PAGK 2—NAUG.VTUCK NEWS (CONN.), SATURDAY, NOV. 19, 1M9 DREW PEARSON ON he WASHINGTON T MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Marines' General Worton Faces Toughest Job Of Life As Los Angeles' Police Chief; Conflicting Authorities Of County And Cities Making- Up Metropolitan Area Pose Administrative Problem; Civil Service Rules Hamper His Cleanup Efforts (Editor's Note: The brass ring, good for one free ride on the Washington Merry-Go-Round, today goes to Maj. Gen. William A. \Vorton,. the ex-Marine who is now cleaning up Los Angeles.) Los Angeles.—When Negro singer Paul Robeson came out to Los Angeles shortly after the Peekskill riots, it was generally expected that all hell would break loose. Robeson was reported to have picked this polygot. mushroomed metropolis of^ the west coast because of its crackpot Communist fringe and the hope that another riot would add more fuel to the distorted flames of the Moscow radio. But just the opposite happened. Robeson came and left Los Angeles without a ripple. No baseball bats were wielded. No rocks thrown. No ovation awaited him. And, most important of all, no propaganda fed the Moscow radio. The man responsible for this efficiency is a stocky, quiet-spoken officer who trained the 3rd Marines for the landing at Okinawa and who is now tackling the toughest job of his life. It is no exaggeration to say that Maj. Gen. I William Arthur Worton would rather lead troops into battle than face the political morasses and pitfalls that await the chief of police of Los Angeles. His job is probably typical of that faced by the modern, overgrown, big American city which is now trying to prevent the new wave of sex crimes, robberies and degeneracy that has engulfed every big city in the wake of war. Arrested by Reds Local Papers "Scooped" When General Worton took office late last summer, just about everything under the sun happened at. once. Mickey Cohen, much-pub- lirized sultan of the underworld, had just been shot at. Worton's predecessor as chief of police had just been indicted—though later acquitted. And a raft of dictaphone recording-s taking- from a microphone hidden in Mickey Cohen's house made headlines in the Los Angeles papers. Indicative of the easygoing lethargy of the Los Angeles police force was, first, the fact that these dictaphone recordings had been laying- in a police lieutenant's garage for months. And. second, the fact that the recordings were sold to various underworld leaders before they were shown to the new chief of police. In fact,, Los Angeles generally was so uninterested in its own po-. the lice graft that Dick Hyer of Junior Red Cross Reports Enrollment At 100 Per Cent The Junior Red Cross Roll Call conducted during- the past three weeks in all local schools, came to a close today with 100 per cent enrollment reported, Mr. Harold Chittenden, chairman, reported today. Each home room in every local school was asked to contribute 50 cents which served as a blanket coverage for all students of the room. All monies received over the required 50 cent^ from.' each room will be placed in a special reserve fund ear-marked for any project the Junior Red Cross undertakes throughout the year. The success of the Junior Red Cross Roll Call wa.* due mainly to the splendid assistance and co- otperation of the principals of the { schools, Mr. Chittenden said today. Those who assisted in this worthy campaign ^included' Miss Helen Maroney of Salem school, Miss Florence O'Loughlin of Prospect Street school, Miss Agnes Jackson of Hop Brook school, Miss Hazel Penrose of Oak Street school, Miss Elizabeth Meegan of Central Avenue school, Miss Mae Cullen of Rubber Avenue school, Rev. Albert Taylor of St. Francis' school. Rev. Stanley Haistillo of St. Hedwig's schiooj, Mrs). fMajrgarat Donahue of Beacon Falls, James Wanburton of Bethany and Ray- mony Foley or Naugatuck High school. ACCORDING to report! from Paris, Dolores Gomez Ibarruri "La Pa- •ionaria," famed woman Communist leader during Spain's civil war, has been arrested in Moscow as a "Titoist" Dispatches from Moscow, Seeking to discount the story, tell of her sitting at the council table during a recent meeting of the "Women's International Democratic Federation." / International) ficult not only because Los Angeles filled up during the war with a motley migration of midwest war workers, pension-hunting oldsters and migrant Mexicans, but also because large sections of the city are not under his control. What Worton found was that Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Pasadena, and half a dozen of the other cities that nudge Los Angeles and really make up its metropolitan area, operate their own police forces. On top of this, Los Angeles county han 3,000 police of its own, and it is in the county rather than the city that southern California gambling really flourishes. King-pin of Los Angeles county is colorful Sheriff Eugene Biscail- Ronald Grele Heads Freshmore Hi-Y Ronald Grele -was elected presi dent of the Freshmore Hi-Y Club at a meeting fo the group Thur,-? day evening- in the YMCA.

Three new members were also inducted into the club. They were: Harold Johnson, Lee Yeaton and Frank Green. At next Thursday's meeting: there will be ano'.hei initiation. It is expected thr.t 11 new members will be inducCed at that time.

After the hoodlums spattered the front of Sherry's with shotgun slugs in an effort to bump off Mickey Cohen, Sheriff Biscailuz decided to reenact the crime—with all witnesses present. So, accompanied by newsmen and photo<»- raphers, the sheriff arrived with his retinue. But no witnesses. After a lot of waiting, hemming and hawing, the sheriff remarked: ''Well, they must have been tired or maybe they went to the fights tonight." Whereupon he had his picture taken, pointing at the bullet holes, and went home. for some days, Los Angeies papers -were .frantically rewriting the San Francisco Chronicle stories in order to report what was going on in their own town. "Police Union" Developed What General Worton found in the Los Angeles police force may also be typical of what is happening m other American cities. When he tried to fire the head of his detectn-e force, he found that he couIdn't. The detective chief was protected by Civil Service. And if charges were preferred against him those charges were heard by a board of fellow police officers whose watchword was self-protection In brief.

Release Manual Of French Communists New Haven—When the French Communist is about lo participate in underground activity, his manual of instructions helps him get into the right frame of mind Culling himself off from his family, for example, is a relatively simple matter if he listens to the Party line: ''The militant Communist called upon to choose between his family life and work for the Party has an easy choice," according to a Party Pamphlet published in France.

These disclosures about the "French Communists are made by a former Parly member in a nfcw book published today by the Yale University Press. The author :s A. Rossi and his book is called "A Communist Party In Action.", For neatly 20 years Rossi wan an active Communist in Italy and France, but he broke completely with Communist ideology after observing Stalin's policies in Germany before Hitler came to power. In his book Rossi describes the inner workings of the French Communists, which, he says, are similar to tactics used by Communists throughout the world. The bulk of his report is on the Party's activities during the war and immedi- alely following: the end of hostilities with much of the information based on secret Party publications.
