AUGUST 24, 1950 Tydings Predicts Senate Vote on DMT in 2 Weeks Pro*peets for Action By Houtt Remain Bleak at Present ^WASHINGTON, Aug. M, (/Pi — L W"ator Tydlnjj ID-Md) predicted today ihe Senate will get a chince to vote on Universal Military Training lUMT) within two weeks. Prc*- pects for House action ire bleak. Tydlngs told a reporter he thinks tile senate Armed Services Committee, which he heads, will approve a bill next week. He said he will move to bring it before the Senate the following week. Another Democratic leader said this fits administration plans. Military leaders have «td manpower demands of the Korean fighting will prevent any early stajt on universal training of young men. The bill before Tydings' committee would authorize the President to say when it should start. In anothei form, these same man- !>o\ver demands were said to foe delaying moves to Integrate ground troops from other nations into the Korean defense line, now being held by Americans and South Koreans. Some of a'fjroup of seven Senators who lunched with Secretary ot Defense Johnson yesterday for a review of the military situation said they came away with the impression that it may be some time before troops offered by other nations participate in the actual figi.vtmg. Commander too Busy American field commanders a too busy fighting off Communist attacks to carry out the delicate op€ ions of meshing operations of e troops with different equip- t, different languages and different fighting tactics, Senators said they were told. Johnson was reported to hive told the seven, all Republicans, that he believes the American-South Korean defense line is stabilized anc there now is no danger tha't the defenders will be pushed ofl the . peninsula. The military manpower punch 'meanwhile 1 ;' brought suggestions from some Republicans that the UMT bill be stripped of its operating code and passed in the torm of a Congressional'mandate to stan the training at ft later dat*. . This proposal would leave up to a commission the task of working out details of how the training would be carried out. Congress then would pass on these recommendations next year. Chairman Vinson (D-Ga) of tiie House . Armed Services Committee has said his 'group won't even consider' the measure' until the senate acts on it.- '- 600-Pound Fish Gets Artificial Respiration 3 Hours But Dies PHILADELPHIA. Aug. U.

J., 67 miles from Philadelphia, and helped (hem haul In the 600-pound, five-foot sun fish in their nets. Volk immediately volunteered to drive the fish to the Philadelphia Aquarium to give him to his friend, vocateri Harry p. Lindaman, the aquarium superintendent. He placed the fish In a tank- trailer attached to his car and hurried to Philadelphia. The fish displaced so much water In the lank that from time lo time Volk stopped to add more water to the tank On its arrival, the giant fish looked none too healthy. Lindaman ii~*» ITJ.^ pieced in a tank, nine by 18 feet, and the fish quickly sank to the bottom, | At Lindaman's suggestion. Volk Jumped into the tank to "walk" the I fish. To walk a fish, one places it | straight and gently moves it back ' and forth. i That didn't help much, so Linda- j "ini) siKvjcited artificial respira- I tion.

The six- foot one-Inch Volk stood in watei up to his shoulders, pushing his hands forward and backward. Somr 400 persons gathered to watch the rescue effort.

The fish was dead. Lindaman said the fish apparently had not been injured but hid suffered .from lack, of deep sea water on his trip here. "He was an aquatic animal, and he was out of his element," Lindaman, said. He explained that the fish, known as a sea cow hereabouts, normally makes his home on the ocean flooi and probably was Wept':,toward shore by the recent Atlantic hurricane. -- : : Ichthyologically speaking, a sea cow is a manatee, a different aquatic specimen. pease Stalin, you can't make treaties with him and you can't believe him," Chester Davis, president of the Federal Reserve Bank ot St. Louis, last night told Uie Arkansas Bankers Seminar at ihe university that he does not expect peace In his lifetime, "It is lime we quit kidding ourselves in this country." he s»id.

Dean Died of Wounds, Buried by Natives By O. H. P. KING TOKYO, AUJ. J4. (*•)— There 1« a conviction imong some South Koreans that MJ). Gen. William F. Bean, missing ex-commander of th« U. S. 24th division, died of battle wounds ind wa« burled by friendly South Koreans. There is no official confirmation that. General Dean , U dead. He Is still listed by headquarters as miss- Ing In action since July 22 in the battle of Taejon. An unconfirmed story circulating among South Koreans, heard repeatedly before which' I returning recently from Korea to Tokyo, ran like this: The general escaping from was wounded after flaming Tiejon. A . Scuth Korean family gave him shelter and tried to nurse him back to health. But he died and was buried by his friends. They Mid nothing about u for fear of punishment by North Korean R*d* who occupy the area. It was felt thai If the North Koreans had captured the general, they would have boosted about it over their Pyongyang radio, as they have boasted of the capture of many Americans of leu«r rank. Stories published in Tokyo said thur'se headquarters disclaimed knowledge of such rejwrts. "We know nothing about it," »n Intelligence officer said. "I would like to know who the prisoners were «nd what (hey said." He normally is Informed promptly of field questioning of captives. The Tokyo stories that Dean was stabbed did not indicate how he »as identified or whether those telling the story were supposed to have Participated In the reported murder. All that Is known as reasonably certain is that General Dean escaped from Taejon unwounded. He left a party of his men on (lie hills outside Taejon to round up stragglers and lead them back to American lines. He hie not. been heard from since. English Youth Swims Channel DOVER.
