It's a ‘must' this year for the \ els who are working and learning their trades or professions. La5t \ear it was voluntary.  It IS so necessary ndw that a veteran must take the related classwork or have his subsistence checks stooped.  Next Meeting Thursday At the Tuesday night meeting classes were organized in typing and bookkeeping, according to J. B W atters, head of the classwork program.  All in-training veterans who have not vet reported are urged to be at Ada High school Thurs-day night at 7:30 o'clock. At that time there will probably be classes formed for drafting and elementary electricity.  Those who enrolled Tuesday nigh t will on Thursday night start their courses.  Next week typing and bookkeep. ne classes will start meeting on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights.  Three Classes Every Night In order for all of the almost 4to veterans taking on in-training jobs here .to get in their IOO hours of classwork, there will have to be at least three 25-pup-il classes going every night throughout the year, Watters said Wednesday morning.  For that reason, he and others supervising the program are an-xious to g* t all of the veterans involved ogamzed into classes and the classes functioning as early as possible.

The commission had not yet made a public announcement of its attitude. But AFL and CIO union leaders said a typewritten statement of the commission's pol.cy was circuited at a nego-tiating session late last night. Government officials who asked not to be identified said the same thing.

Need Speedy Fleet The possibilities of employing a speedy, mobile fleet in aft atomic counterattack are promising,” he declared.  Maj. Gen. Lewds B. Hershey war-time director of selective service, urged a universal military training as the best insurance for “our national existence” and scoffed at the idea the atomic age would mean a war involving only a few technicians on the shooting end.  ‘Ip the future.” he said in a prepared talk, “we must train everyone to know what to do to survive.”  Other speakers included Secretary of War Robert P.

Accuse Them of Trying To Moke Trieste Anglo-American Military Bose  By JOSEPH DYNAN  PARIS, Oct. 2 (ZP)—Yugoslavia accused the United States and Gieat Britain before the peace conference today of 'betraying the Big Four agreement on the free state of Trieste in order to establish a British-American military base on the Adriatic.   an  an#ry torrent of rapid-fire French before the Italian political and territorial commission, Yugoslav delegate Pijade declared the "Anglo-Saxon powers” had renounced the “most important” decisions of the Foreign Minister’s Council pertaining to Trieste.  ‘‘Democratic principles, in the British, American and French proposals,” Pijade declared, Have gone with the wind.”  Redoubled At Prison Scene  Would Be “Colony”  4i .Yugoslav delegate assailed the British proposals for a statute governing the new internationalized area of Trieste as putting the port on a par with a British colony. Recalling 4he foreign ministers’ agreement that Trieste’s legislative and executive authority should be organized along democratic lines, Pijade declared: “We cannot see why the people of Trieste should he forced to accept a colonial type regime in a military stronghold.”  He said both the British and U. Proposals for the Trieste statue --there are five different proposals altogether, one from each member of the Big Four and one ii om I ugoslavia — plus speeches yesterday by U. S. Senator Tom ConnalJy and British delegate Gladwyn Jebb. “Reveal that Trieste in their minds is not to become a truly free state, but a military base under an Anglo-American condominium.”  ‘The American, British and r ranch proposals in no way correspond with the Foreign Ministers Council decisions, he added.

In a short tumultous scene chairman Leif Egeland of South Africa, rapped for order at the end of the ten minutes when Pi-attempted to speak above the chairman’s voice. Finally, the commission agreed to grant him two minutes more.  Pijade submitted a Yugoslav proposal for the treaty section on 11 leste providing for economic and monetary union between the free state and Yugoslavia, then urged the commission to leave the drafting of the city’s statute to the foreign Ministers’ Council The United States and Britain ne said, in opposing this economic union, “are erecting a Chinese wail, if not an iron curtain be-Trieste and Yugoslavia.” This is not our last word,” he warned.
