Two bombs exploded in Jewish stores in Beirut last night, caus- ing heavy damage and wounding four persons, but elsewhere there was tense quiet. Police and troops took extraor- dinary precautions against any outbreak of violence and Egyp- tian Prime Minister Ismail Siclky Pasha, accompanied by an armed escort, toured the streets of Cairo, alert for any sign of trouble. Cairo Shops Closed Most Cairo shops were closed ar.d tramcars were not running. Extra police wore on duty and large reserves were helcl in read- iness for emergency. Military vehicles toured the streets and the city was placed out of bounds for British troops. A heavy police guard was thrown around the old Mousky Bazaar, Cairo's market place, which was the goal of a mob attack in a Palestine protest last November The work stoppage was almost 100 percent effective in Alexand- ria, where large forces of police and soldiers, some of them patrol- ling the main thoroughfares in trucks, were on duty. Diploma- tic sources in Cairo said the strike was nationwide in Iraq.

College Now Rushing Work On Housing Hopes to Have 20 Vet Units Ready for Summer; Ap- plications Pouring In A deal to purchase 15 acres of additional land by East Central college hasn't gone through, but college officials are hoping that the deal will be completed in time for erection of new housing units that have been approved for vet- erans. If the land deal goes through, about 73 housing units will be constructed on it. The college had been approved for 35 and the city of Ada has 38 approved units. The college previously had 20 units approved by the Federal Public Housing authority. Some Ready Soon It is the hopes of college au- thorities that the first 20 units will be completed for occupancy by May 24, when .enrollment for the summer term of school starts. Oscar Parker, college official, said that 25 applicants wanting apartments had to be turned away last Saturday morning and explained that in an effort to handle the increased enrollment at the college this summer three men are to be put in a room that is equipped to handle only two. Boost Use of Dorm Fentem Hall was built to take care of about 110 men, but it is expected that 150 to 160 will call the hall home during the summer school term.

WASHINGTON, May 10, An objection by Rep. Sheridan (D-Pa.) blocked immediate house action today on stop-gap legisla- tion extending the draft law un- til July 1. Sheridan, a member of the military committee, objected to a request of Chairman May (D- Ky.) for unanimous consent for immediate action on Ihe measure, passed yesterday by the senate. However, there was no objec- tion to a later request for house consideration next Monday, two days before the present draft law expires. Discussion indicated that an at- tempt will be made Mqriday to write into the stop-gap legisla- tion a ban against induction of teen-agers. The house banned1 the drafting of 18 and 10-year-olds it passed last month a separate bill extending the draft law until next February 15. The senate has not acted on that bill. The July 1 extension received military committee approval in the morning. The measure, an obvious ex- pedient designed to give congress more legislative elbow room, leaves the ultimate fate of selec- tive service still beset with un- certainties. Passed quickly and without op- position yesterday by the senate in a hurried effort to prevent the draft from expiring at mid- night next Wednesday, the ex- tender bill was carded for a quick house vote today. Strike of Airline Pilots Deferred Hearing Set Before Tru- man-Appointed Board CHICAGO, May The threatened strike by AFL airline pilots against transconti- nental and western airline (Trans World a union official said today, has been "indefinitely suspended" pending a hearing be- fore an emergency board appoin- ted by President Truman to study the wage dispute. David L. Behncke, president of the AFL Air Line Pilots associa- tion, said in a statement that the suspension was voted by the Pilot Master Executive council after a study of the president's executive order, which was issued Tuesday, before the strike was to become effective at p.m. that day. Behncke said Mr. Truman was advised of the council's aclion. The president's appointment of an emergency board normally un- der the Railway Labor act, which covers airline disputes, postpones strike action 30 to GO days. However, notices had been re- ported received by the Kansas City local of the pilots union post- poning the scheduled strike for 48 hours and until Bchnckc's statoincnt it was not definitely determined whether the pilots would strike. The union president said the pilots contended the national mediation board "acted I in that other airlines, in addition 1 to TWA, were named in the May 7 executive order. He said no collective- negotiations are in pro- grcss and no emergency exists at the other airlines. In naming the board, President Truman directed it to investigate the claims of 13 air lines.

Umberto Allowed To Be King Only June 2 By JOHN P. MCKNIGHT ROME, May Italian cabinet approved today the assumption of the throne by Crown Prince Umberto, but spec- ified his powers would extend only until June 2. On that day the Italian people -will decide whether "to continue the monar- chy. v The ministers decided Umberto could sign decrees "Umberto II, King of Italy" but not use the phrase traditionally following the signature, "by grace of God and will of the people." Umberto's father, Viltorio Emanuele III, abdicated last night after a 45- year reign and sailed for Egypt. Useless, Say Socialists Communists oppose Umberto, and the socialist press today call- ed him the "king oi May" and declared in its headlines "fascist prince succeeds fascist king for 23 days." The socialist newspaper said the abdication was a "useless po- litical maneuver" intended to in- fluence the outcome of the June plebiscite. J Greece also prepared to settle speedily the fate of her king, George II. Premier Tsaldaris an- nounced that Greeks would vote on the question as soon as elec- toral lists are revised. Previous- ly the Greek government had not planned to hold a plebiscite un- til 1948, but the populist party, largely monarchist, came i n t-o power in recent elections. Re- cent announcements from Athens said the British and United States governments had agreed to the holding of an earlier plebiscite. Charge Broke Truce Rome's communist party Or- gan L'Unita charged that the abdication had "broken the truce on monarchy." When the allies captured Rome two years ago the Italian government and crown a- gi'eed to a truce on the question of the monarchy pending a vot- ers' decision, but a British foreign office1 spokesman in London said recently the decision to hold the election June 2 was interpreted as ending the period of the truce. Range and Pasture Conditions Good DENVER, May and pasture feed conditions of the west are generally good ex- cept for dry areas of the south- west, the western livestock office of the U. S, bureau of .agriculture economics reported today. Rain during April and early May improved feed prospects in parts of Texas and the northern great plains, the report said. Livestock is in good condition and has made seasonal gains ex- cept in areas that are dry with short feed.. Dry conditions, retarded range growth in parts of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.

Moisture is needed in some sections of western Kan- sas and eastern Colora'do. Read the News Classified Ads. Lewis, Galled To Meet President, i Orders 12 Day Coal Strike Truce Ministers Not Agreeing Conference in Paris May Break Up Next Byrnes, Molotov Far Apart PARIS, May insistence on full agreement among the Big Four before call- ing of a' European peace confer- ence was described in today's session of the foreign ministers as a "veto on permitting the na- tions which took part in the war to express their views" on the treaties, a British source said. This- source quoted British for- eign Secretary Ernest Bevin as attacking the Soviet stand during the morning's two-hour council session. Meet Again Today A second 'meeting was sched- uled for this afternoon in an ef- fort to work out an agreement on the proposal of Secretary of State Byrnes'i to convoke a 21-nation peace conference for June 15. An American informant said Byrnes also opposed the Soviet stand and said the four ments'had a responsibility before the world to see that-the treaties were written and to safeguard the rights of the nations which parti- cipated in the war to have a say in the treaties. Byrnes suggested that the min- isters, set a.definite date for the conference now and then continue working in Paris in small, infor- mal' sessions to try to narrow down, the measure of disagree- ment between them, prior to the conference. Little Chance For Agreement Although the conferees were expected to make, a last ditch effort to compromise the diverg- ent views of Russia and .the Uni- ted States on the convening of a general peace parley, most ob- servers predicted that no such .agreement would be effected and that the ministers 'would return to their homes early next week. Delegates themselves' admitted privately that there was only a flicker of hope for bridging the gap between Russia and the west on several .fundamental issues. That gap was widened yester- day, when James F. Byrnes, U.S. secretary of state, and V. M. Mol- otov, Russia's foreign minister, argued for vtwo hours without agreement .on Byrnes' sugges- tion that a 21-nation peace con- ference meet in Paris June 15. Molotov, reportedly acting on fresh instructions from Moscow, insisted that a 21-nation peace conference should act only on treaties on which Russia, France, Britain and the United States had reached a prior accord.

A flashlight, one of the few clues in the last slaying which took the life of Farmer Virgil Starks May 3, had been sent to the Federal Bureau of Investiga- tion in Washington. Sheriff W. E. Davis of Miller county, Arkan- sas, said the FBI had informed him the flashlight had no finger- prints. It had been found near the Starks home the night of the slaying. Meanwhile, ten new patrol cars with a three-way mobile radio unit from the Texas depart- ment of safety were pulroling the area.

Senate Takes Up Labor Law Feeling Tense Over-Cool Strike Results, Members Bring Measure to Calendar By FRANCIS J. KELLY WASHINGTON, May senate, tense over mush- rooming consequences of the coal strike, got set today to drop ev- erything else by midafternoon and begin writing a new labor disputes law. For its framework, members hauled out of the unfinished bus- iness calendar their labor com- mittee's toned-down version of the case strike control bill passed weeks ago by the house. But that mild measure obvious- ly was going to be only the be- ginning, for a dozen amendments with heavy were headed for the floor. To clear the way for the labor bill, the hard-pressed senate passed a six weeks' draft exten- sion resolution in a matter of minutes yesterday, then''worked until nearly midnight in a futile effort to dispose of the long de- bated British loan. Barkley Reluctant While a vote on final passage faiied to come, the chamber did agree to ballot at 3 p.m. (est) on the loan proposal and then turn immediately to the subject of strike control. Majority Leader Barkley (Ky.) reluctantly acceded to the slam- bang procedure. It was evident by mid-afternoon that the mem- bers were in no mood to be de- nied a hand at efforts to bring the coal strike to an end and to prevent future work stoppages from interfering wi.th the pub- lic welfare and convenience. Labor May Lose Sonic Gains Senator Lucas him- self a sponsor of one far-reaching amendment, took note of the senate's altitude when he told re- porters: the result of the obstinacy of John L. greatest recalicitrant of them all labor stands to lose all it has gained in the past 12 or 14 years. "I hope that doesn't happen, but the senate is in a mood, in view of the mounting lie-up of the national economy, to vole any kind of labor legislation." Lucas contended his own plan would not seriously affect the basic rights of labor. Under his proposal, the presi- dent upon determining that a work stoppage seriously im- pairing the public interest would so proclaim and call upon the parties to the dispute to resume work. If they did not do so, the president could seize the proper- ty and operate it, under the terms and conditions which pre- vailed before the stoppage. Officers of the affected labor organization would have a statu- tory duty to seek to induce'the men to return to work. Those who did not go back to work would lose their jobs and their rights under the Wagner Labor Relations act. Anyone who tried to persuade or coerce another from returning to work would be subject to a year's imprisonment and a fine.

President May Have Proposal Miners to Return to Work If Management Agrees To Retroactive Pay Increases WAGE BOOST SEEN Truman Reported Ready With Compromise to Sub- mit to White House Conference WASHINGTON, May L. Lewis proposed a two- week truce in the paralyzing coal strike today but operators defer- red a decision until after a White House conference with President Truman at 4 p.m. Lewis offered to send the 000 United Mine Workers back to the pits immediately, with full crews returning on Monday. He tacked on a proviso however, that the truce would be effective only if the operators agreed to make retroactive any wage in- crease subsequently granted. This brought from the oper- ators negotiating committee this terse statement: "The operators negotiating committee will issue a statement of their position after meeting with the president. In the mean- time the committee suggests that the operators in the field await advice from it." WASHINGTON, May 10, John L. Lewis today called for a 12-day truce in the coal strike be- ginning Monday. Lewis wired every local union president urging him to arrange for the striking United Mine Workers to get back on the job as soon as the local mine management agreed to make re- troactive during the truce any pay increase later negotiated. "This action is the contribution of the United Mine Workers oi America to our nation's econo- Lewis telegraphed the loc- als, "which is being imperiled by the stupidity and selfish greed of the coal operators and associat- ed financial interests and by de- magogues who have tried to lash the public mind into a state of hysteria rather than grant justice and fair treatment to the men who mine the nation's coal. Lewis acted less than an hour after President Truman invited the mine loader and a representa- tive of the operators to a Whita House conference at 4 p. m. Coal For Essentials The UMW chieftain told the union locals: "the coal to be min- ed during this two week (truce) period can be utilized for con- sumption by essential facilities and the nation's health and se- curity thus safeguard while ef- forts to negotiate a contract, con- tinue. "Let every member be assured that the members of the national policy committee aru determin- ed to accept no contract that will not give to the mine workers thu essential protective which is im- peratively required." Lewis called in reporters three hours before the scheduled Whita House conference and announced that the policy committee of 250 strike leaders had unamiously authorized sending of the tele- gram to each local union. Truman Considers Proposal Simultaneously, a close as- sociate of President Truman re- ported the chief executive was considering proposing an 18 Mr cent an hour wage increase and the establishment of a commis- sion-controlled health and wel- fare fund in an effort to end the strike. This official, who cannot be named but who participated in White House discussions of the plan said the president appeared (Continued on Page 2 Column fi) TH' PESSIMIST By Bob Jr, Nearly ever' day some fel- ler slaps us on th1 back, 'throws a few compliments our way, an' we begin t' think mnybc we nin't doin' so it dawns on us he's runnin' for office.
