Last Wednes day, two men seized $7,500 from twi employes of the Haynes Lithograpl Co. of Silver Spring as they were re turning from a bank to the plan offices.

Speculation 8 (Continued From First Page.) when the showdown came two 1 Republicans — Gurney of South s Dakota and Reed of Kansas—sup - ported a motion to go to the Senate ■ with a resolution amending the law, as Mr. Anderson recommended. This ! made the vote 11 to 8. Senator Knowland then moved [ that Mr. Anderson give the names ! to the committee in executive ses 5 sion. This time party lines held, ■ and the motion carried, 10 to 9. Mr. Anderson refused, however, to comply with this request, reiterating that if he had to disclose the names at all he would make them public. Senator Ferguson, Republican, of Michigan, then moved that the Sec ; retary be requested to furnish the ; names immediately in open session. , On this motion, however, Senators Gurney and Saltonstall, Republican, of Massachusetts, voted with the nine Democrats, and it failed, 11 to 8. Pushed Through Senate. This ended the battle in commit tee, and a few hours later both parties joined in pushing the pro posed change in law through the Senate. While the debate was going on, President Truman wa^ telling his press conference that he thinks the lish should be made public, but that he agrees with Mr. Anderson that it will require a change in the law. Here is the President’s statement: “With reference to the question regarding the publication of the list of speculators in the commodity markets, I think that such list should be made public. “However, Congress has provided by law that information furnished to the agencies of the Government on a confidential basis shall not be divulged. Since the Congress itself has so provided, it is necessary that the Congress take some action re moving this restriction. The Secre tary of Agriculture could then make the list public. Could Rush Resolution. “A resolution giving such au thority to the Secretary of Agri culture has already been introduced and could quickly be adopted. “I would approve such a resolu tion immediately. "At the hearing this morning be fore the Senate Appropriations Com mittee, the Secretary further stated that he would furnish the list to the committee, if it so directed, provided the meeting was held in public and the list was made available to the public. The committee refused to take this course of action. Instead, the committee adopted a resolution that the list should be furnished to it in secret at a closed session. "The Secretary properly rejected this proposal. “I fully support the position of the Secretary of Agriculture. “I have already made my position clear with reference to speculation on the commodity exchanges. And I hope that the Congress will act promptly so that the facts in this situation can be known to all.” Senator Ferguson read the exist ing law to the Senate to support his contention that it gives Mr. Ander son ample authority to reveal the names of speculators without any further action by Congress. The Michigan Senator said the law per mits Mr. Anderson to publish the names whenever he feels that specu lation is tending to disrupt the commodity markets, or Is harmful to the public interest. Two Senators Explain Stand. Senator Ferguson said Mr. Ander son had been quoted as saying on October 9 that he knew there was “gambling” on the commodity ex changes. The Senator also declared Attorney General Clark has had ac cess to the list of names in the files of the Secretary of Agriculture. He asked what these officials have done under their discretionary powers. Senators Gurney and Saltonstall took the floor in the Senate to ex plain why they had not voted in the Appropriations Committee to require Mr. Anderson to reveal the names without a change in the law. Senator Gurney said he was con vinced the law as it stands con templates that the transactions of “any citizen shall be kept inviolate.” He said he thought it was not right for a committee, being only a part of the Congress, to change the law. Senator Saltonstall said that, once the committee had voted to seek a change in the law, he deemed it wiser to adhere to that course, eevn though he had not agreed with that course in the first in stance. In that way, he said, all legal doubts of the Secretary’s right to make the names public could be removed. Taxes (Continued From First Page.) bill I introduced yesterday will amount to an average wage increase of about four cents an hour and its passage will also make available large sums of venture capital for new businesses. "Best of all, its effects will be de flationary because it will lower one of the big costs of production.’’ The bill would give tax cuts to all the 54,500,000 taxpayers, ranging from 10 per cent in the highest in come brackets to 100 per cent in the lowest income group. It would remove 7,400,000 low in come and elderly persons from the tax rolls completely, apply generally the community property principle under which husbands and wives split income for tax purposes, and give cut* of 80 to 10 per cent aerosi the board. Even before Mr. Truman held his news conference, predictions of a veto were heard on Capitol Hill. Representative Crawford, Repub lican, of Michigan said “It would be my guess it never will get past the White House.” National de fense. other necessary costs of Gov ernment and “a $3,000,000,000 mini mum yearly payment on the Na tion’s debt” should be guaranteed before turning to tax cuts, he added. Representative Gore, Democrat, of Tennessee contended “under the cir cumstances we face I don’t see how any President could sign such a bill from the standpoint of Justice and sound fiscal policy.” Palestine (Continued From First Page.) Nations decided November 29 to partition the area rose to 279. The toll in all the Middle East reached 400. Jew* Storm Trenches. Hagana fighters stormed shallow trenches dug by Arabs outside Holon village, near Tel Aviv, causing the death of one Arab. Three Arabs and two Hagana members were wounded. Hagana spokesmen said the trenches had been dug under cover of Arab sniping from tha village »f Tel Errish. . Dr. Chaim Kugel, president of the Holon City Council, said he had re quested that a detachment of Brit ish troops be sent to “occupy” Holon. Meanwhile, a band of about 100 persons whom officers believed to have been Arabs, exploded a bomb on the right of way and held up a freight train on the Haifa-Lydda line. The attackers loaded 35 tons of sugar onto waiting trucks and drove off. There were no casualties in the at tack and the train was not damaged. Syrian Officers Resign To Fight in Palestine DAMASCUS, Syria, Dec. 19 (IP).— The Syrian Defense Ministry an nounced today that it had accepted the resignations of' a number of army officers who wished to volun teer for service in Palestine to fight against the partition of the Holy Land.

House Resolutions Ask 210,000 Jews' Transport By th« Associated Frost Two House members Introduced identical resolutions yesterday call-1 ing for transport to Palestine by October 1 of the 210,000 Jews In American displaced persons camps in Europe. The resolutions, by Representative Scott, Republican of Pennsylvania, and Representative Somers, Demo crat 8t New York, call on President Truman to “direct the proper au thorities in the American zones of occupation to undertake immediate ly the program of repatriation of such Hebrew displaced persons.” They also would “authorize the employment of such facilities of the United States—including vessels and , land transport facilities—as may be necessary to accomplish such repat riation as expeditiously as possible.” Beer Grows Big Cucumber After winning a prize at the Sut ton, England Granfers Club for growing a cucumber two feet long, Grandfather W.
