Jesse W. Proctor, 75,
Retired VA Attorney
And D. C. Native, Dies
Jesse W. Proctor, 75, a native of
Washington and retired Veterans'
Administration attorney, died early
today at the Mount Vernon Sana
torium alter an illness of two
months.
A life-long resident of the Dis
trict, Mr. Proctor was employed in
Government service for more than
40 years. He lived at 719 Nineteenth
street N.W.
In 1899, Mr. Proctor was assigned
to the clerical staff of the White
House, where he worked during the
McKinley administration.
After the turn of the century, he
joined the old Bureau of Pensions,
serving first as a special examiner
and later as principal examiner.
When the department was merged
with the Veterans Bureau in 1930,
Mr. Proctor was assigned to the
pension service, continuing to do
the same work.
He was transferred to the office
of the solicitor in 1933, where he
remained until his retirement in
December, 1941.
Active until his illness, in Shrine

from Moscow, was not present to
greet the Secretary of State on his
arrival from Russia.
A section of the Army Band and
a detail of 100 military policemen
were drawn up on the field when
the President arrived. The crowd
pressed forward to the lines around
the airplane and waved and cheered
when the President and Gen. Mar
shall addressed them briefly.
Mr. Truman shook hands warmly
with Gen. Marshall, chatted with
him a few months, then shook hands
with the Secretary's advisors who
flew back with him.
With the President in the welcom
ing party were Senator Connally,
Democrat, of Texas, Secretary of I
Commerce Harriman, Undersecre- j
tary of State Acheson and several
other State Department officials.
Gen. Marshall was dressed in a j
neat, blue business suit and was
hatless as he talked, alternately i
smiling and seriously, with the Chief
Executive. I
Conferred in Iceland.
The Secretary flew from Moscow
by way of Berlin and Iceland, where
he conferred while his plane refueled
last night with Icelandic officials,
officers of the American Legation
and local news men.
Gen. Marshall showed litle signs
of the disappointment he must have
felt at the outcome of his first major
conference in the role of Secretary
of State. When he left Washington
he had hoped for a peace settlement
for Austria and more progress in
establishing economic unity in Ger
many.
At the White House conference
tomorrow night, congressional lead
ers hope to obtain, in addition to a
report on the Moscow conference,
Gen. Marshall's observations on the
Soviet reaction to the "Truman
policy" for extending aid to Greece
and Turkey to check the advance of
communism in the Balkans and Near
East.
The oreeK-Turkish aid legislation
has made considerable progress since
Gen. Marshall recommended the
measure at a White House confer
ence in early March. The $400,000,
000 project to bolster the independ

ate approval while the Secretary way

yesterday, termed the bill "a posi

world peace." The report said thej

Greece and Turkey were responsi
ble for delays in equipping the
United Nations for action.
Chairman Eaton said the com- i
mlttee action was 'a full indorse

Report Hits Soviet Demand.
At one point, the report main
tained Russian demands on Turkey
"would give the Soviet Union mili
tary control of the strategic Dar

would lead to "collapse and subju

armed guerrillas in Greece the re
{Jbrt said:
"At the present time, the bandits
are subversive tools in the hands of
an international body which is tre
mendously strong—strong not only
In arms and money, but in propa
ganda activities all over the world
bo keep world opinion from getting
an accurate picture of the facts."
In a supplemental report, Repre
sentative Javits, Republican, of New
ïork, agreed that this country must
act "to stop at an early moment
the onward march of a Communist
Ideology," but he asserted that the
hope of the world rests in the suc
cess of the United Nations.
He proposed three amendments:
1. "To initiate a proceeding before
the United Nations simultaneously
with giving assistance to Turkey,
which will put efforts to relieve the
pressure on Turkey at least on a
parity with the procedure by the
Security Council * * * to relieve
the external pressure on Greece.
2. "To require as a condition or
relief that the people of any country
assisted shall have a government
supported by a majority of them."
3. "To provide * * * that each
country benefited shall take all eco
nomic and governmental action pos
sible to advance its own reconstruc
tion."
Representative Smith, Republican,
of Wisconsin disagreed completely.
"The time has now come to save
our own land and the heritage we
received," he said in a minority re
port. "* · · If we dissipate our
resources and spread ourselves too
thinly, the world will look else
where for leadership. To follow the
President means that we are again
embarking upon a course that calls
for the exercise of force, not in the
United States but thousands of miles
from it. It will not make for peace—
but war."
Ban on Polish Aid Asked.
The bill's emphasis on curbing
Communist expansion has raised
questions in the minds of some
members of Congress about the post
UNRRA relief program and the
Italian treaty. Specifically:
1. Senator McClellan, Democrat,
of Arkansas has proposed an amend
ment to the relief bill to bar any
aid to Communist-dominated coun
tries, mean'r" Poland. Other Sen
ators want to impose some other
restrictions instead of .leaving the
expenditure of the funds to the
complete discretion of the President.
2. Several Senators, including Sen
ator Bridges, Republican, of New
Hampshire, now are chary of the
Italian peace treaty in view of its
provision leaving the Italian border
with Communist - controlled Yugo
slavia unfortified and unguarded.
The treaties with Italy and the Nazi
satellites are awaiting Senate rati
fication.
Gen. Marshall's views on the
problems developing here, as well as
his account of his experiences in
Moscow, were expected to be sought
by the legislative leaders invited to
meet with him at the White House
tomorrow night. President Truman
arranged the meeting late yesterday.
Marshall Still Hopeful.
Senate President Vandenberg and
Democratic Leader Barkley—if he
gets back from abroad in time—will
lead the Capitol Hill delegation to
the White House. Presumably it
will include House Speaker Martin
and Democratic Leader Rayburn.
and ranking members of the For
eign Affairs Committees in both
chambers.
Gen. Marshall has made it plain
that he has not given up hope of
reaching an understanding with
Russia. He told newsmen en route
that the Foreign Ministers Confer
ence "clarified" differences of opin
ion between Russia and the western
powers by bringing disagreements
sut into the open. He refused to i
hazard a guess when these differ-1
ences would be eliminated.

who held a dozen titles, had as many
castles, some 130,000 acres and a
requted $240,000,000 fortune, is dead
at 65.
Death for the kilted nobleman,
who not only was one of the richest
men in the world but the only Brit
ish peer to enlist as a private hi
World War I, came last night alter
a long illness.
He died at Mountstuart House, hi»
secluded ancestral home in Rothe
say, Scotland, famous for its fabu

rooms and elaborate baths of 6t
types of marble.

been extracted—is his eldest son

"The capital value of hi· estate,''
the British Press Association said
of the old marquess, "cannot be
short of 60,000,000 pounds (about
$240,000,000)."
The family millions came mostly
from coal fields developed by the
late marquess' grandfather and
from 19th century Investment»
which transformed a fishing villag»
into Wales' leading city of Cardiff.
Once Owned Half of Cardiff.
The marquess, a small, shy man
once owned half the property ic ;
Cardiff—a city as big as Omaha
He disposed of his holdings there
in 1938 for 20,000,000 pounds (about
$80,000,000). Until the British mines "
were nationalized at the start of
this year, his coal royalties brought ▼
him 117,000 pounds (about $468,000 '
annually.
The marquess shunned social
functions, public life and publicity.
He traveled extensively, signed hotel
registers as "Mr. Stuart" and in
sisted on privacy. He bought several
hotels in places he liked best, in
cluding hostelries in Tangier and
the famous Rock Hotel at Gibraltar.
His most pretentious castle, Cardiff,
has gold plated staircases.
He succeeded his father as mar
quess In 1900. He wed Augusta :

daughters. His other titles included
