STUDIO CALL IT QUITS HOLLYWOOD, Sept. 29 UP) Judy Garland and Metro-Goldwyn-Maycr studio called it quits today. The studio announced that the 25-ycar-old singing actress, who inflicted a throat wound upon herself last summer in a fit of despondency over her career, asked for a release from her contract and was given it. Louis B. Mayer, head of M.G.M., said the step was taken with "reluctance and regret and guided entirely by a desire to serve her best interests." "It was felt that every opportunity should be given to Judy for her complete happiness," May er stated. "It is with great reluctance that her request has been granted and we wish her all the success and happiness in the con tinuance of her career. Judy has been with us since childhood and our dorp devotion will remain." The break ended a 15-yoar association between one of Hollywood's brightest musical stars and one of the most powerful studios.

LVII, NO. 26 TWENTY, PAGES vSSES&ftS Hershey Urges Wide Expansion Of Draft Limits Wants Veterans, Men With Dependents, And Longer Service WASHINGTON, Sept. 29 UP) Major Gen. Lewis B. Hershey today urged that the draft be thrown open to veterans and men with dependents and that the length of service be stretched to 30 months. It is now 21 months. Hershey, director of selective service, also suggested that three months of basic training be given youths before they reach the draft age of 19. The official, appearing before the house armed services committee, talked of reaching a 1,500,000-man army in two or three years (apparently about doubling the present force). The committee is studying possible changes in draft regulations. POOL CUT DEEPLY Hershey said his pool of men under 26 years of age and eligible for the draft under present regulations is down to 1,500,000 and that the rejection rate under de fense department standards of men called before draft boards runs about 50 per cent. He recommended: 1. Extending the period of draft service, with six months to be snent in traininer and 24 monr'. : in enrvipn Thia umnlH rpnntp n''"5 ... . .. .v.,-..v 4... act of congress. 2. Changing the rules for deferment because of dependency so that collateral dependents wouldn't count. Selective service officials said that their use of the term "collateral" does not apply to wives, children, parents, broth ers and sisters. It docs apply to aunts, cousins, uncles and the like. However, Hershey later said there was a "possibility" that married men without children might be brought within the scope of the draft. VETERANS UNDER 26 The regulations, set up under the law by President Truman, now exempt from the draft a man with any dependents. 3. Changing the law to permit induction of veterans under 26. In this connection, Hershey observed "I've got a lot of sympathy for (Continued on Page 2, Column 4) Hudson's Prices Raised $98-$l22 DETROIT, Sept. 29 UP) Price increases ranging from $98 to $122 were announced today by Hudson Motor Car Co. The increases, effective on Hud son's 1951 models soon to be in troduced, put the factory prices on the company's various closed body typos at from $1,773 to $2,330. The announcement attributed the increases to "greatly increased" production costs. day in 1935 and announced she was looking for a job. She got it. She was 10 at the time. She stayed to earn millions for . the studio and a place in the annals of show business for herself. She successfully made the tran sition from childhood to adult star dom. But in recent years she's been in and out of trouble. Bad health and nervousness have interfered with her screen work. M.G.M., which' suspended her several times, said after the throat cutting episode in June she "caused us embarrassment, delay, inconvenience and loss of morale among co-workers." Her manager said at the same time that she was broke. Since then, Miss Garland has vacationed in Sun Valley, Idaho, and the east. She returned here recently and has plans for radio appearances and possibly a personal appear ance at the London Palladium. Judy's latest film, "Summer Stock," received good critical ito tices and is reportedly a money maker. She has not announced any plans. i mm Rhee Smiles After Ceremony in $a Kl'TWXi !jri I ' in n I f"y""" President Syngman Rhee (right) of South Korea smiles happily after his capital of Seoul was returned to him by General Mao- Red China Wins U.N. Invitation Council Overrides American Opposition NEW YORK, Sept. 29 UB-The United Nations security council today invited red China to present its complaints of American aggres sion in person after Nov. 15. It overrode a Nationalist Chinese attempt to veto the invitation. The council's action resulted in two highly significant "firsts:" 1. The Chinese government at Peiping broke through a wall of opposition led by the United States, and won her fight to be present when her charges of U. S. aggression against Formosa are discussed. This does not mean the reds will take over the Chinese Nationalist seat in the U. N. 2. The council succeeded in finding a way to break the deadlock which has hamstrung it in the past when faced with the so-called "double veto." This last achievement was hailed even by delegations opposed to the invitation to red China. . U. S. Delegate Ernest A. Gross told newsmen that the council's action set a precedent' which would make it extremely difficult for the Soviet Union, which "in vented" the double veto, to abuse it in the future. Britain's Sir Gladwyn Jebb, council president, said after the meeting, "What we could do once, we can do again." Jebb, however, had supported the invitation to Peiping. Youth, 16, Tells How He Slew Aunt In Fit of Anger PHOENIX, Ariz., Sept. 29 UP) A 16-ycar-old Phoenix high school student tonight described how he beat his attractive aunt to death in a fit of anger. James Gordon Williams con- fessed to police he killed Mrs. Virginia Langford, 29-year-old widow, with a rolling pin after she had accused him of stealing money. Dick Alvarado, Phoenix juvenile officer, said the youngster signed a statement telling how he first tried to sell his aunt a radio last Tuesday, became angered during an argument with her over money, attacked her and then hid the murder weapon on the Phoenix Union High school grounds. Police found it in a sack in a bush.

Know-land told the Rotary club here today. He predicted congress will vote $10 billion when It reconvenes, and another $10 billion will not be far off. "The defense bill as it stands Is only a first bite," he said, "and the American people may es well know it." Senator Knowland repeated his warning that we must continue to "close the door on communism" in Asia as well as Europe and "show the Kremlin that we mean business from now on." Missouri Chief Denies Reports KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 29 (IP) Governor Forrest Smith of Missouri told the Kefauver senate crime investigating committee today that there is "absolutely no truth" in reports slain Charles Binaggio attempted to control the Kansas City police department. Smith, who yesterday told reporters at Jefferson City that he "definitely" had heard nothing from the committee, appeared at the hearing at the beginning of the afternoon session. He testified for an hour. Smith said he had no knowl edge of: An alleged deal under which Roy McKittrick, St. Louis attorney and former attorney general, would have withdrawn from the Democratic primary in 1948.

But she made port in Sasebo, Japan, under her own power after emergency repairs. A Navy spokesman said no information has been received here on what type of mine was struck or how it came to be in the area. He said it might have been a Japanese mine laid during World war II. RUSH TO RESCUE Other U. S. warships rushed to the stricken vessel and helped rescue crewmen blown overboard. A naval patrol plane dropped life rafts. The mishap occurred Wednesday afternoon, Korean time, while the Brush was steaming through the Sea of Japan, off the city of Tanchon, on the northeast coast of Korea. All the victims were enlisted men. One of the men blown over board swam to a nearby island. BIG RUHR CITIES SET FOR LITTLE HOT WAR BONN, Germany, Sept. 29 UP) West Germany's big Ruhr val ley cities battened down under siege-like precautions tonight in expectation of a little hot war between rioting Communists and police over the week end. But while the Communists made threatening gestures at West Germany and western Berlin, they evidently were having troubles of their own which could raise serious problems for them in their own rear. There were these developments: 1. A wave of unrest appeared to be sweeping the Soviet-created East German people's republic, with reports of growing resist ance to the Communists confirmed by the reds themselves. 2. Communist propagandists felt obliged to begin a campaign to ease the loss of face caused by the rout of the reds in North Korea. Communist strong-arm squads are reported poised in nine or 10 v. mo Lounttr. Ss a copy S1.&0 month Ul mi OP) The U. S. destroyer Brush injured.

The fugitive North Koreans, falling back behind the artificial boundary, were being shelled by South Korean artillery. A South Korean army spokesman said the war would be carried into North Korea if the republic's high command gives the order. I " When the republic's third di vision halted at the boundary a U. S. Eighth Army spokesman erroneously reported it acted on or ders of the Eighth Army to halt and regroup. But Lt. Col. Robert Thompson, U. S. Eighth Army information of ficer, said South Korea's own army command gave that order. The South Korean army already has operation plans prepared for a drive to the reds' capital of Pyongyang, 70 miles north of the 38th. Col. Lee Sun Koun, South Ko rean army spokesman, said he did not know whether the republic's chief of staff would await orders from the United Nations command or from the republic's government YANKS MOVE NORTH Elements of one republic divi sion were at the border. Elements of a second division were less than 10 miles away. Spearheads of two more divisions were a day or so from the 38th. All four were op erating up the eastern side of Korea. On the west side of Korea above liberated Seoul, United States forces moved within 24 miles of the boundary. The U. S. 187th airborne regimental combat team advanced north of Kumpo peninsula. It lies between the Han river and the sea northwest of Seoul. Today American light bombers attacked red troops and troop trains near Chorwon, 16 miles north of the 38!h parallel. The reds, defeated and disorganized in South Korea, were reported mass' ing forces in the Chorwon area. B-29s BOMB TARGETS B-29s also winged over North Korea today. They dropped 350 bombs on unspecified targets, Fighter planes strafed troops, trucks and buildings in Communist territory. Light bombers raided Chinnam po. the port for Pyongyang. The heavy cruiser Toledo bom barded a North Korean supply route and two Communist troop concentrations north of Seoul The 38th parallel, originally the dividing line between American and Russian occupation forces at the time of the Japanese surrender five years ago, is not recognized by either side. Both the United Nations-spon sored Korean republic and the Soviet-sponsored red regime al ways have claimed sovereignty over all Korea, but until the red invasion of June 25, the parallel was a real, even though unrecog nized boundary.

Action Unifying Korea NEW YORK, Sept. 29 UP Eight countries asked the United Nations today to speed action on unifying Korea, leaving to Gen. Douglas MacArthur the decision whether to send troops north to the China border to do it. While victorious U. N. military forces were poised near the 38th parallel, the eight-nation resolu tion was hurried into delegates' hands. Its flexible language in sures authorization for the U. N. forces to move northward. Britain was the prime mover of the resolution. The U. S. approves but is not one of the sponsors. The U. S. attitude is that past security council decisions have given the U. N. unified command under Mac-Arthur authorization to take the step. BITTER OPPOSITION The resolution would permit U. N. forces to occupy any part of Korea until conditions were stabilized and elections arranged for all the country. The Korean postwar plan, built around a U. N. commission of probably nine nations with Asian countries dominant in its makeup, must run the gantlet of bitter Soviet bloc opposition in the 60-n a t i o n political committee which takes it up tomorrow. India may join the Soviet group in opposition to authorization for going north of the 38th parallel. India's Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru said in New Delhi today that the function of U. N. forces was to defend South Korea and not to subjugate North Korea. WARNING SOUNDED South Korean government officials, here as assembly observers, predicted that "if U. N. forces don't go into North Korea to smash the Communist armies, they'll regroup and be back at tacking us in five months."
