CRABBE BROS. PIANO CO. "Texarkana's Only Exclusive Piano Co." 515 Buchanan Avenue Texarkana, U. S. A. Ne%v York, July 11—The career of Murray Garsson, the promoter who seems to have imposed upon the sturdy bul highly credulous honesty of Andrew Jackson May, of Kentucky, presents a delightful sludy, as well pursued in court records and in the reminiscences of policemen in New York as in he meager records revealed in Washington. Mr. May. a _back- voods congresman and chairman jf the Military Affairs Committee }f the House of representatives, •vnew Murray Garsson iior years but knew nothing questionable ibout him. The outline of Carson's bank- .uplcips, his asociation with eminent New York gangsters of the 3ronibition era and his arrests, and data on his brother, Henry, lave been entered in the congres- imnal record. Mr. May would seem to have jeen no more careless, however, han others in times past or the army officers who dealt with 'ihe Carson Corporations. The F. B. I lad the records of both and Gov. Tom Dewey, of New York, Ed rtulrooney, the retired police com- misioner and a number of others lere had picked up their trail, par- icularly Murray's, now and again or years. Mr. Dewey remembered Murray as a figure in a bribery case in he federal court when Carson vas a special asistant to William 3oak, who was secretary of labor under Herbert Hoover. The most interesting detail disclosed in a day's search here was loan of $130,000 worth of stock of the Twentieth Century Fox Corporation lo Murray Garsson by oseph Schenck. Willie Bioff, the old brothel keeper who had found his socia) level among the aristocracy of Holly- vood, testified on his trial for exertion that Joe had loaned Garson $200,000. A later witnes, Joe Vloscowitz, Mr . Schenck's bookkeeper, went into more detail. He said Schenck loaned $202,837.50 to limself and Garson which was paid for the stocks and that 5,000 shares, worth then approximately $130,000, was Carson's share of ,hc loan. Garsson endorsed the stock in blank to Schenck. Had it gone up, Garson, apparently, ,vould have had a profit. This point vas not developed. It was later sold for $120,000. Moscowitz said jarsson got none of Ihe proceeds. Nor. said he, did Schenck lake a ax loss. Moscowilz said Garsson was a close friend ot Schenck. This loan was made in Nov. 1937. At that time, Garson was winding up a career of three years as an nycstigalor for the House Com- iiittce investigating corporate reorganizations and bond-holding companies with the ostensible pur- iosc of protccling investors Irom Iraud. There hud been many reorganizations and receiverships in he motion picture industry in which the Fox interests worn involved, and Carson's official clu- ,ics as invesligator took him to rlollywood. He was in a position to make recommendations to the commillec, known as Ihc Sabath Committee, in honor of its chairman, Ihe Hon. Ad Sabath, of Chicago. He could favor the compa- ilcs, including Schenck's, or he could, if, for any reason, he felt prejudiced against the magnates :if Hollywood, turn thumbs down. The nature of his rccpmmenda- ions as to the Schenck interests I do not yet know. But I do know lhal Moscowilz teslificd that Mur- WE'LL REMOVE THOSE RATTLES and BANGS If your car sounds like a jynk pile in motion bring \t to our fender and body .shop.

Scott's resignation from the Naval Academy became official yesterday and his mother, Mrs. Luther Scott, said she thought he would enter the University of Arkansas along with a younger brother, Tracy. She said Clyde was expected home "soon." At Annapolis. Scott said last night that he was "on my way to Smackover." He was not specific on where he intends lo conlinue his educalion and athlelic career except thai he wanted to attend "a college somewhere in the mid- west." Rumors have been in circulation for months thai Scoll would resign and cnlcr Arkansas, to which he was headed when he received his naval appointment a few years ago. At Fayettcville, only Asistant Razorback Coach Hobart Hoosicr, a close friend of Navy Coach Tom Hamilton, was available for comment. Ho declared he knew nothing of Scott's intentions. Head' Coach John Barnhill was on vacation. Selective Service officials in Washington said Scotl's resignation from the Naval Academy made him eligible for induction into Ihc armed forces by draft. o Hurling Match Rained Out Friday Night Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock the Hope Baseball Team will play Ihe Tri-state Sluggers of Texarkana at Fair park, between Ferguson of tho Cobb- Lasl night's polcnlial hurling duel Toolcy team and "Roy Taylor of Hefner's was rained out, disappointing local Softball fans.

Chance Company Texarkana, Texas 1729 New Boston Road Phone 231 ray Garsson got a loan o£ $130,000 from a man whose intercsls he was in a position to serve or to harm. That such a man, with such a record as Garsson's, could get S'ich a job, with its implications of great trust and honor, hardly vinoicates Mr. May's Gullibility. Mr. Sabath, however, was equally naive, if so mild a word is appropriate. Herbert Hoover said he was surprised to read in the acc'oi'"ts of the Washington Investigation o I War . profiteering by Gar«son's companies under May's patronage, that Garson had held a job as special assistant to the secretary of labor, William Doak, in his administration. . In this job, Garson was placed in a position to control the cases of immigrants, including prominent and high-salaried foreign actors in Hollywood and wealthy sojourners in the east. A racket had developed i n immigration which then was administered by the department of labor and Mr. Doak, on Sept. 12, 1931, went on the air over the Columbia system, to say: "I have .appointed a special assistant the Hon. Murray W Garson of New York to supervise and assist the agent we had investigating this racketeering." Aboul two minths later, the Hon. Murray W. Garson look Ihc stand as a character witness ior a relative of Mr. Doak who had been .indicted on a charge of fraud in I the practice of this racket. Apparently ,thc F. B .1. had given the I Hcrlands, no report on the Hon. | Prosecuting Attorney, V/Uham I Herlands, no, report on the Hon. I Murray W. Carson's own charac- |ter, so he was not even challenged as a sponsor of the defendant and the jury disagreed. In the Labor Department job, Garsson had charge of a group of investigators who were supposed to round up aliens who had jumped ship or otherwise entered the United Slales illegally, persons who had made false statements in their naturalization papers and visitors who had ' overstayed their permits. Graft had developed and Garsson was selected as a man above temptation to deal with individuals who were willing lo pay a great price to stay here. In Hollywood, where he spent much time, there were alien actors who could i'Jford to pay heavily for Ihe privilege of remaining and moving picture companies with enormous interests at take on the recommendations of the special assistant. Mr. Hoover said Garson hold a minor position and that he had lover heard of him until a few days ago when the Mead commil- lee's revelations were published. In August, 1926, the rtothmcre orporation, owned by Arnold Rothstcin, the most notorious New York criminal of the prohibition era, sued Murray Garsson and thers to foreclose a mortgage on a midtown office building Garsson and his associates had borrowed 1540,000 and Rothstein recovered. Rothstcin was murdered on Nov. 6, 1928. The F. B. I. report suggeit.s that in 1932, when he was DcjciU'.s aoh,i.ii.- ant, Garson was concerned in an effort lo mop deportation proc'jed- ingj against Owney Madden, a paroled murderer, and that he ah.o was associated with Dutch Schultz, the departed gangster. If the F. B. I. could turn up so much by .sending a clerk to a iile and a reporter in one day could produce the additional datu on Garson here presented, the army would seem lo have been .KJ less remiss than Mr. May, Mr. Sabath and Mr. Doak, in its own .fuilurc uj establish the character of the Hon. Murray W. Unpredictable Dodgers May Again Skid By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer Leave it to the unpredictable Brooklyn Dodgers lo upset one of major league baseball's most ancient traditions. Of the 18 National League clubs hat have led the pack " on July Fourth only to yield first place to another team in the past 47 years, live of them represented Brooklyn. And it appeared today that unless tin? skidding Dodgers right themselves pretty quick, they might make it six of the last 10. Their two most recent collapses occurred in 1942 when the Brooks bow a 10-game Independence Day lead to the St. Louis Cardinals, and 1st year, when they saw a three and a half game lead vanish as the Chicago CUDS overtook them in the second half of the season. This year the Dodgers may be following the same pattern. Last July Fourth, Leo Durochcr's outfit cnjo'ycd a seven game edge over the Cards and looked like a spcn- did bet to oppose the American League entry in the World Scries. Today, exactly six playing days later, the Rcdbirds have narrowed the gap to three and a half games, with an excellent opportunity to whittle Brooklyn's lead still further when they engage the Flatbush cresv in a four-game scries starting tomorrow. The Cardinals gained a game and a half on the league leader yesterday by sweeping both ends of a double header from the New York Giants 2- land 5-4 while the Chicago Cubs handed the Dodgers their second straight defeat 13-2. Dave (Boo) Ferris gained his 13th pitching success and his eighth straight over Detroit as the American League leading Boston Red Sox defeated the Tigers 4-2 to increase their margin over the idle jVew York Yankees to eight games. A crowd of 26,290 increased the Red Sox attendance for 40 home games to 740,517, 10,000 more than their previous record high set, in 1942. Rudy York, ex-Tiger, provided the winning runs for the league loaders when he slammed his llth home run with one man on b;ise in the eighth inning. The blow came oft Virgil Trucks with a 3-0 ;p""t on him. Johnny Sain pitched n ono-hiltor as me Boston'Graves eked out a 1-0 decision over the Cincinnati Reds. I The cellar dwelling Pittsburgh Pirates quelled a ninth inning Philadelphia rally to defeat the Phillies 4-3 and move to within three games of the seventh place Quakers. With Dick Fowler bagging his sixth mound win, the Philadelphia Athletics chased starter Jack Kramer with a three run fourth inning and went on to defeat the St. Louis Browns 7-2. Wet grounds prevented Washington and the Chicago White Sox from playing while the New York Yankees and Cleveland were enjoying an off day. Cut by Bears By the Associated Press Atlanta's Southern Association lead was cut to six and one-half games last nignt as the league leading Crackers went down before the Mobile Bears and second place Chattanooga blanked Little Rock. George Shuba's two-run homer in the third gave Mobile a 3-1 win over the Crackers and deprived Pitcher Earl McGowan of his 14th victory of the season. McGowan pitched two-hit ball but it wasn't enough to stop the Stars. Clyde King gave up six hits to the losers. It was Mobile's second win of the three-game series and Atlanta's fifth loss in its last seven games. At Chattanooga, the Lookouts gave the hometown fans a thrill by trouncing Little iTuck, 5-U, for a clean sweep of the series. The Lookouts did all their scoring in Ihe first three innings, then coasted the rest of tho way as Maxie Wilson gave up only five hits. The game was completed under protest after Manager Willis Htid- lin questioned the umpires decision on a foul ball. Memphis broke even in a doubleheader with Nashville, taking the first game, 0-2, and dropping the afterpiece, 4-7. in the first game, the Chicks scored all six runs .in the opening Breakdown of UNRRA in China Due to 'Mishandling 7 , Termed Tragedy to Stricken Country By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst The breakdown of. Chinese distribution of. UNRRA food, resulting in director-general LnQuardia ordering all but emergency supplies withheld from China, appears to nave been clue to grave "mishandling," to use a Euphemism, but call it by any name you will nnd it still is a tragedy in view of the terrible famine conditions in that stricken country. UNRRA staff members in China custom permits him to help himself to his lordship's whiskey nnd port. "Squeeze" is a prerogative which is widely condoned in the Orient by tradition. The letter at hand says that "squeeze" is an accepted fact in every negotiation, even with handling of UNRRA supplies the Chinese. It would be the by interesting," continues the writer, "to know whnl a small percentage of the relief supplies ever; reach ith'o war cle- liave accused Generalissimo Chi- P vaslalcd areas in CHWa )t for every iing Kai-Shek's government of iail-1 person handling ' (hern- gels his ing lo gel materials lo millions in 'em,**-,*' ,,„,! iiin>ii.»&f<iiv,r< ,•,„,•,„!„ he interior, and of using relief ^oods for political ends. It is said :hat supplies also arc reaching the jlack markets. T. F. Tsiang, head of the Chinese National Relief nnd Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA), in appealing to Mr. LaGuardia to rescinded the order cutting relief, admitted to newsmen that "local in- :erfcrcncc by both sides" (Chinese Nationalists and Chinese Communists) had prevented supplies i'rom reaching assigned areas. He declared, however, that this conta- vcncd orders by both Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek and the Communist commanders. All this leaves a lot unexplained, and I have before me a letter from a well-informed American resident of China which takes the matter a good deal deeper. This letter deals with what is known as "squeeze" in China. ."Squeeze" is the equivalent of "honest graft." That's what the butler gets when Babe Zaharias Favored fro Take Tourney By BEN FUNK Denver, July 3 —(/P)—The sllcad- iest operators .in the '.vomcn's Trans-Missisippi Golf Tom—Imont Didrikson Zaharias and Polly Riley — met t o d n y in a grueling 3fi-hole championship battle, with the Babe the favorite on the aclcted oompn behind her clubs. The Denver par-buster and the Fort Wort h, Tex., champion shared medalist honors in Mon- squeeze' and ' , -people , arc inland' so far that 5 many, work ers handle the supplied." In this connection' Tung Pi-Wu, chairman of the Communist relief organization, stated yesterday that only half of one percent of all UNRRA supplies sent to China had seeped through to Communist areas. Previously UNRRA em- ployes in Shanghai had estimated that less than two percent of relief goods reached the Communist districts, a statement which T. F. Tsi- nng described as "misleading" since it didn't take into account the almost complete breakdown of communications due to the war, and to the fact that many supplies were machinery and the like no intended for the interior. In any event there is no dispute about faulty distribution. But that isn't the most shocking point dealt with by the letter at hand. My informant, writing under date of June 5, mentions having seen supplies from original UNRRA shipments on sale in the Shanghai black-market. Of course "squeeze" and other bad handling of supplies doesn't by any moans account for all the difficulties. It is all too true that, there is scant rail and water transportation remaining in China after the long years of war-time destruction, and former President Herbert Hoover said in Shanghai of Mfv 30 that the tonage needs relief were greater than the transportation incilittos. At that time Mr. Hoover dc scribed the food need of China as "enormous", with whole villages .in the interior facing extinction. He said it was imposiblc to compute the numbers of people in critical conditions, but no doubt they day's qualifying round with four- 1 ran into millions. Unhappy China " under par 73s over the Denver country club fairways, then began methodically mowing down all mopposition in a four-match march to the title round.

HALL, Owner 208 N. Ferguspn Phone 76 But who, one may wonder, would do betler in the long run? And what government would care to step forward and volunteer to take Palestine off Britain's hands and settle the whole controversy? Britain's presence there is the ' result of Allcnby's liberation of Palcslino in World War I. The sil- ualioii was somewhat comparable to our own conquest and later administration of Japan within the pasl year. But Britain inherited an old ancj explosive problem. Palestine is homeland and holy land lo Arabs as well as Jews. This facl was recognized in Ihe ofl-cilicd Balfour Declaration of 1917, which, while slating Brilain's support of Jewish settlement in the national homeland, specified that this should not. " prejudice the rights of Palestine's non-Jewish residents. The real author of the current trouble is nol Attlcc, Bevin, Churchill or Eden. II is Adolf Hitler. To most of us, Palestine seems the logical place for the Jewish survivors of llillcrism. But lhal plan docs nol seem logical lo the Arab world. In fact, it socms so illogical that ils leaders, in politely diplomatic words, have unmistakably threalcned a large-scale war of opposition in which Ihey would », seek lo invoke Russian aid. So, among oilier things, Britain been trying to avoid another producls, so long as oil supplies do nol drop below domestic demand. It undoubtedly _was this list of exemptions thai prompted Mr. Truman lo say the OPA bill "is in terrible shape" and "couldn't be any worse." He used those phrases in reporting on the slalus of price controls to Secretary of State Byrnes and Senators Connally (D- Tex) and Vandenberg (R-Mich) upon their return yesterday from the Paris Foreign Ministers' conference. A formidable group of Republicans who claims some democratic support want to accept the Senate bill "as-is" and sent it along to M- Truman without fo.iowing tho usual procedure of referring it .list lo a Senate-House conference. Administration ladcrs, hopeful of rewriting the measure almosl completely, or at least knowing out all or more of the exemptions, want Ihe bill scril lo conference. Some said privately il would be veloed if il reaches the White House in its present form. "You might as well not have any price controls at all if you're going to take all the important things out from under controls," aserted Rep. Monroney (D-Okla). "This is nol a price control bill. It is a price decontrol measure." Three courses lie open ior the House when it voles tomorrow: 1. II may send Ihe Senale bill direclly to the White House. 2. It may simply send the bill to conference without specific recommendations to its own conferees, or, 3. II may send il lo conference, with instructions lo fighl against some of the Senate proposals and to accept others. In the evenl the second course is decided upon, some lawmakers said Ihey would try to arrange meeting octwccn conference committee members and Mr. Truman in an effort lo reach an advance understanding on just what would be necessary lo assure a new price control law. Under cither conference pro cedure, lilllc difficulty was expected in reaching an agreement on these other provisions of the Senate bill. By United Pres Labor unions planned walkouts and buyers' strikes today lo pro- lesl Ihe slcady rise of prices. A survey of principal cilics prices lor basic foods and other across Ihe nation showed thai prices for basic foods and other commodities were continuing to mount. At Chicago, Walter P. Reuthcr, president of the powerful CIO United Automobile Workers announced lhal Ihc union's 800,000 members would quil work lo- morrow for one or Iwo hours lo protest rising prices. If price conlrols are nol reinstated, Reuthcr predicted, there would be a buyers' strike "such as this country nas 'icvcr known." HP warned thai if prices arc not curbed Ihc UAW would "begin a light on Ihc wage front". At Minneapolis, 100 AFL truck- drivers ana n.uui) allihaled union workers planned a mass "work loliday" prolcsl demonstration ior July 31. Union leaders said only emergency deliveries would be made by union drivers. Al Springfield, 111., Prcsidenl John B. Marchiando of the independent progresivc mine workers " America, representing about 30,3 coal miners, urged all labor unions to join in demands for "suitable price control." "If neccsary, labor should call a nationwide strike against all industry lo show Congress we won't let anyone lake away tne few dollars we've saved during the war," : loin a mass meclmg. At Hartford, Conn., presidents of the 100 CIO unions planned lo meet lomorrow la discuss plans for stale-wide buyers' strike. CIO unions at Philadelphia planned a mass demonstration at the city hall and continued picketing stores allegedly engaging in price gouging. Cattle prices again set an all- time high al Chicago. One le-ad of choice 1,200 pound steers sold at $25 per hundredweight — 1.75 cents above the previous high paid last week. The bulk of good and cuoice siec'rs sold at lrom .$23 to $24, compared with $22.50 last week. Al 12 principal livestock markets, cattle receipts had dropped lo 52,400 from 77JJ81 a week ago. Hogs numbered 98,600 loday, compared wilh 103,603 last Monday. Many retail butchers ( at Cleveland had abandoned the p'racticc of placing price markets on meat cuts. They were telling the price only lo Ihose interested in buying. Milk lomorrow will go up two cents lo 18 cents per' quart. At Philadelphia, ineat generally was up 25 per cent above OPA ceilings. Retailers reported some consumer resistance to paying 90 cents ner pound for butter. At Columbus, O., the Rc- tau Giuccrs Associalion reported scattered consumer resentment at butler prices averaging 30 ccnls per pound and said that sales were "definitely retarded." There was, however, no organized buyers' strike. Al Portland, Ore., slack consumer demanud brought butti' ciown to 02 cents a pound in some stores. The wholesale price Was 72 to 73 cents. Retailers said they wore taking a loss to bring customers inlo tho stores. Butler previously had reached prices of 80 cents to $1 per pound.

HENDERSON Washington, July 15— Iff)— Joseph Freeman, .a munitions manufacturer's Washington agent whoso salary skyrocketed irom $5,841 to 70,000 in four years, testified that he asked Rep. May (D-Ky) :;or business help "six or eight times." But Freeman told the Senate War Investigating Committee, searching into the wartime operations ot an Illinois munitions combine, that he "didn't know" whether May had ever visited his office. That response came after Chairman Mead (D-NY) cautioned him to "Ihink hard and long, and rcm ember that you arc under oath." The committee has received testimony that May, chairman of the House Military Committee, interceded with the War Department vo give contracts to the munitions combine. May has declared his activities were solely in the interest of the war effort and that he did not profit. The :combinc received wartime contracts amounting lo more than $78,000,000. • "Was the congresman cooperative?" inquired Mead. ' "Not always," said Freeman. •Under questioning, Freeman testified that sometimes he had to wait as much as a week in order to get. May's help on problems involving the Erie Basin and 'Batavia Metal -Products companies, two of the concerns in the combine. Before Freeman was called to the stand, Mead announced that the committee is examinins the la\y • Vas to bringing Congresman May before the committee by legal proces."

In the exchange of letters, Mead invited May .to testify:,.before the committee, and the Kentuckian re- piied in effect that he was willing to testify but on his own terms. Mead said "no further written informal invitations" will- b e sent May but "the invitation to appear stands." ......,.Mead went on to say that it was necessary for the committee to —nt.rol it sown proceedimgs, and "it would not be right to delegate tuat power ana thai, responsibility to a third party—least of all a witness before the committee." "I can a s s u re Congressman May, Mead added in a prepared statement, "that he will be given a full and fair opportunity to state any and all facts relevant io this matter. He will hot be permittee to' direct-our procedings.

The cabinet officer, just, returned from the four-power Foreign Ministers Conference at Paris, plans to address the nation by radio tonight at 3 p. m. (CST) over the mulual and ABC networks. Diplomatic authorities looked to that speech for ,a new estimate by Byrnes on whether the western powers and Russia arc developing greater or less cooperation. Also the secretary may emphasize his intention to press for another foreign ministers meeting later this summer lo tackle anew the problems of German and Austrian peace-making. Landing at Washington airport yesterday to receive a war greeting from President Truman, Byrnes summed up the 28-day Paris meeting this way for himself and nis colleagues, Senators Connally (D-Tex) and Vandenberg R-Mich: "I'm very happy to be home, and I know 1 speak for our delega* • on wnen 1 say we made some progress on the road back to t/eace."

Incident in the Life of a German Girl Who Learned Her Father Was Nice Fellow By HAL BOYLE Berlin, July 15 — t?!') ®— The American officer was late in arriving. Irma wailed for him nervously. II had been an hour since she and her parents had finished their even ing meal of polaloes and cabbage. It had been followed by a rare luxury — real coffee, supplied by Ihc American officer. Giving the coffee had meant nothing lo him, because he had never had to forego coii'co and other small luxuries Jong enough in his own lifetime lo know what Ihe gift meant lo Ihc German family. H made Irma squirm a little to recall how her mother had .squeezed the officer's hands in misty-eyed gratitude, and his uncomprehending embarrasmenl. Poor Mama- she had broken a great deal in Ihc lasl Iwo years. As the moments passed, Irma looked more and more uneasily al the .small cluck licking on Ihe man- lol. lie had been late before, but never this laic. She wondered idly again, as she had a hundred limes, wlial it would all come lo T- this relationship between her and the young American. Marriage-, she knew, was at. present uul of the question. And wliat c!.so was Ihere k-ft for her? She liked lo be with him but she never fell quite al case willi him as she had with .Cei man boys. Ho was gayer, quicker t-j laugh, kindlier, tnan anyone she had evt-r known. But sometimes the laughter evap- uraled in quick clouds of anger. Like lasl night, wlwn the yhad got slarted on thai foolish political argument. She had spuKcn passionately of her love for a strong new Germany, and ' • • • understood. Her falher talked lo Irma casually, trying to draw her inlo a discussion of Ihe Paris conference. "1 don't waul to .speak aboul il tonight, Daddy," she said. "But it will concern you for the. rest of your lifetime, child." "I know, Daddy, but I can't talk he hadn't quite about politics tonight." With a sign she didn't hear ,he laid aside his newspaper and shuffled over to the radio and switched it on. A "German waltz was playing. "This has old memories," he said. "Come, Irma, I will teach you how we danced the wait/. — your mother and I — before we bought your cradle." He look her in his arms and Ihey swirled slowly lo the music. "Three steps ahead," he said, "then turn, Ihcn lake three steps back. Now the regular lurn again. You Ihink maybe ils olcl-fashionod, but ask Mama whether il was fun." The music changed bul they kept on dancing, and tor a time Irma forgol lo look at the door. Afler a half-hour the father felt his heart liring, and Ihey sal down. Mama healed the coffee she had meant to save for brcakfasl, and brought oul Ihe .last half cup of salted peanuts. She looked out the window of the small third floor room at the full moon shining softly down on*the garden lawn that had once been theirs and said: "The moon always makes me think of old days." They talked then of Ihe times before the war, the parties they had had and the people who came lo them, scattered now for ever. The moon sank lower, Irma suddenly tell overwhelmingly weary. "I want lu go lo bed now," she said. Her father walked with her to her room, the room that had belonged to one of their maids. He pressed her hand and .looked al her through eyes that would never quarrel with her or fail to understand her. "Perhaps," he said gently, "the young American will come by tomorrow night." "Whether he does or doesn'l." said Irma, "I will never meet another man as nice as you, Mein Vater." And she shut the door quickly so he wouldn't see her tears. GI'sFailto Oust Leo From Committee Hot Springs, July 16 — Ml— Efforts of war veteran candidates for political office in Garland county to oust Hoi Springs Mayor Leo P. McLauehlin as chairman of the Garland County Democratic State Central Committee ended in laii- urc today. Circuit Judge Earl Witt, ruling on a mandamus petition filed by the GI forces, held that the mayor was entitled lo preside over Tuesdays meeting of the county committee which will select judges and clerks for the slate and county elections July 30. Judge Wilt said the slate law which forbids an office-holder from being a member of a central committee was not applicable lo McLaughlin because he was nol a county committee member. The decision said that Democratic party rules permit an outsider lo be named as county chairman and that courts should exercise "extreme caution" before setting aside party rules. The opinion, brought in a slate court, followed on Ihe heels of a ruling last week by Federal Judge John E. Miller that I,(i07 of poll lax receipts obtained throiiHh the cfforls of the McLaughin organi- za ( '.in, werp invalid. The mandamus action .againsl Mcj-iiuigmin was a sequence of Judge Miller's finding. Afler Circuit Judge Witt announced his decision Mayor Mc- I.aughlin who was in court, ad- drescd a statement, partly in the direction of Attorneys Nathan Whittington and C. Floyd Huff, counsel for the GI slate. v The mayor said he had examined the statutes and had consulted officials of the Democratic Stale Committee before accepting the county chairmanship and added: "If you have any idea that you are not going to be treated fairly at the meeting of the Garland County Ccnlral Committee tomorrow, gel out of your heads. The election laws will be observed." Whittington replied he was glad lo hear that statement from the mayor but said: "We can only judge by what has happened in the past." No Loan Soon for Russia Says Group Washington, July 16—Iff)—Russia probaoiy will have to wait until next year at least for a loan even a fraction of the size of the 3,750,000,000 credit Congress okayed Saturday for Britain. i The Kremlin reportedly is interested in borrowing about $1,000,- 000,000.from this country. Little has been heard of a Russian loan since the United States some months ago notified Moscow a willingness to discuss it — pro vided Kussia would agree to talk at the same time about her trade xplations with the Balkans • and other areas with the Soyie sphere of influence. Any such loan would have to come through the export - impor bank unlike the one to Britain which late Saturday won a 219 to 15 House vote »Jf approval, follow ing Senate clearance previously. Only President Truman's signa ture is needed before London cai start drawing on the money,, h return for which the British have promised to work for ureer work trade. The loan is to be repaid by the year 2001. Some officials be lieve the first money will be ad vanced this week. The British credit will come di rectly from the United State treasury, but any money Moscow might get would be from the ex port-import bank — a governmcn agency with considerably less thai $1,000,000,000 left in ils till.
