TUESDAY, JULY K, 1950 BLYTHEVILLB, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS 'ACE NTNB A-Bomb, Cold War Run Poor Third in British Proposals LONDOH, July 2S. (/Pj—The'atom* bomb mnd the cold war run a poor third to wage hikes and housing In proposed by local British La- farty units for Inclusion In the new platform. The 300 suggested resolution! were drafted before the outbreak of the Korean war for wnslderalion at the party's annual conference Oct. J-«. They were released by Labor chiefs yesterday. Only 27 of the proposed planks corn* under the heading "foreign 'policy and war danger." Mostly they indicate a grass roots yearning for peace and run counter to warning! of party officials that defense •pending must be hiked "however unpopular it may be." Many of the rank and file domestic resolutions expressed doubl thtt' the government's wage freeze policy could be continued In the face "of Inflationary pressures. Some W resolutions dealt with wages am living costs, 43 with housing and about 25 with nationalization o basic Industries. Out of Cold War Some of the foreign policy pro posala call for Britain to mov closer to Russia, to get out of th cold war and to ban the atom bomb They were made public on th eve of today's meeting of the per tnanent council of the AtlantI Pact nations to speed rearmamen West. local Norwood Cabor Part criticized the presence of American airmen and B-29s In Britain "an the proposal for storage in Britai of American atom bombs." The electrical trade unions suggested a big five conference including Communist China to draft a peace pact which would "provide the millions of common people throughout the world with a new hope that war can be prevented." Friendly Policies The Uxbridge Labor Party asked the government "not to take part In the cold war, but Instead to pur- aue a policy based upon friendship towards the Soviet and its Allies as well ai towards the United States." The Clrencester and Tewkesbury Labor Party urged the government to "end the resent foreign policy, with its Inherent subservience to the capitalist - Imperialist United States of America and to seek closer relations with the Socialist countries of the world." Other resolutions proposed that the government lead a disarmament movement, lift east-west trade bar- Vier», abolish conscription, ' slash arms spending, and ban the atom bomb, germ warfare and other means of mass slaughter.

Truman Aslu Stock Market Control Two years ago the President proposed that CKA be given control over margins and speculation, but Congress refused to grant It. Now the President is asking for it again. Resumption of credit controls will probably mean a return to something like Federal Reserve Board's regulation ol wartime credit. Federal housing administration credit controls will be aimed not only at limiting mortgages, but also In channeling scarce building materials Into defense production. Just what a "production loan guarantee" will be, as called for by the President, remains to be seen. During the last war, Federal Reserve Board had a V-loan program, in which il guaranteed loans on contracts made by Army, Navy and Air Force. The new idea seems to be to channel all these loans Into private banking Institutions, with guarantees made by Reconstruction Finance Corporation. The way in which the now "de- fense production act" wai put together la not without interest. National Security Resources Board now headed by Stuart W. Symington, has been drafting mobilization legislation ever since it was created. It has had recommendations from all government agencies, to meet all possible situations. When the White House stnff, under Presidential counsel Charles V. Murphy, was called on to draft a new mobilization law to meet the Korean limited emergency. It was possible to pick various proposals and put them together In relatively short time. This explains why the new composite sent to Congress by the White House came as such a complete surprise to many of the agencies. This was not the all-out mobilization bill they h»d been looking for.

Following announcement of the renewed drive for civil defense precautions, home secretary chuter Ede told the House he doubted whether any country is able to drop a large number of atomic bombs anywhere.
