Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn This Guy Has No Sense of Humor The editor gels downtown late this irnmgy morning, opens up his mai land i'inds a letter that would ruin even a good day. It's from Emniet, but I'll draw the cloak oi Christian charily over the writer's name, and one paragraph of the epistle will give you his Irame ot mind: "Dear ICdiior: This juvenile delinquency that is sweeping our land is the reward that Satan the devil is paying the people for teaching the youth ol our land these Christina.-; Santa Claus and Easter Bunny lies—lor Iliere are no bigger lies than these." I could say several things. I could say that two generations ago ;> little girl wrote a famous New York newspaper and asked the editor lo say it wasn't so—what they were saying about Santa Claus. And the editor assured her: Yes. Virginia, there is a Santa Clans. You can't prove there isn't. And why try?

Dec. 14 —(/P) — Peiping was isolated today, with Communist armies almost knocking at her walls. Authorities closed the south air field, last air link with the outside world. Peiping's west field was closed y c s t e r d a y. Nationalist ground troops were reported looting the west field today. Passenger traffic was halted on Ihe Peiping-Ticntsin railway, only land link with the outside the Communists do not control. This action was taken because of troop movements. Closing of Peiping's two air fields was not so simply explained. Well placed quarters said Gen. Chow Jib Jou, head of the Chinese air force, ordered the air force to withdraw without consulting Gen. Fu Tso-yqi, Nationalist commander on the northern fronts. (Associated Press Correspondents elsewhere reported 105 Nationalist planes from Peiping arrived at Tsingtao, U.

This theory of the cause was advanced by the prison system's general manager. O. B.

Dec. 14 — (UrM -- The Japanese diet voted today to demand the resignation of Premier Shigeru Yoshida because of amorous advances Finance Minister Sanroku Izumiyama made to two women diet members while intoxicated from saki wine. Mrs. Halsuye Yamashita set off an uproar in the diet when she accused Ixumiyama of cmbarrasing her in the house restaurant yester day evening. His other accuser was Mrs. Toshi Matsuo. As a result of the charges, I/.umiyama resigned his cabinet post and his position as a diet member. A special diet committee had been appointed by that lime to oust him from his official posts. Izumiyama offered no defense for his action. But, he said, his wife had promised to remain by his side despite Ihe women's ac- cusalions.

There was doubt whether many of the post-ban recordings would find their way to store shelves in time for Christmas trade.

The union refused to make further recordings until a plan could be worked out for the benefit of musicians who Petrillo said were thrown out of work by "mechanical competition" of records used on the radio and in coin-operated phonographs. While the ban kept top American bands and instrumentalists from making new recordings, some new recordings have been made overseas and in Mexico and some in this country with local backgrounds. Trade sources also reported that some members of Petrillo's union secretly made recordings under assumed names during the ban. minister came into the room and I/iumiyama drank with him.

Asserting there was "no rcnson for the insult," Mrs. Yam.ashita said, she and the other 14 women diet members stood up for election particularly 'to protect the nation's women against such men like Iqumiyama." She denied reports that she herself was intoxicated. Mrs. Matsuo, the other victim, told reporters that I/umiyama grabbed her hand. She added she did not want to make an issue out of it.
