Douglas MacArthur have prepared a report on the hearing. Cain, a member of the armed services committee, said he was one of the signers of the document, but when asked if the others also are Republicans he evaded the question. Senator Russell, Georgia Democrat, who presided at the Mac-Arthur hearing, said yesterday he would call a meeting soon to decide if a formal report is needed. He repeated his own 3, previously expressed view that a report is not called for. He said the testimony had been given wide public attention. Asked if the report of the eight supports MacArthur, Cain said only that it presents the views of the signers as to the mistakes made in the far east. He cannot subscribe to the idea, he said, that the joint committee make no report to. the country after so long a hearing.

Instead nf a runway In front of him, he found Shamrock street. Hb laxied down Shamrock for Fear of Soviet Power Assailed By Eisenhower Strength of Free World Greater, He Tells Senators WASHINGTON, Aug. 12 UPl A senate subcommittee quoted Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower to day as saying the free world's strength is so overwhelming "it is aJiwost ridiculous for us to be talking in terms' of fright and hysteria." Eisenhower's assertion came de spite a finding by a foreign relations subcommittee that western Europe is lagging in building up its ground defense. It said, how ever, the western European nations have promised Eisenhower a 75 per cent increase in their north Atlantic pact army divisions by next year. In a formal report on its 14-day visit to Europe in July, the nine-member subcommittee said that Eisenhower, the north Atlantic treaty organization (N.A.T.O.) commander, told them, as of to day: "The material, intellectual, spir itual, technical and professional resources available to the free world are so overwhelming as compared to what the iron curtain and satellite countries have, that it is almost ridiculous for us to be talking in terms of fright and hysteria, which we often do." UNITY BY FORCE The senators said Eisenhower, with whom they conferred twice in his Paris headquarters, said the iron curtain countries do have a unity which the N,A.T.O. nations lack. . They quoted the general as declaring, however, that this is a unity "brought about by a gun and a sword held forever behind a man's back ready to chop off his head." Eisenhower told the visiting sen ators Ihat the job of the free nations -is "to convince every nation participaluic, every man in that nation. . . that, we are approach ' .. . , . me this thing from the slandpoin nC enlightened self-interest. TROOP RATIO HIT He added that if everybody be lieves "that what he is doing is good for him,- then we achieve unity."

The gunman, identified as James Alonzo Rogers, was captured with out a shot being fired at Sixth and Mission streets in downtown San B'rancisco. He had been wounded not seri ouslyin Ihe chest and left arm in the earlier shooting and was rushed to a hospital. Officers George Asdrubale and and William Lister, in a patrol car, spotted the fugitive, jumped out and pinned Rogers helplessly against the patrol car as he tried vainly to reach for his gun. The patrolmen warned they would shoot to kill if he continued to struggle. So he surrendered. The shooting began when police went to Rogers' home to question him about a gun battle earlier in the day in which police thwarted an attempted holdup of a motel. a few blocks, then turned on to Duarte road. Astounded Sunday motorists swung off the road to lot him pass. After about 200 yards of this, Sillasen turned again.

(AP Wirephoto) 500 on Train Escape Death Amazed Rescuers Find Few Injured KOUR OAKS, N. C, Aug. 12 t.f i - A fast. Miami-to-New York streamlined train carrying more than 500 passengers was wrecked today with three cars flying down a 20-foot embankment, but nobody was killed. "The most miraculous thing I've even seen," declared Dr. Watson Wharton, of Smithfield. "The steel cars saved the passengers." Other rescue workers voiced equal amazement. Nine persons were hospitalized and scores were treated for cuts and bruises, but many of the 25 ambulances which converged on the scene went away empty. The 18-car train, the Atlantic Coast line's East Coast Champion, was passing a rain-hit filled area two miles north of here when nine middle cars derailed without warning. The diner swung cross-wise on the double track and came to rest almost standing on its nose with one end buried in mud at the bottom of the bank and the other end in the air. At the bottom of the bank, rescue workers found one car up side down, another on its side and one upright. The other cars stayed on the right of way, although one turned over. Rescue workers made their way through all the cars and expressed astonishment the toll was no higher. Four Oaks is about 30 miles southeast of Raleigh, the state capital. A cloudburst hit the area Fri day. A railroad official said the en gineer saw nothing wrong with Ihe fill when approaching it. Anolher passenger train passed safely over the fill an hour ahead of the streamliner. The wrecked train was traveling 45 to 50 miles an hour.

Million German Youths in 'Hate Wesl' Parade Propaganda Show Outdoes Hitler's Biggest Spectacles BERLIN. Aug. 12 P More than 1,000,000 blue-shirted girls and boys, chanting loyalty to Stalin and hate for the west, staged a giant parade in East Berlin today in a propaganda show that outdid Hitler's biggest spectacles. The high point of the 14-day Communist world youth peace festival came to an end after nine hours of steady marching past the reviewing stand in Marx-Engels Platz, the red square that formerly was the Lustgarten. Western precautions against violent incidents were unnecessary. Not a stone was thrown in anger all day. The Russian - control led East Geman news agency said 2,000,-000 youths participated in Ihe giant demonstration 1,500,000 who marched in the parade and 500,000 who acted as spectators and saved their strength for shouting slogans. Western observers thought the figures were somewhat exaggerated. mis exceeaea an eipnauunj,, said the news agency, adding that 35,000 delegates had come from West Germany and 22,000 from other foreign countries. High German Communists, President Wilhelm Pieck, Premier Otto Grotewohl and party boss Walter Ulbricht and their Soviet guests, had seats of honor for the review. The marchers and cheering sections kept up a steady din of shouting "Long live Stalin," "Ami (Americans), go home," and "Ami, get out of Korea." Coming in seemingly endless waves, many abreast, the paraders carried floats, banners and carica- : hires lamhasting President Tril-iman, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and the West German leaders, Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and Socialist Kurt Schumacher. SHOUT 'HELGOLAND' Several floats made capital of British use of Helgoland island as a practice bombing target, and thousands shouted "Helgoland" just as Nazis once shouted "Danzig" when Hitler was plotting his war against Poland. The celebration, dedicated to resist West German defense aid to the west, got off with an ear-splitting martial racket from the firing of rockets which reminded Berliners of the Russian storming of their city six years ago. Other rockets loosed parachutes which floated down with the flags (Continued on Page 2, Column 7) Transport Brings 415 Veterans From Korea SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 12 UP) The transport ship Gen. W. F. Hase arrived today with 415 Army veterans from Korea, most of them returning under the rotation plan. They were among 1,485 servicemen, dependents and civilians returning from Korea and Japan. William M. Boyle's statement here that he finds the concensus around the country to he that "Mr. Truman is the desired candidate of Democratic party members." Boyle said, however, that Mr. Truman hasn't said whether he'll be a candidate. Boyle, arriving on a vacation trip, was met by California state chairman Glenn Anderson of Hawthorne, who presided at thei later meeting of the executive j committee. Political experts wondered whether the action was the work of the so-called liberal faction of state chairman Anderson and national committeeman James Roosevelt to take the play away from the conservative Democrats led by Ed Pauley and state vice chair man George Luckey. Another guess was that it: was a shrewd move engineered by Roosevelt to get him back in good graces with Truman. The Jate president's eldest; son had a ses sion in the Truman political doghouse after speaking up for General Eisenhower at the 1948 convention. Reds Reject U. N-Offer to Take Up Another Subject MUNSAN, Korea, Aug. 13 (Monday) Allied and Communist truce delegates failed today for the thirteenth straight session to unlock the thorny issue of a buffer zone for Korea. An allied spokesman said today's meeting was "an unproductive session." He also said the reds rejected an allied offer to set asida temporarily the buffer zone issue. " j The meeting at Ihe truce city nf Use Atom Bomb, Truman Urged By Congressman WASHINGTON, Aug. 12 P Representative Rivers, South Carolina Democrat, announced today that he is preparing a messagi to President Truman urging that the atom bomb be used "from the 38th parallel all the way to Moscow" if Korean peace talks fail. "The reds have dedicated their lives to death and if that is what they want we ought to accommodate them," Rivers told reporters. The South Carolinian, a member of the house armed services committee, previously had proposed use of the A-bomb in the Korean war but he said Truman at that time told him the time was not right for any such drastics action. 1,400 Troops Land in Italy Red Strike Fails To Disrupt Arrival LEGHORN, Italy, Aug. 12 Fourteen hundred serious - fared American soldiers landed at this west, coast nort. todav. II was the first, large scale arrival of Ameri- can troops in Italy since allied armies liberated the country from fascism. Communist efforts to disrupt their arrival by a strike of 14,000 red-controlled dock workers failed. There was only the normal Sunday calm in this Communist-governed city beside the sunnv Tyrrhenian. All but 100 of the new arrivals left immediately by train to reinforce U. S. occupation forces in Austria.

Delegates called another round at It a.m. Tuesday 16 p.m. P.D.T. Monday). Each side went into the meeting sparring for a soft spot in Ihe other's stand on a demilitarized zone. None was apparent. The reds want a buffer zona stretching along parallel 3S. The U. N. command has said it is asking a buffer area based generally along the present, battle line. Most of this is north of 3fi. Allied observers thought, they detected a more conciliatory atti-lude when the reds charted the conflicting demands on a map. The meetings had teetered for 1hree days on the brink of collapse until Sunday's session. Then North Korean Lt. Gen. Nam II, senior red delegate, acceded to a formal United Nations request for a map. CLOSELY STUDIED The 30x4S-inch document was closely studied at U. N. advance headquarters Sunday night. For the first time the reds had put on paper their concept of: 1. The present battle lines. red delegate, acceded to a formal. 2. The 38th parallel which the reds insist be the buffer demarcation line. 3. The II. N. command's "original and generalized" proposal for a demilitarized zone. However. Peinine- radin main tained a stiff attitude. An English language broadcast quoting its Kaesong correspondent said nn I progress can he made unless the ames. give up their ahsurd and jarrogant proposal and give serioin ;ronsideration to the just: and rea- sonable prorjpsal of our side." si t n in REPROACH It said Nam sternly reproached the U. N. delegation Sunday for persisting in the demand for a buffer zone inside Communist positions. Responsible sources said they believed that, while the reds were still vitally interested in drawing a demarcation line along the 38th parallel, they were even more in-terested in obtaining an armistice. For this reason it was believed the reds might retreat, from hoin original stand toward a compro mise. Brig. Gen. William P. Nuckols, U. N. briefing officer who attended the session, cautioned against optimism, hut pointed out that it was the first: time the Communists had been willing to place any ideas either their own or the United Nations on a map. Nuckols said that the red map, finally produced during a fi.l.minl ute talk by Nam, showed the Com munist idea of where the present fighting lines were located but (Continued on Page 2 Column 2) Nun PHILCO Duplex REFRIGERATORS Yours at Lower Cost Than Any 2-Dnnr nf the Past HANSEN PLUMBING & HEATING Fifth at G St. ph. 3-8133 1000 EMBOSSED nstcri Lfftwr BUSINESS CARDS T J.-n-Hl.trk nr Blll Nrt tits QQ Qr rim sim ti tpO.JO nHiT.rrt rtwn or Writ fnr Sumnl C4rd anil Tm S'vl rhart Baxter Office Supplv Co. m ISth St. at E Ph. 5-9597 Silk & Rayon DRESSES Beautifully Cleaned CARPENTER'S CLEANERS & DYERS 340 Highland Ave. Ph. 3-0442 Champion SEAT COVERS CUSTOM MADE WHILE U WAIT BKiiiUiAivr 1.UM1TB PLASTIC NO DOWN PAYMENT.
