Denies Germ
War Charges
TOKYO, Feb. 27 (UP) The
United Nations Command
charged today that Communist
propagandists have accused
the United Nations of waging
germ warfare to cover up an
epidemic in North Korea.
A "Voice of the United Na-
tions Command" broadcast
aald these epidemics were
made worse by infected band-
ages and decayed food.
The broadcast was an an-
swer to a Communist propa-
ganda campaign which claims
United Nations planes have
dropped thousands of disease-
laden fleas and cockroaches
into North Korea.
The UN broadcast said the
Communist charges were meant
to divert the public in the
Red-held areas from the fact
that Red obstlnajry at Panmun-
iom Is farther postponing an
armistice.

TWO AND A HALP CENTURIES AGO, Spain's master artiatGoya, depicted the traditional
"Burial of the Sardine" in a grotesque painting made in 1793 which now nanga in tne Aca-
demy of San Fernando in Spain. The above reproduction la a detail from tne larger can-
vas. There have been many speculations as to the origin of the fish-burying ceremony
which has always marked the end of Panama's carnivals, but the Goya painting seems to
establish that it is an Ash Wednesday custom inherited from Spain, and waa probably an-
cient at the time the artist recorded it.

At Least 40 US
Ships To Tie Up
During Exercise
Convex Three, a U.S. Navy exercise in the control and
protection of shipping, one of the largest ever conducted
by the U.S. Atlantic Fleet, got under way today . and
Coln looked forward to being a Navy town for the next
few weeks.
The exercise will cover a sea area stretching from
Cape Cod to South Amrica and Panam will bo one of
the main spots in the operation, it was announced by
Headquarters, 15th Naval District.
More than 40 ships taking part an average of bet-
ter than two a day will put into Cristobal for liberty
and recreation from time to time during intervals of the
exercise which will be brought to a close on March 19.
15th Naval officials said today
they could not disclose when the
first vessels would* tie up at the
Atlantic Side, or how ion they
would stay.
"But you can expect plenty of
them from now until the 19th,"
they added.

Thli department, which tries to specialise in hot newsyea
lot of it before it happenwill today lead off with a priceles-
document which has come into its possession, as it was created
In 1814. It is given to me as a verbatim report of the sentence pro-
nounced in August of that year on a horse-thief who had been
convicted by a-jury. The original Is said to be in the archives of
the Arizona Historical Association. Carl Ravar,a, at La Vie En
Rose, has set It to calypso. The original follows:
* "Jos Oabrlelle Maria Ferdinndez, a jury of your peers has
fairly tried you in this court during the month of August, in the
year of our Lord, 1874. The month of August is a beautiful period,
coming In the middle of Summer, when all nature is busy with
the tasks imposed upon her to continue has existence. The trees
are laden with fruit; In the fields the grains are ripening. Birds
are singing with the duties of caring for their young. All Nature
Is happy with the success of its reproduction. Summer is truly a
beautiful season.
"Then, Jos Gabriel Maria Ferdinndez. comes Autumn. It if
then that Nature reaps the rich rewards of her labors for the
year. The ripened grain is harvested, the sweet fruits of the or-
chards are gathered, and now Nature begins her pre-
paration for the long rest she has earned. She clothes herself
beflttlnglv, In both ombre garb and no less the brilliant colors
of the festival and fiesta period after a season of toil. Jos oa-
brlelle Maria Ferdinndez, comes Winter, and this too, though
austere, is a beautiful season. All Nature lies at rest under its
blanket of snow, while the Almighty Providence replenishes the
storage of moisture which is later to fill our streams and spring,
and assure that our cro.-s will grow fat and plenteous, and that
we will prosper. You, Jos Oabrlelle Maria Ferdinndez, well may
ponder that Winter ts, indeed a beauteous season.
"And then comes Spring! Ah, Jos Oabrlelle Maria Fer-
dlnnde. Of them all Spring Is indeed the queen, the most
beautiful season! All Nature springs again to joyous life. The
trees bad. The birds sing. The Dowers bloom; their sweet
odors fill the air. All Nature is happy In the youth of another
fsar, and busy with preparations for the duties before her.
he love of life in Nature Is reborn, we all are young and our
the springtime of the year! Yes, springtime Is veritably the
the springtime of the year! Yes. Printline is veritably the
ima't beautiful season of all. Bnt you, Jos Gabrielle Mana
Ferdinandeiyou dirty, black-hearted, scouidrelly, horse-
thiering s. o. byou will see nothing of It. For you are
hereby sentenced to be hung on the last day of next month,
the 30th of September, 1874."

BAN ANTONIO BUGLE
San Antonio, Tex.
The state yesterday let contracts for a Uttle over nine mil-
lion dollars in new road construction. That means more room
for fruto accidents, that are increasing from day to day.
The major party of accidents involve young college students
out for a speedy drive to show the world their superiority.
The fat-stock show is going full blast this week with some
of the finest in the world and from most every state in the Union.
Big prise winners are mostly young boys In Texas, but I also
notice winners from Kansas. Iowa and Illinois.
Sales will begin tonight and run high. Wish some of my old
cattle friends from Chlriqui were here to take It In.
The "medicos" did a good job on me and am able to get
round again Hope to make a few out-of-town trips soon.

ANOTHER GAI STATION WANTED
Blrs:
Whyinell can't we have another Gas Station on the Pacific
Bide?? They have three Gas Stations on the Atlantic Sideone
each at Old Cristobal. Margarita and Gatunyet the population
Is far greater on the Pacific Side and we have only one gas sta-
tions!!!
How about using some of our tax money for a gas station at
Diablo? Seems ridiculous that one should have to wait in the
gas line for 30 or 46 minutes for gasas is-the case on holiday
weekends especially, and even on ordinary weekends the wait is
unneceasarlly long. With the high price we are now paying for
gasoline sure,y another gas station can be Installed.
I'll wager there is no such waiting line in the U. S. or any-
where else for gasand I repeatit's ridiculous to have to wait
ao long In a gas line,especially with the high priee we are now
paying for gas.
And I've heard that residents living near the Balboa gas sta-
tion are unable to drive in Or out of their dr.veway Because the
as une has the road blocked. It's ridiculous! !
There's a prominent lawyer
who once wanted to retain an-
other lawyer Net for legal ad-
vice. For social advice to the
forlorn.
The first counselor wasnt
really prominent. I guess no-
torious would be a better des-
cription now that another Con-
gressional witness has placed
him In the Alger Hiss secret
mother cell from which the
Communist Party launched its
successful invasion of the gov-
ernment.
The lawyer wAo wanted
to hire a lawyer is Lee
Pressman, who, as national
CIO counsel, was for a de-
cade undoubtedly one o/
the nation's most powerful
men. The lawyer he want-
ed to take on was a most
respected banister who
prefers to remain anony-
mous, except that I can
point out that he was, un-
til recently law secretary
to Supreme Court Justice
Black.
When Pressman approached
him, Justice Black's former as-
sociate asked what the case
was and Lee Pressman said
there was no case.
He me.ely wanted to mix in
respectable social cicles and my
friend's high connections could
fix that. My friend, needless to
say, turned down that tielc-us-
ing operation.
As usual, Pressman's bril-
liant taciical sense put him far
ahead of his ex-comrades. All
this happened some two years
ago.
Now the entire Communist
appuiatus, with all its fronts
and lellow travelling satellies,
are engaged in one big natio-
nal deiouslng operation in
line wth what the FBI under-
cover agents ale revealing at
the West Coast trial of Party
leaders.
The order is to get respecta-
ble, but fast.
The CIO had just kicked out
10 Communist-Jed unions. Nel-
son roared that now Phil Mur-
ray must be "destroyed."
"The Party was wrong in
working with people like Phil
Murray," Nelson shouted and
outlined strategy for creating
a third labor federation, a
third political party and sei-
zure of the CIO steel union
from Murray's leadership.
All this failed dismally,
of course. So now the ora-
ers are to get respectable,
comrade. This is to warn
churches of all denomina-
tions, radio and TV stat-
ions, charitable organiza-
tion, the Salvation Army
and the national political
parties that the Commun-
ist invasion has started
again.
Only the other day, for
example, It was learned that a
man who had the red carpet
not to mention red airplanes
rolled out for him by Sovietised
China has, more recently, been
soliciting funds for a reputable
Brooklyn charity. His name Is
Saul Mills.
There's a Senate report re-
vealing that Communist lead-
ers, when they were In CIO

ings in his home.
There's the Bast Boston mili-
tary electronic firm of A.8.
Campbell on which the left
wing hd its eye. Electronic
gadgets are so fascinating you

The firm dealt with Jim Ca-

Electrical Workers, notoriously

When members on the floor

Washington, D.C.
By BOB RUARK
NEW YORK.-I am Just returned, all pale and
wan, from a hurried mission to that bizarre
foreign land, Washington, D. C, and feel slightly
soiled, rather like a man who has just made a
swift trip througr a sewer.
We do not get the full blast of the stench
up here. It Is thinned down by distance, and
loses some ripeness on the way.
The feeling about Washington today is that
If somebody ran helter-skelter through the
streets, In search of an honest man, there
would be powerful few Eurekas!" to be heard.
Not that there is a prevalence of "honest"
dishonesty, such as burglary or armed robbery.
It is implied thievery of a subtle sort. In some
cases, and just plain sly crookedness in others.
I can't keep up with most of the investiga-
tions that blossom fsJUf, like fktfhk cflMM, on
The Hill. It seem* right now that *dnf>ody
more or less swiped Some tanxers from tha gov-
ernment anfd sold them for a fat fee through
dummy corporations for a quick and monstrous
capital turnover.
Or that somebody got back a profit on owed
Income taxes of over three-quarter of a million
bucks, Just by knowing the" right man to handle
the ca*e.
Or that Newbold Morris, the man whom Pres-
ident Truman hired to clean up the government-
al cesspool himself is a member of the law firm
Jiat was mixed v\> in the tricky shipping deal.
But the tax scandals continue, piled one a-
top the other, like layers of mouldy cabbage and
rotten bananas and old coffee grounds and
putrid meat In a neglected garbage pail, until
the smell Is an odd blend that can best be de-
scribed as the Smell of corruption.
It Is a tangible smell, and you can smell It
in the smart night spots and the plush hotels,
where sleekly barbered men meet to talk big
deal and half-heartedly ogle the sea of white
shoulders on the very fancy women.
What hits the short-termer in Washington to-
day is not so much the few ancient oranges
and old fish bones and soggy bits of bread that
the investigations dredge up from A vast com-
post heap of nastlness. It is the Implied, deeply
burled rottenness at the cor*.
This is the corruption that will never come
clear to viewall the successful 'deals," big and
little, that turned a dirty buck at the expense
of governmental honor and the taxpayer's
plight.
xouyfeel in Washington that if you hang
around a given street corner long enough, some-
body will come up and try to sell you some-
thing faintly illegal, for a cut rateor that if
you sit down for a drink with a stranger you
will wind up on the front pages as a collabor-
ator In some swindle to cut a legal corner and
make you rich at only a mild risk of jail.
What is equally bad Is a feeling of cheap-
Uess; too, about the seekers after "truth" as If

I am not sure you can buy all the mud flung
at the armed forces In Eddie Hebert's razsle-
dazzle side show of waste in military procure-
ment. The way of the practiced politician, and
Congressman Hebert comes from the old Loui-
siana of Huey Long, Is to seise onto the mink
coat and the deep-freeae and the oyster fork
as Imagination capturers, while the big sins
slip quietly by.
1 have seen Washington in all Its stages of
madness in recent yearsthe first frantic hey-
day of Roosevelt's New Deal, the wild and dizzy
doings of the war years, and the caperings of
the xruman sway. Hut never have I smelled It
through the pores like this.
You sense so much lousiness and ineptitude
and hopelessly snarled confusion, so much
double-dealing and lip service, that you feel
Washington good old sunny, clean-streeted,
tree-deckled WashingtonIs lust one big shiny
pustule that has to burst and spray the nation.
But then there is the smugness and arrog-
ance of the incumbents, too, and the weary
despair of the strivers after order.
Bustle, beauty and all, the nation's capital Is
a very depressing town today.

MERRY-60-ROUND.
Drew Pearson Says: Earl Warren, an extremely good gov-
ernor in a.state hard to govern, is GOP't surest shot
for victory in November; Some Old-liners among party
leaders view him with alarm.
LOS ANGELES. The Governor of California was sitting In
Sacramento's Butter Club with Walter Jones of the Sacramento
Bee when his onetime opponent on the Democratic ticket, Bob
Kenny, walked In.
"Governor," said Kenny, "I've been conducting a Democratic'
underground for you for President.
"Every time an eastern newspaperman interviews you, he
comes to see me afterward and asxs: 'What's this fellow Warren
really like?'
"I tell them," continued Kenny, who served eight years as De-
mocratic attorney general of California under Governor Warren,
"that I went eight rounds with the guy and couldn't even lay a
glove on him."
"Perhaps we ought to get a statement from Kenny endorsing
you for the nomination, governor," suggested newsman Jones.
"Oh no," good-naturedly protested Governor Warren, "rm
having a hard-enough time convinolng the Republican that I'm
not a Democrat."
GOP SURE SHOT
Democrat Kenny, who is a sincere admirer of Governor War-
ren, Republican, put his finger on the real reason why GOP bosses
frown on Warrens nomination, and also on the reason why more
realistic Republican leaders are coming round to the fact that the
governor of California would be the surest shot to win for the OOP
next November.
For what Franklin Roosevelt advised his party in lita"to
win we have to wean away Republican votes"Is even more true,
in reverse, today.
With heavy Democratic registrations built up during: 10 year
of Roosevelt-Truman rule, the Republicans must be able to pull
Democratic votes to win, and Earl Warren Is one sure hot who
can do so.
When running for governor In 1942, for instance, he polled
40,000 Democratic votes.
When he ran again in 1948, he pulled so many Democrats that
they nominated him on the Democratic ticket.
In 1950, despite the opposition of Jimmy Roosevelt, a popular
and appealing candidate, warren rolled up a lead of around 100,-
000 in a state that has 1,000,000 mofe registered Democrats than
Republicans.
SECRET OF WARREN'S SUCCESS
It sounds trite to say this, but the secret of Warren's ucc
1; being an extremely good governor in a state that is extremely
hard to govern. __
The ingredients of that success can be summarieed as follows:
1) A shrewd instinct for avoiding executive mistakes.
2) The selection of irreproachable public servant, whether
Republicans or Democrats.
8) An Intuitive sens* of smell that steers him way from
emotional issues.
In a state that has seen the rise and fall of funtiy-money,
ham-and-eggers, and all sorts of fringe movements, Warren haa
never Jumped on a hallelujah bandwagon. Frequently It would
have seemed good politics to do so.
When he was a rising young politician in Oakland, the Ku
Klux Plan swept the state like wildfire and many a politician,
with a stronger sense of expediency than wisdom, put on the
pillow case But not Warren.
Neither then nor later has he gone in for emotional issues.
Some years ago a bandwagon rush for old-age pensions put
Sheridan Downey In the Senatewhere he promptly forgot all
about ham-and-eggg. Warren shunned that bandwagon without
any fanfare. ....
Meanwhile he has gone quietly ahead working on old-age pen-
sions until he has about the best record of any governor In caring
for oldsters. _
When the rage for loyalty oaths came along, Warren also
failed to lead the professional patriots and put his right hand
" A*ed lfV there -would be a pura bf California emptape, ha
replied: "No, we never hired any Reds in the first place." '
The nearest Governor Warren ever came to skating on trfln lc
was when he championed a modified public-health bill.
This made California doctors see red and Warren was accused
on championing creeping socialism.
He has stuck to his guns, however, and the reason is that
when Warren was a boy, his father, a master car builder waa
killed by a housebreaker at night, and his mother was left with a
large family and the difficulty of paying doctor's bHls. So th
governor knows what It's like to go without medical attention.
He also had an experience with the Pacific Mutual Company
when he once forgot to pay hi health Insurance for one day.
Though overdue only one day, It took all the prestige of War-
ren's position, then attorney general of California, to get hi in-
surance policy reinstated. ,
APPOINT ON MERIT
Earl Warren's failure to appoint deserving Republican to
state Jobs has caused anguish and recrimination In OOP fanks
After the lean years under Democratic Governor Oisen, Cali-
fornia Republicans looked forward to putting deserving cronies in
cushy posts. ,.
But unlike Truman. Warren has passed them up
It is said rather bitterly by some Republicans: "Earl Warren
has never done a favor for a friend in his Ufe."
That Is not exactly true. Warren has done plenty of favors for
friends, but they have to be meritorious friends, not merely pr-
This is one reason why old-line OOP leader throughout the
nation view him with alarm.
They know that with Earl Warren In the White Hotate the
chance of getting their henchmen In a postmasters, district at-
torneys and collectors of Internal revenue would be a lot slimmer
than under Taft.
And some of them, from present appearance, would ratner
lose the election than change the bosses of the once Grand Old

Have you ever stopped to think
what an Important role a wom-
an's speaking voice plays in the
happiness of her own home?
Go Into a house where the mo-
ther's voice Is sharp when she
corrects a child, petulant when
she speaks to her husband, harsh
when she points out another's
shortcomings, triumphant when
shi says "I told you 6;" and the
chances are you aren't In a hap-
py household. That voice is too
busy antagonizing all day, every
day, to create a happy atmos-
phere .,
But go Into a house where the
woman's voice Is quietly firm
when she corrects a child, amus-
ed when she points out a hu-
man frailty, softly feminine
when she talks to her husband.
and K's a different house entire-
ly.
That voice encourages and
soothes, laughs and teases, qui-
etly directs, and peace Is usually
the result. ,
Women can't be all-wise and
always cheerful. But they can do
a lot about their voices.
Nagging isn't words. It's a tone
of voice. Sharpness with a child
Isn't Just words. It's a tone of
voice. Hatefulness often Isn't In
what is said, but the voice In
which the words are spoken.
Watch your voice if you. want
to create a happy atmosphere a-
round you.
What you say isn't nearly as
Important as how you say It. And
how you feel will not be nearly so
apt to affect your family If you
watch your voice.

Girls' state. This year Caribbean
Girls' State will be held at Fort
Davis in April from the fourth to
the 10th. This will be the fourth
year that this has been held In

the United States now has a
Girls' State. Each year represen-
tatives, two from each meeting,
are sent to Girls' Nation at
Washington, D. C, where they
learn about the Federal govern-
ment. At C.G.8. the girls learn
something aboul other i
operation of the Canal Zone gov
ernment. They set up thslr own
legislative, Judicial, and executive
bodies. A Governor, Lt.-Oovern-
or, Attorney General, and Secre-
tary of State are chosen as the
state officers and then county
ahd city officials are chosen.
Usually every girl at Girls' State
has an office.

There Is a time for recreation
each day and this year at Fort
Davis there will be a swimming
pool at the disposal of the girls.
Each night before bed time there
Is a get-together and snacks are
served. Also the Army cooking is
out of this world.
Girls' State is an experience
that no eligible girls should miss.
All you need Is to be a Junior In
High School and be taking Amer-
ican History. All expenses are
gild by the Balboa Woman's
lub, Elks, and other organiza-
tions. Application blanks may be
obtained at the High School of-
fice now. Don't delay. Hurry now

"BELLE LE GRAND"
THurHay "POUr.HGIRLS '
Harry Fishbeln, the sage of
the May fair Bridge Club, has the
artist's approacn to a bridge
hand, it hurts him'when a good
hand Is butchered, even when lt
Is an opponent that wields the
cleaver.
In the hand shown today, Fish-
beln opened the deuce of hearts
from the West hand. He expect-
ed dummy to show up with
strength In hearts and blubs (ac-
tually dummv had far less In
clubs than was proper for a
sound re-bld of two no-trump)
and hoped that declarer would
mis-guess the hearts because of
the opening lead.
Declarer did mis guess by
playing the eight of hearts from
the dummy: but lt was his best
chance rather than a poor guess.
Bast also mis-guessed by finess-
ing the nine of hearts, which
would have been correct If West's
opening lead had been from the
jack Instead of the ace.
South won with the jack of
hearts and promptly returned
his singleton diamond. Fishbeln
took the ace of diamonds and
returned another low heart. This
time the maneuver bore fruit,
since declarer played the ten of
hearts from dummy, and East
was able to win with the queen.
East recovered from his sur-
prise at winning this trick In
time to return a heart to Flah-
beln's ace. Fishbeln now return-
ed a club and declarer agonized
over a choice between the queen
and nme from dummy.
Since East held both the king
and Jack of clubs the play from
dummy made no difference, but
South couldn't know that. De-
clarer finally played low from
dummy, and Bast's Jack forced
out the ace. \
South had lost two hearts and
a diamond, so he needed the rest
ofth* tricks. He began th
trumps by leading the deuce to
dummy's king. This spoiled a
very artistic hand and almost
soured Flshbein's notoriously a-
mlable disposition.
South should have led the four
of spades to dummy's king and
should have dropped the seven
of spades on dummy's ace. The
deuce of spades had to be saved.
If this Is done, declarer then
leads high diamonds from the
dummv. di"cardlng two low
rlubs from his hand. The next
diamond is ruffed bv East and
over-ruffed bv South. Declarer
can now lend the deuce of soa to dummy's three. And then the
last diamond can be led to pro-
vide a discard for South's last
low club.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27 (UP)
Rep. Harold H. Velde (R-Ill.)
questioned today whether House
Speaker Sam Rayburn was
motivated by politics In banning
radio, television and newareel
coverage of House committee
hearings.
Velde Is a Republican mem-
ber of the House Un-American
Activities Committee which was
forced to cancel plans Monday
to televise its Detroit hearings
on communism in that area.
It was the first House com-
mittee to feel the effects of
Rayburn's action.
Se spoke out as several De-
ratic and Republican con-
gressmen Joined the broadcasing
industry in protesting the ban.
But Rayburn stood firm, say-
ing that "under the rules of
the House I cannot change the
ruling and I'm not going to."
The Texas Democrat prohibit-
ed live radio and TV broadcasts
of House committee hearings, as
well as recording of movie film-
ing for radio or TV and filming
for newsreels.
It does not affect the taking
of still news protoghaphs.
In the Senate, the committees
themselves decide whether pro-
ceedings shall be broadcast or
televisen.
Neither house of Congress
permits cameras or microphones
on the floor except on special
occasions such as the opening
day or when the President de-
livers an address.
In protesting Rayburn's House
ban. velde asked: "Is it because
of the approaching Senatorial
election In Michigan?"
He apparently referred to the
fact that Rep. Charles E. Pot-
ter (R-Mlch.) a member of the
subcommittee conducting the
Detroit hearings may run for
the Senate seat now held by
Sen. Blair Moody (D-Mlch.).
Chairman Ray* H. Madden
(D-Ind.) of a House committee
investigating the World War II
massacre of 10,000 Polish offi-
cers in the Katyn forest, Joined
in the Congressional protests
against Rayburn's ruling.
He said it would "cripple" his
committee's "mission of expos-
ing to the world what Commun-
ists and dictators do to the
populace."
Rayburn found support from
delegates of the American, Bar
Association.
Meeting in Chicago, it adopt-
ed a resolution opposing tele-
vision coverage of either con-
gressional hearings or court pro-
ceedings.
But the national association
of radio news directors protest-
ed that the ban deprived TV-
radio broadcasts of "equal ac-
cess to the news."
Rep. Jacob K. Pavlts (R-N.Y.)
urged the House to act im-
mediately on his bill to allow
televising and broadcasting of
important congressional debates
and committee sessions.
He said the action would be
"a logical and necessary exten-
sion of our Democratic system."

fairmness in presenting both
sides In debate and an op-

off of the Madden Lake water-
shed.
Asked to recall the most "ex-
citing" weather conditions
since he has lived on the
Isthmus, Mr. Matthew harked
back immediately to the flood
of 1023 and the earthquakes of
October 1913 and May 1014.
There were three days of
heavy rain In 1923, he says
with one foot falling at Cris-
tobal In 34 hours, and about
three feet In three days on the
Atlantic side.
He was up for a good part
of three nights, then, he says,
watching the flood at its worst.
Telephones were out and ord-
ers for opening and closing
spillway gates were dispatched
with the aid of radios on ships
located at the Atlantic and Pa-
cific entrances to the Canal
and in Gatun Lake. One com-
missary on the Chagres Arm
of Gatun Lake was washed
away and several ships were
grounded in the six-knot cur-
rent that swirled into the
Casal from the Chagres River
at Gamboa.
The earthquakes, Mr. Mat-
thew, says, "shook things up
pretty lively." There were SO
separate quakes in October,
1013 and several ta May 1914.1
The quakes were bad. he ex-
platas, but the confusion caus-
ed by the excitement they oc-l
casioned was probably worse.

The IV Caribbean Series ended
successfully Monday night with
the second largest crowd of the
series on hand to watch Vene-
iuela whip Puerto Rico 6-3 In the
first game and Cuba romp over
Panam 11-3 in the afterpiece.
The victory for Cuba was Its
fifth In a row without a defeat,
Veneauela's triumph plus Pana-
ma's setback placed these two
teams In a deadlock for second
place. Puerto Rico wound up last
with five losses and one tie In
lx starts.
Both the Venezuela and Cuban
wins were featured by heavy hit-
tingin contrast with the pre-
vious games. Venezuela banged
out eleven hits against Puerto
Rico, with Wilmer Fields and
Morris Mozsall each getting
three including a homer apiece.
Al Papal went the route for
Venezuela and had a shutout tor
eight Innings but weakened In
the ninth and gave up three
runs. Dwight (Red) Adams was
Puerto Rico's loser for the sec-
ond time.
Cuba blasted out 16 base hits
off Pat Patrickthe loser, Al,
Ptate and Alberto Osorlo. Pan-
am was held hltless for seven
and one-third Innings by no-hit
no-run pitcher Thomas Fine. Ed-

Panama got two more hits and
two bases on balls for their only
three runs in the final Inning.

In the first game these two

"Mort" for four safeties, while
Hughes gave up three hits to the

T NEWSPAPER
TWENTY-SEVENTH YEAR
WASHINGTON. Feb. 27 (UP)
Jiewbold Morris announced
plans today to demand an In-
come accounting from all key
Government workers as the first
major step In his drive against
corruption.
The clean-up director said
quesilonnarles will be handed to
officials and top employes next
week with orders to answer up
or face Immediate dismissal.
Presumably, the demand lor
furi statements of Income will
apply to everyone In the top
echelon of the executive branch
of the government except Presi-
dent Truman.
This would Include Attorney
General J. Howaid McGrath,
Morris' "Boss'' whose Income al-
ready Is a source of Interest to
a House Judiciary subcommit-
tee.
The subcommittee meets to-
morrow to consider Harold
Stassen's charges that McGrath
has become a millionaire while
In public office.
The Morris plan for getting
Income Information was coupled
with these other developments:
1) The Senate judiciary com-
mittee voted to refuse him Im-
munity powers and postponed
action on his request for author-
ity to supoena witnesses.
2) Sen. Homer Ferguson (R-
Mlch.) disclosed he will Intro-
duce legislation tightening re-
strictions on ex-employes of the
Internal Revenue Bureau who
seek to handle tax cases before
the government.
The Senate committee's ac-
tion came on President Tru-
man's request that Morris be al-
lowed to grant witnesses Im-
munity from prosecution.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27 (UP)
The United States Is commit-
ted formally to go to the aid of
33 countries if they are attacked
and soon will have "all for one,
one for all" agreements with
four others, a survey showed
today.
The commitment is laid down
In such mutual defense agree-
ments as the 1947 Rio pact sign-
ed by 21 Western hemlspehere
nations, the 1949 North Atlantic
pact signed by 14 countries and
the proposed treaties with Jap-
an, Australia, New Zealand and
the Philippines.
Slmillarly, all the countries
Involved have promised to help

are attacked.

Morris Is anxious to have sub-

directed all government em-
ployes to cooperate with him
lully. But subpoena would be
needed for "outsiders."
Both the Senate and House
groups are believed reluctant to
vote on the Issue until Morris'
connection with a highly pro-
fitable surplus tanker deal has
been celared up.
The Senate Permanent In-
vestigating Committee has turn-
ed up evidence that Morris' law

The program will Include ma-

pledge extends to islands and
possessions of the signatory
powers, attack on their Tea-
sels or aircraft and on any
occupation troops Inside treaty
limits.
While the treaties do not call
for use of force in the event of
an attack, the effect of the
agreements is such that the
United States would be expect-
ed to fight.
Its position as the citadel of
the free world adds to this
obligation.
In addition, enemy attacks In
some areas outside the 37 na-
tions probably would bring
American retaliation.
The United States stepped In-
to South Korea to repel the
Communist Invasion although It
had no formal treaty with the
small UN.-sponsored country.
The United States and Its Al-
lies also would be alarmed about
an attack on Yugoslavia, Spain,
Africa, the Middle Bast and
Southeast Asia.
The United States already has
a military assistance agreement

sian, Yugoslavia.

MacArthur Takes
Name Out Of 2
More Primaries
WASHINGTON, Feb. 27 (UP)
Gen. Douglas MacArthur with-
drew from two Presidential pri-
maries today amid reports by
Sen. Robert A. Taifa supporters
that the general personally has
assuerd Taft that he favors him
for President.
MacArthur took his name off
the Presidential preference bal-
lots In Pennsylvania and Min-
nesota.
As he has in other races. Mac-
Arthur said his name had been
entered "without consultation
with me and without my ap-
proval." ^
Sen. Estes Kefaver (D-
Tenn.l, avowed candidate for
the Democratic Presidential no-
mination, also withdrew from
his party' primary In Minne-
sota.
This left Sen. Hubert H.
Humphrey (D-Minn.) unoppos-
ed as a "favorite son" candidate
on the Democratic ticket.
Many Republics polticos
here view MacArthur as a pos-
sible compromise GOP Presiden-
tial nominee in the event of a
deadlock between Taft and Gen.
Dwlght D. Elsenhower at the
nomination convention next
July.
A MacArthur candidacy might
hurt Taffs chances since both
men have support In the Re-
Eubllcan wing opposed to Elsen-
ower's candidacy.
Other political developments:
1) The Georgia Democratic
executive committee formally
urged Sen. Richard B. Russell
(D-Ga.) to seek the Democratic
Presidential nomination. Russell
refused to comment pending a
meeting with a 14-man com-
mittee delegation.
2) A state-wide drive was un-
derway by California Democra-
tic leaders to enter a full slate
of delegates pledged to Eisen-
hower in their primary in June.
8) Oklahoma Democratic lead-
ers prepared to give Sen. Robert
A. Kerr (D-Okla.) unqualified
backing as the Democratic no-
minate, without reference to
President Truman's decision on
whether to run. Kerr has enter-
ed the Nebraska primary against
Kefauver.
Friday
Under the interchange plan,
eiant Eastern and TWA Constel-
lation planes will link Miami
and both Los Angeles and San
Francisco, via Tampa, Houston,
Dallas, Fort Worth, Amarillo
and Phoenix, Ariz.
The service will be Inaugur-
ated at the earliest possible
date. i.
Eastern will handle the huge,
300-mlle-an hour planes be-
tween Miami and Houston;
Braniff between Houston and
Amarillo; and TWA between
Amarillo and Los Angeles and
San Francisco.
The new coast-to-coast inter-
change arrangement developed
out of an application filed by
Braniff, Eastern and TWA, three
of the world's leading airlines,
last August., The application
came In response to an order of
the board published July 19,
3951.
This order said it appeared
there "may be a public need
for through, transcontinental
service by Interchange Pf*"
tions over the ron tea of East-
ern, Braniff and TWA."
The three airlines are already
preparing schedules covering
the new service.
Braniff Airways and Eastern
already fly an Interchange be-
tween Denver, Colorado, and
Miami. Florida, via Oklahoma
City and Memphis, Tennessee.
Braniff provides four-engine
service between Chicago and
eight Latin American countries,
ilitles the organization has ever
faced except in time of all-out
war. The goal for the local cam-
paign is $25.000.

Airlines Can't Test Pilots' Judgment
By WADE JONES
NEW YORK, Feb. 27 (NEA>
A goodly number of the 50 pas-
sengers aboard a crack Miami to
New York airliner recently were
reluctant participants In the pi-
lot's attempt to set a new speed
record between the two cities.
Boosted by a booming 160-mlle-
an-hour tall wind, the four-en-
gine plane hit a speed at one, -
point of 610 miles an hour, and carelessness,

During all this the pilot jubi-

could be broken.
That might have been the way
to try to establish a speed record,

This error under stress was
tragically demonstrated in the
crash of an airliner near Mt.
Carmel, Pa., in 1948, when all 4$
people aboard, including famed
showman Earl Carroll, were
killed.
From examination of the
wreckage and from certain
known facts, the CAB determined
that the crew, hi the erroneous
impression the plane was afire,
released a fire extinguisher con-
taining a dangerous gas, and that
the pilot and co-pilot were over-

One of the most fantastic stor-

recorded as flying hours.
