The Army doctor said the POW's were asked to sign a peace petition. His testimony did not make clear who nsked the POW's to sign. Boysen said of the 37 officers in his group with Nugent, 'Ve ended up with less than 15." He described their diet ris consisting of bread, rice, onions, Chinese cabbage and soup "which I understand was made with dog meat." Boysen said all prisoners contracted diarrhea and some died of it. He added the officers and high ranking enlisted men were threatened with death unless they made propaganda broadcasts and signed peace petitions. "I was aware they would probably carry out their threats," Boysen saicL He testified that before his capture he saw six POW's dead after being bound and shot. "So far as I was concerned, the signing and broadcasts were forced," he added. Boysen said he was with Nugent as a fellow POW from July 25, 1950—20 days after Nugent's capture—until May 1951. The doctor, only physician among the captured prisoners in their compound, testified that in May 1951 he saw Nugent addressing the fellow prisoners in the "peace rally or whatever you want to call it." Nugent is charged with 13 counts of collaborating with the enemy and one of the counts accuses him of organizing "peace committees." The charges specify that while in the PW camp, Nugent made talks to fellow prisoners blaming the (Continued on Page Three) Benson Blamed for Surplus Problem WASHINGTON, Jan. 31— VP>— Rep. Cooley (D-NC) said today Secretary of Agriculture Benson will be called upon to explain why he has not put some "super salesmen" to work selling the billions of dollars worth of government- held farm surpluses. _ "It's going to be tragic if we sit by and let even a small part of these, surpluses deteriorate to the point where they must be destroyed, or even ground up for cow feed," Cooley said in an interview. He declared the House agriculture committee which he heads is concerned over the accumulation of butter, cheese and other perishable commodities, and that it feels "Benson is the one responsible." Benson, on the other hand, has attributed the accumulation of more than $6 billions worth of farm surpluses to high, rigid price supports which he and the White House persuaded Congress to scrap effective this year.

SOLON ACCUSES AMERICANS OF HELPING REDS Jenner Say* Cititens Spreading Propaganda After Returning from Asia WASHINGTON, Jan. 31 — (M— Senator Jenner (R-Ind) said today some means must be found to curb the activities of some American citizens whom he accused of spreading Communist propaganda after returning from Red China. "They must not be allowed to aid an enemy of the United States abroad and then return to the United States and enjoy freedoms and privileges for which other Americans fought, 1 ' he said. "At the very least, they should be required to register as foreign agents." Jenner made the statement in announcing publication by the Senate Internal Security subcommittee of another volume of testimony in a probe into the activities of American citizens he has ac- csued of aiding the cause of Red China, Jenner headed the subcommittee in the last Congress. . The latest volume includes testimony taken at a public hearing in San Francisco Dec. 12 from Mrs. Sylvia C. Powell, wife of John W. Powell, former editor of the China Monthly Review. Powell was a witness before the subcommittee at a hearing here last September. When asked about Communist; affiliations, he refused to answer under his constitutional protection against possible self-, incrimination. Jenner later announced he had asked Atty. Gen. Browne!! to press a treason charge against Powell. Another witness who similarly refused to answer questions before the subcommittee was William H. Hinton, of Putney, Vt. Like Powell, he was sent to China as a government employe and stayed on to work there after the Communists took over. Jenner said in his statement today that both Powell and Hinton acknowledged that "they had been (Continued on Page Three) Action To Remove Judge in Mayes County Delayed PRYOR, Okla., Jan. 31 — (.« _ DAILY 5 CENTS—SUNDAY 10 CENTS H™', STRANGER-Three-year-old Raleigh Dorrough III takes time out to get acquainted with a snow man, a stranger in Columbus, Ga.

Provide more protection against costs of prolonged illness. Insure low income families against the costs of medical care in the home or physician's office as well as hospitals. Eisenhower called it "a program which involves no government subsidy and no government competition with private insurance carriers." In another section of his message, lie called for grants to the states to help them combat juvenile delinquency and asked for stepped up programs against smog and water pollution. Further, he asked increased aid for nurses training, authority to make grants for mental health projects, and a system of government mortgage, insurance for private construction of clinics, hospitals, nursing homes and other icalth facilities. Eisenhower told the lawmakers: "Because the strength of our lation is in its people, their good health is a proper national con- 'ern; healthy Americans live more, rewarding, more productive and lappier lives.

The council ran into its first controversy when Soviet Delegate, Arkady A. Sobolov tossed in his demand to bar the Chinese Nationalists. The vote was 10-1, with only the Soviet Union voting to consider excluding Nationalist China. The move to throw out Die Soviet demand was made by Chief U. S.

They seek to prevent the judge from carrying out his suspension order and from setting aside another for final distribution of the estate signed by Longmire's predecessor, T. E. Landrum last April 7. Under the distribution order and terms of a 1953 legislative act, about $1,900,000 of the Graham estate would be placcjl in the hands of three trustees representing the city, county and state for public improvement expenditures in the county.

The council then began a procedural debate in the fonn of its i agenda. | The issue was complicated by a Soviet move to include on the agenda a charge of aggression against the United States and a demand that all U. S. forces ho withdrawn from the Formosa area. There was speculation here that Russia might spell out its demand for evacuation of all islands and "other territories belonging to China" to include Nationalist China's surrender not only of the Tachcns, and Quemo.v but of Formosa itself and the Pescadores Islands, which United States has pledged to protect. The United States called the Soviet demand a propaganda move designed to confuse- and divert se- iangshan, hut the U. S. Navy boss in the Pacific said Sunday such orders had not yet been given. The Tachens were fire-bombed by Red bombers Sunday. Tonight Communist puns hurled 22 shells toward the two offshore islands within 10 minutes.

Loel, who was staying at a motel with Mrs. Henderson during their share-lhe-expenses trip cast Jan. 10, 1954, said he wrested the knife from her hand after she drew it and threatened: "I'll kill you." Her violent death struggle followed in silence as they fought for the weapon. Loel said he didn't remember all the details.
