MONTH'S BAG OF MIGS NOW 32 Kids Polio Carnival Is Big Success; Stork in Sideshow Violent Closh NearSinuiju Follows Night Raid on Repaired Changjin Power Plant by B-29s. By AMselatrd PriM SEOUL, Korea — The U. S. Fifth Air Force said U. S. Sabre jet pilots shot down at least five Russian-built jets, and damaged 12 others today in violent clashes near Suiho Dani and Sinuiju in extreme Northwest Korea. A swarm of 100 Red jets crossed the Yalu River from Manchuria less than 24 hours after U. N. fighter bombers in record number i?"riday dealt the North Korean capital of Pyongyang one of the heaviest blows of the war. Seventy-nine Sabres engaged the Red jets — the largest Communist air ai-madas to appear in months. The Air Force said one of the 12 damaged Red fighters probably was destroyed. The fiery battle upped the U. N. toll for August to a record of 32 MIGs destroyed, three probably destroyed and 42 damaged — the tS&st morithl^' record of the war. U. N. losses, if any, were not announced. They will be covered in a weekly summary due next Friday. Dawn-to-Dusk Strike Friday's giant dawn-to-dusk strike against Communist army and political nerve centers and factories at Pyongyang was carried out with few if any U. N. plane losses, the Fifth Air Force indicated. The Navy said none of its carrier-based fighter-bombers which flow 250 sorties of the record 1,443 individual flights over Pyongyang was shot down. In its summary for the week ended Friday, the Air Force said three U. N. planes were lost to ground fire and one to unexplained causes the past seven days. Whether they were on the Pyongyang raid was not disclosed. Bomb Power Plant Seventeen Japan-based B-29 Su- perforts Friday night followed up the three-wave Pyongyang assault with a raid on newly repaired Red power installations at the Chang­ jin Reservoir in Northeast Korea. U. N. planes bombed and strafed Communist targets other than Pyongyang Friday to boost the day's total of flights to a record 1,775. U. S. Sabre jet pilots shot down one Russian-built MIG Friday and damaged two other Red jets, the Air Force reported. No Red fighters i-eached Pyongyang. On the Korean ground front, Communist and Allied troops sparred lightly again Friday and early today. DON'T WORRY ABOUT LOW IQ AsciciatctJ r OS-" D.4LLAS--If you've got a low IQ and it's worrying you — don't let it. That's the advice of a Southern Methodist University psychology professor. Dr. A. Q. Sartrain told a Dallas business club Friday that: 1. Intelligence test aren't always accurate, and 2. Their importance is probably exaggerated, anyhow. Last night was an exciting night for the Frank Hall family of No. 2 Rushton Drive. Their back yard was the happy scene of a "kid's carnival" to raise money for the polio fund. Then during the hustle and bustle Mrs. Hall was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital, where she gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. It was Mrs. Hall, along with a dozen youngsters of then eighbor- hood, who got up the idea to have a carnival to earn money for the polio fund. Mrs. Hall and the kids, ranging in ages from 4 to 14 years, worked hard on the idea. They publicized it with a parade Wednesday. In the back yard of the Hall home, they set up carnival booths including a penny pitch, ring toss, fish game and other typical carnival games. Everything was in readiness late yesterday. Then, at 6:00 p. m,, Mrs. Hall had to g;o to the hospital. At 6:30 the carnival started. Mr. Hall was the busiest man in town. He rushed back and forth—between hospital and carnival—throughout the evening. At 10:58 p. m. Mrs. tHall gave birth to an eight pound, four ounce son. He has been named Richard Kendall. Mother ahd baby are doing fine. Mr. Hall is doing all right, too. He was in a happy frame of mind, and still excited, this morning as he reported two news items — birth of his son and success of the carnival. The carnival was a rip-roaring success. The kids took in pennies and nickles by the hundreds and it all added up to $106—a big night for the youngsters and a helpful contribution to the polio chapter. Carnival prizes were donated by local merchants and the electricity was furnished by the Illinois Power Co. CHARGE BOY, 16. IMPERSONATED THE RESIDENT Signed Truman's Name to Letter Asking for $2,000 Donation. By AiiBisiaUd Press DENVER—The FBI jailed a 16- year-old Basion, Wyo., boy Friday and charged him with "impersonating a federal officer — to vvit, Harry S. Truman. FBI Agent George C. Curton said the boy, whose name was withheld, attempted to diipe an 83-year-old widow df. $2,000 by mailing her a letter purporting to be from President Tifuman. Burton said tfie letter "#SlrmaHed from Plymouth, Mich., aft^r the boy ran out of funds there on a hitch-hiking trip. ' Previously the boy had obtained $200 from the widow by calling at her home and posing as an agent of the "U. S. Secret Ranger Service" who needed the money to fight communism. The boy was bound over for trial in an appearance at Basin before U. S. Commissioner J. R. Barnwell. However, Burton said he may only face standard delinquency charges. The FBI said the boy wrote this letter; 'This is a very important letter from me, the President of the United States of America. "I am asking a great favorfrom you. Read every word of this: "There is a boy in Plymouth, Mich., where I am at. He has no legs nor no arms and I was in hopes that you would send this boy $2,000.00 two thousand dollars for new arms and legs which were shot off fighting for his country. "Do not let anyone else read this letter or yoii will ^et into plenty of trouble. "Please send the money right away as soon as you get this letter do not wait one day to send it. "Yours truly, "Harry S. Truman "Pres of U. S. "P. S.—Send it right away. "Burn this envelope and letter!"

Y. — Casualty figures for United Nations forces in Korea are climbing steadily, reflecting bitter fighting waged during the deadlocked truce talks, an Associated Press survey showed today. # Dead and wounded for the 17- nation force fighting under the U. N. flag now total 262,421, an increase of 29,288 since an AP survey in April. Overall casualty figures, including dead, wounded and missing, total 384,609. The April survey ~ based on figures supplied by delegates of countries figriting in Korea—gave total casualties as 419,456. South • Korean officials since have revised their list of missing, however, dropping 63,000 from the April roU. In ownparwon to the U. N. to. tals, the last U. S. Army estimate of Communist Chinese and North Korea military casualties —- issued in June — gave an overall figure of 1,623,404. There was no attempt to break this down into dead, wounded and missing, however. The Republic of Korea has had the most dead and wounded of any of the nations ranged under the U. N. flag — 37,167 dead, 112,427 wounded. The United States is next with 18,301 dead and 85,298 wounded based on this week's pentagon report. The U. S. also lists 1,611 known prisoners and 11,042 missing, bringing its current casualty total to 116,252. This is an increase of 1,403 U. S. killed and 7,062 wounded since the April tabulatioa By Aitaeiated Prcti TOKYO.—Three U. S. warships began an almost immediate search last Wednesday midnight for survivors of the Navy tug Sarsi, which hit a mine off Korea and sank without a chance to call for help, the Navy said today. Quickness of the search probably was largely responsible for 92 of the tug's 9T crewmen being paved. Fpur pf .the- survivors—due at-'the iSas'ebo Navy Base, Soiith-^ ern Japan today—were seriously hurt. The Navy said two crewmen were killed and three missing. The 205-foot Sarsi sank in 120 feet of water within 20 minutes after hitting the mine three miles off Hungnam, the Korean East Coast port from U. N. forces were evacuated during the first Com munist offensive in December, 1950. The Navy said the explosion destroyed the Sarsi's communica tion equipment. But the captains of the destroyer Body and minesweepers Zeal and Competent be came concerned when they could not make radio contact with the Sarsi and began an immediate search. ^ The three ships arrived at the scene of the disaster within 30 minutes. Those killed were identified as Stewart 2C Hampton Curtis Carter of San Diego and Chief Quartermaster Raymond Shirley Parrish, whose parents live at Eldorado, 111^ Say McGrath To Testify on St. L Scandals By Associated Prtss WASHINGTON — Justice Department critics had a new stock of ammunition today.— the details of a six-year failure to prosecute a Detroit war fraud case, uncovered by House investigators. And there was a report the judiciary subcommittee investigating the department may have an important new witness soon; Former Atty.-Gen. J. Howard McGrath. The Providence Journal-Bulletin said it learned that McGrath has agreed to testify during the week of Sept. 15 on another case — the St. Louis tax fraud scandals. Several committee members have charged the department dragged its feet in the St. Louis case, too. Regarding the Detroit war fraud incident. Rep. Keating (R-N. Y.), a committee member, loosed a bl«st at the influence he said political lawyers have had. Referring to the case of Norman E. Miller, head of an engineering firm, indicted for fraud in 1944 but never brought to trial, Keating told a reporter: "This is a case where an indicted law violator was ahle to bring enough pressure to bear on officials in the Justice Department through influential lawyers, including a Democratic National Committeeman, not only to escape prosecution but any liability for civil damages."

The mystei'ious flareup stopped work at the project for the second time in two weeks, but no picket lines were set up by the 13 AFL 1 'ons involved. The only ones remaining on the job were laborers, carpenters, cement finishers and electricians, according to E. A. Wende, project manager for the Atomic Energy Commission. Yesterday. was the last work day until Tuesday. The walkout was blamed on the manner in which 200 operating engineers were disjharged Thursday by the prime contractor, F. H. J'cGraw and Co., a spokesman for the operating engineer union said. The spokesman, who declined to be named, said the union contends it should have selected those to be released or, at least, should have been consulted in the matter. The company claimed the men were let out by strict seniority in a "forced reduction" mve. The pact signed last week has been described as a formula for preventing unauthorized work stopoages and picket lines. It came after settlement of a 10-day walkout by pipefitters and carpenters, and gives McGraw the right to discharge workers who take part in wildcat strikes. Unions also promised to discipline such workers." HUNTEDMAN ISCAPTURED Comes Out of the Woods and Nabbed Without Fight. '10M0OO GIFT BY U. S. IS PROPOSED Would Moke GranMf Iron Lefs World Court Set Price for Confiscoted Oil Property. BRITAIN WOULD HALT BLOCKADE Personal Offer by Truman and Churchill Mode in Fear of Red Seizure of Persia. IS MALIK CHARGES IKE CAMPAIGNS ON WAR THREAT By Asseeiafed Prtts UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. — Chief Soviet Delegate Jacob Malik accused Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower Friday night of campaigning for the U. S. presidency on the threat of an arms race and World War III. The Russian's attack came during a speech rejecting Western proposals for Big Five arms reduction talks. Malik claimed the Republicans candidate, in speaking • to the American Legion Convention last Monday, "told them with cynical candor that the basis of his foreign policy, if elected, would be a mad armament race and likewise then unleasing of a third world war." He said the general was "trying to make his mark as a warmonger." Puts Words In Ike's Mouth Malik, however, was putting words in the general's mouth. Eisenhower actually told the legion America needs security forces "whose destructive and retaliatory power is so great nthat it causes nightmares in the Kremlin whenever they think of attacking us." Malik peppered his long rejection speech before the 12-nation Disarmament Commission with attacks on the Western powers, particularly the United States. He accused the U. S. of seeking world domination by , putting forth proposals that would delay arms reduction "and squeeze pofits out of the world by iti monopoliea." By Associated Press ST. LOUIS. — William Merle Martin, 42, one of the FBI's 10 most wanted men, was captured in South St. Louis early today a short time aftef he came out of the brush in search of food. His trousers were torn off at the knees and his legs were badly scratched from hiding two days in a rugged rural area south of here. Martin's arrest came a few hours after another man on the FBI's most wanted list was cap- lured at Texas City, Tex. Taken into custody there was Joseph Franklin Bent Jr., 25. St. Louis police arrested Martin after receiving a tip that a man answering his description had taken a car belonging to a deputy sheriff in nearby Jefferson County and was heading toward St. Louis. Martin had been the object of an intensive search in a rough region of Western St. Louis County since late Wednesday when he fled into the fields after a car he was driving was forced off the road. Martin said he came out of the woods Friday night in an effort to find something to eat. He said he had not eated since noon Wednesday. He was unarmed and surrendered without resistance to patrolmen Edward Witt and Francis Boyer, saying: "You got me, officer." Martin was placed on the most wanted list in connection with the slaying of Deputy Sheriff-Wiliard Carver near Olathe, Kan.-, June 23. Carver was shot down when, he stopped to question twp men in a stalled truck. Bent Wounded At Texas City, FBI agents wounded Bent before he was captured. He had boasted he would never be taken alive. He started to run after 'agents stopped his car and his flight was stopped by a slight flesh wound in the righ thigh. Bent is chargted in three states with armed robbery, assault and attempted murder and is under 25-year sentence for robbing a post-office at Grand Junction, Colo. SMALL CHILD ELECTROCUTED By Associated Prist WASHINGTON — The United States and Britain today proposed a three point settlement of the Anglo-Iranian oil crisii, including a grant of $10,000,000 from the United States to Iran. -•• The offer was made personally by President Truman and Prime Minister Churchill to Iranian Premier Mossadegh. This extraordinary personal participation by the two western leaders stressed the' gravity with which London and Washington regard the possibility of a Communist seizure of power in • the strategic middle eastern country? The.' president and prime min­ ister'said they "sincerely hope'' their proposals for action will meet Mossadegh's "approval "and result inr a satisfactory solution." The three prpposal^-were ^aresenti ,: ed by the ambassadors in "Tehran at 3:30 p. m. Tehran time (6:30 a: m. CST). In essence they are: 1. Submission to the World Court of the question of compensation to be paid to the Anglo-Iranion Oil Company (AIOC) for its property in Iran, nationalized 18 moths ago. The claims and counterclaims of both Iran and AIOC are to be fully considered. 2. Appointment of "suitable representatives" for the Iranian government and the AIOC to negotiate "arrrangements for the flow of oil from Iran to world markets." 3. If the Iranian government accepts the first two points, this is proposed: (a) AIOC. will release for immediate sale 20 million to 30 million dollars of oil now held in Iran by a sort of legal blackade. (b) Britain will relax restrictions on exports to Iran and on Iran's use of British sterling and (c) the-United States "will make an immediate grant of $10,000,000 to the Iranian government to assist in their budgetary problem." The S it a t e Department announced the proposals in a special statement this morning. A joint announcement also was arranged in London. Iran has been without oil income for approximately a year. The United States' offer of a $10,'DOO,000 grant was made to help meet resulting problems quickly. Acceptance Is Unlikely Last Wednesday American Ambassador Loy Henderson and the ranking British diplomat in Iran, George Middleton, conferred hours with Mossadegh on proposals which the United States and Britain might make—presumably much the same proposition they actually made today—and went away looking very glum. As a result of their talks. Western officials seie only a slight chance of Mossadegh's accepting the new proposals.
