KYSER SLAMS FOES
OF HEALTH PLANS Says Only Alternative Is Socialized Medicine; 500 Hear Lumberton Speech By Staff Correspondent LUMBERTON, Feb. 15. — Speak ing before 500 persons at an open meeting of the Robeson County Pomona Grange in Lumberton Fri day night Kayser, Tar Heel orchestra leader and radio star now on a visit to his home state pointed to the Good Health program of the State Medical Care Commission now before the legis lature as the only alternative to socialized medicine in North Caro lina and added “I say socialized medicine over my dead body. Kyser was accompanied here by Mrs Harry B. Caldwell, master of the State Grange and Mr. Cald well past Grange Master and now executive secretary of the N. C., Good Health Association who al so spoke briefly. Paul S. Oliver of Marietta, Master of Robeson Pomona Grange presided at the evening meeting. The audience composed oi busi ness and professional men farm ers housewives and high school youth went on record almost unani mously as favoring the good health program outlined by Kyser and Caldwell. Noting that “Nothing good has ever been accomplished without opposition’’ Kyser said that he had only compassion for those who honestly objected to any phase of the program but that the opponents ere hanging on to ignorance of the problem rather than probing deep for the facts. The state needs 12, 000 more nurses he said and E300 more doctors. There is madistribu tion of medical personnel with 75 percent of the state s people living in the country, and only 25 percent of the doctors there. There is no facility for 98 percent of the men tally sick only 2 percent of these being insane. He quoted the late Dr. P. P. McCain as saying that if 1,000 extra hospital beds were provided and chest Xrays were made compulsory tuberculosis could be arrested in this state with in one generation. We are lousy business men and taxpayers,” he said, “When we allow these conditions to continue. 100,000 school children are fail ing to pass each year,55 percent of this number are sick with reme dial defects, Absentee is of 16-18 days per year caused by illness compared \\th national average of 8 days. North Carolinians are now determined that geography and lack of money shall not deprive them of the opportunity to share in medical benefits.” EMERGENCY END IS PREDICTED (Continued From Page One) powers Mr. Truman will ask to have extended. Those which would otherwise expire upon the term ination of the emergency — many of them already dormant or near ly so — include: The requisitioning of ships: Lease of vessels to friendly na tions; arming of merchant Ves tels; authority to transfer the Coast Guard to the Navy; pur chase of military supplies by “streamlined; methods, without advertising; hiring of dollar-a year men; suspension of duties on acrap iron imports; tax-free with drawal of alcohol from distilleries for industrial use; appointment of an Undersecretary of the Navy; and certain relaxations of ship manning and operating standards. Lower dates are pinned to other emergency statutes: free importa tion privileges for servicemen, for Instance, would end six months after the emergency, as would the right to sell or lease public lands lor munitions manuiacture. war housing would have to be disposed of within two years. A large number of laws were written to expire either at the end of the emergency or the war. These, government legal officials hold, should be interpreted as end ing with the war instead of the - emergency. The proposed pattern of decon trol for the “emergency” statute# will follow generally that used by the President in his proclamation ending hostilities on Dec. 31, it was reported. This wiped out «ome 53 powers, 20 of them im mediately — including the author ity to seize strikebound plants— and 33 others at some later date, like the high excise taxes on furs and amusements which expire June 30. In some cases, like the latter one, Mr. Truman asked Con gress to write new legislation re placing the old. In tile case of the “emergency” laws, however, the President may wait for Congress to act before is suing the proclamation. Government officials said the end cf the war could be proclaim ad either by the President or by a joint resolution of Congress, jign •d by the President. They hold that a "concurrent” resolution of Congress, not carrying the chief executive’s signature, would prot» ably suffice for most statutes but not all of them.

Front f- Market "mi Two Operas Presented By New York Company The controversy among music Critics, whether Aida or Falstaff is Verdi’s greatest opera, is self - perpetuating. Among less disputation and critical music lovers Verdi’s fame rests chiefly upon la Traviata, Rigdetto and II Trova tore, the first two of which were performed in the High School auditorium yesterday by the New York Civic Opera Company, under sponsorship of the Junior Chamber of Com merce. jCa cJraviata There was no diamond horse shoe, no sidewalk canopy, no line of taxis or liveried chauffeurs at the wheels of private limouzines, but just a high school assembly room, with a shallow stage and minus a sunken orchestra pit. For all that, great music was well sung yester day afternoon when La Traviata was presented. The highbrows delight to call La Traviata lowbrow music because of its sweet melodies. If they, per chance, happen to be right,' which is not granted, what the world needs is more of the same low brow kind of music. The libretta of La Traviata deals with a mortal frailty that probably dates from the institution of parenthood—the interference of a father with the emotional life of a son. The story is too well known to require further explanation here. It is mentioned at all only because the performance of the second act, in which Germont Pere persuades Violetta to renounce Alfredo, the younger Germont, was by far the high point of the matinee. Mme. Marie Mangaryan, wcu gave a fine interpretation of the Violetta role and whose voice is far above average in its high regis ter, excelled in this act, which this reporter inclined to believe chiefly due to the splendid voice of Lor enzo Cianfrini, with whom, as the elder Germont, she shared the act. If Mme. Mangaryan was at her best, as we believe she w'as, in the first act aria “'Ah! fors e lii,” Mr. Cianfrini reached the pinnacle of his performance in the death less baratone aria “Di Provena, il mar, il suol,” in the second act. Mario Orlando, the cast’s Alfredo seemed to be suffering a mild at tack of flu which is so prevalent, or other throat trouble, but came through brilliantly in what we have always liked to call the rec onciliation duet in the final act. Although she filled a lesser role as Violetta’s friend, w e noted a ■ splendid timbre in Miss Gerta Koblitz’ occasional bits. Mr. Frank Foti conducted with vigor and good understanding of the opera. It could be wished that he had a larger orchestra with which to ^demonstrate his affinity for the nuances in the Verdi score. —J. E. H. HUNGARY WILL GET $15 MILLION LOAN (Continued From Page One) made plain in its announcement that this government proposes, as a contribution to peace in Eu rope, to help underwrite Hun gary’s post-war political and eco. nomic stability, as agreed to at the Yalta conference. Moscow last year rejected three proposals by this government that Russia, the United States and Great Britain take part in a joint effort to bolster Hungary. Thus far, it was noted, the Unit ed States also has: 1. Returned Hungary's monetary gold reserves valued at about $32,. 000,000. 2. Increased a previous surplus purchase credit from $10,000,000 to $15,000,000. 3. Returned considerable quanti ties of goods looted by the Nazis and instructed American com manders in Germany and Austria to return displaced property re moved under duress during the German occupation. The United States, it was added, is "continuing its consideration of various possible me^ns of extend ing additional economic assis* ance" and “it is hoped that ar rangements can be concluded at an early date under which further economic aid for Hungary will be forthcoming.” Under the peace treaty, Russian occupation trorys in Hungary, estimated' to number 60,000 or more, are to be withdrawn within 90 days of final ratification. They have been reduced in number from a peak of possibly 1,000,000 at V-E day. Russia, however, may retain some forces to guard lines of communication as long as Aus tria is occupied. MAJOR CHANGES IN LABOR SEEN (Continued From Page One) for bans on the closed shop and industry - wide bargaining, for stopping industry-wide disputes af fecting public health and safety, and for more liberal use of in junctions to halt strikes. Bans on the closed shop and on dictional, sympathETAO ETOINN industry - wide bargaining, along with boycotts and jurisdictional, sympathy and general strikes were part of a program urged during the day by the national association of manufacturers. Ira Mosher, chairman of the NAM Executive Committee, pre sented the proposals to the Sen ate Labor Committee. He testified that if “external obstacles” to good labor-management relations are removed "you will see an era of labor peace previously un known.” Mosher listed industry - wide bargaining and secondary boy cotts among the “external” in fluences. He would have Congress curb "all strikes which do not relate' to wages, hours or working condi tions and strikes based on de mands which the employer is powerless to grant.” “These include,” he added,! "jurisdictional strikes, sympathy strikes, strikes to force recogni tion of uncertified unions and Utdkes to force ‘feather-bedding’” E^H hiring of more workers than ^■employer feels are needed). It used to be said in New Or leans when the French Opera House was packing them in that had many of the singers started their careers by way of Broadway instead of Canal street their fame would long before have been world-wide. It wss not quite clear because the opera house w,as in the French quarter not on Canal street, but always consoled the Orleanians who were a sensitive, people. But it was true to the ex tent that the Metropolitan is still the goal of ambitious singers and many who deserve a place in the Metropolitan company can hope to arrive not by way of Canal street but by starting, when the oppor tunity comes, in a smaller comp any. Wilmmgtomans heard such a “prospect” last night in the person of petite Pino Guida, the Gilda of the New York Civic Opera Com pany's performance of Verdi’s Rigoletto. The little diva’s Caro Nome was something to cherish for many a long month to come. And so was her duet with Basil Jackson, the beautiful “Piangi, piangi fanciulla.” In range and tonal purity Miss Guido’s voice is superb. Last night she was in top form. Mr. Jackson, as Rigoletto, Is another eligible for the Metropoli tan. It is not only that he pos sesses a high degree of musician ship, but dramatic instinct as well. His performance was truly master ful. Although the opera is written around Rigoletto, it would be dif ficult to imagine it without a Duke of Mantua, in which Antonio Fiore did so well last night. He was particularly fine, if a little hurried, in the beloved “La Donna e mobile,” both on the stage and in its repetitions in the wings. These three, with Dorothy Dale, gave a hushed audience tingling spines in the stirring quartette. The lateness of the hour pro hibits a detailed account of the performance, but it is impossible to close without paying tribute to Henry St. Jean as the assassin, Henry Kulkman as Count Monte rone, and Dorothy Dale as the Countess Ceprano. Considering the limitations of the stage, the presentation, as such, was excellent. Again, the conductor, Frank Foti, was dynamic and showed fine musicianship, as at the Traviata matinee. Today’s presentation will be Bizet’s Carmen, with the curtain to be drawn at 2:30 o’clock. BEACH TO GET DIAL SYSTEM (Continued From Page One) this proposal for an increase in the monthly rents for service to be effective with the placing in service of the new system, Bain added. According to Bain, the improve ment and expansion of the tele phone service in Wrightsville Beach is another step forward in Southern Bell’s steady progress toward its goal of providing more and better telephone service for the citizens of North Carolina and is in recognition of the growing importance of the Wilmington area and of Wrightsville Beach as a summer resort. Bain stated that while engineer ing plans had been under way for some time for the expansion of the Wrightsville Beaqh exchange because of the difficulty in secur ing equipment and the uncertain ty in obtaining definite schedules for the provision of the necessary equipment, it was not possible to make public announcement of these plans until this afternoon. He stated that unusua. efforts have been made to obtain this equipment for Wrightsville Beach and in view of the conditions gen erally prevailing throughout the country, the company considers itself extremely fortunate in be ing able to announce its plans for this popular resort at this time.

Loomis, Jr., secretary of the anti-Negro, anti - Jewish Colum bians, Inc., was convicted today of incitement to riot in a case which stemmed from the beating of a Negro passing through a white residential section. The 33-year-old organizer of the hate group was sentenced by Ful ton Superior Court Judge Clarke Edwards, Jr., to serve 12 months in a public works camp. The jury required only 29 minutes to reach its verdict. Carolina Craft informed the re porter that due to the shortage of new equipment nothing could be done at this time. He said, how ever, that when apparatus became available, boat owners would be able to have complete coverage with their sets from Maine to Miami. The only receiving stations in operation at present in the South are located in Norfolk, Charleston and Miami. It was thought this system would be com pletely satisfactory. Craft said and added “we now realize that new stations must be construct ed.” DAVID HAS FACE REMODELED David Ruge, (left), 17-yeair-old Chicago boy, wears a proud smile as he displays results of plastic surgery performed on his face by a Grand Rapids, Mich., doctor.

You know that the communists have charge of all those, under the overlordship, so to speak, of Rus sia? Acheson — I am familiar with the facts of Russian influence in that area. McKellar — well, my statement about it is correct, it is not? Acheson—I beg your pardon sir? McKellar—my statement about it that they are under the general control of the communist govern ment of Russia, thought of as a superior power right near them, and yielding to Russia all the time Acheson — the Russian influence, I think, is the dominant influence in that area. McKellar — the dominant influ ence in those countries now, assum ing that Russia is reaching out not only for those countries that she already has, but is reaching out for additions to her territory— do you not believe that if she gets this bomb discovery, she wouid take not only the remainder of Europe but perhaps the remainder of the world? Acheson—Senators, I don’t think that that is a question which is capable of being answered in the way in which you asked it. I am quite aware of the fact that Rus sian foreign policy is an aggres sive and expanding one. 1 think that one of the great efforts which everyone is making in the United Nations is to attempt to find means of solving problems of that sort. If those means and agreements can be found, then there is hope that there will not be major clashes.
