rage * THE W1NONA REPUBLICAN-HERALD, W1NONA, MINNESOTA FRIDAY, AUGUST 3, 1«1 Truman, Baruch, Lausche, Puzzle Politicians Washington --7P)-- Political leaders, both Republican and Democrat, conceded today that President Truman and Governor Frank J. Lausche of Ohio had them guessing. Lausche, who has a habit of puzzling his Democratic party colleagues, did it again at the White House Thursday by announcing that he had urged Mr. Truman to run In 3952. The Ohio governor reported that the President smiled and thanked him. Mr. Truman himself got off a political brow lifter earlier in the day. He hinted at his weekly news conference that General Dwight D. Eisenhower's duties in Europe would not interfere if the general is interested in politics in 1952. The President went on to say he believes Eisenhower, claimed by some in both major parties as their favorite candidate, will put duty to his country first. ike Again Lausche also brought up the name of Eisenhower, saying that the U.S. governors conference wanted the general to be principal j speaker next month at its confer-' ence at Gatlinburg, Tenn. He said Mr. Truman suggested that the governors contact the general directly. Lausche is chairman of the governors conference. Both Democratic and Republican party leaders here saw a possibility that Governor Lausche was making an early personal bid for strong Democratic party support for next year. Many expect him to oppose Republican Senator Brieker of Ohio. They recalled that Lausche carefully avoided taking sides last year in the contest between Republican Senator Taft and Joe T. Ferguson the Democratic senatorial candidate. Some also noted that Lausche did not get aboard the Truman presidential train until the President visited Ohio as the 1948 candidate. Old Friends Brieker said he had no comment on Lausche's statement. He added that he and the governor are old friends. Brieker has not announced his re-election bid, but it is expected. Senator Brewster (R.-Me.), generally regarded as a backer of Senator Taft for the presidency in 1952, asked a reporter why President Truman was bringing up Eisenhower's name at weekly press conferences. "I agree with Bernard Baruch that it would be a great disservice to General Eisenhower to put him into the political area," Brewster said. Baruch. long-time adviser to presidents, made this comment in New York city after arriving home from a European trip during which he talked with General Eisenhower. Brewster said he wondered if "Mr. Truman IK trying to name the presidential candidate for either party, or maybe both." Senator Moody (D.-Mich.), who flew out to Detroit last Saturday with the President, expressed doubt that Mr. Truman was boosting either Eisenhower or himself for 1952. "I'm sure ! don't know if President Truman will be a candidate and I doubt that even he knows," Moody, a former newspaperman, said. By Gratchen L. Lamberton T HE other hot afternoon I sat on the shadyJback porch of Mrs. A. H. Booth in Goodview looking out over her charming garden and visiting with her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Glen P. Sieging, of Washington, D. C., and two extraordinarily interesting young men they had brought with them. Eldora Booth Bieging who used to be in a Sunday school class I taught years ago (was that swishing noise 1 just heard behind me Father Time's scythe?) married a big blonde major in the Air Force. Glen was in the first batch of American flyers to be sent to England to learn about the highly secret radar which was still unknown in America. He became a radar expert, and since the war has served in highly technical and secret capacity at U. S. Air Force headquarters in Washington. Their two guests were a brilliant young Chinese newspaperman named William Yuan-Chang and an equally interesting young leader of the Chinese underground named Yoh Shing Tsoo. William Yu-an-Chang, or Bill Chang, or Yukon Chang as he signs his magazine-articles, is a slender, intense, brilliant editor, born in Honolulu and sent by his parents to St. John's Episcopal college in China from 1933 to 1937. Then he went to Shanghai where he wrote a daily column for The China Press, largest English paper in China; later he became editor of it. He worked against Japanese aggression in China, and during World War II helped formulate the plan for turning the South China coast over to American forces when it was thought it would be necessary to land troops in China in order to defeat Japan. At the end of the war when Chinese Reds under Russian guidance began to swallow up town after town in China, Yukon Chang, who couldn't stand to see China go Communist, began to work with the Chinese underground or anti- Communist movement. Traitorous Chinese officials who sold out to Russia were "liquidated," guerilla troops were raised and equipped, and all possible resistance to Communism was fostered. Yukon Chang is now in New York writing free-lance articles. An exciting article of his, "China's Not All Red Yet," appeared in the Saturday Evening Post on June 30, and another one on Chinese guerillas in the same magazine on January 27. He has also written articles for many other American publications, and on the side is completing his first novel which is to be a sort of "Tree Grows In Brooklyn" about a Chinese youngster growing up in Honolulu. Yukon Chang met Yob Shing Tsoo while working in the Chinese underground in Shanghai, and the two have been fast friends since. Yoh Shing Tsoo, or Bernard Yoh, is secretary to Bishop Paul Yu- Pim of Nanking, who incidentally is the number one war criminal on the Chinese Communist list. Yoh, a smiling, stocky young man, told about helping the underground liquidate the traitorous Quisling mayor Fu: "It was difficult because he was so shifty and so well guarded. But one of our underground workers through bribery got a job as assistant cook in Fu's elaborate household. Studying the elusive Mr. Fu's habits he found that always right after a heavy lunch he took a nap with one of his many concubines. So the new cook put a razor- sharp edge on a big butcher knife--a gun would be too noisy-and at 2 o'clock slipped into the bedroom and sliced the throat of the sleeping mayor so neatly that there was no blood at all. The concubine woke up, but before she could scream our man told her to hush up for 15 minutes while he got away or she'd get a similar neat throat-slicing job. They never caught our man. We also had to liquidate the corrupt tax collector and some other traitor officials." Yoh was put in charge of supplying weapons to the anti-Communist guerrillas.

Minn, under tb« c' of Cong-ess of March 2 IB7S Both men have watched with abhorrence the way the Communists work according to Russian plan. First the Red army conquers some territory, then trained Communist organizers take over and form a stooge "People's court." The large landowners are killed, the medium-sized ones are exiled, and the lands are divided up among the very poor. The big catch in this is that soon thereafter all this land is declared "nationalized' and becomes the property of the Communist state. Both men believe that the great scattered bands of anti- Communist guerillas all over China should be unified, directed and equipped, and they ask the significant question. "What country is capable of doing this?" They have watched the Communists use food os propaganda and they believe fervently thai the "full rice bowl" for the masses of starving Chinese is one of the most powerful factors in keeping China from going completely Communist. When I told them that we in the V. S. are now being told that Chang Kai-shek and his government are very corrupt they smiled and said, "Oh well, he has about him. some deepfreeze and fur-coat men, some five-percenters, very much like Mr. Truman. Yes. his government is much like Mr. Truman's." RUSHFORD, MINN. Sunday-Monday August 5, 6 u l Can Set li For You Wholesale" Susan Hayward Dan Daiiey The greatest since "Eve."

Comedy and Cartoon Representative Tears' Acheson Korea Withdrawal Washington --l/fi-- Representative Lawrence H. Smith (R.-Wis.) said today he is "fearful" that Secretary of State Acheson won't stand by his guns in ruling put the 38th parallel as a cease-fire line in Korea. "I am hoping that the secretary does not yield, but when it winds up I am fearful we will be right back on the 38th parallel," Smith told a reporter. Acheson told a news conference Tuesday that the 38th parallel cannot be accepted as a cease-fire line because it is not militarily defensible. But Smith, a frequent critic of Secretary Acheson, said he believes this statement "is a facade, a front." The way Smith sees it, the deadlock over truce negotiations .will continue for some time, possibly two weeks, and "the United Stages will then recede 'in the interests of a peaceful solution of the Korean problem.' " Allied Jets Blaze Path for Troops In Central Korea U. S. Eighth Army Headquarters, i Korea --(JFl-- Fire bombing F-80 Shooting Star jets blazed a path for United Nations troops to capture a hill on the central Korean front today, the Fifth Air Force! reported. The Eighth army said action along the front was limited mostly | to patrol clashes. Some of them were prolonged fights, including a four and a haU hour battle in the no-man's-land east of the Kaesong cease-fire neutral zone. The Air Force said the Shooting Stars got in on the front line action near Kumhwa, fallen eastern anchor of the old iron triangle. To the east of Kumhwa, the Eighth army reported day-long fights between U.N. patrols in the area south of Red-held Kumsong and small Communist units. Yes- iterday Allied troops advanced up to two miles along a seven-mile front in this sector, virtually unopposed. Another day-long fight, starting at dawn and continuing into the afternoon, was reported north of Yanggu in the eastern sector. Dixiecrat Says South Won't Stomach Truman Philadelphia, Miss. --(,41-- Southern Democrats will bolt the national party again before they Will accept President Truman to head the 1952 party ticket, predicts Governor Fielding Wright of Mississippi. Wright, 1948 states rights candidate for vice president, said the South is opposed to the centralized, socialistic proposals advocated by the President. He said he did not think the South would accept President Truman as a candidate for re-election under any conditions. W r i g h t made the comments Thursday night in a telephone interview from Jackson, Miss., when he was asked to elaborate on a speech earlier in the day here. Wright forecast another southern rebellion if the national party follows its 1948 course. He said the national administration had not soft-pedalled its civil rights proposals, but that a coalition of Southern Democrats and Republi cans had blocked them. He listed Governor J a m e s Byrnes of South Carolina, Senator Richard Russell o£ Georgia and Senator Harry Byrd of Virginia, all Democrats, as likely leaders. Wright said, "the South is opposed to the police state the FEPC (Fair Employment Practices commission) would set up." He added that he was retiring to private life after his term expires next January, but as a priv ate citizen he would "accept a small part (in such a southern rebellion) if called upon to do so." Eight candidates are seeking to succeed him in next Tuesday's primary in this solidly Democratic state. All are avowed states right- ers. The 1948 southern revolt against the Fair deal and civil rights resulted in the states rights ticket headed by former Governor J. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina. It carried Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and South Carolina. Wright said he was not opposed to proposals by Senator Carl Mundt (R.-S.D.) for a coalition of Republicans and southern Democrats. He said, however, that he thought such a proposal would involve too many difficulties to be ironed out in time for the 1952 elections. He believed there should be a realignment of political forces, with conservative elements of both major parties forming one group and the so-called liberal elements of both parties in the other, he declared. He said he was not in favor of setting up a third party, that he believed in the two-party system, without any splinter groups. · Woman at Air Base Four Days Austin, Texas --i/fi-- A shapely redhead charged with impersonating an officer says she smiled her way to a four-day stay at Bergstrom Air Force base here. Attractive Medalo Frances Evans (she says she's 26 but her husband thinks she's 22) was jailed by the F.B.I. Bail was set at $1,000. The 120-pound bundle of glib happiness wired her husband, Sergeant Rufus R. Evans of Biggs Air Force base, El Paso, Thursday to come to her aid. There was no immediate answer. "We wish it hadn't happened," said Colonel Ben Lichty--not smiling. He said it was "very embarrassing" that she had been able to spend four days at the base as a WAF officer.

Brooks, who has become nationally famous by aiding law enforcement officials with the dogs, was charged in police court with violating the city's dog ordinance in the manner in which he keeps the hounds. He had pleaded innocent last week when he appeared in the court on a complaint signed by two neighbors. The neighbors and members of the eity health department testified for the city Thursday morning. Several other witnesses were scheduled to testify during the afternoon. City Attorney Fred Steele is prosecuting the case while Rudolph Schlabach is representing Brooks. Near Kitchen Window Mrs. Emma Hoff, 124 South 24th street, was the first neighbor to testify. She said she lives next door to Brooks and. the kennels housing the famed hounds are about 15 leet from her kitchen window. Mrs. Hoff stated the dogs bark and howl loudly both day and night and disturb both her and other neighbors. She asserted they are kept in an unsanitary manner and produce "dog odors" and flies. The witness stated Brooks, who has lived in the neighborhood for more than 20 years, moved next door to her residence last month. She said he has been a good neighbor and the dogs have not yet behaved as badly in the new kennels as in the old. Complains of Hoists When Schlabach displayed the layout of a recent magazine article about Brooks, Mrs. Hoff ad- mitted he works in the public interest with the hounds. Mrs. Mitchell testified that she lives next door to Brooks and the hounds are kept about 45 to 50 feet from her house. She said the dogs make noise, bowl and bark until stopped. The neighbor stated flies abound near her back porch and that they were not there before the dogs moved in. Brooks silences the dogs, she said, by turning water on them and kicking them. Schlabach asked Mrs. Mitchell whether her husband and Brooks had had trouble over union labor This, he said, is "the heart of the case." Steele objected that the question was extraneous and it was not answered. Charles Trevallee, health department sanitarian, testified that he inspected the kennels July 20 and found flies in them. The flies, he said, were not ordinary houseflies but a type of insect which is found around animals. Travallee stated the kennels were not at least 25 feet from Mrs. Hoff's house as required. He said he asked Brooks to move the kennels and that Brooks has not moved them. Instead, according to Trevalle, Brooks constructed a gate in the runway for the dogs intended to keep them 25 feet from the house. This is not a satisfactory arrangement, the sanitarian said. Edward Peters, acting health officer, testified that he inspected the kennels and found both flies and odors. He stated Brooks could not use enough lime to kill the odors because an adequate amount would be injurious to the dogs' feet. Four Escape Red Poland in Plane New Bill Appears For St. Lawrence Seaway Project Washington --i/n-- Two senators started the St. Lawrence seaway argument all over again Thursday by introducing new legislation calling for development of the controversial project. The House public works committee has just refused to approve a bill to develop this waterway between Canada and the United States. Senators Moody (D.-Mich.) and Aiken (R.-Vt.), however, revived the question with the argument that the project would be important to national defense. Their proposal would require congressional approval for disposition of power from the project on the United States side of the International rapids sections. A V O · · Theater Stockholm--I*-- A bullet riddled Polish training aircraft carrying' four Poles, one of them a woman, landed at the Bulltofta airport, near Malmoe, southern Sweden, today. The Poles made their dramatic escape from Red Poland in a homemade plane less than 24 hours after 12 sailors of the Polish navy staged a mutiny aboard a minesweeper and escaped to this country. Preliminary reports from Malmoe said the takeoff of the four Poles was preceded by a gun fight. The three men and a woman were whisked away from Bulltofta airport in Swedish police cars.

She slipped up when she went to see Colonel Lichty and asked him to help her get a waiver of college credit so she could become a WAF officer. She mentioned the flight from Biggs in an Air Force plane. Lichty had a check started on her right away. i Mrs. Evans explained two rea-1 sons why she wanted to be a WAF officer. If she were a WAF officer, she said, (1), she would be able to keep her sergeant husband from being sent overseas, and (2), she could "knock the pins from under" a certain warrant officer at Las Cruces, N. M. The warrant officer restricted the sergeant to the base the day after the two were married July 23 in Las Cruces. Showing Today and Saturday If i Iht tcarfotiiit in f . lough kUtonr.'
