jectors were Senators Vernon Bull (D., LaGrandr) and Russell Gard
ner (I)., Newport),
The surprise motion for a tribute to MacArthur wus made by Senator

the general there and invite him to address the national DAK con

New censorship regulations, issued by Lt Gen. Matthew Ridgway,
t#iew U. N. commander in Korea, banned all references to the exact
^ size and location of Chinese and Red Korean units said to be massed
in the hills north of the dam.
The Reds set up a smoke screen in an effort to conceal their move

e ...nine months ahead of schedule or so she says. She boasts that
t she has topped her prewar production by 73 per cent, and now ranks
second only to the United States in production.
- Great gains were made in the most important parts of the plan, said
Moscow Radio, but shortcomings in other fields were admitted.
"There was not and there is not now any unemployment in the
kovlet Union," the broadcast added. There were over 39 million workers
employed at the end of 1930, claimed the Russians.
Bw Monday night's announcement by Moscow didn't include any
figures on non-ferrous non-iron metals. This may be significant,
Finer reports have reached the west that Russia is suffering from a
hortage of nickel, copper, anti cobalt.

. . .in the English Channel with 75 officers and men aboard. The ship
has not been heard from since taking a practice dive in the waters off

however, placed little hope in this.
The U. S. Navy offered two destroyers to help hunt for the submarine;
the search was still continuing Tuesday night.

Gov. Douglas McKay Will Not Seek to Fire...
. . .the State Liquor Commission Administrator William W. Ha a
tnond. The governor said he had no intention of asking the commission
lo dismiss Hammond, a move recommended by the Multnomah Grand
Jury after an investigation into Oregon’s liquor control setup.
“There have been no indictments, nor charges of corruption or dis
honesty, after this tremendous job (the grand jury's investigation)
was TJompleted," McKay said.
But he agreed that strict law enforcement is needed, and said that
an effort is being made to better conditions,
“But with only a4sniall force in the employ of the commission,. ..
any lack of rigid enforcement cannot be placed entirely on the door
step of the commission,” he added.
