Byrnes, back from his third attempt to write peace treaties for Italy mid jennany's satellites, reported pur- .lal success to President Truman and the nation today utter nearly year of Big Four bickering. Byrnes calls it "some progress" on the difficult road to pence—a contrast to the total failure mid stalemate of the previous two attempts by the Big Pour foreign inln- i:.tcrs lo draft peace treaties. The other two meetings ended In acrimonious accusations. Mr. Truman has reserved us much time as Byrnes wants lor n conference at the White House lodav. Since the President has kept in touch with developments in IViris ijy telephone, Hie two men presumably will begin making plans for the 21-nalian peace conference on July 29. They must agree quickly on delegates to represent the United Stales. Byrnes will deliver his report lo the nation In a radio address tonight at 8 p.m., CST, over the Mutual. Columbia mid American networks. In it he will explain agreements reached in Paris through compromise, nnrt call upon the American people lo support them when he returns lo the pence conference.

R., Cal., aspect if Freeman considered it a "normal" practice to maKe $48,003 in payments "and not receive any lumber." "Yes. it ivas unusual," replied Freeman, "but tiiose were unusual times." Freeman testitied lhi\l he personally "had nothing to da" with obtaining war contracts, E-awartis or advance payments from the company. Chairman James M Mead. D., N. Y.. then asked Freeman to name any high miliUirj officers that lie contacted In representing the combine. "I had no dealings with what you call the hi^h officials." Freeman replied. "I was the fellow down below. I was to make sure that all facilities were obtained and to solve materials and manpower problems." "Did you ever contact Congressman May?"-Mead asked. "I have," Freeman said. "How often?" "Froliably six or eight times— ninybe more." f Freeman said lie earned from • $25,000 to S10.000 a year during the war as Washington representative of two of thc companies in the Midwest munitions combine. May l>cminil Aiipcarancc Chairman James M. Mead, D., N. Y., said the committee's previous Invitations for May to tcs'i_- fy voluntarily still stood, hut th",l "there will bc no further written informal invitation." Mead said that committee attorneys arc examining "the law as to bringing Congressman May bclorc Ihc committee by legal process." Sen. Hugh D. Mitchell. D, Wash., a member of the committee, suggested special legislation to force May to tell the committee utuU'r oath about his connections with the "paper empire" syndicsile nc- of cused of making enormous war profits. Mead, who has rejected May's offer to testify on his o'.vn terms, again assured that May wouM "bc given a full and fair opportunity to state any and all facts relevant to this tnaticr." But, Mead added: "He will not be permitted to dl- .rcct our proceedings. He will bc j < accorded exactly the same privileges .granted to any other witness." May had requested, among other things, that he have the right to cross-examine witnesses and to use the committee's power of sutfpena to get government records. The committee resumed its inquiry loday with Joseph Freeman, Washington representative O f "p:»per empire" firms, as Hie first witness. He did not claim any immunity en questioning. Scheduled to take, the witness chair today were Allen B. Gclhuan and Joseph T. Weiss, brothers-in- law who put up the original capital with which Dr. Henry M. Garsson nnd his brother.
