CPA Heads Making Report On Findings of Housing For Vets, Business Firms
Much of Construction of Non-Home Building Started Before Order Passed; Denial Orders Increase Weekly
By STERLING F. GREEN
WASHINGTON, June 25.—(AP)—More than $1,370,000,-000 worth of non-home building has been okayed since the governments construction controls went into effect in March.
A civilian production administration report disclosed this today. It showed that in the first ll weeks of the order designed to curb such building in order to make more materials available for new homes there were 31,457 approvals for store, factory, office and other non-housing construction and 14.971 rejections.

Rep. Brown Says That House May Insist on Reporters Seeing How Monay Spent
By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST
WASHINGTON, June 25, CP1_ A “none-for-Russia” tag on this country’s $465,000,000 final contribution to UNRRA became a definite possibility today.
President Truman’s disclosure that Moscow has balked at letting American correspondents report on the relief agencies activities in two Soviet republics sent influential house members into an angry huddle.
They tried before but failed to ban the use of United States funds in nations which refused to give American press and radio representatives free access to UNRRA news.
Didn’t Go Far Enough
Finally they settled for a provision requiring the president to seek through “appropriate channels” to obtain admission of American correspondents to recipient countries.
“Apparently we did not go far enough and will now have to get tougher,” Rep. Clarence Brown (R-Ohio) told a reporter. “It may be that the house now will be willing to insist that no UNRRA funds supplied by the United States be used in countries which won’t allow our reporters to go inside and find out how the money is being used.”
Brown was one of the leaders in the previous fight to put a “no reporters—no money” provision into UNRRA legislation.
The final $465,000,000 American allotment to the UNRRA fund is included in a deficiency appropriation bill scheduled for house consideration late this week. It will bring this coun
try’s total contribution to $2,700,-000,000.
Brown said he was unable to see why Russia refused to permit American reporters to check on UNRRA operations when all other nations have removed press bans in that respect.
Report To Congress
Reporting to congress on Russia’s position, Mr. Truman said yesterday “satisfactory arrangements are in effect to permit American press and radio representatives to report without censorship on the UNRRA programs in all UNRRA receiving countries except the union of Soviet Socialist republics.”
In his report to the house through Speaker Rayburn, the president transmitted a Soviet diplomatic memorandum asserting that “the censorship rules in force for all correspondents in the Soviet union will be applied to correspondents desiring to report on the utilization and distribution of UNRRA supplies.”
Accredited UNRRA representatives. the president said, have been given “necessary facilities for observing an^ reporting” the agency’s activities in the two Soviet republics involved — the Ukraine and Byelorussia.
Through these representatives, the Soviet memorandum added, American official circles and the public “will have the possibility of receiving information xxxx .**

Building Fund Levy Reason for Voting In School Distrid
Voters of School District 19 were going to the poll Tuesday morning casting ballots on a five-mill building levy. All voting is' being done at the Convention hall.
School District 19 includes Ada and some adjoining territory.
The election is similar to the one voted a year ago that has raised approximately $30,000 in building funds.
Supt. Rex O. Morrison explains that Ada’s growth and expansion have already crowded local schools, especially the grade schools, seriously.
Two of the older buildings are in need of replacement and any building program will call for providing for Ada’s increasing number of school children.
School officials here hope and plan to acquire funds without necessity of a bond issue, which would require payment of interest over 20 years along with the principal.
Harvey Sells 152 Herefords For $85,640
Famous Herd Sire, H. T. Royal Rupert, Sells For $3,500 to Oklahoma Citian
W. E. Harvey dispersed of 152 head of registered Herefords Monday with cattle going to more than a dozen states and to about 25 buyers.
The Herefords sold for a total of $85,640 with the famous Harvey herd sire, H. T. Royal Rupert bringing $3,500. R. W. Robberson of Oklahoma City purchased the bull to put on his ranch at Mustang.
Plans were made for the sale to continue through Monday and Tuesday, but buyers bid fast enough for all of the animals to be sold before dark Monday.
More than 1,000 persons were present at the sale, which started about 11:30 o'clock M o n da y morning when A. W. Thompson, auctioneer, took the stand to start selling cattle.
The second highest price animals brought $3,000 and was sold to the Harrisdale Farms af Fort Worth, Tex. The third top priced bull went to the Perrin Farms at Charilton, Iowa, and was purchased for $2,750.
Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Biorseth paid $1,325 for the top price for a cow. The couple bought their first registered Herefords from the Harvey ranch and have been a regular customer at his annual sales. They paid a total of $6,150 for eight animals Monday.
The heaviest buyer at the sale was A. L. Yocom of Chariton, Iowa. He paid $9,240 for 20 Herefords and four Holstein nurse cows.
The bulk of the buyers came from Iowa. Oklahoma, Nebraska, Texa^, Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi.
Mr. Harvey said that John Dudley of Corydon, Iowa, is sending his son to the Harvey ranch to learn how it was operated in addition to learning more about Hereford cattle.
Vessels to Be Kept Pron A-Bomb Test
By ELTON C. FAY
ABOARD THE U.S.S. MOUNT McKinley, June 25.—(ZP)—Vice Adm. William H. Blandy said today his ships would run off with force if necessary any vessels, American or foreign, which interfere with the atom bomb test.
At the same time, the task force commander disclosed that effective today all Operations Crossroads planes would be banned from an area within 150 miles of Bikini, scene of the July I test.
Asked by reporters if he thought Bikini and other islands in the Marshalls belonged to the United States, Blandy answered that he believed they did “at least at the present time.”
Blandy explained that routine notices were issued to all mar- ‘ iners some time ago to stay away from the Bikini area because of dangers of the test, then added:
“Is any ship interferes with the test in any way, we will use force if necessary.”

trol followed by a global atomic arms race stirred congress today as the result of Russia’s blunt “do-u-our-way” approach to the problem.
Leading lawmakers declared emphatically that this country is not going to surrender its a-bomb secrets until tested international controls are set up—something which the Soviet plan does not appear to guarantee.
A charge by the Communist newspaper Pravda that the American plan for international control of the weapon “reflects evident striving for world ru|e” provoked sharp counter criticism from members of the senate’s special atomic committee.”
Russia Rejects Ur Mg ILL Pretest
Reds Reject Protest Against News Freedom In Romania
WASHINGTON, June 25,
Acting Secretary of State Ache-son said today Russia has flatly rejected a strong United States! protest against suppression of news freedom in Romania, and has forced Reuben Markham of the Christian Science Monitor to leave that country.
Acheson told a news conference the United States had registered its objections to the treatment of Markham in both Moscow and Buharest a month ago and that it had been turned down in both places.
Word had just been received from the Soviet ministry of foreign affairs, he said, contending that the American argument furnished no foundation for rescinding the Soviet action against the American newsman.
The Kremlin takes this view, Acheson said, despite the fact that the American government considers suppression of news freedom in Romania a violation of the Potsdam agreement made a year ago by Premier Stalin, J President Truman and Prime j Minister Attlee.
Acheson said the Christian Science Monitor has advised the state department that Markham left Romania June 22 and is now in Athens. Col. General Susai-kov, ranking Soviet military authority at Bucharest, had ordered him out at the latest by today.
Markham had written stories on conditions in Russian-occupied communist dominated Romania to which the Russians objected.
Calling the charge “ridiculous,” Senator Russell (D-Ga.). a committee member, told a reporter he thinks “the Russians should stop judging all other nation’s motives by their own selfish attitude's.”
“Nobody in the world has ever offered to give away so much for so little,” the Georgia senator declared. “The Baruch plan is a generous proposal in which we offer to give away a development bought with our genius and our money. All we ask in return is protection for the world and ourselves against its use for destructive purposes.
“I am bitterly opposed to revealing one iota of information until we have some irrevocable plan of inspection and I think the majority of congress is in the same frame of mind. There can be no veto in the operation of such international control.
The Georgia senator said he fears Russian insistence on the veto, renewed in the Pravda outburst. n ay deadlock U. N. atomic negotiations, a view shared by Senator Edwin C. Johnson (D-Colo.), another committee member.
Could Mean Armament Rare
Both said the result of ultimate failure to agree on international controls is liable to be a new armaments contest.

The senate had voted to draft 18 and 19-year-olds.
The present draft law expires on June 30. The senate originally had voted for an extension until next May 15 and the house until February 15.

Many Powers May Be Taken From Agency
House, Senate Then President Truman Must Sign Bill It Price Control Stays
Bv FRANCIS J. KELLY
WASHINGTON. June 25. JP— An OPA bill far short of what the administration asked but a good deal less stringent than it expected went to the house today from a night shift conference session.
Left intact were price controls over meat, butter, cigarettes and gasoline, but the one-year extension of the war-born agency vanked away many of OPA s powers over the national economy.
The house, then the senate, and finally President Truman must approve the measure if it is to keep a1! price ceilings from expire* next Sunday midnight.
Although a last minute decision knocked out sections which would have ended controls over livestock, poultry, dairy products, tobacco and petroleum at the end of this month, manv of the bill’s provisions were written specifically to force a raise in prices.
Bowles Fights Back
Advocates contended that such a course would spur production and put the nation on the highway to prosperity. But Stabilization Director Chester Bowles damned them in advance as “booby trop” breeders of inflation.
1. An end to OP.Vs controversial program calling for specific quantities of lower-cost clothing.
2. A halt to so-called cost-absorpt ion on such things as autos, refrigerators and radios.
3. A requirement that average unit cost increases since 1941 must be reflected in all price ceilings.
Last night’s session was forced by widely varying extension bills passed separately by the house and senate. *
The conferees representing both chambers—convened behind locked doors at 8 o’clock last night in the capitol office of Senate? Barkley (Ky), the majority leader.
Three and one-half hours later Barkier beckoned 20 waiting reporters into the marble-decorated room and announced the agreement.
A majority of the seven delegates from each house signed the committee's recommendations, he reported.
Each house has its choice of voting the conference’s recommendations up or down. or sending the bill back to the joint committee with instructions for specific changes.
Bai kiev carefully had avoided a roll call vote in the senate on the meat-poultry - dairy decontrol amendment, which was approved bv a narrow magin rn the banking committee.
The senate lost out in conference on all specific decontrols, however, it prevailed on the full year's extension, for the house had voted only nine months beyond June 30.
Senate theories came out on top again in creation of a three-member decontrol board, to be appointed bv the president and confirmed by the senate. Independent of OPA, the bi-partisan board could overrule the price administrator or the secretary of agriculture if either, without good reason, rejected an industry’s request to lift ceilings.
The secretary of agriculture was given control over all farm products, whereas heretofore
