BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. XL.V—NO. 210 Blythevllle Dally Newt Blythevllle Courtei Blythevllle Hertld Mississippi Vallej Leader THE POMIMAM1 NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST AHKANSA8 AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI Senator Denies Speech Brought Security Order Johnson Disavows Part- in Crackdown <g On Defense Secrets By iMarvici I.. Arrowsniilh WASHINGTON, Nov. 26. OT—A high government official said privately today that a senator's television discussion of atomic weapons helped touch off a prcsirienlia crackdown on talk about defense secrets. Hut the Senator—Edwin C. Johnson (D-Colo)—denied emphatically that the broadcast had any part In President Truman's action late yesterday. And Johnson reiterated thai he thinks there has been too little secrecy—not too much—about the atomic energy program. Tile President late yesterday directed Attorney General McGiall to lighten up the safeguarding <i\ atomic and other national security Information. McGrath and Senator McMahon (D-Conn>, chairman the Senate-House Atomic Energy Committee, told newsmen a'bout the order after conferring witli Mr Truman for more than an hour Neither McGrath nor McMaror would say what prompted the directive. They declined to answer questions about Johnson. Ktanics Telecast But an official entirely familia with the reasons for the crackdown order told a reporter: "There has been a series of in. cldents endangering sccuritv wi.icl disturbed the President, but it is safe to say that the whole thing was ^ brought to a head by the Johnsoi pJHtelecast." '•if The television program to whict he referred originated in New York on Nov. 1. The subject of the pane discussion was: "Is there loo muci secrecy in our alomic program?" Johnson, a member ol the joint atomic committee, argued that there is not enough secrecy. But during the debate he asserted that: 1. Tliis country's scientists have developed an A-bomb which hns si> times the effectiveness of the bomb dropped at Nagasaki in 1945. 2. The United States is working —«nd has made considerable progress—on an -A-bomb 1,000 time, more .powerful 'than the Nagas.ik ' "•;" 3. American sr.bntisls have'-go^ far toward finding a way to explode an enemy bomb before i reaches Discussed "Know-How" Johnson said later that he disclosed nothing that was not already public information. And he. said thai in referring to the data during the telecast as "top secret" he was talk ing about 'know-how 1 '—knowlertgi of how to manufacture the thinirs he discussed. Johnson said he was told by a "top source" after yesterday's Whiti House conference (hnt Hie telecasl ^_ In which he participated was ir %r no way responsible for Mr. Tru- 'fT man's order. But the official who reported that the telecast did play a hig part In Ihe order said Johnson's remarks "were the culmination of events which caused Mr. Truman to take action. This source said another of the events was the recent public wrangle—aired before the House Armed Services Comfnittce—over how effective the B-36 plane, carrier o the A-bomb would be In another war. That Congressional Investigation also highlighted sharp differences among Army, Navy and Air Force leaders over national defense policy. U.S.-Owned Firm %ta Panama Target Of Stoning Attack PANAMA. Panama. Nov. 26. f.'T*j— Offices of the U. S.-owned Panama Power and Light Company were stoned today, a few hours after publication of the news that Ihc United States has no diplomatic re- Intions with this country.

Fraternities Ask Repeal of Bans On Membership WASHINGTON, Nov. 26. <«>)—An undergraduate group succeeded today in getting a resolution against racial or religious discrimination officially before the Notional' Inter- Fialernity Conference. Its prospects were highly uncertain, however, in view of yesterday's ruling by the conference executive committee that the subject was not a proper one for the organization of 57 Greek letter societies to rule on. The measure was sent to the Resolutions Committee, which was to report shortly before the close of the conference late today.

Truman Sees Latest Army-Navy Squabble — This Time on Gridiron PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 26. M')— President Truman arrived here today In a gay holiday mood to attend the Army-Navy football game. He went through his 11-cnr special train enroute here from Washington, shaking hands with reporters and others among the more than 200 passengers. "How are you game?" he was asked. "I'm not betting" he replied, "but I m sitting this year on the Army side.

Nov. 26. <AP) —An assassination attempt on liberal party leader Dario Echandia was rcixirted last night as Colombia prepared for a disputed presidential election tomorrow. Echandia, his party's presidential candidate until It called for a boycott of the election, apparently escaped injury. But two party colleagues with him were reported killed and his brother Vicente and Ills bodyguard were reported wounded. The reports came from friends of Echandia. With Bogota under » nightly curfew to hold down pre- election violence, details were not immediately available. Determined military police action against liberal demonstrators, in- elding firing of shots Into the air, and a liberal-called general sltdown strike added yesterday to the tension here. -: ^, • ; IN-'I.;- -V >'.^ ,,-.

Twice crowds shouting "Vivas" for the liberals tried to assemble In main squares of the town.

After the second firing, one man was reported killed, but there was no confirmation from the army command post. No other casualties were rejiorted. The outbursts broke a. deep quiet In Columbia's capital yesterday after the liberals called a general sit- down strike as a protest against tomorrow's election and the government-proclaimed state of siege which some weeks ago suspended the liberal-dominated parliament.

Ward WASHINGTON, Nov. 26—WJ—A bid from one big group of coal operators for renewed contract talks with John L. Lewis bolstered hope today for avoiding a new mine strike December 1. Joseph E. Moody, president of the Southern Coal Producers Association, said his group "felt It was time to resume negotiations." Tho contract discussions were broken off by the Southern operators, as well as by representatives of mine owners In the north and west, in October. "Mr. Lewis can advise us If he thinks It's possible to como to terms on a contract," Moody told reporters last night after telegraph- Ing the mine leader that he was willing to reopen negotiations. Reports persisted, despite some denials, that other operator groups also might invite peace talks with Lewis any hour. Cliing Is Active Conciliation Director Cyrus S. Clung, who announced a few days ago (hat he was going to Chnrlot- tesville, Va., for a rest, was mysteriously active behind the scenes. Conferences with Lewis and telephone conversations with coal operators reportedly were conducted by the conciliation chief in the last 21 hours. But chfng refused to discuss his activities or even to confirm that he was back In the coal dispute at all. The reports of his efforts to bring the parties into bargain- Ing sessions cnmc from Industry sources. There have been broad hints that Lewis Is rendy to extend the present strike truce beyond Thursday, if the operators showed some signs of making a conlrlct proposition. The three-week truce which Lewis called on November 3 expires next Wednesday at midnight. Lewis has called his 200-rnnn policy committee' to meet in New York Monday. Meeting* of soft coal operators In PttUbsrgh failed to produce any :bif: .tflKjgirjns .as the triice deadline approached, leaving It up to Lewis to make a move. Besides extending the truce another 30 days or so, Lewis could allow the miners to resume their strike. Miners Not Eaprr But they were believed to have little stomach for [mother long test of economic strength. Christmas is less than a month away and the miners have hud short rations since their contract expired last June 30. President Truman conferred yesterday with CIO President Philip Murray, one-time lieutenant of Lewis, and the mine leader's successor as head of the CIO. Tilcre was speculation — which Murray disclaimed—that he and the President might have talked over organized labor's attitude toward the possible use of the Taft- Hnrtlcy Act In the coal dispute. The act's provision to rcourt Injunctions forms Mr. Truman's major weapon In the even of any walkout thnt threatens the nation's welfare. The President has said he will use that weapon if he considers a national coal emergency on hand. But the chief executive Is not anxious to invoke Taft-Hnrtley—a law both he and labor arc pledged to repeal. He didn't use it against Murray In the recent steel strike. New York Cotton NEW YORK.

W)—The government will issue a "new and improved edition" this week of the best-selling booklet in which H tries lo explain its admittedly complicated income tax laws to confused taxpayers. Internal Revenue Commissioner George J. Schoencman announced today that the 138-page pamphlet "Your Federal Income Tax" will go on snle at the Government Printing Office here Dec. I. Like last year's issue—which was the first—the price will be 25 cents, despite a 13-page increase in the si7.e. The commissioner said the book- pet is designed for those among the S3.000.000 persons making income (ax returns who "have special problems or want more detailed information." The great majority of taxpayers he commented, won't "need or want" as much Instruction as this booklet undertakes to provide. He added: "We have made every effort i o make the income tax forms us self- explanatory as possible. We ulso provide, without charge, a 16-page pamphlet of Instruction with the which U de&igned to |lvt tin great majority of taxpayers clear, understandable information." The big booklet, observinR in a foreword that "income lax laws arc, of necessity, complicated." Irles hard to make Its points In ensy-to- understand language. Tt has such new features this year as: Facsimiles of the Individual Income lax forms; new chapters on Ihe lax treatment of Installment sales and on the appeals procedures available to income tax payers; and it detailed index. "In addition," jald a Revenue Bureau slatement, "the new booklet Includes suggested changes submitted by the public In response lo the invitation contained in the previous edition." When Ihe booklet was inaugurated last year, giving for the first time official advice on what taxpayers can do to hold their pay- menu as low as the law allows, it got a. warm reception. Schoeneman said It became "one of the fastest selling publications" handled by the Government Print- Ing Office. Over 345,000 copies of the . 1948 edition were distributed by public sales «nd shipment to Intemil Revenue offico.

Nineteen beauties are entered in National Grange Rejects Brannan Farm Price Plan Agri Organization Calls Crop Support Idea 'Internal Cancer' 8ACHAMENTO, Calif., Nov. 26. (AP) — The National Grange has rejected the lirannan Farm price suppoit program as "an Internal cnnccr that would ultimately destroy our free enterprise system." The resolution condemning tho tiirm program proposed by Secretary of Agriculture Charles F. Brannan was a highlight of the closing session of the 12-day National Orange convention last night. Delegates from 37 slates took part In Installing Master Albert S. Goss for Ills fifth two-year term just he- fore passing the resolution which said of the Brannan plan: "The proposal has totally undesirable implications, clearly, under such a system, that party which would promise to farmers the largest bonus out of the treasury would earner many votes not obtainable on the basis of an honest, sound platform. 'It would then become a race to see which party \vould promise most." The resolution said that Brannan type of subsidy would make fann- ers "public beggars for a fair In- conic'' and destroy their character nnd sell reliance. Blames Unsound Methods (The Brannan plnn, shelved at the recent Congress, calls for lull parity supports through purchases nnd loans, an at present, for corn, cotton, wheat, rice, peanuts nnd tobacco. For perishable products the price would bo permitted to seek Its natural level In tho market place. The government would determine a "fair price" In advance anil then pay the producers the difference between that price and the natural price, if it were lower.) The resolution suggested that today's farm problem results largely from unsound methods. "The output of farms and of Industry have not been kept in proper balance," it said, "Farm products have not reached the right market's nnd our notion has not given enough consideration, to a belter, diet for our entire population." The subsidy method of solving the difficulties was assailed as "at best a temporary device which will only serve to postpone the time when i sound solution must be reached." The resolution maintains there arc other means than the Brannan plan to help the farmer obtain t fair income, ft specifically recommends more advertising, strengthened cooperative marketing and the use of a dual or multiple price system.
