Yours truly. * * * By JAMES THRASHER Mr. Truman's Optimism If ever a statement needed amplifying, it is President Truman's belief and rather vague assurance that he is not alarmed about thc international situation and thai he ^.is sure lhal "we will work il out." * The' American—and British — people certainly would appreciate from Mr. Truman an explanation of his optimism as explicit as sc- curily and diplomacy permit. Instead, Ihey arc given two short sentences which treat an obviously dangerous condition in a casual, offhand manner. Consequently, it is little wonder lhal Ihe comfort to be found in thc Prcsidcn't stale- ment is almost as brief as .Ihc stale-incut ilself. -. The people are to assume that -"there is no clangor of war next week or nexl month, and thai the touchy relations between America, Britain, and Russia will soon be smoothed oul. All of us, devoutly wanting to believe this, would breathe a little easier if we knew how it is lo bo clone, and by whom. The President of ' thc Unilcd Stales clearly possesses a groat deal of information in situations like this which is denied to the press and public.

Mr. Truman made his appeal at a $100-a-plate-Jackson Day dinner here Saturday night, Secretary of Commerce Henry A. Wallace and Postmaster General Robert E. Hanncgan, party chairman, also called for unity. Typical southern reaction was mat of Rep. Eugene E. Cox, D , Gn., a lender of the southern conservative bloc in thc house. Cox fell lhal Mr. Truman was "doing a good job under Ihe circumstances." "But on maters of legislation," he said, "Jeffcrsonian and Jacksonian Democrats follow their leaders when they believe them to be right and the dictates of their own consciences when they believe them wrong." "It would be a sorry sort of democracy if an individual were not able lo vole according to his own views." Sen. John Overtoil, D. ,La., also defended the right of individual jJcmocrals lo vole as they saw fit But he expressed strong opposition lo the formation of parly policy by Ihe president and a few White House advisers alone. "The old parly caucus was a better system than dictation from a few top leaders," Overtoil said. Hut after all you'can never take away from a congressman his right lo vole as he wants." Some Democrats were reported to have boycotcd the dinner because of Wallace's place on the speaker's platform. Wallace the parly's .chief link wilh the New Deal, angered southerners earlier la si week when he suggcsled a virtual "purge" of Democrats who consistently refused to vole for important administration bills. The southerners noted thai Mi- Truman had avoided any such proposal and that Wallace himself had not repcattd it at the Jackson Day gathering.) Wallace nevertheless did criticize Democrats who re—'"-' •-^ L - 1 --- •• bills wilh ., t nad been done great harm those who wrap themselves with the traditions of Jefferson and Jackson but whose actions belied their pretensions." Regarding Wallace's remarks, Cox said: "Wallace is a newcomer to the Democratic party, and to those alive during its day of adversity, nt«J \\in i«r11? /-I /-»!-»* I ~ *, i words sight." don'tc.r, mu .p ''h Couple at Texarkana Robbed, Slain Texarkana, March 25 — (/P) — Bowie county, Texas, Sheriff W.H.

In words identical to the official Russian announcement, an Iranian government spokesman announced thai the withdrawal was under way. Ho said il would be completed, barring unexpected developments, in five weeks. That means approximately May 1, ,-il- mosl Iwo months afler Ihe withdrawal date set by thc Anglo-So- vict-Iranian Ircaly of 1042.

Whitney, president of the Brother- hod of Railroad Trainmen, today declared that adoption by 29 rules changes proposed by thc nation's railroads "would be a signal for a strike." Whitney, testifying before a federal emergency fact-finding board in behalf of two operating unions, the trainmen and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, said under cross-examination: "Adoption of these rules, or an effort to reduce Ihe standard of living or working conditions of the men on the American railroads by the adoption of these rules, will be a signal for a strike." He did not elaborate. Chicago, March 25 (UP) — A. F. Whitney, president of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, told an emergency fact-finding board loday that the railroads are wasting great sums of money, perhaps as much as $2,000,000 a day. The carriers are spending millions in a "propaganda effort" to discredit their employees, he testified in a"hearing.'-jDii. the demands, of two brotherhoods for a wage increase and changes in working rules. fa Authority of State Courts Is Upheld Lille Rock, March 25—(/P)—The Arkansas supreme court ruled today thai slale courts have authority to hear overtime wage suits against corporations which held contracts with the federal government for construction of' defense and war installations. The ruling was contained in an opinion denying H. B. Deal and CVO., Inc., of St. Louis, Mo., a writ of prohibition restraining Circuit Judge Tom Marlin of the second division of Union (El Dorado) circuit court from hearing 59 suits for back overtime pay. The order also quashed a ternr porary writ issued by the supreme court January 14,' 194G. The deal firm contended that any judgment against it ultimately would be borne by thc federal government, thus in effect making the suits against thc federal government although the United States, was not a formal party to the action.

Draja Mihailovic, once hailed as a guerrilla hero in the fighl against Ihe Nazis, was officially reported under arrest as a traitor and war criminal today following his capture by Yugoslav authorities. Alexander Rankovic; minister of the interior, announced to a cheering Parliament yesterday that the war-time leader of the Chetniks, who had been hunted for nearly two years in thc Yugoslav hills by Marshal Tito's forces, had been seized March 13. Rankovic did nol say where Ihc capture occurred, but it was rumored thai Mihailovic, King Peter's former war minisler, was Iraped near Vishegrad, near Ihc Serbian-Bosnian border. An official radio broadcast said Ihe general was captured in a mountain cave guarded by only 11 men of his forces, which once were estimated to total as many as 20,000. The radio account quoted Ran- kovic as saying: "These (11) men were all that was left after his disastrous defeat of May, 1945. There is no doubl Mihailovic was Ihe lasl hope of all reactionaries x x xworking, openly or secretly, against the Yu- federal republic." Dr. Ivan Subasic, former foreign minister, said last May that Mi- hailovic "will be shot" when captured. He added that the Chetnik leader would be given a "fail- trial, but we have enough legal evidence to convict him."

Doolittle and a board of five other former servicemen, ranging from general to sergeant, were convened by Sccrelary of War Robert P. Patterson in the wake of heavy criticism of army officer- enlisted man relationships. Former vjl's were joined by some officers in their loud protests that officers got the best food, the prettiest girls and the best living quarters. They complained that the officers drank up all the good liquor, escaped punishment for infractions of minor rules and treated the GI's "social inferiors," Lt. Col. Roberl Neville, New York newspaperman who slarled oul as a GI and became officer in charge of Ihe Mediterranan dM- lion of Stars and Stripes is one of the board members. He sounded off on the "caste system" in a recent magazine article. Neville hit out at rules barring enlisted men from "officer country" (Sepcial bars and hotels for officers). He opposed special reserved movie seats for officers and separation of officers 'from enlisted men in rear area hospitals. Brig. Gen. H. C. Holdridge, retired, got into the controversy Feb. 20 when he told a House Military Committee the army was "undemocratic and un-American — a feudalistic organization carried over into the atomic age." Joe McCarthy, former managing editor of Yank, army weekly, suggested that all officers except those in technical services should be selected from the ranks. He proposed the same uniforms for officers and enlisted men, the same food, living quarters, recretaional facilities for both. Former Gov. Philip LaFollette of Wisconsin, a veteran of two wars, proposed a base pay for private of $100 a month, opening promotions to officer stalus to men in the ranks through competitive civil service examination and elimination of political appointments to West Point. • Holdridge, McCarthy and LaFollette are not members of the Doolittle board. 3 Airplanes > Are Lost in Florida Crash Miami, Fla., March 25 — (UP)— Three airplanes were said to have crashed into the Atlantic today, two of them after a collision, and at least one flier was rescued.

The accident was seen from the Sombrero lighthouse, and planes and surface crafl were rushed to search the area and do rescue work. The types of planes were not known. The Miami Naval Air Station said that none of its planes was missing. The merchantman S. S.

Florida Has First Say on Labor Law Washington, March 25— (/P) — The Supreme Court said today that before it gives a final ruling on validity of Florida's ban on the closed union shop, Florida state courts must decide the issue. The high tribunal's decision was given on an appeal by American Federation of Labor unions from a ruling by a three-judge U. S. district court at Tampa. The district court the ban written into the state constitution did not violate the federal constitution. Justice Douglas delivered the high court's 6-2 decision. Chief Jus-' tics Stone wrote '•;£•>. dissent and''Jus- tice Murphy wrote another opinion' in which he dissented in part. Justice Jackson took no part in the case. Justice Douglas said that the-dis-' trict court "did not follow the proper course." "The merits (of the case)," he said, "involve substantial conslitu- lional issues concerning the meaning of a new provision of the Florida constitution which, so far as we are advised, has never been construed by the Florida courts. "Those courts have the final say as to its meaning. When authoritatively construed.it may or it may not have the meaning or force which apellees (state officials) now assume that it has. In the absence of an authoritative interpretation, it is impossible to know with certainty hat constitutional issues will finally emerge.

Just Say 'Go' Three Times to Your Wife (in Egypt)and You Are Free Man Again Reds Pull Out t of Iran, and Crisis Averted New York, March 25—I/P)—A reported Russian agreement to withdraw Soviet troops from Iran appeared today to have pulled the UNO Security Council through its worst crisis to date and promised a major improvement in relations among the United States, Britain and Russia. The break in the Iranian issue, announced by Moscow radio, came on the eve of the council's opening at Hunter college here (1:30 p. m., p. S- T.) and was immediately hailed by officials as a victory for the United Nations system. Even though expected fireworks do not develop, these authorities said the fact that the UNO Council was due to go into the Iranian case must have been the chief cause of Russia s decision to get her troops out of Iran. The Iranian question remained the most important for the council to take up, however, and this seemed likely to be done on a motion by the United States to have Russia and Iran make a report on their agreement. In this way officials hoped to get the pact registered with the council and, assuming the council approves, give it the effective backing of that agency to assure that it is promptly and fully carried out. Secretary of State Byrnes arrived late yesterday to represent the United States in the Iranian debate. He brought a message of welcome to the United Nations from President Truman and was scheduled to deliver that with a brief speech of his own soon after Dr Quo Tai-Chi of China, president of the council, calls the first session, to order. Today's session was planned as one ot formalities and speech-making with debate on Iran to beein Tuesday. The opening marks the beginning of the United Nations as a permanent world peace organization in the United States. Simultaneously the council's military staff committee, high command of the armies destined to carry out the council's orders, arranged to meet secretly at a Manhattan hotel.

In preparation for today's' council meeting a huge crew of workmen have in two weeks converted Hunter College in the Bronx from a wartime Wave Training school to the temporary "capitol of the world". The council itself has a deluxe beige and buff carpeted and curtained chamber in what was formerly a basketball court. It's activities are governed by a wide-open press policy and the most modern means of communication, including -television, have been marshalled to keep the world informed of all it does. Over all the fancy physical trimmings there was until the weekend an air of anxiety, and delegates appeared worried and uncertain in private conversation as to how well the council committed to preserve the security of all nations would hold up under the strain of the Iranian case. The chief issue was the continued presence of Russian troops in Iran beyond the treaty limit of March 2. The big question was how tej get them out. This is the question to which Moscow radio seems to have given the answer with its announcement that Russia had started withdrawing them and that the evacuation would be completed in five to six- weeks if no trouble ' By HAL BOYLE Cairo, March 25 — (/P)— Div is easy for men in E lust call in the wife, Tn ey :ier three times and they are free men again.
