Awarded for 112 Miles of Work By Howard Dobson Washington fed eralaid highway program fourth largest in the country this year strode ahead rapdily in Septem ber as contracts were awarded for 112 miles of construction The public roads administration said Saturday the new building will cost 8587000 and the govern ment will supply of it The Iowa program for building 781 miles of new highways during the current fiscal year is topped only by the work mapped for Kansas Oklahoma and Texas However five states have had more mileage approved by the public roads administration for the matching of state and federal funds The five are Kansas Min nesota Missouri Oklahoma and Texas Congress appropriated 5500000 000 last spring for the government to spend on helping states build roads The matching is on a 5050 basis though the exact proportion may vary from one specific con tract to another The current program went into effect with the beginning of the new fiscal year July 1 and was not affected by President Tru mans order reducing all other government spending for con struction The reason for this a PRA of ficial said Saturday is that when allocations are made for individual states they are regarded as con tracts with the states The money remains available unless the state does not claim it during the fiscal year by putting up matching funds from its own treasury Iowa has planned worth of road building for this year and has been set aside by the PRA for it Contracts have been awarded for 259 miles at a total cost of The federal share is So far this year 58 miles have been completed at a cost o The government paid of it Place Strict Curfew on Jerusalem Sections Jerusalem offi cials imposed a strict house cur p m to a m daily Jewish sections of Jerusalem Saturday because of a

Evangelistic Service P M REV C B BELL Pastor Freddy Finds Beef Stew in Red Embassy By FREDERICK C OTHMAN United Press Staff Correspondent Washington UR The brass bound doors of the Soviet embassy swung open and I was smacked immediately in the smeller by an odor long since missing in my life Beet stew for the ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary was bubbliii somewhere deep in side the somewhat mysterious mansion of the Russian diplomats stew with plenty of onions for the lonorable Nikolai V Nokivpv There was a little man with an accent at the door another in the shadows at the side a 3rd at the loot of the marble staircase The press conference the 3rd one said was upstairs The perfume of the ambassa dors stew followed me up the red velvet stair treads which were a little threadbare and to the door of the conference room Here another odor as of turkey feath ers smouldering drowned out the stew The undersecretaries of the un dersecretaries were puffing Egyp ian cigarets as they lugged in burled walnut chairs with apple green upholstery for the crush ot reporters Seldom do the Russians meet the press when they do they draw a crowd The room was small Its walls were lined with brocaded crimson satin the fireplace of livercol ored marble was empty the cry stal chandelier could have stood some polishing and a couple of extra bulbs Reporters crammed every inch of the chamber and even leaned on the golden ladies carved nakedly on the sides of an enormous green marble clock At 11 a m this timepiece started to clang almost like a trolley car and in walked a nervous young man with sandy hair thickrimmed eyeglasses a maroon necktie and another one of those strongsmelling cigarets He introduced himself spelling his name carefully as Michael S Vavilov the ambassadors press attache He said that with permission of the press hed prefer to read his statements in English rather than in Russian This was a small pleasantry smilingly he began to read the Soviet governments pro test over our governments treat ment of some Russian visitors His smile soon faded Ill skip the details and the fancy diplomatic words Seems that the Soviet government sent some opera singers playwrights novelists composers and military heroes here last month for a Slav conference in New York The justice department said theyd have to register as agents of for eign powers They went home in sulted Not sore you understand Just hurt They wondered Vavilov said why we gave em the bums rush Here wed been trying to make friends with the Russians and theyd been trying to make friends with us Moscow had invited numerous American leaders on visits in cluding the head lady of the Fed eration of Womens Clubs church men andbusiness chiefs He didnt exactly put it the way I am put ting it but he indicated Russia treated them not like prospective criminals but as honored guests Welcomed them with hugs kisses vodka and sayiar Somewhere in the interior of the embassy came the muffled wails of a baby If he heard this Vavilov ignored it He answered every question politely On the face of it Id say he put up a good case for Russian courtesy as com pared with our justice depart ments The stew was nearly done when the press conference ended Smelled better than ever Im hun gry still Estimate 10000 lowans Will Be Discharged Under New Draft Order Des Moines the basis of selective service induction fig ures for Iowa for 1945 it has been estimated as many as 10000 lowans might be affected by the order to release all 1945 inductees from the army by Jan 1 During 1945 a total of 16785 lowans were inducted into the service state selective service headquarters reported Of this number 5514 should have com pleted by now their 18 months service which drafted men now are
