Troops were on Hie move, others \vcre put in readiness. Their mission was to fulfill President Truman's pledge that the Army will operate as many trains as |>ossible if sufficient repular engineers and trainmen do noljjct back to worn by 4 p. in. The Prc:-ident said the nrnietl forces also would protect strike- rtefying civilians ns well as hell in actual operations. Authoritative souroe said thai rvcn all-oil! Army efforts to operate the, roads probably could no get many of tlie trains running before Wednesday. The Army, for rcssons l>cs known lo itself, cloaked its prcpav ntions with almost as much secrecy as if it were getting ready for n wartime invasion. It would hard ly admit anything. Bui. Mr. Tru man told the objective in In speech to the nation last night.

May 2,i. <UP>— With thc controversy over the separate federal elections In Arkansas hogging the headlines, UlVlc has been said about the state political contests themselves shaping up behind thc scenes. It doesn't mean, however, that thc candidates don't, realize thnt (he first primary election is only two months away. Gov. Ben Lnncy apparently doesn't think he will imve loo muoh trouble in getting elected to n second term. He has not set up campaign headquarters, and he indicated that he nmy not. However, the governor isn't missing any chances to appear in public. He is making talks to gradu- | a ting classes and civic clubs all [ over the -stntc—as governor of Arkansas. This week-end he will attend thc annual conference of governors in Oklahoma City. James M. Malone. former conn-1 ty judge from Lonukc and considered by many as Lnncy's principal opponent, told reporters he is going to win. From his conversation, it is obvious that he will use arguments, when !irj starts his active campaign, for bet.- tc r hi g h way s a n d fli o re i noncy f o r the schools.

(UP) — Senate Democratic Leader Albcn W. Barkley. Ky., said he expected President Truman to submit definite legislation Ui thc Joint session of Con- . grcss today. j He would not .say what these mea| sures would be. but Congress expected the President to request penalties for strikes against thc government. Prompt congressional approval was a BtroiiR possibility. Barkley visited the White House unannounced to discuss arrangements for (he joint session which Mr. Truman wilt address at 4 pan . E.S.T. He told newsmen he expected Mr. Triminn to make a comparatively brief speech and to propose specific legislation. Barkley said lie did not know whether Mr. Truiniu would touch on the coal situation In his talk. Thc President scheduled his appearance before an extraordinary Joint session of Congress for the deadline set last night for striking railroad workers to return voluntarily to the government -seized rail system. Today's speech will be broadcast by all major networks. Informed congressional snnrrrs i-xpectert Mr. Trumnn to ask for legislation making U a criminal offense to strike against the government—meaning the government-seized properties such as the railroads and soft coal mines. Mr. Barkley asked both liouses of Congress to "keep themselves in position to promptly consider thc President's recommendations, whatever they may be." It was considered likely, in View ot the extreme emergency created bv thc rail' tlc-itp, that'eongreRSibrtKl leaders would try to rush passaqe of whatever thc President wants. They probably will seek unanimous consent to skip the customary parliamentary delays. Termed Government Challenge Tlic chances of a speed-up program were enhanced by congressional reaction to Mr. Truman's fighting speech last night and a widespread feeling that the rail tie- up In the face of federal seizure challenges the government's sovereignty. Democrats and , Republicans in both houses of Congress hailed Ihe President's speech..Sonic of thc Senate's staunches! defenders of ni ganized labor's right lo strike scenu willing to make an exception wh? a challenge to the goveriunent itself is involved: Sen.

May 2r,. (I!.! 1 .) — President Tnimnn. plainly angered over the railroad strike, last night directed a slinging indictment sil the Inhor lenders responsible for the strike which he said 'Vim completely .stifle our economy and ultimately destroy our counlry." Seldom, If ever, has a president delivered such a severe Indictment of labor leaders. Sumninriidng the effects of the worst transportation tie-up in tlie nation's history, President Truman said: Hundreds of factories are shutting down for lack of fuel and raw materials; the food distribution system faces chaos. Thc nation faces the prospect of darkened .street:;, dwindling food ^supplies, .shattered transportation facilities, enforced idleness of millions of workers.
