TOESDAY, MAY 11,19M BLYTHEVTILB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Government Seeks Extensive Powers To Combat Reds WASHINGTON (AP) — gress for far-reaching power combed labor unions. A request for this and other new antisubversive authority was sent to'Capitol Hill yesterday by Atty. Gen. Brownell, who said he ' has the backing of the White House. Brownell proposed that the Subversive Activities Control Board (SACB) be empowered to disband not only Red-infected unions, but— in a new departure—to dissolve business firms it finds are Communist-infiltrated and in a position to harm national security. The attorney general also suggested that Congress permit the government to bar subversives from privately owned defense plants. The union-dissolution power was proposed as a drastic substitute for a Taft-Hartley Act requirement that union officials file non- Communist oaths with the National Labor Relations Board before their unions can be eligible for board services. Bills Introduced Sen. Ferguson of Michigan, chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, promptly introduced two bills to implement Brownell's recommendations. The Justice Department is known to have had trouble, trying" to enforce the non-Communist oath requirement. In the seven years since the Taft-Hartley Act became law, the department has investigated scores of cases of union officials suspected of filing false non-Communist affidavits, but there have been only four convictions, and one of these was . reversed. According to Justice Department authorities, the difficulty stems from language requiring union officials to certify only that they are not Communists at the time of filing. They say .an official with Red connections could resign from the Communist party to take the oath, then rejoin the next day. These officials said they hoped the union-dissolution weapon would impel Red-domonated labor organizations to purge themselves.

Sources close to the Vietnamese delegation said the Communist terms were unacceptable to Viet Nam. These reactions came as the Indochinese talks were in recess. One Western source said they might not be resumed before Friday. The main points of Western opposition to the Communist proposals on Indochina peace were the provisions for Communist - style elections without international supervision, recognition of the Communist-backed regimes of Indochina and lack of military guarantees to back up the armistice Although the Western delegates were agreed there must be full discussion of the detailed armistice proposals, some of them already were talking about writing the Geneva conference off as a complete failure on both Indochina and Korea.

French forces strengthened their defenses in the vital, rice-rich Red River delta below Hanoi against a rebel assault that might come before the monsoon rains hit their peak late in June. Informed French military sources said it was unlikely, however, the Vietminh could shift the bulk of their shock troops from Dien Bien Phu to the delta perim- reet before another month. French fighters and bombers ranged up and down northwest Indochina, pounding rebel troops and supply convoys on the roads below. Between Hanoi and the key supply port of Haiphong the rebels stepped up .attacks on sparcely- manned defense posts. Some 70,000 Vietminh regular, regional and guerrilla units are estimated to be in the delta area. Negro Deaths Rev. W. M. Madison Rev. W. M.
