Political Pace Grows Hotter Two Weeks to Go Until Election; County Commis- sioner Races Spur Interest The beat of the political tom- toms is sounding closer and loud- er and will gain in volume daily with the July 2 primary election only two weeks from the coming Tuesday. The campaign is just entering the final stretch drive, is past the casual, unhurried stages and is now getting down to the earnest business of lining up votes from among a population that hasn't swung too evidently in any di- rections yet. Locally the prospect brightens for a fairly heavy vote. Political rallies were held last week at Vanoss and Sto'newall and are scheduled for Tuesday night, June 18, at Roff, and Thursday night, June 20, ,at Byng. In the county 'the campaigning is concentrated on the three coun-. ty commissioner1 candidacies. Registration, for the July 2 vote continues, with the registration period fending next Saturday, June 22. As is usual when there is a governor's race, that part of the I campaign sets, the pace for the others. By press, radio, personal 'contact and by organizing of I workers, the leading seekers af- ter the gubernatorial chair are j seizing the attention of the vot- i ers. The congress race also has its share of concern. And so confused are political lines this year, fewer than usual at this stage of the campaign are willing to venture any bold pre- dictions on outcome, other than the candidates themselves and their working- supporters. 19 Children Will Pay Him Tribute ST.

Joe Bush Leaves to Be Head Of Lubbock Memorial Hospital Molotov In Switch Over Austria How Ready to Discuss Austrian Problem But Wants Close Watch Kept on Italy By JOSEPH DYNAN PARIS, June .15, Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov agreed today to add Austria to the foreign ministers conference agenda, then insisted that the Ita- lian .political situation be watch- ed to prevent a regrowth of fas- cism into full scale civil war, American and British informants said. In a sudden and surprising con- cession as the ministers reopened their discussions on peace treaties with former enemy states, Molo- tov reversed soviet policy as ex- pressed throughout sessions last month and consented to study Austria as "a problem." i, Molotov objected to confining the Austrian question to the American-sponsored draft treaty which Washington had circulated among the other Russia and Britain. Must Prevent Fascism He maintained that recent events in Italy reflected an at- tempt by monarchists and fascists to overthrow the republic, and cited the declaration of. Moscow in 1934 to justify allied inter- vention in Italian affairs to pre- vent, a rebirth'of ican informants said. In 1943 the foreign ministers of Britain, the United States and Russia issued a declaration on Italy saying that fascism must be destroyed and the Italians given an opportunity to have represen- tative government. The Soviet foreign minister asked the council to add the Ita- lian situation to the agenda as a preliminary to intervention if events justified such a course. U. S. Not Convinced U. S. Secretary'of State James F. Byrnes replied that the Unit- ed States had no objection if events really Justified such an-. tion, but added that official in- formation available to .the United States showed that the Italian government'-now had the situa- tion in hand and was successfully upholding the republic, American sources said. The suggestion to place Austria on the agenda as a "simple prob- lem" was made by the French, and Molotov concurred. Austria was placed on-the agenda for dis- cussion after consideration of peace treaties with Italy, Bul- garia, Romania and Hungary, and a study of the German prob- lem. The Italian political prob- lem will follow .Austria, The ministers met for two and a half bourse in their initial ses- sion, then adjourned until Mon- day. Optimism Rises Molotov's concession on Aus- tria; which the United States views-as the key to a settlement in central Europe, injected an up- surge of optimism in conference circles. As they began their conference some informants expressed the belief that the United States had prepared a dramatic move which lead either to a satisfac- tory compromise or a complete break with the system of major power unanimity. Joe Bush, who has been sup- erintendent of Valley View hospi- tal for almost three years, leaves today for Lubbock, Tex., where he comes administrator of the 250 bed Lubbock Memorial hospital. Mrs. Bush and the children will join him at Lubbock in the near future. Miss Ann Moreland, superin- tendent of nurses at Valley View, will be in temporary charge of the hospital hero until a succes- sor to Bush has been selected. She has had administrative ex- perience at other places, includ- ing service as hospital superinten- dent. Bush brought Valley View through some of the most diffi- cult years of its lat- ter part of the when nurses were almost unobtainable, some supplies were difficult to get and an increasing number of people had learned to make use of the advantages of hospitalization when .ill. An extensive program of re- painting and repair is almost completed now, lacking some.out- side painting of the main building and the garage.

Parents Share Blame Chief Blake says that juvenile car stealing is uncalled for and is going to stop. He says that some of the delinquency can be blamed on the parents of the juveniles for not keeping a closer check on them.

Seamen Vote Work Return Pacific Coast Still Para- lyzed, AFL Official Settlement Nothing to Him By TJie Associated Prill America's merchant fleets be- gan to move again last (Sat.) night along the Atlantic sea- board, the gulf coast and the Great Lakes as seamen voted overwhelmingly to accept the maritime strike settlement reach- ed in Washington just before the Friday midnight deadline, Th-; giant harbors of New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Balti- more returned to normal, and full operations were resumed at the ports of Charleston, C. C.( and Savannah, Ga. Activities picked up rapidly at Mobile, Ala., on the gulf coast, when seamen received official notice that the last-minute settle- ment, which did not come in time to avert a walkout, had been ap- proved by the seven-union CIO committee for maritime unity. Great Lakes shipping at Cleve- land got back on schedule when union members ratified the pact. Pacific Coast Balky Pacific coast ports, however, remained in a slate of paralysis although the coast negotiating committee urged longshoremen to expedite voting on the Wash- ington settlement so that, if ap- proved, work could be resumed Monday. Harry Lundeberg, ex- ecutive secretary of the AFL Sailors Union of the Pacific, con- tinued independent negotiations with the Pacific American Ship- owners Association, declaring: "The Washington settlement means nothing to me." However, longshoremen in Seattle, Los Angeles and Port- land voted to resume work Mon- day. New Yorkers Accept It Five union groups in New City, comprising all ele- ments involved in the walkout there, voted yesterday to end the stoppage and accept the settle- ment. The unions claim a mem- bership of in the nation's largest port. About 500 seamen of the Na- tional Maritime union in Phila- delphia voted to ratify the agree- ment and the port returned to normal. At Baltimore merchant seamen voted overwhelmingly to accept the terms and prepared to return, to work immediately. At Charleston, S. C., seamen af- filiated with the CMU ratified the Washington agreement and re- turned to their jobs. However, the local NMU committee rec- ommended negotiations be re- opened for a 40-hour work week and a six-hour day. Striking seamen at Savannah returned to their ships. Anthony Lucio, NMU post ag- ent at Charleston, S. C., called off picket lines pending the outcome of the voting. Shipping remained stalled. Port activities were normal at Mobile when seamen, who had been on a standby basis, went back to work after notification of the settlement. The walkout lasted two hours in Boston, involving 750 men. They soon drifted back to their vessels following NMU ratifica- tion there. Senmer. at Norfolk remained on their ships awaiting confirm- ation of settlement. Port activities were normal at New Orleans, according to NMU officials, stand-by workers re- sumec their duties. WASHINGTON, June Truman today nomin- ated Homer A.
