BARTLESVILLK WOMAN TO BE TRIED FOR PERJURY TULSA, Okla., May 8, Lola Hampton, Bartlesville widow, must face trial in feder- al court on a perjury chare re- sulting from her testimony in the Washington county liquor con- spiracy cases. Mrs. Hampton was charged while the liquor charge still was in progress but was not formally indicted until yesterday's grand jury action. The committee, in sending to the house floor yesterday a sharply-cut interior appropria- tion bill, slashed more than from the bud- get estimates of the pow- er project operating in Rayburn's home .stalu and other portions of the southwest.

Real Conditions 01 Peace Still Some Years in Future That Prospect Darkens With Inability of Big Na- tions to Settle Peace Terms. By JOHNiM. HIGHTOWER AP Diplomatic Reporter WASHINGTON, May The world, observed the first an-, niversary of victory in Europe today without war but also without peace. In fact, the best estimate of diplomatic authorities here is it maybe several years before real conditions of peace are restored among nations.. The ..prospeqts even for this, they say, have been darkened by the evident failure of the foreign ministers "confer- ence in Paris to make progress on European peace settlements. The situation in Europe is matched in Asia by the dispute between the Chinese communists and the central government; and in the middle east by the tensions over the war-born Palestine -crisis revolving around proposals' for the admittance of Jewish refugees to the Holy Land. Progress On Machinery of Peace Estimates of ,the condition in which the world finds itself on today's V-E anniversary leave little doubt that the allied powers have made 'considerable progress toward organizing machinery to preserve peace once.they estab- lish it. But it is the process of establishing the peace that pfe- sents the toughest going. Almost the only major problem, in Europe on which the United States, Britain, Russia and France seem able to find a common de- nominator of agreement at the moment is the one presented by the Franco government in Spain. They don't like Franco. Early Settlements Unlikely But in the. major political dis- putes concerning Russia's rights in the Balkans, the future of Ger- many, British 'domination in the these there is no basic agreement. And officials here hold little hope of early set- tlements. There is wide spread belief among both American and fore- ign diplomats that the Paris fore- ign ministers conference actually, may r.esult in splitting Europe for n long time between the western allies and Russia, rather than in unifying it in peace. Five Peace Treaties Needed The problem of the conference is to write peace treaties for Italy, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Finland. Failing in this, the .con- ferees may have to resort to a system of modifying present armistice agreements with the ex-enemy satellites. This would prolong indifinitely their suspension between war and peace and might strengthen the position of occupying powers within them. In Asia the restoration of real peace and the elimination of sour- ces of conflict among the great powers depend on three factors: (1) Somehow unifying China, winning allied agreement on the long-range-control of.Japan, and putting into effect plans for the full independence of Kor- ea.

Lewis' united mine workers as the government took new steps to meet the crisis arising from the 38-day-old coal strike. Byrd, who called on President Truman earlier this week to take action to end the coal dispute, proposed the royalty prohibition in the senate as an amendment to a version of the house-approved case strike control bill. He said in a statement that he would "urge the earliest possible action" on the measure. Similar to bills now pending in the house, it would outlaw the pay- ment of the 10 cent a ton royalty on coal which operators say Lew- is has demanded to finance a health and benefit fund for min- ers.
