WEDNESDAY AFTEHNOON MARCH 14, ; ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOS PRICE THREE CENTS YANKS SLUG THRU HILLS RIMMING REMAGEN By WALLACE PERRY I Howard Blakeslee, Associated Press science editor, has supplied the San Francisco security con- fe:eiice with a new idea as to the scope of precautionary-measures v.-hich may be necessary to forestall future wars of aggression. i * * * It Is the hazard that lies in ^inventions of peace which may be converted to war. And, strangely enough, it'.i to 'Hitler, the aggressor, that we owe a "debt of gratitude" for :!urnish- , ( i:ig the basis for the suggested shift in security plans. * * + Blakeslee cites the fact that it was Hitler--with the aid of (Xazi warlords and German scientists--who converted the peacefu Airplane to an engine of war -along with rockets, flying bombs find other savage innovations. And he insists that, :"or the :"u- Tiire protection of the rest of the (world, steps should be . taken to insure, that all discoveries, fnven- ( tiona and developments of whatever nature---be they mechanical chemical, beological or whatnot-which come forth in the war- criminal nations of Germany and Japan be made known at once to 'the United Nations. * + * After former wars--and in anticipation of new ones--rBlakeslec points out, the advocates of peace have attempted safeguards against known military potentialities; but (Hitler has shown us that wars don't necessarily depend on military alone--that lives can be destroyed wholesale by means entirely foreign to hitherto-Known" military 'procedure. * * * ·, Students of security for months have been advocating control of strategic materials available to the Germans and the Japs -- of electric power, for example, trans- i portation systems, munitions- basic ores. * * * ' Howard Blakeslee, I think has added another important step. The world, this time, will be safer if diplomats of the peace- loving nations make certain -- or as certain as they can--that secret formulas which may become secret weapons come out in the open.

The house killed two bills designed to change the present system of teachers' tenure. House education committee members said the group had decided to drop efforts to revise the present act. Compromise Aviation Dispute Word that a compromise had tieen reached on two opposing iatton control bills came from Gov. Dempsey, who told questioners he had been informed by persons participating in the discussions that satisfactory adjustments have been made. Dempsey said he understood it was planned to amend HB271, endorsed by the airmen's association, so as to give certain regulatory powers to the state corporation rommsfsion, which has backed another bill. Curbs "Unfair Practice" The dentistry bill was passed 34 to 13. Rep. M. S. Smith (D-Curry), member of the state dental board, daclared the measure would correct what he termed an "unfair" practice by which "people who have six or seven weeks experience in laboratories or dentists' offices are trying to practice dentistry. "This bill only changes a nec- tion of the law which says who is entitled to practice," Smith said. Later, he said "it would not stop anybody from pulling a tooth, pro- i-iding he did it without getting paid for it." When asked, "will this bill shut out the mail, order business on false teeth?" Smith answered: HITLER ON ODER RIVER FRONT 'The federal government hns already done that?" Okey Surplus Purchases A bill requested by Gov.

Germans Report Paffon Attempts Moselle Crossing By JAMES M. LONG PARIS, March 14 (AP) -First army troops slugged their way through the hills rimming the Remagen bridge head today to within a mile and a quarter of the Frankfurt Ruhr autobahn. The German radio declared Lt. Gen. Geo. S. Patton was trying to cross the Moselle at several points west of Coblenz, but there was no confirmation from the Allied side. The Germans said the third army attempts were beaten back but that now Patton had brought up four infantry and three to four tank divisions for a large-scale attempt to force the river. Capture.
