Fogc Six HOPE STAR, HOPS, ARKANSAS Adm. Hart Never Got Warning By 4. W. DAVIS Washington, Feb. 18 —(.I 1 )—Senator Hart CR-Conn) testified today that Washington never sent to him, as commander o£ the Asiatic fleet, any pre-war order on what to do USE 666 COLD PREPARATIONS Liquid. Tablets, Salve, Nose Drops Caution use only as directed if Japan attacked Britain and not the United States. He told the Senate-House committee investigating Pearl Harbor that he did inquire on December 6. 1941, whether there was any agreement "and got no reply," Hart also: 1. Denied he had ever told Naval Capt. L. F. Safford of definitely seeing a "winds code" message which Safford said had mysteriously vanished from the files: 2. Refused to place himself in a Dosition of saying whether Adm. Husband E. Klmmel took "roper i precautions at Pearl Harbor: 3. Disclosed that he started scouting Japanese forces by a'" even before getting instructions from Washington. Safford has said a secret mes-; sage from Tokyo came in three! days before the Pearl Harbor at-, tack, and provided Washington with 1 an advance warning of war. Sat-, ford also said that papers relating i to it had disappeared. Safford quoted Hart, former! commander in chief of the Asiatic I fleet, as having told him not to testify to something he could not j prove — destruction of records — because "I have seen your winds message.'

This strange dawa appeared on the campus of North Texas State College, Denton, Texas, and began his vigil by this drain just 23 days ago. The dawg belongs to nobody around the campus and isn't vicious. He allowed the photographer to take him for a walk, but when released returned immediately to this hole. At such times when sleep is necessary, he drops off right by the side of the hole anchprobably sleeps with one eye open. Students have been bringing him food and do not try to molest him.

Plea of guilty, held to Grand Jury; bond By JACK O'BRIEN New York — Jack Leonard again is a singer by trade, after almost five years of soldiering, and his return to the bright lights and an almost immediate success is a nice sort of success story, one which will give ex-soldiers, who had to quit their careers almost at their inception, a chance to say: "Well, there's a guy who came back fast, so maybe I can." For five years Jack had scant reason to think he would cornc back to the big time which he'd I abandoned early in 1941 when he Footwear favorites of the soda set , . , the new moccasin oxford with a woodsy look, the all-time favorite saddle shoe with a rubber sole . . . and the casual moccasin, young and right with socks, girlish, too!.

At that time he'd recognized as one of Ihc young radio, record and film singers. He had been with Tommy Dorscy's band, had made some records which became collectors' items — -Marie" and "Who" —ancl on the strength of a vast and swift popularity while a band vocalist, ntid left Dorscy a.nd gone on his own, and to extravagant icsults. He had a commercial radio program, was making records, had several Hollywood offers ancl his personal appearances at various movie palaces were climaxed by a record-busting date at the Paramount Tneater. Ho had a powcr- lul lot of plans, ancl the assurances of everyone in the music business who should know that he most definitely was destined for the top., The war had not yet descended formally on the United States when Jack was sent the familiar "Greeting" from the President and was summoned to his local board. There were lots of discouraging intangibles to keep a fellow worrying. Frank Sinatra, who had succeeded Jack with Dorsey's crew, had shot lo the top. Dick Haymes quit band vocalizing ancl became a movie star. Perry Como left orchestra jobs and became a minor I sensation. It seemed that every baritone swoon singer who had conic along alter Jack Leonard was •asking him while he sweated it out in khaixi. Well, Jack proved he was a good soldier .1 don't know a guy who ever talked with him who heard him gripe about what was hapcn- iny to swoon singers in civlian chess and money while ne took clown his $5-1 a month as a private, lie climaxed hi.s excellent military record by winning the bronze star. He was separated from his khaki on October (i. 1045 and started for Broadway with iriorc- than a minimum of puzzlement about whal was to happen to him. Jack found out. and very fast. Monte Proser, owner of the Copacabana, signed him to appear in h_is new mgnt club revue. New \orlc s former mayor. James J Walker, was the new president of a large recording firm, and he, too jumped after Jack Leonard's recording services Vaudeville dates are waiting. Movie offers have arrived. There's a radio commercial in tne offing and everywhere Jack i Leonard looks there are bobby .sox- jcrs waiting for his autograph, girl fans at the ringside each night sigh- ling and swooning, agcrnts with pens poised for him to sign contracts. Bing Crosby Had a Time in New York By JACK O'BRIAN New York — No 'one can say Bing Crosby clidn'l have one whale of a Rood time while he was here on his recent lengthy visit. He ma tinged to squeeze in quite a lot of work, such ns recordings and management conferences, but during the idle hours — well, Bing got the old red paint out and lathered it on like a happy Rembrandt at the annual geniuses' convention. The Groar.er loves this big town, ieven though his heart, soul, career, I wife and children, are headquarlor- locl mostly in Hollywood. While lie I was here lie touched every base. : Night after night he traveled the I town, sitting with Damon .Runyon in the Stork Club, watching 'the rhumba addicts in Kl Morocco jawing baseball talk with Mel Oil, I Horace Slnncham and that bulky ! encyclopedia of sports, Tool's |8hor. One morning there were some dozen or fifteen of us who abandoned Toots Shor's restaurant at •! a.m.. the legal hour at which Big Toots is permitted to heave all the stay-out-lates into cabs and drosh- kics 'and head for Reubens'. Lindy's or that new center of Cafeteria Society, the Marian Cafeteria on Sixth Avenue — beg podclon -Avenue of the Americas. This morning in mention the gang included Johnny Burke and •Jimmie van Heusen. who won last year's movie Oscar for their music i:i "Going My Way:" assorted insomniacs like myself. Jack Acller. the Broadway attorney, and a sprinkling of people who were just plain on their way to work, instead of just playing. • . Now I would not like to suggest that anyone was anything but just •nippy, and I will admit that 5 a.m. hardly is the time for a singing contest, especially between Toots Shor and Bing Crosby, for most people naturally would take -the stuffy attitude right off that' it would be no contest. However, 'the rules of this tuneless tilt, laid down by Toots himself, was for general noise, not .for any delicacv or quality of tone. T.'ots, a towering testimonial to iattl foods, climbed atop a table and started singing "Bess, Where is my Bess." which is a seldom- performed aria from the Gershwin opera "Porgy and Bess," which loots happens to know simply because his pal Frank Sinatra sings it in frequent public appearances. : Having "oaclecl Bing to engage in i this questionable neo-hog - calling I contest, Toots thereupon declared ! himself judge, jury and finally. j the winner. For sheer number of dcciblos, there could be little argu- I menl. for Tools shattered water j glasses 40 feet away and started | windows shaking in Radio City sev- i oral blocks distant.

In the recently-activated Uraga repatriation barracks, returned Japanese sailors came to attention on their sleeping mats, bowed and hen stood erect. "From where did you come.' no asked one. "From the Pacific islands." "Did you have enough lo cal?" "Yes." Hirohilo moved down Ihc bare wooden hall. Another sailor turned lo Ihc one who had spoken lo the Tnpcror and said angrily; "Why clidn'l you tell him the truth — that wo had only sweet poll ad tatoes."

The account was rclaled to Ihc Senate-House inquiry committee by George E. Elliott, one time buck private who detected the enemy plans on a radar sol almosl an hour before the bombs fell on the Pacific fleet base. "1 only wish il could have been followed through and saved a number of lives," Elliot told the com- mittce "You really did a good job in Ihe work you did there," Rep. Cooper (D-Tenn), vice chairman of Lhe committee, commented. Elliotl. 28, of Long Branch, N.J., left the army as a sergeant four months ago. On the morning of Ihe alack he ancl another private, Joseph Lockard, were alone at the Mobile radar slalion in the northernmost tip of Ihc island of Oahu. They had kept the set operating beyond the regular 7 a. m. closing hour so Lockard could teach Elliott radar plolling. Ellioll said that a 7:02 ;i. m. their radar scope picked up a large flight of planes 13G or 137 miles away three degrees casl of north. "I was excited at gelling such a large flighl at thai distance," El- lioll testified. He said he did not know their identity.- He said that within seven or eight minutes of plotting he tried to raise the aircraft warning center by a direct telephone but got o answer. Elliott then used another circuit ncl raised a private McDonald who aid there was no one around who yiicw what to do wilh Ihc infor- nalion, Elliott testified. He said e asked him to find someone. "Two or three minutes later," o said, a lieutenant called back nd talked to Lockard. He quoted .ockard as saying the lieutenant aid to "forget it." (The arriiy Pearl Harbor board as identified this lieutenant as Lermil A. Tyler, later promoted o lieutenant colonel.) Elliott said he and Lockard left he station about 7:4!i a. m. and hat he delivered his log of the liglil to LI. John Upson on his re- urn lo camp nine miles away.

Clipping Wings of Music Czar Petrillo Is Objective of New Drive in Congress By JAMES F. DONOVAN Washington, Feb. 20 —(UP)— The house turned its altenlion today to legislation that would clip he wings of music "Czar" James C. Petrillo in his dealings with the adio industry. It was slated to begin consideration before nightfall of a bill lo oullaw what its supporlers said were "extortionale and rackcleer- ng demands" on radio broadcasters by Petrillo and his American Federation of Musicians (AFL). The bill was introduced by Rep. "larcncc Lea, D., Calif., and was approved last month by his house intercstalc commerce commiltec. The measure would make it a criminal offense for any labor leader to compel or try to compel a broad- two brotherhood walked out of Chi cago negotiation meetings Whitney said that "a cooling-off period was only suggested" in the act undei certain circumstances Whitney announced that ballot received from 60 of 300 railroad, showed the trainmen voting 99 pe cenl for a slrike Voting by engin eers on several rialroads showec 100 per cenl approval, Johnsto said . The strike balloting was proci- pilalcd by the two brotherhoods' refusal to accepl the railroads' request lhal wage demands ancl oper- alional grievances be considered separately. At Chicago 18 other railroad unions agreed to divorce the Iwo issues and submit the en- lire case to arbitration. A strike by the trainmen and engineers would halt all traffic ex- ccpl troop and hospital trains on every important American rail- Chit wood'road. The two groups totalling 300,000 constitute only 15 per cent of all railroad employes, but they hold key positions. The two brotherhod presidents caster to: 1. Hire more employes than he needs or wants. . 2. Compensalc any labor union for ils failure lo hire unnceded em- ployes. 3. Pay an employe more than once for any services he has rendered. 4. Refrain from broadcasting a foreign or educational musical program unless a "stand-by" union orchestra is employed. 5. Refrain from broadcasting mechanical musical recordings with- out, paying "tribule" to a labor union. Violators would be liable to a fine of $1,000 and a year in prison. At one time or other, Petrillo has been accused in Congress of jusl such demands upon radio broadcasters. A similar — but vastly more mode 'air — measure has already passed Ihc Senate. If the Lea bil is approved — and chances are-it will — a conference between Senate r.d House members.will be necessary to iron out their differences Backers of the Lea bill hoped it would gain the support of the strong Republican-Southern Democratic Coalition that pushed the case strike-control measure to passage earlier this month. The bill does not mention Petrillo by name, but the Interstate Commerce Committee left no doubt at whom it was aiming. In a report on the measure, it charged that Petrillo's union had made unreasonable and unjustifiable demands upon the radio industry. If broadcasters acceded to these demands, it added, they would be forced to pay more than $20,000,000 a year for "peace against boycotts, strikes and threats." "The offenses committeed in the name of the American Federation By W. R. HIGGINBOTHAM London, Feb. 20 —(UP)— Conservative Harold McMillan told Com- nons during foreign affairs debate today that the Anglo-Soviet- Amcrican alliance is virtually if. lot formally "in abeyance." Relations between the great powers "are greatly — even alarmingly — strained," McMillan said. In wartime he was a diplomatic trouble-shooter for Winston Churchill's government. "It would be folly not to recognize that the Anglo-American-Russian alliance that held so firmly in spite of so many difficulties throughout the years of the war is virtually if not formally in abeyance," MacMillan told the House. He described the deterioration in relations as "dangerous, but .not fatal." '.'..: "New groupings of minor satellite nations around one or another of deputies on a grnr By MARVIN I..

Donovan said Rattray advised him he was having a now flag made to replace the one which the demonstrators hauled down from its place over the II. S. information office. Uniformed members of the Royal Indian Navy paraded through the streets of Bombay again today in demonstrations which an Indian leader said were intended as a protest against alleged racial and color discrimination in the naval service. One group of 30 or more marched through the principal thoroughfares chanting in unison, "clown, clown the Union Jack; up, up the Iri-color" — the flag of thi> all India Congress (.Nationalist) party.

City Water Requested for New Homes Basil Edwards, who built the Hempstead county courthouse, is preparing to erecl six or seven new residences in whal is to be known as Ihe Edwards Addition on the Spring Hill road, it was disclosed .last night at .the. city council meeting in the city hall. His plans were made known when he requested the council to extend the municipal water lines to the city limits on Ihe Spring Hill road, where he will make his own con- neclions. Action on the request was referred to the water & light plant committee. The Veterans of Foreign Wars appeared before the council with a request for a five-year permit to use the lop floor of the city owned Elks building as a post home. The council, expressing the belief it could not bind the city for longer than an alderman's term of office, granted permission to use the top floor for the year 1946. The cily police presented a re- quesl for the purchase of two-way radio equipment, their present one- way system being in poor shape and obsolete. Chief F. V.

W. (Son) Jones today announced his candidacy for the office of Sheriff and Collector of Hempstead county subject to the action of the Democratic party in the primaries this Summer. He is 33 years old, a native of Hempstead County, the son 'ol Mrs. Elmer S. Jones, and the late Elmer S. Jones, and a veteran of World War II. In 1933 he was graduated from Hope High School, and was a mem ber of the football team four years He attended Henderson State Teachers college one year. He has had ample experience as a peace officer, having been employed by the Hope Police De partment since 1938 with the ex ceplion of Ihe lime he spent in Ihe armed forces. He entered the Army July 17 1942. During Ihree years and foui months in service he spent 31 months overseas. He was honor ably discharged Novembers 13 1945, and returned to his work the Big Three have taken shape," MacMillan said. "Soviet diplomacy — for whatever reason — seems to be concentrating upon outward pressure in'the Mediterranean and in the Middle East against well recognized and established British interests." MacMillan spokf '; -om his background as a Br:'''sh oiiioial in the Mediterranean area during the war. He was minister president at Allied headquarters in North Africa and later British representative on the advisory council for Italy. He also was air secretary .in Churchill's "caretaker" government after the wartime coalition broke up. MacMilla charged that Soviet attacks in the United Kations Se,- curily Council were directed against "all the weak links in the chain of world security and peace." "We do not want this to be an age of open diplomacy and secret fear," he said. "We cannot be pro- Russian or anti-Russian. We must e pro-mankind." He approved the laborite government's stand on Iran, Greece and he Levant. He said it was essen- al to conclude quickly a formal eace treaty with Italy, since other- ise "Italy might become a pawn n a diplomatic game, to her own epartment and ours." Raising the question of relations .mong the ,big wmree, MacMillan aid: "Whether we like it or not, the « void. is. in..fact being divided into different; sphere's'-of--l-irifltfuKee;. De-. ay will lead up to the abyss," MacMillan asked whether Russia ivas moved by a desire to "dpmi- lale ,ivqe world" or whether she was carrying on a "form of insurance and not expansion." He called for settlement of dif- ferenes among the Big Three by direct negotiations "something like the old Churchill-Roosevelt - Stalin association." o , Indian Rope Trick Is Just a Legen^, Boyle Frnds in India; But Beggary Is Everywhere (.(ii'/.ed particularly in cunnoi, lion with a note written by Vii ginia Ballard Flores, 18, in jail on a child-stealing charge, that referred to him and to the kidnap- ing.

By HAL BOYLE New Delhi, Fob 20 —(/!V You don't have to seek entertainment in India. It comes to your door. Particularly is this true in Bombay, where every hotel window opening on the street is a box seat to a series of centuries old Indian vaudeville acts in which the animals usually do all the work and the fakirs collect al Itlic rupees. Ho far nobody lias come around who can do the Indian rope trick, and I haven't met anyone out here who has ver seen it performed. Il is jusl a legend — like Santa Glaus ancl Paul Bunyan and the five-cent beer. One of the dreariest acts consists of a team made up of a small boy who sings "Pistol Packin' Mamma" and an old woman who plunks an accompaniment on battered guitar.

Cardinals to Get Insignia at Vatican Vatican City, Feb. 20 — (IP) — Twenty-nine new princes of the Roman Catholic Church will receive their first insignia of office froni Pope Pius XII today, after which the pontif is expected to broadcast a major pronouncement on church policy in world affairs. Customarily, after placing the square, thre'e-ridged scalet biretta upon the head of each new ca- dinal, the pope merely would eulogize the virtues of the newly-elected members of the sacred college However, Vatican attaches said he was so concerned with the state of the post-war world that he intended to use the occasion for a broader purpose. The pontiff is expected to speak from the papal throne in the hall of benedictions. His address, scheduled for 5:30 p. m. (10:30 a. m. CST), will be in response to Gregory Peter Cardinal Agagianian, patriarch of Cilicia in Armenia and dean of the new cardinals, who will express gratitude for their elevation to the purple. Normally, each of the newly- elevated princes of the church would speak, but because of the size of the group. Ihe Vatican do- cided the dean would speak for all. Three of the 32 new cardinals created in Monday's precedent-breaking consKsio'-.v arc ill and unable to attend today's ceremony.

Their rank as "princes oC the church" gives them status equal to royal princes and gives them precedence over prime ministers and heads of governments, but not over chiefs of state such as monarchs and heads of republics. Since a cardinal cannot wear cardinal's robes unless he also has a symbol of his office — cither the biretta, the ring or the cardinal's hat — the new princes of the church attended today's ceremonies in black bishops' frocks. They will receive their red hats tomorrow, after receiving the ring and bietta today.
