The 38th parallel is the boundary between American and Russian occupation zones. Amer- icans freely have admitted Rus- sian observers in southern Korea, but Russians have permitted very lew Americans in their zone. Asked what Russia could gain by permitting him and his staff to survey former Japanese indus- try, he remarked "I don't see any harm in it."

An Appeal As everyone knows, there is an acute housing short- age in Ada, as well as throughout the entire country; and it is apparent that the attendance in any college or university this summer and next fall will be.the number of students that the institution can house in its own ac- commodations and in private homes. East Central is erecting some apartment houses, and will erect some more before the fall term begins. But it is apparent that it cannot provide enough housing for students who want to that the -College needs. We are, therefore, compelled to appeal for help from the people of Ada. Anyone who has a room that could be rented for the summer term beginning May 27 or who has an apartment should phone the College, Phone Num- ber 3040. We are not asking that you give this room or apartment. Students will be able to pay a reasonable rental for such accommodations, although they cannot be expected to pay inflated prices. If you have a room or an apartment that you can make available for students, please phone us, telling us the number of persons you can accommodate and the. price of such accommodations. You will render the Col- lege a service by doing this. Very respectfully, A. Linscfieid, President.

Industry Is Reviving As Miners Return Men Being Called Back To Work or Shutdown Plans Being Revoked Now By The Associated Pica Prospects brightened today for a speedier industrial revival from the coal shortage as more bituminous, miners returned to work under their strike truce. Over the nation out of still were idle. Pennsylvania's idle' coal dig- gers dropped from to about after the state ruled they were eligible for unemployment compensation payments without any( more waiting period, should the strike continue after expira- tion of the United Mine Workers' 12-day truce. The miners on Monday com- pleted the required five week penalty period, plus the regular one-week wait. William Hynes, president of UMW district 4 where only a handful of the miners returned, predicted the keystone state rul- ing would "help a lot" in getting all of the Pennsylvania's soft coal diggers back by tomor- row. Industry Perks Up Production in West Virginia the largest coal producing state was almost normal with of the total miners work- ing: All but of Alabama's miners were on the job, while in Kentucky out of were back in the pits. Industry, which only last week was gloomily reporting layoffs and shutdowns, gave a more opti- mistic picture today. Dupont's cellophane., plant at Buffalo, N. Y., which had planned to shut down Friday, told its 700 workers raw materials were again available and hoped "to keep going without any shutdown at all." Similarly, the Dupont cello- phane plant at Nashville, Tenn., announced it will not lay off its employes, although produc- tion. continues at 75 percent of normal. Chevrolet Changes Flans The American locomotive plant at Schenectady, N. Y., called' back 50 employes. Plans to lay 'off 000 Chervolet Motor Co. employes in in Buffalo and Lockport, N. Y. were dropped. The Pittsburgh Steamshop Co. said it would halt decotnmissioning of its 63-ship ore fleet and return to service those craft already withdrawn. Steel, first to feel effects of the strikes, was also among the first to recover. The Carnegie-Illinois Steel Corp. said its hot mill at Vandergrift, Pa., would operate this week. The Ellwood City, Pa., works of the National Tube Co., another U. S. Steel Corp., subsid- ary, recalled workers. Illinois reported the number of workers idle or in a shortened week has fallen to compar- ed. with the figure of last week.

HAAKINSON WASHINGTON, May men 26 through 29 years old came back into the draft picture today-as President Truman's choice of "the lesser of two evils" kept selective service legally alive but croppled. For the moment, however, only men 20-25 will be inducted. Mr. Truman chose last night to sign a 45-day stop-gap extension of the draft with an HEADS OFF CALL HERE Today "call" day for Pontotoc coun- ty draft board No. 2, which had a group of 18-year-olds ready to be s.ent oi'f to the military services. However, the board receiv- ed instructions from the state board during the morning not to send any 18 or 19-year olds for the time being1 and asking if the board had any ZO-ycar olds available to meet the call. A rc-clicck ocean throug-h the files, hut Mrs. P. L. Gassaway, secretary, said that she did not think the board had any of that ape group. s Operators Say m V m i No To Lewis Today Collects Old Playbills and Programs (Continued on Page 2 Column 5) outright ban on inductions of ei- ther fathers or teen-age rather than let the act expire at midnight. The chief executive affixed his signature just four hours before the deadline. Less than two hours earlier the senate rammed through the extender after Sen- ator Langer. (R-ND) abandoned his threat to talk selective service to death. Must Be Draft Director Lewis B. Her- shey immediately wired local boards to confine inductions to men in the under-26 group Mr. Truman designated when Japan fell last August, but army offi- cials in a position to know said this will have to be changed. Noting that the law specifically permits men 20 through 29 to be drafted, one official said, "of course, that's what we'll have to do." He asked not to be identified by name. At draft, headquarters, spokes- 7nen took the position that it is up to the army to take any steps to raise the top limit set by the president. Pool Of Eligibles Small These spokesmen said that un- der the new setup selective ser- vice has 'a pool of only about 000 eligibles 20 through 25 from which to meet monthly calls. They estimated that of these per- haps 50 percent may be physical- ly unfit. Raising of the limit to include men 26, 27, 28 and 29 would pro- vide only an additional registrants for possible induction, they added. Mr. Truman left no doubt that he was displeased with the way the draft extension was brought about. His press secretary, Charl- es G. Ross, used, the "lesser of two evils" description in telling re- porters the president regarded the stop-gap measure as a "bad bill." Ross added: "The president doesn't like it at all, but feels, as some of his officials do, that it will be better to sign it than have confusion that will result from failure to continue a legislative support for armed force inductions." Another Battle Ahead While Langer still held the sen- ate floor, Mr. Truman signed an executive order that would have preserved selective service .ma- chinery but permitted no actual inductions. Final enactment of the bill, however, made this ac- tion unnecessary. Langer and a number of- other senators promised that another word battle faces administration to extend selective ser- vice beyond July 1. "I'll fight that too as well as 1 know Langer said. Bitt Secretary of War Patter- son issued a statement last night in which he noted that the senate had passed the stop-gap bill "as modified by the house" and add- ed: "I hope that before July 1 an extension of selective service for one year will be adopted by the congress in such form as to per- mit the war department to carry out the tasks expected of it by the nation." While the new law exempts 18 and 19 year old from the draft, selective service said youths turning 18 still will be required to register. O. C.

Propaganda, Says Acheson Says Russ Jap May Day Message to Council Effort To Spread Communist Ideas By TOM LAMBERT TOKYO, May 15, Atcheson, Jr., General Mac- Arthur's poli'.ical adviser, today told the allied council for Japan that a Japanese May Day mes- sage placed before it by Rus- sian's members was "an attempt to soread communistic propagan- The message, addressed sepa- I rately to the four council mem- bers and to MacArthur, called the Japanese government "enemies of democratic revolution" and ask- ed the allies for cooperation and assistance to achieve freedom. The message was not signed. The Russian delegate, Lt. Gen. Kuzma Derevyanko, brought the message to the council with a request to MacArthur' for infor- mation on the statements made therein. "According to translators, the document was not written in idio- matic Japanese, but rather gives the impression that the original i had been drawn up in a foreign I language and then translated into Japanese for said Atcheson, who is American mem- ber and chairman of the coun- cil as well as MacArthur's aide. "I do not need to tell you the United States does not favor com- munism in the United or Atcheson continued. "It is my opinion that the efforts of members of this coun- cil should be toward the democra- tization of Japan and it is not consistent with our clear duty in that respect for any member of the council to give support in public meetings of the council or otherwise to any one Japanese political, party." Atcheson's remarks were made during a verbal engagement be- tween him and Derevyanko on the authenticity of "the facts" in the message and whether it rep- resented the views of an estima- ted Japanese who took part in a May Dav demonstration here.

Secrelary of State Byrnes pro- posed to the foreign ministers council today that a peace con- ference be called Nov. 12 to draft a peace treaty for Germany, an American informant said. In session completely taken up with discussion of critical Ger- man problems, Byrnes proposed that representatives of Britain, Russia, France and the United States start meeting, immediately to draw'up a treaty draft for Ger- many which the foreign ministers could present to the peace confer- ence, the informant said. If the dale of Nov. 12 is adopt- ed, the peace conference would convene on the 25th anniversary of the opening session of the 1921 Washington disarmament confer- ence and 28 years and a day after the 1918 armistice. Byrnes was reported .to have proposed that the foreign minis- ters' representatives first report on the economic status of Ger- many to the foreign ministers council at their next meeting, pos- sibly June 15. Byrnes' three colleagues, the foreign ministers of R u s s i a, France and Britain, said they wanted to study the proposal be- fore committing themselves. The three-hour meeting today began with Georges B i d a u 1 1, French foreign minister, present- ing France's demand for complete separation of the Ruhr and Rhincland from Germany and for French control of the Saar. Referring to the number of times France has had to fight Germany, Bidault economic measures to control these terri- tories were not enough, that there must be political separation. Sources close to the Russian delegation predicted today that Soviet Minister Vyacheslav M. Molotov would agree to a U. S. proposal to summon a 21-nation peace conference in July follow- ing another four-power confer- ence next month. SENDING C-54 TO PARIS XO BRING BYRNES HOME WASHINGTON May 15, The White House said today that a C-54 plane not the "Scared however will be sent to Paris today or tomorrow to bring home delegates from the four- power conference. Press Secretary Charles G. Ross said the dispatching of the plane "does not mean an immediate ad- journment of the conference." The plane is to be held "in readiness" for Secretary Byrnes and his party whenever it is needed. Ross said the presidential plane commonly known as "The Sacred will be used by the presi- dent himself when he travels to Missouri this weekend.

Ada News Classified Ads Welfare Fund Levy Rejeded Government Recesses Ne- gotiations After Operators Turn in Answer By HAROLD W. WARD WASHINGTON May 15. The government recessed the soft coal negotiations indefinitely to- day after operators flatly rejected John L. Lewis' demand for a seven percent payroll levy for a miners' welfare fund. Government Conciliator Ed- ward F. McGrady' said, however, he would not term thu discontin- uance of the meeting a "collapse in negotiations." McGrady said he and Special Conciliator Paul W. Fuller pro- posed the indefinite recess and that both sides ngrccil to return at their cull. Discussed "Several Matters" Questioned about the status of the negotiations after tho opera- tors turned down Lewis' No, 1 the seven percent payroll charge against the opera- said that even at today's sessions "wo discussed several matters." McGrady said Lewis, who had not returned for the afternoon, meeting, has submitted all his specific demands except on wages and hours. The coal minors arc now work- ing under a two weeks truce which expires May 25. Just before the recess, Recon- version Director John W, Snyder reported that President Truman will use "every posible action" within his power to prevent a re- newal of the strike, WASHINGTON, May negotiations apparently stalemated over John L. Lewis' welfare fund demand, reconver- sion Director John W. Snyder said today President Truman will use "every possible action" within his power to prevent a renewal of the soft coal strike. Snyder's statement, which was not amplified, was contained in, an agriculture department an- nouncement on the effects an- other strike would have on food production. Most of the miners are now at work under a two weeks' truce which began Mon- day. "Secretary of Agriculture An- derson told Snyder ho considered the effect of coal shortages on food alone a national calamity" and said n further shutdown, would imperil not only famine relief shipments but domestic supplies as well. Operators Reject Demand Anderson's report to Snyder was released shortly after the bituminous operators flatly re- jected as a "new social theory" the United Mine Workers pro- posal for a seven per cent payroll levy on the operators to finance a miners' welfare fund. The agriculture department, in a statement accompanying the Anderson report, said Snydor had advised the secretary that "every possible action within the power of the president would be used to prevent a further shut- down of the coal mines." Whether Ihis might mean gov- ernment seizure of the mines in event a new contract is not sign- ed before the strike truce runs out May 25 was not clarified at the White House. Food Industries Near Close _ Anderson said most of the na- tion's food industries would be close to a standstill within a few days if the strike should be re- sumed. "Without the coal for power and refrigeration, as well as for transportation, vast quantities of food would spoil, imperilling not only U. S. shipments of food ov- erseas but also the domestic sup- ply during the coming the secretary said. While the operators did not turn down tho idea of a fund.
