when the showdown came two
1 Republicans — Gurney of South

- ported a motion to go to the Senate

as Mr. Anderson recommended. This

Senator Knowland then moved
[ that Mr. Anderson give the names

■ 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

parties joined in pushing the pro
posed change in law through the
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

"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

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

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.”
