Little Chance That General Douglas MacArthur..
. . . will get the power anil authority that he considers necessary to
achieve complete victory over the Chinese Communists In Korea was
seen by officials in Washington.
The expected dispatch of American troops to western Europe, n
widespread desire in high Washington circles for a reasonable Korean
settlement if possible, and the determination to avoid spreading the
war all these factors were felt certain to work against fulfillment of
the conditions described by MacArthur as essential to success.
A New Type Aircraft Carrier, Large Enough... ^
... to handle atomic bombers was part of a vast naval construction
program approved unanimously' Wednesday by the Senate Armed Hei
vices Committee. The legislation, previously passed by the House, now
goes to the Senate for expected speedy approval.
Tiie measure would authorize an. immediate start on construction
and conversion of a large fleet of combat surface ships, submarines,
tankers, and other vessels.
A Universal Military Training. . .
and service program, including authority to draft 18-year-olds,
was approved by the Senate Armed Services Committee Wednesday by
a 13 to 0 vote.
The vote sends the measure to the Senate, but action there probably
will be delayed until after a decision first on the "troops-to-Europe"
Senator Wayne Morse ( R Ore. i objected to some provisions of the
bill, but agreed to vote to send the bill on to the Senate. Morse failed
in committee in an effort to limit the minimum draft age to 18 years and
<} months. He told a reporter that he intended to push tfils amendment
on the Senate floor.
Continuation of Arms Reduction. . .
. efforts despite world tension was urged Wednesday by United
Nations Secretary-General Trygve Lie.
Lie addressed the opening session of a new U N. committee created to
take up President Truman’s suggestion that talks on arms reductions
and atomic control be combined. Th.- secretary-general pointed out that
he, like Mr. Truman, also had advocated linking of the two subjects.
Efforts at political settlement and the regulation of armaments, he
said, should go hand-in-hand. The 12-nation group will report back to
the 1951 General Assembly on the feasibility of combining the atomic
control and disarmament talks.
Adoption of a Tough and Steep' Tax Increase...
... by Congress to help control inflation and keep the nation s finan
ces on an even keel was urged Wednesday by Economic Stabilizer Krie

,ited in two or three years, "barring a full-scale attack."
Johnston said that legislation soon would be offered to Congress de
signed to "equalize anu stabilize" both farm prices and industrial wages.
He did not disclose any details but he said that the recommendations
would be “equitable and fair."
A Motion of 'No Confidence'. ..
... in the British I.abor government's ability to carry out its vast re
armament program for Britain was introduced by Winston Churchill
in Parliament Wednesday night.
The Conservative leader launched the latest in his long series of
attempts to unseat the Laborites after the House of Commons had de
bated Prime Minister Attlee's program for hours.
The Laborites, through Defense Minister Emanuel Shinwell, had
warned the House that the rearmament program was taken up in the
realization that if the Soviet “experiment” in Korea succeeded, “Berlin
or western Germany might be the next step”.
Shinwell said that Britain has "no alternative but to press on with
strengthening our defenses". '
An Eleventh-Hour Appeal...
... by Chancellor Konrad Adenauer of western Germany to postpone
the execution of seven condemned Nazi war criminals was rejected Wed
nesday night by U.S. High Commissioner John J. McCloy.
The seven men—their mattresses and shoes already removed to
forestall suicide attempts were to have died on an American gallows
at Lands berg prison before dawn today. Adenauer had appealed earlier
Wednesday for a delay, claiming that there were “inconsistencies" in
the verdicts. Wednesday McCloy issued this statement: "... all points
have been considered and no change in my decision is justified.”
A Bill to Require Legislative Lobbyists...
... to register and to report on how they spend their money was
supported Wednesday by representatives of the State Federation of
Labor, State Congress of Industrial Organizations, and by Freeman HoT
mer, Willamette University professor and chairman of the state Young
Republican executive committee.
Senator Richard L. Neuberger, Portland Democrat aud author of the
bill, said that more than 30 states have similar laws. The testimony was jf
given in a hearing before the Senate Rules Committee.
