2— .VAI!<iATIK'lt NKWH «:()S,V.), MONIIAY, OCT mill DREW PEARSON ON "|"he WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: General Patton Might Have Foiled Russian A-Bomb; Patton Was Ordered Away From Vital Czech Uranium Mines; Attorney General McGrath Makes Good ' Start. Washington.—The famed General George S. Patton probably turned over in his grave when President Truman announced that Russia had the secret of the atom. For Patton was ^ne man who came nec.r preventing, or at least retarding, Russian development of the atom. In the first week of May 19-15. Pattou's 3rd army crossed the Czechoslovak border and entered the city of Pilsen, headquarters of the vast Skoda munitions works. Patton had romped into Czechoslovakia before the Red army had time to move its ponderous forces, just as U. S. troops advanced to the suburbs of Berlin, only to be ordered out by General Eisenhower. When this columnist reported the peremptory withdrawal of U. S. troops from Potsdam at Russia's request, it was officially and categorically denied. However, General Patton's diary, now published, together with other memoirs sho%v that these withdrawals were based on the Roosevelt-Stalin agreement at Yalta defining the limits of Russia's advance into Europe. Therefore, when Gen. Eisenhower ordered Gen. Patton out of Czechoslovakia, Russia immediately moved in and took over the uranium deposits at Yachymov, just a shout—as Patton used to shout— from Pilsen. And having marched into Czechoslovakia, the Red army refused to leave until Russia had been given extra-territorial rights over the uranium mines of Yachymov. This made Russian citizens immune to Czech law in this area, a condition which continues. Even today no visitors are allowed in Jachymov — not even officials of the Czech government. Kusia's Long-Range Plan Of course, the present Czech Communist government has no objection to this arrangement, but tl>e earlier Czech government of Edouard Benes did. In fact, the late foreign minister, Jan Masaryk— later murdered by the Russians— rose on the floor of the United Nations in January 1946 to place Czechoslovakia officially on record as favoring the use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes only, and proposed that Czechoslovakia's uranium should be made available to all nations. As a result, official Moscow stood on its ear. The Soviet ambassador in Prague protested to Czech Prime Minister Fierlinger, and the threat was implied that unless Czech uranium mines remained under Soviet jurisdiction, the Red army would march in again. Since the mines are only three miles away from the Soviet zone of Germany, this \vtu\ no idle threat. Meanwhile, the extraction of uranium, by German prison labor, continues. Whether Russia has any other sources of uranium is not known, but it is known that this is the richest source in Europe, and without it the recent atomic explosion might have been impossible. Note—It should be recalled that the Yalta agreement was concluded at a time when our wartime partnership with Russia was working reasonably well and when Rooseve'.t'st great ambition was to continue this harmony to insure world peace. O.n the other hand, it should also be recalled that Alger Hiss, since accused of leaking State Department documents to the Russians, was an adviser at Yalta. ' Tobacco vs. Schools As a good Mormon, Sen. Arthur Watkins, Utah Republican, isn't supposed to drink tea or coffee. But he was caught at luncheon the other day with a teapot in front of his plate. The incriminating pot was spied by Sen. Ralph Flanders, Vermont Republican. "Aha!" exclaimed Flanders. And he lifted the lid off the teapot triumphantly. But the pot contained only plain hot water. "You won't catch me drinking tea," smiled Watkins. Then he explained that he was drinking "Mormon tea" — hoi water, milk and sugar with no stimulants. Note —It is also against Watkins' religion to use tobacco or liquor. To show the moral of this, he ordered the Library of Congress to furnish him with statistics on the smoking and drinking habits of non-Mormons which disclosed that Americans have been spending $67.22 per capita on liquor and .$26.39 per person on tobacco— but only $21.79 per capita on schools. New Attorney-General In any administration, whether Democratic or Republican, the key cabinet post from a political viewpoint is that of the attorney general. For it's in the Department of Justice that the anti-trust cases against big business can be prosecuted—or fixed; where income-tax cases against political friends can be pushed—or dropped; where the big gamblers who contribute heavily to most political cam,.'A ! gns can be Sf;nt to jail or winked at.

Boston Post photographer Morris Fineberg was killed in the blast and two Navy personnel and a woman spectator were injured. Raymond C. Wooster, of Pond Hill; Kenneth C. Churchill, of 27 Andrew avenue; and John Abel, of 87 South Main street, the local delegates, all agreed that the accident was not due to negligence on the part of the Marine forces. Mr. Churchill and Mr. Abel, both veterans of considerable action in the South Pacific during World War T.I, contend that the necessa.ry precautions had been taken. "Everything was well rehearsed and was being carried out as scheduled," they contended.

Tompiling List Of Boats Suitable For Security Work The Coast Guard announced today that it was compiling- a list of privately owned boats, commercial and pleasure, which would be most suitable for port security work in the event of a national emergency. Inspection and listing of craft throughout the Third Coast Guard District will be started at once by the Coast Guard Auxiliary, according to Commander Ernest A. Cascini, USCG, district director of the auxiliary. Commander Cascini said a large number of boats would be inspected in order to get up a list of about 300 private craft in ,thi disteictt whifch most nearly meet the requirements for immediate conversion to security use if and when an emergency is declared. "This 5s a necessary step in our national defense program, which was. decided upon in the light of Coast Guard and Navy experience in acquiring small boats before World War II," said Comdr Cascini. "There is no good reason for anyone to read a war scare into this decision, which was made several weeks ago." Most of the boats to be listed will be of 38 to 83 foot lengths, although some smaller boats will be approved for special conditions, as along t'-ie Jersey coast where some inlets can be navigated only by shallow draft boats. Trawlers, party fishing boats and work boats will be favored, although some pleasure craft will also be listed. The list, when compiled, will go to Chief of the Operations Division, Third Coast Guard District, of which Adm. Ed. H. Smith is the commander.

Gene Autry Will Ride "New Haven" Show Train Oct. 11 Gene Autry, cowboy singing star, definitely will ride the New Haven Railroad's "show train" to New York on Tuesday evening, Oct. 11, to greet passengers personally on the way to the big rodeo at Madison Square Garden. The train trip on this occasion will have a definite wild-west flavor and promises to be as much fun as the rodeo itself. Cowboys and Indians in costume will wander through the aisles and western music will emanate from the train's communication system. Many of the passengers will be garbed in colorful riding attire and prizes will be awarded for the most attractive costumes. The rodeo "show train" will have three sections, one from Hartford, one from New Haven, and the third from Waterbury, and good tickets in all price ranges for the rodeo itself are now on sale at New Haven Railroad stations, in conjunction with purchase of train tlcli- etes. Each of the three sections, which will be joined into a single train between Bridgeport and New York, will have a refreshment car both going and returning. As the train is being run the night before the Columbus Day holiday, many parents are taking their children to the big show, knowing they can sleep late the next morning. The train will leave Naugatuck at 4:24 p. m., and on the return trip is due back at 2:10 a. COMPENSATION Julia M.

Ronald Ruzzy Plays In Waterbury Event Ronald Ruzzy ,8, of 228 May street, promining young accordionist, will appear in the Carnival of Music this evening at Mara'sHall, Waterburg. A large number of Naugatuck residents are planning to Dividend Money May Be Used For Premium Payments GI special insurance dividend money, for which World War II veterans now are filing- applications, may be used to pay National Service Life Insurance premiums in advance if veterans remit it to the Veterans Administration for that purpose, but the money cannot be transferred to the credit of veterans' accounts automatically. This was stated today by Harry T. Wood, manager of the Hartford VA Regional Office, in response to numerous questions. "Many veterans assume," said Manager Wood, "that the VA can transfer the special dividend payments to the credit of premium accounts as advance payment. Regulations do not perm-it this procedure. The VA is required to send direct to the veteran, following receipt of his application, whatever slum is due him as a special insurance dividend. It is expected that mailing- of checks will begin early in January. Then, of course, the veteran is entitled to rfpend the money as he pleases, and if he wishes to use some or all of it in paying- his GI insurance prsrnuims in advance that is his privilege. Incidentally, pre- •miiums paid in advance are discounted at the rate of 3 per cent annually."
