2A MMH BEACON JOURNAL Sunday, July 25, 13M .Russia Hurrying To ean Japan 9J Trade Lure May Be Enticing Know Nippon Needs Help v keyes beech Brirnn Journl-Chlrt DmilT N(wi Wlr TOKYO Shooting wars lor Ihe control of Asia may bo ovpr hut a greater and potentially far more dangerous Communist offensive is already under way. IYiping and' Moscow didn't wait until the guns cooled In Indochina to launch a political-economic campaign aimed at Mparating the United States from what many observers regard as Us only major ally in Asia Japan. It was obvious today that Peiping and Moscow, having elbowed the United States out of Indochina, are bent on no ing the same thin1! in Japan-but without shooting. What's more, offiHal and un official observers agreed, they stand a better than fair chance of success. THE TIPOFF to the Com munist strategy came three rinvs ntro in Moscow when Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei I.Vishinsky spoke honeyed words to a visiting Japanese Diet delegation. Vlshinsky told the Japanese that Russia wanted to establish formal diplomatic relations with Japan and generally improve relations between the two countries. Hut even before diplomatic relations are established, Vishinsky said, Russia wanls to establish trade and cultural re-la"ons. Japan doesn't care a cocoon about Communist culture but It cannot live without trade. And the main fact of life In Japan today is that this coun try is caught In a rapidly developing economlo crisis with vastly Increased foreign trade tho only cure for lis sickness. relting and Moscow are just s aware of Japan's economic plight as Japan itself. And Ihey can be counted on to exploit it for" all it is worth. Observers consider the next nix months especially critical.

Crowd Jams Church At Lit Anil's Weddinglj NEW YORK CB-A crowd of 1,500 packed St. Raphael's Church and overflowed onto the sidewalk to watch the wedding Saturday of Lu Ann Simms, 22-year-old television singer on the Arthur Godfrey show, to Loring Buzzell, 26 a New York mnslf nnhllshpr. ' The bride, wearing a white wedding gown of Parisian lace and nylon tulle, was weeping as she returned down the aisle and her new husband paused on the steps of the church to pat away her tears with his handkerchief. "I'm bo happy, so happy," sl e murmured and then, as friends shouted their good wishes and waved, she smiled and called "Thank you, thank you." She kissed her new In laws, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Buzzell of Long Reach, N. Y., and hug ged her friends from the God frey show, the Maguire sisters and Frank Tarker, who attended. WHILE AMERICAN think ing on Asia still Is dominated by military considerations, Pei-ping and Moscow are talking about trade and peace. Nothing could have more appeal to war-weary Asia, particularly Japan. According to tho Japanese press the grow ing number of suicide can he jMf laid io economic cuusr. ii-r living high off the hog during the Korean war boom, Japan Is now undergoing stern deflation. Even staunchly anti-Communist Japanese doubt if they will be able to resist Communist trade lures much longer. A POLICE detail held back the crowd, mostly women and young girls. The newly mar ried couple climbed into a black limousine. Her father, Aldredge Ciminelli, of Rochester, N. Y., patted her arm and her mother stood on the sldewa'k weeping happily with the of honor, Buzell's younger sister, Barbara Ann. Onlookers knocked on the car's window to get her attention and cameras clicked by the dozen. At last, the police got a path cleared In front of the car and the couple sped off to a small family reception. THE 15-MINUTE ceremony was performed by "Father Bob," as both families call the Rev. Robert Perrella. The couple knelt at the foot of the al tar rail, since Buzzell is not a Catholic, and exchanged their vows. Alan Peppe of Long Beach, a lifelong frlei.d of the bridegroom, was best man. The four ushers included Lu Ann's two brothers, Donald and John; TV singing star Merv Griffin and Frank Rohr, a friend of Buz-zell's. Following the reception, the couple will spend a few days at the Long Island seashore, taking a delayed honeymoon to Hawaii in September.

F. Goodrich at Cincinnati and U. S. at New York. Shcppards' Coast Trail Followed California Visit Probed CLEVELAND (.?) While a coroner's inquest here marked time, two investigators today followed the trail of a California visit Dr. Samuel H. Sheppard and his pretty wife Marilyn made last March. They wanted to talk with people Mrs. Sheppard visited in northern California and others the doctor associated with in southern California. It has been three weeks since the young osteopath's pregnant wife was battered to death in the bedroom of the Sheppard home in the western lake shore suburb of Bay Village. THOMAS J. FARRINO, an assistant prosecutor of Cuyahoga County, and Robert Schottke, a detective on the Cleveland police force, went first to a ranch near Monterey, where Mrs. Sheppard had been a guest. Their next destination was more than J0O miles to the south, in the Los Angeles area, where Dr. Sheppard had stayed at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Arthur Miller while taking a postgraduate course in osteopathy. They .wanted to interview Miss Susan Hayes, 23, who also was a guest at the Miller home. Miss Hayes had been a labora tory technician at the Bay View Hospital until earlier this year .lull Kill ImmmI 'Tivas Clean Sweep That Oscar Made THE 15-MAN Japanese delegation now in Moscow went there with one purpose to drum up trade. Since no diplomatic ties exist between the two countries Russia refused to sign the San Francisco peace treaty the Dietmen's visit to Moscow was Illegal, according to Japanese law. They went to Helsinki to arrange entry into Russia. But It Is significant that all members of the delegation are dyed-ln-the-wool conservatives and members of Japan'r, rulliiR Libera! party which Is generally considered liberal in name only. In going to Moscow they were reacting to pressure of popular discontent from the bottom. In Japan any political party that can deliver business will get votes. JAPAN HAS long chafed tinder American restrictions on its trade with Red China. With Ihe Indochina war over and pconomic conditions getting steadily worsj, the Japanese ran be expected to become increasingly restive. Business circles point out that last year West Germany sold $25,04)0,000 worth of good to Red China while Japan, China's neighbor, sold onlv $150,000. However, Japan-China trade took a marked upward turn In May thanks to Red bait. Japan traded China 16,500 tons of fertilizer for 5,500 tons of rice. The amount involved was trifling enough. But the Japanese were so impressed with the low price and high quality of Chinese rice,, they ordered .30,000 tons more In return for 90,000 tons of fertilizer. Last year Japan suffered a $1 billion real trade deficit. United Slates Army purchases In Japan made up for $800 million of this. But this year American procurement in Japan is being sharply cut and sizable troop withdrawals are In prospect. LOUISVILLE, Ky. CD Oscar Tierce is not a man who wastes his time. Tierce, 46, was released from the city workhouse after serving 10 days on a drunkenness charge. Suspicious guards, seeing him walk to the rear of a 20-foot stone wall enclosing the workhouse, followed. There they said they found him picking up the following workhouse equipment: A complete toilrt-tank flushing mechanism, five brass valves, a toilet-tank bulb, a soldering iron, a pair of work gloves and a pair of work shoes. Guards guessed that Tierce had thrown the items one by one over tho wall during his stay in the workhouse. They quoted him as saying he had a repair job to do. Tierce was sentenced to 90 days in jail for petty larceny. THE FOURTH of the "Big Four" firms, the Firestone Tire & Rubber Co., is negotiating at Cleveland. Working conditions rather than wages are the cen tral Issue. Smaller firms, Seiberling Rubber Co. among them, also were bargaining though they were waiting for the larger concerns to decide the "pattern" of pay raises. Nor was there much change elsewhere on the labor front here at the weekend. Local 856 of the CIO United Automobile Workers let go with a statement damning Goodyear Aircraft Corp. for allegations the latter had made earlier. In it- the company was charged with trying to "break the union" and notice was given that there will be no "sellout" in the new contract the two are negotiating. THE COMPANY had charged that a union shop in its plants had not resulted In the "complete harmony promised at the time it was given. Local President John Sahay- da disclosed that the union has requested aid from the Federal Mediation Service In the bar gaining talks going on in the Mayflower Hotel.

Joseph R. Buckey baptized six grandchildren. The ceremony was in Kenmore Methodist Church where he was pastor before poor health forced his retirement In 1942. 4 Atom Bill Filibuster In Recess (Continued From Page One) IN HIS TESTIMONY at the inquest, Dr. Sheppard denied be ing intimate witn tne young technician. He said 'his wife knew Miss Hayes and had sug gested tnat he iook her up while In Los Angeles. He acknowledged that he bought the young woman a watch to replace one she lost when they. went to San Diego with friends to attend a wed ding. The two investigators also were believed to be seeking the testimony of Mrs. Dorothy Sha-bala, at whose home Miss Hayes now lives. Mrs. Shabala also had been an employe of the Bay View Hospital. MAYOR J. Spencer Houk of suburban Bay Village said Sat urday he took a lie detector test July 13 in connection with the case. The mayor and his wife were the first persons cajled by Dr. Sheppard the day of the murder. They had been friends for more than two years. Mayor Ilouk said he volunteered for the test because: "I felt it my duty and obligation to take the test for the public interest and in my continuing effort to lend every possible assistance to the authorities toward a solution of the case." Dr. Sheppard has refused to take the test. He has also re jected a suggestion that he take a "truth serum" test. Coroner Samuel R. Gerber's He was assisted by the Rev. P. C. Clark, present pastor.

A car driven by Martin Schultz, 316 Highwood av., Stow, ran Into an auto belonging to Edward Saxe Jr., 528 W. Main St., which was parked in front of his home.

The survivors included two other members of that family Mrs. Parish, who suffered a broken left collar bone and is reported in a state of shock, and a daughter Valerie, age 6, who suffered only minor abra sions. The third American among the survivors was named as Peter S. Thatcher of Stoning-ton, Conn., whose condition was described as satisfactory following removal of a small piece of metal from his left thigh. Those three were among sur-vivorn taken to Hong Kong by an amphibious U. S. Air Force plane from Clark Field in the Philippine Islands. Dulles said the attack on the Cathay Pacific commercial airliner was a "wanton" assault by the two fighter planes. He said the British government had sent word that it had ordered "a strong protest" to be made by its diplomatic representative at Peiping, the cap ital of Red China. ' IT APPEARED, however, the United States was taking a much stronger and more angry line on the incident even than the British government. The Dulles declaration said: "The United States Rovern ment takes the gravest view of this act of further barbarity for which the Chinese Commu nist regime must lie held responsible. The action to be taken by the United Slates will be subsequently announced." In the Senate. Sen. 11. Alex ander Smith, New Jersey Re publican, got unanimous con sent to interrupt the long de bate over atomic legislation to read the Dulles statement. Smith called the situation "critical." Sen. Humphrey, Minnesota Democrat, who was making a speech at the - time, said he hopes this nation "does not tol erate such conduct" and upholds its honor. REP. JUDD, Minnesota Republican, said the incident is another reason why Communist China must not be admitted to the United Nations. Calling it "the latest example of the true character of the Chinese Communist regime," Judd declared in a statement: "This is the lawless regime wp have been urged to accept into the United Nations as a peace-loving government." Judd, a member of the House foreign affairs committee, said the attack on the piano had a "hard headed" purpose. "In this case they demonstrate to the world their own power and their contempt for Ihe weakness of others, They seek to Intimidate the peoples of Asia into the belief It la useless to enter Into collective arrangements with the Western nations for aelf-defense. "They remind the European nations how vulnerable are their remaining interests in China, such as Hong Kong. In short, they are underlining the magnitude of their victory in Indochina in order to get the maximum propaganda benefit out of it." FRIVATELY officials noted that allowing for time differences between Geneva, Washington and Hong Kong, the attack had occurred a little more than 21 hours after the final Indochina peace settlements were made at Geneva and the machinery to end the shooting began to go into operation. The settlements were accompanied by Peiping and Moscow statements about how this proved the peace-loving disposition of the Red regimes. Dulles made clear at a news conference Friday that the American Government considers this is propaganda talk and that nothing basic in Communist behavior has changed. Apparently he feels that the shooting down of the plane proves the point. Again Heads Secretaries Photo on Page 3 B Lilyan Miller, 651 Blaine av., has been elected to a second term as president of the National Secretaries Association. She was reinstalled at a banquet Saturday night. The association's convention was held Thursday through Saturday in the Waldorf-Astoria, New York City.

However, it takes the vot of the two-thirds of the Senate membership, or 64 votes, to put cloture Into effect, and thera seemed to be slight prospect that the GOP leadership could muster that many votes. No effort to invoke cloture under the present two-thirds rule has been successful since its adoption in 1949. THE MARATHON session came to an end just before midnight after running continuously, except for one brief interruption, since 10 a. m. on Wednesday.
