DODSON Washington, Aug. 6 — (/P) — The government's $1,600,000,000 public works program ground to a virtual halt today. Federal agencies — under presi- tial edict — set about choosing $700,000,000 worth of construction to defer _at Jeast until spring. Calling ihe step necessary to "comply with the president's anti- inflation budget, "-Reconversion Di rector JohivR. Steelman yesterday clamped on a three-way moratou- um that: ,. 1. Prevents any agency from letting contracts for any •- new construction during the next 56 <1ays without his- e'xpres-s permission: 2. Provides that either. Civilian Production Administrator John D. Small or Housing Expediter Wilson W.' Wyaft 'must • recommend, and the' reconversion director approve, non-deferrable federal construction to 1 ' be Started between Oct. T, 1946 and April 1, 1947, and 3. Requires the agencies to put on the deferred list at least $700,000,000 r worth of construction, some Of ,which may be eliminated entirely. An official 'familiar with the moratorium plans told a reporter the search v fpr'deferrable projects most likely will turn first to such military construction as ^warehouses and officers' clubs, some airports, aiid certain ' agricultural conservation and reclamation projects. Another official predictedj that careful^ study also will be given to flood control projects^and to public highways. These officials emphasized, however, that no specific projects to be postponed have yet been, chosen.! -They pointed out that ,agen- , submit revised estimates to Steelman The reconversion director made committed for" work scheduled to: start before October 1. j Also exempted under the order! are -projects- costing no more than' $3,000. and veterons housing and hospitals, overseas military po- jects, the Manhattan atomic energy project and construction of access roads to timber lands. As an example of the drain the federal program might impose-on supplies if it were carried out in full, a CPA official said it would take about 27 percent of the entire supply of cement and around three percent of the total Jumb^r output. In calling for postponement or elimination , of projects, Stcelmin urged federal agencies ma'c-ng loans or grants to state and locuJ groups "to seek their cooperation in postponing public works construction wherever this -can oe done without jeopardizing hei'tir safety or. essential services." o Cravens Is Winner Ovier Whittaker Little Rock, Aug. 7 — (/P)— A complete count of votes cast in the Fourth Arkansas Congressional District's Democratic primary was awaited today to' determine the winner in the race In which Rep. Fadjp, Cravens, Fort Smith, held a 400 vote lead over his fellow townsman, Lee Whittaker, with slightly more than two-thirds of the pro cincts reported. Cravens had' 5310 votes and Whittaker 5913 in 193 of the 11-county district's 279 precincts. Only two counties reported complete tabulations,- which/ included most of the larger, voting precincts. The vote was one of the lightest in- the district's history. When county officials reported tabulations suspended at midnight, Whittaker was ahead in seven counties. Rep. W. F.

Republican and Democratic, of the. potent House Rules Committee agreed today that the defeat of Rep. Slaughter (D-Mo) is an important feather in the administration's 1 cap. ' .i Rep. Michcner of Michigan! who also ','is acting Republican )«ader, told la. reporter .-thar-should«Uhe Democrats retain control of the . next congress, the Ml's>ou'rlan 1 s fc- i Tplacemcnt would help' the rules I *i group "function in the way It is • i»t€prtedv!v-«' ».".-•/*»...*-: ••.&.* ft til ThatJ^Mlchencr- added, is to send to .thc\Jf;[$usc floor/thc legislative'' program'of the party in power. - It was Slaughter's opposition within the commlttM to mahy administration mcasXires that - led President Truman tp call -publicly for his defeat in Tuesday's Fifth District primary iri Missouri. Chairman Sabath-' (D-I11) commented lhal wilh Slaughter's departure the southerners -on the /jrufcs body "no longer Will control The commitlec has, 12 members, only four of Ihem Republicans. But of the eight Democrats only, two! arc administration stalwarts —Sabath and .Rep. James -. Delaney (N.Y.), because of tie vote blocks action on any measure" under consideration, Slaughter ;ahd his five 1 Dixie colleagues have.been able to make their views prevail: Sabath said the balance will be swung still further away from the southern group if Rep. Howard A'SmitM D-Va) resigns to run for the uhexpired portion of the Senate term of the late Carter Glass. Former Rep. Burch (D-Va) now holds the Senate scat, af least : until the November elections, Smith, who won renominalion Tuesday, has declined to comment on persistenl reports of such a possibility. Pointing to specific legislative proposals whoso prospects they say have been brightened by Slaughter's defeat, both Sabalh and Mich- u.^ncr cited measures to boost the '^minimum wage from 40 to 65 cents .an hour and to create a permanent fair employment practice commission. The minimum wage bill passed Ihe Senate with-pi-partisan support before it ran afoul Ihb rules committee in the house, a southern filibuster blocked a Senate vote on the administration's FEPC measure, but the GOP is committed to it in a 1044 platform plunk. As Michcner put it, "the Democrats have Might among themsel- •J vcs and thus have made the rules committee a legislative group instead of a clearing house." He added that this situation did not prevail under republican control and would not if the GOP takes over the House next January. While the Senate also has a rules committee, the group confines its activi- lies lo decisions on procedure, rather than determining what Jegisr Jation should be cleared to the full chamber for a vole. 47TH YEAR; VOL. 47—NO. 253 Air View Looking of Hope's Business District East on the Missouri Pacific j—Meant Newspaper EntefortM AM'rt.
