Soviet Opposition To Lie Laid to Pet Stalin Peeve By Stanley Johnson Lake Nations headquarters today buzzed with reports that a quarrel in the Kremlin between Prime Minister Stalin! and Trygve Lie led to Russia's vetoing of the bluff Norwegian as U.N. secretary-general. Lie spent a week in Moscow last May during a swing around the world's great capitals trying to sell a ten-point peace plan designed to Economic Boom May Curtail Farm Surpluses solve East-West differences. His trip was widely denounced in the United States as toadying to the Russians. Exactly what happened when Lie met Stalin in the fastness of the Kremlin has been a closely guard- ed secret for more than five months. Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Jacob A. Malik, however, let some of it out last night. He told a. closed meeting of the security gathered to try Albert 5. Goss, National Grange Master, Dead New S.

This action was forecast as the North Atlantic military committee resumed the momentous imple- mentation session begun Tuesday. There was fresh speculation in advance of the meeting that Gen- eral Dwight D. Eisenhower may become the supreme commander. The Columbia university president, supreme Allied commander in Eu- rope during World War II, told re- porters at Indianapolis- yesterday that he was coming to Washington within a few days to talk with De- fense department officials. He said he did not know what the depart- ment wanted, but added: "I'm happy and pleased, of course, that the people of Eu- rope have suggested me to head their defense army."

Today that force, spearheaded by the U. S. First Ma- rine division, began prosaic land- ings at Wonsan, more than 100 miles behind those still advancing South Koreans. It now can be revealed that only a military miracle prevented what might have been the blackest page in U. S. military history. The Marinas and tough U. S. Seventh infantry division doughboys were to have stormed ashore on October 20. The miracle happened when the South Korean Third division, in a breath-taking advance which strategists believed impossible, captured Wonsan on Oc-' tober 3, Find Peath Trap Those troops immediately discov- ered that Wonsan was a death trap set by the Beds, who had anticipat- ed landings from the sea. An estimated floating mines guarded the sea approaches. A shifting sandbar would have strand- ed the assault boats offshore. On the beaches was an elaborate net- work of trenches. In front of these were barbed wire fields. General MacArthur, Bear Admir- al James H. Doyle, commander of the amphibious operation, and Vice Admiral Arthur D. Struble, XT. S.

By Cornelius F. Hurley Boston Massachusetts voters ballot next month on the question of going into the. gambling business with a state lottery. The question comes up by initiative petition for a lottery to help finance old age assist- ance. If it passes, Massachusetts would be the only state in the union with an official state lottery. The initiative filed under a constitutional provision which gives the people the right to initiate laws was sponsored by the Massachusetts Society for Old Age Pensions. The society has a second ini- tiative on the same November 7 ballot to fix minimum OAA payments at a month, to make aliens eligible, and to re- lieve children of legal responsi- bility to support their parents. It also would reduce the eligible age from 65 to 63. If the lottery law only a handful of the dozens of initiatives which have been voted on in the last 30 years have been defeated the state will be reaching back more than 100 years. It was in 1811 that the last public lottery was authorized to raise for public im- provements in the town of Ply- mouth. That lottery ran nine years. It paid out in prizes. And it raised for the improvements, Massachusetts voted lotteries out in 1833. Pennsylvania ban- ned them the same year, and New York banned them the following year. Louisiana ran them as late as 1892. The question is so touchy that the Massachusetts legislature ducked a vote on the issue in its last session. Old age assistance is costing Massachusetts about this year. There are more than persons on the rolls. Passage of the law enlarging the pay- ments would jump the cost, it has been estimated, to 000. Norman MacDonald, execu- tive director of state taxpayers association, has pointed out that raising for old age assistancex would mean that every man, woman and child in the state would have to buy worth of tickets a year. The program calls for half the revenue to go out in prizes, 15 .per cent for the blind and for aid children, and the 'remainder to the old age assistance fund. By The Associated Press Allied spearhead reached Red China's Manchurian Rent Control, Prof its Tax Action Sought G.O.P. Blasts Special Session As Election Trick President Tru- man said today he is considering calling Congress into special ses- sion in advance of November 27. Mr. Truman told a news con- ference that if he decides on a special call to Congress he will issue it when his decision is reach- ed, regardless of whether it is be- fore the election or after it. When Congres quit last Sep- tember, it took a recess until No- vember 27. Word that Mr. Truman might call it back sooner had circulated in Washington even before the President's news conference. Some Republicans took the view that any call issued before the election on November 7 could only be regard- ed as a political move. An Associated Press reporter igot the report of a possible call from two different sources in a position to know about White House moves. Rent Control Action These sources said a tightening and extension of rent controls was Jie main item of an emergency program of legislation which Mr. Truman was working on, At his news conference, Mr. Tru- man mentioned rent controls, ex- cess profits taxes and statehood for Hawaii and Alaska as impor- tant legislation for Congress. If Congress does not come back to work until November 27, he commented, it would have only two, or two and one-half, weeks of working time. The present Con- gress goes out of office with the new year and the new to be elected November 7 will take over. Mr. Truman said he had discuss- ed with one or two of the congres- sional leaders, particularly with Vice-President Bsrkley, the ques- tion of calling a" special session to convene a week or ten days before November 27. He said that there would be further discussion with others be- fore a decision was made. Mr. Truman did not mention military manpower but that was reported to be a legislative sub- ject also under consideration in connection with the possible call for an earlier session. Political Move Senator Brewster one of the few G.O.P. spokesmen available here, told a reporter he had not heard of the plan. He added: 'It would be an obvious political "js. South Korean patrols raced unopposed to the south bank of the Yalu river, in the centsr of the uneasy frontier between North Korea and Manchuria. They were the first U.N. troops to complete the long thrust up the mountainous peninsula. Other elements of the same Republic of Korea (ROK) reported under attack by Chinese Communists some 50 miles to the south. There was no high Allied confirmation, however. On the east coast, the U. S. Marine First c'jvision spearheaded! a landing force at cap- tured Wonsan port. The Korean Military Advisory Group reported that the honor of being the first U. N. force to reach the boundary fell to the Seventh regi- ment of the ROK Sixth division.

Senator Lucas of Illinois, the Democratic leader, said in Chi- cago he had not heard of any plan to recall Congress early. So did Senator Myers of Pennsylvania, the assistant leader. Senator McKellar President pro tempore of the Sen- ate who was a White House caller yesterday, said the president did not mention any such plan. A Democratic proposal to tight- en federal rent controls would be expected to have popular political appeal.

The car-lwilding program is of six-months' duration, but the man- datory allocation order covers only the first quarter of 1951. This will permit car builders to place orders at once, with steel deliveries be- ginning in January. Freight cars could begin rolling out of the shops in February or March. 2. Other allocation programs of the same type were made possible by an N.P.A. amendment to its steel distribution order. This will permit allocations of steel, simi- lar to the freight car plan, for steel deliveries to the petroleum and raining industries, i'arm machinery makers, and other 'defense-support- ing industries.
