S, Champs By CARL BELL Little Rock, Feb. 26 —Iff}— The Arkansas Athletic Association is investigating the eligibility of Little Rock's outstanding basketball center, Chester Owen, the result of which might — within the realm of P9ssibility — be a move to disqualify the* Tilers as Arkansas high school conference champions. The facts of the case are these: The Fort Smith Giants of the Western Association, a professional baseball club, announced that Owen, former Little Rock American Legion junior player, had signed a' contract with them last September for the 1946 season. { An unidentified school,, authority agKed AAA President Jariies .Abra- book pertaining AAU rules st -„.- of Lonoke to rule oh-whether O£>en;was eligible to play with LIttle--R6ck high school during the 1 current season. Abraham said he was investigating the case. Whether Owen is declared ineligible and the Tigers forced to forfeit games they have won aparent- ly depends upon how far the AAA, which has jurisdiction over the Big 16, will interpret and enforce a technicality. One of the Arkansas Athletic Association's eligibility stipulations is that an athlete, in order to participate in high school athletics, "must be an amateur as defined in the rules of the latest AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) hand- ng to amateurism." state that an athlete must be considered a professional if he has received pay for his services, has been given a "public tryout" or has solicited "employment by a professional team." Thus, the eligibility status of the Tiger star would depend upon yvhether the AAA considered signing a contract as soliciting em- . loyment and was willing to enforce the point. Fort Smith baseball club officials disclosed that Owen had not received money from the Giants and had not been given a public tryout. Could Adam Eat the Apple with Stomach Ulcer Pains?

Accuse Allies Tried to Freeze Out Russia Washington, Feb. 25 —(&}— A former military government official contended today that an attempt is being made to freeze Russia out of a search for German assets in such countries as Spain and Argentina. The contention was voiced to the Senate war mobilization subcommittee by Russell A. Nixon, former acting director of the division of investigation of cartels and external assets, office of military government in Germany. Nixon told senators in testimony made public today: "I charge elements in both the U. S.. British and French foreign offices with consciously maneuvering to prevent all tour (occupying! powers from being involved in the to the sparse growth on Bikini search for external assets in the neutral countries because that are being administered. He clared: d- 1. The war industry potential of I. G. Farbcn, giant German chemical trust, has not been eliminated , as it was ordered to be. 2. No decartelization law been promulgated. has 3. The denazification program is incomplete. Nixon told the senators lhat "our drive to divest Germany of its external wealth has bogged down and is profoundly jeopardized." "The U. S. State Department, together with the British and French foreign offices," he asserted, "have maneuvered to split the quadripartite German external property commission into eastern and western units' and are proceeding to crystallize this split among the four powers in regard to the external assets problem."

Uncle Sam is completely fed up with feeding pigeons. The sad story of the government ancl its birdlife was told today by the War Assets Corporation. H seems that last April the army decided to sell 211,000 homing pigeons it no longer needed. So a disposal agency went to work. In the nine months since then it has sold 1,501 pair of pigeons tor $6.055. This may seem like a neat profit, but hold on for a minute.

Herzog told the Senate Labor Committee that the House approved measure would stir up 'new troubles between labor and management. It would, he said, drivel "bitter. . . desperate" men to leave j their jobs. He said the measure enroaehed on the authority of the NLRB and was restrictive legislation aimed directly and solely at workers. Criticizing the proposed penalties bright declared. "We cannot assume thai we represent all of the moral leadership in the world, but we must speak out for the princi- j pics for which we aland."

Senator Russell (D-Ga) s:iid he subscribed lo ihe general outline Vandenberg In id down and hoped the president and secretary of activity and influence has been bloodily reflected in recent rioting — has decided thai Indian liberty can only be achieved by immediate and sustained violent action directed against the British. This faction advocates open revolution, but no leader has risen to publicly proclaim incendiary aims or to bulge the call that might plunge all India into internal conflict in one mighty wave of long- suppressed hale and hysteria. The other young man — both are orthodox high caste Hindus — was equally positive that violence would u -ing nothing but disaster to Ina .

In New Delhi I had long talks with two young Indians who typified these divergent views. Both were vegetarians and equally pa- Iriolic — as all young men in India are ardently patriotic and nationalistic.

"Why should we wait for our liberty to be given lo us as a foreign gut? Il is our right — and we want it now. We don't have any promises — and thai is all that Gandhi's nonresistance has brought us.

"I would become a Moslem myself to keep peace," he said. "Many Hindus have done that." He had one rather singular idea of how the Hindus might circumvent the Moslems, who are outnumbered three to one and what to set up their own country —- Pakistan. "If enough of us Hindus became Moslems," he said seriously, "we could outvote the old Moslems and keep India one nation." That solution of India's religions problems is as remote as free beer in Kansas. Just to keep the record straight I asked one young Britisher who had served for six years in the Indian army how he ielt about the independence issue. "They can have the whole bloody country back in just two weeks," he said. "That's when I leave for England. They shout al us now to .ve revolt 'roe."

Every indication is that the wage issue will be simple but substantial and lhat a drawn out controversy may result for these reasons: 1. In the coal industry, labor eosis are a major factor. and wage increases in the past have ben tacked onto the cost of each Ion of coal. 2. Mounting coal prices add to industry fears of indoors heating iuehs, especially natural gas. E/.ra Van Horn, chairman of the bituminous coal negotiating .con lerencc and operators representative, said Lewis had nol notified him as yet lhat he intended to open the contract. Lewis is closed-mouthed as ever about his intentions, but it seems a ioregone conclusion that he will ask for the same pay for. ;i sume- wnal shorter work week. In this respect he has a powerful argument in the president's own wage policy of October 30. This allows puce consideration to employers who raise straight time average earnings 33 per cent above the January 1941 levels, lo offset the wartime rise in living costs. The miner now receives $10 a day lor eight hours' work, and work a six-day week. One hour a -._.. is paid for underground travel land lunch. The basic work week is still M5 hours, however, and Lewis may ask for return to that. A preview was provided at the recent wage scale conference of Hn union's district 5. in western Pennsylvania. It called for the same -IB-hour pay lor a 35-hour, five-day week. It also approved resolutions for more vacation pay and renewal of G. M. Strike Cost Exceeds $750,000,000 By DAVID J.
