FAQ* TWBLVB <AMt.) OOtHUW MfeWft FRIDAY, JULY IT, ! OOP's Attempts To 'Get Acheson' Fail in House Appropriation Brtf For Four Major Departments Pastes ; WASHINGTON, July 27 WV- Another Republican-powered "gct- Acheson" drive has failed. The snd came yesterday when th« House passed and sent to the Senat* a $1,045,940,115 approprla- tlon bill financing the State, Justice and Commerce Departments and the federal courts for the fiscal year which began July I. House foes of Secretary of State Acheson had tried—imMiccc.ssfuny —to saddle the bill with a rider which would have cut off hts pay. 'Voice' Is Saved Also defeated was a Republican- sponsored move to slash the budget of the "Voice of America." Tills is the State Department's overseas information program designed to -sell the American way of life to foreigner*, especially those behind the Iron Curtain. Republican ranks split in both drives, while Democratic lines held firmer thr.n usual, Acheson's salary was saved by a standing vote of ni to 81, the vot- «rs not being recorede by nume. There was no organized attempt to force a recorded roll-call vote. RoHcall Vote Taken A top-heavy rollcall of 245 to 141 beat back the attempt to cut the "Voice" budget from the $115,000,000 requested by President Truman to $10,000,000. The House voted the $65,000,000 recommended by Its Appropriations Committee. Ths drive to force Acheson off the payroll -was spear-headed by an amendment offered by Rep. Phillips (R-Calif). It would have denied pay to any policy-making department head, who, within five years prior to hie appointment, was.,connected with a professional firm that represented a foreign government Thta would have applied to Ache- ion, without naming him, since hi- E tew firm he« represented the Polish tov«mment. ' During an hour's hot debate th* amendment. Republicans repeated their allegation* that Ache •on ha* lost the confidence of the American people and that his for- tfea policies havs failed. Democrat* Defend Athteon Democrat*, on the other hand, defended th* Secretary as an official with an outstanding record of •ervfee, and assailed the Phillips amendment as unconstitutional. t Administration spokesmen challenged Republicans to try to Impeach Acheron. Upwards of a score of Republicans voted with the Democrats, some of 1 them explaining that although they havt no love for Acheson, they disagreed with the GOP appro rich to the job of getlng rid of him, House defeat of the newest move against Acheson was expected to •tick, since there has been no comparable drive in the Senate. Previous moves against Acheson by the GOP have been limited to volee of no confidence. LHtle Change In Money Bill The House made relatively small change* in the money bill. The to- Soys UN Had 'On f Ji* Ropes' But Htld Off for Armistice Talks WASHINGTON, July 27.

CONTROLS (Continued from Page M ornmltte* whips • together a bill hleh can get two-house approval »fore midnight (EST) Tuesday. The conferees recessed shortly fter 4 a.m., EST, ending a nine tid one-half hour continuous ses- on which started at 6:30 p.m., EST esterday. Earlier yesterday, the omnilttee had met (or a total of bout eight hours. Maybank said at the outset of the ll-nlght meeting that he was de- ermlncd to complete work on. the ill before a recess. However, he inally had to give up and let the 'eary lawmakers get some slesp ending the session scheduled lat- r today. To Complete Bill Today Mnybank said he felt sure the onfereos could complete the bill hen. The rollback provision tentatively pprovcd covering non-farm commodities calls for these costs to be aken iiU<j account: Those for materials, indirect and llrect labor, factory selling office and nil other production distiibu- lon and transportation costs except uch as the President may deter- nlne to be reasonable and excessive." The rollback provision is a compromise between Senate and House ersions. The Senate rollback pro•Islon has been generally regarded as more restrictive than the compromise while the House provision appeared to be less restrictive. Increase* Permitted Senator Capehart (R-Ind) said .he compromise version Is designed to prevent "unconsionable prices while at the same time permitting increases to compensate for highei costs since tile start of the Koreai war." He added, "this ought to be exactly what the American people want. 1 The administration gained some ground when the conferees agreei to knock out a Senate provision which would have given meat packers » "reasonable margin of profit" on each species of meat they process, rather than a reasonabti margin on their overall operation Stabilization Director Eric Johnston had assailed the Senate provision as one of the worst in the Senate bill. Lid Put on Housing Credit The conference screwed back down the lid on housing and automobile credit loosened in the House bill But it left credits easier than un der prevailing Federal Hcserve reg. ulatlons. Tn general, it followed thi Senate's Ideas. The conference ng reed that wherever an area Is de clared critical to defense, and placed under rent controls, the Federal Re serve's "Regulation X" governing fi nancing for private houses shouli be relaxed "to the extent necessar to encourage construction of nous ing for defense workers and military personnel." I The House had spelled out In de tall just how Regulation X could be TOOL SHED—$50 A MONTH—Sena** Investigating Committee Chairman Lyndon B.

It U "home" to a » sergeant, his wile and three children at S50-a-moaU> rectal ascd. The regulation requires high I .own payments on new houses, and Units the payoff time. A requirement for a one-third iown payment on new and used au- omobiles was retained but the con- erees voted to allow IB months, intend of the present 15, to pay off he balance. The had proposed making the down payment one- hird on new cars and one-fourth used machines while allowing 21 months for the pay off In both cases. 18 Months Given to Pay The -conferees took a House provision on consumer credit requiring maximum down payment of 15 per cent with at least 18 months to pay the balance on household appliances including radios and television sets. At present, a 35 per cent down payment is required on those items, with only 15 montiis to pay. The committee also voted to require a down payment of no more than 15 per cent and no less than 18 months to take care of the balance in the case of household furniture and floor coverings. The present requirement on those items is 15 per cent down and no more than 15 months to pay the balance. Truman Doesn't Get Power The compromise bill — like the separate measures passed by the Senate and the House—is minus most of the additional power which Mr. Truman had requested. Those include control over commercial rents, authority to build and acquire defense plants, control over commodity speculation, authority to pay subsidies on high-ccst farm commodities, the right to restrlcl real estate credit on existing houses and authority to license all firms subject to price ceilings. Among other provisions included in the compromise bill are: Property acquisition—the administration's present authority to acquire properly by purchase or requisition would be broadened generally to include the right to condemn property. l>efense LoanB Retained Subsidies, loans, purchases — the government's basic authority to juarantee or make direct defense is and to purchase items for resale would be continued, wltl: some restrictions. It would receive limited author- ly to pay subsidies to high cost producers of raw materials, other han farm commodities. Defense plants—there would be no change in the administration's current authority to install equipment In federal and private plants However, both the Senate and the House rejected the President's request for broad authority to co, struct and acquire defense plants Revolving Fund Set Up Financing—the bill would set up $2,100.000.000 revolving fund to cov er defense loans as well as pur chase subsidy programs. The conferees shelved a strippei down version of the administra tion's defense housing program The Senate passed the bill earl this year as separate legislation then put it Into the controls bill a rider because the House had pig eonholed the measure. Senate conferees agreed to shelv it after House members promise that the housing bill will be con sidered by the House Baukin Committee on Monday. The conferees approved a sectio authorizing creation of ft small de fcnsc plants administration to as .sist small companies get a bigge share of defense contracts. Th new daministration would be an in dependent agency, financed by th S50.000.000 revolving fund.

Court SAN FRANCISCO, July 27. (yp)— *op California communists, angry iver surprise arrests and a government demand for $75.000 bail «»\ £o into federal court today 'lAb demands for freedom, on smaller x>nds. Twelve California Communists, ncludinj the pinch-hit national party leader. William Schnelder- nan, 40, were Jailed yesterday. All were charged wilh conspiracy to publish material advocating over- 'hrow of tlie government. Schncldcrman '.vas arrested in lev.' York nnd held in lieu of $100,000 bail. He took over the top paity spot after the conviction of 11 Communist lenders in New York last year. Four here and four more in Los Angeles were told to put up 375.000 each, or go to Jail. They went to 'ail, angrily protesting 'no one but Til underworld kingpin" could post ny such amount. Two San Francisco women were freed on 82,500 bond each 'and a third on $1.500. Today's court fight will center about those bonds also. The government wants them raised. U.S. Attorney Chauncey Tramutolo contends: "Without high bail, there is a great danger they will become fugitives." It was that argument that caused U.S. commissioners here and in Los Angeles to demand $15,000 iBll faeh of the other eight. Tramutolo said a federal grand jury In Los Angeles will lie asked next Wednesday to Indict all 12. He originally demanded that those arrested here be denied bail. 'That's imhcard of," snapped U.S. Commissioner Francis St. John Fox. "Bail Is denied only for murder and treason." Defense attorneys called the $75,000 figure "vindictive, preposterous." One of them, Richard Gladstcin, called it 'prohibitive and tantamount to no bail at all." He pointed out that Frank Costello, New York gambler "who could provide $75,000," was released on $5,000 bond. Gladstein himseh" is free on bond pending outcome of his citation for contempt of court when he was an attorney for the 11 kip Communists convicted in New York last year. Mead's Gigantic JAMES B.
