STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Lettermenio Bolster.Teams in Southwest By HAROLD V. RATLIFF Dallas, Tex.. July 5 — (fl>— Two hundred and twenty-six: lettermen —more than half of them pre-war variety — will be on the seven Southwest Conference football squads next fall. It's the biggest year of them all on veteran material. All the schools bulge with it. There is so much the conference members will have B teams so all the fellows will get to play. Two All-Americans — H. J Nichols, Rice guard of 1944, and Hubert Bechtol, Texas end of 1944 and 1945 — are included in the highly- experienced rosters. Texas and Texas A. and M. each will have 42 lettprmen with ex- servicemen greatly in the major- But the fact that the Longhorns INSURANCE at A Saving The prudent man carries insurance.

Rice is regarded as a title contender in every respect and Baylor is called the finest looking squad in the conference. Top names of the pre-war and early war years are due to include: Kit Kittrell and Wenzell Candy, Baylor; Sid Halliday, E. L. Keeton and Jim Sid Wright, Southern Methodist; Chuck Lively and Paul Paladino of Arkansas; Spot Collins, Don Fambrough and Audrey Gill, Texas; Jim Lucas and John Bond, Texas Christian; Leo Danrels, Barney Welch and Willie Zapalac of Texas A. and M.: Weldon Humble, Windell Williams ,Ted Scruggs and Charles Malmberg of Rice. More recent stars returning are Jack Price, Bull Johnson and Sammie Pierce, Baylor; Paul Page and Eugene Wilson, Southern Methodist; John Hoffman, Henry Ford and Earl Wheeler of Arkansas: Dick Harris, Bobby Layne and Harlan Wetz, Texas ;Leon Joslin and Henry Rose, Texas Christian; Leonard Dickey, Monte Moncrief, Preston Smith and Rob Goodc, Texas A. and M.; H. L. Nicholson and Huey Keeney, Rice. Coaches are predicting the best brand of football in years, possibly in history. They even think the conference may produce the nation's No. 1 team — something this section hasn't been able to do since 1939. when Texas A. and M. held that spot. Fall practice starts Sept. 1 and by that time a number ot additional stars of other years are due to be on the squads. For instance, Texas looks for ,Ray Borneman, one of the highest-rated freshmen it ever had, to be on hand. He has just been released from the navy. Texas Christian expects Pete Stout, freshman star of 1942; A. and M. is looking iot Gus White, :.resh- man sensation who was a standout in service football, and Marion Flanagan, top man of 1944, and so on.

Zanuck, opens Sunday at the Rialto Theater. The gripping romantic drama is set against the background of the turbulent anti-rent rebellion period of the early 19th Century. It enfolds the story of a secret love that brought with is a world of rapture and terror in one of the most unusual and shock-charged plots ever to reach the screen. Gene Tierney's appearance in the challenging 'TDragomvyck" role of Miranda comes fresh on the heels of her sensational performance in "Leave Her To Heaven " Never the one to reject a part considered by others as too unsympathetic or "different," the exotic star's outstanding work in "Laura " "A Bell for Adano" and "Leave Her To Heaven," made her the obvious choice for the prize "Dra- gonwyck" role. It is ona of the most coveted roles of the yeur. and one complelely different from any Miss _Tierncy has essayed in the past. Preview critics are'unani- mous in their belief that hor current portrayal. marks Gens Tierney's greatest triumph, and a new high standard in dramatic acting In the rols of Gene's stern and stubborn, Bible-quoting fathar, vel- eran characler actor Walter ' Huston finds a part tailor-made to his exceptional acting ability. His outstanding performance is said to b- 1 one of Ihe most memorable in his long and impressive record of successes. Teamed with Miss T.-crnoy is six- foot-four star of stage and serf-en Vincent Price, as the aristocratic egomaniac. Nicholas Van Ryn whose psychopathic obsession shrouds Dragonwyck in . mystery and terror, and precipitates the dramatic situation that brings tho film to is unusual -and thrilling climax.' The choice of Glenn Langan to play the important part of Dr. Jeff Turner marks the recognition of what critics consider to be one of Hollywood's most promising screen personalities.

He was one of the first to advocate a consolidation of laws and agencies dealing with war veterans and make adequate provisions for the rehabilitation of returning servicemen and women. He helped put over the famous G. I. Bill of Rights and worked equally as hard to amend it to eliminate the bad features as they were discovered, He served on a special investigating committee to investigate the situation in Arkansas and the law was amended soon after his return to Washington, giving veterans a better chance to buy what they.needed for themselves. He was one of the first to sign the petition calling the Terminal Leave Pay bill out of the committee for a vote. Passage of the measure now seems a certainty. He has worked hard on the Wyatt Housing Bill which will provide housing for veterans, but has continually fought against subsidies which he felt were against the best interest of the veterans. He was one of the first to advocate a law which would permit servicemen and women to vote.

Washburn——Railroads Match Airlines With No-Transfer Travel * In an advertisement yesterday Missouri Pacific Lines announced */ the local traveler thai he can gel aboard a pullman or day coach in Hope and proceed withoul changing trains dirccl lo New York or Washington. This is a "first" in local railroad history. Heretofore it was necessary to change trains at St. Louis, with a varying delay. Down through the years of railroading custom divided Iho country into two parts, with the Mississippi river the dividing line. On extreme « • Northern routes the Eastern lines ndcd al Chicago, whore Western roads loaded up for Iho journey to California. In our section the transfer point was St. Louis. But no more of that. Air transportation wilh its direct passage from coast to coast has brought a competitive program in behalf of the railroads. In the. Norlh pullmans and day coaches now go from Now York lo California. And in Ihis section Ihc Missouri Pacific connects withoul change points as r dislanit as San Antonio and New ^ It should have been done years ago. Nothing is more tedious than a layover in a strange railroad terminal. And the realization of it has helped the railroads to meet idr competition in the postwar sti ugglc for passenger transport business. -K * * By JAMES THRASHER World Psychosis Dr.. Karl Bowman o[ the University of California thinks thai the world ot men and of nations •jis menially ill, and that psychiatry .would help it. .And anyone who knows the meaning of the word psychiatry, and who has looked seriously al the suspicion, suffering, selfishness and indifference which hank like a cloud ovor that world, must sometimes suspect lhat the diagnosis and prescription are not greatly oxaggcraled. The world's people, says Dr. Bowman, "have lo a considerable degree a cultural schizophrenia which tries lo avoid the unpleasant problems of the world by denying their •^existence." (Schizophrenia, Ihc dic- lionary slales, is a type of psychosis characterized by loss of contact with environment and by disinte- gralion of personality.) In support 'of his contention Dr Bowman says lhal "Ihcrc is a very considerable percentage of individuals who insist lhat it is childish to be concerned" aboul Ihe atomic, bomb and its threat of world annihilation. This statement was made before the atomic bomb tesl of June 30. Bul what,we heard and read afler- •iward sof'Tjjfcj to bear it out. Still, we c"ame across few poo- pic, who didn't seem disappointed in the firsl-lest. Radio reception wasn't good. But, moreover, Ihe bomb didn'l make a big boom. That seemed more important than the known fact thai Ihc guinea pig flcel had been considerably damaged, and lhal similar bombs — though perhaps of greater effectiveness —had blown the greater part of two cilies and their inhabitants to kingdom come. Our impression was that people /weren't relieved that the damage had been no-worse. They were disappointed Jhat a man-made holocaust of unprecedented horror didn't develop, wilh mighty warships vanishing inlo thin air, islands disappearing, and the unveiling of some fantastic new technique of obliterating life. It seems generally accepted thai Die four atomic explosions to dale arc only a primitive employment of a force whose potential is infinitely greater. Yet Ihc general . /caction might bo summed up with: \J"Aw, il wasn't so much." Maybe that's "cultural schioph- rcnia." But maybe it's not so much a manifestation of the impulse lo run away from reality as a manifestation of the vicarious blood- Ihirslincss lhal loads Iho public to bullfights, lo boxing bouts in Iho hope of a knockout, and lo automobile races In the expectation thai someone may be killed. Anway, il isn't comforting. It suggests that we Americans,.in the mass, were hungry for another hor- J i'or after the horror of war, And there we arc, again in the mass, more concerned over food shortages and a possible depression than we were over possible defeat by the Axis or are now over possible loss of Ihc victory. All this suggests that there may be something to the idea of a world psychosis. It suggests that a few good psychiatric treatments might benefit most of the world's people and improve Ihe complexion of our troubled limes. * Hogs Flood Stock Markets Resulting in Price D\op Chicago, July 5 — (UP) — Hog prices dropped loday as farmers poured heavy Friday livestock shipments into most midwcslcrn stockyards.

Twleve veterans, bearing signs which proclaimed, "OPA goes down; O'Daniel goes up," picketed the building for nearly an hour. Other veterans later joined the demonstration. Young O'Daniel was not in sight during iho picketing. No one answered his telephone or doorbell. . One of the veterans participating in the picketing said his rent had been doubled since the expiration of price control and said "Brient's fight is our fight and Iho fight of all veterans."

He carried a sign reading, -"AVC fights for veterans' rights." Trumans Visit ivil War Battleground By MERRIMAN SMITH ' Ihurmont, Md., July (i — (UP) —President and Mrs. Truman today make a pilgrimage to ihe Civil War battlefields of Gettysburg, Pa Breaking his vacation routine the president was scheduled to drive Irom his mountain resort here to the battlefield 18 miles away. Members of his staff said it was Mr. Irtiman's first-visit to the historic site. He sent word to reporters covering Jiis brief vacation by remote control that he would be glad to give them a full lecture on Pickctt's famous charge at Gettysburg. The president and his wife will remain al Shangri-La through tomorrow. . Their routine has been strictly on Iho lay side since the allernoon of July .t wnen ihey motored from Washington. Yesterday tney went for a long auto ride in the morninsr. Mr. Truman walked in llu; mountains a good part of the allernoon. And last nignt Ihey laughed ut the movie antics of mo Marx brothers in "A Night in Casablanca." However, a president of the Unil- ed States can never get completely away irom his wont. Yesterday Mr. Truman signed legislation ap- propnating $437,703,212 lo operate Ihe State, Justice .and Commerce iJi'parlmcnt.s and federal judiciary during the 1947 iiscal year. The measure provides $19,2H4,7K8 lor the eiriballlcd oliito uepart- mcnt international information service and cultural relations program, and $3,U59,BOG tor its intelligence service.

Record shipments of livestock poured into midwcsl markets for-' c i n g some on-thc-hoof - prices downward from Tuesday's all time high, but prices to the-consumer cgecl higher. First announcement ot boosts in meat prices lo retailers came 1 from the Kingan and iSlark-Welzel companies, two o f Indiana's largest packers. Both companies announced five t o 15 ccnt-pcr- pound increase in beef and pork. Indianapolis spokesman for Armour and Swill, bolh members of Ihe industry's "Big Four," said Ihey conlemplaled similar price bo.osls lo make up for government subsidies which went out with the OPA. Packinghouse spokesmen pre-~ dieted thai fresh pork soon would be available to every retail bulch-i er in the midwest as a result of a shipment of 30,000 hogs at Chicago yesterday. II was the largest for any day since last winter and the biggest for any July day in three years. Live hogs yesterday brought a : top ot $16.50, $1.50 below Wenes- day's hijjh, but still above the old OPA coiling. In other commod-- itics, consumer prices edged: steadily upward, reflecting the; generally higher average of while- sale prices. Wholesale prices f o r poultry, eggs, butter and lard continued to climb. At Chicago, roasters, fryers and. broilers sold for 40 to 42 cents a pound wholesale, compared lo 31.9 and 33.4 cenls under the OPA. Cattle receipts also increased yesterday to 9,700 head -at the union stockyards in Chicago, largest for-a Friday since December, 1943. " Many cities and some slales tok elforts to. control rents, but reported rent ' increases. ; The tenants league of America reported that many landlords \"ere resorting to "lockouts" againsl I heir -.tenants instead of oblaining legal .evictions through the courts, Onoj tenant said h e had been stoned by a landlady after inquiring 'aboul a 75 per cent increase. At Louisville, Ky., ihe Jefferson county citizens political action strike to combat rising rents arid retail prices..' They planned picket landlords or business tablishmenls which raised prices. Members of the CIO Auto Workers Unioiv at Indianapolis scheduled-a mass demonstration to protest the death of price controls. Representatives of the packing industry said the Fourth of July holiday, when the yards were closed, was responsible to some extent for yesterday's record livestock receipts. However, most stockyard officials felt the rush to market reflected the reaction of farmers to the possibility .that OPA ceilings might be restored. At Washington, p. C., Secretary of Agricullure Clinton P. Anderson said he would ask congress tor funds to make retroactive subsidy payments to dairy producers' who held the price lino until congress decided the : «falc of OPA. He asked milk producer, handlers and processors to .relain prices at former OPA ceilings. Despite widespread reports of food increases, surveys showed that textiles, such as clothing and dry goods, generally were being held at old price levels. Retail prices were cxpccled to lag behind wholesale boosts for approximately 30 days. i abai Hjbest Decatur, 111., July 6 — (/I 3 )—Elmer Keck, ;i mechanic for a bakery, wasn'l slumped when he was unable to obtain parts for one of the company's big dough mixers.

S, A, Ass( ":iatod Press —Moons NcwsDQcor Enterorhe Ass'n. PRICE 5c COPY By J. M. ROBERTS, JR. AP Foreign Affairs Analyst (Substituting for MacKenkle) Despite Mr. Molotov's backdown last night on plans for the 21-na- lion peace conference, recent developments as a whole seem to bear out the word that is going around that Russia is definitely ® working loward an accord the United States. with . This is particularly bolstered by a new report that the Kremlin may not press, at least for the time being, its ancient ambitions .regarding the Dardanelles. /is the story reaches me — and Hie source is usually a good one — British and American diplomats were not surprised when Molotov suddenly agreed at Paris to give the Dodecanese islands to Greece, in spite of previous indications lhat the Russians would demand bases there. The story is that, prior to the conference Ihc Russians asked Ihe British to indicate to Turkey that now would be a good time to renegotiate the Russo-Turkish treaty of friendship which Moscow had been saying must be revised. The Turkish rcaclion is reported to have been "if they want 10 talk about, taking or using an inch of Turkish ground for any purpose, Ihere is no usp lalking al all." Then Russia is said to have add: ed, in effecl: "Tell them to make ia move anyway. Maybe things aren't as bad as they think." Thus indicating that there might be no insistence on the cession of Dar- anelles bases and some territory in northeastern Turkey previously mentioned in Russian statements. The Dodecanese and Italian colonies over which she also stopped contending would, of course, mean nothing to Russia if her Dardanelles program is to be shelved. There arc other things tying in with the report published in this column last week thai Stalin feels Russia needs little more, internationally speaking, for her immediate security, and thai an accord wilh America has become a priority policy. What the hitch may bo over the peace conference is not quite clear — apparently something came up to make the Russians wish they had not moved quite so fast. Aside from Ihis, eycrylhing in Ihe past fortnight fits into the picture drawn by the news reports — the Italian treaty, the original agreement on the peace conference, the general atmosphere in Paris, Gromyko's compromise on procedure in the atomic control discussions, and the reassurance of the new Russian ambassador at . Washington that "Russia will never start a war against the Uniled Slales or anyone else" Probably one of the most pertinent comments of all was that by Yugoslavia's deputy premier, Edward Kardelj, afler Molotov's acceptance of the Trieste compromise Kardelj said it was unacceptable to his country, but lhat the Soviets had done everything in their power lo aid Yugoslavia and Mr Mololov "apparently didn'l wanl lo deadlock the conference by opposing the French proposal" If he does not spoil the record now regarding Ihe peace conference, the situation should be much easier Laney Makes First Formal Election Bid Rogers, July 6 —I/PI— Governor Ben Laney made his first formal bid for re-election in a state-wide radio address last night, citing his record of "efficient and economical" administration and dedicating the next two years to eight major projects Laney's admittedly political speech was the climax of a program dedicating the new million- dollar munsingwear ho'siery plant at Rogers .The governor reported thai Ihe slate's financial condition is the • in its.history, that debts are Delng paid in advance and that the stale enjoys Ihe best credit since it was admitted into the union Following a resume of govern- menlal changes since his inauguration in January, 1945, Laney set fourth tne eight-point program and promised to improve highways under a county system not based on votes The projects as he named them were: (!)

Senators generally forecast a bitter, "no-holds-barred" batllp over Ihe food decontrol plan offered by Sen. Kenneth Wherry, II., Web., and already assured support of many Republicans and several Democrats. Anli-OPA foes were loading Iheir weapons to force action on Wner- ry's decontrol plan as the Senate enjoyed a weekend recess. The fight lo renew price controls is scheduled to be the first order of business Monday. Another obstacle lo early Senale approval of Ihe OPA bill cen- lered on Sen. Robert A. Taft's plan to give producers their pre-war prices plus increased costs. Taft late yesterday reintroduced his pricing amendment, singled out by President Truman in his veto message on the first congressional price bill as one of the measure's most objectionable features. Taft made only one change in his amendment. It was the pricing base period as July 1-15, 1U40 instead 01 Oct. 1-15, I9<il. Senate Democratic Leader Alben W. Barkley was confident that the Senate would complete action on the measure next week. He said the bill would not be passed, however .without "repetilion" of the fight on the original OPA legislation. : ' Tafl, leader of the --coalition .,,...,. tipns on the outcome/'But, he said", "it looks to mt like a big row." Wherry's move to remove controls from food products immediately gained significant support from the Democratic side of the Senate chamber. Sen. Walter F, George, D., Ga., told reporters he would support the amendment "because it would be better to decontrol and get rid of the black markets" and open up legitimate merchandising channels. "Regarless of what happens, however," George said, "the mal- adjuslmonls of OI^A have guaranteed a meal shortage by spring of next year and nothing can be done now which would alleviate lhat condition." UN Hopes to Soon Agree on Atom Issues By CHARLES A GRUMICH New York, July 6 — (/Pj— The United Nations atomic conferees hopes lo complete the first phase of their deliberations by next week end bul il was apparent today that world atomic control could be established only after long, painstaking preliminaries One atithorilalivc source said lhal "only a very optimistic view" would support the idea that any concrete atomic program may be ready for submission to the Security Council in lime for action al Ihe monlh-or longer meeting of ihe general assembly scheduled to begin here' Sept 3 The United States delegation .said thai even after the adoption of atomic controls "the process of pulling them into effect will necessarily extend over a considerable period of time" "It will have lo he done by stages xxx and according to prearranged schedules based on sound and logical sequence leading to full and effective establishment of all controls," a memorandum from the Americans said However, the preliminary work cleared away thus far under the fast-paced leadership of Australian roreign Minister Herbert V Evall has resulted in a nearly complele oullinc charting a course through the areas of mutual dissent in the separate United Slales and Russian plans for atomic control Evatl himself, aflcr a strenuous two months as leader of the Australian delegation lo Ihc Security Council and atomic groups, begins on Monday his last week as chairman of the 12-nalion atomic energy commission, ils full membership working committee and its six- member subcommittee No 1 Under the monthly rotation system, tne gavel passes to the nominee of the Brazilian delegation alter July 14 In one of his last acts a^ chairman of all the atomic groups, Jwalt kept Hie United Stales delegation working .through the July 4 holiday on u detailed elaboration of the American plan calling for a world monopoly over the sources and disposal of atomic energy This would provide for an all- nalions control of the rare uranium-bearing minerals and thorium deposits over the world and "com- jjlete and absolute ownershio of all uranium and thorium actually produced." Threatened by Russian Demand By JOSEPH W. GRIGG Pairs, July G — (UP) — A Russian demand that Ihe European peace conference be chopped up inlo five parls for separate discussions of Axis satcllil c treaties threatened today to wreck the plans for the 21-n.ation meeting before they even shape up. Quarters close to the Big Four council of minislers said a Soviet proposal, put forth by V. M. Molo- lov in an about-face from his amiable agreement to a July 29 conference dale, would split the delegates into confused, impotent factions. ' By blocking invitations to ' the conference until the rules of procedure were fixed, Molotov plunged the foreign ministers back into a morass of dispute from which they appeared lo have emerged 24 hours > earlier. . •..'•• The ministers will try again late today to untangle the snarl into which they were thrown by Molotov's demand that separate groups consider the various treaties for Italy, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, and Finland. The Soviet proposal on procedure provided that all 21 nations meet only as coordinating body. Twenty would be given a'voice on' the Italian treaty, 12 on the Romanian, 12 on the Hungarian, 14 on the Bulgarian and nine on the Finnish. The exact lists of nations in each group were unavailable. But informed quarters presumed the groupings would be on uie oasis UL nations definitely a t war with each of Germany's satellites in question. Such a scheme would leave China out of discussion of the Italian treaty. Molotov sought to strike China from the list of inviting powers, at the same time announcing that the rules of procedure must be decided before he could agree to the issuance .of invitations. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes and Ernest Bevin in effect accused Molotov of "throwing the peace conference out the window." Molotov countered with a. suggestion lhat the entire matter be skipped ^or.the time Tseing and the ministers 'proceed' to a discussion of Germany. .

A rharTwho safthrouglt^eTQtHS session of three arid a half hours' last night., said it was "words and, nothing but 1 words.",' : ! . If Molotov had decided to hold up the peace conference, observers agree, his insistence on bringing up the subject of Germany before invitations were issued might mean that once the Big Four embarked on the Reich's future he could refuse lo return to the subject ot. the conference,^, Byrnes, Bevin and Georges Bidault of France opposed Molotov in the wordy session. Byrnes said iiu wuiila ue \viuiug'to discuss rules of procedure provided the invitations were issued, but would :iot be a party to laying down ironclad rules for the other 17 nations before they had even got together. o Polish Riots May Bring Jewish Exodus By CHARLES P .ARNOT Kielcc, Poland, July 5—(UP) — The Kielce anli-semitic riot in which 40 persons died was expected tonight to touch off a new exodus of Jews from Poland to the Germany. Correspondents touring the riot- torn Jewish colony found one compelling thought among the survivors. It was expressed by Anna Barenholc, 35, who muttered through swollen lips: "We just want lo get out of Poland and stay out." Those of the correspondents recently in Germany were familiar with the stories told by Jewish travelers from Poland regarding anti-scmitic oppression prompting a large scale liighl. American military authorities have taken cognizance of Ihc situation and indicated they would receive as many Jews from Poland as might seek; admission lo their occupation zone. ' Officials also voiced fears that the bloodshed in Kielcc might ?nn'nnn 0t , her alroci lics against iho 100,000 Jews still in Poland. Gen Stanislaw Sleds, arriving by plane from Warsaw for a security ministry investigation, said ihe riot was a well organized atrocity "by a group irom abroad which carried out a program here before" He said the man who provoked the uprising had been identified as a I moMbcr of the army of Gen Wla- jdislnw Anders .who commanded i the Polish Second Corps in Italy I Sixty-two persons had been ar- i rested at Kielcc, and more arrests i were expected Trials were expected to begin within a ::cw days I Corrspondems who came to Kielcc stumbled into evidence of still another outburst of violence in troubled Poland.
