COVERNMENT AUTHORIZES CHANGES The money has not been appropriated yet, but certain changes in the lobby and
loading arrangements at the Roseburg post office have been approved by the post office department at Washington, D. C.
Section of boxes nearest camera will be moved to far end of lobby, in picture above, in place of the stamp and parcel post
windows. This is to avoid present congestion as patrons wait in line at either the stamp windows, or the money order and
registered raail windows. The stamp and parcel post windows will be moved to the west end of the lobby, into the section now
used for boxes, pictured at left. The loading platform at the rear of the post office will be extended to permit more loading
space for trucks. New pieces of equipment in the parcel post section is a Pitney-Bowes postage meter, which registers the
amount of postage required for packages on strips of gummed tape. No longer will clerks have to sponge or lick stamps
for packages. Left to right are Carl Roselund, clerk; Clyde Carstens, assistant postmaster, and L. L. Wimberly, postmaster.

Russia Still Blocks Plan
For Atomic Energy Control;
U. N. President Issues Plea
LAKE SUCCESS, Nov. ' 10. VP) The United States and Britain
charged today the Soviet Union persists in blocking international
agreement on control of atomic energy. They backed a French
Canadian plan for the six atomic powers the Big Five and Canada
to continue secret attempts to end the east-west deadlock over
The United States also in
formed Carlos P. Roiulo, pres
ident ot the U. N. Assembly,
it would study carefully his ap
peal for a short-term atomic ar
mistice, a ban on the use of atom
ic bombs, and a new start on
the problem of atomic control.
Romulo announced the plea earli
Warren R. Austin, chief U. S.
delegate to the U. N., wrote Rom
ulo that the U. S. appreciates the
spirit prompting his appeal and
assured him the U. S. would ex
plore all. avenues to proposals
for settling the problem.

"Mankind is not prepared to
accept a deadlock on a matter so
serious to the future of the whoie
world, Romulo said in his ap

"Every effort must be made
to explore even the remotest pos
sibility ol an effective agreement'
Romulo listed four possible lines

for an answer to the western
Soviet deadlock. They wer.e:
(1) "The possibility of a short
term atomic armstice accompan
ied by an inspection system."
(2) "The possibility of an in-

(3) "The possibility of further
compormises between the major
ity and the minority plans for
atomic energy control."
(4) "The possibility of a new
approach to the fundamental
problem of control," based pos
sibly on "a realistic assessment
of the present requirements of
atomic energy for peaceful pur
poses." Russia Balks
For three years the UN has
been deadlocked over atomic en
ergy control. The majority of the
UN members have approved a
U. N.-backed plan lor strict in
ternational supervision of all
phases of atomic work, includ
ing the right to send inspectors
into all countries without lim
itations to see that control rules
are no being violated.
Russia has balked at unlimited
inspection as a violation of na
tional sovereignty. Instead she
has proposed that the atomic
bomb be outlawed immediately
and suggested an unspecified
form of international control
which presumably would permit
the Soviet Union to veto inspec
tion rights when she wishes.
Romulo, in presenting his pro
posal for a short-term armistice
in the atomic arms race, said the
amount of fissionable material
now available for atomic energy
is so small that adequate inter
national control would be easier
than many delegates have be
lieved. He said a short-term armistice
on bomb making, together with
some form of inspection, would
give a "breathing space for calm
er consideration" of long-range

trade with other countries re

industries and regions, Sen.
Wayne Morse told the Oregon
wool growers convention here.
"It is a two-way street," he
said. "To my mind, no industry
in this country can be asked to
assume the whole cost of a recip
rocal trade program or to bank
rupt itself for the sake of pro
moting a freer exchange of goods
Morse said he supported the
trade agreement, but said it
should be so carried out that no
one section of the country is ask
ed to make any undue sacrifices.

PORTLAND VP) Traffic on
Oregon's main north-south high
ways showed a substantial in
crease this year, with highway 99
carrying most of the load.

that good clam chowder can be

In New England, where Smiley
comes from, friendships have been
broken over tomatoes versus cream
in clam chowder. Experts say that
south of Boston the tomato reigns
supreme, but north of Boston it's
cream or else!
From where I sit, whether it
should hare cream or tomatoes is
simply a matter of taste. This is

prejudices are matters of taste

Social Security Expansion,
Complete Alaska Defenses
Urged By Western Governors
SALT LAKE CITY VP) Extension of the federal social se
curity program was favored here by western state executives.
They proposed that the program be "extensively broadened both
as to coverage, and amount of benefits to Individual recipients."
The western governors' confer
ence, which concluded a two dav
session, instructed Frank Bane,
airector oi tne council ot state
governments, to draft a resolution
containing their proposal.
The governors suggested that
only by expansion of the federal
old age insurance program to
cover all persons could the prob
lem ol providing assistance lor
the aged and infirm be met satisfactorily.
Action on resolutions was ta
ken in executive session. It was
apparent, however, that several
governors were opposed to pro
