The Winona bill was a victim of a series of parliamentary maneuvers by Representative (Rev.) Clarence G. Langley, Red Wing, and Wilhelm Holm, Tyler (Lincoln which were directed principally at the "14" dice game bill In the opinion of City Representa- tive A. R. Lejk, who was able to save the bill for later action, the 30 on- sale license bill was "caught in the middle." The bill now Is at the bot- tom of the list of general orders and Francis Cardinal Spellman, center, Roman Catholic archbishop of New York, watches two seminary students dig graves this morning at Calvary cemetery In Queens, N.

Nonstop World Hop Factor in War By John M. Hlghtower today assigned the nonstop round-the- world flight of an American bomber a significant and highly dramatic place In the grand strategy of the cold war.

The Soviets sent a note to the American government saying the mission's work was indispensable ar.d Insisting on its right to stay. Members of the eight-man mission man army field hospital, burled since Two and a half years ago a some- what similar project was vetoed by the diplomats. Thus the changed attitude may be taken as a measure of the extent to which relations between Russia and the West have gone downhill. The decline started at the peak of hopes for east-west cooperation in peacemaking. Its present low point is characterized by the belief of the western powers that military readiness to strike back is now an absolute essential of peace. What V. S.

The Winona bill, as well as the bill which would legalize the "14" dice game and other games, came up on general 'orders yesterday after- noon. The "14" bill was approved by the house, as a committee of the whole, by a standing 51 to 50 vote. The Winona liquor bill was then also approved, but by an "aye" and "no" vote.
