The congressmen, all members of. the house foreign affairs committee, issued a Joint statement yesterday blasting, the department for its "spineless performance" in trying to get the U. S. consul ren era! freed from a Chinese communist JaiJ In Mukden. The angry lawmakers callet it "one of the most humiliating chapters in American diplomat ic history" and declared-that "the loss of face by the United State in beyond calculation." One of the house members Rep. Judd of Minnesota, told i reporter the United States shoulc have tried "military action" ir ihe Ward case instead "ofignom inously sneaking off the battle Held." Besides Judd, the statement was signed by Reps. Chiperfield o Illinois. Vorys of Ohio; Lawrence H. Smith of Wisconsin, and Jackson of California. It bristles with phrases like unbelievable bungling" a n ( ''mishandling and said the de- partment's "failure to take firm action" is a "by-product of the incredibly botched China policy which our government has pursued for the last four years. The stalement reserved particular criticism for Secretary of Staie Achcson's appeal to 30 na- 1 ions--including Russia--for assistance in the Ward case. "Is it to be assumed that it wii: require-the assistance .of 30 na- libn's to protect the lives of pur diplomatic officials under similar circumstances · in the future? 1 the five Republicans asked. "If this method was the only effective one the state department could think of in the Ward case, the natural question is why didn't the department invoke it in the first place instead of irpr perilling the life of one -of its trusted diplomatic officers for all these months?"

The commission also has reduced the valuations in 24 counties. Those figures riiean :he valuations were left un changed in 35 counties. The changes were made in connection with the commission's annual task of equalizing valuations as be- ;ween counties. The revis- ,ons are from valuations set county assessors or boards of review. The figures represent average land values )er acre. They are the 60 jercent taxable portion o£ actual values. The reductions ranged up to -Ms per cent on buildings alone n Poweshiek county. The increases ranged up to 25 per cenl on lands and buildings,' and also 25 per cent on buildings alone. The Merest increase on lands and bulldlnss was in , Dickinson county. -The tamest increase' on bulldinis ,·;. alone was in Jefferson,; Louisa and .Webster countiw.

Sioux county's figure, was increased about $24 an acre compared with 1948. The per acre valuations of numerous counties were increased over 1948 by $18, S17 and $16. Only two counties got reductions over 1948 per acre valuations. They are Lee, with a reduction of 18 cents, and Warren, will a cut of $3.76."The importance, of p r o p e r equalization this year assume? greater magnitude due to the fac that the slate will- allocate nearly $30,000,000 of special tax revenues to local taxing bodies under standards which have a direct connection with the valuation of real and personal property in each taxing district," the commission said. It added: "The amount of real ami personal properly valuation in each taxing district directly affects the share of each district in distribution of homestead credits, land credits, supplemental school aid, military tux credits and farm to market roads on a need basis. "In any county as a whole, if it is assessed higher, than it should be in relation to the other counties of the slate it. will receive less than its proper allocation of agricultural land credits ami supplemental school aid. More Slate Aid "By the same lokcn if a county Is assessed on a lower basis than it should be. it will receive more money as state aids for these purposes than it is entitled to." The commission ranked Hamilton county as having the most valuable farm land of any county in the state. It placed Sioux county in second place, Calhoun in third.

In accepting Lilicnthal'l resignation with "reluctance and the, utmost regret," Mr. Truman expressed confidence that his atomic lieutenant would stay on if really needed beyond tile December 31 date on which he now plans to quit. Despite this indication that the president might not be in a hurry to find a successor, there was speculation that Mr. Truman may · act swiftly in order .to give the · new man plenty of time to familiarize himself with the complex and secrecy-cloaked oper-.. ation before Lilienthal steps, out.
