4 Zlt Arixtma 30at!s tar CQURT REFUSES TO VACATE TRIAL Charles Smith Held By District Court On Mann Act Charge Charles B. Smith, 56, who insists that his name Is "Arthur Curtiss .Tames Jr.." failed , yesterday in a legal move to vacate his trial date of February 13 on a charge of transporting a woman in interstate commerce for Immoral pur poses and to have his case re- moved from u. ft. uisinci ujuh here to the district of southern California. Having filed his motions In a four-page, meticulously nana-iei-tered document In duplicate, filled with legal phraseology, he was taken from the FJma County jail yesterday to face Judge Albert M Sames and argue his points. The lengthy document was signed. "Arthur Curtis James Jr., In propria persona. "You are the author of this In utrument that was sent to the court?" demanded Judge Sames "Yes, Your Honor," the prisoner responded, and launched Into a dis cussion of the case. He said his witnesses, who knew the reasons for his trip from Cali fornia to Arizona last November, are in Tds Angeles, and that he cannot hire a lawyer In Tucson, as his property is in Southern California. The prisoner wanted to hire his own lawyer and ex pressed opposition to having the court appoint one. Mishandled Proceedings' Smith declared that in his last ease a court-appointed lawyed mishandled his pleading?, with the re-ult that he had to serve five years In the penitentiary. Judge Sames checked his voluble arguments, and said that the could not be removed. When Smith said he wanted witnesses, the Judge suggested that a lawyer be appointed, so that the processes be properly handled. The prisoner finally acquiesced. As he was led away through the corridor, he a.ked K. Berry Peterson, assistant U. S. attorney, If the government would accept a nolo contendere plea. When arraigned In court January 22, ,he said he was going to hire counsel of his own, but being brought back January 29 he admitted he had been unable to do o. and entered a plea of innocent. Yesterday he did not mention his "three mining claims In Cochise County containing a very valuable metal beryllium," which he had talked about the day of his original appearance before C. Wayne Clampltt, IT. S. commissioner, last November 18. Material Witness The woman in the case. Geraldine Ann Gllllg, 10. of Los Angeles. Is held as a material witness. Smith persuaded a Los Angeles Judge to release her from Jsll before explra. tlon of her term on a charge of petty theft, and after Introducing, her around Hollywood with hints that h would find work for her and her e ister as models, persuaded her to come with him to Tucson, where they took a room at a local hotel, she 'testified at the commissioner's hearing. H was arrested after he tried to buy her a pair of shoes In a local store, with a suspicious check. Another check Involved was one In thi amount of $"0,000. In favor of Miss Gllllg, which Smith offered hr "If she would be his wife for a week," an FBI man testified. The agent said that Smith has spent the greater part of his life In prison and was then on parole from Folsom prison, California. Many times In the proceedings here Smith has been asked if his true name Is "Arthur Curtiss James Jr.," and he insisted that It Is. lie Is so listed in the official record In th case. "Who's Who In America" does not mention any children In its biographies of Arthur . Curtiss James, the late capitalist and railroad magnate. FIRST ARMY RETURNS AS BRADLEY FORCE (Conllnned From Page One) placed American forces under British control for specific operations, such as the final breakthrough in Tunisia in 1943 and the original Normandy landings. It has been his policy, however, 10 keep Americans under American control and British under British control whenever possible because of the conflict of terms of language, supply difficulties and fundamental differences in military training. Months before the breakthrough there was talk of placing another American army in Montgomery's 21st Army group, which has been an armv group almost in name only. The British Second and Canadian First Annies put together would form pnlv one large army.

Basic Science Issue At the senate hearing pn the basic science examinations, ,Dr. Hartman contended the whole idea originated in the American Medical Association to keep out competition and prevent certain healer groups from getting in, but has acted as "a boomerang and kept out some of their own men." Dr. J. D. Hamer, Phoenix, chairman of the public policy committee of the Arizona Medical Association, objected to the statement about competition. Only one of the 15 doctors in the senate chamber, had taken the basic science test, Senator d'Autre-mont learned on questioning them. Dr. J. C. Chapman, Phoenix, osteopath, said he spent a year preparing to take it, but felt the test was fair. Doctors in the. various profes sions of healing said their own ex amining boards had had almost nothing to do since the basic sci ence board was set up. Dr. C. i. Towne, Tucson, so testified. Dr. Hamer said there were instances of persons sidestepping individual professional boards, so the basic science tests are needed. Doctor It Questioned "Why don't you let the legislature protect the people against chiropractors and others and you protect the public from poor doctors in your own examining board?" asked Senator d'Autremont of Dr. Hamer. Sen. W. II. Hathaway, Santa Cruz, asked why each of the professions did not incorporate in board exam inations what each felt Is necessary by way of basic science subjects. No one answered. Temporary licensing also came under fire. Dr. J. H. Patterson, Phoenix, was questioned by Senator d'Autremont as "to how you get around basic science examina tions in that." The physician re plied that the attorney general had ruled it could be done. "So an attornev general's ruling supersedes the law?" asked the Pima senator, turning to Dr. Ches ter II. Smith, secretary of the basic science examining board at the Uni versity of Arizona, to ask if he knew of such a ruling, Dr. Smith said he did not. Tucsonans At Hearing Dr. Patterson said the board de termines when an emergency exists in a community requiring temporary licensing of a physician. Senator Bixby said some medical so cieties "might be hoggish and even If an emergency does exist, let no one in." The physician replied: "I hope not." The senate committee said Its sole Interest Is to determine wheth er the basic science law protects the health and safety of the public. If it finds the law good, it may be sngntiy changed and, if bad, repealed. Other Tucsonans attending were Doctors Dan L. Mahoney, C. A. Thomas, R. L. Nugent of the University, and E. I. Agnew.

Sames in U. S. District Court denving a writ of habeas corpus which would have halted the prosecution, Clampitt filed yes-terday a petition for a certificate r .u.Mi much fnr anneal. The two accused men appeared in Superior Court yesterday afternoon for arraignment before Judge William G. Hall, but did not enter a plea.- Upon Clampitt's informing Judge Hall of the move toward an appeal, the arraignment was set over to February 17. To Be Heard Monday Argument on the petition for a certificate of probable cause will be heard next Monday in U. S. District Court. ' Clark, a special officer in the Indian Service, and Harding, a state liquor control agent, came under prosecution after it became known that Lewis had apparently suffered a gunshot wound during a struggle December 23, when the officers attempted to search him for liquor. Thev stopped a wagon being driven by Percv Lewis's stepfather, Jose Lewis, as it left a parking lot in Tucson, and searched the elder Lewis, Virden Ramon, also rjding on the wagon, and the vehicle itself. ' - According to -the version of the two officers, the younger Lewis drew a knife and sprang from the wagon to attack Clark. A scuffle ensued, and Lewis was taken to rthe county jail. County Attorney J. Mercer Jonnson later iuea criminal charges against the two men. Lewis has since been confined to an asylum as insane. In an effort to halt the prosecution, the officers appealed to the federal court for a write of habeas corpus, stating that they were in good faith enforcing the laws of the United States when the Lewis episode occurred. Lewis apparently was drunk, and they made the search in order to seize any liquor vhlrh micht be taken onto the, San Xavier Reservation, they told Judge Sames. Petition Denied Their petition for a writ was denied, and Judge Sames ruled that they did not have reason to sus-np-r that. Honor was about to be introduced into the Indian coun try, and ordered them to be remanded to state authorities. The latest petition for a certificate of probable cause is based upon their contention that they were, in fact, justified in making the search for liq'uor. Also, even if they were not tecnnicany- jusunea In searching the wagon and the Tnrlians. a writ of habeas corpus should nevertheless issue, if they were acting in good faith, believing thev were enforcing the laws, it is urged. , RUSSIANS TAKE TOWN 32 MI. FROM BERLIN (Continued From Page One) cross the ice broke through and sank." "The Russians have not been able to make much progress in bridgeheads farther north on the Oder." This disclosure by the Germans of crossings farther north, although it did not locate them "specifically, indicated the Russians might be even less than 30 miles from Berlin. With the capture of Gorltz and other communications centers along the Oder, the Russians won a firm grip on all railroads and highways east of the Oder. Schaumberg Captured Another captured town, Schaum-berg, is three and one-half miles northwest of Kustrln, the closest approach to that city officially announced by the "Russians, although the .Germans have reported Kustrin under fierce assault. German accounts of the war on the eastern front gave the Red army control of nearly all of the Oder's east bank, winding 350 miles southward from the Baltic port of Stettin to Ratibor near the Czechoslovak border. The Moscow bulletin ignored large sectors of this front, notably that southeast of Stettin in Pom-erania and that in Silesia, where the Germans asserted Marshal Ivan S. Konev's First Ukraine Army has established at least half-a-dozen bridgeheads. After a plane from which he had alighted had continued its journey, a Wellington, New Zealand, business man found he had left $4,S00 aboard, so a radio message was sent to the pilot and the money was returned by another plane.

Thp fedpral eovernment has pledged the Boulder Canyon project to . opening of arid lands below Boulder Dam for. settlement by war veterans. The treaty is "inconsistent" with such a program. "Mexico," Warren contended, "has no equitv in the waters conserved by Boulder Dam within our borders. She has contributed nothing to the conservation of those waters. During the last two years she has rushed into production some of-these lands, which -were flooded before they were protected bv Boulder Dam. ..." Cites Tim Articles Warren also cited articles written bv Dr. Charles, A. Tim, state department representative in the treatv negotiations, to support his contention the treaty was "a departure from the usual sort of treatv designed to settle international rights or other border conditions.'. Terming water "life itself" for the west, Warren declared: "In the west, without it, life cannot exist. In these Colorado River basin states, when all the water of that river has been put to use for irrigation and domestic purposes every newcomer and every new' baby will become a threat to the safety of those already living there. . . ." MANILA LIBERATED, M'ARTHUR REPORTS (Continued From Page One) can advance into the southern half of Manila. Bilibld Penitentiary was such a filthy hole just before the war started that the Philippine government abandoned it as a penal institution, yet the Japanese confined thousands of American military and civilian prisoners in the vermin-ridden stone structure. On the western Luzon front the Americans gained complete control of the base of the Bataan peninsula, trapping any Japanese in that area. The peninsula was sealed off as the American forces from Zambales on the west jointed other Yanks coming west from San Fernando in Pampanga province. Yanks Take San Jose The Japanese in the Cagayan valley of northeast Luzon, figured at many thousand strong, were definitely sealed into that area when American troops took the town of San Jose and also captured Ealete Pass, southern doorway to the valley. MacArthur, announcing the knockout punches against 'the Manila Japanese, said "our forces are rapidly cleaning the enemy from Manila. "Our converging columns of the First Cavalry Division from the east, the 37th Infantry Division from the north and the Eleventh Airborne Division from the south, after an overnight 35-mile advance from Tagaytay, simultaneously-entered the city and surrounded the Japanese defenders. MacArthur said "two of the four bridges over the Pasig river the Quezon and the Ayala were blown up by the enemy in a futile effort to block our advance." INJURED IN FALL, ISAAC TREJO DIES Isaac Trejo, 48. 494 Convent street, father of seven, died in a Tucson Mortuary ambulance late yesterday afternoon enroute to the Thomas-Davis Clinic from the Pacific Fruit Express Ice yards. Deputy Sheriff Charles Velasco reported that Trejo died of injuries received when he fell from the loading platform above a fruit car which he was icing. Observers told Velasco that he fell first from the icing Dlatform to the ton of the freight car, and then to the ground. The nature of the fatal injuries were not announced. Funeral arrangements will be announced later by the Tucson Mortuary. Millions Switching To Mutton Suet And Medication "Old Rcliabla" For Relieving Oust .Muscle Tightness-Coughing, Rheumatic Pain, Simple Bruises and Many Other Home Uses. Grandma liked to "rub" miseries of chest colds and other pimple pain. She medicated her rub bat insisted it contain mutton suet. She liked the way mutton suet disappeared as it helped carry medication to nerve ends in skin to relieve pain. Today science has modernized Grandma's old-time pain relief principle to brinsr you Penetro, the salve that contains mutton suet plus 5 active ingredients. Mothers now thank Grandma for her old idea that created this newer relief. In this colds' season, Penetro is especially helpful in easing chest muscle tightness,, chest rawness, loosening phlegm, relieving coughs. That's because Penetro melts instantly, quickly vanishes to act 3 ways (1) To relieve pain at nerve ends in skin. (2) To ease chest muscle tightness by counter-irritation. (3) To soothe irritated breath passages through inhaled aromatic vapors. Penetro is so helpful, too, in easing rheumatic and neuralgic pain, taking sting from chapped bps and nostrils, and as a soothing dressing for bruises, minor cuts. Today get clean, white, easy-to-use Penetro. BATTLE TOUGH YANKS GIVE PRISONERS FOOD (Continued From rtge One) the clergy, including ' the Dominican faculty at Santo Tomas -University. , ' - - ' .- Some of the men prisoners had lost as much as 100 pounds. The average loss among them was 51 pounds. The average among the women was 32. pounds. The children were spindle-legged and pale. ; Other evidences of malnutrition included swollen legs and ankles. The prisoners said they had lived almost entirely on rice, camotes (resembling sweet potato roots) and garbage can salvage. . This was the largest number of Allied nationals held by the enemy anywhere in the South Pacific The delivery followed by a few days the release of more than 500, mostly American army and navy prisoners, from a camp north of Manila by army rangers and, scouts. Newspapermen Freed - Nine newspapermen were among the first internees freed. They rushed out eager for news of the world. Roy Bennett,' editor of the Manila Bulletin,- wanted to know if the Bulletin building still stood. The others were: Ford Wilkins. former Associated Press man and city editor of the Bulletin; David Boguslav, the city editor of the Manila Tribune; Allen Hammond, Reuters (British) News Agency; Robert Crabb, United Press; Theodore Rogers and McCulogh Vick of the Bulletin; Don Bell, Manila News and radio man, and Jack Percival, Sydney (Australia) Morning Herald. Three former prisoners, who had been exchanged, were back as war correspondents to report the rescue. They were Russell Brines of the-Associated Press, Royal Arch Gunnison, Mutual Radio reporter, and Carl Mydans of Life magazine. Frank Hewlett, United Press correspondent, who escaped capture by fleeing from Corregidor, was back to rejoin his wife, one of the internees. OVER 1,200 OTHERS STILL TO BE LIBERATED By RAY CROMX Chief of the Former AP Manila Bureau More than 1,200 American and other civilian prisoners of the Japanese on Luzon island and an undetermined number of . Yank military prisoners remain to be liberated by U. S. forces which have already entered the city of Manila. ,It is possible that several hundred other Allied civilians, most of them children, still remain in Japanese hands in that part of Manila south of the Pasig river. Latest available reports indicate that the Japanese still hold some 800 American and British men, plus some women, in the Los Banos camp, about 45 road miles southeast of Manila in Laguna Province. They may be liberated shortly by the Yank paratroops that landed on Tagaytay Ridge, less than 20 air miles from the camp which is located at the base of Maquiling volcano on the grounds of the Los Banos Agricultural College. Far to the north, in the Ben-guet mountains, between 200 and 400 other Americans and Britishers have been held in Camp Holmes for more than three years. This camp is near La Trinidad, north of the Baguio summer capital. Yank forces on the mountain road leading to Baguio are within 17 air miles of the camp.

OPINION ALTERS HOSPITAL RULES County Institution Must Admit Those With Low Income Is Held The Pima County Board of Supervisors must admit to the Countv Hospital all indigents and nprsnn's in low income groups who otherwise would be denied hospi talization, if they have resided m Arizona for as "long as oner year, J. Mercer Johnson, county attorney," yesterday said in an opinion to the supervisors. R, H. Martin, chairman of the board, took exception to the ruling, stating that such an interpretation of the law will result in a general demand for free hospitali zation from so many peopie inai thev cannot be cared for. Martin said he agreed with respect to the indigents, but insisted that the law provides for the discretionary admission of persons in low income groups at reduced rates. "I don't care what you believe," Johnson said, "because the law says what you must do. The law says you must admit without charge" indigents or persons in low income groups if they sign affidavits as to their financial status. The only discretion you have is to investigate the truth of their affidavits." One Year's Residence The opinion not only holds that both of these groups are entitld to free admission, but that, contrary to present procedure, a residence of only one year is required. Previously, indigents have been admitted only upon certification of the Pima County Board of Social Security and Welfare. To qualify as indigents under the state .welfare law, .persons must have resided in the state for at least three Jears. - A request for this opinion was made at a special meeting of the board held on February 29 and on motion of J. Homer Boyd, new member of the board of supervisors, who has been carrying on a vigorous campaign in behalf of liberalizing the rules of admission. At the suggestion of Supervisor G. T. Alley, Ajo member, the board adopted, a policy of having all instructions to the hospital issued by the chairman. Boyd voted for this after securing assurance that he will be consulted before any decisions are taken regarding new regulations or admission of any person whose status is in doubt. Chairman Martin introduced a resolution calling upon Congress to amend the social security laws to take in everyone, including government workers, farm workers, and servants, and to add enough of a tax on such workers to provide hospitalization no matter where they are. The motion, after (considerable discussion, was seconded by Alley, but a vote was held up until today at Boyd's request so he can see the motion in writing and decide what he wants to do about it. , The chairman said he thought the entire cost of a federal hospi-i talization program should be borne by the worker, ' adding that he could see no reason why employers should have to pay any part of the present social security tax, much less another for hospitalization. Requests by three school districts to exceed their budgets because of increases in average daily attendance were granted by the board. The districts are Amphitheater elementary, which asked for $10,500; Amphitheater high, which asKea ior ,uuu; and Flowing Wells, which asked for $1,000.

Seven Miles in Germany The Third Army drive, as much as seven miles inside Germany, sent forces on the north wing all the wav through the Westwall at a point where it is a mile and a half wide. There were few casualties. German pillbox defenders, with little fight left, quickly surrendered. t Overrun was the bunker and pillbox studded communications center of Brandscheid, which had defied assaults when the First Army invaded that area last' September. While doughboys cleared rows of pillboxes and took COO prisoners in reaching the town from the north, other forces speared on a mile east of Brandscheid to within three and a half miles of Prum. big fortified communications center supptying the Westwall. Streamed Through rrum Tt was through Prum that the main force of Germans streamed in the Ardennes breakthrough, and it was along the roads into and beyond the city that they were lashed by Allied air might as they retreated. A front dispatch said the Third Army's penetration all the way through the Westwall came four and a half miles northwest of Prum, where the doughboys drove through the dense Schnee Eifel forest. They found the permanent for-! tifications to be about a mile and j a half deep there, .and ahead of; them now were only scattered bunkers and pillboxes. Previously ! Third Army troops south of there j had been reported . about three miles from Prum. Eastward,; Push Slowed While the eastward push of the U. S. First Army, now entirely inside the Reach farther north, was slowed, a gain of nearly two miles northeastward was threatening the system of five dams by which the Germans control the water level of the Roer. main barrier to the Cologne plain. The battle of southern Alsace was drawing swiftly to a close. section of the old Vail highway. George T.
