A great moan went up from tlie massed worshippers as the botiy of Pietro Puglicri crashed on the Mosaic floor in front of the altar of confession. H was Ihe second suicide wilhin six months to desecrate the great church. Six months ago, an Unemployed youth shot himself to death before the main altar Puglieri climbed to the first Ida- gia inside the cupola of the grdat dome. He shed his overcoat and hurled it over the railing to warn the throng gathering for the first oration of the dedication of the church. Then he climbed the waist-high railings, paused for a moment while white-faced faithful below watched in horror, and jumped He uttered nol a, word. He cleared the bronze canopied altar over the tomb of St. Peter, before which Ihe marble 'statue of Pope Pius VI kneels in prayer, and crashed on the mosaic floor Ponlificinl gendarmes rushed to the spot while the faithful, including many newlywcds who customarily visit St. Peter's milled around. The blue-uniformed gendarmes covered the body with a white sheet and took it to the parish church of St. Anne, inside Vatican City. The great church of St, Peter's' had to be consecrated again because of the suicide. This was done at 2:30 p.m. by Mgr. Leon Grornier, one of the altar canons.

Campbell, president of the nontax Longshoremen's Association, said a study of the union's contract had convinced union officials they had no right to refuse to work diverted ships. Earlier, Campbell had made a distinction between "diverted" vessels and those which sailed direct to 'Halifax, insisting his men would handle only the latter. Halifax has become a boom port in the eight days of the walkout. Many transatlantic liners which ordinarily come to New York have (used the Canadian port. Their passengers were taken to and from New York by train. The walkout made new inroads on New York's economic life today with the laying off of 875 additional railroad workers. They were em- ployes of the Pennsylvania, Erie and Baltimore and Ohio . Marshall Plan officials in Washington estimated 140,000 tons of recovery supplies for Europe have piled up at Atlantic coast ports in f he strike.

DeGualle in New Bid for French Power* ^ Paris, Nov. 17 —(UP) — Gen. Charles De Gaulle, renewing his bid for the leadership of France, said today that the nation faced a complete political and economic collapse unless it threw out its middle of the road coalition gov- ermcnt. Nine clays after he scored a sweeping victory in elections to the upper chamber of parliament, DC Gaulle demanded general elections for the national assembly, the lower chamber in which the legislative power lies. The wartime leader of the anti- Nazi French sounded the alarm together wilh his new demands at a jammed press conference in the headquarters of his rally of the French people. The movement has no deputies as such in the national assembly, since it was not in existence when the last elections were held. Pledging his group not to join any coalition with the third force parties now threading a troubled way between the threat of communism on the extreme left and the demands of De Gaulle on the x- treme right, he also: 1. Accused the United States and Great Britain of restoring a German Reich which inevitably would ally itself with Russia for an attack on the West. 2. Attacked the Anglo-American decision to restore the Ruhr industries to German ownership — an infinitely grave decision for France." 3. Advocated restoration of the former Italian colonies to Italy. 4. Attacked the defense plans of the union of Western Europe insisting it would be "intolerable" for the defense of France to be entrusted to non-Frenchmen. 5. Proposed a new global strategy scheme by which France would be in charge of the European and North African theater, Britain would be in charge of the Middle East and East Africa, and the United States would be responsible for the: defense of the Far East and Pacific. 6. Hinted he probably would dissolve ad outlaw the Communist party if he rose to power. He urged the scrapping of the Western Union and North Atlantic defense plans, to be replaced by a world strategy board consisting of the president of the United States the prime minister of Great- Britain and the head of the French government, aided by their chief military advisors. "Any program for centering European defense plans in Britain must be a bad one," he said. From the French viewpoint such organization is unacceptable It is intolerable that the direction of the defense of France and the war effort of France should be in the hands of anyone but a Frenchman." De Gaulle charged the French government with "spinelessness" Thursday, November 18, 1948 Princess, Son Continue to Make Progress London, Nov. 17 (/p)—Princos=s Elizabeth spent an excellent ni^hl and she and her son "continu' to make good progress," her doctors reported today.

Professor Pleads Guilty to Sodomy Columbia, Mo., Nov. 17 — (#)— E. K. Johnson, former professor of advertising at the University of Missouri here, was placed on probation for four years under $2 000 bond after his pleas of guilty to charges of sodomy before Judge W. M. Dinwiddio in the Boone County Circuit court here today. Orders of the probation included Johnston's cessation of homosexual practices his posting of a $2,000 bond, his payment of court costs and his regular reports to Wayne Ballard, state probation officer Johnston was placed in jail pending arrangement of his bond. Johnston, who had been tree on bond since shortly after -.iis arrest last May, had pleaded not guilty on arraignment then. Brought to trial today, he changed his plea and asked probation. A long line of witnesses, including Dean Frank Luther Molt of the school of journalism and other faculty members, supported his plea lor clemency. Howard B. Lang, Jr., prosecuting attorney whose investigation for accepting the London agreement on Western Germany. The only possible settlement of the Ger- mvan problem, he said, would be the creation of a federation of German states which "would take part in any European union. Asked whether the United States might not withdraw Marshall plan aid if France refused to accept tho Anglo-American plans for Germany, DC Gaulle said: "We lived for. centuries without it. I have praised it, and probably it will bo useful, but on condition that it does not lead us to sacrifice the future of France and Europe." He spoke shortly before the assembly was resuming debate on government charges that the International Communist Information Bureau financed the French coal strike. Debate was broken off last night after Minister of jlnterior Jules Woch delivered a blistering attack against Communists, charging them with fermenting and financing the walkout of 350,000 coal diggers. Second Trial of McLaughlin Is fo Start Thursday Mt. Ida, Nov. 17 —(/f)—The sec- brought charges against Johnston and two others last May and -\ subsequent charge against Harry bonn of Hannibal, a veteran <,Ut dent, made a long statement ' to the court, detailing the investigation of homosexual activity on and off the campus here. Lang told the court the charge against Johnston was based upon an act with Sohn which was wit noshed by Willie Coots, a Columbia business man, who shared an apartment with Johnston. Coots is also on bond on a sodomy charge. ond trial of former Mayor Leo P. McLaughlin of Hot Spri igs is scheduled to open here tomorrow. Unless a possible defense motion for a continuance is granted, McLaughlin will go to trail on a charge of misuse of public funds. He is accused of authorizing payment of salary to his brother, George, as a police clerk. The state alleges George performed no duties. McLaughlin was acquitted a year ago of a bribery charge—another of the original 10 counts against him. Both the previous trial and Uic one opening tomorrow were transferred here on a change of venue. , The former mayor will be prosecuted by Arkansas' next governor, Prosecutor Sidney McMath. f.w^."'r'^^l^': 'r 'V:'-'--:': ':••••••: 'V:. 1 tV,V,'±S> > ii!i!,', There's real quality and dependable performance in this General Electric Washer—now available at a new low price to meet the most careful budget.
