Putting All Buying for Armed Forces Under One Authority Is Definite Step Near Merger
Coal Strike Threat Is Discussed In Cabinet Heeling
WASHINGTON, Oct. 25.—(ZP) —The threatened coal crisis was brought up at President Truman’s cabinet meeting today and Attorney General Clark later said his office is “analyzing” the government's contract with John L. Lewis s united mine workers.
Clark told reports that while he had not been asked to study the contract “we always analyze those things so we will be ready if called upon.”
The contract was negotiated
> Navy Still Opposing Full Scale Unification of Forces, However
WASHINGTON, Oct. 25. (ZP)
—^One phase of army-navy merger is a reality today with the disclosure that President Truman his put all armed forces’ buying under a single and final authority.
Army officials immediately hailed the move privately as “the bent practicable solution’’ short of actual unification.
Bitterly opposed by the navy, full-scale merger would require congressional action.
In that direction, the president already has indicated he will re-n?w his recommendation for a single department combining the army, navy and air forces when

Attlee, Churchill Loose Blasts Al Communis! Policies
By WILLIAM L. PHILLIPS
LONDON, Oct. 25.—(A1)—Winston Churchill and Prime Minister Attlee captured Britain’s headlines today with almost simultaneous verbal blasts against Russia in what appeared to be shaping up as a solid British front against communism.
Churchill told his constituents in suburban Loughton last night that he had “facts” and “evidence” to support his suggestion —made in the form of a question before the House of Commons Wednesday—that the Soviet Union now has 200 divisions—more than 2.000,000 men—on a full war footing in Russian-occupied east-

strike the veto issue from the assembly^ provisional agenda, Soviet Representative Andrei Y. Vishinsky announced that he was withdrawing his proposal in the interest of “unanimity.”
He told the 14-nation general (steering > committee that he felt it his duty, however, to warn both the committee and the assembly that discussion of the controversial issue could lead to “no practical results.”
He described the move to bring up the veto question as “a political attack against essentia! principles by the charter.” and declared that Russia “will not insist on exclusion of the items from the agenda” and “will not object to their discussion” in the assembly.
He said, however, that he felt compelled to put the committee “on guard” and to W'arn that it was entering “dangerous” ground.

TULSA, Okla.. Oct. 25, LPL-Mrs. D. Leigh Colvin, national president of'the Womens Christian Temperance union, last night told delegates to the annual state convention of the Oklahoma union that “prohibition is coming back” for the nation.
“The signs already are pointing toward the return of our ideals, ’ she said. “America will not go down with the other countries of the W’orld but will come back and defeat liquor.”
Earlier the delegates reelected all present officers for another year. They were Mrs. Elizabeth House of Stillwater president; Mrs. George Miller of Ada and Mrs. Georgia Malone of Apache, vice presidents; Mrs. Geneva Carberry of Stillwater corresponding secretary; Mrs. L. L. Owen of Tulsa, treasurer; and Mrs. Fay Kreuger of Oklahoma City, recording secretary.
Tile convention ended today with committee reports and a closing address by Mrs. Colvin.

seized the idle soft coal mines Secretary of War Patterson said in response to questions merely that the coal situation had been “mentioned” at the 40-mm-ute cabinet session.
Later Clark was asked how much time was devoted to the subject of coal.
He replied that about the only d "“ussion of the matter was that it is in the hands of Secretary of Interior J. A. Krug and Reconversion Director John R. Stedman.
Krug is now on a w'eStern tour that is not scheduled to end until Nov. 6, the day after election.
Lewis has demanded reopening of the existing wage agreement and has served notice that the pact will be “void” unless the negotiations begin Nov. I. The ederal coal mines administration has taken the stand that the contract is good for the duration of government operation of the mines.
When a reporter asked if Mr. Truman waj optimistic about the outlook on coal, Clark said that the president had not indicated whether he is or not.
Muskogee School's Fire Loss $235,000
MUSKOGEE, Okla., Oct. 25, LPX—Superintendent J. Carl Conner today estimated it would cost $235,000 to rebuild the Whittier grade school here which was badly damaged early yesterday when a fire started by lightning almost destroyed the schools north wing.
The blaze was restricted to the one wing housing ten classrooms, the cafeteria and heating plant. Temporarly classrooms were set up in the auditorium and some students were transferred to other grade schools.
SUGAR, SUGAR EVERYWHERE
NEW YORK, Oct. 25— (ZP) — New Yorkers found themselves surrounded by 100,000,000 pounds of sugar today, but had virtually none for their tables.
The raw sugar was aboard cargo ships tied up by the maritime strike. Inability to get the raw material forced the last of the city’s four major sugar refineries to close yesterday. „
LAWTON, Oct. 25, <JP>—A. B. Ham brick of the Pioneer Roofing Co. here found business really “hot” recently.
When he was measuring the roof of a residence, Hambrick’s steel tape came in contact with an electric light wire and transmitted 220 volts into the roofer’s body. He was unable to turn loose of the steel measure until it burned through and contact was broken, after 20 seconds. Hambrick escaped with minor hand burns and a “shocked” outlook on the roofing business.
The new chief of armv-navy purchasing is a civilian. Richard R. Deupree, executive chairman of the army-navy munitions board and in private life president of Proctor and Gamble Co.
He Has Final Word
By a presidential order dated October 15, Deupree is vested with full and final authority in the purchase of all materials required by the army and navy. The order specifically states that “it also includes the power of final decision in the event of disputes” between the two services on the matter of buying.
Heretofore, the munitions board s proposals have been subject to a veto by either branch.
In addition to Deupree, the board’s members are War Undersecretary Kenneth C. Royal I and Assistant Secretary of the Navy W. John Kenney.
One point that was not immediately cleared up was why no announcement of the new purchasing setup had been made here. Deupree disclosed the presidential order in Cincinnati yesterday.
May Ask ^Draft Extension
Other developments on the peace-time military front included:
I. An apparent prediction—followed by hasty correction—bv Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower that he might be succeeded by Gen. Omar N. Bradley as army chief of staff.
, 2. A report by Gen. Eisenhower t at congress may be asked for another extension of the draft act. The present law is due to expire next March 31.
(t Eisenhower told newsmen that with our occupation commitments in Europe and Asia, it is uncertain to have to depend on volunteers alone.”
Tulsa Yards Again Taking Livestock
TULSA, Okla., Oct. 25, (*4*)— Cattle and sheep* were accepted at the Tulsa stockyards today and the week-long embargo on their sale will be lifted Monday, Lee Clinton, president of the stockyards firm, announced.
Clinton said although the animals were received today they could not be sold until next week. The last pens were cleared yesterday of cattle that jammed them early in the week when farmers flooded the market with their livestock. The resulting transportation tie-up led to the embargo.
EL RENO. Oct. 25, UP—Maj. C. W. Hammond, public relations officer at Fort Reno, has announced that approximately 50 thoroughbreds and half-breeds will be sold by the army quartermaster remount service at Ft. Reno Oct. 29.
Brighton earlier in the day in which the prime minister bluntly accused Soviet leaders of erecting a ‘ wall of ignorance and suspicion” between the Russion people and the rest of the world. Speech Is “Serious Warning” “The fact that the British government have decisively broken with the communists and are fronted with them, although it does not immediately affect the course of affairs in this island,” says Churchill, “has an important and beneficial result abroad, because there are countries on the continent—like France—quivering under the communist attack.” He said his Wednesday speech should be regarded as “a serious warning.” and added:
“I did not ask the question (about Russian forces) without weighing very carefully the whole matter and without consulting others, my friends and colleagues, and laying before them the evidence on which I proceeded.
'Nor did I ask the question without informing the government beforehand of my intentions. but you can take it from me that the facts I adduced are correct.”
Attlee Changes Misrepresentation
Attlee, in his Brighton speech, sharply accused “communists, their dupes and fellow travelers” of practicing “misrepresentation” and said he “deeply regretted” the policy by which “the Soviet government appears deliberately to prevent intercourse between the Russian people and the rest of the world.”
According to the Russians, he declared, whoever was not a communist was necessarily a fascist.

LOS ANGELES, Oct 25, UP)— Henry A. Wallace, in his first speech since Sept. 12—when an address in Madison Square Garden on the international situation brought his retirement from the cabinet—asserted last night that
“the forces of reaction.....
can only be checked by an enlightened, progressive democratic party.”
Speaking before a capacity crowd of 10.400 in Olympic auditorium, Wallace moved squarely into the tight California politica'l situation, urging the election of Will Rogers. Jr., “great son of a great father” and defeat of incumbent republican William F. Knowland, wrhom he called an exponent of “Taftism.”
“I want to make five things clear, ’ Wallace told cheering supporters:
“First, I am still a democrat.
“Second, more than ever before I am a progressive.
“Third, I am very happy that the prospects for a peaceful world have brightened greatly during the past month.
“Fourth, I want to do everything I can to elect progressive denlocrats to congress.
“Fifth, if the democrats fail to control the 80th congress, there is only one way in which they can get control back again and that is by becoming more progressive.”

Taylor said most of those wanted for trial were in American custody, but that some might be brought rn from other zones.
No plans have been made for additional joint war crimes trials with other allies, although provision is made for such action if it proves desirable, Taylor said.
The trials will begin next month \vith the arraignment of the 23 German doctors charged with inhuman experiments. A staff of 700 persons has been assembl I already and personnel is expected to approximate the 1.500 employed by the international military tribunal before the trial* are over.
