Modest nodded. "Perhaps the commandant has more to say" "He better have!" Crotch made a gesture to his mate who was climbing down from the texas deck. When Ben Goss movod closer he warned him to allow no one aboard who had not already paid his passage. Goss was a bushy-bearded virile man v/hose mind, once made up, could not be easily altered. When Crotch went over the gangplank with Modest he was leaving the General Heath in capable hands. At the outset the Federal government had forsaken them by withdrawing Iroops from the isolated p.osts. To make matters \vorge, the blundering policy of tha y before Us recall had driven the Apaches on the warpath. Second Lieutenant George Ba-3- com, a short-haired boy from the East, believed Apaches responded cnly to fear. Accordingly, he had induced Cochise, the friendly Chi- licahuu chieftain, into his Sitaley tent under a flag of truce. Naively he announced that Cochise, and members of his family who had entered in a spirit of friendliness with him, were now prisoners. Co- cbjse reacted exactly as an Indian should; he escaped from the trap, but his relatives were not so fortunate: and Bascom had put his foolish theories to test on these people. But this treacherous move set the Apachos to butchering whites in the fiercest war the territory had yet seen. the year that Mrs. Doss admitted killing Harrelson.

The International Atomic Agency proposed by the President has not yet been established, but the AEC already is launching "several supporting projects" of which the training program is the first. The commission will conducl ; a special four-week crurse in radioisotope (tracer atom- techniques, starting May 2 at Oak RjdgR, Tcnn., for 32 pcientis-ts from friendly foreign countries.

The need was increasing After the s-pecial program in May, a limited number of other qualified foreign scientists .will be admitted to regular sersions of the Oak Ridge training course which was started in 1948. "The purpose o.? the Oak Ridge course," the AEC said, "w to permit qualified research workers and technicians to gain sufficient facility in the use of radioisoiopes, or (racer atoms, to apply this important technique in ihefr own work, "Radioisoiopes are considered one of the most versatile and efficient research tcols inasmuch as they enable scientists to ch.irt the course of individual elements in complicated chemical and biological processes. "During the four weeks' intensive training, basic fundamentals in radiolsotope u«e are taught. Participants learn how to use and calibrate radiation detection inslru- ments, how to purify and separate radioactive materials from inert Or other radioactive materials, and how to apply them to a variety of chemical and bio.'ogical research problems."

Oklahoma City police say they now believe that a "school" for prostitutes recruited by a four-state vine ring operated at Little Rock, Ark., instead of Fort Smith, Ark., as first reported. Detective Bill Mead and Jim Reading said last night that five young women picked up in a drive against the white slave ring had told of attending the school. At Little -Rock, Night Chief of Police Gene Smith termed he report "fantastic." ."We've never heard of any such thing around here," raid Smith. "If the Oklahoma City officers iave any such'information about it, ,ve'd appreciate it if they'd sent it over to us." The vice ring was uncovered in Oklahoma City after the arrest of Billy Peltier, manager of a hotel here, on a charge of transporting a 19-year-old girl from Fort Smith to Oklahoma City for immoral purposes. The Oklahoma City detectives said the ring has operated on a circuit of major cities in this area, including Little Rock, Fort Smith, Kansas City, Wichita, Tulsa, Fort Worth. Dallas and Houston. At first the officers : sii'ld they learned that young prostitutes were trained at Fort Smith before going en the call girl circuit. However, treaty of war and aggression." The broadcast, monitored in Tokyo by United Press, was Ihe latest and strongest in a series of threats made against the U.

Much of Chou's statement today was a repetition of earlier tirades against the United States, but his language was getting poticebbly stronger. 'The United States government, disregarciing the repeated, protests end warnings of the Chinese peo pie, concluded Dec. 2 a so-called mutual security treaty with the traitorous Chiang Kai-shek clique fugitives on Taiwan (Formosa)," Clipu said.
