Baruch called today for. a "work or fight" law applicable to men and women a l i k e as one of the "minimum" essentials to mobilizing America's "full might" in the event of a future war. The white haired adviser to presidents in two world conflicts declared,, however, that w h i l e , this country faces « future that is "iinrcstful" it is "not alarming." "I sec no war with Russia as an immediate.threat," he asserted 'in an address, read before the graduating class of the Armed Forces' Industrial College. But Baruch cautioned that "with the new instrumentalities of mass destruction, we w i l l not have time to improvise" should war come again. . · I(L Accordingly, he said, this country must.be ready to mobilize its full might, "militarily, economically and spiritually."

Boomer was en route to the Gudrandsdal Valley where he intended to .spend the summer with his Norwegian born wife and their daughter.

"Until some effective interna-. tional .guarantee of security has been established or- resort to war elimanted, we cannot disregard the dangers inherent in developing mass housing in cities," ho said. As for the "vvork-ot'-fight" clause, he. said "the same applies lo all professions, science, callings, crafts, .industrial and agricultural efforts, including labor of ' a l l kinds. In other words, there should be a pool of all our manpower-brains ' find brawn--ready to be tapped at' any moment for war purposes." In his discussion of Russia, Baruch said: "With others of my countrymen, I fell deep irritations, but I do not fear explosions. We have been just and generous but there has been a lack of cooperation on the part o f ' t h o s e whose friendship we solicit. "Perhaps they expect our economic collapse.

It declared that thus far "there has not been a single step" to check rising living costs. Instead, the C.I.O. contended, Congress has "worked in the opposite direction." The labor organization urged immediate creation of a federal investigation board with the ;job of. shedding light "upoh the unwarranted levels of many prices." It said that "by the use of public pressure and exposure of profiteering, we may be able Lo force lower prices." And, the C.I.O. added, if "increased foreign demands (for food, clothing and machinery) and crop failure continue * * " this w i l l require that we re-establish price control and a rationing program." The C.I.O. blast was laid clown hy .Emil Rieve, a C.I.O. vice president, in a statement prepared for the joint congressional committee on President Truman's economic report. This group, which also came in for sharp criticism by Kicve, is studying suggestions on how to stabilise the n a t i o n ' s economy. Ricve reviewed "trends in our economy" which he said are "steps on the i*oad to collapse." He cited "high prices, exorbitant profits, liquidation on savings by low income individuals, the s h i f t to consumer loans, and (lie reduced purchasing power- of the mass of American consumers," he added: "Whether ' the collapse comes within a period of six months or in ·a shorter or longer period of time cannot be predicted with any degree of accuracy. "But it seems to me that the ! factors on t h e ' unfavorable side are so great and of such tremendous magnitude that steps must be taken immediately by this joint committec-in carrying out an economic program which will promote | maximum employment, 'production l a n d purchasing power." Rieve assailed the committee i'or f a i l i n g to submit recommendations by last February 1, as stipulated by law, on the President's economic report:. He said that i f - t h e committee "does not sec fit to comply," then its leaders "should resign so that o t h e r members may be appointed who are willing to cooperate." ' Senator Taft (R-Ohio) is chpir- man of tjie committee. The vice chairman is Representative Wolcott ( R - M i c h . ) . Senator Flanders (R-Vt.) sug- gestcd today that President Truman urge voluntary meal: rationing to h e l p check what the lawmaker called a "really serious" J i v i n g cost spiral. The Vermont Senator told a reporter that flood damage to the midwest corn crop apparently had smashed hopes that food prices m i g h t t u r n downward soon. /Instead, he said, they almost certainly w i l l go up. Flanders, a member of the j o i n t congressional c o m m i t t e e on the economic report which is studying proposals on how to ,keep the American economy on an even keel, rejected as "impractical" a suggestion t h a t it might, become necessary to restore wartime price controls plus voluntary rationing. This possible solution was ottered lo the committee yesterday by Edward A.'O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation.

Cot-oner Arthur Chipp of Kcrhonkson refrained from giving a verdict until after »a autopsy, which he ordered performed on the body. Mrs 1 . Maier, formerly Kath- crinc Stciningcr, and her htn- band, 43, a chef nf thr Jellcr- son, live at 3264 30th street, Astoria, L. f. They had joined th« hotel staff a month ago for the summer season. They had been married only eight months. According to Mr. Maier, an ardent fisherman, he and hia wife arose at 4:20 a. m. and headed for ihe Port. Ben bridge section to angle for trout. Hi- told Slate Troopers Catalano of the B.C.I, and Raymond Dunn that they decided to fish at .separate points along the creek after their 'lines became entangled, and that his wife chose * spot about 400 yards downstream from him at 5 o'clock, informing him as she left that in case she caught .1 fish she'd yell.

A Mrs. Puff, who resides nearby, heard the call for help, and started the alarm t h a i brought Troopers Calalano and Dunn. They grappled from a boat, a l l morning and brought the body up about 10 o'clock.
