OREN HARRIS — This Ad Paid forby Oren Harris Missouri Cops Kill Couple of Bandits Osceola. Mo., July 23 —if)— A straight shooting sheriff and bis deputy ended an "Ozarks vacation" for two bandits near hero yesterday less than 30 minutes after the Jumansvillc, Mo., bank svas robbed. Sherifi Logan Peery and Deputy J. E. Kincaid caught the pair changing license plates in a brush- fringed country lane and killed both of them in a brisk gun battle. From social security cards found on them, they were identified as Philip Joseph Cronin, 45, of Lawrence, Essex County, Mass.. and Bill Frizicll, address unknown. Will Reynolds, resort operator, said they had posed as brothers named. "Drum" at hi& place where they had spent two weeks with two women—one red- haired and the other a brunette. "They were very handy with pistols." Reynolds recalled. "Much of their time was spent .at shooting at sticks in the river." A few hours after they had been slain a red-haired woman was picked up at Pittsburg, Kas.. by police who intercepted a Nevada, Mo., taxicab in which she was a passenger. Police Chief Tom Stow- crs at Pittsburg said she had admitted being with the two gunmen earlier and gave the name ot "Drum." Officers believed the brunette also was somewhere in southeast Kansas. Peery and Kincaid spot'«d the bandits soon after giving chase. As they pulled up behind their car, the sheriff stepped out with revolver drawn and Kincaid followed with a high-powered rifle. The gunmen ran around the car, one firing twice. The one identified as 1'rizzell was killed by Kincaid as he seized an automatic pistol from the car and fired. Peery shot the other as he raised his head up over the hood. In their car was found :$4,700 and a rental slip for a car, issued at Hartford, Conn., and answering the description of the one they were driving. Whether .all the money had been taken from the Humansville bank could not be determined until a more careful check. O. E. Simms, cashier of the APPOINTED J.W.

"The inability of Congress to protect the American citizen makes it \ecessary i'or organized labor to protest unanimously," Keys said. Elsewhere, additional state governments moved to control rents. The Illinois legislature .nieels in special session loday to consider legislation which would control rents and decarc a moratorium on evictions. In New Jersey a bill freezing rents at the June 1 level was passed by the state Senate and signed by Gov. Waller 10. Edge. The bill gives landlords the right to apply for increases up to 10 per cent. Buyers strikes— both organicd and spontaneous — continued in many communities. The Chicago Industrial Union Council (CIO) claimed ihal a CIO- Sponsored "buyers slowdown" had caused Ihe prices of some basic commodities to drop. "Chicago is holding Ihe line," the council said. "There is unquestionably strong buyers' resistance. We will keep up the pressure until all prices get down xo reasonable levels." The meat supply in Philadelphia where Ifj consumer, veteran and labor groups organized demonstrations, was reported thc largest since 19-10.

The American meat institute said thc livestock and meat indus- Irics were working their way "out of thc chaos and shortages created by four years of OPA."' "If OPA regulations ever again are imposed on industry it will simply mean that thc black market which flourished under OPA will get a new lease on life." the institute .said.

"The farmers loday aren't making any more money than they were under subsidies." he said. "But now that prices roflecl their actual costs they feel more secure — and no wall i'armers want cows "If qontrols and subsidies are reslored, we'may well see a swing away from the production of dairy foods and inlo production of other loss nutritious foods in which returns are assured." At Washington Ihe Commerce Department charged that some sections of industrv have been nold- ing prices down in an effort to lobby Congress into refusing to restore the OPA. Meanwhile, the Foremen's Association of America said it would close 500 Dolroil planls in a citywide strike Aug. 1 if price controls had not been reestablished by that lime. Robert. H.

Since they have assumed this paternal icsponsibility, and since they exert a considerable influence in Washington, it might be interesting to have these executives' explanation of Ihe CIO's ul- limale hopes and aims regarding yij'ice control. As of now, their v.^iind is <i litlle confusing. Lasl week, Phi)j,i Murray, CIO president, outlined lo a congressional committee some proposals for a "progressive labor -policy for the future."

A high War Department official aid Ihe report was :i.ow being prepared and would be submitted immediately upon completion lo Ihc Scnalc War Investigation committee. Royal] demanded a "full report" it was learned, after Iho Senate committee disclosed that mortal- shells of Ihe type manufactured by a Garsson munitions firm had caused Iragic casuallies during the batlle of the Bulge. The disclosure came as Sen Owen Brewsler, R., Me., said thc Senate commitlco was on the irail of war profileering cases :."ar more sensational than the inquiry inlo Ihe munitions combine headed by Dr.- Henry M. Garsson and his brother, Murray Garsson. Thc commillcc, slopping up ils inquiry inlo the Garsson interests, said President Truman had agreed t.o make available thc income tax records of the principal figures >n Ihc munitions combine. This was believed to be a prelude to Justice Department action. The committee pledged every effort to track down responsibility for the defcclivc shells. Royall promised Ihc committee a report "as soon as possible" oir 1. What Ihe army did about the shell. 2. Whether any attempts were made to trace back thc manufacturers through lot numbers. 3. Wno was killed or injured where, under what circumstances, and whether there were any witnesses. Qualified sources said thc War Department should have, some where in its voluminous Hies, "on the spot" reports describing thc incidents. Disclosure that 4.2 inch mortal- shells had "blown up" in the ?aces of American troops was made al Ihe commillce's hearings yeslerday inlo thc 16-firm Illinois munitions combine which handled $78,000,000 worth of government war con- Iracls. Maj. Gen. Alden H. Waitt, chief of the Army's chemical warfare service, testified that he had "sweal blood" over the killing of American boys by the defective shells. Waitt said the army had sought to track down markers of the de- leclivc shells bul only "Nnsalis- lactory" results thus far. He said, however, Ihal thc Erie Basin Metal Products Co., a key firm in the midweslcrn combine, was thc largest manuiacturer of the 4.2 inch shells procured by thc chemical warfare service Hcalso testified that Dr. Henry G a r s s o n, described as the "brains" of thc combine, had aided in the design of thc shells.

VAUGHN Tokyo, July 24 —(UP)— Soviet and American representatives on Ihc Allied Control Council for Japan clashed again -today when Ll. Gen. Kuzma Derevyanko accused Chairman George Alcheson, Jr. ,of trying to force personal opinions on thc four power group. Dcrevyanko's charge was con- lamed in a formal statement read during thc council's bi-weekly session. He said he was "obliged to protest" against Atcheson's ' quite groundless and extremely biased remarks" on Russian recommendations for Japanese labor legislation,.;^ . ... -..-'. -, '•T'befieve iHe activities of the council will be bettereed if all its members, including Mr. Chairman, will act in a spirit of genuine cooperation and not attempt to force individual likes and dislikes on each otter and the council as -a whole, 'Derevyanko said. The Soviet represenlalive, who has clashed with Atcheson several times during the council sessions accused the American delegale of assuming an "unobjeclive attitude, Derevyanko said, "reflected upon the inilialive of olher council members in setting forth essential problems of Ihe occupation policy. Derevyanko said he thought Ihc council was "not Ihe proper place for ideological disputes." "We meel here not :Cor the purpose of listening lo prelenlions and argumentations on Communism and Fascism," the Russian delegate said. Derevyanko earlier had proposed confiscation of "all Fascist, militaristic and anti-Allied literature in Japan." Alcheson declared that such a plan would require •Nazilike methods" and that a mailer of principle would be sacri- liced for no practical gain "It would be an entirely different mailer if there were in progress a propaganda campaign for Ihc distribution and sale of such publications, but such is nol the case, 'Alcheson said. "On Ihc contrary, ihc Japanese government continues to collect propaganda pursuant to the supreme .commander's directive of March 17," he added. Under the proposed Soviet plan, " , c ? n . u ', al commission would be established under the Japanese government would bo given two weeks to draft a law punishing anyone guilty of hiding objectionable literature. Derevyanko's plea for Allied alertness against any possible revival of militarism in Japan was suppo.-ted by British and Chinese icpresenlatives. They disapproved details of the plan, however, as not in Keeping with democratic practices. Terminal Pay in Bonds Is Disapproved By WILLIAM F. ARBOGA8T Washington, July 24 —W—House supporters of terminal pay for GI's and Gobs shouted an emphatic . no loday lo thc Senate's plan to issue bonds cashable only after five years. Rallying behind the cry that "if cash is good enough for officers it s good enough for the enlisted men, thc group planned to fight for restoration of thc original House provision for lump sum payments. Thai fight will be made in the ^natc-Housc conference to which the bill passed by thc Senate late .yesterday may be sent by night- 1311. "If cash is good enough :"or the officers it's good enough for the ?£ ll !< cd men ". said Rep. Sikcs (D-Fla) who probably will be one of the House conferees."The main argument for'•'payments in bonds," Sikes added, "is that it would be inflationary to pay out so much cash at one time, It's a strange thing that the only time some people worry about inflation is when the GI's are liable to get some cash. I didn't hear any cries of inflation when we voted to give several billion dollars to Great Britain." Rogers and Sikes both noted that thc bond payment plan was not even considered by the House when it passed the bill without a dissenting vote on June 11 .The Senate action yesterday was by voice vote. The bond provision, suggested by President Truman after the House acted on its own bill, provides that payments generally are to be in bonds unless the amount is IRSS than $50. In that case the recipient would get cash. The bonds would be in $25 denominations, non-negotiable and payable al the enc>,of five years at their face value plus interest ac- ci ted aUtwo and one half percent. Payments ir^arnounts other than a be in cash, A 5- for instance, bonds, Free Enterprize Group Identifies Its Activities Little Rock, July 24 -(/Pi— The Arkansas Free Enterprise Association, popularly presumed to be an anti-union group, was identified by its executive director loday as ail organization lo combat un-American activities.

The Senate left unchanged these House, /provisions: ,, < -» Payments to-be made to all cnV listed personnel of •, the armed forces who have serve'd honorably at any time since Sept. 8, 1939; amounts would be based on two and one-half days to furlough time for each month of service to a max- inum of 120 days and less deductions for furlough time actually received; payments'would be made upon application filed up to Sept. 1, 1947. , The Senate provided in addition thai no service personnel shall receive paymenls for more than flO days of unused furlough time accruing after September 1 of this year. Thc House bill contained no such provision but declared a con' gressional policy that no terminal leave payments be made in iuture wars. The Senate limited to 30 days the accumulated leave payable in future wars. Heretofore, only officers have been paid for unused leave time up lo a maximum of 120 days. o • Palestine Issue May Be Placed Before Council By MAX HARRELSON New York. July 24 —(/P) —The controversial Palestine question was slated today for a place on the crowded agenda of 1he United Nations general assembly which meets in New York Seplcmbcr 23. Arkady Sobolcv, acting secretary-general, disclosed lasl night lhat Egypt and Iraw, acting in concert with five other Arab stales, lad asked assembly action to help bring the strife-torn Brilish mandate under U. N. trusteeship. Thc Palestine disclosure came in Ihe midst of these developments: Soviel circles said the Palestine queslion might be raised by Russia during discussion of Transjor- dan's application .for membership in the United Nations, scheduled to be held within the next few days before a committee of the security council. Committee No. 2 of thc Atomic. Energy Commission was called into session (9 a. m. CST) to begin discussions on ihc U. S. proposal for creation of an atomic development authority to control atomic energy. Thc security council was scheduled lo mccl 6 p. m.' <CST) for what was expected to "ao a brief session on routine mailers. Thc Russian informant declined lo amplify his statement that thc Palestine question might be injected into the discussion of membership applications. He also refused to disciose the nature of remarks which he said thc Soviet representative would make on Transjordan's application. it was recalled, however, that ooth Ihe Soviet press and radio lave declared lha't Transjordan is independent in name only, since Biilish troops remain in the country. No dale has ycl been sel for con- sidci ^tion of membership applications, although an associate of Eelco N. Van Klei'fcns. president, of the security council, said the committee might meet later this week. The committee has before it applications 'roni Albania, Afghanistan, Outer Mongolia and Transjordan.
