The farm groups were called alter Joseph O. Grew, retired American diplomat, told the committee that universal training would put Russia on notice that she cannot continue picking off neighbor slates "one by one." Herbert W. Voorhecs, representing the American Farm Bureau Federation, favored strengthening tlio . United Nations to prevent "misuse" of the veto and to create an international police force. J. T. Sanders, legislative representative for the National Grange, doubted that there is an imminent war crisis Justifying either universal training or selective service. If there is, It should be met by sclcc- tfe service and not by universal training, he said.

Veterans from Harvard, MIT and Boston University participated to dramatize the fact that "Dashing Doug is not the veterans' darling." Father of Five Gets New Chance To Prove His Worth to Society Ami lie charged thai some legislators were attempting to "destroy the constitution" by enacting President Truman's civil rights program. Tuck told n Scnnle Rules Subcommittee that the states should retain the right to enact the poll tux as a voting qualification In federal elections. "Federal legislation only serves to break down states' rights—one of the great bulwarks against Communism now running rampant In Europe," Tuck said. He asked a hamls-off policy by the Moral government on the noil tax Ls.suc_ lie urged that Congress refrain from any action "destroying the constitution as some of you men up here appear to want to do." The committee Is hearing testimony from Southern political leaders who oppose abolishing the poll tax by federal action. Sen. Hurnct R. Maybank, D,, S. C., said that only 30 per cent of the persons in his state were affected by the poll tax, and that even those unable to pay a $1 yearly tax could vote If they swore to their inability to make the payment. He said tha.t debate in congress on the Issue often IMS stalled stale .icllon In dealing with abolishment oi the poll tax. NEW YORK, March 24. (UP) — Quiet and solemn-faced, five neatly dressed children sal on a bench outside Kings County courtroom yesterday. Inside, Richard K. Lukc- ' man, 30, father of the three little jays and two girls, Just had been enienced to a year in Jail for a uinmrr camp swindle. '1'ears in his eyes, Lukcman askeci ludge Samuel S. Leibowltz if he :ould see the youngsters. "I have not seen my children since before Christmas," Lukcman ,aid. , who had denounced before passing sentence, ordered him taken to an anteroom and asked that the children be irought to the room. The Judge watched as Richard Lukeman, Jr. 8, Marian, 7, Robert, 6, Catherine, 5, and Raymond, 'J, went down the aisle in single file and entered the anteroom. Then lie occame impassive again. Five minutes passed and I,el- bowitz, who had been staring into space, suddenly ordered Lukeman and the children brought into the courtroom. The youngsters sat in a row on the counsel table. "Lukcmnn," the judge snapped, "those children seated on that table are the best lawyers you've got. I may be criticized for what I am about to do, but I am going to cmpcr justice with mercy. T cannot blot out those little ones, f am gi>- Ing to suspend sentence and let yon go home with children." Spectators wept as Lukcman went :o his knees and with tears streaming down his face, swept the children into his arms. Earlier, Lclbowitz has suspended sentences on the children's mother, Marian, 27, and Don Nicholas Vol- gare, 35, who had been arrested witn Lukeman. The three were convicted last Dec. of taking $17,000 from parents who enrolled their children at summer : camp which never was opened. Children Will Assist In Building Airport CAREY, Ida., Mar. 24.
