"They should say so and not make charges that can- not be backed up with facts. "If Black market prices are be- ing paid for meat, then it must be selling at more than ceiling prices on the retail market, and I don't believe the average retail- er of meat is dishonest any more than the average meat packer." The packers have charged that eastern slaughter houses were paying over-ceiling prices for live cattle in midwest markets, and thus diverting beef into "il- legitimate channels." Kline said a large number of s m a 11, independent slaughter houses had been established in eastern states which have been licensed by the U. S. department of agriculture. Her explained that these small packers were licensed to grade their own beef wiiilc large mid- tllewcst packers arc federally in- spccted and the government in- spectors grade the beef. This may result, he explained, n the eastern packers paying the op, or premium prices for cattle which under federal inspection would grade only for lower-grade commercial or utility beef. The packers' problem is with the agriculture department, not the OPA, Kline said.

Train Makes Special Stop The train made a special stop at Rialto last midnight to permit Minnie Rose and her wheel chair to be put aboard. Thc trip to St. Louis for medi- cal treatment was the climax to a story book tale that had its beginning almost a year ago.

He found out that she was crippled. Became Railroad Mascot The word was passed down thc I. C. line. She became thc rail- road's mascot and seldom a day went past that some of the crew- men didn't throw her dolls, can- dy or toys. They even bought her a wheelchair. Then the railroad men and Shriners decided to send the girl to St. Louis for treatment. Ar- rangements were made for last night's midnight rendezvous with the Chickasaw Limited. May Ask Now For Draff For One More Year Patterson, Eisenhower Agree on Revised Con- tinuance, No Induction Of Fathers WASHINGTON. Mar. Dwight D. Eisenhower's advocacy of an indefinite draft law extension was modified today by Secretary of War Robert Pat- terson, who said Eisenhower now wants a one-year extension. Patterson told thc. house mili- tary committee, before which he and Eisenhower testified yester- day, that he and thc chief of staff low are agreed on a one-year continuance of the law, which ex- )ires May 15. Patterson said he and Eisen- hower were in full agreement hat length of service under cx- ension legislation should be lim- ted to 18 months, that fathers hould not bo inducted, and that ill fathers now in uniform should ic released by late summer. He is willing, Patterson said, to ccept a limitation that thc in- duction be held to me between 8 and 25, both inclusive. Members of both senate and ouse military committees ap- carcd to share a general feeling nat selective service should be ept aliv" beyond its May 15 cx- iration date. But that was no learcut agreement on how long Byrnes Testifies The two committees returned to the subject after long testi- of it in secret ses- by: 1. Secretary of State Byrnes, who was reported by members to have told the senate committee that those charged with responsi- bility for the nation's security are alarmed lest there not be enough new soldiers and sailors to re- place those now entitled to come home. 2. Secretary of thc Navy For- restal, quoted as telling the sen- ators that the navy could not hope to get the men it needs if selective service dies. 3. Secretary of War Patterson, who asked both house and senate committees to rccommed a one- year extension. Eisenhower Outlines Defense 4. General of thc Army Dwight D. Eisenhower, who told the house group that the world situ- ation is such that thc draft should be extended, not for a year but indefinitely.

Summing up the testimony af- ter the closed senate committee session, Acting Chairman Austin (R-Vt) gravely told reporters it was to this effect: "That the international situa- tion is such as to make more clear the necessity of extending thc selective service act." Impressive Case Senator Bridges (R-NH) des- cribed thc witnesses as having nrnspntnri "a pretty impressive i presented case." Most members of the house committee, .however, balked at Euenhower's request for indefin- ite extension and displayed little sympathy for Patterson's idea of a one year extension. Members who usually can tell the turn in the house group said that barring a change in senti- ment an extension of not more than nine months, or until March 1 at thc outside, is the best bet. Many s_.id the continuation might be even shorter. ---------------------K-------------------- What Stalin Told AP Man Text of Questions And Answers Between Corres- pondent Gilmorc and Stalin LONDON. March following is text of a ques- ion and answer interview with 'rime Minister Stalin by Associ- itccl Press Correspondent Eddy Tilmore as broadcast by the Mos- ow radio today: The correspondent of the As- ociated Press, Mr. Gilmoro, ask- ed Prime Minister Stnlin the fol- lowing questions connected with the international situation. Below we give Mr. Gilmorc's questions and Stalin's replies. Question: What significance do you attribute to the United Na- tions organization as a means of preserving international peace? Answer: I attribute great sig- nificance to thc United Nations organization, since it is a serious instrument for thc preservation of peace and international secur- ity. The strength of this interna- tional organization consists in the fact that it is based on the prin- ciple of the equality of righ of states and not on the principles of the domination of some states over others. Can Play Positive Role If the United Nations organiza- tion succeeds in continuing to preserve the principle of equal rights, it will undoubtedly play a great positive role in the cause of guaranteeing universal peace and security: Question: What in your opinion has caused the present fear of war felt by many people in many countries? Answer: I am convinced that neither the nations nor their arm- ies are striving for a new war. They want peace and are striving for a guarantee of peace. That means that the present fear of war is caused not from that quar- ter. What To Do Now Question: What should the gov- ernment of the freedom-loving countries now do for tho pres. vation of peace and order in the "They want Stalin said in tno interview as broadcast from Moscow, "and are striving for a guarantee of peace." "That Stalin added, "that the present fear of war is caused not from that quarter. I think that the present fear of war is caused by the activities of certain political groups who oc- cupy themselves with propaganda for a new war and who are there- by sowing the seeds of discord and lack of confidence." UNO "Serious Instrument" Moscow said AP Correspondent Eddy Gilmorc asked Stalin what significance he attributed to the United Nations as a means of pre- serving international peace, and Stalin replied: "I attribute great significance to the United Nations organiza- tion since it is a serious instru- ment for the preservation 'of peace and international security. "The strength of this interna- tional organization consists in the fact that it is based on the prin- ciple of the equality of the rights of states and not on the principles of the domination of some states over others. "If thc United Nations organi- zation succeeds in continuing to preserve the principle of equal rights, it will undoubtedly play a great, positive role in the cause of guar.-mteeing universal peace and security."
