Finance Board Bill Committee Plans Final Meeting Tonight A rough draft of a proposed Board of Finance bill to be introduced in this year's session of the Gpneral Assembly, 'embodying ch.anj,'e,i suggested by the local committee at its last meeting, will in committee, as a freemen's meeting voted down the bill. Considerable controversy arose over the appointment of a committee of six to prepare and submit Riggedi Election Gives Communist Bloc 390 Of 444 Seats In Parliament <By United Frew) One of the problems Incoming State Secretary Marshall must face is a crisis growlmj out of the clectiona in Poland Sunday. The Communist-dominated gov ernmont bloc won the election •hands down, gaining 390 of the 4*4 seats in parliament—and handing" Vice . Premier Mtkblajczyk's peas ant party a wihopping defeat. The crisis angle is brought about by the fact that the U. S. condemned the elections before they were held—aj being rigged. And the U. S. must now .decide w"hat face it will' present to the Poli&h government. The situation is further compli cated by a dJspatch this morning from a United Press correspondent in the peasant stronghold In eastern Poland, Correspondent Ruth Lloyd cables that some peasants in the little isolated village feel revolution in war-torn Poland is inevitable. These peasants, according to Miss Lloyd, talk ardently of a Poland—"free and independent." And they claim the Soviets, are tightening a noose around their necks. | However, the Idea is not unani- i mous. Others in eastern Poland see no revolution, but say their country is a pawn in politics of Russia on one side and the U. S. and Britain on the other. Armed Camps The correspondent says the villages in eastern Poland resemble an armed canjrp. With hardly a day going by that government troops armed with machine guns don't clash with partisan bands in the and in the swamplands.

Duke resigned' recently as assistant attorney, general. He was named the other day as one of the ern myself accordingly."
