Head, With Noted
Record, To Retire
Harry A. Butler, head of South
ern Pacific' dining car depart
ment In Oregon and six other
western states, who has attend
ed to the meal time wants of mil
lions of the travelers in his 17
years with the railroad, has an
nounced he will retire from ac
tive service September 1.
Butler climaxed his career by
performing a near miracle of ca
tering during the war years when
Southern Pacific served more
military meals than any other
three railroads in the country.
Many times, because of the short
age of help, he had to recruit
dining car crews from among ex
perienced military passengers.
Starting with the railroad as a
clerk in 1902 and serving in Port
land at various times, Butler roe
to head the department whose
employes number more than 2.
100 men and women, and whose
dining cars travel more than 15
million miles a year. Since he be
came manager in 1932. an esti
mated 185 million meals have
been served under his Jurisidc-tlon.-
Butler has been responsible for
originating Ideas which have be
come standard practice on rail
roads and in restaurants through
out the nation, and even beyond
its borders. In 1933 he originated
"meals select." the Dractice of
serving a complete meal for the
price of the entree, oomewhat
earlier he Introduced the now fa
mous Southern Pacific salad
bowl, and casserole, from either
of which the passenger is privi
leged to take all he can consume.

mperlallsm Bogey used
Referring to the present na
ture of Yugoslav-Russian rela
tions, the Soviet note said:
That certain strong ties bind
the Yugoslav government or
rhlef persons in the Yugoslav
government with the camp of
'The Yugoslav government
more and more is Joining up with
Imperialistic circles (the west)
against the U.S.S.R. and is in a
bloc with them.
'That the Soviet government
can no longer consider the Yugo
slav government as an ally."
The Russians published a let
ter from Yugoslav Foreign Min
ister KardelJ dated April 20, 1947,
In which he offered variations
of the minimum Yugoslav de
mands on. Austria. In essence,
these reduced Yugoslav's claims
to a small piece of territory con
taining two electric power sta
tions. Blame Dodging Charge
The Soviet note charged the
Yugoslav government was afraid
to bear the responsibility for sac
rlflclnp national interests, but
wanted Instead to have the Soviet
Union play that role. Russia re
fused to be cast as a "political
swlndlci " the note said.
Yugoslavia's communist gov
ernment, which was intimately
associated with the other com
munist regimes of eastern Europe
in the Immediate postwar period,
was expelled from the Moscow
directed Comlnform (Communist
International Information bu
reau) a little more than a year
ago. The Kremlin accused Tito
and his followers of nationalistic
deviations from orthodox com
munism. Russia and the countries in her
sphere then put an economic
squeeze on Yugoslavia.
