(AP) Congress, not the president, will settle arguments in the military's official family. This is made plain in the powerful congressional support given to demands for a bigger air force despite the insistence of Secretary of Defense Forrestal, backed by President Truman, that the army and navy should be expanded equally. kast year's unification law which set up Forrestal's defense department provided that if any one of the three service secretaries army, navy or air disagreed with Forrestal the dispute could be appealed to the White House. But congress seems to have taken the ball. The immediate issue is the size of the air force. The air arm proposed at the close of the war that the peacetime organization be 70 groups of combat planes. But the White House and budget bureau decided that economy demands left money enough to support only 55 grotfps. The air force bowed to the decision for two years, but did not recede from its ultimate goal of 70 groups. Forrestal, presenting the overall military budget to congress this spring, proposed 55 groups and recommended that the air force's manpower be set at 362,000. Later he agreed to a manpower expansion to 400,000 but held fast to the 55-group force plan. Secretary for Air Symington, in a recent appearance before the house armed services committee, headed by Chairman Andrews (R., N.Y.), was asked if a 70-group force was -needed. He answered yes. The house thereupon voted an amendment to the pending defense appropriation bill which would provide for a 70-group force. Yesterday Forrestal went to the senate armed services committee, headed by Chairman Gurney (R., S.D.). He proposed what amounted to a compromise a $46,000,000,000 three-year program for defense, with the keynote on air power. He still disagreed with the 70- group idea and proposed-instead 66 groups., NOTICE- Do Not Trade in your present car on either o New or Used Car until you get our CASH OFFER Tony's Used Cars Phone Reno 5307 450 SOUTH VIRGINIA STREET 351 N.

UP) China today gave up the old Communist capital, Yenan, after little more than a year of occupation. The withdrawal caught the nation by surprise. The government explained that it pulled out of the famous old cave city in north Shensi province to place its troops more favorably. It anticipates an onslaught of Red Gen. Peng Tehhuai, who has been threatening to carve a gateway into Szechuan province. Shensi Delegate Sung Ming-yuan told the national assembly the loss of Yenan was unexpected 'but inevitable. Politically, the capture of Yenan was a good move. But militarily it was a great blunder it exposed the rest of Shensi to the Reds." Abandonment of Yenan underscored the gravity of the government's position in the northwest. It also gave credence to reports that both the governor of Shensi province and the northwest military commander, Gen. Hu Tsung-nan, had been removed. NEW AMBASSADOR BUENOS AIRES, April 22.

UP) Pickets patrolled the gates of the Seattle plant of Boeing Airplane company early today, launching a strike of 13,800 employes. The strike followed failure of federal conciliators to bring about a meeting between the Aeronautical Mechanics union (Ind) and company representatives.

UP) The air force has chosen titles for its "airmen" to distinguish them from army enlisted personnel. The new ratings would be authorized under pending legislation. For warrant officers there would be four grades chief airman and senior airman, 1st, 2nd or 3rd class. A chief airman would receive pay equivalent to that of a major. It would range down to a 2nd lieutenant's pay for senior airman, 3rd class. Here is how the air force pro poses to rename the grades for enlisted men: master sergeant becomes senior air sergeant; technical sergeant, air sergeant, 1st class; staff sergeant, air sergeant; sergeant, airman 1st class; corporal, airman 2nd class; private 1st class, airman 3rd class; private, airman 4th class. British Airways Passengers Lost LARGS, Scotland, April 22. UP) Search parties combed the fog-shrouded Ayrshire moors today for passengers and crew of a British European airways plane which crash-landed and burned on a lonely hillside last night. The report, which the airline announced is thus far unconfirmed, said one of the 20 persons in the plane was killed. "There are no serious injuries" among the survivors, a BE A official said. "Some of the passengers arrived at Kilbirnie (near here) early today. But others still are missing and the search goes on." Worlds G31 if' r""Tr- -iivVi.

(JP) A railway ticket clerk who dreamed of building and operating a $28,-000,000 railroad said today he was ready to go back to his old job at the Pennsylvania railroad's station on Thirtieth street in Philadelphia. A dream of a super-modern rail system between Atlanta and Savannah, Ga., fell flat for E. T. Mitchell when witnesses favorable to his project failed to appear at an interstate commerce commission hearing yesterday. On hand, however, were representatives of nine railroads, bus lines and freight companies who opposed the rail clerk's application to build the super-duper line. OH!

Joyce, president of the Distilled Spirits institute, today criticized measures aimed at curbing or banning liquor advertising as discriminatory and "class legislation." , . " In a statement prepared for the senate commerce committee Joyce said: "If it is proper to place federal restrictions upon the advertising of distilled spirits it will only be a short time when you will be requested to enact legislation which will permit the censorship of editorial and news articles in a like manner." The committee is considering two measures to restrict the scope of liquor advertisements introduced by Senators Reed (R-Kas) and Edwin C. Johnson (D-Colo). A third bill, introduced by Senator Capper (R-Kas), would, in effect, ban such advertising entirely.
