TACB TWO BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS 'WEDNESDAY, APRIti 2S, 199% Truman Sticks to Guns On Steel Despite Fire By O. MILTON KELI.Y WASHINGTON (AP) — President Truman, under heavy Senate fire and facing a. House move to impeach him, stuck to his guns today in the fight with Congress over hi» seizure of the steel plants. A powerful Senate drive to force him to cancel the seizure order fell just short of the two-thirds majority vote it required yesterday. But its Republican backers led by Sen. Knowland of California redoubled their cries of "dictator" and cast about for other devices. Actually 47 senators. 11 of Diem Democrats, voted tor Ihc move, and only 29 voted ngafnsl it. Nol a Republican voted "No". A switch of four votes would have provided the tvvo-lhirds margin needed to suspend Senate rules and permit action on Knowland's proposal to forbid the use of any federal funds in the seizure.

KXpert to Continue Controls Highly placed committee members, Including vigorous critics of the program, told a reporter they now expect the controls will be continued without much but probably only until next March instead of the two-year extension the President had requested. Meanwhile, Truman's boss o! the seized steel plnnts, Secretary o) Commerce Snwycr, was reporte( about to lake his first official move to hand the CIO steel workers big part of a disputed pay boost Employers refused to fjrant the raise without government permission to increase steel prices $12 a ton. The Senate Labor Committee, whose ^ past, notions have had a strong"* pro-administration flavor, called Philip Murray, CIO President and head o/ the steelworkers mlon, to nlr the workers' side of lie story at a public hearing today.

In the House, some Republican leaders Indicated privately they are not too happy over the move to Impeach the President, launched by Rep. Hale (K-Mc) without consulting them. But Hale reported he had picked up support for his resolution calling on the Rules Committee to investigate the seizure and report to the House "together with such resolution of impeachment or other recommendation as it deems proper." The language was identical, except for the names, to an abortive resolution in 1932 nhncd at.

SMITH, Ark. to)—An Indian python, 22 feet long, was absent without leave today from a carni- whEch has been appearing at jicarny Mulberry. Its owner said the snake wasn't dangerous" to humans or livestock. But at Little Rock, Zoo Director Raymond Gray said he wasn't so sure about that. The non-venemous reptile, which kills its prey with its crushing coils, apparently slithered out of its glass- lopped cage at the Moore Shows sometime Tuesday night or earlj yesterday. The more daring residents of the little village of Mulberry, armed with firearms and heavy sticks went snake hunting after the disappearance was reported. Carnival Operator Joe Moore and Brown Harn, the snake's owner said they thought the cage uius have been accidentally left un locked. Dogs and pats were locked in doors by owners fearful for their pels. Harn said the anake was harmless except to birds and small animals. He asked that it not be killed, Gray said th« well-fed pythons of captivity customarily are docile and easily handled, but that n hungry python "won't discriminate in Its choice of animals It must come cross." He declared that a 22-foot python could kill a grown cow—-or a man. Gray recommended that anybody finding the snake might "try to worry It Into a box or cage or use a net such as a fishing seine." "Or," he added, "you could use a snare or a lasso." Gray said he believed the python probably would first hide and then travel by night and coil up by day The escape was the second from a traveling show in Western Arkansas within less than six months, Last Nov. l a truck of the Campa Brothers Circus overturned while traveling through the Ouachita National Forest. Two leopards, thre» bears and a number of monkeys got loose. Both leopards were killed later. So were' two bears; tiic third was recaptured. The night before the truck overturned, a lion belonging to the circus had clawed to death a small girl at Muna, Ark. <Cojitlnued from rape 1) nro Gu.s B. Walton, Little Koch; Henry P.

Hy JACK HKM, PHILADELPHIA i.-D — Gen. 1 Owight D. Elsenhower's whopping popularity poll victory iti the Pennsylvania primary prompted demands by his backers In day for a lion's share of the state's 70 GOP presidential nommnlmg voles, But backers of Sen. Robert A. TaTt. of Ohio, the general's chief opponent for the Republican nomination, called the results "meaningless" so far as the division of convention votes is concerned. Eisenhower, completing liLs duties as NATO military commander before returning tn the United Stales, banged out what may be on the final count a 100,000-vote victory over Tuft in the popularity race. Former Gov. Harold E. Stasson of Minnesota, on the ballot with Eisenhower, trailed in third place In the, primary election yesterday. Contract Wan OUR Sitlrd It was a one--sided contest from the start since Taft kept his name off the ballot, nnri urged his backers not to write It in. He siud the results wouldn't affect the delegate lineup. However, in head-on contests foi eight delegate places from the Pittsburgh area, a slate of Eisen hower candidates led for six S^ht places and the Taft_slate was head for only two. 17 Loan To Ike \ Of 52 other delegates elected by : districts yesterday nnd 10 chosen; at large previously, Associated Press polls showed that 17 lean own I'd Eisenhower, 6 are favorable to Taft, 19 are uncommitted j intl 10 races are not yet settled.
