Three persons in the Broadway Mansions said they saw a Nationalist machine gunner firing 'torn the red-cross marked entrance to the Shanghai General Hospital on the north bank of the creek at the Honan Bridge. City Is Relieved After the white ring was raised at the postoftice, occupants tried, unsuccessfully to call the attention of the gunner to the flag. The whole city breathed a sigh of relief for the thousands of Chinese civilians on the Bund and north of Soochow Creek who had been trapped since early yesterday. They had endured all sorts of fire. The United States and British consulates were trying to intercede with both sides for a ceasefire order to enable trapped foreigners and other non combatants to escape from the embankment building. One report said that foreign anc Chinese residents of the building had offered Chinese Nationalists soldiers money to evacuate the | building and eliminate it as a prime target. The soldiers replied f that if they would be shot by garrison troops and if they stayed they would be shot by Red troops. Held Bridge 24 Hours Tor almost 24 hours small Nationalist forces had kept the Reds away from the bridges. Peking Road was a no-man's land near the Bund. So was the lower part of the Bund where it runs into Garden Bridge, one of the four key ry ^'rs undr-,t«*".ji; J nrui}b,r assault. The U.

These include the 16-story Broadway Mansions, the seven- story Embankment Building, the Post Office, the British and Soviet Consulates. Trapped in these buildings were hundreds of foreigners—Americans, British, Portugese, Netherlander, French—and many Chinese. Rifle and machine gun fire splattered against some of the structures. A few bullets punctured them. Two bullets lauded in U. S. Consulate General John Cabot's bedroom in the Glenline Building. Briton Wounded But so far the only known foreign casualty was a British subject, R. P. Verenberg, wounded in street near the American consulate. All Americans, as far as Cabot * could learn, were safe. The Nationalist stand was incredible. Sooner or later they were certain to be flanked from upstream. Behind these Nationalists, the garrison evacuation con tinner northward from Hongkew. FJ m the heart of Shanghai, the northern horizon was aflame las night. The Nationalists blew up oil gasoline and ammunition dumps. When they blew up supplies Kiangwan military airfield midway between Shanghai and Woosung, It became obvious they had no thought of a last stand.

The original bill was pronounced dead by Rep. Kilday (D-Tex) after he had failed to get It past the House. Kilday led the floor fight for the measure. But Vinson, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, told reporters: "Never mind what le said. We'll bring It back right iway and I think we'll bring back a good bill." Vinson said that In Its new form the bill will carry a little less money for the generals that the original proposal did, and also will offer n small raise for the recruits. Otherwise, he said, It will be about the same. 'I haven't even begun to fight yet," he added. First of all, Vinson said, he wll call in a number o! young Worli War II veterans who helped send the bill back to Vinson's committee battered and torn, on a 227-163 vote Tuesday. Among the ex-GI's whose opinions will be Rep. Button <D-Tennl — who led the attack on the earlier bill—and Rep. Boiling (D-Mo). First Defeat Tuesday's vote marked the first time In Vinson's 16 years as House committee chairman that he had ever seen the House throw committee bill back, at him. Of the thousands of bills which have rolled out of his committees over the years, Vinson said, only two were amended over his opposition. One was the pay. bill. It would luivi/i'uolisliu/(atnlij ,.ilc\>. l.K•-•:• fOl enlisted men six months after enactment. Vinson said the new one probably will provide for continuing them for each man through his current enlistment. An amendment by Carroll to do substantially this vfls voted in by the House before he bill was slapped down Tuesday. The original bill would not have hanged the present J75-monthly jay for the bottom enlisted grade —the Army's recruits and Navy's boots." In the new bill it, may be ippcd to JBO. The next grade, which would have received $82.50 under .he old bill, may be boosled to $84 or so under the new one, Vinson said. But p.l the other end of the line, 2 added, there will be some pruning. Well start at the top and work down," Vinson said. Court to Convene In Osceola to Hear Civil Cases By Charles Molony WASHINGTON, May 26. (,T)_ The Hoover Commission toda> wound up two years of work with an urgent appeal to Congress lo give President Truman the fullest possible power to reorganize the government. "W cannot afford to lose this op|x>rtunlty to put the operation of the federal government on a sound and efficient basis, 1 ' the 12- man bl-parlisan com mission declared in Its final report to Congress. "The tremendous financial burden of government on our people today makes it imperative that full value be received for the taxpayers' dollar.'' The group headed by former President Herbert Hoover asked the lawmakers to— 1. Let the President present plans or a thorough modernization of he huge federal establishment without hampering him by cxcmpt- ng certain agencies. 2. Let his proposals take effect unless the Senate nnd House both disapprove them within SO days. 3. Take the hand of Congress out of administrative fields, thus freeing the executive branch of present restrictions. See $3 Billion Savings In the last few months, the commission—set up by Congress In 1947 —has offered some 27.7 recommendations, with aid from some 300 "task force" experts. Hoover has estimated that the group's propo- s?ls might save the taxpayers *3,000,000,000 a year. "There Is perhaps no time in history," the final report said, when it has been more Important to evaluate the effectiveness of the executive branch of the government In West Demanding Assurance On Red's Blockade Promise; Airlift Again Supplies Berlin Soviet Action AKC OFFICIAL TKSTIFIES - UiivM LIUeiUhal (right) chairman ot Ihc Atomic Euergy Commission t^slltles bolore the SemUe upproprlullcms subcommittee dlscu.s.stnt; funds for ntomlij prog nun at Washington, as Dr. Shields Warren, director of biology nnd medicine division of AKC, lltil n background. <AP Whcphoto.)
