The committee will begin hear- ings on the charter on Monday, July 9, under rules designed to hold testimony to a minimum, Chairman Tom Connally (D.-Tex.) announced. Aged Senator Hiram W.

Burton K Wheeler (D.-Mont.) looked on as probable leader of an anti-ratifica- tion fight, told reporters during the week that as far as he was concerned there would be no or- ganized opposition. He said he had not made up his own mind yet what position he would take. Later two other senators, ex- pected to battle vigorously agains U. S. entry into the projected world league, signified they wer for it. Sen. Robert M. LaFollette (R.-Wis.) said he definitely in tended to vote for ratification Sen. C. Wayland Brooks (R.-I11. said as matters stand the charter might' also get his support. Gives "Up Lost Cause Now the 78-year-old Johnson who throughout his career ha unded direful warnings agains inous" alliances with foreign Bowers, showed signs that he, too had given up what was obviously a lost cause. "I've read it (the charter through and find some things tha should be Johnson tol reporters. He refused to amplif} Asked point-blank, however whether he would vote for th charter if there were no amend ments or reservations, he said "possibly." The foreign relations committee of -which Johnson is a member is expected to consider the pos sibility of limiting hearings to tw weeks. President Truman is sched uled to submit the treaty formal- ly to the senate Monday with ulti- mate ratification by the neces- sary two-thirds vote considered tain. A minister of the gospel who left Ogden last week without reser- vations found himself in a predica- ment. I pulled he reports, "and the conductor came along, he said, 'You can't ride this strain on a pass.' I said, 'I can't get off for the train is moving.' He re- plied, 'Alright. I will carry you to the end of my division. There you must get off.' "When we reached the end of the division at Carlin I just forgot to get off, and then went through it all again with the next conduc- tor, and so on until I got to San Trancisco and was worn out." Writing back to a friend in Og- den he must have quickly forgot- ten his rough experience, for he sends this: "Don't grieve over yesterday; Gather its tender golden memories, Hold them fast within your heart. Each day is but a small A lifetime thou shalt live. Be brave and in each day live thy part; Hold not fears vain regrets, Nor remember with each passing hour The losses of thy yesterdays." In the Ogden terminal there are employed under Supt. R. E. Edene 1500 workers. That is a force double the num- ber employed before the war. Sixty-nine switching crews are handling approximately 9000 cars Va day in the yards. Few terminals in the United States are doing more than the Ogden yards, and the prospects are more is to be required of the serv- ices with hundreds of thousands of troops and their equipment mov- ing to the coast. Many of. the troop .trains are go- ing through without-.Pullmans. Senators are lining up for the United Nations charter and thus early it becomes obvious the docu- ment from San Francisco will be ratified.

Burglars Break Into Firms, Foiled By Alarm The recent wave of burglaries in Ogden city was resumed Friday evening when two business firms were broken into and attempts were made to break into two others. Because of the similarity between these jobs and those, of last Thurs- day morning, police today declared it is their opinion all were com- mitted by the same person or per- sons. Lieut. L. M. Hilton, fingerprint expert of the police department, advanced the theory that the bur- glaries are being committed by Melvin Torkelson, army deserter, who for several weeks had resided' in a hideaway "pent house" atop a boiler in an old heating plant located at the rear of the Berthana roller skating rink. Entered last night were the An- derson Lumber Co. office, 164 Twenty-fourth, and the Kiesel Sales and Service, 2311 Kiesel. At- tempts were made to enter the U. S. forest service garage, 2331 Kiesel, and the McKesson Drug Co., 161 Twenty-fourth. The burglar or burglars netted but approximately from the jobs committed Friday, all of which from a safe in the An- derson Lumber Co. office, as com- pared with a take of about from the six burglaries committed early Thursday morning. The money taken was a "coke" fund used for the purpose of mak- ing loans to employes. An I. O. U. left in the drawer by one of the employes was tossed to the floor near the safe.

It is effective tomorrow and will cost the government about a year under present con- ditions. The new law grants the work- ers affected a basic increase averaging 15.9 per cent. This is graduated, depending upon the total wage of each employe. It is the first general salary boost given government employees since 1923.

Saturday sessions today in an effort, to com- plete action on numerous "must" bills before the new gov- ernment year which begins at midnight. But the southern fight the fair employment practice com- mittee made it practically impos- sible to clear the slate. Leaders expected that filibuster- ing members of the senate would relent long enough to permit final approval of the sec- ond deficiency bill and some of the other appropriation measures including the army bill and the labor- federal security appropriation. FEPO Fight Continues But it appeared that the fight over continuance of the FEPC would not be ended until Monday at the earliest. At that time the senate will vote on a cloture rule to break up the filibustering by limiting debate to one hour per senator. THE FEPC fight in the senate is being made in connection with a bill which carries funds for 16 war agencies. All of them tech- nically will be out of money at midnight. Senator Olin D. Johnson (D-S. C.) had the senate floor todayto continue the FEPC filibuster. Senator Theodore G. Bilbo (D- who started the fight, re- moved himself from the three-day filibuster yesterday shortly before Senator James O. Eastland (D- Miss.) began a scathing four-hour denunciation of the FEPC and what he called its "communistic backing." Reject Compromise Scornfully rejecting compromise efforts of Democratic Leader Al- ben .W. Barkley (D.-Ky.) to give the FEPC a reduced appropriation with no strings attached, Bilbo declared, "They're trying to horse trade and I refuse to trade on such a principle as this." New Cabinet Members WASHINGTON, June 30 (UP) Four new cabinet members take office today in the biggest single shakeup in a president's official family since the late President Roosevelt first took office in 1933. Their inauguration is regarded as a step toward reorganization of the government's executive agen- cies with emphasis on improving administration, of food supply, and labor problems. The incoming cabinet members are Lewis B. Schwellenbach of Washington, who replaces Frances Perkins of New York 'as secretary of -Labor; Robert E.. Hannegan. of Missouri, replacing Frank C. Walk- er of Pennsylvania as postmaster general; Tom C. Clark of Texas taking over from Francis Biddle of Pennsylvania as attorney gen- eral, and Clinton P. Anderson of New Mexico succeeding Claude R. Wickard of Indiana as secretary of agriculture. President Truman still has one cabinet vacancy. He is expected to send the nomination of James F. Byrnes to the senate Monday or Tuesday for secretary of state to replace Edward R. Stettinius, Jr., who resigned'to represent the U. S. hi the new world 'security league.

The commentator, whose re- marks were broadcast by Tokyo radio and heard by United Press, explained that Japan wss forced to use older planes during the Okinawa campaign and save its latest models for the anticipated invasion. "Instead of sending out the most up-to-date and efficient the commentator said, :'The Japs employed older planes, parts for which are not being manufactured at the present time." After citing the delays parts shortage caused in repairing planes, the commentator added: "However, when the time for the decisive battle on the Jap mainland arrives, up-to-date planes will be rushed endlessly from factories while damaged ones will be swiftly repaired with abundant supply parts on hand." Another Tokyo broadcast quot- ed a correspondent of the paper, Mainichi Shimbun, as listing four advantages the Ja.o special attack uaits will enjoy "in -the forthcoming battles on our home- land." They were the utilization of a greater number of planes, in- creased bomb loads, synchroniza- tion of attacks and the speed- ing up of repair work. Boy, 2, Killed in Fall Off Track WILLARD, June Le north: in an attempt to prevent scale transfer of bombed and in- vasion- threatened industries to Manchuria. Japan set up another anti-in- vasion defense command on the main island of Honshu, enemy broadcasts said. This one encom- passes six prefectures of northern Honshu and will be commanded by Gen. Keisuke Fujie, Tokyo said. B-29s Lay Mines Radio Tokyo said 10 B-29s swept across the main Jap home island of Honshu between midnight and one a. m. and sowed mines in the two largest harbors on the north- west 150 miles north, of Tokyo, and Sakata, 85 farther north. It was the first visit to Sakata and their deepest penetration yet of Japan. With the disruption of transportation in southern Japan by heavy air at- tacks, Niigata and Sakata well may be the main ports for the shipment of Jap war plants and personnel to Manchuria. Radio Tokyo revealed the mass industrial movement across the Sea Glider Rescues Shangri-La Castaways had run down a lane_ to meet the father, who was arriving with a load of hay, and the father let them ride on to the house on the run- ning board from which Byron fell.

The first operation yesterday by glider and tow plane rescued a WAC corporal and two army air- men who survived a .transport plane crash into the primitive New Guinea valley 46, days ago., Today the rescuers brought out four Filipino parachute troopers, who were dropped.into the valley 0------------ _..__ to aid the crash survivors, and pain of their wounds, but both nel on the Oranje mountain wall of the valley May 13. They had been 011 an aerial sightseeing tour of the strange area, which has been dubbed "Shangri- La" after the James Hilton book on a Tibetan Utopia. Suddenly they found the charac- ters in the in a place from which' there was no apparent escape. At headquarters here they ,told their story. Dazed and bleeding, they found themselves on the slope near the burning plane. Two other fellow Eastern air force, to drop a bull- to make a regular plane field. But yesterday dawned fair, and it was decided to try with the glider. Capt. Charles J. Scholl of Seattle and his co-pilot, Capt. George Allen of Salem, Ore., dropped the glider "Fanless piloted by Lieut. Henry E. Paver of Baton Rouge, La. The WAC, the two .airmen and two of ..the Filipinos got aboard the glider and the cable was made ready on poles.

Still to be brought'to safety are four other parachuted Filipino troopers and-an army who led the rescue party and superin- tended the construction of an emer- gency landing strip for the glider. WAC Corp. Margaret Hastings, Oswego, N. Y., one, of the three rescued, was named the "Queen of the Valley" during the long ordeal, but she showed scant interest in ever going back to "reign" over the tribesmen. she said, with twinkling eyes and a toss of her windblown hair, "the native women offered to make a but'I refused.

Among the dead was McCollom's twin brother. At-.night they shivered under a collapsed life raft in the rain, and helplessly watched the flares of searching planes. They ate hard candy until they were sick of it. Four days after the crash a flier spotted the yellow craft, and soon food; clothing and medicine were parachuted to them. Two Filipino medical- aid men arrived by para- chute and attended to their com- paratively minor injuries. A walkie-talkie radio was dropped. Capt. Cecil Walters of Portland, Ore., and the Filipino parachute troopers came in and began hack- ing out a glider-landing strip. Cann came to record the scene. While the glider strip was being built, rehearsals were .held near here in picking up a glider with a transport plane and a nylon cable. Accidents and injoiries to crewmen tempted Col: Ray T. Elsmore of Menlo Calif., formerly- of Salt liam McKenzie of LaCrosse, Wis., as co-pilot, skimmed across the val- ley at 20-foot altitude. The hook caught, there was a jerk, the glider was airborne. There followed the fight for alti- tude to get over the peaks, then the easy "downhill pull" to Hollandia. After the tumultuous welcome here and a luncheon of T-bone steaks, the rescued group regaled their rescuers with tales of Shang- ri-La, where life was idyllic but a bore. The natives, they said, were dark-skinned people, averaging about five feet seven inches in height, and awld at the. sight of the white persons they never had seen before. In the thatched huts there were no cooking utensils. Stones served as plates and fingers in lieu of forks. Yet the natives generously offered their 'visitors roast pork and yams. Berlin Zones To Be Seized PARIS, June 30 headquarters announced that Amer- ican, British and French troops will move into Berlin to take over their respective occupation zones beginning tomorrow. At the same time American and British troops will begin with- drawing from the areas they now occupy but which lie within the permanent occupation zone of the Russians. SHEAF authorities said the re- adjustment of occupation forces in Germany was expected to be com- pleted by July 4. of Japan yesterday. By this means, Tokyo said, Japan was preparing to carry on the war even after her homeland plants have been smashed and the country itself in- vaded. Nip Oil Plant Bombed The mining foray came less than an hour after 50 other Superfor- tresses bombed the Nippon Oil company plant at Kundamatsu on the southwest tip of Honshu, pos- sibly Japan's biggest surviving ou refinery. Navy Liberators from Okinawa joined in the bombardment of the Jap homeland yesterday, attacking shipping, warehouses and a rail- way tunnel around Katsuura har- bor southeast of Tokyo. They also sank a small cargo ship south of Honshu and a fishing vessel south, of Shikoku. South of Japan, American ground forces seized their sixteenth island in the Rykyus, Kume, a 21-square- mile chunk of land 50 miles west of Okinawa, 350 miles from China coast and 400 miles soutn- west of Kyushu. Adm. Chester W. Nimitz report- ed in a communique that his troops occupied Kume without finding a trace of Jap soldiers. Radio Tokyo first reported the landing three days ago, but claimed a Jap gar- rison had intercepted the invaders in "heavy fighting." Bloody Auto Found; Murder Indicated POCATELLO, June 30 (AP) An abandoned automobile found on a "lovers' near Ross park had blood stains which Police Chief A. L. Oliver said led him to believe the car "was undoubtedly the scene of a murder." He said the killing might have occurred at some remote spot and the car was later driven here, since the stains appesied to be quite old.
