IL said he paid $6,883 taxes on reported income of 54,771 from 1946 through 1950, when the lota I should have been 5B3.3H and the taxes 514,328. If convicted, Bolich would face a maximum penalty of 25 years' imprisonment and a $50,000 fine- He was not reached for comment. Bolich was an unwilling witness earlier this year before a congressional subcommittee looking into tax scandals. He refused to answer any questions. Home An .VImilled Gift During the inquiry, Bolich emerged BS a man with $31.50 shirts, expensive cars and two luxuriously furnished homes—one of them, valued at 20,000, an admitted gift. Investigators revealed that, during the five-year period, 1946-50, Bolich spent 5115,000 when his government salary totaled only $52,000. Bolich refused to explain these or other matters when summoned last April before the House ways and means subcommittee investigating the revenue bureau. His claim of constitutional privilege to remain silent because of possible self-Incrimination brought him a tongue-lashing by Chairman King (D-Calif). King, asserting the testimony about BoHch's income and associations indicated ' 'unus- sual, if not suspicious" circumstances, told him: "Every American has a right to he disappointed with the failure of a man of your ability and experience, Mr. Bolich." Started in 1923 Bolich started his career in the internal revenue service in 1923, at 'the age of 22, as n deputy to then revenue collector Carl P. Routzahn in Cleveland. Twenty years later his continuing association with Routzahn— now a department store operator in Mansfield, Ohio—was an intriguing, and never fully explained, feature of the King committee's inquiry into Bnlich's affairs. Bolich moved rapidly up the scale to assume his first supervisory job at the age of 30 as internal revenue agent in charge at Philadelphia in 1930. After a number of other positions, he was appointed special revenue agent in charge at New York in 1946. Two years later—in September, 1948—he became assistant revenue commissioner. He stayed in the No. 2 tax post until he asked to be relieved in September, 1951—after the King committee investigation was under way. He resigned two months later. The committee heard testimony from many sources that Bolich ordered a tax fraud case dropped against the New York dress firm of Pattullo Modes after field agents sent it to Washington for prose cution, Case of the "Dutchman" It was in connection with this case that investigators linked Bolich with Henry W. Grunewald, the silent and mysterious "Dutchman' whose influence appeared to extent! through much of official Washing. ton. The story of Botich's spending mostly by cash and money order rallier thnn by check proved lo be one of the sensational develop menus of the committee inquiry, Agents found BolicVTs cash purchases included: Monogrammed handkerchiefs at $4.50 each; dozens of shirts averaging around $30 each; cuff links Rl $47.50: and neckties at S7.50 each. Bolich's accounting of the source of his funds leaned heavily on loans and gifts—much of it from Routzahn, Tnt Harvester . -. J, C. Pennev Republic Steel .. Radio Socony Vacuum .

By ED FOLLAK CAIRO, Egypt (/HI—Premier MaJ. Gen. Mohammed Naguib's reform Cabinet today approved legislation ending another of Egypt's feudal institutions—the wakfs. This is a system established under Moslem law by which a person can bequeath an estate so that heirs and beneficiaries may receive the income but cannot sell or otherwise dispose of the estate it- elf. It, is estimated that about one- fourth of Egypt's farmland and >uildings are administered under his system. The nation has about six million arable acres. The wakfs are handled by a government ministry. Some are devoted to charities and institutions under Cabinet supervision. The reform government's proposed law would retain the charity estates. Liquidation of the wakf estates was considered essential to the sue- TRUCE cess of Naguib's plans to limit farm ownership to 200 acres per person. Persons owning more than 200 acres of land would have been barred from selling the excess as wakfs. Critics.of the system long have contended that the wakfs were a major obstacle in the path of Improving the country's economic standards. Under it, they declared, huge estates remained the hereditary property of relatively few wealthy families. Many of the most important wakf estates were under the control of ex-King f'.irouk, who was ousted July 26 by Naguib's military coup, and o the r mem hers of t he royal family. In another step, the government decided to pension off all government officials suspected of corruption even though there were charges or proof against them. Once pensioned off, they would be immune from prosecution. Lewis Calls Policy Meeting For Possible Coal Mine Strike WASHINGTON (fP) ----- John L. Lewis today summoned his workers' policy committee to meet here Mon- Negro Deaths (Continued from Page 1) diers captured by the Allies. Of some 20,000 Chinese in U. N. stockades, about 15,000 have said hey prefer death to rejoining Communism. The Reds insist that all 2 returned. "You demand as your price for an armistice that we hand over to you a few thousand Chinese who deathly afraid of returning to your control," Harrison told Nam II. "These are Chinese," he said, "whom you claim were fighting in Korea as volunteers. You deny they have renounced your side, but you are afraid to witness their voluntary expression of will. . . . You insist that these people can volunteer to support communism but cannot freely renounce it." The U. S. Eighth Army said the surrendering Chinese soldier began his dash to freedom in a stolen jeep about 20 miles south of Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea. He sped through 100 miles of Red territory and nearly ran down four Communist riflemen who tried to halt him as he entered the Pan- inunjom neutral zone. Capt. Joseph D. Foley of Astoria. N. Y., U. N. security officer, said the Reds "didn't fire, although their rifles were leveled." "Tlie man in the jeep came right through our area on the road, holding his hand up to show he wanted to continue on," related Foley, a policeman in civilian life. "We didn't stop him. He went down the road to the bridge at the edge of the Panmunjom zone." There, an American MP, Pfc Roy I-.. Thompson of St. Louis, said the Communist waved a small red flag. "I saw him coming fast and I just raised (closed) the barrier," Thompson said. Foley said the Communist smashed through the horizonta wooden bar. "He was determined to get throgh to where freedom lay — I guess."

The doors closed 30 minutes before the governor arrived, and police estimated another 1,000 people were left oulsidc. They heard the speech on the public address system. Stevenson's talk might have borne the title, "The Challenge of the Future." In 1972. he said, the population of the United Stales will increase by more than 30 million people. He asked what kind of a nation "do we want?" His answers: Housing — "I look forward to more and better housing for our people . . . The progress we have made under the policies \ve have followed must be continued so that all Americans will have an opportunity to get decent housing, and public,housing has a role to play." Health — "This new America will be healthier . . . We shall need more medical icsearch, more hospitals, more public, health agencies, more medical schools more doctors and nurses." Education — "We cannot stop until we have banished all Illiteracy and enlarged the educational opportunities of all the boys and girls in the land." Social legislation — "I look forward to an America which can take proper care of Its aged and its invalids, and which can pro vide strong and expanding socia security for all workers . . . : agree you can't bring about pros perity by discouraging thrift, bu I don't believe our public assis lance programs have had that el feet." Civil Rights — "We can nevei stop in the battle agsinst racia and. religious bigotry, discrimination and fear ...

This leads to the logical question as to where Steven- eon stands on Byrd (of Virginia), George (of Georgia) and McCarran (of Nevada).
