a $400 check. But Billings' check
Waters went looking for Bill
ings, found him on a street and
asked what he was going to do
about the check. Said Billings:
"Why, there's nothing wrong
with that check. Lemme borrow
your car and I'll go to the bank
right now and get your money."

Boyle announced the pressure
campaign in Key West, Fla., af
ter conferences with Mr. Tru
man. He said the administration
wants party members in Con
gress to support the party plat
form with their votes.
Some southern Democrats did
n't subscribe to all sections of
that platform, particularly the
plank pledging enactment of civil
rights legislation.
These lawmakers form most
of the members of the democra
tic bloc who haven't gone along
with the President's domestic
program In the past. They are
the party members most likely to
oppose other controversial pro
posals of Mr. Truman, including
repeal of the Taft-Hartley act
and his plan for compulsory
health Insurance.
While Boyle was urging that
pressure be put on the balking
Democrats, Senator Murray ID
Mont) held out something of an
olive branch to them.
Murray told reporters he
doubts that Congress could pass
either Taft-Hartley repeal or
compulsory health insurance
measures at the coming session.
He urged that they be given
study, but not be pushed to a
showdown at this time.
Extension Of Draft
To Be Asked In '50
(Continued from Page One)
congressional leaders cited sev
eral points to support his re
quests. The draft Is needed, he said,
to back up President Truman's
declaration that the "United
Slates supports the powerful
forces for freedom, justice and
peace which are represented by
the United Nations and the free
nations of the world."
Johnson added that Acheson
fears the end of selective serv
ice might be regarded abroad
as Inconsistent with our policies
under the Atlantic pact and mili
tary assistance program.
Finally, he said, unsettled
world conditions which caused
passage of the 1948 peacetime
draft still prevail.
Johnson's request to the Sen
ate and House merely asked a
three-year extension of the draft
act as it stands now.
Seems To Be Concession
Since the present act Is con-
sideiably less than the adminis
tration originally asked, this ap
peared to be a concession to a
strong congressional feeling that

Originally the administration
wanted the right to draft men
for at least two years service In
the 18 through 25 age bracket.
Congress cut this down to 21
months, and gave 18 year olds
the chance to resign.

Colo) and other draft critics said

Salvation Army
Christmas Plans
Not Chest Deal
The Salvation Army's Christ
mas program la not a part of the
Community Chest campaign.
Capt. Claude Bowden today ex
plained that throughout the na
tion and other countries recog
nizing Christmas, the Salvation
Army carries out a Christmas
program of distributing food and
clothing to needy families. '
The extent to which Christmas
giving is made possible depends
upon local contributions toward
this specific cause, said Bowden.
He said that 600 letters have
been mailed out to residents of
the area, and the Salvation Army
ketlle Is out on the city streets.
However, he emphasized that
this is not a drive to collect any
specific amount. He said the pur
pose is to raise only the funds
that may be contributed volun
tarily. No pressure will be exert
ed from any source, and persons
receiving letters who do not wish
to contribute are advised to dis
regard the letter, he said.
By no means should the con
tribution be considered a chest
donation, he stated.
He differentiated by stating
that the Salvation Army's budEet
share from the chest goes for the
year round administration and
operation of the local program.
The Christmas program is for
a specific purpose. Grocery or
ders and in many cases elothine
and some toys are purchased for
neeay lamines. Also a Christmas
party Is sponsored. An estimated
150 children are expected for the
party scheduled next 'Wednesday
at 7:30 p.m. at the Army head
quarters, 1005 Winchester street.
Candy, fruit and nuts will be dis
tributed to give the children an
enjoyable Christmas, said Bow
den. A limited number of toys
