He okayed Uio new proposed by the Wage Stabiliza- tion Board, until March 1, 1952. Jn the meantime, the board will approve wage increases granted by employers lo offset the rise in living costs, Roughly, they have risen 11 per cent since January, 1950 and aljout two per cent since Iho wage-price freeze of last Jan, 25. The new policy supplements but does not change a scpaiate regula- tion under which employers may grant increases of 10 per cent over January, levels without com- ing to the board for nppioval, Board Applies New 1'ollcy The board promptly applied the now policy to a series northern cotton-rayon textile mill cases, It granted a six and one-half per cent boost, amounting to eight and one- lialf cents an hour to CIO- toxtilo workers, effective last March. That evened up their raises with those oC other New England mill workers who have contracts with cost-of-llving "es- calator" provisions, These allow wage increases when the coat of living goes decreases If and when the living cost declines, The board also okayed ti future es- calator clause for the DO.OOO. The board declined to approve the full seven and one-half per cent Increase negotiated bv the ClO-toxtllo workers and the northern manufacturers, snylng that would exceed the cost of liv- ing formula, The arrangement to give sever- ance pay to retiring workers, also agieed upon by the employers, was held In abeyance while the board studies all types of pension and re- tirement plans Jn the light of Uie stabilization program.

The board would ap- prove that arrangement.

Abdullah, one of the most power- ful figures in the Middle East, was slain in the Jordan-held old city of Jerusalem as ho was going to the tomb of his father In the Mosque of Omar. I-Ils assassin, a 21-year- old Moslem tailor was said to be a follower ot the grand mufti, killed on the spot by Abdul- lah's bodyguard The eight clolondants present for the tilal were brought in unclot heavy guard, Two rieiul "Nol Guilty" Father Ibrahim Ayyad, Roman Catholic secretary of the Latin patnaichate in Jerusalem, and Dr. Mousa Abdullah E. Hussoim, one of the mufti's cousins, weie the first two defendants to appear bo- lero tho thice-man tilbunal. They both pleaded "Not guilty." The prosecutor general told tlin couit Father Ayyad had said dur- ing his Investigation that "If King Abdullah was not assassinated, I would have murdered him mvsclf." Father Ayyad flatly denied this as "absolutely untrue." The prosecutor said Abdullah El Tell, one of the two being tried in absentia, was the kirigpm of the conspiracy. He said Uie other absent one, Mousa Ahmed ,11 Ayyoubi, was the liaison between ISl 'Tell and Mousa Hussoini. The assassination plot, said the prosecutor, was hatched in El Toll's Cairo home.

Persons in different parts oC this city and -in Middletown heaul the rumble and shock, A trooper Irom the Portsmouth bill- racks he-aid "the noise" and at- tributed it to thunder. In reply to a telephone call to Weston, Mass., Seismological Laboratories an attendant said he could see no signs of the shock iccordecl on the instruments there. The priest in charge, however, was absent, The city was visitec) with a similar .shock a few weeks ago, when a sharp rumbling sent many families to their cellais to check on their furnaces. FHday night's shock also seemed to come Irom the base- ment and again people checked their cellais. Unlike the several- second rumbling of tho earlier caithqualcc, this one rumbled slightly and ended In a distinct shock, like a blow against the house. i One Middletown official's tamily hoaid the shock, describing1 it as "a noise and a little shaking" of the house. In this city the shock was felt In several quartets of the city.

(AP Wirephoto) TRUMAN FORCES SEEK TO RESTORE PART OFA1D BILL Look To Senate To Give Back Billion Slashed1 In Economic Help Fund WASHINGTON, Aug. 18 UP) Administration leaders looited to the Senate today to restore at least part of a cut the House made in President Tru- man's foreign aid bill, They were particularly hopeful of reeaptmlng an unexpected last minute slice of In economic aid lor wesletr. iSuropc. That cut was pushed through by a coalition of Republicans and Southern Democrats shortly be- toie the bill passei; lust night by a vote of 260 to 101. The House a.'uiirs com- mittee already had looped off Hinds for European economic help. The additional cut was Imposed by M9 Republicans and ;1Y ciats over the opposition ol! 102 Democrats, 14 Republicans and one independent, It was sponsored by Rep, Recce former chalnnan of the Republican notional committee. The House Jcl't the European economic allotment at 000 instead of the requested by President Truman. Democrats Ciiuglit off There were no House-voted re- ductions In other 1'unds recom- mended by the foreign affairs committee, This group hud trimmed a total of ,from Air.

The cut was not .so deep as many Republicans had hoped lor. Their goal was an overall reduction, including the commit- tee cuts, of from to Democrats turned back repeated attempts to cut military-aid allot- ments and to make other changes In the bill, But Recce's last-minute move caught them flat-footed. It came in the form of a technical motion to recommit the entire bill, with instructions to the foreign af- fairs committee to report it back Immediately with the cut. GOP Argues For AUI Cut Republicans argued that, the economic aid funds could be cut because European nations, already given billions of American aid, are in a position to carry more, of the load themselves. Democrats countered with the ulBim that European economic re- covery has progressed to the point the extra money requested by the President would put them on a sound footing and help them pro- duce most of their own military supplies. House Speaker Sam Rayburn (D-Tex.) called it a bad risk to save several hundred million dol- lars at a possible cost of later should a slow down in European recovery tempt Russia to start an all-out war. The bill as it cleared the House to upproprla lions allotments: Europe: in mill lary aid and In economic aid, a cut of in military and in economic aid, Other Near East and Africa: 000 in military aid, no reduction, and in economic aid, a boost of for rehab- ilitation of Jewish refugees.
