Tucion, Arizona TUCSON, ARIZONA, MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 14, 1955 - SIXTEEN PAGES -Politics In Arizona M'Farland May Act In Legislative Stalemate By LESTER N. IXSKEEP Gov. Ernest W. McFarland who added a feather in his political cap last week by prompt action in attempting to settle the Tucson bus strike, may be called upon to use his influence in break Ins the deadlock between the Senate and House o the Arizona Legislature re garding the proposed new code of laws. Except for private conferences with some of the legislative lead ers, the Governor so far has re mained quiet since calling the Legislature into special session three weeks ago to adopt the new 5,142-page code. He has taken the position that once he turned the matter over to the lawmakers it Mas the Legislature's business, but is not likely to sit idly by and see the deadlock over procedure endanger the success of the session. Even when he does decide to Intervene, it probably will be done quietly insofar as his office is concerned. That has been his policy ever since he took over as Governor the first of the year. The Governor, being a lawyer and former Superior Court judge, is extremely anxious to have the new code adopted, hence can be expected to exert every effort to get it approved. A decision may be forthcoming loaay. The speech made in Phoenix last week by Sen. William F. Knowland (R-Calif.), Senate min ority leader, drew several Tucson partymembers, but there was a distinct lack of enthusiasm on the part of those with whom the writer talked in advance, of the meeting at which he spoke. Already skeptical because of the strong opposition Knowland has shown to the Central Arizona Project, many of the Republicans felt that his presence under party auspices would furnish lidded ammunition to the opposition. The Democrats had already taken advantage of the opportunity to criticize the Republicans for bringing Knowland to Arizona. First to loose a blast was Stephen W. Langmade, Democratic national committeeman. Another came Thursday, just a few hours before Knowland's scheduled appearance, from Charles L. Hardy, president of the Young Democratic Clubs of Arizona. "Senator (Barry) Goldwater and Representative (John J.) Rhodes, by their part in bring- Ing this dangerous opponent of the Central Arizona Froject in-to our state, at the very time when our water rase is in litigation, hare added another questionable chapter to their already negative record on Colorado River matters," Hardy said. Among those attending from Tucson were Timothy D. Park-man, chairman of the Pima County Republican Central Committee, and Mrs. Marion Sundt, vice-chairman of both the county and State Republican committees. Opposition is growing in Phoenix to the proposal that Tucson be given two important Republican political posts next year. Both Republican national committeeman and national committeewom- en currently .are held by residents of Fhoenix. State Rep. Robert Myers (Maricopa), a former state Republican chairman, believes, one of the positions should go to Tucson at the next convention, but that the other should be retained by Phoenix or Maricopa County. Admitting that the situation has been lopsided during the long incumbency of Clarence Budington Kelland and Mrs. Margaret Rockwell Adams, national committeeman and committee woman, respectively, (Continued on Tage 6A, Col. 4) 4 I I I I u O' Bud's Bonus Awaits Some Contestant .

Navy and Coast Guard, flaming vessel, the Searcher, converted World War II Liberty ship. ' Three injured sailors were tak en off the burning ship and were flown to New York City. One of them died on the way. The bodies of the other two were "completely carbonized," the Navy said. Two Navy tugs took the crippled ship in tow and were expected to reach the New York naval shipyard Monday afternoon. The two men who were burned beyond recognition were first listed as missing. Their identities later were determined by an all-hands muster aboard the Searcher. Positive identification would await autopsies. The floating "picket"' had been modified at the cost of $4,000,000.

Two seconds more and it . would bare been too late On Feb. 26, 1953, Smith became the first pilot to bail out of a plane traveling at supersonic speed and live. He lost consciousness and didn't come to again until five days later in a hospital. He was hospitalized six months. It has been estimated that Smith was subjected to a de-celerative force of 40 times the pull of gravity as his parachute snapped open. There was bleeding in all parts of the body as the 40 G's increased George's Ravage Ship miles off New York took injured two others.

Detective Lt. Clem Hoyt said Collins told him he began plan ning the operation with another convict in California s Folsom Prison, from which he "was leased last March. Hoyt said Collins admitted bringing 40 capsules of heroin across the International Border and was planning to return the shipment to Mexico because his Los Angeles contacts said the quality was poor. Los Angeles police notified Hoyt they had found the nar cotics in the garage of Collins' Los Angeles home, he said. Hoyt said this is the story Col lins told him: After Collins was released from prison he worked at shipyards in the Wilmington, Calif., area to earn enough monev for the Mexi can trip, and crossed the border Aug. 5. He posed as a New York doctor in Mexico City, made contact with a narcotics dealer, and telephoned his contacts in Los Angeles for $1,200 to close the deal. A meeting was arranged with a man Collins said he believes was an airline employe, and he got the money. Meanwhile, he enrolled in a language school run by a widow, whom he identified as Bertha Villa Cabiedes, who he said was a member of an established Mexican family. After a short courtship the two were married, on Sept. 24. Collins re-entered the United States at Laredo, Tex., Oct. 27, and said he had no trouble because of his bride's obviously high social position. In Los Angeles he contacted his ex-prison mate, whom police declined to identify, who told him to return to Mexico and get his money back. AVhen Collins approached Phoenix, he said, he telephoned a friend and asked him to send him some "vitamin pills" in his (Collins) garage. The friend took the pills to police, who analyzed them and notified officers here. Hoyt said he believes Collins suspected the car he was driving, was stolen and he left the heroin in Lbs Angeles to avoid carrying it across the state line. Hoyt said the car has since been identified as a stolen vehicle. When arrested Collins had 12 secanol tablets and a letter purportedly from a Texas jeweler saving a ring he wore was worth $20,000. Collins later admitted stealing letterhead stationery from the jeweler and typing the evaluation himself, Hoyt said, to aid his scheme for posing as a wealthy doctor. Collins' Mexican bride, surprised to learn his true identity, has returned home, officers said. n n b ver srse Out lected to put on his reinforced nylon flying suit and flight boots. He put his parachute and life vest on right over his sport shirt and slacks. Then with his helmet and oxygen mask he was ready to go. At 35,000 feet altitude over the ocean, the controls jammed. "I can remember," Smith says, "that the stick seemed to be moving very slowly away from me, the airplane nosing down accordingly. Thinking about it now, though, it doesn't seem possible that the stick would have been moving away. If it had just been frozen, which it was, maybe it would have psychologically felt as though it were moving away as 1 tried to pull it back." George ejected himself and the rush of air going by at nearly 800 m.p.h. made, he saitf, a tremendous noise like a continuous barrage of heavy guns. 'Mum) Feeling In Washington Affambum Believed Hilore oderate Than WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 UPh Diplomatic sources said Sunday the ouster of Provisional President Eduardo Lonardi of Argentina indicated a serious clash on national policies among the military men running the government. It was taken for granted here that military leaders had forced General Lonardi to resign and designated Gen. Pedro Aram-buru, 52, Army chief of staff as his successor. Lonardi's ouster came after military forces had given him an ultimatum to rid the government of what they termed "reactionary" elements. This was construed here to mean that the military men running the country thought Lonardi's policies had aggravated political strife in Argentina following the overthrow of Dictator Juan Peron less than two months ago. In addition Lonardi, accused by some military men of harsh policies toward pro-Peron military men, recently gave out a dismal picture of the nation's economic situation. He said that Peron's government had wrecked the country's economy, left the nation's dollar resources in chaos and that Argentina faced an era of austerity. ' Some military men in Argen- Ike Preparing For Trip To Gettysburg WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 ( President Eisenhower, reported feeling fine and rested, spent a quiet Sunday with his family while getting ready to take off around 10:30 a.m. Monday for sis more weeks of convalescence at his Gettysburg, Pa., farm. Sunday's schedule wound up with a pre-birthday dinner for Mrs. Eisenhower, who will be 59 Monday. This afternoon, the President spent over half an hour at the White House putting green. He took a couple of swings at the ball himself but spent most of the time in an easy chair coaching ' his son, Maj. John Eisen hower, who practiced chip and approach shots. Death Claims Martin Durkin At Age Of 61 WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 LP) Martin P. Durkin, a Democrat who served as President Eisenhower's first secretary of labor, died Sunday of a brain tumor. He was 61. Durkin, long-time head of the AFL Plumbers Union, stayed in the cabinet less than seven months, the shortest tenure of anyone who ever held the post. He quit after disagreement with the President's stand on changes in the Taft-Hartley labor law. The present secretary, James P. Mitchell, succeeded him. Durkin underwent brain surgery last fall and again this summer. He was first hospitalized after becoming ill at an annual AFL convention in Los Angeles. He remembers crouching forward involuntarily as one might react to a big gun exploding nearby. "I don't recall actually pulling the trigger . to eject the seat," Smith said. "The last thing I remember was the meter in front of my face reading faster than sound. The next thing was waking up in the hospital five days later." Luck played a big part that day for George Smith. It is believed he bailed oul at about 6,500 feet. In just two seconds more his parachute wouldn't have had time to open. Los Angeles Businessman Art Berkell, Attorney Mel Simon and the latter's 15-year-old son were fishing off the southern California coast on a day when it had been raining and most fishermen stayed at home. Berkell saw a geyser of white and foaming water shoot up about 200 yards aft of their fishing Was Nearly T Of Jet Diving At 8 is " iiiiimgBrtf H r OfL, Aan iii mm i, n Hi- m GEN. PEDRO ARAMBURU New Argentine Chief tina have been known here to feel that Lonardi's mass arrests of pro-Peron groups and his removal of Peronistas from high military posts had harmed the possibility of re-establishing unity in Argentina.

M. Molotov conferred two hours Sunday in what American officials called an informal and cordial atmosphere, but failed to resolve any of the out standing issues of the East-West conflict here. Molotov himself, speaking to reporters in .English, said - we had a good talk." He had requested the meeting and went to American headquarters to see Dulles. While American officials said a number of problems came up, most of the time was spent on discussing a deal whereby 18 new nations would be admitted to membership in the United Na tions. Among these are five Communist states, including Albania and Outer Mongolia. The United States has objected to admitting Albania and Outer Mongolia, although it is under stood to be ready to accept as U. N. members the three other Red satellites on the list Hungary, Rumania and Bulgaria. It was reported tonight Dulles made the American objections clear while Molotov maintained his position in support of those two states. Nevertheless, hope persisted in some western quarters that agreement on at least part of the list of 18 applicants for U. N. mem bership would be reached in a day or so. Clare Boothe Luce, U.S. ambassador to Italy, told correspondents here she had a hunch the problem would be re-; solved eventually. Speculation persisted here that some kind of agreement would be reached by the Big Four before the end of their current ses orn cruiser. Young Bob saw a limp figure floating from the end of a torn parachute. Berkell had been a navy air-sea rescue man in World War II. George Smith became his 276th rescue. The test pilot's shoes and socks were gone. His clothes were in ribbons. He was bleeding from cuts on his forehead, chin and feet. It appeared that a third of his parachute canopy was torn away in striking the water. His helmet and oxygen mask were gone. Smith was soon transferred to a Coast Guard cruiser and then to a hospital at Newport Beach. But no one had had any experience in treating a man unconscious from being shot into a brick-wall blast of air traveling faster than sound. Specialists called in included the Air Force's Lt. Col. John P. Stapp, who had submitted himself to Lonardi cies with somewhat more liberal leanings than Lonardi. He was one of the leaders of the Sept. 16 revolt which overthrew Peron. The State Department declined comment on the developments in Argentina, explaining it was an internal affair. Among Latin American observers in Washington there was speculation that Lonardi's ouster of Gen. Leon Vendoa as minister of the army during the past week may have caused Lonardi's downfall. It was reported here Vendoa had advocated a policy of moderation in. dealing with Peron's friends among the military forces while Lonardi had favored their outright removal. Some reports from Buenos Aires had described Vendoa as a man of great personal ambition. This led to talk here that a struggle for power among military men might be under way. Lonardi's job had been regarded from the outset as one of extreme difficulty because his top government officials actually represented a coalition of various elements among military and civilian leaders whose differences were considered certain to flare into trouble after the first few weeks of the new regime. sions Wednesday on holding another conference. There is a possibility, although the best informed officials considered it slight, that a decision might be made to hold another conference next spring. Another possibility, favored by some of the western delegation, was that the four ministers should leave the question of another conference open until they have reported to their chiefs and see what they want to do about it. Dulles will report to President Eisenhower as soon as possible after he returns to the United States late this week. Bernard De Voto Dies In New York NEW YORK, Nov. 13 W Bernard de Voto, writer, editor and Pulitzer prize-winning historian, died Sunday night at Presbyterian Hospital. De Voto, who won the 1947 Pulitzer prize in history for his book, "Across the Wide Missouri," was taken to the hospital after collapsing following a broadcast he made for the Columbia Broadcasting System. Since 1935 De Voto has been an editor of Harpers Magazine. He was also at one time editor of the Saturday Review of Literature.

Eduardo Lonardi as provisional president Sunday ap-parently for permitting rightists to influence his revolutionary government. Maj. Gen. Pedro Aramburu was named to succeed him. The Argentine state radio said Lonardi, who led the September revolution that overthrew Dictator Juan D. Peron, had resigned. But Lonardi sharply denied having tendered his resignation and a friend of his cabinet accused the armed forces of treason. "This has come about exclusively by the decision of certain members of the armed forces," the ousted chief executive said in a statement to newsmen. 'I wish to make it known to you that it is not true that I have tendered my resignation or Peron Expected Lonardi To Fall PANAMA, Nov. 13 W) Ex-Dictator Juan D. Peron said Sunday the new changes in Argentina's provisional government "were expected and will continue. "There will be others short ly," he declared through his secretary, Vittorio Redaglia. , Redaglia, who accompanied the ex-president on a flight from Paraguay to Panama earlier this month, said the switch in the presidency will not in the least change Peron's plan to remain in Panama, writing a book about his overthrow. that the state of mv health had anything to do with it." Gen. Juan Jose Uranw. trans port minister in Lonardi's government, told the newsmen the provisional president, ailing somewhat lately, was forced to quit by order of the Army, Navy and Air Force ministers. Aramburu fought alongside Lonardi in the September revolution. Immediately on being sworn in, he named a three-man junta to help him rule the country. The neW rulers declared in a communique beamed over the state radio late Sunday night the crisis stemmed from the presence of totalitarian-minded persons who had seized power in Lonardi's regime. The reshuffle followed Increasing tension within the fledgling government that took office seven weeks ago, after the overthrow of Juan D. Peron's 10-year-old dictatorship. Lonardi has been battling heavy economic and political cross-currents in his brief term of office. Aramburu. a snuare-iawiv a. reer officer, has been the army's chief of staff since Peron's downfall. He took the oath of office in the white salon of the Casa Rosada, the Dink" Erovernmpnt. house, at 5:40 p.m. The new chief executive told the Argentines Lonardi "ha"s returned to the armed forces the mission of giving a new govern ment to tne country." "Only one spirit promoted t.b movement of the revolution and that is the democratic sentiment of our people," Aramburu said. Lonardi ran into trouble trying to steer a middle course between his right wing supporters and those of more democratic views. But a communique broadcast by the state radio said the armed forces had decided to continue Lonardi vice president, Adm. Isaac Rojas, in office. Rojas had offered to resign. The new president's record does not show him to be an ardent revolutionary, but neither does it indicate any close relationship with the Peron regime. He was promoted from directorship of the national war school to army chief of staff after Peron's 'downfall. His succession to power was tabbed as a victory for the "pro-democratic" forces. .
