Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 27, 1946, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME Preg and Prea ruU Leased THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS TALKATH MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JTOE ZTTmJT Paper Consists el Two SectionsSecies Opi DECISION MADE AFTER RUSSIAN USE OF POWER Gromyko Wields Kayo Privilege 3 Times But UN Keeps Spain Issue New York Herbert V Evatti Australian foreign minister and delegate to the United Nations security council was reported au thoritatively Thursday to have decided to demand a showdown on the veto question on the com ing session of the general assem bly Sources close to Evaft said the Australian had made that decision after Wednesday nights confused and acrimonious debate over the Spanish ouestion in which Soviet Russia invoked the veto 3 times Evatt has against the veto from the start of the United Na tions His latest move indicates he will fight for removal of the veto from the charter of theU N Delegates to the security coun cil were agreed that the Spanish issue remains on the agenda and that the veto has become an over powering weapon in their deliber ate ons Soviet Delegate Andrei A Oramyko demonstrated that any question brought before the coun cil can be knocked out by the single vote of any one of the Big Five permanent members He wielded the veto 3 times Wednes day night on BritishAustralian proposals concerning the Spanish question After the councils longest and bitterest session adjourned Aus BEGINS AGAINST to Ask Veto Showdown Bad Weather Until August Will Cancel Test

which investigated Spain summed up the situation by saymg Spanish issue by un recorded agreement remains un settled before the council for re vival at the command of any member at any time and council remains com mitted to moral condemnation of the Franco regime Evatt challenged the validity of the method by which the veto was exercised in unprecedented fashion by Gromyko and declared the debate lasting 5 hours and 40 minutes constituted a scandal British Delegate Sir Alexander Cadogan in a United Nations Charter Day speech broadcast to the empire Wednesday night criticized the veto power and said it would force the U N into an all or nothing policy His speech was prepared well in advance of Wednesday nights council session Throughout the protracted ar gument in which Gromyko raised question of parliamentary courtesy In a clash with Council President Francisco Castillo Na jera of Mexico the details of the Spanish issue were almost com pletely overshadowed The soviet delegate engaged in running arguments chiefly with Evatt and Castillo Najera and used the vote to kill a resolution and a separate amendment on which he had been outvoted by the majority Russia had used the veto only twice before in London last win ter on the Levantine question and here last week to defeat a twice watereddown subcommit tee proposal to pass the Spanish case along to The general assem bly Eyalt who clashed with Grom Tko frequently in the final swel tering rounds of debate when the session turned into a grim game of slapping amendments onto rival amendments took a grave view of Gromykos use of the veto It was pointed out that under an agreement reached among the big powers at San Francisco last I year any one of them may offer a proposal and if it is defeated may then revive it by calling for a vote as to whether it is sub stantive or procedural On tha latter question a single big five power may invoke the veto by voting the matter is substantive Gromyko contended that a Aus stralianBrittsh resolution on Spain which he vetoed by a single vote declaring it in the substan tive category mixed both sub stantive and procedural questions Further efforts to separate these

Adri atic port proposed 1 that Trieste he made an autonomous district under Yugoslav sovcreignity or Z that the city be placed under hejoint sovereignty of Italy and Yugoslavia Both plans were turned down by the United States British and French foreign ministers on the grounds that they were unwork able that they ignored the fact that Trieste is ethnologically Ital ian and that the ethnic

TO RESIGN JOB OVER OPA CUT Senator 0Daniels Threatens Filibuster on Control Measure foes of the OPA Thursday began a talkathon against the price control exten sion bill as President Truman dis closed that Economic Stabilizer Chester Bowles seeks to resign presumably in protest against the battered measure Sen E II Moore R Hacked OPA In a speech that was expected to last about 2 hours Sen W Lee ODaniel D stood by ready to carry out his threat to talk until Monday There was no evidence of an organized filibuster to prevent senate action before the present price control law expires at mid night Sunday But the oratorical marathon could achieve the same effect The opposition speech came as administrator leaders promised a night session the senate if ne cessary to reach a vote on the muchamended OPA extension bill The president said Bowles has been trying to quit ever since he took office and that he Mr Truman had been success ful so far in keeping him on the job Bowles conferred with the president Wednesday but refused to discuss the meeting with re porters Mr Truman declined to discuss the watereddown price extension bill now before the senate other sly U was that it has been debated so long He said he would decide after the measure reaches him whether to make a radio address outlining his position on it This was his reply when asked whether he would speak to the people in connection with signiim or vetoing of the bill On Capitol Hill Senator ODan Soufiht to Set and hold the senate floor for a chance to talk OPA to death If he could talk steadily until Sunday midnight or call up vocal reinforcements he coutd succeed theory at least The present OPA taw expires June 30 However there is no present in dication that any colleague will team up with ODnniel in his pro jected talkathon And the leader ship is determined to keep the senate in longhour sessions if necessary to bring the compromise price control extension bill to a final vote As a matter of practical legisla tion even a nowtillSunday non stop speech would cause no more than a brief lapse in price con trol regulations A majority of the senate obviously is in a mood to approve the measure worked out by a joint conference committee And the extension bill would be effective if passed a few hours or even a few days past the deadline Im going to talk as long as I tiave anything to say ODaniel told reporters after the senate re cessed Wednesday night OPA is ail unconstitutional unAmeriean communistic and un necessary It was foisted on us as a wartime measure and I think the war is over The senate leadership did not take ODaniels filibuster threat seriously Majority Leader Barkley Ky called on the senate to come to work early and be prepared to vote He said he thought the roll could be called within two or hree hours Before the overnight recess Senator Morse ROre told the senate hat as a liberal he could not vote for the conference committees extension bill He called it more inflationary than 10 OPA at alt and an exceed ingly unsound unwise piece of legislation Although the measure extends price control a full year it cuts deeply into the agencys powers i transfers final authority over price of foodstuffs to the sec retary of agriculture A decontrol board could override either the agriculture secretary or the price administration for failing to take ceilings off
