Germany, July 11 —(/P) — Seventy-three Waffen SS veterans, including three generals, were tound guilty by an American military court today of the slaughter of 900 American war prisoners and Belgian civilians in the Battle of the Bulge. The president of the court, speaking after an hour's deliberation, announced all 73 defendants were "found guilty of the particulars and charges." The defendants included Gen. Josef (Sepp) Dietrich, commander of the 6th Panzer Army and survivor of Hitler's origina'l beer hall putsch in nearby Munich; Lt. Gen. Herman Priess, comrmmdcr of the 1st SS Panzer Corps; Brig. Gen. Fritz Kraemcr. chief of staff of the 6th Panzer Army. The burden of prosecution evidence was directed against Col. Jeachim Pepper, daredevil commander of "Task Force Pcipcr," whose men participated in the massacre of unarmed American prisoners at Malmedy. After the verdict of the stern- faced American officers serving as judges was made known, defense counsel began presenting evidence that might be considered as extenuating when sentence is passed, possibly early next week. Spectators were generally surprised that all 73 defendants had been convicted as a unit. It was the largest mass conviction yet handed down by American justice against accused German war criminals. Peiper, like his fellow prisoners, took the court's announcement stoically.

F. -tdens, who urged northeast Arkansas communities to join in a program of educational advancement. Dr. Edens said the college's state appropriation is inadequate to care for its increase in enrollment, which he estimated at more than 100 percent. Helena was awarded the 1947 convention and beauty pagcnal. Governor Lancy also spoke, prais ing the EAYMC for its work in publicizing Arkansas. o UN's on the Move Again Workmen put the finishing touches to conversion of the grand ballroom of New York's Hendrick Hudson hotel into a temporary meeting place for the United Nation's Security Council.

GRUMICH New York, July 1 — I/I')— A formal Austrai.an demand for review of the veto rule by the United Nations general .assembly occupied the attention of U. N. delegates 'today after Soviet Russia had tried to use the veto yesterday to bar Canada from security council deliberations on atomic energy. Tho Russian move was blocked by a ruling by Council Chairman Francisco Castillo Najera of Mexico, but Soviet Delegate Andrei A. Gromyko's grim insistence Ihat he would again seek to veto Canada's attendance spurr'ed a campaign for restriction of the veto power to '•nainr questions bearing on the most serious and urgent mailers aiiecting the peace. Australian .foreign Minister Herbert V. Eva It, who sought to convince Gromyko in heated debate on and off the council floor yesterday that ho could not exclude Canada willy-nilly, led the campaign by for mally requesting Hint tin- veto' rule bo listed for discussion by the general assembly in September. Visibly elated over the success of challenging maneuvers he led to block Gromyko's latest veto attempt, Evatl indulged in a whimsical paraphrase before the council: "Sufficient to Iho day is the veto thereof." The remark- prefaced his s-iluta- tion to Dr. Castillo Najera, who is retiring from the council presidency after Mexico's oivc-month term in the chair — a month in which tho council experienced its stormiest sesion two weeks ago when Gromyko fired a volley of three vetoes on the Spanish issue Castillo Najera took his leave of the council by saying in part: "Owing to recent incidents in the ,,. , , „„. deliberations of this council a Vicksburg, Miss...

Gromyko, replying in his turn to Castillo Nnjcrn's farewell, cx- presed doubts as to the merits of valedictories of retiring chairmen, and replied: " XX X If Dr, Nnjera hopes to achieve important results from this statement, his hopes will be disappointed; his statement will not have the effect that he expects." Dr. Eelco Van Kleffens of the Nelnerlands, who will succeed Castillo Najera in the chair at the next meeting, complimented both the Mexican and Dr. Kvall, who also is leaving in attend tho Paris peace conference on their "firmness" in blocking the Russian veto.

Bilbo Backers Planning Big Celebration By MARTHA COBLE Jackson Miss., July 11 — (UPl — The pink lemonade and barbecue were mising, but ihe bands and flag-studded platform were on hand today for Sen. Theodore Bilbo's "victory celebration" tonight. Ihe leather limped solon with vhe blood-red suspenders was set to c'jinmcmorato his re-election to a third term in the Senate with a "hog wild" political rally. "Strictly good old days stuff," Bilbo explained. The pink lemonade and the barbecues were scratched off the list because of .sugar and meat shortages, msioaci, uibs of ice water were planned to refresh (he celebrants. The tolks who voted "Ihe man" in for another six years of southern statesmanship were 1 pouring into Jackson today, tugged out in their Sunday finery. They were anxious to converg upon iTiuxdu-swiithcd Poindexter Park for the big show. The featured attraction, of course, was a speech by Bilbo himself. The senator announced his subject as "brotherly love and sisterly affection." But titles don't mean much in Bilbo speeches. The folks who have heard him for three decades of Missisippi politics knew he'll talk about white supremacy, Bilbo ancl the "latest great awakening of the spirit in Misissippi." Bilbo headquarters sent out invitations to each of the 72 counties which gave "Tho Man" his 8,000-odd vole majority over four opponents in last week's Democratic primary—the equivalent of a general election in the solid South. "We don't care whether they voted for us or against us," a Bilbo spokesman said. "We just want everyone to come out and join in the big celebration." Jackson newspaper advertisements today carried invitations to "one and all" to attend the big party. But the folks who would cheer the loudest didn't live in Jackson. They lived in the backwoods and hills which gave Bilbo his^ biggest majorities. They moved into town today for one of those rare visits, ancl they were set lo cheer until milking time rolled around.
