2 Sept. 27, 1949 Kuan City Globe-Gaietle, M»«»n City, I*. Russians Are Building V-2 Rocket Bases Frankfurt, Germany, (U,R)—Reports that the Russians are building a network of V-2 rocket launching bases pointed at strategic points in western Europe have been confirmed, American and British intelligence sources said Monday. • These reports said the sites for the V-bombs, which were showered ori England during the war, were backed up with radar installations designed to keep the guided missiles . on their courses. A detailed report on the soviet .installations was brought out of Russia by a German expert in the field who was shipped to Russia with other German technicians in 1946 but who managed to escape to the west recently. The V-bomb expert, whose name cannot be disclosed, was forced to work for 3 years, on soviet scientific projects, including the "soviet central institute for V-bomb development" in Moscow. He' was identified as a former scientist at the . German V-2 Bleicherode works in Thuringia. He said "plans for both fixed and mobile bases have been worked out in detail and stationary bases of 1 and 3 batteries have been installed all over east, Europe." DIES OF BURNS Bemiclji, M i 11 n., (#>)— P h i 1 i p Finestead, 50, one of 5 Granger, Iowa, men. burned in an oil stove explosion Sunday, died early Tuesday. Lutheran hospital attendants, who withheld word of the death until relatives had been notified, said the other 4 men remained in fair condition. Washington, (IP) —Swift agreement in a senate-house commit- ee on a $1,314,010,000 overseas arms program sped along Tuesday one U. S. answer to Russia's A-bomb claims. The news of an atomic blast in Russia served to speed agreement among the lawmakers that friend- y nations must be strengthened against the threat of communism. A senate-house conference late Monday sidetracked a house economy move and agreed, in 3 hours, on the higher cost program voted earlier by the senate. The discarded house figure was $869,415,000, or $444,595,000 less than •"ihe agreed-upon senate figure. The conferees worked on final small points Tuesday.

Phone 222 House-Senate Group Agrees on Foreign Arms Plan Will Not G/Ve sional action, first by the house and the senate. Chairman Connally (D.-Texas) of the senate foreign relations committee told reporters the Russian atomic reports "have given the arms program new strength." Republican Senators Bridges of New Hampshire and Knowland of California agreed. Usually, conferees appointed to settle senate - house differences reach agreement by an in-between compromise. In this case the house members dropped any pretense of fighting for the lower figure. And as the authorization bill now stands it contains: $1,000,000,000 for the North Atlantic pact nations; $211,370,000 for Greece and Turkey; $27,640,000 for Iran, Korea and the Philippines; $75,000,000 which may be spent by the president—as he sees fit— in the China area;' Permission to ship $450,000,000 of surplus arms. House members,insisted on only relatively minor changes in the arms plan voted by the senate. Briefly, the program would authorize the bulk of arms aid for western Europe and make $125,000,000 available immediately to get the aid program underway. This money would come from the reconstruction finance corporation. The remainder of the cash and contract authority would be provided by 'appropriation. The aid for western Europe is divided $500,000,000 in cash and $500,000,- 000 in authority to enter contracts. Only $100,000,000 in cash could be spent immediately. The remainder would become available only after President Truman approves defense recommendations made by the Atlantic pact military committee. The senate insisted on putting this string on the spending to tie the program more closely to the operations of the North Atlantic security council and ths defense committee. Tlva house members gave ground too, in accepting aid for the China area. The house had voted nothing for China. The conference action does not bind either house to accept the bill. Most lawmakers, however, had little doubt about the bill getting quick approval. More Facts on Russian Bomb Editors Warn Tax Group on Censorship Des Moines, (JP) — A warning against "censorship" in the state tax commission was given Tuesday in a letter by editors or publishers of 30 Iowa daily newspapers. „ The letter to Warren Wells, chairman of the state tax commission asked the 3-man board to reconsider and withdraw a set of rules adopted by the commission recently. The rules would limit news information from the tax commission offices to that approved in written form by the commis« sion. - Dangerous Precedent ' In the letter the editors said they do not question the commission's motives, but they went on to point but that "a device which would permit a small group of men to withhold public information from the citizens who sup- MACES DR. D. E. BOYENGA, O.D. Eyes Examined - Glasses Fitted All of Dr. Maces' Records Still on File. New Location: 8 So. Delaware Phone 577 port our state government is a dangerous precedent." Most of the daily "newspapers in the state were represented in the protest. "If reporters are refused access to all information, except that which you and your 2 colleagues agree to release, it cannot be denied that censorship exists," the statement points -out. No Such Policy "Even our national department of defense, which deals with vital security matters, nas no such restrictive policy as this. "We respectfully request you to reconsider this action and withdraw this order." Editors signing the letter included Paul Bumbarger of the Charles City Press and Earl Hall of the Mason City Globe-Gazette. Tokyo Rose Trial in Hands of Jury San Francisco, (U.R)—The .Tokyo Rose treason trial went to a jury of 6 men and 6 women Monday. If the jury brings in a' verdict of guilty, Mrs. D 1 Aquino could draw a minimum prison term of 5 years and a $10,000 fine or she could be sentenced to die. Since the prosecution made no demand for the extreme penalty, imposition of the death sentence was considered unlikely. Slavs Ousted From Hungary Budapest, Hungary, (ff) — The Hungarian 'government Monday night ordered 10 members of the Yugoslav legation to leave the country within 24 hours. The order was contained in a sharply worded note from the Hungarian foreign ministry to the Yugoslav legation Monday night. It stated that the recent trial of Laszlo Raik, former Hungarian foreign minister and No. 2 communist in this country, had proved completely that leading persons of Yugoslavia's present government took part in a plot which was aimed to overthrow the Hungarian people's republic, the killing of leading Hungarian statesmen and restoration of capitalism and fascism as instigators and organizers." The Yugoslav legation officials ordered out included First Counselor Dusan Sakota, Second Secretary Slavko Zecevic and Military Attache Kilibarda Mahajlo. The other 7 were secretaries and clerical personnel. 15 DP'S TO IOWA Washington, (IP)— The International Refugee organization announced that 15 of the 892 displaced persons due to arrive in Fly's wings vibrate 330 times a New York Monday are to locate second. in Iowa. 3 Bandits Hold Up Pawnshop in Iowa City Iowa City, (/P)—Three young bandits held up the'Reliable Loan Co. .here shortly after 1 p. m. Monday. They escaped with a small arsenal of guns and ammunition and about $175 hi cash. Forrest F. Meye- 37, proprietor of the downtown business, said the 3 were in the establishment only about 8 minutes. He said that he .was in the rear of the pawnshop, talking with a customer. The 3 bandits, appearing to be other customers, walked in the front door and waited near counters there. The bandits forced Meyer to give them 4 revolvers and 2 30-30 caliber rifles, ammunition for the guns, $100 from the shop's funds, and $75 from his pocket. London, (U.R)—The government Tuesday rejected Winston Churchill's request for further information on Russian progress in the atomic field. Prime Minister Clement Attlee, standing pat on the official announcement last Friday, told the house of commons that he did not believe further disclosure would be "in the public interest." Winston Churchill, leader of the conservative opposition, touched off the brief comment on soviet atom developments at the outset of the special session. Attlee appealed to Russia^again to agree on the international atomic inspection, and he rejected a suggestion that Russia may have outstripped America on the atom bomb by saying he did not think that matter " really arose." "We believe," Attlee told the house, "there should be international control of atomic energy. Great progress would be made if the soviet government would agree to international inspection." Parliament reconvened to debate the devaluation of the pound. Both Attlee and Churchill were cheered as they took their seats in the house. Huge crowds gathered outside the house of parliament. The labor government was facing its gravest crisis, and was staking its life on a vote of confidence based on the devaluation of the pound and related aspects of the socialist program.
