THE HOUSE Committee, ac-
cording to Clardy, "intends to
paint a broad picture to show the
people of Michigan just how wide
and deep and effective the Com-
munist Party's work really is."
He said the Detroit hearings
will be available to radio and
television outlets, adding: "there
will be no interference with
publicity and blackouts such as
happened last time when the
House speaker banned radio, tel-
evision and motion pictures."
"I feel the public should know
about the Communists and see
how the committee operates so'
people will know that we are not
witch-hunters as we sometimes are
made out," he added.
Last appearance of the com-
mittee in Detroit was in 1952,
when hundreds of persons were
identified as Communists or

IT CALLED for the plugging of
any prospective gaps in machin-
ery, tools, equipment and power,
and for the "systematic mainte-
nance" of idle plants and machines
which would be needed if an M-
Day comes.
The goal, as summarized by
ODM Director Arthur S. Flem-
ming, is: "An industrial position,
or plans for it, from which we
could move rapidly to maximum-
rates of balanced output of war
and war-supporting goods."
The statement has been expect-
ed for weeks. During the delay, in-
dustry's interest grew because of
the disclosure that Secretary of
Defense Wilson preferred a "nar-
rower" industrial base for military
production than the Truman plans
UNANSWERED yesterday was
the question of how ODM's new
policy declaration squares with
such curtailments as the Air
Force cancellation of contracts for
seven huge hydraulic presses, and
the anounced elimination of Hen-
ry J. Kaiser's Willow Run plant
from the C119 Flying Boxcar
transport program.
The government hopes to rely
mainly on the' normal expansion
of industry to increase the nation's
war potential, ODM said.

City Remains
Quiet over 4th
Ann Arbor police and fire de-
partment officials said the holi-
day weekend was very "quiet" and
reported no serious accidents or
fires to mar the city record.
Firecracker offenders were at a
minimum and injuries were minor
in the city.
Rain held off until late Sunday
afternoon to give Ann Arborites
pleasant weather and a peaceful'
Fourth of July.
County reports however, were
not so pleasant. Two traffic fa-

way deaths running the total
to 29. The pace this year exceeds
one death a week on county

Soapy Cool
To AF Head
LANSING - (P) - Gov. Wil-
hams was non-commitally cool
yesterday to recurrent suggestions
that Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg, re-
tired Air Force chief, might be a
candidate for U.S. senator from
Michigan in 1954.
The most recent discussion was
by Drew Pearson, nationally syn-
dicated political columnist. Pear-
son said that former President
Truman had agreed to discuss
Vadenberg's possible candidacy
with Williams.

U.S. SENATOR Homer Ferguson
(R-Mich.) faces reelection next
Williams, who has been
strongly mentioned as a candi-
date for the post himself, told
a press conference "I am in-
clined to think the Democrats
will have one or more candidates
who will take care of Mr. Fer-
guson quite amlly in 1954. Of-
course, there are some ungra-
cious enough to think Fergu-
son will take care of himself be-
fore that comes about."
The Governor said "I am sure
there are many Democrats and Re-
publicans who agree with Mr. Tru-
man that Hoyt Vandenberg is a
very excellent person, one who has
served his country well and who
has had rather summary shrift
from the present administration."
"I think," Williams said under
further questioning, "that many
would welcome Hoyt Vandenberg
in the Democratic party, but
whether as senator or as secre-
tary of state is another question."
Noting that Vandenberg had
established residence in Colorado
Springs, Colo., a reporter asked
Williams about the political pros-
pects of seeking office in another
state within a year of an election.
The governor said "electability
depends at least in part on the
close connection with a constitu-

for top-level American-South Ko-
rean diplomatic discussions to uni-
fy Korea if the political confer-
ence fails.
HE ADDED that Rhee feels the
proposal is meaningless since U.S.
Senate approval of such a plan is
not definite "and thus not concrete
Earlier there was fresh spec-
ulation as to just how far Rhee
might carry his truce-blocking
There were even unconfirmed re-
ports that when Gen. Maxwell D.
Taylor, the UN field commander,
met Sunday with U.S. advisers to
the South Korean Army they dis-
cussed what to do should Rhee
pull out his 16 divisions from Tay-
lor's command and fight on alone.
The talks were top secret.

A general officer at UN Far
East Command headquarters in
Tokyo said the 78-year-old
South Korean President "is so
fanatic about unifying Korea
before he dies that Rhee is
ready to pull down everything
that we have built if he doesn't
get what he wants." The gen-
eral was not identified.
The report of the new U. S.
compromise offer came from a
South Korean source close to the
current negotiations.
But a U. S. Embassy spokes-
man in Seoul denied such an
offer had been made.
From out along the rain-drench-
ed battle line AP Correspondent
John Randolph said checks with
South Korean fighting men indi-
cated most of them would follow
orders should Rhee decide on go-
ing it alone if a truce was signed
which he opposed.

Bright Peace
Hopes Seen
By Stevenson
ROME - () - Adlai Stevenson,
nearing the end of a world tour,
expressed conviction last night
that there are "brighter prospects
of peace than the war."
The 1952 Democratic presiden-
tial candidate said that as the re-
sult of a basicly correct postwar
foreign policy of "assistance and
persistance . .. it seems to me we
are reaping a harvest from pa-
tience, firmness and sacrifice,"
Smiling and cheerful despite
months of arduous travel in dis-
tant lands, Stevenson, in a news
conference took a verbal slap at
Scn. Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis.
and hinted he would have more
to say on the subject when he
returns to the U. S.
Aides said Stevenson is serious-
ly considering devoting one of his
nation-wide television addresses
back home to McCarthy's influ-
ence on U. S. diplomacy and her
foreign allies.
An Italian reporter asked Stev-
enson his opinion of the Italian
population in his home state of
