PAGE & GOP Expenses Top Democrats in County Republicans Show $264 Mo re Spent Expenses of the Allegheny County Republican Committee for the re raf rAmary an? SPecial lections ran $264 more than those of the County Democratic Committee from Dec. 8. 1945 to June 10, 1946. Expense accounts turned in to the County Elections Board differed somewhat in their breakdown The Republicans turned in their expenses and receipts for the two elections, while the Democrats filed one report on their primary expenses and another on their financial affairs of the six-month period. Democratic expenses and donations for the special election were included in the latter amount. Individual Gifts The Republican committee showed total expenses of $25,989, against the DemocratsS 25,724. Receipts for the Republicans were $30,295. Democratic receipts for the six months were only $10,031, but they had $14,576 on hand on December 8. Most of the Republican receipts came from private individuals as shown by the fact that the Committee received 15 donations of more than $500, while only Mayor David L. Lawrence and Clerk , of Courts Dr. John J. McLean handed the Democrats $500 or more. Biggest item on the Democrats' receipt list was the S5000 turned in by the Jefferson Day Celebration Committee. Biggest expense item for both parties was for watchers at the polls. The Republicans spent $15.- 520, of which $290 was turned back to the Party, while the Democrats laid out only $7o00, including $950 turned back. Printers' Bills Unpaid Printers came out on the short end, apparently. The Democrats listed S2323 in unpaid printing bills, the Republicans $1133 Other big expenses noted were S158G for a Republican dinner at the William Penn Hotel and a contribution of $1000 on Jan. 8 to the Democratic State Committee. Leading the list of contributors to the Republican campaign were: Constance P. Mellon, $1500; Sarah M. Scaife, $1500; R. K. Mellon, $1500; W. L. Mellon, $1500; A. M. Scaife, $1500; James F. Malone Jr., $1000; W. C. Robinson, $1000; A. W. Robinson, $1000 ; and Thruston Wright. J. F. Walton, H. E. Lewis, S. S. Marshall, W. L. Jones Jr., B. F. Jones III and W. J Creigh-ton, each $500. Borough Statements Millvale Borough Democrats spent $581 for the primary, but their receipts totaled $723. Du-quesne Democrats spent $320, just about what they received from donors. Heading the list of candidates who filed expense accounts yesterday was Isabella J. Jones, defeated for the Republican nomination for Congress in the 29th District. Her campaign receipts came to $3290, her expenses $3003 but an unpaid printing bill for $680 will create a deficit. William L. Shaffer, runner-up in the race for Democratic nomination to the State Assembly from the 10th District, showed expenses of $522. Expenses of Harry J. Davenport, Democratic nominee for Congress in the 29th District, came to $502. $390 Gets Few Votes John A. Capone, who polled the lowest vote total in the Republican battle for nomination to the State Assembly from the 5th District, spent $390. In losing the Republican nomination for State Senator from the 44th District, Robert J. Strathearn spent $185. His successful opponent, State Senator John M. Walker, spent less than $100. Others who spent less than $100 were : Elmer J. Holland, Democratic nominee for State Senate, 38th District; Icnatius J. Pillart, Republican nominee for Congress, 33rd District; Donald F. Davison, Republican nominee for Assembly, 10th District; J. P. Moran, Democratic nominee for Assembly, 10th District; Anthony G. Thieret, defeated for Democratic nomination to Assembly, 6th District.

Hotel Blast Toll 7 Dead, 41 Hurt Dallas Explosion Releases Ammonia Gas DALLAS, Tex., June 22 (UP) The Fire Department called in experts today to find the cause of an explosion that shook the five-million-dollar Baker Hotel and killed seven persons in the nation's third major hotel tragedy within a month. The explosion occurred in the basement of the 750-room building Silver Price Boost Voted by Senators Senate-House Battle On Move Hinted WASHINGTON". June 22 (UP) A bitter fight between silver state and Eastern congressmen was brewing today over a Senate proposal to boost the Treasury' buying and selling price of silver from 71.11 to 90.3 cents per ounce. Until the controversy is settled, the present shortage of silver for yc J V ,. - "" i industrial use is expected to grow tem. Deadly ammonia gas filled the basement, rising to the floors above. 41 Injured Hotel officials said 41 employes were injured. No guests w-ere injured even slightly, they said. The explosion crumbled basement walls. Police Lt. L. T. Spencer believed there was one body still under the rubble. Twenty-man fire department squads working to clear the basement said it would take 24 to 48 hours to determine whether all the bodies had been recovered. Saves 97 Charles Hodge, a Negro in charge of the sub-basement washroom, helped save 97 laundry workers, mostly women. He threw wet sheets over their heads and shouted to them to keep low to avoid the ammonia fumes. Crawling through the debris, he led them to safety. The blast was the worst hotel worse. Treasury sales of industrial silver halted last December and cannot resume until the new legislation is passed. In the meantime, silver producers are withholding their stocks until a new price is set. Industries Affected The photography and photo-engraving industries already have been affected by the shortage, and the manufacture of electrical contact points for auto engines is threatened seriously. The Congressional fight is expected to break out openly next w;eek when Senate-House conferees meet to resolve differences on the $1,606,067,840 Treasury Appropriation Bill for 1947. It was to this measure that the Senate tacked the Silver amendment yesterday. At issue were the conflicting opinions of silver-state and industrial state congressmen as to the price of silver. The Westerners want it as high as possible for the House, Senate Vote Funds of 13 Billions Push Appropriations For 1947 Fiscal Year WASHINGTON, June 22 (UP) Racing against a June 30 deadline, the Senate and House in one day approved four fiscal 1947 appropria tion bills totaling $13,250,090,683, in cluding record peace-time funds for the Army and Navy. Largest single bill was the House-approverd $7,091,034,700 measure to maintain an Army averaging 1,279,-000 men during th next fiscal year. The Army appropriation also includes 375 million dollars for peacetime atomic energy research, 281 million dollars for other scientific research and 350 million dollars to help feed starving peoples in occupied areas. Highest in Peacetime Although the Army appropriation is only about one-tenth of the record 1942 wartime appropriation, it is by far the highest peacetime military appropriation in U. S. history. The second largest appropriation approved by the Senate late yesterday a record peacetime $4,100,000,000 Navy bill. It provides for the maintenance of a fleet of 1045 combat ships and a force of 558,000 officers and men. Senators also " passed legislation to give the Treasury and Postoffice Departments $1,606,000,000 and the State, Justice and Commerce De partments and Federal judiciary $453,055,983 for the next fiscal year, To Adjust Differences All three bills passed by the Senate have been approved by the House. But they now go back to the House for adjustment of dif fering amendments. Both the Army and Navy bills carry no-strike amendments. The House attached a rider providing that no Army funds could be used to pay War Department employes who strike against the Government, or who belong to unions asserting the right to strike against the Government. The Senate approved a similar provision in the Navy bill and added a penalty of one year's imprisonment and $1000 fine for those who did strike. Navy Bill Cut The Senate cut $39,718,000 from the House version of the Navy bill before sending it back for consideration of amendments. As approved by the Senate the State-Justice-Commerce bill provided $131,139,523 for the State Department: $99,952,250 for Justice; $205,906,720 for Commerce and $16,057,490 for the Federal judiciary. SHOW SHOPS A Non-Expert Sees the Fight Film And Dares to Express an Opinion By K A SPAR MOXAIIAN There wasn't a boxing expert in the gang when at yesterday noon we gathered to see a private showing of the Louis-Conn fight picture. We were "pleasantly surprised" to quote one of the non-experts who voiced the consensus of the bunch in vhe projection room. We found it a better fight than we .iad anticipated after reading the Vu-r v accounts of the Yankee Stadium set-to. Not really a good fight, but hardly the "fiasco" i t' s been called. As I see it the experts over-wrote the fight before it took place and jnder - wrote it afterwards You can take that for what it's worth, re- Mr. Monahan membering I'm no expert. I can only report on what I saw and I'm still naive enough to believe that the camera never lies. Assuming the camera is telling the truth, I saw a nervous, "tightly drawn Billy Conn enter the ring and an impassive sphinx-faced Joe Louis shuffle out to meet him at the start of the bout. Joe was relaxed; Billy wasn't. From then on it was Joe stalking Billy as the latter retreated. I've seen Billy a few times in action and this time he seemed slower and lacking the surefooted grace that he had exhibited before. But several times he really got in there and threw some leather. In one round, the fourth I think, he took a terrific punch but came back with a few of his own. Seemed to have some steam in 'em, too, but in the broadcast and in the following day's reports there was nothing to indicate he was the least bit aggressive. As late as the seventh round and the forepart of the eighth he displayed in fitful flashes he had not left all of his fighting heart in the training camp. Or so it seemed to this non-expert. Of course, as everybody knows by now, he wasn't hurting Joe. But he v asn't the completely feckless ana helpless fellow we expected to see. Certainly he wasnt the poltroon we had been led to believe. Of course there was the explosive eighth round when the end came so swiftly and unexpectedly. A truck horse would have been knocked down and out by any of three awful blows, let alone a mere 182-pound guy outweighed by 25 pounds of fighting fury. You be the one to go around babbling as so many are doing, "why I might aS well have been in there with Louis." Not me. When Joe is chopping down some foolhardy lad, I get at least 20 feet away from the radio. Admittedly the film reveals that Conn was completely outclassed, but also it certainly reveals he was in there trying against staggering odds. In short, despite scurrilous and lying intimations to the contrary, he can walk the streets of his hometown with his head up. If you see the film I think you'll agree. It's showing at the Warner and on the same screen are Joan Fontaine and Mark Stevens as a married pair who have troubles. Troubles? Hell they don't have to face J. Louis!

Easterners want to keep the price down for the jewelry, photographic and other silver-using industries Passed by 15 Senators A sharp fight had been expected on the Senate floor over the pro posal to amend the House bill to raise the Treasury silver sale price from 71.11 cents to 90.3 cents. But to the surprise of all concerned there were only 15 senators on the floor at the time the change went through without a dissenting vote The senate action tossed the issue into conference, where Eastern ers will fight for the House version to authorize resumption of Treasury sales at 71.11 cents. The Senate amendment provides that the 90.3 cent price for buying and selling shall prevail until June 30. 1948. After that time the price will be "not less than the legal monetary value (of silver) per fine troy ounce" an apparent invitation to Congress to raise it again later in separate legislation. Senate Votes Extension Of War Powers Act WASHINGTON (UP) The Sen ate last night passed and sent to the White House a bill extending sections of the Second War Powers Act for varying periods of from nine months to one year.

Vice President & Secretary Department appropriation bill power for Mr. Byrnes to fire any State Department employe he chooses without regard for Civil Service rules protecting Government em ployes against dismissal, except for proven cause. The amendment, which the House undoubtedly will accept, would let such employes exercise their Civil Service rights to claim a job in any other Government agency. Rules Bar Ousters Mr. Russell said the amendment was sponsored by the Senate Appropriations Committee after hearing testimony that the State Department was helpless to rid its rolls of suspected "fellow travelers" under Civil Service rules. "They could build up a strong case of suspicion but not one which would stand up before a Civil Service Commission hearing," Mr. Russell said. "So, we decided to give Byrnes extraordinary powers to cope with the situation. I am confident that there will be a thorough huosecleaning of fellow travelers in the State Department with this new power." Votes Information Fund Mr. Russell conceded that the suspected "fellow travelers" would I undoubtedly find jobs in other Government agencies. But, he said, "They won't be in a place where they could influence our foreign af fairs." The Senate voted to allow the State Department $19,284,778 for its International Information Service. The House, after talks of suspected Communism in the depart ment, had allowed a flat 10 million dollars. The Senate restored $9,-284,778 intended to be used in shortwave overseas broadcasts. But it wrote into its report: "It is the feeling of the committee that a very searching check should be made of all personnel having anything to do with the program."
