argument that Brazilian Gen.

"Please settle an argument for
us," requests a Pittsburgh read-

points. I was dealt the following
Q-Q-Q. 10-10-10, 9-8-8-5-4.
"I melded the queens and tens
as soon as my turn came. The
hand turned out unfortunately,
and there was much discussion
as to the merits of my weld.
"I argued that two melds of
natural cards gave my side a ve-
ry good start toward a base. If
my partner had one queen or
one ten, we had a base. If I fail-
ed to put down the meld, how-
ever, my partner might discard
her queens or tens, not knowing
that they were very valuable.
"My wife, who was my partner,
argued that the melds left me
with a very poor hand and that
the advantage of melding was
less than the disadvantage of
having such a pitiful remnant to
"Who was right In this case?
I;Also, what is the general rule for
this type of situation?"
I agree with the lady in this
case, and I'm not Just being chiv-
alrous. This situation Is one
that occurs fairly often and ex-
perienced players should recog-
nize It at a glance and know au-
tomatically how to handle It.
It Is very useful to have a base
toward a canasta provided that
vou are then in position to con-
tinue the hand on equal terms
with the opponents or to end the
hand by melding out. It Is un- |
wise to make one canasta if that
puts the opponents In a far su-
perior playing situation; and of
course, it is ven more unwise to
give the opponents such an ad-
vantage for a mere base Instead
of a canasta.
The trouble with my corres-
pondent's hand was that his
meld left him with five miscel-
laneous cards and not even a
wild'card. He was in no position
to take the pack unless the
right-hand opponent suddenly
went out of his mind and threw
a queen or a ten. Likewise, my
correspondent was miles from
The correct course to adopt
with such a hand is to play de-
fensively. Match your partner's
discards. If possible, from among
your odd cards. When your part-
ner eventually melds, you may
have an odd card or two to add
to his meld. At that time, If It
then seems wise, you can put
down the queens and tens to ad-
vance partner's play for out.
What happens If your partner
discards queens and tens in the
meantime? Just keep a poker
face even though each such dis-
card gives you the collywobbles.
After all, you have a bad hand
and must expect to have, a cer-
tain amount of trouble with it.

Reds, Yanks Fight In Hongkong
Court For 70-Plane
By FRANK H. BARTHOLOMEW
TOKYO, Sept. 17.(UP) The largest fleet of
transport planes in the Orient is about to be deliver-
ed either to the Chinese Communists or to the Am-
erican claimants to ownership, under the decisin of
a British court at Hong Kong expected at any time.
Seventy aircraft are involved, valued at $4,750,-
The planes are of American manufacture and
are under American registry.
They are at present impounded by the British
court' at Kai Tak airport in Hong Kong but are
guarded by Chinese civilians, some of whom wear

If the Communists are adjudg-
ed the lawful owners, they will
be presented with a ready-made
airlift tteet for troop movement
twice as large as any fleet now
flying In the Orient excepting
only the domestic service of the
Philippines Air Lines.
If the planes are turned over
to the American claimants, they
will be offered immediately after
reconditioning to the United Na-
tions for service In the Korean
airlift or for any other military
transport use desired, according
to Whiting Wlllauer.

With a picked staff of asso-
ciates, these men cleared 11
airplanes with British airport
authorities for flights to var-
ious points in Nationalist Chi-
na but actually flew them di-
rectly to the Communists.
To protect the remaining 70
planes from similar kidnapping,
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek
authorized Chennault and Wlll-
auer to assume protective con-
trol of them.
With the consent of the Hong
Kong police, the two men, who
were then operating the Civil
Air Transport service throughout
the non-Communist sectors of
the Orient, put armed guards a-
board the planes and held them
for five days.
On the sixth day, fearing riot
by Communist sympathizers, the
Commissioner of Police ordered
the guards off. Communist sym-
pathizers moved In Immediately.
Chennault and Wlllauer went
to court In Hong Kong and ob-
tained an Injunction enjoining
the Reds from possession of the
aircraft but were unable to get
the court order enforced.
At this time, the planes were
admitted by both sides to be
the property of the government

ority interest held by Pan
American, ndtbfe. Nationalist
ain and the U.S.

brought nine suits in federsl
courts in San Francisco for

longing to the former Chinese

successful in having the Ame-
rican courts uphold the validi-
ty of their title.
However litigation in -Hone

ly unsuccessful to these claim-
The BrlUsh passed an Order-

operate to protect the Reds'

with their litigation, but the

The solldarlsts have, tried to
overthrow the Soviet govern-
ment in Russia for the last 20
years. They fully realise how dif-
ficult it Is to attain this aim
without the help of an anti-
Communist world war. Yet they
keep on trying.
Before the second World War,
they had not been very success-
ful. The German Invasion of Rus-
sia gave them a first chance.
Their agente moved. Into Soviet
territory behind the German ar-
mies. Prlanishnlkoff insisted,
however, that the NTS was not
sponsored by the Naals. It was
opposed both to Nazis and Com-
munists, he said.
When the defeated Nazis re-
treated, many solldarlsts re-
mained on Russian soil. They
formed the nucleus of the new
underground. The headquart-
ers of the organisation con-
tinued to function in Germany.
They have their own radio sta-
tion and printing office. They
carry anti-Communist revolu-
tionary propaganda by the most
devious means Into Russia.
The American authorities in
Germany, Prlanishnlkoff said,
tolerate their activities. He em-
phasized, however, that they are
not sponsored by the American?.
In Russia the NTS Is organized
In cells of two. Thus If a solidar -
lst Is caught and tortured he
cannot betray the entire setup
even If he wanted to. He simply
does not know more than two
or three fellow solldarlsts.
On the other hand, this a-
tomised organisation makes it

That was the reason for the

Wilson gave this appraisal of
the national defense effort:
1' The government Is ordering
a billion dollars worth of military
equipment a week.
2) It is being delivered at the
rate of a billion and a half dol-
lars a month.
3) "Some items are on sche-
dule: some r.re running some-
what ahead- some running be-
hind schedule. On the whole, the
production effort Is good."
41 The government plana to
spend $50,000,000,000 a year in
the three-year defense program
and at its height, "the cost will
consume only about 20 per cent
of the country's entire produc-
tion of goods and cervices. Eighty
per cent of that production will
remain for civilian uie."
"It Is not a question of guns or

Church still keeps alive the spirit
of a legacy left nearly two cen-

One Sunday each month a loaf
of bread is placed on a table In
the entrance of the church. The
Dractlce resulted from a $1,000
legacv left by Theodore Atkin-

Atkinson specified that the
money be used to buy $1 worth
of bread for distribution ch

It was done for 100 years. Finally
the vestry took- the matter to
court and asked for a more prac-
tical outlet for Atkinson's char-
The court approved a request
to transfer the money to the

WASHINGTON, Sept. 17 (UP)
Sen Richard M. Nixon, R.. cal.,
said yesterday that sworn testi-
mony has "refuted" the claim of
Democratic National Chairman
William M. Boyle, Jr., that he
had nothing to do with getting
an RFC loan for the American
Lithofold Corp.. of St. Louis.
He made the statement in a
speech to a Republican rally at
Waukegan, 111., as the Senate's
Permanent Investigation Com-
mittee prepared to resume pub-
lic hearings today on charges by
the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that
Boyle received an $8,000 fee from
Committee Chairman Clyde R.
Hoey, D., N.C.. said that Boyle's
former law partner. Max Siskind,
will be questioned this week but
that no decision has been made
on whethtr to call Boyle himself
to the witness stand.
Hoey added that Boyle will
have a standing invitatten to ap-
Ksar "voluntarily" at any .time if
e wishes to answer any of the
Nixon, a member of the com-
mittee, said Boyle should be call-
ed before the Investigators at
once and "asked what gifts he
has received from other compa-
nies as well as from American
Lithofold since becoming Demo-
cratic Party CTialrrnan."
He said Boyle also should be
asked "if It Is true, as he claims,
that he has severed his connec-
tion with his law firm.. .or has
he continued to receive substan-
tial fees accruing from the cur-
rent business of that law firm?"
Boyle's home said he was not
immediately available for com-
ment on Nixon's speech.
Boyle has said previously that
he served as Lithofold's attorney
before becoming Democr a 11 c
chairman but had nothing to do
with getting the RFC loan and
that he severed all connections
with his private law practice
when he became a full-time par-
Nixon said Boyle's statement
was "refuted under oath" when
former Lithofold treasurer J. I.
Toole testified before the com-
mittee last week.
Toole said Lithofold got an
RFC loan, which had been turn-
ed down twice before. Just three
days after Boyle telephoned RFC
chairman Hartley Hlse to ar-
range an appointment for offi-
cials of the firm.
An RFC official said Saturday
he got a quart of liquor and sev-
eral free lunches from an official
of the American Lithofold Corp.,
while that firm was seeking a
loan from the government agen-
His admission came after Sen.
Karl E. Mundt, R., 8.D., reported
a Senate subcommittee has evi-
dence "some people" received
"gratuities" even larger, than a
$272 fishing trip that figured
previously In the Investigation
of loans to the St. Louis Print-
"As to receiving gifts or gratui-
ties, I did not," Ernest B. How-
ard, assistant chief of the loan
branch at the Reconstruction
Finance Corp., testified.
"One tima, back in IMS. Mr.
Toole (the lithofold officer) gave
me one quart of liquor. I did not
use It because I was not drink'
lng liquor and I passed it along
to some friend of mine."

That's not strange. The first

NEW YORK. The old man said a thing the
other day that must have struck a vibrant
chord In a lot of Americans.
Gen. MacArthur. more or leas musing, allow-
ed as how that the Japs may wind up "firmly
established within the protective folds of our
own cherished liberties, while we ourselves shall
have lost them."
We did a great and wondrous thing In our
magnanimous construction of the peace treaty
with the Japs, who, yesterday, were being de-
scribed as sub-human demons worthy only of
painful extinction in the best Bull Halaey fash-
And. certainly. America has been something
ess than vindictive in Its approach to Germa-
ny, whose basic clttaenry used to be floridly
described as pagan.
It leads a man to wonder somewhat If. in
modern times, It la not better to, lose the wars
than to win them.
Wlnner-take-nothlng has been our motto so
far, and the longer we go, the nothlnger we
seem to get.
I think It la Just too marvelous for words
that we have forgiven our enemies In the best
Christian sense, and built a new concept of the
victor's reaction to victory.
It Is probably good business, too. In our in-
creasing open enmitv to the Russians, and so
Is arming Europe, and so is ECA.
But wMl vou pardon a human frailty If I say
that only yesterday a fellow whom we called
Kraut so-and-so was popping at a few of us
with submarines, and people we called Nips and
Slants and Japrat whatevers knocked over Pearl
and cut off a few heads of captive airmen.
As an alumnus of that old fraternity I am
prepared to love my neighbor, but not frantic-
ally until I've had time enough to get accus-
tomed to him.
About 14 or 15 million of us are going to need
a little indoctrination In this come-alt-ye with
the good Krauu and the good Nips we used to
be mad at.
And the Idea. Just to us basic boys, of fresh
tax raises to keep our vanquished happy Is no-
ble In the mind, and smart too. and we still
don't like It.
We were dumb enough to disarm, overnight,
and now it appears we have to feed the world,
and let the people push us. everywhere, and pay
dearly for the privilege of winning, and it just
goes a touch against the personal grain.
I expect we need a strong Japan, and a strong
Germany, and must pay for the privilege of re-
rodding some folks that we took great pains
to frisk, at some additional expense in blood,
sweat and tears, to coin a phrase.
We will do It out of expediency, but you can't
expect us to love it.
But now it seems they are going to call the
married guys again, and already men with
heavy oversea* time have been hauled; back
from a deserved rest to go back to war again.
and the gist la what does it get us?
We have nearly wrecked the economy looking
after everybody else, with complete wreckage
around the corner, and we encounter very little
out Ingratitude among our neighbors.
We have already drifted, the general said, in-
to something very nearly like totalitarianism
here at home, with ensuing suppression of civil
rights that they told us loudly we were fight-
ing for In the last mess.
We have no olue as to whether. If we tangle
with the Russians, our grateful Japs and grate-
ful Germans won't rise and take another bust
at us as we lie panting in a weakened condi-
This It a pessimistic piece. I will admit, but
you can feel pretty pessimistic today if you
work at it.
From all the happenings since V-J Day, it
seems to me the winner is the loser, and the
guy who started the fight picks up the marbles.
At least he Is no worse than even with the
fellow who kicked his teeth in to save the world
East Must Work
By Peter Edson
SAN FRANCISCO(NEA) Japanese Premier
Bhlgeru Yoshlda and his peace treaty lelega-
tion return home to face a heavy round of ne-
gotiations with many of their 48 new allies.
But even before that. Premier Yoahlda must
obtain ratification of the treaty by hla own
government. . .
One of the first major supplemental set oi
agreements* which the Japs will have to nego-
tiate are treaties of friendship, commerce and
navigation with the United Sttaes the United
Kingdom, France, Netherlands and the other
principal trading countries which before tne
war did big business with Japan.
The treatv gives Japan four years in which to
conclude such agreements.
Next will come agreement with the Asian
countrlea for reparations. ,
Ahmad Subardjo. speaking for Indonesia, ae-
clares that he recognize* Japan cannot pay re-
parations now. But he reserves the right for his
government to collect later, when the Japanese
economy has more fully recovered.

From the American point of view, the main-

and as a political ally. Japan ha* been regain-
ed as an ally.
In balancing this shift of alliances, case can
be made that whereas China was a liability
that would always have to be supported. Japan
can be made Into an asset that will pay 1U own

In other word*, wapplng Chins for Japan

ly DREW PEARSON
Drew Pearson says: Europe today holds new hope for peace;;;
We must achieve a United States of Europe; Chief;:
danger is U.S. "wage-war-now" clique.
WASHINGTONI have come back from Europe with a newjj
feeling of hopemore hope than I had on any previous trlpt
The United States, In my opinion, Is definitely winning thi"
Cold War. Furthermore, time Is running on our side.
If it runs long enough. I believe. It may still be possible to
accomplish the miracle and bring about permanent peace.
This may seem like a strange summation coming from a
hard-boiled and sometimes cynical newspaperman.
However, I am convinced It la accurate. Like most newspaper-
men, I sometimes get so close to problems that I can't see the
trees for the leaves.
This U likewise true sometimes of governments and of th*
public. We read the pessimistic headlines and we conclude that
the world is In a helluva state.
To some extent, of course, it still Is. But success does not
make headlines, while tragedies do.
When the train gets In on time you never read about It In
the paper. If It's wrecked, oh the other hand, If* all over the
front pages. A wreck is a tragedy, and that's news.
But while we have been reading about the diplomatic train

This may be more Important than either of the two other
factors. For when men lack hope they turn to the phony promises
Today, however, the Marshall Plan, plus various gestures from
the American people such as Democracy Letters and the Amer-
ican Legion's Tide of Toys, plus the fact that a new European
army Is now camped alongside the Iron Curtain, haa given the
man in the street new hope.
When men have hope they fight to defend themselves. When
they lack hope they can see little use in fighting.
A BLEAK CHRISTMAS
Four years ago I spent Christmas In France and New Year'*
It was the most depressing holiday season of my entire Ufe.
Paris was dark, the street lights barely flickering, candle*
were used part time In the hotels: there was almost no heat, food
was scarce, and worst of all people had lost hope.
Sometime* It seemed that they went through the routine of
living merely because they had become accustomed to the habit
Even the great cathedrals and palaces which had looked down
on conquerors and revolutions looked gloomy and weary. Even
thev seemed to lack hope.
That was the crucial Winter the Communists chose for their
deadly strikes and riots to take over Western Europe, a winter
before we had adopted the Marshall Plan or begun to send post-
That was also the winter when the American people, usually
ahead of their government, sent Western Europe a token at
encouragement through the Friendship Trains.
That was the winter of 1M7. But this year It is so differentl
I had walked through the dismal, drizzly, darkened streets
of Rome and Paris in 1047 remembering the surge and tumult of
other years, wondering whether the old energy could ever return,
whether the people would ever smile again.
, Well, the old energy, the zest for living has returned.
Western Europe is smiling again; not only smiling, but In
creaslngly ready to defend Itself. Time is running on our tide.
PLENTY OF MISTAKES
This optimistic report does not mean that we have not made-
mistakes, or that the job Is finished. We have made plenty of;
mistakes, and the two most Important are:
1> We have failed to sell Europe on a United States qX.
Europe. Here at home we have shown how 48 different states cao'
apply the principle of federallzation yet simultaneously live un
der a central government: yet In Europe we have failed com-
pletely to put this across And this Is the only long-term solution
for Europe's economy.
2) We have failed to sell the Declaration of Independence
'Though we Uve under the greatest political document known
to man. we have failed to get European governments to adopt th*
principle of "equality" of economic opportunity. ",.
The old economic class system still prevails in Europe; and ,
until workers have a chance to better themselves economically.
Communism will continue to hold some adherents to its phony
Thus our greatest failures have been In failing to sell Europg,
the two basic principles of Americanism.
There Is also another failure and danger.
WAGE WAR NOW

No longer can there be decisive wars. The wars of today aro

A near capacity crowd at the
Coco Solo gymnasium last Satur-
day night saw the 903d AAA Bat-
talion take five out of seven bouts
from the 764th AAA Battalion,
thereby clinching the boxing
championship of the 65th AAA
The bouts were as follows:
Clayton Parrlsh, 903d, decisioned
Gilberto Morales, 764th; Middle-
weight Louis Brado, 903d, deci-
sioned Rodrigo Mndez, 764th;
Lightweight Richard Barnhart,

Navy's Heavyweight Don Razon,
in the second round.
In a fill-in bout Toms Rodri-
guez, 9C'3d, decisioned Robert Ed-
gar. 903d, in the seeond round.
The fight highlight of the eve-
ning was the bout between the
903d's Louis Brado and Rodrigo
Mndez of the 764th In the first
round Mndez came out in a
crouch and began landing long
left Jabs to Brado's body with
Brado countering with long lefts
to the head. Brado, the aggres-
sive fighter, kept his opponent
backing around the ring.
The second round still found
Mndez In his crouch with Bra-
do working with lefts and at-
tempting uppercuts to straight-
en Mndez. In the latter part'of
the round Brado's uppercuts
brought Mndez out of his crouch
and Brado followed with a series
of lefts and rights to the head
which shook Mndez badly.
In the third round Brado con-
tinued to find his mark with left
Jabs to Mndez's face and scored
rights to the body. Brado landed
a smashing right to Mndez's
head which staggered him. At

The 22-year-old bridegroom of
a few weeks had to come from
behind to become the youngest
golfer to win the coveted title
since Bobby Jones turned the
trick at the same age in 1024.
Gagllardi was one up at the
end of the first nine holes In the
morning round at fiaucon Valley
Country club. But the 39-year-
old lawyer was no match for
Maxwell on the second nine. Bil-
ly gained three strokes on Gagll-
ardi on that second nine and took
a 2-up lead as they broke for
The turning point of the
match came on the 14th hole in
the morning. Gagllardi seemed to
nave the hole clinched when his
wood shot dropped seven feet
from the pin while Maxwell
drove lato a trap 40 feet out.
Maxwell then took a half-swing
to send the ball hito the cup on
two hops. Gagllardi missed his
seven-footer and went one down.
Maxwell started fast In the af-
ternoon and built a 5-up lead by
taking three of the first four
holes. The red-haired, blue-eyed
youngster lapsed on the 26th and
27th where he missed two four-
foot putts, but that five-stroke
cushion kept him ahead.
Billy hit the last turn three
strokes to the good and. after
winning the 31st, halved the next
two holes to close out the match.
Gagllardi was playing under
the paw of three abcessed teeth.
The Mamaroneck amateur had
the teeth lanced Friday night for

All in all, it was a great flay for
Maxwell. Only six days' ago he

play of the boys for the most
part," said Coach John Fawcett
when asked how he felt-about his

Jim "May combined to give the
Whites all their points. Nicklsher
tossed a 15-yard pass to Dolan in
the end zone for the first score
late hi the second quarter, and
then in the third quarter May
did an outstanding bit of run-
ning to go 10 yards for the final
score. Both of May's kicks for
point were blocked.
It was a night for the White
Warriors as they dominated play
almost completely, and but for
some costly penalties might well

There Is little doubt left that
the Junior College won't be able
to field a football team this year.
After an uncertainty that seem-
ed to be increasing during the
past few weeks a squad how of 22
men is almost assured.
Now the question remains as
to whether they will have enough
sise and ability to put up a good
battle. Out of the 25 men that

a study to determine "whether
the people of the United States
are being denied, by- unreason-
able restraint, the viewing of
sporting events on television or

The resolution does not men-

Clemente's proposal stemmed
from the television blaekout on

The fight was televised on a
closed circuit to a few theaters

Under the expanded resolution,

would look into the college foot-

by falling football receipts last
fall In TV areas, has decreed that
only seven college games will be
televised nationally this fall. A
few others will be televised lo-
cally. Apparently large scale tel-
evising of the game is out.
The National Football League
also has restricted televising of
the pro games this fall. The pro
games away from home may be

The monopoly group spent two
weeks this summer delving into

was violating the anTi-trust laws.
Later the committee will go Into
baseball "territorial rights" sys-
tem whereby the broadcast of big
league games is prohibited with-

Clemente's resolution doesn't
stop at the television situation.
It calls for an investigation of
whether racketeers are connec-

promoters are Interfering with

of arenas, and whether persons
engaged in sports are In such
control as to shut off logical con-

Spirituano Scores Easy K.O.
Triumph Over Tito Despaigne
Cuban Welterweight Champion
Charollto Spirituano. 148, last
night battered "Wild Bull' Tito
Despaigne, 145*4, into senseless
submission in two minutes 55 sec-
onds of the ninth round after
dropping the strong Panamanian
lad four times before the final
Charolito easily outboxed the
hard-hitting Tito in the first two
rounds, then, during an exchange
in the third, dropped him for a
nine-count. When Despaigne got
up he was floored for nine again.
During the fourth Tito went
down once more for a nine count.
In the fifth the Cuban dropped
Despaigne as though he was pole
axed for another nine count, but
once more Tito arose to absorb
punishment. Despaigne, however,
made a remarkable recovery In
the fifth and at the end of the
round seemed to have the Cuban
in bad shape also. -
The sixth round was about
even. Spirituano took the seventh
and eighth although he badly
sprained his right hand during
an exchange early In the sev-
Almost at the end of the ninth,
Charollto caught Despaigne flush
on the chin with a cruel left that
put Tito down for the full count.
The Cuban completely out-
classed the local lad. He won
every round except two on our
scorecard, and one of these was
The semifinal wrestling match
was a thrilling exhibition of
grunting, groaning and tossing
about the ring. Therefore, "Phan-

midst of the exciting action.

ca. The affair was a real crowd
Fidel Morris, 123 Vi, knocked out

With the exception of one
match in the fourth flight, all
the semifinal matches of the
were completed Sunday at the
Brazos Oolf Club.
Charley Wood, reigning club
champion, made sure that the
winner of the first flight would
be a member of the host club
when he eliminated Maj. Harry
Gardner, the medalist from Fort
Davis, by a score of 6 and 4.
Wood was In top form, shoot-
ing a one under par 35 on the out
nine which put him 4-up on the
major at the turn and making It
simple for him to coast In on the
back nine for an easy victory.
The Anibal Galindo-Frank Day
match in the first flight produced
good golf from both competitors.
A ding-dong, battle saw Galindo
emerging the winner.
When the match came to an
end on No. 16 green, Galindo was
even par and Day just two over
regulation figures. This tussle, in
the final analysis, was decided on
