At the same time a high Jewish source in Tel Aviv announced ihat meetings had been called throughout Palestine to consider a rot.ilia- tory "passive resistance" movement similar to those undertaken by Nationalists in India. Passive resistance would include non-payment of taxes, a strike by all Jews in government service and "complete non-cooperation with the British" in other ways, this source declared. Jewish labor leaders in Palestine simultaneously cabled various labor organizations and parties throughout the world protesting the "atitude" of the British government toward Palestine. British authorities said that the operations which they began Saturday "to restore law and order in Palestine" were virtually com pletcd but that searches ::or hidden arms and explosives still were under way in a number of places.

GRIGG Paris, July 1 (UPi— The Big I'/Jtir foreign ministers tackled the iriestc issue with renewed vigor today alter V. M. Molotov indicate " -a willingness to discuss it ft 1 , M ; f sis of n Fl- cnch proposal that the key port be administered by the four powers for 10 years Molotov and Georges Bidault'of 1- ranee talked over thc dinner able last night. They doubtless rehashed their views on Trieste thc conference's stumbling block that n-V' has P'' ovt -' cl insurmonlable Ijidault proposed that Trieste and the neighboring area be made autonomous for a decade, to bo administered by the four powers with Yugoslav and Italian reprc scntation included and its integril guaranteed by the United Nation Security Council. Molotov said that subject to certain amendments he was willim to take the French proposal as th basis for further discussion He suggested, however, that Czechos lovakia be admitted to tho .-liscus slon . a ? a party particularly inter ested in Trieste. Ernest Bcvin was understood to '.v? . bco " ln touch with Prime Minister Clement Attlee during the week-end regarding thc Frcncl orooosal. The United States and British delegations made it plain they were something loss than cnthusi- Tstic about Bidault's proposal But some inclination w a s evident among the delegations to try to ^ lmnie ?" /? ut a co "iPrnmisc on the basis of the new proposal. If such ,T compromise could be •cached, it would clear the way or a 21-nation peace conference lot later than July 25. In v io w of he stubbornness of the whole P ro , ble .m and the bald protests by both Italy and Yugoslavia last veek against the outright award :>! the port to cither country, some uch compromise may prove to ie the only way out. .Some q u a r t e r s believed this would prove to be tho crucial week ot lhe conlerence. It opened with an agenda comprising Trieste Italian colonies, a peace conference date, and Germany. The colonial issue was represented by a clashing of views between Molotov and Bcvin on administration of tho colonies in the year to elapse before a final decision on their, fate is made. Molotov objects to Britain maintaining the administration during the Considerable confidence was apparent in conference quarters thai the ministers would succcecd in fixing a date for an early peace conference. Molotov had agreed that he probably could consider soiling a date "within two or three days." Close followers of the conference behoved that when tho subject comes up again—and Secretary of State James F. Byrnes intended to plug away at it—Molotov might agree to call a conference but possibly try to set a date somewhat later than the July '20 dale Byrnes suggested.

Washburn America Can Boat the Inflation Bogey If il weren't for the fear of -prohibitive, food prices— men must uil lo live— ; lhc people would probably have forced thc end of OPA before now. The federal program certainly has held down thc rise in food F ,?, b ,cttcr than government did n World Wnr I. But aside from lood, and housing, in thc big cities where controls actually were £nA • \ ccl - thc Performance of OPA is hardly inspiring. Government has failed, indisputably, in persuading labor and mnn- d'T'V"^'"' to go back to work for VAvilian production in peace. Labor Uemands still higher wages, but wants OPA retained so nobody but special groups of labor will gel tho -benefit of thai increase. Management, reported to be losing money on peacetime production — caught between higher labor costs and OPA-fixcd selling prices — doesn't care whether school keeps or not. This was thc picture last weekend as OPA kicked the bucket Maybe it is a terrible disaster — OPA's passing. But I wonder if il -s any worse than the prospect we faced of having lo do business perpetually under the heel of a million payrolled fcdcralltes. Right at this moment we can't be sure, because lhe fedoralites have most of the propaganda outlets— arc using all of them. and . But one thing is certain: Events have precipitated the OPA crisis now, instead of indefinitely waiting. And this may be for the best. The country needs courage and determination to meet this crisis. •Nor are we completely without ' remedies to meet the situation. Establishments long in business and which expect to stay in business with the public's good will may be depended on to hold any price changes to the barest minimum. Over all of us hangs the spectre of high income taxes which prevent the avaricious from holding on to excess profits anyway. Ownership of private housing is in the hands of a relatively few, and this is one of the toughest of ...all problems in the present cmer- • gency. Most landlords will be reasonable. And for those who prove unreasonable there is the possibility of action by the county tax asses- .sors everywhere. Higher rents mean a higher valuation on the property. The rent situation should be surveyed, and tax assessments increased promptly on individual owners as fast as rent increases come to light. Tenants should report directly to the courthouse. •K * * fl By JAMES THRASHER Atomic, Roast Pig 'The proscv.lpe of livestock aboard the target ships in the Bikini atom- bomb test suggests that mankind may have come a full circle since the legendary millstone of history described by Charles Lamb in his '..."Dissertation on Roast Pig." Lamb's story has been required reading for students for so long that it probably is unnecessary to recall more than 'the title. But just in case some reader had the mumps at the time the English literature tplass was studying the story, a brief refresher may be permissible, along with apologies for errors due to rusty memory. In a far-off time in China, according to Lamb, the people kept the pig in the parlor (a practice later to be mistakenly credited to the Irish). One day a house caught fire and everything, including the pig, was destroyed. A son of the family took hold of the ch'arred carcass, burned his fingers, popped them into his mouth to cool them, and was rewarded by a new and Exceedingly pleasant taste. As we remember it, the news of his discovery got around. There ensued quite a vogue for setting fire to the family dwelling in order to enjoy the new delicacy. It was quite a time before some inventive fellow discovered that it was possible to prepare roast pig without the drastic necessity oneself out of house of burning and home. Someday we shall probably be serving alomically roasted pig for ^ Sunday dinner — if all goes well. "We have been assured that it is at least theoretically possible for the cleaving atom to cook our meals and wash the dishes, besides providing energy for a multitude of of other tasks. But we arc going about the task of accomplishing all this much in the manner of Lamb's^ ancient Chinese. A little less than a year ago we destroyed a good many houses and, presumably, a good many pigs by atomic fission in two Japanese cities. Now we have tried out an Atomic bomb on several million "rlollars 1 worth of warships in order to find out, among other things, just how successful atomic energy is at roasting pigs. That admittedly wasn't the primary consideration of the test. But one might make out a pretty valid case in support of the contention that it should have been. For surely no one in his right mind wants to use the harnessed atom for anything but peaceful and helpful tasks. , We may chickle at Lamb's Hharp satire without believing that the stupid bungling of his primitive Chinese really had much connection with enlightened modern man. But see what enlightened modern man is up to right now. Representatives of his leading enlightened governments arc desperately trying to 47TH YEAR: VOL. 47—NO. 222 WEATHER FORECAST Arkansas: Partly cloudy (his aft- ernon, tonight and Wednesday. devise system to keep themselves and each other from using a wonderful, appalling new discovery in a way that no one wants it used.
