FACE EIGHT BLri'HEVIU.B, (AHK.) COUKIER NEWS SATURDAY, JUNE IT, 1950 Lucas Predicts Early Senate Approval Of Huge Program for Foreign Arms Aid B.r JACK BRU, WASHINGTON. June 17. IVT) — Early Senate approval of a $1,222,600,000 foreign arms program was forecast today by Senator LUCA.I of Illinois, the Democratic leader. At the same time, Senator Knowland (R-Calif> told a reporter he regards a bill revised by the combined Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees as much more petlsfactory than the original draft offered by the State Department. The committees Informally approved the authorization measure yesterday after acting to limit President Truman's power lo furnish military supplies to other nations. In his original request. Mr. Truman sought authority lo give arms fo any nation whose defense he regarded RS vital to the security of the United states.

He said It WHS too broad, Lucas told a reporter he will call up the military assistance bill ?s soon as the Senate acts, probably next week, on a proposed three-year extension of the military draft. "I don't believe there will be any serious fisht on the military assistance nrogram/f he said. Money for Die program will have to be approved In a separate bill. Howei'er. Chairman Connally (D- Tex) of the combined com mil tees held the bill open for * Monday session at which Senator Lodge (R- Mass) will have a chance to bring up again his Idea for using part of the European recovery program's counterpart funds to pay for arms manufacture. For each dollar of aid under the Marshall Plan, foreign governments put the equivalent of a dollar In their own money Into an account to be used /or recovery projects. These are called counterpart funds. Economic Cooperation Administrator Paul Hoffman has opposed the Irfidge proposal, on the grounds that It would feed Communist propaganda that the recovery program was really designed only to ?et western Europe ready for war. Connally conceded that Lodge ha* some support within the corn- mi 11 ees for h is proposal. But the chairman Indicated he doesn't believe any such amendment will be Included In the bill.

Negro Seeking Court Action ToGeton Ballot LnTLK ROCK. June 17. WV—A suit, to require acceptance of Ne- grors as candidates for Democratic party nominations was filed in j federal court here yesterday. | Judge Thomas C. Trimble set hearing for July 3 on the petition of the Rev. H. H. Gatlin, Negro minister, asking that the Pulaski County Democratic Committee be required to allow him to seek party nomination as a Little nock alderman. Gatlin's filing fee was retused by county party officials. Later the state Democratic committee met and said only the state convention, which doesn't meet until fall, could change a party ruling limiting candidacies to "white electors." Gatlin's suit, which Is backed by the National Association for the Advancement- of Colored People, would enjoin the present or any nuture Pulaski committee from depriving any person of opportunity to become a candidate "on account of race, color, religion^ national origin or any other unconstitutional restriction." Presumably any ruling In the case would have statewide elfect.

Labor and Tax Bills Sparked Movement The real Impetus for organizing the American Guard in Anderson was the attempt to put through the Indiana State Legislature in 1949, a series of taxation and labor laws which the business community viewed with considerable alarm. Few of these proposed bills were passed, since the State Senate was Republican-controlled, and it killed many of the measures introduced in the Democratic-controlled House. 1 Behind this, however, was a long series of events in city government which had stood the town on Its enr. The municipally-owned power plant had been allowed to run down. Mayor Lester McDonald proposed a $6.000.000 bond Issue to build a new power plant. The city already had a tti.x rate of $6.40 per $100—one of the highest In the state—and there wa.s tax-payer protest. It was claimed that a lesser expenditure to Increase distribution facilities, plus purchase of current from private utilities, would make the bond issue unnecessary. The Anderson public school system hart been through long storm a:ul strife. A Citizens Committee had tried to clean up the situation, but its recommendations had thrown out by the mayor.' The whole fracas had wound up in law suits still unresolved. Also, an effort had been made to put over a local Fair Employment Practices Commission by city ordinance, after a similar measure had failed in state legislature. Anderson labor is highly organized.
