Hid it not been for Mrs. J. G. Cable of Denton, we might not hive known about Col. Tom Cole's search for more wolf hounds way up in Kansas. Mrs. Cable, a former Kansan. receives the lola, Kan., 'newspaper, so sent us a clipping of the Colonel's trip and nil interview in that paper: M. T. Cole, 70-year-old Texas cattleman, breezed into the lola police station this morning for as- sistance in running down six wolf hounds and their owner, Earl Kirk- cr of Baldwin. Cole wants to buy the hounds because with cattle prices being what they are he plans to devote more time to hunting It Beems that Kirker ran an ad- vertisement in a dog magazine of-j fering to sell the six wolf hounds i and red fox Walker Hounds. Cole' made a-date to meet him in lolai-v HJrr's- Bolivar, was des The filibuster fight seemed likely to be the only concrete business to come before the new Congress this week. Senate and House had a date, to meet in joint session today for the formal counting of Electoral College votes which will make Dwight D. Eisenhower the next President. Tomorrow they will re- ceive President Truman's final State of the Union message, but he won't deliver it in person. Fri- day the Truman budget message Storage Shed Razed By Fire A storage shed belonging to J. on the day after Oiristrnas.

Two trucks were sent to fight the fire, but it had gained so much headway by the time they aVrived that the shed and its contents were practically a total loss. Tools, toys, furniture and the miscellaneous articles usually stoV ed in barns were destroyed. Ori- gin of the fire had not been de- termined today. A booster pump truck roared to the scene of a grass fire three miles east of the city on the Old McKinney Road Monday afternoon and general store where it would be mighty, easy for two dog lovers to pick up each other's scent. However, after strolling along Ma's streets for an hour or so this morning, Cole had caught nary a whiff of a wolf hound or a man who might have half dozen of them for sale. So he turned to the police for help. "I reckon that this will more or less establish me as a worthy Cole, who hales from Denloo opined as he drew from his wallet a receipt acknowledging Shut the blaic was under control his contribution to the Eisenhower- Mxon campaign fund.

Page 2 when firemen reached the scene Apparently a passing motorist or neighbors turned in the alarm, but the owner of the property had the dry grass "back-fired" and under complete control, it was reported. Otherwise, most of the work was ieing done behind the scenes to- ward completing the organization f the GOP Congress, which met or the first time on Saturday. :omrhittee assignments were the biggest and touchiest problem. In the filibuster scrap, the issue s a move by_ self-syled libe'ral Northern senators to make it easi- er to muzzle the endless debate with which Southern senators in the past have talked to death civil rights bills. Anti-lyhching "anti-poll' >ills, and proposals to forbid racial discrimination i n employment, have been victims of filibusters. Even stauchest civil righls sup- porters conceded they have prac- tically no chance to win. Taft is seeking to prevent the Vow from blossoming into a full-fledged fill luster which could paralyze the Senate for weeks and tie up the legislative program of the incom- ing Eisenhower administration. Sen. Dirksen one of Taft's lieulenanis, is reported to be drafting a civil rights bill around which he expects the GOP to rally measure seeking to dis- courage racial discrimination in employment without providing for criminal prosecution of offenders Its de'.ails have not been made public. In that connection, Rep. Sam Rayburn of Texas, dean of all Democrats in Congress, said yes- terday he expects that any civil rights program which Eisenhower proposes will help unite the Dem- ocrats. "Some Democrats who hated President Roosevelt and Truman because of their civil righls pro- posals will now start hating Presi- dent Eisenhower for the same Raybum said in an in- terview on the eve of his 71st birthday today.

(the Dutch- man) Grunewald for "generous" support in that election year. McCarthy handed reporters the copy shortly after he asked the Senate rules committee to look into a political contribution to Sen. Monroney (D-Okla) which McCar- thy said was solicited from Grundewald. Grunewald, mysterious Washing- ton figure, was re-indicted here yesterday for contempt of Con- gress for refusing to answeV ques- tions of a House committee inves- tigating tax scandals. The Truman letter, as released by McCarthy, follows: November 24, 1948 Dear Mr. Grunewald: 1 have heard the generqus way in which you expressed con- fidence in my leadership and want you to know of my heartfelt appre- ciation. I am mrfre grateful than I can say. The Democrat Party myst go forward with progress and tlfe sup- port which you gave so whole- heartedly gives me strength and courage and renewed faith in tiie principles for which our party must always stand. Very siacereiy yours, Harry S. Truman. McCarthy refused to tell TO'AVOID KOREA DJJTY Wave Of Army Desertions Called 'National Disgrace' LOUISVILLE, Ky. Wl-The Ixiuis- ville vfimes reported today that desertions from the armed forces of the United States have reached "alarming proportions." The situation has Become so had, the newspaper said in a copy- righted article, that a well-in- formed Army colonel called it "a national disgrace." It said the wave of runaways is motivated, in a large number of cases, by the desires pi young men to get dishonorably discharged and avoid .service in Korea. In Kentucky alone, the article said, from to deserters are tracked down each year and other hundreds still roam the' coun- try. It quoted military men as say- ing the situation is proportionately as bad in the other 47 states. Ac- curate figures on the other slates are unavailable, however, because the Defense Departmnt has re- fused to make them public. The Times said it had 'learned, however, that since the fall of 1950, the Ft. Knox stockade seldom has contained fewer than WO to GOO prisoncVs. all of them deserters and AWOLs." Richard Harwood, Times staff writer who wrote the article, said: "As of two months ago. at least 700 soldiers and sailors were hid- ing out in Kentucky cities, on farms and in rural communities. Some of them deserted years ago. Some .of them live almost like an- imals in caves and abandoned coal mines. Many of them are pro- tected and hidden fay relatives and friends." Nationally, Hanvood w r o te, Ask Support Of Currency WASHINGTON Oirkscn (Si-Ill} predicted today that "hell will.pop" in Corigresi if any pro- posal for S. support of British currency comes out of the Eisen- hower-Churchill conference. Dirksen told a 'reporter he docs not believe President-elect Eisen-; hpwer made any commitments in his conversations with Prime Min- ister Winston Churchill yesterday. the Illinois sen- said, "1 snail "be interested civilian persons, imply confirms to whether Mr. Churchill sub- makes any. proposal for a gift of American gold to support enough factc are known to justify, the estimate of some military men that on any given day of the year enough able-bodied men to make, up two complete combat divisions are classified as deserter j or AWOL.
