This probably will involve shov- ng aside for the time being the civil rights proposals the president s expected to repeat in his message. He is said to have decided to report personally to congress a day or two before the November 2 election results are officially canvassed January 0. Leaders said this would not mean that the controversial civil rights issues—including proposals to ban state poll taxes, make lynching a federal offense, curb job discrimination and eliminate Jim Crowism —will be by-pnssed pcrmanetly. But the Democratic chieftains apparcntlv have decided that the best time to make hay with their program is early in the session before a threatened civil rights filibuster can gum up the machinery in the senate. Mr. Truman already has made it clear his program will be built around the Democratic platform and an expansion of tho proposals he made in a 21-point message to congress on Sept. 6. 1945. Thai apparoantly moans he will suggest—among other things —repeal of the Taft-Hartlcy act, standby price controls, lon^-rnnge housing legislation, a higher minimum wage, wider social security benefits, a national health program and federal aid to education. , Senate Democrat will begin laying down their organization lines at a meeting December 31, when the present 80th congress meets to adjourn formally. Senator Barklcy of Kentucky, the vice president-elect, told reporters yesterday that all policy decisions will be delayed until then.

Vclasco, 36, was murdered in the Latin-American city section Sunday night by a man who stepped from the shadows and pumped five bullets into his body. He was buried here yesterday. His wife and 13-year-old daughter were with him when he was killed, but they could offer little help to police, who admitted they are without clues. All the widow could tell them was that Vclasco's assailant muttered words which might have- been "I've got you this" time" or "I 11 get you now." Vclasco was the only Spanish member of an Italian gambling syndicate here which reportedly does a $5,000,000 business'annual- ly.

There Seems to Be That U. S. Code Was Cracked Through Washington 'Leaks' By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst The congressional inquiry into he case of the "pumpkin papers" md other alleged Communist spy ctivities has evoked from Assist- int Sec-rotary of State John H ,'eurifoy the belief that foreign na- inns cracked a top-secret pre-war government code with the aid of Kipers sneaked out of the state department a decade ago. "What I regard as most serious ibciiit this whole thing x x x," he s quoted as telling the House Un- American Activities committee, 'is the fact that these documents vere taken out of the state depart- nont in 1937 or •;«), and to me that neans our codes were being read foreign nations during the whole period." Those two years, as World War 1 was boiling LID, were a period of global feverishnes;; and .stress. It > at times like this that nations ieek to probe the .secrets of one nothir. and spies are everywhere. Looking back in my note's I find hat at the end of September, '37 1 recorded: "If any further proof were i tual Europe is beset with wa: lungers, it could be found it- "•- and naval and possibly diplomatic secrets which other nations want." Moving on a - few months to March of 1£I3!1 my log shows that 1 recorded this: "The Pickwickian ;tSt boy who is making the public 'flesh creep at the moment seems to be the spy. I What with the ifjystorious American spying, tho grim treason trial in Moscow with its allegations of British and ' German plots against the Sovjel regime, and spies heads popping "'-jap and pup- ping off all over Eurone. there are enough thrills and chills to satisfy the most eager arm-chair seeker after red-blood adventure. "As a matter of fact there doesn't have to be an 'H' in the month to make spies in season. They always are with us, and the United States has its quota aloiu; with foreign countries. Naturally when the hounds of war begin to bay a! (lie moon, the spies start to scurry about.
