State Commission In Charge As soon as copie* of the bill are received, the aviation commission will be called into special session to plan its procedure under the program. This meet is expected in the near future. Class Four airports and above will deal directly with the CAA.

The money that is to be match ed can be used for construction of any part of an airport exceot hangars. No hangars can be built with the money received through this program.

AR President Is Oil Off Broadcast Someone Snips Wires In Bote mo ut Before Green Goes on Air By DOUGLAS B. CORNELL NEW YORK, May U.-(JP)— President Truman declared today that until the world learns the science of human relationships ‘the atomic bomb will remain a frightful weapon which threatens to destroy all of us.” Speaking before a crowd which overflowed 10,000 seats on the campus of Fordham university, celebrating the 100th anniversary of its charter, the president declared: “It is up to education to bring about that deeper international understanding which is so vital to world peace.” One A-Bomb Defense Mr. Truman, whose address was broadcast over all networks, said there was at least one defense against the atomic bomb. “That defense lies in our mastering this science of human relationships all over the world,” he said. “It is the defense of tolerance and of understanding, of intelligence and thoughtfulness.” Police Commissioner Arthur W. Wallander estimated that 400,000 persons hailed the president, some waving, others shouting Harry as his motor caravan rolled swiftly through blocked-off streets to the university. The president-- who studied low in Kansas City in the early 1920 s — donned a gold-tasseled cap and purple-banded gown to receive Fordham’s honorary degree as doctor of law. Education Faces Challenge “Education faces the greatest challenge in its history,” the president said, in preparing veterans and other young men and women ‘‘to live in the new atomic age.” “Intelligent men do not hate other men just because their religion may be different because their habits and language may be different, or because their national origin or color may be different,” he said. “Intelligent Americans no long er think that merely because a man is born outside the boundaries of the United States he is no concern of ours.” Quotes Roosevelt Mr. Truman, reading to the convocation on the Fordham campus a “last message” from the late President Roosevelt, said: “In a speech which he wrote just before he died, but which he never delivered he said: “We are faced with the preeminent fact that, if civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships—the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live and work together, in the same world, at peace.’ Atvnosphoro Reported Friendly; Railroad Froight Embargo Goos off Monday Until citizens of America and citizens of the other nations of the world learn this ‘science of human relationships’ of which President Roosevelt spoke, the atomic bomb will remain a frightful weapon which threatens to destroy all of us.” Fewer Pigs, More Wheal That's Request to Formers, Ti® Get More Groin For Famine Areas Abrood By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON, May ll.—(ZP) —Choosing between meat for this country and grain for starving lands, Secretary of Agriculture Anderson tonight asked farmers to produce IO per cent fewer pigs next fall than they did a year ago. The action, he said, is dictated by the fact that grata supplies will not be large enough to continue hog production at present levels and supply famine areas abroad. It was taken as Stabilization Director Chester Bowles served notice to the public that the meat supply “pinch is really going to be felt next winter and spring.” Meat will be more plentiful within the next few months, he reported, but then will become scarcer as a result of higher grain prices authorized in the hope of getting more grain for export. “We aren’t going to like it very much,” Bowles said in a broadcast. “But we would like ourselves a whole lot less if we went on callously, blindly, stuffing our own mouths while we defaulted on our plain obligations to the starving of this earth.” Anderson asked a pig reduction of nine per cent in the midwestern corn belt and at least 12 per cent in other areas. This difference recognizes the difficulty of obtaining adequate feed supplies outside the corn belt and the need for economy in the use of transportation facilities. Fitzhugh Seniors Enter Final Week War Bride Arrives Here From London to Make Her Home ASHEVILLE, N. C.. May ll.— («*)—A scheduled NBC broadcast by AFL President William Green was suddenly cut off the air tonight and NBC Announcer John Hurley told reporters it was because someone snipped three wires in the basement of the city auditorium where Green spoke. The broadcast went dead about 15 seconds after it began. Hurley was introducing Green at the time and the labor leader had not begun speaking. Green then gave a 15-minute rousing speech before 2,000 southern AFL leaders, opening the AFL southern organization drive. Green and the audience believed the speech was being heard throughout the nation. T. C. McManus, Asheville plant manager for the Southern Bell Telephone company, confirmed Hurley s statement that three telephone wires bearing the broadcast were all cut at the same point. McManus said that in his opinion it could not have been accidental. Hurley, who introduced Green on the broadcast, is chief NBC announcer at Washington. »    -k--— In Dunn, N.

England, to make her home with her husband at 11.2 Va North Stonewall. The Mitchells have been married a year and it had been nine months since Mitchell, who was stationed for 23 months in the ETO with the Eighth Air Force, had seen his wife.

Some were reported to be actually trailing persons they suspected, and others planted themselves as decoys to lure the killer into another attack. Presley and Chief of Police Jack Runnels in a joint statement yesterday told citizens here that somebody was “out of pocket” (missing) in Bowie and Miller counties the nights of the killings, and urged them to recall whether anyone they knew was missing on those dates.

May ll.—(At - The government today ordered the railroad freight embargo lifted Monday but slapped controls on the entire soft coal output expected during the strike “truce.” The action covers “captive” mines as well as others and may withhold coal from industry immediately. But it provides the government with an expected 20,-000,000 to 25,000,000 tons of coal for emergency users without resorting to seizure of the pits. Saturday Conference Friendly John L. Lewis and the mine owners met. meanwhile, in what Edward F. McGrady, federal conciliator, called “a very friendly, very cooperative atmosphere” to seek the settlement President Truman requested by Wednesday. After morning and afternoon sessions which brought no specific word of progress the conferees adjourned until ll a.m. (EST) tomorrow. The stumbling block appeared to be Lewis’ demand for $3,000,000 in back holiday pay. Possibly in this connection, most of the afternoon session was devoted to a caucus of the operators. It was they who proposed tho Sunday session. Says Operators Modo Proposal! John D. Battle, executive secretary of the national coal association, was not among the conferees. issued a statement saying that “the coal mine owners made offers to the union leaders weeks ago that should have prevented a work stoppage, and they renewed their offers many times.” He declared that Lewis* truce offer “further demonstrates his control over the nation’s coal supply.” With miners generally ready to go back to work Monday morning except»in several scattered locals, officials not only took control of the coal to be mined during the two-week truce but called for continued dimouts and other electric power conservation measures in view of the still-deadlocked contract negotiations. Although the order by the solid fuels administration covers the coal to be produced by “captive” mines owned by the steel companies. Much of this is unsuitable for use outside steel mills. The effect of the order on steel production remained uncertain. Cool To Be Doled Out The order, in effect, sets up priorities by which the accumulating coal will be doled out by the government. The first preference will go to utilities, railroads, laundries, hospitals and the like. Only after these needs are filled may factories get coal. The nationwide freight embargo which took effect Thursday will end at 12:01 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time) Monday. With it will go the express embargo and the ban on parcel post shipments weighing more than ll pounds. The 25 percent reduction in passenger travel on coal-burning trains is being kept in force for the present. An additional 25 percent cut slated to start Wednesday, however, was called off.
