FACT SIX BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS U.S. Vulnerable, Royall Declares , Army Secretary Cites Alaska, Azores « Defensively Weak . . WASHTMTOH, April 30. (UP) — Army Secretary Kenneth Royall udd y«terday "»n enemy nation" under pr«ent conditions could "»ete b»»M la Al**k* or the AJO- n*" for «n air attack on the United *Ut«s. "Wt mint not atand idly by and lei them do it," he told the Senate Appropriations Committee. "They do not n*ed a fleet to take base* in Greenland, Iceland or the Azo- rtt." Royall did not name the potential "enemy nation." "We should . . . push the air *-ar against the U.S. as far away as we can as soon as we can," he said. Royall said this country cannot rely on "aircraft alone," for de- fence against a sudden air attack, but "must deny the enemy bases from which to at lack." "The only way to do that is to hold bases in Newfoundland, Alaska, Greenland, Iceland and the Aftorec," he sa:c. "And the only way to hold those bases is with ground forces," He said at present "there Is no serious doubt about the ability of an enemy nation to seize bases in Alaika and the Azores." Considering It- Group Plan the committee was holding final hearings on House-approved legislation to jive the Air Force *3,1S8,- 000,000 for immediate expansion to 70 groups. The figure includes $822,000,000 more than asked by Defense Secretary James Forrestal in his re<{uests for the defense establishment. That would include only C6 groups. Royall and Gen. Omar N. Bradley, Army chief of staff, both endorsed plans to beef up the Air Porce to te groups by taking B-28'.i "out of mothballs." The House already has approved i boost to 70 air groups. "If we dont equip these. <66> froupa with B-59's." Bradley said, u w« will have to wait a year or two for new planet anyway." Royall said national defem.e would be weakened, not strengthened, by a military budget which causes serlout Inflation. He said the Army would like 10 have $2,068,000,000 more than its budget in order to be prepared for "the initial phase" of a war. But the Army it not asking that mr/.i, he said. It Is supporting Forrestal's recommendations la "their entire- tj."

(UP) — Southerners might have less heart trouble If they would drink more mint Juleps, a Texas doctor said here yesterday. Dr. George B., proles- sor of medicine at the University of Texas, spoke before a meeting }f the Medical Association of Georgia here. He said that a re-Instatement oi two good • old Southern customs—a leisurely t«mpo of life and frequent sipping of mint juleps—might put a halt to the steady increase of heart diseases in the South. The most common and most serious type of heart ailment, coronary artery type diseases, has increased right, along with the mental strain of modern life, Dr. Herrman snid. "We have become too hurried," he told the doctors, "and our hearts are overtaxed." Slow down, he advised. That's where those long, cool drinks come in. Mint Juleps are beneficial, Dr, Herrman snfH, "because they dilate the arteries of the heart." That is another way of saying Sewro/ Hum/red Bottles Of Contaminated Glucose Stiff Sought in Nation WASHINGTON, • April 30. (UP) — Government agents now are Investigating all the glucose produced by a California drug firm, the Food and Drug Administration said yesterday. A laboratory test has revealed .contamination of a consignment rhipped last month. The.yood and Drug Administration said teveral hundred gallon- •iie bottles of the contaminated solution still are missing An intensive' search for them - hns been in progress for 10 days. The missing bottles are part of :i 2,952-bottle consignment distributed by the Cutter Laboratories. Berkeley, Cal. They carry a code number CM81M and are labelled "Five per cent glucose in norr.ial saline. 1 ' Glucose freqently is injected into the veins ot a sick person unable to take nourishment otherwise. O!- ficials of the rood and Drug Administration warned that use of the contaminated solution might cause serious, irSjry or death. that they help the overwrought man to iclnx nnd forget all the hustle JUKI bustle. A tot of heart disease is caused also by wlu.t the medical professor called "bad dietary habits." Americans simply cat too much, he snid especially to many fats and rich foods. There is more heart trouble in the Unltcc' States than in any other country, accoi-dine to Dr.. Herrman. and it could he because Americans lend such abundant, lives where Icod is concerned, In countries where there is much starvation, he pointed out, there u very little heart disease. Heredity has a lot to do with whether a person is apt to have heart trouble, the doctor "Those with a family hislorv of the disease should avoid all things that might contribute to it." The Texas doctor said that the medical profession is conducting a constant search for new methods of treating heart aliments. But the emphasis, he said, is being placed on prevention of heart disease by trying to eliminate Its causes. Plot to Scare Teacher Into Passing Student Fails NEW YORK, April 30.

(UP)—A draft-Eisenhower move* nenl by tlie Democratic party was urged yesterday by a member ol the CIO political Action Committee's executive board. 'It is. my firm conviction that unless President Truman withdraws from the nomination, the Democrats or literals in this country will have little chance to win," WJHiam Pollock said. Pollock, secretary-treasurer of the CIO Textile Workers Union told the Union's fifth annual convention that "I would go even further than our president, Emll Rieve, went and say that even though we do not know the record of -Eisenhower we ought to draft him to run for president on the Democratic ticket. "it Is my firm conviction that with a man of his stature heading tlie ticket we can elect a liberal Congress and a liberal Senate, something that is badly needed In this country," Pollock said. The convention also heard cha.'ge by Jack Kroll, director of the PAC, that Congress is doing nothing to check an Inflationary boom which may lead to another depression.
