(UP)_ The government today asked Congress for emergency power to buy up entire farm crops when bad crops threaten the domestic economy or the export program. The request was made by Carl C. Farrinelon. assistanl administrator of the Agriculture Department's production and marketing admin- I istration, to the Joint Senate-House economic committee. He said that even this bi'oad authority may not be enough to curb Inflation and Insure foreign aid and repeated President Trumaii's request for authority to impose rationing and price ceilings. "In the event of an emergency situation such as mighl be brought about by an extremely short wheat crop, for example, the powers should be such as to :nakc it possible for the government to become the sole j buyer of the crop in a manner sim- ' liar to that which was used during the war with respect to soybeans, peanuts and wool." Farrington said. Farrington also said that to "insure the maximum saving of grain and at the same tune combat inflation, authority for rationing and price ceilings should be provided." Farrington presented the government's request to the joint Senate- House Economic Committee while the American Bankers Association hit at anothei-'presidential request before another congressional committee. The association accused the Truman administration of making "glib" use of statistics in asking Congress lo revive installment buying controls to help check inflation. The association challenged President Truman's figures showing the rise in consumer credit. The association said it opposed restoration of the curbs. .

Nov. 24. (UP)—Secretary of State George C. Marshall is flatly opposed to all suggestions (or a separate peace with Germany even If the Big Four council of foreign ministers fails again to reach agreement, It was learned today. "Proposals that the Western powers go ahead with the German peace treaty without Russia are lantus- tlc." officials close to Marshall said. "Such suggestions are unrealistic and wholly inconsistent with the basic objective of American policy —to restore eventually all o! Europe as a community of nations. "A separate peace would divide Europe forever. Our |»llcy eventually .should lead to the reuniting of Europe, as It has been known for centuries." The Big pour meeting opens tomorrow afternoon. The delegates held final meetings among themselves today to plot strategy and tactics. It wns learned that Gen. Lucius D. Clay, u. s. military governor in Germany, agrees with Marshall and opposes any policy which would create a formal break with Russia over Germany at this time. Clay, who arrived yesterday, now believes that after more than two years of four-power occupation of Germany, time at long last Is on ihc side of the Western powers. Some Want Separate Treaty Marshall's views In opposition to talk of a separate peace treaty—or even to proposals to set up a separate government for Western Germany—are In sharpest contradiction to tbose of some of the most influential persons in the United States. Former President Herbert Hoover, Republican elder statesman, was the first prominent American to call for i. separate peace with Germany. His proposal was made after he had completed a special survey of Germany for President Truman. Former Secretary of State James P. Byrnes also believes-the United States should threaten Russia with a separate peace. But he is confident that the Russians would giv* in. In his recently published memoirs, "Speaking..Frankly." Byrnes suggested that the U. S. prepare to use "measures of last resort" to drive the Russians out of Germany if in the end they don't give in. Senate President Arthur H. Van- dcnbcrg lE.-Mich.) was the last prominent American to propose a separate peace if this council fails. He is the most powerful man in the Senate on foreign affairs. Marshal! is prepared, however, to resist pressure for .such policy. He is convinced it is not only unrealistic but also impractical.

She said Masoy had worked at the Todd shipyards In Brooklyn until three years ago when he became ill. "He was nervous and had an upset stomach," she said. "A week ago he said maybe a trip would do him good. We got $210 from a loan company. Saturday he said he was going to California for a short rest, and the last I saw of him was at the airlines terminal. "He never took any trips before.
