Grand Central Palace was the big store of the draft, the plant in which "all'the different groups" as Eleanor the Great, with lefty objectivity, refers to the lower orders of the human race, were stripped to nakedness and, in this dignified condition, answered freedom's call.

As we sat in the auditorium and were being briefed oh what was to come, it was only natural the fellows were trying to pick Danny Kaye out. Which they finally did. Although it wasn't a laughing Danny we saw. He gave no response to guys hollering out his name. He seemed very annoyed and just sal motionless. "Abo'ut three-quarters of the way through is when I next spotted him. I hardly recognized him. He had nad his shoulders on — that is tc say a well padded suit etc., bui now we we're all stripped to oui shorts. There was about three other fellows in front of me waiting for the next doctor. And here w.as Danny Kayc, putting on probably his best performance yet. "The doc would tell him to bend from the waist. As he did this he gave out with a cry and immediately straightened up as if to say it was impossible to do." Possibly that is what his local board, No. 229, had in mind when it rejected unanimously a request from the U. S. 0. that Danny be permitted to go out as an entertainer and insisted that he would go in a soldier suit or not at all. The board wrote: "Neither his physical 1 nor his mental condition or attitude tends to show that the morale of, the armed forces would be benefitted by his performance before them as a civilian." . "He then commenced to explain something to the doc," says Danny's old buddy of somewhat less than an hour in the war against the savage barbarian hordes for the preservation of human liberty.

Charlie Schwab poured 58,000,000 of his steel profits into his 75-room, 40-bath Hudson river hidcway. He put in a $50,000 pipe organ and a refrigerator that could hold twenty tons of beef. It cost him $400,000 a year to keep up this overgrown bungalow, and Charlie, who had earned more than $1,000,000 a year, died cheerful—and broke. The final tally: assets $1,389,509, liabilities $1.727,858. Isaac Brokaw, multi-millionaire clothers, insisted that his architect put a real moat around his fifth avenue castle on the grounds that "there's more robbers in this town than all those King Louies had to put with" in France. All that ever tumbled into the moat, however, was a runaway horse. The orignal John D.

The working grou, composed of American, Russian, Canadian and Guatemalan representatives on a U. N. Palestine subcommittee, scheduled a session at Lake Success late this afternoon to consider a change in the dates and to iron out minor points on proposed U. N. administration of the Holy Land. An observer who attended last night's session of the four - power Palestine working party said several suggestions had been made for changing the deadlines for termination of the British mandate and independence of the Arab and Jewish countries. One suggestion was that the independence date should be moved to May 1 and leave the Arab and Jewish countries to negotiate with the British oii withdrawal. General concensus was that this suggestion would be rejected as impracticable. The other suggestion was that Britain terminate her mandate Aug. 1, the date the British set as a withdrawal deadline, and that the independence of the two coun- tires be moved to Oct. 1. Russia was understood to oppose anv alteration of the May 1 and July 1 dates, while other members of the working group appeared to agree that some change was necessary because of the British statement that withdrawal could not be accomplished until Aug. 1. . o French Reds Continued From Page One secause it said the end of subsidies to the coal industry had boosted coal prices more than 1,000 francs (about $£>) per ton. The new Communist move constituted a new phase of the far left struggle against the Ramadier government which began when Communists were ousted from the French cabinet last May. It also was a further step in the party's campaign against Socialist and against Americans, which began with the recent formation, of the nine-nation Cominform. The Paris communique began: "The Ramadier government, on orders from American capitalists, have just struck a real blow at the people of Paris."

So 'rick spent $17,000,000 on his own narble palace, stocked it with $30,00,000 in art treasures and willed he whole thing as a public mus- um, hoping it would make his name outlast Carnegie's. Income and inheritance taxes he high cost of servants and other actors have led descendants to dispose of most of the moth-eaten ;radeur huts built by the American money giants. ^What is the old order yielding >lace to? Well, the most dramatic change now taking place in Manhattan's' ever-changing face lies in the field of community housing. One insurance company is build- ng a $90,000,000 project'along the Sast river. It won't contain any Eu- .-opean art treasures and it won't ;iave a moat. But it will have rees, playgrounds and room for land where slums sprawled before, land, where slums sparwled before. That is the new pattern Manhattan is growing into. which have plagued the life of Socialist P.remier Ramadier's coalition government ever since the Communists left the cabinet. The government promulgated a decree, approved by . thq cabinet yesterday, providing for punishment of civil employes guilty of laxity in handling the recent rioting in Marseille, the nation's second largest city. Two companies o Republican security guards were ordered disbanded immediately and their members dismissed without indemnity. Marseille itself was calm this morning. Mayor Michel Carlini appealed to the population to maintain order and to striking workers to return to their jobs. The Communist political bureau, in its calred: The communique today, de- Communist party assures school football playoffs as expected last night, and the bracket ior the title scra.mble in that division will be completed today with the selection of three other' teams. The Arkansas Athletic Association will select either Little Rock or North Little Rock as champion and playoff representative of tht Fifth District and probably will invite the ' other to till one of two byes in the double a bracket. Another team is to be picked for the other bye spot. Little Rock, the 1946 stale champion, and the Norlhsiders are the only AA teams in District Five and will not play each other until Thanksgiving, while the playoffs will begin next weekend. Therefore, the AAA will pick a titalist on the basis of their showing against common foes. If Little Rock beats Pine Bluff today—as expected—the two will have identical season records of eight victries and a tie. The absence of AA competitors in districts Two and Six makes possible the invitation, of two teams tailing to annex district crowns. Here are the unofficial first- round pairings for the AA playoffs (district indicated in parentheses where team is champion): Little Rock or North Little Rock (5) vs invited team. Fayetteville (1) vs. Subiaco (4). Invited team (probably Little Rock or North Little Rock) vs Blytheville(3). El Dorado (7) vs. Pine Bluff (8). El Dorado, which tied both Little Rock and North Little Rock in non- district play this season, grabbed the Seventh District championship last night by trimming Texarkana, 14 to 2. The Wildcats, however, had to come from behind, scoring botn their touchdowns in the second .ialf, to win. Rain and mud were no hindrance as the speedy Fayetleville Bulldogs rolled ever Rogers, 51 to 0 complete an all-victorious drive in District One. The .Bulldogs had been conceded the title for weeks but had to beat the lowly Mountaineers to make it official. An inspired Leopard' team last night furnished one of the seasons major upsets by defeating the powerful Hope Bobcats by a score of 24 to 13 on a field made soggy by heavy rain in the morning. The Leopards scored in each quarter with the Bobcat tallies in the first and fourth. Hope took the opening kickoff and set up a series plays that moved them down to the Leopards 19. Ray circled end for the visitors first touchdown and Joe Lee converted with a place kick.

It seems hard to believe, though this 1 , writer can slate only two certain facts on the subject: (1) That not one of the numerous requests for contributions received in 20 years as a Princeton alumnus ever has carried the faintest suggestion of "slush fund" And U) that a friend in the coaching fraternity has said repeatedly that all the Ivy colleges, including the one at which he served brielly, are "hypocritical" on the subject of aid to athletes. . . The oddity of the anti- whispering campaign is that it made the news the same day that Syracuse's Lew Andreas, usually a very conservative guy, was quoted as urging alumni to set up a few scholarships for studious atnletcs in order to meet competition in Syracuse's own non-Ivy circles.

The fighters made their decisions simultaneously in Madison Square Garden last night shortly after Fox stopped the Bronx bull in 2:26 of the fourth round of their slated ten before a crowd of 18,340. It was the first time LaMotta ever tailed to go the route. It was ruled a technical knockout, but when Referee Frank Fullam stepped between the two fighters, LaMotta was staggering helplessly under Fox' Hammering. It was Fox' fight from the start. In becoming the first fighter ever to stop La- Motta, Fox kept his own unique record alive. It was his 50th knockout in 51 pro bouts. He was knocked out by Lesnevich in a title go last February.

Daily Bread Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn-- Price Control Isn't the Road to U. S. Security As this column is being written we don't yet have the actual text of the message President Tru nwi is to deliver at the special seWsion of congress opening in Washington today. But so-called informed adminis tration sources were quoted in the press this morning as being of the opinion" Mr... Truman would ask for restoration! of price controls and wage ceilings as a last resort to halt the inflationary spiral which is carrying the cost of living ever higher. ."..'.. Such a 'move would . sg'em- to this writer to be a mistake. Not be we aren't aware,, of the of the situation, but be cause the way we : look' 'at it the situation is so bad -ho 'there federa law on ' prices and wages is going to mend matters— the black mar ket pretty well exploded that notion as soon as the' 1 war ended. And now there is infinitely less chance for enforcement of bread- and-butter laws than there was when the reality of war remained with us. •'The criticism of free government always has been that there is an inherent tendency to make it constantly more complex — instead of adopting simple remedies — until it finally gets so complicated and top-heavy that it threatens to fall cf its own weight. .This is something every citizen instinctively recognizes — but which pressure groups ignore and politicians are afraid to correct. Mr. Truman in this critical hour may very well be writing the future of the Democratic party in 1948 — for the temper of the Amer- iL.».ih people in the past -bears out the conclusion that rather than support a policy of correcting bad laws by passing new ones they will demand simplification by repeal, and will beat any political party that denies this. The trouble with postwar America, more than two years after fighting has ended, is that every organized group in the nation, whether of labor or of capital, is still demanding in peacetime those scores of Allied ships, particularly oil tankers, cost the nation about $146,000,000 to construct. Texas Eastern Transmission, a newly organized firm, will pay the government $143,127,000 for the. pipelines in the largest surplus war assets sale to private ownership on record. Although Uncle Sam is divesting himself of the valuable wartime reserve facility and can be reclaimed for certain periods if necessary for national defense. The purchaser also is required to operate the lines in a manner to permit their reconversion to oil in the vent of war. The southern end of the Inch ines now is dipped in the natual gas fields of Texas, Arkansas, Lousiana and Mississippi. On the re ceiving end are Philadelphia, newcomer among natural gas users, and portions of New York, ennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky. Big Inch and Little Inch were declared surplus Dropcrty in April, 1946 and in the winter or 1946-47 were first used to transport natur' al gas when leased by the Tennessee Gas Transmision Co. In competitive bidding later Tcxa Eastern was successful and was given an interim lease for operation on May 1, this year. At the lime the new organization Look over operations the lines were sending without compression about 140,000,000 cubic feet of natural as a day into the Appalachian area. Under proposed plans the pipes will be sending much-needed fuel to the north at the rate of 340,000,DOO cubic feet a day by February 1, 1943. By August 1948 the delivery capacity is expected to be stepped up to 433,000,000 cubic feet. o Arkartsn* rain in ft portion* lairtnls with rain lotilght ,and colder Tueirfay, 49TH YEAR: VOL. 49 — NO. 30 Itar •!

BURTON HEATH Birthday 'With Wings Pan American Airways has just observed its 20th birthday. The age of adulthood in this country is 21, but Pan American is international, and surely it would be nig- ging to question that, at. 20, it has come of age. It was Oct. 28, 1927, that a frail wooden-winged 10-passenger Fokker F-7 was babied across the 90 miles of water separating Key West from Havanna, at b5 miles an hour. This was not the first international pasenger service. That was opened in 19^0 by the Royal Dutch Line, KLM, between Amsterdam and London. .It was not the first scheduled (Smerican passenger service.

LaMarre, president of Aviation Electric Company, testified today that although his salary in 1941 was carried on the company's books at about $31,000, approximately $28,000 of this sum was paid to Maj. Gen. Bennett E. Meyers. He had told the Senate War Investigating committee earlier that Meyers put up all the money to organize the firm which received over a million dollars in war business. LaMarre, who had testified Meyrs took him from a $35 a week ab . and installed him as head of e 'company, undertook to explain IG complicated bookkeeping ar- angement on salary, but Senator erguson (R-Mich) took over and jmmed it up this way: "Meyers.., instructed you to pay 10 salary 'out to yourself, pay the ncome tax and then give the rest the money to him." The witness assented. William Rogers, committee cqun- el, then explained that LaMarre 6t $3,000 as his pay. Testimony on the company's ar business was received last eek. Lawrence D. Bell, president f tlie Bell Aircraft Corp., said he ent $1,053,000 worth of subcon- racts .to Aviation Electric at Weycrs' suggestion it could handle e business. LaMarre said Aviation Electric said a total of $58,000 to Meyers n 1941. It was able to do this, he said, jecause it boosted the price of one if its units of electrical equipment rom $11 to $44.58 on instructions rom Meyers. Meyers, now retired from the army, was deputy chief of ai !oce procurement (purchasing) during the war. The Senate committee is inquiring nto his activities in that post. Individual senators have noted publicly daring the hearings that statutes provide penalties up to two years imprisonment for government purchasing officers convicted of .dealing with firms in which they have a financial interest. •Lamarre said he removed Meyers' name from the articles of incorporation at Meyers' direction.

The co-defendants are Ewald Loeser, Eduard Houdremont, Erich Mueller, Friederich Janssen, Karl Pfirsch, Max Ihn, Karl Eberhardt, Henrich Korscham, Friedrich Von Buelo, Werner Lenmann and Hans Kupke. All face a possible death penalty if found guilty. Today's arraignment lasted only a half hour, with the defendants tensely following -each word. Immediately after the arraignment the court recessed until Dec. 8, when the trial will begin. Reading of the 50-page indictment was-dispensed with in order to save time. In the course of the trial the prosecution is expected to submit more than 1,000 documents in evidence, which probably would carry .the trial through many months. The court,today emphasized the need for expediting the poceedings and ruled that documents submit ted as evidence would not be reac in the courtroom, but would be studied by the judges in theii chambers. When the indictment was filed last August Brig. gen. Telford Taylor, chief American prosecutor, said the Krupp steelmakers had symbolized German warmaking since before the days of the Iron Chancellor, Otto Von Bismarck. "The background of the crimes may be traced through a period of over 100 years of German militarism and 133 years embracing four generations of Krupp armament making," the indictment read.

The 'president laid down a ten- point program of what he called 'drastic measures" to halt the tide if rising prices. While urging continued voluntary attempts to combat Inflation, Mr. Truman proposed that Congress egislate to: 1., Authorize 'consumer rationing on products in short supply which basically affect the cost of living." 2. Authorize "price ceilings on Products In short supply which sasically affect the cost of Lying or industrial production and to authorize such wage ceilings as are essential to maintain the necessary arice: ceilings." 3. ^'Extend and strengthen rent control." 4. Authorize allocation and inventory control of scarce, cost of living .commodities. 5..'Authorize regulation of speculative trading on commodity exchanges. 6.- Restore consumer credit controls and restrain inflationary ;bank credit. 7.

It is a war in which bombast is used instead of bombs and wounds are caused by leaden propaganda instead of leaden pellets. Yes, I preferthe cold war. There arc all kinds of advantages to it that you don't find in the ordinary run- of- the- mill wars of the past which once caused William James to observe that "history is a bath doesn't cost either side as much o send over words and food as it does to send Us massed ships, men and machines. Some other advantages: Nobody has to tramp all day in .he rjain and sleep all night in the •mud. Nobody has to shiver in a fox- nole, waiting for dawn and eath. of blood. The "cold war" is a bath ol words, dollars, rubles and rumbled overtures of devotion to fair Eu rope in her hour of woe: The two contending suitors oi this distressed widow mutter threats back and forth and warn imposition of price ceillings on scarce vital commodities basically affecting industrial output. "This," he said, "will enable us to. stamp out profiteering and speculation in these important areas." | He said this does not mean that price ceilings should be imposed on all items in the classes he mentioned Ceilings would not be necessary, for example, he said, for staple food and clothing items that are not scarce, or for delicacies luxuries And the same kind of selection would apply to industrial items. He called for authority to restore consumer rationing as "preparedness measure" which would remit rationing of basic lining cost items on a "hlgly selective basis.' Mr. Truman said he thought that even should shortages of a few commodities at the consumer level remain serious for a while, he believes that fair distribution can be accomplished laigely without consumer i aliening. But no one can tell how serious some shortages might become, he said, so rationing authority should be on hand 1st Rene Mayef as foreign minit ter to increMe the importancej'pt Centrist representation in th inet, I •* ' > Paris< police, meanwhile, special precautions to prevent, repetition of/lait week's.''

Who wouldn't choose the "cold war?" There's lots of protocol but nlentions. Uncle Joe says he's joor but honest and that Uncle Sam is a rich scalawag who wants o bay Mrs. Europe for bis harem. Uncle Sarn says Uncle Joe is just an opportunist who will stow her away in a closet like a bluebeard or else make her take in washing. The fair lady herself doesn't seem to want to marry either one and is inclined at times to think she is like a lamb being fought over by two rival sheepherders. But meanwhile the courtship certainly has its advantages for her, and is flattering beyond anything she ever has known. No widow in history ever was offered more help in sawing her firewood or filling her empty cupboard The "cold war" is cheaper than Nations and the world's capitals, and all are heated in winter.
