MOKDAY, AUGUST 10, 1901 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS AFLCouncilThreatensOuster Of Waterfront Unions I«A mands (AP) — The AFL Executive Council held an ouster threat over Us crime- wa terfront workers union today at a showdown hearing on cleanup de- Joseph P. Ryan, lifetime president of the AFL International Longshoremen's Association, was expected to defend his 65,000-member organization from charges of harboring criminal elements and to claim the ILA already has launched its own purge. The AFL council, all-powerful *— -- - --- — - - - - -ruling agency of the 10 million ] member AFL, was reported lukewarm about the embattled union's purity plans and about to tick the , ILA out of the AFL. Th« ILA has been pleading for * chance to hold a series of trials to determine whether ILA leaders with criminal or racketeer backgrounds should continue at their jobs, but the AFL was reported skeptical of the plan as long as the 69-year-old Ryan, himself under Indictment for stealing union funds, Is kept at the union's helm. This is the first case Involving charges of union corruption within the AFL since George Meany won the AFL presidency, succeeding the 1st* William Green last fall. Meany reportedly is determined to make a lesson of the ILA for other AFL unions. ILA Rocked At any rate, the states of New York and New Jersey have enacted legislation to clean the East Coast waterfront of racketeers in a bi- Btate compact to license dock workers in the future. The legislation has Juft been approved by Congress. The ILA was rocked by revelations dug up by congressional investigating committees and the New York State Crime Commission that the New York and 'New Jersey docks situation was ruled by racketeers, many of ttiem in ILA ranks. The ILA a few weeks ago launched a move to drive Anthony (Tough Tony). Annstasia, who has been trying to become union czar of the Brooklyn docks, out of the union. But Anastasia talked tough and apparently scared the ILA cleanup forces out" of Brooklyn because they never have assumed power. This, plus Byan's continuing control, was expected to weigh heavily with the 15-mernber APL council, which after today's hearing with ILA officials will draft recommendations for the APL's coming St. Louis convention next month. The council's advice to conventions is usually followed. DON'T DRIBBLE—Blanche Foltz, a Pentagon secretary, displays a new item designed to keep the U. S. safe.

U. S. Marshall ADAIRSVrLLE. Ga. W)—Two federal prisoners who escaped with a guard as hostage after a deputy H. S. marshal was slain were large today despite a relentless around-the-clock search by a mammoth posse. More than 200 law officers used bloodhounds to comb a densely wooded, 25-square-mlle area slightly west of here and about 70 miles northwest of Atlanta. The vast search, which brought federal and state officers from throughout North Georgia Into the pine mountains, was launched Saturday after Marshal Sam E. Vaughn, 54, of Murfreesboro, Tenn., was shot five times and thrown from his car two miles south of Adairsville. The fugitives, Eugene Juelich, 25, of Butte, Mont., and Woodard Larson, 31, of St. Paul, Minn., were being transported from Nashville, Tenn. ,to the federal prison at Atlanta when the marshal was slain. They were given five-year sentences Thursday for transporting a stolen car across state lines. Vaughn father of 13 children—10 are still living—told a service station owner at Murfreesboro Saturday that the prisoners were "the toughest I have ever transported." He said they had given him trouble on the first leg of the trip. Juelich and Larson, who had been placed in solitary confinement at Nashville as trouble makers, wore leg irons and were handcuffed when they left Nashville. Accused with the pair in the auto case was blonde Joan Marie "VVen- berg, 18, of St. Paul. She is free in $3,000 bond and awaiting trial. The searchers believe that George Hightower, 34, of Nashvill, is still being held as a hostage by the pair. Hightower, eon of the turnkey at the Davidson County Nashville Jail, was helping Vaughn guard the prisoners.

Celler (D-NY) has urged that "one. good solid committee" of Congress handle all investigations of subversive activity, but Sen. Munnt (R-S1>» contends the Job is too big. Interviewed last night on an NBC television program, the two voiced divergent views also about the effect of congressional inquiries into subversion. Celler said putting all investigations of communism Into the hands of one committee would end duplication of effort, any intercommittee rivalry and would save money. But Mundt said such a committee would take up so much of the members' time they would neglect their other congressional tasks. He said some Communist activity had been uncovered "only because of the thor- S.fely Hint It is foolish and dangeroiu for a driver, motoring in i mountainous region, to throw hl3 macbtat out of gear and depend entirely on his brakes while traveling down grade. \ oughncss of a careful, repetitioui Investigation by a series of congressional committees," Quick Relief for HEADACHK NEURALGIA Ten STANBACK youn.H . . . tat- lets or powd.n . . . again* «y pr>paiatlon you're «T*f UMd.

TWELVE SUGGESTED STEPS AS A ' STEP TWO I "Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity." Many cf us had thrown away great opportunities because of conceit, disregard for authority, and blindness to our own limitations. Some of us said, "I'm not even sure I believe in God." It is so easy to become self-centered and then to become sensitive. Being sensitive, we are easily hurt and our personal problems multiply. We notice every little slight by other people. We become jealous. Our false pride leads to unkind feelings toward others. We are hard to get along with. We live within our own little world with ourselves as god and thus are out of harmony with the rest of the world. However, having finally despaired of our ability to be our own god, to save ourselves, we look to a power greater than all of us and immediately we become possessed by a new hope. Therefore, step two is the rallying point for all of us. Whether agnostic, athiest, or former believer, we can stand together on this step. True humility and an open mind can lead us to faith, and every AA Meeting Is an assurance that God will restore us to sanity if we rightly relate our- »«lves to Him.
