Rice-Stix, Union Heads Have St. Louis Meet Representatives of striking garment workers at the Rice-Stix factory here said today that talks between union officials were scheduled to begin this afternoon in St. Louis. But hopes for an end lo the wage- contract strike which entered its second week ye.slerday seemed dim. "We aren't too optimistic in regard to any significant developments coming out of the meeting." Mrs. Helen Ifain. representative of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America (CIO), said here this morning. Company officials In Blylhevillc had "no comment" on the St. Louis meeting. Picketing, in sympathy to the Blytheville walkout, of 'the Rice- Stix plant in St. Louis was begun this week, Mrs. Hain reported. She said she had no report as to how many workers were off the Job at the St. Louts plant, but "we feel their demonstration had a bearing Strike Called Hour After 'Assurances' Truman Declares Union Had Fast Change of Mind; Silent on Seizure WASHINGTON, Aug. 2-1.

If the President decides he will seize the railroads, the two presidents of the unions are remaining In Washington to cooperate in any way possible." Two big rail unions.—the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and Order of Railway Conductors—gave their all-out strike orders to their 300,000 members last night after a new deadlock developed in White House peace talks with the carriers. The nationwide strike call is against 131 rail lines. However, the dispute over wages and working hours has dragged out over a period ot a year and a halt —and constantly been growing more ominous. •: WASHINGTON. Aug. : ' 24. W) _ Chairman Guy Gsbrielson of the Republican N a t i o n a I Committee said today his party has no Intention of joining in a '/conspiracy of silence" on foreign' nolicy In the coming election campaigns. He issued a slatement replying lo one made lo While House newsmen yesterday by Chairman William Boyle of the Democratic National Committee. Boyle s3id If the OOP tries to make the Korean war a political issue "it will rebound against them." He added Ills'com- mittee would not allow the Korean matter to become a polilical issue. "It Is becoming clear." Gabrielson replied today, "the the administration and Its followers realize that their policy blunders which contributed to the surrender of half of Asia and half of Europe to Soviet domination and culminated in the Korean war can neither be alibied nor covered. "The statement by the chairman of the Democratic National Committee that the Democrats will not discuss foreign policy but follow the President, is a blanket admission that the facts will be kept from the American people if the administration has its way.

Mr. Truman told his news conference that Sawyer Is In complete agreement with what the President asked for. Mr. Truman made this assertion when a reporter called his attention to reports that Sawvcr was try- Ing lo get the authority, rather than have It go to Chairman W Stuart Symington of (he National Security Resources Board. "It is said." one reporter (old him that giving this authority to the Commerce Department would give an advantage "to business over labor and other groups." That, the President said. Is Just a wild rumor. The reporter did not say who had publirhed the report but Columnist Marqul?, ChMris;. wrote today that Sawyer and his friends hail been working quietly to make certain final power would rest In Sawyer's department. Mr. Truman declined any comment on the economic controls bill now before a Senate-House confer ence committee. "Squabble" Seen Meanwhile.

The bill the Senate approved 35 to 3 Monday night would require President Truman to Impose wngc and price curbs simultaneously r.r.cl virtually across the board If he invoked them at all.

W'j-EsUmated collections under the new tax bill were revised downward today as the measure WM called up for Senate debate. The Finance Committee told lh« Senate the measure would yield ...about, $4.5(M,000,000 annually Instead'ot >5,000,000,000., The committee listed revenue In-* — . ; creases under the bill as follows- Prom Individuals $2,745,000,000. i-Vom corporations 51,500,000.000. From charitable trusts, family foundations, educational Instltut- tions, etc.. $60.000,000. from closing of "loopholes" In present lax taws. $68.000,000. From life insurance companies, 580,000.000. From new excises on television sets and deep freezers and an increase in the excise on slot machines, $55.000.000. The big question In the Senate was whether a corporation excess profits tax should be added to the bill. Chairman George (D-Ga) of Ihe Finance Committee was battling against that. He declared the bill will pass without an excess profits levy "or there will be no bill at all." But Senator O'Mahoney (D-Wyo). author of an amendment to collect some 53,500.000 or more additional money yearly through a tax on corporations' otherwise. o grant him stand-by power to put wage-price controls Into effect Under the " excess profits, thought .... Some other Democrats agreed with him. Sees "Monkeywrench" George, Chairman of the tax-writ- --.ut, i,, t House version, thei In 2 finance Committee, said con- President could invoke those con-! Kress cannot risk throwing "a mon- trols on a selective basis, ahead ofi kcywrcnch Into the economy" by any overall program, if he cared to I '- ackil1 !: an excess profits levy r.n the do so. The Senate knocked that provision out In adopting the across-thi'- board amendment sponsored by Republican Senators Bricker and Wherry (Neb). The vote was 50 to 36. Both Senate and House bills would authorize Mr. Truman to r<r- bill. He said more study is needed, but that Congress will act next year on such a tax to collect 51,000,000,000 to $6.000.000,000 a year. George has said the tax will be made effective next Jan. 1, O'Mahoney's proposal would make it retroactive In July 1. Meanwhile, trouble broke out on der rationing of consumer goods at I two ether fronts facing the bill: any time.

Aug. 24. llf)— Russia's Jakob A. Malk todav head- eo into the fourth and final week of his Security Council presidency, apparently dedicated—and successfully—to stalling decisive Council action on the Korean war. In the three weeks since he ended the Russian boycott to head the council. Malik has trumpeted the Soviet propaganda line at length. The West has replied with similarly long speachcs, but many observers wander which has had thc more telling effect on the Asian mind—the ultimate prize in the current U. N. war of word. Malik's delaying strategy h a s consisted mainly of presenting proposals to the council that obviously would be knocked down, or In stalling off action on western proposals. Thc procedural wrangle has revolved mainly around the council's decision of last .June to Invite South Korea's representative to join in discussion of Korean questions. Malik has refused either to seat thc representative or to make a rule denying him a scat. He has countered with two prn- [josals, one to order a ccrue-fire and withdrawal o/ all foreign troops -meaning U. S. forces—and to seat both North Korean and Red Chinese representatives In thc council to discuss a peace settlement. New Threat To Important Port Looms Enemy Eases Pressure on Central Front TOKYO, Friday, Aug. 25.— (AP)—-A heavily-armed Red Korean division rolled eastward Thursday night toward American positions on the Korean South Coast. In three columns of men and machines, the division moved up a new threat to the all- impoiiant allied southeastern port of Pusan some 50 miles away. The threat appeared in the south after pressure had eased on the central front above Taegu'where prob- ers for five Red divisions were thrown back for five consecutive days. The 50,000 Red soldiers a docen miles north of Taegu slanted away from their mountain positions, ap. parently looking for an easier avenue for a smash on Taegu. The North Koreans tried four times last week to drive five divisions down the rocky, bloody "bowling alley" corridor to Taegu. AP Correspondent Stan Ewlnton on the south reported the three eastbound rtcd columns were march- Ing from Ihe Chlnju urea, wher« two Red divisions were reported Retting ready to drive on allied forces spread before Masan, 27 air miles west of Pusan. The American 25th Infantry Division 10 miles west of Masan w>8 alerted for battle. U.S. planes bombed and strafed the approaching southern Reds. Pilots said there were many vehicles In the three columns. But the Communists were moving -In small group.i 'to minimize their chancej of being hit from the air. B»(lVe for Ridge ' The .new .force was reported a part of the North Korean Seventh DlvUlon, a division originally Iralned for police purposes,. On Ihe Masan front, American and South Korean riflemen fought shoulder to shoulder in a bitter old battle for commanding heights of Sobuk Ridge, 10 miles from Masan port. The sudden, unexplained shift of North Korean troops north of Tae- gu left their mountain positions to allied troops, 13 miles north of the fortress city. Before settling in them Thursday night, U.S. and South Korean Infantrymen beat off flanking attacks. AP Correspondent Don Whitehead on the central front quoted Col. John (Mike) Mlchaells. commander of the U.S. 27th "Wolfhound" Regiment, before Taegu, 33 saying: "We will stay here but It will be rough." AP Correspondent Tom Lambert reported the changing position of the 50.000-man force removed the Immediate threat to Taegu—largest city left In the allied defense perimeter In southeast Korea.
