In the House, support for consumer price controls and rationing was so strong that leaders were reported concerned over their chances U> sidetrack those proposals in favor of action of Mr. Truman's milder requests. In the senate, backers of tlie drastic controls lorccd the banking committee to abandon plans for action on the Truman propasats until Monday, so the all-out cont'rols can b« put Int shape to be offered either as an amendment or as a substitute.

At (he very, Maybank quoted him us .saying, wajfe- price controls and rntioning should be written into law on a standby basis. That would give Mr Truman power to invoke the controls, out only when he felt they were necessary. While the President told his news conference Thursday that broad consumer controls are not yet needed, one capital official who usually Is in touch with the White told a reporter the President would be glad to get the added controls on • standby basis. Mr. Truman's council of economic advisers Ls reported to feel that the current nationwide wave of buying is a "speculative flurry" which will die down without the need for drastic action. But Baruch was quoted as saying that the priorities and allocation controls sought by the President "will not stop further price rises." "Priorities and price controls are Ilk* Siamese twins," Baruch said in his conversation with Maybank. 30 Legionnaires To Attend District Meet at Lepanto A delegation of approximately 30 Legionnaires of Dud Cason Post 24 of BlythevlUe will attend the American Legion's Fifth Dost r lei meet- Ing in Lepanto tomorrow.

More lhan 3,000 died before Ihe blazing guns of the U.S. First Cavalry and 25th Infantry Divisions. How many Reds were wounded none could tell. An assessment of North Korean losses to date listed 31.000 Reds killed and wounded, 170 tanks destroyed and 100 others damaged. A spokesman at MacArthur's headquarters called the figures "conservative." Allied war planes, land-based and from carriers, roamed dripping Korean skies unchallenged, raining more destruction on the enemy, his transport and supply centers. News of reinforcements from Okinawa, American airbase island in the Byukys south of Japan, was reported reliably but unofficially. They were not mentioned by General MacArthur's' release. However, the official release did report "an American roadblock" have enlisted for four years duty in the United Slates Air Force, Staff Sergeant Arthur Bahn of Die Dlytheville Recruiting office announced today. The men were inducted in Little Rock Friday and have been sent to Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Tex. checked a southern coastal thrust at Ponegye. 5E> miles west of Pusan— vita! southeast port supplying the Allied holding action.

Counterattacking Hulls Counterattacking units of the U.S. First Cavalry and 25th Infantry Friday night on the central front lr- the critical Hwanggan sector. Tiie ferocity of the Communist nss;uilt was indicated by MacArthur's report that more than 2,500 Reds were killed by the First Cavalry Division. More than 800 North Korean dead were counted in front of the 21th Regimental Combat Team of the 25th Division. War Correspondent Tom Lambert of the Associated Press reported from the First Cavalry sector that American forces made an orderly '.vithdrawal from the mud-hut town of Hwnn»°an Saturday, then sent patrols back in atid found no Reds. Hwanggan is on the central front eight miles northeast of Yongdong and 19 miles northwest of the U.S. supply and communications center of Kumchon. Correspondent Lambert said the ! withdrawal permits a consolidation i of positions. A heavy U.S. artillery barrage was laid down around deserted Hwanggan Saturday afternoon as the Reds brought up an imposing array of guns. AP Correspondent Don Whitehead earlier had reported a stabilizing of tlie line there with a U.S. counter- thrust. Negro Church Plans fellowship Service A fellowship service sponsored jointly by the True Light M. B (Negro) Church and the First Bap- list Chinch of Helena will be held tomorrow at 11:30 ft.m. at the Trne LiRlH Church, Rev. L. D. Daven- port announced today, Rev. Z. E. Johnson of Helena will deliver the morning message. Luncheon will be served In tlie church cafettrin at 1:30 o'clock and members of the First Baptist Church will present a musical and talent program at 2:30. The program will be open to the public. EDSON Continued from page 4 [hat the two weren't seated together at official gatherings, although at that time Governor Skinner was responsible to secretary of the Navy Francis P. Matthews, and not to Secretary of Interior Oscar Chap- uan. Nothing happened to change the schedule of transfer until after the North Koreans attacked on June 25. Then Secretary Johnson put up :o the President a proposal lo delay mailers indefinitely. Secretary Shapman demurred on an indefin- :tc delay. They compromised on n 30-day postponement. So the transfer may go ihrouph okay soon, unless cither or both of two things happen. If ihe Senaic unexpectedly balks on passage of :hc Guam organic act or appropriations for the civilian government it will be no tlice. Or if the Defense Department or the Navy asks lor further delay and the President approves, again no dice. This latter possibility Is the more likely. Only reason given publicly for further delay of the governmental transfer is that it would avoid confusion in time of crisis. But the actual transfer of government has ill been made during the past ten months. All that remains is the formality. Crist of Naval Cnvcrnmrnl Hljh There is an economy angle in making the transfer, too. Cost of Naval 'government on Guam has been over S3.000.000 a year Governor Skinner made a hit with congressional appropriation committees when lie came back to Washington and said the Job could lie done for S2.000.000. Congress showed its appreciation by cutting down that amount STfiO.OOO further. Governor Skinner says he can meet Die cut by increasing local revenues. Also Gram Is 1500 miles from Manila, Tokyo and Formosa, K la In no Immediate danger zone, ouam is still an Important Naval and air base, however. Navy's lop man on Guam today Is Rear Admiral Osborne B. Hardison, who recenlly relieved Rear Admiral Edward C. Ewen as commander of Marianas. Navy really controls Guam because no ship can touch there and no person can land without Navy clearance. Transfer of government ttaiK Navy to civilian authorities on ti£ other Marianas, American Samoa and the trust territory Is now scheduled for July I, 1051. Navy has never been very enthusiastic about this transfer of authority either, although It has all but abandoned its base on American Samoa. Even if Naval government Ls replaced by civilian government on these Pacific islands, it would still be possible to Impose military government or martial law by presidential order, in an emergency. That is what was done in Hawaii during the last war. But it didn't work very well, and as soon as passible, local government was given back to the people.
