Mundt, R., S. D., said today he will ask the Senate's "five percent" subcommittee to look into reports that MaJ. Gen. Harry H. Vaughan in 1946 tried to intercede with the Agriculture Department about rationing of grain for distillers. President Truman's military aide was said to have telephoned an Agriculture Department official to complain about an order tightening up on supplies of grain for distilling. Vaughan, Recording to an Informed government source, complained that the White House was not informed in advance that Clinton P. Anderson, then secretary of agriculture and now a new Mexico senator, was going to tighten the grain restrictions. Aide Identified The same source disclosed thct some White House official earlier had tried to find out whether the grain rationing restrictions were going to be changed. The caller was told, it was related, that such a decision would depend on the general grain situation. Anderson later issued an order tightening the controls. Vaughan's call reportedly came soon after that The Agriculture Department &1UC JUtrilUUlCU iiaiaau Koenig, then administrative assistant to Anderson. Koenig is in Puerto Rico and was not available for comment Earlier testimony has pictured Vaughan as interceding with the Agriculture Department in an other case. Witnesses said he once sought relief for a New Jersey molasses maker whose syrup allotment had been shut off for "wilful" violation of sugar rationing rules. Full Probe Asked Vaughan's name has cropped up irequentiy m the suocommit tee's investigation of Washing ton's so-called "influence Indus try." in which some business men's representatives here take Ave percent as their fee lor land ing government contracts. "This appears to be another Incident involving General Vaughan in an effort to exert pressure," said Mundt, a member of the investigating group, "in this case involving diversion of grain for distilling. Mundt said he would ask the committee to "make a full inves -ligation and to disclose all the details available." Official spokesmen for the committee declined to discuss the jaiesi vaugnan report. , iney would not confirm that it would be investigated. Subcommittee Chairman Hoey, D., N. C, meantime wired John A. Passler, Kansas City, Mo., ap pliance dealer, that he sees noth ing wrong in Passler's plan to pive Prpsidpnt Truman a tele- viciAn et M- Vi 1 p iemo at T n rl . Tjoiwil m; v aw alia iivruiv. hi pendence, Mo. Gifts 'Magnified' disclosure of deep freezer gifts to Vaughan, Mrs. Truman and others has been magnified out of all proportion to its importance." , He said testimony on the incident would be completed next week, when Vaughan is ex pected to testify. The air force said it would turn over to the subcommittee full records on a 1945 flight to Paris by John Maragon and two associates on an army air transport command plane. The subcommittee wants to know who helped Vaughan's friend Mara gon and two other representa tives of a Chicago perfume oil manufacturer get to Europe so soon alter V-E Day. It was the perfume firm that footed the bill for the deep freeze units. - Vv J I 1 GEORGE HICKMAN Police Seize Two In Fast Drive on Bad Check Ring A bogus check ring, headed by a parolee who has served terms in three state prisons for passing worthless checks, went on the rocks last night with arrests in Camden and Atlantic City. One man was seized by Cam den police yesterday as he at tempted to cash a Dogus cnecK in an Acme market, while the sec ond suspect and alleged leader, was arrested as he drove a rented automobile to his apartment in Atlantic City. The suspect held here gave his name as William J. Morris, 20, and his address as 2014 Pacific avenue, Atlantic City. The alleged leader seized in Atlantic City is George Jlickman, 44, re leased last June from the State Prison in Trenton for a bogus check passing spree in Camden a dozen years ago. Detectives Ira Hall and John Houston brought Hickman back to Camden from Atlantic City. They said he is being held under investigation pending a hearing Monday before Ponce Judge Di Mona on a charge oi passing worthless checks. Baggageman Blamed For Crash of Trains Canaan, N. H., Aug. 20 (UP) The Boston & Maine Railroad suspended a baggageman today whose blunder in throwing a . twitch was blamed for a headon collision of two express trains! yesterday, in which 50 persons' were injured and scores shaken. James J. Seymour, of Hillsboro, baggageman on the southBound "Ambassador," was suspended pending completion of an investigation of the crash, A three-way inquiry by the railroad, the Interstate Commerce Commission and the New Hampshire Public Service Commission will be held at Concord, N. H., probably within a week. The investigation will not be public but the ICC will issue a report at its conclusion, a railroad spokesman said. Army to Aid VFW Salute Truman Offers $78 Check Yesterday afternoon, according to Detective Frank Crawford, Morris presented a check in the amount of $78.05 to Ellis Myron, manager of an Acme market r.t 2632 Federal street, and asked that it be cashed. Police said that Myroff became suspicious of the check and re fused to cash, it. They said that Morris left, saying he would return later. After Morris departed, Myroff reported the incident to Patrolman Russell Young, who was on patrol duty on Federal street Sensing that Morris might try the same ruse at another store, Young walked with Myroff to the Food Fair market at 2718 Federal street. He saw Morris leav ing the store. After Morris ignored his warning to halt, Young fired a shot in the air. Morris stopped running and surrendered at Twenty-ninth and Mickle streets. Two Checks Cashed After questioning the suspect at police headquarters, Detective trawlord said Morris earlier in the day had cashed two other worthless checks in the same amount one at the Baltimore market and the other at an Acme market. The checks, Crawford reported, were those of a purported business firm and were written so as to appear as payroll vouchers. During the interrogation of Morris, according to Crawford, he implicated Hickman, revealing, among other things, that the parolee had rented an automo bile from the General Automo bile Rental Agency here earlier in the day. He also supplied the detective, with Hickman's Atlan tic City address. Printing Machine Seized As a result of this information, Crawford broadcast a state-wide teletype alarm for Hickman. Atlantic City police were on hand at 28 South Michigan avenue last night when Hickman, in the rented car, arrived at his home. In the back of Hickman's machine, Atlantic City police reported, they found a portable printing machine. This, Detective Crawford said, probably was used to print the names of bogus busk ness firms'on the face of checks. Hickman, formerly of Wil-liamstown, was sentenced by Judge Palese here in April of last year to one to two years for a check cashing spree in 19J7. Jailed in West Between 1937 and 1948, when he was returned here from Fort Madison, Iowa, to face the 1937 indictment, Hickman had served time in both Oklahoma and Iowa for passing worthless checks, police said. All of the checks Hickman passed here in 1937 were signed with the name oi the RCA pay 70 More Arrests Due in Big Dope Smuggling Ring C-C V u a New York, Aug. 20 tUP) Federal authorities said today that 70 more arrests would be made to clean up a $5,000,000 a year smuggling ring whose illicit trade in cocaine aided an abortive Peruvian revolution and resulted in United Nations action. IT. S, Commissioner Edward McDonald said most of those in volved were seamen and longshoremen... who aided Eduardo Balarezo, a 48-year-old ship steward, smuggle 110 pounds of pure cocaine into this country monthly. He said the operation was the largest in the history of tWe federal narcotics bureau. Balarezo of North Great River, N. Y., was seized by narcotics agents Thursday night as he pre pared to sail lor Italy aboard- the La Guardia on which he had been employed since May. He was charged with conspiring to smug gle ana transport narcoucs and held in $100,000 bail. Luciano Involved Assistant U. S. Attorney Joseph P. Martin said Balarezo is suspected of extending his smuggling operations toItaly with the aid of Charles "Lucky" Luciano, exiled New York vice king. Martin said Balarezo, a natural ized U. S. citizen from Peru, had been forced to seek new markets for cocaine-because his lucrative three-year trade resulted in gov ernment restrictions here and in Peru. He said Balarezo may have become Luciano's agent to bring heroin to the United States. ' ' Capt. Alfonso Mier y Teran, chief of the Peruvian department of investigation, who has been aiding narcotics agents, said about 80 persons including Ealar-eza's wife Carmen, have been arrested in Peru in connection with the smuggling ring. He said Mrs. Balareza superintended gathering and shipping the narcotics to her husDanci. Financed Coup Mier said the Balarezas went to Peru last year with Victor Haya de la Torre, leader of the outlawed people's party, and supplied him with arms and $60,-000 cash for his attempted coup in October. De la Torre had promised Balareza the post of director of customs, Mier said. Federal authorities said the Peruvian government discovered Balareza held controlling - interest in a number of illicit cocaine factories when it recently closed down the country's cocaine industry last year. The government's action was part of a United Nations compromise to avert a trade crisis in Peru. Contraptions Not Flying Saucer : Airmen Say 2 Devices in Old Barn Have No Relation to Alleged Discs Wage Tax (Continued from Pate Onp). since Thursday afternoon, when she received the single telephone call conventionally allowed those arrested, "George always said he would carry his case to the Supreme Court, if he were arrested on this wage tax business," Mrs. Ross said. "He doesn't see why a man living in Jersey-should pay Philadelphia's bills . Gives Illustrations Washington, Aug. 20 (UP) After thinking it over for a day, the air force decided today that two strange old craft found in a Maryland barn "have absolutely no connection with the reported phenomena of flying saucers." Several official spokesmen for the air force had hemmed and hawed about the discovery since the experimental craft were found. One spokesman had said they Were - a'definite prototype" of the flying-saucer. But another later totecKthal down considerably. Then shortly after noon today, the air force released this bare statement: "The air force states that the two experimental aircraft found near Baltimore yesterday have absolutely no connection with the reported phenomena of the flying saucers." By referring to the "reported phenomena of flying saucers" the air force again stated its skeptical attitude as to whether there really ever have been any such things. The eccentric inventor of the abandoned experimental aircraft, which were rediscovered yesterday, , was Jonathan E. Caldwell. He disappeared from Maryland nine years ago. No one has been able to discover where he went or whether he is still alive. The only remote possibility of! a connection between inventor Caldwell and reports of flying saucers had been based on the theory that he might have gone to some other part of the country and built bigger and successful-flying planes. A good many officers found it difficult to believe that he could have done that without coming to public attention during the periodic excitement over "flying saucers" in the past two years. But they would like to find out what happened to Caldwell after he left Maryland and to talk to him, if he is still alive. Caldwell left the Maryland farm hastily nine years ago after getting into financial troubles with the state. He took with him his wife and son. Speaking of the old craft built by Caldwell, an air force spokes man said: "From the round configura tions of the two craft they would resemble the reports of flying saucers If the craft ever flew. Air Force Stumped For two years air force Investi gators have been running down clues from coast to. coast on re ports of flying saucers being seen. The air force in the main j has taken a skeptical attitude toward the reports. Its last official report said it just didn't j have conclusive evidence that! they either did or didn't exist. Some of the flying saucers have been reported seen from the air, but traveling at, such high speed to make pursuit impossible. One military pilot crashed to his death, reportedly while chasing a flying saucer. One of the craft found in the Maryland barn reportedly flew briefly around 1939. It was said to have gotten only 75 feet in the air. If it did, the air force said it would not have flown much faster than 100 miles an hour. Looked like Tub , One ship . resembled a heli- about 16 feet in diameter. The de- j vice resembled two saucers revolving top to top. Small rotor blades jutted from between the two saucers. The other craft, named the "rotoplane," looked like a plywood tub about 14 feet in diameter. The pilot sat in the middle. The engine was in the tub Around top and bottom rims of the tub were four-bladed propellers which revolved in opposite directions. The helicopter-type was reported by John W. Ganz, a mechanic to have flown briefly. Ganz said he helped Caldwell build the plane in 1935 and 1936. Caldwell disappeared nine years- after - getting in trouble with Maryland state authorities who thought his money-raising activities as unconventional as his inventions. Stock Sales Halted The authorities had ordered him to stop selling any more stock in his enterprise, "Gray Goose Airways Inc." Previously, he had been ordered to stop Belling stock in New Jersey and New York. Caldwell, who would be about 70 today, has not been heard of since. Air force investigators conceded he could have moved to some other part of the country - nd built improved models of the strange craft. They said it was obvious that neither of the two craft found yesterday had flown recently. Acting on a tip, air force men and Maryland state police searched a good-sized farm area near Glen Burnie before finding the right shed, which apparently had been abandoned for years. 9-Cylinder Engine One of the planes resembled a crude helicopter, surmounted by a 16-foot device like a double saucer, covered with airplane cloth. Its fuselage, which bore no wings, contained a nine cylinder radial engine 'The naw vard doesn't allow copter. But instead of rotor ine navy yara aoesn i anow . . . ,. . , , , . H.virA The other ship looked like a big plywood tub, 14' feet in diameter. Around top and bottom rims were four-bladed propellers which were geared to turn in op posite directions. The engine was in the tub. John W. Ganz, chief repairman at the Glen Burnie airport, said he was surprised at the uproar over the discovery. He told the investigators he helped Caldwell build the two, machines in the mid-1930's. Ganz said the helicopter-type craft was successfully test-hopped in 1936 or 1937. If the other ship ever got off the ground, he did not know about it. Believed Too Heavy Air force experts said it was possible the helicopter-type plane got into the air. But they were confident the tub-like ship never did. It was too heavy, they said. And they said it was unlikely either ship ever made a "success ful flight." Ganz was reported to have told the investigators that Caldwell made a small model of the tublike plane, powered with a one-fourth horsepower motor, which flew. Ganz said he last saw Caldwell about 1939, when he left the neighborhood. The mechanic had no idea where the inventor might be now. State police said, they had not been able' to trace his 2 Deaths ProBed As Family Feuds: Suspect Poison - JacksonvilleIll.. Aue. 20 (UP) An entire farm familv was under suspicion of murder" to day-after two members died of suspected arsenic poisonine and a third became dangerously sick. .Bernard Bruening, 24, was admitted to. Passavant hospital in critical condition yesterday. His wife, Marie, 24, had died there just 24 hours earlier. Bernard s brother. Marvin. 20. died July 1 after he became ill May 23. A coroner's jury ruled of ficialljr that his death was due to arsenic poison. In each case, authorities said. the victims suffered from sore throats and burning sensations in their mouths, usual symptoms of arsenic poisoning. All Under Suspicion Sheriff Ralph Bourn said he had "started a full-scale investigation of this thing to find out what's at the bottom of it." "As far as we are concerned." he said, "the whole family is liv ing under suspicion of murder until we get It cleared up." Surviving members of the family live on various farms near here. Bourn said that specimens from Mrs. Bruening's vital organs had been sent to Washing ton for examination by the FBI to determine whether arsenic was present., All of the deaths and illnesses in the family occurred since members were split last December by a violent quarrel between John Bruening, 52, father of the young men, and Mrs. Leah Bruening, their mother, Bourn, said. ' "The boys bought a tractor," the sheriff said. "Their had said they paid too much for it. Split Into Factions "Their mother sided with the boys and the old man got sorta rough with her. The boys got tough with him and he left." Bruening moved in with a daughter, Mrs. Malba Stewart, who had sided with him in the squabble. The boys stayed with their mother at the farmstead near Chapin, 12 miles northwest of here, even though she had filed for divorce against the father and the farm was divided at a partition sale. In the sale, Bruening bid against his wife. He won possession of 40 acres. Another 60 acres went to his brother-in-law, Volney Chappell. Sheriff Bourn said he had "found arsenic on all of the farms, but that didn't mean much, because most farmers have a supply of the poison for various purposes. We have no definite proof that any of the family were poi soned except Marvin," he said. "But we are investigating every possible angle to clear the whole thing up. : - : them to collect a cigarette tax. None of the other state or city taxes paid outside the navy yard seem to apply to workers there.

Charles Scragg, Mrs. Ross brother, who lives at 514 Ridge- way street, echoed the admoni tion that his sister had been given. "George always told me," said Scragg, "that if he was arrested, for this wage tax business, to do nothing. He said he was going to fight it out right up to the highest court."

At the Moyamensing prison in Philadelphia, Capt.

G iven a lift from Baltimore, three soldiers early today caused the arrest of their benefactors on a charge of larceny of the automobile. One of the soldiers, all of whom are stationed at camps in Virginia, stopped in a restaurant at Crown Point road and Chestnut street and told attendant Fred Willard, 342 Summit ave nue, he believed the two youths who had brought them from the south had stolen the car in which! they had been riding. I Willard telephoned Patrolman Joseph Richman and the police-1 man found the three soldiers walking along Crown Point road some distance from the restaurant. After talking with the soldiers, Richman overtook two youths walking in the same direction. They were identified by the soldiers as their traveling companions. The car was abandoned nearby. The civilians identified themselves as Jimmv Cord, 20, and Jimmy Richards' 19, both of 1415 North Hanover street, Baltimore.
