Tonkawa. has resigned to accept an appointment as associ- ate professor of accounting at Arrr.s'.ror.R college, Berkeley, have them soon? If so, will they keep getting them? There's just one honest answer: Let's hope no. No one, inside or outside- government, can speak positively. We've heard rosy stories about those things before and were dis- appointed. We may be again. Who's to blame for the short- ages? The manufacturers? OPA? CPA (the civilian production ad- Or all three? It would take n congressional investigation to find out. Went Up, Not Down Last April OPA Doss Chester Bowles happily predicted men's clothing, generally, would drop five to six per cent in price. Instead, since then it's gone up at least five per cent. This figure is from the government's bureau of labor statistics. Take suits first. What caused the shortage in them? Here are some reasons: 1. By war's end, little weaving of men's suits was being done. 2. When the war ended, time rcconvcrting H. Army and navy men, rapid- ly discharged, needed suits. They bought what they could, put a dent in the stories' scanty sup- plies. Manufactures complained of OPA price controls, said they couldn't turn out suits at OPA prices. 5. Manufactures gave wage in- creases. Then they cried louder for better OPA prices. C. It seems apparent, govern- ment and clothing industry men say, that manufacturers hoarded some suits, keeping them for bet- ter OPA prices. What's The Remedy? What's the remedy? OPA eased up on prices last weekend, says this generally won't mean higher prices, just higher prices in some low- er in others. Meanwhile the government (CPA) turned over to the suit- makers enough cloth for medium-priced suits in the first three months of 1946. What's the result going to be?

It might be interesting to note Agreement Ends Strike Of GE Workers Involves Union Members in 16 States; 18 J Cent Boost Is Basis NEW YORK, March A wage boost of IB'.i cents nn hour formed the basis today of n u n i o n-managcment agreement settling the strike of CIO United Electrical Workers Union members in General Electric plants in 16 states. Formal ending of the walkout, which began Jnn. 15 and which has held up production of a large part of the nation's supply of in- dustrial and home electric appli- ances, hinged upon ratification of the pact by the union member- ship. Union leaders expressed the hope last night that this process would be completed in time to permit resumption of work Mon- day. But lenders of locals in Bridgeport, Conn., and Bloom- field, N. J., said that picketing of GE plants in those cities would continue until the agreement had been ratified. The wage increase will not be- come effective until it has been approved by the National Wage Stabilization Board, according to Albert J. Fitzgerald, US presi- dent, and E. D. Spiccr, company vice-president. General Electric and the union agreed there would be no dis- crimination against any employe. The wage increase, the joint statement said, will be for "all employes represented by but later it was said a similar in- crease would be given employes represented by other bargaining units. Several small AFL and in- lepcndcnt unions have organiza- .ions among General Electric em- ployes. U. Si Learns Three Russian Forces Are Moving In Iran J. E.

It's also the final date on which residents of Pontotoc county can apply for homestead tax exemp- tion and also file intangible and personal property assessments. A penalty of 10 per cent goes on the last two automatically if the taxpayer is delinquent about it. The U.

March 14, state highway commis- sion was in the dark today as to its future steps in carrying out the big 1946 road construction program, pending the next move by the federal public roads ad- ministration in fixing a cost ceil- ing on construction. The PRA has refused to con- cur in 13 Oklahoma projects, in- volving expenditure of about on grounds the contrac- tors' price were loo high in com- parison with 1040 construction rates. The contracts in question were granted by the commission fol- lowing receipt of bids Feb. 12 but were subject to PRA appro- val, since federal money was in- volved. All-State Jobs Go Ahead (Contracts on numerous pro- jects financed completely by state money, included in let- ting, have been lit and work will go ahead, since the PRA has no interest In them, Commission Vice-Chairman J. Dewey Cle- mens said. As to the future of the 194G federal-state road program, Cle- mens said, "we're just feeling out the situation now. trying to find some kind of guide to go by. We are liable to meet the same dif- ficulty in the future as now, un- less something is worked out." Construction Costs Involved The PRA, he said, is trying to work out a system of ceilings on construction. The administration order-with- hold temporarily concurrence on projects on which construction costs were much as 35 per cent higher than in pre-war days. Clemens said the next big state road letting is scheduled tenta- tively for April 23, but it is not possible to say yet how the PRA action will affect that letting. Most of the projects are on the list are farm-to-market roads and while they involve much federal money, there is no 1940 basis for comparison, he pointed out. The federal farm-to-market program was not underway in 1940. The 30-day period since bids were received on the questioned projects expires today. May Yet Grant Contracts Under the law, contracts must be let within 30 days after re- ceipt of bids, but Clements said that since the PRA action is be- yond tho control of the commis- sion, the state board may not yet be barred from granting the con- tracts if ultumate PRA approval is received. The PRA order was not confin- ed to the Oklahoma program a- lone, but was a nation-wide ac- tion in an effort to hold down construction Clements said. Costs reports in Texas, Louisi- ana and Arkansas were similar to those in Oklahoma, he added.

There is a couple on the East Central campus whose romance reads like a fantasy. Theirs was a "military" love affair culmina- ting in an international marriage in Algiers. Mr. and Mrs. Pete Richeson, both civilians again, have return- ed to college. Both expressed appreciation for the "swell job" done by the Red Cross overseas.

He said of. the Red Cross: "The Red Cross was very active where- ever the Army went. In Algiers the Red Cross established a big club which served ice cream, cof- fee, ?iot chocolate.
