, it isn't merely of food and .comfort that we write. The California affords these things, but it renders perhaps a far greater 'service in providing a meeting "place for an exchange of information among business men .regarding the . prospects of trarte in Erance and in other continental countries. **>The recent devaluation of the franc of course was calculated to give French trade a fillip. Just what the effect will be remains to ber seen, but as your correspondent views prospects from a comfortable room in the California, it looks as though it would be a con- sjgerable time: before French products would be available for sale point ,is, as I see it, that Cleaned and Rebuilt *•* v the factory way. *^w* t v_ -•• • •-• • •'••:•'.'•- •• ':: HALL'S HAT SHOP .East 2nd St. , , Phone 78 '>• Alterations £, 'Praised While You "Walt • Hope Star Star of Hope 1899; Press 1927, Consolidated January 18, 1929 Published every weekday afternoon by Star Publishing Co., Inc.

That produc- lion must hinge on Ihe availability of raw materials. Those aren't .to be had in Europe and consequently must come from other parts of the world — and when you say "other parts of the world" the thoughts of the business man naturally center on North and Soulh America in connection with early supplies. As things now stand, many countries of Europe aren't even in position to engage in- barter trade. Henry Frnka is New Coach' at Tulane By KRIS KREEGER New Orleans, Jan. 5 — (I?) — Tulane university has signed a new head football coach with a penchant for producing. bowl teams, which Tulane needs to go with its nice, big Sugar Bowlsta- dium. The new grid boss "is Henry Frnka, who has.- steered his Tulsa University team into a postseason "classic" each of the five seasons he has coached at the Dklahoma school. Meanwhile he las won three Missouri Valley con- 'erence championships. Appointment of Frnka was made known last might five hours after announcement that Claude "Little Monk" Simons, Jr., head coach at Tulane for four years, had relinquished the post to become director of athletics. Frnka took the Hurricane to the Sun Bowl in 1942, brought it to the Sugar , Bowl the following two years, to the Orange Bowl in 1945 and to the oil bowl this month. Twelve Sugar Bowl games have been played in Tulane stadium, but Tulane teams have played in only two of them, in 1935 and 1940. The school sent a team to the 1932 Rose Bowl.

Kok suffered a broken artery in his nose in a first half spill but returned for brief action in the final heat. The big center, however, was high scorer with 17 points. "Parson Bill" Flynt, stellar guard, was second high for the Arkansans with 12. Guard Al Madsen was high for the Texans with 14 counters .with Forward ,Roy Cox adding 13. Height proved a great advantage to Arkansas, still operating without Ihe services of several regulars who are injured or oul of the lineup for other reasons. The count was tied or too close for comfort throughout much of Ihe first half, bul Arkansas pulled bolh teams. It was the conference opener foi way to a 23-15 halftimc lead.

The long-driving Virginian, winner of lasl year's Los Angeles open golf tourney, over this same course, served sizUing notice he's the man to beat again by posting a 34-34—68 in yesterday's first round of the 1946 tournament.

'I Definitely Expect to Win' Says, Conn Hot Springs, Jan. 5 —(/I 1 )— The next heavyweight boxing champion of the world will be Billy Conn — believes Billy Conn, and he's banking on "them thnr" hills of Arkansas to help hi mreach his goal. The Pittsburgh battler, whose faulty strategy probably cost him the title almost five years ago, went into training here today for his June bout wilh Champion Joe LouiSi which Conn says probably will lie staged at New York's Yankee Stadium. Arriving here yesterday with Trainer Fred Fierro and Milton Jaffce, a close companion, Conn declared he was "very confident" he would wallop the Brown Bomber this lime. "I definitely expect to win the fight," he said. The challenger, who also trained here five years ago, will be in training here for five weeks. His plans, include hiking over the mountains, playing golf, taking the Spa's famed hot baths. Oaklawn Park's one-mile racetrack will be the scene of his road work, and he'll also drill in a Hot Springs gymnasium. Conn, who recently ended a three-year hitch in the army, is primarily concerned with his weight. Now scaling 193 pounds, he hopes to lose 13 pounds before winding up his Hoi Springs training activities. Otherwise, the 28-year-old boxer is in excellent condition and appears ready to go now. Conn gave 235 ring exhibitions for servicemen in the European theater to help keep in trim. The Pittsburgh Kid's troupe is in iccorcl on the probable outcome of lis second meeting with Louis. Vainer Fierro said he thought ~onn was a "sure thing" and Jaf- cc echoed a hearty "amen." In the 1941 meeting the heavy- vcighls, Louis knocked oul Conn in he 13th round when an apparent cad in points made Billy too anxious and tricked him into changing his strategy from boxing to slug- By GAYLE TALBOT (For Hugh Fullerton, Jr.) New York, Jan. 5 — (ff) —Seldom has any athlelic tonm drawn such .inqualiticd raves from metropolitan critics as the Wyoming basket- jail five which manhandled Long Island Univ. here this week.

They would slarl on me once 'inqile; asking me aboul my boy friends, so I'd have to hand out some 1 fancy stories I'd heard some waitress tell at another stand.' Williams said he had decided that "most women bring their roubles on Ihemselvcs because if you don't encourage men Ihey won'l bolher you to much." "I had a close call once when I _ot drunk in Chicago, though," he recalled. "A soldier asked me to go to a night club with him after I got through work, and I had had enough to drink so I lost my cau- .ion.

Scientific research "relevant to national interest" covers a lot of territory, and runs into a lot of money. Previously this research has been HOMO bv private industry at considerable espouse. Relieved of thai expense, manufacturers with research departments would show a greater profit which in turn would benefit their stockholders and employes. B.ut the bill would be paid by several million taxpayers who , ''-'arc neither employers, employes nor stockholders in these industries. How big the bill should be and what it should pay for are things that would have to be examined earcfuljy in writing the law that the scientists want to help draft. But certainly there are areas of scientific inquiry, notably those pelnining to national defense and national health, in which clearer and more comprehensive programs of development are needed. Na' tional direction of these programs --•would seem logical. Human use of controlled atomic energy has forced the scientists out of their laboratories and into the world of statecraft and politics. It has given them a sense of responsibility for the tremendous destructive power which they alone can devise. And most of us would feel more comfortable if they, not the politicians, were formally assigned that responsibility. It would probably be a good , Dining if we could contrive to work ij'the research scientists more intimately itito our everyday routine of government and business. For the most part they seem to be pretty good guys— honest, humble and humane, as well as wise. The world can never have too many such men helping to run its affairs.

The Public Roads Administration says thai Ihc state's highway planners -also have projects estimated to cost $27,034,000 in the blueprint stage. Although congress has appropri- • ated only .$25,000,000 of a $1,!>00,000,000 three-year national highway program, it lias authorized stales to contract with Iho governmenl for their full share of the first year's allotment of federal funds— $500,000,000. This means lhal $7,515,501 is immediately available tp Arkansas with which to make ils first-year contracts. The slate's total of federal aid during the three-year period is ex peeled by Iho Public Roads Administration to approximate $23,1 000,000. Contracts covered by the 'first allotment may be lei any time within the next Iff monlhs. U. S. funds, which generally musl be matched dollar-for-dollar from state coffers, may be used for farm-to-markol roads and ,'ln towns of 5,000 population, as well as on the regular federal-aid highway system. Arkansas' planned and in-the- makiiiH program covers all types of construction,, the U. S. agency said. The slate's program probably ^•will nol get underway before "spring, and men, the Public Roads Administration said, "availabilily of workers will determine the speed." The agency feels thai equipment will be available in sufficient quantity by the time Ihc various slulcs are ready lo move into highgear construction. Rights-of-way still must be obtained on much of the projected program. Of the initial federal allotment of $7,515,591 for Arkansas, $3,854,L 270 is set aside for regular federal- aid (U S. numbered) highways, S3 103,100 for secondary of feeder roads and $558,221 for urban highways.

SHACKFORD London, Jan. 7 —(UP)—American delegates to Ihc Uniled Nations assembly indicated today that discussion of an atomic energy commission would nwnil Ihe arrival of Secretory of State James I' 1 . Byrnes whose agreement al Moscow regarding the commission lacked full support ot the delegation. Responsible sources raised the possibility Unit opponents of Ihc atomic agreement at Ihc reccnl Moscow conference mighl force a revision in order to safeguard the sccrcl of the atom bomb. Byrnes who will fly to London later (his week to join his fellow delegates here for the opening of Ihe UNO assembly had been sent the opinion of some member of the U. S. dclogalion that the Moscow resolulion should be reviewed. Opponcnls of Ihc resolulion also wanted stronger guarantees of reciprocity in exchange for scientific information. Some sources suggested lhal Ihe opposilion was strong enough that congressional approval of the resolution would be jeopardized unless the 'objections were met. American delegates were understood to have discussed the resolution in dclail while Ihey were crossing Ih Atlantic.on the Queen Elizabeth. The views of Ihe opponents were believed to be before the del- cgalion in written form. Sen. Arthur H. Vandcnbcrg, R.

M. Mololov of Russia. He appeared lo be confronted with the embarrassing possibility lhal his own delegates to London would compel him lo /seek amendments to the resolulion. Vandcnbcrg had said aflcr a talk with Prcsidcnl Truman lhal he was salisficd with informal assurances he received from the prcsidcnl that no U.

The main weiglil of crilicism aimed at Iho resolulion was understood lo focus on ils purported vn'gtlehessrof phrasing. ' Objections were understood to have been submitted to the delegation thai the wording mighl permit disclosure of vital alomic sccrols, and could be used to oblige the United Stales lo transfer to Ihe Uniled Nations all authority to deal with atomic energy. The delegation's first problems will relate to slates for cnndidalcs for assembly president, secretary general and non-permanent members ot Ihc security council.

USS Arkansas May Be Used in Bomb Test By VIRGINIA VAN DER VEER Washington, Jan. 7 — (/I 1 )— Agal- lanl, old dowager of Ihe flccl ,thc 33-year-old "U.S.S. Arkansas," may make a dramatic exit in service of her country. For Ihc veteran balllewagon of two world wars and many seas, the final curtain may come with an aloin bomb across her bow. The possibility thai Ihe fighting "Arky," reprieved from the scrap heap by the Second World War, mighl be offered in sacrifice lo science is being sludied by the navy. The navy announced that Secretary Forrestal has been asked lo consider Ihe fleet's oldest battleship for this new and last role. Dost ruction by her country's mightiest weapon would climax a c-munr which earned for Ihc doughly oldtimer such lilies as "Uevil Ship," from German gun ncrs on Iho French coasl, and "Lucky Arky," for her undamaged record through two wars. Some of the 1800 local members of her crew feel thai the Arky herself, if she could choose, would prefer to bow out in the ultra modern manner and the cause of scientific progress. After all, Ihey figure, the Arky doesn't seem fated for a scrap pile. First ordered to decommission in 1941, she was awaiting final orders when December 7 dawned. Overhauled after yeoman serv ice in the invasions of Normandy and southern France, she steamed for the Pacific to turn her guns on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. With war's end, the Arky was inviled to be a Navy Day honor guest at Seattle, Wash., then or acred to make a last voyage through the Panama canal lo Bos Ion for decommissioning. Then came a new call to duly. Thousands of Pacific fighling men were wailing rides home from Pearl Harbor. The navy turned the Arky's course westward again and gave her a peacetime mission. She is edging toward the 150,000 mile mark in mileage traveled since her retirement orders first came four years ago. Erection of new churches and refurbishing the battle scarred one of Europe would cost an estimated one and one hnlf billion dollars.

George C. Marshall met today with government and Communist peace negotiations and at the end of the lirst historic session declared that "we have made progress." President Truman's special envoy, making his first comment Bince he stepped, iptq- the .midst of the Chinese negotiations after the rivals agreed lo melhods leading to a Iruce, said the conferences would be resumed tomorrow. Marshall rnet for aboul three hours with Gen. Chou En-Lai, head of the delegation Ihe Communists sent here to lalk peace, and Gen. Chang Chun, representing the Chinese government. All three emerged smiling from the conference. Both Chang and Chou agreed with Marshall that progress had been made. Earlier Chou had predicted lhal a Iruce hailing Ihe spoiled fighting in China's civil turmoil made effective before would be Thursday, when China's All-Party conference opens its peace meeting de-signed 10 skirl the peril of civil war and work oul a program of peace and unity . It was reported reliably that the "cease fire" order would be given when the committee of three concludes its work, possibly tomorrow. It also was understood lhal no polilical problems were touched upon at today's session, which was devoted entirely lo a discussion of details for the truce and the restoration of China's paralyzed communications. It was generally conceded that attempts to solve the current crisis aroused far grealer hope of settlement than has existed before. After the conference, Marshall told reporters it would be "highly undesirable" to disclose the character of Ihe lalks now, but promised that..a full statement would be made then Ihey are finished. To this Chou added: "it's been a good morning." Communist and government leaders reportedly were sludying Ihe first drafl of cease-fire orders loday. As soon as the two parties agree on wording ,the orders will be submilled for General Marshall's approval, reported Dr. Lo Lung-Chi, a spokesman for China's Democratic league. Lo said the proposed Iruce would nol apply lo Manchuria, because 11 was nol regarded as a zone of hoslilities. Observers here said this mighl indicale that the Chinese Communists were reconciled to control of Manchuria by Chiang Kai-Shek's national government. Occupation of that industrially- rich area by Chiang's troops meanwhile proceeded without reported opposition.
