It seemed as though golf had returned to the pre-war days when those three formed a combination other tournament players .always had the task of cracking. All three shot three-undcr-par G9's yesterday, a figure which only Clayton Heafner of Charlote, N.C., has equalled in the present tournament held on the 6608-yard City Park course.

Feb. 15 — (UP) — Hold-the-line Chester Bowles, the government's foremost inflation fighter, won new power today and a bigger job as economic stabilization director. , The OPA chief had to let the "line" bend in order to do it. He agreed to a policy of more liberal price increases than he previously had favored to offset wage raises. But he got the stabilization position, in which he will have control over both wages and 'prices in carrying out President Trman's new wage-price policy. From that command post he will now fight a new campaign to hold the some- 'what inflationary line to which he has retreated. Mr. Truman announced that Bowles would succeed to the .stabilization post in which Judge John i C. Collet has been having an un- c . . i e i ( na PPy time trying to reconcile con- tSrare tor bale jfUcting pressures. Collet will return to the federal bench in Missouri. Under Bowles, in charge of OPA, will be Paul A. Porter, another ad- vocawe of a firm hold-the- line policy. Porter recently has quarters, had a two-stroke lead at 140 with the tournament half over. Sam Byrd of Detroit, tied with Hogan for a first-round lead at 71, took 7(i strokes yesterday and fell back to 147. Nelson, of Toledo, O., had been in a third-place tie with four others at 73 before yesterday's effort which boosted him to 142. Snead, from Hot Springs. Va.. and Heafner added their 69's to 74's of the previous day, and shared the 143 spot with Jim Ferrier of Chicago, Australian champion, who put a 70 on top of his opening 73. The field was cut today to the 64 players with totals of 158 or better. Among those following the leaders at 146 was Dick Metz of Arkansas City, Kans. •o- potches credited to it or not otherwise credited In this paper and also Ihe local lews published herein.

Also under Bowles, on the wage side of the picture, will be the wage stabilization board. W. W. Wirtz will continue to head it. Bowies' new office as stabilization director falls under the technical jurisdiction of John W. Snyder. the reconversion director. Their exact relationship is still to- be defined by the president. It was plain, however, that Bowles had been assured of a substantially free hand in administering the new wage-price policv or .he would not have taken the "job. j Conflict between Bowles and Snyder was at the root of much of the turmoil in which the administration labored for.' two weeks o bn'ng forth the new policy. More | than a week afo responsible i sources picked Bowles as the winner in his fight for more power. The wrangling continued, however, and at times his supporters thought there was a 50-50 chance that he might give up after all and ask the president to accept his resignation. Bowles lost in the sense lhat he conceded that a more liberal policy of price increases was now necessary o make up for the wage increases sanctioned by the administration. But he won a consolidate new position from which to try to hold the new line. Bowles is a lean, 45-year-old for| mer New York advertising execu- Itive with liberal views. He ran Ihe •OPA for a little more lhan two years on the thesis that a vast majority of consumers and business men are honest and that OPA should realize it. But he hit hare at the minority that operated black markets and connived at ration Pearl Harbor Probe Given Extension Washington* Feb. 15 — (ff>)— Without dissent, the Senate and House today adopted a resolution extending the deadline for ending the Pearl Harbor investigation to June The House acted without discussion a few minutes after receiving the resolution from the Senate. Senator Barkelv tD-Ky) told the Senate it was "the wish, hope and purpose" of the Senate-House inquiry committe not to ask any further extension of time. Previous- y Congress had fixed today as the leadline. The Democratic leader said every effort" was being made to end the hearings next Wednesday night. But Senator Brewster (R-Me) noted that some additional witnesses, not now scheduled, might lave to be called. Barkely agreed hat members would not be presented from seeking additional estimony, particularly from former Secretary of State Hull. Barkely said it was possible that iull and former Secretary of War Stimson, both of whom have been 11, might be questioned in their iomes if they are unable to ap- ear. Brewster said the committee might want to go into the situation 'n the Philippines on Dec. 7, 1941. In response to a question by Senator Langer (R-ND), Barkely said more money will have to be requested beyond the $25,000 expense originally approved by Congress. Some members have estimated unofficially that the cost of printing the voluminous record may reach $100,000. The inquiry, which began Nov. .5, was enlivened by a wordy row today after Rep. Keefe (R-Wish) asserted thai Col. R. S. Bralon had 'sworn to a falsehood.' o- Avc.; Detroit, Mich., 2842 W.

Oklahoma City, Feb. 10 —(/I 1 )— Scarred by a stunning defeat at the cleft shooting hands oC Oklahoma Aggies last night, the University of Arkansas will seek to oven its two-game basketball series with the Cowboys here tonight. The Aggies put on a stellar offensive and defensive exhibition as they romped over the Porkers 53-2!) at StillwakT in the first game. Kun-and shoot shoot Arkansas battled the Aggies to a 10-10 knot with 12 minutes gone in the game but nfler that the Porkers were never in the game Arkansas led five times during those 12 minutes. The heralded duel between two O iiint centers, the Aggies, 7-foot Hob Kuriaiid. and 6-10 George Kok, failed to develop as the Arkansas bean pule was held top two field goals and two tree throws during the entire game. Meanwhile, Kurlancl played one of his bust games of the season — snatching both offensive and defensive rcboiuids with the greatest of east, and' leading the scoring with M points. Earl Wheeler, whose arching shots kept Arkansas from being slopped without a field goal in the .second half .topped the Porkers' scoring with eight points. The victory gives the Aggies a one-game margin over the Porkers hi their 17-gamc series which dates back to 1925.

It would be interesting to observe again, in this case, how valid is the estimate of a great man's contemporaries, and how durable are a man's deeds as com- pared with his words. If Washington's lame and memory hnvo dimmed somewhat with Hie passing years, it may bo cine lo two factors: He was a doer rather than a writer or speaker; and lie still suffers in the public mind from a sort of hangover of saint- lincss, the result of contemporary ijV.'Y". adulation which hardly pel-milled ' him to be presented as human.

The courl ruled that amendments or revisions to previously issued transportation orders could not bo made until public hearings ivero conducted on the proposed imendmcnls or revisions. Construing 'the. state's public carrier act (No. 367) of 1941, the Supreme Courl reversed Pulaski circuit court, which had sustained llic old State Corporation Commission, now the Public Service Commission, in ordering Henry Lienhart, doing business as the Houston Bigclow bus lines, not to pick up passengers al Roland, Joseph 1.

IB —(UPi— The Dominion government cancelled the production of all Canadian supplies for Russia today.

The cancellation reportedly was the result of the failure of Canada and Russia to agree on credit terms, but il was pointed out lhal Canadian aulhori- lies have been aware for some monlhs of Ihe spy ring's aclivi- ties and it was believed thfet this was a factor in halting the production of goods for the So- .viets.

RYAN Vaican City, Feb. 18 — UP) — Thirty - two eminent prelates, among them four Americans, were elevated lo the college of cardinals today with churchly pomp and ceremony. Formally, Pope Pius XII announced at a secret consistory of the college, attended by 28 of the 37 existing members, the creation of the 32 new princes of the Roman Catholic church. All but three of the 32 were in Rome, and papal emissaries delivered lo them immediately Ihcir biglicti, or formal notifications. With this notification the designcos formally became cardinals. The new American cardinals, making up with Dennis Cardinal Dougherty of Philadelphia the five Americans in the 09-cardinal col- lego, are: John Cardinal Glcnnon of St. Louis, dean of the group; Edward Cardinal Mooncy of Detroit; Samuel Cardinal Strilch of Chicago; Francis Cardinal Scllinan of New York. The 32 new cardinals came from 19 countries in six continents, and Pope Pius told the consistory: "The church xxx does nol belong Continued on Page Two information was now available.

He said in his ".veckly radio (ABC) broadcasl thai the incident had brought a "showdown" in U. S.-Sovict relations and convinced many officials lhal "we cannot go on appeasing Russia." (In London, L. J. Sollcy, Labor member of Parliament, warned thai Ihe Canadian roundup of spies endangered scientific thought and constituted "anti-Soviel propaganda." Olhcrs speaking al a conference on science and welfare declared lhat a factor in the Canadian situation was failure lo share scientific knowledge on a worldwide basis.)

Testimony of witnesses in the currcnl hearings on alomic energy before the special Senate atomic energy committee. In these hearings, army sources say, witnesses cannot discuss alomic subjects or argue their own views without inadvdrtenlly releasing valuable information.

This allegation drew heated dc nials from committee sources They pointed out that witnessc have repeatedly been warned not to divulge confidential information in public hearings. One source, pointing lo voluminous printed testimony, declared that no atomic knowledge hitherto regarded as confidential has been made public. Committee members, he said, have carefully withheld questions thai niight divulge valuable technical information for private committee sessions. Since V-J day, army sources say, the principle of "compartmcntali- zation" — no one person knowing all the alomic bomb secrols —has been breaking down .Provisions of the espionage act are inadequate to check the flow of information, they say. (Some commillee members and scientists apoaring before the group have urged a breakdown of "cornpartiincntalizalion" as a slop forward in peace time application of atomic energy.) Authorities declined to specify other sources of leaks, explaining that such action merely would point attention to the leaks and further abridge security . During the war, il was maintained, there was "absolutely no talking" about alomic matters. One officer said the situation now was "similar to Iwo boys discussing an automobile —Ihey never slop."
