"The greatest problem in rendering lard is to prevent rancidity. caused by heat, air, light, and moisture. After the lard has become rancid, nothing can be done to make it useable."

Trim off all lean meat and skin. The lean meat is likely to stick to the kettle and give the lard a scorched taste, and skins contain gelatin not needed in lard. Cut the meat in small pieces so it will cook more quickly. Put a small amount of fat into the kettle and let it molt before adding the remainder ol' the fat. Stir the fat constantly. Never lot the temperature get above 255 degrees Fahrenheit. If a c^rrlv or lard thermometer is available, use it to determine the temperature. When steam stops coming off the lard, lower the fire. I Continue to cook the fat. The cracklings will turn brown, float. I and gradually sink to the bottom of i the kettle. When about half of the | cracklings have settled to the bot- I tom. remove the lard f.vorn the fire. Let the lard cool slightly, then strain through several cheese cloths into five or ten pound, container-5. Fill the containers as nearly to the top as possible and cover tightly. If the lard is stored immediately at a temperature near or below freezing, a finer gra'n will he produced. Metal containers can be quickly cooled by setting in cold water.

Fletcher Willson was discovered at 7:23 a. m. today at the base of I ;c old quarry cliff that rises 80 feet from Quarry Road to form the northern boundary of the Willson property. And Chit's Edge, palatial estate of Westbrook's own "royal" family, which was to have been the gala scene this morning of the annual Willson picnic for the employes oi the Willson mills, becomes instead the grim backdrop of the most sensational murder investigation this town nas ever known. The entire Willson family is being held for questioning. District Attorney Jeffrey Elazlett and County Detectives Zern and Straiib are on the job. They promise striking disclosures before nightfall. The strikingly handsome Mrs. Willson, a resident of Philadelphia, had been visiting her husband's family for the past few days. She was accompanied by Lieutenant Willson, who is scheduled to return to active duty next Friday, and their two young sons. Mrs. Willson will be remembered as Phillipa Carey, an employe of the Willson Mills, before her marriage. Her elopement six years ago with Fletcher Willson, son of the president ancl largest stockholder of the mills, was a bombshell to Westbrook society at the time. It has been hinted that she was never actually "accepted" by the staid, old-line Willson clan. The facts revealed so far are confusing.

In a dispatch irom Heijo, Korea, Tass assailed the "reactionary p.-ess" of southern Korea i'or iillcg- edly carrying on an Anti-Soviet propaganda campaign and :>u' attacking the decision of the United States, Russia and Great Britain lo set up a five-year trusteeship in Korea. The dispatch then said: "Here the behavior of the American command in southern Korea astonishes one. It has assumed a position of inspiring reactionary demonstrations against the decisions of the Moscow conference of foreign ministers in which, as is known, the government of the United Stales participated." The dispatch also attacked what it called "the counterfeit government of Kim Koo and Syng Man Jihce. leaders of Ihe unrccognixed governrncnl sel up in exile." declaring lhal their activity is "directed against hampering the decisions of the Moscow conference of foreign ministers of Korea, on starting a civil was inside (ho counlrv and on inflaming hostility toward" the Soviet union."

Lancy said prices received yesterday, all in excess of engine'ers' estimated costs, were "not too bad" except on one job.' 1 Highway Department officials previously announced that prices ranged from six to eight per cent above estimated costs on two jobs awarded and ,'iti per cent above costs on one job on which all bids were rejected. "We are going ahead with the program where bids are not too high above our estimates but these increcascd prices will naturally force us to trim our mileage," he said. The governor said highway officials did not blame contractors for the prices fixed on their bids "because they do not know themselves what future prices will be by the time they can complete a job."

The culprit in tho mailer was Hep. William Thorn, an Ohio democrat. In Ihc course of some otherwise innucnous remarks he referred lo .Senator Tall as and. we shudder to repeal it— "Senator Taft."

Aeling Speaker McCorniack responded with this opinion- which, if iiccuratcly reported, must set a new House record for qualifying phrases in one sentence: "Speak- in;; only for myself, in general, the names of member.!; of the other body are, in my opinion, in most in stances not used on the House floor."

HOPE, ARKANSAS, THURSDAY, JANUARY 24, 1946 By R. H. SHACKFORD London, J'an. 24 —(UP)— The United Nations voted today to set up an atomic energy commission after hearing Secretary of State .lames F. Byrnes advocate the withdrawal as soon as possible of allied occupation forces — Including American — from ail countries except Germany and Japan. Byrnes, at a later press conference, recommended early hearings by the UNO security council for states accused of actions threatening international relations. The United States will press tomorrow at a security council meeting for preliminary hearings immc- dialel.y on three "situations" before it •— Soviet charges against Britain and Iranian charges against Kussia. Korly-scvcn of the 51 United Nations voted to adopt a resolution providing for an atomic energy commission as drafted in Moscow by the Big Three foreign ministers. Byrnes, urging approval of the resolution, indirectly appealed lo Russia, Britain and France lo withdraw occupation forces whose presence in Iran, Greece, Indonesia and the Levant precipitated the first international accusations before the UNO. He made il plain that his stand on the withdrawal applied to American policy in North China and Korea. In cffccl he put the United States on record as proposing to pull out. occupation troops as soon as the surrender of Japanese forces was effected and a civilian trusteeship was set up for Korea. Later, and jnst before his departure for Washington as scheduled, Byrnes proposed that tho security council hear quickly the issues labeled before the UNO as threatening world peace. Again he took the opportunity to deny that he and British Foreign Secretary Krnesl Bcvin had disagreed on how to handle the Greek, Iranian and Indonesian problems. The British press had said Byrnes wanted to shelve the issues while Bcvin wanted an immediate showdown. Byrnes said the mailer never had been discussed. Byrnes' return to Washington is in keeping with plans made before his arrival here to leave as soon as the atomic energy resolution had been adopted. Edward R. Slettinius Jr. will be chairman of the U. S. delegation in Byrnes' absence, and representative on the Scurily Council. Ren. .

CUTTER Washington, Jan. 24—-( UP)— The Pearl Harbor committee received a report today that radar equipment ordered by the army's Hawaiian Defense Command was laying idle on Oakland, Calif., docks al the time of the Pearl Harbor disaster. Lt. Gen. Walter C. Short, commander of army defenses in Hawaii, had told the committee of his fights for priorities to gel radar equipment for anti-aircraft prolcc- liiin. Today hi! read lo the committee a telegram from a former Signal Corps major reporting that radar lowers he could have used were delayed in transit. The telegram was sent yesterday Irom Waterloo, la., by George D. Lea.sk, former major in tho Army tiom Waterloo, la., by George D. U-ask, former major in the Army Signal Corps. Short .said he didn't know Leask and that Ihc telegram had come lo him unsolicited. In Ihe Iclegram, Leask told Short lhal ho vyas transferred to Oakland, Calif., on Dec. 10, as assistant signal officer for the San Francisco port of embarkation. "Lying on the Oakland pier for a long lime were three 100-foot radar lowers No. SCR 271," he \v::-od. "In my opinion is these radio towers had not been delayed on the Oakland clocks you could have used them lo good advantage Dec. 7, !!)•!!," the wire concluded. Short told the committee when ..apan struck his command was alcrlcd only against .sabotage because there was nothing in advices from Washington lo threaten any other form of -attack. "There wa.s nothing before me to show an attack on Hawaii " he lest.illed. -'There was the likelihood ul sabotage." Short argued that his cstimalo of the situation, based on the informa- I lion he had, was logical. He said thai officers in Military .Intelligence at Washington who | also didn't have intcrccplcri Japa- iiiese messages available to the Ihigh command arrived at the .same conclusion in an "estimate of the situation" they drafted Nov. 20.

Blandy, head of the navy's division on special weapons, ticked off for the Senate atomic energy committee these details of Ihc epochal experiment, known by the codeword "Operation Crossroads": 1. In the target fleet will be 50 operating ships — tvyo aircraft carriers, four battleships, two cruisers, 1G destroyers, eight .submarines, and IS transports from "U. S fleets, plus a German heavy cruiser, a Japanese battleship and light cruiser —- and 47 of other craft such as landing ships. 2. The undertaking "is combined or international lion; but ralher a scientific cx'peri ment by Ihe United Slates government alone." Tho question of permitting foreign observers has not yet been decided. 3. The unmanned target ships "will be anchored and placed in a manner calculated to give effects varying from probable destruction lo ncgliblc damage" in each type. 4. The first test, early in May, calls for detonating an atomic bomb at an altitude of several hundred feet above the target vessels. A second test, tentatively set for July 1, will be an atomic burst al the water's surface in the target not a opcra- . r ). A deep water lest in the open :;ca is planned later, but technical difficulties preclude its coming off this year. 6. "Task Force One" a fleet of 50 additional U. S. navy ships make arrangements for recording its results by. all modern scientific techniques. ; Blandy, who has been named commander for the entire lest by the joint chiefs of staff, revealed lhal some of the best-known units of the U. S. fleet had been marked for target vessels. They include: < The Saratoga, oldest U. S. carrier afloat which carried the figh,l from Guadalcanal lo Jap homo waters; the Cruiser Salt Lake Citxi "the one ship fleet" of Solomons fame; the battleship Pennsylvania and Nevada, two Pearl Harbor victims lhat came back from near destruction lo slug out the rest of the war; the Arkansas, oldest batllc^ wagon in Ihc navy, and the New York, veteran of action from North Africa lo Okinawa. The "cruiser caincr" Independence also will be a '-argot. Japanese participants will be the ,'i2,720-ton battleship Nagato, Hag-, ship of Admiral Yamamoto at the war's outbreak, and the G,000-ton light cruiser Sakawa. The Nagato was damaged in the closing phases ol the battle of Lcyle gull in Ocr tobcr 1944 and again in July 1945 wnen a carrier strike caught her in ifapnnc.se home waters where she later was captured. \ The German entry is the 10,000 ton Prinx Eugcn, which has just arrived in Boston from Europe. This heavy cruiser was accompanying the Bismarck when a British force caught up with that battleship and sank it. In his statement prepared for the atomic committee, Blandy described the purpose of the experiment as "primarily to determine the effects of the atomic bomb upon naval vessels in order to gain information of value to the national defense. The ultimate results of the tests so far as the Navy is concerned will be their translation into terms of U, S. sea- power. "Secondary purposes arc to afford training for Army Air Forces personnel in attack with atomic bomb against ships and to determine the effect of the atomic bomb upon military installations and equipment."

National Wage Ow By Fairless By CHARLES WELSH Pittsburgh, Jan. 24 — (yp) — A national wage policy was urged today by resident B. F. Fairless of U. S. Steel Corporation as the steel companies and the CIO-United Steclworkcrs turned anew to President Truman for a solution of the four-day-old strike . Terming wages "a national problem," Fairless offered "a proposal which I believe might open the way lo a solution not only of tho steel strike but the other strikes that'now plague the country." In a nationwide radio address last night he asked the president to summon •'immediately" leaders of industry All Striking AFL Meat Packers Told to Stand by for Instructions Robbery Victim Tells About First Million Dollar Post War Robbery in Hong Kong -® By HAL BOYLE The telegram, signed oy Karl Hong Kong, Jan. 24 —(/I')— This since died during the Japanese oc- Jim erson, president of the AFL r ,i •••-;,--. - " f"' l ' OW V , coion .y's first postwar mil- cupation," Tan continued, "and con Amalgamated Meat Cutters and for their advice on what wage in- llon dollar jewel robbery has bared seyucntly I am now deprived of *>utcner Wommen of America, and c-rnaao "ihi c „,,,,„<,.„ „„„ —i n sir.-imto tMin. n f ,-,,i^.«,i „ :,.. me cnance to aven g e t nal gric- omcr international oilicers oi tne Chicago, Jan. 24 —(/P)— The striking AFL Meat Packers Union today telegraphed all its locals to "stand by for instructions from. our general office."

The jewelry — valued rougnly at a million Hong Kong dollars, or more than 200,000 American dollars — was stolen from his home last week by three bandits during his absence. Explaining • the source of his weahn, Tan wrote: 1-2 cents an hour pay increase sug gestion. There was no immediate comment from the White House on either proposal as the walkout of 750,000 steelworkers stretched paralyzing tentacles toward other industries. Already the 29-slale steel strike had forced 15,000 coal miners into idleness. Fabricating plants were curtailing hours and working forces. Milk deliveries were jeopardized in New York and on the west coast by container shortages. Ther were no new peace movements to contradict the forecast of a "long and bitter" strike made by the trade magazine "Iron Age." CIO-USW President Philip Murray told newsmen he saw no reason why mediators should be assigned to attempt to bring management and union together again. The president himself had tried to mediate and the industry refused his recommendation, Murray said. Fairless, speaking for the American Iron and Steel Institute which ;reprcsenls virtually the entire industry, termed "ridiculous" the repeated charges by Murray of a big-business "conspiracy" to break up labor unions. "You don't destroy unions by offering them the highest wage increase in history," Fairless said. He described management's offer of a 15-cent boost as "our absolute limit." It was made he said, ' --was ...inf armed... from .. Wash- ... ... .. ington by a high government official that the government .was willing to sanction some price increase over the promised $4 a ton if the labor dispute could be settled." The earlier management offer of 12 1-2 cents had been has on a $4 steel price boost. "Off-hand, a difference of a few cents an hour may seem small," Fairless said. "But when applied to the hundreds of thousands of our employes and those of the rest of the steel industry, the wage increase involves additional labor costs running into millions of dol- crcasc would swell labor costs lo lars." He estimated a 15-cent in- thc industry by $135,000,000 yearly. The steel union wage committee, after a meeting here lo discuss with Murray his actions in the steel negotiations, reaffirmed his acceptance of the presidential wage proposal and declared USW members "will resume work at the plants of any company prepared to pay" the 18 1-2 cent increase. "About eight years ago while I was a resident in Singapore, I had the unhappy experience of being ma'de to suiter a grievance at the hands of a certain rich man.
