AUSTIN — (UP) — Governor
Stevenson and Lieut.-Gov. John
Lee Smith are split on whether
a special session of the State
Legislature should be called as
a result of the United States Su-

The U. S. isn't the only nation that has to contend with strikes in
induatries vital to the war effort, as the above map of British Isles

The required statement re-

500 pounds of protein meal mon-

eliminated, said Demp Kearney,
county Triple A officer.
This situation has been effect-
ed I iv revocation of Director's
Order No. 2 of Food Production
Order 9, Revision 3, which was
ued December 21, 1913. On
that date, the 500 pound plus
deliveries were prohibited in
New .Mexico and certain coun-
i ties in West Texas, unless giv-
en special approval by County
Agricultural Conservation Com-
mittees. On January 1, 1944, the

DALLAS - (UP)—Final re-
turns in Dallas’ school board
election show that the Rev. M

preacher who aspired to a place

The Negro minister received
votes in till precincts of his dis-

was comparatively light for they

R. L. Thomas, who was unop-
posed, won Place No. 1 on the
board, and Dr. David \V. Carter,
hoard president, defeated W. L.
