Robert L Larson about the rent control situation in Iowa but that he did not ask for a formal opinion The governor said he wanted the attorney generals opinion on the matter before appointing a rent investigator or taking any other action regarding rent de control in Council Bluffs The Council Bluffs city council has voted to decontrol rents and petitioned the governor for per mission to do so The governor had said he would appoint an in vestigator to study the rental sit uation in Council Bluffs before he decided After a Chicago judge Monday held the federal rent law to be il legal Governor Beardsley held up appointment of the investi gator The governor said Larson did not express his opinion on the matter immediately Larson was tied up in a meeting with his staff Wherry Asks Senate Unit to Hear Baruch on Foreign Aid Washington Leader Kenneth S Wherry asked the senate appropriations committee Thurs day to hear elder Statesman Bernard M Baruch before re viving the administrations foreign aid money bill After 4 days of heated debate the appro priation measure was Thursday comment and not available for Soys Truman Program Like Red Measures Chicago Illinois re publican leader told a GOP grass roots conference Thursday that points in President Trmnans fair deal program correspond to measures advocated by William Z Foster head of the communist party in the United States Fred A Virkus president of the Conference of American Small Business organizations and a former Illinois legislator made the charge in the keynote address prepared for delivery at the meet ing The 3day conference which Virkus said would be attended by delegates from 40 states was called in an announced attempt to reorganize republican national leadership and present a con structive alternative to new deal ism Most of the 100 rank and file republicans attending were delegates or alternates to the 1948 republican nominating convention Virkus charged that the last was a sham battle and that republican leadership was about as completely disorganized is if an atomic bomb had hit it Both parties he claimed have strayed far afield from the pre cepts of our constitution and the bill of rights He listed some of the points of President Trumans Jan 5 1949 message to congress which he said corresponds to steps advocated by Trmrjrrl KnVlPT back to committee late Wednesday on a parliamen tary technicality With an eye to fresh testimony Wherry said he would like the committee to hear Baruch who had some critical comments on the Marshall Plan when he re turned from a visit to Europe this week The financier and adviser to presidents said the foreign aid program is not as effective as it should be He indicated a belief that Europe might help itself more if the United States helped less Although Wherry insisted that he did not want to delay the bill unnecessarily he said the ap propriations committee should hear new evidence on the issues which have divided the senate To Discuss Bill Committee Chairman Kenneth McKellar planned to discuss the foreign aid measure with members Thursday or Fri day I dont see any reason why it shouldnt be reconsidered all down the line he said Thats what it was sent back to committee for Vice President Alben W Bark ley who as the senates presiding officer ordered the bill sent back to committee said that of course it will be passed Since the senate has 3 other big appropriation bills awaiting action it presumably will not return to the foreign aid measure for several days Into Committee Senator John L McClellan D forced the bill back into committee Wednesday at the clim ax of a 3hour parliamentary wrangle Senate Democratic Leader Scott W Lucas had used a parliamentary objection to kill McClellans ad mendment to earmark part of the Marshall Plan funds for surplus farm products McClellan then used the same weapon to block further senata consideration of the bill Cabinet of France Stays Paris UR Premier Henri Queuille Thursday staved off the threatened collapse of his cabinet the most stable France has had since the war by persuading 4 ministers to withdraw the resig nations they had submitted The middle of the road coalition which has governed for 10 months was thrust to the brink of dissolu tion by a sudden unheralded squabble over paying vacation bo nuses to government employes Quick work by Queuille caused the rebellious ministers to with draw their resignations Had they refused the premier would have been forced to turn in the resigna tion of his entire cabinet The 4 rightist ministers pre sented their resignations to Queu ille Thursday afternoon at an emergency meeting where he sought to resolve his differences with them over the bonuses The ministers were Robert Be tolaud minister for veterans and war victims Antoine Pinay un dersecretary of state for economic affairs Robert Bruyneel under secretary of state in the vice pre miers office and Jean Moreau undersecretary of state for air The crisis blew over a single day before the national assembly which approved the North Atlan tic pact Wednesday was scheduled to recess until October Washington Congress members appeared Thursday to have won a major victory in the hot dispute over their right to help decide whether atomic secrets are to be shared with other nations Lawmakers greeted with obvi ous satisfaction the presidential olive branch held out Wednesday at a closed door meeting of state department military atomic and congressional policy makers Mr Truman told the senate house atomic committee through Secretary of State Acheson that he feels any action on the share theatom issue must have the sup port of both congress and the ex ecutive branch of government Have Uranium A vital factor in the question of sharing the nations abomb se crets with Britain and Canada is the fact that the United States is largely dependent on those coun tries for its supplies of the material that makes atomic weapons possible Announcement of the presidents position as outlined by Acheson was made by Senator McMahon chairman of the joint committee following the 90min xite meeting McMahons statement further disclosed that Acheson acting on presidential instructions had out lined a plan for maintaining the status quo and also for conduct ing exploratory discussions with the British and Canadians No More Secrets Senator Hickenlooper ranking GOP member of the joint committee said he understood Achesons plan to mean the Unit ed States would not divulge any atomic secrets on a higher level than at present And this level he told a reporter is far below that involving bomb and industrial in formation He added he is satisfied now that congress and the joint com mittee will not be bypassed in what he termed the socalled

Acheson appeared before the house foreign affairs committee to make his plea for the arms pro gram already under attack by in fluential congress members Psychological Effect Acheson mere pres ence of the large Russia forces has had a psychological effect that has been damaging to recov ery stability and has been a major influence in the loss of freedom and self determination in im portant areas of Europe Nor can the possibilities of di rect military aggression be ig nored he said When political aggression fails as it has failed so far in western Europe totalitarian regimes are often tempted to gain their objectives by military means particularly when they consider that no effective resistance is pos sible It is our aim to forestall that possibility by making it clear that military aggression against the na tions of western Europe can be undertaken only at great cost and with no assurance of success Would Secure Peace Acheson repeatedly told the committee that if this country woulo back up the pledges of the North Atlantic treaty with mili tary assistance he believes would be secured and no aggres sor would dare take on the whole combination of western powers fundamental pledge of the reaty that an attack on one sig natory will mean an attack on alls closes the door to piecemeal ag gression Acheson said The bulk of the proposed arms aid would go to pact nations Acheson said that in the light of treaty pledges and with the arms program he did not believe any aggressor at this time would dare to take the desperate gamble of an allout war The gangster mind likes to amble only on sure things said It is the aim of this program to insure that successful swift and comparatively effortless military action by an aggressor would be impossible and therefore to maka the gamble too hazardous to be tempting AP Wlrephoto WATER WATER JUST ABOUT EVERYWHERE Heavy late afternoon traffic moves slowly through water covering intersection of Queens boulevard and Grand
