Foes Taber 'Believes 'Plan 'Fund Request too Great, Sets Goal lor GOP WASHINGTON, (/?) -- Republicans set out today to chop some $5,000,000,000 (billions) out of President Truman's $39,660,000,000 budget for the year starting July 1. The foreign aid program appeared likely to be the main target of the money saving drive. A $5,000,000,000 slash was the tentative goal set by chairman Taber (R-NY) pending a meeting j of the senate-house budget com- j mittee to go over details of the i unprecedented peacetime spending | estimate Mr. Truman sent to i Congress yesterday. j While Taber declined to specify | just-what items most likely would j be singled out for cuts, he noted j that the President's estimate of actual foreign aid outlays during the year and his requests for funds to finance other projects not yet authorized by law run well over $5,000,000,000 (billion*. Not Enacted For example, he said, the President wants "naif a billion dollars f f i fjnfmpr* iinv^r f ,-nl m i T H n r T training legislation, which Congress has 'not enacted and which some of its top leaders expect it 10 put aside for at least another year. Taber pointed out that while the Marshall plan for European recovery contemplates a ?6,800. 000,000 appropriation for the first 15. months, the budget says only §4,000,000,000 of that sum will be spent during the 12 months starting July 1. The New Yorker termed even that "too much." · And, Taber added, "the President's proposals for huge outlays for education, social welfare and housing, just to mention a few, seem way out of line even if Congress does authorize these programs." $5 Billion Goal Whatever the decision on his $5,000,000,000 goal, Taber said he "wouldn't be satisfied w i t h a n y thing less" t h a n a cut of $4,500 ,000,000.

Although the new budget exceeds by nearly $2,000,000,000 the anticipated government outlay for the current fiscal year, Mr. "Truman told Congress "it was tailored lo "rigid standards of operating economy" and is necessary to cope with "the realities of our existing international and domestic requirements." Tub Sought for Victim of Polio The importance of supporting the -drive for funds for infantile .paralysis which starts here Thursday is .proven by the case of little Beverly Sabin, eight-momhs-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Sabin of Seneca Castle. Little Beverly with the help of her parents and local public health nurses is slowly recovering from polio which struck when she was just three months old. After two months in the hospital she returned to her home where the slow process of muscle rehabilitation began. Part of the treatment is full underwater motion .to strengthen afflicted muscles. In Beverly's case one arm and one leg were affected and a tub, either galvanized or enamel about three feet in length is needed to speed treat- mnt. So far neither her .parents nor public health nurses have been able lo find one. The nurses ask that anyone knowing where such a tub can be found contact their office at the court house, phone 823. NEW YORK. L-P-A11 46 survivors who abandoned the army's flame-swept funeral transport Joseph V. Connolly were safe today aboard two other vessels after a dramatic rescue irom meooats in which they had tossed for 11 hours in raging north Atlantic seas. Rescue of t h e 46--the Connolly's | 45 crewmen and its lone passen- j ger- was completed last night af- ' ..,.,,.. ter an all day air and sea search I k.: : for the survivors who abandoned their blazing ship in a northeast ·j;ale some 900 miles east of New York. The half-dozen men were picked up by the army transport Gen. R. E. Callan and the Black Diamond line's Union Victory which sped to the scene after intercepting the stricken Connolly's calls for help earlier in the day. Long-range air force planes from Kindley field in Bermuda aided in the rescue. The two ships reported all hands safely a b o a r d ' w i t h "minor burns and injuries among survivors." The Gen. Callan. still standing by the Connolly late last night, niessaged t h a t the distressed vessel \vas ablaze "from stem to stern ( with constant eruptions from 40 Master of Transport to 50 feet." An army sea-going tug left New York harbor yesterday morning to attempt salvage operations but tlie Callan's master radioed that the tug would "not be able to come within one-half mile of the flaming derelict." ! Cause of the fire, which originated in the Connolly's engine- I room, had not been determined, the Callan said. The New York port of embarkation said 27 of the men, including three injured, were taken aboard Twenty-nine tire companies responded to battle this stubborn blaze in a warehouse, formerly a Bell Aircraft Corp. plant, on the west side of Buffalo, N. Y. The plant was beinjj used to store crated machinery held by the War Assets Administration.

Broker Says He Was in Market Until Nov. 25 ! Senate Committee on; tinues Investigation of \ Trading in Commodity, i Markets WASHINGTON, UP) -- Briff. Gen. Wallace H. Graham's .broker testified today that under written instructions he held Graham's wheat trading account open until Nov. 25, 1947, seven weeks after President Truman had criticized grain speculators. Harry Brisker, customers' man for Bache Co. Brokers, also told the senate appropriations committee he does not remember specifically that Graham called: him after the president's Oct.,, blast against speculators and asked that Graham's grain holdings be sold. · .". : Graham, the president's person^ al physician, had .testified previously that he got .hurriedly b'ujt of the wheat market after -the i president lashed out on .Oct. $ against "gamblers" in grain. He got out, he said, except for one small purchase, but continued to deal in cotton until Dec. 18. Cotton A Commodity ' The youthful army officer said he didn't know cotton was re-- garded as a commodity and had thought he was correct .when h£ said a public statement that he had gotten out of the commodity markets. * : - ·.·· Graham referred to a statement he issued when it was first disclosed that he had been trading in. commodities. " ' . · ' · Graham said President Truman, did not know he was in the market until lists assembled by Secretary of Agriculture Anderson disclosed his name. He added that fre- never got any trading advice from anypne except his broker. Graham, who previously said lie had "lost his socks" in ".exchang'e trading, presented a statement showing that he had made .a profit of $6,165.26 in commodities'. But he said he lost 511,012.86 in stock trading and so had a net loss of §4,847.61. Graham's original public story was that after Mr. Truman's blast at commodity "gamblers," he asked his broker if he had any commodities and immediately ordered them sold. This account was challenged by Harold E. Stassen, aspirant for the Republican presidential nomination, who said Graham did not get out of the market until after Stassen inquired whether any White House personnel was engaging in such trading. In a prepared statement he read to the committee today, Graham said that he "assumed that the criticism the president made was of the buying of wheat or grain and I thought of that as commodities." "I did not think he criticized tbJe" buying of cotton, for instance, and cotton, I, of course, said to go when the broker recommended ahead," Graham said. Trading Is Legal Speculative trading in commodities is entirely legal, but Mr. Truman contended that "gambling" was running up the price of grain. Some grain exchange men dispute that contention. A compilation submitted by Gra- ham showed that he had sold 100 bales of July cotton on Dec. 18. Another notation said "closed out against pur 11-29," indicating that the purchase in question may have been made on Nov. 29. Graham conceded today that his broker. Harry Brisker, had acted under his orders in making purchases. He said he (Graham), assumed "full responsibility" for the trading that had been 'done. Previously he had said he told the broker to make purchases and. sales when the latter thought advisable and did not know of all of his holdings. Graham said that, against the advice of his broker, he had bought stocks which later dropped in price. He did not specify which stocks, but said he bought some shares in a Kansas City concern, first through a broker in Kansas City. He said he then switched hi? operations to the Washington broker.
