It Hod Its Austere Side The 17-inch snow which blanketed Northeastern states this week-end points to the fabled White Chrisl- ,mas of song and story. And while Mt's more or less a romantic illusion down South I feel it my duty as a native of the snow counlry lo recall the cold facts. On Ihe favorable side, a snowbound counlry docs have these things to offer you: Bobslcdding behind a team in a farm wagon whose wheels have been removed and replaced vyith snow-runners; coasting down hill on a sled; skiing and skating; and driving through the Winter night with a girl in a cutler drawn by a fast mare. ht On the unfavorable side, I have thai in the E your feet never get warm; and, snow being a very unstable article, the ground alternates between hard ice and mclU'vg slush. This would be bearable for a couple of clays, but on a Winter-long schedule it fills you wilh the thought ol Southern lands. And I have a detailed indictment even against the iavorablc qualities of the snow counlry. Take skiing, for instance. You can have it. The highest jump I *-ever made was about six feet. You have to remember two things about skiing: (1) To keep your toes pointed outward on the plunge down the ski run; and (2) to dig in' your heels at the moment of Ihe •take-off. But the last thing I have It) say about skiing is that sooner or lalcr you forgot—and that wraps up the subject of skiing. Another romantic subject is ice- skating. But the things you don't hear about it outside of the snow country are things like the time a crowd of us kids were skating * merrily on a good-sized pond ana somebody rode -a Shetland pony out on the ice and broke through —putting us all in the water and sending us shivering home on a mile-long hike, disgruntled knights in icy armor. And about that moonlight ride in a cutter drawn by a fast marc —I'll give you the lowdown on that, Washington, Dec. 20 —(/Pi— The Supreme court today refused to interfere with the international military tribunal which condemned former Premier Tojo and six other Japanese war lords to death. The court by a vote of G-l decided it had no authority over the Gin Operator Shot to Death Near Blythevilie Blytheville, Dec, 20 — (IP) — A Joiner, Ark., cotton gin operator was shot to death near here early today and officers arrested .a man they said admitted firing the fatal bullet in self defense. The victim was David Chery Byrd, Jr., 31. Nick D.

Consider their appeals j 2. Declare the international tri-! bunal illegal; 3. Order their immediate release. The refusal presumably seals the doom of Tojo and the other six who were sentenced to die on the gallows. General MacArthur confirmed their sentences, but stayed the executions until the supreme court acted. Justice Murphy dissented from Ihe court's dcicision but wrote no opinion. irom what the argument stemmed. Justice Rutlcdgc reserved dcci- j . sion at this time and said thai announcement of his vole would be made later on. Justice Jackson took no part in the final vote. j The other six members of the j high court — Chief Juslice Vinson | and Justices Black, Redd, Frank- I 'Curler.

A shovel was lying beside Byrd on Ihe ground when Barbour and other officers arrived at the scene.

The British-licensed newspaper Telegraf reported that the meadows at Stolpe already had been reoccupied by the Russians in reprisal for blasting Russia's number lecled and is acting as the supreme commander for the allied powers. The military tribunal sentencing these petitioners (the Japanese) has been set up by General MacArthur as the agcnl of the allied powers. I "Under the foregoing circtim- 1 stances the courts of the United States have no power or authority to review, to affirm, set aside or annul the judgments and sentences ifnposcd on these petitioners and for this reason the motions for leave to file petitions for writ for habeas corpus arc denied."

Ihe Whittaker Chambers- Alger Hiss investigation continues— as it apparently is going to—a side investigating of the Juslice Depart- menl might be in order. On Dec. 1 officials of the department gave out a statement that thcv still had possible perjury charges" against either of these men "under study," but that there would be no use in going to a grand jury with the evidence they had at present. That evidence, they said, lailed to show which one, if either, .was lying. "If either,"' mind you, after "Mr. Chambers had sworn that Mr. Hiss was a prewar Comi munist agent in Washington, and Mr. Hiss hat! sworn lhal he wasn't Also tm Dee. 1, Iwo Washington rtporlers came oul wilh stories that now and important evidence in the Hiss-Chambers case had been discovered. Others newspapermen took up this lead and found thai there were, lo put it mildly, some contradictory ideas among the attorney general's help about the qualily'of the evidence al hand. Assistant Attorney General Campbell, in charge of the department's criminal division, told a ' New York Herarkl Tribune reporter thai he jusl coukln'l comment on stories lhal deposilions had been taken or new documents produced because Ihe Chambers-Hiss case was "loo hoi." Another reporter from the same newspaper got Mr. Chambers, his attorney, and an attorney for Mr. Hiss on the phono and asked each the same five questions regarding Ihe reported depositions, what they had contained, and what had been done with them. All three refused * to answer any of the questions. We can conceive of an investigation of alleged Communist activity in government as being "too hot" for preliminary disclosures before the investigation was complete. But we cannot see why a Justice Department, attorney should refuse to confirm or deny th.il U!/posii:c>:>:; had been tal.en in ihe Chambers- Hiss libel suit which mij'hl have Continued on page two Washington, Dec. 20 — (/P) —Sec rotary of the Treasury John W.
