Parley Favors Advisory Group Overrides Objection Council Would Be Bureaucratic Setup President Truman is expected to name an Advisory Council on Air Pollution soon to carry out the request of a three-day con ference here. Called by the President, the United States Technical Confer ence on Air Pollution late yester day adopted a resolution, urging creation of the advisory council. The resolution suggested it should be composed of representatives of research and education, indus try and of Federal, State and local governments. The meeting, held in the Ward man Park Hotel, ended yesterday. It was attended by 720 persons, representing medicine, industry, engineering, law and government. Held Bureaucrat Move. The resolution recommending formation of a council was adopted with oniy a scattering of nega tive votes. But before the vote was taken, R. W. Coward, represent ing the Fly Ash Arrester Corp. of Birmingham, Ala., took the floor to brand the plan “more social ism.” He said taxes are already heavy enough without asking Con gress for more money for this project. Mr. Coward contended the Gov ernment bureaus set up the con ference as a show, and the resolu tion was another entering wedge for “more bureaucrats.” He frankly described himself as a “Dixiecrat.” He told the meeting that industry already is spending from $200 to $300 million annually to combat stream and air pollution. Sees Spending Encouraged. He declared the meeting would be held up to Congress as evidence that industry favors more spend ing in this field. Dr. William P. Yant, engineer of the Mine Safety Appliances Co., Pittsburgh, as chairman of a steering committee presented the resolution. Assistant Secretary of the In terior C. Girard Davidson said the steering committee will be con tinued until the council is set up. John L. Hofilund, chief counsel of the Bureau of Mines, said sen timent is against Federal Govern ment intervention as a policeman. But he declared there was a feel ing that the Federal Government agencies oould engage in research Into air pollution problems. Producers' Feud With Dairy Aired A long-standing feud between Bruce B. Derrick, secretary-treas urer of the Maryland and Virginia Milk Producers’ Association, and Embassy Dairy was out in the open today. Mr. Derrick had expressed the view that a conference called for Thursday by the District Commis sioners on banning "imported” milk into Washington was in spired by the Embassy Dairy. The dairy is one of the largest distributors not buying its milk through Mr. Derrick’s association. It is able to buy its milk at a cheaper price outside the District milkshed. Officials of Embassy Dairy could not be reached for comment.

Milk Producers Willing to Sell to Any Dairy Here Trial Witness Says Import Ban Would Not Exclude Firms A spokesman for the Maryland and Virginia Milk Producers’ As sociation said today the group is ready to sell milk to any local distributors not now buying from the association. The official made the state ment amid reports that some dairies may not be able to get milk in the event the District Commissioners’ ban on importa tion of milk outside this market goes into effect July 1. A hearing on the ban will be i held by the Commissioners Thurs day. Four Washington area dairies do not now get any of their milk from the association. This was brought out yesterday in the third day of the District Court trial of the association and seven area dairies, charged with conspiracy to fix milk prices in restraint of trade. Prices Vary. William B. Hooper, office man ager of the association, also testi fied its prices to distributors vary, depending on whether they are located in the District or Mary land. He said this results from varying production costs stem ming from District Health De partment regulations. Under questioning of Defense Atorneys William E. Leahy and Roger Whiteford, Mr. Hooper cate gorically denied that (1) the asso ciation had ever made any agree ments with dairies to set milk prices; (2) had ever discrimi nated against dairies not buying from the association, and (3) had ever cut the producer price in order to control the consumer price. Mr. Leahy developed the fact from Mr. Hooper that the associa tion audits the distributors’ books to determine what to bill the dairies. Doesn’t Trust Accounting. Later Mr. Whiteford, who repre sents Chestnut Farms Dairy, the association’s largest customer, asked Mr. Hooper: ‘You do not trust the account ing of *ny of the distributors?” The witness replied: "That’s right.” Testimony also developed the fact that Chestnut Farms and Thompson’s Dairies have not had any written contracts with the as sociation since 1938. The two dairies account for 70 per cent of the association’s production. The association, in turn, supplies about 80 per cent of Washington’s milk. Under redirect examination by Chief Prosecutor Robert H. Winn, Mr. Hooper observed that since 1942, Thompson’s Dairy, “without consulting us,” had purchased some milk from non-association sources. Mr. Winn is scheduled to resume his questioning of Mr. Hooper at 10 a.m. Monday before Judge Alex ander Holtzoff. Front Royal Dairy Asks Milk Price Be Reduced FRONT ROYAL, Va., May 6 UP).—The Royal Dairy of Front Royal has asked the Virginia Milk Commission to reduce the price it pays to producers from $8.85 to $5.60. The dairy said the pro ducers who supply it with milk already have agreed to furnish the milk at the lower price. The request was made at a commission hearing here yester day which considered the present milk price structure in the Front Royal-Strasburg-Middletown milk market. G. E. Neely, manager of the Royal Daily, told the commission there is need for a wider price spread for distributors. Other producers and producer distributors testified that there should be no cut in producer prices. They said producers’ costs have increased about 5 per cent last year and some producers lost money.

Yarbrough Star Staff Correspondent FORT MEADE, Md„ May 6.—The 3d Cavalry, famed from here to Chapultepec and the Rhine, rode again yesterday—on five mules and a horse borrowed from a Maryland farmer. It was the outfit’s 104th birthday party, a rollicking frolic in which mechanized cavalrymen played polo on mules, tried to catch a slick pig and played musical chairs to the tune of "America, the Beauti ful.” It was a celebration by military descendants of horsemen who rode against Mexico, the Western Indians, the Spaniards in Cuba and the Philippines. The 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment rode again against the Germans in two wars, but it used tanks instead of horses. Once Fought Indians. Forerunner of the 3d Cavalry was the Mounted Rifles, organized in May of 1846 for duty against Indians on a route to the Pacific Northwest. Before it could get there, it went into action against the Mexicans and distinguished itself in the attack on the Cha pultepec Fortress. It spearheaded Sherman’s drive through Georgia, fought Indians in the Southwest, served in the Spanish-American War and World War I and was on Gen. Patton’s dash through France into Germany. It was Washington’s “show” regiment and its troops guarded the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Gen. Winfield Scott praised its men at Mexico City. Gen. Pat ton praised it in World War II. “It is,” he said, “a distinct honor to have commanded an Army in which the 3d Cavalry served.” The dead ones in that glorious THIS SUNDA Y'S BEST READING IS IN With Doll?

What could they have done with those in the Philippine cam paign? “Why, son,” Mr. Wright pshawed, “they would only have been good for blockhouses. We couldn’t have used ’em out there. Out there we had rivers and swamps and vines. Every time we crossed a river, we had to call a muster. “I drove ah ox cart out there for two days and two nights, and the mud was so bad I drove that carabao 200 yards before I realized the cart didn’t have wheels any more."

However, he indicated Britain would rid Itself of the “disease” and start again. Dr. Christopher Daniels, founder and head of a well-known Lon don clinic who has been in this country for the last few months, addressed an impromptu meeting of Alexandria business and pro fessional men and clergymen in the George Mason Hotel to ex plain socialism and socialized medicine in Britain "in the real perspective that it occupies.” Describing socialism as nor a mere change in economy, but a “bitter war intended to attain fantastic power,” Dr. Daniels called Britain’s socialists "wanton, paralyzing lievrs,” who have com pletely deceived the poor, anni hilated the rich and the middle class by bankrupting them and running Britain at "a fantastic loss.” He said Britain's socialists did not come to power by the coin cidence of a costly war or British “decadence,” but after 50 years of strategy and undermining, and by forcing an election when Britain was in turmoil. Dr. Daniels, who has made 88 talks in this country, declared so cialized medicine to be the corner stone of the socialized state. “Life, death and sickness are the most emotional things in life,” Dr. Daniels said. “If you can persuade people they are uncared for, then socialism can be started. The pattern is now well known. After medicine is socialized, the plan expands to housing, food, transportation and other fields on the grounds they are related to health.” Park Group Approves Detached Homes on Hyattsville Tract Approval of a petition seeking reclassification of a four-acre tract in Hyattsville to permit erection of a semidetached or two-family detached homes was recommended yesterday by the Maryland-Na tional Capital Park and Planning Commission.

Big Fish That Didn't Get Away Lands Maryland Man in Court Special Dispatch to Th* Star LA PLATA, Md., May 6.—The trouble with this fish story is that the big one didn’t get away. Trial Magistrate Edward S. Digges has warned a Charles County man that if he is guilty again of taking rock fish over the 15-pound legal limit, his boat will be confiscated and his fine trebled Richard Maddox. 50, of Don caster, drew a $35 fine Thursday for possessing over-sized stripers, one weighing 50 pounds. Inspector Mark Pratt of the Maryland Tidewater Fisheries Commission said. ‘‘They were whoppers. Our 50-pound scale quit under the weight of the biggest one.” He and his mate. James Saun ders, on the patrol boat Severn, drew alongside Mr. Maddox’ boat and looked in his fish box. They said that in addition to the largest fish, they found others weighing 36, 24 and 20 pounds. The stripers later were served to patients at Physicians Memorial Hospital here. The same two inspectors also arrested James E. Grinder, jr.. of Indian Head, for setting an anchor gill net in the Potomac River. Mr. Grinder drew a suspended fine of $300 and the boat, owned by his father, a 60-year-old fisher man of California. Md., was con fiscated. Mr. Grinder pleaded guilty. His father said, nowever, he had fished commercially for 40 years and that he didn’t know there was a ban on gill nets in the Potomac. He opened a glass jar and fished out several circulars he said were sent to him by the Fisheries Commission. They had nothing that indicated licenses were not valid in the Potomac. The court pointed out, however, that this information was con tained on the license itself. Court attaches said they be lieved the case was the first in which the Potomac River anchor gill net statute has been invoked since it was enacted in 1929. This type of net is permitted in some parts of Chesapeake Bay.
