Temperatures rose quickly from a range that found Dalhart with 50 degrees and Galveston with an before trie power into the public power lines of the Tennessee Valley Authority. The joint committee has postponed until after the Nov. 2 general election its hearings on the politically hot issue of the con-! tract. ^ The new'spaper said copies of the revised contract were mailed to members of the joint committee Monday. Rep. W. Sterling Cole, the com mittee chairman, said at his home in Bath, N.Y., last night that he had not seen the revised contract. He said he would not prejudge it, adding that “any advance criticism of the contract must necessarily be politically inspired. I am confident, however, that it will be a good contract in the best interests of the public welfare.” The Post-Dispatch also said it learned the contract has been approved by the Federal Power Commission, the General Accounting Office and, except for minor details, by the TVA.

Wilson said today that “as far as I know” plans are still on for him to address a Chicago Republican rally tonight. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Secretary of Defense Wilson’s remark about “kennel dogs” prompted a suggestion from Republican Grov. William G. Stratton of Illinois today that the Cabinet member stay away frrnn a fund raising dinner of his own party. Stratton said Wilson’s comment, in a discussion of unemployment, shows Wilson’s views on the subject are so far from those of President Eisenhower’s that he doesn’t qualify to speak for the administration. Both the governor and the secretary were listed to address the 100-a-plate affair in Chicago tonight. Wilson, in Detroit, told newsmen he was surprised at Stratton’s statement. He s a i d he was supposed to leave for Illinois this afternoon and would follow that plan unless there were other developments.

The. “dogs” affair started Monday when Wilson told a news conference in Detroit he has “a lot of sympathy” for the unemployed, but always had “liked bird dogs better than kennel-fed dogs.” He added: “You know, one who’ll get out and hunt for food rather than sit on his fanny and yell.” Teaches Off CrWcs This touched off a flurry of criticism frtwn Democrats, CIO president Walter Reuther and AFL chief George Meany and from a few GOP candidates, who took the view that Wilson’s remark was an unwarranted slap at the unemployed. Wilson yesterday got out a statement that he meant “no invidious comparisons, nor insinuations likening people to dogs in any sense.” He said his remark was intended to underscore his admiration for “spirit and initiative” in jc^hunt-ing, and that “people of the adverse political party” are trying to make capital “on a misinterpretation of the full meaning of what I actually said."
