SI* HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Byrnes' Spy Proposal Gets Red Attention By EDDY GILMORE Moscow, April 13 — MV- Russians read with considerable inter est today a statement by U. S. Secretary of State Byrnes that he was determined to obtain an appropriation of $4,150,326 xor a separate Intelligence unit. The account, carried in Izvestia. told of Byrnes' recent attempt to gain reinstatement of the allotment, after it was turned down by a congressional committee. "Particular significance was attached here to Izvestia's account quoting Byrnes as saying that "an intelligence service is not only an important mechanism for accomplishing our foreign policy but also a real element in our national system of security." Russians say they find it difficult to reconcile such statements with criticisms in the United States of intelligence services of other countries. The Russian press, in a wide variety of comment on international news, also took notice of reports of Ku Klux Klan activity in the United States; charged Britain with -"increased interest in empire preferences": and said that the trial of Gen. Draja Mihailovic in Yugoslavia was "one of the links in the cause of uprooting Spain Invites UN to Look Nation Over Madrid. April 13 — (/P) —'The Franco cabinet, describing the latest accusations against Spain as part of a world Communist campaign, today invited the United Nations to send a commission to this country to "prove the absolute falsity" of charges that German scientists are working on the atomic bomb in Spain. In a brief communique issued after its meeting, the cabinet also termed "false" and "absurd" charges brought by Poland at the United Nations Security Council meeting in New York that Spain was endangering world peace. Poland also had asserted that the Franco government was harboring German scientists, and from Paris said that a rn ports German Fascism's last children."

Moin Suspect in Poison Death KillsSelf Columbia, Mo., April 15 — (UP) — Authorities were convinced today, that Dr. Adolph Zech, University of Missouri professor German, killed himself afler a delector lesl because he had poisoned his wife with arsenic as she lay in a hospilal bed. Zech, a quiet, mild-mannered and scholarly man, sat al the desk in his study yesterday afternoon, wrote a suicide note to the country prosecutor denying thai he killed his wife, then fired a .22 caliber rifle bullet into his right temple. A coroner's jury three days earlier had found that Zech's wife, Marie, died of arsenic administered by "a parly or parlies un- cnown." On Saturday Zech was ubjected to questioning zor 10 lours and underwent a lie detector est. Authorities said the results vere "definilely unfavorable." 'As far as I'm concerned the suicide solves Ihe murder," said roseculor George S. Spencer. 'This closes Ihe case." Aulhorilies believed Zech mixed arsenic in botled sofl drinks which brought to his wife's bedside, ie admitled keeping a sack of arsenale of lead in his basement 'or spraying rose bushes. After the coroner's jury returned Is verdict ,Zech had urged a thorough investigation to delermine if a murder aclually had been com- mitled. Zech, 48, German-born and a naluralized American cilizen, had lived quielly wilh his wife on Ihe aniversily campus. They had wilh- neld Ihemselves from manl' of Ihe social aclivities of facully mem- :rs. • When asked whal he thought the jpurder motive was, Prosecutor Spencer said: "A motive? Well, I think he was very unhappy because his wife was in poor heallh." Mrs. Zech, 44, had been a patient at the Boone county hospital for nine days before her mysterious death April 5. Before that, she was a patienl at Noyes hospital —Ihe universily imirmary—for 5 weeks, bul physicians said she had no serious illness arid sent her home. Associales said Zech had complained of his wife's "whining dis- posilion."

Ceiling prices for used cars are in two categories—Ihc "as is" price which is all Ihe individuals may charge and the "warranty" price which qualified dealers may charge. The "warranty" price is 25 per ccnl more lhan Iho "as is" price and is allowed authorized dealers in return for guaranteeing the automobile against mechanical defects for 1,000 miles or 30 days, whichever comes first. A car sold under the "warranty" must be in good operating condition at the lime of sale.

It's a wacky world, isn'l il? o * * * By JAMES THRASHER Progress by Embarrassment The Russian government seems to have been embarrassed by the UN Security Council's consideration of the Russo-Iranian controversy. So Russia, through her obedient friend and neighbor, Poland, apparently is trying to embarrass the United Slates and Britain by calling allcnlion again to the continued existence of the Franco government in Spain. •Russia's allempt will probably be successful. During Ihe war the two allied weslcrn democracies played along with Franco for understandable reasons of exped- eincy. Since those reasons have become invalid, they have made known their dislike of the Franco government by a half-hearted and ineffeclivo" invitation to the Spanish people to turn out the Falang- ist clique. •Meanwhile Russia, France and others have pressed for stronger measures. Now things are coming to a head, as they were bound to. A possible results is thai the United Nations may be able to establish a precedent as to what constitutes a threat to world peace and what constitutes interference in a nation's politics. There arc proven charges against Franco. He gained and held his power with the military help of the Axis. He was a fawning admirer Of Hitler and Mussolini, and gave them considerable aid in World War II. He had modeled his government along Axis lines, and is running a dictatorship of a cruel and repressive sort. But does that make Franco a menace to world peace? Should the United Nations take active steps to remove him—even though the Spanish people, given a free election, might astound the world by voting him continuance in power, as the Argentine voters did Peron? There is good reason to answer yes to both Ihose questions. The Spain of Francisco Franco is a menace to world peace because, •so long as it remains, the fight against the Axis is not ended. World War II was a war between hostile, incompatible ideologies, even though we seem to have forgotten that today, II was a war to rid the world of the barbarian Hitler and his barbarous ideas of race and government. But those ideas suil flourish in Madrid. And so long as they do, Spanish soil is a dangerously fertile ground for the unfinished ideological war to break out again. Franco Spain also merits some punishment by the victorious United Nations as an active, if feeble, Axis partner. Spain's collaboration cost Allied lives and delayed viclorys. Her "neutrality" may have been as much of an asset to Hitler as Italy's belligerency was a liability. These are all familiar facts, but they must be faced. And when they are faced and acted upon, there are many more trouble spots in the world which must be dealt with before peace becomes a comfortable reality. All these trouble spots— India, •Egypt, Argentina, Indonesia, Palestine, llic Balkans, and Ihc resl —are an embarrassment to one or another of the great powers. Mutual efforts to embarras one's neighbors are not Ihe ideal way to cure international headaches. Bui if they result in clearing up Ihc trouble spots, we cannot quarrel too strongly with the method.

Nation Goes Meatless While Congress Wrestles With the Ever-Growing Black Market By The Associated Press A large section of the nation remained on a meatless diet loday as Ihe government waged a fighl lo break illegal dealings in meat and to restore more equal distri- bulion of supplies. The shortage in meal, acu'.o in many metropolitan centers, was reported in nearly every part of the country. Conditions worse than in wartime when meat was rationed prevailed in many cities, large and small. Some sections said the silualion was "getting worse." Butcher shops opened their doors bul weary customers didn't have much to choose — fowl and cold cuts — if any. A meat packer told the Scnale Agriculture Committee in Washington the situation was "a national scandal which makes prohibition look like petly crime.' In Washinglon, Ihe OPA and Ihc Dcparlmenl of Agriculture announced the reeslablishmenl of wartime meat slaughtering quotas in an effort lo diverl Ihc supply of available livcslock inlo cslablished packing planls. The FBI also was ordered inlo Ihe invesligalion of Ihe nalionwide shorlago of supplies. In Chicago, spokesmen for the meat producing and packing industries said the OPA action in re- sloring slaughter quotas "will not provide a remedy for the black market in meat." But Price Administrator Paul A. Porter said the effect of the con- Irols would be lo "provide for bel- ler distribution of meat supplies a ceiling prices lo relail slores." Secretary of Agricullure Anderson said il meant "in reality a sharo- Ihe-liveslock program." Meanwhile, in Chicago's stockyards yesterday there was feverish compelilion for supplies of top grades of cattle. Although the yards received 15,000 catlle, only a few were purchased by the big packers, the bulk going to eastern packers. : New York and Chicago felt trie pinch of the falling off in supplies. Morris H. Conn, counsel for the National Meat Industry couniil, predicted an acule shortage fof lof LW5 n*'< meat and bankruptcy of "about\75 percent of Ihc slaughtering houses" in the New York metropolitan area. Supplies dwindled in New York's restaurant chains and food stores. But there were scores of other big cities hit by the growing shortage. Dealers in Philadelphia and Detroit, however, had not felt the full effect of the scarcity, although many Michigan cities reported limited supplies. In Philadelphia, dealers cslimalcd their relail cuslom- ers were gelling aboul 50 per cent o£ Ihe normal supply. Kansas Cily said Ihe meat siua- lipn was "a litlle lighler," as the big packers were killing beef at the' rate of 400 a week as compared lo a normal 125 to 140 an hour. '. A dwindling of meat supplies, with millions of persons going without meat, were reported in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Milwaukee, DCS Moines, la., Omaha, Columbus, O., Springfield, O., Salt Lake City, Albuquerque, N.

LOWERY Butte, Mont., April 10 — (/P) — Patrol cars loaded with special deputies roved Ihc slreels o'f the nation's copper mining capital today and authorities believed they had brought under control the prowling mobs which have damaged homes and terrorized residents in an outbreak of labor violence. Sheriff Al McLcod, acting under the authorization of the Silver Bow county commission, mobilized 100 special depulies lo uatrol Ihc slreels and prevent further disorders by mobs which have wrecked 14 homes since Saturday "to show Ihcir sympathy for striking miners." "I believe we've got them under control now," McLcod said. However, new threats of violence were received in annonyrn- ous telephone calls to the homes of non-strikers warning them to "gel oul or else," McLcod said. Several families and Iheir possessions were removed by police from Ihe threatened homes last night for "security reasons." Homos wrecked thus i'ar have belonged to mine foremen and clerks who did not participate in Ihe slrike called lasl Tuesday ag-aist the Anaconda Cooper Mining Co. By the CIO mine, mill and smeller workers union. The wrecked homes were shambles of broken furniture and ransacked belongings. Union officials urged members lo refrain from vandalism and provided seven cars manned by 28 volunteers to help patrol cars and 25 special depulies patrol the city. The cars maintained a nightlong patrol last night, breaking up groups of potential rioters and giving them no opportunity for further vandalism, authorities said. The largest mob dispersed consisted of about 200 men and boys.

Spain Says She Fears Red Invasion London, April 1C — (IP) — The Madrid radio expressed fea>' that Russia was planning to invade Spain as the Franco government awaited replies today from five "friendly" nations invited to send technicians to investigale charges lhat Spain is a threat to world peace. ' These charges, together with an assertion thai Spain was harboring German scienlisls, wire made by Oscar Lange, the Polish delegate to the United Nations Security Council.

Worst Mine Blast in History Told Four Years Later Tokyo, April 16— (Pi>)— The world's worst mining disaster—an underground explosion which snuffed out 1,549 Chinese and Koreans lives in the Honkciko colliery in Manchuria —was reported for the first time today by Allied Headquarters—al- mosl four years afler it happened. The accidenl occurred April 26, 1942, under Japanese occupation. It was kept secret by the military from even the Japanese government for a month.

CUTTER Washington, April 16 —• (UP) — Senale leaders today rejected as - s totally unacceptable the House-approved draft extension bill which- exempts teen-agers and suspends all other inductions until Oct. 15. When the Senate takes up draft extension, probably next week, it will work on its own version which: is far more acceptable to administration leaders. Members of the Senate Military Affairs Committee generally' agreed that the whole thing would have to be thrashed out eventually in a Senate-House conference.-Before that time comes, how-' ever, they face the job of putting the committee-approved measure through the full Senate in the face of politically-significant election, year opposition. There are vast differences between the Senate committee's measure and the bill approved yesterday by the House. The House bill would extend the draft law from its present May 15 deadline to Feb. 15, 1947. But it would raise the draft age from 18 to 20, prohibit any inductions frbrri May 15 to Oct. 15, ban the drafting of any father regardless of age and set a limit of 18 months service for any draftee. In order to spur voluntary enlistments, the House also passed a companion measure providing pay increases for all members of the armed forces. The boosts, ranging from 50 per cent for buck private to 10 per cent for officers above five lieutenant, would cost an'esti- mated $632,000,000. The Senate , committee's bill would extend the draft law for one year, to May 15, 1947. It includes' the 18-month service limit and.'ban on father draft. Instead of a draft " .".holiday" it merely says . there shall be no inductions which Woul'd ' raise total strength of the armed", forces above present 'announced goals for the next 18 months. The Senate committee's bill also seeks id spur enlistments by raising service pay of all enlisted personnel. The ban on teen-age inductions drew the most vigorous argument's against the House-approved bill. Draft advocates said -it rendered the extension practically useless. They said that all the eligible men 20 or older already have been taken arid the only source of new manpower is among the 18-year- oias. s One administralion spokesman said Ihe House aclion amounted more lo passage of a "demobilization act" than a draft extension. Meanwhile, Rep. Francis Case, R., S. D., came up with a new solution for the manpower problem. He introduced legislalion to create a 'U. S. foreign legion of 500,000 aliens to take over the "police job" of American occupation troops in Germany and Japan. Members would be recruited from the "homeless and hungry" overseas to serve for at least five years wherever assigned by the U. S. Army. They would be paid at regular army rates and be eligible to apply for naturalization as American citizens upon completing their tour of duly. War Control Returned to Some Foods By WILLIAM A. KINNEY Washinglon, April 16 — (/P)—- The government mapped a new attack on the snarled food situalion today involving butter, bread, meat —and blackmarkets. Wartime controls were • ordered slapped back in an effort to spur butler production and Stabilization Director Chester Bowles foresaw a "real improvement within the next 60 days" on this front. The Scnale Agricullure Committee called for more details on factors dislocating meat distribution, while OPA and the Agriculture Department moved to restore other wartime controls on slaughtering with the aim of spreading available supplies more evenly. A .potential bread problem had members' of the Senate small business commitee seeking ways of meeting famine relief quotas for overseas wiihout impairing the nation's flour supplies. Baking industry sookesmen told Ihe commi1t.ee yesterday lhat if these supplies lall 25 percent below last year government break rationing or black markets in Ihe food are probable. The move for butter production was bracketed with OPA action to keep consumers bills at their present levels for milk, butter, cheese and other dairy products. A program of larger subsidies for dairy farmers was announced yesterday lo compensate for higher feed and labor costs. On butter, Ihe OPA aimed at overcoming a silualion which had made it more profitable to use butterfat for ice cream and olher products than for butter. Accordingly, the wartime ban will be restored on the sale of whipping cream and restrictions will be placed on the amount of buter fat in ice cream, Continued on Page Two
