the war as “open aggression

missions and diplomatic pressure
on the Indonesian Republic to
submit to Dutch demands.)

the nominations, principally Perl

failure of a Republican move ;o

Perlman was confirmed 58 to 21
after Senator Brewster (R-Me)
abandoned a fighl to del y or

the GOP leadership’s failure to

the matter has ccme up,” Brews
ter ehouted.

Senator Donnell CR-Mo), who
favored confirmation of Perlman,
objected that Brewster was uti
lizing the same tactics the Demo
crats used when he succeeded ;n
having a clerk read a long ad
dress made by Tydings more than
six years ago.
The Senate finally voted to have
the clerk stop the reading, and
Brewster then gave up the fight.
He said he did so at the urging
oi his Republican colleagues.
Tydings objected vehemently
when Brewster accused hi:n of
taking part in a filibuster against
the resolution by Senator Kem
(R-Mo) to authorize an investiga
tion into Attorney General Clark's
handling of the Kansas City case.
Tydings declared he was “for the

The long Perlman dispute fol
lowed a bitter attack by Senator
Connally (D-Tex) upon Senator
Ferguson (R-Mich) after Fergu
son accused Democrats of a fili
buster against the investigation.
Ferguson had demanded a vote
on the Kem resolution.
Connally Censured
Senator Vandenberg (R-Mich),
the presiding officer, ordered Con
nally to “take his seat” at one
point after Senators Brooks (R
Iil) and Taft (R-Ohio) had pro
tested that Connally’s barbed
words violated Senate rules.
■While jammed galleries titter

Presidential ambitions and cf
waiting “to capitahze, get public

The Texan said Ferguson had
attacked Clark on the Senate floor
where Clark had no chance to
reply and was “playing' for the
headlines, publicity and political
venom.” *
His face flushing as he warmed
to his attack amid laughs from
the Democrats and the galleries,
Connally said Ferguson had at
tempted' to cover Clark and Presi
dent Truman with “innuendoes,
slime, and slander.”
“I have stood a'l of this I can
stand.” the veteran Texan con
tinued. “I had no desire to en
gage in this debate had not the
junior Senator from Michigan got
ten up again and covered the
whole case with the vomit of his
P’ejudice and rancor and hatred
and hope and ambition.”
Ferguson sat nearby pale but
silent. Other Republicans stirred
ir their chairs.
The galleries laughed again as
Connally described politicians
who get Presidential ambitions.
“When a Senator gets the ambi
tion to run for President of the
United States, no longer is he
i worth a damn, ’ Connally con
Connally said that if Ferguror
were a Texas judge he would be
disqualified for his “venom,
spleen and political hatred.”
Finally Brooks broke in to say
that Connally had violated Senate
rules prohibiting one Senator
from reflecting upon the charac
tei or Integrity of another.
“I call the Senator to order,”
Taft yelled at Vandenberg.
Vandenberg directed Connally
to take his seat.
“Why do I have to take my
seat?” Connally p"otested.
Vandenberg read the Senr'e
Connally denied one statement
and offered to withdraw it.
But Senator Hawkes (R-NJ) de
manded that the official Senate
reporter of debate read the rec
“Boo.” Connally turned around
and shouted at Hawkes.
Vandenberg rapped violently for
order and announced, “this is go

He said that Connally definitely
had violated the rule and put to
a voice vote whether to allow
Connally to eontin uc"orde.’r‘i
Connally to continue “in order."
Although Republican “n o ’ s ’
seemed louder than Democratic
“yes’s.” Vandenberg allowed
Connally to continue.
“I don’t want to reflect upon

and sweat, toil and tears” terms
were prominent among those who
invited him to address them at a
special meeting behind closed
doors next Wednesday.
May Resign
Attlee accepted. No official ink
ling was given of the line he would
take in answer to his “friendly”
critics, but the possibility that he
might offer to resign—if calls for
stronger leadership persisted—was
freely discussed.
Bevin — A leading candidate to
succeed Attlee should the Prime
Minister step down — and the oth
er prominent political figures who
spoke over the weekend were in
general agreement about the rea
sons Britain is sliding toward the
brink of crisis:
1. The multi-billion dollar Amer
ican loan is running out much fast
er than Britain expected: It will
be exhausted as early as Decem
ber, by many estimates: and—
2. Production of goods for ex
port is not rising fast enough to
meet Britain’s import debt, offi
cially reckoned at more than $1,
600,000,000 this year. A major rea
son is—
3. Coal production, under the
five-day week introduced last
spring, is not yet high enough,
Horner, speaking for the miners,
said yesterday the target of 200,
000.000 tons this year probably
could not be reached.
Unions Seek Aid
On Wednesday, after his session
with the Laborites, Attlee is sched
uled to receive a deputation of
mine workers’ leaders who are ask
ing special inducements, such as
more food and houses for the men,
to spur production.
Should the Prime Minister grant
these, heads of other unions are
primed to ask similar concessions
tor their members. The more that
is consumed at home, the less
there will be for the export drive.
The less Britain exports, the less
food she can import.
Not all those who demand "ac
tion and leadership” from the
Prime Minister are ready to say
what action he should take or m
which direction he should lead.
