July 3-10 HEAR PAUL GEREN FOR CONGRESS SPEAK IN HOPE THURSDAY NIGHT 8 o'clock CITY HALL Truman Offers Compromise on Furlough Pay Washington, July 9 — (/P) —The White House said today President Truman has proposed a compromise plan to use government bonds, as well as cash, in paying approxi mately 14,000,000 war veterans for accumulated furlough time. The" plan, Press, Secretary Eben Ayers told a new's conference, is the president's own idea. Under it, veterans who served in the ranks would get cash for all terminal leave payments less than $50 and five-year bonds in $25 denominations for larger amounts. Estimates of the cost ranged from $2,750,000,000 to $3,000,000.000. The latter figure was mentioned by Senator Edwin C. Johnson (D-Colo) who first disclosed the plan to reporters. Johnson said it was advanced by the budget bureau, which sneaks for the president. narrowing down the search to a few automobiles. I Haven't heard how hot the campaign really is, but Columbia county had all the makings for a real race for county treasurer. Accord- Ing to lists compiled by Secretary of State C. G. Hall, the county has eight candidates for the office — more than any other race in the state.

Pd. by Paul Geren Madison county, according to Hall's list, is the only county in the state which will have to depend upon state constilutional races for political activily. All other offices, bolh counly and district, are uncontested with only one candidate filing. The county is in the third con- ;resional dislrict where J. W. Mmble of Berryville is seeking re-election unopposed. It is in the fourth judicial circuit where Maupin Cummings of Fayetteville is running for circuit judge and Ted Coxey of Berryville walks into the prosecuting atlor- ney's office without opposition. Jeff Duty of Rogers recenlly withdrew from the circuit judge's race to :make this clean sweep possible. And the county is in the second senatorial districl where John W. Cloer of Springdale is assured a seat in the state Senate. These county candidates are running unopposed: Arvil Fabbus of Huntsville, county judge; Sheridan Crowder of Japton. county clerk; Everetl Hill of Drake's Creek for circuil clerk; Berry Denny of Hunlsville for Sheriff and Colleclor; Fred Berry of Huntsville for treasurer; Aaron Tasey of Aurora for Assesor; and Rolla Fitch of Huntsville for slate Represenlative. Arkansas' Negroes do not feel that the Arkansas Supreme Court's recent action in holding the slale's separale federal primary law con- slitulional will affect Ihem. Dr. J. M. Robinson of Little Rock, president of the Arkansas Negro Democratic Asociation, points out that the law does not mention the Negrose and said his organization is going ahead with plans to vote in all four primary elections—stale and federal. Robinson says Negroes will poll from 10,000 to 15,000 votes in the state, and estimated there are 14,000 qualified . Negro voters in St. Francis, Jefferson, Pulaski and Garland counties alone. The organization has active chaplers in 18 counlies. Slate office holders who are candidates for re-election are lacing a rather new experience this year — almost a complete absence of job seekers and others looking for special favors. One office-holder seeking reelection complains thai he "hardly knows anyone in my own office." Instead of being forced to hire this friend's nephew or another's brother, he finds himself in the position of having to go to a business school to obtain help. Stale Complroller John Truemper's office reports thai lhe payroll as of July 1st did nol jump as il usually does in an eleclion year but held at about 5,100 persons. Slate officials explain this lack of interesl in jobs as due lo low salaries the stale can pay in comparison lo privale industry. Newspapers in U. S. Rapped by Catholic Boston, July 8—(UP)—The Pilot, official organ of the Catholic archdiocese of Boston, condemned American newspapers today for their handling of sex stories and suggested a crusade similar to the legion of decency unless they exercise voluntary restraint. "What journal published in the United States could still qualify as a 'family newspaper'?" the Pilot asked in an editorial based on the trial of Lt. Thainas Farrcll, 24, of Someyille who is accused by • branding his initials on the body of Helen Stavrou, 18, of Holyoke. "With every wish to praise empress where praise is possible," ihe Pilot said, "we must condemn —in the strongest language at our command —their reporting of the miserable, adistic episode which occured at a Boston hotel." The Pilot said a free press was a blessing, "but liberty imposes responsibilities." "We don't want any Tnore laws. If the pres of this country refuses voluntarily to accept restraints in the interests of public welfare...it may be necesary for the people to inaugurate a crusade kindred in spirit to the purpose an dcomposi- ion of the legion of decency. "Readers of American newspapers have far more power over the press than they dream—it may be lecesary to use that power." American Legion to Elect New Officers All American Legion members are requested to attend a meeting of the organization Thursday night at 7:30 o'clock at the AnWiuan ^egion hall. Officers for the new •ear will be elected and business of interest to all members will be discussed at this regular meeting.

In the biggest new hit revue on Broadway even the ladies of the ensemble are veteran USO-Cnmp performers. The show, of course, is "Call Me Mister," and right Irom its producers—Actor Melvyn Douglas and Broadway ^Lawyer Herman Levin—down to th"e smallest walk-on bit ,the lads of the cast wear the "Ruptured Duck" emblem. Author of one of the biggest nonmusical hits on the street is Garson Kanin, who wrote "Born Yesterday,' 'his first legitimate stage writing chore, which was a comedy click right off the bat. Arnold Horwitt, who co-wrote one of the funniest revue sketch- bs I've ever seen, the Air Corps skit in "Call Me Mister," and wno fashioned the lyrics t o Harry Revel's tunes in "Are You With It," another hit tune show, was released from the Army but a few days ago. While in service h e wrote, with GI Arnold Aucrbach a farcical tidbit called "Okay, U. S. A.," which served Mickey Rooney's touring GI show while that sawcd-off Barymore was in service. Jules Munshin, the major male comic discorcry of "Call Me Mister," will have little to worry about for the next seven years, for he was signed by Paramount to a contract for that length of time, effective the end of his current agreement with Douglas and Levin, which ends June, 1947 Three ex-QI's, Byron Griffith. Rusell Lord and Gilbert Karnig joined their producing talents and bought a play by Betty Laldlaw and the late Alan Dir.cshart, called "Invitation by Design," which will go into production in August. The whilom service boys have called their firm Drama Guild, Inc. William Calm, a sergeant until his release last year, has produced two shows to date, and has not been deterred in the least by the fact that both flopped. His next will be a comedy called "Toplitzky of Notre Dame," and then he will get at -another romp (about returned veterans at college, called "Snow Job," a bit of service patois which means a yellow who can talk his way in and out of almost any situation. Joe Pcvney, another erst-while GI, who drew raves early in vhe year with his acting in a dignified Second Death From Polio Wjthin Week at Jonesboro Jonesboro, July 9 —(/?)— Charles Glen .Tones, eight year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Gaylon Jones who lives two miles cast of here, died last night of infantile paralysis, the second Jonesboro child to succumb to the disease within u week.

Hobart same up wltu a handful ot tickets and a broken toe. Francis has always been touch and alert. He was under fire six months in France with the coast artillery during the old war and never got n scratch. During the last war he commanded 500 MPs among 8,000 in Manila when the Japs were chased out. F,verybody was in an uproar, catching Jap spies and soldiers. Allied troops tore into one another, and when Francis tried to break it up they ganged together on the American MPs. He restored order with only one MP shot to death. His wife says he is the easiest man in the world to please with "any kind of table vittles," and they always go on vacation to visit his 17 brothers and sisters in Iowa, "where he pitches horseshoes and whittles. The police arc separate from the White House secret service detail, but .on occasion picked crews shucked their harness and went along in civilian clothes when FDR motored to Hyde Park during the dangerous days just before and during the war. Francis was a private then, guarding the Pennsylvania avenue entrance to the Mansion. He spent stiff-backed and courteous hours telling women, mostly, that his hobby was tennis -and tnat he used to play first base on semi-pro base- Dall teams. Such questions, he says, were just bait to fish around for answers to some of the most hair- raising questions about the private lives of White House occupants.

Some dialing• ulshcd names come to mind. Andrew Carnegie of Scotland made a world-famous fortune in American steel. Carl Schurz came from Germany, settled in Missouri, and was a famous United States Senator. _ Mr. Hillman likewise was an ^/immigrant. Born in Lithuania, his interest in the American scene discarded the goal of wealth, and, until late in his career, the goal of politics. Mr. Hillman wns interested in sacial reform. And to that end lie became president of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers, was one of the founders of the CIO—and within recent years headed that, organization's Action Committee.

The Hobbs anti-racketeering law it will be recalled, was drafted primarily to meet -a local situation in New York City. The Justice De- parlmcnl in 1938"investigated"comi ) havin S Q. plaints that roving bands of union teamsters were halting out-of-state trucks in New York, giving the driver a choice of joining the local, paying a union member a day's wage, or taking a beating. The Supreme Court eventually ruled that these practices were union activity. Congressman Sam Hobbs of Alabama, sniffing at this morsel of justice handed down by the high tribunal, introduced a bill defining the New: York local's type of contract. The Kentucky congressman, who has denied that he profited in any way from his activities on behalf Ql Garsson, then was recorded as Hardy: jom:up-or-olsc routine as robbery and extortion. Now, after a long: 3 period of hibernating and being - kickod«-around; the bill, has. become law. " ' '-...-, Whereupon the New York local's counsel predicts that ^hc new law won t make any difference. Out- of-state truckers will still have >tp employ local drivers before they can make pickups or deliveries or have their goods handled by warehousemen, who arc members of affiliated unions. Why? Weil, says the attorney, that arrangement is part of most truck operators' contracts with the fr union. Also, he says, most employers in interstate truck operation welcome the arrangement because it allows their drivers to rest while the local drivers do the work (at exlrn pay). All of which is likely to be a little confusing to the lay minds of most of us. For instance, how sacred is a contract— sacred enough to make provisions binding even when they contravene a duly enacted law? How about the truck farmers of Now Jnrsoy. who grow so much p) of the food that New Yorkers eat? Are they going to insist upon the letter of their contract (if they have one) instead of being permitted to bring in their own truckloads of lettuce or tomatoes, get their money, do a little shopping and eo home— all without the paid assistance of Local 807, International Brotherhood of Teamsters? Arc these Jersey farmers going to insist upon being compelled to "rest," in their role of truck drivers, while paying a member of Local 807 a day's wages to do their k work? We doubt it. And we further suspect the union counsel of legal mumbo-jumbo when he says that "acts of coercion and violence have always been subject- to the exercise of local police power." Maybe the cops could have made an arrest. But what good would it have done when this business of "jumping on trucks," as the lawyer delicately puts it, was sanctioned until very recently by the highest court of the land, provided .. the jumpers were union members? W It remains to be seen now whether the Hobbs law will be applicable to practices which it defines as robbery and extortion and which it was written to curb, if those practices are already in force. Logically, one would say it should. But we're betting no money on it, as of now.

The seven pascngers on '-•' the naval plane, en route from'i the Pratt Whitney division of United Aircraft Corp., at Hartford, Conn., to Weslover Field, parachuted to earth as the craft, which carried one experimental engine installation, plunged into a tributary, of the the B-17, commandeered by army investigators apparently gave the first inkling that the ill-fated transport -plane was in distress when'it -crashed into Mt.

Buyer Strikes Have-Started in Some Cities By United ress "Buyers' strikes" to protest rising prices cropped up in several U. S. cities today. Consumer demonstrations were proposed or already under way in New York, Washington, Philadel- nhia, St. Louis, and Quincy, Mass. High-priced items were going pegging in some other communities, although there were no organized protests. But in many cities—among them Minneapolis, Omaha and Salt Lake City-^price increases were held to a minimum and retailers reported that business was normal. At Washington, D. C., the citizens price defense organization staged a one-day buyers' strike. Consumers were urged to stay away from the stores and to respect picket lines set up by the organization. An announcement from the citizens organization said "this is a protest to congress that the people want a good and workable price control act. Inflation must b e stopped. Among , the strike's were the, wives of Sen. Glenn Taylor, D. Ida.), Reps. Mike Mo'rirOney CD. Okla. and Amie; J. Forand D. R. I.) and Columnists Marquis Childs and Thomas L. Stokes. The consumers federation of St. Louis began a buyers' strike against several stores singled out because of high prices. Pickets carried signs protesting the high cost of living and urging restoration of tho OPA. Five CIO unions picketed the huge terminal market at Reading, Forty business houses, mostly food dealers, were picketed in the Philadelphia-Camden, N. J. area. CIO Marine and shipbuilding Workers picketed milk venders at their shipyards'to protest the sale of milk at 14 cents a pint. The union claimed that no milk - was sold at Cramp's shipyard yesterday, although workers had bought 900 pints and half-pints the previous night. The New York City Consumer Council, representing 65 civic, labor and social welfare organizations, said a buyers" 1 strike would begin July 23 with demonstrations in five busy shopping centers. Consumers will be asked to buy only esential foods during the strike. Other organizations, including the Congress of American Women, were asked to join the demonstrations, and the council predicted that the movement would spread throughout the nation. At Quincy, Mas., 9,000 CIO shipyard workers agreed to buy the least possible amount of food. The union said an 18-ccnl hourly pay raise granted in May nad been wiped out by increased living costs. The CIO United Auto Workers Union urged its locals to stage demonstrations on a nationwide basis July 16. The union authorized members to leave their jobs for no more than two hours on any on shift to lake part in the demonstrations. Butter and bread sales were slower in some fashionable sections or Portland, Ore., but r e- mained normal in other parts of the city. Bismarck, N. D., grocers predicted a drop in butter prices after consumers had refused to buy at high prices. Associated Press Enterprise Ass'n.

The court's decision culminated a suit broughl by GI candidales lor Garland county and district offices in which the plaintiffs charged that, Ihe McLaughlin machine had taken steps to Control about one third of the county's 12,000 votes _ The suit came within federal lunsdiction by reason of the pro- Ppscd written candidacy of Patrick ri.

McDERMOTT berhn, July 11 — (UP) —Dis- annearance of four -Americans behind the iron curtain across lhe Knssian zone of Berlin posed an inlernalional inyslery loday. Tighl-lipped American authorities Kept to themselves what they had been told in several days of futile negotiations with Red Army officials for the release of three U. S.,, Army officers and the wife of one of them. _ Blocked at every turn, the Americans finally took the matter lo the highest levels. Gen, Joseph T. McNarney conferred with Marshal Vassily D. Sokolovsky, reliable sources reported. What was said at the reported conference was a part of the mystery. But high military authorities made it plain that all efforts to get word from the Russians why lhe Americans were held had failed. The missing Americans were Warranl Officer Samuel L. Harrison and his wife of Harrah, Okla , and San Antonio, Tex., Capt Harold Cobin of Newark, N. J., and Lt. George Wyatt of Oklahoma City. The Harrisons went looking for a kennel where they could buy a dog on July 1, and apparently wandered carelessly over the lino into the Russian occupation zone. They were heard of no more. Cobin and Wyatt boarded a train :'or nearby Oranienburg in the Russian zone July 4 and likewise disappeared. ,, Ar > officer said U.

Washington, July U —UP— Thc death of Sidney Hillman, chairman of the CIO's political ac- lion committee, may lead to thc divorce of the PAC and the Democratic party, congressional observers said today. Hillman, who died of a heart ailment yesterday, strongly opposed left-wing proposals that the PAC form a political party of its own. Hillman sought to work in cooperation with established political groups, but now thai his reslrain- ing hand has been removed, a bit- lor intcr-PAC struggle may be touched oil over the Ihird parly issue. An immediate effect o f Hillman's death may be the defeal in lhe fall eleclions of "pro-labor" congresmon from industrial districts of New York, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Many of these were defending upon the PAC for the Housc-lo-Housc canvasing and Hit roulinc ward work lhal spells suc- ccs in politics. Should the PAC .shatter intp brawling factions, Ihis routine work would go by thc board. And there were signs thai ihe internal struggle already has begun. R. J. Thomas, vice-president of the United Auto Workers (CIO) and Secretary Treasurer of the PAC, appeared to be the logical man to step into Hillman's shoes. But because of his feuds with other factions inside his own union, Thomas was certain to draw stiff opposition. Walter P. Reulher, who defealed Thomas in a fighl for the UA presidency early Ihis year, said lhal CIO President Phillip Murray is the only man to head PAC. But hc conceded that "it is doubtful" thai Murray would lake Ihc job. II was suggcsled in some quarters lhat Van. A.

But Bitlner never has been idenli- lied wilh polilics and il was prc- dicled lhat his selection would in- d i' cat r?A^ step low ards liquidating the PAC altogether. It was believed thai a series of left-wing candidates would be advanced by radical elements in the Funeral for Hillman Set for Friday New York, July 11—(/P(—Funeral f erv ,ices for Sidney Hillman will be held at Carnegie Hall at noon tomorrow.
