HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS U. S. Says, Russia Must Cooperate Washington. 'March 3—(.•1 T i— High American cufk-ial.s said today Russia must promise wholehearted economic cooperation with the United Nations before this government will even begin considering the Soviet request for a SI.000,000,- 000 loan. These top-ranking trade and financial experts who may not be further identified told a reported that Russia, before being allowed to open discussions on the loan itself, will be asked whether she will join: 1. The international trade organization to be set up this summer under the United Nations economic council. a. The international bank and monetary fund which will be or- gaized at a 35-iuition meeting beginning March 8 at Savannah, Ga. Thus far, Russia has not indicated whether she will join either of these organia/.Uons although invitations were sent to her many months ago. While the United Stales has notified Moscow it is prepared to egin "overall discussions" immediately, j these officials say a Soviet pledge i to cooperate is a necessary .first ; step. That given, they add, this : country will be willing to begin for ma I negotiations.

NEWS FOR'GUM CHEWERS San Francisco, March 5 —i.fP)— The plight of kids who are having trouble with bubble-gum "tie in" sales was eased by the OPA today. Bubble-gum is a scarce article. So the OPA frowned when the a^cusa- tion was made that an Oakland dealer was insisting on tie-in sales —a youngster could not buy a penny stick of bubble-gum unless he also bought a 5-cent candy bar. The dealer was fined S60. "The candy bars were not bad." said an OPA investigator. "Just sticky." MEALS TASTE BETTER WHEN YOU SERVE BLUE RIBBON BREAD AT YOUR GROCERS and ITY Churchill Speech May Not Help Big 3 By ALE XH. SINGLETON Washington, March li -—(/I')— A. disturbing new element beset suspicion-riddled Big Three relations today — Winston Churchill's plea for quick creation of an Anglo-American military alliance. Here in the nation's capital two schools of diplomatic thought reacted to the impact of the Churchill address. One held that it would bring hidden distrust out into the open and force a showdown: the other that it would bolster belief that security must entail spheres of influence. There appeared little sentiment to discount the weight of Churchill's words on American public opinion, coming as they did only five days after Secretary of. State Byrnes told the world this country must stand ready to fight, if necessary, to protect the principles of the United Nations Charter. On top of Byrnes' solemn words have piled these developments in recent weeks to strengthen arguments in some American diploma- tie quarters .that another face to face meeting among the chiefs ot state has become essential to renew wartime bonds of cooperation: 1. A United States protest sent to Moscow only yesterday against the failure of Russia to withdraw Red aimy forces from Iran by the March 2 dateline. 2. A second not of protest based on a Chinese report to this government that the Soviet Union had claimed Japanese industries in Manchuria as "war booty" and had proposed joint operation of much of the territory's basic industry. Neither note was made public, but this country has taken the stand that no such reparations settlement in Manchuria could be undertaken by Russia alone or by only Russia and China. 3. Canada's disclosure — and Russia's acknowledgement — that Soviet agents in Canada have at temotcd to obtain military secrets through espionage. 4. Published reports from Dairen that Russian troops were deporting Japanese forces to Siberia for use in labor battalions. 5. A Soviet announcement that the Kuriles, strategic chain of islands across the entrance to the sea of Okhotsk, and southern Sakhalin, have been incorporated into Russia on the strength of a Yalta agreement but without ratification by the United Nations. 6. Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson's statement yesterday that the soybean crop in Manchuria — essential to the peoples diet — had been "liberated." Asked specifically as to whether Russia was responsible. Anderson replied "nor primarily." He added that it might have been one of the Chinese factions. Churchill spoke at Fulton, Mo., yesterday as a private citizen. But the fact that lie was introduced by President Truman lent perhaps even more importance to his words than if they had been voiced on the floor of Commons in Churchill's role of leader of his majesty's government's loyal oposition. It has been emphasized, however, that Mr. Truman's appear- lancc, on the same platform does Compared with any other coffee anywhere under any Admiration, you'll say?

The Red army currently controls Changchun, as it does Manchuria's other major cities; and China is represented only by a military mission and civilian officials. Most Changchun shops are boarded up. Civilians leave the streets by 4 p. m. for being ac- yestcr CO stcd by soldiers. This applies to some 350 to 400 Chinese officials sent here by the Chungking government to take over control of Manchurian affairs. Their work has been at a standstill for two months or more. Provincial administrators have ibeen unable to carry out their duties pending agreement between Russia and China on the degree of economic collaboration between the two nations in this once rich land of industry and agriculture. Chinese officials arc housed, for the most part, in one large build- in formerly used by Manchuria's coal mining administration. It is there that Lt. Gen. Tung Yeng- Ping, chief of the Chinese military mission, maintains a small liaison force. Since the fatal stabbing of seven Chinese mining officials on their return from the Fushun Collieries in mid-January, there has been no further attempt to take over coal mines. The Soviets said they would bo unable to guarantee protection of officials. This same lack of assurance for safety kept officials from proceeding lo-Dairen. Only a few have reached Harbin. There is considerable gloom among these officials on their immediate future. Life is much the same for Chinese airforce officers here.

Mr Brown introduced Mr. H.A. Daugthery, President of Ihe Arkadelphia Chamber of Commerce who staled lhal with industry moving South, (hose cities which first located such indusries would naturally prosper most. Mr. Daugh- cryl further staled lhat the plan proposed in regards lo Hope's ne- gotialions with Shanhouse and Sons was financially sound and a reasonable business venture in addition to being for the civic and business growth of the community. Mr. Brown then introduced Mr. H.

But there's been no major railroad strike since 1926. Why? And why will the railroad strike threatened for Monday almost surely not occur? Because of the Railway Labor Act Congress passed in 192(>", and which has un- deigonc a few changes since. A joint committee of rcprcsenla lives of the railroads and unions supported the bill which became the law. This law applies to railroads and airlines. It sets up a three-man national mediation board. The mem hers, appointed by the president, •serve three years terms. Each receive $10,000 a year. The bourq handles disputes over wages and working conditions. ! It works like this: Say a union wants higher pay. It notifies the company. There can be no strike for the next 30 days, while company and union talk it over. •' If. Ihey can'l agree, Ihe union •asks the mediation board to step in. If the board can't get the company and union to agree, it asks both sides to submit Iheir case lo a special arbitration board set vip to pass on this one ease. Neither side has lo agree to sub- mil ils case to . an arbitration board. But when both agree, both must accept the board's decision. ••• • (There has been much bilter- less over the decisions of some of these arbitration boards but they're still being used.) Suppose a union refuses to submit ils case to an arbitration board. What then? It decides lo strike.

Awaits Reply From Russia to Get Troops Out of Iran Truman * in Move to Aid Pauley Washington, March 8 — (IP) —Pre- idenl Truman was credited by members of the Senate Naval com mitle today with having stepped in to delay a move for withdrawal of Edwin W. Pauley's nomination as undersecretary of the navy. Two senators who declined lye of their names said there had been an exchange of letters between the president and Pauley. They said this upset an agreement for the California oil man to quit tomor row his fight for confirmation. Pauley himself, however, told the committee he intended to stay in the fight, asserting "no real man quits under fire — no honest man withdraws when he knows he is right." At the same time, Pauley lashed out at Harold L. Ickes. for mer secretary of Interior, and other critics. In Ihe letter Mr. Truman was reported to have sent Pauley, the president was represented as hav ing asked for a delay in any move to withdraw. Senators who sale they were informed about the mat ler added Ihey were told that Mr. •© Washington, March 8 —(/P)—Pres-®- iclenl Truman vigorously asserted al his news conference today that the Uniled Nations Organization would not be allowed to collapse, and expressed confidence that Soviet Russia will go along with the organization's work. The president's comments was prompted by questions about what might happen if Russia declines to comply with the United Slates request for the immediate wilh- drawal of Soyiel troops from Iran. That situation, Mr. Truman said, will be handled when it comes up. A reporter then suggested that a Russian refusal mignt mean collapse of the world peace agen- The president disagreed strongly, asserting that the UNO would not be allowed _to collapse. "Even if Russia went down a cides whether the strike will inter fere with interstate commerce. If the mediation board so decides, it notifies the president. He then appoints a fact-finding board to inquire into the dispute and rcoorl to him. • The fact-finders have to report to the president within 30 days. During lhat time there can be no strike .Nor can there be a strike f " v SO days after the board reports. Then a strike is banned for CO a ays. (There's nothing in the law ac- tulaly preventing a strike within those (it) days. But, by a sort of gentlemen's agreement, the strikes don't occur.) '.-.After the iacl-_findei?s 'report, .to the president,"neither company nor union has to accept the fact-finders' say-so. But they usually do. And thus the dispute is settled. The present dispute started last summer. The non-operating unions — such as clerks iind maintenance men — asked for a wage increase of 30 cents an hour and changes in their working coditios. The operating unions — such as engineers and firemen .and conductors '— asked for $2.50 a day more and changes in their working conditions. The unions served upon the companies the usual 30-day notice. The talks which followed lasted till December. No agreement having been reached, the unions apealcd to the mediation board. That board stepped in and after several weeks accomplished this: Three operating unions and 15 non-operating unions agreed to submit the wage demands to an arbitration board while the mediation board continued to try to settle their demands for changes in their working conditions. But two of the biggest unions — the brotherhood of locomotive engineers and the brotherhood of railroad trainmen — refused arbitration and voted to strike Monday morning. Now the White House has announced the president will one-way street?" a reporter asked. The president replied he did not believe Russia was going down one-way street. Official Washington anxiously awaited Moscow's reply to this country's request for immediate withdrawal of Russian troops from Iran.

Senators in a position to know had said earlier that Pauley agreed yesterday to ask Mr. Truman to withdraw the nomination provid ing the naval committee made statement praising his action and upholding his integrity. This wa's in direct contradiction to the .testimony of Ickcs, former secretary of Interior, that Pauley had told him in 1944 that- $300;000 could be raised, from oil men if, ^ government suit to obtain title to tidelands oil areas was not pressed. Pauley made his statement lo the Senate Naval committee, which is considering his nomination as un ders'ecretary of the navy, and linked with it a vigorous defense of his record.
