WEDNESDAY, .TUNE S, 1953 BLYTHEVTLLB (ARTC.V COURIER FACE SEVEN Doomed A-Spies Again Refuse To Tell Secrets / Rosenbergs' Attorney To Visit Couple in Sing Sing Today OSSINING, N. Y. (.-?!—The attorney for atom spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, doomed to the electric chair just 15 days from now, plans to visit them today in the Sins? Sing Prison.death house. • The lawyer, EmanucI Bloch, expects to get details from them nbout their latest refusal to seek mercy by co-operating with ;the government. Bloch said yesterday in New York that an emissary of U. S. Atty. Gen. Herbert Brownell offered the pair another chance to confess atomic espionage-for Russia. "We both reasserted our innocence and said since we are not guilty we cannot tell them anything about espionage," the Rosen- bergs told Bloch in a telegram from the prison here. It was learned later that Federal Director of Prisons James V. Bennett had talked With the Rosen- bergs. He reportedly came to Sing Sing:, not to urge the Rosenbergs in talk, but to make it plain that the government would lend a willing ear if and when they decided to do so. Earlier yesterday the Rosenbergs lost another last-ditch legal bid for clemency when the U. S. Court of Appeals refused to lighten their death sentence or stay their execution. The Justice Department has made it plain that the Rosenberg's best bet for clemency is to confess to atomic spying and to name v (.he others in the ring.

The bomber also carried films for CBC. Both NBC and CBS had crews and commentators waiting at Boston's Logan Airport for their films being relayed from Goose Bay in converted P51 Mustang planes piloted by Joe de Bona for CBS and Stanley Reaver for NBC. Late word came that De Bona was far in the lead, but also that an BCAP jet already had reached Montreal with the CBC films. A few minutes before De Bona landed, NBC suddenly switched to the CBC telecast from Montreal. The ABC network also began picking up the same Canadian telecast. Everest Climbers Start Trip Down KATMANDU, Nepal Wj — The intrepid British-led mountain climbers svho scaled the world's tallest mountain for the first time last week were reported today on their way dawn the perilous slopes of towering Mt. Everest. It probably will be several weeks before they reach civilization to tell the full story of their triumph. As the world cheered the news that two of the 15-man team had planted Britian's Union Jack and presumably Nepal's flag, also on the icy summit as a coronation gift to Queen Elizabeth II, the climbers huddled below the peak and celebrated the monarch's crowning yesterday with a toast to her. The nature of the beverage was not kno\vn here. Word that the team led by Col. John Hunt had succeeded in the suppreme test ot mountaineering was brought by native runners, seeding in relays from Everest's desolate heights. casts by the British Broadcasting Corporation and were not of as Rood quality as some of the film shown in evening summaries by both NBC and CBS. Both networks flew additional film across the Atlantic, including considerable regular motion picture film, in chartered commercial airliners arriving later in the day, for the evening telecasts. Two more RAF Canberras also flew across with more film recordings of [he BBC coverage for both the Canadian and U. S. networks. ABC passed up its own film review to pick up that of the CBC. The Du Mont network decided to drop out of the hot competition entirely. CRAMER'S Continued from Page 3 broke. I had the radio tuned in, and an announcement came over it that oil had been struck »t Kileore. Tex. Hale Jackson was deputy sheriff at that time nnd had to go to Iwcar- kana on business so I caught a ride with him, with exactly 50 cents in my pocket. "When I got to Kilgore, The Humble Oil Company had leased a restaurant and was feeding 900 of their employees. The man in charge was 'Pullman Joe,' an old timer among cooks. "It was lucky for me that I knew him. I asked him for the Job as head cook and his answer wae 'Since none of these cooks are my kin folks, you can have the Job,' so I be^an as soon a<s I got a good free meal. After I got estabushed I sent for Mrs. Cramer and as soon as the word got to Osceola that I was in charge of the Humble Oil Company Kitchen, every time I looked up, there was somebody from Osceola wanting a job and they sure got it," Jesse said. "We later bought a. cafe in Kilgore and-business was flourishing until the rainy season started. The only place we could find to live was a one room shanty that leaked like a sieve. Everybody was leaving there as work can't go on in oil fields during the rainy season, so we went broke again. We came back to Osceola as broke as a man can be. * * * "I DIDN'T have a penny to buy a bite to eat and was too proud to tell anybody at the end of the day I was really so weak from hunger I could hardly walk but I managed to muster up the nerve p.nd asked, Mrs. Sutton for a meal, Raymond i found out I was back and again he put me in business. He moved me | into my present location, paio my rent In advance, painted the build? ing and cave me n big opening. A band played all day out hi front and free coifee and doughnuts were passed out during the day. Young girls about the town that Raymond had contacted came over to wait on the overflow crowd and not one penny would .they take. That day in 1936 was the happiest day of my life. "AU my wife and I could do when we caught each other's eye was to cry to think we had so many friends who believed so wholeheartedly in us. All the failures we had gone through were over. "The government fleet came to Osceola and no oil boom ever helped make business as did the fleet. Not only us, but every merchant in town reaped the harvest from It. Thnt was the year Cramer's Corner originated. "Osceola had one of the. best ball clubs in the country and every man, woman and child in town supported it 100 per cent. "The winter we had an overflow. I was put In cnarge of the relugee camp kitchen, by the Red Cross. There was nobody else here in town to do it so I hired a cook for S35 a week to work In my cafe and I took the Red Cross job for $15 a week. We fed refugees so good and gave some of them better sleeping facilities than they had left behind. Every afternoon I had my cook make fresh dougnnuts and send them to the camp for the children. "There were 500 in the Camp with not enough dfches furnished to feed more than hall so I bought them from my surplus supply at the cafe. Once a week we gave a free moving picture party. The $15 a week I made I bought chewing gum and candy for the children nnd if any birthday's occurred I baked them a big birthday cake." 1 interrupted Jesse and asked 11 that was the year the state militia hurt to be called here to make the reiufiees go back to their homes. He smiled and nodded his head. * « • JESSE WAS also in charge of the cook camp when Highway 40 was under construction. "One of the oldest bridge dubs in Osceola. "The four-table super club," meets at Cramers once a month, as they have done since the club wns organized. During the days ot rationing. Mr, Cramer continued feeding the 16 members at the price they paid him when the club sturtcd and when beef went sky high during the past few years, nobody missed it because Jess Cramer IF a born cook nnd the head chef at the Waldorf Astoria couldn't have done a better job of pleasing 1C women.
