Oct. 14—W)— Harry Bridges' trial on charges of Perjury and conspiracy to defraud the government will start on November 14, barring some unforseen delay. Federal District Judge George B. Harris has denied a series of motions by which counsel for Bridges and two aides attacked the indictments on various constitutional and legal grounds. The Australian-born Bridges, stormy labor figure and head of the CIO Longshoremen's union, was charged with perjury in testifying at his 1945 naturalization hearing that he was not and never had been » Communist. There was no Immediate comment from defense counsel whether further steps would be taken to delay .; the trial. Men of the U.S. Navy consumed more than 400,000 tons of meat during World War II. A little before 9, the phone rang.* "Qlens Palls calling Dr. Van Eyck," said the operator. "Speaking." There was the usual click and go- ahead-please, and then: "This Is Dr. Haydon at the Qlens Palls hospital. A boy was brought In a little while ago with a bullet In his brain. He's hcmorrhaging badly and the pulse is pretty weak." ''I'm 60 miles from Cilens Palls," said Dr. Van Eyck. "Have you tried Dr. Mercer al Whitehall-" "He's out of town," said Dr. Haydon. "The reason I'm calling you Is tjiat the boy happens to come from your city. He was spending the week end with relatives here and shot himself playing with a _22." "You s»y the hoy's from Albany?" said Dr. Van Eyck. "What's his name?" "Arthur Cunningham." "Cunningham . . . well, then are a lot of Cunninghams around here. Don't think I know him. Anyhow, Doctor, I'll get there as fast as j can. It's snowing pretty badly, but I think I can make it before midnight." 'T think I ought to tell you the kid's parents are poor and there isn't much chance of a fee." "That's all right," said Dr. Van Eyck. A few minutes later, the surgeon's car stopped for a red light m the-outskirts of Albany. A man in a brown leather Jacket opened the door and climbed in. "Drive straight ahead', mister,' he said, "anti better not make a 'us—I've got a gun." "I'm a doctor," said Van Eyck and this Is an emergency." "Never mind the talk," said the car theif. "Step on It." A mile out of town the man In the leather Jacket ordered the doctor to stop. "Start walking, back toward Albany," he said, "and don't turn or I'll shoot." As Dr. Van Evck leaned forward to buck the wind, he heard the car pick up speed and. when he finally turned, the talllght was ou Of sight. It took « half hour to find t, Phone, and a lot of talking to persuade a taxi company to send out cab. At the railroad depot he found the next train to Glens Fall; wasn't until 12:10- It was after 2 when the surgeon reached the hospital. Dr. Haydon was waiting for him. "I did my best." said Van Eyck "but my car—" "It was good of you to try," sal< Dr. Haydon, "but the boy died an hour ago. We couldn't stop the hemprrhaglng." Aj the two men walked past the waiting room, Van Eyck suddcnls stopped. On one of the benches his head In his hands, was th man In the brown leather Jacket "Mr. Cunningham," said Dr.iHay don. "Meet Dr. Van Eyck. He came all the way from Albany to try to save your boy." (Copyright. 1949, by Billy Rose) (Distributed by The Bell Syndicate Inc.)

Must Work with Other Governments in UN By Gaynor Maddox NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA>— Any foreign peoples, no matter how their government differs iront ours, should be given a chance to study American techniques for conserving and using Industrial resources. That is ,the belief of Clarence Francis, board chairman of General Foods Corp., and an outstanding United Nations supporter among business leaders. '• He headed the I American Citizens Committee of the recent UN conference nt Lake Success on the conservation and use the worlrt resources. Some 535 scientists from 49 countries took part In the meeting. The committee's job was to put them into personal contact with American Industrialists nnd conservation specialists with whom they might exchange information. • • * "We all live in the world together," said Francis. "If the Un• Ited Nations broaden out the productive and conservation thinking of the world, everybody's standard ; of living will go up. 1 "But we should avoid propa- ganda and use only facts. Our committee tried to help the scientists get a real picture of how our private enterprlso'system works. The visitors asked the questions and did the looking. What they learned must cause them to question much hostile propaganda a- galnst free enterprise." Francis added that American businessmen who were In contact with the foreigners recognized the importance of listening to their visitors, .too. "I am convinced that our business leaders must be willing to work together with other countries despite their fear of other types of government, If the International standard of living and security Is to be improved," he DR.
