Committee Commends Pauley The first announcement of the withdrawal came from Chairman Walsh (D-Mass) of the senate na- val affairs committee after a 30- minute closed session of the group. At the same time, Walsh hand- ed reporters a statement declar- ing that the committee "com- mends" Pauley "for liis patriotic action in requesting the president to withdraw his nomination." The action wound up six weeks of controversy which boiled up at one point in the explosive resig- nation of Harold L. Ickes as sec- retary of interior. Ickes had criti- cised tho nomination. The White House made public an exchange of letters between the president and Pauley shortly after the note of withdrawal was ent to Leslie Biffle, secretary of the senate. Itctains Truman's Confidence After expressing his "full con- fidence" in Pauley, the president wrote, "I shall reluctantly with- draw your nomination." "But I shall do so not without ironical the presi- dent added. "Your honor, integ- gity, fidelity to duty and capacity for public service have been com- pletely established. "All of these considerations and circumstances fully justify the confidence which I reposed in you and which prompted me to call you to tho service of the department of the navy. So, you stand before your countrymen af- ter vicious and unwarranted at- tacks with integrity unscathed, with ability unquestioned, with honor unsullied."

Ambassador Hussein Ala of Iran called at tlie state depart- ment to see Loy Henderson, chief of the office ot middle eastern af- fairs, asserting he was seeking the latest information on condi- tions in his own countries. The ambassador told reporters that the Russian action in sending re- inforcements into Iran was "quite unexpected. It has taken us by II "i surprise." but ho was without of- _" ._ iicial advices from his capital. 3. Some interest was manisfost- ed by officials here in press dis- patches from Iran stating that n Russian force at Karaj, only 20 miles from the Iranian capital, included Sherman tanks.

Ickes testified that Pauley had told him that he could raise from oil men for the dem- ocratic campaign if the adminis- tration abandoned efforts to got government title to tidolands oil areas. Says Proved Charges False Ickes referred to this as the "rawest proposition" he had ever received. Pauley denied he had suggested it. In a letter dated today. Pauley told the president that all charg- er; made against him "have been answered and shown to be false Asserting that he had repeated- ly stated he would not consider asking withdrawal until he had an opportunity to answer, Paul- continued: "No honest man quits under fire. That is why I have stood my ground until the firing ceased Pauley added: "Immediate Antidote" 'But no matter how complete the answers to false charges may be, I dp not believe there is any immediate antidote for tho cur- rent hysteria that has been en- gendered by these misrepresen- tations. Under these circumstan- ces I do not feel that I would have the opportunity to render the navy or you the high order of service both deserve. According- ly, I ask that you withdraw my nomination." Mr. Truman replied in his let- ter that Pauley's belief that there is no immediate antidote "to the tactics which have been employed against is "the only reason I would accept for the action you now ask mo to take."

The strike had kept the citv in n state of high tension, which was increased by a surprise dem- onstration yesterday when near- ly persons paraded past tho commission's Headquarters. The Halo-Slovene anti-Fascist union, sponsor of the strike said the strike "suspended" as a sign of willingness to collaborate with Alilod authorities although military government officials had turned down a request to disband the civil police.
