(UT) '—Iran's chief of gonem! slafl reported today that ffovern- mcnt troops pushing inVo Azuci'baijan, Ijuffor province bordcriiif* on Russia, .'>a(i advanced 25 miles, inflicting' heavy casualties on the Aser" bai.jani and capturing many prisoners. Premier Alimcd Ghvam announced Hint he was sending Iroops into Azerbaijan to supervise tlic forthcoming parliamentary elections. The government said the first Iroops crossed the provincial frontier last night. Nearly 24 hours after the first crossing, the chief of staff a general advance continued In all sectors. Tehran authorities had repotted earlier that their units: were massed along the entire lengtti of the Azerbaijan frontier. The greatest advance into Azerbaijan was attributed to a column moving out of the Takab area on Ihc frontier. A penetration of 25 miles in less than a full day Indicated (hat whatever opposition 111* troops were meeting was spotty. Tlic chief of staff said the capture of Mlaneh. first major town in the line of march, was Imminent. It lies in Azerbaijan some 30 miles north of the frontier. Government troops already had seized control of the "main por lion" or the Ohaflankuh Mountains which dominate most of the border area. Troops Supported by Plants Four columns of government troops, supported by artillery and bombers, struck across the mountainous frontier last night and this morning. Government reix>rts said they had captured 13 frontier townships In the first hours. Tlic scci-nutonomous Azerbaijan rcKimc of Jaafar Pishcv'ari announced by radio from Tabriz that its troops were restating stoutly Pishcvari's regime, known gs the Democrats.^ yas. csta,bli 5 h<;d. while Russian troops •occupied 'Aicrbni- jan to handle the wartime move- mcntmcnt of American lend lease supplies. Pishcvari's radio denounced the attack as foreign-inspired. It called Ghavam an "Americophllc and servant of those who told atomic secrets." The Azerbaijan rcslme which Is very friendly toward Russia, has been bound to the central government by a slender tic hut has refused to allow Ghavam's troops to enter its province. Ghavani said th c invasion was lo enable central troops to supervise parl'imcnlary elections. He maintained they had this right because Azerbaijan was part of Iran Azerbaijan lies at the northwcs lei 11 corner of Iran; between the main section of Iran and the southern frontier or thc Sovlc Union. (The Moscow newspaper Pra'^a said yesterday that Ghavanrs g|r ernment was following "a. danger mis path pointed out to him bj foreign quarters" in sending troups into Azerbaijan.)

Dec. 10.—President Truman, hard at work on lis state of thc union message to he. new Congress, had before him oday a basketful of suggestions how to cure the nation's labor roubles. '. . 'Between now and Jan. 6, Mr. Truman will examine numerous ecommcndalions and come up with a new labor policy. His message s expected to go to Congress on hat date. •Persons familiar wth his way of hlnklng said the President had \o intention of asking for any punitive measures against labor or "or any legislation which, in his view, would manage the labor movement. Instead. Mr. Truman reportedly was thinking about new legislative ways to define labor's responsibility 0 thc public and thc government. The President will work out his lew policy in ' consultation wMi ils top labor advisers. Together ;hey will examine various Ideas'^ it forth, particularly in the wake of :he recent coal strike. But thc decision will be up to the chief executive as to just what to ask of the Republican-controlled Coti- jress. Preparation of thc president's state of the union message is thc .op.order of business at the White House these days. As far <ts labor legislation goes. Mr. Truman tjas \ot reached a final decision. Tlic President will take only one brief respite from his work on the message and the new budget. That, will be for a few days around Christmas when he speeds home to Missouri to be with his 94-year- old mother and other members of nis family. Meantime, thc White House was getting what attaches described as 1 very heavy and approving rc- ponsc lo the President's^ no-rc- trrat position in the court fight With John L- Ijowis, head of thc United Mine Workers.

(UP) The Commodity Exchange Authority. whl:h regulates all commodity Iradlnp. today takes up the question of whether cotton speculators should lie limited to 30.000 bnlcs of cotton on any one futures exchange. Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson strongly urged the re- strirtions after the cotton market collapsed in mid-October. The break sent prices plummctlni! down from a 2G-yc:.r high of 38.9.1 cents a pound on O;t. 2 to 2D cents by mid-month. The Agriculture Department later snirl that October. 1016. would be known as "thc black* month In the history of cotton" and Anderson recommended the trading curbs to prevent repetitions. Joseph M Mchl, who mini'/inters tlic commodity exchange act said that although the hearing normally would require only one tiny it may take longer because of the tremendous interest in the proposal by the exchanges and cotton brokers. FoItowiiiK today's hearincs, Mehl will make a formal recommendation to the Commodity Exchange Commission which then must decide whether thc limitations should be imposed. The commission consists of Anderson, Secretary of Commerce W. AVI ell Harrinia:i and Attorney Gen eral Tom C. Clark. The fact Hint Anderson suggested the trading curbs increases tremendously the changes that they, would .lie put nto effect. Traders now may den! in. or hold up to 30COO bnle.s of cotU'n on any one future on any of thc three bli? cotton market;; al New York. New Orleans and Chicago. Permits Knormnus Holdings Tills means that a trader now ay hold or deal in I80.00D bales n each of the three futures markets, since there nrc six active fu- urcs or months. Anderson's propo- al would limit holdings to 30.000 balr.-s in each market for thc entire six futures. Cotton normally is traded In six futures or months. This means that each trader can hold ns much as L80.WJO bales on each exchange tolaj-oT ;510;ctI9: baits''of cotton This could have a drastic effect on prices if he were forced to sell out Under Anderson's proposal, traders would be limited to 30,000 bales in all futures on a single exchange or a total of only 90,00! jSle.s on all tlncc exchanges. Anderson said this automatically would cut the risk of upsetting tlic market. He said the limits would not apply to genuine hedging transactions in which a trader agrees lo deliver cotton at a future date at a certain price and immediately contracts for enough cotton to cover :iis commitments. It also will not apply to cotton purchased'for manufacturing purposes. ;—, t/., SINGLE COPIES FIVtf CENTO Kovonwmenl oi' Confessions Link Columbians With Hitler-Like Scheme in U.S. , By El> I.IUIK.KK United Press Staff Correspondent ATLANTA, (in., Dec. lj).~C!corffia Attorney Om'nil I ';!"rT nt V<"' < ," )k tod.ty itmiomicjd i-oiifcssions l,y Iwu members' ol the Columbians, Inc., wlilcli implicated Hit- in a Hillei'-likc suhuniu to take over tlie United SJiUeH. •* The confessions were nmde In »i , National Income At Ail-Time High Economists Estimate 165 Billions for 1946; Pro-War Records Fall WASHINGTON.
