April 4 •— (..'PI—j Doc Prothro has the kind'of ball I 'club he likes this year-— fast as | A gazelle and full of ginger —but' Jhe's making no pennant.predictions j ;fbr his Memphis Chicks until he ; gets a better slant at the pitching 'and hitting. "'"We haven't shown., i enough jnmch yet. bating less than .UoO in our exhibition games," the portly Memphis manager: said. ' "But >we have to give our ex-service•men time to find the grove." * There are 17 veterans among the 24 Chicks now making 'strong bids 'for regular employment. ' As the team stacks up now, the j Infield promises to measure with | •the league's best, the outfield is: •fast but of questionable biting power, catching is more than ade- •quate and pitching is an unknown 'quantity. The Chicks have only three out- 'fieldcrs. Roy Bueschen is in right. Paul Armstrong is in .center and Bill Cliggott in left. Bueschen was with the Chicks in 1942 while the other two are good-looking rookies. Merv Conors, a former paratrooper, has an edge at first base with Walter Stockwell, a member of the 1945 club, an understudy. Sure-fielding Hib Freeman, who hit .386 during his brief tenure with the Chicks last year, looks like a cinch at second. George Morgan, with Memphis until drafted last summer, is back at shortstop. Johnny Lukon, a former army captain and another holdover, is spoted for either short or third. Two others are bidding for the third base post — Billy Seal, an army veteran, and ex- Marine Cecil Hubbard. Harry Chozen, the nil-star catcher with Mobile last year, is the No. 1 maskman. He batted .354 for the Bears and set a league record for hiting in consecutive games, 46. The pitching staff is headed by holdovers Fred Biggs, crack right- hander who won 15 games for part of last season: Southpaw Herman Drefs, also a 15-gamc winner and Talmadge Abernathy, another left- hander.

No obligation — except to yourself. ,.-.,•;.; , Washington, April 4 —(UP) — The deadlock in negotiations to settle the soft coal strike continued today as the first violence flared in the four-day-old walkout. At the same time. Solid Fuels Administrator J. A. Krug announced new estimates of bituminous supplies in consumers' hands showed 51,182,000 ton on March 1 — the highest figure since last Oc- I tober. This represented an overall average of 31 days' supply. Because of uneven distribution, however, the strike already has caused some slowing down of industrial activity. . There were signs that the mine operators and the United Mine Workers (AFL) might recees their wage conferences here for several days because of the dim outlook tor an early settlement. First violence in the strike was reported by Hopkins county, Ky., authorities who said a non-UMW miner was "beaten up" by pickets: They ordered 100 special deputies sworn in immediately to prevent any further outbreaks in the county's coal fields, a stronghold of the small progressive mine workers union (Ind.), which is not on strike. The association of American railroads reported that several coal- carrying lines had been forced virtually to suspend operations to and from mines. Once empty coal cars have been delivered to the mines, there is little for these lines to do except to haul the limited supplies of coal held at the mines. There has. however, been no curtailment of normal passenger and general freight service, the association added. It said railroads had a considerable supply of fuel on hand and that it had .received no information indicating ''service would be curtailed any time soon. The government was "said to be awaiting an "opportune moment" to submit compromise proposals for breaking the deadlocked negotiations. ' Anderson INSURANCE Phone 810 21 OS.

This is the estimate of experts n the state Agricultural Extension Service. Slightly more than a month ago there wore close to 3511.000 bales "lill to be picked from last years' crop but the effort of the producers :o gel the crop oul before lhc new one wns to bo planted cul Ihe loss to around 3 per cent or less, the extension service estimated. The Dcmcebcr forecast on the 1945 crop was about 1,080.000 bales. The delta regions of easlprn Ar- itnnsns will suffer most from the late season loss because many acres are locked in behind wnler where it Is difficult to get the crop out. In some of the delta sections the crop has been picked ^ivcr and still may yield some cotton for the ginncrs. The April 26 report of the United Stales crop reporting service will show the actual results of the 194") season. In advance of this the slale ex tension service authorities arc cautioning farmers lo hold off for a while on the planting of the 1946 crop. The shortage of seed they say, is an important mailer lo consider. Normally lhc. planting .season runs from April 15 to May 15 but the extension service is urging lhal Ihe slarl on planting be delayed until the latter part .of April. o Veteran Takes His Baby to School — But It's No Go Madison, Wis. .April 4 — (/P) — Waller Slimplo's cxpcrir-.cnt of hiking his infant son to class at the University of Wisconsin approved by :i professor was a howling success bul il didn't work out.

G'lLROY, D.D. Who were the friends of Jesus? First of all, the children, whom ie took up in His arms and bles- ed. The Disciples, with those 'also notions that n'.any religious people have had about the young, vere going lo send away the women who brought their children, rebuking them, for troubling the Master. But the Master was "much pleased". It was the Disciples vho were rebuked; and the world vas given that beautiful and revealed picture of Jesus surrounded jy the children, with the reminder .hat childlikeness is essential for those who would enter the kingdom of heaven. Then, the Disciples themselves, already with Him and in His company—the men from fishing boats, "rom customs houses, and from )ther lowly places and walks of ife ,to whom Jesus said, '.'Lhave not called you servants, for the servant knoweth not what his .ord doeth, but I have called you friends." The great, also—men in authpr- ly, like Ihe Roman cenlurion whose faith He recommended; Nicodemus, the ruler of the Jews, who came to Him by night; Joseph of Arimalhea, who claimed His body and gave il burial; the wealthy who invited Him to their homes and made for Him a feast, like Simon, the Pharisee, whose hospitality He accepted, but whom He lovingly rebuked. He befriended, too, the sick and the needy, the common people who "heard Him gladly." The multitudes who followed Him for the loaves and fishes. He loved them all, and they were all His friends. And He accepted Ihe sinners, Ihose publicly recognized as sinners, men and women of ill re- pule who earneslly longed lo become more worlhy, and who weic already worthier than the hypocrites who despised and condemned them.

"I have a natural filial regard for my mother," Mrs. Stokowski said in a statement distributed at "Our present difference is not, on my part, one based on money." Mrs. Stokowski recently ler- minated a 821,000 yearly allowance to her mother and suggested she find a job. She said she would' use the money to aid "blind children and to help teed children who are homeless and starving in many countries," Her statement also said: "My present difference with my mother can and will be resolved.

This country meanwhile has reduced its military garrison in Iceland from « wartime strength of roughly 40,000 men to a heretofore undisclosed figure of about 800, according to informed sources. These troops were stationed there under a special wartime agreement which will expire when the war is declared officially lo be over. The U. S. wants to replace this agreement wilh a long-range one.

Washburn Army Day Reminder Violence Never Sleeps America today celebrates Army Dny—and the echoes of war still thundering across Europe nnd Asia give us a better appreciation of ,Vj|ne Army than we get in the easy years ol a long peace. We never know the strength of a dyke until Hie river conies tumbling down on the lowlands—and the Army is seldom appreciated until an enemy draws a gun on us, proving the lolly of debate. Never has America come closer to disaster than in the war just closed. At one point the German war machine held all Europe, overawed Russia, and stood on the sands of Kgypt knocking at the , tjatcs of the buez Canal. Had Egypt <& alien—hud General Montgomery and his American aides failed to throw buck Marshal Rommel at that critical hour, all Africa would have been lost; Asia would have been cut off irom Europt; the British might have had to surrender—and America would have been left to light alone against an enemy then bui l.got) miles from Soutn America. America is great and powerful— but it was our Army tnat translated that power into saving ac- f lion. Before now many a ricn and powerful nation has been overwhelmed simply because it was technically unprepared for war. Carthage was the axamplc of old. i^i Today we have a still better cxam- |i pie—France. It did not happen here. Let us resolve, this Army Day, never to let it come even close. •* •¥• * . By JAMES THRASHER Call to Honorable Arms April 6 is Army Day, when the United States pays its annual tri- Jnile to the great military organi- ./ation to which it owes, in such large part, the freedom it enjoys today. There will be parades and speeches and enthusiatic hurrahs ior Gl Joe. We like -a parade, a rally, or an oration as much, we IhiriK, as docs any other American. But we can't help feeling that this year the celebration should be marked by serious and responsible thought as well as by eficrvescenl emotion. JFor 1946 is a year of crisis— a year which may well shape the i^stinics of us all for generations to come. After four seemingly endless years of war, we enjoy peace. But we face perhaps a harder battle to maintain that peace than we were compelled to undergo to win it. And we face it, moreover, with not the faintest resemblance of the unity and clarity which car- acle ! zcd our war effort. As a result, we have not at present an Army sufficiently strong and sufficiently aggressive to win for us ( toe current struggle for survival. The national commitments, occu: pational and otherwise, in the pros* edition of which the American Army is now so intensively engaged arc irrevocable and all-important; our success with them may well determine whothsr the cream of our youth will ever again be required to extinguish with Us blood the blaze of a foreign conqueror. So, loo, may our wisdom in refusing now to relinquish the position of world leadership which we acquired only by the force of $\r arms, and which we can retain .largely by retaining our martial power. Congress has permitted the Army to dwindle from overwhelming authority to frightening weakness by rapid and seemingly uncontrolled demobilization. And it has not provided cssenlail replacements, either by the enactment of universal military training or by an appreciable extension of the draft, now scheduled to expire May 15. The issue is, therefore, squarely i\n to American youth. They can yut mold the national destiny and spare the world the limitless devastation of still another armed conflict. By enlisting now in sufficient numbers, they can earn the undying gratitude of generations yet unborn. Army life has never been well fitted to the individualistic American character. Today, no less than ever before, it offers a challenge. But successive generations of our men have met that challenge; and because they have, we walk as f.^c citizens of a free country. Our Army offers the highest pay, the finest food and quarters, the best medical treatment, the most appealing jobs ever provided by a military organization. It offers, too, the pride of membership in a team which has never been beaten, the self-respect which comes from participation in a vilal task, the op- porunily to receive Ihc thanks of a grateful nation and of a war- weary world. We hope the young men of the Uuited Stales— and their mothers u.ki fathers, their senators and congressmen—will think about these things on Army Day, 194G. o Howard Hughes to Be Eligible for 1946 Razorbacks Faycltcvillc, April 6—(/P)—Cheered by news thai quarterback Howard Hughes will be eligible for I,.,. thft 1946 Grid campaign, the Uni|<» I verily of Arkansas Ra/orbacks today prepared to wind up the ncsl lo lasl full week of spring practice in a rugged scrimmage session.

PRICE 5c COPY ' Keifel Admits Signing of Death Order By ANN STRINGER Nuernberg, April G —(UP) — Field Marshal Wilhelm Kcilol admitted under fiery Russian questioning today that he had ordered the indiscriminate murder of Soviet prisoners, women and children. The former German chief of staff hedged, cringed and quibbled while Gen. Roman Rudenko, cross- examining in a fire and brimstone manner, pinned him down on German orders concerning partisan activities. "Do you remember an order authorizing the crudest measures because human life cost absolutely nothing in eastern territories?" Rudenko asked. "Yes," Kcilel replied. "You signed this order?" Again Kcilel said, "yes." Rudenko asked, "you considered it correct and apt?" "Yes," Keilcl replied. ''II was well known fact lhat lives were not respected in eastern and Soviet territories." The Soviet prosecutor quoted another order which stated that "troops have the right and are obligated to lake any measures wilh- oul restriction against women and children." "That is correct," Kcitcl said. "You consider Ihis order righl?" "Yes, Bul of course no German soldier and no German officer ever thought of killing women and children." To thai Rudenko said, "there were such cases. Millions of them." Keitcl replied, "I do not believe lhat." A report by Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, the latfi Gorman inlclli- gcncc chieftain, protesting againsl Ihe mass killings of Russian prisoners was mentioned by Rudenko. He asked Kcilel if he agreed wilh the Canaris report. Keitel answered, "I shared his views." Rudenko then submited to the war crimes tribunal the original of Ihc Canaris report, on which Keilel had written a marginal note. This note to Canaries said, "These suggestions arc according to your soldier's view of the conception of conducting a war as a knight, bul do nol fit in wirh the new idea of this new war. Therefore I approve such measures and I stand behind them." Keilel admitted that he had written il. "Then," said Rudenko, "You who were called Field Marshal, who called himself a soldier, you by your own bloody resolution in 1941, you approved and sanctioned the murder of defenseless unarmed soldiers taken by you as prisoners." Keitel answered, "I signed those decrees and I assume the responsibility." "Is il in accordance with the creed of a soldier to issue such orders on prisoners of war and the civilian population?" Keitel shouted, "Yes, as *ar as reprisals arc concerned, during August and September when we heard what happened to German soldiers in battle, when we found hundreds of them lying in heaps murdered." Here Rudenko hastily interrupted, "enough of this, Defendant Keilel. You may talk about murdered German prisoners of war, but you and I know, and you have admitted, thai before the war—in May, 1941— you signed a directive concerning the shooting of Soviet prisoners." "Yes, I signed il before the war," Keitel said. "Bul also it didn't contain the word murder." Keitel repeated under Rudenko's relentless questioning lhal he blindly followed Adolf Hitler. He shouted "I was n loyal and obedient soldier lo my Fuehrer. I do not think thai there is a soldier in Soviet Russia who would not obey Marshal Sla- lin." Hunger Is as Potent Threat to World Peace Today as Was Hitler, Mackenzie Declares Poland Now Threatens Franco Spain By SANDOR S. KLEIN Now York, April 6 —(UP1— Announcement of Poland's intention to seek action by the United Nations security council against the franco government of Spain today threatened a new controversy between Soviel Russia on Ihe one hand and the United States and Great Britain on the other. A spokesman for Oscar Lange, Poland's delegate on the council, said that instructions had not arrived from Warsaw but thai as soon as they are received the necessary documenls will be filed with U. N. Secretary-General Trygve Lie. This now development came on Ihe heels of a renewed atlack by the Australian delegate on the council's procedure in the Iranian crisis — an alack which may blow off the lid which had been clamped on the case until May 6. Lie's office said thai il had received no official notification of Poland's intention. First word was received by Lie through the United Press while he was holding his regular morning conference with his assistant secretaries - general and it became Ihe subjccl of in formal discussion. Poland's decision lo raise the question of Uniled Nalions relations with the Franco government took the initiative bn this issue away from France, which had originally proposed concerted Big Four action againsl Ihc Madrid regime. Bolh Great Britain and the United Stales opposed the French proposal and France has since made litllc effort to push it. Soviet Russia, however , endorsed the idea. Fly time is sneaking up on us— and father's handiwork is going to get a screen te:>t. By DeWITT MacKENZIE AH Foreign Affairs Analyst There is a hidden threat in the world food shortage which is mis- loading a good many folk in the western hemisphere as Ihcy endeavor lo estimate the dangers involved. We know that thousands are dying in the Orient from hunger. This is concrete evidence and loaves no doubt about the gravity of the position in that part of the globe. But Ihe facl lhal there hasn't been mass starvation in Europe yet is having a lendency lo give the impression thai, after all, the situalion there isn't desperate. Well, we shouldn't let this fool us. Having just returned from several months' tour of Europe, there's no question in my mind about the threat of the all-bul- emply grain bins in many areas. Director La Guardia of the UNNRA says 200,000,000 people face starvalion in Europe alone, and even if you could halve lhat figure it still would justify the editorial assertion- of the London Daily Herald that "as a menace to civilization, hunger today is as potent as was Hitler yeslerday." What we have lo recognize is lhat starvation .i s cumulative. Folks don't die of hunger in a day. My old friend Mahatma Oandhi has staged many hunger-strikes, one of which ran three weeks, and he still is doing business at the old stand. 'And the process of starva- lion is much slower if even a email amount of nourishment is available. That's what is happening in some parts of Europe. People arc existing on the resistance they piled up in easier times—like hibernating woodchucks living on their "fat". But daily that resistance is de- creasing and moving more rapidly towards the poinl of doalh by starvation. Actually, of course, there have been innumerable deaths already due directly or indirectly to malnutrition. And Mr. La Guardia tells us that "unless we can ship large supplies of wheat for delivery this month in Europe, there will be mass starvation deaths in Poland, Yugoslavia, Greece and Italy." The position is bad, to, in Austria, Germany, France and Holland. . There is, of course, one unnecessary evil which is contributing to Europe's hunger, as I pointed out in Thursday's column, and that is the black-market which makes profits on food while babies starve. I remarked wo have the right to assurance that our food contributions won't fall in lo the hands of the racketeers, and it was good to see Director La Guardia issue his warning that nations receiving UNRRA relief must stamp out black markets. Austria has had a break of luck, in the Soviet Union's withdrawal of most of its demand for land which the Austrians needed for food growing in the Russian occupied zone. The Muscovites had claimed some 125,000 acres and this has now been cul to 50,000. That will be a Godsend to Austria, because when 1 was there three weeks ago many people in thai zone were living on 700 calories a day—about one third the minimum nourishment needed to maintain health. ; Reverting to the Daily Herald's assertion thai hunger is as potent a menace lo civilization as was Hitler, it requires little imagination lo recognize Ihe truth of this statement. If Europe arrived at mass starvation, we should see a loosing of passions which would know no limits. Draft Law Threatened by New Plan Washington, April G —(/P)— The House Military committee flabbergasted the army today with this painless formula for continuing the draft—extend the law another year but ban induction of anyone becoming eligible during that period. This novel proposal, which quickly attracted formidable support, was advanced as the nation stood by the near President Truman's Army Day address in .Chicago which is expected to carry' a renewed appeal for straightaway extension of Selective Service another year. The no-induction measure was of fered by Rep. Harness (R-Ind) yesterday as a substitute for an Army- backed bill calling for continuing the draft under existing conditions for a year beyond its May 15 expiration date, but with service liability limited to 18 months. The Harness proposal, as amended, would require continued registrations under the Selective Service Act, but limit inductions after May 15 exclusively to those who became eligible for service prior to lhat date, such as deferred students and others. Committee mtmbers opposing the draft promptly lined up behind this formula and only a parliamentary situation prevented it coming to a vote at the session. The commitee put off a decision until next Tuesday, and opponents of the Harness plan remarked it was just as well, for they ieared they lacked the voles to block it yesterday. There was little objection in the committee to a proposal limiting service of inductees to 18 months and requiring their release upon complettion of that period of duty, regardless of when they were drafted. To further complicate maters, the committee voted 10 to 3 against raising the draft age minimum from 18 tp 20 years, and banned the induction of fathers and farmers. Harness acknowledged to reporters that the purpose of his proposal was to stop inductions when the present law expires. He said he was unconvinced that the army could not fill its manpower requirements of 1,070,000 men on July 1, 1947, without the draft. Boy, 12, Killed in Truck-Train Crash at Hartman, Ark. Hartman, April 6 —(/P)— A train- truck collision here yesterday claimed the life of 12-year-old Otis Morrow, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lee Morrow of Hartman. The youth was riding in Ihe rear of a truck driven by his falhcr when the train rrashcd into il. Two other boys leaped to saftly. Young Morrow's sisier, Inez, was laken to a Clarksville hospital.

Miners Spurn Offer by Government By United Press The threat of a coal shortage was aggravated today as leaders of 400,000 striking coal miners rejected a proposal to end the walkout and let the government write a new union contract. President John L. Lewis of the United Mine Workers, (AFL) was disclosed to have rejected the suggestion to permit a government board to draft a new contract with the mine operators/ 'Little '• hope was seen of an immediate setle- ment as the strike entered its ivth day. More than 700,000 workers were idle in reconversion strikes and shutdowns. The major developments: 1. The Senate approved a 65- cent national minimum hourly wage. The wage bill, which must be approved by the House, would raise the minimum hourly pay of 2,260,000 workers from the present 40-cent level. 2. Approximately 135,000 auto workers were idle because of a strike of 113 truck drirvers against the Briggs Manufacturing Company, Detroit, and partial shutdowns at General Motors and Ford Motor Corp. 3. Detroit's Mayor Edward J. Jeffries, Jr., proposed restoration of jitney service as the city's trans- day. 4. Conciliation conferences intended lo avert a threatened strike againsl Ihe Cincinnati, O., Gas & Electric Co., were recessed on reports thai the walkout would not begin before Sunday. 5. Striking tugboat workers set up picket lines which tied up the port of Philadelphia. B. Federal conciliators were hopeful thai Ihe slrike of 30,000 em- ployes of International Harvester Co. would be settled today. The company and the Uniled Farm Equipment Workers, (CIO), have agreed on mosl issues, including an 18-cent hourly wage increase, and were meeting to write a new contract. The coal dispute has closed the nation's soft coal mines for six days and forced sharp curtailment of steel and auto produclion. Edward R. Burke, president of Ihe southern coal producers' association, said lhal Lewis "brushed aside with scorn" a compromise plan offered by the industry at a closed bargaining conference. Burke charged thai Lewis deliberately was stalling because he did not think the time was ripe to starl serious negotiations lo end the walkout, called over union demands for new safety regulations and health benefits. At Detroit, truck drivers belonging to the CIO auto workers union reportedly struck against Briggs, manufacturer of auto bodies, over seniority provisions of a new eon- tract. Briggs sent home 12,000 production workers and Chrysler laid off 2,500 al the Plymouth plant and 2,000 at Kerehcval. Two thousand more were to be sent homo. Negotiations between the City of Detroit and the Amalgamated Association of Street Electric and railway employes (AFL) were resumed in an effort to halt a strike by 5,200 workers. Mayor Jeffries proposed restoration of jitney service, outlawed in Detroit 15 years ago, as a "stopgap" measure. Restoration of jitneys would permit owners of private automobiles to charge fares for hauling passengers. ATTORNEY SUSPENDED Newport, April 6 —(/P>— Attorney J. Fred Paris of Newport, has been suspended from practicing law for eight'months on charges of violating the code of ethics laid down by the American Bar Association.

Wage Bill, Farm Rider, to Face Veto By JOHN L. « Was CUTTER ashington, April 6 —(UP) — Senate administration leaders looked lo the House today lo salvage the battered 05-cent minimum wage bill from an almost certain presidential veto. \- Ignoring President Truman's veto threat, the Senate bowed to a farm stale coalilion and drove through Ihe bill slill carrying a Tider providing for. an across-the- board hike in farm prices. ; The final bill, which promptly Was dubbed a "legislative Cadaver" by some members, would increase the national minimum wage from 40 lo 65 cenls an hour. Bul it also would require the government to consider farm labor costs in figuring support prices. Jt was lhat latler provision which last week prompted Mr. Truman to inform the Senate that he would be forced to veto the bill unless it were removed. .•The rebellious Senate went ahead and wrote the amendment into the bill anyway. Then, as if to punctuate its action, it reaffirmed its decision in a second vote. ' Nevertheless, Senate Democratic Leader Alben W. Barkley, D., Ky., said there still was hope that a veto could be averted if the House redrafted the measure to take out the parity amendment. 'The bill then would have to go to a conference committee of the two hope that the Senate conferees houses where there would be some could be persuaded to retreat from tnir position. That hope was minimized, however, by the fact that the House in the past has approved similar leg- islalion and will be more likely to endorse Ihe Senale's aclion than reverse it. That would mean a sure veto for the measure. Farm state senators said the parity amendment was necessary to give farmers equal treatment with industrial workers who recently have been granted substantial wage increases. Mr. Truman's opposition was based on the arguments of administration spokesmen who said the amendment would add $125 a year '- "-- average family's food to , the budget.

Geisha Girl's Tip Gives 2 Billions in Jap Gold to U. S. A. U. S. Presses Small-Enemy Treaty Plans By ALEX H. SINGLETON ; Washington, April 6 —(/P)— The United States, putting the American tempo into diplomacy, pressed loday for a speed-up in final peace settlements with five of Germany's vanquished satellites. Secretary of Slale Byrnes 'took the initialive in seeking an early end lo Ihe uncerlainity which surrounds the figures of Italy, Finland, Hungary, Rumania and Bulgaria—ar/ which may be contributing to European unrest. He appealed to the foreign 'ministers ot Britain, France and Russia to join him in Paris April 25 for a special council meeting dedicated to resolving the major differences which still exist between the powers on the terms to be imposed on these Axis allies. Apparently tired but obviously buoyed by his accomplishments at the United Nations Security Council, Byrnes withheld his new move until assured that the international slate would be wiped clean of the critical dispute over Iran. To Foreign Ministers Molotove of Russia, Bevin of Britain and Di- daull of France, Byrnes bluntly wrote "I have been much distressed at the slow progress made by the deputies" named six months ago to carry on the preliminary treaty-framing work in London. The April 25 date •which Byrnes proposed in his surprise appeal is five days prior to the scheduled Paris conference which is to bring together the 21 western allies powers to pass on peace pacts for the little Axis nations. But it has been accepted generally that such a meeting., could or would accomplish little unless Britain, France, Russia and .the United Stales first reach • agreement among themselves upon the treaty terms to be submitted to the May 1 conference. Thus far, Byrnes has received no replies to his proposal. The State Department said however, that the message, dated April 4 ,had only just reached the other three capitals. The fact thai it was made public before answers arrived carried some significance, for it would have the effect of drawing international public atention to the American move. Some of the major stumbling blocks in the preliminary treaty- framing work have been the still unsettled questions regarding future disposition of Italy's African colonies, reparations, and setle- menl of the Yugoslav-Italian frontier dispute in Istria. Presumably, these are among the "major mailers" which Byrnes disclosed he had suggesled be laken up al Ihe Paris meeling. REMOVE TEMPTATION • Salt Lake City, April 6 —(£>)— A downtown Jewelry shop, after a series of burglaries, placed this sign in its window: "To discourage crime, we have only a limited night display in our windows." -® By FRANK L. WHITE <•> Tokyo, April 6 — (/Pj— A geisha Jirl's lip led today to discovery of .wo truckloads of precious melals ingols believed worth 30,000,000,000 yen ($2,000,000,000) in the mud of Tokyo Bay. An informant said he had been .old by Japanese army officers the money was lo be used "in building up -a greater Japan after things have quieted down." The ingots were located by Lt. E. V. Nielsen, Stamford, Conn., an officer in the 32nd Military Government Company. The original tip came, Nielsen Hal Boyle, in Athens, Meets an Old-Time Friend, Former Kansas City Cafe Proprietor By HAL BOYLE Alhens, April 6 — (/P)— A knocked on my holel door and for knocked on my holel dor and for a half hour gave me back my faraway childhood. When he first came in, he slood there sharing with me that lost helpless feeling Iwo people have when they meet and have no sense of recognition and yet feel they should know one another. He was a middle-aged man of medium height with prematurely wnite hair. Ho had a slight, dark moustache. His face wore an air of puzzlement. In his hands he held a cable from his son in Missouri saying I was in Athens and was an old acquaintance and he should look me up. I looked uncertainly al Charley ouncs across Ihe space of my small holel room and he looked back at me — and the space be- twecn us was bigger than any holel room. "I lived almosl 25 years in America," he said hesitantly. "Where Charley?" "In Kansas City — I had a restaurant with my partner at 31st Street and Woodland." That broke the dike of memory. Each cily boy's life is buill around a street corner just as oases and social centers of deserts — and for more than a decade in springtime of my life 31st and Woodland in Kansas Cily, Mo., was the capital of my world. "1 remember you now, Charley," I said. He said he recalled me to. but I doubt it because there was no reason he should. Charley and his partner. Mike Ventros (now at 3152 ®- |Trost Ave.) used to operate i colonial lunch" when I used tn stand on lhat corner almost 25 years ago. It was a warm and wonderful place to crawl into on blustery Sat- urday nights, when the wind was chill. Customers were few and Sunday morning papers were heavy. Chili was 15 cents worth of steaming heaven, but I was looking toward college and only had a dime to spend. Charley and Mike always brought a bowl to me full and overflowing with meat and beans, nevertheless, and I gratefully remember those two Greeks more than I do Pericles and Socrates, whom I read about in school. Mike is still in Kansas City. Charley who emigrated to America from Arcady in 1907 at Ihe age of 15 returned to Greece in 1931. "Business was slow, and I thought il was lhc besl lime to come back for a visit," he said. His wife fell ill, and he has be in Alhens ever since. When Ihe Germans came Charley's small and since then he has traveled rocky road. His savings have melted slowly. Charley wants, if his wifes health permits, to come this summer to Kansas City where his s o n. Aristides, is studying English and teaching Greek at the Greek Orthodox church. He wants to renew nis old neighborhood acquaintain- in they look over restaurant here, with Mr. Hammer, the Shoemaker, and "Pop" ctship Jewish rludson, the druggist, still doing justness al Ihe old slands. "America is the only land," he said when I took him out to lunch two days later. During the war he jsed lo risk Ihe dealh penally by .lining his radio lo lhc American station at Algiers to listen to big eague baseball scores .and speeches by President Roosevelt, often staying up until 3 a.m. to get pro- rams. "What has happened to Will Rogers lately?" he asked. "I used to like to read his stuff. He was a .'eal funny man." said, from a geisha girl. She told a Japanese employed by a civilian interpreter for the military government that a large sum of gold had been dumped in Tokyo Bay. Nielsen said developments indicated her story was a planted tip. Investigalion showed the girl's story came from a small social club composed of elderly Japanese small shopkeepers and businessmen. "Finally," Nielson said, "one of the social group told me that 'because the militarists had been the ruination of Japan we didn't want them to get hold of the huge supply of precious metals.' He said he trusted the Americans and for that reason would tell the whereabouts of a laborer who worked in dumping ingots into the bay." The laborer designated a dock at a former Japanese maritime school on the Tokyo waterfront now used as a boat slip by U. S. First Cavalry personnel. Neilsen brought up Ihe first ingot weighing 75 pounds. It tentatively was idenlified by bank of Japan officers as plalinum. "I slripped and went down into about six feel of wafer and there in three or four feet of mud I could feel two areas, each about 20 by 20 feet square, which seemed to be payed with these blocks," Nielsey. said. The spokesman for the social group told the American officer that the laborer had come to members of the group'in fear of death and was being hidden by them .It was upon assurance by Nielsen that the laborer would be protected that he was produced and told this story: "Sometime in the latter part of July, 1945, with other laborers ] was ordered to meet a. group^p) officers near the marilfme school We were told by the. officers that we were to help unload some trucks. These trucks were driven onto the dock where covers were taken off. We were informed the trucks were loaded wilh steel in- gols that were being disposed of. "While we were lifting Ihe heavy ingots out of the truck and dumping them into the water, one of my companions scratched the heavy paint Which covered the bars and discovered it was gold. "He started to tell some olhers about it and was overheard by one of the officers. The officer callec us all together and told us we would lose our lives if w e evei mentioned what we were doing." Nielsen said the laborer informed him it took some time to dump Ihe thousands of bars and that during the operation he overheard the officers talking about the gold, silver hamd platinum. He heard them estimale Ihe value al 30 billion yen. The laborer finally lold the social group aboul it. The geisha girl in turn learned of the metals from the group members and thought they were the ones hiding il. "However," Nielsen said. "it seems the social group members merely were 'debating to whom to take the information and readily talked when I talked to them." CapU William Swope, Sr., of the engineer outfil working on the diving operation, said he had felt the cache oni Ihe bay botlom and it was Ihe "damndest thing I ever saw."
