In addition to his mother,
there is no lack of Russell fa-
mily to move into the White
House with Senator Dick. He
has four sisters and seven bro-
thers all living, all marric.i, ali

union on the White House
lawn would look like a con-
vention .
In Washington during the
last few years, Senator Russell
has made his home with one of
his married sisters and her hus-
band, Colonel and Mrs. J. K
Stacy.
But when the Washington
social climbers think of all
the trouble the Trumans
have gone to, rebuilding the
inside of the White House
and getting it all redecor-
ated, there's a shudder over
the possibility of turning
it into a bachelor's den.
Still, it's leap year. And as a
matter of record. Senator Rus-
sell missed by only 24 hours the
tossing of his wool hat into the
political ring on leap year day.
Feb. 29.
The other $64 question raised
by the Russell announcement is
whether a Southernera deep
Southerner, that iscan be no-
minated and elected V/&. Pre-
sident la this day and age.
The last Southerner who
was President was Virginia-
born Woodrow Wilson. But
most people think of him as
a Yankee because he had
been president of Princeton
University and governor of
New Jersey.
Before Wilson, the last South-
erner to be President was Gen.
Zachary Taylor. Mexican War
hero. Just a little over 100 years
ago he was President for 10
monthsfrom March, 1849 to
his death from typhus in July,
1850.
President Taylor was Virginia-
born like six other chief exe-
cutives before him. They were
John Tyler, William Henry Har-
rison, James Monroe, James
Madison, Thomas Jefferson and
George Washington. Andrew
Jackson was born in South Ca-
rolina, and Andrew Johns\n ar^
James Palk in North Carolina.
But ever since the War
Between the States it has
been a fixed tradition of
political folklore that no
Southerner could be elected
President. Last summer
Senator Russell himself
took a dim view of the pros-
peat.
Today he says, "My people
hold a different view. They
don't think geographical resi-
dence is any handicap." The
senator admits that his own
mind has been changed on this
subject.
Senator Russell makes no
bones about where he stands on
the controversial North-South
Issue number one. The Georgian
calls President Truman's civil
rights program a "civil wrongs"
program and "he's ag'ln It."
That in Itself may be enough
to ruin his chances for North-
ern support at Chicago, though
most Democrats would agree
that on every other score. Sen-
ator Russell has all the ability,
experience, Intelligence and in-
tegrity to make a first-claa
President. Even if he is a ba
c helor.
The Democratic convention
vote at Philadelphia In 1948 was
947 1-2 for Truman, 363 for
Russell. Paul V. McNutt got the
other half vote. This year at
Chicago will be 1230 votes.
Without the two-thirds rule, 616
are necessary for a choice.
Therefore the big question at
Chicago has now become wheth-
er Senator Russell and Sen.

u. W.A8HIJOTC.: 7; President Truman had a frank exchange
the other day with Catholic Congressman Clement Zablocki of
Wisconsin regarding Truman's blast at dictator Franco Of Bnein,
Congressman Zablocki didn't approve of the President's action
and bluntly said so.
"It was most unfortunate that your remarks were made about
I he same time that General Elsenhower also spoke out against
Spain," declared the Wiseohsln legislator. agatns
"I naturally feel that we are going to get more out of the
dollars we spend for aiding Atlantic Pact nations if Spain be-
longs to the pact.
"I agree that conditions In Spain are none too happy but
Yugoslavia isn't a democracy either and yet we have given Tito
millions in aid."
Truman replied that his criticism was directed solely at
Franco and not at the Spanish people. v M
Franco was chiefly responsible for the "Intolerance" suffer,
ed by what he called "that minority of minorities" about 80-
000 Spanish Protestants. '
"In some parts of Spain Protestants can't even bury their
dead during the day or mark their graves with tombstones for
fear of inciting demonstrations." declared Truman. "Dictator-
ships encourage that sort of thing."
z,ablockl agreed the situation was "regrettable," but added:

StevensonIf
By Joseph and Stewart Alsop
WASHTNGTON. A strange, high drama is
playing about the rather homely person of Pre-
sident Harry S. Truman these days.
There Is no doubt at all that until a month or
so ago. the President was very strongly inclined
to withdraw from the race, and to back Gov.
Adlal Stevenson of Illinois for the Democratic
nomination.
Since then, all sorts of pressures have been
brought to bear on Truman. And the terrible iso-
lation which the White House imposes on any
man has made him vulnerable to these pressures.
Almost all the Democratic professional poli-
ticians privately believe that Truman's renomina-
tion would tear the party apart. A very large
majority of these professionals favor the nomi-
In Indiana, Gov. Henry Schricker is one of
the few who has publicly announced for Steven-
son as second choice. Michigan's Gov. G. Men-
nen Williams Is privately pro-Stevenson, and so
i.-. his state organization. Illinois is certain for
Etevenson, of course, and Stevenson has Im-
portant strength ln other Important Midwest
siates.
Tne big East Coast states arc without excep-
tion sure to be in the Stevenson column, lf
Truman decides not to run.
New York's powerful Ea Flynn, state Chair-
man Paul Fitzpatrlck. and Sen. Herbert Lehman
are all privately strongly sympathetic to Stev-
enson. Connecticut's Sen. Brien McMahon, who
majority oi tnese proicssinnais ravor me nunu- fjrmi,. ......i. v.." "7... TZ^T^r^v;."r- "~
rh%tno0no With a few exceptions, they do not even dare
to announce publicly ln favor of Stevenson as
second choice, since this might be Interpreted
as hostility to Truman.
At the same time, those whose power is direct-
ly dependent on Truman's continued presence In
the White House are maneuvering astutely.
"Tiiowlng that Truman likes Stevenson person-
ally, they agree that Stevenson Is "a fine man."
But It Is too bad, they say, that his divorce and
other considerations rule him out. Besides, what
th; party needs is a fighterlute Harry Truman
and Stevenson has made it plain he does not
even very much want to run.
In short, Stevenson would make a weak can-
didate, and the President must make the sacrifice
again himself.
Truman would not be human lf all this did not
sound convincing to him.
Yet the fact that the professionals themselves
consider Stevenson an extremely strong candi-
date Is very easy to prove.
For even a partial count of the states which
can be pretty certainly placed ln the Stevenson
column shows that Stevenson Is likely to be no-
minated on the first ballot, if Truman withdraws
and backs the Illinois Governor.
California, for example, can be counted a sure
Stevenson state at the convention. Patrick
Brown, who is swing man between the Roose-
velt and Pauley factions of the California or-
ganization, has already telephoned Stevenson
on his own initiative to tell him that be can
expect the support of the entire California de-
legation If Truman withdraws.
The Northwest Democratic Organizations are
pro-Stevenson
ernor.
Gov. Paul Dever of Massachusetts."who Is
similarly powerful In his state organization, has
actually been touring the country drumming up
Stevenson support on a contingent basis.
The New Jersey state organization is pro-
Stevenson, and Pennsylvania's powerful Demo-
cratic boss David Lawrence (of Pittsburgh) has
also let the Stevenson backers know that he
will be ln their corner lf Truman withdraws.
In the South, Gov. James F. Byrnes of South
Carolina (who is an old friend of Stevenson's)
has agreed at least tentatively with the other
Southern leaders not to split the party if Stev-
enson is nominated, as they will certainly do if
Truman runs again.
In short, if Truman decides to hand on the,
mantle to Stevenson, he will find the resistance
almost non-exlsteni.
Partly this is because there are so few al-
ternatives. Chief Justice Fred Vlnson has taken
himself out of the running, as reported some
time ago in this space.
No one now takes very seriously the candidacy
of Sen. Estes Kefauver, who has alienated not
only Truman but many party regulars; Sen.
Robert Kerr of Oklahoma is given no chance
without Truman's all-out support and even
in this unlikely case, there would be powerful
resistance to the nomination of this big oilman
who opposed the civil rights program.
But the real reason for the extraordinarily
widespread support for Stevenson described
above is the simple and obvious one. The pro-
fessionals believe that Stevenson would be the
strongest possible candidate, and in view of

"The conference on psychological strategy hearda candid re-
port on the shoddy treatment of Iron Curtain escapees from a
a man who had a ringside sent Philip E. Ryan, former chief
of mission of the International Refugee Organization.
"They exist in overcrowded camps with little hooe for emi-
gration, practlcallv no possibility for employment, and no means
at their disposal to fight back at the thing (Communism) which
.has broken their lives," reported Ryan.
With regard to. our "policy" on refugees. Ryan explained:
"On the one hand, we aoparentlv encourage flight from In-
tolerable conditions under Communism. The oicture'of life in
the West is tantamount to an invitation to 'Come over to our
side.'
"Once they are in the West, however, we renounce responsi-
bility.
"After we have milked them of any information they can
gjve us, they are turned over to the German government, Which
already Is burdened with over 9,000.000 German refugees.
"Is it any wonder that some refugees, disillusioned by their
reception in the West, have returned to the East to be exoloited
and held up as exa moles of the unreliability of thc West?
"Thus we hand the Russians a weapon which they can use
effectivelv to convince their listeners thst we merely mouth false
promises."
One Iron Curtain refugee, bitter because attention was lavish-
ed only on those who escape dramatically, as ln th Czech "Free-
dom Train" last summer, grumbled to Ryan: "The only way
you'd get attention now Is to be shot across (the Iron Curtain)
ln a cannon."
OFF-AGAIN. ON-AGAIN
A New Jersey group, led by Mavor John Kenny of Jersey City
and Democratic Congressmen Ed Hart and Al Siminski. calling
on the President recently, got the impression that he will make
no pronouncement on his c-ndldacy until clo.c? to convention
time in Julv.
He indicated:
1> That he hasn't m-rt up his mind about runnine again:
2) That he is coric?ivrd only with the "day-to-day" handling
of world and domestic Issues and letting the future dictate his
political moves.
"In other words, I am going along to the best of mv ability
doin" the Job the people pay me to do." the President said.
He was much more snec'fle on another matter keeping
forri-r jersev City boss Frank Haeue in the doghouse.
Mayor Kennv charged that Hague was conducting an un-
dercover campaigti to deprive New Jersey of Federal housing oro-
jects In revenge against Kennv and other Democrats who def*"**
ed his once-powerful Dolltical machine.
"We are sorely In need of defense housing, chiefly in north-
ern New Jersey." declared the mavor who replaced Hague.
"But Hague Is so vindictive that we have reports that he U
tryin* to divert these projects to New York and Pennsylvania."
Truman promised to give the matter his "personal atten-
tion." adding tersely. I guess some people don't know when to
quit."
NOTEWhen Kenny recalled that he had met the Presi-
dent's daughter. Margaret, and his brother. Vivian. Truman in-
terposed: "Yes. but vou haven't met the boss. Some day I'd like
to Introduce you to Mrs. Truman "

TV Unfreeze Not Expected
To Bring Fast Expansion
WASHINGTON, March (UP)
The government is getting
ready to lift Its freeze on new
television stations sometime this
month, Informed sources said
today.
The action, however, will not
bring an Immediate mushroom-
ing of new TV stations across
the nation.
Many problems must be solved
before there will be any large
Increase In the number of out-
lets.
The Federal Communications
Commission Is working on a
complex plan for dividing 82
TV channels among some 1,500
communities.
New channels will be opened
In the very high frequently
(VHF) and ultra high frequency
(UHF> bands of tehe television
spectrum.
They must be alloted so that
the signals of one station will
not Interfere with those sent by
another station using the same
channel.
Once the plan la completed,
the FCC can then atart sifting
through the hundreds of ap-
plications for stations which
were filed during the freeze.
Lifting of the three-and-a-
half-year-old freeze may bring
from 10 to 20 new stations on
the air by year's end. Some
optimistic observers believe the
figure may go as high as 23.
Thereafter, new TV stations
probably will go on the air at
the rate of about 275 a year,
depending on the rate of pro-
cessing applications and avail-
ability of materials for trans-
mitters.
The freeze has been in effect
since Sept. 30, 1948.
The new allocation plan was
delayed for months while some
questions as color television
were considered by the FCC.
Once lt is lifted, the commis-
sion will set a period, running
until about July 1,'durlng which
applications for new TV sta-
tions will be received. More
than 500 already are on file.
Where there Is no competi-
tion In a particular city, the
processing will be simple.
o------
But where there are two or
more applicants, hearings must
be held to determine who is best
qualified to serve the public
interest.
There currently are 108 TV
stations serving 64 market areas
with a population of about 88.-
000,000.
Authorities said nearly 1,900
new stations eventually will be
built.
Manufacturers are certain
that needs for transmitters, an-
tennas, cameras and other sta-
tion equipment can be met from
present Inventories and material
allocations.

I WASN'T FOOLED...
When you got to be my age,
you're bound to know a few
things... as my daughter found
out.
After she and Tom art up
housekeeping, they asked me
over to dinner. She started the
meal with chicken noodle aoup.
It waa simply wonderful, and
I told her eo. "But," I continued,
"don't you try to fool me, young
lady. This ia Campbell's Chick-
on Noodle Soup. The minute I
taated the delicious piece* of
tender chicken and those good
egg noodles... the minute Z
saw that rich golden broth
I knew."
"Well, you're right!" Nancy
aaud. They roallydo use plump,
fuB-breastad chtehsna And
Campbell's Chicken Noodle
Soup is so easy to prepare
you Just add an equal asnourat
of water, beat and serve" :

More land is needed because

jective of attaining 100 percent

ment of the 45th Reconnais-
sance Battalion stationed at
Fort Clayton; and Headquarters
and service Company, 45th Re-
connaissance Battalion, also
from Fort Clayton.
The Military Fund Campaign
this year began on February
29 and will be formally closed
on the last day fo March. In
view of the great -relief work
provided in this area by the
Red Cross during the past years,
the Joint Military Committee is

will be successful.
All Armed Forces
Here To Use Same
Vehicle Tag In '53
The Armed Forces of the Ca-
ribbean Command stationed In
Panama will begin using a com-
mon vehicle post tag In 1953. a
spokesman for the Panama
Area Joint Committee has an-
nounced.
For years past the three ser-
vices have used separate type
post tags to identify vehicles
entering and leaving the vari-
ous military installations. This
has resulted in confusion in
some cases.
Realizing this, Sgt. Robert W.
Hardy of Fort Amador suggest-
ed to the Panama Area Joint
Committee that all vehicle post
tags be standardized. The idea
was adopted after study, as it
resulted In economies, besides
making identifications easier.
Hardy has been rewarded
publicly for his suggestion, and
he received a three-day pass
as his award.
The Joint Committee is a
group of officers from the three
military services who study
problems affecting the three
branches of the Armed Forces,
and solve these problems with
economy of operations as their
objective.

CONCORD, N. H., March 6.(UP) Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower's forces claimed last night
he is the only Republican Presidential candidate
who can win independent votes and break the
Democratic "Solid South."
Fighting desperately to head off an eleventh
hour drive by Sen. Robert A. Taft, Eisenhower's
supporters began an almost door to door campaign
in an effort to bring out a heavy vote in New
Hampshire's primary election next Tuesdav.
They seek a clear cut victory for the General
by winning a majority of the state's 14 nacional
convention delegates and heading the sactioned
popularity poll.
tratlon. and friend of Eisenhow-
er, said the general's election was
necessary to preserve the two
party system in this country.
"Of all the responsible candi-
dates General Eisenhower is the
onlv one who can win the Inde-
pendent vote and break inside
the 'Solid South' and m this

The Taft headquarters were
apprehensive that the heavy
snow fall may curtail the sena-
te answer to Taft, Puller said
New Hampshire law requires ro-
tation of names of delegates to
national conventions but makes
no provision for the presidential
oreference portion of the bal-
lot.
He said he had acted at his
own discretion on the matter
which he said was purely a duty
of the secretary of state.
The Democratic fight, featur-
ing President Truman and Sen.
Estes Kefauver settled down to
a test between a closely knit,
smooth running organization
and a "cracker barrel" campaign
by the tall soft-spoken senator
from Tennessee.
Kefauver apparently feels his
only chance Is winning the pre-
ferential contest.
Delegates favoring Gen. ,

Ervin Hohensee challenged a
claim by Taft men that MacAr-
thur was supporting the senator
although he had admitted he had
not talked with the general a-
bout his candidacy.
"We still have a full slate of
delegates and alternates," Ho-
hensee said. "We expect them to
be elected."
The MacArthur supporters said
Taft's forces were spreading re-,
ports of backing from the gen-'
eral "because they know they can
not win in New Hampshire."
Some sources at Taft head-
quarters hinted the MacAr-
thur campaign was being posh-
ed by the Eisenhower group in
a method to lure votes away
from the senator. Hohensee
denied the report.

CRISTOBAL
Sunday. March 2, the Captain
Stewart Trophy Shoot was held
at Cristobal Oun Club range.
This twenty-five yard handicap
event proved the undoing of
some of the shooters. They could-
n't figure out how much to lead
the birds, even though everyone
was giving advice. T. J. Tassln,
the long range specialist took
this easily with a 48 out of 50.
Runner-up to Tass was Bill
Cunningham, who connected
with 80. Chas. Dlsharoon and
Pop Sanders each cracked 88 to
tie for third place. In the second
division H. Harts and Harold Ro-
dell tied for honors with 34 while
Lee carr came In with 33 for
third place. Capt. Spencer, R.
Taylor, John Turrell, Joe Kuet-
er, Bill Kllgallen and Grady
HardUon "also ran," In that or-
der.
In the 50-blrd, sixteen-yard
race, which followed the above
trophy shoot, Captain Spencer
figured it was time to collect a
few dividends on his Investment,
and proceeded to do so. His 48
was tops, although Tassln and
Sanders were crowding him too
close for comfort with 47 each.
Spencer didn't take any chances,
and really "bore sighted" the last
three birds.
The second division first and
second plata was split between
Chas. Dlsharoon and Bill Cun-
ningham. For third prize In this
division, Kueter got a smell of
the now empty gravy dish. Rodell
headed the list of those who
nearly won, followed by Kllgal-
len, Turrell, Taylor and Carr.
Participating In our shoot was
Mr. John Turrell of New York
City, who Is presently stopping
at Hotel El Panama. He Is asso-
ciated with the New York Ath-
letic Club, where he shoots ire-
Juently. Since bis retirement
rom an executive position with
Cluet and Peabody, he spends a
great deal of his time traveling
and seldom passes up a chance
to shoot, when near a gun club.
He commented on the great
change that had taken place
here, since his last visit, twelve
!ears ago. Too bad that you must
save Friday, John, we all enjoy-
ed your visit.
All trap shooters should put a
red ring around Sunday, April 6,
on your calendar, as that will be
the last registered shoot on this
side of the Isthmus, before the
State Shoot, to be held In Balboa
April 28 and 27. Better come in
and warm up so you'll bo "hot"
on "payday."
Trap Manager BUI Cunning-
ham wishes to announced that
a registered trap shoot featur-
ing fifty 16-yard targets and 23
pair of doubles wllL be held at
the Balboa Gun Club Saturday
afternoon, March 8th, starting
at 2 o'clock sharp.
The Balboa Oun Club has se-
lected a beautiful trophy to
be awarded to the overall high
gun so polish up your shooting
Irons and concentrate on Im-
proving your skill to get your
share of the 8300.00 added mo-
ney at the State Championship
Shoot at the end of April.
To get back to Saturday's
shoot there will be an entry
fee of 82.00 to be divided two
classes, 40 percent, 30 percent,
and 20 percent. And for the
skeet enthusiasts, the skeet
traps will be open from one to
two o'clock before the trap
shoot.

TODAY'S GAME
Lincoln Life vs. Police.
The AFGETs edged the Fire-
men 8 to 7 yesterday afternoon
at Pacific Little League Park,
scoring the winning run In the
bottom of the last inning of play.
The Smokies took a five-fun
lead In the top of the first In-
ning on four hits. The Federal
Boys came back with three runs
on two hits In the bottom half.
The Firemen increased their lead
adding two more runs In the sec-
ond Inning on two base hits.
In the fourth inning AFGE tied
up the game, scoring four runs
on two nits aided by the loose
play of the Smokies who com-
mitted three errors. The winning
run for AFOE was scored in the
bottom of the sixth when Billy
Castleman singled with one out
and went to second on a passed
ball and then stole third base.
Bobby Wills promptly singled to
score Billy with the winning run.

OUTBOARD RACES AT GATUN SUNDAY
Three Refuse
Lie Test After
$1 Million Take
BOSTON, March 8 (UP).
Three Brink's, Inc., employes,
who were on duty the night the
armored car firm was robbed
o $1,119.000 In the nation's
biggest cash holdup, refused to
suDmit to lie detector tests at
state police headquarters here
yesterday.
The trio, whose names were
withheld, were summoned un-
expectedly lor questioning in
connection with the still un-
solved holdup. But police
would not disclose why they
were summoned.
Detective Lt. Michael J. Cul-
llnane, slate police lie detector
expert, "interviewed" the men
and sent the results of his
questioning to Boston police
headquarters and to Atty-Gen.
Francis E. Kelly, according to
a spokesman.
The state police spokesman
wo.:ld not say why the three
had been singled out for ques-
tioning when there were six
employes, all carrying pistols,
on duty at Brink's north end
office-garage when the robbery
was staged Jan. 17, 1950.
He did indicate, however, that
the trio might be called back
later and asked again to take
the test.
But the spokesman also cau-
tioned that he "did not look
for an early solution" of the
Btlnk'a job.
It was known that there
were five men on duty in the |
second floor counting room
the night nine Halloween-
masked gunmen passed !
through six "locked" doors to
the office. A sixth was re-
ported to have been on duty
nearby in the garage.
The five in the money room
were bound with rope and tape
after they were disarmed.
The masked gunmen took 17
minutes to pack the money in
laundry bags and make their
escape but they left rope and
a cap behind.
A stolen truck believed to!
have been used in the holdup1
vas later found in the town
dump at nearby Stoughton. cut
to bits with an acetylene torch.
Two of the four revolvers
stolen from the Brink's office
were found discarded in subur-
tan Somerville.
Despite these clues and re->
wards totaling $150,000, no trace
of the bandits or of the cash
has been found since.
And the Investigation itself
Ml estimated to have cost
some $500,000 thus far.

Justice Dept. Nixes Review
Of 6 Years Unpressed Case
WASHINGTON, Mar. 6 (UP)
The Justice Department yester-

by House investigators for a list
of all cases over the past six
years which were not prosecu-

recommended by other Federal
agencies.
The department said the task

A Panamanian rescuedby the

formation on definite cases if
they are based on specific
charges "supported by credible
evidence."
These will be honored, it said,
"unless public interest or neces-
sity requires otherwise."
The list had been requested by
chairman Frank L. Chelf (D-
Ky.) of a House Judiciary Sub-
committee investigating Attorney
General J. Howard McGralh
and his management of the Jus-
tice Department.
The subcommittee said lt need-
ed the list as the first major
step in its inquiry.
Rep. Kenneth. B. Keating
(R-N.Y.), sponsor of the in-
quiry, said McGrath must re-
alize that the committee and
not the Justice Department
will "dictate the scope of our
inquiry."
Rep. Patrick J. Hillings (R-
Calif.), a subcommittee member,
said lt appeared that McGrath is
"afraid of an investigation." He
said it "appears" McGrath has
changed his mind about cooper-

LONDON, March 6 (UP)
Prime Minister Winston Church-
ill blamed Inadequate United;
States aid last night for a lag-
ging British rearmament pro-'
gram which he said will require,
foyr rather than three years to
achieve its goals.
Churchill said he relied on "the
Commons debate on a white pa-
Ser outlining an estimated de-!
ense expenditure of $4,094,160,-,
000 for the 1952-'53 fiscal year. |
Churchill told the crowded
House that he does not believe
that war is imminent or even In-
evitable.
If time is used wisely, he said,
the West has "more hope of
warding off the frightful cat-
astrophe from our struggling,
ill-informed, bewildered and
almost helpless human race."
Churchil lsald he relied on "the
rapidly growing and already
overwhelming power of the Unit-
ed States In atomic weapons to
provide the deterrents against an
act of aggression during the pe-
riod of forming a defensive front
in western Europe.
"I hope and believe this will
deter," he said, "but I cannot
make promises, or prophecies, or
give guarantees."
"Meanwhile," he said, "the
$13,160,000,000 British rearma-
ment program has not received
aid on a scale in keeping with
the defense burden undertaken
by the late Prime Minister (La-
borlte Clement Attlee) or with
our needs."
Much of what has been pro-
mised' Britain by the United
SUtes to help carry out the
ambitious three years rearm-
ament program has not yet
been received, Churchill said, I
and delivery of other promised
aid is only now beginning.
"We are to receive $112,000,000,
in machine tools," he said.
"Delivery is only beginning and'
we hope it will be completed in
about 15 months time."
"Following the recent studies
of the temporary council com-'
mlttee, the U. S. government has
allotted to us the sum of $300,-
000,000, none of which has yeti
been received.
question of reproaches on either
side.
"But the facts remain that th
rearmament program Is much
more likely to be carried out in
four years than In three."
He also pointed out that raw
materials for Britain's export
industries must be given prio-
rities over rearmament, if Brit-
ain Is to rearm and still re-
main solvent. |
Labor Ponders Party Split
Negro Was Not Beaten,
Just Slapped Sheriff

JACKSON, Miss.. Mar. 6 (UP)
A huskv ex-sheriff on trial for
civil rights violation admitted
today that he arrested a Negro
robbery suspect without a war-
rant and denied him a hearing.
Robert E. Lee. former sheriff
of Pike County, also admitted
that he struck Murry (Sunshine)
Grav "several times with my
slap-stick."
But he hit him "only Just
enough necessary to control
him." the defendant told a U.S.
district court Jury.
The case against Lee and four
of his erstwhile fellow officers
was expected to go to a Jury late
today.
The five are accused of trying
to elicit a confession from Gray,
now a Korean soldier who was
furloughed to testify, by beating
him and denying; him due pro-
cesses of law.
Grav said yesterday that he
refused to confess a crime he
hadn't
beatings by the group of officers
He was later released and the
robbery charges were not press-
ed.
Lee. who stands six-feet-three
and weighs an athletic 205
pounds, denied that he strapped
Gray while the Negro was hand-
cuffed to a tree.
But under cross-examination
he admitted that he had not
sworn out a warrant for his ar-
rest or granted him a hearing on
the charges of robbing a Magno-
lia. Miss., filling station.
He said Gray "didn't ask" to
see a warrant hen he was ar-
rested .
He said, he and other officers
took Gray "to the woods because
he said he would show us where
he had hid the money from the
robbery.
"We spread out to look for the
monev when he broke loose and
ran." Lee testified.
"t hit him. I don't remember
LONDON, March 6 (UP) The
top dozen men of the British La-
bor Party met today to consider
disciplinary action against those
party members whose revolt
against the "armament program
last night cracked the party wide
open.
Former Prime Minister Clem-
ent Attlee was faced with the de-
cision of whether to expel left-
wing leader Aneurln Bevan from
the party, when Bevan, defying
explicit orders In Commons, led
56 other Labor members In a
vote against the rearmament
Erogram which Attlee himself
egan.
Political observers did not be-
lieve that Attlee would dare run
the risk of expelling Bevan.
Such action, lt was believed,
might well set up a separate left-
wing party and finalize the
break-up of the Labor Party.
A smiling and ebullient Win-
ston Churcnlll watched Laborltes
fight among themselves yester-
day before the House gave ap-
proval to his defense program for
1952--58 for the expenditure of
$4,904,160,000.
The decision reached by Attlee
and his top aides was not expect-
ed to be made known until a full
meeting of the Labor Parliamen-
tary Party next week.

whether it was with my fist or
my hand. Then he turned a-
round and grabbed me by the
shirt and tore lt off.
"I took out my slao stick (a
pliable billv about a foot long).
"I may have hit him several
times to keep that Negro from
whipping me.
"Nobody ever hit that Negro
but me. And I didn't use any
three-foot strap like that Negro
said."
Lee added that Gray was then
handcuffed to a tree while the
officers searched for the money
but they didn't find it. Gray was
returned to Jail and two days la-
ter he complained that his arms
hurt.
Gray had what looked like
"brush burns" on his arm*. Lee
said, and he "sent a boy to get
something to put on them."
Later Gray complained again
and Lee took him to a doctor, the
ex-sherlff testified.
