To Save Material
WASHINGTON - (IP) - By a
sweeping ban on all amusement
construction, the government mov-
ed anew yesterday to flatten the
building boom and save materials
The National Production Au-
thority forbade, as of midnight last
night, the start of new theatres,
night clubs, race tracks, exhibi-
tions, golf courses, ball parks, sum-
mer camps and ski lodges, pool
halls and football stadiums.
* * *
FORTY-FOUR types of con-
struction were expressly outlaw-
ed. But the ban applies generally
to any structure designed for
"amusement, recreational or en-
At the same time, NPA issued
a compulsory allocation order
requiring the steel industry to
ship 310,000 tons of steel month-
ly to car builders to provide up-
wards of 10,000 new freight cars
Federal, state and city recrea-
tion projects, as well as private
builders, were barred. Violators
face fines or imprisonment, or
A WARNING of further tough-
ness to come was issued by NPA
administrator William H. Harri-
son. In a statement he said:
"It will be the policy of NPA
to further limit or prohibit con-
struction of additional types of
projects which do not further
the defense effort or increase
the nation's productite capacity.
This will be done, Harrison said,
whenever national defense needs
or materials shortages require it.
Persons who start non-essential
buildings-even types not yet bar-
red-may be forced to halt the
work by federal edict.
THE BAN was expected to bring
a rush of protests from the build-
ing industry. Constructin and real-
ty leaders protested strongly when
Harrison proposed it last week.
The industry then asked the
right to regulate its own use
of materials. Spokesmen said
vast quantities will be saved by
the strict credit contrls already
imposed on home construction,
and by credit curbs still to come
in the financing of new stores
and office buildings.
The builders forecast that cre-
dit control would cut home con-
construction to 600,000 or 400,000
starts next year, as against an es-
timated 1,300,000 in 1950.

the adrenal cortex, their structure
and biological effects."

Pace Tells Plan for Demobilization;
Air Force To Halt All Reserve Calls
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-Secretary Pace said yesterday the Army hopes
to start releasing mobilized National Guardsmen and Reservists next
summer in a program which may be completed before early 1952.
Pace indicated that more American troops may begin to flow to
Europe soon, but he said the Army does not now plan to send any
National Guard units overseas.

ed the policy of calling reservists

NEW DELHI, India -(R)- A
Communist Chinese "liberation"
army has crossed a disputed fron-
tier zone and knifed into Tibet,
dispatches from Calcutta and var-
ious Communist capitals declared
Though some military authori-
ties have expressed skepticism
about a Chinese invasion of Tibet
at this time because of wintry
conditions setting in across the
Tibetan highlands, the Calcutta
newspaper Statesman said a Chin-
ese vanguard was reliably report-
ed well inside Tibet, only a day's
march from Neiwutsi (Riwoche)
and about 350 miles northwest of
Lhasa, the capital.
* * *
THE DETAILS, contained in a
dispatch from the Statesman's
correspondent at the northern In-
dian city of Kalimpong, indicated
the vanguard was perhaps 100
miles west of the ill-defined
border between China's Sikiang
province and Tibet.
The government of India tele-
graphed its ambassador in Pei-
ping for full information - and
in the meantime sat tight.
"We cannot act on mere news-
paper reports," an Indian Foreign
Ministry spokesman said.
A TIBETAN delegation left New
Delhi only Wednesday for Peiping
for negotiations after weeks of
talks here with Chinese authori-
ties on Red aims in Tibet, which
has been nominally free from
China for 36 years.
The Calcutta Statesman's ac-
count said broadcasts from Lha-
sa, the seat of the 15-year-old
Dalai Lama who is Tibet's spirit-
ual ruler, declared the Tibetans
were determined to fight.
Officials there were described
as shocked and dismayed. The
possibility was raised that the Dal-
a-Lama and other high officials,
of the land, often called "the top
of the world," would flee Lhasa
if resistance crumbled. By the

ITS IMMEDIATE aim is to have
