Attorneys for Lewis made only a Lewis Contempt Ruling Due Monday one-sentence argument: failed to the trial of jury cases. Heaviest dnmaffe asked is which Bert Gile.

DC Gasperi, who has been cam- paigning so vigorously that his aides have feared for his health, cov- ered the nation from north to south in one day. The premier repeated his warning that a communist victory would mean the end of American aid to Italy. In Trieste the atmosphere was tense as preparations were made lor a rally of all pro-Italian political parties. The Allied military govern- ment has authorized a rally of persons. Many felt this may turn into an anti-Russian, demonstration to 'discuss the western power pro- posal to return the free territory to Italy. McCarthy, Taft Clash on Housing Bill Amendments Washington W) President Truman's plea for fast action on the Taft Ellcnder Wagner long range housing bill collided today with a hot Senate scrap over the The issue was this: Should the Senate approve a batch of amendments sponsored by Senator McCarthy Or should it okay instead a sheaf of changes backed by Senntor Tart (R.-Ohlol? He Is one of the spon- sors of the T-E-W bill designed to encourage construction of new homes by 1958. Tatt and his supporters contend there are few important differences between the two sets of proposals. But members of this group insist their amendments should be adopted because they have been approved by the Senate banking committee, while McCarthy's have not. McCarthy, on the other hand. holds that his amendments would make for a better bill. McCarthy's amendments there ,..-o 10 of them actually re- present a housing bill he Introduced somo time ago. The Senate bank- ing group gave it no consideration. Instead it approved a scries of X-E-W amendments drafted by Sonntor-lP'liindiM-s (R.-VO for the Senate-House committee on hous- ing. Taft told reporters he might go along with some of the technical McCarthy amendments. But he said he Is flatly opposed to altering the hotly contested public housing sec- tion the way McCarthy wants. McCarthy has proposed that wel- fare or relief families be given priority on the public hous- ing units for vides. which the bill pro- Fleet of B-29's Lands in Germany Forrestal, ruman Overridden Million Added to Original Bill for 55 Groups Washington The House passed and sent to the Senate to- day a bill providing to start expanding the Air Forces to 70 croups. The vote was 339 to 3. Only Rep- resentative Powell (D.-N. Y-) and the two American Party mem- bers from New York, Representatives Isacsoii and Marcantonlo, were agnlnst it. Here's what the bill contained as It wcnV to the Senate after a day of debate that included sharp warn- ings that the nation, must arm to counter Soviet aggression: For the Air Forces: Cash, 100.000 and contract authority. For the Naval Bureau of Aero- nautics: Cash, and con- tract authority, By a vote of 115 to 0. the House added to a. bill originally designed to finance a 55-group air force all of it Is In oon- l.rm-.t authority for which cn.sh be provided later unless Cougreis cancels it. The Increase was proposed by Chairman Tabcr (R.-N. Y.) of the House appropriations committee. The action was not final, however, since the House still must act on other parts of the bill and the Senate has not considered It at all. No one explained, nnd no one in the House apparently knows, just how many additional planes the extra money will provide. Smaller Torcr A 70-group Air Force has been urged by Air Secretary Symington, although Secretary of Defense For- restal has recommended a smaller force. President Truman said today he la supporting Porrcstal's recommenda- tions to the limit and does not know why Symington is diHering witH them. Asked whether he plans to "spank Symington. Mr, Truman said he will answer that later. Air Secretary Symington liad no direct comment on Mr. Truman's re- marks at a news conference. The President's press conference ranged over a variety of subjects and brought an indirect prediction from the President that he will have four more years in the White House. Commenting on the Bogota upris- ing, the President said he was very sorry it happened. He said he wna as much surprised as everyone else. Mr. Truman said Secretary or State Marshall commented on the communist angle very well. Marshall attributed the trouble to Intcrna- .tonal communism. Life Keport Turning to politics, a reporter said Life magazine had reported the President would nominate General Owight D. Elsenhower for the Dem- ocratic presidential nomination, Mr. Truman said Life may know a lot of things he did not and most of them are not facts. He placed in the same category what a reporter called another "Life report" that the President would send Elsenhower to Russia to see Stalin. He said he did not Intend to do that, that the general is going to run a university (Columbia.) The President had no comment on. the Nebraska primary except to re- nark smilingly that he was elected unanimously out then-. He referred to his lone entry on the Democratic jrcsldentlal ballot. Politics came up al.-io in connec- tion with the President's defense of the He said he merely wanted to Improve the appearance as contemplated or- ginally by Thomas Jefferson.

Baker, writing in the Ketchlknn Dally Chronicle, today said, that Representative Margaret C. Smith (R.-Me.) is "correct" in saying that-.Russian planes "'have violated Alaskan skies'." The article added, however, that both American and Russian planes have crossed the border into each other's territory over a period of sfivi.'rnl months. (Mrs. Smith, a member of the House armed services committee, said in Waterville, Tuesday night that "the people have not been told that the Russian press and radio speak of Alaska as a part of Russia and that jet planes have violated Alaskan skies." The publisher said also that a "mystery first reported seen in Kiska harbor by an Ameri- can pilot over two weeks ago, ling- ered in Aleutian island waters for about ten days. The article stated that the Navy had a fix on the submarine by radar several times and awaited word from Washing- ton as to what action to take. West and Kentucky.
