™_, r , <»' V MOPE STAR, MOM, ARKANSAS I Housing at A. U. Should Gover3,500 Fayclteville. Feb. 16 — (,-V>— The! University of Arkansas needs per-' manerit facilities to accomodate ail enrollment of 3.500 students. Dr. A. M. Harding president, wrote a rscmber of the state legislature today. In reply to a letter from Rep. llussel! Turnipseed of Sebastian county suggesting a special session of the general assembly to solve linidersity housing and classrom problems. Dr. Harding said: "\Ve arc expecting an enrollment of between 3,500 and 4.000 students for the fall semester, but the university was constructed to accomo- date onlv 2,500 studens. We also are wondering how we arc going o pay additional instructors who will hay to be employed next fall. The university's budget is based on an enrollment of 2,000 students, and the enrollment already has far exceeded that figure. Dr. Harding said the concensus of educators was that enrollment woxild continue at peak levels for several years and then drop off some. He said, however, that enrollments at the nation's colleges were not expected to drop at ans time to the pre-war levels. The university president wrote Turnipseed that he did not believe the university's current situation could be blamed on the legislature. the governor or university officials. "It is a situation which could not have been foretold," he wrote. The Sebastian county representative had written Dr. Harding suggesting that Governor Laney Call a special session of the legislature to meet the university's needs. Failure to solve "the great difficulty incurred by veterans in obtaining housing facilities at the University of Arkansas," Turnipseed declared, was "a great blight upon the name of our great state." "Both Governor Laney and the legislature cari show their good faith by his calling a special session and by our appropriation of adequate funds to remedy the now existing housing shortage at the University," the representative continued in his letter, a copy of which was sent to the governor. Laney this week skcd trustees of the state's educational institutions to give him a clear report on their permanent expansion needs. He said the report would be presented to the 1947 legislature. Previously, Dr. Harding had indicated that the legislature would be asked to apropriate fund. 3 for a comprehensive building program at the university. o GOOD REASON Gainsville, Fla., Feb. 16 — |VP>— The University of Florida basketball team had a playing date with the Orlando Army Air Base here last night, but the soldier team didn't show up. .Tie Army explained the entire team — and a good one too —I service. i o _ _ | A , dozen different kinds of j Sharks occur in Canadian waters.

Wages— which started the strike as the main issue — dwindled lo secondary importance. GM has offered 18 1-2 cents an hour increase and the UAW demands 19 1-2. After they agree on wages, a successor clause—involving seniority of employes in plants shifted to different company divisions during tiic war and back to their old stains since V-J Day — and on promotions and transfers, the ne- golialors still must adopt a tedious formula on local plant issues. The four major points in the dispute include scores of minor differences. For instance, wages will involve not only increased rates bul overtime, equalized pay for equal work in different GM 'plants and classification of employes.

LE MAY Washington, Feb. 19 —(/I 3 )— The administration's drive to give OPA an unchallenged lease on life bumped into potential trouble today— a Republican plan to write a definite formula for junking ceilings. As a spokesman for the agency old the House Banking Committee that all controls except rents probable can he eliminated next year, Rep. Wolcoti i Mich), ranking committee Republican, said he favors a system that would provide for gradual but forced OPA liquidation. This could be arw..;:n-];shed, Wolcott told reporters, by an amendment requiring removal of price ceilings in each industry when it is tound that production has reached 75 per cent of normal output. He would base the industry-by- "iduslry decontrol on findings ,by OPA s own advisory committees, with any disputes to be settled by the emergency court of appeals. Wolcott said he might offer this and two other amendments to the aill before the committee to extend the price control law one year beyond its June 30 expiration date. Wolcott said it might be necessary too to have some adjustments in rent ceilings to encourage development of rental property. Administration supporters, however, are determined to push for passage of the extension bill without change. House Democratic Leader Mc- -orrnack (Mass) told reporters that if Congress got around to amending the measure opposition forces might be able to run in damaging restrictions. The Banking Committee meanwhile invited Chester Bowles to return to Capitol Hill for questioning on his statement yesterday that under President Truman's new wage- price policy the prices of food, shelter and clothing—the three essentials of living—can be held at about their present levels.

In Algiers, on one of my visits back from the war-front an incredible tiling happened: Every night promptly at 0:30 a single moth would rise out of my clothes and flutter away. I would just be there with a glass of can de memoirs and felling devilish as all get oul — and right at 6:30 out would pop the moth and wing ceiling ward. On the sixth straight night this had happened I put my book down at 6:25 and vigorously began beating my pants legs, my shirt, my necktie and my socks and stamped both feel vigorously. At 6:29 I sat clown again and watched the clock. As it hit 6:30 a bedraggled moth rose laboriously out of my garment and flew away.
