ISANNOUNCED Group To Study Major Rehabilitation Of Housing Situation The creation pf a new commit tee, to be known as the Capital Improvements committee, with Ronald Stewart js chairman, was announced last night by H. A. Marks, president of the Com munity Chest. The new group will study major rehabilitation needs of the build ings housing the twelve Red Feath er services, and report their recommendations to the budget committee, Marks said. Stewart who will head the Im provements committee is past president of the Community Chest, and is familiar with this assign ment as he acted as board mem ber of the Housing authority for many years. Under the present agreement be tween the ehest and its member agencies, the agencies themselves are responsible for raising capital funds through separate campaigns. When necessary repairs are neglected over a period of years, the result is a campaign of major proportions as in the case of the YMCA which raised $90,000 in 1926 and 15 years later needed an ad ditional $50,000 for improvements. It is hoped, Marks said, that through a long range program ol repairs and renovations for our agency buildings, major capital fund campaigns as held in the past by the YMCA and other agen cies, may be eliminated. According to Marks, the new committee now has a fund of more than $91,000 with which to start operations. The funds are now m trust with the Community Wel fare Foundation. BABY DEATH TOLL STILL CLIMBING Twenty-Seventh Dies Of Gastro - Enteritis At Allentown Hospital PHILADELPHIA. May 6— (P! — Death of a 10-day-old girl today brought to 27 the toll of an out break of infant diarrhea. However, doctors at hospitals in Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey appeared to be gaining- in their fight to save 32 other tiny sufferers from gastro-enteritis, a disease for which there is no known cure. All of the victims since March 1 have been children less than one year old. Mary Ann Pleva became the 17th fatality in Allentown, Pa. Five other infants are ill of the disease in that Eastern Pennsyl vania city. At Somerville, N. J., 30 miles from Allentown, Somerset hospi tal said 10 infants stricken there are "responding well to treat ment.” Five deaths have been recorded at Somerville and four others at Temple University hospital here. The Philadelphia hospital, which admitted 17 babies last Friday r.ight following closing of a hospi tal maternity ward at Allentown, said only two of the surviving 13 were listed as "serious” cases. MCMULLAN (Continued From Page One)) 21 of his wife, Mrs. Douglas Suth erland Ewing. After a lengthy trial in Cumberland Superior court last September, he was con victed of manslaughter, and Judge K. Hunt Parker sentenced him to 18 to 20 years. Neighbors of the couple testified that Ewing frequently beat his wife, cursed her and threatened her life. Despite this testimony, the de fense argued that evidence that Ewing actually killed his wife was purely circumstantial and vv3S not sufficient for the case to go to the jury. The defence anpeal was bas ed solely on the contention that Judge Parker erred in not grant ing defense motions for non-suit. McMullan pointed out in his ar gument to the Supreme court that the defense was avoiding the pos sibility of being granted a new trial which would subject Ewing to the possibility of another trial on first degree murder charge. Only two opinions are possible under the appeal—to affirm Judge Parker in his denial of the non suit motion or to reverse his de cision in which case Ewing would go free. McMullan also argued that the defense is attempting to prove that lowing was insane due to ex cessive drinking had admitted “the act charged in the indict ment.” Experts will demonstrate the cosmetics, and mannequins will model the clothes. _ Gas on Stomach ■attend io S minutes er double your money back When excess stomach acid causes painful, eulfocat in yes sour stomach and heartburn, doctors usually nrsecrfbe the tasteet-actlng medicines known for symptomatic relief—medlclnesllke thosel n Bell-ana Tablets No laxative.

Office workers in many down town buildings poured out into the streets. Others milled about in cor ridors asking "where’s the explo sion?” Carroll said the quake was the worst recorded in the 27 years he has been at Marquette. He said he believed it was caused by a tilting of the rock underlying the lake shore from Ontario south ward. When the tilting reached a maximum point strain the rock would split, he said. Not Serious Carroll said that Mayor John Bohn had called him to ask wheth er downtown buildings should be evacuated, but that he had advised Bohn that the temblor was not serious enough to warrant that ac j tion.

The American Automobile Asso ciation reports there were fewer automobile breakdown in 1946 than during the record year ot 1945. The AAA said increased supplies of tires and spare parts in 1946 enabled motorists to keep their cars in much better repair. An estimate, based on reports from 14,000'AAA member garages showed a drop in 1946 of more than 10 per cent in the number of mechanical breakdowns below 1945. Tire trouble, as usual, was the No. 1 cause for emergency calls. Next in line was battery trouble, then ignition failures and bad car buretors. And drivers are still absent minded.

EX-CONGRESSMAN GETS MANILA NOD Emmett O’Neal Of Louis ville Slated As Ambas sador To Islands WASHINGTON, May 6— (U.PJ — Emmett O’Neal, tformer Demo cratic Congressman from Louis ville, Ky., will succeed Paul V. McNutt as ambassador to the Philippines, a high Filipino offi cial said tonight. The source said that President Truman had approved O’Neal. Other sources said O’Neal’s name was “cleared” with Philippines President Manuel Roxas some weeks ago by Philippines Ambas sador Joaquin M. Elizalge. The appointment cannot be made until McNutt’s resignation is received. The former Indiana governor, who is here now, has not said when he will formally resign although he has let it be known that he is soon to enter law practice in either New York or Washington, or both cities. Dinner Guest Significantly, the State depart ment announced today that O’Neal was to be a guest at a small stag dinner given gy Undersecretary of State Dean Acheson in honor of Philippines Vice-President Elpidio Quirino who arrived today for a 10-day visit. • O'Neal. 60, is one of a group of congressmen who played handball in the Congressional gym with “Mike” Elizalde when the former was a member of Congress as Philippines delegate.

EXPECT (Continued From Page One)) tee members, most of them heads of their local unions, will return immediately to their home cities to ‘‘intensify the strike” hnd take part personally in local bargaining. The committee, composed of rep resentatives of 49 telephone unions affliated with the NFTW, will hold no further meetings. The announcement represented a sudden reversal from optimism over a quicl^ settlement indicated earlier in the evening by govern ment conciliators. These officials said at a dinner-time break in ne gotiations on the long distance phase of the walkout that “only an eyelash” separated the bargain ers. Abandoned Hope Beirne said that the NFTW had abandoned 'weeks ago “out at tempt to get the American Tele phone and Telegraph company to sit down and bargain nationally.” Beirne said local unions always have the right to enter into agree ments with compaines of the Bell system but that they still are ex pected'to continue submitting such argeements to the national federa tion for counsel and guidance. Beirne told reporters that the pol icy committee “has reviewed all the bargaining information to date.” adding: “It concluded that the bargain ing program as well as the strike must be intensified. “Therefore the committee ad journed its meeting and the mem bers will return home to partici pate in the bargaining. There will be no further meetings of the poli cy committee.” He declared the committees’ de mand for a $6 weekly wage boos.t “still is unchanged.” The union chief recalled that some Bell System companies have made waie offers while others have not. He said the variations in these offers can be attributed to the fact that the “A. T. and T. is the acknowledged policy making agency.” “So, in order to break the ap parent log jam that exists in the Bell system x x x the policy com mittee members, well acquainted with the entire strike picture, are going back to make their contri bution where they think it 'is best — namely at the bargaining table,” he added. Beirne said the policy commit tee members, back with their own unions, will be able to stimulate strikers to increased activity and give the local public a “better idea” of the strike issues. Government negotiators still placed a good deal of reliance on the long lines negotiations, as the possible key to a quick settlement. “'Never before has the situation looked as good as it does now,” the conciliators, Peter J. Manno and William N. Margolis, told re porters before the policy commit tee break-up was announced.
