WASHINGTON. -- Oklahoma's Senator Klmer Thomas, who finally admitted trading on the 'Commodity market, may get a full- fledge'd investigation from his own' colleagues- Thomas told his side of the speculating story in a letter, full of self-righteous alibis, which he sent to Senator Ferguson's investigating committee. The subcommittee was called together for a very hush-hush meeting in Ferguson's private office. Ferguson read the letter to other members, impatiently snorted that the committee had better supplement the information with specific questions about Senator Thomas' speculations. A letter was then fired back bluntly asking Thomas for names and dates of all commodities purchased. However. Washington observers are still keeping their fingers ^ n d DOWN Relief Miserable with coughs from colds or .smoking... stuffy nose? Here's relief --jast... up and dotcn!

Mrs. Russell Dummich told the authorities that in one week "she faced nine different taxicab drivers who insisted she had called them when she had not: the driver o' a wrecker; an ice cream delivery- nian who tried to collect lor SIC worth of ice cream, and a wash ing machine repairman she had not called.

This means tin-can production must be curtailed and the manufacture of odd- size cans discontinued. Loudest protest came from the j spokesman for Campbell Soup who ; accused the administration of belling the American public short in order to supply containers for relief food, bound for Europe. The industry finally proposed voluntary controls. buUthe go\ern- mcnt would not waver, complaining that not a single ton of strategic tin has been stockpiled since 'the end of the war. The Army land Navy are demanding that emergency reserves of tin must be built up in case^of another Pearl Harbor. " . Note--The Army and Navy also demand emergency reserves of oil.

As a result, GOP senators are now planning to make i movies of their own--complete j with Hollywood-stars and animated i cartoons. They plan to produce i 25 political films before Novem-1 ber, glorifying the accomplish-1 ments of the 80th Congress. ] The movie idea was given the , rousing approval of Senate Re- i publicans the other day at a secret j luncheon-caucus, which touched | off the 1948 senatorial campaign. First movie will go into production tentatively May 1. Actors George Murphy, Robert Montgomery and Adolphe Menjou were mentioned as loyal Republicans who could be called upon to help with the project. But the imain actors will be men such as · Bob Taft and Arthur Vandenberg. who played the heavy roles in Congress. They will be shown in action on the screen, occasionally in glamorous technicolor. Cartoon characters also will be used, scrambling over charts and graphs and gaily pointing out favorable statistics." -Spadework for the project was done by three Senate secretaries --Charles Egenroad (secretary to Senator Capehart of Indiana). Art Burgess (Senator Cain of "Washington), and Charles Kapnik (Senator Martin of Pennsylvania). Egenroad told- senators at the private luncheon that the movies would cost approximately $50,000. "Do you think that will b e ' enough?" broke in New Jersey's 'Senator Albert Hawkes. former president of tHe TJ. S. Chamber of Commerce. He suggested $100,000 . as a more likely figure. , Senator Arthur Watkins of Iitah wanted to be sure the movies, would not be used to campaign in the primaries, and Senator Joe Ball of Minnesota asked how the Democrats were going to be dragged in to see the pictures. "What good will it do just to show them to Republicans?" he asked. "Senator, if you announce there is going to be a show, it will bring out more Republicans," Burgess spoke up. "Then when election day comes along, maybe some of those Republicans who would rather play golf will come out and vote instead." Note--Smitten with the same movie bug, the Democratic party is quietly buying up 16-mm movie projectors to show political films. Economy-minded Republicans are not buying any projectors, plan to ask each, county chairman to borrow a projector instead. CZAR PETRILLO UNBENDS Music Czar James Petrillo has hinted to the House Labor committee that he might be willing to call off his ban on recordings if the Taft-Hartley law is altered. He has asked for changes in the law in order to stretch the union's welfare fund to the full 200,000 membership. As the law now stands, only the 32.500 musicians who do live broadcasting and recording are eligible for welfare benefits. Petrillo made his proposal to acting chairman Gerald Landis of Indiana, indicated he would be willing to enter negotiations to change his ban on recordings if the law could be revised. Landis consulted two of his colleagues on the committee. Congressmen Charles Kerstcn of Wisconsin and Richard Nixon of California, who said thev would not object to considering" a Taft-Hartley revision. MERRY-GO-ROUND U. S. Ambassador to Poland Stanlon Griffis. who once praised Hitler, has told General Marshall he's already bored with Poland, wants a new diplomatic post. When Marshall asked advisers where Griffis should be sent, one replied: "There arc only two posts open, Paris and Palm Beach. I'm for sending him back to Palm Beach." . . . Secretary of Stale Marshall has given up hope .of getting the Marshall plan in operation by May 1. His new dale is June 15 . The White House is afraid Henry Wallace will use the compulsory-draft issue to give Truman an awful licking . . . The National Lawyers Guild will award its lf47 Roosevelt Memorial medal for patriotic service in behalf of democracy to Congressman Adolph Sabath *of Illinois, a tireless battler for the underdog.
