absolved Panama salesman Jai-
me Icekson and former U.S. Em-
bassy employe Rose Epstein of
a charge of swindling a number
of Panama businessmen out of
over $250,000
At the same time, the Judge
expressed doubt that the facts
of the case are as presented by
the alleged victims.
He said there was a possibility
the alleged swindling was mere-
ly a loan operation, or that the
real reason for the heavy in-
vestments made by the alleged
victims was being hidden.
Icekson and Miss Epstein, who
was tried in absentia, were ac-
cused of receiving almost $300,-
000 from different businessmen
here under the pretext that the
money would be used to import
gold bars from the United
States.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 22 (UP)
President Eisenhower today let a
Christmas Party and pleasant mu-
sings about his new granddaugh-
ter interrupt his work.
The Christmas party is an an-
nual affair he and Mrs. Eisen-
hower give for members of the
White House staff.
There was no advance hint aa
to what gift the first couple would
present to the staff. In the past
the staff members have received
copies of Oil paintings Mr. Eisen-
hower has done of Washington and
Lincoln.
The Christmas party provided an
opportunity for the staff members
to congratulate Mr. Eisenhower on
the birth of his new granddaugh-
ter, Mary Jean.
There was a possibility that
sometime during the day the de-
lighted grandfather would break a
way from the White House for his
second visit to see the baby. He
first saw her yesterday shortly af-
ter her birth.
In the afternoon today the Pres-
ident planned to meet with the
National Security Council to dis-
cuss defense and foreign problems

Get Xmas Gift
4th Grandchild
WASHINGTON, Dec. 22 (UP)
President and Mrs. Eisenhower got
the Christmas gift they wanted
most their fourth grandchild.
Her name: Mary Jean Eisen-
hower.
Born yesterday at 4:58 p.m. at
the Army's Walter Reed Hospital.
Weight; Seven pounds and two
ounces.
She's a blonde.
Her mother, Mrs. Barbara Ei-
senhower, the President's daugh-
ter-in-law, is "doing very well,"
the White House said.
And the president? "Delighted
and happy" like any grandparent,
according to press secretary James
C. Hagerty.
Mary Jean is the President's
third grandaughter. The other
two are Barbara Anne, 8, and Su-
san 3. He has one grandson, David,
7.
The President was in his office
yesterday and when his son, John,
an Army major, telephoned him
the good news from the hospital.
Sometime later he and Mrs. Ei-
senhower drove to the hospital to
congratulate Barbara and take
their first look at the new grand-
child.
After a 55-minute visit, Mrs. Ei-
senhower emerged and told re-
porters the child's name.
Asked the color of the baby's
eyes, Mrs. Eisenhower said laugh

ter the 8tates.

Customs officials are holding
the papers until identification
ing of Congress next month and
possibly delay the trip until spring.
It is expected that Mr. and Mrs.
Eisenhower will return to their
Gettysburg, Pa., farm to spend
New Yea?s Eve.
There was no immediate explan-
ation as to why the President in-
tends to disregard his doctor's
orders for a trip soon to the South.
The White House said yesterday
Mr. Eisenhower probably will re-
sume late next month one of his
most arduous public duties news

Again Seeks
Wage Raise
Local 900, Government and
Civic Employes Organizing Com-
mittee, again sought wage In-
creases for local-rate employes
Tuesday at a meeting with Gov.
Seybold and other Canal offi-
cials.
The conference was a follow-
up to the meeting with Gov.
Seybold last- September when
the union first declared the
need for a local-rate pay boost.
The governor, attending this
week's conference, suggested an-
other meeting during the second
week of January, after which
the union's board of directors
will convene.
Because of the approaching
holiday season and the position
of the board of directors that
an Increase now would be in
conflict with the new U.8.-Pan-
ama treaty, the conference was
viewed as exploratory in weigh-
ing the validity of the union'
requests.
The conference Included a dis-
cussion of the soundness of the
union's-contention that a cost-
of-llving increase for local-rat-
ers 1$ long overdue because they
have received no general wage
hike since October 1953.
The union argued that several
months ago. Congress legislated
a cost-of-llvtoe Increase for fed-
eral workers, including U.S.-rat-
ers. It was only logical, the un-
ion contended, for local-rate
workers to assume that they too

BERLIN, Dec. 22 (UP) East German Communists
today expressed their determination to try Western Allied

""*.. isn't the Housing Office at Albrook getting Just a little bit
ridiculous? We have been sitting here in Coco Slito well over
Isix months during which time we moved from well over a hun-
ored en .he housing list to below' 80. Under the new system
we are again well over a hundred.
Now they are selecting a few families to move to Pedro
fuel. Some of those chosen have only been here a short while.
Talk aoout rubbing It In! When we arrived here we were

that my husband is an NCO, we were not allowed to live in the
Republic although airmen of the lower four grades were given
this privilege.

ERRATIC ELECTRONICS
The people on the Atlantic side have not been told the elec-
tronic truth about TV on the Isthmus.
TV air waves are carried on the prevailing winds. The wind
on the Atlantic side, especially during the dry season, blows con.
tinuously out Of the Northeast. That means that the wind comes
In over Colon ana Margarita and blows toward Ft. Davis. The
TV transmitting tower will be at Ft. Davis, consequently no
waves can get to Colon, Margarita or Coco Slito, and as a re-
sult there win be no TV reception in those areas. Oatun and
pTt. Gullck are ideally located.
The only solution for Colon I can see. is to erect a trans-
mitting tower In the vicinity of the Cristobal breakwater. This
would be ideal to catch the wind waves.

"The big fellows have just
merged into one federation. They
talked me down, saying that unity

strength. I'm communicating with
Meany and Walter Reuther and

Down To The Sea
By BOB RUARK
AT SEA. Aboard M. V. Aus
trallaSometimes I think that the
people who go to sea are not
worthy of the privilege barring
the crew, who generally seem to
treasure their work over any land-
bound chores.
I was born by the sea, raised
on the ses, went to war on the
sea, and I come from a long, if
undistinguished, line of seafarers.
So perhaps I am unduly impressed
by the loneliness of a lovely ship
alone on an endless sweep of un-
dulant water which may be two
or three miles deep. It is im-
rssible to be bored at sea, and
can think of no greater privi-
lege than a month's voyage on a
fine ship.

think, time to drink, if you like

the Republican party, how led by
Senator Knowland, that it would
be extremely difficult to run Ei-
senhower at the age of M again.
K has also deepened their sus-
picion that Deweyites around the
White House are stalling for time
not necessarily to run Ike again
i.10 *room "if own candidate.
The blunt inescapable facts,
when drilled down to bedrock, are
that the load of the presidency
is a crushing one even under the
?if .oi conditions; second, that
Ike himself showed every sign of
not wanting to run again before
his heart-attack: third, that he has
actually done little since the at-
tack, compared with what he
would have to do if he ran for
President again.
Under these circumstances,
grumble GOP lesders of the
Knowland-Taft camp, why should
the party not proceed to warm up
a few pitchers on the side-lines
instead of waiting unUI the last
minute to put a cold rookie to the
Republican box.
Newsmen who have covered the
President both at Denver and
Gettysburg know that he has been
subjected to very little strain. And
he shouldn't have been. At Denver
he was positively bored with in-
activity. It now develops that he
was informed on few problems.
And that Cabinet members who
went to see him did not even dis-
cuss such matters as the walk-out
of the. French from the United
Nations or the basic problems of
the Geneva foreign ministers con-
ference.
While there have been two Cab-
inet and security council meet-
ings since the President came
East, the schedule sside from this
had been light to the point that
one -old friend who was a house
guest at Gettysburg found Ike
restless and a bit irritable.
All this is nstural. In fact it's
necessary and inevitable. It's also
natural that a man who suffers
si "scute" heart attack at the
age of 65 must go through a long
Seriod of convalescence, snd that
r. Snvder when he reported
"fatigue' obviously was telling
the truth.
The people who may not have
been telling the truth, however,
suggest some of the Knowland
leaders, are those who have been
making it appear that Ike is hunt-
ing, fooling around with tractors,
driving ponies and has almost re-
sumed the active routine' of the
terrific job of being President of
the United States.
It's this Madison Avenue "all-
is-normal" propaganda by the
palace guard that really Jrks
GOP old-guarders, plus tne fact
that chairman Len Hall had a
much more important conference
with Tom Dewey as to whether
Ike was going to run again than
be did with Ike himself.
The Job of being President of
the United States can't be done
with the left hand, points out one
resentful wing of the GOP, and
those Republicans who criticized
the Democrats for letting the na-
tion drift downhill during the ill-
ness of Woodrow Wilson should be
the first to recognize it.
DISAPPEARING ORE
Democratic leaders intend to
demand the resignation of Doug-
las McKay as secretary of the
interior when Congress recon-
venes.
They will base this on a give-
away of 300 acres of douglas fir
and sugar pine to the Rogue River
National Forest in Oregon which
McKay's colleague, Secretary of
Agriculture Benson, did not want
to dispose of.
They will also base it on the fact
that the ore ssmples which were
the basis of McKay's sale were
dumped into the Rogue River.

of the interior, had refused to sell

ples from the State Department of
Geology Office and destroyed
them."
"How were they destroyed?"
asked committee counsel Robert
W. Redwine.
"They were shaken from the
envelopes and dumped into the
river,'' replied Appling,
"Did you have to go very far
to dump these things in the
river?" asked Rep. Chudoff, Dem-
ocrat of Pennsylvania.
"About two blocks," replied
Appling.
"Could you not have thrown
them in the waste basket?" Chud-
off persisted. ,,,._
"I suppose we could," said* Ap-
pling.
"It was very unusual to throw
things like that in the river,
wasn't it?" demanded Chudoff.
"That is right," mumbled Ap-
P "That is all," said Chudoff.

BY MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE
DURING a recent, severe ill-
ness of my reader's five-year-old
grandson, bis mother slept on a
cot in his bedroom. Now that he's
recovering, he wants the arrange-
ment continued.
His mother insists on maintain-
ing it; his father says it's "spoil-
ing" him and wants it terminated
St once. His grandmother thinks
ere must be some compromise
solution.
So do I.
Let's try giving this special
sleeping arrangement the most
relaxed and cheerful in diligence
we can for the next few nights.
(Up to now it's Just had anxiety
and resentment.) At the same
time, let's put a time limit on it.
Our young convalescent may
seem to be dismayed to learn that
we intend shortly to resume our
normal sleeping habits. He won't
really be. Actually, he'll be com-
forted by our placid suggestion
that the time for sick room
arrangement i salmost over.
IN his own way, he's as anxious
to becore his own independent self
again as we are to see it restored
to1 him.
Were he faced with the prospect
of accepting us as his permanent
roommate, he wouldn't relish it
one bit. The trouble is, mothers
worn by worry, nights of nursing,
the burden of the sick child's
helplessness don't see this readily.
The memory of his weakness is
still so vivid that they find it hard
to increase then* demand! upon
his returning strength..
If this young-mother will begin
to accept a normal state for her
reguperating youngster, he'll beg-
in to accept the idea of sleeping
arrangements to match it. He'll
tell her himself that he wants her
to get out of his room. He may try
to be polite about it; he may just
say, "Go on back to your own
room now." It doesn't matter.
What counts are his acknowledg-
ment of regained self-possesion
and his demad for return to pre-
illness independence.
AS to "spoiling" him by com-
promising with his convalescent
position between illness and full
strength, let me quote noted psy-
chiatrist Dr. Lawson G. Lowrey
on "spoiled" youngsters. He writes.
"Nine-tenths of the children that
I see who are called 'spoiled' are
not 'spoiled' at all. They are the
most neglected emotionally; the
most severely rejected on the
emotional side that you can ima-
gine."
We do not spoil children by serv-
ing their needs with discernment
and love. Right now, my reader's
little grandson seems to have two

Thus far, in our series on the
play of trump contracts, we have
considered each hand from the
point of viewnf the declarer. It's
time we considered the defenders.
If tyou are the opening leader,
and the bidding makes it apparent
that declarer plans to ruff some
suit in the dummy, you should con-
sider a trump opening lead. Each
trump that you lead may reduce
dummy's ruffing power. You would
avoid leading a trump, however,
if the bidding warned you that
dummy would turn up with a long
solid suit, for then it would be
vital to grab tricks as quickly as
Sossible before giving up control
declarer.
In today's hand, West has noth-
ing to fear in the way of a long
suit in the dummy. North's denial
of spades and raise of hearts,
however, warn West that South
may well want to ruff spades in
the dummy. Hence West should
open a trump.
South wins the firstt rick with
the king of hearts, takes the ace
of spades, and gives up a spade.
West thereupon leads a second
trump.
South wins again, and ruffs a
spade in dummy. He now tries
to get to his hand by leading a
diamond to the queen, but West
wins with the ace of diamonds
and leads a third trump.
The third trump wrecks South's
chances. He is limited to one spade
ruff in the dummy, so that he must
lose a second spade trick.
Now see what happens if West
begins the hand by leading the
"safe" king of clubs. West wins
the trick and then shifts to a
trump. It is too late.
South wins the trump, takes the
ace of spades and gives up
a spade. South wins the trump
return, ruffs a spade in the dum-
my, gets back to his hand by
ruffing a club, and ruffs another
spade in dummy. The second
spade ruff cannot be stopped.
South must knock out the ace
of diamonds at once, but then
nothing can stop him from drawing
the last trump and cashing the
last spade and a diamond trick.
South loses only one spade trick
and therefore makes his game
contract.
Pet Birds Need
Fruits, Vegetables
URBANA, DI. (UP) To
keep the pep in your parakeet and
the warble in your canary, sup-
plement their seed foods with
green vegetables and fruits and
keep them out of drafts, says a
University of Illinois veterinarian,
L. E. Hanson.
Respiratory diseases caused by
drafts and cold temperatures are
by far .the commonest ailment of
pet birds, Hanson said. Symptoms
of these diseases are a huddled,
depressed appearance, ruffled
feathers and gasping. When the
sumptoms appear, place the bird
in a draft-free room with a tem-
perature of 80 to 85 degrees.
Continued sickness may indicate
psittacosis, a virus pneumonia
which can be transmitted to hu-
man beings, Hanson said.
Avoid handling birds with indi-
cations of psittacosis. Mild cases
may respond to antibiotics, but if
the disease is advanced, the bird
should be destroyed.

an Anti-Malaria Campaign Should

NEW DELHI UP) India's
Ati-malaria campaign should root
>ut the country' most common
disease in another five years.
By 180 nearly 200,000,000 people
will be freed from this scourge.
The campaign, wiiich has been
mounted for the past two years,
has protected 75,000.000 people in
28 states. These arc the areas most
affected by malaria. For these
tales as many as 162 units have
been stationed under the national
malaria control program. But ow-
Xo supplv difficulties only 119
1o supply difficulties only 119
are functioning.
J requirements of the cam-
paign in terms of money, insecti-
les and equipment are stupen-
dous.
When all the 200 units one
unit proic:ts 1,000,000 people are
n operation, more than 40,000 tons
of DDT will have to be imported.
The United States is expected to
supply the bulk of this quantity
under her nid program.
The DDT factory in ludia is ex-
pertcd to produce 700 tons of tech
Bical DDT.
According to estimates of the
health ministry, the campaign
would cost about $62,651.8*0 The
states' contribution to this amour.t
would be about half that. Discus-
sions are being held with the plan-

nine commission on this allotment,
and indications are that the com-
mission will cut these estimates.
In terms of equipment 14.400 stir-
rup pumps, 7,200 hand pumps, 200
power sprayers and 1,000 vehicles
will be required.
Malaria has not appeared in
many of the states where the cam-
paign has been in progress. In Bi-
har, parts of Uttar Predesh, West
Bengal and Madras, endemic ma-
laria has disappeared.
Spraying with DDT is the usual
method and over 15,000,000 houses
have been dealt with. In endemic
areas, spraying is repeated a sec-
ond time.
Delhi, for instance, has been j
completely rid of malaria. As
against the incidence of 120 per
1,000 a few years .back, malaria
cases have now dropped to 0.1S per
1,000.
During the second five-year plan,
the planners hope to bring urban
areas into the campaign which so
far hss been essentially rural.
The curative aspect of the dn
ease will also be the responsibii.ty

arics will go around villages and

young dancer. Tova, and a beaut
ful hula girl. Menu. They ere
married. Manu her real name
Is Gloria Kanemwra, but Manu,
which means "bird," Is her Ha-

The words Dr. McFarland used
in talking to a group of business-
men are Just as applicable to the
woman who wants to make a
happy home for her husband and
children.
It iant enough for a homemaker
to do her Job efficiently. If abe
wants to provide a happy home
life for her family ske has to do
her Job in such a way that "she
puts a light in the faces" of those
she is working for.
The mother who "does every-
thing for her children" and never
lets them forget it for a minute
doesn't put a happy light in their
faces. She is too intent on trying
to make her children feel frateful
to make them feel happy.
The housekeeper who excels at
her Job can, a tthe same time,
mak her family miserable instead
of comfortable if she is more con-
cerned about her house than the
family who lives in ft.
The wife whose talk is mostly of
problems, who has neves learned
to have the light touch, who rarely
sees the funny side of a predica-
ment, and who thinks nagging is
the only way to get things done
may work hard at her Job but ahe
doesn't stand much chance i
making her husband happy-
It takes love and laughter and
respect for the feelings of others
and real Joy in liivng for' a house-

Churchless Group
Finds Church That
Lacks Congregation
PrrTSBURGH - the story of a congregation with-
out a church and a church'without
a congregation and how they got
together.
The congregation is msde up of
people who live in the small mining
town of Forbes Road, some 30
miles from here. They lost their
church building three years ago
when a court ruled their deed in-
valid.
Since then, the worshippers hsve
been meeting in a bleak concrete
recreation building.
"With a barber shop in one end
and a coal-burning cooking stove
for heat, you can imagine what
kind of a place it is," said the Rev.
Clyde Cottom.
There were no brighter prospects
until this past summer, when a
member of the congregation heard
of an unusual offer concerning a
quaint little church in suburban
Pittsburgh which had been vacated
because the membership out-
grew it.
The church was owned by a
Pittsburgh stock broker, Philip
Wolfers, who bought the white,
steepled structure "Just for the
heck of it."
Wolfers ran a newspaper ad of-
fering to sell the church at a bar-
gain to some deserving group. He
received more than 100 inquiries
in all, one from the Forbes Roud
Union Church.
Rev. Cottom told Wolfers that
his congregation needed the church
badly but that Forbes Road
wasn't flourishing at the moment
and maybe the price would be too
high.
"We prayed we would be the
ones to get it," the minister said.
They did. In fact, Wolfers even
found a contractor who was willing
to haul the dismantled church to
Forbes Road on credit. The congre-
gation is confident it can meet
expenses.
"We don't have much money, but
we have a lot of faith," said Rev.
Cottom.
We are pleased to announce that we haM
been appointed SERVEL REFRIGERATE

Credit Plan Boosts
Private School Use
NEW YORK (UP)- More stu-
dents are going to private schools
today because they can get an edu-
cation on easy credit, according to
a banking executive.
Privately controlled elementary
and secondary schools showed an
enrollment increase of more than
725,000 students over last year, said
Rudolf Neuburger, president of
The Tuition Plan, which handles
pay-as-you-go financing of school
tuitions and other fees. Total na-
tional enrollment for the so-called
exclusive schools, he added, was
4,690,000.
A significant portion of the
increase in priVate* school enroll-
ment, Neuburger said, can be
attributed to wider use of time
financing in paying school tuitions
and other fees. Total costs at a pri-
vate preparatory school may run
as high as $2,000 a year, he added,
although most run well below this
figure and many schools offer
scholsrships which trim the ex-
penses grestly.

Unrecognizable After
Jacksonville Crash
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 22
(UP) Eastern Airlines today
asked the families of 17 persons
killed in the crash of a Miami-
New York constellation yesterday
not to come to Jacksonville be-
cause there was little possibility
of Identifying more than three of
the charred Dodies.
The four-engine plane caught
fire yesterday and plunged into a
pine thicket on the outskirts of the
city while making a routine in-
strument landing.
The plane's baffling death dive
less than s mile from Jackson-
ville Municipal Airport ended
what the ajrline's President Thom-
aa A. Armstrong called "one of
the greatest safety records in the
history of aviation.
Until the Miami to New York
constellation became a pyre for
eight women and nine men East-
ern Airlines had had only two fat-
alities in 15 billion passenger
miles of travel since Nov. 1, 1949,
when one of its big planes was
rammed by a fighter plane at
Washington. D. C, killing 55.
Three teams of investigators
hoped to find among the scat,ter-
ed chunks of metal enough evi
dence to explain why the constel-
lation came in to< tow on an oth-
erwise normal Instrument landing.

Ragpicker Dies
Without Revealing
Hoard To Assailant
WICHITA, Kan., Dec. 22 (UP*)
An aged ragpicker chose death
rather than reveal the hiding
place of $17,663.19 he had hoard-
ed over the years, police reported
today.
The frozen body of Jim Ross.
79-year-old semi-recluse, was found
in the poverty of the $8-a.month
unheated garage in which he lived.
Officials at a bank where the
money was counted said it includ-
ed $5,690.19. in coins, one $2 bill
and 9,461 $1 bills. The rest was in
5s, 10a, and 20s.

good reading," Smythe said.
He pointed out this means fewer
errors in processing, eliminating
retakes of patient X-rays, and m
general speeds the work of the
department.
A native of East Lynn, W. Va.,
Francis was a door-to-door sales-
man of blind-made articles in Ak-
ron when a blind friend told him
of the opportunities in X-ray work.
He studied in Cleveland, then went
lion U.S. war surplus ships.
At the same time, a criminal
indictment against Onassis was
dropped in federal court here. The
indictment charged Onassis and
several associates with eight
counts of conspiring to defraud the
United States through false state-
ments made when buying the war
surplus ships.
Six corporations allegedly con-
trolled by Onassis pleaded guilty
to the charges and were fined
$180,000 by District Judie Luther
w\ Youhgdahl.
Basis of the civil and criminal
charges was the government claim
that the Onassis interests failed to
comply with laws by which only
American citizens are eligible to
! purchase war surplus Vessels.
In settlement of the civil case,
Brownell said the government ob-
tained an agreement that the va-
rious shipping Onassis now con-
trols, will be reorganized so that
American citizens will be in ma-
jority control. The reorganised
companies then will be permitted
to retain 23 T2 surplus tankers
they now operate. Onassis, a na-
tive of Greece, is a naturalized
Argentine citizen.

COGNAC, France (UP) More

start in a race from Cognac,
France, to Brussels. Belgium.
Instead of taking the two or three
warm-up turns usual with racers
before taking course, the pigeons \
circled the town of Cognac some
50 times.
Oldtimers had one explanation
for Sic pigeons' reluctance toi
leave. The air here is fairly potent
with evaporation fumes of the I
town's famed product, cognac
brandy, they said, and the pigeons
simply were in no hurry to leave I

The service, in its first report on
a long-range survey of what work-
ers like and dislike about their
jobs, said low pay and lack of
opportunities for advancement can
wreck morale, but precarious job
security causes even more workers
to be disgruntled.
Dr. Fred Herzberg, research di
rector, said the survey so far shows
from 13 to 20 per cent of all em-
ployes are dissatisfied with their

they reach the mid-20's and early

Contact Lessens
At Higher Speeds
DAYTON. 0. -(UP) You're
really "flying" when you drive at
excessive speeds. A good portion of
your tires loses contact with the
roadway. .
When cars travel at speeds over
60 miles per hours, centrifugal
force develops a "throw out in
he tires that pulls them away
from the pavement, according to
engineers of Dayton Rubber Co.
That's one of the reasons why
you can't stop fast at high speeds.
There is less rubber on the pave-
ment to get a good grip. And the
gripping surface narrows more and
more at higher and higher speeds.

er of factory workers reached a;
record high despite the upward;

The bureau reported its con-

tenth of one per cent In the'
month ended Nov. 15. It stood
at 115 per cent of average 1947-
1949 prices, highest since August
1954.

The November index was
three-tenths of one per cent a-

a point below the record of 115-4
per cent, set in October 1953.
Deputy Commissioner Aryness
Joy Wickens said the cost of liv-

siderable stability," despite small
Increases in the last six months.
She predicted "no marked
change" In the next few months.
The report said the average
factory worker with three de-
pendents earned $72.85 after
taxes in November. 80 cents more
than in October and $4-67 more
than in November, 1954. The
rise was attributed to wage in-

RUSSIA RUSHES.STRATEGIC CANALRussia Is speeding
resumption of work on the Black Sea canal in Romaniaa 40-mile,
' 250-foot-deep waterway of vital importance in the event of war.
At present huge shipments of oil to Russia from the Ploesti oil
fields are piped to the Danube River port of Giurglu and then
floated 320 miles by barge to the Danube delta port of Sulina.
From there they go in tankers to Russia. In winter, the delta is
closed to shipping. The new canal, from the river port of Cerna-
voda to Constanta on the Black Sea, will cut the journey in half
and use a port open all year. The canal was started in 1940 and
worked on by hordes of slave laborers until May, 1953, when it
was abandoned.

The holiday season in the United
States, without the traditional
Christmas tree and gift exchange,
would be as lifeless to Chicans and
Texans as a bull fight would be to
Latin Americans without the col-
orfully attired matadors.
U.S. Army troops stationed at
Fort Gulick's USARCARIB School,
however, have discovered through
talking to Latin American students
that Christmas csn, and does, take
on various forms in diferent parts
of the Western Hemisphere.
Tske Peru, for example.
Imagine yourself walking down
the main street of a typical Pe-
ruvian town at the height of the
holiday season the night before
Christmas. Suddenly, a gaily attir-
ed youth approaches, grasps snd
kisses your hand. It haa a very
simple and appropriate meaning-
he is merely saying "Merry Christ-
mas."
Panamanians living in villages
in the interior have still a difeSrcnt
method of celebrating Christ's birth
1955 yesrs ago. On the afternoon
before Christmss, vlllsge youths,
dressed as shopherds, march to
the local church where they care
fully pick up a likeness of the
Christ Child and travel from house
to house singing Christmas Carols.
Unlike the American Christmas,
trees and fHt exchanges have
net become a part of the Peruvlsn
celebration. *
A town committee is established
to construct a duplicate of the birth
place of Christ. Hours o fwork goes
into construction of the manger
scene before activities begin early
on the eve of Christmas^
Shortly after nightfall, the town's
population go to the largest church
where a series of songs and skits
take place. A special group of sing-
ers and dancers spend the early
evening depicting events surround-
ing the birth of Christ. Activity pri-
or to the stroke of 12 is geared to
create an air of expectancy in the
townspeople. .
At midnight, the mood changes
and the populace celebrates the
birth of Christ. The remainder of
the morning is devoted to celebra-
tion, worship and a processional
to the town square.
How about the tree and gifts?
The Peruvian Christmas is a 100
percent religious event.
Altheuflh the laaaer cities of
Panama celebrate Chr I s t m a s
much lute families in the United
States, their country cousins
have still another method of pay-
ing homage to the Christ-child.
Much like Peru, the populace in
the interior construct a "Nacimien-
to", manger scene, several days
before Christmss. Although the
creche has been up for many days,
the Christ child is not placed in
the manger until Christmas eve.
Alter midnight mass, the fami-
lies hold big feasts, complete with
tsmales, their favorite holiday food.
"Villancicos," Christmas carols, ar
sung throughout the season.
Gifts have become a part of
Christmas in Panama's interior
but, still/ the tree is absent. San-
ta elects to place the present un-
der the bed, beneath the pillow or
in other spots throughout the home.
Regardless of where or how
Christmas is celebrated, however,
there is but one basic thought in
mind to pay homage the birth
of Christ,

Ohio's only five-term governor

Lausche often has praised the

Hit By Union Strike
But Pickets Called Off
MIAMI BEACH,' Dee. 23 (UP>-
The AFL hotel employes union
called a strike against the 14-
milhon-dollar Fonlainebleau, one
of the world's moat glittering ho-
tels, but caUed pickets off five
hours later when a circuit judge
banned them.
Shortly after pickets were post-
ed st a.m. yesterday, a feist
fight broke out on the line be-
tween a picket and hotel emp'oye
who were arrested by police.
Circuit Judge William A. Herm,
in issuing the temporary injunc-
tion, instructed the union and ho-
tel management "to resume activa
negotiations" until a hearing set
for Jan. 17.
Union officials had said they
were filing an induction suit a-
gainst the hotel seeking to re-
strain its officials and employee
from engaging in violence on the
picket line.
The union also charged that
management of the hotel issued)
''loyalty pledges" to its employe*
asking whether they were satis-
fied with working conditions. Bert
H. Ross, international union vice
president, cslled the move "a dis-
grace to the workers."
While some 20 pickets paraded

Judge Dismisses
Suit By 13 Whiles
Claiming Race Bias
MACN. Ga., Dec. 22 Federal Judge W. A. Bootle to-
day dismissed a suit by 13 watte
railroad firemen who contended
that the Central of Georgia
Railway and the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Firemen and tn-
ginemen discriminated against
them due to their race.
The firemen chsrged In seek-
ing an injunction and damages
against the railroad and the
brotherhood that Negro firemen
were better off. under the con-
tract with the railroad. ,
But Judge Bootle said that "it
will not be presumed that an
all-white brotherhood discrimin-
ates against Its own members...
on account of their being mem-
bers of the white race. The evi-
dence is entirely insufficient to
show such discrimination."
The contract requires that
firemen take examinations to
qualify as main line engineers
and that they be restricted to
yard work only if they fail to
pass. Negro firemen are not
permitted to take the examina-
tions under the contract, but
are permitted to serve as main
line firemen.
Bootle said the railroad has
"traditionally and consistently
discriminated against the Ne-
groes in matter of promotabili-
ty" but that -was not the issue
before the court.
"These agreements between the
railroad and brotherhood pro-

Greyhound^ bus drivers quit their
jobs yesterday in an "unauthoriz-
ed strike." stranding thousands of
passengers ea route hoase for
Christmas.
One of the hardest hit areas was
Key West, a large naval and Coast

The strike, called when a driv-
er was discharged in Mismi, af-
fected the entire east coat of

worked closely with the railroads
and shuttled their waiting passes)
ge/s to train stations.
The Trailwaya bus system,
which serves the Gulf Coast, put
on extra buses to help out in the
Christmas rush of passengers.
Herman Phillips of Lake City,
president of the union local, de-
clared the strike "an unauthoris-
ed work stoppage."
"I have asked the drivers to re-
turn to work. Vice president Jim-
my Deaton and I have made ev-
ery effort to get the driver's back
on the job and get the buses rolL

and anxious to resume service as
promptly as possible," Htf and o-
nieo officials held informal talks

Prom all indications this is one time the Amateur Athletic
fnlon U determined to attack an intra-lamlly unpleasantness
with a iUt inn instead of a popgun, with the germlcldal re
directed at promoters who ire, as well as athletes who take.
Immediately exposed to the ire of the AAU's belatedly awak-
ened consicence are Wes Santee, America's iormost miler and
cole! reliance in the Olympic 1500 meters, and certain^Califor-
nia meet directors who allegedly engaged in under-the-table

take of getting caught with his swindle sheet snowing, he took
the rap alone, though it was all too clear he could not have
been paid excessively without the ready concurrence of the
PrDlThe!ract that Santee's fiscal operations are being reinves-
t isa ted, along with those of meet directors, who expio..ed his
fame, represents a remarkable advance in AAU thinking, and if
the idea of source-surgery was a long time in taking form it is
nonetheless welcome even at this late hour.
The refusal 01 AAU leaders to accept an earlier dismissal of
charaea against fjantee by a district board, encourages the
thought that the track and field fathers have finally grown
weary of these repeated mockeries and are resolved to set their
*h Almost invariably the lathers accept the decision of a dis-
trict board as a matter of course. Their manliest doubt In this
instance suggests they feel that either the evidence was not
nroperly evaluated, or the attitude much too lenient.
That the attitude, in fact, may not have been impeccably
judicial was hinted at by a remark made by one of the board,
members. ? ,
MRS. SANTEE AN ITEM
"This boy hasn't done anything that others haven't been
dolni for years. Why pick on him?'
Maybe the others were less forthright or smarter. Ex-
clusive of travel expense, the AAU allows athletes $12 a day for
living .expenses, plus $3 a day for incidentals .
lantee turned in expense accounts for his California Inva-
sion that far exceeded the mximums. Thus, by the testimony
of hi own arithmetic; he had to be found In violation If AAU

WASHINGTON, Dec. 22 (UP)
Two year* ago, Joe Kuharich was
an unemployed coach looking for
a job.
One year ago, he was employed
but worried shout keeping his job,
after losing nine out of 12 games
as head coach of the Washington
Redskins.

Coach of rho Year, after Ills
Radtkint wound up at rho sur-
prise team of rho 1955 season
with an 1-4 record and second
place in rho NPL's Eastern Di-
vision.
Kuharich was picked by 15 out
of 30 sportswriters who cover
professional football in 11 cities.
Sid Gillman of the Los Angeles
Rams ran second with seven
votes, and other ballots were scat-
tered among Paul Brown of Cleve-
land, Web Eubank of the Balti-
more Cotl, George Halas of lite
Chicago Bears and Ray Richards
of the Chicago Cardinals.
Killarich's selection was almost
a foregone conclusion after the
job he did with the downtrodden
Redskins. Washington has not fin-
ished higher than t h i r d in 10
years, previously had only one
winning season since 1945, and
was given no chance as a title
contender this year.
But under rho ox-Notre Dame
star's fuidance, the 1*55 Red-
skins knocked off the powerful
Brown In the season's opener,
and stayed In the running until
the next to last week when New
York eliminated them.
Kuharich turned out to be an
astute trader and a ruthless pru-
ner, completely re-building the
Redskins in his first two years as
cosch. The re-building job extend-
ed even to the coaching staffon-
ly backfield coach Mike Nixon re-
mains of the assistsnU Kuharich
started with in 1954.
The craggy-jawed coach dotes
on condition, believing that "loo
msny games are lost in the fourth
quarter." His Redskins this sea-
son were rated the finest-condi-
tioned team in the league, and
they made up in hustle and desire
for what they lacked in experience
and ability. ^^^^

School of Ballet, Mrs. Howard Gee, known professionally as
Anna Ludmlla chats with one of her old admirers, Margot
Fonteyn (Mrs. Roberto Arias).
Top-Ranking Ballerina Margot Fonteyn
Meets Her Girlhood Dancing Idol Here
{Photos by HINDI DIAMOND)
A bright-eyed youngster with
flushed face and worshipful eyes
ho watched her idol, ballerina
Ana Ludmlla perform on a Lon-
n stage 30 years ago never
reamed then that she would
meet her three decades later In
Panama.
For durinjr these three dec-
ides, little Margot Fonteyn grew
up to be the No. 1 ballerina, star
of the Sadlers Wells Ballet, and
the object of her admiration,
Miss Ludmila, became the ballet
director of the National School
Of Dance in Panama City.
Their paths crossed for the
first time this week when both
dancers met to recapture mem-
ories of the gay era when Ana
ludmila shared top dancing
honors with such artists as An-
ton Dolin, AUcia Markova and
Leonard Massine.
Miss Fonteyn. who recently
became Mrs. Roberto Arias, ar-
rived in Panama to pay her first
visit to her husband's homeland.
Miss Ludmlla came to the Isth-
mus 10 years ago as Mrs. How-
ard Gee and lives In Curundu
with her husband, an Army em-
ploye.
The connecting link, besides
many mutual friends of danc-
ing fame, was Mrs. Cecilia Re-
mon, former First Lady of Pan-
ama and now counsellor at the
Panama Embassy In London.

Yesterday the famed balleri-
na saw first-hand the results of
Ight years of labor. She visited

with an admirlne throng

*em perform.
Qee recalled today that
the one part both women had in
common was in "Pomona," a
modern ballet about the Goddess
of Fruit. It brought out fresh
talent by Introducing composer
Constant Lambert, who Is now
artistic director of the Sadlers
Wells Ballet, and choreographer
Frederic Ashton, who is also
with the group now.
Wrote Ashton after watching
Miss Ludmlla's debut in this
ballet:
"Few things have given me
such satisfaction in this life as
lyour performance In this ballet.
It has made my life worthwhile.
Please accept the fact that you
did Inspire me wholeheartedly to
do this work, and by its success
you can judge to what extent."

The British ballerina, who will
leave here late tonight to spend
Christmas at home, feels Pana-
ma is fortunate to have the
services of so talented a dancer
as Ana Ludmlla.

sion too of a "beautiful country
that I want so much to see a-
galn soon."

U.S. May Settle United Fruit
Price-Fixing Suit Out Of Court
WASHINGTON, Dec. 22 (UP)
The Justice Department is consi-
dering settling out of court i t s
monopoly and price-fixing suit s-
gainst United Fruit Co., Inform-
ed sources said today.
United Fruit is one of the larg-
est U.S. corporations operating s-
broad. It has extensive holdings in
Central America and produces 85
per cent of the world's supply of
bananas.
The Justice Department accus-
ed the firm in a suit filed July
2, 1954, of monopolizing and re-
straining interstate and foreign
trade in the sale and distribution
of bananas.
But authoritiative sources dis-
closed today that Assistant Attor-
ney General Stanley N. Barnes,
the government's antitrust chief,
has been negotiating with United
Fruit attorneys over a proposed
consent decree.
Under such a decree a defend-
ant agrees out of court to stop
certain practices but admits no
guUt.
There was ao elaboration as
to what practice- United Fra*
proposes te cease, but it was
understood the contemplated
out-of-court deal involves a com-
piny promise to sell a small
part of its holdings.
Originally the government had
asked that United Fruit be made
to dispose of certain properties,
facilities and affiliates in such a
way as to reduce Its alleged con-
trol of the banana-growing Indus-
try end permit more competition.
Throughout the consent decree
negotiations it was understood,
the Justice Department h s s
kept hi close contact with the
Sato Department and the Na-
tional Security Cmueil. It has
done so in be belief that the
outcome of the United United
Fruit case would have "some in-
ternational impact."
United Fruit employs some 80,-
000 persons in Central America It
operates about 1,500 miles of rail-

Capt. Samuel Grier, III, mem-
ber of a well-known Canal Zone
family, was one of the victims of
the collision between a Strato-jet
bomber and a Stratotanker Mon-
day near Tampa, Florida, accord-
ing to news received on the Isth-

He was born in Panama City
and attended the Canal Zone
schools in Balboa. He was grad-
uated from Balboa High School in
1942 and attended Canal Zone Jun-
ior College for one year.
He attended the Military Aca-

It was pointed out that the com-
pany has incurred some hostility
in past years in some Latin A-
merlcan newspapers. But much of
this, informants insisted, was in-
spired by Communist workers who
attacked the company as an ex-
ample of "American capitalism."
The Justice Department ori-
ginally alleged that United Fruit
controlled the price of bananas,
held "nearly all land" In Cen-
tral America used for growing
the fruit and engaged in price-
cutting to drive competitors out
of the field.

was learned, the Justice Depart-
