WKUNHSDAY, JANUAKY 8, 1!M7 Byrnes Accuses Polish Politicians British and Soviets Urged to Join U. S. In Making Reprimand •WASHINGTON. Jan 8 (UP) — The United Slates accused the Polish sovermneiH yesterday of fail- Ing to fulfill its promise lo arrange for free unfettered elections. It appealed to the Soviet Union and Great Britain lo join in ciill- '• 'his violation to Poland's at- tciuioji ' i a "most insistent manner. Secretary of State James P. Jiyrncs disclosed this government's altitude at a press conference He released the icxts of idcn;;;-n| miles |-PK:II'(||J)(; the forthcoming Polish elections. The notes already have been delivered lo Ihe Soviet gov- enuneiil in Moscow ami to the British ambassador here. The noles expressed United Stales concern .-.bout "increasingly frequent reports of repressive measures which the polish provisional uov- crmnciil has seen fit to employ" against Democratic elements in Poland. "These repressive activities on the part of thc provisional government," the notes said, "have now increased in intensity to thc point were, if they do not cease immediately, there is little likelihood IDat elections can be held in accordance with the terms of the Potsdam Agreement which calls for free and unfettered elections..." Byrnes cited a long list of "reprehensible methods" employed oy the Polish government in denying freedom of political action lo the Polish Peasant party, vice Premier Stanislas Mikolajczk. leader of thc polish peasant party, reported thc "methods" lo the United Stales. Soviet and British governments. "In the view of my government," HJTJICS said, "what is involved here ML the sanctity of international TSa-cements...Thc obligations with rc.sp-ci to the Polish elections which my sovernmeni assumed at Yalla and reiterated at Potsdam together Kith the Soviet and H:i- tish governments, and the obligations subsequently assumed by Ihe Polish government and frequently reiterated, provide for the conduct of free and unfettered elections..."

He said thc major approach to boosting purchasing power is to reduce prices. He estimated unemployment, nt. 2.080.000 and said this virtually was the irreducible minimum under our economic system. Mr. Truman urged Congress to increase thc mininaim wage uhcici' the wage-hour jaw and boost social security benefits to meet ris- iilK living costs. He also called for 1.000,000 more housing units in 1947 and a prompt start on a longrange "rousing program "to reduce th c of housing on all fronts and by all desirable methods." All-. Truman advanced tivo basic programs—one short range, the other lont; range. His recommendations on rent controls and taxes were quick and lo thc point: Rents: "The Congress should take steps at once lo extend rent control beyond next June. A large increase in rents would substantially reduce purchasing power." Taxes: "Expert and lay opinion is in agreement on thc rule ol sound public finance that calls for a surplus-in government revenues over expenditures while employment is high and the total of iii- comc is large. In the present economic situation, it is clear that it would he unsound fiscal policy to reduce taxes." races GOP Opposition On Monday, Ihe President not only turned a deaf ear to Republican demands for large tax reductions, but he advocated restoration of the wartime excise taxes which expire 0:1 June 30.
