His pay is $7,500 a week, plus a percentage of the gross over a certain figure, which brings his total take to about $10,000 a week, an unprecedented night-club salary. . . The Zanibar grabbed off Jack Benny's Rochester to appear there during Benny's stay in New York.

After failing to get Jackie Miles, La Martinique signed Ben Blue and his act, which will be the last to play the cellar saloon on 57th St. until fall, the owners having decided the inability to get acts of any stature to play the town through the hot months, and the heat itself—sending the night club regulars to the beaches and mountains—would result in too much red ink. . . Several other clubs of major stature arc seriously considering shuttering through "uly and August. ROUGH LAY Phoenix, Ariz., July 9— (JP) —Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Dudley W.

Many Veterans Aided by Hope Office in June A total of 519 veterans and members of their families visited the Veterans Administration Contact Office in Hope during June according to Thomas J. Booker of the Veterans Administration Office. During May 485 veterans received information and counseling at the office. Last month the office prepared 104 applications for Government benefits, including applications foi reinstatement and conversion of National Service Life Insurance, free educational and training benefits, and other matters administered by the Veterans Administration. During May the contact office prepared 88 of the applications for its clients. In addition to maintaining an office in Hope, the Veterans Administration Representative makes periodic visits to Prescott, Murfrccs- boro and Nashville in order to serve the veterans in those communities. Contact mcn in the 28 Veterans Administration Offices throughout Arkansas conducted a total of 13,637 interviews during June as compared with 20,647 during May. rfenciit applications throughout the state decreased from 5,002 to 3,- U51 during tne same period. o High School Grid Playoff Plan May Fail By CARL BELL Associated Press Sports Writer Arkansas' High school football playoff, to be used for the first time this fall, won't work desirably as it now stands. That has been our suspicion since Ihe plan was adopled. Johnnie Burnett, executive secretary of the Arkansas Athletic Asociation, and most of the coaches with whom we've talked concur. The cheerful point is, they all declare ,lhat the system adopted by the AAA last winter is a start from which a better plan may be molded. Burnett doesn't want the state's grid fans to give up on the playoff idea if the test run is a flop. "Many improvements will have to be made," says Johnic. "Bul they can't be made now. We'll have to sec how the original plan works first. Then we can improve it by the trial and error method " Several months ago James Abraham, then president of the AAA commented that the playoff set-up "has a lot of bugs in it but lhey'11 Inave to be worked out along through the seasons." The playoff, as a matter of 'act, is just about the only thing on which Burnett is not working these days. Although he's occupied the recently created position of high school sports "commissioner" only six weeks, the energetic Johnie has mapped out an extensive program of improvements and expansions. Foremost among his current activities is an effort to coordinate work and rule interpretations of lootball officials. He has met with officials twice, plans five district officials' clinics and one statewide conference with the referees. For 'he latter he hopes to have Coach Dana Bible of Texas University as principal .speaker. After completing his work with officials, Burnett plans to "educate' high school coaches and athletes on eligibility regulations. Posters listing eligibility qualifica- t"nn«r »re tn be tacked up in every coach's office and every dressing room. Johnie doesn't want to have to be a "detective" on eligibility problems. He believes general knowledge of the regulations will lighten nis enforcement duties. "Thre are too many flase charges of ineligibility, made because the complainants don't know what makes a player eligible or ineligible," he contends. Burnett is investigating the possibility of "group insurance" for Ihe slate's high school alhlclics. He says such a plan would cover even minor injuries. This is a good move. States wilh players insurance plans swear by them. Joiner Johnic's travel schedule is beginning to look something like Mrs. Hoosevelt's. Since he look office Juno 1 he has visited Tennessee, Louisiana, Misouri and Illinois, studying those states' athletic organizations. He left Little Rock today (Thurs) to spend two days in Fayettevillc conferring with U of A. coaches, and he intends to visit Oklahoma and Texas to study their playoff systems before the 1946 season gets under way. In between trips and other work Burnetl is trying to locate office space in Little Rock. So far he has been unsuccesful and has set up temporary business headquarters in his home. EVERY KROGER BRAND ITEM GUARAKTEED^W -o— Washington By D. HAROLD OLIVER Washington—The road of a President is not all rocks and ruts. For example, consider the gifts he receives. President Truman gets about 200 a month, more at Christmas. They come from persons all over the world mostly by mail, borne arc presented in person sometimes with photographers present, sometimes not. The President is allowed to keep all gifis addressed to him and intended for him personally, even if they come from a foreign government. Gifts to the govern- »]u' n ~ say a valuable book for the White House library—remain the property of Uncle Sam. A grcal variety of things arc mailed to the President and members of his family. Shirts, nylons, books by the score—mostly autographed—some yellowed with age- hand-painled neckties, bedspreads hand-embroidered tablecloths, vases, canes, hats, suits, prize-winning pies, fish, turkeys, crates ot asoaragus, cans of honey. More than 200 shirts have hecu received at the White House since the President tried unsuccessfully w> buy some on a trip lo Kansas Uty. Just lus size too, most of them. They came from firms and individuals, A farmer sent one of his old ones, freshly laundered. Mr. Truman has given some of these away. They went lo a reporter, same neck a n d sleeve length, during a news conference. There are several repositories for gifts. The President has a built-in case in his office where he displays some of them. Wearing apparel and household goods go to Ihe living iiuartors. On the third floor is a "gift closet" 'or gifts that, probably will never be used; ties a little too loud for the dignity of the office: red-whitc- and-blue salt and pepper shakers, etc. Down in the basement is a "chamber of horrors" for gimcracks. Among Ihe latest gifts was n set of instruments that belonged to the Brilish ship Resolute. Queen Victoria presented President Hnycs n desk made from 1hfc Resolute's timber; This desk still reposes in the President's study In the White House proper. The little box of instruments wns donated by T. G. Todd of Mobile, Ala; Carved portraits of FDR and his successor recently arrived from Colombia ns a gift from that country s Evangelical churches. A Peoria, 111., donor sent an "Invasion prayer" on copper plnle; commemorating June 6, 1044, Each gift was acknowledged, by the White House if personal, by the State Department if governmental. The Secret Service gels the first crnck at them, with an X-ray machine. Doubtful ones arc tossed into water. Kditales go first lo the Agriculture Department for tests.

Blnck, 28. paroled automobile thief, was taken from the Nor- risotown jail today to re-enact the killing o fJoshop Wicen, 32, carpenter and veteran of two years fight- Ing in Europe. Police Chief Fred K.

Don't shool me!" Troopers Raymond Nighan and Herbert L. Hoffman sold their objective in hiking Black over the 20-mile route traversed of the death ride was lo determine exactly where the slaying occurred. They said Black's account indicated Wicen was shot in MontgomKy county. The body was found in Lohigh county in a garbage dump behind a church in Trcxlcrlown, four miles wesl of Allcnlown, where Maclnnis said Black led of- ticcrs lasl nighl and said: "Thtiro he is." A bare leg was slicking up through the debris. Police had to shovel away rubbish and garbage and remove the victim's clothes which had been thrown over him lo get the body. HEAR YE!

It is evident that the Communist tactics in every union where they have managed lo seize a strong hold. it is evident that Ihe Communists in the labor movement think they're smart.

They obviously believe thai Ihe rank and file can be led or pushed, rallied by song and slogan, and made lo swallow any preposterous story lhal suits Ihe leaders' puipose, so long as il is lold loudly and often enough.

DITTMER Washington, July 12 — (UP) —A lasl-clilch battle to slave off con- grcsional action on atomic energy control legislation was underway in the House Rules Committee >oday Oulspoken House opponcnls of the Senate-approved plan to place only civilian personnel in key atomic energy development posts urged the committee to lei the measure die. Proponents asked that the committe send it to Ihe House xloor for considcralion immediately.

Adamson concluded that the army rather than civilians should 'exercise permanent control over Ihe manufacture of atomic energy." Adamson protested that -"ormor seienlific employes of the Oak Ridge reservation have organized seienlific socilies in Chicago New York ,Deli-oil and other cities He said that the groups cooperate with similar societies within the reservation.

Judges, Clerks Are Named by Committee Faced" with the task of naming possibly four sets of-election officials the Hempstead County Democratic Central Committee in a meeting yesterday at Hope City Hall announced officials for the Federal Preferential Primary Election which will be held next Tuesday, July 16. W. S. Atkins, chairman of the committee, presided. The group discussed a few problems the biggest of which seemed to be finding election officials willing to serve. Although the federal court has ruled that counties are responsible for financing the extra elections most counties have not appropriated funds. It is believed Hempstead will stand the extra election'costs as Judge Fred A. Luck.has indicated he is 'willing' to put .up the money, several members reported. : Election officials will be notified of, their'.duties by letter. The polls open: at-8 'k'.m. and close at 6 p.m. "The.group'.will meet again July 19 to^m'ake'the official vote count, on the ifederal primary and probably will appoint a-.new set' of official's fflfc the'county'and state' preferential primary which .will be held on July 30. Most members indicated in a discussion they expected no unusual incidents arising from the question of negroes voting in Hempstead. Although judges and clerks as named by each commitleeman for the various townships were approved at the meeting Thursday afternoon the list was not released for publication Friday afternoon. ..

With these and other amendments lined up, Iho Senate disposed of other pending business temporarily delaying aclion on a bill to restore curtailed OPA authority for a year.. A drive also was on to clinch the exemptions previously voted for meat, milk and sundry other items Republicans got behind the new campaign after barely failing to rip from the measure provisions which Senator Taft (R-Ohio) said could prevent manufacturers from getting needed price increases'. The GOP objective was to com'' pel the House to vote specifically on the various decontrols already • ordered by the Senate. Adminis-" tration leaders were worried over Ihe oulcome.

Senate insistence almost certainly would compel the House Con- feres to lay these decontrols before the full chamber for test ballots. Taft said these votes probably would nail down the exemptions. The Senate still had to take care of a few other proposed amend- monts before gelling around to a vote of its own on final pasage of the new OPA bill. Senator Russell (D-Ga) had one in mind to assure lhat southern'pine used for pulpwoqd would gel as high a ceiling nriee as any olher pine used for that purpose.

Senate Majority Leader Barkley (Ky) told reporters Ihere is a pos- sibilily the procesors might 'be caught in a squeeze. But he said there also is a danger that any such relief steps might lead t'j "freezing and legalizing" all price increases since June 30. Also, in one final effort to bring OPA back bodily from the grave, Senator Wagner (D-NY), Pepper D-Fla and a handful of others said they would demand a vote on a complete substitute for the current bill.
