House Asked lo Put New Tag On Goods for UNRRA Relief
Rep. Cannon, Calling "No Newt-No Cash" Tag On UNRRA Fund Threat to Peace, Pleads with House To Reverse Its Vote
By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST
WASHINGTON, June 28.— (AP)—Deploring the action a? a direct slap at Russia, Rep. Clarance Cannon (D-Mo.) appealed to the house today to reverse its vote putting a “no news-no cash’’ tag on future UNRRA relief.
Army Strength To Meet Goal
Demobilizotion Continues At Possibly Temporarily Foster Pace
Br EDWARD E. BOMAR
WASHINGTON. June 28, <-T)_ The army expects to reduce its strength “pretty close” to the interim goal of 1,550.000 men by July I.
Demobilization will keep right on, however, possibly at a temporarily faster pace as a result of the 38-month service limit set bv congress in cntending selective service.
Maj. Gen. Floyd L. Parks, the war departments director of information, said the July I strength objective was in sight without predicting it would be reached.
Other officials said the measure extending the draft until March 31. but exempting 18-year-olds. raised new uncertainties over army manpower. It still is awaiting President Truman’s signature.
Some Question Marks
< The appropriations committee chairman said he was “hopeful” that on a roll call vote the house would nullify the top-heavy standing count of 154 to 53 by which it directed yesterday that I none of a new $465,000,000 UNR-| HA fund be spent in countries denying American correspondents I free access to UNRRA news, j Supporters of the amendment proposed professed confidence, however, that the house would stand pat.
Some Countries Agree
The issue started to come to a head rapidly after President Truman reported to congress Tuesday that all nations receiving UNRRA aid, except the Soviet republics of Ukrainia and Byelorus-ria, have made ‘‘satisfactory arrangements” for uncensored press reporting of UNRRA operations.
Mr. Truman transmitted with his report a message from the Soviet government stating the two republics “contemplated” no relaxation of press censorship, but adding that information on relief activities might nevertheless be obtained through normal UNRRA channels.
House dissatisfaction with this reply provided the momentum which brought yesterday’s “no news—no casn” vote.
The action of the house was a direct slap at Russia,” Cannon told reporters. “It was a gratuitous insult to a friendly nation at a time when we should be doing

President Pledges His Full Support to Bernard Baruch In Message to Delegates

NEW YORK, June 28.—_
President Truman pledged his full support today to Bernard Baruch in a message to the United States delegate as the United Nations atomic commission went into working session.
The president’s message said:

In the meantime the manpower picture shapes up thus:
Since its VE-day peak of 8,-300,000. the army has released some 7,500,000 men and women.
Approximately 200,000 were demobilized in May, and a somewhat smaller number in June. Anticipating Mr. Truman’s signature to the draft extension measure, officials said there might be a temporary return in discharges.

Rep. Dirksen (R-Ill), author of the restriction, claimed that since <2 cents out of every UNRRA dollar comes from the United States, the American people have a right to know how it’s being spent •
“The time has come for this country to stand up and speak our piece,” Dirksen declared. The time has come to quit appeasing.” K
Rep. Clarence Brown (R-Ohio), another supporter of the amendment, said he was certain, the house would not reverse itself, and said he welcomed the opportunity for the members “to stand UP and be counted on this issue.” The senate, which rejected a

Even without the inducement of prospective pay increases. which amount to a 50 per cent raise for privates, recruiting of volunteers has been maintaining an even pace in recent ureeks, after a steadv downward trend.
I he report for the week of June 8-14, the latest received, listed 12.319 volunteers.
The generals as well as the privates are being demobilized.
Bv the weekend, only about 550 will remain on active duty if schedules are met, contrasted him with a peak of 1.541 in wartime.
Further trimming is in prospect in all ranks as the army is gradually reduced in the next year toward the mid-1947 goal of 1,070.000.
Delaware River Pier Collapses;
Five Men Missing
PHILADELPHIA. June 28. —Collapse of a 150-foot Delal ware river pier today dropped at least a dozen workers and a 100-foot crane into 20 feet of water.
At least six persons emerged alive but injured from the tumbling debris and high rolling waves raised by the crash.
Fate of the others was not determined immediately but workmen leaving gates outside the pier said at least five remained unaccounted for.
One of those rescued, 54-y£ar-old William Turnbull, said that a few minutes before the collapse he noticed a crack of about a half inch running toward the end of the wood flooring but had not attached particular significance to

A-Bomb May Be Dropped Early in July
Little Island Still Bears Signs of American Fight For It in 1944
By DON WHITEHEAD
KWAJALEIN, June 28. EF)—A number of the “operation crossroads” staff predicted today the atomic bomb would be dropped during the first 20 days of July even if weather is unfavorable.
“We hope to get a good day on the first of July,” said the officer, who declined to permit the use of his name, “but if we don’t, then w’e’ll wait until we do get one.
“If the weather is unfavorable during the first 15 days of July, then I believed the bomb will be dropped regardless of weather.” He added:
“Believe me, with all the brass and scientists and newsmen and observers present, the chiefs aren’t going to let them sit a-round and not explode the bomb. After July 15 the bomb will be dropped even if the bombardier has to use both vision and radar to find the target ship Nevada.”
Congressmen, scientists and civilian observers traveling a-board the Applachian, Panamint and the Blue Ridge visited Kwa-jalein for four hours today and then left for Bikini.
This little island, now a navy base and one of the aerial crossroads of the Pacific, still bears signs of the American fight for it in February, 1944. The visitors saw blasted pillboxes and beaches where the Yanks landed in assault boats.

City-County Health Doctor Says Both Children Taken To Oklahoma City Hospital

The ministers, considerably encouraged by the solution yesterday of the Dodecanese islands and the French-Italian border questions, instructed their deputies to bring in skeleton drafts of peace pacts for Italy, Bulgaria. Romania. Hungary and Finland for today’s 9 a. rn. CST session.
A British source said that with all five treaties before them, the
peace of the world and the welfare of mankind, is in good hands.
“I have been following and shall continue to follow your work with the closest attention and with every hope and prayer for its success.”
Soviet Russia tossed a voting controversy into the lap of the atomic energy commission today when she served notice that she would fight for a rule requiring a two-thirds vote for approval of •ill questions before that commission.
That was one of the first questions scheduled for action as the commission was called into session to start laying the groundwork for a permanent atomic control agency. (9:30 a m.. CST).
Issue Arose Thursday The issue arose yesterday when the commission’s committee on rules and procedure approved a rule providing that measures could be adopted by a straight majority of the 12 commission members.

Final Selections Made By Board Not Subject to Influence—Eisenhower

WASHINGTON, June 28.—.ZP) —President Truman today nominated 9.800 “top cream” veterans of World War ll as permanent officers in the regular army.
They were selected by the war department from an original list of 108.000 applicants, oil of whom held temporary commissions in the wartime citizen army.

Short-Lived Tornado Strikes in Detroit
DETROIT, June 28.—(/P)— Property damage estimated in hundreds of thousands of dollars was left today in the destructive wake of a short-lived but vicious tornado that tore into Detroit yesterday afternoon.
The twister, second in the area in little over a w’eek, swept across the Canadian border from Windsor, leaped the Detroit river and hit a northwest industrial section about a mile from downtown at 3:37 p.m.
In the three minutes it lasted, the tornado ripped roofs off more than a score of buildings and piled automobiles like kindling in a mile-long area.
There were no fatalities, although seven persons were treated for cuts and bruises. The tornado was far less destructive than the June 17 twister, which claim-**»• bv<?s and injured hundreds. Windsor, which bore the brunt of last week’s tornado, suffered only minor damage yesterday.
