Strike And Ship Tie-Up
Bridges Agrees to Woge Boost, Bitterly Talks Of New Demand in Three Months
By MAX HALL
WASHINGTON. June 14.-(SP) —President Truman reported today that he had been informed there was a good prospect for settling the maritime labor crisis in time to prevent a shipping tie-up tonight.
This w^as related by the president to his news coriference, while on Capitol Hill Capt. Granville Conway war shipping chief, said that Harry Bridges had agreed to accept a wage increase of 22 cents an hour for his CIO Longshoremen.
In view of this, Conway told a house labor subcommittee investigating the scheduled strike of maritime unions at midnight, “it seems reasonable to me that it will be settled” this afternoon.
Bridges* objection to the 22-cent figure has been one of the
biggest—and perhaps the last_
stumbling blocks separating unions and operators and the government from an agreement.
His decision now to take it, as reported by Conway, convinced Chairman A. B. Kelly (D.-Pa.) of the house groups that the strike was “over.”
Bridges Threatens Another
Bridges had given ground bitterly, and even as he brightened the prospects of averting the strike now, he flung a threat of another maritime critis in little more than three months.
He hinted he would take the 22-cent figure only until September 30.
Mr. Truman said that the labor department was his source of information about a good prospect for settlement of the controversy before nightfall.
Conway told the house group tnat the only thing left to be worked out was an agreement regarding retroactive pay for the west coast seamen.
V- hat Conway hopes will be the iinai negotiations session was set for 2 p.m., (est).

OKLAHOMA — Generally fair tonight and Saturday; warmer west and north tonight and east and south Saturday; Sunday partly cloudy with widening thundershowers except Panhandle: cooler northwest Saturday night and west and north Sunday.
Stories in The Ada News pay off in big dividends and Quinton Blake, chief of police, will be one of the first to agree.
Only this week, an Ada woman's brother who lived at Sa-sakwa was killed and residents of Sasakwa were having trouble finding the woman.
Information received by the city police stated that the woman was a Mrs. Herring, but a man who read the story in The News knew the woman’s brother and knew that her name wfas Hearn.
Other information was that the woman lived on Sixth or Sixteenth street, but she actually lived on West Fifteenth.
Members of the police force have not forgotten how the Cooperation of The News and the Associated Press found a man who had lost several thousand dollars worth of war bonds while traveling from Atoka to McAlester.
On information relayed by The News to the Associated Press, the local police department received a number of telephone calls and telegrams from half a dozen states in addition to more than a dozen letters and postal cards.
food is being taken, Police Chief Quinton Blake reports that food is still coming in although in less quantity than during the earlier days of Jthe week. It was roughly estimated that about 160 boxes of canned goods are stacked at the hall.
There are some 1,200 cans of food piled at the fire station where tickets were given to the Roy Rogers personal appearance show. They will be moved to the hall shortly.
Saturday a box will be placed in most grocery stores so that those doing their weekend shopping can buy an extra can of something and donate it to the starving people overseas. Everyone is urged to take advantage of this for no matter how much has been given a little bit more won’t hurt, and it will help a starving person overseas.
Ray Martin, city commissioner of finance, who is in charge of all cash donations, reported early Friday morning that a total of $248.26 had been turned in to him from various sources. This did not include proceeds from the dance given by the VFW for the drive. Any persons wishing to donate cash are asked to do so before noon Saturday because Mr. Martin’s office closes at noon.

Agreat to Destroy Own Start of Atom Bombs, Cease Making Them lf Adequate Control System Set Up, Mokes It Clear There Must Be No Voto Power in Any Port of Set-up

Unity Asked Of Italians
Premier Replies to Umberto's Charges, Appeals For oil to Support Republic
By JOHN P. MCKNIGHT
ROME, June 14, <.P—Premier Alcide De Gasped appealed to Italians today to support the new republic, regardless of how they voted in last week’s plebiscite.
The premier addressed the nation by radio in an atmosphere of tension created by an acrimonious exchange between his government and King Umberto II, who ‘reached Lisbon today for his exile.
A manifesto issued last night in Umberto’s name charged that the cabinet had usurped the king’s powers in a “revolutionary gesture” and added that he had left Italian soil only to avoid civil war.
A royal aide said Umberto would consider himself king pending a formal court ruling on the plebiscite.
Says Umberto Compromised
De Gasperi, in a 10-minute broadcast, deplored “the tragedy of that man”—Umberto. De Gasperi said Umberto, “compromised with the dictatorship,” had attempted in the last few months to regain his power.
He is part of the national catastrophe,” De Gasperi said, asserting an expiation was due from Umberto, even as “we all must expiate.”
The premier urged Italians “to show the strength of unity” at a time when peace treaty negotiations are about to begin. “Let us show that the Italian people is resolved to defend its right to the future and its frontiers,” he said.
King Set Election Law *•
De Gasperi became provisional president and head of the state early Thursday by action of the cabinet. .
“I wish to speak Ko you as man to man,” he said, “I especially wish to speak to those of the opposition who are in good faith.”

States made it crystal clear that there must be no veto power in any part of the frame-work it was proposing for the development and peaceful use of atomic energy.
It called for renunciation of the atom bomb as an instrument of warfare and for a world security program “not composed merely of pious thoughts but of enforceable sanctions—and international law with teeth in it.”
Baruch Talks Plainly
Bernard M. Baruch. 75 year old financier who played a leading role in this country’s victories in both World Wars, laid the United States’ atomic cards on the table at the first meeting of the United Nations atomic energy commission. on which he is the U. S. representative.
He lost no time in getting down to business. Addressing himself to “my fellow citizens of the world.” Baruch said the United States “proposes the creation of an international atomic development authority, to which should be intrusted all phases of the development and use of atomic energy ...”
Would Stop Making Them
“When an adequate system for control of atomic energy, including the renunciation of the bomb as a weapon, has been agreed upon and put into effective operation and condign (suitable) punishments set up for the violations of the rules of control which are to be stigmatized as international crimes,” Baruch said, “we propose that:
”1. Manufacture of atomic bombs shall stop;
“2. Existing bombs shall be disposed of pursuant to the terms of the treaty, and
“3. The authority shall be in possession of full information as to the know-how for the production of atomic energy.”
“My country is ready to make its full contribution toward the end we seek, subject of course, to our constitutional processes, and to an adequate system of con-, trol becoming fully effective, as we finally work it out,” Baruch said.
Punishment One Major Factor
The elder statesman, whose address constituted one of the most remarkable documents yet laid before the United Nations, said the matter of punishment “lies at the very heart of our present security system.”
“It might as well be admitted,” he continued, “here and now, that the subject (punishment of vio

WASHINGTON, June 14.—(AP)—The house refused today to accept the senate’s drastic curtailments on OPA extension and sent the bill to a senate-house conference committee for a “harmonizing” of differences.

Four Bonk Bondifs And . Loot Captured on Island
DETROIT, June 14.—OP)—Five bandits who looted a Tecumseh, Ont., bank of $12,000 led American and Canadian police on a “cops and robbers” chase down the Detroit river last night before the authorities captured four of them on Peche Island.
Three men and a woman were in custody of Canadian police today, while officers searched the island for the other member of the gang which carried off a daylight raid on the Tecumseh branch of the Provincial Bank of Canada.
No formal charges have been filed by Canadian authorities, who did not release the names of the captured bandits.
All the loot was recovered, buried in a pillow slip in the sand on the island beach.
Wearing yellow hoods and displaying at least one pistol, three of the quintet entered the bank just fifteen minutes before closing time and yelled:
“Holdup. Everybody lie down.”
Bank Manager William St. Pierre and six patrons complied, and the bandit* helped themselves to the money but ignored $15,000 in negotiable government bonds.
The bandits fled in a waiting car and the chase over land and water was on While some patrons followed them in other vehicles, Canadian police joined the Chase and alerted Detroit officers.

“The charter permits penalization only by concurrence of each of the five great powers—Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the United Kingdom. China, France and the United States.
“I want to make it very plain that I am concerned here with the veto power only as it affects this particular problem. There must be no veto to protect those who violate their solemn agreements not to develop or use atomic energy for destructive purposes.”
