Robert S. Kerr has indicated it is not out of the question that he might call a special session of the legislature although the housing situation at state colleges does not warrant such action.  Kerr, answering a telegram of Rep. J. H. Arrington, Stillwater, requesting a special session be called to aid in solving the college housing problem, said the •tote regents for higher education have funds which could be used for housing if they chose to spend the money that way.  , 7 ng the flrst  public indication that a special session is not entirely ruled out this year, he said:    ‘circumstances may arise  that w ould make it wise or even necessary for a special session to be called this year, in which event I would gladly call the legislature into session without a moment s hesitation.

Of Staff Hat to Say About Army Demobilization  WASHINGTON. Jan. ll. l.T>— Disgruntled GI’s overseas and equally concerned congressmen called today for “Ike” to speak out plainly on the army’s trouble-i ne d demoblization program. The great prestige which Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower enjoys both with the army rank and file as with Capitol Hill lawmakers evidently made them want to hear what he had to say as cheif of staff.  And it was pretty plain they were not interested in listening to anyone else first.  Demonstrating GI’s in Frankfurt. Germany, last night chanted we want Ike.” That was after they booed and hissed the name Of Gen. Joseph T. McNarnev. Eisenhowers successor as U S commander in Germany.  Simultaneously on Capitol Hill talk grew* of a joint meeting of congress, possibly next Tuesday, to hear Eisenhower discuss the army s demobilization slow-down order of last week, as well as the revised discharged policy now in preparation. A senate military subcommittee also was assigned to look into the picture.  Eisenhower, now on an official visit to Canada, is not due back at his Pentagon office until the xirst of next week.

Jan , ll. <.FL_Twenty minutes after Western Electric Installation Workers called off 12 gftofo /rom the Southwestern Bell Telephone company today, employes of the Telephone company returned to work.  It tfas estimated that approximately 30 employes, mostly women, were standing outside the picket lines when the pickets retired in the face of a court order.  Heinz, Shawnee county district judge, previously had is-sued a temporary injunction under the 1943 Kansas labor law restraining Western Electric Workers from picketing the Telephone company offices in “Topeka and vicinity.”  Sheriff Elb Beal notified the pickets of the order and told them they must either cease picketing or face charges of contempt of court. Two of the pickets retired immediately. Ten others left shortly afterward and work at the Telephone company was resumed.   4 .

Situation Began Wednesday  The telephone situation followed a strike Wednesday of 8,000 members of the Association of Communications Equipment Workers find! who install West-•prn Electric equipment in Bell Telephone exchanges. They originally demanded a $8 a week pay increase but later cut that to an undisclosed amount.  The union got the pledge of many other telephone union workers that they would not cross picket lines. In addition to long distance serv ice, today a action also curtailed manual operations in many sections. Dial telephones were not affected, but will be when they need repairs.
