Owen Lattimore has been accus- ed by McCarthy in Senate speeches of being a Communist. Lattimore has denied the charge. McCarthy added: "Acheson last week notified the world that we would not stand in the way of United Nations' recog- nition of Communist China. Inci- dentally, it is interesting to note that several weeks before he made that statement, Owen Lattimore made a speech in Philadelphia urg- ing the same, identical traitorous ity is simply to examine what must be done in practical terms.

Mr. Truman's speech was part of a program including his being awarded an honorary doctor of laws degree and a membership key in Phi Beta Kappa, the schol-j arship society. He will return to St. Louis this afternoon for a reunion of the 35th division, in which he served in the First World war. The President's speech added up to an implied warning to Russia that the emotions stirred up in this country by foreign policy de- bates do not indicate weakness in a democracy. He explained: "The democratic process is not alway easy.

His aim is to delay Senate action until the House has voted on a similar control- in I the hope that the measure will have tougher going in the House. Cain said some other he did not name rally to his cause. Senator Saltonstall commented yesterday that several Republicans want to speak on the issue. House leaders have agreed to abandon earlier plans to consider rent controls Monday. Instead the House will wait until the Senate has voted. The Senate and House almost never debate the same bill at the same time, Lucas, now busy with a re-elec- tion campaign, has made it clear to the Senate that he regards the con- tinuance of rent controls as a ma- jor political issue. Senators who attended a closed- door Democratic caucus this week quoted Lucas as saying he consid- ered the rent control issue one of the most important of the session. With Republicans driving hard to unseat seven Democratic senators this year and gain control of the Senate, Lucas apparently has con- vinced some reluctant Democrats to vote with him. Chairman Maybank (D.-S. C.) of the Senate banking committee told a reporter: "We have more than enough votes to pass this if we get motorcycle on which he was riding crashed into an automobile on the approach to the Mississippi river bridge. The accident occurred at p. m. when Smaglik was driving his motorcycle, apparently at high speed, across the dike toward Wi- nona, J. M. George, 209 Washington street, told police that he was en- tering the Wisconsin dike road from the Latsch island underpass. Mr. George that he began to drive ahead when he noticed the approaching motorcycle and stopped the car to allow the ma- chine to pass. Crashes Into Car Smaglik failed to pass the car, however, and crashed into the left front wheel of the automobile. The youth was hurled into the air by the impact and fell against a concrete curb 57 feet from the site of the crash. The cyclist was unconscious when an ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital where examination revealed that he had suffered a possible skull fracture and leg in- juries. He was still unconscious at noon today. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Isadore Smaglik. The motorcycle on which Smaglik was riding was pinned into the side of the automobile after the crash and Mr. George estimates damage to his car at about The mishap was the most serious traffic accident involving a motor- cycle reported to Winona police thus far this year. At High Speed Other motorists traveling on the dike at the time of the crash, stated that Smaglik was driving at an ex- tremely high speed immediately be- fore the collision. One eyewitness said that he saw the youth hurled 12 feet up into the j air by the impact. The accident was one of two re-, President Truman smiles while walking with Missouri university President Frederick A.

With the objection of a single senator enough to block an agreement, Cain was unwilling to say whether he would ever per- mit a voting time to be set. Both the Senate and House rent measures would continue present federal rent controls for six months. Rent control areas could get an- other six months of controls by asking for them. x Fitchburg Woman Killed by Train Madison, Prank Leiber, 32, town of Fitcbburg, was tilled Thursday night when she was struck by a North Western Railway "400" as she walked home from work at a farm, four miles south of here.

The board yesterday also author- ized the National Tank Mainten- ance Corporation, Iowa, to repair and paint the water tank at the pumping station at a cost of Since it is a main- tenance job, no advertising for bids was required, Board Secretary Henry C. Ahrens said. A plumber's license was issued to Hubert John Kramer. A section of pipe, about 300 feet long, is now being laid from, near the Hot Fish shop to the end of the line coming down the Sugar Loaf hill. This line, which has laid in the ground for many years, was found to be in good shape, and runs by most of the houses in Sugar Loaf. It was used when the brewery pumped water to the residences. ACTIVITIES INCREASING F.B.I. Head Says Communists Centered In Strategic Areas By Jerry Kern Washington J. Edgar Hoover has told Congress that U. S. Communists are going under- ground, and that there are more subversive activities in this coun- try than "at any period during the last world war." "Communism today is at a great- er height in the United States than either Nazism of Fascism was" during World War H. the F.B.I, director said. What's more, he add- ed, it is centered in strategic areas and in strategic industries. In tes- timony before a congressional com- mittee, Hoover said: "Forty-eight per cent of the membership of the Communist par- ty is in the basic industry of this country. In this manner they would be able to sabotage essential in- dustry in vital defense areas in the event of a national emergency. In Industrial Areas "Our investigations disclose that Communist activities are most pro- nounced in such strategic industrial areas as New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, California and Michigan. "Communist efforts toward infil- tration have been intensified in basic industries vital to our secur- ity such as steel, heavy machin- ery, mining, communications, transportation, the electrical Indus- try and the .maritime Industry." Hoover's statements were mads to a senate appropriations -subcom- mittee in testimony released last night. He reported that the recent trial of 11 Communist party leaders In New York prompted party mem- bers to institute a security pro- gram of their including an investigation of the party's own I executive committee.

In his testimony, which was tak- en by the committee several weeks ago, Hoover linked American Com- munism with 'foreign espionage. Hoaver put the number of actual Communist party members in this country at However, he said: "Hie fact remains that the party leaders themselves boast that for every member there are ten others who follow the party line and who are ready, willing and able to do the party's work. "In other words, there is a po- tential fifth column of peo- ple dedicated to this philosophy." Gold, Two Others Indicted As Spies Washington A Brooklyn grand jury today indicted Harry Gold, Philadelphia chemist, and two unidentified persons on charges of atom spying against the United States. The indictment was announced here by the Justice department. In addition to Gold, the indict- ment named "John Doe, alias 'John' and Richard Roe, alias and asserted that "the true and correct names" of these persons were un- known to the jurors.
