League House
Mothers Hit
Later Hours
Threaten To Let
Contracts Lapse
Protesting a proposal which would
give upper-class women week-day late
permissions, a large number of
League House mothers have threat-
ened not to renew existing contracts
if the new hours are adopted.
In interviews with The Daily yes-
terday, house mothers said that they
do not want to sit up to 11:30 every
night and make sure that the girls
sign in. "I'll take men instead," one
of them declared, adding that she
might consider accepting only fresh-
man and sophomore women.
Pointing out that "it's bad enough
to have to wait up on week-end nights
now," the house mothers interviewed
said that they had informed both the
Dean of Women's office and their
house presidents of their stand.
The proposal, now under consider-
ation, would give senior women 11:30
permissions on week nights and Sun-
day, while juniors would have one
11:30 permission a week.
Small Protests
Talk of Possible
Business Slump
WASHINGTON, Oct. 29-(P)-Ci-
vilian production chief John D.
Small today cautioned the nation
against talking itself into a business'
He declared an industrial de-
cline "is not inevitable" if labor and
management use common sense, rea-
sonableness and restraint.
Taking cognizance of predictions
from some quarters that a recession
may start within the next few
months, Small told a news confer-
"It looks like an atmosphere is be-
ing built up in thinking that way,
but, a recession is not inevitable if
we keep going as we are now. All this
talk creates fears. If repeated enough
times, people will begin cutting
down, retrenching and won't go
ahead with their plans and we will
have a recession."
Although saying he does not ex-
pect a drop inproduction and em-
ployment, Small added that "even if
it cores, I don't think it will amount
to much."
In support of his optimistic views,
Small pointed to CPA's production
report for September, which showed
continued peak output of most con-
sumer goods.
For example, shipments of sewing
machines increased 21 percent over
the previous month; vacuum clea-
ers 12 per cent.
While production continued high
during September, Small's report saw
little hope for further increases the
rest of the year. This is due partly
to the stabilization of steel produc-
tion at 90 per cent of capacity, thus
allowing no erpansion in outpue of
machinery and equipment, the report
Rogge Scores
Sen Wheeler
PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 29-(A3)-
C. John Rogge, former Assistant U. S.
Attorney General, said here today his
dismissal last Friday was "strictly a

Burton K. Wheeler job."
Rogge, removed from office by At-
torney General Tom C. Clark after
he had outlined Nazi propaganda
methods in this country in a Swarth-
more College speech, said today in a
Kiwanis Club luncheon talk that the
Montana Senator had intervened.
He said that in a report to Clark,
Wheeler's name was mentioned, "then
the pressure began. Wheeler con-
ferred with President Truman Thurs-
day, and Friday I got the phone call
giving me the boot."

Durable Goods
Fall from OPA
Price Control
WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 - (P) -
OPA greatly expanded its decontrol
program tonight by removing price
ceilings from radios, lamps, small
electrical appliances, kitchenware,
glassware and many other consumer
durable goods.
Previously the agency abolished
ceilings on fats and oils used in
soaps, paints and varnishes, decon-
trolled the $260,000,000 ice business,
and opened the way for possible shoe
price increases by raising ceilings on
calfskin leather.
The decontrol action on the dura-
ble goods was made effective at mid-
night tonight.
OPA said the durable goods price
lids were removed because the arti-
cles "have been found to be unimpor-
tant in business or living costs or
supply has been found to be in ap-
proximate balance with demand."
The agency pointed out that a
large number of consumer goods still
remained under ceilings, including
"all major electrical appliances such
as household mechanical refrigera-
tors, washing machines, electric
ranges and vacuum cleaners; cooking
and heating stoves; floor covering;
bedding products such as springs
and mattresses; and all major items
of household furniture."
Radios and electric phonographs
were decontrolled, the agency said,
because the supply of model that
make up the bulk of production-such
as table radios, table model radio
combinations and radio consoles-
"is in approximate balance with de-
Other items freed on the ground
that the supply about equals demand

heaters, non-automatic toasters, irons,
hot plates, electric heating pads and
electric shavers.
Library Study Halls

Churchill Hits
Stalin. Estimate
As Incomplete
Suggests InVestigation
Of Red Army Strength
LONDON, Oct. 20-(P)-Winston
Churchill, singled out by Prime Min-
ister Stalin as a war "instigator,"
questioned today whether Stalin had
disclosed fully the extent of Russian
military might in occupied Europe,
and suggested that the United Na-
tions clear up the matter.
"Nothing sweeps away suspicions
like facts and I consider it my duty
to continue to press for facts,"
Churchill said in a statement reply-
ing to Stalin's new declaration on in-
ternational affairs. He also called
for a full report on "all military
forces that may cause concern" to
any of the war-victorious nations.
Divisions NotedI
Britain's war time leader, who had
intimated in the House of Commons
last week that Russia had 200 di-
visions under arms in occupied Eu-
rope, took note of Stalin's statement
yesterday that the correct figure was
only 60 divisions.
"Even 60 divisions on a war foot-
ing would, of course, greatly exceed
the British and American forces in
enemy-occupied territory," Church-
ill said in a statement.
Stalin's declaration, meanwhile,
evoked mixed reaction around the
world. Lincoln White, U. S. Depart-
ment press officer, said in Washing-
ton the Russian Prime Minister
"echoed" statements made previous-
ly by Secretary of State James F.
Britains Decline Comment
The British government declined
all comment, but there was no ap-
parent disposition in the Foreign
Office to accept Churchill's figures
in preference to those given by Stal-
Some French officials said Stalin's
statements urging international con-
trol of atomic energy and asserting
that there was no increasing tension
between Russia and the United States
were "encouraging." Others, how-
ever, said that Stalin's assertion that
Germany must be granted political
and economic unity conflicted with
his statement that democracy was not
sufficiently advanced in the Reich.

Wage Board
End Is Hinted,
Price Decontrol Plan
Takes Effect Soon
WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 - (P) -
The Administration is considering.
scrapping the Wage Stabilization
Board when the OPA's master price
decontrol program is released, a per-
son close to government planning
said tonight.
The OPA plan is expected to be an-
nounced on or about Friday, Novem-
ber 1, although this is not definite,
and the government's new wage state-
ment is to accompany it, the official
said. To avoid any label of politics,
the decision may be withheld until
after the November 5 election.
Wage controls would be retained in
at least a half-dozen major key in-
dustries in which prices still remained
under ceilings, probably including
coal, this informant said. Other in-
dustries might include steel and au-
tomobiles, where new wage demands
are in the making.

U.S. Charges
Election Curb
In Rumania
WASHINGTON, Oct. 29--VP)-The
United States applying pressure
anew in an area under Russian in-
fluence, sharply accused the Ruman-
ian government today of intimidat-
ing political foes in violation of a
free election pledge.
Similar charges were made by Bri-
tain in a separate note delivered in
The language of the U.S. note to
the Rumanian foreign ministry ap-
peared to approximate at least a hint
that this government may withdraw
diplomatic recognition unless Ru-
mania liberalizes the rules for its
election Nov. 19.
Note Expresses Concern
The text of the note officially ex-
pressing "concern" over the situa-
tion, was made public by the State
It followed by only a few days
publication of a similar exchange be-
tween Secretary of State Byrnes and
Bulgaria, one of Rumania's Balkan
neighbors, over the failure to pro-
vide similar guarantees for an elec-
tion which was held Sunday.
Free Election Assurances
The American note to Rumania
reminded that government of the
assurances it offered in January that
conditions would be provided for a
free election. Those assurances serv-
ed as the basis for Anglo-American
recognition of Rumania.
Specifically, the note to Rumania
contended those assurances have
been violated in these ways:
1. "By various acts of discrimina-,
Lion involvingurestrictions on regis-
trations and by the intimidation of
individuals" in the case of political
parties outside the government elec-
toral bloc.
2. Denial of radio broadcasting
facilities to those political parties
"although they are subjected to con-
stant attack by the bloc parties" over
the government-controlled radio.

Britain Objects
The moments were tense as Vy-
acheslav Molotov, Russian foreign
minister, sought todprevail on the
Assembly to begin discussion of his
new four-point idea immediately.
Great Britain objected that long
spekches tonight would not be de-
sirable and Molotov finally admitted
it was too late to settle the point.
The Assembly then adjourned, at
7:07 p.m. EST, until tomorrow at 11
a.m. EST for continuation of the
general debate. But all the delega-
tions talked excitedly of the Molotov
Molotov called for an accounting
of the forces of Allied Nations sta-
tioned in alien, non-enemy coun-
tries, which could include British sol-
diers in Greece, the Middle East and
Indonesia as well as the American
Molotov also warned the United
Nations that its war-born structure
would collapse if the veto system is
eliminated. He said the campoign
among the small nations against the
veto was aimed definitely at the
Soviet Union.
Specific Plan
Molotov put this specific plan be-
fore the Assembly:
1. In connection with the, aims
and principles of the world organi-
zation, the General Assembly should
accept a universal reduction of ar-
2. This reduction should include
as a primary aim the abolition of
atomic energy in war.
3. The General Assembly should
recommend to the Security Council
that it find ways and means of car-
rying out these objectives.
4. The Assembly should ask all
affiliated governments to help the
United Nations in this undertaking.
This, he declared, would be in the
interest of the people who are car-
rying the heavy burden of armament

Speech Called
NEW YORK, Oct. 29,-(IP)-The
world's diplomats here tonight de-
scribed Soviet Foreign Minister V. M.
Molotov's 68-minute speech to the
United Nations Assembly as "tough,"
"smart," "aggressive," "construc-
tive," and "disappointing."
Warren R. Austin, chief of the
American delegation, declared that
the speech was "smart and tough,"
but he declined to answer at this
time Molotov's charges against the
United States.
L. D. Wilgress, Canadian Ambassa-

"cleverest speech that 'Molotov has
ever made," but added that it was
