In restoring meat controls, the board authorized OPA to put back into effect the same subsidies that were applied to meat on June 30.

Although the farm parity ratio j or 50 to mostly 1.0 Ohigher than increased about six per cent dur ing the first 15 days after price controls expired, the spokesman noted that there was still a "com- t'orlable cushion" 'between livestock ceilings and parity levels on June ,10. That cushion probably can absorb any subsequent increases in the farms' cost of living. To ease the transition iatno a subsidy tree era beginning, by order of Congress, on April 1, the board decreed that the subsidy payments must be cut in half not later than Jan. 10. In addition to meat, soy beans and cotton seed, the board' returned price controls to flaxseed and by-product grain feeds.

I am sure you will all agree that meat has increased unreasonably." Following is the board's report n: Grains — estimated supplies appear adequate to cover demands. Production of corn, oats, barley and sorghum grains should almost equal the previous record year. An all-time record wheat crop is in prospect. Though prices of food and feed grains rise sharply and to "unreasonable levels" in July, tney are dropping rapidly to more reasonable levels. Dairy products—continued short supplies are anticipated.

The foreign ministry admission- contained in a note dispatched last night to U. S. Ambassador Richard C.

The Yugoslav note, which termed Monda"'s incident a "regrettable accident," made no reference to the U.

It said two members of the crew parachuted from the plane forced down Mpnday, but added : "There are signs that un fortunately victims fell in this, ac? cident."

N. Harkncss and three Texarkana, Texas, aldermen, principals in the expose of an alleged conspiracy to open Spruce street here, resigned at a special meeting of the city council last night. The aldermen have been indicted by the Bowie county grand jury on charges of accepting money for affirmative votes on the Snrucc street question. They are Albert McWilliams, Harry L. Everett, Jr., and Lee Tallcy. Mayor Hardkncss, who :'irst brought the charges into the open by attacking the aldermen and who asked for a grand jury investigation, had promised to resign if the aldermen also would quit. Resignations of all four officials had been recommended by the grand- jury. The resignations became effective today but the officials will remain in office until their successors arc selected in a special election Sept. 21. Trial of the aldermen is slated for early September. In resigning, the aldermen issued a statement that their action was not an "admission of guilt." They said they felt that "in our present state of mind we cannot give ihe city's affairs the attention they deserve." rays.

Contact Spreads Disease Spread of the common contagious diseases results from intimate contact between sick and well Individuals. Tuberculosis is essentially a family disease because the contagion is spread from the sick to the well by way of the air, and not because of an inherent weakness in the family itself. The family of a tuberculosis person retains a tendency to develop the disease in later life, but this fact is due, in all probability, to the greater exposure the members experienced when the disease first entered their home. The number of germs in the ai' at any one time has no special significance, but the kind they arc is important. Germs do not grow or multiply in the air, but their spores arc resistant. For the most part, air bacteria are harrnlcss, with the exception of those in the immediate vicinity of the sick. Ordinary dust in Ihc air is not a factor in disease, although it can destroy property. Household dust is a cause of disease in susceptible persons who are allergic lo things about the house carried by the dust. In a factory, silica and asbestos may be inhaled by workers and sct.llc in thoir lungs, causing ill health. Carelessness Kills .Except for that caused by intimate exposure In homes 01 places of employment, the spread of disease in public results from the carelessness of those who have the infection in mild form and do not take to their beds or of carriers (that is, persons who harboi the virus or germ without harm to themselves, yet spread the dis ease). The spread of air-borne diseases indoors may be prevented by the use ot ultra-violet light in a smal area (over a surgical opcraling table, for example), or by the suspension of chemicals in the ai in droplet form.
