Shoe Firm Is Charged by Government Washington, Dec. 15 — (IP)— Attorney General Clark today charged the United Shoe Machinery Corporation of Boston with establishing.a monopoly in production of machinery for making shoes. Clark announced a civil antitrust suit was filed this morning in the U. S. District Court at Boston, under the Sherman Anti Trust act.

The announcement said the company manufactures over 9U per cent of mosi of the important types of shoe machinery "and is the only company in this country which can completely equip a shoe factory with all necessary machinery." The attorney general said the corporation's alleged monopoly "has destroyed tne independence of the shoe industry of the United Stales. Assistant Attorney General John R. Sonnelt, whose antitrust division was instructed by Clark several 'months ago to concentrate on any evidences of monopolistic practices in the food, clothing and housing fields, said in a statement that united shoe machinery corporation "has acquired 4,172 patents since 1930." "it uses only 363 of these in machines introduced since 1930," Sonnett asserted. "Most of its patents have been laid away on me shelf. "United has compelled manufacturers to use obsolete shoe machinery, -thus retarding the introduction of mass production techniques in the manufacture of shoes and preventing reductions in shoe manufacturing costs by the use of modern machinery." ; o About one-third of the American people live in areas without public libraries. aw- A LASTING• -IN-VE'STMENT IN < t (MA M.

Inflation isn't a malady which attaches itself to any particular form of economy, but is as common as measles in these unhealthful postwar days. Even mighty America has a rash and the sniffles.

Italy, Austria, and Chairman Vandenberg (R-Mich) of the Senate Foreign Relations committee told reporters the emergency bill — representing a compromise between House and Senate versions of the winter relief program — might be cleared by both Houses during the day and sent to Mr. Truman's desk. But even with this measure out of the way. new efforts were in prospect to trim the money outlay by means of the all-important appropigation legislation. There were reports that a cut ranging between $50,000,000 aad $100,000,000 or more, would be recommended than doubled between 1900. 1800 and to the House by its appropriations committee. On lop of this, Mr. Truman seemed likely to learn at first hand, from Republican and democratic chieftains that the long-range Marshall plan is in for considerable controversy before it can be brought to a final decision in the regular session of Congress starting in January. At about tne same time there were reports that this country, concerned over the recent disorders in Italy stemming from Communist-led strikes, was arranging to ship machine guns, rifles and ammunition to bolster the stripped- down Italian army and auxiliary police force. These reports drew no official comment, but il was learned lhal officials are considering extending such military assistance by means of a credit for the purchase of surplus war goods. This would not require congressional action, a welcome situation to the ad- minislralion, which already faces at least two likely fights over Ihe Marshall plan.

Naturally the Russian man-in- fi the street and his family are far from happy to have the ax applied to their savings. The Moscow radio said the exchange rale for cash will be as high as ten old rubles for one of the new issue, and a ninety per cent slash in hard- earned savings is tough. There's some easement of the hardship in the qualification thatr* for desposit in savings banks, *~ amounts up to 3,000 rubles will be exchanged al the even rate of one for one. Also, the government promises that rationing will be abolished on all food and industrial goods this month. The offcial decree regarding dc- valualion said lhat the new currency is necessary because wartime monetary issues and a ilood of false rubles put out by invading German troops inflated the economy so that some goods have / oeen selling for 10 to 15 times their (.' prewar price. The decree also aims at speculators who have been "accumulating great amounts of money, aiming at profits at the expense of the population." When the so-called "panic buying" began some folk hastily decided that Russian economy was collapsing. However, close observers declined, to adopt this thesis. U. S. Under Secretary of State Rober A. Lovelt lold the Senate Appropriations committee that the.,, situation didn't indicate a break-! : down of Sovet economy, and that it would be a mistake to attach too much importance to the Russian buying spree. Of course this appraisal has to do with the current situation in Russia, and has no bearing .on what may develop there in the future. The fact thai Ihere is inflation in Ihe Soviel Union now obviously doesn'l prove lhal the communist system of economy can't be mode to work, any more than inflation in the United Slalcs proves f - t lhal an economy based on private-• enterprise is wrong. So far as the economy of Communism is concerned, only time will demonstrate exactly what effect it will have on Russia and the countries which Moscow has •brought under Red Domination. One thing seems clear, and this is thai a totalitarian government can make any sort of economy — no matter how extreme—work for a time. We saw Mussolini do it: We saw Hitler do it, and we have seen the Muscovilcs do it. Few ( ) things are beyond a police slale which has Ihe power of life and dealh over ils subjects and can make them use beans for cash if il wants to. However, the fact that an economy can be made lo work under duress doesn'l prove to be good, Ihere are many economisls of the western world who believe strongly that the Communist economy will blow vtp in clae course. But there seems to be little disposition lo accept Ihe present inflation in Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H.

Aboord the 4,522-ton vessel was its full complement of 1.600 passengers. But this time to buck the buccaneers were seven well armed guards. . , .. , ••; The"-Van -Heutz was-.defenseless yesterday. About 25 pirates.leisure- ly roamed her decks and gathered up loot valued by a ship's officer at a half-million U. S. dollars. The freebooters carried off six pas- senters for ransom, presumable to some hideaway on Bias Bay, 30 miles northeast of this British colony. The Van Heutz returned to port. Shinning officials said the boarding of the Van Heutz was the latest instance of a postwar resurgence of piracy plaguing coastal shipping lanes. Singapore and Hong Kong are reported the main plotting sta- ;ions of pirates, who are using modern methods. They are reported to be operat- ng a modern intelligence system. Officials said most pirates apparently travel as well dressed passengers, seizing control of a ship at some predetermined point where confederates lie in wait. That is what seems to have happened in the Van Heutz raid. Bias Bay is a notorious hideoul for Chinese sea raiders. From 1922 lo 1928, thirty-four ships ranging from small junks to steamers of more than 2,000 tons fel victims lo coastal pirates. The raids reached a peak in 1923 during troubled mainland conditions. One of the boldest buccaneers during the raiding rush was an unidentified Chinese woman who took sen claims includes the names oi "government insiders." Senator Ferguson (R-Mich) told a reporter that if the Senate Appropriations committee is denied ac cess to the names of large traders he will seek a subpoena to obtair the list either from government records or from individual brokers "If we can't get it the easy way from the' government, we can take •he long way and get it from the brokers." the Michigan senatO: declared. Meanwhile, Secretary of Agri culture Anderson, who has the in formation the committee wants, i known to have conferred privately \vith Chairman Bridges (R-NH). Bridges declined 'to comment on the outcome, but there were strong indications that Anderson may refuse officially to make the names public. J. M. Mehl, adminislratior for the commodities exchange au- Ihorily of which Anderson is a member, already has told the committee he believes the law forbids his giving the names to Congress. Bridges and .Ferguson have dis-: puled this, with indications that a formal demand will be made on Anderson. Pending the outcome, committee experts have been conduction an inquiry intp reports that some persons connected with the Agriculture Departmenl have been active in market trading.

GONZALES Washington, Dec. 16 — (UP) — Dissatisfaction is certain to result n Russia over the new currency :hanges but it would be folly to be- ieve the action will jeopardize the Soviet regime, state department of- "icials said today. Officials who have a first-hand knowledge of Russia said thousands upon thousands of Russians, jrincipally in the peasant classes, ost large amounts of their ruble holdings under the new exchange rates. Although the Soviet decree was aimed at speculators, Russian farmers and the man-in-the-street were said to have suffered financially in these ways: 1. A large segment of the Russian population has never adopted a practice of putting money in banks.

Those who withdrew rubles spent them on luxury goods thus wiping out their chances of pur- cnasing additional amounts of food and other necessities.

This line was accompanied by assurances that the currency switch would be the "last sacrifice" to be asked of the Russian, people as a result of the war. '. .;Despite the announced reduction ^vsome. P»ces..and elimination of rationing, experts - •:on Soviet' af-' fairs poijnted out that prices are still higher in Russia than they are in the United States. Soviet wages, on the other hand, are lower. The average Soviet worker's monthly wage was said to be about 450 rubles. This amounts to about ?90 at the official exchange rate of 5.3 rubles to $1. American factory workers in September earned an average of $201.80, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. On the basis of new prices posted in Moscow yesterday, a Soviet buyer will pay about 54 cents for 2.2 pounds (one kilogram) of black bread and $1.40 for the same amount of white bread.

Phyllis sat on a divan in the living room, looking at snapshols. He fired once from Ihe doorway and Ihe bullet struck her in Ihe shoulder. Then he went around in front of her, fired a shot through her forehead, and pumped three more bullets into her head and body. After she slumped over, he dragged her body to the basement, hen ran from Ihe house. Brookshire said the boy first told Police Chief M.L. Cline that two masked men had entered the !ioase and knocked him unconscious. He said lhat when he recovered his sister had gone and that ne feared she had been kidnaped. Officers doubted his story when he showed no evidence of having been struck, and when they found the .22 caliber rifle in a closet of the home.

Police said he had concealed the poison, believed to have been bi- choloride of mercury, in the heel of his shoe. He swallowed il during a recess in the trial. The suicide alle-mpt came shortly afler Mrs. Ruth Vick of Philadelphia, told the pury of 10 men and two women that Hurley had wooed here, won her, married her, taken her money and disappeared. "He left me on a street corner last February." she said. "He said he was going to the barber shop for a haricul. That was the last time I saw him until today." Hurley has been accused of -marrying several women for their money, but none of the official es- limales even approached his own boast made shortly before the suicide attempt yesterday. "Wives," he said, "I've got 55 of them." Federal aulhorilies paid liltle al- tention lo the boasl. Some of them said Ihey felt certain that Hurley probably is a bigamist, but doubted if the total ran as high as 55 women. Linus J. Hammond, assistant U. S.

It is the anniversary of the opening of the famous "battle of the bulge" — a Johnny-come-late version by Germany of Japan's disaster-laden surprise blow at Pearl Harbor. It should also be a red-letter day in the American military calendar forever, a reminder that a failing foe always has a convulsive throe before his end, a snake its final fang. The battle began on the dark morning of snowy horror with the Allied top command convinced war on the western front would be over in a matter of weeks. By that same nightfall realistic officers who had survived the German breakthrough at Kasserine gap in Africa knew that the American armies were fighting for their very lives. Out of nowhere the beaten enemy had suddenly rallied its last reserves of tanks and guns rnannec by tough young S.

But th Nazi leaders knew the land as you do the road to your own garage— because .twice before, in 1914 and 1940, they had rolled through these pine-clad Ardennes mountains on th* way to France. . They charged through two thml> strung out American divisions — the battle-worn 28th infantry anf 4 the untried 106th — and plunge on for more than forty miles t within three miles of the Mues river, a goal that would have cu for the Allied forces in half. — 5, Preparing to launch their QW following the two-weeks vacation, razzle-dazzle across the Batae til Marianna Hutson Schoonover, son, Larry, and his parents Arma.
