Move To Oust Moody
From Committee Hinted
WASHINGTON-(P)-A Republican move to squeeze Sen. Moody
(D-Mich.) off the key Senate Banking Committee, in the event a
special session of congress is called, came to light yesterday.
The Committee would play a major role if President Truman
calls the mid-campaign session of congress he says he is considering
to deal with, a threat of mounting prices. If he does so, he said, he
would ask it primarily for a toucher wage-price control law.
MOODY is one of the few pro-Truman stalwarts on the group,
through which any new economic controls bill would have to pass.
Sen. Flanders (R-Vt.) con-

SEOUL, Sunday, Aug. 10-(A')-
The Korean war raged with new

U.N.' and Red troops clashed

points on the 155-mile battle-

CAIRO, Egypt-(,)-Maj. Gen.
Mohammed Naguib, commander-
in-chief of the Egyptian armed
forces and leader of the coup that
ousted former King Farouk, said
last night he has no faith in dic-
"I will not seek the creation of
any sort of dictatorship in Egypt,"
Naguib said.
NAGUIB was answering the
question at an interview as to
whether he believes dictatorship
might be necessary to enforce a
purge of corrupt elements in Egyp-
tian political parties and to solve
the difficulties now confronting

The General expressed dis-
satisfaction with the parties re-
ported purging themselves of
corrupt elements. He 'described
their procedure as a sham and

firmed reports that the Repub-
licans in their effort to dislodge
Moody will use the same argu-
ments which installed the Mich-
igan senator as a member of
the committee in the first place.
Democratic Governor G. Men-
nen Williams appointed Moody to
the Senate last year to succeed the
late Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg,
a Republican. That gave the
Democrats a three-voteSenate
majority-50 to 46. It also forced
a shakeup of Senate committee
assignments which knocked Sen.
Bennett (R-Utah) off the Banking
Committee to make way for
Moody. The Democrats argued
successfully at the time that a
one-votebigger majority entitled
them to the committee seat.
Republican Gov. John Lodge of
Connecticutt has delayed appoint-
ing a successor to Sen. Brien Mc-
Mahon, a Democrat and adminis-
tration supporter who died last
month. But Lodge almost cer-
tainly would appoint a Republi-

lesser committee assignment if
this occurred.
Arnall Submits

Truman but whether it will be ac-

the price outlook, it was learned
last night.
Arnall, who has headed the Of-

since February, carried his resig-
nation with him when he called on
the President last Wednesday.
Both Truman and Arnall de-
clined subsequent comment on
the resignation.

is reluctant to see Arnall leave and
have predicted he would make a
strong effort to keep Arnall on the

Stevenson, Ike
Views Described
Filibuster Curbs, Enlarged Social
Security Program, Benefits Hinted
By The Associated Press
Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson was represented last night as likely to
use his influence, if elected President, to curb Senate filibusters and
then try to find some way to bar actual discrimination in hiring.
His Republican Presidential opponent, Dwight D. Eisenhower,
came out for a broadened social security program and an increase
in benefits to the old folks.

Alger Picks
Three Men

LANSING - () - The Republi-
cans face a largely cut and dried
state convention next week while
the Democrats could expect some-
thing of a hassle.
Both parties hold sessions next
Saturday to nominate candidates
for state office. The Republicans
will meet in Grand Rapids and the
Democrats in Lansing.
M. Alger Jr., who last Tuesday eas-
ily won the party's nomination for
Governor in the primary election,
has come out flatly for three can-
didates for the four available nom-
These are State Chairman
Owen J. Cleary to follow Alger
Into the Secretary of State's
chair, and State Treasurer D.
Hale Brake and Attorney Gen-
eral Frank G. Millard to succeed
These endorsements from the
man now In unquestioned com-
mand of the party were considered
tantamount to nomination.
THERE IS A chance, however,
for a fight over the nomination
for auditor general.
Alger is taking a "hands off"
attitude, telling Auditor Gener-
al John B. Martin Jr. he will
neither oppose nor endorse him
for renomination,
There was reportedly a move to
seek the Auditor General nomina-
tion for Arthur Bruno of Han-
cock, president of the Upper Pen-
insula Republican Association.
This was an attempt to return to
the old tradition of having one
candidate on the ticket from the
upper peninsula.
BOTH PARTIES will be called
on to nominate a candidate to run
on a non-partisan ballot to suc-

tice, Walter H. North,

mitteeman who was elected na-
tional chairman of the party
last month, will give the keynote
At the same time the Democrats
will be meeting in Lansing to name
their nominees for the same offi-
ces, but with a lot less guidance
from the top man.
Governor Williams has not en-
dorsed any of a number of aspir-
ants for nominations. There is
doubt that he will ever do so,
preferring, his aides say, to let
the delegates make up their own

with the Governor since his nom.
ination have gained.
If it is borne out, and the
source was in a position to know
Stevenson's views, such a stand
seemed likely to touch off new
friction in the South, whose
leaders by and large have ndl
cated so far they are more
pleased with Stevenson than
they were with Truman four
years ago.
The Springfield source also de-
scribed Stevenson as feeling that
he could make a substantial re-
duction in the federal budget
