TWELVE PAGES PRICE--THREE CENTS May Ask Bids On New Road t To Capital State Plans New Highway From Here To Washington; Other Work Under Way I There is a possibility that bids j may be asked late this year on the j first section of a new highway from j ' Frederick to Brink in Montgomery | county--a modem thoroughfare ex- j pected to extend eventually to Washington--it was learned today. A Baltimore engineering firm. under State Roads Commission contract, ia moving along with a survey for the new road, beginning at the outskirts of this city, and is expected to make interval reports ·when plans and specifications for three to five'mile stretches can be ^ prepared. * The first section from this city south probably will be of three to five miles in length. It is understood that a. dual highway is contemplated but one lane may be built at this time. According to reports, the road will be on new location since a much wider right of way than the available Route 240 space is necessary. The engineers have 180 days to complete the survey. They are ex_ pected to report from time to time * their results over certain mileage Areas and securing of rights of ways will then get under way. The engineers do not secure such rights. A similar survey on Route 40 west from Pine Orchard is also making progress and the commission hopes to advertise for bids on a contract between Pine Orchard and West Friendship this falL This is also to be at new modern highway. A notice to begin work on a con-. tract for resurfacing sections of East ** and West Patrick streets as well as several local State highways is expected to go out to the successful bidder. T. B.

It is not known as yet-whether Gatch will begin work in Frederick or on the i local State roads. Water Department forces are winding up the installation of a new ·w.-atei--LLoe, an a section of East Patrick "street to be covered by resurfacing but new railway tracks are yet to be placed there.

Democrats In jMove To Have I Congress Meet Truman Noncommittal; Republicans Oppose Summer Meeting By the Associated Press Some highly placed Democrats began beating the drums today for a special session of Congress this summer--and a presidential challenge to the Republicans to deliver on their 1948 platform promises. GOP lawmakers generally were cool to the idea of getting back into harness any time soon. President Truman himseii declined to comment- Senator McGrath of Rhode Island, chairman of the Democratic national committee, told reporters pressure is coming from many people for Mr. Truman to call Congress back soon after the Democratic convention ooening in Philadelphia July 12. McGrath had just issued a formal blast at what he called the "dismal failure"' of the GOP-con- troHed 80th Congress. He said people will remember Congress' record when thev vote in November. Rep. Spence of Kentucky, ranking Democrat on the House Banking committee, said he is one of those in favor of a soecial session call. Declaring thst '"the Republican platform reads like an indictment of the Republican Congress,"' Spence added to newsmen: "The President should call Congress back and challenge the Republicans to make good oa Sieir platform. He should call upon the Republicans to do something about the high cost of living and about housing."' Senator Sparkman (D-Ala) commented: "It would be rather interesting to see the Republicans challenged to deliver on their platform promises which are completely inconsistent with the record of the 80th Congress."' But Chairman , Knutson (R- Mian) of the House "Ways and Means committee had this to say: Must Wait For Dewey "Nothing could be accomplished by a special session, because the President would be sure to veto anything we did. The American people will just have to wait until De?-'"-' gets into the White House."' »7 Assn. Plans Season Public Campaign. Open September 20 Mrs. Michael J".

Following that date one week will "be. allotted to filling seating requests from those who have placed their names on the secretary's -waiting list. The public solicitation will complete the seat sale for the season. While the entire week of September 20 has been set for the campaign, probably two days will suffice to sell the few available tickets.

Yugoslavs Won't Sign Appeal To New Contract Friend' With Miners Message To Stalin Asks Repudiation Of Cominform Attack And Firmly Backs Tito London, July 2 -.-P'--Yugoslav · Communists appealed directly to ! Prime Minister Stalin today to re| pudiate the Conrsinforni charges · against Premier Marshal Tito and i his leadership. I The Yugoslavs repeated their as. sertion the Cominform charges j were a pack of lies and said Stalin j ought to wipe them off the record. I The Yugoslav appeal amounted to a request to Stalin to reverse the policies of one of his right hand men, Andrei A. Zhdanov, secretary ; of the general committee of the Soviet Communist party and the guiding spirit of the Cominform. Approximately 15.000 Commu- ( nists meeting in Belgrade sent a j message directly to Stalin which af- j firmed their faith in Tito. The message to Stalin was tender in composition, but the effect was to underline Yugoslav Communist support for Tito. '"Our love towards you and the whole Soviet Union and everything you did for humanity is unlimited, as well as our belief that you will do everything in ypur power so that the truth will be brought out in a very short time, it said. "Long live your teacher of love towards the Soviet Union. Comrade Tito. | and long live our big friend. Stal- i in." The powerful central committee of the Communist party in Russia has already approved the Comin- form blast against Tito. It is hardly possible that the Cominform took its original action without approval of Stalin. The Communists meeting in Belgrade sent a second telegram to the Central Communist committee of Yugoslavia, which has denounced the Cominform charges as lies and . slander. The telegram expressed · faith in the committee and Tito. Communists of other countries were lining up with the Central committee of the Soviet Communists in opposing Tito and his associates. An additional sign of a break be- 'tween" Yugoslavia and the rest of the Communist states was reported frem Bucharest, the Romanian capitaL The Cominform bulletin was published there, last night.

Georgia For ^s Eisenhower Macon. Ga., July 2 '.¥,--Georgia Democrats in a surprise move today swung officially behind Dwight Eisenhower for President and their junior Senator, Richard Russell, for Vice President. At the same time they urged President Truman to withdraw from the 1948 election "to eliminate chaos, confusion and revolt" -within the Democratic party, and for the welfare "of the nation and the world." Resolutions committing Georgia on a 1948 Democratic national ticket were approved ia rapid order at the state Democratic convention. The move developed unexpectedly after a series of hotel conferences last night, taking many delegates by surprise. Leaders said Georgia thus became the first state in the nation to join the draft-Eisenhower movement openly with support of a state con\-ention. A petition to be sent the former Chief of Staff urged his acceptance of a draft as '"the only proper man to lead the fight for world peace and against Communism, tyranny and slavery."' Action in Georgia .followed shortly after an Alabama Democratic leader promised positively General Ike would be nominated for President at the Democratic national convention unless he calls a halt. Georgia delegates to the national parley were instructed to shift to Russell for President if Eisenhower turns down a draft in some new statement. 18 Steel And Coal Companies Refuse To Approve Pact; Charges Filed Washington. July 2 ..^--Eighteen major steel and coal companies re! fused loday to sign the new coal : mining contract and Sled charges of ' unfair labor practices against John L. Lewis and the United Mine Workers. Their stand appeared certain to bring a strike at the so-called "cap- 1 live" coal mines of the sieel companies. What the miners will do will i become known July 6 when the present mining holiday ends. i The contract the steel companies · refused to sign is the one Lewis ; negotiated with major commercial i coal mining companies. It became ' effective July 1. 1 The steel companies contend a : provision for a union shop is out- »lawed by the Taft-Hartley act. j That law permits a union shop if | the workers vote for it in a Nation, al Labor Relations Board election. j No such election has been held j among the miners. j The charges of unfair labor prac- j tices were filed with NLRB. j Harry M. Moses, negotiator for · the captive coal mine operators. i said they are "hopeful that immc- j diate action will be taken by the i general counsel of the National Laj bor Relations Board to have this is'. sue judicially determined at as j early a date as possible." I All of the major steel companies, including Republic. Bethlehem, and Jones and Laughlin joined in making the charges. Bludgeoned Body Found Tulsa. Okla., July 2 i.3,--A 42- year-old woman was found cruelly beaten to death in her apartment today only a few hours after another woman and two teen-age girls living in the same neighborhood were discovered savagely bludgeoned in a similar attack.

Record Washington, July 2 (ipj--Secre- tary of Treasury Snyder said today the government's "true" budget surplus for the fiscal year 1948 1 was 58,419,469,843.81. by far the biggest in history; Snyder said the figure represents ' "the actual excess of receipts over expenditures in the fiscal year." , which ended June 30. By congressional reckoning it v.-ould be S3.000.000,000 less, Snyder said, reflecting -what he called a "bookkeeping switch"' ordered by Congress in i£s closing moments. What Congress did was to direct the Treasury to take 53.000.000,000 from the past fiscal year's surplus in the 1949 fiscal year. The money was placed to the credit of the European recovery program yesterday. It will be spent as needs of the program arise. The effect will be to make spending in the new Sscal year £eem S3.000.000.000 lower than it would ; be otherwise. The shift -will bolster the Sscal iS49 budget so as to avert a possible deScHi at the year's end June 30. 1949. Tak;ng either the Adrr.inistra- tion's "true" $8.439,000.000 figure or the S5.419.000.000 Saure of Congress, the surplus :s the second in a row after deficits for :he preceding 16 straight years. By the Administration figure, it is more than seven times the highest previous surplus of SI. 155.000.- ·000 registered 21 years zs.o during President Cooiidge's Administration.
