By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP World Traveler Madrid. Jan. 26 — Generalissimo Franco is quick to combat any suggestion that his government is backward in political reform^ as I found during rny interview with him in the palace where he resides at El Pardo, near Madrid. ••• Of course the term "backward" is relative. Progress which would seem slow in one country might be regarded as good going in another. Apropos of this matter of speed. I had asked Franco if he was headed for absolute democracy, that is. rule by the people, and he had replied: "Yes But we must proceed slowly — step by step — until the people are properly prepared." _ I introduced the oueslion by saying the impression abroad, right or wrong, is that very little has been done towards political reform iix Spain — a purposely blunt approach to the subject: I suggested .that it would be very useful if the 'generalissimo could clear up this matter. ' "With much pleasure," he responded, "although it is very difficult for people to be able to in- fejrpret the facts about others without knowing the situation and events which went before. The United States is a young and new- country in political life. Spain has lived a great deal of political life and lived it very rapidly.

"I am sure that the day on which the United States has passed :hrough these or similar phases, its public opinion will understand perfectly the problems of Spain. "Since our way of liberation (the civil war of 1936-39) ended, the progress and perfection of Spanish jpolitics have been constant. For three years the Spanish Cprstes (parliament.! has been functioning without interruption. In it the syndicates, the municipal governments and the corporations have their elective representation, and during this time there have been discussd and drawn up — with important changes in the original bills — a great number of important laws. Some of them, which met with many difficulties, had to be withdrawn by the ministers who presented them. Recently there has been promulgated the referendum law, in order to effect consultation of the nation in those laws which ar transcendent, and there is now in preparation the new electoral census which will permit us 'to establish the natural play of public consultation. "The council of state and the supreme court of justice — traditional organs among Spanish institutions — function today with all regularity, and their decision against the cats of the government are sincerely executed and respected by it. Not a month passes without the official bulletin printing some decision of the council favorable to the plaintiffs in their damage suits against the acts of the government. "If to these, which constitute institutions similar to those that other democratic countries posses — there is added the rectitude of conscience which, among Catholic principles, besides over Spanish life, you will find perfectly explained this political reform which is unknown abroad. Unfortunately, there is still a great deal of effort and money which exiles and their associates wish to use to hide this truth and to give an erroneous impression abroad." o At a recent ceremony in Washington, D. C., the Army Air Forces were presented with the billionth gallon of aviation gasoline produced by American refineries. The gasoline will be preserved in a special vial as a permanent aviation exhibit. COMPLETE HOUSEHOLD FURNI- shings including Tappan range. Apply 122 West Ave. C.

After the luncheon he will go to Yokohama and board the ballle- ship New Jersey which will return him to the United States. Krucger's military career began 48 years ago as a private in the Spanish American War. It reached its zenith when he took over a comparative handful of men and equipment in New Guinea in the summer of 1943 and whipped them into one of the mosl powerful fighling units in Ihe Pacific by the time the Sixth fought Und won the battle of the Philippines Uvo vcars later. In ils 4500-mile push throunh the Southvycsl Pacific from Woodlark and Kiriwina islands lo Luzon, the Sixth counted 225,000 Japanese dead. One enlisted man and 21 officers who went to Auslralia with Krue- formed a partnership and became half-owner of several bars and restaurants. He hnd 17 juke boxes scattered around Hong Kong when the Japanese struck. After the island fell he was icrded * along with 3,000 other American and European residents nlo Stanley Bay concentration camp. The Japanese, flushed wilh victory, agreed to let prisoners send out one man lo buy 300,000 Hong Kong dollars worth of food to supplement their rations. The man the British prisoners asked to spend their money was California-born Chester Bennett — accausc he knew the food business and they had faith in him.

By JOAN TWELFTREE > United Press Staff Correspondent London, Jan. 25 — (UP) —Mrs Eleanor Rooscvcll warned Brilish brides of G. I.'s lhal Ihcy would encounter prejudices in certain parts of Ihc Unilcd Slalcs. She advised them to be paticn with Americans who misunder stand relations with the Unilec Kingdom in a speech lasl night during a reception at Rainbow Center. "If you go >to certain parls of Ihe United Slales there is a prejudice — a perfectly unreasonable prejudice — which dates back from American history books thai never have been changed," Mrs. Roosevelt said in Ihe address which she titled "A Guide to G. I. Brides." The 1,000 wives in; the audience were lold, "You will nol find much real understanding of what you have been through in the past few years. Thai will be Irying and will hurl you. You will have lo discipline yourselves and show a grcal deal of understanding." Mrs. Roosevelt said, "You will understand the men who have been in the war better than many American women." American men who had been in the war would find it easy to talk to Ihem while finding it very hard lo lalk lo Iheir own families, she said. Warning Ihe brides lo be prepared to find many differences, Mrs. Roosevell said,, "People may annoy you. It's just thai Ihcy have nol had the same background and the same experiences." The women, mosl of whom cx- pocl lo leave soon for their new homes in the U. S., were keenly interested in learning what the conditions of living arc in i America and Mrs. Roosevelt was bombarded with questions concerning the housing shortage and the food and employment situalions. She answered, "You will find a housing shortage, bill il is not as bad as "here. In New York Ihc sil- tuation is extremely difficult bul I do not think it's as 'bad in some towns and villages." She told Ihe brides that they would not find any prejudice gainst their laking jobs in the United States. "You are' going to wonder what anyone in America has to com)lain about," she said. "That's because you come from a country vhere Ihe war has been right on your doorstep." Advising the brides thai they vould nol gel afternoon tea, Mrs. Roosevelt said, "You will find cof- ee is Ihe American vice and yoi will have lo learn to make il the vay we make it," Three Tie in Second Round of Golf Open Phoenix, Ariz., Jan. 26 —(UP) — Ben Hogan, Ellsworth Vines-and Walter Burkomo went inlo Ihc second . round of Ihc $7,500 Phoenix open golf championships lied for the lead today. a money-maker, vines, the len- a., money-maker, vines, the len- nis-playcr - turned - golfer, and Biirkomo, a dark-horse from Detroit just out of the Army after serving in Europe, each toured the Phoenix Country Club course in (36, five under par.

Jan. 28 — (UP) — The administration bill to forbid discrimination against Jews, Negroes and others is revealing it self as Ihe mosl heavily loaded po litical lime bomb In land in this capital in many a year. II is bound lo go off sometime. The odds right now arc long, however, that Ihe Senale fihbuslci by .southern Democrats will prevent enaclmcnl al Ihis congressional session of legislation lo establish a permanent Fair Employ ment Practices Commission. To some or many of the senalors and representatives the FEPC issue unquestionably appeals «s a mailer of right and juslicc lo I American minorities. To a great many others, however, il is as po- lilieal as a pork barrel appropriation to spend a lot of federal money lor something or other back home. The biggest political prize in the FEPC bill is Negro voles. The fads arc lhal World War I brought hundreds of thousands of Negro workers and potential voters to northern industrial centers. World War II attracted more. Politicians estimate thai in a dozen of our mosl industrialized northern slates, the Negro vole is of balance of power proportions. Both parties competed for Ihe Negro trade in their 1044 national conventions by including endorsement of fair employment practices Many Republicans sec such legislation as the party's best opportunity to bring back to the GOP Ihe millions of Negro voters who deserted to the late Franklin D. Roosevelt. A census ultimately will show how much World War II migration increased the Nogro population of the North. William Hard elriled some years ago in the Sal- irelay Evening Post how Ihe flood iclc of Negroes came to the North luring the'First World War. Hard reported that the center oi Nci'ro population in 1910 was in lorthcastcrn Alabama.

There was bitter southern Democratic complaint in the Senate when the administration FEPC bill was brought up for debate some days ago. President Truman was •ebukcd for permitting such legis- ulion lo come before Ihc Senale when Ihc mailer of labor-management relations and other urgent problems went unattended. Those complaints were mostly political double talk, although the speakers were in deadly earnest. But while they protested, they were entirely familiar with the fact thai if Ihe Democratic side oJ the Senale had nol brought up the FEPC bill when it did, the Republican side was going lo bring il up. The Democrats brought the bill in, therefore, partly lo gain the political advantage which will go with Ihc action and to prevent the Republicans from, being able to tell Negro voters thai il was the GOP which sought action on their bill of rights. After the filibusler has killed the FEPC bill for this session there .still will remain a chance to obtain action in the House. Thc;rc a pcli- lion is pending seeking immediate consideration.
