*J ' ,v- six HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Highway Deaths Up For January Chicago, Feb. 28 — (UP)— American motorists started out 1946 on an "inflationary market of death" with the third greatest number of accidents 6f any January on record, the National Safety Council said today. The .council said that traffic, deaths rose 49 per cent last month' over the same 30-day period ayear, ago. Three thousand persons died in such accidents. The toll was exceeded only by 3,159 in 1937 and 3,085 in 1942. The January death toll was five per cent above that of January. 1941, the last pre-war year and the blackest r in traffic accident records, the council reported. . Traffic Fatalities this year will total 38,000 unless the entire nation cooperates in the current accident prevention program, the safety organization warned. It based the" prediction on the January increase and the pre-war trend of growing high;way mishaps. "Prices for everything are high these days," Ned H. Dearborn, president of the council, said, "but drivers are paying far too dearly for their newfound freedom irom wartime controls and gasoline rationing. . . - 'ls'"tlie thoughtful person willing to tolerate such prices — this inflationary market in death?" Hardest hit by traffic fatalities ware the mountain states, where the percentage increase last month .was 83", according to a council sur- ,vey. Lowest increase was in the Pacific States, with 39 per cent. Other regional increases: : North Atlantic, 71 per cent: South •Atlantic, 53; North Central, 51, and P P F r ir • I • lersonal Property Floater insurance assures you of the "right" insurance in case of loss.

Biggest city with no traffic deaths was Providence, R. I., followed by Worcester, Mass., and Des Moines, la., in lower population groups. The three top cities in more than 500,000 population classification reporting low January death tolls were Washington, D. C., St. Louis, and Buffalo. N. V. In the 250,000 to 300,000 popula lion group, the leaders in traffic safety last month were Providence, Kansas City, Mo,, and Portland, Ore. The leading cities thai reported no traffic deaths included Tampa, Fla. Gl Gets Bail For Wife, Will Stick By Her Boston. Feb. 28 —(UP)— Louis P Spitaleri, former Pawtucket, R II, army sergeant, obtained $5,000 bail for his bride today and promised he would "stick by" the former school teacher who is charged with stealing $4,000 from The Citizens Southern bank in her home town of Dublin, Ga Pretty, blonde Martha Spitaleri, 21, was ordered released from the East Cambridge jail after the former military policeman and his parents arranged to furnish the bail. Mrs. Spitaleri had been imprisoned since yesterday when seized by FBI agents and arraigned before a U. S. commissioner. She pleaded innocent to the larceny charge. Her youthful husband revealed that he had been without sleep since Saturday when he started from Ft. Benning, Ga., to oFrt Devens, Mass., to be discharged. On arrival he was told that his bride, a former University of Georgia student, had been arrested here while en route to meet him at the Fort Devens separation center where he was discharged yesterday. "I'm about ready to collapse — this mess coming .on top of all those sleepless days didn't help matters any," he,, said. "I feel that my wife's record will be greatly in her favor when she appears in court. Regardless of that I'll stick by her." Paul Spitaleri an insurance broker and father of the soldier, paced nervously in a federal building office while bail arrangements were being completed. "Of course this is a terrible thing," he said. "We're frightfully upset, especially since we haven't eaten since noon yesterday." Asked why they had not eaten, the soldier's mother interrupted to remark sharply: "We like to get one thing done at a time." Spitaleri said that he hoped to take his bride to his parent's home as soon as her release was obtained. He said he had been married two months.

The House, which originally was loglsla- scheduled to vote on the lion Wednesday, was in recess until Monday and it was evident that .•idministralion lenders needed the weekend breather for a new effort to muster badly-needed support for the bill Mr. Truman wants.

But there is small doubt that while the Germans arc beaten physically they aren't beaten mentally, and that their transformation into a peace administration leaders brought about adjournment of the House until Monday before a vote could br reached on Ihe subsidy issue.

The hitler was an apparent reference to recent public suggestions that the large! ships might be deployed in a manner which would minimi/.e ihe effect ol" the blast.

Beer Answers the invasion Question as Crew Returns Okinawa — (/P) — The big question during an invasion is: "How did the firs! assault wave do?" II didn't take long to find the answer at Okinawa ' Going in, the fifth assault wave passed Ihe ship thai carried the initial attackers ashore. a frightening thought. The wholesale readjustment of the balance of power as Europe has cast Uncle Sain in the role of friendly mediator between Russia and Britain. Should American public opinion result in our abandonment of Ihe original plan of occupation nf Germany, it would ornate «'i vacuum in the Reich lhal would necessarily bc filled by another power and thai would produce a whirlwind. As lo Ihe general situation in Germany, things are improving. There are three main bottlenecks in Ihe rehabilitation program — food, coal and transport. Encouraging progress is being made in the case of the hitler two although conditions told arc/ appalling. There is a serious shortage of food in many areas of Ihe four allied zones of occupation. There is much illness and in some sections there have been epidemics or are threats of them. Things may get worse before they get better in the mailer of food, for there is a great shortage of fertilizer in the country as well as seed and farm machinery. It is incongruous lo see lh" Germans going oboul wearing far better clothes than Ihe folk in the countries which were occupied, or even in England. The Hitlerite military stripped most of Ihe conquered countries and sent home so much wearing apparel that many German families have enough fine things to last for years. You see fur coals and silks on people living .among Ihe ruins. Progress also is being made in de-Nazifying Germany and in gelling democratic institutions under way. Among other things the schools have been purged :'"<! Ihe Lille folk no longer are being taught Nazism and militarism in Ihe classroom. What they may still be taught at home by Nazi minded fathers and mothers is another question. A point which stands out clearly as a warning lo Ihe Allies is thai while Ihe German people arc chastened by their beating, thp'-v natures haven't yet been changed.

March 2 — (UP) — A week-end truce in Ihe troubled General ^.icctric slrike lefl Philadelphia quiet today as strikers and police awaited further developments on the Ihrealcned city-wide walkout of CIO members. A cordon of 800 policemen was again spread out today around the big GE Eastwick plant, foval point of violence and rioting last Wednesday and Thursday. However, for the second successive day, union pickets obeyed a court ban on mass picketing at the plant. UMW Want New Wage Contract Washington, The United March 1 —(UP) — Mine Workers to. day requested the nation's soft coal operators to negotiate a new wage contract for 450,000 miners and simultaneously filed notice of intentions to strike in 30 days in support of new demands. UMW President John L. Lewis asked the soft coal operators to meet UMW negotiators here at 11 a.m., March 12. He filed the strike notice with the Labor Department, National Labor Relations Board and Wage Stabilization Board in accordance with the War Labor Disputes Act. Lewis' action came on the first day that the current contract between the union and operators could be opened. He said in his letter of notification to the chairman of the national joint bituminous wage negotiating conference that five points are in controversy, relating to 'hours, rates and conditions of employment. Pointing out that there had been a significant change in national government wage plociy, Lewis said: "The national joint conference about to convene will also have before it broad questions affecting wages, hours, rules, practices, differentials and inequalities, as well as other current and involved pertinent problems of the industry." Lewis told Secretary of Labor Lewis B. Schwellenbach in •another letter accompanying the strike notice that the miners would continue at their jobs for the next 30 days under the War Labor Disputes Act. He protested, however, this requirement because the war ended six months ago. "Nevertheless," Lewis said, "since the act still lies heavily on the statute books the UMW is de- serious of meeting all of its requirements." By CARL D. SORESI Washington, March 2 — (#>)— Brit- am, France and the United Stales jressed today for final agreement on a joint declaration encouraging Spaniards to overthrow Generalissimo Franco. But the ques- 1011 was: which Spaniards? Diplomatic representatives of the three powers were intent on citing ihe proposed pronouncement ready for public release this weekend, but France and the United Stales were reported split on issue of what elements to address in the manifesto. French embassy counse- or, Armand Berard, conferred for 80 minutes lale yeslerday afler- ipon with Paul Culberlson, Slale Department chief of western Euro- jean affairs, but no final agree- ncnl was reached. Earlier, the State Deparlment confirmed that Britain and France iad "approved in principle" the U. S. proposed declaration reliably •eported as spurring Spaniards to set up a broadly representative interim government in Madrid pledged to: 1. Calling national elections 2. Declaring political amensty. 3. Providing freedom of religion, assembly, and press. In return, the new government would receive full economic and diplomatic recognition by the Red Planes Fire on U.

March, 2 —(/P)— The Arkansas Power and Light Company today awaited a reply from its offer to pay the federal government $13,000,000 for the uncompleted power plant at Jones Mill, Ark., and the Ark-La trans mission line. ^President C. Hamilton Moses said Ihe company would complete the power plant, 'integrate the transmission line into its entire system, and provide 70,000 kilowatts or more for full operation of the Lake Catherine aluminum plant. The Jones Mill planl was started by the federal government during the war to supply the aluminum planl at Lake Catherine. Work was ] halted when power was provided by combined existing facilities of the government and private utilities. The Ark-La line, 194 miles long, has not been ulilized since the aluminum planl closed al the end of the war. The line was built al a cost of $4,000,000 by a group of five south Arkansas ' and five north Louisiana rural cooperatives. Moses said there are no co-ops that can be served by the Ark-La line without construction of "many miles of expensive transmission lines." e none men Magneisum is so welik in its pure state that a small boy could bend a half-inch bar, yet it is so lough easy, as an alloy that is will stand the drinking i .slock of landing ;i 30-ton war I plane.

The incident was said to have occurred off the China coast. The navy is reported to have taken the matter up wilh Russian authorities in the China area. The Russians are said here to contend that the American plane had the right to fly over the Port Arthur area, since it is a fortified zone. Consequently, they argue, the Soviet pilots were fully within their rights lo open fire. Best information here is thai the American craft did not return the fire. An official report may be issued on the affair. There have been a series of exchanges between Washington and American naval commanders in the area aboul the incident. The view generally expressed at Ihe State Deparlment is that the Russians may have been within their rights lo take Ihe action they did, and lhal even though he may len- have lost his bearings The Am can pilot had no legal right to fly over the area.

PRICE 5c COPY Allies Press Spaniards to Overthrow Franco, but the Question: Which Spaniards? the three powers. The proposal was understood to leave the tasks of changing the present Spanish government to the Spanish people themselves. II was indicated there would be no immediate break with Franco until the tri-power appeal for a change was answered. Differences between the French and U. S. viewpoints were reported hinging on a description of the Spaniards to whom the declaration would be aimed. At present, it was learned, the American proposal is addressed to the Spanish people "inside or outside the (Spanish) government." If thai applies only lo Spaniards within Spain, thus excluding the Spanish Republican government in-exile, then France, it was learned, wants the phraseology changed to read "inside and oulside Spain." France now harbors a reported 250,000 Spanish Republicans under an elected premier, Dr. Jose Giral. The British government, through its embassy here, is understood being kept informed of the negotiations. It is believed Britain will probably side with the American viewpoint on the matter. The French have cabled Paris of the disagreement, but it was uncertain how strongly their government would insist on its point about Spanish Republican exiles: UAW Resumed otidfions Wilh 6. M. By ROY J. FORREST Detroit, March 2 —(UP)— CIO United Auto Workers officials resumed negotialions with General Motors today under a mandate from the national UAW con- lerence to reject any agreement short of the recommendations of President Truman's facl finding panel.

The delegates voled to continue the strike until GM accepted in full the recommendations of President Truman's fact-finding panel in Ihe dispute — a 19-1-2 cents an hour pay hike and reinstatement of the cancelled 1945 contract. . The strike could still end today.

In a broadcast signalizing the start of the drive, the chief executive said last night. "With true American generosity, let us exceed this Red Cros» campaign goal. As president of the United Stales, 1 urge you, my fellow Americans, to support this noble cause to the utmost of your ability." The war. he said, is not over either for the Red Cross or the sick and wounded in army and navy hospitals." The lens of the human eye is more rounded in front than behind. The stand France in Hostile Acts Franco Says, By RALPH FORTE Madrid, March 2 —(UP)— General Francisco Franco's government today accused France of hostile acts and admitted that Spanish Republican guerrillas from France are carrying on a "terrorism" campaign in the interior of Spain. The cabinet issued a sharp com- munique after a long night session in Franco's home during which, reliable reports said, news was phoned to Franco that Francis Cardinal Spellman of New York had postponed and possibly cancelled altogether his visit to Madrid. Spellman's last - minute announcement that he would be absent from the elaborate public ceremonies planned in his honor loday caused great excitement among Spanish government .officials dspite the cardinal's announcement it was bad flying weather which make it impossible for him to arrive today. Franco's communique, a retort to French action closing the Spanish-French frontier, said thai Spain had consistently been a good neighbor to France. It said that the French government, on the other hand, had sponsored or condemned a number of hostile atlacks againsl Ihe Spanish frontier and tried to discredii Spain in international gatherings. "Developments may have serious consequences for the future relations of both countries," the communique warned. The communique disclosed a number of "bloody clashes" along the frontier between Spanish forces and groups of Spanish or French Communists, "in many cases with the complicity and protection of French local authorities." It said thai a force of 5,000 Spanish exiles a Hacked the frontier in October, 1944. Part of them reached the Spanish interior and have been indulging in terrorism, it added. Surprisingly, France was blamed with mistreating Spanish Republican exiles. Spain also blamed France for altacks againsl Spanish consulales in Algiers and southern France, receiving former Siianish Republican cabinet ministers and campaigning against Spain in the UNO. The government assailed what it called "a new international Com- munisl offensive against Spain." It asked Ihe Spanish people lo differ- cntiate between the French Communists and Ihe resl of Ihe French people. One hundred Ihousand small towns and villages in Russia finally have been cleared of mines and shells and booby-traps planted during the German invasion. British May Send Protest to Moscow London, March 2 — (UP) Brilish government look the today thai Russia cannot alone invalidate the Anglo-Soviet-Iranian agreement of 1942 pledging withdrawal of foreign troops from Iran. An official foreign spokosman said the government "is holding the view that the tripartite agreement of 1942 regarding Persia (Iran) cannot be invalidated by one party." The government was understood to be considering an official protest to Moscow, perhaps in conjunction with the United Stales, against the announced Soviet intention of maintaining troops in 1 r 3 n . "No official statement can be made until the foreign office has been informed of the situation through official channels in Moscow and Tehran," the foreign office spokesman said. He said he understood 70,000 Soviet troops still were in Iran. The three-power agreement called for withdrawal of foreign troops by six months after the end of the war and today was the agreed date. The Russian radio announced yesterday that Red army troops would remain in the northern parts of Iran, including the Azerbaijan province, "until the situation has been cleared." The announcement made no reference to the international treaties in which Russia, Britian and the United States agreed to have all their troops out of Iran six months after the war ended.
