A_ Treasury Chief Gives Congress Details Of Truman Plan By Cecil Holland Secretary of the Treasury Snyder detailed to Congress today an ad ministration tax program calling for an increase of four percentage points in individual income rates, doubling of Federal gasoline taxes, and nearly tripling the tax on automobiles. The tax program, hitting hard at consumers and individuals in the middle and lower income tax brackets, also proposed an increase of $3 a gallon in the tax on liquors, a $4 a gallon increase on beer, raising the Federal take on these two items to $12 a gallon. The program also asks for an increase from 10 to 25 per cent, at manufacturers’ prices, on re frigerators, television sets, radios, phonographs, electric, gas and oil appliances and other consumer durable goods. 10-Cent Levy on Cigarettes. Secretary Snyder also asked for a 3-cent increase per package in the tax on cigarettes, raising the levy to a total of 10 cents. In creases in the taxes on cigars also were requested. Mr. Snyder told the House Ways! and Means Committee at the opening of hearings on President Truman’s request for $10 billion in additional taxes immediately that the increases on excises would produce $3 billion of the amount needed. An additional tax bill for another $6.5 billion will follow later in the session. Increases in individual income tax rates, with a recommended boost from 25 to 37‘/2 per cent in the capital gains tax, Mr. Sny der said, would produce $4 billion annually. During questioning by commit tee members, Mr. Snyder said the increase in individual tax rates should be made effective as of January 1 of this year. If further increases in individual rates are asked later, Mr. Snyder suggested they could be made effective next July 1. Higher Business Tax Asked. He also recommended an in crease of 8 percentage points in corporation normal taxes to pro duce $3 billion annually. This would increase the rate on cor porations earning in excess of $25,000 a year from 47 per cent to 55 per cent. With the excess profits tax, Mr. Snyder said, the increase would boost the maxi mum rate from 77 to 85 per cent. Mr. Snyder also recommended an increase from 62 to 70 per cent, the maximum amount of a corporation’s income that could be taken by taxes. The Secretary even hinted an additional $16.5 billion in taxes may not be enough to balance next year’s expenditures if the de fense program “develops as rapidly as desirable. “Clearly,” he said, “taxes can keep pace with expenditures only if the major part of the Presi dent’s program is put into effect promptly.” Increases in individual income taxes and the boosts in excise taxes in the administration’s pro gram, as outlined by Mr. Snyder, hit hard at the consumer and wage earners in the middle and lower income brackets—the $3,000 to $10,000 categories. Sees Little Disturbance. Mr. Snyder contended the in creased excise taxes would bring only a “minimum disturbance” of the defense economy and result in “little pressure on price ceilings.” The increases asked in individ ual income taxes would boost from $26 to $30 billion the Federal rev enue from about 50 million tax payers. Mr. Snyder said no considera tion has been given at this time to reducing personal exemptions from $600. During the war the allowance was $500. But the Secretary said that any major increases in revenue must come from “the lower taxable (See TAXES, Page A-6.) Dock Strike Cripples Big English Ports By th« Associated Press LONDON, Feb. 5.—A creeping dock strike, denounced by union chiefs as Communist - inspired, crippled the ports of Liverpool and Manchester today. The National Dock Labor Board said 9,867 men were idle out of the nation’s total stevedoring force of some 90,000. At Liverpool, 58 ships stood idle at their moorings and the handling of cargo on another 26 was slowed to a walk. At Man chester, 15 ships were abandoned by strikers and work continued on only five. On Saturday, second day of the wildcat walkout, there were 5,439 strikers. Spokesmen for the unofficial committee running the strike harangued two meetings of Lon don dockers in an attempt to start a sympathy stoppage here. Attendance was poor and the committee decided to defer offer ing a strike resolution to the 27,000 dockers in the London area until tomorrow. Hunt, 5-Percenter Probe Key, Is Indicted in 3 Surplus Deals Consultant for WAA Aided Private Firms, Grand Jury Says James V. Hunt, key figure in the | “five-percenter” investigation, to Idav was indicted on charges of | agreeing to serve private enter prises before the. War Assets Ad ministration while a WAA con sultant himself. Mr. Hunt's activity at WAA was one of the minor themes of the Senate Investigations Subcommit tee's “five-percenter” inquiry of 1949. The inquiry delved into the activities of influence peddlers and developed the story of home freez ers winding up as gifts in some prominent Washington homes. The four-count Hunt indict ment alleges violations of the United States code in the spring and summer of 1946. Assistant United States Attorney Charles B. Murray said that statutes in volved in the indictment cover “technical” offenses by a Govern ment official while still in office. “Unlawful Agreement.” Mr. Hunt is accused of “unlaw fully agreeing to receive compen sation for services to be rendered” to three business firms while he was serving as a per diem con sultant with WAA in the spring and early summer of 1946. Since the cases involve Federal property in wartime, Mr. Murray explained, the normal three-year RFC Inquiry Brings Bricker Demand That Truman Fire Dawson Fulbright's Report Of Favoritism in Loans Is Cited by Republican By Robert K.

The Ohio Senator called for a “general house cleaning of RFC.” Public Hearings Planned. The subcommittee will begin public hearings in about two weeks on RFC loan activities and pro posed reorganization of the agency, Chairman Fulbright an nounced yesterday. Mr. Dawson was due to arrive here today from Brazil, where he represented President Truman at the inauguration of President Getulio Vargas. He said in Rio de Janeiro yesterday that he had no comment on the report issued last Friday by the subcommittee. That report, approved by the full committee, declared that three of the five RFC directors yielded to outside pressure in ap proving several multi-million dol lar loans. Directors Named. It stated that Mr. Dawson, ad viser to President Truman on per sonnel matters, “apparently exer cised considerable influence over certain directors of the RFC.” One of the directors, Walter L. Dunham, acknowledged that he did not resist domination by Mr. Dawson, the report said. The other director’s specifically named in the report were William E. Willett and C. Edward Rowe. There was no mention of the other two members. Chairman W. Elmer Harber and Walter Cos griff. Former RFC Chairman Hartley Hise, according to the report, had said Mr. Dawson tried to dominate him but that he had resisted. Evidence outlined in the report led Senator Bricker today to de mand not only removel of Mr. Dawson but also a thorough in vestigation of the RFC. “I think the report made it per fectly clear that the whole situa j tion reeks of political influence of the worst kind,” he said. He predicted that the Senate Bank ing Committee will not confirm the five RFC directors, all of whom are serving under tempor ary appointments. Chairman Fulbright said yes terday that Mr. Dawson and all others named in the report will have full opportunity, if they wish, to testify jn their own defense at the forthcoming public hearings.

Hershey Plans To Call Childless Husbands, 19-26 General Tells Vinson He Has Worked Out White House Order By George Beveridge Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershey disclosed today he has drawn up a proposed White House order to draft childless husbands between the ages of 19 and 26. The draft chief made public the new step to break down de pendency deferments as he re sumed testimony before the House Armed Services Committee. He stressed that the proposal must clear a myriad of executive agencies before it becomes policy, but said he does not expect any difficulty. The move, along with a cut in physical and mental stand ards, would affect about 220,000 men now deferred for dependency, he said. Would Need Two Dependents. Gen. Hershey said the new or der would continue to defer men with children, men with wives and children and men with more than one dependent, regardless of whether they are married. Thus, the man who supports a wife and parent, or a dependent father and mother, for example, would continue to be deferred. But the man supporting only a wife or one other dependent could be called into uniform. In other developments, mean while: 1. Chairman Vinson announced he will begin an investigation of the armed forces foodstuff pro curement program to see if the services are making use of Gov ernment-owned surplus foods. 2. He also proposed that non veteran members of the National Guard be drafted and that their places in guard units be filled by veterans with less than 27 months of service. Veterans Not Affected, Gen. Hershey said that with present 4-F standards, about 170,000 men would be made draft eligible by the new dependency proposal. Present plans to cut standards, however, would raise this to 220,000, he said. Veterans in the 19-26 age group are exempt by law and would not be affected. The White House order, drawn up within the last few days, re flects a growing sentiment on both sides of Capitol Hill that husbands without children should be drafted. Gen. Hershey said the new order must be cleared with the Secre taries of Labor and Defense, the Budget Bureau and new defense mobilization agencies. He said he has been working closely on such plans with Labor Secretary Tobin and Defense Secretary Marshall, Closed Session Tomorrow. Mr. Vinson said he hoped to take up the question of foodstuff pro curement by the armed forces at an executive session tomorrow, when he will appoint a special in vestigating staff. He made the announcement when Representative Cole, Repub lican of New York, demanded to have answers as to why the mili tary “is not using Mr. Brannan's eggs, wheat and other items.” Mr. Vinson said his proposal to draft non-veteran Guardsmen Is (See DRAFT.

Soviet Union Replies To Note on Conterence By th« Associated Press MOSCOW, Feb. 5.—Soviet For eign Minister Vishinsky handed to the diplomatic representatives of the United States, Britain and France today the Soviet Union’s reply to Western terms for a Big Four conference. American Charge d’Affaires Wal worth Barbour, British Charge John W. Nichols and French Am bassador Yves Chaitaigneau went to the foreign office at Mr. Vishin sky's request.

Joe Foss, wants the Air Force to waive its rule against combat as signments for wearers of the Medal of Honor. And, Senator Case, Republican, of South Dakota, says Col. Foss is coming here to try to get a waiver. Col. Foss, who lives in Sioux Falls, unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for Gov ernor of South Dakota last sum mer. First flyer to destroy more enemy planes in the last war than did the World War I ace, Eddie Rickenbacker, Col. Foss received the medal for his combat exploits in the Pacific. ‘‘Joe said he’d almost be will ing to return the medal If this would enable him to get combat duty,” Senator Case said. The Senator said Air Force officials tell him there is a firm policy prohibiting Medal of Honor winners from combat duty. The Air Force, he said, believes these men are more valuable for train ing or morale purposes than as fighters. Senator Case said an Air Force spokesman told him Col. Foss would be welcomed here, adding: “Everyone knows Joe and ad mires him. All doors will be open to him, from the Chief of Staff down. But from what they tell me, the rule will not be relaxed for Joe.” Col. Foss now is commander of South Dakota’s Air National Guard. This group is being re activated March 1. U. S. Reported Offering Japan ‘Atlantic Pact' on Aggression Under Plan, America Would Retaliate Against Russia in Case of Attack By th« Associated Press TOKYO. Feb. 5.—Authoritative sources said today the United States is prepared to offer Japan this guarantee, after she regains her sovereignty through a peace treaty: Any attack on Japan would be considered an act of aggression against the United States itself; such an attack would result in a United States attack against the “roots of aggression." If accepted by the Japanese the American plan means that, if the Soviet Union attempted an in vasion of Japan, Russian targets could expect to feel immediately the full power of American might — possibly including the atom bomb. The proposal represents the first offer to extend to an Asian nation the kind of guarantee which the United States has given its At lantic pact allies. It is hoped that the threat of immediate retaliation would be sufficiently strong to discourage any potential aggressor from at tacking Japan once this nation regains its sovereignty. Sources said this is the proposal which John Foster Dulles, head of a special American peace mis sion, brought to Japan. Mr. Dulles told the America Japan Society Friday: “Japan . . can, if it wishes, share collective protection against direct aggression.” He made it clear the American offer would not be imposed on _(See JAPAN, Page A-3.) NPA, Other Agencies Criticized in Dealings With Small Business Senate Committee Sees Official Lack of Energy And Proper Imagination By th» Associated Press The Senate Small Business Committee sharply rapped the National Production Authority to day for “a lack of both energy and imagination” in its defense mobilization dealings with little firms. In a knuckle-cracking report to the Senate, the committee accused the NPA of ‘‘insensitiveness” to the problems of little companies at a time when “a large segment of American small business is in imminent danger of bankruptcy through the shortage of basic ma terials.” 1 The committee, headed by Sena tor Sparkman, Democrat, of Ala bama, said for example that under one of NPA’s orders, “some 14,000 aluminum fabricators are going to be forced out of their present busi ness.” Sawyer and Board Also Hit. The committee's also directed criticism at Secretary of Com merce Sawyer and the Munitions Board. The group said, too, there are indications of a lack of co ordination between the Defense Department and NPA. The report is based on hearings which the committee conducted last month. Government officials and a parade of small business op erators testified. Among other things, the report recommends: 1. Creation as soon as possible of a controlled materials program of the World War II type, which would earmark for essential civ ilian use all supplies of critical materials not needed for defense. (NPA is assembling a staff to ad minister a controlled materials plan. Officials said over the week end they hope to put it into ef fect around July 1.) 2.

Nesline Is Indicted In After-Hours Club Killing of Harding First-Degree Murder Charged in Death of Underworld Figure Joseph F. Nesline, Washington underworld figure, today was in dicted for first-degree murder in the Hide-Away Club shooting of his one-time gangland pal, George Paul Harding, 37. A Federal grand jury also ac cused Nesline, 36, of the 1900 block of Chillum road, Hyattsville, of altering the serial numbers on the pistol used in the shooting, which he is also accused of carrying, loaded, without a license. The first-degree charge came as something of a surprise in the light of coroner’s inquest testi mony which indicated that Nes line may have fired in self-de fense. The after-hours bottle club, ini which the slaying took place; January 10, is in the 3100 block of' K street N.W. Harding, of the 3200 block of Fisher road, Temple Hills, Md., died immediately with a single .45 slug in his abdomen- Both men have long criminal records.

AEC Warns Las Vegas Of More Atomic Tests By th* Associated Press LAS VEGAS, Nev., Feb. 5.— The Atomic Energy Commission says there will be another atomic explosion "in the near future.” Residents of this area were warned to stay away from windows during early morning hours “until notice that the cur rent series of tests is completed.” There was no indication when the next blast could be expected. The four previous tests of the series came at about 5:45 a.m. (PST) on January 27 and 28 and February 1 and 2. The AEC warned residents to take precau tions “at the appropriate time each day.” .The testing range is about 70 miles north of Las Vegas. Last 3 Men Executed By Virginia, Closing 'Martinsville T Case Plea to Justice Burton Fails to Save Men From Chair in Richmond By th« Associated Press RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 5.—The State of Virginia closed the book on the “Martinsville seven” today with the electrocution of the final three in the State penitentiary here. A last-minute plea to a United States Supreme Court Justice was futile and the three men walked to their deaths in the basement execution chamber in the space of 45 minutes between 7:30 and 8:15 a.m. Their four companions in the mass rape of a Martinsville white woman were executed Friday morning. In their case, too, attor neys had made an 11th hour plea to save the Negroes from the elec tric chair. Just as Friday’s executions were carried out, the three today were in an atmosphere of dispassionate calm. None of the demonstrations that marked clemency efforts for the seven here, throughout this country and abroad, was in evi dence. Thus the State carried out the directive of the circuit court of Martinsville, first handed down on May 3, 1949. In the twenty months interim five reprieves were granted while the case was carried through the State and Federal courts—four times to the United States Su preme Court or one of its Justices. Order of Execution. The men were executed in this order today: John Clabon Taylor, 24, James Luther Hairston, 23, and Francis Desales Grayson, 40. Hairston, whose brother, How ard Lee, was one of the four exe cuted Friday, made the short, shuffling trip in stocking feet down death row corridor at 7:45 a.m. A physician lifted a stetho scope from his chest and pro nounced him dead at 8 a.m. A last-minute appeal in behalf of the trio was turned down in ! Washington last night when Su preme Court Justice Burton re fused to issue a stay of execution. Just six hours before the first four men—Joe Henry Hampton, 22; Frank L. Hairston, 21; Booker T. Millner, 22, and Howard Hairs ton, 21—went to their deaths on (See MARTINSVILLE, Page A-3.) Sunny Skies to Push Mercury Up to 45 Under the influence of sunny skies, the temperature should : climb to about 45 degrees by this afternoon, the Weather Bureau predicted. The thermometer failed to get low enough yesterday to make it the coldest day of ~the year. It reached 14 degrees at 3:10 a.m., but the 13 degrees recorded Sat urday stands as the coldest day of the winter season and of the last three years. Ice skaters had a brief fling on the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool yesterday morning. But after the sun hit the frozen pond at least, five persons fell through and park police closed the pond to skaters. The police reported skating would be allowed today on the Lily Pond at Kenilworth but not on the Reflecting Pool. Yesterday’s highest temperature was 34 degrees at 3:15 p.m. The thermometer dropped to 29 de grees at 7:05 o'clock this morning. The forecast called for fair weather tonight with a low of 28 in the city and 24 in suburbs. To morrow will be partly cloudy with moderate temperature. I Congress Chiefs Hit Rail Strike As Talks Resume Rayburn, McFarland Denounce Walkout; Speaker Sees Truman Negotiators resumed efforts here to end the railroad strike today amid reports the walkout was still growing and condemna tion of the economy-strangling walkout by House Speaker Ray burn. After a conference with Presi dent Truman, Mr. Rayburn told reporters he saw no indication Congress would enact new legisla tion to cope with the six-day-old deadlock. He said “the only thing you might do is to increase the penal ties.” He recalled that during the railroad strike of 1946 the House passed a bill to enable the Govern ment to draft railroad workers in such an emergency. The strike ended and the bill did not get through the Senate. Mr. Rayburn said he had told the President the walkout was “one of the worst things that could happen to this country in a time like this” and that it is “not only crippling the war effort here, but abroad.” “Ruining Public Relations.” Senate Majority Leader McFar land commented that the rail road unions were “ruining their public relations not only with Congress but with the people.” Meanwhiie, about 300 Railway Express Agency workers were laid off here because of the embargo on express imposed last week. Offi cials said 200 more will be made idle tomorrow, leaving only 25 or 30 supervisors to handle emer gency operations. Chief hope for a settlement rested in slow-moving meetings of railroad and union negotiators here. At a recess this afternoon a National Mediation Board mem ber said a total deadlock existed. J. P. Shields, head of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi neers, said he understood the walkout of trainmen over the country had become worse. “A few are drifting back but more are going out,” he said, j Chairman John Thad Scott of the Mediation oBard, in an un usual move, yesterday urged rail road yardmen to return to work, calilng the strike a “crippling blow to our national defense effort” and a roadblock to settle ment of the dispute. Seek Rock-Bottom Demands. In a 4-hour session yesterday, the board requested union nego tiators to put their rock-bottom demands on paper. Most of the strikers belong to the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, but the engineers, firemen and conductors also are involved in the 2-year-old dispute over wages and hours. The conductors, headed by R. O. Hughes, said they would write specific demands, but some of the others were non-commital. Most of the negotiators believed that, at best, it would take days to grind out an agreement. The pinch tightened on indus try and threatened food shortages in some areas. Washington was virtually cut off from freight shipments nor mally flowing through Chicago and St. Louis, but still was being supplied over southern lines where no embargoes exist. New walkouts at Cincinnati and Toledo caused the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad to clamp freight embargoes on those cities and cut off traffic south to Louisville. Keceipts 20% of Normal. The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad reported car receipts were cnly 20 per cent of normal yesterday and ; virtually at a standstill today from the Chicago and St. Lcuis gateways. Of an average of 32 cars of meat usually arriving on Monday morn ing. only two reached Washington on the .3. & O. today. Instead of 15 cars of fruits and vegetables, two came in. Flour receipts were reduced from 10 to two cars and other food supplies from 40 to 20. Building materials dropped from an aver age of 30 to five cars, and less than-carload deliveries of all merchandise fell off from 60 to 25 cars. On the Pennsylvania Railroad only three carloads of meat were received instead of a normal 33, and the 23 carloads of perishables received was just half of normal.
