Legal Notice Franco is harboring German scientists experimenting on new atomic weapons. DC Los Rios made his accusations against the Franco regime only a few hours after President Truman had told a press conference in Washington that the Polish charges were political. The president, did not elaborate. The Polish indictment was placed on the council's provisional agenda last night for consideration next week immediately after Russia's demand for dismissal of the Iranian case is disposed. A full hearing on the Spanish issue is assured and at least, four members are expected to press tor some means of cracking down on Franco. They arc: Mexico and Poland, the only council members recognizing the Spanish Republican exiles in Paris as a government; Russia, which never has recognized the but all candidates elected will bo subject to another check—and pos sible disqualification—before they can be seated. Several of the other 40 former legislators had been dis qualified by former Premier Hide ki Tojo's regime and only now are returning to politics. By tonight the party lineup of definitely won seals was Liberals 116, Progressive 86, Social Demo crats 78, Communists three, with three others apparently certain of victory; minor parties 39 and in dependents 72. This lineup means an enforced coalition in the house, which doubtless will be dominated by a Conservative viewpoint. Many so ciai Democrats and probably most of the independents fall into this category under modern Japanese political conditions. The Socialists, however, showed surprising strength. The Communists' three assured and probably six- scats are fewer than the 12 conceded them in prc election prognostications. Home Minister Chuzo Milsuchi reported to the cabinet that the nationwide average vote was 72.3 percent — "generally belter than expected." Of the women elected, five each are from the Progressive, Liberal and Social Democratic partis, eight from minority groups, one is a Communists and eight are inde pendents.

Arkansas Bonk Building Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn Tough Highway Problem Now Confronts State If the average citizen thought Arkansas was wealthy simply because occasional news dispatches reported a fabulous bank balance for the slate treasurer he was quickly corrected last week when Bob Brown, United Press correspondent, reviewed the problems confronting Governor Ben Laney's 37-man advisory highway committee. The committee between now and May 7 must propose a definite plan for raising 62 million dollars 'to replace worn-out state roads. -. Looking over the list I note that among the principal routes to be repaired or replaced are: No. 07 from Prescott to Arkadclphia, and No. 70 from Forrest City to West Memphis. If the other roads arc in as bad shape as these two ttrclrbis then the stale's problem is fully as serious as Governor Laney reports it to be. But the committee's discussion of how to find more revenue is hardly enlightening. Among the proposed plans were: A half-cent increase in the state gasoline tax. A $5 use lax for every vehicle. A mileage tax on trucks and buses. An increase in the present three- mill road tax levied by counties; coupled with equalization of property assessments, and permitting counties to vote a privilege tax on business enterprises. ; \I can imagine the impressive silence which greeted e-ach and all of these proposals. As a matter of fact, few people still can understand where so much road money goes in such a hurry —yet leaves Arkansas' main roads in- considerably worse shape at the end of the war than the highways of our neighboring states. •X * * By JAMES THRASHER Last Rites for the League The League of Nations, feeble and forgotten these last 10 yearn, is about to die and pass forever into history. A final session lias begun in Geneva for the purpose of giving the organization as decent i\ burial as circumstances permit. The sad ceremony should not pass unnoticed and unwept. Most certainly, it should not go unnoticed. For one of the fundamental weaknesses that killed the League has been inherited by the United Nations. A congenital laint was present in the younger organization at its birth, and developing symptoms are now evident. That weakness is the domination of the organization by its most powerful members. The League had its Big Four— the United Kingdom, France, Italy, • and Japan—as the UN has its Big Five. ; In its early years- the League df Nations settled some minor dis- riutes between minor powers with dorifelderable^succe'ss.'^It was legs' fortunate in' dealing with differences involving a larger nation. But hope persisted until 1931, when Japan's defiance of and departure from the League exposed to the world the organization's fatal vulnerability. Only two more blows were needed to dispatch the tottering League and set the stage for World War II.-Another defiance and departure occurred in 1932, when Germany was denied arms parity in the League disarmament conference. Then same the Italian invasion of Ethiopia in 1935. The big powers, more concerned with their mutual relations than with peace and justice, refused to impose sanctions. Today defiance and departure are again alarming symptoms of what might be a fatal weakness. The right of .defiance by the Big Five is written into the United Nations Charter. The technique of departure has already been Iried on a limited scale and has achieved a limited success. We may mourn the League today with the sort of grief we feel for the passing of a brave, well- intentioned, but frustrated nidivid- ual. But at the same time we may take hope for the survival of the League's descendant. That hope lies with the peoples of the world, who are better informed, more influential, and, consequently, more actively noticed than they werb 25 years ago. The preamble to the League of Nations Covenant, spoke of "honorable relations between nations", of a "rule of conduct among government," of "the dealings of organized peoples with one another." The preamble to the UN Charter speaks of "faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small," and of a determination "to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another." This is a considerable departure from the thinking of the world's statesmen in 1920. And however far the United Nations may stray from these brave new principles, it is still a departure in the right direction.

Tex., April 15 — (UP)— Ballistics experts cxam- ned n handful of .32 caliber shells .oday in the belief that the double- murder of a high school student and his girl friend were committed jy the slayer of another couple .hrec weeks ago. The bodies of Paul Martin, 17, and Betty Hokcr, 15, were found icnr here early yesterday after a high school dance. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Texas Rangers, Arkansas state police md local police joined in one of Ihc biggest murder investigations 'n recent Texas history. Police believed the unsolved kill- ngs were committed by the slayer of Richard Griffin, 29, and Polly Ann Moore, 17, shot and killed March 24. Young Martin had taken Miss Hooker lo a dance, where she played in a high school band. They last were seen as he drove her from the dance in his car. Both were members of prominent and wealthy families. Young Martin's body was found lying in a thicket at the side of a lonely country road two miles north of here. He had been shot in the shoulder and in the back of the head. The girl's body was found near a desolate country lane a mile and a half west. She had been shot in the face and heart. The youth's automobile was discovered a mile north of here. There was blood in the car and police found .32 caliber shell cases scattered in the vicinity. Investigators believed young Martin may have been shot in the shoulder while in the car, and that the assailant' shot him in (he back of the head as he leaped out and tried to flee. Capt. M. T. Gonzalcs, head of the Texas Rangers who came here to conduct the investigation, said .32 caliber bullets were used in the slaying of Griffin and Miss Moore in March. Circumstances of the two crimes wore similar, he said. Griffin and Miss Moore both were shot in the back of the head. Their bodies were found in the real- seat of Griffin's car on the outskirts of Texarkana. Texarkana, April 15 — (/P)— The joldcn Rule lacks a lot of being ost, judging from the number and variety of replies received by the Palmer Foundation for the promotion of an atilude of fairness and unselfishness in personal and public affairs, H. W. Stilwell, president of the foundation, said today. The $100,000 foundation, established by C, E. Palmer, Arkansas newspaper publisher, has been sponsoring a contest for best suggestions as to how such a project might be carried forward. First prize of $1,000 is offered for the oost suggestion with $500 as second prize. The contest closes June 1. Several hundred letters from a wide cross-section in the United States and many foreign countries have been received according to Golden Rule Foundation of C. E.

"President Truman in an address last fall said that the American people must be guided in their international relations by the Golden Rule, and, of course, it is just as desirable that we be guided by the Golden Rule in our domes-; tic relations," Palmer said.

Black Market in Meat Hit by U.S: Order ' i •Washington, April 15 —(UP)— Three government agencies acted today, to end the nation's black market in meat. The Agriculture Department and the Office of Price Administration made public an awaited order channeling livestock to established, legitimate slaughterers, who recently have found themselves unable to buy animals for slaughter. The Justice Department opened an investigation of reports that many packers have been making false subsidy claims. The Agriculture-OPA program will provide a channeling system designed lo give each legitiriiate slaughterer an opportunity to kill the same portion of the available supply of cattle, calves, and hogs as he slaughtered in 1944. The amount of livestock which slaughters may kill will be adjusted as rapidly as the supply changes, the agencies said. Price administrator Paul Porter said "the answer to equitable distribution of meat supplies is not the abandonment of price control as suggested by sonie." "We are not going to ask the American people to pay tribute ' • legalized black market," he C:.I.L .ne real answer lies in a system of controls at the source of supply which will give established slaughterers more nearly their customary volume of livestock and provide for better distribution of-meat supplies at ceiling prices to retail stores." Secretary of agriculture Clinton P. Anderson said the new program was "in reality a shar-j- the-livestock program." He pointed out that many packers have had difficulty getting normal supplies of livestock at ceiling prices. The agencies hope thai it will also reduce black market operations of those who have recently gone into the slaughtering business and those who have increased their slaughter greatly during the past few months. This is not the first time that OPA has had quotas over the slaughter of livestock. Such controls, in effect during the war, were suspended last September. Since that time, many slaughterers have been killing much more than their normal proportion of the available supply of livestock, while others have been unable to obtain even half their customary proportion of total slaughter. The new controls will be effective in a few days, the agencies said. The Justice Department plans to look into meal black marketers who reportedly have been receiving illegal subsidy payments from the government.

Vandals — including one mob" 1 of about 500 — were mostly women and young children, Saturday night and again last night, gangs of men, women and teenage boys — armed with axes and traveling by truck and automobile — roved the streets of this strike-bound copper-mining community of 40,000 and its suburbs, unloading at private homes to bash in windows and doors and throw wrecked furniture into the yards. Most of the homes damaged, Police Chief Bart Riley and Mayor Barry O'Leary said, were occupied by miners who stayed on their jobs on "the richest hill on earth" after a strike of 3,500 members of the International Union of Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers (CIO) began Tuesday. The union strike cpmmitee, however, declared that neither the union nor its members were re sponsible for the disorders. A stal- ment issued by the committee called on both union members and , the general public to help maintain I order. Officials of the Anaconda Cop per Mining Company, against whose mines the strike was called in a dispute over retroactive pay, had no comment on the disorders. At Helena, Gov. Sam Ford said he had telephoned local authorities here and had been assured the situation was "in hand." In event of uncontrollable trouble, he said, Montana would have to call on the federal government for help, since the state's National Guard unit — the 163rd Infantry — still is in aclive federal service. However, he gave no indication he planned to appeal for federal assistance. Federal Labor Conciliator Robert C.

Sheriff Al McLeod said women led some of the gangs which caused thousands of dollars of damage. A crowd of 3,000 or more witnessed one of the house-wreckings last night. The two wounded youths are James Guidoni, 16, seriously wounded by a rifle shot in the back as he walked along a Butte street a considerable distance from the nearest disorder last night, and Raymond Butala, 14, wounded in the eye by a glass fragment when a bullet crashed through the windshield of his parents' automobile Saturday night. Last night's terrorism ebbed before midnight and was not as widespread as that of Saturday night. Apprehensive police, however, were no confident the trouble was over. The strike followed a company offer of an 18 1-2-cent-an-hour raise — or $1.48 a day — effective April 1. The union insisted that ihe increase be retroactive to Oct. 1, expiration dale of the last contract. Nazi Gang in China Is Rounded Up By WALTER RUNDLE Shanghai, April 15. — (UP) — U. S. authorities revealed today the existence of a postwar Nazi- operated werewolf organization in China with the arrest of 20 German, Italian and Japanese agents ed by a close personal friend of Adolf Hitler. Lt. Col. Ludwig Ehrhardt, head of all German military and naval intelligence in Asia, was the leader of the group seized upon urgent requests from the State Department. Further arrests and wholesale deportations will follow. The leaders arrested will be charged with violation of German surrender terms. Activities of the group* known as the Ehrhardt bureau,- were said to be responsible for the sinkings of American ships including at least one aircraft carrier. They were believed indirectly responsible for heavy American losses in the early phases of the Okinawa campaign and in other Pacific actions. " Ehrhardt's organization had offices in Shanghai, Canton and Peip- ing. Vote on Draft 'Holiday'Is Due Today By DEAN W .DITTMER Washington, April 15 — (UP) — The House today defeated an attempt to kill legislation to provide a five-month draft holiday and prohibit future induction of teen-agers. Rep. Dcwey Short , R.,' >Mo., moved to send the bill back to the House Military Affairs Committee. His motion was rejected by 135 to 74 without a roll call vote. Thn House neared a final vole on the measure, which would extend life of the Selective Service act nine months beyond its May 15 expiration date. House leaders predicted the membership, acutely aware of the coming elections, would try to dodge a recorded roll call vote on the extension bill. Most'members felt . themselves uncomfortably squeezed between the unpopularity of the draft and President Truman's assertion that its extension was vital to the nation's security. The cry of "politics" resounded throughout debate and was especially loud when the House voted the draft "holiday" and boosted the minimum age for inductions from 18 to 20. The House was also expected to pass today still another bill to sugar-coat peacetime military service by boosting the pay of-mill tary personnel, as high as 50 per cent in the case of army privates. .Administration leaders, who had fought for a year's extension of the present draft act, hoped the Senate would re-write the House' bill and remove al least the provisions for the "holiday" and the ban on 'teen age draft. Supporters of the holiday argued that passage of the higher pay bill would enable the armed forces to obtain needed manpower through vo'imtary enlistments. The bill would extend the Selective Service act for nine months, until Feb. 15, 1947, but at the same time .would: 1. Suinend all inductions between May 15 (when the present law expires) and Oct. 15. Drafting would start after this "holiday" on if the president finds voluntary enlistments won't do the trick. 2. Stop drafting of fathers and of 18 or 19 year olds on May 15. 3. Limit service of draftees to 18 months, regardless of when they were inducted. 4. Prohibit inductions after Oct. 15 unless they* are needed to meet certain manpower ceilings by July Angry Big 3 Row io Follow Withdrawal of Iran Complaint 4 Japs Who Put U.S. Fliers to Death Under Orders Are Sentenced to Prison Labor Shanghai, April 15 —(/P)— Four Japanese army officers were sentenced today by an American military tribunal to form five to nine years in prison at hard labor for the Kangaroo court trial and execution of three Doolittle airmen. The commission which tried them ruled that the defendants acted without choice under specific orders from superiors. The three airmen, Lts. Dean E. Hallmark of Dallas, Tex., and William G.

Shreveport Thugs Sought in Arkansas Shreveport, La., April 15—(UP) —The search for two young bandits who boldly robbed employes of a Shreveport dress shop of $7,000 bank deposit money in the midst of downtown crowds had attended to Little Rock, Ark,, today, police revealed. The holdup occurred in full view of scores of persons Saturday night, when Gus Watson and Charles Meyers, employes of the Grayson dress shop, started to a bank with two money bags containing $5,000 in cash and $2,000 in checks. At gun point, they released the bags to one of the youthful bandits who escaped in a waiting car driven by a companion. Police remained mum about leads on the holdup pair, simply saying that the search had shifted to Lille Rock. They said they had questioned several suspects here but none had been held.

French Occupation Forces Notable for Cool But Just Attitude Toward Germans By .GODFREY ANDERSON (For Hal Boyle) Baden-Baden, Germany — (/Pi— After four years of having their own country occupied by an enemy army, the French are showing forbearance in their occupation of southwestern Germany. The military term "correct" would seem to be Ihe word for it — polite, if somewhat cold. Less fraternization appears on the surface than in the British zone, far less than in the American zone. French and military government officers arc in the main severe but just, ready to, do what is right by Ihe Germans but not much more. The Germans seem to respect them for it. Each evening at sunset when the tricolor is hauled down at French headquarters, every German passerby must stop and bare his Head. It serves as a litlle reminder of who is lop-dog now. But there is no real attempt to humiliate the Germans. The French too lately fell humiliated themselves. The new, if small, French army in Germany is smart and con- cious of its responsibilities Guards are neatly turned out, military courtesies and saluting slricl ly observed, equipment better maintained than in the past. Of course the Germans have worries of Iheir own. Many of the six millions living in the zone probably are hungry. Their daily food ration has fallen to about 1,000 calories a day and they have only 200 grams of bread to eat with their almost nonexistent sausage. The French zone is not self-sufficient and is short of both wheat and coal. The French say that the economic administration of their zone has suffered because it is neither geographically nor industrially complete. They have a part of Wur- lemberg, bul no longer have ils capilal, Stuttgart, from which they withdrew so thai it. could be included in the American zone. They have the larger part of Bad»n, but they lack its capital, Karlsruhe. They have the Rhineland, br.l the British hold Cologne, its largest city.

Sotojiro Tatsuta, commander of the execution party — five years at h~_"d labor. Said the commission, Tatsuta acted "only in his official capacity" and was "only obeying specific instructions from his superiors. There is no evidence to show he mistreated the prisoners." . Capt. Yusei Wako, courtmartial judge—nine years. Lt. Ryuhei Okada, courtmartial judge—five years. The commission found that both accepted fraudulent testimony \vithout question but in passing the death sentence "acted on Hjrect, specific instructions from superiors." Wako was sentenced to nine years because he had legal training. The defendants were impassive as the sentences were read, but their Japanese defense counsel wept with joy and one in a choked voice thanked the commission profusely for its "fair verdict." The three Americans were among the eight fliers captured after the Doolitle raid of April 18, 1942, when their planes crashed along the China coast. Sentencesof 5 Pickets Are Upheld Little Rock, April 15 — (/P) — One year prison sentences assessed five Blytheville striking bus line employes for alleged violation of the 1943 act declaring "violence or threats of violence" a felony when used to prevent ''any 'persons from engaging in any lawful vocation" was affirmed today by the Arkansas Supreme Court in a split decision. One justice dissented in part to the majority opinion by Associate Justice Frank G. Smith and a second dissented entirely with a formal minority opinion. The defendants were Frank Gurein, Alton Collins, Billy Tapps, Holland Oakley and Bennie Overton, who were charged with assaulting A. L. Cobb in an "attempt" to prevent him from "engaging in the vocation of driving a bus." Constitutionality of the act previously had been sustained by the supreme court but the five men challenged their conviction on the grounds the law was unconstitutional, that the petit jury which heard their case previously had listened to a grand jury report discussing "misdemeanors as an outgrowth of union organization or strikes," that the information did not allege that Cobb was prevented from engaging in a lawful voca- majority opinion held that tion.

However, Chief Justice Griffin Smith dissented to the portion find ing that the testimony was sufficient to convict and Oakley. Collins, Overton Associate Justice R. W.

Another Knoxville station, WROL, also has cancelled paid religious programs, effective when current contracts expire. The News-Sentinel said it had no connection with the station's policy, but in an editorial it had commended the stalion's action "in taking the price tag off religion."

By R. H. SHACKFORD New York, April 15 - (UP) - • Announcement .in Tehran ins t ran's ambassador here has been nstructed to withdraw that na- , ion's complaint against Rusna today promised another angry Big Three row in the United Nations! Security Council. Iranian Ambassador Hussein Ala's aides declined to say whether the new instructions had been received. The council members will meet at 2 p. m., CST, and indicated that hey would reject Russia's demand lor immediate dropping of the Iranian case — even if Iran asks hat it be dropped. Earlier, Hussein Ala had received instructions to tell the council that Iran believes Russia will teen its promise tp get out of Iran' by May 6. 1 * But the new showdown with Russia already is overshadowed by «' preliminary diplomatic maneuverr ing over Franco Spain. During the council's "cqoling off" recess since "" Last Tuesday there has been an intensive buildup for a crucial test later this week over Poland's charges against Franco Spain..,, ' The council faced angry debates on both cases. And the results,in both probably will find the wartime Big Three split again — the Soviet Union on one side and the United States and Britain on the other, although Russia has more support for action against Franco Spain than on any other issue ever brought before the council. The current Iranian problem is an aftermath of the earlier case and a result of Russia's effort < to have the council give it a clean bill of health in that country before . the promised evacuation of troops has been completed. On April 4 the council voted in view of the new Soviet promise to get out of Iran by May 6, to defer further consideration of the case until then when both parties were asked to report whether the new agreement had been fulfilled. A few days later Russia asked, in effect, that the council reverse itself and wipe the Iranian case com pletely off its books immediately: The United States, Britain arid most of the other council members contend that the case cannot be dropped i until May 6 when it' can be determined whether 'Rus- sUkhg'g kept her hew promisel-She '•' broke' the "one'.urider the '1942 treaty, • to be out of Iran by March 2 last, ' The new instructions to the Iranian delegate <werte not interpreted here/ either-by Ala or by other ' council', members, as Iranian" sup* port of the Russian < position. ' In . fact the Tehran announcement said- that the decision whether to drop the Iranian case now was one for the qbuncil itself. to decide American and British officials took the same view. They 'feel that.' once the council has taken jurisdiction of a, case and acted on it, that it is the council and not one of the parties that must determine its disposition. They feel, in effect, that the Iranian case has become the property of the council. Thus ,even if Ala asked the council to drop the case now, the council — although it would be embarrassed in such a case — would not be .disposed to do so. The new Iranian instructions to its delegate here were interpreted as an attempt by the Iranian government to get itself into more of a "middle" position in its dispute with Russia. Previously Ala's instructions were to insis± that the council maintain Iran's case on. the agenda, Now his instructions will be to speak favorably of Russia's intent to carry out her new agreement and remove from Iran the onus of demanding continuing council jurisdiction over the case. Meanwhile, Poland continued § reparation of her case against pain in an effort to prove to the council that not only the activities but the "very existence" of the Franco regime is a threat to world peace and one requiring joint world action. All evidence pointed to the fact that Generalissimo Francisco Franco is extremely conscious of the Polish effort to throw the full weight of the council's pretige behind the long campaign to get rid of Franco. The Spanish government's latest move was a decree stopping all transfers or negotiations in assets of firms . in Spain whose capital wholly or in part belongs to Germany or Axis occupied countries. This followed quickly on the heels of Franco's offer Saturday to let United Nations who maintain friendly relations with Spain send a commission to his country to in? vestigate charges that German scientists are working on atomic energy there. Franco's inspection offer was received cooly here—especially by members of the council who do not have diplomatic relations with] Spain and are supporters of Poland's charges. The Poles called it another "Franco trick" and even Anglo-American diplomats weroi-inol .attracted by Franco's "limited offer." The United States and Britain maintain almost identical views on the Spanish situation, but the Americans arc insisting that it is not a joint policy with the British.
