MONDAY, JUNE 26, 1050 BLYT1TEVTM.E (AKK.y COURIER NEWS Eyes of World's Capitals On Washington, Not Seoul By The AuoeUUd Prex • Hurried consultations in the world's capitals followed (irst news of the Communist invasion of the ^wthern republic of Korea Sunday. ^Britain's House of Commons looked for a statement on the situation from Prime Minister Clement Attlee today. Commons was prepared k> Interrupt, a debate on the Labor government's policy — and its demand for a vote of confidence—on keeping Britain out ot the French-proposed coal-steel production pool. But a well-Informed Dutch source congress, summed up the general feeling nf- ter an emergency meeting of key Dutch cabinet members: "The eyes of the world are on Washington rather than on Seoul." he said. 'It is up to the United States to take a hnnd In Korea, or western prestige will drop all over the world." In London. Kenneth Younger acting head of the foreign office broke a weekend holiday outside London to confer with foreign office experts. Schuman Confers In Paris. Foreign Minister Robert SchAnnan—a caretaker cabinet official since the Bidault cabinet tos out in a vote of confidence Saturday—talked with Ills far easten advisers. Jules Modi, lender ot the Socialis party which precipitated the cab n_et crisis in France, remarked the n affair "is certainly more rious than our own crisis. Every effort should be made to localize the conflict." The French have a similar problem in Viet-Nam. where the Communist forces of Ho Chi Minh are a threat to the French-supported Bao Dai, who is also recognized by the United States. . Russia's reaction was to distribute belatedly a report by Tass. the official news agency, that south Koreans invaded Communist north Korea—not the other way around. The Tass report, based on two com- muniques of the north Korean Communists, Is at variance with every other report. The Communist communiques said the south Koreans invaded at three points, advancing from a half mile to six kilometers, but were thrown back by "guard detachments"— police — across the 38th parallel which is a border for the two areas. The Communist press of eastern Europe Immediately distributed the Tass accounts. Routine for Pravda Moscow's Pravda handled the story In routine fashion, publishing the north Korean communique on page three along with three telegrams from western press agencies with New York, London and Paris datelines. J^K^ugoslavia, which has accused several Cominform neighbor countries of mustering troops to threaten her, ordered her United Nations representative to attend the emergency security council meeting Sunday. He did, and abstained on voting for a cease fire order because the council declined to bring a north Korean into the meeting to give the north Korean viewpoint. In Tokyo, John Foster Dulles and General MacArthur conferred again Dulles, Republican adviser to the State Department, was scheduled to leave today for Washington to report on his trip to the Far East which included an inspection trip last week to Korea. A spokesman for General Mac- Perjury Conviction of Reds Explained By C! AKKK BEACH WASHINGTON—Communists are learning that it's sometimes more dangerous to tell lies or to refuse to talk than tt Is to try to overthrow the government. Very few Communists Have ever been convicted under statutes designed to curb subversive activities. A great many have been convicted of perjury, making false written statements or contempt of This new wrinkle in the attack on American Reds recalls the similarly oblique approach which the government found effective in lighting the acketeers of the 1930s. The govern- nent knew pretty much about the crimes of the racketeers—murder extortion, blackmail, etc.; yet it seldom had enough evidence to con vict them. But when the Treasury Department went after them for inconn tax evasion, Al Capone a:id some of his peers were lodged bcliinc bars for long terms. It curlwd the! criminal activities at least tor th time they were in jail, and it in spired great respect for the incom tax laws. Government agents hav found that big-time bookmnkers an gamblers today pay their incom taxes with puritanical correctnes The Federal government has abou 28 statutes intended in one way c another to make subversive activities illegal—from the Smith Act, which forbids conspiracies to overthrow the government by force, to the law which forbids mailing indecent literature. (Subversive literature is defined as indecent.) The Communists are careful not to get caught violating these statutes. The only persons who have ever beeti convicted for Communist activities, as such, were the 11 Red leaders who were convicted recently in New York under the Smith Act. Some notable characters, however, have recently been convicted of perjury (lying orally while under oath) or of making false written affidavits. Harry Bridges, president of the CIO Longshoremen's Union, was convicted in April in a West Coast federal court and sentenced to five years. He was charged with lying when lie swore he never had been a Communist when he applied for citizenship papers in 1945. Alger Hiss's conviction was for perjury in telling a grand jury that he had never given State Department documents to Whlltaker Chambers and that he had not seen Chambers after Jan. 1. 1931. Giving State Department documents to a Communist might have been grounds for an espionage charge against Hiss, Arthur said munitions; and material including .10 fighter :planes were be 7 ing 'readied for shipment with naval and air escort to south Korea. ut no such charge could be pressed ecause the legal three-year limi or prosecution had passed. Persons convicted of lying under ath regarding Communist activity iclude Harold R. Christoffel, a for- ler president of a labor union at he Allts-Chahners plant in Mil- 'aukee; and Carl Aldo Marzani. a ormer State Department employe. "Dozens of witnesses before Congres- ional committees who refused to ay whether they were Commun- sts have been convicted in the past ew years. Since 1946 there have >een 34 such convictions in Wash- ngton alone. The act making contempt of Con- jress a crime was passed in 1851. There have been more convictions under that act In the past two years nan all Us previous history. "What effect are these convictions having on Communists?" this re- [Jorlcr asked George Morris Fay, U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. "These particular defendants will have a greater respect for congressional committees," Fay replied. "And the convictions should deter others from committing perjury or exhibiting disrespect for authority." Red Loses 400 Pounds in Hole SMYRNA, Tenn., June 26. (AP) —Red can walk in the EUH asaln and munch the gra-ss and feed that may restore the 400 pounds she lost. The five-year-old Jersey cow fell into a dank, 10-fool-deep sink hole six weeks and two days before she was pulled out by an auto wrecker yesterday. Bobby and Thomas Maxwell heard some mournful moos as they] walked across a field Saturday, "That sounds like Red," l.hcy said. They saw the sink hole, looked in, and there she was. Their father, Sidney Maxwell, thought his cow hail been stolen when she disappeared May 12. Thirty persons gathered for the rescue. A chain of grass .sacks was lilted under Red and the wrecker hoisted her out. "She looked like a skeleton," said Leslie Wright, an electrician. "We started pulling weeds and jrass and she ate it all >nd walked my.* Maxwell said the cow hid wuUd away from 900 to 500 pounds.
