government has demanded specific information from
Communist Hungary as to exactly how, when and where
the four captive United States Air Force fliers will be '
released if their $120,000 "ransom" is paid.
A State Department official said the United State*
is still short of a few details on how the exchange of
money for men would work.
A Hungarian military court Sunday fined each of
the four $30,000, or three months imprisonment, for il-
legally crossing the Hungarian border Nov. 19 when their
C-47 got lost on a flight from Munich to Belgrade.
Campaigns were under way in the United States to-
day to pay the $120,000 by publicly-raised funds.
While praising the spirit of these campaigns a State
Department official said they did not fit on in with the
government's plans for liberating the captives.

, Lawrence Olivier and Vivien Leigh turned down SSO.SSO for s
une-time one-hour appearance on teevy... Transplanting their
"Cleopatras" from London to Broadway involved shipping more
than ;., ions oi scenery. -They witnessed "Top Banana" the
other nigiu and went backstage to meet Phil Slivers, the star,
who embraced Sir Laurence and quipped: "I hear you're in town
to do wit cieupatria bit".. the rol Is-and-fork dance on "The Hit
Parade" the other program was pirated right out of Chaplin's
"The Gold Hush". .The actors in "Don Juan in Hell" wear no
makeup or costumes. They beat the audience to the street and
cabs every night. Chas. Laughton's delightful candor: 'It's easy
to be modest when you look like I do."
Patti Page had the usual difficulties before scalling the
helgnis. Bul m ihe year ending she had nine starlght recording
clicks.. .The teevy science-fiction series called "Out There" rates
a qod lor skipping gory mayhem...It hasn't a single murder.
They realize enndren are watching... What makes a star twinkle?
Set Julie Harris' superformance In "I Am a Camera." Makes you
laugh and cry... "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" won a majority of
okay notices. It wound up with a $125.000 deficit.. .New Yorkers
artr still chuckling over Mrs. Tyrone Power's retort on a teevy
show. They asked her: "What did Tyrone say to you on your
lat meeting?" The appalled Mrs. Power gasped: "I don't think
I should say that over the air!". ..Modern Screen reports: "Men
like. Lana because she is honest, forthright and witty." There are
at-east two other reasons.
. "The River," a movie featuring tall-forehead artistry, is a
corr. inercia i aand). it is now rated among the top dozen mints...
Rid Skelton's gag-bustlers have terrific memories. They had him
say: "He loves the ground she walks onbecause she owns the
property," which is from the "Sou nils-in-the-Night" files...
* ienry III," the iilm, revived on teevy), is peppered with sinful
knockers that wouldn't be okayed by the H'wood censors today...
Danny Thomas in I'll See You My Dreams" has the gift for pathos
as well as the knack for nonsense.. .An episode in "Son of Pale-
face" will show Jane Russell disguised as a boy. OOh Boy.. .The
best of the new dial-tuner-outers Is the Yuletide ditty titled: "I
Tint Wait Til Quithmuch." (Omigadddd!)
Broadway remains the No. 1 Showcase for newcomers and
estaolished showfolks. Audrey Hepburn, who had bits In films
before scoring in "Oigi," was immediately signed by Movietown
for next year.. .Mario Lanza grossed over $1,000,000 last year. Not
long ago he go*. $2o per singing date. The movie mags accusing
him of being lantrumental rate the Dullltzer Prize...One of our
favorites from Bill Miller's Riviera is delighting Music Hall spec-
tators. Nanci Crompton. Her grace and spins areieomethlni to J
see...Janice Rule, the dolly-dilly. is the Joy-baHrin "Starnft."1'
Slje made the big leap to Hollywood from the Copa line...Noel
Coward's long-ago hit, "Conversation Piece," is now on record-
in{p>. The dialog still crackles and the melodies retain their tinkle
..."And So lo Sleep Again" may be one of the juke box pets
but it isn't one of ours.
You may hrve heard a new song titled "Cry." Johnny Ray's
vers i.n of .. on the bi.cs Is grand. The lad who wrote It Is named
Cborcnill 1 ohinik.ii, an unknown around Tune-Pan Alley. He Is
a Piti in .,n nijhi watchman at $42.50 per week.. .Daphne du
Alaurier's new book, "My Cousin Rachel," is not only the Literary
Guild selection for March but has been sold to the movies for a
record fee.. William FasUuier's upcoming dramatisation of his
novel, "Requiem for a Nun," is another light-hearted piece about
murder, Infidelity, etc. That's what the theater's for, you know.
Makes you forget the cares of the day.. .Movie critics keep saying
that French films are superior to ours. Mebbeso. Bat daring the
last year six French studios closed...Yon may have wondered
v.iy the I. S. keeps buying Russian movies. Business as usual,
old chap. Russia buys ours.
There has for months been
evidence in the State Dept.'s
own files proving that labor
leaders to whom 'It was Issuing
passports for conferences In the
Soviet Union were receiving
rubles from the Reds, money
for their trans-global Junkets
and briefing on their propa-
ganda missions which were
to defame America In the for-
eign press as well as among
millions of U S. workers.
This the State Dept. Ignored
and issued passports to 42
pro-Soviet union people, not just
14, as the short-handed and
underfinanced Senate Internal
Security Subcommittee disclosed
the other day.
One of these passports was
Issued only recently to William
L. Patterson, a former mid-
west Communist Party func-
tionary, whose assignment in
Paris was to tell the European
press that he was about to pre-
sent to the UN a petition
charging our government with
potting to kill off millions of
American Negroes in a deliber-
ate genocidal policy.
While there, by courtesy
of the U. S. State Dept.
Passport Division last year,
Patterson called the U. S.
"a criminal government"
which was threatening the
world with A and H Bombs.
In a Prague speech, he told
his official Communist au-
dience there that "It was a
very great pleasure" for him
to see the Communist na-
tions of Eastern Europe
"preparing for any event-
. uallty."
Yet he received a passport
again, merely for the asking,
although the Dept. of Justice
has placed the organization
which he heads, the Civil
Rights Congress, on its sub-
versive list.
This action of the Attorney
General was widely publicized.
But the State Dept., apparent-
ly, scarcely scans the daily
press.
During the Senate investi-

wept. -And there is nothing In criticism harder to convey than
oue's gratitude for that." He concludes: "I have nothing to do ex-
cept tnank Messrs. Logan, Rodgers and Hammersteln and climb
up from my knees, a little cramped from the effort of typing in
such an unusual position".. .The critics for "Stage" predicted
that each of its 20 songs would be an English hit.. ."Oklahoma"

over at ASCAP, the group of songwriters. He must now watch

MY LETTER TO SANTA....
24 Dec. 1951
Christmas Eve
The Mail Box Editor:
Dear Santa:
Tonight when the clock strikes twelve It will be Christmas
and everybody will be happy for we shall be commemorating the
birth of Christ. But I have exaggerated when I say everybody
will be happy because really everybody will not be happy just
a few, yes. Santa, just a few not all!
That is the reason why I am writing you this letter. But
this year I do not want any gifts Santa. It sounds strange
doesn't it Santa you with a bag full of gifts and I do not wish
any. Well, it Is this way. Around this part of the world and
In many other parts everything isn't the color of roses. The
little roses we have are full of thorns, big thorns!
I see little boys in rags and barefooted looking In at the
stores with their tiny eyes wide open, peeking through the glass
as If they wanted to get the toys out with tnelr innocent look!
No Santa, everybody is not happy. Those little boys will keep
on looking and they will wait, wait... wait...
And what about that other part of the world knawn as Ko-
rea; you must have heard it mentioned! Over there so far
away from home, from the Christmas tree, from the fireplace,
peace loving people like you and I are dying of cola and
maybe hunger wihle others are being killed by the cold lead of
battered guns while we celebrate. No Santa, I do not wish any
gifts this year!
Instead of gifts I ask you to illuminate the minds of the
people who are responsible for restoring peace on earth before
the bring it to destruction.
'They need gifts, they need help! Let us help them for if
things continue as they are they may not have many a "Merry
Xmas and a Happy New Year" like it says on the cards. Let us
buy the U. N. a big Christmas tree. And let us hang on the
fireplace stockings from every peace loving nation and may the
gnu L,e empty suells, and the blood of brave mennow gone!
Let us hope the blood was not spilled in vain, but at any
rat* let that be the last drop and no more! Let the lights on
the tree shine bright, very bright, in order that we may see the
roast to peace and prosperity very clearly. And the star, oh yes,
the star... let that be a white flag made with different threads
of very nation and the base that holds the tree be the prin-
ciple* of democracy.
Then, and only then, will we have a Merry Christmas, not
just for a few, but for all! Is this too much to ask?
Sincerely,
Boianda A. Castilla.
"How can you account for
the fact that the newspaper

hand now two or three news-
paper columns, written by men
who do not have access to the

publicized it "
"I don't know where they got
it," Nicholas retorted.
Well, his superiors did. I te-
ephoned them. I mailed ma-
terial to them, i knocked on
doors. They Just weren't hav-
ing any, thank you.

NEW YORK. The business of eating used
to be a dally adventure, instead of a distaste-
ful chore.
Aa I recall it, food used to be fun, not an ex-
periment in medical science, with the consumer's
good eye on a calorie chart and the weaker
peeper on self-destruction with a spoon.
My Grandma Adkins used to set a right fancy
table.
We would, for instance, have about three,
maybe four, kinds of bread.
We had crusty brown loaves she made her-
self. In the old wood-burner, and in those days
bread was a delight. Instead of a doctor's pre-
scription.
Miss Lottie's bread was better to taste than
her pound cake, and just as rich in eggst milk
and enthusiasm. She also turned out biscuits
so light they would blow away, and combread
that was as golden and fluffy as a blonde's
dream of marriage with a millionaire.
We had spoon-bread, too, and something call-
ed corn-dodgers that blended well with sowbelly
sauce.
There was always about three kinds of meat
on the table. a
You never saw the cloth bereft of a slab of
cold country ham, and at night and for break-
fast there was hot country ham with hominy
and red-eye gravy.
The main dish was mostly meat, real meat
steak or pot roast or pork tenderloin.
Venison and wild turkey were not strangers
to our house, nor were quail for breakfast or
squirrel stews and savory messes composed
largely of rabbit. Nor potatoes. Always pota-
toes.
The lima beans swam happily in a pool of
glistening juices from fat-back pork, and so did
the strlngbeans and the okra and the cabbage
Nobody fretted much about salads if you
wanted cold vegetables there were tomatoes with
a thick christening of sugar and vinegar, or
sliced cucumbers with rings of onion to keep'
them from being lonesome.
There were always several crocks of preserves
which the old girl got up herself, and always a
few saucers of pickles, watermelon pickles and
piccalilli and pickled onions and such truck.
Butter and gravies were stock items, not
curiosities.
When they fricasseed a hen for Sunday din-
ner we ate dinner in the daytime, then
the old fowl was surrounded with dumplings
and floated on a pool of butter. She came
apart when you touched her with a fork.
In the pantry there always lived a pound
cake, and a fruit cake, and a chocolate layer
cake, and a cocoanut cake, alde-by-slde to a
cookie crock and a brown doughnut jar.
These dainties, together with thickly smear-
ed slices of bread, were between-meal snacks
lor little growing boys. On the bread we smear-
ed butter and sugar, apple jelly and sugar, pea-
nut button and sugar.
In season we picked the big black figs off the
tree i In the backyard and drowned' them In
cream, which we extracted from the cow which
lived with us and which would have kicked and
bellered if anybody had mentioned powdered
skim milk in her presence.
We ate a wbolduwatermelon apiece and enough
green peaches, plan and grapes to kill off an
ostrich.
For dessert we dealt daintily with raisin-duff,
a concoction of fruited pastry over which was
poured something called "hard sauce."
We ate Ice cream made of cream and sugar
and peaches in an old-fashioned hand-crank
freezer, where the cranker rated the right to
lick the dasher of its iced accumulation of
cream-smothered peaches.
We drank coffee, with cream and sugar, and
tea, with cream and sugar.
Nobody sneered; too hard at deep-dish apple
pie, or deep-dish huckleberry pie, with cream
and crusted sugar.
We preserved peaches and pears and raspber-
ries and strawberries In a sugar sauce, and
smeared the result on that heavy-bodied, brown-
skinned bread.
A diet in those days was something you fed
sick people in hospitals.
They had not then discovered calories, to the
general distress of the nation.
People did not starve themselves wilfully, nor
were we beset with recipes for going hungry on
unpleasant fare.
A man ate what he liked when he was peck-
ish, and he ate whenever he was hungry. He
belched and took a nap after Sunday dinner,
which possibly stood off a predisposition to the
gastric ulcer.
We approached the board with anticipation
instead of dread. Food was not an enemy. -
You may go back to your special diets, friends.
I get more nourishment out of musty me-
mories than the modern sucker gets from a
well-rounded fare that is guaranteed to keep
him both thin and unhappy with the cook.
Churchill's Rabbit
By Stewart Alsop
"Winston is going to have to pull some sort
of rabbit out o his hat when he goes to Wash-
ington." This remark, or something like It, is
often heard in the Inner Tory circle.in London.
TO understand why Prime Minister Churchill
so badly needs a rabbit in his oddly shaped hat.
It is only necessary to consider the circum-
stances in which he is making this latest in a
series of historic journeys to the United States.
His country is, of course, again in a desperate
economic plight. In cold statistical terms, this
is the< most serious British economic crisis yet.
The loss of gold and dollar reserves in the
last four months of this year is likely to top
the billion dollar mark. This amounts to a sort
Of economic hemorrhage.
Somehow this outflow of the British economic
llfebtood the margin of safety on which the
whole vast sterling area operates must be
stopped.
Yet Churchill will arrive in Washington well
knowing that by now the recurrent British eco-
nomic crises are a very old story in the United
States.
The wolf which has been gnawing at the Brit-
ish door, and which has. seemed about to gnaw
through the door in 1947, 1949, and again now,
has been a very real wolf indeed. But even
when the wolf is perfectly real, the cry "wolf,
wolf," too often repeated, tends to lose its mean-
ing.
It has lost Its meaning even in Britain,
through too frequent repetition.
The British, moreover, are a proud people, and
when, In December, 1950, it was announced that
Britain could dispense with further American
economic aid, this had a profound and emotion-
al Impact on the British.
"We felt," as one of them said recently, "aa
though we could hold up our beads again.
For Churchill, newly installed as British pre-
mier, to ask for another large infusion of Amer-
ican aid would be a tremendously unpopular
act In Britain, however clear the need.
Yet somehow Churchill and Truman must find
means to glue the situation together again.
The main outlines of a temporary gluing oper-
ation are already fairly visible.' On the Ameri-
can side, what is required is that Britain be
given priority on dollar purchase of about 1 per
cent of the total American steel production.
Also required Is that somehow something like
$900,000,000 should be found for the British out
of already appropriated foreign aid funds.
On the British side, what is required is the
old, tired, familiar program of Crippslan auster-
ity this has, indeed, already started, with
Chancellor of the Exchequer R. A. Butler's bil-
lion dollar cut in Imports.
In such ways, with a little luck in the terms
of trade, the hemorrhage may be reduced to a
less-than-fatal trickle, and the British sterling
bloc should be able to bump along somehow for
a time.
Yet the fact is that this sort of gluing opera-
tion, which' has been repeated In one form or
another for a long time now, is a way of pre-
venting the patient from dying, without really
dealing with the disease.
The symptoms of the disease are world-wide,
and every year they become more visible.
Among the visible symptoms today, for ex-
ample, are the erosion of British power In the
Middle Bast, which has brought on a crisis with
which the United States has bean unable to
deal effectively: the increasing split between
American and British policy on a whole series
of Issues; and the sharp cutback in the Brit-
ish rearmament effort recently announced by
ChurehILL
Unless the disease Is somehow dealt with at
the source, the symptom are sure to get pro-
gressively worse.
Draw Pearson soys: Treasury Secretary Snyder has man-
aged to duck criticism; Unfair tax system' leads to
Communism; Snyder should have awakened two years
ago.
(Today Drew Pearson tells the story of tax-collecting com-
placency In the Treasury, in his series on how to pall wires
and not pay taxes.)
WASHINGTON. It is either a political miracle or a tribute
to his mousey personality that the man in charge of the bureau
where most of the tax scandals have occurred, Secretary of the
Treasury John Snyder, so far has managed to duck any large
volume of criticism.
His cabinet colleague, Attorney General McGrath, has been
the target for far more criticism though less tax finagling has
occurred In his Justice Department.
In contrast, John Snyder Is much closer to the tax picture,
much closer to President Truman, and has held office much
longer.
However, he has traveled on his official routine blissfully
ignorant or else indifferent to the fact that more crooked-
ness was occurring in his department than at any time since the
days of President U. S. Grant perhaps more than at any time
in history.
Personally Mr. Snyder Is an entirely honest man. The idea
that dishonesty would occur near him has and does shock him.
Yet he does not seem to realize that part of honesty is not
complacence but vigilance.
Secretary Snyder has been tenacious about the necessity of
paying higher taxes in order to pay for our huge arms program.
But he has not realized how he has knocked the slats out of
his own tax program by failing to collect taxes on an honest
basis.
For when people see tax-finagling at the top. tax-flnagllni
Is certain to spread at the bottom.
GRAVE EMBARRASSMENT
Snyder's failure may be due in part to a personal weakness,
which, according to some people, Isn't kosher to mention.
However, when a railroad engineer drinks on the Job he la
fired, when a motorist drinks while driving he is jailed especial-
ly If there has been a smash-up.
Therefore, when one of the 10 top members of government,
charged with collecting the nation's taxes with honesty and equal-
ity, drinks on the Job, the public Is entitled to know it.
For with Snyder at the wheel there has been a disastrous
smash-up in our tax-collecting system.
Unfortunately, Secretary Snyder's. periodic drinking not only
has caused moments of embarrassment before the governors of
the World Bank and at the French Embassy, but sometimes has
caused him to remain In bed away from his work for periods of
time.
It happens that collecting taxes Is a touch, day-and-night
Job, requiring vigilance and great strength of character almost
24 hours a day. It requires the eagle-eyed watchfulness that Hen-
ry Morgenthau became famous for.
And Secretary Snyder, with all his personal honesty and all
hU good Intentions regarding higher taxes, simply has not been
alert. In fact, he has been a dismal failure.
ENCOURAGING COMMUNISM
Both in St. Louis where he was a bank cashier, and In Wash-
ington, Secretary Snyder has been a political conservative He
would be horrified at the Idea that he had done anything to en-
courage Communism.
Yet history will probably show that, more than any other
cabinet officer, he has helped plant what could become a basic
cause for Communism.
For Snyder's unfair, unequal tax-collecting system is wiping
out the middle-class of Americans, the normal bulwark aginst
Communism. rtoaisu itannsMb,
What Secretary Snyder may not realize is that,, in Europe, the
countries with the unequal tax system are those showing the
greatest leaning toward Communism. ,
Outside of Russia, the two countries with, the greatest Com-
munist populations about one-third each are France and
Italy. .. L |, Jfj ..,...._
And in both countries the tax systems are notoriously unfair,
unequal and dishonest. In both countries, the wealthy pay few
taxes, the working class bear the chief burden.
What Secretary Snyder also may not realise Is the effect on
the American worklngman and the white-collar worker who read
abou; graft in our tax-collecting system today.
He i*e his own income taxes taken out in withholding taxes,
giving him no opportunity to cheat the government even If he
wanted to.
In contrast he reads in the newspapers that millions of dol-
lars In tax money are not being paid by those who can afford to
hire expensive lawyers and take key officials on junkets In Private
airplanes.
This Is what has encouraged Communism in Europe, and,
come a depression, it will encourage Communism here.
SERENE MR. SNYDER
The tragedy is that Secretary Snyder, complacent as he some-
times is, could have awakened to what was going on In his own
department two years ago. All* he had to do was read the news-
papers.
In column after column, beginning exactly two years ago this
month, i listed the amazing tax-fixes that were going on right
under Snyder's nose the big Guaranty Finance gambling case
in Los Angeles (Dec. 17, '49); the Gionotti and Oeorgetti cases
at San Francisco (Jan. 16. '50); the bribing of five revenue agenta

He could not have helped knowing that a racket was develop-

millionaires was growing up all through tax evasion.
He must have known, if he read the papers, that around 1,400

1,200 in the Treasury; that his Internal Revenue Bureau was go-

the technique of hiring tax lawyers and buying Influence.
The tax lawyers ask for conference after conference, haggle
with government attorneys, wear out their patience, finally get
a civil fraud penalty settlement, thereby saving their cheats;from
going to jail.
Thousands of cases have been settled that way.

The U. 8. Coast Guard reported
today that the Danish ship
Martin Carl had run "hard
aground" on the beach near
Cape Race. Newfoundland, but
the crew was "apparently In no

A search plane radioed to

head" a short distance off shore
three miles west of the Cape.
The pilot spotted persons on

from a nearby town, and a Coast
Guard spokesman said the crew
could be taken from the ship
easily If It is necessary to aban-
don the vessel which apparently
was leaking.

Woman Thinks
Her House Is Too
Close To Curve
MT. AIRY, N.C.. Dec. 36 (UP)
Mrs. Robey Culler thinks her
house is Jlnxed.
The house, built near a curve
on the highway. Is a favorite
target of trucks that take the
curve too fast and come crashing
Into her front yard.
"I dont know when I'm liable
to wake up and find a trailer In
bed with me," Mrs. Culler said.
The state put up posts on the
curve.
"They kept knocking the posts
down faster than they could put
them up," Mrs. Culler said.
One car ran off and knocked
part of the front porch off. The
driver paid for the damage.
Recently a truck crashed Into
the yard and overturned its car-
o of eggs. The next month a
ruck did the same thing with a
load of candy bars. The next
month came a truck with eggs
again.
"They gave me all I could eat,"
Mrs. Culler said. "I'm waiting for
a truck full of steaks."

Saiety plays are seldom made
in tournament bridge because
xtra tricks are usually Just as
important as making the con-
tract itself. Today's nand shows
the exception to the rulebut it
has a surprise ending.
Ruth Sherman was the shrink-
ing violet who went to four rtearts
with the South hand. It was at
a crucial point In last year's mix-
ed pair championship, and Miss
Sherman decided that she needed
a good result, and she did win the
championship, so who can criti-
cise her bid?
West opened the king of spades
Bast followed with the seven
tad Miss Sherman dropped the
six. West glared at her suspicious-
ly, but Miss Sherman looked the l
very picture of Innocence, so West
continued with the ace of spades '
West realized he had made a
mistake, but he was still afraid
to break a new suit, so he contin-
ued with a third round of spades.
Miss Sherman won with the
ueen of spades and decided that
normal defense would take three
spades and a diamond against
any heart contract. Therefore
she was going to make sure of her
game contract by making a safe-
ty play m trumps.
The safety play is to cash dum-
my's king of hearts first. If only
small cards fall, declarer gets
back to her own hand with the
ace of clubs and leads a small
trump towards dummy's Jack.
This play gives up one trump
trick, to be sure, but It assures
the. contract against any 4-1
trump break. Later, on, the losing
diamond is discarded on dummy's
nine of spades.
The surprise twist came when
Misa Sherman led a tramp to
dummy's king. Bast's ueen fell.
Bow the rest of the hand was
easy. West eventually won a
trump trick, but declarer threw
her losing diamond on the nine
of spades and made her contract.
At most tables the opening lead
was the nine of clubs. This was
taken in the South hand, and the
Jack of hearts was immediately
finessed. Now declarer had to
lose two trump tricks, three
spades, and a diamond down
three.
PITTSBIIRGH, Dec. 26. (UP)
CIO president Philip Mur-
ray's decision to recall his steel
union's top policy makers for
two meetings here tomorro
raised hopes today that a
scheduled New Year's Day
strike of 650,000 steel workers
may be called off.
Murray scheduled meetings
of the united Steelworkers TJ-
nion's 36-man executive board
and its 170-member wage po-
licy committee following an ap-
peal from President Truman
for uninterrupted steel produc-
tion.
The president also said he
would use whatever powers the
laws allow to avert a strike
costly to the nation's defense
effort.
The wage policy committee
most probably will hear a re-
commendation from Murray to
withdraw the order for a N*w
Years Day strike and argue
its demands for an 18-1/2 cents
an hour wage increase befcre
the Wage Stabilization Board.
Murray today would not com-
ment on tomorrow's meetings.
But since there has been no allowed to
wage offer from steel produc- would have
ers, observers pointed out, the
only logical reason for recalllnir
the union's policy makers was
to reconsider its strike order
mlt the contract dispute to thi I
WSB, as a number of basic steel
producers already have done oil
it can stand by Its decisin]
not to work without a contract!
Should the union stick to its
original stand, the President
was believed Intent on lnvok-
ing the Taft-Hartley law and I
seeking an 80-day court injunc-
tion against a walkout
Observers were optimistic. I
however, that the union would I
heed the President's plea not
to strike since it had declared
previously it can prove Industry
could absorb a wage increase
without straining price con-
trols.
Washington observers believ-
ed the wage board could legal-
ly approve most of the union
demands under existing pro-
cedures and price officials have
indicated they feel the industry
doesn't need price hikes to cov-
er a wage increase.
However, the industry has
said repeatedly it would not
increase wages without a com-
pensating hike in steel prices,
the union's strike call is
stand, production
to be halted Frl-
fumaces to be
cooled by New
The
nlon.
It can either agree
pressure was on the
to
day. for the
banked and
Year's Day.
A strike would cause a loss
of 2,000,000 tons of raw steel
u- a week, more than half of
j which is going for defense
sub- needs.

the edge over thel ropponents in
tonight's opening games of toe
Second Annual Junior CoUege
Basketball Tournament. The first
game will pit toe CHS team a-
galnst the potent Working Boys
outfit. This contest wUl start at
6:45 p.m. The second game will
find the Albrook team and toe
Cristobal Athletic Association as
the combatants.
AU games In this gala basket-
ball festival will take place at
the Balboa Gym, and the price
of admission is 50 cents for
games tonight, Thursday and
Friday, and 75 cents for the fin-
als on Saturday night. This is
the biggest basketball event of
its kind held in the Canal Zone,
and promises to treat the fans to
some of the best basketball play-
ed locaUy.
Cristobal, the defending cham-
pions, will have their hands full
with the Working Boys. Many
observers feel that the Working
Boys will knock off the Tigers,
but not this corner. Big guns for
toe Tigers wUl be Arnold Man-
ning, Bob Bailey, and Skippy An-
derson. The Working Boys will
counter with such proven per-
formers as Noel Gibson, Bob
Gibson, and Ed Capalbo.

action.

rine Corps Commandant. Gen.

he didn't like the situation one
bit, "' '
the order to Waldeck's Com-
manding Officer In San Diego.

San Diego reported back to
