dent Eisenhower's new proposals
to exchange atomic and hydrogen
bomb information with North At
lantic Treaty allies and other
friendly countries is the result ot
a gradual shift in policy thar's
been on since 1945.
At that time the U.S. has a
monopoly on how to make atom
ic bombs. The aim was to keep
this a tight secret.
The original 1946 McMahon At
omic Energy Act put a flat ban
against exchange of this informa
tion with other countries. The pen
alty for violation was $20,000 fme
and 20 years in prison.
.But in 1949 Russia exploded its
first A-bomb. And in A U e u s t.
1953 only io months behind the
U.S. Russia exploded its first hy
drogen bomb. Since that showed
the Russians already Knew as
much as American scientists, and
more than its allies it changed

Many people come to the Zone carrying with them the same nar narrow

They were looking for a new frontier but not looking far enough.
They carried their troubles with them and alienated others because

"Apparently the leaders who
were supposed to be removed have
been on the payroll right up to
last Saturday," Meany disclosed.
"They weren't taking the money
directly. They raised the pay of
the organizers, who then kicked
back a portion of the increase by
sending it to a special post office
box address. Apparently there is
outright thievery. Every day we
turn up incredible evidence to
show that the business of the
top people in that office is to
steal the union's money, pure and
simple day in and day out."
There is -no doubt that if the
textile union doesn't clean up, it,
too, will be fought and finally
merged with the big and honest
lextile Wokers of America. As
policy is being made here, it is
apparent that labor s Natl, lead

oust the tough crowd. They want
to wreneh the members and the
territories from them as well.
Money for this clean up drive
can come out of the increased
dues, just upped a penny a

be borrowed from other unions

Sex Offender Found
With Girl Is Clue
In Ridolph Mystery
ROCKFORD. HI., Dec. 12 (UP)
Authorities today sought to link
a convicted sex offender accused
of molesting a nine-year-old girl
with the mysterious disappearance
of Maria Ridulph.
FBI agents and police were led
to the ex-convict's hideaway, an
empty stone building on an aban
doned military reservation 14 miles
south of here by the little girl
found sleeping in a car with Don
ald Arbuckle, 34.
A preliminary 1 n v e stigation
showed nothing to identify Arbuc
kle with the Ridulph case, agents
said, but they was stocked with
photographs of nude children, some
in oblcene poses.
Police said the arrest of Arbuc
kle was the first possible break in
the case of the missing seven-year-old
Ridulph girl. Maria dis disappeared

North's one no-trump opemng
was standard in spite of his five
card club suit. South's two dia
mond response was the Jacoby
transfer and showed a heart suit of
at least five cards.
North's rebid to two hearts was
automatic and South bid three
clubs. In the JTB system the bid
of a second suit by responder is a
force to game and naturally
enough it shows a pretty good
hand and a two-suiter of sorts.
Ivan Erdos of Los Angeles who
sat North looked over his hand
carefully. He only held IS high
card points but they were almost
all aces and kings. Also he had
just the right cards for a club
Ivan also knew just how to get
to the slam if there was one. He
bid four no-trump. In the JTB this
bid is Blackwood except that the
responder is allowed to pass if he
feels that a slam is impossible.
In this instance South knew that
a slam was possible. He only held
13 high card points but he had good
distribution and two aces and a
king. South was only too pleased
to show both his aces by a five
Ivan closed the bidding with six
clubs. Even though he knew his
side held all the aces he did not
want to be in seven. Actually seven
would not have been too bad a
contract although, on account of
the bad heart break, it would not
have made. As for six it was a
wrap-up. With trumps breaking
two-two and no singleton any place
Ivan could have made it on almost
any line of play.
