Martin, jr. held out hopes that the House may act today on the Senate resolution ordering Secretary of Agriculture Clinton p Anderson to make public a list of big commodity speculators. But Republican Leader Charles A. Halleck indicaed he was doubtt- ful whether there would be time to consider, the measure in the last-minute adjournment shuffle Another top Republican also hinted the House may sidestep the matter for the tlmo being. The Seriate last night approved a resolution ordering Anderson to turn over the list to Congress and make public the names. The resolution requires approval. Martin was asked If there |. danger the resolution might be f/eldetrackcd in the House's efforts to clean up r its remaining business to members could [;et started home on their holiday vacations. "I certainly hope not," Martin replied. "I would like to see the resolution brought up and passed." House Has Separate Probe There were some signs, however, that the House may prefer to •tand pat on its own new Investi- Rt\ting committee headed by Rep. August H. Andersen, R. Minn. The special seven-member group was set up to make Its own check into commodity speculation It Is not involved in Andersen's iquabble with Senate investigators in which the agriculture secretary was the victor in having his way that a joint resolution be passed before he would reveal names.' Secretary Anderson, however, presumably would be no more willing to give the House group his list of names than he was to hone It over to the senators yesterday The House committee could make Its own Investigation o £ the com or to Ifttt'on^the Semite resolution before quitting for Christmas "still is in the dubious sta "I don't know how we can lose even if we* don't pass the resolution right away." he said. "We Btill have Rep. Andersen's committee which should be ready to oi>en jt.s investigations when Congress returns in .January." Meanwhile, Edwin \v.

The line stays busy the biggest pnrt of the time and we have to tell them to be good and they will hear from him Christmas." Faith, who is the daughter of Mr and Mrs. W. o. Penny of 100 Sast Cherry St., dialed the operator and asked to speak to Santa Claus. Tha operator, whose name was not revealed, tried Santa's number but as usual It was busy. So, the operator rang the next best number, that of Santa's helper here hi BlythevUle who took Faith's Christmas Jfst and relayed It on to the North Pole. But telephone officials arc today advising kiddies that the helper is no longer here. He left shortly after the call and went to join St. Nick In his Northern hideaway.

Dec 1G (UP) Congress raced the clock today m is efforts to provide funds for President Truman's emergency foreign relief program. With Congress scheduled to end tonight, the Senate was called Into session an hour earlier than usual Chairman styles Bridges of the Appropriations Committee predicted quick Senate approval for an emergency $570,000,000 fuel and famine relief bill to aid France China, Italy and Austria. This Is' apart from rr.H^. m Say Bridges' committee . assistance : under the Which Caplto1 First, commodity prices have boomed like nothing else has boomed in tills country since suckers thought they were getting rich In Cities Service and Montgomery Ward stock way back in the late 1920's. Ilor Instance: Week Wheat per bushel $3.25 Corn per bushel 2.19 Cotton per pound .37 Year Ago $235 1.57 .33 , Meantime, on the strictly regu- laled securities exchanges stocks have been steady. The price level of stocks on the New York Stock Exchange last week was substantially what It was a year ago. Factors such as the short, corn crop have of course affected the grain market more than the stock mar- get. Harold E. Stassen nnd some others contend, however, that strict stock market regulations have diverted speculators to the commodity markets where they do not have to put up so much money to trade In a big way. The further charge' is that government Insiders are among the commodity market speculators and that they appear improperly to have had advance ln- iormation of government purclms- es by which to guide their own op- crutions. lhe (peculator list Is a hot potato. There are lm|illrallon* thai among the gamblers are member! of Congress—perhapi Republican members. The chnncej are certainly pretty good that some wealthy Republicans who are not In official life will be listed, it is not Illegal for officials or others to go into the commodity markets. But If officials profited by inside knowledge there will be trouble. Stasscn is n candidate for He- publican presidential nomination. He stands to gain plenty If administration big shots are caught In the market, and the Truman administration would ba badly hurt. All of this has the makings ot a political scandal If the charges can be proved. They will be proved or disproved by publication of the list or big commodity market operators which is reported regularly as a matter of law by the Commodity Exchange Administration to the secretary of agriculture. Cause fur Much Debate One of the questions hotly debuted is whether Secretary ot Agriculture Clinton p. Anderson should not have made the speculator list public long ago. The com- modity exchange act which requires the report* has certain safeguards for tha business secret* of commodity market traders. But It also says the secretary has this authority: "To communicate to the proper committee or officer of any contract market nnd lo publish the full facts concerning any Irnnslllon or ism GOP Bill to Curb Marshall's Plan" For Europe Urged To Forestall War Inflation Passed, Sent to Truman President Expected To Sign Measure Pushed by Opponents WASHINGTON, Dec.

Stasscn Starts Stampede It was the demand by Harold Btasscn, Republican aspirant for president, for a check of Pauley's commodity holdings that set off the congressional investigation. Pauley said Jenner is wrong He said "I have never at any "time In my life used any government position or any inside information or any information not available to the public for my personal gain." Both House and Senate members are anxious to (ind out if any government "insiders"—either ad- j ministration officials or congressmen—profited in the commodity kfiarkets. This Is why the Senate (^appropriations committee asked Secretary Anderson for his list of traders. Anderson insisted, however that he entire Congress must take responsibility for ripping away what he considered the presnt Igal rc- miirement that the names be kept secret.
