When questioned about his staying in office as county judge after the first of the year, he said, “The people wanted me to run for county attorney and that is the job that I am going to do when the time comes.”
Judge Long has been a resident of Pontotoc county for the past three years and has been in the frozen food locker business most of that time.

Russia Seeming To Wast Troops Kepi In Eastern Europe
Bv JOHN HI. HIGHTOWER
WASHINGTON. July 6. (ZP)_
A Russian maneuver to keep Soviet armies spread over Eastern Europe as long as possible is being predicted privately by diplomatic authorities here despite the progress on peace-making at Paris.
Failure of the Russians to follow such a line, it is said, would mark a major change in Kremlin foreign policy, and would ease tensions among the great powers far more than is expected as tilings now stand.
Byrnes Wants ‘Em Out
Tile withdrawal of occupation armies as early as possible is known to be one of the objectives of Secretary of State Byrnes One of the reasons Byrnes has been in haste to lay down peace treaties with Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria and Finland this summer is his expressed belief that this would be the first step to-getting Russian armies out of those countries.
The logical next steps in that By I nes program would be conclusion of a peace treaty with Austria and review of German occupation problems which have a bearing on the number of Russian troops in Poland.
S°,me information reaching Washington is that the issue of occupation armies already is taking form. Byrnes is reported by some informants to favor an agr cement among the big powers that occupation troops would be withdrawn from a country about three months after the peace treaty had been signed.
Foreign Commissar Molotov, on the other hand, reportedly favors making ratification of the treaty the critical point by which to fix the deadline for troop removals. Since months or even years may elapse between the time* that a treaty is signed and the time that it is ratified by all the signatories (in the United States it would have to be first approved by the senate), Molotov’s proposal would give Russia much greater leeway in maintaining troops in other countries.
Tile total of these troops is now estimated bv some authorities here as at least 1.500.000 men, possibly considerably more.

Outcome in Doubt On British Loan
By FRANCIS Mf Le MAY
WASHINGTON, July 7.—(ZP)— Battle lines were drawn sharply today, with the outcome in doubt, for opening of house debate Monday on the senate-approved $3,-750.000.000 British loan.
Speaker Rayburn (D.-Tcx), predicted victory for the administration, but Rep. Buffett (R.-Neb.). one of the leaders of the organized opposition, told newsmen, “We think we can beat it.” Some administrationists conceded privately they are not sure how the vote will go.
The house banking committee, which approved the loan ratification bill 20 to 5, put forward these claims:
1. It will end the wartime currency and trade discrimination in England and in many other countries that prevents restoration of world trade on a peacetime basis.
2. It will make possible the prompt and effective implementation of the Bretton Woods agreements for a world bank and monetary stabilization fund.
3. It will “help in the establishment of the orderly international economic relations which are essential to our prosperity and to world peace.”

The chutes have been moved around so that they face the grandstands and all of the action will h«* “in the middle of the crowd.”
Purses, including entry fees, are estimated at $11,000 or more for the g;i!a affair.

Several Joining With Republicans in Move to Toke Controls off Meat in Bill
By JACK BELL
WASHINGTON, July 6 ol*» -A Democratic split threatened today to block the revival of meat I price controls in any OPA re newal bill the senate may pas*. next week.
With Republicans massing behind him. Minority Whip Wherry j (Neb.) told a reporter he is satisfied at least a dozen senate Democrats also will support his pro-, posal to cut meat and poultry off the list of controlled products if the Office of Price Administration is revived.
Senator Murdock (D.-Utah), said, however, that if any such action finally is sustained by congress and the bill is sent to the president in that form, he expects that it w ill be vetoed, j Murdock, homself a stockman. I challenged Wherrv’s estimate of majority support for the elimination of meat, asserting:
“I can't see how any Democrat can go against the president’s wishes in such a grave crisis.” Vnm* Demos Bark Wherry But there was ample evidence : that several Democrats intend to support the Wherry proposal. Already publicly committed to this course are such veterans as Sen a tors George of Georgia. McCar ran of Nevada, and Radcliffe of Maryland.
Administration lieutenants ad nutted that an informal nose count indicated they will have to I bring back to Washington some of the senators who have gone home to patch up their political fences if they arc to have a chance of beating down what they tabbed as a “bf hlv objec tamable” amendment
Head on Collision With Issue I It will be the senate’s first head-on collision with the meat issue. Democratic Leader Barkley (Kv.), carefully avoided any such showdown when he was piloting through the original extension bill which President Truman vetoed.
In that case, a committee vote to decontrol meat, poultry and dairy products was allowed to stand without a roll call challenge. This allowed a senate-
