Sir Gerald Templer to lead an all-out drive to wipe out Communist terrorists in tin and rubber rich Malya. Templer, 53, was named high commissioner to Malaya with wide powers. Besides holding the normal political authority of a nigh com- missioner, he will direct all mili- tary and police strategy against Communist terrorists. He succeeds Sir Henry Gurney, J who was ambushed and 'shot to death by Red raiders last October.

It was the first get together of the congressional ses- sion for a group whose decisions may wield powerful influence over pending legislation and this, year's presidential election. The closed-door meeting was in the office of Sen. Byrd of Virginia. At least 14 senators from nine Southern states attended. Sen. Russell of Georgia, who long has acted as floor leader for campaign with Prime Minister Winston Churchill. In announcing the appointment to a news conference. Colonial Sec- retary Oliver Lyttleton said: "We are convinced that he is the right man for the job." The costly battle against the flit- ting Communist terrorists has been raging since soon after the end of the war. Britain has been spend- ing about 140. million. dollars a year in the fight Lyttleton estimated there still are between 3.000 and armed Communists in Malaya. Their hit and run attacks have slowed rub- ber production. Britain now has in Malaya British troops, over Ghurkas and other soldiers. Adieson and Bradley Called WASHINGTON of State Acheson and Gen. Omar Bradley were called to testify this afternoon as the Senate Foreign Relations Committee began con- sidering the proposed addition of Greece and Turkey to the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza- tion From all indications the secre- try of state and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff wfll have no trouble persuading the senators to bring the two nations into the Western European defense setup. Chairman Connally (D.-Tex.) told reporters he anticipated no great difficulty in -sinning Senate ratification of the prooosed proto- col. He said, however, he did not expect the Foreign Relations Com- mittee to act on it today. He said first to Acheson's arid testimony before the closed session. ConnaUy left open the question of whether any additional hearings would be held. He said so far no opponents have asked to be heard. Churchill is Reluming Today To Washington OTTAWA Britain's Prime Minister Winston Churchill leaves for Washington today after declar- ing that the West will stand shoulder to shoulder against aggression "should our hopes of peace be blasted." Churchill is primed to deliver a tough talking second in three a joint session of Congress Thursday. It will wind up his visit to Canada and the United States. Churchill ended his week-end of conferences %vith Canadian ment leaders Monday night with a speech which hailed the 12-nation Atlantic alliance as the West's surest guarantee" of peace. Speaking at a lake trout and roast beef dinner given in his honor by -the Canadian government, he declared: "No one can predict with cer- tainty that wfll happen. can see for themselves the strange clouds that move and gather on the horizons, sometimes so full of menace and sometimes j fading away." j "Peace does not sit untroubled in her he added, with typical Churchfllian flourish.

"We all mean to stand by each other, here in Canada, in the U. S, in Britain, in Western Europe." With the help of an all-European army bolstered by German units, he said, "we stand with the United States, ready under the supreme NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Or- ers afterward that "no formal ac- tion was taken" but 2 variety of subjects was discussed. Russell said the senators pres- ent were unanimous in opposing any changes in Senate rules. What the Southerners particular- ly oppose is any change which would make it easier to shut off debate. By prolonged debate, or filibus- tering, they have been able in the past to keep the Senate from vot- ing on bills such as President Truman's civil rights measures calling for federal anti-lynching, anti-poll tax and anti-discrimina- tion laws. Under present rules, it takes the affirmative votes of 64 two-thirds of the Senate's mem- shut off debate. Russell said the group also dis- cussed the pending Senate bill to give partial "home to cki- I zens of the District of Columbia, and proposals to give Hawaii and Alaska statehood. The statehood bills, asked by President Truman, are not popular with Southern Democrats. One of their points of concern is that the addition of four new senators might diminish the relative influ- ence of the Southern group in the Senate. Senators in addition to Byrd and Russell attending the -'strategy included George of Georgia, Robertson of Virginia, Maybank and Johnston of South Carolina.
