April 10 — (UP) — effort may be made by the Mexican government to gain the treasure stolen from the Aztecs by Hernando Cortez more lhan '100 years ago. which now is sought by Inn American expedition, H was learned today. Joseph Sommcrs, Miami representative of the Irwin A. William son expedition said he learned of the move from three different sources. H was understood that the Mexican stand will be lhat the golden hoard belongs to the descendants of Corte/., sonic of whom reportedly still live . in Mexico. There was a possibility thai the gold — valued at $30,000,000 by modern standards •— might be claimed as a national treasure of Mexico. Plans reported to Summers, he said, include a formal request that Ihe United States government impound the gold, if it is recovered, until ownership can be- determined in the courts. Screening Is Vital, as Well as Fly Spray Flics nre n nuisance {\bout Ihc house and may spread disease, Home Demonstration Af!cnt Cora Lee Wcstbrook said, but bettor control of flies is now made possible by the development of DDT. Spraying with DDT is not enough to control -flics. Sanitation nnd screening are also necessary. Sanltction as far as fly control is concerned means not letting manure accumulate in piles, and disposal of garbage at weekly Intervals or more often, said the agent. Used In connection with sanitation and screening, spraying with DDT will keep n house virtually free ot flies. Spraying should be done in barns, poultry houses, hog houses, privies, and other outbuildings where files are common. If this is done, most flics will bo killed before they come to the house and little spraying around the house is necessary. Spraying all screens and spraying the inside walls and ceiling of the back porch and the outside wall of the Williamson meanwhile awaited in I buck porch around the door may the Florida keys for tlio wind and waves to subside enough for the search tu be resumed. He located the "Santa Picto-chart above, made from data in the new report of Gen. Jacob L. Covers, Army Ground Forces Commander, to General Eisenhower, shows casualties suffered by the various ground i'ovce- branches from Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7, 1941, through August 31, 1945. Highest percentage of casualties was suffered by the 1st Cavalry Division, heroes of the dash lor Manila. I I fishermen say Red River is clear, sleep by now. Cleburne County | and fishing is at its best. All streams in Benton County ; are crystal-clear, including Rpg- 'ers Lake—and they're yielding j good catches. The White and Illinois- Rivers—dingy the first of the week—are pretty well cleared up after a few days of sunshine. And a pretty large crop of bar bass is reported in the mouth of Big Piney Creek, in Johnson County. And with all the fishing activity going on, the State Game and i'isn Commission reminds sportsmen of license regulations. A resident . license is required of all fishermen over 16 years of age using artificial bait, lures, minnows or any other species of fish for bait. If you plan to iish from a boat, raft or any other float, you'll need a license. The set fine for v:bi..tion is between $10 and $50, depending upon the nature of the case. However, T. A. McAmis—State Game and Fish Commissioner— says that a license isn't needed if you use crayfish for bait. He made the statement in answer to a letter from R.E. Debow of near Batesville. Wild turkey hunting is still very much in the foreground of the sports picture this week. in Arkansas Four Phillips Counly men bagged gobblers • to head the list. Bringing back trophies of th» hunt are George Crumby of Elaine, Dan McMinn of West Helena, Hershel Harwell of Helena, and Jack Womble, also of Helena. Troy Rhoden of Hot Springs snared a fine gobbler on Cedar Mountain. Not so fortunate, however, were his companions—Sid Ball and Lewis Wodcock. And in Harrison, Police Chief Floyd Abels chose 'the turkey season for his vacation—and for the '''obvious reason. He smaked I down an 18-pound turkey in-.Mar-! ion County. But he insists the "big one got away.' ' It seems that the Chief flushed tow gobblers, and in the excitement he forgot to aim al the big one.

Rumors of Ihe construction of n new transcontinental cable, which passes between Hope and Shrove- port en route west for the purpose of ultimately carrying television «? broadcasts nrc veritied in Ihc 1945 Annual Report of Southwestern Bell Telephone Company, received in loday's mail. The annual report says: "Conslruction of a section of underground coaxial cable, to be" owned jointly by Ihc American Telephone & Telegraph Co. and this company, was stalled early in the year (1945) at the Louisiana- Texas state line, and by December 31 it had been laid almost as far west as Dallas. This cable will be A one link of tin ultimale transcon- y tincnlal coaxial cable which will provide paths for almost 1,500 simultaneous telephone conversations as well as for television transmission." Television has been more or less a ghost as far os residenls of Ihe Interior Unilcd Slales are concerned, due lo Ihe fact that the range of an original television transmitter is limited to the visible horizon— not much more than 25 or 30 miles.' But construction of the A. T. & T. cable makes it appear television j> will be given a hundred relay sin'* tions in the near future, tremendously increasing the range of Ihe original broadcast. Furthermore, when a conservative company like A.

Deadlock Over Bread By OVID A. MARTIN Washington, April 18 — — A Brilish-Canadian-American deadlock today over ways to ease the world food crisis delayed an order which will put this nation on a diet of less bread and flour. Representatives of the threfi countries met yesterday at another of a long series of meetings of the combined food board. But they failed again to agree on what each should do in the way of contributing wheat and flour to famine- stricken areas. Secretary of Agriculture Anderson has ready an order to cut American supplies of flour 25 percent, but he is withholding his signature ending further efforts of the three countries to agree on joint relief efforts. The American government is taking the position that the major burden is falling upon this country and that Canada and Great Britain could contribute more than they have offered. It is the official view here that both Britain and Canada could cut deeper into their reserves and reduce their own consumption further. Meanwhile, as the White House announced that President Truman will discuss the food crisis in a radio address at 7:15 p. m. (EST) tomorrow night, the chief executive's famine emergency committee called upon the government to adopt still more rigid food conservation measures. The committee headed by former War Food Administrator Chester Davis released, with Mr. f lr w a n mca> " -r , I Truman's aproval, a letcr of rec- ihn F«lr- eVCn ° y -1 ornmendations it sent to the White CIQ Will Attempt to Purge , Southern Democrats Who Did Not Vote for Truman Bills By JAMES MARLOW Washington, April 17 ® •(/P)—The nurif ihn F«r- quarter of the Eskimos use em it House April 9 certainly proves there is such a thing as an igloo.

Tomoyuki Yamashita, "Tiger^of Luzon," stretched a hang- man''^ noose. Thus died, in the Phillpaine capital they did so much to " war CIO is Fathering a double drive with deeply important political and social goals. The two drives will prove to be cosely related. 1 . The CIO Political Action Committee will take a very active part in the congressional elections this year. The primaries start soon. 2. The CIO itself, beginning in May, will open a $1,000,000 campaign to organize unorganized workers of the south into unions. Take the CIO-PAC first: Organized'in 1943, it was an active nnd effective force in the 1944 presidential-congressional e 1 c c - tions. Yesterday the CIO-PAC laid down a 17-point program for the 1946 congressional elections. The program backed the Roosevelt foreign and economic policies and then said: "The coalition .of poll-tax democrats and reactionary republicans thwarts the peoples' program." Sidney Hillman, CIO-PAC Chairman, said: 1. The national CIO-PAC will make .no ..endorsement and has no blacklist. ' , • . 2. The National PAC will "supply: the. state and* local PACS with plenty of 'information on issues and the voting record of congressional candidates. 3. Then, with this information, it will be up to the state and local PAGS to support the candidates they wish. The PAC, Hillman said, is asking a contribution of $1 on a voluntary bass from each member of the CIO, which claims 6,000,000. He sad the PAC hopes to be a factor "in at least 100 key congressional districts." Then, in answer to a reporter's question, Hillman said: There's no doubt the local PAC organizations will try to defeat have voted with republicans in opposing the administration pro gram. In this way, of course, the local PACS will be following the program laid down by the National PAC. Now take the ; CIO organizing drive in the sooth: The CIO in May will send 200 organizers into the south, operating with a $1,000,000 fund 'supplied by CIO Unions. CIO President Philip Murray recently called this organizing drive a "crusade to emancipate XXX the economic serfs of the soulh where people are still; persecuted and suffer much." ,'• Then, making it plain that the CIO is thinking of the political those southern democrats who Ifore that time. dygecrate, the two principal criminals among .-'Japanese field commanders. A most fitting end. Or,v£,it- cl pn end? , > -Yamashita; who went to his revered ancestors in the "disgrace" of'an undecoratod fatigue uniform with only a rope for a necktie, favored his executioners with a gracious pardon for their injustice to him. But Homma, permitted an "honorable" death in full military regalia, did not feel constrained to dilute the sacredness of his worldly exit with consideration for infidel Americans. He refused to make a final slalernenl. This is not necessarily lo say lhal Ihe "Beast" has been eternally denied voice. His "final statement" it seems to us, has merely been withheld for the time being. It is now being prepared, in Wasnington and in Tokyo, in London and in Nagoya, at Hunter College and al Tokci Institute. When at last it is released, il will determine which ideology truly won World War 11, and wnether the savage philosophy of Yamashita and Homma really died wilh them. The American courts-martial which passed judgment on the "Tiger" and on the "Beast" viewed the trials as an opportunily further to impress the Japanese people with the fairness and the impartiality of democratic processes, These men, obviously guilty of the most heinous crimes against humanity, were accorded super- scrupulous legal consideration, thought they long since had been condemned by outraged international public opinion. And were the Nipponese convinced of the desirability of democracy? We rather ihink not. It is more probable lhat they • regarded the courts' deliberation as mildly interesting preliminaries lo an in- evilable end— the pronouncement of death senlences. The evidence is present in abundance, it seems to us. Yamashita's conviction was followed by mass demonstrations of protest in Tokyo; Hqmma's by public exhibitions at grief for this maii:who "but did his duty to the Emperor." The democratic general elections of April 10, which have given rise to so many foreign eulogies, have aroused so litlle interest in Japan that the lightest of voting turn-outs is expected, despite the national holiday decreed. Public criticism of Hirohito is still socially intolerable. And Ihe "magnificent" new constitution remains but an historic piece of paper. The final returns are not yet in, of course.

Sociologists attributed it to unemployment, reconversion layoffs and "war-broken" homes rather than thrill-bent returning service men. The survey showed that the biggest increases were in robberies, automobile thefts and burglaries. Homicides and sex crimes also increased sharply. The Federal Bureau of Investigation said the upswing was the greatest since 1930, when the bureau began tabulating nationwide crime statistics. Reports from 2,000 cities with a total of 65,000,000 inhabitants showed these increases for last year: Wage Bill to Exempt Many Small Papers Dallas, Tex., April 18 — (ff>) — W. J.

Weekly or semi-weekly newspapers wilh less than 3,000 circulation, the greater part of which is in the area in which they are published, already are exempt from wage-hour laws.

April 18 —(UP)— Bald Hans Frank, Nazi overlord of Poland, tossed off a pious confession of feeling "a terrible guilt within me" today and then got down to the business of asserting that he was guilty of hardly any war crimes at all. Frank, former governor general of Poland, testified in his own behalf before the war crimes court, Like the other defendants before him, he made an ostentatious gesture of shouldering the blame for his acts as a Nazi slavemaster, only to wheel about when the chips were down and shunt the responsibility to other Nazis. Brazenly the man who threatened to make "mincemeat" of the Polish people or force them to serve the "master race" told the tribunal he was resolved to bare his guilt. "I will bear my responsibility," he said. "When Adolf Hitler ended his life, I made a resolution that I would state that the responsibility for my deeds was mine as clearly as. I possibly could."

The House, meeting at 10 a. m. wo hours earlier than usual, ossed the amendment-ridden bill over to the Senate, where the White House said today that President Truman hopes for "much better results." Asked at a news conference if the chief executive had any comment on the House amendments, Press Secretary Charles G. Ross .old reporters: "Not for print." Asked if the president was going to "do anything about it?" Ross eplied: •••.•• "He hopes for much better results in-the Senate." He did not elaborate. A bloc of Democrats, chiefly from the South, combined with Republicans voted yesterday to so amend the bill that Chester Bowles economic stabilizer, said the House had started "a joy ride toward economic disaster." Earlier, the House refused on a 370 to 20 roll call vote to shelve the continuation bill, rejecting a motion by Rep. Rankin (D-Miss) to send it back to the Banking Committee.
