U.S. Plane Shaken by Blast By DONALD DOANE Berlin Oct. 18 -ffl>>- A United States C-.TJ transport plane supplying blockaded Berlin was shaKen by a mysterious explosion today shortly alter taking off from Berlin s Gntow airport. .U. Raymond Miller of the 1250th air Iransport .squadron, the pilot said the piano was shaken severe! ly, but not from anti-aircralt fire It was f]yi, 1B ; ,t 1.700 feel. American and British officials said -i dynamite blast might have been the cause. "I heard an explosion two minutes after my takeoff, the concussion from which, severely shook my aircraft," Millers written report said. "I immediately looked out the window and saw' a large cloud of smoke coming from 'a small patch of woods. '1 observed no actual fire or ex-plosions in the air I called the Gatow tower and told them that I had been severely jarred by a .ground exploson.' ' U. S, and British officials, however, said they believed the plane was jolted by the concussion from a ground explosion which occurred so near Gatow airfield that it rattled windows. There was no indication, these officials said, that anti-aircraft guns were fired. The Russians gave no warnings of gun practice today in the air corridor used by British and American planes supplying blockaded Berlin. They did impose a sharp traffic inspection at occupation sector borders within the city, aimed at tightening the blockade. The Soviet authorities were asked for an explanation for the explosion. However, no explanation had been received. Lt. Co!. Beverly Steadman, senior U. S. air officer in Berlin, said "there is no indication the blast was caused by aliti-ahcraft fire." "The fact that the ground explosion occurred simultaneously (with the C-54 takeoff) leads us" to be- liovc that what the pilot felt was that explosion," he said. Steadman said he had no knowledge of a published report that American fighter planes have been i alerted because of flights by Rus- i sian and unidentified planes over .he U. S. zone of Germany.

SHIVER By JUDSON O'QUINN Salonika, Greece, Oct. 13 — (/?)— The Greek government says a top Communist killed George Polk correspondent for the Columbia Broadcasting System, last May. Topping off a five-month investigation of the slaying, the government yesterday named " three others charged with complicity in •the murder. Two of them are under arrest. One of the persons under arrest was quoted as believing the murder was planned by the Comin- :orm (Communist International lu- iprmation Bureau') to discredit the reck government abroad. The government said the actual shooting of Polk was done by Adam Mou?.enidcs, member of the central committee of the Greek Communist party. He was alleged to have shot the correspondent in the back of the head as Polk lay blindfolded and trussed in a boat in Salonika bay last May (1. The other three charged with complicity in the murder were Evangelos Vas-vanas, still at large; Gregory Staktopoulos. Communist newspaperman, and his mother, Anna, both under arrest for the past two months. All four faee charges of conspiracy to murder Polk. Moux- endes and Vasvanas also were charged with illegal possession of firearms and carrying arms, punishable by death under present Greek military law. The story of the murder, as told by the official announcement, was as follows: Polk, H-l-year-ohl \ va r veteran from Fort Worth. Tex., had expressed a desire to interview Markos Vafiades. Communist leader of the Greek rehels. Staktopoulos was assigned by the Comnuiiiisis as the "contact" man to lure Polk to a boat in Salonika bay on the pretext he was being taken to see Markos. Polk got into the boat with the three men. llis feet anil hands v.'ere tied and lie was blindfolded, ap- pari-ntly being told he was not to see the route taken or tin- interview. Moir/enkles shot Polls. He took Polk's identity card and a calendar from t)u> dead nrm's puck"!, and gave them to Slaktopoulos. who said hi- hail nut hecii told the murder had been iilanned. The body was thrown into Ihe ; water. H was nut found unlit May 11). SlakUipuulus had his mother mail 1'olk's identity card to police May 11.

Conant, president ol' Harvard University, in discussing the European crisis says he doubts if the Soviets will force the issue provided Britain, Franco and America arc lirm in holding just positions. Dr. Conant expresses this view in his new book, "Education in a Divided World." He says he isjnex'l few months. •'convinced that there is little or no; "However, I am bold enough to analogy between the Nazi menace j predict that, unlike Hitler, Russia and the Soviet challenge," and: will not take aggressive military continues: | action bv invading a nation with"The former, to my view, had to ; out an invitation from a dc Eaclo be met by force of arms because i government.

I doubt if many foreign affairs expeits in the dc,mociac.-ies will do jn-rdav -jlher than agree with Or. Conant. or that matier probably many So- 'iet observers will concur jj, '[heir jwn hearts, even it they don't sec it to say so. The. consensus of objective ob- orvers is that the Soviets don't vant war — at least not now. It's clear that the Communists intend' o push their offensive to the limit! — short of precipitating war. 1 Therefore if war should "develop out of the present situation it would bo by accident, so to speak, rather than by premeditation. However, there is one remote contingency which strikes me as almost certain to produce another 'U'med upheaval. That is n sweeping Muscovite success in commu- li'/.ing all Western Europe and the Far F/asl. Should such a tragedy Happen there is small doubt "tha't "capitalistic America"—bete noire of the Reds — would be attacked, in order to complete their conquest. That, of. course, is crossing n lot of ' bridges; which we aren't'likely lo be called upon to cross. The recent hardening of the policy of the Western powers cerlaiinly fits in with Dr. Conant's "pattern for presenting another global war." They recognucie that, the way to stop a bully is to stand up to him. They have no intention of letting the Bolshevists continue expansion by agression. although they are willing to negotiate any legitimate problem with Moscow.
