President to Meet
Compiled by John Barton
From the wires of Associated Press
President Truman and .Gen. Douglas MacArthur will meet
this weekend, somewhere in the Pacific. The purpose of the meet
ing is to discuss “the final phase of United Nations actions in
According to Charles Ross, White House secretary, the inia
tive tor the meeting was made by Mr. Truman. Ross also said
that the decision to hold the meeting came up “fairly fast.” How
ever, he did say that it was not the result of any sudden emcr
gency. This will be the first meeting of the President and Mac
Arthur, who have never seen each other. MacArthur has not
been in this country since 1937.
President Truman. . .
... will deliver two important speeches after his return from his Pa
cific rendevous with MacArthur. The first will be in San Francisco, Oc
tober 17. No site has been selected for the talk, but the message will deal
with foreign policy, and will be “non-partisan.”
Mr. Truman’s second talk will be given before the UN on October 24.
And it is expected that his review of the Pacific situation will be the ba
sis for the speech.
Yugoslavia Joined Forces...
. . . with several other small powers Tuesday in support of the Seven
Power Plan. This plan authorizes the United Nations General Assembly
forces to combat aggression. Australia, Peru and Brazil were the other
countries backing the U. S. led program.
_ Immediately after this announcement, Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Y. Vishinsky told the UN Political Committee this Anti-Agression Plan
"would explode” the UN charter from top to bottom if some parts of
their proposal were adopted. He was particularly bitter about a provi
sion for calling the assembly within 24 hours when the Security Council
was paralyzed by the veto.
Vishinsky felt that this was merely a proposal by the 7 powers to
liquidate the veto. Vishinsky’s statement had been eagerly awaited by
Western diplomats who wished to know if there was any chance of Soviet
agreement on a major part of the resolution.
... for December were announced yesterday, and the figure was set at
40,000. This compares with-50,000 in September, 50,000 in October, and
70,000 in November. The December call will bring the total to 210,000.
The Navy and Air Force which so far have not asked for draftees, will
not ask for any in December it was*disclosed. .The Army will thus re
ceive the total number, which will be selected from local draft boards
with men in the 10 to 25 age bracket.
... is the latest thing to be put under tighter control by the govern
ment. The terms as they now stand require non-veterans to make cash
down payments ranging from 10 per cent on houses costing under $5,000,
to 50 per cent on houses priced from $24,250 and up. Down payments for
veterans will run from five to 45 per cent.
The controls are aimed at cutting the pace of home-building from the
present record rate of 1,300,000 homes a year, to a maximum of $00,000
in 1951. The control terms will apply to houses started since “noon on
August 3”, and not covered by loan commitments made before that date.
A New Stabilization Board...
. . . was set up by President Truman Tuesday, to bp headed by Cyrus
K. Ching, present head of the government Conciliation Service. The
board will have nine members, and will be part of the new Economic
Stabilization Agency. There will be three members from each of the
Public, Labor, and Business arid Industry. Ching will be one of the pub
Dr. Alan Valentine was appointed to head the ESA, and Ching’s board
will make recommendations to Valentine concerning policies for holding
down wages in the event of wage-priee controls. Yet to be named is a
Director of Price Stabilization, who will also work under Valentine.
Vice President Barkley..
.. . will be in Tacoma, Wash, today for the first of two speeches in the
Seattle area. The subject of the Tacoma talk has not been announced,
but the VP will speak from a stand at a downtown intersection. Wednes
day night Barkley is scheduled to address the annual Jefferson-Jackson
Day dinner in Seattle.
Sen. Glenn Taylor's Extradition. ..
. . .will not be carried out if Gov. James E. Folsom of Alabama has
anything- to say about it. Taylor lost out on an appeal to the U. S. Su
preme Court this week from a disorderly conduct conviction in Birming
ham two years ago. At that time he was given a 180-day sentence.
Birmingham Police Commissioner E. C. Connor said he would "leave
no stones unturned’’ to get the Senator back to Alabama to serve out his
term. Meanwhile, Folsom said his administration had been doing all pos
sible to eliminate “political prisoners.”
“I am not going to be a party to anything that means taking away the
political rights of any man,” Folsom said.
National Guard Units.
... of the 60th Air National Guard Fighter Wing will be reorganized
November 1. The Wing will be redesignated as the 142nd, but this change
will have little effect on the number of personnel.
Wing headquarters will regain in Spokane, but Group combat head
quarters will be at Portland. Designation of three of the four squadrons
will remain the same. The fourth, at Portland, will be known as the 142nd.
Gen. Wallace, Commander of the 60th said the organization is a move
to unify the wing as an self-sufficient fighting organization, one that
could be called upon to act as a unit without depending on other Air
Trucker John Castner. . .
... is back on his Portland-Roscburg run today, after winning for the
second year the national championship in driving a heavy duty truck and
trailer. Castner is a Pierce Freight Dines driver.
