. FRIDAY, •EFrnnnt i, I*M (ARK.) COURIER NEWS- T*« Notion Today: Anti-SuDY«/*M>Jt Biffs— ruman, Congress Row Over Communist "Hobble ot In the way Congress has »> JAMES MAKLOW WASHINGTON, Sept. *. .«•)— President Truman and Otngre&s are In a fight over the bills It wants to pass to hobble Communists. He wants them hobbled, too, but In The House already has passed one such bill, Introduced by Rep. Wood, Georgia Democrat, who's chairman of the House Un-American Activities Committee. The Senate' is debating a similar, but broader bill, offered by Senator McCarran, Nevada Democrat. He is a kind of bundle-everything-in- one-parcel bill. It's a bunch of bills wrapped up on one. It contains almost everything (hats in the House bill, and then some. Mr. Tvutuan dislikes It to much— because lie thinks It goes too far— that he said yesterday he won't sign It If Congress approves It, Wo one can predict at this moment what Congress finally will approve. That's because the House ind Senate bills., are not Identical. v .And both Houses will have to com- v promise on one bill— probably a mixture of both — before sending the finished product U> Mr. Truman. : Neither bill makes it unlawful to be a Communist. But both make it very tough and unpleasant to be one. Mr. Truman's adviser* think theyre so tough they'd . do more harm than good. For example: Drive Communist* Under Drive the Communists underground, and so make it harder to check on them; at the same time On th« following points the two biiU are almost identical: 1. All Communists would have to be registered with the government. So would all Communist-front outfits. And the Communist, organization! would have to keep a record of where they get their money and how they spend 11 . (This U part of both bills to which Mr. Truman and his advisers object most strenusously.) J. Communists couldn't hold government Jobs—unless elected, for example: to Congress. It would even be a crime for them to look for a government Job without first disclosing they were Communists. 3. It would be a crime for anyone In the government to give a Communist or Communist agent any Information Involving national security; and it would be a crime to receive such information. 4. It.would be a crime'for anyone working for the government to contribute of his money or services a Communist outfit. 5. It would .be unlawful for a Communist here to try to get a passport to-get out of the country, for anyone to give him a passport. 6. It would be unlawful for communists to send any propaganda through the malls—to dish it out over the radio or TV — without plainly labeling the material as coming from a Communist.' • Special Board perhaps endanger the basic innocent people. free- in August Mr. Truman asked Congress to pass a law to put • brake on Communists.. But to a very limited extent, and he suggested the. 1 * four main points: I—Compel person* trained as spies by a foreign government, meaning Russia, to register or be jailed; 3—raise the statue of limitations to make It easier to nail spies (under present law the gov • rnment can't try a spy unless he's been caught and charged within three years after his crime); 3— Give the President wider power to^ prevent sabotage defense place*, like at Important harbors. ' airfields, and so on; 4 — Give the government more power to get rid of ' Communist aliens. ,Th» House-passed bill ignored Mr. -Truman's requests except the statute of limitations. But the \lcCarran ; senate bill would give him what he asked, plus plenty that he didn't. Since there 1 ! so much heat now over the bills ai they stand, here's a brief explanation of what theyd do. wher» they're alike and HIU Afi~»i 'idViUic*!

The girls represent 46 stales, four cities, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, and Puerto Rico. ..-,.• board—would be created to supervise the enforcement of all these things If they became law . (The House bill, but not the Senate bill, would-even forbid-a Communist to hold a job In a defense plant.) Up to this point the House and Senate bills are almost the same. But that's as far as tlae House bill goes. The- Senate bill picks up from there, Includes the president's requests, and adds these things: It would-make it unlawful for anyone to conspire to set up a dictatorship here; it-would make spying or helping spies unlawful, but this Is only .tightening up present anti-spylng laws; It wouldn't let allent Communists or Communlst- s^mpathizers come into this country, and members of a - diplomatic group, like the Russians could be kicked out if they tried any monkeyshines (although this latter can be done now pretty well); all aliens living here would have to. report and reglstar. once a year, giving their address (they're supposed .to report changes of address now but apparently don't always do it); and it would tighten up the -laws on who could, become a citizen by denying citizenship to Communists or ex-Communists; . and—it would make it easier to throw out aliens who are Communists.----- • • • French Warn Foreigners of Abuse To Hospitality; Aliens Deported PARIS, Sept. 8.
