Plan for New Parley
On Fair Wage Backed By Truman Advisers ly th* Auo<iat»d Prcu Proposals that President Truman eall a new labor-management con ference, despite the almost total 'allure of his 1945 effort, gained strength today rrom his Council ol Economic Advisers. Collective bargaining might be eome a greater force for "labor peace and economic stability,” the council said in its annual report, if thera ';ere some generally approved "standard of a fair wage—related to a given price structure.” The advisers dwelt at length on the possibility that a second meeting of union and industry leaders might be a starting point for agreement on such standards as a guide in labor negotiations. "These standards would not be binding; they would be primarily Informational in character,” the economists told Mr. Truman. “But from them might emerge, after a testing period of time and experience, a better reasoned and, therefore, more workable formula tion of wage policies to be applied through collective bargaining.” The report, a lorerunner of Mr. Truman’s economic message to Con gress due next week, was prepared by the three-member advisory council headed by Dr. Edwin G. Nourse. Arouses Speculation. Since the council also supplies Mr. Truman with the economic analysis on which he bases his own message, the report issued last night aroused speculation whether the President is weighing invitations to a new conference. The council did not make a direct recommendation. It noted that the first conference, held only three months after the war, brought "few results.” But the advisers suggested that a new conference might produce some agreement if it were carefully planned. Public and farm representatives might also attend, it was suggested. The council declared its ‘confi dent” belief that a high-production, high-employment economy can be maintained in this country, free from major booms and depressions. This can be done without resort to controls which would "weaken pri vate enterprise or destroy basic freedoms of choice,” the report con tinued. Remain Perennial Threat. But it emphasized that major labor disputes in vital industries "remain a perennial threat” to •table prosperity. Whether these are to be settled by negotiation or by Government in tervention, the advisers said, there is need for a pattern of standards which would be "fair to both parties, acceptable to the public and con aistent with the needs of the whole •conomy.” “These standards include a wage •tructure in relation to prices that will maintain the producing power of industry and the buying power of labor in sound proportion,” it spec!-; fled. "If such standards can be de veloped and win adherents, the prcspects for voluntary settlements .will become so bright that the need for compulsion would be rare in-; deed.” Recommendations Listed. As in its two previous reports, the council made few definite policy recommendations. These were the major ones: Extension of Government supports j for farm prices to prevent any agri cultural slump which might again, as in 1930, lead to a general business collapse. “The fact that this sup port-machinery has not yet been perfected is not a sufficient reason for abandoning it,” the report said. A housing program built on the •deliberate promotion of easy credit ” while this is inflationary, the council said, it is justified by the seriousness of the housing shortage. Continued support of Government bond prices by Federal Reserve buy ing. This too feeds inflation, the council said, but it would be "reck less” to drop the program and thus possibly “create uneasiness about the National credit” while a huge public debt exists. The people must expect high Fed eral budgets "for many years to come,” since they demand military preparedness, foreign aid and public works, the report said, and added that the Government must use this vast spending power with care, In the interest of stability.

SUMNER WELLES WAS FOUND HERE—Brooke Kerby and his son Henry show a reporter where they found Sumner Welles unconscious yesterday morning near Oxon Hill, Md. The X marks where Mr. Welles was discovered about 40 feet from Liv ingston road (marked by arrow at left). The arrow at right designates the creek into which Mr. Welles is believed to have fallen. Looking on is Edgar Young, tenant farmer on Mr. Kerby’s farm, where Mr. Welles was found. In the background is the Young home, to which Mr. Welles was carried. * / —. . . Henry Kerby, 10-year-old fifth-grader at St. Mary’s School, who first spotted Mr. Welles. Welles (Continued From First Page.> reported Mr. Welles’ forehead was scratched and his knuckles were bloody. Dr. Huffman said he could have received these injuries in a fall. Asks What Happened. Dr. Huffman said Mr. Welles asked him; “What happened to me?” Mrs. Welles and employes on the Welles estate have told police they did not see Mr. Welles after mid night. He was found at 7:45 a.m. Mrs. Welles told Pvt. Riddlebarger her husband often took night walks because he suffered from insomnia, but she said she had no idea why he left the estate, which stretches for miles along Oxon Hill road. Livingston road, near which Mr. I Welles was found, runs parallel to I Oxon Hill road. The two roads are connected by Kerby road, which winds for nearly a mile through the back country. Just before Kerby jroad joins Livingston road, a small ! bridge crosses narrow Carry Creek, into which Mr. Welles is believed i to have fallen. Kerby Describes Discovery. Brooke Kerby of 6757 Livingston road, told this story of finding the unconscious diplomat: "We had been to the 7 o’clock mass at St. Ipiatius Church and were almost home when my son Henry said, ‘Daddy, there’s a man lying in our field.’ "My wife said, ‘No, it s just a bar rel,’ but I saw a bald head shining in the sun and X knew it was a man. “He was huddled up stiff as a board. He was lying on his right shoulder with his hands clenched on his chest and his legs were drawn up. "He had on a heavy fur-lined jacket and his black tie was pulled out and lying over his shoulder. His coat collar was turned up. "I could hear him' snoring. I kept shaking him and finally his eyes rolled around and his mouth opened but he couldn't talk. He just kept looking at me. "His clothes were wet and dirty all over, as if he had rolled in the branch.” Summons More Help. Mr. Kerby said he ran to the four-room frame house of his col ored tenant' farmer, Edgar Young. Mr. Welles, he said, was so stiff they were afraid to lift him for fear of breaking bones, so they cov ered him up and Mr. Kerby got two other neighbors, C. D. Thorne and Merrill Thorne, to help carry Mr. Welles. The four men carried the ex- j diplomat into the Young cottage j and laid him on the floor while Mr. Kerby went off to call police and the District Heights Rescue Squad. Although Mr. Kerby had done ex cavation work for Mr. Welles when; the Welles estate was being built in 1928, he said the unconscious man was so swollen with cold that he wasn’t recognizable. Jewell J Du Bose of the rescue squad, who worked over Mr. Welles in the ambulance and helped un dress him at the hospital, said Mr. Welles’ socks were frozen to his i legs and his shoes were frozen to | his socks. Identification Difficult. He said Mr. Welles wasn’t identi fied until his watch was removed and hospital authorities saw an en graving on the inside of the watch with his name on it. His name also was on a bottle of sleeping pills found in his pocket. In addition to the watch, Mr. Welles carried a valuable cigarette case. No wallet was found on him. Pvt. Riddlebarger said he has not yet been able to determine if Mr. Welles’ wallet was found at his home. Mr. Welles was last seen by his butler about 10:30 pan. Saturday In sharp contrast with the little cottage to which Mr. Welles was carried from the field is the massive Welle* home, approximately 2 miles away in the heart of his wooded estate on Oxon Hill road. , while he was working on some papers in his downstairs study. Wife Heard Him at 10:30. P\n. Riddlebargcr said Mrs. Welles told him she heard her husband come upstairs about 10:30 p.m. and put the Welles’ dog in the bathroom. She said she didn't know her hus band had gone out. About 8:30 a.m. yesterday, she told the police man, she asked the butler if Mr. Welles had rung for breakfast. When told that he had not, she went to his room and found the bed had not been slept in. About that time the hospital called to say Mr. Welles had been brought in and Mrs. Welles imme- J diately went to the hospital, where she remained at her husband's bed side through the day. Members of Mr. Welles house hold said he had been “very de pressed" and not eating or sleeping well since he returned from funeral services for Laurence Duggan. Mr. Duggan, former State Depart ment political adviser and close friend of Mr. Welles, plunged to his death from his sixteenth floor office in New York last Monday. A few hours later, the House Committee on Un-American Activi ties published secret testimony! given by Isaac Don Levine, editor of Plain Talk, an anti-Communist magazine. The witness said he had heard ex - Communist Whittaker Chambers mention Mr. Duggan as one of those who passed along State Department secrets. Came to Duggan s Defense Mr. Welles immediately came to; his friend's defense, called him a loyal public servant and asked the New York Police Department to j investigate the death on the possi- j bility of foul play. The Justice De partment later cleared Mr. Duggan j of any suspicion and the committee dropped the case. Earlier, Mr. Welles went before the committee as a witness to testi fy to the importance of the stolen State Department reports found in a pumpkin on Mr. Chambers' Maryland fawn. Mr. Welles, testi fying at an open session, examined several of the documents and ad vised against their being made public. Later, most of the documents were released but some have been kept secret on State Department advice. Realized Early Ambition. Mr. Welles, who for years held a place in popular conception as the ! archtype of the career diplomat, has been active in recent years as a free lance critic of diplomacy. He has not held an official post in more than five years. He resigned as Undersecretary of State in September, 1943, after a breach with Secretary of State Hull. A career in the diplomatic service had been his ambition in college days, and he began it in 1915, shortly after graduating from Harvard Uni versity. At 29, he was chief of the Division of Latin American Affairs. In the spring of 1937, at 44, he be came the No. 2 man of the depart ment. In the critical months before the outbreak of World War II, State Department observers began to notice signs of cracking in the re lations between Mr. Welles and Mr. Hull. It was not until 1943, however, that the strain became generally apparent, and Mr. Welles finally resigned after a conference with President Roosevelt. In his memoirs, Mr. Hull stated bluntly the rift was caused by what he said was Mr. Welles' propensity for taking into his own hands de cisions which Mr. Hull .had not proposed to leave to his subordinate when he gave him unusual leeway. Mr. Welles was credited widely with coining the phrase, “Good Neighbor Policy" to describe Mr. Roosevelt’s program of inter-Ameri can co-operation. The almost invariably calm diplomat usually has demonstrated maximum enthusiasm when ex pounding his conviction of the es sential need for hemispheric soli darity. In 1940 Mr. Roosevelt sent him to Europe on a fact-finding mission to evaluate the chances of preserving peace. In his book, “The Time for Decision,'* published in 1944, Mr. Welles said the trip failed of ac complishment because it was appar ent Hitler and Mussolini would be stayed only by the realization that the United States was arraying force against them. Mr. Welles was born October 14. 1892 in New York. He attended Groton before entering Harvard. In 1915 he married Miss Esther Slater. They had two sons. The Welles were divorced and he married Mrs. Mathilde Townsend Gerry In 1925. I Mrs. William Paley Heads Ten Best-Dressed Women By th.

Sh$ Is Mrs. William Paley. the former Barbara Cushing Mortimer, wife of the head of the Columbia Broadcasting System. A modest young woman. Mrs. Paley detests the ; term “clothes horse” and buys only one Or tow new outfits each season. The annual selection of best dressed w'omen by the institute, is based on a poll of 150 fashion editors and designers around the country. Others chosen include: Mrs. Millicent Rogers, the Duchess of Windsor, Mrs. Andre Embiricos i the former Beatrice Ammidon), Mrs. Alfred G Wynne Vanderbilt, Mrs. William Randolph Hearst, jr. (the former Austine Cassini of Washington and New York), Mrs. Harrison Williams, the Duchess of Kent, Mme. Louis Arpels of Holly wood and Mrs. Howard Hawks of Hollywood. Five other women, although re ceiving sufficient votes to rate the top 10, were placed in a special cate gory because they are fashion de signers themselves, or closely con nected with the fashion industry. They are: Mrs. Adam Gimbel (Sophie, the dress designer), Mrs. George Schlee (Valentina, the dress designer), Gene Tierney (wife of Designer Oleg Cas sini), Janet Gaynor Adrian (wife of Adrian, Hollywood designer and Mrs. John C.

The award, presented to J. Edward Shugrue, national director of the foundation by Walter White, execu tive secretary of the NAACP, cited the foundation “for its contribution to the raising of the level of active citizenship by bringing together all Americans, regardless of race, creed or color, in rededication to our ideals of freedom and for enforcing a na tional policy of nonsegregation at all exhibits” of the Freedom Train. Spy Inquiry • Continued From First Page.) by the FBI about 10 days previously and gave ‘‘valuable leads” on the identity of the pair he said ap proached him before the war, Mr. Clark said. Two Senators issued varying statements yesterday about the committee, although both agreed legislative investigation work is nec essary. Senator Capper, Kansas Repub lican, who is retiring from Congress, predicted that the House commit tee will be continued because it "is doing a hangup job.” Senator McClellan, Democrat, of Arkansas, suggested a single Sen ate-House committee for all major investigations. He also recommend ed new rules of procedure and bet ter co-operation with executive agencies. “The tragedy of the investigators into Communist activities in the Government,” he said, "is that there hasn’t been any co-operation be tween the Government agencies and Congress, or very little.” The House committee expects to issue a report Wednesday or Thurs day on the current espionage in vestigation. This will cite the need for legislation to tighten the espion age laws. It will recommend that the com mittee not only be continued during the Eighty-first Congress, but center its work on determining whether spy rings operated during the war or still exist. Mr. Mundt said. In a /separate statement Mr. Mundt and Representative Nixon 'will suggest improvements in com mittee hearing methods. A booklet on “100 Things You Should Know About Communism in Government” will be issued this week, the committee has announced. The committees annual report probably will be ready by Jan uary II.

Tel Aviv Area Bombed. Last night, Arab planes dropped bombs east of Tel Aviv as Israel went into its second night of total blackout. No damage was reported. Cairo dispatches said the seven nation Arab League was pressing the governments of other Arab na tions to take up arms in support of the Egyptian Army. The League's secretary general, Abdel Rahman Azzam Pasha, told newsmen Syria and Saudi Arabia replied they are ready to fight. Mr. Azzam Pasha recalled that League members agreed last month to send all Arab armies against the Jews in the Holy Land, if the Israelis violated the truce. The Egyptians have claimed violations occurred. The Jews have been minimizing the reports of United Nations ob servers and Egyptians, who said fighting is widespread and may mark the start of a second Israeli Negeb offensive. The first occurred in October. A military spokesman conceded that the fighting has spread far ther south than the previous bat tleground near Nirim, east of the Egyptian frontier post of Rafa. Nirim is about 5 miles from the Egyptian border. Both Sides tailed Aggressive. The spokesman said there also Isj fighting in the area east and south east of Gaza on the southern coast al plain. The spokesman declined to call it a Jewish offensive, he said both sides were aggressive. The Israeli air force was report ed to have raided front-line areas. United Nations’ observers at Haifa said bombs as big as 500 pounders appear to have been used in the Gaza and Rafa areas early' yester day. It was virtually impossible to get a factual picture of the spread ing battles which would balance with the reports of Egyptians or United Nations’ observers. There was no information as to what King Abdullah of Trans-Jor dan intended to do about seeking control of Arab Palestine. Abdullah Gets Backing. Residents of 64 Central Palestine communities demanded yesterday at a conference in Ramallah that Ab dullah be enthroned as ruler of a united Arab Palestine and Trans jordan. They called the monarch 'our savior.” Some 4,000 persons, including ! municipal officials, judges, lawyers ahd labor leaders attended the par ley.

Negeb, but unofficial report* Royall Charges Reds Are Holding 2,000,000 Germans in Camps By the Associated Press BERLIN, Dec. 27.—United States I Army Secretary Kenneth C. Royali charged today that Soviet Russia has clamped 2,000,000 Germans, in cluding a large number of woman and children, into forced labor camps in Russia. Mr. Royall told a news conference the figure of 2,000,00 does not in clude prisoners of war. He said Intelligence reports show 13,000,000 persons now are held in Russian forced labor camps. He previously had announced this figure in a speech in New York early this month. Mr. Royall said the 13,000.000 in clude 9,000,000 Russians, 2,000,000 Germans and 2.000,000 of other na tionalities, such as Poles and Czecho slovaks. Mr. Royall was questioned closely by newsmen on the accuracy of his figures. If 2,000,000 Germans are held in the Russian camp6, it would mean that the Russians on the average have taken 1,000 Germans a day from their zone of Germany since the war ended. Mr.' Royall was asked about a published report in Washington that Lt. Gen. Walter Bedell Smith will replace Gen. Lucius D. Clay as American military governor in Ger many. He replied: ‘‘There has been no decision to change commanders in Germany and there has been no recent request for retirement by Gen. Clay.” Mr. Royall is nearing the end of a tour of United States Army in stallations in Europe and the Medi terranean. He said he has been ‘‘greatly im pressed by the growing courage of the peoples visited in their stand against totalitarian aggression.” ‘‘The people are impressed by the difference in how democracies treat their people and how others treat theirs,” he said.

Miss Superina was with Irving Ross, European Recovery Program official when he was beaten to death in the Russian sector of Vienna No vember 1. American sources, who reported Miss Superina had been admitted to a hospital, said it would be at least two weeks before she could be ques tioned. They said she has not been able to tell a coherent story since she was released from a hospital in the Russian sector last week. She was said to have suffered a fractured skull and broken jaw at the hands of the men who killed Mr. Ross, whose home was in East Hardwick, Vt. In her original statement to Aus trian police. Miss Superina said the assailants were Russian soldiers.

Plan to Bar Germans , I From Rearming Drawn By Western Powers By tht Associated Press BERLIN, Dec. 27.—A long range plan to prevent German rearmament is reported to have been agreed on by the United States, France and Britain. Gen. Lucius D. Clay, American military governor in Germany, said last night the three Western occu pation powers had reached “sub stantial agreement” on creation of a “military security board.” Gen. Clay disclosed in a radio in terview that the Western powers have been working on creation of such a board. The discussions here tofore have been top secret. Other sources disclosed that the intended duties of the board are to make sure that Germany remains disarmed after the military govern ments stop functioning. Police Inspection Planned. As the military governments of the three Western powers in Ger many are reduced, the military se curity board will take over many of their functions. The board is ex pected to have military inspection police who will search for viola tions of disarmament regulations. - It was announced last week that the American Military Government would make drastic cuts in per sonnel during the coming year. Gen. Clay also said that recov ery in Western Germany “has been amazing” since currency reform was instituted last June but that the three Western occupation zones stili are far from becoming self sufficient. “The deficit between imports es sential to life and exports, being borne by the United States during the present fiscal year, exceeds *1,000,000,000,” he said. “While this deficit will be substantially less during the next fiscal year, there will remain a large deficit for sev eral years.” Limit on Police Arms. Questioned as to whether the Western powers should arm a strong German police force, Gen. Clay said: "The size of the police force should be limited to local needs.” He added 'hat the police force should be armed only with light caliber re volvers and carbines. The British-American airlift yes terday completed its first six months of operation. A statistical survey showed that the Allies had flown 700,172 tons of food, coal and other supplies over the Soviet blockade in that period. The daily average was 3,805.3 tons. Gen. Clay set 4.000 tons daily as the target when the operation started. Nine fatal accidents have been re ported; seven of them American and two British.
