GREEN WASHINGTON, June than 000 worth of non-home building has been okayed since the government's construction controls went into effect in March. A civilian production administration report disclosed this today. It showed that in the first 11 weeks of the order de- signed to curb such building in order to make more materials available for new homes there were approvals for store, factory, office and other non-housing construction and rejections. However, CPA Administrator John D. Small said that ratio has been reversed this month. A cut- wf ifl Wfil down in non-rosidervtial approvals J was ordered May 29 when it de- veloped that materials were be- ing used up faster than they were being produced. The cutdown resulted too, other officials have said, from com- plaints by Housing Expediter Wilson W.

Dodds said Tuesday morning that the loads are getting heavier as the clean- up drive in Ada progresses in the northeast section of Ada. Trucks will be in the southeast .district Wednesday. The mayor is reminding the public that the spraying will be started Thursday as scheduled. With two trucks operating at the same time, two sections of town will be sprayed at the same time. The-northwest district and colored town will be first on the agenda. The southwest and northeast districts will be sprayed second and the southeast district will be sprayed last. Garbage cans should be empty and clean Thursday morning so that the most benefit possible can be derived from the DDT spray. The mayor has suggested that garbage cans be left for spray- ing at the place where they are usually picked up by garbage col- lectors. In addition to garbage cans, cow pens, horse lots open gar- bage and other places will be sprayed under 600 pounds pres- sure. Good machinery operated by experienced men will be used to spray the various places.

Word had just been received from the--Soviet ministry of fore- i ign affairs, he said, contending that the American argument i furnished no foundation for re-! scinding the Soviet action against the American newsman. The Kremlin takes this view, Acheson said, despite the fact that the American government considers suppression of news freedom in Romania a violation of the Potsdam agreement made a year ago by Premier Stalin, President Truman and Prime Minister Attlee. 1 Acheson said the Christian Science Monitor has advised the state department that Markham left Romania June 22-and is now in Athens.

Leading Lawmakers Want To See Tested Internation- al Controls Set Up By .TACK BELL WASHINGTON, June threat of a United Nations deadlock over atomic energy con- trol followed by a global atomic arms race stirred congress today as the result of Russia's blunt "do-ii-our-way" approach to the problem. Leading lawmakers declared emphatically that this country is not going to surrender its a-bomb secrets until tested international controls are set which the Soviet plan does not appear to guarantee. A charge by the Communist Pravda that the American plan for international control of the weapon "reflects evident striving for world ruje'1 provoked sharp counter criticisiv from members of the senate's special atomic committee." "Ridiculous" Calling the charge Senator Russell a com- mittee member, told a reporter he thinks "the Russians should stop judging all other nation's motives by their own selfish atti- tudes." "Nobody in the world has ever offered to give away so much for so the Georgia senator de- clared. "The Baruch plan is a generous proposal in we offer to give away a development bought with our genius and our money. All we ask in return is protection for the world and our- selves against its use for destruct- ive purposes. "I am bitterly opposed to re- vealing one iota of information until we have some irrevocable plan of inspection and I think the majority of congress is in the same frame of mind. There can be no veto in the operation of such international control. The Georgia senator said he fears Russian insistence on the veto, renewed in the Pravda out- burst, may deadlock U.

Many Powers May Be Taken From Agency House, Senate Than Presi- dent Truman Must Sign Bill If Price Control Stayi By FRANCIS J. KELLY WASHINGTON. June 25. An OPA bill far short of what the administration asked but a Rood deal less stringent than it expected went to tlw house to- day from a night shift conference Left intact were price over meat, butter, cigarettes and gasoline, but the one-year exten- sion of the war-born agency yanked away many of OPA's powers over the national econo- my. The house, then the senate, and finally President Truman must approve the measure if it is to keep all price ceilings from ox- pir'nif next Sunday midnight. Although a last minute decis- ion knocked out sections which, would have ended controls over livestock, poultry, dairy products, tobacco and petroleum at the end of this month, many of the bill's provisions were written specifi- cally to force a raise in prices. Bowles FighU Back Advocjiles contended that iiuch a course would spur production, and put the nation on the high- way to prosperity. But Stabili- zation Director Chester damned them in advance as "booby trop" breeders of infla- tion. Among them: 1. An end to OPA's controver- sial program calling for spccifid quantities of lower-cost clolh- injr. 2. A halt to so-called cost-ab- sorption on such things as refrigerators and radios. 3. A requirement that average unit cost increases since 1041 must be reflected in all ceilings. Last night's session was forced by widely varying extension bills passed separately by the house and senate. The conferees representing both behind locked doors at 8 o'clock last night in the capitol office bf Senator Barkley the ma- jority leader. Seven Sign Three and one-half hours lat- er Barkley beckoned 20 wailing reporters into the marble-decor- ated room and announced the I agreement. A majority of the seven dele- gates from each house signed the committee's recommendations, he reported. Each house has its choice of voting the conference's recom- mendations up or down, or send- ing the bill back to the joint com- mittee with instructions for spe- cific changes. Bark ley carefully had avoided a roll call vote in the senate on the meat-poultry dairy decon- trol amendment, which was ap- proved by a narrow magin in the banking committee. The senate lost out in con- ference on all specific decontrols, however, it prevailed on the full year's extension, for the house had voted only nine months be- yond June 30. Senate theories came out on top again in creation of a three- member decontrol board, to be appointed by the president and confirmed by the senate. Inde- pendent of OPA, the bi-partisan, board could overrule the price administrator or the secretary of agriculture if either, without good reason, rejected an indus- try's request to lift ceilings.
