two objectives: 1. To drive
the "aggressive influence of

The attempt, by Senator Mc-
Clellan (D.-Ark.), to whack five
per cent off the $2,726,761,473
Marshall Plan for economic aid
for Western Europe was defeated
41 to 38.
AS FINALLY approved, the bill
carries $14,680,000,000 in cash and
spending authority for the Armed
Services. This does not include
about $16,500,000,000 recently re-
quested by President Truman for
military outlays in connection with
the Korean War.
In addition to the regular mil-
itary funds, the bill carried $4,-
590,000,000 in cash and spending
authority for all'foreign aid, in-
cluding $2,726,000,000 for the
European Recovery Program.
The proposed Marshall Plan cut
would have amounted to $136,338,-
A 10 PER CENT slash in a num-
ber of items in the bill was adopted
by the Senate and was the only
major economy operation perform-
ed on the bill during the four
weeks it was before the Senate.
Sponsors of this cut, Senators

amount to $525,000,000. The cut

tee staff showed that the Senate
added $72,389,556 in cash to the

This total then was reduced by
$525,000,000 through the Bridges-
Byrd amendment, to $32,052,362,-

THE SENATE also added $1,-

proved by the Appropriations Com-
mittee in spending authority.

House Junks
Price, Wage
Recess Delays
Economy Curbs
House junked its mandatory price
and wage curbs yesterday and
then quit until Tuesday, with the
Administration's economic control
bill still up in the air.
Gefore adjourning, it began the
job of writing an economic con-
trol measure all over again. The
weekend recess ended legislative
floundering, in which sentiment
was growing for price and wage
controls pegged to the cost of liv-
The House also voted to make
hoarding a prison offense, but
then bogged down in confusion.

ON THE OTHER side of the
capitol, Sen. Sparkman (D.-Ala.)
announced that the Senate Bank-
ing Committee had approved the
idea of giving President Truman
discretionary authority in invoking
wage-price-rationing controls.
He said the Committee re-
jected, 10 to 3, a plan by Sen.
Fulbzright (D.-Ark.) for auto-
matic wage, price rationing con-
trols if prices rise to a certain
point, say 6 per cent above the
level of June 15.
The President has come out
against such mandatory legisla-
tion but has indicated he has no
objection to discretionary author-
IN A DIZZY parliamentary tan-
gle, the House tossed overboard
by a 172 to 161 vote a previously-
approved plan calling for manda-
tory price-wage ceilings if prices
continue to rise.
The scuttled plan would have
provided ceilings to be invoked
when living costs topped the
June 15 level by 5 per cent.
Then it beat down two efforts
to give the President standby po-
wers over prices and wages. The
plans were offered by Rep. Kun-
kel (R.-Pa.) and Deane (D.-N.C.).
Kunkel lost 165 to 130, Deane 151
to 140.
WHEN THE House quit work for
the day ,it was considering still
a n o t h e r wage-price control
amendment tied to the cost-ofliv-
ing index.
This proposal, by Rep. Mc-
Kinnon (D.-Calif.), would give
the President discretionary po-
wer to invoke wage-price ceil-
But if the cost of living rose
5 per cent above the June 15 lev-
el, the controls would become man-
datory and prices and wages would
be rolled back to the June 10-25

Controls Not
Needed Now
-Prof. Ackley
There is no need for price and
wage controls or rationing at this
time if taxes are increased and
expenditures limited, according to
Prof. Gardner Ackley of the eco-
nomics department.
Prof. Ackley, who was an OPA
administrator for five years dur-
ing the World War II period, said

yesterday that Congress is bark-
ing up the wrong tree' in seeking
to prevent inflation from growing
out of the present crisis by im-
posing controls on the economy.
-* * *
preventing inflation is to have
higher taxes and restrict pur-
chases to essential goods, Prof.
Ackley said.
If Congress is going to spend
ten billion dollars to build up
the military machine and yet
only ask for a five billion dol-
lar increase in taxes, some de-
gree of inflation is bound to re-
sult as there will be an extra
five billion dollars with which

Chaotic TV Stage Not Place

television station WNYE in New York.
He spoke yesterday on "Building a Television Program," in the
Summer Speech Conference series.

that television is organized chaos is an understatement. It is a

Successful City Theatre Possible

* * * *


A theatre can be made a suc-
cessful community project, ac-
cording to Dina Rees Evans, direc-
tor of the Cain Park Theatre, in
Cleveland Heights, .
"The Cleveland Heights theatre
proves that it is possible to es-
tablish an excellent theatrical cen-
ter away from New York," she
told the Summer Speech Confer-
ence yesterday.
* * *
MISS EVANS explained that
the magnificently equipped Cain
Park Theatre began in 1934 with
the simple question: "Why not
build a theatre?"
In that year, Miss Evans help-
ed the Cleveland Heights civic
theatre and local high school
students produce "Midsummer
Night's Dream" in an open ra-
vine at one end of an athletic
After the production, the ma-
yor, interested in a community
theatre project, suggested that the
ravine site appeared appropriate
and - with Miss Evans - ini-
tiated the project.
THE MUNICIPAL, outdoor thea-
tre was financed by the city and
built by relief labor in the depres-
sion and was completed in 1938.
The open air plant includes an au-
ditorium seating 3,000, a children's
puppet theatre, rehearsal rooms
consisting of concrete floors and
walls of trees, a concrete-floored
backstage area; and an adminis-
tration building.
Originaly much smaller, the
stage area now measures 82 feet
"Whenever we needed more
space, the city poured another
concrete block, and the stage
grew," Miss Evans said.
THE ORIGINAL staff of four,
now numbers 100 paid workers,
including administration, direc-
tors, designers and stage crew.
To meet the minimum require-
ments, the crew includes one
union member who operates the
lights, but the rest consists of pro-
fessors and student apprentices
from high school and college thea-
"The purpose of our municipal
theatre is to provide entertain-
ment for the community at a
low cost, and, more important,
to provide an outlet for civic
talent," Miss Evans said.
She explained that the Cleve-
land Heights city council sub-
sidized the project for the first
five years, but since then the thea-
tre has been self-sufficient, op-
Air Fair Will
Open Friday
The third International Air Fair,
sponsored by the Aero Club of Mi-
chigan will open next Friday at
the Wayne County Airport.
Last year's traffic jam which
kept thousands from entering the
field should be alleviated this
year. State police, sheriffs' offices
and traffic experts have been at
work, widening highways and
planning traffic routes to avoid
possible conjestion.
THE WORLD champion acroba-
batic fliers, both for the men and
women, will perform their cargo of
daredevil tricks; the Army's jet
pilots will demonstrate strafing
and bombing techniques; and one
hardy airomaniac will stand aloft
on the wing of a plane as it dips
and loops over the field.
The big show will start at 2
daily, and end at 6 p.m.

reporters after the session there is

Malik's tactics. The former Ver-

The pending business at the
start of yesterday's meeting was
an American resolution for the
Council to condemn the North
Koreans in defying a cease-fire,
and to call upon all nations to
boycott them.
Malik's resolution would counter
the U.S. proposal.
Malik said the Soviet Union re-
gards the question of inviting rep-
resentatives of the Korean people
as a matter of substance rather
than procedure, which allows them
the use of their veto power. There
can be no veto of procedural mat-
This is a way the Russians have
of insisting on the right to use
their veto, which they have done
43 times since the UN was found-

implication in Western delegations
was that he would use the veto to
bar hearing anyone if the Com-
munist North Koreans were not
invited to the Council table.
MALIK TOLD the Council: "The
issue is: will the Council take up

and adopt measures for the peace-
ful settlement of the Korean con-
flict or will military action in
Korea continue as a result of Se-
curity Council acts of commission
or omission?"
Warren K. Austin, United
States delegate, countered, im-
mediately with an accusation
that Malik as usual was con-
fronting the Council with "some
deviation, some novelty." He
demanded that Malik get on
with business and put first
things first-to begin considera-
tion of the American resolution
intended to confine the conflict
to Korea.
