Streater New City Attorney Six-Day Rail Strike En Harold S. Streater TODAY- Schuman Plan Irks Commies By Joseph Alsop London The temptation is al- most irresistible to stress the comic aspects of French Foreign Named by Council To Succeed Bruski June 1 Harold S. Streater was ap- pointed by the city council Monday night to succeed S. D. J. Bruski who recently resigned from his position as city attorney. At present serving as president of the West End Commercial club, Mr. Streater will assume office June 1 following Mr. Bruski's resignation which becomes effective the end of this month. The newly-appointed city attorney has been invited to attend council sessions during the remainder of the month, however, to become acquainted with the of- fice. _. Mr. Streater, 33, was born in Wi- nona and has lived here continu- ously except for brief services with the federal government in Chicago iand three and one-half years war- time service with the Army.

Murphy, Jr., in a law firm here. was accomplished after two ballots were taken at last night's council meeting. Seven Winona lawyers had sub- mitted applications for the position. They were Martin A. Beatty, Milton A. Goldberg, William A. Lindquist, kauris G. Petersen, Ernest D. Blair and John D. McGill. On the first ballot, the race nar- rowed down to the candidacies of Goldberg and Streater and the lat- ter won out on the second ballot by a 5-4 decision. Ballot Made Unanlmour After the election results had been announced, First Ward Alderman Loyde Pfeiffer observed that "I Truman Attacks Obstructionists In Congress at Chicago Cheer President's Party Declaration By Ernest B. Vaccaro Aboard Truman Train President Truman put opponents of his "fair deal" program on not- ice today he will fight to drive "obstructionists" out of Congress. He rode happily back to ington in the wake of Democratic!

Surprise plays precise- ly the part in international rela- tionships as the deception of hus- bands in French farces. Schuman s vitally important move has sur- prised and upset enough people to provide laughs for a month. In brief, the idea of a French initiative at this time was Foreign Minister Schuman's. The idea of taking the initiative by offering economic union of the French coal and steel complexes, with the Bri- tish and other continental producers coming in if they choose, was the Idea of the great wartime ad- ministrator, Jean Monnet. In the preparatory phase, absolute secre- cy was the rule, for the very good reason that the "Comite des the vastly powerful asso- ciation of French steel masters, would have stopped the project if they had heard of it in time. Un- til the American delegation reach- ed Paris, no one knew what was afoot except Monnet, Schuman, French Premier Georges Bidault, of course, and two or three mem- bers of Schuman's personal staff. Even the French high commis- sioner to Germany, cois Poncet, was probably because ing connections with QLC Forges. AT THEIR FIRST jbelieve any one of these men would mve made a good city attorney. I'm ure that we were fortunate in hav- ing so many well-qualified appli- cants for the position." A unanimous ballot was cast for the appointment of Mr. Streater as city attorney. Mr. Bruski submitted his resigna- tion to the council last Wednesday night when he told the council that iie press of. his private practice made it necessary for him to resigrf from the position which he has held since 1947. 3 Billion Aid For Europe Ready for Vote By Joseph C.

De Wolf McCarthy's demand that Secretary Of State Acheson be fired drew a counter blast today from Senator. Myers of Pennsylvania, who said McCarthy is just talking politics. Myers the assistant Democratic leader of the Senate, denounced McCarthy's demand a "deliberate and.malicious-attempt; to under- _ the Comite MEETING, gress Schuman mentioned the project to Secretary of State Dean Acheson, but with so little emphasis or dra- ma that Acheson did not grasp its significance. The cat only really came out of the bag the next day. A member of the American dele- gation urged members of Schu- man's staff to be more construc- tive, remarking that France had almost abandoned the role of a great power by taking so negative an attitude about Germany.

He said he wouln bring the measure up for a vote Wed- nesday. The big global aid program was sprung from a week-long deadlock yesterday by agreement between Senate and House conferees. It was a partial victory both for the administration and for an economy bloc which had fought to trim it. As finally agreed on by the con- ferees _ named by the two cham- bers to iron out differences be- tween the Senate and the House versions the bill provides up to for the third year of the four-year Marshall plan for Europe's economic recovery.
