Under the plan outlined, the city council working with the park board will at an early meeting, through resolution or motion, make formal request to the Minnesota state high- way department for a conference at which a definite effort wll be made to consolidate the two developments. At the present time, H. G.

By Marvin L. Arrowsmith Washington New demands arose on Capitol hill today for thi .dmlnlstratlon to weigh its foreign id program against soaring prices at home. But even as many lawmakers were voicing doubt that a special session of Congress should be convened to consider emergency help abroad, the State department heard its third urgent plea from Italy that the fate of that country hangs on additional American assistance before this year ends. Senator recent- ly returned from a six-weeks tour of Europe, summed up what appear- ed to be a growing sentiment among Congress members that prices at home and'demands for help abroad are "two halves of the same apple." At the same time the' general ;enor of congressional comment has jeen to proceed slowly.

The former Minnesota governor only avowed 1948 Republican prcsl dential candidate, said in an addres- prepared for a state chamber o: commerce luncheon "The shortaRi of food around the world for this next winter requires immediate ae- ,'tion." Unless we conserve food, he add- ed, "the pressure of demand on dwindling food supply next winter will drive our high prices even higher and increase the danger of I boom and bust in the American 'economy." Stassen asserted that only the President and the government could provide "effective national leadership" for the conservation program. As to the Marshall plan, the World War H naval captain said "My urgent message today is that speed is necessary in its implementa- tion." "The he declared, "should promptly advise the country of the clear fact that Europe can- not move into this next winter without n definite program from tills country.
