Sends ll To Conference
There New Effort to Be Mode to Write Compromise Trumon Will Accept
WASHINGTON, July 16 (A3)
By a vote* of 211 to 64. the house today rejected the senate OPA bill and .sent it to a house* senate conference committee for a new effort to write a compromise price control measure that President Truman will sign.
The vote was a victory for the president in this round of the weeks-long struggle over OPA, but administration leaders conceded that nobody could guess what OPA will look like, if indeed it survives at all, when it finally runs the gaunt of the legislative processes.
Speaker Rayburn (D-Tex), immediately after the house voted appointed these house members to deal with the senate in the effort to compromise the troublesome OPA issue.
Chairman Spence (D-Kv), of the banking committee, and Reps Brown (D-Ga), Patman (D-Tex) Barry (DNY). Wolcott (R-Mich). Crawford (R-Mich) ani Gamble (R NY).
Wolcott Joins Plea
A key house republican. Rep. Wolcott of Michigan, joined administration leaders in urging that the senate version of OPA be rewritten in a senate - house conference committee.
‘ The bill at present is in worse condition than we have eveF seen in the history of OPA legislation Wolcott declared.
Mr. Truman commented Sunday that the measure, as adopted the senate, is “in terrible

shape” and “couldn’t be worse ” Indirectly. Wolcott called, too. for the senate to back down from its stand that meat, milk, poultry and many other food items should be exempted from price controls.
“It seems to me no price control at all can be written unless the senate is winning to yieid from its position,” he said.
Hopeful of Conference The issue for the house was whether to accept the senate bill or seek a compromise through the conference route.
Wolcott said he did not know what would be the result of conference but was “hopeful can work out something.”
Chairman Spence (D-Ky) of the banking committee then voiced confidence that a conference committee “can write a compromise price control bill that will be acceptable to the house, senate and the president.”
Some Opposition On the other side of the debate, Rep. Jenkins of Ohio, chairman of the republican food study committee. said he had figures indicating the cost of filling the market basket actually had dropped in the last two weeks.
And Rep. Brown (R-Ohio) told his colleagues that if thev send the OPA bill to conference “You will give seven men authority to do all for you.”

BERLIN, July IG (/Pi The Russians handed over a missing American warrant officer and his petite wife to ll. S. army authorities early today, and soon afterward the Americans announced they were releasing three Russian espionage suspects to the Ret! army.
The civilian ( lad Russians, two of whom claimed to be Red army officers, had been arrested in the U. S. zone two weeks ago, it was announced.
The Americans, Warrant Officer and Mrs. Samuel L. Harrison of San Antonio, Tex., disappeared 15 days age when they ventured 500 yards into the Russian zone to see a pet shop dog kennel. Harrison said he was held two days in virtually a dungeon; his wife said she was questioned repeatedly and at one time cried during an interrogation.
Two Still Missing Two other Americans still were missing somewhere in the Russian zone. Gen. M. Dratvin. Russian deputy military governor, advised U. S. army authorities the Red army still was “collecting data” on the men in the neighborhood of Oranienburg, a Russian army district headquarters.
The missing men were (’apt.
Harold Cobin, of Newark. N. J.,
.and Ll. George Wyatt, of Oklahoma ( ity, who were last seen July 4 boarding a train for Oranienburg. 20 miles north of Berlin.
Maj. Gen. James A. Keating.
American commander in Berlin, said strenuous efforts were being made to secure their release. Harrison and his w*ife, Helen, w*ere r I eased to Keating at 1:45 am. at Russian headquarters.
No Trace Found
American intelligence officers said they had no trace of Cobin and Wyatt since the driver of their jeep left them at a Northern Berlin railway station.
Brig Gen. Edwin L. Sibert. chief of the U. S. headquarters} intelligence division, said in a I statement the three Russians had been held on suspicion of espionage in the U. S. zone of Berlin.
“The arrest of these civilian-clad, foreign clandestine operatives in the U. S. zone of Berlin in no w ise violated any written, oral or implied quadripartite agreement in that city,” the statement said. “Our policy in the future must be the same or more severe, deoendnig on the circumstances.”
The Russians are “being turned back’’ to the Soviet zone at the
request of Russian authorities, keeping a lot of anti Democratic who identified the three by name, company.” the statement said. * "
Went 500 Yards Inside The Harrisons, at a press conference in the U. S. sector of Berlin. told howr they had been Arrested July I when they went 500 yards into the Russian district to visit a dog kennel. They said they had been questioned repeatedly during their captivity.
The Russians kept the couple apart for the first two davs of their imprisonment—Harrison in a dungeon-like cellar; his wife in a bare room. After that, they were reunited and received “passable food.” Mrs. Harrison said she had answered “I don’t know” when asked questions such as what ship had brought her to Germany, and how many troops had been aboard.
The Harrisons, of San Antonio.
Texas, looked bewildered when they w ere brought into the armv-sponsored press conference. Harrison had a two-day growth of heard. His wife, w ho had been on the verge of a breakdown when she was released, seemed composed.
Harrison said they were a nest-cd by two motorcyclists wearing civilian clothes but carrying pis- j tols. ‘ I Gilmer w ill speak in (’handler

Russian journalist Says U.S. Place Of Strange Contrasts
By REMBERT JAMES
MOSCOW. July IG (/Pi Il>.. Ellenburg, Soviet journalist who has just returned from a tour of the I rnted States, described America in an article in Izvestia today as a nation of strange contrasts.
“New York’s skyscrapers justify their geography.” Ehicnburg said. “This is an enormous city built on a little i-land. But in the smallest provincial town one may find a few small skyscrapers built I around a few* thousand one-stori-cd buildings. Such are th© con-(trusts of America.”
Ehrenberg abo was impressed ; by the “provincialism” of large I portions of America. He said he came across one group of provincial “dummies" who were “convinced that with the help of Esperanto they could make th© atomic bomb harmless.”
I ut rung to the ra< e question, Ellenburg declared that in all sections of the country h** found I “organizations for defending the I rights of negroes,” hut that he had ; encountered in Mississippi a plan-J ta turn owner who told him that I “blackskinned people in general j are not human beings.”
I “Neither the radio nor the von elating system had an effect on I the mind of this slave owner ” he said.
Ellenburg declared that there j was “nothing more in contrast to the British character than the av-i erage American.”
“Englishmen,” he said, “are I more courteous, phlegmatic, love i to live their lives at home, order I their suits from good cloth and wear them until death, or at least until the next elections But the Americans love everything new. They seldom become used to one apartment until they begin hunting for a new one. which they want to furnish with everything new. throwing away all old furnishings.”
“It would be difficult to find today in western Europe u rite rs equal to Hemingway. Faulkner. Steinbeck or Caldwell, and I could name a few other names.”
