PRICE ScCQPY Hoover Group Would Shske Up Defense Pian coolie is worth 9 fcssor. The hopelessness of China' By ELTON C. FAY Washington, Dec. 16 — (/P) •This present position is that the final effect of her ancient philosophy is not only to produce misery for her people but to make it impossible for her rich Western friend, the United States, to give effsciive help. For when we attempt to send dollars to China we find there; is no one over there acting for the whole country, and the machinery that we designed to be used by men is turned over to the untatcnted « hands of slaves. People who believe attract learning i.s tho be-all and end-all I of human life, and who look down on physical labor, politics and national defense, not only have sold themselves down the river to a state of eternal misery but have made it positively dangerous for any other nation to proclaim :isc;f their friend. China's tragedy is the most ancient on this earth. But about this latest chapter I am a little optim- . istic. For this time poetic justice b'has caught up with the true villain of the Celestial piece — the professor. They have taken his head down out of the clouds and rammed it into the mud. The humble coolie steps across that prostrate figure as he goes about the land performing the useful work of supplying humanity's everyday needs. country's national defense system is "enormously" costly and its machinery needs overhauling, a Hoover commission "task force" reported today. . A 211-page critique said the uni- (fied military establishment set up by law last year "is, on the whole, soundly constructed, but is not yet working well." A 14-member advisory committee to tho commission on organization of the executive branch of the government, headed by former President Herbert Hoover, cautioned that Russian strategy may be to keep American defense costs mounting in an effort to gain "victory by bankruptcy." The committee recommended this six-point program to hold dol- bounds and improve the operations of tha security setup: 1. Give the secretary of defense more direct control over the three armed forces because his present "difficulties lie in vague author- Gasoline Tax Not Favored by Council Little Rock, Dec. 16 —(/F)—Here's good news for you motorists: The Arkansas legislative council does not want you to dig down for another penny every time you buy a gallon of gasoline. A proposed bill to make subject to sales tax items now exempt was drafted by the council this week. It has been reported that the bill would include gasoline as one of the items which would be removed from the exemption list. The final draft of the bill, however, leaves gasoline exempt from sales tax. The council recommended that sales tax be applicable to cigarettes and whisky. Arctic Biizzard Delays Rescue of i.

Even as it is, tho coup in Caracas is not a matter for indifference. It seems, alas, that the United States government .:jt'. cannot be indifferent to any political changes in this troubled world. Once upon a time South American revolutions were something of a joke up here, but no more. The idea that they were in a class with comic operas has long since vanished. Or at least it should have. Uprisings by the left or the right are of equal concern. A rightist revolution not only hurts the cause of free government in the western hemisphere. It also draws support to the extreme left. * The Venezuelan government headed by the distinguished novelist Romulo Gallcgos was a sort of pilot plant of U. S.-style democracy in South America. That government was also the outgrowth of revolution. But it promised a free, liberal, representative administration. And apparently it delivered. Mr. Gallegos was the first nonmilitary man ever to head Venezuela's government . He was the first man elected president by the free choice of the people. Yet he «>' lasted less than a year. The military group that overthrew him claims to have acted to save "democratic principles." One of President Gallegos' principal sins seems to have been that he did not choose a coalition cabinet. This would be like deposing President Truman because he did not appoint any Republicans to his Cabinet. The military junta claims to have acted in the name of democracy— that much abused word. But it is interesting to note that immedi- ' ately following the coup, the leader of the unsuccessful, rightist-inspir- r-n revolution of Hl4(i returned to Venezuela from cxilo. The junta has promised democratic elections and a retirement of the military from government. But in the meantime it has suspended a number of civil rights having to do with "the inviola- Contiimcd on Page Five Perhaps the Greatest Love Story Is Living -That of Madam, Chiang Kai-Shek n tlf By DeVVITT MacKENZIE AP ForelSn Affairs Analyst Year ago while visiting in the nome of the late Anthony Hope I asked the famous but then aging romanticist whether he was writ ng another novel, and he replied with a wistfull smile: "No. Romance comes easier when one is young." As <t generalization that like is so. Still, truth is stranger than fie lion, and not even in his heyday, when he dreamed such tales as "The Prisoner of Zenda", could Sir Anthony have produced any thing ^surpassing the reallife drama being enacted by one of his story's most notable couples —the no longer youthful Chiang Kai shocks. There is a great love story. Over in China Generalissimo Chiang Kaishek is fighting with back to wall to stave off disaster at the hands of the Chinese Com munist rebels. The fate of his gov ernment—of China itself — is stake. So is the personal fate this dynamic personality who for a score of years has guided his country through the viscissitudes of civil and internatlional war. During that long time Chiang's constant help and inspiration has been his brilliant, American-educated wife, whose genius has made her one of the most remarkable China Reports on War Are Conflicting Nanking, Dec. 16 —(/P)— The Chinese government and the Communists made simultaneous announcements tonight, one saying the government 12th army group had escaped a Red ,trap. the other saying it had been "completely wiped out." The government announcement, by the defense ministry said the 12th had broken through the Communist encirclement and joined other Nationalist forces northwest of PciiRpu, a little over 100 miles from Nanking. The Communist broadcast said the remnants of the 12th, after 22 days of close entrapment, had been destroyed Wednesday night as they tried to break out towards the west. The 12th had been trapped in the weather reports and it could not stranded airmen. Officers said wese "sketchy" be determined immediately if the storm would delay the rescue mission. Meanwhile radio communication was being maintained with the icecap 'castaways, who reported they all were in excellent health, good spirits and confident of rescue. Plans for their rescue called for two gliders to alight near the men and take them aboard. The gliders :hen would be yanked into the air on tow lines by transpont planes innocent to Charges New York, Dec. 16 — (/P) —Alger Hiss today pleaded innocent to a federal grand jury's charge he lied when he denied giving secret government paper to ex-Communist agent Whittaker Chambers. The indictment was returned last night as a climax to an 18-month jury probe of alleged Communist espionage. Hiss, 44-year-old former high- ranking policy adviser in the state department, made his plea in a lirm, clear voice. Federal Judge John W. Clancy ixed Jan. 24 as the tentative date for the trial after rdering that Hiss DC fingerprinted and photographed. The judge set $5,000 bail. Hiss, now on a paid leave of absence from a $20,000-a-year post as lead of tho Carnegie Endowment for international Peace, was charged on two perjury counts. Maximum penalty on each is a $2,)00 fine and five years imprisonment. The indictment said Hiss "unlawfully, knowingly and willfully" swore falsely that (a> ho did radioed Westover that additional supplies, including warm clothing, food and heating equipment, had been dropped to the aicmen, seven of whom have been on the 8,000- foot ice cap since last Thursday, when their C-47 was forced down.

J., Dec. 16 — (fP) —The powerful American Farm Bureau Federation moved into the final day of its convention today facing a possible sharp split on federal farm programs. Its delegates were divided on an issue of future government price support aid for farm products. Its leaders and resolutions committee sought to put over a policy statement that would prevent a division in the bureau's ranks. They realized a split could weaken risking her life to save his. Small wonder that all China has come to look on this partnership as a wonderful lovcmatch. So it isn't strange that we find tier in Washington as the generalis simos's most trusted and efficient ambassador, seeking aid for her country. It is stated that thus tar she has been unsuccessful. Uncle Sam is doing all he can for China. However. Madame Chiang's mis sion needn't enter into our story further. It has performed its serv ice in emphasizing the continuing drama of this romantic team. Chiang first met his future wife (Mailing Soong) in 1922.

The conflicting announcements came as Nanking was stunned by news that the goverment's northern commander had allowed the Communists to reach Peiping's walls. Chiang Kai-hck's military propagandists and other quarters had promised that Gen. Fu Tso-yi would defend the entire Peiping Tintsin area indefinitely. Most observers here expressed belief that some understanding was being negotiated between th Reds and General Fu—which would be almost certain to speed the situation in Nanking to a climax. French Destroy Red-Controlled Radio Tower By WES GALLAGHER Berlin. Dec. 16 —(/P)—The French :odav blew up the towers of the Soviet-controlled radio Berlin, ^nocking the station off the air. The Russians, however, have another tower outlet, Germany's old Deutschland sender, 20 miles cast of the city. Brig. Gen. Jean Ganevnl, French military commander in Berlin, said the two towers were demolished by French forces this morning. The radio was not on the air at the time. Ganeval said he was compelled to destroy the towers because they wore "a very great danger" to Allied airlift planes coming in by radar to the new Tcgel field in the French sector. The towers were near the field. The French commander said he had notified the Berlin radio station management on Nov. 20 that the demolition would take place today in order to allow the management time to arrange new insta'lla- :ions in another sector. He said the ons in anchor sccor. He said he demolition took place without incident. German postal authorities said -he French not only blew up the •adio towers, but also the control installations for the towers. Demolishing the towers climaxed i long four-power dispute over radio Berlin.

Bugs Bunny Warns: SMOPP/WG 0AVS TO CHRISTMAS Allies Can't Agree on West Germany Occupation Pian Frankfurt, Germany, Dec. 16 — (.V) — The three Western military governors failed today to reach final agreement on an occupation statute for Western Germany and referred the matter to their respective governments. The occupation statute would serve as a substitute for a peace treaty in outlining what powers woud be assigned to a Western German government. "No comment." said General Lucius D. Clay, American military governor, to reporters as he left the conference room. The difficulty was understood to Last Contracts Let to Complete River Bridge Memphis. Dec. 10 —i/?i— The Memphis and Arkansas Bridge Commission yesterday awarded the last of the contracts needed to complete the new Mississippi bridge project. Contracts awarded were: Lehman-Roberts Co. of Memphis $245.459 to build the Tennessee approach to the bridge abutment. Ben M. Hogun and Co. of Little Rock 8425,554 to rebuild and with four lanes of concrete "deep concern lest irreparable damage be done" if the American court "arrogates" to itself power to review the Tokyo tribunal's actions. Solicitor General Philip B. Perlman said any such move not only would be a blow to peaceful and judicial settlements of international disputes and "the continued [rowtn of world law" but: "Other cooperative endeavors x x x such as United Nations activities, also will suffer." In fact, Perlman inssisted, "most unhappy consequences can be anti- pa ted in the development of inter- ational affairs." The government sent Perlman back to the court today (12:30 p. m. CST) to bolster with oral arguments the views he outlined in his brief. Specifically it to reject the _. ri American attorneys "for two""of the condemned Japanese as well as five others who got prison sentences last November 12. From Tokyo came George ,A. Furness of Boston, John G. Brann- non of Kansas City and American- born George Yamaoka of New York to press their appeals. They contend the 11-nation Allied military tribunal was illegally set up by Gen. Douglas Mac-Arthur supreme occupation commander. Perlman disputed this argument and said furthermore the American court has no power to review such "military and political decisions" of the president as his agreement with the wartime allies to punish war criminals. The high court set aside three hours for today's arguments—an hour more than customary. After listening to the debate, the justices likely will take up the cases in their regular closed conference on Saturday.

The fighting appears relatively small-scale and concentrated mostly west of the city walls.

They claim that a man still working for the army as a civilian stole secrets of the famous Norden Domb sight and passed them along to Russia in 1938. In the grand jury indictment handed down in New York Hiss was accused of having sworn falser ly (a) that he did not give secret state department papers to Whittaker Chambers a decade ago arid (b) that he did not talk to the confessed former Communist spy rintj courier during February and March of 1938. Hiss issued a statement insisting his testimony had been true. But even as the committee switched its main efforts away from the Hiss-Chambers case, it turned loose 26 more documents it said were among those Chambers claimed he got from Hiss.
