Claude McMillan, one of the members of the board of free- holders elected from the'ward of which 'Washington district is a part, presided and after outlining the basis for the proposed changes answered questions or directed them to Dr. C. F. Spenc- er, chairman of the board. Again, as in preceding neigh- borhood meetings, the freehold- er board members made it -plain that the proposed charter provi- sions do NOT have anything to do with a raise in water rates, and does NOT set what is to be done'about the airport, but would install a revised plea of city government, more efficient and more democratic. They implied rather definitely that such talk, which has been tied up with charter discussions by some citizens, is an effort to confuse the matter, discredit tha proposed change to a council- manager form of city government and so affect the vote ,that will be .called in a few weeks. They also explained, how the proposals are drawn up to keeo out. as far as is "humanly pos- petty and clique politics. The board now goes into a series of smaller meetings to de- cide on final wording of some of the provisions and approval of the charter revision in .the final form in which it will be submit- ted to the voters soon, probably in June. Sixth Mystery Death on List Body of Man Found On Railroad Tracks Near Tex- arkana Dead When Placed There TEXARKANA, Ark., May 7, mutilated body of a man was discovered on railroad tracks near Tcxarkana early to- day and.a' coroner said the death was suspected as the Texarjcana area's sixth slaying in six weeks. Dr. Frank C. Engler, coroner of Little River county, Ark., said the man was identified from a social security card as Earl Cliff Mc- Spadden. The man also carried a registration card with the U.S. employment office nt Shreveport, La., dated May 6, 1946. A first report said the social security card, No. 147-09-4323, was issued in Kansas, but the Shreveport U.S.E.S. office said the series of numbers indicated it was issued in Baltimore, Md. The Shreveport office said the man had filed a "courtesy claim" at Shreveport yesterday, but had failed to leave his home'address. XX Engler said his coronei-'s jury, etc., picking up fourth Graf Etigler'said that his coroner's jury returned a verdict that the man came' to his death at the hands of persons unknown, and that he was dead before the body was placed on the tracks. The body was found about 6 a. m. on tracks of the Kansas City Southern railroad, about sixteen miles north of Texarkaiia. A freight train had passed about a. m. The body was discovered as officers in this area were search- ing for the person who shot Virgil Starks to death as Starks sat in his living room listening to the radio Friday night. Starks'wife was wounded by the'same assail- ant. His slaying occured in Mil- ler county, Ark., also near Texar- kana. No developments were report- ed in the search for Starks' slay- er. Injustice To Tiger, Slayer Maynard Russell Bagged 750-Pounder in Burma Anyway, it was a tiger, and it was killed in Burma by Lt. May- nard Russell. First inf9rmation on the weight of the animal was 375 pounds. That didn't do justice to the mag- nificence of the huge striped kitty, for he weighed 750 pounds. Then, it slipped through in 'the story Sunday that the animal weighed 75 pounds (the deck of the headline said 375, to make it all a bit more 1 And; to complete the confusion, Russell was on- the right of the picture and not on the left. So it you still have that Sunday front page, insert 750 pounds for the 375 and the 75 pound figures, and move the reference to the Ada'man to the right, from the left, and you'll have it all straight.'

REIMS, May 7, city of Reims, where one year ago to- day Col. Gen. Gustav Jodl scratched his name on a docu- I ment which sent the European i phase of. World War II into the 'archives of history, observed the first anniversary of the sur.en- der loo few sold- i iers in town to hold a parade. The citizens and soldiers ob- served the day mainly by visiting the surrender room in the "Little Red the formee "war room" "of supreme head- quarters, allied expeditionary forces, which has become a French- National shrine and a place where visitors may absoro a bit of the atmosphere of historical events which occureJ in it. The room has been preserved as it was at the moment "of the German capitulation. The war maps are there, the weather maps, railway 'maps and supply maps. "A "lay-on" iard lists air force missions of the following day. There is a chart of allied casualties as of May 6, 1945, showing killed in action, wounded and 561. missing. Next to .it is a chart in the form of a nazi-swas- tika, showing German prisoners taken. In the center of the room is a long, scarred and begrimed table where the historic surrender document was signed. Placed around it are 13 straight-backed wooden chairs, with placards showing who occupied them. Unless the visitor looks clo-cly he is apt to miss a piece of paper pasted on the wall near a row of windows. The paper' is ythe "top secret" war room daily sum- mary. No. 335. It reads: "Surrender. The German pov- ernment surrendered uncondi- tionally at Reims, France, at 0241 hours 7 May 1945. The instru- ment of surrender was signed by Lt, Gen. W. Bedell Smith for Q supreme commander and by Ten- eral Oberst Gustav Jodl for ths German government. Maj. Gen. Ivan Susloparov signed as rep- resentative of the Russians, and Gen. Francois Sevez as represen- tative of the French government. Hostilities officially cease at 2301 hours, central European time." Understanding With Russia Is Churchill Plea, Through U. N.

The greatest gain was 276 per cent, made by the Union Hill school. On the first check made by authorities, the school had a total of 25 points, but when the last cherk. was made the school was credited with 94 points. How Points Earned If everything was in ship- shape, a school could collect the following number of points: wat- er supplv, 24 per cent; toilet fa- cilities, 24 per cent; lavatory fa- cilities, 10 per cent; hcathiK and ventilation, 12 per cent; lighting, 10 per building, 8 per cent, and equipment, 12 per cent. Fifty-two schools had a pos- sible score of points on the score sheet used by the health department. Actually, these 52, schools scored points for 53 per cent on the first check. The first scores varied from 10 to 98 per cent out of a possible score of 100. The score indicated a greater effort on the part of some schools was greater than others. Norman C.

Fuller said today he had made to operators and mine workers a proposal to clear the way for set- tlement of the 37-day old soft cool strike. Both sides in the controversy. however, immediately questioned Fuller's statement to reporters. Edward R. Burke, head of the Southern Coal Producers associa- tion, told newsmen the operators had received no peace 'proposal from Fuller. At the headquarters of John L, Lewis, of the United Mine Work- ers, an official said that to char- acterize the Fuller proposal as a definite proposition for settling the strike was "a joke." Both May Deny It Informed of the reaction to his statement of operators and mine workers, Fuller said it might be anticipated that both sides would deny a proposition had been made, because neither porty would care to be placed in the po- sition of rejecting such a proposal in a time of crisis. Burke's denial that a definite peace proposal had been received was made after a caucus of the operators, which Fuller said was called to discuss it. Fuller said his proposal also would be con- sidered at a meeting today of the UMW's policy commit' tee. Fuller declined to discuss ths terms of the proposal. (In New York, Edward F. Mc- Grady, a special mediator in the coal, negotiations, said he hoped there might be a settlement very shortly.) Contract negotiations between the miners and operators were re- cessed until tomorrow to permit further study of the proposal. Fuller's Own Proposal It was reported by those inside the conference that Fuller's pro- posal was his own and did not or- iginate at yesterday's White House meeting of President Tru- man, Secretary of Labor Schwel- Reconversion Director Snyder and White House Assist- ant John R. Steelman. Fuller interrupted this morn- ing's negotiating session to confer separately with Lewis and with Charles O'Neill, head of the Northern Appalachian Producers group, and Edwnrd R. Burko, head of the S9ulhorn Coal Pro- ducers association. The government proposal was offered shortly after the solid fuels administration clamped tighter restrictions on soft coal deliveries to consumers. Household users having more than a five-day supply on hand were denied any more bituminous coal, in one of a scries of restric- tive orders effective immediately. Secretary of Commerce Henry A. Wallace told a news conference in Detroit that the coal strike was rapidly reaching the point whoro it would "transgress general wel- fare."
