Monday Evening, May 27, 1957, Workhorse C-47 Plane Is Still Widely Used LOS ANGELES—They stopped j building the C-47, the workhorse of World War II. on VE day, but like the model-A Ford it goes on and on. They're still making parts for the old flying wonders that wrote heroic legends in the skies across both oceans and drew and wondering gasps of the men who flew them and the grateful thanks of a nation at war. Aviation experts say that the C-47 beat the Liberty ships as a logistics weapon that helped to win the war. It won a place in the Smithsonian Institute. The first of some 12,000 C-47S rolled down the Donald W. Douglas assembly lines in Santa Monica, Calif., in December. 1S35. It was the third design in the Douglas series, the DC-3, called by the Army Air Force the C-47 and by the Navy the K4D. Douglas still makes parts for the C-47 and will continue so long as there is a demand. Airline Service The ship has been known variously a.s the Jungle Express, the Sky-trooper, or Old Fatso, British called her the Dakota. And American lighting men had all sorts of affectionate names for the "old reliable." At one time, SO per cent of U. S. air Iravel was via the Df,'-.'i. The latest census—in \'Xa — revealed that more than 1,500 still are flying—an estimated 17,000,000 passenger miles daily. Owners, aside from the military, include major U. S. airlines and the airline:; of nearly every foreign nation. Even the Russians purchased a firw in the late l'J30's and, mirier a liccn.'.'ing agreement, began turn- Ing them out in quantity as the Ilyu.ihin LI-2. This craft is the mainstay of air tran.'.jKirtatiim today behind the Iron Curlainn. j Nationalists Hunt Leaders Of Tape! Riots Investigation Indicates That Outbreaks On Formosa Were Well Organized TAIPEf, Formosa (UP)—U.S. officials said today the anti-American riots in Taipei were "definitely organized," possibly by political forces anxious to make a cal with the Chinese CommunisLs. Communists throughout Asia seized on the riots in an all-out effort to discredit American activities in the Far Kast. A threat of new anti-American riots in Manila cuused the U.S. Embassy there today to order precautions. The Americans said they be- _.lieved no top government officials I had any part in the widespread ,j";jj c I destruction of Friday but they did blame inaction by the government on the completeness of the destruction. Foreign Minister George Yell told a news conference today that no government agency or political organization liad directed or insti- giiied the riots. American officials pinned some of their suspicion on the deliberate attack on the embassy code room —an attack which compromiser! some of the codes used by the embassy. The demonstrators enl creel the embassy armed with heavy tools and set to work rm a heavy iron door guardin the code room. When they failed to make a dent they began digging through Uie ,„, ,,,. . , . , i six-inch concrete wall. The IX-:) ook part n every | „ s Am j )assadol .

FRESNO, Calif. — A man-made cavern near here has become a big tourist attraction after remaining .a "secret world", for 46 years. The Fresno Underground Gardens were created by one man who worked with a pick and shovel for nearly 40 years digging out some 60 rooms as much as '20 feet be- jneath the surface. This maze of j rooms, passageways, gardens and I courtyards was revealed to the I public in 1954, eight'years after ' the death of its creator. Baldasare Forestiere became known as the "human mole" during the years he worked on his mysterious project. The structure never was completed, but visitors are amazed at what lie did accomplish. . Citrus trees, rare shrubs and flowers are protected from the scorching summer heat in underground courtyards opening to the sky. One tree is grafted to bear seven different kinds of fruit. In explaining the purpose behind Forestiere's tireless efforts in excavating the gardens, the story is told that he at first planned only to build an underground living quarters to escape from the heat of the San Joaquin Valley, where summer temperatures soar to 320 degrees or higher. On the hottest days, temperatures remain in the 70's in the caverns and it is several degrees warmer than above ground in the winter. Forestiere's plan lo open his "secret world" as an underground restaurant is explained to tourists as they roam through his below ground apartment and an automobile tunnel some 700 feet long. Joseph, Forestiere, an older brother, added a huge ballroom to the structure after it was opened to the public and is planning construction of a fish pond which tourists may view both from above and below.
