As reported by McClellnn's Government Operations Committee, the measure would create an 18- mcmber Joint congressional committee on the budget. Highly-Trained Staff The e r <>up would have a highly- trained technical staff which would check the year-round on spending: in the numerous federal departments. Sponsors said the would cosl about $600,000 a year. But llusy estimated it could save billions. McClellnn told a reporter the very existence of the staff might cut down on requests for funds te- causc each executive agency would know Its nsc of the money •would be subject to thorou jh checking.

Backers of the bill pointed out that federal budgets have Jumped above tho 80 billion dollnr nmik, 20 times the level of 20 years ago.

But a prolonged (strike could hurt dial service, too, by curtailing maintenance. I'urketln; fo Degln Last night. Henry Slayer, New York attorney for the CIO strikers, said nation-wide picketing would start tomorrow. He did not say why U was not scheduled yesterday or today. Union officials have said previi ously that 300,000 CIO telephone workers and thousands of independent union members would honor the picket lines, which would be manned by the 16.000 Western Electric installers and salesmen striking in 43 states. Lives To Be Kesjiecfcd John A. Brorterlck, president ol the United Telephone Organizations, nn Independent union, said 16.000 member repairmen and installers would respect the CIO lines In the New York City metropolitan area. Western Electric Is a telephone company subsidiary. It has plants 111 all states except Maine. Vermont, New Hampshire. Rhode Island, and Montana. These states are not affected on intra-statc service. The stales facing the tightest telephone snarl are New Jersey, Michigan, Northern California and Ohio. Some 51.000 CIO operators and clerks struck in these places at the same time as the Westen Electric workers. Nevada phone workers have re fused to Soil, In the slrike as long as negotiations continue. PRIMARY (Continued from Page I) for him for President. Stevenson Is reported to be President Truman's top choice for the nomination but to date he has publicly discouraged all suggestions that he moke the nice. Each party will elect 50 delegates to the national conventions In July, with state conventions at later dates to provitle 10 more on each side. Most of the 60 Republican candidates were expected to go to Taft because 30 Taft men in the state's 25 congressional districts were unopposed. Ninety GOP can- dlrtntes for delegates were running, mi:! mure limn two thirds had announced for Tart, who has tlic support of the state organization. Although the Romans occupied England for 400 years they never conquered Ireland. EVENING SHADE, Ark. (#>— Three announced candidates for state senator from the nth district could offer their constituents cradle to grave service. They arc Dr. Charles D. Tibbels, a practicing physician; J. W. Best, a funeral director, and Mason Ellis, a monument dealer. (Continued from P»ge W budge an inch." "It Can't Be Met" Other industry sources have steadfastly maintained they cannot meet Wage Stabilization Board recommendations for a n^i-cent hourly wage increase, union shop, and fringe benefits unless they get permission to boost their prices about $12 a ton. No such permission has been forthcoming from the government. Murray shows no sign of retreating from ills position that acceptance of te WSB recommendations offers the only chance of avoiding a strike. The union originally • demanded an IS^-cent hourly pay boost for workers earning an average S1.8B an hour. It asked a union shop throughout Ihe steel industry, a guaranteed animal wage and other benefits. Tile companies proposed that the .mion forego a wage increase and industry give up hopes of getting higher pries. ELECTION (Continued from Page 1) and proecutlng attorney, $20; and coroner, surveyor, Justice of the peace, and constable, S10. Filing deadline Is noon, April 30. Mr. Ivy moved that any surolus funds left from filing fees after expenses of the elections are paid be proportionately returned to candidates paying more than a 325 fee. The motion was unanimously adopted. Mr. Taylor announced the County Court had combined Cnrson and Troy Townships because there were not enough qualified voters in Troy Township to hold a ]e(*:d election. The Committee decided to increase the new C.-irfon Township representation on the Central Committee to three Instead of two. the increase to be effective upon expiration of terms of representatives now serving. The Central Committee will meet ( a«ain July 15 to choose election pudges and clerks, Mr. Taylor announced. STEEL STRIKE (Continued from Page I) reports that stabilization loaders were inclined to permit puncture of Che, sleel price ceiling to ease a settlement. This was denied in of- Ticial Quarters. It was known, however, that price and profit data were being assembled for use, if necessary, in ,-i message or statement Intended to focus public pressure on steel negotiators working in New York against (he midnight deadline. Would Support "Reasim" A government official told a reporter the figures would support the "reasonableness" of the H 1 /-!cent hourly wage increase recom- Board WSB). The study, it was added, would show that current steel industry profits would cover the added v:a^c costs "several times over." The implication was plain;: The government statement, if made, would put new heat on the steel industry to give ground, rather than on the CIO United Steelwork- crs Union which has accepted the WSB .lEtdemenl formula. S12 Increase Estimated The steel industry has estimated that price increases up to $12 n ton would be needed to cover the added cost of the pay increase and other benefits proposed by WSB for some 050.000 sleelworkers.

Warships Furnish Action The Emlieott, other U.N. warships and planes from the U.S. air- cratl carrier Philippine Sea opened up on the Red batteries and silenced them. The Navy's report did not say whether (he Endicott was hit. Warships furnished most of Monday's action, and Tuesday started out the same way, as clouds and rain dampened air and ground action.
