Since then, he has been stationed in Brussels, The Hague. Montevideo, Rome, and, shortly after the Japanese earth- quake, became counselor of thc American embassy in Tokyo. He al- so served In France as counselor of embassy during the crucial period from 1928 to 1932 and helped ne- gotiate the final reparations settle- ment and the Hoover moratorium. Armour's first ministerial posi- tion was as ambassador to Haiti from 1932 to 1935. Later, he became minister to Canada, then ambassa- dor to Chile, and in 1939 he was appointed ambassador to Argentina.

Ar- mour did his best to persuade Argen- tina to break with thc Axis, but Fetle ration Diplomatic authorities are specu- lating whether the Hungarian coup may be followed by steps to set up a Balkan federation of Soviet-dom- inated states In eastern and south- ern Europe. Until last week. Hungary's non- communist government was the solo break In an otherwise solid lineup of Moscow controlled nations ex- tending from thc Baltic to Adriatic seas. Diplomats also consider as n pos- sible next Russian step Jn eastern Europe some action to the communist-dominated Czecho- slovakia. Meanwhile, a formal United States protest and further economic slaps remained under consideration at thc State deportment to expraw tills government's concern over ths communist seizure of control In Hungary.

Both the minister and 23-year-old Francis Nacy, Jr., legation and son of the outscd prime min- ister, defled an order to return to Budapest for "consultation." Four out of seven diplomatic of- ficials at the legation. Including the minister, joined In the decision to remain at their posts pending further developments. Consolidate From Budapest, reliable reports indicated today that communist forces were seeking to consolidate their hold on the Hungarian gov- ernment by quashing criticism and redoubling border patrols. A Small Landholder party mem- ber of parliament said the com- munists, who ousted pramlcr Fcr- enc Nagy last week, were prepar- ing legislation which would outlaw criticism of their three-year eco- nomic plan and another source said border guards already had been al- most doubled.

If the Democratic party comes a war party, a party of reaction and de- pression, then I'll no longer be a Democrat." Asked if he would support the Re- publican party, Wallace said. "I can't Imagine myself cam- paigning for a Republican under any circumstances." He then modified this statement by saying that he might "make a slight reservation' 'about applying this to Harold E.

Knutson Sees Tax Cut Law Without Truman Signature St. Paul Representative Knutson chairman of the House ways and means com- mittee and a leading proponent of the Income tax cut bill just ap- proved, predicted here Wednesday night that President Truman would allow it to become a law without signing the measure. The Minnesota congressman, rep- resenting the state's sixth district since 1917, said also that tho threat of a coal strike would prompt the President to sign the recently cn- ncted labor curb bill. "However" Knutson declared, "if the President vetoes either the tax cut or the labor control measures he will be handing thc next presi- dential election to the Republicans on a silver platter." The veteran solon said he was confident Congress would be able to repass the labor bill over a veto but expressed doubt with respect to similar action, on the income tax reduction. Knutson. serving his 16th term, said that if Congress could get through a general revision of the federal tax code during this session "I will probably consider tills, my 16th session, as Me capstone of my career."
