That was nine days after Red artillery on the mainland opened up with a 6,000-shell barrage against Chiang Kai-shek forces on the island only seven miles away. The article says also that the Quemoy affair spurred the President to renewed efforts to find a way out of the impasse of Amcri can policy in the Par East. It adds that the situation lies behind the strong accent on the search for peace which has appeared in recent Elsenhower statements on foreign policy. Landing Feared The shelling of Quemoy led Washington to believe Ihe Comma nlsts were softening up the Nationalist outpost for a possible landing. The Post and Times-Herald article says one quick result wa.s Pentagon permLssion lor Chiang's air force lo bomb attacking artillery and search out and attack any troop and shipping concentrations In the Quemoy area. Also within a day or two of the opening of the barrage, It says, a malority of the Joint Chiefs voted a recommendation to the President that the Nationalists be allowed immediately to bomb Inland Red China, and Hint American planes be allowed lo make such strikes if an all-out attack on Quemoy developed. Named as voting for thai recommendation are AcUn. Arthur W. Radford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs; Adm. Robert B. Carney, chief of naval operations, and Qen. Nathan P. Twining, Air Force chief of staff. The minority member was reported to be Gen. Matthew B. Rldgway, Army chief of staff. SlWiK Dissent Undersecretary of Stale Waller Bedell Smith, acting State Dcnui'l- incnt chief while Dulles wa.s i Manila for the Southeast Asia Pact conference, Is described as having sided strongly with Rldgway in dissent. The recommendations were sent to Eisenhower and cabled lo Dul- Ics, who Is reported to have cabled back his approval. In Its account of a Nnllonal Security Council mccllni! In Washington Sept. fl, the paper said Vice- president Nixon, presiding In Eisenhower's a b s 'no l', al Blind against any American move. Action was postponed here because Elsenhower had accepted undersecretary Smith's recommendation that n special Security Council session he held before any decision. At the Denver meeting Radford is reported lo have argued tor nc- llon. Secretary of Defense Wilson Is said lo have liwored action only alter Communist "provocation." Rid^way's dissent was said lo Imve been based on the argument Hint air and naval action Inevitably would call for font soldiers and the Army was not ready.

We were headed toward, iand," he told a news conference. The attack came, he said, lust a.s his plane had finished the first of three scheduled photo runs over northern Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost Island. His plane, he said, was at about 17,000 feet and just off the Hokkldo coast, southwest of the easternmost tip of the Nem- uro fsthmus. This would put the plane well to the south and west on the Japanese side of the narrow strait of water that separates Hokkaido from the Soviet-held islands. Asked If the Russian planes at any time intruded Inside the three- mile limit marking Japanese waters, Fclth said: "Yes, I would say they were on their last pass." Peith said when the MIOs were first spotted rising from about 10,000 feet he told his crew, "I don't think they would attack." But moments later A. 2.C. Walter Lentz, New York City, shouted: "They're firing." The Mis made two passes each, blasting at the big RB29 with both cannon and machine guns. Pelth said his plane lurched, flames, touched off by gasoline spewing from a wing tank, enveloped part of the craft. A. 3.C. Earl E. Welmer, Elkins, W. Va., the tail gunner, said bullet holes suddenly appeared 18 inches above his head. "I was scared," he said. The MIGS. he said, "came straight in on the tail. When they started firing I was looking straight up the MIGs' Intake pipes and the cannons underneath the pipes." Moments later Petth ordered the crew to ball out. "Everyone cleared the ship," he said. Nothing to Gain Although the RB29 was armed, Feith said he could see no advantage in returning the Russian fire. His copilot, 1st Lt. David N. Oliver, Corvallis, Ore., said: "I don't like getting shot at. I was mad. But like the captain said, there was nothing to be gained by shooting at them." Oliver said Just before the bailout he broke radio silence to announce the big plane had been attacked. The crew members said the mass bailout occurred over a 10- mile strip as the burning plane floundered inland. It crashed aboul 35 miles from the attack area, scene of several clashes between U. S. and Soviet planes In past months. All hut one of the men were picked up. The llth, the seconc man out of the plane, was found drowned, tangled in his chute. His name was withheld. In Tokyo, Gen. Hull released this statement: "With utmost indignation I musl denounce the shooting down by two Soviet MIG fighter pla.ies of United States photographic plane yesterday. "Without provocation these plral leal planes pounced without warning upon an American aircrafl which was peacefully engaged in a routine mission. Any claim b.\ the Soviet attackers that our plane wa.s over what they consider their territory Is completely negated by Caruthersville PMA to Pay Off Aitociotion Will B< 100 Percent- Farmer-Owned CARUTHERSVILLE — Board of Directors o/ the Caruthersville 'reduction Credit Association voted to repay the remaining government capital at a. recent meeting icre. It will give the association 00 percent farmer ownership, it was announced today by the secre- ,ary-treasurer, Harold R, Robinson.

Leponto Police Seek Killer Of Newborn Baby LEPANTO, Ark. (/Pj — Police today are seeking the killer of a newborn baby whose skeleton was found in the attic of a Lepanto house yesterday. The box was found by Bobby, 13 and Houston, 10, sons of Mrs. Bill Helium, who moved Into the house a few weeks ago. Officers said the infant girl, strangled at birth, had been dead about 10 months. A cloth still was tight about the skeleton neck. Miss Esther Blndursky, owner of the house, said it had stood vacant nearly 10 months before the Hel- iums moveti In. MONDA*Y, NOVEMBER 8, 19M Dr. Sam's Friends to Testify As Trial Enters Fourth Week CLEVELAND Wi — The blue- white light of the television set shone across the living room where two women and a man sat watching a movie called "Strange Holiday." A second man dozed on a couch as the night crept into the early morning of a real holiday, last Fourth of. July. Later that same morning, one of the women was found clubbed to death in her bedroom upstairs. She was pregnant Marilyn Sheppard. The man who was asleep on the couch was her husband, osteopath Samuel H. Sheppard, later accused of killing her. The other couple was Donald J. Ahern, 41, and his wife Nancy, neighbors who are due to testify today as Sheppard's trial on a first- degree murder charge goes into its fourth week. They are the last persons definitely known to have seen Marilyn Sheppard alive. Both the state and the defense hope to turn the Aherns' testimony to their own advantage. Sheppard has insisted his wife was killed by a bushy-haired intruder who knocked him unconscious after he awoke from his nap and ran upstairs to aid her. Tht prosecution, which contends he killed her after a quarrel over his love affairs with oth«r women, will try to establish that the Aherns locked the front door of of the Sheppard home before they left. That would have prevented any intruder from using the main entrance. The defense, on the other hand, believes that cross-examinatipn ol the Aherns will show that the Sheppards cuddled in the same chair on that night they entertained the neighbors. That would bolster the defense claim that the last four months were the happiest in th« married life ol the Sheppards. Extra Rabbit HOMEWOOD, HI. WI — George Stevenson's pet Belgian white hare is named Pete. He lives in a hutch, is hand-fed every day and has lots of neighborhood friends. As a rabbit, he's not very mysterious.

Yesterday's Incident came just two months after the Russians shot down a U. S. Navy Neptune some 350 miles to the ejist in what the United States called a "wanton nnd unprovoked attack." In July 1953, a U. S. B50 disappeared over the Sea of Japan and and the United States charged the Russians with shooting it down. Another big plane, n B29 Super- fort, disappeared Oct. 7, 1952, in the same general area as yesterday's Incident. fishermen Inter said they saw Russian planes shoot It down.
