Miss Greer Garson of "Mrs. Miniver" movie fame stopped briefly in Lubbock with her husband, Buddy Fogelson, Dallas oilman, and I. B. Baren, a friend, on their way from Dallas to the Fogelson's Forked Lightning ranch near Santa Fe, N.M, The quiet, unassuming Academy award winner who was conservatively dressed in a light green suit and red pumps, proved even more likeable than ever in an interview with two Morning Avalanche reporters shortly after she had finished her dinner. Agrees To .Talk When approached in the dining room by the reporters, Miss Garson at first said she "was very tired and dusty from the long auto trip but would be pleased to pose for pictures and give an interview." While awaiting the trio to finish their meal it was noticeable that diners would glance at the lovely star and then quickly look again as if to say "well, she looks familiar, but I can't place her." And as the pert Scotch redhead left the dining room she seemed to show no notice of the stir which she created and the whispers which preceded her departure. When asked if she would accompany the reporters to the mezzanine floor where the picture could be more readily posed. Miss Garson laughingly said that "she was shy around strangers," but once the flash bulbs began popping See GREER GARSON Page 10 U. S.

(INS) —President Truman today scornfully denounced what he called Russia's filibuster in the United Nations against world peace and slammed the door on any conference with Generalissimo Stalin to end the global crisis. In blunt language, the President told his news conference that he never again will sit down in a "big three" or "big four" conference with Stalin and other heads of state in an attempt to settle world problems. He said that must be done in the United Nations. Ends Old Invitation Mr. Truman thus withdrew his long-standing invitation to Stalin to come to Washington and talk things over. The President angrily blasted the delay-and-confusion tactics to which he said Soviet Delegate Jacob Malik is resorting as president of the United Nations Security Council, blocking its efforts to end the Korean war. He repeatedly accured Malik of filibustering against peace, but said that the magnificent work of U. S. Delegate Austin and British Delegate Jebb is breaking the Russians down.

The legislators Delegate Warren Austin came within inches of naming the Kremlin as the real aggressor in the Korean war. Taking the Security Council floor for a new broadside, Austin said Russia is the only great power which has held aloof from condemning the North Korean aggressor and, in loud voice, cried out: "Refusal to condemn such aggression will make it clear who is for peace, and who is not." Flings U. S. Charge A moment later he flung at Soviet Delegate Jacob Malik the assertion that "international Communism" could end the conflict in Korea tomorrow. Austin excoriated the North Korean "zombie regime" and rejected Malik's demand that the North Korean representative be called to the council table during the debate on the Far Eastern conflict. "To represent a people," Austin added, "should we hear the slave driver, the secret policeman, or See RUSSIA Page 10 U. S.

OWEN Associated Pre*» Staff Writer •IT7ASHINGTON, Aug. 10. — The W HouseNiy a smashing 383 to 12 vote today passed a bill to give President Truman a free hand to clamp on sweeping price-wage- rationing control* if he deems necessary. The Senate opened debate on a similar bill. The House action went far beyond-powers Mr. Truman had requested to control production and voted the extra standby authority as insurance against war Inflation. But Senator Taft (R-Ohio) appealed to Congress to keep for itself the right to invoke such drastic powers, and not glvt th» choice to President Truman. Tift Taket Isnw Congress, Taft said, would be "completely abdicating its authority* and its duty" it it gave Mr. Truman such a free band. In this, he took direct issue -with the. Senate Banking .committee which said in a report today that Congress would be remiss in its duties if it did not provide the President enough power to meet
