Korean War Is 'American Matter' TOKYO (Si — An American congressman said Wednesday he considered the Korean War "an American matter." Rep. Overton Brooks (D-La), member of the House Armed Services Committee, told a news conference that basic military decisions in Korea were made by the U. S. and "I prefer to think of this as an American matter." Brooks implied he thought other U. N. members should be playing a leavier role. Asked if his comments on the extent of U. N. participation in Korean fighting implied criticism of Allied nations, Brooks said it did but added he was speaking personally. ! "We would like to see them extend greater participation," he said. Brooks is chairman of an appropriations subcommittee touring U. S. Far Eastern bases. The subcommittee arrived Monday and will go to Korea. Weather Observations By The Assocated Press U.

BLAKESLEE Af Science Reporter CHICAGO Iff) — "I don't believe Russia has one single atom bomb," Carlton S. Proctor, prominent New York engineer who has worked in Russia, declared Wednesday. "I think every one of the atomic explosions in Russia was just a premature explosion, in an effort to produce a bomb." Proctor is president of the American Society of Civil Engineers, one of 64 engineering societies celebrating a Centennial of Engineering opening here Wednesday. He gave his views on Russia during ah interview telling of U. S. engineers' vast accomplsiiments in the last 100 years. (The White House has announced three atomic explosions in Russia, referring to the second one as "another atomic bomb," without amplifying further. Other sources have estimated Russia has a stockpile of 100 or many more a-bombs by now.) Proctor declares it takes teamwork and cooperation to make an a-bomb work, and that Russians don't trust each other. Such cooperation he said, "is essentially impossible in Russia or any other totalitarian state. There is no possibility of one man trusting another and integrating his efforts with any other man." In 1930, Proctor worked on building Russia's second largest dam, at Svirstroy east o e Leningrad. In World War U he was an army engineer, a colonel, building the Persian corridor road from the Indian Ocean to funnel supplies to Russia. "The Russians have no confidence in their own engineers," he said, "and I have never met a Russian engineer who was a Communist who was any good." Soviet jet planes are gcoo; "but the Russians got the practical end of how to build them for Germans whom they took over. "We've been bluffed and fooled into thinking the Russians have produced more than they have," he said. SIDE GLANCES By Gailbraith T. M. R* U. «. Prt. 0«; Copr. 1952 by NEA Sm£e.'ine. "That proves it!

He was knocked down several times, but each time arose and—calmly and with dignity—walked on. The students were so out of control that the guards fled and she and the bishop had to return to the bus depot unattended. At a second village the guards bound Ford with wet ropes which contracted as they dried. She said the final humiliation was in the Cantor, prison —the Reds forced him to undress before her. Later, Sister Ryan said, the Reds took her to a grave, told her the bishop was buried there, and forced her to sign a document saying Ford died of natural causes.
