FAC* German Tough Guy Said Ousted Zaiscer Case It Shrouded With Mystery JP By DAN DE LUCE BERLIN (AP) — Mystery surrounded the ouster of Red Gestapo Boss Wilhelm Zaisser today. Rumors he is under secret arrest in East Berlin, victim of a "Beria purge" were offset by reports he would come back to head both army and poJke. The bull - faced German—the "Qeneral Gomez" of Spanish Civil War fame—»as suddenly replaced as chief of state security by Ernest Wollweber and his 100,000 police agenti were put under control of ttie Interior Ministry. It was the biggest Communist Bhafcevp In the East German republic's 4-year history. Rumora were that Zafsser who often bragged he possessed a direct pipeline to Lavrenty P. Beria —had now forfeited his liberty because of his generation-long friendship with the purged Soviet police boss. Investigation Unconfirmed reports said Wollweber, in talcing over Zaisser's office, had immediately begun a drastic investigation of all Zais- ser's staff, seeking scapegoats who failed to weed out "Fascist provocateurs" in Soviet zone industry before the June 17 revolt of workers. ZaMMr, who has served Russia at a military man for 18 years, was summarily relieved as security minister yesterday and the min- tetry itself was reduced to a secretariat »nd incorporated to tile Ministry of the Interior. . Bo* Zaisser and his chief aide Hi the Security Ministry, Commu- flist Erich Mielfce, have vanished at tetst temporarily from public »i«w to the continuing government a) crisis. Rwnon Dtocounted However, the rumors that Zais- 6er has been Jailed—spread mainly by anti-Communist organizations with headquarters in West Berlin- were discounted by several officers who bed deserted from the East German army last week. They said tnat Zaisser is more likely to make a comeback as minister of the interior controlling both the secret police apparatus nnd the 125,000 men in the People's Army. Will! Stoph. present interior minister and member of the Commu- nibt Central Committee has been under fire because many German troops were proven "politically unreliable" in fighting strikers in the June rebellion. As a member of both the Politburo and the Central Committee, Zaisser had outranked him in the party. REVOLUTION SKIMS THE WAVES—This Photograph may symbolize a revolution in aviation —the rebirth of the all-but-forgotten seaplane, whose clumsy, slow bulk has been eclipsed by sleek, speedy land planes. First photo released by the Navy, it shows Convair's superhush Sea Dart, the world's first jet-propelled seaplane, on trial flight in San Diego Bay, Calif. It has a swordfish-nosed, slim, streamlined shape. Uuing the lower part of the wing for buoyancy it is said to be practically unsinkable. K is really a plane that floats instead of a boat that flies, 'sheets of spray that shot out sideways when the old PBY-type seaplanes took off are eliminated by "fenders" running full length on each side. They deflect onrushing water under the hull, boosting it up For taking off and setting down in the heaviest seas, the Sea Dart has retractable "hydro-skis" like a beach sportsman's water skis. A delta-wing jet plane is the fastest design known to aviation and the success of the Sea Dart opens up vistas of water-based bombers and huge seaplane airliners "that wffl match the speed, climb, distance and load ot any land plane," according to Con- vair designer E rnest G. Stout. TRUCE Continued from Page 3 crs of war had been approved, leaving only minor details to wrap up. The U. N. Command scored minor victory Saturday when the Reds pulled down big Communist peace doves from above the three entrances to Armistice Hall—the straw mat-covered building erected by the Communists for the signing ceremonies. The Reds had put the doves—patterned after designs by left-wing French artist Pablo Picasso and symbols of the Communists' peace propaganda campaign—over the entrances when they completed the structure Friday. COTTON (Continued Irom Page 1) caused, he explained, when the hopper pokes its proboscis through the leaf while it is in the cell formation stage. But these are only symptoms, however, and the damage is to the squares. "If farmers hope to catch the hopper in the early stages, they must learn to look for the match- head-size squares that are dying or have dropped off," Mr. Bilbrfy said. He suggested that farmers spray once with toxaphane and then watch the terminals carefully seven to 15 days afterward for signs of a new hopper build-up. Warns About Spraj-lnjr He warned, however, against promiscuous spraying, which he sniti can bring on boll worm damage which can be more severe than that done by hoppers. The build-up of hopper infestation has occurred v/ithin the paet ID days, he said .adding that he Jears a big infestation in all fields east of Big Lake. However, he said, some fields have escaped so far. "Every field on the air base needs poisoning now. while on the National Cotton Pieklne Cnn«"=t. •"•> (east of Walker Park) there tat a single hopper."

OW-C a s e y Jones' beloved whippoorwlll whistle echoed one* again across MIS' slssippi while a monument was unveiled in this village where the fumed train engineer died in the blinding crash of the "Old 382." Casey's 83-year-old widow and 3im Webb, the Negro fireman to whom he yelled "jump, Sim, ump!" just before the crash 53 years ago, attended the unveiling .t« yesterday in this whlstlestop on the Illinois Central line. Mrs. Jones rode Into Vaughan on the IC's crack streamliner, train No. 1. The train that Casey rode to his death at almost the same spot also was the 1C No. 1, 'The high rightwheeler he rode to fame." Casey's spry little widow now ives in Jackson, Tenn., and reared two of Casey's sons to fol- :ow Sn their father's footsteps on Jie railroad. The years rolled back for Sim Webb as he gazed on a model of 'Old 382" with Casey in the cab, jis hand on the throttle. Casey's •/nistle was donated for the cele- >ration by a Missouri man. Sim can almost recite minute by minute the account of the 'CannonbalPs" last run in 1900. ?rom the time they left Memphis, rcnn., an hour and 35 minutes late, Lo the time they go to the S-curve at Vaughan where they were only minutes off schedule, Sim can retrace the historic run mile by rniie. At one point on that ill-fated curve Sim said he looked out the window and saw the caboose of ,he freight train ahead. "My Lord, MY, Casey, there's something on the main line!" Sim yelied. Casey must, have seen it at the me time because his hand was on the throttle- It was then that Casey screamed 'jump, Sim, jump!" Sim said when Casey was found .n the smoking wreckage, his hand v^s still on. the brake. Some 2,500 persons, the largest :rowd in the history of the village community 35 miles north of the Mississippi capital of Jackson, k"* tiiercd from the valleys that 'laiik the IC's tracks and jammed Vaughan's one street to pay tribute to Casev's memory. More menhaden are caught annually in the United States than any other fish. They are used principally for fertilizer and as a source of oil needed by the leather, steel and lincleum industries.
