To Hear Speech by Truman on Thursday President Truman will start a busy speaking schedule Thursday when he goes to St. Paul for the Minnesota Centennial. The Thursday night talk will be followed by another from the White House Saturday night when the President takes part in a round-up broadcast in behalf of the senatorial candidacy of former Gov. Herbert H. Lehman of New York, who is seeking the seat now held by Senator Dulles, Repub lican. On the following Friday the President will speak at a luncheon here at the Mayflower Hotel un der the auspices of the National Conference of Christians and Jews. His speech, at 1 o’clock, will launch plans for the Nation wide observance of “Brotherhood Week” to be held next February 19-26. The general chairman is former Navy Secretary John L. Sulivan and about 1,000 guest from throughout the country are expected. While final details for the Pres ident’s St. Paul speech have not been completed, it is known he will leave here on B. & O. at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and arrive in Minneapolis the following aft ernoon at 2 o'clock. He will drive to St. Paul. The speech there will be in Civic Auditorium and the day has been set aside as "Truman day” in Minnesota’s 100th observance of Statehood. While the affair is under bi partisan auspices, White House Secretary Charles G. Ross said to day “that it doesn’t necessarily follow that the President will make a non-partisan speech.” Mr. Ross said the President is Planning no platform speeches on the trip. Stettinius (Continued From First Page.) Mrs. W. J. Wallace, were with him when he died. Mr. Stettinius came here about a month ago from his brother-in law's home at East Hampton. Long Island, while the Trippes remained there. He had observed his 49th birthday on October 22. His three sons, Edward R„ Wal lace and Joseph, were immediately notified of their father's death as well as his other sister, Mrs. John B. Marsh. Book Due Out This Week. "Roosevelt and the Russians.” Mr. Stettinius's book describing the Yalta Conference, is due for publication on Thursday of this week. In public statements and ar ticles over the last few years, the former Secretary of State had given some glimpses of history at Yalta as he saw it. On one occasion he said he knew about the often criticized secret agreement by which Rus sia obtained possession of the Kurile Island chain north of Japan. But since the agreement1 involved future participation by Russia in the war against Japan,: Mr. Stettinius said, it could not be made public at that time "with out endangering the whole course of the war in the Pacific.” Mr. Stettinius defended the present Security Council voting formula which he said Franklin D. Roosevelt had proposed. Refer lng to this system, which permits any of the "Big Five” to veto sanctions but not to veto proce dural questions like the presenta tion of a complaint, he once wrote: "This formula was a recogni tion of one of the major facts of international life in the world to day—the fact that without agree ment among the great powers, lasting peace will be impossible.” A rich man's son who went far in business and Government by his knack of getting big jobs done quickly and by championing or ganized labor—that was the suc cess story of Edward Reilly Stettinius, jr. • A friend once said he was bom with a silver spoon in his mouth and changed it for a gold one by his own efforts. Disdaining a life of ease offered by a wealthy background, his personality, earnestness and hard work enabled him to make friends simultaneously among business associates and union leaders, with Republicans and “New Dealers” in Washington. And, bucking tradition even harder, he won his spurs early. At 37 he was chairman of the board of the powerful United States Steel Corp., at 40 he super vised the stupendous potential fund of 60-odd billions as ad ministrator of lend-lease aid in the Second World War; when nearly 43 President Roosevelt named him Undersecretary of State—a surprise appointment. Then the next year he was ad vanced to Secretary of State to become, at 44, the second young est man to hold that position in the Nation’s history. The only other Secretary younger when appointed was Edmund Ran dolph, who served for a time un der President Washington. Ran dolph was 41 when he took office in 1794. . Mr. Stettinius succeeded the veteran Cordell Hull, who re signed after 12 years because of ill health. He turned his atten tion immediately to bringing about an enduring peace after World War n and appealed for the support of all the people fti this effort. Seeks Enduring Peace. “To build from the havoc of this war a peace that will endure is a task far beyond the strength and wisdom of any one man or group of men,” he said. “It will require the active participation and sup port of all the American people— BERLITZ Tlr* Tear—French, Saanich, Italian, Oer. naan or any ether Itnnace made easy by the Berllt: Method—available only at the BEKLITZ SCHOOL OF LANGUAGES B3» ITtb St. (at Eye). STerllncMtS THERE IS A BERLITZ SCHOOL INEVERY 1 LEADIHO CtTT OF THE WORLD 1 and of all the other peace-loving peoples of the world. In this task we must not fail. To this task I dedicate myself in the sure knowledge that together we will not fail.” Soon after he took over as Sec retary of State on December 1, 1944. Mr. Stettinius startled some of the oldsters in the department by holding an all-inclusive “get-, acquainted” meeting. Renting Constitution Hall, he invited every department employe, down to the youngest colored messenger, to a get-together where he introduced himself and his staff. In effect, he said: “Were all one team We've a lot of work to do. Let's pull together.” This statement projected to the department em ployes the feeling Mr. Stettinius wanted to convey—that he was one of them, not just a remote : button-pusher. He promulgated a reorganiza tion plan, providing for a staff of ! six assistant secretaries, that was changed little until increased postwar work of the department made further reorganization nec essary under Secretary .of State Acheson in 1949. Helped Organize U. N. A confirmed internationalist. Mr. Stettinius devoted most of his unusual ene-gy as Secretary of State to the organization of the United Nations. As Undersecre tary, he served as chairman of the Dumbarton Oaks Conference in Washington during the late sum mer of 1944 tSit laid the ground work for the p. U. organization. : Soon aftt* he.UM advanced to Secretary, Mr. Stettinius accom panied the late President Roosevelt to the Yalta Conference and went on from there to an inter-Ameri can conference in Mexico City that set the stage for conclusion of the Rio Inter-American defense treaty after the war. He headed the American dele gation to the 1945 conference in San Francisco that organized the I United Nations, and served as president of that conference.

Immediately on conclusion of the San Francisco meeting. Mr. Stet tinius resigned as Secretary of State on June 27. 1945, to be suc ceeded by James F. Byrnes. He re mained in Government service another year, however. He helped win Senate ratification of the U. N. Charter, and then served as United States representative to the U. N. Preparatory Commission and later on the Security Council. He re signed the latter post on June 3 1946. After his retirement Mr. Stettin ius figured in the news principal ly in connection with the Uni versity of Virginia, his alma mater. He was made rector and chairman of the university’s gov erning board in August, 1946. He held these posts until March 16, 1949, when he resigned for per sonal reasons after being in poor health for some time. Gave University 6100,000. While rector of the university Mr. Stettinius made it a gift of cash and securities valued at more than $100,000 to create the Stet tinius Fund, Inc. This is a philan thropic foundation with broad powers. Mr. Stettinius spent much of his time in his latter years on his farm in Culpeper County, Va. He liked to tell friends that his 600-acre farm, raising cattle and a variety of crops, was operated on a business basis and paid its way. Before he was made Undersec retary of State in October, 1943, as successor to the brilliant diplo matic career man, Sumner Welles, who had resigned, his public ca reer had been marked by his two years in the lend-lease agency, a job he took over at the request of Harry L. Hopkins, the Presi dent’s right-hand man. In 1939. he had been chairman of the short-lived War Resources Board; also chairman of what eventually became the War Pro duction Board. In these positions he was blamed by some politi cians for failure to convert indus try to war. Some “New Dealers” said he was too "big-business minded.” At Helm For Lend-Lease. But he had his supporters and the President ignored the charges. Mr. Hopkins, who meanwhile took on other important jobs, per suaded the young, prematurely white-haired Mr. Stettinius to administer the huge lend-lease program. Soon he was in the thick of a heated congressional fight which threatened a possible check to lend-lease expenditures. By his tact, good-will and a sense of humor, he was almost solely re sponsible for getting an extension of the life of lend-lease in April, 1943, and later $6,000,000,000 more for Allied aid in the same year. Except that he worked on a much larger scale, he did, in lend-lease, what his father did for the allies in World War I. His father, a St. Louis orphan, who had made and lost a fortune in wheat and then attracted the at tention of the banking firm of J. P. Morgan by his success as a match manufacturer, was made purchasing agent for the Allies by the New York bankers in 1915. Born at Chicago. October 22, 1900, he was educated at Prom fret School in Connecticut and the University of Virginia. His father had married a Virginia girl, Judith Carrington, and this was one reason why he sent his son to college there. At college he wras confronted with a double handicap—a fa mous father and an older brother, William, who had made a con spicuous record at the school. William was known as “Big Stet” while Edward was called “Little Stet.” “Little Stet,” however, made a name for himself, but in an un usual way. He became interested in finding jobs for worthy stu dents. He started a job placement bureau that attracted the atten tion of John L. Pratt, then vice president of General Motors. Mr. Pratt in”ited him to study that corporation’s employment setup and he started out by taking a humble job paying only 44 cents an hour. In three years he was Mr. Pratt’s assistant. Barkley (Continued From First Page.) minutes while the Veep, as he likes to be called, put through a phone call to President Truman at Washington. The President seemed "pleased and happy” at the news, Mr. Barkley reported. The former Senator then turned to those present and said chival rously: “The Vice President yields —shall we say—to the Senator from Missouri.” Mrs. Hadley, with eyes spark ling, said simply: "The Vice Pres ident and I are going to be mar ried on the' 18th of November. The plans will be announced later.” Friends then rushed up to con gratulate the couple, while pho tographers’ bulbs flashed. “I certainly deserve to be con gratulated,” Mr. Barkley com mented. “I regard myself as greatly honored by the announce ment Mrs. Hadley has just made.” People Pulled for Him. Mr. Barkley had said all along since he met Mrs. Hadley that he never had had so many people pulling for him. He said at vari ous times he would "make the grade” but that he enjoyed such widespread support. The Vice President has been dropping in at St. Louis at practically every op portunity since Mrs. Hadley turned up in Washington last July and was introduced to him. Their latest "date” was Saturday night when they attended a concert by Miss Margaret Truman and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Mrs. Hadley’s daughter Jane 1 ANNOUNCING COLONIAL COAL HAS APPOINTED ALASKA COAL CO. WASHINGTON AND ARLINGTON THEIR SOLE WHOLESALfAND RETAI L DISTRIBUTOR IN TlflS AREA ALASKA COAL.

Shopping for Ring. The Vice President said he: would remain in St. Louis until tomorrow when he will leave for Pennsylvania to keep a speaking engagement. He and his bride-to-be planned to go shopping for a wedding ring today. Mr. Barkley and Mrs. Hadley met last July 8 while she was visit- j ing Mr. and Mrs. Clarke Clifford1 in Washington. Mr. Clifford is a I presidential aide. The two were introduced during a cruise down the Potomac. After that Mr. Barkley was a frequent visitor to St. Louis, usually making the trip by s$ir. He parried reporters’ questions on the! budding romance with evasive butj polite answers. And all the while1 the dark-haired Mrs. Hadley smil ingly refused to comment. Mrs. Hadley’s husband, who died in 1945 at the age of 42, was, general counsel for the Wabash Railroad Co. She has two daugh ters, Jane, 14. and Anne, 17, who is a student at Sophie Newcomb College, New Orleans. Mother Is Pianist. She is a native of Keytesville, Mo. Her maiden name was Jane Rucker. Her mother. Mrs. Estle Rucker, is a professional pianist. Her father, Roy Rucker, an attor ney, is now ill in a Kansas City hospital. Mrs. Hadley attended! Washington University in St. Louis1 and married Mr. Hadlty in 1931 She is now employed in a secre-! tarial capacity at the Wabash headquarters here. Mr. Barkley is a widower. His; wife, whom he married in 1903.1 died in 1947 in Washington. There were three children, David M.j Barkley, Mrs. Max Truitt and Mrs. Douglas MacArthur n, wife of a nephew of the general. Mr. Barkley is an attorney and has been in politics since 1905. Hei served in Congress as Representa tive and Senator from Kentucky for 36 years before being elected Vice President last fall. The Nation's No. 2 Democrat crossed party lines in his selection | of a bride because Mrs. Hadley is —or was—known as a Republican. In 1940 she worked at Wendell Willkie’s campaign headquarters here. Friends say she was rather staunch in her support of the Re publican presidential nominee. They relate that she queried her milkman as to his political lean ings. He finally admitted he was for Mr. Roosevelt. The next morning, so the story goes, the milkman found a note from Mrs. Hadley in a milk bottle on the back porch. It read: “No Willkie, no Milkie.” I Students Leave Gifts On Halloween Visits By the Associated Press CUMBERLAND, Md.f Oct. 31.— A group of students reversed the usual Halloween procedure. Instead of banging on doors and issuing the traditional "trick or treat” threat, they left neatly wrapped gifts on the porches of a number of homes. The Barton High School stu dents said they merely were try ing to make a better Halloween for every one. Liberals in Colombia May Appeal to U. N. On Election Violence ky th« Associated Press BOGOTA, Colombia, Oct. 31.— Plans were being formulated to day to bring the question of mounting political violence in Co lombia before a United Nations agency. Disorders have swept the coun try with the approach of the presidential election on November 27. Both the Liberals and Con servatives have accused each other of resorting to violence and bloodshed. Liberal Party chieftains said yesterday they would submit a complaint to the U. N. Commis sion on the Rights of Man. They accused the Conservatives of un leashing a wave of disorders which they claimed had deprived the majority of Colombia’s citi zens from exercising their funda mental rights. A similar com plaint also may be addressed to the Organization of American States at Washington. The Liberals are threatening to abstain from voting in the forth coming election. They cite their reports of frequent clashes as proof that the government of President Mariano Ospina Perez, a Conservative, cannot guarantee a free election. Unconfirmed dispatches carried by the Liberal press yesterday reported that more than 100 per sons were killed in an attack by Conservatives in the department of Santander Norte. One paper, El Tiempo, said three outlying sections of the town of Salazar “were completely destroyed by Conservative attackers.” Dario Echandia has the Lib eral Party nomination for the presidency. The Conservative can didate is Laureano Gomez. U. 5. and Britain Press For Action on Balkans LAKE SUCCESS. Oct, 31 UP).— Britain and the United States pressed for quick action today to protect United Nations observers in the troubled Balkans. The issue assumed urgency in the eyes of the Western powers because of reports that observers for the U. N. Special Committee on the Balkans had been fired on from Albania as recently as Octo ber 25. The British have introduced a resolution which notes those re ports and calls on Albania to make certain there are no further such incidents. Interrupting general debate on threats to peace in the Balkans, Britain’s Hector McNeil last Sat urday asked for immediate con sideration of the resolution. He was backed by Benjamin V. Cohen of the United States. Both bowed to Russian insistence on a postponement when Soviet spokesmen insisted they had not had sufficient time to study the British proposal. The Russians are expected to attempt to stall action again—this time contending that all proposals on the Balkans should be taken up at the same time—at the end of general debate. Fact-Finding (Continued From First Page.) nailed down until completion of such a study. The board suggested that the companies contribute 10 cents an hour per worker for pensions and insurance, of which 6 cents would be earmarked for pensions. It also suggested that the programs should be "non-contributory.’’ meaning that the employers should bear the whole costs. However, Dr. Daugherty said in his interview that matters such as who should pay and how much for the pensions should be worked out in collective bargaining be tween the union and employers. He pointed out that only after a thorough actuarial study had been made would the disputants know with any accuracy just how much would be needed for “ade quate” pensions. Insurance Studies Ready. Studies on the cost of social insurance already have been made in the steel industry, so Dr. Daugherty said there was no need for further delay in putting such a program into effect. The industry agreed to make the 10 cents per hour contribution to the pension-insurance program, but insisted that the workers should contribute also to both funds.

If the study shows that ade quate pensions cannot be obtain ed for 6 cents per hour, he said the two parties might be able to agree to worker contributions as well as to some increase in com pany payments.

There have been requests from smaller steel companies that thej fact-finding board be reconvened to clarify its findings and rec ommendations. Dr. Daugherty said that should be done only if both sides request it. However, President Truman has declared that the board has completed its work and that.
