In government halls where the Japanese conqueror and his pup pet government once sat, the rulers of a freed China must tackle the monumental problems of internal strife and reconstruc tion. Heavy Task The government declared the task of reconstruction was heavier than that of waging war, and urged the people to unite in bring ing peace and prosperity to China. The paramount job of the mo ment was to halt the government Communist fighting in Manchuria. Hopes For Peace General Marshall, special U. S. envoy who arranged the truce for China proper, was reported hope ful that an agreement halting the Manchurian conflict could be made shortly after the government and Communist negotiators arive from Chungking later this week. On the political front, Minister of Organization Chen Li-Fu told a press conference the National Assembly might be convened early in June to adopt China's new con stitution. Meeting Delayed Chiang Kai-shek postponed the Assembly, originally scheduled to meet May 5, as one concession to the Communists, who had been demanding a delay. BRITISH DISCOVER ATTEMPT ON S P Kitbag Full Of Explosives Found On Magazine Of Destroyer Chevron HAIFA, Palestine, May 1—M5)— A kitbag with explosives was found in the messvoom over the magazine of the British destroyer Chevron when it arived Wednesday, officials said. A communique said 13 Palestine sailors aboard the Chevron—which six weeks ago intercepted a Truk ish ship carrying illegal Jewish immigrants—had been taken into custody under suspiciori of intend ing to blow up the destroyer. The Chevron was carrying the sailors from Alexandria, Egypt, to their discharge point here. The kitbag, found after they had dis embarked, had fitted detonators. A length of fuse as a secondary means of detonation also was at tached. When the sailors were searched, one was found to have a detonat or in his clothes and the others carried concealed items of explo sives, the communique said.

The British loan argument found two midwestern Republicans on opposite sides. Senator Brooks (R.-Ill.) called the proposed credit extension a “world-wide WPA pro ject that will lower our American standard of living.” Senator Hick enlooper (R.-Iowa) countered that it was “an earnest effort to stabi lize a great portion of the economy of the world which will advance the cause of humanity.” To House First A Democrat, Edwin C. Johnson of Colorado, meanwhile disclosed a plan to shunt the hot issue over to the House for the first decision. He told a reporter that he would raise the technicality that the legislation is a revenue raising measure and as such must originate in the House. Arguing before the Senate Bank ing committee for extension of the OPA another year after June 30, Secretary of Agriculture Anderson said he would favor suspension of price controls on meat if the meat distribution situation is not cleared up in 90 days. Anderson told re porters later he meant that price suspension should be tried as an experiment if present government remedial steps fail, but that the government powers of control should be continued. Attacks Merger Secretary Forrestal returned to the attack on the Army-Navy mer ger legislation now being consider ed by the Senate Naval com mittee. He praised President Tru man’s “basic objective’’ of unify ing the armed forces, but said the measure introduced to carry out the President’s recommendations “is based upon a major premise which is false.” The Senate Mili tary committee already has ap proved the bill.
