Ives Hits Plan For Changes In T-H Labor Law i - • p ',''•• Republican Committee Blamed -For Partisan MpyeJBy New- Yorker By 3IABVIX.L.. i WASHINGTON — (/P).'— .Senator Ives of New York put fellow Republicans on notice' today -he opposes «ome of the changes .they - plan in the Taft-Hartley Act.- -. ..-.., - ' Ives, who: played' a -key: role 'in •writing -the 1947 labor law, said a report by th« Senate-House -"watchdog" committee urging about nine amendments Is an. "obviously partisan," document. The chairman of tha-GOP-controlled. group, Senator 2aU (R-Mlnn) said a ' half dozen of the proposed changes are "fairly Important." Approved, By Taft, ' Among the seven Republicans Toting for the plan were Senator Taft of. Ohio and Rep. Hartley -'of New Jersey, co-authors of -'the net. But Ives split sharply with the other committee. members. Hc'told a news conference yestlerday: -. ' VI am not going -along .with . the report; partly because it is obviously a partisan report and , partly' because I ' don't agree with some of the things in it." He added: . '1 feel very -definitely : that industrial and labor relations, should noi be. involved in partisan controversy." . ... . . . The New Yorker said, however, that he favors ..one committee proposal—that the .Taft-Hartley provision requiring top labor officials to take non- Communist oaths be broadened -to include management representatives. Backs Red Ban . . Ives originally opposed the non- Communist provision. But., he said he backs It now because "it has helped labor organizations to : clean up Communist control." 'As lor the other side of the industrial fence, he said: "Some .management, if not under Communist control, at least is. doing or trying to do a lot of business (Continued on Page 5.

Zoo Director Marlin Perkins said Bushman was the chief attraction for 3.250,000 persons who visited the park's animal exhibits this year. His admirers are kept, several feet Irom the thick. bars of his cage. . , The huge "gorilla is friendly, Per- IJns says, but. because of his tremendous strength "we just can't cake any chances with him'." ' " Nevertheless, Perkins often feeds Bushman "by. hand — passing him grapes one at a time," or handing hta celery stalks. . Captured as an' Infant In the Prench Cameroons in 1930. Bushman has grown to the largest stature of any gorilla' in captivity. He has spells of agile energy, when he leaps around his cage and swings on suspended truck tires. He usually obeys commands given by Perkins. Bushman is on a diet His 22 pounds' of daily fare do not include much fattening food. He drinks three quarts of -milk a day and eats fresh fruits and vegetables and •whole wheat raisin -bread. Dutch Move Cannot Cure The Trouble Asiatic People See ': Military Action In Indonesia As Proof ~ Of ^'Imperialistic" Program By Holland By, DcWITT MACKENZIE 'AP'-Foreign'Affairs Analyst The, Dutch action'-.• against the Indonesian republic is-.-creating another 1 dangerous crisis 'in an Orient already seething with 'Unrest. Asiatic, peoples 1 are -bound-to -construe this as a. further demonstration' of ..-.the.- western, 'imperialism against, which many of."them are in revolt. We have, striking, .evidence of this interpretation in a statement by Par-.dit Jawaharlal Nehru, Prime Minister of India, • • i . Nehru tolfl the Indian Nation- . -al Congress Parts; that Dutch military victories never will stop the Indonesian strujrple for independence. He was applaud-- cd when he declared that no European power lias any right to wage an aRgrcssive. action in Asia. And he added that India's' freedom from British rule means the.end of all imperial ism and colonialism in the Orient. ' - Tha^t' is the view of-one of the most powerful .leaders of India's 300,00(3,000 newly freed people. And It 'would be difficult to combat the thesis that irrjp'erialism is indeed on Its way 'out. In the" Par East. Britain tacitly .recognized this when she granted independence-to India, Pakistan, and Burma. However, while the Indonesian development is unfortunate, we shall do well not to'be.hasty in •our judgment. It ts easy to . register our firm belief in the inherent right 'of any people to full independence. We must note that the Dutch admit the rtKht °' Indonesia to. Independence but are trying- to create a commonwealth of nations of •which the Indonesian republic would lie iv part. . . But what rights. If any, has Holland' in this question of Independence?

Announce Plan For Capital To Exclude Soviet Way Is Left Open For Russia To Take Part In City Government BERLIN—(/P)—The United States,' Britain and Prance announced today a three power government for Berlin without Russian partici- .pation. " • -. The French commandant, .Gen. Jean Ganeval, read a three-power statement saying: "If Soviet authorities either now or at some future date, decide to abide. by the agreement to which the' four powers are .committed, the quadripartite - administration of Berlin can be resumed. - Red Obstruction Cited ' -"During their abstention the three western allies will -exercise 'the powers .of the Allied Komandatura although realizing that owing to t-he Soviet obstruction it will only be possible for them to carry out their administration Jn the western sectors for the present." - The western commandants re- called'that the'Russians disrupted four' power government by withdrawing from the Kommandatura last July 1; They said .the Kom- mandatura" can only be' altered or abdicated by agreement of all the governments which set it up."

This would mean, colleaguesj«said, that so far as, the Senate is concerned President Truman again will find' opposing many o£ - his proposals the same man 'who clashed bitterly with him In the past over such issues as price controls and labor legislation. Taft's grip on the policy making post seemed unlikely to be retained, however, without some kind of compromise with self-tabbed liberals who have been demanding a greater voice in charting the party's course.- Senator' Ives of. New York, long time supporter of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, predicted at a news Conference yesterday that a dozen senators *from' .the northeast, the Pacific Coast "and 'a few'from'the interior". will make their weight felt In party caucus.' .' '. He said they represent a forward-looking viewpoint, and implied that those who have been running the. Republican Senate show have views which are "a little more conservative." However, Ives himself admitted that if the insurgents can muster only 12 or so of the 42 Republican votes in the new. Senate they haven't much, chance of upsetting the leadership applecart. "Best'-bet at the moment was that the veterans in the driver's seat will enlarge the policy' committee and offer the insurgents places on it.

Most transportation lines were running on time, or nearly so, and the metropolitan area's three major airports wore in operation again. The snow, which fell here for hours, had turned to deep slush in many places—principally heavily- traveled thoroughfares—nr.d a | freeze threatened to impede the| work-of 20,000 snow removers.

DIXON WASHINGTON, (INS)—For more than three months, this correspondent hns been conducting a quiet probe into the security of this capital of'the United States of America. • • The investigation has concerned several distinct phases—involving physical,' operational defense, civilian defense, atomic energy and intelligence security. With the possible exception of the final phase, intelligence, the information it produced was far from comforting. In fact, particularly for one who makes his home in Washington, it was fris-tening, Presented somewhat dogmatically, for the 'sake of brevity, these were the conclusions drawn from the investigation: The physical defense of Washington- is being 'planned by four separate armed force . organizations. The planners are men of vast experience and.expert ability, and all are fully aware of the danger of the capital should-the cold war suddenly get hot. Nevertheless—despite , unification, the lack of a master plan which could weld all luiits Into a quickly effective, defense force, plus the seeming.inadequacy of liaison between units, leaves the impression that a sneak, blow struck at the capital would result in at least temporary-military chaos . . . Second, civilian def-snse now Is being revived on a nationwide scale, Nevertheless — practically speak- ir.g, little lias been done locally on civil defense plans, with the result that uncontrolled mass hysteria probab'.y would cause far more casualties, In event of a real' or imagined enemy attack, than the actual explosive incident which precipitated the crisis . . .

Stalin Marks 69th Birthday, Stories Per sis t He Is Sick By GLENN WILLIAMS LONDON—(/P)—Prime Minister Joseph Vassarionovich Stalin of the Soviet Union, G9 today, has reached an age when he must think of pass- tokens accepted by.

He rose to prominence during the 1930 purges, but lias stopped the practice of arresting everybody who s gossiped about.
