It seems thai science no longer has any use for a mouse after it is three weeks old. If you have followed that paragraph closely, you will understand why CWS. after a couple of clays of adding gray hairs and while mice, was about ready to try disposing of some of its poison gas and while mice at the same lime. Army red lape, however, doesn't permit such simplifications. The mice were surplus property. Surplus property must be disposed of according to laj'ws made by Congress, regardless of the fact that Congress failed to include a paragraph about property which becomes more surplus by the hour. A postwar hero who nol only didn'l gel a medal of merit, but whose name CWS can't even now remember, finally figured it all out. The overage mice were "separated"—but quickly. Working in 24-hour shifts, CWS laboratory ex- perls used up the eligible males that were rapidly nearing the "separation" age. The 'teen-agers were rushed by air to serve in the South Pacific, where some vital evper- iments in peacetime health improvements are being conducted. The rest were rushed off to civilian g o v e r n m e n I laboratories where, CWS was assured, Ihey will be given back Iheir pre-war jobs. CWS isn't positive thai everybody else is happy, but il is. It's facing each new peacetime dawn these days without a single surplus mouse on its inventory.

Capitol Talk Washington, Fob ,25 — As is usual wncn an economy urge moves politicians, it's the small items tliat arc lopped off — thus providing lhal much more for Iho big ones for which potent interests are plugging in high places. That's what happened to the flood control appropriations omitted from and embodied in the War Department Civil Functions: bill which recently passed the House and now awaits Senate attention. In the name of "economy" the Bureau of the Budget eliminated many projects recommended by the War Department Engineers. ' For example, four relatively inexpensive jobs thai would protect thousands of acres of productive farm lands in Conway county were stricken by the Budget Bureau, before Ihc bill ever reached the House Apropriations Committee. Merit Disregarded It would be interesting lo know the reason processes of the Budget olficials who blue - penciled these particular items. They bould nut possibly have been aw'are of the perennial threat to Conway county property, crops and livestock, and. yes, human lives, which the Arkansas river represents at this time. if there is a spot anywhere cry- ng for flood protection it is Conway county, but the House committee would not cvvn take a second, look after it followed the Budget I trend and trimmed some alloca-1 tions itself. So the bill was passed without the Conn-ay county levees I provided for, and without many' other small but perhaps just as vital appropriations. In these pTrticuia;- cases, Arkansas Congressmen Norrcll and Hays did all they could lo save the projects, but finally had lo go lo Senators McClcllan and Fulbrighl and ask them to do everything possible to induce the Senate Appropriations Committee to fill in the gaps left by the House when it passed the measure as it carnc from the House committee. Reading of the testimony given at the hearings before the House Appropriations Committee subcommittee last month might justify the cone usion that the atmosphere in which Ihe bill was considered, was too fraught wilh power-consciousness to enable the legislators really to work on the problem strictly Tuesday, February 26, 1046 Aide Corps, I wish to say that (here is invaluable service to be "ainccl from the experiences of the Aides in the future health program for Hcmpslead County.

ASK THE MAN WHO OWNS.ONE Voice of Opinion By S. Burton Heath t Something From Nothing In mid-UMf) Waller p. Heulher vice president of Ihe UAW-CIO submitted lo William II. Davis then Director of Economics Stabi liziilion. 11 memorandum on "Mow In raise wages without increasim prices." The idea was intriguing. Laboi which includes most of us, want' higher wages. Consumers, whicl me hides all of us, are oppressed by p high prices. If wanes can go u'r j/iiiHl prices .stay where they are everybody will be happy. Preside-ill Truman either conceived the same idea or borrowed il from Heulher or somebody elt He decided thai labor—organized, articulate. aggressive labor, al any rale—could be given n nice fat pay boost without raising the process o'f consumer goods. So we have had a wave of strikes that shut down 'some of our key industries, thereby closing or hamp- ..oring other industries when: there ,1wa.s no actual strike. Steel, aulu- mobiles, electrical j;oocls manufacturers have contended, that they could not possibly pay the scales demanded by the unions unless they were permitted to recoup part of the outlay by charging higher prices. The outcome was a change in the national wageprice policy. President Truman says lie i:; .still "holding the line." Chester Bowle.s. new Economic Stabilizer, says "There will be no relreal to a new line on -(Prices and rents." On second thought, Mr. Kowles says there will not "necessarily" be such a retreat leaving the inference th-il he may be having reserve positions prepared. Both describe the change as just a "bulge" in a limited sector. We hope they are right. We hope they Ivivo figured out some method by which they can persuade the unions that have been watching steel, automobile workers, electrical workers, that whal is sauce for •Alhc goose would, be poison for the •'gander. We hope they can demon- slralo that the same cold facts thai produced the "bulge" on sleel need nol yield a break-through in other lines. Bul -Hcuther's thesis, adopted by Ihe White House, hasn't worked nut too well thus far. He argued that huge wartime profits, plus increased man-hour productivity of labor, would absorb Ihc wage increases, i He forgot thai much wartime profit! necessarily will be consumed in ' , physical reconversion and in over- .'hcad during reconversion: he ignored thai man-hour productivity increased only because industry had shifted to war-scale production lhal now is ended. No business can long continue lo pay out. more than it takes in. Wages are paid out of receipts. Kven American genius can't make something from nothing.

By RAYMOND LAHR Washington, Feb. 27 —(UP) — ic Wage Stabilization Board promised today to establish general wage patterns for industries and labor areas swiftly to relieve employers of lime-consuming steps in settling labor disputes. Once the general patterns are set employers in those industries or areas may use wage increases, within limils sel by Ihc board, lo justify requests for higher prices without obtaining WSB approval. The WSB issued its first general pattern order yesterday, authorizing IG-cenl hourly increases for the "Big Five" of the meal packing industry and for oilier packing companies whose wage scales hislori- cally have followed Ihe pattern set by the Big Five. In effect, although it issued no general order, the board also set a pattern for the shipbuilding in- ouMry by approving a proposal ol the national shipbuilding wage con fcrcncc for IB-cent hourly raises ir the nation's shipyards. Continued on Page Two speakers found in broadcasting and recording stations (sometimes called monitor speakers), in the manufacture of home radio-phonograph combinations, and, to a certain extent, in public address systems— particularly those where high quality is desired. Mr. Klipsch developed his low- frequency speaker and reported it in technical literature in 1941, and reported the high frequency unit in the Journal of the Acoustical So ciety of America for January 194(i. Two patents have been issued and others are pending. Mr. Klipsch was born in Elkhart, Ind., was graduated from New Mexico A. Si M., and. took postgraduate work at Stanford university. He did geophysical exploration work in Houston, Texas., before going on active duty with the Army as a major, first at Aberdeen (Mdj Proving Ground, then at the Jefferson Proving Ground, Madison, Ind., and finally the Southwestern Proving Ground here, where he served four years. He is the author of several technical articles, published in Electronics magazines, the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, and other publications. For Mr. Klipsch his loudspeaker has been a labor of love during his spare time. He was trying, he said, lo develop a speaker that he himself liked—and it took his spare lime for six years. SyvellA.

As they sal there in Ihe semi- da] kness with weary bandy legs stretched stiffy in front of them, they could hear dance music floating irom the jerled windows of the Taj Mahal Hotel, towering in Terra Coll a splendor into the night like some Rajah's glittering palaee. The dance could be held only because of these three small nieii and others like than, forgotten in the iiighl outside llie circle of bright lighls. If one of these men had picked up his lathi slick and walked in- lo the liolel and asked fur a night's lodging, ii would have cost him e.\- uctl.v one month's pay — 20 rupees or about seven dollars. And there would lie "no room" for a man carrying a lathi.

GRIGG, JR., Paris, Feb. 27 —(UP)— France is sending new proposals to the United States and Great Britain today for a joint break in relations with the Franco regime of Spain by the three Allied nations. The latest French move in the aggressive campaign against Generalissimo Francisco Franco was revealed by Foreign Minister Georges Bidault in a speech to the conslitutent assembly's foreign affairs commission.

Bidault revealed the move during a long report to the foreign niiairs commission on Ihe UNO meeting. He will make a detailed statement to the commission on Spain next Wednesday. French railway union men at iendaye on the French side of the bridge, also hastened the break by preventing movement of merchandise from the Hendaye railyards .oward Spain.

He scheduled another session today. The new an IB-cent Ford contract provides hourly wage increase, compared to 18 1-2 cents in the con'- tract signed with Chrysler Corp a monih ago. The contract provides for punishment of production workers found guilty of participation in wildcat walkouts. John S. Bugas, Ford industrial relations director, described the provision as a "modified security" clause. Ford had demanded that financial liabilities be imposed on workers responsible for wildcat strikes. The penalty provided in the new contract is dismissal. The contract, which expires May J, 1947, also contains "a provision that continued failure of -an em- ploye to produce on the basis of established slandards will be cause ,for discipline unless failure is due to causes beyond his control."
