Audll Bureau of Circulation 43rd Year No. 38 ADA, OKLAHOMA, WEDNESDAY, MAY 29, 1946 FIVE CENTS THE COPY AGREEMENT ENDS SOFT COAL STRIKE Memorial Day Here Centers in Special Service of Morning Enrollment Still Is Rising For Summer Session Enrollment at East Central reached the 650 mark by Tuesday afternoon and the college offici- als are expecting the total to in- crease steadily until next Mon- day when all enrollment will be completed. In addition to those attending the college, more than 350 per- sons are enrolled in more than 500 active courses by correspon- dence. Officials in charge of the cor- respondence department said Wednesday morning that the number enrolled in correspon- dence courses should increase to pass the 400 mark during the next week or two. Enrollment of veterans for the summer term is somewhat lighter than during the past semester when 240 were in attendance; there are 220 enrolled for the summer session. One college official said that many of those already enrolled are school teachers who have re- turned to college to take addi- tional studies. Some schools in the East Central district have not started vacation and a number of teachers will probably enroll later this week. The number of students enroll- ed is to be determined largely this summer by the number of rooms and apartments made available to students. Enrollment for the fall semester will be more largely determined by the number of apartments available than does the summer term. The situation will be some- what helped by apartments be- ing made available to veterans. K Siamese Complaint Comes Up fo U.K. Siom Charges French In Indo-China with Aggression XEW YORK, May 29, The United Nations organization was confronted with a new prob- lem today in the form of a Siam- ese complaint charging French troops in Indo-China with "un- justified aggression." It was the first time that a non-member of the United Na- tions had appealed to the world peace keeping agency, and the complaint thus presented the or- ganization with a question on pro- cedure. The issue was given an odd twist by the fact that Siam is a former enemy nation as well as a non-member, while France is not only a member but was an aily in the war against the axis. Siam's complaint, made public late last night, was received in the form of a cablegram address- ed to U. N. Secretary General Trygve Lie by Pride Panymyong, president of the Siamese council of ministers. Lie did not comment on the complaint or the possible pro- cedure, but the secretary-general has the authority to call thi security council's attention to any situation which appears to merit action to preserve peace. Dispatches from London yes- terday quoted a British foreign office spokesman as saying that Britain would support any Siam- ese move to bring before the security council her current bord- er dispute with Indochina. The Siamese complaint accused French troops of crossing the Mekong River on May 24. 25 and 26 and "forcibly seizing Siamese territory which they continue to hold." The territory in question apparently was part of the area coded to Siam in 1941 by the old French Vichyite regime in Indo- China.

Governors Outline Program on Draft And Strike Laws OKLAHOMA CITY, May -Extension- of the draft and legislation barring strikes which would affect utilities and other services essential to the public welfare were advocated by the national conference of governors in resolutions passed today. Gov. Edward Martin of Pennsylvania, chairman, said. Under conference rules, all res- olutions must be unanimously ac- cepted lo be adopted. Texts of the resolutions, adop- ted at a closed executive session, were not yet available, Martin said, but he added they urged in general: Extension of the selective ser- vice law. On Utilities Legislation prohibiting inter- ference by labor unions or any other group with public utilities, transportation, or any other ser- vice essential to the public wel- fare. A request that congress finance the cost of the reactivated nation- al guard over and above the state needs and that the federal gov- ernment assist the states in con- ducting recruiting activities for the guard. State participation in the fed- eral airport construction program. Elimination of overlapping vet- crans services and establishing of counseling agencies on a local level. Return of USES Return of the federal employ- ment service to state control. No action was taken on a res- olution presented by Gov. Ralph F. Gates of Indiana asking states to stop asking for federal assist- ance in solving local problems. There also were no resolutions involving the relaxing of war- .time controls. A new nine-man executive committee was elected by the conference and will meet later today to select a new chairman for the coming year. Under conference rules the chairman must be a democrat, since Martin, the present chair- man, is a republican and the chairmanship alternates between governors of the two parties.

Wants World Free of Large Armed Forces WASHINGTON, May 29, Secretary. of th'e State Byrnes told congress today that the Unit- ed States is going to work for "limitation of arms" among the nations of the world. Byrnes enunciated this policy in testimony before the house foreign affairs committee. He said details have not been worked out, but the' government is going "to work for limita- tion of arms." "We desire to see the world free from the fears and burdens which unnecessarily large armed forces would impose on the peo- ples of the Byrnes declar- ed. He made the statement, with- out further elaboration, after urg- ing congressional approval of leg- islation providing for a broad program of "military coopera- tion" with other American na- tions. Await Molotov Reply As he went before the commit- tee, American officials looked to Moscow for. Russian reaction to Byrnes' denial yesterday jf Foreign Minister Molotov's char- ges against him and the United States growing out of the foreign ministers conference in Paris. Byrnes' denial raised ,the ques-' tion: What will be its effect on Russo-American relations, al- ready strained, and on chances for early peace in Europe? The "military cooperation" pro- gram which Byrnes endorsed be- fore the. house committee was contined in a bill proposed to congress May 6 by President Tru- man. It would permit transfer of arms to the 'Other American re- publics. No Arms Race It also would- authorize the to' 'help" train- jnili- tary and naval personnel in those1 countries and to help repair their equipment. Byrnes declared that the pro- gram "would not stimulate an arms race." He said that the other repub- lics merely would be given ade- quate war goods to allow them to defend themselves in event of at- tack. The idea also is, Byrnes said, to 'make their equipment stand- ard with ours, so the nations of the western hemisphere can work together in event of a future war. Gen Dwight Eisenhower arid Adm. Chester W: Nimitz urged support of the legislation in testi- mony before the committee yes- terday.

Government Calls Confer- ence Over Possible Tie-Up Of Notion's Shipping By NORMAN WALKER WASHINGTON, May 29, The threatened maritime strike took top billing today in the gov- ernment's drive to resolve all. major nr disputes. With a coal settlement seem- ingly at hand, Secretary of Lab- or Schwelier.bach called in ship- owners and maritime union chiefs for a (2 p. m'.. EST) conference aimed at finding some way to prevent the shipping tieup set for June 15. That s'.rike, if it comes off, would cripple American's mer- chant marine, halt shipping from Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf ports and prevent the export of- relief supplies for famine areas abroad. Says Up To Owners Joseph C. Curran, president of the CIO National Maritime union, told a reporter on his arrival from New York that he expected the shio operators to make some "new proposals" at the meet- ing. "If thev Curran said, "it will be a difficult situation. And I mean it." Six other unions have joined Curran's union in demanding a 30 percent wage increase, an eight-hour day, overtime adjust- ments and retroactive pay. The seven unions claim about 000 members on ships, more than two-thirds of them owned by the government. The other unions are the Marine Cooks and Stewards As- sociation of the Pacific Coast Marine Firemen, Oilers, Watertenders jand .Wipers sociation; National Marine En- gineers Beneficial Association; Inland Boatmen's union of the j Pacific; International Longshore- men's and Warehousemen's union, headed by" Harry Bridges; and the American Communications Association. All are'CIO affilia- tes. Others Will Help The Inland Boatmen's union and National Marine Engineers Beneficial Association still have contracts with their employers, but they are pledged to assist the other five unions if the strike develops. Figuring in the situation i's a fact-finding board report of May 13 covering the dispute between Bridges' .Longshoremen's union and the Waterfront Employers Association of the Pacific Coast. This report called for a 20 per- cent wage one cent the boost retroactive to Oct. 1, 1945. The labor department said Schwellenbach wanted to learn the position of Bridges and the Employers' Association on this recommendation. Last Offer "Inadequate" Curran's NMU turned down as "completely inadequate" Monday an offer made in New York negotiations for a monthly wage increase and overtime pay increases. This was an offer ad- vanced by 39 Atlantic and Gulf coast ship operators. The principal negotiators for the ship operators called in for the meeting with Schwellenbach are 'Frank J. Taylor, chairman of the committee for general agents at Atlantic and Gulf ports, and J. B. Bryan, president of the Pacific American Shipowners As- sociation. Greater returns for amount in- vested.

Truman the senate's version of the Case strike control bill. Passage was by a roll call vote of 230 to 106, slightly more than the two-thirds majority required to override a veto if the president repects the measure. The senate voted 49 to 29 for the bill last Saturday. The party breakdown on the roll call vote: 98 democrats and 132 republicans for the measure; 91 democrats, 13 republicans and 2 minor party members against it. As rewritten by the senate, the measure contains a prohibition against employer contributions to union administered welfare funds, and provides for a 60-day pre-strike cooling off periods. Amid veiled hints that its ac- tion would bring a veto, the house rammed' the legislation through by a roll-call vote after two hours of debate. Congressional action on the controversial Case bill was com- pleted as the senate heard a vote C5 p.m. est) on the president's re- quest for emergency legislation _to draft strikers who refuse to work for the government. Senator Ellender (D.-La.) told reporters after a While House call that Mr. Truman was de- termined on having the emer- gency powers he requested in a speech before congress last Sat- urday.

He added that she had intended to resign if the transfer failed. Defense Counsel W. W. Miller admitted in his opening state- ment that Lowery's first accounts of the shooting did not coincide but attributed it to the fact he was "under strain that night."

Poll of Senators Shows Powerful Opposition To Emergency Bill Asked By Truman By The Afcoclated Prcsi WASHINGTON, May Truman's strike- draft faces almost certain defeat in the senate if, the coal dispute is settled quickly, an Associated Press poll showed today. Of 63 senators willing to slate their position, 45 said they are opposed to that section of the house-passed emergency bill which would empower the presi- dent to induct i4nto the army those who strike in government- seized industries. Eighteen sen- ators announced their support of the proposal. The senate begins its second day of debate on the measure to- day. At the same time, the house rules committee was expected to clear the way for early action by that body on the senate's version of the so-called Case labor dis- putes bill. Opponents Near Majority The 45 senators lined up against the draft section of the emergency measure passed by a dramatic 306 to 13 house vole last Saturday 'include 20 Democrats, 24 Republicans and a Progres- sive. They represent a bloc only four short of a 48 majority, now that there is one vacancy in the senate. Moreover, there seemed lillle doubl that if the coal dispute is seltled and the industrial scene quiets even temporarily, the mar- gin for defeat of the- draft pro- vision would be supplied from among 14 Democrats and 11 Re- pijblicuns who decline to com- mit themselves publicly right now.- Seek To Avoid Showdown There was a growing belief in the senate, meanwhile, that some way might be found to avoid a showdown lest on the issue. Op- ponenls have described it as the most sweeping grant of power ever sought by any president. Supporters have termed it neces- sary emergency authority that might never be used. Senators Wheeler (D.-Mpnl.) and O'Mahoney (D.-Wyo.) were reported to have urged Mr. Tru- man at a White House conference yesterday to withdraw his en- tire emergency bill if an agree- ment is reached in the coal con- troversy. While there were some indica- tions that the president might be considering this course, he re- portedly gave no assurance thai any such action would be forth- coming. Labor Hammers At Bill Organized labor' kept up its barrage against the entire bill. Tiie latest blast came from Sid- ney Hillman, head of the CIO's political action committee, who contended Mr. Truman had acted ''in a moment of national hysteria deliberately provoked by the re- actionary forces of big business." Hillnian declared the measure would give the government "the most extreme and autocratic con- trols over xxx American work- ers ever seriously proposed" and pleaded in a telegram to senators to study the bill "in an atmos- phere free from passion and vin- dicative anger." Senate Republicans, mean- while, armed wjlh the unofficial approval of their parly confer- ence, prepared lo blast al Hie emergency bill with a scries of amendments. Read the News Classified Ads.

District 6 headquarters said in Columbus, O., that "we think the strike is over" and that final de- tails of the settlement would be worked put at a a. m. con- ference in Washington.
