Poge Six HOPE STAK, HO PI, ARKANSAS Paulette Goddard Romantic Film Opens 3-Day Play af Rialto Saturday, July 20, 1946 One of the most romantic tales -ever penned, "Kitty," Paramount^ latest Mitchell Leison production, 'comes Sunday to the Ralito Theatre with Paulette Goddard in thc title .role co-starred with Ray Milland. Adapted from Rosamonci Mar snails' best-seller of the same name, the film also features Patric Knowles, Reginald Owen, Cecil Kellaway, Constance Collier and Sara Allgood. Set against the magnificiant panorama of Eighteenth Century London with all its elegance and intrigue, this lavishly, produced film boasts some of the most eye-catcheing costumes ever screened. It also has the bc-n- efit of a script written by prn- 'ducer Karl Tunberg and Dnrrell 'Ware. From all reports, this is an unusually brilliant JOD—sophisticated and daring. - "Kitty 1 'is a wicked and witty -yarn which pokes fun at the somewhat effete, but utterly charming petty nobility who lived off the fat of the court in parisitic content- 'rnent. As a penniless inp'-atiatinq "scoundrel, Ray Milland fits neat- ,ly into this category. The picture does not attempt to do anything ,but amuse the audience—and this, .according to prevehvers, is what succeeds in doing. • With Paulette Goddard playing the title role, "Kitty" is the story •of a wilful waif who rises from rags to riches when Sir Thomas Gainsborough paints her portrait and exhibits it at the Royal Aca- ,demy. The portrait attracts the attention of the Duke of Malmun- ster who sets out to meet her—object, matrimony. Before said meet ing can take place, "Kitty," an illiterate cockney, is alternately coached and frightened into beeom Starred in Witty' Here Sunday Opens Sunday at Rialto Paulctte Godchird in the title role of of her ardent suitors in thc 'Kitty," wins o\i.r R.n Milljiid, one ' lavish Paramount picture. ing the lady all royalty thinks she is. The Pygmalion process of trans- form-antion provides, it is said, some of the most amusing sequences in thc film. Milland is back in comedy, after doing a stunning job in "The Lost Weekend," serious study of chronic alcoholism. Once again, he teams up with Paulette Goddard and it is safe to say the pop- alar combo will prove as success- :ul now as it has in the past. They first clicked in Cecil B. DcMille's 'Reap The Wild Wind," followed by "The Lady Has Plans" and 'The Crystal Ball." If reports are right. "Kitty" is joing to keep the movie-goers chuckling, even after the lights go on. The elements that make our bodes strong come from the soil; to stay healthy we must keep our soil icalthy. Deep Water Is Considered Best Place to Fish By The Associated Press Ttie best place to fish this hot weather is in deep water and the best time is at night, says the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Game wardens throughout the state report the most promising conditions are in the lower reaches of rivers and in lakes where the water has not become too low and clear. Best results are being obtained by anglers who are fly fishing at night with luminous baits. Among the better fishing spots in Arkansas this weekend are' Bayou DCS Arc, Old River Slipper Lake, Cash River. Spring Army Denies Union 'Busting' Charges Washington, July 13 — (/P)— The army denied "union busting" charges today in the wake of an announcement thai it had fired five civilian employes at Hie Aberdeen, Md., proving ground —- scene of many top secret tests. The War Department said the five, who included physicists and chemists, were discliargcd "in the interest of national security." It declined to go into details. The fact that alt five arc officers of Local 250 of the newly formed CIO Public Workers of Amecica, it said, is "a coincidence and a reflection on the union's discretion in permitting them to serve." Abram Flaxor. national president of the union who was in Washington attending a meeting, told ti reporter the action was "an obvious union busting device." Harry Spector, president r.t the Aberdeen local and one of those dismissed, said: "This is strictly a union matter." Members of a UPWA delegation which tried vainly to protest to Secretary of War Patterson said the union was carrying on an organization drive at Aberdeen and contended the discharge of Uic local's officers was more than a coincidence.

Awfed B. Quinton, Jr., commander of the proving- grounds, where secret tests are carried out on rockets and other guided missiles as well as on guns, tanks and vehicles. Quinton acted under a law which empowers the secretaries of war and navy to remove "in the interest of national defense" any army or navy employe for subversive ac- tivitcs. Specific reasons for tho discharges were not announced. The live, removed irom Ihcir jobs June 2?., were described by J. H. Mason, Patterson's assistant in charge of industrial relations, as "not mere routine employes." He declined however to describe them as scientists. They were identified by Parks as Harry and Irving Spcctor, brothers, Abraha m Kotelchuek, Phil Weiss and Rhcabel Mendelsohn, the hitter a woman. Steps Token to Holt Abandonment of Rail Line Harrison.

'Freedom to Work' Group Opens Arkansas Office Little Rock, July 19 —(/P)— Thc Christian American Association of Houston, Texas, which sponsored Arkansas' anti-closed shop or "freedom to work" amendment in 194-!. has opened an office here to direct political activilies in Uic 1946 elections. Vance Muse, secretary-treasurer of thc organization, said here today that the Christian American's political activities were in line with its plan to combat "radical" labor throughout the south. Muse, who announced he would direct the association's campaign in Arkansas, disclosed a list of candidates whose defeat Christian American is seeking on grounds that they arc friendly to labor and opposed in trie 194!) legislative session an enabling act for thc anti- closed hop amendment. Name on this purge list intiudc these state legislators: F. (Bam) Wiggins, Wynne: Russell Turnipseed, Hackclt: Marshall M. Little, Benton; H. H. Pickering, Hamburg, and Merle B. Smith, Pine Bluff. Muse said the association had prepared an open letters to Wiggins for distribution to Cross county voters pointing out his "contributions to the cuasc of radical labor." "Our only mission in Arkansas is to give information to thc voters," Muse said. When our soils arc gone, we too must go unless we find some way to feed on raw rock or its equivalent. Double Licking Stiff Setback for Memphis By The Associated Press Nashville clowned the high-riding Memphis Chicks in both ends of a doublchcatlcr last night, 4-1 and 6-3, to halt the Chicks' bid for the Southern Association leadership now held by Atlanta. The twin loss, resulting from two fine pitching performances by visiting hurlcrs Leo Twardy and Al Trcichcl, cut the Chicks' second- place margin over Chattanooga to a mere three percentage points . Atlanta, downing Mobile, 7-,3, lengthened its lead to eight full games, as Chattanooga picked up ground on Memphis with its third straight win over Little Rock, 2-1. Twardy hurled a three-hitter in the first game for his 13th victory, and Trcichcl held the Chicks to live while striking out 13 in the nightcap. Memphis had climbed from I'lflli to second place with 20 victories and nine defeats during the past few weeks. Shelby Kinney racked up his 14th victory at Mobile, on seven hits, as Bill Goodman, the Cracker outfielder just out of the navy, continued to pound the ball. Tho Crackers, however, continued their orgy of errors, with five last night. At New Orleans, the Pelicans got off to a flying start with three runs in the first inning and whipped Birmineham, 4-2. Dick Callahan held tho Barons scoreless on five hits until the ninth, but had to have help from Bill Rogers when the visitors rallied. Today's schedule: Mobile at New Orleans (Only game scheduled).

Star Announces increase in Subscription Prices Effective Monday, August 5 Effective Monday, August 5, thc subscription rates of The Star will be advanced approximately one-third. Old and new rates for city and suburban subscribers are as follows: Per week Per month Per year Old Rate . lijc .. O r ic $0.5'J New Rate 20c 85 c $8.no The purpose of this announcement is to give subscribers two weeks' notice of Hie change in rates. No new yearly subscriptions in the city, and no new mail subscriptions for any term, will be written except at the new rales, cifcclivc- immediately. The determining fnclor in the fixing of newspaper subscription prices is thc cost of newsprint. In tlm last 10 years the cost of paper purchased by The Star, delivered in car lots, has risen from $40 (193G) lo $71. The newspaper has bought this year 58 tons, all ot it costing $71 a ton. The price on future deliveries was advanced last week by $G.!iO. putlinr; the replacement cost close to $80—twice what it was 10 yi-ars ago. The $71 price was an OPA authorization, and all the newsprint The Star now holds was bought under OPA management. The new $0.80 increase posted in mid-July was the result of the Canadian government revaluing its dollar upward, from E)0 per e'-'iit of the U. S. dollar to par. This reduced the relative value of American newspaper dollars paid to Canadian newsprint manufacturers—and the mid-July price increase followed. Although The Star's newsprint, come from Lufkin. Texas, all mills and newspapers operate on a contract whose price is determined by tho actions of certain large Canadian and Northern U. S. mills— and these mills having posted the July increase our own supplier lias followed suit. Newsprint is produced from pulpvvood. a division of the lumber industry. And, like lumber, newsprint had successive price increases posled during thc war—-ind they ;:re still coining at us. The Star absorbed those increases—until they became prohibitive. Which is thc reason for this plain talk today. By JAMES THRASHER Pinch-Hitter This being a government of and by the people, with free speech and free press mot to mention free advice), we are devoting Ihe space below to Ihe proposal of a , visitor who dropped in yeslcrday | on with a few suggestions' on how ' , Uiis country should conduct its V»rcign relations. "What this country needs." said ho, taking a pull on his 11-cent cigar, "is John L. Lewis lo bat for Jimmy Byrnes at that foreign ministers' conference." The visitor blinitod solemnly through his glasses until Uie laughter had subsided, and added, "ft isn't as silly as it sounds." II? then went on to give his reasons, which were substantially as fol.lows: ij'.Thc administrative setup of our [jjig labor unions resembles the ^Russian government more closely fthan does our government iiv Washington. Therefore. Mr. Lewis, labor leader, should understand thc Hussian viewpoint better than does Mr. Byrnes, who has only been a lawyer, senator, Supreme Court justice and Secretary of Stale. Mr. Molotov is a skillful bar- gainer. He comes to a conference demanding in the name of righteousness and justice far more tnan he ever expects to get. Then he makes a great show of magnanimity in granting concessions while lie receives just what he wanted in the first place. That is precisely the technique that Mr. Lewis uses. Mr. Molotov is one of the worlds' toughest men to face across a conference table, hut so is Mr. Lewis. Mr. Molotov is backed \by a tremendous country with tremendous resomces, and by a government! with a tremendous determination' to gel what il wants. Mr. Lewis has Ihe same delcrminalion, though vastly less hacking. Still, whether you like hii; technique or .vpt, he usually manages to come 'but lop dog in his annual tussle with the operators anil/or the government. Fin Ihcrmore, Mr. Lewis is impressive.'. He has magnificent eyebrows. He has the capacity and the gourmet's palate In do ample jus- lice lo a Russian banquet. He can quote Shakespeare by the yard, and orate in. the stately measures of an Old Testament prophecy. As an -added altraclinn, Mr. Lewis would team up well with Mr. Bevin. Looking at their im- ^isinvt girlh, Mr. Molotov would get a tangible idea of what Western solidarity means. He might, even forget for the moment "that he represented the world's biggest country, and be moved to concession by Ihe sheer presence of so much bulk across the table from him. Thus did our-visitor (though not a union man himself) enlarge upon Mr. Lewis' qualifications as the paiticular man for the particular job. We asked if he were suggesting ijficit Mr. Truman fire Mr. Byrne;;, who seemed to be doing pretty well in a most difficult assignment. No, thc visitor didn't go quite thai far. What he had in mind for Mr. Lewis was just a pinch-hilling job. Let him negotiate for his countiy as well 1 as he docs for his miners, and a lot of international problems would vanish. That, v. e pointed oul, would involve serious difficulties of protocol ;.(cl prestige, among other things. But. ar, our visitor rose to right wing of the hotel. "The secretariat appeared to nave suffered '""''<' '-"avilv 'him a'-'vy hcadciuar- lers. The military offices were on Lie upper .uyois. Peuesinaiis were permiltcd lo m o v e in certain areas, bill no Iraffic was allowed lha streets except vehicles of troops and police. Hundreds of truckloads of troops and Bren carriers moved Vhrough the city. h A military officer, who say the attack, said a small bomb first ox- plodecl a block from the hotel breaking windows. This was cvi-1 dent.ly a diversion. ' Seconds later, a burst from a ! tpmmygun ripped out windows oil the secretariat. A .few minutes I later, a Ircmcndous explosion blew Ihe corner of the held—largest in Palestine—into rubble. "I saw dead men lying on thc streets, o n e eyewitness said "There were several ATS (British Army Women's Auxiliary) girlii covered with blood from' head to foot. One man was blown clear across tne street and his body hit the side of the YMCA building " The YMCA building, approximately 100 yards from the hotel was blotched with a bloodstain one foot wide, but apparently was undamaged. The telephone operator .al Iho h otel said that 15 minutes before the explosion, she received an anonymous call saying the hold was to be blown up. ohc was advised to flee.

Le MAY Washington, July 22 — (ff)~ A House-Senate conference commitec decided Ioday that, in the revival of OPA, price ceilings can not be restored before Aug. 20 oh meat, poultry, eggs, milk and a list of other baaic foods. Whether these foods can be controlled at all again will be Icfl to Ihe determination of a three-man board with higher authority than The conference committee completed the writing of the compromise OPA measure and tossed the issue again directly -^o ihe House and Senate for a snowdown tomorrow. hiarlier Senalc^Democralic Leader Barkley of Kentucky, predicted al Ihe White House that tne House and Senate would approve thc compromise promptly and expressed hope Mr. Truman will sign it . Thc compromise bill was approved by 11 of the 14 Senale and House conferees who wrote it. The three declining to sign it were Senators Milliken (R-ColoK Rep. Woicotl R-Mich )and Smith (R- Ohio. Barkley told reporters al thc White House he did not know whether Mr. Truman .would sign the compromise revival bill. The Senate Democratic leader, accompanied by Democralic chiefs of boln houses, said ,Mr. Truman was not asked whether he would put his signature to the proposal which would greatly atcr price control procedure. "And he did not loll us whether he would," Barkley told reporters. Thc president, he said, is having the legislalion analyzed. OPA Ad- minislralor Paul Porter will • see The report presumably Js in- londed as a sign-or-velo "guids lo the cnief executive. However,' one official in a position to know said Mr. Truman already has indicated a decision lo approve the measure, "reluctantly." One of the biggest headaches for the administration is ihe likelihood of al least another four- week holiday from price ceilings on meals, dairy products, grains, cottonseed and soybeans and their food and feed products. Final determination whether these items shall be brought back under control August 20 is .left lo a three-man board with power to overrule OPA on both de-control and re-control decisions. This board also will decide whether ceilings shall be re-irn- posed on poultry, eggs, iood and feed products made irom them, tobacco and its products and petroleum and its products. Paul Porter, OPA administrator, told newsmen "we are now working on an analysis of the bill's economic consequences xor submission to President Truman." Porter would not say whether he would recommend another veto. Chairman Spence (D-Ky) of the House Banking Committee, leader in the administration's battle for a Ttrong OPA, commented: "I don't ininii ii is a very enecitve Dill, bul it is Ihe besl we can do. I believe Ihe president will sign il as Iho last recourse." The House-Senate conference commitlee which finally agreed on the compromise Saturday night after a i'ive-day deadlock set another meeting lor today to resolve differences of opinion on just what had been done. Major provisions of the compromise OPA bill as il i-moriied Irom ihe Senate-House committee include; 1. Revival of price control, in modified form, until June 30, 1947, La Paz, Bolivia, July 22 —(IP)— Revolutionary leaders promised immcdiale restoration of civil liberties today after seizing ihe government in a bloody four-day uprising climaxed by ihe assassination yesterday of President Gual- bcrto Villarrocl. , Slrecl fighting, in which approximately 2,000 persons were reported killed or wounded, abated after the revolutionists paraded through La Paz with thc batlered, serni- nudc. body of the president draped over an army tame. Earlier, the president's body had been hanged from a lamp post in front of his palace. At the conclusion 01 tne parade, the bod'/ was returned to the same lama post and strung\ap again along with thc bodies of three of his trusted' sublalenis. Crowds, passed silently by the improvised gallows in the .shadow of Ihe bullet-pocked palace, where the new government met to name temporary officials and to set in motion machinery for what it described as a democratic general election. -Kleclric and telephone service, disrupted for the last several days was restored as the city began to return to normal. Many members of Villarroel's military regime perished with thpir leader, but most of the casualties in thc street fighting were revolutionists. Some members of the army and a few of Villarroel's lieutenants managed to escape the angry civilian mobs and flee to the hills It was not immediately determined whether they planned a countermove on the capital. The new government is composed of university professors and students, labor union groups and several prominent figures inclad- ing the dean of ihe La Pa/, superior court. First official act of the revolutionary regime, which calls itself the "inslilutional government," was to issue a communique calling for national unity and restoration of "popular liberties," which were suspended under Villarroel's "strong man" rule. The communique also said that all political prisoners would be Continued on Page Two ie Is Announced Washington, July 22 —(/P)— The Agriculture Department today announced a $314,000,000 subsidy program for 1947 designed to' encourage farmers to rebuild their soil alter the Heavy wartime production drain. The program was authorized by Congress under the AAA larm act of 19.5Y. Farmers may become eligible for payments from the fund by adopting soil and water conservation practices recommended by state AAA farmer comir-Htees, technical experts of the department, and by local farmer com- millces.

Barkley conferred with the president along with Senator McKellar (D-Tenn), Speaker Rayburn and House Democratic Leader McCormack Mass). Asserting he had abandoned hope of Congress quitting at the end of this week, Barkley said "I'm afraid we will have to go into the middle of next week." In addition to OPA legislation, Barkley said Congress still must act on terminal leave pay bill, a railroad retirement bill, and an avialion treaty. In addition, he continued, the long range housing legislation passed by the Senate is still pend ing in the House. Replying to a question, Barkley said Ihe president did not mention farm security legislation also pend ing on capitol hill. Another key measure, on which the Senate "arid" H0use"' 1 mu~st se'ek agreement is that for controlling atomic energy. Democratic Leader McCormack of Massachusetts tentatively scheduled House action on ihe battered OPA bill for Tuesday. By mid-v.'oek members of the two branches hope to get together .on major differences over atomic energy legislation. The House passed the Senate's McMahon bill for atomic controls after a bitler fight Saturday, but threw into it more than fifty amendments, several highly controversial. The Senate meanwhile went back lo ils dispiriled debale over a bill to give ihe slales undisputed title to tidelands and those beneath navigable waters within stale boundaries. The chamber lale Saturday agreed lo vote .on the issue al 3 p. m. (ESTj ioday. While the atom and pricn control measures were deemed the most important items oh the unfinished business docket, they have competition for the designation of most controversial. Still to be acted on by the House is a congressional reorganization bill. Although stripped of many provisions voted by the Senate, it still contains such louchy clauses as pay raises and pensions for members of Congress. Il is booked for a House vote Thursday.

Il was based on a detailed study of the conduct, of the war in the Pacific. Japan's lack of coordination at' :op levels contributed substnatially lo her disastrous decision to em- Dark on a career of conquest and to ultimate defeat, the survey group found. ''•-.'.. Its findings and recommendations were contained in a bulky report released without comment by the White House after the administration dropped its fight for action on the merger at this session of Congress. Chairman' 1 Thomas CD- Utah) of the Senate Military Committee, said however he will introduce a new unificalion measure at the next session. < The survey commission reported : that "bureaucratic rivalry", between Japan's army and :iavy impeded war planning, proper em ployment of air power, development of adequate logistics r.r.d efficient use of her economic resources. The existence of such joint agencies as the supreme war council "served mainly to hide the fact lhat real unity, integration, and coordination were conspicuously lacking," the survey said. In. any reorganization of American defenses, however, the survey! recommended that the air forces be broadened into a co-equal service with added responsibilities ior rocket and other defense. It proposed that this service should be given primary responsibility for passive and active de- lense against long range attack-on our cities, industries and other substantial resources; for strategic attack, whether by airplane or guided missile; and for all air units other than, carrier, air and such land-based air units as can be more effective as component carts oi the army or navy." Some passive defense measures currently are being shaped by the" army and navy munitions board. All three services are working on guided missiles, and the army air forces and the navy are competing for control of some phases of land- based air power. The survey commission, headed by. Franklin D'-Oilier..... former no- tionat commaTider of the A~mericzr^ Legion, made these other major recommendations: . • i-. T i' Research and . development. If the United States is not to be lorced to hasty and inadequate" mobilization every time the threat 9: aggression arises in the world, it is essential that in the field of military weapons and tactics she' be technically not merely abreast of, but actually ahead of- any potential aggressor, xxx Expenditures for research and develonment in the order of one billion dollar san- nually may be required." . 2. Intelligence, "Greater centra- izalion lo be provided by the national intelligence authority xxx the present lack of recognized responsibility for intelligence work by the various operating organizations and the present shortage of trained and competent intelligence personnel give cause, for alarm and .squire correction. Pl • 3. Armed strength as a force-for peace, "'ihe best %vay to win a war is to prevent it irom occurHng " but "prevention of war will hot be furtnered by n e g 1 e c t of strength, xxx. As one of "the great powers we must be prepared to act in defense of law and to do our snare in assuring that other nations Jive up-to 'iheir covenant." The development of the atomic bomb and other new weapons and the "unique" nature of the Pacific war prompted the survey commission to caution .in applying .the wars lessons'to the iiiture, but it ventured this advice; 1. Control of the air is of even, gi eater signincance since the arrival of the atom bomb and "the most intense effort must be '' devoted to perfecting'defensive air control both by day and nighi.'"' 2. Our vulnerability to Blitzkrieg attack by rockets and other weapons must be materially reduce'd by peacetime preparation of a system of shelters, air raid warnings, ; i.<s;i iuv evacuation of cities : >''.-' '•::.:.. ?naterials and '-.
