VTDKIESDAT, .TUNE 25, 1352 Attlee Accuses US of Imperiling Truce Talks by Staging Big Power Plant Raids BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS LONDON tPr—ciement R. Attlee today accused the United States of imperiling Korean u-uce talks and risking war with Red China. He said Britain should have had an opportunity before hand lo say whether it was "wise" to bomb North Korean power plants. Atllee, labor tie former prime minister, opened a debate in the House of Commons on the bombing. He said Britain had been "kepi in Ihe dark" on plans for the big raid, He observed: "In a matter of this kind, the British government was entitled to have the fullest information, They ought to have been allowed lo express an opinion as to whether this was wise."

Commodity And Stock Markets— New York Cotton rowed down lo the question' of which Red prisoners should be repatriated. "There is suddenly injected into Ihis an attack on these power stations." he said. "There may be some particular military reasons but the actual fact is Ihis is going to cause misery and distress to hundreds of thousands of civilians who are not in the fighting at all. It is bringing in conditions of total war lo these people. "I think this is a profound mistake in psychology and it is not the first mistake in psychology that has been made in tile course of these events. "I think it will exacerbate (irritate) feelings and lessen the chances of an armistice and may load us dangerously nearer to a general conflagration in the East. If that happens no one knows where it may stop." PACE FIVE Congress Men Ask Liquor Investigation July Oct. Dec. Mar.

Chelf is chairman and Keating is the ranking Republican member of the subcommittee, which yesterday heard a series of witnesses representing: independent liquor firms teslify they were subjected to high pressure tactics by the big four distillers—Schenley. Seagram, Matronal and Hiram Walker. Keating commented the testimony "sounds like the btg liquor companies were drunk svith xnver." Julian P. Van Wink!?, nrcsident! of the Stit?.el Welter Distillery of j Shively. Ky., and dean of Kentucky bourbon makers, testified he couldn't get /ire insurance for a while on liquor in his warehouses. He said Ihe reason was that Schenley had a "blanket" insurance contract covering !he warehouses although Schencly had no whiskey in them. "You mean they prevented you roin getting legitimate fire insurance on your own liquor in your own warehouses?" Chelf asked. "I guess that's it," Van Winkle said.
