By JACK SELL. Washington, Dec. 12 — (fP) —The Democratic leadership gave up about its last hope today that Henry A. Wallace could be persuaded not to endanger President Truman's 1948 election prospects by bolting and running on a third party ticket. A cryptic "that's his privilege" was the retort of Senator McGrath (Hi), chairman oi the Democratic National Committee, to Wallace's Buitalo, N. ¥., assertion that if it came to a choice between President Truman and Senator Taft (R Onio) he would vote for Taft, From the Democratic organization standpoint, this put Wallace, former vice president and Roosevelt cabinet member, about as far beyond the pale as he can go with out actually announcing that he himself is going to run as an independent. The Democratic National Com mittee ior months has levelled most of its fire at Talt. A recent party publication contended, for instance, that the Ohio senator rep resents the body of Republican thinking and ought to be me GOP nominee. At his Buffalo news conference yesterday, Wallace also mentioned Jov. Thomas E. Dewey of New lork, another potential GOP candidate, comparing him with Mr. Tru man. "I hesitate to say whether Dewey is a watered down version of Truman or the president is a watered down version of Dewey," he said. Some Democrats commented pri vately that if Wallace hadn't "already made up his mind to bolt, he hardly would go around making such statements. Wallace's lefthanded endorsement was publicly greeted only with laughter in the Taft camp. Taft, an announced candidate !or the GOP nomination, was silent himself. But there were indica ions his friends would have been setter pleased jf Wallace had licked some one else as his favor~.te Republican candidate. Wallace said that in foreign af airs Taft "is the one most likely o take action most likely to keep he peace." This, the Ohioan's >ackers seemingly fear, might be nterpreted hastily as lining up Taft with Wallace's attacks on the bi artisan foreign policy and his ad- ocacy of a softer attitude toward Russia. , Taft has been careful to endorse he course of Senator Vandenberg RMich) in'the letter's espousal oi pipartisan action on foreign af- 'airs. And none of the prospective candidates, except Wallace, seems ikely to advocate any less firm policy toward the Soviets. o Conerly to Play Pro Football Next Season Memphis, Tenn., Dec. 11 —(/P)— Mississippi's Chunkin' Charley Conerly will be pitching footballs icxt season as a pro, he said today.

Petrillo and the American Federation of Musicians (AFL) for violation of the Lea Act which prohibits "feather bedding" in the radio industry. The committee, in a report written by Rep. Carroll D. Kearns, D., Pa., accused Petrillo of having "successfully created a small kingdom within our which he rules." republic, over The continued exercise of such tyrannical.power by any individual or group should. not be countenanced nor tolerated in a free republic," the committee reported to the House.

The report, based on a seven- month investigation by a subcommittee headed by Kearns, also urged the Justice Department to consider whether it can prosecute Petrillo under the anti-trust laws tt recommended five specific leg islative points. 1.

Pauley, Congress whose last run-in with brought about Harold Ickes' resignation from a cabinet job, yesterday was ordered by Chairman Bridges (R-NH) to tell the committee about his grain deal- committee, came up when Senator Ferguson (R-Mich) wanted to now whether Pauley ever was promised a permanent appointment jy Royall, who was sittin a few 'eet away. "The only agreement was that t was to be temporary," Pauley replied. "I said I thought it was ings. Pauley's statement miltee follows: to the com At the time I accepted the position as special assistant to Secretary Royall I was the owner of certain futures and commodities. In accordance with the agreement made with Mr. Royall at that time, I have liquidated approximately 90 per cent of those commodities, re- ducitifi my holdings of grain from 500,000 bushels to approximately 50,000 bushels. Because of carrying out my agreement to liquidate, I am currently more than $100,000.00 worse off than if I had retained the grain. "I have viot had any connection or information relating to any army transactions in listed commodities. In fact, Mr. Royall in my presence issued specific instructions to my executive officer that in order to avoid possible embarrassment and complications that no matters which might come in the office relating to transactions in these items would come to my attention 'out would be referred to others in the department. As a matter of fact, I have not determined what to buy, or when to buy, anything for the army during the time ,1 have been with them and hayenot participated in any transaction relating to any purchases of anything with the sole exception that in one instance I passed on a controversy between two bidders on a fish contract." The former Democratic national treasurer acknowledged trading in advance of his appearance, but insisted the transactions have been "perfectly proper and ethical." The Californian, who took over the army post Sept. 3, described his dealings as a hedge against inflation. He added that more people ought to be buying commodities for the same reason. Pauley told the committee he has dicussed with Senator Taft (.R- Ohioi the possibility that the Senate might confirm him for a permanent position in the department of the army. He said Taft had promised to discuss it with his colleagues and let Pauley know.

Pauley's nomination to be undersecretary of the navy nearly two yars ago led to a row during Senate hearings. President Truman backed Pauley in his dispute with Ickes, and Ickes resigned as secretary of interior. Pauley susbe- quently asked Mr. Truman to withdraw his name from consideration for the navy post. Pauley said he went to Cincinnati to see Taft. He said he consulted the Ohioan because he was being given more difficult and complex duties in the Army Department and he thought that whoever held the position should have a permanent appointment. Taft promised to "think about it" and let him know, Pauley added. Meanwhile Chairman Bridges (R-NH) of the Senate committee told newsmen he is asking "every government department or agency having to do with the purchasing of any commodities" whether any of their employes are using inside information on government purchasing plans to profit on the market. Bridges said the committee has "heard many rumors" that such is the case. Former Gov. Harold E. Stassen of Minnesota, now running for the Republican presidential nomination, aserted in an address at Doylestown, Pa., Wednesday that "insiders" in the Truman administration have made money trading in food and suggested that Pauley, for one. should disclose his market holdings. Pauley is a personal friend of the president. Mr. Truman backed him against Ickes, then secretary of the Interior, in a row nearly two yars ago over the nomination of Pauley to be undersecretary of the navy. Ickes resigned as a result. Royall told the Senate committee yesterday Pauley had advised him he had sold part of his "long" holdings in wheat -— those bought of the Senate Republican Policy lesser period in anticipation of a price rise — and would get rid of the rest as "rapidly as possible consistent with the capital tain statute."

Washburn Not All the Penalties Are on Football Field An unobtrusive news item in this morning's Arkansas Gazette reports that a Big Eight bloc is forming this week-end to set up a select class of high schools which would ^lelerniine the state football championship strictly among themselves. A quick look over the tentative list of schools will convince you that what the Big Eight has in mind is to put Hope behind a big eight-ball.

Two influential Republican senators, Mr. Taft of Ohio and Mr. Smith of New Jersey, have urged that the government take immediate steps to admit its share of the homeless unfortunates. And farm groups in the Middle West have be- ijigun surveys to see what homes and jobs might be available for them. We don't know why the sudden flurry of interest. The essential facts of the displaced-persons problem have not changed in a year or more. Maybe it is just coincidence. Or perhaps the practical as well .as humanitarian aspects of the problem are only now becoming apparent. . But whatever the reason, the interest is encouraging. Senator Smith, recently from a trip to Europe,, thinks ..that this ^Country "shbulcT "admit a reasonable number of displaced Europeans immediately, outside the immigration system. Senator Taft, who also calls for immediate action, would admit America's share under quotas now unfilled because of the wartime halt of immigration. There are about 800,000 persons, Mr. Smith explains, who cannot be resettled. These are the last remnants of the 0,000,000 uprooted by the European war. Driven from countries now dominated by Com- gpuinists, the 800,000 will not go •home for fear of persecution. Almost all of them are in the American, British and French zones of Germany — about 530,000 in the American zone alone. They cannot be left there because, as Mr. Smith says, " the German economy cannot support them and. of course, the United States Army cannot support them indefinitely." All this has been argued before. But now, all of a sudden, the arguments are being listened to. One treason for the Middle West's intcr- ~est undoubtedly is the serious decline in our farm population. More than 2,000,000 persons who left our rural areas during the war did not conic back when it was over. •With aid to Europe shaping up, American farmers have a big job ahead of them, and they know it. It is not a pleasant job to face when trey are short-handed. So the move to bring displaced per sons to this country, and find work for them, is more than an act • of charity. * The great majority of these DPs are from the Baltic and Slavic countries. Thousands from those same countries came to America in the last 75 years and settled in the Middle West. They became good farmers and good Americans. There is no reason to believe thai their unhappy, uprooted country men of today might not do as well. But before they are given thai chance, two things must be done. Congress must pass legislation al- _Jowing them to enter. And. in "fairness to must be a gradually— places for them to go which provide comfort, indepen dence and a chance to do usefu work. With the Senate leader and one of his able colleagues interested ir the first step, and farm, labor anc church leaders working on the sec ond, it finally seems that something is going to be done. Three Die From 'Gang' Bullets, Two Wounded Chicago, Dec. 13 — (/P)— Three gunmen, described by police as "mad dog killers," Went on a shooting rampage last night and early today, shot and killed three men and wounded two others before one of the gunmen was slain by police ana* a second was seized. Bodies of two of the victims of the gang's shooting spree were found in western suburbs at 6 a.m. C.S.T. today, about 10 hours after the trio had slain one man in a South Side garage and abducted four men. Two others who had been taken on the "gang ride" had been shot and wounded and also dumped into a highway in suburban Brookfield. However, one .man, not seriously wounded, telephoned police. The four had been kidnaped at the South Side garage of Nick Kuesis, 40, after the gunmen had fatally shot Nick's brother, John, 33, owner of a used furniture store. Kuesis' slayer was identified by police as Tom Daley, 42, an ex- convict, who was slain by a squad of detectives early today as he attempted to flee from a West Side apartment. His slaying followed the seizure of one of his companions. One of Daley's companions, seized as he entered a West Side hotel where he. was spending his honymoon with his 17-year-old bride of 10 days, was identified by Capt. Eugene Barry as Lowell Fentress, 19. Barry said Fentress told him the third man in. the gang and driver of the car was James Morel- Ii, also 19. Police, who found Daley at Mor- li's apartment, continued their earch for Morelli.

The seven include H.

The others are Negroes. They are Ed Washington, Ralph Crabtree. Eugene Seastrong and Andrew Weaver of Texarkana. The union organizers are charged with whipping a Negro worker after he had crossed a picket line at the strike-bound Texarkana Cotton Oil Company plant, October 6. The Negroes are charged with attempting by threats to prevent another Negro from working in the mill. In a petition supported by statements from 10, persons, all seven charge that "inflamed" feelings in Miller county will prevent them from getting a fair trial on the charge. The petition cites several news articles dealing with their arrest, a preliminary hearing in Municipal Court, statements from Sheriff W. E.

By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Poor old Rome! Twenty years of Fascist Mussolini, and now a bat- le royal with totalitarian Communism which is described by Richard .Vi. Scammon, official of the American Military Government in Germany, as "Fascism with a coat of red paint." However, the flag of the new Italian republic still flies high in challenge to revolutionary tactics, and witn the collapse of the general strike in the capital the government is doing -better-than holding its own. A thoroughly organized and powerful Communist party, drawing its inspiration and orders from Moscow, nas been riding the economically -stricken nation like the old ma'n of "the sea, but while- it s too soon to make categorical predictions, things look brighter and there are good grounds for hope that Italy will pull through. Of one thing we may be dead sure: Red Russia never will abandon its effort to secure domination of the Italian peninsula so long as it has a foothold. The Muscovites mean business with this world revolution of theirs, as witness the explosion in the Big Four Foreign Ministers Conference in London yesterday. Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov is sad to have resumed his better lambasting of Western democracy policies. The storm got so fierce that Secretary of Stae Marshall reportedly declared "it is very difficult to have any respect for the dignity of the Soviet government," and said Molotov's statement was made for "quite another purpose" Mihtn>he l 'pr'oblelWsil<ft arfd for "quite another audience" than the foreign ministers. And British Foreign Secretary Bevin is quoted as characterizing Molotov's tirade as a whole series of insults and complete untruth, and adding that the Russian might at least t..ank tre other ministers for sitting through such a statement. 'Well, that represents the harsh Bolshevist spirit behind the attack on Italian sovereignity. Moscow is particularly anxious to secure control of Italy for several reasons, among which are these: 1. It's essential for furtherance of: the Soviet scheme to defeat the Marshall plan for the Rehabilitation of western. Europe. ••'•' 2. It's vital to the success of ie-'-Red"; 'carripai'gn Hti" '-Sbvietize western Europe. 3. Italy, lying as it does on the Adriatic just across from Red Yugoslavia, would form a powerful defense for this southern flank of Russia's present zqne of influence in eastern Europe. 4. Last — but far from least — the peninsula would provide a magnificent naval and military base through which Russia might achieve a burning ambition running back for generations into the time of the czars, and that is to become a Mediterranean power. Indeed, control of Italy might make Russia the dominant power in the whole Mediterranean and middle eastern area, thus completely altering the present distribution of influence among the great nations, especially Britain, France and America. Italy is a prize for which -Russia is bound to fight to a finish. low around?" Miss Truman, who will sinq; in concert here Monday and Tues- dav. had all the answers. The career versus marriage question was as adroitly handled as tne Posers her father sometimes faces in White House conferences. "I certainly think a girl should pursue a career if she wants it enough," she told a bobby soxer, "About marriage, I wouldn't know. I'm not qualified to say. you see:' Whfn the laughter died down, Miss Truman (none ventured to call her Margaret) got around to thp others. She docsnt get a nary with the music critics, some of whom have been not too flattering about Miss Truman's voi' e. "As a matter of fact. I've learned a lot from the critics." About the Secret Service men: "T don't mind a bit. Theyre verv eood friends. There's one back right now.' Youthful eyes turned in awe the smiling Secret Service man. to . Then came a naive "do they tag alons when you have a date?" While the Secret Service man's face turned crimson, .Margaret laughed heartily. "My goodness, no.

Church's Famed Santa Editorial Made a Believer Out of Virginia By HAL BOYLE New York, Dec. 12 — (/?}— Just came here 30 years ago as refu- 7 OU think il a11 ri S ht to wear bob « . . *-, C3 . . - tl\T ei^v V * fifty years ago a small girl, panged with doubt, sat down and wrote a letter to a newspaper that asked an immortal question — and received an immortal answer. The girl was 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon. Her troubled question: "Please tell me the truth,Ms there a Santa Claus." Today little Virginia is a 58-year- old school principal who never since has questioned the reality of Santa Claus. The newspaperman who answered her back in 1897 with an unsigned editorial published in the New York Sun was Francis P. Church, and his reply has become a part of American Chrstmas folklore: ' "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy." Church went on to point out that there is nothing else real and abiding but the beauty of the unseen world whose passwords are faith, fancy, poetry and romance, and concluded: "No Santa Claus! Thank God, he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood." Church died a number of years ago, and the little Virginia whose faith in Santa Claus he kept is now Mrs. Edward Douglas, a widow and principal of a public school in Manhattan's lower East Side. Curiously, the girl who asked the famous question and the man who gave the famous answer never met or saw each other. "A friend of my family, however. Washington office today. While other union offcials declined to be quote'd offhand, se.y eral said a desire by Lewis for political independence next probably hastened the end. year In view of his strained- relations with other AFL leaders they said it was likely that he did not want to be committed to whatever political role may be played by the new AFL "labor's educational and political league." K. C. Adams, editor of the UMW Journal, told reporters there has been "no deal" with any labor organization to combine f«o rc.es for the election campaign.

He bitterly assailed his colleagues on the council as "intellecutal- ly fat and stately asses." He said the AFL "has no head. It has just growed and haired over." The announcement of the new miner walkout from the federation came from K. C.

It was brought out that in Dis^ trict 10, southwest Arkansas, additional beds are needed. The Texarkana-Ashdown area needs 210 additional hospital beds; the Hope area needs 36 more beds; Prescott-Gurdon area needs 75 beds and 93 beds are needed in the Nash- ville-DeQueen area.
