Dies in New York of Heart Disease Point Lookout N IV ney Hiliman 59 onetime immi grant boy and garment cutter who became one the most contro versial political figures of his time died Wednesday It was HlHman national chair man of the CIO political action committee who became a political storm center in the 1944 presiden tial campaign when the republi can charge of clear everything with Sidney swept the country Republicans dem ocrats and Hiliman the late President Roosevelt pass ing through Chicago during the 1944 democratic national conven tion told Robert Hannegan demo cratic national chairman to clear everything with Sidney regard ing convention strategy and choices Hill mans death came oE a heart condition at his summer bunga low on the shore of Long Island near Long Beach The story thai made the rounds in the 1944 campaign was based on a conference between Hannegan and Mr Roosevelt as the latters train lay on a railroad siding in Chicago prior to the opening of the convention The clear everything with Sid ney phrase became so current that Hannegan issued a formal de nial at a news conference in Chi cago in September of that year The fact is that President Roosevelt with whom I conferred alone on that occasion did not say that Hannegan said Nor did he say anything else that could have been tortured to convey that meaning The story is absolutely untrue Hannegan said he talked witti Hiliman only once during the con vention in Hannegans room and the only statement Hiliman made was that he was for Vice Presi dent Henry A Wallace for re nomination Hannegan said he was for Senator Truman of Mis souri who won the nomination and became president on Mr Roose velts death Hiliman was found unconscious in his bed by his wife Bessie Dr John Cahill a neighbor who received an emergency call had police rush an oxygen tent to the bedside Hiliman failed to rally and died shortly thereafter 1 Killed Several Injured in Railroad Collision in Missouri Washington Mo per son was

Wednesday while supporters of a permanent fair employment practices com mission continue their efforts to send to the floor an FEPC bill vmder socalled calendar Wednes day proceedings Reasons expressed by represen tatives for increasing sentiment for the loan were 1 Nomination of Minnesota Gov Edward J Thye as the states republican senatorial candidate on a straight internationalist plat form 2 Support of the loan by Dr Slephen S Wise leader of the American Zionists and by Chair man Sol Bloom DN Y of the house foreign affairs committee 3 Strong speeches made by leading republicans and southern democrats depicting the Joan as a necessity to strengthen Anglo American ties against any en croachment of totalitarianism Leader Barkley DKy to stop loading the bill with amendments that would make it ridiculous Earlier Barkley had told his colleagues he would call a nteh6 session Wednesday night if there seemed any chance the legislation to restore OPA and some of its powers could be shoved to a final vote Thursday On the 10th day of no OPA op erations Barkley argued that speed is important if any price and rentcontrols are tpvbe re stored The senate worked in the shad ow of a

regards as the even more impor tant pricing provisions of the bill Senator Taft ROhio has pro posed a return to the lormula of the original OPA measure under which manufacturers would be allowed price increases to meet average production cost gains in Ibeir industry since the July 115 period of 1940 Taft changed only the 1941 date of the provision to which Mr Truman objected si strenuously in his velo Barkley hoped to beat that with a committeeapproved amend ment which Taft charccd was meaningless because it had so many loopholes The democratic leader indicated that if he can win a victory on the pricing issue he will take the patched up bill to a conference with house members who so far have approved only a 2C day ex tension of OPA in its present form It was the house that sus tained President Trumans veto of the original extension bill Republicans thought that Barfcley lost in the battle with Taft he might abandon any at tempts to revive OPA except for rent controls They said such a result also was possible if the keeps ceilings off meat house poultry eggs dairy products and other commodities Before it can get to a final vote on the revival bill the senate faced the necessity of disposing of a parliamentary block thrown by Senator ODaniel bitter OPA foe ODaniel pulled out of his pocket Tuesday a proposed amendment which would establish a perman ent fair employment practice com mission a move previously ap proved by the house The Texan told his colleagues frankly his only objective was to kill both the FEPC and OPA in a single stroke Since FEPC al ways generates a southern fili buster he said he figured it might provoke extensive talk if offered to the price control measure But his maneuver seemed likely to make little headway Taft told a reporter a motion probably would be made to table the FEPC amendment thus permitting those committed to support FEPC to vote on an indirect question ;
