The bill has been praised and attacked inside and outside Congress But perhaps the strangest attack came from Rep. Clare" E. Hoffman. Michigan Republican, He attacked the bill for something which he himself put into the bill. As it stands, the bill has portions Which do n.ot read grammatically. And some of its sponsors can't s;iv precisely what interpretation may be placed on certain sections. Because they ate not explicitly stated, some of the bill's implications can be very far-reachini.' a:id very tough on labor. .The Senate is certain to change the bill, if it ever consider; it at all, because of th eiack of precise- HOPE STAft, HOPE, ARKANSAS Ben Hogan Cops Texas Open Tourney i San Antonio.

He 1 sat off to the side, had his sandwich and then — after he had finished eating — called for a menu The menu came as ordered and immediately was put to work as a sketch plaid. The blank back had a surtace whereupon some extremely amusing caricatures were lelt lying about when this mysterious figure left. It came to be a nightly whispered conjee-lure among the rc<ni- fars.

So-called "fifth freedom" traffic is authorized. This will allow an airliner en route between the two countries to pick up passengers and traffic bound for a third country, and will allow economic operation of the long-line services with which both Britain and Ihe United vlalcs arc planning the world. lo • encircle A second agreement was reached opening to commercial traffic many of the military air bases . . v "t-t" n'n>_ t»n\.i lining ui imj iniiuury air oases history lo a war of 80 years before, | buill by the United Stales gover and to the words and example of a man of acknowledged greatness who led an embattled nation to vic- lory. This year the analogy no longer holds good. We are in the midst of what, 80 years ago, was called reconstruction. Had Lincoln lived through that period of reconstruction, this nation's history would be a different and undoubtedly a happier one. But the task of returning the country to the ways and practices of peace was entrusted to mcnl on territory leased from the British in Newfoundland, Bermuda and Caribbean areas. U. S. commercial planes will receive "most favored nation" treatment at these bases. The United States will continue to maintain such fields, and "no other civil air carrier, including civil air carriers of the Unilcd Kingdom," will be granted any more favorable treatment than the Unilcd States . The bases originally were leased the war president's successor, as it w ' lh the understanding they would is today. Lincoln died at the dawn I not bc used by commercial planes, of peace; Roosevelt, almost on lhe! t!lc agreement said, but there are eve of viclorv. now "obvious advanlasms" in niinn. 7 s eve of victory. It would be comforting and in- slrucling lo know how Abraham Lincoln would have mcl problems similar to those which the Unilcd States faces now. How would he have helped to answer the question of whether "We shall nobly save or meanly lose tho last, best hope of earth" through a closer organization of the world's nations? How might he have aided in solving our industrial disputes quickly and fairly? It Is idle to speculate. But it is j, also excusable to turn lo some of Lincoln's thoughts on labor and with present circum- mind. The particular read them stances in _. .... ,_ _ ' thoughts quoted here were contained in some informal remarks which he made to a delegation of New York working men in March of 1804. They arc not a formal economic and social philosophy. They may not be geared to today's thinking but they make interesting reading, nevertheless. "Strongest bond of human sym- '4. pathy, outside of the family relations," Lincoln said, "should be one uniting all working people, of all nations, and tongues, and kin- dreds." (That would get him called a Communist today.) "Nor should this lead to a war upon properly or Ihe owners of property. Property is the fruit ol labor; property is desirable; is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry <ji and enterprise." (That would gel him called a conservative, or \voi se.) "Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring lhat his own should be safe from violence when built," (That might be called good sense and sound advice which is probably more apt today than il was in 180-1.) * Philadelphia Traffic Is Strike-Bound Philadelphia, Feb. 12 — (UP) — The nation's third largest city remained paralyzed in the throes of a transit strike today with both the Philadelphia Transportation Co. , , and the transport workers union, ( (CIOi, slicking steadfastly to their guns in the two day old walkout. Negotiations to end the strike of U,l). r )5 operating and maintenance employes of the PTC collapsed yesterday after a series of conferences between Howard T. Colvin, assistant national conciliation director, and the company and the union. Colvin, however, was confident lhat lie had evolved a plan that would break he strike that has inconvenienced approximately 3,000,000 people in the Philadelphia area. He declined lo say what his plan 'was. The strike began at 12:01 a.m. Monday after a last minute effort by Colvin, Douglas L.

At the same lime, consumers gol another foretaslc of the future food picture in a report showing that January milk production sagged to a new five-year low, the result of a sharp decrease in the number of dairy cattle. . The new government order diverting grains from livestock feed to human consumption was expected lo curtail milk production even more in coming months. The mergency order for darker flour was officially decreed by President Truman only for Ihe firsl half of 1946 or unlil Iho U. S. can meet its wheat committments lo hungry ,nations. Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P, Anderson told millers that they probably could return to the manufacture of white flour by Aug. 1. Nevertheless, the possibility of a small wheat crop next summer and still high foreign demands may force reloiuion of the dark flour order beyond thai date. The millint; induslry already is con vinccd thai the order will be ex tended. The combined food board, meanwhile, is revising iis allocation ol the international wheat supply. With demands for above supply, allocations to some countries will have lo cut to keep other nations from going hungry.

Government sources indicated lhat "misunderstanding" among some officials over the application of the sleel price bosl was a faclor in Ihe delay. The OPA has recommended lhal Ihe increase be limiled lo carbon sleel, which rep- resenls about 75 per cent of the production of the basic sleel industry. "Basic steel" employes about long delays in lifting OPA's price controls. many of It made public, in approving a deliciency appropriation bill for OPA, this revised summary and time-table submitted by OPA Boss Chester Bowles: 45 Veterans Are Placed in Jobs During January More than 45 job placements tor Veterans of World War II by meanwhile adding 17 to ils original list. Food — Suspension of controls on milk, cream, ice cream and manufactured dairy products not likely until Ihe spring of 1947; a lew varieties of fish may be freed Irom controls by May,' 1946; no suspension of controls on processed mills and vegetables likely until alter January 1, 1947; controls on major meat items probably will be retained until July, 1947. (Controls on most of these items were scheduled to have been lifted around April 1, 194C.I Consumer good —• No suspension ol textile or apparel items appears probable for the spring of 1947 'Kailier, OPA had told the com- 450,000 of the 750,000 strking sleel workers. One informed source suggesled the steel price plan may follow Ihis pattern: The general price increase would be limited to carbon steel but the forthcoming changes in wage-price policy would offer an avenue of relief to olher producers suffering hardship. Those producers could include manufacturers of fabricated products and basic steel companies whose outpul of special sleels was relatively high in proportion to carbon steel. Representatives of small steel fabricating plants have complained that settlement of the strike on he basis of both a price and .\yage increase would put them in a squeeze. They would have to pay higher prices for material bought from basic steel companies, they said, and then meel Ihe nation's wage demands. The union's negotiations in re- cenl weeks have been conducted principally with Ihe Uniled Slales Sleel Corp., which usually s°ts the wage pattern for the industry. There was litllc doubl that other basic steel companies would fall in line with any seltlement of Ihe U.S. Sleel case. There has been no positive indication that the industry would agree to President Truman's proposal for an 18 1-2-cent hourly wage increase on the basis of the contemplated price adjustment. However, officials were confident a settlement would follow. U. S. Steel and the union have completed preliminary discussions jul efforts to write a final agrce- rienl have awaited the price order. It was indicated thai changes in the wage-price policy would not be completed until late this week. Be- oro they are made public Mr. Trunan is expected to announce the elevation of Price Administrator Chester Bowles to be director of economic stabilization, replacing John C. Collel. Paul Porter, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, is slated to replace Bowles. Secretary of Slate James F. Byrnes, former stabilization and later war mobilization director, was credited by informed sources with suggesting the reshuffling to resolve a conflicl between Bowles and Reconversion Director John W. Snyder over Ihc steel case. Explaining the board's oper- alions, Wallander said, "we make recommendations to the mayor and he issues the edicts either by himself or through Commissioner (Ernest L. Stebbins) of the health department." The restrictions gave hundred of thousands of residents a forced holiday. Persons enlering the city were told by police thai all slores and offices were closed. The crippled city looked hopefully to a meeting today of tugboat operators to consider further a proposal to arbitrate the dispute. Operators failed to reach a decision early today on whether to adopt this procedure. The 3,500 members of the AFL international longshoremen's association's United Marine Division have agreed to arbitration.

KLEIN Washington, Feb. 12 — (UP) — More than 40,000 cases of wartime tax evasion, many of them involving black market ope>-slors, are under investigalion or awaiting invesligation by the treasury, it was revealed today. And these "only scratched the surface" of such vi9lations. The disclosure was made by the House Appropriations Committee as it approved an outlay of $8 870,137 for fixed and continuing expenses of the treasury and post office departments in the 1947 fiscal year, beginning this July. The total included $5,000,000,000 for interest payments on the huge public debt. In addition, the committtee approved estimated disbursements of $2,840,254,870 by the treasury from various trust funds administered by the department but not involving its funds, including the bid- age and survivors insurance trust funds. Treasury officials told a House Appropriations subcommittee that the drive on black market operators and other tax evaders .which began las March, should recover better than $1,500,000,000 in unpaid revenues by the end of June, 1947. chef of the n'ternai """' new America. ores are scarce in North disaster control board consisting 01 22 city department heads now was "the governing body of the city as much as if we were in military circumstances and we were being governed by martial law."

Panhandling Cows, Protected by Hindu Superstition, Roam India's City Streets By HAL BOYLE Calcutta, Feb. 12 — (.4'i— Panhandling cows lead an easier life than beggar men in teeming India Capitalizing on the Hindu religion, which regards the cow as the most sacred of animals, bovine wanderers foam lazily through the streets leading the life of Riley. Nobody takes a stick to them, and these pasture fugitives wander around al their leisure, lakiim in sights and cropping stray grass in the parks. When the browsing proves unprofitable some of these four- legged hoboes stroll around to the nearest Hindu restaurant and stand patiently at the door until the proprietor comes out and feeds water buffalo, which isn't protected. These sacred cows are only one of the many sights that make a casual visitor seeing India for the first time think back to the pictorial geographies of his childhood, and he has that same sense of magic strangeness as when he ago turned his schoolboy plod on to the dan.
