Y., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1953' 5 CENTS PER COPY U.S. Prepares to Ask Debate In UN 011 Red Atrocities in > Korea; New Evidence Expected - By RICHARD-WITKIN UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (IP) —United States officials today'be- gan^drafting- an 'official request for debate on Communist" atrocities in Korea,before the United Nations General Assembly. It was .expected'to be ready in final form for consideration next week by the Steering Committee of the General Assembly. Committee approval, expected next Monday, would send the matter before the full assembly. The atrocity debate request was being prepared as the United States and Russia geared, for a earlier American charge that the Communists operated a Russian- directed torture mill to extract phony germ - war confessions from captured American fliers. The two main antagonists on the issue introduce^ Monday by Dr. Charles W. Mayo were listed to speak shortly after the Main Poli- .tical Committee, meets at 10:30 a.m., EST. Mayo, an American delegate to .the U. N., produced documents to show that fliers were subjected to mental and physical tortures to induce them to say, the United States engaged in germ warfare. New Evidence He was expected to offer he\v evidence today. The physician is a member of the famous family of doctors that founded the Mayo Clinic. • •Feeling on the new atrocity charges ran high as the United States and Russia preparad to offer arguments in the germ-war matter. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. said: "I ca'n't find sufficient words to express my horror at what was .done." The documented report .on Korean atrocities was released by the Army in Washington oh.Wed- nesday. The 87-page record of bestiality, supported by photographic evidence, charged that at least 6,113 United States servicemen had been starved,- tortured or murdered by Communist forces during the Korean war. Congress Better Conglessional reaction to- the report was widespread and bitter. Sen. Lester C. Hunt fD-Wyo.) said he was "hopeful the U. N. would come up with .a resolution of censure." He added that Communist China- has just put "another nail in her coffin" insofar as getting into the U. N,. is concerned. But he said the atrocities do not justify reopening the Korean battlefronfe Rep. Laurie C. Battle (D-Ala.,) a member of the House Foreign Affsp's Committee, said the U.N shot:' i get on record with, a formal reaction to the atrocity report which should provide the basis for future U, N. policies. He'call- ed the documented report "shocking." Sen. Mike Mansfield (D-Mont.) in a letter to Lodge, urged that the U. N. try to punish the Communist criminals responsible . for the "cold - bloode'J programs of torture." Flood Control Decision to Be Sought Nov. 23 JAMESTOWN' - Residents of Chautauqua county will be called upon next mbntlr to approve or reject a $1,540,000 project which has probably aroused more ire .than any other subject in the county's recent history and which has been in the making for 40 years. U. S. Army engineers of the- Pittsburgh District will be in Jamestown Nov. 23 to open a ss- ries of hearings designed to settle once and for :ali whether the county is to receive federal subsidy for an inter - lake canal to connect Lakes Chautauqua and Erie and to handle Chautauqua Lake and Cha- dakoin River flood - control problems. ..-• .;••'.• .• ,. ,' :. . Assemblyman E. Herman Magnuson divulged Wednesday that ha had arranged a meeting in Jamestown's City Council chambers for Nov. 23 at which time county residents will have an opportunity to decide if they wish to accept the project which twice has besn ao- proved by Congress while county organizations and municipali- tiss waxed hot and cold. Canal Dam Envisaged The project was launched first about 1014 before construction o.° the present Warner Dam which controls the level of Chautauqiui Lake in the Chadakoin River at Jamestown, l-i the intervening years the project was discussed first as a hydro - electric venture utilizing the rapid . fall between Chautauqua Lake and'Lake Erie then as an exclusively - designed flood- - control project. The project as approved by Congress in 1950 includes: 1—Construction of a diversion canal from Chautauqua Lake at . Mayville to Lake Erie near Westfield to draw off excess flood waters from the Chautauqua watershed. 2—Construction of a fixed - level dam or weir at Hartfield at. the mouth of the Little Inlet to establish the level of Chautauqua Lake for all time .at a maximum of 1308.6 feet above sea level. Excess water above that level would spill over the dam into the canal which would follow the routes of the Little Inlet and the Litf.'o Chautauqua Creek into Lake Eire. Fixed Level Limits . . 3—Major repairs to Warner I>am oresent sole regulating device for the Cautauqua Lake,level,- 4—Establishment of a lake operating schedule utilizing Warner Dam to keep the lake within fixed level limits of 1308.6 feet in Summer and 1306 feet in Winter creating a reservoir for thfi spring run - off of flood waters from the lake watershed. • a—Possible lowering of, the water" intake at Jamestown's municipal electric • plant to assure a , constant flow of water for cooling of power • generating turbines. When the project reached its fi nal stages in 1949, a wave of opposition arose headed by Melviu Swanson then a local engineer ,and now chairman of the 'Chadakoin River Commission. . Surge Of Support ' This opposition included resolu- . tions of condemnation by the Jamestown "City Council the' County Board of Supervisors and nearly every town and village board in the lake region as weir as by most sportsmen's and lake - shore organizations. Then, at a public hearing on Feb. 10, 1950, ^opposition was virtually solid. The weeks following the hearing, however, saw a surge of public support, for the project which culminated in a reversal by the Board of Supervisors. City Council and many organizations, Then, with opposition virtually eliminated, Congress failed to appropriate' funds . for* the Droject which'it had twice approved. Next month's hearings are expected to determine; finally, whether the project will be submitted to Congress for final approval or whether it shall be scrapped for all time, Assemblyman Magnuson said. Asked State to Take Hand "Had. it not been for the wave of false opposition three years ago." he declared, "the project would be' well underI way, '. if not completed, by now." Only recenty, the Chadakoin River Commission asked New York State to take a hand in operation of Warner Dam to relieve local interests of the responsibility of controlling the lake level. To dale, the Federal Government has sp'^nt $45,000 in plans and test borings for the proposed project. Cost .to the county would be limited to a share in th'e cost of right - of - way, officials studying the project have • said. The right- of-way would run chiefly through a swampy lowland, skirting the international water divide between Mayville and Westfield.

(IP) — An F-100 Super Sabre jet fighter unveiled to the public only last week has set a new world'-s speed record of 754.98 miles v an hour over a 15 - kilometer, course. * The North American Aviation Company's jet made two runs over the Salton Sea course Thursday, one at-767.267 miles per hour and the other at 742.684. The Super Sabre's speed topped that of the Douglas Skyray by about 1.5 miles per hour, N.orth American spokesmen said. It..bettered the previous time over a 15 .r kilometer course by more than 45 miles an hour, and will be listed as a record for that distance , as well as the fastest time ever made by a plane under speeU conditions of the National Aeronautical Association. Lt. 'Col. F. K. Pete - Everest, chief test pilot at Edwards .Air Force Base, was at the controls. Bertram! Rhine, National Aeronautics Association timer, said the record - breaking time \vill be submitted for confirmation to the Federation Aej-onautique Inter- nationale in Paris. : North American unveiled the Super Sabre last week as the only American supersonic operationall plane to be turned out an an assembly line basis. The aircraft plant was struck three days after the announcement ai* i currently is shut down at Los Angeles. Control of Elm Disease, Topic Of Entomologist /I' preserve our ornamental elms, from-the Dutch elm dis ease, 'we must eliminate the breeding places of the European beetle," said Professor Aubrey H. MacAndrews, head of the entomology ^department of the State University of New York College of Forestry, at a recent public meeting held in Syracuse to point out control measures for the disease. "The disease whicn kills our .beautiful elm's is caused by a fungus which is carried from tree to tree by the beetles," he said. "The brownish, little insects no larger than' tHe- point of a pencil, breed profusely, some trees having ovr 60,000 of them". The'spread of the disease was traced by Dr. Howard Miller extension, entomologist at the forestry college. He charted its advance in New York State and particularly in the Syracuse area. He noted for example, that: whereas ,only one tree was affected by the disease in -Syracuse in 1951 over thirty stricken trees were, found in 1953. "Unless control measures are taken," says. Dr. Miller, "any New York State community ma> experience the same trouble." William Ozard of the State De partment of Agriculture arid Mar kets stressed the importance o 'fall sanitation. "To eliminate th< breeding places of ths beetles' Ozard said "care must be taken now to .either burn all old elm wood and slash or peel the bark from the logs and burn it or spray the ,old wood with a three per cent emulsion of fuel oil and'DDT or at least bury the wood to a depth of six inches or more." Retired Pastor's Mission Work is Being Carried on A news note'in the press last week aroused memories of the Rev. Ed Calvin Clarke -retired Methodist pastor now residing in Fredonia, but previously pastor in Forestville, and State Line. Buffalo newspapers reported that the City Mission at 85 Broadway has removed the old oil paintings that were a part of Fenton's Pekiri restaurant, once a gay Buffalo resort. The old paintings had . cracked and could not be restored, the Rev. William Barkalow, superintendent said. A brightening coat of paint was applied.-The big Chinese style chandelier had previously been sacrificed for modern lighting. In earlier days,; the Rev. Mr. Clark, with .the assistance of Buffalo business men, purchased the Pekin property for $42,000 and transformed the "den of iniquity" into a place for restoring down and outers to useful lives. The present superintendent reports the support for the mission and attendance at its functions are at a peak. Last winter the mission fed. an average of 95 persons every night. Anti-Reds' Promise to Listen Conditioned 011 Hearing for Demands Refused by NNRC By JAMES MORRISSEY PANMUNJOM, Korea IIP) —The :nclian chairman of the Neutral Nations Repatriation Commission announced today that 7.800 anti - Communist North Korean 3risoner.s had agreed to face Red 'interviewers Saturday. A spokesman for Chairman Lt. G_en. K. S.'' Thimayya said t Ire United Nations and Communist commands had been , notified the prisoner-interviews -would resume at 8 a. m. Saturday (6 -p. m. EST, Friday) after almost two weeks' delay. Demands First However, there was one stumbling block. The North Koreans agreed to listen to "explanation" :alks by their former Red masters only after they had presented "certain demands" to the neutral commission, and the commission refused to meet with the prisoners. Thimayya told correspondents today that the North Koreans are coming out fdr explanations to morrow." Thimayya first told the prisoners they could present their case to the commission. But the com- mission then refused the face - lo- face meeting .with the Koreans, who hav^e stalled the prisoner 'interview program for 13 davs. "I don't, know what will happen," Thimayya said after the commission turned down the prisoners' request. "But I hope they will attend the explanations." "We have been trying to get them to attend the explanations, but they put up certain de,* mands," Timayya said. , "They said they wished to • put their demands up to the NNRC and the world press." Postpone Investigation The neutral commission mesni while postponed until Saturday it's on - the - spot investigation of the murder of a Communist uribone'r, in one of the Indian - guarded coirif pounds. The commission has adj- mitted four prisoners were ,murdered in the anti • Communist 'enclosures. Thim'ayya prepared to go on the assumption the prisoners, still would meet the R'ed pabi'jj- sion officers Saturday. He said-the Communists had asked for 500 *nti - Red Koreans '"but he ' -'Was ready to deliver-1,000.
