Tobey Soys They Lock Authority To Divide Committee Assignments Now By JACK BELL .WASHINGTON, Dec. 30. Senate Republicans went ahead with plans for election of offi- cers today despite a challenge from Senator Tobey (R-NH) of their authority to act until'con- gress actually meets. Informed by reporters of Tob'ey's stand, Senator Taft (R- of the steering committee, replied: "I have no doubt-of the right of the elected Republicans to cau- cus in advance of taking their oaths and decide what they are going to do." said, however, that com- mittee assignments could not be settled until later. Tobey had objected particularly to agreeing on them at an afternoon meet- ing. Tobey Argues Rules Tobey argued that the rules of the Republican conference (orga- nization of senate GOP.members) provide for the electfon of con- ference chairman and' appoint- ment of a new steering commit- tee and committee on committees only after the new session of con- gress has convened. The 80th session starts Friday noon. In advance of the meeting Tobey told reporters that a rule adojpted by the Republican con- ference (the.organization of sen- ate GOP njembers) on Dec. 15, 1944, forbi'as -making or approv- ing any committee assignments until after congress actually 'con- venes. He took notice of statements 'by members of the outgoing Repub- lican committee on committees that they .were merely making recommendations to the full group of 51 Republican senators and senators' elect. Tobey called this committee a "rump" group, but declared: "Any chili of adolescence who doesn't know that those recom- mendations will gather the forces of a snowball is just kidding him- self." Sharp Bow Threatens Tobey's attitude and a bid by Senator Reed of Kansas for' the commerce committee chairman- assigned by the leaders to Senator White of the prospect of a sharp row in the GOP meeting. The gathering of all GOP sen- ators :was called to-agree on or- ganization of the senate branch of .the new congress and parcel out the choice leadership posts. Tobey made it clean, he would challenge at the meeting the right of what he called a "rump" com- mittee on .committees to make any 'committee assignments.

For Ban Of Veto By FBANCIS W. CARPENTER LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Dec. (AP) Russia charged-bluntly today that atomic energy is still being usec 'exclusively for production of aggressive arms and called for urgent action to outlaw atomic weapons.

Knufson Insistent On 20 Per Cent Cut For Income Taxes By FRANCIS M. LE MAY WASHINGTON, Dec. 30, Despite protests from both dem- ocrats and fellow republicans, Rep. Knutson (Minn) declared he has retreated "not in his drive to cut in- ed today one indi" dividual income taxes by 20 per- cent "across .the board." Returning to Washington to as- sume the chairmanship of the potent house ways and means committee, Knutson said he will call the committee together very shortly to tackle the tax-slashing job. committees could not be appoint-, ed until after the next session of" congress actually convenes on Friday. "We have been fighting for some time-to lick centralization of he said; "Thirteen mil- lion men went to fight in a. war against that principle." Tobey declined to commit him- self on his own committee pref- erences. The present committee on committees headed by Sena- tor White has put him down as chairman of the banking and currency committee. The New Hampshire senator also voiced a demand -that Sen- ator-Elect Lodge (R-Mass) be re- stored .the same committee sen- iority he would have had if he had not resigned his senate scat to enlist in the army. He said congress had insisted that private employers preserve veterans' seniority rights and that he saw no reason why congress should not follow the same pattern.' is balanced and sizeable debt pay- ments are made. "This tax reduction should be done and can be the Min- nesotan told reporters. "We're living in an unusual age if peo- ple _don't want their taxes cut." Moreover, Knutson outlined two other major considerations for committee attention: O. A searching investigation of administration foreign trade and tariff policies by the hew, repub- lican dominated congress. 2. Liberalization of the social security laws. Knutson said some workers now are denied. coverage, including self- employed, farmers. domestic workers and professional people. "We may find that the solu- tion is a program for voluntary he added. Since Knutson and .the house republican steering committee announced their tax-cutting pro- gram shortly after the republi- can election victory, opposition has developed on both sides of the political fence. Senator Ball, also a Minnesota republican, spoke out against a sharp slash, saying "the soundest kind of economics would dictate keeping high taxes in boom times, reducing them in bad times. Senator Byrd of Virginia and Rep. Do'ughton of North Caro- lina, retiring chairman of the ways and means group, both democrats, said they would sup- port no tax cut until the budget Russia, in effect, reinstated its plan fpr controlling atomic ener- gy. This asked the nations to out- law atomic weapons by treaty and destroy existing stocks o: bombs. Baruch Urges U. S.
