In general everyone seems well pleased with the scene. The sheep are happier and , healthier. Their contribution to science requires an occasional blood donation, and Dr. Turner thinks they recuperate faster-for being in. a belter frame of mind. Not the least beneficiaries are the many commuters who wait on the sideWalk with transfer tickets in hand. There is no better antidote for the jangle of a modern metropolis'than the sight of sheep nibbling clover at yoar feet. "It soothes the spirit," one man commented.

SPRINGER AP Newsfeatures Writer New York —If anybody is betting on chances of war on a basis of past performances, the odds now are against it. There are more examples in American history of serious international arguments having been settled peacefully than there arc of those that culminated in war. As against six declared wars in which the United States has been engaged since the Revolution, there have been ten "times of tension" which ended calmly. War talk has been prevalent during much of the country's existence. The colonies had barely got go ing as a united government when it looked as though they might have to bare muscles against France That was in the 1790's, when the revolutionary French government tried to get America to take its side in its conflict with half a dozen European powers and Britain When the U. S. refused to intervene the French began to hit at American shipping and demanded a loan as appeasement. Al America took up the cry of Charles Cotcsworth Pinckney, arribas sador to France: "Millions foi defense, but not one cent for tribute." Gen. Washington was beckoned from retirement to command the hastily forming army, American seamen armed their merchan' ships and there were numerous skirmishes at sea. War clouds grew blacker and even his bitterest political enemies announced their support of President John Adams' foreign policy. Abruptly, in 1799, the new French j dictator Bonaparte offered a peace treaty. I There was another close call in j 1846 after the Democrats had elect ,lcd J:\mes K. Polk president on a virtual war platform sloganized 1 as "Fifty-Four Forty or Fight." Under the terms of the Louisiana Purchase, the U. S. claimed it had rights to all northwest territory right up to the 50° 40' latitude at the Alaska border. The British had long maintained a counter-claim, . and when discussions got nowhere war talk began to mount. Finally, however, an agreement was reached putting the Oregon boundary at the forty-ninth parallel, its present border. America had three other brushes with the British. In 1863, John Bull grew apoplectic over the "wanton insult ' given by U. S. Marines \yho stopped a British steamer carrying two Confederate envoys on their way to Europe.

Wallace will lead a third party movement in 1948 bobbed up again today to disturb the Democrats and please the Republicans. Wallace aides in New York insist that the former vice president IP.S reached no decision, but Sena;or Brewster (R-Mc) said he has heard that Wallace plans to bolt the Democratic party .and announce his candidacy for president on a new ticket. Brewster said. he was told by persons he .declined to name that (A) Wallace will make his announcement after January 1 and IB) will have the support in New York of the American - - Laboi' party. Walace broke Avith President Truman in; September, 1946, when -he chief executive fired him as Secretary of Commerce for having criticized the policies being pursued abroad by James F. Byrnes, then Secretary of State. Byrnes 'has made it plain in his book, "Speaking Frankly," that he told Mr. TrumatV either he or Wallace would have to go. Wallace went and has devoted much of his time since to lashing out at the administration's bipartisan foreign policy. Wallace has said several times that he would leave the Democrats if they became a "war" parly. Brewster said .it is his information that the former vice president will run on a "peace" ticket, claiming that both major parties are leading the country toward war. • If he runs, Wallace might be an important factor, in the election, particularly if he has American-Labor party support in. New York. That group has backed Ihc democratic nominee in the last few elections, providing at imes some of the needed margin of voles for their favorites, to win. If they split off in a third party campaign with Wallace, domo-cra- tic chances ' would be damaged that much in New York. —Hope Slar photo Here's the 1 KXAR transmitter room.

Also during the Civil War thd British built and loudly applauded Ihe successes of the famed Confederate cruiser Alabama and other vessels which preyed on Union shipping. Northern hot-heads were all tor taking on the British too. And :he feeling was reciprocated. Throughout the early part of the ivil War Britain and France both appeared eager to step in the struggle against the "up-start Yankees." Historians say the Northern victories at Gettysburg and Vicksburg, however, convinced them they were •backing a losing cause. -In 1895, when Britain allegedly violaled the Monroe Doctrine in the Venezuela-British Guiana boundary dispute which had been going on for more than half a century, President Cleveland accused her of "willful aggression." He threatened to "resist by every means" any British appropriation of mineral- rich lands which the U. S. regarded as Venezuelan. In thai case a "get tough" policy paid ofC because Ihe British public, recoiling from the "unthinkable horror" of war, put pressure on their government to arbitrate. Waving the big stick helped produce peace in several other delicate situations. When Napoleon III tried lo set up a French empire in Mexico during the Civil War and was slow in removing his troops Union veterans oiled their funs for action. Napa- Icon, sick of the whole Mexican business anyway, ordered the army home. Twice a show of strength averted what might have developed inlo out-and-out shooting with Germany. In 1883, when a German ronsul hoisted his flag on Samoa —over which lhe U. S. h;ul iniril claims as a protectorate—and 'when German sailors trampled the American flag in lhe streets, President Cleveland rushed warships to 'lhc scene. The willingness of the U. S. to intervene in a matter involving a remote little island —plus a hurricane which put both naval forces out of effective action —are believed to be factors which led Ihc cGr- man Chancellor Bismarck to agree to a joinl protectorate over Samoa by the U. S., Germany and Britain. Thirteen years later Theo.i.orc Roosevelt saw red when German warships blockaded 'Vctur/.iu-ian ports lo enforce a claims settlement. T. R. charged the German:.; with trying tu get some control o-.-cr the approaches to the Janama Canal, then building, and .ho ordered Adm. Dewey to i)e ready for action on an hour's notice. Roosevelt then demanded arbitration al ihc tin-cut of war. The Gorman backed down h.irrii'dly. There had been tense moments \ n 1891. too, when a Chilean niub killed two American sailurs in Valparaiso and injured several others. This argument was .jellied \viieii the Chilean government a|;olo"i-.ed and m >.id $75,000. Relations with . Mt-xicu wore strained during World Wai- 1. In 1914 the U.

UnclerKccrclary of Commerce William C. Foster told a Senale judiciary subcommittee a bill handed to Ihc group by Secrelary Har- viman also would permit the go- vcrnment lo buy up the entire crop of wheat and certain other commodities. Foster explained those rationing and crop-buying powers were contained in a bill designed to give President Truman authority to allocate and fh: priorities on scarce items, including livestock and poultry, steel, grain and grain products frcighl cars and other producls and materials. Moreover, the measure would tfivr; Mi-. Tru.man authority lo allocate any other materials if he found after public hearings that a shortage was basically affecting "industrial production or the cost of living." Senator Cooper (R-Ky) asked Foster whether implicit in such authority to distribute scarce items was the power lo ralion to consumers. "It would include that power,'? Foster replaied. When President Truman presented his 10-point anli-inflalion program to C9iigress he emphasized — and cabinet oficers have since repeated it — that, the administration docs not propose lo use any of lhe powers if Inch use can be avoided; The administration contention is that it should have the power so that it can be used if necessary to halt runaway prices. The measure presented lo the committee would extend export controls, allocation and priorities powers through March 31, 1950. The draft of proposed legislation apparently was submitted to meet increasing complaints by republicans that the administration has failed to be specific in outlining the powers it wants. Such criticism was levelled by Senator Wherry (R-Neb). assislang Republican flood leader, who told a reporter "There has been no constructive or detailed anli- infla- lipn legislation outlined by any t the administration officials the president has sent up here." Wherry said this in expressing doubt the GOP-controllcd Congress will act finally on any anti-inla- ticn during Iho special session. o Life, Death of Arctic Balloonist to Be Filmed Stockholm — (If]— The arctic balloon expedition and tragic death of the polar explorer Salomon August Androe on the ice northeast of Spitzbcrgen will be filmed oy :i-i independent company early next year.

Believes Luxury Liners Are Things of the Post AP Newsfeatures New York —Giant, high speed luxury liners created a colorful chapter in the history of world maritime affairs but no more are likely to be built, says Frank O Braynard, official of the American Marine Institute and author of a new book "Lives of the Liners." (Cornell Maritime Press). Braynard predicts that the ship of the future will be the moderate sized liner like the America, designed for use in luxury cruises in off season periods. Although the Queen Elizabeth world's largest ship, has apparently just begun a successful commercial career, he says, airplane competition and the high initial cost of such: ships make further competition in this field unlikely. Braynard says the French were doubtful about the value of the Normandio even in 1934 when the great ship was being built -and offered to stop construction if the British would stop building the Queen Mary. . The Unilcd Stales never has „ built a superliner. The wartime value of the big fast ships accrues only to the powers which control the sea, he says, adding that .the Axis powers found the Bremen, Europa, Rex and Conte di Savpia of no value in the past war. Besides the superliners, Braynard lists thice other lypes of passenger vessel: express liners, mail liners and smaller ships.
