TUESDAY, JUNE 13, 1950 BLYTHEVTn.E'(ARK.) COURIER NEWS ?AGT! SRVEK Western Germany's Top Red Is Suspended After Outburst BONN, Germany, June 13. (/P) — Max Rcimann, West Germany's top Communist, was suspended for 30 days from Ihe West German parliament today afler a noisy Communist outburst broke up a session of [ Ihe parliament's lower house (Buii- • dostag). Fight broke out on the lloor ol Ihe Bundestag when the parliamentary guards attempted to remove the shouting Reimmann. Communist and anil-Communist members of parliament kicked at each other and swung a few wild blows vith their fists. No one was injured In the briel melee which began afler the session had oeen adjourned. The tumult began when all pai-- tles except the Communists Joinec In a declaration condemning the loss of East German territories lo Poland. Communists Deriniim'Pd The declaration denounced tin Communist-dominated East German government for signing a pact will) Poland last week accepting the lew East German border as permanent. Tile Communists demanded a debate on the declaration which ,he other parties Intended merely to read Into the parliamntary records. "I demand to be heard on this question," Rcimann shouted. The. other 13 Communist deputies took up the cry. When he was unable to quiet the Communists, President Erich Kochler recessed the session. Meeting Reconvened A few minutes later he reconvened the meeting to announce that Reimann would be barred from parliamentary sessions for a period of 30 days. Reimann still refused to leave. Ills party colleagues surrounded him when guards attempted to re- move him. Anti-Communist Deputies then went to the aid of the guards, kick- Ing and swinging their fists. No solid blows were struck, however, and the fight was quickly broken up Tempera Flare The flare of tempers demonstrated the bitterness of German feeling over the issue of the "Oder- Ncisse line." At the Potsdam conference of 1945. German territory east of the Oder and Nelsse rivers were awarded temporarily to Poland, subject to confirmation in the peace treaty. Poland, however, ousted ill Germans from these regions and incorporated the territory Into the Polish state. Then last week the East German government sponsored by Russia' signed a pact with Poland accepting the Oder-Neisse line as German's permanent eastern border. Leaders Agree West Coast Defense Against A-V/crfare is Inadequate SAN FRANCISCO, June 13. (fl»>— Civilian leaders ami military experts are agreed the west- coast's defense against atomic warfare is inadequate. But they disagree on who is to blame. The civilians say the federal _ government and military are at E* fault. The military blame the civilians. That—plus ominous warnings of the effects of atom bombing—was the tenor of a two-day conference opening here yesterday, with the mayors of Pacific coast cities their representatives In attendance. Mayor Calls Meet The conference was called by Mayor Elmer Robinson of San Francisco, who has charged the government with failing to provide adequate information for civilian defense in case of an attack. Robinson noted yesterday Wesl Coast cities represented at the meeting have a total population of nearly 5.000,000 and "all are within approximately 10 hours flying time of the nearest Soviet air base," But Lt. Col. \V. M. Hanes. Sixth Army planning officer, declarec many municipalities had fnllci down on the civilian planning effort. He said: Organization Chart 'One of the large bay area cltie has nothing bxit an orgniiizatioi chart, despite repeated efforts the military." Added to this divergence of view was a gloomy picture by a medical xpcrt who inspected the world's irst atom-bombed cities, Hiro- hinm and Nagasaki Dr. Stafford Warren, dean of the medical school at the University of Angeles in California, said 10 item bombs could wipe out any :ity along the Pacific coast. Radius of Ruin Speaking to mayors of cities from Seattle to San Diego, he noted the radium of ruin in the two Japanese itics was from a mile to a mile find a haU and then said the new atomic bombs were reported twice EIS destructive. Dr. Warren said evacuation would be the only answer in case of an atomic attack, as It is impossible to clean up a contaminated area.

Congress to Decide Quickly on Rent Bill By JAMES MAtUXHV WASHINGTON. June 13. (AP)—! Ve'll know quickly whether we're going to keep federal rent controls. They're due lo die in another 17 days—June 30—unless both houses Congress vote to keep them onger. The Senate yesterday did just hat. The Houre was to tackle ihe iroblem today. If the House voles 'no," the controls then die June 30. The Senate approved keeping Hie controls another six months bn- i'ond June 30, or until Dec. 31. Controls Die Dee. 31 Then under the Senate bill— which is the same bill the House will take up—all federal rent controls die Dec. 31 everywhere except— In any town or city which wants to keep them longer. In that case federal controls will remain on that city or town until June 30, 1051. But such a town or city will have to act to keep them. That is, ny a vote of the city's governing l/ody or a vote of the people there. Last April President Truman asked Congress to continue the controls at lea-sl a full year beyond June 30, 1950. On the opiwsite side of the lence were those who wanted all federal controls to die June 30. Compromise BUI So the bill approved by the Senate yesterday was a compromise between those two viewpoints: six montlis more of controls, at least instead of a full year more or none at all, Even if both Houses vote continuance, federal controls will apply only in 40 stales. The following eight stales have cither eliminated federal controls by their own action, permitted under present law, or soon will do so Wiscoiisin, New York, Alabama Virginia, Nebraska, Texas, Utal and Arizona. New York and WIs consln passed their own rent con trol laws. Started In 1942 Rent controls were started 1 1942 and reached a peak in 19-tf when 16.000,000 dwelling units wer tinder control. Since then halt of them, or 8.00,000 units, have been de-control-' ed. The bill which the Senate pas.i- d yesterday was recommended to t by the Senalc Banking and Cur- ency Committee. This committee studied Ihe rent ontrol problem and on June f> 1s- ucd a report to Ihe lull conimil- ee, suggesting controls be kept. Carefully Studied It said: "After careful study of ill Ihe testimony, your committee las concluded that the housing shortage growing out ol the dislocations ol World War II Is still acute In £o many communities .hroughout the nation as to tun- slltute a national emergency requiring the continuation of federal rent control for a further limited period. . . . "By Ihe middle of 1950 only 240 incorporated localities had extrcis- cd their right (to decontrol themselves, under Ihe present law wliicl ejids June 30). Well over 3,001 incorporated places have not clrxser to decontrol themselves and hav< remained under federal control. Nccilcit in Cities "It Is generally assumed tha rent control U needed only in th larger cillcs, yet rent control board in over 500 communities under 25, 000 population recently advised th expediter (boss of the rent control program) that housing shortages still existed in Ihelr communities and urRCd him not to decontrol their areas," The coininlltee then concluded hat In another year there'll b« cry few stales in which the hou.i- ng shortage will be so acute lh»l cdcral controls are needed uijr onger.
