PAGE FOURTEEN GOP Slowdown Spells Trouble for Truman By JACK BELL WASHINGTON, Nov. 24.

The GOP's reluctance to act might contribute difficulties to President Truman's demands for approval of an excess profits tax and for an extension of rent controls In the short session. It could help kill House-approved Hawaii and Alaska statehood bills, on which Mr. Truman has asked action.
