LONDON. Sept. 20 (UP)Con-
servative leader Winston Chur-
chill has enthusiastically picked
up the challenge Britain's Labor
Premier Clement Attlee made
last night in calling a new
eral election for Britain's
li-.ment Oct. 25.
But Churchill promised the
British people only a Cold War
version of his "blood, sweat and
tears" formula If he wins.
Churchill warned that if his
bid to oust Socialism from Bri-
tain after a six year,trial suc-
ceeds, "the road will be hard."
The official campaign will

All sides hope the new elec-
tion will result in a more deci-
sive result than the virtual
deadlock ot the Feb. 1050 elec-
But the campaign for the
third British ejection since the
war promises to be bitter and
hard fought. The possibilities
are that the result will be as
Indecisive as before.
Attlee called the election in
the face of public opinion polls
which showed Churchill the fa-

For the first time in history,

Attlee drove to the British

dios to broadcast the 224-word
statement. It took one minute
"For 18 months," Attlee said,
"the Government have carried

with a very small majority In
the House,of Commons.
"I consider that the time has
come to aak the electors for a

British Firm Introduces
New Distress Signal Device
LONDON. Sept. 20 (LPSi An
automatic keying device capable
of transmitting alarm and dis-
tress signals at sea has been In-
troduced by a British firm.
Between 25 and 30 passenger
an cargo vessels and oil tankers
are now installed with it.
The unit is a motor-driven car
mechanism designed to transmit
either an alarm signal or a dis-
tress call when switched Into the
circuit on either the main or
emergency transmitter In place
of the morse key. When used in
conjunction with an emergency
transmitter, the distress signal is
repeated at intervals of 12 min-
The ship's 24-volt emergency
battery supplies the power for
operating the unit which will
continue to transmit the distress
call until the battery Is exhaust-
It can therefore be left run-

When East played low, South

An article on Hollywood claims
that in the movie industry the
"paat-50" man has far more box-
office appeal than the woman of
the same age. He is far more apt
to have glamor for the theater-
goers than a woman who has
had the same number o birth-
Well, that's pretty much true
In private life, 'also. When it
comes to age, men seem to get
or earnthe breaks.
Actually they do earn part of
them. Men, more often than
women, keep a young attitude
toward life. A man of 60 Is as In-
terested in poltica, in sports, in
business and In new inventions
as a young man.
He doesn't have a defeatist at-
titude toward age, either. Call it
conceit, if you like, but whether
It Is that or Just plain self-confi-
dence, the older man usually
thinks he Is as attractive to wo-
men as he ever was.
Women weep over the gray hair
that comes to them but a man
decides he looks "distinguished."
The youth that is no longer his,
he is sure. Is more than replaced
by his success, his greater wis-
dom, the place he has earned for
himself in his community.
And he Isn't always talking a-
bout his age. A woman may
carefully conceal the exact num-
ber of her years, but as soon as
she admits to herself that her
youth Is behind her she usually
becomes very age conscious. She
talks forever about "people our
age" or "at my age," etc. Men
aren't so likely to keep calling
attention to their years.
The world is a little kinder to
the older man than to the older
woman. But women could change
that attitude a lot by meeting
age in the spirit men meet it
still sure of their attractiveness,
sill interested In all kinds of
things, still convinced that age

RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept. 20
(USIB) Leading educators of
Brazil and other countries of the
Hemisphere are calling on the
Latin American Republics to ins-
titute an annual thanksgiving
day in November to acknowledge
the continued peace among them
and the "Christian moral code
which is essential to the progress
The proposal Is embodied In a
resolution submitted by Brazil
and adopted unanimously at the
Fourth Interamerican Congress
on Catholic Education, which was
held here last month. The meet-
ing Included a delegate from the
United States, where Thanksgiv-
ing Day has been celebrated
since before the nation, became
independent from England.
Brazil established Thanksgiv-
ing Day in 1049. The delegates at
the Rio Conguss resolved by ac-
clamation that all the republics
of North and South America
should hold a solemn Te Deum
mass on November 22, without
prejudice to any holidays already
established, to focus attention of
the world on that fact that "a
free North and South America,
through the voice of the great
majority of its sons, are proud
to proclaim the formal acknow-
ledgement of divine providence
which governs man and the
Christian moral code which is
essential to the progress of civil-

Holy name of God from the

ings, as well as from the family.
"Originated in racialism, in

Communism's objective is to re-
move all spiritual Influence and

JUST AN IDEA
At an informal coke party in Balboa, the other afternoon, a
subject was enthusiastically discussed, and I was asked to act as
spokesman for the group, in making the following suggestion.
With reference to the proposed removal of the Balboa DU-
fiensary to Gorgas Hospital. It was only natural that a general feei-
ng of dismay prevailed, at losing this accustomed convenience.
However, what is to be, will be, and no use fussing about it. But.
would It be asking too much. In part compensation, for a sort
of "silver lining." In relief from another great Inconvenience that
Progress has inflicted on us all. large and small? I speak of the

BAN FRANCISCO Before
we |et behind the headline-
making decisions of the men
who lead soma nine million
AFL people in pursuit of their
dally bread, let me first pass
on some incidental intelligence
on the personal travels of this
sparkling city's UN-favorite son
The Cockney-accented Harry
Just a few days ago he rush-
ed a thousand miles south to
the Mexican border. There, in
what passes for a smoke*-fllled
room. In a clap-board hotel In
Nogales Arizona, brother Bridg-
es met the men who recently
pulled the National Copper
They worked up a resolution
for the assembled convention-
lng copder workers which call-
ed for a new labor party to be
led by John L. Lewis, and they
indicated, officially, that Mr.
Lewis would have no difficulty
getting their new party's pre-
Brother Bridges, who is
knoion to his intimates as
"The Hose," because, among
other things, he can so sen-
sitively sniff out the latest
whims of the Cominform,
obviously reflects the Co-
mtniorm's eagerness to ex-
ploit the love and respect
of millions of foreign work-
ers for shaggy old John L.
So this Is to report that the
significant news behind the
scenes here, at the 70th annual
convention of the portly, but
believe me, still politically and
organizationally potent AFL
chiefs, Is that John L. Is aim-
ing a swift kick at the Inter-
national Communist apparatus.
Right where it will hurt them
He will open a European
headquarters, In Paris this fall.
Out of those Parisian offices,
he will Join the AFL in a wide
offensive against the Commun-
ists' Western European unions.
Whatever magi': the Lewis
name has among Europe's work-
ers will be hurled against the
Communists not to mention
monev by either his o 1
lieutenant from Alabama, Bill
Mitch, or his daughter, Ka-
Most likely the ladv will go,
for John L. trusts few living
persons as much as he does
his daurhter. ______
This joining of AFL and Lewis
forces in Europe should be mea-
sured by a yardstick of human

Wary Of Japan
By Peter Edson
WASHINGTON (NEA) Rep. Walter H. Judd
of Minnesota throws a sour note Into the other-
wise harmonious echoes of the Japanese peace
treaty signing at San Francisco.
"If I had been designated as one of the
American signers of that treaty," he declares.
i would not have signed it."
Rep. Judd was at San Francisco as an al-
ternate delegate and adviser to the American
delegation. He had promised . 8. Ambassador
Jonn Foster Dulles, architect of the treaty, not
to speak out against the document until it was
Rep. Judd says he is assured by Ambassador
Dulles that certain developments after the sign-
ing would satisfy all his doubts about the trea-
ty. Mr. Dulles could not reveal to htm In ad-
vance what those developments are to be.
But if they do not satisfy him. Rep. Judd says
he intends to apeak out against ratification of
The Minnesota congressman la a member of
the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
The House, of course, has no part to play in
ratification. But Rep. Judd waa for many years
a medical missionary in China.
He has been one of the most ardent support-
ers of Chiang Kai-shek and an equally ardent
critic of Democratic administration foreign pol-
icy in the Far East.
His basic theory is that there can be no peace
in the Par East until China la under an anti-
Communist government, allied with the western
powers. "Everything else he puts secondary to
Rep. Judd admits that it may be too late to
recover China from Communism. He believes
that it may have been too late ever since 1948.
His only hope for bringing China under a de-
mocratic government is through support of anti-
Communist guerrillas in China.
If he had his way, this would apparently be
the number one objective and program for Am-
erican Par Eastern foreign policy.
The point that this might Involve the United
States In direct intervention in the Internal af-
fairs of another government, R*p. Judd seems
to Ignore completely.
As for the Japanese peace treaty, Rep. Judd
considers It as utterly unrealistic. He does not
believe that Japan can be made Into a demo-
Within ten years, perhaps even within two or
three years. Rep. Judd savs he expects Japan to
be doing business with Red China.
Gradually, he expects Japan to be absorbed
In the Communist block of countries.
His reasons for this are that the natural re-
lations for Japan are wltn China and Manchu-
Rep. Judd says it is unrealistic for the Jap-
anese to buy high- priced American coking coal
for the making of steel, when such coal could
be and always has been' bought much cheaper
from China and Manchuria.
Similarly, Japan should buy Its soy beans and
rice from nearby countries, instead of the more
distant rice-surplus areas of Siam and Burma.
Though he has been consistently antl-Com-
munlst in all his speeches. Rep. Judd seems to
parallel the Russian line at San Francisco in his
belief that the new treaty will build up mili-
tarism and war Industries In Japan. This he Is
He says he believes that the American draft-
ers of the Japanese peace treaty know this, but
will not admit It.
He says the Japanese with whom he has talk-
ed also know that they are now committed to
a policy of rearmament.
Militarily. Rap. Judd declares that the real,
hidden reason why the United States wishes to
maintain air bases on Okinawa is so that It will
be able to bomb Japanese industry and destroy
it if the Japs get too strong or whenever they
start supplying military supplies to the Reds.
This somewhat sensational statement is brand-
ed as utterlv fantastic, and no help at all. by

declare, is to help protect Japan from aggres-

Criticisms of the Japanese peace treaty such

<*** WASHINGTON I
y PHEW PtAHQN I
Drew Pearson soys: U.S. taxpayers rooked by China Lobby;
Quickie company organized to handle huge sale of gas
to Formosa; Deals blocked by Sen. Knowland.
WASHINGTON. The more you look into the operations of
the Cnina Lobby, the more it is certain that the American tax-
payers' money, voted to help Chiang Kai-shek, was actnally
siphoned into the pockets of Chinese grafters and Ameritan
Some of these middlemen were suspiciously close to certain
Senators who consistently urged that more money be voted for
Thus it's possible that debate en the floor of the United States
Senate, one of the few free legislative bodies In the world, may
have been influenced by dollars, not conviction.
This may be why only a few brave voices such as Senators
Moise of Oregon and McMahon of Connecticut have spoken out
for a probe of the China Lobby.
One exception to this is Senator Knowiand. Republican of
California, who, though vigorously pro-Chiang, stopped some of
these deals when he smelled graft or unfair profits.
For Instance, here are the facts behind one deal that Know-
.'ancl stopped the attempted purchase of 5.300,000 gallons of
aviation gasoline for the Chinese Air Force by an American com-
pany which at first didn't exist, and which later was organized
by partners already in bankruptcy.
Here are the chronological events in this Important case:
On May 2, 1950. the Hau Tai Trading Co., Taipeh. China bid
on supplying the Chinese Air Force with 5,300,000 gallons of gas.
"product of the United Petroleum Company, Los Angels.'' for
The bid was sent to the Chinese in Washington and was fol-
lowed by a definite order from the Chinese chief of staff. Gen.
C. J Chou. who instructed the Chinese Air Force procurement
office in Washington to go ahead with the deal.
However. Col. W. H. Hsiang in Washington got suspicious.
Hsiang Is the same colonel who later got kicked out, following hla
efforts to clean up Chinese graft.
Colonel Hsiang knew, as reported in this column on August
16, that his chief of staff In Formosa, General Chou. had befen in
on a deal which siphoned $444.706 of the American taxpayers'
money into a mysterious account under the name of "Lee Sun
Company" in the National City Bank.
So Colonel Hsiang sent an investigator. Maj. L. S. Wen, to Loa
Angeles, to look into the United Petroleum C'j.
Major Wen found that the United Petroleum Co. did not exist.
Colonel Hsiang also cabled the chief of staff, General Chou,
that the company did not exist, then repeated the cable. He gob
The answer finally walked in the door o Colonel Hsiang'a
office In Washington on June 5. 1950. in the person of Edward A.
Martin, who claimed to represen', the United Petroleum Co.
Martin happens to be on friendly terms with a Senator who
has done great favors for the China Lobby.
It later developed that the Chinese chief of staff in Formosa
had ordered $1.637,700 worth of gasoline from a company which
at that time did not exist, and which obviously was formed merely
to handle this special transaction
The gasoline could have been purchased from any number of
well-known and established companies, or it could have been
purchased through the friendly help of the U.S. Government. But
it was not.
Suspicious, Colonel Hsiang asked Martin a lerles of questions
and had him sign the answers.
Among other things, Martin stated that the United Petro-
leum Co. had an office at 420 Madison Ave., New York, not in Los
Angeles, as previously stated; that its president was Lyon Mc-
Candless (also a friend of a pro-Chiang Senatori; and that its
representative in China was H. E. Renfro, Peninsula Hotel, Hong
Still suspicious, the Chinese procurement office then asked ltd
American lawyers for a report on United Petroleum, and found it
was a partnership between Lyon McCandless and his wife, to-
gether with E. P. McQueen.
Also, the partnership had been formed only on June 1 cal-
mest one month' after the gasoline had been bid on and ordered
NO BANK ACCOUNT
Furthermore, the Dun and Bradstreet report on United Pe-
troleum stated: "We have not been able up to this time to locate
any bank account in the name of the company."
Further investigation showed .that the sam partnership had
also organized five other companies which were either In bank-
ruptcy or inactive.
One of them was the Amer-Ind. Inc.. organized for trade with
India, which, on Dec. 5. 1947. petitioned for receivership under
Chapter XI of the Amended Bankruptcy Act, and now operates
as a debtor.
The same partnership also operated Amer-Ind France. Inc.,
a firm supposed to do business with France, out now Inactive.
It also organized Amer-Ind International, likewise now Inac-
tive; and Amer-Ind, Inc., of Delaware, for Laiin America trade,
Dun and Bradstreet reported back to the Chinese procure-
ment office that when they interviewed Lyon McCandless on June
8. shortly after the huge aviation gasoline order had been placed
with this seven-day-old firm, he stated that: "The firm was form-
ed for the specific purpose of acting as agents in the sale of
petroleum products to the Far East. The income will be derived
Kenneth N. Parkinson, attorney for the Chinese Procurement
Office, also interviewed Attorney Martin and reported that "(he
price which he quotes per gallon F.A.S. port of shipment, is ap-
proximately 1'2 cents higher per gallon than the price obtained
from Richfield Oil Company under your recent contract."
In view of all these factors. Colonel Hsiaiig took the matter
up with Senator Knowland and the deal fell through.
As a reward for making this and other Investigations, Colonel
Hsiang and his superior in New York, Gen. P. T. Mow. have now
been fired. '

But the name of Abner Dou-
bleday, officially accredited by a
special Investigating committee '
headed by A. G. Mills with hav-
ing "Invented" baseball, is not
only missing from the Hall of
Fame, but also from the Honor
Roll created to take care of those
men who made outstanding con-
tributions to the game other than
by active playing.
GAME'S GREATEST ARBITER
The name of William J. Klem,
greatest arbiter in the long his-
tory of our so-called national
pastime, graces this Honor Roll.
For 36 years Old Bill called 'em
as he saw 'em, and In his own
opinion he "never called one
wrong in his life."
Only a week before he died in
his Miami Beach home Old Bill
called another one right. "This,"
he told a bedside visitor, Monday
Sept. 10, "Is my last game and I'm
going to strike out."
He had been given up by his
doctors on several occasions dur-
ing a long Illness, but always ar-
gued they were wrong.
They will be telling anecdotes
and recalling incidents in the life
of Bill Klem as long as baseball
lasts, probably, and one that wUl
live through the years will be
about the time he finally con-
vinced his perennial feud part-
ner, the late John J. McOraw,
that he always called 'em right.
That was back in the old days
at the Polo Grounds when one of
McGraw's Giants hit a long ball
out to the scoreboard, which
would have won the game, except
that Klem called it a foul. The
"Little Napoleon," McOraw, fuss-
ed and fumed furiously, but
couldn't get the umpire to change
MEASURE PROVED HTM RIGHT
Next day McOraw had his
groundkeeper measure the dent
in the scoreboard where the dis-
puted ball had hit. The report
came back that the ball had hit
three Inches foul.

The International Boxing Club la
having trouble getting the fans

contract terms that their "feud"
has been forgotten. It was a "hot"

fighters are trying to stir It up
again. The Eaadler camp claims

Only one volee protesting the referee's action in stopping
the Rnbinoi-Torpin fight has reached this corner. It is a tele-
gram from . L. Eiklns, Manhattan, in which the gentleman
implies it Is an old American custom te short-change foreign
~y way of critical comparison he recalls the Louls-Schmellng
flgh which was stopped In the first round. ... "I distinctly re-
member Abe (sic!) Donovan, the referee, cctually counting the
German out as he stood erect against the ropes."
Hardly correct. The Naai Idol was in a pretzel bend prac-
tically gnawing the rope In desperate agony. It Is true that Ar-
thur Donovan did count while Echmeling was still on his feet.
This Is not according to Queensberry but it was a Donovan prac-
tice and it made sense.
After the fight he explained: "To me a fighter against the
ropes who takes one punch after another, makes no effort, or Is
unsble to defend himself, Is Just the same as a fighter who is
on the floor. In this case my alternative was to stop the fight.
But it waa only the f rst round. So I decided to give Schmeling
a chance to fight some more if he wanted to. He dldnt or
Jack Solomons, the English promoter, has been vehement In
his criticism of Ruby Goldstein. This is understandable. Pro-
moters are notoriously impregnable to punches. Besides it is to
Solomons' advantage to keep the controversy lively, since he
pirns to bring the two men together again In London next June.
And he would be derelict to his box office, If not his Ideals, If
he did not eater to the doubt and suspicion of prospective clients.
ONLY BIG ROUNDS COUNT
Here is a letter typical of several received on the subject of
scoring fights. . "Sir: I suggest the scoring by rounds be
abandoned and the point system used exclusively. In a 15-round
contest, a fighter may win eight rounds by narrow margins, take
a severe beating In the next seven, yet be declared the winner.
"Baseball offers a convincing argument in favor of the point
system. One team may score a run ln*ar.h of the first eight
Innings, while the other teams fails, to score At all. But if the
latter team should come up with nine runs In Its flnl time at
bat, there can be no question as to the winner.
. "So In boxing,.as in baseball, and other sports, the actual
winner Is not the team or Individual who wins-the most innings
or rounds, hut the one who accumulates the most points or runs...
Ypurs truly, Joseph Clesllk. 033 St. .Ann's Avene. The Bronx."
Most of the other letters would additionally: have, the points
announced at the end of each round and posted In the arena, as
the continuing progress of a ball game Is told on the scoreboard.
The system In vogue here permits the officials certain discretion-
ary powers. A boxer can be behind in rounds and still lead In
.J.sentlally. this is an admission that the rounds-won count
la r.)'. conclusive. If this is so, why not discard the rounds-won
feature altogether? If the greater number of points Is significant
what purpose does the rounds-won tabulation serve? Other than
to confuse officials, many of whom confuse too easily as matters
COST WALCOTT TITLE
We had a classic example of this contusion in the first Louls-
Walcott fight with Louis winning on rounds while' losing on
points. The three dfficlals had Louis winning 23 rounds to Wal-
cott's 19. At the same time they had Walcott winning on points,
37 to 32. Had the point count been the decisive force Walcott
would have won the heavyweight championship, as in the eyes of
most observers, he did.
I have always maintained the number of rounds a fighter
wins is comparatively unimportant. Only the big rounds mean
anything. Even If Robinson had lost every round going Into the
10th the other night and Turpin had managed somehow to survive
that round I would have had Robinson far in front, for the simple
reason he did more solid punching in the 10th than Turpin had
done through all the preceding n ne.
Rounds won Is not a true gauge and under the present sys-
tem the point auxiliary Jswell, Its pointless, as Walcott's expe-
rience attests. Since it Is so easy to establish the unsoundness
and Inequity of the rounds-won procedure why continue to use It?
Between the two, the point approach is much superior.
As to announcing the progress of the fight from round to
round, this has been suggested many times. It would undoubtedly
add to Interest and tension but whether it is advisable, I doubt.
We have too many officials who seem to be Influenced by fan
clamor now. Can you imagine the partisan roars a scoreboard
wuld Incite in the closing rounds of a close fight? Let's get rid
of the rounds-won Joker first, gentlemen.

"BUI Klem exhibited the great-

the close of the mass. "He was to

with a booming voice throughout
39 years of umpiring was ready
to leave the game when a Great-

Only a week before he died
Sunday from a heart attack,
Klem told his lawyer, "This Is my
last game...I'm going to strike
out this time." He was 77 and had
been ill for several years after re-

National League umpires.
Ford Frick, president of. the
National League, and Pepper
Martin, manager of the Miami
Sun Sox who played for the St.
Louis Cardinals while Klem was
still active, were among the more
than 200 persona who attended
the final rites.
"He was the greatest umpire
that ever lived,". Frick said.
"There never will be another BUI
Klem. A substitute, maybe, but
never another umpire like him."
Martin recalled that Klem
once asked him why he did not
become an umpire when he quit
playing. Martin said he replied,
"I would If I knew I could be as
good as you are"
