f I R T H D AY P OUT RAIT— Crowd fathers at the Statue of Liberty In New York harbor for ceremonies marking 70th year since it was riven to America by the people of France. Monument To Americans Killed On Korean Island Fulfills Ambition NAMHAE-DO, Korea, AiP — A granite monument will be unveiled here' next 'Friday to 11 U.S. airmen who died on this South Korean Island Aug. 7, 1945—perhaps the only Americans killed in Korea during World (War U. For Kim Kuk Hyung this fulfills an 11-year-old ambition. "It is my way of repaying the United States for its fight against fear, oppression and imprisonment," he said. "This monument will always be a reminder of the goodwill between America and the Republic of Korea." Kim's dream was born the day a U.S. B24, returning from a bombing mission on the Japanese- occupied port city of Yosu, hurtled into Namhae - Do's Dangwoon Mountain, 100 miles southwest of Pusan. Kim, a minor official on the island, buried the bodies and erect- ad a wooden cross. For two years he tried unsuccessfully .to raise funds for a suitable memorial. Then he entered the pharmacy business and his fortunes improved. In 1948 and 1949 he tried to take .s-cut masons to the site but was driven off toy Communist guerrillas, then harassing the Southern Islands. When the Korean War broke out in 1950 Communists occupied the island. Kfm was imprisoned, but later escaped. After the war, Kim made a scale model of the monument. Finally the foundation was laid. Today it rises in feet high against the green Korean mountainside. "A memorial monument to 11 distinguished U.S. Flyers." It has become an epitaph to these Americans, although their bodies were removed shortly after World War Oil. '1st Lt. Edward B. Mills Jr., Cartoondale, Pa.; 2nd Lt. Ronald L.

There IS ft rend to spend more government money on -health and medical matters "because it 'Is good poll* ics,' the pi-esident of the Amer* can Medical Assn. declared here Tuesday. Dr. Dwight H. Murray of Napa, Calif., told the opening session of he House of Delegates of the AMA: "Apparently many Americans till want to see government in he role of a big brother, dishing ut so-called gifts and bargains under the guise of benevolent eco- lomic plannlna." "We do not deny," Dr. Murray aid, "that there is an area of egltlmate concern by the government for the health and welfare if the people. But each year gov- rnment seems to extend that irea. We get some Idea of this xpanslon from the new federal medical budget. "This year the average family will be paying $54.61 for the U.S. government's health and medical ctivities. And the total expend!- ures this year amount to 2% bil- lon dollars — 290 million more than last year . . . It Is a billion dollars more than the cost of run- ilng the Commerce Department, half a billion more than the Agriculture Department and six times more than the Interior Department's budget." (Warning against drifting into ;ocialized medicine, Dr. Murray aid: "I think that a nation can drift nto state medicine inch by inch ust as surely as if the scheme Were foisted upon a people overnight. The 'drift' method may ake longer, but the result will be the same. 'So it is time all of us sounded he alarm against soft and super- iclal security and against the in- asion of personal responsibility. it is time we stood up together or militant freedom and for full State Starts Annual Winter Reforestation OLYMPIA OP) — ?

' S.>!!i WORLD Mew Mid-East Crisis Rumbling By ED OBEAGH Associated Press .News Analyst WASHINGTON iffl — The Middle Ens; is short of many things, but >; never runs .out of trouble. As i! the Suez affair weren't toad "rough, a Syria crisis now is ore-wing on the edge of it. Could be a bad one, too, and another :.i:reat to world peace. The main reason: Russia unquestionably has gained a foolhold in the ancient iSyriaji desert ; Tand. Some American authorities are concerned that Syria may toe sucked .all the way into the Communist onbit. Syrja has toeen accepting arms from Russia. Also, all 'but unnoticed in the furor over Suez, pro- Soviet officers have seized formal control of Syria's 60,000-man army. It would surprise nobody if the army seized control of the government. Now add these facts: il. Syria would be the obvious staging area for the "volunteers" MBS. HAROLD ROGERS Funeral services for Louise D.

Moscow radio charged Mon day that Syria's well-heeled neigh, bor, Iraq, has 'been trying to flood Syria with arms for use in a re volt against 'the government. With a perfectly straight face, Russia denounced "subversive activities of this kind as "criminal." 3. Iraq followed through within .hours with a request to the United States for "more defensive arms' including planes and antiaircraf guns. This country has toeen send ing munitions to oil-rich Iraq bu the amounts never have been dis closed. U.S. INVOLVED There are other factors aplenty but these alone show the stored up lightning in the situation — with the United States already in volved. They indicate, too, the exten to which the camel's nose is un der the tent, to use an old deser saying. In other words, how fa: Russian penetration of the Middle East is proceeding. Trouble is nothing new to Syria which has known little else sine the days of the conquering Greeks two thousand years ago. •But trouble is the last thing the Missouri-sized country needs righ now. She's hi bad shape economical ly as a result of the crisis ove Suez — and part of 'this troubli is home-grown. With no interference from the authorities, three stations on th< pipeline running across Syria from Iraq to the Mediterranean hav been blown up — a prize exampli of cutting Off one's nose to spit Britain's face. Syria lost millions of dollars in toadly needed reve nue — she gets a rakeoff on oi flowing through the lines. She alsc cut off a major source of her own fuel. A glance at the map will show you Syria's strategic importance Turkey — which only Monday accused the Syrians of fomentini trouble with neighboring countries — lies to the north. Iraq, Jordan and Israel form a rim on the eas and south. Lebanon fits in like a jigsaw puzzle on the west, leaving Syria with a short tout vita .stretch of Mediterranean seacoas oetween Lebanon and Turkey. A handier operating 'base for the Russians would be hard to imagine. It would toe equally hard to imagine Turkey and Iraq, which could crush Syria like a nut in a cracker, standing by idly while such a thing happened — to say nothing of the reaction of the United States and Britain. ••«» • i«»ii 3 Year Picture Tube Warranty Qi> 6 Makes of TV Albert^ AM A President Warns Of'Drift' Toward Socialized Medicine rights and responsibilities of the individual." Dr. Murray urged the members of the AM A to "continue to build up the confidence and respect of our patients, and to make our legislators aware of the necessity for freedom In medical practice."

Red President Sees Hope For Release Of 10 Americans ROME (ffi — Communist China's President Mao Tze-tung was quoted Tuesday as expressing the hope that negotiations with the United States for the release of 10 Americans still held In Red China's prisons can be "favorably concluded." The weekly Tempo Revlsta published an interview between Mao and Curzio Malaparte, well-known Italian novelist and newspaperman, in Peiping earlier this month. Malaparte quoted the Chinese president as saying, after an earlier reference to Roman Catholic priests and missionaries: "Also there are many American prisoners in the jails of China. On .these last our ambassador and the ambassador of the United States hi Bern are discussing them in Geneva. Nor can I tell you what will be the result of these negotiations, since they are complicated and delicate. I hope, in any event, that it will be possible to reach a favorable conclusion." U. Alexis Johnson, U. S. ambassador to Prague, and Wang Ping-nan, Communist Chinese ambassador to Warsaw, have been meeting regularly in Geneva since Aug. 1, 1955, to negotiate release of the prisoners. Their talks have been deadlocked for most of the time. GRACE BUYS CRADDLE NICE, France W) — Princess Grace of Monaco went shopping in Nice Tuesday.

Heacox. Much of the timber salvaged was killed in the Douglas fir bark beetle epidemic which swept through 8,000,000 acres of government and privately owned fir forests in Washington and Oregon several years ago. The beetles have always been present in the forest in s m all numbers. But the population of these insects was increased In 1950 and 1951 after heavy gales .blew down large amounts of timber. The beetles bred rapidly in t h e windfalls and soon infested the standing trees. TREES GONE By -the spring of .1953 aerial photographs of the firm's tree farms showed many scattered clumps of dead and dying trees. In salvaging this timber, speed was essential. If left standing in the woods five or six years, the dead trees would begin to decay and lose valuable wood. Weyerhaeuser research scientists worked in cooperation with government agencies on methods of controlling the beetles, company foresters and logging engineers revised routine plans and went to work on a vast salvage program. They located beetle-killed timber on aerial photographs. New logging and forestry access roads were pushed into areas of undeveloped virgin timber where beetle epidemic had left its mark. Mobile logging equipment was used. Such equipment could move quickly and with comparative ease to scattered pockets of beetle killed trees. .Logging crews armed with power saws began falling the dead trees. As the beetle-killed timber toppled to the ground, light logging trucks and mobile loaders followed the falling crews. Trucks and loaders moved into the toack areas of the tree farms on the newly constructed unsurfaced forestry roads. The timtoer killed by the beetles and felled by the wind was picked up and hauled to the mill. The elephant's trunk contains more than 40,000 muscles. Railroads May Raise Rates On Some Items OLYMPIA W> — Railroads operating within the state have been granted a 6 per cent increase in rates for hauling cement and lime* stone. v In an order effective Monday, the State Public Service Commission approved the cement' rate boost but denied a similar increase on rates for shipping fresh fruits and vegetables in boxes 'and apples in bulk. The railroads contended the rate increases were' needed to offset wage raises granted employes. NEW HIGHWAY 'ROBBERY RAWL1NS, Wyo. (XP) — James A. Harmon, 57, of Walla Walla, Wash., reported •to'Officers he. was roibbed of $90 Monday when he stopped on U.S. Highway 30 to aid another motorist who flagged him down.

' •the plans were described by Allan 'J. Me&dowxsiteft at a federal Power COJttffiisslon hearing on the Pacific Northwest. Power Co.-'s 1 application .to build Pleasant Valley and Mountain Sheep dams on the Snftke. Under one plan, Meadowcroft said, high dams would be con- struoted at the Nez Perce and Asotin sites on the Snake. The other plan envisions dams at the Mountain Sheep, Pleasant Valley China Gardens and Asotln sites on the Snake and at the Lower Canyon site on the Salmon. Meadowcroft . said the power plants In both .platts would have a total generating, -capacity of more than 2,ff?8,000 kilowatts. Another FPC engineer, Wilfred A. Froggatt, also of San Francisco, said the construction cost of either dam building plan would be about 615 million dollars. He added that both plans are feasible. The engineers said the two plan's were studied as alternatives to PNP's two-dam proposal. Humphrey Bogart Back In Hospital SANTA MONICA, Calif. AP — Humphrey Bogart is in St. John's Hospital for treatment of a nerve pressure condition which followed a cancer operation. The 55-year-old actor underwent surgery last March for removal of a growth on his esophagus — ' the gullet, a tulbe from throat to stomach. • Bogart said later in an interview that the operation was '"'highly successful.'" iA statement from his doctor said Bogart was .admitted yesterday "for treatment of nerve root pressure due to excessive scar formation following previous 'surgery."
