WASHINGTON, Oct. 9 The White House said today that President Truman is continuing his investigation of the meat shortage and is getting reports every day." Press -secretary Charles' G. Ross, asked by reporters whether the president' had completed his inquiry, said the answer "ob- viously is getting reports every day." Mr. Truman told his news con- ference on Sept. 26 that he had been investigating the situation for some time. He attributed the shortage then .to an "extraordi- narily large slaughter" in July and -August, when price controls were temporarily off, and pre- dicted a "greater quantity" of meat in the near future. Last. Thursday the president said he agreed with reconversion director John R. Steelmari's re- port that the meat shortage may grow worse this winter, and an- nounced he was having a sur- vey made. While foreseeing shortages ahead, he. said there will be no meat famine. No Announcement Yet Ross told reporters Mr. Truman will hold his weekly news con- ference at 4 p.m. (EST) tomor- row, but that he does not expect any announcement on meat at thatitime. Asked if F, H, LnGuardia, Di- rector. General of UNRRA, had urged the possible importation of Argentine beef for that agency in a White House call yesterday Ross said he had no information on that. As to whether anyone hiid sug- gested Argentine importations Ross replied: "Every possible suggestion has been made to him by someone.1 On another question as to whether a possible special session of congress to deal with the meat situation had been the subject of discussion at u cabinet meeting Ross said he did not know, bui that he doubted it. g Political Charges Flare The seething controversy ovei decontrol of meat erupted across the nation today, keyed to bittei political charges and counter charges. Only one thing is certain. There is little meat in pan, kettle or oven. And, in some sectors at least, it is getting scarcer. UNHRA Director General Fior- ellb H. LaGuardia said it is not going overseas in UNRRA car- tons. Asked by newsmen in Washington whether his organi- zation is shipping meat abroad, LaGuardia replied, "only some canned horsemeat." s General, Finding Many Normal Gone, Scarce or Occasional; Range from Meat to Soap, Sugar to Shortening By AxocUted- Preii _ A sharply etched picture of ed with rifles- arid ammunition belts, they looked, like warriors from a savage, land.

Up and down and across the country, major communities re- ported that many normal essen- tials had either gone from the shelves entirely, disappeared un- der the counter to become so- called "stoop items" for favored customers, or were available only to the lucky or constant shopper. Meat Scant in Cities The cross-nation check by the Associated Press brought in these among other returns: In 40 of the 45 cities meat was either was not available at all, or more often was in supply rang- ing from a small fraction of nor- mal to an "occasional" appear- ance. In all 45 cities soap in one or all of its forms was becoming almost a collectors item. In; 24 cities sugar was scarce or even in acute shortage, while in 18 others it was either plenti- ful or in fair to middling supply. Sixteen communities listed toilet tissue among top scarcities.

Yugoslavia abstained in the voting on the preamble, though the preamble text had been adop- ted unanimously in commission. Articles one and two were passed quickly and unanimously. Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov, who assailed the Italian treaty draft plan for the project- ed free state of Trieste as in "undemocratic" means of keep- ing that strategic Adriatic under British American con- trol in an address to the dele- gates this morning, presided as chairman. Molotov opened the balloting after calling on the spokesman of the Italian political commis- sion, A. D. Mclntosh of N e w Zealand, to present his report. The conference secretary-gen- eral, Jacques Fouques Duparc, explained the voting rules for the final decisions. Molotov then put the treaty preamble to the -conference.

In both cases, Russia, faithful to -her Big Four commitments, voted against (.he amendments, thus support- ing the four-power Speaking for the Soviet Union in a peace conference plenary session, Molotov declared that the statute adopted by the Parley's Italian political and territorial commission for governing the free state lodged "absolute power" in a foreign governor and left the city's population "disen- franchised" under .foreign troops. "This means Trieste is not an international free territory, but a semi-enemy supervised territory under control of the Anglo-Amer- ican Mololov declared. Demands Popular Vole Making his first pronouncement iince his return from Moscow, tfolotov demanded that the con- "ercnce transfer power in Trieste to a government elected by the jopular assembly similar to the jrownr government in Danzig, "It is not true to say there Is 10 similnrity between Trieste and he said. "The experience of Danzig should be utilized tn Trieste." Addressing himself to "western bloc" nations, Molotov criticized what he termed "attempts by the old democracies to isolate the young Slav democracies, especial- ly as these are trying to maintain their new national institutions and are not willing to do the bid- ding of some other powers." Molotov told the conference delegates that the question before then: was whether to establish the free "democratic principles" or abandon these principles.
