Denocrats Cry
'Sham, ''Ph ny'
By The Associated Press
'first Republican move toward a
$6,000,000,000 budget cut brought
a recommended reduction of
$897,072,750 in Treasury-Post-
office funds today, but Democrats
shouted that it was a false start,
a "sham" and a "phony."
The Democrats argued that
$800,000,000 of the total reduction
approved by the House Appropria-
tions Committee is a mere book-
keeping operation. They said it
was simply knocked off the $2,-
031,000,000 estimate, for tax re-
funds for the next fiscal year,
Suggest Reduction of Errors
Democratic committeemen said
the only way to reduce tax refunds
is to reduce the number of tax-
payers or cut down on the number
of errors requiring refunds.
To which chairman Taber
(Rep., N.Y.), who is spearheading
the House Republican drive for a
$6,000,000,000 cut in the Presi-
dent's $37,500,000,000 budget, re-
plied acidly:
"We must expect that kind of
criticism from those wanting ex-
penditures to continue at an un-
tustifiable rate. The Treasury's
Own (figures show that $300,000,-
900 can come off the tax refund
without any change in the laws,
while testimony developed by the
6Ormittee shows a probably sav-
ing of at least $300,000,000 more.
herr can't be very much phony
bout that."
Treasury Budget Reduced
Figuring the tax refund cut, the
Committee levied a reduction of
approximately 34 per cent in the
Treasury budget and less than 1
percent in the Postoffice budget
for the 12 months beginning July
1. Without the tax refund item,
the Treasury cut approximated 16
per cent by the comnttee's own
't that rate," commented Rep.
Gore (Dem., Tenn.), a committee
jiember, "the Republicans will
never accomplish their objective of
a $6,000,000,000 overall budget
cut, for this bill alone accounts
for more than one-third of the en-
tire budget for next year. "

BUDAPEST, March 7-(P)-A

OPA May Get

WASHINGTON, March 7 - ()
-Senator Bridges (Rep., N.H.) re-
ported today that a Senate-House
Conference Committee has agreed
to give OPA about $14,u0,000 to
wind up its affairs by July 1.
OPA officials previously had
said $17,000,000 voted by the Sen-
ate would provide only enough
funds to keep the agency going
through April. The further reduc-
tion indicated the agency possibly
would have to close down earlier.
Senator Bridges said the Sen-
ate-House committee action
"means the OPA is out June 30' or
even sooner unless they drastically
cut down."
The Senate had voted approxi-
mately $7,000,000 for terminal pay
leave for OPA employes, $5000,-
000 for the agency to liquidate, and
$5,000,000 for operations until the
agency closes.
Bridges said House conferees
agreed to Senate provisions for a
"death sentence for OPA, CPA,
OWMR and other hangover war-
time agencies."
The conference report goes to
the House for acceptance, then to
the Senate before being sent to
President Truman.

ment units exists in the West
Lodge dormitory area.
This disclosure came from R. H.
Embree, FPHA manager for the
single men's and women's dorms
which house over 1900 University
students. He declared that, while
there were occasional burnt fuses,
there have been no great or per-
sistent problems of overloaded cir-
cuits on the scale of that which
has been apparent in the family
units elsewhere in the village.
Thus only routine investigations
every sixty days have been found
necessary, he said.
Embree attributed this to the
fat that hot plates and water
heaters are srictly forbidden for
tenants. "When this regulation
was found to be violated and ten-
ants cooked," he continued, "the
main difficulties arising were in
garbage disposal rather than in
power abuses. Roaches became
evident and the tenant violator
was told to refrain from further
The only abuse in the electrical
setup at West Lodge seems to
have been in the fire alarm sys-
tem, Embree said. "The wires,
running along the ceilings as they
do, have all too often been used
for coat hangers and have set off
frequent false alarms. Investiga-
tors have consistently urged that
such practice be halted because of
the confusion and inconvenience
which invariably results."

U.S. Trusteeship
Agreement Near
7-(AP)-The United Nations Se-
curity Council tonight neared
general agreement on an American
proposal to take over the Japan-
ese-mandated islands in the Pa-
cific under a UN strategic area
trusteeship, but put off a final de-
cision when Australia asked for a
committee to study the proposal.
Only the Australian resolution
and one Russian amendment stood
as barriers to passage of the far-
reaching proposal which would
give the United States rights
amounting to virtual annexation
of the vast chains of the Mar-
shalls, Carolines and Marianas.

Carri bean Trip
1y The Associated Press
About $125,000,000 worth of guns
and other military supplies may
be sent to Greece, it was reported
today after President Truman ab-
ruptly cancelled a Caribbean trip
and called Congressional leaders
to confer Monday on what one of
them called "the most fateful sit-
uation" in American history."
At issue was whether the Unit-
ed States would step into the
breach opened by Britain's deci-
sion to liquidate her outposts in
Greece and elsewhere. Greece is
the scene of armed conflict be-
tween the anti-Communist gov-
ernment and leftist foes.
Strengthening Army Program
President Truman is reported to
have under consideration a $250,-
000,000 program of aid to Greece
this year. Officials, who cannot
be named, said today that if this is
finally agreed upon, about half of
the total probaly would be ear-
marked for strengthening the
Greek army to maintain order.
The officials said that putting
an end to the civil strife was
deerned essential to making ef-
fecive any large scale American ef-
forts to "get Greece back on her
feet economically.

in occupied Germany, such mate-
rials as trucks, tanks, planes and
clothing might be transferred by

gress must enact special legisla-

sources other than surplus.
Britain's Plans Satisfactory
It was said authoritatively
there has been no serious proposal
to dispatch American troops to
Greece, and that Britain's plans
to withdraw her forces gradually
were considered satisfactory.
EPresident Truman was ihformed
by aides before his recent trip to
Mexico that probably $250,000,000
would be required altogether for
effective aid to Greece for the re-
mainder of this year, plus possibly
$100,000,000 additional over a five-
year period.
Among the many ,questions still
undecided was whether this gov-
ernment proposed to bolster only
Greece, or to extend aid also to
Turkey and other governments
who might be in distress at least
partly as a result of Russian pres-

Waldrop Says Most
Forms Are Correct
University student veterans were
complimented yesterday by Rob-
ert S. Waldrop, director of the
Veterans Service Bureau, on the
way they hate cooperated with
the University in filling out their
absence reports.
"The veterans have done an ex-
cellent job in filing the forms
this last week, "Waldrop said. "By
their cooperation they have eased

the job which is a bother to all of
us. The tabulating section has re-
ported to me that almost all of the
forms filed last week were made
out correctly."
Claim numbers must be written
legibly and the hours of class
missed, not the days are to be re-
ported, he stressed. Course names,
numbers and the days on which a
class meets need to be filled in
only if a student veteran has
missed that class.

Hartley declared, in a speech for

be avoided. He remarked that the
Supreme Court decision in the
John L. Lewis case, upholding an,

Senate Confirmation

Somedmembers were mystified
by the maneuver. All nine were
present for the vote which had
been predicted last night by
Chairman Hickenlooper (Rep.,
Iowa). One, Senator Conally
(Dem., Tex.), had hitch-hiked a
ride from Waco, Tex., in President
Truman's plane to get here.
When the committee ended its
two and a half hour closed session,
Hickenlooper told reporters that
"some members"-he did not say
who-still wanted to "clarify some
issues in their minds."
"The committee will vote Mon-
day at 10 a.m.," Hickenlooper said.
Sen. Owen Brewster (Rep., Me.)
today predicted the confirmation
of David E. Lilienthal "by a com-
fortable margin."
At a news conference after an
off the, record talk to a group of
Chicago businessmen, Brawster,
asserted, "The violence of the crit-
iscim of those who dare question
the omniscience of Mr. Lilienthal
is strangely suggestive of the
somewhat emotional approach of
Sen. McKellar."
McKellar (Dem., Tenn.) has
spearheaded the opposition to
