Monkeys, Mice Rocketed 80 Miles Into Space
As Tests For Earth's Forthcoming Rocket Men
WASHINGTON, March JO
today that five monkeys and ten
mice had been rocketed Into the
universe 80 miles from earth in
initial efforts to assure the safe-
ty of human beings who will man
and ride space rockets.
Four of the five monkeys were
later killed when parachutes at-
tached to their capsule contain-
ers failed. The fifth monkey
landed safely, but died of heat
exposure in a western United
States desert because of delay In
locating his capsule.
The mice survived and appar-
ently suffered no 111 effects.
Special Instruments recorded
no 111 effects and no significant
changes In the heart and blood
vessel system of the animals.

Friends And Acquaintances
By BOB RUARK
NEW YORK. It was Just a little shocking
to see the pictures of the smiling Japanese Ad-
miral Kichisaburo Nomura being piped aboard
the battleship Wisconsin, with full honors
sldeboys, bosun's whistle and smiles all around.
You remember Nomura he and another Jap
named Kurusu were the flimflam artists who
were pedaling peace to kill enougn time to allow
the Jap naval air arm, leave Its carriers to fiat-
:en Pearl Harbor.
li was diplomatic deceit of a high order that
Nomura-san and Kurusu-san practiced, and they
practiced It so well that tney became trie tlrst
popular wnipplng boys o the American people
wnen we atarieo off to war.
It was only 1(1 tiny years ago, and sometimes
it seems a million years in tne past. Those
were the days when the Japs were changed

Now we are all friends again, I see, with No-
mura playing honored guest, and over 400 Jap-
anese war criminals being ae-purged from Mac-
nrtnur's old lisis. The Japs are valued allies In
tne East, and once again our little brown bro-
Forgiveness is divine, I know, and wars are
not made by people, I know, but It still feels
:unny to see the "global criminals" once more
as honored members of polite society.
It is almost possible that If they found Adolf
Hitler hiding in a little mohntain town some-
where they would fetch him forth with honor.
It seems almost a shame, in that light, that
we executed so many war criminals, for obvi-
ously what was bad yesterday does not have to
be bad today, and yesterday's villains are to-
But it's a queer feeling for those of us and
there were quite a lot of us who spent two,
three, four year* overseas, dedicated to the kill-
ing of our present allies.
The Germans are our friends now, too, and
that feels funny.
Ten years ago I was riding an ammunition
ship in the North Atlantic, and you could play
leapfrog on Nazi periscopes from Sandy Hook
to Loch Ewe.
It seems odd to recall that 10 years ago one
of my nice, fresh-faced kids asked me seriously
if it would be okay to shoot Germans in the
My friend Frank Far/ll went through a bit-
ter siege against Japs, on Pelellu a rat hunt
so awful that Frank's face served as a model

ly looked like after k few weeks of Jungle war-
It must be a weirdNeeling tor'Hi the Far-
rells today to realize that Wat they fought so
relentlessly on government order i now a cher-
ished friend and ally.
1 know it Is wrong of me, and certamly un-
christian of me, but I don't believe I am ever
polng to be real Joyous about Japs or over-
tuddly with Germans. Individuals possibly, yes,
but masses, no.
I was afraid too much afraid in air raids
in London, afraid at sea of submarines, afraid
and monstrously bored on islands.
It was a long, long time before I quit leaping
out of beds at night when whistles blew or
planes flew low.
You cannot live on bitterness, of course, and
tnere is no sense in prolonging a finished feud,
especially when they tell you you've won it, but
I bet figures on the brotherhood of man as felt
by veterans toward our new allies would sur-
It Is physically Impossible to tell a man con-
stantly for several years that one thing is good
and the other bad, and then expect him to

We need the Germans, and we need the Japs,
and the war is over, and all is well, but I would
personally like to see a little less of this Joyous
orotherhood between the likes of Nomura and
our current fighting men.
War may be a game to the professionals, with
ell forgiven when the final whistle toots, but to
amateurs it seemed pretty serious at the time.
We pipe Nomura over a battlewagon's side to-
nay, in friendship and in honor. Ten years ago,
but for diplomatic immunity, we would have
cheerfully strung him up from the yardarms.

WASHINGTON. Sometimes a great, historic

amidst so much confusion that it goes on al-
It is extraordinarily difficult to take serious-
ly the notion that the ancient dream of a fed-
eral union of Western Europe may actually be
lealleed there are so many excellent reasons
for believing that it will never happen.
Yet sober and experienced men. like former
Ambassador to France David Bruce and even
General Dwight D. Eisenhower, seriously believe
that it may well happen, and quite soon.
The agreements reached in general terms at
the Lisbon conference, Including the European
army plan, should be worked out In detail and
formally approved by the participating govern-
ments by the end of April.
This will set the stage for the ratification ol
the European army agreement, by the parlia-
ments of France. Germany, the Low Countries,
It is hoped again, perhaps rather wishfully
that all these parliaments will have ratified
by July 1. or a little later. The Schuman Plan
will almost certainly have been ratified already
by July 1.
If and when these two agreements come into
legal existence. Western Europe will have taken
an enormous step forward, at least on paper,
towards federal union.
The military significance of the European ar-
my plan lies, of course, in the fact that Ger-
many will thus be enabled to make a contribu-
tion to the defense of the West.
But even if all goes well, the European army

For such reasons, it is now intended to eall
a conference of the governments of the six par-
ticipating nations, shortly after the European
army plan Is ratified, in orde* to try to lay the
roundwork for actual European federation.
It is intended to consider at this conference
such matters as a central European political
authority limiting each nation's sovereignty; a
joint taxation and financial policy, and the low-

In the second place, the whole movement to-

The European army plan was proposed ifti-

Drew Pearson soys: Auto industry now has more steel
than it needs; Motor moguls tone down their once bel-
ligerent demands on government; Defense program
slow-down makes materials plentiful.
WASHINGTONA significant, unpubllcised meeting of
motor moguls with government mobilization officials took place
the other day at which the auto Industry was allocated more
steel than it really needed.
What happened at that meeting indicates a slight deflation-
ary trend in business; also that steel has suddenly loosened up;
and that the defense program, supposed to use up steel, has
On Dec, 29 a similar meeting took place at which motor
moguls talked tough, moaned over Detroit unemployment,
brought in Sen. Blalr Moody and Gov. "Soapy" Williams to help
them get more steel.
"Gasoline Charley" Wilson, head of General Motors, was ev-
en caustic with his old friend, "Electric Charley" Wilson, former-
ly of General Electric, who now heads defense mobilisation, and
scoffed at the idea of giving the motor industry only 630,000 tons
of steel for the 2nd quarter of 1852.
At the recent meeting of motor moguls, however, it was a
This time auto manufacturers were quiet and cooperative,
weren't too anxious to have the government drastically Increase
their steel quotas.
Deductions from the meeting were twofold:
1. That there was now ample steel on hand.
2. That motor moguls were not sure they could sell too many
more cars. It appeared that they had reached the leveling off
ROLLCALL ON PRODUCTION
These deductions came from questions asked by Courtney
Johnson, director of the National Production Authority motor
When he asked whether the industry would use up its quotas
on steel and other materials already given it for the first quar-
ter of 1062, L. L. Colbert, president of Chrysler, answered a
But Irving Duffy, vice president of Ford, was not so confi-
"Late deliveries on equipment may slow us up," he said. "We
may not use all of our quotas."
H. H. Curtice of General Motors replied that his firm would
use up all its materials for the first quarter, as did S. G. Baits
But George Romney of Nash. Leroy Bpencer of Packard and
Harold Vance, president of Studebaker, Indicated that they prob-
ably would not use up all the material already allotted them
by the government.
MORE BUTTER THAN GUNS
Finally, NPA's Johnson asked whether the auto industry had
any problems getting sufficient steel, aluminum and copper.
Though copper still was tight, all auto executives replied
that they had ample supplies of steel and aluminum.
The mills are now trying to sell us steel," commented Duffy
of Ford. "We may even have to shut down some of our own
mills." (Ford operates steel mills to supply its needs for caf
"Steel is so abundant, it may result in some steel-mill shut-
downs," replied Colbert of Chrysler. "I can't understand the cop-
per shortage." he added. "I believe the shortage is due to mal-
Baits of Hudson said his company was okay on all materials
except copper, and suggested that a little copper be taken out
of the stockpile for the time being.
Net conclusion gained from the meeting was that the auto-
mobile industry, though howling for steel and aluminum two
months ago, had more than tney needed and could produce
/more cars than they could sell.
In other words, the raw materials of the nation, except in
a few cases such as copper, are far ahead of the slow-moving
procurement officers in the Army, Navy and Air Force.
To paraphrase one government official: "We now have
plenty of butter but not many guns."
NOTEAs a result of the meeting, the automobile industry
was allocated 1,050,000 tons of steel for the second quarter, as
against 030,000 for the first quarter. '

Dwight D. Eisenhower's Presidential boosters hail-
ed his huge write-in-vote in Minnesota yesterday
as a clear call from the grass roots for his nomina-

Simultaneously, National Democratic chairman
Frank E. McKinney predicted at Key West, Fla.,
" that President Truman probably would run again

It brought from Elsenhower
boosters such expressions as

pretation that it is a clear cut
demonstration that the Amer-

their next President.

Taft Interpreted the outcome
as a "definite rebuff" to Stas-
aen, who ran as a. native son.
Stasien, who said he was
"very pleased" with the re-
ulta, especially the poor show-
ing by Taft, has caused Taft
considerable irritation by fil-
ing against the OhW Senator
at every opportunity.
Taft'a campaign headquarters

ing with a statement asserting
that "despite weeks of feverish
effort and expenditure of large
sums of money." the Elsen-
hower camp failed to get more
votes than stassen.

veloped after Elsenhower won

enthusiasm over its success.

One sign of love is beinp, ready-
to forgive. If we are really sorry
for any wrong we have done, we
know that we can always count
on God's forgiveness. Since He
cares for us deeply and takes
great pride in what He can make
of u. it brings Him pain when
wfe do wrong.
That is what we mean by 'son'
letting any kind of evil that we
do or desire gel between us and
God. It means turning our back
on Him and forgetting Him. But
no matter how often we do it. He
never stops caring. He never
turns His back on us or forgets
u He loves us too much to let
Aid so whenever we are ready
to turn about and remember the
Great Companion who is waiting
for us. we find Him ready to
greet us and take our hand once
more, because He always refuses
to believe that our worst self Is
our real self".
To feel sorrow for what we have
done and to be welcomed back
by-Godthat is what forgiveness
Is. It cannot undo the wrong wej
have done. It cannot wipe out
the pain we have caused Him.
But it tan give us the chance to |
make a fersh start with His help I
and for His Sake.

nuously around the earth once
every two hours, traveling with-
out motive power of its own.
If necessary, it can be con-

my throat, took my keys and

rope and gagged with news-
papers," Holman reported. They
threatened his life and cut him
on the hand, he said.
The men then went to the wo-
man's section and let out Mrs.
McQuagg. Holman described the
woman as a plain -looking

eye when he worked a ound

There Is such a thing as a

She Is too close a friend If:
You feel you can't ever enter-

She feels free to tell you the
unkind and uncomplimentary
things that someone else says a-
You tell her all of your per-

shortcomings of your husband.
She is always critical of any-
thing you buy if she wasn't along
to help you select It.
She Is'forever offering advice
; She feels perfectly free to drop
in any time
She feels she knows you so well
she can be "perfectly frank" in
everything she says. This is just
an excuse for not bothering to

"The bidding and play of this
hand took about five minutes,"
reports a correspondent, "but
the discussion with my partner
has lasted five days.
"West opened the six of hearts,
and dummy won with the king.
I had twelve tricks In top cards,
and had to decide whether to set
up a club or ruff a heart In.
"If clubs were 5-2, they could
riot be set up. If the hearts were
5-2, It was still possible that the
player with only two hearts
could not over-ruff dummy's ten
"On this reasoning, I cashed
the ace of hearts and led the
eight of trumps to my ace. This
was still another chance; the1
jack of spades might fall on this
"Then I led a heart from my
own hand, and West naturally
stepped up with the Jack of
spades to set the contract. ,
"Was my Une of play correct
.but unlucky, or Incorrect and
Incorrect. I am sorry to say.
The best play is to run four
rounds of trumps at once, dis-
carding low diamonds from the
dummy. This beginning gives the
opponents some light chance to
make a mistake.
South then cashes the top clubs
and ruffs a club, hoping for a
4-3 break. If the clubs are 4-3,
he can set up a long club In dum-
If the clubs fall to break. South
leads a heart to dummy's ace,
hoping that the queen will drop.

South ruffs another low club and
then leads his last trump in the
hope of developing a squeeze.

East, who has the queen of
hearts and two diamonds. If he

discards a diamond, dummy's ace

In the sixth AFGE scored one
more run to take a two-run lead

TE PANAMA AMERICAN Alt INDEPENDENT DAILT NEWSPAPER
C.f.S.5 Powells Battle For Atlantic Twi-Loop 2nd Half Lead
MIAMI.This report on the state of the Brooklyn Bum will
begin with the Information that Walter O'Malley hat recovered
from writer's cramp and Charlie Dretaen'i multiple soul wounds
re tidily healed. Sate for occasional nightmarish apaamt of
clammy horrors, neither it experiencing any aeriona after effects
- of the BT's.. Bobby Thomson's homer.
Ordinarily the position of a mere president of a ball club in
the preseason picture is monumentally unimportant, but Mr.
O'Malley's systematic campaign, to retain the patronage of his
disillusioned clientele after the shambles of last fall when his ball
club lost a pennant it couldn't possibly lose, was of such high
merit as to command at least passing attention.
"I must have got a million letters from indignant fans, all
blasting the tar out of us, and I answered every one of them,"
the comparatively new baseball executive said.
Evidently the gentleman did an excellent salvage job, for
advance sales for the oncoming season are nearlng record-break-
T'I got some letters back and, believe It or not, the writers,
most of whom had been in favor of putting c torch to the park
and throwing Dressen in the Gowanus Canal, said they were real-
ly sorry for us, and besides we hadn't been beaten by a better
team; the Giants were lust lucky stiffs, as, of course, they were."
In the grim and gloomy aftermath It was duly noted that
the Bums had lost a World's Series pot And Dressen no little pres-
tige as a mastermind, but It was overlooked that Mr. O'Malley
had been nicked for $200,000, the difference between owning half
the series and having to pay to see it. To him, then, a bow for
the sporting, good-natured and philosophical way he took the
'OUT OF EVERT EVIL'
Not since Napoleon dropped the decision at Waterloo has a
battle leader been pilloried more than Mr. Dressen as a con-
sequence ot Thomson's blast in the Polo Grounds' stands. Here
again Mr. O'Malley rates a bow. If he had submitted to clamor
and fired the manager It would have been the most popular move
since the Invention of off-the-shoulder gowns. A Club owner with
less Integrity wouldn't have hesitated.
There is nothing reticent about Mr. Dressen and his disposi-
tion to concede the excellence of his talents in superlative phrases
l not universally applauded, a fact which complicates an open-
minded, detached review of the record. There are many who find
It impossible to reconcile a brassy manner with a sound opera-
tion, but once in a while this can be deceptive.
Whether It is deceptive in Mr. Dressen's case is a matter yet
to. be answered. Mr. Dressen gives the Impression he Is indif-
ferent to criticism and serenely sure of himself and his destiny,
yet this could be but a brave pose. Certainly any normal person
In similar circumstances would be hurt, humiliated and chasten-
ed, and would profit by the ordeal.
Diplomacy In manner and discretion in speech are not qua-
lities for which Mr. Dressen Is noted. Just the other day he was
telling the ballplayers and the writers the umpires beat him last
season, a charge which Is not likely to endear him to these gentle-
men In the future. Last summer, well In front, he explained the
Bums were winning because he was a better manager than old
This would have been better left unsaid, or less blatantly
phrased, but even so I thought him correct. At that, the inter-
view would have been forgotten if Mr. Dressen had continued to
breeze along 13 games In front. There is this to be said for the
gentleman: He never falls to give you an answer. To the baseball
writer he must be a delight.
TEAM'S ALL SET BUT
Nothing that happened that dreadful afternoon last fall has
seemingly affected his optimism or cocksure manner. Once again
you find Mm sticking his bruised and mangled neck out, picking
the Bums to win, despite the loss of Don Newcombe. How the
Bums can do It without Newcombe when they failed with him Is
a question that is worth considerably more than the conventional
Well find the pitching somewhere," he assures you.
For the first time in the past 10 years the Bums seem com-
fortably set everywhere else, with Billy Cox, greatest glove man
in baseball, a fixture at third, and Andy Pafko. physically sound,
ready to win serenades from the Sym-phony Band, a higher dis-
tinction In Flatbush than knighthood, even If the ceremonials
are not so majestic.
Clem Lablne, 25-year-old curve bailer, who was 5 and 1 at
the end of the season, stands with high in Mr. Dressen's esteem
...'T think he'll win 18 or 17 anyway "...If so, It will be more
than the young man ever won In his, Ufe including the minors,
and he started in '44.
Mr. Dressen talks hopefully of Ben Wade, 29-year-old right-
hander who was 18-16 with Hollywood last season. He has been
up previously with brief adventures in Chicago and Cincinnati.
A change of pace pitch and newly developed curve are his re-
Mr. Dressen privately doubts that Joe Black, 28-year-old
giant Negro right-hander, can make It..."But if he does my
worries are over. This fellow can pitch morning, noon and night.'
Even in Brooklyn that would be a novelty.

TONIGHT'S GAME (Truriday)
Powells vs C.H.8.
Cristbal High School, first
half winners of the Atlantic Twi-
light League and at present only
a half game behind the second
half leaders, tonight will be pre-
sented with the opportunity of
taking over first place in the
second half race.
The lads from the Gold Coast
High School have one of the most
potent squads that ever played
local high school ball. With the
inter scholastic championship
now safely tucked away for the
second consecutive year, they
can concentrate their full ef-
forts towards copping their first
Twilight League crown.
Johnny Hatgl, Cristbal High's
all-arounder lnfielder pitcher
(and what have you), will be
tossing them up for the first half
champs. Johnny is strictly a con-
trol pitcher. Though his duties
have been limited, he has been
effective. Powells will counter
with George Carty, their leading
moundsman, who was kept out
of action Sunday in preparation
for tonight's game.
Cristbal High has >a pair of
hitters tha thave been terror-
izing the Twi-Loop pitching since
mid way down the first half
when they started their drive for
the crown. Tommy Hughes, slug-
fer, and Talmadge 8alter, one of
he most consistent hitters In
the league, will be in charge of
the offensive department.
On the other hand, George
Cariy will be charged with dou-
ble dutyon the mound against
the Cristbal bats, and at the

For the past three games, Po-
wells have been handicapped by
the absence of their top lnfield-
er, Harry Dockery, who has been
111 for over a week. Dockery has
been the spark-plug of the club,
performing throughout the sea-
son at his short-stop position.
Game time tonight, as usual, 7
p.m. at Mt. Hope Stadium.
PISTOL PAKIN' JUNIOR--Roy Campanella Is held up momen-
tarily from Spring training chores at the Dodgers' Vero Beach, Fia.,

BRECKON TIES ISTHMIAN
.10-06 RECORD, LEADS
BALBOA CLUB TO WIN
Sgt. 1st Class Clayton Breckon,
of the 45th Iron Horse Cavalry,
firing for the Balboa Gun Club,
Sunday became the fourth man1
to fire a score of 193 over the I
DCM course since the Canal Zone I
Shooting Association has been!
keeping records. Breckon looked
for awhile as if he had a new
record In the making, but mirage
and pressure combined to cause
him to drop one shot sitting,
which In addition to the one he
dropped standing kept him In
the 193 class.
The first two shooters to reach
this record, Bob Harris of the
Marines, and Gil Kemm, Air
Force Master Sergeant, are long
gone from these snores. The lone
civilian record holder, Bill Jaf-
fray, Is still very much here, and
In fact was running the range
while Breckon tied the record.
In fact, seeing his rival, Breck-
on, tie his record, must have
blown Jaffray's cork, because he
fot up on the range, and care-
ully placed his first shot in the
middle of some one else's target,
thus making "Knock off Jaffray
Day'' official and unanimous. At
any rate, he had a good excuse
for not tying the record.
In second place with a score of
189 was Earl F. Mitchell ot the
Albrook-Curundu team. Mitch
started slow, but fired a "possi-
ble" rapid. Third and fourth were
Col. Henry Ross and 8. Todhunt-
er Tocid, both firing 188, with the
colonel taking the nod on a high-
er rapid fire score. Todd has fir-
ed so many 18B's lately that he
seems to be in a 188 rut, what-
ever that Is. Maybe he can save
ammunition and stay home, If he
can convince the officials that
that's all he can shoot. Al Joyce's
188 put him In fifth place, his
"possible" rapid bumping three
other gentlemen with the same
score out of the money.
Although Breckon's record ty-
ing job put the emphasis on the
individual performance, this was
actually a team match. With
three shooters in the first five,
the Balboa Gun Club team put
together the highest four-man
score ever fired here, if memory
serves the writer correctly. Their
score of 752 received a nice boost
from Breckon's 193, but even
then represented an average of
Albrook-Curundu showed up
with a couple of substitutes, and
ars offered by
Phone 1000 Colon
while not conceded much chance,
surprised everyone by taking sec-
ond, in spite of Mr. Jaffrayi Im-
pressive performance on the
wrong target. Albrook-Curundu's
740 was well ahead of Balboa No.
2 team's 734 score In third place,
but the latter Just squeaked by
the Marines, who compiled 733
to breath dankly down their
An epidemic of crossfire on the
wrong targets mangled quite a
few scores to look before they
yank, I mean squeeze, the trig-
ger the next time.
Miss Barbara Mlllard, the lone
gal shooter who-tackles the big
rifle, also had her disappoint-
ments. First returns on her score
showed her with a score o 172,
which would have made her the
first woman In recent local his-
tory to qualify as an "Expert"
with the Dig gun.
However, the official scorers
(heartless characters, with an
adding machine In place of the
missing organ) hacked away at
the score until they knocked It
down to 170. Barbara Is. there-
fore, officially a "Sharpshooter,"
but she Is a determined girl, and
Uncle Sugar Able can start pol-
ishing up one, each, sterling sil-
ver medal, because all the local
marksmen are betting she makes
it the next time out.

Cristbal High Pins
Balboa Relay Hopes
On Sprint Teams
Although It is a bit too early
to definitely come up with his
various relay combinations.
Coach Paul Moser of Cristobal
High feels that his sprint teams
will be his best. Moser has been
working his Tiger tracksters
hard so that they will be in the
best possible condition for the
Balboa Relays on April 18.
This is the third running of
the Relays, and the Tigers have
always been well represented In
the big meet. In addition to his
Srlnt teams, it is possible that
oser will be able to come up
with a potent medley team, an-
chored by his see distance run-
ner, Anselmo Arlas.
Arlas might do double duty by
running the open mile also, and
It is more than likely that George
Bennett will enter the 100 In ad-
dition to his relay chores.
In addition to these boys, Cris-
tobal has strong personnel in the
weights, with Bill Robinson be-
ing the big gun of the discus cir-
cle, aided by such veterans as
Roy Wilson and Arnold Manning.
Manning, of course, will be re-
called by most Isthmian track
and field fans, as the top pole
vaulter from the CHS campus.
In the shot put the Tigers will
have the likes of Bob Bailey and
Bob Blakely. Both these boys are
seasoned performers in local
track and field, and will be
counted on heavily to bring
Joints Into the scoring column
or their Alma Meter.
Don McLaughlin, quarter mile,

these boys must be considered
threats to annex individual ti-
tles. It also follows that if they
can take enough individua' and
relays places, they can win the
This will be the first time in
three years of the Relays that a
team champion will b declared,

ner the honors.

OUT OF DOORS with
Spoon Lure Began As A Teaspoon
By AL MCCIAN
We sat up through the wee
hours this morning listening to
a fellow talk about a new lure
he's putting on the market.
It's a spoon whose shape oro-
ides a high-lift hydrafoll, Allow-
ing for maximum motto

cause of its calculated instab-
ility under induced spin, it
breaks rotation from one direc-

teaspoon. Fish grab a spoon un-
der the impression that they are
grabbing a smaller fish who*
suffering from a hangoer or a
broken landing gear as he wob-
bles under the cannibal's nose.
Getting Just the right wob-
ble is not simple these days
because fish and fishermen de-
mand more realism in their
baits Modern lure makers
spend months ealculstlng the
relation of weight to mass in
thousands of eurvatures before
marketing a finished prodduet.
Spoons are the oldest fishing
lures In the world. The prob-
able date of their origin Is shout
3000 B.C. The ancient Romans
used polished clam shells equip-
ped with various types of me-
tal and stone hooks, later mint
crudely carved metal dlse.
The progress of spoon design
never was elong well-deflnea

an American angler really did
something to qualify for the
title of "spoon inventor."
The student was one Julio T.
Buel, a man of unlimited and
xtravagant imagination. Julio
selected pure silver for his ar-
tificial!, as he reasoned that
this was the nearest to the co-
lor of a fish's belly. But this la

Air Force Said
WASHINGTON, March 30 (UP)
House investigators charged in
a scorching report that the Air
Force grabbed more funds than
It needs or can use during the
"ripe opportunity" of the Ko-
rean emergency. .
As a result, the group said,
the Air Force has been making
a "mad rush" to spend money
and has been guilty of "shame-
ful waste" in its $5,780,000,000
The charges were made In a
subcommittee report adopted by
the full House Expenditures
It was made public as the
Senate Preparedness Subcom-
mittee heard testimony that the
United States is "just throwing
money away" on Air Force bases
In North Africa.
Both House and Senate groups
have been investigating Air Force
The House investigators, hav-
ing completed their Inquiry, are
cooperating with the Senate sub-
committee in the North African
The House committee used An-
drews Air Force base in nearby
Maryland as an example of the
"utterly ridiculous" way the Air
Force has spent part of Its tund.
Congress had granted $80,000
for WAF barracks at Andrews,
the report said, but the Air Force
had no plans drawn up. So it
used a set of Alaskan barracks
Pi808 .._ L .fc.
The difference was that tne
Alaskan plans called for 40
rooms instead of the 81 need-
ed and cost $170,000 instead of
In addition, the Air Force paid
a $7,000 premium to get the
building in 60 days instead of 90
Thirteen WAF8 were housed in
the 40-room barracks at a cost
of $13 a day each, the commit-
tee said. It said this was "more
than double what It would have
cost to put them up at the best
hotel In Washington on a two to
a room basis."
About $22,000 of the extra cost
was traced to the Air Force's fail-
ure to inspect the barracks site
"which was almost a swamp"
The committee accused the
Air Force of a "breach of faith"
with Congress and said the
whole thing was 'a' comdey of
errors although a taxpayer
might find it difficult to see

LONDON, March 20 (UP).
Minister of State for Foreign
Affairs Selwyn Lloyd told the
House of Commons today that
Britain has already protested
the attack on a Protestant
church In Seville, Spain and will
consider further representations
when more details of the Incid-
ent are available.

Lloyd replied: "Her Majesty's
ambassador at Madrid has re-
ported this most regrettable act
of hooliganism and has deliver-
ed a note to the Spanish gov-
ernment reserving the right to
claim compensation for damage
to British property.
"As soon as fuller details and
the exact assessment of the
damages are available, I will
consider what form our repre-
sentations to the Spanish gov-
ernment should take."
The Ulster member said the
attack was the culmination of
"a whole series of attacks" on
Protestant churches, and waved
a list of nine. He said the last
was on a Protestant chapel,
blown up by a bomb.
Laborite Anthony Greenwood
asked: "Will he (Lloyd) bear
in mind that previous attacks

ca, March 20 (UP).The South
African opposition today de-
manded the resignation of Pre-
mier Dr. D. r. Malan, as a re-
sult of his critical reverse in a
showdown before the Bupreme

party of ex-Premier Smuts, said,

mediately demand the resigna-
tion of the government, as I
now demand In their name."
The Malan faetion suffered a
seaback early today when the
nation's highest court upheld

law to remove colored voters
from the common voters' roll,
and thus keep them from taking
part in parliamentary elections.
