I PAGE EIGHT Ex-Communisfs Held for Treason Hungary Accuses Eight of Spying for Tito and the West BUDAPEST, Hungary, Sept. 10. (fl — The Hungarian government accused eight former high-ranking Communists today of treason and of trying to overthrow the government "with the armed help of Tito »nd the other present leaders o( Yugoslavia." The eight men—Including former Foreign Minister Laszlo Rajk and Lfeut. Gen. Oyorgy Palffy, former chief inspector of the Hungarian Army—will go to trial on tile Indictment on Sept.. 16. Copies of the indictment were handed to . correspondents several hours after the Hungarian Workers (Communist) Party issued a com- muulque announcing the expulsion of three leading party mcrnup and their arrest on charges of .^ Ing "for foreign Imperialist po\i ers." The- powers were not iinme in the communique. The three were Palffy, Kolta Horvnth, editor-in-chief of th Hungarian Trade Union newspnpei Nep Szava; and Pal Justus, forme Communist member of Pnrliamen Thr« Trials Scheduled Rajk's arrest on charges c "Trotzykism" and espionage fo "Imperialist powers" was annoimrei June 15. along with others. In formed sources said next week' trial probably would be the firs of a series of three. They said many other persons have been im plicated and that a full list o these would be announced later. Perhaps the most sensatlona charge in today's 34-page Indictment was the one that accused the major defendants of hoping "to carry out their aims with the armot help of Tito and the other presenl leaders of Yugoslavia." Hungary Is one of (lie Moscow- led group of Cominform nations which has broken with Premier Marshal Tito's Yugoslav government over the Issue of obedience to Moscow. The Indictment was handed down by Prosecutor Gyilla Alapi. who prosecuted Josef Cardinal Minds- renty and sent him to jail for life for treason.

He wrote m a letter about i story I wrote couple of weeks ago on people grow Ing old. In it I mentioned all the olc cops I knew when I worked a police beat and nor they sat a round at night, happy and chew ing the fat. And In it I remembered how i was when they retired: A little party, a few awkward words, anc they were gone. And pretty sooi they were dead. Sergeant Bill Leltzel wrote me: "Some nine months hence I'l. have finished my quarter-centurj and will, too. blow out, clumlsly Once in a while I find myself making up the little speech I'll make Then I think: " 'What the hell.

Would Help Kookiex He remembered how green he felt when he first became a cop. And he wondered how (lie nevi rookle.s coming i(p every year now can ever learn to protect a city like Detroit. But he went on: "Then as I let my memory cruise future-ward through the years, I can remember how my co-rookies took over more and more responsibilities until at a recent revival party we round there were 16 of 46—left out of 108—who had been made sergeants or better. "Beer, pretzels, and sandwiches were everywhere. Everyone was busy remembrancing. No one thought to try to total our dead though it's in the files for those who care enough to check.

But they are there — In the convict's brain — growing higher and stronger with the years. Writing a newspaper column Is one of the oddest occupations In our screwball civilization. To become a lawyer, a doctor, or an undertaker you have to go to school But there Is no college (or columnists anymore than there Is for astrologers. There h no test, no standard ,of qualification, no training for this blwarre business. Drew Pearson slar'ed as a diplomatic reporter. Walter Winchell began In vaudeville. DeWitt MacKenzie was a foreign correspondent Westbrook Pegler and Bob Ruark were sports writers. Eleanor Roosevelt was a mother and magazine editor, Billy Rose a showman and song writer. Will Rogers. Bob Hope and Milton nerle turned to col- umning after successful careers as comedians. Margaret Chase Siifth, a U.S. Senator from Maine, (now' writes a column. So do a number of Congressmen. i To be a columnist it Isn't necessary to be able to either to thinker to write. You can hire ghosts to do those chores for you. i But if you •'• It yourself '. it Is hard work, and the loneliest hidus- try on earih. For bralp children have only one parent- the frontal lobe. Some people have the idea that writing a dally column is a glamor- our career, and R leadpipe cinch. But those who have done it know better. The late Don Marq u i s culled It "digging a dally grave." Asked If he found his task diffi- cut. Red Smith, celebrated sports columnist of the New York Herald Tribune, said: "No. you just sit donn at your typewriter, open your veins—and bleed." How do you gel a Job wrltin<* a column? Some people ask for v"— and it just happens to others. 11 Just happened to me. In 1943. the Associated Press decided it wanted a warfront column about the troops. It asked one reporter to rto It, and this wise man said. "No. thanks." Someone then happened to recall I was in Sicily, and a message came: "Boyle, start writing a column." I did. Although the war ended four years ago no one thought to revoke the order So I am still at It. That Is a funny thing '-out columns and comic rips. They 50 on forever — like Tarzan of Ihe' Apes.
