Jan. l~i—-f<— Cotton state ser.tao;.;. r.r.gry at OPA's notice of proposed m'ice ceilings on the raw i'ib'jr. sa;il today this may : mean the end o:' the w.iole Office of Price Administration. OPA is due to expire- June 30 — unless Congress votes its continuance. "I told thorn!" Senator Johnston (D-SC) related to reporters, -'that I doubt very much that OPA will be in existence after June 30 if they put a price ceiling on cotton." From deep south Louisiana, Senator Ellendi-'r (D-Lai expressed a similar view, saying: "Well, OPA expires June :)0. The cotton crop in Louisiana is not •gathered until August, so it doesn't •matter very much what they say." OPA's announcement last night said ihe agency's advance notice simply puts it in a position to impose the controls if it finds them necessary. The announcement added that "it may not be actually necessar--- to out the ceilings into effect." " At Scott, Miss., Oscar Johnston, .president of the National Cotton Council, described the OPA action as a "precautionary measure not likely to be carried into operation." He termed cotton ceilings "unworkable and unenforceable." Southern senators blame present high, clothing orices on manufacturers and distributors, rather than on the cost of raw materials. Senator McCIeilan (D-Ark) said: "In doing this they arc jeopardizing the extension of the t>r:ce con- Proposed extension would be added here pornco reception rooms The President of the United States is so busy these days that his executive olives have proved loo small.

Listeners Favor News Casts First .Washington, Jan. 15 — (/1'i—News programs hold first interest with runl radio listeners. The Agriculture Department's -Uireau ol Agricultural Economics reported this to the Federal Communications Commission today, along with other information on ural America's listening habits. Based on interviews with '!2!Ki men and women in rural areas, the study showed that: About 2 rural women in 10 listen to their radios less than :2 hours a day. At least two out of 10 listen (i hours or more, and another 2 listen from 4 to 0 hours. Men listen much less. Four in 10 listen less than 2 hours a day. Men in different sections of the eounUy listen to the radio about the same amount of time. Among women, regional differences are pronounced. Western women do the most, southern women the least listening. While news held first position in all regions, there was no such agreement on other kinds of programs. Religious programs arc special favorites of the south. They rank somewhat lower in popularity in the north central states and are chosen by only half as many poo- pic in the west as in the south. Western men rate sports events and scores higher than do the men m other parts of the country. :580GI Loans Have Been Approved it Was Announced Little Rock, Jan. 14 —(/!>)— Veterans Administration Director James A.

Arkansas Cripple Children Receive '" Check for $20,000 ' Little Rock, Jan. 17 —M'l— Mrs. hick C'arnes ol Camden today profited a $20,11(10 cheek to Governor La'nev for the Arkansas Crippled Child'rcii's Association of wliicn the fif the big four"meat packers were Hailed today as representatives ot the industry and the two striking union;; met in Washington at the rcquosl of President 1'ruman, an- xiou.s to avert a meat famine. Little hope was held for an early settlement of the widespread work stoppage, called to prcess demands for more pay to offset increased living costs and reduced peacetime earnings. As their union leaders responded to the presidential summons, nearly 300,000 AFL and CIO striking packing house workers were idle. Pickets maintained endless vigil around the nation's big meat plants and .stockyards. Strike captains termed thc walkout 100 per cent effective. Despite mass picket lines, there was virtually no disorder. Thc only reported violence was at Kansas City, Kan., where tension ran high outside a Swift Co. plant, employing members of an indepcnd out, non-Ktriking .union. A Swift Co. official said he had been forcibly kept by CIO strikers from entering the plant. Policewere detailed to protccl workers crossing picket lines. In other meat-producing centers, Chicago, Omaha, St. Louis, Denver and South St. Paul, shutdowns were completed without incident. The work stoppage which began at IH'.OI a. in. yesterday when night shift, workers left from their jobs, choked off the major share of meal supplies and threatened a nationwide meat famine within a few days. Although the strike was directed primarily against thc industry's big four — Swift, Armour, Wilson and Cuclahy — many smaller packers also were affected. The only plants permitted to operate were those which had signed interim wage agreements, and cles igncited by the two unions to fill army, navy, hospital and similar needs. Leaders of the Amalgamated Meat Cutters nnd Butcher Work- ncn (AFL) replied to Labor Secretary Lewis B. Schwcllenbacb'b request issued in behalf of Mr ;*to • -Rostponc . the . strike with an announcement that Uie'j •vould settle for a 15-cenl-an-houi increase and return to work Mon day morning. There was no indication, how ever, that the packing industry would offer such a pay boost. The CIO Packinghouse Worker Union stood by its original do mand for an immediate 17 1-2 cent hourly raise from thc big packers The CIO demand actually amount cd to 25 cents, with the remainde to be negotiated later. Only firm to accede to the CIO' wage demand was the Hormcl Co of Austin, Minn., which announced frankly that it would pay 17 1-2 cents more with the intention of seeking a price increase of at least mo-half cent a pound. Hormel em- ployes did not participate in the ationwidc walkout. Several smaller firms, notably the llygrado Food Products Corp., granted AFL and CIO workers a l, r >-cenl an hour increase. Thc contracts were left open, depending on the national wage picture. Highest offer from any of the big packers was that of Swift Company which said it would raise wages 10 cents an hour if granted compensatory price relief. By United Press Violence- broke out today in the nation's industrial crisis which has idled nearly a million workers and become a pressing problem for administration leaders and lawmakers in Washington. The most serious outbreak of thc picket lines cHine at Los Angeles where 100 police routed 1500 CIO Electrical Workers from thc gates of the U. S. Motors plant. The police used tear gas and clubs to break thc line so that 50 office workers could enter thc struck plant. A number of persons were injured in the fighting. There was violence also in the nationwide meal strike when police drove :i flying wedge through Packinghouse Workers picket lines t Kansas City, Kan. about 50 ncmbers of an independent union lasscd through thc CIO lines after >olicc opened a gap. Ten CIO pickets were arrested il thc Chicago stockyards for vio- alion of the stale picketing law Police charged the pickets pro vented non-strikers from reaching their jobs inside thc center of thc lalion's meal producing area. Al Washington, adminislralioi leaders hurriedly sought to scllk thc. slecl and meal wage disputes On the congressional scene, the House Labor Committee by a tic vote rejected a sin-prise .Rcmibli can motion to approve Presidcn Truman's labor bill without addi tional hearings. This bill would provide fact-finding boards Io study labor disputes and. give Ihe boards access Io company records. Thc deadlocked steel ncgoti- alions came to a showdown at Ihe White House.

Patterson at a press conference stated that nearly 3,500,000 men iad been demobilized the lasl throe months of 1945, and, had the rale been maintained, the American Army would have been only a memory. The secretary said thc United States has definite, worliS wide commitments and it is necessary to maintain an army establishment, and agreed entirely with General Eisenhower's demobilization policy.

John S. Bugas, Ford's industria relations director, said that th company produced 2,251 .cars and trucks yesterday, or more than 50 per cent of the production rate to which it had linked pay increase offers to the UAW. Bugas and Richard T. Leonard, UAW director for the Ford division, met for two hours and scheduled another talk for tomorrow, marking thc first time they had met on successive days. mg fore, committee counsel Sclh Richardson asked why Kimmel didn't ask Adm. Harold R. Stark, Ihcn chief ot naval operations, what was mcanl by Ihe "cxlra- ordinary term." "That is the trouble," Kimmel replied, "1 did not consider it an cxlraordoinary term." Because ot this, ho said he was ot influenced to order thc i'lcel op drop all training and to go on n all-out, security basis. Why didn't he ask Stark to help lim make thc decision when to drop training and put security measures into effect, Richardson asked.

II was a serious decision Io make, Kimmel said adding: "I never conceived that the Pa cific flccl was placed in Hawaii to defend Hawaii.'I thought il v. r as placed there' to conduct offensive operations if there was war with Japan." Kimmel told the commitlcc that ho had insufficient submarines to conduct a patrol in all directions from Ihe Hawaiian island of Oahu and foil that ho could not afford to place surface units on patrol in an arc to the north and west of Pearl Harbor. The Japanese struck from thc north on Dec. 7, 1941. "Wo had no unimportant surface units that wo could afford to sacrifice," he said.

By HAL BOYLE Manila, Jan. 17 —I/I')— During the battle of Tunisia a skinny lil- tle war correspondent weighing 112 pounds was called on the carpel jy a chunky American headquarters general in Algiers. You're little better than a traitor to your country," the general said. Thc small man's crime was that he had told fully the horrors of balllc and their emotional impact on tired, dirly men who carry Iho brunt of war. The brass hats who worry about such mailers thought this elder, middle-aged writer was hurtling American morale. They were wrong. He turned oul to be one of the army's bcsl morale builders. | Thai was Ernie Pylc, killed lalcr covering his fifth campaign in the field. It comes us something of a surprise now to read less than a year after Pylc went to his grave that Henry Louis Mencken, the oracle of Baltimore, beleivcs coruespond- ents were "a sorry lot" and did a poor job of covering World War II. (Kds note: Mencken said, however, lhat Pyle did a good job on the kind of task he set himself to Mencken, dean of American Intelligentsia, soundly observes thai il is~ "a primary duly of reporters to tell the truth until it becomes dangerous." But in concluding that ' there wasn't much of that," he is less than fair to a good number of able and conscientious newspapermen who lie buried in soldier cemeteries today because they never r|iiit trying to be a good reporters. Mencken says of war correspondents generally that they were cither typewriter statesmen turning out dope stuff drearily dreamed up or sentimental human interest scribblers turning out Maudlin stuff about the common soldier easy to get by tho censors." There were "typewriter statesmen" among the press corps. Some did write "Maudlin stuff" about the common soldier, al- Ihough Pyle was not one. Bui bolh al headquarters and at the front there were many hard- hilling newsmen who wore oul their hearts or risked their lives living up to Mencken's own dictum that "good reporting is an effort to gel the truth and toll il, no mailer who gels hurl." They fought capricious censorship throughout the war to give the American public as accurate and as complete a picture of what was going on as could be given .within thc limits of military security. They wrote boldly, critically and fully. Not since William Howard Russell of the London Times stirred thc world with his uncen- soi ed accounts of the Crimean bailies has there been more honest war coverage. A lot of it died undcr thc army's blue pencil, but there was enough got through and it is possible to answer Mencken's complaint that he doesn't "even know yel whal generals gol licked" in the Battle of the Bulge. Those of us who were there reported at the time that it was a German by the name of Karl Rudolf Gerd Von Rundstedt. By ROY J. FORREST Detroit, Jan. 17 —(UP)— Ford Motor Company and the CIO United Aulo workers resume nogo- lialions on a new contract today with agreement on the biggest stumbling block—wages—almost in sight. They were only two cents apart on wages with Ford offering 17.5 cci;ts an hour and the UAW "willing to accept" the 19.5 cents recommended by a presidential panel in the General Motors strike. R. J. Thomas, UAW international president, announced thai Ihe union was willing to compromise its DO per cent increase demand throughout, the aulo industry at the figure suggested by the panel in an effort to end the 58-day GM walkout. Agreement by Ford and thc UAW might provide the wedgo to break thc deadlock between General Motors and the Union. Ford and Hie UAW have been negotiating rapidly and peacefully on the wage issue during the past week. General Motors took notice of the Ford-UAW progress last night when GM President Charles 'K. Wilson sought Io clarify comparisons of GM wage scales with rates paid by Ford. A Ford statement said that its workers would provide an average hourly rale of $1.38—1-2 or 26—1-2 cents an hour above Ihe present CiM scale. This would still be seven cents above the GM rate if General Motors accepted tho 1'9.5 cents increase recommended by thc president's fact-finding board. Bomb Explodes in Argentina Exchange Buenos Aires, Jan. 17 —(/I 1 ) — A jomb exploded at the entrance of the slock exchange today two hours after the end of the 72-hour nationwide lockout by which business leaders protested a military government decree raising wages and granting year end bonuses. The exchange, meeting place ot the permanent assembly of commerce, industry and production which called thc lockout, opened the regular time. A heavy police detail which guarded thc building after thc 2 a. m. explosion was withdrawn. Tho blast shattered glass windows within a radius of a block. A policeman was slightly injured by flying glass, but he was the only casualty. The lockout started out midnight Sunday and ended at lasl midnight. To "Ihe bitter end" has a nautical origin. A shop's anchor chain, at the poinl where il was fastened to a vertical timber called the bill, was known as the bitter end. Thus, when the chain had been played out to "the biller end," there's nothing more lhat can be done. Washington, Jan. 17 —(/P)— Rear Adm. Husband E. Kimmel told congressional investigators today how Iho ,Japanese succeeded in launching aerial torpedoes in thc shallow waters of Pearl Harbor, a feat which navy experts in 1941 considered impossible. The former Pacific fleet commander, detailing his own account of the disastrous Japanese raid against thc naval base Dec. 7. 1941, said the Nipponese simply al- tached wooden fins to old- style torpedoes to do the job. "That was Ihe device thc Japanese used," Kimmel said, "— A device thai all the brains of our Navy Department who had been working on tho problem had boon unable to discover." Ho added dryly: "Tho solution Io any problem seems easy after you have thc answer." Previous testimony had disclosed that thc officials entrusted with the defense of thc naval base had fell relatively secure against aerial torpedo attacks since they knew of none that would operate successfully in the shallow water there. Thc average depth of thai anchorage is 80 feet, with 40-foot channels. Kimmel has testified that dam age against ships at thc base probably would have been slight, if the Japanese hadn't been able to use the torpedoes. Kimmel's third day before the Senate-House investigation group opened with committee counsel Solh W. Richardson about through with him on questions. Rep. Murphy (O-Pai said he was nol satisfied so far with the testimony on Kimmel's attitude toward a war warning message from Washington on Nov. 21, 1041, ten days before the Japanese attack. "Admiral Kimmel called this note watered down and said it didn't convey what il should in Ihe way of warning," Murphy told reporters. "Yet, after he received it. he took four war steps." Murphy said Kimmel (li »:ot .set for ;in expected mass submarine attack, (2i ordered all contacted .submarines to be bombed "against his orders from Washington," (3i .sent Adm. William F. Halsey Io ea with a task force "to shoot anything in sight" and (4) drew up a 24-hour war plan "which was brought up Io date on December li." "Perhaps the truth of the matter is they just didn't expect an air attack, period, period, period," said Murphy. Senator Lucas (13-1111 told reporters he thought the committee might, finish with Kimmel this week, and then turn to Lt. Gen. Waller C. Short, army commander in Hawaii at the time of the Pearl Harbor raid. Rep. Clark (D-Nc) speculated "this thing will wind up in a hurry after we hear Short." Undcr questioning yesterday, Kimmel stuck Io his contention thai he jusl didn't get from Washington information he said was abundant here that pointed to an attack on Pearl Harbor. In any event, the retired admiral asserted, "thc fleet was on Ihe alert." Balavia, Jan. 17 —(/!')— The Bril- ish announced loday clashes between Indonesian Nationalists and Eisenhower had told the meeting Tuesday thai army forces in thc Pacific theater would be cut to 375,000 by July 1, or 25,000 less, than MacArthur's cstimalc. Eisenhower said this represented an adjustmenl in air force .olals, adding that MacArthur's command covered all troops for Japan, Korea, thc Philippines, the Vlarianas, and Hawaii. The MacArthur message gave assurance that his command would follow Eisenhower's new order foi return of men with 45 points or 3( months service by April 30, and o: those with 4U points and 24 months by June 30. Loss of key men, MacAuthu added, already has hindered sucl operations as signal communica tions. In j outlining additional demobili zalion steps, "Eisenhower 'told th committee he had: ' Directed all theater command ight (8 p. m. CSX). Johnson's proposal for a postwar riny close to tnc 1U19 stzo ran ounter to Eisenhower's statement .Tuesday. Tnc general said then hat the War Department was tak- ng a big chance in lowering army strengtn to 1,500,OUO. However, tne subcommittee ol which Johnson is cnairman entertained hopes of selling tne chief of staff some different ideas both on .no army's size and demobifiza tion. One proposal of Johnson is tha previously exempt single men up to 45 and lots of 4-Fs be drafted to raise overseas replacements. He suggested that both selective Lesentalives >to an atternoon meet- ig in his office. The steel proposal Mr. Truman las in mind is his own secret, but here was some speculation it might involve his personal judgment on wnat would be a reasonable adjustment of the rival wage stands. Ross said government seizure 'has not entered into the discussions" through last night's talks, lie also reported that, of course, FairlesB and Murray could accept or reject "tne presidential proposal. Fairless nas offered to pay 15 cents more an hour but Murray is adamant on notning less tnan 19 1-2 cents for his 800,000 CIQ-steelwork- ers who are due to strike next Mori- day. The president already has urged General Motors Corporation to accept a fact-finding board's proposal of 19 1-2 cents more an hour ior 175,000 striking ClO-auts work- service and the army liberalize physical standards and accept thousands of men previously reject- because of minor physical disabilities, such as, flat feet.. ... ""Men with flat feet make good policemen," he commented jokingly. Reported in Kuriie islands British forces in the Socrabaja sec tor on the East Java coast yesterday had cost the British three killed and 21 wounded. By ALEX H. SINGLETON Washington, Jan. 17 —(/P)— Russia was reported today to be establishing herself firmly in the stralegic Kuriie island chain flanking the approaches to Siberia. It was from a rendezvous in those foggy Japanese islands that Admiral Yamamolo's flcel set out in late November, 1941, for ils al- lack on Pearl Harbor. Whether a peace settlement will decree (he permanent amputation of the Kurilcs from tho Japanese eiripire slill remains Io bo decided. Government officials here in . a position to know, said Russia already has sent in troops with "bag and baggage" and their families — apparently for a long stay. Those officials cannot be identified by name. Agreement upon Russian occupation of those islands, stretching like a giant scimitar across thc entrance to the sea of Okhotsk, was reached at the Potsdam conference. | Back in the last century there was some dispute between Russia and Japan as to the ownership of these barren islands, but in lf!7. r i Moscow officially recognized Japan's title to the Kurilcs. It appeared likely that Presidenl Truman had the Kurilcs in mind Tuesday when he told his new conference it was nol necessarily true that the United Slates wouk be alone in seeking independent control of former enemy-hold islands. Three courses apparently arc open for ultimate disposition of the Kuriles: 1. Settlement by a separate Russo-Japanese treaty. 2. Action at a peace parley in which all the Allies against Japan would participate. 3. N-clusion in a United Nations general settlement on thc future status of Pacific islands formerly held by Japan. In all three cases, it seemed certain lhat Russia will argue as great, a justification for sole tenancy of the Kuriles as thai of Ihe Uniiecl States for other Pacific is- and bases. 1946 Arkansas Car License Sales are Only 40 Per Cent Little Hock, Jan. 17 — (/1'j— Revenue Commissioner Otho A.

HIGHTOWER London, Jan. 17 — (ff) —United Nations control of the entire world irmament industry, including atomic bomb factories, was proposed to the UNO general assembly today by Foreign Minister Jan. G. Masaryk of Czechoslovakia. Jobs and problems piled up for he assembly, as it began the second week ot'its exsistence with a sobering speech by Foreign Minis- er Ernest Bevin of Great Brit- lin. Bevin said Britain was already icgotiating to place three of her live old mandates from the League of Nations under thc projected new Jnited Nations trusteeship system. Belgian officials said they would announce similar intentions 'or their two mandates, Ruanda and Urandi, in East Africa. Belgium's position is expected to be staled in a declaration to be read Friday or Saturday by M. F. Van Lagcnhove. Ruanda and Urandi were assigned to Belgium from German East Africa after the first world war. Masaryk told the assembly that, in order to safeguard humanity against the "latest scientific inventions," the world arms industry, "together with thc latest dev- a.sations inventions, should be put under the control of the United Nations." Delegates applauded Masaryk loudly several times, especially when he said he hoped that "not one particle of uranium produced in Czechoslovakia will ever be used for wholesale destruction and annihilation." Uranium is a source of iiaterial for atomic energy and lie atomic bomb. At another P9int, Masaryk de- lorcd anti-Semitism. "After what lias happened to the ews," he said, "solution of their iroblem is undeniably the duty of 1 decent people." Nasrnllah Knte/.am, Iranian delc- ite, said Iran's appeal for help settling her dispute with Soviet "lussia over political conditions in ers. The steel industry generally has paid somewhat less than the auto industry, according to experienced labor, observers, and,therefore .the president might, suggest - 17"T-2"6r'18"cen'ts. • ; Those close to the president were Jving no hint, however, that he vould select such a figure. Conferees at yesterday's White Souse sessions seemed agreed that ,he talks brought no change in the situation. Fairless, after consulting other leaders in the industry, many of them in Washington awaiting developments, was armed with new arguments against the 19 J-S-cent increase. And Murray reportedly would not budge. At the start of yesterday's talks, Ross reported, Mr. Truman called the conferees into his office and told Murray and Fairless that "it was vital to the interest of the coun. try that they reach an agreement." lorthcrn Iran might be formally presented the 11-nation security council tomorrow. Members of thc security council irranged to hold their first meet- ng today, but preliminary indica- The afternoon session broke up nearly five hours later, then resumed at 8 p. m. At that time, Ross said, Mr. Truman urged the two men "in very vigorous terms" to come to an understanding. The president cancelled plans to attend a concert with his family and then stood by. It was nearly 9:45 when he sent Murray and Fairless to their hotels to "sleep over it and pray over it." Labor experts believe a settlement in the steel industry would be followed by agreements in most other wage struggles now underway in autos, meat packing, electrical manufacturing and shipbuilding. On the other hand, these experts fear that industrial turmoil would follow a collapse of the steel negotiations and a strike in that key reconversion industry. Schwellenbach, who has been in on the steel conferences, invited the AFL and CIO unions involved in the meat strike, along with the "big four" packers, to meet with him here today in an effort to halt that dispute.
