PAGE BIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Army Says 88 Korean GI's Convicted of Shunning Battle Duty • By JIM BECKER SEOUL tB—The Army today »td 87 men and one officer of the Wth Regiment havs been convicted el refusing lo go Into fiction last October against the Communists. ' Puerto Blcan soldiers made up the bulk of the 65th Regiment. It has iome troops from the continental U. B. Tour other men were acquitted in venerftl court martial, said Maj. Walton B. McMullen, U. S. Third Division public information officer. The cases Involved men who • Ither left a battle scene without orders or refused to advance. Names of the accused and oon- vicfed were not disclosed. The incident! occurred last October on the Central Front. Sentence* ranged from elx months to 10 years at hard labor In prison. Only one man received * full 10-y«ar sentence. Molt were given dishonorable dischargee. Some were given bad conduct discharge* and two soldiers were given prison termi without discharger The sentence and trial records will be reviewed by the judge advocate general section In Washington, D. C. j McMullen said the charges grew out of an action In which two companies were ordered to counterattack a Chinese position. After - the companies reached their ob- JectiTe, a number of men withdrew without orders. McMullen aald the trial records ahowed some offers and men who remained In position were killed or ^wounded because the accused men pulled back without orders. Another case Involved c p»trol action in which men slipped away to their own lines without the patrol leader's knowledge. , "Th» major said the entire regiment was pulled out of the line after the Incident and "retrained." The regiment since hns been back COUNTY FARM ! (Continued from Page 1) medic Ini also li provided by . the .Th» food.' he «aid. Is not luxurious but ,!• ample. Treatment of prisoners Is "not bad," Mr. White Fafd. arid Is rio worse than the sort of discipline needed at any Institution of this type. The county farm is not ^srfent, he said, and the county reafenizcs this.'Added toilet facilities are needed and there should be added ventilation of the concrete block prison building In summer, he said. Attic fans have been installed, he said, but do not coo! the building sufficiently. The farm also needs a new deep well, Mr. White aald. Price and bid data have been obtained for such R well, he added. "The biggest 1 problem," he said, .*i« the. fact that the men have to be handled so they won't think the county farm Is « 'home.' "Many .of the prisoners are 'repeaters' and chronic alcohollfis." If county farm life Is made too easy, he continued, many would keep coming back to find a place to stay —at county expense. Federal agents, who now are re- eonslble for Investigating comity penal farms when civil rights violations are reported, have checked tne Mississippi County farm during the past year and said they have found no Instances of such violations Two Cars Collide At Intersection Here Two vehicles collided at the cor- ner'of llth and Main Streets yesterday. Involved in the wreck were Mrs. Anna Marie Fellhauer, 1027 Chlcka- aawba, driving a 1950 Ford, and Mrs. Venola Russell of Armorel, driving a 1949 Pontlae. Mrs. Russell's car. going west on Main, received damages to the front end, and Mrs. Fcllhauer's Ford trav- elling north of nth, was damaged on the right side. Officer Willie Hopper investigated.

It participated in the Chosen Reservoir drive, the withdrawal to the Hung- nam ueach heart where it held a vital par of a section against Chinese attacks, and the offensive 1051 that pushed the Reds back north of the 38th. Parallel. VAN FLEET (Continued from Page 1) us," nnd added that lie was snenk- Ing for "thn rallra Korean nation." "1 am sure President Elsenhow- er, who han llic right and speedy sclllemcnt of the Korean War In his heart, must have a plan which Is better than w« know and we will gladly welcome find co-op- oratc with Gen. Taylor. ..." At U. N. headquarters In New York, Andrew W. Cordler, executive assistant to Secretary-General Trygve, praised Van Fleet's work In Korea. Th« two men met several times during Conner's visits here. "Tho U. N. Is very Indebted to Gen. Van Fleet," ho said. Lt. Gen. Pnlk Sun Yup, South Korean Army chief of .staff, commented: "I am sorry he Is leaving. We need a biff offensive." Doesn't Rule Out Offensive The change In command, however, did not rule out the possibility at nn Allied offensive with a view of ending the 15-month-old stalemate in the bitter struggle. Signs pointing to a possible offensive included: 1. President Elsenhower on his visit to Korea in December sitld n way would Ijo found to settle the Korean War. tie did not indicate whether by continued negotiations with the Communists or new military blows—as urged by some of his top commanders. 2. Gen. J. Law ton Collins, U. S. Army chief of staff, saw'the President Thursday iind was scheduled to leave Washington for Tokyo and Korcit today. The Army's No. 1 man presumably ca'rrled Instructions for the changing situation in Korea. 3. Taylor Is not a defensive- minded general.' He led the lOlsl Airborne Division over Normandy, being the first man to "hit the silk" in the 1014 Invasion of Europe. 4. Allied air power has been hitting hard at Communist key rail bridges and supply centers. 5. Top commanders in the Par Bast have been holding a scrle sof conferences in Korea and Japan since'Elsenhower left, on the battleship Missouri, In Seoul and Tokyo. 8. Other shifts in high commands appear imminent. High- ranking generals and admirals from the stales have been visiting the Far East in recent weeks, 1. Military sources insist the U. N. should set up a battle line farther up In North Korea—say between Pyongyang ami Wonsnii or Pyongyang: nnd rrungnam—that could be held easier with two- thirds of the men now on the present 155-mile front. Vnn Fleet leaves Korea nearlv hvo years since he took command in April. 1951, on the eve of the Chinese Communists' last big but doomed offensive. At thnt time he succeeded Gen, Matthew B. Rldg- way who went to Tokyo to take over Gen. MncArlhur's pos't ns U. N. commander. Van Fleet was counter-attacking all along the line when the Reds suggested armistice talks. Since November, 1051, he has chafed at having to command a largely Inactive army. Tn the meantime, he has molded South Korean troops— who once broke before Communist offensives—into a formidable fighting force.

WILSON (Continued from Page I) taking the defense Job; But ho maintained stoutly that he IB going lo do * good Job—it given the assistants of his choice. He said he will get rid of his 39,411 shares of O,M. stock by April J, selling most of It and giving not more than 20 per cent of It to his children and grandchildren. He testified he won't own any "beneficial Interest" In it thereafter. "I have gone tills far and I am not going to havo-my feet In the mud, gentlemen," he said. ' Wilson's tax losses In the stock sale arc expected lo lie substantial, although tax experts said they would not run as high as the 4000,000 estimated somo days ago. Wilson said ho will also dispose of nn additional 1,800 shares of G.M. slock, worth around $122,000 due him durln« tho next three years from the firm he once headed. Besides his G.M. holdings, Wilson said he has investments In Texas and Colorado oil and gns lease acreage, and owns $79,700 worth of government bonds. In testimony before the armed services group Jnn, 15, released with his new testimony by the committee yesterday, Wilson was revealed as having said he could make a decision against General Motors that was "extremely adverse." Answer Was Yes "Yes, sir, 1 would," the nom- Ineo told Sen. Hemliickson (R-NJ) JJut ha added: "I cannot conceive of one. For years I thought what was good for our country was good for General Motors and vice versa. The difference did not exist. "Our company Is too big. It goes with the welfare of the country. Our contribution to the nation Is quite considerable. He had said he wouldn't have "any reluctance" to pass on O.M. contracts with the government, asserting: nil such contracts must stand on their own merit. Never .would he be under the thumb of General Motors, h e salt), adding: "I have always been my own bass anyway, I would like to tell you men." He said he didn't want the corporation "smeared" and "personally I do not want to be either." Times have chanced, he said, and "the people are not afraid of businessmen like me now." Asked wlmt he thought of having his testimony made public Wilson said: "A golilfjsli bowl Is nil right with mo. I do not think any of the assets I have have been taken away from anybody. I helped create some news wealth and a piece of it stuck with me. I am not ashamed of it." However, Wilson testified yesterday he thinks he "made some mistakes In my previous testimony by not making It clear on the record on how the contracting ii done and who Ims the responsibility for negotiating contracts." Observing i that he was "risking a failure In my old age" by faking the defense Job, the 62-year-old Wilson comprnlncd af one point that commltllc ' members were giving him ~-''quite a pushing around." "If I had come here to cheat, by God, r wouldn't be here" he said. Sen. Russell (D-Ga) said he was sorry Wilson felt that way. "I am, not trying to push you around but I hnvc my responsibilities loo." Russell declared. ^ Wilson said he understood but: "I run just human and, my God. 1 am making a great sacrifice to come down here." Russell had suggested that Wilson might have G.M. give htm cash Instead of 1,800 shares as a retirement bonus. . Wilson said that, If he can't Obituaries Mrs. Raspberry Dies at Keiser OSCEOLA — Services for Mrs iVfuudJe Raspberry, who died at, her home In Keiser Wednesday afternoon, were conducted yesterday at the Keiser Methodist church by tlv Rev.

At K news conference later In the day,' Elsenhower's press secretary, James C. Hagerty, snid in reply to a question that he didn't know whether the President had ordered the Cabinet officers and others at the conference not to talk to reporters. < Hagerty then was asked: "Is any Cabinet officer free to discuss what went on in a Cabinet meeting If he so desires?" • . Hagerty replied with a flat "no," then added that he wanted to put It this way: "This administration believes that private meetings with ihe President of the United States should be kept private. A Cabinet meeting is private." Officials of the Truman and Franklin D. Roosevelt administrations almost always refrained from going into details of Cabinet meetings, but they often were willing to tell newsmen what subjects were discussed. Hagerty said the new administration has made no effort to keep other White House visitors from talking to newsmen. Most of them have had .very little to say after seeing the President. As for Cabinet member s, Hagerty said In reply to another I question that they will be holding news conferences in their own de- parlmenls. The President also plans to hold news conferences regularly, Hagerty has announced. Dealing with Ihe retirement of Gen. Van Fleet as commander of the Eighth Army In Korea. Hager- Rubinstein's Arrest Is Delayed Again NEW YORK (/P)—Arrest of financier Serge Rubinstein on a deportation warrant was put off today at least until Monday to give the Washington, D. C., Appeals Court time to review the case. Edward J. Shaughnessy, New York director of immigration and naturalization, said the court had asked him by telephone not to arrest the Russian-born draft dodger before Monday afternoon. Attorney General Herbert Brownell had ordered a deportation warrant served on Rubinstein. The Washington appeals court yesterday denied a motion which would have restrained Immigration officers from taking Rubinstein into custody. This would have opened the way to his arrest except for the telephone call asking the two-day delay. Shaughnessy said he understood Rubinstein was in the New York area.
