Oklahoma — Fair tonight and taecnesday; slightly warmer except Panhandle tonight  today he was beaten insensible in a jail at Gulfport, Miss., July 2 after trying unsuccessfully to vote.  The senate committee investigating Senator Theo G. Bilbos primary campaign tactics heard this veteran, Richard E. Daniel, after two others testified they had been refused registration after being asked a number of questions on government.  Both said they bt lieved the examination procedure was inspired by Sen. Bilbo’s campaign advice to local officials for handling would-be negro voters, quoted as, ‘‘ask them questions they can’t answer.”  Daniel said he tried to vote at tho Gulfport City hall but was told * you are in the wrong place.”     K   As he was leaving the building. he said, two men named Estes and Allen struck him and said, ‘‘take off that damn hat and don’t let us catch you in here with it on.” Daniel said all the other men in the room were wearing hats.  Daniel, a slight, neatly-dressed man. said he made no resistance and left, but was overtaken a short distance outside the building by the same two men with a policeman named Williams. He said he was taken to jail and that as soon as he arrived there Williams, without saying a word, began beating him about the head and body with his fists.  “That last lick was in the stomach,” Daniel said, declaring he lost consciousness and that when he revived, he was taken to a cell. When a lawyer arranged bail several hours later, he said, he learned he had been charged with being drunk and disorder-  iy.  Daniel produced from a small handbag a pair of trousers, shirt and necktie spattered with about a dozen brown stains he said were caused by blood that came from injuries to his nose and elsewhere received during the beating.  The hearing broadened today into an investigation of the handling of would-be negro voters by local officials.  CHECKER MEETJANh 4-5  OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 3.

It was his first meeting with reporters since the foreign ministers council opened here a month ago.  Near German Discussion  He made these major disclosures:  1. The foreign ministers council, in his opinion, may wind up this week the peace treaties for Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Finland and proceed at once to a discussion of the German question.  2. On Germany, Byrnes intends to insist, as he had previously said he would, on a discussion of  Germany’s western frontiers _  chiefly whether France should get the Saar and have the Ruhr internationalized.  (Diplomatic authorities said since French president-premier Georges Bidault is not attending the Now York four-power meeting. France would oppose any such important talks on Germany here and the Big Four probably will agree to delay the boundarv talks.)  3. The United States will ask that the Austrian question be taken up here. The main issue, diplomatic informants said, is whether an arrangement can be made for the early withdrawal of Russian and other allied troops from Austria.  4. Byrnes is adhering strictly to his policy — contrary to what the Russians want — that the Allied powers should not take any German reparations from current German production. The Russians are known to want an agreement by which they might collect reparations for many years to come.  5. The probable result of the four-power talks on Germany here will be the appointment of a commission of deputies to do the spade work for a foreign ministers’ meeting in Europe early next year. Byrnes will favor hearings on the German question for Belgium, The Netherlands, Czechoslovakia, Poland and Luxembourg, all of which have asked to be heard, but it is uncertain whether any of them will be allowed actually to participate in the German discussions.  Byrnes said there were about seven questions into which the deputies should go in blocking out the future of Germany and, while he did not enumerate them, he made clear that they would include the boundary issues and Probably the kind of government which Germany ought to have, v Two Kinds of Imports  The agreement provides for two classes of imports into the merged zone — those such as food and medicine for prevention of disease and unrest and those for the restoration of peaceful  December 5, 6 and 7. East Central State college will hold its annual debate tournament and speech contests. This tournament is one of the largest of its kind in the southwest.  D. J.

The deadline on entries was today.  rooms needed  Dr. D. J. Nabors, speech director at East Central, Tuesday sent out an SOS for rooms to be occupied by visiting debaters from Thursday through Saturday. Several groups have obtained accommodations in local hotels, hut about IOO visiting students will require places to stay during the tournament. Anyone having rooms to rent to students can telephone 3040 and leave information.  Debate teams from Texas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Arkan sas and Oklahoma are entered. Northeastern State college at Tahlequah, Okla., will probably have the largest representation with 21 students. The number from each school ranges from 3 to 20. Nabors expects a total of around 150 to be present.  Variety In Contests  There will be a large variety of contests, so that students who excel in any particular field will have a chance to compete. Such contests as impromptu speaking. story telling book review, poetry reading, poetry interpretation, radio speaking and others will be held.  The debate tourney will be in the limelight. The subject chosen for debate is: "Resolved, that labor should be given a direct share in management of industry.” The fin I rounds of tho debate will be on Saturday afternoon.  Group Discussion Wednesday  Thursday there w*ill be a group discussion on the question: Should the United Nations be evolved into a world federation government?” This is a question which will be of interest to many.  As a rn* Lr of courtesy as host, no East Central students will be allowed to enter contests. By doing so, no college can say there is any sort of favortism on the part of the judges. This has been a practice of the college for a number of years and all schools who have participated in the E. C. tourney recommend it as being one of the best in the southwest.  Every year, the matter of securing judges for the contests I looms as a nightmare for Mr. Nabors. He urges anyone in this vicinity who has experience in judging or has had adequate schooling or practice in the debate field to qualify, to please contact the college, phone No. 3040, and offer to help.

Calif., Dec. 3, hT*>  —An AFL-called general strike went into effect at 5 a. rn. (7 a. rn., C. S. T.) today threatening a tie up of transportation and industry for 1,000,000 east bay persons and shutting off commuter service for 120.000 across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay bridge.  None of the early morning street cars left their barns and those which had operated on overnight schedules stopped running as the deadline approached.  The key system commuter trains which daily carry thousands to work in San Francisco across the eight and one-half mile Bay bridge did not leave their barns.  Pickets patrolled around the plants of the Oakland Tribune and the Post-Inquirer as well as factories, stores, oars and restaurants.  Alarmed city officials were considering a disaster emergency plan whereby citizens would volunteer to bring in food and other necessities.  “We don’t want trouble but if others do, we’re prepared.” said Ralph York, acting city manager of Oakland.  Oakland’s 500 police were put on 12-hour shifts and days off were cancelled.  The mass walkout stemmed from strikes at two department stores where the AFL Retail Clerks union is seeking contracts. Police convoyed 12 truckloads of merchandise through picket lines to the tw*o downtown stores Sunday.  Last night the AFL central labor council and AFL building trades council set in motion orders to crafts to “take a holiday” today.  The Alameda county CIO council announced that CIO members would not pass through picket lines.  The walkout threatened to stop deliveries of such essentials I  forrrd fmt of ’ j(>bs  as food, milk and gasoline. Un ion members arranged a permit system for deliveries to hospitals, institutions and emergency cases.

Half of U S. Army Is Now Overseas  No Flan to Reduce Forces in Japan, Germany  HONOLULU, Dec. 3. ^—Approximately half of the United States army now is overseas and "so far as I know there is no plan to reduce forces either in Germany or Japan,” says Gen.  Thomas C. Handy, deputy chief of staff.  He said in an interview last night that "we have reached the minimum” of occupation troops in Japan, although he cited no figures. (General MacArthur, months ago. estimated that 200,-000 would be necessary.)  There are* proportionately more troops in Germany than in Japan, he added, because Japan is not split into zones and has an efficient central government.  The army’s biggest problem, he declared, is that "we lack trained personnel. But I can say we are on the upgrade. We are doing something about our problems.”  En route to Washington after  touring the Pacific and Orient, the stockpiles probably will* take General Eisenhowers deputy  jCare G f  the neec j St  Lorince added  MTM-NrM    I    Z.\ tZ .^LL     an ? coun-  In Colorado whore lr.-.-* won-1    !L.    n' V ''’’i’ '    * h   being cut for fuel in the Denvei w    ' should be  sheller belts, tho Colorado Furl    '    iL.    ‘L.
