Red Cross Unit
Seeks Rent Slash
In an effort fo cut overhead ex
penses, directors of the Douglas
county chapter, American Red
Cross, will meet with the armory
board Monday to seek a reduction
in office rent.
Douglas Sims, executive secre
tary, said the local chapter will
give up Its front offices on the
second floor of the armory and
move into the large room now
used for clothing production ac
tivities. Directors will seek an adequate
rent reduction, Sims said, to com
pensate the loss of office spare.
In the production room, he said,
there is a smaller office which
may be used for conferences.
At a meeting of the directors
this week, it was decided to se
lect an adviiorv committee to di-
rxt the annual red Cross enroll
ment campaign next March. The
committee would nave a major
voice In selecting the fund cam
paign chairman.
Ray Brown, water safety chair
man, reported that 171 certifi
cates have been issued to persons
who have completed Instruction
at Kosenurgs new municipal
pool. Reports are expected next
montn irom swimming classes at
Drain and Keeclsport.

trict court on a simple motion
to dismiss, the Appeals court had
to accept the statements of the
Joint Anti-fascist Refugee com
mittee. It claimed that it waa a
charitable organization.
If this were true, Edgerton
said, to call it subversive was
damaging and "contrary to fact."
Kdgerton said the refugee com
mlttee should have had advance
notice and a hearing before ,t
was Included on any such list.
This, he said, is one of the "basic
standards of fairness."
Kdgerton said the action of the
attorney general amounted to a
taxing ot iinerty or property
without due process of law."
The majority said, however,
that the publication of the list,
with the accompanying warning
that membership in any of the
organizations would be regarded
as one test of federal employe
loyalty, was a necessary step In
carrying out the loyalty program.
Dr. Edward K. Barsky, chair

gress last year. They refused to

President Truman reaffirmed to
day the desire and aim of the
United States to help the Philip

Truman and President Elpldio

presidents discussed "measures
lor the reenforcement and devel

terms of the recommendations of
the report of the Joint Philippine-American
finance commis
sion Issued in 1947."
It said they are "convinced
that the economic progress of the
Philippines will be not only In
the immediate Interest of the two
countries but will contribute vi
tally to the determination of free
peoples to resist those forces
which seek their enslavement so
long as that menace shall threat
en." It said both presidents agreed
that resistance along this line
"will be most effective in areas
where the material well-being of
the peoples allows a full appre
