Senate Hearing on Measure To Extend OPA Starts Off With Hot Battle of Words Charge of 'Hokum' By Witness Brings Angry Responses Tobey, Berkley Loud in Re- plies, Copchart Refers To Bowles, Porter Charges WASHINGTON, April Arthur Besse of the National Association of Wool Manufacturers today called OPA supporters guilty of "hokum" and set off a loud word row in the senate banking committee. Testifying at the start of hear- ings on legislation to extend price controls beyond June 30, Besse observed that administration leaders wanted OPA extended without "crippling amendments" and called this "hokum of the highest order." Senator Tobcy (R-NH) shouted for Beese to steer clear of opinion. "Are you sayinf, that anybody who favors extension of OPA is guilty of asked Senator Barkley Told by Beese that was the case, Barkley roared: "Then I'm guilty of hokum. You will have to improve your testimony before I have any res- pect for it." Tobey remarked that he was going to discount Besse's testi- mony.

Besse said he called the admin- istration .stand against crippling amendments because OPA is "crippled by its own inef- ficiency, stubborness and lack of realism." Bowles and Porter have declar- ed that amendments to the price control law adopted by the house would be inflationary. The house changes, including a guaranteed profit clause and a progressive end to subsidies, are before the senate. Porter Claims Public Support Downtown, Porter addressed a mass meeting of 3.000 OPA work- ers today, declaring: "I believe the opposition has reached its high point. There is public support for continued strong price control. "Those who have appraised the house bill objectively, including some of our critics in congress, agree that the bill has got to be readjusted." Porter added that given "ade- quate" legislation and "favorable circumstances." he was "pretty confident that we can hold the price line just about where it is I juries received when'a car he was driving and a truck collided 10% miles south of Guthrie.

Planes Strafed Lines CHUNGKING, April 22, China's snarled political prob- lems appeared no nearer solu- tion today after General Marshall held his first conference with Communist Leader Gen. Chou En-Lai since he returned from Washington. 'Neither government nor com- munist spokesman reported anv progress after the three-hour con- ference. A communist spokesman said Marshall listened without com- ment to Chou explain the politi- cal and military situation in China from his party's viewpoint. Chou Radios For Report Chou disclosed that Marshall had asked a communist .stiga- tion of the communist asserted claim that United States planes strafed communist lines in -the Szepingkai area last week.

He expressed the opinion that OPA now has completed the ma- jor part of its postwar price ad- justments. Besse Is Bitter _ Besse told the_ senate committee that what administration leaders are asking is that OPA be con- tinued "as is" and allowed for an- other year to "cripple industry and delay the attainment of high- er production levels." Senator Downey (D-Calif) said today OPA's chances in the senate may be considerably improved by mail from consumers who don't like the way the house treated the price control agency. "My mail and telegrams are running 20 or 25 to 1 in favor of continuing OPA without crippl- ing Downey told a reporter. "I am satisfied from talks in California that the people are overwhelmingly for it, except for a few business men." Noting that senators who want to pare down OPA are getting mail too, Downey said "I think it should make them hesitate" --------------K------------- HIS ATTEMPT WAS BALKED Although Zebulon Pike discov- ered the peak which bears his name in 1806, he was balked by snow, ice and hunger, in his at- tempt to scale the mountain.

A 1937 Chevrolet sedan driven by him crashed into the' east show window of the S. and Q. Clo- thiers. Another accident was in- vestigated at the corner of Four- teenth and Stockton. Garrett was traveling south on Broadway when he apparently lost control of his car, which bounced over a curb and crashed into the show window. Said Dodged Other Car The driver told police that his car was forced out of control when the driver of another car almost hit him. Officers investigating the ac- cident reported that the car was traveling about 28 miles per hour when the accident occurred about a.m. Passengers in the car were Jerry Garrett and Willie McNair. The right front and right back wheel of the car were damaged when it bounced over the curb and hit the building. Garrett was released Sunday morning after he made an cash bond, which he forfeited when he did not appear at the police station Monday morning. Apparel In Window Undamaged S. and Q. employees said that the glass that was broken out couldn't be replaced for several weeks, but said that none of the wearing apparel in the show window were damaged by the auto. A 1941 Ford panel delivery truck, owned by the Ada Green- house, driven by Bryce Tomlin collided with a 1934 Plymouth driven by Mrs. Geneva Gregory, 411 West Sixteenth, at the corner of Fourteenth and Stockton Sun- day morning. Police reports show that Mrs. Russian Fighter Planes Make Runs at U. S. Army Transport Coming in to Land at Vienna Were Flying P-39's Furnished by American Lend-Least; Fighters Fired Shots Off Plane's Wing; Happened In View of Large Crowd of Soldiers at U. S. Army Airport By LYNN HEINZERLING VIENNA, April Russian fighter planes made runs on a U. S. army C-47 transport and fired from two to four 37 millimeter shots off the plane's wing today as it came into the U. S. army airport at Tullin, just outside Vienna. Airmen at the field identified the fighters as P-39s furnished to Russia by American lend-lease. The four fol- lowed the transport right to the field, leaving only after it had touched ground. -The C-47 was on a test run and carried no passengers. Capt. James C. Baxter, the lot, was asked for a report as soon as he landed. Expressing in- dignation, Baxter said he saw two of the shots fired and added he believed there were others. "That's all right in a cross- country flight when you can just sit there and he said, "but I do not like it when you are in transition between flying and landing. I saw two white puffs from 37-millimeter cannon in the nose of a fighter and we could feel the concussion inside the plane." Crew Backs Pilot's Story Four other members of the transport's crew corroborated Baxter's-repprt. The pilot said he was wi.thin the 10-mile area around the airfield prescribed for American planes by the Russians when the Fighters appeared. Bax- ter was flying at feet and the Russians followed him all the way down, diving over and under his plane as he prepared to land, he said. Because the airport is inside the Russian occupation zone, the Russians have prescribed strict regulations for the operation of American aircraft. They muse remain within certain lanes when flying to and from the city and are not permitted to fly over Vi- enna. The flight from Vienna to Berlin must bo mndc via Frank- furt, although that Uikes planes far off the most economical route. Seen By Large Crowd Today's incident occurred in full view of a largo crowd of sol- diers at the; airport and corres- pondents who had gathered there to greet a party of 14 publishers flying to Vienna from Frankfurt. It took place about a half hour the arrival of the publish- ers' plane, which was not molest- ed.

Masataka Kaburagi, former chief of staff of the imperial Japanese'34th army, and four of his subordinates died on the gallows at Ward Road jail this morning for their part in the torture parade and strangulation of three American fliers at Han- kow in December, 1944. This was the first execution of war criminals by Americans in the China theater. The prisoners, their h a n d s bound, were led one at a time into the tiny execution chamber at 45 minute intervals. The charges upon which they were convicted were read to them, their heads were encased in black hoods and they were hanged. Kaburagi fell first at a.m. The others executed, in se- quence, were Warrant Officer Tsutomu Fujii, Sgt. Shoezeo Ma- sui, Sgt. Koichi Masuda, and Lance Corp Yosaburo Shirakawa. The execution party was head- ed by Lt. Clarence P. Pearsek of Meniminee, Mich., former per- sonal bodyguard to Gen. Eisen- hower.
