TRUMAN (Continued from Page 1) dimunltion of our tolerance, each new act of enforced conformity, each idle accusation, each demonstration of hysteria — each new restrictive law-Is one more sign that we can lose the battle against "We must renew our confidence In one another, our tolerance, our sense of being neighbors, fellow cliizens. We must take our stand on the Bill of Rights. The Inqulsl tion, the star chamber, have m Place In a free society " Beamed by radio throughout the world, Truman's message told all mankind that this country — because of Russia's refusal to agree o a formula guaranteeing the outlawing of atomic (weapons — i s being hurried forward in atomic discoveries toward "yet unforsee- able peaks of destructive power." "We have developed atomic, weapons with many times the explosive force of (he early models " he said, "and we have produced them in substantial quantities " He continued : "The war of the future, would be one In which man could extinguish millions of lives at one blow, demolish the great cities of the world, wipe out the cultural achievements of the past ^- and destroy the very .structure of a civilization that has been slowly and painfully built up through hundreds of generations. "Such a war Is not n possible policy for rational men. We know this, but we dare not assume that others would not yield to the temp- :ation science is now placing In lieir hands. 'With that in mind, there Is something I would say, to staliir You claim belief In Lenin's pro- Dhecy that one stage In the development of Communist society would bs war between your world and ours. But Lenin was a p re atomic man, who viewed society and history with pre-atomic eyes. Something profound has happened since he wrote. War has changed ts shape and its dimension. It can- rot now be a 'stage' In the development of anything save ruin for your regime and your homeland." Wished Jfce Success Truman said he is resuming 'most gladly" his place as a private citizen and he spoke of the •friendly and understanding col- aboration" he has had from Elsen- lower and his associates in work- ng for an orderly-changeover of administrations. 'The President-elect," Truman declared, "Is about to lake up the grealest burdens, the most compelling responsibilities, given to any man. And I, with you and all Americans, wish for him all possible success in undertaking the asks that will so soon be his." As for his administration, Truman said: 'At the very least, a total war has been averted, each day up to his hour. And at the most, we may already have succeeded In stabllshln? conditions which can ecp that kind of war from hap- can see."

Dota compiled by ht National Industrial Conference Board, Father Visits Grave of Child He Turned Over to Friends FILIBUSTER (Continued from Page 1) allowed fo call a halt to debate Sen. Jenner (R-Ind) broke into the argument yesterday to' say that a resolution to make it easier to choke off a . filibuster would be the first business of the Senate Rules Committee, which he Is to head. He said he has prepared a reso- ution that would permit debate to be-halted by the votes of two- thirds of the senators present and voting. He will introduce this as soon as possible, Jenner said. Such a change would permit as few as 33 senators to put a limit on debate assuming that only a bare quorum of 49 were present In practice, however, the number would be far greater since most senators would be on hand In case of such a test. Taft said he objected to the method being employed In the present test. He said the civil rights backers should wait until later In the session. Taft also told the senate he personally thinks the rules should be liberalized so that filibusters could be halted by the votes, of two- thirds of Ihe senators voting, With the Courts CIRCUIT (Civil Division) W.
