The document, a product of last summer's conference at Rio De Janeiro, provides for all treaty nations to act jointly against any aggression in this part of the world. Cor.nally, ranking minority member of the Foreign Relations Committee, described the treaty as "a long step in the direction of guaranteeing the safely and security of the American republics from aggression or attack by any power outside this hemisphere." Declaring that it embodies "the lofty principles" of the Monroe Doctrine and "vitalizes and makes definite that it is a policy for the protection and security- of all the American states," the Texan add- in Moscow negotiate for purcnabi' goods. They aic Britain, Belgium, Luxembourg, Noiway and Sweden. "It guarantees the liberties and political institutions of the western world. It is a challenge to any alien or foreign influence that may seek to infiltrate with insidious foreign doctrines, or, to conquer by arms any rrepublic of the western world. "It makes clear that there is a sanctuary where liberty and constitutional free government shall enjoy the opportunity to grow and develop according to the wishes and desires of the people of these republics with a respect for the rights and sovereignty of all other slates of the hemisphere and with the noble purpose of promoting the peace of the world." Chairman Vandenberg (R-Mich) of the Foreign Relations Committee predicted earlier there would be "no controversy" during the debate. The committee recommended 13 to 0 that the Senate ratify the treaty. Such action requires a two- thirds majority. The treaty was signed by all the American nations except Ecuador Hog Cagers Prepare for Tour Fayetteville, Dec. 8 — (/P)— In their last "tuneup" for major tests in New York and Philadelphia, th University of Arkansas Raxorbacks will play the Culver-Stockton college basketball team here tonight.

These cases are in addition to previously reported instances of federal worker dismissals for disloyalty or reasons of doubtful loyalty. Since 1942, when Congress made provision for such action, about 55 persons have been fired from army or air force civilian jobs. Both programs are designed to guard leaks of military information or other intelligence to foreign powers either intentionally or carelessly. Mililary men explain that a "bad security.risk" is not necessarily disloyal —i he may be given to talking loo much or otherwise have habits likely to make secret- qme "moot" before the tribunal an consider it agam Under the mellowing influence of he supreme court, [actions in- r olved in the heated row, cooled iff appreciably and agreed for supreme court review at some alter daty lubmitted. -when briofs can be At issue is jurisdiction over the jra'rland chancery couit in the absence of Chancellor Sum Garratt. Involved — bJt almost overlooked • — is the authority of Hot Springs Mayor Earl Ricks lo appoint George "Jallahan as chief of police, The supreme court had before it today a petilion for a writ of prohibition to prevent Circuit Judge -lyde H. Brown from hearing a chancery court case filed againsl Mayor Ricks as result of ths chief of police appointment. Tha\' writ was sought by C. Floyd Huff, acting Garland county chanccJlor, and Ernest Maner, attorney for the plaintiff in the suit against Ricks. Filed Ihis morning and consolidated with the petilion of Huff and a petition by Mayor writ to restrain Huff Maner was Ricks for ij from acting as special chancellor. The dispute flared last week when Maner sought a temporary injunction to prevent the appointment of Callahan. He attempted to have the case heard by Huff as acting chancellor but Judge Brown assumed jurisdiction of the case, ordered it dismissed and Ihreal- ened to jail both Huff and Maner for contempt of court. It was then that Maner and Huff asked the supreme court for the writ of prohibition against Brown. After a phone call to Brown by Chief Justice Griffin Smith the matter was held in abeyance pending the hearing today. Shortly before court convened Attorneys Walter Herbert and Julian Glover filed Ricks' petition charging that Huff was not properly elected as provided by law and had not taken the oath of office and thus was not authorized tc serve as acling chancellor. For Ihe purpose of convenience the court consolidated the two pe- tilions. During nearly Iwo hours of Allhough no specific projecls Were mentioned by authorities who disclosed the banning of some con- Iracl workers from jobs, the policy is understood lo embrace all "classified contracts." Presumably contracts of this kind would include conslruction work for experimental or development projects including such items as atomic energy and weapons, rockets, new bases and the recently announced plan lo build an atomic weapons proving ground ai Eniwelok atoll in the Pacific. In addition to applying security checks to civilians in both regular government and contract jobs, the military services also arc screening their own uniformed personnel to sift out the unwanted. The army department has said a shortage of investigators has "seriously hampered" such investiga- lions, bul the number of officers or enlisted men dropped from Ihc army has nol been disclosed officially. The mililary services rule thai "membership in or close afillia- tion with the Communist party is inimical to Ihe nalional securily" and llial officers or men may be dismissed from service if found lo be Communisls. Failure of an officer lo make a complete list of all organizations of which he has been a member are grounds for revocation of his commission, under Ihe policy. Enlisted men foand to have "divided loyalty can be discharged by the secretary of war 'for convenience of the government' and probational officer commissions inay be revoked at any time 'at the pleasure of the president'," army files show. argument was disclosed that Chancellor Sam Garratt is scheduled to relurn Ihis afternoon from a trip to Florida.

Deputy Prosecutor Nlhan Soen- feld, who represented Judge Brown ut the hearing loday, lold Ihe cour that the judge "may have gone a liltle too far" in assuming jurisdiction of the chancery case. It was agreed however, that Judge Brown's dismissal of the action would sland since il was done "without prejudice" which means the case can be refilcd at any lime. II also was agreed lhal a con- tempi charge against Maner would '':e dropped. It developed that Huff was designated by attorneys present last Tuesday to serve as acting chancellor in hearing uneontesled divorce cases. Seventeen of ihese were passed on. Huff indicated today thai he intended to seek a supreme court | determination of the issue in order lo clarify his status. STARTS DEC. 8th ONE TABLE LAMPS Designs for modern or period rooms.

J This has been a sore subject [: with the South for many years, j!and now finally one Southern sen- I ator, J. W. Fulbrighl of Arkansas, I proposes lo get Ihe tax repealed.

Yet that fury, unless carefully controlled, can cause the 'Alive opposition to Ihem lo become ineffectual and even ridicu- Communists in France to Defy Ultimatum Paris, Dec. 9 —(/P)— Communist labor leaders gave every indication today that they intend to defy a cabinet ultimatum ordering France's 2,000,000 strikers to get back on the job by tomorrow or feel the militant wrath of their government. Benoit Frachon, the Communist secretary general of the General Confederation of Labor (CGT), to which the ultimatum was delivered last night, expressed extreme dissatisfaction with the terms of the cabinet statement, offering bonuses and promises of the strikers. The Central National Strike committee, a solidly Communist group of CGT leaders operating independently, declared immediately that its strike order still stood and added that steps even were being of the work stoppages, which have taken to strengthen effectiveness of the work stoppages, which have crippled the French, economy. Premier Robert Schuman's new offer to the strikers, made last night, provided: 1. Strikers must return to work by tomorrow. 2. For so doing, they will receive — as will the millions who did not strike — cost-of - living bonuses of 1,500 francs ($12.50) a month, dating from Nov. 24. 3. In addition, the government will undertake immediate studies in an effort to sta-bilize salaries and prices, retroactive to Dec. 1. 4. Further, the government will not attempt to prosecute strikers, excep those guilty of sabotage, violence preventing non - strikers from working or other violations of the new anti - strike law. 5. Strikers will receive no pay (were convinced, as today's meet:or time lost during the walkouts, i. n g of the Council of Foreign Min- Duck Hunters Must Quit at 4 Each Day Little Rock, Dec. 9 — (/P)— Arkansas duck hunters must cease firing at approximately 4 p. m. daily during the current duck season, Game and Fish Commission Secretary T. A. McAmis said today. The new federal migratory bird regulations require that hunting stop one hour before sunset which according to the weather bureau here ranges from 4:b7 p. m. today to 5:11 p. m. on January 0 —final day of the season. Last year hunting was permitted until 3U minutes before sunset. Shooting begins at sunrise which will be from 7:06 a. m. today to 7:18 a. m. Jan. 6. McAmis said- that in checking hunters yesterday, opening day of the duck season, some late hunters were found who were unaware of the change in shooting time. He said that his own field trip and reports from his staff indicated that hunting was good yesterday particularly in Ihe Grand Prairie area with majority of the hunters reporting their limit which this year is four ducks daily. . o _ Marshall to ForceShowdown With Mololov By JOHN M.

Wine said today. Wine also said that when the hearing is scheduled, the commission probably would hear the company's direct testimony and then lous. It can harm the innocent, i adjourn the hearing to permit the nnrl it rnn sirpnfHipn thp uprv commission staff and representa isters gol underway, thai hinls of concessions given in Molotov's ac- lions lasl nighl would not be borne oul on real issues. Marshall's slralegy apparenlly was to strip one of these major issues, probably reparalions, down to its bare essentials and try to get a clearcut decision on agreement or disagreement. Diplomatic experts of all three vestern delegalions considered the •eal state of relations between Russia and Ihe western powers is rep- i-esented more by developments in Europe 'than by the diplomatic maneuvers going on here. Developments considered signifi- canl in Ih.is respect were Russia's angry note to France today over renalrialion, coupled with Ihe dis- ruplion of Soviel-French trade negotiations, and Russia's action clos- ng a section of ils Austrian occupation zone to travel between the American zone and Czechoslovakia The council's meeting today was its 13th of the London conference, on Germany's fuure. and it can strengthen the very thing it would stamp out. Mr. Johnston, president of the Molion Piclure Associalion of America, recalled some dangers of an unchecked fury in an address before the Picture Pioneers in New York. He caulioned againsl "our anger getting out of hand until every American who stands for progress is damned as a Red and fll Communist." He warned thai "it musn't be a crime in this country lo crilicize." Such advice is familiar. Bui some aspccls of Ihe first round of the Thomas Committee's inves- ligalion of Hollywood communism, for inslance, would suggesl that Ihe advice will bear repealing. The 10 stubborn witnesses, who refused lo testify on their alleged communism, didn't emerge as shining heroes, as Mr. Johnston .noinled out. Yel their investiga- i*/rs failed lo bring forlh any startling disclosures. The committee's chief weakness was pointed up by Mr. Johnston when he said thai "While our (Ihe film) induslry is:, being X-rayed for communism at "home, Russia and some of its satellite stales are excluding our films as inslru- menls of capilalisl propaganda." This does not mean lhat communism should not be investigated. It does mean, however, thai Ihe investigators should be reasonably •itUre of their quarry before they atlack. There are some ralher important mailers lo be sellled, il seems to us, before communism in America can be foughl mosl effectively. One of ihem concerns the legality of the Communist Parly.

Marshall of comprehen sive set of proposals for the economic unification of Germany (2) When Marshall asked whether acceptance of the Russian demand for $10,000,000,000 in reparations from Germany was a "condition" for Soviet acceptance of oerman economic unity, Moiotov asserted: • "The unlawful patent and olher activities with which these defendants are charged have resulted in arbitrary prices which the American automobile owners have had to pay and are slill paying for Ihe braking systems on their passenger cars, trucks and buses."

In a woman il produces merely a sense of inius- lice. No man who has lo wreslle with his conscience ever won three falls in a row. The machine never will completely supplant Ihe horse until someone leaves his money to a lime clock. The deer who keeps his liberty lives as long as Ihe sheep who sells oul for securily. A slubborn man is sure he can explain arthritis to a jellyfish. No one pines for virtue more than a sick rascal. Nothing's fmmv in n woman with a pimple on her nose. A man never has quite hit Ihe bottom as long as he has Ihe luxury of knowing at Icasl one old enemy is worse off than himself. Lhinks thai in this case one of a kind makes a full house. Coldest Weather of Season Chills Sections of U. S. By The Aikoctated Preit The coldest \veather of the season chilled parts of the midwest today as temperatures In some sections of Minnesota dropped to nearly 30 degrees below zero. The ley blasts from Canada, entering in Minnesota, Northern Iowa and Western Wisconsin, spread over the entire Mississippi Valley and the Great Lakes region southward over Texas and eastward across the North Atlantic coast.

A R BOG AST Washington, Dec. 9 — (#•)— Concerned by an unexpected show ol, opposilion strength, backers of the emergency foreign aid bill put on fresh pressure In the House today to resist efforts to slash the administration's $597,000,000 program. Although a showdown originally was set for today there was a possibility the final vote might go over until tomorrow. The program, approved in its full amount bx the Senate, already has been cut to $590,000,000 by the House Foreign Affairs Committee And the committee reduction in effect is even deeper since it added -hina to the list of recipient na- lions and specified $60,000,000 for that country. Hence only $530,000,000 would be available for Italy, Austria and France, the nations President Truman said must have help this winter to save them from disintegra tion. ••'...
