Fruman Foreign Policy in for Attack Compiled by Merle Mass From the Wires of Associated Press Republican grains in the Congressional elections appear to lerald a slam-bang new attack on the Truman administration’s landling of foreign policy. Although Democrats held onto nu merical control of both houses in Tuesday’s election, there was little remaining doubt that Mr. Truman is up against the tough ist opposition he has been confronted with since the Republicans ivon control of the 80th Congress. The President is still postponing his decision on whether to call Congress back early until he returns to Washington. Since Mr. Truman plans to end his vacation trip within a few days, it means that he will have only a short time to make up his mind on ivhether to recall Congress earlier than its scheduled November 17 date. Meanwhile, election news in Oregon took a turn when it was found Lane county had made an error on its tabulation of the Basic Support bill. Thursday morning the bill was being voted down by 2,000 votes. But it jumped in front during the afternoon when the error was found. With almost 2,000 of the 2018 pre cincts reporting the bill was ahead by more than 2,000 votes. All Was Quiet. . . ... on the Korean front Thursday, as troops on both sides seemed to lie iitwait for orders from higher commands. Some described it as a ‘'diplomatic lull.” There was no major contact reported with Red forces, either Korean or Chinese, in all Korea. Diplomatic strokes apparently were developing behind the backdrop of the war. The U. N. Security Council has asked Communist China to reply to charges of throwing tens of thousands of troops into the war in its final stages. The Chinese seemed to have pulled back to await further orders. Certainly they had the manpower in Korea to keep the pressure on if they wished. It has been estimated the Chinese communist strength in Korea now totals 60,000, and Chinese are still coming across the Man churian border in large numbers. Chinese Communist Diplomats.. . . . who will discuss the Formosa problem at the U. N. will be issued passports at Prague, Czechoslovakia. Members of the group will be re quired to remain in the New York area during their stay. The Red China regime was invited by the U. N. Security Council to send representatives to discuss the Chinese charge that the United States had committed armed invasion of Formosa. Nine members of the Communist party in China will be admitted. Dutch Prisoners in Russia. . . .. . will soon return home from their imprisonment. The announcement caused as much consternation as joy in some Dutch homes. Many wifes of the prisoners were informed that their husbands were dead and have now remarried and raised new families. Included in the list of prisoners, which are receiving a thorough screening, are former pro-nazis and storm troopers. Next Door, the Belgians... . . . will end the State of War with Germany, Foreign Affairs Minister Paul van Zeeland told the house of representatives Thursday. Van Zeeland said the Belgian government has decided to adopt the same attitude as the governments of the United States, France and Eng land. Taxes May Rise Again... . . . notwithstanding the turn of political fortunes in Tuesday’s elec tions. The tax issue, on a multi-billion dollar war excess profits levy, is scheduled for consideration when the present Congress reconvenes Nov. 27. The idea back of it is to prevent profiteering, curb inflation and pro vide money for guns. Itf^he face of vast spending in the Korean war, and threats of other comftiunist aggression elsewhere, tax policy has taken on some bi-par tisan aspect. St. Louis Financier. .. ... William M. Rand has been invited to become Federal Price Stabiliz er, government sources reported Thursday. Rand has not yet agreed to take the post, but officials still hope to bring him to Washington. Alan Valentin, Economics Stabilization Agency administrator, will make a trip to induce Rand to take the post. If Rand does accept he will have a position equal to that of Cyrus S. Ching, Chairman of ESA’s Wage Stabilization Board. The Telephone Strike... . .. was well underway all over the country today and it threatened to paralyze a major link in the nation’s communication system. Almost 33,000 employees of the CIO Communications Workers began their walkout Thursday, pulling with them many other Bell employees. It was estimated that close to 300,000 workers not in the union will be affected. In Oregon there was evidence of some telephone jamming in Portland exchanges Thursday. However the jamming consisted of flooding dial exchanges with calls and had little affect on service so far. Yellow hand bills were being circulated calling on the public to join the jamming “to shorten the strike and assist our members.” The PT&T has some 5,000 Oregon employees, but they are not on strike. Their refusal to cross pick et lines would bring the only difficulties. The Interest Charge... ... on business loans from four to five per cent was announced Thurs day by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. Elmer Harber and Ed ward Rowe, chairman and vice-chairman of the RFC told reporters the big government lending agency also will cut its administrative expenses with the object of making the RFC “pay its own way” instead of being a “sub^ized” operation.

JUight are the famous keys of national honor societies; No. 9 is an important newcomer. It’s the Bell System’s new keyset for the direct dialing of Long Distance telephone calls. And, though not yet "national,” it already has "chapters” in more than 900 cities and towns. By pressing these keys, your operator can dial calls straight through to tele phones in many distant places. Calls go through faster, more accurately. Automatic dialing of Long Distance calls by operators, a development of the Bell Telephone Laboratories, is being extended steadily. This new method of putting through Long Distance calls is especially important right now, when ' the nation is counting on telephone service to help speed the job of defense.
