For 84 Years the South9 Standard Newspaper VOL. LXXIV, No. 47 ATLANTA (2), G A., FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 10, 1951 Frie Five Cents Sizzler ATLANTA CONS ION mi Hi Hi The Iron Dice Are Rolling! The United States and the United Nations have sent a straight, short message to the i , Russians, the Koreans and Chinese. It read, "We are in Korea to the finish." That can be the only trans- lation of the request to Congress for $307,- ; 000.000 in aid to Chiang Kai-shek, j It is the more significant that most of it will go directly to modernize his army. It is also added, as a necessary part of the request, that we will carefully supervise it, and see that it is not stolen, sold to the enemy, or put on the black' market as was a huge part of the assistance sent Chiang on the mainland. We can wish to rebuild Chiang's army for but one reason.. That is to use part of it if the peace talks do break down. There grows the belief a rift has come between the Russians and the Chinese. Observers at the truce talks say the Chinese want out, but that the North Koreans, reflecting Russian pressure, are stalling and holding up agreement. So, we roll the diplomatic dice with this proposal to train and equip other Chinese. Plan We have, as General Ridgway announced some time ago, reached a stalemate. We cannot advance with what we have. Nor can we be driven out with what the Chinese can muster. If they obtain additional forces from the Russians, we will need to match them with fighting men from other sources. One of the grave weaknesses of the United Nations is that more members have not sent troons in greater numbers to Korea. But if we can obtain 100,000 from Chiang's army that would be the answer. Our military does -not have great confidence in the Generalissimo's troops, - which deserted on the mainland in vast numbers. But, it is believed that he does have enough sound soldiers to form cadres about which efficient units could be built. We will do the training and we will send men to keep an eye on the aid so that it will not be stolen and misappropriated as was so much of the materiel sent to Chiang's government on the mainland. This is the message sent to the Russians and Chinese. They will understand it. It was thrown onto the diplomatic dice table, where a lot of curious numbers come up. just when the talks seemed near to breaking down. Atomic Weapons If the talks do break down, it will be because the Russians have been able to persuade the Chinese the Formosa decision means war against their mainland. That is the gamble. But we have more than that behind this latest decision. It is pretty sure that we will throw into any resumption of major fighting, some of the new atomic weapons. This would mean atomic artillery and mortar fire, both of which reportedly are progressed to a point where enough crews exist to use at least some of the fire power tested some months ago in Nevada. If there is a wedge already driven between the Chinese Communists and the Kremlin, this news of Chiang plus the fact that if the Red forces do defeat the treaty the United States will provide the UN with even more effective retaliation, should drive that wedge a little deeper. So, we led from strength with straight hard-hitting message despite its apparent ambiguous lack of directness. "We are there to stay." Meanwhile, there is the necessity to exploit the possibility of a real diversion of the Chinese revolutionary force from the Russian orbit toward our own. They are Communists, but it always has been true that the Chinese never cared for any foreign domination, including the Russian. Had it not been for the folly of the Chiang lobby in this country that diversion might have been accomplished some years ago. Now. at any rate, we are seeking to bring it off. This latest decision to train Chiang's troops should be helpful . . . provided it is handled so that the Russians do not explain it to the Chinese as the beginning of American aggression against their mainland. At any rate, the iron dice are rolling and the odds are better than they have been. Move on Manchuria TAIPEH.

Rep. Preston Demands Probe Of Sinatra-Gangland Charge Article Links Entertainer to Underworld By GLADSTONE WILLIAMS Copyright by The Atlanta Constitution WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 Aroused over published charges linking Frank Sinatra, the wellknown singer, with certain gangster operations, Rep. Prince Preston, of Statesboro, Thursday made a formal request to the Kefau-ver Senate Crime Investigat ing committee tnat it launcn a broad-scale inquiry into the alleged control of entertainers by criminal elements. ( Preston told the committee that since Sinatra has such a wide following in the entertainment field, particularly among teen-agers, public interest demands that a full investigation be made of his reported association with and control by gangsters. He called the committee's attention to an article in the current issue of a nationally distributed magazine, entitled "Gangsters in the Night Clubs," in which serious allegations are made about people in the entertainment field being closely identified with "gangsters, racketeers and narcotic peddlers." GUIDED BY CRIMINALS? "Prominently mentioned in this article," said the Georgia Con- gressman, "is the well-known singer, Frank Sinatra, and in dealing with this person the writer of the article states that the information he obtained on Sinatra came from narcotic files in the Treasury Department. "The writer of the article alleges that Treasury files reveal that Sinatra is guided and partially owned. by such well-known criminals as the Fischetti brothers and Lucky Luciano." Among other things, the author of the article said the Treasury files show "that the crooner had been adopted by underworld big shots for the specific purpose of making his sponsors seem respectable, thereby furthering their business enterprises, which included, among other things, the wholesale distribution of narcotics." . Preston went on to say that when the article was first brought to his attention he personally telephoned the narcotics commissioner under the Treasury Department to make inquiry regarding the truths of the allegations relative to Treasury files. On the following day. he added, "Narcotics Commissioner Harry J. Anslinger advised me over the telephone that the comments relative to the Treasury files were 'substantially correct'." PROBE SEEMS IN ORDER Since Sinatra is such a well known entertainer, having a large group of admirers among the teenagers, and further since theTreas-ury department has confirmed allegations made in the article, it seems to me that public interest demands that your committee take cognizance of these facts and institute an investigation into the control of entertainers by the criminal element, and specifically the activ ities of Frank Sinatra. So far as known. Sinatra is yet to defend himself against the charges. The Senate committee may call on him to do so, and if he fails, he may find himself out lawed from further entertainment contracts.

P. TRUSSELL New York Timet New Service - Special to The Atlanta Conatitutie ' WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 By it vote of 348 to 2, the House of Representatives passed the $56,062,405,890 Department of Defense appropriation bill Thursday to raise and maintain an armed force of 3,500,000 men through at least the greater part of the current fiscal year. It was the largest peacetime military money measure of record. The House was told that more funds would be requested before the year ended next June 30. OTHER ACTIONS The House also: ' l.

The six divisions, the'. . . ..... . . A. number under present military juration. Authorizations for both plans, were approved after last military and economic assistance Spring's "great debate, by Senate, were cut by the committee below resolution. The objective was . to write the Senate expression into law. The proposal, sponsored by Frederick R. Coudert Jr. (Rep., N. Y.), was defeated by a vote of 131-84. 2. Voted, 81-71, to deny retire ment pay to officers and enlisted men of all the services who re tired for reasons other than age or disability. It was reported that 27 Army generals and 10 Air Force generals, and 22 admirals of the Navy left the service during the first six months of this year. The appropriations committee already had reduced the retirement pay account by $15,000,000 for! this year as a discouragement of retirements. 3. Voted, 122-102 to release recalled inactive and volunteer reserves, veterans of World War II, after 12 months of new service, rather than the 17 months now set by law. TWO DISSENTERS The two dissenters to the $5(5,-000,000.000 bill were Rep. Howard H.:Buffett (Rep., Neb.), and Fred Marshall, (Dent, of Minn.). No attempt was made by the House to reduce the bill's total from the record figure set by the appropriations group after it had reduced the Defense Department's request for $57,605,014,390 by $1,-542,608,500. These cuts had been made, mostly in civilian personnel and procurement accounts, after 11 weeks of closed-session hearings with top officials and officers and other key personnel as the witnesses. The total approved was $7,-823,082,966 more than the $48,-239,322,924 that Congress appropriated for the Armed Services in a series of bills during the fiscal year that ended last June 30. It did not include the cost of 'the war in Korea for the new fiscal year. Nor did. it contain a $5,768,-000,000 program covering construction of new bases and facilities for all' the services here and abroad, many of them top secret, the biggest in either war or peacetime. The $56,000,000,000 .bill now goes to the Senate. 94 High, Scattered Showers on Tap HOl Rtr TEMPER ATI' ft R 7 . m. 14 p. m.

Ridgway broke off the talks Sunday when his delegation reported a company of armed Chinese Communist soldiers had been observed near the meeting site on Saturday. The Communists later sent a reply saying the presence of the troops was an "accident" and the whole incident was trivial. Ridgway disagreed a nd . Tuesday sharply demanded fresh assurances. Meanwhile he kept his negotiators at home. Thursday night the Communists gave the renewed assurances but at the same time suggested that the Allies might "deliberately fabricate incidents' to end the stalled negotiations.
