Rudolph, the Red-Nosed, at Man Kills Saenger Wednesday, Thursday 6~Month~0!d Daughter Wednesday, December 15, 1948 Working for , Union Again New York, Sec. 15 —(UP)— The makers of phonograph records began making the kind of music again today that union musician like to hear—the tinkling tune of royalties from every record sold dropping into the union's welfare fund. The argument over a royalty from record sales was settled with pomp and ceremony in the signing late yesterday of a new five- year contract between the record makers and James C. Petrillo's American Federation of Musicians. But the lifting of the union's ban on members making recordings won t mean much to the public there's not going to be any rush to turn out new tunes, no demand on Tin-Pan Alley for new hits, thc manufacturers said i on re going to keep on hearing those revivals from long ago t Manufacturers are going along •cautiously," they announced, with what (ho industry calls "standards." That means old time tunes with proven public appeal . Major manufacturears had artists and technicans alerted to .-'st new '-on. contract as soon RCA-Victor lined up a '"'million dollar chorus" from the Metropolitan opera, led by Petrillo to make a special recording of "I'm Just Wild About Harry" for Pres' dent Truman. At the conclusion of the sona. Petrillo recorded a greeting for the president in which he said"Mr. President, it is a pleasure and privilege to extend to you on behalf of 237,000 AFM musicians the season's greetings, there is no one to whom we would ivsttipr help dedicate this first recording oM948 than to you, a fellow musician and a great president.

St. Louis, Doc. 15 — (m — Plovd Rollings, 37-year-old St. Louis u'ni versuy dental student, intended to kill his entire family after ho hacked his baby daughter to death , with a hatchet yesterday, Sheriff Arthur Mosley said Rollings told him. Rollings is held without charge for an inquest today. "I couldn't sleep last night and got the hatchet from the basement intending to wipe out the family," he was quoted as saying. "The baby was not the cause "of the trouble. She was a good baby. I can't give any reason for what I did. I was worried about school and the children and I didn't know what would become of them. I'm just nervous, always afraid of the future." Rollings said he was an ensign in the navy and suffered a nervous breakdown in 1945. He spent four months in a Washington D. C.. hospital. He said his $230 monthly income includes $135 as disability payments from the government. He told Sheriff's Deputy Jacob Preiffer that after he struck his 6- mpnth-old daughter, Donna Anne, with thc hatchet he waited outside his house for the officers and lost his nerve and forgot his intentions to kill the others. He said ho planned to end his life in the Mis- sippi river. The slaying occurred while Rollings' wife, Dorothy Jean, 2fi,' was at a neighbor's telephone with their 2-year-old daughter, Mary Rebecca, trying to call his parents', Mr, and Mrs. Francis E - --• of Athens, 111. Mrs. Rollings told officers her husband has been nervous and uneasy in recent weeks and that she had urged him to drop his school work temporarily.

Perhaps Mr. Bevin wouldn't speak so bluntly as to state the case in terms of 'two worlds " when the hopes of peace-minded people center on "one world." However, the implication is there and you can't evade it any more than you could dodge an', earthquake.

He added: "I am quite sure that before many years — I make this prophesy — you will find the defense ministers and finance ministers of the Western world sitting down dis- cuSsing-a" common budget,-' tom- mon cost, and a common method ol defense." Bevin might have gone on to point out that this epochal dcvel opment has been forced by Moscow's creation of a great Bolshe vist bloc which constitutes another world that is engaged in a cold war agains tthe Democratic bloe. These blocs are the nuclei of the two worlds which are devefopin" ranidly. This wretched situation naturally raises the question of how our new peace organization fits into the picture. Of this Bevin remarked succinctly: "The United Nations is giving us very grave concern as to" whether it is going to face up to "Tave problems at all." Well what can we expect'' .fust as the world is divided into two blocs, so the U. N. is a house divided against itself. While the i noconl world remains divided, the U. N. I Charges will be divided and incapable of facing up "to grave problems at all" as a unit. The position of the U. N. is well illustrated by the current fight over the Declaration of Human Rights which finally has been completed after two and a half years ol: labor. Naturally the Communist bloe is against the declaration, which is supported by all the democracies. The Reds are against it because the only human right they believe in is that of becoming a cog in the totalitarian machine.' If the peace body can't agree on a Declaration of Human Rights, what in the name of common sense can they agree on? The answer is "nothing."

New York, Dec. 15 — f/P) — The final dav's sessions of the current spy-hunting federal grand iury began today with the calling of a new witness accused of being a member of a pre-war Communist underground in Washington. A new jury will take over the in- -vestigation tomorrow. The new .witness is Gcorsc Silverman. one-time air force em ployo. Miss Elizabeth Bentley confessed Soviet agent, testified last July before the House Un- American Activities committee that ho supplied her with information on government secrels. There was a last-minute spurt of activity around the jury's quarters in the federal building. The present 'body winds up its IB-month esnionage probe at midnight. There still was no hint of an answer to the vital question about the current .jury's wind-up day— whether it would return any indictments after its long sifting of a mass of accusations and denials. The two most important witnesses in the inciuiry — Whittaker Chambers and Alger Hiss— were isted for still another appearance bciore the jurors today. Chambers, admitted former Communist courier, has accused Hiss, one-time state department of- iicial, of suoplying important documents for delivery to Russia Hiss has denied it. Another witness to bo heard today is Isaac Don Levine, write;who has said that Chambers lone ago confided in him his story of Communist spying in Washington Silverman, who testified before *no house committee in reply to Miss Bentley, declared he was in- and characterized her .... as "incredible slanders."
