MOtTMWEST AMANSAS TIMfS. reiytttevlH*. ArkewiMe, WieliMialar, May 7; IM1 Methodbts Take Shot At Smoking As They Close General Conference San Francisco-(/P)-The quadrennial General Conference of the Methodist Church closed a legislation packed 14-day session last night with a parting.shot at smoking. In the final, fast-moving 'session, the conference voted to continue the no-smoking pledge required of ministerial candidates. It voted against giving full ministerial-rights to women, set forth the church's view's on war and peace, made-'a 'change in the church's social creed, and set up a new board to study social and enocomic relations. Church spokesmen said the conference made more major changes in church organization than any since the first conference of the United Methodist Churches in 1939. It also handled a record number of legislative petitions. From a survey commission report on overhauling church structure, the conference chose the least controversial parts and ordered them enacted. It agreed to redraw the organization of the 40,000 local churches, making an expanded official board the administrative authority in each. The 720 delegates from some 25 EVERYTHING IN NUMBING and SUPPLIES FAYETTEVILLE IRON and METAL CO.

Tney agreed that Negro churches might join white jurisdictions if all parties consented. They decided unor- dained pastors could administer the sacraments only if they were studying for ordination. Record Budget Adopla£ To run church agencies until the quadrennial conference of 1956, delegates voted a record general bud?=:.of 11 million dollars for each of the next four ye?--. 3ume of the most bombastic rtcbate came in the final hours, urging the conference to throw out the no-smoking pledge, the Rev. Dr. John M. Versteeg of Athens, Ohio, demanded: "Did you ever hear of a man coming home and beating his wife and children because he had too much smoke inside him?" Dr. Cyrus Albertson of Seattle voiced the opinion of opponents when he said: "It's not so much tobacco use as the impression ministerial candidates will get that somehow the Methodist Church has pulled down its standards." Greek burials were sometimes made in jars that were molded around the body and then baked.

North Wett St. Paris-(jip)-A young French doctor is about to play at being shipwrecked for two months to test his theories of survival at sea. He is Dr. Alain Louis Bombard, 27, who intends to drift across the Atlantic Ocean on a floating "laboratory" raft with four companions living on nothing but seafood. For thirst, they will drink the doctor's own recipe of seawater mixed with juices pressed from fish with a fruit squeezer. He says it tastes something like French mineral water. Already a double veteran at crossing the English Channel -once as a swimmer and once I aboard a rubber liferaft -- Dr Bombard estimates the 4,000-mile trip will require two months from from Gibraltar to the Antilles by way of the Canary Islands and the Cape Verde Islands. The doctor's craft, now under construction in Rotterdam, Holland, will be a special Polynesian- type raft, with double parallel floats connected by planks. A cabin amidships will shelter bunks, a collection of books and the doctor's laboratory. At sea, the raft will proceed under sail. It also will have a small auxiliary motor for use in entering ports or in case of emergency. The takeoff is set from Gibraltar, sometime around June 1. For this trip, the doctor's principal equipment will be fishing tackle and the fruit squeezer. · We will fish and . take pictures." the doctor says. "As for myself, every other day I will have to make tests of my companions and myself to study every slight reaction to our special mode of life. Besides, a survivor should do as little work as possible." Rug, Carpet evening Firm Is Organized A rug and carpet cleaning company has been opened at 326 A North West Street by V". B. Hags- dale, who has had 26 years of experience in cleaning and repairing rugs and carpets. He will specialize in cleaning and repairing Oriental rugs and* contract carpet laying.

WSB's job then to keep employers from raising wages too much. At that time it had nine members: three from organized labor, three from industry, and three representing the public. It soon became clear the nine didn't get along well together. After a couple of months, Truman reorganized the board, changing it from nine to 18 members. By executive order Truman gave the new WSB some extra and far- reaching power. He said that when collective jargaining. between a union and an employer broke down, the WSB could step in and settle disputes nvolving more than just wages. For instance, the union shop. Business didn't like this, but the board rocked along until last December when Truman told it to step into the steel- dispute after Bargaining broke down between the CIO union and the Industry. Some weeks later the board -- sut not the industry members -- ·ecommended a healthy wage Increase for the union, plus other )encfits and the union shop. That was the start of all that has happened junce. The steel mill owners, who said ,hcy couldn't afford the wage raise without a price increase of about ;12 a ton, reacted violently against WSB and the powers It had. Congressional critics, of whom there were plenty, did the same. The upshot: demands in Congress that the board be stripped of Its new power and reduced to what it was In the fall of 1950 -simply an agency for sitting on wages with no authority to settle disputes.
