pay the union scale, and to pro-

The Army attempts to or-

after union leaders bad asked
President Truman to end the
unauthorized strike.
But the rebel faction of 20.000
longshoremen, led by Gene

Local Raters Get
2 Cent Wage Hike
As a result of the regular semi-
annual survey of retail price
changes in the Canal Zone for
goods and services normally pur-
chased by leca i rate employe fa-
milies, the Panam Canal Com-
pany and Canal Zone Govern-
ment have announced pay raises
of two cents an hour for some
14,000 local rate employes, to be-
come effective on Nov 4. the be-
ginning of the next local rate pay
Corresponding Increases are to
be granted to those local rate em-
ployes not included, in the grad-
ed wage sjsle.
These include employes in
such occupations as teachers,
deckhands and boatswains.
The Canal's action In raising
wages for these employes has
been discussed with other Gov-
ernment agencies In the Canal
Zone which are employers of
sizeable forces of local rate
workers, and It is understood that
the local Army, Navy and Air
Force organizations nave recom-
mended to their Washington
headquarters similar wage in-

such increada, nowever, approv-
al must be fsrthcomlng from

This gupo.ements the average
ten per cent increase of five cents
per hour which was effective
April 23. 1351, and brings the av-
erage local rate wage to double
the 140 level.
Thto Increase further follows
recent developments among clas-
sified and wage board employes
of .the Cana' agency.
The new pay scales for local
rate emplo>es will range from
a minimum of 33 cents an hour
for grade 1 hour for grade 15 (e).
Local rale employes of the
Company and Government who
are in "boten.' rates of pay will
not receive ohese Increases unless

ent rates. Many of these em-

Apathy A mong Chinese
Worries Red Leaders
HONO KONG, Oct. (U.P.)
Communist China's leaders are
becoming disturbed about the
Increasingly negative attitude
and even open hostility being
displayed toward the revolution
by the large mass of Chinese,
including many party members.
In an effort to keep enthus-
iasm alive. Peiping has ordered
local administrations to speed
the establishment of "people's
representative confere n c e s,''
which is the Communists' sub-
stitute for democracy. Actually,
the so-called "people's deleg-
ates" are handpicked, the ques-
tions they can ask are strictly
limited and their only power is
to make recommendations.
Peiping also has ordered local
officials to jack up their public
relations, receive all callers and
answer all letters politely within
a speclflcied period. Apparently
eomplaints about the official at-
titude toward the public had
reached the communist capital.
Local officials were ordered
either to promise that eom-
plaints would be Investigated
and rectified, or to explain to
the public why it is Impossible.
The Communist organ in Han-
kow, largest city of Central
China, examined at some length
the pase of "the mentality of LI
6su>hsl. a village cadre." Li was
a faithful member of the rank
antf'tbe file who was given some
land and a minor party post.
After the land reform, how-
' i
'work1 sights
oftena, smooths
linea; da,, "holds'
mskf-up oa tight I
ever. "Li became contented and
slackened in his work for the re-
volution," the paper said. "He
thought now that he has land,
a wife and children, he has only
to devote himself to production,
and showed unwillingness to
work for the government."
" 'Previously I suffered a lot
and had no land,' Li was quoted
as saying. 'Now I have been
given land and I am totally sat-
isfied. Why should I work any
more for the revolution?'"
"This state of mind exists in
varying degrees among a con-
siderable number of village'cad-
res and peasants," the paper
said. "In Hunan province, since
some 4,000 villages completed
land reform last April, a large
number of village cadres and
peasants have been found to be
victims of political lethargy."
The paper said this state of
mind "has encouraged counter-
revolutionaries and unlawful
landlords. These people spread
rumors, carried out sabotage and
even poisoned wells and set
houses afire. In one district, un-
lawful landlords actually organ-
ized armed revolts."
The paper appealed for a cor-
rection of this backsliding, which
It said posed a potential threat
to Communist rule of China.

Filipino Reds Clamor
For Revolt In Islands
COLUMBIA, S.C., Oct. 24 (UP)
Gov. James F. Byrnes said yes-
terday he will ask the South Ca-
rolina legislature to make public
the names of receivers of welfare
assistance in an effort to get
"chislers" off the rolls.
He said he would ask the legis-
lature which meets in January to
permit public inspection of the
names of persons receiving old
age benefits and aid to depen-
dent children and the amount
each persons receives.
He said he thought newspapers
should be free to publish these
His action followed by one day
an order by Gov. Herman Tal-
madgc of Georgia which made
public the welfare rolls of that
Both Georgia and South Caro-
lina are acting under an act of
Congress which repealed a pro-
vision prohibiting states to make
public welfare lists on the threat
of losing Federal welfare funds.
Byrnes said it would require le-
gislation in his state to make the
lists public.
"I believe that the rolls ought
to be opened to the public."
Byrnes said. "It is public funds
and the taxpayers have a right
to know how their money is be-
ing used."
"When we assume to put an
Iron Curtain around how the
money Is being spent, this is a
wrong assumption," Byrnes said.
He said he is "satisfied" that a
careful Investigation would re-
veal numbers of "chislers" on
the rolls.
Byrnes said he would ask for
a law which would permit the
state to attach a lien on the
property of persons receiving
welfare assistance if it developed
they had such property.
It happens to everybody oc-
casionally. You're bidding along
quietly, minding your own busi-
ness and trying very happily to
get to the wrong contract. Then,
suddenly, one of the opponents
pushes you in the right direct-
That happened to Mr. and
Mrs. Cy Newman, of Detroit, in
the national championships at
Washington. Mrs. Newman was
headed for seven hearts, which
would have been set. But then
West helped her by doubling six
That was an unlucky double.
The bid of six spades wasn't
meant seriously. It was Just a
Blackwood Convention response,
showing three kings. The. double
of six spades likewise wasn't
meant seriously. It was Intended
to show East a favorable opening
. But Mrs. Newman meant her
redouble very, very seriously In-
deed. She had excellent spade
support that had never been
shown. This was a good way to
show the support and at the
same time to beat par on the
The play was quite Interesting.
Newman won the opening diam-
ond lead In his hand with the
king. He looked carefully at all
the aces and kings in the dummy
and In his own hand and saw at
once that West's double was
bound to mean four or five
trumps. He tested the situation
with a lead to dummy's ace of
trumps, and was relieved when
East was able to follow suit.
The rest was a matter of gues-
sing how often West could follow
suit on the three side suits. New-
man finally cashed three top
clubs, two diamonds and a ruff,
and three top hearts.
This left West with only three
trumps in his hand. Newman
therefore led a heart from dum-
my and ruffed with the nine in
his own hand West was forced
to over-ruff and to return a
trump up to declarers king-Jack.
The young Detroit expert thus
worked the rare and difficult
Irump end-play for a score of
2220 points and" a clear top.
MANILA, Oct. (U.P.) The
underground Communist Party
of the Philippines has Jumped In-
to the island's turbulent 1951
election campaign with an appeal
to voters to use bullets rather
than ballots.
In leaflets and pamphlets
ground out by the party's propa-
ganda machine, Filipinos are
urged to boycott the November
elections at which voters will
pick nine senators and fill prov-
incial and municipal posts.
"Refuse to vote for the imper-
ialist-puppet candidates," the
party said. Instead, "Joki and
support the armed struggle for
national liberation."
The Communist campaign lit-
erature has been appearing re-
gular!* to Manila and in the
provinces, stacks or mimeo-
graphed election propaganda
have been seized in raids on Red
handouts by government agents.
The Communist case Is stated
at length in a 10-page booklet
a companion piece to leaflets
picturing a ballot captioned
"Don't use this," and a rifle with
the appeal, "Use this."
The party finds little to choose
between President Elpldio Quir-
ino's Liberal Party and the oppo-
sition Nacionalistas and makes a
strong appeal to those with na-
tionalist or Antl-Amerloan feel-
Of the two major parties, the
booklet says:
"The corruption and degener-
acy of the Liberal Party is known
in every city, town and barrio.
"The Nationalist Party, like
the Liberal Party, Is infested
with cheap grafters and politic-
al career men who gladly sell
themselves to the highest bidder.
"Nacionalistas are being bought
off by the Liberals and Liberals
are being bought off by Nacion-
alistas and the people are being
sold by both."
After dismissing both groups
with the comment, "Today it is
not even a matter of choosing
between the lesser of two evils,"
the booklet gets to the usual red
tirade against "American imper-
"The bankruptcy of elections
in the Philippines is the result of
a complete corruption of our
politics by American imperial-
ism," the booklet says.
"The big American Investors
and military men who dominate
our country have always toler-
ated and abetted corruption here
because it makes good puppets.
"Whatever the American im-
perialist want In our country
they can'get. All they have to do
Is to demand It, and the puppets
of both parties leap forward to
do their bidding.
"The armed struggle Is the rev-
olutionary solution to the peo-
ple's problems," the party con-
to making the names of welfare
recipients open to public Inspec-
tion. But he asked that some
confidential information in the
department's files of a personal
nature be withheld from public

American Farmers Doing All Right-^
ITHACA. N. Y. (UP.) The
American farmer of 1951 and the

lege of agHculture at Cornell

and Dr Herrell DeGraff design-
ated the past five years as "with-
out parallel In the history of

While not' every farm family
has been touched equally, "look-

years have brought opportunity,

respect to rural America," the
trio said.

eventually build a national park

with anguish. For on -thing,

When you first begin to play
Canasta you're full of reasons
for freesing the discard pile. You
have too many wild cards, or not
enough; you have many safe dis-
cards, or yery few; your oppon-
ents have melded, or they
haven't. And ao it goes. If you
don't have a reason you'll invent
As you gain experience, you
learn that the excitement of a
freeze often costs a high price.
You learn to freeze when you
have a good reason for doing so,
and not at any other time.
That Is a lesson that everybody
has to learn for himself, so I
wasn't surprised the other night
to see four beginners throwing
wild cards around as though they
meant nothing at all. It was a
very exciting hand to watch, but
I waa perfectly happy to be
watching rather than playing.
The situation seemed to call
for a freeze, but it didn't really.
Both sides needed SO points for
Uiw Initial maid, and everybody
managed to make three or four
safe discards to start the hand
off. By that time, of course, the
discard pito waa worth having.
The value of the pile influenc-
ed one player to hurl a deuce into
the pile. She had more wild cards
than she needed, and she hoped
to make room in her hand for
natural cards. i
These would be good reasons
for freeling If her aide had some
playing advantage. For example,
if one of the opponents had a
abort band (fewer than eight
cards) or if the opponents need-
ed 130 points for their first meld,
a freese might have been a good
gamble, in this ease it was Just
a wild gamble-
After the frees, everybody dis-
carded safely for a while, and
then everybody began to throw
wild carda Into the discard pile
Eventually the pile was picked
up, and the successful side scored
OTer 4000 points on that hand
It doesn't really matter which
side did the fretting or which
side finally won the pUe. The fact
remains that the game had Just
knm and that nobody had the
right to gamble on winning or
toeing ao hoce a acore on a single
When the potinents freeze
you dont hate to go into a do-
or-dle battle for the pile. If your
hand la bettor suited to a fast
out than to a struggle for the
pile, give up. Let the opponents
taka the pile, and let them make
amaU profit. Re who flv.hts and

In wilderness sanctuaries from

fighting to save its three largest
birds from the dodo's fate.
Trumpeter swans, their haunt-
ing- sky song echoing like French
horns over Montana's Red Rock
Lakes National Wildlife Refuge
and neighboring Yellowstone
Park, are slowly winning their
uphill race against extinction.
Closer to oblivion are the na-
tion's few remaining whooping
cranes and the laat 00-odd Calif-
ornia condors still to existence.
These are the B-36's of the
bird world, the National Geo-
graphic 8oclety aays. The trum-
peter swan Is considered the
heaviest, the whooping crane the
tallest, and the California con-
dor as having the widest wing-
spread of any North American
wildfowl. They are also, with but
two possible exceptions, the ra-
rest birds on the continent.
Sixteen years ago, only 73
trumpeters were known to nest
in the U. S. Fashion's demand for
swan plumage, together with
drainage and plowing of frontier
nesting grounds, virtually wiped
out tbe 30-pound birds in the
latter lSOO'i.
Last summer, wildlife biologists
and refuge managers counted

And on it our counter-intelli-
gence forces are paralysed. Tell
you why. 7 '
For almost a week now, a
mound of vital war materiel
addressed to General Elsen-
hower has been squatting on
the piers, getting no further
than the edge of Brooklyn.
In that huge pile, it can be
reported, are special tanks,
trucks, other vital mobile equip-*

Meanwhile, working desper-

thing called Cavan's Ptrlnt,
down from New York Bay.
There's an Army .base there
and the sweating officers were
trying to get certain crates
aboard Europe-bound freighters
before the New York strike fe-
ver hit their docks.
For in those crates was the
radar equipment designed to
throw a aereen around our Al-

no swift Red raids darting un-

The crippling flash strike,
long predicted in this column,
was no surprise and is in the

WASHINGTON(NEA)For all practical pur-
Kses, the Marshall Plan will go out of business
a. 1, six months ahead of toe originally sche-
duled end.
The new Mutual Security Act just passed by
Congress psevloes that ECA- -the Economic Co-
operation Administration which ran the Marshall
Planmust cease all economic aid to foreign
countries by June 30, 1D62, Tcept where it is
tied in with military assistance.
Incompleted Marshall Plan reconstruction pro-
jects will, of course, be finished.
But'by Jan. 1, the new Mutual Security Admi-
nistrator probably Averell Harrimanmust de-
signate which of th.Marshall Plan programs
should be continued. -
MSA itself has been given a life span of rough-
ly two and a half years, ending June 30, 1864.
By Jan. 1, 1962, MSA. In taking over what's
left of ECA, must be operating with 10 per cent
fewer employes than the Marshall Plan had on
Tnat was in round numbers 1.4001100 of them

Iri rppnW 1* ZltSamBWa and programs
In a single package, to be bundled about by a
single coordinatorMr. HaxrlmanCongress has
in effect laid the foundation for a world-wide
assistance program.At present, the MSA struc-
ture to be built on these foundations- Is pretty
well compartmentalized.
Biggest is. of course, direct military assistance.
That will get approximately 86 billioa.-aat of the
$7.5 billion iotal .foreign aid authorised.
This military assistance will be administered
by Department of Defense. Its allocations to
various countries and areas are secret.
General Elsenhower's European army will, or
course, get the biggest share.
The remaining $1.5 billion for economic aid In
support of military assistance Is divided half a
dozen ways.
Europe again gets the biggest share $1^022
billion. Of this, $55 million may be used to buy
strategic materials. _^_^___
World Aid
Peter Edson

Of the $967 million balance, a part will be eco-
nomic aid for the countries wnose recovery has
been slowest. Austria. Germany, Greece, Iceland
and Trieste are in this category
For- the Fast East, the Department of State
had asked $375 million for the present fiscal year.
Congress approved $237 million. Much of this is
straight economic recovery a;d.
It does not include economic assistance for
Korea. The Marshall Plan ceased to function
there some time ago. A separate $45 million
authorisation for economic assistance to Korea
has been approved.
For the Middle East. $160 million has been
authorized. But this doerituvt' include Greece
and Turkey, which are in the European program.
Also, two big chunks of the $160 million could be
transferred to special accounts by MSA Coordin-
ator Harriman.
Fifty million dollars could be allocated to the
United Nations for the Palestine refugee pro-
frm- ^ .
Another $50 million could oe ear-marked for

tion of $31 million.

der State Department Administration, and it will
be divided several ways.
Three million of th amount may be transfer-

Of the $18 million remaining over $8 million
will go to the Institute of Inter-American Af-

which, since early World War II days, has been
operating agricultural, health educational and

ed cost basis with various Latin-American coun-
tries Its present head is Kenneth Iverson.
Now And Then
______ly OtIW PEiiSON ,'
Drew Pearson says: Sen. George says CIO killed his tax]
bill; New Democratic Chairman may come iron South; ;
Truman plans White House shakeup.
' j
WASHINGTON. When Sen. Walter George of Georgia heard-4
ttu news that the House of Representatives had rejected his loop- i
hole-riddled tax bill, he snorted: "The CIO did it."
Big, bald. Sen. Gene Mtlllkin. Colorado Republican was' more i
wnlmUcal. Meeting Democratic Sen. Hubert Humphrey of Minne- *
ot, who had battled against tax loopholes, he Joked: -
When the Republicans and the CIO get togethefvlU an un-
S?e cornblnation. That's a partnership you can't ifci.-i
What he and George referred to, of course, was that labor
did big-city populations were dead opposed to the tai .bill be-
cause of the many loopholes favoring upper-bracket taxpayers.
Both, however, overlooked one other important factor behind
the defeat of the tax bill namely, the astute political strategy
of cagey OOP reader Joe Martin of Massachusetts.
Joe was the mastermind behind the almost solid block of Re*
publican votes against the tax bill.
Hi official excuse was: "Less government spending rathe
than higher taxes."
His real reason: "The longer passage of a tax bill u delayed,"
the more it will help the Republicans."
Republicans are not shouting It from the housetops, but what
they really want is 'a tax delay until next year, thus putting the
Democrats in the embarrassing position of passlnR an unpopular
tax bill In an election year something the party In power tra-
ditionally tries to avoid.
There's a lot of talk among Democrats about getting away
from the precedent followed under Roosevek of picking a big-
clcy Irish Catholic as chairman of the Democratic National Com-
mittee. No religious prejudice is mixed up In tlii, but rather geo-
Southern Democrats point out that no Southerner has been
cha.rman of the national committee since Cordel! Hull in 1920.
They feel that It's now vital to weld the party together ana--
woo rebellious Dlxiecrats back into the fold.
This is one reason why able Wilson Wyatt, ex-mayor of Louhj-
vllle, Ky is being pushed for the Democratic chairmanship.
Westerners also point out that no one from their section of
the country has led the Democratic National Committee in a
long time; so are boosting ex-Congressman John Carroll, one Of
the ablest men recently to serve in Congress.
Another Westerner under consideration is George Killion of
San Francisco, former Democratic treasurer, under whom there _
were no scandals. ......
Roosevelt's reason for putting big-city Irishmen at the helm
of the party was partly because he considered them shrewd poli-
ticians, partly in order to swing the big-city vote which Is pre-
dominantly Catholic.
Thus, Jim Farley was followed by Ed Flynn of the Bronx;
Flynn was followed by Frank Walker of Scranton Pa., and New
York; then Bob Hannegan of St. Louis, who wai replaced by exe-
cutive director Gael Sullivan of Chicago and Howard McGrath of
Providence, R. I.; who were succeeded by Bili Boyle of Kansas .
City all from big-city areas. ,.,
NOTE One eastern Irishman for whom President Truman,
has great personnel regard is John Sullivan of New Hampshire,
former Secretary of the Navy.
John is so conscientious." Truman recently told a friend,
"that he wouldn't write Frank Knox's will until he resigned from *
the Treasury. He said he would not accept outside work when rat
was on the government payroll."
(Sullivan was then Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and
Knox was Secretary of the Navy. Both came from Mancbet#C,
N. H.)

The whole business has become non-ensicai.
These reflection* are Inspired by thl report-
er's curious experience of sitting for long, wearj
hours, waiting to take his turn on the stand
while Robert Morris. Counsel vlfen. Mgarran^
Subcommittee on Internal Security, grilled Henry
A. Wallace on elected tiny morse* from the

ther silly pamphlet Wallace wrote tor the; In-
stitute of Pacific Relations in 1944, called Our

Morris treated this unrepaying: ten centi.worth
us though it were a red-hot oorab. contacted in
the secret cellars of the Kremlin.
The pamphlet aid not mention American arms
for the Chinese Communists. It did not mention
indeed. 8 d^ot even touch upon the Chinese
Communist, at all. while It Included a 1goiringly
laudatory reference to Chiang Kai-shek. These
points were not remarked u]n.
The pamphlet was also an'.i-colonlal In gen-
#rAnMAmerlcan who Wmpatblas with colonies
struggling to be free is not by definition pro-
Sinbt Yet as far as thl implication could
be left upon the record, Morn- left it.
The great point that Morris made, however,
was that poor Wallace was oro-Communlst In a
ierles of waffling expressions of hope that the
Soviets would be nice aftr the war
In brief, Wallace had written that the Russians
had shown good faith by not previously Inter-
fering in Chinese affairs (whh-h was wrong, since
Marshal Stalin was the first to give active aid
o Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek In the war
aHelnhad wrttttn further, that he believed the
Russians had no Imperialist aspirations and
that he hoped the Russians. Chinese and Amer-
icans would all be able to co-operate cosily in
the post-war world.
As Morris droned on with his accusatory ques-
tions, this reporter automatically sought distrac-
tion in an article in the weU-known fellow-tra-
velling publication. "AmeraSi*."
This article turned"~out to contain generous
Quotations from two other papers, by the Morris
system also by inference fellow-travelling, ftt
and The New York Times.
In the spring of 1944. the Ufe editorial had
commented on an unusuaMy venomous attack on
Generalissimo Chiang Kal-ahek's government by
the Time-Life correspondent in China, Theodore
Reproducing a few .of the more choice White
epithets, the Life editors remarked: -
"The U. S. cannot Ignore the fact that If
China's government should become a fascistic,
power-hungry, repressive, landlord's and
usurers' government, it is all too likely to get
into trouble with Russia; whereas a government
which stands for freedom, teform and Inter-
nation co-operation is not.
"Under no circumstances would the American
Seople ever wish to be embroiled with the Soviet
nion in a struggle in which they would feel
politically on the wrong aide "
This Ufe editorial, so closely paralleling Wal-
lace, except that he was genial towards the
Generalissimo, closed with the prediction that
if the Chinese would only be 'freedom-loving,
progressive." there would bo bo trouble with
the Soviets.
As for the New York Times, In the fall of
1944 Its editorial page ringmgly called upon
President Roosevelt to "make it clear to Chiang
that his prestige will be enhanced, not dimin-
ished, if he takes certain steps."
Among these steps were ceasing to 'hold a
great part of (his armlesi on guard duty
against his political opponent (th Chinese
Communists;"; making, "a genuine truce with
the Chinese Communists"; and consenting to
take into his government members ol the re-
presentative groups and parties."
Here, In the New York Times, was strong
stuff indeed. Here was open advocacy of sev-
eral points that the eminent professional ex-
Communist, Louis Budenz, had testified on oath
belonged to the Communist party line. Here
was worse than Wallace, with a vengeance.
But who was on the stand? Why. Wallace of
course, under charges of pro-Communism.
The reader can find his own language to
characterize this sort of thing..
President Truman has told trusted friends conf
his plan to shake up the White House staff as well as the Demo-
cratic National Committee. .
"I think we need some new faces and new ideas In the Whit.-
Houee." he aid. I'm just getting the same old thoughts bac*}^
again." ,.
He also added another interesting angle. \
"Whoever gets the nomination next year," he said, "shouldn't"
Abe handicapped by scandals, at the Democratic National Coffimit^
tee that reach into the White House, even If the publicity Is exag- .
gerated by the newspapers," '*
The President remarked that he had decided Democratie.,.
Chairman Bill Boyle should resign some weeks ago though Boyle's
friends had pleaded with him against the move "
Finally, he called Boyle over and said in effect:
"I know you've been complaining about your health. Before -
we gat into the campaign preliminaries, you'd better get a phyri-"'
cal checkup."
Boyle took the hint.
Prior to this occurred an unpubllclzed but stormy session at -
the White House between Boyle and Truman's former counsel}--
Clark Clifford.
For several months Clifford, now a prvate attorney, had been
urging the President to clean up at the Democratic National Com-,
mittee Its top executives. Clifford told his old chief, were squan-.
dering hundreds of thousands of dollars of precious campaign
funds and achieving almost no results. i-
They had not even formed a research staff to dig up, infor-
mation essential for campaign speeches and congressional debates.
"You've got to get rid of these peanut operators. Clifford
said In one session with the President.
Clifford's constant criticism linally culminated In an even-
ing session at Blalr House when Truman invited both Clifford and
Boyle m to talk the whole matter out.
Clifford repeated to Boyle his claims that the National Com-
mittee was poorly managed and achieving little. Boyle demurre.

Truman listened. Clifford got caustic. Boyle got bitter.
Finally the President broke up the argument. However, hi
ton to ease out Boyle dated from that evening. ^^___

the -Senate Preparedness Sub-
committee of the Armed Ser-
vices Committee, headed bv Sen.
Lyndon B. Johnson, D.. Tex., fol-
lowing complaints that Keesler
air force base men were being
fleeced by gaming parlors.
Sen. Lester C. Hunt. D.. Wyo.,
served as chairman of the sub-
committee for the hearings in
the absence of Senator Johnson.
Testimony at the one-day
hearing brought out charges
that gambling took one-eighth
of Keesler's $4.000.000 monthly
payroll; gambling losses caused
two Keesler officers to commit
suicide, and that the city of
Biloxi collected "fines" ranging
from $12.50 to $15 each on an
estimated 1.242 slot machines.
- Captain Nick 8tam. Keesler
Kublle information officer, re-
lated four letters today of cor-
respondence between Senator
Johnson and Secretary of the
Air Force Thomas K. Finletter
which showed the Senate com-
mittee was gathering evidence
on the Biloxi gambling situation
as long ago as last April.
The letters, however, stated
that the Air Force was power-
less to correct the situation.
An a letter dated July 3. 1051
from Secretary Finletter to Sen-
ator Johnson, the Air Force
secretary, said:
"The gambling activities so
prevalent in the Biloxi area are
conducted in violation of Mis-
sissippi State law. Their control
Is a matter for civilian law
enforcement agencies and Is
beyond the jurisdiction of the
Air Force.
"In an effort to correct the
existing situation, the Air
Force officials have conferred
with all levels of government
in Mississippi having jurisdic-
tion over the situation. These
conferences have produced no
substantial diminuation of
"The onlv action that could
be taken by the Air Force with
relation to these off-base ac-
tivities would be to place off
limits to militan* personnel all
establishments where gambling
Is conducted.
"As practically all establish-
ments In the area have gamb-
ling of one sort or another, such
action would be impracticable.
"This department will wel-
come any assistance that can
be rendered with relation to
this case by your subcommittee
or members of Congress," the
letter said.
Senator Hunt said he would
submit a "very critical report"
of the Illicit gambling-liquor
situation to the Senate com-

he paid $700 a month In "fines"
to the police chief of Biloxi.
McEerchern said that the
"fine" was $12.50 a month on
each of the 64 machines he had
in circulation and that he paid
cash to Chief Earl Wetzel, with-
out getting receipts.
Wetzel testified later that the
$12.50 figure was set by Biloxi
Mayor R. Hart Chlnn, who also
had been subpoenaed. Wetzel
said "I turn In every dime col-
lected to the city treasury."
"This is entered on our
books as fines against fictiti-

police chief testified.
Another witness, Curtis P.

him about his "fines" due.
