VOLUME XXXI —NO. 236 MOUNT VERNON, ILLINOI — FRIDAY, JULY 6, 1951 25c PER WEEK BY CARRIER SAFE CONDUCT FOR TRUCE EMISSARIES MILLIONAIRE RED JAILED IN CONTEMPT Frederick Vanderbilt Field Led to Cell While Waiting Result of U. S. Court Appeal. REFUSES TO NAME REDS' BONDSMEN Bar Parole to Leftist Who Withholds Names of Men Wanted to Trace Missing Reds. RED MILLIONAIRE f By Associated Press ; NEW YORK, July 6 — Millionaire Leftist Frederick Vanderbilt Field was jailed today for contempt of court in refusing to tell who posted §80,000 bail for four fugitive Communist leaders. The federal court sentence was for 90 days or until the "angel" of left-wing causes purges himself of contempt by revealing the names. Deputy United States Marshals I led Field from the courtroom to • a detention cell. Federal Judge Sylvester J. Ryan rejected a defense plea to continue the secertary of the civil rights congress bail fund on parole until his appeal is heard this afternoon in New Haven, Conn.

The four missing leaders, who jumped bail earlier this week, are the object of a nation-wide FBI hunt in which the public has been asked to join. In refusing to continue Field on parole pending the appeal hearing, Ryan said that to so would be to recognize that "a substantial question of law or fact existed in this case." Field had been on parole since being judged in contempt yesterday. Ryan said he had permitted Field freedom overnight on the theory that "a night's sober reflection might bring the desire on the part of this man to give the court the information that it seeks." Need Names In Mini hunt * Ryan has held that identities of the bail contributors are needed to help trace the missing men. The missing men are Henry Winston, the party's national chairman; Gus Hall, national secretary; Robert Thompson, New York state chairman, and Gilbert Green, Illinois chairman. They were among the 11 Communist leaders convicted of advocating violent overthrow of the United States government. # Ryan ordered the $80,000 bail for the four forfeited 24 hours after they failed to appear last Monday with their seven comrades to start serving their prison terms. The other seven surrendered and were taken from the federal house of detention here today in a gaurded bus to serve their terms in the federal prison at Lewisburg, Pa.

Six Former Radio Magnate Found Dead in Hotel RESPECTABLE RANCHER FOUND TO BE CONVICT Arrest for Drinking Results in Clarence Cahall Being Sent Back From Texas to Serve Out Term at Menard, III., Prison for 1932 Holdup. Escaped in 1937. By Associated Press TOKYO, July 6 — A Marine transport plane today catapulted 19 bewildered, Rip Van Winkle Japanese soldiers from the middle of the Pacific War into post-war Japan. Last Saturday they surrendered to the U. S. Navy. They had held out on tiny Anatahan Island in the Marianas for nearly six years after the war ended. They had insisted the war still was going on. A six and a half hour trip from Guam brought the Japanese soldiers to Haneda Airport outside Tokyo. All but two had their hair close- cropped, in the style of the old Japanese Imperial Army. One of them, a white-haired man, spoke in a broken voice into a microphone and told of their lives on the island. The others huddled together in sheep-like silence. They seemed still constricted between the freedom of civilian life and the ingrained discipline of Army life. All seemed healthy, tanned to a dark brown, except one man who leaned on the shoulder of another. Questioned on their feelings about reaching Japan, they replied "happy." A soft flame kindled in their eyes as they an swered. Th men will spend the night in Yokohama ina repatriation dormitory and will be released in the morning. Soldiers In Daz,e A number of relatives were at the airport, some crying and some smiling. Their frantic attempts to attract the notice of those in the Rip Van Winkle group failed to bring the Japanese soldiers out of their daze.

The car, a 1950 model (Mercury), carried no state license plate. Police said the man had been seen here several times in recent weeks. By Associated Press CHICAGO, July 6.—William C. Grunow, 5S, who made and lost a fortune as a pioneer maker of radios, was found dead early today in a 24th floor room of the Stevens Hotel. Grunow's body, nude except for a towel draped across the waist, was found lying on the bathroom floor by Dr. Richard P. Ariagno, hotel physician. Unidentified Woman The doctor said he was summoned after an unidentified woman telephoned the hotel switchboard and r-eported: "A man is having a heart attack in room 2405." Dr. Ariagno said the door to the room was open when he arrived shortly after midnight. He said the unknown caller had left. The doctor said he found a bruise on the back of Grunow's head, apparently suffered when he collapsed. A washcloth fjad been placed under Grunow's head. Grunow's widow, Valborg, contracted at her home on Route 1, Lake Geneva, said her husband suffered a heart attack two years ago and had been under a doctor's care since that time. Grunow's career began in Chicago in the 1920's when he went to work as an accountant for an electric appliance company organized by B. J. Grigsby.

In 1948 he gave $50,000 to establish the Lois Grunow Surgical Research Fund at Northwestern University, Evanslon, 111. BANK CALLS ISSUED By Associated Press WASHINGTON, July 6.--The comproller of \hc currency today ksued a csfl for a statement of tne condition of all National banks at the close of business June 30. By Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, 111., July 6. — State Auditor Benjamin O. Cooper today issued a call for a report on condition of all Illinois State banks &s of close of business June 30. By Associated Press CHESTER, 111., July 6.-9 man who found a new life and respectability in Texas was back behind prison bars today all because' of some drinking. Records of Menard penitentiary in Chester list him as Clarence Cahall, holdup man. But neighbors back in Kerrville, Tex., knew him as Allan Baker, rancher. Baker, the rancher, was arrested June 24 on an intoxication charge. As a matter of routine his finger-, prints were sent to the Texas Department of Public Safety. There officials discovered Baker was really Cahall, who escaped from Menard prison in 1937. Cahall was returned to prison on July 3 to serve out the one to 20 year term he began in 1932 at the age of 27. In Springfield officials of the state Division of Correction said Cahall, his family or his friends had made no appeal to Illinois authorities as yet to take cognizance of his life in Texas and grant him a pardon or parole. "I've tried to live as clear a life as I could," Cahall said when arrested in Texas. He said he knew that someday his past would be found out and that he long'dreaded that day. "I'd like to come back and be with my wife if she still is alive when I get-out," Cahall added. Drove Holdup Car Cahall said he was born in Joplin, Mo., and was reared in Oklahoma and Texas. In October,'1932 he said, he drove a car for two men convicted of holding up a family in their home at Jacksonville, 111. He was sent to prison. After his escape he went to Texas and served during World War Two with the Seabees in the Pacific. After the war he married a well-to-do-ranch owner in Kerrville. They settled down on the ranch and enjoyed the friendship and respect of the community. Warden Browning Robinson said Cahall's sentence would not be extended because of his escape. He said the escape occurred before passage of an Illinois law making prison breaking a felony. Otteson Free On $10,000 Bond By Associated Press BENTON, 111., July 6.— W. J.

The appointment was announced yesterday after Youngdahl, a GOP leader in the midwest, emerged from Mr. Truman's office with Democratic Senator Humphrey of Minnesota. Senator Wiley R-Wis.), ranking GOP member of the Senate Judiciary Committee who frequently had criticized Democratic presidents for nominating so few Republicans as Federal Judges, told a reporter later that he had no comment at this time.. Chairman McCarran (D-Nev) of the Senate Jucicrary Committee which must pass upon the nomination before the Senate considers confirmation, said: "It will be handled in the regular way." The White House confirmed the appointment some 45 minutes after Humphrey and Youngdahl told reporters it had been made. The actual nomination papers were not sent to the Senate until today. Truman's Idea . Youngdahl arid Humphrey held a joint press conference in Humphrey's office late yesterday. Re- portei-s' questions brought these responses: 1.—President Truman originated the idea of Youngdahl's appointment to the Federal bench and then asked Humphrey to invite the Republican Governor here for a conference. 2.—Youngdahl said he had not authorized published reports that he might seek a fourth two-year term as Goverenor next year and then oppose Humphrey's re-election to the Senate in 1954. 3. —Humphrey brushed off a question as to the possibility that he might run for Governor of Minnesota next year with: "Who planted that one?" 4. —Youngdahl said he had not consulted state or national Republican party colleagues including Senator Thye R-Minn.), whom he succeeded as governor, or Lt. Gov. C. Elmer Anderson, slated to succeed Youngdal. Qualified, Says Thye Thye's office aides telephoned to Minnesota to tell him the news. He authorized this comment: "Governor Youngdahl is qualified for any Judicial appointment that is offered to him." Youngdahl said he had resigned from the Minnesota Supreme Court to run for Governor and now wanted to step back to the bench frpm "the active political field." He headed the Minnesota delegation to the last Republican presidential nominating convention. He said he was making the decision and announcement of his new appointment now to give Republicans time to make their plans for his successor. If Youngdahl's nomination is confirmed by the Senate he will fill the District of Columbia judgeship made vacant by the recent death of Judge T. Alan Goldsborough, a former Maryland Representative in Congress. A Federal District judge is appointed for life and the salary is $15,000 a year. As Governor, Youngdahl's salary recently was increased from $12,000 to $15,000 a year. Youngdahl said he would not resign as Governor until confirmed for the judgeship and even then not before Sept. 1. He planned to fly back to Minnesota today. Five-Day Forecast U.N.

JL Communist commanders today gave final approval to arrangements for preliminary cease-fire talks—five hours before their emissaries were scheduled to leave for Kaesong. _ In a midnight message, the top Red Generals acknowledged the United Nations guarantee of safe conduct for their emissaries. The Allies already were putting the pledge into effect when the Red Pyongyang radio broadcast the eighth message in the series of radio negotiations. U. N. war planes were ordered to keep away from the highway down which Communist negotiators will travel today for cease-fire preliminary talks in Kaesong. Lt. Gen. O. "P. Weyland, Far East Air Forces commander, is? sued "the order a fe^w hours after 1 opposing commanders completed , a^hgSSiieivts byraai^fpf a* Sun- pday meeting—and guaranteed safe conduct to the emissaries. /•' Reds Leave IP. M. Today The Communist delegation leaves Pyongyang, the Red Korean capital, at 5 a. m. Saturday (1 p. m. CST today.) The Communist convoy will fly white flags as it travels down the bomb-pocked Pyongyang-Sariwpn- Namchorigjom highway to Kae-. song, three miles south of parallel 38. General Weyland ordered his war planes to make no attacks along the route after 4 a. m. Saturday (12 noon CST Friday.) The order carried out the pledge of safe conduct made earlier in the day by Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, U. N. commander. And it banned Allied bombers from one of their favorite .targets. The high, way is a main Red supply artery to the western front. It has been under almost constant attack for months. Bomb's have cratered it badly. And it is liberally' seeded with tetrahedrons —sharp, four-pointed cast iron devices for puncturing tires. J Bombers and fighters also were ordered to make no attacks within a five mile radius of Kaesong once any Red delegatiory reaches i$. This carried out another pledge Ridgway made when.he completed final arrangements for a meeting of three U. N. officers with three Red emissaries in the no-man's^ land city. ^ The two delegations meet Sunday to arrange for" a cease-fire session scheduled to start in Kae­ song Tuesday. War Goes On The shooting will continue until an agreement is reached at the second meeting, and approved. Air scouts spotted half a dozen people in Kaesong today but couldn't tell whether they were Reds, Allies or civilians. A U. N, patrol headed for the city for the third successive day while engineers swept mines from the "peace road" the U. N. delegation will travel if it goes by jeep. Forty-four U. S. planes blasted a Red stronghold on the western' front 20 miles, northeast of Kae s song. It was one of three mass air strikes 'Friday. The others were by American jets on two Red air fields. One is 40 miles north of Pyongyang and the other 40 miles southeast of the Red Korean capital. Allies Enter Pyongyang Without firing a shot—or being shot at—an armored U. N. patrol rumbled up the western side of the "Iron Triangle" to its tip and entered Pyongyang, 95 mile* *>utheast of Pyongyang. But another tank-led patrol was stopped by heavy fire on the east side of the triangle six miles from Pyongyang. East of the triangle Reds hurled three small counterattacks at V* N. lines and engaged in periodic ; artillery exchanges. A single Communist plane ush* ered in Friday's fighting. It dropped a few small bombs near Allied; positions on the western front»about 30 miles from K«e«on.
