The re- sumed formal social stale calen- dar will continue- through Feb. 18 with four additional for the cabinet, the chief justice, the president pro tt-mpore of the senate, and of the speaker of the five receptions. Brazilian Ambassador First The dc-cision to hold two diplo- matic dinners was prompted by increased size of the diplo- matic corps. To the first dinner was bid the dean of the corps, Carlos Martins. Ambassador of Brazil, and Madame Martins. Be- ginning with him as number one, the invitation list included the odd numbers in length of diplo- matic S. 7 and so on. To the second dinner will come the oven 4, 0 and ?o on. The guests assembled in the east room where they were erected by the president and Mrs. Truman. The first lady wore a black velvet gown with a .short tram. Margaret Truman, their 22- year-old daughter who bar, been in New- York, did not attend. In the entrance way to the state dining room were baskets of red carnations, and in bowls in alcoves along the hall were deep red roses.

Henry Harap, Peabody Teachers college, Nashville, Tenn., stated that he had never before seen a more energetic and enthusiastic group than the one assembled there, He said that if the plans for work groups were successful, the conference held here would serve as a model for the other districts all over the state of Ok- lahoma. The principal criticism given by Harap of the present status was that the superintendents of various schools are too sharply separated from the teachers col- leges. Would Have Lists Handy He suggested that the superin- tendents choose certain instruc- Itors in the teachers colleges as agents for them, to tell them of outstanding pupils and then the superintendent should make a note in a catalog. When the need arose for the hiring of an indivi- dual of certain qualifications, he would have a list in his catalog.

Committee Overrides Soviet On Troop Tally By MAX HAHREL90N LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Nov. political committee of the United Nations assembly today over-rode Soviet'opposition and approved1 a British resolution declaring the proposed interna- tional troop inventory nnd the question of arms reductions were parts of a single general question. Voting paragraph by paragraph on a British amendment to the original Soviet proposal for a troop census, the Si-nation com- mittee decided by 33 to 17 that the two issues were separate as- pects of the same general sub- ject. France voted with Russia in opposition and the other three members of the Big Five voted for the British proposal. The committee then quickly approved by a vote of 36 to 12 the second paragraph of the Brit- ish proposal, which declared that the troop inventory was "the first step" toward disarmament talks and was needed to help set up the U. N.'s proposed interna- tional police force. Russia and France also voted against this. The next three paragraphs, which were similar to those pro- posed by Russia, were approved without opposition. They pro- vided for reports on troops in both enemy and friendly slates and for reports on air and naval bases maintained abroad by any country. Summing up their positions be- fore the voting, the United States and Great Britain called on the committee to override Soviet ob- jections and broaden the troop inventory to include all forces at home as well as those abroad. Wires Strung For Christmas Lighting Joycees Do Work Prelim- inary to Big Decoration Job of Sunday Preliminary work to the dec- oration of Ada streets for the Christmas season started Tues- day morning when workmen be- gan stringing wire across the streets in downtown Ada. The wire is a necessary part of the fixtures as all of the over- head lighting and other decora- tions are strung on it. After the wire has been stretched across the streets, Junior Chamber of Commerce members will find their job somewhat easier, but still it is a long hard task that will possibly be completed before Monday of next week. Junior Chamber of Commerce members Sunday will be busily engaged in putting up the decor- ations. Blessing In Disguise CHICAGO, dimout in Chicago has put a crimp in one business that is most satisfying to police. In the two nights of the dim- out, Deputy Chief of Detectives John Warren said, there has been a sharp decrease in burglaries, holdups and other crimes. Harap stated that from each of the separate groups that met Tuesday afternoon and during the panel numerous original ideas were given for the successful op- eration of work or study groups. These groups will submit plans ,for the selection of leaders in the jtcachcrs schools and for bringing 'out the innate abilities of the stu- dents. In this way, more qualified and appropriate teachers could be selected. More Conferences Planned If the superintendents would use the catalog phm suggested by Harap, there would be no delay in procuring a new teacher when the need arose. As it is now, teachers are recommended by a council and much valuable time is lost in getting the teacher, he. contends. At intervals throughout the rest of the year, various groups will convene at East Central to make plans for work groups. The next meeting will be that of the Classroom Teachers, to be held the first or second week in Jan- uary. Krug Called by Committee For Questioning About Strike Jailed Again, With Six Marriage Tries Robertson Had Three When Only 17 PROVIDENCE, R, I., Nov. 27, A. Robertson, 23, who at the age of 17 had collect- ed three wives without benefit of divorce, was in .jail today af- ter allegedly having run his string of martial ventures to six. He was held in for trial utter arraignment in dis- trict court yesterday on big- amy charge. He had the assurance of his sixth wife, June Ivy Castranova Robertson, that she was going to stick by him "because he is so romantic." He received the pledge after embracing her and describing her ".the best of all" shortly before arraignment. Police said that three of Rob- ertson's marriages, two 'in Kan- sas City and one in Corpus Chr- isti. Texas, had been annulled, but a previous union in Spartan- burg, S. C., t and subsequent Springfield, Mass., marriage still are intact. Robertson, known in the mid- dle west as the crooning lover, was released from Kansas refor- matory at Hutchinson a year ago on his promise to return to South Carolina and sing his way into the good graces of the first o( his spouses. Reformatory records showed that after his first venture Rob- ertson, then 17, married three other young women witfein three months in Texas and Kansas, and served 22 months in Hutchinson Institution for Polygamy. -------------r------------- TULSA, Okla., Nov. 27, The Klar Jewelry store on Main street was robbed last night by two men who escaped with and jewelry.

Committee Wonts To Know Why Big Pipelines Not Carrying Natural Gas WASHINGTON, Nov. an unprecedented action, a congressional committee sent out the interior Krug. Krug, carrying the brunt of the government's buttle against John L, Lewis, was commanded to ap- pear before the house surplus property investigating committee at 2 p.m. (EST) Monday for ques- tioning about the coal strike. The committee voted unani- mously to draw the subpoeanae when Krug failed yesterday to ap- pear in response to i.m "invita- tion" issued two hours earlier. The committee) wanted to know why the war-built "big inch" and "little inch" pipe- lines are not moving natural gas from the southwest to the coal- short east. Congressional parliamentarians told newsmen they could not re- call, a committee of congress ever previously having subpoenaed a member o fa president's official family. Senator Wiley senior republican on the judiciary com- mittee, commented that "this raises a very serious question whether congress should interfere with the executive, nnd whether it has authority to compel the at- tendance of a cabinet officer. It: might involve our system of checks and balances." However, Krug indicated he would not seek to bring any con- stitutional question to a show- down, An aide explaicd that the sec- retary had been in conference with attorney general Tom Chirk discussing government strategy in the coal crisis, when the com- mittee sent its invitation, "The secretary had offered be- fore the subpoena was issued to appear before the committee on Monday, and he will appear Mon- this spokesman tolds news- men. Asserts That Early Walkout A Mistake Goldsborough Holds That Norris-La Guordia Act Doesn't Apply In This Case WASHINGTON, Nov. 27, Federal Judge T. Alan Golds- borough today ordered a ton-day extension of his order of Nov. 18 which was designed to avert a soft coal walkout. The extension was ordered at the request of Assistant Attorney General John F. Sonnctt, who broke into John L.. Lewis' con- tempt hearing just 20 minutes be- fore the order was due to expire at 3 p. m. Sonnctt interrupted a lengthy argument by Joseph Padway, AFL general counsel, who was seeking dismissal of the contempt action against the United Mine Workers and their president. The original order instructed Lewis to withdraw his Nov. 15 notice terminating the TJMW's contract with the government. WASHINGTON, Nov. 27, Federal Judge T. Alan Golds- borough said today John L. Lewis and his mine workers "are guilty of contempt of court" if it is proved legally .Ihey disregarded his order against a coal mine walkout. In those words, Gpldsborough indicated that his decision in the contempt case against Lewis and his miners would not be Influenc- ed by the'union's claim that the stop-strike order violated the Norris-LaGuardia anti-injunction act. Regardless of whether or not I the Norris-LaGuardia act applies in the soft coal case, Golds- borough said, no one can disobey a restraining order. Would Menu Anarchy "If that could be done we would have the judge com- CHICKASHA, Nov. 27, Maria Cristina San Jose, Costa Rica, has arrived here to teach Spanish at Oklahoma Col- lege for Women.

"Thtit, in this court's opinion, Is the law." Lewis, who snt stony-faced with his attorneys and the UMW so far have made no attempt to show that they tried to obey the judge's runtrainiiiH order ofNov. 18, which instructed the UMW chief to wilhdrnw his notice to the government that their work- ing agreement was ending Nov. 20. Shortly after his sharp interjec- tion, Goldsborough recessed court at p. m. and cleared the room. The whole morning hnd been taken up with argu- ments of tliroe Lewis- lawyers seeking to win dismissal of the contempt action. AFL Counsel Sees Differently Prior to the recess, Joseph Pad- way, general counsel of the AFL, !appearing in a demonstration of [AFL-solidarity behind Lewis, dis- jngreed1 with Colclsborough's nniil- lysis of the.lifw. Padway told the that Lewis' attorneys had ;advised the mine worker's chief that he was within his Hunts in disregarding the restraining ord- :cr. The justice drew a laugh when he remarked dryly: "The cemetery is full of people who took the doctor's advice." At another point, Goldsborough remarked that. Lewis and the United Mine Workers made "a very great mistake" in walking out before the courts ruled on their contract dispute with the government. Also, he said, the transfer of 500 policemen from the day shift to night duty may be responsible for the curtailed activities of bandits.

Food Shortages Likely in Big Cities If Strike Is Prolonged Food Processing Plants Depend on Coal, Transportation Would Continue in Better Shape Than Power Sources By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON, Nov. 27, Food shortages may develop in major cities, agriculture depart- ment officials said today, if there is a prolonged coal strike. They told reporters they fore- saw no immediate disruption in processing and distributing sup- plies, nut that should the strike continue several weeks, short- ages would become acute in many areas, particularly in big cities distant from major produc- tion sections. Drastic curtailment of rail shipments of livestock could bring on a meat shortage more severe, they said, than that which developed before the lifting of pPA price controls. While much livestock is moved to market by trucks, the latter might be re- stricted for the want of gasoline normally moved by coal-burn- ing locomotives. Fruits, Vegetables First Officials said the effects of the strike will be fell first and most sharply in transportation of citrus fruits and fresh vege- tables from Florida, Texas and California; Most of the nation's food pro- cessing plants depend upon coal. Hence, a prolonged shortage of fuel would force many such plants to curtail their operations not close, In this category are dairy pro- ducts manufacturing plants, oil- seed crushing plants, refrigera- tion plants for perishable pro- ducts, sugar refineries, flour mills, nnd meat packing plants. Some Milk Areas Threatened Officials said milk production might be seriously affected in areas where dairymen are de- pendent upon feed supplies ship- ped in by rail, much of the- e.i.n depends on grains grown in the midwest. They said a long stoppage of corn production would make an already bad shortage of food fats and oils considerably worse. They reported that some West Coast Copra crushing plants al- ready have hern closed, anrt that plants for crushing soybeans, fliixsced and cottonseed face the sumo prospect. The effect of the sti'ikc on food exports will depend, they said, on the length of the strike. They said rail movement of foot! to ports probably won'l he ham- pered for a time. Shortage of coal for processing plants, or cur- tailment of electrical energy for such plants, may have more ser- ious repercussions on exports than transportation difficulties. Farm Needs Endangered The strike will seriously cur- tail the production of farm mach- inery, fertilizers and insecticides needed for next year's produc- tion if it lasts very long, offici- als said. _ It might also result in restric- tions on rail transportation of development which could affect the supply of food containers. The tobacco industry might also be affected since coal is needed for re-drying plants as well as tobacco product manu- facturing plants.
