think it fair to assume Mr. Tru
man would veto the measure.
“Commendable Features”
“It has many commendable
features and is not a drastic piece
of legislation, despite anything
that has been said to the con
trary,” he asserted.
The President's bill, George add
ed, “admittedly” included some
drastic proposals. George said,
however, “they simply would have
given him powers which he would
never have used except in extreme
emergencies.”
“I think we should proceed with
the bill, whether it goes back to
committee or is threshed out on
the floor of the Senate,” he said.
“We should send it to conference
with the E use, and get some leg
islation that will enable us to meet
grave err - ;encies as they arise.”
He saw no reason why the Tru
man bill could not be amended and
passed—perhaps \ ”'h two or three
amendments—unless a filibuster
developed during the June crush of
appropriation bills, price control
extension and legislation.
George ci ceded, however, that
return of the bill to committee
might mean its death.

Maintain Tradition
Fifteen years ago he retired

since had retired but made the
run each Memorial Day to keep
the tradition alive.
Ford was at his home in Red

the yearly trip. But he sent
flowers down to 107 and asked
the rest of the boys to do him
the favor.
They did. At 8:45 Thursday

They, said it would be done

WARNINGS

Instead, he said, “they seek to
block every move we make to
write an honorable and lasting
peace treaty.”
Carney, speaking at ceremonies
at the Arlington Memorial bridge,
said he was “not optimistic” about
the chance of avoiding another
war.
He said American efforts to
write the peace are being obstruct
ed by a powerful and determined
nation “whose very concept of
government is written by a politi
cal party which works for the
achievement of its pur poses
through the medium of fomenting
disorder and disunity.”
He denounced the “hasty and
selfish demobilization” of the
armed forces, which, he said, had
stripped the United States of “the
only prestige which would have
lent authority to its councils and
to its principles.”
Carney said that other powers
“will only regard a weak America
with contempt.”
Bradley, wartime commander of
the 12th Army group in Europe,
said the easiest way to lose the
peace is “by default,” by “re
treating behind our walls to live
in dangerous isolation.”
He said it is time for the na
tions to remember that peace can
not endure in a world half gaunt
and half fat, half naked, and half
clothed.
Bradley said, however, that
this is a time fcr hope, not for
despair, because “never in all
world history have we had a better
chance to achieve peace.”
