This is the sixth day since the boy, son of wealthy automobile dealer Robert C. Greenlcase was kidnaped from the French Institute of Notre Dame De Sion, a private Catholic school. Yet his disappearance and its ramifications have become even more puzzling daily with rumors and numerous angles adding to the complexity of the case.

Troast, Republican candidate for governor of New Jersey, conceded he wrote a letter in 1951 to Dewey asking executive clemency for Fay. But he told a news conference he knew the one-time construction laborer only as a "business connection and never socially." Troast said he saw "nothing improper" in the letter. Troast said he had not seen Fay since he entered prison. His name was not«on the list of visitors. Extortion Charged Fay, former vice president of the AFL International Operating Engineers union, was convicted in 1945 of extortion and attempting to extort $386,000 from the Delaware aqueduct project. The aqueduct is part of the New York City water system. He entered Sing Sing Feb. 29, 1948, for Vh to 15 years, after having served one year in a New York City jail.

LP) — State's Attorney Robert C. Nelson said Friday night a woman archeologist has signed a statement that she attempted to burn down a hotel at Fox Lake. Attractive, brown-haired, blue-: eyed, Miss Joyce Davlin, 31, of Fox Lake and Miami, Fla., was charged with arson and released on $5,000 bond. Miss Davlin admitted, Nelson said, that she attempted to burn down the 108-room Mineola Hotel on Mineola Bay in Fox Lake Thursday night about 8:30 p. m. Ownership in Dispute "I felt if I destroyed all or part of the hotel the present operators would leave and litigation withj them over the hotel ownership would be dropped," Nelson quoted her. The present operator of the hotel, Peter Jakstas, has been battling in the courts for seven years over ownership with Miss Davlin's mother Kathryn, a widow, and the latter's sister, Mrs. Cora Welch. Fear 3 Dead, 30 Trapped In Oil Tank EVERETT, Mass. MP) — At least three men were believed dead and about 30 others trapped in the collapse of a tank being built at the Esso Standard Oil Co. plant in East Everett, just north of Boston A reporter at the scene said he saw three bodies removed. First reports said 30 to 40 men were trapped in the underground tank as a staging or wall collapsed. Stale police communications reported a request had been sent out for ambulances and that 39 men were trapped. Part of the collapsed material was concrete, police said. A spokesman at the plant said it was not known how many workmen were trapped or whether any had been injured. Ambulances were rushed to the scene from Everett, Boston and other communities. First reports said the accident occurred 35 feet underground when a staging gave way. Refugee Tells Reason for Abandoning Native Country Knowland Returns From Tour of World's Capitals WASHINGTON Cfl— Sen. Knowland (R-Calif) ended a five weeks' tour of the free world's capitals today with a plea for the anti- Communist nations to "stand firm." "I have come back with the very firm belief that if there ever was a time world it was important for Appraisal Sets Value of Church Art Under $10,000 CHICAGO (UP)-The cash value of four of nine historic paintings stolen from a Kentucky cathedral has been estimated at less than $10,000. Earlier, the paintings were said to have a value of $675,000. They were stolen last November from St. Joseph's Cathedral in Bardstown, Ky. The appraisal was made Friday in the trial of Norton I. Kretske, 47, and Joseph De Pietro, 49. Kenneth Donahue, 39, director of curatorial work at the Ringling Museum, Sarasota, Fla., testified that the paintings' chief value was primarily historic. He estimated the worth of one, WASHINGTON (AP)— What makes a mild speaking white collar man, a Pole who has lived under totalitarian domination half his life, cut all his ties and bolt to freedom? Jan Hadjukiewicz did it Sept. 9 in Kangnung, Korea, and at the same time began telling why. He has been telling more, in bits and mostly during news conferences, from Korea to Washington He arrived here Friday to re port to the State Department. As he tells the story, love of freedom inspired him, chance played a large part, free world radio broadcasts were a goad and evidently the fierce nationalism of oft-conquered Poland never let him rest. Son of Peasants When he walked away from the Communist members of a neutral nations truce inspection team and up to an astonished U. S. major to ask for asylum, he blurted his first explanation: "It's my last chance." Hadjukiewicz is 28. He was about 14 when the Nazis, later followed by the Reds, took over Poland. Of unheroic medium build, blond with a prematurely high forehead, he would look at home behind a desk in an American office. He sat behind a desk in the Polish Export- Import Agency before a crack in the Iron Curtain opened for him. Hadjukiewicz is the son of peasants. His father lives off five hectares—about 12 acres. But he learned languages and rose to a bureaucrat's status. He says, nonetheless, he was never a Communist, never even a member of any Communist youth organization. He had never traveled outside Poland, but he said he knew that "the United Slates is a friend of i our nation." He credited broadcasts of the Voice of America an(' Radio Free Europe for strengthen ing that belief. As for Russia: "From Moscow. . . we have known only murder, looting andj slavery. . . the Soviets hate Poland and the Poles for their cultural 1 superiority. . . we dream of the moment when. . . the Kremlin agents, now lolling behind government desks, will be driven where they first came from—that is, Moscow." where their plane went down The sighting was reported by I flying officer Jim Haugh, North J Bay, Ont., who was flying a Canso plane from the RCAF station at Greenwood, N.S.

PANMUNJOM, Korea (UP) — Relations between the Allies and Indian guardians of anti-Communist prisoners neared a critical stage today. Gen. Mark W. Clark, retiring Far Eastern commander of United Nations forces, bluntly rejected an Indian proposal to subject prisoners to interviews longer than 90 days. The Communists turned over a list of 308 prisoners they said escaped, died or were released at the front. The move once again dashed U. N. hopes of getting back more Allied war prisoners. South Korea Threatens South Korea accused the Indians of acting like Communists and threatened to "take up arms against them" because of the death of three prisoners in the Indian custodial camp. Lt. Gen. K. S. Thimayya, chairman of the Indian-dominated Neutral Nations Repatriation Commission, had asked Clark to agree to extending the interviews beyond Dec. 24, the termination date set by the Korean armistice. Thimayya suggested that "explainers" of both sides be permitted to talk to the prisoners at least 30 days beyond the Dec. 24 deadline. Clark refused.

Thugs Take Rare Day Off to Root For Dent Bums NEW YORK UP) — The World Series halted crime in Brooklyn—temporarily. Police said Friday was the first Friday in years on which no holdup was recorded there. Friday is usually a big crime day because most payrolls are distributed then. The police surmised the gunmen were too busy attending the Ebbets field game or watching it on television. But starting about 7 p.m. after the excitement as the Dodger victory died down, there was a rash of five holdups. Girl Shoots Boy In Classroom; Gun 'Only a Toy' CHICAGO Wl—A 14-year-old high school boy was fatally shot Friday by a girl classmate who thought the gun he handed her was a toy. "Go ahead, pull the trigger, it's only a toy," the youth, Patrick Colletta, told Bernice Turner, 14, as they sat in a classroom in the Holden branch of Kelly High School. She pulled the trigger of the .32 caliber automatic pistol and the bullet struck Colletta above the right eye. More than 20 pupils in the room screamed as Colletta toppled out of his desk onto the floor. He died seven hours later in a hospital. The girl told police Colletta had handed her the gun after she had refused him a date. She was held by juvenile authorities pending a coroner's inquest Monday. cade.

Mother's Plea To POW Son Made Public EDITOR'S NOTE: Mrs. Zady Pate, 43-year-old mother of nine, learned through a Defense Department telegram her prisoner of war son, Cpl. Arlie Pate, 21, did not want to come home from Communist imprisonment. Here is her plea for him to return. By MRS. ZADY PATE As Told to United Press CARBONDALE, 111. (UP) — Please come back to the farm, Arlie. You always wanted to come back. You remember your dad was sick when you left? If you don't conic back soon you may never see him again. I've been just sick since I got the telegram that you didn't want to come home. I can hardly stop crying. The doctor says it will help me if you'll come back. I've got a lot of gray hairs now that I didn't have when you left. Come back before there are more. The boys have been taking care of the farm. They're almost men now. But we have corn yet to harvest and we need your help. Remember the fried chicken dinner we had the night you left after your furlough? We'll have another just like it if you'll just come back to us. We've got all kinds of canned fruits laid in, too. Just like you asked for in your letters. Your twin brothers, Ronnie and Donnie, have been doing a lot of squirrel-hunting lately. They'd like for you to come back and go out with them. You'd like that, too. They're only 14. But you should see the way they've grown. They are not big enough to take care of the place yet, though. We need you. The rest of your brothers and sisters miss you all the time, too. Your cousin, Johnny Jones, who wanted to join up with you, has become a minister, and he's praying for you to come back. He'« married and has a son now. You can do the same. I don't think you 've ever seen your sister Goldie's boy, Mearl.
