Truman to Press
'Fair Deal' in 82nd
Compiled by Merle Mass
From the wires of Associated Press
President Truman held his weekly news conference Thursday,
and told newsmen he would continue to press for enactment of
his “fair deal” program despite the Republican gains in Cong
ress. He also said that he had abandoned any idea of calling
Congress into session in advance of Nov. 27.
He also told reporters he was not ready to comment on whe
ther he would run for the presidency in 1952; that he would seek
rent control extension and statehood for Hawaii and Alaska
during the coming Lame Duck session; and that “Acheson is re
maining on the job, and Mr. Acheson is going to be Secretary of
Concerning China Mr. Truman declared the United States has
never entertained any intention to carry hostilities into China.
The president mentioned the ‘‘privileged sanctuary ’ of planes
operating from Chinese airfields which attacked U. N. forces but
made no other comment on the situation.
Meanwhile, Nationalist China's...
. . .T. F. Ssiang told the U. N. Security Council Thursday that great
masses of the Chinese people are captives of Soviet communism and are
being pushed into the Korean#war against their will. Tsiang spoke in
support of a six->power resolution ordering a withdrawal of Chinese
communist troops and assuring Mao tze-Tung’s regime that China’s
frontier with Korea will be respected by United Nation forces.
It is now believed that the delegation from Peiping will not arrive in
New York until Nov. 24. Some delegations speculated that the Chinese
.delegation is timing their arrival with the day Nationalist China s Dr.
T. F. Tsiang takes over the presidency of the council.
Allied Forces Moved. . .
. . . ahead Thursday all along the wintery 250-mile North Korean front
toward the Manchurian border. Resistance was reported spotty. The
troops’ biggest fight was against the cold, but winter clothing is getting
to them slowly but surely. Reasons given for the lack of warm equipment
were that the troops moved faster than the supply lines.
To remedy this the cargo of .a ship in Seattle was removed and 305 tons
of sleeping bags were put in its place. Officials in Seattle said all other
items of winter issue consigned through the port to troops in the Far
East had been shipped previously.
The British Foreign Office. . .
. . .turned thumbs down on an Egyptian demand to pull British troops
lrom the Suez Canal zone. The office said it did not recognize the Cairo
government’s right to upset single handedly the 1936 treaty which binds
the two countries together.
He was commenting on King Farouk’s speech to the Egyptian parlia
ment in which the Egyptian monarch said his government no longer re
gards its treaty with Britain legal.
A Previously Secret. . .
. . . American radar sareen backed by jet fighter patrols to protect
Western Europe against surprise attack has passed its first test.
The test was supplied by communist planes carrying delegates from
England to the communist-line peace Congress in Warsaw.
More Than 2,000
. . . delegates meantime were pouring into Warsaw for the congress.
And more were arriving hourly. This congress will be a continuation of
the congress which was started in Sheffield, England earlier this week.
