Thirty-Fourth NEWS P P R ffp A CONSTR U T 1 V E Drive With CARE Don't Take CHANCES Wisconsin Rapids, Friday, April 23, 1948 Showdown Coming on FBI Report Washington (IP) President Truman's try-a n d-get-it challenge ran into a congressional threat today to "get tough" over demands for an FBI loyalty report on Dr. Edward U. Condon. Rep. J. Parnell Thomas (R.-N. J.) said there will be a showdown if the administration fails to produce the document within 48 hours. The chairman of the un- American activities committee said that should be a reasonable time for an answer to the house resolution directing the secretary of commerce to turn over the letter. Handled Secrets Condon is director of the federal bureau of standards, which handles research on some of the govern- ment's top military secrets. "We are going to be tough in this Thomas told reporters. "There is going to be a showdown." But when and how was something else again. The house adopted the resolution yesterday, 300 to 29. At his news conference later, Tru- man gave no sign that he would let the FBI letter go to congress. Truman has issued a definite or- der to all agencies to refuse to give up any loyalty records of federal workers. He has said they must be kept confidential "in the interest of our national security and welfare." Thomas' committee wants the FBI letter for hearings it plans in the Condon case next month. One of its subcommittees has charged, and Condon has denied, that he is one of the weakest links in atomic security dnd has associated with suspected Russian spies. The subcommittee quoted what it said was a -part of the letter to back up its charges. Thomas said there is precedent for hauling the secretary of com- merce into the house ,demanding the letter, and "putting him in the cus- tody of the sergeant-at-arms if he fails to produce it." No Decision Yet But he said there has been no decision to take such an "extreme" step. Should the house try that maneu- ver, committee officials said the sec- retary could ask for a court order freeing him from custody. The whole affair then could wind up with a supreme court ruling on just how much power the house has to force the executive branch of the government to give up information it considers secret. Charles Sawyer, commerce secre- tary-designate, declined comment on the Condon case when he arrived here last night from his Cincinnati home. Government Attempts To End Packer Strike Chicago The government has made a new attempt to end the 39-day-old nationwide meat strike. Representatives of the striking CIO Packing House Workers and the four major packers have been invited to Washington next week for fresh wage negotiations. The union has accepted the bid of Cyrus S. Ching, director of the federal mediation and conciliation service, to meet with the packers. The first session was planned with Armour and company on Monday. About members of the un- ion struck on March 16 in support Find Woman's Body 4 Days After Death Mrs. Allen Gilson, 59, 1341 i Woodbine street, was found dead at her home Thursday afternoon by her son-in-law, Leo Beimler, who had come to check the water sup- ply at the house. Dr. H. G. Po- raainville, Wood county coroner, said that death was due to a heart ailment and that Mrs. Gilson ap- parently had been dead since Sun- day. She was last seen Sunday evening and apparently died during the night. Funeral services will be conduct- ed by the Rev. H. T. Kant at Saturday afternoon at the Morav- ian church. Burial is to take place in Forest Hill cemetery. Mrs. Gilson, whose maiden name was Ida Johnson, was born at Na- ponville, Wood county, on April 3, 1889, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sven Johnson, and had resided in this vicinity all her life. She mar- ried Allen Gilson in Wisconsin Rap- ids on July 3, 1905. Mr. Gilson died December 7, 1945 and one son also preceded the mother in death. Surviving are two sons, Earl, Port Edwards, and Norbert, Wis- consin Rapids; two daughters, Mrs. Mahlon Bates and Mrs. Leo Beimler, both of Wisconsin Rap- ids; four brothers, John S., Her- man, Edward and Charles Johnson, all of Wisconsin Rapids; two sis- ters, Mrs. Frank Canedy, Chicago, and Mrs. Scott Snyder, Glidden, and 13 grandchildren. The body will be at the Baker Funeral home until noon Saturday and at the church from 1 p. m. un- til time of services. Firms Reveal Price Slashes Pittsburgh Price slashes by the Giant TJ.S. Steel corporation followed by similar action by West-, inghouse Electric corporation, today focused new attention on attempts to lasso cost of living advances. "Big Steel" yesterday disclosed a wide variety of its barbed wire to steel used in will be cut an annual total of May 1. At the same time the corporation turned down de- mands of the CIO-United Steel- workers for an unspecified pay boost. Westinghouse said its customers will save about a year from reductions it is putting into: effect at once. The decreases will average 5 per cent on electrical products used in connection with electric power distribution. Vice President T. I. Phillips said price decreases were made possible "through increased efficiency and improvements i n manufacturing methods." Products affected include large circuit breakers, outdoor substations, switchgear, lightning arresters and feeder voltage regulators. Price cuts announced by U.S. Steel corporation, drew varying reaction.! President Philip Murray of both the' CIO and the Steelworkers termed them "picayune." Ernest T. Weir, chairman of the National Steel corp- oration said he hoped other branches of the steel industry would find it possible to follow suit. Cancel Night Train Runs Because of Reds Rangoon, Burma Night train travel was cancelled through- out Burma today because Commun- ist activities have made it perilous. The general manager of the Bur- ma railways said recent train- wrecking attempts by insurgents forced the cancellation. Schedules will be revised for trains to make dusk-to-dawn layovers at large railway stations. HI NABOR A congressman says giving a j feller a square 1 meal don't mate a ensipy out of him.

Release Study On Universal Service Plan Washington A "univers- al semce" program to make sure every American does "his proper part" if war comes again was com- mended to congress today for study. The senate war investigating com- mittee set forth the proposal in a report on industrial mobilization. It says: "The American people must real- ize that in another war this na- tion may at once become not only an arsenal but also a battlefield." The report also says that "in this era of total war" new methods must be developed "to take unfair prof- its out of war and preparation for war." The study came to congress' door- step in the midst of bustling prepar- ations for military defense. But there appeared to be little chance for action this session on the "uni- versal service" legislation suggested by the committee. The industrial mobilization docu- ment ,made available to a reporter in advance of its general release, says: "The essence of totalitarianism is universal service imposed by an au- thoritarian regime. The salvation of democratic institutions may be found only in universal service imposed by the good sense of millions of free- dom-loving citizens. "Universal service envisions the elimination of unfair profits and may measurably avoid the disrup- tions of our economic system by cre- ation of an enormous debt." The report outlines no specific program. It simply says "considera- tion may well be given" to such a program. of demands for wage hikes of 29 cents. The packers had offered 9 cents. Swift and company said it would attend the Washington meeting scheduled with union representa- tives next Wednesday. Armour and the other major packers, Cudahy and Wilson and company, did not comment immediately on the invi- tation. Ching proposed the union meet with Cudahy on Tuesday and with Wilson next Friday. As the government moved to set- tle the wage dispute, a group of farm leaders appealed to President Truman "to utilize every device available under present law" to end the walkout. The farm leaders included Allan B. Kline, president of the Ameri- can Farm Bureau federation, and the president.; of six midwest state farm bureaus. They told Truman that farmers are paying a "heavy penalty" for failure of settlement efforts and that any further delays would make the fanners' position "intolerable." Earlier yesterday the union ac- cepted a proposal by E. Howard Hill, president of the Iowa Farm Bureau, to arbitrate its strike against the major packers. Hoist Storm Signals For Housing Bill Washington House mem- bers hoisted storm signals for a senate-approved program aimed at building homes in the next 10 years. As in the senate, which passed the multi-billion dollar Taft-Ellen- der-Wagner bill yesterday, the house controvei'sy centers around the measure's public hous- ing section. The house banking committee pigeonholed a similar senate bill two years ago. Then, as now, many opponents called the public housing section "socialized housing." Banking Chairman Wolcott (R- Mich.) set "fcill hearings" for May 3 and told a reporter "some sort of housing bill" will pass, Few On Hand After a week of bitter wrangling, the senate passed the controversial bill yesterday by voice vote. Only about a dozen senators were present for the final showdown. Here is what the senate would provide: 1. A public housing program, with government-owned and operated structures for low in- come families unable to afford houses built by private industry. i-ederal subsidies would amount to annually by the fifth vcar and would continue at this rate for the next 40 years. Slum Clearance 2. Clearance of city slums with in subsidies 45- year loans totaling 3. A farm housing program, with farmers eligible for loans or subsidies if they arc with- out "sufficient resources to prj.'ide the necessary housing." 4. Extension of federal home loan insurance, with the federal housing administration authorized to insure an additional in mortgages on new construction. Home loan terms generally would be liberalized. 5. To spur construction of rental housing, there is a program of 90 per cent loans over 40 years at 4 per cent interest. Jews Make Attacks on 3 Villages By The Associated Press Palestine Jews attacked three Arab villages between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv today while Haganah consolidated the control it wrestled in a swift attack on the port city of Haifa. The attacks apparently were aimed at protecting the Jewish food lifeline between coastal Tel Aviv and the Jewish community of Jerusalem. Haifa officials said 105 Arabs were killed yesterday in the Jew- ish militia's attack, which struck after British forces withdrew from all but the port area. Other re- ports said four Haganah men were cilled. Arabs last night rejected British surrender terms as too larsh. Passover Week A world Jewry prepared to ush- er in the Passover week tonight, the United Nations political com- mittee again took up the, Palestine question. The United States is re- ported to have abandoned plans to call for a special international po- ke force for Palestine. However, ;he Americans are believed ready ;o insist upon creation of a truce commission to carry out the se- curity council's cease fire order of week ago. King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan urged Arab nations yesterday to send their armies into Palestine to battle the Jews as soon as the British give up their League of Nations mandate May 15. The monarch told newsmen in Amman he wants all Arab nations "to join my army in a movement to Pales- tine to retain the Arab character of that country." Some of Abdullah's British-trained Arab Legion already are, in Palestine.

The resolution urged each western hemisphere nation to adopt measures to combat commun- ism and othesr forms of totalitar- ianism. In Moscow, newspapers publish- ed dispatches from abroad accus- ing the United States and British of trying to enlist Germans for military purposes and using former German army generals as consul- tants. Red Star, the Soviet army newspaper, said "imperialist pow- ers" are pouring spies into Russia. Postpones Sentenci Lewis for Civil Conte Red Tactics May Change In Europe Washington European Communists may be compelled to switch tactics as a result of their, defeat in Italy.

Another possibility and this one is heavily but not entirely dis- counted by authorities that the Soviets may take the initiative in seeking a meeting between Presi- dent Truman and Premier Stalin.

But the president said again that he has no intention of leaving the country at the present time. Behind Iron Curtain Stalin was never willing to leave areas under Red army control for his wartime Big Three conferences, and there is no responsible belief here that he would now do so. However, talk that he might pro- pose a meeting arises from the be- lief of diplomatic experts that such a move might tend to throw off bal- ance the American anti-Communist program throughout the world.

There is no leeral way, says Pre- cious, to compel the grandmother to permit the family to continue occu- pying her home although her son is the father of the children and is now serving a term in prison for failure to support his wife and fam- ily. So, paid Precious, unless a house or apartment can be found for the agreement covering the establish- ment of the fellowship. The project has been assigned to the university's department of eco- nomic entomology, and Dr. R. D. Shenefelt has been designated to give it his personal supervision. In addition to studying insect control in stored pulpwood, the problem of prevention of damage to adjacent timber from beetles emerging from piles of stored pulp "ood will also be explored. Important to Industry Because of circum- stances in the pulpwood picture of Wisconsin's paper mills, and bo- cause conditions sometimes reqcue the storage of pulpwood for vaiy- ing length of time, tbe problem of insect control is of vital ecun 311 ic importance to the state's second laipest industry. With mills today going further afield than ever before to guar- antee an adequate supply of pulp- wood, -every possible means of pro- tecting the states' standing timber supply from insect attack and in- festation must be exercised, and it was with this thought in mind that the directois of Nepco Foundation established the fellowship and re- quested publication of the findings for the benefit of the entire indus- try, according to a statement by- John E. Alexander, president of the foundation and president and gen- eral manager of Nekoofca-Edwards Paper company. The Nepco Foundation was es- tablished last year as a non-profit corporation for the promotion of religious, charitable, scientific or educational activities for the bene- fit of inhabitants of Wisconsin lie- ginning with an initial conti ibution whence his remains were returned to this country.
