Ukraine UNRRA Chief
Appeals to La Guardia
Against Fund Threat
By the Associated Press
BERLIN, June 29.—Marshall Mac
Duffle today said he had sent
UNRRA Director Florello La
Guardia an urgent plea against
congressional action threatening to
cut off funds for relief in Russia
and declared the organization’s work
in the Ukraine "is a bright spot
in the picture of Anglo-American
Soviet relations.”
Mr. MacDuffle is chief of the
United Nations Relief and Rehabili
tation Administration’s mission to
the Ukraine.
He refused to release the text of
the message to Mr. LaGuardia, but
said in an interview that the mes
sage "gives in detail a report on our
work and my stand on this issue
and points up the extreme necessity
for continuing UNRRA relief in the
Ukraine.”
says i-o-operation Was Complete.
He said that during his four
months in the Ukraine, he and 10
other members of his mission had
received complete co-operation from
the Russians and that UNRRA had
built up a great deal of good will
among the Soviet people.
The United States House of Rep
resentatives yesterday passed and
sent to the Senate a deficiency ap
propriations bill allotting $465,000,
000 to UNRRA. The measure con
tained a proviso that American
newspaper correspondents must be
free to report the use of UNRRA
funds. This, in effect, prohibits the
use of UNRRA funds in any country
which censors news accounts of
UNRRA activities.
President Truman reported to
Congress June 24 that Russia had
refused to exempt correspondents
covering UNRRA activities from her
customary censorship regulations.
Mr. MacDuffie, husky, balding for
mer New York lawyer, is en route to
Washington to report on progress
made by his mission. He was inter
viewed here in an Army hospital,
where he stopped to reeceive treat
ment for a minor ailment.
Given Widest Latitude.
He said that when eight foreign
correspondents, including three
Americans, toured the Ukraine a
month ago, they were given the wid
est latitude by the Russians and "we
picked the spots we wanted to see.
at random.”
"As far as I know, the correspon
dents' reports went out uncensored,”
he said. "At any rate, when the cor
respondents left the Ukraine I had
the impression they had seen all
they wanted to of UNRRA activities.
When I saw them later in Moscow
they had no complaints about cen
sorship.”
Rembert James. Associated Press
correspondent in Moscow who made
the tour, said he and his colleagues
“moved freely” around Kiev, Minsk
and vicinity, and that persons inter
viewed talked frankly. He said that
when the correspondents returned to
Moscow they submitted their news
stories through the usaul censorship
channels.
In New York, Mr. LaGuardia said
he was confident Mr. MacDuffle
would be able to continue “his very
efficient job.”
.;t don't run Congress, Mr. La
Ghjardia said. “Hbwever,' Congress
00 co-operate yesterday by deleting
**Yery vicious amendment. I am
sure Mr. MacDuffle has nothing to
worry about and that he will be able
to continue his very efficient job. I
am grateful to him knd Thf fine job
or the Ukrainian government.”

Let me know, amid my bitter anguish

That my loss, how great no word can

With no fear, but with sweet confiding

Silver Price Stymied
In Joint Committee
By Associated Press
Members of a joint congressional
committee considering differences
between the House and Senate in
the Treasury-Postoffice appropria
tions bill said yesterday no agree
ment has been reached as to the
price of silver.
The Senate voted to boost the
price from 71.11 to 90.3 cents an
ounce by July 1 with a rise to $1.29
two years later. As the appropria
tions bill passed the House, it pegged
the price ^ 71.11 for two years.
Citizens' Committee
To Meet Tuesday on
D. C. Expansion Plan
The newly formed Commissioners’
Planning Committee will meet at
2:30 p.m. Tuesday at the District
Building to Consider the vast $228,
000,000 six-year expansion program
of public buildings and services re
cently recommended by Engineer
Commissioner Gordon R. Young to
bring these facilities into line with
the war growth of city population.
The group was named at the
suggestion of Brig. Gen. Young to
work his “preliminary" recommen
dations-'into a final master plan of
city development to be submitted
in legislative form to the next ses
sion ol Congress.
Gen. Young's six-year plan rep
resents four months of work scieen
ing even more elaborate programs
prepared by the various municipal
department heads and fitting them
all together in a single picture.
Scaling Down Expected.
It was considered likely in Dis
trict Building circles that any final
plan recommended by the commit
tee for enactment will represent a
considerable scaling down of the
initial program, particularly as it
relates to items chargeable to the
general fund and a $60,000,000 sub
way, because the demands which
current operating costs are placing
on the fund are leaving nothing
available for new building.
Under the plan as it now stands,
new schools, police and fire stations,
libraries, health and welfare in
stitutions and the like casting $102.
000.000 are recommended together
with $47,000,000 win highway im
provements and $19,000,000 in water
system expansion—the latter two
being financed out of their respec
tive funds plus Federal aid and bor
rowing, In addition, it is suggested
the $60,000,000 subway be financed
initially by the Federal Government,
which Gen. Young says is responsi
ble for the downtown traffic con
gestion but with the District to
repay half.
Those projects ultimately to be
, approved by Congress in the 1947
District budget are considered fin
anced by the coming year's taxes
and removed from committee con
sideration.
In addition to the three Com
missioners, members of the commit
tee include Wilbur S. Finch, presi
dent of the Federation of Citizens
Associations: Bruce T. Stewart, rep
resenting Woolsey W. Hall, presi
dent of the Federation of Civic As
