WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER », 1950 BLTTHEVTLLE. COURIER NEW! »AOE Sentiment Increases to Let Rent Control Measure Die WASHINGTON, Nov.. 29. President Truman's appeal for a' stop-gap extension of the federal rent control law ran up against Increasing "let It die" sentiment In Congress today, Senator Maybank (D-SC), said, however, that the critical turn of the war In Korea may help push a brief continuance of the federal' rent controls expire Dec. 81 under the present law, except in communities which 'vote to keep them In effect for another six months. Mr. Truman has asked tor a 80-day extension at the current short session, pending a new study ol the issue next year by the 82nd Congress. Maybank heads the Senate Bank- Ing Committee, which arranged closed meeting to get the views of key administration officials regard- Ing a temporary extension. In advance of that meeting. Senator Tobey (K-KH). a member of the committee, salt! he had thought earlier he might go along with an extension but now is "inclined to let the law die." He added: "My observation Is that the majority of the committee seems to feel the same way nlxjut it." Senators Brlcker (R-Ohlo) and Flanders <R-Vt), also members the committee, came out flatt> against any extension. On the other hand, Maybank tol a reporter he tlilnks the committee will approve a short extension— perhaps for 60 days. He said he expects the real battle to come on the Senate floor, with "plenty of opposition" there to a continuance. Two of 8 Shejby Penal Convicts Still Eluding Search Officers MEMPHIS, Tenn., Nov. 29. W— The last two of eight convicts who' escaped from the Shelby County Penal Farm Monday nliht were recaptured by city police today. MEMPHIS, Term.,.Nov, 29. (A>l— Two of eight convicts who broke out of the Shelby County Penal Farm UN (Continued from page 1) from Austin at the horseshoe- shaped table, answered American charges that the Chinese Communists were openly committing aggression In Korea by claiming that the United States was the aggressor there and had Invaded Formosa. Speaking' in a high pitched voice. Wu followed closely the arguments the Soviet Bloc has repeated over and over on the Korean and For- mosr.n questions. • A Western delegation source said Wu's speech, his first In the U.N.. had created the worst possible Impression among non - Communist . representatives. The informant added that the speech had these two immediate results: it has drawn the Western countries ' closer eo- gether on the whole problem and has shown that Wu Is not at Lake Success for conciliation. Some observers thought Wu had : outdone Ihe Russians In blasting the United States. Wu said America was guilty of "cunning" aggression against Vietnam, the Philippines. Japan and Bother Asian countries as well as '•PSnlnst China and Korea. He rte- "manded that the .Security council slap strong sanctions on the Washington government. 20 Questions Asked Austin had asked Wu 20 questions. He sought by these to find out why the Chinese Communists had thrown 200.000 troops into Korea against United Nations forces and wrmt they wanted there. Wu Ignored the questions and said he would not speak on American charges based on reports received from Qen. MacArthur, U.N. Commander. He maintained that the Chinese Reds in Korea were volunteers who had gone there because they sr.v; the "flames" of war coming closer to their border. The Peiplnc spokesman said the Chinese people are offering In great numbers to aid the Koreans and his government sees to neason to prevent the volunteers from goinj to the front. Austin anticipated Wu's claim about the "volunteers." The American delegale said "The news makes It quite clear that Chinese Communist forces In Korea are organized on nn army, corps and divisional basin." ,rtte asked Wu if he would tell the •Bstincil how long Pelplng had planned She aggression and said: "It Is apparent to anyone that an operation of this kind is not organized in a few days or weeks. It must be true that these troops were trained and equipped as a disciplined fiaht- Ing force over a long period and that their attack was carefully prepared." ' Dixie Democrats Fight to Block Statehood Bill Southerners Receive Strong Backing From Leading Republicans By O. MII.TON' KEIXY WASHINGTON, Nov. 29. (fl>) . Southern Democrats, with strong Republican backing, waged an all- out fight in the Senate today to block the bill to grant statehood to Alaska. President Truman has asked th< short session of Congress to pas: the bill and a companion Hawaiian measure, both passed by the House One Southerner, asking not to be named, told a reporter the dispute might endanger Mr. Truman's en lire program for the session. Tin President has asked for rent con trol legislation and big defense ap propriations, among other things before this Congress expires Jan. 3! Senator Lucas (D-I1I), Democratic floor leader, called the fight a filibustering effort to talk the Alaska statehood bill to death. He voiced concern over its apparent propor- n a hail of bullets were tllli on the lose today. But the Intense search launched by law officers Imthe area had six of the men back behind bars yesterday—Including 21-year-old Norman E. Carter of Kcckford, 111., described as the ringleader of tlie break. Carter was also the only escapee with a gun. But prison farm manager Tom Hooker said Carter surrendered to pursuing officers after emptying his pistol at them. Hooker said a guard fired one warning shot, when Carter opened fire. NO one was lilt. Another convict, Ralph Hartsell, 28, of Hot Springs, Ark., was with Carter/ Officers said the two men missing—John S. Johnson. 23, and Daniel T. Perkins, jr., 19, both o[ Mem phis—probably would be rounded up quickly. The other four convicts were captured In and around the city. All eight men were serving time foi rcnbcry, larceny or attempt to commit a felony. JURY tlons. The anonymous Southern spokesman suggested that he saw little point In Senate 'committees working to draft rent control and other Administration measures if Administration forces planned to let statehood become a long drawn fight. No Hint Given The Dixie leadership, however, gave no hint it might b« thinking of offering to trade its support of Administration bills for abandonment of the statehood measure. Southern Senators long have objected to granting statehood to Alaska and Hawaii for a variety of reasons—among them a belief that any Senators elected by the new states would be likely to link up with northern supporters of civil rights bills. To Lucas and many others the fight looked and sounded like the start of a filibuster—the ancient device of dragging.out debate until the opposition yields. Senator Taft (R-Ohlo) announced he would vote against giving the statehood bills the right-of-way. He told reporters, however, the Senate GOP Policy Committee which he heads has not taken a stand on the Issue. Both major party platforms advocate statehood for the two territories. Contlnueo from Page 1. testified before the jury that death was caused from "suffocation due to asphyxia." He stated that both Mrs. York and Mr. Caster had been drinking. The jury also heard the testimony of A. V. McDanfel, night clerk a the tourist court. Mr. McDanie told the jury that he las' saw Mr. Caster about l:3i a. in. yesterday when he cami to the tourist court office to com plain about his cabin being cold "I told him to turn the stove up some b-.t he told me lhat line stove was turned on as far as It would go but that it wan't burn- ng. So I suggested that he change cabins and he transferred from Cabin 17 to Cabin No. 5 •' Mr McDaniel said. Died About 7 a.m. At the time, Mr. McDaniel told the jury, Mr. caster was alone. He stated that Mr. Caster had already checked In at the tourist court when he went on duty at 5 p.m. Monday. Dr. Skaller placed the time of the couple's death at around 7 a.m. yesterday.
