Gen. Omar Bradley, Chairman

confidently of the Allies fighting

North Korean Premier Kim II

Hatcher commented that "his rich

which first caused the University

of service here. All who have work-

gress, highlighted by the election
of Student Legislature president
Len Wilcox, '52, as chairman of
the national executive committee.
Wilcox also won the position of
chairman of the Michigan region,
while Phil Berry, '52, was elected
student government chairman and
Joe Sabin, '53, chairman of stu-
dent affairs for the region.
Delegates representing 670,000
college students emerged from
the week of meetings with plans
for reorganizing the structure
of the congress itself and resolu-
tions aimed at qualifying theiz
rights as students. Many nation-
al questions directly concerning
the delegates as students were
also discussed.
One of the most important re-
organizational measures taken was
to centralize full authority of the
NSA in the president. This will
be the first time since the congress
was organized in 1947 that the
president has been held personally
responsible for the work. Another
vice-presidential post was also, es-
tablished and a national interim
committee set up to determine
policy between meetings of the
national executive committee.

ate Banking Committee yesterday
recommended passage of a modi-

quotas on livestock slaughtering.

it approved the measure because
quotas were necessary to hold
meat prices. It urged "courageous
enforcement" to stop what it
termed black market meat opera-
The proposed bill, the committee
added, would eliminate the main
congressional objection to quotas
by prohibiting the Office of Price
Stabilization from using them to
limit total marketings.
President Truman and OPS of-

LIVRPOOL -(A)-- Winston
Churchill yesterday guardedly
promised to revive Britain's war-
time coalition government in order
to fight through world dangers
and economic crises if his conserv-
atives win the national election
Oct. 25.
Greeted by a tumultuous ovation
from thousands who threw flowers
and raised his old "V for Victory"
sign, the 76-year-old Churchill
clearly indicated in his first elec-
tion speech that he wants to head
a "broadly based" cabinet of Con-
servatives. Socialists and Liberals.
"This will be no vindictive tri-
umph for Tories over Socialists,"
he pledged, "no dull exdusion of
Liberal and Independent forces,
but rather a period of healing and

ment with the power to carry
on a tolerant, non-partisan.
non-doctrinaire system of policy
for a considerable time.
"I ask for a substantial and solid
majority to bring an end to this
period of unavoidable but mis-
chievous party strife, to let the
nation get on with its work with
the least political interference and
to promote the greatest measure
of agreement among ourselves."

rally of ,000 in Liverpool Stadium
caught the British people by sur-
prise. There has not been the least
hint that Prime Minister Attlee's
Labor Party would react with fav-

under Conservative leadership.
Churchill spoke only a few
hours after Aneurin Bevan, a
left-wing rebel in the Labor
party, had thrown a chill into
the Attlee leadership by cap-

Clears Jessip
Of Disloyalty
WASHINGTON - (A2) - Chair-
man Hiram Bingham of the Civil
Service Loyalty Review Board dis-
closed yesterday that the board
has found "no reasonable doubt"
as to. the loyalty of Anbassador-
at-large Philip C. Jessup.
At the same time, however, he
denied a statement by Senator
McCarthy (R-Wis.) that Bingham
had told him that if the loyalty
board had had the authority "to
turn him down as a bad security
risk, it would have done so."

BINGHAM, advised of McCar-
thy's statement, denied it flatly.
"I never told him tMcCarthy)
any such thing," Bingham told a
He said he had had "no com-'
munication with Senator Mc-
Carthy since a panel of the
board took up the Jessup case."
Furthermore, he said, he never

such fashion.

pressed any opinion of his own on

WASHINGTON-4(P)-The gov-
ernmentryesterday virtually sus-
pended trade between the United
States and Communist Czechoslo_
The Treasury and State Depart-
ments invoked technicalities which
experts predicted would block
about 90 per cent of Czech imports
to this country.
* , * ,
THIS WAS the latest in a series
of steps whittling down commer-
cial relations between the two
countries as political differences
Exports controls already have
cut American exports to Czecho-
slovakia below 20 per cent of
normal - less than $100,000
Yesterday's move will cost the
Prague government about $2,160,-
000 a month of the dollars it has
been trying to earn through for-
eign trade.
THE STATE Department an-
nounced it would suspend the
granting of required invoices for
Czech imports. The Treasury said
it would tighten its vigilance to
prevent the entry of Czech goods
without the invoices.
In announcing this move,
neither department mentioned
the case of William N. Oatis,
imprisoned Associated Press cor-
But his conviction on what

the State Department has called
trumped up espionage charges has
climaxed steadily deteriorating
Washington-Prague relations. Con-
gress demanded suspension of all
trade in a resolution. President
Truman said Oatis' release would
be a good way of starting to im-
prove relations.
* * *
EARLIER yesterday Truman or-
dered the cancellation on Nov. 1
of all trade concessions granted to
Czechoslovakia. This followed a
Congressional directive to elimin-
ate special tariff rates and other
privileges for all Communist areas.
This has been done for Bul-
garia, Romania and 13 other
Red-controlled states. Notice of
impending cancellation has gone
to Russia, Poland and Hungary.
In Czechoslovakia's case, the
suspension of trade concessions
would be secondary to the new
State-Treasury move. But it would
mean higher prices for the 10 per'
cent or so of Czech imports not
affected by invoice restrictions.
Here's how the State-Treasury
"squeeze" will work:
Czech goods shipped to the Unit-
ed States need certified invoices
from the U.S. embassy at Prague.
This is normally a routine step.
But yesterday the State Depart-,
ment said that issuance of the
invoices by the Prague embassy
I "is being definitely delayed."

$'7.5 Billion
To Be Spent
In One Year
Action Sets Up
ate yesterday abolished the Eco-
nomic Cooperation Administration
in a measure which calls for a
vast one-year outlay of $7,483,-
400,000 in foreign military and
economic aid.
Passed by a 56 to 21 vote, the
bill sets up a new Mutual Secur-
ity Agency whose $22,000-a-year
director, under the President,
would have full power to settle
disputes arising between various
agencies handling the money.

CHAIRMAN Connally (D-Tex.)
of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee said the money, which
raises the Senate's earlier foreign
aid figure by $197,150,000, will
meet the needs of Gen. Dwight D.
Eisenhower in building up a Euro-
pean defense force to guard
against Soviet aggression.
The Administration, through
Secretary of State Acheson, was
served notice that the money is
only the first installment of a
three-year program estimated to
cost American taxpayers around
The bill gives the White House
the final authority t coordinate

to beneficiary countries.

ficlairF countries, and the State
Department would administer the
program for aid to underdevelo-
ed areas.
and divided administration were
put in as a response to Republi-
can complaints that the State De-
partment was attempting to hold
sway over the military on the arms
phases of the program.
Thirty-seven Democrats and 19
Republicans voted for the bill on
final passage. Three Democrats
and 18 Republicans voted no.
As the next step, the House is
expected to act on the bill today.
Then it goes to the White House
for President Truman's signature.
The Senate-ap'proved measure
is a compromise recommended by
a Senate-House conference com-
mittee to settle points in conflict
between the separate versions pas-
sed earlier by the two chambers.

Bricker (R-Ohio) yesterday de-
nounced President Truman's
clamp-down on some types of

and the nation's press.
In a speech to the Senate,
Bricker declared: "A free people
