LUMBERTON, Nov. 21 — (/P)—
A. textile union cooperative gro

has been selling food and tobac

tim of a conspiracy by local gro

Congress To Be Asked

WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. —
Congress will be asked to write
into the European interim aid
bill a general policy of letting
foreign countries buy some
American tobacco with loans
from this government Represene
ative Harold Cooley of North
Carolina said today.
A tobacco state Congressional

proposal to send nearly $600 mil

Although none of this money
will be spent for tobacco, Cooley
said the interim aid measure
“will set the pattern” for the
long range European recovery
program under the Marshall
plan; and “unless we can get
tobacco recognized as one of the
commodities to be bought with
American loans, we’ll be in the
doghouse.

None around the Navy

what has become of the “Green

how its banned.
The legend is that some dash

LONDON, Nov. 21 — (U.R) —Sec
retary of State George C. Mar
shall arrived today for Tues
day’s meeting of the Big Four
Foreign Ministers and found
American delegates openly
skeptical of the chances of mak
ing progress on the German and
Austrian treaties.
Marshall arrived at Northolt
airport at 12:25 p.m. from
Washington in President Tru
man’s former plane and said he
refused to be pessimistic. He
added that his plan for Euro
pean recovery was progressing
favorably in Congress.
But his associates who had ar
rived here earlier and those who
accompanied him, were pre
paring to meet some dramatic
and distasteful Russian "sur
prise” as soon as talks started
on tne uerman peace treaty.
They believed Russia might
demand either that the Ger
mans themselves—though there
is no German government — be
brought into the peace talks or
that allied troops get out of Ger
many at an early date.
The Big Four deputies met
for weeks here, preparing for
next week’s big meeting, and
failed to reach agreement on
any major question.

With Marshall came Charles
Bohlen. State Department coun
selor; Karl Humetfeine, chief of

Russia Threatens Iran Over Oil
_ i---—-----1 _
Hostile Action
Claimed In Note
Moscow Charges Govern
ment With Treachery
In Breaking Accord
MOSCOW, NOV. 21.—OJ.R)—
Russia has warned Iran that its
cancellation of an oil agreement
with the Soviet Union constitutes
hostile action and that its gov
ernment must bear responsibil
ity for the consequences, it was
announced today.
Russian Ambassador I. V. Sad
chikov delivered to the Iranian
Foreign Office in Tehran yes
terday an angry note which said:
“The Iranian government has
treacherously broken obligations
which it had taken upon itself.
“The Soviet government can
not ignore that the decision of
the Majlis (parliament) . . .In
view of the preservation of a
British oil concession in South
ern Iran, is an act of rude dis
crimination toward the Soviet
Union.
“On the basis of the above the
Soviet government declares a
resolute protest against the
above-mentioned hostile actions
of the Iranian government toward
the Soviet Union—Incompatible
with normal relations between
two states—and places respon
sibility for the consequences of
this upon the Iranian govern
ment.”
There was no hint what Russ
ia’s next step might be in a
situation which brought the
United Nations Security Coun
cil its first great crisis and
caused the famous walkouts of
Soviet Delegate Andrei A. Gro

Premier Ahmad Ghavam of
Iran agreed on April 4, 1946, to
a 50-year agreement giving
Russia 50-year oil concession in

SURVEY INDICATES
NEED OF COLLEGE
Dr 0. T. O’Rourke Says
North Carolina Can Sup
port Dental School
RALEIGH, Nov. 21—(IP)— A
preliminary survey indicates that
North Carolina needs a dental
college, Dr. O. T. O’Rourke of
Tufts College at Boston said to
day.
Dr. O’Rourke was retained to
make a survey of North Caro
lina’s need for a dental college
by the dental college committee
of the North Carolina Dental
Society. He said that he expected
to complete his survey in Febru
ary.
The dental committee, Dr.
O’Rourke said, had asked him to
determine whether or not the
state needs a dental college, and
if so, how large it should be and
whether or not it should be an
endowed institution or state own
ed.
The state now does not have a
dental college, and North Caro
lina students who want to be
dentists must go to colleges in
other states for their training.
Since 1933, Dr. O’Rourke said
an average of 113 North Caro
linians have been enrolled in den
tal colleges each year and at least
250 students should be studying
each year in order to maintain
the present percentage of den
tists, and still more students
would be needed in order to in
crease the percentage.
Dr. O’Rourke expressed the
opinion that the per capita in
come of the state is large enough
to enable it to support a greater
number of dentists.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 21.—Sec
retary of the Army Kenneth
Roy all, of Goldsboro, N. C., is
likely to become the civilian chief
of all the armed forces soon, and
therefore will not run for gov
ernor of North Carolina next
year, an informed source told
the Morning Star today.
James V. Forrestal, the secre
tary of defense, wishes to return
to his private investment busi
ness as head of Dillon, Read and
company, of New York, and his
post would logically fo to the
tall Tar Heel, who stands high in
favor with the White House, the
source said.
Royal], a wartime brigadier
general, already has the distinc
tion of being the nation’s last
secretary of war and its first
secretary of the Army. When he
entered his Pentagon office last
July he also had hopes of be
coming the next governor of his
native state. Friends said he
would resign soon after complet
ing his work in the unification
of the services.
As months went by however,
the secretary spoke less about
leaving and there were reports
that he might be promoted if he

WHO SAYS THE WAR IS
OVER? — Enforecement of rent
controls in the Wilmington area,
embracing four counties, ap
pears to be dependent on wheth
er or not the late World War
11 is officially over or not. J. R.
Hollis, chairman of the local
rent control board, says that for
the time being rent controls in
the area will be enforced.
The Wilmington Real Estate
board has passed a resolution
asking that rent controls in the
area be terminated, Hollis re
called, but his board has re
ceived no copy of the resolution,
he said. A Federal court has
ruled that the act under which
rent control agencies operate is
invalid, because Congress has
no right to enforce emergency
measures in peacetime. The
question, however, is whether
or not this is peacetime. Mean
while. until final adjudication is
handed down, the rent controls
are still on.
MECCA FOR TOURISTS
Evidence that Wilmington is be
coming known throughout the
nation as a Mecca for tourists is
the steady string of cards and
letters arriving daily at the
Chamber of Commerce office
here asking for information
about the city and beaches.
Secretary John Farrell says
much of the mail is undoubtedly
instigated by folders sent out
from his office. Following is the
message from North Dakota
chosen as a typical request re
ceived from prospective visitors:
“Kindly send me informa
tion on points of interest in
your part of the state. We ex
pect to be down there the last
week in December. What are
your main attractions that time
of year? Kindly send me names
of best average price cabins and
eating places. I’d greatly appre
ciate this information.”

Four To Five Month Short
Supply Looms; Urges
Grain Control
WASHINGTON, Nov. 21—VP)—
A “distressing” shortage of meat
beginning in February was fore
cast today by Secretary of Agri
culture Anderson.
“Meat is going to be distress
ingly short for February, March,
April and May, and possibly
June should be added,” he told
the joint Senate-House Economic
committee.
“We are likely to have higher
prices then,” he added.
He appeared in connection with
President Truman’s anti-infla
tion proposals.
Anderson said, however, that
“unless there is a disastrous
wheat crop” next year there will
be no general shortage of food
in the United States. His state
ment took into account the pro
posed food aid shipments to Eu
rope.
Americans’ meat consumption,
now averaging some 156 pounds
per person annually, will be re
duced to about 135 pounds, he
predicted.
Short To October
Meat is likely to be somewhat
hard to find in sufficient quanti
ties until next October or No
vember, he said. By that time,
grass fed livestock is expected to
be reaching the market.
Anderson told the lawmaker*
that if the wheat crop failed,
immediate efforts would be made
to stimulate the production ol
potatoes, soy beans and other
such foods. ,
The cabinet officer asked
sweeping authority to tighten
controls over trading in grain and
other foods by raising margin
requirements as high as 100 per
cent.
He also declared that the au
