Committee Showdown
Ori Biddle Nomination
To U.N. Post Sought
By tht Associated has
Senate Democrats sought a
Foreign Relations Committee
showdown today on President
Truman’s long-pending appoint
ment of Francis Biddle as Amer
ican representative on the
United Nations Economic and
Social Council.
Their demand for committee
action on the nomination of the
former Attorney General came at
a lime when thlr own as well as
Republican ranks appear divided
over the President’s possible choice
of Mark P. Ethridge. Louisville pub
lisher, as directing head of the
$400,000,000 Greek-Turkish aid pro
gram.
The Biddle appointment has been
pigeonholed by the Republican-con
trolled committee since January 29.
In the interval, the council already
has met and adjourned, to meet
again next fall.
Republican opposition to Mr. Bid
dle was reported to stem from his
‘‘New Deal" viewpoint which some
GOP committee members think
should not be carried to the U. N.
Council.
Vandenberg Stand Awaited.
However, a Democratic Senator
who favors the nomination told a
reporter he thinks the fate of the
appointment rests on whether
Chairman Vandenberg decides to
go along, even if reluctantly.
Senator Vandenberg, who put an
informal freeze order on the nom
ination while the Senate was bat
tling over the President’s choice of
David F. Lilienthal to head the
Atomic Control Commission, has
refused comment.
Hie “New Deal” issue also said to
have been raised against Mr. Eth
ridge by Southern Democrats as
well as Republicans. One of these
Democrats said he told administra
tion lieutenants when they ap
proached him about the matter that
he would oppose confirmation of
Mr. Ethridge if he were nominated.
The Senator added that other South
erners have expressed the same view
to him.
There have been indications that
the State Department would like to
have Mr. Ethridge take over the
directorship of the Greek-Turkish
program. He is serving as American
representative on the United Na
tions group investigating Greek bol
der disturbances. But with a Senate
fight in sight, some Senators ex
pressed doubt that any such ap
pointment would be made.
Nelson, La Follette Mentioned.
Senator Vandenberg was repre
sented as insisting on a non-contro
versial nominee to prevent a repeti
tion of the Lillienthal battle.
, In this connection, there are re
ports that the President has con
sidered among others the names oi
Donald M. Nelson, former War Pro
duction Board chairman, and for
mer Senator Robert M. La Follette,
Wisconsin Progressive who lost In
the Republican primary last year.
The Senate’s right to confirmation
remained in doubt as Senate and
House conferees scheduled a meet
ing later in the day to iron out
differences in their versions of the
Greek-Turkish bill. The House left
out a confirmation clause, but Sen
ators expressed confidence it would
be reinserted in the final version.
Five Coney Island Buildings
Razed in $125,000 Fire
By Axociatwi Pr«x
NEW YORK, May 13.—Fire at
Coney Island destroyed five build
ings and smudged a dozen more last
night.
Firemen fought the wind-fanned
flames for four hours. Doctors said
they treated 22 persons, mostly fire
men, for smoke poisoning, but none
was injured seriously.
Fire officials estimated the loss at
$125,000. The amusement park is
scheduled to open this week end for
the summer season.
The fire broke out in the kitchen
of a bar and grill and spread to a
restaurant and three other buildings
housing amusement attractions,
fireman said.

Temperature of 100 Degrees
Found 75 Miles Above Earth
By Thomas R. Henry
Seisnc* MHor Tk» Stof
There is a temperature of above
U)0 degrees Fahrenheit about 75
miles above the earth.
It rises from about 30 below at
an altitude of 50 miles, after having
dropped from about 35 at around
40 miles.
This second "inversion layer,"
where the thermometer goes up
rather than down with increasing
altitude, has been found from auto
matic records carried on rocket
bomb flights.
Supports Sensational Theories.
The first hot belt at extreme
heights, now penetrated by record
ing Instruments for the first time,
was reported to the American
Meteorological Society two weeks
ago. The higher one is more re
markable and supports the most
sensational theories that, after a
certain distance above the earth,
it gets hotter and hotter. This is
the first experimental evidence to
support these predictions.
Existence of the second inversion
layer developed from study of the
records by scientists of the Naval
Research Laboratory here. The
probable explanation, they say, is
that at the higher altitude there is
an enormous absorption of the
shorter invisible ultraviolet ugnt
Don the sun by the gas molecules
which constitute the extremely thin
atmosphere. Very little of this radi
ation reaches the surface of the
murth. Great amounts of heat are
created in the absorption process.
Whether there is another stratum
of declining temperatures followed
by another inversion layer with still
higher temperatures may be deter
mined by future flights. The naval
research scientists say it seems
theoretically probable.
Type of Death Speculative.
It is difficult to predict, they say,
whether a human being unprotected
at much greater heights would boil
to death from the heat before he
were fried to death by the enormous
ultraviolet radiation falling upon
him.
On one flight a few months ago,
seeds of com and rye were carried
in an effort to determine if cosmic
rays, about 12 times more abundant
100 miles high than at the earth’s
surface, would produce mutations
resulting in new species. The seeds
have been tested at Harvard Uni
versity, but the results have been
entirely negative. The com appar
ently was so injured by the great
heat that it failed to germinate
properly. The rye grew normally
and showed no change.
New Labor Curb Laws
Studied at Virginia
Federation Meeting
■y tha Associated Press
RICHMOND, Va., May 13.—Reso
lutions on Virginia’s new Public
Utilities Labor Relations Act and
"right to work” legislation were ex
pected at the convention of the
State Federation of Labor today.
During the opening day of the
group’s 51st annual meeting, State
President Jack Smith and Lewis
Hines, chairman of the Legislative
Committee of the American Fed
eration of Labor, yesterday criti
cized the Virginia labor situation.
“The State people tell us it is not
their intention to hurt organized
labor,” Mr. Smith said. “That, of
course, is rot. We do not expect a
group of politicians to tell us what
is good for us. This is about as rea
sonable as a sparrow telling a fish
how to swim.
Co-operation Promised.
"We will do our part in the Vir
ginia community. We will meet
management fairly and decently in
a friendly spirit in our program to
advance the cause of the working
people. We will co-operate with the
church and civic organizations to
ward the advancement of commu
nity life. Good unionism is good
citizenship.”
Mr. Hines, after extolling the
leadership in establishing free gov
ernment offered by Virginians of
the past—Washington, Jefferson and
Patrick Henry—asked:
“If these great apostles of free
dom were alive today, do you know
what would happen? Gov. Tuck
WUUiU iUUUUl uAlCIXl 1X1 tu txic I’m
tional Guard and send them march
ing out as strikebreakers!
“But we are going to fight, and
we are going to defeat sooner or
later every one of those fellows who
ire trying to shackle us.”
15,000 Disputes Settled.
In a plea for voluntary arbitra
tion as preferable to that of a com
pulsory nature, C. H. Williams, re
gional director of the United States
Conciliation Service, declared that
“there is no royal road to industrial
harmony, but the fact that 16,000
disputes were settled peacefully by
the USCS last year seems to point
the way.
“We must continue to settle dis
putes without work stoppages, be
cause work stoppages are not very
healthy at present on account of,
shall I say, punitive legislation?”
The “remarkable expansion” of
apprenticeship in the construction
industry, and suggestions as to how
it may be directed and controlled,
was the subject of a talk by William
P. Patterson, director of Apprentice
Training Service in the Labor De
partment.
Education Program Cited.
An outline of the greatly expand
ed program of labor relations edu
cation, from the public school level
through the universities, was pre
sented by John D. Connors, director
of the Workers’ Educational Bu
reau of the American Federation
of Labor.
Leifur Magnusson of the Indus
trial College of the Armed Forces,
cited the revolutionary change that
has come over the institution with
the technical strides made by Amer
ica in two world wars.
Glover Park Citizens Plan
Garden Fair in Fall
Plans for a garden fair next fall
were discussed by $he Glover Park
Citizens' Association last night.
Comdr. Leo T. Robbins, who man
aged the fair last year made a re
port and a Fair Committee was
appointed composed of Comdr. Rob
bins, Herman C. Ingram and John
W. Click. The committee in charge
of garden% exhibits is made up of
Curtis A. Rishel, E. J. Anstead and
Claude L. Manuel.
It was recommended that addi
tional stop signs be placed at the
intersection of Thirty-seventh and
Calvert streets N.W., to decrease the
hazard to pedestrians crossing Thir
ty-seventh street.
The association also adopted a
unanimous resolution recommend
ing that rent controls in the Dis
trict be continued for one year, and
that the association be represented
at the hearing before the District
Commissioners set for June 9.
7947 Hunt Fails

In'Old 97'Wreck
lr Mm Associated Press
DANVILLE, Va., May 13.—J. Har
ris Thompson of Lexington is still
looking for the brown derby he lost
on that September day in 1903
when the Southern Railway’s Wash
ington-Danvllle mail and express
train leaped to its doom—and fame
as the “Wreck of the Old 97.”
Mr. Thompson was here this week
attending the Grand Commandery,

"I often heard that somebody in

U. S.r Britain Oppose
Red Demand to Limit
Greek Border Watch
•y the Associated Press
LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., May 13.—
United States and Great Britain
today lined up against a Russian
demand that the United Nations
Security Council sharply curtail the
powers of its subcommission watch
ing over the troubled Greek frontiers.
Reopening the Greek case in the
U. N. as Congress neared final ap
proval of President Truman’s $400,
000,000 program of aid to Greece and
Turkey, Soviet Deputy Foreign Min
ister Andrei A. Gromyko demanded
that the Council limit the subsidiary
group to specially assigned cases and
not leafe it free to initiate investiga
tions.
The 11-nation subcommission Is
functioning in Salonika under orders
to keep a vigil pending action on a
June 1 report of the full commission
to the Council.
Headquarters Move Asked.
Mr. Gromyko also insisted that
the group move its headquarters to
Athens, further away from the
border, with the argument that its
“presence in Salonika may encourage
activities of certain irresponsible and
adventitious Greek circles."
The Council, convening last night
after a full day’s schedule of com
mittee meetings in the General As
sembly’s debate on Palestine, shelved
Mr. Gromyko’s resolution in favor
of a procedural debate over the
report.
However, American and British
spokesmen made it clear that these
two powers would be ready to block
Russia’s move at the next Council
session Friday.
Greek Army on Border
Reported Strengthened
ATHENS, May 13 OF).—Greek
Army units along the Yugoslavia
and Albania borders were reported
strengthened today to block the
flight of harassed guerrillas as other
government forces pressed a new
drive to mop up centers of leftist
resistance in a 1,500-square-mile
area of Northwest Thessaly and
Western Macedonia.
Press reports said five villages al
ready had been seized from the
guerrillas, that the drive was meet
ing comparatively little resistance
and that it was gaining momentum
everywhere.
An emergency meeting of the
cabinet was called in Athens, mean
while, to consider a prdposal intro
duced in Parliament last night to
outlaw the Communist Party. The
proposal, scheduled for debate in
Parliament Thursday, thus far bears
the signature of 30 members.
Yellow Diamond identified
In Murray's Gem Trial
■y th» Associated Press
YOKOHAMA, May 13.—A yellow
diamond—one of about 500 which
Col. Edward J. Murray is charged
with misappropriating—was identi
fied at his court-martial trial today
by two Japanese.
It was the first identification of
any of the.estimated $200,000 worth
of gems Murray is accused of taking
while Allied custodian of Bank of
Japan vaults.
The beribboned Palo Alto (Calif.)
Army officer displayed no emotion
as witnesses pointed out the yellow
diamond.
Mrs. Momijl Fujinami of Tokyo
identified the 4-carat emerald-cut
diamond as one she had bought 18
years ago in Canada and sold in
October, 1844, to Koeki Eidan, Japa
nese agency which purchased pre
cious jewels and metals for the war
effort.
Justice Douglas Visited
In Hospital by Truman
(y the Associated Press
President Truman drove to Doc
tors Hospital yesterday to visit
briefly with Supreme Court Justice
Dougals. j
The White House said the Presi
dent took a bouquet of flowers and
chatted for a while with Justice
Douglas, who has been a patient at

Clark, Patterson Ask
Easing of Immigration
For Displaced Persons
Easing of immigration barriers
to permit a reasonable number of
displaced persons of all national
ities to enter the United States from
Europe was urged last night bf*At
torney General Clark and Secretary
of War Patterson.
They spoke at the "freedom and
democracy” dinner of B’nai B’ritb,
attended by more than 1,000 persons
in the Hotel Statler.
Mr. Patterson, Secretary of State
Marshall and Associate Justice
Robert H. Jackson of the Supreme
Court were presented with gold
medals, the group's "Humanitarian
ism and Justice Awards.”
All "Live in Harmony,”
"Here all classes live together in
harmony, under the l^ws of God
and the government of thefr fellow
men,” Mr. Clark said. “In this con
nection I voice the hope that Presi
dent Truman’s plea for us to accept
a fair share of those homeless vic
tims of world cataclysm be promptly
heeded.”
Lashing out , at subversive ele
ments, Mr. Clark said “it is no secret
that for 20 years or more we have
been the target of an adroit, a
subtle, but a wholly vicious cam
paign designed to lull us into a false
sense of security—to blind us to the
danger from totalitarian forces bent
upon conquest of the world and sub
jugation of all its peoples."
“How many subversives can the
United States afford to harbor?”
he queried. “Our prompt answer
is: Not a single one. It is our
purpose to make that a living reality.
"There will be no white-wash.
There will be no witch hunt. There
(rill be an America safe from the
fifth column and equally safe from
the Gestapo,” he said, specifically
naming the Communist Party, the
ECu Klux Klan and the Columbians.
Pays Tribute to Jews.
Mr. Clark paid tribute to the Jew
ish people, their role in American
history and their contributions to
the building of this Nation. His
speech was broadcast nationally over
Station WMAL and the ABC net
work.
On receiving his medal, Mr. Pat
terson said he liked to think of the
honor as a ‘tribute from you to the
men and women of the United States
Army.”
He told of how the Army found
8,000,000 displaced persons, “sent
back many of them,” and is now
caring for 600,000. “This is only a
stop-gap and a program of improv
isation,” he emphasized. “The real
solution is in resettlement • * • in
— _i« > »•
u&iu *nuMi
In urging that the United States
“take its share” of the displaced
persons, he stressed that “it is a
blunder, a mistake and a fallacy”
to believe they would be a burden.
Truman Sends Greetings.
Dean Earl G. Harrison of the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania law school,
former United States commissioner
of naturalization and current chair
man of the National Committee for
Displaced persons, also urged easing
of immigration.
President Truman conveyed his
greetings to B’nai B’rith and,41
tribute to Henry Monsky, its pres
ident, who died last Friday in New
York;
All the speakers, including Syd
ney G. K us worm, chairman of the
event and treasurer of B’nai B’rith,
paid tribute to Mr. Monsky.
Besides Justice Jackson members
of the Supreme Court present were
Chief Justice Vinson and Associate
Justice Harold H. Burton.
In addition to Mr. Clark, Mr.
Marshall and Mr. Patterson, the
cabinet also was represented by
Secretary of the Treasury Snyder.
Others attending were Paul V. Mc
Nutt, Ambassador to the Philippines;
Edward H. Foley, jr„ Assistant Sec
retary of the Treasury; Maj. Gen.

Reds See Effort to Extend
Truman Doctrine to World
By th» Associated Press
MOSCOW, May 13.—A Tass dis
patch from Washington said today
that influential circles in the Amer
ican capital were “organizing a
campaign” to extend the “Truman
doctrine” to Western Europe and
the Far East.
The dispatch said that after
Undersecretary of State Acheson’s
speech at Cleveland, Miss., last
week a number of commentators
expressed the opinion that the
United States Government was
seeking to change its current slogan
of struggle against communism to
economic reconstruction of Western
Europe and the Far East.
Another Tass dispatch reported
Mr. Acheson’s resignation and noted
that his successor, Robert A. Lovett,
was “in close relations with Secre
tary of Commerce W. Averell Harri
man,” former American Ambassa
dor to Russia.
In another phase of the Russian
press discussion of the United
States today, Pravda accused Amer
ica of seeking to interfere in the
affairs of France, Italy and Greece
and said such > actions would not
onljf harm the .internal affairs of
those countries but would threaten
