Putnam, Putnam, whose own resignation akes him out of government in a ew days, turned the situation over Chairman Charles C. Killingsworth and three other public mcm- ers of the WSB. They were em- lowered to carry on wiige controls. Instead of the WSB with equal lumbers of members representing he public, Industry and labor, {lllingsworth end his three public nembers are lo administer wage ontiolt. They asked the labor aembcrj to stand by for "advice n handling future cases, II seemed probable that,'~ al- hough Pulnam held out hope for wooing industry men back to posts the wage board, pay curbs 1" lie five weeks until Hie new Re- >ubllcan administration coincs In- power will be handled by {Illlngssvorlh's wholly governmen- al selup, without formal labor nd Industry help. Coal Caw Wa> Cause Tlie controversy leading. U> this situation was set off by Triiman's lamlllng of a coal miners' pay Increase. He approved all of the ntners' negotiated raise after the WSB had approved only part of H. The WSB's industry members resigned, accusing the President of yielding to/political expediency. Killlngsworlh seemed likely to .ackle a backlog of 13,000 pending union - employer agreements by giving broader delegations of power to the WSB's stnff. Well over million workers are believed to ! Involved In the cases. Both Truman and I'uinani have I assured CIO President Walter Reuther they will help speed action on the pending cases. Reuther has suggested broader policy authorizations lo the WSB's staff on wages, fringe benefits and severance pay provisions as steps to help clear away the backlog. These matters In the past have required full board action. Putnam may authorize' such wider nlllhority /or the nnaly.sls of wage cases before he steps out In a day or two. Presumably he would hold them to over-all limits of existing wage stabilization policies as Putnam has strongly expressed himself against lifting wage ceilings. • • , CASABLANCA, Farnen Morocco, Wl—French authorities today threw eight more Communists, including Ihree Soviet citizens, out of this troubled North African proteclor- nte. This brought to 20 the number of Communist expelled from Morocco by France ns a result of the bloody uprising a week ago. Frenchmen here meanwhile expressed belief that the stern measures being taken to put down nationalism will guarantee Morocco years of peace. Moroccan nationalists, like those In Tunis, are fighting to win independence from the French. Police measures consist In seizing almost every member of the Independence party called Istlqlul, every Communist .Moroccan and French, and Nationalist - Inclined members of the Genera] Trade Confederation. In Casablanca alone nearly 1,000 persons have been arrested.

Perhaps significantly, he listed our military advisory represents- Ive from Formosa" as one of the fficers with whom he had a con- erence. Reporting on the American orces In Korea, Eisenhower said: 'It Is the most splendidly clothed cared-for army that I think we inve ever put In the field . nd I want to report right now hat they are doing as fine a Job as you people could possibly risk.' However, he noted 'a contrns jctwecn this American Army ant lie ones that went to Europe in World Wars I and II.

He said he had seen some othe United Nations units as well, .an said. "Their combat records worthy of their countries' proud cst traditions."

'Hie council program today In- luded a public meeting reserved lalnly for welcoming speeches, fol- owed by a business sesilon behind losed doors into In the afternoon. NATO military leaders planned i advise the ministers to make heir decision on the construction rogram at this meeting and not vait until they get together again March or April. A high-placed American Informant said that, as a concession, the rlilltary Committee ,hRd trimmed Is original construction estimate rom 453 million dollars to the new arget of 428 millions. The program calls for the build- hg of between 31 and 35 airbases, well as. naval construction and other military installations. The airbuses, however, are hte ma]ov tern. Predicting stiff opposition from some countries, an American source said: "Some ministers want to know first how much money will be spent in (heir countries before they will be willing to chip in. The United Slates will try to get the building program passed even against this opposition.". British Lord Ismay, the NATO secretary general, has expressed doubt that the plans "will be approved because some countries may object to heavy new expenditures. The ministers will hear reports l the progress of the .European defense buildup, but they probably will be somewhat less rosy than those handed- -put yesterday to newsmen by NATO officials.

Main BlythevilU Traffic Charge Follows Collision ELECTORAL (Continued from Pag« 1) tern comes Jan. ft when Con^ meets to record the results, with the presiding officer o! the Senate tolling off the electors's votes. Many In Congress and out con stder the present electoral system an outmoded relic. Thia year'; electors themselves are dividci over whether it is archaic, o should be guarded against an; new-fangled chances. Some believe the college Ghoul be discarded nnrt presidents electd by popular voters. Others favo retaining the present system b\i changing It to permit a split c election votes within stales. At present, one candidate gets all a state's electoral votes even tf he wins the slate by just a handful of popular votes. The proposed change would work like this: If a state has 10 electors, and the popular vole was 600,000 to 400,000, one candidate would get 6, the cihcr 4 electoral votes. Both changes would require revision o( the Constitution, a complex process. An Associated Press spot sampling of electors in several states showed that among 38 who w : ould be quoted, 24 favored a change of Rome sort, 13 wanted to retain the college as it Is, and 2 recommended a study. The majority of those favoring R change recommended election by popular vole. Tht Rev. J, W.
