''Scott is a fine player and has had a lot of experience," Barney declared. "He will fit into our system well at any spot.

Crowd Jeers Pearson in Georgia Talk By HAROLD FOREMAN 'Atlanta, Ga., July 22.—(UP) — Flanked by n eorsp of policemen, some 1.500 persons last night alternately cneered and booed commentator Drew Pearson as he declared that governor-nominate Eugene Talmadge nad promised to install a Ku Klux Klan official as head of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Pearson charged over a national network (ABC) that Talmadge had alleged to a KKK grand cyclops tnat "nil race pioulems will be left to the KLAN." Speaking from Georgia's capitol grounds. Pearson said that Tnl- madgc would appoint G r i\ \\ d Cyclps Sam .Roper of Klnvern 297 in Atlanta to head the GB1, a statement that drew cheers from the crowd that stood in a light rain during the broadcast. Gov. Ellis Arnall. who has a legal suit pending to revoke the Klan's charter in Georgia, was applauded when ne introduced Pearson but after the familiar campaign cry was heard — "we want Gene" and "Hooray for Talmadge." Arnall called Pearson a "valiant crusader Ior truth, 'tolerance, understanding and good will among men," and said there was no place in Georgia or America for "hate organizations." Although at times Pearson had to laise nis voice to spcatt above tne kin of cheers and jeors, police reported no incident occurring. Klan Grand Dragon Dr. Samuel Green of Atlanta had requested extra policemen at the broadcast. "The twentieth century carpetbagger is the Ku Klux Klan." Peaison declared, amid loud boos from Ihe crowd.. "Ku Klux Klanism and all the other isms which preach hate are not merely the business of the South—they are the business of the nation. And as with Hitler, the time to stamp them out is now.' He declared that as long as booKs are written and men read them, the Klan will be condemned for its doctrine of hate. He said he sopKc here ."despite threatening letters challenging my right to come to Atlanta and calling me a northern carpet bag- ber.' Pearson described Arnall, who invited him to speak from the capilol grounds, as one of the "greatest governors" in the country. Questions and Answers hcad- Detr-oit-born Paula Drew was well on her way to fame as a singer with tho Detroit Civic Opera before a talent scout got her name on an option. Now she's in Hollywood, soaking up sunshine while waiting for Universal Pictures to aim u camera at her. If you live on a farm and don't have telephone service now, you can be sure the telephone company is using every means to speed the day when you can have it. ' Extension and improvement of rural service was interrupted by the war, but plans to resume it went light ahead. Surveys were made, maps drawn, 1 thousands of farmers asked what kind of rural service they liked best, the result is a 14-million- dollar postwar program for improving and extending service to rural areas in the Southwest. Now the building job is under way again. Our goal by the end of the year is to have 40,000 new rural telephones in service. Within the next five years we expect to add 165,000. There is still much to be done, and it v/ill be some time before everyon* has service who wants it. But we are well on our way. • SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY faithfulness condones unfaithfulness itselt. That is fuyj.-y-minded reason intf. Nobody can now help what happened to marriages during I war years, ft is a l-;ict that many oi them y.'eiv scarred by unfaithfulness on ihc part of husband or wile. Bui divoicc won't change the fact - or guarantee a happy solution to the problem. All that divorce will do in many cases is bolster, momentarily, the pridn of the wronged husband or wile. Is the marriage can be saved by forgivenes-s, then what is so wrong about that? Surely a marriage is mriro important than pride— especially so when children arc involved. The judge was simply being a realist. Tne wartime unfaithfulness is done and past. But there is still the marriage. The judnc was simply asking the husband and wife to put their marriage ahead of their own in- juiy and to try to hold it together. Salvage What You Can That, certainly, is no condoning of unfaithfulness. It is saying that a patched-up marriage is oflcn belter than a broken marriage. And those are the only two choices left to the couple who discover Ih-ut their marriage has been damaged by unfaiHtlulness. They can either patch il up—or break it up. And of the two choices;, turely patching up the marriage is the more hoiior;iblc solution, and the better one for society a-j •* whole. ,—o League Leaders By The Awociatcd Prcs,s National League Batting — Hopp, Boston, .379; I-.lusial. c>t.

British Arrest Jews for Blast That Killed By OSGOOD CARUTHERS Jerusalem. July 23 --(/I 1 )—A police spokesman annouiHvd today the detention of about 20 Jews in , vonneclion with the terroristic bombing .Yesterday of the King David Hotel which left 08 persons dead or missing. The known dencl mounted to 4(i. Military rescue crews who voilccl in the debris of the hotel, the scat of British Army headquarters and the secretiiriat of the Palestine government, reported that 11 bodies had been recovered and seven others locntcd. Fifty persons wore unaccounted for! The police spokesman said thai, although most of the party which planted milk cans of explosives | wore Arab dress, all the evidence l indicated they were young Jews. •Eyewitnesses said the attackers I spoke Hebrew. The spokesman snid a search was "•going on right now m the old city of Jeruaicm." A truck and a taxi, both stolen, which were abandoned by ihc al- Guard units will be three times the strength of the old ones, and having a vast amount of equipment — all of which will require much hirer armories than than those which were built before the war. Hope, looking for a solution of <<cr Winter sports and public assembly problems, is mighty anxious to sec the armory project carried through — and on a scale adequate for a city of 10,00(1. Perhaps there could be some collaboration between the city and state or federal governments in the financing of a building large enough to be both an armory and a sports field house. -K -K -K By JAMES THRASHER Dr. Evatt and the Juggernaut Dr. Herbert Kvatt, Australia 1 !; $[:nistor of External Affairs, is perhaps the most vocal champion of small nations' rights in world affairs. As such, he is in somewhat the position of a lone man disputing the right of way with a juggernaut. Yet it is hard not to admire his courage, applaud his intentions, and wish him well. Dr. . Evatt bases his case on a self- evident fact repeatedly ignor- ,ecl by the great powers. This fact he restated in a radio address to 1 American listeners a few nights, tifio: "It, is a fallacy to suppose <a,it all knowledge and all wisdom '(fniffit reside at the center of military power." The Australian minister had the knowledge and wisdom to perceive the inherent danger of the veto in the formative days of the United Nations. In San Francisco, as be recalled in his radio speech, he warned that acceptance of the veto opened the way to its unrestricted use even in matters of relatively small importance. He sought vainly to get its use limited to the "extreme step" of economic or irfilitary sanctions against an aggressor. Now that his prophecy on Ihc veto's abuse has come true, he has served notice that he will bring the veto question before the UN General Assembly in September.' In the meantime, he will devote some of his considerable energy to an effoi t to keep the smaller nations from being pushed around or ignored at the Paris Peace Conference. Secretary of Slate Byrnes helper! Dr. Evatt's cause along by ^•lining Russia's agreement io let the conference determine its own nrg-ani/.ation and procedure. But thiil does not mean the big powers will not have their way in the end. Such an outcome is inevitable. Nevertheless, there is sense as well as justice in Dr. Evatt's cause. Dr. 1'Jviitl pointed out in his speech that the final United Nations agreement in San Francisco, with ;ill members having a voice in it, was a vast improvement over the original proposals drafted at Dumbarton Oaks and added to at Valta. Few will wiiiit to argue that point with him. And il is reasonable tbiit, as ho suggests, free participation by all nations represented at tho Paris Peace Conference can improve the Icss-llian- pcrfect treaties agreed on by the foreign ministers. As for the justice of the Australian's cause, his country and other small nations made a large proportionate contribution to victory. Being deficient in men and mater- jol, it was necessary that they : ;Afcr to their more powerful allies in •mailers of strategy and command. Hut that is no reason why this deference musl be taken for granted in time of peace, as il seems Io have been during the past .year. In Ihc intcicsl of fair dealing and for the sake of wise counsel, the small nations should at least be accorded the courteous assumption of sovereign equality at Paris. We hope that Dr. Kvatt continues his efforts to bring that •about. ./He will not be able to stop the juggernaut. But he might be able Io make il slow down, or even change its course a trifle. under floodlights during the night, and the officer in charge said "the job was less than half completed. Hospitals reported that !>0 persons were still undergoing treatment for injuries and that dozens of others had been treated for minor wounds. The Palestine government said the missing included 12 senior British officers of the government secretariat. .The names of British victims were being withhold pending notification of Iheir kin. Palestine civil service workers scheduled a 15-minute memorial of silence at noon today for the workers killed in the blast. A curfew imposed shortly after the explosion was lifted nt 5 a. m. except in the immediate area of the SI,000,000 hotel. Nevertheless, all Palestine continued tense. Resentment of both Arab ~"iirTd Jewish communities rose noticeably following publication in the Palestine post of the names of Arabs and Jews who were killed. "The crazed calculations of men who have broken with their cause have weighed the air with horror," said the post, which is the voice of official Xionism. The Jewish agency likewise expressed horror and denounced tht "gang of desperadoes" responsible.

But even legislators who think they sometimes know Ihe White House attitude in advance admit they arc puzzled about its fate Granling ihe states clear title to open oil-rich tidelands extending three miles or more into the ocean, the bill involves a long-standing controversy between Edwin W Pauiey and former Secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes.

But any such action would be a slap at Pauiey, California oil man who favors slate ownership. And it would be .a feather in the cap of piesidcnl since he resigned from Ickes, who hi's been critical of the the cabinet.

To Revive Plans of the Slale Military Department to revive Company A of Ihe 153rd Infantry, Arkansas National Guard, with a local pay roll of $38,059.31 n year, were outlined to a Hope audience at tho eUy hall last night by Lt. Col. Fiank Ingrain, personnel officer of Ihe state department. The group volccl to undertake formation of tho local Guard company and authorized the chairman, Roy Anderson, vice-president of Hope Chamber of Commerce, to appoint a committee to confer with Lt. Col. Ingram. Mr. Anderson appointed: Terrell Cornelius, Cli-'ford Franks, Ed Morris, Thomas Purvis, Charles A. Armitage and George Newborn. . Lt. Col. Ingram explained that it is planned to activate local Guard companies over the state by the end of August as part of the- 39th Division, covering Arkansas and Louisiana. Arkansas will have artillery headquarters, but divisional headquarters will go to Louisiana—the states reversing thr> honors after seven years, he said. Present plans call for a larye increase in National Guard strength over past standards, the speaxer continued. Formerly Ihe Arkansas National Guard mustered 4,000; but the new Guard will comprise 7 300. Hempslead county's Company A formerly had three officers and Gfi men; but the new Company A will be authorized for seven officers and 188 men. Tho unit must maintain 80 per cent of its enlisted strength and 100 per cent of its officer personnel in order to re- lain federal recognition, LI. Col Ingram cautioned. Mr. Cornelius introduced the motion which led to the local community's endorsement of the Guard revival. Major J. M. Duffic, veteran of the Guard nnd the European cam- pngn, recalled that National Guard work "used to mean a lot to the youngsters around here", and forecast its quick reorganization. Lt. Col. Ingram said a regular Army sergeant supervising the battalion for Ihc southwestern counties would be stationed permanently at Hope. LI. Col. Ingrani answered questions concerning thn probability of a new armory to bouse the new Guard unit by saying that while Hope certainly heeded an armory worse than any city in the state no funds arc now available for it. Funds may come from the federal government, or on a joint. I'et'cral-slale plan, or from the stale alone—a mailer for Ihe future, he concluded. Meanwhile Ihe local Committee wants to hear from candidates for officers qualified to organize the new company; and it will also be necessary to find a building suitable for armory purposes which can be rented in the near future.

Washington, .July 23 — (/P)— The House loclay rejected, 159 to 120, a molvin to strip from compromise OPA legislation all controls save those over rents. By FRANCIS M. LcMay "Washington, uly 23 —(/P)— OPA's opponents began a final drive in the House today to prevent a revival of price controls. Rep. Brown (R-Ohio) told the chamber that such a revival would "be a slop backward to scarcities ;inrl blackmarkcts." There was talk in the cloakrooms of an effort to whittle down the compromise legislation to a nati- Ihorily over rents, with all other controls eliminated. The Ohio members said he hoped the ^ House would have "the cour- :ige" to vole down the compromise bill. Administration leaders meanwhile voiced hope that OPA, dead for 23 days, would be reborn by midnight. An effort by Rep.

PRICE 5c COPY Redhead Says Officials of Combine Asked That She Be 'Hazy 7 in Testifying By JpHN W, HENDERSON Washington, July 23 —(/PI—Rccl- haircd Jean Bates, former secretary in ihc Washington office of a munitions combine, said today that Joseph Freeman and Henry Garsson had asked her to be "hazy' in testifying before the Senate War Investigating Committee. She testified that Freeman and Garsson, officials in the combine, had attempted to "play upon rny sympathy' when she met their request with a refusal to "perjure myself.' They were particularly anxious, she said, to prevent her from telling the committee, under oath, that she had seen Albert Jacobson, $9 975-a-year War Department consultant, in the combine's Washington office. . The conversation with her former employers, she relaled, took place on July 12 — the same day she appeared before an executive session of the committee to tell what she knew about the affairs of the combine. She said that Mrs. Freeman had called her away from her brother s birthday party to the Freeman home where she met both freeman -and Garsson. They asked her first what she had told the committee in private session, she said, and then quickly got to the point of Jacobson Judge Samuel Dickstein of the New .York Supremo Court testified 11 J l ,, was P ossib 'c that he had called the Washington office of the combine, bul only on a social matter. Washington, July 23 --(/PI— Chairman Mead (D-NY) of the Senate yvar Investigating Committee demanded today that the War Dc- partmenl "discipline" high-ranking army officers in the Garsson munitions case.

Mead's demand c a m o us the committee received official War Department records t .h ;•.'. travel orders, entitling them to ride at government expense with per diem allowances, had been issued for six officers Io allow them to be in New York at the time of Natalie Garsson's wedding. The investigation of the munitions woik of the Garsson brothers, Henry and Murray, took another turn with red-haired Jean Bates former secretary of the munitions makers' Washington office on the stand. Among the army officers .'isled in the War Department travel orders were Brig. Gen. Paul X. E-nglish, former head of the chemical warfare service's procurement division, and Maj. Gen. Aldcn H. Waitl, its present chief. The orders read ihal their presence in New iork was "necessary vor military service." English has since left active military duty. Presentation ot the records followed introduction of copies of records of the Hotel Pierre in New York, where the wedding was held Jan. 1944, showing that Murray Garsson, father of Natalie, had footed the hotel bills ior the officers. The committee ordered its investigators to obtain records on whether the government paid the per ciicm allowance to the officers on the strength of the travel allowances.

POWERS Washington, July 23 —(/P)—Prospective record-smashing crops of corn and wheat raised the possibility today of whiter bread, 'larger loaves and, perhaps, more beer, once the harvests are in At ihe same time the bumper crop outlook put pressure on government officials to decide soon whether to resume buying of grain for famine relief. v ';>,,..;° ; .--.'. An agriculture department official close to policy making'told a reporter it is possible there may be some easing of domestic restrictions on consumption of grains u the excellent crops prospects are realized. Present .Regulations: 1. Prevent ilour millers from producing for domestic demand more than 85 percent of their 1945 output. 2. Require extraction of 30 percent of wheat when flour is ground instead of the normal 72. 3 Cut bread loaf weights by 10 percent. 4. Restrict use of grain in production of alcoholic beverages When the OPA died June ,'io', the agriculture department immediately slopped purchasing meal and wheat ior foreign reliel. Th-c withdrawal was due in part to the desire not to add to demand at a lime when there were no ceilings, and in part to not knowing whether foreign governments would pay the higher costs. •Since then, tho department has been waiting U> ;;cc whether—and in what form--OPA would be put baclt ; nlo operation. In a special report yesterday, the department said Ihe indicated corn crop, based on July 15 prospects, would total 3,487,976,000 bushels. The present record was set in 1944 when .'-1,228,000,'JOO bushels were produced.
