TRIBUNE^ La Crosse, Wisconsin Doubled WSFL Assessment In Sweetheart Of Britons, Is 21. -; SUPERIOR, Wis.—#P>—A resolution asking that the current monthly assesment for political action be doubled was introduced Tuesday at the 59th annual convention ' of the Wisconsin State Federation of Labor. ., •JiChe measure, brought in by a Kenosha federal union, asked that the levy against each member be raised from one cent to two cents monthly. The action would provide an annual political action fund of about $40,800. . The'iWSFL has levied the one- cent per capita collection annually since adoption of its ''political education" program in 1946. "Gov. Kohler, in a noon address, praised the WSFL for its combination of • "warm hearts and'cool heads" and "for your constant fight against those who would lead either to the extreme right ,«>r to the extreme left." "Vou recognize the fact that there is no essential difference between communism and fascism," the governor said. "Under either system the working men and women are stripped of basic freedoms and I congratulate you on. ypur insistence that, neither communism nor fascism have any place in the. labor movement." Gov. Kohler cited 1951-legislation of interest-to working peo-: pie and lauded the AFL for working for legislation benefitting all state residents. Two Youths Arrested In Holdup Scheme EAU CLAIRE, Wis.— (&)— The arrest of two youths Monday— apparently in the act of stealing a prospective getaway car— squelched an alleged conspiracy to rob the Turtle Lake bank. One of the -youths, Roger Carten, 23, was shot and critically hurt. Police Chief Bernard L. Garmire said that Phillip Kleist, 18, and Carton were taken into custody at the U. S. Rubber company's parking lot early Monday as they abandoned one stolen car and attempted to steal another. *., Carton was shot in the loin by Officer Clifford Omtvedt when he pulled a revolver on the policeman, who had been called by the watchman. Garmire identified three other youths taken into custody Monday as Charles T. Catlin, 17; Douglas Caton, 19,- and Robert Steedley, 21. All but Catlin were armed, Carmire said. The chief said police had received an anonymous tip last Thursday that the five planned to hold up tlje Turtle Lake bank ;hat day, and officers immediately were assigned to trail them. The prospective holdup was delayed, Garmire said after quizzing them, until Monday. He added that complete plans and elaborate diagrams of the bank were in their possession when they were arrested. • Carton and Kleist have been charged with auto theft, Garmire said, and the other three are being held on an open charge pending consultation with federal authorities. Labor Leaders Viewed Backing Demos In '52 By JACK BELL WASHINGTON —(/P)— New blasts at Sen. Taft (R<» and the Taft-Hartley act indicate some top labor leaders may be getting ready to throw their strength behind a Democratic presidential candidate again in 1952. . • Pres. William Green of the American Federation of Labor surprised some Republicans by linking an attack on the Taft- Hartley act with an assertion-in an Atlanta speech Monday that Taft himself is-"an organizer of communism in America." Dan Tobin, president of the AFL teamsters, predicted in a union publication that Taft and Pres. Truman will be the nominees of their respective parties. He said Taft is "an honorable man" but .holds "antagonism to labor." . Taxes (Continued from Page I) bets.placed with bookmakers and lottery wagers made with numbers operators. : The house-passed $7,200,000,000 tax bill, now before the senate committee, also carries a $50 a year occupational tax on persons who handle horse-racing and numbers bets. The wagering tax would be levied on the amount bet by the individual not what he stands tc win. It would be colleciec through the person who accepts the bet. ; • George said the first subject to be voted on probably would be personal income levy income levy increases.- Many senators on the committee are dissatisfied with the plan used by the house to increase individual income taxes. This plan involves a 12% per cent hike in the amount of tax paid by each person now.

Her 21st birthday was greeted y Britons everywhere but the elebration at nearby Balmoral astle was a quiet family affair. Tourists and local fook in this eighboring Scottish town made ; a festive occasion as friends of le royal family—including some vho may be eligible for Mararet's hand—came to take part the birthday party. There will \je no booming of guns throughout the empire, ince Margaret is only fourth in me to the British throne. But lo- al postal officials are bracing hemselves for the expected flood of congratulatory letters, elegrams and presents. Getting Convertible Court circles have not dis- losed what most of the presents are. It is known that she is get- ing a convertible coupe, and the raditional pearl to add to the matched string started when she was born. Grey old Balmoral castle will e the scene of a royal birthday lall over which King George, iSr father, will preside. But out- ide the walls of the famed old •oyal hunting lodge, there will be toasting and flinging of high- and kilts. Scotsmen feel they have a spe- Mal claim on Margaret Rose— lie princess' full name—because he was born in this northland's gloomy Glamis castle. The royal birthday sparks new peculation as to when the •ounger daughter of King George Tl will announce her betrothal. Jegend has it that girls born a1 Jlamis castle marry, or at leas' >ecome engaged, by the time hey are 20.

She gets the right to vote— a privilege she probably never will use, since the royal family raditionally does not take sides in politics. Instead of an allowance out of her father's pocket, ifargaret gets her own income of 6,000 pounds ($16,800) a year. And she becomes qualified to be a member of a council of state which would take'over sovereign duties if her father became in- acitated or left the country. he also now will have her own say as to whether she can wear strapless gowns in public or not. The last time she wore one—a highly irregular thing for a young princess to do—she was cheered by many, but greeted by he raised eyebrows of those" who are sticklers to convention. Housing Bill Passes; Lower Payments Asked WASHINGTON — (ff) — The house Tuesday passed and sent to Pres. Truman a $1,635,000,000 defense housing bill promising ower down payments on low and moderately priced dwellings. The general purpose of the bill is to encourage private builders to erect housing for the thousands who have swarmed 'nto defense 'centers and _ areas around military installations. The which bill carries a would require provision that the present tough credit restriction on low and medium priced houses be relaxed. The bill would authorize a $1,500,000,000 expansion of the government's authority to insure home mortgages. This and other features are designed to encourage private industry to build what housing is necessary. None Hurt In Quake HONOLULU — (ff) — A sharp earthquake early Tuesday destroyed eight homes • and damaged at least 30 more on the famed Kona coast of the island of Hawaii,, police reports said. ^ Police Sgt. Emery Kunitomo said none was seriously injured. A few (Blight injuries were reported. All the damaged homes destroyed or were of frame construction. The Hilo Tribune Herald estimated damage would run about $50,000. The heaving earth forced open cracks in highways, but none was wide enough to halt traffic. The quake struck at 1:10 a. m. First reports indicated that it spent most of its force in .the ocean depths off the west coast of Hawaii, the big island south of'the main island of Oahu. ,The shock caused only a mile tremor in Honolulu. which His excellency, toe Most lev. Leo F. Binz, coadjutor archibishop of Dubuque, will be celebrant. . $2 Million In Drive Plans for the seminary were announce/l in May, 1947. A four- year fund-raising campaign was aunched in November of thi same year, with $2 million raise( n that drive. The architect is Edward J. Schulte of Cinchona ti, while the Standard Construe tion Co. of Minneapolis received he general contract for the luilding, which was let on a bid jasis. The well-built structure today wouH cost an additional $1 mil ion were it not for the fact thai contracts were let in August 1949, officials said. Ground was broken for the new building on Oct. 17, 1948, by His excellency the Most Rev. Amleto Giovanni Cicognoni, apostolic delegate to the United States. The ground breaking took place at the tune the Nationa batholic Rural Life Conference was held in La Crosse. Actua construction on the seminary dii not begin until August, 1949, al though preliminary leveling o the site had been done earlier Wisconsin's second seminary has incorporated many new fea tures employed in institutiona construction. It is built with an aim at beauty, economy, simplicity and practicality. The theory behind the general plan is new and largely the result of long ex perience in planning institution al building on the part of the na tionally known architect. The five units fit together in functional pattern, each of th units having direct use. The us Of each unit dictated its size plan and structural dispositioi avoiding the common wasteful ness of attempting to force three or four types of occupancy int( a single symmetrical building o 'L." "U," "H" or "E" shape. The five units—chapel, refec tory, dormitory, classrooms gymnasium—have distinct use but are united into an harmon ous single unit. The church urn dominates the entire ensemble both as to the exterior, which proclaims to the world its fune tion as a Catholic seminary, an , «*. as to the interior, which place the church unit where the occi pants are conscious of its exis 1 tence and their one reason, fo being there.

Nautla is a small' town of less than 2,000 population. Hurricane winds are expected to be felt as far north as Tampico, a modern city of almost 100,000 population. Squalls and heavy seas may extend to the lower Texas coast, the'weather bureau 1 said in cautioning small craft to take cover until the fury of the storm has passed. The weather bureau • has advised ships in the southwest gulf of Mexico to remain in port until all dangers have passed. The storm developed hurricane force six days ago on moving into the Caribbean from the Atlantic and since has traveled almost 2.300 miles along a west- northwesterly path. The hurricane—dubbed "Charlei" by the' weather bureau— struck the Yucatan peninsula ilonday with 100-mile-an-hour 'orce. But no deaths were reported on the peninsula.

That left 1,172 who haven't had a meal since Thursday breakfast. The strike entered its second week Tuesday. The food was shut off by warden George Alexander on the second day of the strike in an effort to force the men back to work. The men said they would strike until guard Lt. Morris Race was shifted outside the walls. They said he started the whole thing by brutality in halting a fight between convlQts. The warden denied it, said Race would stay, and issued a work- or-don't-eat ultimatum. Truce [Continued from P««» 1) only 24 hours after he reported the UN authorities in Korea felt the ambush of the Chinese patrol was the mark of North Koreans trying to sabotage armistice talks and make the Chinese fight the war for them. Coincidental with - Nuckols' comments, members of the UN motor convoy to Kaesong Tuesday noted for the first time sev- erak score men of military age wearing the white garments of farmers. Heretofore peasants seen working in the fields along the way were mostly old men and women. Since truce.talks started July 10, Chinese delegates have appeared somewhat anxious to end the shooting and less interested than the North Koreans in where a buffer zone is created. Location of the buffer zone is the current stumbling block. The subcommittee, consisting of two UN, one Chinese and one North Korean delegates, is trying to find an acceptable solution. The Reds want it on the 38th parallel; the UN on present battle lines. McCarthy Gives Talk U. S.
