US. Committee Overrides Soviet On Troop Tally
By MAX HARRELSON
LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Nov 27.—(ZP)—The political committee of the United Nations assembly today over-rode Soviet opposition and approved a British resolution declaring the proposed international troop inventory and the question of arms reductions were parts of a single general question.
voting paragraph by paragraph on a British amendment to the original Soviet proposal for a troop census, the 54-nation com-ini Hee decided by 33 to 17 that the two issues were separate aspects of the same general subject.
France voted with Russia in opposition and the other three members of the Big Five voted for the British proposal.
The committee then quickly approved by a vote of 36 to 12 the second paragraph of the British proposal, which declared that the troop inventory was “the first step" toward disarmament talks and was needed to help set up the IL N.’s proposed international police force. Russia and Fiance also voted against this.
The next three paragraphs, which were similar to those proposed by Russia, were approved without opposition. They provided for reports on troops in both enemy and friendly states and for reports on air and naval bases maintained abroad by any country.
Summing up their positions before the voting, the United States and Great Britain called on the committee to override Soviet objections and broaden the troop inventory to include all forces at home as well as those abroad.

Jaycees Do Work Preliminary to Big Decoration Job of Sunday
Preliminary work to the decoration of Ada streets for the Christmas season started Tuesday morning when workmen began stringing wire across the streets in downtown Ada.
The wire is a necessary part of the fixtures as all of the overhead lighting and other decorations are strung on it.
After the wire has been stretched across the streets, Junior Chamber of Commerce members will find their job somewhat easier, but still it is a long hard task that will possibly be completed before Monday of next week.

Leadership Conference Held Here Could Serve for Model
Peabody Professor Urges Teacher College Instructors To Catalog Talented Students for Prospective Teachers
Tuesday afternoon, in a summary of the Leadership Conference held at East Central, Or. Henry Harap, Peabody Teachers college, Nashville, Tcnn., stated that he had never before seen a more energetic and enthusiastic group than the one assembled there. He said that if the plans for work groups were successful, the conference held here would serve as a model for the other districts all over the state of Oklahoma.
The principal criticism given by Harap of the present status was that the superintendents of various schools are too sharply separated from the teachers colleges. *
Would Have Lists Handy He suggested that the superintendents choose certain instructors in the teachers colleges as agents for them, to tell them of outstanding pupils and then the superintendent should make a note in a catalog. When the need arose for the hiring of an individual of certain qualifications, he would have a list in his catalog.
Harap stated that from each of the separate groups that met Tuesday afternoon and during the panel numerous original ideas were given for the successful operation of work or study groups.
These groups will submit plans for the selection of leaders in the teachers schools and for bringing out the innate abilities of the students. In this way. more qualified and appropriate teachers could be selected.
More Conferences Planned If the superintendents would use the catalog plan suggested by Harap, there would be no delay in procuring a new teacher when the need arose. As it is now, teachers are recommended by a council and much valuable time is lost in getting the teacher, he contends.
At intervals throughout the rest of the year, various groups will convene at East Central to make plans for work groups. The next meeting will be that of the Classroom Teachers, to be held the first or second week in January.
Krug Called by Committee For Questioning About Strike
Jailed Again, With Six Marriage Tries
Robortsoii Hod Thro# v Wows Without Divorce— Whan Only 17
PROVIDENCE. R. I., Nov. 27. (A*)—Thomas A. Robertson, 23, who at the age of 17 had collected three wives without benefit of divorce, was in jail today after allegedly having run his string of martial ventures to six.
He was held in $10,000 for trial after arraignment in district court yesterday on a bigamy charge.
He had the assurance of his sixth wife, June Ivy Castranova Robertson, that she was going to stick by him "because he is so romantic.” He received the pledge after embracing her and describing her “the best of all” shortly before arraignment.
Police said that three of Robertson’s marriages, two’in Kansas City and one in Corpus Christi. Texas, had been annulled, but a previous union in Spartanburg, S. C., and subsequent Springfield, Mass., marriage still are intact.
Robertson, known in the middle west as the crooning lover, was released from Kansas reformatory at Hutchinson a year ago on his promise to return to South Carolina and sing his way into the good graces of the first of his spouses.
Reformatory records showed that after his first venture Robertson, then 17, married three other young women within three months in Texas and Kansas, and served 22 months in Hutchinson Institution for Polygamy. -a-

Committee Wonts To Know Why Big Pipelines Not Carrying Natural Got
WASHINGTON, Nov. 27—(ZP) —In an unprecedented action, a congressional committee sent out a subpoena today for secretary of the interior Krug.
Krug, carrying the brunt of the government’s battle against John L. Lewis, was commanded to appear before the house surplus property investigating committee at 2 p.m. (EST) Monday for questioning about the coal strike.
The committee voted unanimously to draw the subpocanae when Krug failed yesterday to appear in response to an “invitation” issued two hours earlier. The committee wauled to know why the $143,000,0000 war-built “big inch” and “little inch" pipelines are not moving natural gas from the southwest to the coal-short east.
Congressional parliamentarians told newsmen they could not recall a committee of congress ever previously having subpoenaed a member o fa president’s official family.
Senator Wiley (R-Wis), senior republican on the judiciary committee, commented that “this raises a very serious question whether congress should interfere with the executive, and whether it has authority to compel the attendance of a cabinet officer. It might involve our system of checks and balances.”
However, Krug indicated he would not seek to bring any constitutional question to a showdown.
An aide explaied that the secretary had been in conference with attorney general Tom Clark discussing government strategy in the coal crisis, when the committee sent its invitation.
“The secretary had offered before the subpoena was issued to appear before the committee on Monday, and he will appear Monday," this spokesman tolds newsmen.

Asserts Thai Early Walkout A Mistake
Goldsborough Holds Thot Norris-Lo Guordio Act Doesn't Apply In This Case
WASHINGTON, Nov. 27, (ZD-Federal Judge T. Alan Goldsborough today ordered a ten-day extension of his order of Nov. 18 which was designed to avert a soft coal walkout.
The extension was ordered at the request of Assistant Attorney General John F. Sonnett. who broke into John L. Lewis’ contempt hearing just 20 minutes before the order was due to expire at 3 p. rn. (EST).
Sonnett interrupted a lengthy argument by Joseph Padway, AKL general counsel, who was seeking dismissal of the contempt action against the United Mine Wor kers and their president.
The original order instructed Lewis to withdraw his Nov. 15 notice terminating the UMW’s contract with the government.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 27, (ZP) — Federal Judge T. Alan Goldsborough said today John L. Lewis and his mine workers "are guilty of contempt of court” if it is proved legally they disregarded his order against a coal mine walkout.
In those words, Goldsborough indicated that his decision in the contempt case against Lewis and his miners would not be influenced by the union’s claim that the stop-strike order violated the Norris-LaGuardia anti-injunction act.
Regardless of whether or not the Norris-LaGuardia act applies in the soft coal case, Goldsborough said, no one can disobey a restraining order.
Would Mean Anarchy
"If that could be done we w’ould have anarchy,” the judge commented.
"If the defendants disregarded the restraining order, then they are guilty of contempt of court whether the Norris-LaGuardia act applies or does not apply.
“That, in this court’s opinion, Is the law.”
Lewis, who sat stoiw-fared with his attorneys and the UMW so far have made no attempt to show that they tried to obey the judge’s restraining order of Nov. 18, which instructed the UMW chief to withdraw his notice to the government that their working agreement was ending Nov. 20.
Shortly after his sharp interjection, Goldsborough recessed court at 12:30 p. rn. (EST), and cl. ‘ared the room. The whole morning had been taken up with arguments of three I*ewis lawyers seeking to win dismissal of the contempt action.
AFL Counsel Sees Differently
Prior to the recess, Joseph Padway, general counsel of the AFL. appearing in a demonstration of AFL-solidarity behind Lewis, disagreed with Golds borough’s analysis of the law. Padway told the court that Lewis’ attorneys had advised the mine worker’s chief that he was within his rights in disregarding the restraining order. •
The justice drew a laugh when he remarked dryly:
“The cemetery is full of people who took the doctor's advice."
At another point, Goldsborough remarked that Lewis and the United Mine Workers made “a very great mistake” in walking out before the courts ruled on their contract dispute with the government.
Also, he said, the transfer of 500 policemen from the day shift to night duty may be responsible for the curtailed activities of bandits.
Maybe, Warren smilingly suggested, the thugs are afraid of the dark.

Food Shortages Likely in Big Cities lf Strike Is Prolonged
Food Processing Plants Depend on Cool, Transportation Would Continue in Better Shape Thon Power Sources
By OVID A. .MARTIN
WASHINGTON. Nov. 27. <**>— Pood shortages may develop in major cities, agriculture department officials said today, if there is a prolonged coal strike.
They told reporters they foresaw no immediate disruption in processing and distributing supplies. But that should the strike continue several weeks, shortages would become acute in many areas, particularly in big citi< s distant from major production sections.
I) rustic curtailment of rail shipments of livestock could bring on a meat shortage more severe, they said, than that which developed before the lifting of OPA price controls. While much livestock is moved to market by trucks, the latter might he re st Meted for the want of gasoline normally moved by coal-burning locomotives.
Fruits, Vegetables First
Officials said the effects of the strike will be felt first and most sharply in transportation of citrus fruits and fresh vegetables from Florida. Texas and California.
Most of the nation's food processing plants depend upon coal. Hence, a prolonged shortage of fuel would force many such plants to curtail their operations if not close.
In this category are dairy products manufacturing plants, oilseed crushing plants, refrigeration plants for perishable products, sugar refineries, flour mills, and meat packing plants.
Some Milk Areas Threatened
Officials said milk products might be seriously affected i areas where dairymen are d* pendent upon feed supplies sh ped in by rail. much of toe ca I depends on grains grown in th midwest.
I I hey said a long stoppage < j cot n production would make a already bad shortage of food fat and oils considc rably wots* I They reported that some We I Coast Copra crushing plants a ready have been closed, and th. plants for crushing soybean flaxseed and cottonseed f ire th same prospect.

Cong rest tonal Committee Probing His Election; Charged of Being Communist Mouthpiece
By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST
WASHINGTON. Nov 27 (ZP) A quiet move is underway to deny a seat in the new congress to veto Mercantomo of New York City, It was learned today with disclosure that a congressional committee is investigating his election to the house.
The move has the backing of Rep. John E. Rankin (D.*Miss.), who has crossed verbal swords with Mercantomo on many occasions during the latter's IO years in congress as an American labor party representative
Based On Applications Rankin told reporters “it is probable” a resolution to deny a seat to Mercantomo will be offered when the new house convenes Jan. 3. He declined to say whe ther he personally would offer it but indicated the challenge will Im* based on the New York el s political affiliations and ac tivities.
| Holding both American labor and democratic nominations, Marcantonio was reelected Nov.
15 over Republican Frederick j Bryan despite support for Bryan j by Patrick J. Hannigan who lost the democratic nomination to Marcantonio in the August primary.
Appealing for his friends to vote for Bryan, Hannigan said he had entered the primary against Marcantonio “solely for the purpose of driving from public office the mouthpiece in congress for the communist forces in this country.”
House Can Deny Seat
A majority vote of the house can deny a seat to any member-elect, and for any reason. Any member may offer a resolution either denying him his office or denying the right to sit periling an investigation by a house committee.
Chairman Priest (D.-Tenn.) disclosed that the house campaign investigating committee is inquiring into Marcantonio’s election in the 18th New York district.
Priest told reporters the committee wants to find out whether the fatal beating of Joseph Scat-tereggio shortly before the polls opened was part of a plan to in timidate voters. Scattereggm was a poll worker for Bryan.
