French Vole New Conslilulion With Legislature on Top By ROBERT C. .WILSON PARIS, Oct. consti- tution for France's fourth repub- lic, providing for a powerful ICK- islaluro overshadowing the pres- ident, bore the stamp of public approval today, given in tho face Gen. Charles De Gaulle's op- position. The people of- continental Franco ficcopted.thejiow .consti- lution yesterday by a, margin of some a per- centage of 53.6 in favor to opposed. Voting was light, with per cent of the registered voters staying away from the polls. Gen, Do Gmillo, wartime lead- er oil the fighting- French, hud contended that the chnrter was inadequate because under It the executive would be too weak. He warned that t h e constitution would ondaijfier France's future and urged its rejection. But the result of the referen- dum, fur from being regarded as' a defeat .for the general, was taken rnlher as strong testimony' to his continuing prestige. Al- most single hnndodly ho, nearly defeated tho constitution-despite Iho fact thatsit 'was backed by IfYunctj's throe .major parties. Official interior ministry' re- turns for continental France showed votes for the constitution to against it. Unofficial returns from three .North African dupartmonla show- ed that lhat part of the cmpiue hud rejected the constitution, 58 to the unofficial totnls .for the 03 depart- ments of Franco nnd North Africa "Yes" and "no." Still missing were reports from Corsica, Martlncjuo, Madagascar, Ihe South Pacific, Indo-China and other oversea territories, but they could not change, the overall re- sult. The constitution will not'take effect until, early December, when parliament is scheduled to bo seated. Ono chamber, the National As- sombly.oi: Deputies', will be elect- ed Nov. 10. Tho second, tho Coun- cil oil the Republic, is to.bo chosen by a complicated doctoral college system.

Nation Wails For Truman Word on Meal Decision Due for An- nouncement Tonight On Stabilization, Meat Prob- lem By MARVIN L. WASHINGTON, Oct.- 14, Housewives Scurrying for meat and politicians lor votes cocked un our to the White House for President Truman's decision to- night on what to do about get- ting steaks nnd roasts baek. Hours before the chief execu- tive's .all-network1 broadcast sel for -10 p. m., pastern standard time, the republican pnrty term- ed the scheduled address "politi- cal" and demanded radio time to reply. Issue Is' Clear While there was no clear-cut indication what Mr. Truman plnns to say in his 15-minuto discussion, of stabilization and the meat problem, the issue be- fore him boiled down to Whether to scrap ment con- trols outright, as many republi- cans and some democratic lead- ertr.havo demanded, or keep them unchanged, Or, whether to compromise on some relaxation of controls 'in- volving perhaps, higher ceilings, a bonus plan to induce market- ing .of livestock, and possibly importation of meat. Mr. Truman is on' 'record as firmly opposed to removal of OPA One indication that he may have changed his mind came from a high official who .is fami- liar with the problem. He hint- ed to a reporter that top aides helping prepare Mr. Truman's .speech met at the White House last night and that decontrol of meat is In the picture. Wage Controls, Too There has been speculation, moreover, that Mr.' Truman might dual with wage 'controls, too, and possibly scrap that pro- gram. On the other among those playing an active part in drafting the president's state- are OPA Administrator Paul Porter and Reconversion Director John R. Steelman. Porter has openly opposed re- moval of meat controls. Steel- mnn, on the subject 'of controls generally, recently said that to 'let prices go" would .be the "worst possible" course. The GOP contention that Mr. Truuman's address "will be poli ticnl" came from Carroll Recce chairman of the republican na tionnl. committee. Politics, Cries "Just three weeks before i caicial congressional election; Recce said in u statement, "Mr Truman has chosen to tie up most of the nation's radio facili ties with an explanation of hi administration's so-called stnbili zntlon program, with pat-licula reference to, the stabilized short age of meat. Whatever; may be the form of his explanation, it substance und its obvious politt cal purpose will'be political. "If Mr. Truman has in mine some action to solve the mea it is to be hopcc that he can take that ac lion at his desk in. the White House, where it could have been taken many weeks 'ago. xxxx" Meanwhile, Rep! Jenkins o Ohio, chairman of the rcpubli can. congressional food study committee, called for "immediate and permanent elimination of al OPA controls and price regula- tions over the livestock and meat industry."

By LARRY HAUCK LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Oet. 14 problem "of how lo prevent clandestine operations in atomjc energy occupied Ihe atten- tion of.the political committee of the United Nations Atomic Ener- gy commission today as delegates were called into session lo begin a delailed study of safeguards necessary' to restrict use of atomic power to peaceful purposes. The agenda for the p.m. (EST) meeting contained a Canadian resolution, previously unanimously adopted, providing for a thorough examination of three possible kinds of Clandestine 'operations, diversion of materials and seizure of mater- ials or facilities. The Canadian plan recommend- ed' a complete checkup at every stage of .production from the mines up. The United Stales delegation was expected to submit another one amplify- ing the question of controls mid stressing the necessity for a strict system. Meanwhile, the' Security Coun- cil will go buck into public ses- sion tomorrow for the first time, in weeks to debate eligi- bility for the international" court of justice. _ Arguments hinge around Rus- sian-Polish opposition to allowing Franco Spain, which is barred from U. N. .membership, from having -access to the agency's, court. The position of the 'United States and generally of the other delegates was that tho question is juridical and not political and that all countries should have rights of entry'to a court of jus- tice.

He WanfedlcT Sleep Something OH Molotov Protests Treaties Unsatisfactory To Russia, Charges Domination by U. S. By MEL MOST PARIS, Oct. Pm-is Peace Conference, ac- cused by Russia of failure in many respects, wound up work tonight on fivb peace treaties, and the Fore'i gn Ministers Council prepared to take up in New York the completion of these pacts and a start on the new treaty with Germany her- self. In the last hours of the peace conference Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov protested that many of its acts had been unsatisfactory and would have to be gone over by the foreign ministers. One of the conference's last actions was to vote down an American appeal to reduce Finland's repara- tions by one-third. Russia protested that and said the United States had dominated the 11-week, conference. Molotov remarked that portions of the draft treaties with Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, and Finland pleased Russia and indicated that many oT the issues would be thrown into the Foreign Ministers Council where decisions must bo unanimous. An American spokesman said the foreign ministers would meet Nov. -1 in 'New York to complete work on the treaties with Italy, Romanin, Hungary. Bulgaria and Finland and began work on the pud which will decide (.ho fu- ture of Germany. The spoltos- mnn indicated the treaty with Germany would not be complet- ed in Now York, since both Molo- tov and French President Geor- ges Bidaull preferred that it be designed in Europe, Molotov will leave for N e w York tomorrow nnd Secretary of State Byrnes will follow Wed- nesday to attend the meeting of the United Nations assembly convening Oi-l.
