UNRRA Life Growing Short But Hopes Other Agencies Will Take Up Fight on World Needs
By GLENN BABB

Overshadowed bv the noisy peace conference at Paris, another international gathering in Geneva is grappling with the vast dislocations and sufferings left by the war. In the home of
of which governmental are none too rapid.
The Geneva meeting is fifth general council of UNRRA and its last. The three nations which have borne most of the financial burden—the United States, which lias furnished nearly three-quarters of the funds, and
Bell, won easy renomination.
Axtell’? victory in the nation’s top political scrap left him facing another hard battle in November when he will he opposed by tile automatic republican nominee. Albert L. Reeves, Jr.. son of a federal district judge.
Reeves had described the Slaughter - Axtell battle as benefitting him, and Grover Dalton, republican state chairman, had predicted Axtell’.? nomination would assure a November victory for the G. O. P.
Both Axtell and Reeves war veterans.
Axtell Little Experienced Axtell, 37-year-old attorney, was a navy lieutenant, senior grade, when he was discharged the after servin* since 1043. His on-j ly previous public office was as j assistant county prosecutor where he served four years handling cases in rural justice courts.
Reeves, 40, had never sought I office before. He was a lieuton-
tion of European Jews into Palestine and that the land and sea operations involved might in dude a blockade of the coast.
A special meeting of the cabinet was held at No. IO Downing street. Prime Minister Attlee’s official residence, to discuss the problem of Palestine, where some 1.500 illegal immigrants -men and women—were still held aboard ships in Haifa harbor.
They have not been permitted to leave their cramped quarters on the ships, despite unsanitary conditions, pending determination of a policy by the British government.
Quota About Exhausted
A five-year 75,000 immigration quota outlined in a British white paper is about exhausted, and a new policy is to be determined.
Both Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin. attending the cabinet session after an illness which has kept him from the Paris peace conference, and Philip Noel-Bak-cr, minister of state, declined to discuss the meeting. The meeting was attended by Field Marshal Lord Montgomery, chief of the imperial general staff, and representatives of all three fighting services.

In unfolding a detailed story of his incredible criminal career yesterday, he set forth how he knifed Mrs. Ross, a 43-year-old W idow, in her apartment in June of 1945. although he had not been indicted for this murder.
His confession solved the fiendish kidnaping, strangling tnd dismemberment of Suzanne De guar. 6. on Jan 7. and the snooting and stabbing of Miss J ranees Brown. 33, a former vc AVE. on Dec. IO. 1945.

Registration for the convention was from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at which time the first regular session opened by an invocation by Rev. Chester L. Mason, pastor, Oak Avenue Baptist church.
One of the principal speakers on the program was Hon. J. M. Gentry, commissioner of public safetv.
Albeit Trice, Ada attorney, made a 45 minute address on the value of cooperation. After the talk, there was additional discussion about this subject.
D. A. Bryce, special agent in charge of FBI in Oklahoma, presented a discussion on raids and surveillances and a demonstration of the walkie-talkie radio with a view' of its possibility in police communications.
The Wednesday morning meeting was opened by the address and demonstration of Bryce.
The officers voted last year to make their trip to Ada an annual affair and the resolution submitted was readily passed by officers attending.
Incoming Officers Here
Several new* officers are attending the meeting this year to learn the functions of the organization, as those new officers will be taking various offices in January.
The meetings are held as instruction periods for all officers and such meetings are mended by the FBI.
Tile convention will end Wednesday afternoon following a barbecue at the W. A. (Gus) Delaney Lazy D Ranch. A similar program was held last year at Sheep Creek. *
There is whether this can or will be done. Hope for continuation of the fight against the tremendous sum of hunger and homelessness arising from the war rests in various agencies of the United Nations— with which UNRRA has only the slightest connection. But the time left for UNRRA grows short and the United Nations, for all the good will and high intentions of its champions, moves ponderously and slowly, dependent on decisions of its unit nations, in some

Both the Americans who have served as UNRRA’s directors general — Herbert H. Lehman, who headed it from its formation until his resignation last March, and Fiorello H. La Guar-dia. now at Genova—have declared that great suffe ring will result if there is a hiatus between the end of UNRRA and the time new United Nations agencies are ready to function. The United Nations has made a beginning toward assuming UNRRA’s responsibilities but little more.

KANSAS CITY, Aug. 7. -nib -Rep Roger C. Slaughter, marked for defeat bv President Truman in the Fifth district race for the democratic nomination for congressman, today issued a statement in which he expressed appreciation of his suporters, but did not mention the election results which gave Enos Axtell the nomination on the basis of unofficial returns.
“Yesterday’s primary was but the opening skirmish in a battle that must be fought out within the democratic party to wrest control from non - democratic ! groups.” he said.
“If the democrat,- party is to succeed in this fa’Ds congressional election and if we are to elect > a democratic president in 1948, 1 the alliance existing between the, CIO-political action committee and th** democratic national com- i mittce must be speedily dissolv-! cd.”
“So far as I’m concerned, I feel I I have discharged my oath of of- ' fie** to the best of my ability. I am more than grateful to my sup- ' porters who expressed their belief in me on yesterday.”
