Haakinson Washington Southern sen- ators with Republican help saved the right to filibuster yesterday and administration leaders said the Truman civil rights program may be as good as defeated. Two showdown votes, both 46 to 41 in favor of the Dixie lawmakers, defeated administration efforts to gag debate with a rules change and left Senate leaders with a tough decision: Should they continue the fight and try to outlast the southerners in the current filibuster now in its] 12th day, or should they concede! defeat and get on with important bills like rent control and labor law changes now piling up?

New Taxes By Stewart Alsop since the war ended has there been such wide-! spread fear of coming economic' tion' cutting a small nerve center near the spine that controls the blood Nine royal doctors issued a bulletin after the operation, declaring: "His majesty's condition, is entirely satisfactory." Professor J. R. Learmonth, Edinburgh surgeon, performed the opera- storms. This fear has already had two important political consequen- ces. One is that President Truman's snti-inflation program is already] sunk virtually without trace. No-, body believes any longer that the' Congress will grant the President! the stand-by price and allocation controls he has demanded. A sec- ond consequence is that the Pres- ident will be lucky to get more than a fraction of his proposed four billion dollars in new taxes, The curious fact is that the gov- ernment economists, peering into their crystal balls and poring over their statistics, find remarkably lit- tle solid, factual evidence to sup- port these fears for the future. The economists months of 1949 with ths of 1948, and find a very ilar pattern. In January and Feb-, ruary of 1948, there was a off, a slowing- up of the boom, jbase said.

Soviets Fear Turkey Will Join Alliance Final Terms of Atlantic Pact Being Worked Out By Edwin B. Greemvald Ankara, Turkey (JP) Russia seems to be making guarded but anxious inquiries into possible for- mation of a Mediterranean defense I alliance which would be linked to the projected North Atlantic pact. There were strong indications that Russian Ambassador Alexan- der Lavrishev has discussed the proposed Mediterranean agreement in recent conversations here with envoys of other nations. Diplomatic sources said he talked in the last three weeks with am- bassadors of Prance, Italy, Great Britain, Greece and, perhaps, the Tjnited States. American sources withheld comment. Foreign Minister Necmeddin Sa- dak of Turkey said he had no in- formation about Lavrishev talking with Turkish foreign office officials about a Mediterranean regional tre- aty. Diplomatic sources in London said earlier that Russia had asked the Turkish foreign office about Turkey's interest in such an agree- ment. Russia and Turkey have a common border of more than 200 imiles, Turkish officials as far back as six months ago- urged formation of a regional se'curity belt in the east- ern Mediterranean area. The British informants said Tur- key told Russia in reply that the suggested arrangement would be aimed at securing peace, and not against the Soviet Union. Russia is expected to come out strongly against any Mediterran- ean and when it seems to be taking shape. The Soviet has called the proposed Atlantic agree- ment an agressive alliance against Russia. Final terras of the Atlantic pact are now being ironed out. It would link the United States and Canada with Western European countries in mutual defense. Britain ordered more troops to- day to the Red Sea port of Aqaba. which her ally, Trans-Jordan, said is threatened by Israeli forces. The Israelis were reported within three miles of the port, although Tel Aviv spokesman have denied Arab reports of border fighting. The explosive situation may be resolved on the island of Rhodes where Trans-Jordan and Israel are negotiating an armistice. They signed a cease fire order yester- day.

Cardinals, prelates, priests and members of the diplomatic corps assigned to the Holy See attended the Pontifical mass marking the anniversary of the Pope's coronation. The Pope, dressed in a white cape and wearing his trireg- bee-hive shaped crown carried reverently to 'the chapel in his sedia gestatoria, or ruler's chair. Throngs of faithful along the route cheered him, shouting "Viva H Papa! Viva II Pa- The Pope imparted benedic- tion to all present at the end of the mass, along with a 30- year indulgence. Members of the diplomatic corps wore full ceremonial dress and decorations. Four- teen cardinals, dressed in long red ermine-fringed capes were present. Greetings came to the Pon- tiff on this festive day from all parts of the world. The buildings in Vatican city, the tiny state over which, the Pope rules, were, decora ted with white and golden papal flags and bunting. Benedetto Alois! Cardinal Masella, the first of the car- dinals present to have been el- evated to the sacred college by the Pontiff, celebrated the mass. The Pope notified his repre- sentatives abroad last week that because of "sorrowful con- ditions" facing the church in some parts of the world he did not wish the usual coronation anniversary receptions this year.
