BRUNER TO TULSA U  TULSA, Okla., June 12.-W-Leonard B. Bruner of Wichita Falls, Tex., has been appointed an instructor of chemistry at the University of Tulsa, President C.  I. Pontius announced.  Washington, june 12—up)  -—The price of that elusive loaf of  bl .e a d advanced  a  P«nny today with OPA approval.  The increase is effective immediately, along with a price boost of one cent a dozen for bread rolls.  The higher prices apply to all kinds of bread except rye, which went up two rents a loaf April 30.  Prices are being raised. OPA said, because bakers’ production costs have climbed as a result of  a  25 Per cent cut in the amount of flour they may use. The production was ordered to help meet famine relief requirements.  OPA said th* t before the flour cut, bakers made a “small profit” by spreading their costs over a large output of bread loaves. It added that the effect of trimmihg production has been a substantial increase in the cost per loaf.  Can’t Continue Old Price For this reason, OPA said, bakers “no longer are in a position to continue selling at prices ‘frozen* at March 1942 levels.”  The price increase, the agency continued, “is designed to assure consumers of as adequate a supply of bread and bread-type rolls as is consistent with the president’s famine emergency program.”  An OPA official estimated that actually the cost of bread now is about two cents more a loaf than it was prior to June I, when the agriculture department ordered the weight of loaves cut by IO per cent without a    -  price reduction.

FOREST FIRE SPREADING  CLIFTON, Ariz., June 12.—(ZP)  A forest fire that has "burned over 3,000 acres in eastern Arizona still was out of control today.  The fire, the worst of the year in Arizona, started last Thursday on the San Carlos indian reservation. Indians from the reservation and 40 fire fighters have added to the prevoius forces.  complaining justice, he added, probably would be the chief witness if any investigation were decided upon.  Committee Powers Limited The chairman said he favors a cautious approach because of the unprecedented nature of the explosion. After all, Sumners said, the house judiciary committee has no power of “visitation” on the courts—that is it has no power to check up just to see if everything is going all right.  It does have the power of impeachment, but Sumners asserted that nothing so far indicates that any such drastic action would be justified.  Rep. Michener (R-Mich) indicated sympathy with Sumner’s view that Jackson should be present at any investigation, asserting “of course, you can’t have a wedding without a bride and groom.”  Two other committee members said they thought an eventual inquiry w ould be justified.  Clash of Personalities  /rx°Il^ he other hand *  Re P- Ceiler (D-NY), anotner member of the committee, sate he didn’t see what congress could do about the controversy because “it involves only a judge’s judgment” of when he should disqualify himself.  Ceiler added that “it appears to be a clash of personalities and I  b tP e  * be new  chief justice will be able to reconcile their differences.”  Fred M. Vinson’s nomination to be chief justice is slated to come before the senate judiciary committee Friday, but Chairman Mc-Carran (D-Nev) said he thought the Jackson-Black incident should not figure at that session.

June 12. ‘^—Battle experience, youth and possible* promotion of experienced noncoms to commissioned status were factors Gov. Robert S. Kerr has urged be given reconsideration in organizing personnel of the reactivated 45th division.  He further suggested in a letter to Adjutant General George A. Davis that National Guard units He formed as soon as possible in Oklahoma communities now f  having available armories. Other towns, which have not previously had units “should be requested to sponsor and organize units, the governor added.  Kerr said priorities in the organization of personnel for the all-Oklahoma division should be established “insofar as practicable” in relations to the men’s combat experience with the 45th or with other outfits to which I bey were transferred.  Davis and Lt. Gen. Raymond S. McClain are working out details for tho guard’s reactivation.  Garbage Haul Heavy Here  Soma Still Not Cooperating by Separating Burn* abl#, Nan-Burnable Material  Ada’s new garbage trucks are doing a good job—and a big one —daily, Mayor Luke Dodds reports after a bit of checking up. but can do a much better job if all residents will cooperate on one thing—separation of burnable and non-burnable material.  Each truck averages 24 miles a day and average hauling 12 tons of garbage to the incenerator or to the dump grounds.  Just handling that volume of garbage daily is a big job.  But some residents still are not putting glass and cans in separate containers as they have been asked to do. And some slyly put such materials in the middle of their garbage pails to fool the collectors into dumping it all in together.  But, says the mayor, the men now are pretty well on to that trick and if necessary will begin NOT taking any garbage in which such materials are found concealed.  Another help now that the canning season is here, says Dodds, will be to drain water from seeds and peelings of watermelon rinds —so that the city will not have to use gas in addition to burnable  FIVE CENTS THE COPY  Bevin Says Britain Hay Turn Down Proposals on Palestine  Btcausa Commission's Idea of Allowing 100,000 Jaws Ta Enter Immediately Would Require More Troops at Once  BOURNEMOUTH, Eng., June 12.

Taylor, a spokesman for the ship operators in the threatened maritime strike, reported today that the unions involver! have rejected a new compromise offer on the work week for seamen.  Almost simultaneously. Joseph Curran, president of the CIO National Maritime union, said “a long and bitter strike” will begin Friday midnight, as scheduled, unless the seamen’s work-week is cut or their pay boosted.  Both appeared before a house labor subcommittee.  “There is no use kidding ourselves.” Curran told a house labor subcommittee.  “We are going to have to fight to get protection for the seamen, and by god. we will fight.” Curran was critical of both President Truman a..d navy officers for statements that the navy would run the ships if the maritime workers refuse to do so, in a strike set to begin Friday midnight.

( *F>—An application of 45 employes for a temporary injunction to halt union picketing of their employer’s company has been denied on grounds the court has no authority to intervene unless violence occurs.  At a hearing on the petition by employes of the Quick Charge Inc., Oklahoma City manufacturing firm, District Judge Lewis R.  Morris ruled that under decisions of the U. S. supreme court he has no authority to intervene in peacetime picketing.  D. I. Johnston, attorney for the plaintiffs, said the case would be carried to highest tribunal for a ruling. An appeal however cannot be filed until Judge Morris rules on an application for a permanent injunction.  The injunction was sought on die plaintiff’s charge that their jobs W'ere being jeopardized because the picket line prevented the company from obtaining supplies or shipping their products.

He made a .similar reference to navy officials.  The labor chief also said the seamen were not hopeful of getting any better settlement in the controversy from the government than from the ship operators.  C urran said repeatedly that all the maritime workers want is "the same consideration as any other citizen” in wages and hours matters. Ile said that at present seamen are exempted from federal wage and hour .provisions.  Lacked Wartime Protection  He also spoke out bitterly against what he called a lack of protection for maritime workers during the war.  He said that such workers who were injured received none of the benefits accorded members of the armed forces.  At this point. Rep. Buck (R.-N.Y.) interposed to say that the house* merchant marine committee will approve soon a “GI bill of rights for maritime workers.”  Curran commented that “we have been working for this bill i?ght'^ arS  and I hope you are  More details of Hie latest gov-oi nu tent compromise came into the open, and it seemed to be gaming in favor.

Advocates parked themselves to await either (I) public clamor or 12) another major strike crisis before renewing their efforts to get a long-range bill on the statute books.  Leaders of the campaign reported they are hopeful that a "wave of public reaction” may develop against President Truman’s veto of the Case bill and the house’s refusal to override him.  They said that apparently onlv if such a demand develops, or if a new big tie-up occurs, can they muster the votes to guarantee enactment of a permanent regulatory measure this year.  These views were expressed to newsmen by both democrat and republican spokesmen for the bipartisan bloc which supported the Uase bill and wants it or some similar legislation enacted soon. They asked that their names not be used.  Some of these legislators still favor tying in the Case proposal w'lth Mr. Truman’s emergency strike control measure, which is  (Continued on Page 2, Column 2)  Prisoner Killed And ll. i Deputy b  Critically Wounded  KANSAS CITY, Has., June 12. —ID—A federal prisoners attempt to overpower two officers faking him to Leavenworth touched off a gun battle in the narrow confines of a motor car that resulted in his death and the wounding of a deputy United States marshal and another prisoner.
