Atom Fission For Peaceful UsePern
General Porter
Says Army Here
Can Hold Canal
Confidence in the ability of troops in the Canal Zone
at their present strength to defend the Panama
Canal was expressed this week by Maj. Gen. Ray E. Porter,
commander of the U.S. Army Caribbean.
"We'd make it tough for them," Gen. Porter told
newsmen last Tuesday at his field headquarters in the Pa-
cora-Chepo area where he was chief observer of the large-
scale maneuvers, and added the comment that he is "not
unhappy about the strength of his command."__________
Explaining that the current
maneuvers are based on the pos-
sibility of hit-and-run raids. Gen
Porter expressed his belief that
it would be as possible for an en-
emy to "organize and throw in a
hit-and-run raid as It would be
to make an air attack.
"Ships sailing the seas are not
being questioned or molested,' he
added. .
Should any such real attack be
made toward the Canal, Gen.
Porter said, troops could be mov-
ing out to contact the Invaders
in 30 minutes, day or night.
Not only the combat troops but
the local service forces know how
to fight, he explained. The latter
are not as mobile as the combat
troops but they could take over
al! deferuiive action while the
combat troops engaged the ene-
The Army Is In such better po-
sition In Panam than most peo-
ple think, the commander o the
focal Armv troops continued. He
added that one of the purposes
of the review which was given
recentlv for Panama's President
Arnulfo Arias at Fort Kobbe was
to show the diplomatic corps that
there still are forces in the Pan-
ama area.
In addition to the Army's func-
tion of protection against any
enemy ground attack, he explain-
ed, it must also be alert to pre-
vent sabotage. He told newsmen
that surveillance Is being exer-
cised at vital local spots, both
against external and internal at-
tempts, and added. "It would be
pretty hard for saboteurs to get
at our dams, etc."
A firm believer In the value of
maneuver training. Gen. Porter
explained that such static de-
fense missions as anti-aircraft

WICHITA. Kansas, Mar. 24
(UP)March winds raced across
i the great plains from Nebraska
to Texas today whipping up
clouds of dust reminiscent of the
dust bowl conditions in the
1930's, and threatening 4,000,000
acres of wheatland with erosion.
Dust began rolling over parts
of Nebraska, Kansas. Oklahoma,

Soil conservationists blamed
the winter-long drought in the
plains states for the dust and
Louis Merril, regional director
of the Soil Conservation Service
at Fort Worth, said tremendous
areas in West Texas, Kansas and
Oklahoma have been left al-
most barren. Other conserva-
tionists said many wheat fields,
particularly in Oklahoma and
Texas, are severely damaged by
the weather.
Huge clouds of dust cut vis-
ibility-m. parts of Texas, Okla-

three miles.
The heaviest covers of dust
were reported at Hobart, Okla-
homa, and Hereford, Texas. Vis-
ibility at these two towns was

noon. The sun appeared as a
light colored spot.

United States officials express-
ed skepticism today that Argen-
tina has produced an atomic ex-
plosion, despite the announce-
ment from President Peron thtt
a nuclear reaction had been pro-
duced there on Feb. 16.
Experts here explained that one
possible atomic energy reaction
is the ahermonuclear process, in
which nuclear particles are "su.i -
ed" together instead of splitting.
This is the so-called "hydrogen
bomb" reaction.
But the thermonuclear pro-
cess by which the tars manu-
facture energy requires tem-
peratures in millions of degrees
to make the nuclei active.
So far, scientists know of only
one way in which such tempera-
tures can be achieved and that, is
by setting of an atomic bomb. So
even thermonuclear reactions
utilizing light elements like hy-
drogen would in the last analy-
sis depend on uranium, which tne
Argentine announcement savs
was not used.
Officials said that if Argentina
had been able to produce atom.c
energy without uranium, than
something new and sensational
had been accomplished.

BUENOS AIRES, Mar. 24 (UP) Argentim
Dictator Juan Peron said today that Argentina')
atomic discoveries will be employed for peaceful
purposes, not war.
Earlier it was announced Argentina had the
means for making an A-bomb, and perhaps even
an H-bomb.
Peron told newsmen Argentina's atomic fis-
sion is achieved at a fraction of the cost of fission
in the "mile long" A-bomb plants of the United

Hope Nearing End
For Globemaster
SHANNON, Ireland, Mar. 24
(UP). Hope late today had
almost been abandoned for the
53 persons aboard the U.S. Air
Forces giant Globemaster which
disappeared Friday in a North
Atlantic storm.
A search of more than 40
hours failed to uncover any
trace of survivors of the tra-
gedy. Several life rafts were
seen by those aboard searching
planes but none of them bore
any of the passengers or crew

Pre-Combat Maneuvers Near Chepo
Prepare Men for Hit-And-Run Raid
COL. R. H. DOUGLAS, Chief Umpire of the U. S. Army Caribbean's field exercise "Operation
Chepo," held this week in the Republic of Panama, opens the critique which foUowed the
maneuver's completion. At this meeting, officers ot the "Aggressor Force," presumed to have
landed on the Isthmus of Panama, and of the "I'.S. Forces," whose mission was "Aggressor's"
destruction, met to examine the 2,604-man war game in detail, compare notes, and profit from
experience. (U.S. Army Photo)
Because no miracle occurs be-
tween the last day of training
and the first day of battle,"
troops from the U.8. Army Ca-
ribbean are maneuvering near
They are maneuvering under
the most realistic conditions
which can be provided, armed
omy with the equipment on
hand. The problem they have
been working on this- past week
is one based on the ever-to-be-
guarded-against possibility that
some day an enemy might try
a hit-and-run raid on the Ca-
They have not used air power,
because there is no air power
here. They have fought with the
weapons they have, and the
weapons are new and shiny.
They have used blank ammuni-
tion whenever possible to simu-
late the racket of battle. Their
"casualties" and there have
been a few real ones, like the
soldiers whose head was severely
bumped last Tuesday by a
swinging gun barrel have
been given the same treatment
they would be in actual com-
This year's problem, which
has kept 2,060 men engaged
for the past two weeks in pre-
combat training and actual
maneuvers, is based on the
assumption that on Mar. 14
the Aggressor Allies initiated
a war against the United
States, without formal decla-
ration. Another Pearl Harbor,
in effect.
For the uninitiated, like the
correspondente who spent a day
in the maneuver area this week,
these Aggressors need exolaln-
ing. They are a very real, but
quire fictitious, unit.
This Aggressor force is a high-
ly trained maneuver force, made
up of U. S. forces and assumed
to be continually at war with
the United States. It makes
constant, fictitious attacks
against the United States. Its
operations are tactically sound
but sometimes based on foreign
It is uniformed in a distinctive
green garb, with a bright red
field cap. Its men are equipped
with a special polyglot identifi-
cation card, its Insignia Is a
triangle and its non-com and
officer markings are different
from those of regular U. S.
Lt. Col. L. J. Wilcox, for in-
stance, commanding the Aggres-
sor force which, for purposes of
the maneuver were assumed to
have landed on the Panama
coast last week, became Col
Walter Eberhardt on his Aggres-
sor card. His training and pro-
motions were listed; his deco-
rations Included the "Star of
Europe." He sported three gold
leaves on each shoulder, instead
of his U. S. single silver leaf,
and his captains wore three gold
bars on their shoulder straps.
The landing near Capitana
was entirely fictional for the
present maneuvers. It was as-
sumed that the Aggressors
had come ashore during the
night from two LST-type ves-
sels. Their equipment was only
that which lurh a force might
have brought and included
one liaison plane.
Their purpose was to reach
the Canal for a blitz raid, at
best. At least, if Intercepted
they were to attempt to hold a
beachhead for expected reinfor-
cements. It was also assumed
that the local earrlson had been

Men Of 187th
TOKYO, Mar. 24 (UP)In Ko-
rea 15.000 to 20.000 North Koreans
trapped by a Jump by 3,000 para-
troopers of the 187th Airborne
Regiment are believed to have
slipped north through or around
the paratroopers, according to an
flth Army spokesman.
However several hundred Reds
were killed and about 100 cap-
tured In the operation.
The Reds appear to be digging
in for another rearguard stand
on the north bank of the curv-
ing Imjln River. Just north of
Munsan and within a short dis-
tance of the 38th parallel.
Elements of the Chinese 50th
Army took over from the North
Koreans in these hills. They
fought fiercely against United
8tates. Belgian and Puerto Rican
troops fighting to clear one of
the two main highways from Se-
oul to Pyongyang, the North Ko-
rean capital.
Their objective seemed to be
to delay the United States pur-
suit as long as possible to enable
other Chinese forces farther
north to get set for any Allied
crossing of the 38th parallel.
MacArthur has authorized
such a crossing if and when the
security of the 8th Army makes
lt tactically advisable.

SUNDAY, MARCH ft, 195]
Atlantic Twi Loop Title Series Opens Tomorrow,
Top Flight Duos Seek Crack At Champs
In Best Ball Tourney At Summit Club

I MIAMI BEACH.Making his bow as a bin league manager
th year. Martin Whiteford Marion would be able to contemplate
the pennant campaign with higher hopes, if he could be sure
that Mr. Shortstop would be available for 100 ball games, more
But since Mr. Shortstop happens to be Mr. Marion himself
afld there Is substantial doubt that he will see action other than
at spaced Intervals, the newly minted manager starts out with
a disturbing problem. Unfortunately It Is not the only one con-
fronting the graceful, sure-handed toothpick who made defen-
sive play an exact science.
As was Indicated In these dispatches a year ago at this time,
ate has caught up with the St. Louis Cardinals. If thev couldn't
dc it a year ago when they dropped out of the first division for
the first time since "38 how can they, a year older, be expegted
to present a more formidable front today?
Most of their dependables are In the mid-30s. Consider the
pitchers alone. Breechen Is 36. So is Brazle. Lanler is 35. Ditto
Wtyks. And Enos Slaughter, for years the symbol of the club's
flaming spirit, is 35. Bv August last year he was dragging his
taU. as they say in dugot argot. That's when It tells on the old
geezers. In the hot. closing months
There was a time when the Cardinals wee rich In raw,
young material. It was a Branch Rickey boast that no star grew
old on his ball club. Once a star began to show the first faint
sign of retrogression he was traded or peddled. There was al-
ways some fuzz-cheeked apple knocker up from the brambles
ready to take over.

Wanted: A First Baseman
It hasn't been that way* now for some time. Largely because
Rickey had no copyright on the farm system. The competition
grew sharper and men like Yawkev and Carpenter, who weren't
afraid to spend a buck, entered the open market. Rickey got
the jump. Later he pioneered In the Negro field to keep abreast.
Now he runs with the mob. I doubt that he'll ever have an-
other championship team.
The Cardinals brought up the usual quota of new faces this
spring and from a distance, suited In the familiar cream-white
and red flannels, they look like ball players. But even now,
three weeks of training over, there Is none to whom you can
point and say with conviction: "This fellow can make it."
Most of the talk has been of a tall, angular countrified left-
hunded pitcher who answer to the beguiling caption of Vinegar
Bend Mlzell and Is In movement and manner, delightfully remi-
niscent of Dlzzv Dean, but whether he was enough native talent
to offset obvious shortcomings in know-how and finesse remains
to be seen.
An elbower more likely to be of help Is Tom Poholsky who
comes from Rochester with Impressive credentials. Including the
league's low-earned-run average of 2.17. Throws right. Don
Richmond might do it at third. Led the International League
hitters with .333. Bill Sarnl. catcher who was .280 with Colum-
bus, is expected to tick in a secondary capacity.
But the Cardinals are still without a first baseman and a
long-ball rliht-handed hitter, two deficiences which plagued Ed-
die Dver. the departed mastermind, ft year ago. There are five
prospects In camp. And the word Is used advisedly. Nippy Jones
Is long-ranee hope., He was out all last vear following a spinal
operation. The odds are aeainst him. He was once big league.

The Old Spirit Dies Out
Actually, second Is the only infield position that Is nailed
down. There are few better than Red Schoendlst, The Cardinals
will be a'l right back of the plate If Joe Garagiola has recover-
rd from the shoulder split he suffered In a collision with Jackie
"oblnson. The frlery Slaughter will go as far as he can in right
d of course, there's The Man In center.
Por three years now Stan Muslal has been the best ballplay-
u. In the big leagues. For the first time he's getting a big
leaguer's salary. It took some doing but Muslal finally cracked
trie economic absurdity that lust because a star plays In St.
Louis he shouldn't expect a star's pay.
*-'The summation as to personnel paints a discouraging pic-
ture for Marlon's debut and that ain't all. The Cardinals' tra-
ditional spirit Is beginning to fade. This is a quality not easy
to sustain In frustration. It Is to be doubted, too. that the play-
ers have any love for Fred Saigh. the strident anti-Chandler
owner who thev don't know, can't understand and probably re-
gard with misgivings.

Comes Mar. 31 at Summit Hills
Golf Club and Johnny MacMur-
ray and Jaime de la Guardia will
be defending their laurels as win-
ner Of the 1950 National Distill-
ers Best Ball Championship.
Johnny and Jaime will be at-
tempting to establish a new pre-
cedent, for no team has repeated
Its victory in this very tough com-
fietltlon. Without a doubt these
wo tyros of the links will rule
odds-on favorites when the 1951
championship opens at Summit.
However, a quick glance at the
list of early entries reveals any
number of good solid "road
blocks" across the path of the
defending champions.
At the moment a solid bet for
second choice would be the team
of Dr. Hefb Mitten and Matt
Shannon. Both are veterans of
many years tournament play, and
both have attained notable firsts.
Among other victories, Dr. Mitten
Is a former Panam Open champ,
and Matt Shannon teamed with
Dickie Arias to win the first Na-
tional Distillers Best Ball Cham-
pionship In 1947.
Another team featuring a for-
mer Winner of the Best Ball is
that of R. W. "Tommy" Thomp-
son and Jim Rlley. Thompson
paired off with Lt. Clement Mal-
oney In 1948 to cop the bunting
from Jack Hutchings and That-

Pres Trim, Jr., Charley MacMur-
ray-Blll 8chmltt, Doc Gerrans-
Bob Spain, and Maury Muller-

are many other teams entered
that can't be counted out. Albert

Eartner "Durable" Eddie Dur-
am, and Sylvester Bubb and
Jack Lally are very capable of
surnrlslng everyone.
There Is unusual Interest being
exhibited In the National Distill-
ers Best Ball this vear. That Is as
lt should be considering the ad-
ditional flight featuring handi-
cap allowances. A couple of In-
teresting points In particular are
the entries of a team of wpmen
and a team of Junior golfers. Miss
Virginia Keenan, Women's Isth-
mian Amateur Champion, has
entered with her partner, Mrs.
Marian Taylor, medalist In the
last Women's Amateur. The ladles
will be conceded absolutely no
quarter. In other words, their par
and their tee-off positions will
be the same as the other en-
trants. This Is the first year that
any of the ladies have exercised
their prerogative of entering one
of the finest tournaments open
to Isthmian amateurs. They are
heartily welcomed!!! The other
surprise team Is that of the two
junior phenoms from Summit
Hills. Jackie Hammond and San-
dy Hlnkle. Both are fourteen-
year-olds who can more than
hold their own on any golf
course. As a matter of fact, Jackie
Hammond played In the Inter-
Club with Summit against Fort
It appears at this writing that
this will be the biggest and best

round Mar. 31 or April 1. It's only
an elghteen-hole qualification

Powells To
Face Gatun
At Mt. Hope
CRISTOBAL The fifteenth
consecutive season of the Atlan-
tic Twilight League draws to a
close with the playoff series be-
tween Gatun, winners of the first
half, and Powell's, who copped
the second half, at Mount Hope
Monday night at 7:30.
The regulation twilight seven-
Inning game will be played.
The second game will be played
Tuesday night at the same time
and a third game, If necessary,
will be played on a date decided
by officials.
As the first game is the big one'
In any short series both teams
will put out their strongest line-
ups. Gatun won the- first half,
winning six while only dropping
three but they had to dispose of
a strong Margarita team who fi-
nished a close second. Powell's,
after having a poor first half,
winning three games and losing
six, came back and played Invin-
cible ball In the second half, win-
ning seven games and only losing
one to the high school. Gatun
won five while losing four In the
second half.
Both teams will present a pow-
erful attack, Gatun finishing the
season with a .264 batting aver-
age while Powell's was right be-
hind with a .262 mark. Gatun
will have two batters, Egolf and
Hooper, who batted over .400 and
will be backed up by Swerlngen,
Welch, Oibsorj||nd Grace, all who
clubbed over tire .300 mark. While
this should scare any rival, such
is not the case with Powell's. They
also have a lineup packed with
power. Collins, who won the bat-
ting title with an astounding .547,
will be in center field, ana he Will
have help from Carty and San-
ders who clubbed .428. Dorn Tho-
mas, Harry Dockery and Kewpie
Highley all were over the .300
mark. So with such an array of
power hitters on both teams lt
looks like a tough series on the
pitchers and outfielders of both
Gatun and Powell's.
The game starts promptly at
7:30 p.m. with probable batteries
being Egolf and Swerlngen for
Gatun with Bill Hughes and Tho-
mas doing the battery work for

In 1945, Dan Topping and Del
Webb made Albert Benjamin
Chandler, Kentucky Senator, the |
successor to Judge Landls, who
died in office in November, 1944.
Now Topping and Webb are
conducting a campaign for the
election of Jim Farley, the old
Haverstraw, N. Y., first baseman,
once a president-maker.
Farley, himself Is making no'

He Is happy in his lucrative post

In 1945, Farley would not per-
mit the use of his name as be-

wanted to be boss of baseball.
In the electioa at Cleveland,
the erstwhile Postmaster General
dropped out after the first ballot,
with National League prexy Ford
Friok, leaving only Bob Hanne-
gan to contest with Chandler.
Then came a unanimous vote
for the senator from Kentucky.
Topping recently asked Farley
if he would consider the post.
The answer was that if the Job
were open, Farley would allow
his name to be considered. He in-
sisted, however, that he would
not become involved In any situa-
tion with Chandler.
Many names have been an-

There's little reason, really, for
concern. It has long since been
established that baseball is here
to stay, and there always will be
enough players to man the dug-
The game Is going to college,
and it would pay the majors to
let the young men finish.
Why not draft them like the
football players, instead of this
promiscuous raiding of the
ranks? The latter makes coaches
and schools mad, and that Isn't
good business for baseball In the
long haul. Why, the hungry own-
ers even rescinded the high
school rule. The game cries for
another authority like Judge
Chuck Ward, who picked up
Robin Roberts, put the okeh on
Tom Casagrande, and the Phillies
paid the Fordham Junior $40,000
for his name.
Such an authority as Jack Cof-
fey says Casagrande could make
tust as much progress as a first
aseman in school the next two

The 'chaser usually Is sturdier
than the runner. A trainer can't
start working on him until he is
full grown. He has to be brought
along easily and slowly.

Not content with running
what is perhaps the moat uni-
que hostelry in Central Ameri-
ca, Doa Ver Elliot Is now
fostering the production of dis-
tinctive Boquete bateas.
"Hostelry" may not be the
correct term for Hotel Pana-
monte which Mrs. Elliot owns
and operates in picturesque Bo-
quete. The dictionary says the
term is archaic. Certainly Pan-
amonte's running hot water 24
hours a day, the modern tile
bathrooms, the super Inner-
spring mattresses and the salu-
brious food are not archaic.
Yet the fanamonte li an
"Inn" in the continental sense.
Everyone who has ever been
there and eaten the delicious
food, all planned by Doa Ve-
ra, seen the Interior decorating,
all done by Doa Vera, and the
old art treasures and the mod-
ern "man-sized" 8wedlsh fur-
niture assembled by Doa Vera,

This story Is not about Doa
Vera, the Inn-keeper, but about
Doa Vera, the artist. A painter,
herself, she has'nt the time to
work at It. Instead she has en-
Joyed a vicarious pleasure In
enabling a young Panamanian
lad to mould his natural ta-
lents into a new line batea
Nearly everyone who has been
to the Interior of Panama has
purshased a batea. Many buy the
plain, hand carved bateas,
sandpaper them and apply var-
nish or a plastic coating.
Doa Vera's bateas are all
hand-painted. Even this Is not
new. But most contemporary
painters of bateas follow the
{eometrlcal designs of ancient
ndian pottery.
This, says Mrs. Elliot, Is al-
right for those who want It, but

Over 450 bateas have been
produced so far and no two are

saucer-shape to enormous serv-
ing platters. Some are oval,
some around, and a few square.
One thing they have In com-
mon. All are signed! The mark-

on the bottom of each batea.

Recently the bateas were
placed on sale at the Hotel El

them had been displayed and

that time Mrs. Elliot was un-
willing to sell any.

Chicago Gang Leader Draws
Contempt Fine From Senate
Arthur Koestler has produced
another Incisive novel in The Age
of Longing (Macmlllani. Taking
as his theme the growing threat
of Communism ln western Euro-
pe. Koestler uses as his chief
character a young Russian of-
ficial brought up ln the de-
humanizing school of the party.
Assigned to Paris to prepare
for the forthcoming; invasion,
Fedya Nlkltln comes into contact
with the "decadent" culture of
the West, symbolized by Hydle,
and American girl educated ln a
European convent. Hydle Is at-
tracted to Fedya because of his
self-confidence and belief ln the
destiny of the "people's'1 move-
ment whereas Hydle has lost her
anchoring religious faith. Their
love affair progresses to crush-
ing disillusionment for Hydle in
the atmosphere of a doomed city
where everybody seems to be tak-
ing a last fling at freedom. The
time is the middle 1950'slust a
step ahead. Koestler remarks.

Carroll and his attorney pro-
tested vigorously about the pres-
ence of the TV cameras and the
committee directed that he be
given the same treatment afrow-
ed Frank Costello In New York-
only the bookmaker's hands ap-
peared on the screen.
Gueik appeared to take TV ln
stride, but did express some an-
noyance with photographers

Guzik, who had been sought
by the committee for several
months, surrendered to the Sen-
ate sergeant-at-arms early yes-
terday and was led to the wit-
ness chair by a Capitol police
sergeant. .
He answered one question, giv-
ing his correct name, and men
"I am going to refuse to an-
swer any questions whatever on
grounds of lncrlmlnatlon. I am
going to stand on my constitu-
tional rights."
Acting Committee Chairman
Herbert R. O'Connor, D. Md.
warned him that he could not
make a "constitutional objec-
tion" on general grounds. O'Con-
nor told him he would have to
refuse to answer each specific
question as It was asked.
Carroll complained to the com-
mittee that TV cameras "fr ali-
ened" him and left him all but
"speechless." But he agreed to
talk as long as the cameras did-
n't show his face.
As for his business. Carroll
said, "I think gambling Is a bio-
logical necessity. It's the quality
that gives substance to their (the
nubile') daydreams."

ada," he said.
Carroll said that at one time
he considered making a court
test of the Issue, "but then the
suggestion came to my mind,
'why find out'wait until some
action Is taken against you."
His testimony prompted the
committee to ask him about his
connections, If any. with St. Louis
municipal officials. He testified
that he had met East St. Louis
Police Commissioner John Eng-
lish "about seven times ln my
life" but never gave him a poli-
tical contribution.
When Committee Counsel John
Burling demanded to know whe-
ther English ever had done any-
thing to Interfere with Carroll's
operations, the witness replied:
"No." Carroll gave the same an-
swer when asked If the East St.
Louis sheriff ever Interfered.
Carroll Insisted, as he did a
year ago before a Senate Com-
merce Subcommittee, that legis-
lation to clamp down on racing
wire services would not put book-
makers out of business.
He said they would continue to
get the Information they need
from newspapers and racing pub-
lications. If the wire services were
cut off, he said, there would be
"thousands of publications" with
an edition after each race to give
bookmakers the up-to-minute
information they need.
Kefauver countered that oper-
ations were curtailed greatly at
"Mr. Mooney's place" ln East St.

wire service was curtailed. The

Greek Independence Marked
Democratic Turn In Europe
Today, as the Christian World
rejoices the Holy Easter, the
Greeks./ all around the earth,
celebrate the resurrection of
their nation. The 25th of March
Is Greece's Independence Day.
To take note of the 130th an-
niversary of Oreek Independence
Is not merely a gesture toward
a distant friendly country. It Is
both inspiring and Instructive
to this generation to remember,
from time to time, in these
perilous days for the democratic
nations, the sacrifices and the
struggles with which freedom
was won and maintained for

slaves, lost Its own freedom to
the Ottoman Turks In the 15th
Century A. D.
For nearly four centuries,
generation after generation of
Greeks were revolting to throw
off the heavy yoke, only to be
drowned In their own blood. But
the Greeks were never meant
for slaves. The 23th of March
1821 a handfull of Greeks vowed
In the Monastery of Laora to
liberate their country or die.
For eight continuous years,
until 1820. it was a fight be-
tween an unarmed David a-
ealnst a fully equipped Goliath.
It took a series of miracles to
beat off the Sultan's huge ar-
mies and armadas, whose Em-
Dire extended at that time from
the Danube to Arabia and from
Persia to Algiers.
The heroic Greek struggle, es-
pecially the superbdefense of
Mesolonggi, whose heroism was
beyond comparison with any-
thing known until then in Euio-
pean history, moved the public
opinion in Europe so deeply that
the hostile to the Greek cause

Mr. Law. British Under-Secrs-
tary of the Foreign Office writes:
"The way to which Greece
stood up to the might of the Ital-
ian and German Invasion was
not only a glorious example. It
was one of the most decisive bat-
tles of the war, and, as we can
now believe, one of the decisive
battles of the world.
"We know that the stand made
by Greece destroyed one of th
Axis associates as a military pow-
er and postponed the German In -
vaslon of Russia for at least
seven weeks. What would not
have given Hitler to have those
49 days back again?
"The emphatic Greek "no" was
the beginning of a train of event
of supreme importance, with far-
reaching consequences affecting
the greatest powers In Europe...

Alger Hiss. 48. who once advised

on foreign affairs, went to Jail
for lying handcuffed to a com-

Hiss, protesting his Innocence

trials, did not accompany Hiss to
court for the third and final
courtroom scene.
From the courtf com of Federal
Judge Henry W. Ooddard. Hiss
was taken by Chief Deputy Mar-
shal Tom Farley to the Marshal's
office. A short time later, hand-
cuffed to Eddie Jones, a N
sentenced to serve one vear a:td
a day for mall theft. Hiss was
taken to the Federal house of de-
tention where he again was fin-
gerprinted. In about a week he
will be transferred to the federal
prison at Danbury, Conn.
The former State Depaflnwat
official, who helped organize the
United Nations and advised the
late President Roosevelt at the
Yalta Conference, may be releas-
ed from prison In a shorter time
than lt took to put him there.
|U.S Attorney Irving Saypol taid
that Hiss will be eligible to applv
for parole In one year and eight
monthsafter serving one-third
of his term. It has been two years
and seven months since Cham-
bers first told a congressional
committee that Hiss was a Com-

said. "I have nothing to add to
my statement when the Supreme
Court denied my writ."
At that time, he said. "The
wrong will surely be righted...
with a clean conscience, I conti-
nue to look forward to the time of
my vindication."
Hiss was grim and silent as he
walked into the drab Federal
courtroom. He wore a gray tweed
suit, replaced at the house of de-
tention by prison gray denim
pants and flannel shirt, and car-
ried a topcoat, hat and briefcase.
The briefcase contained tootn-
brvMi. paste, cigarettes and per-
sonal letters and papers.
He was accompanied by thret
attorneys and sat at the rear of
the room.
At 10:40 a.m., court clerk David
Sweeney called out:
"To surrenderd. Alger Hiss."
Hiss, lanky and till youthful
appearing, rose and approachud
the bench.
"Are you surrendering?" asked
Judge Ooddard. "Do you surren-
der to the marshal?"
"Yes. sir," Hiss replied.
Marshal Farley took his arm
and led Hiss through the rear
courtroom door.
On his way to the house of
detention, Hiss posed wearily for
photographers. Jones, the mall
thief manacled to him,,tried to
shield his own face.
Then, Hiss was put in with the
"one o'clock load" bound for the
house of detention. His compan-
ions were narcotics peddler.-;,
white slavers and other offend-
ers of federal law.
Of what Hiss would do In pri-

Larry Parks Reveals Hollywood
Big Names Involved With Reds
__Movie Actor Larry Parks has
given the House Un-American
Activities Committee the names
Of more than a dozen Hollywood
personalities he once knew as
fellow-Communists, a committee
source has revealed.
The informant said the list,
which Parks furnished at a clos-
ed session, includes several "big
name stars," and that some of
them had not been susDected by
the committee previously:
Rep. Harold H. Velde, R.. Ill,
ranking GOP member of the
committee, told the House mean-
time that he will press for con-
tempt prosecution of* Oscar-win-
ning actress Gale Sondergaard
and actor-director Howard Da
Unlike Parks, who readily ad-
mitted he was a Communist from
1941 to 1945, Miss Sondergaard
and Da Silva refused to answer
committee questions about pos-
sible Communist ties on the
grounds their answers might in-
criminate them.
Velde praised Parks as a "loy-
al, true American" and said he
was the first member of the act-
In" Drofession to make a clean
breast of past Red affiliations
At a public hearing Wednesday,
Parks begged the committee not
to make him "crawl through the
mud" and be an "Informer" on
Hollywood friends. When the
committee threatened him with
contempt action unless he sup-
plied names, the hearing went
behind closed doors. Some mem-
bers said afterwards that Parks
furnished only "four or five"
names at that session, and that
they already were known to the
Contradicting this earlier In-
formation, a committee source
later said that Parks "came
through in fine "style; at the clos-
ed hearing and voluntarily sup-
plied the names of about 12 mo-
vie actors whom he described as
members of his Communist cell
in Hollywood in the early 1940s.
The source said Parks was
then questioned about other mo-
vie figures, and identified sev-
eral as Communists.
Most, if not all, of those named
by Parks are expected to be sub-
p'ena sumes its hearings April 10.
One committee member, who
declined to be quoted by name,
predicted that several prominent
stars will follow Parks' lead in,

were "duped into joining the.
Communist Party years ago, and
since have repented.
In an apparent effort to en-
courage entertainers to come for-
ward with such "clear the rec-
ord" confessions. committee
members were doing their best
to protect Parks from his avow-
ed fear that his career; will be
ruined by his admissions.
Rep. Charles E. Potter. R.
Mich., said it would be a shame
if the movie Industry seeks to
blacklist "a man who cooperated
with the committee, who was a
member of the party and left
when he realized the political
implications of Communism."
Velde said Parks' attitude was
a "refreshing" change from the
stand taken by Da Silva and Miss
"They absolutely refused to co-
operate with the committee," he
said. "I shall ask that both of
these witnesses be cited for con-
tempt of Congress and for con-
tempt of the American people."
Penalty on conviction of con-
tempt Is one year in Jail and
$1.000 fine on each count. Ten
Hollywood writers, directors and
producers went to Jail for con-
tempt for refusing to answer

meriue at the head ot a notable
cast In the highly dramatic re-
creation of Prosper Merlmee's
novel, Colombo," romantic story
of a girl's relentless adherence to
the tradition of the Corsican
death vow.
It opens at the Central Theater
on Thursday.
Revolving around a code of ho-
nor which demands an eye for
an eye, the film plot portrays
Miss Domergue as a fiery-tem-
pered girl seeking to avenge the
murder of her father. Although
the French authorities declare a
young terrorist Is the murderer,
the heroine believes the real kill-
er to be the crafty old mayor of
the village, and she urges her
brother to avenge the family
honor, she already having sworn
reprisal at her parent's grave.
She takes a hand herself,
and this results in the breath-
taking climax, a four-way duel
In a fog-shrouded valley. The
unexpected results of the duel
leads to the picture's excite-
ment-packed conclusion. Film-
ed against actual Corsican
backgrounds, this dramatic
production offers Miss Dom-
ergue ample opportunity to
further display the charm's and
talent which earned her star-
dom in her first picture,
"Where Danger Lives."
Lending expert support to Miss
Domergue are two other new film
aclors, George Dolenz and Donald
Buka, with such experienced
character players as Hillary

with Louis Calhern repeating the
role Of Oliver Wendell Holmes,
which he created in the original
stage play by Emmet Lavery. The
show Is now playing at Balboa
Theater. ,.
Given even broader scope in its
screen treatment, this warmly hu
man and touching story of one
of America's most brilliant Jur-
ists and the wife with whom he
shared 57 years of marital hap-
piness brings a glow to the heart
of the spectator.
Told against an Impressive
background of Washington. D.
Cm the narrative has Its begln-

of his wife's death. Holme kerft

Coming to Tropical
Is Comedy-Mystery
According to Bernard Knowles,
director of J. Arthur Rank's new
comedy-mystery. "A Place of
One's Own," which opine Thur-
dav at the Tropical Theater, the
public Is tired of the mechanical
tricks involved In the average
ghost story on the screen.
Doors that open by themselves,
mysterious noises or spectral
forms disappearing Into thin air
are all too familiar to us. he adds.
Since Knowles himself Is an ex-
cameraman, we might have ex-
pected something special In the
way of photographic trickery in
hi latest film, which Is adapted
from Sir Osbert Sltwell's famous
ghost story of a haunted houe.
But the director felt that the
more intelligent way of treat-
ing the supernatural would be
bv suggestion rather than by
visual manifestations.
Accordingly, there are no dis-
appearing shapes in "A Place of
One's Own"no clever trickery
Just delicate suggestion and im-
aginative nhotography.

son un trueno horrsimo, zum-

aparato Imponente sobre las ca-
bezas del pueblo veleidoso que
se dejaba llevar de la emocin
sensual de una bella forma de

Entre el fragor de la tempes-
tad, en un relmpago desapa-

centella apareci Afrodita sobre

frodlta airada, dispuesta, por

a lanzar el anatema sobre el
pueblo blasfemo: SI no que-
ris que la ciudad sea arrasada
por el hierro, el fuego, habris
de desagraviar a Afrodita ma-
dre, dechado y suma de toda
hermosura... Ninguna curva de
mujer, ninguna sonrisa de a-

rado, puede ser comparable ni
en sueos, a la curva, a la son-
risa, a los besos de Afrodita. A-
rodlta es la perfeccin suma,
ella es la belleza misma en el
Elseo y en la Tierra.
Un clamor unnime reson en
los mbitos del palacio: Per-
dn Madre, perdn! Cmo po-
dremos desagraviarse v recupe-
rar tu amable tutela?.
En el aire sigui sonando la
voz airada de la diosa: Psique
debe morir: no es rival ma. pe-
ro es demasiado bella para ha-
bitar el mundo material. Cria-
tura semldlvina debe cruzar la
frontera de la muerte; pero su
belleza siempre permanecer, v
entonces podr tener culto. Des-
pus, la ciudad vivir para siem-
pre y ser prspera v feliz.
La multitud de efebos. poe-
tas, estenas y atletas la tom de
nuevo sobre el pavs de sus es-
cudos y la condujeron a un
monte escarpado fuera de 'a
ciudad, v all la abandonaron
entre luminarias fnebres so-

cabeza, a tiempo que apareci
por la parte del oriente un her-
moso mancebo, medio peregrino,
medio soldado, con casco y es-

para castigar. En un otero pr-

Afrodita es mi madre.

y la luz del crepsculo se que-

CARACAS. Marzo 21. (8.E.)
En desarrollo del magno pro-
grama de Industrializar el pas,
la Corporacin Venezolana de
Fomento viene cumpliendo un
extenso plan de electrificacin,
que comprende el establecimien-
to de plantas hidroelctricas a-
provechando las aguas de. los
ros Caroni v Urlbante y tr-
micas utilizando el combustible
a bajo precio de las Zonas pe-
troleras del Zulla y de Anzoa-
tegul y tambin el sostenimien-
to y ampliacin de algunas o-
tras. como la de "La Cebrera"
La planta "La cebrera" est
situada a ocho kilmetros de
Maracay, a la vera de la Carre-
tera Central. Tiene una poten-
cialidad de 15.000 kw. La ener-
ga es producida por dos tubos

Er. Director de
'El Panam Amrica"
Panam Marzo 21 de 1951
Sr. Director:
El 25 de Marzo, es el Da de
Grecia, el Aniversario de _
Independencia. Es una fecha
histrica, puede decirse para el
mundo civilizado, que a ware
de los siglos, ha presenciado .o
que puede una nacin peque'-.o
pero grande en corazn, hacer
por la libertad del hombre.
Las luchas de Grecia, y los
factores histricos que han con-
tribuido en ellas, se han debido
siempre, a su amor a la libertad
y a la preservacin de la civili-
zacin helnica que le ha here-
dado al mundo desde los tiem-
pos remotos en la antigedad-
Sus luchas de Marathn, Pa-
tea, se repitieron en la misma
i'orma en 1821, cuando el pue-
blo heleno se levant a lucnur
y morir por su Independencia.
y se repitieron Igualmente en
1940, cuando a pesar de irs
fuerzas aplastantes que queran
sumirla a la esclavitud, el pue-
blo Griego fiel a la tradicin,
se incorpor como un solo hom-
bre para oponer el valor de MM
hijos a la fuerza material del
enemigo que la atacara. Des-
pus de tres mil aos, los Grie-
gos, siguen considerando como
el bien ms caro para el hom-
bre, su amor y se presteza a
luchar por la libertad.
Al hacer llegar hasta Usted,
Seor Director, estos peiut-
mlentos. creo que "El Panam
Amrica", deba destacar en s".s
pginas el significado histrico
que tiene la fecha clsica de

tos primeros Juegos deportivos
panamericanos no han sido una
perfeccin en cuanto a organi-
zacin Es cierto que medios
materiales los ha habido relati-
vamente todos para perseguir,
por lo menos, la satisfaccin de
las aspiraciones de los argenti-
nos en cuanto a ofrecer monu-
mentales realizaciones a los vi-
sitantes. Se encuentran pistas,
estadios, canchas, piletas, aloja-
mientos adecuados y hasta lujo-
sos en todos los puntos cardi-
nales de Buenos Aires, Por este
aspecto no ha habido falla, pe-
ro paradjicamente, quiz sea
esta circunstancia la que con!
mayor Influencia ha contribui-
do en cierta manera a la deso-
rientacin y falta de mtodo en
otros aspectos de las circuns-
Se quiere dar una explicacin
para la dispersin y es el hecho
de que siendo Buenos Aires una
ciudad tan populosa y de tan
extraordinario permetro deba
darse u ofrecerse espectculos
a todos los sectores de la mis-
ma. Sin embargo, para las dele-
gaciones y an para el mismo
pblico que hubiera deseado es-
tar muy cerca de varios eventos
a la vez, ha significado la men-
cionada dispersin uno de los
ms notables inconvenientes. De
clmos que en Palermo, con rpi-
dos y adecuados arreglos, de los
que son tan fciles aqu para
obras monumentales-como su-
cedi con el veldromo que fue
construido en el trmino incre-
ble de tres meses o menos-hu-
biera sido fcil ofrecer el m-
ximo de atraccin para los par-
ticipantes de naciones extranje-
ras y para hablar con un poco
de egosmo tambin de comodi-
dad para los periodistas "Indi-
viduales", que han llegado aqu
con el encargo de cubrir la to-
talidad de los eventos, o por
lo menos de apreciarlos para
despus emitir su juicio. Slo
hubiera sido necesario para que
las presentaciones deportivas en
Palermo constituyesen un xito
la organizacin de los transpor-
tes, que aunque constituyen de
por si un problema actual y
gravsimo para Buenos Aires,
tal como en principio creemos
que se proyect hacerlo.
Todo se halla en Palermo pa-
ra la realizacin de las compe-
tencias. Estadio monumental y
completsimo tanto para atletis-
mo como para ftbol, como es el
de Rlver; pileta aledaa, donde
efectivamente se han llevado a.
cabo las. pruebas de natacin:1
ms abajo, no muy lejos, las
instalaciones de Gimnasia y Es-
grima, las del Lawn Tennis Club
las de tiro, deportes ecuestres,
polo, ciclismo. No habia. pues,
objeto de obligar a la celebra-
cin del ftbol en Avellaneda,
en otro extremo de la ciudad.
Quiz por 1 acapacidad y por
encontrarse en el centro ha que-
dado muy bien que el basket y
el boxeo se efecten en Luna
Park, pero en cambio los en-
cuentros de bisbol han sido
llevados a lugares que lindan
con las fronteras de esta na-
cin. En la Inmotivada disper-
sin de los escenarios de las
competencias se encuentran ori-
ginalmente los primeros tropie-
zos de organlracln del torneo.
Otro punto que no ha estado
estrictamente de acuerdo con
las normas tcnicas ha sido el
procedimiento, el proceder de
muchos ds- los Jueces y arbitros
que han actaado en las diferen-
tes eventualidades. De labios de
los argentinos hemos podido es-
* .* *
cuchar en natacin, en Luna
Park, cuando se trata de boxeo
y basket, en el River, en mo-
mentos difciles de atletismo,
protestas por fallos evidente-
mente parcializados.
Aleo parecido sucedi en una
de las pruebas femeninas de, cerrado, pasando
natacin, Adems por nuestros
propios ojos pudimos apreciar
cmo en la realizacin de la
prueba de 1.50 metros uno de
los atletas argentinos, que co-
rran en equipo, codeaba lnmi-
sericordemente a los contrarios
Inclusive al norteamericano que
conquist el primer puesto, el
cual, enardecido, una vez cor-
tada la lana, como aqu llaman
a la cinta, se le fue al local con
nimo de pelea. Sin embargo
el Juez de recorrido se hizo de
la vista gorda. Tampoco en bels-
ball se nombraron arbitros es-
peciales y ajenos a los intereses
comprometidos en el Juego. Por
fortuna todos los que han ac-
tuado son muy correctos. Pero
ciclista de fondo, con las inci-
dencias ya conocidas, no se co-
rri reglamentariamente, en ca-
rretera, de un punto a otro, que
pudiera haber sido regresando
por la misma va. En realidad
se hizo una especie de circuito
varias veces
por el mismo trayecto, dentro
de la avenida de circunvala-
cin General Paz. Esto Induda-
blemente no est de acuerdo
con las bases de la prueba, cla-
ramente definidas.' l
En cuanto al comit organiza-
dor, es evidente que todos de-
muestren la mejor buena volun-
tad, pero que. no han podido
hacer frente a la lngenta res-
ponsabilidad de organizacin.
Hay mucha dispersin de fun-
ciones tambin y desorientacin
en cuanto a las funciones que
debe cumplir esa institucin de
carcter transitorio.
En fin, que los Juegos Pan-
Americanos han dejado un saldo

cuadro logra otros do strikes, I cudro de 99.
Entra en su sptima Jugada y
la primera bola derriba 7 pines;
obtiene 27 puntos ms para el
quinto cuadro (20 del os dos
"strikes" y 7 de la primera bo-
la). Lanza la segunda bola y
derriba 2 nicamente fallando
asi el 'spare". En el sexto cua-
dre anota 19 puntos ms (diez
del 'strike" y 9 de los dos tiros
del sptimo cuadro), haciendo
154 en el sptimo cuadro

En el octavo cuadro tira pi-
nes con la primera bola, pero
con la segunda no logra el
"spare", haciendo asi un error.
(El error se marca con un
guin -).
En la primera bola del nove-
no vuadro supongamos que de-
rriba 8 pines y que han queda-
do de pie los nmeros 7 y 10.
Esto es un 'split", la bestia ne-
gra del Juego, temida por to-
dos. El "split" se marca con un
circulo alrededor de los pines
tumbados. Lanza la segunda bo-
la, y tumba uno de los dos plnes,
anotndose asi en el noveno
cuadro 171.
En el dcimo cuadro imagin-
monos que obtienen un "strike",
esto le da derecho a dos tiros
extras. SI en embos tiros extras
hace "strikes" ha terminado el
Juego con un triple anotndose
30 puntos ms, haciendo un to-
tal de 201.

La popularialma novena "Te-

mera Vuelta de la Liga Interna
de Softball de la Fuerza y Luz
en forma invicta al vencer en
gran Juego al "Garage y Alma-
cn" con pizarra de 7 carreras
a 4, en el Campo Dept. de Pal-
tilla, siendo ste el ltimo par-
tido de esa vuela.
Al parecer odo indicaba que
los Almacenistas Iban a ganar
este fuerte compromiso en la
forma que estaban Jugando, te-
niendo las anotaciones a su fa-
vor por 4 a 2 hasta el 5o episo-
dio, cuando los telefonistas fue-
ron a la casa empujando 3 ca-
rreras con 3 Incogibles y 2 pi-
fias. Es necesario destacar la
buena labor que desempe des-
de la lomlta el lanzador Pilo
Martinez, quien permiti 7 im-
parables teniendo al os Telefo-
nistas por espacio de 4 episo-
dios completamente dominados,
y estando a la ofensiva con 12
Incogibles, pero en la defensiva
los Almacenistas dieron al tras-
te con las aspiraciones de triun-
fo cometiendo 6 errores, ya que
los Telefonistas con su lanzador
estrella Carlltos Maestre tiene a
su haber el record ms codicia-
do por todo* los equipos, el cual
es anexarse aaa vuelta del Cam-
peonato en forma Invicta, o sea
6 triunfos sin ninguna derrota,
colocndose asi Maestre a la ca-
beza de los lanzadores ganado-

Continuacin de la 2a. leccin
Platn, uno de los ms excel-
sos griegos, formul este prin-
cipio: Con bella imagen dice
"el hombre es conductor de un
carro que arrastra dos caballos,
uno de ellos tiene alas y busca
llevar continuamente el carro
por el camino del cielo que es
de donde procede; el otro, afe-
rrado a la tierra de donde ha
salido, clava en ella sus cascos
como garras. Es preciso que el
conductor logre dominar estas
dos fuerzas discordes. Que ten-
ga en sus manos estas energas
contradictorias y que finalmen-
te obligue a los caballos a llevar
el carro sin sacudidas ni cho-
ques hasta el final del camino
de la vida." Ms tarde, en for-
ma ms directa deca: "El cuer-
po humano que encierra nuestra
alma, es un templo en que se
aloja un destello de la divini-
dad" "Hay que embellecer este
templo por medio de la gimnasia
para que Dios se encuentre bien
ep l. De este modo lo habitar
largo tiempo y nuestra vida
transcurrir armoniosamente".
Y en cuanto a la Interpretacin
misma del proceso educativo
global, platn opinaba: "La
Educacin, que es el arte de
conducir al nio por los caminos
de la razn, su deber consiste
en fortalecer el cuerpo tanto
como le sea posible en elevar
su alma en el mis alto grado
de perfeccionamiento. Platn
cultiv para si mismo estos prln
clplos. Era un gran atleta. Hasta
se cree que su nombre deriva de
las formas muy anchas de sus
espaldas. Por otro lado, era de
un espritu tan enormemente
Inquieto que cultiv el estudio
de muchas ciencias y sus an-
sias de aprender y perfeccionar-

estn Inviniendo millones de
dlares en la instalacin de
nuevas plantas de las cuales
saldrn muchas armas atmi-
cas en el futuro.
Estas plantas harn bombas,
proyectiles dirigidos, cabezas de
proyetclles, balas, torpedos y
minas con explosivos atmicos
que sern producido* en gran
escala en Carolina del Sur y
Kentucky. Tambin se construi-
r una nueva planta de energa
atmica en Colorado.
Las armas, que estn siendo
fabricadas bajo un vasto pro-

les ha dado muy poca publici-
dad hasta el momento. ._
El programa costar mas de
dos mil milanos de dlares. El
Congreso aprob mil sesenta y

pida ms. Hasta el momento,
la mayora de este dinero ha
sido destinado a las plantas da

atmicas y tambin har hi-
drgeno de triple peso, en caso
que la bomba de hidrgeno sea

pera que cueste alrededor de

La planta de Kentucky pro-
ducir uranio 236, que como el
plutonio, es un explosivo da

costar alrededor de 465 mi-
llones de dlares. Las dos plan-

De la fisin del atmo de

cin atmica. Entre estoe ma-
teriales figuran el plutonio de
fabricacin artificial usado en
las bombas atmicas, y l Ura-
nio 235, hecho al transformar
el metal Torio en reactor at-
mico accionado por el combus-
tible U-235.
Otra posible reaccin de ener-

La gripa o influencia, produ- |
cida por un virus o sea un tipo
de germen o microbio invisible
a los microscopios ms poten-
tes, es una enfermedad que se
presenta en forma de epidemia
de veloz propagacin, y que se ;
origina casi siempre en aquellas '
comunidades humanas que es-
tn sometidas a los trastornos

pesar de los inmensos estragos j
v miseria causados especialmen-
te en Europa, la griba no pudo j
cobrar su parte de muerte con I
la facilidad con que lo hizo en
los anteriores conflictos.
Es de tenerse muy en cuenta
que si en 1918, cuando la avia-
cin lnteroacenlca apenas exis-
ta como fantstico proyecto en '
la imaginacin de los hombres'
de ciencia, la epidemia se pro-
pag a todos los rincones del or-

decir que sus desastrosos efec-

que al tratarse de varios casos

Review Of The Week
THE QUIETNESS of Holy Week was reflected In
the quietness of the week's news. As many people as
possible went to the country for the week; Penono-
m's traditional Good Friday processions drew crowds
of natives and tourists alike. Shops, stores and busi-
nesses began 4o close on Thursday and then, and on
Friday, things were at a virtual standstill.
Off for the conference of Foreign Ministers was
Dr. Carlos N. Brln, accompanied by the Minister of
Agriculture Ricardo Arlas. Also In Washington Is Fin-
ance Minister Rodolfo Herbruger. In the U.S. capital
where he had served as Panamanian Ambassador, Dr.
Brln expressed high hopes for the conference, "to de-
fend all the American countries, all the Democracies
of the world. I seriously hope," he told Washington
reporters, "that after the conference there will be no
necessity to do any more fighting." Departure of the
?hree ministers left only four cabinet members on the
Isthmus, three of them holding down their own port-
iolios and those of their colleagues.
The Canal Zone week started off with burglary In
high places, officially and geographically. A prowler
ransacked the Balboa Heights home of Supply and
Service Director L. B. Moore while the Moores slept
last Sunday night. He drank a bottle of milk, ate part
of a loaf of bread, made off with a considerable a-
mount of cash and some clothes. The same night a
growler was frightened away from the Governor's
House, but not until a screen had been cut. For months
police and judges have been anticipating an Increase
in burglaries and thievings. It was of Interest, in view
of such predictions, that of the 17 defendants charged
with felonies in Balboa since Jan. 1, all but two have
been connected with thefts of one sort or another.
Seven of the 17 have been charged with burglaries..
Justo Fablo Arosemena. whose reputation is that
ol a solid, conservative businessman he has for
some years been connected with the National Distil-
lers was drafted this week to head the Panam
Trust Company. Asking the cooperation of the direc-
tors, the bank employes, the depositors, share-holders,
and the Government, he declared that he was serv-
ing, without remuneration, to try to reach some solu-
tion to the bank's problems.
Earlier in the week a committee of depositors had
met with Pres. Arnulfo Ariis, and held a separate
conference with the Trust Company's directors. At
the latter meeting directors and officers of the bank,
which was closed by court order Mar. 7. agreed to
resign at a stockholders meeting now set for April 5.
Depositors and stockholders also are forming a vigil-
ance committee, which will have access to the bank's
books and documents. Meanwhile auditors from the
VS. firm of Price, Waterhouse & Co. were examining
the bank's books. And Bank President A. G. Arango
arrived In New York aboard the 8.8. Cristobal for
hospitalization for a stomach ailment.
The move to test validity of Income tax for Zonlans
was snowballing. By Wednesday over 200 government
employes had signed up with the law firm of Collins
tc McNevln and McNevln was planning a Washington
trip for consultation with the legal firm of King ti
King. Several hundred o her retainer agreements had
been requested from the local firm and were being
returned to the law office, each accompanied by the
*5 retainer fee.
Four men from Panam and the Canal Zone are
leaving tomorrow for the Interior to look Into the
procurement possibilities of Panamanian agricultural,
k dairy, meat and forest products. Primary purpose of
the trip is to determine the possibility of increasing
purchases by The Panama Canal of such produce. Of
sneclal interest is the supply of already fattened
steers on a year-round basis. The quartet will also
visit Interior sawmills to check on prospective supply
for the coming quarters construction program.
Canal Zone troops, junior and senior, were in the
field this week. Near Chepo and Pacora 2,000 Army
troops were maneuvering to repulse a simulated hit-
and-run raid by Aggressor forces. For many, of the
men, It was their first lprge-scale maneuver, but they
were learning fast. On the Atlantic Side there were
smaller maneuvers, and while the soldiers were In the
field. 180 cadets from Wtfi school ROTC units besan
to leam what Army life is like in a four-day camp at
Fort Kobbe. "
After an almost six-year break, Panam on Thurs-
day announced that it had resumed diplomatic rela-
tions with Spain. DiDlomatic representatives will be
named by both countrle3. but have not yet been an-
nounced. Resumption of relations came with recelDt of
a message from Spain's Foreign offlcs to the Pana-
manian government.
A general meeting Is expected for shareholders In
the Canal Zone Cerldt Union to determine whether
present insurance practices will be continued. Mean-
while the Board of Directors has ordered that two
Insurance companies which had been operating in
the credit Union building vacate by AdtII 1. Insurance,
especially automobile Inrnrance. for the Credit Union
members, has been handled bv the two companies but
with an individual rather than, the union Itself as
agent. ,
And: The annual meeting of the PRR Board of Di-
rectors, at which policies will be set for the new Pan-
am Canal company, bee ins Monday and its decisions
will be closely followed here: on hand for the meet-
ing are Gov. F. K. Newcomer and Finance Director
Arnold Bruckner. Gatun locks go back to normal
schedule this coming week, with the overhaul com-
pleted In record time. Mrs. Judith de Herrera, hos-
pitalized with a broken leg. learned that she was win-

Now they are reddy for further secret tests of Ato-

are a British atomic bomb will be tested same place,

The old United States-Britain-Canada atom team
looks like coming together again. It,, suffered some fis-
sion when the United States split off after the Cana-
dian spy trials In 1946, claiming by implication to be
the only country with a security system to match the
need for atomic secrecy. *
But now all the erstwhile partners have gone
through the embarrassing experience of finding them-
selves sold out by spies (Britain by Klaus Fuchs, the
United States by Harry Gold, David Greenglass and

At the same time President Harry 8. Traman
announced from his Key West holiday headquart-
ers that the United States is mobilizing twice as
fast as in World War II. The armored forces have

War. .
These substantial, reassuring anti-Red gains made
Congresses squabbles look like section-scale skirmishes

In the shooting war, In Korea Douglas MacArthur
set off another of his celebrated diplomatic crackers
by inviting the Red commander In chief to meet him
Id the field for peace talks.
As so often before, ho on know whose authority
MacArthur was speaking on, if anyone. The State
Department, from force o. habit, practically disown-
ed him. Later it may be found he was not stepping
beyond a field commander's rights, a topic on which
long-time commander MacArthur Is apt to know as
much as the State Department.
So far as the fighting went, only strafing pilots
found business on the improve.
Road transport running down from Manchuria to
the Red armies provided sport aplenty. Near the
Manchurian border MIG IS Red jets added variety to
the hunting.
The score as between Red and U.S. jets still seems
to be about even.
So much for the shooting war. But in the ene
shot war (the shot being the one which lulled
Iran's Premier All Raimara/ the Russians were
still getting the inside running. There seemed
nothing Britain could do about Iran's nationali-
sation of the British owned, militarily vital Anglo

The songbird of the Kremlin could be heard
trilling towards Downing St., "Anything You Can
Do I Can Do Better."
If Britain sent soldiers, so could Joe, only more.
If Britain tried playing politics, Joe had vast vats
of nationalist feeling on tap in Iran, and an effec-
tive if illegal Communist party to stir them for him.
If Britain threatehed tt- withhold technological
help from the nationalized fields. Joe had plenty of
obllelng technological help waiting with bags packed
just across the border.
Best Informed guessers still doubt that Joe had any
active part In instigating the Razmara shooting. But
he did a stopwatch job of grabbing the opportunity of
cashing in on it. The West did a grandfather-clock
Mr. Andrei Gromyko continues to splatter salvops
of Slavic syllables around the Big Four Foreign Min-
isters' deputies meeting In Paris. The meeting, accor-
ding to those with long memories, was called to draw
uo an agenda for a Foreign Ministers' conference to
be held in Washington.
About the only thing drawn up so far Is the de-
puties' chairs. Seems Gromyko does not like the idea
of Western Germany rearming. What his views are
on a Foreign Ministers' meeting on one has been told.
Not that the deputies' are not conferring under dif-
ficulties. For the ten days of their deliberations. If
that means a long speech In Russian, there were
without the benefit of a host government.
For the next ten days they were without the
benefit of any host railways, subways, buses and
were threatened with finishing their conference
without gas, electricity, and maybe even food.
France had herself a general strike. It was about
' wages. These were upped 11 per cent, and the
trains ran again.
In the midst of all this General Jean de Lattre de
tlfy bones found there by a rubber hunting party and
speculation rose that the remains might be those of
a long-mlsslng Air Forces fighter pilot. Panam a-
warded the Order of Vasco Nez de Balboa to U.S.
Senator Dennis Cha/ez, prime mover for the Pan
American highway, and to Joseph E. Davles, former
U.S. Ambassador to Russia.
SUMMIT HILLS copped the Isthmian Inter-Club

half points ahead of Panam. Summit had 86 Vi, Pana-

Panama's uncrowned lightweight champion, Federi-
co Plummer, pounded out a unanimous decision over
Cuba's one-time world featherweight contender Mi-
guel Acevedo Sunday at the Panam Olympic Stadium.
Acevedo, 130, was slow and uncertain about carrying
out any plan of attack. He seemed' to be completely
"washed-up" at this stage and would do the right
thing by hanging up his gloves before his brains be-
come more scrambled.
Plummer, 128, was not as impressive or effective
as in his previous bout when he fought at 132. His
blows lacked steam.and only his willingness to
force the fighting after getting a cut in third un-
der his right eye proved anything.
Federico hit his man from all angles and yet did
not even seem to stagger him once throughout the
entire ten rounds.
The scheduled six-round semifinal was another
thing. Up-and-coming lightweight Leonel Peralta,
132 Vi, again displayed the exploslveness that has made
him the latest sensation in the lightweight division.
Peralta knocked out Teml Olaclregul. 134 Vi, In 2:10
of the first round when Olacregul tried to slug It out
with the hard-hitting Darln lad.
Olaclregul was down four times before Reteree Men-
doza finally halted the unequal slaughter. However,
Olaciregui was fast asleep the final time he hit the

rapid fire score to beat out Harris as both finished
with 188.
Balboa's Fred Wells was third with 187, and he
barely outpointed Clayton Brechon of the Balboa Sec-
ond Team to take the medal. Brechon also fired 187.
Bill Mlsner and Hugh Randall teamed up to take
the Henriquez Cup Doubles Tennis Tournament In five
thrilling sets over Julio Plnllla and Frank Hladky Sun-

Few hard punches were exchanged as each boxer
danced away from his opponent. The only action of
any consequence came In the final round when Brion
briefly showed his potentialities as a fighter.
However, it was neither enough to satisfy the crowd
nor hurt Lowry.
Red-hot Jim Ferrier copped the $10,000 Jackson-
ville Open for his fourth straight tournament vic-
tory this year. The first place $2,000 prise money
placed him with in striking distance of leader
Lloyd Mangrum.
Mangrum managed to hold onto his slim lead by

totalled 272 against Mangrum's 283. Jack Shields tied
with Mangrum for second place.

Jos "Chlrrbelo" Prez went the route for Panam
and allowed nine hits while his mates combed two

first basic patent on the tele-
6hone, a red letter occasion in
ie history of communications.
Three days later, on March
10, .1878, In Bell's rooms at 5
Exeter Place, Boston, the new
"membrane speaking" appara-
tus transmitted Its historic first
sentence in the voice of the in-
ventor "Mr. Watson, come
here, I want you!"
The 75th anniversary of the
patent finds approximately 75
million telephones in use
throughout the world, notes the
National Geographic Society.
Nearly three-fifths bt them are
in the United States.
The current milestone sug-
gests a glance at other patents,
Inventions, and ~~ ideas of this
versatile Edinburgh-born genius,
whose quest for a better means
of teaching the deaf to speak
lead him to invent the tele-
phone. But the record shows
that Dr. Bell would have been
long and well remembered even
If he had had no part in his
greatest Invention.
In 1879-80, Bell, satisfied
to leave development of the
telephone largely to others,
worked on a quite fantastic
idea telephoning without
wires'. He liked to regard, his
resulting photophone, pa-
tented in 1880, as his great-
est invention.
The photophone. transmitted
the world's first wireless tele-
phone messages. Conveyed on
electromagnetic radiations, they
were forerunners of the succes-
ses of Marconi, De Forest, and
other much later inventors. Bell,
however, used light waves in-
stead of radio waves to trans-
mit variations of sound, thus
limiting the medium to "line of
sight" distance.
Using the $10,000 of France's
Volta prize for Inventing the
telephone, Bell In 1880 estab-
lished the Volta Laboratory in
Washington. There, with asso-
ciates, he perfected methods for
using wax cylinders and discs
to make recordings for Edison's
phonograph, Invented in 1877.
Always Interested in the idea
of human flight, Bell in the
1890's helped Samuel P. Lang-
ley build a steam-powered model
plane that flew but carried no
Eliot. For 15 years he studied
I tes by way of seeking a plane
structure that would fly at low
speeds. He helped develop the
aileron, which replaced the
wing-warplng methods of con-
troling airplane flight.
As far boot as ltOt, Dr.
BU observed in his maga-
zine writings: "The airship
will revolutionize warfare..
it mav become a war-exter-
minating agency and thus
end all armed conflicts. The
nation that secures control
of the air will ultimately con-
tr olthe worttt."
Until his death at 75 on Au-
gust 2, 1922, Dr. Bell's active
mind continued its searchings.
He delved into distilling fresh
water from salt, high-speed mo-
torboatlng, sheep breeding, hu-
man longevity, the metric sys-
tem, and air conditioning. He
suggested a device to restore
breathing that embodies the
principle of today's Iron lung.
To beat oppressive Wash-
ington heat, Dr. Bell instal-
led a refrigerator in the at-
tic of his Connecticut Ave-
nue home, and filled it with
large blocks of ice covered
with salt. An asbestos-cov-
ered duct led the cold air
down to a room, which was
kept as nearly sealed as pos-
sible at the bottom to re-
tain the sinking cold air,
while its windows were open-
ed at the top. While diplo-
mats and legislators swelter-
ed, the thermometer in this
air-enditioned chamber re-
gistered a cool 65 degrees.
Dr. Bell helped found the Na-
tional Geographic Society in
1888, helped finance it through
early years, and served as its
president from 1898 to 1903. He
served as a life trustee of the
Society, and as a member of the
Board of Regents of the Smith-
sonian Institution. The centen-
nial of his birth was widely ob-
served on March 3, 1947, and he
was honored In 1950 by election
to the Hall of Fame of Great

About Its Climate
Utah need not take off Its hat to
Florida when It comes to hours of
sunshine, winter or summer.
According to a survey of U.S.
Weather Bureau records for the
past half century, Utah residents
can count on 125 to 200 hours of
sunshine each December and
January, compared with 175-200
hours In those months in Florida.
In summer, the analysis shows.
Utahns receive 350-375 hours of
sunshine per month, compared
with an average of 275 hours per
month in Florida.

Displaced Gypsies Catch On In N. Y.
TL t-iUi TrroH Ave. and chef St, Or rear Travel Agent
NEW YORK, Mar. 24 (UPi
Gypsy cooking is as mysterious as
Gypsy fortune telling, according
to a man who operates an all-
Gypsy restaurant here.
"When I started this restaur-
ant I was determined to make it
the only all-Gypsy eating place In
the city, from the kitchen to the
violinist," John Lobel explained.
Now he has a cheerful Hunga-
rian-born Gypsy cooking things
like "Szekely goulash" in the
kitchen. He claims he can't find
out her recipes for any of her
"She cooks the way most gyp-
sies play, by ear," he said.
Hungarian-born himself, Lobel
had watched with compassion as
Gypsies In Germany and Ger-
man-occupied countries were
killed by the Nazis during World
"There are more musical Gy-
| sies In America than in all of
south eastern Europe now," Lob-
el said.
He discovered It was surpris-
ingly easy to find loyal Gypsy
employes when he opened the
"Little Gypsy Restaurant." By
word of mouth news went out to
Gypsies scattered over the city.
"First came my violinist, Bela
Horvath," Lobel said. "Then Hor-
vath announced that his son
played the cimbalom and his wife
could cook. So now we have all
three of them here, besides many
of their friends."
A Gypsy artist decorated the
walls with murals depicting Gyp-
sy life.
"There are only a few things
that aren't authentic," Lobel
confessed. "You'll see things like
broiled lamb chops on the menu.
That's for people who Aren't used
to Gypsy cooking."
Students Lash Back
At Critical Profs
CLEVELAND, O., Mar. 24 (UP)
Students at Penn College here
hit back when professors criti-
cized them for their hard-to-
read handwriting.
The editor of the student pa-
per, Richard Hager, announced
formation of a committee of
students to improve the profes-
sors' penmanship.
"In mnay cases," he said,
"professors hvae turned in items
that they wished published but
even after gathering the entire
editorial staff we were unable
to decode the signatures, let
alone the contents."
Dr. Blake Crlder, one of the
complaining professors, con-
ceded that handwriting is no
indication of Intelligence, scho-
larship"or personality traits.

Mr. Thomas 3. Lynch. Acting Sec't of the Treasury
Washington, D.C.
Dear Mr. Lynch:
In a local paper o recent Issue, wherein is a copy o your
letter to the Hon. Representative Robert L. Doughton, Chairman
o the House Ways ii Means Committee, quoting the fact, that
the Federal Qov't stands to lose $25 Million, ii retroactive tax on
Federal employes ior 1950 Is rescinded.
In the ilrst place, Panama ha sovereignty over the Canal
Zone, and is not a possession o the Federal Gov't, which leases
same from Panam. We employes here had no afficlsl notice to
the effect, that the prospect of tax would be applied here, until
same was approved by Congress in Nor. 195tr Further, you have
no presented the true picture in reference to U.S. employes in
this locality. Herewith are some of the rights that we 4o not have
In relation to citliens In U.S.
1.) We have no voice or representation in Congress, only
when we send paid representation to Washington, D.C.
a.) We are not allowed to own property.
3.) We are not allowed to establish competitive business.
4.) We have no postal service to our homes,
5.) Numerous American oltizens here do not pay tax, because
their wages are derived from Steamship Agencies, Airline, Oil
Companies, private Contractors, dentists, etc. whom are not paid
by the Federal Gov't This fact is discriminatory.
. The local U.S. Commissaries have been exempted from
price Ireeze; another act o discrimination.
7. T Alien employes working in same offices with U.S. citliens,
have more take home pay. Still more discrimination.
8.) The Pan Canal has served notice ot all non-employe ef-
fective July 1, 1950 that an rents will be increased 100"-.
This ia a hardship Imposed on retired employes, who receive
meager retired pay, in addition to being subject to tax.
To get back to your quotation, "The Treasury stands to lose
money to the extent $24 million, dollars." In reference to this
phrase, I can not see, wherein the U.8. Gov't can lay claim to
this amount of tax, when there were no law in efiect as of Jan.
1, J950. After all, Congress was in session In 1949.
I* the retroactive Tax is legal as of Jan. 1, 1950. then It is
Just as legal to go back four or five years or more. The honesty,
"integrity, and patriotism of the U.8. employes in this locality, can
not be questioned. We put in the best part o our Uves here, and
then retire and return to UJS. to reestablish ourselves. Some retir-
ed employes do not far so welL

P.S.I is further suggested that all concerned clip this letter
and mail to their state Representative in Congress.
I know you are not operating a Lonely Hearts Club but, may-
be you could do the young lady (that is having trouble finding a
male friend) and myself a favor.
Why don't vou either get her permission to give me her mail-
ing address or, phone number or, send this letter to her? We could
get acquainted that way and not get publicity that I'm sure she
doesn't, and I know, I don't want.

However, here is the heart of the prayer the

It is almost unbelievable, but Mobillzer Charles
Wilson is getting his advice on minerals from a
lobbyist for the foreign mining Interests.
Wilson's top mining consultont tal^Searl'
Jr. who used to lobby on Capitol Hill i*^t do-
mestic mining program but now does his lobbying
ironX inside. Ii other words, he has been hir-
ed^ advise what the Governments policy should
be on securing minerals for defense. Yet. at the
same time he Is president of Newmont Mining
CompaS which has a rich stake in South African
rnineVThls Is another shocking example of how
private interests have Infiltrated into the defense
agencies to grind their own axes.
For Instance, here is the type of advice that
Searls ha. been whispering Into WlUon's ear:
1. Searls Is against government subsidies to do-
mestic mines, though his own foreign mining in-
terests have received BCA aid.
2 He te opposed to an expansion and explora-
tion programfor domestic mining but Prefers to
have the government buy from foreign sources,
such as hi South African mines.
S. He favors a reduction in the appropriations
for stockpiling, though this country is still dang-
erously short of strategic material.
Searls admitted these view behind closed doors
to the Senate Interior Committee, which canoa
him on the carpet after discovering he was Wil-
son* adviser on mining. Here are highlights from
hi startling but frank, secret tesUmony.
"ABT1 type o subsidy for mineral development
ia objectionable. It tends to ******* the indus-
try," Searl bluntly told the committee.
Chairman Joe OTtohoney. Wyoming Democrat
snorted Ms disagreement and thumbed through
an old copy of Fortune magazine. He found an
article about South African mines, and read how
they received "low taxes and liberal depreciation
allowances from the Government o South Africa.
"Do you think that's a subsidy^" demanded
But that doesn't do us any good because we
also have to pay American taxes, shrugged
Searls, whose Tsuneb Mine in South Africa is one
of the world's 10 leading producer.
'Unfortunately, a large number of American
citliens are paying taxes now," OMahoney re-
torted icily. "You make a distinction between
Government subsidies to your mine, but you want
the Government of the United States to deny
those subsidies to your competitors hi the United
Sttes. This raises the question of what kind of
advice you are going to give Mr. Wilson on ex-
panding our national production."
"Did you get ECA help to open those (South
African? mines?" broke In Sen. CUnto^ Ander-
Sunday AateiKtt
son, New Mexico Democrat.
Yes," admitted Searls.
And when those were opened, several smaller
mines In thte courtry were forced to close, throw-
ing many workers out of Jobs," snapped Ander-
He recalled that American miners had testified
in May, 1950, that they had been forced to shut
down their mines, stopping production and
thorwlng 2,000 men out of work.
"You feel you are in a position to give Mr. Wil-
son impartial advice?" demanded Anderson It
you can persuade him not to give help to open
and expand mines In the United State then, we
must look to sources outside of the United 8tate
for raw material."
Mine come, die off, and mine go. The best
way to help mines here Is to leave them alone,"
suggested Searls.
Tm trying to find out If your interests Inifor-
ei*n mine, are so great that youll be perjudteed
taWidtiee to Iff. Wilson." the New Mexico
senator persisted. "Our miner feel your oppo-
stttoDMtrandlng domestic production) wu

Labor News
And Comment
By Victor Riesel
The Senate crime busters threw many a union headquarter's
inner sanctum into a sweat. There are few labor leaders who
weren't forced to do business with the mobs in the days of Murder,
Inc., Capone's Syndicate and the Purple Oang.
Bach Industry had special "go-betweens" now very res-
pectable real estate operators, yacht owners and members of ex-
pensive and exclusive clubs. These "go-betweens" were the men
who, in effect, were the mobs' business agents. They carried ins-
tructions to union chiefs, levied and collected "protection dues"
ano>carrled complaints from the unions to the hoods.
It alPdeveloped into a multi-billion dollar business interwoven
with the higrfcst public officials. Union chiefs, businessmen and
politicians alike, had to obey or else, until as late as 1940...
And the labor leaders know that it would be difficult to explain
the terror at this late date...
Watch for a Juke box war in Detroit between the mobs and
the AFL union which services the hie music boxes. The tavern
owners and Juke distributors don't wnt to pay for union ser-
vice. Acid already has carved out newer designs on many a garish
coin box... There's been a revival of racket labor papers, which
not only sell space in non-appearing publications but also charge
extra money under pressure which "is also considered a fee
to assist in maintaining friendly relations between you (the. em-
ployer) and your employes to help you In every possible way from
time to time as the occasion arises." Any businessman who pays
for such a service, in fear of a strike, is Just a sucker...
The first three Hollywood witnesses to be heard this week by
the House Un-American Activities Committee will be Larry Parks
(the movie face for the late Al Jolson), Gale Sondergaard (who is
blasting the Screen Actors Guild for not coming to her defense)
and tough-faced Howard DaSylva... Then, after a postponement
until April, the Congressmen will call another thirty movie and
Broadway witnesses... The probe of industrial espionage, which at
first appeared likely to push back the film colony hearings, has
uncovered such hot and intricate material that the Committee Is
reconsidering its first impulse to disclose its findings to the public.
There Is at least one White House official who will be des-
perately embarrassed if the Costello probe goes too deep... Now
that former Communist Party .chief. Earl Browder, ha been clear-
ed of contempt of Congress by the courts on grounds that he did
answer questions satisfactorily, why doesn't he answer this oner
It's true, isn't it, that you have been offered from $25,000 to
$500,000 to tell all about the Party, privately or publicly? Why
haven't you talked if you're no longer a Communist?...
The public can expect a political duel between the Democrats
and Republicans with Senate investigations as weapons. To coun-
ter the expected revelations of the McCarran Senate sub-com-
mittee now going through several hundred thousand Institute of
Pacific Relations documents Involving Owen Lattlmore and a score
of State Dept. officials, the Democrats will do some probing of
their own.
The Senate Labor Committee subcommittee, directed by Hu-
bert Humphrey, labor's close friend on the hill, plans to probe la-
bor practices of some of the nation's biggest companies, especlal-
lf on the waterfront, where there's been espionage into union
activity. This is to prove just who the worklngman's friend Is, we
Here's the real story behind the deadlock between labor and
government in Washington. The spokesmen for Industry, such as
John Gall, talking for the NAM and the C. of c. tell me that:
"We want the war boards to have power only over wages.
That's what stabilization means. We want them to settle only our
disputes with labor over money. But the unions want the board to
have power to tell us what working rules, what seniority, what
union shop conditions to operate under. That eliminates all col-
lective bargaining with labor for the duration. We don't know
what the duration Is and this period may last for years and we
don't want to give up our rights in our plants for perhaps 10
On the other hand, labor spokesmen tell me that: "They (In-
dustry) would have us In a bag that way. We don't let that hap-
pen. We don't want to strike against war preparations. We're good
Americans first, last and always. But If we can't strike and we
dont have a disputes board to settle our grievances, and demands
for better working conditions, then we're stuck for the duration."
The time for Harry Truman to come to the aid of his country
bj sitting down with both sides and working things out Is now.
Walter Reuther, who may soon be U.S. Senator from Michigan
(If the AFL there doesn't buck him) will report to his April auto-
workers' convention that the union spent over $6,000,000 in strikes
in 1951. Then he will seek a dues Increase from his million fol-
lowers. Report Is they will turn him down...

Olivia de Havilland's Julietching, albeit others
were more mournful than Hamlet. Oddly, the

along the Whistle-Stop Circuit (and rolling up
1500 peris) Edward Everett Horton brought
"Sprintime for Henry" to The Big Hicktown.
Some premiere-goers reported it an amusing ro-

dling the daffy-taffy... There were welcoming
hallelujahs for the return of "The Green Pas-

WASHINGTON, (NBA) When Assistant Se-
cretary of State Edward G. Miller, Jr., was In
Buenos Aires, he was led a rugged pace by Seo-
ra Evita Peron, wife of the Argentine president.
She insisted that Secretary Miller inspect the new
Polyclinic hospital now nea** { completion. Since
elevators weren't running, m made him climb
seven fights of stairs and look Into every room.
Evita emerged from the ordeal fresh as a daisy.
Miller was fagged.
In all. Secretary Miller spent some seven hours
with Evita during his visit, though they were
never alone. The conversation never lagged. A
year ago, 8eora Peron had been hostile to the
VS. This time she was cordial, constantly expres-
sed the need of the Argentine for friendliest re-
lations with this country. Reason for her change
was that she now felt United States policy had
Argentine minister of interior recently stated
that women could vote, and therefore could hold

delayed the loan, and the authority for such pro
president, is looking up. The Argentine constitu-
tion says the vice president succeeds to the pre-
sidency if president dies or resigns. So Evita
might become first woman head of an American
John Foster Dulles, special representative of
the President in negotiating a peace treaty with
Japan, carries in his pocket a letter from Gen.
Douglas MacArthur. Text of the letter has just
been made public by the State Department. It
praises Ambassador Dulles, saying, "Under your
able presentation you have given Japan a new
appreciation of the great moral stature of the
United States... It closes with, "Yours has in-
deed been a high order of universal service."
Ambassador Dulles explains that this letter Is
a kind of insurance policy. It protects him from
attack by the ; rdent followers of General Mac-
Arthur. And If anyone should accuse him of fol-
lowing the Truman-State Department Une, Am-
bassador Dulles can pull out the MacArthur letter
and show 'em.
Worst thing hung on Reconstruction Financa
Corporation by Senator Fulbright's investigating
committee is, of course, the Lustron loan lor $37,-
500,000. It resulted in a $25,000.000 loss to the gov-
ernment. RFC's alibi on this deal Is that It didn't
want to make this loan, but was forced into it by
other government agencies and by Coneress. First

Defense Mobllizer C. E. Wilson Is known to
be a tough fighter, but he always minimizes his
battles. His reaction to the labor unions' walk-
out from defense agency jobs was typical. After
talk'ng the matter over with President Truman
at Key West, Mr. Wilson said he didn't know what
the hue and -ry, the excitement and shooting,
were all about.
Similarly. Mr. Wilson has denied that there was
ever any argument between him and Price Sta-
bilization Director Michael V. DISalle and denied
that he pulled the rug out from under DISalle In
canceling the original wage ireeze order. Mr. Wil-
son likewise has denied that there was ever any
row between him and Ferdinand Eberstadt. dur-
ing the last war, when War Production Board was
split. "We had a one or two minute argument,"
Mr. Wilson once explained. "Why he got out had
nothing to do with Wilson."
Mr. Wilson can't understand Washington's in-
terest particularly by the press and radio In
official fights over policy. His philosophy has
been expressed as, "Of course some people ara
going to object to what you do. So what' 8o you
find out what's the right thing to do. Then you
go ahead and do it."

by the American Red Cross in
Its current iund campaign will

over the original estimates for
, the current fiscal year and ij
-.31 percent of this year's goal.
The increase Is a result of war
in Korea and government plans
tfor a military strength of 3,500.-
000 by July 1.
At the beginning of 1951 the
Red Cross had a paid staff of
2.180 in Its military program. Of
this total 1,830 are on field as-
signments with troops in this
country and overseas. More than
400 additional assistant field di-
rectors .recreation workers, and
secretaries are urgently needed
to work with able-bodied and
hospitalized servicemen.
In the Far East, personnel and
expenditures have more than
doubled since fighting broke out
in Korea last June. The open-
ing of new military bases and
hospitals In this country has
.also resulted In substantially in-
creased needs for workers and
supplies. Many thousands o
volunteers function under the

The Red Cross had 216 work-
ers In the Far East when the
Korean conflict began. Today
there are over 350 on duty there.
Harriman said that a Red Cross

iKorea. Nearly 70 additional field
workers have since moved into
the peninsula.
Most of them share the
.hardships and danger of the
fighting forces." Harriman stat-
ed, "to bring traditional Red
Cross welfare services to troops
in the combat areas and to
those in hospitals. Several Red
Cross field directors have been
wounded and at least one has
been awarded the Bronze Star

"Probably the outstanding Red
Cross accomplishment In the
Far East, however, has been the
magnificent program of service

bled force of more than 3,600
volunteers in Japan." Harriman
"These people families of

In addition to the more than
$26,000.000 which the Red Cross
ha. budgeted for its Services to
the Armed Forces operations
during the fiscal year ahead,
more than $14,000,000 will be

Through this cooperative ven-
ture whole blood is being col-

processing into plasma military
and defense stockpiling.
Every military quota for whole
blood shipments to Korea has
been filled, more than 32.000
pints of this life-saving fluid
having been delivered to mili-
tary processing laboratories in
California since July.
Financial assistance to mem-
bers of the armed forces and
their dependents during the
calendar year 1950 totaled more
than $6.846.700 an increase of 34
percent over the previous year.
This aid was Riven by field di-
rectors with troops and by Home
Service workers in most of the
3.738 Red Cross domestic and in-
sular chapters. Home Service
financial aid, primarily to fa-
milies of servicemen totaled
more than $3,300,000 an in-
crease of 57 percent. A monthly
average of more than 5,000 paid

thousands of volunteers, conduct

aceras van poniendo su nota de progre-
so, su cancin al esfuerzo de un funcio-
narlo pblico y a la cooperacin del pu-
blico porque la capital se vea ms bo-
nita, ms alegre, ms limpia digamos.
Vega Mndez rindi recientemente un
informe al Presidente del Consejo Mu-
nicipal. En l se detallan 46 obras que
ha realizado, de Inters comunal, a un
costo de ms de B.133,000.00. Van apa-
rregimientos de la capital y de Inmedia-
to se comenzar a construir uno en el
Maraen. Es una labor de aliento que
necesita un gran esfuerzo realizarlas por
las condiciones econmicas del flaco
municipal, un poco ajustadas.
Pero Lito Vega est seguro de com-
pletar esta tarea antes de que se le
venaa el periodo y cuenta con el res-
paldo de los concejales para ello.

bre modesto que no ha aprendido an

capital. Son muchas otras las obras que i
ha realizado, pero esto de las acera 4 |
es lo que la gente ms ve, lo que cuen-
to en el nimo del pblico en general,
lo que aprecia el chivero, el conductor
de carros, el peatn que antes tenia que
ser equilibrista, una especie de consa-
grado caminante de las cuerdas flojas,
para v evitar que un auto le partiera !a
crisma. Y es tambin Jo que molesta a

el alma y ese alguien no serian segura-

Y entonces se mont una campaa te-
naz y se llam a las firmas constructoras.
Un buen dia la ciudad capital se dio
cuenta de que grupos numerosos de
hombres se dedicaban a limpiar fajas
adyacentes a los cordones de las calles,
que se cortaba la maleza y se colocaban
unos tuqultos en coquetona forma de
rectngulos. Rpidamente fueron cubier-
tos con capas de concreto y comenzaron
a surgir las aceras como prodigio, co-
mo milagro de cubilete y entonces la co-
sa fu resultando como una epkjemia.
Una de las obras que con ms calar prohij el Alcalde del Distrito es la re-

Novelas de Misterio que escribi lo realidad
La Tragedia Del Reverendo Janssen
NUEVA YORK, Febrero 27. (BPS). La poblaCin de
Krem, en el estado de Dakota del Norte, vio interrumpida su ha-
bitual calma nocturna el 15 de agosto de 1838 por algo poco co-
mn all, un Incendio.
A la natural alarma que un suceso de esta ndole causa se
anadia en este caso un sentimiento de pena general, porque la
Iglesia era un hermoso edificio de que se enorgulleca la ciudad
y su pastor, el reverendo Heio Janssen. era un hombre que go-
zaba de grandes simpatas. Sus habitaciones estaban situadas en
la parte posterior del templo y pronto fueron reducidas a ceniza.
La esposa y nios del reverendo Janssen estaban ausentes,
pues habia sido necesario llevar a la primera a un hospital de
Bismarck para ser operada. Pero Janssen mostr ansiedad por
la criada, Alma Kruckenberg. una muchacha de diecisis aos
que dorma en el piso alto de la rectora. Cuando se produjo
el incendio, dijo, l estaba acostado pero despierto. Se visti
apresuradamente y se lanz a la calle. Luego record a Alma v
quiso llamarla, pero va el fuego haba invadido todo el piso alto,
destruyendo la esca.'pra que le daba acceso.
Los temores del reverendo se
Vieron trgicamente confirma-
dos. Entre los escombros fu
hallado el cuerpo casi carboni-
zado de la infeliz muchacha.
La destruccin del templo y
la muerte de la Joven Krucken-
berg causaron viva impresin en
Krem. Los principales vecinos
e reunieron Inmediatamente
para expresar su simpata al re-
verendo Janssen v ofrecerle su
ayuda para reconstruir a igle-
sia. El pastor, hombre de cin-
cuenta y un aos, gozaba de
gran prestigio en la localidad.
Era un individuo apacible, de-
dicado enteramente al ejercicio
de su ministerio, cuya vida se
consideraba ejemplar. Y todos
sus veclnosrsin distinciones re-
ligiosas, se mostraron prontos a
ayudarle ahora que era vctima
de la desgracia. El incendio, se
dijo desde el primer momento,
e debi a un corto circuito, o
quiz a que la criada no haba
apagado debidamente la chime-
nea principal, que era de lea.
En cuanto a la muchacha, sus
restos fueron trasladados a la
morgue local para ser sometidos
a una autopsia, cosa de rigor en
estos casos, aunque ahora pare-
ta superflua. Era evidente que
Alma habia muerto sofocada por
el humo y quemada por las lla-
mas que en pocos minutos en-
volvieron su dormitorio y el res-
to de la rectora y el templo....
Pero el resultado de la autop-
sia produjo una impresin mu-
chsimo mayor que la ocasiona-
da por el incendio. Porque de-,
mostr, primero, que la joven
estaba embarazada y segundo,
que cuando su cuerpo fu al-
canzado por las llamas ya es-
taba muerta, y muerta por en-
Esto dio un cariz enteramente
nuevo al caso. Se hizo evidente
que el incendio habia sido In-
tencional, con el objeto de des-
truir el cadver de la mucha-
cha o de hacer aparecer su
muerte como accidental. Porque
sera una coincidencia verdade-
ramente extraordinaria que el
fuego se hubiera producido for-
tuitamente poco despus de fa-
llecer Alma, si se trataba de un
suicidio. Por otra parte, se tra-
taba de una muchacha campe-
sina, de carcter sencillo v li-
mitada educacin, en quien era
difcil suponer Intenciones sui
admitir que al vrse deshonrada
decidi quitarse la vida, enve-
Pero cmo explicar la extra-
ordinaria coincidencia de que el
incendio se produjera inmedia-
tamente despus de su muerte,
como si una mano oculta quisie-
ra por ese medio borrar las hue-
llas de la deshonra?
En las novelas romnticas o-
curren a veces cosas asi. Pero la
polica no es romntica nunca.
Se atiene prosaicamente a los
hechos. Y stos tendan a poner
en evidencia el fro clculo de
un criminal ms bien que la in-
tervencin sobrenatural de una
providencia generosa...
Quin era este criminal, se-
ductor de Alma v seguramente
Incendiarlo tambin?

ta alguna qu seguir. La nica
persona que poda dar alguna
luz pareca ser el propio reve-
rendo Janssen. puesto que habia

Pero el reverendo no pudo a-
portar dato alguno de importan-
cia. Mostr gran sorpresa al en-
terarse de que Alma, la inocen-
te nia tan religiosa y seria,
estaba embarazada y habia
muerto envenenada. Una trage-
dia as pareca escapar a su
comprensin de pastor evang-
lico, de hombre dedicado a las
cosas divinas, para quien las
pasiones humanas slo merecen
desdn v compasin.
Y y en un terreno ms prc-
tico, al ser Interrogado por las
autoridades no dl ningn in-
forme nuevo que ayudara a es-
clarecer el misterio. Repiti lo
que ya todos saban: cmo la
joven Kruckenberg habia entra-
do a su servicio a solicitud de
sus propios padres, que eran po-
bres v tenan mucho* hijos y
deseaban que ella les ayudara.
Siendo lut%ranos. estaban segu-
ros de que ninguna casa ofrece-
ra a su hija la seguridad v ayu-
da que poda brindarle la del
pastor. Y en cuanto a la con-
duca de Alma, era enteramenle
ducta de Alma, era enteramente
berlo sido, aunque la realidad
resultaba ahora otra...
Mucho ms simple y lgico
era creer que habia sido sedu-
cida y que su seductor era el
causante directo de la tragedia.
Pero si esta teora era correcta,
dnde estaba el seductor?
Las investigaciones hechas
para establecer los antecedentes
de la muchacha indicaron que
no tena novio conocido. Era,
como se ha indicado, muy jo-
ven, pues acababa de cumplir
diecisis aos. Habia vivido con
sus padres en los alrededores de
Krem hasta que entr al servi-
cio de los Janssen. Y llevaba una
vida recluida, sin que se la vie-
se nunca con amigos. En rea-
lidad, nunca sala de noche. Su
patraa tenia el ms alto con-
cepto de ella, considerndola
una joven modelo.
Pero los hechos son los he-
chos. La cruda realidad sea-
laba que la Joven Kruckenberg
tenia tres meses de embarazo
cuando se produjo su muerte en
forma tan extraa.
La teora del suicidio gan
fuersa cuando se conocieron los
buenos antecedentes de Alma.

ta, criada en un ambiente se-
vero como lo es en general el

Las declaraciones del clrigo,
as como las de los vecinos y
amigos suyos, no dieron ningu-
na ayuda a las autoridades que
trataban de poner en claro el
asunto. Pero conforme se iban
agotando las fuentes de infor-
macin, una cosa se iba ha-
ciendo evidente: que las nicas
personas que trataron a Alma
con intimidad haban sido los
esposos Janssen.
Y como la seora Janssen es-

en seguir esta lnea de razona-

personas hallaban a su confi-

individuos como los detectives y
policas, se dijo, gentes incrdu-
las e irrespetuosas, son capaces
de manchar con sus ultrajan-
tes suposiciones a un ministro
^e Dios, que est por encima de-
las pasiones mundanas. Y so-
bre todo, a un hombre como el
reverendo Janssen, cuya vida
constitua un verdadero ejemplo
de las virtudes cristianas...
Pero a pesar de la Indigna-
cin popular, el pastor fu
mantenido en una celda y lue-
go acusado como presunto autor
de un doble crimen: asesinato e
Janssen se enfrent a esta a-
cusacln con la calma que pue-
de esperarse de un clrigo ilus-
trado. Sin perder su serenidad
rechaz los cargos que se le ha-
dan, expresando la seguridad
de que su inocencia seria reco-
nocida y que pronto se le re-
habilitara a los ojos de sus con-
ciudadanos y feligreses.
Pero las autoridades no se
mostraron impresionadas por su
actitud. Y con esa tenacidad
exasperante que las distingue so-
metieron al pastor a una serle
de interrogatorios que termina-
ron por minar su confianza.
Y de pronto se dio por ven-
cido. Con gran estupefaccin dej
sus amigos y gran complacen-
cia de los investigadores, admi-
ti su culpabilidad. S, era cier-
to lo que la polica sospechaba.
El era el seductor de Alma y e)
Pero no era l slo ni el prin-
cipal pecador. La verdadera cul-
pable, dijo, habia sido Alma.
Desde que ingres a su casa pu-
so en Juego sus artes de mujer
para atraerle. El. un hombre de
cincuenta v un aos, casado fe-
lizmente y dedicado por entero
a sus obligaciones religiosas, no
par mientes al principio en la
coquetera de la muchacha. Es-
ta no era para l otra cosa que
la criada. Pero luego las fre-
cuentes ausencias de la seora
Janssen. debidas a su enferme-
dad, dieron oportunidad a la jo-
ven para Ir Imponindose a su
amo. "S que he hecho mal. "de-
clar el reverendo. "Pero la car-
ne es dbil y un clrigo es. des-
pus de todo, un hombre como
cualquier otro. Yo no busqu a
Alma. Pero ella en cambio tra-
taba de quedarse a solas con-
migo constantemente y con
cualquier pretexto se me. apro-
ximaba v trataba de hacerse a-
radable. Hasta que lleg un da
en que no pudo vencer la ten-
tacin. La hice mi amante.
Cuando me dijo que estaba em-
barazada despert a la dura rea-
lidad. Me sent aterrorizado al
pensar en el escndalo que iba
a producirse cuando mi esposa
y mi congregacin se enteraran
de lo que suceda. Qu hacer?
Cmo resolver el horrible pro-
"Muchas horas pas buscando
una solucin. Pero no hallaba
ninguna. Alma, al saber que iba
a ser madre, se volvi exigente,
amenazndome con decir la ver-
dad a mi esposa. Mi vida con-
yugal y mi carretera a punto de
ser destruidas Tx>r mi pecado,
"nuestro" pecado, v tras de mil
dudas y vacilaciones, resolv e-
liminar a Alma. Qu otra cosa
poda hacer para que no se des-
cubriera todo, para no destruir
mi hogar y mi carrera? Y para
ocultar mi crimen, incendiara
mi casa y el templo. Asi nadie
sospechara la verdad. Al menos '
esto es lo que pens... Pero
Dios no permite que el pecado
quede impune y ha castigado
mi soberbia..." "v
AI pedrsele que diera detalle.?
ms precisos, Janssen relat
que, habiendo resuelto matar a
Alma, se decidi a hacerlo por
envenenamiento, puesto que es-
te medio era el ms fcil y si-
lencioso. Como desde que la se-
ora Janssen estaba ausente co-
man juntos, y tenan slempie
vino en la mesa, le ech veneno
a la copa que ofreci a la Jo-
ven. Ella se lo bebi sin la me-
nor sospecha. La muerte se pro-
dujo poco despus. El estuvo
todo el tiempo arrodillado a yu
lado, rezando en su Biblia, pre-
sa de la mayor desesperacin.
Finalmente, ya muy avanzada
la noche, se dio cuenta de que
era necesario poner en prctica
la segunda parte del plan, ia
de Incendiar la casa y el tem-
plo para que el fuego ocultara
su crimen.
Le cost mucho ms trabajo
tomar esta resolucin, porque :a
casa albergaba todas sus cosas
terrenales, su ropa, sus muebles,
su biblioteca, cuanto un hom-
bre y especialmente un clrigo
aprecia... Y luego el templo, el
hermoso templo que era su ra-
zn de ser, su carrera, su mi-
nisterio, su esperanza... Cuan-
do las llamas devoraron casa e
iglesia, olvido por unos minutos
que tambin estaban carboni-
zando el cuerpo de su victima y
sinti una honda impresin. Pe-
ro luego su razn se impuso. Es-
taba seguro de que haba hecho
lo nico que poda hacer para
salvar su reputacin y su vida
misma... an a costa de otra
vida. Mejor dicho, de dos. por-
que Alma llevaba en sus entra-
as a un hijo, fruto de su amor
El jurado que conoci de este
caso tuvo que reunirse de no-
che, pues fu tanta la indigna-
cin, del pueblo contra el pas-
tor al saberse la verdad que se
intent lincharle. No hubo ne-
cesidad de deliberar mucho pa-
ra declarar a Janssen culpable.
Y conforme a la ley de Dakota
del Norte, fu condenado a pri-
sin perpetua.

sido educada en la escuela pri-
marla Colbert v en seguida en el
colegio Chaplal. oue durante un
ao v medio haya estudiado le-
yes en la Facultad, no ha tenido
mucha Importancia en su vida.
De sus gustos infantiles hay
huellas an en su obra: la afi-
cin por la ficcin teatral, el
gusto v el sentido de la escena,
tan brillantemente explotado en
las piezas rosas, el gusto v el
sentido de lo cmico, v tal vez

menta por las comediantes de
dones buscando en los escena-
rios de pequeas ciudades, don-
de representan grandes papeles,
una apariencia engaosa v con-
soladora, la pasajero revancha
de sus fracasos.
Anouilh ha escrito siempre. A
los doce y catorce aos escriba
piezas en verso. Ms tarde mate-
rializ su anhelo de expresin
dramtica, representando con
algunos compaeros delante de
un pblico de parientes v ami-
gos. Pero lo que ms Influy en
su obra fue el haber visto, a los
dieciocho aos, el Siegfried, de
Giraudoux. Sall trastornado de
la representacin y regres tres
veces, calmando su sed en esa
fuente de alto teatro, que por
in encontraba. Desde entonces
descubri a todos los maestros
modernos, comenzando por Clau-
del. Durante este periodo de fie-
bre fue cuando termin sus dos
trmeras piezas: Mandurina. a
os diecinueve aos, v despus,
Herminia, a los veintin aos. A
estas dos siguieran varias otras
pero, en realidad, fue debido al
xito de Herminia que Anouilh
decidi vivir del 'eatro y del
Aos ms tarde, despus de
muchos y ruidosos triunfos de
varios gneros. Anouilh abri
con Euridice v Antfona un nue-
vo ciclo, completado con Madea.
En estas sombras piezas rejuve-
nece antiguos mitos trgicos, sin
que falten en ellas algunas In-
tenciones cmicas. Los buscados
anacronismos de Antfona, las
vestiduras decididamente mo-
dernas de los personajes, la Im-
portancia del humorismo en el
desarrollo de la accin, acusan
el desenvolvimiento de un plan,
de enmarcar de rosa el negro
del cuadro de estas piezas legen-
darias. Con ellas. Anouilh toca
el fondo de su desesperada filo-
sofa. Euridice. repeticin de te-
mas antiguos y anuncio de te-
mas nuevos, prepara la eleccin
de esta flor de un brillo magn-
tico que constituye Antitona.
Nada ms simple, en su intensa
sobriedad, que esta tragedla que

mino, estrechamente conducida
por su destino. "Se llama Anti-

a desenvolverse la tragedia.
Cren trata de salvar a Antigo-

desarrolla la tragedia.
Antigona es una tragedia de
lo absoluto. Al contrario de las
otras heronas de Anouilh. An-

pasudo encadenador a un recha-
zo de la vida v de la dicha. Dice
oue no a la vida, sencillamente,

an no cerrado, prolongamiento
de las plcazs rosas dominada
por las criticas agudas, la des-
confianza en el amor:
El teatro de Anouilh deja po-
co lugar a la esperenza. "la su-
cia espanza". como l la llama
en Antfona. En este punto, el
teatro de Anouilh est de acuer-
d ocon la conciencia trgica de
nuestros tiempos. Pero, adems,
es un teatdo que pone en accin

Los Gigantes:
TAGORE e Iqbal son dos gi-
gantes. Ambos fueron poetas de
la misma talla, pero el genio
creador de Tagore se manifest
en mltiples formas: fu nove-
vellsta. autor de narraciones,
pensador, artista, msico, dra-
maturgo y crtico descollando
en todos los gneros. Su pasmo-
so genio, precisamente por abar-
carlo todo de esa manera, to-
dava no ha sido valorado ple-
namente. Tanto Iqbal como Ta-
gore se percataron de que la
cultura no podra sobrevivir si
no se la orientaba de nuevo y
se proceda a una revisin de
sus valores: esto era esencial pa-
ra darle plenitud v vigorizarla
con Influencias exteriores: era
necesario, en rigor, para llegar
a la universidad. Tagore fu el
genio que, sin dejar de ser com-
pletamente indio, fu un autn-
tico ciudadano del mundo.

Vive detrs de Notre Dame, jante al Sea. Ui barcas are-

cetceos fluviales, frente a mi ventana.
La Catedral es na barca ms grande que eleva como sin
stil su flecha de piedra bordada. Y en las maanas me asomo
a ver al an est, Junto al rio, la nave catedralicia, si sus ma-
rineras tallados en el antiguo granito, no han dado la orden,
cuando las tinieblas cubren el mundo, de sarpar, de irse nave-
gando a travs de los mares.
Ye quiero que me lleve. Me gustarla entrar por el rio Ama-
sena en esta embarcacin gigante, vagar por los estuarios, in-
dagar les afluentes, y quedarme de pronto en cualquier ponto
de u Amrica amada hasta que las lianas salvajes hagan un
nuevo manto verde sobre la vieja catedral y los pjaros asnies
le den un nuevo brille de vitrales.
O bien dejarla anclada en les arenales de la costa del sur,
cerca de Antofag asta, cerca de las islas del guano, en que el es-
tircol de los cormoranes ha blanqueado las cimas, como la nieve
dej desnudas las figuras de proa de la nave gtica. Qu impo-
nente y natural estara la iglesia, como una piedra ms entre
las rocas huraas, salpicada por la furiosa espuma ocenica, so-
lemne y sola sobre la Interminable.
Yo no soy de estas tierras, de estos bulevares. Ye no perte-
nezco a estas plantas, a estas aguas. A mi no me hablan estas
Yo quiero entrar por el Rio Dulce, en el gran silencio verde.
Salir en la maana de Puerto Barrios, navegar todo el da en-
tre las enramadas, asustar las ganas para que levanten su re-
pentino relmpgo de nieve. Yo quiero a esta hora ir a caballo,
silbando, hacia Puerto Natales, en la Patagonia. A mi lado iz-
quierdo pasa un ro de ovejas, hectreas de lana rolliza que a-
?ansa lentamente hacia la muerte, a mi derecha palos quemados,
pradera, olor a hierba Ubre.

una llama, Venezuela est ardiendo. Yo no veo las nieblas de
este gran otoo, yo no veo las hojas enrojecidas. Detrs de Pars,
cerno un fanal de faro, de luz multiplicada, arde Venezuela. Nadie
ve esta lus en las calles, todos ven edificios, puertas y ventanas,
personas apresuradas, miradas que enceguecen. Todos van su-
mergidos en el gran otoo. No es mi caso.
Yo detrs de todo veo a Venezuela como si detrs de mi ni-

Cuando el Paraguay sea libre, cuando nuestra Amrica sea
libre, cuando sus pueblos se hablen y se den la mano a travs de
los muros de aire que ahora nos encierran, entonces, vamonos al
Paraguay. Quiero ver all donde sufrieron y vencieron los mos
y los otros. All la tierra tiene costurones resecos, las sanas sal-
vajes en la espesura guardan jirones de soldado. All las prisio-
nes han trepidado con el martirio. Hay all una escuela de he-
rosmo y una tierra regada con sangre spera. Yo quiero tocar
esos muros en los que tal ves mi hermano escribi mi nombre y
quiero leer all por primera vez, con primeros ojos, mi'nombre
y aprenderlo de nuevo, porque aquellos que me llamaron en va-

Si quieres insultarme, dime cosmopolita.
Cosmopolita es el que no tiene patria ni pueblo. Yo no tengo
ms que esto, y soy rico. Soy rico de patria, de tierra, de gentes
que amo y que me aman. No hoy un patriota desdichado, ni co-
nozco el exilio. Mi bandera me envi besos de estrella cada da.
No soy desterrado porque soy tierra, parte de mi propia tierra,
indivisible, espacioso.
Cuando cierro ros ojos, para que por dentro de m pase como
un rio la circulacin del sueo, pasan bosques y trenes, desier-

gazara su caudal y de pronto todas sus aguas entraran en mi

estos rboles un aroma' tenaz. Es a veces el olor fro del laurel
austral, que cuando cae desde su torre de cuarenta metros, en
la selva, golpea como un trueno y desplaza cien toneladas de
perfume invisible. O se el olor de caoba, esa fragancia roja de
Guatemala, que vive en cada casa, que te espera en las oficinas
y en las cocinas, en los parques y en los bosques. Y an otros
Indeleble perfume. Dnde me llevas? Ignoras el ocano?
No, no ignoro el ocano. Pero soy tu cabellera, soy tu pena-

permanecimos dentro de las
Cuevas, tomando las direc-

tancias y dimensiones que nos
han permitido disear los

SITUACIN. Las Cuevas de Chi-

nocidas en la Comarca, se
encuentran situadas en el Dis-
trito de Panam, Provincia de
Panam, muy cerca de la Ca-
rretera Transistmlca Boyd-Rooee

m a Coln. A unos 20 metros
a oeste o Izquierda de esa mis-
ma direccin hay una casita de
madera, con el letrero "Se ven-
de Abono de guano", visible des-
de la Carretera, v situada cerca
de la entrada de las cuevas.
Las lomas bajo las cuales se
hallan forman parte de la pe-
quea^-cuenca hidrogrfica del
rio Chilibre. cuyas aguas aflu-
yen a] rio Chagres despus que

desde aouel alto de murclelagl-

Galera de entrada, ya descrita.

una rampa de murcielaguina y

yos lados presenta un saliente,

de cincuenta metros, en su eje
mayor Suroeste-noroeste, por
unos veinte v cinco en la parte
ms ancha de su eje menor. Su
altura es menor que la de la Sa-

pa Inclinada recubierta de es-
pessimos mantos de materia ex-
crementicia de murcilago, mur-
cielaguina o guano de murci-
lago, comenzado ya a explotar
como excelente abono, por el
Seor Sucre. Aunque su valor
econmico pueda ser mucho
mayor, esta parte de la cueva
presenta menores atractivos que
las Galeras y Pasadizos del Ni-
vel inferior v que la Sala de la

brante del Nicho de la Bruja.
Las relaciones de proximidad (a-
caso de continuacin) entre el
fondo de la Sala Grande y el
Nicho de la Bruja fueron cla-
ramente percibidas: las reso-
nancias de los golpes dados en
aquel fondo mostraban la inme-
diata proximidad de oquedades
que. si no hemos marrado mu-
cho, corresponden a la Bruja o
la Sala de la Virgen.

COLGANTES. Asi llamaramos
a. esta nueva galera, si hubi-
ramos de darle un nombre. Ms
larga que la anterior, sigue una
direccin predominante este-
oeste. 8us dimensiones son muy
parecidas a las de la primera
galera. Ms de setenta metros
de largo (hasta la Entrada del
Norte): de dos a cuatro de an-
cha: de ocho a diez de alta. Ya
hacia su extremo oeste presen-
ta como hecho significativo dos
colosales columnas colgantes: un
capricho ms de la erosin sub-
terrnea. 8igue a continuacin

ve a escaparse a nueva aven-

La Vaca. Y se desemboca al fin
en la Entrada Norte de este ni-

la rampa de subida se halla una
clarsima terca, concavidad cir-
cular de bordes escarpados. Unos
seis metros ms arriba y esta-

GRANDE. A falta de otro y pa-
ra entendernos, marcamos con
el nombre de Sala Grande a la
caverna natural que forma el si-
tado ms que presentar las par-
tes principales de las Cuevas de
Chilibre, en su disposicin y co-
locacin, como un limitado con-
junto que apenas sobrepasa, en
su eje mayor, de los cien me-
tros. Dimensin muy modesta

des cuevas del mundo: Carlsbad,
Mamoth, Lurla, Arta, Drach,
Maravillas, Altamira, Font-du-
Gaume... y tantas otras. _^

Al partir de las Cuevas co-
mentbamos, despus de los
momentos de sustos, resbalones
y caldas (las cuevas son siem-
pre peligrosas), que nuevos ha-
llazgos cabe presumir en este
pequeo karst panameo. Y
que son de desear no ya slo
como curiosidad intelectual, o
disfrute de turista, sino por que
las cuevas encierran un gran
valor econmico. La explotacin
del rico guano de murcilago
que ha iniciado el Sr. Sucre no
es ninguna utopia. Las cuevas
del este de Estados Unidos fue-
ron explotadas como fuente de
aprovisionamiento de nitratos
para elaboracin de explosivos
durnate la guerra de 1812 y la
tremenda guerra civil. Que otros
usos para la paz v la produc-
cin de vida sean el destino de
estos hallazgos, ya en las mis-
mas formaciones contiguas y en
el corto periodo de dos aos ha
encontrado el Ingeniero Sucre
depsitos inmensos de bellos
marmoles, de materiales para
elaborar excelente cal, kaoln,
manganeso... y ahora ese tur-
bio venero de nuestra vida que
es el guano. Adelante.
