(AP) Sen. Lodge (R.-Mass.) today led and then abandoned n move to reverse a Senate vote calling tor Congressional action on future assignment of troops to Europe. Lodge first moved to strike out cf a pending resolution a section j amended by Sen. McClellan (D.-, Ark.) yesterday to say that no more than four American divi- sions should be dispatched to Eu- rope "without further Congres- sional approval." Then, after debate had gone on for nearly ar hour. Lodge told the Senare he is a realist and realized Irom the outset his pro- posal had no chance of approval. He said he mrrely had offered liis amendment to draw the issue sharply and that since the debate had made It clear, he was with- drawing the amendment. He had stressed that the Sen- ate ought to back down on Its stand that Congress should pass on every deployment of troops to Europe. The Senate refused late today to declare against sending ground troops to Europe until the western Allins are assured of of the air there. Sen. Kern (R.-Mo.) '.proposed that no additional S.iroops go to Europe until top U, S.-mill-; tary leaders "should certify to the Congress that In their opin- ion, sufficient air strength will be available to control the air over, western to the degree nec-i cssary to assure the safety and effectiveness of sucn ground troops."

The report was made by Dr. Wolfgang Huber, Arno Brasch, and A. Astrack ot the Electronized Chemicals Cor- poration, Brooklyn, N. V. They said such containers of food have been found to be sterile after exposure to such irradiation. The same has been found true, they said, of drug products.

In some cases, they said, a combination of old-fashioned preservation methods with irra- diation proved best. Gen.
