House Rejects Proposal That Name Be Withdrawn WASHINGTON, Feb. . 13. (UP) — The White House si>id today President Truman will not. withdraw the nomination of David E. Lilien- thai lo be head of the Atomic Energy Commission. Press Secretary Charles G. Ross said flatly that Mr. Truman will not withdraw the nomination and that ho has not the "faintest intention" of asking Lilienthai to bow out. Opposition to confirmation of Lilienthai as chief of this country's atomic activities burgeoned among senators (his week after many days of committee hearings in which Sen. Kei.neth McKellar, D., Tenn., was the former TVA chairman's sole vocal critic. Republican senators Kenneth S Wherry. Neb., and E. H. Moore Ckla.. have publicly called on Mr rnannii to cancel the Lilienthai appointment. IROSS' announcement that the President would not do so confirmed reports heard last night that Mr. Truman was determined to stand put. Senate Democrats believed that if a vote were taken on Lilienthai now, lie would win Senate eoniir- nirtioii. They were frankly fcar- fiii. however, that extended delay would enable his opposition to build up its forces. Before Ross' announcement, Son Can M. Match. D., N, M, visited the President and discussed Lilien- thai. He said lie came away from the conference convinced the nomination would not be withdrawn. llalch for Confirmation Haf;h said he believed Lilien- thai ought to be confirmed. Concerning charges that Lilienthai was sympathetic to Communism which the nominee and his supporters have denied, Hatch said: "The ladles of opposing every nominee who comes up in the Senate, .even to the extent of reviling and condemning nominees, ultimately will result in government not being able to obtain men of character and of responsibility to carry on the functions (if government." Lilicnthars chance of being confirmed appeared to rest with a sizeable. group-of Republicans- reported now to be undecided As ol now, Democratic leaders counted six to eight Democrats against L-ilientlial nntt Republicans !:sted 15 to 13 GOP senators as opposed or inclined to oppose. That would be a mixlmum of 25 far from the majority needed to block t!)e appointment. Other sources estimated that 15 ar^sr woi " d iine "» iJ? 0t >. ","• Sou "«:rners, however.

Lilienthai of the Atomic Energy Commission has Communist leanings. The request was made in a letter to Senate President Arthur Vandenberg, chairman Bourke B. Hickenlooper of the House-Senate Atomic Energy Committee, and Chairman Robert A. Taft of thc Senate Republican Policy Committee. The letter was signed by Eugene C. carusi, president of the Reserve Officers of the Naval Services, an organization which claims to represent 300.000 reserve of<tf cers of thc Navy, Coast Guard, and Marine Corps. "We do not consider the present perfunctory hearings on the confirmation of Mr. Lilienthai as adequate," the loiter said. "We therefore request a full, complete and Public hearing directly on the charges." Asserting that Ihe cominunist- leanings charge against Lilienthai is "of thc most serious magnitude" in view of thc importance of the post at stake, the letter added; "No man should receive this appointment so long as there remains even a taint of suspicion or disloyalty. A mistake in this matter might well prove the last mistake .Ihls country ever made." Wage Increases Granted KANNAPOLIS, N.
