Franco Probe
Likely To Win
UN Approval
Council To Discuss
Proposal Next Week
By The Associated Press,
NEW YORK, April 20-Australia's
proposal for an investigation of
Franco Spain by the United Nations
Security Council appeared tonight to
be headed toward almost certain ap-
proval when the council resumes dis-
cussion of the Spanish question next
Strong support of the proposed in-
quiry was assured when it became
apparent that advocates of an im-
mediate world-wide diplomatic break
with Spain were lining up behind it.
Mexico First
The first nation to announce pub-
licly that it would support the motion
of Australian delegate W. R. Hodg-
son was Mexico, one of the most ar-
dent backers of the Polish move for a
diplomatic quarantine of the regime
of Generalissimo Franco.
Mexican Foreign Minister Fran-
cisco Castillo Najera said in Wash-
ington that the Australian proposal
was a "good compromise" and an-
nounced that Mexico would support

Polish Delegate Oscar Lange, spon-
sor of the original resolution calling
for an immediate break with Spain,
was reported earlier to have assured
Hodgson of Poland's support.
Others Silent
Russia and France, the other two
advocates of a diplomatic break, re-
mained silent on their plans, but ,it
was believed they would support the
Hodgson compromise.
Under this plan, a five-man com-
mittee would be appointed to deter-
mine whether the Franco regime was
a threat to world peace. The com-
mittee would be required to report
back by May 17.
While some of the delegations
would not commit themselves, pend-
ing further study of the proposal,
the plan was generally well received.
There was no immediate opposition
from any quarter.
The Spanish question, which al-
ready has been subject to two days
of bitter debate, was not expected to
come up before Wednesday. Ahead of
it on the agenda is the controversial
Iranian question which will be taken
up when the council re-convenes
Cost of Homes
Reduced, More
Will Be Rented
WASHINGTON, April 20 - (A) -
The government tonight ordered new,
reduced cost ceilings for the bulk of
new dwellings and directed that one-
fourth of them be built for rental.
The National Housing Administra-
tion order will steer, by priority ac-
tion, most of the country's residen-
tial building materials into homes
well under the present $10,000 sales
and $80 rental limit.
Announced by Housing Expediter ;
Wilson W. Wyatt, the order directs
One Fourth Rental
One-fourth of the dwellings hence-
forth authorized in any city must be
built for rental; and of these, at least
half must rent at or below ceilings'
which range from $40 monthly in
New Orleans to $65 in New York.
Half of all homes built to be sold
must come below a new price line
which also varies from city to.city;
$4,500 in New Orleans, for instance,
and $9,000 in New York.
It will be the job of Federal Hous-
ing officials over the country to in-
duce builders to undertake the low-
cost and rentalhousing projects.
Withheld Priorities
They must account for over 60 per
cent of authorized dwellings.
The government's whip is the with-I
holding of priorities on scarce lum-]
ber, materials and supplies.
Other houses may range in price upl
to the $10,000 sales and $80-a-month
rental limits already fixed for the
veterans' housing program but1
Wyatt said that the new "channel-
ing" order will immediately "increase
by 50 per cent the homes built undert
$6,500" in April, May and June.

Lewis Confers
With Truman
On Coal Strife
'No Conclusive Result'
Reported from Talk
WASHINGTON, April 20 - A) -
President Truman took a hand in the
20-day soft coal strike today in an
unheralded White House talk with
John L. Lewis and Secretary of La-
bor Schwellenbach.
The two had a 15-minute confer-
ence with Mr. Truman and Recon-
version Director John W. Snyder but
the White House said afterward the
meeting had been without any "con-
clusive result."
In Good Humor
Nevertheless Lewis and Schwellen-
bach left the meeting in obvious good
humor and the labor secretary said
he intended to get in touch with Ezra
Van Horn, Chairman of the Mine Op-
erators Joint Negotiating Commit-
It was considered probable the
President had asked Lewis, chief of
the 400,000 idle United Mine Work-
ers, to resume joint negotiations with
the mine owners. However, Charles
G. Ross, White House press secretary,
told reporters he could neither con-
firm nor deny whether the President
had made any proposal.
In response to questions Schwellen-
bach declared there would be no re-
sumption of strike negotiations,
either with both sides separately or
together, until next Tuesday at the
Lewis Has Date
Lewis has a date Wednesday at
Hazelton, Pa., to attend the meeting
called to form UMW's new contract
demands for 72,000 anthracite min-
ers. The hard coal contract expires
May 31.
The bituminous, or soft coal, situ-
ation has been at an impasse since
April 10 when Lewis walked out of
joint negotiations with the opera-
tors. He said further talks were use-
less. Lewis wants a settlement of his
demand for a union-administered
health and welfare fund for miners
financed by a tonnage levy on coal
production, and also for improvedi
safety conditions.

The University has taken great
pains in cooperating with the engi-
neering school at Wright Field in
modifying certain courses to insure
well-balanced training in the three
phases of engineering most vital to
this new development.
Subjects Included
The course includes the following
subjects: theory of aviation, elec-

topics in advanced calculus.
The course is under the supervi-
sion of Prof. Emerson W. Conlon,
chairman of the Department of Aero-

In Manchuria
CHUNGKING, April 20 -- t/P_
Chinese Communists encircling Har-
bin declared today they intended to
seize that north Manchurian metro-
polis, which the Government indi-
cated it would not even try to defend.
A Government spokesman said the
situation in Central Manchuria was
"very grave" now that Communist
troops have taken Changchun, the
capital, 150 miles southwest of Har-
A Communist spokesman warned
that the encircling troops would seize
Harbin when the Russian army pulls
out next Thursday, "if a status of
civil war still prevails in Manchuria"
That would give General Marshall,
special U.S. envoy to China, only five
more days to work out a truce first
between the warring factions.
Marshall was in almost continuous
conferences with both Government
and Communist officials. He had not
scheduled a meeting of his truce
committee of three, which earlier
this year worked out an armistice for
the rest of China outside Manchuria.
A Government spokesman charged
that Communist irregulars already
were 'infiltrating Harbin. He said
the Government had no army forces
in Harbin-only civil officials.


Slas iin Pastry
Output To Allow
For Wheat Cut
Anticipated Shortage
May Result in Queues
Varying comments.made yesterday
by Ann Arbor food dealers indicated
that civilian consumption of bread
will not be drastically affected by the
new government order cutting wheat
deliveries by 25 per cent.
One baker revealed that he had
already cut the weight of each bread
loaf 10 per cent. The new cut in
wheat supply, he believes, can be
absorbed by curtailing production of
Complacent View
A rather complacent viewpoint was
taken by one grocer who declared,
"we don't know from day to day about
cuts. Wait and see what God al-
mighty will do next. But we'll do our
part to help the cause."
Prospects of a postwar version of
the queue were presented by a man-
ager of one grocery store who specu-
lated on the possibilities of a daily
line-up of housewives at the bread
counter in anticipation of an early
Further comments in this vein
came from another grocer who said,
"whenever something gets scarce, the
average housewife will run to buy
more than she needs."
Paper Talk'
One incredulous baker said he
thought "the whole thing is a lot of
paper talk."'
Differing views on the availability
of cake flour were expressed by two
grocers. One declared he expects
his stock to be depleted shortly with
no replacements forthcoming, while
another grocer said there should be
plenty of flour now, and as soon as
the southwestern crop is harvested,
there should be enough surplus to lift
the government restriction.
Persons accustomed to dining out
will find less bread served with their
dinners. One proprietor said he plans
to attach a note to his menus asking
people to ration their own bread con-
sumption. In addition, he declared,
"I shall have to serve fewer rolls and

Another r estaurant owner ex-
pressed hope that he will be able to
continue serving as many sandwiches
as desired. But, he added, "I may

o Bread Famine Foreseen Here

Federal Offer
Of Bonus May
Induce Rush
Wheat Store Release
Would Ease Shortage
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO, April 20-Americans
may have to cut their consumption
of bread and other wheat products
even more than the 25 per cent ord-
ered by the government unless the
federal bonus inducement brings a
rush of stored wheat from the farms,
milling sources indicated today.
A survey of the government's pro-
gram for a 25 per cent slash in flour
consumption to combat famine in
Europe brought these reactions:
McKenzie Doubtful
1-C. D. McKenzie, president of the
Miller's National Federation, said un-
less farmers release their stores of
wheat it is "extremely doubtful"
sufficient grain would be available
at the mills to produce 75 per cent of
the flour they turned out last year.
2-Dr. Franklin Bing, director of
the American Institute of Baking,
the scientific and educational arm
of the American baking industry,
said the wheat slash probably would
mean a horizontal one-fourth reduc-
tion in all products containing flour.
There was no prospect, he added, that
bread production could be kept up
with a corresponding additional re-
duction in other bakery goods.
Bonus To Succeed
3-Most farmer, milling and grain
trading sources said they believed the
plan for a bonus payment of 30 cents
a bushel would succeed in bringing
stored grain from the farms although
a "wait and see" attitude was taken
by some.
4-Dr. Morris Fishbein, editor of
the Journal of the American Medical
Association, said the slash in wheat
consumption would "do more good
than harm" for the average Ameri-
can. Dr. Fishbein said the nutrition-
al value of wheat products was avail-
able in other foods and that overeat-
ing was an important contributing
factor in shortening longevity after
middle age.

The announcements by the three
governments followed disclosure of
the six-point program by the United
States undertaken to help meet what
President Truman called history's
greatest threat to mass starvation."
In London, Prime Minister Attlee's
office declared that "His Majesty's
Government are ready to play their
part" along with the United States
in steps to reduce the consumption
of wheat.
