MOSCOW, Oct. 6.—The Cen

Soviet Union and its counter
parts in eight other European
nations served notice today that
they do not intend to give an

This program of no concessions
was promulgated in a manifesto
setting up a new Communist or

observers memories of the old
Comintern—the Communist Inter

In effect, the statement served no

Τ wo Big Unions May Leave AFL
As Result of Bitter Disputes
Alliance Between Lewis and Hutcheson
On NLRB and Jurisdiction Rows Reported
By James Y. Newton
Star Staff Correspondent
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 6.—The
American Federation of Labor
opened its annual convention
here today amid predictions of
officials that the meeting will
be as rough as that at Atlantic
City in 1935. when John L. Lewis
created the CIO and marked his
exit from the AFL by punching
a fellow vice president on the
nose.
By a strange coincidence, Mr.
Lewis and the man he punched 12
years ago are expected to supply
the drama in the convention this
time. Mr. Lewis has formed an
alliance now with his former
antagonist, William L. Hutcheson,
president of the carpenter's union,
and both have quarrels of almost
equal importance with the rest of
AFL.
All of this could lead to the with
drawal of Mr. Lewis' 600,000 mine
workers and Mr. Hutcheson's
equally large union from the AFL
and such a possibility is predicted
here. The conservatives among
federation officials do not expect it,
but they admit it could easily occur
and that the situation is explosive.
District 50 Is Part of Dispute.
Part of the controversy revolving
around Mr. Lewis is well known, in
volving his blocking of access to the
National Labor Relations Board of
all AFL unions by his refusal to.
sign a Taft-Hartley Labor Act non
Communist affidavit.
But there is more to the Lewis
part of the story than that. The
rest of it involves jurisdictional dis
putes between the UMW District
50, a catch-all union of many crafts,
and numerous other AFL unions: a
recurrence of the old basic differ
ences over political activity, the in
dustrial union versus the craft union
setup, and the fact that a sizable

Civil Service Officiais
To Explain Loyalty File
To House Group Today
Hoffman Charges 'Smear'
On Members of Congress;
Holds Reds Responsible
By Joseph Young
Chairman ' Hoffman of the
House Executive Expenditures
Committee today charged the
Civil Service Commission with
keeping a "smear file" on some
members of Congress.
Mr Hoffman made the charge
as the committee summoned the
three civil service commissioners
to appear before it this afternoon
to answer reports that the com
mission is keeping some congres
sional names in a special loyalty
investigation "lead" file.
"It is nothing more than a smear
file from biased and prejudiced
sources," Mr. Hoffman declared.
"In my judgment some Reds down
there are trying to destroy the con
fidence of the people in Congress."
Files in .Separate Dossier.
It was revealed yesterday that
the committee had issued subpoenas
for the three commissioners in con
n^rtinn with frh® lrtvaltv flip rharffM
Sumoned were Harry B. Mitchell,
commission president, and his as
sociates, Frances Perkins and Ar
thur S. Flemming. Also subpoenaed
were the commission's files.
Commission officials skid today
they did not know whether the
"lead" file contained the names and
records of any members of Congress.
They said the" file in question is
a dossier kept by the commission s
investigators apart from their reg
ular records in compiling loyalty
and other investigations on Federal
job applicants and Government em
ployes. This information, it was
said, is usually about persons not
now employed in the Government,
which was picked up incidentally in
the investigators' inquiry into other
matters.
"Smear File" Charge Denied.
Commission officials denied the
charge that it was a "smear file."
"It is something like a newspaper
library, where clippings, good and
bad, are kept," one official said. "It
is kept only lor our investigators'
information and use in future in
vestigations.
The information is usually used
should the person involved apply
for a Government job, or in con
nection with suspected employes
already on the Government payroll,
it was said. '
Commission officials said the file's
existence was no secret, and that
its contents had been discussed be
fore the House Appropriations Com
mittee. However, at that time the
question of whether any members
of Congress were involved was not
brought up.

Charges Against Lee
Stand Up, Ruark Says
Of Wyche's Report
Articles Made Eisenhower
Correct Several Abuses
In Italy, Writer Asserts
By the Associated Press
Robert C. Ruark, columnist,
declared today that despite an
"attempted whitewash" by the
inspector general, all his charges
about extravagant living of offi
cers and shabby treatment of
enlisted men in the Italian the
ater "have stood up."
The Scripps-Howard writer said
Maj. Gen. Ira T. Wyche, who in
vestigated for the Army chief of
staff after a series of articles by
Mr. Ruark. "tripped and fell flat
ever enough unburied evidence to
force Gen. Eisenhower to take ac
tion on several marked abuses."
Gen. Wyche reported to Gen.
Eisenhower that he found only
minor discrepancies and irregulari
ties" in the Italian theater under
Lt. Gen. John C. H. Lee and that
the Ruark stories gave a "wholly
erroneous picture" of overall condi
tions. (
Oen. Eisenhower made the report
public Friday, along with a memo
randum of his own acknowledging
"errors" in the command and say
ing he was taking action to correct
them.
Gen. Elsenhower said the errors
were "the exception rather than the
rule and in no case could be traced
to wrong intent on the part of the
thèater coirtmander."
Mr. Ruark devoted his column for
today, which was made available by
the Scripps-Howard newspapers, to
his comment.
"Lefthandedly," he said, "in
Wyche's pitiful effort to sidestep the
truth, all the charges have stood
up."
He said Gen. Eisenhower's state
ment "knocks the Wyche report
cranksided" and that the chief of
staff had agreed with Mr. Ruark on
five points:
1. "I said that, things were pretty
awful in the disciplinary training
camp at Pisa. So does Gen. Eisen
hower."
Gen. Eisenhower's statement said
minor offenders had been incar
cerated where contact with criminal
offenders was possible, a "serious
mistake,'" and that daily routine of
prisoners was of a very severe order,
"far moie than justified."
Pressure to Join Organization.
2. "I said enlisted men had been
blackjacked into joining·a purely
political organization. So does Gen.
Eisenhower. '
Gen. Elsenhow's statement spoke
of "undue pressure exercised by
commanders to induce subordinates
frniawnal λ*·rrenivatÎAnc " I
The Wyche report had referred to
"the Fellowship of U. S.-British
Comrades," created to foster com
radeship between members of the
ι wo armed forces.
3. "I said that the Army had
broken many of its postwar prom
ises to the enlisted men. So does
Gen. Eisenhower."
Gen. Wyche reported the only in
stances of broken promises to en
listed men were those of soldiers
who had enlisted for areas other
than th'e Mediterranean but had
been sent to that theater because of
the Army's shortage of recruits.
Gen. Eisenhower said this was a
fault of the Army instead of Gen.
Lee's command and that he would
lake steps to "follow up on It."
4. "I charged unfairness and in
stability in bringing service depend
ents to Italy. Gen. Eisenhower
agrees."
Gen. Eisenhower said the prin
cipal cause of this situation was
failure of the War Department to
explain to personnel the reasons
for changes in orders and policies
necessitated by conditions in Italy.

UPPER MARLBORO, Md.. Oct. 6.
—The new Prince Georges County
grand jury today was directed to
make a special study of enforce
ment of gambling laws in the
county.
Judge John B. Gray, jr.. opening
the October term of Circuit Court,
warned that it had been revealed
in "another court of this circuit"
that law enforcement officers of
another county "deliberately closed
their eyes to gambling laws 'ap
plicable to that county and to the
State."
"Consequently," he added, "there
were no prosecutions, although
there were hundreds of violations."

St. Marys County.)
In instructing the newly impaneled
grand jury. Juage Gray emphasized
that the jury was not to devote it
self entirely to inquiring into

study the extent lawbreakers in gen

For the first time, women were
sworn in for jury service in the

(Texts ol Truman and Luckman
talks on Pape A-5.)
By the Associated Press
An unprecedented "self-de
nial" offensive against hunger
in Western Europe was touched
off today by President Truman's
call for food sacrifices as an
American "contribution to
peace."
Mr. Truman asked all citizens
to go without meat on Tuesdays,
without eggs and poultry on Thurs
days, and to save a slice of bread
a day.
He "demanded" of the grain ex
changes the raising of margins on
grain purchases to 33 V3 per cent to
thwart what he called the infla
tionary operations of "gamblers in
grain."

warned in a Nation-wide broadcast
last night, the Government may
step in and "limit the amount of
trading" in wheat and other grains.
Distilleries May Suspend.
A distiller described as a "bolt
from the blue" another White
White House request—that the
liquor industry shut down for 60
days "at the earliest possible mo
ment." Two whiskey makers pre
dicted the answer would be yes.
Chief aim of the whole program
is to save grain, the mainstay of
Europe's diet, in the face of esti

Asked if any one had noticed
this before the Citizens' Pood
Committee selected Thursday
as the poultryless day, Charles
Ross, secretary to President
Truman, said he didn't hear
any one mention it. As to
whether the rule would be
relaxed for the holidays, he
said:.
"We'll cross that bridge when
we come to it,"

icans to use less meat and poultry
products is to save on grain fed to
livestock.
Going direct to the people by
radio and television. Mr. Truman
joined Charles Luckman, chairman
of his Citizens' Food Committee in
a grave and sometimes sharply
voiced plea for conservation lest
prosperity at home and peace in
the world be "needlessly lost."
And—as Mr. Luckman today be
gan mobilizing an organization, in
side and outside the Government, to
wage a campaign of near-wartime
dimensions—at least one influential
Republican legislator gave ungrudg
ing endorsement.
Praised by Agriculture Chairman.
"It's a good program," said Chair
man Hope of the House Agriculture
Committee. "It is something tangi
ble that the people can understand.
It was well presented and should
have the support of every Amer
ican."
And Chairman Bridges, just be
fore the broadcast, called his Sen
ate Appropriations Committee to
meet November 18 - on the Presi
dent's $580,000,000 proposal for
emergency aid to Western Europe.
This is the money which Mr. Tru

Wheat dropped as much as 10

Traders said wheat was aided by

1-Cent Milk Price Rise
Threatens D. C. Area
In Plea by Producers

A cent-a-quart increase in the
price of milk tJBoughout the ·
Washington Me®bolitan Area
within the next^B^reeks was
threatened tod^H^B; Mary
land and VirginU^^flk Pro
ducers' Association petitioned
the Virginia Milk Commission
for a raise in the price paid the
farmer.
This increase, if it is granted,
"undoubtedly" will result in a retail
price increase, according to spokes
man for the Chestnut Farms-Chevy
Chase Dairy.
Retail milk prices generally now
are 17 cents a quart in stores and
19's cents delivered by the dailies.
Cream and milk used m ice cream
would not be affected by the price
rise.
A hearing on the producers' re
quest will be held in Alexandria on
October 17.
The group, in making public its
request for a higher price for fluid
milk, said that producers are "un
able to continue to absorb rcund
after round of ever-increasing ieed
and labor costs" which have been
"greatly in excess" of the cent
raise asked.
Since there is no Maryland milk
commission it is not necessary to
take formal steps to increase the
price paid to farmers of milk pro
duced in that State. However,
prices for the two adjoining States
generally move up or down together.
Maryland and Virginia together
furnished about 90 per cent of the
metropolitan Washington milk sup
ply.
The Board of Directors of the
Producers' Association said that they
are "still hope that the present
efforts on the part of the admini
startion to halt the vicious spiral
of increasing grain prices (corn,
oats, barley and wïïeat) may become

Short one justice, the Supreme

with a blast from Justice Jack
son against a 5-2 decision an

Justice Douglas was absent. He
underwent a tonsillectomy during

from a throat infection. Aides said
he probably would rejoin the court
next Monday.
Today's was the first session of
a new term of the court during
which matters of far-reaching im

whether the Taft-Hartley Act is
constitutional and whether clauses
in real estate deeds which bar prop
erty owners from selling to Ne

Justice Jackson's blast was a dis

the court -upheld «Securities and

order prevented the management of

Justice Jackson asserted that
there was "admittedly no law for

What the Russians
Are Saying of Us:
The Moscow radio, broadcasting in
German to Europe last week, said:
"Two and a half years have
passed since the collapse of thfe
Nazi regime.-In the Soviet oc
cupation zone during this time
quite important successes nave
been achièved—by the active
parts played by the German peo
ple In democratizing the coun
try.
"But it would be an unpardon
able mistake to assume that
everything necessary has been
done In the fight against the
German carriers of Naziism who
are still at large. Recent events
make it clear that Naziism has
by no means been extirpated
completely from Germany.
"It is characteristic that the
majority of Fascist outrages oc
cur in the Western zone and
in particular in the United sec
tor of Berlin.
"In the United States zone
many war criminals and big
Nazis are occupying resoonsible
posts. It is therefore not sur
prising that their followers
should try to express openly
their Nazi ideology."
