Moreover — and this is important psychologically _ the people are under wartime regimentation, and the austerity of living conditions is so great that there is even shortage of such necessities as food, cloth ing and fuel. Mind you, the British have amply demonstrated that they can stand any amount'-of. austerity necessary, but the signs arc they are wondering whether they are being handed a rough deal. There is, I believe, another significant element in the elections.

The Prater Manhattan has broken every sales record in the long history of the automobile industry. Never before has any big, luxurious fine car sold in such volume in. less than seven months from the date it was first announced! It has had a truly phenomenal public acceptance-more than 25,000 buyers in less than seven months! Henry J. Kaiser and Joseph W. Frazer put the seal of their approval on this new product of Willow Run, last March. They knew they had put into it supreme beauty and luxurious appointments, smooth power and maximum performance, unusual safety features and long- lasting dependability—plus the balance and poise that would make it the easiest riding car in the world. They knew they had spared no expense—in engineering, in materials, in precision manufacturing methods. They knew, in short, that this car had what America wanted! Then they priced it "right"—hundreds of dollars below what would have been justified by such superlative quality. To everything else they added value! For they wanted to make and sell this great car in volume. They were right in their planning. For while Frazer Manhattan production has been increased five-fold since last April, public demand has never yet been filled! Come and see—and drive—this big, handsome, roomy, ultra-modern motor car. You will agree with its makers that it has everything you have hoped to enjoy in a post-war automobile —and at a pricey ou can afford to pay!

Congress has been Ballad into special session November 17, and in his Kiwanis club banquet speech at Hope High School last night the Seventh District congressman said America has a choice of three courses: "We can, (1) Pull out of Europe altogether," he said, "or (2) Simply mark time while waiting for another war, or (3) Give immediate help to free European 'governments along the lines proposed by Stale Secretary Marshall," Congressman warns observed | that different men survey the same scene and come back with different conclusions, and he added that the purpose of last night's report on his European trip was merely to give the facts and his own personal opinion on what American ought to do. His conclusion was: "Implementing the Marshall plan will cost money. Marshall proposes to stabilize the currency and economy of those countries that are willing to help themselves. It will cost America some money— but it seems to me it is better to extend this help to Europe now, even though it costs us, than to allow ourselves to be pushed into Farm Buys 1927 Model T for $995 Cash Houston, Tex., Nov. 4 — (UP) —The used car market in Hoston rode along in high gear today when a 62-year-old farmer counted out $995 cash for a 1927 Model T. R .L. Thacker of San Augustine first noticed the car in a classified advertisement in a Houston newspaper. He said he had been lookng for a Model T for three years "ever since my last one wore out." And his last one was a 1920 job. "Sure it was pretty high," Thacker said, "but I wanted a Model T and I had the money. That's all there was to it." He explaied he never drove anything but a Model T in his life. "I don't go for all these wheel shifts and things like that, and . I don't guess I'd know how to drive anything else if I wanted to," the well- to do farmer added. Thacker said he once drove his 1910 model in low gear for 160 miles, "not knowing about high gear." He said it didn't burn out "and I've been a Model T man ever since."

In Mississippi, where the election of a successor to the late Senator. Theodore G. Bilbo drew national attention, the apparent winner as counting went on today was Judge John C.

Charles (fP) Wilson testified today U May Be Sent to Aid Europe Rankin, who had promised to "out- Bilbo Bilbo" if elected, was running last. He did not give up his House seat to run for the Senate. The mayoralty elections though buffeted by cross-currents of local issues, were such that both Democrats and Republicans could find something to cheer about. Such things as this happened: Democrats ousted Republicans and took control of Indianapolis, Fort Wayne and Muncie, Ind.; Allentown, Pa., Niagara , Falls, Poughkeepsie and Schenectady, N. Y. Republicans turned out Democratic mayors in Hammond, Ind., and Amsterdam, Kingston, Norwich, Oneida, and Geneva, N. Y. They won • the city hall in Water that "outside pressure" was exert ed against the War Production Board in 1943 to prevent cancella- .ion of Howard Hughes' contract to the world's largest flying bury, Conn., for the since 1921. Democrats retained first time control of boat. evidence rectors, actors or producers are presenting this government as warmongering and imperialistic, or are suggesting that American capitalism is evil, decadent and doom•^d to early destruction. Instead, the committee seems intent chiefly on collecting names of Communists or suspected Communists, although Ihe FBI probably could have given them all the names they needed without the ex- ftpensc of hauling several million dollars' worth of movie big-shots to Washington. Film writers, directors or actors are not the final judges of what the public sees. If a writer tried to inject moscow-inspired sentiments very olten, he would likely find himself out of a job. And Hollywood pays its better writers the kind of eating money that would make the most dedicated comrade think twice before killing the source of the 18-karal eggs. <f Perhaps the Thomas Committee is only concerned with bringing Hollywood's Communists and crypto-Communists into the open, with maybe the hope that their employers would fire them. It would seem, from the evidence at hand, that the men who actually run the West Coast studios are doing an excellent job of keeping the Communists in line. They cannot prevent their employes from joining the party or from shedding a tear for the proletariat while they «paddle their feel in their privala 1 'swimming pools. They cannot prevent them irom being hypocritical bores and nauseating nuisances. But they can prevent them from preaching communism on the sound tracks, and from undermining the democratic faith of millions of movie-goers every week. And they have done so. Inasmuch as some members of the Thomas Committee have been among the loudest howlers against government interfer- a position where mere cost wouldn't matter alongside the prospect of another war, and our destruction."

Bv MAX HARRLSON Lake Success, Nov. 5— (IP)— The Soviet bloc announced today it would boycott a United Nations commission created to supervise general elections in Korea next spring under Secretary of State Marshall's plan for Korean independence. , Despite the announced boycott, the 57-nation political committee of the United Nations asembly voted 46 to 0, with four abstentions in favor of the U.S. plan.The Soviet bloc-refused to take part in the vole even to the extent of recording an abstention. The Soviet boycott declaration was made by Admiral Z. Manull sky, foreign minister of the Uk raine, after U. S.

Hence great advantage could be derived, Ihe officials say, from making available certain amounts of gold as currency reserves to replace those that have been drained off both by the war and by postwar imports of such essentials as food and fuel. The whole idea would be to pro- rule at Frankfort. Democrats swept back into control in this "border" state by eas ily electing U. S. Rep. Earle C. Clements as chief executive over Republican State Attorney General Elcton S. Dummit and taking over control of Louisville's" bba'rd of aldermen. Incumbent Gov. Simeon S.! Willis was not eligible to succeed himself. Democrats will claim'this a major upset, although Republicans, who have had only five governors in the state's history, have never elected two in a row . Otherwise, Ihere was little in the cross country returns to show any "trends" for those interested in trying to figure out the 1948 presi dential eleclion. There were no upsels in three special congressional elections to fill vacancies. Republicans won in normally Republican districts in Indiana and Ohio and a Democrat took a heavily democratic district in Brooklyn. The U. S. House winners: Ralph Harvey, Republican, won over Frank A. Hanley, Democrat, in the Indiana 10th, William M. Me- Culloch, Republican, defeated Jo seph B. Quatman, Democrat, in the Ohio 4lh, and Abraham J. Multer, Democrat, beat Victor Ra- binowilz, American Labor, and Jacob P. Lefkowilz, Republican, in the New York 14th. The former War Production Board vice-chairman told the committee another factor in his decision to cancel an $18,000,000 con tract for the plane was an acute shortage of manpower on the west coast where the ship was being built by Hughes. Subsequently, Wilson's cancella tioh order was reversed by the late President Roosevelt, who directed that the project go ahead. The big plane has been under construction since and took to the air for the first .time last Sunday during a trial -taxi run.

With results nearly complete, the Laborites had dropped a net of 65 seats, losing 77 and winning new seats. Tifey lost control of five councils to their opponents, barely clung to industrial Glasgow and won the upper hand in two small cities- Muselburgh and Selkirk. The results continued, in a less drastic way, the trend away frorr socialism markedly demonstratec by a Conservative landslide in las week's English and Welsh ballot ing for borough councilmen. Election campaigning in Scotlanc was less exciting than south of tht border, reaching its peak in Glas gow. There the Laborites lost thre seats bat clung to a two-vote ma jority among the 114 elected coun cilmen. As in Ihe English and Welsh loca elections, only one-third of In seals were at stake. Voting was somewhat heavie than in local elections last year In Glasgow 61 percent of the elec torate voted compared wilh 53 pe cent in 1946.- Scanning the results, Peter Melt, drum, leader of Glasgow Laborites asserted Ihe Scols "have not been stampeded by the English vote." • The independent Glasgow Herald noted the Labor party got "a less decisive reverse" than in England, but said "the Scottish results, taken as a whole, must be regarded as a vote of no confidence in Labor's capacity in local as in national administration." •o- , Tne" decision followed-a discussion:. in which it developed that' " abinet, jammed in a Communist- : carnival had not obtained red crisis, was summoned into pocial session today in an effort > patch up a widening rift between he right and left.

He tumbled down the last few stairs and lay, slretched silenl and meager on the narrow platform of the Wall Street subway station. It was the noon hour, and people are in a hurry then along the street where the world buys and sells. Some men stepped over the small sprawled figure and others walked to the other side of the stairway, pausing only for a cjuick glance. A subsvay track walker and a young well-dressed man who ".ooked like a broker saw the old Tian. The subway worker bent and ifted the old man to a silling pos- .ure. The well-dressed young man, leedlcss of a pool of spreading blood, knelt to feel the feeble pulse. "I can hardly feel it." Someone ran upstairs to the change boolh lo summon help. The olher two men gently laid the old man back down and put a (.V- tal. He is survived by his wife, a daughter, Mrs. Tennis Barg of Hope and a son, Allon Jones also of Hope.

So there on the station platform ,vith cars coming and going, carrying heedless hundreds on the errands of life, the young man knelt by the side of death and lifted up his voice: "Our Father, who art in Heaven . . ." The grimy subway worker knelt, too. and joined him: "Hallowed be thy name . • •" Frightened women moved away from the scene, but half a dozen men halted.
