But as the naval committee resumed its hearings on the nomination, Pauley’s optimism arous-j only a hollow echo in senate administration circles.  Not Gaining Ground One democratic strategist expressed the belief that Pauley has not won over any voters during the lengthy hearings, and may have lost one or two. He repeated that he did not see how the former California oil man could be confirmed. The committee consists of eleven democrats and seven republicans, i Paulev conceded that the situation within the committee was close, ; and said it might take some time to swing some of the members around to his side. He contended he has not yet had the opportunity to answer charges made against him.  His Side Not Heard ‘You must remember I haven’t put in an affirmative case yet,”  is? “i d - ..“ whcn  I  d 0. I think  the situation will change.  “As a rfiatter of fact, almost everybody has been discussed except my ability to be undersecretary of the navy.”  Meanwhile, new obstacles threatened another of President Truman’s recent nominees. Commodore James K. Vardaman. Jr., faced additional delay in t h e committee investigation of his qualifications for a 14-year term as a member of the federal reserve system’s board of governors.  It was learned that some members of the banking subcommittee acting on the nomination were considering the subpoena of additional witnesses to testify on the pre-war business and banking background of Vardaman, who has been serving as naval aide to Mr. Truman.  *  WASHINGTON, March I.-rn The United States has invited the Soviets to come here and talk over a 11,000,000,000 loan.  This was discussed today by a mghranking government official as President Truman told confr** he soon will recommend addling $1,250,000,000 to the lend-mg powers of the export-import bank to take care of loans to countries other than Britain.  Mr. Truman’s message said treasury funds will be loaned only to Britain—providing con-approves a projected $3.-  750.000.000 credit. Other borrow-f^J^Uhave to go to the export-import bank.  m The proposed British credit was described as a “unique case” which would “not set a precedent for loans of treasury funds ! to other countries.

From Washington came a re-port from President Truman’s steel fact-finding board, ruling on two points in the controversy!

They are Iran, Austria and China, but there are other areas less urgently involved.  Efforts have been under way for some time, it was learned, to get the Russians to agree to withdrawal of allied troops from Aus-,.*a—but without success.  As for Iran, tomorrow is the generally accepted deadline for evacuation of Soviet forces there, but official reports reaching Washington say there is virtually no evidence that they intend to pull out by that time.  Manchuria Causes Concern . Meanwhile there is growing concern among many officials as to Soviet intentions in Manchuria rn view of recent reports that Red  a jmy forces there show signs of ■toying on indefinitely.  The Manchurian situation is not considered by many authorities here to be critical at the mo  ment, but private comment underscored Byrnes warning that we do not want to stumble and stagger into a situation where no power intends war, but no pow- er  will be able to avert war.” TTie main points of the speech which diplomatic officials stressed as of great importance in the development of a more vigorous American leadership in world affairs were these:  I. The United States intends to !iy e  folly fo tlte principles of the United Nations charter and to use all its influence to see that other, nations do the same.  U. S.
