, , Four HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS ^American GIs Show Little r Enthusiasm for the Folies Bergeres in French Capital A; By DeWITT MacKENZIE • AP World Traveler - 'Paris, Jan. 7 — The French cap- Ital's famous girl-show, the Folies kBcrgeres, has, of course, always , been a revealing affair, but in , these post-war days one finds it making disclosures in a far larger » sense than is implied in our little j 'One shouldn't expect, for in- i ( Stance, to be able to gauge the F^ State of the nation from a visit to ,the Folies, or yet to make interest|,} ing psychological observations re- «sarding the genus Yankee-GI. Still [Xthat has been the experience of | k Madame Mack and myself on re- {."newing acquaintance after some r, years with this internationally known , variety show. * ,We sat on the center aisle and p.tve rows back. ,We noted that a [.large, percentage of the crowd was [^American officers and GI's. I.! Our first discovery had to do |*\vith the state of the nation, and it |*was indeed startlina. The great ptheater was unheateH although it |*vtes sub-freezing. Most spectators Lkept their overcoats on, as did | » many of the orchestra, and they Lstill were cold. The real sufferers, |»however, were the ladies of the f » cast, who were in an unhappy state * of deshabille for such a night. G* strings' aren't great protection .gainst wintry blasts, and some r,i»irls were blue with cold.

However, to return to the Folies Sergeres .Mrs. Mack and I were nuch 'interested in getting the re- ction of the GI's to this G-string ymphony, which is considerably nore liberal than the shows to vhich the boys are accustomed at ome. The present Folies, by the ;ay, are no more free-and-easy nan were those which I saw of- ered a generation ago during the ast war to the dads of the present Jf's. But the Folies always were aughty. That's the naked truth. It must be admitted that some ery handsome figures drifted icross the stage. Still (and we bought this would be of particular merest to the-girls back home) tie GI's showed little or no en- husiasm. They applauded a sub strong-man act, some very unny turns by a comedian and ther bits — but had small com- nendation for the back-to-nature cenes. The boys just sat there, ihewing gum and viewing the dis- ilay with an impartial and un- imotional attitude. When the show was about half hrough I asked a sergeant what le thought of it. H e considered my question for a minute and then re- Jlied cynically: "I was trying to figure that out myself." And what does all this mean? Well, if you are going to suggest hat the boys are blase, you will be wrong. Healthy minded lads don't get blase. I think it means .hat a little of this sort of enter- :ainment goes a long way with the average American. The membership of the Academie Francaise is limited to 40.

New York, Jan. 7 — Back there, a few days ago, you know, the Inst of the year, Mrs. George Spelvin, American, well, she got to figuring (hat her old man was a not- half-riiUen kind of old plug, after nil, because he worked hard and didn't go in for much sky-larking ahd they couldn't stand the belt for New Year's Eve at one of those traps where the rich trash do their falling down, so by hell, in that sentimental mood, she decided to buy n good fat slab of toddy at the store and do a little sitting up at home and work up a mild reek with papa. Then at midnight they would throw open the windows and listen to the chimes and the horns and the braying of the crowd and that .would attend to that, all for the price of one quart of nice, wholesome and nutritious grog and no cover charge or lips and so, to face another year, hand-in-hand, together down life's pathway and all like that. So minded, Mrs. Spelvin went down to the corner and asked the guy for one tube of his very best corn-squeezing and, pointing to a row of old rumhound, price $5.50, said "one.-twclfth of a dozen of that, if you would be so kind." So Mrs .S. was floored for a count of nine when the guy slapped both hands on the counter, gave her a glare and demanded, "How much dough does your old man make, how much have you got in cash, bonds and other investments, what mortgage do you carry on your love-bower, at how much per cent, and does he figure to get a raise within the next twelve months?" Coming up slowly and shaken but pretty good and damn sore, Mama S. went to her right until until she could" regain her speech and then, with a terrific rally, hollered: "Why you fresh tramp, what for kind of asking is that and what is the matter with you, anyway, because I come in to buy me some provisions for a strictly law-abid- ign, respectable family bust and 15 Unbeaten Major Teams in Basketball By JOE REICHLER Nw York, Jan. 7 — (/P)- Alrcady rimmed down to 15 teams, the fast-dwindling ranks of major unbeaten college basketball teams appear facing another sharp pruning as the Cagers enter one of the busiest weeks of the campaign. With most of the cross-country tours and. interscqUonal tilts completed, the hoop brigade gets down to the more serious business of con- tcrcnce play . Among- those still unbeaten and rated close to the lop of the heap are Wyoming (Q-0), Indiana (8-0), Iowa, Notre Dame and West Virginia (7-0), Cornell and Tulane (G-0) and Yale (5-0). Wyoming, currently ranked the number one team following a successful tour of the cast during whit'h the Cowboys defeated St. Joseph's of Philadelphia, Long Island University and Washington of St. Louis, starts its bid for the Rocky Mountain title with a name against Utah, 1943-M4 National champions, Saturday The cowboys met Valparaiso tomorrow. Either Indiana or Iowa is certain to fall ranks this from week the unbeaten as they are matched in a big ten battle Saturday. The Hoosicrs, with two conference victories already 'under their belts, m,et Mincsota tomorrow. The defending Champion Hawkcyes also arc active tomorrow, meeting Wisconsin. Northwestern, another unbeaten big ten quintet, goes after its sixth and seventh straight in successive meetings with Purdue tomorrow and Michigan Saturday. All are loop tilts. Cornell, rated at the top in the cast and currently pacing the eastern intercollegiate league with three wins and no losses, may encounter trouble with Rochester Tuesday and Princeton Saturday. The Big Red swamped Columbia Saturday, G6-43, for its latest triumph. Notre Dame had a narrow escape Saturday but managed to slay up with the elilc by gaining a lusl second 43-42 victory over DC Paul on a long set shol by Billy Hassell .Notre Dame oposes powerful Great Lakes Friday. West SPORTS ROUNDUP New York, Jan. 7 — (/P)—When the Association of College Baseball Coaches gels together tomorrow In St. Louis," the boys likely will find some good material for yelping in the fact that the Reds recently signed Ted Kluszcwski out of Indiana U. while he still had a couple of years of baseball and football eligibility . . . But the Cincinnati club isn't anticipating any trouble with I. U., with which it has very friendly relations . . . Ted was marred recently and was determined to play pro ball, one Rcdleg official explains, "and Indiana probably would prefer to have him go with us than any of the other clubs that were after him" . . . The lowdown on that puzzling Ohio Stntccoaching switch, as related by miriwcstcrners, is that the "invasion" of Ohio by out-of-state coaches was primiarly responsible. . . .Seems that Carroll- Widdocs isn't the persuasive type needed to keep the boys at home while Paul Bixler operates more in the Paul Brown manner.

Baylor, beaten only once in 11 non-conference starts, is regarded generally as the campaign's darkhorse. In two practice games last week, Baylor whiped the Port Arthur Junior Chamber of Commerce 6535 and Northwestern State of Louisiana, 67-49. Gangling George Kok, sensational sophomore center who meshed 43 points in the series despite an injury which kept him under wraps in the opener, propelled Lambert's Red and White clan in its conquests at Fayetteville. Melvin McGaha, Bill Flynt, Ken Kearns and Frank Schumchyk also turned in creditable performances to help blast a conference scor- Rock club for a little il of yours, you crummy bootlegger, how much scratch we got in kick, how much we make and the mortgage and whether my plumed knight figures lo get a raise next year because that is one of your business, you cheap, ignorant—" "Listen to me, you over-bearing Fascist," the guy yelled back, and by now quite a crowd was gathering and a cop had come in and was stretching an ear to see whether the situation called for steps, "listen to me, because you arc .list so smug and reactionary, with your riches, and your tradition of power, that you don't seem to realize that us poor people have ;ot a right to charge according to low much you can afford to pay and if you are filthy rich I am right here to tell you I am entilled to a fair share of the dough." The cop moved up to the counter now and, turning to Mrs. Spelvin, said, "Lady, I think you ought to •ealize that this is just fact-finding and, while 1 don't have the legal power to make you tell what the ;uy asks, I think he sounds pretty •easonable because, if you can afford to pay $10.80 for this merchandise, then, after all, why should the poor mugg let it got for >5.50? He only wants to see your looks to prove how much you can pay and then,' if the facts show you can't stand a higher tap well—" "No," Mrs. Spelvin shrieked the way she sometimes does when she s really sore, "neither for you nor President Truman nor anybody else and it is none of your business either so please be away and don't 'nterfere and, moreover, I suppose f I am absolutely busted and my old man is out o£ a job, then, according to you bums, why, 'i£ it's ability lo pay that counts, why all i got to do is prove we can't pay anything and this meat-head here will give me a quart for nothing.

Starting Today in the HOPE STAR S* ' I m It -® Voice of Opinion • By James Thrashei • Hlrohlto De-Delfled Being n god on earth always Impressed us as nice work If you could get it. The pay wns good, ond so was the board and lodging. The hours were easy. And there practically no responsibility. But it appears now that this WO*s just another otie of those pastimes and professions thai seem a lut better from the outside , vtlum they really are. Hirohito, - among ihu Inst c,f (he earthly div nuics, has walked out on what looked like one of the best jobs in the world. He has turned in his halo and announced that, from now on, he's just one of the boys. Not that Hlrohlto didn't have a good thing there at one lime. He was accountable only to his divine ancestors, who never talked back, or wrote misty letters, or threatened to run a younger and more personable nephew against him in the next election. ).Hirohito took the credit while other people did the work. And he kept his people reasonably happy by perpetuating the fiction that they were bettor than anybody else in the world. This fiction was something thai had been dreamed up by Hlro- hito's remote grandpas and preserved in the family fur centuries. But it appears that the older members of the divine family were a little smarter than the last of Ihe Sun Goddess line. -,.y The elder god-emperors took no chances. They just sen led off their islands from any contact with the; outside world. And so, never seeing anybody but each other, the Japs found it easy to believe that they were the greatest guys in the world. They could flex their muscles and shadow box with the comfortable assurance that nobody would come around to challenge their boast that they could lick anybody on the planet. An American named Perry upset things, some 90 years ago, by '>.)busting in on the Japanese island.'; uninvited, showing a cannon under the divine and imperial nose, and telling the boys to open no and stay open. This called for a change in strategy. But llirohito's grandpas were equal to the occasion. Every 30 or 40 years they'd sign their boys up for a fight with some over-fed, out-of-condition opponent—and usually begin the fight with a stab in the back, just by way of making sure. That worked for a while. But *" then some of the boys in the back throne-room 1401 to blowing off so hard about this .superiority business that llirohito got loo big for his celestial "Breeches. He started himself a real lough war with some real tough guys. Now, n god on earth is expected to rear back and pass a miracle occasionally when things start looking bad. But llirohito didn't even have a simple card trick in his repertory. And unlike the old Teutonic and Greek deities, he . couldn't light out from earth for '•./'• /alhalla or Olympus when the going got rough. He just had to stick it out with his superior subjects and walch them ti kc a terrific pasting. So today the whole business of being an carlhly divinlly is washed up. Another American named MacArthur has finished the job that Commodore Perry started — but good. Wo don't wonder, then, that Hirohito has up and cle-deificrl himself.

Sharing Atom Upto America, Byrnes Says By GRAHAM HOVEY Washington, Jan. 8 — (/I 1 )— Secretary of Stale Byrnes phmiu-d to i, give 'American UNO delegates in ' London today the same assurances on atomic energy safeguards that he left with the nation on his departure. Byrnes and his parly arrived in London at midaflcrnoon in President Truman's giant plane, "The Sacred Cow." Before leaving . Washington last night, the secretary told reporters he would call a meeting of the U. S. delegation to the United Nations assembly "as soon as I get there." Byrnes devoted all of ycslerday *<*to trying to convince Americans— at home and abroad—that: 1. The projected United Nations atomic energy commission would liavc no power to demand scientific information which the United States did not furnish voluntarily. 2. This country could use its veto power to block any a Item pi by the UNO security council to gain such information. 3. If the council voted — with U. S. concurrence — to promote exchange of such information, the . final decision on the extent of ^American participation would be mads by Congress. Senator Vandenbcrg (R-Mich), a member of the American delegation in London, has disclosed thai lie believes the atomic commission proposal should be rewritten to safeguard more specifically America's knowledge of how to produce tho atom bomb. Byrnes probably will fight any attempt to change (he wording of the plan, since it was a three-nation idea conceived at the Moscow k foreign ministers' conference and not an exclusive U. S. product. In a move designed to provide further assurances that American interests will be protocled once the UNO commission begins functioning. Byrnes yesterday appointed a five-man committee to study "controls and safeguards" for atomic energy and the industrial processes which produce it. The announcement addec. thai the committee would he "requested" cluriiiE! its study to "keep in touch with the appropriate con- Agressional committees." ' Undersecretary of Stale Dean Acheson will be chairman of the group The three scientists who directed production of the atom bomb — Dr. Vannevar Bush, Dr. James B. Conanl, and Maj. Gen. Leslie R. Groves - will be members, along with John J. McCloy, former assistant secretary of war. Results of the committee s study will be available to persons chosen as U S. representatives on the UNO 'atomic commission. British Doubt Russia's New Atomic Bomb London, Jan ,B (/I 1 ).— Sources close to Iho British government today expressed skepticism of re- pnrls thiit Russia had developed a new atom bomb which makes the western powers' weapon "obsolete'.' The report was made last niylit by Dr. Raphcal E. G. Armattoc, director of Lcimcshic Research Center for Anthropology and Human Biology at Londonderry, northern Ireland. Armaloc declined to disclose the source of his infor- mntion aside from saying that members of the center's staff were affiliated with Russian scientific socieilies. Usually well informed British sources said they had not seen Dr. Arrniilloc's statement, made in an interview, but when informed of its contents said they doubted it very much. If the Russians have developed an atom bomb, they said, they thought "only « small circle of people inside Russia would know about it." They added they did not understand how Armatloc would know. In addition, they said, they were unable to understand how Dr. Ar- mattoc would have enough knowledge of the western powers' atom bomb to know whether the purported Russian weapon renders it obsolete. They said they were sure he did not know — at least "we certainly hope he doesn't know" — that much about Anglo-American military secrets. In Londonderry last night, Dr. Armattoe said "the Russian atom bomb" already had been tested and was found to have a horizontal pulverization range of 53 miles and a vertical lift of (i.2 miles. "The temperature generated was in the neighborhood -of several million degrees centigrade," Dr. Ar- maltoe asserted, adding that the purported bomb could be manufactured on a "mass production scale." (In Washington, atomic bomb experts recalled that considerable testimony was presented before the senate atomic energy committee that it would be several years before any other nation could produce an atom bomb, even with the knowledge possessed in this country, but they declined any direct comment on the Londonderry report.) "The destructive character of the Anglo-American b o m b depends upon a determined si/.c of uranium," Dr. Armattoe continued. "The Russian bomb, however, develops ils force by <i spin or angular motion, making it more applicable for engineering work." Armattoe asserted the Russian scientists, if they had not already done so, "probably" would soon bo able to increase or diminish the Continued on Page Two Detroit, Jan. 8 —(/I')— The CIO United Automobile Workers today held a unique and unprecedented bonus wage contract with Kaiser- Frax.cr Corp., newcomers to the aulo industry, which they will offer UK a model for settling disputes with the industry's long-established firms. Union leaders hailed the con- late last night, as "unquestionably tract, announced by both sides late last night, as "iinquestionalby the best ever reached with an automotive company." In a whirlwind finish to a highly-) secret, seven-hour negotiating session, Henry J. Kaiser, chairman, and Joseph W. Frazer, prcKident, announced at «\ press conference that the new firm would: 1. Base wage scales on prevailing rates at the Ford Motor Co. Rouge plant, said to be the highest in the industry. 2. Meet any increases granted by General Motors as a result of the current GM strike. 3. Set up a pool by laying aside $5 for each Kaiser, the company's low-priced car, and Frazer, its medium-priced car, produced during the year at the big Willow Run bomber nlant, leased Irom the government "for aulo production. The pool would be divided among Kai- scr-Frazer production workers at the end of each year. The company has estimated ils production rate will reach 300,000 cars annually, so the pool will be about $1,500,000. To prevent wildcat strikes it \yas stipulated that any worker participating in a work stoppage not authorized by the UAW-C1O international executive board would lose bonus benruis for the period of participation. The contract also provides for a union shop, checkoff of clues and, in the opinion of both company and union, the "most favorable" veterans' clause ever drawn up. R. J. Thomas, IJAW-CIO president who postponed a flight to Washington to take part in the proceedings, described the negotiations as "one oC the bright lights in labor-management relations." After the press conference, at which he sat on a sofa between Frazer and Kaiser, Thomas left by plane for the capital to report to CIO President Philip Murray- and heads of other CIO unions.

PRICE 5c COPY Child's Body ^m • A ^TJ- : *'' J: Found in Sewer Near Her Home 'Fat-Catting' is Stirring £7 w/ Widespread Animosity Among EM and Junior Officers By HAL BOYLE Manila, Jan .8 •— (/I 1 )— "Fat-cat- ling" by senior officers is stirring widespread animosity among enlisted men and junior officers in the American forces overseas. "Fat-calling" is a term applied in the lower ranks to higher leaders who try lo guide Ihcir personal military careers back inlo Ihc easy pro-war clays of Colonel Blimp by padding Ihcrrusclves with special privileges and comforts. This practice is doubtless common enough in peacetime, when social grace is sometimes more important than courage and char- aclcr in winning promolion. At any rale, il is pretty well accepted in professional army circles, oven by enlisted men. After all, in peacetime even sergeants are provided with good government quarters and have a pretty nice deal. In wartime, however, sergeants sleep wilh privates in foxholes or tents, and many a junior officer finds his billet a I the front is a cold hole in the ground. Waiting now to return to civilian life, many of these junior officers and enlisted men resent the speed with which high-ranking officers have surrounded themselves with expensive luxuries. This strikes particularly sour notes with men whose families back home arc living on a pinch-penny level and who feel Ihcmsclvcs to be victims of the langled demobilization program. These arc some things to which the men especially object: Quality items for post-exchanges, such as good cigars, watches, cig- arclte lighlers and all but the cheaper Fountain pens have an uncanny habit of flowing in the general direction of colonels and upward. Privates may have enough money lo buy them, but quantities arc limited, so the privates don't get the opportunity very often. One young officer assured me that his gold-braided commander was living in a sumptuous home staffed by 32 Filipino" houseboys. "We have gotten over being in- t about it," he said. "Now idignant we just try lo figure out what in Ihc hell has to bo done that requires 32 houseboys. After all, the place was redecorated and painted before the guy moved in." Thai is only one of scvcr:>l such cases cited in which wearers of stars and gold lace are living on government accommodations at a scale beyond their private means and which seem out oC place in this war-damaged cily . Another young officer complained of a lieutenant colonel who, he said, managed to wangle Iwo private homes for his own use on Ihe claim that he had to have space "lo entertain distinguished visitors" "His distinguished visitors have consisted of Red Cross and U.S.O. girls," the young officer said. This is in a cily where housing is »t a high premium. Another officer, in the navy, said men in his unit were scandalized when an impatient captain sent an 80-foot launch on a tour of the harbor in search of the ship which was doing his laundry for him. "It cost the taxpayers better than a hundred bucks just so that bird could wear a clean shirt," said the young officer Another incident which caused comment was the assignment of I some 1,000 Japanese war prison-' ers lo clean up a golf course for higher-ups Many persons expressed the opinion that the Japanese could be better employed repairing damaged Philippine buildings or at least removing the debris of war The talk got stronger when it was decided thai a nine-hole course was nol enough, so an engineering ballalion was forced to move off the other half of the grounds and into what a medical officer described as "a buffalo wallow'. 1 One private, summing VIP G. I. feelings, declared, "the regulars would do well to hold off putting on the dog until they gel us civilians out of uniform.

It was not known how many of the protestants were eligible f9r discharge. Harbor authorities said only 3,000 are eligible to sail this month but that 10 transports with a capacity of 40,000 to 50,000 arc due. A U. S. Senate sub-committee investigating post-war bases and surpluses is expected here Saturday,, and General MacArthur's press headquarters in Tokyo said that Secretary Patterson plans to visit Manila "tho middle of next week." LI. Gen. W. D. Slyer, commanding army forces in the western Pacific, had told representatives oC protesting G. l.'s that Patterson had decided to by-pass Manila on his world tour. But a spokesman at MacArthur's headquarters explained that "instead of taking Manila off his schedule, Secretary Patterson put it on, after he arrived in Tokyo. He did not plan to go to Manila, at the time he left the United States." The secretary is scheduled lo go to Korea Saturday or Sunday, then proceed to Shanghai before" flying lo Manila. Monday night's mass meeting here of 12,00(1 enlisted men— held over the objections of General Slyer — proved orderly, and military police said the remainder of Ihc night was quiet. The meeting approved a formal resolution demanding a congressional investigation of the demobilization slowdown. General Styer's written explanation that the new program would spread over six months the number of men previously scheduled to go home in three was roundly booed. From Guam, the Navy News reported lfi.000 men attended two outspoken protest sessions there, and the Stars and Stripes, army newspaper, said cnlislcd men all over the Pacific "arc confused and disheartened."

Flood Threats in 4 Southern States Today ,*'., ,-.. . ,...,.,:„,"•%; By The Associated Press Flood threats in four southern stales today followed weekend storms.which in the South 21 and Southwest killed at least 38 persons, left another missing, injured .'ill and destroyed or damaged more than 700 homes. Tennessee's Rhea county was reported flood stricken and its largest town, Dayton, completely surrounded by water. The Southeastern area of the American Red Cross said 100 families already were homeless there and another 100 threatened by the rain-swollen Richland creek, which 'enters the Tenncsse river al Daylon. Forly-one persons were marooned on a 100 square yard hilltop at old Jefferson, in middle Tennessee. Police Chief Raymond Cannon of Madison said the Stones river was rising at the rale of two feel an hour and that he hoped to rea the families by boat today. Near LaFaycltc, Tcnn., Joseph Justice, 74, was missing after overflowing Goose crook poured into his home in the Hillsdale community. Two main Alabama highways were blocked by high water—U.S. HI south nf Montgomery a"<l bc- Iwen Aiiniston and Tallaclcga. Two small ferries in Ihe slate also ceased operalions because of high water. The town of Canton, Ga., suffered from the rising Etowali river, which slopped railroad and highway transport and caused two cotton mills and a marble mill to shut down. The Chatlahooche's overflowing also closed the highway between Jasper and Gainesville. No floods were reported in Mississippi, which wilh Arkansas and Texas fell the brunt of the weekend storm damage, but W .R. Benson of the Wcalhcr Burc:»u at. Meridian, Miss., said continued rains during Ihc next few days might brill)! flood stages to both the Pearl and the Pascagoula rivers. _ ., Q_ Extra Funds for Primaries Not Provided Liltle Rock, Jan. 8 — (/I 1 )— Failure of about halt of Arkansas' 75 counties to provide appropriations for two extra primaries this year lofl Ihc Democratic State Central Committee in doubt today as to what stop will have to be taken next. The 1945 legislature ordered four primaries instead of the customary two in order to separate federal and state elections and permit Negro voters to be challenged al the polls it they attempted "to participate in the nomination of state of- licers . The new law provided that counties were to bear the extra cost but since half of them refused to allot the necessary funds a financing plan will have to be found if the extra primaries are to bu held.

Sellcmcnt of the Chinese civil war appeared near on the basis of statements issued after a meeting of Nationalist and Communist delegates, with Marshall sitting in as concilliator. Gen. Chou En-Lai, leader of the Chinese Communist delegation, issued a post-conference statement saying: "A major portion of our problems were settled, and certain details were discussed and disposed of'.' Another spokesman said the main poinls of contention between tho Communists and Nationalists were ironed out in the conference of three hours and 40 minutes, the longest in the series of peace meet igs and the second today. Marshall had a dinner engagement with Soviet Ambassador Apollon Petrov at 7:30 p. m., but he stayed at the peace conference until 8:10. He was similing broadly when he emerged with the delegates. The conference will be resumed tomorrow. Chou indicaled that a cease fire order might be expected at any time in line with the agreement on the main points. The agreement apparently provided for issuing the order, which was delayed temporarily. Other major points of the conference had revolved around the restoration of Chinese communications and Ihc acceplance of surrender and repatriation of Japanese in China. Gen. Chang Chun, Nationalist representative, had indicated that progress was being made at the conference, but he did not issue a statement immediately. Native General Honored Today in Little Rock Little Rock, Jan. 8 —(/P)— Litlle Ilock loday honored a visiting native son — Gen .Brehon Somervell, retiring commander of the army service forces. With Mrs. Somervell, also a native Arkansan, and Col. Edward Martin, his aide, General Somervell arrived here by airplane from Washington late yesterday, but no public appearance was scheduled until today. General Somervell will ride in a parade this afternoon and then go to Governor Ben Laney's office in tho Stale Capitol for a reception. Tonight he will speak at the annual greater Little Rock Chamber of Commerce banquet. Boyhood friends of the general, whose birthplace here is not far from that of General MacArlhur, planned a luncheon for him at noon. General Somervell said he and Mrs. Somervell planned to visit Fordyce, Ark., her former home, after leaving here, and then go 1c Florida for a vacation. He said he had not made plans beyond his present leave. UNKNOWING PROTECTION For years, American fruit growers protected their orchards from frost without knowing how they did it.

Poh'ce still were searching for Suzanne's chubby arms, the only portions of her body which had not been found. The child apparently had never been taken from the neighborhood after she was lifted from .her bed early yesterday, carried through a window and down a seven-run ladder. The ladder, with one rung missing, was found nearby. Police searched darkened coiners of apartment house basements in the neighborhood for tell-tale bloodstains that might show where the body was dismembered.

Degnan, 39, whc discovered his daughter missing and found a ransome note demand ing $20,000, is a Chicago OPA of ficial. Emerging from the Degnan home, Kelly issued this statement "I want to give assurance to the mothers of Chicago that police arc carefully guarding all districts to prevent a recurrence of such c crime against Chicago's children "It was a terrible thing and mus have been done by a maniac." There were strong indications that the pretty first grade studen may have been killed accidently then dismembered and hidden ii an effort to conceal the crime.

A spokesman for the CIO American communications Association, which called the strike, told reporters at tne company's Hudson titreet headquarters — hub of the Western Union network — that the strike time was advanced because tne company was "shipping in four carloads of strike breakers." A company spokesman denied that Western Union was bringing in strike breakers, saying "tnere was nothing to" such reports. Louis Siebenberg, vice chairman of Local 40, one of eight locals of tne CIO American Communications Association which are involved in a wage dispute with the company, said at 9:30 a. m. that the strike was "100 per cent efiective with' 7,000 employes out."

Many servicemen in the station, unable to send telegraph sages, formed lines belore phone booths. At La Guardia field the United Airlines, dependent upon Western Union equipment and maintenance for its teletype communications, said it had been assured by the union that its service would be continued. Some news circuits of the Associated Press leased from Western Union went out of operation. At one branch office handling overseas cables the operators walked off the job. They said they had been summoned to attend a union meeting. Previously, a company spokesman had said that a strike ot Western Union employes would halt all but the most viatal "life or death" messages in and out of New York City. Slow Down Demobilization Attributed to "Critical Need of Men Overseas', Says Truman Washington, Jan. 8 —(IP)— President Truman loday attributed the slow-down in the army's rate of demobilization to "the critical need for troops overseas." The nresident declared in a statement he was convinced that both the army and the navy are demobilizing "with commendable efficiency and with justice to all concerned." Taking cognizance of complaints in congress about delays in, the return of troops and of demonstrations among members of the armed forces themselves, the president asserted: "The armed forces have been reduced as fast as possible. For many reasons il is impossible for every member of the armed forces lo be discharged promptly." He mentioned both - the "enormous size" of the lask involved and tho fad that the United States "must assume its full share of responsibility for keeping the peace and destroying the war-making potential of the hostile nations that were bent on keeping the world in a slate of warfare."
