2 Official State end City Paper Pad Assured Transport Into Berlin, U. S. Says U. S. Uncovers Secret Exchange to Back Up I Stand Against Russia WASHINGTON U. The United States claimed today that the Soviet blockade of Berlin is illegal and pointed to a long- secret Truman-Stalin exchange to prove it. Secretary of State C. Marshall cited the June. 1945. exchanee in a stern note to Moscow protest- ing Soviet curbs on highway and raj traffic into the former German capital. The American protest was made public Friday night along with those of the British and French-Moscow has not yet replied. Says V, S. Determined Marshall said flatly that this country "will not be induced by threats, pressure or other actions to abandon" its right to remain in Berlin. "It is hoped. he added, "that the Soviet government entertains! no doubu whatsoever on this j point." Diplomatic quarters pointed out that Russia so far has not directly questioned the legal right ef American forces to supply their area of Berlin. But the effect Is the same since the Soviets have cut off land communications for "technical reasons." Hint UN Ilearin Marshall's note, handed Tuesday to the Soviet ambassador here, implied that the three western powers would carry their rase to the United Nations unless Moscow lifts the blockade and agrees to four-power talks on the Berlin problem. He states that the Soviet action is "intolerable," and contrary to humanitarian principles, and brings about an "extremely serious international situation." After reciting the usual reasons for American rights to its sector of Berlin. Marshall pulled out his diplomatic ace in the form cf a paraphrased version of the Truman-Stalin exchange. Specified Free Access He recalled that Pres. Truman on June 14. 1945, proposed in a message to the Soviet leader that American and Russian forces be instructed to withdraw to previously agreed areas of occuDation in Germanr on June 21. The President made this proposal contingent on Premier Stalin's approval of free access of air. rail, and land transportation for American forces from Frankfurt and Bremen to Berlin. Stalin on June IS took no exception to Mr. Truman's suggestion on transportation rights. But he expressed regret that mines in Berlin, and prior committments of Marshal Gregori Zhukov, Soviet military commander, made! ii luipuasiuie to eiievi ine troop movements until July 1. Mr. Tru man confirmed the July 1 date, and the exchange ended. Grandma, 73, Grandson Wed at Same Time MTLFORD, N. M.OI.R About everybody In thsi tree-shaded village turned out today to see the double wedding of a 73-year-old great-grandmother and her 19-year-old grandson. The old gray Baptist church was jampacked. Lota of folks had to stand outside on the grass as Mrs. Lillian H. Brown repeated her vows with Charles H. Colby, 73. at the same ceremony in which her grandson, Arthur A. Hendrickson, Jr.. was married to l-year-old Ruth Clark. There were graybeards and heir elderly wives on hand to see spry and buxom Mrs. Brown wed to Colby, a ramrod-straight contractor. Bride Still in School Minging with them were boys and girls of the bobby sox set. They had come to see young Hendrickson, a high school baseball and basketball hero who graduated only a few weeks ago, married to his schooldays sweetheart who still is a junior at Mil-ford High. Mother Brown, her gray hair crisply waved, wore a blue crepe dress. She appeared more flut-tery than her grand-daughter-to-be who wore an exquisite satin gown of traditional white for the ceremony. The Rev. Earl Mack officiated. Engaged Since Christmas "Charles and I have been engaged since last Christmas and didn't plan to be married for a while," she said blushingly. "But Arthur came over last Monday night and said 'granny, how about you getting married along with me this week,' and I said I guessed 1 would." Well, said Mrs. Brown with a twinkle in her eye, there wasn't time to get out invitations. Wasn't hardly time even to call up her family that includes six children, 12 grandchildren and seven greatgrandchildren. So Arthur and I just told the whole town (pop. 4,068) to come," she said. For the family a reception was arranged at her daughters home. What's the right age to marry? Well, the new Mrs. Colby said she didn't know. She thought 73 was all right, so was IS.

LADY'S CIGAR 2& Anti-Truman Forces Retreat Henderson Leads Stump for Douglas (Continued from Page One) cratie residential nomination, . The board recessed without reaching a decision and agreed to meet later in the day. t Pennsylvania national committeeman David Lawrence, delega tion leader, said his state's votes would go for Mr. Truman except for possibly two or three, .fenn sylvania has 74 convention votes. Californlans Swing California's big delegation with S4 votes tumbled off an early train with well more than half ready to vote for Mr. Iruman s nomination Wednesday night and the others wavering. Boss Frank Hague of New Jer sey was expected to surrender to the President this afternoon aner a delegation caucus. Some of the arriving Califor-nians were spluttering protests when thev reached their hotel. Thev claimed local Douglas- for president rooters had infiltrated their ranks when they got oil tne train to wave mis-leading signs callinz for the nomination of Su preme Court Justice William O. Douglas. Many Bolt Caucus The bie show tonight was to have been a stop-Truman caucus of party big shots including James Roosevelt, Hague, Mayor William O'Dwyer of New York and boss Jacob M. Arvey of Chi cago. Most of the top flight party leaders have bolted the caucus to snatch at Mr. Truman's coat tails. Arvey and O'Dwyer were first to run. Roosevelt followed them to day. Meanwhile, a drive with pow erful backing was underway to drum up support of Douglas for the vice presidential nomination A report that Douglas was the White House choice for the No, spot spread gloom 'among many pro-Truman Democrats, who feared selection of the liberal supreme court justice would offend already rebellious southerners. Stands by Ike Gov. J. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina made a final appeal to the President to withdraw. He said Mr. Truman should help select a ticket "which will help Democratic party to win in November." Thurmond said Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower still was his candidate and that he thought the general might still be persuaded to run. Thurmond stands almost alone among the anti-Truman Democrats. Seek Another Man Some of his opponents have surrendered and are calling for Mr. Truman s nomination. Others are talking mostly to themselves about the possibility of nomi nating anyone of the following men: Sen. Alben W. Barklev of Ken tucky. Chief Justice Fred M. Vin son of Kentucky, Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas of wasnington, Secretary of State George C. Marshall, or former speaker Sam Ravburn. uen. JJwight D. Eisenhower's statement Friday that he would refuse the Democratic presidential nomination if it were tendered to him killed the stop-Truman movement so far as control of this convention was concerned. Took Six Months It took Ike nearly 6 months and more than 1,500 words in a series of statements and letters to say "no." But when he took himself out Friday it was for keeps. The Pacific coast rebellion against Mr. Truman's nomination began to crumple today with arrival of James Roosevelt and the California, convention. Roosevelt said he was convinced now that Ike would not accept the nomination. "So far as I know the caucus scheduled for tonight is off," Roosevelt told questioners at the railroad station. "It was called by Jacob Arvey's headquarters and I judge it has been dropped in view of Arvey's statement Friday." Arvey is the Democratic leader of Cook county (Chicago). He joined Mayor William O'Dwyer of New York Friday in a statement withdrawing from the Ike-for-President movement and endorsing Mr. Truman.

(International Soundphoto) Carole Landis to Be Buried in Quiet Forest Lawn Today HOLLYWOOD (U.R) Beautiful Carole Landis will be buried today in a quiet green cemetery overlooking Hollywood, the city that brought her fame and heartbreak. Despite the hot day, hundreds of movie stars and fans planned to trudge up the Forest Lawn hill to pay final tribute to the blonde star who killed herself Monday.

Sports Arena Plans Advance at Milwaukee MILWAUKEE (U.R) Milwaukee's proposed $3 million dollar sports arena was another step nearer Wisconsin sports fans today. The auditorium board Friday voted to call for bids on the project to open next Wednesday. Architect A. C. Eschweiler, Jr., told the board he could have the plans and specifications ready for bidders by late next week. They were completed two years ago, he said, but the current wage rates for the various building trades have to be written in, the architect explained. The arena, to be located in downtown Milwaukee, would en- able Milwaukee to stage big time i against Lewis. He said Lewis basketball, boxing and other "cornered" him at Schenk's cor-sports. The arena would be con- ners, made abusive marks, shoved structed adjacent to the present I him around, and knocked his Muncipal Auditorium. 1 pipe out of his mouth.

Inquiry Ended The death was officially entered on the coroner's records as a suicide Friday, and both the district attorney's office and grand jury said they planned no further inquiries. Official interest in the case ended. Coroner Ben Brown said when Harrison's statements at an "informal" inquest failed to un cover any motive for the sudden suicide.

Their cries, as - they approach 19 and possible draff calls, are reaching Capitol Hill. One houte member is demanding that Pres. Truman himself do something about it. According to selective service estimates some 3.300 youngsters daily pass their 19th birthday. In so doing they may be losing for good the chance congress thought it gave them to sign up for hitches of one year. In passing the draft act the lawmakers believed they were putting into effect immediately the special privilage for 18-year-olds. The defense department says, however, that this was not the case. Army Secretary Kenneth C. Royall says he cannot accept the one-year enlistments until the budget director approves his cost estimates and makes the money available. He points out that this restriction on the program was approved by congress when it passed the military appropria tions act. How soon it can be complied with, he does not know Royall says he is studying the possibility of making the voluntary enlistment privilege retroactive to cover all youngsters who have turned 19 since the draft act became law last month. Some congressional experts doubt; however, that it can be done. The draft law says specifically that the privilege shall be confined to 161,000 men annually between the ages of 18 and 19. Technically, no 19-year-olds are eligible. Tulane Soph Reaches Finals INDIANAPOLIS (U.R) Jack Tuero, 22-year-old Tulane University sophmore, moved into the finals in the Western Tennis tourney today after his smashing defeat of Rumanian Vini Rurac.

College 6-4. 3-6, 6-3 in the quarter-fi- t r Saturday, July 10, 1948 Labor Act Repeal Plank Doubted Democrat Leader Cites Party Split Over Veto PHILADELPHIA (U.R) A Democratic congressional leader expressed doubt today that the party's 1948 platform will call for repeal of the Taft-Hartley labor law even though it was enacted over Pres. Truman's veto. The labor plank of the platform and the still more controversial civil rights issue are the toughest questions facing platform writers, who must submit a party declaration to the Democratic national convention next week. The; drafting committee finished three days of public hearings Friday night and a subcommittee today began work on writing the platform. The congressional leader, who didn't want his name mentioned, doubted that the party could ask repeal of the Taft-Hartley law because Democrats in congress had split into nearly equal groups over the Republican-sponsored bill last year. A majority of house Democrats ; voted to override Pres. Tru-; man's veto while senate Demo- -crats favored sustaining it by a 22 to 20 margin. The belief that the convention could not support repeal of the law was shared by some members of the drafting committee, ... although others favored a repeal pledge. Both the AFL and CIO have asked the Democrats to fight for repeal. Sen. Francis J. Myers of Pennsylvania, chairman of the plat form committee, invited a five-member subcommittee io begin work today on writing the platform. He told reporters the group would work only on language and would make no specific rec- ' ommendations.

In the living room she borrow-" ed a bottle of stout and added Mrs. Plummer's pocketbook to her loot. Then she climbed the stairs. In the bathroom she turned on the faucets and dabbed at her-"-self with a powder puff. In the bedroom she wrapped herself in pink eiderdown and climbed into bed. There she uncorked the bottle. She still was swigging away when the police arrived, summoned by a neighbor. They brought along a cage and attendant from the fair grounds where Elizabeth had escaped. A bag of black currants lured Elizabeth back into her cage.
