# FRIDAY, JULY 6, 1951 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS Dewey Warns Against Peace By Surrender 0 By Associated Press TOKYO, July 6.— Tomas E. Dewoy said today the United States is dedicated to making world peace inevitable but cautioned the free nations against "peace by surrender or appeasement." The New York Republican governor made no direct reference to the Korean cease-fire talks scheduled to begin Sunday. He spoke before the America- ftfapan Society, composed of prominent Americans in Japan and Japanese business and govern- leaders. The speech was broadcast in the U. S. The United States, he said, is not afraid of internal and external communist aggression and has not "the slightest doubt of the final outcome." Likewise, Dewey added, the U. S. is unafraid of the "continuing threat of warlike communist ag- • gression" because of America's tremendous industrial might. The twice-defeated Republican presidential nominee declared "neutralism is an illusion from which only the harsh reality of defeat and' slavery can result." He said the free nations "with unitv and development of overwhelming strength" can "look forward to the gradual exhaustion and disintegration of the communist forces of slavery and ag- ^gression."

Edward M. «Almond has been awarded the Oak Leaf cluster to the Distinguished Service Cross for extraordinary heroism and leadership of his U. S. Tenth Corps in Korea. The general was citeu for his actions from May 16 to 25 when his corps halted an attack by three communist armies. Among "countless acts of individual heroism" cited were six flights Almond made in an unarmed plane to or over the front. On May 19 he turned his plane over to a tank platoon leader, joined the tank column and directed tank fire which silenced a Red machinegun firing on the tank beside which he crouched. Two days later, while reconnoitering for tanks, he flew through intense automatic weapons fire to locate Red guns "and personally directed their destruction." The same day the general flew four times through a Red-held mountain pass, through communist small arms fire and U. N. artillery fire. The citation said such acts as these "provided the inspiration and forceful leadership essential at this critical time." Almond won the DSC in the Inchon landing last fall. me that normal and reasonable expenditures for advertising will remain deductible as a business cost." 27 Children Die In Ship Tragedy By Associated Press BERLIN, July 6.— East German authorities today announced they have found the bodies of two more children drowned in the explosion of a small ship yesterday on the Spree river, raising the official death toll to 27. East Berlin people's police at the same time ordered the seizure of all gasoline-engines and a critical inspection of all other river craft in the Soviet sector.
