The New England lawmaker told a reporter he has received much mail since his demand last week that GOP National Chairman Carroll Reece resign as part of a "top to bottom" party shakeup. "The only complaints I had were from Democrats," the gray-haired former Vermont governor said. "They gave me the devil, saying that if the republicans kept Mr. Reece in there, they could retain the presidency ' and gain control of Congress." Aiken said he has not talked with Reece and does not plan to do so. "But, he added, "I may have a statement later if things don't change. I want to see the Republican party win-in 1948 but to dp that we must have broader individual management in the national party and more constructive legislation in Congress." Aiken said his remarks were not aimed at Senator Taft of Ohio, chairman of the Senate's Rebabli- can policy committee and an avowed candidate for his party's presidential nomination. "I think Senator Taft should be careful to make it clear in his speeches whether he is speaking for the party or for himself," Aiken continued. "But I do not think he should be required to step out (as policy committee chairman) just because he happens to be a candidate, although it makes his position more difficult.'' Meanwhle it was learned thai Taft and Senator Flanders (R-Vt) have exchanged friendly letters ab an aftermath to their disagreement at a recent conference of Senate Republicans. Neither made the letters public but Flanders is known- to have 5n- By WILLIAM F. Washington, Dec. 1 — (UP) — Army strength is dwindling "ser- ously," army officials disclosed to- Jay; and congressional action may :e necessary to raise the pay to stimulate recruiting. The army is getung only half the necessary recruits to fill requirements. Already the army is 70,000 men short of requirements and is osing about 1U.UUO men a month. The picture is a little brighter n the navy and the air forces. The air force is recruiting about 10,000 men a month despite stricter requirements and has the nucleus of a "going concern." The navy reports it is recruiting and discharging about 'an equal number of men. The balance was struck recently when the navy relaxed its physical standards. Tne latest ngures on the sizes of ;he three armed forces are: navy 440,032; ait' force 327,000; army ground forces GOO, 000 — a total of 1,3(37,032. Army officers said the situation Six Burn to Death in Home for Men Philadelphia, Dec. 1 — (/P)— Wind- lashed flames whipped through a dormitory for homeless men todav killing six persons and sending to hospitals 17 9ther men, same with critical injuries. Some of the victims — many employed as street corner Santa Clauses — died or were hurt leaping from their quarters as the subfreezing weather turned the water from firemen's hoses to ice. Mrs. Edith Gallatn, who lives across the street from the dormitory operated by the Volunteers of America, Inc., said she looked :rom her home and saw men, lopelessly trapped, at the windows. "The fire was in back of them. knew it was going to get to hem. It was all too much to look at. I turned away." Fifty-one-year-old William G.

Flanders previously let it be known he believes Taft and other party leaders should offer a "positive" Republican program instead of merely criticizing the president. Flanders headed a Senate-House economic subcommittee which investigated the cost of living last summer. In a report submitted to the full committee headed by Taft the, Flanders group suggested several of the anti-inflation measures later urged by Mr. Truman in his message to Congress. In his informal letter to Taft Flanders wrote that' high living costs may be a major issue on coming presidential campaign and said he feels the Republican jiarty nasnt shown enough interest in people as such, especially low income groups. • Taft in his reply said his principal interst is to better the living standards of the American people. But he said he favors a fight for a "free economy" as opposed to is "serious." If the size of the ground armies is allowed to drop too far, it may weaken occupation forces. The navy is outstripping the other two services by signing up about 15,000 men a month. The army takes in about the same number as the air force — 10,000 But the air force can expand cas lly to 401,000 to July 1, 1948, its authorized strength, with present recruiting because it is the smallest of the three services. The navy is in the position of having to hold to its present strength of 394,232, enlisted men and still drop about 4,000 officers to reach an authorized strength of 42,000 officers' and 395,000 enlisted men 'on July 1, 1948. Army authorized strength is 070,)00 officers and men on July 1, 1948. It is already down to COO.OOO and still dropping fast. The army sees some hope in the tact that its enlistments are now "declining at a decreasing rate" and may level off. Action that probably will be proposed to Congress includes: 1. Raise the pay of the army from bottom to top. 2. Authorization to use more civilians to replace soldiers in non- combat jobs. 3. Establishment of universal military training. 4. Make the women's army corps a part of the regular arrny. o Bradley Finds Peace Army Different Washington, Dec. 1 — (/P)—Gen. Omar Bradley came back home to the army today to find its size and problems strikingly different than when he left more than two years go. For the next couple of months, he former commander of the 12th ii'iny Group in Europe will devote is time to the transition from his nost recent assignment of running lie Veterans Administration to di- ecling the army's operations as hief of stnff. Gen. Dwight D. Ei- enhower plans to leave that post n early February to become pres- dent of Columbia University. The department of the army set side an office for Bradley to use mlil he takes over active com- nand, but officials said today it 31-obably will be just a place for he general to get his mail. Bradey has let it be known that he in- ends to devote the coming weeks getting re-acquaincd with the ond floor of the building when the Eire began, told of staggering to a window, aiding another man, and stumbling down a fire escape.. "We went down," he said. Th&nk God we got down. I saw some.of the poor devils who were trapped., at the windows. They cd'Uian'V make it to the fire escape. When you see something like inat you feel all tied }ip inside. But you're thankful you're alive." The search for bodies ended at 10 a. m. (EST), about 10 hours after the blaze was first discovered. Forty persons were listed as safe or slightly injured. The dead were listed by police as Stanley Bush, 45; Patrick Allen, 70; vVilham Snead, 03; Michael Boyle, 59- Charles Kenney, 45; and Tnomas Wallace, 50. Sixteen members of a Kensington family were injured in another Philadelphia fire. They were trapped as flames, apparently starting from an oil stove, swept their home. Two of the victims were injured when they leaped from the second story windows. The others were treated for burns and smoke inhalation. Listed in serious condition at St. Mary's hospital were Rcndolph Phillips, 54; his wife Catherine, 47, and four children. The dormitory flames—fanned by a high wind — spread rapidly through (he four-story brick building which is occupied entirely by the Volunteers of America. The organization, with headquarters in the damaged building a Oxford and Marshall streets, used the first floor for a shop in which new and repaired toys are sold during the Christmas season and furniture and clothing the remainder of the year. The second and third floors are dormitories for homeless men — many of them elderly and many of whom work as street corner Santa Clauses collecting .donations ior charity. The fourth floor is a repair shop. Charles Berry, a reporter for the Philadelphia Inquier, who was one of the first to reach the scene, said he saw. "four or five men jump from the second and third floors of the building." 'Several men were hanging at arm's length from window sills," Berry said, "and then let go despite the fact that by then firemen had ladders raised. One man was discovered a half hour later standing on the roof." Bernard Nathans, who lives across the street from the building, said he saw eight men crawl to safety by way of window sills and ledges to ladders. Several men escaped through a rear door, Nathans said. The flames had been 'extin- Mrs. LaMarre to Have Her Chance Washington, Dec. 1 — (&) — Mrs. Mildred Lamdrre, who has denied sue was ever the "girl Iriend" of Maj. Gen.

During a Senate investigation of Meyers, Lamarre testiried the army officer was the real owner of a wartime aviation subcontract- ng firm, Aviation Electric Co., Dayton, Ohio, and received $150,)00 from it. Lamarre said he was only its "dummy" president. Meyers denied that. The two star general told the Senate committee he established the firm and made Lamarre its president because Mrs. Lamarre was his "girl friend," a story Mrs Lamarre labels as "lies, all lies." With Lamarre was his brother in-law, Thomas E. Rednower who was a vice president of the now deiunct aviation company.

Since the herings before n Senate war investigating subcommittee closed Meyers has been stripped of his decorations and deprived uf his $550 a month disability pension. While the grand jury prepared to resume its deliberations alter a long Thanksgiving recess, army, navy and air force authorities presumably wore combing their files in search of data on all officers retired on tax-free disability pay. President Truman let it be known Saturday that he wants the services to "clean house" and eliminate "any possible racket" dealing with such pensions, now going to more than 30,000 former officers. The disclosure was made by Maj. Gen. Harry H. Vaughan, Mr. Truman's military aide. Die Raing.

The verdict of thes,e critical buyers is overwhelmingly favorable. Their experience adds up to such enthusiastic endorsement that more than half the sales we make result from owner recommendations! Owners of Kaiser and Frazer cars write letters to Willow; Run by the thousands, praising the performance, ease of control, roominess, economy and, above all, the ride that these great postwar automobiles give them. The following excerpts from unsolicited letters tell the whole story of why itaiser and Frazer owners like these fine cars.

He plans, oo, to visit the military schools nd staff colleges and find out how he thinking goes in these times vhen the whole pattern of combat ilanning is being subjected to new nodes of warfare. Bradley says this travel in the Jnited Slates will keep him too H»sy to make any trips outside the country before he takes over as chief of staff. However, his associates expect that sometime later will make an inspection tour of the Pacific, an area he has not seen since 1928 when he was stationed at Fort Shatter, Hawai as a captain. Whether a Pacific trip might take him as far as Japan to see anyone's guess and an interesting General Douglas MacArthur is anyone's guess and an interesting one because such a meeting would find a four-star chief of staff of the army dealing with a five-star lieid commander. The five-starred general of the arrnv rank held by Eisenhower and MacArthur was a wartime innovation which Bradley will not inherit. That detail is hardly one calculated to cause Bradley any worry.

H. Waihburn- Library Equipment Fund Should Be Raised Promptly . Canvassers reported 'last night they had raised half of the required to equip the new library building so generously donated by Dr. and Mrs. G. E. Cannon. That's a good report for the opening day of the drive, and the goal ought to be reached without fail this week. Yesterday's pictures showed ground being broken for the new building, in the presence of Dr and Mrs. Cannon, who arc making the gift; N. P. O'Neal,, who is donating the brick, and B W * Edwards, who will handle the T.'construction contract free. Such regard for their town and county and people t by the few ought to stimulate smaller gifts from the many. For the essence of a public library is books—and books belong to everyone. Whatever good you get out of a book is'doubled by the knowledge that others have read it, too; books were invented to spread information, and public libraries are the greatest single torch of learning , in the world today. w We of the American republic are especially obligated to support public libraries, for the fundamental requirement of a self- governing nation is that all its people be literate and be kept abreast of the times. If you haven't contributed to the $5.000 equipment fund do so today. Contributions should be addressed to the Hempstead County Library, Hope. * * * * By JAMES THRASHER American Aid and European Socialism American aid should not be used to further nationalization of Euro- I pean industry, says the National Association of Manufacturers. In a set of recommendations presented to President Truman, tht NAM also urges that existing state enterprises should be freed of political control, and that American dollars , be given to "private competitive * enterprises" in the participating foreign countries rather than to governments or their agencies. These recommendations may seem to bind the whole program of aid with some rather tight strings. But they do tackle a question which must be faced, and which is likely to increase in importance as Secretary Marshall's proposal moves from the planning to the operational stage, The most obvious weakness of aid .-.restrictions, is that they--would ** give the-Ruasiaii pwpfife&rida vl %uns a supply of fresh ammunition. Of course, the Soviet government will keep on attacking our aid program anyway. But controls, such as the NAM proposes, would tend to sup-' port the Russian charges that the Marshall Plan's purpose is to dictate the domestic economic policies of western European governments. In the case of England, the voters chose a government, by a large majority, with pledged itself to a A, limited program of state social* ism. If the American government should follow the NAM suggestions, it would withhold aid from the nationalized British coal industry, which is one of the weakest links in that country's industrial economy an.d badly in need of assistance. At the same time, it would be unwise for this government to pour money and goods into Europe without any control over their use. As Harold Stasscn has pointed out, f the protection and promotion of individual liberties is also a part of the American policy of assistance. Thus far, nationalized industry has not solved the postwar problems of any country seeking American aid. If that aid should be used to extend state socialism, and, if, under a broader socialistic program, Europe's plight should grow even worse, nobody would win. Besides preserving individual freedom, the main purposes of » our European aid program are to relieve immediate physical hardship and promot long-range economic recovery, without weakening ourselves. The concern is with people, not theories, So it seems to us that'American goods and money should not be used to capitalize new socialistic enterprises that have no guarantee of success. At the same time it does not seern right ot withhold aid from nationalized industries now in existence, or to give arbi- n trary preference to private cons '' corns in every case. The chief administrative problem likely may be to avoid giving European Communists propaganda material that non-Communists will believe, and at the same time to avoid subsidizing the socialization of western Europe.

The measure cleared the Senate by an 83 to 6 vote late yesterday in substantially the form asked by President Truman two weeks earlier, but it still has a rocky road ahead. Even the Senate version is $7,000,000 more than the House Foreign Affairs Committee has recommended. And the House group's total includes $60,000,000 for China which the Senate measure did not include. . ,r-»ans Associated frtn (NEA)—Means Ntwipoper EnttrpriM An'n. HALLECK SAY GOP SENTIMENT STRONG Washington, Dec. 2 — . (#>)— Republican Leader Halleck Ind) said today there is "considerable sentiment" among House G. O. P. members for a cut in the $597,000,000 emergency foreign-aid program .voted by the Senate. Halleck told newsmen after a meeting of the House Republican Steering Committee that no decision has been made by the party leadership on a specific amount. The committee shapes party policy in the House. Nor will any attempt be made to bind House Republican members at a party meeting called for this afternoon, he added. When the House takes up the bill, Halleck said, he would not be surprised if someone offers amendments to cut the amount by $60,000,000 to $90,000,000 "or more." Present plans, Halleck said, call for general House debate on the bill Thursday and Friday, with amendments to be considered early next week. "Our fight will be to take out the $60,000,000 for China," said a high House Republican who declined to permit the use of his name. "Even the president did not request emergency aid for China and the Seriate provided for assistance only to Italy, France and Austria." However, the GOP leadership is s Pht on the Chinese question. , ^•"-^iiartirr (R-Mass) - said .-„ he favors giving some help to China immediately. But Republicans were virtually unanimous in their insistence that the stop-gap bill contain a provision, not in the Senate measure, stating that the Congress is not committing itself to continued foreign aid. Many Republicans, including some of the top members, believe that the long-range, Marshall plan for European recovery must be trimmed sharply from current estimates anging up to $20,000,000,000. The whole issue of foreign aid- both short and long term — was due to be reviewed at a conference of the 245 House Republicans later today. The Senate beat down every major amendment before sending the emergency bill to the house By a 56 to 30 vote last week it rejected a move to cut the overall Continued on Page Two o Would Control Wages in Some Industries By LAURENCE GONDER Washington, Dec. 2 — (UP) — Secretary of Labor Lewis B. Schwellenbach today asked Congress to set up a board with authority to control wages in select industries as a part of President Truman's anti-inflation program. Urging approval of limited price control as well, Schwellenbach said present indications are that living costs will not drop "in the near future" and that labor will seek higher wages unless there is prompt action to check high prices. On food alone, he said, the 1948 outlook is for higher prices. His recommendations and predictions were made in a statement prepared for delivery before the House Banking Committee. Schwellenbach promised that the controls — if granted .— would be used sparingly. But he said the administration should have price and wage controls over select commodities and industries to be used "if necessary." The labor secretary said he felt organized labor would withhold new wage demands only if Congress gives Mr. Truman authority to reimpose price control on essential cost-of-living items, such as foods, rents, fuel and clothing. Schwellenbach said the proposed wage board should be stationed in his Labor Department. He said it was doubtful the wage controls would be used in "more than a handful of cases" but that they would be needed if any price controls were brought back.

Is Now Producing Two New Atomic Weapons Atom Testing Site Established on Small Isle PRICES and under design at com- 'laboratories," Lilienthal Washington, Dec. 2 — (fP) — Projected atomic tests behind a curtain of absolute secrecy in the remote Pacific suggested today that American scientists may be preparing new weapons based on the same terrible power as the atom bomb. A terse announcement from the Atomic Energy Commission- disclosed that the armed forces are making tiny Eniwetok atoll—1,500 miles form the nearest large land mass—into a closed-off proving grounds for research on "new fundamental data." What goes on there, the commission said, is expected to result in advances in "peaceful a's well as in -military applications of atomic energy. Asked whether a reference to "atomic weapons" means that this country's arsenal now includes a nuclear fission running mate for the atom bomb, one official plied: "You can draw your own elusions." ' Unlike the surface and underwater atom bomb tests at Bikini Atoll in the summer of 1946, which were covered by several hundred reporters and foreign observers, the new experiments will be under "full security restrictions," last night's announcement said. The area will be shut off from the world and the security council of the United Nations will be notified to this effect, as provided in the U. N. trusteeship agreement for the former Japanese-mandated islands. The 145 native inhabitants of the Atoll Islands of Aomon and Biijiri will leave for a permanent new home which they .will select. Bikini was unsuitable for the new experiments, the commission said, because it lacked land sur face enough to contain "the instrumentation necessary to the scientific observations which must be made." XBniwetok itself has! only • about '2 -4 square miles of land. One big reason for choosing it, the announcement explained, is its isolation.

Lilienthal, chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, disclosed today the United States now is producing new atomic weapons from both uranium and plutonium. 0 .' {| J> "Both of these products are used for atomic weapons in current production mission said. He did not explain whether trie new weapons are bombs, such; as were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or represent.a new military application of atomic power,'. Such details are classed as "secret." . . . v In a speech prepared for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, , Lilienthal said the weapons are being assembled at the isolated Los Alamos, N.' M.< laboratories where the first bomb was produced. '.-.;.-. Yesterday the Atomic Energy Commission disclosed a new provr ing grounds for atomic weapons is being created at remote Eniwetok atoll, in the far Pacific. , Lilienthal's speech came on the fifth annversary of the successful concluson of experments demon-' strating that the energies within the nucleus of the uranium atom, may be released upon a large scale and can be controlled. This demonstration occurred Dec. 1, 1942 on the athletic field of the University of Chicago under tha direction of Enrico Fermi, famed Italian scientist. Lilienthal said the nation has spent about $2,500,000,000 in. the atomic enterprise. "If this country really business then within the next several years this total expenditure will increase to approximately $5 000,000,000, he added. Explaining why the government recently has allowed a group of businessmen and engineers access to secret atomic information, Lilienthal said such information must be available to chosen groups if the country is to advance rapidly in developing atomic energy both for peaceful and military uses. 42 Attend Scout Drive tive particles. way between It lies about half- Hawaii and the Philippines and the closest big land -. , miles to me southwest.

It also announced settlement of a political dispute in Milan, where Leftists almost seized power Friday in vehement and forcible protests against replacement of the prefect (governor of Milan Porv- mce) Ettore Troilo, a Leftist. Taken together, the two actions eased considerably the heavy pressure under which Premier Alcide De Gasperi's government has been operating for the past month. Reports continued to circulate, however that Communist-led labor organizations intend to call a general strike in Italy soon, to coincide with one in France. The reports ha e been denied by the Leftists.

Interior Minister Mario Scelba announced settlement of the Milan dispute. He said Troilo, with whom he conferred at length yesterday, had agreed to give up his post on Thursday to Dr. Celona, now prefect of Padua, who would govern the province until Dr. Vincenzo Ciotola, the prefect of Turin, fin- jished a short vacation. Dr. Ciolola was the man originally chosen to replace Troilo. Scelba said last week's disorders in Milan resulted from a "misinterpretation" of the national government's action in grating Tro- ilp's request that he be given a diplomatic post. Troilo said today he thought the solution would allay passions in Milan.

Lamarre, self-styled "dummy" president of a war contract firm, went before a federal grand jury today promising to "tell all" about his dealings with Mau. Gen. Bennett E. Meyers. Before entering the jury room Lamarre told reporters he plans a court suit to recover $10,000 he claims the retired- general owes ^im, . .The grand jury is investigating testimony before a Senate Committee tnat General Meyers realized more than $150,000 profits from the concern Lamaree headed. "I'm ready to tell the grand jury all I know—without reservation," Lamarre told reporters. The 35-year old witness told the Senate War Investigating Commit-" tee that he kicked back most of his salary to General Meyers, wartime deputy air forces procurement chief, retaining only about $50 a week as president of the Aviation Electric Company, Dayton, Ohio. Lamarre, who now calls Meyers a "snake," followed his young brunette wife to the grand jury room. His prospective $10,000 court claim against Meyers, "Lamarre told newsmen, is in the hands of Robert C. Knee, Dayton attorney. Lamarre said it will be based on the $20,000 realized in liquidating the aviation electric company. Lamarre claims he was to have received half of this settlement. "I sent General Meyers a letter on September 6," Lamarre said, "asking him to return my money. The only replies I've received have been stalls—all stalls." ; The grand jury's first principal witness yesterday was attractive Mrs. Mildred Lamarre, once Meyers' secretary. ' Meyers, denying he is guilty of any fraud, told the Senate Committee he established the airplane parts firm and made Lamarre its president because Mrs. Lamarre was his "girl friend." Mrs. Lamarre said that was a lie. Thomas E. Readnower, vice president of the Dayton firm and Mrs. Lamarre's brother, was another witness subpoenaed for today. Both Lamarre and Readnower asked have charged that Meyers them to tell a "concocted" story to the Senate Committee to .cover up-his; .connection; with>,the -Dayton firm. .'• .::•..

The World Is Full of Strange Incidents and Here Are Some That Should Prove Interesting By HAL BOYLE New York —i quarrel bitterly over the of $100,000 in American Post-war international philanthropy certainly has its odd .moments: (1) In Manhattan an Irish hack driver kills his own horse to help feed starving Europe, and is promptly arrested by police. (2) In Italy two small war- wrecked towns in the beachhead area where thousands of U. S. troops lie buried — Anzio and Nettuno — division gifts. The two stories point some kind of a moral on the spirit of' giving —and the spirit of sharing. Let's first consider the case of John Horkin and his eight-year-old horse, Portaslain, familiar to thousands of New York visitors who've taken rides through Central Park in Horkin's old-fashioned hansom cab. When Portaslain went lame, Horkin, who had been brooding over the hunger in Europe, decided to slaughter this horse he loved, pickle the meat and turn it over to an organization sending charitable contributions to Europe. He knew that horsemeat is a delicacy there now in some areas. "And with the coming winter," he said, "I was convinced that thousands would die." A practical man with experience in slaughtering animals in his native county, Mayo, Ireland, Horkin decided to do the job himself. So Saturday night he took his horse into the basement of a riding academy, tied it to the bottom of an elcvaor and then ran the elevator up to the first floor, thus permit, the bachelor told thirty-nine police who year-old pointed out he had destroyed his own means of livelihood: get along without the $8 make from the cab." iiut he was sorry about one thing.

S. Army C-VJ transport plane, lost since Friday with 20 persons aboard. •.'. Searchers reported they picked up radio signals, apparently from a downed craft, which said planes could be heard overhead, but no tenable clue was found by air crews or foot patrols. U. S. Air Force officials said they had "an unconfirmed report" that search planes had sighted a crashed aircraft near the old Maginot line town of Bitche. The French press agency reported early in the day that a U. S Army transport plane had crashed near Lemb'erg, six miles from Bitche, but later said it was "rechecking" its information. An Associated Press reporter in the area said he could find no official report of a plane having been sighted. Just before darkness set in, snow began falling and all search planes except a single B-29 Superfortress were withdrawn. That plane flew over the area between Bitche and Pirmasens, in 'the French zone of Germany. The transport was lost on a flight from Pisa, Italy, to Frankfurt.

DAIDSON Jerusalem, Dec. 2 —(/P)—A test, of blood and fire began today for' the Palestine partition plan when thousands of angry Arabs swept through Jerusalem, wrecking, burning and looting Jewish buildings. '< Jews counterattacked in bloody fighting. Rioting broke out at other points in the Holy Land, and the casualty toll in mid-afternoon by unofficial count 'reached four Jews dead, 29 Jews wounded and nine Arabs injured. Mobs put the torch to 50 buildings in Jerusalem, both Jewish and Arab. Jewish sources estimated the property damage at more than $1,000,000. Many of Jerusalem's buildings still were burning this afternoon when police and troops restored a semblance of order. The Arabs began their attacks at dawn, with the opening of a three-day Arab strike called by the Arab higher executive to protest the United Nations partition decision. Jews in trucks and afoot counterattacked swiftly. Firing broke out at two places tonight on.the border of all-Arab Jaffa and all-Jewish Tel Aviv. The supreme commander of Ha- gana, the Jewish underground de- ense militia, charged that large number of Arabs in the Negcb desert area "have been ordered to at- ta'ck settlements there." His com- munique, issued at Tel Aviv headquarters of Hagana, said the militia had "taken necessary defense measures." A pall of smoke over Jerusalem dimmed a bright sun. Hagana fire ighting brigades, armed with clubs and buckets, deployed about all Jewish residential sections. Many young: girls were among them. The Jewish forces appeared well dis-; ciplined. Six Jews were arrested in the wreckage of St. Julian's Way after a chase across housetops. Police said the six, who carried revolvers and grenades, wer,e sniping at Arabs.

However misguided his act, Horkin's simple sincerity stands in decided contrast to ihe spirit shown in the controversy raging in Italy between the mayors of Anzio and Nettuno. The two towns are adjacent beach resorts and ancient rivals. Recently two upper New York state towns — Dunkirk and Fre- dpnia — raised $100.000 in good will gifts of food, clothing and other supplies for battered Anzio. Gloom-ridden citizens of Nettuno. convinced their town had carried the brunt of the Allied Iteiding more than Anzio, sent Mayor Mario De Francheschi to ask for a share of the American gifts. De Francheschi reported that the Anzio mayor, Malvito Vecchiarelli, rebuffed Nettjnp's request and added insult to injury by declaring the gifts had been made to Anzio "not because Anzio is the location of an American cemetery, but because the people of Dunkirk probably like this town better than others." Informed of ihe controversy Mayor Walter F. Murray of Dunkirk, N. Y., said it was an "unfortunate situation" but that "I proved It is pital construction will start under the plan before the fiscal year ends on next June 30. Two states have passed appropriations to grant state aid in addition to the Federal and local funds allocated to the project. The program includes both hospitals and health centers. Arkansas, incidentally, is the only state which has disregarded county boundaries in setting up the plan, working on the theory that a plan based, on natural barriers, transportation facilities, need and like matters will correspond more nearly to the actual need than one based on political boundaries alone. Approval of the Arkansas, plan will result in hospital and health center work in the neighborhood of $6,000,000 for the year, ond eventually will bring adequate hospital and medical care in reach of every ctiizen of the state. The discussion will be led by Mr. Moody Moore and Mr. J. W. Cuddington of the State Board of Health.
