TUESDAY, 'APRIL 4, 1950 Displaced Persons Debate r>'" •!'"' i% ; '• ' : "••'•' rt* •!•!•• • oils Down to Eligibility WASHINGTON, April 4. (AP) -4 Senate debate over a bill to admit! more war refugees Into the United (states centered today around • the question: Who, are'to be.classlfled as displaced.persons? , Opponents of legislation recommended ,by the .Seriate'" .Judiciary Committee contended it would break down the present 'program ^changing the definition of DP's vlQlncIude 8,000,000 person of German ancestry driven from their homes In Eastern Europe after the war. ,-..,•.A substitute measure offered by 18, Republican and Democratic senators would retain the present definition under which only rc- fugees''who are the concern of the International .Refugee Ortfanizition would be eligible to enter this country as displaced persons. Difference in Bills This is one of the major differences between the two bills, which have stirred up a strong dispute since, they were brought before, the' Senate Feb. 28. Debate on them was resumed la ; t Friday after beinjr sus'ienderi March 8. . The Senate has agreed to start, voting on the legislation at 2 p.m. tomorrow and stay in continuous session until It and all amendments are acted on. The present law, passed In 1D18, provides for the admission of 205.000 DP's before June 30. The committee bill would Increase this to ! 320,000 and ' the substitute to 339,000. Sponsors oi the substitute argue that the committee bill would keep, and even strengthen, some provisions of the present law that President Truman and others have said discriminates against Jews and Catholics. :• •'• fc Chanced Drflnllion Hit ^lowever, they' directed most of their fire yesterday at its changed definition of displaced persons., Senators Lehman (D-Ub-NY), H. Alexander Smith (R-NJ),''Snl- tonstall (R-Mass) and : 6'Cbnor (D-Md) contended that the committee measure would disrupt efforts to solve , the problem .of • Iro refugees—that Is,' those" within, the care of the United Nations Orga^ nizatlon. ' ' Smith argued that the German expellees must be. treated as-a separate problem,-that their inclusion In the DP program would swamp the limited Immigration quotas even under the proposed increase In admissions. , Supports of the committee bill .did not take the floor yesterday to answer their critics. They may be holding their Jlre so as to make the closing arguments before the voting starts. Flier Takes High Rood to Win Out Over Pony Express ST. JOSEPH, Mo., April 4.

COURIER NEWS Navy Denies Any Connection With Saucer Shaped Missiles WASHINGTON, April 4. </?>}—The Navy says, to » comment oh the latest flying wucer report; (1) It has not developed any pancake- shaped Jet planes aild (2) It Is not experimenting with any saucer- shaped missile. In fact, the department reported through a spokesman, the nearest thing to a flying saucer It ever developed has not. flown since 1947. , The spokesman was commenting last night on an article In U. S. News and World report' which said "ngineerj have concluded that the ft-reported saucers are Jet-power- d planes of a new design develop- d by the navy. The magazine said he saucers may have sprung from xperimcnts by Charles H. Zimmerman for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. At Langiey Air Force Base In Virginia, Zimmerman said he worked on an experimental pancake- hoped model plane during the war —this was the one the navy said they flew last In 1947—but he lidn't regard it as a forerunner to .he flying saucer. EDSQN Continued from Page 8 tal cost as an Investment of $ This is more than five times bigger than Sen. Brien McMahon's $80,000.000.000 five-year plan. The Public "Affairs Institute experts say that this aid should be made available to all countries, regardless of their position in the cold v.-ar. The goal would be to raise the incomes of people in these underdeveloped countries at a rate ol 2 per cent a year. •'; • The counter-objection to all'such planning—forcing advanced civilization on people before they are ready for 1U—is that It Is not realistic. Pittsburghs, Detrotts and TVA's can't be built overnight, and It takes a,.generation or more to train people to run them. "There persists/ too, among many students of population, a belief that trying to raise the standards oi backward people too fast only causes their birth rate to rise faster than the land can support them This Is the theory of William Vogt author of "The Road to Survival," and for many years, an .expert on Pan-American development. Java and Puerto Rico are cited as prime examples of too-rapid development. Their populations h»Ye far outstripped their food suplles In some respects their problems are now worse than they were 50 to 10< years ago. What their experience seems to show Is that progresa In technical development must be made slowly.

"Nine out of ten," he says, '"' tp talk about sports.'' , like To conclude that It was, he said, was "obviously the wrong conclusion." NAOA officials said the mode] Zimmerman developed later became a navy craft known as the XF5, or "Flying Pancake." The navy said a full s ca|e experimental model never got off the ground. Radio commentator Henry J Taylor said last night that many flying saucers" really are U. 8. controlled jet, fighter planes. On his ABC broadcast he referred to the XF5U. He called It a navy experimental fighter of "incredible speed." it looks and is shaped like a pancake, Taylor said. He said a "saucer" seen over Montgomery, Ala., on July 24, 1048, by two Eastern Airlines pilots, really was an experimental Jet plane. In a broadcast from Dallas, Texas, last Monday,' Taylor said he thinks there are other Flying Saucers controlled by the 'U. S. He said they are of several types "but nobody is inside of them." .He said one was found on the ground in Texas. Disappearance JiDonayMay Je Suicide 'Hard-Luck Bixbys' to Fly On CALCUTTA. India, April 4. ,.., The globe-circling Bixby's—stopped 'y engine trouble in their attempt 10 beat the round-the-world flight record held by the late Bill Oclom— ire going to fly to Sun Francisco anyhow. The aerial husband-and-wife .earn, Bob and Dianna, hid their disappointment behind philosophic smiles totlny' as they were told t would be several days before ipare parts could be flown here for ;he needed repairs on their twin- engine Mosquito, the Huntress 11. They were well over half their journey—11,836 miles—when they were forced to turn back to Calcutta's Dumdum Air Field yesterday morning. And they were right on. the schedule they had set for topping Odom's 1347 speed record of 73 hours. The engine trouble began, Bob said, when their converted . British bomber was up 4,000 feet. Gaskets in the cooling system of the left engine burst and the plane was showered with anti-freeze fluid. "We knew we had to turn back," Bobz said, adding that their first reaction was to "get out of there as fast as possible and back to good earth." • . . • . Dianna was near tears when the plane landed back at Dumdum. But Bob comforted her with the promise that "we can try again." "We are the most disappointed couple in the world," Bob said. "Everything was going smoothly until this. It was no fault of the Mosquito, but—Gee, let's forget it." - The Bixbys are determined to continue the flight they had map- ed out. But the delay will be longer than they had expected because the spare parts may have to be flown in from London or the United States. , •, .The couple, operators of charter cargo planes at Santa Paula, Calif; )lan to hop next to Tokyo, across Red China, then to Midway Island, and on to San Pranciscc Hollywood Continued from Page 8 I've had to play.
