Fox President Truman today de scribed as relatively unimportant the recent hush-hush conference on atomic energy at the Blair House, but he sharply criticized the official source he said leaked Information to the press that the meeting was to be held. Telling a news conference that it was the first time any one in vited to a White House conference had tipped off the press, the Presi dent said he didn’t like it then and that he still doesn’t like it. He told a questioner that he knew who was responsible, and when asked if that individual would ever be called into another meeting, the President said he would take care of that matter when it arose. Matter Still Secret. Mr. Truman refused flatly, how ever. to throw any light on the subject matter of the conference, which was understood to have involved discussion of the ex change of atomic Information with Britain. The meeting was held last Thursday night at Blair House and was attended by representa tives of the military. State De partment, Atomic Energy Commis sion and members of the Joint Congressional Atomic Energy Committee. News of the meeting had seeped out earlier that day and Mr. Tru man. at a news conference held just before the Blair House meet ing, had acknowledged that the meeting would be held. It was the first of two major conferences which have been con ducted on atomic matters. 'The second was a meeting at the Cap itol yesterday, called by the Joint Atomic Committee. That confer ence appeared to have eased mis givings of some Congress mem bers that the President might act on his own to give British some atomic bomb secrets. No Deep Secrets. The White House has refused 1 steadfastly to discuss the Blair, House conference. The subject was raised at today’s news con- j ference by a question as to whether the President would com ment, the reporter giving his own observation that the matter had I been overplayed in press and radio. Declaring the meeting was rel atively unimportant, the Presi dent said that ever since he had been in the White House that he had called conferences with Gov ernment representatives on mat ters affecting the welfare of the country and that this was just a continuation of that policy. He added that there was noth ing for the American people to be alarmed about in the discussion. It was then that he remarked that this was the first time that auch a meeting had leaked and emphasized that no deep, dark secret was involved. Seeking to break off the colloquy, the Presi dent said then that he did not in tend to make any comment nor did he propose to answer any more questions. Disinterested in Wherry Views. Another reporter, reverting to the issue later, said that in debate on the Atlantic Pact, some mem bers have raised the question about atomic secrets passing on to participants in the pact. The reporter said Senator Wherry, Re publican, of Nebraska had said this interchange of information was implicit in the pact. The President retorted that Senator Wherry has a lot of un grounded fears in which he is not interested. Later on in the con ference Mr. Truman was asked if he ever intended to make the de tails of the Blair House meeting public and he said he certainly did not. At another point, the President (SeeATOMIcT Page _A^3 7T~ 5 Burned to Death as Truck Overturns on Top ot Jeep ly th» Aoocinttd Pr«« RAHWAY, N. J.. July 21.—Five; persons burned to death today when & trailer truck overturned on a jeep and burst into flames here. A sixth passenger in the jeep was.taken to a hospital in critical condition. The truck driver was uninjured. Police quoted the truck driver, Rubin Chiiafsay of Philadelphia, as saying both vehicles had headed up the ramp to the Hollywood Avenue Bridge in the same di rection. The driver said the jeep stopped suddenly, forcing him to apply his brakes. The truck buckled, rammed over a safety island and overturned squarely on top of the jeep, bursting into flames immediately. Hospital attendants identified the one survivor as Lawrence Bel linger, 31, and the dead as Patrol man Gilbert Brown, Willie Bellin ger, Edna Parks. John Baskerville and Otis Teral, all colored. Bevin Hits U. S. for Demanding Nazi Unconditional Surrender Policy Left Germany 'Shambles' on Which to Rebuild, He Says; Churchill Joins Attack By th« Attociattd Press LONDON. July 21.—Foreign Secretary Bevin told Parliament today that America's unconditional surrender policy for Germany left "a shambles” on which to rebuild the German nation. Winston Churchill, leader of the opposition to the Labor govern ment, replied that the uncondi tional surrender phrase first was mentioned by President Roosevelt ‘‘without consultation with me.” Mr. Bevin, speaking in a foreign policy debate in the House of Commons, said the first time he had heard the phrase was in the newspapers. The Foreign Secre tary was a member of Mr. Church ill's wartime coalition government. Addressing himself to Mr. Churchill, Mr. Bevin said that ‘‘if the phrase had been put to me as a member of your cabinet, I would never have agreed to it.” ‘‘I do not complain,” Mr. Bevin said. ‘‘I took it as it was. But it is rather hard for leaders of the opposition to criticize me when they left me such a sham bles to take on.” Opening the debate, Mr. Be*vin said: “Unconditional surrender left us a Germany without law, with out a constitution, without a sin gle person to deal w'ith and with out a single institution to grapple with, and we have had to build from the bottom on nothing at all.” Replying, Mr. Churchill recalled that he first heard of uncondi tional surrender from the late President, and added: “I had very rapidly to consider whether the state of our position in the world was such as would justify me in not giving support to it. “I did give support to it. but it was not the idea I had formed in (See BEVIN, Page A-6.) President Is Willing For Vaughan to Testily On 'Five Percenters' Truman Doesn't Think Aide Is Mixed Up in Operations, However President Truman said today his military aide, Maj. Gen. Harry H. Vaughan, has permission to testify if called before the Senate committee investigating “five per centers” but he does not believe Gen. Vaughan is mixed up in these operations. At the same time, the Presi dent told his news conference he always has favoaed inquiries to; see that outsiders are nat used to obtain government contracts and that that is part of his continuing! policy. The Senate inquiry into allega tions that “five percenters” boast of getting government contracts through influence already has brought suspension of two major generals and demands that Gen. Vaughan be called to testify at the forthcoming Senate hearings. Gen. Vaughan had said he be lieved 300 “five percenters” are operating in Washington. Mr. Truman was asked if he agreed with Gen. Vaughan's count. The President responded that the newspapermen ought to knowj about that, adding that it was their business to get the informa tion. May Call Vaughan. Senator Hoey, Democrat, of North Carolina, who heads the Senate expenditures subcommittee investigating the “five percenters,” told reporters that if anything shows up in preliminary investi gation “which indicates Gen. Vaughan could contribute any in formation that would be useful to us, we will, of course, invite him to testify.” A reporter asked Mr. Truman if Gen. Vaughan will be permitted to testify if he is called. The Presi dent said Gen. Vaughan certainly will. Mr. Truman said he had read suggestions in the newspapers that Gen. Vaughan is mixed up in the operations of the “five percenters” but he did not believe them. Asked about reports that he had instructed Defense Secretary Johnson to go after “five percent ers” operations in the military establishment, Mr. Truman said that he had long ago instructed the War Assets Administration, the Maritime Commission and the Military Establishment to take every precaution to avoid en tanglements of this sort in the award of contracts.” He added that no particular instructions (See FIVE PERCENTERS, A-3.) j Radiomen's Strike Causes Cancellation ot 2 Flights By the Associated Pres* NEW YORK, July 21.—Ameri can Overseas Airlines radio offi cers struck today, causing can cellation of a flight to Frankfurt, Germany, and one from London to New York.

Two Atom Scientists Labeled 'Reds' by House Spy Probers Lomanitz, Bohm Listed As Members of Cell at California U. Laboratory ly th« Associated Pres* House spy investigators named two atomic scientists today as members of a wartime Communist cell * at a West Coast laboratory. They said they still are tracking down others. The House Un-American Activ ities Committee put the finger on Giovanni Rossi Lomanitz and David Bohm as members of a cell at the radiation laboratory at the University of California at Berkeley. It did so in an official document that reproduced, with a foreword, last month's hearings on Steve Nelson, Communist Party organ izer in the San Francisco Bay area in the early 1940s and now operating in Western Pennsyl vania. Lomanitz until recently was a professor at Fisk University at Nashville. Bohm is a physics pro fessor at Princeton University. The committee said the Soviet Government first tried to use Nel son’s acquaintance with “one of the leading physicists engaged in the development of the atomic bomb'' for infiltrating the Berke ley laboratory. This physicist was not named. The committee indicated Nelson scraped up the acquaintance through the physicist's wife. It said he met her in Spain in 1937, where her first husband, like Nelson, was a volunteer in the International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War. The first husband was killed, the committee reported, and the woman moved to Berkeley, met and married the physicist. The committee said an investi gation cleared the scientist and his wife of any subversive activi ties and said their loyalty never has been questioned by the Gov ernment. But under Nelson’s guidance, the committee said, a cell of five or six young physicists was de veloped in the laboratory. “According to a sworn state ment by a witness,” the commit tee said, "Giovanni Rossi Loman itz was the principal Communist Party organizer. The records of this committee also reflect thfit David Bohm * • * was also a member of this cell.” Both men on two occasions re fused to answer questions about membership in the cell on grounds they might incriminate them selves, the committee noted. “Other alleged members of this Tsee UN-AMERICAN.

Britain Urged to Keep Its Air Raid Shelters By the Associated Press LONDON, July 21.—Home Sec retary Chuter Ede told Parlia ment today it would be unwise to abandon Britain's air raid shelters “in the present position of the world.” He was replying to a member of the House of Commons who asked whether the government would permit removal of those which have become nuisances. The government issued orders early this year against demolish ing any more of the shelters.

Chamber of Deputies ratified the Atlantic Pact today over Russian protests. The vote was 323 to 160. By J. A. O'Leory In a desperate, last-minute move to tie strings to the North Atlantic defense pact, two Re publican opponents — Senators Taft of Ohio and Wherry of Ne braska—today suggested approval of the treaty may supersede re strictions in the atomic energy law against giving away atomic secrets. As the Senate began the final hours of debate, however, all signs still pointed to overwhelming ratification of the treaty without change by nightfall. The Senate has agreed to begin voting on amendments at 5 p.m., with the final vote to follow. While Senators Taft and Wherry were raising the specter of danger to atomic secrets, however, an other Republican, Senator Van denberg of Michigan, took the floor again to plead with his col leagues not to water down the treaty with reservations which might lessen its value as a de terrent to war. Strong GOP Aid Expected. Democratic lines appeared to be almost intact for the treaty and a substantial majority of the Republicans are expected to fol low Senator Vandenberg. Some reliable observers predicted only a dozen votes against the treaty, or at the most, 15. “I continue to believe that this pact—if eloquently approved by the Senate—is our best peaceful and strategic chance to stop an other war before it starts,” said Senator Vandenberg. "If it starts —pact or no pact—it is headed straight in our direction.” Senator Taft took a diamet ricall opposite position in his final plea to the Senate. He predicted the pact will lead this country straight toward a third World War if arms for western Europe are provided in advance of an attack. The Ohioan charged it would start an arms race and the old “balance of power” system, neither of which, he said, has prevented war in the past. “Earlier, Senator Wherry/ the Republican floor leader, revealed for the first time that he will not vote for the treaty if his amend ment disavowing any legal or moral obligation to arm Western Europe is not adopted. Senator Donnell of Missouri, another Republican opponent, in terrupted to suggest that Senator Wherry change his reservation to make it clear there is no obligation to ship atomiv bombs abroad or furnish other countries any atomic information. Senator Wherry welcomes the suggestion. Taft Joins in Debate. Senator Taft broke in to sug i gest the reservation already would protect the atomic bomb by re ferring to military weapons. Sen ator Taft asked Senator Wherry, I however, if he had considered the 'possibility that the atomic energy |law limiting the disclosure of in formation may be superseded by jthe pact because a treaty super sedes a law. Senator Wherry argued the other nations will expect modem, up-to-date weapons oof defense. Senator Wherry had raised questions yesterday about the A bomb and the treaty. At the time, Chairman Mc Mahon of the Senate-House Atomic Energy Committee said the treaty carried no obligation to share atomlb secrets. He said the question should be considered when the arms-for-Europe pro gram is taken up by Congress. In his closing argument Sena tor Wherry charged that Amer ican policy in the Pacific is “drift ing like a ship without a rudder,” and inquired: Arc we going to close the front door to communism In Europe and leave the back door to com munism wide open in the Pa cific?” Senator Wherry renewed a de mand he made last year that Gen. Mac Arthur be brought home from Japan to report to Congress on the situation in the Pacific area. Indications are that atfleast three efforts will be made to tie qualifying strings to the docu ment before the final roll is called on ratification.

McCormick Sale, Rumored for Days, Is Announced; New Owners Plan to Retain Staff The Washington Times-Herald was published today under new management as the property of Col. Robert R. McCormick s Chi cago Tribune Co. The sale for an unspecified amount was announced shortly after midnight by both newspapers. The seven Times-Herald execu tives who inherited the newspa per from the late Mrs. Eleanor "Cissy” Patterson—cousin of Col. McCormick—announced they had been authorized to say business would continue as usual. The Tribune announcement said sim ply, "The Chicago Tribune bought the Washington Times-Herald to day. The present management will be continued.” Times-Herald executives had nothing more to say about the transaction, except to announce the present staff would be re tained. Mrs. Patterson, who died here July 24, 1948, left the Times Herald to seven of her top execu tives—William C. Shelton, Frank C. Waldrop, Edmund F. Jewell, Michael W. Flynn, H. A. Robinson, J. Irving Belt and Mason S. Peters. Her only child, Mrs. Felicia Gizycka, who received $25,000 a year and minor real and personal property, promptly contested the will. After several months of complex litigation over the $16,500,000 Pat terson estate, the seven executives reached an out-of-court agree ment with Mrs. Gizycka. They agreed to pay her a $400,000 settle ment, free of the heavy inheri (See TjMES-HERAIiD,"Pg7~A-6J Israeli Army Officers Described as Leaders Of Red Arab Campaign Communist Captives Say* 3 Are Secretly Directing Work Among Refugees By Stanley Swinton, Associated Prats Foreign Correspondent GAZA, Egyptian-occupied Pales tine, July 21. —Communist cap tives of the Egyptian Army said today that three Israeli army of ficers secretly direct a tightly or ganized campaign to spread c#m munism among the 216,000 ragged Arab refugees in this Biblical area. Egyptian Army intelligence offi-‘ cers permitted this correspendent to talk to Communist suspects rounded up in raids in the past two days and to examine what the army described as captured documents. The intelligence men said lead ers of Palestine Arab CommufiMa have been called across the fron tier into Israeli territory 14 times since April for general meetings with the three men described as Israeli officers. A 23-year-old Bedouin captive said the general secretary of the Israeli Communist Party declared at one such meeting that the Israeli Communists would over throw the present government of Israeli within three years and set up a soviet state. This Bedouin said the secretary, in the presence of the three men described as officers, attacked Israeli Premier David Ben-Gurion and President Chaim Weizmann as tools of the British and Amer icans. The secretary also was said to have declared Israel Com munists must allow Ben-Gurion and Weizmann to remain in pow er now, on the ground that a flow of American donations is essential to Israel economic development. Captured papers and pam phlets—declared to have orig inated In Israel—included “com munist strategy and tactics” and a “Political Handbook.” Both were printed insfde the covers of a children’s arithmetic book. These pamphlets called for in tensification of propaganda unity of Jewish and Arab Communists, unquestioned obedience to Com munist leaders, and resistance to "Anglo-American imperialism in the Middle East ” __ Philip M. Kaiser Named Assistant Labor Secretary President “Truman today an nounced appointment of Philip M. Kaiser to be an Assistant Secretary of Labor. Mr. Kaiser now is director of the Labor Department’s International Labor Office. His new job, created by the Reorganisation Act of 1945, has not been filled in two years. It gives the Lebor Department three assistant secretaries. Police Drive Forces Club Frequented by Gamblers to Close Precinct Vice Squad Removed for Failure to Act in Another Case By J. Theodore Crown Police Chief Robert J. Barrett's latest crackdown on vice so far has resulted in closing a club fre quented by gamblers and remov ing a precinct vice squad from its assignment for failure to act promptly to close another place, it was learned today. At the same time, Maj. Barrett made it clear he wants only rank ing officers to take charge of his new setup for curbing vice in the precincts. He told The Star he has rejected several of those nom inated as precinct vice officers— one because he was a corporal. The new vice crackdown is operating two ways—to "light a fire” under his own officers and to make life uncomfortable for the gamblers. To illustrate what he is doing, Maj. Barrett disclosed two cases. In the first, a group of well known gamblers were frequenting a new club in the downtown area. The man on the beat spotted them but saw nothing untoward going on. On orders of Maj. Barrett, a policeman visited the club nightly and took down the names of all those present. Inquiries also were made on how much rent t as paid and other details of the c’ub's op eration. The man who ran the ciud got annoyed by the police attention and threatened to sue for harass ment. Maj. Barrett retorted that if the place did not close, hfe and Capt. Howard V. Coveil, com mand officer of the First Precinct, would call personally. The place closed. The other incident cited by Maj. Barrett was one of those which led to his new order putting more responsibility on the precincts. A precinct was notified that an establishment featuring gamb ling and liquor violations was operating within the precinct. Nothing happened. The precinct was notified again and still the complaints came in. The squad assigned to control vice in the precinct—a sergeant and two corporals—was relieved of the as signment. Maj. Barrett’s war on vice, he indicated, is part of his campaign to give the city a better Job of j policing. He said more men are on j the street today than at any pre- j vious time and the department, now has only 126 vacancies, j Twenty men are now being rushed through special investigations to get them on- the force in a hurry. Congress Chiefs Set Sept. 1 as 'Target' For Adjournment Social Security, Minimum Pay Await Action With School Aid Also Pending ly th« AnociaUd Press Congressional leaders have set September 1 as the target date for adjourning this session of Congress. They aren't too optimistic about it and figure it may be Labor Day or later before all the odds and ends of legislation are cleaned up. House Majority Leader McCor mack told newsmen he is sched uling the House docket to clear iup all “must” bills by tha end of August. In this category are bills to in crease the minimum wage pay able in interstate industry, to ex tend social security coverage, anc possibly to provide Federal aid t< education. I Labor Action Delayed Until 1950 No action is planned this ses sion on other major bills still | pending, including revision or re peal of the Taft-Hartley Labor Act. They will lay over until the second session of the 81st Corn gress, meeting in the congressional election year 1950. Any minimum wage legislation brought to the House floor may be stripped of controversial fea tures. It simply would raise from 40 cents to 65 or 75 cents the minimum hourly wage, without extending the protection of the minimum to workers not now cov ered. A bill to broaden social security coverage is pending in the House Ways and Means Committee and probably will be sent to the House floor in a week or so. Education Bill Stymied. Aid-to-education legislation has been passed by the Senate and is hung in the House Labor Commit tee. It is being opposed by a for midable group which says that it disariminates against children at tending Catholic and other reli gious schools. A top House leader said it won't be brought out for a House vote unless there is a good chance to pass it. A possible compromise is a Senate-passed bill to aid States in providing health assistance to all school children. A high House Republican pre dicted that there will be no House action this year on the education j bill. House May Finish First. “That's going over to next year,” he said. “If we leave out the Catholics, we will catch the dickens from the Catholics, and if we put them in, we’ll catch it from the Baptists. You can’t win that kind of a fight.” The House may finish its work around August 19 and go into a series of three-day recesses while waiting for the Senate to wind up its docket. Technically, under the 1946 Congressional Reorganization Act, Congress must adjourn not later than July 31 of each year except in time of war or national emer gency. House experts have held that since peace treaties have not been signed, the Nation still is at war and the adjournment dead line in the 1946 law does not sppiy._._ Bulletin Refinery Explodes .

Vital Decisions On Farm Bill Due In House Today Coalition Threatens To Deal Death Blow To Brannan Plan ly lh« Associated Press A formidable Democratic-Re publican coalition threatened t® take control of the House today and deliver a death blow at th® Truman administration's new farm Jbill. The House was called into ses sion two hours earlier than usual to make crucial decisions that may determine th- political for tunes of many Farm Belt Repub licans and Democrats in the 195® congressional campaigns. There was talk of all sorts of compromises, but before nightfall the House may vote to: 1. Scuttle or water down th® administration-back b>ll that call® for a three-crop trial run of th® Brannan farm subsidy plan. May Kill Aiken Law. 2. Kill outright or postpone th® effective date of the Aiken law enacted by the Republican-con trolled 80th Congress. This law, | set to become effective next year, would permit a flexible 60 to 90 per cent of parity support pro gram for major crops. 3. Continue the present farm program in 1950. This program supports major crops at a rigid 90 per cent of parity (a price fixed by formula calculated to giv® farmers a fair purchasing power.) This is done through Government loans and purchases that keep price-depressing surpluses off th® markets. Farmers do not now get * i direct subsidies from the Govern ment. The House debate, frequently bitter, ran like this: The administration side—Speak : ers argued that losses such as hav# been suffered in the potato sup port program could wreck the present farm program. They said that limited subsidies, instead of price supports, are the answer. I Representative Pace, Democrat, of Georgia, guthor of the adminis tration bill, wanted to know how long the ^people would permit spending "hundreds of million* of dollars to support a program that lets food rot on the ground or feeds it to the hogs.” Foes Fear Peacetime OPA. I The opposition—Leaders charged > that the administration bill, which promises cheaper food through , subsidies, gets its support prin ’ cipally from organized labor—not from farmers. They argued that subsidies would lead to a peace time OPA and cost billions more than present price supports. I Congressional corridors were j crowded with farm organization i representatives. The American Farm Bureau Federation and th# National Grange are fighting th# administration bill. The National Farmers Union is supporting it. Representative Gore, Democrat, of Tennessee, usually an admin 1 istration supporter but now lead ing the opposition coalition, called for a vote on his substitute for the administration bill. His measure would throw overboard the trial I run Brannan plan and continue the present price support program. Mr. Gore predicted 100 Demo crats will join him in the show down voting. Indicative of the heat of th# battle, Republican leaders sent out orders for every one of the 171 Republican House members who can “breathe and stand” to b# on hand today to vote against the administration measure. Cooley Won't Concede Defeat. Chairman Cooley of the Hous# Agriculture Committee, who with Mr. Pace is leading the adminis-, tration's battle, refused to con cede defeat. But he admitted on the House floor that “we are in trouble.” Administration forces aimed , their hottest lire not at the Gore substitute’s provision continuing the present program but at its provision postponing but not kill ing the Aiken law. authored last year by Senator Aiken, Repub lican, of Vermont. Administration leaders indicat ed they will feel they have won a victory if the flexible support principle of the Aiken law is re pealed, even if the Brannan trial run bill is lost. Secretary of Agriculture Bran nan presented the administra tion’s new farm plan to Congress first in April, proposing that per ishable crops be allowed to sell at what the market would pay.
