(AP) Henry A. Wallace said itfoi I iS xoaay tnat tne United States and Britain "would fight" if Russia should attempt to expand southward into Turkey in the vicinity of the Arabian oil fields and the Soviets should be told so.

(P) B'lood workers in their 10-day battle with the debris-filled Des Moines river, fought today to save the city waterworks ind prevent a power failure as the muddy river receded very slowly after cresting at 6 a. m. (CST. About 10,000 persons were homeless for the second time in a week as the river crested at 20.04 feet, two-tenths of a foot off a week ago Saturday's record high. An estimated 25 per cent of this industrial, southeastern Iowa city of 32.000 residents was inundated. Central Airliner Instrument Panel Recovered; May Give Crash Clue LEESBURG, June 15. (AP) Recovery of the instrument panel of the capital airlines plane which crashed with a death toll of 50 was reported today, but investigators said they have not determined the cause of the disaster and launched a far-reaching inquiry. One airline official told reporters that the altimeter from the panel which measures the plane's altitude registered 2,000 feet and that this would have been a "safe" height for crossing the Blue mountain into w-hich the DC-4 crashed. He gave this report originally without qualification, but later he explained he had not seen the altimeter and was told of the reading. He added that he does not know whether the altimeter was faulty. Reading High Enough He had noted that such an altitude would have been 500 to 600 feet above the spot where the plane actually rammed into the mountain Friday night and would have enough to clear the crest. An investigator for the Airline Pi lots the pilots' union, said "the cause the- crash is still a conjecture. It might have been mechanical. It might have been a sudden down-draft." This investigator, who declined to give his name, said he was informed that the instrument panel was in the hands of specialists for the civil areo-nautics board. William K. Andrews, in charge of air safety investigation for the CAB, told reporters he could make no statement now on the altimeter nor any other angle of the crash. Ke an nounced the start of an official in quiry, to cover all phases, and said that until it is completed he can say nothing. The CAB to issue a preliminary statement in Washington to morrow.

UP) Herbert Hoover declared tonight the United States is "over-exporting" its re sources and cannot continue its ores ent rate of foreign gifts and loans "without further evil consequences to our stability." The former Republican president said in a letter to Chairman Bridges (R-NH) of the Senate Finance com mittee that "the greatest danger to all civilization" lies in the possibility that the United States will impair Its economy "by drains which cripple our own productivity." "Unless this one remaining Gibraltar of economic, strength is maintained," he said, "chaos will be inevitable over the whole world." Pointing to an excess of 000 of American exports over Imports and saying it had contributed to an inflationary spiral at hene, Hoover declared "The conclusion seems to 'me irrefutable that as the result of our rate of giving and lending we are over- exporting- goods and cannot continue at such a rate with our present pro duction and consumption without further evil consequences to. our stability." Hoover's cautionary note follows a go-slow statement by Senator Van-denberg (R-Mich) last week urging that any foreign aid program be based on a "total balance sheet" of American ahility to provide goods and services for world rehabilitation. Together, the statements apparently represented a Republican demand for a thorough assessment of this coun try's economy before foreign aid decisions are made. Hoover told Bridges that the United States probably has become a debtor, rather than a creditor, nation. He noted that the American taxpayer must bear the burden of gifts and loans in Flood Rescues l.fe raft head back into the flooded remove more evacuees as the East of the city. A small rowbot carries (AP Wirephoto) said he believed mignt not Although no deaths had been re ported here as compared to four in last week's flood, Marion Edie, 22, of Emerson, drowned last night in the East Nishnabotna river near Red Oak in Southwest Iowa. Edie, the first fatal victim of the current floods in the state, fell through the trap-door of a coal car while working with a railroad crew repairing a washed out bridge. Loveless said there were only 15 to 20 calls here last night from persons wishing to be evacuated. He said he knew of only two persons stranded. They were at the hydro-electric plant but in no danger, he said, although they "might get little hungry" before rescue workers could get to them. Meanwhile, the Iowa river was rising rapidly at Iowa City, the home of the University of Iowa in the east central part of the state. The crest was expected about noon tomorrow, and a stage about 17.5 to 18 feet, about a half foot higher than the crest of a week ago today, was anticipated. At Cedar Rapids, also in East Central Iowa, the Cedar river was stationary this morning, but a crest of about 18 to 18.5 feet was expected between 6 p. m. and midnight tonight. The river was at 17.1 feet at 6:30 a. m. today. In most other section of. t'sc-flood waters, also dun? to extremely heavy rains recently, receding. Coast guard boats at Ottumwa made three trips across treacherous waters between midnight and early today, carrying pumps to the city's waterworks plant. Loveless said. Horace A. Brown, Ottumwa waterworks superintendent, said last night that if the river reached the previously predicted 20.5 feet, he would have a safety margin of only one inch. "If the waterworks goes out, it means we will lose our pressure in our boilers at the power plant and that means a power failure," Loveless said. "The power plant itself is in pretty good shape," he added. The city was left without power and water during week's high water. Drinking water still was being hauled in from neighboring cities, although water was being pumped through the city system. Montana Quadruplets Get Their First Meal; Seem to Be Doing Well MILES CITY, June 15.

OP) Swarthmore college increased its faculty salaries to 42 per cent with initial proceeds of a five-year alumni fund campaign that raised more than $1,000,000 In its first year, Dr. John W.

Alumni day was a feature of Swarth-more's 84th commencement weekend to be climaxed tomorrow by the gradu-aiton of 116 seniors. Former Gov. Harold E. Stassen of Minnesota will be the speaker. While declaring that the United I States and Britain "would fight" if Russia ever invaded Turker with troops, Wallace said he sees no evi dence that she threatens to do so. "I am not a war monger," said the former vice president and critic of President Truman's foreign policy, "but it is important for Russia to know there is a point beyond which she shouldn go without awaki 'ng re slstance. Im confident our navy would fight if she got into Turkey because our navy is determined to get saum-Arabian on. But that oil should be made available to all coun tries." Wallace said Russia, Prance and other nations have every reason to demand a fair pro rate share, of Arabian oil under article four of the Atlantic charter. He saw no proof that Russia plans any dangerous moves in Turkey these days "any more than Russia has any proof that we are doing to do any thing that way in Greece. "Turkey is the sensitive point and that has to be handled carefully," he declared, adding that developments in Greece and Hungary are mere "chess playing" between the United States and Russia. He said he does not regard the Continued on Page 7, Column 7 GOPlTHoping Wallace Backs Truman in '48 WASHINGTON, June 15. (JP) Carroll Reece, Republican national chairman, today the GOP hopes Henry a. Wallace will suDDort Pres ident Truman in. 1948 because that would "make the issue between the major parties unmistakably clear." "That issue," Reece declared, is between the American liberalism, exemplified by the Republican party, and the radical totalitarianism with which the Democrat party has become tainted through its alliance with the Political Action Committee and as sorted subversive subsidiaries, as exemplified by the activities of Mr. Wallace and his ilk." Reece expressed his views on Wal lace in a latter to GOP office-holders, party officials and leaders throughout the country made public by the na tional committee. Reece said the voters of ton state's third district decided June 7 "they wanted no part of a political organization in which the Wallace school of thought was predominant." Reece referred to the special elec tion in which Republican Russell Mack was elected over Democrat Charles Savage to succeed the late Republican Rep. Fred Norman. Wallace backed Savage who, Reece said, belongs to the "extreme left wing" of his party. Man Jailed on Charge Of Murder in Death Of His Sister-in-law SHAMOKIN, June 15.

And Ship-owners Break Off Talks; Workers Quittin NEW YORK, Monday, June 16 (UP) The nation's 200,000 CIO Maritime wrpkers walked off their ships today, paralyzing shipping in all major U. S. ports, after zero-hour negotiations failed to break their deadlock with shipowners. Accusing the operators of a "lockout" and of failing to bargain in good faith, the seamen and dockworkers left their jobs under a "no contract. no work" policy when the contracts of five CIO unions expired at midnight. Union leaders estimated the move would tie up 1,000 ships in east, gulf and west coast ports. First to be hit after the midnight deadline passed were the teeming east coast ports, headed by New York where maritime leaders claimed up to 250 ships were affected. The customs house, however, said only 220 American-flag ships were in port, of which 102 were under repair. A tie-up of gulf and west-coast shipping followed as the deadline moved westward across the nation, west coast unions were conducting separate negotiations with Pacific coast ship owners, But were pledged to walkout if east coast unions failed to win contracts. The Taoific American Shipowners Assn. estimated at San Francisco that 200 of its ships would be tied up in west coast ports. The national aiaritime union, strong and largest of the five CIO unions involved, spearheaded the east coast walkout from headquarters in the world's greatest port. Its members threw up picket lines, established five strike headquarters in New York City, 'and set up soup kitchens and sleeping facilities for 10,000 seamen. The MNU national council ended a three-hour meeting at 11:15 last night and announced final plans for the walkout. A spokesman said NMU members were not ordered to quit their ships, but said all would be notified immediately after the midnight deadline that they no longer had a contract. "They know what to do then," he added. Picke't patrols were sent out immediately after midnight on the New York waterfront. They carried signs with such inscriptions as "no contract no work. We are locked out." Joseph Curran, NMU president, said "we won't want a strike. We never wanted a strike," but he em phasized that his union would "mobilize fully" to "beat the shipowners' lockout." The NMU walked out after ship operators rejected its demands for a 20 per cent wage increase, 40-hour Continued on Page 7, Column 4 Russians Reject Hungarian Coup Protests LONDON. June 15. (UP) Russia todav bluntlv rejected United States and British protests against the leftist coup in Hungary. Lt. Gen. V. P. Sviridov, Russian delegate on the Allied control com mission in Budapest, refused a u. 5. demand for a three-power investigation of the coup. Sviridov said that American protests were groundless and that any inquiry such as the United States demanded would be "a rude interference with the internal political affairs of Hungary." In Moscow Foreign Minister Via-cheslav Molotov as brusquely rejected the latest British protest, calling Britain's attitude "a new attempt at interference" in Hungarian affairs. In Romania and Bulgaria there were indications that the Communist-dominated regimes both faced grim economic situations. It was announced in Bucharest that the government last night adopted a Communist-sponsored "economic and financial rehabilitation plar setting new goals for Industrial production. Violators of laws enacted in connection with the plan are to be punished severely. After adoption of the plan Commerce Minister George Gheorghiu-Dej, who is also secretary general of the Romanian Communist party, left for Moscow today to seek a grain loan. Bulgaria announced a reduction in its bread ration from 13 ounces a day to 10.6 ounces. Father of Eight Dies Of Accident Injuries YORK. June" 15. (A) George E. Yeagley, 46, Elizabethtown R. 3, father of eight children, died early today in the York hospital a short time after he was injured in an auto mobile accident. York County Coroner Lester J. Sell said Yeagley apparently was run over by his own car from which he had alighted to fix a flat tire. Sell said his car was hit oy another machine operated by Harold Winters, 21, Red Lion, R. D. 1. State Policeman F. R. Stutts file da charge of involuntary manslaughter against Winters. and the displaced persons camps "ought to be closed." "Those who can go home should go home," he said in an interview. "Let the others shift for themselves. They've been pulling our leg long enough." Aside from the report of the Republican spokesman, it appeared evident from the congressional timetable that there is little chance of congressional action this year. The calendar for the next 40 days is crowded with priority legislation, including appropriation bills to finance the government. The House had held Up action on a measure authorizing United States participation in the international refugee organization which is scheduled on July 1 to take over from UNRRA the care of approximately 900,000 refugees remaining in the displaced persons camps. Most of are in the British and American occupation zones. Air aciy Probers Named WASHINGTON. June 15. 04) President Truman expressed deep concern over commercial flying safety todav and appointed a blue-ribbon board of five experts to see what he and Coneress ought to do. Mr. Truman cited "the recent accidents'' and said he had decided the safety problem should be "carefully examined" by a group representing all interests in civil air transport. Chairman James M. Landis of the Civil Aeronautics board, appointed chairman of the president's special board of inquiry, called the first meeting for Tuesday in his office. The other members are: Milton W. Arnold, retired brigadier general, now vice president for operations and engineering of the Air Transport Assn. Dr. Jerome C. Hunsaker, chairman of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. Theodore P. Wright, civil aero nautics administrator. H. B. Cox, of Lomita, a civil engineer and pilot for American Airlines, who will represent tl.e Air Line Pilot Assn. The White House made public a letter from Mr. Truman to the ap pointees in which he said he is "deeply concerned" about the subject of air transportation safety, "especially in view of the recent accidents to air craft of our certified domestic air carriers." He told the board to study the re cent accidents three crashes having taken 146 lives within three weeks and to determine how the findings in those crashes can be utilized to advance air safety. The president urged them also to consider how new equipment already in prospect must be adjusted to mechanical aids and human capabilities. He asked for recommendations as soon as possible on action the government might take to assure the highest degree of safety and on any legis lation that might be needed from Congress. Conferees Agree On Governor's Labor Program (Compiled from Wire Reports) Agreement was reached over the weekend by state House-Senate conferees on key measures in Gov. Duff's labor program with final action expected today (Monday) in Harris-burg where the General Assembly hopes to wind up the 1947 session tonight. The State Legislature session now in its sixth month was expected to adjourn Saturday but Republican leaders gave up the job of trying to solve last-minute differences over administration legislation. The time set for the session's end, without a date for resumption, is 9 o'clck (Allentown time) tonight. The House will vote today on three conference reports 'on bills banning strikes public workers, including teachers; denying unemployment compensation to strikers, and calling for equal pay for women for equal work. The Senate Saturday night by a straight party vote, 34 Republicans to 16 Democrats, approved the first two measures, but delayed a vote on the third. Sen. John H. Dent, Democratic floor leader, and member of the joint conference committee on the labor bills, in filling a minority report, declared: "The total effect of this legislation is to reduce the status of public employes to that of second class citi zenship." Topping the list of other disputed issues was a bill, backed by Gov. Duff, Continued on Page 7, Column 5 20 Injured When C-47 Crashes After Take-off FORT KNOX, June 15. UP) Twenty persons were injured slightly today when an army C-47 plane crashed and burned at Godman field here, shortly after a take-off, the army public relations office reported. The plane was enroute to Fort Riley, from Boiling field, Washington, D. and had just taken oft after a stop here, the office said. Capt. James F. Duesler, public relations officer, said the plane was flying about 300 feet over the field when the pilot, whose identity was not dis closed, called the control tower and reported trouble. The plane missed the runway upon landing and- crashed. Ai: passengers got out through the pilots escape hatch. Their names wer not available, Duesler said. confers more immunity that has been expected. Furthermore the probabilities are that a new and radioactive form of hydrogen, known as tritium, also is manufactured by cosmic rays. Hydrogen also would find its way into the human bodv. "This radioactive carbon 14," said Dr. Grosse, "is the first substance found to be created by cosmic rays. I do not think it is the last." The carbon is created by transmutation of nitrogen of the air. Plants draw in some of It in the chemical photosynthesis process of using sunlight. More falls to the earth to be picked up by plants, and thence to animals that eat the plants and to man who eats both. This radioactive carbon has a half-life of 5,000 years, which means that in that length of time, half of what is created on any day reverts to nitrogen by the process of giving off electrons, or beta rays. This half-life means that today there is still some radioactive carbon in man that was created 5,000 years ago. Lost in Driving Rainstorm, Hits Side of Mountain SPRINGFIELD, June 15. (AP) A lost army plane desperately its lights in a last signal for aid crashed into the side of lonely Hawks mountain in a driving rainstorrh early today and an army spokesman said "it now looks as though 12 were killed." Colonel E. L. Tucker, commandant at Grenier field, N. said the B-29 super fortress had 15 aboard when it left Tucson, yesterday, but the passenged list was changed when it refueled at the greater Pittsburgh airport. The number of persons aboard hen the plane crashed and exploded a few hunderd feet from the top of the 2,300 foot mountain wa- not yet known. Tonight a little more than 20 hours after the crash ihe army spokesman said a 12th body had been found by the weary searchers beating their way through uprooted trees and burned underbrush. Far Off Course The training flight was to have taken the craft to Bedford, but it was far off its course and had been out of radio contract with Bedford for an hour and a half when it roared out of rain-laden clouds at midnight and circled about this Vermont village at 1,000 feet or less. "It was lost or in trouble we don't know what kind," Donald Miller, who sped from Grenier Field, N. to the scene, reported. "It circled Springfield twice, flying very low, and flashed its lights a number of times. All indications are that it was climbing when it struck the mountain." Aviators in the area, including Albert Wheelock, a Civil Air Patrol flier, said that a difference of relatively few feet in its elevation or course or 20 minutes in time might have saved the plane. Swiftly clearing skies a short time after the crash made the cloud-capped mountain tops visible. Major Miller said it appeared that all the dead except one would be identified. The task of identification of the shattered bodies was made more difficult by the fact that the number of bodies found exceeded the number Continued on Page 7, Column Congress Party Approves India Division NEW DELHI, June 15. OP) The All-India Congress party agreed today to the division of India into Hindustan and Pakistan but served notice that the security of this great sub-con tinent will not permit the princely states to declare their independence of the two new dominions. The Congress Is the dominant party in the area which will be Hindustan, the largest and most populous section of India, and its stand thus foreshadowed the policy of the Hindustan government. It was an answer to an announcement by two of the largest princely states, Hyderabad and Tra-vancore, that they intended- to pro claim their independence when British power lapses in August. "We will not recognize any Independence of any state in India." said Jawaharlal Nehru, Congress president. "Any recognition of any such independence by any foreign power, wherever it is, will be regarded as an unfriendly act." The vote on this issue was unanimous, while the tally on the decision to adopt the British partition plan was 153 to 29, with 36 delegates abstaining. Mohandas K. Gandhi, lifelong opponent of any division of India, was among the Congress leaders urging adoption. The proposal adopted last week by the Moslem league, principal rival of the predominantly Hindu Congress provides for dominion status this year for the two new nations, and will allow the Indians to decide next year whether they want to sever all ties with the British empire, which has ruled them for more than 150 years. Liquor Agents Raid 3 Home 'Speakeasies' MEADVILLE, June 12. E. L. Jacklln, liquor control board agent for Crawford and Venango counties, said today simultaneous raids were conducted last night on 13 private homes he charged were being operated as "speakeasies" in three Northwestern Pennsylvania communities. Jacklin said 56 officers, including agents, Meadville city police and state police made nine raids in Meadville, one rad in Oil City and three in Franklin. Seventy-four persons were arrested, eight of whom Jacklin said were charged with being "proprietors." Baltimore Legion Raps Griffith on Immigration BALTIMORE, June 15. OP) An American Legion post today condemned National Legion Commander Paul H. Griffith as "inhuman, selfish and un-American" for his stand on immigration questions. Saul J. Shalowitz, adjutant of Maccabean Post No. 32, said 1,103 members of the Baltimore post had listed Griffith's opposition to the Stratton bill in Congress as "a detriment to the American Legion." Income Tax Cut Veto Expected Today WASHINGTON, June 15. UP) President Truman goes a long way this week toward setting the pattern of his relations with Congress and the political issues of 1948 by acting on the tax seduction Dill ana the union-curbine labor measure. The betting in Congress is that he Will veto the tax bill tomorrow. Opinions are by no means so unani mous on what he will do about the labor legislation later in the week. A veto in either case means a sharply outlined 1948 issue, and fur ther chilling of relations between the White and the congressional majority. Republicans, expecting disapproval for the tax bill, already are busily accusing the administration of reluctance to cut government costs, and of a desire to save tax reductions for a campaign year. The Democratic reply has been that some of the ap propriation cuts go beyond true economy and threaten national security, and that any surplus should go toward paying the public debt. The GOP has laid the groundwork for a labor bill issue With complaints that the administration wants to curry union favor at the expense of other elements. Opponents of the Taft-Hartley measure say the bill takes away essential labor rights and would increase industrial strife. Message Today The White House has announced that Mr. Truman will send Congress a message on the tax bill tomorrow. Thus it should be known soon after noon whether there will be an income tax cut this year. Leaders of both parties have said that a veto means no cut. as there is not sufficient Continued on Page 7, Column 3 Reds Exploiting Eastern Europe, Acheson Says MIDDLETOWN. June 15.

In extremely biunt language, Ache-aon charged Russia with fomenting trouble in Eurote. the middle east and the orient. The Soviet dis mantled industries in Manchuria, ob structed unification of Korea and brought turmoil in Iran, he said. In what may be his last speech as a top foreign policy official, he told the graduatin gclass at Wesleyan university that recent Soviet action in Hungary was a "cynical and barefaced coup d'etat" whkn should be no surprise in view of Soviet postwar ac tion in Eastern Europe. It was probably Acheson's vale dictorv as undersecretary. He steps back into private life at the end oi tiiis month. In his address Acheson: 1 Justified American foreign policy for the past six or seven years as "true to traditions of our republic and to the interests of the American people." 2 Accused the Soviet Union of pre venting attainmert of great power imitv bv following policies "diamet rically opposed to the very premises international accord and recovery." 3 Called upon the United States to continue to expose "tne snams ana frauds behind which peoples are de prived of their liberty by little groups supported Dy joreign power. 4 Urged the United States to help within the limits of our own capacity hrvsn who wish to help themselves." Acheson read the roll of International actions taken by the United States in an effort to restore peace and said: "No people has ever given more tangible or extensive evidence of its good will and Intention.

(JP) The McGowan home in Mis-hawaka swarmed vith dogs for a while today after Leonard O. Mc-Gowan's seven sons each brought him a dog as a Father's Day gift, but the recipient decided that one a black cocker spaniel was enough and the others were returned to the South Bend city dog pound.

(JP) Each minute of every human being's life about 150,000 radioactive carbon atoms go pop in his body, and these atomic explosions release a total energy of 21,000,000,000 electron volts. This calculation, based on a discovery at the Houdry Process Corp. plant here that cosmic rays produce radioactive carbon, was made today by Dr. Aristide V. Grosse, of the Houdry Co. The implications are astonishing, not because the 21,000,000,000 electron volts is in itself high for radioactivity, but because the occurrence of this charge all through the living body will result in a reexamination of such things as human immunity to a certain level of radioactivity, the possible effects as a cause of cncerand whether atom bombs are likely to cause as serious hereditary changes as some scientists have predicted. If man Is subject all his life to this carbon radioacticity, it possibly WASHINGTON, June 15. OP) Chances for admission of 400,000 homeless European war refugees to the United States tumbled today with word from a House Republican leader that there is scant likelihood of the bill's passage this session.
