Some Republican leaders have advocated a tax cut. while democratic legislative chieftains have insisted that the public debt should be pared first. , •. ' Told that the Republicans in Congress were saying they would not cooperate if he makes "radical" recommendations. Mr. Truman asked, who can say what is radical? He said his recommendations in his state of the union message would call for what he believes to be necessary for the welfare of the United States. This message will embrace his viewpoint, he said, adding that members of Congress were entitled to have .theirs. He refused to be drawn into . a discussion of then administration's chief of the United Mine Workers, against whom the government is future policy tow, John L. Lewis chief of the United Mine Workers, against whom the government is waging a court fight. Mr. Truman told questioners the Lewis matter was in the courts and he would have nothing to say about the mine workers' -leader or about the recent coal strike. "You hope the courts will follow the election returns? one reporter pressed. Mr. Truman replied with a simple no comment. The president said he would send separately to the new Republican- controlled Congress a state of the union legislative message, a message on the budget and a third message based on, the-report to ,b mad soon by his' cbnomic - adyis- ory (maximum employment) council. These messages, the president said, will be sent to Capitol Hill on separate days. Asked whether he saw any chance for reduction of taxes, the president said he did not want to discuss what recommendations he will make. He did say, however, that he will renew his request for a merger of the armed forces as one point m his state of the union message.-o • 8 Known Dead Continued from Page One Market Report Says Bilbo's Deals Made by Manager Washington .Dec. 12 — (fP\— ivuij.

"If .it's wrong to recommend friends and constituents for iobs, then- it disqualifies three-fourth of the Senate and all of ihe House." The .vey field contract was awarded to a combination made up of Friend, the Volz Construction Co;,' the Rock City Construction Co.; and : the Flint-Mordan Construction Co. Rock City was a Tennessee outfit; the rest were from Mississippi. The original estimate of the job's cost was $1,5-15,090. Final cost was $1,731,029. High-ranking officers testified that Bilbo got in touch with ihem many times about awarding of $25,932,361 of war contracts in h k home state. Maj. Gen. Robins told the subcommittee that as early as 940 Senator Bilbo "brought contractors down to our offices" and recommended them for many multi-million dollar jobs. Bilbo was barred from cros sex- amining witnesses. Chairman Mead (D - NY) announced this ruling as a Senate War Investigating subcommitee opened public hearings here with Bilbo and his attorney, Forrest B. Joackson of Jackson, Miss., on hand. Jackson, asked whether he or Bilbo might question witnesses. Mead, replied that ihe-committee would "not allow, cross examination to itake place" because it "did not like to.have authority .transferred .to ariyorie^Dot a member of the committee." But bo.th' Mead and Senator Fei r gusbn (R-Michi suggested that if Bilbo or his attorney had any ques- tipns they wished asked of witnesses, the'questions could be presented 'in writing to the committee. Opening the hearing, Chairman Mead; said the war investigating committee has "instructed us to ascertain the truth with respect ib alleged transactions between a member of; the Seante and certain war contractors." He. noted .that a preliminary investigation has been made of complaints against Senator Bilbo and that as 5. result the full committee "was of the opinion that the facts as developed warranted a full investigation and unanimously Cattle. 3,000: calves, 1.200: a few sjood steers steady at 24.00:25 00- medium fleshed heifers and mixed /earlings 15.00-20.00: odd lets good 22.00: little done on beef cows but canners and cutters opened steady at 9.50-12.00; largelyl 0.00 upward- bulls unchanged; medium and good sausage bulls 13.CO-16.00; with beef b.ulls .to 16.50 and better- choice vealers 1.50 lower at 29 50- god to choice 17.50-28.25.

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, Dec. 12 —(/P)— Wheat led another upturn in grain futures today on buying which came from mills and was believed to represent lifting of hedges against export sales of flour. Prices were up more than 2 cents at times and the January contract was within 3 cents of its 26 year high. Elevator interests supported corn and commission houses were on the buying side of oats. Both of these grains were i'irm, although they did not gain as much as wheat. Cash .corn was Jirm and higher prices brought out more grain, purchases to-arrive being placed at around 350,000 bushels Major fncotr in back of the upturn, as has been the case all this week, was the government's oro- gram of wheat and corn buying";'or export, plus the needs of mills for instructed this .subcommittee to conduct it." • Charges have been made that a group of war contractors save Bilbo more than $30,000 in cash, a new home, an automobile and.otker inings, « . i , : ,•,., Mead said that the committee has not prejudged ihe case .-".*ven though the full committee has decided that a prima- yacie . case exists which compels ihe committee under its mandate i'rom the Senate to proceed with a :;ull and thorough investigation." The chairman added that the ure- sent hearing will not cover Bilbo's "political or ideological philosophies. Republicans, who will hold 'a maionty in the new Senate, have announced they will try to prevent Bilbo xrom takin.e Ms seat when Congress convenes January 3, But the oU year oicl veteran of southern politics has voiced con- tidence that all charges against him will be cleared up before vhen wheat occasioned by export Hour commitments.

Fearing the rate of destruction of whales in greater than the slock of whales can replace, they sought means of conserving the existing stocks. The need of more regulations is felt almost universally. Some regulations are already in force. The Falkland Islands prohibit the capture of certain whales. To catch others, a permit is needed. The United States and a few other governments prohibit the shooting of calves and cow whales with young. Many governments insist on the total utilization of the carcass as far as possible. Delegates thought there should be a clarification of whaling regulations and that a permanent organization should be set up to uphold general regulations that would deal with operations in the open sea.

I know it's slim pickings at the bank; but I've got to hang on. It's $18 every Saturday— and what do you think we do without it?" Jeff shrugged. "The fact is, I don't see how we get along, even with it; or how we ata and kept a roof over our heads when I was in school. I've never 'known hat Papa's commissions amount o, until this week. They-must be bout $90 a month, never much lore, if he'd extend his route, go ut oftener—" "He won't." "Well, of course, he's writing .is book." "Oh, " Sidney said, "his book." She had her own opinion of Paa's book, the meager pile of yel- ow sheets gathering dust on the desk in the upstairs hall. "A Vin- "ication of the Southern Planter." "Probably," Jeff continued, "we ived on Aunt Pet's money when we vere all kids, until that ran out. I hink it was a trust fund, or some- hing, and paid' Papa a small sum every month. And I guess he earned it. I've often heard him say he gave Aunt Pet the best years of lis life." Gave them? He stayed with Aunt Pet because he loved doing it. Because it was so nice and easy." But after Aunt Pet's money did un out?" "Then Aunt Laura came to the escue. She sends him three hundred dollars every Christmas,, and another three hundrd on his birthday in June. It's pretty much for her to do, too., if you ask me. I lope you won't expect your sister ,o subsidize you and your offspring Jeff—anyway, if you're not any pleasanter than Papa is to Aunt jaura. He's never forgiven her for what she said in that letter: 'The var is over and really, William, ou arc a perfect fool to think you can revive it, single-handed,' So ':ie never even thanks Aunt Laura now. but he keeps the money." "Well, it was a rough thing to say to the old boy." "Yes, it was hitting the nail on the head —roughly." Jeff turned, staring through the darkness. "You don't mean you're on Aunt Laura's side against Papa? "Oh, I'm not on anybody's side," Sidney said. "The fuss between them is silly. I don't know Aunt Laura; I've never seen her, and neither have you. But I think it was her privilege to go up north to Philadelphia after the war and ae'a milliner, if she wanted to, and marry n man who fought for the Union—" **(! "A yankee. Fighting against Papa." ' "Not really. He'd never heard of Papa. But what if he had? Coufil he have helped that? Aunt Laura's Yankee was probably a g09d deal af a person; he got very rich and he made Aunt Laura a leader in society. It was jTtSt as much Papa's privilege to stay with his old Aunt Pet: in Virginia until she died and they sold the house out from under him. The point is, I don't think Papa ought to despise his sister and take money from her. It ought to be one thing or the other."
