Faci"gNewUfe DOUGLASS BOARD For (rop Storage ATOMIC PROBE WASHINGTON, June 2 Con- Kreii« today ptwed a compromise bill to provide critically needed storage facilities l^r the nation’s bumper %heat crop. The compromise, which broke a long deadlock, was approved by both Senate and House and sent on to President Truman for his signature. The legislation gives the Commodity Credit corporation power to pr<^ide storage facilities on crops— especially grain—on which the CCC makes loans to maintain crop price nupportJi. Orain must be in storage Vo qualify for government loan. The action came aii a storage crisis wais reported developing In the soiithw'est. Earlier, the Agriculture department had asked the Maritime commission for some laid-up liberty ships to use as emergency storage bins. Coincidentally, Secretary Brannan announced the Agriculture department had started work on control measures designed to cut the 1950 wheat crop as much as 25 percent under this year's yield—likely to be of near-record proportions.

He asked Buckmaster, whom he termed a “distinguished visitor,” to "extend greetings” to the council. E>elegates heard Buckmaster quietly and gave him a brief round of applause at his close. Buckmaster declared. “We don't dare let the union fall into the hands of unscrupulous people.” The three-day council session Is ; a semi-annual meeting. States rep- i resented are: Oklahoma, Kansas. Nebraska, Mi.ssouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois, j By a vote of 7-5. with one member I ab.staining, the union’s executive i board ousted Buckmaster at Philadelphia on May 24, The board sus- I tained charges of Robert Garber, president of the Pott^town, Pa., local i of the union, who had accused Buck, master of malfeasance in office. ! * ♦ ♦ BUCKMASTER. REGARDED as a leader of the union's right wing , faction, said at that lime he was ' "unfairly removed.” He said he would seek re-election at the union's international convention in Toronto this Pall. Buckmaster became president of I t-he union #;n 1945 and hia tenttre- had been marked by an absence of i major strikes in the rubber industry. Delegates to the Toronto convention will be elected by the local unions but union members here said they believed Bucki master hoped to win enough 1 friends at the Des Moines meet- 1 ing to swing the national conj ventlon balance of ' ower In hi« j favor. i Support of tile midwestern area, j which has about 23,000 URW mem- i bers, was regarded as vital if Buckmaster is to win return to office. - ■ i (Continued From Page One) charges vehemently.

Mrs. Esther Stauffer, principal at Colebrookdale, had told the complaint session of friction between her and Mrs. Trethewey. Warren Fr^ln, board president, said, ‘they’re still angry at each other.” But other board members were opposed to beginning a general exchange of teachers between buildings. The board also received formal notification from the State Tax Equaliz^ation board that the township’s assessed value. $652.600, was only 26.47 percent of the market value of township real estate, $2,465.395. a lower percentage than the county-wide one.
