By JACK O'BRIAN New York—Thc description of Dorothy Shay as a "Park Ave. Hillbilly," has come true. This pretty little gal from Jacksonville, Kla., wears the finest and most furiously fashionable creations of the besl couturiers while chanting song about thc modes and manners of the rootin', tootin', shootin' citizens of the southern hills in one of thc major cafe delights of the present saloon society season. Dorothy has just started an engagement at Iho Starlight Roof of the Waldorf-Astoria on Park Avenue, her most rcsDlendcnt on- gagcmenl to dale. Her opening was a glamorous success. Hundreds of Manhattan's .saloon society were present, and she was accorded the sort of reception usually reserved for income tax em- ployes come to announce you don't owe as much as vou'd expected. Those after-dark denizens thereupon included in their possibly shallow bul certainly wide cafe enthusiasms this pretty singer of hillbilly tunes, right alongside such fashionable regulars of HIP midnight circuit as Hildcgnrde, Joe K. Lewis, thc Dancing Do Marcos and Jane Froman. Whatever "u- f-ultnral merits of such mass fashionable approval, it does pay on in Healthy sums.

Washington By JANE EADS Washington — More and more Central American countries arc relaxing regulations governing -tourists trom the United States. There is much less red tape. Visitors from this country are prone to go to Puerto Rico without passports. American visitors are provided on their arrival there with an identification card good for a 10- day stay. I can be renewed for an additional 10 days if desired. Mexico issues a tourist card for six months. Similar cards are issued by El Salvador i'or seven days ;Honduras, [our days; Costa Rica, 30 days. Guatemala .has just announced issuance of tourist cards but has not yet set a time limit. Legislation providing for the issuance of tourist cards has been passed by Nicaragua and Venezuela but has not yet been put into effect.

Fins littln Shay gal- credits her recent wide success to ihe boys in uniform. Until she was exposed to GI audiences she was just another, although more than moderately successful, singer of popular songs. She had left Jacksonville to start her singing career in Pittsburgh with Paul Pendarvis' orchestra. When the future of such band vocalizing seemed to offer very litllc to gratify an expanding ambition. Dorothy went to California, studied a bit a t the Pasadena Playhouse and chanted ihe usual torch songs in local restaurants. New York being thc expected --.ext slop, she headed for Broadway and had lo go al radio, on a sus"- taming NBC program. Then she wcnl overseas There she discovered the GIs, while certainly interested in hearing the latest, and oldest, popular soups and seeing the pretty face and whistloable Shay figure, also had more than a slight interest in comedy . wanderings, she had lo sta,rt .-ill over again, practically from ihe bottom. She auditioned with some 20 Oothers for n network program and came out on top. At that point her own name o f 31ms was changed lo Shay so Ihat :ui possibility remained o f confusing Dorothy with Ginny. After several radio engagements, she hit hoi- stride with successful engagements al the St. Regis Hotel, tho Bol- mont-Plaza's Glass Hat and La Martinique, later working in thc more fashionable hotel dancing rooms and supper clubs i n thc hinterlands. She definitely has arrived today and is making records and radio appearances and taidng screen tests. All because a bunch of soldiers in Europe like the way she sang about hillbillies.

She did. however, have a small collection, all in her head, of hillbilly tunes which she taught as well and quickly a s she could to her accompanist. She sang them in a low-cut evening gown. Somehow, thc idea of such bucolic song content from a young lady so exquisitely upholstered gave just thc added comedy touch her act needed. She continued thc overseas circuit to great success and while intent on her USO duties, polished up her material and added as much more as she could find which suited both her style and thc eager aural appetites of the service guys.

Replacement commission house buying was stimulated by announcement that ceilings on cotton textiles will be increased Hi per cent in August. The May 1947 position at lenged, although the Arkansas leg islauire in 1945 passed an act sep arating stale and federal primaries as a means of allowing for such challenges. Sharing interest with the three stalewide races was Ihe challenge by a group of iormer servicemen of Ihc Garland county-Hot Springs administration. The leader of the opposition to the administration headed by Hot Springs' colorful Mayor Leo McLaughlin was Sidney McMath who held a slight lead in his own bid for prosecuting attorney. His ticket-mates, however, apparently were defeated, principally by a lopheavy vole polled by the administration in the Hot Springs city precincts. In 56 of the GO precincts in the "••ospculor's restrict composed of Garland and Montgomery counties McMath had 2,297 votes and incumbent Curtis Ridgway 2,102. o Among some primitive peoples it was the custom to bury sick people to cure them.

"But Ihc Implementation of the experts' plan as a whole depends upon United Stales cooperr.'ion," said Acting Prime Minister Herbert Morrison and Dominions Secretary Lord Addison in simultaneous announcements in the Houses of Commons and Lords. "We had hoped before the debate to receive from President Truman, his acceptance," they said, "but we understand thai he has decided x x x lo discuss il in detail with the U. S. Ecpert dele- gallon, who are returning io Washington for that purpose." Britain accepted the fp'"--area proposal i!or troubled, Bomb-torn Palestine "as a basis for negola- tion," they said. If United States assistance in carrying out the plan is not forthcoming "we shall have to reconsider thc position, particularly as regards the economic and ::inanci- al implications," both declared, adding pointedly: "The -situalion in Palestine will not block delay." The ; four -areas, il was announced, would include an" Arab province and a Jewish province and each "would have Ihe powei to limit the number and determine the qualification of persons who might wish to take up permanent I'OSldenC'p in lllnir lori'ilni'inc " their -o- territories. .. , * •• " v W"- . 1-IH- LU I.

Senate Denies Limited Debate on Poll Tax Bill Washington, July 31 —(/I 1 )— The Senate declined today io limit debate on the anti-poll tax bill. The decision was generally interprelec as killing the legislation i'or this session. By a vote of 39 ayes and 33 nays, far short of the required margin, the senators rejected a motion to apr|.y cloture, sometimes called tho "gag rule." A two-thirds favorable vole of members present and voting whould have been rc- quirccl to put the seldom-used rule into effect. Russia Is Beneficiary of Peace Treaties By MEL MOST -i-aris, July 31 — (/p, —Russia emerged today as the principal beneficiary of proposed peace treaties Finland which would and beaten strip Italy, Germany's Balkan satellites of their military power, redraw their frontiers and charge them at least a .billion dollars in reparations. The treaty drafts presented to the zl-nation peace conference lasl night by the Big Four agreed upon substantial territorial increases for the Soviet Union, upon payment of 900,000,000 in reparations to .Russia and let Russia's domination of eastern Europe intacl. . In certain disputed sections the treaty drafts, however, of it , , seemed apparent that the western powers intend lo Iry lo wniltlc down some of the Russian gains in the cast, at least in economic matters. The united Stales and Britain want the vital Danube river opened to trade on a basis of complete equality, while Russia wants nothing said in any of the treaties about freedom of the Danube. The navigation on three .western members of the Big Four also want "most favored nation' 'status for all Allied nations in commercial dealings with the :dve defeated nations, while Russia would exempt all fields closed to private enterprise and would make exceptions for ;ieighboring stales. Under Ihe proposed treaties — which would end the stale of war in Europe except 'or Germany and which would offer the five nations the United Nations — none of the defeated countries would be allowed any bombing planes or submarines and would be required to guarantee fundamental human rights and lo bar Fascist activity. The military machines of all would be reduced to a vestige of power, and the treaty drafts directed the five beaten countries lo cooperate for the purpose of insuring against any German rearmament in the future. The atom bomb was not mentioned in the trealy drafts, but rocket bombs would be outlawed. The proposed treaties — 285 pages in length — offered a peace to Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Finland and Hungary which was held in tone and largely so in demands, except for reparations :ant* ujjon Italy's empire and border real estate. The drafts offered little vital change in the troubled stains quo — excepl for withdrawal oJ Russian occupation troops from the Balkans and forces from Italy. Russia alone of British-American the major powers would win reparations — from Italy, 300,000,000 each from Finland and Romania and 20,000,000 from Hungary. To the last award, however, the United Slalcs has entered some unpublished reservations, represented by a half-page scissored out of the trealy draft Bulgaria'-s reparations have not been settled and the Italian figure is a partial one. Hungary would be required to pay another 100,000,000 to Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia. Territorial clauses in the five drafts also held advantage for Russia. • o In 1626, New York had 200 inhabitants. over each multiple of :J25.

Olson, former secretary to Rep. Coffee (D-Wash), told the Senate War Investigating Committee today that Eivind Anderson, Tacoma contractor, attempted to "hlaek- mail" him into withdrawing last January as a candidate for mayor of Tacoma. Olson testified that Anderson had told him that unless he withdrew from the primary race in which the contractor was also entered, Anderson "would use the check to injure me in some way in the March election." Thc witness' reference was to a $2,500 check which Anderson gave to Olson in 1941 while thc letter was serving as Coffee's secretary Anderson has testified that the check was in payment for services he expected to receive from Coffee and Olson in connection with a defense contract. Coffee tolrt tho committee yesterday he received the money as a "campaign gift." Olson said today that Anderson called him to his home last January 19 or 20 "ostensibly • tot the purpose of obtaining further aid" relative to payments which Anderson believed were due 'him from thc War Department on a hospital construction contract. Anderson, Olson testified, then brought the conversation around to the check issued five years previously and asked Olson to withdraw from the race, leaving the contractor as the only candidate with a Scandanavian 'name in a community of-voters predominantly of Scandinavian descent. "He attempted to blackmail me into withdrawing from the mayor's race," Olson declared. He added, that he declined to withdraw,' telling Anderson' that "there was nothing wrong" about the 'payment and "if you want •'to use it go ahead and shoot the works." Anderson, Olson said, did not make thc transaction public until about a week after the primary election and a week preceding the runoff. Anderson was eliminated in the primary, running last, the witness said, while Olson lost out in the final to C. V. Fawcett. Thc story of the payment, Olson continued, was given to the press and radio in a statcmnet by retiring Mayor Harry P. Cain. Olson identified Cain as the present Wash- ' ington Republican nominee 'or the Senate. Cain based witness said, Anderson. The contrary his statement, on an affidavit the by stories of Coffee and Anderson were already in thc committee, record. Anderson contended he paid the money for services he said he expected to receive from Olson and Coffee in connection with a $936,517 army hosoital contract. Anderson declared flatly that he did not even discuss a campaign contribution with Olson or Coffee. Coffee, on the other hand, denied thai Ihere had ever been a discussion of payment for services by either Olson or himself. The lawmaker asserted thai Anderson had given Olson the $2,500 check as art Continued on Page Two - o -McMath Wins are Hot Springs, July 31 —Wi—Sidney McMath, leader of the war veteran slate opposing thc administration of Hot Springs Mayor J-«o P.

That was for circuit judge .McMath's law partner, Clyde Brown. former army colonel, trailed veteran Circuit Judge Earl Witt by only 224 votes.wilh three small precincts in Montgomery county missing. While thc administration candidates for sheriff and other county officers held substantial leads vhc complete figures from Garland county included many Hot Springs votes challenged by Ihe war veteran slale. The Gl's indicated votes would be contested ; in the second and :'ifth city wards and they may ask that the entire second and fifth city wards and they may ask that 1he entire second ward, McLaughlin stronghold, be thrown out. The tabulated vote in the judicial district, with three precincts missing showed: Prosecutor: Ridgway. 3.375; Mc- Malh, 3.906; Hiram Tucker, 39.
