Chjnese - Communist broadcasts to day reported mass meetings in CLina which appeared aimed a raising popular support for open intervention in the Korean war. Broadcasts from the Peiping rad io, heard by the Associated Presi in San Francisco, quoted village speakers as calling American forces in Korea a ' "man-eating beast which, if not shot in time, wil break into our homes." There was ' no reference to United Nations action 'in Korea. Nor was there the slightest hint that Chinese Red troops .already have crossed the Manchurian border into North Korea to help the Ked Korean army. Blast United States The word campaign against the United States, a frequent theme of broadcasts from Peiping, reached a Hew peak in intensity. Typical of the incendiary broadcasts were quotations from"peasants" such as these: I tell these inhuman mad dogs -- the American imperialists --that I will break their skulls with my hoe, and !6t them have' a taste of our Chinese people's strength. The broadcaster editorialised: "They (the peasants) know that to oppose the U. S. invaders they cannot, be .content with' indignation and talk and.that many practical things have to be, done "by the . . ."

I refuse to be bound by party interests Pyle stressed the point that he had entered the campaign because "I hate abuses. In my work as a . radio reporter I have been permitted. to go behind the scenes of every section of the government and private Industry. There I have found so many abuses inflicted by the. power behind the scenes that I jumped at a chance to do my part in stopping the abuses." He blamed the current "mess" which the state now finds itself on the fact that the opposition party has been in power too long and has been taken over by the special Interest groups seeking to obtain more power in government. Then he admitted that his party suffered from the same condition in the late- 20's and early 30's, but ft had now purged' itself and was ready to provide a strong, young and vigorous opposition party.

Weather every where, Even in the air; Tucson has the best: Need I say the rest? . -- E. O.H., Tucson's morning temperatures continued chilly today, compared to what prevailed last month, but were- running slightly above normal. The low was 4S between'5:30 'and 6:30 a, ni., and it was only 53 at 8 a. ,ro. The mercury was headed somewhere around S3, the same as the high for yesterday. Phoeni;: had a-high of 90 and Yuma 94, the wide difference between those cities and Tucson being attributed in part to mild winds and high clouds here. The northwest wind ranged between five to eight miles an hour here yesterday afternoon, and was up to 13'miles an hour about'5 p.m. Temperatures over the G r e a t Plains states, which had been above normal, plunged below freezing in the area as far east as the Great Lakes and as far south as the Texas panhandle.

They said Collazo told them the plot was not hatched in Puerto Rico but that he and Tor resola acted on their own. Mr. Truman, the target of. the fanatical scheme, continued yesterday to show the same unconcern which he displayed when the crack o: shots roused him from a nap at Blair House Wednesday afternoon. At his news conference, he spoke gravely and^with obvious sadness of the three men who had been shot down while defending him. The thing he' hates is-that they had to suffer, he said, especially since it was all so unnecessary.
