Lehman Says He Will Will Fight to Repeal Subversive Control Bill; Confers with Truman

Lehman visited President Truman at the White House today and told correspondents late that he will fight for repeal or modification of the subversive control bill enacted into law during the week-end, despite the President’s veto and administration objections.
