Lewis congratulated the miners for their understanding of the important issues involved in the present policy He said the wage negotiations of 1949 will be of crucial importance to our union and each

WASHINGTON March 24 Pres Harry S Truman Thursday swept his April calendar clear of all outoftown engagements and announced a daylighttodark work schedule apparently aimed mainly at getting his legislative program through congress With much of that program fac ing an uncertain fate on Capitol Hill the president disclosed at a news conference that he will be seeing many legislators in the days ahead He also will be busy he said clearing up business accumu lated during his Florida vacation Cancels N I Talks The president cancelled the last two of four speeches he had set for April Those called off Thurs day were to have been made April 10 and 23 at the United Nations cornerstone laying and at a dinner honoring Dr Chaim Weizmann president of Israel both in New York On hearing of the presidents de cision U N officials at Lake Success postponed the cornerstone laying indefinitely They said a new date would depend on when Mr Truman can take part Pressure of Duties Previous presidential speeces called off were those set for April 1 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology midcentury convoca tion and April 26 at Boston col lege Increasing pressure of offi cial duties was given as the reason for those cancellations Legislative duties were emphasized Alexander M Vasilevsky Leads armed forces of Russia Russ Replace Bnlganin as o Military Chief LONDON March 24 Of The Soviet union announced Thursday night that Marshal Alexander M Vasilevsky 44 has succeeded Mar shal Nikolai A Bulganin as min ister of the armed forces the highest military post in all of Russia This was the first big change in Soviet military leadership since Prime Minister Josef Stalin stepped down as minister of the armed forces in 1947 and appointed Bulganin to succeed him Stalin ran the armed forces during the war Top Level Changes The new shift followed top level changes in the Soviet political hierarchy in the last few weeks The most important was the re lease of V M Molotov as foreign minister to be succeeded by An drei Y Vinshinsky Molotov re mained as first deputy prime min at Stalins side Western observers in Moscow viewed these damages as meas ures to strengthen the highest ranks of Soviet policy makers Bulganin is also a vice chairman of the council ofministers of the Soviet deputy prime min ister A man known for his ability as a skilled negotiator and admin istrator Bulganin will presumably keep his deputy premiership Closely Associated Into the post of minister of the armed forces comes a relatively young man who has carved out a distinguished career in Soviet military annals Vasilevsky was deputy minister under Bulganin and therefore is closely associated with the workings of the office Vasilevsky had been relieved of nis duties as chief of staff of the general staff of the Soviet army ast November but retained his job as deputy minister of the armed forces The Russians said they wanted to relieve Vasilevsky of an excessive burden of work he said kills this legislation for this session of congress Went Even Further Rep Edith Nourse Rogers R Mass ranking GOP member of the veterans group went even further She said the vote blocked pensions for World War I vet erans for all time The final test came after the house tentatively had accepted an amendment substituting a pension system based on need and length of service The original plan would have given veterans of World Wars I and n an automatic pen sion of 590 a month at age 65 Some experts said veterans would have been eligible for pen sions ranging from to a month under the substitute pro posal House members were arguing that plan when Rep Olin E Teague D Tex a purple heart veteran of World War II offered a motion to kill the bill by strik ing its enacting clause Motion Approved The house approved the motion 171 to 168 on a nonrecord vote Teague then offered a second motion to send the bill back to the veterans committee so it could draft a less controversial measure That required a record vote and the house promptly reversed itself and voted 209 to 208 not to bury the bill in committee The WASHINGTON Match 24 tan The roll call by which the house shelved the veterans pen sion bill Thursday included for Bosone for against White paired against was so close however that acting Speaker John W McCormack or dered another roll call On crucial result was 208 to 207 the other way Two Pennsylvania Democrats Reps William T Granahan and William A Barrett supplied the pivotal tallies that sent the bill back to committee Turn to Other Business They voted against recommit tal on the first round Then be fore the first result was an nounced they made their way to the well of the house and changed their votes to yes There was dead silence as the vote was announced and the chamber immediately turned to other business Voting to send the bill back to committee were 151 Democrats and 57 Republicans Opposed were 100 Democrats 106 Republicans and Rep Vito Marcantonio ALP N Narrow though it was the vote was a victory for Pres Harry S Truman who had opposed the pen sion scheme as too costly Rankin redfaced and excited during most of the debate did not protest the decision He calmly folded his papers and walked away from the chair from which he di rected his futile fight He later repeated to a reporter his determination not to take up any other pension legislation this session FOOD PEAK CUT 8 Cost of Living Takes Biggest Monthly Dip in Nine Years WASHINGTON March 24 UP cost of living last month ook its biggest monthly tumble n almost nine years the Labor department
