President Truman made clear Friday He officially exploded reports that the United States has armed Britain with a supply of the pow erful weapons The chief executives denial was made without qualification at his news conference late Thursday Asked specifically whether there are any atomic bombs over there Mr Truman replied in equally positive terms that there are not The queries were prompted by published reports built around speculation that since Britain had shared in the development of the atomic weapon it had been de cided to give her a concrete stake in the finished products Among diplomats it was hoped the presidents assertion would help eliminate suspicion abroad that Britain and the United States are playing partners in a long range military alliance and at the same time ease tension over the future use of atomic energy as a weapon On other foreign policy subjects however Mr Truman would say only that 1 There has been no decision on the question of approving the army air forces proposal to send a fleet of B29 bombers around the world 2 He has made no choice of an ambassador to Great Britain to fill the important diplomatic post va cated by the selection of W

ff Presidential action toward ending the meat shortage was predicted for the weekend by some top officials Fri day alter an exhaustive cabinet survey ot political and economic aspects of the situation One official acquainted with the cabinet discussion told areporter that President Truman may reach a decision Saturday and possibly ro on the radio Sunday night to explain it to the nation Secretary of Agriculture Ander son told newsmen as he left the white house session with other cabinet members that Mr Tru man is now considering a deci sion Two proposals were reported re ceiving chief consideration They are 1 Lifting or modifying price controls 2 Importing meat from over seas principally Argentina Possible government seizure of cattle or meat supplies was re ported definitely out the window Persons familiar with the presi dents attitude during the hour and a half cabinet session said he inclines now toward modifying price controls rather than abol ishing them altogether While Secretary Anderson de clined to discuss Mr Trumans views he remarked at one point that lowering the price only a few cents might be sufficient to begin a run to market Anderson lid not elaborate on this but reporters inferred that he was thinking of the competitive effects of imported meat As the cabinet meeting broke up there were these other devel opments 1 Senator Taft ROhio issued a statement calling for the imme diate removal of all OPA controls on meat declaring the people pre fer pork chops to price control 2 Rep Celler DN Y urged that the president declare an emergency suspend tariff rates on imported meat and end what he called the ridiculous quarantine on fresh Argentine meat Anderson told reporters on leav ing the cabinet session that Mr Truman obtained the views and suggestions of his entire official family but that no decision was made on the spot It was the longest fullfledged cabinet session of Mr Trumans administration While the president was confer ring with his official family Sen ator Taft issued a state ment calling for immediate re moval of all price controls on meat Taft said the public prefers pork chops to price control poli tics and democratic congressmen He added that price controls on all other articles should be abol ished by next April 1 3 months in advance of OPAs scheduled ex piration Anderson told reporters he is having his department study a petition from the OPA beef ad visory committee asking the re moval of controls over livestock prices Everybody in the department is considering this report Ander son said He expects to receive some kind of a recommendation by Friday night Asked whether he will be able to make a decision by Saturday Anderson replied I think I would be able to but I am not saying that I will act then To a question as to whether it is a delusion to believe the meat shortage can be solved by import ing beef Anderson said Thats a hard question to answer because lots of things can start a run He emphasized that the decision on importation as well as all oth er aspects of the meat problem is up to Mr Truman Meanwhile Rep Celler urged that the president declare an emergency suspend tariff rates on imported meat and remove what he called the ridiculous quarantine on fresh Argentine meat By MERREVIAN SMITH UP White House Reporter Washington Presi dent Truman does something about the meat situation soon the white house social season may be a cal oric flop The tooth paste ads say to avoid soft foods But the ambas sadors and cabinet members and their smartly gowned ladies who dine with the Trumans this win ter wont have a chance Theyre trapped As the white house cooks braced themselves for the first series of state dinners and receptions since Pearl Harbor the best they could hope for on their customarily lavish menus was chicken turkey or fish Unless of course the president waves a magic wand and meat be comes available before the social season begins in November For obvious reasons of equal sacrifice the white house could not and would not serve lavish meat courses when the shelves of the nations butchers arc as bare as Mother Hubbards cupboard The white house is having trouble like virtually every other household in America in getting meat Not that the president couldnt roar and demand a good red beefsteak and get it But he doesnt want to play that way The tedium of a fish or fowl diet can be relieved somewhat if the meat shortage continues into the social season This probably will be done through expert cook ing and luxurious variations into such related items as capon and pheasant But almost anv food even wieners and theyre hard to get too woitll far more sump tuous than usual when served on the lavish formal gold dinner service of the white house The formal white house social season opens on Nov 26 with the first of 2 diplomatic dinners Then follow 10 dinners recep tions for the diplomats members of the cabinet the supreme court agency heads and leaders of the congress army and navy The formal season ends on Feb 18 with the congressional reception Mr Truman was asked at his news conference Thursday if the return of the social season meant the return of white tie and tails de riguer for all male guests at formal white house affairs before the war Because formal clothes were so scarce the president said the wlile house would be kind to its guests this season They could wear either the more informal black tie and dinner jacket or the extremely proper white tie and tails Then Mr Truman remarked that he would wear tails This gave a pretty good indication that scarcity or no scarcity most of his male guests would scrape up tail coats from somewhere 8 Killed in Crackup of Military Airplane Rio De Janeiro United States
