THURSDAY. AUGUST 26, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Red Spokesman Says New Act Outlawing It NEW YORK (AP) — A spokesman for the Communist party says it will not bow to the new law outlawing it. He says there will be a court test of the law, signed this week by President Eisenhower, if and when the government moves to curtail any Communist party activities.

Citywide Negro Evangelistic Movement Eyed The Blytheville Interdemonina- tional Negro Ministerial Alliance, in a special meeting last night, discussed the possibility of a commu- nitywide Negro evangelistic movement to be directed by former world heavyweight boxing champion Jersey Joe Walcott. Walcott, now an evangelist, is slated to arrive here tomorrow with his manager, Rev. Russell Roberts of Atlantic City; N. J., and will speak tomorrow at 8 p.m. at a special program to be conducted in the Harrison High School gymnasium. Also on the program will be the Pilgrim Travelers, Negro singing group. Guests will be welcomed to the; city by Mayor E. R. Jackson, who will present a key to the city to Walcott. Rev. J. W. Knowles, president of the alliance, announced that the annual election of offi cers for the group will be conducted next month. VARGAS CONFERENCE Continued from Page 1 area. An antisubversion pledge to deal with one characteristic type of Communist aggression is without precedent in treaty-making procedure. There was believed to be general recognition among the nations concerned of the need for meeting this form of attack. The third question — that of a continuing SEATO machinery — also drew widely ranging concepts. Proposals vary from creation of an NATO-like military headquarters with a joint staff to a plan for a secretariat representing the eight countries. i Continued from Page 1) was throwing its support behind Cafe. The new President made a personal visit to the Senate chamber, where he was told Sen. Costa Paranos planned to attack the new government for jailing 31 union leaders. The group was arrested Tuesday as a security measure. Cafe asked Paranos not to make the speech and said he was ordering the immediate release of the unionists. Cafe was exiled to Argentina for opposing Vargas' 1937 coup in which the President assumed dictatorial powers. He returned to Brazil in 1938 and after being reconciled with Vargas was elected vice president on the same ticket in 1951. £25 Bomber Missing SACRAMENTO. Calif.

Monmouth, N.J.; Allied trade with Chinese Reds; the government's supersecret Central Intelligence Agency; State Department files and personnel; the Government Printing Oiffice; the United Nations: the Mutual Security Administration, the handling of some tax cases, defense stockpiling, suspected Reds in defense plants, fraudulent social security claims, possible waste and corruption in Alaska. Other Senate and House committees dug into such things as: Alleged labor racketeering and misuse of union welfare funds; Soviet seizure and abuse of the Balkan states; travel and expense allowances of federal judges; the Voice of America: a compound to soup up batteries: a reported shortage of ammunition for American forces in Korea; charges of election irregularities: the social security system; operations of the Justice Department; the Office of Alien Property: the synthetic rubber program: U.S. housing in Germany: Reds in defense plants: the plunge of a passenger train into Washington's Union Station: juvenile delinquency; tax-exempt foundations. And that isn't all. To the accompaniment of widespread protests from churchmen, the Un-American Activities Committee edged into the field of communism in the clergy. One of its members. Rep. Jackson (R-Calif), told the House that Methodist Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam "served God on Sunday and the Communist front the rest of the week." Got A Hearing Oxnam demanded and got a hearing — 10 hours on the witness stand in which he acknowledged he had belonged to some organizations later cited as subversive but brnaded much about him in the committee files as untrue. In the end the committee adopted a motion declaring it "has no record of any Communist party membership or affiliation by Bishop Oxnam." After backtracking down the trail of former government officials accused of having served Soviet spy rings, the Senate Internal Security subcommittee produced a report saying unexposed espionage networks still might be operating in the government. On the basis of secret testimony, it said in another report that Communist conspirators were flooding the country with propaganda and had hidden printing equipment to carry on in the event of war. The subcommittee, under Chairman Jenner (R-Ind), and the Un- American Activities Committee both took up the search for Communists in schools and colleges— a search that brought a number of faculty firings and suspensions. Ammo Shortages Hit A Senate subcommittee concluded "there was needless loss of American lives" because of ammunition shortages in Korea. It blamed policy makers of the Truman administration for miscalculating the "aggressive designs of international communism." A special House committee recommended that the free world make a concerted break in trade and diplomatic relations with Red governments. A House subcommittee reported it had found "shocking inefficiency" in past administrations in the Justice Department and criticized handling of tax, liquor and antitrust cases. A Democratic member j said parts of the report were "false." A Senate committee that investigated juvenile delinquency said it had learned of serious drug addiction among young people and that traffic in "insidious filth"—books, pictures, cartoons, recordings — had become big business netting perhaps 100 to 300 million dollars a year. "Lawless Frontiers" A Senate subcommittee reported] that waterfronts on all coasts are I "lawless frontiers," 'New York Senator Lashes NLRB Decisions Murray Says Rulings 'Anti-Labor'; Sees Backward Step WASHINGTON (#J Sen. Murray (D-Mont) today assailed as "anti- labor" several recent decisions handed down by the National Labor Relations Board and predicted one of them would take labor "back to" the days of the yellow dog contract." Murray, senior Democrat oh the Senate Labor Committee, led a losing fight last winter against confirmation of Albert C. Beeson, the third Eisenhower administration nominee on the five-member board. Sen. Ives (R-NY),,also a Labor Committee m e m 'b e r, disagreed sharply with Murray's analysis of recent NLRB decisions. He said in a separate interview: ''The NLRB under the New and 'Fair Deals' tended to reflect the position of organized labor in many three of its five members named respects. The present board, with by President Eisenhower, seems to be trying to strike a balance between the powerful pressures of labor and management." Hints of Trouble The disagreement between the two senators underlined difficulties Eisenhower may run into if, as he says he will, he asks congress anew for Taft-Hartley labor law revisions next year. The Senate .pigeonholed Eisenhower's plan for changing the law last spring. Some administration critics have charged since then that the GOP-appointed board majority has, through its decisions, made things tougher on labor. Murray cited for particular criticism an NLRB decision early this month that an employer may legally question his employes about their union affiliation or activities if no implication of reprisal—or of beneft—is involved. The 3-2 decsion was voted by the three Eisenhower appointees and opposed by the two holdovers from the Truman administration. It reversed a long-established rule which two holdovers said had been in effect Since the early days of the NLRB, Murray commented: "This decision gives employers the right to call in employees individually prior to a union election and force them to submit to prolonged inquisition as to whether or not they believe in trade unionism. It takes us back to the days of the yellow dog contract and highlights a whole series of interpretations which have been made since Eisenhower appointees became a majority on the board." NEHRU (Continued from Page 1) Ainbedkar said. a, Xew Roles Earlier in the debate Nehru found himself in the unusual role of defending the United States when he told Communist questioners he does not believe the Americans are sending or will send arms to the Portuguese Indian settlements India wants to take over. P. Sundarayya, leader of the Communist party in Parliament, had asked if American guns were being "flown into Goa," the largest of the three territories on the west coast. "I do not think the United States is sending arms," Nehru replied, "I do not believe they will." When Sundarayya persisted, claiming he could produce evi- j dence of such shipments, Nehru (shouted back as delegates cheered: "I'm in a better position to know than my honorable friend and I think we should not care, even if anyone sends arms. A few more arms or few more soldiers will make no difference or pose no threat to India." Turning to coexistence with the Communists, Nehru said the "only alternative is a world war — co- destruction." He added: "Whether one likes the present state of affairs in the world or not, one has in fact to choose between a policy which is likely to lead to war in the biggest scale and acceptance of the general approach meant by the word co-existence." Mother and Two Children Slain GARDENTON. Man., (& — A \oung mother and her two children were strangled yesterday at a farm on the edge of this southern Manitoba town. Her husband was ar- resied and charged with murder. The dead were Mrs. Olga Storo- schuk, 24. Jean. 4U, and Brian, 2. Police said Walter Storoschuk, about 24, walked into a hardware store and told of the killing. No motive was determined.

The office of Gov.

Jenner's subcommittee, in another report, said a Communist fifth column, including some Americans, was operating in the United Nations secretariat. One of the most rough-and-tumble hearings of them all was the investigation into operations of tax-exempt foundations by a special House committee. Members fought with witnesses and among themselves. Democrats walked angrily out at one point. Public hearings were called off after only one side was heard — the foundation critics. A high spot: Rep. Wayne L. Hays (D-Ohio) read some statements on labor policy which committee official Thomas M. McNiece said closely paralleled Communist literature and ideals. Then Hays sprang the trap. The statements, he announced were by Popes Leo Xm and Pius XI. OPENS 6:45 EACH NIGHT SHOW STARTS AT DUSK 2 SHOWS EVERY N!TE!
