IX Mont., of the Senate Labor Committee proposed today thai, a presidential commission, rather than congress, survey thc possible need for new labor legislation. Murray said in an interview hT favored a presidential commission because: 1. It could operate on a broader scope thnn congressional committees ordinarily do. 1. A congressional investigation in a campaign^ycar inevitably would Involve thc matter in political considerations. Murray said he would offer Ills plan to the Senate Labor Connr;t- tcD as an alternative to President Truman's suggestion that a Joint congressional committee spend six months studying the situation before enacting any permanent labor laws. It was on that basis Mi Truman recently vetoed the so-call case Anti-Strike Bill.

Mototov, thc foreign ministers council dealt n clcalh Wow today to Austria's clnims for frontlnr revisions with Italy, tnnUnK down tin Austrian demand for thc Pustertnl Valley In the South Tyrol. Tlie council decided earlier this yenr thnt no major frontier favsr- Ing Austria would be made In t!io South Tyrol. It left open the possibility nf minor changes, and tlic AiisUlnns renewed their claim to the Pustcrtal. Russian Foreign Minister Molotov proposed today a resolution to the effect thnt any transfer of the.Piis- tertnl, In thc nortiieasiern part of the South Tyrol, could not lie rc- ISiuded »s constituting a "minor change." Under terms of the. previous decision. It meant that Austria's claim was rejected. Molotov's resolution blaslec\ Austrian hojw.s of recovering at least a part of thc South Tyrol, which wan lost to Italy after thc last wnr. Whether this championing of , Itnly was aimed to get reciprocal I concessions over Trieste remained to be seen. Tho council again debated *the French frontier claims against Italy. but reached no agreement. Tlic chief point at issue was the status of the Tendcs and Brigue valleys, with their two hydro«lectric i sta- llonr, supplying power to Qono<*. • Molotov opposed any nrul decision before the council hnd time til study a memorandum on tlie subject circulated among the dele- potions by the Italian embassy on Mav 6. Tlie memorandum hfid not been discussed by the council, although presumably it was examined b> the Individual delegations. Secretary of State Jumes F, Byrnes told Molotov that thc Italian govtrnment had full opportunity to plead its case and that the council had no time to study these problems. But Iviolotov stood fast.
