Troops Hold
Arctic Party
At Gunpoint
LONDON, Fab. 4 (UP).Argentine troops allegedly
fired machineguns over the heads of a British naval
landing party at Hopa lay, Graham Island, Antarctica,
during the weekend.
The British were forced to return to their ship. Brit-
ain today handed a protest to the Argentine Government.
Official newspapers in Buenos Aires have ignored
the incident The independent La Nacin and the Eng-
lish-language "Herald" published the news without com-
ment.
The British Antarctic relief
ship John Blscoe entered the Bay
on a routine visit. As the landing
party stepped ashore, Argentine
naval forces fired the warning
shots over their heads, accord-
ing to a British government rep-
resentative at Port Stanley in tbe
Falkland Island*.
The Argentines surrounded the
British landing party and order-
ed the member back to the ship
at gunpoint. The Argentine base
leader said he had been Instruct,
ed to resist any landing attempt,
but Argentine offtclals said lain
that the teer had taken his
instructions too literally and had
"acted-'to error." .
Britain and Argentina both
claim possession of areas In the
Antarctic and the conflicting
claims long have been a cause of
friction and disputes between the
two countries. 1
The British have not used their
Hope Bay base, at the tip of the
Palmer Peninsula, since 1949.
The peninsula, also known, as
Oraham Land, is a part of the
Falkland Island dependencies
claimed by both Britain and Ar-
gentina. Trumt

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 (UP)
Harold L. Ickes received In
death today what he never ask-

Wt of kind words.
i|Me, -who was Beccetary of
ntftar for IS years, died last
night In Emergency Hospital. He
had been suffering from arthri-
tis for months, and his 77-year-
old heart finally gave out.
President Truman, who once
felt the lash of Ickes' sharp
tongue, was one of the first to
pay tribute to the outspoken
New Dealer, who was known In
admiration, rather than irony,
as "honest Harold."
"Although he was oftern Iras-

Truman said, "his sharpest

tegrity. He was a true patriot

Toddler, Car Roll

Eye Gels Scratched
An American couple of Gam-
boa are probably feeling mighty
lucky today that their baby only
has a cut over his eye.
.And maybe, because of what
happened yesterday, parent
hereabouts will keep a closer
check on what can happen to a
young child and an automobile.
It ail happened yesterday aft-
ernoon When Mr. and Mrs. ver-
non Cross Whltehead parked
their Plymouth sedan on the east
bank of the Canal near the Pe-
dro Miguel Locks to watch a ship
transiting the Canal.
Their 17-month-old son, David,
was left in a seat sling In the
front seat, while his parents
stood outside nearby.
Suddenly the father noticed
the car start to roll towards the
edge of the bank, but his attempt
to stop It was unsuccessful.

Kittenish Seamen
Tumble Into Canal;
Returned To Deck
Two playful seamen who
claim they fell off the deck
of the SB Wesleyan Victory
as It was transiting the Ca-
nal yesterday afternoon south-
bound near Paraso, were both
happy to return to their ship
an boor later.
According to a watchman at
the Paraso dynamite maga-
zine, he saw two men jump
into the water. They swam to
the West Bank and he ap-
prehended them.
Investigation revealed that
Jose Nunez, 18-year-old Mexi-

BOSTON Up In Dept. 15-
B they are making 57 mm guns
for the kids In Korea when
word came to Johnny Alcardl
that he and his friends were
through in two hours fired
just two days before Thanks-
giving, right after Frank Cush-
man had carried one of his
six youngsters to the hospital
add Charlie McCarthy's wife
was heading home with her
eleventh baby.
That's not wfcrt made John-
ny see red. Seeins Reds was
what made Johnny sear deep
inside.
For Johnny Aicardi and
his friends were the anti-
Communist leaders in this
plant, a handful of men
out of the 350 turning out
guns and field telephone
equipment for the Army,
vital inverters and classi-
fied material for the Navy
and motors and transpor-
tation parts. All so we
could win in Korea.
Last September, Johnny Ai-
cardi and his friends learned-
that their national union, the[
notoriously pro-Soviet United
Electrical Workers (UE), in I
convention In New York, called
for a pro-Russian type cease
fire in Korea, withdrawal of
all non-Korean troops, a glo-
bal peace conference, including
Sovletlzed China, and abolltlor
of atomic weapons all rlgh
out of the big mouth of Vlsh-
insky. .
This Johnny Alcardl and his
friends Just wouldn't take.
So they went through the
plant owned by the Holtzer-
Cabot Co. and got themselves
some anti-Communist candi-
dates to run against the lead-
ership of the union a lead-
ership which took its guidance
from such UE national officials
as Don Tormey.
Tormey refused to deny be-
fore a Congressional committee
that he was a Communist or
had ever planned the infiltra-
tion of New England's strate-
gic industries for the Commies.
as charged by an FBI under-
cover agent.
Tovarlch Tormey was the UE
representative who signed the
union contract between Holts-
er-Cabot and the pro-Soviet
UE's affiliate for years.
What kind of American work-
ers are these who would take
such guidance?
But. like I was saying, John-
ny Alcardl and some SO others
were laid off by the company
shortly thereafter.
All perfectly legal, mind you.
And In accordance with the
department system of seniority.
That was the company's right.
Leaally correct. But morally?
That's the issue I want
to raise across this land. A
group of anti-Communist
working Joes are fired. You
don't hear about it. No one
calls protest meetings. No
ads appear "paid for by a
group of believers in civil
rights." N o indignation '
committees. Why? Because
they are not famous pro-
Communist actors, movie
writers or so-called intel-
lectuals?
Because Johnny and his
friend are the "little people"?
Aren't those great big defend-
ers of civil liberties for lefties
supposed to be dedicated to the
"little people-?
Well, there's no more silence
after this. Let's get It on the
record.
Over 30 men are fired. Among
them are six leaders of the
anti-Communist group. They're
laid off In a plant turning out
classified materiel and ord-
nance for the Army and Navy,
according to the company pre-
sident, In a conversation with
this writer.
The others are working. In
fact, they're working overtime.
They're putting in 45 and SO
hours a week. There's overtime

Traitor's Luck
By BOB RUARK

NEW YORK. We may as well give up, it
certainly seems, on crime and punishment as
ppllcable to Miss Judith Copln, the home
grown spy, who has successfully ducked a long
prison term for coming up to three years.
Now, the saddled-shoed Mata Harl from
Brooklyn has Just heard the glorious tidings
that the Supreme Court won't touch her with
a ten-foot tort, which means no jail for Judy
!oi spmetlme, If not forever. _,
There is no doubt that the'Little clerk work-
ed With Valentine Gubltchev, a Russian engi-
neer, who was employed by the United Nations.
Both got nabbed by the FBI, and Judy stood
trial twice, to be convicted twice. Both she and
Gubltchev got 15 year.
Instead of shooting the Russian, or socking
is ft valiant servant of his fatherland, since ne
bets his life for his country.
I presume we have our own people asking
questions and sneaking blueprint* In strange
places I hope so, anyhow.
But we should have Jailed Gubltchev, and
from a standpoint of high moral Indignation,
we might justifiably have shot little Judy from
Brooklyn.
A traitor to His ov/h country is seldom, If ever,
trapped by circumstances beyond personal eon*
trol. Treason is entered With Intelligence and
forethought of the penalty involved, and la alto-
gether a cynical, callous crime for personal gain
or evil principle.
Copln knew what she was doing, and why.
A Wilful traitor actively contemplates or ln-
hfm away In the freezer, we let him trickle back -actively condones mass murder, in the thousands
to the Soviet with a basket of bon voyage fruit. *nd even millions, of his own people.
Judy's freedom rests on ft technicality,
court said her guilt was as obvious as a
In the eye, but that her arrest was made under
Illegal conditions.
The other court said her arrest was okay, but
she rated a new day in court, If she could prove
that the FBI built at least ft portion of the
case via tapped wires.
One. A traitor Is a potential murderer and jailer
poke of his whole land, sine* every little piece of
sedition contributes to the net plan of eventual
overthrow.
That Is th* way you hav* to sec Judith Copln
to make her worthy of a drastic sentence not
as a silly girl who got sucked into ft foreign
governments web of Intrigue, but as ft vicious,
ourposefu* enemy of her own nation.
In neither conviction was there Indication of
actual innocence of intent, or action by the fair
Judith.
8b here you have the unusual situation In-
volving a clearly defined domestic spy, which Is
to say traitor, who Is caught dirty-handed by
the law, while In cahoots with a foreign agent,
her guilt is never In doubt only the technical-
ities of h*r apprehension keep her free to seryt
U an object lesson of democracy at work.
She has married, while out on ball, and, last
1 heard, was about to become ft mother. If
these be the w&ges of sin and I cannot think
of ft more dreadful sin than treason then we
must be Asking for abuse, when the opposition
catches some of our people with the wrong pa-
pers In their pockets.
It Is Impossible to grow very angry or in-
dignant about Judy's partner in espionage, be-
cause Gubltchev was merely performing at ft
loyal member of his country's spy system.
From the standpoint of high patriotism, a spy
And now we have patted her on th* head for
fermanent, it seems, as the Suprema Court re-
uses the Department of Justice's request for a
further trial of a twice-convicted spy.
I doubt if she will serve her sentence, or ven
stand before another Jury. She goes free as an
advertisement that our home-grown benevolence
condones high treason.
And Gubltchev went back to advertise the
softness of our country In dealing with foreign
espionage agents.
In the meantime, to show the growing con-
tempt of our softness, we have had Robert
Vogeler, newsman Bill Oatls, and a crew of
American filers Imprisoned for ransom by the
satellites.
We have a great record to date. 'We don't
Iftll our own traitors, we turn loose other peo-
ple's spies, and we meekly pay ransom lor our
own Imprisoned nationals abroad.
It makes you Just a little bit sick. ,

KefauveKs Coonskin
By Petci Edson
^mhy WSHINfiTOH
MERRY-GO- ROUND.
Drtw Pearson Says: Sen. Kefauver stays in Ohio primary
with lady secretary; Military waste revealed in Mo-
rocco; President Truman almost faced military court-
martial.
WASHINGTON. The vehemence of the undercover "Truman-
Ite" drive to stop Kefauver Is Illustrated by the way wires were
pulled backstage among Democratic leaders in Ohio.
Ohio primary law requires delegates l o bu pledged both to a
ilrst and second choice.
Originally, therefore, Murray Lincoln, statesman-like head
of the Ohio farm bureau, was offered the No 2 spot on the Ke-
fauver ticket*
But Lincoln declined when pressure ington. He was told he would have to resign Lis advisory post on
the State Department's Point 4 program so Lincoln said no.
Following this, anti-Kefauver strategists in Ohio conceived
the idea of volunteering a top Democrat for the Kefauver ticket,
then having him suddenly send a telegram to the Ohio secretary
of state on Feb. 6, the filing day, saying he was unable to go
along with some of the Kefauver delegatos and therefore pulling
his name off the ticket.
This would have left the Senator ircm Tennessee high and
dry. It would have invalidated all Kefauver petitions and taken
hint out of the Ohio primary altogether
Also it would have made him look l'ke a rank amateur-not
lu ft class with party professionals.
However, Tim Hogan, Kefauver's Ohio manager, got wind of
this sly strategy, and after a hurried conference with Congress-
man Wayne Hays, it was decided to take no chances.
Instead of a big shot as No. 3 on me Kefauver ticket, th*
name of Marie Harrington Krlm of Martliu Ferry. Ohio, was
inserted.
So Ohio Democrats, when they vote In the primary, will cast
their ballots for Kefauver and a iady win. while completely un-
known, happens to be the personal secretary to Congressman
Hays and can be trusted.
NOTE: Opposition to Kefauver in Ohio came from the
"Trumanltes" those around Truman who passionately want
him to run again rather than the Presldert himself.
Actually the President has expressed friendly sentiment to-
ward the Tennessee Senator, even gave him suggestions during
their recent talk on how to conduct his campaign.
Among other things, he suggested that not much was to be
gained by featuring Kefauver's victory over the Crump machine,
tlso warned him to avoid early contacts with scaly people, said
that his geographical location, Tennessee meant that he should
win the support of the South,
MILITARY WASTE
The full scandal hasn't been told, but three U. 8. lr bases in
French Morocco have suddenly been abandoned in th* middle of
construction.
Over one million dollars had already been spent on the three I
bates when suddenly the Pentagon changer", its mind and de-
cided not to build them.
The Senate Preparedness Committee is quietly investigating!
who is responsible for this expensive boner.
One report is that the airstrips weren't built on solid ground I

Moscow that Marshal Stalin has secretly visited Russian ship

cuses his admirals have been giving for Russia's failure to turn]
out a single new battleship since 1939.

TRUMAN'S NEAR COURT-MARTIAL
The nation's commander-in-chief. Harry 8. Truman, is Just
little proud of the little-known feet that he was once almost
court-martialed.
The story came out the other day wnen Congressman Dan
Flood of Pennsylvania called with other colleagues at the White
House.
"Tell them about the time I came to the rescue of an rtlller_
unlt from your home town of Wllkea-Barre during World War I,"
Truma nsuegested to Flood during their talk.
"That's right," said Flood. "I was too voung to be there, but
Wilkes-Barre vets who fought in that act'on still talk about it.
They were pinned down by German artillen' fter crossing a
river in France and it looked like they were done for.*'
Th* Pennsylvanlan went on to relate how Truman, then a
field artillery captain, swung his outfit over in the nick of time
and "knocked hell out of the Germans."
"You're still a hero In my home town adned Fiood. "I guest
that's one battle you'll never forget."
"Indeed I won't forget It." emphasized the President.
"I was almost court-martialed. My cmmsnling officer was
furious at me for firing out of my sector witnout permission.
That wftt the worst bawling-out anybody ever gave me."

WASHDjiGTON (NEA) The real ttory on
Estes Kefauver's original coonskin cap has now
been revealed by George M. Clark, president of
the Pioneer National Bank of Chattanooga,
Tenn.
This seems to be a key Issue In the Kefauver
campaign for the Democratic nomination for
President, so It might as well be recorded for
history, like the cherry tree myth.
According to Clark, he furnished the cap. He
got It, he says, from a young engineer on U. 8.
Army Corps of Engineers river boat, who was
stationed at Cocela, Ark. Clark doesn't remem-
ber the man's name.
So If he ever reads this, here's hit chance to
step forward and become famous.

campaigning in the state. He called up Clark
and asked to borrow the coonskin cap.

Edison's Tools, Cigar Butt
Treasured In Ford's Village
DEARSON, MlCh.. Feb. 4 (UP)
If Thomas Alva Bdlson were
alive today, he could It at his
original work bench, pick up a
cigar he lighted In 1829. artd work
with the same tools he used In
60 unsurpassed years o Inven-
tion.
A material record of America s
greatest Inventor, who died Oct.
18, Ml, la painstakingly pre-
served here at Henry Fords 250-
acre Greenfield Village. Most of
the objects lie where Edison left
them.
Ford, who as a young man drew
much encouragement from Edi-
son In his work on the "horseless
carriage." acquired thfi Inven-
tor's entire Menlo Park, N. J. lab-
oratory and transported It here.
Brick by brick, chair by chair
and chemical bottle by chemical
bottle, all four buildings and
their contents are arranged here
exactly as they were In Menlo
Park.
The boarding house of Mrs.
Sarah Jordan, where Edison's as-
sistants lived, stands across the
road from the original laboratory
building. It was the first home
ever lighted by electricity.
Edison's first visit to Dearborn
was In 1928. the 50th anniversary
of the Invention of the Incan-
descent electric light. ,
Charles Matzel, curator of the
Edison buildings, recalls the
event.
"After he had shown Edison
around, Mr. Ford asked him If
everything was Just right," Nat-
zel related. "Edison said the
whole layout was 99 9-10th pel-
cent correct.
Mr. Ford was worried. He ask-
ed right away what tenth of a
per cent was Incorrect.
Document Faker
Errs In Triplicate
SPRINGFIELD. 111.. Feb. 4 (UP)
There Is no substitute for ac-
curacy. Id a display of faked and
forged documents ki the muse-
um of state archives building
there was a document which was
proved false because:
1The watermark on the pa-
per vas not designed until 15
years after the claimed date of
the document,
2The typewriter used was not
made until 31 years later.
3The type of paper fastener
used was not manufactured un-
til 10 years later.
"Edison replied, 'our place was
never this clean.'"
It was on this first visit that
Edison left a cigar butt while
walking through one of the
buildings. After Edison left. Ford
ordered that the cigar never be
moved. It has never been.
Also at the 1929 celebration,
Edison, who had 1,033 inventions
patented from 1868 to 1928. made
by hand a model of the first In-
candescent light.
The light, made with a car-
bonized sewing thread for a fil-
ament, still burns.
Tucked away In a corner of
his laboratory Is Edison's first
patented Invention, an electro-
graphic vote recorder, and a flop
as far as immediate acceptance
was concerned.
Edison took the machine to
Washington in 1868 but con-
gressmen were unimpressed.
"Nice machine you have there,"
they told him, "but how can we
filibuster if all vou have to do is
press a button?"

Braised Tomatoes
Worry Scientists
RIVERSIDE. Calif., Feb. 4 (UP)
Because a costly percentage of
Southern California's fall and
winter tomato crop has been
reaching eastern markets in con-
dition better for throwing than
for eating, -the entire picking -
handllng-shlpplng process now Is
under study.
Plant pathologists of the Uni-
versity of California experiment
station here are trying to save
farmers' dollars In one of South-
ern California's big "money"
crops, and they have found a
number of reasons for the voor
condition of the crop at eastern
points.
At the green-rloe stage when
tomatoes are picked for ship-
ment to the East, the fruit par-
ticularly stem end, bruise easily.
From these bruises, disfigur-
ing Injuries and various types of
fungus decays develop, making
the tomatoes unsalable by the
time they reach the markets.
Handling the mature but green
tomatoes is a complicated pro-
cess. Prom the field, boxes of to-
matoes are trucked to the pack-
ins house. There they are dump-
ed, run through a water rinse,
then over a grading table, next
through a hot water chlorine
bath, then a water rinse and a
water repellant pray. Then they
are brush and fan dried, waxed,
and eraded for size.
After shipment east in rlfrig-
erator cars, during which the
tomatoes take on color they are
araded again before sale. Decays
not visible at picking time and
during the packing house pro-
cessing show up then.
Testa show blistering does not
occur on tomatoes which have
reached the pink stage as the
skin and flesh of the fruit be-
comes more resilient and able to
take more shock In handling.
Much loss also can be prevent-
ed by changes In field handling
methods, the Riverside research
disclosed. Standard field boxes,
said Dr. Mlddleton take a heavy
toll.
He said the greater the bottom
area of a box. the greater the
loss. The researchers recom-
mended lining boxes with cor-
rugated board and using boxes
with a smaller bottom area.

Animal Noises Alike In Other Tongues
CHICAGO. Feb. 4 (UP)Dr. Austin L. Rand, curator of birds

Scientists Seek
Absolute Zero
TORONTO, Ont., Feb. 4 (UP)
Scientists at the McLennan
Laboratory work alongside the
coldest place on earth, a room
where the temperature is mi-
nus 458 degrees, Just one degree
above absolute zero.
Absolute zero is the point
where scientists expect all ele-
ments to solidify and all atoms
to stop their incessant motion.
Studying elements at such low
temperature may hasten the
advent of the rocket ship.
Prof. Kenneth Robert Atkins,
on loan to the University of
Toronto from Cavendish La-
boratory at Cambridge, says
metals show amazing charac-
teristics in the deep freeze
room.
The application of the low-
temperature research In metals
to' the construction of space-
ships or rocket ships, will mean
an earlier debut for those
"things of the future," he said.
Prof. Atkins accepted an as-
sociate professorship in physics
at the University of Toronto to
do his research with liquid he-
lium, a non-inflammable gas
v/ith twice the density of hydro-
gen.
Atkins and A. C. Hallett, a
young Toronto physicist, hope
to produce their own liquid he-
lium In quanltty for research
purposes. At one degree above
absolute zero, the atoms com-
posing all elements slow down
their tremendous speeds to
comparatively nothing but still
flash around at the speed of a
jet plane or the speed of sound.
The 31-year-old British phy-
sicist and his young Canadian
colleague work In the labora-
tory with ultra-modern equip-
ment.
The process of liquifying he-
lium calls for successive use of
liquid air and liquid hydrogen,
also produced at the laboratory.
The helium, gaseous until it
reaches the minus 458 degree
mark, is stored in a flask of
liquid nitrogen, which In turn
is surrounded by a vacuum
flask.

The Panam Canal might be-

Need For Steel fcrapln Defense Explained
NEW YORK. Feb. 4 (UP)
You're hearing a lot these days
about steel scrap. Why?
Steelways magazine answers
the questions. Using scrap, says
Steelways, is like using a pre-
mlxed pancake flour to make
Dancakes most of the hard work
has been done In advance. In
open-hearth steelmaking. which
calls for a charge consisting
roughly of 50 per cent scrap and
50 per cent pig iron, the already
refined scrap cuts down on the
tottl time needed for refining.
Scrap serves another impor-
tant function. Today high grade
reserves of raw materials In the
United States are diminishing.
I Normally more than four toas of
coal, iron ore. limestone and oth-
er raw materials are needed to
make one ton of pig iron.
Whenever a ton of scrap can
be used In place of a ton of pig
iron, more than four tons of raw
materials are saved.

AFolL Urges Steps
To Half Reactionary
Policies In Japan
MIAMI Beach. Pla., Feb. 4
(CTJP)The executive council
of the American Federation of
Labor today urged ratification
of the Japanese Peace Treaty
and called for decisive action
to halt an "evident return to
old time reaction" in Japan,
fostered by the biggest busi-
ness interests."
The 15 AFL Union chief tans,
meeting here in an Annual mid-
winter council session, said in a
prepared statement that a free
Japanese people can "play a
vital role in the economic de-
velopment and prosperity of the
Orient." ?
The council warned, however,
that peaceful objectives cannot
be attained in Japan "if the
labor, agrarian and social re-
forms Introduced during the
first period of occupation will
be abolished or whittled away."
"A Japan in which labor does
not have the right to organize,
bargain collectively or strike lor
decent working and living con-
ditions, in which the toiling
peasants are landless, will be an
undemocratic, a reactionary, a
militarist Japan."
"It is in this light," the coun-
cil said, 'that we deplore the
numerous undemocratic mani-
festos recently evidenced
in Jaran and strongly urge that
decisive action be taken to halt
this dangerous development be-
fore it is too late."
To maintain the "great pres-
tige and confidence among the
plain people of Japan" which
America now enjoys, the AFL
heids urged the U. S. govern-
ent to insure protection of the
Ijhts of Japanese laborers and
reserva the agrarian reforms
i ed since the end of World
..as il

Mid-Winter College Grads
CHICAGO, Feb. 4 (UP)Mid-
winter college graduates can
jracticaliy take their pick of
obs with engineering students
getting as many as 10 to 20 of-
fers, a survey showed today.
A check of doseas of cal-
lages across the country re-
vealed that engineering gra-
duates or science students can
start at from $300 to gftftft a
month, and others won't do
much worse.
Some graduates were reported
turning down anything under
$250 a month.
College Job placement officers
said the demand Is probably the
greatest of all time, spurred by
the defense effort and the draft.
'The situation has never been
as good as this and I don't think
it will ever be as good again."
said C. H. Hauffmann, place-
ment director at the University
of Virginia.
"The demand is greatest in
the technical field, but there
is no field in which there is not
a great demand," Kauffmann
said.
Normally the colleges gra-
duate only a handful of students
at mid-semester, and some have
dropped the practice.
But the Job situation now was
regarded as an Indication of op-
portunity when the schools pour
out thousands in June.
Already employer represen-
tativesas many as six a day
are calling at university
placement offices, ready to
give the graduate almost any-
thing he asks.
The expanding defense effort
has put a premium on engineers
of all kinds as well as- chemists
and physicists. These graduates
get an average of 10 to 20 of-
fers to choose from.
The University of Buffalo will
have 11 engineers among its 193
mid-winter graduates. All the
engineers ware signed up
months ago. They had a total
of 200 offers.
Besides the defense' effort,
elective service was adding
to the urplu* of Jobs by draft-
ing many graduate* aa they
leave the campus. Many firms
articutariT larger enea
were reported hiring men re-
gardless of their draft status,
with a view toward re-em-
ploylng them when they leave
service.
A dissent came from the Uni-
versity of Washington, where
officials said cut in draft cuotas
are making Jobs a little scarcer
than a year ago.
But in the general rush for
graduates, accountants ran a
close second, with business ad-
ministration students and gov-
ernment majors also command-
ing many offers.
The coeds were not neglected,
with secretaries much Th de-
mand. The girls could get about
$200 a month to tart as secre-
taries.
Harvard noted an increas-
ing interest among its gra-
duates for tovernment work,
where starting salaries may
to as high as Sl^ftft a year,
larvard said jaaUfled gra-
duates in most fields "can
practically write their own
ticket."
At a typical large engineering
school. Carnegie Tech, 200 firms
have put in bids for graduates
and the school expects to hear
from a total of 700.
Carnegie Tech said the aver-
age starting wage would be $325
a month, compared with $800
last year.
Georgia Tech said some firma
were lining up now the students
they hope to hire 10 months
from now.
Demand also was reported
brisk for teachers and agricul-
tural specialists. Salaries in
non-mechanical fields may
range down to $225.
The University of Kansas said
lt had 25 Jobs for Journalism
graduates and no one to fill
them.

LOS ANGELES. Feb. 4 (UP)
A jury of eight women and four
men was picked today with sur-
prising speed In Federal Court to
try 15 "second-string Commun-
ists on charges of conspiring to
teach and advocate overthrow of
the government by force and
violence.
Selection of the Jury had been
expected to take weeks, if not
months,.
When the Jury was picked the
battery of five defense attorneys
and William Schneiderman. 45,
acting head of the U.S. Com-
munist Party who is defending
himself, had exercised 16 of 25
peremptory challenges allowed
them.
The prosecution had used up
three of Its six challenges.
There was a dead silence In
the court when the eight men
and four women were picked.
Federal Judge William C. Ma-
tties asked if there were any fur-
ther challenges.
None came forth and he an-
nounced the Jury would stand
and ordered attorneys to begin
selecting four alternates.
Schneiderman s request that
he be allowed to defend himself
came as a surprise to the court
and the judge anxiously asked
him: "Are you a lawyer?"
When Schneiderman admitted
he was not. the Judge advised
him of his Constitutional right
to be represented by counsel and
said if a question of finances
were involved the court would
appoint an attorney for him.
"I believe I can best defend
myself." Schneiderman replied.
"It Is not a matter of finance."
Defense Attorney Ben Margo-
11s, chief spokesman for the five
lawyers defending the admitted
Communists, advised the court
that he and other members of
the defense law battery would
advise Schneiderman on "tech-
nicalities of the law."
The tiny courtroom which
seats but 125 persons was filled
with prospective Jurors, court
I attaches, lawyers and the press
and bailiffs excluded spectators,
I more than 100 of whom stood
outside in the corridor as the
trial opened.
The trial was regarded by tht
government as second in impor-
tance to the New York trial m
which 11 "top-flight" Commun-
ists were convicted last year.
The first juror to be excused
was Mrs. Katherlne McCreadle
who said she knew "Communists
are not loyal to our country."
She was followed quickly by
Henry P. Markin. a painter, who
said. "If I were on trial I would
riot want a Jury made up of peo-
ple who feel the way I do about
Communists."
The defendants are Schneider-
man, Philip (Slim) Connollv,
Dorothy Ray Healey, Henry
Steinberg, Rose Chernln Kus-
nlti. Frank E. Specter, Frank

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 (UP)
A House monopoly subcom-
mittee charged today that inter-
national price-fixing agree-
ments have inflated the cost of
wood pulp, chief ingredient of
newsprint, books and ft host of
other paper products.
At the same .time, the Mutual
Security Agency told a special
House subcommittee on news-
print that Economic Coopera-
tion Administration funds did
set cause Increased U. 8. ex-
ports of sulphur, another im-
portant newsprint ingredient.
The monopoly subcommittee
charged that American users
are faced with high prices main-
ly because a "Scandinavian pulp
cartel," representing mills in
Norway, Finland and Sweden,
conspired, to fix prices for pulp
sold within the United States.
The congressmen also said
there Is "hearsay evldnece" that
Canadian pulp producers en-
gaged In price-fixing activities
and that individual mills In
Sweden even attempted to get
U. 8. producers to Join lh sim-
ilar agreements.
The subcommittee said the
Scandinavian cartel was helped
In fixing prices by Its American
agents who, with other, or-
ganized the Association of
American Wood Pulp Importers.
"This association has dis-
cussed prices at its meetings, re-
commended uniform pricing
practices to its principals
abroad, and served as a vehicle
for transmitting the collective
pricing decisions of Scandina-
vian producers to their agents
in the United States," the re-
port said.
The subcommittee charged
that the association also tried
to prevent importation of any
paper from Scandinavia that
might disturb Its alleged price-
fixing activities.
While its evidence on Cana-
dian price fixing is "entirely
hearsay." the subcommittee
said, "lt nevertheless suggests
thst the Canadians have not
been guided by the broad prin-
ciples of the anti-trust laws in
! their dealings within the United
States."
As regards sulphur exports,
director T. L. Sweet of tht
mutual Security Agency's mat-
erials branch told the newsprint
subcommittee that increased
foreign purchases of U. S. sul-
phur began long before EGA
funds were being distributed
abroad to bolster the economies
of friendly, free nations.
Mystery Women
Sought As Murderess
(Continued frosn Pago I)
trist, Dr. Dean Archer, said Mrs.
Judd recenty boasted to other
inmates that "someone will help
me escape."
Dr. M7 W. Conway, hospital
superintendent, who vowed two
months ago he would never
escape again, blamed special
Cvileges she received for her
t flight.
There are no maximum secur-
ity wards for women at the hos-
pital.
Mrs. Judd was convicted of
murdering two friends, Agnes
Lee Rol and Nedvig samuelson,
while they were asleep. She dis-
membered the body of one with
scalpels belonging to her hus-
band, who was a physician and
who since has died.
She hipped the remains to
Los Angeles in trunks and was'
captured there after trying to
claim them.
Sentenced to hang for the
murders, she was Judged in-
sane and commltteed to the
state hospital in 1932.
One of Mrs. Judd's friends
here is Mrs. Ellen Brans, from
whom the redhalred murderess
took a coat after her escape
two months ago- Mrs. Evans'
landlady, Mrs. Emma Van Bman
said Mrs. Judd was an "angel
In disguise."
. "All the papers do is play up
the notorious things like mur-
der, but they don't tell all the
good things she had done. She
has x done a lot of wonderful
things for peopk," Mrs. Evans

Kid Gaviln Defends Title Against Dykes Tonight
Schools Hoop
Championship
Set Wednesday
The only thing that is sure,
about the big championship
playofl game this Wednesday
night a the Balboa Qym is thai
it will be the final game of the
season in the Interscholastic
Basketball League. Ail season
long the two high schools have
been battling it out in the
bucket ball sport, and' this Is the
time for the showdown.
The first time the two schools
met. Cristobal won by about 5
points. The next time Balboa
leased by with a thrilling over-
time 2 point win. The third,
time, BH8 played their best
game of the' year to win by
some 8 points, and the fourth
time was a one sided smearing
administered by the Tigers.
So this is the fifth and final
meeting of the Bulldogs and
the Tigers this season, and will
not only settle the issue be-1
tween the two schools, but will I
also decide the Intercholastic
League title holder for 1952.
The game will get under way
on the Balboa hardwood at 71

test, and the doors to the Gym
will open at 6:30 In order,that
the fans may assure themselves
of good seats.
Th Tigers, riding the crest of
a three game winning- streak,
are not after the championship
they have been defending all
season. On the basis of their
play in the latter part of the
season, and the fact that the
Bulldogs are without their ace
scorer, the Tigers rate as solid
.favorites to take home the hon-
ors once again.
If Gene Richter were still
available for the big game, the
iwo teams would enter the con-
test with little to choose be-
tween them. Richter averaged
12.5 points per game for the
Bulldogs, and It will have to be1
a fighting team of Bulldogs to
make up for his absence.

The caliber of Gaviln' 78 vic-
tories in 84 ring appearances
stamp him as a heavy choice I
over the tall Dykes who has scor-'
ed 73 times over lesser opposi-
tion. However, a comparison of
opponents appeared to Indicate
that Dykes Is a stronger puncher
while Gaviln' bua-saw attack
Is a bigger point counter.
The Champion also has the
ability to absorb punishment.
One of the 22-year-old Dykes' big
stumbling blocks on the road to
ring stardom has been a flighty
stomach that sometimes ties him
Into knots just before a big fight.

quickly that this dawdling atti-

Chandler Joins Dumont To Form World-Wide Baseball Body
Pair Plan '53
Global Series
In Brooklyn
By JOHNNY McCALLUM
NEA Staff Correspondent
NEW YORK, Feb. 4 (NEA)
When big league owners voted
not to relicense A. B. Chandler
as baseball's grand pooh-bah,
The Happy One calculated that
he might return to his old.Ken-
tucky home and take up politics
again, or enter private business,
or just sit and dawdle bis feet In
his swimming pool.
Instead, Col. Chandler has
joined the circuswell, a reason-
able facsimile thereof, anyway.
The sacked baseball commis-
sioner has joined forces with Ray
Dumont to form the Internation-
al Baseball Congress, a body de-
dicated to spreading sandlot
baseball.
And If working with Dumont
isn't one big merry circus, It will
have to do until another Bar-
num and Bailey come along.
Raymond Harry Dumont, In
charge of the National Baseball
Congress' deep thinking, is a col-
, orful little guy hung on the end
of a long cigar. He's most famous
for his sca-rewy antics, yet he
has more originality and a great-
_ er flair for showmanship than

40 New Names Coming Along
As Pro Golf Show Keeps Going
Trouble with new brooms in the banda of ambitious ener-
Gtie operators is that they are often devoted to pointless
ion. Something like this seems to be happening to Bob
Chrlstenberry, our new boxing commissioner, who calls a public
hearing at the drop of a paiooka.
Latest one has to do with a match in the Oarden pit which
was stopped by Reteree Ruby Goldstein on account of one of
the young men, Llvio Mlnellj, wouldn't fight or couldn't- fight.
""It was an uneven match'' was the referee's formal explanation.
From his ringside'pew,'Onrlstenberry Immediately expressed
approval of the action, ordered Mlnelli's purse, amounting to
$5540, withheld and called a public hearing "to determine why
the match was made In the first place."
As his guest at the fight Chrlstenberry had Police Com-
missioner George Monaghan.
"We both agreed it was a walta," be revealed.
It was evident Chrlstenberry handled the word loosely, be-
came be had previously agreed there had been no suggstlon of
wrong-doing, and that Mlnlll's chief offense was mediocrity. In
the prise ring waltz is a horrid word. It means the boys aren't
leveling. Our new commissioner just hasn't been around long
enough to acquaint himself with the language.
Goldstein' is our best referee. Probably the country's best
Yet It can't be said that his action in stopping the fight for
the reason stated, has met with unstinted applause. On the
contrary, a majority of the critics feel he not only overstepped
his authority, but pulled a skull and they likewise question
Chrlstenberry s good sense in going along with him.

Horton Smith is weary of hav

box scores, mechanical plate
dusters and putting boxing gloves

brain whirl every 15 minutes,
and the bulk of them are down-
right entertaining.
Ray Dumont. a man of prog-
ress, has built the National Base-
about Sam Snead? Is there any
chance of Byron Nelson showing

criticises the golf writers for not

coming and Iess-publlclzed stars.

Dumont and Chandler are also 0r five years by World War II.
THEY CANT GUARANTEE RESULTS
There can be no quarrel with any official who lines up on
the public's side, and there Is no serious quarrel here with
either Chrlstenberry or Goldstein. But there is a right and
a wrong way to do things, and even a prize fighter, not to men-
tion a matchmaker, is entitled to some consideration.
Withholding Mlnelli's purse was patently an Impulsive deci-
sion unwarranted by Goldstein's conclusion. There Is no law
in any book, unless Pal Joey has one, which says you can take
a man's money away simply because his talents happen to be
ordinary. Remember there was no question of the fighter's In-
tegrity. Not up to now. anyway.
In ordering All Weill to return from Florida, where he Is
busy on another show, to explain why the match was made,
Chrlstenberry seems to overlook the fact that no match can be
presented without commission approval. The final responsibility
thus lies with Chrlstenberry and his associates. This, I'm sure,
it not a designed attempt to harass or second-guess the Garden
matchmaker, but Is rather the product of contused thinking
and Inexperience.
Actually, no matchmaker, no matter how wise or cons-
cientious, can guarantee unfailing excellence In performance.
Some matches that figure to be corkers prove to be stinkers.
Even on this particular card, the Roger Donoghue-Red DeFazlo
pairing shaped up as more a mismatch than the Mlnelll-Johnny
Saxton thing. Underdog DeFazlo proceeded to win in a thriller.
There was reason to believe the veteran Minelll and the
young upcoming Saxton would make an interesting fight. Of
course, these days when television yields promoters more of the
filthy than the gate, matchmakers are not severely fastidious.
This, however, was a run-of-the-mill program, so priced at the
box office, and the quality of the principals was not out of line.

THEE ALWAYS LOOR FOR THE WORST
The abate concerning Goldstein concerns authority. It is
desirable or permissible for a referee to stop a bout because
ths particular style of a fighter is not getting exciting results?
Is this to be.the policy for all fqture bouts? Unless Chrlsten-
berry changes- the stand, the answer Is yes, for he had nothing
but praise for Goldstein.
This U a dangerdua policy. It gives the third man entirely
too much leeway for whimsical and arbitrary action. It so hap-
sns Goldstein Is above repproach, but the same authority In the
ends of an unscrupulous referee Is an enchanting Invitation
to lareeny.
Well,Just what la a referee to do when he finds himself
with a:Mlnelli on his hands, a fellow trying his limited best,
but dreadfully Ineffectual or resourceful enough to make a fight of it? Is he to go along
with the hopeless futility, or accept It as an unfortunate situa-
tion.
Since this doesn't happen often, I'd recommend the leas
drastic way, especially in view of the fact that the opportunity
for chicanery in the ring Is abundant enough as It Is, without
making it any more alluring. Better an occasional agony fight,
than a series of scandals. -*.,.,
In any other sport reasonable allowance would be made
for an off night, a decrease in normal efficiency due to natural
causes. Like wilt and Oehrmann. both under the weather, turn-
ing In a mediocre 4:11.2 mile In the Mllrose games, when the

the worst.

Fairless Predicts Inflation
If Steelworkers Get Raise
NEW YORK, Feb. 4 (UP)
Benjamin Fairless, president of
United States 8teel Corpora-
tion, today warned that pay
increases demanded by CIO
steelworkers would start an in-
flationary spiral that might
wreck U. 8. economy.
Fairless appeared as spokes-
man for the steel Industry be-
fore a special six-man panel of
the. Wage Stabilization Board
set up by President Truman
other CIO unions will press for
higher wages, touching off a
new spiral of Inflation.
The steel industry contends
that any new inflation spiral
would force the government to
pay more for its defense needs
and in turn force higher taxes.
The union was flatly re-
jected the Industry Idea of
giving up Its wage demands In
return for the steel companies'
holding the price line. They
to prevent a strike called by i say the Industry can pay hlghr
the United Steelworkers on Feb. I er wages without raising prices,
and some government officials
have let it be known they
agree with the union.
But Industry leaders claim
their profits are so small that
they cannot pay higher wages
and continue to expand de-
fense production.
23.
A spokesman for the steel-
workers told the panel last
Friday the union wants a
guaranteed annual wage of
about $3,000 and a package in-
crease of 30 cents an hour,
which Includes pay boosts and
fringe benefits -
Since any pay Increase per-
mitted by the WSB could not
amount to more than four or
five cents, Fairless said the
CIO was using the steel In-
dustry as a "battleground" in
the fight to wreck the wage
control program.
Fairless told the panel that
any such increase Is possible
only if coupled with a price
increase in vital steel products,
which in turn would force other
companies to raise both wages
and prices.
Fairless has proposed that
the union give up its demands
for a wage Increase in return
for the Industry's giving, up
its demands for a price In-
crease.
Industry leaders charge the
union Is spearheading. a drive
by the CIO to wreck the wage
freeze program by refusing to
keep its demands within li-
mits set by the WSB. If the
steelworkers win an above-
ceiling raise, they charge, that
They also say that If their
profits are cut, the government
will lose millions of dollars In
taxes the steel corporations
pay, forcing the government
either to raise taxes from new
sources or go further Into debt.
They see either alternative as
a powerful source of Inflation.

Agriculture Secretary Charles
P. Brarrnan. In testimony during
the hearings, said reports Ot
storage losses up to $100,000,000
were "pipe dreaming."
He said the total will not go
over $7.000,000. and the subcom-
mittee concluded most of the
monev will be recovered through
voluntary payments or damage
suits.
Informed of the report, a
spokesman for Brannan agreed
that some 109 former defense
warehouses were used by the
CCC. But he said about 84 of
them already had been leased .
for long terms to local govern- sella It, and the government
takes the loss.
The subcommittee, headed by
Rep. Jamie L. Whitten (D-
Mlss.). declared, however, that
there can be "no Justification for
securing storage space at full
rates to government-owned fa-
cilities through third parties who
have leased the space from the
government for nominal a-
mounts for the sole purpose of
storing CCC commodities."
It said that in one case, the
CCC paid storage charges of
1948 Presidential campaign and
was modlfed by the 81st Con-
gress to permit the government
to build storage bins.
He noted that the 1948 and
1949 crops were verv large and
the department had to use ma-
ny emergency measures in-
cluding use of 40 Liberty ships
and piling grain on the ground
to store some of the govern-
ment-held grain.
The CCC is required by law
to bay grain from farmers at a
fixed price when It is gelling
below that price on the open
market. The farmer may buy
back his grain within a speci-
fied time if the market price
rises to the government sup-
part "tUtm." If not, the CCC

Missouri River flow under
their new $1,970,000 bridge.
The bridge spans nothing now
but dry land.
Brt County, Neb., built the
bridge In 1950 and it's all ready
toll house and all for the
first auto to cross, except that
lt ends on the east side where
the river begins.
Almost forgotten in the last
year, the bridge got back into
the news when Iowa Sen. Guy
Gillette asked President Truman
to release some $4,000,000 which
he said was earmarked for
changing the Missouri River
channel.
Mr. Truman promised to look
into the matter.
Gillette was Interested in the
welfare of Onawa. la., which
should be across the bridge from
Decatur, but isn't.
Originally the river ran where
lt should right under where
the bridge is now. In 1946, how-
ever, the Big Muddy meandered
off Into Iowa.
Burt County officials saw a
chance to save some $4,000,000 by
building the bridge over dry
land.
They went ahead, on the as-
surance of Army engineers that
the river channel would be
restored when the span was fin-
ished.
Since then the bridge has
brooded silently over bone-dry

moving further into Iowa.

These Canberra squadrons
will fly more than nine miles
high, operating by day or night
and using radar aids to bomb
In darkness and cloud.
The Canberra carries a crew
of three-pilot, navigator-plot-

partial pressure suits coupled
to the plane's oxygen supply.
If the cabin pressurizatlon
system fails, these suits main-
tain' a steady pressure round
