Page 8 Union Launches Drive 'Stool Pigeons' Assailed By Mine, Mill Delegates EL PASO, Tex. (INS) Some 100 delegates of the International Union of Mine, Mill, and Smelter Workers launched a nation-wide campaign yesterday against what they called "professional informers and stool pigeons" used in the prosecution of alleged Com munists.

McKay, president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, spoke at televised services yesterday attended by an overflow congregation of 2,000 persons, many of them Maori natives. The 81-year-old Salt Lake City. Utah, church leader appeared tired after he and Mrs. McKay were personally introduced to 2,000 persons following the services. Members of his party expressed concern for his health. McKay leaves New Zealand today for Australia on the next leg of his six-week tour of church missions in the South Pacific which began Jan. 2.

Washington AL 4-7727 mobilize against anti-Communist trials or' hearings throughout the United States as a part of the drive. , -' ' Union officials said the campaign was aimed at the forthcoming trial in Denver of Union Secretary-Treasurer Maurice Travis, who is charged with swearing falsely in a non-Communist affidavit filed with the National Labor Relations Board. The drive began with a bitter attack against Harvey Matusow, a former FBI informer and ex-Communist. Matusow has presented an affidavit to the federal court in El Paso claiming he lied when he linked Clinton E. Jencks, the union's international representative,' to the Communist Party. The representative was found guilty last January on a charge of perjury in a non-Communist affidavit filed with the NLRB, and is free on a $10,000 bond pending appeal. A hearing on .lencks's petition for a new trial has been set for March 7. Referring to Matusow's testimony in Jencks's trial, Orville Larsen, international vice president, said: "He not only lied about a member of our union, but also against universities in our country. United States senators and has lied about some of our great newspapers in the country." ! Government officials indicated that perjury charges may be filed ; agaist Matusow if he repudiates, testimony given for the government in the Jencks trial. Offi- jcials said charges would be pre- : pared wherever the former infor mer appeared as a government witness and repudiated his sworn testimony. The Smelter Workers Union, now unaffiliated, was ousted from the CIO in 1950 on charges that its leadership followed the Communist line. th b W ft M ff NfcN ftp ''l-ll-vr Spoil I" oe T Melzcer, chairman of Roosevelt Council Silver Beaver Vuuu. kJtuuis committee, center, presented Silver Beaver badges to these four men at 33rd annual meeting of Roosevelt Council, Inc., Boy Scouts of America.

Rapid increase in crime during recent years has brought about a revision of penal codes imposing stiffer sentences. This has resulted in an overflow at Lecum- berri Federal Penitentiary here, the newspaper said. Criminal court judges have petitioned the government to construct a new penitentiary to take care of the numerous criminals freed on bond because there is no more space in the hoosgow. La Prensa complained that housebreakers, pickpockets, and "other thieves" are merely detained overnight, then set free on bond the next day to "continue their work." Judges said the Lecumberri penitentiary, constructed at the turn of the century when Mexico City was one-sixth its present size, is insufficient for the pres ent population of 3,500,000.

The con troversy over the so-called can cer drug, krebiozen, flared anew yesterday with publication of a book that accuses the American Medical Association of suppressing the drug. ine ama responded with a statement which said it has not changed its mind about regarding the drug as worthless. The book, entitled "K Krebiozen Key to Cancer," was written by Herbert Baily of Chicago, former newspaperman and a free lance writer. It reviews the entire controversy over krebiozen and comes to agreement with developers of the drug that the AMA indulged in politics to suppress research with it. THE BOOK also cites many cases in which krebiozen, developed by Dr. Stevan Durovic from the "stimulated" blood of horses, was said to have aided cancer sufferers. The controversy, one of the most heated in modern medicine, has raged for years since Durovic first reported thaat krebiozen appeared to reduce cancerous growth and give relief from the terrible pairt of the disease. The AMA said that the "recent flareup of publicity and propaganda to promote krebiozen is no reason for the AMA to change frnm its nrevinns sminrl scientific He moved to Phoenix five months position that the so-called cancer drug is worthless." ago from St. Louis, Mo, He is survived by a son, Gila, stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.

BPHS Students Find: Props For 'January Thaiv Are Not Easy To Locate By MERV KOLB Campus Correspondent Students of the North Phoenix High School Drama Department ran into a little difficulty when they found out what props were needed for "January Thaw," the department's second production of the school year. Members of the group went to furniture stores, antique shops, museums, and they even rum-1- - maged through attics before Th ... , , one set. thev found the necessary items. l.

Mrs. Gage, who is one of the leading characters in the play, has an eye for items of antique value which she collected freely. The scenery for "January Muggs's Mug Irks Izvestia MOSCOW (UP) The government organ Izvestia said yesterday J. Fred Muggs, a chimpanzee and U.S. television actor, "is a symbol of the American way of life." "Muggs is necessary in order that the average American should not hear, should not look into reports on rising taxes and decreasing pay, but laugh at the funny mug-of a chimpanzee." Dr. George F. Lull, AMA secre tary and general manager, said that exaggerated claims are be ing presented and relevant facts are disregarded." ! DR. ANDREW C. IVY, who befriended Durovic and his brother, Marko, and who has defended krebiozen as . worthy of further study, granted a rare interview to answer the AMA statement. He denied that krebiozen had been given a "fair or scientific test by the AMA or by anyone else." The job of research is "still unfinished," he said. "It was shown at hearings under oath and never denied under oath that much of the evidence reported by the AMA was dishonest and the remainder was superficial," he said. "We have done everything in regards to research short of a controlled scientific experiment. The AMA is blocking that," he added. Ivy, distinguished professor of physiology and head of the de-j partment of clinical science at the ! University of Illinois Professional Colleges, said AMA co-operation would be needed for such a study and to publish the results. St. Augustine, Fla., will celebrate its 400th birthday in only 10 years. Eldon Quick is student director for the production. In charge of the various crews are Fred Kest-ner, stage director; Barbara Bunch, properties; Graham Smith, publicity; Margie Liem, make-up; Elaine Bright, scenes; Eva Grammar, costumes; Danny Miller, lights; and Gloria Greenhill, business.
