(ip> — ballot on the taue. * President, Truman's controversial nomination of Ambassador Philip C. Jessup as a United Nations delegate brought a new demand today for a Senate showdown vole "lo keep him from serving." Senator Hickenlooper (R-Iovva) put it. that way .as Harold E. Stassen, who has been sharply critical of Jcssup, arranged to testify again before a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee considering the appointment. Slasscn, president of the University of Pennsylvania and a Republican, promised in advance of the session lo produce new evidence "directly affecting" the nomination. Senator Sparkman- tD-A!ai, ihe subcommittee chairman, said he hopes the group will get around to a voie by nightfall on whether to recommend Surmte confirmation of Jc.'sup. who is an ambassador-at- large and a top aide to Secretary of State Acheson. Indications continued, meanwhUu, that the Senate itself is likely to lake no action on the nomination before Congress adjourns. The lawmakers trying to close up .shop by Saturday, Backers of Jessup reportedly are convinced they can't muster enough votes to win confirmation. They nre understood to favor shelving the appointment to leave the way open for Mr. Truman to hand Jessup recess assignment to the November meeting of the U. N. General As' sembJy in Paris. The President could do that without Senate approval. In demanding that the Senate be given a chance to vote on the appointment. Hickeniooper joined forces with Senator McCarran (E- Nev), who said over the week-end Jessup "should not be permitted to serve under any circumstances." Hickenlcoper and McCarran predicted the Senate will turn Jessup down If it gets an opportunity to WAR (Continued from Page 1) Ing toward the front north of Yang- gu.

Most of the Chinese troops see* were teen-aged boys or middle-age men. - The comparatively easy advance against, only "moderate" resistance raised two questions for the Allied high command: 1. TK this a general collapse of Chinese defenses on the central front? 2. Or SK it merely the feeble delaying action of low-quality screening troops? Answer Soon The answer Is likely to come .soon. At some points along the line Allied field guns are within range of Kum- song. If the Reds mean to defend "I am opposed to a ap- xrinUneiH and the only way to itork it is to vote on the ncmina- ion."
