2—XAt GAGTITK N KWS (CONN.), TIITUSDAY, DKf. I!!l, I!)|;i T DREW PEARSON ON he WASHINGTON OTl MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: U. S. Ambassador To Turkey Will Probably Not Stay Long; U. S. To Make Sweeping Water Survey; Two American Enlisted Men Remain In Communist Hands; Enlisted Men Deserve As Much Support As U. S. Consul. Washington—One American baysador not likely to'stay Ion-? nt hi; present post is delightful, c,;ir- ru'vus George Wadsworth, U. S. cr.voy to Turkey. Wadsworth follows a schel;/e •hat runs his staff ragged. He P'.ays bridge until after 3 a. m.. gets down to his office about noon, goes out for golf right after lunch, sees callers at 6 p. m. If ar. American busines^rr.ri'. ~ A 'arr.3 to see the ambassador, he is usually invited in at six. but lines su many other . a':<. i- grouped around the martini t;-.;y -ha: he can't discuss anytnii-g private. What drives Wads-worth's stiff •really wild is his belief in strict protocol. He demands, for :r -"ar.ce, that no one of lesser rank leave a dinner party until vne top ranking guest has departed. And since the ambassador usua'ly outranks everyone else. other guests have to twiddle their ?:n- gcrs until 3 a. m.. until he gets up from the bridge table. Or.c<> when a young matron, r.ct in good health, tried to Icai e a party at midnight. Wadsv.-crtn P'jt her in her place with: "Where are you going, darling?" Note—A great admirer of *r.>- Arabs. Wads-worth's denunciation of the Jews is so vigorous i* is embarrassing When Arab iigjv- taries pass through Istanbul, he. ir a frequent visitor at the airport to greet them. National Water Survey The U. S. Public Health Service w;;; soon make a sweeping sur.ev to detemine the effects of wa'.r-V shortage and water pollution on the nation's health. Federal health officials privaie- ly report that the lack of faci'itio;; to decontaminate river wate.-— which most Americans dr-n!:--i.- fhockins.

Tr.r.-y disappeared on a routine trjininr flight near Tsingtao. China, en Oct. 19, 1946—one year an.l tv.--. months ago. Word reached the Navy over the Chinese graoevir," on Nov. 4 that they had landed i.i Communist teri-itory. %vei - e aJ;\ e and in good health-. This was confirmed by additional reports in Jan. 17 and March 22. 19-19. A Communist agent, repr.-scr. 1 - ing the pair'^ raptors, got in t:)jr'i with the Navy later and offe od to negotiate their freedom. He reported that Bender and Smith l:r,d been moved from Hsia. Tien vj Nan Tsun, China, about Fob. It.. The Navy delivered a written dr i>i- rrent. asking for their release', iv- ceived an answer that the N.-.vv would he put in toueh with the 'highest authorities." However, no iurther %vord came through, so ! ho Navy tui-ned the matter over in the State Department. That l/v^ni the series of notes to Chinese '~'>rn- munist officials. Finally Mrs. Smith on July is. 19-19. appealed to Congress-. "As the Navy has evae.'3t".| China, my husband has been left behind without supplies and medicine," Mrs. Smith pleaded. ''I h;\:-.-< never been able to correspond (•:• send him supplies. 1 have -\ v ., small children, one his father ha-. never seen. My children need tlv.'ir father as I i-ec-d him."

A message ju:-L received from the American consul general at Peiping states that nn lins atlenipied further apprrvifi j to the jinthoritirs there." One month later. Gross promised agiiin: "Thn matter is a^ain heinr hrnught to the r.ttentV'n of the highest Chinese fommiini.^l .'Hith-ii'it ies at I^eiping." Another month passed. On Oct. 18. Gross reported sadly: "The consul at Tsingtao on Oct. 10. IMP, addressed an informal memorri;!- riimi to the lorn] Communist authorities stressing the humnnitr:r:- P.n nspeets of the two canes. ThU* approach was without satisfactory response from the local authorities who were 'instructed' to inform the consul that they no longer knew the whereabouts of Mr Smith and Mr. Bender." >'-:i'e.--'_ word from the. Sta 1 .c Department s:iid: ''On Nov. 25. I'M?. our consul L'i'ncral at Peiping rent a letter to Chou En-Ijii who is in- 1 charge of the foreign relation.! of the recently estahlished Chine.'-o i Communist regime requesting that he cause an enrly investigation of lne mntte.r to be made to ihc r-nj Unit the men be permitted to com* munkate with 'their families regarding their personal welfaiv.." Note---What the State Depa'-t- ment is U[) against, of course is the impossibility of sending irnu.'d iorce into China to rescue two men. However, it would seem that it should not have required a ye'i,' to ask the Communist foreign minister that the. men have the privilege of writing their families.
