Truman Urges Nation
To Give Full Support To Heart Fund Drive President Truman today gave Impetus to the District and na tional campaign for funds to com bat heart disease, declaring citi zens should “give the utmost sup port to the Government and voluntary programs.” As the campaign got under way today in the Washington area to raise $75,000 for fighting the disease in this section, co-chair men for the drive here announced that advance gifts already received amount to more than $7,500. The campaign is being carried on under auspices of the Wash ington Heart Association, an affiliate of the American Heart Association. The latter seeks to raise $5,000,000 throughout the Nation during the campaign which Is scheduled to continue through February 28. Truman Asks Support. President Truman said: "The tremendous toll of heart diseases must be of deep concern to all of our citizens. Combatting the Nation’s leading cause of death has become our most seri ous health problem. "Most recent figures compiled by our national office of vital sta tistics show that more than 625 - COO Americans die annually of diseases of the heart and blood vessels. This total grows each year. "Included among the victims are the young and the old. chil dren of school age, and thousands of men and women in the prim?, of life. The heart diseases, I am informed, now account for one out of every two deaths after the age of 40. Incredible as it may seem, according to vital statis tics deaths from cardiovascular "diseases are greather than the combined total of the next five leading causes—cancer, accidents, nephritis, pneumonia and tuber culosis. Obligation to Help. "I feel that it is the obligation of our citizens to give the utmost support to the Government and voluntary programs established to fight heart diseases. It is es sential that we join with the med ical profession in this public health crusade. “I therefor, call upon every American to inform himself about the heart diseases and the pro gram being undertaken to combat them in the Nation and in his community. “The hope for progress lies in the simple determination of each one of us to c-perate with our physicians in safeguarding indi vidual health and the health of the family and to work with our neighbors in supporting commun ity efforts in the war against heart diseases.” Harold E. Stassen, campaign chairman for the national drivej said-that-leaders of medlctneanif science wre asking for funds that can be used this year. He said: “In terms of need, the Nation wide goal should perhaps be $50, 000,000. not $5,000,000. ~Xtf»tlis to be Set Up. The Washington Heart Associa tion announced that Mrs. Julius Cohen, 3133 Oliver street N.W., has been named to supervise heart fund booths to be set up in hotel lobbies, stores and theaters. The first of the booths was to be opened today in the Hecht Co. j store and the Willard, Wardman Park, Carlton and Shoreham Ho tels. The operation of booths in the theaters is scheduled to begin Thursday. Members of the Washington Heart Association's speakers’ committee are to address civic, service, political and other groups during the campaign. Dr. Bernard J. Walsh, secretary of the as sociation, is scheduled to speak at a meeting of the Bethesda Cham ber of Commerce at 7:15 p.m. to day.

Because of strong headwinds the time of the return flight to the West Coast was almost double that of the eastward flight Thursday. It took 18 hours and eight min utes to return, including an hour and-a-half stop at Olathe, Kans. The plane refueled there. Thursday, the Constitution made a nonstop trip East in nine hours and 35 minutes. The plane carried 81 passengers and 19 crewmen from Washington to Moffett, the largest number ever to make a transcontinental flight. Thursday there were 72 passengers and 18 crewmen aboard. The plane ran into a rain storm near Bakersfield, Calif., but went up to 21,000 feet and rode over It. Pope Delays Comment On Mindszenty Trial iy th« Associated Prats VATICAN CITY, Feb. 7.—-No Papal statement on the Budapest trial of Josef Cardinal Mindszenty is expected before the Cardinal is sentenced, reliable Vatican sources said today. The Pope may, it was added, ir^fer to the trial some time later. ’ The Vatican newspaper Os servatore Romano today reviewed the cardinal’s testimony at his Budapest treason trial and de clared him “morally and civilly innocent.” Whatever happened to him dur ing the period of his imprison ment, the paper said, he did not appear at the trial as a "fright ened man or a conjured one.” The paper did not seem to regard a death sentence as certain. In his testimony, Osservatore said. Cardinal Mindszenty “choose the way of justice and of honor: He admitted what was true and denied what was false.” American Catholic news sources said they had been flooded by re quests for information on when and how the church might take further action against those re sponsible for the arrest and trial of Cardinal Mindszenty. Excommunication already has been decreed against Hungarian officials involved. Filibuster (Continued From First Page.) Lucas, in announcing Democratic opposition tq the Knowland mo ;urday's party caucus, edict the time, up Backs Resolution. The Senate Republican Policy Committee, in a meeting this morning, decided to support the Knowland resolution. Chairman Taft 'of Ohio said he assumed there would be a vote today. He added that Senator Know land’s “main idea” was to get action out of the Rules Commit tee on Wednesday, a move in which he appears to be succeed ing. Senator Taft said he thought the Republican Senators would be divided on the question of curbing debate by a majority vote rather than by two-thirds. He said there would be “substantial op position” among Republicans to the majority procedure. Most Republicans and Northern Democrats are expected to vote to gether for the rules change if a vote develops. It would permit an end to debate on any business be fore the Senate. An effort also will be made to change the necessary vote in curbing a filibuster to a simple majority. If Senate Democrats stick to gether on the Knowland motion, they will be able to defeat it since the Democrats have an edge in the Senate, 54 to 42. Atlantic Pact (Continued From First Page.) change his original plan for visit ing Washington to inquire first hand about the obligation Nor way would have to undertake if she joined. In landing at New York, he told reporters he also intends to look carefully into the “degree of se curity” the proposed alliance would offer his nation. Foreign diplomatic officials, meanwhile, disclosed that the Ambassadors of Sweden and Den mark also are tentatively sched uled to call at the State Depart ment to explain their views on how best to defend Scandinavia against any attack. Swedish-Danish Talks Fall. The Swedish and Danish envoys returned from their home capitals only a few days ago after at tending an unsuccessful confer ence that tried to set up a separate defense pact in Northern Europe, made up of Norway, Sweden and Denmark. These talks collapsed about 10 days ago after Sweden insisted the alliance be based on neutral ity. The American Government served notice that if this were the case, no American arms would go to any of the participants since there was only enough to go to countries co-operating in collective defense arrangements with the United States. Norway then decided to exam ine the possibility of joining the North Atlantic Alliance. Sweden vowed to remain neu tral regardless, while Denmark indicated she was uncertain about what her next step would be. Pope Sees U. S. Admiral VATICAN CITY. Feb. 7 (>P).— Pope Pius XII today received In special audiencfe Vice Admiral Forrest Percital Sherman, com mander of Ahe United States Mediterraneap Fleet. Experts Still Worried About Inflation Despite Sharp Market Break By tht Associattd Prtsi Despite the sharp break in stock and commodity prices last week, some Washington officials say in flation rather than the threat of a depression still is the Nation's most immediate economic prob lem. While losses of some stock shares were being extended as much as S3 in Saturday’s trading, Secretary of Labor Tobin and Dr. Edwin G. Nourse, chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers, chorused that they were not alarmed. And Senator O'Mah oney, Democrat, of Wyoming, said "the postwar boom has not end ed,” and that prices still are high er than “they ought to be.” The Senate-House Joint Eco nomic Committee, of which Sena tor O’Mahoney is chairman, called a public "round-table” session to open tomorrow. It invited in both agriculture and economic experts to ascertain whether the break in prices and increasing unemploy ment presages a general depres sion or is nothing more than a postwar adjustment. Consumer Prices Still High. In addition to the sharp price breaks, January employment was reported to be off 700,000, but Senator O'Mahoney said the 57, 500,000 persons employed last month were more than were em ployed in the first three months of 1948. “We still have a problem in in flationary pressure,” he said, “be cause as long as the Government and people who are employed are buying things they want, the pres sure is upward. Wholesale prices have not dropped halfway down to the level they occupied in 1947. Consumer prices haven't dropped nearly as far as wholesale prices.” Although the week ended with grain prices on the Chicago Board of Trade showing some rallying tendency, cash corn was at its lowest price since December, 1945, and 35 cents under the Govern ment support level. With steers and heifers at the lowest price since 1947, some Corn Belt farm ers were reported losirfg money on their operations. Hogs were at! the lowest price sftice October,! 1946, except the January 3 quo tations. Price Break Fairly General. The week's price break was fairly general all along the line at the wholesale level. It includ ed cotton, fats, oils, eggs and but ter, with com and cotton suffer ing the sharpest setbacks. Cotton lost as much as $1.30 a bale in Saturday's trading, while the losses of up to $3 in stock shares were in addition to the Friday drops which ranged ui> to $5. But the Agriculture Department said some recovery in the prices of meat and meat animals was in prospect within the next month or two and CIO research experts called a conference this week to assemble data which might be the basis for demands for a fourth round wage increase. The recommendations by the experts will be considered by the 51-member CIO Executive Com mittee March 2. The CIO con vention last November declared itself in support of a fourth-round wage increase. Bankers' Head Sees Danger In Federal Reserve Plan NEW YORK, Feb. 7 UP). — The president of the American Bank ers’ Association said today pro posed increases in powers of the Federal Reserve Board contain the danger of depression. The association president. Evans Woollen, Jr., of Indianapolis, said increased powers for the board are being asked by the adminis tration “in spite of the fact that in recent months the economy has largely come into balance." “Business conditions are dis tinctly deflationary in a number of fields,” he said at the mid winter trust conference of the association. “Unemployment is increasing in some lines. Prices are leveling off in some lines, and declining in others. More business failures are being recorded." "In view of these facts.” Mr. Wollen continued, “it is difficult to understand why the Federal Reserve Board should desire stronger, more extensive contras over bank reserves and business credit.” Congress in Brief By the Associated Pross Senate: Democrats plan to block Repub lican attempt to hurry action on antifllibuster rule. Labor Committee resumes day and night sessions on Taft-Hartley repeal. Republican Policy Committee considers effort to force Senate action on filibuster. House: Considers legislation asked by President Truman to give him authority to reorganize executive departments of the Government. Boy, 2, With Foot Caught in Pipe, Is Freed by Firemen Clayton R. Davis, 2, yesterday was freed from a pipe by Fire Rescue Squad No. 1 after his left foot became caught in it while he was playing. The child, son of Coast Guard Lt. and Mrs. Roderick Davis, sr„ 3162 Buena Vista terrace S.E., stepped into a narrow pipe leading into the ground to a gas main shut-off. His brother, Roderick, Jr., 5, informed the neighbors; they told Lt. Davis and he told the Fire Department. Firemen dug around the pipe to a point below the boy’s foot, then broke the pipe with a chisel and hammer and the child was freed. Lt. Davis said his son was uninjured. Hoffman and Acheson To Ask New Funds For ECA Tomorrow The Marshall Plan comes up for review in Congress beginning to morrow when the Administration asks authorization for a second year in the four-year European Recovery Program. First witnesses will be Economic Co-operation Administrator Paul G. Hoffman and Secretary of State Acheson. They will appear before a joint session of the Sen ate and House Foreign Relations Committees. Administration bills to continue ERP for the second year, begin ning next July 1, are due to be submitted today. Exact figures to be asked have not been an nounced but are reported to be $4,200,000,000 for the next fiscal year plus an additional $1,250, 000,000 to cover the period from April through June this year. Congress last year voted $5,055, 000,000 for the foreign aid pro gram but permitted President Truman to spend all the money by April 2, a year from the date ERP got under way. This has been done and additional funds are needed to finish out the cur rent fiscal year. May Omit Aid to China. Provisions of the new aid bill have not yet been made public. One Senator, who asked to re main unidentified, said the present draft omits future aid for Greece, Turkey and China. These nations were included in last year's aid program, but separately from the Marshall Plan. Lawmakers contemplate few changes in the act itself. Mr. Hoffman last week told reporters “it has been a good act and we will seek virtually no changes.” There was speculation that the new state of Israel may be brought under next year's recovery pro gram. Mr. Hoffman outlined for reporters the process under which the infant country could become a recipient of Marshall Plan re covery dollars. He said Israel first must join the organization for European Eco nomic Co-operation ECA's coun terpart. Price Policing Approved. There were other reports that Congress might consider the pos sible admission of Spain—and maybe Yugoslavia—into the ros ter of European recovery nations. Meanwhile, an ECA official dis closed that a committee of four former OPA executives has ap proved an “honor system” under which prices for Marshall Plan goods are policed after they are paid for. They agreed that price ceilings are unwise. Businessmen have “conducted themselves pretty well” in the multi-billion dollar supply job without being subjected to ceil ings by the Economic Co-opera tion Administration, ECA Price Chief Samuel Nakasian said. 2 to Appear in Court Today On Housebreaking Charge Two men were scheduled to ap pear in Municipal Court today on housebreaking charges lodged against them Saturday night by police who said they fought with( one of them before he was sub-; dued. Charged were James Winfield, 27. colored, 500 block of Ricketts court N.W.. and Harvey L. Robin son. 23, colored, 2100 E street N W. Detective Sergts. F. L. Graver and G. W. Chapman said they surprised the two while they were loading a pushcart with groceries from a warehouse in the 800 block of Twentieth street N.W. The detectives said Winfield struggled when they attempted to arrest him and that Robinson escaped during the melee. While the policemen and Win field reported to Emergency Hos pital for treatment of superficial Injuries received in the fight, other policemen who responded to a trouble call at the scene traced Robinson to his home. They said that when they knocked on the door, the suspect leaped from a second-story win dow to a shed roof.

Lilienthal of the Atomic Energy Commission | declared yesterday that Ameri i cans must be given more informa tion about the nature and im ' plications of atomic energy if they :are to be able to act “wisely and democratically” concerning its ! control. “Wide dissemination of facts ; and broad public discussion in | this field must continue and must | increase,” Mr. Lilienthal declared in an address at the midyear com mencement of Lehigh University,; Bethlehem, Pa. “Because of its military aspects and the present unhappy inter national situation,” he said, "it is not possible to make the whole atomic energy field subject to public scrutiny. But as we on the commission have studied the matter, we have found that much of what is going on in this strange new enterprise can with safety be publicly reported and publicly dis cussed." Tenets of Democracy Cited. He counseled the 265 graduates' to keep in mind as ‘‘our basic tenet” that “this democracy of ours is founded upon a faith in the judgment of the people as a whole.” j “It is founded upon a belief that when the people are in formed—honestly and clearly in formed — their conscience and their common sense can be relied upon to carry us safely through any crisis,” Mr. Lilienthal con tinued. “The direction of applied science and the machine by the judgment and conscience of the people requires that we be an informed people.” Referring to President Truman’s plans to extend American tech- j nological aid to underdeveloped areas of the world, Mr. Lilienthal said: “Thus did the American people once more assert and strengthen their historic role of maintaining the offensive in the ceaseless con test for men's minds and loyalties, with the most potent weapon ever devised, a weapon that makes the, atomic bomb seem a firecracker by comparison—an idea.” Major Issue Cited. The core of the idea, he said, is that "technology applied for human welfare can bring not only material well-being but can also nourish the free spirit of men.” Mr. Lilienthal said the major issue of the age is whether science “shall be used to degrade man and destroy him, or to augment the dignity and nobility of human kind.” The true course, he declared, is between the viewpoints of those who feel science is going too far in its researches and should be halted and of those who Urge a maximum.of technology while dis regarding human values. An honorary degree of doctor of laws was conferred on Mr. Lilien thal during the commencement exercises. The Federal Spotlight Top-Bracket Raise Supporters Cite How Pace Took Pay Cut By Joseph Young The case of Budget Director Frank Pace, Jr., is cited by top bracket Federal pay raise sponsors as their best argument for their bill Until his appointment last month, Mr. Pace was making $10,33( a year as Assistant Budget Director. But when President Truman recognized his fine wori and promoted him to the top' post of budget director, Mr. Pace took a $330 cut in salary. He now makes $10,000 a year, the statu t o r y ceiling limit for agency heads. Top bracket pay sponsors declare that the Pace case is a perfect il lustration o f the pay in equities in G overnment executive jobs and the need t o modernize these salaries. Joseph Young MORE INCLUDED—FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover, Rural Electri fication Administrator Claude B. Wickard, Dr. Edward U. Condon of the National Bureau of Stand ards and other bureau chiefs will probably get raises when other Government officials are taken care of. There has been considerable re sentment in Congress that men such as Mr. Hoover, Mr. Wickard and other important Federal of ficials were not included in the top-bracket Federal pay raise bill. Therefore, the Senate Civil Service Committee will insert in the pay measure a provision to permit the President to increase; the pay of about 25 bureau and; agency heads not included in the ^ original measure. The Senate's top j leadership will go along with the amendment and the House is ex pected to do likewise. This will be a stop-gap pro vision until the administration's reclassification proposals, which will be submitted soon to Capitol Hill, can be enacted. These re visions would take care of all other important Government ad ministrative and professional peo ple not included in the top bracket measure. * * ¥ W AGRICULTURE — The Hoover Commission's coming recommen dations for reorganization of the Agriculture Department are des tined to meet a cool reception in Congress.
