Oct. 4.—OI*)_  Agriculture department economists said today meal supplies are unlikely to catch up with demand before 1948-and by then people may not be able to afford as imny .{teaks and roasts ar. they would like.  Tnat doubly discouraging forecast for ineat-huiujry Americans ca.ne as the price decontrol board suspended at least until next week a third decision on the future of ceiling prices tor milk and other dairy products, now free of OPA jurisdiction  The agriculture department’s bureau of economics explained its prediction of a slackening meat demand some 12 or 15 months ago hence by s ying that consumer incomes are expected to turn downward in late 1947 or early 1948.  Demand May Drop  Furthermore, the agency said the demand for meat and other foods—now at a record peak— may decline as consumer spending shifts to non-food items, such as automobiles, washing machines, refrigerators, and clothing, as supplies of those goods become more abundant.  The bureau said meat output during the remainder of 1946 may be “relatively low,” reflecting heavy marketings of hogs and cattle in July and August, when there were no price controls, and delayed fall marketings of livestock.  capita civilian supplies may be only as large as this year—or an average of between 140 and 145 pounds a year.  Pork Down, Beef Up  It added that the supply of pork is expected to be smaller than this year but that production of beef is expected to be large, reflecting in turn a tendency among producers to delay marketings of cattle this fall in expectation of possible higher prices.  Sheep and lamb slaughter next year probably will be less than this year, with prospects of a smaller 1947 lamb crop and few'-er lambs to be fed this fall, the bureau said.  On the subject of prices, the report commented that recently established ceilings will permit prices of cattle and hogs to be around IO percent higher, and lambs over 15 per cent higher, than in the first half of 1946.  However, a drop in national income in the second half of 1947 would be accompanied, it said, by declining prices of meat animals, particularly in the fourth quarter when production will be increasing seasonally. The bureau did not amplify its prediction of a lower national income.  Dairy Price Issue Remains  The dairy price issue remained open after the decontrol board announced through its information director, Delmar Beman,  Moving Jews To Palestine  Favors Immediate Immigration of Displaced Jews, Views Sent to Attlee  As for 1947, the report said per > (Continued on Page 2 Column 3)  int el  overio  greatest possible  gasoline. adod 27,000  the ship pounds a1  ne u Of  m  * na >52 i> The e  ii  total weight of 147 000  I pp: ox innately half. 77,-di was gasoline aw pi,ire’ sped down army air forces’ 7 000 foot field runway and onto nrw’s Adjoining .

MARCUS HOOK, Pa., Oct. 4. ‘A* 1 —Seven persons were killed and upwards of 140 others injured by fire and thunderous explosions which roared through a unit of Sun Oil company’s $13,-000,000 aviation gasoline refinery seven hours before subsiding early today.  Sun Vice President Arthur E. Pew. Jr., estimated damage to the world’s largest Alkylation plant at $300,000. He said “a j packing gland which failed, {caused gas to escape and flash,” touching off the series of explosions felt 20 miles away in Philadelphia.  Boiling up in huge clouds of smoke lit by darting tongues of flame, the fire swept unchecked for four hours after the first blast at 6:10 p. rn. .yesterday. It was then brought under control but was not extinguished un this morning.  Many of the injured W'ere volunteer firemen. The heaviest casualty toll occurred when flames, racing out of a pump room, reached a 125-foot fractionating tower. It went up with a roar, the shock rocking the countryside for miles.  All of the deaths occurred in hospitals here and in nearby Chester. Pa. many others of the 69 admitted to hospitals were reported in critical condition.  An eighth man. Leland Bailey, 49-year-old ship’s cook, died during the blaze but a company spokesman said investigation disclosed he slipped into the Delaware river while boarding a ship and drowned. The spokesman discounted first reports that Bailey had been blown overboard by the blast which occurred a half-mile from the vessel.  Nineteen of the fire victims were reported in critical condition and hospital authorities said several were not expected to live. In addition. Joseph Risso, 52, a Marcus Hook policeman, was reported in critical condition after he was struck by an automobile while directing traf fie after the fire.  Three Japs to Die On Gallows Soon For Cannibalism  GUAM, Oct. 4. — (/P) — Three Japanese militarists were condemned today to die on the gallows for cannibalism—a crime so heinous it is covered by no rule of war.     m     -I I-mr..............  The three—a general, a navy captain, and a major—listened unblinking as a U. S. military commission ordered them to die for eating the roasted livers of two U. S. airmen downed on Chichi Jima late in the war.  They were Lt. Gen. Yoshio Taehibana, the army commander; Navy Capt. Shizuo Yoshio, and Major Sueo Matoba, who also was accused of terrorizing his own men with drunken brutalities.  Rear Adm. Arthur G. Robinson, president of the commission, announced that two thirds of the commission of seven concurred in each of the hanging sentences, which now will be reviewed by the secretary of the navy.  The charge of which they were convicted was violating the laws and customs of war. There is charge to fit the crime of nibalism.  Vice Adm. Kunzio Mori, the top-ranking navy commander on Chichi Jima, was sentenced to life imprisonment. He w'as acquitted of any part in the cannibalistic orgy, but was convicted of neglect of duty in failing to protect the executed airmen.  The prosecution had demanded death also for Mori and Army Capt. Kesakicki Sato as responsible commanders. Sato, who relayed orders for the executions, also was given life.  Eight other defendants, convicted of taking part in the executions, w'ere given sentences ranging from* five to 20 years. One defendant was acquitted.  no can  on LAHOMA CITY, Oct. 4, I' The republican central committer has certified Lloyd H.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. <JP»-President Truman called on Prime Minister Attlee of Britain today to open Palestine immediately to Jewish immigrants Horn Europe—without waiting any longer for a British-Jewish Arab settlement of Palestine’s future.  In a public Yom Kippu day statement released here, the text of which was cabled to Attlee, Mr. Truman also endorsed the Jewish agency plan for creation of a Jewish state in an “adequ ate area” of Palestine anet rejected outright the plan for an Arab Jewish division of the Holy Land which Britain and many of Mr. Truman’s own advisees have been supporting.  He reaffirmed his support for the earliest possible immigration of 100,000 Jew's into Palestine, but urged that “substantial immigration” should begin at one before winter brings new suffering to the masses of Jewish homeless in Europe. In this projected endeavor he promised American assistance in the form of shipping and other economic aids.  The president thus divided the Palestine problem into two i parts: immediate and long range. He evidently abandoned the British thesis that some overall settlement must be worked oift before any substantial number of Jewish immigrants could be permitted.  Wants Congress To Act  In addition to promising aid in getting Jews from Europe to Palestine, Mr. Truman also reaffirmed his intention to a s k congress—meeting WfLTanuary —to “liberalize” American immigrations to allow entrance of thousands of additional displaced persons.  ‘Furthermore,” he said, “should a workable solution for Palestine be devised, I would be willing to recommend to the congress a plan for economic assistance for the development of that country.”  Mr. Truman set forth his own view* as follows:  “I. In view of the fact that winter will rome on before the con-f ere nee (Palestine conference in Loifdon) can be resumed, I believe and urge that substantial immigration into Palestine cannot await a solution to the Palestine problem and that it should begin at once. Preparations for this movement have already been made by this government and it is ready to lend its immediate assistance.  “2. I state again, as I have stated on previous occasions, that the qnmigration laws of other countries, including the United States, should be liberalized with a view to the admission of displaced persons. I am prepared to make such a recommendation to the congress and to continue as energetically as possible collaboration w'ith other countries on the whole problem of displaced persons.  “3. Furthermore, should a workable solution for Palestine be devised. I would be willing to recommend to the congress a plan for economic assistance for the development of that country.”  The president’s statement, released by Press Secretary Cheries  G. Ross with the announcement that its contents were cabled to Attlee, expressed Mr. Truman’s “deep regret” that the meetings of the London Palestine conference are not to be resumed until December 16.  The president said that in the light of the “terrible ordeal which the Jewish people of Europe endured during the recent wars” and the crisis now existing,” I cannot believe that a program of immediate action along the lines suggested could not be worked out with the cooperation of ail people concerned.”  He added that “the administration will continue to do everything it can to this end.”  H. M. Supervisors Al Garvin Heeling  Two supervisors of Horace Mann school were in Pauls Valley Friday afternoon attending the Garvin countv teachers meeting, according to Victor H. Hicks, director at Horace Mann.  Mrs. Mildred Hulling.* fourth grade supervisor, and Mrs. Mary Wasson, first grade supervisor, are attending.  The two Ada teachers are conducting clinics in low r er and higher education and visual education.  Fritsche Come to Their Zone, Broke Big Four And French Refuse Von Papen Agreement in Vole  By THOMAS R. REEDY  NUERNBERG. Oct. 4. < V U. S. army authorities said today the British had declined to per nut ll labour Schacht and Hans Fritsche, acquitted of war crimes by the International military tribunal, to enter tin- British occupation zone of Germany.  Lt. (ten. Lucius (’lay, deputy American military governor, un flounced that the French had re jected tile plea of nazi diplomat Franz Von Papen. the third of the acquitted German war leaders, to settle in *the French zone.  They Fear Bavarians  The three acquitted men still were in the Nuernberg palace of justice jail, hopefully awaiting safe conduct out of the American zone. They told attorneys and army officers they feared the treatment they might re ceive at the hands of the Bavarians around Nuernberg, who want to try them under denazification laws.  Col. B. C Andrus, sectility of fieri, said he was anxious to get rid of his ‘‘star boarders,” but would keep them in his custody pending a decision at a higher level.  Meanwhile, attorneys for three additional nazi war leaders and for the SS (elite guard) filed appeals from their convictions with the allied control council. Appeals on behalf of six of the 19 men convicted Tuesday now’ were before the council.  Appeals were filed for Hit ler’s erratic deputy, Rudolf Hess, who was sentenced to life imprisonment; for Ham Frank. Hit ler’s gauletter in Poland, a n d Jew baiter Julius Stretcher, both condemned to hang.  Already on file were appeals for Wilhelm Frick, “protector” of Bohemia and Moravia, nazi philosopher Alfred Rosenberg and Deputy Fuehrer Martin Bor mann, all sentenced to hang. Bormann was tried in absentia. All appeals must be before the council by 3 45 p. m. tomorrow'.  May Provide Safe C onduct  In Berlin U. S. army headquarters said the three acquitted men would be given time to mull over their dilemma and make new requests. It was added that if the requests were acceptable, the men would be given safe conduct to the bord cis of the occupation zone involved, to protect them from violence.  The announcement said if the three elected the lf. S zone they would he given safe con duct to the community involved and police would he intruded to protect them from violence. Headquarters said it remained for the German courts to decide whether any of the three would be tried for crimes within Germany, and that the safe conduct from the prison in no way would interfere with any official German action.

American delegate Willard I Thorp and British spokesman Glenvil Hall botn protested that the amendment was a new article and not a change in an agreed upon portion of the draft.  At one point Australia removed the name of the Soviet Union from the list of members of the proposed body after Russia protested that she was not concerned with non-Russian leparations. v\ hen this led to further protests, A us ti alia re-inserted Russia’s name, whereupon Aru human branded this an “electoral maneuver.”  ( harges Prearrangement  The Australian amendment, as oi lgmallv worded, would have given the chairmanship of the I commission to the United States Wash- i on the ground that the United  the educational advantages of the i n £t° n  planned a new' attempt to States as a non-claimant of repar-  cnd the four-day old shipping Ations and a non-European pow er strike which has tied up 543 ships j had a better “perspective.”  bill must be enlisted on or before midnight of Oct. 5, which is Saturday.
