Tlie Senate may start debating the administration's Taft-Hartley repealer this week, although the State Department is urging action first on ratification of the Atlantic Treaty. | Foes of the administration labor' bill are claiming powerful support for a Republican-written substitute measure. The substitute, offered by GOP Senators Taft (Ohio). Donnell (Mo) and Smith (NJ). would make 28 changes in the Taft-Hnrtlcy law but preserve what the sponsors call the basic principles of the law.

Require both management and labor officials to sign affidavits that they are not Communists or fascists. 3. Guarantee free speech, short of intimidation or coercion, to both employers and orkers. V. Require both labor and management to bargain collectively in good faith. 5. Require unions to file financial reports. greater spending Is to be expected from Increased outlays for such things as farm price supports, the handling of unemployment compensation funds, costs of job placements, etc. Senate To Gel Plans While appropriations are primarily a matter for McKellar's committee, economy proposals are coining up also before the Senate Expenditures Committee, headed by McClellan. President. Truman has spending plans for about $42.000,000,000 in the upcoming fiscal year, and McClellan said a preliminary survey indicates that "much of it is untouchable." Veterans benefits, interest on the public debt and other governmental obligations fall into this category. McCleilan's committee hearing will consider two separate economy proposals thut might well provoke a teo. One issue in the speed-up dispute to arbitration wns reached early Sunday after days of steady negotiations. About 65.000 UAW members employed In the struck Rouge and Lincoln plants ratified it by big margins at meetings later in the day. by Senators Tydings <D- Md>.

Critics say both moves ash President Truman to make decisions on cutting funds that Congress was unable or unwilling to do. Ironically, neither company nor union will know for sometime who actually won the strike that cost Ford and Die workers an estimated $17,000,000. Attempts to select either a single arbitrator or a three-man board will begin tomorrow But it may be weeks before any decision is handed down on the main Issue—allocation of manpower. Meanwhile, Ford speeded arrangements to get assembly lines rolling again in Its big Industrial empire Maintenance workers at the Lincoln phnit started back first. The rest of Lincoln's 6,000 em- ployes are to be recalled tomorrow together with 16,000 of the 59,000 workers at the huge Rouge plan!

Along with a. trade iwltcy built on these lines, the State Department is intensively studying the Chinese situation and its Impact on general American foreign policy toward the Far Fast. Only Matter of Time Officials believe It only a ques- lon of time until the Commun- sts take over the whole huge ter- Itory of China. Possibly soon, the Communl.sU! are expected to proclaim formation of a new Chinese government. This will raise the question of American recognition, and while no final decision has been made all ndlcatlons are that this government eventually will recognize the new regime and establish diplomatic relations with it. Action along this line IB expected to be taken In concert with other non-Communist countries, such as Britain and France, with which the United States Is already discussing the formation of a solid non-Communist front^ln Asia as In Europe.
