Speaker Raps U.S Trade with Russia Machine tools and oil are being being sent from this country to Russia which is the chief supplier supplier of North Vietnam's war supplies, Alan Stang, New York writer, told Kiwanis Club members at the Black Steer Thursday. Stang is author of a book, 'The Actor — The True Stcry of John Foster Dulles," and contributor contributor to the John Birch Society Society magazine, American Opinion, Opinion, published in Belmont, Mass; by the society's founder Robert Robert Welch. He was in Eau Claire as a guest of the Eau Claire County TRAIN Committee to speak at the Birch Street Labor Temple Thursday night on the subject, "Let's Stop Helping Communism." Communism." Birch Society founder Welch urged formation of TRAIN committees in his May, 1966 bulletin as front organizations organizations for the society. Supplies to Russia Slang's comments on supplies supplies going to Russia came during a question period after lis talk on street riots in Chicago Chicago during the Democratic par- ly convention last August. Stang ;old Kiwanians, "We are send- ng machine tools to Russia." These are more important than weapons or tanks, he said, because because a tank can be destroyed t machine tools can be used .0 turn out more tanks. He said Russia and Eastern European Communist satellites are getting oil from the United States. One hundred per cent of North Vietnam's Vietnam's oil is supplied by Russia, Russia, he added. Stang offered quotations from the Walker Crime Commission •eport which indicated radical youths had planned forceful con- rontation with the Chicago police months before the Dem- ocratic convention — even to planning the exact day upon which the main battle would take place. He also reported that J. Edgar Hoover, F. B. I. director, in February, 1968 well ahead of the convention had reported reported on plans for uprisings at the convention by radical youth groups including Students for a Democratic Society. Stang Gassed Twice Stang was on the scene on the streets of Chicago during the riots and was tear-gassed twice, he said, adding that in view of the provocation of police police forces he is happy he was not shot. What happened in Chicago is not only surprising, he said, it is dumbfounding exercise in police restraint. Despite t h e fact that police were pelted with rocks, bricks, lye, oven cleaner, balls with spikes and nails and blocks of soap with imbedded razor blades, no one was killed, he reported. Some elements of the press may have been attacked b e r cause police couldn't differentiate differentiate between reporters and "terrorists", "terrorists", he said. "I personally saw some mounds of human filth wearing C.B.S. credentials, you know, the Columbia Broad- thcasting System. They were filthier filthier than the yippies they were there to cover," Stang d e - clared. N.B.C. and Newsweek credentials were worn by two reporters who turned down Slang's photographer's offer of pictures of "revolutionaries" throwing things at police, he added. When questioned by the Rev. Daniel J O.'Reilly and the Rev. David Sharpe about his use of a privately - published copy ofj ihe Walker Commission report! Stang told Kiwanians the re port was "deliberately planned" to be misleading and confusing. "This is a very clever 1 i e which contains the truth in order order to cover the tracks of the people seeking to conceal it," he said. Nominating committee chairman chairman Pete Scarseth reported the following nominations for club office: Arnie Carlson, president; president; Jim Kleiner, first vice president; the Very Rev. Dean Gordon Brant, second vice president: John Gonsolley, treasurer; and Johannes Dahle, Art Klingler, Ken Merchant, Adoph Odland, Dave Owen, Jack Postlewaite, and Lloyd Zillmer, directors. ihs Daily Telegram *tl Eau Claire, Wisconsin *M Friday, May 2, 1969 State Murderer Seeks New Trial STEVENS POINT (AP) — A courl hearing is scheduled for today in the motion for a new trial for Mark Leroux, 20, who was convicted in January of 1968 of murdering his parents and burning down their rural Amherst home.
