An income tax investigation which has never been reported
hjaa been carried on for months on a national scale, looking Into
a- uiultl-million-dollar racket system of the Chlenese tongs.
Even older than the Sicilian Black Hand are the Chinese
secret societies, which existed from time immemorial as patriotic,
anti-foreign and criminal organizations.. .In the New World, the
Chnese established the tong system, apparently for benevolent
an_d miscellaneous purposes, but actually to monopolize crime...
When the Black Hand grew into the Mafia, and that into the
worldwide Crime Cartel, It found the International Chinese so-
ciety set-up side by side with It a valuable ally and business as-
sociate. Wherever there is a Chinatown there are alliances with
tfce crime Syndicate.
Moat American-Chinese criminals are members of one of the
"tongs." Their social psychology, or Oriental "way of thinking,
makes them contemptuous of Western manners and law enforce-
ment. Large transactions In narcotics are financed by Chinese
gambling activities.
Many Chinese have entered this country Illegally and fear ol
deportation is eater than fear of prison. Possession o so-canea
"coaching papers" is evidence that the holder got in illegally or
conspired in ths falae entry of others.
Tsars, or "hongs" in the Tolshan dialect, of which there are
seven, exist only In the United States and Canada. They are secret
societies which came into being in San Francisco about 1897...
To ban killings without losing the profits, Chinese amalgamated
the six family associations into the "Look Dal Gung See" ese Six Companies) or "Jung Won Wui Goon" (Chinese Conso-
lidated Benevolent Association.)

Just a Matter of Taste
By Victor Rittel
Victims of the Six Companies formed the first tong in San
Francisco. During, law-defying Chinese from each association
joined and formed a vicious coercive secret order whose "hatchet-
men," or "highbinders," through threats and violence, negated
the Six Companies. The first tong took control of gambling,
prostitution of Chinese women and narcotics. Merchants were
blackmailed into paying monthly tribute for "protection." Graft
bought Immunity from policea Yellow Hand, so to say.
Tong officials, called "gee det," are elected yearly. They serve
without salaries, but have expense accounts and thrive on the
secret income. One national president, one vice president and one
treasurer are elected anually. The On Long president for X951
wa Chin Shuin King, International List No. 73, of New York;
the vice president was Mock Shuin, Sin, of Philadelphia, since
elected; the treasurer is Ng See Teun, of Boston. Each major
city has An On Leong headquarters. Candidates spend large sums
to pay votes, giving each member money or paying initiation
fees of new ones. Candidates spend from $20,000 to $50,000 to
"win" elections.
Following are the seven tongs, their areas and affiliates, in
the order of importance:
Atlantic Coast, Middle-West and New England States:
On Leong Tong: Incorporated in several states as the On
Leong Merchants Association or Chinese Merchants Association
hip Sing Tong: Incoporated in several states as the Hip

siaents decision about running again that

Drw Pearson Says: Egyptian cotton broker makes millions
at Agriculture Department's expense; House Com-
mittee probes military waste; Spectators gasp at ma-
chine-tool blunder.
WASHINGTON The manner in which an Egyptian cotton
broker grossed $16 million at the expense of the U. S. Department
of Agriculture has cotton dealers boiling mad and is almost cer-
tain to result in a congressional investigation.
> The Egyptian cotton broker is Loutfy Mansour, who, acting
on insioe Information Just before the Agriculture Department sud-
denly decided to buy Egyptian cotton, cornered 17,500 bales and
cleaned up.
What cotton-bloc Senators are aroused over Is the frlendanlb
between Egyptian broker Mansour and. Clovls Walker, head of the
Agriculture Department cotton branch.
Walker vigorously denies that he gave any inside information
to Mansour. Nevertheless, it Is a fact that the two are friend,
have exchanged presents, and that the Agriculture Department
official attended a fancy dinner thrown by Mansour at the Shore,
ham Hotel here last August.
It is also Interesting that Walker recommended Dyke Collum,
onetime speculating partner of Ex-Sen. Elmer Thomas of Okla-
homa, to the Egyptian broker to be Mansour's brokerage repre-
sentative in Washington. -
Thus, ties between Mansour and Walker are close.
Walker, when questioned by this column, admitted he had re-
ceived gifts from the Egyptian broker ln the form of. Egyptlsn
glassware and sliver. He claimed, however, that he had gtven elec-
trically illuminated pictures, which he makes, in return, and that
his gifts were as valuable as Mansour's.
when and if the Senate digs into Mansour's amaetog cotton
speculation, it will want to inquire about several interesting things.
One is the fact that Mansour had enough advance information
that Egyptian cotton was to be bought to come to Washington
from Egypt ln time to negotiate. He also had enough advance
information to corner the Egyptian cotton market.
On other deals Manour seemed to have phenomenal luck ln
under-bidding competitors with the Agriculture Department, and
Senators are curious to see Just what type of crystal ball he used
and whether such crystal ball had anything to do with the Agri-
culture Department's Walker.
Armed services officials who figured in the huge and abortive
machine-tool contract, suddenly canceled following an expose by
this columnist, got a rough working-over last week from a house
committee probing military waste.
Committee Chairman Ed Hebert of Louisiana had the atmos-
phere hopping as he angrily demanded answers to:
. 1. Wny the Fisher Body division of General Motors was given
the Air Force contract to make 797 vertical turret lathes, though
it had no experience ln this field; also, why the company was to
be paid $90,800 per lathe while an experienced concern, the Bul-
lard Co. of Bridgeport, Conn., was charging the government only
$38,000 for the same identical lathe?
S. Why military procurement officials acted on the advice of
a former G. M. Official, H. R. Boyer, Chairman of the govern-
ment's Aircraft Production Board, in approving this unwise use
of the taxpayers' money?
3. Wny defense olflclals refused to spend $7,000,000 for ex-
panding the lathe-making facilities of the Bullard company,
though the government stood to lo*e more than ln toollng-up
expenses at the Fisher Body plant?
Congressman Hebert and his colleagues also brought out that
the government agreed to "rent" Flsher-G.M. all but 80 out of
some 507 units of tooling machinery needed to fulfill the contract.
But it turned out that this was not actually rent, but a free gift
to the company under a "credit" stipulation.
The revelation* brought gasps from spectators but little worth-
while information irom Assistant Air Secretary R. L. Gilpatric,
who nervously argued that the contract was awarded Fisher-G. M.
because It could "get the Job done faster" than the Bullard CO.
Gilpatric at first denied that anyone formerly associated with
Fisher Body company had anything to do with placing the order.
However under some crogs-examlnation by Congressman Paul
Cunninghams>I Iowa, he was forced to treat.j, \ \. i
Ttev*loped thatlo>* eral Motors; which ownsthe Fl*he> comparfy:huVthat Boyer had
a prominent voice in awarding the contractin fact, he "per-
sonally recommended to me that the best way to get on with this
Job from a time standpoint" was to give It to Flshef, Gilpatric told
the Committee.
Gilpatric defended Boyer on the ground that he had a "pe-
dal competence" In his Job.
Most fantastic touch was provided by 8wan E. Bergslrom, a
machine-tool expert with the national production authority. Re-
plying to questions by Hebert about why the Fisher company was
to be paid $90,600 eaeh for the same turret lathe another com-
pany was selling for $38,000, Bergstrom said it was perfectly
normal for Fisher to charge the government 2'/2 times as such, be-
cause Fisher was "Inexperienced" ln making machine tools.
"Does that answer your question?" asked the witness.
"It's as clear as mud," replied Congressman Hebert, who
indicated later that he still can't understand why inexperience
should cost twice as much as experience.
Congressman Jack Dempsey of New Mexico, long-time cru-
sader against waste in government, noted that the inexperience
seemed to be on the side of Gilpatric and others responsible for
the machine-too) blunder. When Bergstrom conceded that the
$90,600 price was prohibitive to private customers, Dempsey
bitingly observed:
"Nobody else would buy them except the Federal government
and its officials."
The barb didn't seem to rile Gilpatric. Asked If he thought
that this method of awarding contracts could be "streamlined."
this top defense official replied:
"When I first came here eight months ago I would have
thought so, but I am not so sure."
,!You would say it is impossible because of the growth of the
system or it is not desirable?" pressed Hebert.
"That Is one way of putting it," replied Gilpatric. "This is an
awful big government andI have learned more about the com-
plexity of It than I knew as a private citizen."
When the Assistant Air Secretary continued to elaborate on
the "complicated" nature of the government. Hebert remindec
him rather bluntly: "That U correct. And you are ln a stream and
not swimming against it."

SYNAGOGUE GETS A "GRAVEN IMA0E"-A Jewish congregation in Chicago has defied a
eenturies-oM tradition by erecting a figurative sculpture of an outer will of its modern synagogue
in suburban River Forest, 111. Some Jewish ecclesiastics believe such figures defy the command-
ment against worship of graven images. However, sculptor Milton Horn defends his work as being
in the true tradition of the Hebrew religion. The work shows a winged flgure with "flame-like
head and four all-seeing eyes" holding aloft the tables of commandments and trampling the earth-
bound behemoth.

ROME, Oa., Feb. 18 (UP)
Three Mississippi Jail-breakers,
one a 21-year-old woman, fled
across Alabama and into Geor-
gia over the weekend in stolen
cars, and polled at least one

Their trail was lost after a
car was stolen Sunday near

Late Saturday night, two men
held up the Shangri La Tourist
camp six miles outside of Rome
and left with $160. the Georgia

The robbers drove a 1949 Ford
which later was found aban-
doned in a field near here.
Bloodhounds were put on the
trail of the occupants but they
lost it
Tn aune men were believed
responsible for the Cedartown
theft a abort time later. Cedar-
town lies 20 miles south of
Alabama officers were almost
certain the Mississippi escapers
were the persona who tole a
late model Buick Friday at
Mobile a few hoars after the
break from Pascacoula, 48 miles
The Buick was found aban-
doned at Oxford, Ala., and the
fugitives switched to the Ford
that was used in the Rome hold-
Those sought by an increas-
ing number of officers in three
states were John Scarvey, 82;
Robert Miller, 88, and Linda
Blake, 21, all of the Pascacoula
The men were described as
'Oough-talklng and dangerous."
Their woman companion became
a member of the flight when
she hollered at the escapera to
take her along as they made
their break.
The fugitives apparently had

Two observers in the CAA
tower at Raleigh-Durham air-
port were among hundreds who
saw the strange object and de-
scribed It.
"My first Impression was that
some aircraft had fired a rocket,
but it must have been a meteor,"
J. M. Bearden, a CAA observed,
CAA safety Inspector Hamil-
ton Cowin of Richmond, Va.,
said he saw a "silvery, cigar-
shaped object" hurtling toward
the earth as he was flying over
Hanover, Va'.. bout 15 miles
North of Richmond.
He said he was too far away
to determine what it was but
said It was traveling at "tre-
mendous speed" in an almost
vertical line.
The Richmond CAA said an
Eastern Airlines pilot reported
seeing the strange object "in a
burst of light" over the Dismal
Highway patrolman C. R,
Klrkman of Salisbury, N. C.
reported he chased a trail at

Rock dam east of Salisbury
thinking It was a burning plane.
He said he lost sight of the
smoke and found no wreckage.
About 11:80 a. m. highway
patrolmen at Wilmington, N. C,
raced to a swampy woods 18
miles north of there to Investi-
gate reports that a plane had
crashed with a ''bright flash"

develop? Don't be ashamed to
admit that you'd lead the oueen
of diamonds for a finesse. Moit
experienced bridge players would
do the same thing, but they'd all
be wrong. . ,
Cohan quite properly led a low
club to dummy's king and con-
tinued the suit to knock out
West's ace. Now West could es-
tablish his hearts by leading the
suit a third time, but he could
never regain the lead to cash his
good heart*. w^.^
Declarer won the heart return
with the ace and cashed the rest
of his clubs. Then he could safe-
ly try the diamond finesse. East
was able to hi 1th the king of
diamonds but could not return
a heart. East could therefore not
prevent declarer from winning a
spade, two hearts, three dia-
monds, and three club.
Now let's go back to the begm-
lng of the hand and see why It's
Irronr * le*d diamond after
winning the king of hearts. East
wins the diamond finesse and
can return a heart, setting up
his partner's suit.
West still has the ace of clubs
and la bound to get the lead with
that oard in time us set the eon-
tract With his long heart suit.
The Important pomt Is that
South must attack West's entries
before the hearts are establish-
ed. Since the ace of clubs Is a
sure entry, that suit must be led,
immediately. South is not or-,
rled about the kins: of diamonds,
for If West holds that card he will
never be able to win a trick with

Johnston, manager of feather-
weight champion bandy Saddler
and light-heavyweight contender
Archie Moore, said professional
competition among flyweights
(limit 112 pounds) and bantam-
weights (H8) is nractkally
"dead" In the United States now
because there are so few active
little men left In this country
"Because of the high standard
of living here, it's almost Impos-
sible for a youngster to remain a
runt If he's active In boxing as
an amateur and professional
from the time he's 14 or 15 until
he's 20," the guild prexy ea-
"I mean he's lust got to
grow because of the exercise,
coupled with the wholesome
food, improved sanitation and
better all-round living condi-
tions enjoyed by all. And our
labor laws prevent the kids
from being dwarfed by being
sent to work in factories or
mines before they're 18.
"Yes, there are other countries
that still have thriving profes-
sional competition in the fly-
weight and Bantam divisions, but
those countries lack our high
standard of living."
Johnston said We growth of
the American boxer was reflect-
ed not only in the fade-out of the
flyweights and bantams, but in
the increasing scarcity of talent
in the featherweight (I2fl) and
lightweight (135) classes.
He recalled that a quarter-cen-
tury ago, the number of feathers
ana lightweights exceeded those
in other divisions, but that today
the welterweight (147) and mid-
dleweight (100) had the most
"And I understand the size of
maturing competitors In all oth-
er branches of our athletics has
increased a lot since 25 years
ago," he said.
Concerning the new weight-
division in boxing, Johnston
pointed oat that the purpose
of the existing eight weight
classes was to prevent smaller
men from being Injured by
blows from larger men.
"In New York state, for exam-
ple, no one in the featherweight
division can be matched with a
fellow who out-welghs him more
than eight pounds," he said. "Nor
can a light-heavyweight meet a
man out-weighing him more
than 14 pounds. But, once a
Soungster grows out of the llght-
eavy division, he has no such
protection. We need protection
for him, and we need a new divi-
sion for competition."

United Press Sports Writer
One hour after he won the Na-
tional 8tock Car championship
by winging home on a prayer,
burly Marshall Teague was back
pumping gas at his service sta-
tion and looking completely un-
like a man who just had spent
two hours In a roaring bedlam.
Not long before, the former
B-29 flight engineer had been
hurling his Hudson Hornet
around the four-mile beach-road
course at an average of 84.85
miles an hour. That means he
had threaded his way through 62
other cars, two-feet-deep sand
ruts and tortuous curves at top
speed of 110 miles an hour for
tne hour and 36 minutes it took
him to cover the 160 miles.
It was his second straight
triumph In this annual event
over Daytona's famed speed-
way, but Teague was busy wip-
ing wind-shields, checking oil
and inflating tires for the
trade. As the slew-talking,
fast-driving Plorldlan explain-
"This is my business."
The other, those perilous, pul-
sating hours on the course, had
been for fun. Because the big
man who started driving in 194o
counts the speedway as strictly
"for laughs" and a sideline in
which despite his success there
isn't much financial return.
"Last year I won five good
races and financially made very
little." he explained. "But I sure
like to go along for the ride."
His ride this time was a breeze,
for he won going away by a full
minute and 21 seconds over Herb
Thomas of Olivia, N.C., but It was
a ride he almost didn't take
and almost didn't finish.
Last fall the black-haired
man went to Mexico and drove
In the 2,lN-mlle trans-Mexico
race. He finished sixth. But he
was suspended from NASCAR,
which sanctions United States
events, for competing in what
was ruled an outlaw rase.
Teague debated for a while
whether to pay a 8875 fine bat
finally shelled oat.
Bo he again became eligible for
the big Daytona event, only to
almost lose it when he had It
wrapped- up. The race was to
have been over 200 miles, which
means a pit stop for all at those
speeds. But at the 199-mile mark
the race was shortened to 150
miles because a rising tide was
inundating the beach side of the
racing oval.

Teague sat there, helplessly
while his ear puttered to a
stop. But by then he didn't

eheekered flag they wave at
the happy winner.
"The cars take a lot of punish-
ment in a race like this," Teague
asserted. "Just 100 miles at those
speeds and through those bumps
and jams Is equal to 25,000 miles
on the highway as far as tearing
a car apart."
Yet, while the big man check-
ed the battery water for an im-

much more than Iron machines.

No mention wag made at the hearing that the retired gen-
eral hod been a member of the special reviewing board which
sat in on the West Point cribbing Affair, but the eeaualttoe
took cognisance of the fact by observing the contrast that the
"hapless and luckless Cadsts were made to pay a frightful price
for their degressions against the honor code/'
First I ever heard of the old warrior was in s letter in
which he smacked me around for writing "Ths West Paint
honor code seems to be based on fear of dismissal tad OJ
Itself is a mockery of the term..." No such thing, rae risking
chair fire-eater snorted.
"The code was established 130 years age on the theory that
truth, honor and integrity were lndispensibls aualltis fee art
officer. It endured and grew into tradition until it has become
something priceless." Furthermore:
"Pride in the long gray line' and loyalty to its ideals
make it work, it is the code under whieh Grant, ""
SheridanLee, Stonewall Jackson, James Longstreet,
Btillard, MacArthur. Bradley, pstton and Elsenhower were
ed and given to their country, and that fact stirs the
of every Cadet."
Pretty words and pretty sentiments and nobody's going to
argue against them, and no doubt this nobility of spirit and
purpose carries on even after the West Pointer hangs up his
gun. and It's just a downright shame that somebody's been
going around using the saintly old-tlmer'i name to MaeBJiek
advertisers, and for the honor of the corps and the memories
of Lee and Grant sad Pershing ws wish they'd step.
No House subcommittee called the Cadets in to hoar their
side of the eribblng affair. They protested, too, that they wore
being tried on terms that did not meet their "approval dr eon-
sent" but nobody was listening From all accounts Honor First
Danford deemed them thoroughly despicable and was la happy
agreement that the young men should be made to "pay a
frightful price."

My position in the cribbing affair was that it was 0* ad-
ministrative affair that should have been handled internally
without designed Washington fireworks, that the offenders
should have been properly punished, with quick expulsions hi
the more flagrant cases, but that group dismissal and -public
shame were excessive and unjustifiable exactions.
It develope a great many American citizens were outraged
to a point where Pentagon and Weit Point officials were swamp-
ed with protests, a fact whieh probably helps to explain why
he matter was allowed to die so quickly and presently Bed
Halk. the coach, who had become a symbol o A/ademy wroni
and a smear campaign target, was, along with MS peUCMS,
completely vindicated.
This must be the first time a football coach has won cat tat
the face of such powerful opposition, much of it politically
Inspired, skillfully and deviously manipulated.
One of these days when all the facts ars in and it is
possible to identify all the backstage characters this will make
a story the like of which the sports world has never read. What,
for instance, caused Frederick Irving. West Point bead man, to
change his mind so quickly? One day he was saying thsr was
no place in West Point for Blalk to the dual capacity of swash
and athletic director. The next be was laying he a^tdUte

1,125 Tourists Saw Canal
Last Month As US Guests
A total of 1,125 tourists saw
the Panama Canal between Pe-
dro Miguel and Gamboa during
the month of January from the
aecks of Dredging Division
equipment, according to the
monthly report of the Division's
superintendent, P. A. White.
In all, nine such trips were
made during the month for
ourist agencies. Five of the
trips were made with the crane-
boat Atlas and the other four
with the ferry President Porras.
Also during the month a total
of 481,800 cubic yards of mate-
rial were removed from the Ca-
nal and its approaches during
the month, the report states.
Two dredges were at work dur-
ing the month, the Cascadas on
the Pacific end and at the Pa-
cific entrance of the Canal and
the suction dredge Mlndl in
the Cristobal harbor approach
The Mlndl will be under re-
pairs in the Cristobal drydock
this month but the Cascadas, a
dipper dredge, will continue
maintenance operations in the
Pacific entrance.
There was no interference
with shipping because of slides
during the month. Log booms
were maintained at the Canal
Junctures of the Chagres, Man-
dinga and Cocou Rivers to pre-
vent hyacinths, logs and other
obstructions from entering the
Canal and It was estimated that
a total of 5,194,000 hyacinth
plants were destroyed during
the month. The majority of
these, an estimated 3,096,000,
were destroyed by spraying with
12,4-D solution.
