Truman Says Inflationary Pressure
Is Still Great, We Must Hold Line
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 29-President Truman reported with a cheerful
smile today that reconversion is ahead of schedule.
He read to his news conference a progress report on "the first 100 days
of reconversion" and commented that the administration has riot been
It concluded with the statement that "the cost of living has declined 0.3
of 1 per cent since the surrender of Japan compared with a rise of approxi-
mately 1.3 per cent in a comparable
period after the last war."
The chief executive emphasized,S
however, that the country is still in
the midst of reconversion, that "in- T
flationary pressures are still great" o ietn orce
and that "we must continue to hold
Decrease in Food Costs
The cost of living figures, he said,
came from the labor department.
The report noted, that "some of the
decrease is due to the seasonal de-
crease in some food costs."
On other phases of reconversion,
the president reported:
1. "Employment in non-war activi-
ties has increased since V-J day. Total
employment has now returned to the
V-Jday level and is expected to con-
tinue to rise.
2. "The job of reconverting our
plants from war to peace is virtually
3. "OPA has reduced orders and
regulations on its books to 55 from
a wartime peak of 650. ODT has 14
orders standing, as compared with
3,050 during the war. About 85 per
cent of wartime export controls have
been lifted, and 75 per cent of war-
time import controls."
4. "Most peacetime products are
already in production or ready to
5. "There has been an upsurge of
strikes," attributed partly "to the fact
that all parties held their grievances
in check during the war." Since
August there have been some 1,500
new strikes involving 1,500,000 work-
Conferees Agree On
WASHINGTON, Nov. 29- (AP) -
Carefully avoiding controversial is-
sues until other business was cleared,
the labor-management conference
agreed today on two phases of volun-
In its first general business session,
the conference also approved resolu-
tions opposing racial discrimination
and urging establishment of a semi-
permanent labor-management ad-
These steps, taken in perfect har-
mony, followed a successful drive by
John L. Lewis to require unanimous
approval before any conference reso-
lutions could become effective.
Only three of the six subcommittee
reports reached the conference floor
and all were speedily adopted.
Most important of the reports
adopted were those covering negotia-
tion of initial collective bargaining
agreements, and settlement of griev-
ances which arise under present con-
tracts. Both ruled out strikes or lock-
outs until "all other peaceful proce-
dures"-including voluntary arbitra-
tion-have been exhausted.

LONDON, Nov. 29 - A spokesman
of the Iranian embassy declared to-
day Russia had threatened to rein-
force Red Army garrisons in North-
ern Iran if fresh Iranian troops mov-
ed up into that troubled area, where
insurgent activities now are reported
to have spread to a third province.
In Washington, Iranian Ambassa-
dor Hussein Ala quoted a Russian
note to Iran as saying that bloodshed
would result if more Iranian forces
moved northward, and that this
would necessitate Russia's sending
more Soviet forces into Iran. Russia
occupies the northern part of the
country under a wartime agreement
with Britain and Iran.
Russia Rejects Request
Both Ala and the spokesman here
said Russia had rejected Iran's re-
quest to send reinforcements north-
ward after disorders, blamed by the
Iranian government on "Separatists,"
broke out last week in Azerbaijan, the
northwest province of Iran bordering
A Russian commander stopped four
battalions of Iranians near Kazvin
northwest of Tehran, refusing to al-
low them to go further.
Dispatches from Tehran, mean-
while, said that civil disturbances had
spread to three northwestern prov
inces, as a force of insurgents rushed
toward Resht, 15 miles from the Cas-
pan Sea, in Gilan Province.
Both the United States and Britain
have sent notes to Russia concerning
Iran. The American note suggested
the withdrawal of all outside forces
and the British message suggested
that the Russian commander at Kaz
vin must have misunderstood th
terms of the three-power agreemen
guaranteeing Iran's sovereignty.

Thuma, Arthros Offer
Aid to 696 Ex-G.Is
Serving as counselors to the 696
veterans enrolled in the literary col-
lege, Prof. Burton D. Thuma of the
psychology department and Prof.
John Arthros of the English depart-
ment, both veterans themselves, are
attempting to help the veteran ad-
just to academic civilian life.
The advisers anticipate such prob-
lems as changes of motivation result-
ing from experience in the armed
forces and the need for adjustment
to university work. The counselors

Prof. Arthur Van Duren, chair-
man of the academic counselors, as-
serted that, as more veterans return
to the University, "we are gaining ex-
perience in handling their academic
problems." Prof. Van Duren added
that the returning serviceman is far
more serious in purpose than the av-
erage civilian student.
Plan Would Add Two
Years to High School
By The Associated Press
LANSING, Nov. 29-A group of
educators, fearing a shortage of post-
war jobs for persons under 20, have
approved a plan to add two more
years to the Michigan public school
The state committee on the secon-
dary (high) school program, in a
publication of the department of pub-
lic instruction, declared that the high
schools of Michigan may be chal-
lenged to extend their grade coverage,
to reorganize their offerings and to
adjust their programs to meet the
needs of all Michigan youth.
The Michigan Public Education
, Commission in 1944 endorsed a sim-
lar proposal for addition of the 13th
and 14th grades.
"Youth between the age of 17 and
20, the report declared, "may become
3 a lost and unwanted generation. Even
the provision of a year of compulsory
military training will not avail to
bridge that four year gap between
the secondary school and the job."
