M 77 3.97 17 today on the touchy, question of racial sefrelation, a possible critical issue in the pre-convcnlion campaigns of both major parties. They were the Republicans' Gen. Dwlght D. Eisenhower and the Democrats' Sen. Bates Kcfauvcr. Both were criticized by a Negro official for what he-said was their attitude toward Negroes in the armed services. Clarence Mitchell, Washington bureau director of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said Kefauver once voted for race segregation in :hc armed forces, and that Elscn- intver had told NCAAP that ^Jegro soldiers mixed with white 'would be at - disadvantage." The 'Tennesseean's office said cfauver once backed a proposal to lot men i i "uniform decide whether they/wanted to serve in segrcg'fl'td or non - segregated Units. No one offered any commcm for lh general, who has said he would not take part in the prc- convcntion presidential campaign. Senator Taft of Ohio was under fire too--fo" a statement that he has "no confidence" in the |»rcs; cnt Chiefs of'staff. Spnator Morse (R-Orc) said, without naming him directly, that the GOP candidate' should not shake public confidence In t'ic military leadership. Taft himself was in the Far. West .campaigning briskly and talking u bout everything from potatoes to foreign policy. · M-iving into Idaho, Tall said the recent p r l - : order on while po- tatoc:--a hot issui in IJaho--was an example of "federal bungling la industry.".. Speaking in ' Boise and Poca- lello, he said, workers and farmers deserve govr i .ril aid, but 'only to give them equality under free entcrpri:* system; the COP won't win by using a "me-too" policy; and the administration's Fur East nolle."

Warren In New York Gov. larl Warren of California, mother GOP candidate, implied In New York he does not believe Gen. Douglas MacArthur is the man' to keynof; the Republican convention this July. He said the keynoter V ould not be a candidate, and hould not favor any special candidate. MacArthur has been reported leaning toward Taft, but has neither confirmed nor d-- nled this. Dc.wn In strongly Democratic Lo- ' inne, the stale's handful of Republicans were holding the political headlines. An Eisenhower faction dcmjndlng a voice in the pro-Taft GOP State Ccptral Committee said n court decision today may play a role in the presidential ·ace. .The "'sonhower faction wants the court fo f--c« the Taft forces --who '-old party 'authority--to recognize returns of a January 13 primary In which the general's lorces unexpectedly won 10 committee scats. Harold E. Stasscn, former Mln- icsola gov--nor . bucking Tatt, Eisenhower and Warren f j r the jOr nomUiation, said in New York he favors a world-wide proto combat Communism.

Power Company Setks Bond Sale Authority Supply Probta Looms Large In Exercise Now Under Way By Army In New York D, Heaver, Vcrnon David Harner, Pat Increase Noted In Tuberculosis Among Cattle Chicago - (A'l - The American Veterinary Medical Association warned 1 today bovine tuberculosis --a disease communicable ' from animals to humans--is on the increase in some sections of the country.- '" "Jn 'one of the major cattle producing states the number of tuberculin reactors among cattle was down to- 900 a year just before World War the association said. "Since then that . state's number of reactors has risen to 5,000 a year.' 1 · An association spokesman said the situation is not the same in all states, but that it appears cattle owners in general have been underrating the need for strict, continuing eradication measures. "There arc still enough tuberculosis cattle in the United States to serve as a nucleus for a new nationwide chain of infection if we let down on precautions and failed to keep after this disease with all vigor," he said in a statement.

Y.-W;-Supp|y- ing the 33,000 men waging tbe winter mocjt. war, " E x e r c i s e Snowfall," is a staggering task. It demands special, contributions of the grocer, the druggist, the hardware dealer and the Jilling station operator. In a winter maneuver, .extra clothing and fuel are needed. Col. · Louis' Greenfi«ld, transportation expert for the . First Army which · is conducting this exercise; today gave 'reporters a glimpse of the scope of the supply problem. Among other things, he disclosed that: From December 10, when preparatory work started for the exercise, through February 12 about 942 freight car loads of supplies and equipment arrived at Camp Drum. The cars needed for equipment of forces alone--tanks, artillery and other heavy material --included 308 flatcars, 118 boxcars and 10 gondolas. To bring personnel here, even though many airborne troops arrived by plane and thousands of other soldiers came by truck, 77 pullman cars, six kitchen cars and various other cars were needed. Supplementing the huge rail tonnajrc were an estimated 40,000 tons 'of supplies brought in · hy military and commercial truck. Camp Drum has 14 miles of its own trackage to handle cars as they come off the main line. But.getting the warehouses and supply dumps all the supplies and paraphernalia needed by cquiya- i lent':of two divisions is only the beginning. It still has to be taken to the men in the fields. Because this is primarily an airborne operation, fighting men who have been dropped in war games must be supplied by air. "Weapons and ammunition, ranging from items weighing a few pounds to trucks and 105 millimeter guns weighing tons, are dropped by huge chutes to equip troops in the field. Quartermaster Corps expAts here say their part of the air dnJp can be likened to combination grocer, druggist, hardware dealer and filling station which takes orders by radio and drops a package in your backyard 15 minutes later. Almost everything dropped needs a special kind of ''packaging," including heavy wooden platforms upon which trucks, guns and large amounts of food or fuel are secured by ropes and pushed out of cargo planes .for descent by. the giant chutes. Some small equipment and supplies that can stand rough handling are wrapped into shockproof packages .and sent down "free all" ·. style--just dropped without parachute. Helicopter Group Busy One of the busiest outfits in Exercise Snowfall" has been the Army's sixth Transportation Helicopter Company, whose home base is Fort Sill, Okla.. It seemi, that everybody in Exercise Snowfall needs a helicopter. They arc used for evacuation of simulated ·ounded and.they also have been used for carrying actual injured from remote crash scenes in the maneuver. ,'· A soldier was injured when his jeep skidded and crashed into a tree. Men with him stamped out in the spow the word "Help." A helicopter spotted ' the signal, picked up the man and put him down almost at the door of the base hospital in a few minutes. Commanders, umpires and a host of other officers want them fcr quick visits to distant places in the 1,500-square-mile maneuver area. WALT BEACH Guaranteed Watch R«palH«fl win U C.

Adjustments In Schools Under Consideration Equalization Of Facilities To Be Encouraged Little Rock-(/P)-The Arkansas Board o( Education has asked that recommendations be made toward adjusting differences between white and Negro schools. The order, which wont to the state Department of Education yesterday, asks for a report by March 10. Education. Commissioner A. B. Bonds, said it was an outgrowth of lawsuits seeking to abolish ra- c i a 1 segregation in Arkansas' schools. Bonds said he thought the board should decide "what we can do to help and encourage the districts to equalize facilities," and that "perhaps an "intensive study by the department will result in recommendations.which will bring about equalization within a reasonable time." Anti-segregation suits' h a v e been filed against the Hughes and Fordyce. School Boards. Other suits have been threatened. · Education B o a r d Chairman Marvin E. Byrd of Earle said the proble- of equalization must be solved or segregation will be eliminated. Segregation is required under state law and Arkansas Board of Education poliefct, Board membtr Dr.; T. 8. Staples said if segregation is abolished "it will be · hell on tarth." He said he believed in wfreiation, "but I know what It would mean to break down tegregation by court decree." .jqt ·»» Ik* «Ua» -n»d PLAN TO BUILD S« bui Material. Oil Oat Print. Try Our B*r*fe«.
