So declared Lloyd Brazil, University of Detroit basketball coach, today as he reviewed recent proposals to curb activities of the "big fellows" of the basketball courts. "I don't think any of the suggestions advanced at the recent National Basketball Coaches' Association rules meeting in New York would prove very workable," Brazil said. "Admittedly something must be done to equalize things to give the fellows under six feet tall a chance, but the big question is what can we do that won't harm the game in some other respect" "As long as Bob Kurland of Oklahoma A & M, George Mikan of Do Paul and Don Otten of Bowling Green were around and scoring a lot of points, there was bound to be a lot of agitation against them. They 11 be gone next season, however, and most of the fireworks will disappear," the Detroit coach added. "I saw Mikan stand under the basket and score 53 points against Rhode Island State, almost without moving more than two or three feet, simply because he's six-feet, nine-inches tall," Brazil reminisced.

Want Trustee of Wilson Removed Little Rock, March 28 — (/P) — Lee Wilson and company heirs arc seeking removal of J. H. Grain of Wilson as trustee for the vast eastern Arkansas plantation-mercantile establishemtn. Two daughters and a grandson of the late R. E. Lee Wilson, who founded the plantation in the 1880's filed a petition in federal district court here yesterday asking Cram's removal. They also sought a court order dissolving the trust and ordering Grain to transfer the holdings to a corporation. Petitioners were Mrs. Victoria Wilson Wesson of Springfield, Mass.; Mrs. Marie Wilson Howells, New York City, and Lee Wesson of Wilson. They asked the court to order conversion of the demand indebtedness of the trust's certificate holders into a time indebtedness .of sufficient duration to enable the owners to establish a market for the corporation stock, and asked the court in the meantime to enjoin the trustee from demanding payment of the indebtedness. The petition claimed that Grain had built up considerable planting and business interests of his own which demanded an increasing amount of his time and that they deemed it impossible for him to satisfactorily perform his duties"' The trust controls about 55,000 tillable acres and some 50 different business enterprises, including cotton gins, oil mills, dehydration plants, lumber companies, a bank, wholesale grocery, various types of retail stores and farm implement firms.

"In thc agreement, Ihc Uniled Slales would provide crcdil— up to 4 billion dollars— intended lo /make available lo London enough ready cash so lhat John Bull can get industry and trade going again.

"Fulbrighl answered that question. He said thai Arkansas exports more than one-third of ils enlire collon crop, much of il lo Great Britain. And without free trade between nations, there would Ifbe no market for Arkansas collon." Most Americans, your correspondent believes, favor ultimate' granting of the loan lo Britain. But there is a reluctance to say "when". Some feel that granting of the loan to Britain would set i\ precedent for demands for similar loans by Russia and others, whose democracy we do not trust as implicitly as the frce-cleclion-supporl- ea government of London. But what Fulbrighl says of Ihc '^•British loan and world trade is ^inanswcrablc.

Announcing this today ,1ho OPA said the increases result from higher prices recently authori/cd for me packing industry lo offscl a wage increase of 10 ccnls an hour. Price hikes for veal, lamb and mutton will be announced later. Retail pork prices generally will 3c tipped nn average of three- uarters of a cent a pound, OPA said, while beef price increases will average a third of a cent a pound. Increases for individual pork and iccf cuts range from one to four cents a pound. The price boost for mosl popular cuts—such as sirloin and porterhouse steaks, bacon and pork chops and loins—will be only one cent a pound. In some areas, ceilings for these culs will nol be increased. For example there will be no price change for porterhouse slcak in Los Angeles and Dallas, according lo OPA, bul il will cosl a penny more a pound in Chicago, New York and Nashville. On Ihc other hand, there will be an increase of a cent a pound for flank steak in Dallas, but not in the other cities mcstioncd. The reason for these discrepancies, an OPA official explained, is that meat prices are figured under a formula based on costs which vary from area to area. Retail prices arc rounded off to the near- cuts are being raised in price, but only a third of beef cuts. Beef liver and coked corned HOPE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, MARCH 29, 1946 as ... donee rcliriiiK director general of UNRRA, that compulsory rationing be re- imposed in this; country to; help feed Europe's hungry people. It is ^Wess likely that (the proposal will be acted upon. ' 'i- If it were, Ihere would probably be an unbecoming slorm of pro- lesl nol plcasanl lo witness. That is not a flatlcring Ihing lo say about the American people. Perhaps it is unfair. Yet a quick glance about 1'evcals an uncomfortably ample supply of support for lhal slalemcnl. As a people we seem to have ; learned litlle from the war. We hliVe made an earnest and deliberate effort to forget it as quickly , )as possible. That Is a natural reaction, blfl in thc lighl of our moral • and .poliiftcal. obligations,, it .is neither very humane nor very wise. We suffered litlle during the war, compared wilh Ihe people who were our allies. Since the war ended we have not been entirely unmindful of this or ungenerous toward them. Bul our help has been far short of sacrifice. In a brondcnst on the eve of his departure for Europe, Hcrberl Hoove. asiMiu cacn /vmcncan lamily lo V imagine lhal one of the helpless and hungry women or children of Europe was an invisible guest at its table, and to pul aside enough lo feed lhal guesl as Ihe family naturally would food a neighbor who was helpless and hungry. That was a difficult request. Most of us instinctively help a neighbor in time of trouble. But, remote we arc from the physical cvi- — jce of Europe's anguish, il requires a real effort to realize and .. ^.o admit ils existence and lo do something aboul it. That may be one reason why Mr. Lehman says that volunteer measures .arc not enough, and that once food has moved into civilian consumption channels, il is loo late to recapture it for shipment abroad. It would be one of our nation's proudest evidences of charily and kindliness if we were lo submit once again to the mild self-denial of rationing, in Ihc knowledge lhal we should thereby be saving hu- i man lives and health. But who can 'say thai Ihe rc-eslablishmenl of rationing would not bring a return of grumbling and of black-marketing in an aggravated form? II also would probably raise a question of some legitimacy: How sure could we be, if rationing returned, thai UNRRA would do ils part of the job with, a zeal untained by jealousy and politics? And how sure could we be thai Ihe answer would be accurate? Thc operation of UNRRA is vast -.ml complicated. There have been liloudy and confusing claims of inefficiency and bad faith— some malicious, others arising from honest doubt. There have been cloudy and conflicting replies. Thus the sad story ends with the sad moral that, in spile of long and elaborate preparation, help — * still be too lillle and loo lale. ,.._ for all Ihe noble and selfish jffoit being put forth, il appears h -t some of Ihe neighbors in Ihis Jjuking- world will eal immod- Ltely well while other starve. i BASS BAN CONTINUES vj|)tlo Rock, March 29. — (IP) — ban on use of artificial bait taking of bass between March _. and May 15 remains effeclivc (gjbilc Clio prc-season opening of -jfcs Wcdington and Lealherwood 101 Ih Arkansas, the game and |.j ot y , remain at the same ceiling.

March 20 — (/P)— BeltW.-army.bfflccrs,' Says a man who is an officer himself, would stop most GI discontent. Lt. Col. William R, Kintner, a West Point graduate of 1940, says that much of the GI griping is due to "lo many commissions and nol enough genuine officers." Kintner appeared yesterday before the board, headed by LI. Gen. Jimmy Doolitlc, which is sludying officer-enlisted man relationships. The public was not allowed lo attend the meeting, but Kinlnec later explained his views to .reporters. "The army isn't perfect, of course," he said. "But I don't think it's a wise move to make any radical changes. "After all, we did pretty well with Ihis system, in spite of its faults, in this war. If officers are properly chosen and trained, wo no longer will hear many of these complaints." Kinlner, formerly of Johnstown, Pa., saw action in the European theater. He now is stalionccl in Washington. . Upholding the enlisted man's ide of Ihe argument was Bill Mauldin, GI cartoonist. Mauldin's two main points: 1. Army newspapers must be kept free of censorship by the brass. The papers give an enlisted man a chance to lei off steam. Ihcy also offer him a place lo air genuine grievances. 2. The enlisted man should get everything an officer docs. Mauldin said the GI should have the same quality clothes, the same i'ood and the same liquor rights. Continued on Page Two Marine Private Poses as a Bank Examiner, and Makes Off With 500,000 Jap Yen Yokohama, March 20 —(UP) — (UP)—Marine Pfc. Karl L. Brown, 19, Clarksburg, W. Va., has confessed robbing a Japanese bank of 5110,000 yen while posing as an army bank examiner, Eighth Army headquarters announced today. Brown is being held on a larceny charge after lie confessed that lie planned and conducted the daringly simple thcfl entirely by himself. His signed confession was taken by criminal investigation division investigators under Capl. Olis J. Carter, Los Angeles, Calif., who said Brown carried forged papers lhat enabled him lo convince officials of Ihc Totsuka branch of the Yokohama-Koslikin bank that he was a bank examiner. The confession said Brown made a survey of the bank March 12 and the following day returned and told Bank Manager Mnsnloki Kishiino- lo his funds would have to be trans- ferred lo Tokyo. The manager placed the 580,000 yen in bags, and Brown, accompanied by four bank clerks who were acting as "guards," left for Yokohama by train. Al Yokohama Ihcy all got off the train and Brown look the money, got in a wailing truck wilh a Negro driver and drove off, saying he •would be back in a few minlures. That was the last the bankers saw of Brown until his arrest early yesterday morning in a downtown hold. The Negro driver, whose identity was not revealed, was absolved of all connection with the theft after Brown said he offered him 10,000 yen to drive him to Yokosuka wilh- out telling him of the robbery. More than 400,000 yen have been accounted for cither in Brown's possession or in hiding places he pointed out lo army investigators. Red Cross Total Now Is $6,633 Previously reported J. H.

The State Police Say: A little horse-sense added to the horse-power helps hold accidents down. YOU must furnish the horse-sense to avoid having an accident. Berlin, March 29 — (/I 1 )—A plan to eliminate Germany's industrial war potential while retaining enough of the beaten nation's economy to make il reasonably self- sustaining by 1949 has been'adopt- ed by the Allied control council. The program, outlined in detail oy the council lasl night, slashes German economy in half and places future emphasis in production on agriculture and on coal and materials for the rebuilding of war-torn cities. Every industry which could possibly be diverted to the manufacture of war materials is lo be eliminated and other industries considered on the fringe of the war potential arc to be cut back. Only enough export trade is provided for to pay for the food Germans must import to maintain their reduced living scale. Allied officers said the target is to establish by 1949 a standard of living for Germany approximating thai of J932. Germans would ;iol be permitted a higher standard of living than the European average. The council's outline established four general industrial categories: 1. Industries to be prohibited. These included synthetic gasoline and oil, synthetic rubber, synthetic ammonia, ball and taper roller bearings, heavy machine tools of war-making types, heavy tractors, aluminum, magnesium, beryllium, vanadium, radio active mate-rials (including uranium i, hydrogen peroxide. The list expands i'romj Three. five to 19 the industries barred by the Potsdam meeting of the Biu ""--;o. Those to bo restricted to certain levels so any excess can be used lo pay off Germany's war limited lo 5,1)00,000 ingot Ions a deblK. Cutbacks included steel, year, about 39 per cent of the prewar output; and machine tools, with only 11.4 per cent of pre-war production allowed, a senior officer said economic exports of all four Allied powers would tour the Reich lo compile a lisl of industries which can be used to pay German war debts. 8. Industries producing peacetime goods which may go ahead full blast. Coal, lor instance, is to be mined to the utmost, providing a balance for export in order thai Germany may have cash io meet reparations. 4. Industries which have levels fixed for 19-IB only, without providing lor reparations tmould those levels be exceeded. A statement issued by the council said the heavily-industrailized Ruhr would remain as part of Germany, at least temporarily.

The veto question was brought to the front by Senator Ferguson (R- Mich) in discussing the State Department's proposal for a United Nations "atomic development au- thonty" which would mine all fissionable materials and operate all primary production plants. From these, "denatured" products would be shipped to secondary plants. From these, "denatured" products would be shipped to secondary plants throughout the world for eilher scicnlific or industrial purposes. But Ferguson told a reporter he docs not see how a satisfactory agreement outlawing the use of atomic energy for war purposes can be reached if any of the Big Five nations retains the right to veto measures the UNO security council might want to take to enforce thai agreement. "It's my opinion," the Michigan senator said, "thai we are not yet ready lo place full control of atomic energy in an international organization until we can be assured that such an organization will control it at all times for peaceful usr-s." He said lhat before the United Slates turns over its secret formulas and processes to such an organization, it should make certain that no nation could veto an action to prevent use of these formulas and processes to make atomic bombs. Senator Pepper (D-Fla), who said he likes the general outline of the State Department plan, agreed thai no veto should operate an any such case. He suggested lhat if the security council is the enforcement agency, it should be able to act on a simple majority vote. At present the Uniled Slales, Britain, Russia, France and China hold certain veto rights in the security council. Seconding Pepper's view, Senator Fulbright (D-Ark) said it is his idea thai if the nations agree to permit the inspection envisoned under the State Departmenl plan, they would have to commit themselves in advance to full enforcement of security regulations. The Stale Deparlment report's confirmation that a way has been found to "denature" energy-producing plutonium of its exolosive qualities prompted assertions by legislators that this may simplify the task of-pro venting-secret' bomb manufaclure. The Senate's special atomic committee, working again today on domestic control legislation, decided to call Dr. J. R.

PRICE 5c COPY UNO to Fire Three Questions at Both the Soviet and Iran MacArfhur, 'Ike' Named to Defense Posts Washington, March 29 — (/P) — President Truman's idea for -a council of star-studded elder statesmen on national defense caught Capitol Hill by surprise today. Key members of Senate and House Military anrt Naval Committees, usually familiar with administration thinking along such lines, said today they had no previous word of the president's intention. Mr, Truman announced at his news conference yesterday that, acting under a recentl yapproved bill providing permanent ::ive-star rank for four generals and four admirals and four-star rank :cor the marine and coastguard commanders, he had sent their names to the Senate for confirmation. Then the chief executive told newsmen the ten World War II leaders would constitute an organization of elder statesmen, which would serve directly under him Precisely what it would do, he didn't say. Its members will be: Generals of the Army Dwight D Eisenhower, Douglas MacArthur, George C. Marshall and Henry H Arnold; Fleet Admirals William D Leahy, Chester W. Nimitz, WUIiam F. Halsey and Ernest J. King; Gen. Alexander A. Vandegrift, marine commander, and Adm. Russell R. Waesche, chief of the coast guard. Chairman Elbert D. Thomas CD- Utah) of the Senate Military Com- mitce expressed surprise when reporters told him of the elder statesmen plan. He said he had not been consulted, and he expressed the hope that any policy organization would include members of Congress. Chairman May (D-Ky of the House Military Committee and Carl Vinson (D-Ga) of the House Naval. Committee also said they had heard nothing of the plnn an were unprep'ared to speculate on what functions the organization might carry out. Congress wasn't alone, however in its surprise at yesterday's developments.

HIGHTOWER New York, March 29 — (/P) —A majority of the Uniled Nalions Se- curily Council, with considerable leadership from Secretary of Slate Byrnes, drove toward a showdown with Russia today over her refusal lo take part in discussion of the Iranian case. As the council scheduled (2 p.m., C. S. T.) anolhcr public meeling on Ihc case, having decided to go ahead without Russia, there were authorilalivc prediclions lhat it would adopt a plan calling for submission to bolh Moscow and Tehran of three specific questions bearing on current negotiations between them and on the withdrawal of Russian troops from Iran. Replies would be requesled by early nexl week, probably Tuesday or Wednesday, after which the council might proceed with or without the answers. The question procedure won informal majority support at a closed session of the council late yesterday, according to persons familiar with the discussions at that meeting. Among top delegates there was some hope the Soviet government would find this, or some other method, as a graceful way out of the situation created by Ambassador Andrei Gromyko's Moscow-directed absence from two council sessions. Whether Gromyko would attend today's session was still a matter of doubt. When the Russian delegate left nis hotel this morning he said he was undecided whether he would be present when the council convened. When a newsman asked him, "Would you say you are not going?" he replied, "I , don't know." Asked why he stayed away from yesterday's executive session after previously announcing he would attend, Gromyko said: "I did not say yes." Secretary Byrnes was represented by persons familiar with his stalemenls at yesterday's secrel council session as exlremely desirous of finding a "constructive solution" to the problems both of the Iranian case and restoration of harmony within the council. But he was determined, with the publicly expressed backing of President Truman, not to let the Soviet boycot hamstring the council's work in so far as that can be prevented, even though Russia is one of the five powers holding permanent seats in that agency. In Washington, meanwhile President Truman told reporters at a press conference he fully supported Byrnes in the policies the secretary of state was pursuing here. These policies, with the reported backing of a majority of the council, were moving swiftly today into a new phase, the key to which is the council's informal decision at its closed meeting yesterday that Russia's absence should not be allowed to halt its work on the Iranian case. A slate of three major questions, which may finally be formally staled in carious combinations, was reported in preparation for submission to the council with a proposal thai bolh Russia and Iran be requesled to answers them. Regardless of how they are finally stated and exactly how many there turn out to be, Ihese are the things Byrnes and others sharing his views want to know: 1. Why are Russian assurances that their troops are being removed from Iran, barring unforeseen developments, nol salisfac- tory lo Ihe Iran government ? 2. What negotiations are going on between Russia and Iran? 3. Is the removal of Red Army forces conditional upon these ne- golialions? The plan of Ihe sponsors was to ask the council to request the Russian and Iranian govcrnmenst to supply the answers over Ihe weekend.

J., March 29—• (IP) —Fiorello LaGuardia, new director general of UNRRA, told delegates from 48 nations today that he would seek food for world relief wherever he could find it—including the Argentine. . "Ticker tape ain't spaghetti," cried out the squat, 1 fast-taling former mayor of New York in his inauguration address after bluntly declaring that the people of the world "want bread, not advice." With almost a touch of scorn, he waved a batch of resolutions which have been passed during the two week council meeting here, and asserted belligerently: week council meeting here, and asserted belligerently: "I wont ploughs, not typewriters. xx I want last moving ships — not slow reading resolutions.'" At the outset of his cxtemporani ecus speech in the formal, flag- . bedecked setting of the council, r \ LaGuardia confessed amid chuckles that he was "no diplomat." "When I have something to say," he said, "I'll say it. From this point on, the protocol is off." "Wheat, he cried, "has no political complexion, and I'll buy wheat wherever I can find it." Then he said that he would start right now by extending his greeting to Col. Peron, president of Argentina. "Here is an opportunity," he said, "for An.;-- 1 -' •••-• *- -' desire to copt of the world./' (A disvHileh from Buenos Aires' today sr.ic) Arsum.ina had declined an invitation lo membership iri UNRRA on Ihe ground that she already is committed to send all her exportable food surplus to various countries by sale or donation.) "Before long,'.!.,La- Guardia continued, '?I'll-'be knocking' at the door of my. old friend, MacKenzie •<, King," of Canada. "Perhaps - we '$ can scrape up a ilew bushels there." V, He told the delegates that relief was "not an international chess game where every move seeks an advantage, nor a game where one ponders every, move." "Our job is to take food where' we can find it, and to, take it to', people who need it wherever they are," he said. Successor to Herbert Lehamn as director general of UNRRA, the former mayor of New York was confronted with an assignment complicated by the fact that the relief work is dependent upon voluntary procurement of supplies rather than mandatory rationing, Despite Lehman's request, the UNRRA council refused to go all- out for war time controls over food. UNRRA's position was taken in concurrence with the contention by President Truman, Herbert Hoover and Agriculture Secretary Clinton Anderson that rationing now was unnecessary to meet a short period emergency. LaGuardia's appearance before the council to accept his new post will wind up this session of the in- ;ernalional relief organization— first-born cooperative venture of the United Nations. Delegates here awaited LaGuar- dia's inauguration address, anxious lo learn whether he would string along with Lehman's position or accept the position of Hoover, Truman and Anderson, The UNRRA struggled two ' weeks to find ways and means of preventing mass starvation. There was ueep and grave concern by men" who have seen gaunt starvation — helpless, homeless, hungry children at first hand — over the economic implications of suffering upon world stability. Many problems were left unsettled, From spokesmen of member nations came frank admission that there just isn't food to meet all the needs. There was general agreement lhat the requirements of ex-enemy countries must be placed at the botlom of the list . Beyond focusing world atention on the shortages, UNRRA took few hardboiled steps for supplementing them from the three biggest potential food bins—the United States, Latin America and Russia. Despite the pleas of little countries dependent upon relief, UNRRA's council gingerly sidestepped a move to call for hard- and-fast return to rationing in all countries. Instead Ihe delegates suggested such a step "where necessary."
