Fob. 5 —UP)— Wliitey Kurowski. the St. Louis Cardinals' solid thumping third baseman, and speedy Luis Olmo of the Brooklyn Dodgers are the latest players to join the big league holdout brigade. Kurowski. who was the National League's fifth ranking batter and his club's leading belter with a .323 average kist season, shot back his unsigned contract to owner Sam Breadon yesterday, remarking that the terms were anything but satisfactory. It had been rumored ever since the last diamond campaign ended that the blond, 193-pound" infiolder was ticketed for the Philadelphia Phils and it is known in baseball circles that he is one of a group of Redbird stars who would like to do their ball playing in different uniforms. Olmo, who rapped out a fancy .313 average for 1945 and handled himself able .in centerfield, announced in Puerto Rico that he was dissatisfied with the terms Brooklyn offered and asserted that he would not leave for spring training until he came to an ag-eement with the club. The veteran Dixie Walker, who played alongside of Olmo in the Dodger picket line, also is unhappy over the contract mailed out by Brooklyn Prexv Branch Rickey it has been learned. Dixie, who' led the senior circuit with a .357 mark in 1944, slumped off to .30 0 last season. The New York Giants are having trouble getting Danny Gardella, the clowning first basemanout tielder, to sign his name to a con tract while Washington's Walt Masterson is said to have rejected his original offer. Big Hank Grcenberg, the Detroit Tigers' slugging outfielder, doesn't expect to have any trouble reach- •ing an agreement with the American Leaguers although he said here yesterday that he had not yet received a contract from General Manager George Trautman. Greenberg added that Troutman was going to mail a contract within a week. In good shape and ready to head tor the Timers Lakeland, Fla., training camp, the former army air forces captain indicated he would sign for around $65,000. Plenty of other diamond news popped up yesterday as the bulk of the major leaguers began pack ing for their jaunts to the sunny training grounds. •The Phils announced the purchase of Pitcher Alvin Jurisich and Outfielder John Wyrostek from the closed sum and also reported the St. Louis Cardinals for an undis- signing of southpaw hurlcr Ken Raff ensberger... Cleveland's Indians announced the signing of in players...The Braves reported that Pitcher Johnny Hatchings and Shortstop Dick Culler were in' the fold...Buddy Ke'rr, Giants' second sacker, received a neat raise for his work during the last campaign ...and Cleveland's Bobby feller said in Tampa that the New York Yankees again would be the team to beat in 194C but that the American League race would be' very close.

The blizzard which reduced visibility to zero, was accompanied by winds of hur ncane force. The boiling seas foiled all attempts to get a line aboard the liner which lay on the rocks her stern dipping down into the water Her position was made even more precarious because of the danger that she might slip off into the water,, whioii is 1,500-feet deep at that point. When the liner broke in two, the after section rolled to starboard but the forward part, including the salon deck, remaining solidly grounded on the rocks. The Yukon's captain, Christian E Trondsen, Seattle, had ordered all persons aboard in the forward part when it became apparent that the vessel was breaking up Tronden reported that no one aboard the vessel was injured when she ran aground about 9 a. m The Yukon crashed into the rocks after a rough eight-hour journey from seaward. At first it was thought she suffered only superficial damage and would be iloated again at high tide, but as the storm increased in intensity and began to batter the ship, it became clear that she was doomed. .Rescue operations were started immediately after she went aground. Gen. Delos Emmonss, commander of the Alaskan department ordered all B-17s based in the Aleutians equipped with power launches to proceed to the scene He also ordered army doctors and nurses from Fort Richardson to beward to care for the passengers as they are returned here. By The Associated Press With war veterans flocking into th? classrooms in great, unexpected numbers, every college in' Arkansas boasts its largest enrollment since the beginning of the war for the second semester, and at least three schools have established all-time records.

Additional instructors sought and new dormitories planned by Hommo Admits Witnessing Death March By WILLIAM C. WILSON Manila, Feb. 5—(UP)—Lt. Gen. Masaharu Homma admitted at his war crimes trial today that he traveled along the route of the Bataan Death. Maj-ch and .saw *rio "tired and Haggard" column of, war prisoners moving toward Son Fernando. He denied, however, that he saw any bodies of march victims along the road. Homma, testifying in his own defense, attempted to shift blame to the Japanese navy for the bombing of Manila after it had been declared an open city. He-said he did not learn of the declaration until three days after it was announced. He pointed out that army planes did not fly south of Baguib and that strategic bombing was carried out by navy planes based on Formosa. In his opening testimony, Homma declared he was a liberal, broad-minded man who lost his job as Japanese commander in the Philipnines because he had been a Pacifist. Homraa told a U. S. military tribunal trying him for war crimes that War Premier Hideki Tojo dis liked him because of his peace policies and retired him prematurely Reviewing his 38-year military career, Homma said that eight years spent as an attache in London "broadened my outlook and liberalized my views." He said he led a minority peace group before the war in opposition to the war-minded group head ed by Tojo. His group he said was composed largely of military men who had served as attaches in Washington and London. He said Tojo openly abused him during a conference regarding Manchuria's participation in the anticominlern pact which "I op, posed because Manchuria was not iccognized by the powers." In 1939, Homma said he openly opposed Tojo's appointment as vice war minister on the ground that "it Tojo became war minister he might lead the army anywhere." "After that Tojo's dislike for me progressively increased," he said. Rejected iii-vt fall.

Byler Finds Jail to Be Homelike Ballesville, Fab. 5—(UP)—After two months of cave life, a young Arkansas couple today found that confinement in Jzard county jail offered home-like comfort. Hubert Byler and his 17-year-old wife, Esther Lee, held in connection with the slaying of Sheriff Lawrence Harber, said life in an Dzark mountain cave was worse than anything the state could offer. It was so bad, Byler told police he would "rather be dead than Jive lik" that" any longer. For food, the 34-year-old accused slayer and his wife lived on infrequent packages smuggled to them by a relative. Byler's surrender Sunday night ended a two-month statewide police search. Police said he claimed he shot Harber in self defense when the sheriff attempted to arrest him for forgery Dec. 4. He said Harber had a gun in his hand and he was afraid the officer was prepared to shol. Both Byler arid his wife are charged with first degree murder. "Ho prematurely retired me in 1942." Lt. Gen.

The witness described Iloinma as "having a strong sense of justice and being pro-English, peace- loving and moderate" while Tojo was "pro-German, powersceking, extremist mid radical."

Dingle, world-renowned geographer, honored by leading geographical societies, the power of the atom as disclosed in the atom bomb, is small compared with little known and seldom used powers of the human brain. He maintains that man, instead .of being limited by an average man power mind, has within him the mind power of a thous- ancf men or more, as well us the energy power of the universe, which can be used in his daily affairs. According to him, this sleeping Miant of mind-power, when awakened, can make man capable of surprising accomplishments. It it as arnax.ing as the atom bomb is com- oarcd with former sources of energy. Many thousands of people throughout the world have already tried his methods. Many report improvement in power of mind, achievement of brilliant business jnd professional success. Others report improvement in health, increased strength, courage, poise or energy, or u more magnetic personality. He tells how he found these strange methods in far off and mysterious Tibet, often called the land of miracles by the few travelers permitted to visit it. Here, he discloses, he learned rare wisdom and long hidden practices, closely guarded for throe thousand years by the sages, which enabled many to perform ama/ini; feats These immense powers, he rnai'i- lains, arc latent in all of UK and! methods for u.si:i» them uiv now simplified so that they c;in \y> used by almost any persjii with ordinary inlelliyenre.

O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Peanuts constitute nearly huh the aspirated organic material found in the lung. Very young children should not cat peanuts an varieties because of the greater danger of aspiration by them. Chil- ciicn are often ridiculed by their parents when they say they have- swallowed something, but this is not a wise policy. Foreign bodies have a fifty-filly chance of going into the lungs or esophagus. lihimedlalc coughing and choking arc suggestive ol lung entrance, but symptoms may be delayed when the piece is so small thai obstruction to the bronchi docs not occur. Late cf feels of lung foreign bodies are abscess and chronic inflammalion. SUSPECT DRY COUGH Young children are more apt to aspirate foreign bodies because of the shape of their larynx and its position high in the throat. They lack development of the mechanism for shutting off the larynx when they are swallowing food. Children may play with peanuts in theirs mouth and aspirate one in this way Any foreign body in the lung causes cough esepecially when the child is crying or moving about. A constant, dry, irritating cough comes on in spells, it sug gests that the foreign body may bu moving around, Lungs con- secretions and this further interferes with breathing.

Murray, Head ofClO,Ca!!ed in by Truman Washington, Feb. 4 —(/'Pj— President Truman held a hurriedly- called conference with Secretary of Labor Schwellenbach and CIO President Philip Murray today in a renewed White House effort to end the sleel strike deadlock. Neither Schwellenbach nor Murray would comment as they emerged from the half hour session, which began at the unusually eaily hour of 0:30 a. m., but the labor .secretary said: "We came out smiling." Murray, who also is head of the IO United Sleel Workers, said nly to reporters: "The president asked me to omc over to talk with him about le steel situation." "Whatever is said has got to on-.e from him," Murray added. Asked if he was optimistic for a etllomenl, ho said merely "I'm orover an optimist." Administration sources appeared o be becoming more cheerful gain about prospects for n break :i the deadlock between Murray's nion and the steel companies. Immediately after Ihc confer- nee, While House aides announced hat OPA Administrator Chester wct.'p, so nuns • me world away, and that pattern of behavior for the feminine sex has been generally accepted. Goodness know.'.; why, for, taking it by and lnr;;e. women have no more trials and tribulations to wail over than men have, but while we scorn iho man who goes around blubbering over his troubles, we coddle the sob sister and lend a sympathetic ear to he)' moans. And certainly tears are no aid lo beauty, for not one woman in len thousand can cry without her eyes getting red and her nose swelling up and looking like what Mr. Mantilini in Dickons' story called a "dcmmed. rnoisl, in,pleasant body." Still, for all of that, we cling to the superstition thai there is something sweet and feminine about a woman being a free weeper, and we actually respect those who never "'-',et over" things and who go along nursing a grief for half a lifetime. And women themselves help along this tradition thai a woman's most becoming look is one of melancholy as one suffering from a secret sorrow, and they are always suspicious of another woman not being any better than she should be if she is jolly and has a laugh that is hung on u hair-trigger. Effective Act Of course, women's faith in wecp- inf.! has been justified by results. The cry-baby act has got them what they wanted. Many a man has not only been floated to the altar on the tears of a woman he didn't •love and didn't want to marry, but has spent the balance of his life in drying her eyes on mink coats anc Bowles would sec the president at 3:30 this al'ternon. Bowles has been holding out for a $2.50 a ton increase in steel prices, while the industry is seeking a $6.25 boost to compensate for a wage increase. The president is reported to be flicking by his proposal that the 750,000" striking steel workers be given an H! \-2 cents an hour increase. Current conferences apparently have to do with a decision on how much an increase should be granted manufacturers in the price of steel.

The happy homes, without cxcep- ion, are those in which there is a woman who is a smiler instead of weeper, a woman who keeps her .roubles lo herself, who chirks up ier family when they gel discouraged, and who turns all of the little misadventures of domestic life ink) joke;;. She may not be a good cook, or pcnny-pincher, but the food you cat lo laughter has a flavor that no rncal has that is salted down in brine, arid you can't pay too high a price for gaiety. The modern woman has many faults, but she has one virtue that outweighs them all. She is not a cry-baby. She is meeting life with ihe smile that won't come off, instead of the tsars that will never cease flowing.
