At the same time, he told I' e senate banking committee, tho OPA has not used good judge- ment in handling price controls. "There is certainly a more reas- onable middle ground approach that can be found, which will be in the interests of all the citizens of the O'Neal said. Makes Recommendations He made these recommenda- tions to the committee, which is considering .legislation to extend price controls a year beyond June 30: 1. "The new price control legis lation should contain provisions for decontrolling prices. 2. "Price ceilings should be maintained on items in short supply, and price ceilings must be adjusted in order to bring forth necdod production. 3. "Consumer subsidies must be eliminated in the price con- trol program. On this point, said the farmers are demanding that the "federal treasury get out of ths grocery business." He calculated that if subsidies arc removed "personal income tnxeg could be reduced 17 per cent" as a result of savings to the government. 4. "We must take steps to cor- rect the basic causes of inflation through federal tax, budgetary, and credit policies so thiit in the near future detailed controls will not be necessary." Goss Writes About Ceilings From Albert Goss, muster oC the national grange, tnc commit- tee received ii statement saying: "There must be a recognition that inflation can be controlled by production imd thai (price) ceilings can not he hold below costs nnd still obtain pro- duction." Goss also-asked: 1. That ceilings be abandoned when supply equals or exceeds demand, assuming prospects ore for continued ample supply. 2. That rationing orders be in- voked in the event of short sup. plies. 3. That the subsidy payments which the government grants processors to holddown retail food prices be abandoned pro- gressively by the end of the year, with adjustment in price ceil- ings accordingly. 4. That no ceilings be fixed on farm products without the ap- proval of the secretary of agricul- ture. Three CIO witnesses urged continuance and strengthening of price controls. New Council Clash Due Over Japan TOKYO, April 26, UI-.-A Bri- tish request for information on the allied food policy in Japan developed today a strong possibi- lity of another clash between the allied four-power council and General MacArlhur.

The officer said three Okla- 'homa City high school drivers had been reprimanded recently for overloading their jeeps, which he said, carried from sev- en to 12 persons. ANADARKO, April 26, B.

Shipping Troubles at Manila MANILA, April 26.

OKEMAK, April Schools in the East Central con- ference will hold a conference track jneet in Okemah's Pecan bowl Friday. Rail Strike Seems Sure Unless Government Steps Into Situation and Moves To Head off Action CLEVELAND, April 26, Except for the possibility of fur- ther .government o r which there were wartime prece- appeared today lit- tle chance to head off a nation- wide walkout of nearly trainmen and engineers on May 18, halting rail traffic all over Hie country. Originally scheduled to begin March 11, the strike was re- scheduled yesterday as the two brotherhoods turned down the re- port of ti presidential fact-finding board. It could be forestalled if the nation's carries made concessions in conferences which are to open in Chicago Monday. But labor observers here, pending word on the carriers' attitude'toward the fact-finding report itself, doubt- ed that this development was likely. Further government action could take two courses, either seizure and operation of thj roads by federal authority, or a resumption of fact-finding efforts, through appointment of a new board or reconvening the old. A. F. Whitney, president of the trainmen, said yesterday "if the government calls us to Washing- ton, we'll go, bvt the strike order won't be called off until a satis- factory settlement is reached." Last night the three other on- erating brotherhoods announced they would join a move by the 15 non-operating unions to re- open their own case, for wage in- creases higher than' the 16 cents an hour boost awarded them by arbitration boards on April 3. Since last July 24 all of the rail unions have been seeking wage increases and changes in working rules. The trainmen and engineers, insisting on keep- ing the two issues together, de- clined arbitration, called their strike and saw their case go be- fore a fact-finding board. Students Strike, Doors Are Closed Spring Hill High at Pharoah Closed by Officials When Students Balky PHAROAH, Okln., April doors of Spring Hill high school were closed today utter a three-clay strike of stu- dents protesting the Pharoah school board's failure to renew the contract of Superintendent Vcrlin K. Abel. The board decided yesterday to close the school after unsuccess- fully urging students to cease blocking doorways. Hershel Crow, board member, said the ac- tion was taken to prevent "things from getting rough." About 50 of the school's '67 students par- ticipated in the strike which earlier had involved only peace- ful picketing; Crow said no plans had been made for graduating and promot- ing students although the end of the term was only two weeks away. SEVEN BRITISH SOLDIERS KILLED AT TEL AVIV TEL AVIV, April Parts of Southern Tel Aviv were placed under curfew restrictions today as police conducted a city- wide search for members of an i armed band which killed seven 1 British soldiers last night in an I attack on a military car park. An -official announcement said roads in the area had been mined by the attackers prior to .the raid, 'in wfiich 12 British soldiers and 10 in- jured. Accounts of the attack said the raiders, including a number of girls, ir.ade simultaneous as- saults from several directions hurling grenades and placing i mines along the parked vehicles. At Least 44 Counted Dead In Passenger Wreck on Thursday Osmena Loses Late Voting Concedes Defeat, Charges Philippine Election Is 'Being Stolen' By JOHN WARD MANILA, April gio Osmena's headquarters to- night virtually conceded his de- feat for th? Philippines presiden- cy with a charge that "the. elec- tion is being stolen and apparent- ly nothing can be done about it." A highly placed source at Ma- lacanan palace, who declined use of his name, said the chances of President Osmena defeating Sen- ate Leader Manuel Roxas "are very slender." "Roxas supporters terrorized the voters in at least three pro- vinces, Tayabas, -Batangas and Neuva he said. "It seems clear now that Roxas' charges that there would "be intimidation and vote falsification were only to cover up those very practices by his own supporters." Repeated attempts to contact Roxas for comment have failed. His sister said he is unreachable. As far as can be determined he is not at his residence and has not been since election eye, when he went into hiding. His secretary said then that Roxas went into seclusion after hearing rumors of a kidnap plot against him. The Associated Press' tabula- tion of votes at 6 p. m., from 748 of the commonwealth's 238 precincts, gave Roxas Osmena Roxas thus had increased his margin by votes in the last 53 precincts reporting. Hodgson Presents Compromise Offer On Spanish Probe By FRANCIS W. CARPENTER NEW. April The United Nations Security council today received a new pro- posal from Australia that a five- man sub-committee be named to inquire into the Spanish question and. then deferred further con- sideration of the case until 3 p. m. E.D.T. Monday. The council then adjourned at a. m. Immediately after Lt.-Col. W. R. Hodgson, of Australia, present- ed his new draft of a resolution calling for a five-man sub-com- mittee, Rafael de la Colina, Mex- ican delegate, suggested that a vote be delayed until Monday to permit time to study the proposal and allow the delegates to get new instructions. Hodgson told the council h3 had been successful in his at- tempts to find a compromise with the French delegate, Henri Bon- net, and the Polish delegate, Dr. Oscar Lange. The resolution stated speci- fically that it was the duty of the council and not the subcom- mittee decide what should be done about Franco Spain. Hodgson pointed out, however, that the proposal gave, the sub- committee wide powers to decide where and how the inquiry is to be made. The new Hodgson proposal be- gan by saying that the council noted the "moral condemnation" of Franco' Spain made in the security council debate here, at the United Nations meeting in San Francisco and at the gen- eral assembly meeting in Lon- don. I As the delegates met at a. m. (EST) to try to find a com- j mon ground to act on the Span- ish question, the council chamb- j er was more than half empty. I The Brazilian delegate, Dr. Pcc'.i-o Leao Velloso, who was in a taxicab accident last night, ar- rived with patches covering scratches on his face. The Hodg- son move today was the result of overnight efforts to arrive at I a formula that might enable the j delegates for once to render a unanimous decision but Russia has come out against any inquiry or investigation. Jap Communists Make Complaints TOKYO, April 26, communist complaints that they were being railroaded out of par- ticipation in choice of a new-pre- mier, Japan's four-party commit- tee adjourned its second meeting today without tangible progress toward solving the nation's ling- ering political crisis. At the height of the two-hour session, Kyuichi Tokuda, secre- tary-ger.eral of the communist j party, shouted "the next cabinet! is being sold on the black mar- I ket." j Meanwhile Ichiro Kawar.o liberal party whip, and Tetsu Kaiayama, secretary-general of the social democrats, scheduled their sixth conference this after- noon, continuing their search for a basis of cooperation between these two parties. Resigned Pre- mier Shidehara's progressive par- ty remained silent and aloof. Some of 125 Injured Still in Critical Condition; Engineer Says His Train Was Traveling Too Fast, Hit Stalled Train NAPERVILLE, 111., April rescue workers today counted at least 44 dead in a terrific rear-end collision of the Burlington railroad's westbound fast Exposi- tion Flyer and Advance Flyer yesterday. Of 125 persons injured when the Exposition Flyer, speed- ing at more than 60 miles an hour toward San Francisco, rammed the stopped Advance Flyer, 31 remained in hos- pitals, some in critical condition. All but seven of the dead had been identified. The engineer of the Exposition Flyer, who Burlington railroad of- ficials said had adequate warn- ing that the preceding train had. stopped, was charged with man- slaughter. Dupage county offi- cials said, however, this was a technicality to make certain the engineer would appear at an in- Austria New it Cause Russia Poesn't Want Any Discussion of Austrian Sit- uation by Ministers Now By LOUIS NEVIN PARIS, April 26, Big Four foreign ministers met again this afternoon to seek agreements on European peace treaties amid reports that Russia would blooc any American effort to secure discussion of the Austrian situa- tion. An American informant con- firmed that the Russian yester- day opposed placing Austria on the agenda. The Russians, how- ever, raised no objection to dis- cussion of French demands for detachment of the Ruhr and Rhineland from Germany, this source said. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes conferred with British Foreign Secretary' Ernest Bevin more than an hour before the second day of the negotiations started. Reparations Up Early A source in conference circles said that the Russians told the foreign ministers of the United States, Great Britain and France yesterday that they realized-the seriousness of the Austrian situa- tion and felt it needed careful study before being discussed and that' they did not believe such a study could be completed in timi for Jiscussion at the present con- ference. It was understood that the gen- eral reparations question for European countries other than Germany would be taken up as the first, point on the agenda. Both Bevin and Byrnes declined comment as they enferged from their conference in the American hotel to attend a luncheon given for the foreign ministers by French President Felix Gouin. quest and that no evidence of laxity had been uncovered. Left Chicago at Same Time The crash of the two steel car, diesel-powered trains occurred just 31 minutes after they left Chicago's Union Station simul- taneously at p. m. CST. On separate tracks, but after a few- miles moved onto a single center track, with the Advance Flyer, which ran on a faster schedule, in the lead. The Advance Flyer, carrying 150 to 200 passengers in nine coaches, was bound for Oma- ha and Lincoln, Nebr. The Ex- position Flyer, made up of 11 coaches and carrying 175 to 200 persons, was headed for San Francisco. Complete Confusion First At first there was complete confusion. Huge, shining passen- ger coaches were strewn across torn tracks, some in tangled, wcckagc. The cries of the dying came mostly from the rear coach ot the Advance Flyer, where passengers were trapped. Others groped in bewilderment for escape from the mass steel wreckage. Eleven coaches were overturn- ed or left tho rails, six on the Advance Fiver and five on the Exposition Flyer. Slate Attorney Lee of Du Pace county said a wariwnt charging manslaughter had been issued for W. M. Blaine, 68, Galesburg, 111., engineer the Exposition Flyer. Daniels said that Blaine, for more than 43 years railroad man, told him that just the col- lision Fireman E. M. Crayton warned him he was going to strike the Advance Flyer. He said Crayton apparently jumped be-. fore the crash and was killed. Blaino, however, stayed at his throttle as his train sped toward the stalled Advance Flyer. The Russia's decision to a 11 o w j Exposition Flyer's silver nose France to participate in discus- sions in Balkan treaties created a fresh atmosphere of optimism as the four foreign ministers buckled down to their task 'of writing a new peace for Europe. Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotoy, unexpectedly reversing a decision he had announced last year at the London fcteign min- isters' conference, said yesterday he had no objection to French ob- servers attending discussions of treaties with Finland. the Balkans and The United States also will sit in without a vote on the discus- sions on Finland, which original- ly were restricted to Britain and Russia. Delegates to the conference, most of whom had come to Paris with few optimistic hopes, said that Molotov's action might indi- cate that Moscow would prove to be more conciliatory on other is- never know." sues. This new' optimism was tem- pered somewhat, however, by the fact that Molotov was reported to have objected strenuously yes- plowed into the rear coach and for a fleeting moment appeared to stagger in the air, tear through the roof, then plunge with terri- fic force upon the floor and trucks of the car. Ripped Through Car Its force was not spent, and it continued on through three quar- ters of the length of the rear coach, ripping its top, spreading it wide, and inflicting death and in- jury to most of its occupants. Blaine suffered cuts on the head and was taken to an Au- rora hospital. Daniels quoted the engineer as saying "we were going too and that his train was traveling 85 miles an hour when he no- ticed the first of two warning signals. The engineer applied the brakes at once, Daniels said Blaine related, but "it was too late. How came out alive, I'll terday to proposals by U. S. Sec- retary of States James F. Byrnes and French. Foreign Minister Georges Bidault concerning Aus- tria, the Ruhr Rhineland. The asked basin and the United States reportedly the ministers to draft a treaty assuring independence for Austria, and France requested the internationalization of the Ruhr and the detachment of the Rhine- land Germany.
