Pocahontas Man Killed In Accident B U C K E Y E -A 22-year-old man died in this Pocahontas County community Saturday when his car left the road while traveling north on U.S. 219 and struck a tree head-on, state po lice said. Cpl. K. J. Bowman identified the dead man as Frank H Weatherholt Jr. of Marlinton in Pocahontas County. Authorities said Weatherholt was traveling at such a high speed that the impact with the tree practically tore his car in half. The accident occurred at approximately 6:15 a.m., Bowman said. The Pocahontas County sheriff's department aided Bowman in the investigation. Weatherholt was an employe of Hercules Co. of Covington Va. Robert Welch wrote a book, "The Life of John Birch," which :old how an American Baptist Missionary who had turned in- ;elligence officer in China dur- ng World War II became the irst casualty of World War III -the war against Communism. Birch was killed by Chinese Communist soldiers 10 days after Japan's surrender on Aug. 14, 1945. In- 1958, Welch organized the John Birch Society, and he remains its leader. Several state governors have proclaimed John Birch Day on the late Captain's birthday, and Birch's parents participate in the society's activities. When the organization was flushed into public view in 1961, most of the publicity cen tered on Welch's charge tha President Eisenhower was a "dedicated, conscious agent o the Communist conspiracy," bu there was also a little specula tion about who Capt. John Birch really was. A few authorities suggests that he had provoked his own death but the government refused to make public an officia version. charge pressed Welch injected the that the Washington sup- news of Birch's ington, D.C., Miss Ruth L.

Friends may call TV Station Knocked Out Bv Storm HUNTINGTON--An electrical storm abruptly ended the first portion of the telecast of the WHTN-TV Saturday night less than half an hour after it had begun. An engineer in the station's control room said lightning Hospital after an extended illness. Surviving: husband, Howard S.; daughters, Mrs. Helen Campbell, Mrs. James White, Mrs. struck the transmitter at Barker's Ridge at 8:26 p.m. The station's switchboard and that of the Gazette were flooded with calls from viewers requesting an explanation. The engineer said he did not know whether or not the film would be shown at a later date. A power company employe said the electrical storm in the Milton area had knocked down several power lines there in addition to de-energizing one phase of the television transmitter. Although they were able to repair other lines, the power company did not know how long it would take to repair the station's equipment. The U.S. Weather Service at Charleston's Kanawha Airport said occasional thundershowers were forecast for the Charleston-Huntington area through midnight Saturday. In addition, a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon and evening was predicted. The rain also drowned out a at a farm near Lesage in Cabell County. Some of the participants were reported stranded when a small bridge was washed out. ieath because of Communist in- luence. This was part of his 'grand conspiracy" theme, and lis basic speech during the ear- y months of 1962 included this passage: "With his death and in his death the battle lines were drawn, in a struggle from which either Communism or Christian-style civilization must emerge with one completely triumphant and the other completely destroyed. Partly for these reasons, but even more because John Birch--in all of his short but outstanding career--so typified the best of America, we have named our organization in his memory." A 16-page tabloid distributed by the society in 1965 through millions of Sunday newspapers used a color photograph ot Birch in uniform on the cover and opened with two pages depicting him as a martyr to the causes of the United States and Christianity. Included in the publication was a picture of his Flag-draped casket. Requests for Army records on the circumstances of Capt Birch's death were refused al the time on the grounds that they were classified "secret.' However, persistent efforts by Samuel J. Archibald, the director of the Washington office of Freedom of Information Center at the University of Missouri, have resulted in declassification of the documents after nearly 27 years. About 50 pages of official re- 3orts make it clear that Capt. Birch, whose record had been very good, provoked a group of hinese Communist soldiers into killing him and almost killing his Chinese adjutant, a Lt. Tung, by being demanding, threatening and arrogant. The reports go into great detail about the mission Birch was leading at the time of his death NINE DAYS after Japan's surrender, Capt. Birch was assigned to lead a small group of U. S. Chinese and Korean personnel to Suchow in the interior of China to collect Japanese files and check the airport for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Although the war was supposedly over, this territory was occupied by Japanese and their puppets and there was still hostility. Nationalist forces under Ge- mumsts and neralissimo Chiang Kai-shek toward them had been fighting the Japanese, as had Communist Chinese forces under Mao Tse-tung and Chou En-lai. Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer, commander of U.S. forces in China, was also chief of staff to Chiang, and the United States had an observer group at Communist headquarters in Yenan. The two Chinese forces were not cooperating but, nevertheless, both were supposed to know the location of American missions. In this case they didn't, because the area was occupied by the Japanese. The Birch group found the Japanese cooperative the first day of the mission, but was warned of danger if it proceeded into the Communist area. Despite the warning, Birch ledjjYLi- his group forward, and they encountered some Communist troops. Birch, who was fluent in Chinese, was allowed to pass, hands-on-hip stance and telling one of the Chinese: "Well! So you want to disarm us. At present the Americans have liberated the whole world, and you want to stop us and disarm us. Are you bandits?" By this time, the Birch party was surrounded by 60 to 70 armed Chinese. After some delay, they told the party it could proceed, but Birch refused to be satisfied until taken to the com manding officer. When a Communist soldier started to leac them back where they had just been, Birch grabbed him at the back of the collar and said: "After all, what are you people? If I say bandits, you don't have the appearance of bandits. You are worse than bandits." A short distance farther, the leader of about 20 armed Com' munists ordered his men to load their guns and disarm Birch. Tung tried to intervene again, but was shot. He lost consciousness after hearing another shot and hearing Birch say he was hit in the leg and could not walk. A third shot apparently killed Birch, and he was bayo- netted as well. Both men were left for dead, but Tung was rescued and returned to an American base ,where he was interrogated at length. He lost an eye and a leg. The others in the Birch group were d e t a i n e d nearly two months, and reported later that they were treated fairly well. Three of the Americans made out a joint report which substantiated Tung's, especially as to Birch's attitude and the warnings he had been given. Birch's body was recovered from a shallow grave, and after Catholic service was buried with military honors on a hillside near Suchow. * * * A 10-PAGE report on the incident, submitted to Gen. Wedemeyer by the judge advocate 'or the theater and dated Nov. 13, 1945, relied substantially on :he eyewitness accounts by Lt. Tung. It concluded that "although Capt. Birch's conduc immediately prior to his death indicated a lack of good judg ment and failure to take proper precautions in a dangerous situ ation, nevertheless the actions :aken by the Chinese Communist army personnel fell short of according the rights and privi eges due even to enemy prisoners of war and constituted murder/' It added: "The shooting vas done maliciously. . . The lulling was completely without ustification." With that conclusion, however, as the following statement: "Since the presence of the Birch party in the area had not been announced to the Commu- ists, Nationalists on the Yenan Observer Group (YOG). . . and because the Communists were still in battle action, it was entirely proper for them to hold Birch and Tung until satisfied that they were friendly groups. "Further, in view of Birch's attitude and actions, the Communists were to a degree properly resentful at being termed 'bandits' and were not inclined to be immediately helpful." The report also concluded: "From Lt. Tung's testimony, it seems clear that Birch was in no mood to treat with the Com- meyer reminded the generalissimo of the request and received a message that the Nationalists had repeatedly asked the communists for help in court-mar- tialing those responsible "but had received no response. However, the message went on that the matter was being taken up with Chou En-lai. That was March 15, 1940, three years Mao drove before Chou Chiang (and and the United States) out of China. About 10 years later. Wedemeyer wrote an article for Robert Welch's new journal, "One Car Crash Injures Girl A 15-year-old girl was seriously injured in a car accident near Elk Two-Mile Saturday, a spokesman for Charleston General Hospital said. Gina Michelle Anania, of 1027 Valley Dr., was admitted late Saturday with multiple face injuries, the spokesman said. Two others in the car, 14- year-old Katherin Dale Givdice, of 843 Maple Rd., and 17-year- old Donald C.

Rita Jones was picked up at the Tear Drop Club, 614M- Brooks St., and booked on a charge of illegal sale of tax-paid whiskey.

"I knew John Birch as a captain in China," he said. "He provoked the attack on himself; he was arrogant. I warned Welch not to make a hero of Birch. That's why I quit. . . I think Welch is a dedicated, fine American, but he lacks good judgement."

M that his actions were belligerent and contemptuous." Gen. Wedemeyer wrote Aug. .11 to Mao Tsc-Tung about the incident, expressing gratitude for past cooperation and asking for a prompt investigation and report. A reply from Yen- an asserted that Birch and Tung had approached from the cnemy,'s direction, had cursed the Communists who challenged them, and were shot in self-defense. Wedemeyer also wrote Chiang Kai-shek, asking for help in bringing the perpetrators to justice.
