WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 19W House Defeat For Yugoslav Aid Bill Seen j&' By BARN'EV UVINGSTONR ™ WASHINGTON, Dec. 13. Ifr- President Truman's f»min* relief . 'Ogram for Communist Yugoslavia ran up against the unexpected threat of radical revision or possible defeat in the house today. ' Opposition to the *38,OOO.COO food* . aid program scrambled party lines; members of both parties spoke out againtt "appeasement" of Communism in any form. Although the senate o.n Monday approved 60 to 12 a $50,000,000 grant for drought-stricken Yugoslavia, of which $12,000.000 already had been spent, the relltf proposal ran into bitter House dispute of proportions which c.iught leaders by surprise. Leaders still expressed confid- •LTTHETTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS ence it would be approved .in some form when- the showdown vote comes by nightfall. Some changes appeared probable as the house, on this second day of debate, got down to considering amendments. One of the principal proposals, to be offered by a group of Republicans, would make Die $33.0:0.000 a loan to Marshal Tito's Yugoslav government rather than a gift. Another being considered would .,put the entire relief program into Rthe hands of an independent, non- government agency like the Red Cross or Society of Friends. Seek to Exploit Breaks The administration bill author izes the president to help Yugoslavs get through a food-short wintei occasioned by last summer's crop failure. About $32,000.000 have been spent already on aid through various government agencies. Congressional approval has be v requested frankly for reasons o expediency—to exploit the break between Tito and Moscow. .The hope is that Tito's 32 Army divisions a least would nob fight against - thi West In event of Russian aggres slon in Europe. In advance of today's session Rep. Vory of Ohio, GOP Foreign policy p spokesman in the House predicted the bill "will be beatei unless It Is substantially amended.' A rash of amendments was anticipated by leaders—some of then possibly proposing conditions fo freeing Greek children taken hos tage by Yugoslav guerrillas or religious freedom in Yugoslavia. The Senate version of the bll contains an express statement tha the united .States noes not approve Communist suppression of liberties It seemed unlikely this would satisfy those House members demanding outright defeat of the aid plan.

Defense Work Drains Farm Labor Supply WASHINGTON, Dec. 13. (IP,— Defense industries and the draft have started a noticeable drain on the farm labor supply. Rep. polk (D-Ohlo) *aid today. Polk, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, told a reporter farmers—especially those living near Industrial centers—are finding it increasingly difficult to keep hired help in the face of stiff wage competition from fac lories Uiat-also need manpower. "Fifteen dollars a day looks mighty tempting to a young farm hand," Polk said. "How are you going to keep them on the farm at relatively low wages, when they can earn at least that much In a plant?" Polk said It Is too early to tell just what, will have to be done If the farm labor situation becomes critical; WMffi<M&M YOUR CAR DESERVES 'luhri'fecf/ori' Phillips new method of processing special base stocks by continuous "colci fractionation" means that the oil is subjected to lesa heal.

(#j _ A man who five weeks ago was slowly starving because of a diseased gullet is now eating normally^-thanks to a piece of plastic, Surgeons at Sinai Hospital cut out the tube-like organ connecting the mouth and the stomach and replaced it with a flexible plastic. The hospital, In a tormai announcement released last night through the associated Jewish charities, said It was the first successful operation of.Its type on a human. T"he operation was performed by Dr. Edgar F. German on a patient su;:ering from cancer of the gullet (esophagus), it was the result of three years of research by Dr. Herman and his associates at the hospital s Hoffberger Laboratory. The hospital stressed thai more operations of Its kind must be done before its usefulness may be evaluated properly. • The surgery takes about 90 minutes to complete. This compares, the announcement said, to Ihe as much as .four hours required for the conventional operation in which the esophagus li cut out and the stomach is brought Into the chest so that food passes Into it directly from the mouth. Or. Bcrma.i believes the prime use of the plastic gullet at present would be in patients suffering from cancer. ^ , The announcement made it clear lhat doctors offer no hope of a cancer cure through the new plastic tube. "Only a possible palliative or relieving effect." It said other surgeons have commented (hat if the plastic gullet. should work successfully, it would be especially beneficial to children who swallow lye or adds and suffer irreparable damage to the eso- ph.agus. In many of these cases, fear tissue continues to form, making a construction that must be stretched periodically over a period of years. Two of br. Herman's experimental dogs have been living for over a year with plastic tubes in place of guilds. The hospital said that it ha s been found by microscopic study on animals that an entirely new esophagus lined by mucous membrane grows down around the plastic tube. This opens the possibility, Dr, Herman said, lhat after a time, the plastic tube may be removed, leaving a new and perfectly normil gullet.
