f MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1952 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 13 REDS DISCLOSE NOEL AND HERMAN FIELDARRESTED American Brothers, and Wife and Daughter of One, Long Missing. •' By Associated Prut VIENNA, Austria—An Austrian Communist newspaper admitted today that the Reds arrested the missing American Field brothers, Noel and Hermann, who disappeared behind the Iron Curtain three years ago. Since Noel Field, former State Department employe, vanished in Prague in May, 1949, and his brother Hermann, a Cleveland, O., architect, disappeared in Warsaw in August, 1949, one thing has never been clear: Were they kidnaped, along with Noel's German-born wife, Herta, and his adopted daughter, or did they flee the West of 'their own free will? The Communists, in their various "show" trials including the § resent accusation of Rudolph lansky and others in Prague, always have contended the Fields worked for the wartime U. S. Office of Strategic Services and were American spies. In the West, however, there have been many suggestions that the brothers were double agents and that Noel, especially, worked for the Soviet Union. It was over this doubtful point that the Vienna Red newspaper Volksstimme today disclosed their arrest. It was wrong, said the newspaper, to call the Fields "American Communists." ' "In reality, neither regarded themselves as Communists," the paper explained. "After their arrest, the American State Department voluntarily said they had a special mission." This was the first time any Communist organ had spoken of the Fields' "arrest." . The State Department frequently Mas sought information . from Czechoslovakia and Poland about the missing pair but never received a satisfactory reply. Noel Field disappeared after checking out of a Prague hotel, ostensibly to go to Budapest. Hermann Field boarded a plane for Prague in Warsaw but never arrived. Noel's wife, Herta, vanished at the Prague airport while awaiting her brother-in-law's arrival. Noel's adopted daughter, Mrs. Robert Wallach, vanished among the ruins of Berlin in 1950 after arriving from Paris, presumably on a hunt for her foster parents. In the current Prague trial, the prosecution has alleged that Slansky, former Czech Foreign Mjpis- ter Vlado Clementis' and others were hired as "imperialist agents" by the Fields, some of them as long ago as 1939. SISTER LIVES IN URBANA In Urbana, 111., Dr. Elsie H. Field, a sister said the Volks- stimmie story confirmed what the state department has known for sometime—that my brothers were arrested, or kidnapped." Dr, Field said the story should settle in the public mind the question of whether they fled the west voluntarily or against their will. "The family," she said, "knew perfectly well they didn't go over voluntarily." The sister expressed regret that the newspaper did not identify what country had arrested them and that it did not say whether or not it was speaking as an official organ of a communist government. Dr. Field is the wife of Prof. Joseph L. Doob, a mathematician at the University. of Illinois. Reds Have 491 Divisions Lined Up on Borders By Associated Press WASHINGTON — The State Department estimates total Communist Army strength at 491 divisions, mostly located along borders facing the non-Communist world, Russia was s-id to have 181 divisions and other Soviet-controlled countries 310 divisions, including 250 belonging to Red China. An average Communist division is estimated at 10,000 men. In its booklet entitled "Let Freedom Ring," issued Sunday, the department gave no total figure for non-Communist strength but told of plans for a 75 : division army under the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

VERNON BOARD OF REALTORS New Congress May Rewrite Taft-Hartley Ey Atioclattd Preti WASHINGTON —Signs on Capitol Hill pointed today to a major rewriting of the nation's labor law by the new Republican 83vd Congress — possibly even junking the Taft-Hartley Act. ^ Rep. McConnell (R-Pa.) who steps up to the chairmanship of the House Labor Committee in the GOP-controlled Congress told a reporter: "We are certainly going to have changes in the laboi'-manngement relations law. I certainly anticipate them, but how they will be made I can't yet say." Sen. Taft (R-Ohio) wants to keep the law that bears his name, but revamp it through a series of amendments.

Probe Beating Of St. Louisan By Aita.lat.d Pr.ii ST. LOUIS. — A Circuit Court grand jury may hear today from John Randazzo, whose beating has set off an ever-growing number of Inquiries into the activities of St. Louis police and underworld characters. Assistant Circuit Attorney John J. Kelly Jr., said Randazzo's appearance would depend on his physical condition. The 391year- old tnfbk firm operator has been hospitalized with a. fractured jaw and chin since the beating Nov. 12. Randazzo has named police Detective-Sergeant John A. Doheity as his assailant. Doherty has denied the charge and stated certain persons are trying to "frame" him. Kelly asked Attorney General J. E. Taylor whether the life of the grand jury could be extended past its expiration date, set for Friday. There also was a move by city and state liquor control authorities for an inquiry to determine whether there were any irregularities in the issuance of the licenses held by the restaurant-bar in front of which the beating occurred. ist among some GOP lawmakers for completely rewriting basic labor-management legislation — and in so-doing, bury for good the controversial association of Taft- Hartley with the Republican party. Speculation has also been reported among some labor union officials on the prospect of an entirely new law emerging frorn the House Labor Committee under McConnell.

"While our ultimate goal should be world dis armament, we must keep strong as long as times remain as $hey now are." Short, who describes himself as neither an isolationist nor a militarist, said he believes there can be substantial savings made in next yearls and subesquent military budgets.
