The Southern Baptisl convention, which closed the largest annual meeting in its history last night voted unanimously to urge individual churches to cooperate "locally with membership of other denominational grouos in setting up standards" for motion pictures and advising people in (her communities "as to whether certain pictures conform to these standards." The convention condemned the motion picture industry for "glamorizing loose morals by exploiting for its own profits baser tendencies in human nature." M. A.

HAPPY ENDING Welborn, Kas., May 12 — (/P) — Hearing that Glenn Masterson, 11,. had fallen in a pond, 20 Welborn volunteer firemen sped to his father's farm yesterday with a resuscitator. The pond, nine feet deep, balked efforts at rescue by wading, so the men feverishly tore a br.eak in the clam with crowbars, spades and rails to drain the pond. As the water flowed out, Glenn came trudging down a road. "Gee," he exclaimed, "you're looking for me?"

Senate Refuses House Changes in Aid Measure Washington, May 12 — (/P)— The Senate refused today to accept House changes in the $400,000,000 Greek-Turkish aid bill and sent it to a Senate-House Committee to work put a compromise. Chairman Vandenberg (R-Mich) of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee asked for the action. In passing the,, legislation last Week, the House failed to include a provision calling for Senate confirmation of the top administrators of the program. It also wrote in a clause requiring FBI loyalty screening of all administrative etn- polyers. Vandenberg was named to head Senate conferees. •? i Broadway By JACK O'BRIAN New York—Youth may have its brief fling elsewhere, but right now on Broadway it is not youth but age which is flinging its veteran weight around. Maurice Chevalier, for instance, a young lad of 58 with gray hair and a slight paunch, was the hottest little fellow on the street of motor so, and his show included just Maurice plus one lone piano player. Just about the hottest thing in show business is another gentleman past 60, Al Jolson, who • made his sensational comeback by the simple expedient of singing the tunes on a sound track while Larry Parks made like Jolie as a lad in the swell film, "The Jolson Story." And let's look around the cafesr At the Latin Quarter a pert little glamor doll, Sophie Tucker by name, is bringing in Broadway's largest audiences and she also is past 40. Benny Fields is tha star of the show at the Copacabana; Benny noted the 27th anniversary of his marriage to Blossom Seeley erstwhile musical comedy queen on the night he started his current engagement. At the Vanity Fair, Broadway's newest glittering collection of sequins and white leather, Jack Pearl, the Bob Hope of a decade or more ago, is making audiences roar with his venerable Baron Munchausen routines. Gus Van, who has been around Broadway lor more years than this reporter nas been alive, just closed at Leon and Eddie's to make room for Eddie Davis, the co-owner and star of that rowdy 52nd Street spot; and Eddie's been shouting his naughtily noisy lilts since well be- tore Repeal. At La Martinique, Leo Carrillo, veteran of every facet of show business, has just left after a starring .stint. Phil Regan, once a Times Square cop and now a stage and screen star, just closed at the Roxy Theater where his youthful exterior and crooning style belie the :act that he is a grandfather. Another grandpappy, called in various quarters the Older Girls' •Sinatra, The Glamorous Grandfather, the Bloomer . Girls' Pinup ooy, is Carl Brisson, who among Babies Get New Sfioes With joyous shouts Jap youngsters in a Tokyo school hail arrival of a shipment of shoes for distribution to pupils. They prefer these western-style shoes to the traditional wooden clogs, worn by Nipponese children for centuries. other details is Rosalind Russell's fathor-m-law and one of the fashionable saloun singers of any season. He's presently at the smart Versailles. And on th,e Broadway stage: Bobby Clark, well up in his sixties, is the incredibly antic star of "Sweethearts," and the agreed funniest man on the famous mazda artery. The favorite feminine musical comedy star is not an actual oldlimcr but she's been a rousing hit since the late 19i!0's when she first sang "i Got Rhythm" in "Girl Crazy"—Ethel Merman of ''Annie Get Your Gun." Bert Lahr, another veteran of every phase of show business, is the star of the revived "Burlesque.' Helen Playes is the town's comedy delight in "Happy Birthday," and while it is not polite to bring up that talented lady's age, let's just say that she is no longer an ingenue. Frank Fay of "Har- v-ey" is sensitive about his age, too, but his friend Bert Wheeler says Fay is seven years older than he, and Bert admits to being past 50! Both Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fon- tznne, stars of "O Mistress Mine," are within a couple of years of GO, and they continue to play romantic roles like a pair of timeless juveniles. To paraphrase that familiar oldie about youth being a wonderful thing and too bad its wasted on the young—the adage now is that youth is a wonderful thing and no one seems to let go of it. At least not on' Broadway.

Aaer people have exhausted themselves in dispute, the premier lold Mr. Marshall, Ihey then 'recognize tha necessity of compromise. The essence of Mr. Stalin's polite observation is that the best way for two men to settle an argument is for them to knock themselves out f'ghting first of all, and then try (: ','t .E-stt.le things reasonably.., ' *Thal is indeed a primitive technique. It is the technique of war, which the United Nations was meant to discredit and abolish. Bat we wonder if Mr. Stalin was being entirely frank when he made this rather meditative statement. Docs a man or a government really set oiit lo settle disputes in the manner described'.' Or isn'l the premier's solution instead a matter of second choice? When an aggressor nation resorts to war to settle a dispute, it has no thought of reaching a compro- *;)ise through mutual exhaustion. Exhaustion, surely—but only on the other side. This seems to be the policy of negotiation lhal Russia brought into her postwar dealings with her allies. II is evident, that their government was pushing toward goals as definite as military objectives. And it was-pushing toward them with the sustained intensity of a military attack. It is this technique that sets Russian diplomacy apart. The usual diplomatic system is to strike a • ood bargain as possible, but to get an agreement in any event. No so with the Russians. They admit to no question o_f the rightness of Iheir views. When resistance is weak, as in Ihe Baltic and Balkan countries, they win their objectives .simply by overwhelming the opposition. When resistance is stronger they light as tha Bolsheviks did in the 1917. civil war. Compromise is only a last resort. The Soviets have showed little evidence of it since Ihe war ended. They have used Ihe veto and the 4,'alkoul in Ihe UN lo turn even a stalemate to tr";ir advantage. The deadlocked conferences of the foreign ministers have given Russia more time to recover and rebuild. It is unfortunate that we must be a parl of Ihis diplomatic war of -it- trition. II is also dangerous. But since we are in it, we may take comfort in the fact that Mr. Marshall i.s on the iob. Pursuing military taclics of negotiation, the Russians are up against' a man who is no mean tactician himself. When Mr. Stalin speaks of exhau- €iled people recognizing the need for compromise, ho may be assuming that America is approaching lhal frame of mind. Our lack or an "ideology" imnoscd bv govern- menl and enforced by secret polici must seem to him a fatal weakness. But lie underestimates us. Wh"ii agreement docs come it must be because 1 the Soviets a>'p willing to give in and be reasonable. Until then, it behooves this country to keep up its moral, physical, ' and military strength.

Committee members, it was learned, are prepared to back continued efforts by Secretary of State George C.

B^JAMES MARLOW Washington, May 13 .->-(#>)—Don't exaggerate the importance of the supreme court decision on freight rates,; at least in the near future. It's a victory all right for the south and west over the north but here's the story, starting from scratch. Since thousands upon thousands of items are shipped by rail, the cost, or freight-rate, set-up is vastly complex. .In.fact, it's a hodge-podge, with Ihe rates varying by the size, weight, and destination of an item, and so on. Regulating Ifreightrates is one of the jobs of the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC). It steps in to regulate, or is called in. The ICC, created in 1887 by Congress, has been trying for years to put some uniformity into freight rates. But for years the north, through Soviet Proposal Beaten Despite Walkout Threat Lake Success, N. Y., May 13— (/P)*- Despite .a threatened Arab walkout, the political committee of the United Naipns assembly today defeated a Soviet move to have a U. N. Palestine inquiry commission draft proposals for immediate independence of the Holy Land. The vote was 2G against the Russian measure, 15 in favor, with 12 nbstentions and two absences. This meant that the inquiry commission would be given a free land to consider all possible solu- ipns of the Palestine problem v'ithout- any special reference to he independence question. The vote came after Faris El <houry, Syrian Delegate, said outside the chamber that the Arab delegations were considering the possibility of walking out of the special assembly in protest against a majority stand on the Palestine question. El Khoury specified .that this eventuality was in the process of formulation and that the five Arab countries had not yet made their linal decision. ' ' He said he Arabs were insisting on two points: 1. At least a mention of the word "independence" in the instructions to be given the inquiry commission. ' 2. Reference to the United Nations charter in those instructions. He said the only link binding the Arab states here to the other states, such as Guacmala or Iceland, was the United Nations charter. El Khoury said the political committee so far had refused Arab requests that the instructions mention the U. N. charter and that the Arabs felt this essential. The Syrian delegate appeared i pessimistic as to the outcome of' the fight the Arabs have made to get some references to independence in the political committee's instructions. ' •; Asked directly if the Arab states would walk out 'on the special Palestine session in the event the assembly finally decided against them, he said that was a distinct possibility. : o 723 Veterans Aided by Local Office The Veterans Administration office at the Hempstead County courthouse in Hope, Arkansas provided information and assistance to 723 veterans and members of their families during April, it was reported today by Thomas Booker of the VA office.

Here Is a-Sample of How Times Change-Even the Campus Slang Is Different By HAL BOYLE Columbia, Mo., May 13 —(/P) — Here is a sample of modern co-ed campus slang at the University of Missouri: "I'm bushed One of the yo-yo boys silling nexl to me in a basket course tried to pass me his growl in a Whizz quiz.

In general, denial troubles ar.s considered service-connected if the veteran applies for treat ment within a year afler leaving the service.

In ordinary cases no physical examination will be required; the veteran merely certifies that his health is as good as it was when the policy lapsed. Veterans planning to reinstate their policies may do so at the VA office. o None Injured in Highway 67 Accident A Strickland Transportation Truck of Dallas, driven by 'J. H.

May 13 — (If)— Federal conciliators striving for a settlement of the 37-day-old' Southwestern Bell telephone srike scheduled a tentative joint negotiations session for late today after the union rejeced a new wage proposal Which the company declared was its final offer.

Under the offer top wage rates for all telephone jobs would have been increased $4 per.-week.; Starting rates would be increased $3 per wee.k except in smaller communities where the increase would be $2. Time of the next negotiations session remained uncertain as the the company's full proposal in an union negotiators met to review the company's full proposal in an effort to determine which points w'erc acceptable. McCowen said he doubted whether the union would make a new proposal after its deliberations today. He said there might be some modifications in its demand for (own rpclassfications, but empha- 'sized tihere \Mould not be any ciiungo in the over-all demand for at least v ti a week. "We are not going to settle unti they grant the same cost of living increase made in other industries," he said. His reference was to tho over-all average increase of rents an hour recently negotiated ,n the automobile, steel and elec- .rical equipment industries. Federal Conciliaor A. E. Johnson sad he was standing by to call a new' meeting of the company and union committees as soon as the union was ready. The union said it expected to be ready for another joint session late today.
