Aside from the veto provision and another setting up special treatment for seven agencies, the bill woulc give Truman practically a free hand in streamlining the complex ex- ecutive establishment, which in 2( years has grown from 350 to agencies and from to 000 employes. The measure now goes to the Senate, where former President Her- bert Hoover ran strong interference for it yesterday before the Senate executive expenditures committee. Hoover is chairman of the com- mission created by the last Con- gress to map reforms for the whole executive branch. In its first report yesterday, the commission recommended a vast rearrangement of agencies includ- ing merger which would leave only some 20 offices where 65 now exist. The commission described that re- port as a "skeleton" with details to come later. Hoover filled in some of the gaps. In testimony before the committee and later, speaking to a news conference, he said: 1. If all the proposals offered by the group are followed the taxpayer should realize a saving from the resulting economies in government. 2. An additional cabinet-rank de- partment probably will be recom- mended a department of public welfare, to absorb -the present fed- eral security headed by Oscar Ewing 3. The commission will not rec- ommend abolition of the Interior department, as reportedly recom- mended by one of Its "task force." Besides the Defense department, other affected agencies are the In- terstate Commerce commission, Se- curities and Exchange commission, Federal Reserve .board, National Me- diation board, Railway Retirement board and Railway Adjustment board.

The 56-year-old primate of this predominantly Catholic country also was found guilty of trying to over- throw the communist government and of speculating In foreign cur- rency. The court rejected Prosecu- tor Gyula Elapl's demand for a death sentence, but ordered the confiscation of the cardinal's pos- sessions. All -six of the cardinal's co- defendants were convicted, three of them on the treason charge. Their sentences ranged from three years to life. The sentences and the charges on whioh the court convicted them: Duke Paul Esterhazy, richest man in prewar Hungary, 15 years; trying to overthrow the government and foreign ex- change speculation. The Rev. Ondras Zakar, the cardinal's young secretary, six years; trying to overthrow the government and treason. The Rev. Miklos Nagy, secre- tary of the lay organization, Catholic action, three years; foreign money speculation and failing to "Inform' tn'e 'govern- ment of crimes. The Rev. Bela Ispenky, Father Nagy's secretary; life imprison- ment; treason and foreign cur- rency speculation. Professor Justin Baranyay, professor of church law at Buda-, pest university, 15 years; trying to overthrow the government. Laszlo Toth, former editor of the Catholic paper Nemzeti, ten years; treason. The court ordered .that all the co-defendants be deprived of then- jobs, fortunes or political rights. The sentences were handed down after a swift three-day trial by a five-man court composed of the professional justlst, Vilmos Olthys, and four associates drawn from a workers' panel. Plans Appeal Of the defendants, only Father Zakar did not appeal. Cardinal Mindszenty spoke a loud, clear "yes" when asked if he wanted to appeal to carry the case to a higher court. Prosecutor Gyula Elapl protested all but one sentence, that of Father Ispenky. He again demanded the death sentence for Cardinal Mind- szenty. The prosecutor's action made It possible for the appeals court to mpose even more severe sentences, as well as to reverse the people's court or lighten the penalties. The appeals court is not obliged to act within ten days as it would n" the case of a death sentence. The life imprisonment sentence (Continued on Page 11, Column 8.) CARDINAL i Halvard M.

Senate Labor Hearings Drain Time Schedule By Max Hall Washington New signs of stormy weather for the adminis- tration labor bill were hung out to- day, with only three days left of the scheduled 10-day Senate hear- ings. Things 'were pretty quiet yester- day and last night while Republi- cans on the labor committee leisurely questioned William H. Davis and the Democrats fidgeted impatiently. But after listening to Davis, for- mer chairman of the War Labor board, the committee still had 3( witnesses on Its schedule. The big question 'Was how to fit into the remaining time the views that these 30 want to express on the Truman labor bill, which would knock out most of the Taft-Hartley act. Senator Pepper told re- porters the committee may have to limit the time for each witness. He added he Is "still hoping the Senators will decide they had ra- ther hear the witnesses than them- selves." Senator Morse said he ias learned that the Democrats will propose a 45-minute limitation. He predicted "heck to pay" if they (to. Senator Taft (R.-Ohlo) said he iears rumors that the hearings may be extended beyond the February 10 deadline. All this fighting over :he time element is more important than a mere procedural difference. Labor unions are in a hurry, to jet rid of Taft-Hartley. So are the eight Democratic members of the committee. Republicans insist on de- ailed questioning, on the ground hat the issues are too' important to be passed over lightly. Davis testified for nearly five lours yesterday, ending up at p. m.

Two months ago the department was willing to pay only about half. 2. Two months ago the high-, way department appeared re- luctant to proceed with any plans for the relocation of the highway. Now Its interett in co- operating with the board of park commissioners, which li planning to complete dredging of Lake Winona, indicates change in attitude. Highway department agreement to pay for Its fill on a new way 61 might reduce considerably the cost of the park board dredg- ing, since the highway relocation would Involve dredging and filling along almost the entire south side of the lake. City officials want to that money as well as having highway 61 relocated. C. W. Slebrecht, president of the board of park commissioners, wan one of the city officials who met with highway officials here Monday, greeted the plan with enthusiasm. No Work Thi.

In addition, the- state -would ac- quire any' land necessary for highway. "There Is Just, one disadvantage in this: This plan means nothing win be'done this year. has to handle some legal matters, acquire property and' draw plant. That takes time." City councilmen, appeared pleas- ed, too, with the new develop- ment. When City Engineer Carl W. Prank and Council President Wil- liam P. Theurer told them about the meeting last night, no objec- tion was raised. Highway officials present at the meeting here were OK O. Gladman, location and design engineer; S.
