For Cease Fire
Over Chiang’s Forces
BY ASSOCIATED PRESS
Nationalist China asked the
conquering Communists today for
a cease fire and immediate peace
negotiations. The armies of Presi-
dent Chiang Kai-shek have been
battered so thoroughly, it seemed
unlikely they could offer much
more than token battle.
The action was by the executive
yuan which is controlled by
Chiang. It mav negotiate for
peace but the legislative yuan
must approve its decisions.
Whether the Communists, aflush
with triumph after triumph over
Chiang's inept generals and troops,
would agree to talk peace re-
mained to be seen. The answer
seemed to lie in how tired the
Communists might be from cap-
turing Manchuria and virtually
all North China.
Foreign diplomats in Nanking
were Informed that the Chiang
government will start moving
south to Canton Friday. Most
embassies wanted to stay at Nan-
king, which is in immediate peril
of capture by the Commjunists.
The older capital of Pelpir.g is
surrounded by Reds and separate
peace talks are on there.
The government's decision to
ask a peace conference almost
certainly foreshadows the resigna-
tion of Chiang as president and
his retirement from the leadership
Chiang, who adamantly has re-
fused to bargain with the Com-
munists except on his own terms,
already has sent his car and a
number of other personal posses-
sions to Formosa, where he is ex-
pected to retire.
Announcement of the govern-
ment's decision to go to Canton
was made to foreign embassies
verbally, with promises that for-
mal written notification would
follow soon, authoritative sources
British Plan Advanced
A British government source
said Britain will recognize Israel

British plan to guarantee peace
In the middle east.
Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin
told parliament yesterday the
British will free Jews interned on
Cyprus. He endorsed strongly
peace negotiations now in prog-
ress between Israel and Egypt.
Optimism prevailed over the talks,
now in the critical stage, with the
boundaries of the Negev desert of
southern Palestine at stake.
Debate leading to the confirma-
tion of Dean Acheson as secretary’
of state gave evidence the Tru-
man administration will pursue
its so-called tough policy toward

WASHINGTON. Jan. 19—(U.R)—
Senator Claude Pepper (Democrat.
Florida) today sought an early
showdown within the senate labor
committee on the Taft-Hartley
He told his colleagues he is
prepared to move Friday for ap-
proval of a bill which would re-

But Senator Robert A. Taft

served notice that he Is ready to
block any attempt by Democrats
to bring out a new labor bill with-
out holding committee hearings.
He told committee members
that if Pepper goes through with
his plan, he himself will offer a
list of amendments V> the
repealer. This, he said, will pre-
vent the committee from taking
premature action on it.

to increase the national minimum
wage from 40 to 75 cents an hour

he wants to be sure the "exceed-
ingly sacred" rights of U.S. citi-

The winter's worst cold wave sent

Temperatures sank to 30 below

wave swept eastward on the heels
of a storm center that kicked up
a tornado in Mississippi, a blizzard

Today, the storm center lashed
across Michigan, heading north-
northeastward. Winds up to 60 miles
an hour were clocked at Flint. Midi.
The mercury was below or near
zero as far south as Arkansas.
The fast-moving cold front caused
a tliree-xninute tornado to whip

one person and injured 13 others,
two critically, as it ripped through

A master calendar system for El
Reno, designed to prevent the
scheduling of two major events in
the city on the same night, is being
prepared by the Jaycee Jaynes and
the chamber of commerce, it was
announced today by Mrs. Jack Dill,
The calendar will be centered
around the regular meeting times
of all organizations in the city.
Groups scheduling a program,
large party, special event or athletic
event, will be requested to check
with the chamber of commerce
before setting the actual date. Close
cooperation with the project will
prevent scheduling of two major
events on the same date.
Mrs. Dill said all organizations
are asked to give the chamber of
commerce the regular meeting dates
and hour not later than Feb. 15.
This will give the two organlaationa
sufficient time to compile the in-
formation and start the scheduling
