But Lawrence Bell, president of Bell Aircraft Corp., had testified he ave Aviation Electric $1,053,000 worth of subcontracting business because Meyers asked him to. And Lamarre had told tile subcommittee he went after Bell subcontracts because Meyers told him they were there to get. Under questioning by Subcommittee Chairman Homer Ferguson, R., Mich., Meyers said that "If Larry Bell says I had mentioned Aviation Electric and had stated the owners were friends of mine, I agree with him." But he-insisted he "never specifically recommended that he give orders to. Aviation Electric." Asked how Lamarre found out about Bell's subcontracts, Meyers said he didn't know, but he added "it's perfectly possible that when I saw Lamarre I mentioned to him that Bell was looking {or subcontractors."

Davis, executive secretary of the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives Indicated today that farmers could learn a lot <inel earn more money—by advertising. Davis told a senate subcommittee that farmers and their products have lost ground "in competing" for a share of the family budget to producers of non-agriculture subcommittee planning a long-range farm program that farmers must operate on a self-help basis in programs of marketing, processing, distribution, conservation and farm credit. "For farmers, free enterprise means inaxium emphasis on self- help and a minimum reliance on government action programs," ne said. Cooperative* are not a "cure- all" for farm problems, Davis said, but they could serve as "peace setters" In improving the welfare of agriculture. Lamarre had testified that a part of Meyers' alleged secret profits was In the form of "expense" payments and the gift of a Cadillac automobile. The subcommittee brought out that Meyers made a false Affidavit about the cnr In 1942. Meyers' explanation was that It was a "routine form." Meyers swore out" the affidavit before a notary public on Jan. 3 1942, in applying for a District of Columbia license for the Cadillac The affidavit stated that Aviation Electric had "paid for and used the cnr before Dec. 31, 1941, the final date on which automobiles could be bought on a free market. A government freeze order went into effect on Jan. 1. "Did the Aviation Electric Company use this blue Cadillac car prior to Jan. 1, 1943?" Ferguson asked. 'No, sir," Meyers replied. "Is that your signature?" Ferguson demanded. "Yes, that is my signature, Mey-* ers said, adding that he considered the affidavit a routine form to get the license and did not give it any attention when he signed it. Meyers said he arranged to get the car in order to accommodate Lamarre who, he said, had telephoned that he needed an automobile because "transportation was getting difficult." Ho said Lamarrc's testimony alxr the car was "just not so." Lamarre had tolci Investigators that Meyers got the car and had him pay for It with company funds. Lamarre said Northwestern Railway Blum Says Reds Are Waging War Premier Designate For France Trying To Save Democracy PARIS, Nov. 21. (U.P "I— Premier Designate loon Blum charged In the National Assembly today that international Communists "have openly declared war on French democracy." j Blum, 76-year-old Socialist, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1947 the Atr Force ofilcer kept It for Ills personal use. Meyers reiterated his denial of having profited from the company and asserted his only Interest was to lend it money to help Lamarre and his wife, Mildred. He. has safd he felt obligated to the couple because of the alleged nve-year "love alTalr" which, the general testified, he curried on with Mrs. LnraniTC with the approval mid acquiescence of her husband. Meyers also defended has wartime margin transactions in government bonds. He said he considered the transactions Investments and not speculations as Ferguson described them. The retired.officer, who was second from the top In Air Force procurement in the latter part of the war, said he once had a capital gains profit of $80,000 or $90,000 oh H.000,000 of government bonds lie and liis wife bought on margin.

The President at a news conference also announced that the resignation of Oen. Robert, Littlejohn as War Assets Administrator will be accepted ns of Nov. 28. Bradley will return to the War Department 13cc. 1 to take advantage of sonic accumulated leave and also to make a first hand survey ol various army headquarters around the country before replacing Eisenhower. The President said that Bradley actually would not take over as chief of staff until Elsenhower departs to become President of Columbia University. ' Asked when this would be, the President said he could not answer and that it was up to Eisenhower. Thus Eisenhower was put Into rather an unusual position of hav- i'ut a designated successor walt- iiijf on deck anr! waiting for Mi planned resignation to take effect. Whether the President's action today would speed Eisenhower's departure from the government remained to be seen. Persons close to Eisenhower had mentioned April 1 as a possible date, but some administration quarters yesterday anticipated that the wartime commander of the allied armies in Europe wotild leave about Feb. 1. It had long been expected that Bradley, "the GI's general," would succeed Elsenhower when the present chief of staff goes.into civilian life. Bradley presumably will take a rest after Dec. 1 and then begin the "breaking In" process of becoming chief. The designations of Bradley and Gates completed the selections or new heads for three of the services —the Army. Navy and Marines. Adm. Chester W. Nlmitz retires shortly in favor of Adm. Louis Denfield us chief of naval operations. There 'L not expected to he any early change in the post of chief of staff of the Air Force, now held by Gen. Carl A. Spaatz.

Some 150.000 citizen soldiers had been recalled to the colors. The assembly chamber was crowded to capacity when Blum spoke.
