PAOB BIGHT BLTTHBTILLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEWi EATURPAT, MARCH It. House Bill to Guard Army Reserves from Connection with UMT By RUSSELL BRINES WASHINGTON (AP) — A House subcommittee has taken steps designed to prevent the administration's military reserves plan from becoming a seedbed for universal military training. Working on a Pentagon bill to strengthen the reserves, a House Armed Services subcommittee yesterday made tentative changes which Chairman Brooks (D-La) said show "conclusively it is not a universal military training measure." The group has not yet acted finally. Brooks said the bill still is open to amendment. He announced Plane Damage Is Termed Sabotage BIRMINGHAM. Ala. 10—Damage to government planes being modified at the Hayes Aircraft Corp. plant was called "a serious case of sabotage" by a high company of- Vital flying surfaces of air force transport planes — the large C119 Boxcars and the smaller B25 aircraft — were found to have been tampered with, the company reported. The extent of the damage was not revealed. The damage was discovered yesterday, and FBI, Air Force and company agents began an immediate investigation. "Such sabotage endangers the lives of people who fly these airplanes," said Harry Rowland, president of Hayes. He labeled the reported damage "a serious case of sabotage." The company is negotiating a new contract with the United Automobile and Aircraft Workers Union, which has notified the firm it will terminate its agreement March 27 unless a new agreement is reached. Union leaders disclaimed any responsibility for the alleged sabotage. The union said it had,offered to aid in investigating the alleged sabotage. hearings will open Monday to get the views of Pentagon, National Guard and Reserve Officer spokesmen on the revised proposals. Minimum Amount In the main, the subcommittee changes dealt with Pentagon proposals to: Recruit: corps of youths under 19 for six months of intentive training to be followed by a hitch in the reserves; and use compulsion for the first time in getting reservists to keep up their required training. Brooks said the subcommittee version would provide "the minimum amount of compulsion." The administration bill spelled out no specific annual quota for the special corps of under-19 trainees. It was this aspect that critics contended could be a loophole through which the program could be expanded into UMT. 250,000 Maximum To seal such a passible loophole, the subcommittee specified a minimum of 100,000 and a maximum of 250,000 such trainees annually. Pentagon spokesmen had said they were thinking in terms of 100,000 a year. The House group also provided that service in such a corps should be voluntary. It thus rejected a Pentagon proposal to permit drafting trainees if there were not enough volunteers. The regular draft would continue in effect for most youths between the ages of 18& and 26. Old Gold Coins Found on Farm ENGLAND, Ark. W)—Two Negro farm tenants have uncovered $600 In gold coins on the grounds of an abandoned pro-Civil War plantation home near here. The pot full of gold—30 United States $20 gold coins—was found on land now owned by J. R. Webb. Webb said he guessed the former owner of the plantation had hidden the money to keep federal soldiers from capturing It. Red Fishermen Are Returned SINGAPORE tJPt — The British liner Caronia arrived in Singapore today with five shipwrecked Chinese fishermen picked up off Malaya. They were survivors of a group of eight fishermen whose vessel sank in a storm off the Malayan port of Penang a week ago. They had clung to rafts until the Caronia spotted them Friday. Senate Votes Inquiry Money WASHINGTON (£>)—The Senate last night voted more than a million dollars for 10 special inquiries —but not before Sen. Ellender D-La, had charged Sen. Kefauver D-Tenn with hoping for "plenty of advertising" hit of a juvenile delinquency investigation lie heads. Ellender challenged Kefauver's request for $154,000. saying that the study "will result in pure wasts." Sen. Lfinger R-ND leaped into the fray, telling Ellender the Louisiana senator never worried about voting money "for hogs, cattle, sheep and the hoof and mouth disease." Ellender also forced a $50,000 cut in a $250,000 request for an antitrust probe, and a $5,000 reduction in a fund to look in to federal prison conditions.

Red China Bound Tanker Passes Ceylon WASHINGTON m — Arkansas will need more than one billion dollars for highway construction during the next 10 years, the Bureau of Public Roads says. The bureau s.tid in a report released yesterday that the state will be able to provide only $770.436.000. ' leaving the federal government to provide 315 million dollars for the next 10 years. ; COLOMBO, Ceylon WV- The Finnish tanker Aruba, making 100 miles a day in the Indian Ocean with a cargo of jet fuel for Communist China, passed 70 miles off the south coast of Ceylon today. A chartered plane carried press photographers over the ship. Crewmen took off caps and vests and waved, The Aruba, carrying 13.000 tons of jet fuel, Was instructed yesterday by her owners to keep going, to avoid ports and — if she must stop for any reason — to wait in international waters until fresh orders are received. Seamen's union spokesmen in Helsinki said Wednesday, the crew would strike if ordered to take the Aruba beyond Singapore. Twice Conned Corn RUBY, S. C. W» — Because of the drought last summer and last fall, a cannery here had to buy canned corn, uncan it, mix it with its own ingredients and recan the mixture. UTIEY (Continued from Page Vt ly ajar so as to give him a view of the front door. A few minutes later Utley and the woman arrived. Utley parked his late model Cadillac in front of the liquor store. Upon entering he removed a pistol from his belt and placed it on a shelf under the counter in the cmity of the cash register. The woman followed Utley into the liquor store. Apparently sensing something was up, Utley turned toward the back door when he arose to an upright position and saw the white man level the shotgun. He lunged at the man, striking the shotgun enough to deflect the blast. However, from all indieations 1 buck shot pellets from the blasl struck Utley in the hand and arm. The remainder of the shot tore through a Wall counter and into a neon sign in the room. Hit Again While Utley frantically tried to reach him, the white man fired another blast from the shotgun. This blast struck Utley in the face At this point the Negro arose from his hiding place and began firing at Utley with the pistol. Utley then centered* his attention on the Negro and at one time, very nearly caught him. But one of, the pistol slugs struck him in the neck and he fell to the floor dead. The gunmen then walked over to the dead man, took his car keys from his pocket, ordered Robinson to accompany them and left in Utley's car. Robinson, who suffered frozen feet while serving with the Army during World War IT, was ordered to lie on the floor in the back of the car while the gunmen fled. At a spot a short distance from Cooler, the gunmen stopped the car and ordered Robinson out. They then proceeded toward Cooter. Utley's car was found abandoned near Cooler and the men apparently escaped in a waiting automobile. J. R. Kinningham of the German Funeral Home in Steele, where Utley's body was taken following the shooting, told the Courier News yesterday that, Utley was shot once in the face by the buckshot blast from the shotgun and once in the neck by a slug from the pistol. Mr. Kinningham said that the pistol slug ranged downward and was removed "just beneath the skin" near the lower center of his back. However, he stated that the slug removed from Utley's body was a .45 calibre bullet. John German, owner of the funeral home, said that in his opinion, the pistol slug killed Utley and not the shotgun blast. Gun Found A shotgun, believed to be the one used in the killing-, and the keys to Utley's late model Cadillac, were found a short distance from the spot where the car was abandoned, officers said.

Every Night SEATTLE (#)—Communist party big shots frown on using flower pots for window signals (the cops are wise) but they recommend the use of onion juice and water for writing: secret messages. This and a lot of other cloak and dagger information , wai gleaned from a handbook which the House Un-American Activities subcommittee obtained from a witness yesterday. The manual, part of a collection of hundreds of documents stuffed into four cartons, was supplied by Eugene Dennett, steelworkers and former Communist official testifying at hearings the subcommittee is conducting here. ignored Orders Dennett, had the records because he ignored orders from the party to destroy them when they read him out of membership in 1947 for "devintionist Trotskyism." Frank S. Tavenner Jr., committee counsel, said the records are the most voluminous ever turned over to the committee by a former Communist. He said the handbook, written by B. Vassiliev, a former comin- tern strategist, goes much more into detail of Communist party mechanics and "is much plainer in its purposes" than anything in to be missing, officers have about ruled out robbery as a possible motive. At the Steele funeral home, Mr. Kinninkham, who said he received the call to pick up Utley's body around 2 a.m., said the dead man was still wearing a diamond stick pin when he picked up the body. 'When I arrived at the liquor store, Mr. Vickrey and officers were already there. They searched the body and found two bundles of money, one in his shirt pocket and one in his pants pocket," Mr, Kinningham said. However, he stated, he did not see a billfold but quickly added, That doesn't mean it was missing." The shotgun reportedly was found by Louis Lester who turned it over to Paul A. Moore. It has been sent to Jefferson City for examination by the state's criminology laboratory there. Four expended cartridges from s .38 caliber .pistol were found In the liquor store, officers said. A description of the men as given by witnesses had the Negro as being short, about 5-7, and heavy, about 215 pounds. The white man, they said, was well-dressed, wore a light tan suit and a light tan trench coat. Both were reported to be about 30 years old. The Negro was said to have been wearing a denim jacket and a cap. the extensive files of the commit* tee. Not only were the cops wise to the flower pots, Vassiliev wrote, they were even doublecrossing the Communists by putting pots in the windows themselves. Comrades were instructed to use "the latest inventions of chemistry" in writing: messages not intended for bourgeois eyes. But If the chemicals weren't handy, mix onion juice and water, they were advised. Bad Meeting Place Cafes also were looked upon as bad places for meetings. "There always are spies In cafes and in countless numbers and it is .difficult to get rid of them." An ordinary, indistinctive flat was recommended, instead. Passwords for getting into that flat were mandatory and of varying complexity as an official's rank increased. Rank and file members got through the door with simple passwords. District workers had to learn a more complicated routine. And central workers, they really had to know the answers. A member who could ask and respond to three questions could be "addressed with full frankness." Codes were specified, too ranging from ordinary word juggling to real mysterious stuff about book pages and poetry. For instance, "auntie" was a printing press and "sugar" was type. If "auntie asks without fail to send her 2 pounds of sugar," you knew "we need 20 pounds of type for the printing press." There were instructions for infiltration of unions, industrial enterprises and professions like law, medicine, education and writing. 1924 Presidential Candidate III CHARLESTON. S. C. Lfl — John W. Davis, 81, presidential candidate in 1924, was reported in serious condition yesterday in a hospital here. Hospital officials refused to say what Davis' Illness is. It was reported that he is in a "serious" condition. Davis represented South Carolina last year before the United States Supreme Court in the school segregation case. In 1924 he ran for president against Calvin Coolidge.
