May Postpone Spanish Worry U. N. Council May Adopt Compromise Suggestion For Investigation By MAX HARRELSON NEW YORK, April 19.—(ZP)— A compromise proposal by Australia gained support among delegates of the United Nations security council today as a possible solution to the controversial Spanish question. The proposal, submitted by Australian Delegate W. R. Hodgson shortly before the council ad- {'ourned yesterday for the Easter lolidays, calls for the appointment of a five-man sub-committee which would investigate the Spanish situation and report back by May 17. Most of the delegates were reluctant to commit themselves on the Australian suggestion immediately. but they generally expressed interest and it was conceded by some to have a good chance of being approved. Iranian Case Again Before the council resumes its discussions of the Spanish question, however, it will tackle again the Iranian case; which was interrupted Tuesday after Secretary Trygve Lie submitted a surprise opinion that there was some doubt as to whether the Iranian case could legally be kept on the agenda. This will be the first thing on the council’s calendar when it reconvenes at 3 p.m., eastern standard time, Tuesday. The way was opened for a new floor fight on the Iranian question when the council’s committee of experts on rules and procedure reported last night that it had split, 8 to 3, with the majority holding that the council has full authority to keep a case on the agenda as long as it thinks necessary. Back To Spain Next Week The council, which previously had been divided eight to three on the question of keeping jurisdiction of the case, was expected to accept the opinion of the majority and then vote to keep the question on the agenda until May 6, the date on which the Russians have promised to have all Red army troops out of Iran. The council was expected to come back to the Spanish case by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest. It was generally agreed that the Polish proposal for a worldwide rupture of diplomatic relations with the Franco regime had little chance of success, if brought to a vote now. -x-- leadier Hakes Play Out af Tables' Tulsa Instructor Has Youngsters Eager to Get At Multiplication ► An investigation of the county jail was triode and it was reported to be in first class condition in addition to being well-kept.

Headquarters said the bread for the prisoners, “in accordance with normal procedures,” had been secured from a local German bakery by contract. Counter-intelligence agents of the U. S. army went to work immediately to determine whether any of the bread had fallen into the hands of German civilians. Headquarters said the counterintelligence corps, together with agents of the U. S. army theater provost marshal, had started an investigation in an attempt to find out how the poison got into the bread. Phillips Releases S.

More Political Row Shapes Up in Japan Decision to Send Food to Japan Brings Another Protest From British-Russian Council Members on MacArthur Policy WASHINGTON, April 19.— (AP)—A first-class political row appears today to be shaping up between Gen. Douglas MacArthur^ command and the two inter-Allied agencies ; dealing with Japanese policy and administration. In Washington, a committee of the Far Eastern commis- j sion, 11-nation policy-making agency, scheduled a meeting ; to discuss the recent United States decision to send more j than half a million tons of food to Japan during the first six I months of this year. ------4    And in Tokyo, the four-nation * # • I tis    wa    advisory council, whose Russian Crisis Worse Than Expected, Truman Says of Food Need Administration Hopeful For OPA in Senate But Leaders Realise Housa Must Be Considered In Compromise Measure WASHINGTON, April 19 —(A”) — Administration chiefs expressed confidence today that the senate will treat OPA far more gently than the house did, but trouble was stacking up for them just the same. Their guarded optimism was tempered by th*' fact that even if the senate rolls up a thumping minority for continued price control without major changes, its decision will have to b*? compromised with the contrary action of the house on many key provisions. Porter Assails House Bill OPA Chief Paul Porter claims the bill the house passed yester-day will require the elimination immediately after July I of price ceilings on at least 50 per cent of all commodities w’hich make up the cost of living. On this list the price chief placed such foods as meat, milk and all other dairy products except butter. High on it, too, were coal, shoes, rayon and woolen textiles and many clothing items made from these fabrics. Porter, rn a statement last night, said also that the house bill would “blow sky-high” the ceilings on automobiles, radios, refrigerators and most household appliances. Optimism Is Cautious Keynote of the administration’s cautious optimism in the midst of these inflation predictions was sounded by Chairman Wagner (DNY) of the senate banking committee. “I am sure.” Wagner told reporters, "that my committee will come out with a very sensible bill. I think the senate will be reflective, thoughtful of the consequences.” Wagner’s committee is considering a bill which as it stands would extend price controls a year beyond June 30 without change. This contrasts with the house action in voting a nine months extension minus food subsidies and with sections requiring ceiling prices that will guarantee "reasonable profit” to all manufacturers and distributors on every item handled.
