"Anyone who says I have does not understand my position." AFL • CIO President George Meany killed the wage moratorium suggestion last Wcfdnesday.

"We must develop the necessary purchasing power to stimulate our economy," he declared. "We must convince industry that it cannot continue to chart ‘too high’ prices and still hope to sell its products. We mist take the profit out of inflation—if necessary by confis calory 'axes."

While indicating they believed the report would be devoted principally to evaluating experiments aimed at controlling weather for peace.ime uses, the committee representatives said they believed the report would also refer to control for military purposes. For example, they said, the report might include a statement made in a speech by Dr. Henry Houghton of the Massachusetts Institr-te of Technology that: “I shudder to fhink of the consequences of a prior Russian discovery of a feasible method of weather control ... an unfavorable modification of our climate in guise of a peaceful effort to improve Russia’s climate could se riously weaken our economy and our ability to resist."

Man Admits Heading Group To Bar Negroes DOYLESTOWN, Pa., Dec. 11 W —John R. Bentley testified today he was an organizer of an association to keep Negroes from moving into the community of Levittown and that the group considered but rejected a plan to seek Ku Klox Klan help. Bentley testified in Bucks County Court where he is one of seven persons against whom the commonwealth seeks a permanent Injunction proh'biting harassment of the community's only Negro family. Agitation and racial tension were precipitated last August when \Villiam Myers Jr., his wife, Daisy, and their three children became the first Negro family to move to Levittown. A number of arrests resulted. State police were stationed around the Myers home to prevent threatened violence. Under cross-examination, Bentley denied the association ever meant to use force to get Myers to move. He said the aim was to try “peaceful means." He said the Ku Klux Klan had been discussed at meetings of the association in August. Bentley testified the association, known as the Levittown Betterment Assn., had 1,000 members. Judge Edwin H. Satterthwaite gave attorneys for both sides 30 Ethan Allen, hero of Ticondero- days to file written briefs, ga, spent his last few years ini Meantime, the temporary in-Burlington, Vermont, where he is';junction he granted last month buried.    ‘remains in effect. 3-Point Plan To Aid South L.AUREL, Miss.. Dec. 11 W -Rep. William Colmcr <D-.Miss) outlined today a three-point program which he said wou'd help the South assort its rights nationally. ,^ddressing the Laurel Kiwanis Club. Colmer said the South should: 1. Go as a united South to Democratic national conventions; 2. become a united bloc in Congress, and 3. if necessary, form a third party. If the South had stood behind the States Rights Party in 1948 neither Harry Truman nor John Dewey would have been elected president, he said. Instead the prsident would have been chosen by Congress where each state's vote would be equal, Colmer argued. ♦ “There is no difference in the phi osophies of the two major parties," Colmer said. “The Republicans, at all costs, are now trying to recapture the Negro vote they lost to the Democrats in 1932." Colmer said the South has suffered from its one-party system because “we are taken for granted and, consequently, the NAACP, the ADA and the CIO have more influence in our party than do we in the South."
