Before getting the hearings under way, however, the committee planned to act on a suggestion from Rep. Francis Case (R-SD) that the administration be asked for all details on the dismantling of German industrial plants for reparations payments and how European recovery prospects, may have been affected. For the emergency aid program intended to help France, Italy and Ajstria through the winter, the ap- proprations committee chopped $88,000,000 from the president's request for $597.0 00,000. And it trimmed to $230,000,000 his estimate of $490,000,000 to. meet army needs in Germany, Japan, Korea and other occupied areas. The committee recommended thinner slices in several less con- troversaial domestic items and tossed in $222,000 allotment to pay the mileage allowances of Congress members for the special session due to end Friday. Since the $88,000,000 -cut from the foreign aid fund was taken off estimates for purposes other than direct relief— such as interest on ic French debt — no concerted ffort was expected to be made to pset the reduction.

Britain and France into a huddle to devise pr ,00 E restoring the $200,000,000 cut rom the army's occupation funds, tnce Taber's group claimed the ways and means for the economic :onsolidation of Western Germany, eaving Eastern Germany in the lands of the Russians who will use it as a base for their further offensive to defeat the Marshall plan and extend Soviet domination across Western Europe. This may easily be the decisive European battle in the struggle between Communism and the democracies. Certainly it gives an unwelcome picture of "two worlds" at loggerheads. However, on the brighter side is the fact that it finds the three major democracies finally united in this crisis, for France is standing solidly with Britain and the United States. As the Big Four conference was rushing to an angry close, French Foreign Minister Bddaulft was quoted by the newspaper Paris Presse as declaring that his coun try couldn't act any longer as re feree between Russia and the U S. A. He said "it becomes obvious that the U. S. S. R.'s efforts no longer are aimed at peace" Bidault's statement might be ,ex tended. It is equally true that it no longer is possible for any coun try, or individual, to take a mid die of the road course between Communism and Democracy.

Rep. Cannon of Missouri top Democrat on the Appropriations ommittee, chided Republicans for vhat he called "this picayunish, cheese paring economy." But Cannon said any amendments to restore the funds should come from Republicans "to divest them of the :aint of partisanship." The commitlee urged that the United States and Great Britain reach an understanding on German occupation costs, saying that p237,000,000 of the total requested ay the army was for relief' use in :hc British zone, the committee cut $137,000,000 from that request. Shortly after its report -was submitted to the House yesterday, government officials told newsmen tne Uited States has agreed tenta- Uvely lo assume 75 per cent of the cost of operating the Anglo-American zones. In return,-'this counlry would be given 75 per cent of Ihe voling po t wer in delermining policy for the economically unified zones, the officials said. They reported the tentative agreement was reached after nearly three months of negotiations here with the British. —— o— : either one or the other. The two sms just don't mix. Meantime, in accordance with reaty obligations, the last of Jncle Sam's troops of occupation n Italy are aboard a Yulctide ransporl, bound for home, and the British also have folded their tents and departed that economically shattered and politically turbulent country whose govermeent is lighting a life and death struggle against Moscow-directed Commun- " ;m. At first glance this withdrawal might seem like yanking crutches from under a cripple—but not so These military contingents had been reduced to a handful of men mere token forces. And as the Americans sail away they are re placed by President Truman's blunt warning that, if Italy's so vereignty should be threatened, the United States would be obliged to consider what measures would be appropriate for the maintenance o peace and security. That, I take it, is a promise— couched in the language of diplo macy—to safeguard Italy from ag gression. Turning to another field of for eign news, the British House o Commons has before it the warm ly debated question of whethe Prince Philip should be given state allowance of ten thousan pounds ($40,000) as a royal duk ist to intrude in John Bull's af- airs but, having been a close ob- erver of the royal family over ome eighteen years of residence n England, I can testify that they re among the hardest workers in rie world. Their,time truly belongs o their people. Week in the week iut they play a prominent part in ill sorts of functions, and their :chedules often run from morning intil midnight and cover many en- agemtns. It's a tough job, and e have been told that "the laborer is worthy of his hire." While we are on the subject of royalty, Lord Baldwin who has ust died in England wasn't the ;rcatcst figure ever to be prime minister 'but his name is bound to ive in history as the one who 'orced King Edward VIII (now the Duke of Windsor) to choose be- ,ween abdication and renunciation of Wallis Warfield Simpson. As Baldwin himself said to -parliament in asking it to consider Edward's message of abdication, "no more difficult, and I might say, more repugnant task ever has been imposed on a prime minister." Baldwin was the type who fol lowed the dicates of conscience and he was deeply religious. Once when I was chatting with him in his private office at ten dovyninj street I asked him if he believec in prayer. He hesiaated a momen and then said: "I believe that no man can go through life carrying a great bur den without Divine guidance."

To jo to Take Responsibility for the War By PETER KAUISCHER Tokyo, Dec. 17—(UP)— When I 'X-Premier Hideki Tojo takes the land, probably Monday before he International Military tribunal or the Far East he will lake full •esponsibility for Japan's declara- ion of war against Ihe allies, it vas learned today. The bald- 64-year-old No. 1 Japanese war crimes suspect also will ;ake the blame for execution of the Joolittle fliers and the deaths of hojsands of British and Australian Allied war prisoners, who per"shed in the building of the Burma 3iam railroad. In a 240-page affidavit, which will be read to the court by his American d e f c n s e attorney, George Blewett of Philadelphia, Tojo will offer the following arguments in his defense: 1.—Japan's war was a defensive one and inevitably brought on by Allied economic pressure. 2.—The decision to attack Pearl Harbor and British possessions was made' at a Dec. 1, 1941, imperial conference because the United States note of Nov. 26 was regarded as an ultimatum and the chiei fear was that prior military consultations between the Americans, British and. Dutch would result in were Ihe only two cabinet ministers who knew of the Pearl Harbor plan, but Tojo will say he fervently desired the final declaration of war delivered prior to the attack since it was the emperor's wish. 4.—Tojo will say he ordered the court-martial of the Doolitlle fliers because the bombing of Tokyo was an an atrocity under international law. MORE Tojo will further argue that the ourt-martial order was given in >rder to prevent Japanese soldiers vho captured the fliers from tak- years, ng action against them on the spol an allied attack on Japan. However, the decision Tbjo will maintain, was made with the provision that the orders to attack Pearl Harbor would be recindec if the Washington peace nego tialions succeeded: 3.—Tojo and Minister of the Canadian Prime Minister Is 73 Today Ottawa, Dec. 17 — (IP)— Prime Minister W.

After he surpasses the record, King is expected to relinquish the post. alongside the prisoners identical conditions. under 6 — The former Japanese premier will argue that the Manchurian, China and Pacific wars were three unrelated incidents and therefore not a wage war," as charges. "conspiracy to the prosecution Much of Tojo's affidavit will attempt to make individual rebuttal of the more than 1,000 times his name appears in prosecution evi- ence or testimony. The prosecution contends that Tojo was "criminally liable for every crime." Tojo prepared most of the affi-' davit, the second longest yet presented in the trials— from copious notes made daring the nearly 18 months he has 'been sitting in the prisoner's dock.

For there is always the assurance that, once outlawed, the party would dissolve into "front" groups and become more slippery than ever. . ; Thus Mr. Thomas, in linking Iho agent-registration laws with the loyally reviews, is , wandering a- field. If being an avowe.d Communist is not legally disloyal, then membership —perhaps innocent—• in a "front" organization cannot in itself constitute disloyalty. It is, as the attorney general says, just a piece of evidence.

Too many passions had been- aroused, too many mistakes jtpf judgment and evidences of bad faith had been translated into blood shed in the last 30 years. Bitter resentment of any United Nations decision was a foregone conclusion. Yet partition seems the most sensible solution. The UN was confronted on the one hand by -ne all- or-nothing attitudes of both Jews and arabs. On the other were the commitments of Great Britain, the mandatory power, wiiich tne Lea gue of Nations had recognized, and some less oincial pledges made bj this country. It may be faint praise Washington, Dec. 18 — (fP) —Secretary of Agriculture Anderson promised a Senate committee today to give it and the public a list of heavy traders in commodities "as rapidly as we can gather the information and prepare the lists." He told the Senate appropriations committee in a closed door session l hat "if your decision to demand the names remains unchanged" he will make them public as soon as possible. Anderson was questioned by the committee for two hours and 35 minutes in the closed session. Then reporters were admitted and a stenographer read to them his record of what had been said. The transcript recorded that Anderson had testified: "In the event that you as a committee, without further action by the congress, insist on having the names and addresses of all traders along with the statistical information called for in your subpoena. I shall not permit myself to be charged with shielding anyone by " refusal to grant your request."

But that was the choice anc the decision was about all that any one could reasonably hope for. The UN's task was made harder by th-2 ochavior o£ all three principals. The British government pledged and unpledged. It played both ends against the middle. At the encl it washed its hands of the whole business by refusing to help enforce a decision thiit was not agreeable to both parties. jk Jewish terrorists prejudiced the "case of their more moderate and more unfortunate brothers. Jewish extffemisls outside Palestine, particularly in America, professed to speak for all Jewry in their almost hysterical attacks on British policy. Together, these two groups succeeded at times in making the most obvious British errors seem almost forgivable. The Arab governments, speaking ior Palestine's Moslems, cried that partition was illegal, though there is no exact precedent for this sit- Wualion and no authority to penalize the alleged illegality. They argued that the Jews have no claim to the Holy Land, which is a matter of opinion, not of fact. They virtually incited their citizens to murder Jews by their talk of a "holy war."

The Senate defeated an amendment by Democratic Leader Barkley (Ky) to a three-point anti-inflation bill sconsorcd by Senator Taft (R- Ohio). The action may result in democratic oppositon which prevailed could prevent passage of the ations. measure in the special session of Congress. The vote against Barkley s amendment was 47 lo 32, . The Taft Bill would authorize the president to consult with industry on voluntary agreements designed to hold prices in line under temporary suspension of the antitrust laws. Barkley wanted to give Mr. Truman 'power to issue orders ' and regulations which would compel such agreements. Taft opposed Barkley's amendment on the ground it would "change the entire nature" of his bill and "impose • compulsory controls over all industry." The Ohioan said adoption would have made it "impossible" to pass the Republican bill before adjournment of Ihe special session Friday. Barkley disagreed and said he does not believe "the president of the United States ought to be required to huckster among business."- . Senator Taft (R-Ohio) bucked determined democratic opposition in a last-hour attempl to get Senate approval of a bill which would let business men get together voluntarily to divide up scarce commodities and materials without run ning -.the risk of anti-trust prosecu ; tions.

Total $405,000,000 Little Rock, Dec. 18 — (IT) —Arkansas' principal crops were worth fc-iu5,000,000 this year — 2 per cent less than the value of 1946 farm production, the state crop reporting service said today. Principal crops were valued at $414,000,1)00 in 1946. Miles McPeek, agricultural statistician for the crop reporting service, said crop production this year was 7 per cent below that of 1946 but that value declined only 2 per cent because of higher prices. Cotton was the big money producer with a value of $238,000,000 or ( 59 per cent of the total. Corn was second in value with $52,000,rice, $42,000,000; ,, . oats, $11, 000,000, nd soybeans for beans, $10,000,000 The state's crops were harvested om 5,923,000 acres in 1947, which s an acreage approximately 4 per :ent larger than that of 1946. Arkansas agriculture started the -eason in a relatively favorable position but a two-month drought oeginning in July reduced yields of most crops substantially, McPeek sjaid.

' Chairman Bridges .(R-NH) of the Senate Appropraitions Committee announced^ immediately after the House stampted its voice vote approval oh the reductions late yesterday that his group would meet to consider the action this afternoon. His only comment to newsmen was that his personal: belief is that some funds should be provided for aid to China on the theory that it is futuile to halt -communism in Europe and allow it to spread in Asia, That was the theme of a parade of witnesses bcforn Bridges' committee yesterday. But the administration has yet to suggest a definite program for helping tha country. Hence although the House wrote help for China into the stop gap ! bill, it provided no funds.

CARPENTER Lake Success, Dec. 18—(/P)—The United States and Russia turned today to their third struggle over atomic energy with a U. S. delegate predicting Russia might eventually change her mind and join other nations in a sweeping world pact controlling the atom. The working committee of the United Nations atomic energy commission was called to meet to plan work on the third phase of its long search for atomic agreement. As the delegates completed preparations for this meeting, Frederick H. Osborn, U. S. deputy on the Atomic Commission, told a news conference in his Manhattan of- tice the Kremlin had made a number of basic economic and political mistakes." He said he felt that Ihere is "greal ignorance" in the Kremlin on the sincerity of proposals for an internalional atomic de devel a u Ihri o opmen mic development author ity backed by the U.

The five law lords of the House of Lords, highest court in the land, announced the government decision yesterday, admonishing against "to strict reliance on the words" of the prayer book. The lords ruled that the use of contraceptives to prevent child bearing does not constitute wilful refusal to consummate marriage and refused a Lender's appeal for annulment of his marriage on the oractice of birth control.

The House, however, took the view that aid for China also is imperative, and broadened the European relief bill to permit such assistance. The House also said the army was asking loo much money for its occupation expenses partiuulai- imple purposes of -furthering his landidacy against U.S Senator J.H.

Davis rode into a third term at he peak of his personal popularity but at a time when he was opposed by the press, the business in- ersts and politicians. His second erm had been charcterized by an unusual amount of turmoil, includ- ,ng: an unsuccessful effort by the .egislature to impeach him. And le was attempting to do something no one else ever had tried. "He had been turned out of the Baptist church," said Charles Jacobson, Davis' private secretary in his "Life of Davis,' 1 and had slig- malized the board of deacons who expelled him as 'quart Baptists'." Despite such obstacles, Davis made one of his famous persona tours and defeated Carroll D. Wood an associate justice of the Arkansas Supreme Court.
