TEN Philippines To Seek Help From America Hxiks, Graft Charges, Conurmnisls Endanger Struggling Republic By SPENCER DAVIS. MANILA — (f?1 — Can the Philippines remain a democratic outpost If their big neighbor China .falls under complete Communist domination? Uneasily watching the tide of Communism on the Asiatic continent. Philippines government policy makers think their two-and-one- half-year-old republic can make the grade"—provided the United States continues to extend a strong helping hand. The question of continued American aid may be one of the strongest reasons President Elpldlo Qulr- tao Is considering ft trip to Washington shortly after President Truman's inaugural in January. Cash Aid Ends 1950 The flow of American dollars into these war-ravaged islands is now at full flood, but is due to end in 1950, when it will have reached almost $2,000,000,000, The Job of rebuilding will be far from done by then. The Filipinos are enjoying •. dollar-inspired boom now. but have been warned that depression lurks ahead. Narcino Ramos, new minister to Argentina and former minister in Washington, recently- expressed these fears. "It Is well to realize that a Communist victory in China will be a serious threat to our democratic.in- xtitutions-and to our way of life," he said. Keds Dispersed, But Active After three months of bloody campaigning, the Communist-led Hukbalahap (Japs) guerrillas have been dispersed, but not destroyed. Crops in central Luzon, the main Philippine island ,are harvested under guard. • Adding uncertainty is the 19« presidential election campa-igji. President Quirino's administration is none too confident of being retained next November. A rigorous battle of personalities Is almost certain between. Quirino and Dr. Jose P. Laurel, whose ardent nationalism is often construed as anti-Americanism. Quirino succeeded to the presidency on the death of President Manuel Roxas last April 15. He. is a candidate for a full term, but has ' had to fight an uphill battle for support and national popularity. His own Liberal 'Party is controlled by the enigmatic Jose Avelino, president of the senate. Avelino says he ii not a candidate for president. Served Under Japs Laurel got his anti-American label through serving as president of the wartime puppet government set up by the Japanese. H • is campaigning steadily-for the presidency. Nowadays he toasts: "To American friendship — and p-eater friendship than to any other nation." ' He usually manages to add some iort of stinger, critical of American foreign policy, which he feels has disillusioned most Asiatic people. He tells audiences.that American lympathy for colonial peoples has given way to financial and military support of such colonial. powers as Britain, The Netherl-nds and Prance. He describes himself as a Socialist. Charges Graft, Corruption His greatest popular appeal rides on his repeated charges that graft and corruption are rampant. The government has been embarrassed by recurrent reports of irregularities. Luxulous new homes, extravagant automobiles, lavish parties and world tours by officials ,stand out starkly in this war-ravaged country. They have aroused a deep cynicism. Manila papers refer to such situations as "anomalies," and this has become a favorite headline word for attacks on the administration. Induction Tests Taken By Four Board 29 Men Preinduction tests were given four men from Selective Service Board 29 at the Army and Air Force Ke- cruiting Station yesterday. Examined were James L. Coleman. Hulbert H. Hansrote, Robert B. Morgan and Bertram Frledland Twelve from Frostburg Board 30 are scheduled for tests today. Enlistees announced yesterday day -were Donald J./Judy. Romney, W.

It was in the latter, country that he entered the architectural and civil engineering school of Belgrade .University from which he graduated in 1935. • But the cruelty and bloodshed, the brutal -violation of every human right and the indignities which he witnessed from boyhood, 1 and the tragic . fate of his father, left its mark on the young man's character and outlook, and as Communism developed its brutality, he became filled. with .a feeling .of hatred against Communism 'and its methods.

In 1944 this group WHS also discovered by the Nazi SS, and forced into concentration camps and slave labor. He was again able to organize escapes in increasing numbers and in 1945, was again arrested By the Gestapo and held In a concentration camp in Wolfeben. Once more he effected an escape during the tumult of the rapid flight of the SS, who were terrified by the encirclement movement of the British and American, troops. When the American army finally occupied the area, Boldyreff placed his organization at the disposal of the United States Military Government, He' organized a supply system, a hospital, a motor pool and 16 camps, and was put in charge of 40,000 displaced persons. Of 8,000 former Soviet citizens registered in that area, 5,736, .he said, refused to be repatriated. Later when the American army evacuated Thuringia, he organized the evacuation of all Russian, Ukranian, Polish and Baltic displaced persons to Kassell in the American zone. - At this stage he began to work actively against forcible repatriation of Soviet citizens and cooperated closely with, the American Military Government. Soviet representatives demanding -jhis extradition, 'the Americans arrested him and placed in protective custody from which he was released three months later when immediate danger to his life seemed to be over.- In 1945 he went to Paris to :ni- tiate negotiations regarding the re- .
