Wins National

only one teacher in all the eight
years she has spent in a one-room
Georgia schoolhouse today won
the national spelling bee.
Freckled, honey-haired Mattte
Lou Pollard of Thomason, Ga., be
came the champion because she
knows how to spell 'maggoty' and
"Chlorophyll," as well as 50 other
tough ones.
It was no easy triumph.
Dimpled, pretty Sonya Dodolfo
of Chicago, whose father is a Fil
ipino scientist and whose mother
is a Russian-born journalist, left
the Philippines only two years ago.
But she was right in there until
m a g g o t y" came along. She
thought it was maggotey.
Mattie Lou, who won sixth
place in the national here last
year, knew better. And when she
also spelled another word, chloro
phyll," as the rules provide, she
became the champion speller of 6,
000.000 school kids.
Her teacher, grandmotherly Mrs.
G. H. Phillips, a Georgia school
marm for 25 years, aayi Mattie
Lou always has been a right good
speller, far better than the other
33 children in the school.

creases where tenants agree to
them in exchange for leases to
run .through 1948.

over until next week.
The amendment, which the
house has approved in slightly
different form, would permit vol

Delay Granted
In Disposal of
Camp White
WASHINGTON'. May 29-,P)-The
war assets administration, an
nounced today that advertising
for bids on the hospital area at
Camp White, Med ford. Ore., has
been postponed until July 2, ex
tending the final disposition to
July 31.
The agency said it is "contrary
to its general policy" to delay dis
posal of .any surplus property but
"in this particular instance the
state of Oregon had evidenced
an interest in acquiring the hos
pital for conversion and utiliza
tion as a state mental institution.'
PORTLAND. Ore.. May 29-)-Oregon
legisldtive leaders said to
night that the 30-day extension
on disposal of Camp White was
not likely to benefit Oregon.
A bill to permit ' the state to
take over the Camp White hos
pital was vetoed by Governor
Snell earlier this year. An initia
tive petition to submit the mat
ter to the voters then was filed.
If 19 000 signatures are obtained,
it will go on the ballot in No
vember, 1948.
Sen. Irving Rand. Portland, one
of the petition signers, said
"there is no way that a 30-day
delay could possibly, do us any
good. It could not be acted on by
the people in that short a time."
Russians Win
A-Control Point
LAKE SUCCESS, May 28-JP-Russia
gained a minor decision in
the United Nations atomic ener
gy commission today but the big
tissue of the veto in atomic con
trol was still to be fought out.
The Soviet edge came when
the commission's working com
mittee adopted unanimously i
Rusian-tporuiored resolution re
affirming a general assembly de
cision that any International ays
tern of atomic control should op
erate "within the framework of
the security council," where Rus
sia and the other four big powers
hold the veto.
Until today's meeting. Ameri
can Deputy Delegate Frederick H.
Osborn had insisted he would re
ject such a resolution on the
grounds that it was not clear and
left the way open for the Rus
sians to claim that all functions in
the atomic field should be made
subject to the veto.
However, after being beaten on
what he called a clarifying
amendment. Osborn backed down.
