TUESDAY, FKBUUAKY -I, 1947 GOP Challenges Truman on Plea For War Powers ' President's Request To Face Scrutiny of Many Congressmen WASHINGTON, Feb. 4. (UP) — Congressional Republicans tossed the ball back to President Truman today by challenging him to justify his request for extension of major war powers.

These provisions of the Second War Powers Act now are slated to expire March 31. Chairman Earl C. Michener. R.. Mich., of the House Judiciary Committee, which will take up the President's request, said Mr. Truman would be given an opportunity to prove the necessity of prolonging the regulations. "These all were Intended as emergency war powers and only those should remain which are essential to the functioning of thc government," he said. Rep. John M. Robsion, It.. Ky.. ^ second In command on the Judiciary Committee, said "there is no doubt _ that we will review all controls when we take up the President's request."
