March II. Barkley (D-Ky.) said tmlay the administration will tight to restore in subsidies when housing legisla- tion is considered by the senate. Barkley talked with reporters at the White House after conces- sional leaders conferred with President Truman. The house re- Icctrd suhsidlc.1 on building ma- terials and another key fonturu of the president's housing pro- prices on o 1 d dwellings. The government was busy al- so rushing final touches on a new order -designed to slash com- mercial and industrial construc- ion so that more homes can be built. Will Center On Subsidies Barkley made clear that ad- ministration forces would attempt o revive all features of the ori- linal housing bill nskocl by Mr. Truman, but he said the major effort would be behind the sub- idv payments. With the Kentuckian nt the White House were Speaker Ray- )Urn, house democratic leader rtcCormnck (Mass.) and Senator McKcIlar president TO tcmpore of the senate. The government's order on ommercial type building was escribed by officials who have ecn n preliminary draft as drastic and far-reaching." It is scheduled for announcement soon. These officials, who asked that their names not be published, said the order will hold up con- struction of thousands or non- essential stores, office buildings and factoricj still in the blue- print stage. But they predicted it will hit hardest at proposed roadhouscs, night clubs, theaters nnd other amusement projects. These will not be banned entirely, but builders will have to show there- is n community need for such recreational fncilities. The new order is being drawn up by the civilian production ad- ministration and the National Housing Agency. They figure it will channel well over two- thirds of all building materials to residential construction. "There's no said one official, "with the goal new homes during the next two years." There has been no decision yet whether f> halt work on some rated condition. The plaintiff is asking that (Continued on Page 2 Column 4) JIDIllU commercial and industrial proj- ects already underway.

S.; Consistent In Distrust of Russia By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON, March Churchill under- took another talk today, an ans- wcr-to-qucstions talk at a lun- cheon given by newsmen. It was to be an "off-the-rcc- ord" affair su what he said could iiol_ be printed. For that reason many were going in the hope he might say more fully what is in his mind than he'd say for print. Some were going because this might be their last chance to see the Englishman who helped pull his country through its "finest hour." May Be Last Visit Churchill is an old man now, 72. He may not be back this way again. Ho wants to see the em- pire preserved. He said he would not liquidate it. There- is great power in Churchill s language and great charm in his husky voice If he came to America hoping his oldtim? magic would swing this country into an alliance with Britain, as a block to Russia, he failed. Fulton Speech Failed His Fulton, Mo., speech, where he made the proposal, was re- ceived cooly. Some senators call- ed it "shocking." It had small approval. There is a strange similarity in Churchill's language through the years, but tt.ero are contradic- tions in his career. When the old League of Na- tions, which failed pitifully, was 10 years olu Churchill called it n "granite rock" and "palace" to which the whole world would sooner or later resort in "full trust." Now Churchill calls the lea- gue's successor, the United Na- tions, a temple" which must be built upon a "rock."

March Prime Minister Attlee told the house of commons today that Winston Churchill in his Fulton Mo., speech of March 5 had "stated very clearly he spoke for himself only." Attlee said the government was not called upon to "express any opinion." The speech was attacked by Pravda in Moscow today as ad- vocating a British-American mil- itary alliance that would spell the end of the United Nations and the (breakup of the British- American-Soviet wartime coali- tion. Asked by Laboritc Tom Dri- berg if he would instruct the British information service in the United Slates to make it clear Churchill's speech did not rep- resent British policy, Attlee re- nlied: "The British information serv- ices in the United States are well aware that the policy of the gov- ernment in the United Kingdom is only to ba found in the state- ments of his majesty's ministers." He added that "the govcrp ment had no previous knowledg of the contents of the speech. Th( British ambassador was not call ed upon to approve or disap prove the contents of the speech beforehand." When asked by W. N. Warbey laborite, if he would "make 'i clear that the government entire ly disapproved of the tone and temper of this mischevous Attlee replied the gov- ernment was not called upon to express an opinion on a speech delivered in another country by a private individual.

Protest On Manchuria Also Asks Quick Reply To Note About Plans For Withdrawal from Iran By SPENCER MOOSA CHUNGKING. March II. (.Pi- Chinese nationalist and com- munist reinforcements today were reported moving to Mukden where, the cintral news agency said, the rival forces were battling after sudden withdrawal of Soviet troops. Chinese nrcss dispatches saM that thn communists, heavily out- numbering nationalist troops In the city of occupied tho power plant and northen district. Other reports said the central government had proclaimed mar- tial law in the skeleton city, whoso once-great industrial plants had been picked clean by the Russians. Both Moving In The press reports declared that elements of four nationalist armies were marching to Muk- den and that communist reinfor- cements were moving in from the north. Government elements were identified as from the 13th, 52nd. 1st nnd Cth armies. The Central Daily News said the nationalist 14th division enter- ed Mukden Saturday. The suddenness of the Soviet withdrawal was blamed for t h e "serious" street-fighting in Muk- don. Dispatches said the nation- alists did not have sufficient troops to cope with the situation. They said that for the past few clays Soviet authorities in Man- churia, from Marshal Kodinn Y. Malinovsky. Soviet commander, to junior officers, had hpi-n inac- cessible to nationalist officials. Bed Withdrawal Not General The Central News agency did not interpret the withdrawal from Mukden as a general Rus- sian evacuation of Manchuria. The ngcncy declared that six trains from Mukden had unload- ed troops, tanks, artillery and automobiles nt Changchun, Man- churia capital. Yet another report said Chang- chun was full of rumors that Soviet forces intended to quit the city. No known developments supported this. In Chungking., the Manchurian situation was discussed at a meet- ing presided over by Generalis- simo Chiang Kni-Shck. It also figured largely in talks among General George C. Marshall.
