PAGE 4 THE PITTSBURGH PRESS. THURSDAY. JANUARY 13. 1944 Simms Soys RUSSO-POLISH BORDER DISPUTE IS MAJOR ISSUE One of World's Biggest Single Questions Confronts Allies Read an editorial, "The President's Secret Diplomacy." on. Page 12. By WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS Scripps-Howard Foreign Editor WASHINGTON. Jan. 13 Informed foreign envoys here characterize Russia's stand with regard to Polish and other Eastern European frontiers as the most important single question confronting the world today. That is so, they say, because the outcome will go a long way toward deciding whether or not America will join in creating a workable peace organization after the war. Without her, no such organization would be possible. Speaking for the State Department, James Clement Dunn, who accompanied Secretary Hull to Moscow last October, said Saturday that of Russia. Britain, China and the United States had failed to agree, "the. international future would indeed be a hopeless one. The dread certainty of a Third World War would have settled on us even before World War II was finished." Future Is Obscure The principal agreement of which he spoke the draft of which was taken to Moscow by Mr. Hull pledged the Big Four to wage war together until the enemy had surrendered unconditionally, whereupon they would collaborate in establishment' of a world peace organization based on the sovereign equality of all peace-loving states, large and small. Today, however, the future which brightened after Moscow and the subsequent meetings at Cairo and Teheran, again is in obscurity. Instead of working within the spirit 01 tne agreements of Moscow and Teheran, Russia apparently insists on going it alone. - She not only claims the right to shift European frontiers to suit herself, but indicates a determination to deal only with neighborine "governments" fashioned to her liking. All this is creating a profound impression here. Force Is Necessary It Is axiomatic that foroe is an indispensable factor in any practicable peace setup. Yet few believe that any Washington administration, whether Democratic or Republican, would dare order American boys to their death defending frontiers unilaterally established at the expense of small nations. What happens to Poland, therefore, may now decide the workability of the Atlantic Charter, the Moscow agreements and similar pacts. That, in turn, will determine whether the world will be forward whether the world will go forward to the balance-of-power system. Favor Collaboration I find officials here overwhelmingly in favor of international collaboration after the war, but I know of none who favor it "at any price." They know that the peace following this war will determine whether and how soon we may expect World War III. America, therefore, must be consulted on every vital phase of peacemaking especially any having to do with the fate of nations or peoples or their frontiers. Today's issue of "Foreign Correspondents," edited by Sir Willmott Lewis, who knows America better than most Americans, declares: "The basis of American foreign policy . . . must find the domestic foundation firm. For 150 years or more, the people of this country have been willing to say what they would not do, but never yet to bind themselves to what they would do ... it follows that a turn from the negative to the positive in foreign policy involves a great decision for it involves ... a departure from settled habits of thought." Which is why any brutal, unilateral decisions on the part of our European allies at this moment may upset the collaboration applecart.

Kennedy Saves As Japs All But Two Return After Destroyer Rams Them By INGA ARVAD North American Newspaper Alliance. LOS ANGELES, Jan. 13 This is the story of the 13 American men on PT Boat 109, who got closer than any -others to a Japanese de stroyer and of the 11 who lived to tell about it. It is about the skipper hero, 26-year-old Lt. John F. Kennedy, son of Joseph P. Kennedy, former U. S. ambassador to Great Britain, now home on leave, who though he saved three lives, and swam for long hours in shark-iniest ed waters to rescue his men, today says: "None of that hero stuff about me. The real heroes are not the men who return, but those who stay out there like plenty of them do, two oi my men included. "It happened on the night of Aug 1. It was one of those tropical. black nights without a star or the moon, and the Japs were taking ad vantage of the darkness to try to relieve their garrison at Kolomban gara. The job of our boats was to stop them from doing so. Dark Shape Looms Up "We were patrolling at low speed on one engine when a dark shape suddenly loomed up on our starboard bow about 250 yards away. I turned into him to fire my fish, hoping that I could get on him before he saw us. "I guess he saw us a couple of seconds later, because he turned into us, going like hell, with a speed of more than 40 knots. Bv the time we were bow on to him for the shot, he was bow on to us, 40 yards away and getting closer. There was no point in letting the fish go, because they have to travel a certain distance before they explode on contact. "The Jap destroyer rammed into us about ten seconds after we first sighted him, striking forward of our forward starboard tube and shearing off the starboard of the bat aft. including the starboard eneinp. The destroyer didn"t fire, nor did it siow down as she split our boat. leaving pari or lt on one side and the other half on the other. Like Onrushingr Train "How it felt?" Lt. Kennedy looked up as he said, "I can best compare it to the onrushing trains in the old-time movies. They seemed to come right over you. Well, the feeling was the same, only the destroyer didn't come over us, it went right, through us. "The sea was covered with burning gasoline about 20 vards away from us. After about 20 minutes it died down. "Two other officers, three men and I were clinging onto the hull. When I thought, the fire would spread I ordered all hands to abandon ship, but later we climbed back. We set out to rescue the rest of the men. It took three hours before the survivors were brought aboard. Marney and Kirksey were never seen after the crash. "We knew the ship would sink any minute, so we decided to swim for an island we knew was near by. Bangkok Raided By American Bombers , U. S. 14TH AIR FORCE HEADQUARTERS, CHINA, Jan. 13 (UP) American Liberator bombers, sfrik-ing deep into Jap "home" territory from secret bases in China, raided the island of Formosa for the second time Tuesday night and followed that attack with their first blow of the war at the Siamese capital of Bangkok, a communique said today. Striking across the South China Sea without escort, the big Liberators dropped 12 tons of high explosives and incendiaries on a vital Japanese aluminum plant at Takao, on the southwest coast of Formosa, setting big fires throughout the target area. Radio Tokyo, announcing the raid yesterday, said that the bombers also hit Ensui, SO miles vorth of Takao. and indicated they may have feinted toicard the mam Jap islands. 800 miles further north, to throw off the Jap defenses. Less than 24 hours after the Tuesday night raid on Formosa, the Liberators struck 1500 miles to the southwest at Bangkok, giving that blacked -out satellite capital its first taste of the air power gathering in China. Mr. Gellaghart "Good book, this! I enjoyed the last chapter especially. Typical Gallagher & Burton's ending? Mr. Burton: get it you mean 'alTs ueirr 62 Grain Neutral Spirits, 86.8 Prl Cut PT Boat in Half "WE HAD TO GET THEM BACK." explained Lt. John F. Kennedy, son of the former U. S. ambassador to England, when questioned about his heroic actions in saving all but two of his crew after a jap destroyer rammed his PT Boat in the South Pacific. He's now home on a 30-day leave. Four hours later I arrived with Mc-Mahon on a tiny island about 100 yards in diameter surrounded by reefs, but most important no Japs. He Towed Shipmate Lt. Kennedy towed McMahon through the water for four hours by putting the strap of his lifebelt between his teeth. Soon all survivors got together on the island, which they called Bird Island and where they lived on coconut milk and the meat of the birds. "I was always thirsty," Lt. Ken nedy continued. "Guess I drank quite a bit of saltwater. Somehow I couldn't get pineapple juice out of my mind, and at the time would willingly have given a year's pay for one can of it. When there was no more food on Bird Island, we moved to another slightly larger island and it was doing the crossing of this island that Ensign Ross and I came upon a small box with Jap anese writing, we found it con tained about 40 small bags of crackers and candy. But what was much more important we also found a one-man canoe and a barrel of water near by. We also saw a canoe Chase Bank Pleads Innocent of Charges NEW YORK, Jan. 13 (UP) The Chase National Bank, through a vice president, Emmet F. Smith, pleaded not guilty in Federal Court today to indictments charging it with violating the Trading with the Enemy and the Export Control Acts. Judge Henry W. Goddard set Feb. 1 as a tentative date for trial. The bank was indicted yesterday with Leonard J. A. Smit, Dutch refugee and international industrial diamond dealer, in connection with Smit's allegedly illicit sales of industrial diamonds to Axis countries. Donald MacKinnon, one of the Chase attorneys, said there might be some delay in bringing the case to trial because one of the bank's most important witnesses, a former officer, is in Spain on government business. Long Illness Is Fatal To Angelo Clements Angelo Clemente, of 35 Verna Dr., Shaler Twp., died yesterday at his home following a lingering illness. Born in Italy, Mr. Clemente came to Pittsburgh in 1909 and had lived in the Millvale district for 12 years.

"When we returned home the two natives were there and Ensign Thorn had convinced them that we were Americans and not Japs. From that minute they helped us tirelessly. "I scrawled a message on a coconut shell and had one of the natives take it by canoe to Rendova. Seven days after the ramming of our PT boat we were rescued." "Then you are a hero," I said and Lt. Kennedy looked reproachfully at me as he answered, "The job of a PT boat officer is to take the men out there and just as important to bring them back. We took them out we just had to get them back." I talked to Mrs. McMahon this afternoon and with tears in her eyes and a shaky voice she said, "When my husband wrote home, he told me that Lt. Kennedy saved the lives of all the men and everybody at the base admired him great ly. I wrote and told Lt. Kennedy that "I suppose to you it was just part of your job, but Mr. McMahon was part of my life and if he had died I don't think I would, have wanted to go on living." TURKEY NAMES CHIEF-OF-STAFF 'New Move Towards War' Believed Indicated By ELEANOR PACKARD United Press Staff Writer ISTANBUL, Jan. 13 The ap pointment of Gen. Kazim Orbay as Turkish chief-of-staff brought re newed speculation today that Turkey may be planning to enter the war on the side of the Allies this spring. Orbay, 50, and considered as the ablest and most modern among the younger Turkish generals, was ap pointed by President Ismet Inonu to succeed Marshal Fevzi Chakmak, who retired on reaching the age limit. Inevitable Step to War Both Turkish and Allied circles had believed appointment of Orbay would be an inevitable step in any Turkish preparations for war. Chamak was one of the few lead ing Turks who unalterably opposed Turkey's entry into the war with the Allies, according to Allied diplomatic circles. He objected, it was said, on grounds that Turkey was not sufficiently equipped to oppose a German mechanized army, even with the help of Allied aviation and other specialists. Cario Trip Recalled Speculation that Turkey intended to join the Allies was touched off originally by Inonu's trip to Cario last month to confer with President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill and other Allied leaders, but lately had dwindled. Turkey possesses excellent air bases for attacks throughout Southeast Europe and could provide a springboard for an Allied invasion of the Balkans, either across the land bridge of Thrace or across the Black Sea. Miller Will Probated Henry R. Miller, Nineteenth Ward, left an estate worth $40,200 which he disposed of in his will admitted to probate yesterday. Under its provisions the estate goes to his 'children, George L. Miller and Agnes M. Knowlson. He named his wife, Elizabeth Miller, the beneficiary but she preceded him in death. The will was dated August 10, 1933. Mr Miller died Christmas.

Oliver baby rescued from a fire, and an East End woman over come by smoke. The fire victim was Mrs. Clara Flohr, 11 Joslyn St., who died at Scpith Side Hospital yesterday of burns suffered when her clothing caught fire from an open grate. Her husband, John, 83, who beat out the names in her clothing in a vain attempt to save her life, was treated for burns on the hands and leg and for shock. Two Houses Afire Firemen battled flames nearly three hours early today before bringing a fire under control after it had swept two houses at 147 and 149 Wabash Ave., West End. The fire was discovered in the home at 147 Wabash Ave., occupied by the families of J. Stein and Thomas Nelson, which included four small children. The second alarm was sounded when the fire spread to the adjoining home of Joseph Wess, 77, who was rescued from the house unharmed with his wife, Anna, 79. Fire Chief John H. Grimm of Mt. Oliver put on a gas mask and fought his way through fire and smoke to rescue one-year-old Dennis O'Reilly from a crib on the sec ond floor of the Frank O'Reilly home at 220 Moye PI., yesterday. The child was carried out unhurt, and his two brothers Frank, 5, and Jimmy, 4 were brought from the home by their mother, who was washing clothes irt the basement when the fire occurred. Old Mansion Ruined Mrs. Emma Quirk, 67, was taken to Shadyside Hospital after being overcome by smoke when fire swept a three-story frame-house at 5509 Broad St., East End.'4 Mr. and Mrs. Charles Lowrey and their two small children, Marjorie and Charles, who also occupy the building, were driven out in their night clothes. Fire almost ruined the old Bald- ridge mansion in North Braddock, whose halls had known the tread of most of, the great industrialists who made Pittsburgh a steel center. Built in 1863 by John Baldridge, coal baron and construction man. the house had been unoccupied since the death of his widow 20 years ago, but was kept unchanged, just as she left it. U.

A considerable number of units will be retained in training for over seas duty but supporting coastal de fense and available in case of emergency," the announcement said. 1 "Now that the battlefronts have moved farther from our borders and we, have taken the offensive it would be a waste of manpower to maintain the same number of troops in this country m static defense positions," it was explained.

AMADIO "He liked to fight" Sgt. Amadio Wiped Out Two Machine-Gun Nests' Before He Fell GREENSBURG, Pa.. Jan. 13 (Special) Marine Gunnery Sgt. Domenick Amadio's fighting career lasted only 15 minutes on Tarawa, but before he died under, enemy machine-gun fire, the Japs found him a "one-man army." For Set. Amadio, 24, picked off several Japs with his rifle, then blasted two machine-gun nests with hand grenades and almost wiped out a third before he was killed, according to delayed war dis patches. "He liked to fight, commented a brother, Avation Cadet Joseph Amadio, home in Jeannette on a leave from training camp in New Mexico. He Liked Marines "And he liked being a Marine," contributed Sgt. Amadio's widow, Mrs. Mildred Amadio, of 615 Sidney St., "he wanted to make the Marines a career." Sgt. Amadio. former painter and amateur boxer, started his battle with the Japs as his landing boat drew near Tarawa, the dispatches reported. Climbing up on the forward ramp, he started banging away with his rifle, and kept it blazing until time to abandon the boat and dash over the coral to Betio Beach. When he reached the beach, the dispatches said, he went after one machine gun nest with hand grenades and wiped it out. He attacked another, and knocked it out. While he prepared to hurl a grenade into a third, a volley of machine gun bullets cut him down. Never Saw His Son "He never got to see our son, Dennis Daniel," said Mrs. Amadio. Dennis was born in November, 1942, two months after his father went overseas. Sgt. Amadio enlisted October, 1940. In August, 1941. he married "the girl back home."

Vii1iilyilyilylii1(i"y'1yiyii Burma Offensive ALLIES PUSHING TOWARDS AKYAB British Unit Fights Way Into Open Country By HAROLD GUARD United Press Staff Writer NEW DELHI, Jan. 13 A British Home Counties regiment of Adm. Lord Louis Mountbatten's 14th Army has driven into open country southeast of captured Maungdaw on the western coast of Burma and is pushing down the Mayu Peninsula toward Akyab, 56 miles to the south. The British Veterans of last winter's futile Burma campaign, who established themselves astride the strategic Maungdaw - Huthidaung highway yesterday, were reported wiping out enemy pockets of resistance near the village of Kanyindan. Akyab Is Goal The British offensive, aimed at reaching Akyab before the start of the rainy season, captured Maungdaw, 30 miles south of the main Bengal-Burma frontier, after weeks of hand-to-hand jungle fighting climaxed by a point-blank artillery duel which blew the Jap guns sky high. Burmese natives had helped British sappers lay trails across the paddy fields to within 200 yards of the village after entrenched enemy resistance ruled out using main roads. Important Supply Point Mountbatten's forces found Maungdaw, a fishing village, important as a possible port for receiving supplies from the Allied base of Cox's Bazar, 60 miles to the north, bombed and shelled almost out of existence. Last winter's British offensive was thrown back by superior Jap forces 10 miles south of Maungdaw. SIX JAP CARGO SHIPS BLASTED PEARL HARBOR, Jan. 13 (UP) U. S. Navy and Army Liberator bombers sank two of six small cargo vessels, damaged the other four and damaged four grounded Jap planes in their latest raids on Jap shipping and installations in the Marshalls. The three raids,, announced by Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, brought to 17 the number of announced attacks by Army and Navy planes against the islands since start of the year. Navy search Liberators caught the six cargo vessels near Kwajalein Island in the Kwajalein Atoll Tuesday, sinking two and damaging the others in a low level daylight attack. The raiding Liberator group also attacked shore installations at Kwajalein, setting afire several buildings. No fighter oppositoin was en countered. Liberators of the Seventh Army Air Force, bombed Taroa Islet in the Maloelap Atoll Monday night, setting fires and wrecking planes on the ground.? Earlier in the evening, other Army liberators bombed Mill Atoll with unannounced results. The Japs carried out nuisance raids at Tarawa, on New Britain, Sunday night, and at Makin and Abemama in the Gilberts Monday night without inflicting damage. f 3 nevi STAR Liver Sausage Is Rich In Vitamins, Minerals and Proteins-Easy on Meat Points Here's the spready kind of liver sausage with the wonderful flavor that's popular everywhere!
