Ten Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Expect More Corrupt Charges in Unions NEWS OUTLOOK By CHARLES M. MCCANN United Press Staff Correspondent United Press correspondents around the world look aheau at the news that will make the headlines. INSIDE LABOR AFL-CIO insiders report that two or three more labor unions may be charged with corruption before the new year is very old. The charges will be filed, labor sources say, after new hearings by the Senate Rackets Committee. WORRY Privately, American diplomats in London are very worried about British grass-roots reaction to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization meeting in Paris. Many Britons are asking whether their alliance with the United States is worth its possible cost in this missile age. They fear that American missile bases would draw dire Russian vengeance. Left-wingers are saying that one H-bomb launched from East Germany— 500 miles away — could kill up wards of 10 million people in the tightly-packed London area. DULLES VS STASSEN And by the way, Washington reports that the results of the Paris meeting won't reduce the friction between Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and Presidential Disarmament Adviser Harold ">tas- sen. Backstage reports are that Stassen was purposely left off the American delegs.tion because Dulles was determined to put all-out emphasis on missile bases. Stassen bucked vainly in private for a position combining Dulles' views with a recommendation for new disarmament talks. Despite Dulles, NATO did combine missiles and disarmament — with disarmament first. The state of relations between Dulles and Stassen was underlined when Stassen showed up to greet President .Eisenhower on his return from the Paris NATO meeting but stayed away when Dulles, his immediate superior, flew in the following day. THAW Look for a spate of nuclear weapons information previously withheld from the public. After the Russians launched Spulnik I, the Defense Department put out Bon-classified information on missiles faster than it could be digested. But the Atomic Energy Commission is forbidden by law to tell the taxpayer anything about the size, weight, looks and composition of A-bombs and H-bombs. The administration wants the law changed to permit release of more information. TITO European diplomats no longer say that President Tito's attack of lumbago was diplomatic — an excuse to keep away from last month's Bolshevik anniversary in Moscow. He really is seriously ailing. His .activities have been cut to a minimum. But fairly trustworthy reports say that the veteran Yugoslav leader if; improving and should be able to return to Belgrade from his Adriatic retreat by spring anyway. SPORTS OUTLOOK America should win a Davis Cup singles, match from Australia for the first time in three years in this week's play in Melbourne. But the huge silver trophy is expected to remain "Down Under" for another year. The Australians have shut out the Yanks 5-0 in each of the last two challenge rounds. HIGH, LOW TEMPERATURES NEW YORK ('UP) — The high reported temperature in the nation Sunday was 77 degrees at Brownsville, Kingsville and Corpus Christi, Tex. The low this morning was 17 below zero at Big Piney, Wyo. Charge Young Father Lured Girl Into Car Suspect Questioned About Disappearance Of Another Girl, Age 7 MADISON, Wis. (UP)—A young father was to be arraigned today on charges of luring a 10-year-old girl into his car, and- authorities questioned the suspect in the disappearance of a little Illinois girl. Wendell Howes, 21, allegedly admitted the attempted abduction Friday of a girl from nearby Middleton, Wis. Howes surrendered Saturday night to a traffic patrolman who was a friend of the family. Sheriff Fred Goff said Sunday night Howes was questioned by FBI agents, apparently in the case of Maria Ridulph, 7, who vanished from her Sycamore, 111., home Dec. 3. Maria was last seen playing with a young man who offered her a piggy-back ride. Federal agents would not reveal the results of their questioning, but an agent in the Milwaukee FBI office said federal officers want to question Howes further. Authorities said Howes confessed he talked the girl into climbing into the trunk of his car, slamming it shut and driving her about a mile. The quick-thinking girl, whose identity was not revealed, sprung the trunk lock from the inside and jumped out when Howe's car stopped for traffic in a Middleton shopping center. Goff said Howes, a spotter in a laundry, had no previous criminal record and comes from a "respectable" Madison family. The sheriff quoted Howes as .saying "I don't know why I did -it." At Sycamore, the search for Maria, believed kidnaped and slain, turned to nearby waterways Sunday with the aid of 20 men from a fire department rescue squad. Mild weather in northern Illinois melted ice from small lakes and streams in the area, enabling searchers from the Ottawa, 111., fire department to look for her body by boat.

If all the rain that fell on Logansport last week had been snow, the city would be digging out of one of the worst snowfalls in recent years. Weathermen say that on the average, one inch of rain is equal to ten inches of snow. The ratio varies somewhat, depending on whether the snow is wet or dry. At any rate, more than too inches of rain fell on the city during the week and that amount could have in-ade about 20 inches of snow had the weather been colder. Monday will be mostly cloudy, warm and . windy, with possible light showers this evening. The high temperature will be in the 50s and the low Monday night will be near 30. Tuesday will be fair and colder, with the high temperature in the 40s. Turkey-macaroni Salad NEW YORK — Leftover turkey and macaroni combine to make a different salad.
