By STANLEY W. ATKINS Birmingham, Ala., April 4 — WPr— . Big, bluff Frank Snyder, Birmingham Baron manager, is sure of one thing; he wouldn't be satisfied with another second division club. Snyder got his taste for victory while catching for John McGraw and the New York Giants back in *.he early '20's, when he played in 'our world series. In his six seasons as a manager, spread out over almost two de- :ades, the tall Texan has won tsvo pennants. Snyder is one of baseball's real old-timers. He played semi-pro ball n 1910 as a youngster of 17. Four years later he was good enough to catch 100 games for St. Louis of the nationals, and he stayed with the predecessors of the gas house gang until 1919, when McGraw acquired him in a mid-season trade. Snyder turned to the managerial -•anks in 1928 and came up with a champion at Houston. He finished n the second division the follow- ng season, but shifted to Fort Worth in 1930 and again snared a pennant. He went back to the Giants in 1931 as a coach under Bill Terry, remaining until he took over the managership of Jersey City of the nternational in 1941. The club fin- shed in the second division during jolh his seasons there and he stepped out of baseball until general Manager Paul Florence signed lim ; as Baron manager last year. A hustler, Snyder 'is' considered by some as one of the best managers the..Barons have had since Clyde Milan left in the early '30's. New York. April C —(/P)— When Ihe Ohio Stale foolball coaches' association stages an all-star game to cap an eight-day coaching school next August ,the lop men of the two teams will be Ohio Slate's Paul Bixler and Noire Dame's Frank Leahy. . .

The Dodgers and Yankees will put on a "Philippine Day" at next Saturday's exhibition at Ebbets field — a change from the Mexican neights that have been lauging Branch Rickey. Part of the dough will go toward rebuilding Jesuit schools, hospitals and churches in the Philippines.

His brother Frank won the Ccnlral Collegegiale conference half mile run when he was at Notre Dame and another brother, Eddie, was captain of baseball and track al Scl on Hall College. . .

CHank) Greenberg, snapped put .of his hitting -,^<-» ~ Salary;' today to the relief of both Manager Steve O'Neill and owner Walter O. Briggs of the Detroit Tigers. During that span, Greenberg has walloped four home runs, his total production to date this spring; two doubles and five singles in 20 times at bat for a .550 average which has brought a sigh of relief from O'Neil. Big Hank, now back at first base or the world champions, made :hree official trips to the plate yesterday and socked a home run, double and single to drive in four runs and give the Tigers their :ifth straight victory over the Boston Braves, 5 to 3, at Montgomery, Ala. Shooting for their six straight over the national leaguers, the Tigers sent Virgil (Fire )Trucks, a native of Birmingham , to the mound today against the Braves' Johnny Fain and Ken Reid, another Birmingham boy. Dickey Back In Action Dallas, Tex., April 5 — (UP) — Big Bill Dickey donned mask and mit again today, after recovering from a broken toe injury, to add his aat power to the New York Yankees' record home run production. Dickey returned from his Little Rock home yesterday, where he lad been resting, to catch six innings as the Yankees routed Dallas of the Texas league, 11 to 3. The Bronx Bombers boosted their home run total for the spring season to 41 as Joe Dimaggio cracked his 16th homer, Charley Keeler his 10th and Oscar Grimes his first.

No Elopment for Bartholomew, But a Formal Wedding Las Vegas ,Nev., April 5 — (#>)— There will be no elopement for Freddie Bartholomew, 22-year-old actor, and his twice-married press agent-fiancee, Maely Danielc His aunt, Myllicent Bartholomew, intervened at the last minute •and suggested, instead, an elaborate Hollywood wedding two months hence. Shortly after she obtained a divorce yesterday from Michael Stolzberg, New York Atorney, Miss Daniele told friends she expected to be married today to the former little Lord Fauntlcroy of the screen. Later young Freddie and his aunt flew here from Hollywood, talked things over and agreed a Hollywood wedding later would be better. "She didn't want us to elope, so we will do things her way," said J? reddie. "But we're definitely going to be married." "Yes, we arc," chimed in Miss JJamele, several years the actor's senior, who met him when he was acting in "Candida" for a little theater group.

The department said the money was part of $180,000 stolen by a former post office employe, who the department said confessed before he died August 10, 1944. It saicl the case involved the biggest money theft in postal history. Chief Inspector James J. Doran, asserting that discovery of the $153,150 solved the case, related that three inspectors who had been ordered to retrace every step in the Iwo-vear hunt for ha missing money found it in two tin cans and two glass jars, scaled with parafin and enclosed in two lengths of stove pipe. o Yugoslavs Won't Let Yanks Testify for Mihailovic Belgrade, April 5 — (#•)— Yugoslavia refused today u United States request to allow American officers to testify at the forthcoming trial of Gen. Draja Mihailovic, recently captured Chetnik chieftain who was among the first resistance leaders in Europe. Belgrade newspapers devoted almost their entire first pages to publication of the United States note and the Yugoslav refual. The lengthy Yugoslav answer began With a refusal and ended with the assertion that "full justice will be done at the trial." New Highway Will Cross Norfork Dam Lille Rock-, April 5 —(/P) A 37 mile route on U. S. highway 02 to | encircle Norfork Lake and run atop the Norfork darn will be included I in the highway development program for North Arkansas, governor Laney said today. The route will be constructed in actual work on the job was indc- lake at the site ot the ferry now operated by the Highway Department and will provide one ot the most beautiful scenic drives in the midwest, Laney said. He said that probably the ferry would continue to be maintained as a "short route" for the benefit of Baxter county's residents who live east of .the lake. Laney asserted the Highway Department had $1,200,000 which probably would be used in connection with development of the loop. The sum was derived from reimbursements by the federal government for the old highway bridge which was submerged when the lake was formed. He emphasized that construction of the loop still was in the planning stage and that lieu of a bridge spanning the finite. He stated that Baxter County interests generally were agreeable to construction of a loop in place of the bridge. Governor Laney predicted that north Arkansas has a real future in the next few years" 'in the tourist and beef cattle industries. Returning from « week 10112 tour of north and northeast Arkansas Laney said that a boom already was in evidence in Baxter and adjoining counties as the result of Norfork clam and the construction of the Bull Shoals clam. He said many state residents who had been attracted by the clam's boom had purchased property in the area and were "putting their roots down" as small farmers and stockmen. The tourist and recreational possibilities of the Norfork and Bull Shoals region are unlimited and exploitation of these facilities will "bring hundreds of thousands o£ dollars" into that section, Laney said. He disclosed that "some large industrial firms in the north and cast had surveyed the Norfork - Bull bhoals area for establishment of exclusive, recreational faciWios for their employes. He did not identify the companies other than they were "large oil, rubber and similar firms." OFFICER DECORATED Washington, April 5 — (IP)— Col Herman O.

Bul loo little is spent that way. Too much ot Inc public tax lunds is frittered away in duplication of offices and .* duplicated aumimslralive areas U One specific Hem Ihe AKPC takes up in this scries is the question ot consolidating sonic ol Arkansas' 7a counties. There arc instances where a county has less than 10,OUU population— a piece ol geography with fewer people than liopc has trying lo support, all by itself, the mil complement oi county otficials as prescribed by present constitutional law. Tiiero arc other Herns, loo. 'Ihe •thoughuul citizen should read this series carefully. The is- j, sues il is now bringing up will be J> heard from in Ine monlhs lo come. -X * * By JAMES THRASHER Belligerent Peace-Making II is easy lo point oul discrepancies between Prime Minister btalin's mild and encouraging slatc- inenl on world peace and Ihe external appearance of Russian foreign policy. II is easy to say thai "Ihc principle of cqualily of slates" in the UiMO, which Mr. Stalin cited as t Ihe source of Unilcd Nations 7 •' strength, is contradicted in the Security Council by the Big Five and their veto power, which Hussia insistently demanded and won. It can be suggested thai the "cuirenl fear oi. war" was not solely the product of anil-Russian propagandists. It can be argued thai frankness, co-operation, and exemplary political behavior among world governments is a bctlcr means of securing Ihc peace than is Ihe counter-propaganda , againsl war mongers which Mr. f) Slalin .suggested. Bul lo advance Ihcsc arguments would bo lo accomplish noliilng ex- cepl the crcalion of new doubts and suspicions. It seems to us that it is more intelligent lo take Mr. Slulins heartening opinions at their face value. In the first place, Prime Min- isler Stalin is the man who calls Ihe signals in Russia. When he speaks, the world "lislens lo the voice of Soviet policy. The policy changes sharply from time lo lime, but the voice retains ils } authority. Secondly, Mr. Slalin has pul himself on record in \ unequivocal fashion with his forthright reply to the qucslions of an American correspondent. He surely realizes that the world will hold him accountable now for any dcvUilion from his proclamation of faith in the Unilcrl Nations. What, then, arc we lo make of all the Hussian sabcrraltling, of Ihe disturbing Hussian activity in Iran und Manchuria, of Mr. Stalin's thunderous "campaign >' speech" a few weeks ago, of Ihe many examples of evidenl reluctance which have marked Russia's past parlicipalion in ine UNO? The only ready explanation would seem lo be lhal Russia is delcrmined lo work for international peace and security in the most belligerent manner possible. It may be thai she has rneanl all •along to Kive ground where the non-Hussian world has held her policies to be wrong and dangor- , ous, but that she. has contrived to -* do it. in such a manner us to make it seem that she is making a magnanimous ;;<;.slire after being grievously misunderstood, pul upon, and conspired against. Where other governments lake a step toward world security with a positive show of good will, perhaps the USSR, with the old wounds of slights and suspicions still smarting beneath the armor of her present military might, has seen fit lo lake the same step only after some fearsome ora- •. lory and sword-waving. "* Ail this is conjecture, and perhaps illogical. But it must seem about as logical lo the average non-Hussian mind as do some of the recent inconsistencies of Soviet foreign policy. We hope devoutly thai the conjecture is true, and that, for Ihc sake of Ihe world's peace of mind, Russia will labor in Ihe future toward the common goal of peace withoul so many offstage alarums and excursions. j 7-Day-Old Dairy Strike Comes to End in Memphis Memphis, Tcmi., April li —(UP) — Fi-eMi milk poured into Memphis again today, bringing an end to the seven-day old milk strike.

Farm and Labor Leaders in Secret Meeting Plan Third Party for 1948 Election By ALFRED LEECH' Chicago, April 8 —(UP)— The possibility ot a split in Democratic party ranks developed today with the announcement that Progressive Farm and Labor leaders mot secretly here during the weekend to discuss formation of a Third Party. ; A spokesman for the group said representatives from 16 states met here to discuss "the possibilities for independent progressive political action" in the 1948 national election. The-group was composed 75 farm; labor and progressive leaders. The 'meetings were held in secrecy, an announcement said, because many of those attending were here only as individuals and not representatives of their various organizations. The announcement disclosed that some were members ,of the Political Action Commilcc. A provisional national committee was established, headed temporarily by A. Philip Randolph, president of the Brother hood of Sleeping Car Porters, (AFL). The meeting was called by Randolph, who was a leader in the campaign for establishment of the Fair Employment Practices Commission. Other initialing the conferences were John Dcwey, professor Emeritus of Columbia University, James Patton, president of the National Farmers Union , Simeon Martin, president of the Michigan Farmers Union, H. L. Mitchell, president of the National Farm Labor Union, and Samuel Wolchak, president of the United Retail Wholesale and Department Store Employes (CIO). It was learned that Randolph and Patton sent a letter to Progressive leaders some time ago to Jmcet here at the University ,of 'Chicago International House ^and explore solutions to national problems. Members of the group said privately that an effort had been made to exclude Communits or members of Communist-front 'organizations. "The conference was called;" the announcement said, "for the purpose of discussing alternative courses of political action in the face of shifting political .alignments and the growing intensity. f>t national and political issues. • " "One alternative discussed was a new political party and a provisional national committee, headed temporarily by A. Philip Randolph, was established with the purpose of developing an educational program aimed at that objective." Randolph said the program "aims at rcachin gbeyond '946." "aims at reaching beyond 1946," Members of the group who b,e ; . long to the Poliitcal Action Committee already are committed to support of the Democratic party, in elections this year, it was ex ; plained. ;,: "Wo wish to start an educational campaign that will unite American Progressives behind a Democratic program reaching toward : a fundamental solution of our economic problems," Randolph said. The national committee Will' meet in Detroit May 4 to discuss further plans. Other subjects discussed at the conferences here were: 1. Whether the Political Action Committee has become "the tail of a Communist kite." 2. Russia's emergence as an "imperialist power." 3.

Roosevelt Still Hot Political Issue One Year After His Death By GLAIR JOHNSON Wushir.gou, April 8 — UP) — Franklin Dlano Roosevelt died a year ago this week, but this name and policies still arc the subject of hot political oratory. Dubate about the lute president breaks out frequently in Congress, and political leaders saicl today they expect his program to be an issue in the coming elections. 1-Jousc Democratic Leader Me Corrnack of. Massachusetts contended that Republicans already have injected Mr. Roosevelt's name into the campaign by "trying to smear him" in the investigation of the Pearl Harbor disaster. Republicans hotly denied this. Reps. Kecfe (R-Wis) and Gearhart (It-Calif), members of the Pearl Harbor Investigating Com initiee which reopens its public hearings briefly tomorrow, assert od their only desire is to icll ihc whole story of the sneak Japanese attack. "When the last word is writcn those who cried partisanship in their iniscrablencss will draw their reward in the contempt ol the American people which they so richly deserve," Gearhart said in a reply to McCormacli. ®— Some Republican leaders, who asked not to be named, said that while many of their campaign speakers undoubtedly will assail the administrations of both Mr. Truman and Mr. Roosevelt, party members arc being urged to concentrate their lire on Mr. Truman. One ranking Republican said Ihc Democrats will be the ones to bring up Mr. .Roosevelt's name most frequently. "A lot of Democratic congressmen would like to ride into office on his coattails again," he asserted. Tomorrow's reopening of the Pearl Harbor hearings was ordered to hear additional testimony from Adm. John R. Beardall, naval aide to Mr. Roosevelt, and Adm. Harold It. Stark, chief of naval operations at the iimc of the disaster. Senators Ferguson (R-Mich) and Brcwstcr (R-Moi told reporters they want to follow up a previous witness's assertion that when intercepted Japanese messages were taken to the White House on the night of Dec. ti. 1941, Mr. Roosevelt read them and declared, "This means war." Eisenhower was there), one of the world's ablest soldiers, said he feared the United States was so peace-loving that it will not be re alistic," Eisenhower told the com- mitee. He said thai on one occasion in Germany when he brought up plans for carrying out the Pots dam agreement, Zhukov questioned how long the Americans were going to stay there. Eisenhower said Zhukov complained that the Americans left Europe soon after the close of World War I. Referring to U. S. commitments with our Allies in Europe and Asm Eisenhower said: "We undertook very seriously and soberly to complete these jobs' It seems to me we must just as seriously and soberly assure those people that svo have the power and strength to carry out commitments." Under questioning by Sen. Edwin C. Johnson, D., Colo., an on poncnt of the draft, Eisenhower conceded that 18-year olds do not make good policemen. He said he much preferred 25-year olds for ticklish occupation duties. "Frankly, if you can find a way of solving this without the ISyear- ° lc ?s. I am for it," Eisenhower said. But, he added, "as long as wc depend upon selective All's Well in Iran With Hakimi Out Says Russia By EDWARD V. ROBERTS London, April 8 — (UP) — The official newspaper Pravda explained today that Russia decided :o withdraw her troops from Iran Because Premier Ahmed Ghavam proved his friendship toward the Soviet Union. 1 Pravda's explanation, the first offered by Jlussia for her belated action, ignored the Soviet obligation under the treaty of 1942 to withdraw all Red Army troops by March 2, six months after the war ended. It said the "real reason" soviet troops were in Iran had seen to counteract the anti-Soviet policies of former Prmieer Ebrahim Hakimi. : When Ghavam proved his good intentions, Pravda said, "The possibility arose to solve the question of the evacuation of Soviet troops from Iran." . Pravda editorially reemphasizcd trie Russian campaign to halt U.N. Security Council consideration of they ;• Soviet-Iranian oil deal. It called, the council's .consideration of: the ilranian case to date a violation of its own charter. ; 'The editorial," broadcast by Radio Moscow, referred'at length to the Soviet-Iranian treaty of 1921, which authorized Soviet troops 'to enter Iran if 'Soviet security was threatened from the South. It made no reference to the 1942 treaty Signed by Russia, Britain and Iran. , Hakimi, the editorial said, did all he could tb poison Soviet-Iranian relations until he left office early this year. He and other alleged anti-Russians were blamed with blocking previous Soviet ef- forts'to get Iranian'oil. After Ghavam succeeded Hakimi he convinced Soviet leaders of his desire to "found old neighborly,, relations" with' Russia .Pravda s.ald. Presumably this was done a'fjleast in part during his visit : to Moscow about six weeks ago. Ohce convinced, the Russians began to consider an evacuation. ^Russia never has replied to British and American notes asking why she failed to withdraw her trqpps by the March 2 deadline. - Hakimi also was charged by the Russians with declaring aggressive plans for the Soviet Caucasus, Baku and Soviet Transcaspia. Pravda asserted that the'Secur- ity Council had no grounds for considering the Iranian question. It said there was no threat of any sort to international security involved in negotiations between Russia and Iran. Pravda followed Ambassador Andrei A. Gromyko's protest letter .to the council with an editorial a'Sttfeiling th'at, the Iranian question ha'd been laid before the council in a faulty manner. It said that the council's action "cut directly across the procedure of the organization , . . particularly against article 34.". Article 34 was the same «..^ cited by Gromyko. The ambassador said that under its provisions the council could consider the Iranian situation if it endangered security or international peace. He asserted, however, that no such dariger existed in Iran, so there was no need for further consideration. ' The Pravda editorial praised the Soviet-Iranian agreement, which, Premier Ahmed Gravam disclosed yesterday, gives Russia a majority control of the new joint oil company until 1971. During that 25-year period Russia will hold 51 per cent of the stock to Iran's 49. From 1971 to 1996 the countries will have a 50-50 interest. By JAMES MARLOW Washington, April 8 — (/P)— Harry S. Truman became president one year ago this Friday. It's been a tough year for him. When he went into the White House April 12, 1945, we were at war with Germany and Japan. By mid-August both wars were over. Then this smiling man, zippy, fast-talking, full of confidence that everything would be all right, faced peace. He had a lot to learn. He talked too fast an'd sometimes to casually on the gravest questions. He had to learn to slow up and be more cautious. When peace camd, he' started throwing off wartime controls, depending on advisors to say which should go. His advisors made some, mistakes, bad ones. Forinstance; in takes, bad ones. For instance; in sacking controls over building although building, materials were scarce. Instead of going into needed low-cost homes, the) materials went into other things. Belatedly, the government is putting back the controls. Being a friendly man, Mr. Truman tried to use kid gloves with his old friends in Congress. They've defied him, thwarted him, bottlenecked him. Members of his own Democratic party in Congress, particularly southern Democrats, have harpooned some of his best intentions. He has made more than 25 major proposals to Congress. Congress still is sitting on the majority of them. In desperation, around Christmas time, Mr. Truman . appealed to the public to jog up Congress. Congress refused to be jogged. Any hope he anight have had for . Pravda said that when the Soviet government was convinced thai Ihe Iranian government headed by Ghavam had shown a desire to have good relations between the countires, "the possibility arose to solve Ihe queslion of evacualion of Soviel Iroops from Iran." "So Ihere was all Ihe less reason for Ihe introduction of the Iranian question before the Security Council in New York," Pravda continued. "On March 24, the day before the council opened,, it was announced thai evacualion of Soviet Iroops from Iran had begun. "The Soviel government poinled oul lhal the Iranian question had been faultily presented to Ihe meeling of the Security Counicl." The edilorial asked, "Is il not clear that relalions between the Soviet Union and Iran, about which negotialions were being carried oul belween Ihe Iwo countries, held nothing thai did or could have in Ihe future threatened in- lernalional peace and security?" Pravda staled flally lhal the (Security Council "had and has no foundation for the Iranian ques- lion lo be discussed". .„- ,, -v..,.^, "Jusl as baseless and contrary iH-year-olds should not be ex I to Ihe rulings of the organization of the United Nations is the Secur- eluded. Eisenhower said he does not be lieve any country in Europe fears American intentions. He scoffed at alarmists "who say we are going to be at vyar day after tomorrow — which I don't believe " Eisenhower said it was the ulti mate responsibility of Congress to provide army manpower, addinK ••unless Gen. Douglas MacArthur gets the men requested, he will be in real trouble." Johnson said that nobody on the committee questioned the army's personnel estimates — the question was how 10 get the men. Eisenhower said that lowering the physical standards i'urthcr would only fill the hospitals and lorce the army to take in more men to care for the sick ... Sc n -Chapman Rcvercomb, R., W. Va., then attacked the .army's recent order raising the passing mark for volunteers from 59 to 70 in the army intelligence test. Mai. Gen. Willard S. Paul, army personnel chief, said about 10 per cent of the recruits failed this test last month, but argued that it helps give the army the highest i type of men. Veto of All Price Control Likely If Farm Rider Passes President Truman's First Year Faced by Some of the Toughest Issues in History quiet reconversion was ripped wide open on the labor-business "ront. To keep down living costs, he had said wages couldn't be raised —if they meant higher/prices — without government consent. Losing its wartime overtime, labor wanted higher wages. Busi- less said it couldn't raise wages without higher prices. So a big segment of labor struck. The old, traditional, free bargaining between bossess and workers went on, with the government forced to sit on. the sidelines. Finally fed up, Mr. Truman, asked Congress for a law to delay strikes and set-up government fact-finding boards to learn the truth. Labor and business ganged up on this notion and throttled it in Congress. Congress is still wrestl ing with the idea of some kind of labor law but not the kind Mr. Truman asked for. Displeased with Mr. Truman's position during the strikes, leaders of the CIO which helped elect him vice president called him a "weak and spineless man" out to smash unions. Mr. Truman has been criticized for not settling the labor problem faster. But no one has suggested how he could have done so without yanking off all wage and price controls. Actually the government has eased up—that's how the steel strike was settled—but Mr. Truman said the easing is really only a "bulge" in the government's hold-the-line policy. .,.,'••• How big the bulge is- v"" v ;;how "^ 1 S t PI* XlrVuSn ^Cnm/-'- r\f ' * . niiinn up later when "somt' of '-. .• price increases — which a ity oeing granted now in many dirt-'tlons— begin to affect living costi^ By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH Washington, April 8 — (IP)— A high administration official expressed belief today that President Truman will veto price control extension legislation if Congress lacks Ihe conlroversial farm parity amendment to it. The official made this statement to a reporter privately as the administration's economic high command called for renewal of OPA j»« by May 15 "without the crippling If I amendments which are now being III proposed almost daily." II In a report to the president on &SBI the Ihird anniversary of the hold- the-line order, Ihe direclors of five governmenl agencies said that if the emergency powers are continued through June, 1947, disastrous inflation can be averted. They asked not only for mainte-' lance of price ceilings, but--, for continuance of food subsidies, au- Ihorily lo keep on channeling scarce malerials, and for enough, money to finance these programs properly. These powers expire June 30 unless . renewed^: . The possibility of an OPA ex- .ension bill veto was raised as farm state lawmakers told reporters they will try to write into the legislation a . proposal to • bost farm parity prices. This amendment already ' has been passed by the Senate as a rider to 65-cent minimum wage bill, but Mr. Truman has announced he will be compelled to veto the measure because of the rider The House has yet Ur act on the legislation. Stabilizalion officials have esti- maled Ihe farm amendment would increase relail food prices about 15 percent and boost the cost of living generally about six percent, ihe proposal would revise farm prices upward to include the costs of agricultural labor.

The opinion by Associaule Jus- lice Ed F. McFaddin modified a Washington circuit ruling which had denied Bishop's motion to dismiss the two cases. Bishop was charged with four murders March 13, 1943, the state charging he shot and killed Lyle Graham, Paul Phillips, Lyle Carter and Howard Nail in front of a Springdale restaurant. He was convicted in July, 1943, for the Graham and Phillips slayings and sentenced to life imprisonment on each count. The two other charges were "passed." Last June Bishop's counsel sought to invoke a section, of Pope's Digest requiring that a defendant be brought to trial before the "second term of the court having jurisdiction of the offense which shall be held after the x'ind- ing of such an indictment" unless delay is S9ught by the defendant Prosecuting Atorney Jeff Duty of Rogers resisted the motion oil the grounds that the sole eyewitnesses to the case were in the armed services, that one was reported missing in action.
