Reds-in-Gov't Inquiry Heads For Early End But McCarthy, Who Started It All, To Continue Prohe WASHINGTON, June 29 (AP) The tumultuous Communist 'inquiry which a Senate committee has been conducting since -last March appeared headed today for an early end. There was no sign, however, of any "cease fire" intentions on the part of Republican Senator McCarthy, whose charges that the State Department harbors Communists and fellow travelers touched off the investigation. On the contrary, the Wisconsin senator said a quick wind-up of the Democratic-controlled committee investigation would serve only to empnasize wnat ne termed a need for a new inquiry. Calling the current one a "whitewash op eration," McCarthy added that in any event he plans to continue his own private Communist probe. The Senate foreign relations subcommittee which began look ing into McCarthy's charges last March 8 voted three to two late yesterday to prepare a report on its stormy inquiry. The vote split was on straight party lines, with the two Repub lican members Senators Lodge of Massachusetts and Hickenloop er of Iowa-7-opposed to writing a report at this time. .The three Democrats who voted for tackling the job immediately are Chairman Tydings of Maryland and Senators McMahon, of Connecticut and Green of Rhode Island. Green, it was learned, made the motion, The closed meeting where the vote took place had scarcely ended when a dispute broke out as to what kind of a report had been authorized. Tydings told a news conference the report will be a preliminary document. Hickenlooper sharply disputed that in talking to reporters. Winters No Milder, Scientists Report SCHENECTADY, N. Y. (UP) Our winters are not much milder than they used to be, General Electric research scientists report Over the past 30 years or so the average temperature seems to have risen only about 2 or 3 degrees. While we have had few winters recently when snowfall has been raither light, there have feen others when it was quite heavy. There is no proof that our win ters are not wnat they were in ' the old days." Memories of deep snow years ago often go back to childhood recollections, arid snow banks to a small child certainly seem much higher than they do to a grown up. Also, it used to be the practice to pack down the snow on roads with a big snow roller, and it might remain well into spring. Now, with modern plows and other equipment roads are bare almost immediately after a snow storm. NO FREEZE POWER WASHINGTON, June 29 (AP) The government has no power to seize, freeze, or ration any commodities, and has not even discussed the possibility of asking voluntary curbs, a top official said today.

Ferguson Calls On' T aft To Resign COLUMBUS, June 29 (AP) State Auditor Joseph T. Ferguson, Democrat candidate for U. 3. senator, today called for the resignation of U. S. Sen. Robert A. Taft, his Republican opponent, "in the interest of the security and defense of these United States." V Ferguson made the request in a speech prepared for delivery tonight at a dinner of the Warren County Democratic Women's Club in Lebanon, O. The Democrat candidate based his demand on Senator Taft's statement asking the resignation of Secretary of State Dean Ache-son. "Senator Taft's attitudes and actions have weakened our efforts being made within the United Nations to dispose of this new threat to world peace by the Soviet Union," said Ferguson referring to the situation in Korea. "Therefore, since Taft's World War II polices have been reversed by the history of our time and in the interest of the security and defense of these United States, I demand that Senator Taft, with his head still buried in the sands of reaction, serve his country by resigning from the Senate of the United States." Ferguson's office released a digest of Ferguson's Lebanon speech as a statement in mid- morning, although the state auditor is not scheduled to speak until 6 p. m. tonight. Prehistoric Burial ( Sites Discovered SINGEN, Germany (UP) The recent discovery of a nearly 4,000-year-old human skeleton has furnished proof of human set tlement here from the early Stone Age to shortly before the Roman conquests. Dr. Wolfgang Kimmig, chief of the state bureau for prehistoric research in Freiburg, said the discovery had "unanticipated scientific importance." The discovery was made neaT Lake Constance, together with the excavation of ten other ancient graves.. - According to experts the exca vation sites here are the only ones in central Europe" through which human history since .4000 B. C. can be traced with continuity. The 4,000-year-old Bronze Age skeleton, most recently found, is that of a woman. She had been buried in a sitting position, facing east 'and had a ring, necklace, a large needle, and two ankle-hoops, all made of bronze, with her in the grave. The other burial . places re vealed urns dating back 3000 years. Gradual Punishment Urged for Young BAR HARBOR, Me. (UP) Punish your children gradually, not all at once. That's the advice of Dr. Emil Fredericson of the Roscoe B. Jack son Memorial Laboratory. He bases his suggestion on the results of experiments with pup pies. , Puppies isolated in a small box for 10 minuties yelped more than those put in the box in a series of 10 distributed one-minute periods. The puppies who took their punishment in one large dose yelped an average of 1,103 times whereas those whose punishment was gradual averaged only 347 yelps. Dr. Fredericson said the experi ments indicate "that experience in emotionally disturbing situations can be much more severe if the situation is imposed on the organism without giving it a chance to recover occasionally.' .... .V.v Soviet Claim (Continued jrom Page 1) presence of Nationalist China in the U.N. the legal issue has been debated. . Soviets Maintain Stand Before each walkout Hussia has announced she will regard as il legal all actions taken while Nationalist China is represented. The U. S. and other delegations have sharply challenged the Russian view. They maintain that all U.N. organs are competent to act both with Nationalist China pres ent and with Russia absent. As for the security council, the U.N. charter provides that oa all major issues there must be seven affirmative votes for approval with all the five big veto powers concurring. It has been the accepted practice, however, not to consider ab stentions as vetoes. The charter 'does not say specifically that all members or even all of the Big Five must be present. Effects of Rail Strike Spread CHICAGO, June 29 CAP) Effects of an A.F.L. Switchmen's walkout became more widespread as the strike against five big roads entered its fifth day. There was no hint of a settlement from government mediators. At' least 47,100 men are idle, with more due to be lopped off payrolls today, and additional thousands tomorrow if the strike continues. Some 4,000 members of the! Switchmen's Union of North America left their posts Sunday morning on the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific, The Great Northern, The Chicago Great Western, The Denver and Rio Grande Western, and The Western Pacific Railroads. .

The issue was one of many that might upset plans of Senate Democratic leader Lucas of Illi nois and other congressional lead ers to wind up law-making July 31. A strategy session late yester day of the Senate Republican policy committee produced the new move, apparently timed to the U. S. ultimatum against Com munism in the Far Pacific. Chairman Taft (R.-Onio) of the Republican policy makers told reporters that the proposal to require the registration and restriction of Communists in this country is "sufficiently important" to ask that it be added to the list of "must legislation." Taft said Republicans would support a Communist registration bill reported favorably more than two months ago by a 12 to 1 vote of the Senate judiciary committees. They may propose some changes. Builds Boat in Cellar, Can't Get It Out M ALONE, N. Y. (UP) Kenneth Boyea spent the winter building a boat in the cellar of his home. , When it was finished, he found he couldn't get the boat out the cellar door. Boyea and his father, Wallace, found they had miscalculated by a few important inches.

Arms Proposal Might Bring New Dispute Senator Suggests Aid To South Korea Be Considered Separate WASHINGTON, June 29 (AP) A proposal that military aid for embattled South Korea be considered apart from . the $1,222,500,000 foreign arms bill threatened today io get the Senate into new controversy. The proposal came from Senator Cain (R.-Wash.), armed services committeeman who said more in- j formation was needed in view of the Communist invasion of South Korea. Indications were, .however, that the new dispute would fall far short of that touched off yesterday by Senator Taft (R.-Ohio,) the Senate Republican policy leader. Taft simultaneously endorse! President Truman's intervention in the, Korean war and, in a blistering attack on administra tion foreign policy, called for the resignation of Secretary of State Acheson. He told the Senate that any secretary of state who has been "so reversed by his superiors and whose policies have precipitated the danger of war had better resign and let someone else administer the program to which he was, and perhaps still is, so violently opposed." Democratic Leader Lucas, of Illinois, replied hotly that speech es such as Taft had made are "playing directly into the hands of the Kremlin." Lucas said that dwelling on past mistakes, or presumed mis takes, tended to divide the country instead of giving it unity in the present emergency. Although Taft criticized President Truman for not going to Congress for authority to aid Communist beleaguered South Korea and Formosa, he said he thought the decision was right, adding: ' "I see no choice except to back up wholeheartedly and with every available resource the American men in our armed forces who have been moved into Korea." Taft's speech was made after the Senate had taken unanimous action to extend the peacetime draft act for one year. The vote was 76 to 0.

Corporations make the tax 21 percent on the first $25,000 of net income and 41 percent on all over $25,000. This would- mean in creased taxes only for those cor porations earning over $167,000 a year, and reductions for cor porations earning between $5,000 and $167,000. The present corpo ration tax is 21 percent on the first $5,000; 23 percent on the next $15,000; 25 percent on the next $5,000; 53 percent on income be tween $25,000 and $50,000 and 38 percent on all corporations earn ing more than $50,000. Other Provisions Other major provisions of the bill, plugging "loopholes" and making other tax law revisions, include: A 10 percent withholding tax on corporation and co-op dividends (creating no new tax obligations but intended to catch people who now fail to report their dividend income) . . . $170,000,000.

'arcnts Held To Blame If Comics Corrupt NORMAN. OKLA. (UP) Par ents probably are to blame, if children get bad ideas from comic books, a University of Oklahoma librarian contends. Mrs. Mary H. Marable, associate professor of library science and a mother herself, says the effect of comic books on juvenile delin quency is the strongest factor against them. However, she believes. "In good homes, children can take them in stride. It's in the neglected home that the danger lies." Mrs. Marable believes one of the major faults of comic books that they "cheat children of their heritage of good literature. Young- sters today have no time for the' Bible, Aesops Fables, folklore and other literary works. "They grow to adulthood virtu ally illiterate, unable to comprehend even the newspapers, which are so filled with literary allusions.' ALL WRAPPED IP BAY CITY, Mich.

Cowboy Dick Fairchild does some high and fancy riding to stay : j Will Truman I Order Troops :Into Korea? Some Units in Japan Are Alerted To Be Ready for Action WASHINGTON, June 29 (AP) President Truman was appar- ently confronted today with a de- cision on whether to order Amer- ican troops, as well as combat planes and warships, into the f iu save ouuuiciu rvuic4 rom Communist conquest. I A Dossiblf further rnmmifmmt : of American forces was indicated jby a report from Tokyo saying some U. S. troop units in Japan had been alerted to be ready for 1 action. Highly placed informants here said late last night that no decision to put them in action had yet been made. It was also said that when a decision was made either for or against using troops, it would be taken by the President himself. Speculation of some authorities that he might act today rested on fact Southern Korean forces, even with the he!p thus far Eivcn bv lhe ir:.ed states. have been unable to check the communist advance. Moreover the swift sweep of the tank-led Red columns indicated that the time for further American action, if it is taken, may be relatively short. A Tokyo dispatch said top authorities there believed American troop action could not be long delayed if South Korea was to be saved.
