PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, AUGUST t«, 1954 Blasts Adenauer By TOM REEDY BERLIN (AP) — A West German Parliament deputy from Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's Christian Democratic party, who defected to the Communists a week ago, told an East Berlin news conference today he fears the Adenauer government "with American prodding" is driving Germany toward war and ruin. The Communist Eastern govern- , ment triumphantly presented former Parliament D p u t y Karl Scbmidt-Wittaiack to an international press conference in the Soviet sector today, just as they did . former West German security chief Otto John on Aug. 11. The 40-year-old schmidt-Witt- mack, who was deputy chairman of Adenauer's CDU party in Hamburg, crossed into the East just a week ago with his wife and daughter. West German authorities have! ruefully admitted that, as a member of key parliamentary committees on German rearmament and Western anti-Communist work in the East, he could betray many secrets to the Reds. Before he fled, be emptied his office files. Speakrag today so several hundred foreign and German correspondents in the Soviet sector press headquarters, Schmidt - Wittmacfc echoed many of the anti-Adenauer and anti - American sentiments voiced two weeks ago by John in his public unveiling. - • . Lacks Suavity However, ne lacked.the suavity and command with which John spoke. Schmidt - Wittmack raced through passages of his prepared speech .as though in a hurry to get through, mumbling inaudibly at times and slurring his words. He said Western charges that 'he had been a traitor are "ridiculous" because bis intent is to "defend Germany and to work for German unity." He assailed what he called the Western goal of rearming Germans to point them eastward. And he asserted these are the Allied-, Adenauer plans: 1. West German rearmament will go- ahead whether inside the European Defense Community or outside "it. • 2. The plans have already been drawn up for army, navy and air force by a committee headed by Gen. Alfred Gruenther, U.S. commander in chief of the North Atlantic Pact forces in Europe and Gen. Adolf Heusinger, veteran German officer who is Adenauer's .top military adviser. 3. The Gruenther - Heusinger committee has fixed Nov. 1 as target date to activate the new German Wehrmacht. Attacking EDC, Schmidt-Witt- mack said he had concluded after long thought that it would "merely be the instrument" for Germany's eventual destruction in a new war. To speak out against it in his CDU party councils "was impossible," he said. Ike and Hoover Going Fishing DENVER (£>} — President Eisenhower and former President Hoover, a couple of experts with a trout rod, are going fishing together next week in the Colorado Rockies. The Summer White House announced today that Hoover will be Eisenhower's guest "for several days" at a ranch retreat at Fraser.

Russia Outdistancing U .5. in Technicians LOS ANGELES UP) — Russia is outdistancing the United States in the training of technicians, a manager for the Stanford Research Institute says. Dr. A. M.

He was here as a delegate from the United Free Church of Scot- Leading Jet Ace Killed in Crash Copt. Joe McConnell Dies as Test Flight Ends in Crack-Up EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (/?)—Death on a routine test flight has ended the spectacular career of Capt. Joseph McConnell Jr., the nation's leading jet ace. The 32-year-old pilot, credited with downing 16 MIGs in Korea, was killed yesterday when his F86H Sabre Jet crashed on the Mojave Desert, 12 miles northeast of Rogers Lake. His body was found beside his ejection seat, half a mile from the shattered plane. Nearby was his unopened parachute. An Air Force spokesman said apparently he had ejected himself from the plane at low altitude. During the flight McConnell had radioed that he had lost control of the plane partially, but thought he could make a landing on the dry lake bed. Soon thereafter he reported he had lost the cockpit canopy. He was advised to bail out. Edwards base officers said he probably stayed with the plan? too long. McConnell, who said his prematurely grey hair came from being the father of three young children and not from his flying, served as a bomber navigator during World War II and later took flight training. After the fighting broke out in Korea he repeatedly requested combat duty despite being told he was too old. His request finally was granted and he became an ace in just 30 days last year. After downing his eighth MIG, his Sabre was hit by cannon 'fire at 40,000 feet near the Manchurian border. He bailed out over the Yellow Sea and a rescue helicopter pulled him from the frigid water. After his 16th kill, the Air Force grounded him and ordered him home with the comment that he was ''much more valuable alive than dead." The plane he flew . yesterday was a modified version of the Sabre Jet he used in Korea.
