GILROY. O.D. \Vhen one reads with a sense Of realism, much l.\ the story of ancient Israel, and especially in the story o; the migration from | common Egypt, tne wandering in the wild- i was the erness and the conquest of Canaan. ! Book of is full of strange contrasts. j prophets, Here and there- are thoughts 01" i lion in a loving and morciful God. cherishing and guiding a people, as in verse 13. of the llth chapter of Numbers: "Jehovah is slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression. Hu: elsewhere adverse events and happenings arc represented as the juuinnenis and inflictions of put'.ishment by an angry God. Prosperity ami a'dve:-- sity are represented, respective!.-, as marking God's favor "of God's disapproval. For this there w;>.s nri rant in the. nature of the times and the life of the people. Today great masses of innocent and unoffending people may be subject to sreat suffering and disaster from causes over which they have r.o control. Remote events in the world may bring upon them starvations and death: or ' merciful and helpful attitudes on the part ot peoples removed j to others from them by oceans may give ( Ion; them hopes of survival aucf of! iil-.- ulamate restoration and huppi-i aio~ 'ness. ! the All this we see in our own times. ! We are conscious of how much depends upon us, the people of America, who are given tne opportunity of playing ihc part o; providence to millions of needy frl- .low-mortals. But in ancient Israel, particularly in the wilderness life of a closely-knit community, health, saftely and prosperity — -or disease, adversity and disaster —depended much more directly upon the peeplo themselves, it; their moral charcter. their consideration for one anotncr and their willingness lo accept disciplines in, behalf of common protection and welfare. The early intororete"s of God's purposes and will did not allow ite for the moral uses of adversity. They had no adequate religious philosphy to meet, or explain. the inflictions of suffering that seem to tall upon the good, as well as upon the evil, in tht experiences of life. This problem faced in the Job. and by the later with a suggested solu- the admonition, "whom the Lord luvcth He chasteneth. Nevertheless, apart from the e\ pcriences that are beyond ono own control, and which must be borne with faith and fortitude, and which yield what Paul call.- "tho peaceable fruit of righteousness, the primitive life of Israel inals.es plain what happens when a people refuse to accept and c.xcer iso the reasonable disciplines that are inevitably associated with moral character and social responsi- came upon them failed. And no nation is secure when moral and social disciplines are disregarded and refused. Here in our country today we are facing serious consequences because large numbers of people are morally and socially undisciplined. At the lowest scale are the willfully criminal, car- notaing about wtiat happens or how they suffer, a.s ; as they themselves get their otten gains. A little higher those who operate within law. but whose greed and seflishness are little less than criminal in their results. Much higher, but morally and socially ineffective, are the "good" people who live themselves. but who do little to restrain evil. Social discipline, as well as self-discipline, is at the very foundation ; of social welfare. It is as true: ! today as in the day that God i spake on Sinai. j o- He'll Take the Short End HOPE, ARKANSAS Friday,J[ebruary 8, 1946 They Ask for Is the Moon 6 Bookies at Hoi Springs Washington San Antonio By HAROLD DV. RATLIFF San Antonio, Texas. Feb. o— i.-P — The 87,500 Texas open swung into its first round today with Byron Nelson somewhat reluctantly " accepting the role of favorite. " The tall Texas, who has won 21 tournaments in little more than a year, has beer; complaining that he's off -his game ?7id has (-•--•->getting in several hours practice daily in an eiiort to correct it. isiu the folks around Brackenridge Park course must think its ;: psychological move because plents* still are willing to back Nelson against the field with cash. .Nelson's scores have been unimpressive. Yesterday he pestcd ;, 72— one over par — as he played in the pro-amateur event and said hf: was sadly deficient in putting. The other golfers ioked about ft but Byron indicated it wasn't particularly funny to him. Nelson might take the lead in money winning for the year to date although missing three of live capture oft tournaments if ho should first prize of $1,600 here.

Washburn Murfrcosboro Dam for Flood Control and Recreation This Winter's incessant rain ndd.s emphasis to the South's efforts to {,01 flood control measures through the federal congress. I'loods will always be more ot M II " ° 1 "' c ' limi 'to than in the Nor horn states. Up there the low Winter temperatures freeze water and there is no great threat of flood until- the Spring thaws loosen the ice in the rivers. And even then the,.brunt ot the flood threat falls ujjon the South, where the meltine waters congregate. Our government has spent a lot of-tax money in the last dozen years—gone into debt for much more lhan the cost of the war And .vet most men feel thai spending money for the conservation of natural resources—such as guard- (Uji Hie soil from erosion, and making fertile farmland proof against Hood—is a never-ending and useful work. XAVe have just had approval in the , IJtausc Appropriations Committee of I 1 ,'.; million dollars for construction of the Narrows Dam near Murfreesboro, about 50 miles north of Hope. This is a good thing. It will curb floods on the Little Missouri river. It will provide many miles of lake-shoreline recreation spots —and eventually it may lead lo water-generated electric "power. This is a small reproduction of what is going on in the Tennessee river valley. As you drive south over U. S. Highways 11 and 70, pasl Knoxvillo and Nashville, you arc » stunned by the gigantic earth-moving links which have been accomplished—and are still under way— in the name of Ihe Tennessee Valley Authority. But there's no mourning over money spent in this manner. Over in Tennessee men arc changing the face of Ihe earth—for the better. We rieed in Arkansas more of what is now going on in Tennessee. Let us never forget that -K * -K By JAMES THRASHER The Senate Has the Last Word Some of our senators seem to have taken a frightened atliludc toward Secretary of Slate Byrnes' revelation that Russia was secrclly promised Ihe KuriJc Islands and Ihc southern half of Sakhalin at the Yalta Conference a year ago. They are in a stow over Ihe pos- sibilily that we may have to take an international trusteeship in strategic Pacific islands, which we won from the Japs al great expenditure of blood and money, while Russia {•els complete control of a chain of islands which she never fought for, and as reward for only a few days' participation in the Japanese war. The United Press credits Senator Johnson of Colorado wilh having said, in effect, that it's too bad the deal for the Ruriles was kepi secret, but thai there Is nothing to do now but abide by it. Certainly the senatprs, jealous of their treaVy-makf rig'fights, "know that such an agreement is not irrevocable. The disposal of Japanese possessions is Ihc business of a formal peace treaty. And our agreement lo any trealy musl have the approval of the Scnale. One of Ihe sccrel agreements made at Yalta is already in effect. That is the promise thai Russia should have three votes in the United Nations Organization—a promise ferreted out by Ihe Washington staff of a New York newspaper after Mr. Roosevelt had said there were no secret political deals at Yalta. It was fulfilled, of eoursq, by granting the Ukrainian and Byelorussian S. S. R.'s the stalus of independent stales al San Francisco. Bul the matter of the Kurilcs is different and more important. Obviously Mr. Roosevelt could not have made a flat promise of them, because he had no power to do so. And since Mr. Truman had no part in it, the promise seems further weakened now that he is President. In any event, the Senate is Ihe final boss. There seems lo be no reason why the United States could not make an open deal at a peace conference for what she needs, in exchange, for Russian possession of the Kuriles. There is little danger of a trusteeship being forced upon us .since the United Nations Charter slates thai Ihe UNO will supervise and administer, under an international trusteeship system, "such territories as may be placed there- under, by subsequent individual agreements." $197,306 Traffic Fine Total Paid by Memphis in Year Memphis, Tenn., Feb. !) — (UP )—Traffic violators paid $197 30(5 in fines in Memmus last year, City Clerk John W.

WILSON Manila, Feb. 9 — (UP)—American defense attorneys for Lt. Gen. Masaharu Homma asWcd th« U.S. military court today ,'to ignore death sentence demands' and spare the Japanese general's life so he caii be a peacemaker The court's decision Von charges tluit Homma was responsible for the Bataan death march will be nnounced at 3 p. m. Monday (2 a. m. EST). Both prosecution and defense completed their closing pleas today. y Maj. John H. Skecn, .'cMef counsel for Homma, told the court, "should his life be taken,- the world will have lost a man •;who could do much towards continuation of the peace." Defense attorneys, Skecn added, wore firmly convinced of Homma's sincerity and inlcgrily, .-and were "proud to have represented him." The prosecution demanded that Homma be put to death because he was responsible for the horrible tragedies of the Bataan death march and other atrocities in the Philippines. "We hold that he is responsible in every way possible," Lt. Col. Frank H. Meek said. "He sat back and did nothing while the atrocities were being committed. The responsibility is nis and his alone." The defense plea was thai Momma was a well meaning and capable soldier who was Ihe viclim of Ihe Japanese army's inefficient supply organization and poor training methods. The death march was pictured as an extreme example of Japanese inefficiency, and not a case of brutal, systematic torture. First Lt. Robert Pclz, a defense attorney said Homma was within his rights in ordering the prisoners march out from Bataan, so long as it did not exceed 12 1-2 miles daily. He said Homma was saddled with an exceptional number of prisoners, had inadequate iiipplics and little transportation; "Homma was in a position where ic was damned if he did and damned if he didn't," Pel?, said. Meek counlcrcd for "Ihc prosocu- Lion with a statement tha Homma <new about conditions during Ihc death march and later in prison camps, but didn't care. "He was Ihe victorious com- Tiander of a victorious force lhal had subjugaled Ihe island," Meek said. "He has admillcd moral re- sponsibilily but we hold thai he is responsible in every way possible. "He could not but have heard the screams of the wounded and dying,, from jhis headquarters so close 16 the road, yet he told us that he heard nothing. "The defense maintains that the atrocities resulted from shortages of supplies. However, the Japs had water but the Filipino and American prisoners were nol given any on Ihe death march."

Slain Girl Will Be Buried Today Columbia, Mo., Feb. 9 — (UP) — Funeral services for Mary Lou Jenkins, 20-year-old viclim of a rape-slayer, were scheduled today in Columbia's First Presbyterian church, where she had sun in the choir. Meanwhile, municipal officials hinted that the FBI had been called in on the case, possibly to intercept the interstate flight of a suspect. 11 was learned lhal Columbia's Mayor Bruce J. Carl had asked the assistance of an "outside agency." The mayor refused to comment on any FBI action, however. Col. Hugh Waggoner, chief of the Missouri Stale Patrol and director of the search, came to Columbia lasl night from his Jefferson City headquarters giving rise to speculation that a lead had developed in the search for Marylou's slayer. o The brightest U.

Hal Boyle Bids Goodby to Orient; He Will Revisit the Battlefields of Europe By HAL £OYLE Hong Kong, Feb. 9 — (IP)— This is an rcvoir to the Orient, cradle of new liberty or womb,, of World War Three. Tomorrow morning I am leaving lacking in further examples o£ spectacular governmental changes. No country,' surely, ever had a more cynically depraved and op- potunistic political rule than England in the 18th century. Yet, 100 for Europe lo revisit baltlcfields of years late under Queen Victoria, the war just ended before return- Great Britaain probably had one of ing to America, where I hope the five cent hot dog is still a reality instead of a memory. Tonight I am trying to group to- geyier some coherent picture from the impressions I have gained during six-month tour of the Far East in which I managed to see al least briefly every country except New Zealand. And that—from what my friends out here tell me — may be the equivalent of admitting that I ate the shell and missed the oyster. It is foolish to think that you can gain a complete insight into half the world's problems in a half-year of travel, so I will make no claim of being an authority on what is cooking west of the international dateline. But on the other hand you can't spend that much time out here without getting some pretty solid ideas on the nature of what is stirring in this part of that slew- pot called the world. One feeling I leave with is that although she lost the war Japan sold with her own bitter blood and propaganda her slogan "Asia for the Asiatics." Asia is on the Hires-, hold of Ihc same great, belated industrial and political revolution which in a single generation raised Soviet Russia from bankrupt serfdom lo an equal rank with the world's leading powers. I listened lo many oldlimers oul here tell me "China or India hasn't the makings of a major power because their people have been too corrupt for centuries. They'll never change." and then I recall how I read as a boy how liberly and inefficiency cost the Russians any hope of military victory in World War One. Yet, in one lifetime, Stalin's followers rose from the military depths to Ihe heights. History is not -HOPE, ARKANSAS, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1946 Formby, Hunt, ex War Vets, Die in Wreck Edgar Fred Formby, J"V., 24, and Winfred K. Hunt, 23, decorated Pacific air war veterans, were instantly killed about midnight Friday night when their pickup Iruck crashed inlo a slalled lumber Iruck at Roman, wesl of Rod river on U. S. 67. Bolh Ihe veterans and the lumber truck were headed for Texarkana. Sgl. Herald PorlcrCield of the Arkansas Stale Police here said State Policemen Boyd and Tackell, who investigated the wreck, reported that a wheel had come off the truck, bul that flares had been placed on Ihc road according lo law. . Fog and rain made visibilily poor, however, and Ihe Hope boys crashed inlo Ihe slalled vehicle. They were badly mangled, and Ihe bodies had lo be cut loose from the wreckage. The bodies were brought lo Herndon - Cornelius Funeral Home here. Formby, a staff sergeant in the Army Air Corps, credited with shooting down several Japanese Zeros a.s tail-gunner and photographer on a E-17, was the son of Mr. and Mrs. E. F.

Hunt of Hope Route One. the most honest and individually selfless civil services ever enjoyed by any cmprie. So these nremature Cassandras who cry defeat lo Asia's ignorant but ye'arhing masses are ignoring pasl lessons. The, one sure law of life is change — and they forget 'it. The problem as I see it is lo persuade our Far Eastern brethren lo lake their new responsibilities calmly arid not to become in their fresh exuberance disciples of the outdated power politics and exploitation .which they themselves have long protested against. How hard it is lo be humble in viclory! How hard il is lor a butler who becomes the master to slay palsy-walsy with his former fellow servants. This is one of the chief problems facing the Chinbse, who by overreacting against the "white foreigner," in their new freedom may delay by generations their nation's sure march to world importance. They arc the people wno presently arc in a position to dominate southeast Asia, but many Europeans and Americans who have spent their lives in the Orient still hold thai the Japanese will eventually regain thai position through superior enterprise, honesty and aggressiveness. That remains to be seen. One inescapable feeling is that, if the United Nations Organization fails to function and Asia becomes a fencing ground for new British, American or Soviet Russian power blocs, such maneuvering will serve only as a prelude to another war Thai is Ihe concensus of talk in all countries in the Orient. I report U as a departing visitor for what interest it may have and because I have always found most people know what is going on in their backyards. Jas.

Dark Bread Program to Be Pushed By RUTH GMEINER Washington, Feb. 9 — (UP) — The government went ahead loday with its plans to put the nalion oh a "dark-bread" du.-t despile rising opposition from millers, bakers and some congressmen. Meanwhile, the sncciai House Food Committee deciced lo investigate the entire wheat situation. Chairman Stephence Pace, D., Ga.. said his committee would take up the wheat problem when it finishes hearings on butter and dairy shortages, possibly beginning the week of Feb. 18. Protest against the administration's program centered on President Truman's order lhal millers musl increase Ihe amount of flour they get from wheat by culling down on Ihc quality. Millers claimed that this would nol make more wheat available for shipment to the hungry peoples abroad. Bakers feared it might liave a permanent effect on American eating habits and reduce brd consumption indefinitely,. Nutritionists also clashed over the order. Some said the bread would be more healthful. Others claimed it might actually be harmful because of the higher bran content. Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson was unperturbed. "Eighty per cent flour is nol going to kill anybody and may help some people," he said. Anderson also denied that the milling industry had not been consulted before the order was drawn up. He said he had talked by long distance telephone with many milling representatives. Anderson admitlcd .that the new bread may be less appetizing bul he said lhal wasn't too bad because it might help to cut down on bread consumption, thereby saving even more wheat. That happened in World War I days of potato and barley flour bread. The Agriculture Department, meanwhile, took two new steps to help procure food for overseas shipment. It ordered federally inspected packers to set aside IG per cent of their weekly pork output and the weekly lard set-asides were increased from 2'A to 25 per cent. The pork and lard obtained will go toward meeting foreign commitments. Pace said members of the House Food Committee had been deluged with protests against the food conservation program. Hope Rolarians, at their weekly luncheon meeting , a t the Hotel Barlow on Friday, were addressed by Waller Verhalcn II of the Hope .Basket Company. Mr. Verhalcn . a recently accepted Rotarian, delivered an interesling and educl- lional talk about the basket company. Eslablished in 1911 on a small scale, Ihe company has grown into one °f Hope's largest industrial plants. Baskets are shipped from Hope to 40 slales and Mexico, and are used primarily for fruit, • vegetables and sea food shipments. Mr. Verhalcn staled thai Ihe company now employs approximately 225 people and uses aboul four million feet of timber per year Timber for the most part is obtained within an 80 mile radius o! Hope, but with the increasing scarcity of the right type of timber, the radius has on occasion been a.s -great as 400 miles. Guests of the club for the day wore: Rev. R. B. Moore R B Moore, Jr. and Syd McMalh of Hope; Claude Garner of Weatherford, Texas and Roy E. Bull of Little Rock. Basket Co, Ships Into 40 States New Bible Translation Due Monday New York, Feb. 9 —(/'I')— A new translation of the new testament, differing in form and content from the familiar King James version, has been completed by ,a committee of biblical scholars and will be published Monday. The committee was named by the international council of religious education with which the cduca tioanl boards of 40 of Ihe mapor Proleslant denominations of the United Stales and Canada are associated. Publication of Uie new translation, known as the revised .standard version, will be followed in about four years by a new translation of the old testament, upon which another section of the com- miUee is engaged. The revised standard version will be an authorized revision of the American standard Bible of 1901, which was a revision of the King James version, published in llill Translators said none of the changes ,iiv the new version af- leclc-d any major doctrine of the Chistum faith. It is in simple, familiary stvle which, they said, corresponded more closely to the vernacular Urcek in which Ihc new testament was written. Eliminated from the text of the sixth chapter of Matthew, and placed in a footnote, is the final verse of the Lord's Prayer, "for thine is the kingdom, and'the power and the glory, forever, amen." 11 was believed Ihis was don con the ground that the manuscript authority for it W as doubtful. Another change is that "Glory lo God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men," Luke 2:14. becomes "Glory lo God m the highest, and on earth peace among men wilh whom he is pleased." The older version is in a loolnote. The Rev. Dr. Luther A.

The president, in his annual message, urged • "a greater measure of local self-government" and at least national ticket votes for the vo'teless cilizens of Ihe Dislricl of Columbia. Don'I expecl anylhing more out of it than a renewed outburst of agilalion by Ihe poor, misgoverned residents of your national capital, who are the best civic example in the- country, today of; hope springy ing eternal. , The president, the district's committee chairman (our "mayors") in Congress, committee members, all publicly, declare for votes for district residents. Bolh parlies even write a plank to thai effecl into their platforms every four years. But the right hand of action never seems to get around to knowing what the left of promises is up to. There are complications in the whole business but one factor regarding greater "local self government" is simply that Ihe congressmen, most of whom live here a large part of their political lives, can't stand the idea of relinquishing Ibis liltle smidgen of power. Note: Unless Congress does something about it some of these years, there won't be any more citizens in the dislrict lo govern. The privately owned area of the district is shrinking. In the last 10 years, the government has purchased outright or otherwise taken over nearly 2,000,000 acres of district land. The voleless citizens now own only a lillle more lhan half Ihe D. C. The resl of il is all government buildings, parks, etc. Any day now look for an administration speech campaign to gel Ihe public behind Ihe $4.4 billion British loan, with addresses by Treasury Secretary Vinson, Commerce Secretary Wallace, Assist- anl Secretary of State Will Clayton and others explaining why Ihc loan is a world economic necessity. The administration isn't much afraid of opposition to the loan in Ihe Senate (although there's going to be some i but the House fight may be a bitter one. Administrative pulse takers on Capitol Hill are privately reporting a noticeable slowdown in heartbeat for Ihe British loan since congressmen came back from talking to the folks at home. That same visit with the voters has reportedly increased considerably the congressional heartbeat in favor of holding prices down. It's considered possible now that when the question of extending price controls comes up. Administrator Chester Bowies' OPA will receive quite a few less brickbats than il would have a couple of months ago. This doesn't mean smooth-sailing for OPA by any means. The insistence of business and merchants to government controls isn't any less. Their general argument is that the law of supply and demand will take care of prices without any interference from government. The housewives and salaried workers aren't so sure any more. What happened when the lid was taken off citrus fruit prices is being put forward as a strong argument for necessary extension of controls over the h.c.l.

ROPER Washington, Feb. 9 — (UP) — Southern Democratic senators put away their throat drops' today and chalked up a victory in their drawn-out filibuster against anti- discnminalion legislation. The Senate votes late today on a petition to limit debate and break the filibuster, bul FEPC backers conceded Ihey could not muster the necessary two-thirds majority. That" would kill the bill. Without a limit on debate its supporters could not hope to wear down the filibustering senators and bring the measure itself to a floor vote. Opponents of the measure have held the floor since Jan. 17 despite the face thai a majority of the Senate apparently would vote for FEPC if it could be brought up. The fight against ' the measure continued up to the last moment. Sen.

A joint army-navy report disclosed thai the Japanese launched 9,000 bomb-c a r r y i n g balloons against the Uniled States during the war, but only 900 of them ever reached North America. It was a slightly expensive undertaking, the report noted, for each paper balloon cost about 10.000 yen or $2,300 each. Japanese army officers, interrogated after V-J Day, said the balloon weapon was developed with the idea of avenging the Doolitlle raid on Tokyo. Large scale launching of Ihc balloons from the Japanese home isl- land of Honshu began in November 1944, the report stated, and the last balloons were released April 20, 1945. The prevailing winds blowing toward North America enabled some balloons to reach speeds of 100 miles per hour and more. The balloons carried both explosive and incendiary bombs, which By MERRIMAN SMITH Washington, Feb. 9 —(UP)— Responsible government sources said today lhal Chester Bowles had won his intra-administration fight to keep the lid on prices. Bowles, doughty price control chief, was expected .soon to take over the nation's top'economic post and the job of making price control work in the '-tpce-^t conflicting re- conversion problems. " Responsible sources said President Truman had decided that Bowles would take over the responsibilities of Reconversion Chief John W. Snyder although it was not certain whether he would assume his title. Final details still were to be worked out. These sources said Snyder would move lo another post in the government. Possibilities included a high diplomatic post or the job of national food expediter. There also was the less likely possibility that he would return as Federal Loan administrator. There was a further chance thai Economic Slabilization Director John C. Colletl was invovled. Bowles might be given his job. Mr. Truman then could transfer the bulk' of Snyder's economic responsibilities to that office. Under that setup, Bowles would be charged with full responsibility for the administration's wage-price program while Snyder would deal strictly with trimmed-down recon- version problems. The reported administration shuffle would turn Bowies' job as price control chief over to Paul A. Porter, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. Porter formerly worked under Bowles as rent control chief and would cooperate with him closely. Porter, informed of the reports, said they \yerc "very interesting" By FRANCIS M. LeMAY Washington, Feb. 9 —(/?>- ^ ltoi dent Truman's recommendations for the grealest house-building program in history won immediate and enthusiastic bi-partisan support today on Capitol Hill. Democrals and Republicans alike applauded Ihe objectives of the emergency campaign which has set its sights on the construction of 2,700,000 new homes in the next two years. Wilson S. Wyatt, the housing expediter and generalissimo of the projected campaign, said it could "move into high gear" by April 1 if Congress acts promptly and votes the necessary legislation. Only on ephase of the over-all' program failed lo click with Congressmen. That was the proposal" that the 40,000,000 existing dwellings be placed under price con- ' trol. Major opposition to this devel -led. • .. . ' Rep. Wolcott of Michigan, senior Republican on the House banking- committee? which handles housing legislation, said if the administration would drop its fight for price ceilings on old houses "I won't see why we can't put through the legislation the president asked for, by unanimous consent, within 24 hours." He proposed that the committee! recall an emergency housing bill it approvsd yesterday, lo rewrite it' along the lines asked by- the president, except for the old house price control feature. The committee deleted such control from the bill it approved. The National Association >of Real Estale boards also registered opposition- to the price control fea-' tures, but "heartily" endorsed the rest of the program. Other interested organizations withheld formal commet pending study. The "bold" housing program,' prepared by Wyatt on instructions about ¥16,000,000,000 in housing/ from Mr. Truman, contemplates' about $16,000,000,000 in housing'. construction during the next two years. The houses would be built principally by private contractors, ' with most of the dwellings selling for no more than $6,000 or renting for more than $50 a month. Announcing the vast undertaking last night, Mr. Truman called it" a i "veterans' emergency housing program," and Wyatt emphasized :" ' but that he had no comment. There was no confirmation at the White House or from Snyder or Bowles. Both men were summoned to Ihe While House yesterday but they refused lo discuss their conferences with the president. It was understood, however, that the transfer of economic authories within the administration was urged by influential Democratic leaders alarmed at the lagging re- conversion pace. The shift, if it does materialize, would be a tremendous victory for Lhe blunt, hard-hitting Bowles who las held out for a semi-rigid price inc. Snyder, on the other hand, las been more concerned with production than prices. There has been friction belween Bowles and Snyder over the administration's wage-price policies for some lime. Bul il took the nationwide steel strike lo bring it to a head. They disagreed sharply on how much price relief the sleel indus try would need to pay the -18 1-2 :cm hourly wage increase urged by Ihe president to end the walkout of 750,000 CIO steelworkers. The steel walkout, now three weeks old, has threatened to shut down the nation's reconversion industries completely and yesterday forced Mr. Truman lo cancel a scheduled vacation in Florida. Bowles originally favored a price increase of $2.50 a ton for slccl on the basis of an OPA survey of the industry's costs for the tasl three months of 1945. Snyder favored a much larger increase, ; '' Little Rock. Feb. 9 —t/P>— Plans necessary, lo get the mills have been drawn for a $750,000 ex- into production.

The program contemplates a vast increase in the production of labor force now working 'in residen- building materials, tripling of the v tial conslruclion, and wage and price rises where necessary to get results. Here's how Wyatt described it in detail: 1. Construction of 2,700,000 low and moderate cost homes must be strated by the end of next year. The targel for 1946: 1,200,000 homes started, of which 700,000 will be conventional houses; 250,000 permanent prefabricated houses; and 250,000 temporary units.
